'Nocturnal Animals': Subspecies: Human
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
02:38PM / Thursday, December 15, 2016

Imagine you are driving late at night on a desolate country road, hardly a speck of civilization in sight save for an occasional utility pole. It's spooky to begin with, but nowhere near as scary as when a car suddenly appears in your rearview mirror. You make a turn, just to see. The car follows. You make a couple more, random turns. There it is, right behind you. What's the odds? Your paranoia concedes to one of your worst fears realized. Surely you are being followed by the most deplorable, inbred ne'er-do-wells in creation.

Good thing this is merely the fiction within a novel that Susan, the female lead in director Tom Ford's "Nocturnal Animals," is reading.

Staff Reports,
11:42AM / Thursday, December 15, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Bagels Too is closing after nearly 30 years.   Owner Susan Gordon said she was unable to secure a new lease and will close in early 2017. Gordon has run the downtown eatery since 1987. But she has been looking to sell the store and retire. She is currently looking for a new downtown location.    "Really, this is an ideal opportunity for someone.

Gordon said.    "A move gives a new owner the chance to build Bagels Too as she or he envisions it. With our solid retail and

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:51AM / Thursday, December 15, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Recreational marijuana use is now legal for adults in Massachusetts.    But don't expect much of a difference, other than reading a few news stories or seeing some Facebook posts. While home use is now legal, retail stores won't be opened until at least 2018 and lawmakers have already toyed with the idea of delaying that timeline.   Thursday's legalization had almost been delayed but two days ago, Senate President Stanley Rosenberg and Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo issued a joint statement saying they had no intentions of doing that.   "The voters spoke in favor of legalized recreational marijuana on November 8th and we
