@theMarket: Stocks Set for a Volatile August
By Bill Schmick,
04:23PM / Friday, August 03, 2018
This month would be a good time to go on vacation. Otherwise, you might be tempted to do something rash like chase stocks or sell at their lows. That is the kind of market volatility investors should expect in August.   The market's trading range is still intact and should continue and keep stock market values corralled into September and probably October.    We had our moves up to the old highs (or slightly beyond) in most of the averages in July. A combination of anticipated stellar second-quarter earnings and somewhat less rhetoric from the "Trumpster," allowed equities to notch their fourth month of gains. Second quarter earnings have come in as expected for

'Mission: Impossible-Fallout': It Takes All Kinds
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
12:57PM / Friday, August 03, 2018
"Why do bad people have to be bad?"   Thus spake my great nephew-in-law, Nate, 4, after recently seeing his first movie in a theater, "Incredibles 2." His other inquiry was whether or not the lights would come back on when the film concluded.   Well Nate, in answer to your first question, we've been working on that since time immemorial, both in real life and in fiction, and we have some theories ... none conclusive. Some scientists believe it's bad mommies and daddies that make bad people. And then there's the bad seed concept: the matter of an aberrant gene causing one to think they have not only the right, but nay, the obligation to bully people

Marauszwski, O'Bryan Lead Dalton to County Tourney Title
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
08:54PM / Thursday, August 02, 2018
DALTON, Mass. -- The Dalton 14-and-under travel softball team traveled a long way in a short period of time.   Morgan Marauszwski went 4-for-5 with a triple, and Kayle O'Bryan struck out eight in a complete-game effort and hit a three-run triple Thursday as Dalton defeated the Berkshire Blaze, 9-2, to win the Berkshire County Championship at Pine Grove Park.   It was a solid win to end the summer for a team that looked a little shaky when the season began.   “The first tournament we went to, we were awful,” Dalton coach Ken Pease said. “We learned so much since that tournament. We got mercy-ruled almost every game.   “We kind of regrouped, and

Licensing Board Puts A-Mart On Warning Following May Incident
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
05:22PM / Thursday, August 02, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Licensing Board has put A-Mart on notice after the store allegedly sold alcohol to a heavily intoxicated individual.   Police say on May 25, officers responded to the area for a report of a heavily intoxicated man stumbling in the street. Officers conducted a field sobriety test and the man blew a .32 — four times the legal limit — on a breathalyzer. The man had apparently just purchased alcohol at A-Mart moments before, which Capt. Michael Grady said managers at the store confirmed to the responding officer.   Selling alcohol to an already intoxicated individual is against the law and, while the man was walking and not driving, the

The Independent Investor: The Incredible Shrinking Stock Market
By Bill Schmick,
04:44PM / Thursday, August 02, 2018
There was a time, back in the late Nineties, that publicly-traded stocks were the envy of all companies, great and small. But times have changed, and since then the number of public companies have fallen by 50 percent.   You might have missed that trend, however. That's because the market capitalization of equities has been increasing for a decade. This year the market cap of the U.S. stock market hit a record $32.2 trillion. Globally, the World Bank estimates stock market capitalization is above $80 trillion. The largest contributor to this trend has been the large increases in stock prices.   Bottom line: investors are simply bidding up the prices of existing stocks in an

District Attorney Candidates Display Differences in Lengthy Debate
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:53AM / Thursday, August 02, 2018

Andrea Harrington promised to be a leader who inspires others to address the issues. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Judith Knight says she has "shown you what I am."   On Wednesday night, the candidate for district attorney boasted of some 30 years of work in the community. She stood as a defense attorney more than a dozen years ago for teenagers for whom she believed were inappropriately getting the book thrown at them from former District Attorney David Capeless for selling marijuana.   When those from the West Side neighborhood felt the same injustice was being served on young woman in 2007, Knight showed up again. In 2008, there was a similar call. In 2012, after a
