Winter Makes A (Relatively Timid) Debut in the Berkshires
12:51PM / Friday, November 08, 2019

In case you've forgotten what winter feels like, step outside today.

The highs for Friday in the Berkshires will barely reach 30 degrees, with snow flurries possibly filling the air, too. Many of us woke up this morning to snow on the ground, too: The National Weather Service out of Albany, N.Y., reported .2 inches in Great Barrington.

This weekend will be chilly but slightly warmer than Friday, with Saturday's highs in the upper 30s and Sunday reaching into the 40s.

But everyone is looking at a potential snow event next Tuesday (see the AccuWeather map below), so we here at iBerkshires.com will keep our eyes on that.

Just to jog your memory, last week saw the first National

'Motherless Brooklyn': Yes, Collusion
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:35PM / Thursday, November 07, 2019
Borrowing a smidgen of wiseacre snazziness from "The Maltese Falcon" (1941) and an acidic splash of scandal from "Chinatown" (1974), Edward Norton writes, directs and stars in the best film noir detective yarn to come down the cinema pike since "The Usual Suspects" (1995). And in the process, he probably puts himself in consideration for an Oscar via his Tourette syndrome-afflicted gumshoe, Lionel Essrog, deprived early in the doings of his only friend and mentor, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). So, we're talking loyalty, revenge and all the stumbling blocks those corrupt powers that be will toss in Lionel's way to deter his retribution, all done to the

The Independent Investor: Fringe Benefits Important as Paycheck
By Bill Schmick,
04:31PM / Thursday, November 07, 2019
Most of us know to the penny how much we made last paycheck, but how many of us know the details of our fringe benefits? Not many, I suspect, and that is a big mistake.   Retirement benefits are available to 77 percent of private industry workers and 91 percent of state and local government employees as of March 2019, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Back in the day, offering perks to workers was a way to stand-out from your competition, but today they are essential tools of recruitment. And countless studies have shown that these benefits are a means to engage employees and increase productivity. That all sounds good on paper but in real life things may be
