Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Jay Ash provided the commencement address. See more photos here. LENOX, Mass. — Housing and Economic Development Secretary Jay Ash turned his back on the crowd on the stage at Tanglewood Friday night, pulled out his phone, and snapped a selfie.   Behind him sat 271 soon to be college graduates with hands in the air, looking up at the camera, cheering and laughing at the selfie. It worked. It lightened up the crowd. It was a fan favorite.   But Ash already knew it would be. He's done the same things in a number of settings across the Commonwealth. And he freely admitted that wasn't the first time because it is a

@theMarket: Another Week of Market Volatility
By Bill Schmick,
04:29PM / Friday, June 01, 2018
As the month wound down, so did stocks. Pronouncements from Washington dominated the market's direction on a daily basis. We can expect to see that trend continue as the summer doldrums reduce liquidity and exaggerate market swings.   The adage of "sell in May," however, did not fulfill the bears' expectations this year.   Actually, the month of May has been pretty good for stocks recently. The S&P 500 Benchmark Index gained a smidge over two percent for the month this year. That's not to say those gains were easy. The stress level for those who are trying to trade this market is through the roof.   And that's because two opposing trends are

04:29PM / Thursday, May 31, 2018

Victoria Beaupre tells how her experience with the Fall Festival of Shakespeare changed her personally.  LENOX, Mass. — State Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli remembers when Lenox residents couldn't wait for the Tanglewood crowd to finally go home at the end of summer.    That was back when General Electric in Pittsfield employed 12,000 to 13,000 and the cultural attractions were more a matter of pride than the economy.    "Then General Electric and the papers mills started to cut back and go away," he said Thursday morning at Shakespeare & Company's Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre. "We transformed ourselves, we pulled in

By Bill Schmick,
04:05PM / Thursday, May 31, 2018
A political crisis in the fourth largest economy in Europe has spilled over into the financial markets. Global stock exchanges greeted Italy's present political dysfunction by registering major declines — and the crisis may just be getting started.   Back in 2010 through 2012, readers may recall a similar eurozone calamity. Greece was at the center of that maelstrom and, at its worse, threatened the viability of the European Union and its currency, the Euro. This time around, many of the same issues are now bedeviling Italy. The country has the third largest debt load in the world after the U.S. and Japan. It still suffers from double-digit unemployment while their
