Attorney Guides Towns on Local Options For Marijuana Regulation
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Friday, September 01, 2017
LENOX, Mass. — Attorney Raymond Miyares is advising towns to adopt moratoriums on recreational marijuana — six months ago.   Miyares is legal counsel for a number of towns across the state. He says the timeline for implementation of recreational marijuana is putting towns in the position of being "stampeded" with little chance to regulate.   "It seems to me that most towns are not going to be ready to write their zoning bylaws next spring," Miyares said.   But that's when something will need to be on the books in order to limit where such facilities can go. The law allows for marijuana retail to be allowed anywhere a town is zoned for

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
05:47PM / Thursday, August 31, 2017
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The grateful family of Keith W. Laughlin on Thursday received the bust carved by his longtime friend.   Gail King delivered the sculpture carved by her late niece, Ruth Ellen, to Laughlin's mother, Karin Morandi, at the home of Morandi's daughter, Kris Bona.   "I'm so glad we found you guys," King said.

'Wind River': Opens the Floodgates of Indignation
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
02:09PM / Thursday, August 31, 2017
Writer-director Taylor Sheridan's "Wind River," a murder-mystery inspired by true events, deserves plaudits not only because it is a skilled piece of filmmaking, but also owing to its eye-opening exposé of the disgraceful socioeconomic conditions on Native American reservations.   While the majority of Americans are more or less cognizant of the poverty that wreaks havoc in our urban ghettos, far fewer citizens are familiar with this rural brand of destitution ostensibly swept under the carpet of our national conscience. See it up close and the mind boggles.   Be warned, this is tough viewing. In service to its ugly divulgences, there are few punches pulled.

Are You a 'Hardworking' Investor?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:45AM / Thursday, August 31, 2017

Next week, we observe Labor Day, a celebration of the American worker. You work hard your whole life with the hope that your efforts will ultimately allow you to achieve your financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement. But for that to happen, you may need to apply some of the lessons of the workplace to your efforts as an investor.

Be consistent. The most successful workers are the ones who show up, day after day, and strive to overcome the inevitable obstacles that crop up. As an investor, you, too, need to be consistent in your habits – which means you should keep investing in all types of markets. If you take a

Holiday Hours: Labor Day
11:30AM / Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 4. Memorial Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities. 

Massachusetts was among the first states

True pizza lovers like to change up our beloved pie into all kinds of different combinations.

01:25AM / Wednesday, August 30, 2017

The memorial for Laughlin that was found with the bust. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Gail King needs your help.   When the North Carolina resident and New England expatriate returned to the area this summer to help clean out the home of the recently deceased Jean Ann King, Gail found among her things a bust sculpted by Jean's daughter, Ruth Ellen King, who died in 2013.   With it was a newspaper clipping with a memorial for the sculpture's apparent subject, Keith W. Laughlin.    And that is where the trail goes cold.   The clipping is not an obituary, which would list survivors, but a poem that only references Laughlin's "Mom, Step Dad,
