By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
05:31PM / Friday, January 20, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Airport Commission has voted to move all glider and tow-plane activity to the south side of the runway.   The commissioners unanimously voted on the issue Tuesday even though they had concerns about letting the tow plane operate in an area designated for ultralight aircraft.    "The whole point was to separate the planes by their speed and now you put the tow plane in with the gliders," Commissioner Trevor Gilman said.

'Hidden Figures': Amounts to an Important Tale
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
12:51PM / Friday, January 20, 2017

Watching director Theodore Melfi's "Hidden Figures," about the African-American women working for NASA who were instrumental if not indispensable to getting our first man in space, we scratch our heads and can't help but ask ourselves, "How come I didn't know this?" But figuring the truth here isn't rocket science.

So many years after the fact, it's the same depth of prejudice that hampered Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson and their sister colleagues from convincing the space agency of their genius that has squirreled away their story.

This is a civics lesson, especially important at this tremulous juncture when a sizable portion

What Should You Know About Taking RMDs?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:59AM / Wednesday, January 18, 2017

As we get older, the end of another year takes on greater meaning, in many ways, than it did when we were young. And if you're a certain age, Dec. 31 has a very specific meaning in terms of your finances, because it's the deadline for withdrawing money from some of your retirement plans. What should you know about these withdrawals? And how much control over them do you have?

Here's the picture, in a nutshell: Once you turn 70 1/2, you generally need to start taking withdrawals – the technical term is "required minimum distributions," or RMDs – from your traditional IRA and your 401(k) or similar plan, such as a 403(b) plan (for employees of pubic

Berkshire Planning Receives DLTA Funding To Help Towns With Projects
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
02:53AM / Wednesday, January 18, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — BRPC finally got its local assistance funding and more than 25 towns have requested help.   The funding for District Local Technical Local Assistance program was questionable over the last few months as the state pondered budget cuts to address shortages of revenue. The state provides $2.8 million to regional planning committees to help towns with an array of planning projects.   But, late into 2016 the money hadn't been released and the governor was in the process of making budget cuts.   "The DLTA funding was spared from 9C cuts and I signed our contract on Dec. 15 and we are waiting for the signed contract back. With the holidays, that
