NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Airport Manager William Greenwald said because of the helpfulness of local pilots during the recent brush fire, the city may purchase aviation handheld radios.

Greenwald told the airport commissioners recently that many pilots were able to fly police, firefighters and Mayor Richard Alcombright over last month's brush fire to give them a vantage point.

"The city police and fire directors were given a lot of rides to view and orchestrated fighting the fire," Greenwald

NoCo Pastaria is a new Italian restaurant located next to the Stop & Shop on State Road in North Adams.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It's the size of a small suitcase, and it's tucked away in a basement.

But that doesn't mean the $8,000 imported Italian pasta machine is anything less than critical to the newest restaurant to hit the North Adams dining scene.

"It's the heart and soul of NoCo," said Robert Beuth, who along with Jane Patton has opened NoCo Pastaria (think "pizzeria," only "pastaria") at 896 State Road. The restaurant, located next to the Stop & Shop plaza, housed the La Veranda restaurant for many years then Isabella's

The notes of the Fed's April policy meeting, released this week, may have confused more people than not. The central bank committee revealed that they were unlikely to raise short-term interest rates in June. That statement could be taken as both a positive and a negative, depending on your investment position.

The official notice of a delayed rate hike was greeted with relief by some, although the markets had largely baked in that outcome. Many Fed Heads contend that a rate hike in September is still only a 50/50 proposition, while others argue any increase in rates won't happen until sometime next year.
