The holiday season is here, which means gift-giving is probably on your mind. In addition to making gifts to your family and friends, you also may be interested in contributing to charitable organizations. But before you donate financial assets, such as stocks, you will need to consider several factors, including taxes, your portfolio balance and the reputation of the charity.

Sweet potato with kale, dried fruit, brown butter and pecans.     WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It doesn't get much more local than Berkshire Palate, a family-run eatery that offers homegrown flavors.   Paul Brassard and his three sons Nolan, Aaron and Zach have had Berkshire Palate on the mind for some time now.   "Zach was making his own jams and spice rubs, so he was kind of outgrowing that," Paul said. "We always wanted a restaurant and once he went to culinary school then it went from 'it would be cool maybe someday' to 'when?'"    The Brassards looked at 13 locations but settled on 240A Main St. in the

Coding Error Pushed North Adams' Violent Crimes Stats Higher
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
07:16PM / Monday, December 03, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The bump in violent crime that led to the city being described as the most dangerous in the commonwealth for two years was caused largely by a bug.    A coding error discovered last month in the software used in crime reporting designated all assaults as felonies. Fixing it has dropped the number of aggravated assault cases so far this year by at least a third.   It's not that the incidents didn't happen, officials say, but rather the severity of the classification.   "Regardless of how you code these things, the total number of incidents we're dealing with isn't changing," Mayor Thomas Bernard said on Monday.
