Naloxone, Rescue Breathing and CPR Training Series Scheduled
01:26PM / Friday, August 26, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A series of community naloxone (also commonly referred to as Narcan) trainings have been scheduled for all residents of Northern Berkshire.

Naloxone is an opioid overdose reversal drug that can be administered to someone experiencing an overdose from heroin or prescription opioid pain medication. Those who attend the training will learn to identify the signs of an overdose, determine if an overdose victim needs rescue breathing or CPR, perform rescue breathing and CPR, administer naloxone, and how to obtain low cost or no cost naloxone.

The trainings ensure that those who may witness an overdose will have adequate training to administer naloxone properly. In


The Independent Investor: The More You Look, The More You Lose
By Bill Schmick,
01:05PM / Friday, August 26, 2016

How many times a day, week, month or year do you check your tax-deferred savings account? Did you know that the more you look, the higher your chances of losing money? For most of us, once a year is more than enough.

There are clients of mine that check their retirement accounts several times a day. To say they are addicted to doing so would not be an understatement. Some of them are retired and have nothing else to do each day but sit in front of the television watching financial channels. They are usually male, have control issues and have substituted watching TV and their investment accounts for their old job.

The sad facts are that the more you look, the higher the probability that

'Sausage Party": Food Orgy
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
11:57AM / Friday, August 26, 2016

Contemplating "Sausage Party," an R-rated, animated food orgy in more ways than one, I'm reminded of what a fellow journalist once opined at a block party: "You know what's wrong with you film critics? You see so many movies that when you chance upon something different, you just go crazy."

Thus, I'm proud to report that while the very bawdy, irreverent, sometimes hilarious and ultimately overcooked "Sausage Party" is certainly different, I'm managing to contain myself. While featuring some fine writing and direction from a gaggle of popular, Hollywood humorists, perhaps it's the cartoon venue that inspires some of the deleterious

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:01AM / Friday, August 26, 2016

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The School Building Committee is anticipating voting on a school project next spring.

But first it has to get a design team on board.

Some 27 companies have indicated interest in the school district's request for services, said Brian Laroche of Potomac Capital Advisors, the school district's owner's project manager.

The application date is Aug. 31; the committee will review the applicants on Sept. 14 and three representatives — Superintendent Jon Lev, Select Board Chairman Jeffrey Levanos (as authorized by the board) and Laura Wood, filling the procurement seat on the committee — will meet with the Massachusetts School Building


Baker Highlights Craft Industry With Trip to Berkshire Mountain Distillers

05:30PM / Thursday, August 25, 2016

The governor bellies up to the bar to become the first customer to purchase a cocktail from the distillery — thanks to new legislation making that possible. SHEFFIELD, Mass. — Twelve years ago Chris Weld had grown tired of his work in emergency rooms. So, he moved back to Massachusetts and bought an apple farm.    With all of the products he needed right on site, Weld started to distill. He makes whiskeys, gins, vodkas and other spirits. In 2007, he turned it into a business — Berkshire Mountain Disillers. The company began to grow and two years ago he opened a tasting room and store along with a new distillery. He now employs eight people and ships his


North Adams Airport May Try New Management Style
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
03:18PM / Thursday, August 25, 2016
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Airport Commission may look at a new management model that could possibly generate revenue and sustain staff.   Commissioner Trevor Gilman said Tuesday that with all of the improvements to Harriman & West, it may be beneficial for the city to work out a one-time lease agreement of the public ramp space to Teamflys, which provides various aviation-related services at the airport.   He said this would clean up billing and move the airport toward a self-sustaining management model.   "It is the first step to a complete management model where the airport could have the revenue to support full-time staffing," Gilman said. "I think

Senator Downing at the governor's signing of the energy diversity bill earlier this month in Boston. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Benjamin Downing is happy with the state's new energy bill but feels it doesn't go far enough.   Just before the July 31 end of the formal legislative session, the state passed an omnibus energy bill which increases hydro-electricity, off-shore wind, and raises the net metering cap for solar, among the many provisions.   Downing headed the state's Telecommunication, Utilities, and Energy Committee and spent a lot of time during the two-year session on it. He filed a bill that was aimed to significantly boost the state's


North Adams Councilors to Tour Public Services Buildings
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
09:54PM / Wednesday, August 24, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — City councilors will be touring the city's public service structures as the administration lays out the reasoning to spend some $1.5 million to consolidate everything at the former anodizing plant at Hodges Cross Road.

The City Council on Tuesday was presented with a purchase-and-sales agreement of $995,000 with 59 Hodges Cross Road LLC for the structure and its 30-some acres. Another half-million would go toward further updating and transforming the 85,000 square foot building to hold the several different departments and activities.

The council voted to postpone discussion on the agreement until after touring the City Yard and other public service
