How Can You Help Your Kids Pay for College?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:37PM / Wednesday, August 08, 2018

It's still summer, but we're getting close to a new school year. One day, though, "back-to-school" will mean "off to college" for your children. Will you be financially prepared to help your kids cope with the costs of higher education?

Your first step, of course, is to know what you're up against, so here are some numbers: For the 2017-18 academic year, college costs (tuition, fees, room and board) were, on average, nearly $21,000 for in-state students at four-year, public schools and nearly $47,000 for students attending private colleges or universities, according to the College Board. And you can probably expect even bigger price tags in the years to

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Monday, August 06, 2018
This is the second in a series of interviews with the Berkshire delegation on legislative actions during this past session of the General Court.     LENOX, Mass. — State Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli thinks the House of Representatives had a very productive session.   But he is disappointed that two major topics were never fully addressed — health care and education.   The Legislature just completed the formal portion of the 190th session. While there will still be informal sessions, it is unlikely any major undertaking will take place until the new Legislature is in place in January. In the last two years, Pignatelli said the state did

Swallowtails and Purples Abound at Stoney Ledge
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
04:33PM / Sunday, August 05, 2018

Swallowtails looping and fluttering through the green woodland in this great

  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The massive criminal justice reform bill stands out as a highlight of the legislative session for state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier.   The Legislature just wrapped up its formal session on Tuesday night, concluding deliberations on most major pieces of law until a new Legislature takes over in January -- though there are still informal sessions during which bills can be passed.   Farley-Bouvier, representing the 3rd Berkshire District that encompasses most of Pittsfield, highlighted the criminal justice reform bill as one of the top undertakings lawmakers completed in the last two years.   "That has wide-ranging implications for most
