BOSTON — A bill to expand the Lafayette Trail through the Berkshires is expected to be signed soon by Gov.

Snoopy's Sopwith Camel rises above the under-construction parade floats at the old City Yard.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Float guru Bruce Hayden has been racking up hours at the former city yard on Ashland Street putting the finishing touches on a convoy of floats that will appear Sunday in the 63rd Fall Foliage Festival Parade.   And he is happy about this year's theme: "The Year of the Dog."   "Normally they do something like 'Foliage in the Berkshires' but how many times can you make a leaf," Hayden laughed as he ripped knobs off a grill to be used for one of the floats. "You want to make the kids laugh. They don't want

@theMarket: The Market's Last Quarter
By Bill Schmick,
04:29PM / Friday, September 28, 2018
Today marks the end of the third quarter for stocks in 2018. But it is the fourth quarter that will determine what kind of year it will be. Let's place our bets.   First, we should look at what could go wrong over the next three months. Tariffs probably lead the list. More of them, (although the dollar amount is minimal in the scheme of global trade), would be bad for sentiment within the global stock markets. Mid-term elections are a toss-up, but simply not knowing the outcome I count as a negative. Quarterly earnings results might also hold some risk for investors. And finally, the latest investor sentiment readings (a contrary indicator) are as high as they were back in January

Markey Proposes Legislation to Restore Berkshire TV Lineups
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:12PM / Friday, September 28, 2018

U.S. Rep. Edward Markey said the Berkshire customers should get both stations. PITTSFIELD,  Mass. — Two flags decorated microphones at the podium in the City Hall chambers Friday morning.   One was Springfield-based WWLP Channel 22 and the other was Albany, N.Y.-based WNYT Channel 13.   One major difference between the two is that no one who lives in Berkshire County could watch the Massachusetts station on cable television to hear the press conference at Pittsfield City Hall.    Spectrum cable pulled Channel 22 from its lineup earlier this year, as well as WCVB Channel 5 out of Boston. Spectrum subscribers in the Berkshires on Friday weren't able to

Regional Workforce Development Plan Rolling Out
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Friday, September 28, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Workforce development professionals are taking a deeper dive into building the region's health care, hospitality, and manufacturing industries.   It isn't that other sectors aren't important but that the Baker administration has tasked local officials to develop a blueprint for workforce development with specific industries to focus a greater amount of attention.    Headed by the Berkshire County Regional Employment Board — which will soon have a much easier name to remember — county officials completed a plan are now looking to implement it.   "We needed to prioritize two to three industries and two to three

North Adams Adopts Senior, Veteran Property Tax Programs
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:01AM / Friday, September 28, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday authorized the establishment of two pilot programs that would allow veterans and seniors to work off part of their property tax bills.    The council adopted the provisions of state laws for programs in which those age 60 or older can receive abates of up to $1,500 and veterans can receive abatements of up to $1,000 for their volunteer services. The roll-call votes were 8-1 on both orders.     The city had considered the program in 2013 but it never made it to Finance Committee.    Individuals can only participate in one of the programs at a time and are not eligible if they are already receiving some

06:40PM / Thursday, September 27, 2018

Mayor Thomas Bernard, Aimee and Owen Poirier and Christa Collier cut the ribbon.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Four-year-old Owen Poirier skipped along the hopscotch court doing exactly what the city is hoping children will do: get engaged with the activities along the new Born Learning Trail.

The trail that opened at Noel Field Athletic Complex last week isn't just for children, though. It's meant to be a family affair.

"This engages parents in their child's world of fun activities that also gets them ready for school while also getting exercise," said Amy Hall,  program director of the Family Center, a part of Child Care of the Berkshires.

The Independent Investor: Credit Freeze for Free
By Bill Schmick,
03:30PM / Thursday, September 27, 2018
It just got cheaper to freeze your credit files, thanks to the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act. But should you do it?   The law, signed by President Trump back in May, only took effect this month. It requires the three major credit reporting bureaus — Equifax, Trans Union and Experian — to drop the fees to freeze your credit. Those fees ranged from $3 to $10 per person, times three credit bureaus, plus more charges to "thaw" your credit. Consumers can now also un-freeze their files, either temporarily or permanently, free of charge.   Thanks to a recent spate of credit breaches, Congress felt it needed to do something about the
