The Independent Investor: The Apple of Our Eyes
By Bill Schmick,
12:44PM / Friday, November 16, 2018
Go into just about any supermarket right now and what do you see? Bins and bins of gorgeous red, green, and golden apples. The harvest is overwhelming, but some apples are worth more than others.   If you are like me, an average consumer, it takes about 23 minutes to do my grocery shopping, according to Proctor and Gamble. During that spate of time, I buy an average of 18 items out of maybe 30,000 to 40,000 choices. I have little time to browse and, most of the time, I don't even check the prices, which brings me back to the apple cart.   You see, I value my fruits and vegetables. The more local, the better, because to me, the taste is everything. Until recently, I was partial

Long-Closed Gas Station to Reopen in North Adams' West End
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:33PM / Thursday, November 15, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The West End should soon have a gas station and convenience store soon after several years without.    The former Getty station at 330 State Road is being reopened as a Valero station and its convenience store will have some upgrades.    The station was closed in 2015 in preparation of demolition and reconfiguring the lot for a 4,000 square foot convenience store. But that never happened and the special permit lapsed last year.    The Planning Board and inspection services had reached out numerous times over the past couple years to find out what the plans were for that station and another at Eagle and Canal owned by the same company.

Time to Think About Year-End Investment Moves
12:33PM / Wednesday, November 14, 2018

We've still got a couple of months left in 2018, but it's not too soon to start thinking about some year-end investment moves that might benefit you.

Here are a few possibilities (although not all will apply to your situation):

* Add to your IRA. For the 2018 tax year, you can put up to $5,500 into your traditional or Roth IRA (assuming you are eligible), or $6,500 if you're 50 or older. If you haven't reached this limit, consider adding some money. You have until April 15, 2019, to contribute to your IRA for 2018, but why wait until the last minute?
