By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
02:14AM / Thursday, September 20, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Airport Commission only received two bids for the Administrative Building renovation project.   Peter Enzien of Stantec Consulting Services, the airport's engineer, told the commission Tuesday that bids were opened Sept. 7 from DA Sullivan & Sons of Northampton and Burke Construction of Adams.   "We received two bids, which was a little bit of a surprise based on the interest," he said. "We thought we would get four or five."   Enzien said close to 80 different companies had responded to the project and pulled bid documents so the drastically lower number was surprising.   DA Sullivan & Sons is the low

Women Business Owners: Don't Forget About Your Retirement Plan
Submitted by Edward Jones,
01:24PM / Wednesday, September 19, 2018

American Business Women's Day is celebrated on Sept. 22. And there is indeed cause for celebration, because, in recent decades, the number of women business owners has risen sharply, to the point where nearly 40 percent of all businesses are now women-owned, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

If you are one of these owners, or thinking about becoming one, you'll always have a lot to think about when running your business, but there's also an area you can't ignore – your retirement. Specifically, you need to consider establishing your own retirement plan.

Most plans available to you are fairly easy to establish and maintain, and are not terribly costly to

North Adams Considering Consolidation of Recreation Boards
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:11AM / Wednesday, September 19, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — City officials are mulling the idea of consolidating oversight of all its recreation areas under one commission.    The Parks and Recreation Commission oversees all the sports facilities and public parks in the city but not Windsor Lake or Historic Valley Campground, which have their own commission. It also doesn't have much to do with the Armory or the Peter W. Foote Vietnam Veterans Memorial Skating Rink.   "It was discussed with the past administration about having a board to oversee the rink but I think my thing was instead of having multiple boards to oversee ... seems like from the Armory to the skating rink to Windsor Lake to the

Guest Column: The Explosion of Vaping and Youth Use
By Joyce Brewer, Guest Column
07:00PM / Tuesday, September 18, 2018

To the Editor:

Last spring, I was inundated with requests from curious and concerned parents and schools about vaping. Vaping among youth had skyrocketed. Particularly I heard questions about the use of one product, JUUL, and adults were trying to figure out how to respond. Many had no idea that vaping products contain nicotine that can damage a teenager's developing brain and lead to addiction.

As young people go back to school this fall, some schools will have developed successful strategies to address this public health issue and yet new challenges will need to be addressed as the tobacco and vaping industries continue developing new tactics to addict young people to nicotine;
