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

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

Understanding Risk Tolerance Is Essential for Investment Success
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:17AM / Wednesday, September 26, 2018

To succeed as an investor, you might think you need to know about the economy, interest rates and the fundamentals of companies in which you would like to invest. And all these things are indeed important. But it's most essential to know yourself. Specifically, you need to know how much risk you are willing to tolerate to achieve your goals.

Of course, you've lived with yourself your entire life, so you probably have a pretty good idea of your likes and dislikes and what makes you comfortable or uncomfortable. But investing can be a different story.

Initially, you may believe you have a high tolerance for risk, but if the financial markets drop sharply, and you see that

Police Director Michael Cozzaglio explains the difficulty in recruiting police officers through the Civil Service list.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday voted to dissolve its Police Department's participation in Civil Service, following in the path of surrounding communities.

City officials have discussed leaving Civil Service in the past, citing difficulties in recruiting officers who are often from the eastern end of the state.

"Civil Service has been here in the city since somewhere around 1940 ... Civil Service in Massachusetts came in 1884 so it's been around 124 years," Police Director Michael Cozzaglio said. "It's old, it's

04:30PM / Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Gov. Charlie Baker helped break ground on the $13.7 million project.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Shawna Axenroth and her daughter go hiking in the scenic Berkshire Hills and talk about the environment. They run science experiments in their kitchen.

And they are both looking to pursue scientific careers.

Axenroth is at Berkshire Community College and her daughter is just starting the first year of high school. They both want to live and work fruitful careers in the science field in their hometown.   But the way it has been going in the region, there hasn't been much reason to be optimistic about that prospect. The population has been declining, particularly with the younger
