TurboProp Owner Pulls Donation Over 'Turmoil' at North Adams Airport
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
08:59PM / Thursday, June 21, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The airport's largest business is threatening to pull funding for a planned administrative building and file suit against the city over "turmoil" caused by convicted rapist Alex Kelly.   In a letter sent to the Airport Commission, Harry S. Patten Jr., owner of Turboprop East, expressed frustration that the fuel-farm lease for his company still has not been signed because the commission was "embroiled with an individual of dubious character and this is preventing them from properly functioning."   "Due to this turmoil, I am withdrawing my donation to fund the new FBO," he wrote. "Furthermore, if the Commission cannot


The Independent Investor: The Next Recession

05:27PM / Thursday, June 21, 2018
Over half the economists on Wall Street believe that by the end of 2020, we will experience our first economic downturn in years. If so, when might you begin to prepare for a rocky two-year period for all of us?   The good news is that we still have another year or so of stock market gains, job growth and more importantly, wage growth. As it stands, the U.S. is currently enjoying its second-longest economic expansion in history with an unemployment rate that hasn't been this low in decades. Wage growth, after languishing for years, is expected to top 3 percent by the end of 2018, while GDP could achieve greater than 3 percent this year and a further 2.5 percent next year.   So

SANFORD, Maine. —As the old Yogi Berra saying goes, “It ain’t over till it’s over”

The first six innings of the contest proved to be a pitcher’s duel. Andrew DiPiazza made his first NECBL start in Sanford after appearing in two games prior for the SteepleCats. The 6’7” senior had the Mainers almost under complete control, only allowing one run off of three hits with striking out six in his impressive outing. Mainers Ed Baram and and Ryan Twitchell manned

Below, a watercolor by Hansen of 'Cecropia Moth Lifecycle with Blackburnian and Wilson's Warblers.'  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — So majestic is Hyalophora cecropia in appearance and biology that our sylvan king of the realm is a fitting title.   Just how this regal silk moth can engineer survival despite an inborn handicap is to its credit all the more remarkable. That such a resourceful creature can change form, starting with a tiny egg advancing to an enticing armored caterpillar, to a

Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Wednesday, June 20, 2018

To the Editor:

Solstice announced that only 20 spots remain in a set of Barre solar gardens, giving Berkshire County households the chance to support local, clean energy and save on their electricity costs.

The projects, which together total 2 megawatts (MW) of production capacity, were built by Community Energy Inc., a renewable energy developer that has built nearly 700 MW of solar capacity in its nearly two decades of experience.

Submitted by Edward Jones,
02:07PM / Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Summer is here – and so is vacation season. Americans spend a lot on their summer getaways – more than $100 billion in 2017 alone, as reported in Travel and Leisure magazine. When you hit the road, you will enjoy getting away from your regular tasks, but there's one part of your life that should never take a break – your investments.

To keep your investments working consistently and efficiently for you, consider these suggestions:

* Match the right investment with the right "job." You hire an electrician to install a light fixture, you employ a plumber to clear a clogged drain, and you would not expect either one to work on the other's project. In a
