SVMC Seeks Hospital Artifacts, Personal Histories as Hospital Turns 100
01:13PM / Wednesday, September 20, 2017

BENNINGTON, Vt. — A handwritten letter describing a hospital stay. A nursing school graduation program. A photo taken of employees celebrating a retirement. Nothing communicates history like stories, photos, and objects from the time.

As Southwestern Vermont Health Care prepares to celebrate its centennial in 2018, its art and archives department is seeking photographs, memorabilia, medically related antiques, and even patients, long-time employees, and their family members to help document the health system's history.

"We are looking for people who were born here or worked here in the early days and who can share interesting stories and memories or objects from that

11:58AM / Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Women are an integral part of the workforce, but they have had to overcome many obstacles along the way.

Are you a woman considering "setting up shop"on your own? If so, here are five tips to consider:

* Balance your goals. It's possible – perhaps even likely – that your business goals will conflict with your personal financial goals. After all, if you’re purchasing new equipment or services for your business, you've got less money – at least for the time being –

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
07:22PM / Tuesday, September 19, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Thomas Bernard and Robert Moulton Jr. took top votes in Tuesday's preliminary election for mayor.   Bernard, the favorite going into the election, smoked his competition by racking up 1,045 votes to Moulton's 431 in a sparse turnout of 18 percent of the city's 8,646 registered voters.   None of the other three candidates — Rachel Branch, Robert Martelle and Peter Oleskiewicz — broke 100 votes.   "I'm overwhelmed with the support I received," Bernard said as he celebrated at Bright Ideas Brewing afterward. "You don't know what to expect until you've done it. It's powerful and I'm really

Guest Column: Why Are Smoke-Free Homes So Important?
, Guest Column
07:00PM / Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Secondhand smoke comes from a lit tobacco product, like a cigarette, cigar or pipe — and it's not just a nuisance — it's a health hazard and it's dangerous. 

Secondhand smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals and poisons, and at least 50 of these are known to cause cancer. It stays in clothing, hair, furniture, curtains, and carpets even after a cigarette is put out and can harm people who come in contact with it, especially children. Keeping your home smoke free is important to ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, guests, neighbors, and even your pets.

Secondhand smoke is dangerous, even if you can't smell it. Opening a window, sitting in a separate

Letter: First Berkshire District Needs John Barrett
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Tuesday, September 19, 2017

To the Editor:

A recent article in The Boston Globe titled "Tourism booms but locals struggle: Behind the two worlds of the Berkshires" simply confirmed what most of us already knew; while tourism and the second home market are growing substantially in the Berkshires, the poverty rate has risen by almost a third since the year 2000.

Livable wage jobs are few and far between and our population continues to decline. And probably the most frightening statistic was provided by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, which recently conducted a survey to learn more about the pressing issues facing our region. As mentioned in The Boston Globe column, Berkshire Taconic states that

Letter: Voting for Mayor, City Council More Important Than for President
Letters to the Editor,
05:00PM / Tuesday, September 19, 2017

To the Editor:

Yes, I said that correctly. The mayor and City Council elections are more important to you as it pertains to our community.

Let me highlight just a few reasons why voting in the mayor and city council elections are important to you:

1) Local changes have the greatest everyday impact. Local elected officials affect our day-to-day lives by dictating local laws, policies and budgets that you will benefit from. Examples include

a. Including safety and maintenance of streets we drive on
b. Approval of taxi drivers
c. Sales and purchase of city-owned buildings
d. Whether or not we plan on going green with a ban on plastic bags in grocery stores

2) Voting for who you want to

Education Task Force Keeps Focus on Creating Opportunities for Students
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:54AM / Tuesday, September 19, 2017
DALTON, Mass. — The Berkshire County Education Task Force on Saturday pressed forward less than 48 hours after one school district voted to step back from its participation in the effort.   The committee had a full agenda for its regularly scheduled meeting at Nessacus Middle School, but Thursday's decision from the Berkshire Hills Regional School Committee to withdraw from the task force colored the conversation.   Chairman John Hockridge opened the meeting by addressing the vote head on.   "I just wished they'd put off the discussion for one more meeting to give us the opportunity to tell them where we're coming from," Hockridge said of the
