The Independent Investor: The Price Tag of Disaster
By Bill Schmick,
03:46PM / Thursday, September 14, 2017
Over the past four weeks, just two hurricanes have cost the country upwards of $300 billion. This has easily surpassed the 2005 hurricane cost of $200 billion, which included Katrina, Wilma and Rita combined. The cumulative cost of weather continues to escalate and with good reason.   Before you leap to the conclusion that global warming is the culprit, let me lay out some facts. Coastal storms are no more (or less) frequent an event now than they have been throughout our history. So what gives?   The answer lies in population growth and demographics within our own society. A few years ago, a study funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, found that although

Letter: Tom Bernard - A Great Next Mayor for Our Great City
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Wednesday, September 13, 2017

To the Editor:

"Having a child will change your entire life." Until recently, I didn't realize how much that statement stands true, then, in July, we welcomed our first-born child to this world. With him came a world of opportunity, potential, joy, and challenge. He needs to be nurtured and guided, but given freedom to sprawl and author his own experience in life too.

How does this relate to the current mayoral race in North Adams you ask? Well, much like a child, our community has immense potential. There are opportunities happening around us, coming up right in front of us, and others yet to be discovered. These breadcrumbs of potential are what will continue to help our

Letter: Clarksburg School Project Not a Good Investment
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Wednesday, September 13, 2017

To the Editor:

As a homeowner in Clarksburg who has young children I took a great interest in your recent article regarding the proposed Clarksburg $19M school project.

I believe greatly in investing in infrastructure and in education particularly. As a father to two special education students I am especially sensitive to the importance of public schools being able to well serve their local populations.

At the same time I believe in looking at fiscal responsibility seriously, trying to fairly weigh what is likely a good long term investment versus that which is a risk level that perhaps raises too many red flags.

From the start it is troublesome that it was explained that a 40-year

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:56PM / Wednesday, September 13, 2017

The tags attached the bush have the names of those to be remembered. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The gardens at the Mary Spitzer Center got a little bit bigger on Tuesday with the dedication of a variegated dogwood near the south entrance.    This bush, however, was special in that it also carried the memories of departed loved ones, their names written on small cards cut out in the form of doves.    The short ceremony attended by about two dozen people was part of the bereavement services offered by HospiceCare in the Berkshires.   "It's for people to have an opportunity to honor their loved ones who are no longer with us," said HospiceCare's

Protect Three Key Goals With Life Insurance
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:28AM / Wednesday, September 13, 2017

September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. And "awareness" is an appropriate designation, because many people remain unaware of the many ways in which life insurance can help families meet their key financial goals. Here are three of the biggest of these objectives, as seen through the eyes of a hypothetical couple, Jim and Joan:

* Pay off mortgage: Jim and Joan have a 30-year mortgage. If one of them dies well before that mortgage is paid off, could the other one afford to keep making payments to remain in the house with the children? It might be quite difficult – many families absolutely need two incomes to pay a mortgage, along with all the other costs of living. At
