When Do You Need a Financial Adviser?
11:23AM / Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Are you a "do-it-yourselfer"? If you can take care of home repairs, lawn work and other types of maintenance by yourself, you'll save money and probably gain satisfaction. But you will almost certainly need some help in other areas of your life – one of which may be investing.

In fact, you could benefit from the services of a professional financial advisor at several points in your life:

* When you're starting out in your career: When you land your first "career-type" job, you will have some financial decisions to make: Should I participate in my employer's 401(k) or other retirement plan? (Hint: Yes!) If so, how much should I contribute? How can I

Hinds, Mark Re-File Bill Aimed To Help Volunteer Ambulance Services
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:50AM / Wednesday, January 25, 2017
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — A bill to change the staffing requirements of an ambulance service could be a game changer for struggling volunteer services.   But, the state Department of Public Health has opposed the bill in previous legislative sessions.   State Sen. Adam Hinds and state Rep. Paul Mark have sponsored a bill that would alleviate the requirement that two emergency medical technicians be on every basic life support transports. The change would allow for first responders, who are slightly less trained, to be drivers during those calls while a certified EMT handles patient care in the back.   "There are a number of communities in the district that bump up

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:26AM / Wednesday, January 25, 2017

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Finance and Facilities Subcommittee will recommend the School Committee approve moving Grade 7 up to the high school.

The move to consolidate resources will also relocate the preK program from Johnson School into the elementary schools and add one class.

The change to a preK-Grade 6 and Grade 7-12 reconfiguration will require a School Committee vote and the approval of the Massachusetts School Building Authority, which the school department is already pursuing.

Malkas said she had spoken separately with School Committee members about ways to consolidate resources before bringing the proposal to the subcommittee. There were two options: moving the preK

Clarksburg School Options Being Narrowed Down
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:51AM / Tuesday, January 24, 2017

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The School Building Committee is leaning toward one of two new options developed in response to feedback at its last meeting, when the initial plans for a renovated Clarksburg School were proposed.

Proposals E and F pick up on the concerns raised over the size of the primary wing and the need for a gym. The committee appeared heavily in favor of Option E, which included a rebuilt and expanded primary wing, a new kitchen and cafe, and a 4,000 square-foot gym, smaller than the 5,000 square-foot options.

Both those options will join the four prior schemes created by Jones Whitsett Architects along with the firm's review of the current building, the educational
