PRP: New Treatment for Osteoarthritis
By Dr. Ivette Guttmann,
11:45AM / Tuesday, December 03, 2019

For years, treatment options for osteoarthritis (OA) were rather limited: exercise, anti-inflammatory drugs, cortisone injections, physical therapy and, in extreme cases, joint replacement. But a new treatment option is showing great promise and offering much-needed relief to some sufferers.

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP for short, has been found effective for reducing pain and increasing function in joints affected by osteoarthritis. Best of all, it uses your body's own resources and healing powers to create change.

In short, PRP therapy involves taking some of a patient's blood and running it through a high-tech centrifuge to extract platelets and plasma. The resulting mixture

Invest in Your Family and Community
11:16AM / Tuesday, December 03, 2019

Why do you invest? For many people, here's the answer: "I invest because I want to enjoy a comfortable retirement." And that's certainly a great reason, because all of us should regularly put money away for when we're retired. But you can also benefit by investing in your family and your community.

Let's start with your family members, particularly the younger ones. How can you invest in their future? One of the best ways is to help send them to college. A college degree is still a pretty good investment: The average lifetime earnings of a college graduate are nearly $1 million higher than those of someone with a high school degree, according to a study by the

Village Closet Close to Finding New Home for Children's Clothing and Gear
11:11AM / Tuesday, December 03, 2019

CUMMINGTON, Mass. — When the Village Closet, a Cummington-based donation center for infant and children's clothing and gear, lost its space in September, hundreds of families in western Massachusetts were left without access to free kids clothing and diapers that were desperately needed.

"Many families have come to rely on the Village Closet as a way to make ends meet," said Lisa Goding, program director at It Take a Village, the nonprofit organization which manages the Village Closet. In 2019 alone, the Village Closet distributed more than $130,000 worth of free baby clothing, diapers and gear to 1,500 families from 84 different towns throughout western

Letter: Will the Bell of Liberty Still Ring?
Letter to the Editor,
02:00PM / Monday, December 02, 2019

To the Editor:

In recent times we have seen an all out effort to diminish freedom in America. We have seen the democratic process erode into a dictatorial presidency in which honor, humanity and dignity are forgotten words.

America is under attack abroad and at home. We have a president, Senate president and United States attorney general, along with others, that have and will continue to erode the safety and well being of this nation and planet.

Unfortunately, there is a United States Senate comprised mostly of Republican lambs whose primary goal is to get re-elected at all cost, and have essentially turned their cowardly backs away from their sworn pledge to represent all the people of

05:38AM / Monday, December 02, 2019
Winter has -- prematurely -- arrived back home in the Berkshires, but for at least two county alumni, their fall seasons are continuing.   Wake Forest senior Jake Benzinger of Williamstown and Central Florida junior Jake Hescock of Pittsfield each has helped his college football team qualify for a bowl game.   Hescock, a former Taconic High student-athlete who finished his secondary education at Connecticut's Salisbury School, is a junior at UCF.   This fall, the tight end has nine catches for 87 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The UCF Knights are 9-3 and carry a two-game winning streak into the post-season.   Benzinger and the Demon Deacons dropped a heartbreaker in

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:05AM / Monday, December 02, 2019

Evan McAllister welds a seam on one of the carts at McCann.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — BFAIR's bottle redemption center now has new, safer and more ergonomic collection carts thanks to the efforts of the students in McCann Technical School's metal fabrication department.    A further motivation for two of the students was that the project was requested by their mothers — both of whom work for BFAIR.     "It's just kind of like a neat collaboration that we're starting. We've worked with them before on different things, but this is the first real project we've done. So it's just kind of neat," said Becky

'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood': What This World Needs Now
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:03PM / Friday, November 29, 2019
Can you say inspirational?   I can't remember the last time I left the movie theater thinking that what I had just seen was inspirational. Crazy? Yes. Funny? Yes. Sad and foreboding? Yes, quite often. But inspirational, in this cynical environment, with the Philistines at the gate? Nah, couldn't be. Who'd buy it?   But true enough, relying on the wonderfully positive legacy Fred Rogers bequeathed us, that's the overriding motif of director Marielle Heller's splendidly etched "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood."   You see, borrowing from Mr. Rogers' overwhelmingly positive spiel, I believe even the most disingenuous supporters of the evil
