By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:43AM / Wednesday, October 02, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams Public Schools have scored well in the latest state standardized tests.    But school officials are a little worried on how to translate the charts, graphs and scores into something that makes sense for the average parent.     How will they answer, "what's going on in our schools? Is it good news?" said Mayor Thomas Bernard at Tuesday's School Committee meeting.   Superintendent Barbara Malkas acknowledged that the information was somewhat daunting and that even those immersed in it have had training to understand the results.     "The idea is that your overall classification is

Flu Shot: It's That Time Again
By Dr. Everett Lamm,
11:45AM / Tuesday, October 01, 2019

With flu season around the corner, your health care providers, employers, pharmacists and others are sounding the annual reminder: "Get your annual flu shot." We encourage this for you — and for the people around you, too. We see evidence every year of the benefits of the flu vaccine, and we also see the risks of skipping it.

The flu vaccine has dramatic impacts on public health. However, since strains of the flu may vary from year to year, the vaccine must be received annually. Although the vaccine doesn't guarantee a flu-free winter and perfect health, medical research has convincingly shown that the flu shot reduces flu severity and reduces sick visits,

How to Become a Long-term Investor
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:17AM / Tuesday, October 01, 2019

It's a fairly predictable pattern: When the stock market rises, more people invest, but after a large-scale drop, many of these same people head for the exits. But by staying out of the financial markets, and only putting their money in "safe" vehicles that offer few or no growth prospects, are they really helping themselves?

Here's the bottom line: If you're going to make progress toward your long-term goals, you have to become a long-term investor. But how?

To begin with, you need to understand that long-term investing involves accepting inevitable short-term price swings. You may not like seeing those sharp price drops, but it will help your outlook greatly if

Clarksburg Takes Over Senior Center
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Monday, September 30, 2019
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Council on Aging is expected to nominate more members on Monday morning that can ensure the board can continue.   The fate of the Senior Center has been clouded in recent months as the Council on Aging's members dwindled below the minimum number and they considered dissolving. An influx of interest delayed the center's closure as the town and volunteers sought to find a path forward.    But it's been difficult for long-term members to begin a transfer of the reins and the Select Board last week voted to take over operations of the Senior Center.   "They've done a lot for the Council on Aging, and the building and

HiLo North Adams Welcomes Comedy Night to the Region
By Rick Duteau, iBerkshires Correspondent
07:07PM / Saturday, September 28, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — We enjoyed a live comedy show in North Adams on Thursday night.   HiLo North Adams entertained a near-capacity audience on Thursday night for its inaugural Comedy Night, headlined by comedian Monroe Martin.    The venue at Canal and Union streets opened just a few weeks ago to bring a local home for live music and nightlife entertainment, and Comedy Night is another extension of that vision.   Both audiences and performers alike were unsure what to expect of one another, and yet almost immediately the atmosphere felt comfortable and exciting in a way that suggested this was anything but the first time this was happening there. The feel of the
