By Jeff Snoonian, iBerkshires Correspondent
04:02AM / Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Project manager Jake Eberwein, center, presents his management plan to the task force. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire County Education Task Force is trying to anticipate potential problems on the pathway to a unified county school district.    The task force meeting at Berkshire Regional Planning's office Saturday morning certainly didn't solve any problems but did try to outline where those challenges may arise.    As with all other education initiatives the first hurdle they have is money. More specifically the lack of it.   "The full proposal we pitched (to the state Department of Education) was $420,000 for each of the first three

See more photos of Monday's pinning ceremony here.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Billie Allard opened her arms wide on Monday to welcome the newest cadre into the nursing profession.    Calling on other nurses in the gym at McCann Technical School to stand and be noted, the keynote speaker at Monday night's pinning ceremony told the 20 licensed practical nursing graduates that she had no idea what her life would become after her own pinning ceremony years ago.    "I have never regretted for one moment the decision I made nurses has nursing has helped me develop a deep and abiding love and appreciation for every person each day and each moment as

Messy Mix of Ice, Rain, Snow Expected Monday Night
Staff Reports, iBerkshires Staff
02:50PM / Monday, November 18, 2019

A chilly rain for most of the Northeast Coast but more of a wintry mix with some ice (BOOOOO!) for parts of the interior Northeast. @LianaBrackett and I will time out the worst of the weather. 9am-1pm ET on the @weatherchannel. pic.twitter.com/rZSpzfG19q

The Berkshires missed any messy commute on Monday but that doesn't mean we're out of the woods. More sleet and freezing are on the way.

Forecasters over the weekend had warned of possible icy conditions on Monday morning that slipped on by us. However, there's a winter weather advisory in effect for Monday into Tuesday at 10 a.m. for freezing drizzle that could start by

Christina Maxwell of the Food Bank of Western Mass talks about food security. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Poverty was the topic of conversation on Friday to help the Berkshire Community Action Council gauge the needs in the community.   Community leaders and experts led a panel Friday morning at the Berkshire Athenaeum to help spark a conversation among participants focused on poverty and its different catalysts.      "We are all interested in working on the destabilizing effects poverty is having on our community and so we hope that we will get some good information here," BCAC Executive Director Deborah Leonczyk said.

North Adams Historical Society Waiting on Library Room Renovation
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
02:41AM / Monday, November 18, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The library trustees will reach out to the city about the delayed renovation of the Historical Society's archive rooms.   Trustee Ely Janis asked Chairwoman Robin Martin last week if there had been any progress on the third-floor archival room and Martin said both the mayor and the Building Department have been silent.   "I have gotten no response," Martin said.    The Historical Society recently moved its museum from Western Gateway Heritage State Park to the first-floor of the Holiday Inn. Because this space is smaller, the entire collection could not be moved.   The plan was to place these archives on the third floor of

@theMarket: Record Highs Again & Again
By Bill Schmick,
04:41PM / Friday, November 15, 2019
It has been one of those weeks where just about every day the stock market opened lower. But by the end of the day, one or more of the three main averages would rebound and close higher, usually close to, or at a minor new high. I expect it should continue.   And as stocks grind higher, more and more equity players are calling for a minor 2-3 percent pullback. Is that something that we should even care about? My answer would be no.    We are in a news-driven market. Most investors only seem to care about the latest news on a China trade deal; that said, being out of the market appears to be riskier than being in it.   Many believe we are only one tweet away from a 5

Clarksburg Property Owners Will Feel Impact of Debt Exclusion
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:55AM / Friday, November 15, 2019
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Homeowners will see their property tax rise an average of $350 in fiscal 2020.   The Select Board on Wednesday approved a single tax rate of $17.89 per $1,000 valuation, up nearly $2 over last year's rate of $15.99.   The 11 percent jump in the tax rate is largely because of the $1 million borrowing approved at town meeting in May. The borrowing to address a number of capital projects is excluded from Proposition 2 1/2 but the tax impact will only last five years.   Assessor Ross Vivori has calculated that the average tax bill will rise $354.53 based on a comparison of last year's and this year's tax rate and house values. The value of

The Independent Investor: Attention Retirees!
By Bill Schmick,
05:10PM / Thursday, November 14, 2019
It has been more than a year since President Trump admonished the government to strengthen retirement security in America. This week, in response, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released a proposal to comply with that executive order. Its suggestions were decidedly underwhelming.   Truth be told, financial planners and tax accountants have been speculating for years that, at some point, the IRS was going to have to recognize certain facts of life concerning retirement. One of which is that Americans are living longer. Why should that matter so much to you, the retiree?   Because everyone that has a tax-deferred savings account like an IRA, 401(k), 403(b), etc., is required

Letter: Problematic Proposed Lenox Short-Term Rental Bylaw
Letter to the Editor,
05:00PM / Thursday, November 14, 2019

To the Editor:

Under the proposed short-term rental Lenox bylaw, "up to two bedrooms in a dwelling unit may be rented year-round by right provided that the owner or tenant is occupying the dwelling unit at the time of the rental."

Presumably, bedrooms may not be rented at all if the owner or tenant is not occupying the dwelling unit.

In other words, literally, the very same use is allowed by one type of owner (an owner occupying the dwelling unit), but not another type of owner (one who does not occupy the dwelling unit where bedrooms are being rented). Because there is identical use and intensity and the only thing that differs is the type of owner or renter; it is hard to view
