CHP enrollment specialists can assist income-eligible residents who are renewing

Volunteers have been identifying and recording the graves of veterans for Wreaths Across America. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The organizers of the local Wreaths Across America effort knew they'd taken on a big challenge with their goal to place a wreath on the gravestone of every city veteran.   But they didn't know just how big a challenge it would be.    Donna Engels and Donna Whitcomb were planning to raise $25,000 to put wreaths of remembrance on the graves of about 2,500 veterans. But when all the research and plotting was done, the full picture of the city's commitment to national service was revealed.    The full number of graves:

@theMarket: Markets Need to Hold Here
By Bill Schmick,
01:24PM / Saturday, November 17, 2018
This week saw a re-test of the October lows. That is to be expected in most stock market corrections. What is important to the future well-being of equities globally is that the averages do not decline much further from here.   That does not mean that if the S&P 500 Index, for example, falls by another percent or so the ball game is over. Remember, folks, calling the levels of the stock market is an art, not a science. Sure, we could overshoot (most times we do), thrash around a bit more, and then recover. What I don't want to see is a solid and definitive drop lower over a week or more.   On the S&P 500, if we were to break 2,685, the next level of technical support

Letter: Thanks Someone For Quitting Smoking This Thanksgiving
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Friday, November 16, 2018

To the Editor:

This Thanksgiving season, I'd like to remind readers to thank a co-worker, friend or family member who has quit smoking, vaping, or using other nicotine delivery products. Many users say quitting is the hardest thing they have ever done and any amount of recognition can help someone stay quit.

Tobacco is the number one cause of preventable death and disease in Massachusetts. Nicotine is the very addictive substance in tobacco products as well as in e-cigarettes and vapes. As a result, repeated tobacco and nicotine use is not a habit, it's an addiction that should be treated as a chronic relapsing condition. It takes most people with a nicotine addiction several

The Independent Investor: The Apple of Our Eyes
By Bill Schmick,
12:44PM / Friday, November 16, 2018
Go into just about any supermarket right now and what do you see? Bins and bins of gorgeous red, green, and golden apples. The harvest is overwhelming, but some apples are worth more than others.   If you are like me, an average consumer, it takes about 23 minutes to do my grocery shopping, according to Proctor and Gamble. During that spate of time, I buy an average of 18 items out of maybe 30,000 to 40,000 choices. I have little time to browse and, most of the time, I don't even check the prices, which brings me back to the apple cart.   You see, I value my fruits and vegetables. The more local, the better, because to me, the taste is everything. Until recently, I was partial

Long-Closed Gas Station to Reopen in North Adams' West End
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:33PM / Thursday, November 15, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The West End should soon have a gas station and convenience store soon after several years without.    The former Getty station at 330 State Road is being reopened as a Valero station and its convenience store will have some upgrades.    The station was closed in 2015 in preparation of demolition and reconfiguring the lot for a 4,000 square foot convenience store. But that never happened and the special permit lapsed last year.    The Planning Board and inspection services had reached out numerous times over the past couple years to find out what the plans were for that station and another at Eagle and Canal owned by the same company.
