Be careful when naming beneficiaries
02:40PM / Tuesday, April 16, 2024
You might not have thought much about beneficiary designations — but they can play a big role in your estate planning.   When you purchase insurance policies and open investment accounts, such as your IRA, you'll be asked to name a beneficiary, and, in some cases, more than one. This might seem easy, especially if you have a spouse and children, but if you experience a major life event, such as a divorce or a death in the family, you may need to make some changes — because beneficiary designations carry a lot of weight under the law.   In fact, these designations can supersede the instructions you may have written in your will or living trust, so everyone in your

Tips for Managing Spring Allergies
12:08AM / Tuesday, April 16, 2024
It's happening—delicate snowdrops nodding in the breeze, maple buckets being hung (and re-hung), and the first pussy willows bursting forth from their winter cocoons.   For most people, these earliest signs of spring are welcome reminders that longer, warmer days are ahead. But, for the 81 million American adults and children with seasonal allergies, those same seasonal heralds are more of a red flag than a thing of beauty.     And, thanks to the particularly mild winter experienced in New England, the season of sneezing may be upon us a bit earlier than usual.   While there is no cure for seasonal allergies, you can take steps NOW to reduce your

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:21AM / Monday, April 15, 2024

Mayor Jennifer Macksey says the requests for qualifications for the planning grant should be available this month.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Connecting the city's massive museum and its struggling downtown has been a challenge for 25 years.    A major impediment, all agree, is the decades old Central Artery project that sent a four-lane highway through the heart of the city.    Backed by a $750,000 federal grant for a planning study, North Adams and Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art are looking to undo some of that damage.   "As you know, the overpass was built in 1959 during a time when highways were being built, and it was expanded to

Holiday Hours: Patriots Day
11:00AM / Friday, April 12, 2024

Monday, April 15, is Patriots Day, a state holiday marking the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord that began the American Revolution. The day has been celebrated on the third Monday in April since 1969.

It was on the morning of April 20, 1775, that Paul Revere and other riders began the alert across and beyond Massachusetts Colony that troops were planning to advance from Boston to the towns of Lexington and Concord. They were to seize a cache of gunpowder and arms and capture revolutionaries Sam Adams and John Hancock.

(Local legend claims that Israel Bissell, later of Hinsdale, rode all the way to Philadelphia, but most historians dismiss it.)
