By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:38PM / Thursday, July 14, 2022
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council is giving boards and commissions more time to file meeting minutes.   Councilors spent some time Monday debating whether to amend an ordinance passed five years ago that required boards to provide meeting minutes within two weeks before passing it to a second reading 7-2 with Councilors Marie T.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:28AM / Wednesday, July 13, 2022
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday approved the transfer of $241,699 from the fiscal 2021 free cash account to stabilization and a half-million in transfers to close out fiscal 2022.   "We ended up in a good place, more to be reported on that as the numbers come rolling in," said Mayor Jennifer Macksey.   She expected "some decent reserves" when the fiscal 2022 free cash is certified.    The mayor said the stabilization account had $574,000 in it, bringing the total amount now to about $815,699.

Prepare Yourself for a Long Retirement
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:52AM / Tuesday, July 12, 2022

We all want to live long lives. We all expect to live long lives. But are we financially prepared for this longevity?

Before we get to the issue of preparation, let’s look at a couple of interesting findings from a 2022 survey by Age Wave and Edward Jones:

The surveyed retirees said, on average, they expect to live to 89, and they said the ideal length of retirement is 29 years. When asked if they want to live to 100, nearly 70% of the respondents said "yes." The main reason for this desire for long life? To spend more years with their family and friends.

Of course, none of us can see into the future and know how long we’ll be around. But with advances in medical

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – Alexyss Gancarz and Kylee Mazza each homered Monday to lead the Adams-Cheshire-Savoy Swat to a 23-7 win over the Greylock Thunder in the 10-and-Under Division of the Berkshire County Fastpitch Softball League.   Tenley Biros, Olivia Archambeault and Gancarz combined to strike out 14 in the five-inning win at Francis Millard Field.   Although the final score does not show it, the game started out as a back-and-forth affair.   Archambault singled in a two-run first inning for the visiting Swat.   But the Thunder struck back with two runs of their own in the bottom of the frame, taking advantage of back-to-back walks from Ava Ruiz and Braylee Todd
