Short-term investments offer liquidity and more
Submitted by Edward Jones,
09:14AM / Tuesday, October 19, 2021
Generally speaking, investing is a long-term process. You invest in your IRA and 401(k) to reach a long-term goal – retirement. You may invest in a 529 education savings plan for many years to reach another long-term goal – college for your children. But is there also a place in your portfolio for shorter-term investments?   In a word, yes. You have three good reasons for owning short-term investments: liquidity, diversification and protection of longer-term investments. Let's look at all three:   Liquidity – For many people, the COVID-19 pandemic brought home the need to have ready access to cash, and short-term investment vehicles are typically liquid.

Hawlemont Seeks to Join Northern Berkshire School Union
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:38AM / Tuesday, October 19, 2021
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire School Union is looking for a lot more information before it makes a decision on accepting the Hawlemont Regional School as a member.   The regional school serves the elementary needs of Charlemont and Hawley and recently contacted NBSU about joining the union.    NBSU is five independent town school districts that share administrative services between Clarksburg, Florida, Monroe, Rowe and Savoy.    Monday's meeting of the School Union Committee was to hear a presentation of the proposal but the lack of a quorum because of missing Monroe members prevented more than a brief general discussion and a recommendation

By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
05:14PM / Monday, October 18, 2021

Letter: Support Bond for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
03:45PM / Monday, October 18, 2021

To the Editor:

I have struggled with whether or not to write this letter, and as I write it, am still struggling with the right way to say what I want to say. I am not a political person, and hope that I don't get the backlash that some do for putting their opinion forward. I was born and raised here in North Adams and John Barrett III was my teacher in fourth grade when he was elected, so I have experienced many elections, some more tumultuous than others.

This mayoral election has been a bit stressful for me since I know both candidates and many of their supporters, on both sides. I worked for Jennifer Macksey and I work closely with Lynette Bond currently. I have felt a bit of

Letter: Bond Has Knowledge, Experience for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
03:30PM / Monday, October 18, 2021

To the Editor:

I write this letter asking residents of North Adams to join me in electing Lynette Bond for mayor on Nov. 2.

Believe me when I say that this was a tough decision, as I know both candidates, both with different but relevant backgrounds. For me, though, I find Lynette Bond to be the superior choice.

Lynette has experience in large municipal projects, such as the work she did in Adams securing and managing grant-funded projects that reshaped their downtown. She is director of grants and research at MCLA, where she has developed critical skills in grant writing and management which she will bring to the role of mayor. And during her eight years as a member of the North Adams

Letter: Jennifer Macksey For Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
03:05PM / Monday, October 18, 2021

To the Editor:

In the nearly 40 years I've lived in North Adams — first as a student at North Adams State College and then making my home here with my wife — I've found mayoral politics to be divisive and full of mudslinging. I was always left to decide between the lesser of two evils. Or, the lesser of who cares.

When Mayor Bernard announced he would not be seeking re-election various people with little-to-no experience took out nomination papers to replace him. It was discouraging to see the quality of candidate it appeared we could be looking at as the city's next chief executive.

Things improved when Jennifer Macksey entered the race. She is someone with the

Letter: Lynette Bond for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
03:00PM / Monday, October 18, 2021

To the Editor:

When I look at any election, I try to see it through a business lens. Cities and towns are essentially businesses, with budgets, customers, needs, wants, and challenges. As a voter, you are deciding who the city hires to be the next mayor. Similarly in business, you also look at resumes and look for patterns with your candidates.

Recently, a letter was published claiming that the insurance trust underfunding that occurred during John Barrett III's administration, and under the control and compliance responsibility of Jennifer Macksey as city treasurer, was not her fault. I would beg to differ — it is absolutely the responsibility of the treasurer to catch

12:07PM / Monday, October 18, 2021
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — The Farm Bureau Federation named Thomas Farm & Dairy's Sophie-Jane as Barn Cat of the year.   “Sophie-Jane exhibited the qualities of an excellent barn cat," said MFBF Promotion and Education Chair Meg Gennings. “Not only does she keep rodents and birds out of the barn at Thomas Farm and Dairy but she also is extremely affectionate and an excellent napper. Those qualities are what make barn cats popular."    Sophie-Jane was adopted through Dakin Humane Society's barn cat program, which pairs cats who are either too feisty or too shy to live in traditional homes with working barns. These cats are spayed or neutered,
