Fundamentals for Safe Ice Fishing
08:07AM / Wednesday, January 04, 2023
MONTPELIER, Vt. — With the start of the new year, many Vermonters are preparing for ice fishing.    "If you're looking for a fun, easy way to get outdoors with friends and family this winter, ice fishing is hard to top," said Fisheries Biologist Shawn Good.  "It's quick to learn, affordable and generally more accessible and social than open water fishing."   In light of Vermont's recent warm weather, the department stresses that anglers take ice safety seriously and recommends a few basic tips and precautions.   "A minimum of three to four inches of clear black ice is safe to walk on," advised Good.  "If

2022: North Adams Year in Review
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
12:30PM / Tuesday, January 03, 2023
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city ended 2022 with a partial solution to its problematic public safety building, the feds taking interest in the flood chutes, new faces at City Hall and the opening of a $20 million cannabis cultivation facility.   Temescal Wellness cut the ribbon in September on a 72,000-square-foot, more than $20 million state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facility. The plant in the Hardman Industrial Park had been the home of Crane & Co. until it closed the year before. The new facility is expected to add 80 jobs to the city's economy.    Another cannabis venture went nowhere when the mayor filed a suit against the Planning Board and the
