By MassWildlife,
04:28PM / Thursday, July 01, 2021

It's summertime in Massachusetts, which means more people will be spending time outdoors. With the increasing number of black bears found in many areas of Massachusetts, it is important for all residents to know how to prevent problems.

While people living in Western Massachusetts have been coexisting with bears for years, others in the eastern part of the state may be surprised to learn that black bears likely live nearby as well. This summer, a young bear made headlines as it traveled throughout southeastern Mass, and over the last few years, MassWildlife has also confirmed reports of bears in Newton, Chelmsford, North Andover, Amesbury, and even Provincetown!

The Retired Investor: Will SALT Be Repealed?
By Bill Schmick,
04:03PM / Thursday, July 01, 2021
The state and local tax cap, called SALT, has been the bane of many high-tax states since its passage as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It created an effective tax hike for many high earners in high tax states, as well as many middle-class workers.

Bernie Sanders, presented a draft outline of a $6 trillion budget resolution. It included $120 billion for SALT relief over five years. Readers may recall that the controversial tax placed a $10,000 cap on the amount taxpayers could deduct from their federal income tax in state and local taxes. One of many
