Pittsfield Crafting Guidelines For Using CPA Funds
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:30AM / Tuesday, September 26, 2017

The first public outreach session was held Monday night. Soon a survey will be released asking for residents to weigh in on how the money should be used. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city hopes to accept applications for projects through the Community Preservation Act in early 2018.   Voters adopted the act last November, which places a 1 percent surcharge on tax bills, with the first $100,000 of value being exempted. That money is set aside and matched partly by the state.   A Community Preservation Committee makes recommendations on how to spend that money but it is restricted to projects in just four categories: historic preservation, open space conservation, affordable

Park Square was lined with people opposing the new federal health care proposal. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Republicans are attempting to once again repeal and replace the ACA with a new health care program.    The so-called Graham-Cassidy bill, sponsored by Republicans Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham, is the latest attempt at a new federal health care program.   Republicans spent much of the weekend attempting to round up the votes needed to pass, but the bill is looking to fall short -- with three Republicans already indicating they will leave the bill short on votes.   But that didn't stop a few dozen local Democrats from taking to Park Square in protest

Registered Nurses Notify BMC of One-Day Strike
Staff Reports,
01:54PM / Friday, September 22, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Massachusetts Nurses Association delivered a 10-day notice to hospital management on Friday notifying it of the local bargaining unit's intent to hold a one-day unfair labor practice strike beginning at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 3, and running until 7 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 4.   Berkshire Medical Center, however, is characterizing this as a five-day work stoppage because any substitute nurses brought in are contracted for that period of time and will fill the shifts normally worked by union members.   The nurses' union and Berkshire Health Systems have been at an impasse in contract negotiations after nearly a year of talks, with the major

The Independent Investor: Time to Check Your Insurance Policies
By Bill Schmick,
03:35PM / Thursday, September 21, 2017
With hurricanes to the left and right of us, maybe a review of your home owner's insurance policy makes sense. You may find out that at today's real estate values, you are underinsured.   If you are like me, the last time you visited the insurance subject was during the Katrina/Sandy hurricanes. Since then, houses in some areas have appreciated by more than 30 percent. If so, a devastating event such as the widespread destruction recently caused by Harvey in Texas and Irma in Florida could really decimate what is probably your most valuable asset.   Given the fact that hurricanes seem to be sprouting up all over the place, if you have been spared thus far doesn't mean

Getting Your Snow Thrower Ready For Winter
Sponsored Content,
02:11PM / Thursday, September 21, 2017

HD Reynolds in Cheshire carries a full line ot Ariens snowblowers.

If you're like most of us, you probably used your snow thrower a lot last winter. But then, winter finally came to an end, and you could put your snow thrower away.

If you had fuel in the gas tank at that time and haven't thought about it since, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you want to use it again.

Unless you used a fuel stabilizer that is specifically formulated to deal with the ethanol in today's gasoline, or drained the fuel tank and carburetor completely, your snow thrower may not start when you need it this winter. Today's gasoline tends to go stale fairly quickly.

Health Alliance Offering Flu Vaccinations
03:37PM / Wednesday, September 20, 2017

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Public Health Alliance will offer flu vaccination clinics with no out-of-pocket charges around the county over the next month.

People should bring their insurance card(s) with them and wear short sleeves, or a shirt that has easily rolled-up sleeves.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends getting an annual flu vaccine as the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors' visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.
