Organizers of the year-old Curl Berkshires says interest in the 600-year-old sport tends to peak during the Winter Olympics.

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
02:02AM / Monday, October 30, 2017

The forum at the library drew a crowd numbering close to 200 last Tuesday. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Kathleen McKinnon knows full well what heroin addiction does to families.   Those struggling with substance abuse put the high above everything else. The bills and even food fall to the wayside. The family is constantly worried.   McKinnon believes the answer for those families could be found in cannabis.   "Patients need to be able to have an option. This will allow them to start step down programs with the opioids," McKinnon said.   McKinnon is the director of operations for Canna Care Docs.

@theMarket: Markets Are Waiting for Tax Reform
By Bill Schmick,
10:48AM / Saturday, October 28, 2017
Stocks gyrated up and down this week as events in Washington competed with quarterly earnings results for investor's attention. Next week, we should find out more about both.   True to form, third-quarter earnings results have been in-line or better than expected. Over 70 percent of companies have "beat" earnings estimates, which is no surprise. Sales and earnings guidance have also been upbeat. For those unfortunate corporations who "missed" their targets on either the top or bottom line, retribution was swift and dramatic.   Some companies saw their stock price plummet 20 percent or more. And we are not just talking about penny stocks. Some mega-cap

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
06:12AM / Saturday, October 28, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The School Department is increasing the amount of space it leases on Eagle Street.   Earlier this year, the department moved its Student Resource Center out of leased space at St. Luke's Square to Eagle Street. But, after moving into the fourth floor, it realized it was too small.   "The space is smaller than what we left on Whipple Street the previous year and we have struggled with certain aspects of the set up of the space," Superintendent Jason McCandless said.   The SRC was supposed to be operating with 2,045 square feet but the number of students and the layout posed difficulties. The landlord, Scarafoni Associates, informed the

The Independent Investor: IRS Changes Tax Rules for Next Year
By Bill Schmick,
02:39PM / Friday, October 27, 2017
As politicians squabble over tax reform and cuts, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) continues to do their job. New tax provisions for 2018 are out and some of them may be of interest to you.   Right now, there are seven marginal tax rates (soon to be three or four, if tax reform happens). Each tax bracket applies to a different income range. The highest tax rate (39.6 percent) will apply to all those who make $426,700, or $480,050 (married). The lowest rate, at 10 percent, would apply to those making $9,525 as an individual and $19,050, if married. You can review the other five brackets at your leisure by going to IRS.gov.   The IRS has also increased the standard deduction to
