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. In 2017, a study in Pediatrics was the first of its kind to show that flu vaccination also significantly

New Strength And Conditioning Gym Opens on Elm Street
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
02:15PM / Wednesday, September 20, 2017

The gym opened earlier this year and now Jennings is looking to expand its reach and add more training options. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Joseph Jennings used to push himself in the weight room and with his fitness training. And he kept getting injured.   "I was training so much that I found myself getting injured, getting sick, I was unable to recover. A few years ago, I dislocated my shoulder and broke my leg in the same year. A big part of my rehab was training with the kettlebells to regain my strength," Jennings said.    Kettlebells became a new obsession for him. He realized that building dense strength and strong muscle movement was the base for any
