Business Owners: You Need Your Own Retirement Plan
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:22AM / Wednesday, August 14, 2019

As a business owner, you can't afford to ignore your competition. You can't afford to miss out on the trends affecting your industry. You can't afford to alienate customers. And here's one more item to add to the list: You can't afford not to create a retirement plan for yourself.

Of course, you might think that, one day, you will simply sell your business and live off the proceeds. But selling a business isn't always simple, and there's no guarantee you will receive enough to pay for a comfortable retirement – which is why you should strongly consider creating a retirement plan now.

01:54AM / Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Mabel Hamilton provides opening remarks about the importance of the classes. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mabel Hamilton remembers when stories of African American history weren't just passed down from family to family, but were reinforced in schools.   The city school system had offered African American studies, delving into the history and contributions of the black community as part of the American story. But a few decades ago, the school district cut the class and that history faded from the curriculum.   "Life is a cycle and if we do not know where we come from, we will not know where we are going," Hamilton said.   Hamilton was addressing a crowd at

Pittsfield's World Series Run Ends in Yet Another Nail-Biter
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
02:24PM / Tuesday, August 13, 2019
WESTFIELD, Mass. -- Say this for the Pittsfield Babe Ruth Baseball 13-year-old All-Stars: They gave fans their money’s worth at this week’s World Series.   While the other nine teams at the championship had at least one game that was a little bit lopsided in the end, here are the margins of victory in the New England champs’ five games: two runs, one run, two runs, one run, one run.   That last one-run margin of victory? It belonged to the Ohio Valley champs from Janesville, Wis., who Tuesday rallied for two runs in the top of the seventh to hand Pittsfield a 4-3 loss that ended its tournament run in the first round of bracket play.   It was a heart-stopping

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Earl Persip III knows that he doesn't have all of the answers.   And that's why he listens to others. He said 100 people in Pittsfield will have 100 different views on an issue and he feels his job as a councilor is to listen to them all and find the best solution.   "I never go into a meeting and say I am definitely voting this way. I have an idea of how I am going to vote but then I listen to some people and oh, I didn't think about that," said the at-large councilor, who is running for a second term.   It is a quality he brings to his job as director of facilities at The Mount. He'll have an idea about how things should
