By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:53AM / Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The town hired two and, for a while, it was working out well.   But, one of those — Nico Amuso — just took a job elsewhere and left the town's employment. There need to be two EMTs per call, so the one on staff hasn't been able to take any calls. The squad also lost another volunteer in recent months.   The Board of Selectmen have

07:18AM / Saturday, September 22, 2018

Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Jay Ash was the keynote speaker. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Housing on upper floors of downtown buildings was forbidden for years.   Even if a developer wanted to build apartments or condominiums, it couldn't. But the city changed that a handful of years ago when it created a zoning overlay district to broaden the scope of what could be developed.    And soon the investment followed. The Howard Block and the Onota Building have been converted to market-rate housing. The former Notre Dame School and the numerous other smaller buildings on North Street were also turned into market-rate housing.   Soon the Wright

@theMarket: Record Highs and More to Come?
By Bill Schmick,
04:03PM / Friday, September 21, 2018
The Dow and the S&P 500 Indexes made record highs this week. That's right, we broke the levels of January and we closed out the week holding these new higher levels. So much for the bear's prediction of a 5-7 percent pullback.   Over two weeks ago, when I published my last column, I wrote that most of the Wall Street community was expecting a pullback. I warned readers "that when the pack is leaning one way, you should be looking the other way. I say stay invested, look beyond a month or two, and prosper by the end of the year."   OK, in hindsight, that was sage advice, but now what? You aren't paying me the big bucks to tell you about the past. Do we
