Pittsfield Health Board Considers Fine-Tuning Tobacco Rules
By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
05:10AM / Monday, June 13, 2022

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Board of Health is looking into fine-tuning the city's tobacco product regulations.

Tri-Town Health Department Director James Wilusz recommended various amendments to the city's tobacco ordinance at the board's June meeting. The two main suggestions address products that slip through the state's bans and "smoking bars."

The department has been administering a tobacco awareness program since 1994.

"Pittsfield is still very high in smoking prevalence and smoking during pregnancy, it came down a little bit pre-pandemic, I think because of the local policy efforts, but I think coming out of the pandemic, we expect it to go

@theMarket: Inflation Shock Pummels Markets
By Bill Schmick,
04:08PM / Friday, June 10, 2022
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) surged in May 2022 as gas prices continued to run higher. These results came as a downside surprise to a stock market that has been falling most of the week.   Friday's CPI number for May 2022 reflected an increase of 1 percent, compared to "hot" estimates of 0.3 percent in April 2022. On a year-over-year basis, the gain was 8.6 percent, which is a 40-year high in the CPI. Gasoline prices were a key driver of inflation last month, although Owners' Equivalent Rent (OER), which accounts for about a third of the CPI, also gained.
