The Independent Investor: The Student Loan Crisis
By Bill Schmick,
04:14PM / Thursday, October 18, 2018
  Student loans have now become the second-largest pile of consumer borrowing, after home mortgages. What's worse, it is the fastest growing slice of American household debt and shows no sign of slowing down.   Young Americans are going to college in droves. At the same time, the costs of higher education are at historical highs. That combination has become a lethal cocktail that could hamstring young workers over their entire life and along the way damage the overall economy.   Since the financial crisis and Great Recession over a decade ago, student loans have grown by almost 157 percent. Compare that to auto loans, which have risen 52 percent. In the case of mortgage

Williamstown Officials Confront Issues Related to Off-Campus Parties
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:55AM / Thursday, October 18, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Two members of the Select Board fired a "shot across the bow" Monday at a nonprofit that hosts an annual fund-raiser tied to a block party on Hoxsey Street.   Jesse Facey, a leader of Williams College's chapter of San Francisco-based organization Reclaim Childhood, was before the board to request a street closure for an Oct. 27 party.   In response to reports by a local resident about past issues related to the event, board members Jane Patton and Andrew Hogeland voted against authorizing the closure.   "The message needs to be that it was barely approved and if it doesn't work out, it's the last time," Hogeland

Letter: Question 1 Will Hurt Small Hospitals
Letter to the Editor,
03:00PM / Wednesday, October 17, 2018

To the Editor:

I work at Fairview Hospital as a critical care nurse. I have been with Berkshire Health Systems for 22 years and a registered nurse for 13 of those. I oppose Question 1.

In a small community hospital, we have the ability to utilize on another to accommodate our patients' needs. For example, The CCU may have three patients with low acuity but the emergency room (ER) is busy with patients, or possibly short a nurse. The three patients in CCU could be cared for by the second nurse so another nurse could be sent to the ER to help. Also in CCU we often see patients who need end-of-life care. In such times, a colleague takes over my other patients to allow me to spend

Letter: Moran Right for Register of Deeds
02:30PM / Wednesday, October 17, 2018

To the Editor:

I am writing to voice my opinion and support for Debbie Moran as register of deeds in Adams.

I worked with Debbie many years ago at Taconic Title Services, formerly located in North Adams. I was so nervous and completely inexperienced in that line of work. Debbie took me under her wing with patience, persistence, kindness and humor, to teach me what I needed to do in order to be successful in my position. Believe me, the character traits of patience and humor were key in trying to teach me how to do closing documents for a real estate transaction! It was a lot! We became friends then, and are still friends to this day.


I also read where Debbie is registered as an

Letter: Experience Matters in District Attorney
Letter to the Editor,
02:00PM / Wednesday, October 17, 2018

To the Editor:

Few are those who come to public service with selfless motivation. These are the rare breed for whom the power that comes with responsibility is not intoxicating, but sobering. Career public servants put the community's well-being before their personal ambitions and spend their time protecting others; they become experts in their field, tireless in commitment and devoted for decades.

Andrea Harrington has no experience as a prosecutor and only a few years as a part-time public defender who tried her first case as a lawyer in 2011. The Democratic nominee for district attorney is the least qualified person to ever run, yet she is the beneficiary of help and support from

Knight Backs Caccaviello in District Attorney's Race
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
06:16PM / Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Despite Knight and Harrington both being considered the more progressive candidates in the field, Knight is opting to support Caccaviello instead of Harrington. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Judith Knight isn't going to be the next district attorney. But she hopes Paul Caccaviello will be.   Knight, who finished third in the Democratic primary in September, is putting her support behind Caccaviello's write-in campaign.   Knight made the announcement on steps of the Berkshire Superior Court on Tuesday.   "This is probably not the best political thing for me to do. I know I will be criticized ... but this is the right thing to do," Knight

02:47AM / Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Mark Rondeau holds up the new sign for the Friendship Center on Eagle Street, now named after one of its founders, the late Al Nelson. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It was nearly a decade ago that Al Nelson, Mark Rondeau and Steve Green huddled in a corner after a Northern Berkshire Community Coalition forum on hunger.    Mayor Thomas Bernard said he had a clear memory of that conversation and a feeling in the room at First Baptist Church that something should be done. And on a cold snowy day in 2011, the Friendship Center Food Pantry opened in 800 square feet on Eagle Street.     "We know it thrived because of that hard work," he said. "Because Al
