Sponsored Content,
12:03PM / Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Farmers market displays are colorful and eye-catching.

Some local food enthusiasts have called September "the best food month." All of the summer's produce — tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers and sweet corn — is still available locally, and the fall vegetables, like squash and parsnips, are coming ready too.

If you are not accustomed to shopping at a farmers market, it is a great time to check it out. What you'll find there — in addition to the festival atmosphere, friendly neighbors, live music and delicious ready-made ethnic foods — are conditions that make it easier to eat healthfully.

As you enter the market you will notice the beauty

Here's Your Retirement Countdown
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:51AM / Wednesday, September 27, 2017

If you want to enjoy a comfortable retirement lifestyle, you don't need to have been born rich or even to have earned scads of money during your working years. But you do need to make the right moves at the right time – which means you might want to start a "retirement countdown" well before you draw your final paycheck.

What might such a countdown look like? Here are a few ideas:

Ten years before retirement: At this stage of your career, you might be at, or at least near, your peak earning capacity. At the same time, your kids may have grown and left the home, and you might even have paid off your mortgage. All these factors, taken together, may mean that you can

Ciccolo Case Delayed Another Two Months
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:18PM / Tuesday, September 26, 2017
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — A technical glitch and a technical legal question are the latest causes of delay in the case against an Adams man accused of plotting terrorist attacks.   The lawyers in the case of the United States vs Alexander Ciccolo were back in Judge Mark G. Mastroianni's court on Tuesday morning.   The attorneys have spent months hashing out the issues of discovery, i.e., what information the government is required to give the defense prior to trial in light of the fact that much of that evidence is covered by the Classified Information Procedures Act.   It was apparent at the start of the 15-minute hearing that even the internal workings of the federal

Local Democrats Rally Against Latest Federal Health Care Bill
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
09:30PM / Monday, September 25, 2017

Park Square was lined with people opposing the new federal health care proposal. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Republicans are attempting to once again repeal and replace the ACA with a new health care program.    The so-called Graham-Cassidy bill, sponsored by Republicans Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham, is the latest attempt at a new federal health care program.   Republicans spent much of the weekend attempting to round up the votes needed to pass, but the bill is looking to fall short -- with three Republicans already indicating they will leave the bill short on votes.   But that didn't stop a few dozen local Democrats from taking to Park Square in protest

Letter: Bullett Endorses Blackmer for State Representative
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, September 25, 2017

To the Editor:

I served with Lisa Blackmer for almost six years on the North Adams City Council. In that capacity I had the opportunity to witness first hand her commitment to municipal government and the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make government work.

She was an active member of the Finance Committee, the Community Development Committee, and others. She currently she serves as a board member of the Massachusetts Municipal Association. Lisa always showed up for community events and fundraisers, and she was a good colleague.
 
I believe Lisa will be a zealous advocate for the needs of the communities that comprise the 1st Berkshire District. She will be able to work

Letter: Stephanie Bosley Will Provide Fresh Ideas in Boston
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, September 25, 2017

To the Editor:

I am writing to voice my support for Stephanie Bosley in the race for state representative from the 1 st Berkshire District.

Stephanie recently spent an hour with me discussing her impressive educational background and experience, as well as her reasons for running for this position. I believe she will be a tremendous advocate for our region, particularly on environmental and agricultural issues. She understands keenly the need to balance economic development with environmental protection and supports further expansion of renewable energy.

Stephanie also understands that the farm sector is important to the local economy and supports increasing tax credits and other

Letter: Stephanie Bosley Best Person for Representative
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, September 25, 2017

To the Editor:

The election for state representative for the 1st Berkshire District hasn't received much press, but it is an important election to replace Gail Cariddi. The Berkshires have many needs and we need someone who will go to Boston and work with the other members to make sure we get our fair share. I think the best person for this job is Stephanie Bosley. She has been talking about her political and work experience and how that has shaped her ideas as well as her commitment to this area in a way that is refreshing and different.

At one of the forums that the candidates have attended, I heard a couple of supporters of another candidate talk about Stephanie's age and lack
