Share Your Bounty with Family
10:59AM / Tuesday, November 19, 2019

As Thanksgiving approaches, it's meaningful to reflect on the origin of the holiday –Native Americans and pilgrims sharing their bounty of food with each other. As you gather with your loved ones this year, perhaps you can think of ways to share not only your dinner, but also your financial bounty.

In terms of bounty-sharing, here are some suggestions you may find helpful, no matter your age or that of your children:

* Make appropriate gifts. If you have young children, you may want to get them started with a savings account to help them develop positive financial habits. You could even make it a Thanksgiving tradition to measure how their accounts have grown from year to year.

Project manager Jake Eberwein, center, presents his management plan to the task force. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire County Education Task Force is trying to anticipate potential problems on the pathway to a unified county school district.    The task force meeting at Berkshire Regional Planning's office Saturday morning certainly didn't solve any problems but did try to outline where those challenges may arise.    As with all other education initiatives the first hurdle they have is money. More specifically the lack of it.   "The full proposal we pitched (to the state Department of Education) was $420,000 for each of the first three

@theMarket: Record Highs Again & Again
By Bill Schmick,
04:41PM / Friday, November 15, 2019
It has been one of those weeks where just about every day the stock market opened lower.
