By MassWildlife,
04:28PM / Thursday, July 01, 2021

It's summertime in Massachusetts, which means more people will be spending time outdoors. With the increasing number of black bears found in many areas of Massachusetts, it is important for all residents to know how to prevent problems.

While people living in Western Massachusetts have been coexisting with bears for years, others in the eastern part of the state may be surprised to learn that black bears likely live nearby as well. This summer, a young bear made headlines as it traveled throughout southeastern Mass, and over the last few years, MassWildlife has also confirmed reports of bears in Newton, Chelmsford, North Andover, Amesbury, and even Provincetown!

By Bill Schmick,
04:03PM / Thursday, July 01, 2021
The state and local tax cap, called SALT, has been the bane of many high-tax states since its passage as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It created an effective tax hike for many high earners in high tax states, as well as many middle-class workers. That may be about to change, at least for some income earners.   Last week, the Senate Budget Committee, chaired by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, presented a draft outline of a $6 trillion budget resolution. It included $120 billion for SALT relief over five years. Readers may recall that the controversial tax placed a $10,000 cap on the amount taxpayers could deduct from their federal income tax in state and local taxes. One of many

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
12:34AM / Wednesday, June 30, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board on Monday held what might be its last virtual meeting, but some residents are urging the panel to hold off on having in-person only meetings just yet.   Chair Andrew Hogeland said it is his intention to hold the board's July 12 meeting at Town Hall, the first time the body will have used the Selectmen's Meeting Room since March 2020.   The tradeoff is that the town does not yet have the capability to hold "hybrid" meetings, during which members of the public can participate via video conference during an in-person meeting.   "We expect within a couple of months we'll solve the hybrid technology,"
