Thomas Scanlon of Scanlon & Associates explains a point of the management letter for fiscal 2014.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city's consulting auditor is continuing to express concern over its lack of reserves but found few other issues in its review of the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2014.

The management letter can be read here.

Free cash should generally be about 3 to 5

Lt. Col. Fran Bourdon, the main speaker at Adams' Memorial Day ceremony, gives a nod to 91-year-old Clement St. Hilaire of American Legion Post 160. Towns around the county marked the day by remembering sacrifices made by the nation's military men and women. See more photos  here.

ADAMS, Mass. — The first time Fran Bourdon spoke at a Memorial Day observance it was to remind participants of the sacrifices made in a long past war.

Fifty-five years ago to the day, the young Eagle Scout with Troop 38 had read the Gettysburg Address at the annual ceremony in Adams.

On Monday, the now retired National Guard colonel, "completing a life cycle,"

NoCo Pastaria is a new Italian restaurant located next to the Stop & Shop on State Road in North Adams.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It's the size of a small suitcase, and it's tucked away in a basement.

But that doesn't mean the $8,000 imported Italian pasta machine is anything less than critical to the newest restaurant to hit the North Adams dining scene.

"It's the heart and soul of NoCo," said Robert Beuth, who along with Jane Patton has opened NoCo Pastaria (think "pizzeria," only "pastaria") at 896 State Road. The restaurant, located next to the Stop & Shop plaza, housed the La Veranda restaurant for many years then Isabella's

The notes of the Fed's April policy meeting, released this week, may have confused more people than not. The central bank committee revealed that they were unlikely to raise short-term interest rates in June. That statement could be taken as both a positive and a negative, depending on your investment position.

The official notice of a delayed rate hike was greeted with relief by some, although the markets had largely baked in that outcome. Many Fed Heads contend that a rate hike in September is still only a 50/50 proposition, while others argue any increase in rates won't happen until sometime next year.
