Take Greater Control of Your 401(k)
04:26PM / Tuesday, November 05, 2019

If your employer offers a 401(k) or similar plan, you’ve got a powerful retirement-savings tool at your disposal. And yet, how well you do with your 401(k) depends greatly on your choices and actions. What steps can you take to maximize the benefits of your plan?

For starters, be aware that your 401(k) may come with what might be called "standard" features, which you should review to determine their applicability to your situation. These features include the following:

* Default deferral rate: When you take a job, your employer may automatically enroll you in the company's 401(k) plan and assign a "default" contribution rate – the percentage of your

North Adams to Elect City Council, Mayor
01:10AM / Tuesday, November 05, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Voters will go to the polls on Tuesday in what has so far been something of a lackluster election season to elect a new City Council, a mayor and three seats on the School Committee.    The campaign between Mayor Thomas Bernard and McCann School Committee member Rachel Branch has been about as low-key as it can get. There have been no debates — Branch has stated she's not running against Bernard but rather for the office — and only a few forums.    Bernard has positioned his bid for re-election to a second term on the work he's done so far in finance and laying the groundwork for "big structural changes" ahead.

Letter: Blackmer Brings Expertise to City Council
Letter to the Editor,
01:00PM / Monday, November 04, 2019

To the Editor:

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, I encourage everyone to vote for Lisa Blackmer for North Adams City Council.

Our council has been lacking an expert on state and federal funding resources ever since Lisa left the council a few years ago. The intricacies of Beacon Hill and Washington, D.C., are something that Lisa has become very familiar with in her professional roles in various towns around the region. Knowing which levers to pull and buttons to press will be a great asset to our city's legislative body.

Mark your ballots carefully and seriously. Avoid the gadflies. North Adams is moving in the right direction and Lisa was, and will be, a huge part of that for years to come.

Letter: Blackmer Has the Vision for City Council
Letter to the Editor,
08:30AM / Monday, November 04, 2019

To the Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Lisa Blackmer for North Adams City Council. In particular, Lisa's vision for our community’s future is one that takes into account decades of being a mother, working in municipal government, and serving on the school council, which she did with my father in the mid-nineties.

Lisa's vision for us is one that takes into account all the details of the challenges our city faces and meets them head on. Lisa understands that for this region to experience more economic growth, we need to capitalize on our assets. We need to have the best schools, safe neighborhoods, and invest in our infrastructure.

I know Lisa both personally

Letter: Blackmer Right Choice for City Council
Letter to the Editor,
07:05AM / Monday, November 04, 2019

To the Editor:

My wife, Lisa Blackmer, is the most loving, hard-working, passionate person I know and she should be re-elected to the North Adams City Council.

When we were married 32 years ago, our family included my children from a previous marriage. Lisa loved them and raised them as her own. I watched her take care of them when they were sick, shuttle them to football games, band and numerous other activities, and teach them all that she knows. She never once complained when I had to work long shifts or spent 15 months guarding the governor.

Working as a state trooper covering the whole region, I worked hard to keep the people of Northern Berkshire safe and meet their needs through

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire County Arc looked back at its accomplishments over the last year at its 65th annual meeting Friday morning at the Berkshire Hills Country Club.

But for one recognition, it went way back -- 65 years, in fact, to the founding of BCArc in 1954.

President and CEO Kenneth Singer, who has been with BCArc for 40 of those years, said at the time of the agency's founding, the world was a very different place for people with disabilities, who were often institutionalized with little decision-making power over their
