Letter: Cities Not Looking for 'Holiday' Trees
Letter to the Editor,
03:00PM / Tuesday, October 08, 2019

To the Editor:

The cities of N Adams and Pittsfield are NOT looking for holiday trees. They ARE looking for Christmas trees. Why? Well, Jews don't celebrate Hanukkah with a tree, they light a menorah (Hanukkah isn't even a holiday that is remotely like Christmas, but is equated with it because of it's proximity on the calendar), and as far as I know there is no Muslim holiday that uses a tree to represent the holiday.

I'm Jewish, and am fine with the Christmas tree in Park Square. it's not my holiday — but it is the holiday celebrated by most of the 98 percent of Berkshire County that is not Jewish. I wish my Christian brethren a peaceful and joyful Christmas and

It's Not Too Soon for End-of-Year Financial Moves
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:22AM / Tuesday, October 08, 2019

We've still got a couple of months until 2019 draws to a close, but it's not too early to make some end-of-the-year financial moves. In fact, it may be a good idea to take some of these steps sooner rather than later.

Here are a few suggestions:

* Boost your 401(k) contributions. Like many people, you might not usually contribute the maximum amount to your 401(k), which, in 2019 is $19,000, or $25,000 if you're 50 or older. Ask your employer if you can increase your 401(k) contributions in 2019, and if you receive a bonus before the year ends, you may be able to use that toward your 401(k), too.

* Add to your IRA. You have until April 15, 2020, to contribute to your IRA for

Nancy Gomez tells her story with the help of Gloria Escobar, standing.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The newly renovated Greylock Federal Credit Union on Kellogg Street will be offering more than just banking services.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:25AM / Monday, October 07, 2019

State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, left, Mayor Thomas Bernard and Mayor Linda Tyer come out in support of Senator Markey. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The state's junior senator pledged on Saturday to stand with the Berkshires for another six years — if they continue to stand by him.    U.S. Sen.

His stop at Dottie's Coffee Lounge on Saturday morning hosted by the Berkshire Brigades follows a similar visit a few weeks ago by U.S. Rep.

Magical Wings Herald Unique Airlift for Dragonflies
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
05:28PM / Sunday, October 06, 2019

A mating pair of ebony jewelwings will remain coupled for hours in a bizarre configuration with the male attaching behind her head, and female attaching at first abdominal segments instead of conventional distal end. As a boy of seven years outside in the flower garden teaming with life, I was free to observe the natural wonders of flying insects abounding at assorted flowers including tiger swallowtails, mourning cloaks, silver spotted skippers, and the many bees, paper wasps, from honey bees to hornets and cicada killer giants. Katydids and praying mantis, too.   Thanks to incentive provided by my dear parents, Leonard and Eleanor Hansen, my appetite for insect studies was

Letter: Resources Available to Stop Vaping
Letter to the Editor,
01:00PM / Sunday, October 06, 2019

To the Editor:

Vaping by youth has become what the U.S. Surgeon General calls an epidemic and many people are working to find solutions. I'm asked frequently what can be done to turn the tide, and now new resources are available to educate youth and help those who want to quit vaping.

Sadly, many youth are unaware of the facts about and the dangers of vaping. To help, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health developed a campaign designed for youth found at mass.gov/vaping. It provides facts and materials for young people that compare vapes and cigarettes: both put nicotine and cancer-causing chemicals in their body and both are highly addictive and dangerous for young
