To the Editor:

I'm impressed by the dedication and focus of all those who, as recently reported, are working to adapt our local health care system to the new realities.

Among those involved are the State's Office of the Governor and Office of Health and Human Services, our elected officials, Berkshire Health Systems, the ambulance services, and health care unions.

I'm grateful for the considerable progress made in recent months and believe that it bodes well for the further cooperative development of a system that meets the needs of all in our community, especially those who face the most challenges.

One of two colorful, locally made bike racks installed Wednesday.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The odd-looking piping on Main Street isn't modern art — though you'd be excused in this art-filled downtown for thinking so.

Instead, they are very modern bicycle racks meant to encourage two-wheeled, pedal-pushing transportation.

Volunteers installed the "NAMA" racks on Wednesday night in front of Luma's Muffin & Mug and at the pocket park on Eagle Street.

Mass in Motion received a donation to increase bikability in North Adams; the first step was the bike racks so those biking would have a place to stash their two-wheelers. Mass in Motion worked with McCann

The nursing program at McCann Technical School will move back to the campus of BMC North for the school year beginning in January.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Berkshire Medical Center has stepped in to save the licensed practical nursing program at McCann Technical School.

The post-high school program will move back into space it was forced to precipitously exit when North Adams Regional Hospital went bankrupt in March.

"It is absolutely fabulous," said James Brosnan, superintendent of Northern Berkshire Vocational School District, adding with a laugh, "It lowered my blood pressure by 20 points."

The program was facing termination without dedicated space for

Clarksburg voters approved combining posts for building inspector but rejected a farm animal bylaw.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Voters rejected a bylaw on Wednesday that would have restricted the housing of large farm animals.

And out of the 15-article special town meeting warrant, the only thing that passed were a group of questions creating a paid building inspector post.

Seven questions related to spending had to be tabled or withdrawn when town officials learned Wednesday that they could not access the funds.

"We'll have a window in November, early December in order to use the funds," said Town Administrator Carl McKinney, anticipating another special town meeting

There was a lighter crowd at Wednesday's public meeting on the Stroudwater report at MCLA but a number of people continued to object the idea a full-service hospital wasn't viable.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Berkshire Medical Center may consider seeking Critical Access designation for the former North Adams Regional Hospital with the help of the state Department of Public Health.

The federal designation, which allows for higher reimbursement rates from Medicare, is pointed out as a priority for the return of inpatient services in the just-released assessment report on the community's health-care needs.

"The primary question is whether it's possible and sustainable

Serving as a trustee of an Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)-sponsored retirement plan or as part of an investment committee that acts as a fiduciary is an important responsibility. You agree to preserve the assets entrusted to you on behalf of the plan participants and beneficiaries you represent. The legal requirements expected of most fiduciaries are, in many ways, the same as those of prudent investment professionals.

In other words, fiduciaries are expected to make fund-management decisions with the same professionalism as a prudent expert.

 

Who can be a fiduciary?

A fiduciary is a person, company, or association that acts in a capacity of trust and is therefore
