ADAMS, Mass. — Adams Community Bank is now offering fuel and heating equipment loans.

"After the especially cold winter we experienced a year ago, our bank is pleased to offer this program as a benefit to our customers needing assistance," said Charles O’Brien, president

The Fuel and Heating Equipment Loan Program is designed to assist borrowers with the escalating costs of fuel needed to heat their homes, to replace old inefficient heating systems, or to install supplemental systems.

To qualify the residence must be an owner-occupied, one- to four-family dwelling in Berkshire County. Condominiums are also eligible if they are individually metered.

The witch might have been wicked, but the Boston Pops were nothing short of wicked awesome on Friday night when they accompanied a screening of 'The Wizard of Oz' at Tanglewood.

 

The first time I brought Noelle to Tanglewood, she was 18 months old. Needless to say, she doesn't remember the trip to see a family-friendly matinee orchestra concert with her cousins who were visiting from Oregon. 

Those cousins at the time were about the same age as Noelle is now, so it seemed appropriate to bring her back to Tanglewood this summer to experience a place I have loved since I was a kid growing up in Pittsfield.

Noelle plays the viola, so I knew she would

Berkshires native Martha Coakely was in Pittsfield on Thursday, making a swing into the county in the days leading to the primary.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley asked for votes and urged financial support as she visited 3rd Thursday and met with a smattering of the local cultural crowd at the Whitney Center for the Arts last week.

"It's always a privilege to come back to Berkshire County, said Coakley, a former North Adams resident and alum of Williams College.  

Coakley, who as attorney general has had jurisdiction over utility rate regulation, said Massachusetts needs to build on current efforts toward greater energy efficiency.

The Historic Commission is hoping to save two or three 19th-century mill houses for a museum.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Historic Commission is hoping to salvage a set of 170-year-old mill houses as museums.

The properties on Houghton Street dating from between 1840 and 1870 were set for demolition, which the commission signed off on in April.

But Commissioner Alan Horbal, who initially motioned for the demo approval, had a change of heart, he said.

"I went to the mayor for a one-year stay," he told the commission on Thursday. "Converse to my own recommendation to the board, because we didn't have all the facts."

Horbal said had carpenters check the first

NPR's 'Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me' taping last year at Tanglewood. The show returns to Lenox on Thursday. LENOX, Mass. — Peter Sagal has made a career of speaking truth to power ... at least those who might be listening on Saturday morning when his wildly successful radio show, "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!" airs on National Public Radio stations across the country.   The show is billed as "the NPR news quiz," and each week Sagal and a rotating panel of humorists break down the week's news and crack legions of fans. The topics range from front-page current events to anecdotes worthy of "Ripley's Believe It Or

It is that time of the year again when the world's central bankers gather together in Wyoming to sort out the economic conditions of the global economy. This year most bankers will be looking at labor growth, or lack thereof, and what to do about it.

In this country we have seen some surprising gains in the employment picture this year despite a less than stellar economic growth rate. Unemployment has dropped from above 7 percent to 6.2 percent in less than a year. Fed officials are somewhat pleasantly puzzled by that performance. FOMC members are watching things like how many part-time jobs are being filled versus full-time positions. They are also looking for hints of wage growth

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) learns about the joys and dangers inherent in humanity from his society's memory archive, Jeffrey Bridges, in 'The Giver.'

The good thing about the apocalypse, if you happen to survive it, is that the society that then evolves is so nice and orderly … everything in its place, y'know. No anger, competition, hunger, strife or pestilence. Boy, they sure learned their lesson. And gee, all the architecture is so neo-Guggenheim museum.

The bad thing is, it's a stultifying bore. Which is why Brenton Thwaites' Jonas, the starry-eyed
