By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Monday, April 02, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Regional Transition Authority is looking into being part of the creation of a transportation management association for ride sharing.   The BRTA's hours of operation limit the authority's ability to get workers to and from work beyond the typical first shift. This new group would be a collective of employers who would team up to provide rideshare options.   Companies would be able to pay to be part of the nonprofit to provide the transportation for their workers and other groups that may have vans can contract with the TMA to provide the rides.   "It is in the works right now that they are looking to do that," said

The waxwings have a distinctive mask and feathers that look like they have been dipped in paint.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Low and behold on Palm Sunday, there was a feeding flock of showy cedar waxwings feasting on weather-worn crabapples in the First Congregational churchyard here in North Adams.   What a delightful sight to behold: a finest, kind choice by the forerunners who landscaped the churchyard with several crabapple trees that bloom a profuse pink and white cavalcade of blossoms in early spring.    In addition to the beautiful bloom, the crabapple trees produce succulent fruit that serves the avian fauna, yielding nutritious energy for sustaining

@theMarket: Will April Be Better for the Markets?
By Bill Schmick,
04:36PM / Friday, March 30, 2018
It has been a tough month for stocks and February wasn't much better. Granted, it was a small price to pay for last year's great gains, but, as in life, all good things must come to an end.

None of the above is certain, and, as readers know by now, the markets hate uncertainty.    This quarter, both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Indexes have seen a nine-quarter win streak come to an end. As of this
