By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:27AM / Tuesday, July 30, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — U.S. Rep. Richard Neal is gearing up for what he believes will be "strong negotiations" on the extension of various federal tax programs.   One of those is investment tax credits specifically for renewable energy. Neal held a "prelude" meeting with Berkshire Gas on Monday and is expected to see the company's parent organization Avangrid's wind farm in Florida.   "Part of the incentive on the renewable front has two issues that I've been very interested in for a long time. The wind production credit is what generates a lot of activity in the renewable space and the investment tax credit is critical. No matter what we

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:45AM / Monday, July 29, 2019

Avocado quinoa rolls.  LENOX, Mass. —  Edward Esko has been telling people for decades that their diet can directly lead to specific health problems.   He's authored more than a dozen books on the subject and founded non-profits aimed at helping people get on better diets to prevent disease. And he sees a big issue coming: Alzheimer's disease.   As the large baby-boomer population moves into the prime age range when the cognitive disease sets in, a lot of people and families will be affected.   "Even though the iceberg has been sighted, it is still miles away. We can still turn," Esko said, chief executive of Berkshire Holistic

NECBL All-Star Game Cut Short by Rain
10:12PM / Sunday, July 28, 2019
MONTPELIER, Vt. -- It was a short but productive trip for the North Adams SteepleCats Sunday at the New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game.   The contest was rained out in the third inning with the Northern Division All-Stars leading, 1-0.   Nicholas Payero had a big hand in keeping the Southern stars down, retiring the side in order in the first as the SteepleCat earned the start in the late-season classic.   Hoosac Valley graduate Matt Koperniak went 1-for-2 at the plate with a single in his first at-bat, and North Adams' Scout Knotts had a productive out, driving a deep fly ball to center field to move a runner in the first.   Meanwhile Taconic

Sen. Adam Hinds had an opportunity to bring the presentation to Pittsfield and it tied right in with the series of technology classes the senior center has begun. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The phone rings and the first six digits are local, looks like your number, so you answer.    Now all of a sudden your grandson is in trouble. He's being held overseas and the only way to free him and bring him home is to wire money to a foreign nation.    It's a scam. The caller wants you to feel urgent. They want you to feel like it is an emergency. And they want you to spend your hard-earned cash to an offshore account authorities will never be able to track

@theMarket: All Eyes on the Fed
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Friday, July 26, 2019
It was a week of chop. That was to be expected, given it was the first week of second-quarter earnings results. While some individual big-name stocks made substantial moves, the overall indexes traded up and down but ended the week about where they started.   It was largely what I predicted would happen. The same will apply to this coming week with all eyes intently focused on the July 31 meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee taking place next Wednesday. Investors expect the Fed to cut the Fed Funds interest rate by at least one quarter percent. Let's hope they do.   In the meantime, aside from earnings announcements, investors were confronted with some bad news out of
