LEE, Mass. — It's depressing to be unable to provide for your child. With diapers costing more than $100 a month, that's happening to thousands of parents in Berkshire County.   Most government assistance programs don't cover the cost of diapers and hundreds of parents are struggling or are just one incident away from struggling to provide them for their children. But a group of mental health professionals are trying to change that.   In September, a team of volunteers launched the Berkshire County Diaper Project, which delivers hundreds of diapers to local food pantries to be there for those who need it. In just six months, the group has provided more than

By now you know that this year's first quarter was nothing to write home about. The benchmark S&P 500 Index managed to eke out a gain of just 0.4 percent for the quarter. The Dow posted a 0.3 percent loss, while the NASDAQ did gain 3.5 percent. Can we expect more of the same this quarter?

The short answer is yes. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. Investors have been conditioned to expect nothing but double digit gains in the stock market over the last few years. This "new normal," based on abnormally low interest rates, is coming to an end, at least in this country.

As I have written in the past, stock markets do not go straight up. Usually, we experience

Children in America need to learn more about money. How to value it, save it, spend it and retire on it. The evidence thus far indicates that we have all been doing a poor job in educating our kids. Here are some suggestions to remedy that failing.

Let's start with the munchkins, pre-kindergarten through third grade, and the concept of cash. To those little people, credit card purchases mean nothing at all, but watching Dad, Mom (or a grandparent like me) plunk down some greenbacks for a treasured game, book or ice cream makes a lot of difference. Don't miss an opportunity to have your child watch you count out and put the coins in the parking meter or pay for a purchase when they

ADAMS, Mass. — The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., says a weather transmitter on top of Mount Greylock will be back online by June.   The transmitter, which broadcasts official warnings, watches, forecasts and hazard information 24 hours a day, has been out of service since May 2014.   Late last summer, the head of the Albany office said he expected it to be back in service by Oct. 1.   Earlier this month, the Albany office of the NWS issued a statement reading, in part, "We continue to make progress on clearing remaining administrative details.   "Once the final permit requirements are completed ... and once snow melts on Mount Greylock ...
