Members of the Massachusetts Nurses Association rally outside the federal courthouse in Springfield.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — A U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge agreed on Monday that reopening emergency services in North Berkshire was a priority.

There is a question, however, on where those services could be provided.

Judge Henry J. Boroff, presiding over the Chapter 7 liquidation filing of Northern Berkshire Healthcare, went so far as to wonder if he shouldn't put in an extra layer of authority to uphold the state's previous order for Berkshire Medical Center to operate the Emergency Department.

"The first priority is to get emergency services up at this point," he

'Chef Alex' and owner Farhi Karakaya are reopening MediTerra in North Adams as an Italian restaurant.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — New restaurant Ta Bellas is bringing Italian cuisine back to North Adams.

Owner Fahri Karakaya has reopened Mediterra on Main Street as an Italian restaurant, which the city has not had since the closing of Red Sauce two years ago and Isabella's a year or so before that.

"This area in Northern Berkshire needs an Italian restaurant," Karakaya said. "The menu is purely Italian, and the name is Ta Bellas, 'the beautiful tables.'"

Karakaya explained that he made the switch to Italian because his newly hired chef specializes

Mindy Hackner is settling in as the North Adams library's new director.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The historic North Adams Public Library has a new director.

But she's not new to North Berkshire.

Mindy Hackner worked at the David and Joyce Milne Public Library in Williamstown for nearly 18 years, starting at the circulation desk and then becoming webmaster and children's librarian.

It was a "bittersweet experience" when she resigned in 2013 to take over as director of the Dalton Public Library.

"The opportunity to come back to North County to a larger system drove my decision to leave Dalton," Hackner said recently in her new office in North

Both Daniel Factor and Ian Jackson gave stump speeches at the meet and greet event.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Green Rainbow party is putting three candidates on the statewide ballot.

Last week, two of the three rallied party members at the Rainbow Restaurant, just a few weeks prior to when the campaign officially kicks off.

Attorney Daniel Factor of Acton is seeking election as the secretary of the commonwealth. Factor says he is running to spread ideas currently unheard under the current, mostly Democratic, government.

"We're at a point right now in Massachusetts where basically there is only one party running the show. But when we have conversations with people all over

Just about everyone on Wall Street has jumped aboard the bandwagon by now. Sure there are some that still think the market can go higher but the vast majority of investors are now expecting a major pullback. Welcome to what's called a crowded trade.

Pundits are elbowing their way into the limelight on a daily basis sounding warnings of the imminent demise of the stock market. Traders are short and investors are selling as everyone eyes the exits. It appears all we need is someone to shout "fire" for the panic to begin. I wish it were that easy.

It has been over a month since I first warned that this quarter could be problematic for stocks. I was deliberately vague on

Despite a coordinated and well-financed effort to sabotage and overturn the Affordable Care Act, the open enrollment numbers this week indicate there is a groundswell of support by Americans for a universal and effective health-care coverage.

That may surprise some of you but not this columnist. Back in the day, I lived through the fear and anxiety of having no job or health-care coverage. The nightmare of how to protect my family kept me awake at nights. Fortunately I did land a job, actually a crappy position I took simply because my employer offered health-care coverage.

Right here in my neck of the woods, the North Adams Regional Hospital announced (with three days' notice) it

Richard Relich, left, and Colin O'Keefe address the Williamstown Affordable Housing Committee. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The only developer to propose subsidized housing on both town-owned sites under consideration explained Thursday why it made sense to develop both brownfield sites simultaneously.   The Affordable Housing Committee held its second round of interviews of respondents to its recent requests for proposals to develop the former town garage site on Water Street and the former Photech property on Cole Avenue.   Only Boston's Arch Street Development submitted a plan to use both properties, and on Thursday its principals met with the

I've got Shakespeare on my mind.

First, the Bard's birthday is coming up, and I always remember it because it's close to mine. His is April 23, mine is April 26. Of course, his birth was 450 years ago, so he's got a few years on me. (Not that I'm telling how many!)

Second, I just signed my daughter up for a session of the Riotous Youth camp at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox. She did a session last summer and loved it, and I have to admit it was pretty funny hearing a monologue from "Twelfth Night" coming out of the mouth of a 7-year-old.

Third, since said daughter has been bitten by the Shakespeare bug, she also is auditioning for the new "Shakespeare
