State Rep. Gailanne Cariddi is shown the proper technique to administer CPR from Red Cross volunteer Janet Read.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Sure, the Red Cross will be at the scene of a fire providing services to the victims. And sure, it will be collecting blood.

But the local chapter wants people to know that it does a lot more than that.

The Berkshire County chapter of the American Red Cross invited legislators and mayors into their office Friday morning to show them exactly what they contribute to the county.

The chapter is supported by donations from local businesses and individuals to provide an array of services from nursing classes to helping families connect with service members

Previously, I wrote about why it's a great time to clean during cold-weather months. This time I want to inform you of 10 great reasons why you should clean your carpets (or rugs) on a regular basis.

Extend the wear life: Carpet and fiber manufacturers recommend carpets should be cleaned every 12 to 18 months. This helps remove damaging soils, keeps the appearance looking like new, and helps extend the wear life, maximizing your investment in your floor covering.
