Dr. Alex Sabo encouraged those affected by the hospital's closure to lean on a support 'team.'

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The stopgap measures are in place.

Local banks are working with those who lost their jobs to smooth out finances. Agencies like BerkshireRides are working to make those who need to get to Pittsfield for doctor's appointments have a way to get there. Visiting nurse and hospice services are back up and running in North County.

But none of that takes away from the feeling of trauma the community has experienced with the closure of the North Adams Regional Hospital nearly three weeks ­ ago — trauma that has been experienced by North Adams

State Sen. Benjamin Downing with colleague Sen. Barry Finegold, who is now seeking the treasurer's office, at a meet and greet Friday.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Barry Finegold doesn't want the state's pension funds invested in fossil fuels.

Sure, he can support a bill to do that. But Finegold says he wanted to do even more with the pension system.

So he is running for treasurer.

"I want to make sure we are responsible and I want our pension funds to reflect our values. Instead of investing in companies like Exxon Mobile, we should invest in green tech and renewable companies," the Andover Democrat said on Friday, when he met with members of the

As spring finally arrives throughout the country, you would think the stock market would celebrate, but not this year. The indexes were slammed again this week and we can expect more of the same in the months ahead.

By now, if you have been following my advice, you have already raised some cash by selling your most aggressive equity holdings. How much cash you hold is up to you. However, before you sell more, remember, that this sell-off is only a temporary state of affairs. By the fall, you want to be fully invested once again.

In the meantime, don't expect the stock market to simply drop like a stone. What I expect is a series of lower highs and lower lows. That process is

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
Captain American (Chris Evans) finds truth, justice and the American Way has changed since WWII as he and Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) find themselves at odds with the TPTB.

Much care is taken by directors Anthony and Joe Russo to make "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" everything fans of the Marvel Comics franchise might desire. Yet The Great Unwashed will be hard put to distinguish it from the mass of blockbuster adventure yarns splashing their special-effects laden agitations across the silver screen this time of year.

iBerkshires celebrated 14 years on Friday with cake and pizza. Members of the editorial team Community Editor Rebecca Dravis, left, Editor Tammy Daniels, reporter Jack Guerino and Pittsfield Bureau Chief Andy McKeever (a partypooper for not wearing a birthday tiara).

Fourteen years.

Doesn't sound like much but in the virtual world it's pretty significant.

iBerkshires.com is celebrating its 14th birthday today. (That's why there's balloons and candles all over our site and Facebook page.)

We're only 9 years younger than the World Wide Web. And we're among the oldest, if not the oldest, hyperlocal news site not attached to any other media, print or otherwise.

A sign at last year's pancake breakfast to raise money for JDRF educates visitors on what people with Type 1 diabetes must do simply to eat breakfast.

WEST STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Do you know how many carbohydrates there are in half a cup of maple syrup?

Kristi Farina of West Stockbridge knows there are 50 grams. Plus she knows there are 15 grams per pancake, though that number varies widely based on the size and thickness of the pancake.

She has known since 2001, when her son Dawson, then only 2 years old, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

She now knows the "carb counts" of pretty much every food Dawson has ever eaten and knows how to try to balance those carbs with

School Committee members Robert Ericson and David Langston were on opposites of the enrollment debate. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Thursday night started on a road that could lead to the elimination of choice and tuition students at the junior-senior high school.   On a vote of 4-2, the committee rejected the enrollment recommendation of the School Building Committee to instead certify a "study enrollment" to the Massachusetts School Building Authority.   The study enrollment provision allows districts entering the MSBA's feasibility study process to do so with two enrollment projections under
