Very slight chance for delays Thursday for Northern Berkshire towns, especially those in higher elevations. Bigger storm this weekend will start Saturday. https://t.co/i1mn9OQbNE

That looks to end this weekend as a major storm system leaves a mess across the nation and shifts into New England and temperature begin to dip.    But before we get to Friday night we have to get through Wednesday. A storm moving to the north should miss most of the South Berkshire on Wednesday night but with a winter weather advisory posted

Submitted by Edward Jones,
03:49PM / Tuesday, January 14, 2020

As a business owner, you're always thinking of what you need to do now. But you can't forget about the future – yours and that of your business. So it may be a good idea to consider your personal retirement plan and business succession strategy.

Let's start by looking at a few retirement plan possibilities:

* Solo 401(k): This plan, which is also known as an Owner-only 401(k), is available to self-employed individuals and business owners with no full-time employees other than themselves or a spouse. A Solo 401(k) offers many of the same advantages of a traditional 401(k): a range of investment options, tax-deductible contributions and the opportunity for tax-deferred

By Rick Duteau, iBerkshires Sports
10:57PM / Saturday, January 11, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass — Justin Kruszyna began skating again after 16 years off the ice when his two young sons first started playing hockey two years ago. So it was only fitting that sons Tyler and Bradley were there on Saturday afternoon to watch their dad play with the rest of the Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey League Alumni against the Boston Bruins Alumni.   The Kruszyna family is just one example of all the magic that was created at Peter W. Foote Vietnam Veterans Memorial Skating Rink on Saturday, as a packed house enjoyed a friendly battle between their local hockey heroes and notorious members of the Boston Bruins Alumni. Things were close at the break, before the Bruins

@theMarket: The Teflon Markets
By Bill Schmick,
04:12PM / Friday, January 10, 2020
It was another up week for the stock market. As we hit record high after record high, investors want more and expect to get it. Forecasts are getting even rosier for this year and, if all goes well, we can expect the signing of the long-awaited Phase One China trade deal next week. What's not to like?   Geopolitics for one thing. As I wrote last week, investors should expect a response after the killing of Iran's No. 2 guy, Gen. Qasem Soleimani. I expressed hope that it would be sooner rather than later since the market hates the unknown. That turned out to be the case.   The Iranian response, however, was largely symbolic. Several rockets that did little damage and took
