The major averages made all-time highs again this week, except the Nasdaq. It is just a matter of time before that tech-heavy index joins the party. But what happens after that?

The short answer is that we go higher, maybe not right away, but soon. January, you may recall, was a down month, which was similar to last year. This month saw a recovery followed by higher highs just like last year. If the trend versus last year continues, we should see further gains in March, possibly fueled by more demand from overseas investors.

State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier addresses the large crowd of mostly women at Friday's legislative breakfast.

LENOX, Mass. — Food assistance for young mothers can help a lot.

But it won't buy diapers.

And the cost of those very necessary items have become a burden on low-income mothers.   Marcy Gaul helps provide them through the newly formed Berkshire County Diaper Project, which collects donations and redistributes them.   "Our diapers disappear in days," Gaul told the Berkshire County Commission on the Status of Women and state legislators Friday morning.   The commission is a volunteer group of local women designated as special state

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
Sony Pictures Classics Julianne Moore loses herself in an Oscar-winning portrayal of a woman facing Alzheimer's disease.

Exiting from a screening of "Still Alice," the heart-wrenching tale of a renowned linguistics professor's valiant struggle with early-onset Alzheimer's disease, a fellow viewer bemoaning the fragility of life adamantly apprised her pal, "which is exactly why I'm going to Costa Rica!" I analogously thought "Ferrari" ... as if some consolation prize could possibly assuage any fears of the life-stealing horrors just witnessed. . Oh,

The Department of Labor is trying again. This week, a proposed new rule, backed by the president, would force all financial advisers to adopt a "fiduciary responsibility" toward their clients when overseeing retirement plans. If passed, it could substantially reduce the fees and expenses we pay for that advice.

So exactly what is this fiduciary responsibility that President Obama is championing? The rule would require all advisers to put their client's interests above all other considerations when making investment recommendations on accounts covered under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. That means the bulk of middle class savings represented by all types of
