Public Health (@MassDPH) December 15, 2020 BOSTON — The nursing director at Mass General Hospital on Tuesday expressed a holiday wish on behalf of her colleagues across the commonwealth.   "I do want to join with the governor in asking — even begging — each of you to follow the state guidelines, to refrain from gathering for the Christmas holidays," Melissa Jocelyn said during a midday appearance with Gov. Charlie Baker at the State House.   "We know this is a lot to ask, but this is a price to pay so you can

Staff Reports,

Sure, we've said it before, but the Berkshires may really get some snow this week.    The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., issued a storm watch beginning Wednesday afternoon and is forecasting accumulations in excess of 7 inches over the region.    Accuweather is describing it as "the most significant winter storm in several years" that could cause "near blizzard conditions" in parts of New York State and southern New England.    The storm will begin in the Ohio Valley and the southern Appalachians during Tuesday night and east through Wednesday.    Snow is expected to begin falling through Southern New England and the

03:10AM / Tuesday, December 15, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A preliminary public hearing on adopting the state's 40R zoning for two areas of the city is set for Wednesday at 6 p.m.   The hearing will be held by the Community Development Committee over the Zoom platform.   "This is really the sort of the first step on a long, long path toward determining whether or not to adopt 40R officially," said Zachary Fleury of the Community Development Office. Feury gave a presentation to the Planning Board last month.   The state instituted so-called Smart Growth Zoning about 15 years ago to incentivize developers to largely utilize existing structures to create market-rate housing that also provided a

The wall is showing some significant deterioration.

Veteran Spotlight: Staff Sgt. Andrea Esposito
By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
04:33PM / Sunday, December 13, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It was an absolute pleasure to recently interview Andrea Esposito, who served 15 years in the Army and retired with the rank of staff sergeant. She was welcoming, outgoing and provided an excellent overview on her extraordinary military service as we met at Soldier On.   Her career is impressive as she had to overcome a great many obstacles in her life and used those experiences to excel as a leader in the Army.    Esposito grew up in North Haven, Conn., and enlisted in May 1985. Her basic training was at the famed Fort Dix in New Jersey, where she was in one of the first female companies at Fort Dix.   "I used humor and laughter to get

@theMarket: Same Old Stimulus Song
By Bill Schmick,
01:00PM / Saturday, December 12, 2020
Investors should know better by now. Stimulus talks have been going on since July 2020, but politicians in the capital appear to be stuck on the same old issues. Unfortunately, the deadline for a 2020 compromise bill is less than three weeks away.   It is anyone's guess whether the nation's economic and pandemic plight will win over partisan politics. It hasn't so far. The financial markets are not taking kindly to failure at this point. The all-time highs we have been enjoying for the last two weeks have been built on investors' near certainty that at least $900 billion in new Federal stimulus money would be forthcoming shortly.   Those funds were supposed to help

The Retired Investor: Markets Ignore China Sanctions
By Bill Schmick,
01:08PM / Friday, December 11, 2020
During the past few weeks of this presidency, both the Trump administration and Congress have levied additional sanctions against the People's Republic of China. Financial markets and U.S. corporations have largely ignored those efforts; here's why.   Investors have learned over the past four years that tough talk on trade tariffs, blacklisting and other threats were largely ineffectual in curtailing the world's second largest economy. The facts are that U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods have been a failure. Our trade deficit with China is higher now than it was before the trade wars.   China's trade gap with the U.S. was 43 percent bigger in September, for example,
