05:08PM / Sunday, March 14, 2021

Gaylord with colleagues in Afghanistan.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It was an absolute pleasure to interview this week's Veterans Spotlight feature. Jacob "Jake" Gaylord served his country in the Army National Guard for six years as a specialist.   Growing up in Cheshire, he graduated from Hoosac Valley High School and enlisted at age 19, inspired to serve by the 9/11 terror attacks.   "I just walked right into the recruiter and signed up …. always wanted to serve my country," he said. "I remember watching the attack on the World Trade Center and it just fueled my fire to serve."   His basic training was done at Fort Leonard

Mayor Thomas Bernard helps CEO Anthony Parrinello cut the ribbon on Saturday.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A location once known for its "Friendly" atmosphere has reopened with a new product but hopes that residents will still find the same welcoming ambience.   "There's a clear sky in North Adams," Mayor Thomas Bernard quipped as he helped Clear Sky Cannabis' Chief Executive Officer Anthony Parrinello clip a blue ribbon for the shop's grand opening on a clear and cold Saturday morning.    Those skies were cloudy for a bit as the city's first cannabis retail shop wound its way through the lengthy state licensing process and then

North Adams Youth Basketball League Sidelined
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
06:27AM / Saturday, March 13, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams Youth Basketball League and city are at an impasse and while league organizers hope to salvage a season, the city fears completely opening up the Armory could compromise in-person learning.     Basketball leagues, like many other activities last year, have been largely put on hold with COVID-19 running rampant. And even though basketball is not the easiest sport to play during a pandemic, the youth league's organizers believe there has to be some way.   "We are willing to do whatever it takes to get these kids back into the gym," NAYBL board member James Sarkis said. "The public needs to know we are trying to

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A member of the Drury High community tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday.   Also the Drury girls basketball game was canceled.    Officials declined to say on the record if the positive test affected the game against Hoosac Valley, but the Hoosac team withdrew.

The game, which was to have been the Hoosac Hurricane's season finale, will not be made up.   The boys junior varsity and varsity games were still scheduled to be played Friday

@theMarket: Tech Stocks Rise From the Dead
By Bill Schmick,
04:44PM / Friday, March 12, 2021
The large cap technology sector bounced back this week as bond yields fell. It is a see-saw market filled with several cross-currents. But if you want to know where stocks are going, keep your eyes focused on the U.S. Ten-Year Bond yield.   In my last column, I explained how rising bond yields are like kryptonite to the continued performance of what I call "super tech stocks." Over the last two weeks, the NASDAQ 100, for example, experienced a 10 percent-plus down draft, as bond yields rose to 1.60 percent from 1.25 percent. Investors sold FANG stocks, and technology shares in new-era sectors, like solar and electric vehicles, and bought old economy stocks, like in energy,

Tanner, whose team was unbeaten last year, hopes to play for McCann next year.  FLORIDA, Mass. — Abbott Memorial School student Tanner Reynolds received a special delivery from his basketball coach.    "This Trophy means a lot to me," Reynolds said at a small ceremony held outside of the school on Friday morning. "It is my first one."    Reynolds' team, the Indiana Pacers, went undefeated during the 2019-2020 North Adams Youth Basketball League season. When COVID-19 stormed through at the conclusion of the season, gatherings were limited.   This, of course, meant no banquet, no trophy ceremony.   "I was thinking as

Guest Column: Expand Vaccine Eligibility to Higher Education Workforce
By James Birge, Guest Column
11:51AM / Friday, March 12, 2021
We already know that our teachers and caregivers are heroes, but during this challenging year they have become superheroes. I was happy to see that earlier this month, Governor Baker announced that K-12 educators, child-care workers, and school staff are eligible for vaccination starting March 11.    I agree that Massachusetts needs to do what it takes to move toward K-12 schools being fully open for in- person learning, and vaccinating education workers is a positive step forward.   However, it's surprising to see that faculty and staff in higher education are not included in these eligibility guidelines. Indeed, colleges, including the Massachusetts State University
