@theMarket: Markets Bet on Stimulus Sweepstakes
By Bill Schmick,
03:36PM / Friday, December 04, 2020
The first week of December saw all three major averages climb to minor new highs. The trigger was more good news on the delivery timetable of the coronavirus vaccines. The expected speedy distribution of the first batch of wonder drugs encouraged investors, even while the number of COVID-19 deaths and cases nationwide continued to skyrocket.   In addition, a new dose of hopeium has infected investors on the stimulus front.

04:30PM / Thursday, December 03, 2020
The dusting of snow the Berkshires got on Wednesday — after enjoying temperatures in the high 50s the days before —may have been a warning of things to come.    The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., has posted a winter storm watch for the Berkshires this weekend and some forecasters say this could be the first Nor'easter of the season.    "It looks like as we go forward we are going to see a strengthening storm coming up the Eastern Seaboard, but the forecasting dilemma, and it always is, is the exact track of the storm," AccuWeather Chief Broadcast Meteorologist Bernie Rayno said on Thursday.   NWS is warning of heavy snow and

The Retired Investor: Bitcoin Is Back
By Bill Schmick,
04:17PM / Thursday, December 03, 2020
After a three-year hiatus, cryptocurrencies have returned and are attracting the attention of investors. Will this time be any different?   Readers may recall the Bitcoin craze that sent the largest digital currency to an all-time high of $20,000 in 2017 and spawned numerous copy-cat cryptos like Ethereum and Litecoin.   You may also remember that all of them came crashing back to earth and ignominy where they have languished, unloved, until this year.   This week, Bitcoin hit a new three-year record of $19, 857. If that is news to you, there is a reason for that. After the last buying frenzy and subsequent crash, the financial media has taken a more cautious approach in

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:59AM / Thursday, December 03, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The school system has seen a number of COVID-19 cases over the last month, which prompted Drury High School to go remote for two weeks as well as some classes at Brayton Elementary.    Superintendent Barbara Malkas told the School Committee on Tuesday that there was a process administrators looked at when considering responses to any exposures to the novel coronavirus.    It seems to be something of a balancing act from her description.    "There have been some presentations through the governor's office about the real need for students to be in schools," Malkas said. "And really, we recognize that, but we also
