Tu Le plants rakkyo, an allium species native to China and similar to scallions.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Drive past 328 North St., and you cannot help but notice the distinctive art created from repurposed bicycle wheels that adorn the front lawn.   But you also cannot see the whole picture.   Out back, what appears to be a typical single-family home is revealed to be 328North, a community supported agriculture farm producing an abundance of flowers and Asian varieties of greens, herbs and vegetables.   Tu Le and his partner have packed a lot onto their modest 1/2-acre micro farm.   But, then again, the pair have plenty of experience — first in

@theMarket: Stocks Hit With Possible Tax Hike
By Bill Schmick,
04:29PM / Friday, April 23, 2021
It was a losing week for stocks. Most of the blame can be pinned on a proposal by the Biden administration to double the capital gains tax on investments. It is not official yet, but investors are counting on an announcement next week.   Before you hit the sell button on all those huge capital gains you have accumulated over the last few years, know the facts. Right now there aren't any. What we do know is that Joe Biden ran his winning presidential campaign on increasing taxes on the rich and on corporations. He plans to do just that, so it should not be a surprise to investors.   This proposal, if true, would impact the top 0.3 percent of Americans. For those earning $1

The Retired Investor: Our Hospitals Are in Trouble
By Bill Schmick,
04:13PM / Thursday, April 22, 2021
COVID-19 effectively put a halt to most elective surgeries. As the nation gets vaccinated, however, medical authorities have given the all-clear to resume those surgeries. But will patients come back?   The answer to that question is important to the nation's hospitals, whose bottom line has suffered as much as, or even more than, most of their patients. Last year, hospitals were forced to shut down surgery in order to create capacity for skyrocketing cases of the coronavirus. But even after beds opened up again (as a result of the reduction in new, serious Covid-19 cases), most patients are still putting off surgery, concerned that they might catch the coronavirus during a

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:14AM / Wednesday, April 21, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Forget forsythias.   The real harbinger of spring in small towns is the political lawn sign.   And this spring, Wade Hasty livened up Williamstown's curbsides with distinctive bright yellow and green signs carrying a simple message, "Electorate leads the way," and bordered by images of flowers.   "I'm anti-partisan," Hasty said in explaining his choice in color scheme.
