Turkey Vulture Has Landed
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
05:07PM / Sunday, April 04, 2021

Turkey vultures have no feathers on their pink-skinned heads. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Of all things that happened! Low and behold as I looked out on my back yard, what did I see roosting on my marble sculpture, but one very curious turkey vulture, apparently quite pleased about sitting on a large stone carving.   It brought to mind World War II, when the Third Reich launched its Operation Eagle Attack against Britain's air force. Germany had the advantage for the early part of the war, when it showed off its air supremacy in fighter planes and long-range bombers. Even at Dunkirk, the British were backed up against the North Sea and only had to wait to be slaughtered. But

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:15PM / Saturday, April 03, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Members of the town's Finance Committee told Mount Greylock Regional School District officials that the district should be cautious about using non-recurring revenue to fund operational expenses.   Mount Greylock Superintendent Jason McCandless and Business Administrator Joe Bergeron on Wednesday presented the regional district's $25.6 million fiscal 2022 spending plan to the town body for review.   Although the budget includes an approximate 4.6 percent increase in the operating budget for the PreK-12 district, the district is seeking increases of just 1.9 percent and 2.0 percent in the assessments to member towns Williamstown and Lanesborough,

@theMarket: Spring Has Sprung in the Markets
By Bill Schmick,
11:53AM / Saturday, April 03, 2021
New highs on the S&P 500 Index this week gave the bulls more ammunition to forge ahead. Leading the charge were clean energy, infrastructure, and technology stocks. Is this the start of another leg up for the equity averages?   Credit for the advance, in my opinion, was the increase in the rate of U.S. vaccinations (despite the uptick in coronavirus cases over the last week). Second were the actions of the Biden administration in moving rapidly to tackle the needs of the U.S. economy. Possibly even more important, at least in the long term, were their proposed efforts to address the dangerous widening of the income inequality gap in this country.   As readers are aware, the

The Retired Investor: Will Infrastructure Spending Boost Clean Energy Stocks?
By Bill Schmick,
01:21PM / Friday, April 02, 2021
Renewable energy stocks were all the rage last year. This year, however, not so much with clean energy funds taking hits of between 25-50 percent. Will President Biden's proposed $2.25 trillion infrastructure bill breathe new life into this sector?    President Biden ran on a platform that included the build out of an infrastructure plan that would "achieve net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050." By the time of his November election last year, investors had bid up the clean energy sector, which includes everything from electric cars, and clean water to solar and wind power, by over 200 percent in some cases.   New renewable energy exchange

By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
04:15AM / Friday, April 02, 2021
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Members of the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission believe that the agency' s offices should remain in downtown Pittsfield.   Executive Director Thomas Matuszko informed the Executive Committee that BRPC would be going out for bid for office space shortly with a possible deadline in early October. The offices are off Fenn Street, just a couple of blocks away from Park Square.   "I guess one of the things that this committee would be most helpful with for me is getting some input on one of the criteria we had was that we needed to be within a mile, I think, of Park Square and trying to be located in downtown Pittsfield," he said.

By Stephen Dravis,
07:48PM / Thursday, April 01, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A half hour into his interview with the Select Board on Thursday night, interim town manager candidate Robert T. Markel told the town it may want to go with the other guy.   Markel told the board that the reason his interview needed to be rescheduled from Monday to Thursday was that he was in an extended meeting with his current employers, the select board in Hampden.   “They decided to offer me a contract to run through June 30, 2022,” Markel said. “I don’t have that contract. I’ve been thinking in my own situation all day what makes sense for me and what may make the best sense for the town.   “I understand you
