Letter: Vote for Cummings and Boskovich for Williamstown Select Board
Letter to the Editor,
11:00AM / Monday, May 10, 2021

All part and parcel of our town's misfortunes, is the DIRE Committee's aggressive, radical campaign implying our community is racist.   Albert Cummings and Tony Boskovich want a return to moderation for our town. Together they bring considerable experience, intelligence and understanding to the present circumstances, both from professional perspectives and personal ones. Many in our community thank them for stepping up and wish to support them in

06:14AM / Sunday, May 09, 2021

The safest place for cats is indoors away from cars, predators, diseases and other hazards.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Humane Society appreciates well-meaning people picking up cats they believe to be "strays" and bringing them to the shelter but cautions against this act unless a person is positive that the kitty is, in fact, a stray.   With warm weather on the horizon, residents are bound to see more cats roaming their neighborhoods, many of whom are outdoor cats just going about their daily routine.   "During the spring and as the weather starts to turn cold, the beginning of winter, we see an influx of people rightfully being concerned

@theMarket: Stocks Make New Highs
By Bill Schmick,
03:46PM / Friday, May 07, 2021
It has been the best quarterly earnings season in a long time. More than 87 percent of companies that have reported thus far have beat earnings estimates. That is a record and investors celebrated.   Last week, I mentioned that this earnings season has been a classic example of a sell-on-the-news.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average made yet another new high yesterday, as did the S&P 500 Index. The
