This off-again, on-again market continues to grind higher, if only by a few points, but it is the direction that counts. This week it was the S&P 500 Index's turn to chalk up another record gain. And so it goes.

If you recall last week, we were at the bottom of the trading range before the "algos" (algorithmic trading programs of high frequency traders) kicked in and took us up again. This time the cast of characters responsible for lifting the markets included a declining dollar, higher interest rates and higher oil prices.

Before you ask, no, none of those reasons make any sense, but they are not supposed to. It's simply a case of more noise in a market that is

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. — The Williams College women's golf team ran away from the field Friday to capture its the 2015 NCAA Div. III Championship — its first national title in only the program's 11th year of existence.    The Ephs held a six-stroke lead heading into the final 18 holes and second-place Washington University-St. Louis immediately cut that to three strokes early in the day, but it could not keep pace with Williams, which collectively had the best round of the day at 25-over par 313.    Williams wound up winning the championship by 18 strokes over second-place Wittenberg College after rounds of 319-322-309-313 for a four-day total of

Recent studies indicate our nation's youth are not investing in the stock markets. That's nothing new. It takes a rare individual under the age of 30 to have the wisdom to invest at a young age. For those who do, their future could be golden.

A recent survey by Banknote.com, a personal finance company, found that just 26 percent of individuals under the age of 30 are investing in stocks. That number hits home when we compare it to the 58 percent of people between the ages of 50 and 64, who do invest in the stock market.

Part of this lack of interest in stocks can be attributed to young people's attitude toward aging, retirement and death. When I was that age, I was

A petition will ask town meeting to ban the use of plastic bags. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Proponents of bylaws to ban single-use plastic bags and polystyrene containers say it is time to make a stand, not a study.   The town will decide at Tuesday's annual town meeting whether to enact two bylaws generated by citizens' petitions.   The Board of Selectmen recommends that the bylaws be reshaped over the next year.   Brad Verter, one of the organizers of the citizen-driven bylaw effort, is having none of that.   "There is zero point in tabling it," Verter said shortly after the board's vote. "Each of their concerns is very easily

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. – On the first day of the 2015 NCAA Women's Division III Golf Championships, play was interrupted by a 2-hour and 13-minute lightning delay, but on Thursday the Williams College women's golf team displayed its own lightning and went from six shots down at the turn to a six-shot lead heading into Friday's's fourth and final round.   "The back nine was pretty amazing," said Eph head coach Bill Kangas. "The kids felt they missed some opportunities on the front, but they didn't miss them on the back. Best part of the back nine was that everyone played well. It's something we can build on for tomorrow. We just have to go

Mary Redstone smooths out batter on a crepe-maker at Oh Crepe! on Main Street.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Oh Crepe! is the newest, locally sourced and "walkable" food option on Main Street.

Even before Oh Crepe's official opening announcement on Sunday, owners Emily Schiavone and Ben Lamb were impressed at how much business was coming through the doors at 57 Main St.

The idea came to the two unexpectedly, Lamb said. After wanting to open a business for a number of years, and searching for something the two could be equally excited about, inspiration came in the form of crepes while visiting Martha's Vineyard.

The two discovered that almost anything can be done with

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mother's Day was last weekend, but the maternal spirit will continue long into the summer at the region's cultural institutions.   One of the highlights of the season is the exhibition of "Whistler's Mother" at the Clark Art Institute. The 1871 icon by Massachusetts-born James McNeill Whistler is owned by France and appears this summer on the East Coast only at the South Street museum.   On Wednesday morning, the Clark hosted a second annual joint press event
