By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com
07:47PM / Monday, April 05, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The Select Board Monday voted unanimously to offer the interim town manager position to Charles T. Blanchard.   Board members said that while they thought both the finalists they interviewed were qualified, they were concerned that Robert T. Markel potentially would be torn between his duties in Williamstown and his current role as interim town administrator in Hampden.    “He has a 20-plus hour commitment there which means he’d be limited to a 20-hour commitment here,” Andrew Hogeland said. “When Hugh [Daley], [Town Manager Jason Hoch] and I talked about the job, we thought a part-time job would be OK.   “I still feel

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

@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
