Just about everyone on Wall Street has jumped aboard the bandwagon by now. Sure there are some that still think the market can go higher but the vast majority of investors are now expecting a major pullback. Welcome to what's called a crowded trade.

Pundits are elbowing their way into the limelight on a daily basis sounding warnings of the imminent demise of the stock market. Traders are short and investors are selling as everyone eyes the exits. It appears all we need is someone to shout "fire" for the panic to begin. I wish it were that easy.

It has been over a month since I first warned that this quarter could be problematic for stocks. I was deliberately vague on

Despite a coordinated and well-financed effort to sabotage and overturn the Affordable Care Act, the open enrollment numbers this week indicate there is a groundswell of support by Americans for a universal and effective health-care coverage.

That may surprise some of you but not this columnist. Back in the day, I lived through the fear and anxiety of having no job or health-care coverage. The nightmare of how to protect my family kept me awake at nights. Fortunately I did land a job, actually a crappy position I took simply because my employer offered health-care coverage.

Right here in my neck of the woods, the North Adams Regional Hospital announced (with three days' notice) it

Richard Relich, left, and Colin O'Keefe address the Williamstown Affordable Housing Committee. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The only developer to propose subsidized housing on both town-owned sites under consideration explained Thursday why it made sense to develop both brownfield sites simultaneously.   The Affordable Housing Committee held its second round of interviews of respondents to its recent requests for proposals to develop the former town garage site on Water Street and the former Photech property on Cole Avenue.   Only Boston's Arch Street Development submitted a plan to use both properties, and on Thursday its principals met with the

I've got Shakespeare on my mind.

First, the Bard's birthday is coming up, and I always remember it because it's close to mine. His is April 23, mine is April 26. Of course, his birth was 450 years ago, so he's got a few years on me. (Not that I'm telling how many!)

Second, I just signed my daughter up for a session of the Riotous Youth camp at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox. She did a session last summer and loved it, and I have to admit it was pretty funny hearing a monologue from "Twelfth Night" coming out of the mouth of a 7-year-old.

Third, since said daughter has been bitten by the Shakespeare bug, she also is auditioning for the new "Shakespeare

Bob and Bill St. Pierre received full support from family and friends when they thought up the concept for PopCares, an organization dedicated to their father.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — William St. Pierre was well known around the Northern Berkshires as a guy who was willing to help anyone and everyone.

About three years ago, the former textile mill manager was diagnosed with lung cancer. In February 2012, St. Pierre died.

But his legacy of giving is continuing.

"When my dad died of lung cancer, we decided we had to do something in his honor. He was always helping people, going out of his way. He would never drive past anybody broken down. He was always helping everybody and

The Affordable Housing Committee interviewed the first of two applicants to develop two town sites for housing with Vice Chairman Charles Bonenti. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The first developer to come before the Affordable Housing Committee to discuss a proposal to develop the former Photech Mill property stressed on Wednesday that those plans are preliminary.   The group led by Pittsfield's Berkshire Housing Development Corp. and Boston's Women's Institute for Housing and Economic Development was the first to be interviewed by the committee, which plans to make a recommendation to the Board of Selectmen later this month about who to choose for both the Cole Avenue

Public Safety Building Study Committee Chairwoman Jane Patton and member Andrew Hogeland review the minutes of its last meeting. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town's Public Safety Building Study Committee on Tuesday decided to take two steps that it hopes will move it closer to making a decision on a potential site for a joint fire-police facility.   The committee will ask the estate of Kurt Lehovec whether it will allow town-hired engineers to do test borings and wetlands delineation on the 3.7-acre Main Street parcel the estate owns.   And the committee decided to ask the town's procurement officer, Town Manager Peter Fohlin, to consult with the attorney for the

NARH supporters hold hands in solidarity at a meeting Tuesday night at the American Legion.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Former Northern Berkshire Healthcare employees and supporters gripped hands and cheered on Tuesday night after a day filled with hope — and state officials.

"The pressure that this community has put on has shown a light, and they see that we weren't kidding," Michael O'Brien, a union delegate, said to the packed American Legion Hall. "We meant business, and we are going to keep it up."

Gov. Deval Patrick and Attorney General Martha Coakley both were in the city during the day to discuss the processes in place for getting at least the
