Williamstown Facing Long-Term Decisions About Transfer Station
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff

By Bill Schmick,
12:42PM / Saturday, March 27, 2021
You would think that with a $1.9 trillion spending package, an increasing rate of coronavirus vaccinations, and a potential $3 trillion infrastructure package waiting in the wings, the market would be at record highs. That it is not should tell you something about the indecision plaguing investors.   When good news fails to impress, it usually means stocks (or at least some stocks) are headed lower.
