By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Berkshire County again got high marks from the governor on Wednesday for being No. 1 in the percentage of vaccinations it's been administering.    "The big message we got from the public was vaccinate, vaccinate, and there's no question the fastest way to do this is with high volume sites," Gov. Charlie Baker said at Wednesday's daily briefing.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:29PM / Wednesday, February 17, 2021
BOSTON — Vaccination slots will open up Thursday for those age 65 and older and anyone age 16 and up who has at least two medical conditions.   This will expand access to the COVID-19 vaccine for another million residents — but the wait for an appointment may be long.    "It's important to remember the federal government only sends states a small amount of vaccine every week," Gov. Charlie Baker said at this daily briefing on Wednesday. "But the last several weeks, the federal government has shipped about 110,000 first doses per week, to the commonwealth of Massachusetts.   "Unless we see a massive increase in shipments from the feds,

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:30AM / Wednesday, February 17, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Conservation Commission last week approved a pond restoration project for a homeowner on Henderson Road.   Margot and Bill Moomaw asked the town to allow them to address nuisance vegetation, particularly bur reed, that has taken hold in their pond since they treated it for Eurasian milfoil nine years ago.   "With this submission, the Moomaws are requesting approval for a multi-year pond management plan, beginning with hydro-raking to remove the accumulated biomass, muck and silt in order to create better conditions for aquatic species, and to restore depth to the pond," the couple wrote in a letter supporting their application.

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:17AM / Saturday, February 13, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The calendar read Feb. 9 when the Planning Board met on Tuesday.   But the conversation brought to mind a date seven days earlier as the board and the public relived many of the same arguments that have dominated the body's discussion for months as it hashes out a new zoning bylaw to regulate the production of cannabis.   "I've said this a half dozen times, I'm amazed I have to say it again," Andrew Skinner said as he pushed the board to draft a bylaw that allows less canopy square footage for outdoor production.   Planning Board members could be forgiven for feeling kinship to Bill Murray's character in the movie

@theMarket: Financial Froth Infects Markets
By Bill Schmick,
06:24PM / Friday, February 12, 2021
One sure sign that stocks are getting overdone, is the actions of overconfident investors that bid up stocks in a euphoric frenzy, only to dump them at the first sign of trouble.

Wall Street's "Reefer Madness" event this week is just such an example. Certain stocks in the Cannabis sector saw their share prices double and then triple in a matter of days. Penny pot stocks with little to
