High Cost of Saying Goodbye: Williamstown Copes with Severance Payouts
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:00AM / Monday, August 09, 2021
  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Town officials last week expressed confidence that Williamstown will have the money to meet its obligations from a pair of severance agreements negotiated in 2020 and 2021, but questions remain about how nearly $280,000 in liabilities went unaccounted for in the budget and were not communicated to the town's Finance Committee.   The liabilities stem from the severance agreements executed between the town and its former police chief and town manager.   The former town manager negotiated a deal with the former police chief, who left the town's service in December 2020. The Select Board negotiated a severance agreement with former Town

05:19PM / Sunday, August 08, 2021

An injured ruby-throated hummingbird stunned from hitting glass window is placed on a warm lampshade, where it spent the night.   NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — When I lived at Marshside house adjacent to a fresh water cattail marsh on Pond Road in North Truro, Cape Cod, an unfortunate event shaped my response to an injured hummingbird.   For the next day and a half, I provided care at a table lamp, to eventually see it fly away.   As sunlight filled my living room that Sept. 12, 2012, I prepared for Sunday service at my local church, and thought nothing about leaving a window open to usher in the fresh air to such a promising day. Little did I know that when I returned

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Fire District Building Committee voted Wednesday to recommend the partnership of Mitchell Associates Architects and Pittsfield's EDM to design the new Main Street fire station.   In a narrow vote of the seven-member committee, the Mitchell/EDM group ranked slightly ahead of Cambridge's Galante Architecture Studio, the clear second favorite among four firms who responded to the district's request for proposals.   Last month, the Building Committee, which was appointed by the elected Prudential Committee that oversees the district, heard in-person presentations from the four respondents, a group that also included Cranston,

By Bill Schmick,
04:43PM / Friday, August 06, 2021
As stocks hit record high after record highs, it might be normal to expect that equities will just get too expensive and collapse under their own weight. Not necessarily.   One of the investor's favorite valuation metrics is called the forward price/earnings (P/E) ratio. The concept is quite simple: compute the market value of any stock and divide it by what the company is projected to earn over the next 12 months. If the ratio is higher than the long-term average, consider it expensive.
