PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Regional Planning Commission last week approved a comment letter to the Legislature in regard to the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program launched by Gov. Charlie Baker in late 2020.   In its feedback, the commission largely advocated for the inclusion of rural areas in the project's definition of "underserved and overburdened" communities, saying rural areas such as the Berkshires are disadvantaged and lack transit services as well as mobility options.   "Previously, we've commented that rural areas should be included into this definition of overburdened and underrepresented communities," Transportation

Seaman John Bonacquisti and his shipmates during World War II. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It was an absolute pleasure to interview John Bonacquisti for this week's Veterans Spotlight.    At 95 years of age, he is remarkably fit, outgoing and possesses the wonderful quality of The Greatest Generation humility and old-school class.    Bonacquisti served his country in Navy from 1944 to 1946 as a seaman, then as an electrician his last six months. He grew up in Pittsfield and left school at 18 to enlist.    "About 25 of us left high school before graduation and went in.

@theMarket: Stocks Grind Higher
By Bill Schmick,
09:31AM / Saturday, August 14, 2021
The major indices have been working higher over the last few weeks, while rotation among sectors continues unabated. The higher markets climb, the more investors begin to question how long the bull market can sustain its upward trajectory.    "Thin" would be the way I would describe the movement upward in the S&P 500 Index. The same term could be used for the slight downward drift in the NASDAQ and technology stocks in general this week. It is August, after all, and volumes dry up as many on Wall Street take vacations.   Technically, we are trading in the middle of a monthly range in many sectors. A cursory view of some of the sectors reveals that semiconductors

The Retired Investor: Back-to-School Season
By Bill Schmick,
01:27PM / Friday, August 13, 2021
It is not an easy decision. On one hand, consumers want to go out and shop for their children's upcoming school year. But at the same time, they are concerned that if they do, they might catch the coronavirus. There is no easy answer.   This 2021-2022 school year was supposed to usher in a new beginning. As such, retailers are still expecting sales of clothes, school supplies, and college dorm décor items to increase by 5.5 percent from last years' depressed COVID-levels. Even so, that still won't match 2019's 6.7 percent increase, but it is getting close, or was until the Delta variant arrived.   I thought that parents have the extra cash to spend, given
