Nor'easter Bringing Drenching Rain to Region
07:08PM / Sunday, October 24, 2021
The last couple weeks of largely pleasant weather is about to get washed out.    But instead of snow, Accuweather reports that a "rare" fall Nor'easter will bring heavy rain throughout the region this week.   "An early season tempest could bring a wind-driven, chilly rain to portions of the Northeast from Monday through Wednesday," AccuWeather meteorologist Randy Adkins said, adding that flooding could be a significant concern across southern New England.   With a late start to the fall foliage season underway across southern New England, many trees still have plenty of leaves on them, making the possibility for downed trees due to strong winds a

@theMarket: Stocks Are Signaling an All-Clear
By Bill Schmick,
05:55PM / Friday, October 22, 2021
The S&P 500 Index and the Dow have managed to pierce overhead resistance. This week, both hit record highs. It seems only a matter of time before the NASDAQ will follow but probably not before we have a minor pullback.   As of Friday morning, equities have managed to string together seven days of continuous gains. Do I hear eight? That is a tall order, because stocks are now overextended by just about every measure I follow. We could do with a minor pullback, or pause, before extending this rally higher.   Credit for the gains can be attributed to third quarter earnings results. The results have been much better than expected. The big fear was that supply chain disruptions and

Williamstown to Resume Search for Town Manager
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:09PM / Friday, October 22, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board is a looking for a unicorn — a town manager who can heal the town's division, promote inclusion and diversity, hire a police chief, be open and communicative with the board, and manage town operations and keep its finances on an even keel.   Neither of two the finalists interviewed on Friday morning fit the bill, though they separately fulfilled several of the criteria.    The several months search to replace Jason Hoch ended with board discussing a long-term interim town manager to take the town through the next budget and town meeting season. No votes were taken.    Richard Downey, the village administrator in

The Retired Investor: The Fed's Key Inflation Gauge
By Bill Schmick,
03:42PM / Thursday, October 21, 2021
Inflation is worrying investors. Every new data point seems to be heightening their anxiety. Oil and other commodities are raging higher. The rate of wage increases is also climbing, but the most important variable the Fed is watching is about to move higher.   Housing and/or home ownership is one of the most important components of the U.S. economy. However, housing prices per se are not included in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Instead, the CPI measures the cost of shelter, which is broken down between actual rents paid and the Owners' Equivalent Rent or OER.   OER is the amount of rent that would need to be paid in order to substitute a currently owned house as a rental
