@theMarket: Investors Are Chasing Stocks Higher
By Bill Schmick,
04:17PM / Friday, September 03, 2021
The proverbial Wall of Worry provided plenty of foot holds for investors this week. The major averages continued to make new highs (or hovered just below them), despite bad news and focused instead on anything that could justified higher prices.   The belief that the Delta variant of the coronavirus may be peaking in the worst-hit states was enough to cheer investors. Not that the extremely contagious infection ever had much of an impact on the markets anyway. Still, the hope that Delta has peaked gave added umph to large cap growth stocks.   Helping this summer's move higher was almost $30 billion in fresh money that has come into the market since July. It appears that many

The Retired Investor: Non-Fungible Tokens Come of Age
By Bill Schmick,
04:21PM / Thursday, September 02, 2021
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have been around since 2014, but I'll bet you haven't heard of them until this year. As part of the crypto craze, these NFTs are commanding millions of dollars in spending and expanding into everything from original art to tacos.   NFTs are digital assets. For those like me, who are old enough to be grandparents, and may still read the newspapers, the concept of a digital asset may not be all that intuitive. "Non-fungible" means that it is a unique asset that can't be replaced with something else.   NFTs are bought and sold online (usually with a cryptocurrency), and stored and encoded in the same way. The difference is that

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:03AM / Thursday, September 02, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — For the third straight year, the town's property tax rate is going down, but a typical homeowner can expect to see his or her tax bill increase.   That is because property valuations rose enough in calendar year 2020 to allow the town to raise the increased money it needs for fiscal year 2022 without raising the tax rate, principal assessor Chris Lamarre told elected officials on Monday night.   "The median single family home value for fiscal '22 is determined to be $328,300," Lamarre said. "The median single family tax bill will be $5,555. That's an increase of $272 over last year. Last year, the median single family tax bill

Williamstown Ceremony Recalls Legacy of Spruces Mobile Home Park
By Stephen Dravis,
05:15PM / Monday, August 30, 2021

Select Board Chair Andrew Hogeland leads Saturday's memorial ceremony.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A decade after Tropical Storm Irene devastated the Spruces Mobile Home Park, one of the chief legacies is the knowledge of just how easy it was for the storm to wreak havoc on a vulnerable population on the edge of town and edge of consciousness for many of its residents.   "That night, we realized many of us couldn't afford to stay in a hotel," Carol Zingarelli said of her fellow Spruces residents. "I appreciate what was said earlier about so many people living on the edge.   "Living in Williamstown, people don't think of Williamstown
