@theMarket: Markets Are on the Cusp
By Bill Schmick,
03:11PM / Friday, October 01, 2021
It was another tumultuous week in the markets. Volatility spiked as events in Washington and around the world injected an atmosphere of caution and indecision among investors. I expect more of the same.   Welcome to October. A month in which I see a continuation of the last few weeks of uncertainty. The political circus in Washington, D.C., is not helping, and is set to continue making headlines in the days ahead. The debt limit controversary is probably the largest challenge investors face this month. Simultaneously, the battle between progressive and moderate Democrats over the passage of two government spending programs, will continue to monopolize investor's

The Retired Investor: Out of Gas
By Bill Schmick,
04:19PM / Thursday, September 30, 2021
Winter approaches and with it a potential natural gas crisis. Areas of Europe are already scrambling to find the energy required to heat homes and continue their economic rebound. Could the U.S. be next?   Over the last year, prices for European natural gas have jumped by almost 500 percent. Natural gas prices on this side of the pond have also spiked by more than 100 percent this year. But it isn't just countries in the Northern Hemisphere that are feeling the scarcity. Parts of Asia, which are importing liquified natural gas (LNG) at record prices, are being forced to switch to coal and heating oil as LNG shipments decline. Japan and Korea are somewhat protected so far, thanks to

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:48AM / Thursday, September 30, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board on Monday discussed potential uses for $2.2 million the town is in line to receive from the American Rescue Plan Act.   And it asked residents to come up with more ideas for the windfall.   The $1.9 trillion stimulus bill passed earlier this year in Washington, D.C., includes money designated for municipalities.

The remainder of its $2,222,073 allocation will be available no sooner than August 2022, Blanchard said.   Town Hall already has identified two modest
