10:05AM / Friday, June 18, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Saturday is the first time that Juneteenth will be celebrated as state holiday but also as a national holiday.    The date has long been celebrated in parts of the country, sometimes as Emancipation Day, the day in 1865 when Union Army Gen.

Juneteenth has been a state holiday in Texas for nearly 40 years.   President Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation nearly three years earlier but it would take the advance of the Union Army into the Confederacy to make freedom a

Williamstown Zoning Board OKs Cell Tower
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
10:59PM / Thursday, June 17, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The fourth time was a charm for the developer seeking to build a wireless communications tower on Oblong Road.   By a vote of 5-0, the Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday approved a special permit for Pittfield's Evolution Site Services to build a 153-foot cell tower on land leased from Phelps Farm.   Evolution originally came to the town with a proposal for a 165-foot tower that would have accommodated up to five cell service providers. The final project as approved shaved 12 feet from that plan and limits the developer to four spaces for cell companies, starting with AT&T, which was a co-applicant on the request.   The decision came at

The Retired Investor: Chlorine, Cars and the Supply Chain Challenge
By Bill Schmick,
04:35PM / Thursday, June 17, 2021
Supply chain shortages are showing up across the nation. Some items, such as chlorine for America's pools and used cars, just illustrate a lesson we need to learn.    The chlorine shortages illustrate why supply chains are so important and how fragile they can be when faced with something as devastating as the pandemic. Last year, when lockdowns kept most Americans hunkered in their homes, an enormous home improvement wave swept through the country. Demand for home offices on the inside, and new recreational improvements on the outside, skyrocketed.   Gazebos, firepits, and swimming pools were just some of the items that consumers decided would make life bearable under a
