Williamstown Board of Health Stops Short of Mandating Masks
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
12:37AM / Tuesday, September 14, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Board of Health on Monday decided against mandating an indoor face-covering policy but instead strengthened the language in an existing town advisory that masks be worn indoors regardless of one's COVID-19 vaccination status.   The board met with a single-item agenda to consider its course in light of last week's directive issued by the Lee-Lenox-Stockbridge Tri-Town Health Department, which instituted a mask mandate for all indoor spaces and "crowded outdoor public events."   The members of the Williamstown board decided that a similar directive is not warranted by the current COVID-19 infection rate in the North County town, and

@theMarket: Some Brokers Are Getting Bearish
By Bill Schmick,
12:31PM / Saturday, September 11, 2021
For four days in a row, the markets closed down. That is in itself unusual. It has only happened four other times since the March 2020 low. Does this portend further downside in September?   On Friday, the markets tried to bounce back. The damage to the averages has been minimal thus far. But given how far we have come, more and more brokerage houses (Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and Morgan Stanley, among others) are warning that the September-through-October time frame could see a 10 percent correction. How much weight should you give these gloomy predictions?   If you are a short-term day, or swing trader heed their call, since we are probably overdue for such a downdraft. This

The Retired Investor: Japan Is Worth a Look
By Bill Schmick,
02:27PM / Friday, September 10, 2021
It has been 30 years since the Nikkei 225 last touched the 30,000 level. However, many investors look beyond this island nation and focus instead on its Chinese neighbor. That may prove to be a mistake.   To some investors, it is the epitome of value investing. Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway made some sizable bets on several Japanese trading companies last year. Japan's stock market is cheap compared to many other markets. But deservedly so, say the bears, since investors have had to put up with years of sluggish growth and perennial deflation.   Japan is home to many well-known companies, (think Sony and Toyota) that have balance sheets flush with cash.
