Cold Air Over Midwest Bring Chilly, Rainy Weekend for Berkshires
04:39PM / Thursday, November 11, 2021

Outside of the very highest elevations where a few snowflakes may fall, most of the precipitation should still be in the form of rain."   The jet stream will make a large

The Retired Investor: SALT Away?
By Bill Schmick,
01:43PM / Thursday, November 11, 2021
High-income tax states like Massachusetts, New Jersey, California, and New York would appear to be winners if President Biden's "Build Back Better" plan is finally passed by Congress. The Trump-era limit on state and local tax deductions could provide a $200 billion (or more) wind fall for wealthy Americans.   As it stands now, congressional Democrats, especially those who represent high tax states, are crafting a change in the SALT deduction cap. Presently American households can only deduct $10,000 of state and local taxes from their federal income taxes. That cap deduction is poised to end by 2026.   In a prior column, I explained that in exchange for their votes

Sacco in his newly issued uniform in Miami Beach, 1943. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Pasquale "Pat" Sacco was cruising at 32,000 feet when he realized something was wrong.    It was May 1944 and the 457th Bomber Group was headed for Berlin when it came under attack by German Messerschmitts, Me-109s.    Sacco was under the belly of the bomber, manning the gun in the ball turret. He saw flames and smoke trailing from the back of the Flying Fortress and climbed out of the cramped ball to help the radio man but he would be the only crew member killed.
