The new H.D. Reynolds showroom is across the highway from Whitney's Farm Market and Garden Center.

Turkey Vulture Has Landed
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
05:07PM / Sunday, April 04, 2021

Turkey vultures have no feathers on their pink-skinned heads. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Of all things that happened! Low and behold as I looked out on my back yard, what did I see roosting on my marble sculpture, but one very curious turkey vulture, apparently quite pleased about sitting on a large stone carving.   It brought to mind World War II, when the Third Reich launched its Operation Eagle Attack against Britain's air force. Germany had the advantage for the early part of the war, when it showed off its air supremacy in fighter planes and long-range bombers. Even at Dunkirk, the British were backed up against the North Sea and only had to wait to be slaughtered. But

@theMarket: Spring Has Sprung in the Markets
By Bill Schmick,
11:53AM / Saturday, April 03, 2021
New highs on the S&P 500 Index this week gave the bulls more ammunition to forge ahead. Leading the charge were clean energy, infrastructure, and technology stocks. Is this the start of another leg up for the equity averages?   Credit for the advance, in my opinion, was the increase in the rate of U.S. vaccinations (despite the uptick in coronavirus cases over the last week). Second were the actions of the Biden administration in moving rapidly to tackle the needs of the U.S. economy. Possibly even more important, at least in the long term, were their proposed efforts to address the dangerous widening of the income inequality gap in this country.   As readers are aware, the

The Retired Investor: Will Infrastructure Spending Boost Clean Energy Stocks?
By Bill Schmick,
01:21PM / Friday, April 02, 2021
Renewable energy stocks were all the rage last year. This year, however, not so much with clean energy funds taking hits of between 25-50 percent. Will President Biden's proposed $2.25 trillion infrastructure bill breathe new life into this sector?    President Biden ran on a platform that included the build out of an infrastructure plan that would "achieve net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050." By the time of his November election last year, investors had bid up the clean energy sector, which includes everything from electric cars, and clean water to solar and wind power, by over 200 percent in some cases.   New renewable energy exchange

By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
04:15AM / Friday, April 02, 2021
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Members of the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission believe that the agency' s offices should remain in downtown Pittsfield.   Executive Director Thomas Matuszko informed the Executive Committee that BRPC would be going out for bid for office space shortly with a possible deadline in early October. The offices are off Fenn Street, just a couple of blocks away from Park Square.   "I guess one of the things that this committee would be most helpful with for me is getting some input on one of the criteria we had was that we needed to be within a mile, I think, of Park Square and trying to be located in downtown Pittsfield," he said.
