Veteran Spotlight: A Vietnam Diary, Part II
04:01PM / Sunday, September 19, 2021
    MARCH 23: Buddy's birthday today. Celebrated with scotch, bourbon and crabmeat. McCABE IS DEAD. There's no dignity in death in battle – it comes in the sorrow, helplessness and hopelessness that comes down to the family back home by telegram.   MARCH 24: Went to church. Free-bread-peace. The rain sounds beautiful on our tin roof. Worked on our bomber. Tomorrow isn't the only thing to live for. And read. Everything is only for a day – both that which remembers and that which is remembered. Before a guy can know even his God, he must know himself. He must find inner peace in his heart. We must be content with what we have, yet constantly try to

By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
01:10PM / Saturday, September 18, 2021

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Elizabeth Freeman Center's annual fundraiser to support survivors of domestic and sexual violence has undergone a couple of changes to be more inclusive and fit the needs of the pandemic.

The former "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" event is now "Rise Together For Safety and Justice," a series of smaller fundraising walks throughout Berkshire County to stand against gender-based violence.

The event's original symbol was a red shoe and featured men walking a mile in perceivably feminine footwear down North Street at the year's last Third Thursday event  In 2019, the event drew hundreds of supporters and raised at least

@theMarket: Markets Enter the Danger Zone
By Bill Schmick,
04:33PM / Friday, September 17, 2021
It has been a bumpy week for stocks, and it could get worse if you believe the headlines of the financial press. The issue I see is that just about everyone is expecting a nasty period ahead for equities. That makes me somewhat bullish.   Calling short-term market moves in this environment is akin to fortune-telling. It is short on analysis, and long on my gut feelings. Granted, I too, have been warning folks that the September-October 2021 time period has been a seasonally difficult time for equities. My column last week addressed the possibility of a 5-10 percent correction, and what investors should do about it.   The media has now proclaimed that we are entering a "danger

The Retired Investor: Moderates Winning on Tax Debate
By Bill Schmick,
04:57PM / Thursday, September 16, 2021
For months, wealthy U.S. taxpayers and corporations have been living with the specter of higher taxes under the Biden administration. It is a pretty good bet that taxes will go up, but not as much as you might expect.   Throughout the week, Democrats in the House and the Senate have been horse-trading over the amount of spending versus the amount of taxes necessary to pay for President Biden's $2.3 trillion budget plan. Republicans are already on record that they will oppose any new tax hikes at all.   Since the Democrats hold such a slim majority in both the House and the Senate, any legislation will need to accommodate both moderates and progressives within the party in

Op-Ed: The Facts About COVID-19 Vaccines
By Dr. James W. Lederer Jr. , Guest Column
01:36PM / Tuesday, September 14, 2021
Like many across the country, I was thrilled when the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at the end of August. Full approval affirms that the Pfizer vaccine is safe, effective, and has met the rigorous standards required by the FDA. This represents a light in the long tunnel of the pandemic, and it fills me with a great sense of optimism for the future health and safety of our community.   Despite this good news, the highly contagious Delta variant continues to spread around the country. We know it can infect individuals who are vaccinated, however vaccinated people are much less likely to experience serious illness or be hospitalized than unvaccinated people. Cases

Plan ahead before joining the "Great Resignation"
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:31AM / Tuesday, September 14, 2021
It's been called the "Great Resignation" – the large number of Americans voluntarily leaving their jobs. If you plan to be part of it (ideally with another source of employment lined up), you'll need to make the financial moves necessary to keep making progress toward your long-term goals.   Here's some background: After a year in which the pandemic caused so many people to lose their jobs, the economy is opening back up, but the "quit rate" – the number of jobs people have voluntarily left – has been breaking records. Some economists say this high quit rate is because people are confident of getting better jobs, with higher pay and
