By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
03:43PM / Sunday, May 16, 2021
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It was an honor to interview this week's Veteran Spotlight. Steven Schultze served his country in the Marine Corps from 1997 to 2019, retiring as a lieutenant colonel.    Growing up, he had a desire to give something back as his dad and uncles were Marines during the Vietnam War era.   Schultze enlisted in May 1997 and, he said, "the recruiter's eyes got real big when he found out I was a college kid who wanted to enlist."    He went to boot camp at the famed Parris Island in South Carolina and described it as "kind of like a root canal, painful at first but necessary to get better." He graduated in August 1997

Vermont Wildlife Offers Tips on Dealing With Wild Babies
12:48PM / Saturday, May 15, 2021
MONTPELIER, Vt. — Watching wildlife is enjoyable, especially when young animals appear in the spring. But it is best to keep your distance. Picking up young wildlife can do more harm than good, according to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, and it is also against the law.   When people see young animals alone, they often mistakenly assume these animals are helpless or lost, in trouble or needing to be rescued. Bringing young wildlife into a human environment often results in permanent separation from their mothers and a sad ending for the animal.   Handling wildlife could also pose a threat to the people involved. Wild animals can transmit disease and angry wildlife

@theMarket: Inflation Fears Weigh on Investors
By Bill Schmick,
03:13PM / Friday, May 14, 2021
Most stocks took it on the chin earlier this week. Technology shares lead the rout, but it didn't take long before just about everything else followed tech lower. By the end of the week, it was as if nothing had happened. That's called "chop." Get used to it.   The Consumer Price Index (CPI), which investors use to gauge future inflation, took the lion's share of the blame for the downdraft in equities. Economists had warned that we should expect a higher monthly reading (0.2 percent) for April, but the data came in at 0.8 percent. That computes to a 4.2 percent price gain year-over-year and was almost triple the rate that anyone had expected.   The market

The Retired Investor: A Labor Shortage Solution
By Bill Schmick,
04:38PM / Thursday, May 13, 2021
The hiring boom that was expected in April 2021 fizzled. Last Friday's nonfarm payrolls report came in at 266,000 jobs gained compared to over a million expected. It was the biggest miss in decades.   Politicians and many corporations were quick to provide a ready scapegoat for that failure. They blamed it on the weekly payments of $300 in federal unemployment aid through September 2021, on top of the regular unemployment benefits paid out by the states. In short, the fault apparently lies with the Biden administration's stimulus package. If the president and the Democrats had not provided these overly generous benefits, more workers would be thrust back into the work force in
