@theMarket: Bulls Are Back in the Saddle
By Bill Schmick,
06:45PM / Friday, April 17, 2020
A spate of good news helped stocks this week battle the overriding pessimism of the last month. A possible drug to combat the COVID-19 virus coupled with a flattening of the virus curve in some regions helped the markets to gain ground. Can it continue?   It sure can, although a pause to catch our breath may be in order for next week. Gilead Sciences, the pharma/biotech company, has been working at breakneck speed to develop a drug to treat coronavirus patients. On Thursday, a report in a health-care publication indicated that its experimental drug, Remdesivir, was having some success in human trials. The indexes spiked higher on this news.   On the same day, Donald Trump and his

Baker: Testing, Not Tweeting Will Determine State's Path Forward
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:37PM / Friday, April 17, 2020
BOSTON — Gov. Charlie Baker said Friday that he plans to follow the phased approach guidelines to reopening the commonwealth that were issued on Thursday and not be distracted by the noise of President Trump's Friday tweets.   At his daily briefing on the state's efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Baker was asked whether there was a change in tone from Washington in light of three presidential pronouncements on Twitter, issued at about noon on Friday, that read, "Liberate Minnesota!," "Liberate Michigan!," and "Liberate Virginia, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!"   The governors of the three states Trump

Berkshire Delegation Tells Nonprofits: State Budget in Limbo
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:13PM / Friday, April 17, 2020

State Sen. Adam Hinds also held a budget discussion on his Facebook page later on Friday.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — What is most striking about the fiscal 2021 budget discussions in Boston is how little is known by those in the know.   But what they can say does not sound good.   "We had essentially nine experts on Tuesday giving us their forecasting," Sen. Adam Hinds, D-Pittsfield, said on Friday morning. "I'd say the consensus there was our budget for fiscal '21 will be down between $4 [billion] to $5 billion. And, of course, that's based on current forecasting, so it's, honestly, still unpredictable."   Hinds joined Berkshire

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:32AM / Friday, April 17, 2020
BOSTON — Gov. Charlie Baker on Thursday urged all residents to cooperate with the commonwealth's COVID-19 contact tracing initiative and characterized it as a key step toward getting back to normal in Massachusetts.   "If you happen to receive a phone call from the contact tracing collaborative, we urge residents to take this call and provide the relevant information," Baker said at his daily press briefing. "A couple of minutes of your time and cooperation is key in many cases to stopping the spread of coronavirus and saving more lives.   "It's also key to helping our state build a strategy for how we can get back to something like a new normal.

The Independent Investor: Pandemic Reveals Weakness in U.S. Health-Care System
By Bill Schmick,
04:52PM / Thursday, April 16, 2020
If it is not already apparent, our health-care system needs a lot of work. There is nothing like a global pandemic to point that out. The question is, that after decades of arguments, tinkering and promises, are Americans finally willing to do something to change it?   Now, I am not talking about how much a doctor is being paid, or what a pharmaceutical company can charge, or not charge, for a new wonder drug. Those are popular headlines that, time after time, distract us from the underlying weaknesses in the system. The main problem I have identified throughout this national disaster is the nation's inability to make centralized decisions.   It seems to me that we do not have

Hoosac Valley Girls Promote Social Distancing, Support for Frontline Workers in Video
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:05PM / Wednesday, April 15, 2020
CHESHIRE, Mass. — The two-time state champion Hoosac Valley girls basketball team is sending a dual message with the video it created for social media this month.   Like a lot of basketball teams, the Hurricanes have caught the craze of posting a video montage of players who cannot gather in one place but can virtually unite as a ball is passed from outside the frame to each team member and then relayed to the next, who catches and passes in their own backyard or driveway.   The videos are a fun take on the concepts of social distancing and staying connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.   Hoosac Valley coach Ron Wojcik decided to put a different spin on
