As such, the virus appears to be very good at selective slaughter.   As one of those who are most susceptible to dying from this virus, I have done a lot of soul searching over our future.  Today, I will begin to share some of these thoughts.

This is similar to how voting is done in Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah and Washington State.   A third bill referenced, H.4623 and presented by 2nd

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:04AM / Wednesday, May 27, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city administration is looking at what kind of scenario North Adams can operate under without knowing how the state budget will play out.    Mayor Thomas Bernard told the City Council on Tuesday night that "worst case is a hard thing to project right now simply because with 44 percent of our budget coming from state sources, a worst case is something that we can't manage, so what we're trying to figure out is what the worst case is that we can reasonably operate under."   The mayor said, in response to Councilor Jason LaForest's questions about an "emaciated" budget, that they would be  "slicing

Know Your Risk Tolerance at Different Stages of Life
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:32AM / Tuesday, May 26, 2020

As an investor, you will always need to deal with risk of some kind. But how can you manage the risk that has been made clear by the recent volatility in the financial markets? The answer to this question may depend on where you are in life. 

Let's look at some different life stages and how you might deal with risk at each of them: 

• When you are first starting out: If you are early in your career, with perhaps four or even five decades to go until you retire, you can likely afford to invest primarily for growth, which also means you will be taking on a higher level of risk, as risk and reward are positively correlated. But, given your age, you have time to overcome the

12:09PM / Monday, May 25, 2020
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Trumpeters and musicians of all ages across the nation are being invited to play taps at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day.   The idea comes from CBS News "On the Road" correspondent Steve Hartman and retired Air Force bugler Jari Villanueva to keep the spirit of the holiday alive.
