BOSTON — State officials stressed the need to continue pandemic protocols over the holidays as they announced nearly $50 million in grants to help small businesses through the economic upheaval caused by COVID-19.   The surge in cases of the novel coronavirus after Thanksgiving has put the state's medical system under duress and threatens its ability to continue to operate. Public health officials are bracing for another surge following the Christmas and New Year's holidays.    "If the second holiday season produces a surge in infections that we saw similar to the one that came out of Thanksgiving, we'll be in serious danger of overwhelming, our

Traffic Commission Addresses Valentine & Lakeway Intersection
By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
04:37PM / Sunday, December 20, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The best answer to the dangerous intersection at Valentine Road and Lakeway Drive may be to reconstruct it.    Commissioner of Public Services Ricardo Morales told the Traffic Commission on Wednesday the right way to fix it is to change the geometry of Valentine Road rather than installing signage or markings because the road gives drivers space to travel at high speeds.    "That would be my preferred option, in a sense preventing drivers from traveling at those higher speeds rather than counting on the drivers being able to see the signs or the lines in the road and counting on them to slow down," he said.   One solution could be

The Retired Investor: Oil's Comeback
By Bill Schmick,
01:55PM / Friday, December 18, 2020
Earlier this year, the price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil slumped into negative territory for the first time in history. Oil traded at a negative $37.63. Today, that same barrel of oil is changing hands at $47.48. What changed?   More than any other sector, the coronavirus has had a devastating impact on the global oil and gas industry. Declining consumer demand in the first quarter of the year in combination with high levels of energy production threatened to exceed worldwide oil storage capacity. OPEC plus, the oil cartel, took action on April 12 by cutting oil production by 9.7 million barrels per day, but by then it was too late. By April 20-22, you couldn't give away a
