Misplaced priorities hinder Berkshires

To the editor:

Two juxtaposed headlines in the Friday, April 15 Eagle provided a stark illustration of the choices we are making in the Berkshires.

"Carousel capped with new cupola" snuggled uncomfortably up against "Further school spending cuts eyed." As long as we invest in our tourists ahead of our residents, we'll continue to have more of one and less of the other.
