What You might have missed

Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School is currently accepting applications for students in grades 6 through 9 for the 2021-2022 school year and for students in grades 6 through 10 for the 2022-2023 school year.

In the 1800s, public mourning rather than private grieving was a way of life. Victorian social etiquette laid down strict social rules for mourning, from the clothing worn to the length of time individuals observed mourning customs. An exhibit, "Lifting the Veil: Mourning in the Berkshires" by the Berkshire County Historical Society at Arrowhead, examines mourning practices in the Berkshires.

I took the month of August off before upping the hours at my part-time job, And I have to be honest, I was bored out of my mind! What do retired people do all day? Daytime TV really stinks and reading all day was great, but not as fulfilling as working eight hours a day and chatting with my coworkers. And housework isn’t high on my list of priorities.

I started watching foodie videos on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.

It has been a bumpy week for stocks, and it could get worse if you believe the headlines of the financial press. The issue I see is that just about everyone is expecting a nasty period ahead for equities. That makes me somewhat bullish.

It was 679 days between games, but very little had changed after the first week of competition in the New England Small College Athletic Conference.

That was where I had my first real Josh Billings RunAground moment. An Ironman competitor and I were the only ones at Mah-Kee-Nac approaching 6 a.m., and we stood in silence for a stretch, watching the fog rise with the sun off a calm-as-glass Stockbridge Bowl. It was just a fleeting moment, amidst a day of controlled chaos that didn't end until after Mac Jones and the Patriots had milked out the clock on a win over the Jets and my seven-month-old son and I drove around south Berkshire County collecting equipment in the twilight.
