Hello, Berkshires! Time to rise and shine and grab the new year by the lapels. To riff off Tony the Tiger: "This year is going to be grrrrrrreat!"
Today is New Year's Day. Our Eagle reporters, editors, photographers, press operators and delivery people don't take holidays off, for the most part. There's always a handful of Eaglers plugging away, keeping the news flowing to the good people of Berkshire County.
Whatever your reading style (light, heavy or speedy), there's always something in The Eagle to suit your needs. Why, just last night, the team at Eagle HQ produced these fine headlines:
MENTAL OVER SHORT-TERM RENTALS?: These residential units have everyone in a huff, from landlords and tenants to housing advocates and taxpayers. Here's what the new law means for you.
IT'S BLOWING HARD OUT THERE: Heavy winds hit the Berkshires, along with some warmer air. Could this be connected? Eagle weather maven Clarence Fanto breaks it down. Also, here's today's Accuweather forecast.
GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL: A fellow who goes by "Gunz" Beckett is caught after allegedly robbing two sandwich shops in Pittsfield.
2020 VISION: Politically minded Berkshirites share their thoughts about Elizabeth Warren's announcement Monday that she's running for the U.S. presidency.
'TWAS THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT, YOUR HONOR: A man has his bail lowered significantly after allegedly going on a shopping spree in a stolen car and using stolen credit cards on the day after Christmas.
