THE BEST OF THE BEST:  The Eagle takes home daily and Sunday Newspaper of the Year honors, and also wins other prestigious awards for its journalism, handed out Thursday at the annual New England Newspaper and Press Association conference.
BROWN FROWN: Brown drinking water is on tap tonight at a meeting in Great Barrington.

Please subscribe  to The Eagle in print, digital or both.
