The Greeting

Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018

And, for our top stories:
MEGA-FRENZY: Berkshire County is abuzz with jackpot fever.

GRONK PEP TALK: The Patriots star delivers a video message to Nick Carnevale, a young shooting victim on the road to recovery.
LESSONS FROM SANDY HOOK: A victim, a parent and the lead investigator from the Sandy Hook mass shooting will speak at a local panel discussion.
SURRENDERS TO AUTHORITIES: The third suspect in a fatal stabbing turns himself in to police.
