LACH-ING A LIQUOR LICENSE: No drinky winkies at Lach's Lounge for the next three weeks, after a suspension of its license to serve because of problems with drugs and gunfire.

HEALING TOGETHER: Congregation Beth Israel in North Adams hosted a vigil last night for the 11 people gunned down for their religious beliefs on Saturday in western Pennsylania.
