Happy Friday, people of the Berks. I'm told a hard frost will be hitting the hills tonight, which means Pops Hoffenberg will have to scurry home at the end of the day to assist the missus with covering any delicate plants and remaining veggies. It's been a banner year for our root vegetables, with softball-size beets and another season of plump carrots.
And, just like up at the Ashfield bureau, The Eagle also has a bumper crop, but it's news stories:
NO NEW PIKE EXIT IN BERKSHIRES: A state transportation project manager assured a concerned group of South County residents Wednesday, telling them that any plan to put a new Massachusetts Turnpike exit in the hilltowns won't be happening.
LAST OF HER KIND: The St. Stanislaus Kostka School's only remaining nun has been reassigned; a religious order has served the school for 106 years.
SUIT FILED IN THE NORTH: The historic town of Bennington is filing suit against big pharma over its opioid crisis.
STUDENTS ARE SCARED: Some students Bard College at Simon's Rock are wracked with worry after the report of an attack on campus last week, and equally concerned with what they call a racially charged environment at the school for gifted students.
A LONG BLOOMING LOOK: The Stockbridge Health Board wants to take a wide and deep study of cyanobacteria blooms and their effect on the Stockbridge Bowl.
