The Greeting

Monday, Nov. 12, 2018

Greetings, Berkshires. A recount is underway in Florida (the state, not the town in Berkshire County). Here, the Office of the Berkshire District Attorney prepares for a transition. 

In our other headlines:

HONORING VETERANS: Berkshire County residents pay tribute Sunday to those who serve in the armed forces.

MIXUP  AT THE POLLS: Monterey voters were flummoxed when they were asked to show their identification at the ballot box.

RACE IN SCHOOLS: Hinsdale's school district is trying to figure out how to promote anti-discrimination efforts, after a young student recently experienced racial bias regarding an invitation to a school-age party.

TRANSITIONING: Paul Caccaviello's office readies for his exit and the entrance of Andrea Harrington, winner of the Nov. 6 race for Berkshire district attorney.

VISION LOSS?: There's no mention of the so-called New Vision in job ads for the Berkshire Museum's executive director's post; the vision was trumpeted by the museum's former leader.
