The Greeting

Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018

Hot tamales, it's cold out!  Please keep your kids  dressed properly when sending them off to school (and don't fret if  you can't afford it, because there are options for assistance in the county).

We have another newsy day here at Eagle HQ, bringing you these top stories:

DOWN BUT NOT UP: Taxes are going down in Pittsfield, but property values are up. It kind of makes for a wash, say officials.

NEW SCHOOL BOARD: The transition committee has dissolved and in its place is a brand new board for the Mount Greylock Regional School District.

1 CHARGED, 2 TO GO: One suspect has been charged in the fatal stabbing of a Pittsfield barber; two others await a day in court.

STRIKE ... YER OUT OF A RIDE: The BRTA paratransit drivers might announce a strike.
