The Greeting

Friday, Nov. 2, 2018

Welcome to your F-R-Y-day, as some of you baby boomers used to say back in the 1960s. 

Speaking of the '60s, TheBeat brings you a marijuana two-fer, with a pair of articles on two Berkshire towns who are just saying yes and no to recreational pot sales.

And, believe it or not, there's more to report than just pot. Here goes ...

ON THE COMPANY DIME: The Sandisfield road chief is out after being accused of doing personal work with municipal equipment and while on the clock for the town.

TURMOIL AT THE TOP: Mismanagement is alleged at the Great Barrington Housing Authority, leading to a so-called amicable exit of the former executive director.

GOING COASTAL: Main Street Hospitality Group, of Red Lion Inn fame, expands into Newport, R.I.

SEEING THROUGH THE WALLS: The Berkshire  County Sheriff's Office voluntarily shows off its spending record.
