The Greeting

Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018

Good morning, 413.  On the day after Election Day, we wake with our next DA, a changing House of Representatives in D.C. and a soon-to-be new register of deeds in Northern Berkshire.

Here's the rundown:

A BRAND NEW DA: Andrea Harrington beats incumbent write-in candidate Paul Caccaviello.

ZIEMBA'S NEXT JOB: Democrat Maria Ziemba edges out Deborah Moran for the register of deeds post in Northern Berkshire.

BRAISED RAGU: Just saying the words will make the senses tingle.

ROCKY ROAD: This  thoroughfare in Hinsdale has been called a public safety hazard.
