The Greeting

Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018

Good Thursday unto you, dear Berkshirites.  

Today, I'll begin by sharing a news story on District Attorney-elect Andrea Harrington, who has tapped one lawyer from Pittsfield City Hall and another from Salem to join her legal team.

A little farther north, in Cheshire, Selectman-turned-interim-Town-Administrator Ed St. John IV says he's ready to hit the ground "sprinting." 

And some local superstar will win $1,000 on Friday, should a panel of judges deem him or her the best of this year's Berkshire County's Got Talent.

Everyone's favorite  tough damsel in distress,  Karen Allen, will speak after a showing of "Scrooged," which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

And there's more in these other fine news stories ... 

A NEW BEACON: Phoenix Theatres is on its way to buying the Beacon Cinema, putting $100,000 in renovations into the  building in advance of the sale closing.

STILL LIFE WITH BUSES: There's not much negotiation motion between the Berkshire Regional Transit Authority management and its paratransit drivers.  

LATE ARTIST'S WORK: Wendy Rabinowitz drew inspiration from healing, peace, the earth and common ground. Read about her and see a couple of her pieces, here.

The Beacon Cinema will be closed for renovations as the Phoenix Theaters transition to operating the movie complex. The lobby will get fresh floor varnish and paint, and the theaters will have heated seats and an upgrade to Dolby 7.1 from 5.1. Each seat has to be rebuilt to incorporate the heating elements.
