The Greeting

Monday, Dec. 31, 2018

Good morning, Berkshires. We're standing on the threshold of 2019. I can only imagine what wonderful things will happen in the coming year.

But this is not an outlet for futurists (except for Amanda Drane's forward-looking Looking Ahead, Pittsfield column)! The news lives in the now. And in the past, too. Enjoy these recent  reports from our intrepid news staff.

NO. 1 BIGGEST AND BEST OF THE YEAR: The Eagle shares its top pick for the most important news story of the year: Andrea Harrington sailing to victory in the race for Berkshire district attorney. 

FRESHMAN REVIEW: Mayor Thomas Bernard looks back over his first year in office.

DEPORTATION THREAT: A longtime Lenox resident faces deportation to Colombia after a notification from the government.

THE SUB SHOP ROBBERIES: Police nab two in connection to a recent holdup at an Angelina's sub shop in Pittsfield; it might be tied to a previous stick-up case of a similar ilk.

SNOW DELAYS: Bousquet, a Berkshire ski and winter fun hotspot, is experiencing delays in opening because of maintenance problems.

10 MORE BIGGIES: You've seen our top 10 stories. But you haven't seen our next biggest 10 stories. Read about them here.

The truth is hard to find, but with our holiday special, both you and a friend can stay in-the-know. Subscribe or renew today and you'll get an extra subscription to give as a gift. Click here to start now.

Very best,
