The Greeting

Wednesday, 2-27-2019

Hello, Berkshires! 

In case you haven't flicked on your TV today, or haven't logged on to, we're doing some special coverage on the site of both the testimony of the former personal attorney of President Trump and of Trump's second historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Stay tuned to our site for the latest updates.

In local news, Eagle reporters are following up on two fires, one in Great Barrington that destroyed a garage and another at Sweet Brook Farm in Williamstown. The former story contains video of the garage blaze.

Also, the debate about the future of the Mohawk Theater in North Adams has been put on hold, as the City Council seeks clarity  on what handing over control of the building would mean.

Please remember to check in throughout the day at, where you can find articles like these:

A MIGHTY WIND: Trees down. Roofs off. Debris everywhere. Here's what it looked like in Berkshire County after Monday's windstorm.

A REALLY RAIL FEEL: Participants in the Berkshire Flyer working group have completed their work and plan to release a 40-page draft plan during a public event Friday afternoon at the Intermodal Transportation Center in Pittsfield.

ONE RAD GRAD: This Miss Hall's School alumna just did something very special for  the school that helped make her who she is today.

ENTER THE POLL VAULT: Every day, The Eagle brings you a fun and unscientific poll. Find them on The Eagle homepage.

Very best,
