The Greeting

Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019

Good day unto you, Berkshire County. Today there's news on the lineup for Tanglewood's new Linde Center, and an explainer on who's behind the splash of television ads calling for U.S. Rep. Richard Neal to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington spoke before the local chapter of the NAACP, highlighting her work with legislators to bring in new funding to combat violence against women and the opioid epidemic.

There's also these other top headlines:

NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT: The chairman of the Stockbridge Select Board assures residents that they are in good hands with the existing Fire Department; 12 members recently resigned after the termination of their former boss, who is also a Select Board member.

FM LISTENERS, REJOICE: WBRK launches a new station on the FM dial.

THE TAXMAN KNOCKETH, AGAIN: The owners of the Berkshire Mall have fallen into tax arrears for about $700,000.

YOU CAN'T MISS IT: When in Great Barrington, if you're trying to find the new Fiddleheads Grille, just look for the smurfy blue building.

When public officials aren't held to account, it can be like a kid with their parents' credit card. Thankfully, we're here to make sure that doesn't happen. Don't starve the watchdog. Subscribe today.

Very best,
