The Greeting

Friday, March 1, 2019

Happy Friday, Berkshires! For those of you who have the weekend off, congratulations! For all the weekend shifters out there, you have my condolences.

The weather people appear to be saying something about two different storms coming our way; we shall see.

Generation Z took the stage as headliners for The Eagle's latest Conversation Series event; our Amanda Drane reports back from Taconic High School.

A Sheffield man who rides motocross injured his spine recently in a crash but is vowing to walk again.

A suspect in the shooting death of Asiyanna Jones had a request for pretrial release denied.

Soldier On has a new chaplain, and he's a familiar face around town. Our Dick Lindsay talks with the man behind the collar.

And please don't miss these other daily reads:

FORMERLY ACTING: Jason Wood is now the official lieutenant of the North Adams Police Department, after holding the position on an interim basis.

MORE ARMS OF THE LAW: The Berkshire District Attorney's Office has hired a freelance lawyer to assist in closing out some homicide cases.

BIRDLAND EXPANDS: The parent company of The Berkshire Eagle has purchased the Southern Berkshire Shopper's Guide.

ONE BURLY BALLET: The dancers of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo pack a little bit more than average ballerinas into their leotards.

Very best,

Noah Hoffenberg,
Berkshire Eagle online editor
