At Lake Onota Village, the residents are still reeling from losing three people to a mobile home fire. Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page has been set up for the victims' family.

The Berkshire district attorney has confirmed that there was "overwhelming evidence" that the murder-suicide in Sheffield last week was indeed carried out by Luke Karpinski. 

A W.E.B. Du Bois scholar will speak in Great Barrington, the town where the pivotal writer once lived.

And one of the past suggestions for Berkshire Mall re-use is now up for consideration: A marijuana chocolatier is interested in beginning cultivation and manufacturing there.

Please stop by and check out these other stories, too:

SELF-DEFENSE CLAIMED: The woman arrested for a stabbing is claiming that it was self defense; her boyfriend, the original victim, might be charged.
