Thought of the day

“In the future everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” — ANDY WARHOL, American pop artist (1928-1987)

The Greeting

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Good morning, people of Western Massachusetts! It's a brand new day!  And what better way to start that day, than with a gaggle of news stories? Let's begin ...

In Great Barrington, town leaders and petitioners discussed where to place a statue of W.E.B. Du Bois, the town's most famous son. So far, no consensus.

In Pittsfield, a city panel has recommended $581,000 in community preservation spending on a number of projects, including pickleball.

In Lenox, we have a pair of stories: Three residents are vying for a soon-to-be vacant Select Board seat, and a preschool is looking for a new home

In Clarksburg, the wheels of change are beginning to roll, as the town further explores the possibility of shared school services with Stamford, Vt., a rural town right over the border.

In Williamstown, work on the new police station is underway, with a July opening planned.

And for those of you traveling east on the Massachusetts Turnpike this week, expect bridge repair delays in a few spots.

Please enjoy these other top headlines ...

WILLIAMSTOWN WEED: Silver Therapeutics opens Wednesday, the first cannabis shop to do so in Northern Berkshire.

BACK TO NORMAL: Commerce gets back into its groove at area Stop & Shops, which were reeling from 11 days of union worker picketing.

GOOD THINGS COME IN THREES: The Ted Rosenthal Trio returns to Pittsfield this weekend for some slick jazz.
