Good morning, Berkshires. Today, I'm opening up the news floodgates, because there are just too many local stories to hold back.
In Sheffield, the Karpinski-Wilbur family is buried, with still many details yet to be released by the Berkshire District Attorney's Office as it investigates the apparent murder-suicide from March 12.
In Pittsfield, a man is arrested on charges of assault with a BB gun.
In Great Barrington, a new development has passed muster with town officials, but the same can't be said for neighbors to the proposed Highfield on Main project by TOPA Enterprises; a 200-year old maple tree on the site will be preserved.
In Richmond, a motor vehicle collision injures two drivers.
And Clarksburg and Stamford, Vt., have embarked on a journey that could end in school district consolidation that crosses state lines.
Please dig into these other fine stories ...
