Thought of the day

“The trouble with our age is all signposts and no destination.” — LOUIS KRONENBERGER, American author (1904-1980)

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Good morning, Berkshires. Today, I'm opening up the news floodgates, because there are just too many local stories to hold back.

Let's begin:

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 ...

LLAMA DRAMARAMA: Lenox Police helped corral Lorenzo, a loose llama, during the afternoon commute Sunday.

COP STOPPED FOR OUI: An off-duty Great Barrington police officer was stopped on the Massachusetts Turnpike and arrested for allegedly operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. 

THINK OPENLY, ACTING LOCALLY: This assistant professor from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst delivers a speech in which she said the civil rights movement has never ended, and that grassroots action is needed now.
