Thought of the day

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." — William Faulkner, American author (1897-1962)

The Greeting

Friday, May 17, 2019

Hello, people of the 413. The news spigot still is flowing today, as we bring you another round of Berkshire County news.

"Bouilloire et Fruits," a masterpiece by French impressionist Paul Cezanne, was sold at auction for $59 million this week; it has gone through at least nine owners, one of whom was a Berkshire resident.

Third Thursday brought dozens of people to downtown Pittsfield Thursday afternoon and evening, but the event's kickoff for the year was marred when a man from Lenox ended up pinned beneath a pickup truck that had struck him.

The preservation of an early American home in Dalton is earning plaudits; the site was the home of some of the town's early African-American residents.

A suspect in a string of arson fires has been found not competent to be held criminally responsible; he'll be taken to a state hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

The North Adams Police Department finally has the green light to pursue some repair work for its roof. 

And the Foot Locker has joined the ranks of business that have loped off from the Berkshire Mall, where occupancy rates are circling the drain.

Stay tuned into what's happening today and every day, with the berkshireeagle.com. Order a digital+Sunday package for you and grandma ... she'll thank you for it.

Very best,

Noah Hoffenberg,
