Thought of the day

“If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.” — MOSHE DAYAN (1915-1981)

The Greeting

Monday, May 20, 2019

Good morning, people of the hills. This week, the region ushers in some warmer temperatures, which means good things for local gardeners looking to plant or harden off their spring vegetable crops.

In teamwork news, a pair of longtime civil servants took their battle with ALS public in an effort to help people stricken with the debilitating disease in the future. Their fundraiser over the weekend brought in $52,000, more than twice organizers' original goal.

Meanwhile, a judge will decide this week if a local contractor can change his plea to innocent in a case of the alleged defrauding of Greylock Federal Credit Union.

First it was a llama on the lam, and now it's horses: For the Lenox Police Department, corraling wayward farm animals is all part of the job.

Over the weekend, 174 tweens and early teens from Boys & Girls Clubs across the Northeast gathered in the Berkshires' club for a Torch Club summit. At the event, the kids attended leadership seminars, played sports and learned how to deal with stress.

In Pittsfield, Eaton Lane — a private road — is a mess, and a city panel is in favor of giving the residents there a reprieve.

The Eagle also sent photographers to proms in Lenox, for BART and McCann Tech, and we also staffed commencement ceremonies at Simon's Rock and MCLA.

The Snap

Lenox Memorial High School held its 2019 prom at the Lenox Club on Saturday. A crowd gathered outside the club an hour early to get prime spots to view the promenade. The Lenox Club was founded in 1864 and later moved to the current site, a house built in the 1860s.
