Thought of the day

“Originality does not consist in saying what no one has ever said before, but in saying exactly what you think yourself.” — JAMES STEPHENS, Irish poet and novelist (1882-1950)

The Greeting

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

Hello, Berkshires, and welcome to your Tuesday. Tuesdays is very much like Monday, except it has one thing going for it: There's fewer days between us and the weekend.

In the news, the Pittsfield Police Department has hired its first Latina officer, and for her it's a dream come true.

The Berkshire Theatre Group is going to be staging "Shrek." Its version of the play is updated and contains no perjorative slang for transgender people, unlike an earlier version of the play that was performed in Lenox.

A Great Barrington police officer has pleaded not guilty to driving while under the influence of alcohol.

For those of you hoping to be riding on an expanded bike path in the north county sooner than later, you might as well make yourselves comfortable, because it's being pushed back to 2020.

The Eagle Mill in Lee just landed $6 million in tax credits, as the site owners move forward with its redevelopment.

Private employers soon will begin to pay into the fund that supports the state's Paid Family and Medical Leave Act.

And  brace yourselves: The owner of the Berkshire Mall is late with his tax payments again.

The Snap

A woman sits on a rock face at the summit of Mount Greylock overlooking the town of Adams on Monday. The road opened this weekend, and the lodge is open on weekends through beginning of June when it will open fully for the season. With temperatures reaching nearly 80 in the valley, the temps were about 10 degrees cooler at the summit with windy conditions.
The clouds float by an otherwise bright blue sky at the war memorial monument on Mount Greylock in Adams, which opened for the season this weekend.
