Thought of the day

“Life is like a game of poker: If you don’t put any in the pot, there won’t be any to take out.” — JACKIE “MOMS” MABLEY (1894-1975)

The Greeting

Thursday, May 23, 2019

Good day, Berkshire County. Today is Thursday. In college, it was known as Thirsty Thursday. To my faithful readers, I say this: All things in moderation, my friends. Except for a few brief moments on Thursdays.

Our top story focuses on Superior Court, where a woman recently charged in a homicide case now finds herself no longer under indictment on murder charges. Meanwhile, Carey Pilot remains held on bail on an open drug trafficking and weapons case, and prosecutors said they will resubmit the case to a grand jury in an attempt to get a new indictment.

We also have more on the Pittsfield builder who's waiting to hear from a federal judge about his level of culpability in a massive fraud scheme that targeted Greylock Federal.

Remember Peter's Choo Choo? Me neither. But lots of local folks do, and those who don't know (like me) can find out here.

In Williamstown, residents have OK'd a bylaw change that will make building a "granny flat" in town that much easier.

And this just in from our Fin, Fang, Feather and Fur Desk: The domesticated emu that was running amok in North Adams finally wandered home after stymying his would-be captors for the better part of a few days.

It's almost summertime. Get The Eagle (comes complete with a great, new calendar feature) and you'll know what's happening in the county. Subscribe today. 

Very best,

Noah Hoffenberg,
Berkshire Eagle online editor
