Good day, people of the 413. It's nearly the end of May, which means our Berkshire spring should be starting any day now.
Meanwhile, the Berkshire district attorney spoke Tuesday to update the public and press on the state of the investigation into a murder-suicide case in Sheffield. Among the few details released is that the DA's office has ruled out an assailant other than Luke Karpinski, the deceased father, husband and prime suspect.
In Pittsfield, a pair of pedestrians suffered minor injuries in two separate car accidents over the weekend.
Also in Pittsfield, the mayor's plan to rehab the exteriors of rundown city homes now is moving into the hands of a working group.
In Great Barrington, roadway work is underway, causing pain now but hopefully easing downtown congestion when complete.
And to the north in Williamstown, two families will have new Habitat for Humanity homes in about a year's time.
