Good morning to America's Premier Cultural Resort,
We have another newsy edition of TheBeat for you, beginning with our top story: Us! That's right. The Associated Press recently sent a reporter and photographer to South Church Street to find out the hows and whys of The Eagle's continuing mission to keep local journalism alive and thriving. You can read about it (and see a video) here.
We also have a followup on the fatal accident that has landed Joe Thompson, the executive director of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, before a judge. The Eagle was in the courtroom for his arraignment Wednesday.
The Mohawk Trail Woodlands Partnership now can begin its work in earnest, after signing up 11 participating communities in the region. Critics see it as a government ploy to get access to private forestlands.
Herberg Middle School staff and administration will be working throughout the next few months to put a $900,000 grant to the best uses possible: improving scholarship at the school.
The Berkshire Food Co-op has opened in some fancy new digs in Great Barrington, not far from its previous location.
And a Berkshires recovery center will be able to add more staff and offer more services now with the receipt of $400,000 from the state.
These are the stories you want; with digital The Eagle, you can get them when you want, too. Subscribe today.
