Dearest Berkshires, today is Friday. Make sure not to fry in the swelter this weekend. Stay hydrated; stick to shady and cool places; and watch family and friends for signs of heat stroke. If you or a friend need it, cooling centers will be open across the county in an effort to keep residents cool during this weekend's heat spell.
And now, to the news ...
