Dearest Berkshire readers, I bid you a good morning. Here at Eagle HQ in sunny downtown Pittsfield, the halls are buzzing with fresh news. Speaking of buzz, I also saw a buzzard circling above our building this morning on South Church Street ... here's hoping that's no metaphor for the current fiscal year!
And in the news:
Two Southern Berkshire communities are urging their leaders to address problems with speeding in their towns; two recent traffic fatalities have added fuel to the concerns.
A Northern Berkshire man was arrested and charged with breaking and entering after he allegedly put raw chicken and its accompanying juice in the truck of a perceived rival.
In Pittsfield, Ward 5 and 6 City Council candidates shared their views with the public Monday night in a forum for voters.
A local man has been chosen to be the next leader of the Adams-Cheshire Regional School District.
And a Superior Court judge will allow a pair of defendants to have access to some of their alleged victim's records, but not all. One of those defendants is a Pittsfield Police officer.
