Good morning, readers. Today is that middle-of-the-week-camel-day that I hesitate to mention. The important part is that we're halfway there ... to Friday, I mean.
Here's the news of the day:
No sooner than two Southern Berkshire communities began urging their leaders to address problems with speeding in their towns did someone get struck by a car in Great Barrington.
Meanwhile, in Richmond, the state transportation agency is responding to calls for action after two recent traffic fatalities there.
Mass still is on in Lanesborough at the St. Mary chapel, which will be getting a priest on loan from a sister church.
