Good morning, Berkshires. Fall is in the air. Not so much that we need to put away our shorts for the season, but it's getting close.
In today's top news:
Bigg Daddy's, which not long ago heralded the coming of the Philly cheesesteak to Pittsfield, is closing.
A call came in to Pittsfield Police about kids trying to shoot each other with BB guns on the Common, but they didn't find any evidence of such activity.
Fire struck a home in Cheshire on Thursday, and residents escaped injury.
Also in Cheshire, the Select Board welcomed its two newest members, and assigned roles and responsibilities.
The driver who hit a skateboarder in a Great Barrington crosswalk will not face any charges.
And a lack of basic procedural documents has closed the case against a retired Pittsfield Police officer who allegedly used excessive force during a 2016 shoplifting arrest.
