Happy Preliminary Election Day to our Pittsfield friends! This time, you've got a mayor's race with four candidates, plus a passel of candidates for seats in Wards 5 and 6. We wish the candidates well! If you haven't figured out who's who in the races, make a pit stop over at our special preliminary election page (I built it special for you, Pittsfield voters and lookie-loos from neighboring towns).
And, of course, we have these other headlines, most of which you'll find no where else in the world (subscribe today!) ...
VERY BAD WRECK: Pittsfield first responders aided a motorist whose car collided with a tractor-trailer on West Housatonic Street on Monday afternoon; the motorist, a North Adams man, is in the ICU.
DEALING WITH EXPLOSIVE THREAT: A note about explosives at Family Dollar proved to be bogus, police say.
BOOSTED WITH CASH: A FEMA grant is going to help pay for needed upgrades at the Lee Fire Department.
ROCKWELL KIN NOT ROCKED: Lana Del Rey's latest album colorfully references the name of one of the Berkshires' best known painters, and his granddaughter doesn't mind.
KNIFE-WIELDER ARRESTED: A South Egremont man was arrested in the parking lot of Bogie's Restaurant & Pub after brandishing a knife, assaulting two people, and threatening to slit the owner's throat.
Listen to me now and believe me later: There is no better place to get the news in Berkshire County than The Berkshire Eagle. Not on TV. Not on the internet. And certainly not from Karen at the corner store. That's a fact. When you subscribe to The Eagle, you get loads of local stories every day of the week, and your subscription money directly goes toward keeping the county covered from Williamstown to Sandisfield and Florida to Mount Washington. Without you and your support, we simply cannot do what do.
