Good day to you, Berkshire County. I was stuck again in my commute this morning in Pittsfield behind more giant concrete slabs and lane-hogging pace cars; I recently was informed by a former Pittsfield city councilor that those slabs come from a local business and they spell local jobs. By gum, he's right; it's something worth remembering as we race around from spot to spot on county roadways.
And now, the news:
FALL FOLIAGE TIME: The leaves are dropping again, which means it must be time for events galore in Northern Berkshire.
POWERFUL TESTIMONY: "So many things have been taken away. Some days, I can't walk. .... This man will be able to have a life again," says a victim in a drug-fueled crash that claimed the life of her fiance.
THE FRIEND ZONE ISN'T SO BAD: Richmond and West Stockbridge prep to take their relationship to the next level: shared services.
MISSING GIRL NOT MISSING: A female Rockwood Academy student in Lenox disappears in the 1970s; more recently, Pennsylvania State Police believe that some remains found on a riverbank might be the missing student; case lands in the lap of Framingham Police, who locate the missing student, alive and well today; and the search for an ID of "Beth Doe" continues for the Pennsylvania State Police. Yes, it's kind of confusing.
YOGA AMID THE STACKS: The Berkshire Athenaeum is offering a yoga series.
