Hello, Berkshires: good day unto you, and to you an early wassail, too. There will be much activity this weekend for the Hoffenbergs of Ashfield, as we celebrate a birthday or two, and I also will get a chance to do some cycling with a longtime friend. Let Summer Extension 2.0 begin!
In the real news:
TYER FANS UNITE: Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer was flanked with super fans on the steps of City Hall on Thursday, during an event highlighting the city leaders and former officials who are backing her run for reelection.
AH, THE OPEN ROAD: Great Barrington officials will repave a troubled section of Lake Mansfield Road and keep it open as a one-way for the next several years instead of immediately closing it; of course, there's disagreement.
ANOTHER WITNESS FOLDS: The Berkshire District Attorney's Office has lost its second planned witness in the murder trial of Laquan Johnson.
A VERY PLEASANT EVENING: To celebrate the 90th anniversary of Mass Audubon's Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, a benefit raised about $32,000 to support science education in Berkshire County schools.
ON THE UP AND UP: Attendance is climbing at the 40th Apple Squeeze in Lenox, which was held this past weekend.
