It's almost October, Berkshire County. I can almost taste the holiday candy now.
My Monday at Eagle HQ began with me watching a couple pressmen get jumped by a pair of wayward raccoons. My co-workers were having a smoke at a back corner of our building, when the raccoons rounded the corner, running faster than escapees from a chain gang. Any Monday that begins with that kind of laughter bodes well for the rest of the week.
In the rest of the news:
PIKE EXIT TALK: Would-be neighbors of a new exit on the Massachusetts Turnpike weigh in, and others will have a chance to do the same, too.
TAJIKI LANGUAGE LEARNER: Lenox Memorial High School senior Julie Monteleone recently traveled to Tajikistan on a State Department scholarship, along with 11 other American students.
ARREST MADE IN HOMICIDE CASE: An Adams man is under arrest on suspicion of involvement in the shooting death of a New York woman in a car in Pittsfield in August.
DISBELIEF OVER SUSPENSIONS: Some Berkshire drivers are grinding their gears over Registry of Motor Vehicles' paperwork and electronic mistakes that are leaving them stranded without legal transport.
WALKING MILES FOR THEIR BUDDIES: Friends and family hit the streets to help raise money and awareness for the Berkshire County Arc Down Syndrome Family Group.
LONGTIME PEACE OFFICER PASSES AWAY: John Morocco, a "cop's cop" and former commissioner of the North Adams Police Department, dies at 74.
