Happy Monday, Berkshires. Just like Patriots Nation, I'm nursing wounds today: a smashed right ankle, hip and knee after taking a tumble while out mountain biking Sunday. Truth be told, I wasn't even on the bike when I fell. I was scrambling up a boulder to get a good vantage point to shoot some video of my riding buddy, but instead slipped and fell backward off the 6-foot rock.
Nevertheless, I dragged my battered body from the woods to deliver the news today (yes, I am just that dedicated) ...
BOUNTY OF NEED IN BERKSHIRES: Volunteers for Berkshire Bounty are delivering thousands of pounds of food annually to county residents, but food insecurity only continues to grow as the organization aims to keep pace.
CHOOSING A MAYOR: Pittsfield voters will decide Tuesday if the door to their mayor's office should read "Melissa Mazzeo" or "Linda Tyer."
MILFOIL IN COURT: Will the Stockbridge Bowl be doused with herbicide or will the lake be manually raked? The matter has left the auspices of Town Hall and has landed in Superior Court.
HIGH COSTS: The cannabis industry is making money hand over fist, but it's also paying through the nose because of arcane laws.
LOOK TO THE SKIES!: No worries; it's not a bird or a plane. It's Clarence Fanto with a new weekly weather feature (it'll give you something to talk about when all other subjects fail you).
