PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Adam Hinds, candidate for the Democratic nomination for state Senate, set forth the following statement on education priorities:

I come from a family of educators. My father was a public school teacher and my mother a librarian in the public high school I attended. Public education prepared me for the world, and I am running for state Senate to protect that opportunity for every child in the district.

10:05AM / Sunday, July 03, 2016

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Art Gallery at Bagels Too, 166 North St., for the month of July, will be showing the most recent series of artworks by beloved and powerful Berkshire artist Anne Pasko of Lanesborough.

Last summer, Pasko was diagnosed with and told she had inoperable pancreatic cancer. After her immediate shock, disbelief and despair, her feelings drove her into her studio to experience, express, work through and, ultimately, emerge as herself with new depths from the life-altering digression she was now enmeshed in.

As her feelings surfaced, she created collages to make them visible, one by one, for herself, the people most closely surrounding her, others who have gone or are
