PITTSFIELD, Mass. — If Andrea Harrington wants to make the reforms to the criminal justice system that voters elected her to make, it is going to require the right team of staff members.   And that's what Harrington has been spending her last month or so looking to build. The district attorney-elect defeated incumbent Paul Caccaviello in the November election and since then has been focusing on finding people she believes in to take leadership roles in the next incarnation of the district attorney's office.   "The people who voted for me voted for me because they believed in the vision that I articulated. In order to enact that vision, we need to have the right

Grinnell is hugged by board Vice President Brian Miksic.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It's been a decade since Judith Grinnell floated the then-fantastical notion that the Hoosic River could be safely released from some of its concrete coffin.   A decade since she and her dedicated advocates inspired a "leap of faith" that joined community leaders and politicians, businesses and residents, recreational enthusiasts and ecologists.   A decade since Grinnell's vision has become a $30 million project ready to take its first steps to reality.    And after a decade, the Hoosic River Revival's founder says she's "walking away smiling.

@theMarket: The Market's Winter Storm
By Bill Schmick,
03:28PM / Friday, December 14, 2018
Stocks worldwide have experienced a downdraft since October. All the gains so painstakingly made thus far in 2018 have been erased. Volatility has battered markets with all the severity of a Nor'easter. Next year may prove to be a continuation of the same.   It is interesting that the culprits responsible for this change of heart in the markets have been around for just about all of the past year. Leading the list is Donald Trump. It was our president that decided to wage a trade war against the world. There has been little success in his battle thus far. The prospect of more of the same faces us well into the new year.   The Federal Reserve Bank can also take some blame.
