"But while I'm looking forward to delivering my update on the state of our city and sharing my vision for the coming year, I want to put safety first and not bring people out at the height of what promises to be a

11:47AM / Monday, January 28, 2019

First it snowed. Then it got warm. Then it rained a lot. Then it got cold. And now it's going to snow again — likely a significant amount, especially in the northern Berkshires.


The National Weather Service on Monday morning issued a winter storm watch from 1 p.m. Tuesday to 7 a.m. Wednesday for the greater region. Snow should start Tuesday afternoon, become steady by Tuesday evening, get heavier overnight and end by daybreak Wednesday.

04:02AM / Monday, January 28, 2019

Marilyn Gomeau cuts the cake at a reception for her retirement on Thursday. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — For a few days, the city sort of had two clerks — one settling into a three-year term and one transitioning out after just over 15 years in the post.    On Monday, there would only be one and there was a little apprehension about this new chapter for both of them.    "It's a little scary," said City Clerk Marilyn Gomeau on Thursday as she wrapped up her career at City Hall. "I think it's going to be good. ... I'm not a person who likes to stay home all day but I'm sure I'll find enough to keep me busy."   Deborah

When GE employed some 10,000 people, the lines for the credit union were long. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Catherine Maloney's co-worker was frantically trying to ask her something.   She had just gotten into work at the credit union and didn't understand him at first and then realized that he had forgotten the alarm code.   Time ran out. Police were on the way. He put his hands on his head and walked out front of the branch to confront the police arriving with guns drawn.
