The Berkshire Edge-On – Air Wednesday January 9, 2019

The Berkshire Edge LLC is a locally owned, regional publication. Our goal is to provide – regularly and in depth – content that truly reflects the life, interests and aspirations of this unusually rich and vibrant community.

Guided by respected journalistic standards, the principle of fairness, the quest for truth, a commitment to social, economic and environmental justice, and an abiding admiration for the independent spirit of the Berkshires, The Berkshire Edge offers in-depth local news reports and features, perspectives on the arts, wide-ranging commentary, and a comprehensive calendar of events – all written, illustrated, and, in some cases performed, with wit, intelligence, insight and humor.

This week we talk about:

1. ICE agents seize immigrant worker on Main Street in Great Barrington, in front of audience at the Fuel Coffee Shop:

2.  On Friday, Great Barrington’s first recreational marijuana retail “pot shop” will open:

Some will rejoice, but others urge caution, as in the case of our writer Sheela Clary:
