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.

1. It’s town meeting time… our first report is about Great Barrington, held in the parking lot of the high school:

2. Meanwhile in Sheffield, voters at the town meeting decided to limit the number of outdoor marijuana cultivation sites:https://theberkshireedge.com/sheffield-votes-to-limit-outdoor-marijuana-farms/

3.  Update from Tanglewood: The good news is that the number of available tickets to Tanglewood concerts doubles on June 21; the bad news is that James Taylor won’t be performing his annual Berkshire concert this year… Taylor fans will have to wait until 2022:

4.  Meanwhile, in West Stockbridge a proposed concert venue and a restaurant are in a stand-off over access during performances… it’s gotten quite vitriolic … but a resolution may have been reached:
