The Berkshire Edge On-Air – Wednesday March 2, 2021

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.

1. So how can we concoct a news lineup without dealing with the COVID19 pandemic…
In Massachusetts, Gov. Charlie Baker relaxes COVID restrictions, and cites ‘vaccine equity’ for marginalized communities… some of his critics aren’t buying it.https://theberkshireedge.com/baker-eases-covid-restrictions-touts-vaccine-equity-program-for-marginalized-communities/

2.  In the meantime, Great Barrington received a grant for a recreational hiking path, allowing bikers and hikers to avoid using the U.S. 7 corridor:

3.  We’re already thinking about spring … with a feature about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and how CSA’s support local farmers:

4. An here’s a cheery note.. Our business writer Julia Dixon conducted a survey of Berkshire businesses, and found them optimistic about the prospects of the local economy, inspite of the pandemic:

5.  And the COVID slowdown has given composer David Edwards (and Edge music writer) an opportunity to put together his own music, offering royalty-free recordings to ballet dancers to use in their video performances. Edwards calls it his gift to the dance community:https://theberkshireedge.com/bits-bcc-virtual-massage-therapy-info-session-open-house-dorset-theatre-festival-announces-new-program-resident-artist/

6.  And finally, since the COVID regimen has meant we are staying home and spending more time cooking, our food columnist Bob Luhmann offers a recipe for Yankee shrimp and grits — a little taste of New Orleans… just the dish to melt away winter chill:https://theberkshireedge.com/yankee-shrimp-and-grits/
