The Berkshire Edge On-Air – Wednesday March 25, 2020

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.

So this morning most of our leading stories about the consequences of the coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic:

5.  And in the midst of the crisis a coalition has emerged, an informal group of “do-gooders” engaging in a creative community initiatives to, among other things, provide masks for health care workers;

6. But we’re not all health emergency alerts.
