Thursday, 7 Nov 2019 - The recent tumult in Southern Berkshire is clearly a failure of leadership on more than one level.
Tuesday, 20 Aug 2019 - The proclamation was not a call to action. It was simply a statement of the values of the town of West Stockbridge.
Thursday, 18 Jul 2019 - Surely the most important question now on the local level is how to manage the siting and operations of the shops and cultivation facilities.
Saturday, 27 Apr 2019 - Clearly there needs to be some out-of-the-box thinking if public education in Berkshire County is to secure its future and thrive.
Tuesday, 19 Sep 2017 - The prohibitions and penalties in the Israel Anti-Boycott Act that Congressman Neal is sponsoring sound like a glaring departure from the American tradition of free speech.
Saturday, 12 Aug 2017 - Attracting young people and families with children in far greater numbers to the Berkshires is complicated — perhaps even impossible. So we are left with making our schools more viable with fewer resources.

Wednesday, 4 May 2016 - We would prefer that those choosing to comment on The Edge would be willing to -- as they say -- "own" their viewpoints and observations by identifying themselves, much as they would at a New England town meeting.
Monday, 3 Aug 2015 - Any time a state agency performs such an abrupt about face, it’s reasonable to suspect the presence of an unseen actor. Who got to the DEP? Consider this: the Log Homes site has another neighbor, the Housatonic River, which as we all know is the special responsibility of a certain Fortune 500 corporation.
Thursday, 30 Oct 2014 - If Great Barrington is to have a future as good as its past, it must embrace the new industries that are springing up, and the new people who are coming to town to participate in them.
