Letter: Recent Article on BRTA Cuts
Letter to the Editor,
03:30PM / Monday, July 30, 2018

To the Editor:

This past BRTA meeting was my first as a returning board member and it is very hard to see BRTA contending with the same basic problems there were when I left the board three years ago: lack of funding to cover its service area to meet the demand for more routes, evening and weekend service.

So much money from Berkshire County goes to fund eastern Massachusetts transportation and so little comes to BRTA, even after our Berkshire delegation has secured increased funding.

What we need to focus on now is making sure Berkshire County and Western Mass. have strong representation on the RTA Performance and Funding Task Force and that our unique transportation needs and

Letter: Police Union Endorses Caccaviello for District Attorney
Letter to the Editor,
03:00PM / Monday, July 30, 2018

To the Editor:

The IBPO Local 447 (Pittsfield Police Officers Union) and IBPO Local 447S (Pittsfield Police Superior Officers Union) formally endorse Paul Caccaviello for the office of Berkshire County district attorney.

There are a number of reasons for our endorsement with the most obvious being that his experience with the criminal justice system in Berkshire County and particularly the district attorney's office are unmatched by any of the other candidates seeking election. Many members of both unions have worked closely with DA Caccaviello for the past 25-plus years. He has worked as a prosecutor in the district court, Jury of Six, Berkshire Superior Court, and ultimately as the

Review: 'Lempicka' Beautifully Painted at Williamstown Theatre Festival
By Nancy Salz, Guest Column
01:20PM / Monday, July 30, 2018

For the first few minutes of "Lempicka," the stunning world premiere musical at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, the music level was so assaulting, I wanted to wave a white flag of surrender as happened – perhaps apocryphally – during an early performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. But very soon thereafter, either the music level was lowered, or I got used to it – and it was I who surrendered to this wonderful, beautifully realized musical. If you wear socks to "Lempicka," be prepared to have them knocked off.

The show is the story of a strong woman named Tamara de Lempicka (Eden Espinosa). She was an Art Deco painter who had two
