Governor in Pittsfield For Rice Silk Mill Ribbon Cutting

Staff Reports
iBerkshires
Gov. Deval Patrick stops by the Rice Silk Mill in Pittsfield this afternoon for a ribbon-cutting and a message about Gateway Cities (of which Pittsfield is one). We were at the mill 10 months ago when developers were getting ready to turn the derelict building into sweet apartments. Can't wait to see the changes.


The Berkshire Eagle reports that at least two instances of alleged sexual abuse by Boy Scout leaders in the Berkshires were found in the thousands of pages of confidential files ordered open by the Oregon Supreme Court.


Looking for some bargains? The state's auctioning off some $435,000 in unclaimed property on eBay beginning Saturday and running through Dec. 22. Some of the items, including a diamond ring worth $17,000 and a 300-year-old brandy snifter were on display in Springfield. You can catch them today in Worcester (from noon to 5) or wait until they show up on eBay.


There's still time to nominate someone for the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition's Fall Neighborly awards. Call Annie at 413-663-7588 to nominate someone; the awards will be presented next Wednesday, Oct. 24.


The Boston Business Journal has a pretty "hot" map: it shows where in the state the millionaires cluster. Dark red indicates fewer than 100 residents per million-dollar earner. Not surprisingly, the Berkshire millionaires are cluster in South County and Williamstown.

What they're up to: North Adams City Councilor John Barrett III, former longtime mayor of the city, has been in Virginia with two Mass mayors campaigning against his least favorite governer, Mitt Romney.  Diana Bonneville, a social studies teacher in the Southern Berkshire Regional School District in 1990s and a master's graduate of MCLA, is in the running for principal of the South Hadley High School.
