Letter: Downed Poles and Electrical Outage

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

We would like to thank the gentleman from National Grid who arrived shortly after downed poles and wires interrupted our electrical service for seven hours after the terrible wind storm Monday.

These men worked constantly in horrific conditions to restore our power. We were extremely worried because of medical conditions that require oxygen, but told one of the men and he said it would be a while; after seven hours of their extremely hard work, our power was back!


Thank you, so very much!

Completion of Lafayette Trail Celebrated in Hancock

By Andy McKeeveriBerkshires Staff

Hancock officials celebrate the designation recognizing the role the town had in history.
HANCOCK, Mass. — During the American Revolution, famed French general the Marquis de Lafayette played a significant role as an ally of the rebellious colonies.
 
So much so that President James Monroe invited him on a farewell tour of the nation in 1824, celebrating the country's 50th birthday.
 
Lafayette traveled all 24 of the United States, including going directly across the Berkshires on his way to Boston.
 
Now, the Berkshires have recognized his contributions by designating the trail he took from Hancock to Hinsdale on his way back Boston with an official designation as the Lafayette Trail.
