PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Local environmentalists are taking a stand against air pollution from power plants that are hardly used.   A Berkshire Environmental Action Team campaign "Put Peakers in the Past" is demanding that the three peaking power plants located in Berkshire County revert to only renewable and clean alternatives.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Of all things that happened! Low and behold as I looked out on my back yard, what did I see roosting on my marble sculpture, but one very curious turkey vulture, apparently quite pleased about sitting on a large stone carving.   It brought to mind World War II, when the Third Reich launched its Operation Eagle Attack against Britain's air force.
