Jay Leno read the police log from our local newspaper, the Daily Hampshire Gazette.  He remarked to Kevin Eubanks, “I think we’ve got the white trash trifecta here”– A Florence Road resident reported at 7:30 a.m. that someone had broken into his home overnight while he was out drinking with his dog in his sister’s parking lot, and stole his snow blower –

Pulitzer Prize winning author Tracy Kidder, Mountains Beyond Mountains, is holding a benefit concert for Haiti with local musicians in Shelburne Falls this weekend.  He lives in the nearby town of Williamsburg.

The horrible Mel Gibson’s horrible new movie “Edge of Darkness” was filmed locally and has scenes of Northampton’s Main Street and Court House, and a magnificent view of the Pioneer Valley from Mount Sugarloaf  just 15 minutes up 91 in Deerfield.
