As her feelings surfaced, she created collages to make them visible, one by one, for herself, the people most closely surrounding her, others who have gone or are

Nancy Shulman, Joseph Tournier, Maria Caccaviello and Jackie Shulman cut the ribbon on the new attraction.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The opening of the Berkshire Carousel on Friday morning wasn't about an amusement ride. It wasn't about art.

It was about the community coming together to improve their surroundings.

For more than a decade, hundreds of volunteers have put hours and hours of effort into handcarving and painting the 33-piece ride. Each horse and carriage features images of people from the community as well as areas and scenery of the county, and other unique designs.   It's the only handcrafted carousel to be built in Massachusetts in the last

Uh, well, more correctly, it's not at the hands of, but at the tentacles of, which of course is much scarier.
