Mike Therrien and his pit crew successfully conquered Bosquet Mt. in Pittsfield Saturday, March 3rd. His Tower 4 themed sled won the 7th Annual Lazer 99.3 & 98.5 Cardboard Carnival powered by Coors Light in a time of 12.76 seconds. The run was so fast, it powered through the slow down area and into the haybales at the far end. The sled took some minor front end damage as a result but the crew will get it squared away in time for another event at Jiminy Peak in two weeks and the Mt. Snow Bud Light Duct Tape Derby at the end of the month. Check out the video of the run and a few pics below.

ADAMS — Around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, three Adams police cruisers — one playing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" — and Adams Fire Department Engine 2, pulled up to 13 Cherry St. ready to play Santa's helpers.
The seven police officers and two firefighters, wearing Santa hats, exited their vehicles carrying presents for three young brothers, who otherwise might not get any next Sunday, Dec. 25.
"I'm just happy we can put a smile on their faces," said firefighter Mike Therrien. Paula Fachini fought back tears of joy, smiling as the men in full uniform put gift after gift under the family Christmas tree.
"Mommy, Santa's here," exclaimed three-year-old Chase Woods, as brothers Dominic Woods, 10 months, Alex Messer, 10, looked on.
The scene also played out in North Adams on Saturday with first responders in five other North Berkshire communities this month also participating in the special deliveries of an enhanced Holiday Elf Warm Clothing Program by the Berkshire Community Action Council.
"It's good to get up close and personal with the families," said Adams Police Officer Greg Onorato.
