north adams housing screws local families in need. takeing section 8 applications from are community should be its first priority.Instead residents from Holyoke, Springfield get dibs for housing instead.

ship all the bums back where they came from.mike deep rounds all these bums up telling them they will get section 8 if they move in his apartments. and of course they get it before the ones that live in north adams.

Back in the day, a "Section 8" discharge from military service was founded upon a psychological dysfunction.

Any connection here?

I just don't get why are young males and females in their early 20s signing up section 8. Let them work just like the rest of us..I couldnt believe the people signing up for it...It burn my butt when someone out of town come get section 8 here while someone lives in north adams all their lives who looses there job have to wait 2 year to get on it .whats wrong with this picture?..too me there is to many hand outs give it to the people who really needs it not the one who sit on their butts all day and don't do nothing who helps themself.

yea i went down there and it was not pretty 95 percent of the people that were there were from Springfield, Holyoke, Chicopee. One woman told me that it was the housing authority in Holyoke that in formed her that North Adams Housing authority was doing their yearly Section 8 sign up. We have homeless mothers and their children here in North Adams that desperately need section 8 and this is what happens !! how can this happen to our community. North Adams cant take care of their own people. I walked out !

Im not trying to be rude there are people like myself in their 40's who work and have children to support my rent is 675 per month. I've worked my whole life and probably will till the day I die I only take home 1,120 a month...no food stamps no mass health. a little help would be nice, for the real people that need real help.

The magic number for a family of three is $36,500.You could get food stamps and mass health.I don't mind seeing my tax money help someone who works but these single moms are leaches.Let them collect from the bums they so willingly throw themselve at and breed with or let their family take care of them.

Remember Jamestown settlement? Until Smith instituted the "No work, no eat" policy, many of the settlers shirked working to provide for the necessities of their own survival, preferring instead to scour the surrounding lands in search of the fabled gold and silver -- that they never found. Many died.

Through no fault of their own, many today find themselves in need of assistance. Still others will search out every freebie before putting forth real effort to help themselves.

There will ALWAYS BE THOSE WHO TRY TO GAME THE SYSTEM.

Pulling out of this mess will be unavoidably painful. The long term solution is first regaining control of our money from the international banksters and then a return to a production economy.

There can be no other way. There is no prosperity in being a "service economy" with the fast mounting debt of our negative balance of trade.

before mayor barrett this city was high crime? are you kidding me? this city was certainly not high crime 30 years ago. I did not fear for my children the way I do for my grandchildren now.
don't get me wrong, I do not blame barrett for the increase in crime that has happened along the way. others bear some responsibility for that in my book. but I completely disagree with your belief that it was gang central here 30 years ago. and I was here, and an adult raising children at that point so I think I would have been aware of it.

Odd to me that a homeless shelter allows a computer to be used for things like this. For children to do homework or for some other purpose that will aid the family, it's fine. Time spent posting to a site like this seems a waste of both time and resources. Good luck in moving your family to a home of your own. You deserve that and hopefully the system won't fail you.

Crime is already on the rise and these dirtbags were only here to sign up for Section 8. Armed home invasion and a bomb scare both on the same day as the sign up. Wait until they actually move here.

We are ALL of us soon to be tested.

There is an imminent collapse of the U.S. Dollar. Soon -- like within the year -- we will see times in this country that will make the Great Depression seem like a cake walk. This is not my own opinion, but the projections of economic observers far better informed than I. It will come to a head with the demise of the European Union and, with it, the demise of its common currency the Euro. Projections are that the United States Dollar will follow within three weeks.

Forewarned is forearmed. My hope is that those with ears who may hear will do what needs doing to protect themselves and their families.
