Before anyone assumes the worst, he has done nothing wrong. New board members are trying to get rid of him to run the club themselves. If they succeed it will be bad news for the kids of Pittsfield.

Yes, lets not assume the worst just because the executive director is placed on paid leave of absence from an organization and the club's board declines to discuss the circumstances surrounding the move. I can't understand why anyone would be suspicious. After all this is Pittsfield.

Why is it necessary to speak in a negative way when it is not really known yet what has gone on with this situation? Let's not begin a kangaroo court before all the facts are known.

Just because the club's board has declined to discuss whatever the issue is, that doesn't really explain why Mr. Bell doesn't discuss whatever the issue is, does it? I'm sure executive directors get put on paid leave of absence for good reasons. There could be a perfectly innocent reason.

So I guess people should not think the worst just because Pittsfield has a history of rumors like an alleged fraud in the water department that did or didn't happen, and the cop misfit brother of the Planut who did or didn't blow his brains out to avoid criminal prosecution on alleged sex crimes, or the case of Mr. Sticky Fingers who did or didn't help himself to an undisclosed number of accounts of an undisclosed amount of money that wasn't his, or the mysterious unsolved case of the missing $9000 from PHS, or the just as mysterious case of the "missing" Yon signs, or whether or not a long time former sheriff is guilty of especially unsavory behavior, or how many of Pittsfield's illustrious pillars knew about the immoral criminal appetite for young yummy underage boys by of one of their fellow illustrious pillars. Or the fact that Pittsfield has a former mayor who holds the title of least ethical contemporary mayor. I really can't even imagine why anyone would think the worst.

It is true. It is not fair. He might have threatened to blow the whistle on somebody else and they took extreme measures. Like you say...this is Pittsfield. They will crucify any perceived threat. Give the guy a break...it is not fair to accuse with no edvidence at all except that a few hot shots (maybe just one who controls that board) did not like him.

Is the PlaNUT suggesting that, but for the fact that a former long time Boys and Girls Club employee was unceremoniously let go from his job he wouldn't have been up on a ladder which ultimately let to his untimely demise? I really don't know what the PlaNUT is suggesting, so I'm asking. But on the more resent rumors, innuendo, and/or speculation of an alleged scandal, if that's even what it is, taking place at the Boys and Girls club, I thought ALL the golden jobs in the city of Pittsfield have always gone to the most deserving pillars, with connections of course. And that its an absolute long time tradition in Pittsfield with no end in sight.

So what exactly is the PlaNUT actually alluding too? And has the "new" executive director, from Conn., who knows how much is, alike or unlike, the "old" executive director, slid any of his family members or closest cronies, dysfunctional or otherwise, into any "vacant" slots at the Boys & Girls club lately? Are there any near future plans for this?

Hey RETARD you can't go near the Boys & Girls club and DCF, DSS and the local law officials will see to that. There is no way you will be able to "beat" to the site of little boys and girls. Being a Pedophile and on a sexual deviant list is bad but being a RETARD with a small peenis that has never satisfied a woman is the icing on the cake.
