Harry's on Wahconah Street is a 15 minute drive from the Ralph Flori Senior Center? Are all the Eagle's reporters on drugs?

The B-Eagle's hype on North Street is all PROPAGANDA! The downtown is still dead! It is still a place for people with choices to AVOID! KB Toys closed its doors, BHS laid off 130 of its staff members, and there are no jobs around the retail market places. Tourism last about 4 to 6 months a year. Spice went bankrupt and closed during the winter months. Mayor Jimmy Ruberto never invested one red cent of his own money into Pittsfield, as he still lives in his late-mother's home. Yet, he redistributes tax and non-profit dollars to North Street year after year after year. North Street's revitalization is hurting Pittsfield, and it is all PROPAGANDA to boot!

Won't that be nice! Whomever owns mission is alright in my book. That place is a blast, makes me think I'm in another town for a while when I go there. The customers seem happy, the employees are polite, it's just an all around fun time every time I go there.

So if they open a little market, all the better for Pittsfield, they seem to have a handle on making pleasant environments.

I am not an English teacher but I do have a drivers license. Whomever or whoever or whatever....are all equally applicable in this situation. Since this is topix you have poetic license and may choose to speak as you wish. Having said that, your overall sentence structure is an unmitigated disaster and your overuse of punctuation is appalling to the naked eye. Try to use more adverbs and adjectives to spice up your story. If you notice the Berkshire Eagle does this very well in an attempt to create a story where none actually exists.
My recommendation is that you read the Eagle everyday noticing how they choose topics, form sentences and use punctuation. Then do the complete opposite and you will be fine.

Upper North St. is any thing past Columbus Ave. Such as Ad lib is part of Upper North St. or any part of the street which is frequented by a near-do-well on a invalid chair rolling down the sidewalk. That would be a 5 minute walk to The Market or 9 minutes on the invalid chair. The real story here is that local produce is being featured!

The two letters to the editor weren't mine, I just posted a response in topix that was about four sentences long.
