Bosley pushes for lockup facility

“It was mentioned that Bowler has law enforcement experience, he’s NOT a politician.” That is precisely why we need Dan Bosley as Sheriff. We need a person that knows his way around Boston politics and in case you are not aware of it, that is where the money to run the jail comes from. If Sheriff Massimiano wasn’t a good politician the new jail may have never been built. He did a great job in pulling the right strings to get the money for the jail and it’s increased and well trained staff. If the position of sheriff was a law enforcement job then Bowler would be the choice, but that is not the case. When was the last time you saw the sheriff make an arrest in Massachusetts, make a traffic stop or investigate a crime? Never. The position of sheriff runs the jail and that is an administrative job. This election shouldn’t be about whether or not you like one candidate or the other, it should be about who will be able to do the best job for the county. And that would be Dan Bosley.  (Jul 21, 2010 | post #25)

State details rail trail expansion plan

As mentioned by "Tipper" the state has money to spend on recreation. Would you want it here in our area or spent in the Boston area? Granted there are many projects that should be funded before the rail trail but the money is earmarked for this project only, so it will come to Northern Berkshire or somewhere else. The Aschuwillticook Rail Trail is a pleasant place to walk, ride a bike or roller skate, as for dog poo I have not seen any and for those that do are probably the ones creating it.  (Apr 28, 2010 | post #7)

City library goes as far as needed to recover overdue mat...

Borrowing a book from the library and not returning it is stealing. Go to a book store and try to leave with a book without paying for it and find out what happens. The library has to pay for the books they allow us to borrow with the expectation that it will be returned so that someone else will be able to borrow it.  (Apr 25, 2010 | post #9)

Butt out, Al

In case you haven't noticed, just about everything you own is made in China or some other third world country. Check out products from Orvis, L.L.Bean, Lands End, etc and you will find that "Made in China" is on the label. Problem is if it was made in America the price would be higher and the quality lower thanks to the greedy unions.  (Apr 16, 2010 | post #20)

Mezze owner reprimanded by Williamstown Selectmen

Sounds like a threat to me. That is worse than serving the miner. Besides, it sounds like he is more concerned with his daughter being served than her drinking illegally.  (Apr 14, 2010 | post #10)

North Adams-Williamstown bike path plans moving

Those of you that are against spending 12 to 15 million dollars for a bike path between North Adams and Williamstown are very right. Why should the state or feds spend that much money in Northern Berkshire where it isn't wanted. That money and much more should go to Boston where it will be tripled and appreciated. We out here are just a bunch of dummies that don't want or need any of the money that is floating around.  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #33)

RMV tacks on new $5 fee

The retesting at 75 could mean that your doctor has to sign off on it. Yeah, Right. They won't do it because if you go out and have an accident then their licenses will be on the line.  (Mar 3, 2010 | post #20)

RMV tacks on new $5 fee

Let's see, $5.00 to ask a question, $5.00 for an answer or $10.00 if you want the correct answer. Now if you have a computer, no fees. If you don't have a computer, see above. Bottom line, close the registries and put good people out of work. That is the Taxachusetts way.  (Mar 2, 2010 | post #9)

Sewer user fee is back on table

The problem with sewer user fees is that you pay for the out flow at the same rate that you pay for the inflow. So, if you wash your car or water the lawn you get to pay for the the water that goes in the ground or down the street as though it went into the sewer.  (Jan 29, 2010 | post #33)

Dotties in Pittsfield eyes Cup and Saucer

I’m all for a coffee shop or deli on the corner, but it would be nice if it were reasonably priced. The “Bean” was such a place. Good food at reasonable prices that made it a local hangout. A place that locals could get together and kibitz about anything. It was a place to meet and make friends.  (Jan 17, 2010 | post #13)
