For more than an hour, Alexander Blumin pointed to instances where the handwriting closely matched handwriting in others.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Two city gadflies wasted everyone's time on Thursday in a "shameless plug" when they accused Dennis Powell of falsifying nomination signatures for School Committee, according to Board of Registrar member William Barry.   Craig Gaetani, who is running for City Council at large, and resident Alexander Blumin filed objections to Powell's nomination papers.   The pair, who are both regular speakers during the City Council's open microphone period, accused Powell of having the same person write

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The City Council will consider putting a referendum on the ballot to ban the sale of recreational marijuana.   Local attorney William Barry put forth a petition to ban marijuana retail shops. However, he wrote it before the state had passed a reworked version of the law that requires such a measure to go to a citywide vote in communities that passed the question on the statewide ballot.    "I didn't want to have pot shops at Allendale Center, Berkshire Crossings, on North Street where I work. But, the law is the law," Barry told the City Council, changing his request from instead of asking for the council to ban it to putting a ban to a

Some of the local children got to try on the gear officers wear. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The blue lights started flashing, and a voice came over the cruiser's PA calling for backup.   And the three officers started laughing, as they stood outside of the vehicle. Because inside the vehicle, a group of city teens was having a good time.   In the back of the next cruiser in line, the police chief was showing another group of children a special set of handcuffs.   And all the while, sticky ice cream dripped down the hands of the more than 100 youth who came to the Common on Thursday.   The Police Department held its second annual Cones with a Cop program.
