Dollyrots to Perform at Chameleons Nightclub Saturday Oct. 6

By Joe Durwin

Pittsfield, MASS- An L.A. act with unique ties to the area will return for its 7th show here in five years at Chameleons Nightclub on Saturday.

The Dollyrots, who first played Berkshire County at Dalton's American Legion just prior to their break onto the national scene after being featured in a commercial for Lowe's, have perhaps spent more time playing in the area than any west coast pop music group in recent years.

The band enjoys an unusual relationship with the city of Pittsfield in particular. Following their second Berkshire appearance in early 2008 at the ITAM, the band's singer Kelly Ogden,

Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. will open a new outpatient clinic located at 42 Summer Street in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The new location will offer medication-assisted treatment and counseling, beginning Tuesday, October 9, 2012. 

 

"There is a need in the treatment community, and Department of Public Health data shows that," said Kristin Nolan, Spectrum's director of outpatient services. "Local residents will no longer have to travel round trip as far away as Springfield and Holyoke on a daily basis to get treatment. That travel time is certainly a hindrance to an individual trying to integrate back into being a productive member of the

Crowd at August 2011 3rd Thursday


By Joe Durwin

Pittsfield, MASS- North Street shopkeepers expressed a range of cautious
optimism to beaming enthusiasm as they prepared Wednesday for the city's
6th year of 3rd Thursday festivities to begin.

"Shopping or not shopping, they're coming downtown, they're checking things
out," said Michael Moore of Persnickety Toys, a co-sponsor of this month's
event, which is themed around local youth.  Moore, like other downtown
merchants, said even the customers who don't make purchases the night of
the event are more likely to return.

Moore  said he was pleased that the announced cancellation of this week's
kickoff had been reversed, as he was hoping

 America's second oldest theatre troupe performed admirably over the weekend in their first offering of 2012, in Craig Posposil's "Somewhere in Between."   Joshua Carty is hilarious and believable as the anxiety ridden protagonist Jasper, whose awkward journey through New York social life forms the core of the story.  
Other standouts include Anya Krawcheck and Todd Hamilton who reappear in several roles, from an oversexed couple to a fesity construction worker and panicking businessman.  Jon Slocum also shines as a homeless man who encounters Jasper, in a poignant scene that at first seems out of place in the oddball comedy, but ultimately ties the story

Jeffrey Ferrin's response to discussion that arose at the Feb. 15 City Council meeting in response to his appointment to the Ambulance Review Board
 I will say that I am amazed that this is even happening. Especially since I have made this information available ever since I ran against Mayor Bianchi in his first bid to be mayor. The mayor took the time to discuss these matters with me then and even before the appointment. So if he was willing to take the time to look at these issues and found that they were not an issue I am hopeful that the councilors will as well.   I will say that I was a little but not totally surprised that Jonathan Lothrup would do what he did that is how he operates. I would be more encouraged if this councilor took the time to see all the evidence and not just what was published I however
