Letter: Mayor Should Demand Mass MoCA Restore Children's Work

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am so upset at what Mass Moca did to the beautiful work that the children did on the bridge pedestals. How dare they cover it over, it broke those children's hearts and upset a lot of people.

I myself am furious with it and the fact that our mayor won't stand up for the children. He should demand the work be redone by the MoCA artist. There are plenty of pictures they can use to restore them. It's horrible that they think they can just do whatever they want. They do not own those pedestals nor do they pay taxes.

I don't know where they get the idea they can just do something like that.

MCLA Women Win Home Opener

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- MCLA's Hannah Mazzeo recorded a double double of 13 points and 15 rebounds as the Trailblazer women's basketball team held off a charging Cobleskill team 53-52 Wednesday in non conference action.
 
Neither team could muster up much offense in the opening half of play, but MCLA held a slim 23-22 halftime advantage. MCLA (1-1) increased the margin to 41-36 after three quarters of play as Emily Burke canned a three and DiAsia Smith converted a layup at the horn.
 
The fourth quarter quickly saw Cobleskill (1-1) rally behind Anna Post.  She scored 10 straight points for the Tigers to take the lead at 47-46 with 6:22 left to play. MCLA would regain the lead quickly on a pair of Kylah Langston free throws. After the MCLA defense held Cobleskill without a point for the next five minutes, they would increase the lead to 53-47 with just 53 seconds left to play. After a Cobleskill timeout, Nylasia Sutton drilled a triple to slice the margin to 53-50.  
 
MCLA missed a pair of free throws giving Cobleskill a chance and when Sutton drove the lane and converted, it was just 53-53 in favor of MCLA with under 35 seconds to play. The Trailblazers held possession but missed a pair of shots giving the ball back to Cobleskill. The Fighting Tigers had a few chances late, but could not get off a quality shot and MCLA held on for the win.
