Letter: Melissa Mazzeo for Mayor

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

We would give Ms. Mazzeo our vote for mayor of Pittsfield in a heartbeat!

She is an educated, intelligent woman, who researches issues before speaking about them.

In our opinion, if she had been told, by the state, that Pittsfield had to prove that the city could make some of its own money, she may have agreed to parking meters, but not those user-unfriendly kiosks.


Northampton, a much larger city than Pittsfield, has parking meters, but they are easy to use, all the person parking needs to do is insert quarters into the parking meter. If you are dining and seeing a movie, insert the number of quarters needed.

Here in Pittsfield, I see folks trying to find out how to operate the things.

I, along with many, refuse to use them and only venture downtown (upstreet) when the meters are not in operation.

Carla and Robert Skidmore
Pittsfield, Mass.

Hinsdale Man To Compete In Professional BBQ Competition

Community Submission

Rinaldi with Myron Mixon, celebrity chef and four-time barbecue World Champion.
HINSDALE, Mass. — Professional barbecue teams from all over New England will compete at the Harpoon BBQ Festival in Windsor, Vt., on July 27-28, with hopes of being crowned the grand champion and earning a ticket to the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue. 
 
And Berkshire County's own George Rinaldi will be among them.
 
Rinaldi, 54, of Hinsdale, has been competing on the professional Kansas City Barbecue Society-sanctioned circuit for eight years. He and his family travel to six or seven competitions annually. They've been all over New England, as well as in New Jersey, Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas. At a typical event, competitors must deliver their entries in four categories (chicken, ribs, pork and brisket) to the master judges by pre-specified times — and not a second later.
 
Rinaldi's skills have earned many trophies, including a first-place prize for his Ribs Division win at a recent competition in New Jersey.
