PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(ADD 3, 7-1-20 6:53 p.m.) — Massiamano died on Thursday June 25 at BMC. He then “resigned” from the Pittsfield Planning Board on June 26. No public word. Something extremely odd is going on there. THE PLANET personally informed Kevin Moran of the Eagle, to eliminate any excuse for them not to cover it. We shall be writing more on this for The Weekend Edition. Now that he is dead, perhaps some sources might be encouraged to come forward with what they know.

(ADD 2, 7-1-20 2:21 p.m.) — THE PLANET has confirmed the death of former Sheriff and local kingmaker Carmen Massimiano. We also heard that the funeral has already been conducted, though we haven’t confirmed that. If true, it would be extremely odd for such a public figure. There’s likely much more going on here. We are probing.

(ADD 1 7-1-20 1:54 p.m.) — THE PLANET has heard rumors and reports of Carmen Massimiano’s death. We have contacted a couple of sources who would have reason to know. They haven’t officially confirmed the information, but, based on what we know as of this moment, we believe the story to be true. Stay tuned.

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY JULY 1, 2020) — “Your head is huming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know.” On the island, EVERYTHING is heady.

Thus spake Robert Plant, who wanted us to jot down a few random thoughts during this early July idyll … idle … idol.

  • Reparations in the air? Reparations for what? For Whom? This nebulous and fictive deed asks that those who have never owned slaves hand over fortunes to those who have never been enslaved. Reparations? THE PLANET doesn’t think so.
  • As in nev-vah, for where and with whom does it end? The logical outcome is would be to pay everyone for everything.
  • BLM, ANTIFA, and those of similar ilk do not want equality. They want superiority. Not going to happen, at least as long as this is America.
  • Or has it become Amerika? We, in the midst of this national upchuck, are finding out. We’ll know much more the morning of Nov. 4.
  • THE PLANET‘s favorite example of irony, filed under “M” for “Most Recent,” is the BLM group who in their request for municipal permits to stage a “Defund the Police” rally …  asked for police to run security! Ka-lou-less.
  • Best president of our lifetime? Dwight Eisenhower, general, statesman, outsider, golfer, and mensch. Ike had four portraits hanging in the Oval Office: Washington, Jefferson, Grant, and Lee. He recognized Robert E.’s greatness. Worst? Tie among The Final Four: Johnson and Ford, Obama and Bush Lite.
  • What and Who is behind the foolish idea to use Taconic High School as a drive-in theater? Only $25 a carload? This raises a load of questions, none of which the city has answered. The school department and school committee refuse to comment.
  • “Go home, folks. Nothing to see there.” Pittsfield’s new motto.
  • Or how’s this for a new slogan: “DEFUND PUBLIC ‘EDUCATION.'” Style guide says the word “education” in all uses, on the bumper stickers and posters and the like, must be in quotes.
  • Cut $17 million from the school department. Give $9 million to lower tax rates. Split the other $4 million between the police and fire departments.
  • $17 million? Easy. Close two unneeded buildings, change the health insurance split from 85-15 to 55-45, and get ride of 1/3 of administrative positions. Savings? More than $20 million.
  • Speaking of Spawtz Pt. I: Bill Belichick continues to show why he is the G.O.A.T., any sport. He signs a Heisman winner, No. 1 pick, MVP, and Super Bowl QB at a fire-sale price. His name is Cam Newton, an electrifying talent. Through the draft, Belichick didn’t move on a signal caller. He played up Stidham and Hoyer, big. He then waited three months through free agency, making no moves. When it became clear he wouldn’t be bidding against anyone else, he springs! Gets Cam at a team-friendly price, a fierce competitor who has a lot to prove.
  • In Bill We Trust!
  • Speaking of Spawtz Pt. II: What used to be called Major League Baseball, now known as “klownball,” continues to show its contempt for fans and for the game itself in going ahead with a counterfeit “season” in the midst of a pandemic. The rule changes, coupled with the watered down play, have made the game unrecognizable. Death to MLB, players and owners.
  • How can Helen Moon and Dina Guiel-Lampiasi, both employed by the district attorney’s office, not be in a perpetual conflict of interest by also double-dipping on the city council? And by serving on the planning board, how is G-L not in double conflict?
  • Saw the Pittsfield DPW weed-whacking the curbs on outer East Street, at the bridge before you get to the former softball complex. The untouched weeds looks much better than the mess made by this half-assed effort. In evidence: “Workers” who just don’t give a spit about anything but their paychecks.
  • No oversight.
  • No supervision.
  • No accountability.
  • On the 65th anniversary of the tragic death of Heisman winner and Red Sox star Harry “The Golden Greek” Agganis, THE PLANET talked with the best two-sport athlete ever to come out of Pittsfield, Chuck Garivaltis (said with a nod to Ray Wojtkowski and Mark Belanger). Chuck told the story of how Boston University pulled out all stops to get him to sign with its football team. The pitch included the QB  himself, Harry Agganis. As most of you know, Chuck went on to a great baseball-football career at Colgate then signed with the NY-SF Giants. He’s still the greatest pure hitter ever to come out of Berkshire County, and there were some great ones. He was and still is one of the greatest political figures in city history.
  • Isn’t it great that Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski do not have to endure another Pittsfield Fourth of July parade?
  • Isn’t is awful that The Kapanskis have to endure endless private fireworks each night?
  • Isn’t the amount of gunfire being disguised by those same fireworks a source of wonder?
  • Spent rounds are rivaling cigarette butts, needles, lottery tickets, condoms, and fast-food wrappers as the detritus of choice for the “armies of the night.”
  • Helen Moon still has not apologized to Pittsfield police officer Darren Derby for the slam she laid on him during the recent budget hearings.

YOU SUPPLY THE CAPTION!

  • Helen Moon still has not apologized to councilor Earl Persip for what Persip called a racist insult.
  • Helen Moon still has not answered one request for comment sent her way by THE PLANET on vital city issues.
  • Helen Moon acts the full part of the entitled millennial and does it brilliantly.
  • Helen Moon has utter contempt for the average citizens not just in her ward (1) but also citywide. She has the stuff to be a great at-large councilor.
  • Helen Moon still has not revealed who’s pulling her strings.
  • Helen Moon splits infinitives.
  • Helen Moon has not been seen recently near PPD headquarters.
  • Helen Moon is in love with herself judging by her Facebook page.

    SHE IS A CITY COUNCILOR. SHE GETS TO VOTE. IN YOUR NAME. TELL US YOU’RE OK WItH THAT.

  • Helen Moon did not have “The Walking Dead” working on her campaign. Actually, some were still living. Same is true with more than a few of her “chums.” They, too, are rumored to be alive.
  • Scary, baby. Scary.
  • Helen Moon wants to tear down the Civil War statue in Park Square. The dude is a white male, outfitted with a militaristic uniform, holding the American flag, took orders from U.S. Grant, is not depicted with any minority, and lived before Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
  • Helen Moon is perpetually “offended.”
  • NASA has not gone back to the moon since the mid-70s. Pittsfield went back to the Moon in November 2019. THE PLANET isn’t sure which one is the greatest mystery.
  • When Helen Moon talks, Andrea Harrington cannot drink a glass of water.
  • When Helen Moon doesn’t talk, Andrea Harrington hydrates.
  • Helen Moon thinks a hack is a bad cough.
  • Helen Moon says she was once a nurse. That’s her picture to the right, the B&W one. Selfie.
  • Of course.
  • Helen Moon does what, exactly, in the district attorney’s office?
  • Helen Moon contributes what, exactly, during council deliberations?
  • Helen Moon thinks Dante is a character from the Sopranos.
  • Helen Moon think the Ninth Circle of Hell is an upscale, millennial, plant-based coffee shop.
  • Helen Moon thinks “The Exorcist” is a yoga instructor.
  • Helen Moon knows how much about The Popcorn Wagon? … O.B.

  • Helen Moon has done what, exactly, to improve the dreadful state of affairs in Benigno Numine?
  • Helen Moon [CHECK ONE] (    ) Does         (    ) Does not know the translation of Benigno Numine.

I agree Dan V. that the fireworks in Pittsfield are horrible. Loud booms continue in so many neighborhoods in this city. People just do not care about their neighbors. Neither do these liberals care about the environment since smoke filled neighborhoods from fireworks are everywhere in this city. They are so worried about global warming, but polluting the air with unhealthy chemicals from fireworks is not a problem for them.

We have all liberal politicians here in Pittsfield. If they care so much about the environment, they wouldn’t allow all the smoke and chemicals going into the air. The liberals in this area have the power to enforce the law since fireworks are illegal.

When the planet and I were young Pittsfield was the fireworks capital of Ma.M80s in the hands of 12 year olds.Some deep state Trump believers thinks its a conspiracy to un nerve BLM nationally…..If Councilor Moon cared about anything other than her 75k starting pay for made up position as a go fur it would be to protect the children who school on top of GEs chemical swamp….Moon as a nurse should be outraged she supports this.If she could get outside herself and see what these chemical d o to children no child would be educated there.

The first Joe Biden encounter with the media in a very long time showed the media at their very best behavior. Asking Joe Biden friendly questions like, “What keeps you up at night?” Similar to the questions the media used to ask of Obama such as, “What inspires you, what enchants you…..” No gotcha questions, no shouting, hostility, or interrupting from the media. Joe Biden was asked easy, non-confrontational questions by the media. Only a FOX reporter asked about Biden’s issues with confusion and Joe mumbled some strange reply and then said his mental abilities are constantly being tested by his doctors. Biden did seem confused several times during the questioning.

I watched the entire Hannity interview of President Trump and thought it was great. What intelligent American would even consider voting for Joe Biden with his very limited ability to communicate clearly? The presidency is a very difficult and demanding job even for someone much younger and I do not see Joe Biden as being capable of handling difficult foreign and domestic issues. Not to mention being able to stop the far left radicals from influencing him to pass the Green New Deal, get rid of police, take away gun rights, and make everyone dependent on big government.

Had Little Johnny at Clapp few days back. Mr. G is right. Track is a mess, and little more than a path in some areas. New restrooms and picnic tables blocking kids from sliding down north hill. Beautiful splash pad not working,hot as hell, beautiful basketball courts, brand new hoops and nets, screwed shut with 2 x 4s, but Black Lies Folk can protest at Park Square, and here’s the icing on the cake- old horse water trough, which sat for years untouched near park entrance, is now next to restrooms and is a standing water mosquito magnet, and next to that stands a headstone monument to park donors. Neither should be in that location and are graffiti magnets. And note to Mr. G – found several old trees on hill with writing including some violent and disturbing and disgusting words, and many old and overgrown carvings but nothing discernible with your name.

True enough, Johnny, I saw the same. I made out a semblance of a C and K but all other initials , including 1947, are grown over. Unlike me, tree has repaired itself. I know the horse water trough you speak of. I think it was a monument to Clapp’s favorite horse in the early 1900’s. It also speaks of our past before automobiles ascended. It is a wonderful monument to Pittsfield’s past and, as usual, we cheapen it by placement in a spot seen only by 3 year olds who will think it is very big for a bird bath.

And try to imagine the resentment John Doe is going to then have for Joe Smith for taking money from him that he needed to feed his family when he did absolutely nothing to Joe Smith. Will that make race relations better or worse do ya think?

Who am I? I sit on a $10.1 million slush fund, while I helped to pass a municipal operating budget that raises property taxes by over $1,800,000, increased fees by double digits, and increased public debts/liabilities by tens of millions of dollars for fiscal year 2021. I use creative accounting gimmicks to move public money around various city accounts, while giving away millions of dollars to out-of-town millionaires. Answer: Matt Kerwood.

If this interview doesn’t disturb people, I don’t know what will.

Sean Hannity: (35:55)
Let’s talk about a second term. If you hear in 131 days from now, at some point in the night or early morning, we can now project Donald J. Trump has been reelected the 45th president of the United States. Let’s talk. What’s at stake in this election as you compare and contrast, and what is one of your top priority items for a second term?

Donald Trump: (36:17)
Well, one of the things that will be really great… You know, the word experience is still good. I always say talent is more important than experience. I’ve always said that, but the word experience is a very important word. It’s a very important meeting. I never did this before. I never slept over in Washington. I was in Washington, I think, 17 times. All of a sudden, I’m president of the United States. You know the story. I’m riding down Pennsylvania Avenue with our First Lady and I say, “This is great.”

Donald Trump: (36:43)
But I didn’t know very many people in Washington, it wasn’t my thing. I was from Manhattan from New York. Now I know everybody, and I have great people in the administration. You make some mistakes. An idiot like Bolton, all he wanted to do is drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to drop bums on everybody. You don’t have to kill people. [ crosstalk 00:37:01]-

Why? Because she’s doing the actual job of the DA? She should be commended and praised for appealing a simple issue? Other DAs also had cases with this issue and they were part of the appeal too. Listen to the SJC arguments–other lawyers did most of the presentation. She answered a few questions at the end–that’s it.

This was also in the news yesterday:

From the story

“God sees all of us as perfect,” Gregory said, recalling his words Monday. “It’s mankind who sees imperfection in man.”
“No one has the right on this Earth to judge anyone,” he said. “Carmen has reached perfection.”

With all due respect to Father Gregory; in this country we have a judicial system set up for the purpose of judging people for their actions, something the catholic church went out of their way to avoid when it came to pedophiles among their own. I find it an interesting comment from the Father.

Carmen may very well have been innocent. Only he and any accuser knows for certain, so I will refrain from judging him. But I will judge the actions of the church as so shameful, that I believe God would never see perfection in the men who perpetrated the abuse of children and the leaders who covered it up.

Just like the Pittsfield mayor and council. It is like the Russian Doll series. Same shit different day, day in and day out. Most of the councilors are cloned soldiers to the mayoral hierarchy. They are recruited well before any election and plugged in as needed. Guarantee there are at least ten lined up for the next election. And they will all have the necessary DNA to be tools of a given mayor. Kerwood knows how that all works cuz he was there for a long time. He could write a book about it. He has been duly rewarded for his compliance as you can see.

Puki and Moon are trying, really trying to project themselves as the ‘Sexy City Councilors.’ The tag line – we are hip, we GET It. We are the renaissance.’ Maybe they are used to attract customers to downtown Pittsfield bars – to avoid your eyes laying on the man in dirty pajamas lying in his own filth on the sidewalk. Or the possibility that you might get shot leaving Methuselah.
I think Puki is bought sold and paid for by Downtown Pittsfield, which really doesn’t give a shit about 99 out of 100 people of the City. They just want what is coming to them, they just want their fair share, which is every damn cent. The city money laundering that goes on in Downtown Pittsfield is the equivalent of the Ohio envelops of cash. I mean the Beacon thievery would take a few trucks to carry away so envelops are small time.
Politicians enjoy it that we go into ideological tribes that fight each other while they cash out out behind the a scene. Look at Chuck Schumer – biggest sellout of all time, which is sad as he is a very smart man.

I always enjoy reading your awesome blog, Dan Valenti. The Catholic leaders of Pittsfield (Mass.) had a reputation of being homosexual deviants. I heard about it all since I was a young man. I have heard and read about Carmen Massimiano and Angelo Stracuzzi’s alleged sexual abuse of young boys and/or underage teenage boys. I read that when Carmen Massimiano was a camp counselor at Camp Russell during his teenage years, he allegedly sexually abused young boys there. I read and heard that Carmen Massimiano allegedly sexually abused young boys, including at the Boys’ Club in Pittsfield (Mass.). I read that Angelo Stracuzzi was arrested for sexually abusing underage teenage boys in Maine in 2004. I read that Cliff Nilan was reprimanded for not making Angelo Stracuzzi meet the requirements of his probation, including two years of psychological counseling for sexual deviancy. I heard rumors that Carmen and Cliff were in a homosexual relationship when they were young men. Cliff Nilan took over Carmen Massimiano’s job as Chief Probation Officer in the Pittsfield Superior Court. I heard rumors that Gerry Downing frequented homosexual bars for men in Boston. Gerry Downing and Daniel Ford were prosecutors together who railroaded Bernard Baran in the 1980’s. I was told that everyone who worked in the Pittsfield courts felt Bernard Baran was framed by Pittsfield’s homosexual deviant Catholic leaders. I was told that the homosexual deviant Catholic Priests may have sexually abused Carmen Massimiano, Angelo Stracuzzi, Cliff Nilan, Gerry Downing, and Daniel Ford, which contributed to their secret double life as closeted homosexual deviant men. I read on the blogs that Bernard Baran knew about all of this, and Pittsfield’s Catholic leaders wanted him out of the way. They used the children to frame and railroad Bernard Baran to meet their objectives. Berkshire County District Attorney Gerry Downing knowingly hid the audio tape recordings of the children that proved Bernard Baran was innocent of the sexual abuse against the children who were sexually abused by another man. Why did Gerard Downing hide the exculpatory evidence for around twenty years until his death in late-2003? Why did it take District Attorney David Capeless a couple of years to turn over the exculpatory evidence, which led to Bernard Baran to be released from state prison after over two decades of incarceration? Why did David Capeless resign and retire before his term in office officially ended? Why isn’t anyone interviewing David Capeless about all of this? What does he know, and what really happened in the Berkshire County District Attorney’s Office? Was Carmen Massimiano, Angelo Stracuzzi, Cliff Nilan, Daniel Ford involved in framing an innocent homosexual teenager to cover their own tracks? Would David Capeless come clean and finally tell the truth about the tragedy of the late Bernard Baran?

So at work today someone mentioned those 5 minute pickup signs. She works at a local eatery and their sign broke two days after it was placed. They are built with some scrap wood, not fully painted and they fall over easily. The signs themselves crack in half because of poo construction. Who built those signs and how much did they cost they city said they won’t replace them
