PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

First in a Two-Part Series

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY MARCH 29, 2021) — There’s a clan war going on between some residents of the Shacktown section on upper Holmes Road and the city of Pittsfield over a now-built and running cell phone tower there.

In 2017 Verizon petitioned the city to construct a 5G, 115-foot, 12-antennae tower. The Zoning Board of Appeals approved a special permit, and construction began in March 2017. The ZBA, city planner C.J. Hoss, and city solicitor Stephen Pagnotta say residents within 300 feet of the tower were properly notified. A handful of residents opposed to the tower disagree and went to court. Late last summer, Superior Court judge Doug Wilkins dismissed the neighborhood’s claims out of hand. Wilkins said residents had a 90-day window to raise concerns about the construction but no one came forward within that period.

“While the result may seem harsh to abutters, the opposite rule may be harsh to applicants, who may invest time, effort, and money in acting under a permit in the honest belief that no one intended to contest or appeal from the permit,” Wilkins said in his late-August 2020 ruling.

———- ooo ———-

The tower, located at 877 South Street, hovers over a neighborhood that includes Plumb, Alma, Fairhaven, and Ora streets; Elmer, Atmer, Stanton, and Oliver avenues; and Lori Court.

The neighborhood’s story keeps moving. First they complained they weren’t notified. Then they objected on aesthetic grounds. Now they claim health hazards — headaches, cardiovascular stress, birth defects, and cancer.

The FCC disagrees: “Measurements made near typical cellular and PCS installations, especially those with tower-mounted antennas, have shown that ground-level power densities are hundreds to thousands of times less than the FCC’s limits for safe exposure.   This makes it extremely unlikely that a member of the general public could be exposed to RF levels in excess of FCC guidelines due solely to cellular or PCS base station antennas located on towers or monopoles.”

The American Cancer Society also disagrees, saying there is no credible evidence that exposure to RF from cell towers causes any noticeable health effects.

What’s not in dispute are the facts. Cell phone towers emit large amounts of radio frequency radiation (RF) — “microwaves,” the kind you use everyday to cook your food. Of course, unlike ovens, cell towers emit massive amounts of radiation, which is the combination of electronic and magnetic waves moving together at the speed of light — almost faster than Peter White could coin the word “houseless.” That’s why they are built tall and out of reach. Measurements on the ground show little to no increased radiation from typical ground readings.

Board of Health director Gina Armstrong said that only one resident of the area complained of heath concerns and no one submitted any specific claims.

The most vocal resident of Shacktown has been Courtney Gilardi. On Sept. 21, sent the following e-mail to Armstrong:

“I contacted the Pittsfield Health department weeks ago when my daughter started having headaches that corresponded with the activation of a cell tower in our neighborhood. I was reassured someone would call me back that afternoon after they returned from the field, but that never happened.
When may I be able to speak with someone about our concerns?”
———- ooo ———-
City councilor Chris Connell, in whose ward Shacktown is located, submitted with Ward 5’s Patrick Kavey a petition requesting that the health department investigate the residents’ concerns. “Apparently the health department has not sent anyone there to at least document the symptoms,” Connell told THE PLANET. “They are just stating that they don’t have the expertise. I don’t believe so have to have a special expertise to investigate and document the health concerns. I believe the city and the administration are just trying to pass the buck. Maybe it’s because there could be a legal issue since the city granted the permit.”
Armstrong told THE PLANET:

“In response to the concerns raised by residents, the Health Department is preparing resource information for a review with the Pittsfield Board of Health. Because there are no MA state or Federal EMF/RF safe limit regulations, local public health does not have the standards or process to access EMF/RF conditions locally, nor the expertise to conduct a health assessment of neighboring residents. At the next  meeting of the Pittsfield Board of Health, the Board is prepared to review options for next steps to address the neighborhood health concerns.

“With advancements in technology and a demand for health impact studies related to that technology, State legislation has been filed that would establish a special commission to conduct health studies associated with electromagnetic and radiofrequency radiation. Unfortunately,  there is no state funding at this time to support the bill.”

———- ooo ———-

In Part Two, THE PLANET follows up with more, include our verdict on this Solomon matter.

Pittsfield has 2 toxic waste dumps that abut Allendale Elementary School, a nearly 23 year old vacant and polluted PEDA park with huge liabilities where former Mayor Jimmy Ruberto’s useless rolodex is buried in the PCBs-tainted soil, a new 5G cellphone tower that is causing public health concerns, state and local career politicians who vote themselves generous taxpayer-funded pay raises and public perks that the average resident can only dream of, Matt Kerwood’s +$10 million to around $14 million slush fund plus $41.6 million in promised Biden Buck$ over the next 2 years, a dangerous downtown that is called “Social Services Alley” full of dozens of empty storefronts and “The Shooting Gallery” after hours that most people avoid for their own personal safety, Level 5 inner city public schools, pot odors stinking up working class neighborhoods, a shrinking population caused by decades of losses in living wage jobs and shuttered businesses, and record setting municipal budgets, taxes, fees, public debts and other hidden liabilities in the hundreds of millions of dollars that are always deferred decades into the far off future via Matt Kerwood’s creative accounting schemes. Did I miss anything?

I agree. I post the same old criticisms of Pittsfield politics day in and day out on Dan Valenti’s awesome blog. How about this? Pittsfield is dynamic and vibrant. The Lovely Linda will makeover Pittsfield anew after GE left the area over one generation ago. TFB and Adam Hinds go to Boston to represent the taxpayers. Richie Neal goes to Capitol Hill to represent the people who live in his Western Massachusetts Congressional District. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey advocate for the Green New Deal to save us all from global warming. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are working on behalf of the American People to someday get us out of the “K-shaped” recovery (for Wall Street)/recession (for Main Street) so that the average working family will someday get ahead of the game again. How is that for blowing hot air that state and local career politicians say to the people of Pittsfield, Massachusetts?

I would love to see the addresses to the people that were notified. From the description I read 300 ft seems to be a small radius. I am not sure if the neighbors have any recourse except to sell and get out of Dodge! This week begins the new election cycle so maybe the neighbors can get some candidates to run who are sympathetic to their cause. In today’s climate I don’t know who to believe, everyone seems to have experts and papers to support their side.

Our own Senator Markey, 74 years old, will try to merge the green new deal with the infrastructure bill. It will be a tricky bill that is mainly about climate change and only a small part about infrastructure. Markey and Liz Warren, both climate fanatics, will push for adding as much of the very controlling green new deal to the bill as possible. Even very wealthy Barack Obama and his wife, while spouting off about climate change and the eventual erosion of our coasts, bought a multi-million dollar mansion very near the ocean. The elites don’t even believe their own climate change rhetoric. It’s a means of control over the country.

​The number of migrants testing positive for the coronavirus before being released into the US by the Border Patrol is surging, almost doubling the amount from last week, according to a report. ​​

Felipe Romero, a spokesman for Brownsville, Texas, said 185 migrants rapid-tested at the city’s main bus station showed they were infected with COVID-19, ​up from the 108 who tested positive last week, Fox News reported Monday.

I’m pretty sure cell towers are “built tall and out of reach” to provide better coverage, not because of radiation.
I’m wondering if those with physical symptoms since the tower was activated have sought treatment from a physician before contacting the board of health.

I find it totally pathetic that ALL OF A SUDDEN some City Clownsil members want to look into this issue! Where were these clowners a year ago, how about for the past 10 months? Amazing since elections are coming up ALL OF A SUDDEN they are interested in helping these residents. Where were these clowners when it was “discovered” well over a year ago that the address of the cell tower was amazingly incorrect, so that is why supposedly these residents were not notified as abutters. What a convenient maneuver by City Hall. Real slimy maneuver, is that why Armstrong and Tyer never respond to these taxpayers? Feel really sorry for these residents. Feel their frustration as I live in a neighborhood off Dalton Avenue that is inundated with pot smell and us taxpayers had no input in Tyer’s famous Vibrant and Dynamic POT Campus.

Then, ask them how they feel about Pittsfield politics after a couple of months living on the edges of society. I bet they would say they are unhappy with how Pittsfield is run by the out-of-touch politicians who earn big salaries, public perks, lucrative retirements (and then predictably become greedy lobbyists like Dan Bosley and Peter Larkin), and put millions/billions of hard-earned taxpayer dollars into huge slush funds.

Before they are bussed across the country, they are being housed in facilities meant for 100 people, but in which they are putting 4,000 young people guaranteeing a spread of the virus.

Or what about the variants of the virus the media and Democrats have been trying to scare us about for the past months? All of a sudden, it’s all good as they pack 4,000 kids into a building meant for 100. Don’t worry, the teachers are looking out for themselves. Just as they stepped to the head of the line before people age 60 and over for the vaccines, they are now demanding a smaller number of young people in their classrooms, but they also know that they will be teaching lots of these illegal immigrants in the future since so many parents are taking their kids out of public schools after seeing just how little concern they have for their kids.

Stop watching Rachel Maddow and CNN. President Trump had the border running very efficiently. The Democrats putting 4,000 young people in a building meant for 100 during a pandemic is a disgrace!!! Not to mention spreading COVID across the country because they aren’t being quarantined. They are just being bussed across the country.

The question is about the border crisis. “what more can be done sir?”

BIDEN: “A lot more. We are in the process of doing it now. Including making sure that we reestablish what existed before; which was, they should stay in place and make their case from their home countries. Thank you”

Uh-oh. Joe got away from his handlers again!

Someone get the nets!
