Pittsfield Police Association Wraps Up Another Successful National
The evening of August 6 proved to be balmy and rain-free, the
perfect atmosphere to draw more than 200 people to the countrywide
event, National Night Out. Pittsfield even had guests from as far as
Maryland. “The difficulty in participating in a nationwide
community event like this is the fact that there are only so many
resources we can draw on,” comments Officer John Webber who was in
charge of obtaining bike helmets for the bike safety obstacle
course. “When we go to the bigger chain stores for donations, we are
told they can’t donate to us because they are donating to other
National Nights Out in the area.” This doesn’t hinder the local
efforts though because Pittsfield is lucky enough to have our own
cache of donors who help with this special night.
Many thanks go out to the many people who made this evening a
success. Because of this team effort National Night Out was able to
have: a car show arranged by Lisa and Eli English, a bouncy tent
supplied by Joe Darrah Enterprises and manned and timed by Officer
Gauthier, a K-9 demonstration by Officer Di George and K-9 Cache, a
S.W.A.T. demonstration by Sergeant Cain, a bike safety course by
Officers Webber and McCormack, hot dogs supplied by the Police
Association, cooked expertly by Officer Cassavaugh and served by Liz
Hast and Heidi Darrah, pizza from Jack’s, Town and Village Pizza,
informational tables set up by The Pittsfield Players, The First
Congregational Church of Pittsfield, Pittsfield Listens, The
Pittsfield School District, Pittsfield Youth Workshop, Pittsfield
Youth Soccer, Pittsfield PTO, face painting by Donna Keeley, a dunk

Letter To The Editor
To be hereby known that you or your representative, needs to be
involved in the running of our town. We need conversation to
determine whether we can all row in the same direction Tuesdays, 6
pm at the Town Hall (except Christmas).
We need to all step it up a notch. Come to the meetings, add what
you can. Weekly first meeting, September 3rd. Come on. Summer’s
over. Let’s get to work! And always remember the people who came
before us. They got us this far. To not give 100% at this time would
be falling short.

From the Desk of The Animal Control Officer
There was an Animal Control call recently that resulted in an
individual being bitten by a skunk. As is protocol the skunk was put
down and its remains brought to the state lab for testing for
rabies. The test came back positive and the individual was notified
so that they could begin undergoing treatment.
Please, when you see a wild animal in a residential area, leave it
alone. Do not go near it, touch it or try to capture it. If the
animal looks as if it’s acting odd to you, call the police and/or
Fish and Game and let them handle the animal. Now that we know of
one case of rabies in the area there is potential for others. Please
be safe and let us determine the threat of the animal.
From The Desk Of Chief Robert Wharem
As school goes back in session we at the Police Department remind
you not only to be wary of the kids on crosswalks and on bikes in
the roads, but also to know that when you see a school bus stopped
with lights flashing and usually the driver side Stop sign out that
you are not to pass or encroach on the school bus as it picks up or
drops off children before and after and sometimes during school.
Traffic must come to a stop in Both directions to allow children to
cross the street safely. Furthermore, be reminded that unless the
bus is on a divided highway, traffic is also to stop in both
directions and again there is no passing. The fines and more
importantly the consequences of your actions are steep.

The “Wings of Freedom Tour” has two goals: to honor the sacrifices
made by our veterans that allow us to enjoy our freedom; and to
educate the visitors, especially younger Americans, about our
national history and heritage. The Foundation encourages people to
tour the planes, talk to the veterans who come to visit the
aircraft, and participate in a “flight experience.” In twenty-one
years, the tour has made more than 2,378 visits to airports across
the United States and Alaska. While the exact number of visitors is
difficult to gauge, it is estimated that between 3 and 4 million
people see these war birds annually.
