Some jerks with a carpenters union are jeopardizing the stadium renovations in Pittsfield.

Anyone know more about this?

Is this going to stop Bouton & co from moving forward?

Nah, it won't stop them. I would think (probably incorrectly) that because the property is being leased to a private group, then the contracts don't have to go up for bid. But if the Attorney General says otherwise after appeal, then the law will have to be obeyed.

However, the latest in Wahconah Park news is that it was ground zero for two F-zero tornadoes (70 mph winds) yesterday. There's some damage to fences and siding including a giant hole in the wall along the third base side, but the park looks as sturdy as ever. Just cosmetic damage for the most part.

So there's a little extra work the union guys can bid on.
