Stuart in Noho!
Sunday August 19, 2007
In late July, Marty Stuart, the
right hand man to the late Johnny Cash posed for this pic for my Dad. A few weeks later my Dad fell asleep and he doesn't wake up anymore. Thank you Marty Stuart for the pic. Dad loved Nashville, the Red Sox, Loretta Lynn and his family. A few hours after I posted this...
Sunday August 19, 2007
My Dad passed on. He was sleeping when he left. I hope he goes to a way better place where they have Nashville, the
Red Sox & Loretta Lynn. My
Dad got married New Year's
Eve. He was just 25 years old.
He loved to take and develop
photos in his photo lab. Only
had B&W then so he colored
them by hand. He was good good at it. Thank God for color and digital. My Dad was Scottish Canadian and loved to hear the bagpipes and fiddle. No bagpipes today Dad, but here's a little fiddle just for U!
of the year! It's the hitch-hiking cop. He's well known to resident's of Noho, but today an out of town motorist wittnessed him hitch-hiking and made the call. An Officer was dispatched. You can see him trying to talk him down, or rather, talk his thumb down. His story? His shift was over and he just wanted a ride to the station. When the officer told him his shift just began...the cop changed his story. Well one thing you don't do is change your story to an officer! The cop got his ride to the station, where he spent the night. The next day the judge laughed and thew it out of court. You guessed it, he's right back out on the streets!
the best police force. Our
officer's have high standards to keep. It's what
makes the NPD so unique. Today they
are patrolling the Veteran's Day Parade.
It is well co-ordinated with the help of the NPD.

so nice about Noho is that you can
do anything you want any time you
want as long as you're not breaking
The people of Northampton have figured
out how to keep crime out by just
not letting it in.
Northampton is essentially a crime
free, safe and comfortable place that
people want to be.
who live here can go any area they
wish, dress as they wish, and just
plain be who they wish.
Police and Public Safety Downtown Northampton
is always monitored by foot patrol. On left, two officer's are walking the walk. It's the downtown foot patrol's up and down the sidewalk routine walk. Officer Allard is set up at the crosswalk in the center of town. He's checking for expired registrations and inspection stickers. But check it out, he's looking at me and it's looking like he's going to point the finger at me. Hey, I'm not expired. Maybe it's my shoe. The right shoe didn't pass the nickel or dime test for tread. Yep, that was it. "Honest, I promise to get the shoe fixed, if you let me go with just a warning". Phew, he let me off without a ticket. Gonna have to find a way to dodge him till he forgets my face. Today I learned you should never let Highway Safety see you walking in circles. On bike patrol is Officer Jiminez. The downtown is routinely patrolled by both the foot patrol and bike patrol. In the last pic, I got 2 officer's in one shot. Makin' my job easier, less walking around and it saves on my batteries. There was a big public event May 2 and it was well patrolled by the foot patrol. On left is Officer Yasutomo, and to her right is Officer McGlauflin.
I love to make up stories to go with the pics of our Officer's. The fact is, our town is what it is, awarded "Best Small Arts Town" and in the top 100 year after year because our officer's do an outstanding job. It's not easy to be a cop in Noho. NPD has high standards for it's Officer's and our Officer's keep Noho ranking high!
you visit Northampton...I guarantee you you will have just
as much fun as I do everyday. Noho is the only town I have
ever lived in that I never want to leave!
all our officers of the Northampton Police force...thank
you for your dedication and service and for helping to keep
this town an enjoyable and safe place.
Pedesrians and Parking Downtown Northampton Hampton Ave.
two ladies are returning from a fun time in downtown Northampton,
and as they hit the crosswalk to head home...Boom! they quickly
change their mind and their direction for a 30 second walk
to the ice cream parlor "Herrell's".
is all encompassing with everything necessary to fulfill the
most insatiable thirst for the ultimate social time! The parking
garage is right behind the Ladies. To my right (which of course you
can't see) as I take this pic is another large parking lot.
Many people worry about coming to Noho, because of parking,
well the parking here is way plenty
enough! You just need to know how to find it, and it's easy
because it's right behind the biggest marketplace in Noho,
central main street, right in the heart of
parking garage you see in the pic has a walkway right into
thorn's market and THORNS
is also equipped with an elevator.
