Will Pinewood Gnome make bid for St. Patty’s 10k?

HOLYOKE — Pinewood Gnome is training, seen here at Ashley Reservoir, and could return to compete in the Paper City next year.  Pinewood was disqualified in 2014 for attempting to shortcut the race.  He was caught by helicopter video running along the shoulder of Interstate 91 between Westfield Road and Cherry Street.  Mr. Gnome would make no comment.

The 41st Annual St. Patrick’s Road Race is scheduled for Saturday, March 19, 2016 — the rifle goes off at 1pm sharp.

Cat Forecloses on House

NEARBY – A tortoiseshell house cat has claimed her own house.  Rosie “Lil’ Baby” Fadel filed a notice of default with the Hampden County Raccoon of Deeds last Tuesday while her human guardians were out of town, but there is no auction.  The chocolate tortie says she intends to live in the house herself.  “We have right of residence” observed one of her human caretakers, “but in the eyes of the law it’s not enough to keep her out of the big bed”.
