I continue to pray for the victims and their families, and as I do, I thought, what can I say that hasn’t been said? And as I thought more, I found myself thinking: what has been said that should never have been said? What we say, what we mean, what we teach is important. The words we choose matter. This violence needs to end.
Posted on May 04, 2022 by the Highway DepartmentAmherst Highway Superintendent Patrick Lucey is announcing that the Town Highway Department scheduled 60 roads for paving in 2022 which equates to over 20 lane miles.

Some of the roads to be paved are Andover, Birdsong Cir., Boundbrook Ct., Brian Ave., Britannia Dr., Dann, Emerald, Exeter, Ironwood, Jack, Knollwood, Laurel, Lemay Ct., Pinebrook, Quantico, Renaissance, Rollingwood, Teakwood. This is only a partial list of roads, external factors such as weather conditions and the rising cost of fuel and asphalt will determine how many roads can be completed.
