Amherst Select Board candidates debate The Retreat student housing project

I support the ban. It is inappropriate to allow dogs on school grounds. Many children are scared of dogs, and while many, perhaps most, dog owners are respectful of others, many are not. One common example: many dog owners assume that everyone will want to be friendly with their beloved pet, allowing the dog to walk up to others. A large number of people do not like to be approached by unknown dogs. I was once on school grounds and encountered a parent with a leashed pitbull. Even though leashed, I was uncomfortable with his allowing the leash to extend far enough for the dog to sniff me. He of course, loving his dog as he should, thought it unthinkable that his dog could hurt anyone. And if it is re-allowed, how long will it be before comfortable dog owners begin letting their dogs off-leash, leading to more doing the same. Why take the chance? It's a school. They should allow dogs to be kept in cars though. ...(full comment)

They're treating this like it's just an issue of courtesy, that he should come forward so the girls can be spared rabies shots and then everyone will be fine. But this is not a matter of courtesy. It's criminal, just like a hit-and-run driver. If they find this guy, he should be jailed. ...(full comment)

Amherst seeks help finding pit bull terrier which bit two girls on Crocker Farm School playground

Growers are already losing substantial income by not being able to sell their crops and then you are asking them to pay workers to harvest them in order to give them away. Can you see how that would not work? Maybe it's possible to come up with plans for emergency gleaning of appropriate crops but I imagine there would be questions of liability in the harvesting of certain kinds of produce. ...(full comment)

While I'm happy to see that local growers can once again count on the Market Basket business, am I the only one who finds it disturbing that they would rather let the produce rot in the field than "waste" money harvesting it? Would it have been a waste to harvest it and donate it to those in need? ...(full comment)

It's too bad that the owner of the dog never stepped forward so that the girls did not have to have rabies shots. They are really painful - my daughter had to have them twice when she was young. I hope they recover, both physically and emotionally. ...(full comment)

This is spiraling out of control. Thank god we have secure borders in case we need to close them.
