What a difference

A Billion dollars makes. Picture above is Amherst College's ($1 billion in reserves) new athletic fields.

Now take a look at the town of Amherst ($4 million in reserves) new recreation fields on Potwine Lane in South Amherst. Yikes!

I noticed this story about the fields in the Republican yesterday.

Yeah, His Lordship Gerry Weiss (who lives nearby) noticed during his daily walks that the grass looked like crap (or I should say crabgrass).

I'm also fairly certain that Amherst college started their renovation field work way after the town started theirs...yet another advantage of unlimited funding.
