Amherst Town Center Sunday 12:25 PM
Amherst has broken out the really BIG ceremonial flag purchased last year to accompany the 29 commemorative flags in the downtown on the six holidays they are allowed to fly. Friday of course the big one went up to honor and remember Memorial Day, so tomorrow it will be at half staff from sunrise until noon.
Today, as they have done for almost 40 years, the anti-war protesters showed up at high noon. Although not as many as Occupy Amherst turned out yesterday, their longevity underscores a resolve that's hard to beat.
Weird lady shows up sporadically but keeps to herself (much to the relief of organized protesters).
