Weeds Grow In South Amherst
The two roundabouts at Atkins Corner are already going to seed. Hey, what do you expect for a lousy $6 million.
The property is still in that netherworld where the contractor -- Baltazar Contractors Inc -- is finishing up a "punch list" of final details before the state Department Of Transportation accepts the work and then turns over responsibility of the turf to the town.
I'm told town officials are hoping Atkins Country Market and Hampshire College "adopt" the islands of green space. After all, it is their front yard.
