Amherst Town Manager John Musante, Governor Patrick, Stan Rosenberg 10/21/14
The Eastern centric State Legislature will have a hard time ignoring Western Massachusetts over the next few years.
And since Stan is a proud UMass graduate, good news for our flagship of higher education and the town they call home.
Unfortunately Stan's ceremony was marred by the collapse of his long time friend, well known UMass Journalism Professor Ralph Whitehead.
Fortunately staff on hand knew how to use a defibrillator and it sounds like they got him to Mass General Hospital in time.
