Cook Fountain, Sweetser Park this morning
Murphy's Law summer edition dictates your lawnmower or air conditioner will break down mid peak season. Mr. Murphy's municipal version, now playing out in Amherst town center, translates to a pump failure -- for the second time in two years -- at the historic Sweetser Park Cook Fountain.
UPDATE Friday afternoon: Acting Town Manager Dave Ziomek just called and said the fountain was a "top priority" for the DPW, as it is a "crown jewel" of the downtown, and it would be fixed "very soon."
Better days (last month)
