John Kydd, age 49, arraigned in Eastern Hampshire District Court yesterday
Maybe I should start a "Heroin Dishonor Roll" just so drunk drivers don't feel singled out. Yes, the bubble that envelops our little college town does not protect us from the opioid scourge that has swept the nation.
And growing up Irish Catholic -- even though not still practicing -- (almost before Amherst was known as a "college town") one ingrained belief you never lose is the concept of a second chance. As in everyone deserves one.
This was Mr. Kydd's second offense.
He was released on his own recognizance, assigned a public defender (at a $300 charge) and will return to District Court on August 18.
