About: amherst, massachusetts

When Amherst was incorporated in 1759, the colonial governor ordered residents to name the town after Jeffrey Amherst, a hero of the French-Indian War. Many colonial governors were assigning the name Amherst to many newly incorporated towns, which is why there are so many towns in the area with the name Amherst. The town's name is pronounced without the "h" which is different than several other towns with the same name. Notable residents have included poet Emily Dickinson, poet Robert Frost, actress Uma Thurman, Executive Director of NORML Allen St. Pierre, and writer Augusten Burroughs (Running with Scissors).

Berkshire County's acting district attorney, Paul Caccaviello, announced last Wednesday that he was dropping all drug charges associated with tainted findings from the now-defunct drug lab located at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst .

What slime molds can teach us about thinking

Our View: State lab and police need better monitoring

It's more than discouraging that the state of Massachusetts, for the second time in as many years, has had to throw out thousands of drug convictions because of misconduct by chemists in state drug labs. First, an estimated 21,000 cases were thrown out because of Annie Dookhan, who tampered with evidence at the Hinton state lab in Jamaica Plain; now the Supreme Judicial Court has overturned more than 11,000 drug convictions whose testing may have been compromised at the Amherst lab by Sonja Farak, who acknowledged she had been high every day she worked there.
