McGovern Goes Local

On July 2nd, Congressman Jim McGovern visited All Things Local, a cooperative food market in Amherst, MA. During his visit, he discussed the impact of buying and selling local with several local farmers and the store manager. Several of our summer interns from Amherst College were on hand to cover the Congressman's visit.

Storm

If you were tuning in to any of our channels over the weekend and unable to view the programming you were looking for, we appear to have had a major power outage due to the bad weather Friday evening.  Our equipment was offline, but should now be up and running.  We are still without internet access in the building, so if you need to contact us in a hurry, it would be best to call us instead of emailing.
