Spring has arrived and with it the joy of taking in local area street performers. On this particular Friday night my three year old is in awe of the "big boys" who are wailing out some classics on the guitar (Walden Marshall, age 11) and bucket drum (Jonathan Marshall, age 7).

Community television programming provided through Amherst Media -- the former ACTV -- has long held up a mirror to public life in Amherst. As its name change suggests, this is a cause that's grown beyond television, as it exploits new digital technologies to give that mirror new dimensions.

The Amherst health department brought in literature. The Cambodian participants brought in food.
