Only In The Republic Of Amherst – The Southpoint Apartment structures devastated by yesterday's fire are still standing, but four interconnecting buildings are currently uninhabitable – leaving 36 families, possibly 100 individuals (many of them children), homeless.
Larry Kelley was born and raised in Amherst, ran a karate school/health club in town for almost 30 years and returned to his original love journalism seven years ago with a hyper-local news blog,
Only In The Republic of Amherst
In 1987 his Amherst apartment was completely destroyed in a massive fire, and ever since then he's been a big fan of public safety departments. Although he still hates the smell of smoke.
