HEROIN: THE UNSEEN PREDATOR

Rt. 28 Paving Welcomed
CHATHAM – Sections of Route 28 that were in terrible conditions were paved during the past week, leaving some people grateful and others scratching their heads. Much of the roadway where there is now smooth new pavement was the subject of a year-long campaign to “Pave Route 28 Now” due to its poor condition.

Historic District Initiative Would Honor Sea Captains
WEST HARWICH — You could call it Captain's Row. The history that stretches along Route 28 from the Herring River to the Dennis town line is immersed in blue-water sailors dating back to 1630s. An effort is underway that focuses on the architectural and living history in that area to help drive the town's economic engine.

Ban The Plastic Bag
You see them at night, caught in the headlights, appearing like a snowy owl swooping down from a tree toward your vehicle. The first thought is to swerve, but then you realize it is only a plastic bag alight in the wind or entangled in an overhanging branch. They lift like parachutes and carry down the beach and out onto the water. They will sit in landfills for a century or two, stubborn against decomposition.

Exploring Monomoy
CHATHAM --- Even before their school systems merged, Chatham and Harwich always had a lot in common. After all, you can't get into Chatham without passing through Harwich. But there has also been a long rivalry between the two communities, a lot of it based on misconceptions, said Ann Vick-Westgate.
