    Is Entergy Corporation legally occupying the public shoreline
    on Cape Cod Bay? That’s the question local residents want
    answered. Entergy’s Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station occupies
    about one mile of prime waterfront in Plymouth, near White
    Horse Beach.

    Pilgrim is a nuclear power station that makes electricity. Like
    all traditional power plants, it heats up water to make steam
    to run turbines. Instead of using coal or natural gas, Entergy
    uses a nuclear reactor. It takes in about 510 million gallons
    per day of sea water, heats it up, then dumps it heated and
    polluted back into Cape Cod Bay. Without using water from
    our Bay, Pilgrim cannot operate

KINGSTON SPORTS CENTER: All sports, all the time – Kingston, MA

KINGSTON – When Matt Dellabarbra was hired as general manager of the Kingston Sports Center two years ago, he had a goal to expand the business to the point where they could offer “something for everyone.” He’s well on his way to doing that as the KSC continues to grow and expand what they can offer local athletes of all ages.

The Kingston Sports Center building has three full-sized basketball courts along with a turf area for other sports. Dellabarbra’s responsibilities include running the facility along with booking and renting the building, a job which can get hectic due to the complex’s increasing popularity.
