With the weather so nice, this past weekend I went on a few mini hikes at a few of our conservation paths and along one of the town beaches. First stop was the Swan Pond Conservation paths in DennisPort off Center Street. This Path system is not overly long but has some really nice view out over Swan Pond. The paths wind around and are relatively clear. There are two paths that do go down to the waters edge but they are pretty steep and if wet could be really slippery. There are a couple of benches you can just sit and relax on taking in the wonderful scenery.
A skydiving accident kills two in Marstons Mills, three members of the Barnstable Police Department will be promoted to sergeants, and the Department of Public Works is prepping for the FY 16 budget.
Transparency and accountability are two overused words in our American lexicon as it relates to government. Perhaps those words are worn out and hackneyed because we so thirst for them both from our elected and appointed leaders and alas, emerge parched and disappointed from that thirst. After taking an exhausting spin on a merry-go-round of obfuscation related to the town’s ownership and the ongoing management of our town-owned golf course, boy am I thirsty!
A new Mexican restaurant is coming to Hyannis, an undercover sting forces one local restaurant to close for a day next month, and find out how you can apply for a grant to promote arts in Barnstable and Yarmouth.
This is going to be an odd post from me. My writings are mostly on substance abuse issues, but I feel it it extremely important to bring notice to Babesiosis that is going around without doctors educating the people of this illness. I have been out of commission and suffered for six weeks with this horrible tick illness. This is worse than Lyme Disease.
Federal officials gather in Barnstable to discuss climate change, the second season for the Cape Flyer is a success, and health professionals will gather in Hyannis next week to discuss mental health issues.
I have a friend who tells me that you cry when the truth touches your heart. If he’s right (and I believe he is), then there’s a whole lot of truth in local director Sam Tarplin’s new documentary film, “What Happened Here: The Untold Story of Addiction on Cape Cod,” because I was wiping tears from my cheek just watching the trailer.
