Anti-Pilgrim activists convicted of trespassing

Four Cape Cod women were convicted of trespassing at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station following a three-day trial in Plymouth District Court.

Diane Turco, Susan Carpenter and Sarah Thatcher, who had been previously been convicted of the same charge earlier this year, were given 30-day suspended jail sentences. Mary Conathan was fined $100.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Vote yes on Question 2

Dear Editor,

We are writing in support of Question 2 on November 4–updating the bottle bill to include a nickel deposit on non-carbonated beverage containers.

For us it’s simple: the containers with the deposit (carbonated) are recycled at an 80 percent rate; those without (non-carbonated) at a 23 percent rate. The bottle deposit system works, and extending it to include most types of bottles (water, sports drinks, etc.) will increase recycling and reduce litter.

Plymouth South Middle School held its 15th annual Lee Denim Day fundraiser to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.

The day is one of support, education, and fun that raises both money and awareness.  The school colors of gold and green are usurped by a sea of pink and blue as teachers, staff and students dress in pink and denim for the cause. A cake from South High’s culinary department (made by some former students) is enjoyed by staff at lunchtime, and raffle winners go home with prizes from  generous Plymouth vendors.
