MORE THAN JUST A HIT TO THE HEAD:
Why Concussion Injuries Should Be Taken Seriously

Each time a student athlete steps into a game, their parents feel a sense of anxiety given the risk of injury, no matter the sport.

Training Field Finds Lead To Calls To Protect Town's Archaeological Resources
CHATHAM For years, the town's militia trained on land not far from the old center of town at what is now the corner of Old Queen Anne and George Ryder roads. Known today as The Golden Triangle, the 38-acre parcel was purchased by the town in 1972 and is now conservation land crisscrossed by walking trails.  It is also, apparently, occasionally visited by artifact hunters.

Selectmen Endorse Hike In Fish Pier Fees
CHATHAM
Saying the funds will help offset the town's investment in its working waterfront, selectmen Tuesday endorsed increases to docking fees at the fish pier. The board was asked to consider implementing only the non-resident fee increases Tuesday, to allow time for the waterways advisory committee to weigh in on smaller proposed fee increases for resident boat owners. But a majority of board members favored increasing both categories of fees at the same time in the interest of fairness.

Monomoy Sharks Get The Best Of Cape Tech Crusaders
HARWICH The Cape Tech Crusaders fared better than when they first faced the Monomoy Sharks in boys baseball action on Friday, but the Sharks still dominated the outing, earning a 20-6 victory on the Cape Tech home field.  It looked as though the Monomoy squad would once again win by mercy rule, but each time that possibility neared, the Crusaders pushed a run across to keep the game going.

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.
