EASTHAM/HARWICH – Two games. Two tough opponents. Two huge finishes for the Monomoy Sharks, who kicked off their 2019-2020 season with big wins against Nauset and Sandwich.

With a host of Sharks fans staging a whiteout in the...

ORLEANS – When losing a number of seniors through graduation, a rebuilding year might be expected, but when the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs boys ice hockey team faced the Nauset Warriors on Dec. 14, there was little to suggest either team was struggling. Instead, it was a fast-paced contest at the Charles Moore Arena when the first and hopefully annual Lower Cape Showdown commenced. Part fundraiser to benefit the...

HARWICH – You might have seen Sean Gould on the soccer pitch this fall. Don't be fooled. While the Monomoy senior does love the sport, another has captured his heart, which is why Gould recently signed his letter of intention to play ball for Curry College. “I love soccer, but baseball is my first love,” Gould said. “I realized from a young age that this is what I want.

Our View: 'Cape Cod Detour Land'

By: The Cape Cod Chronicle

(Sung to the tune of “Winter Wonderland.”) Backup alarms ring, are you listening? In the lane, pavement's blistering. A frustrating sight, We'll be late tonight, Driving through a Cape Cod detour land. Flagmen freeze, just like stones. Halting traffic, on their iPhones. They're backing up cars, Gazing at stars, Driving through a Cape Cod detour land. On the detour we can see the back lanes. And pret...

ORLEANS – Most of those who spoke at the state’s Dec. 11 hearing on a proposed roundabout at routes 28 and 39 and Quanset Road thought it was a bright idea, but they didn’t want it to be too bright. “There are 17 light fixtures in this plan,” Selectman Kevin Galligan told representatives of the state Department of Transportation and consultants from VHB. “This is over-lit. Picture coming from a dark space ...
