There's No Escape From The Cape; Shark Attack and More!

BOSTON - Group hug! "Flanked by members of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, Governor Deval Patrick signed the state's new casino agreement with the tribe, and both sides defended the compact as fair." The compact now goes to the Department of the Interior for an important thumbs up or down. []

"Congestion from traffic leaving the Cape over the Sagamore Bridge combined with drivers fleeing a 10-mile evacuation area around the plant was considered in an evacuation time estimate prepared ten years ago."
