Hearing Repeats; Feds Finger Wag at Pilgrim Nuclear; & More!

VINEYARD HAVEN - The Martha's Vineyard Commission [MVC] continued the months-long review of Stop & Shop's expansion plans, an apparently frustrating process. According to one commissioner, "We can't just keep having hearings over and over and over again . . . on the minor details of the architecture until we've looked at the whole thing. Personally we haven't gotten to the elephant in the room which is traffic, so how long are we going to be talking about what the building looks like." [Vineyard Gazette]

PLYMOUTH - Entergy Corp. got called to the principal's office (sort of): "The Nuclear Regulatory Commission's top official toured the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station on Friday and later told reporters the 41-year-old plant, plagued by mechanical problems, is headed for trouble with federal regulators unless it improves its performance." [Cape Cod Times]

FALMOUTH - "A nonprofit Falmouth college has sold three residential properties that were part of the focus of a property tax dispute with the town and is in the midst of revamping its curriculum and internal procedures a year after the ousting of its chief executive officer." The town of Falmouth disputed the nonprofit status of The National Graduate School of Quality Management and taxed them as a for-profit institution. [Cape Cod Times]
