  • County Commissioner Proposes Idea to Use Bounty Hunters to Catch Cape’s ‘Criminal Illegal Aliens’

    01/11/2018 6:00:01 AM PST · by ptsal · 20 replies News Center ^ | 11 Jan 2018 | Brian Merchant
    HYANNIS – A proposal to use bounty hunters on Cape Cod to locate and apprehend criminal illegal aliens has been proposed by a Barnstable County Commissioner. In a letter sent to the NewsCenter and posted on Facebook, Ronald Beatty said there are millions of dangerous illegal aliens throughout the country who have committed crimes which range from identity theft and robbery to rape, assault and murder – and that some of them are here on Cape Cod. **snip**  Beaty believes using bounty hunters is an innovative way to help local law enforcement and federal agents with the challenging issue.

    I was water-skiing with my children in a light drizzle off Hyannis, Mass., last month when a sudden, fierce storm plunged us into a melee of towering waves, raking rain, painful hail and midday darkness broken by blinding flashes of lightning. As I hurried to get my children out of the water and back to the dock, I shouted over the roaring wind, "This is some kind of tornado." The fog consolidated and a waterspout hundreds of feet high rose from the white ocean and darted across its surface, landing for a moment on a moored outboard to spin it...
  • Hyannis 5-Year-Old Threatened With Suspension For Making Gun Out Of Legos

    A mother says her 5-year-old boy was threatened with suspension after he made a gun out of Legos during an after school program. Sheila Cruz received a written warning recently about her son from the after school staff at the Hyannis West Elementary School because he had been using toys inappropriately. “She (the principal) said, ‘it’s a threat to other children and other children could have been scared.’” School officials say little Joe made the toy gun, then ran around the classroom, pointing it at other kids, and making shooting sounds. Cruz says while she and her husband thought about...

    HYANNIS, Mass. — The residents of this cozy village on the southern shore of Cape Cod recollect with pride the sight of his unmistakable hefty, white-topped frame as they exchanged greetings on the street, waited together in line at the local ice cream shop, shared a church pew or returned his dogs — those dogs! — after they found their way into some neighboring yard. And in one of those heartfelt compliments extended only to those of unusually good fortune, they consistently describe Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who died in August, as having been just a regular person. “He was...

    Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., has a new ally in his effort to torpedo an environmentally friendly "wind farm” off the coast from the Kennedy compound in Hyannis – the Pentagon. The Defense Department has begun a study to find out if wind turbine projects designed to produce energy could interfere with military radar – even though wind farms are already operating in military radar areas. The study is threatening not only the Cape Wind project off the coast of Massachusetts, but other wind farm projects around the country as well. The study was inserted in the 2006 Defense Authorization Act...

    Given to environmentalist lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose fight for "green" energy apparently stops as soon as the results might spoil his view. Kennedy penned an irate New York Times op-ed in December, condemning the proposed building of wind turbines around the Nantucket Sound. While Kennedy criss-crosses the country in his jet-fuel-burning private plane stumping for alternative energy sources, he wants an exception for his own backyard. Greenpeace spokesman Chris Miller was not pleased, saying: "It's about a vision for healthy oceans, not the view from the Kennedy compound."
