A regional bike share program is set to launch in western Massachusetts this spring.

Fishermen are worried about an offshore wind farm proposed 30 miles out in the Atlantic from Montauk, NY, the largest fishing port in the state. They say those wind turbines – and many others that have been proposed – will impact the livelihood of fishermen in New York and New England.   

New Englanders largely missed the brunt of Tropical Storm Jose. It’s moved miles off the coast of Massachusetts and is expected to weaken in those waters. Wind energy advocates say Jose’s path to New England illustrates the ideal location for wind turbines.
