Home Infusion Solutions in Falmouth is one of 11 compounding pharmacies across the state that were ordered to partially or completely shut down.
The state Department of Public Health began inspecting compounding pharmacies after a contaminated steroid caused an outbreak of meningitis, according to the Cape Cod Times. Across the country 45 people died and more than 600 were sickened from using the contaminated steroid. An inspection of Home Infusion Solutions in Falmouth found the pharmacy did not comply with requirements on facility design and controls. The Department of Public Health ordered the pharmacy to stop any sterile compounding in December. Home Infusion Solutions is working to correct the problem and submitted a plan of correction to the Department of Public Health.

Nearly one hundred Falmouth residents attended a Board of Selectmen meeting last night to peacefully protest and speak out against the ongoing operation of three identical industrial wind turbines in the Falmouth Industrial Park, pleading with selectmen t
The public was invited to provide comments at Wednesday night’s meeting in Town Hall related to various options that will be presented to voters at town meeting this spring. Prior to the meeting, dozens of residents held a candle light vigil and prayed that the selectmen would not only hear their voices, but also take immediate action to stop what they described as a nuisance and danger to their health. Nearly 50 residents voiced their opinion during the public comment session, with almost every comment opposing the future operation of the turbines. Eric Sockol’s home at 819 Falmouth Highway is just 1,000 feet from Wind 2, a town-owned industrial wind turbine. Sockol passionately urged selectmen to remove the turbines immediately. He …

Which of the many CCBL players to make the majors is the best?
When the best players in the game gather in Kansas City tonight for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, no fewer than five of them will be alumni of the Cape Cod Baseball League. San Francisco's Buster Posey, Milwaukee's Ryan Braun, Baltimore's Matt Wieters, the White Sox' Chris Sale, and Arizona's Wade Miley, all showed off their skills with summers on the Cape. And that number is probably lower than usual, considering that injuries or sub-par years have kept other all-star-caliber former Cape Leaguers off the field, players like Tim Lincecum, Mark Teixeira, Evan Longoria, Chase Utley, Lance Berkman, and Jocoby Ellsbury. The Cape League's pattern of supplying top talent to the majors goes way back. Some of the best Major League …

Hundreds of residents turned out on the Falmouth Town Hall Green for various incarnations of the Pledge of Allegiance on Monday evening.
After Falmouth selectwoman Melissa Freitag created a stir by refusing to lead the traditional Pledge of Allegiance at last week's Board of Selectmen meeting, hundreds of residents packed the Town Hall Green last night to affirm their conviction that the Pledge should be upheld at those meetings. And while the majority of yesterday's protesters were there to recite the traditional Pledge of Allegiance—including Freitag, who only omitted saying the words "under God"—a separate group of about 20 counter-protesters also showed up to recite a version of the pledge that did not reference either religion or the American flag. Many of the hordes of people standing outside town hall before the meeting said news of Freitag's omission of the pledge …

Revisit your younger days when you hopped in the car, started the engine and drove off in search of something fun. Here are three unique options for you, depending on how far you want to drive. Visit one, or visit all of them. How far will you go? A 15-minute drive to Hyannis Port. Hyannis Port is the summer playground for America's royalty, the Kennedy Family. President John F. Kennedy summered here throughout his life. During his term as President, the Kennedy Compound was known as the summer White House. The late U.S. Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy spent his last days at the compound before dying of a brain tumor in August 2009. Also, in August 2009, Ted’s sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver died and was buried in the Roman Catholic cemetery …
