Nuclear Buildings, a Heat Wave and Blueberry Pancakes
A look back at the week’s most notable stories.
After years of dumping uranium into the ground on Main Street, former Concord company Nuclear Metals closed up shop in the 1980s. Years later, the site was deemed unsafe by the Environmental Protection Agency and finally, this past week, several groups agreed to demolish buildings that remain on site.
The other big story this week was the excessive heat that residents contended with. Concord Light anticipated a peak energy demand on Thursday, while the Harvey Wheeler Center advertised itself as one that offered a cool environment. Still, residents found other ways to stay cool this week.
Finally this week, we at Patch would like to introduce you to Chris Tanguay, your new, full-time Concord editor! Chris has spent a lot of time working in journalism and he is very eager to meet the residents of this town. Learn more about him and say hello at this link.
