Weaver's Cove abandons Fall River LNG plan

FALL RIVER, Mass. -- Citing "unfavorable economics," Weaver's Cove Energy and Hess LNG announced Monday that they had dropped their long-fought plans to build a floating liquefied natural gas terminal. Links below to two articles - one by Alex Kuffner from the Pro Jo and one by Will Richmond from the Fall River Herald News.
Thank you Rep Ray Gallison, Save the Bay, Save Bristol Harbor, The Bristol Town Council, the RI House & RI Senate, The City of Fall River, MA and the many others who fought this battle for eight years!

Below is a message from Save the Bay:
This victory is a credit to the more than 5,000 people who signed our petition and the hundreds who attended public hearings and made donations; the many local organizations that mobilized their communities; state officials and the congressional delegations of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and municipalities that challenged the project every step of way – especially the City of Fall River and the Town of Bristol. The work of protecting Narragansett Bay from threats like the LNG project takes time, resources and a dedicated professional staff. Thanks and congratulations to you all.

Bristol Golf Course given honor as worst in America by NY Times!
"But quirky as these courses are, none can compare with the Bristol Golf Club, in nearby Bristol, R.I., which is of a worseness so extreme that you occasionally wonder if it’s not ironic. Maybe, like certain fashion trends, it’s bad on purpose?

More likely, the course is the way it is because golf is not the highest priority here: something you sense when you to try to find the pro shop, and discover that all the golf business — paying for greens fees, buying a last-minute sleeve of balls — is done at one end of the bar. And Bristol has also been stuck — blighted, you could say — with some of the least likely golfing terrain imaginable. The course is in the middle of an industrial park, so that the opening hole, for example, an otherwise flat and forgettable 137-yard par 3, is enhanced by the sight of a blue metal warehouse building behind the green. When I played here recently, there was a guy out in back welding, and the sparks brightened a day otherwise overcast and dismal."
