My thoughts and prayers go out for the officer that was directing traffic in from of St. Anthony's Church when a driver brushed him with her car and later hit him in a hurray to get to her church. This operator should have her license taken away for life for her careless attitude for an officer doing his duty and her rush to get somewhere.

Bicyclist Injured in Crash. A car vs. cyclist crash occurred at the intersection of Sandwich Rd. and Brick Kiln Rd. on Thursday at 6:10 pm. The cyclist sustained a broken leg, was treated at the scene by police and fire personnel, and then transported to Falmouth Hospital. The occupants of the vehicle were not hurt. The cyclist was cited for failing to stop at a red light. Traffic at the intersection was delayed in all directions for about half an hour. ... See MoreSee Less

Cyclists not obeying traffic laws is a real problem in this town

Glad he got cited, to many of them do not follow the rules of the road

And just think they want bicycles to ride on rt 28 Mashpee don't even have a bike lane on 28 theirs goes down toward Sandwich rd from rt 151 which was Falmouths original plan when Mr Calise was the town engineer they should look at his drawings maybe one of those suited individuals might grow a pair and step up Yes Men that's them

Candice Leigh. The accident Torie and Kiarrah saw.

See so many riding with no helmet, no lights and dark clothing at night, etc.

Glad the guy is ok, that looked like a nasty accident the other day. Traffic violation or no, that's the thing that matters.

Yup Sunday mornings driving by the beach maybe 10 or 12 bicyclist riding down middle of the road they pull over after I climb up on them horrible

Yes it is a real problem they don't push over either they hog the road.

Bonnie is her name on the tags but the other info on the tags was no longer accurate. Her owner has claimed her and will be picking her up at the pound tomorrow!

Well this is the one that visits my house every night. I'm in the heights, he Pays no mind to anyone and is just getting ready for winter.

I bet it was,he was here all afternoon

I hope he didn't eat a rat with poison in it.

Poor guy 🤢

Poor guy. I saw him on Jones rd. Near the courthouse yesterday. He was clearly in some distress, and wasn't moving out of the road.

Believe I just saw it in the parking lot of Falmouth Glass and Mirror

He’s blind in the left eye but ambulates normally. Keep cats and small dogs indoors. Don’t leave food outdoors for any wildlife or feral cats. Make sure your trash cans have secure lids.

I saw the coyote on Worcester Court today around noon I think. The environmental police were there watching it.

My husband saw it on Jericho Path today and it was very aggressive

Saw him running down Main Street today

We

Does anyone know if the coyote was found

Peggy Burdick is this the one from your yard?

I prefer to deafen them with an air horn prior to hanging up. Your approach may vary.

I answer the phone and tell them they're on a recorded line. It freaks them out!

I dial random numbers until they hang up

I push a few buttons and say, " this is the call to be traced." They can't hang up fast enough.

Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the warning -there's always a new one...

Good information for people who may never experienced a tornado. I experience one in Kansas and am I happy to be living in the northeast.
