Hinsdale selectmen order audit of townclerk's office
I think Entergy is getting worried about the public and NRC’s reputation of them with uncontrolled operational problems within their fleet...resources/money...so they are beginning to consolidate assets into their most viable nuclear plants...
The first was the need to use safety relief valves to control the pressure...
Problem appears to be with electrical system monitoring pumps that feed water to reactor

Initial troubleshooting indicated that there was no problem with the flow of water but, rather, a problem with the electrical power for the system that monitors the flow. The reactor operators followed plant procedure and took the plant offline, while back-up pumps automatically activated to maintain the water level in the reactor.
“We are continuing to gather details,” the NRC release stated, noting that the information-gathering process includes having the plant’s two resident inspectors report to the control room to independently verify that the shutdown was proceeding safely. The plant’s senior resident inspector is working with plant staff to diagnose the problem.Early warning alarm shuts down at nuclear plant
July 16, 2013Panels of alarms designed to quickly warn personnel of operational failures at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station mysteriously shut down at 12:30 a.m. Monday and just as mysteriously restarted at 2:05 a.m.The system failure required Entergy, the Louisiana-based owner and operator of the Pilgrim plant, to report "an unusual event" to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.NRC experts are now trying to determine the cause of the failure. Meanwhile the plant is operating at full power, prompting an outcry from area nuclear watchdogs who say the operation should be shut down until the mystery of the alarm system failure is solved.Mary Lampert, a Duxbury resident and director of Pilgrim Watch, said her anti-nuclear organization plans to send a statement to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission today."Until they go over it with a fine-tooth comb and until they can say 100 percent that it's fixed, they have no business staying operational," Lampert said.The alarms, called "annunciators," are the first warning but not the only warning of a malfunction, said NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan. "They are there to call prompt attention to an issue, but plants also have gauges and other means for personnel to monitor, plus they have operators out in the field," he said.
The Vilas was closed to vehicular traffic in 2009, and residents are unhappy plans to repair or replace it have been deferred. At the time it was closed, a reported average of 4,600 vehicles crossed the structure every day and village residents now say businesses are suffering because the traffic from Walpole, N.H., has been cut off.
Ours is 10,000 a day...
"CPM Constructors, of Freeport, Maine was the general contractor for the $2.9 million temporary bridge project. Morrill Construction, of North Haverhill, New Hampshire performed site work."The Lebanon-Harford bridge was shutdown on runaway cancerous and dangerous corrosion. Do you get the feeling they need to call the bridge unsafe before they begin to plan for a replacement?
White River Junction — A vacant apartment building at the corner of Route 4 and Prospect Street was mostly torn down Thursday to make way for construction of a new permanent bridge between White River Junction and West Lebanon.
The bidding period for companies interested in the bridge project closed yesterday afternoon, and once New Hampshire awards the contract, work is expected to be completed by October 2015 at an estimated cost of $10 million.A temporary bridge was installed in 2009 after the existing span built in 1936 was closed due to unsafe levels of corrosion.A dust cloud rose Thursday while workers from Nott’s Excavating, of White River Junction, used a backhoe to raze the vacant three-story, 3,400-square-foot former apartment building that was built in 1920.
Old mattresses, Star Trek posters, dated appliances and building materials accumulated into an unsightly pile of rubble. All that stood last night was the corner of the building nearest the closed bridge.
Removal Of 10-Ton Weight Posting Will Allow Truck Traffic On Connecticut River Bridge Until A New Bridge Can Be Built
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a newly constructed temporary bridge carrying US Route 4 over the Connecticut River between Lebanon, New Hampshire (Bridge Street) and Hartford, Vermont (Maple Street) opened today to traffic.
The temporary bridge allows full legal loads. It also has a sidewalk open for pedestrian traffic.
The 390-foot long US Route 4 Bridge was built in 1936 and rebuilt in 1976. It is a State of New Hampshire "Red List" bridge, with more frequent inspections required due to known deficiencies. The bridge was posted at a 10-Ton load limit in July of 2008 that restricted heavy truck traffic. It has now been closed to all traffic and motorists are being detoured onto the temporary bridge. Current plans are to advertise for a permanent bridge replacement in 2012.

Us Route 4 Bridge Over The Connecticut RiverThe New Hampshire Department of Transportation and the Vermont Agency of Transportation announce the planned restriction of heavy truck traffic and the use of alternating one-way traffic on the US Route 4 Bridge over the Connecticut River connecting Lebanon, New Hampshire (Bridge Street) and Hartford (White River Junction), Vermont (Maple Street) on Monday, July 21, 2008.This truck restriction will be in place pending further inspections and evaluation of the bridge. Initial evaluations and analysis of the bridge have found continued and significant corrosion on the steel structure. Depending on what further inspections show, it is possible the bridge will be posted to a 10-ton load capacity to protect public safety.Signs will be in place beginning July 18 alerting motorists to the trucking restrictions and advising trucks to seek alternate routes, including the Interstate 89 bridges over the Connecticut River.The 390-foot long US Route 4 Bridge was built in 1936 and rebuilt in 1976. It is a State of New Hampshire â€œRed Listâ€ bridge, with more frequent inspections required due to known deficiencies. It is scheduled to be replaced in 2010.
So what about a point system...where we could figure out per population, say if Concord crimes are worse than Keene...
How about a point system where we could evaluated the outcome of a court case...are the sentences or found not guilty amount comparable ?
