Oyster Creek Nuclear Plant Problems and Thanksgiving Weather – Monday’s Roundup

Print More

The Oyster Creek nuclear plant shut down temporarily again this weekend. Newsworks reports that the nation’s oldest nuclear plant had a problem with its turbine control system. It’s maybe a good time to revisit this letter from NJ’s Sierra Club Director Jeff Tittel which said the frequent incidents at the plant show it should close before its scheduled 2020 shutdown.

Everyone is gearing up for or winding down to the Thanksgiving holiday, which is shaping up to be warmer than today, at least, although there’s a chance of a few showers. Dan Skeldon has the forecast.

On Friday morning we sat down at Essl’s Dugout on Route 40 to talk on Facebook Live with Lynda Cohen of BreakingAC.com about crime problems in the area and the 10-year anniversary of the murders of four prostitutes in West Atlantic City. You can watch a video replay of that chat here. You can also read our interview with Kellie, a mother who has lost two sons to gun violence, here.
