Anti-nuclear protesters blocked a gate to the Seabrook atomic power plant for about three hours Saturday before police arrested 110 people. The protesters were warned by a plant official to leave because they were trespassing, but they refused. Some demonstrators walked to school buses, vans and police cruisers, but others were dragged. The arrested demonstrators were charged with criminal trespass and were freed on their own recognizance. It was the ninth demonstration at the reactor this year.

Jonathan Toews and Zdeno Chara were pushing each other for position in front of the net as the Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook scored the winning goal in overtime in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night. As the Blackhawks escaped TD Garden with a 6-5 overtime victory and a 2-2 series tie, Toews added a verbal shove, captain to captain. "There's certain ways you can expose him," Toews said of the Bruins' 6-foot-9 defenseman. "I think the dumpings that we made were going to his side.

Federal regulators on Wednesday removed a major obstacle to a low-power testing license for the Seabrook, N.H., nuclear plant, perhaps the biggest milestone in the 20-year history of the financially fragile reactor that is a decade behind schedule and billions over budget. Seabrook could receive the long-sought permit, which allows testing at up to 5% of capacity, as early as late next week if the Nuclear Regulatory Commission does not impose a stay on the license pending court appeals.

The NHL suspended the Ducks' James Wisniewski for eight games Thursday, signaling its seriousness about hits that can cause head injuries after Wisniewski left Chicago's Brent Seabrook dazed and crumpled on the ice Wednesday night at the Honda Center. Seabrook did not return to the game and was not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Kings. The Blackhawks declined to say whether he has a concussion, only repeating that he has an "upper-body" injury. Ducks General Manager Bob Murray reacted sharply to the decision, saying Wisniewski deserved to be suspended, but not for so many games.

In the first financial default by a major investor-owned electrical utility since the Great Depression, Public Service Co. of New Hampshire, principal owner of the controversial Seabrook nuclear plant, said Tuesday that Seabrook costs will force it to skip more than $37.5 million in interest and principal payments due on $800 million of its bonds starting this week.

The Seabrook nuclear power plant began its first atomic chain reaction Tuesday, a pivotal event for a $6-billion project after years of delays, cost overruns and protests made it a focal point of the anti-nuclear movement. Seabrook operators started sustained nuclear fission reaction in the plant's 100 tons of uranium fuel at 5:23 p.m., officials said. Completed in July, 1986, Seabrook received a federal low-power license on May 26, a day after a federal appeals court refused to block the tests.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said it will issue a low-power test license for the Seabrook, N.H., nuclear reactor today after a federal appeals court rejected a last-gasp plea by opponents. A U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to impose an emergency stay on low-power tests at Seabrook, a $6-billion plant that is already a decade behind schedule and billions over budget. The court order had been sought by Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis and others who have tried to block low-power testing.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission today removed a major stumbling block to licensing the Seabrook, N.H., nuclear power plant for low-power testing. The commission, on a 4-1 vote, ruled that a new utility-drafted evacuation plan for the six Massachusetts towns that fall within Seabrook's 10-mile emergency zone could be considered in lieu of a state proposal.

A federal judge issued a contempt order Friday and threatened to fine or jail some 2,000 laborers at the Seabrook nuclear power plant unless they end a three-day-old wildcat strike. The strikers, who are protesting work conditions and layoffs, defied an earlier injunction ordering them back to work, and have refused to cross picket lines at the main gate of the reactor construction site.

The Ducks probably can't win this struggle, but they still have some fight in them. After a feisty 4-2 win over Chicago on Wednesday at the Honda Center, they have beaten the top two teams in the Western Conference in consecutive games. But even after the wins over San Jose and Chicago, they are still eight points out of a playoff spot with 13 games left — and four teams between them and eighth-place Detroit. Add another concern after defenseman James Wisniewski's second-period hit on Brent Seabrook knocked the dazed Chicago defenseman out of the game with what was termed — in one of hockey's euphemisms — "an upper-body injury."

The appointment of an Englishwoman as editor of The New Yorker in 1992 provoked not only screams from readers and writers but amusement among connoisseurs of irony. When The New Yorker was created in 1925 as a magazine of wit and sophistication, it owed a great deal to the English tradition of learning worn lightly and tailored to a thoroughbred frame.

At the end of World War II, thousands of Japanese Americans freed from detention camps came to this farming village in southern New Jersey hoping to rebuild their lives. Some left after earning enough money at a large vegetable farm and packing plant to move back to the West Coast. But several hundred remained and left a lasting mark on this bucolic community about 36 miles south of Philadelphia.

Police arrested about 100 people today as they tried to block employees from entering the Seabrook nuclear plant, which is scheduled to begin its first nuclear reaction later this week. Toay's arrests followed a weekend of demonstrations at the long-delayed plant that led to the arrest of 627 protesters on Sunday. The latest round of protests at the $6-billion reactor was prompted by plans for low-power nuclear testing at Seabrook later this week.

Opponents of the Seabrook nuclear power plant said they have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the plant's license. Seabrook received its full-power license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in March, 1990, and that license was upheld by an appeals court in January. A Seabrook spokesman said issues raised by the opponents had been already resolved by the court of appeals.
