A story in the Gazette last Friday on the Vineyard schools superintendent’s proposed budget gave an incorrect date for the upcoming meeting of the all-Island school committee. The committee meets on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 6 p.m. in the regional high school library to vote on the budget. The Gazette regrets the error.
A story in last week’s Gazette about the opening of Tilton’s Market in Vineyard Haven reported incorrectly on the location of the market, which is on Cromwell Lane. The story also missnamed Capt. Owen H. Tilton, who is the great-great-grandfather of the owners, as well as Bob Tilton, who is their father, and Tuesday, who is the village cat. The Gazette regrets the errors.
A caption in the Friday, Sept. 28 Gazette that appeared beneath a photograph of a charter fishing group aboard the Tomahawk II misidentified three people. The correct identification, left to right, is Charles Ogletree, Christine Dunn, Buddy Vanderhoop, Thomas Menino, Paul Foster and Cecily Foster.
A photo caption accompanying a story in last Friday’s Gazette about five Island women who traveled to North Carolina to advocate civil rights misidentified several of the women. From left to right, they are Polly Woollcott Murphy; Nancy Hodgson, later known as Nancy Whiting; Peg Lillienthal; Virginia Mazer; and Nancy Smith. The story also misspelled Mrs. Mazer’s name.
A column about trophy houses that appeared on the Commentary Page in Friday’s Gazette contained a historical inaccuracy. The chateau Chenonceaux was acquired by Henri II in 1526 in payment for back taxes and was immediately turned over to Dianne de Poitiers, who would be his mistress for 23 years. The Gazette regrets the error.
A story in the Oct. 17 edition of the Gazette about short-term borrowing for the West Tisbury town hall renovation project contained an inaccuracy. An attempt by town officials to sell short-term bond anticipation notes was postponed, but did not fail. The Gazette regrets the error.
A story in Tuesday’s Gazette about Martha’s Vineyard Community Services reported incorrectly on a planned crisis stabilization unit for Islanders with substance abuse or mental health problems. Community Services is planning the unit with the help of the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, but the unit will not be located at the hospital. The Gazette regrets the error.
