I could not help but feel relief and a spark of hope as we turned our sights to what lies ahead.

Hold off on those quail orders for now.

There has always been a conflict between preserving the values of the past and implementing our perceptions of the future.

I was mowing the grass on a cloudless Sunday, when a cloud darkened the ground below me. That’s odd, I thought. Rogue cloud?

I am so saddened to report the passing of Chappaquiddick resident Allyson Getsinger on Oct. 18 after a 10-month battle against cancer.

A celebration of the life of Richard Knight, Jr. is planned for June 19 next summer.

This past Monday was Indigenous’ Peoples Day. Let us for a moment, remember the history of Chappaquiddick, an island named for the Wampanoag word tchepi-aquidenet, meaning “separate island”.

Just a reminder, when the derby ends so does the summer schedule on the Chappy Ferry.

So, let’s say that you are one of the folks who have decided to stay on the islands this winter.

The Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby began this week and runs to Saturday, Oct. 17.
