Carolyn White Spengler, beloved wife of Arthur A. Spengler Jr. and longtime resident of Martha’s Vineyard, died on June 30.
In the latest battle over an Army Corps of Engineers project to dredge Menemsha Channel, the Chilmark selectmen have refused to allow dredging in Menemsha Harbor for the 2015–2016 season.
Born and raised Menemsha fisherman Capt. Jeff Lynch said he relied on his fishing skills gained on the Island when he caught a 700-pound bluefin tuna in Cape Cod Bay last weekend. The giant fish was shipped to Japan to be sold at a fish market.
