The Island, although proudly maintaining aloofness from the main when the country is at peace, is one with her when danger threatens.

The fog rolled out and summer rolled in late last week. The relentless chill of spring has finally shifted.

History, I like to think, is a larger way of looking at life. It is a source of strength, of inspiration. It is about who we are and what we stand...

The solstice is well past, and summer, hardly begun, will be sliding ever so gently down hill.

Slow sun pulls long days over July. The marsh holds its breath and soaks in warm water. ner


Letters to the Editor

As I read newspapers and scathing letters from the public regarding the dismissal of hospital CEO Joe Woodin, I was dismayed at the tone.

Thank you Julia Wells and Mary Breslauer for a superbly professional work of journalism regarding the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital governance issue.

I believe it is a shame that many people that visit this beautiful Island do not care enough to clean up after themselves.
