Winter arrived early this year, rolling in late last week on a polar express as if delivered straight from the North Pole.

Twas Christmastime so Santa Claus was readying his pack, And filling it with candy canes and holly and knickknacks.

From the December 21, 1934 edition of the Vineyard Gazette:

Affordable housing has been part of the land bank’s planning since 1989, when it first adopted a housing policy.

Plans are nothing. Planning is everything. Dwight Eisenhower said that in a moment of Zen. It must have been Christmastime.

But for the temperatures outdoors it could have been August last weekend in Edgartown. Or July.


Letters to the Editor

As of yesterday, our government has betrayed Muslim soldiers and interpreters.

I live on an Island that will be significantly impacted by sea level rise and extreme weather as a result of climate change.

I second Paul Doherty’s motion re: nips.
