To the Editor: The First Congregational Church of West Tisbury would like to express its deep appreciation to Mad Martha’s, Vineyard Cash and Carry, and Vineyard Gardens for their generous support of our second annual Blueberry Festival. Thanks to you and to a veritable army of dedicated volunteers, the event was a terrific success. Many […]
To the Editor: As I wrapped up my year as the alternative education science teacher at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, I polled my students and did my own inventory of things that had gone well and things I wanted to change for next year. A goal of the MVRHS alternative education program is to […]
To me, this bench is special. It is something that I think about for the 49 weeks of the year when I’m not on Martha’s Vineyard. It is a majestic throne that overlooks a water kingdom. It exhilarates me through the peace and serenity that recharge my batteries each year.
To the Editor: With love and honor we placed bird feeders at our son’s resting place at Oak Grove Cemetery in Vineyard Haven. He loved life, family, and his feathered friends. You are so evil and disrespectful, robbing us of the good we did for our Dennis in his passing and we who mourn him […]
When the Island is this packed, we are all inches away from an accident. Please, be compassionate and care about each other whether we are on foot, on bikes, mopeds, boats or ordering dinner from a tired waitstaff. I’m very lucky to be alive and not seriously injured.

Last season another flag was stolen. While I don’t have any proof, I doubt that a local resident stole […]
To the Editor: My family and I have been coming to Martha’s Vineyard for decades. My sister and brother-in-law live here. This is the first year I have seen so much plastic litter on the beach. I find it incredibly sad. Somehow, I naively hoped that Martha’s Vineyard could be exempt from the global plastic […]
To the Editor: This letter is directed to readers who may be cruising in Edgartown Harbor this summer and wondering what happened to the iconic flag that flew in front of Walter Cronkite’s home for as long as many of us can remember. Sadly, the flagpole met its demise when it tangled with hurricane Arthur […]
To the Editor: On July 2, I was leaving the Edgartown Stop & Shop with an overloaded basket of groceries. As I was navigating the ramp into the parking lot, the basket capsized and all my purchases were strewn across the ground. Five wonderful people, unknown to me, swiftly gathered up my purchases, replaced them […]
