The donkey tale we needed

To the Editor, "Bray-ve souls: Donkeys go on the lam", on the donkey escape deserved the front-page attention it received. To learn that two curious Vineyard donkeys ventured out of their confines into the world...

Made us proud

To the Editor: Wow! Once again, we're so impressed by our neighbors, the people of Martha's Vineyard, and their response to the recent dropping off of Venezuelans to our Island. What a sad statement for...

Gym should be spared to save money

Wrong decision not to allow ballot vote

To the Editor: Dear Members, Tisbury select board, Tisbury School committee, and citizens of Tisbury, there is no question that Tisbury needs to address a school expansion. This letter is not written to protest the...

Say no to the school project

To the Editor:  In the emotionally charged atmosphere surrounding the financial developments of the Tisbury School project, it has been a go-to response to revisit the 2018 “scenario.” This may be all well and good,...

Responding to the noise

To the Editor: Several recent Letters to the Editor complained about noise levels in West Tisbury. I am a resident of the town, and have been for some time.  I previously lived in New York City,...

Passing of the bookmark

West Tisbury boards won’t listen

Be mindful of neighbors

Protect the circus animals

To the Editor:  I am writing to ask that everyone who cares about animals speak up for them today. Please, contact your representatives and ask them to vote for state Bill S.2251. S.2251 is an...
