Letters to the Editor

Don’t suspend disbelief

The first oil field was discovered at Prudhoe Bay on March 12, 1968, by Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) and Exxon.

Do you think this is funny?

Another bench has disappeared from the bus route to and from Vineyard Haven.

Please return my photos

To the person who picked up the wrong photos from Mosher's over the weekend, or Monday, could you please return them as soon as possible.

To make cycling safer

I offer heartfelt condolences to all those affected by the recent tragic cycling accident in Vineyard Haven.

Trimming the old fashioned way – sensitively

Thank you to the town of Chilmark Highway Department for the beautiful work they have been doing clearing the North Road.

Make room for cyclists in Tisbury

Without your help

Thank you to everyone who helped put out the boat house fire on July 12.

Rules are rules, sometimes silly

It is time everyone took a good look at the picturesque town of West Tisbury with its farmlands, lush greenery, flowers for sale, homemade road signs and unique businesses — quaint little town with many distractions to the eye, beautiful flowers growing in our greenhouses, chairs hanging from trees, balloons pointing the way to a summer BBQ, freshly baked pies for the taking, and flags outside of businesses.

Traffic lights needed

To the Editor:Given the traffic and accidents on Martha's Vineyard due to increased traffic in the summer, I do not understand why traffic lights are not installed.

Beware when shopping for electricity

To the Editor:Many consumers on the Cape and Martha's Vineyard have received an offer from Dominion Retail to "Lock-in a Low, Fixed, Electricity Price.

Disappointing visit to the new ER

I am very proud of our community for coming together to build a "better hospital.

A rebuttal

In a letter in the July 15 MVTimes, entitled "In response to the POINT advertisement", Paul Pimentel, in reference to the POINT advertisement of July 1, complains how tiresome it is to have to set the record straight, and then, in the guise of doing so, goes on to mislead your readers in a number of particulars.

Chappy bike path unneeded

On Saturday morning, about 50 Chappaquiddickians gathered to hear Chappaquiddick Bike Path advocate Dan Dulaski, funded by the Chappaquiddick Path Committee, give the third presentation of his plan for a two-way side bike path along the north side of the Chappaquiddick Road.

Amazing coverage

Just a note to say that the coverage of the harbor fire was simply amazing.

Building a sustainable world

The Vineyard Youth Summit for Sustainable Development was a success — thanks to so many.

A community that cares and acts

It is with a heavy heart and great pride that I write this letter about the tragic bicycle accident last week in Tisbury.

Gratitude abounds
