Letters to the Editor

Let’s ask about wind factories’ effects on birds and sea creatures

I am looking forward with great interest to attending the Wind Energy Forum sponsored by POINT on August 8.

Nice but short of caregivers

My husband was recently admitted to the new Martha's Vineyard Hospital on two separate occasions.

A cave man contest

To the Editor:I am a high school student, and this letter was written to the Oak Bluffs harbormaster.

Change is slow, but it’s possible

Immigration and a poor national and world economy are two crucial issues which affect people on‑Island, off‑Island and around the world, but here on a small Island the economic fight for too few jobs takes place in a small area where personal privacy is at a minimum.

Without your help, this would not have been possible

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation for the support and financial assistance you provided to my American family, the Espindles, to bring me back to America from Afghanistan.

Testimony to Vineyard House’s good works

I am writing this letter to make our community aware of Vineyard House, an organization that may not be widely known, but whose existence is so crucial — not only to the individual that is personally struggling with drug and alcohol addictions, but also to the people in the lives of the afflicted.

New hospital, something missing

This is a copy of a letter I sent to Tim Walsh more than three weeks ago and have not gotten a response.

A summer highlight

One of the music highlights of the summer for me is attending the annual Opera Fest concert, held last Friday at Union Chapel in Oak Bluffs, where a group of teenage women and men trained by artistic director Claudette Peterson presented staged and sung arias from a diverse selection of operas.

Steadfast friends of the Edgartown Library

On behalf of the Edgartown Library trustees, I would like to thank the Edgartown Library Foundation for another splendid Legacy of Learning event earlier this month.

The other side of the story

Please help reduce airplane noise

We have been longtime residents of West Tisbury, and the air traffic in the summer of 2010 seems quite a bit more than in past years.

So many came to help

Don’t let careless dog owners ruin the fun

A couple of weeks ago, while visiting Lambert's Cove Beach for the first time with her two friendly golden retrievers, one of my friend's dogs was badly bitten by a dog that has been known to be unreliable.

Just the occasion for your generosity for Haiti

Just over six months ago Haiti suffered a devastating earthquake.

But for them, I would not be here

Regarding the 30th anniversary of the Gannon and Benjamin Marine Railway, I must say, if it weren't for Nat and Ross, I probably would not have stayed here after my first visit to Martha's Vineyard on a yacht in 1984.

A business that will be missed

I'm so sad to learn that Vineyard Photo is closing.

MVC sets conditions, but are they enforced?

When the Field Club in Katama sought approval from the Martha's Vineyard Commission, the owners offered up many conditions in addition to those set by the commission in their final decision to approve the project.

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?
