Got a minute?
Here’s what’s happening on Martha’s Vineyard today.
On this day in 1970, Bobby Orr scored the game-winning goal in the Stanley Cup Finals. The iconic photo of that goal, which shows Orr flying through the air like hockey’s version of Superman, is etched in the minds of people of a certain age. It was taken by Boston Record-American photographer Ray Lussier. Today is National Shrimp Day. Also, watch for reports from Aquinnah town meeting tonight — the sixth and final town to hold their annual town meeting on the Island. If your friend sent you this, sign up for yourself here.

Parallel universe
Remember when the streetscape plan was approved in Oak Bluffs and the sky was falling? Well, the project is nearly complete on Circuit Ave., and the early returns are that the sidewalk and beautification project is a hit. The street is more pedestrian friendly and people are actually dealing with the parallel parking. Reporters Eunki Seonwoo and Abigail Rosen went out and talked to lots of people about it and have this story.
Island innovator
Ben Robinson’s efforts to raise awareness of climate change are no secret on Martha’s Vineyard. Now, they’re well known across the country and in other parts of the world. Robinson was recognized by the Clinton Foundation in collaboration with Island Innovation for his efforts to create the Climate Action Task Force of the Martha’s Vineyard Commission. Robinson, ever humble, said it’s too early in the battle against sea level rise for any pats on the back. Reporter Abigail Rosen has this story.
In memory of Josephine Tucker
A rec room at Island Elderly Housing (IEH) has been dedicated to the late Josephine Tucker, who resided there during the end of her life and would staunchly advocate for improvements for the elderly housing community. Residents of IEH got to check out new exercise equipment and arts and crafts tables during a ribbon-cutting ceremony dedicated to Tucker’s life and memory. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo attended the event and has the news.

Quote of the Day
"The seed was planted then. It wasn’t the right time then, it wasn’t the time in my life and my career. I didn’t understand what it took to run. This is something I always thought about as the next step in my career."–Retiring Oak Bluffs Police Chief Erik Blake who considered a run for sheriff in 2016 and is running for the office in 2022

Hot Topic Comment
Dana Nunes commented on the story about the West Tisbury Farmers Market. "The Farmers Market belongs at the Ag Hall. Moving it back to the pain-in-the-ass congestion of The Grange makes no sense. Maybe I’m just old. I remember an island where we tried to figure out ways to help each other, not look for ways to rule and regulate our neighbors into non-existence."

Hot Topic Letter
Michael Bellissimo congratulated Carly Simon on being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. "I was proud to vote for Carly and look forward to her induction in LA in November. Thank you Carly for your gifts of song and spirit. If there were an MVY Hall of Fame, you'd be in it too!"
Today: Oh yes, I’m all over this one like feta on a pita: Online Cooking the Mediterranean Way. Look at that Tommy Brennan pic of a plate of goodness. Whew. Vineyard Haven library. 5:30 pm. –Connie Berry

Sometimes I wish I could highlight three events on the same night. Heck, let’s do it. There’s this
Food Waste Reduction and Redirection event at Camp Jabberwocky that sounds interesting. 6:30 pm. Wasting food is annoying. Then, Andy Herr has an Open Mic Night at Island Music. 6 pm. –C.B.
Tomorrow: Try Saltwater Wednesdays with the Edgartown library and learn how to gut a fish or shuck an oyster. I could slurp an oyster right now. 4 pm. –C.B.

A remarkable story
The Vineyard is home to a strong and long standing Jewish community, but just how far back did the traditions and culture arrive? When did the Jewish religion become prominent here? A new exhibit at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum called "They Planted the Seeds: Creating Jewish Community on Martha’s Vineyard," illustrates the remarkable story of Jewish migrants who came to make a home on the Island, and the struggles and triumphs they experienced. Read Abby Remer’s story on the enthralling exhibit here.
