Beach access
A new nonprofit on Chappaquiddick has been launched with the idea of improving communication with The Trustees of Reservations, which controls a majority of the accessible shoreline on the Island. At a meeting on Monday, the Edgartown select board said they were supportive of the efforts on behalf of the community. Reporter Abigail Rosen has this story.
No Ms.’d opportunity
The Ms. Foundation held its annual event on the Island earlier this month and it took on new meaning in light of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Roe v. Wade case. As news intern Natalie Aymond reported, the Ms. Foundation organization brings domestic attention to women’s issues and insight into economic, social, and cultural change. You can read more about the recent forum here.

Banking on deer
Youth on the Island could soon be given an opportunity to hunt on Land Bank property. The Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank Commission is considering a proposal by the Land Bank’s superintendent Harrison Kisiel, and while they reacted favorably to it, they want a more detailed plan before taking a vote. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo has this story.
The West Tisbury select board meets at 4:30 pm Wednesday. Remote access. Here is the agenda.

The All Island School Committee meets at 6:30 pm Wednesday. Remote access. Here is the agenda.

Quote of the Day
"My goal is to take the most difficult issues on the Island we’re facing and that divides us and create programming around that. So, probably anyone on the two poles of any issue would not want to come to Stillpoint. But, anybody who’s willing to take a step toward the middle to explore other people’s points of view, they’re going to find a lot of programming at Stillpoint."–Thomas Bena on the philosophy behind Stillpoint

Hot Topic Comment
It seems everyone is talking about Beach Road Weekend. Don Keller responded to someone complaining about the noise. "I live about a mile away and could hear those booming base lines also. I was really upset about it also, as it was drowning out the lovely sound of my neighbors leaf blower."

Hot Topic Letter
Annie Cook laments how the Vineyard has changed.  "I hope more of us can find a way to cultivate some of the unpretentious grooviness that made the Vineyard I grew up in feel socially safe. We can all do this by being welcoming to people we don’t already know, instead of rejecting them, not buying into one-sided gossip and character assassination (I mean, if you purport to be a 'progressive,' it’s not a good look), and putting less of a focus on gaining power over others. We can practice humility and kindness, in the face of the exceptionally difficult global reality we all face."
Today: Cleaveland House Poets and the M.V. Poets Collective head to Featherstone for this outdoor Poetry Reading. I like to use a little anaphora when I write poetry, don’t you? 5 pm. –Connie Berry

Beach Road Weekend may be over but you can still catch great music at the Loft. The Outskirts, with Jessie Leaman, Jodie Treloar Samson, Delanie Pickering, Jim Orr, and Chris Seidel, open for Jelly Roll Horns. 8 pm. –C.B.

Tomorrow: Meet my friends at the Vineyard Haven library for Walk the Chop and walk or run the loop. I wish someone could do this for me, then hand over the benefits. I hear it just doesn’t work that way. 3 pm. –C.B.

A tale to tell
Islander and Hungarian native Gaston Vadasz was born in Budapest during World War II in 1944. He spent two years hidden from the Nazis by a kind family in a small peasant village on the Danube, and escaped over the border at 12 years old with his mother into Austria, where his long journey to the U.S. was just beginning. Vadasz chronicles his incredible life in his recent memoir, "A Glass Always Half Full: A Journey of Hope, Dreams, and Reality." Read writer Abby Remer’s piece on Vadasz and his harrowing tale here.
