Rights from wrong
Islanders, organized by rising high school senior Graysen Kirk Linn, rallied on Saturday at Five Corners. The "Bans Off Our Bodies" rally was similar to events held across the country on Saturday. Our news intern Natalie Aymond was there with Eunki Seonwoo to get reactions from those gathered about the Supreme Court rulings. Here’s the story and photos from the event.
Suit settled
The Town of Tisbury and members of the police department have settled a suit with former police Sgt. Kindia Roman, who alleged she was discriminated against as a member of the department. The details of the settlement are not included in the court records, but this is the second suit the department has been forced to settle with former employees. Roman also alleged in her lawsuit that Sgt. Max Sherman worked to torpedo a job prospect with the Walpole Police Department. Reporter Rich Saltzberg has this story.

Last day
We have a couple of final days to report today. At MVRHS, two students graduated from the Navigator program. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo has that story. Meanwhile, Monday was the last day of school on Martha’s Vineyard. Our news intern Natalie Aymond was on hand at Tisbury School to hear the joyful noise of students leaving the building and the knowing waves of teachers as their young charges left for the summer. Here is her story.
The Oak Bluffs select board meets at 4:30 pm Tuesday at Oak Bluffs Town Hall. Here is the agenda.

Quote of the Day
"Five Corners has always been a communal place to protest. It is a backbone for the Island’s social justice spirit." Graysen Kirk Linn who organized Saturday’s rally in protest of the Supreme Court rulings on abortion

Hot Topic Comment
Maureen Fischer commented on the Supreme Court’s rulings on abortion. "Savita Halappanavar. All of you who don’t support a woman’s right to control her own body need to look up this name, and read her tragic story. And don’t think that what happened to her won’t happen here. Even Ireland, dominated for years by the Catholic Church, has awakened to support and legalize abortion."

Hot Topic Letter
Rita Brown wrote to remind readers that the GI Bill did not treat all returning soldiers equally. "This sweeping bill promised prosperity to veterans. But Black American Veterans did NOT benefit from this GI Bill.  While the bill did not specifically exclude Black American veterans from its benefits, it was structured in such a way to ultimately shut doors for the 1.2 million Black veterans, who had bravely served their country, in segregated ranks."

On the dot
Artist Kate Feiffer loves to create unique and whimsical pen and ink and mixed-media drawings, but there’s much more to the artist’s pieces than just fun little details and playfulness. In her new exhibit currently on display at the M.V. Film Center, "Connect the Dots," Feiffer plays with the idea of connection. Although social media and the internet have connected the world, in many ways we are less connected than ever. Read writer Gwyn McAllister’s story about Feiffer and her creative perspective here.
