Got a minute?

Derby dandy
The Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby continues through Oct. 15, but this year’s event has taken on a bit of a somber tone as a long-time fisherman died in his vehicle at Lobsterville Beach early on in the annual competition. Friends of Jim Wareing have reserved his parking spot with a chair at Lobsterville, and the chair has become a makeshift memorial to the man they called "The Mayor." Reporter Abigail Rosen has this touching story of a life well-lived and well-fished.

Fare share?
The Steamship Authority’s Port Council has endorsed the rate hikes proposed for 2023 by the SSA administration. The proposed increases are across the board with SSA management blaming inflation, particularly an increase in fuel, as the main driver for increases. Meanwhile, the council also discussed regulations that are meant to protect the North Atlantic Right Whale, but could cause significant problems for the ferry schedules. Reporter Rich Saltzberg has this story.
Architecture digested
An 11-year-old’s interest in architecture resulted in a trip from his family’s home in Toronto, Canada, to the Island to view some of the architecture he spotted in a book he purchased with some of his allowance money. While Vivaan Dabral didn’t get to meet the book's author, architect Keith Moskow, he did get a tour of some Island houses and an inside look at Moskow’s designs. Will it all spur a future in architecture? Well, that remains to be seen. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo has the story.

The Tisbury select board meets at 4 pm Wednesday. Remote access. Here is the agenda.

Quote of the Day
"We have to have presented to us renderings of this house that are accurate, visually."–Martha’s Vineyard commissioner Linda Sibley on the proposed plans to replace a house slated for demolition in Tisbury

Hot Topic Comment
David Chin commented on the investigation into Perla, the woman who allegedly lured migrants onto planes with the promise of jobs and housing. "I am impressed that this woman has finally been identified. I hope she will be prosecuted. As a former Republican (who left the GOP after Trump won the primary in 2016), I am deeply ashamed that the party I once loved and admired has fallen so far as to have become completely unrecognizable."

Hot Topic Letter
Michael Hall wrote about the fear of a nuclear war. "Now Ukraine and all of Europe is threatened with nuclear missiles by the new Tsar of Russia and I fear that our leader is from the old school and believes that it is only the threat of retaliation that can prevent nuclear attack, and if it should occur, that we are required to respond in kind without thinking."
Today: Want a say in what happens at the Grange Hall? Then head over to the Community Forum to talk about the building’s future. I’m guessing there are some rules around it, but we all need rules. At least that’s what I've always told my kids. 5:30 pm. –Connie Berry

You may not think of pizza when you think of church, but the Chilmark Community Church’s Pizza Night changes all that. You can bring a dish to share and you can also make a donation. And you can eat pizza. 6 to 7:30 pm. –C.B.!/
Tomorrow: Louisa Gould Gallery in Vineyard Haven hosts its Fresh for Fall Show all day tomorrow. I don’t know whose rooster that is in the photo but I love it. 11 am to 5 pm. –C.B.
