Got a minute?
Here’s what’s happening on Martha’s Vineyard today.
On this day 78 years ago, U.S. and allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, in the largest amphibious military operation in history — a turning point in World War II. It’s better known as D-Day. Today is also National Eyewear Day, National Yo-Yo Day, and National Drive-In Movie Day. Something for everyone. If your friend sent you this, sign up for yourself here.

Celebrating success
The 15 members of the Class of ‘22 at Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School were celebrated Sunday with a commencement ceremony at the school. All of the students were recognized for their individual contributions by the Charter School during the ceremony. (These kids really do some interesting stuff in their time on the West Tisbury campus.)  Reporter Abigail Rosen has this story.
Records runaround
The Times has been in a battle to get records from Dukes County Sheriff Robert Ogden’s office from 2011. While Ogden was not the sheriff at the time, he is in control of the records and hired attorney Jack Collins to fight the release of the visitor logs. Once the state Supervisor of Records asked to see the records, Collins reported to the supervisor that the records could not be located. Reporter Rich Saltzberg has the details.

Changing suit
After the MVRHS school committee announced plans to file an appeal against the Oak Bluffs planning board, there were many folks who called on the committee to rethink that position. Well, they have in a way. They’ve rethought which counsel to hire for the appeal. The first attorney had an apparent conflict, which the committee refused to specify. Instead, at a rare Friday midday meeting, the committee voted to rescind his hiring and to seek the help of another attorney instead. Reporter Lucas Thors has this story.

Quote of the Day
"Twenty-five years ago, the idea of a Charter School in West Tisbury was a bold experiment."–Pete Steedman, director of the Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School, at Sunday’s graduation ceremony

Hot Topic Comment
Jane Norton commented on Jonathan Burke’s "On My Way" essay. "Watching the joy of a dog on trail walk is an opportunity to reset one’s mood and attitude. Dogs are simply delighted to be walking, smelling, observing, discovering, and sharing the experience with their companion(s). It doesn’t matter where they’re going, or if they ever arrive at the destination – it’s the moment that matters."

Hot Topic Letter
Zeke Vought wrote to say the majority was not heard during the artificial surface debate. "Thank goodness someone is stepping in to hold this misguided, biased cancellation of a project to task. This is wanted by the majority of the public, as well as (generalization) most people who have ever played on these fields. The same thing has been done for these fields since it was installed. it’s obvious by the history grass isn’t maintainable."
Today: Meet some of the nicest people on the planet at Bingo at the American Legion. Every Monday. Bring a snack to share at the break and they’ll be even nicer. Doors open at 6, play begins at 6:30 pm. –Connie Berry

It is gorgeous out there, although a nice heavy rain might clear up this pollen problem at least for a little while. But you go on and take advantage of it and get out there while it’s pretty perfect. Visit any of the 70 Land Bank properties. Anytime. –C.B.
Tomorrow: The Neighborhood Convention meets at the First Congregational Church of West Tisbury for fellowship and a program about the Island Food Pantry. Masks are recommended. Bring a bag lunch. 11 am. –C.B.

(Off)shore winners
In this season, where we are celebrating so many different folks who have graduated from college and from high school, there is another program worth recognizing. The Martha’s Vineyard Center for Education and Training and Bristol County Community College collaborated to offer a certificate program for those interested in entering an emerging field. The ceremony was held at Nomans in Oak Bluffs. Reporter Rich Saltzberg has that story.
