Unhappy on Chappy
Some residents of Chappaquiddick are upset at cameras that were set up near their mailboxes and have demanded the town have them removed. Meanwhile, during an investigation into one of the cameras being damaged, police found they also recorded audio, which is illegal in Massachusetts. That's Robert and Dana Strayton from a civil dispute they've had with their neighbor over a cell tower on Chappy. Reporter Abigail Rosen sorts through the dispute here.
Who’s running?
There are three people running for the one-year term left vacant by the death of West Tisbury select board member Kent Healy. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo spoke to the three candidates — James Klingensmith, Jessica Miller, and Chris Lyons — about their reasons for running for office in advance of the upcoming town election. You can read about their backgrounds here.

Hot Topic Comment
Susan Desmarais with a word of caution for those organizing an Islandwide Easter egg hunt. "Please be careful to hide eggs where dogs can’t get to them. Chocolate can be poisonous to dogs."

Hot Topic Letter
Mary Jane Williams, chair of the Dukes County Health Council, wrote to support the housing bank proposal that will soon be before voters. "Housing insecurity on Martha’s Vineyard has been an issue for many years. As an Island, Martha’s Vineyard is in a particularly difficult position when it comes to affordable housing resources and permanent shelters. Affordable housing is essential to the health and wellness of individuals and families, and is one of the most important determinants of a healthy community. Lack of affordable housing undermines the ability of individuals to succeed, if they are consumed by concern with their fundamental survival."

Discovery through art
Michael Rottman’s latest exhibit at the Feldman Family Art Space is all about discovery — within himself, and within everyone that views his work. In a unique and experimental twist to abstractness, Rottman didn’t paint these pieces with an agenda; he searched his subconscious and let his brush do the work (with a little help from meditation). In a fluid process, Rottman pulls dormant memories and experiences from his mind and projects them in oil and acrylic onto canvas. Read Abby Remer’s recent story on this fascinating and talented artist.
