Got a minute?
Here’s what’s happening on Martha’s Vineyard today.
Today in 1965, civil rights activists and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. began the march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala. It’s also Henry Ossian Flipper’s birthday. He was an American soldier, former slave, and first African American to graduate from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1877. If your friend sent you this, sign up for yourself here.

New leadership
In a statement released this week, Camp Jabberwocky announced that the organization has welcomed a new executive director. After former director Liza Gallagher stepped down late last year, the camp’s Board of Trustees launched a nationwide search to find a suitable successor, eventually tapping Adam Perry for the role. Perry was among around 100 candidates considered for the job. Here’s that story.

Quote of the Day
On the Island’s current prescribed burns, Karen Lombard, director of stewardship and restoration at the Nature Conservancy said, “It’s a great habitat management tool for plants and animals, and for people too.”

Hot Topic Comment
Doreen Kinsman commented on Tisbury’s effort to ban commercial timeshares.
“Perhaps our real estate companies who sell island properties would be the first ones aware of off-island conglomerates buying up what could be homes for our workers, and therefore could then alert the town boards of this offensive purchasing which deprives needy folks who actually live and are employed here to find shelter.Too many of our most essential workers are leaving because of desperately lacking housing for their families, causing the year round population confronted with an unexpected quandary when crises arrive or teachers and nurses are wanted.”

Hot Topic Letter
In his letter to the editor titled “Shunning of Martha’s Vineyard’s most famous lawyers,” Dave Segal writes about Alan Dershowitz: “As the weather gets warmer and folks who vacation on the Vineyard think ahead to get-togethers and whom to invite to parties, I am reminded of all the stories from 2018 and 2022, etc., of a certain Harvard Law School professor emeritus and his constant bellyaching re: not being invited to gatherings and to speak while he is so principled.”
