The Vineyard has a connection now to two high-profile robberies, as you’ll read in today’s Minute. If your friend sent you this, sign up for yourself here.

Another Vineyard robber?
An Edgartown man has been charged with the armed bank robbery of the Rockland Trust bank in Falmouth. Petar Petyoshin from Edgartown was arrested today at the RMV in Edgartown. There was also a raid on his home today, after the arrest. He’s charged with armed robbery and a slew of other charges, including several counts of kidnapping. Read the story here.
Low interest
While there was some interest in the Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank’s property on 167 Main Street in Edgartown, nobody bid for the building. With the deadline for bids now passed, the Land Bank Commission needs to determine the best way to deal with the property, although there are some disagreements about this. The issue will be explored again after the situation and options have been reviewed by town counsel. Read more here.

The Joys of Oak Bluffs
In this edition of This Was Then, we look at downtown Oak Bluffs, or what was known as "Squash Meadow" for longer than it has been called "Oak Bluffs." You can learn some fascinating history, like this factode: in the late 1800s, a Baptist association threatened to withdraw an annual camp meeting from the Island unless the "filthy condition of Lake Anthony" was addressed. Find out more here.
