Go with the flow
West William Street will become a one-way street for the duration of the school renovation and addition project in Tisbury. The change is needed to accommodate a new bus dropoff and pickup for the Tisbury School. Meanwhile, students will be having lunch at the nearby American Legion hall each day. Reporter Rich Saltzberg has the details.
Give them shelter
A Martha’s Vineyard Community Services building adjacent to the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School will once again be a homeless shelter operated by Harbor Homes. Though there was some opposition by the school committee, the request was approved pending other approvals from Oak Bluffs boards. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo has this story. Meanwhile, College Board executives heaped praise on the high school’s AP Spanish students for their efforts in assisting with the migrant situation in mid-September. Eunki also has those details.
Beach meets road
Sometimes stories are right under your nose, or in this case right under your feet. We’ve been watching the new bike lanes on Beach Road to see how long it would take either the town or the state to sweep away sand washed into the roadway from the last coastal storm. When we asked both the state and town, they pointed fingers back at each other and in the meantime, the new bike lanes remain treacherous. Editor George Brennan has this story.

Quote of the Day
"It’s a largely white town but … the Island is changing, as is the U.S. population, and it would be nice if we could make town bodies reflect that."
–Loren Ghiglione, a member of the West Tisbury diversity task force, talking about how to attract more board members to town committees

Hot Topic Comment
Marilyn Yas commented on Dick Iacovello’s artwork. "Your work is amazing and has changed throughout the years. I can’t wait to see what happens next."

Hot Topic Letter
Susan Jones wrote to say it’s time to rethink the amount of building being done on Martha’s Vineyard. "We are over burdening and exhausting our fragile, finite and eroding land, and her finite resources. We can’t house everyone who wants to live here. We must take care of our land and resources. Being an Island community, we are in an enviable and frightening position."
Today: I’ve always wanted to go on a Full Moon Owl Prowl at Felix Neck. But if an owl screeched in the dark anywhere near me, I know I’d screech back louder. Owls are beautiful though. A screeching old lady, not so much. 5:45 pm –Connie Berry

Andy Herr brings musicians of all levels together with Open Mic Night at Island Music in Vineyard Haven. I wonder if they take requests. I’m a sucker for a good rendition of "Mony Mony." 6 to 8 pm. –C.B.

Tomorrow: Chef Brent Turner from Rosewater teaches a Cooking Class at the Oak Bluffs library, and this time it’s sweet potato and chickpea coconut curry. He shows you how, then you take home the recipe and try it yourself. 5 pm. –C.B.

Down on the farm
Slough Farm in Edgartown does much more than just raise fresh produce and livestock — they are a support organization that is involved in pretty much all aspects of community development. With their many benevolent food programs, Slough Farm is helping feed the Island, and with their many educational programs, they are helping create an active and involved public. Writer Abby Remer shines some light on Slough Farm in this recent story.
