Got a minute?
Here’s what’s happening on Martha’s Vineyard today.
Today is National Paper Airplane Day. Seems like a good way to spend the afternoon. Speaking of paper, our print newspapers were delayed today because of a mix-up with the trucking company that delivers them. We apologize for the delay. You should expect to see the print edition in your mailbox by Friday. Thank you for your patience and understanding. If your friend sent you this, sign up for yourself here.

Today's Minute is sponsored by: North Water Gallery

New Art arriving daily. Open 7 days a week. A warm welcome awaits you.
Bottled up tensions
The Vineyard Montessori School continues to serve bottled water while they try to find out the source of lead found in water samples at the school. During a water commission meeting on Wednesday, Debbie Jernigan, head of school, urged action by the town to expedite the issue. At times, water superintendent Chris Cassidy spoke over her. Reporter Rich Saltzberg has this story.
Super idea?
The All-Island School Committee gathered again on Wednesday to talk about life without Matt D’Andrea. This time the committee had some input from a member of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees on hand for some guidance. The discussion centered around whether the committee could appoint Richie Smith as superintendent for the remaining two years of D’Andrea’s contract. Reporter Lucas Thors has this story.

‘Enough is enough’
That was the overwhelming response during a walkout on Thursday at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. Students at the school took to the side of Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road carrying signs and a message — more needs to be done to protect students while they’re at school. The MVRHS students joined students across the country in walking out to honor the lives lost on Tuesday in Uvalde, Texas. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo has this story.
There are no meetings scheduled for Friday, but there is a climate change summit for the Island’s youth at Felix Neck. Check it out.

Quote of the Day
"To see the voters of all six towns come together to pass this with such large margins truly speaks volumes, both to the immense need and to the desire to tackle this crisis as a community. We hope the Island community will continue to stay engaged with the same level of support as the Housing Bank moves through the next steps and on to the state legislature."–Julie Fay and Arielle Faria, co-chairs of the Coalition to Create the Martha’s Vineyard Housing Bank, on the vote in Tisbury that gave the initiative a clean sweep of Island town meetings and elections

Our house is your house
The Red House Peer Recovery Support Center is a place where anyone who is on the road to recovery can stop by for a nice meal with friends, yoga, music, arts and crafts, movie nights, and various recovery support programs. The Red House prides itself on inclusivity, and goes far beyond the conventional 12-step process to create a community around recovery that transcends far beyond the walls of the center. Director of publications Connie Berry met with some folks at the Red House and heard their story. Read the touching and informative piece here.
