If there was ever such a thing as a bad day on the boat, it happened to the poor souls who had just purchased this Regal the day before this picture was taken. It washed ashore after stalling, but luckily no one was injured. This picture was taken the morning of Thursday, Oct. 4 at the south end of the island.

BY MARCY SHORTUSE - When Judy Still was looking through the classifieds in a local newspaper, she found a very interesting job prospect. It was the description, though, that didn’t make much sense to her.
It said, “TIS Rosa,” leading her to wonder just what a “‘tis Rosa” was.
As it turned out, it meant that The Island School was looking for a reading specialist, and the contact person was then-principal Rosa Ramos.
STAFF REPORT - Because of a scheduling conflict, Literature Forum has changed the date of the presentation of the book “The Things They Carried” to Tuesday, Nov. 20.
This memoir-novel of the experiences of author Tim O’Brien during and after his service in the Vietnam War is certain to provoke a lively discussion fraught with emotional, intellectual, and personal, moral values.
