Mariners No Match For Hard-Hitting Anglers

By: Kat Szmit

HARWICH – A home run, solid pitching, and timely hits led the Chatham Anglers to another victory against the Harwich Mariners, this time with the Anglers earning an 8-3 win at Whitehouse Field on July 14. The first inning made it seem as though the fourth match between the A's and the Mariners was destined to become a pitcher's duel as both sides were quickly retired in the opening frame. But Chatham struck qu...

The Monomoy Theatre showcases Sir Noel Coward's semi-autobiographical madcap comic play "Present Laughter," written in 1939 and placed on a shelf as World War II consumed Europe and the world. Coward himself starred in the leading role of Garry Essendine, opening to rave reviews in the fall of 1942. Clifton Webb starred four years later on Broadway. Kevin Kline drew acclaim in 2017, and so it goes, the laughter c...

Paul Schulenburg's Paintings Tell The Story

By: Pamela A. Quirinale

The art of painter Paul Schulenburg is delightful to the eyes, as well as the intellect and the soul. Eastham resident Schulenburg began his painting career after graduating from Boston University in 1979 with a BFA in art. At the time, a majority of art schools were focused on abstract painting and performance art, but Schulenburg wanted a traditional program of drawing and painting, which included anatomy an...

Our View: Making Policy Is Messy Business

By: Cape Cod Chronicle

In letters to the editor and social media recent appointments by the Chatham Board of Selectmen have been criticized as favoritism and cronyism. Singled out were the appointments of J.P. Vario to the airport commission, who replaced incumbent Tom Wilson, and David Oppenheim and Andrew Meincke to the waterways advisory committee, replacing Tim Linnell and Peter Taylor. Wilson was a critic of the airport, and, t...

Voyage Of The Colby

By: Andrew Buckley

I had slept the night before, on and off, in the quarter berth, listening to the bilge pump go on every five to six minutes. At 2 a.m., I got up, opened the hatch and emerged in the summer night air of Warwick Cove. It only took about 26 pumps of the manual bilge’s handle to empty the sailboat. But it was coming in much too fast. Twenty years earlier, I had purchased a 27-foot Catalina 27 at the Savin Hill Yac...

ORLEANS – The Lower Cape is a place where people can spend $100 on a T-shirt, $200 on a kicky pair of sandals, and $12 on a cheeseburger. It is also where the Lower Cape Outreach Council spent an additional $95,000 on client services from January to May of this year, much of it trying to keep area residents in their homes. “The biggest area of expense is mortgages and rents,” said Larry Marsland, CEO of the Lo...

ORLEANS — Has the opportunity for a Lower Cape option for treating waste from septic systems come and gone? Not according to a 3-1 vote of the board of selectmen July 11 that reaffirmed the town's commitment to include a septage component in its planned wastewater treatment plant. Selectman Mark Mathison, who voted against the measure, said haulers have changed their business model since the Tri-Town plant i...

ORLEANS — Not everyone who sets up a recreational vehicle for a multi-day stay on Nauset Beach is retired. Some have obligations downtown. “If I have an RV out there and I work at night and have to leave the beach at 4 o'clock, I'd like to go back with my wife and kids after the end of my shift,” Selectman David Currier said at the July 11 meeting of his board, gathered as park commissioners. “They're curren...

It doesn't bother Al Stewart that most people know him for his 1976 song “Year of the Cat.” “Pretty much everyone I know, people in my kind of bracket, are all known for one song,” the singer-songwriter said Monday in a telephone interview from his Los Angeles home. “I would rather be known for 'Year of the Cat' than 'Disco Duck.'” Although “Year of the Cat” and “Time Passages” were his most commercially su...

CHATHAM – “Little rocket man.” “The dotard.” Prior to the summit in Singapore last month between North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump, the pair exchanged insults. Is this good diplomacy? No, said Gov. Bill Richardson, a part-time Chatham resident, during a talk Wednesday. “I’m a traditional diplomat, I’m a dull person. I just don’t believe in insults,” Richardson said. “Diplomacy i...
