A Cape Cod Tale

first_imgHow welcome: a beach read that centers on a beach, not to mention an engaging novel that manages to be romantic and real without needing recourse to the “F” word. Jamie Brenner, whose last summer romp, “Drawing Home,” took place in Sag Harbor, still graces our East End, though her latest novel, “Summer Longing,” revisits Provincetown, or P’Town, as insiders would say. The site of an earlier novel, “The Forever Summer” (2017), the Cape Cod vacation spot figures in “Summer Longing,” not just as setting but inspiration: the idea that a place can reconstitute character, not only for visitors but for a tightly-knit all-year-round community.Though the cast of characters can at times get confusing as to who is related to whom, Brenner crafts a complicated heartwarming melodrama that embraces a number of contemporary issues. It has some unusual protagonists, a 58-eight-year old divorcee from Philadelphia, Ruth Cooperman, and a young biracial lesbian couple, “Fern and Elise, “washashores” who have been in P’Town long enough to qualify as “townies” and who are trying to make a go at a new tea business and having a baby.A recent and wealthy retiree who gave up an international cosmetics company, Ruth decides to rent a seaside cottage in P’Town, where she met her husband 40 years earlier, and get some quiet, reflective time. Though at the Cape only that one time, decades ago, she has “indelible” memories of what she was like at that critical juncture between youth and adulthood, before she got married and founded her business. Her relationship with her resentful daughter Olivia, a social media publicist in midtown, never good, has deteriorated even more, and though she and her ex, Ben, a recently retired anesthesiologist, are friendly, they rarely talk, much less meet. Olivia is her father’s child, determinedly not her mother’s.Ruth seems at first a little imperious in her determination to get away from it all. Fat chance! Shortly after she gets to her rental, she discovers a baby on her doorstep! No ID, but left with milk and a bottle. Whose could it be? “No one in town had had a baby. It had to be a summer person’s,” the townies say. And so the narrative moves with the reluctant but inevitable involvement of Ruth. As the occasional italicized passage (interior monologue) puts it, “You can leave your marriage. You can leave your company. But motherhood must be reckoned with.” Elise, however, is thrilled to take on the abandoned baby, and some of the townsfolk’s women are eager to help. Indeed, a major theme of “Summer Longing” is that P’Town can be transformative, mainly because it is so accepting.In an acknowledgments section, Brenner, who first visited Provincetown in 2015, thanks those who befriended her and introduced her to P’Town lore: fishing, arts and crafts, holiday festivals, shops, restaurants, oyster farming. She doesn’t just create a charming postcard, however. She shows the town as it is in summer off Commercial Street — noisy, crowded, and, in spots, expensive. And there’s even a bad-mouth in the townie bunch, out to sow discord. Yes, “Summer Longing” is a woman’s book: sentimental, simply written, paced to show the evolution of friendship and love. But though 20- and 30-somethings do claim attention, it is Brenner’s sympathetic and savvy understanding of older women, particularly those with family who were and still are fired to exercise creativity in the wider world — and of the conflicts these twin desires engender — that makes this summer read timely and significant: a sense of the hard, small stones, sometimes difficult to navigate, that lie underneath the smooth sands of a beach. Happy Mother’s Day. Sharelast_img read more

One Year Later, Mother Who Allegedly Killed Twin Toddlers Remains in Jail

first_imgJune 27 marks the first anniversary of the arrest of Tenia Campbell, the Medford women who allegedly admitted to police, as well as to her mother in a phone conversation at the time, that she murdered her twin two-year-old daughters, before she was found in Montauk.Campbell, a 25-year-old whose family said she struggles with mental health issues, remains in the county jail in Riverside, where she was remanded without the possibility of bail due to the seriousness of the charges. Her next scheduled court date is Thursday, June 25, two days before the anniversary. Due to COVID-19, her court conference will likely be conducted via teleconference.The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office said Campbell suffocated her daughters, Jaida and Jasmine Campbell, though they never publicly revealed how or exactly where the murders took place.A grand jury indicted her on two counts of murder in the first degree for allegedly killing multiple victims, and two counts of murder in the second degree, for allegedly intentionally killing her twin daughters.Campbell faces life without parole if found guilty on the first-degree murder charges, or 25 years to life on the second-degree murder charges.On June 27, a Thursday, around 2 p.m., Campbell’s mother, Vanessa McQueen, dialed 911 from her Mastic Beach home. She had received a hysterical call from her then 24-year-old daughter, who reportedly told her, “I am going to kill myself and my babies.”McQueen called police from her house phone, keeping her daughter on the line on her cellphone. When the mother asked Campbell about the toddlers, she was reportedly told, “They are already dead, I killed them with my bare hands.”A massive search ensued. Police departments across Suffolk County searched for the 2001 green Chrysler Town and Country minivan Campbell was driving. Campbell repeatedly told her mother that she was driving to the beach and was going drown herself, according to McQueen’s statement to the police. Police also searched for Campbell’s 4-year-old son. He was found safe with his father, who is not the father of twins.About two hours later, an East Hampton Town police officer spotted Campbell’s minivan at the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt County Park in Montauk, which is roughly halfway between downtown Montauk and the Montauk Lighthouse. Campbell was walking towards Montauk Highway when a squad car pulled up.Campbell allegedly begged the responding officers to shoot her.After taking her into custody, officers then made the gruesome discovery: The 2-year-old toddlers, strapped into their car seats in the minivan’s back seat — lifeless.Emergency personnel tried to resuscitate the girls and rushed them to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, where they were pronounced dead. They had likely been dead before their mother arrived in Montauk.Jaida and Jasmine had turned two in April of 2019. Pictures of them dressed in matching purple, pink, and blue tutus, wearing lavender headbands with floral appliques and holding lollipops showed how their mother marked the milestone.But the picture her mother painted for police of their final days was quite different. Campbell, diagnosed with bi-polar disorder as a teenager, grappled with depression and anxiety, and had been “very irrational and extremely upset” in the 10 days leading up to her granddaughters’ deaths.Her attorney, John Halverson, has indicated previously that her mental health would be a major part of his defense for his client, for whom he entered a plea of not guilty during her arraignment in the State Courthouse in Riverside. Halverson, a private attorney, was appointed by the county to represent Campbell because she is indigent. Halverson is on a select list of attorneys who the county deems qualified to represent a client facing such serious charges.Mental health doctors have examined Campbell during her time in jail. As with almost all cases in courthouses across the state, the process has been frozen for the past couple of months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The story of filicide, of twins no less, touched people around the county.East Hampton Town Police Chief Michael Sarlo at the time said that he was proud of how his officers handled a tragic situation, relying on training, including defensive tactics and de-escalation. Unfortunately, it was too late for the girls.It had already been a difficult month for the department, starting with the murder of Robert Casado in Kirk Park on June 6, 2019 — the first in East Hampton Town in a decade and the first in Montauk in 22 years. Just one week earlier, Joseph A. Grippo was charged with Casado’s murder. His case also remains pending.t.e@indyeastend.comtaylor@indyeastend.com Sharelast_img read more

Family lawyers hail new code

first_imgFamily lawyers have welcomed last week’s publication of the long-awaited Family Procedure Rules 2010, which will come into force on 6 April. The new code, published by the Ministry of Justice, provides a single set of rules for proceedings in the magistrates’ court, county court and High Court, along the model of the Civil Procedure Rules. It comprises nearly 300 pages of statutory instrument, intended to provide one set of simple and simply expressed rules of court for family proceedings, to replace the disparate body of unconsolidated rules and guidance that has been used in different types of proceedings. The rules will be supplemented by practice directions that have yet to be published. Christina Blacklaws, Law Society council member for child care, called the publication of the code a ‘hugely significant development’. However, she noted that the rules introduce an ‘overriding objective’ for the courts to deal justly with cases. Since the introduction of the Children Act 1989, the welfare of the child has been the paramount consideration of the court, but Blacklaws cautioned that the considerations in the overriding objective, which include saving expense, could lead to a different approach. She also questioned whether the rules, which oblige the court to consider the use of alternative dispute resolution at every stage, would change the judicial approach to ADR, especially mediation. David Woodward, partner and head of the family team at TLT in Bristol, also welcomed the rules, which he predicted could pave the way for a unified family court. He said: ‘This would remove the current layers of courts and benefit clients, who are not interested in historic divisions between the judiciary.’ Part of the new overriding objective of the rules is to ensure that parties are on an equal footing. But with the demise of legal aid, Woodward questioned how this would be achieved, particularly as the rules make no provision for an interim lump sum to fund legal fees. ‘Without funds, many clients will be unable to get advice and representation, which will increase the number of litigants in person who are already causing log jams in the courts,’ he said.last_img read more

North-West Transport Hub opens

first_img Next Previous 1/4 show caption UK: The rail facilities at the North-West Transport Hub in Northern Ireland’s second city were opened by transport agency Translink on October 21.The new Derry~Londonderry station returns to railway use the city’s former Waterside station, a Grade B-listed nineteenth century structure which closed in 1980 when train services were diverted to terminate nearby. The historic building has now been restored as a transport hub for the cross-border North-West region, which will offer improved co-ordination between trains, local and cross-border buses and ‘active travel’ walking and cycling routes.There is space for use by community organisations, and Translink hopes the building will become ‘one of the city’s best-known venues’.A park-and-ride site, enhanced public realm and bus turning circle are scheduled to be completed in mid-2020.‘This important project has taken a key piece of the North-West’s architectural heritage and restored it to a modern transport facility, an appropriate gateway to the vibrant city of Derry~Londonderry and the wider North-West region’, said Translink CEO Chris Conway.The contractors were Babcock and a joint venture of Farrans and Rhomberg Sersa, supported by companies including heritage survey consultants FarrimondMacManus and architects Paul Hogarth Co.The £27m project was funded by the EU’s INTERREG VA Programme (€23·5m), Northern Ireland’s Department for Infrastructure (£7·4m), Derry City & Strabane District Council and – reflecting the Hub’s cross-border and regional role – the Republic of Ireland’s Department for Transport, Tourism & Sport.

Dominican fishermen to receive more FADs

first_img Sharing is caring! Share LocalNews Dominican fishermen to receive more FADs by: Dominica Vibes News – January 6, 2015 Tweet 214 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Share Mitsuhiro Ishida; Marine BiologistA project initiated by the Fisheries Division to provide fish aggregating device (FADs) to fisherman is expected to continue in 2015.The Caribbean Fisheries Co-management Project (CARIFICO) which commenced in May 2013 will continue to provide fishing support especially in the area of FAD’s.Mitsuhiro Ishida, a Japanese marine biologist, who is part of the project, said while there is equipment available to deplore the FAD’s they would like to see that the FAD’s are properly managed.“We want the sustainability of the utilization of the FAD therefore the fishers should gather and discuss in greater detail the management of the FAD,” Ishida told Dominica Vibes.Mr Ishida stated that although there are already management plans in place, he would like the cooperative to calculate how much is spent on the FADS and how much would have to be contributed by the fishermen for the proper management of it.He also stated that during the five year run of the project, the Japanese government can supply the materials for the FADs but would like to see the user fees being paid to assist with the sustainability of the project.Mr Ishida also informed that there is enough material at hand now to deploy 5-8 short FAD batches which has a financial value of about ten thousand US dollars (US $10,000).“Depending on the progress made 30,000 U.S dollars more will be given in support. If you don’t show any progress we cannot convince the Japanese government to give that support,” Mr Ishida further informed.He stated that the target at the end of the program is to have 30-40 FADs, around the island, being continually maintained and managed.Fisheries officer Norman Norris earlier stated that FAD fishing will allow reef fishes and other fishes caught in nets time to replenish since more fishermen will be heading further out to sea.last_img read more

Soldotna Decides How To Spend Millions In CARES Act Money

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The City of Soldotna adopted a plan to spend over $7.3 million in Federal CARES Act funding during their City Council meeting on Wednesday. The vote was unanimous by a 5 – 0 vote. On May 27, Soldotna City Council adopted Resolution 2020-026, authorizing the City Manager to accept $7,376,315.80 in grant funds from the State of Alaska, Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development for necessary expenditures due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Queen said that there are some areas where the spending could have aimed low: “I will tell you that one of the categories we had earmarked for direct support to residents – originally we put in $275,000 for that. Based on the level of need from Soldotna residents that participated in AHFC’s mortgage relief program, that’s probably an area where we shot too low. If we, the city, want to replicate a program like that moving forward, it may be that it’s a category that needs to get bigger, in terms of direct need.” City Manager Stephanie Queen is proud of the CARES Act spending: “I am happy with the approach we’ve presented. It puts roughly two-thirds of our funding back directly into the community rather than into projects that the city would undertake for our own expenses. I think that’s a really good approach for the City of Soldotna, our business owners, and residents.” Mayor Pete Sprague questioned the City Manager about whether more money could go towards Soldotna’s residents: “Have there been discussions at the administrative level of other programs that are available, or might be available to help our residents? Outside of the business and non-profits? Such as housing relief?”center_img She presented the City Council with a spending plan, which designates CARES Act funds into several different expense categories, including funds to be offered as grants to Soldotna businesses and area non-profits that have suffered financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Council member Jordan Chilsom proposed a working group be established to look at how to fund individuals in Soldotna: “I do think that we have some responsibility to disperse some of this ourselves directly. I think there’s some opportunity there and I’d like to have some ideas come forward from a work group.” Soldotna Cares grant awards will be from the COVID-19 CARES Act Relief Special Revenue Fund. Up to $750,000 may be awarded to eligible non-profit organizations. Up to $2,000,000 may be awarded to eligible local businesses. The city plans to open up applications on July 17 for a two-week application window.last_img read more
