We continue a WCAI tradition.  Third grade students at the Tisbury School in Vineyard Haven read their Valentine's Day greetings.

The first Cape Cod Family & Youth Film Festival is coming! Designed to foster an appreciation of film as an art form and cinema as a social event, in an age where many families turn to television, streaming platforms, and various devices for their entertainment. This festival recognizes the importance of the unique experience of going to the movies, and of sharing that marvelous activity with the next generation.

It’s seed ordering time again. While the cold blows in under the doors and through cracks in the windows, the catalogs pour in through the mail. And it’s time to start thinking about this year’s gardens. What are we going to plant? Well, together with his wife, Peter Staaterman runs Longnook Meadows Farm in Truro, and he has an idea.

When the howling winter wind is piling snow drifts across your driveway, you might find it therapeutic to think about that iconic sign of the eventual change of seasons, the first robin of spring. In that case, I have some good news for you - the robins are already here!
