My husband’s grandmother kept a big garden for years—roughly 15 by 30 feet, and always filled with beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and peas. She passed away a few years ago and the land is still in the family, but over the past few seasons it’s been neglected, and now it’s overgrown.

In the wake of the Cape’s first shark fatality, there have been increasing concerns about the seal population and its impact on tourism and the economy of fisheries, which leaves many people wondering: does Cape Cod have a seal problem?

Tragedy struck on Saturday September 15th when 26-year old Arthur Medici from Revere was fatally bitten by a white shark off Newcomb Hollow beach in Wellfleet. Medici was the first shark-bite fatality in Massachusetts since 1936 but the second person this summer to be bitten. On Aug. 15 William Lytton from New York was bitten while swimming at Long Nook Beach in Truro. Today on The Point we look at the safety, economic and natural resource management repercussions from the shark bite fatality.

I was walking out in Madaket, the westernmost end of Nantucket, a few nights ago, when I noticed everything was golden. The sky, of course, with the sun’s last lingering rays. But the beach grass, too, is going to seed. I’m sure it was just yesterday that the grass was a bright, spring green. Now each strand is streaked with golden highlights. 


We’ve often heard that Facebook and Twitter are making it too easy to encase ourselves in bubbles of like-mindedness. We’ve been told that these echo chambers are fueling political polarization and that we should be exposed to differing opinions.

New research shows that idea might be wrong.
