Drowning in Gloucester – News Coverage

All the News Stations came to Gloucester to report on the drowning at Braces Cove. 

This is about the coverage.  Channel 4, 5 and 7 were all at Good Harbor Beach reporting. 

I captured WBZ reporting on video. 

 My heart goes out to the family who lost a loved one today. 


Harvey Gamage–High and Dry

The 131 foot, 95 ton schooner Harvey Gamage is in town for this weekend’s Schooner Festival. On Tuesday afternoon it was moved from its berth at the State Fish Pier to Rose’s Marine where it was positioned, secured and lifted on the yard’s drydock for bottom cleaning and maintenance. The operation took more than an hour and involved both mechanical and hydraulic devices as well as a good deal of plain old muscle power.

It must be centered over the submerged cradle.

Fine tuning the schooner's position requires both muscle and finesse.

The main halyard is made fast to a cleat on the dock and used to straighten the ship.

Once the boat is in position, the dock is slowly raised.

Driving wedges to properly brace the schooner.

High and dry.

Betty- GMG Adopt A Pet of The Week



Betty – Pet of the Week
Good Morning Gloucester!   My name is Betty and I am a sweet and curious lady
who is 3-1/2 years old.  I am staying at the Cape Ann Animal Aid in Gloucester
until I am adopted. I am a rescue from Puerto Rico.  I can be bashful, but
once I get to know you – I am a real snuggle bunny.  I am learning about
leash walking and can’t wait to be adopted so I can walk
around Gloucester and show off my new family.  If you would like to visit me,
please stop by the shelter located at the Cape Ann Animal Aid in Gloucester,
located at 260 Main Street.  We are closed on Monday and Tuesdays, but
open the other days.    I think I am a Jack Russell Terrier with a sprinkle of
this and that in my family tree.  Because of my timid nature, I would love a
family with children ten years or older.  Please…please….please consider
adopting.  My life has not been that easy and
being adopted would make my life perfect.  Just thinking about being adopted
just makes me so happy I could cry!

Thanks to Tina Ketchopolos for sending in the Pet of The Week
