Vernon’s Pit, Lanesville- Summer of 1972 Mystery

Dee Noble asks-

Through a series of very odd coincidences, Steve and I met Jim and Kathy from Roanake, VA today. They are here as a result of a near-death experience Jim had at Vernon’s Pit in Lanesville in either July or August of 1972. Jim was living temporarily on Day Ave in Lanesville that summer.

Jim and his friend were sitting on the rocks when he realized that a younger kid (high school age) was in trouble in the water. He jumped in and was able to rescue this kid and gave him mouth-to-mouth until the ambulance arrived.

He heard later from a neighbor who knew a nurse at AGH that the kid survived. Jim is determined to find out who this man is.

He is pretty sure the kids name was also Jim, had dark hair, and was with (3) other boys and (1) girl at the time. The man would be somewhere around his 60’s now. Any and all information greatly appreciated. This incident changed the course of Jim’s life and I would love to see him solve the mystery!

CRAZY ABOUT CATERPILLARS!

Emma, Pilar, Atticus, and Meadow were fantastic with the caterpillars and a huge help with the project. We are so blessed to know these bright and curious kids, and their incredible parents!Pilar Atticus Meadow Emma monarch caterpillar ©Kim Smith 2015

What? You’ve never been aboard the Beauport Princess Cruise Ship? Rectify that on Schooner Festival Sunday!

This is NOT a small whale-watch or fishing boat.  It’s a fully-loaded CRUISE SHIP featuring 2 enclosed decks with dance floors, 3 full-service bars (wine, beer & top-shelf liquor) and an open-air top deck — theatre seating on the first deck, tables on the second deck and couches on the top deck.

The weather will probably be great, but even if it’s not, you can party in luxury and comfort on both of the air-conditioned (or heated if need be) indoor decks with bars and dance floors.

Plus you’ll be partying with 5-time Grammy Nominees Roomful of Blues and cruising historic Gloucester Harbor full of tall ships on Schooner Festival Sunday!  Our last three concert cruises sold out, so please don’t be one of those people who calls us begging for a spot we can’t give you.  Get your tickets RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW. Then you can relax and enjoy Schooner Festival weekend!

VIDEO: Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar 2015

Lisa Smith from Cape Ann TV writes, “Zack is blowing us away over here. If you get a chance, please watch it (it’s only 4 minutes). This is only Zack’s 3rd editing assignment on a short video. It is his first time going out and shooting an event, I helped him with the interviews and he shot all the b-roll himself! He did all the editing. Zack is going into his senior year at MERHS and I think he is destined for big things. We have had some very talented interns in here, but I have never seen anyone like him. Oh yeah, he is a really nice young man too.”
