Lisa Smith writes, “It is hiking weather and how would you like to visit Ravenswood Park? Welcome to Ravenswood Park is a video that Zack Even, our talented summer intern made. It’s beautifully shot and edited. Zack is now finishing his senior year at  Manchester-Essex Regional High School. He was a pleasure to work with and totally amazed the staff at Cape Ann TV with his video skills! Henry Cooper was the CATV staff person who helped Zack with the filming- the editing was all Zack.”

The body of a woman who fell off a cruise ship off Cape Ann Friday night has been recovered, according to the United States Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard said it received word of a woman falling overboard from the cruise ship Seabourn Quest about 10 miles off the coast around 7 p.m.
