Chickity Check It! “As I was Saying by Sheree DeLorenzo”

My buddy Sheree has her own blog-

As I was Saying by Sheree DeLorenzo

"The title of this blog comes from my mother. She always used to say, “Sheree is such a good conversationalist.” This was her kind and gentle way of saying, “Sheree talks nonstop.” She would also say, “When Sheree dies and goes to Heaven, she won’t miss a beat. She’ll just look straight at God and say, ‘As I was saying….’ and continue on with her chatter.” So the title is a nod to my mother and her wit.

Video: Gloucester’s First Wind Turbine Transported Through the Inner Harbor

Filmed on October 15th, 2012. I began filming the barge carrying Gloucester’s first wind turbine at daybreak, from Niles Beach, as it was being prepared for transport through the inner harbor. Leaving Niles, I jumped in my car and raced over to Rocky Neck to catch the barge as it was rounding the Paint Factory jetty. The barge moved slowly and majestically through the harbor, dwarfing the wooden clapboard homes and working waterfront buildings. The sky was mostly overcast, and when the sun shone briefly, the metal siding of the tugboat Orion and the steely gray cylinders shimmered in the early morning light.

I then zoomed back to my car and drove to the Jodrey Fish Pier, which was a great vantage point to film as the barge was approaching its destination, the Cruiseport launching site.

At the State Pier, many people were photographing and marveling at the enormity of the wind turbine. The largest turbine section purportedly weighs over a million pounds. Shree Delorenzo, co-owner of Cruiseport, reports that she had to engage a structural engineer to ensure that her dock could withstand the weight of the turbine, along with the two cranes, and the counter weights.

Breaking News!!! Here’s the Official Scoop On The Birdseye Property From Sheree DeLorenzo

Where do you hear it first?  GMG, Natch!

Beach Front Gloucester Commercial LLC, a limited liability corporation formed for the purpose of acquiring the Bird’s Eye property located at 47-61 Commercial Street along with 10 Beach Court in Gloucester, Massachusetts, has entered into a Purchase and Sales agreement to acquire these properties. Sheree DeLorenzo, owner-operator of Cruiseport Gloucester LLC is the lead project manager for the Bird’s Eye project.

“Our intentions for the property are in keeping with mixed use along Gloucester’s working waterfront. We have no intentions of condos at this site. However, this location is ideal for a hotel, restaurant and conference / function facility,” said DeLorenzo.

“We have shown with Cruiseport that it is possible to have successful mixed use projects that contribute jobs and revenue to the city,” continued DeLorenzo.

Cruiseport Gloucester LLC currently consists of a function hall, restaurant, commercial marina, and is homeport to national and international cruise ships. Cruiseport currently employs approximately 150 people. Nine commercial fishing vessels regularly utilize the Cruiseport commercial docks along with the LNG service tugboat.

“We want to work with the neighborhood and the city of Gloucester to bring about the positive change that we know is possible for the beautiful city of Gloucester,” said DeLorenzo.

Mayor Carolyn Kirk has been briefed by DeLorenzo and expressed optimism about this latest news regarding Bird’s Eye. Said Kirk, “these plans are in keeping with the long-standing goal of the city to attract a downtown hotel, expand the tax base, generate revenue, and bring about additional vitality to Gloucester.”

Additional comment will be forthcoming after the closing date which is approximately 30 days from now.
