My video of scenes and interviews due at 8PM tonight.


Rudy left last night to go to Alaska for the salmon season.   He is from Honduras and been fishing out of Gloucester for over ten years.  For as long as he has been in the US he still hasn’t learned much English but is still one of the funniest guys you’d ever meet.  Video with Rudy tomorrow.

Adam Sandler Movie Neighborhood Communication

Here is a communication from Lakefront Productions, the company which  is working with “Happy Madison”  Adam Sandlers’ production company on the movie “Grown Ups”.  This went out to all the neighbors around  the lake.  You can click it and select “all sizes”  for the full size version to read how they will be handling boat traffic and the use of fireworks at different times during the summer.

Ron Gilson-The Future of Gloucester’s Fishing Industry – Part II — CHANGE

The Future of Gloucester’s Fishing Industry – Part II — CHANGE

Ron Gilson-

While many activists base their efforts on a fishing industry “comeback”, the reality is it isn’t going to happen. “Comeback”, meaning hundreds of meaningful shore side processing jobs, hundreds of new career fisherman on hopefully hundreds of boats….anything resembling the 1940s and ‘50s, is simply out of the question. Still there are those holding out hope for a return to the deluge volume of the early ‘50s! Dr. Carmine Gorga has publicly stated his only hope is “will we be ready….”

Since 1950, our once anchor industry has been on a downward spiral. There are many citizens of Gloucester who point to declining fish landings, being the result of governmental regulations, and a lack of resource compared to the industry heydays of the ‘40s and ‘50s. That is all true; however, there are even deeper reasons for Gloucester’s industry demise. I realize that over fishing and over regulation are often thought of as the main cause of our industry failing, however, I believe “change” in our society is the principle culprit.
