If they said what they really felt when they showed up late, what do you think they would say?
I’ll start.
“I had plenty of time to get here on time but I wanted to make sure everyone was here before me so I wouldn’t have to wait for anyone else”
Add what you think goes through the perpetually late person’s mind when they show up late with a Starbucks Coffee in their hand.

UUSR Martin Luther King Jr. weekend events 2016

All are welcome this weekend at the Unitarian-Universalist Society of Rockport! We will commemorate and affirm the work and life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, beginning with this Sunday’s 10:30 a.m. worship service devoted to the theme of Racial Justice. The next day,  Monday 18 January, will be the 28th  annual MLK Day march and service.

The march will begin at 10 a.m., at the U.U. Society of Rockport, 4 Cleaves Street and follow a route through downtown of about 1 mile.  You are cordially invited to come at 9:30 to make signs (a favorite activity for the children.)  After the march there will be the chance to warm up with hot cider before joining Rev. Susan Moran in a short service of readings and music honoring Dr. King. Guest speaker,  Alexis A. Toliver,   the co-lead organizer for Black Lives Matter in Cambridge and a Research Assistant in the Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, will speak about the meaning and goals of the Black Lives Matter movement.


This march began 28 years ago when 8 year old Lily Ruchman, having learned a bit about Dr. King, asked her mother if there could be a march.  Her mother Anita, and her church community said Yes.  We and many others from the North Shore have marched each year since then for the ideals Dr. King lived and died for: economic and racial equality, peaceful means to peaceful ends, dignity and freedom for all people.

City Councilor Steven LeBlanc

On Monday night at City Hall a packed audience attended the “Living with Wildlife” coyote meeting. Recognizing the exploding population of coyotes on Cape Ann, City Councilor Steven LeBlanc had requested the forum. Approximately 250 people were in attendance, which is an unusually large number for a meeting of this nature and speaks to the general concern by Cape Ann residents to the growing number of coyotes now living amongst us.

The informational meeting was conducted by Pat Huckery, the northeast district manager for the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife and she is herself a wildlife biologist. Pat presented the life history of the coyote as well as a number of methods for lessening human encounters with coyotes, most notably to cut off their food supply. Humans providing food to the coyotes directly and indirectly is the number one culprit and at the top of the list states Pat is bird feeders. She recommends that if you do have a bird feeder, at the very least, clean up the daily mess underneath the feeders. Spilled bird food attracts rodents and small mammals, which in turn attracts coyotes. Unsecured garbage as well as pet food left outdoors are also strong coyote attractants.

The very specific and unique ecology of Cape Ann, in relation to the coyote, was not discussed. Cape Ann’s coyote population has mushroomed in part due to the wealth of food that can be scavenged along our shoreline, marshes, and wooded habitats. One East Gloucester resident attending the meeting reported that she lives with a pack of twenty in her backyard. Hunting as an approved option for reducing the coyote population was discussed and is also believed to help create a healthy fear of humans on the part of the coyote. Local licensed hunter Sam Holmes was in attendance and he can be reached at 978-491-8746. Communities such as Middleton, Rhode Island, have an expanded hunting season to manage the population of specifically coyotes that have lost their fear of humans. Pat also debunked the highly romanticized term coywolf, and disputes the concept that by hunting coyotes, the reverse occurs and the overall population increases.
