Snow This Morning, Monomoy School District, Liz Taylor Dies

Snow Mas!

A late-season snow storm started at 5 last night in Buzzards Bay, and is still working her way off the coast 14 hours later. We picked up a half inch or so, and might get another inch before it's all said and done.

We'll see a bit more snow in the next week, but this looks like the last accumulation. I'm not sure how your roads are, but hopefully they still have plows and sand.

Monomoy Regional School District

We reported earlier this week that the students of the new Chatham-Harwich school district were allowed the opportunity to vote some school names off the island. They were given a list of 50 names, which they culled down to 5... Monomoyick, Atlantic Coast, Nantucket Sound, Pleasant Bay, and Monomoy.

The interim school committee met last night and voted on what the final  name should be. Showing solidarity with their schoolchildren, they selected "Monomoy."

So, there we have it... the Monomoy Regional School District.

The students will soon be given a list of mascot names, and will select a winner from it. We'll keep you informed.

Altough the Sports Desk is scattered from New Hampshire to Cape Cod, we'd like a say. We think the name should be:


Great Whites












Nor'easters (I don't think that any school anywhere bears the name of what is the principal weather system New England is known for, and Monomoy can redress this situation)





Summer People





Clam Shacks


Lobster Rolls

Whatever form of wooden sailing ship no other local school uses, ie "Schooners," etc...

Actress Passes On

We are sad to report the death of Elizabeth Taylor, who joined Heaven''s cast yesterday.

Miss Taylor, known for her beauy, acting skills, and willingness to marry, was 79 or so. She had been having difficulties with congestive heart failure, which is a pretty bad problem to have.

She did a pile of films, including National Velvet and Father Of The Bride (not the Steve Martin one). She also was married 8 times, to 7 different men.

Older folks I know tell me that she was one one of the hottest girls on Earth from 1950 til about 1970 or so. She was what a guy scrapped to before they invented Internet Porn.

There are rumors drifting down that Elizabeth Taylor is already engaged to Saint Peter, but we'll have our sources in heaven confirm this for us.

Here she is in her best known role, portraying what is a very pale version of Cleopatra. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
