A 35-foot sailboat shipwrecked on East Beach just north of the Pesuta wreck site may have to stay there until mid-September brings higher tides. "The crew are safe and the boat is in good condition," Ms Stefanyk said. "There really is no other option but to wait for the tides to cycle back." Ms Stefanyk said the boat apparently came ashore after the tiller snapped during a storm. She said several local people have been incredibly helpful with the situation, including the Macks, Leandre Vigneault, and CRAIG BEACHY. Note by editor of this site. Craig was able to pull the sail boat off the beach at high tide in the middle of the night with his backhoe. This was accomplished with a long line through a block fasten to an anchor (deadman) buried at low tide. Click to read the article in the QCI Observer.

The health of a democratic society depends on a citizenry of informed, critically thinking adults. One aspect of critical thinking is openness to the possibility that one's view of the truth and "how things are" may be skewed, if not completely erroneous. Such a mindset leads to a culture of intellectual humility, questioning, critical evaluation of evidence and the willingness to change one's mind.

I love the Obama family's White House garden. It's a great way to promote the value of fresh, homegrown food, and I hope many will follow the example that the president and first lady have set. But today I am urging President Obama to pick up a pen instead of a garden hoe, because hidden in the garden's onions and tomatoes is a connection to international humanitarian law that deserves his immediate attention. Many countries have banned cluster bombs. Unfortunately, the U.S. isn't one of them.
