Barge runs

Next Trash barge run Friday 13 June. 2014

Hi Paula,

We are trying for Friday, as long as everything goes as planned. If not, we will be there on Monday.

You can have everything on the barge on Thursday.

Thanks

Kristen Roy

 

A second barge with the Crowley House (on the Neck) is coming over on a  barge scheduled for June 25  leaving from AGM’s supply yard at 7 Fish Island in New Bedford, and may have some room. (this is not Conrad Roy’s Barge)

 

If anyone on Cuttyhunk who would like something shipped that is too large for the ferry, I’m fairly certain we’ll have space on the inbound barge to Cuttyhunk and we’ll definitely have space on the outbound trip. I can be contacted directly via email or phone.

Sam Newbury–in commemoration

Dear Friends on Cuttyhunk,

 

My brother, Sam Newbury, died in Pittsburgh on May 22, 2014, after a long struggle with cancer.  He and his wife, Jan Myers-Newbury, and son, David Juan Newbury, had many friends on Cuttyhunk whom they cherished dearly.

 

I include the obituary, with a link below.

 

With kind regards, David Newbury

 

* * * * * *

NEWBURY, SAMUEL CHAMBERLIN (1945-2014)

Samuel Chamberlin Newbury, who was producer of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Director of Production at Family Communications, Inc. for 28 years, as well as an accomplished artist, a leader in the Pittsburgh arts community, and an elder at Sixth Presbyterian Church, died May 22, 2014, at his home in Point Breeze. He was 69, and the cause of death was cancer.

Mr. Newbury began his television career as a documentary cameraman for Jim Lehrer at KERA in Dallas, Texas, moving to Pittsburgh in 1974 as a cameraman at WQED. His work there included the production of a National Geographic special about Hong Kong with legendary filmmaker Robert Young, before beginning his close collaboration with Fred Rogers.

He was producer of MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD from 1981 until 1986 and then became Director of Production for Family Communications (now The Fred Rogers Company). In the latter role, he led the expansion of Rogers’ work and scope beyond broadcast television and into a wide arena of professional training for the benefit of children and families dealing with the emotional ramifications of illness, prejudice, anger.

A practical, disciplined, New Englander and, at the same time, an artist and a connoisseur of the arts, he was an able manager of business affairs for Fred Rogers and his company while simultaneously helping to design early, innovative uses of new technology in the burgeoning field of video training and professional development in support of young children and families.

Since college days, Sam had a lifelong commitment to social justice, inclusiveness and community building which found expression not only in his professional life but also in his personal life.

He was an active participant in the spiritual and religious life of Pittsburgh, particularly as a choir member and engaged congregant at Sixth Presbyterian Church in Squirrel Hill, and as an active participant in Interfaith Dialogue, an ongoing collaboration between Muslims, Jews and Christians in the East End of Pittsburgh.

Despite deep family ties to Boston, he was born and lived in Concord, MA until he went to college, Sam thought of Pittsburgh as his true home. He loved the intimate neighborhood near Frick Park where he lived for 34 years. He was an avid and knowledgeable gardener and birdwatcher.

Music was one of his several passions. He learned to love country western music during his years in Dallas, but early classical music trumped all else, leading to his long commitment to the Chatham Baroque Society for whom he served several years as a board member and for whom he produced and directed videotaped performances. He was awarded WQED’s VITA award in 2012 in recognition of his service to the organization.

He began his work as a ceramicist while attending Swarthmore College (a 1967 graduate) and met his wife, fabric artist Jan Myers, at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, while studying ceramics there in 1986. In retirement, he was devoted to his craft, especially to the communal activity of wood firing his pottery, and was a board member of Touchstone Center for Crafts in Farmington, PA where many such wood firings take place.

He was a committed and fiercely proud father to his son, David, and an avid soccer parent in support of David’s dedication to the sport.

During the challenging months of his final illness, Sam’s greatest pleasure was to watch soccer games on television with David and with Max, their loving mutt, close by, with the occasional glance out the back window to his beautiful garden, or out onto the street where his neighbors came and went with a nod and a wave.
Sam was a hilarious and riveting storyteller, always preferring the long version.

He was a person whose qualities seem almost antiquated in today’s world, a man of dignity and honor, of infinite patience and generosity, of restraint and reflection, of faith and endurance.
Beloved husband of Jan Myers-Newbury; devoted father of David Juan Newbury; brother of Nancy Newbury Andrésen (the late Donald), David Newbury (Catharine), William Newbury (Priscilla); David Myers (Anne), Larry Myers (Susan); cousin to Gilbert Roddy (Susan); uncle of Elizabeth, Caroline, Susanna, Sophie and Cordelia Newbury, Alyson and Amanda Myers.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life Service will be held at Sixth Presbyterian Church on Sunday, June 1, 2014, at 1:30 p.m. Please omit flowers. If desired, memorial contributions may be made to Oxfam America (designated for work in Peru) or to Sixth Presbyterian Church. Arrangements by McCABE BROS., INC.

Electric light commision

I want to help Cuttyhunk creat a sensible, stable, cost-effective renewable
power system.  Grant funds are there to do it, but there are many pitfalls
to getting this right.  I led the Naushon effort to do exactly the same
thing and would like to help Cuttyhunk with what I learned. A good renewable
design cut 2/3 of Naushon’s fuel use and will extend generator life while
cutting repair costs.  I would like to join the electric light commission to
contribute from my experience.
Thank you,
Paul Elias
