She and I served on the Maritime Museum board at the same time. I know that she doesn’t j...

Bell’s Flats celebrates playground
Womens Bay residents spread wood chips beneath park equipment at Panamaroff Creek Park on Saturday, one of the final steps in a multiyear project to fix up the park with new playground equipment. Cathy Wilson, a 35-year resident, said the project began when another neighbor became interested in fixing up the park. “It’s been a fun process just getting the kids back over here,” Wilson said. “We used to call this pa...
