Jayhawk training flightBOSTON – Search and rescue crews from Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, Massachusetts, medically evacuated a man from a fishing boat 110 miles east of Cape Cod, Friday.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Boston Command Center received an urgent call from the fishing vessel Capt Joe stating that a 62-year-old crewman aboard was suffering from severe abdominal pain.

Considering the potential severity of the man’s condition and the distance from land, Sector Boston conferred with the 1st District Command Center who initiated the medevac.

Air Station Cape Cod was directed to launch two air crews, one aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to conduct the hoist, another aboard an HC-144A Ocean Sentry aircraft to provide communication and support coverage.

Despite winds gusting to 40-knots and seas reaching 10-15 feet, the Jayhawk crew safely hoisted the man aboard and transferred him to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

“The on-scene conditions were challenging,” said Lt. Preston Hieb, the command duty officer at the Sector Boston Command Center. “Our crews train in all weather, and we’re always to respond,” he said.

Sista Felicia’s Signature Homemade St. Joseph Zeppole



This morning while whipping up a few batches of my famous St. Joseph Zeppole for tonight’s Novena Coffee, I decide to fix a special tray for my Comere Bridget Mathews, to serve at their families St. Joseph Feast at the Mathews family home this afternoon! After all a St. Joseph Feast is not complete without St. Joseph Zeppole Pastry. A Traditional St. Joseph Zeppole is filled with a pastry custard and or sweetened ricotta cream filling toped with either cherries, candied fruits and or small chocolate pieces, finished with a light dusting of Confectioners sugar. Today I prepared my signature St. Joseph Zeppole Pastry, in an equal assortment of  pastry custard, and sweetened ricotta cream filling, accompanied with sweetened cherries!


Bridget Mathews Writes~ Melodey might have to have dessert before lunch! Thank you Felicia for the zeppole delivery!! They look delish!!!

Each year I prepared 168 St. Joseph Zeppole for our families Feast, and all 168 Zeppole were enjoyed as fast as the freshly baked pastry shells were filled. This year I’m definitely planning to make a few dozen more!
