@FishermenGHS: As March comes to an end, we like to recognize our tremendous Athletic Trainer, Jason Mason, for all of his efforts throughout the year making sure our student-athletes are healthy & safe at all times.

This is not an endorsement or non-endorsement: Dan Epstein is running for the Gloucester City Council

March 27, 2023, Press Release: Dan Epstein is running for the Gloucester City Council from Ward II this fall.  Dan is a resident of Perkins Street, where he lives with his wife Jasmine, and his daughter Freya, a student at Veterans’ School.  He grew up in Massachusetts and Vermont, and after receiving his bachelor’s degree and then a PhD in Government from Harvard, he has taught political science, economics, and history at the college level for the past 15 years, and currently is back teaching at Harvard.  He also works as a bartender, and is an active member of the Temple Ahavat Achim synagogue congregation.  He has always been passionate about the common good of his community, and been involved with community activities (like park clean-ups during the pandemic) and politics.  He also worked on a presidential campaign as an organizer, and even ran for US Congress when he lived in a district in Texas where one else would challenge the incumbent.

“I love the city of Gloucester, and know I am lucky to live here.  Ward II citizens deserve a strong voice to speak up for our neighborhoods and make sure that the legislation our City Council produces will not only give good results for the whole city, but preserve and improve quality of life in our part of town.  Many issues the Council must confront are complex and require keen analysis and creative approaches.  Understanding and tackling such policy issues is a task that years of training have prepared me for.  I am ready to use that training and to draw on the opportunities and experiences I’ve had in order to serve the citizens of Gloucester in a role where I feel I can really be of use.

“In particular, I’m most concerned about housing, our local economy of small businesses, and our quality of life.  There’s a shortage of housing in Gloucester, and that has driven prices through the roof—for rentals as well as buying.  Many of the younger people I work with when bartending have little hope of being able to stay in the city where they grew up and actually have their own places someday.  This is a danger to our community’s future.  We need to be proactive about not only regulations, but local initiatives to improve the affordability of housing.  We need to ensure the quality of our housing stock is maintained at the same time, and not cannibalized by trends eating away at available housing units, and at the same time embrace smart growth policies.  We cannot just allow the vagaries of the real estate market and state-level initiatives determine the future of Gloucester’s housing: we must shape it ourselves.

“Housing is also connected to our local economy—I want to see fewer empty store-fronts on Main Street, and up at Gloucester Crossing as well.  Part of the problem is that people who might work in such businesses can barely afford to live in our town, and even the businesses that are succeeding are still challenged by finding workers.  There needs to be a voice on City Council that will call for creative ideas to attract more small businesses and help those that are already here to flourish.  The fishing industry is part of this, as fishermen are businessmen, too, and the Ward II councilor in particular has a responsibility for stewarding the docks and the harbor, and for asking hard questions about what the city government can do to ensure this important aspect of our history has a bright future, as well.  Economic trends and national and international regulations present enough challenges to the fishing industry; at the municipal level fishmen need to know there is someone in their corner. 

“The same is true for all the people of Ward II, and the quality of life in our neighborhoods.  We have some great advantages because of proximity to schools, the library and museum, the Commuter Rail, and downtown. But our location brings certain challenges that can erode our quality of life.  We need clean, well-paved streets and well-maintained parks, from Green Street playground to the park in the Fort, and particularly Burnham’s Field, in the heart of Ward II, where my daughter plays after school.  Shopping carts, nip bottles, and other unsightly items and offensive graffiti are often seen in our streets and parks.  But we deserve as beautiful neighborhoods in the center of town as anywhere else, and we need to think outside the box about ways to confront these challenges, some of which are linked to public safety issues.  In Gloucester we are lucky to depend on the most excellent police force, as well as a top quality firefighting team, and a critical (and busy) Department of Public Works.  Ensuring these are all well-resourced and well-managed is a solemn duty of the City Council, and a responsibility I am prepared to use all of my energy, passion, and training to help fulfill.

 â€śGloucester is a special, beautiful, one-of-a-kind town.  Its location is second-to-none, and its people are warm, diverse, rich in history, savvy, and tough—this is how my wife and I knew, of all the places we’ve lived and traveled, that this would be the right place to settle, to raise our family.  Ward II especially has a history of tough, savvy, and effective ward councilors over the years.  I have the passion, the energy, and the diligence to serve the people of Ward II going forward.  We need to continue that pattern of toughness through coming challenges and changes to policy, the economy, our society and even our natural environment, that will require careful consideration and effective teamwork within the city council to preserve our heritage and also guarantee our future.”

A number of Ward II residents have expressed their support for Dan.  Bernadette Merenda said “I’m supporting Dan because I know he will make well-informed choices that will benefit Ward II and the city of Gloucester.”

“To all my Ward II neighbors, as a longtime resident, I would ask that you join me in supporting Daniel Epstein for city council representing Ward II. In my opinion Dan will be great representing our needs in the neighborhood and our city.” David Leveille, Fisheries Sector Manager, Sector II, Northeast Fishery Sector, Inc.

Bob Alves, member of the Gloucester Waterways Board, lives next door to Dan and his family and gave his assessment: â€śI see in Dan an intelligent, pragmatic, engaging, community leader. Someone who views the importance of our future via the lens of a committed husband and father.  Having Dan as my neighbor, I can assure the Ward II community we will be beneficiaries of Dan’s abilities and values if we elect him as our city councilor.”

“As a Ward II resident, I really support Dan because I know he’ll do a good job listening to the needs of the diverse community we have here in Ward II and supporting the community,” said Maiuza Alves, member of the Gloucester Human Rights Commission.

Dan will be coming door-to-door in Ward II in the coming weeks to talk to residents, hear their concerns for the neighborhood, and ask them for their vote.

Project Elm

Making Cape Ann GREEN again,
one tree at a time.

Reserve Your Trees Now

We are now accepting tree requests for 2023 as we aim for 1000 Elm trees planted in 10 years—only 825 to go! So far this year our trees are free, thanks to many generous donors who are paying it forward so Cape Ann folk can plant beautiful elms!

And our dedicated volunteers will plant the tree(s) for you on the Cape Ann site you select. So what are you waiting for? Sign up for a gorgeous elm in your yard and help us by picking a site that is street facing so that we can help recreate the cathedral like “elm effect” all over Cape Ann like so many years ago and fight climate change at the same time!

Donations to help fund our efforts are deeply appreciated. Though we are not yet a 501c3 organization and therefore donations are not yet tax deductible, they will help us do what we do best—buy and plant elm trees all over Cape Ann. Thank you.

This year we, in honor of Gloucester’s 400th Anniversary, we are partnering with Biomimicy of New England to support 400 Trees Gloucester—an effort two plant that many trees in Gloucester over the next two years. All trees requested in Gloucester this year and next as a part of Cape Ann Elms will count towards this special tree initiative. Help us!

Thank you!

Saturday Complimentary Wine Tasting at Savour, 2 – 4 pm

COMPLIMENTARY

FINE WINE TASTING @ SAVOUR WITH BILL HOEY OF 21ST CENTURY WINES

21ST CENTURY WINES is a small distributor serving Massachusetts and New Hampshire. They specialize in boutique, small-production wines, favoring organic, biodynamic, sustainable wineries that produce a unique product for the discerning consumer. Bill Hoey has been in the wine business for many years and is knowledgeable and happy to share these interesting and unusual wines with us. Come down and enjoy!

 WINES

Muses Estate Crispy Assyrtiko, Viotia, Greece

Varietal: Assyrtiko Alc.13%

Northwest of Athens, in the region of Viotia, lies the Valley of the Muses, formed on the slopes of Mount Helicon by the short course of the river Permissos on its way to the sea. In ancient times, the idyllic scenery of the valley was the home of the 9 Muses, daughters of Zeus; it was also the home of Hesiod, one of the greatest poets of ancient Greece, who was born and wrote his works in ancient Askra (modern Askri), a city “rich in grapes.” This is the place where the vineyards of the Muses Estate lie. In 1946, his deep love for wine and the millennia-old winemaking tradition of his homeland led Nikolaos Zaharias to found a small winemaking facility. In 2005, Nikolaos’s grandsons– Nikos, Stelios and Panayiotis– took their place in the family business and created Muses Estate. The Crispy Assyrtiko is a fresh, vibrant wine with firm and crisp acidity seamlessly blending notes of citrus, green apple, and a hint of thyme, with a long mineral finish.

Pairs well with fish, seafood, salad. $ 19.99

Chateau de Sancerre, Sancerre, Loire, France

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc Alc.12.5%

The Château de Sancerre is one of the few French castles to bear the name of an appellation. Located on the left bank of the Loire, overlooking a unique terroir of four different soils, it has 55 hectares of vineyard, planted with vines of average age of 25 years. The rolling hills and semi-continental climate of the region produce Sauvignon Blanc with a beautiful, lively and fresh structure. The wines of Château de Sancerre are vinified and aged until bottling directly at the Château. The vineyard is located in several communes of the Appellation area: Sancerre, Bué, Crézancy, Thauvenay and Ménétreol. The three characteristic terroirs of the Sancerre appellation are therefore represented: Terres Blanches, Silex and Caillottes. The 2018 vintage is marked by a good balance and a lot of accuracy. With a combination of fruitiness (ripe gooseberries and tropical fruit) on the nose and a good balance between fruitiness and minerality on the palate, this wine has all the vibrant characteristics of a Sancerre.

Pairs well with seafood, grilled chicken, goat cheese. $ 39.99

Cherry Hill Estate Pinot Noir, Eola Hills, Oregon

Varietal: Pinot Noir Alc. 14%

The land that makes up Cherry Hill Estate has always been known as Cherry Hill in local lore. Wild cherries have always grown here, and much of Cherry Hills’ land was planted in sweet Royal Anne cherries in the 1960s.Even earlier, the hill was planted with prune trees, which produced succulent fruit. The entire Willamette Valley is known for wonderful soil and a long, moderate growing season that is just right for agriculture of all kinds. Cherry Hill Winery lies directly atop the 45th parallel, at the same Pinot-friendly latitude as Burgundy. It is a 150-acre estate, with 90 of those acres planted to Pommard and Dijon clones of Pinot Noir. This Pinot Noir has supple, vivid raspberry fruit on full display. It is juicy and bright and well balanced throughout.

Pairs well with fish, beef, wild game, pastas.$32.99

Vinicola del PrioratOnix Classic, Priorat, Spain

Varietals: 50% Carinena, 50% Garnacha Alc.14%

The region of Priorat has risen to prominence in the last 25 years, going from being relatively unknown to now producing some of the most highly valued wines in the world. There is a long history of wine production in the Priorat; Carthusian monks from Provence first planted vines in the 12th century. The region of Priorat is named after the priory they built in the hills there. A harsh, continental climate with long, hot summers and very little rain means that vines are virtually the only crops able to survive in the ruggedly mountainous Priorat. The vines are planted on steep hillsides, making mechanized farming virtually impossible – the work in the vineyards is mostly done by hand. The region is known for its unique soil, known as llicorella. Remarkably infertile, it is a dark brown mix of broken slate and quartz that sparkles in the sun. Combined, these factors lead to low yields of incredibly concentrated grapes. The head winemaker at Vinicola del Priorat, Sandra Estevez, is part of a growing movement of female winemakers in Spain. She has made a name for herself by producing elegant, carefully balanced wines that frequently garner high praise. Onix pours a dark ruby color. On the nose, it has aromas of plum with hints of earth and meat. It is soft and lush on the palate with round, firm tannins, and a good finish.

Pairs well with roasted vegetables, sausages, game. $ 24.99

Blue Rock Vineyards Baby Blue, Alexander Valley, California

Varietals:44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 9% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc Alc.14.5%

Dating back to 1880, the 100-acre Blue Rock estate tells the story of how European winemaking came to Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Italian immigrants brought with them olive trees, vine cuttings, and knowledge of grape growing. The region’s undulating golden hills and idyllic vistas are even reminiscent of Tuscany itself. Blue Rock Winery was first settled by Italians who worked at the Italian-Swiss Colony winery just down the road. Acquired by Kenny and Cheryl Kahn in 1987, the estate maintains much of its old-world character, and its original olive trees that are now over 140 years old. Over the years, Blue Rock has been moving toward a low-input cultivation policy that is reliant upon compost and natural amendments rather than chemical fertilizers. Baby Blue is a blend of the five Bordeaux varietals plus Syrah. Blackberry, blueberry, black currant, and anise are present on the nose and the palate, and the wine has a full, velvety mouthfeel.

Pairs well with grilled salmon, pork tenderloin, meaty pasta. $36.99

Upcoming Gloucester Safety Training for Commercial Fishermen

Dear Joey,

I am writing from Fishing Partnership Support Services. With one of four port office in Gloucester, we are dedicated to improving the health, safety, and economic security of commercial fishermen, their families, and their communities. 

We will be hosting a free, two-day safety training for commercial fishermen at U.S. Coast Guard Station, Gloucester on April 13th, and 14th. We invite your coverage of this training in either pre-date sharing of information and/or coverage of the training itself.  

Below, I have included a bit more detail regarding what transpires during each day of training: 

·       Day One: Safety & Survival 

This training is designed for all fishermen, including crewmen, to learn or hone fundamental skills. Through hands-on training, fishermen learn about EPIRBs, Signal Flares, MAYDAY Calls, Man Overboard Recovery, Firefighting, Flooding & Damage Control, Dewatering Pumps, Immersion Suits, PFDs, & Life Rafts. Commercial Fishermen who attend are eligible for a 50% rebate off a Lifejacket they purchase after the trainings. 

·       Day Two: Drill Conductor Certification 

During this second day, fishermen dig deeper into what they learned in the Safety & Survival Class, including new information in cold-water survival, helicopter rescues, stability, liability, and emergency procedures. Fishermen who complete these two days of training are Alaska Marine Safety Education Association certified Drill Conductors, which meets USCG requirements under 46 CFR 28.270(c). 

While commercial fishermen work in one of the most dangerous occupations in the country, we endeavor to equip them with the knowledge and skills to fish more safely. At-sea preparedness has proven to save lives. Please visit our website, www.fishingpartnership.org to learn more.
