It's the last week of October and we have now seen temps in the 70s, sun, and rain, and still to come a drop in temps, clouds and a fleeting chance of the white stuff by the first of November. On Tuesday we were back at Truro Vineyard in bright sunshine, picking Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes while getting a little more sun than one would think at this time of year. Now with changes in the air coming or the change in time back to eastern standard time this weekend I don't think extra sun will be a problem.
Plans are coming together to make improvements in Marstons Mills, changes could soon be made to Sampson’s Island, and we have details about where your kids can find goodies this Halloween.
Veterans Beach Park renovations are moving ahead, Town Council could soon vote on e-permitting, and Cape Cod Community College nursing students are giving back. These storiesand more on this episode of Barnstable Today.
I use a variety of oils. Olive oil for salads, salad dressings and even washing my face like they do in Greece; grape seed oil for sautéing and roasting; coconut oil for cooking, baking, moisturizing and swishing; avocado oil for dressings and face washing. Depending on the recipe, pumpkin seed and walnut oils are delicious alternatives in salad dressings too. All are tasty and nutritious, but not the powerhouse of the oil I’ve recently discovered, red palm oil.
We have details about two great Halloween events for families this weekend on this episode of Barnstable Today.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Professor Deniz Leuenberger’s class on public finance and local government at Bridgewater State University last week. The students were eager and engaged, and responded to my somewhat pedestrian presentation on revenues, expenses, taxes and fees with some great questions and genuine interest.
School officials want feedback from parents when it comes to school start time, commercial fishermen conduct training exercises in Hyannis Harbor today, and we have details about the Barnstable High School drama club’s annual haunted house.
