Cape Cod Times article "Chappaquiddick's Wasque washed away" written by Doug Fraser, June 17, 2012.

CHAPPAQUIDDICK — To Chris Kennedy, the superintendent of The Trustees of Reservations on Martha's Vineyard, the erosion at Wasque was Nature writ large, like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Large trees and brush sliding over the edge of a bluff into the water below, trailing root systems and the thin cap of sod, was high drama, like viewing a lava flow in slow motion.

Still, others couldn't bear to watch as the pace of erosion quickened on the southeast corner of the island and the Atlantic gobbled up hundreds of feet of beach and ate into a forest in less than two years.

Check out the Martha's Vineyard Times article where Hawkeye was presented with a cell phone from the MV Derby Committee for saving a driver from the water. This was a great recognition of Hawkeye and his quick thinking. Great going Hawkeye!

MV Times Article, June 8, 2012 by Nelson Sigelman


Ashley Peters, 22, of Edgartown appeared in Edgartown District Court Friday morning, to be arraigned on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, speeding, and marked lanes violations. State Police Sergeant Thomas Medeiros told Ms. Peters she is fortunate to be able to appear in court.

Ms. Peters was behind the wheel of her 2006 Saturn Ion, driving from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown, when she drove off Beach Road just before Big Bridge, went across a dirt parking lot striking a sign, over a rock embankment, and plunged into Sengekontacket Pond just before 1 am, Friday morning.

Big Bridge spans one of two channels that allow an exchange of water between the pond and Nantucket Sound. At the height of the tidal flow, the current is a rushing torrent.

Bob "Hawkeye" Jacobs of Oak Bluffs is a late night fisherman. Friday morning he was fishing on Big Bridge when Ms. Peters went into the water.

Sergeant Medeiros said, "Mr. Jacobs immediately rushed to the vehicle and assisted Ms. Peters from the vehicle, which floated to the middle of the channel and submerged."

"Well, you never know what's going to happen when you go fishing," Mr. Jacobs told The Times in a telephone conversation.
