2019-11-21 The More Things Change the More They Stay the Same by Crofoot
2019-11-21 The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same, submitted by Beverly Crofoot from the collection of the Bayside Historical Preservation Society. The photo illustrates two issues the Northport Village Corporation is reviewing currently. The first is the seawall (the southern portion is depicted here), for which the voters approved a substantial sum this past August. Not yet constructed when this photo was taken were the Northport Yacht Club and the sewage treatment facility. The second issue depicted is parking, quite haphazardly executed in this photo. The Governance Committee is currently undertaking a review of the Bayside Parking Ordinance.

2019-07-21 Nosedive, photographed by Tim Samway. There was a lot of excitement (and not the good kind) on the Penobscot Bay today when the Northport Yacht Club’s John Short Series Race #5 was cut short by a sudden squall. First, the non-participating catamaran pictured here, captained by Bo Brigham, pitch-poled, throwing both sailors (Bo and his girlfriend Betsy) into the bay. Due to the windy conditions, Betsy and the boat were separated, and she had to swim to shore, where she was assisted by Lisa Webster. Almost simultaneously, racer Danny Webster and his girlfriend, Taylor, were also thrown from Danny’s Dart catamaran and rescued at sea by the crew of Erik Ekberg’s Flyer. Fortunately, all sailors ended up being safe and accounted for, both capsized boats were rescued, and damage was minimal. Great thanks to the many Baysiders who came to the rescue. They say “It takes a village,” and this Village steps up when needed!

The foreshadowing was perfect, as power was restored about an hour later. The cruise ship still seems to be pacing in the background, coursing with the tides through most of the day and spending the night anchored in the bay.”
