Both Pattersons rock! Jane would be proud of you. On this Memorial Day eve. as a 24 year veteran, I would like to remember and salute all veterans but particularly my fallen comrades who gave their lives defending our freedoms not the least being the freedom Alan enjoys to come into this room with his provocative opinions on practically everything seemingly just to "stir the pot". We gave you that freedom Alan and others have now taken up the cause to keep it for you, all we can ask is that you not abuse it by continuing to offend so many good Chatham people.On the other hand, I recognize it is your right to do so. Please everyone in Chatham stay well and have a safe Memorial Day holiday with your families.

I am shocked to see the parade of people going by my little house on Queen Anne Rd. It looks like the 4th of July weekend of the past, but with an attitude. No masks, no 6 foot distancing, walking in the road with their backs to traffic, speeding, passing bicycles, enjoying getting away from NY, NJ, CT etc., but what are they leaving behind? Empty grocery shelves, virus and droplets every where they go, and a very sad attitude of disrespect and lack of courtesy. I pray our merchants can survive but I fear we have seen the world change dramatically into an ONLINE ORDER ONLY culture, which ultimately will kill us, maybe more than what a tourist destination will.

A Chatham native, I now live n San Diego and we are doing well here keeping the cases down. Masks are required to enter any establishment, without one you are turned away. Restaurants are beginning to open with adjusted seating so people are six feet apart and you keep the mask on except for eating. You do have a unique situation in Chatham with so many people from other areas moving in and I guess they think they are safe there, wrong thinking. The people who don't want to wear masks are being very selfish, your mask protects me, my mask protects you. That may be a motto for many months to come. So please quit complaining about having to wear a mask, keep your friends healthy and if you feel safer staying home please do.

I do not know, for the life of me, how John has been brought into this. And you are right Judy, I do not come from Chatham, but that does not make me out to be a bad guy, just because I do not come from Chatham. Believe it or not, I am on your side most of the time and I read your posts carefully. If there has been anyone on this site who has been attacked routinely, it has been myself and your very last post is not exactly what one would call pretty.

It's just not in my make up to hear people being told to stay home.

My guess is that Peter is a very hard working guy, maybe even a fisherman, who I would be proud to introduce my grandson to, if that were the case. If only to show him, how hard one works to make a living and now in these difficult times.
