‘Current’ trend: As chain retreats, nonprofits rise

For many people across eastern Massachusetts over the past couple of years, the question has become less “if” you were profoundly disenchanted with what your local community newspaper under chain ownership but rather when you might get motivated to do something about it. With today’s publication of its inaugural print edition, the Marblehead Current joins the ranks of news nonprofits that have sprung up increasingly within the footprint of Gannett, formerly known as Gatehouse Media, the parent company of the Marblehead Reporter, as Gannett increasingly abandoned local reporting. One of the earliest such ventures, the online-only Bedford Citizen, was founded in June 2012 by three volunteers who had been active in their local chapter of the League of Women Voters, Meredith McCulloch, ...

C.W. Hood yachts launches first fully electric center console

C.W. Hood Yachts recently launched the first truly New England inspired, fully electric center console. The beautiful Hood 26E was conceived, designed and built right here in Marblehead. Chris Hood and chief designer David Robison set out to create a vessel that looked more like a classic yacht than a spaceship. The carbon fiber hull and deck are rock solid yet light as a feather, and its current gray primer finish will soon be completed Awlgrip, with a handy swim platform, powder-coated rails, custom cushions and of course, dual Yeti coolers for summer excursions.  The only wood is the stylish teak console top adding classic appeal, a boat with the perfect balance of low maintenance, durability and beauty. Her electric propulsion is silent, easily charged, and all m...

Marblehead Chamber of Commerce celebrates ‘great leadership and service’

Marblehead Chamber of Commerce celebrated "great leadership and service" during its 70th annual meeting on Tuesday in the Corinthian Yacht Club's banquet room with its draw-dropping views of Marblehead's skyline serving as the evening’s backdrop. The state of the local chamber, the nonprofit's board members report, is sound and on solid footing after a rocky two years plagued by a pandemic. "Marblehead is a special place," Katherine Koch, whom the nonprofit hired nearly a year ago, told members. "These past few years have presented a number of challenges, but the resilience of our community and the partnership between our businesses and organizations have stayed strong. It's been a pleasure helping our town get back to enjoying events and activities." The Marblehead Chambe...

Marblehead Chamber of Commerce readies to bestow awards, celebrate service

Marblehead Chamber of Commerce will bestow upon Brian Wheeler the Rey Moulton Person of the Year Award before its membership on Tuesday. "I don't think of myself as a big deal, but I know the award is a big deal," said Wheeler. "I'll be honest I don't feel a minute different, but I am humbled by it." Wheeler has been the longtime chairperson of the performing arts portion of the Marblehead Festival of Arts, and that job includes oversight of as well as getting the ducks in a row for the Crocker Park Concert Series. The undertaking takes a legion of volunteers to pull off and months of planning. The Crocker Park Concert Series returned in July after a two-year hiatus. In an interview with the Mabrlehad News, Wheeler said the Performing Arts Committee takes very seriously its duti...

During volatile times, Marblehead AAA bond rating keeps borrowing costs down

Interest rates are rising in increments of 0.75 percent. The inflation rate is at 8.3 percent. Labor and supply chain issues persist. It's a volatile period to invest, yet these are also the times when municipalities with good bond ratings can save taxpayers money. The town's AAA bond rating, the highest achievable, did just that when the Marblehead Select Board recently issued $12.3 million in bonds, representing a little more than half of the Proposition 2 1/2 debt-exclusion override that voters approved in June. "The town approved a little over $24 million in capital projects [under Question 1]," said Michael Carriette, interim finance director and treasurer/collector. "Based on the timeline of capital projects, we went out to bid for $13 million." In volatile times, municip...
