Something special for mom


East Bay Life is collecting Mother's Day messages for publication the week of May 7.

Is there a certain mother in your life who means the world to you? Here's your chance to show her. You know she doesn't want you spending your money on her, and taking the time to say thanks is always a perfect fit.

Submit your messages, notes, or poems to, along with your first (or full) name and hometown.

But this isn't the kind of gift you can run out and grab at the last minute. The deadline is Friday, May 2.

All she ever wanted was for you kids to get along — now here's your chance to give her something extra.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
