Trekking ’round the ponds


Volunteers are invited to check the trail conditions at two properties — Forge Pond and Mill Pond conservation areas, from 3 to 5 p.m. this Friday, May 24.  Both properties are located just to the north of the Head of Westport and include some scenic views of the upper end of the Westport River’s East Branch.  Meet at the property on Forge Road to start. Wear sturdy shoes and heavy gloves.  Bring your own hand clippers or loppers and water to drink.  Call 508-636-9228 for further information.

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.
