Many years ago, a regional meeting addressed the issue of lack of access to medical facilities, attended by emergency medical technicians, local politicians, medical professionals and healthcare administrators. The EMTs were concerned about the long ambulance ride from Outer Cape towns to the region’s closest emergency room in Hyannis. In summer, a 50-mile trip could take more than an hour. In addition, the ER was the only option for people with minor ailments that needed attention after their doctor’s office had closed, as well as tourists who had nowhere else to go to address a vacation-related minor injury.

Ideas such as satellite hospitals were put forward, but no one mentioned urgent cares, which at that time, were popping up in rural areas all over the country. It took a while, but urgent care facilities are now widespread on the Cape and South Shore.

It’s a business model we’re sure to see more companies explore. According to Consumer Reports, the number of urgent care facilities in the U.S. increased from 6,400 in 2014 to 8,100 in 2018, with another 500 to 600 expected to open.

Helen Addison Owner, Addison Art GalleryHelen Addison, Owner, Addison Art Gallery 43 South Orleans Road, Orleans

What does an art gallery owner do? As a fine art gallery owner, I’ve created spaces where creators and appreciators connect. I continually work to keep the spaces intriguing, deepen connections, and add to our community.

How did you get into this business? An accomplished artist friend was lamenting that galleries were disorganized and didn’t know how to market. With decades of professional marketing experience as the owner of an award winning advertising and public relations agency, and a love of art, I saw a fit for my skills and passions. We’re celebrating our 25th season this year.

How do you find artists? We probably receive over 100 submissions each year from artists wishing to show with Addison Art Gallery. We carefully review each one, as well as keeping an eye on regional and national artists showing promise. We are carefully selective, and strongly committed to the artists we already represent.

What is special about Cape Cod art? The light. The inspirational history. The Cape is home to our nation’s oldest, continually operating art colony, nurtured the bohemians who scattered themselves amidst the woods and along the shoreline, and offered privacy to American’s greatest realist, Edward Hopper. The supportive artists’ community, from group gatherings at the Addison Art Gallery to Paul Schulenburg’s figure painting sessions. The market. Year round and seasonal residents who honor our creative community, an unending audience of new visitors delighting in the immense talent found on our peninsula. Perhaps it all started with the light. And the beauty.

What is the most favorite part of your job? It is truly a joy to work with the artists I represent, and to develop long standing friendships with so many of our collectors. Perhaps, and all enabled by the patronage of our loyal collectors, my favorite part of the job is sharing the income with worthy non-profits. We are blessed to live and work on Cape Cod, and my gratitude is abounding.

Local Man Returns To Cape Fishing Roots Sam Fuller used to crew or run a boat for another Chatham captain for half the year and, come winter, leave the Cape for Colorado or New Zealand. “I was ski patrol for a decade or more. I was an EMT, but most of what I did was avalanche control,” Fuller said. He did a lot of explosives work by hand, making bombs to help bring down dangerous snow packs, having mini-competitions to see who could land the lit fuses perfectly. He came back to the Cape full time in 2016, when he was 30. After several back surgeries, Fuller needed to look for something less taxing than gillnetting, but he couldn’t leave his life on the ocean. Fuller also needed some flexibility to run a sailing business out of Stage Harbor for his best friend who had died. So Fuller bought a boat, the F/V Mary Alice, and went into business with Captain Nick Muto, who has two boats of his own. With help from friends and family, they spent the last several months redoing her and launched this summer. Taking people out to harvest their own, like a lobster charter, is something Fuller and Muto are considering, particularly with new interest in dockside sales. Seems like people would enjoy (and pay for) a trip to pick up their own crustacean. SOURCE: CAPECODFISHERMEN.ORGdapibus leo.
