The news is local and not partucularly substantial save for the one we ballyhoo by title; "The Coast is rough and dangerous but since roads were few and impractical for use in shipping, transportation was by ship, which meant there had to be landings and provision for loading. These small, hazardous harbors were called 'dog-holes' and the tough little ships that used them were called 'dogphole' schooners." Eight period site photographs accompany this story, but these are not well reproduced.
