Between the Lines
How do we choose the cover photos for U.S. 1? Sometimes
it’s a strong image that captures our attention, other times it’s
whatever we have available to illustrate a particular story, usually
on a business topic. But because this newspaper aims to help professionals
integrate their business and their personal lives, one third of our
coverage is on leisure and arts events, and sometimes these events
end up on the cover.
Take this week’s picture of a tall ship under full sail heeling into
the wind — what could be a more compelling image? The story about
the ship Jeanie Johnston, by David McDonough — a freelance writer
with an Irish heritage — is also compelling. McDonough tells how
the original Jeanie Johnston crossed the Atlantic 16 times to bring
victims of the Irish potato famine to America. On similar ships, often
dubbed "coffin ships," one fourth to one half of the passengers
died at sea, but the Jeanie Johnston has the proud record of losing
nary a soul. Now a replica of the ship has made an historic crossing
from Tralee, Ireland, and is working her way up the eastern seaboard.
A good story was made better on the night before the paper went to
the printer when we received a fax with details on the ship’s visit
to Bristol. Our article had pointed readers to the ship’s arrival
in New York on July 4, but the new information on the Bristol visit
makes it sound like a fabulous outing for U.S. 1 readers.
Four days of Irish music and dance begin with an arrival ceremony
on Thursday, June 26, at 11 a.m. when Irish tenor Tom McCloskey sings
the national anthems, and Rev. James Von Dreele, port chaplain of
the Seaman’s Church Institute, gives the invocation. The Celtic Memorial,
near the wharf, will be the site for a Roman Catholic mass at noon.
Tours cost $5 and are available on Thursday, June 26, from 1:30 to
6 p.m., on Friday to Sunday, June 27 to 29, from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Remote parking and shuttle service will be provided at the FDR School,
Commerce Bank park, Rohm & Haas, Simon and Schuster, and Bristol train
station. The shuttle buses run from 11 a.m. to 7:45 p.m.
The ship has even spawned a song. To read the lyrics and find the identity of their surprising
