We encourage readers to go to Maine Maple Sunday on March 25.
River Arts rocks it: There is a fabulous new exhibit on the walls (and pedestals) of the River Arts gallery in Damariscotta. “Figures & Sculpture” features the work of more than 60 artists from all over Maine, including such names as Belfast’s David Estey and Rockland painter Ronald Frontin.
We all know there’s perhaps no job more important to land than that first part-time job as a teenager, whether that job be on a farm, in a local convenience store, or at a restaurant. For me, I began working closely with my father at a very young age, helping him assemble furniture for the family business, going out on deliveries, and completing countless other tasks as needed until I became a teacher at 23.
In just eight mid-February days, nearly a third of the sea ice covering the Bering Sea off Alaska’s west coast vanished. The loss of ice — a symptom of the changing climate as the planet warms — seriously affects the lives of people who live along the coast.
We are not going to venture a guess as to how the vote on school choice in Alna will go, or give anyone advice on how to vote.
Viva, Rhodes and Garren: “Viva Cuba” is the name of the fantastic photography exhibit currently on the walls of The Carey Gallery at Skidompha Library in Damariscotta. Featuring photographs from recent trips to Cuba by Katherine Garren, of Damariscotta, and Gisela H. Rhodes, of Newcastle, this show is must-see stuff. Rhodes (and her dog), incidentally, volunteer once a week at Skidompha.
Over the past year, I was a member of the Bristol dam committee. However, this letter reflects my own views and not the opinions of all members of the committee.
OK folks, I got a story for ya, you’re gonna love this! So I’m southbound hammah down the other day, somewhere south of Medway, and the CB radio crackles: “Coops are open in Old Town.” Well, for you that aren’t truckah literate, that means the weigh station is open.
On behalf of the trustees, administration, and staff of LincolnHealth, I’m writing today to express our full and enthusiastic support for the No More Delays campaign in Damariscotta. This citizen-initiated effort was created to strongly encourage state leaders to make the completion of the Bristol Road sidewalk project (between downtown Damariscotta and the LincolnHealth Miles Campus) a priority.
The Maine Public Utilities Commission recently voted to take a closer look at the irregularities that have popped up with Central Maine Power’s billing practices after complaints began rolling in from frustrated ratepayers who believe they were being overcharged on their bills.
My husband and I live in way upstate New York near the Adirondack Mountains, but we have been traveling to the Pemaquid Peninsula since our honeymoon 50 years ago. We get up your way often every year, sometimes with our family, sometimes by ourselves. We love the peninsula so much.
While searching for new topics to write about (honestly, how many times do you want to hear about my own cat?!), I stumbled across the “50 Best Pet Websites for 2018,” at ravereviews.org/web/best-pet-websites.
Die Kunst des feinen Porzellans: I am back from my two-week vacation in Bavaria, Germany, where I had a great time. One of the interesting arts-related things I did – besides just taking in some of the beautiful architecture, such as Wahnfried Haus in Bayreuth, the preserved former home of the late German composer Richard Wagner – was check out Seltmann Weiden, the world-famous manufacturer of fine porcelain in the small city of Weiden in der Oberpfalz, where my son and his family live.
Here it is: our annual call to every voting-age resident of Lincoln County to go to town meeting.
I want to thank Linda Shaffer for her recent “Talkin’ Trash” column in The Lincoln County News, “Avoiding household battery fires.” I admit that I was unaware of this fire danger.
