In deep preparation for our upcoming, fifth annual Midcoast Lyme Disease Support & Education conference, I’m resharing some very important information that you need to know as we enter into a more active tick season.
Happy Easter to all who celebrate! Chunk here, sporting the costume of the season.
Here and there and everywhere
That pile’s got a clump of hair.
Here is some with lots of grass
Any more details would just be crass.
Get up, get moving: One of my readers, Carol Teel, who serves as artistic director for local senior song-and-dance troupe Hearts Ever Young, among other things, suggested I check out the Conductorcise event on Saturday morning, April 6 at Great Salt Bay Community School in Damariscotta.
In last week’s Lincoln County News, Frank Slason had a letter to the editor supporting President Trump’s plan to “shut down the ports.” Toward the end of the piece, Slason referenced “true Americans.” To me, the question of how we define who is a true American is at the core of so much of the current vitriol, divisive rhetoric, and nationalistic fervor.
It’s April 8 and it’s snowing. Hard. Hello?
Our seasonal neighbors will see many changes in the Twin Villages as they return this year.
This week, we are celebrating National Library Week. This year’s theme is “Libraries = Strong Communities.”
I met a couple last week who are growing mushrooms on Westport Island.
More fine student art: Andrea Cough, who is the art teacher at Bristol Consolidated School, emailed me to say that she had read my recent “Artsbeat” column about the Lincoln Academy IDEAL art show at Rising Tide Co-op in Damariscotta and to let me know that some of her pre-K through eighth-grade art students have a show up at the Bristol Area Library.
If you drive by N.C. Hunt on Route 215 in Jefferson, you will see the message “united we stand, together we rebuild” on one side of the marquee and “thank you firefighters, open for business” on the other.
Many hands gathered throughout last weekend to start the rebuilding of the floats that will accommodate many boats and dinghies at the town landing this summer, and hopefully for many summers to come.
Have you ever had ployes? They’re similar to pancakes and crepes, but better in so many ways.
America’s Big Band: Early in March, I chatted with Cathy Sherrill, the executive director of The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor, for “Artsbeat.” A large part of our conversation consisted of talking about all the cool upcoming shows at the opera house.
I have enjoyed every minute of being a legislator. It is a huge and humbling honor to represent the people who live in Arrowsic, Dresden, Georgetown, Phippsburg, part of Richmond, and my own town of Woolwich. Having been on the job for about two months, here’s a little taste of what it’s like to be a freshman legislator.
