Almost two years ago, Bristol town officials surprised us with discussions about the potential removal of the Bristol Mills Dam.
We hope you’ve heard by now that the Olde Bristol Days parade is happening. We’re currently looking for your involvement. Do you have a business that you’d love to promote? Are you a family or neighborhood who’d love to create memories for your kids that they’ll remember for years to come? Are you one of our “summah” people who want to join in on the fun?
The lowly sandwich is way underrated. When you go out for dinner, or even lunch, a sandwich might be at the bottom of your list of coveted items on the menu, especially during the summer along the coast of Maine. There are so many more exciting things to order: lobsters, fried clams, oysters, scallops, steamers, mussels, fish chowder, fish and chips, burgers and fries … you know.
Voigt in the spotlight: I got to spend time recently with Whitefield actress Elise K. Voigt, the delightful person who plays the role of Maria in the upcoming Bath Shakespeare Festival and Camden Shakespeare Festival productions of the well-loved Shakespeare comedy “Twelfth Night,” directed by Stephen Legawiec. This is Voigt’s second season with the festivals, having debuted last summer in their productions of “Much Ado About Nothing.”
I know it’s summer, it is hot, sometimes humid, but could we all try to stay cool at the transfer station? We have had an unusual amount of unpleasant behavior recently at the station.
It was unfortunate to witness the negative impact of a hand-wringing insurance carrier on the Fourth of July parade in Kings Mills this year.
Hey folks, this past week was a time for givin’ thanks for this ole truckah, as my one-year anniversary of a triple-bypass heart operation came and went. You know, sometimes, in fact too many times, we take life for granted, may it be a rut or routine we’re in, or maybe just not stoppin’ along the way and sayin’ a little thank you to those who cross your path every day.
July Fourth is a day for celebration all over the U.S., and it’s no exception at my 100-year-old family cottage in Cushing.
With the Fourth of July in the rearview by the time this newspaper reaches subscribers, Lincoln County’s peak season is officially here.
A fun new little art gallery: “You’re going to love it!” Those were the words of local artist Elaine Eskesen, speaking exuberantly on the phone after telling me about the new art gallery inside Pine Tree Yarns, her little shop in downtown Damariscotta.
My life has been filled with coincidences. Now I wish I had kept a list of them over the years. Perhaps while I type this column, it may trigger more, so I shall ponder as I write.
Hi again, dear reader, this is your Marilyn Beane’s World just getting started at the end of another week. I have had a difficult time to get at it. I’ve had a lot of interruptions what with my sweetheart being so sick and all.
The Washington Schoolhouse will be hosting the Katahdin Valley Boys on Saturday, July 7 at 7 p.m. The Katahdin Valley Boys are a high-energy bluegrass band, with Round Pond’s very own Steve Bixby on bass.
I made a sandwich for dinner the other night. I never do that. OK, not never, obviously, but rarely. Like twice a year. And it wasn’t because I was feeling lazy. I love spending time cooking dinner almost as much as I love eating it. Plus I get to sip a Manhattan while cooking :-).
Congratulations, Lincoln Theater!: I traveled out to Monhegan Island last Friday, June 22 and took in a fair amount of art – the new shows up at The Island Inn and the Monhegan Museum of Art & History, and the pottery, sculptures, and jewelry at Edison Studio.
