On behalf of everyone at Youth Promise, I would like to sincerely thank all the members of the Lincoln County community that supported and attended our show, Guys in Gowns, Feb. 7.
To the Editor:
On Jan. 31, 70 adults and kids spent the afternoon sledding, snow shoeing and making snowmen and s’mores to raise much-needed funds for fuel assistance.
Thank you to Lucy Martin for her wonderful support in helping me try to reach out to Whitefield’s military folks (“Whitefield Bicentennial Quilt square to honor troops,” page 1B, LCN 2/19/09). I know that her article means a lot to others, be they from our town or not, for in remembering Whitefield’s troops, we remember their other brothers and sisters in harm’s way.
Dear Newcastle citizens: the Newcastle Planning Board intends to present to the Selectmen a revision of our Zoning Ordinance for the Village District.
Presented under the banner of preventing sprawl and establishing a pedestrian based downtown, the proposal would radically alter Main St. (Bus. Rt. 1) in Newcastle.
I would like to write a letter of thanks to the Family Holiday Wishes program. I am a single mother of two and work full time, but I was out of work for three months around Christmas.
Each week I pick up the paper and see another article about the CLC YMCA, including photos of members, class schedules, and upcoming events. And each week I think, wow, they are sure doing a wonderful job for the community.
Major Ken Mason looks every inch like the former Marine and career lawman that he is. Although his co-workers at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office can trade tales about Mason’s polished sense of humor, the Ken Mason the general public is more likely to see is the one with the practiced deadpan expression and the burn-a-hole-through-you glare that anyone who has been on the wrong end of a traffic ticket would recognize as an invitation to pipe down.
Healthy Kids has been serving Lincoln County families since 1985 with parent education, home visiting, and school-based programs whose mission is to strengthen families and prevent child abuse. The current budget environment has significantly impacted Healthy Kids and led to restructuring and staffing changes.
There is something about the earliest stages of a power outage that can bring out the little kid in even the most jaded Yankee. At first there is the scramble for the candles, the flashlights, and then the board games and snacks.
Here’s a trend no one predicted: pregnancy. Stand in a grocery checkout line and see the headlines about which celebrity is pregnant; which one has a new baby.
A suggestion to a very noisy nation, (in more ways than one): Quietly contemplate your constitution.
The letters on these pages of LCN have resonated from differing words through rational or scriptural eyes. Although there may be more ways to come to agreement, it hasn’t happened yet.
I guess I should take my own advice, and be more vigilant.
It seems the Village Center Ordinance change I have been arguing against is on the Annual Town Meeting Warrant after all. It was part of the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance amendments that the selectmen put off.
This is an open letter to the citizens of Alna. The reason for this letter is to introduce myself and tell you I am running for the Third Selectmen’s position in our town.
On Jan. 27, the voters of Jefferson showed their approval of the Alternative Organizational Structure (AOS) plan for the Lincoln County School System by an overwhelming margin.
