Hundreds of people have passively viewed the Northern Hawk Owl from the berm of Route 130 near the Bristol Consolidated School recently.
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.
Muriel Havenstein and her entire family would like to thank everyone for their love and support over the past five months.
More than $17,000 (raised) was a culmination of dear friends and relatives coming together on this joyous occasion to show their love appreciation and respect for the tiny woman with powerful hands who never wanted anything more than to play music.
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.
I have never written a letter to the editor before but felt compelled to after riding the Rt. 66 snowmobile trail system this past weekend. I want to thank all that are responsible for an excellent job.
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.
To the Editor:
Healthy Kids had a full house at Skidompha Library Saturday night for the 8th Annual Chocolate Fest.
I enjoyed the nice photo of the Bohemian Waxwings in the Jan. 15 issue. I would like to amend the text, however. It’s true that their breeding range is more westerly, but they do come to Maine regularly, even if we don’t see them as often as chickadees.
I was in Skidompha looking for a DVD and found myself picking up “Roots,” the 1977 series based on the book by Alex Haley, which I never saw.
As I write this update on Mon., Jan. 5, the work of the 124th Maine Legislature formally begins.
I am pleased to report that I have been named to the same two committees I served on in the last Legislature, namely Marine Resources, and Business Research and Economic Development committees. These are both great committees to be on from the perspective of the needs of our towns, as well as for the needs of the state as a whole.
Many who live in the Damariscotta region may not fully realize how fortunate we are to have a first class hospital right here to serve our medical needs. But a hospital is only as good as its medical, nursing, ancillary and administrative staffs. The Miles staff is as good as they come.
The citizens of Edgecomb are likely aware there has been much recent debate about the possible acquisition of the Murray water front property ($225,000) on Cross Point Rd. The debate was initiated by Mr. Thomas Boudin.
To the Editor:
I read with interest the “Chimney Sweep Critiques Shoddy Servicing Jobs” article.
Recently, I listened to an out of state pastor relate his troubles in getting his church built “according to code” for his district.
