This week sure just flew by! When you read this the kids are spending their first day back in school. So, please, be careful, alert, and watch for the kids and school buses.
Neil Olson called me last week to give me an update on the Maine Black Flies. First off, a correction to what I wrote for information last week. The team was attending a tournament in Cooper Town, N.Y., rather than Copper Town. This was my mistake, sorry. The latest information I have is that at the time of his call the team had four wins and two losses. On the 18th the single elimination games were starting. I will let you know what the final standing of the team turned out to be, as Neil is extremely busy right now with the New England Trapper's weekend coming right up. He sure has done a great job making certain preparations before he left with the team by putting up signage and tents. Thank you, Neil, for all your hard work and efforts for the neighborhood and area youths!
You may already have noticed that Jarrod Crockett is on the campaign trail again this year. He, too, is a great asset to our neighborhood. Do hope you will support him again.
Last week, Jarrod was in Augusta for Judiciary Committee hearings. They reviewed the resumes and applications of several individuals who are seeking either appointment or reappointment as judges to the Superior or District Court. It was a non-partisan process and they found all the candidates qualified.
Cherri Crockett let me know that she completed 22 miles of the 38-mile Grafton Loop Trail in two days. Sadly she couldn't finish at the time due to a knee injury. She loved the scenery and can't wait to do the west side of the trail once her knee heals again. You are quite amazing, Cherri; we are all thinking of you and wish you a speedy recovery.
I had kind of thought that my last Trivia question was easy, yet am surprised that this time there were only two responses. Thank you, as always, to Charlie Newell and also Nancy Mercer. The purpose of the book was to raise funds for improvements to the so-called Bartlett Cemetery, which lies beside the River. In particular to erect a fence in order to keep the cows out. Now it is time for some more reading to come up with the next Trivia question for you.
Remember, never hesitate to either call me 824-3220 or e-mail email@example.com with question, tips, news or anything you want to share.
Enjoy your week.
