We do not have any real bad news to report at this time like murders, home invasions or other evil deeds. There are, however, potentially serious crimes around all the time. The Hanover Neighborhood Watch was more active a few years ago and the organization’s principles are still very valid. If you see a crime in pro-gress or suspect illegal activity do not hesitate to call 911 and report it. Law enforcement officials will take action and our neighborhood becomes a safer place to live.

Ed Fortin, who grew up in Hanover before moving to Massachusetts, was at his Howard Pond Road home several days last week.
The Rumford Grange met at the home of Butch and Vicki Clark on Ellis River Road Saturday, April 17. The meeting had been put off from April 3 because of illness.
Spring clean-up activities were going pretty good until last Saturday. The three or four inches of snow did not respond to a rake very well at all. Some call the snow “poor man’s fertilizer.” Surely the grass is turning green as the snow melts.
