The July 31st Issue of The American

State police are investigating a stabbing in the town of Sullivan that occurred Wednesday morning. By 9:30 a.m., ambulance crews were on the scene on the Ashville Road and two people — a man and a woman — were in custody. Page 1.

If you are of a certain age, the word "drone" conjures up the image of a crashing bore. No more! Drones are causing a fair amount of excitement these days as police, legislators and people who want to be left alone deal with the flying eye in the sky. Page 1.

Blue Hill Memorial Hospital has awarded the interim CEO the permanent job. We have the interview!

Oh, we meant to mention: Ellsworth American classified ads get results! A young man from Maryland put a marriage proposal in the paper as a "wanted" ad and guess what? She said "yes." Awwwwww. Page 1.

We've got another great, big issue of our Out & About summer magazine in today's edition: lots of ideas about places to go and things to see. Also inside today: "August in Ellsworth" — everything that's going on in our fair city starting Friday. Hint: there's lots.

All this plus American Legion baseball, an interview with an artist who's been painting for seven decades, football practice, photos from the Rotary's pancake breakfast, cops & courts, honor rolls, a preview of the Winter Harbor Lobster Festival and the story of a Lamoine man who made a moose.

It's all in The American ... The Ellsworth American ... serving the community since 1851, three years before the territories of Kansas and Nebraska were created.

The Ellsworth American is located at 30 Water Street in Ellsworth, Maine.  For more information please contact us at (207) 667-2576 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
