Bucksport has become one large family in mourning in the wake of the tragic death of a 15-year-old girl last week. We talk to some of the people who knew and loved her. Page 1.
Inside today’s American is our annual Salute to First Responders — those guys and gals who are first on the scene when you need them.

It’s all in The American ... The Ellsworth American ... serving the community since 1851, the birth year of artist Albert Lynch. He was born in Lima, Peru, but settled in Paris, where his paintings of lovely women won major awards in 1890 and 1892. His artwork received a Gold Medal at the 1900 World’s Fair. He enjoyed a career illustrating books and magazines before returning to Peru, where he died in 1912.
