The April 10th Issue of The American
Our very own Beth Alteri is going to be on national TV ... and not just any national TV. She was flown to New York City to be on "The Rachael Ray Show" in recognition of the extreme makeover she did to her body. Diet and exercise helped the Ellsworth woman (an Ellsworth American staffer!) shed 112 pounds. Great story, great photos...Page 1.
Ellsworth, which has a new School Department and a new School Board, now has a new school superintendent. And he's a hometown boy! In fact, his dad was the Ellsworth superintendent 35 years ago. Read all about it.
Speaking of new faces, Bucksport's Town Council is about to vote on naming a Brewer native the next town manager. We've got the scoop! Page 1.
And speaking of town managers ... Ellsworth City Manager Michelle Beal turned the big 5-0 the other day and all the folks at City Hall turned out for the occasion ... dressed in black. We have photographic proof!
We also have photographic proof that the old Moore School, built in 1923, is looking good as it undergoes a major rehab. It looks on track to reopen in August. You won't recognize the joint.
If you're not already booked this Saturday night, plan a trip to The Grand, where they're staging a quiz show — "So You Think You Know Ellsworth." Four teams, tough questions about Ellsworth's history, an MC, lifelines and a Final Jeopardy round. We've got a great preview this week in the Arts section.
All this plus road race coverage, annual town meetings, cops and courts, high school sailing, the Easter services schedule and the story of Passover. If it's happening, it's in The American ... The Ellsworth American ... serving the community since 1851, a year in which Easter fell on April 20 ... same as this year! Makes you feel a sense of continuity, don't it?
