The September 6th Issue of The American

Why did our mothers caution us to never to lose control of our pickup trucks and collide with sheriff’s cruisers? The answer appears on Page 1 of today’s EA.

You’ll also learn how the kindness of friends, neighbors and complete strangers has brought Darthia Farm back from the ashes.

And you’ll find out why it is that when you ask a group of fishermen how things are going you should be prepared for a long answer.

We’ve also got the latest on the Blue Hill Fair, that state-of-the-art wind farm up near Eastbrook and the plan to create a campground on the Schoodic Peninsula.

All this plus the season-ending issue of Out & About (another home run!), church news (Rev. Emily Taylor is retiring!), the most recent scientific findings on how wonderful blueberries are for your health (not to mention your waffles), and a really nice story about our neighbor, Noel Paul Stookey, and his new album. He’s performing at The Grand next week.

It’s all in The American ... The Ellsworth American ... serving the community since 1851, the year Boston’s Charles Street Jail was built. Over the years, the jail housed James Michael Curley, Sacco and Vanzetti, Malcolm X and suffragists imprisoned for protests when President Woodrow Wilson visited Boston in 1919. Found to be inhumane, the jail was closed in 1990. In 2007, it was reopened as a 300-room, luxury hotel.

Correction: A story on a hearing delay that appeared on the front page of the Aug. 30 edition misidentified Mary Kellett. Kellett is an assistant district attorney for Hancock County.

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.
