The November 15th Issue of The American

We already have used and overused the headline “Blowin’ in the Wind” in our continuing coverage of the wind turbine farms springing up hither and yon. So let us just say, plainly, that more turbines are planned for northern Hancock County. The Osborn selectmen heard from the proponent (First Wind) last Thursday and the voters of Eastbrook will learn more next month. (What do you mean, “Where’s Osborn?” It’s on Route 179 above Waltham.) It’s an interesting business. See our story on Page 1.

Looks like good news in Prospect Harbor where the new owners of the old Stinson sardine cannery plan to hire 100 people for their lobster business. Page 1.

Too much tragedy in this week’s American. After fire destroyed an Ellsworth man’s home he took his life. And a George Stevens Academy grad is among the four victims of a terrible fire in Orrington Saturday.

We have an interview today with state Rep. Louie Luchini of Ellsworth, who just got voted into a second term. He has high hopes for working with the legislators across the aisle. How the Democrat-dominated House and Senate will interact with Governor LePage may be another story. Page 1.

This week’s paper is sweetened by the inclusion of your annual Holiday Gift Guide. All kinds of suggestions about what to get for whom and where. Very handy.

All this plus business news, cops, courts, school boards, selectmen, the Ellsworth City Council and something quite new to our experience — Pecha Kucha. It’s a forum for airing ideas. They did it in Stonington. Read all about it in The American ... The Ellsworth American ... providing the community with a whale of a service since 1851, the year “Moby Dick” was published.
