The November 29th Issue of The American
We are simply seething holiday spirit this week.
Our lead feature is a very nice piece about Everybody Eats, Ellsworth’s free dinner, and a group of developmentally delayed adults who pitch in to set and clear the tables. Sweet photos, too.
Bucksport State Sen. Richard Rosen got an early Christmas present from Gov. LePage: He’s been named director of the newly created Governor’s Office of Policy and management. Lots of responsibility, but a real compliment for a legislator whose conscientiousness is legendary.
And a fond farewell to an extraordinarily effective bank CEO. Joe Murphy, president and CEO of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, announced this week that he’ll be retiring in June. Big shoes to fill? Oh yes.
The biomass boiler is up and running at Verso, Maine Coast Memorial Hospital has added weekend urgent care to its menu of services and — you heard it here first — Santa is coming to town: Saturday, 11 a.m., Main Street. Be there. Better not pout. Better not cry.
All this plus high school basketball, crab fishing, arts, food, cops and courts, a DVD review and a lovely feature about an Ellsworth girl who bakes cookies and sells them to raise money for charity. What’s the matter with kids today? Not a thing.
All in The American ... The Ellsworth American ... serving the community since last Thursday.
