The January 24th Issue of The American
Don’t you just love the Ellsworth Public Library? Sun-dappled, welcoming, comfy chairs, tons of magazines, computers, DVDs, CDs, art displays, meeting rooms, programming for children, lectures, hobby groups, tax forms and friendly staff. Heck, they even have books. The library as community hub ... first in an occasional series ... starts today.
Could it be? A little good news ... in the real estate market? Yes, it could be. In fact, December was gangbusters for many Hancock County real estate brokers. Whether it was the implications of federal tax policy or the feeling that prices have hit rock bottom, sales have been hot hereabouts and throughout Maine. Page 1.
The folks who oppose wind power may soon be tilting at windmills. A proposal has been submitted to the state for an 18-turbine wind farm near the recently completed wind farm on Bull Hill near Eastbrook. Read all about it. Page 1.
Speaking of the energy industry, review of the plan for a great, big LPG tank in Searsport goes on. And on. We were there. Page 1.
Did we mention our ADORABLE, annual Baby Faces pages? Meet the NEW neighbors!
All this plus high school basketball, a gun rights rally, campaign finance reformers heading to Augusta, cops & courts (we’ve just added Superior Court), what’s next for The Next Step, a fire in Blue Hill, an arrest in Franklin and an op-ed column by his grace, the Governor.
All in The American ... The Ellsworth American ... serving the community since 1851, some 10 years before the start of the Civil War.
