Science proves Earth is Flat - Terra convexa

WASTED TIME --- by Larry Fillmore

I just review the Town Council Workshop conducted on April 10, 2018 and was very upset over the length of the workshop. Councilor Fern LaRochelle, I believe, is incapable of asking a simple question. Mr. LaRochelle has to go into a dissertation on EVERY question. I do not know if Mr. LaRochelle is really that dumb or he just likes to hear himself talk. I have known Mr. LaRochelle for several years and do not find him to be stupid so I guess he just likes to hear himself talk. I believe he thinks the more he talks the more important he is.

The meeting lasted for one hour and thirty-three minutes and if you eliminated all the dissertations the meeting could have been reduced by approximately forty-five minutes, if not more. Mr. LaRochelle has some great ideas but he needs to eliminate all the dissertations on every comment.

I do not know about your time but my time is precious to me and to listen to Mr. LaRochelle repeat everything or babble on and on, just waste my time.

Mr. LaRochelle, please continue to ask all the right questions but without the dissertation.

Second Amendment Rally in Augusta --- 800 plus people attended in the cold

I made a count and estimated 1000 people but they told us it was 800 or more attending the Second Amendment Rally in Augusta today.   Pictures Below.

Over 800 people standing in the cold for over 2 hours listening to dozens of speakers and no visible News Media.   Hmmmm      Do our local News Media report the news or are they trying to cover up this event?

Time To Do The Right Thing by Dot Fitzgerald

As most of you know, I have been attending all town Council meetings and have missed only the first budget workshop.


Now that Ryan Leighton has moved on to bigger and better things, the Town is advertising for someone to manage the Transfer Station and PublicWorks Departments.


I was at the Budget Workshop when the Town Councilors, all but Mark Lunt, were criticizing workers at the Transfer Station for not checking vehicles for dump stickers. They said that people were dumping illegally, and we, (the town) was possibly losing money.

I spoke up at the next council meeting and asked how could they, Town Manager Diane Barnes and members of the Town Council, expect them to do that when they do not have enough help. They have 3 compactors to monitor, compact when full, monitor the whole, empty that when full, plus check when people are leaving off building material, etc, and writing receipts.

The Transfer Station needs a full-time on-site manager to oversee day to day operations. Marcel Obie is perfect for the job as head of the Transfer Station.  He knows the job knows the people and the workers respect him.

I suggested that they make Marcel Obie new head of the Transfer Station. That was met with stares by all.

Now on the Public Works Department:

Why advertise for someone to head that up when we already have someone there that knows the job, knows the town, and is respected by the workers and has been head of Public Works. and was doing the job when Ryan was head. He has a 6 year proven track record as Public Works director. 

Call your Town Councilors and ask them to make Elwood (Button) Beals head of the  Public Works Department again.

Leave personalities out of it, and do the right thing for the Community
