There will be a public hearing at the Brooks Firehouse Training Room on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 6:30 p.m. to review changes proposed to the current Building Notification Ordinance, as well as to discuss the selectmen’s proposed “Bridge Jumping Ordinance.” These will both be on the annual town meeting warrant.

Bruce Stubbs and Jane McLaughlin attended Maine Maritime Academy’s “Changing of Command Ceremony” where their son, Ethan Stubbs, was made cadet chief engineer. He will oversee cadet engineering operations of MMA’s ship the State of Maine while in Castine as well as during the cruise in May to Puerto Rico. Ethan has maintained the dean’s list during his three years at MMA and is pursuing a career in marine systems operations.
Brooks’ 200th birthday is coming in 2016. In 1966, townspeople rode from Brooks to Boston on horseback and wagon trains, so we have to get ideas together to be as creative as that. 2016 isn’t really that far away and will require some planning.
