Freedom Town News
Dakota, the lost Collie is still missing. He is 11 years old and a brown sable color (brown with a white chest, neck and legs). He originally went missing from Knox, Maine near Hilltop Store in early July. He was seen on the Greeley Rd in Freedom in mid-July and possibly in Albion and Palermo in early August. There was a Collie found in Windsor at the end of August, but this was NOT Dakota. It is possible that Dakota could have traveled far by now, or a good Samaritan may have taken him in thinking he was just a stray. He also could be in the local area, or back tracking. His family misses him terribly. Please call Paul or Laura Stewart if you see a collie matching Dakota's description at 207-716-6656.

On this past Wednesday, September 11, flags were flown at half mast; the service in New York City was on the t.v. where all the names of those that died on that tragic day were read. It was a sad thing to watch, for it brought back so many memories of that day! I am so sure that everyone remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing when the announcement came over the t.v. and radio, that there was a terrorist attack on U. S. soil. We will never forget, always remember and have respect for the NYC Firemen and Police officers.
The one thing that stands out in my mind is how people were jumping out of the windows of the Towers and the firemen were running into the building to try to save as many people as they could. I pray to God that this sort of thing will never happen again in the USA.
I’ve taken notice that the trees are beginning to change their colors. Soon Maine will be dressed in the beauty of red, green, orange and yellow. Mother Nature will bring out the beauty of the hard wood trees that are mixed in with the pine trees. This is truly a wondrous sight.
Have a great week!
