The Knox Station Grange served up their last supper of the season and it was a great success. Many thanks to all who came to the suppers this year. We will look forward to serving you next year.

​The Thorndike Fire Department's annual open house is over for another year. There was lots of good food and conversation. Senator Mike Thibodeau stopped by and presented our Firechief, Seth Curra, with a special Fire Chief's shovel, made by the Thibodeaus' company. He is in the process of presenting one to each of the fire chiefs in Waldo county. That was a nice surprise. Dustin Tibbetts won the door prize. There was a fire call during the open house. They responded to a structure fire in Jackson.

Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Linda Patten Taylor, who passed away on October 13th. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

My old schoolmate, Don Bagley, and I have many late evening conversations about the old days. We both get a few laughs. That is a good way to end the day.

​There is a sick fox hanging around this area. Every time there is someone around with a loaded gun, it seems to stay out of sight. Eventually, it will be out at the right time. I have never seen a fox look as bad as this one. Of, course, at the rate I am going, it will die on its own. Everyone in this area should keep a watchful eye on their animals.

​The next Selectmen's meeting will be Wednesday, November 2, 6:30 p.m.

Remember to get your news items to me by Friday of each week.

Robert Louis Stevenson was quoted as saying, "Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but playing a poor hand well."
