“In article 14, we gave the dead folks more than that.”

— A Belmont resident speaking at the town’s annual meeting March 15 on behalf of Waldo Community Action Partners. Town officials had recommended that all social service agencies be given half the amount of money they had requested. The man was arguing WCAP should receive its full funding request of $4,565, which he noted was less than the $6,500 approved for cemetery maintenance. His appeal proved less than persuasive, however, and townspeople approved the recommended 50-percent figure — $2,282.50.
