Sympathy to the family and friends of Seaward Heal who passed away recently. Seaward was a “Jack of all trades” with great knowledge of mechanics and spent most of his life working in garages including many years working for Rosey Gerry restoring antique vehicles.

Last week Dick Ballou of Lincolnville Beach passed away. Dick and his wife, Pat, built and ran the Black Horse Inn for many years. Dick was a long-time member of the Route One Committee, helping to put together the plan for the Route One reconstruction through the Beach. Sympathy to his family as well.
