Poetry winner

Congratulations to Alexandria Fountain of Liberty, a 12th-grade poetry class student at Mount View High School. Alexandria earned second place in the Maine High School Poetry Contest at the University of Maine Augusta's 2019 Terry Plunkett Maine Poetry Festival, for her prize winning poem “Riding Back to the 70s.”

As a winning student poet, she won $75 and will read her poem April 5 during the festival’s evening program. Well done, Alexandria!

So sorry to hear of the passing of surf guitar legend Dick Dale this week at age 81. An innovator well beyond his time. Rest in peace.

This just in…

My son has alerted me that Circle K, the gas station and convenient store in Liberty, has increased the price of the treasured Polar Pops from 69 cents to 89 cents. In the United States, Circle K sells 17 Polar Pops every second, according to the company.

That's about it for this week.

Until next time.
