It’s raining as I type on this dreary day, but it was nice earlier. Our temps are improving, and it is time for lawn clean-up.

Mt. View High School had the food box give-away today. Saw a long line of vehicles waiting. I believe this is for the first Thursday each month. It helps people out. Food prices are high. Noticed the gas price at the local Hilltop store was down to $3.729 per gallon. Town Meeting is April 8, Saturday, 10 a.m. at MVHS. Hopefully folks attend.

Looking for pattern

Am looking for a pattern for a wreath that is made out of tissues. Let me know if you know how to make this. I make them out of rug yarn only, and of course inside use only.

Searching for an old friend

I have been trying to locate Regina Lurvey, who used to live in Knox near the Larrabee Farm, as I believe her father worked for Newton’s family. She moved to Ellsworth, I believe.


Heather “Betsy” Garrold from here in town has announced her candidacy for the new House of Representatives for the District #38 seat. If interested in talking to her contact her at 568-3302. Good luck!

Get Well

Here’s hoping Marilyn Larrabee Schofield is getting better soon. She is at EMMC, very sick, diagnosed¬† with a deadly blood infection, anaplasmosis, from a tick bite that wasn’t detected for a period of time. She had other problems too. Prayers needed for her too. Online there is a GiveSendGo created by her daughter Teresa Hardy. Any help is appreciated for her. Any cards, cheerful encouragement may be sent to Jennifer Schofield, 472 Bagley Hill Rd. Troy, Me. 04987. Thanks! This info is from Teresa.

I have an update on Marilyn Scofield. She has been transferred to Oak Grove in Waterville. She will have several weeks of rehab and healing. The family thanks all for the support. Thinking of her.

Until next time,

I see the daffodils and crocus are starting to show up now. Been a long winter, glad it’s over. Tree’s budding out. Pussy willows everywhere I’ve seen.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind always!
