The latest bout of COVID infections in town appear to have diminished. Fortunately, this strain hasn’t caused severe symptoms in most people. Hopefully, everything will return to normal in the near future.

The Frankfort Congregational Church held its next-to-last turkey supper last Saturday. The year’s final supper will happen on Oct. 29, and I’ll announce more details as the time draws near.

Next, I live on Loggin Road, but it well could be called “Thunder Road,” given the way most everyone drives. Hardly anyone obeys the 30-mph speed limit on the in-town section. In fact, I have problems with tailgaters when trying to turn into my own driveway. I have never witnessed such a blatant disregard for traffic laws. And just think, I can recall when this was just a quiet, country road.

A power outage struck Frankfort, Winterport and Bucksport last Saturday about 1 p.m. As of the time of this writing, there is no indication as to when power will return.
