Knox Town News

Hello Folks

Here it is February already. Where has the time gone?  We have had some snow this week, and at least it was light and fluffy, and much easier to shovel the steps and deck. Wow, the weather in the Southern States has been terrible. They are getting a taste of our Maine weather. The problem is, they have no snow equipment, salt etc. I guess even if we complain, we really should be thankful our roads are well maintained, sanded, salted, and all they have to do to make it safer for us. Spring is just around the corner, about 40 more days.

Author  -New Books

Christine Stewart Hubbard has a daughter that is an author. Her name is Brenda Hubbard Smith., aka B. J. Smash. She had a book out, The Seaforth Chronicles, A Twisted Tale of earth, air, fire, and water. Book # 1. She now has two more. The Witches of Merribay, and Book # 2, The Seaforth Chronicles,  McCallister Darkness. They can be found on

These books I have heard are very interesting. Look for them, and help a young Waldo County lady. She lives out of State now., but her heart is still in Maine.

This Friday and Saturday

Check out, " Last Exit " at Bowen's this weekend. A good time to be had by all. Look for Alan Orcutt and tell him you read this on line. Guess I got his name correct.

Weaver's Roadside Variety

Check out Matt when you can. Get Breakfast any time of day, and he'll fill you right up. He has a big giant mixer, and I'm sure the Donuts will be coming soon For Sale. Look for all the Sweet Pastries he has. They are so good. So much for our diets. But a little treat, now and then never hurt anyone. At least I keep telling myself that.


Our condolences to the family and friends of Irene Braley, 93, formerly of Troy, and Athens who passed away on Jan. 31st. She was a member Of Benjamin Berry Ladies Auxiliary. She was a companion to " Slim Thompson " until his death. She had lived with her daughter until she had to go to the Tissues Health Care Center. She will be missed.


Sympathy to the family of  John, and Janice Hawthorne who have both passed away a few days apart. Thinking of their family.

There has not been much going on for news this week. Several folks have been in Florida for vacation time, but have since returned back here. They probably wished they could have stayed much longer. I know some got to enjoy the Fresh Strawberry Shortcakes while there. Yummy!!!

Until next week,

Enjoy yourselves folks. Some folks have been sick with the flu. I hope they get better quick. The youngsters have been busy playing basketball. I have not gone to any games.The little Girl Scouts ordered their cookies for us.

Have A Very Happy Valentine's Day.!!! Somebody loves you, and don't forget it.
