The appeals board met at the Town Office on Thursday night to work on an easement. It was granted.

Santa and tree-lighting

A reminder to bring the little kids to the Knox Town Office on Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. for hot cocoa and snacks, the 5:30 p.m. tree-lighting, and Santa and Mrs. Claus at 6 p.m. The Knox Boosters Club is hosting this event. Everyone is welcome.

And so it snows

Tonight, as I write this, it is snowing outside. The youngsters will be happy to see some snow. Seeing as it is nearly December it's time to see the ground all white and snow-covered.


Basketball season is in full swing now.Good luck to all the teams. Go, Mount View!

Get well

Wishing Tisha Downer good wishes and a speedy recovery on her latest chemo treatments at the Cancer Center in Augusta. Get better real soon. We are all pulling for you.

Wishing Emmy Doughty a speedy recovery since his fall. Hope you are doing good.


Condolences and sympathy to the family and friends of Elizabeth Gaudette, who lived in Brooks for quite some time. She passed away from cancer at the age of 47. She will be missed. Thinking of all of her family.

This weekend

There are numerous events going on during the weekend. Mount View Craft Fair Dec. 1  9 a.m.-3 p.m. Auction at Jackson Community Center off Route 7 starts at 9:30 a.m. For ladies only, many nice things are being offered. Patchwork Plus Open House Dec.1 and 2. Belfast Boathouse hosts a fundraiser for Hospice of Waldo County Dec. 1,  8 a.m.-3 p.m., with many crafters. Check out some of these events on Saturday. There will be something for everyone.

Retired Game Warden John Ford Sr. will be at Mount View to sign his new book. Now that sure ought to be interesting. Always loved his newspaper writings, and would try to figure out who he was writing about. He sure could tell it like it was. Must find out if he ever chased after any of my family ... ha, ha.

Newborn son

Cliff and Gloria Doughty are grandparents again. A son, Clay Brandon Doughty, was born to Kyle and Chey. He weighed 4 pounds, 9 ounces, and was 16 inches long. Congratulations to all the family.

Pearl Harbor Day

Remembrance of Pearl Harbor Day is Dec. 7. Let us never forget. The Wreaths Across America project is soon upon us. Thousands of wreaths will be trucked to Arlington to be placed on veterans' graves. They will also be placing them on graves at the Maine Veterans cemeteries, and at the Veterans Hospital at Togus. This week is the Christmas gift shop for the patients at Togus, where they get Christmas gifts for their families. A little later this month they will all get gifts. This is all free, and sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. Other groups donate to this as well. On Monday night several of us from Fairfield Post 14 and Unit 14, Unit 99, and me from Unit 50 attended the banquet for the EDNVP Joan Reinholdnt from Pennsylvania at Richmond Post 132.

Until next week

Have a nice week. Hopefully, deal with the cold weather, and snow if we get it. Keep those batteries in working order in the smoke alarms. Donate to "Warm Waldo," Tanya Hubbard's heating fuel project. Take a moment to sign the petitions at Hilltop Store. Thanks.

Jackie and Bill Bryant have their Christmas lights on by Route 137, and we can see them from our house.They look so pretty.
