I have received word of a change in the deadline for getting information to the Republican Journal by all the columnists. Starting now, all info you may want to see in the Searsport Column of the RJ must reach me by early Friday morning. I have until noon to get it in the hands for the paper for the following Wednesday. Anything coming to me on Saturday, Sunday most likely will not make the paper that week.

Gov. LePage Directs Flags to Half-Staff on Monday, Sept. 11

AUGUSTA – Gov. Paul R. LePage has directed that on Patriot Day, Monday, Sept. 11, both U.S. and State of Maine flags shall be lowered to half-staff. Flags will fly at half-staff for the entire day.

“It is important to set aside this day of observance to recognize the sacrifices of those who were injured or lost as a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001,” said Governor LePage. “Ann and I honor and remember these heroes, their families, our nation’s first responders and the dedication of our veterans and military members who are now serving. We must never forget.”

President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation on Friday declaring September 11, 2017 as Patriot Day in honor of the nearly 3,000 innocent individuals who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.

Monday, Sept. 11, starting at 6:30 p.m., the regular meeting of the Planning Board will take place in the Town Hall. This meeting will be televised.

Thursday, Sept. 16, starting at 6:30 p.m., the Selectmen will hold a workshop in the Town Hall.

During the month of August, the Ambulance responded to 58 calls for service and had three inter-facility transfers. The Fire Department responded to 12 calls fore service and issued twenty five burn permits. The Police Department responded to 227 calls for service.

Feel free to pass this on to interested people.
