Week 87 — COVID-19 RANDOM NOTES WHILE SHELTERING

Week 87 — COVID-19 RANDOM NOTES WHILE SHELTERING

Children ages 5 to 11 are now eligible for vaccines. Some parents cannot wait to have their children vaccinated. Others are still leery. Epidemiologists and scientists are urging vaccines for this age group. 750,000 Americans have now died of Covid. Wasn’t it just last week the number was 500,000? Unvaccinated are the hardest hit.

The trenches along the South Main Street RR tracks that rattled every vehicle that had to cross have finally been paved. With apologies to Jerry Lee Lewis:

235 years of Camden Heritage Down by the OLD Mill Stream

235 years of Camden Heritage Down by the OLD Mill Stream

By Barbara Dyer

The Megunticook River has been an important part of Camden for hundreds of years. It has made the town successful by historically providing power for many industries as well as providing amazing recreational areas, waterfalls and dams along its 142 foot drop to the sea culminating into a spectacular pair of falls plunging into the ocean right beside Camden Harbor Park. The river and falls are still supporting the town by making Camden an amazing destination as  a unique place to live or visit.

Unfortunately this local treasure may soon be in peril!

Montgomery Dam vote is timely and necessary

Montgomery Dam vote is timely and necessary

It was a pleasure to read Sarah Miller’s thoughtful piece in PenBay Pilot on the timing of the vote for Montgomery Dam. It was a model of civil discourse that I hope to live up to. 

I agree with her premise, that the town needs more discussion on whether or not to destroy Montgomery Dam and its waterfall, but I disagree with her conclusion: that a vote would be premature. 

The vote, by the way, is likely to take place at the time of the June 2022 meeting, which is seven months away.

Week 86 – Covid 19 Random Notes While Sheltering in Place

The season is turning with cooler, calmer and brighter weather after the nor’easter’s high winds beached some boats and left some households without power. The PenBay Pilot featured reporter Sarah Thompson’s excellent photos of beached boats on Sandy Beach and Dick’s Beach and their recoveries.

Dear Friends: Hope

Dear Friends: Hope

In this past year I came across one of the loveliest quotes that has ever found me; from Rabindranath Tagore, “Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”

I have that taped to my computer and I see it every day…it never ceases to get me. My, my, my…how I wish I could craft an image that pure.

Our seemingly everlasting summer has broken and it’s cold and wet out there today. Yes, we’re heading into more darkness, but always, always there’s light.

Montgomery Dam Produces a Thunder Not a Gurgle

Montgomery Dam Produces a Thunder Not a Gurgle

Montgomery Dam is perhaps Camden’s most venerable senior citizen. According to the Interfluve report, recently completed for the town, its first iteration occurred in 1771, the same year the town of Camden was incorporated. This was 49 years before Maine became a state, five years before the Declaration of Independence and 17 years before the U.S. Constitution was passed. George Washington was only 39 years old.
