Duncan, the Uniman is everywhere these days. Hard to miss with his flare for fashion. He’s been on the road for the last twenty years. He would love to be invited to a parade.

I had a conversation with a friend recently about traveling with our dogs, their opinion being that the more you love your dog, the less willing you are to go on trips without them. That hit me in a tender spot because as much as I love my dog, I am really look-ing forward to our pending two-week break. Do I feel guilty? Perhaps a little.
My dog, Starr, is like having perpetual toddler in the house. She is a focal part of many of my daily routines. I believe if you take on the responsibility of having a dog, they are a priority. But I don’t think that means you shouldn’t ever travel without them.
Starr is such an important part of our lives and she is definitely one of the greatest stress relievers in existence. I know that some people become so anxious about leaving their pets that they stop traveling altogether. For me, that’s not desirable, but I sure do understand the emotion behind it.

When the Orono Times first went to press, it was at the end of the depression and the start of the Second World War. During the depression doing without was just what was done, and so when food rationing was first introduced by the Wartime Prices and Trade Board in January 1942, not having a full belly would have been somewhat familiar territory for most. Everything from staple pantry items to dairy and meat were limited to ensure that the Allied war efforts could be supported with needed supplies. Today, we are going to look at the impact of food rationing through the war years.
Frank Stapleton is well steeped in local history and politics. On tour with Staple-ton is a fascinating look in the rear-view mirror of life and times in the hamlet of Newtonville. It’s also a look out the front window to see what the future brings in the new parts of town.

Hearing the sounds of children’s laughter on a beautiful summer’s day is always mu-sic to one’s ears. It brings up memories of summer’s past, friends taking advantage of school holidays. Upon investigation, the joyful sounds lead to the shady backyard area at A Gift of Art, where 16 children and their counsellors are engaged in a variety of activities. Not a tablet or cellphone in sight.
