Adventures with my father | Print |
Wednesday, 11 June 2014 08:47

By Belinda Quellette
Special to the Aroostook Republican
    I was 12 years old and madly in love with snowmobiling. We owned a garish yellow Bombardier and a blue and white, already outdated Evinrude. Snowmobiles were not flashy, aerodynamic vessels perched on slick, razor sharp skis back then. Most of them were 18 horsepower, stiff-seated, rustic, rough riding, simplistic machines that reeked of gas fumes and oil. Silver flying snow saucers carrying squealing, screaming kids could easily outrun these snowsleds of yesteryear with very little problem. They were a delightfully dangerous way to enjoy the winter season and I savored every second I spent driving one.
    I did not play basketball, baseball, or soccer; as a matter of fact, there was very little about me that could be considered athletic. When I perched myself upon the orange seat of my old Evinrude, however, I displayed the amazing ability of a true “rider.” I knew just when to lean, slow down, increase my speed, get up on my knees, shift my weight, and blaze a trail where no snowmobile had gone before.
    I guess it was because of these incredible maneuvers that my father invited me to join him on a Sunday afternoon for a rather challenging ride from the outskirts of Caribou, over the wavy fields of Presque Isle, across the Aroostook River and down to the shores of Hanson Lake. A friend of my dad’s was accompanying us and he assured my father and me that the trail would be a piece of cake; even for an enthusiastic 12-year-old who believed she had found her niche.
    I did well on the straightaway. I even crossed the Aroostook River with ease; my Evinrude and I clambering up the steep bank with no hesitation. I remained close to the back of my dad’s Bombardier and when he suddenly disappeared over the ridge surrounding Hanson Lake, I was right behind him with my hands tight on the handlebars, my knees strong beneath me and my eyes straight ahead. Because of the weight of the Evinrude, I found myself passing my dad’s canary yellow sled in no time and I am sure I heard him shout, “Whoah! Slow that thing down.” It goes without saying, however, that I could not for the life of me slow that very determined old snowsled down and that is exactly how the runaway Evinrude, along with its terrified operator, ended up in Hanson Lake.

LCS second-graders gear up for a special bike ride | Print |

Staff Writer
    The Limestone Masonic Lodge No. 214 has always been involved in their community, whether holding fund-raising suppers or donating a large number of girl’s and boy’s bikes to all the second-grade students of Limestone Community School.
    The “Masonic Bikes for Books” program was held at LCS on May 23, and is an event the Masonic Lodge in Limestone has been participating in for a number of years, as the bike giveaway has become an annual event that has been going on for five years with the help of LCS second-graders, who are challenged with reading a certain number of minutes before they can earn their bikes. Masonic Lodge member, Randy Hopkins admitted the Masons do a lot for the community, but they certainly aren’t doing it for the recognition.
    “This is just one of the programs that the Masons do to support the community we are living in and close to, but it is the most visible. We as Masons do things to support and help our communities but remain out of the public eye because it is not the attention we seek,” said Hopkins. “We just believe in doing what is right.”

    CARIBOU — Approximately 100 veterans, friends and family members from all over the state attended the annual Flag-Raising Ceremony on May 12 at the Northern Maine Veterans Cemetery.
    Thirty American flags were dedicated to and raised in honor of veterans who served in wars spanning the last 75 years. Thirty flagpoles were adorned with the red, white and blue colors of the American flag, while 29 of those flags were specifically designated for deceased veterans being honored by their loved ones.
    The flags rested at half staff, as family members, friends and veterans crowded around the 30 individual flagpoles and waited for their cue to raise each flag to full staff.
    Harry Hafford, chairperson for the Northern Maine Veterans Cemetery Corporation, announced the names of those who raised each flag and who they were raising the flags in honor of, along with the fact the flags will proudly fly until Veteran’s Day on Nov. 11.

Teenager’s WWII post cards have touched lives across the country | Print |
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 09:55

By Natalie De La Garza
Staff Writer
    CARIBOU — With limited communication between soldiers and their families during World War II, a teenage Theresa Madigan from Caribou played a tremendous role in relaying messages from prisoners of Germany back to their loved ones on American soil.
    Every night, at 7 o’clock, the teenager would sit down in the family’s kitchen and tune in to the evening broadcast coming from far across the ocean and hastily pen every piece of information possible; she may not have been fighting for her country or working at a munitions factory, but nestled next to the radio in her kitchen, Theresa found her own way to help the war effort.
