Yankees vs. Braves
Submitted by Carolyn Dillon
The Yankees had a big victory over the Braves at Davis field Tuesday. The Yankees were a strong force with Brooke McLaughlin doing a great job catching and slamming a triple, bringing in 1 RBI. Brooke's brother, Gage, pitched a scoreless inning in only his second pitching effort. Jerell Arefein had an in-the-park home run, while Joshua Dillon hit a double with 3 RBI. Also pitching were Cody Larrabee, Isaiah Bess, and Jake Turner who pitched 5 strike outs in the game.

For the Braves, Shelby Weston did a fantastic job catching. Eddie Cobb demonstrated his "fast ball" pitching, and also hit a double while up at bat. Eddie also scored a WAY out of the park home run for the Braves. Cody Cobb, following in his brother’s footsteps, pitched a few innings racking up 4 strike outs and he also hit a double while up at bat.

Joe from PAWS
By Bill Sawtell
Nearly three months ago, I adopted a two-year old tiger cat from our local shelter. Val told me his name was Joe ("not after Joe Torre", she stressed, knowing I liked the Red Sox.).

Not only is he a warm and loving friend, Joe is a very intelligent animal who earns his keep by keeping the 1840s home clear of birds, mice, and squirrels. When he doesn't get his dry food on time, he takes the boxes right off the shelf and starts clawing them open as a hint to his delinquent master! When he's outside a window, and I'm in the room nearby, he signals me to open the window, so that he can jump up and in the house. Joe's good at opening loose doors and cupboards to check for mice. He's also a very clean fellow and knows enough to stay far from the road and the big log trucks that come by.

Get yourself a cat from PAWS.


Santa Claus brought our daughters, Kaylea and Kathryn, a beta fish for Christmas, along with the tank and all the fixings. So, one of the girls fed the fish that morning and the other looked very much forward to her chance to feed the fish the next day. Well, the girls didn't get a chance to feed the fish again because it never ate the food in its tank from the very first feeding. We checked the little bugger every day, talked to it and urged it to eat and have a long and healthy life. The fish wouldn't budge and we began to joke that our fish had an eating disorder - it simply never ate! It wasn't all bad though, because since it wasn't eating, it also didn't need to have its tank cleaned. This made Tracy very happy since it would definitely have been Daddy's responsibility to clean the tank.

We knew the fish probably had a pretty limited lifespan since it didn't move a whole lot, eat a whole lot, or really do much of anything. Then on Easter weekend we brought home these adorable little kittens. They didn't pay much attention to the fish at first as they were too small to care. However, over the last few weeks they have certainly discovered the fish and have taken a keen interest in it (yes, 6 and 1/2 months later, the little bugger is somehow still alive - it has always been a big deal if one of the girls noticed that it moved from the top of the tank to the bottom or vice/versa).

Recently we experienced a miracle in our home - Daisy - who is now referred to as the Great White Hunter has begun harassing this poor little starving beta fish. She sits near the tank and taps it with her paw, which frightens the fish enough to swim in very quick circles around her little tank. Then, when we were checking on her the other day we noticed that the water at the top of her tank was completely clear - she had eaten her food from Christmas!!

We have since feed the beta two times and she seems to really be perking up. We truly believe that had we not adopted Daisy and Daffodil, the poor Christmas Beta would now be swimming at the bottom of the septic tank.

Editors Note: Adopting a pet from PAWS is not only fun, it is rewarding!! If you have a adopted a PAWS animal and would like to share your experiences, e-mail Val at to share your story!

On July 3, a Class reunion was held at Sheila Artus Kuchinski's Home in Milo. 17 members of the Class of 1955 and their spouses attended. Also present were 4 Teachers and administrators. A very good time was had by all.

Traditions of a Milo-ite
By Kathryn Witham
I’m changing my name. I made the decision after giving it considerable thought.

My husband doesn't know it yet.....but some of my classmates know it. He won't care if I do change my name, because he rarely calls me by my name, anyway. The Class of '65 held a 40th year reunion from high school over last weekend, and it was wonderful....but I digress. During the course of conversation with some old friends at the reunion, I mentioned that I wish that I had started long ago calling myself Kathryn. I love the name, and it suits a woman of my age better than my childhood name of "Kathy." They didn't necessarily agree with me about thinking "Kathy" was too kiddish, but allowed as how it was never too late to change my name. After all, my real name is actually Kathryn....did you know that? I never had a middle name until I got married and took my maiden name as my middle name. So, I'm Kathryn.....but I'll forgive you if you call me "Kathy," by mistake, in the future.

The reunion was great. A core committee had been planning for several months. I had always done the planning for our other reunions, and to be honest I was just tired of doing it virtually by when it was time for the 35th reunion....I didn't plan one. It was about the same time that I agreed to take the Vice Presidency of the general Milo High School Alumni Association, and helping put that together was about all the energy I could muster. Well, let me tell you, I took a whole ration of "it" from many of my classmates! Surprisingly enough, it was mostly my local classmates who had the most to say. I politely told them that we didn't have a 35th reunion because I didn't feel like doing it, and that I wasn't the only member of the class of 1965, and if they wanted a reunion....have at it! I told them I'd be glad to help and I'd surely attend, but I was tired of always being the one in charge. Most of the complainers still weren't willing to put on a reunion....but, like any group, there were some movers and shakers in our class who wanted a 40th, and so the team was born.

Darla and Ronnie Hamlin along with Scott and Cindy Decker and Steve and Cheryl Hamlin....and of course Carroll and I....met several times over the past year putting the plans together for this reunion. Darla did spreadsheets and address lists. She researched addresses and did multiple mailings, and had a great time being in touch with many of our old friends. We rented the Pleasant Park facility which was the perfect place to hold a reunion of our size. It's such a beautiful setting over there....and it helped that the day was a perfect "10." We hired a caterer to do the food (which was delicious). Cheryl Hamlin was her usual clever self, decorating with black and white tulle, potted ivy plants and a gorgeous floral arrangement in my old black panther planter.

The little extras included magnets with not only our graduation pictures on them....but also our early childhood pictures

on them as well. Cheryl also made little worry stones with the year 1965 painted on them and sweet bookmarks for us all to have. You can bet that when Cheryl is in charge of decorating for a party, you aren't going to send any guest away empty handed. She's got more imagination in her little finger than most of us have in our whole bodies....and in the case of the Class of '65, it just may be more than we have collectively in our bodies.

We hired Joi Stevens to come and take a formal portrait of the classmates who attended the reunion. Joi is very accommodating, and came at the perfect time to get the optimum number of classmates in the picture. Several of our former teachers were invited and attended the reunion. For those of you who are reading this....and who had Mr. Treworgy for a need to know that we were his favorite class. Just in case you thought you were in his favorite were was the class of '65!! I will say that Mr. Oakes made no such declaration.....Holy Cow.....he still looks back, trembling in fear, at teaching Hilda Carlson and Kathy Horne to the same the Milo Elementary School parking lot...a standard shift car...YIKES!! The amazing thing is that he went on to teach Driver's Ed for 40 years after that trauma. Amazing! Perhaps he figured things couldn't possibly get any crazier. Truth be known....I think he didn't hold our nutsy behavior against us because that same year that he was teaching us to drive...he was teaching us biology...and we did our science fair project together. We won first place on a project about the digestive system.

We had classmates fly (and one who drove by herself) from Florida. Our old friend Natalie Solomon drove down from New Brunswick. One of our classmates, Elaine Griffin (who had never attended a reunion before), came from New Hampshire to join us. We had many who came from Southern Maine and many locals who attended both Saturday and Sunday. You see folks, we decided not to let the reunion end on Saturday afternoon....oh no...not us...we planned a picnic at the brand new gazebo for Sunday at noontime, with a little extra fun of boat rides up the Sebec River thrown in for a bit of nostalgia. Cheryl and Steve planned and prepared the picnic, and all we had to bring was our lawn chairs and appetites! Bob and Tanya Ellison (as a special favor to me) provided the pontoon boat, and acted as our tour guides. God provided the incredible weather.

One of my favorite things, that was done specially for this reunion, was a DVD produced by Darla Hamlin. It's a half hour movie of the Class of 1965. Beginning with pictures of Main Street and lots of old Milo buildings....some still standing and some not. The video takes us through our little childhood years....our high school years....our teachers and then a series of pictures taken at past reunions. The whole thing is shown with background music, especially picked for its nostalgia and theme of friendship and small town camaraderie. Darla did a wonderful job.

All in all the weekend was perfect, but for the disappointment of not seeing everyone. Some were ill and just couldn't make it, but what about the classmates who just didn't attend? For whatever the reason you didn't attend....consider yourself hugged and kissed. You were missed.

My husband and I have again begun enjoying our Grilled Chicken Salads.

2 boneless chicken breasts (or one big one - it all depends on how much meat you like at one meal).
several cups of mixed salad greens (head lettuce hasn't any nutritional value, so splurge on the good stuff)
cherry (or grape) tomatoes
1/2 cucumber (peeled and sliced)
a few strips of green and red pepper (optional)
celery cut in little slices

Really, whatever you like in a tossed salad is great.
Grill the chicken breasts using any sauce you like....or no sauce at all....remove to a cutting board that you have sprinkled liberally with your favorite flavors of spices and herbs. I use fresh ground pepper, seasoned salt, basil, Mrs. Dash, whatever makes me happy. Turn the chicken so both sides are coated with the herb mixture and slice the chicken in thin slices. Put your salad greens on a dinner plate or a large shallow bowl and cut the other
Page 4

Page 5
vegetables onto the greens....put a few cherry tomatoes on each....lay the sliced chicken over each salad and add dressing (your favorite....mine happens to be Marie's Poppy Seed) and voila! Supper!! I usually serve this with a few slices of french bread and a cold, stemmed glass of something (wine or water).

Close-up photo of The Devil’s Snowshoe prints.

Most people from Milo have heard or read about the Devil’s Footprints located on the road to Dover, but maybe you don’t know how long this legend has been around.

From a Newspaper Article Dated 1889
Submitted by Gwen Bradeen
“Snow-Shoe” Tracks in the Solid Ledge

Our correspondent at Sebec Station writes as follows:
“I will undertake to describe what, if located in some parts of the country, would no doubt be visited by thousands of people and be considered as among the very curious things of the age. I believe some years ago mention was made of the same in the Observer by one who visited the spot, but as several years have elapsed, perhaps some may, by reading this, be induced to visit the place and see for themselves, who have never before heard of it.

On the north side of the road leading from Milo village to South Sebec, about 1_ miles from Milo, is what is known as Ledge Hill, owned at present by Joseph Hamlin, Esq. It is composed mostly of solid ledge, with occasional hollows filled with earth. Near the road, and running nearly east and west, imprinted in the solid rock, is what appears to be some eighteen or twenty snow-shoe tracks, or tracks similar in shape to those now made by snow-shoes. They first appear on top of the hill and whatever the “snow-shoes” were worn by, was going from the east to the west. As the ledge inclines to the west, they were mostly going down hill, except when rising from the low places to go over the high points in the ledge. When they were rising, in stepping it of course brought the weight on the toe of the “snow-shoe”, and in every such instance, it is indented in the solid rock, in some instances to the depth of nearly one foot, while the heel of the shoe is hardly visible; on the smooth ledge, however, the whole shoe is visible, as it would be in snow with a light crust.

As the track descends from the ledge to the low ground, the weight is thrown on the heel of the shoe as it would be in snow, and the heel is imprinted while the toe scarcely shows. There are four different sections of this track, separated by those low places of earth, which no doubt, if removed, would connect them, as they are on nearly a straight line and all going in the same direction. How, when and by whom they were made, I will not undertake to explain’ but they are there and it is well worth one’s trouble to visit them and see for himself. I have described them as correctly as possible and we have visited them several times.

I received this e-mail from my friend and classmate Gerry Demers. Sort of make the black flies and mosquitoes easier to take.

To all my friends up north,

Here I sit in the middle of the path of Hurricane Dennis. It should start hitting us within the new few hours and the eye late this afternoon. This is the third storm to affect our area this year already. Looks like this will be a bad year for our area. If you watch the Weather Channel you will notice that they talk about the storm making land fall somewhere between Mobile, Alabama and Destin, Florida. We live within that area, but are about 45 miles inland, so we don't have to worry about the storm surge. Dennis is a very powerful storm and we are sure to get damage. We chose to ride out the storm in our house with two of our sons and their family. Since we are sure to be without power for about a week, I'll email everyone later to let you know how things came out.

Have a nice day :)

Searching For Income in Your Investments
Submitted By Shelley Phillips-Mills
In today’s market environment, positioning your portfolio to generate income can be one of the most challenging tasks you’ll find in managing your assets. With interest rates and inflation remaining relatively low, by historical standards, the real return – actual return minus inflation – on fixed-income investments such as bonds has been significantly less than what investors have enjoyed during the last 20 years.

To help your income keep pace with inflation, and at the same time take advantage of rising interest rates, there are several strategies you can make use of as you work toward your investment income objectives – both now and over time. Following are some examples to consider.

Keeping up with inflation. In very basic terms, inflation erodes the purchasing power of your dollar so that it buys less and less over time. Just think of the price of gas today, for example, and think about how much gas you could have bought 20 years ago for what it takes to buy just one gallon now. But for a more eye-opening example, let’s look at the impact inflation can have on your portfolio.

Even a relatively modest inflation rate of just three percent could have a drastic effect over time. If you have a portfolio that generates $50,000 in annual income, that unassuming 3 percent inflation rate would shrink your
Page 5

Page 6
income to less than $30,000 in 20 years, if you don’t do anything to counteract its effects.

To help combat the effects of inflation on your portfolio, one investment idea to consider would be adding dividend-paying stocks to your portfolio. While stocks move up and down in value, and may be worth more or less than what you paid for them originally, long-term investors benefit from dividend payments received from these stocks. There is no guarantee that a company will continue to pay dividends, but there are many well-known companies out there that have paid dividends consistently for years.

Treasury Inflation Protection Securities (TIPS) are another type of investment that could help your portfolio. Like other treasuries, TIPS are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. And you can see from their name that they were designed specifically with inflation in mind. Unlike traditional bonds, the value of the principal and interest income paid changes over time to reflect changes in the rate of inflation.

Preparing for higher interest rates. Current interest rates and bond yields are relatively low by historical standards. But now that the economy is improving, the Fed is raising rates to help control inflation. This presents opportunities and problems for fixed-income investors.

To help position your own portfolio appropriately, you may want to consider a laddered-maturities strategy. This involves purchasing equal quantities of a group of bonds with maturities positioned like the rungs of a ladder. By spreading your investments over several maturities, you can better capture the benefit of rising interest rates while minimizing the valuation changes in the bonds you own.

Short-term bonds may also provide a healthy addition to your portfolio. Short-term interest rates have begun to rise, which often leads to a rise in long-term bond yields. Since short-term bond prices can react less to changes in rates, they may provide stability to the income in your portfolio.

These are just some of the strategies you can use to find income in your portfolio. Now is the time to take steps to address your investment income needs. If you would like to receive the publication, The Search For Income: Here Are Some Things to Consider if You’re Looking for Ways to Generate Steady Income From Your Portfolio, by A.G.
