While many people who do not understand Downeast Maine may think it to be a bit "behind the times," I am a person who grew up in the small town of Jonesport and then moved away at age 19 out of necessity, not just choice. I could only wish that kids would have the same schooling experience I had as a child in the small, but very efficient schools in Jonesport, Maine.

Jonesport is a place where time slows down, and maybe there are not 24-hour stores or conveniences, but being able to see the stars and hear the crickets at night while smelling the salt of the ocean is reward enough for some. Some people may call it a "poor" town, with littered lawns, but I see a "simple" town where fisherman sometimes need to store their traps and tools on what land they have available. Some might even think the locals to be "suspicious" of "outsiders." This primarily stems from the negative comments made from some outsiders concerning the education, local accent and economic status of the area.

What you will get when you meet someone from Jonesport is an authentic welcome that may not necessarily be as warm as one you would expect from family, but also not syrupy fake and misleading. You know where you stand. I love my home town and being someone who has seen so many other places, my heart still comes back to the quaint, simple, slower-paced genuine town of Jonesport.

Fort Myers Beach on the south west Florida Gulf Coast is truly a piece of paradise. There are fabulous accommodations here from family vacation rental homes to upscale resorts and smaller inns. This is truly one of the best beaches in the area featuring 7 miles of white sugar sand public beach that is pet friendly with fido on a leash. In fact all of our fabulous family vacaiton homes are pet friendly and very well maintined. Forget VRBO - rent a home from someone who is there to take care of you with personal service. Great discounts to local attractions and restaurants. Sun Palace Vacations recommends the Ford and Edison Estates, Miromoar Outlet, Fleamasters Flea Market and great local dining on our web site at www.mybeachrental.us

I love our community. It is family oriented and culturally diverse. It's far enough away from the city to enjoy the rural feel, but close enough to access entertainment, quality health services, and ample employment opportunities.

I lived in New London for 6 years, 1961-67. Worked in the Crown Restaurant on State St. Still miss it but never was able to make it back, even for a visit. Hoping to find old friends from back then. Also, a few yrs ago I found about 40-50 photos of New London on webshots.com. Pictures of Bank St, State St, Courthouse, Library, St Mary of the Sea Church, & many more. I downloaded them to my computer but it crashed & I lost them all. These were not old-timey photos but fairly recent, like maybe during the past 10-20 yrs. I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone who can help me find old friends--both people & places.

I went to Tapawingo Farm Camp on Big Bear Lake, Gouldsboro, PA from 1950 through 1956. My father (Charles Kane) met my Stepmother (Hazel Tubb) in the Summer of 1950 at this camp, and they married in the winter of 1950. I am looking for contacts, pictures, and other information about this camp that was owned by Mary and Pete Norton. Thanks!

Essex County is a wonderfully beautiful county; loveliest in the state with Lake Champlain on the east and the Adirondacks to the west. It is also th coldest, perhaps the snowiest and worth visiting any time of the year except "mud season" which can be a six week period between mid-March and mid-May (it varies from year to year)

My husband and I are visiting Mayfield this coming weekend ( Aug 22-24) to consider moving there when we retire. I was hoping by joining this site we could read what other people thought about the place. I don't see anywhere to read other blogs so if anyone out there can give us some insight it would be great. We'll be looking to purchase a home and would like to know about the neighborhoods in Mayfield. Thanks, Edna

In this small town, Well where can I start? Everyone knows your business except for you. This town is for only people who wish to live off welfare and do nothing with their lives. Your children will grow up to be alcoholics and junkies who skip school and party till they die.... Litterally. The only reason the population has grown since 2003 is because everyone and their kids are havin babies. Now they want to raise everones taxes so they can build a $2 million dollar high school, for what??? Half of them never go to school anyhow. Yeah Lewistown has some perks, like whooo hooo we have the only walmart for miles... We also have 2 McDonalds, 2 Burger Kings, Dairy Queen, Dunkin Donuts, and every fatening restraunt inbetween. That is all anyone can afford because they live on welfare. There are some nice neighborhoods around here but the owners of those houses usually live, or work in a different city and can afford some of the finer things in life.

Do not choose Lewistown to be your permanent home of choice. There are much better places to settle down and to make sure your children get the BEST education. Unlike here where they punish your kids for having learning disabilities. Right away they are problem children that you as the parent need to deal with! So Good luck!

I worked in Westmoreland, TN for about four years, seasonally, preparing income tax, and the people there are some of the finest, friendliest people I have ever met in my life.

You can get the best homemade pies of anywhere in the world at Kathy's Restaurant there.

After a nice boat ride to the island, we were greeted by an employee of Annie's Island Moped Rentals who refused to rent 2 mopeds and 6 bicycles to our family because he was certain that we would exchange riders the second we were out of his view. We had no such intention and found his remarks to be offensive and insulting. This was not a warm greeting upon arriving on the island. We went down the road and gave our business to another owner who was happy to help us. We also enjoyed pizza at the Island Pizza. School House Beach was great! In spite of the sour-pussed fellow at Annie's, we still had a great time.

I am not sure how people are on here but I need some info. Over 13 years have passed, not a day goes by that I don't see her face, hear her laughter, see her smile, and feel her love.

My little sister, Kathy Jo Morgan was killed in a car accident on the pkwy 4/28/95 along with 4 other people. One of her nephews will be getting his drivers license soon and he has asked me several questions about the wreck that I can't answer.

I am hoping someone will read this that can help me.
Maybe, you saw them before the accident.
Maybe, you were behind one of the cars or rushed to the scene when you heard on the scanner.
Maybe,you were a firefighter or EMT that worked that grim and unforgetable night.

I know nothing can or will ever fill the emptiness we feel, but just to have some simple questions answered.
PLEASE JUST TRY TO REMEMBER.
Kathy Jo's sister

Ironia is a GREAT town. It is approximately 6 feet long, and a subdivision of Randolph. Bills is the best place to go for food, and Pizza Pub, directly across the street, has a nice Italian cuisine. I would suggest that you stay away from Honeyland Farms. Muhammad Sajiid sells old products at extremely high prices. If you must visit this establishment, please check the dates. Sadly, Sack's Ironia Service Center (Gulf) is no longer located in Ironia. It has moved to Quaker Church Road and it's former location at 386 Dover Chester Road sits empty.

PROS: (?)Very seldom will ever get stopped for speeding in the downtown area.
Most store cashiers are nice.Saratoga Diner,Don't bother,Go to Malta or Clifton Park.
Saratoga Springs Libaray has a lot of free interesting things for entertainment.Library staff is helpful.
Congress Park is nice to picnic and stroll;quite safe.

CONS: Roads are the WORST I've ever been on,And I came from Charleston,SC, obviously no tax money is spent here!
Can't cross the street,in a crosswalk,WITHOUT a car attempting to run you over.
Hardly ever SNOW BLOW! Have to walk in the street in winter!!! Town;museums & DT stores Not handicapped accessible.
Extremely SNOBville!!!Low middle class& Poor get mistreated.Hardly any family physicans.
National Grid Electricty=Crooks.Bills are extremely too high!
Police hardly ever stops speeders.
Cars allowed to park at stop signs.
Theatre productions stink.Movies too over priced.

I helped build the school (between the river and highway)
in 1959 or there therabout, I was a laborer working with the plumbers, it was hard work because of the mud. the river always scared me, we were working below the river hight. i liked the area as it was a long away from new orleans, wich i did live there also. iwas wondering how much the area grew since then.

Please be advised. I after viewing online website for Sea Breeze Inn ,Seaside Heights made reservations with much excitement and anticipation for a fun filled weekend at the shore. The room and service was horrible. They took me for $182.00 required upfront when my reservations were made and I did not stay in the dirty, tobacco stinched room and they did not refund my money. There are not any of the amenities and services available that they list on their website and over the phone when they take your reservations and take your hard earned money. I hope nobody else deserving and wanting a nice vacation make reservations with this hotel. Beware. I advise you to go to the shore and make your reservations onsite after viewing your room. There are many nearby hotels.

Alledgedly Nancy Ziter and Alan Ziter liars, cheats, and thiefs.
Alan Ziter known for his drug use and frequent weekends at gay bathhouses and his work with the arts.

His Sister left San Diego before criminal charges could be brought against her for lies made to the police.

Both were involved in Marijuna trafficing related issues.

Mr. Ziters long going abuse is legendary.

They need to be watched.

I stayed at the cooperstown connection, 140 e main street this past week, while my son played baseball in Dreamspark. We arrived at 4pm, while all the other families were able to get into their houses, I was told to come back at 530 because the people who stayed the week before had checked out late. When we came back at 530 I had to wait again, even though he knew my husband and son had to be in Dreams Park by 615. I sent them on and waited. When I finally got into the house, I was told I could not use the washer and dryer because of septic issues he had known about for several weeks. When I said one of the reasons we picked this place was for the facilities, he told me which would I rather, flush the toilet or do my laundry! I was given no apology, no discount, only the promise he would do my laundry on Tuesday if I wanted. The pool we had was locked and could only be opened if we called him. We went to use it and when I called he said it was too late! I was treated disgracefully

Saint Jo is a great little town with a lot of good and honest people.But what is happening to the young people there....are they growing up without any respect ?

Why then would a young man borrow a mans riggin bag and then pretend to return it only to steal it and then burn it to try and cover it up.
That says a lot about the trust the man put in this boy loaning him something that meant a lot to him, with things in it that could not be replaced that had been given to him over the years.We need to say a prayer for both the Man and the Boy....the Man for his hurt to be healed and for him not to lose faith in people around him.For the Boy that he will learn to DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DUE UNTO YOU.
This Boy will never make a bull rider now...he is not enough of a man....how can he face a 2000 pound bull if he can't face a 150 pound Man ???

Dilley to me is home. Afterall it is my hometown.
I remember growing up and feeling safe and sheltered.
Most of all I recall all the time spent with my family. My Mother's family to be exact. Her sisters were always cooking and we were always there. We had alot of family gatherings, on the weekends, holidays. But the everyday get togethers were the best. We shared, we bonded, we looked after each other.
I don't sense that there anymore. Dilley has gotten smaller, it almost looks deserted when you drive thru it.
I wonder why Dilley never developed economically, I mean EVEN Cotulla has prospered! Is it too late for Dilley?

Hendrysburg was the retirement home for my maternal grandparents, Harry T. and Mary (Nabb) Hamilton, back in the 1940's.
Their home was about .5 miles up the road that ran perpendicular to Main Street. Name of road ???
Their property was unique in that there was an old wooden garage on the near left corner of the property, that was used by the Belmont County Maintenance Department to park their dump truck.
I'm looking to lacate ANYONE who might help me locate and pictures of the home and property so I can have an artist friend of mine re-create what I remember into a painting for my grandchildern.
Any help is greately appreciated.
Thanks.

I recently moved to Huffman. I really like it here. I would love to meet other local residents. Have a regular blog about things going on in the community.
I lived here about 20 years ago, then moved away, made some changes in my life. I really do like it here. Sort of out of town, but close to everything.

If someone is interested in getting a blog, or something started, please leave me a message, maybe we could meet for coffee or something, and discuss bringing our community together.

I lives most of my child hood in Woodlake with four sisters and one brother. We have many childhood memories there. Our mother was quite the gypsy and we moved from one old farm house to another. Recently, we (siblings) decided to research every house we lived in which is around 25. If anyone has historical data, say from the utility company that would assist in our search we would be eternally greatful. Thank you and God be with you. Sincerely, Pamela Gaines-Laird.

Place to avoid

We stayed at a place called Stiefvaters Lakeside Cottages, the place was horrible. The shower stall was located inside the bedroom instead of in the bathroom. Room had mold / mildew growing on floors and walls. We were forced to leave early in the morning due to my wifes allergic reaction to the mold, owner would not refund unused nights fee.

If you live South of the Blue Ridge parkway on one of the dirt roads for example like Benge-Ashe or Lump Road or Blue Ridge Church, you are in Wilkes county even if Ashe is right across the street. Recent timed events based on real emergencies revealed 80 minutes for an ambulance, 72 minutes for police, 95 minutes for fire department. Patients are transported to Wilkes even though Ashe Memorial is only 12 miles or so away.

Students must travel an average 2.5 hours each way to be transported to school. I just moved here and can't believe all the trouble living across the street could mean. Who made this law and how can we get these couple streets here annexed to Ashe?

We visited Olcott May 23rd and thought the Amusement Park was perfect for our three year old Granddaughter/Great Granddaugter. We overheard people say they didn't know about the place and found it a perfect spot for the kids.

pulling into a parking slot in the Kroger parking lot, the black Expedition next to me was backing out. The driver hit my car, pulled up, straightened out and backed out again and drove off!

If you see a Black Expedition license N88 BPP, please be careful, this woman obviously does not believe she is repsonsible for the consequences of her actions.

Ewa by Gentry Community Association serves the local Ewa community with fun keiki classes like hula, painting, and swim lessons. Unfortunately, since January of 2008, the management of the pool and swim classes has become increasingly hostile and difficult to deal with. Your best bet is to go elsewhere to get swim lessons for your child. Hopes this helps!

My husband and I are from Frankfort and have lived in New Mexico for the past 30 years. We are planning on getting us a motor home and coming back for a visit with family and friends still there. We have been coming back on visits for many years, and have all ways stayed with family. My question is doesn't Frankfort have any RV parks?
I have looked on every thing I can think of for a park to park our motor home while we are there.

I have had a very bad experience with Michelle Cole of Aroma's Coffee in Van Buren, AR. She needed her espresso machines repaired - I loaned her a unit so she could continue to do business - I repaired her 2 units at considerable cost to me - and returned them to her business location and got her up & running. That was months ago and she has not paid me one dime. Try to do someone a favor and it will come back to bite you in the butt. She claims to have a "Christian" business - I had to get a judgement against her business and will probably never collect. Due to her irresponsibility I now will no longer extend credit to individual accounts and will no longer "loan" my machines. Talk about a "low life".

For those who live in this town you are getting ripped off by your D.P.W. If you are throwing items out at "large item drop off", the employees are stealing from you! If you are throwing any metal of value ie; copper tubing,wire aluminum, The enployees are putting it to the side and cashing it in for themselves. This practice is illegal and is kept very secret by the supervisors and workers. Township vehicles were used to bring the scrap to cash in on township time, but they are more cautious and use personal vehicles, also on town time. The town raises taxes only to have a free lunch on the workers. The carting company also loses money due to lower scale weight. The Mayor, council people, Police chief, nobody knows about this problem. I hope someone reads this and is able to help put an and to this problem!

I am Truly amazed at the drug problems in this town. With a 20 year sheriff you would think that at one point in his career he would have made a dent in the numbers. But I realize now that the druggies out populate the citzens. They all showed up to vote!
The citizens don't give a flip about their town but when kids become meth users they can't figure out why and cry the loudest. WAKE UP ATOKA YOU GOT 4 MORE YEARS WITH THIS BARNEY
