 ⇒Meet a Maine Author-Douglas Rooks

 Maine author and journalist Douglas Rooks will read from his new book, Rise, Decline and Renewal: The Democratic Party in Maine, just published by Hamilton Books.

The final chapters describe how Maine’s largest political party can again seize the initiative, energize a new generation of young people, and govern in the public interest once more.
While Rise, Decline and Renewal focuses primarily on the evolution of the Democratic Party, it makes a strong case that only a vigorous two-party system, based on competition rather than endless conflict, can restore Maine’s state government to health.

Aging at Home-Wayne Survey   UPDATE: New Survey

The “Aging At Home” committee of Wayne surveyed more than 100 of Wayne’s elders. We learned more about what people in town need. Now we are beginning projects designed to help elderly Wayners and people who have disabilities meet those needs so they can stay in Wayne as they age. We would like your input and/or your help. This survey is for ALL members of the Wayne community. We want to match what people in Wayne want to do for others with what is needed.

Here is the NEW link if you would like to take the survey on line:
