Applause for helping in Sebec

Article from The Piscataquis Observer, Vol. 164, No. 34, August 21, 2002
To the editor:

There are those of us who have grown up or chosen to live in Piscataquis County, and have learned by unending snowstorms or picking (sometimes digging) unending field rocks, that the "faster I go, the behinder I get" is not just a Maine saying. It is a fact !

The creation of an "old" 19th Century store which is safer, more efficient, warmer, with a U.S. Post Office, from an old store has tried many people here in Maine and some have earned their "stripes" in doing so. I am sure that Lisa and Forbes Smiley know what "the faster I go, the behinder I get" means.

Thanks to Lisa, Ned and Forbes of Sebec, they have earned their Maine "stripes" with the silent majority of Sebec for their gift of being there, with this great country store, post office and restaurant in Sebec Village Shops. Many thanks, again !
