SOLON & BEYOND, Week of August 25, 2016

Solon and Beyondby Marilyn Rogers-Bull & Percy
Solon, Maine 04979

Good morning, dear friends. Don’t worry, be happy!

Another one of those Mondays when I don’t have very much news to share with you. Some times lately I have received news too late to get it in the column it should be in, my deadline now to receive news for the Thursday paper is Sunday night. My apologies if your news wasn’t printed, just don’t give up on me!     Keystone Chapter #78 O. E. S. in Solon will be meeting on Thursday, September 1, for their monthly meeting. The program is entitled “This is your life!”

The Embden Historical Society will meet on Monday, September 12, at 7 p.m. for their annual meeting, election of officers and committee reports. The program is Show & Tell (members to bring a favorite item.)

Would like to invite those of you who have been painting for awhile, in any medium, to join the fun at Adult Education in Skowhegan starting on Monday, September 12, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The only cost is a $5 registration fee. Hope all of you who have been coming before are planning another session of fun and learning together, I’ve missed you this summer.

Lief and I traveled up to the “County” last weekend for the annual Washburn Days weekend. We attended the school banquet Friday night that was attended by many who had graduated from the Washburn High School in years past. It is fun to meet his friends and neighbors, and to visit with his family. People are so very friendly up there. The huge parade always follows on Saturday, which is great to watch, then more talking with friends.

Since I didn’t have much local news, I’ve been going through some of my stash to try to find something to give you a good laugh or two. Came across this old (so old that I can’t remember who might have given it to me) piece of paper with these words hand written across the top, “The Future As Seen in 1950. ” And this is their words: “I’ll tell you one thing….if things keep going the way they are, it’s going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $20.’ …”If cigarettes keep going up in price , I’m going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous.” (wonder if they quit!)… Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?” …  “The Government is wanting to get its hands on everything. Pretty soon it’s going to be impossible to run a family business or farm.”…”If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.” …  “When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 30 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.”… “Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls.”   “Also, their music drives me wild. This ‘Rock Around The Clock’ thing is nothing but racket.”   “I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies anymore. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying ‘damn’ in Gone With The Wind,’ it seems every movie has a ‘hell’ or ‘damn’ in it.’…”Also, it won’t be long until couples are sleeping in the same bed in the movies. What is this world coming to?”

Hope you enjoyed the above thoughts by someone 66 years ago! How our world has changed!

Must leave room for Percy’s memoir entitled, Keeping Young. A dear old Quaker lady, distinguished for her youthful appearance, was asked what she used to preserve her charms. She replied sweetly: “I use for the lips, truth; for the voice, prayer; for the eyes, pity; for the hands, charity; for the figure, uprightness; and for the heart, love. (This was taken from one of my old Trotty Veck Message booklet Happy Hours. Does anyone out there know if these little books are still published? If so, would you please let me know. Thanks!).

China selectmen to call special meeting to set 2016-17 tax rate

by Mary Grow

China selectmen have scheduled a special meeting for 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 29, to set the 2016-17 tax rate – they hope.

At the board’s Aug. 22 regular meeting, Town Manager Daniel L’Heureux said he and assessor William Van Tuinen were “very, very, very close” to having the necessary calculations done to recommend a tax rate.  He expects it to be lower than the 2015-16 rate.

By town meeting vote, the first half payment of local taxes is due Sept. 30.

The TIF (Tax Increment Financing) Committee meets at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 29 to continue discussion of possible projects at both ends of China Lake.  The selectmen’s and TIF meetings will be in the town office meeting room.

Selectmen also rescheduled their next regular meeting, which would have fallen on Labor Day Monday, to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6.  The meeting will be preceded by a 5:55 p.m. public hearing on the annual amendments to the General Assistance Ordinance (state changes in allowable amounts of aid the town can give).  The agenda is likely to include a report on the survey of China’s population, with a focus on senior citizens, L’Heureux said.

Also likely to be on the Sept. 6 agenda is discussion of whether commercial haulers who bring China household waste to the transfer station should be charged a fee.  Selectman Irene Belanger has argued for months that they should not, because householders are already paying taxes that help support the transfer station.

To Belanger’s surprise, board Chairman Robert MacFarland made a motion to eliminate the fee.  Action was postponed because the item was not on the Aug. 22 agenda.

Selectmen made two unanimous decisions Aug. 22.

They voted to appropriate either $9,450 or $9,475 – no one could remember the exact figure – for Violette Construction to build a new handicapped access ramp at the portable classroom behind the town office.  After a long discussion of whether the money should come from the selectmen’s contingency fund or from the capital improvements reserve fund, they agreed on the latter source, and asked L’Heureux to seek clarification from the Maine Municipal Association on appropriate uses of the contingency fund.

They voted to use left-over funds from the grant for the new police vehicle plus the trade-in for the current vehicle to add a radar kit and a defibrillator to the new car’s equipment.

At a future meeting board members will need to decide on local warrant articles for Nov. 8 voting.  L’Heureux sent them a nine-item list, which was not discussed Aug. 22.  It includes:

• Possible amendments to the Transfer Station Ordinance.
• Possible amendments to the Transfer Station Flow Control Ordinance.
• Land Use Ordinance amendments discussed by the Planning Board Land, including changes dealing with seasonal residences, shoreland zoning and signs and changes needed to accommodate TIF Committee proposals for expanding lake access at the causeway at the head of China Lake.
• Possible uses of TIF money, including establishing a revolving/forgivable loan fund for local businesses, purchasing the Bailey property at the head of the lake as part of the TIF plan and providing a trails grant for the China Four Seasons Club.  (ep)
— Purchase of the Ortega property behind the town office.
• Acceptance of the 13-lot subdivision on the east side of Lakeview Drive offered to the town by Wachusetts Property.
•  Setting up a capital fund for the transfer station, to be funded by Palermo’s annual contribution once Palermo residents begin using China’s facility in January 2017.
• Setting up a fund for Thurston Park.
• Adding the Central Maine Power Company substation expansion off Route 3 to China’s TIF.
