Second Grade Chess Champ: Second grader, Gavin Henderson, left, won first place in a chess tournament, in Bangor, over February vacation. It was Gavin’s first tournament and he placed first in the K-4th grade unrated division. He plans to enter two more tournaments this year. Look for his name in the future. Gavin loves chess and practices whenever he can. He is pictured with RSU #18 Superintendent Carl Gartley who plans to challenge Gavin to a match in the near future. RSU #18 comprises the towns of Oakland, Belgrade, Rome, Sidney and China. (contributed photo)
