Looking For Leeds The 1874 clipping reports that “A hen belonging to G. G. Hussey from Leeds laid recently an egg, measuring 6 by 7 3/4 and nearly a quarter of a pound in weight “. One from the same era provides an update on James Roach’s’s small boy who had choked on a kernel of corn 13 weeks and five days before. Once thought to be at death’s door, the lad was now on the mend. These and many others were glued into a used store ledger by Henry Morgan Brewster, a storekeeper, station master, postmaster, trial justice, and farmer from Curtis Corner who also wrote for the Lewiston Journal under the name of “Morgan”. The clippings range in reports of the annual Leeds Town Meeting to the status of the steam mills around Leeds and a list of the first day of sleighing for each year between 1853 and 1896. Many are too good not to share with a wider audience than the members of

the Leeds Historical Society, and it’s the group’s plan to gather together these and other stories and poems about Leeds in a book. If you have copies of stories or poems about Leeds, either handed down through your family or written by yourself, please submit them to the Historical Society to be considered for inclusion in this fun collection. Maybe you have the history of your farm, or a ghost story. Perhaps you have a love letter sent from a Leeds girl to her sweetheart in the war, or a story about taking a field trip to Bear Pond or riding the train from Leeds to Livermore with Eula Carville. It can be about old times or more recent ones, but we’d like to see them. We’ll leave you today with “Recollections”, by Carroll “Cad “Morris As I look out of my window and look up across the road,I recall a lot of memories, and I’ve looked at

many a load. Gone is the old stone wall where many a squirrel did perch. Gone are the maples, old apple trees, and yellow and white birch. Gone, too, are many people in my time and before my day. Each on their special business; each in their special way.I like to recall memories of the travelers, the doctors, farmers, horse traders and peddlers, include the old man selling seeds. I’m sure not too many of them had too many hatreds and greeds. I’m sure they were just like us for they had their special needs. I’m glad to have told some of their stories. I’m glad I’ve always lived in Leeds. If you, too, have something to add to Leeds’ collection, please call Pam Bell at 933-4121 or send them along to: Pam Bell, 40 Libby Rd., Leeds, ME 04263. We’ll be sure to return the original copies.n

Snack Foods that Promote Better Sleep According to the National Sleep Foundation, changes in sleep patterns are a part of the aging process. Many people experience difficulty falling asleep and then staying asleep as they age, and that difficulty can make men and women over 50 feel more tired during the day. But even though difficulty sleeping may be a part of aging, that does not mean men and women over 50 cannot take steps to improve their sleeping patterns. For example, certain snack foods may help to improve quality of sleep, especially when these foods replace less healthy snacking options. While men and women over 50 should always consult with their physicians before making any changes to their diets, the AARP notes that the following are a handful of snack foods that promote better sleep. · Almonds: Magnesium is a mineral with musclerelaxing properties, and almonds contain enough magnesium to help men and women get a better night’s sleep. A small amount of almonds before bed might be enough to make falling and staying asleep easier. · Bananas: Much like almonds, bananas provide a substantial amount of magnesium. Bananas also contain the amino acid tryptophan, which many people associate with Thanksgiving turkey. While trypto-

phan might be most often associated with the sleepiness people feel after eating a holiday meal, it also has been linked to better sleep quality, so a banana shortly before bed might be just what you need to fall and stay asleep. · Cheese and crackers: One more traditional snack may just help you get a better night’s sleep. Cheese and crackers contain tryptophan and carbohydrates, which can induce a better night’s sleep and help you fall asleep sooner. · Cherries: Cherries contain the sleep hormone melatonin, and the AARP notes that recent studies indicated that participants who drank tart cherry juice on a daily basis fell asleep more quickly and slept longer and better than participants who did not. · Hummus: The primary ingredient in hummus is chickpeas, which are loaded with tryptophan, folate

and vitamin B6. Folate has proven especially beneficial to older men and women who need help regulating their sleep patterns, while vitamin B6 helps the body regulate its clock. · Peanut butter: Peanut butter is another snacking item loaded with tryptophan. Spread some peanut butter on a carbohydrate, whether it’s a slice of toast or some crackers, before going to bed, and you may enjoy a better, longer sleep. · Walnuts: Like cherries, walnuts contain melatonin, which can contribute to a longer, more restful night’s sleep. Walnuts also can help regulate stress, which is a leading cause of sleeping difficulty. Many men and women experience difficulty sleeping as they age. But the right foods may just help combat such problems and help men and women get a more adequate night’s sleep. Metro n

Coupon Tips For Deal-Seekers Coupons can help people, and parents in particular, save substantial amounts of money. While television shows have documented the efforts of people who take coupon usage to the extreme, many shoppers simply want to earn modest savings on their grocery bills, recognizing that saving a few dollars here or there can add up to significant savings over time. But even if you have no desire to spend hours on end hunting down the best deals, there are some ways to make the best use of coupons without taking up much of your time. • Understand stores’ coupon policies. Begin by researching if stores you frequent have restrictions on coupon usage. Some stores will double the value of coupons and others will not. Stores may set limits on the number of coupons one register can process or how many coupons a particular shopper can use at

one time. It may be possible to use two different coupons for the same item, provided one is a manufacturer’s coupon and the other is store-based. The more you know about the coupon policies at your favorite stores, the more likely you are to use those policies to your advantage. • Get organized. Using coupons effectively requires some organization. Develop a system for categorizing coupons by type or expiration date, which should ensure you don’t miss out on discounts because you lost coupons of they have expired. • Subscribe to several newspapers and coupon websites. Newspapers and store circulars are still great resources for coupons, so subscribe to your local newspaper, which likely still includes inserts advertising the latest sales and coupons. You also can subscribe to coupon websites, many of which are

free and deliver coupons to subscribers’ email inboxes on a daily or weekly basis. • Consider a couponclipping service. A coupon service will clip coupons for you and send them to you for a fee. This enables you to collect coupons from various regions where coupon values may be higher than where you live. • Join a store loyalty program. Those cards supermarkets and other stores scan at checkout do more than just track your purchases. They typically entitle members to discounts that other shoppers are not privy to. These discounts come off the bill automatically, saving you time and money. Furthermore, being part of a store loyalty program may entitle you to emails or other advertisements on special sales not open to the general public. • Learn how to stack coupons with store sales. Many blogs tell you which stores are running sales and how

they compare to coupons in recent newspapers and circulars. This enables you to not only get the sale price on a particular item but also earn the coupon discount. This is a good way to save even more money. • Get to know the standard prices of products. The only way to know if a coupon is a good deal is to be familiar with the going rate of the products you buy on a regular basis. When visiting the grocery store, make a note of how much your favorite items cost at full price. This way you will know when a sale is truly a sale. • Be prepared to stock up. Some of the best deals to be had involve buy one get one free, deals which are often referred to as “BOGO” or “B1G1.” When such deals can be combined with a coupon, the savings are substantial. Set aside a rack or area of the home for stockpiling your BOGO purchases.

• Don’t forget about paperless coupons. Paperless coupons, or ecoupons, are often linked to store loyalty programs. Many ecoupon services require shoppers to sign up online and provide some basic information about themselves. When you go to check out at the store, you will swipe your customer card and any available ecoupons will automatically be deducted from your purchase. Ecoupons are usually redeemed at face value and cannot be doubled or shared. • Try competitors’ coupons, too. Some stores will honor coupons from their competition. If one supermarket is offering a particular BOGO deal, clip the coupon and bring it to your local store to see if they will match the discount. Although many people will not go to extremes when using coupons, when used wisely, such discounts can help save a good deal of money. Metro

Greetings from the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce What a difference a year can make. As things continue to improve in our local economy in Franklin County, the Chamber continues to get stronger. With over 20 new members joining the Chamber since last year at this time, our local businesses continue to get stronger. Both downtown Wilton and downtown Farmington saw several ribbon-cutting ceremonies for new businesses this past year. This continues to make our small town, ‘downtown, Maine’ a vibrant attraction to visitors. The Chester Greenwood Parade and festivities on December 5th was a huge success. With one of the largest num-

ber of parade floats, we had the highest turnout in decades. I’m sure the 50 degree temperature might have had something to do with it, but I’ll take it as a sign of increased community spirit. The spirit of Chester Greenwood was carried on in the day-long activities. Many of Greenwood family (as well as impersonators) attended the event that celebrated Chester’s innovations and entrepreneurship that helped shape early Farmington. For those that don’t know, he invented many items such as a wide bottom kettle, spring steel rake and a design for both a shock absorber and spark plug.

His most memorable invention was when he designed the first pair of ear muffs at age 15. This would lead to a Farmington factory that would produce and sell as many as 400,000 pair in one-year worldwide. This day of celebration continues to bring Farmington notoriety as it was broadcast on major news outlets. CBS radio from New Year called in for a phone interview and the parade was covered from CBS News and the Associated Press (who interviewed both Ron Greenwood as well as Nancy Porter). We even had a Washington DC freelance magazine reporter who reported on the financial

impact of the whole day on the local economy. Comments on the Daily Bulldog indicated news agencies were covering the parade both across the country as well as internationally. I had the pleasure of walking around before the parade as the floats were prepared. It was very festive as everyone worked on last minute details on their float and children made last minute costume adjustments. The celebrity parade judges included the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Thomas Ward (Dr. Tom), local business owner, John Moore and Franklin County Sheriff, Scott Nichols. WKTJ broadcasted live with

State Senator Tom Saviello having a lot to say about every float (not hard for a politician). The day’s events of a Chili competition, Gingerbread House display, Polar dip and a road race among other events added to joy of the day. The Pierce House was open for tours in the afternoon. The Pierce House was incorporated as the Farmington Home for Aged people in 1905. Area citizens raised funds, and the Home began providing care to residents in 1926. Chester Greenwood and Isabele W. Greenwood were on the list of original founders. It’s a beautiful facility and Darlene Mooar does an outstanding job

as the administrator. The evening wound down with the Farmington Rotary Clubs Festival of Trees. This event allows visitors to bid on donated Christmas trees that have been decorated by area businesses and youth groups. This year’s event raised over $10,000 towards Rotary charities. It was only fitting that the event was held in the Greenwood Restaurant, which is located in the original Chester Greenwood earmuff factory. It was a great job by Chrissy St. Laurent and her parade committee. All and all it was a fantastic day of wholesome family entertainment.n
