75¢ COUNTER COST Rangeley Lakes Builders Supply Receives Award for Business Excellence Volume 5 • Issue 4 October 23, 2015

The Rangeley Lakes Builders Supply Team!

The Patnode and MacFawn families traveled to the Blaine House in Augusta to accept the award. Rangeley Lakes Builders Supply was

recently awarded the Governor's Award for

Business Excellence. On Oct. 14th, the Patnode and MacFawn families headed to the Blaine House in Augusta to accept the award. This Spring, Alison Hagerstrom from the Greater Franklin Development corporation suggested the nomination. The company had just a little over two weeks to put a supporting package together and were told it needed to "stand out." Apparently it did! The day was April 24 when Virginia Patnode and her kids headed to Augusta to drop off the freshly printed and bound packet. The kids were so excited to be at our state’s capital! Virginia said, “It was easy to write our story, there is so much to say of the

employees who have helped and taught us along the way, of this community in which we live and that we love and of the customers we serve who support us as we strive to be the best at what we do! It was hard to be brief!” The families are honored that Governor LePage and his administration chose to acknowledge their 32 years in business. They look forward to living up to that honor for many more! Rangeley Lakes Builders Supply is a full service lumber yard located in downtown Rangeley. Gary and Jackie Patnode found the small mountain town on a family vacation and knew it was the place for them. They opened their business in 1983 and since then have endeavored to provide customers with the best products at the best prices, all with honesty, integrity and top notch customer service. Gary and Jackie were the first two on the payroll and today the business has grown to 20 full time and part time employees. A strong sense of community and caring is what attracted The Patnodes to Rangeley and what drives them and their family members to give back. Giving over $20,000 in in-

Rangeley Lakes Builders Supply recently received the 2015 Governor’s Award for Business Excellence. kind and cash donations in 2014 to over 20 organizations is an example of the depth and breadth of their commitment to their community. Hiring and retaining the best workforce is something the Patnodes have been practicing from the beginning. Gary is extremely proud to say that in all their years of business they have never laid anyone off. In 2006, Gary and Jackie’s daughter

Virginia and her husband Adam moved home to join the family business bringing the couples dream full circle. It is their sincere hope that the business will also pass to the third generation someday. The Patnode and MacFawn families thank everyone for supporting local business! They look forward to serving you soon! n

Scam Alert Bulletin Board

Did you know? A new law can help protect your identity. A security freeze safeguards a person’s credit report and it is one of the most effective ways to protect consumers from identity theft. Without access to this sensitive information, an identity thief is unable to obtain credit in that person’s name, thereby greatly minimizing the potential damage from

the theft. Once the freeze is in place, the consumer has control over who can receive their credit report. As of October 15th, Maine consumers can freeze and unfreeze their credit reports as needed through a unique Personal Identification Number (PIN) at no cost. For any questions or concerns regarding the Security Freeze, you can contact the Maine Attorney Gen-

Pharmacists Highlight Vital Role in Improving Patient Safety Pharmacists at Franklin Memorial Hospital will use National Hospital & Health-System Pharmacy Week, October 18-24, to underscore the many new and vital roles they now play in patient care. The evolution has been especially dramatic in recent years as pharmacists have moved beyond compounding and dispensing medications to become vital members of multidisciplinary patient-care teams. “Many consumers are not aware that pharmacists play a critical role in preventing medication errors, advising prescribers on the best drug choices, and working directly with patients to ensure they understand how to use their medications safely and effectively,” said Garry Miller, R.Ph. Franklin Memorial Hospital pharmacy di-

rector, “Pharmacy Week is a great way to educate the public about how pharmacists can help them get the most benefit from their medicine.” Hospital and health-system pharmacists have been able to take on enhanced patient-care roles because of a number of factors, including the deployment of highly trained, certified technicians and new technologies like robotics that dispense medications. As technology evolves—such as the addition of machine-readable codes to medication labels—patients will have greater opportunities to have a pharmacist involved in their care. Pharmacists are experts on the thousands of medications available today, how each one works in the body, and the ways to use each

one safely and effectively. Pharmacists who graduate today receive six years of education focused on medication therapy, and many pharmacists practicing in hospitals and health systems also complete post-graduate residency programs. They advise doctors and nurses on the best medications and monitor every patient’s medication therapy and provide quality checks to detect and prevent harmful drug interactions, reactions, or mistakes. On October 20, FMH also celebrates National Pharmacy Technician Day to recognize how important pharmacy technicians are and the supportive role they have in providing for a safe medication system. Without their support and work, the ability of pharmacists to be clini-

The vaudeville-like variety show features local people doing largely original acts, everything from comedy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a lot of that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to song, dance, and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fashion show.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately we have a lot of people in Phillips who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind getting on stage and being a little silly,â&#x20AC;? director Matthews says. The show, being put on by the PACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seatof-the-Pants Productions, features 20 performers in 15 different acts, most of them skits and comedy routines cooked up in kitchen-table brainstorming ses-

sions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to do,â&#x20AC;? Matthews says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and apparently audiences think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to watch . . . at any rate, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten excellent turn-outs for the first two.â&#x20AC;? The company includes Pam Matthews as host and performers Winona Davenport, Bruce Godin, Larry & Jewel Pinkham, Sharon Dudley, Tom Skolfield, Chris Hardy, Dick Matthews, Diana McCall, Rhonda LaPierre, Beth Pelletier, Sandra Curtis, Starr Galusha, Brandon Haines, and the Hainley family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Freya, Duncan, Rowen and Marin. Admission to Phillips Follies III is $6 for adults and $3 for children. Both shows are being performed at the PACC on Depot Street in Phillips. n

Phillips November Craft Fair

Two â&#x20AC;&#x153;Foliage from the Lakeâ&#x20AC;? cruises were conducted onboard the Gray Ghost in late September. A photo submitted by Bob & Ginny Santerre (Arrowsic, ME) was selected the winner by receiving the most â&#x20AC;&#x153;likesâ&#x20AC;? on the Chamber of Commerce Facebook page. The Santerres received a gift certificate from Rangeley Region Lake Cruises & Kayaking for a complimentary 1-hr Scenic Lake Cruise for two aboard the Oquossoc Lady. In an effort to continue to support the Rangeley Community, Rangeley Region Lake Cruises & Kayaking took a portion of the cruise ticket cost and made a donation to the Rangeley Lakes Chamber of Commerce and the Rangeley Friends of the Arts.

OSHM Welcomes 5,000th Visitor The Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum in Oquossoc welcomed its 5000th visitor of the 2015 season on Columbus Day, Oct. 12th. Mrs. Charleen Miles Chase of Bethel, was quite surprised and pleased to be the lucky recipient of a gift package from OSHM Executive Director, Bill Pierce. Miles-Chase received a package of OSHM logo merchandise, a collection of regional history books, glassware, beer steins and a set of four Joan Frost art prints. “Are you kidding me?” joked MilesChase’s husband, Carlie Casey after he stepped aside to allow his wife to en-

ter the museum first. The couple had driven up from Bethel to enjoy the spectacular fall foliage and to visit the museum for the first time. “We had heard a lot of great things about the museum and have meant to come see it for ourselves for quite a while so I guess its paid off that we hadn’t gotten around to it yet!” shared a smiling Miles-Chase. The Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum is operated by the Rangeley Lakes Region Historical Society and has been open since 2010. Yankee magazine has twice named the museum “Best Sporting Museum in New England. The

collection features a large and varied assemblage of interesting artifacts sharing the human use of the region’s renowned natural resources. Exhibits range from the 13,000 year old Palaeo Native American caribou hunt to President Eisenhower’s 1955 fishing trip. OSHM closed for the season on Sunday, October 18th. “The museum has just enjoyed a fun filled record-setting season, our second in a row, and we are so appreciative of all the wonderful support and the great turnout,” shared Pierce. The museum can be reached at 8643091. n

Franklin County Celebrated For Building Healthy Habits Let’s Go! Announces that one school, three out-of-school programs, three health care practices, and seven child care programs in Franklin County are being honored for their commitment to creating healthy environments for the children in their care. A total of 30 sites in Franklin County have introduced or sustained healthy changes in collaboration with the Let’s Go! program. By adopting healthy eating and active living practices these sites are positively influencing the choices children make. “This is the fourth year we’ve officially recognized sites

for their hard work. I couldn’t be more proud of the progress these sites have made. Sites are providing healthy, high energy snack choices, finding fun, creative ways to increase activity levels, and many have completely removed televisions from their spaces,” said Dr. Victoria Rogers, Director of the Let’s Go! program. “Thanks to changes like these, we’re seeing Maine’s childhood obesity rates level off.” Established in 2012, the Let’s Go! Recognition Program identifies and celebrates schools, out-of-school programs, child care programs and health

care practices for their commitment to improving the health of all children. Let’s Go! strives for policy change but recognizes three levels of change: 1) Bronze reflects a site implementing the program’s five priority strategies. 2) Silver acknowledges a site that has communicated these changes to parents and family members. 3) Gold, the highest level of recognition, is reserved for sites that have written all five priority strategies into policy. A total of 460 sites are being recognized this year, a 25% increase from 2014. Recognized sites in Franklin County

include: Kingfield Elementary, Rangeley Fitness Center after school programs, Spruce Mountain Afterschool, Stratton Everybody Let’s Go! Afterschool, Franklin Health Pediatrics, Mt. Abram Regional Health Center, Western Maine Family Health Center, Sweatt-Winter Early Care, Tamarack Tree House Child Care, Charlee Briggs Childcare, Jeannie’s Jungle Childcare, Jay Early Learning Center, Farmington Early Head Start Home Base and Maine Mountain Children’s House. Let’s Go!’s five priority strategies are: 1) Limit unhealthy

choices for snacks and celebrations, provide healthy choices. 2) Limit or eliminate sugary beverages, provide water. 3) Prohibit the use of food as a reward. 4) Provide opportunities for children to get physical activity every day. 5) Limit recreational screen time. Health care sites are recognized for three practice specific, obesity prevention program components: 1 )Providing consistent 5-2-1-0 messaging in offices. 2) Calculating BMI for all patients aged 2 and older. 3) Using the 5-2-1-0 Healthy Habits Questionnaire to have a respectful conversation about lifestyles with

their patients. “All of the Franklin County Let’s Go! sites are committed to creating a space and culture that encourages children to be healthy and the recognized sites are going the extra mile. It’s wonderful to work with such a dedicated and energetic group of people who care deeply about the wellbeing of children in our community,” said Molly Clark, Let’s Go! program coordinator at the Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County. A list of all 2015 Let’s Go! recognized sites is available at www.letsgo.org n

Not Miffed by Much John McDonald

I think it was Einstein who said: “Everything is relative. From an airplane an uncle looks like an ant.” Like I said I don’t know who first said that, but I’ve always assumed that they were punished for such a play on words. Don’t ask me why, but I thought of that quote after reading in the newspaper that Route 3 between Ellsworth and Bar Harbor has been designated - by a band of free-lance list-makers - as one of the worst bottlenecks in the country. Forget for a minute that there must have been something more important that these people could

have been doing. Also forget that Acadia National Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the nation and roads to popular places do occasionally get congested. While you’re forgetting those things forget this too: Most people heading to a wildly popular destination understand that other people might be going there as well, and therefore there may be delays. Now that I’ve asked you to forget all that stuff I can’t remember why I asked. Sorry. Forget I asked and let’s get back to important things like: What did bottles ever do to get their name attached to something called a “bottleneck study?” According to a recent study by researchers dressed, we assume, in lab coats and safe-

ty glasses, the road that connects the mainland to Mount Desert Island is among the top 25 most congested tourist destinations in the United States. The classification left some local officials and summer visitors scratching

their heads, and prompted a number of diverse reactions. Proving that bottlenecks are all relative, one tourist said: “What traffic? We’re from Southern California. This is beautiful compared to what we’re used to.” A local official ex-

pressed concern that the route’s status on the list might scare away some tourists. Following that comment, officials and residents of other Maine towns demanded to know why their local bottlenecks didn’t make the cut. A resident of Skowhegan said: “Have these researchers ever tried to get through downtown Skowhegan in summer when people are heading to camp or to the lake? It’s chaos down there. I’m a little miffed that we weren’t mentioned.” Someone who identified themselves as some kind of town official said that Naples’ Causeway, otherwise known as Western Maine’s Manic Mile, has to be one of the worst bottlenecks that any group of traffic engineers ever devised. “Can you believe we only got ‘honorable men-

tion?’ ” If you ask my opinion Route 302, otherwise known as known as Western Maine’s Hysterical Highway, could beat any stretch of Route 3 in a fair and unbiased study. The bottleneck status came as no shock to the man who designs roads for the state Department of Transportation. Eventually his plans become cast in sand, gravel and blacktop. “Frankly, I was surprised that there weren’t a couple more Maine towns” on the list, he said, almost sounding miffed. He then mentioned Camden, Rockland and Freeport. He omitted Meddybemps, though. A Meddybemps resident, asked if he was miffed at not making the list, replied. “We’re not miffed by much in Meddybemps.” n

Protect Your Vehicle From Snow, Ice and Damage From the Cold

Scrapers should only be used on windows and not on the body of the car.

Winter can be an unforgiving season. Freezing temperatures coupled with snow and ice can take its toll on people who live in climates where cold weather is a fact of winter life. While winter can test people’s patience, it also can be harsh on cars

and trucks. Understanding what components of a vehicle can be compromised by dropping temperatures and snowy roads can help drivers take action to safeguard their automotive investments. While the Canadian Automobile Association notes that winter

can wreak havoc on just about every part of a vehicle, there are some parts that seem to bear the brunt of Old Man Winter’s abuse. Properly servicing and caring for a car or truck can help. Drivers should take their vehicles for a tuneup and inspection before wintry weather arrives. A mechanic will examine the car battery and check antifreeze levels and make sure that the thermostat, defroster, brakes, and even wiper blades are working effectively. Have the tires inspected for adequate tread, which can make navigating roads safer. If the treads are worn, replace the tires. In addition to visiting their mechanics, drivers can perform

some inspections and fixes themselves. · Check that all of the vehicle’s lights are operational so your car can be easily seen during inclement weather. Exchange your existing windshield washer fluid with one that will not freeze in cold conditions. Check the nozzles on the windshield-washer system routinely and clear out any blockages of ice or debris. While addressing windshield washer fluid, also replace worn out windshield wiper blades with ones that can withstand snow and icy weather. · A new coating of wax can serve as a shield against road salt, snow, sleet, and rain. Try a polymer wax to protect the

paint. Whenever possible, rinse off salt and grime so it does not dry on the car and gradually wear away at the paint. Some drivers mistakenly believe that salt stops being a problem once it dries simply because moisture is the active ingredient for a corrosive reaction. But humidity in the air is enough to keep the salt eating away at the car’s paint, and that can contribute to rust. Be sure to rinse off the undercarriage of the vehicle as well. · Have your tires’ alignment checked toward the end of winter or early spring. A season of traveling over pothole-ridden roads or hitting curbs buried under snow drifts can affect the alignment. Get every-

thing back on track. Similarly, inspect tires routinely, as weather changes can affect tire pressure and strength. · Use a soft snow brush or a foam brush to clear snow off of the car. Avoid hard plastic scrapers you might use on your windshield, as they can scratch painted surfaces. · Try to park the vehicle in a garage or under a car port, each of which can protect cars and trucks from the often harsh elements of winter. Vehicles can be affected by the cold weather. Keep them running efficiently to prevent damage this winter. n

Have a Happy, Healthy & Safe Halloween!

Follow these simple tips to keep little ghouls and goblins out of harm’s way on Halloween.

KIDS

PARENTS

• Never trick-or-treat alone. Walk with a group or trusted adult. • Walk from house to house, and look both ways before crossing the street. Don’t run, and use sidewalks and crosswalks wherever possible. • Put reflective tape on your costume or treat bag to make sure drivers can see you in the dark, and carry a flashlight with you. • Examine all of your treats to make sure they are safe and sealed before eating them. • Don’t wear loose costumes or shoes that may cause you to trip, and use nontoxic makeup instead of a mask to make sure you can see clearly. • Make sure costume accessories such as swords or knives are short, soft and flexible. • Don’t approach dark houses when trick-or-treating, and never go inside a stranger’s house. • Don’t approach pets while wearing a Halloween costume. They may not recognize you.

• Provide healthier options for trick-or-treaters like low-calorie or low-sugar treats or nonedible items like stickers, erasers, pencils or small toys. • Keep candlelit pumpkins and luminaries away from walkways and doorsteps, and never leave them unattended. • Slow down and be on the lookout for trick-or-treaters when driving. • Never let kids trick-or-treat alone. Go with them if they are under age 12, and make sure older children are with a group of trusted friends. Go over the planned trick-or-treat route with your child, and be sure to set a curfew. • Make sure your porch and walkway are well-lit, and move any potential tripping hazards out of the path of trick-or treaters. • Keep family pets away from trick-or-treaters,even if they are friendly. • Limit the amount of candy your kids eat each day, and encourage them to give away excess candy.

MFM Completion of 25-Year-Old Building Due This Winter

The Maine Forestry Museum has closed for the season and will reopen in June 2016. Submitted by Ron Haines This is a major project for the basement of the original museum building (former Rangeley Lakes Region Logging Museum) which will, when completed, con-

vert that level of the building into a major museum display area from its present unfinished condition and being used mainly for storage. When this is completed the museum will have nearly one third more quality display area. It will be the final stage of the major changes being made recently on this quarter century old building. Presently we are seeking some support from our members and other friends in the community to purchase all the materials not yet donated needed for the project and get them inside before the real snows of winter 2015-16 arrive. We already have received in donation the majority of such materials as the project has been in progress since 2012.Now we have commitments for the gratis labor as well to get this work done this winter, however, all those materials need to be in the

building soon. We are hoping that listing the materials needs and the individual costs for all these needed supplies we yet lack might be helpful in stimulating support/funding before we lose the “window of opportunity” to have the project done for our season 2016. If we can can get these materials or the funds for purchase before Nov. 15th we will be golden. Take a look at those needs and see if you could support this late hour effort to get

the basement of our museum done. Still Needed: • 27 sheets of 4 X 8 feet / 1 inch Styrofoam Insulation ($17.10 per sheet and a total cost of $461.70) • 7 1/2” 4 X 12 mildew resistance sheetrock ($20.70 a sheet for a total cost of $144.90) • 1 5 gal bucket of joint compound ($15.79) • 2 250 ft. spools of 12-2 with grd. Copper wire ($58.89 per spool for total of $117.78) • Job hardware but unknown amounts:

such as nails, screws, etc. (approx. $100) You can see we are about $874.40 away from getting our museum basement project materials thus making us a full three story museum. If you care to donate toward this achievement we suggest one of two ways. 1. A direct mailing to Maine Forestry Museum, Box 154, Rangeley, ME 04970, but please identify your intentions to donate to this project. 2. You can contact Rangeley Building Sup-

ply by phone 864-5644 or in person at the store to make a donation to our account at RBS for these purchases. Please make sure your donation, by whichever method you use, has indicated your name and contact information. We certainly want to be thanking everyone and if we are successful be able to invite you to the open house next spring so you can see the results at the project’s completion.
