Out ’n About at The Y for their anti-bullying kick-off event

Emma Galipeau & Dax Catalano (Dax was the Keynote Speaker) Dax was the victim of a brutal beating at 16 years old. Close to death with a brain injury, a severed artery and had blood filling into his brain cavities. Catalano was attacked in the parking lot at the Lewiston Mall. He under went life-saving surgery to repair his broken skull and blood clot in his brain. Dax had been receiving threats from a cyberbully for two months. He had a new girlfriend and had a private message on his Facebook account from someone he didn’t know. Dax wrote it off and didn’t think he was in danger. Today, Dax has made a near full recovery. There is still some emotional healing necessary. Part of that healing is him and his parents, Ron & Maureen sharing their story and helping other families who may be going through the same thing. Jason Gibbons, who plays comedy basketball with the Harlem Superstars and works with the Maine Red Claws has organized “Bouncing Out Bullying”. This show features showtime basketball, martial arts, prizes, the ‘Hometown Hero’ awards and a presentation from a therapist who deals with bullying. "If I can help other kids going through the same situation, to let them know that they're not alone," said Dax. "There are other people going through the same situation, and that they can talk about it. It's ok." Uncle Andy’s Digest ...withravis &T Jimbo

Mean Bug

Prison Library Books: YOU ALWAYS GET CAUGHT by Sue Nora Later

Submitted by Maggie Joyce

One night, as Uncle Andy was watching TV, the doorbell rang. He went to the door and found a six-foot cockroach standing there. The bug grabbed him by the collar, threw him across the room, and then left. Uncle Andy picked himself up and phoned his friend Travis to tell him the bizarre story. "That's amazing," said Travis. "The same this happened to me an hour ago! This huge cockroach rang my doorbell, and when I answered, the bug punched me in the gut and left!" Uncle Andy and Travis decided to visit their buddy Jimbo and get his advice. When they finished telling their tales, Jimbo said: "This is too weird, guys. When I got home from work this afternoon, a huge bug was waiting for me at the door. He beat me up real bad! I think we better go to the cops and get this settled." So the three men went to the local police station and reported their experiences. The desk sergeant just shook his head. "Sorry, fellas, there's nothing we can do. There's just a nasty bug going around." Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

I've been working on my budget. Line one is my fixed expenses, line two is my fixed income and the difference is the fix I'm in.

Submitted by Jimbo

A psychology professor at the University of Miami knew his students expected a terrifyingly long final exam. To play with their minds a little (what do you expect from a psychology professor?) he only put ONE question on the final exam. He watched the reactions of the students as they all opened the exams and saw the one question. Initially they all looked relieved, but as the difficulty of the question began to sink in, those relieved faces sagged to confusion and consternation. All, that is, except for one student. He read the question, tapped his pencil into his palm a few times, then jotted something down on the test paper. He walked up to the professor, handed him the final, and walked out. The professor blinked in surprise, looked at what the student wrote, and smiled. The professor wrote "100%" on the top of that student's test. The question: What is courage? The student's answer: This is. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis

The second said he wanted to go to New York and become a bull on Wall Street. The third wanted to go to the windy city to become a Chicago Bull. The fourth said he wanted to go to Beijing and be a bull in a China shop.

A husband is advised by a psychiatrist to assert himself, "You don't have to let your wife henpeck you. Go home and show her you are the boss." Of course, the husband takes the doctor's advice. He rushes home, slams the door, shakes his fist in his wife's face, and growls, "From now on, you're taking orders from me. I want my supper right now, and when you get it on the table, go upstairs and lay out my best clothes. Tonight, I'm going out with the boys and you are going to stay at home where you belong. And another thing ... you know who's going to comb my hair, adjust my pants, and then tie my bow tie?" "I certainly do," says his wife calmly ...

The professor told us we would be responsible for reading five books over the course of the semester, and that he would provide us with a list of authors from which we could choose. He ambled over to the lectern, took out his class book, and began "Baker, Black, Brooks, Carter, Cook..." I was working feverishly to get down all the names, when I felt a tap on my shoulder.

Faking It

"Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits." – Richard M. Nixon

Submitted by Jimbo

Several years ago, Uncle Andy was sentenced to prison. During his stay, he got along well with the guards and all his fellow inmates. The warden knew that, deep down, Uncle Andy was a good person. So, the warden made arrangements for the inmate to learn a trade while doing his time. Some three years later, Uncle Andy was recognized as one of the best carpenters in the local area. Often, he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for citizens of the community. And he always reported back to prison by early Sunday evening. Uncle Andy was a model inmate. One day, the warden considered remodeling his kitchen, though he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large countertop. So he called Uncle Andy into his office and asked him to do the job for him. To the warden's surprise, Uncle Andy simply refused to help.

The boys from Uncle Andy’s Digest stopped to get a picture with the back nine sponsor sign after finding Andy’s golf ball in the bushes. After 18 holes Uncle Andy had lost every ball he had in his golf bag and proclaimed, “This is it, I’m never golfing ever again!” He seems to have a short memory as he says the same thing every year.

Teddy Ballgame – Submitted by Richard Collins

When he was 34 years old, Ted Williams, baseball great and Marine combat pilot, flew 39 missions over North Korea in a F9F Panther jet. On the last 20 of those missions, he was John Glenn’s wingman. Glenn later said that Ted Williams was the best wingman he ever had. Ted returned to the Red Sox at the age of 35, an age where many ball players had left the game, or were winding down their careers. But, Ted Williams gave the Boston Red Sox 7 more productive years, including winning the American League batting title when he was 38 and 39 years old. Many years later, when he was elderly, and his great achievements were long in the past, he was asked what in his life was he the most proud of. He answered without hesitation, "BEING A MARINE." In 1990, the Seattle Mariners became the first professional team to have a father-son duo play as teammates when Ken Griffey was hired to play along side his son, Ken Griffey, Jr. Gives a whole new meaning to Take Your Child To Work Day!

Sam is no stranger to Main Street Music Lessons – he studied with Steve Grenier at an early age and moved on to study with Bob Thompson (adjunct professor at UMA). Next, he enrolled at UMA, majoring in Jazz & Contemporary Music/Performance & Music Education. Sam comes to us in his final year at UMA while performing in numerous local bands. He is well versed in many styles of music such as funk, jazz, blues and R&B, and excels at slide guitar.

134 Main Street, Auburn

As the chorus and general music teacher at Auburn Middle School, Jason is a welcome addition to MSML as a diverse vocal teacher. His experience with piano, guitar, saxophone, ukulele and even accordion makes his teaching style unique beyond comparison and invaluable to students.

Luiggi’s Pizzeria Holds L/A’s Biggest Pizza Pasta Party Luiggi’s Pizzeria, a landmark in Lewiston since 1953, held L/A’s Biggest Pizza Pasta Party on Saturday, September 22 from 9 a.m. to midnight in celebration of the shop’s new owners. “L/A’s Biggest Pizza Party featured prize drawings throughout the day and a 10% discount on all purchases,” said Angie St. Hilaire. “There was free cake, we be handed out a free tee shirt with every $40 purchase, as well as free tee shirts to some lucky random customers throughout the day.” As the pizzeria celebrates its 60th year in business in 2013, it is now under the ownership of the St. Hilaire and Frenette families. This is the first time that the pizzeria will be operated under new ownership, not related to the original family, since the shop was opened in 1953. Well known for its pizza and pasta selections, Luiggi’s is also the home of a fresh array of sandwiches including the locally famous sandwich, “The Fergy.” The Sabattus Street location is well known to locals for its decades old Luiggi’s sign in front of the shop and its location next to another local landmark, The Blue Goose Tavern. “We plan to continue the tradition of quality food at a great price that Luiggi’s has offered since 1953,” said Kelly St. Hilaire. “We can only hope to continue the great work of three generations that have built Luiggi’s reputation through the years. Many ask if we will be changing anything and we can assure the community that we will be keeping the meat.” Luiggi’s Pizzeria is located at 63 Sabattus Street in Lewiston.

Gorilla Removal

Company Car Benefits: They enjoy a much shorter braking distance.

Submitted by Jimbo

Did I tell you the story about the day I arrived home from work and discovered a gorilla sitting on my roof? Not knowing what to do, I opened the Yellow Pages and looked up "Gorilla Removal." I called the only listing. A man quickly arrived and removed the following equipment from his truck: a ladder, a bunch of bananas, a big stick, a pair of handcuffs, a Chihuahua and a gun. As I was appropriately curious, I asked him what he was going to do with all that stuff. The man replied: "I'm going to use the ladder to get on the roof, then I'm going to throw the bananas to the gorilla. While he's busy eating them, I'm going to knock him off the roof with this stick. When he hits the ground the Chihuahua is going to bite him in the groin, at which time the gorilla will throw his hands in the air, and you slap the cuffs on him." I asked, "What about the gun?" The man handed the gun to me and said, "Sometimes the gorilla knocks me off the roof. If that happens, you shoot the Chihuahua!" Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

I wasn't aware there was a prison in the vicinity and I looked forward to hearing them. The next evening, I was puzzled when four members of the church approached the stage.

OUT ’N ABOUT WITH MIAMI MIKE

Digesters, it’s officially fall…or autumn if you prefer. With this statement I am clearly eluding to all of you raking leaves, gathering firewood and whatever else you need to do to get prepared to hunker down for the winter. So this being October I know you all are either thinking Halloween Party or the super value Ironman costume from the local mega mart for Jr. Don’t bother with the mega marts, bring Jr. to Drapeau’s Costumes of Maine. They have the whole range of costumes from big to small for young and old so pick something more age appropriate for Jr. Now on the opposite side of the spectrum October for many of you digesters is a time to binge on football action and prepare for hunting season. Now I am also well aware that many of you never bothered to disassemble the gun rack in the rear window of your 1993 Silverado. Furthermore you seem to think your blaze orange ball cap is in fashion year round. But for the record we both know you don’t even wear that hat hunting because it is too darn cold and your ears always go numb. So back to the point, I realize I tend to ramble but I like it so you will live, any how go see JT Reid’s Gun shop for all your hunting needs from solvent to shells they got what sells! While we are on the topic of hunting I figure I will take this time to remind you that just because JT Reid’s Guns had the hollow points on sale, and you just had to buy them with a deal that good, you still have to hit the 12 point buck to drop it and since even a 12 pointer isn’t the same size as the broad side of a barn, you may even want to enquire about a personal guide who is able to shoot for you too, but this is simply advice coming from a soda can assassin. I have absolutely dropped my share of soda cans in my day, but these days I can’t take the immense recoil of a moderately powered BB gun, so I have retired leaving the game and soda pop cans to you. As always digesters feel free to email me at UncleAndysDigestMiamiMike@aol.com, follow me on twitter at UADMiamiMike. Until next month be safe, be happy, be Uncle Andy’s Digesters!

Strict is my diet. I must not want. It maketh me to lie down at night hungry. It leadeth me past the confectioners. It trieth my willpower. It leadeth me in the path of alterations for my figure’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the aisles of the pastry department, I will buy no sweet rolls for they are fattening. The cakes and the pies they tempt me. Before me is a table set with green beans and lettuce. I filleth my stomach with liquids. My day’s quota runneth over. Surely calories and weight charts will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the fear of scales forever. Submitted by Richard Collins

Low Ceilings By Natasha Piirainen

My boyfriend, Alex, is very tall, thirteen inches taller than me to be exact. His official height measurement is six feet and six inches, which is good for making him reach things on high shelves, and picking the highest apples when apple picking. He is so tall that when he came to visit my house for the first time last autumn, he had to duck under our doorways to get from room to room. One evening he decided to play with my nine year old sister, Pamela. Don’t tell Pammy I said this, but she is very short, and next to her Alex looks even more like a giant than usual. The two of them chased one another around the house, teasing each other, all in good fun. Finally Alex caught Pammy, picked her up, and placed her on his shoulders. She giggled and screeched, excited to be lifted up so high, and as Alex helped her fit comfortably on his shoulders he stood up on his toes and BOOM, he smacked Pamela’s head right on the ceiling. Luckily Pammy wasn’t hurt, but Alex was a bit embarrassed that his first time visiting my home included him smacking my youngest sister’s head on the ceiling in front of my entire family. It’s been a year since it happened and he and Pammy get along just fine, she even still lets him put her on his shoulders, as long as they are outside and far away from ceilings.

Serving all of Maine for over 40 years! Mediterranean divers, before the Middle Ages, used to gather the golden strands of the pen shell, using them to weave a very fine cloth for the purpose of making womens' gloves. The cloth was so fine, in fact, that a pair of these gloves could be packed into an empty walnut shell, or anything of comparable volume.
