Eliot’s Wilson to Raise Funds by Running Across the U.S. ELIOT Many people make an effort to support cancer-related nonprofits but not everyone raises funds by running across the entire continental United States; that’s 3,250 miles in total. But that’s exactly what 28-yearold Eliot resident and Planet Fitness trainer Michael Wilson plans to do next month. Michael was first personally impacted by cancer at age seven when his grandfather lost his battle to colon cancer. Years later, his best friend’s mother passed away from cancer, and then his great grandmother was

diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 (but fortunately, is a survivor!)

When Michael was introduced to two locally-based cancer-related nonprofits, he was inspired to do more to support them: Lucy’s Love Bus helps children with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses by providing free integrative therapies such as massage, meditation, acupuncture, music therapy, and therapeutic horseback riding. Its sister organization MaxLove Project also provides integrative wellness services and culinary medicine to children with cancer. Michael’s goal is to raise $35,000 to be split evenly between the two organizations. So

far, he’s at about $3,950. How does one train and prepare for a run across the country? A key part of Michael’s training is his daily 10-mile round trip “run commute” to Planet Fitness in Portsmouth, NH, where he has worked as a trainer for a little over a year. He’s also funding his cross-country trek on his own so that everything he raises can support the benefitting charities; that means he recently sold his vehicle in order to save money for the costs associated. He balances his daily runs with strength training at Planet Fitness.

Michael will fly to Los Angeles on March 28 and begin his run from Santa Monica Beach and finish on the boardwalk in Newburyport, MA, in the summer. He plans to run 40 miles a day, entirely solo for the first half; his girlfriend is also a distance runner and will join him on the second half of his trip, along with a few friends who will cycle alongside him for company at various points. To learn more about Michael’s run on his donation page, go to https://give.lucyslovebus. org/campaign/michaels-runacross-america/c288092.

“This event is critical to the success of many family businesses and producers in Maine. The 38th annual event will certainly look and feel a bit different due to the pandemic, but we’re ready,” MMPA President Scott Dunn said in a statement. “We have found creative ways to celebrate the event in different ways.

This project will support the development of current energy converters (CECs), which convert kinetic energy from river water into other usable forms of clean energy. “Current energy conversion systems offer immense potential in Maine, where our rivers are great in number and

great in strength. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee and a longtime advocate for funding for this program, I’m proud this large grant is coming to Ocean Renewable Power Company at a critical moment.

Dear York County Residents & Businesses: The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on York County residents and businesses can't be overstated. Many of us lost loved ones, many lost their jobs, and some lost their business. At the same time, we all felt the impact of isolation and separation from our family, friends, and co-workers. No doubt, the last year was challenging, but even in the darkest moments, we showed the world that Mainers are resilient, compassionate, and FEARLESS when it comes to supporting our family, friends, and communities. As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, York County Community College is ready to help in every possible way. At YCCC, our goal is not just to help the economy recover but to see it SOAR. After all, YCCC's purpose is to inspire and empower our students and communities to thrive! As we move forward, YCCC makes the following commitment to all Maine residents and businesses:

At York County Community College, we believe that our job is to help you achieve your goals. If you are an individual who wants to take courses, pursue a degree, or obtain a training credential, we can help.

SOUTH BERWICK Central Elementary School students have begun their annual ‘Planting of Green’. This year, students will plant seeds in their Outdoor Classroom hoop house. Traditionally there has been a whole-school Planting of the Green held in the gym. Seedlings would begin to grow in classrooms and would later be transferred to the hoop house. This year small groups of students will refresh the hoop house soil with organic soil and plant seeds that were donated by York Woods Tree & Products. Students in all classrooms will plant seeds and take care of them while they grow, finding ways to safely share the produce when it is ready to harvest.

~ News ~ Garden Welcomes New Members SOUTH BERWICK One activity that has gained popularity this past year is gardening. The South Berwick Community Garden off Willow Street is ready to welcome a few new members. “In these challenging times it is especially gratifying to have a place to garden and to come together safely,” said Mimi Demers, South Berwick community garden coordinator. “People are finding new meaning and importance in being outside and active, raising our own healthy food.” Besides being able to grow vegetables and flowers, gardeners can chat with others, sharing tips on growing or stories of their lives. Of course, community gardeners wear masks and have maintained careful social distancing, and will continue to do so as long as it is suggested, Demers said. The garden has 32 raised beds, each 5’ x 10’. Plot rental is $15 per season. The fee is waived in case of hardship. One must be a citizen of South Berwick to be eligible. Priority for available plots is given to those who have nowhere else to garden. Gardeners are asked to plant by the end of June, to keep their plot tidy, and to clean up at the end of the season. Each year the garden sees some turnover as members find the circumstances of their lives

change. There are currently several plots up for grabs. In addition to the plots used by residents, several plots are planted and maintained by volunteers to provide food for the Maine Harvest For Hunger program, administered by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Service. The annual spring meeting to plan the gardens will be held in late April. For more information, email or call 207-384-5258.

~ Arts & Entertainment ~ Marshwood High School Presents A One-Act Play SOUTH BERWICK This year’s one-act play will be part of a virtual Maine Drama Festival and it will stream for free on Saturday, March 27 at 7 p.m. The link will be emailed, and will be posted on Marshwood Theatre’s Facebook page at www.facebook. com/marshwood-theatre-1256 18590879404. The cast includes Gabi Giniusz, Riley Hanscom, Kate Adams, Janet Homans, Alana

Moretti, and Tucker Whelan. Written in New York City during the 2020 lockdown, “Waiting for the Host” is a show that is specifically meant to be performed remotely. The MHS cast has rehearsed entirely on Zoom. Synopsis: While theatres, playgrounds, schools, and churches are shuttered by a modern plague, the rector of a small church on Long Island gathers a handful of parish-

ioners via Zoom in April 2020. His goal is to record a theatrical reading of the story of the Passion for the church website. As exes bicker and technology confuses, this socially distant endeavor quickly becomes chaotic. Still, in the effort, the group finds a strange, painful closeness, and that their comic and clumsy reading has become a kind of desperate prayer. Running time is about 45 minutes.

Discussion Panel on Southern Maine Archaeology KENNEBUNK On Thursday, March 25 at 4 p.m., the public is invited to visit the Brick Store Museum virtually to hear from archaeologists and citizen scientists speak on archaeological work being done in Southern Maine via Zoom. Participants will see a presentation from Maine archaeologists: Tim Spahr (Cape Porpoise Archaeological Alliance), Dr. Arthur Anderson (University of New England); Dr. Gemma Hudgell (Northeast Archaeology Research Center); Chris Sockalexis (UMaine and Penobscot Nation Tribal Historic Preservation Officer); and Elizabeth Kelley Erickson (citizen-scientist and artist at CPAA) discuss recent work in the field,

including the discovery of the Cape Porpoise dugout canoe. Registration is free with donations gratefully accepted to offset stipends for speakers. The Brick Store Museum’s exhibition, “Cape Porpoise: Archaeology in the Archipelago,” continues through May. The exhibit explores 8,000 years of artifacts uncovered during recent archaeological investigations conducted by the Cape Porpoise Archaeological Alliance (CPAA). A highlight of the exhibit is the remains of the oldest dugout canoe ever found in the Wabanaki homeland of the Far Northeast, first identified in 2018 and painstakingly excavated in the summer of 2019 by CPAA.

Lessons to Learn from Maine’s Bicentennial

SOUTH BERWICK Old Berwick Historical Society will present an online lecture on Thursday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m. titled “Commemorating Maine Statehood: What can we Learn from the Bicentennial?”. This illustrated presentation and discussion by Dr. Liam Riordan explores the statehood process in Maine that culminated in 1820 with formal separation from Massachusetts. That struggle engaged a range of challenging public issues that are still recognizable today. Commemorating statehood can help us to better understand the explosive place of slavery vis-avis the Maine-Missouri Crisis, the sharp partisan conflict and repeated separation votes that

took place from 1792-1819, the uncertain international border and regional diversity issues in the State, and the struggle for Wabanaki sovereignty. Participants can register for the online lecture on the Old Berwick Historical Society’s website. Admission is free to members, with a $5 suggested donation for non-members. The lecture is open to the public. Dr. Riordon is a Professor of History at the University of Maine. He was awarded the Fulbright Scholar Award in 2012. In 2020, he was honored with the Neal W. Allen, Jr., History Award to recognize and honor outstanding contributions to the field of Maine history, awarded by the Maine Historical Society. Riordon

IDEXX’s support of the pilot year of the new Titan Challenge program will no doubt have a big impact on the lives of Maine high school students this year.” The event will take place virtually, connecting students

Typically, the caller informs the customer a crew is on the way to shut off service unless an immediate payment is made. The perpetrators may tell the customer that the company had not received a recent payment or had incorrectly processed a payment, so the customer must pay again. The scammer often demands the customer purchase a prepaid debit card (Green Dot is a common brand) to make the payment over the phone. Occasionally, the scammer will demand a payment in cash and advise that a company representative will be coming in person within the hour to collect it.

Administration is accelerating the schedule of Maine’s vaccination plan to make all Maine adults eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine by May 1. “From the day we received our first shipment of vaccines, we have been determined to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible, focusing our limited supply first on those who are most at risk of dying from COVID-19. With the Biden Administration promising to increase the supply of vaccine in the next few months, we will do what we had always hoped we could: accelerate our vaccine timeline,” said Governor Janet Mills. “As the Biden Administration works to get us shots, we will continue our work to get them into arms. The future is getting brighter, but there is more to do – and my Administration will continue to work

with the President and with health care providers across the state to get people vaccinated and move us closer to getting back to normal.” In announcing Maine’s age-based vaccination approach two weeks ago, Governor Mills said the timeframe could be accelerated based on an increase in supply of vaccine. Following the President’s directive, the planned vaccine schedule is now as follows: March 3: Age 60 and older; April 1: Age 50 and older; May 1: All adults. Maine is also implementing the Biden Administration’s directive to vaccinate teachers, school staff, and licensed child care workers. Currently, the Maine Departments of Education and Health and Human Services are hosting vaccination clinics for Maine teachers age 60 and older.

VA Maine Healthcare Begins Janssen Vaccinations AUGUSTA VA Maine Healthcare System has begun COVID-19 vaccination with the Janssen vaccine following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization for this vaccine. In clinical trials, the Janssen vaccine showed an efficacy of 66% against moderate to severe/critical COVID19 disease occurring at least 28 days after vaccination — and demonstrated greater than 85% efficacy in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 disease occurring at least 28

days after vaccination. “VA Maine is eager to be able to offer a second highly effective vaccine to more Veterans,” said Tracye Davis “This one-dose vaccine will help us reach our ultimate goal of offering COVID-19 vaccination to all Veterans and employees who want to be vaccinated.” As of March 3, VA Maine provided Moderna COVID-19 vaccine first doses to more than 6,192 Veterans, employees and federal partners — and both doses to more than 2,482 of these individuals. Veterans who are enrolled

and receiving health care in VA are eligible to get the vaccine when their facility has vaccine supply and reaches their risk category. Veterans are required to enroll with VA in order to receive health care. However, to receive care in VA, enrollees must meet certain eligibility requirements under current law, which may include income limits. Veterans can get the latest information and sign up to receive updates on VA’s vaccine webpage at health-care/covid-19-vaccine/ stay-informed.

reducing free radical damage that can cause inflammation and contribute to the formation of various chronic diseases. When possible, select darker, grade B maple syrups since those contain more beneficial antioxidants than the lighter syrups. Some primary antioxidants found in maple syrup include benzoic acid, gallic acid, cinnamic acid, and various flavanols like catechin, epicatechin, rutin and quercetin. While most are found at low concentrations, others are present in higher quantities, so it’s possible that the benefits of these antioxidants might counteract some of the downsides to consuming the syrup’s high quantity of sugar. Maple syrup gets a lower score on the Glycemic Index. Refined sugar, and refined carbohydrates in general, are known to be rapidly metabolized by the liver causing a “sugar high,” followed by a quick “sugar crash.” Even worse, consuming too much sugar quickly spikes your blood sugar and raises insulin levels, which over time can lead to lower insulin response and problems managing blood glucose, with is the reason diabetes develops. However, keep in mind that consuming too much sugar, from any source, is one of the leading causes of some of the most widespread health problems, like obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease, even natural sweeteners like maple syrup should be used in small amounts. When it comes to solutions, it’s best to minimize sugar intake overall and especially to avoid refined sugar. Maple syrup fights inflammatory diseases. Because maple syrup nutrition supplies inflammation-reducing polyphenol antioxidants, it can be considered part of a healthy diet that’s helpful in preventing certain diseases like arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease or heart disease. Maple syrup’s plant-based compounds reduce oxidative stress, which is responsible for aging us at a quicker rate and reducing the strength of our immune system. Maple Syrup may help protect against cancer. While some evidence shows that to a certain degree sugar can cause cancer or at least contribute to it, maple syrup seems to a much See SYRUP page 17...

Health & Fitness Legislature Approves COVID-19 Patient Bill of Rights AUGUSTA The Maine Legislature approved a bill from Senate President Troy Jackson of Allagash and House Speaker Ryan Fecteau of Biddeford to establish a COVID-19 Patient Bill of Rights. The vote was 139-1 in the House and unanimous in the Senate. LD 1, “An Act to Establish the COVID-19 Patients Bill of Rights” would eliminate barriers to COVID-19 screening, testing and immunization as well as other health services so Mainers can keep their families and loved ones safe and healthy during this crisis. “Now that the federal government has approved a third vaccine and increased the number of doses coming into the state daily, we need to ensure nothing stands in the way of

Mainers getting their shot,” said President Jackson. “LD 1 will do just that by improving access to screening, testing, and vaccinations. The Patient Bill of Rights is key to getting us through this crisis and a post-COVID world.” The proposal would require state-regulated health insurance companies to cover COVID-19 screening, testing and immunization at no cost to the patient. It also prevents health care providers from charging patients any sort of fee-related to these types of services. Although uninsured Mainers should be able to access testing and vaccination at no cost, the amended proposal includes language to ensure that if an uninsured Mainer is at a testing site that doesn’t have a contract with the Department of Health and Human Services: they are made

aware of the cost ahead of time; they are made aware of alternative sites where they can get tested for free; and they are provided with the MaineCare waiver to get reimbursed for testing if they choose to get tested at a site without a DHHS contract. The legislation was amended in committee to remove the telehealth provisions. Those items require additional work and will be taken up by the Legislature’s Health Coverage, Insurance and Financial Services committee in a different bill later this session. LD 1 will now go to the governor’s desk. Governor Janet Mills has 10 days upon receiving legislation to sign a bill into law, allow it to become law without her signature, or veto it. The emergency measure would take effect immediately upon becoming law.

contribute to candida, IBS, leaky gut syndrome and other digestive system disorders. Most artificial sweeteners also cause symptoms of indigestion, including gas, bloating, cramping and constipation. To keep the digestive tract in healthier shape, maple syrup can be a much better alternative to use in baked goods, yogurt, oatmeal or smoothies. Maple syrup contains zinc and manganese in fairly high amounts, in addition to potassium and calcium. Zinc can help fight illness and improve immunity since it keeps level of white blood cells up, while manganese plays a role a crucial role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, blood sugar regulation, brain and nerve function. Maple Syrup may enhance

antibiotic effects. While targeting bad bacteria, antibiotics can also attack healthy cells, while the overuse of antibiotics results in the creation of “superbugs” that no longer respond to antibiotic treatment. When researchers investigated extracts from maple syrup in conjunction with antibiotics ciprofloxacin and carbenicillin, they observed the

We are particularly interested in innovative programs from local area nonprofits that are geared to improving the quality of life of our seniors.” In 2021, that particularly means programs aimed at helping older adults stay connected and focused on wellness through the pandemic. The Huntington Common Charitable Fund was created in 2006 to help older adults in York County lead complete and fulfilled lives; Kennebunk Savings has served as steward for the fund since its inception. The next grant deadline is March 31.

Wells Rotary Holds Day of Warming

WELLS Each year the Wells-Ogunquit Senior Center provides a program called “A Day of Warming” to local seniors from January 2 through March 13. Established originally to help seniors find a place of warmth during the cold months of winter, the Center collaborates with community partners to provide entertainment, a lunch and fellowship. This year the Rotary Club of Wells sponsored the event the first week in March providing more than 50 meals which consisted of a pork roast dinner (prepared by our Rotarian chef Gloria Charlton), beverages and delicious lemon cake provided by Bread and Roses Bakery. Rotarians and family members volunteered to help cook, plate, and serve to seniors who enjoyed Irish music and fellowship along the way. To meet all restrictions from the Maine CDC regarding seating and social distanc-

Historical Society of Wells-Ogunquit Seeks to Match Grant Funds WELLS The Historical Society of Wells & Ogunquit faces a lateMay deadline to match a grant for repairing and painting the interior of the historic meetinghouse. The project will cost $26,300, half of which is being offered by the Davis Family Foundation, only if the Society can raise the remaining $13,150 by mid-May. So far, they have raised $6,500 towards the match and now, as they enter the home stretch, they are seeking 10 Donors to give $800 each in order to complete the goal. “We’re grateful for the support of the Davis Family Foundation and hope to match their grant by Mid-May.” Says Society Board Chair, Irene Crocker, “We’re so close, it would be

a shame to lose such a valuable opportunity.” Sitting prominently on Post Road, the historic First Church is the fourth meetinghouse on this site in Wells. The congregation was established in 1642 by Reverend John Wheelwright, who had fled persecution in Boston for his non-conformist religious beliefs. Reverend Wheelwright and his followers met in local homes for the first few decades, before the first meetinghouse was built in 1662. The current structure was built in 1862 in the Gothic Revival style, and used timbers from the previous structures. It was deeded to the Historical Society in 1969 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. The First Church meet-

ing, the Rotary Club also made accommodations to provide To-Go containers to those who could not attend. Rick Coyne, President of the Rotary Club of Wells states “Our club looks forward to this service project every year. Being part of a community response to help our seniors, is paramount to our motto which is Service Above Self. Through the generous support of our sponsors and donors, Rotary can earmark funding each year to support service project such as the Day of Warming,” Rotary Club of Wells is comprised of committed business owners and community leaders dedicated to make a positive impact within the Wells community through philanthropic endeavors and community services. The missions of Rotary is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

In 2018 the York County Soil and Water Conservation District, in partnership with the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, was awarded a $41,600 grant to create a Watershed-Based Management Plan (WBMP) for the Kennebunk River Watershed. Funding for this project was provided, in part, by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under Section 604(b) of the Clean Water Act. The funding is administered by the Maine DEP in partnership with the U.S. EPA. The plan, written by local consulting firm FB Environmen-

tal, includes a wide variety of information such as recent and historical water quality data, results from watershed surveys, a local ordinance review, pollutant load modeling, and input from local citizens and stakeholders. All of this information was evaluated to form an action plan with the goal of restoring the Kennebunk River and its tributaries back to meeting state Class B standards. The recommended actions also come with a timeline, estimated costs, and priority levels for each of the four main watershed towns (Arundel, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Lyman). Many of these recommended actions also received local support and endorsement via a survey and virtual public input sessions that were held throughout August 2020. This WBMP was developed to serve as a guide for watershed protection, restoration, and enhancement efforts over the next 10 years. The plan includes the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (US EPA)

nine minimum required elements, making the watershed eligible to apply for future grant funds through section 319 of the Clean Water Act to implement actions outlined in the plan. The plan is available to read and download on the WNERR website ( For more information, contact Mindee Goodrum, Project Manager at the York County Soil and Water Conservation District, at or 207-432-3516.

Sally was an unwanted kitty from midcoast Maine. Safe Haven brought her to Wells to rejoin her old friend Soulful. We had rescued Soulful from a holding facility earlier that year. They were so close, we wanted them both to enjoy a good life together. Unfortunately, it turned

out Soulful was very ill when we rescued her, and we lost her to cancer. We’re comforted to know that Sally and Soulful did have some time together, enjoying the good life at Safe Haven, before it was time to say goodbye. Since then, Sally has been a shy but dear kitty. She sits in her cat room, watching the other cats being brave, approaching visitors, getting pet. She’s interested in reaching out, but she just can’t quite take the giant leap of faith needed to trust people enough to interact with them. We’ve seen this so many times before. When shy kitties like Sally are adopted by the right person, the new family reports that the kitty has opened up, trusted and blossomed in their care. We want this for Sally! Are YOU the right person for Sally? She needs a quiet home and a happy, laidback kitty to be her new best friend. The compa-

Gennaro Annunziata, 58 OGUNQUIT – Gennaro Annunziata, age 58, passed away peacefully from COVID19 on March 11, 2021 in Florida. He was born August 23, 1962. He was co-owner of La Pizzeria in Ogunquit for 22 years with his life partner Andrew Migliorini. He was a pillar of the community taking part in local events and charities, especially known for his creative Christmas floats, and his little puppy-pal Stromboli. Condolences posted on only begin to express the communities loss: “I will never forget working for so many years with Gerry. His kindness, his smile, his dry wit, and just his presence was so true. Will never forget that NY accent of his! RIP my old friend...” one wrote, among other sentiments. Another wrote, “Gennaro was a meaningful friend who will be sadly missed. His smile, spirit, and goodness will live on in each of you every day. He will always be remembered as a hard-working, honest, fun, and respectable man.” Andrew recently noted on Gennaro’s Facebook page, “Everyone that met Gennaro knows he lived life to the fullest and wished to be remembered in that light. Happy, joking around, wearing a tank top (or no shirt), and smiling behind a pair of mirrored sunglasses... Let’s all remember G as he would have

Brigitte Gefrich, 71 ELIOT – After a long illness, Brigitte Gefrich passed away on Sunday, March 7. She was where she wanted to be, at her home in Eliot with a view of her gardens and Chrissy’s Pond. She was surrounded by her beloved husband of 30 years, George, close friends, and caregivers. Brigitte led a life defined by her passions which included love of her family, nature, animals, cooking, and the well-being and protection of children. Born in Olching-Gröbenzell near Munich, Germany, on May 08, 1949, Brigitte moved to the United States in 1954 with her mother Johanna Liedtke and her Stepfather George Wellington Brown. They lived in New York and Connecticut before moving to Camden. Brigitte grew up playing in the tidal pools of Penobscot Bay and climbing Mount Battie to visit her favorite spot. After the accidental death of her first Stepfather, Brigitte’s mother married internationally known Naval Architect, Geerd Hendel. Brigitte attended Emmanuel College, Simmons University, and the University of Massachusetts in Boston where she pursued multiple studies at different times in her life. A woman of many interests and talents, Brigitte had a life filled with a variety of activities and professions.

THANK YOU ST. JUDE: May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, helper of the hopeless, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day, by the 9th day your prayers will be answered. It has never been known to fail. Publication must be promised and done.


As a young woman, she took up cheerleading, participated in multiple clubs at school, and was an award winning baker. Later discovered as a model, Brigitte took advantage of her beauty and style and went to work for the Ford Modeling Agency in New York City, followed by contracts with Lord & Taylor and several fashion outlets in Boston. Brigitte’s grandmother, Jean M. Brown (Douglas), was a wellknown fashion icon in Boston in the early to mid-1900s so modeling was in her blood. Demonstrating her diverse talents, Brigitte later owned and ran a successful Detective Agency. Devoted to creating beauty all around her, Brigitte dedicated much of her time to indoor and outdoor design; most notably designing and cultivating her gardens in Camden, Sherborn, MA, Kensington, NH, Appleton, and most recently at her home in Eliot. Her gardens were appreciated by all who had the pleasure to view them and her gardens on Wild Pasture Road in Kensington were notable enough to win an award from the Exeter Area Garden Club. Paying careful attention to integrating her gardens into their natural settings, Brigitte cultivated gardens to support local fauna, including butterflies and bees. She carried her love of nature into many aspects of her life including her generous and continuous support of multiple charities for animals, the environment, and the preservation of natural habitats for endangered species. Informed by her experiences in the ‘60s and ‘70s, Brigitte participated in various causes dedicated to peace, equal rights, special needs populations, and political activism. Her love of music was always evident and some of her favorites were Janice Joplin, James Brown, Joan Baez, and Tom Rush. Always attuned to the needs of others, Brigitte volunteered her cooking talents for local seniors and would enjoy not only providing good food but also loving kindness through her compassionate company and beautiful smile. A loving wife and mother, Brigitte was devoted to her family and children. She was widowed by her first husband, David Schulman, and raised her two children by him, Douglas and Tara. As a special needs child, Tara required extra care and attention. While Brigitte dedicated herself to the care and nurturing of both of her children, she also provided Tara with the extra attention and resources she needed until Tara’s accidental death in 1991. Brigitte continued her dedication to the well-being of children by volunteering to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). After her training, she took an oath to defend abused and neglected children

and participated in the refinement of child protection laws in New Hampshire. Brigitte’s life was a lesson in authenticity. Her actions and the way she spent her time and resources left no doubt about her generosity with those in need and her dedication to cultivating beauty around her. Her love was universal and the core of her being and beliefs were always reflected in her actions. Brigitte is survived by her husband George Gefrich; son Douglas David Schulman with wife Rebecca; and grandchildren, Arthur and Graham. She has extended family in Hamburg and Munich, Germany and, through George, has additional family in Connecticut, New Jersey, North and South Carolina, and California. Services were held on Wednesday, March 17 at St. Christopher’s Catholic Church in York. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Brigitte’s honor to the ASPCA, World Wildlife Fund, or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Always in George’s heart: May God keep and nourish my beautiful wife. • • • • • • • • • •

Bernier-Gelinas FUNERAL HOME

Kittery, ME We are often asked by the families we serve, here at JS Pelkey & Son and Bernier Funeral Homes, why certain expressions and traditions exist in the funeral service industry. One of the most often asked questions is “Why send flowers to a memorial service or funeral, aren’t they just a waste of money?” Well nothing could be further from the truth. As my friend Todd Van Beck recently wrote in an article: Flowers are sent to funerals for several reasons. Flowers are a means of expression. It is often difficult for those mourning a death to put feelings into words. Flowers are a visual expression of love, sympathy, and respect. They are a way of lending support and sharing the burden of grief. In addition to sending flowers to the funeral, there is a growing trend to send flowers to the home of the bereaved after the service. Some people also send flowers to the church in memory of the deceased. Flowers create a background of warmth and beauty which adds to the dignity and consolation of the service. Those who have attended services where there were no flowers have noted that something was

bereaved’s feelings in the patterns of community support which are psychologically beneficial. Flowers, however, express the inexpressible – they are symbolic.

missing – that the funeral was depressing. The funeral meets the bereaved’s need for support. Death throws people into despair and depression by separating them from one who has provided love, companionship, and security. The funeral and customs provide the means by which those close to them can give their support and share their suffering. The funeral period provides for the expression of sorrow. Only through talking about the past can the bereaved person realize the extent of the relationship with the deceased, and accept the loss and suffering. Only through weeping and talking to good listeners can they release their grief and feelings of guilt and hostility. Experts in grief therapy believe that it can be expressed best through rites, rituals, and ceremonies. The ceremony deals primarily with intellectual concepts and doesn’t fully engage the

There are three points to be stressed, finally, in connection with the tradition of funeral flowers. First, the role of flowers are both symbolic and aesthetic. They add great value to the richness and meaning of the ritual. Second, flowers represent sympathy extended to the bereaved. Third, flowers are sent to both the living and the dead. They are sent to the living as comfort and as tokens of respect for the deceased. We, at the JS Pelkey & Son and the Bernier Funeral Homes, hold the value of the work our local florists do in very high regard. We always encourage the families we serve to contact a local florist directly. Certainly there are national floral outlets that can be reached with a simple Google search but, honestly, the quality of these products are often substandard. Simply click the “Send Flowers” tab on our website and you will be directed to our list of trusted florists. Please call us about any questions with which we may help.

Updates on Community Sports & General Guidance Checklists

AUGUSTA The Mills Administration posted updated COVID-19 Prevention Checklists for General Guidance and for Community Sports.

Community Sports Guide-

These changes allow for all levels of play for low-risk sports, and for most levels of play for moderate-risk sports. High risk sports may also resume but only within team competition.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced thrill-seeker, into serene lakes or riding big surf, the Lift eFoil allows you to craft the adventure that’s best for you with an allelectric, silent motor that glides through any body of water at up to 25 mph. For more information and to see Lift efoils in action, go to

The Maine Principals Association has committed to aligning its guidance for school sports with this revised guidance for community sports.

University of New Hampshire are among the first to test a modern technique, environmental DNA analysis, for surveying the invasive green crab in northern New England estuaries. “We monitor invasive green crabs because of their harmful effects on softshell clam populations and salt marsh habitats,” explained Laura Crane, a research associate at the Wells Reserve. “But surveying green crabs using traditional methods is a timeconsuming process. The environmental DNA method, also known as eDNA, is relatively inexpensive and has proven to be effective for monitoring many aquatic species. We wanted to know how well it would work for crabs in estuarine environments.” The research team looked for green crab DNA in water and sediment samples taken both from a salt marsh and from small aquariums in a laboratory setting. They found environmental DNA methods worked best when egg-bearing female crabs or crab larvae were present in the aquariums. In other situations, they discovered little or no DNA from their study species.

have been extensively tested and successfully applied in research on fish and amphibians. She explained that aquatic animals are constantly shedding bits of themselves into the surrounding water. As they lose scales or tissues, eliminate waste, and release sex cells, their characteristic DNA is carried into the water and falls into sediments. By collecting and analyzing samples for eDNA, scientists can identify which species live nearby, Crane added. “Apparently, hard-shelled crustaceans like crabs do not usually exude enough DNA into their environment to always leave clear evidence they are present,” Crane said. “But during spawning season, egg masses and millions of tiny crab larvae can make DNA easier to detect.” The open-access article, “Effects of life stage on eDNA detection of the invasive European green crab (Carcinus maenas) in estuarine systems,” is available for download at www.wellsreserve. org. The research was funded by a grant to the UNH from the National Estuarine Research Reserve System’s Science Collaborative.
