YHS VEX Robotics Team 5156D (left to right) Cam Dalton, Ben Bokskanski, and Hunter Pruett.

YORK York High School’s VEX Robotics Team 5156D is headed to the World VEX Robotics Championship. The team qualified after their performance at Maine’s State Championship in South Portland on March 5, where they took second place in skills and earned the Inspire Award from the judges. They are one of only seven teams from Maine and the sole one from York county to qualify. This team of high school seniors Cam Dalton, builder, Ben Bokskanski, driver, and

Hunter Pruett, programmer, is a seriously enthusiastic and dedicated team that has competed in all four of their high school years and now qualified for two world championships. They have been mentored by supportive coaches Linda Mackaman and Kristen Berube since their freshman year. They will travel to Dallas, TX, May 4-7 to compete against hundreds of teams from the US and other parts of the world. VEX Robotics is a robotics program for elementary through university students, and a subset of Innovation First International.

The VEX Robotics competitions and programs are managed by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation (REC). In April 2018, VEX Robotics Competition was named the largest robotics competition in the world by Guinness World Records. The trio’s fellow York robotics team members are hosting a viewing party to cheer them on. Anyone can tune in to the competition on the website, York High School is proud of this team’s drive and hard work and wish them the very best at Worlds.

STATEWIDE The first week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week. Students, parents, and school districts around the country take the week to celebrate the achievements of teachers, especially on National Teacher Appreciation Day, which falls on May 3 this year. Teaching is a challenging, timeconsuming, and often underappreciated and underfunded profession that has a deep and powerful impact on our society. According to National Today, teaching is one of the oldest professions. The first known private teacher was Confucius in the fourth century B.C. The cultures of Ancient Greece placed great value on educating children, as did the Pilgrims in the 1600s. By the 19th century, politicians in the US

teacher, Mattye White Woodridge, wrote to politicians and educational professionals about the demand for a day to appreciate teachers. However, it wasn’t for nearly a decade until the idea was introduced to Congress by none other than Eleanor Roosevelt. In 1953, she was successful in convincing lawmakers to adopt the day.” However, Congress only recognized it for that year. Later, the National Education Association (NEA), along with its Kansas and Indiana state affiliates, lobbied Congress to create a national day celebrating teachers. Congress declared March 7, 1980, as National Teacher Day; but, again, for that year only. The NEA and its affiliates continued to observe Teacher Day on the first Tuesday in March until 1985, when the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) established Teacher See TEACHERS page 6 . . .

Sunlight at Astronomical Society May Meeting

KENNEBUNK The Astronomical Society of Northern New England (ASNNE) will hold its monthly meeting on Friday, May 6, 7:30 p.m, at The New School, 38 York Street, Kennebunk. The Business Meeting, also open to the public, commences at 7 p.m. At this meeting, ASNNE is proud to present a presentation by Jon Wallace, a self-taught

expert on solar photography. Many solar photographs are taken by using particular wavelengths of the sun’s light. The sun is mostly hydrogen and emits a deep red-spectrum line known as the hydrogen-alpha line. Photographs taken using telescopes or filters that block out all light but hydrogen-alpha can show exceptional detail. Over the past several years,

Wallace has been experimenting with various focus-stacking techniques. After seeing some amazing solar photographs made using fairly simple equipment, he decided to try focus-stacking with his old hydrogen-alpha personal solar telescope (PST). During this talk, he will review some of the features of the sun he is interested in capturing, and then share the techniques he currently uses to make those images. Wallace will discuss his telescope and camera, the focusstacking and post-processing techniques, and will demonstrate through video clips the major steps involved in making a final composite image. Wallace was an awardwinning high school science teacher in Meriden, CT, for over 32 years. He is past president of the Connecticut Association of Physics Teachers and was an instructor in Wesleyan University’s Project ASTRO program. He has managed the Naugatuck Valley Community College observatory and has run many astronomy

. . . TEACHERS from page 1 Appreciation Week in the first full week of May. Much of what teachers do happens behind the scenes, before and after regular school hours. Alecia Betz of writes, “Many people don’t realize the amount of time and heart teachers put into their careers. It’s a fulfilling and rewarding, yet often thankless and tiring job. The financial toll takes a lot on teachers as well. A recent study by the National Center of Education Statistics found that 94 percent of teachers spend their own money on their classroom. Paying outof-pocket for necessary supplies is something people in most traditional occupations would never be asked nor expected to do. In many states, a teacher’s salary starts at or below $30,000 a year. This is lower than the average salary of those with only a high school diploma. [Salary. com reports that, as of March 29 of this year, the average public school teacher salary in Maine is $58,716.] “Teachers are really good at hiding all the work they do behind the scenes.

dent’s perspective, everything is magically organized and ready to go at the beginning of the day. Classrooms are decorated. Name tags are laminated and carefully placed. Crafts are prepared. Supplies are organized. Class pets are fed and taken care of. Seating charts are strategically arranged. Lessons are planned. Handouts are copied. Tests are created and modified for students with special needs. Essays are graded. Teachers are smiling and ready to tackle the day.” In recognition of the week, the Maine Department of Education will be posting shout-outs to past and present Maine educators who have made a difference in their lives and the lives of the people around them on its social media pages. Among local schools, the Kennebunk Elementary PTA has set up a “thank you” banner in the gathering area of the school. According to Jen Hass, “Each of the classroom teachers will bring their students by on Monday to leave a little mark to show their thanks. It is a wonderful way for our kids to show appreciation and gratitude for all the hard work done by our teachers and staff year round.”

~ Arts & Entertainment ~ “Sea of Stories” – An Interactive Exhibit at Brick Store Museum KENNEBUNK Step into Kennebunk’s past through the “audio time machine” in the second-f loor galleries at the Brick Store Museum. The exhibit, titled “Sea of Stories: History Through Art and Archives,” is now open and will run through December. Museum staff paired historic portraits and paintings from the museum’s permanent collection – many of which are rarely on display – with archival documents, such as letters and diaries, written by the portrait subjects to allow visitors a peek inside the minds of historic townspeople. Volunteers from the Kennebunk community recorded audio performances of the documents. When visitors use their smart phone (or a similar device loaned by the museum) and aim the camera at the accompanying QR code, the experiences and emotions related to the images and objects come to life. For over 85 years, the Brick Store Museum has endeavored to collect, protect, and share individual and community stories.

SEACOAST Captain LeCain W. Smith, known to his friends as Captain Lee, grew up by Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. He started sailing out of the cove as a child and ran away to sea in his early twenties. In addition to teaching sailing, marine weather, and navigation, his skills in marine trades grew to include building, repairing, surveying, delivering, and chartering sailboats in southern Maine, Key West, FL, and Port Townsend, WA. He is also a

were definitely worth sharing. Since LeCain had produced “Far Away,” a documentary video about the South Pacific part of their voyage, Chowder decided to tell her own version of the complete story with a trilogy of books that include “Sailing South ‘til the Butter Melts,” “Far Away Islands of Paradise,” and “Westward Beyond the Horizon” (the final book will be released this May). Each book covers about two years of the voyage. In the first book, Chowder reveals how she left her home

on land and got her sea legs onboard a sailboat that Lee had built. While they sail down the west coast of the Americas to the enchanted islands of the Galapagos, she shares how she handles each experience and adapts to a variety of situations. In the second book, Chowder finds herself venturing out on long ocean crossings through the South Pacific. With these crossings sometimes lasting over two weeks between landfalls at remote tropical islands, like the magical Easter Island, Chowder learns what it’s really like to be an able-bodied ocean sailing sea cat. At the start of the last book in the series, Chowder finds herself in Australia, a continent full of crocodiles, kangaroos, and aborigines. Chowder presumes she is capable of handling everything. However, when sailing around the world for six years, there are always more surprises in store for an exploring sea cat, especially when the unexpected is bound to happen. As an educational series

~ Arts & Entertainment ~ Birding Backpacks Coming to a Library Near You! YORK COUNTY York County Audubon (YCA) has established a birding backpack program that donates complete birding kits to local libraries. After a successful trial at the Kennebunk Free Library, YCA is now engaged in an effort to make these available to libraries throughout York County. This project is in memory of one of YCA’s dearest friends and colleagues, Pat Moynahan. She was a treasure of the Maine birding community and so much more; as rare a bird as any she ever found in the field. She served on the YCA Board of Directors for 25 years. YCA is honored to announce that the many donations it received in Pat’s memory will be dedicated to supporting the birding backpack program. Bird watching is for everyone, and people of all ages and abilities can enjoy looking at

birds. People can bird in their backyard, in the woods, at the beach, or anywhere birds are seen. They can bird with family, friends, or by themselves. They can learn to identify the birds they see and keep a “life list,” or just enjoy watching bird behavior. Each backpack contains everything needed to enjoy birding, whether a person is a begin-

ner, an avid birder, or just interested in the natural world. The kit includes binoculars to get a close look at the birds; birding guides from beginner to expert to help identify the birds; birding checklists for children and adults to keep track of the birds they see; documentation on how to use binoculars and where to look for birds and get more information; and maps of local land trusts and trails that are full of birds. The following Libraries now have birding backpacks: McArthur Public Library in Biddeford, Kennebunk Free Library, D.A. Hurd Library in North Berwick, Dyer Library in Saco, Louis B. Goodall Memorial Library in Sanford, and Waterboro Public Library. Patrons of these libraries or in their borrowing network can take advantage of this program. For more information, visit www.

OMAA’s Opens with New Vestibule OGUNQUIT Og u nquit Museum of American Art (OMAA) will open the 2022 season on May 1 with a full slate of new exhibitions, programs, and a newly renovated space. Members are invited to celebrate the opening with a reception on Saturday, April 30, 5-7 p.m. The museum will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through October 31. OMAA members are excited this year about the construction of a new ADA-compliant vestibule in the rear of the building. This vestibule, overlooking William Zorach’s bronze bust “Victory,” makes the museum more accessible, and features increased environmental controls crucial for the preservation of the museum’s collection. Also important to the security and preservation of the museum’s collection is replacing the glass curtain wall in the Leary Gallery. Currently, thick panes of signature glass are traveling

~ Arts & Entertainment ~ An Evening with Maine Plein Air Painter Tim Wilson

Martel’s Mousam Exhibit

KENNEBUNK The Kennebunk Free Library announces its May exhibition, “Elvers at the Mousam River,” featuring the pastels of Kennebunk resident Leo A. Martel. The exhibit will be shown Monday, May 2, through

Basement Waterproofing Basement Structural Repairs Basement Sump Pumps Basement Humidity & Mold Control ...and Nasty Crawl Spaces too!


Tuesday, May 31. Martel has no formal artist training, but was intrigued by elver (baby eel) fishing he saw along the Mousam River and took many photographs of the fisherman at work. He later turned the photos into lively pastels that capture this unique industry. The artist explains, “What started as merely a series of pastels depicting various stages of the elver harvesting season has grown into a real-life experience. Each pastel has a plaque next to it relating to a different fact or anecdote about the harvesting. The industry started back in 1970 to 1971 where one pound of eels was valued around $150 to $200, hardly worth it for all the work involved for such a short season. The value of one pound of elver in 2019 was as high as $2,500.” Martel will host a reception on Wednesday, May 4, 3-7:30 p.m. It will feature a copper model of a fyke net used by elver fisherman, and a short video of the local elver harvest that will be shown on a loop.

goes back for centuries, but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel – the precursor to the plein air easels of today – allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” the French expression for “in the open air.” Wilson, a 2008 graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (RSID) and a Maine-based painter, recently returned from a sixweek plein air painting residency in the Cotswolds. Previously, he completed a two-year project in collaboration with the Maine Coast Heritage Trust for which he traveled to remote locations by kayak to document Maine’s island coastline, recording his artistic impressions to raise awareness of these pristine and fragile areas. This collection of works, “Sojourn,” was shown at Cove St. Arts in Portland. Wilson’s surprising abstract and expressionist works have been shown locally at Corey Daniels Gallery, Sloan Merrill in Boston, Sugarlift, Florence Academy of Art and Steven Amadee in New York, Restoration Hardware. He has taught and lectured at Maine College of Art & Design, Portland Museum of Art, Southern Maine Community College, and RISD pre-college. His work has been featured in Maine Magazine, Decor Maine, Creative Maine Magazine, and, most recently, National Geographic. Cropped photo above by Greta Rybus.

Por t smout h P ro Musica will be accompanied by a five-piece string orchestra and Sam Partyka on piano. Brigette Dumont will be the featured soprano soloist. The piece was commissioned by Norway’s St. Olaf Festival and premiered at the festival in July 2016.

YORK In early December, 2021, Gary Venenga and Kasira (Mew) Pukkarungrud opened Bangkok Beach Bistro’s doors and began serving their authentic Thai cuisine to the seacoast. Prior to opening their bistro, Mew had been a nurse for 15 years before moving to the United States. More than nursing, her true passion is cooking food, and she derives great joy from cooking for others. Thai families are huge and love to eat. Every celebration in Thailand involves food, and for all those celebrations, Mew’s family wanted her

Gary and Mew’s common desire to share their love of Thai food with as many people as possible led them to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy the many scrumptious f lavors from Mew’s native country.

How to Overcome Mental Fatigue Fatigue and exhaustion are often discussed in terms that characterize the physical effects that they have on the body. However, mental fatigue can be just as draining as physical exhaustion, even if its symptoms are not as evident as achy muscles or tired feet. The online medical resource WebMD notes that mental fatigue typically arises when individuals focus on mentally challenging tasks for extended periods of time. Many individuals also experienced mental fatigue during the pandemic. Pandemic-related restrictions forced individuals across the globe to confront a number of unforeseen, unexpected challenges, including a sudden shift to remote work and school closures that forced working parents to juggle the rigors of their careers with the difficulties of remote learning. That upheaval contributed to prolonged mental fatigue for many individuals. Much like athletes need routine breaks from exercise to let their muscles recover, individuals need to look for ways to give their overworked minds a chance to recuperate from fatigue. Each

person is different, but these strategies can help people overcome mental fatigue. Take breaks from the news. Overconsumption of news is one potential contributor to mental fatigue. That’s especially so in the digital age, when the latest headlines are never further than a smartphone away. The Johns Hopkins Women’s Mood Disorders Center notes that limiting news consumption during stressful times can be an effective way to reduce symptoms of stress, including mental fatigue. Schedule time to relax. The pressure to feel as if you should always be doing something, whether it’s working, taking care of your family or tackling a to-do list around the house, can contribute to mental fatigue. Schedule time to relax and make a concerted effort to keep that time open. Avoid using scheduled relaxation time to work on household chores or check work emails. Instead, use this time to do something you find genuinely relaxing, even if that activity feels like you’re doing “nothing.” Spot the signs of mental

fatigue. Another way to overcome mental fatigue is to learn to recognize its symptoms. Recognition of these symptoms allows individuals to use them as alarm bells that alert them when it’s time to take a step back and unwind. WebMD notes that mental fatigue symptoms include mood-related issues like increased irritability or anger; difficulty concentrating that makes it hard to finish tasks; zoning out; difficulty sleeping; and engaging in unhealthy behaviors, including overconsumption of alcohol. The signs of mental fatigue may not be as instantly recognizable as the symptoms of physical exhaustion. But mental fatigue can be just as dangerous as physical tiredness if left unchecked The Weekly Sentinel does not endorse any products or services suggested by third-party sources.

Health & Fitness Maine Bird Flu Advisory STATEWIDE Due to multiple detections of highly pathogenic avian inf luenza (HPAI) in Maine and other parts of New England, Maine Animal Health Officials recently announced an advisory recommending cancellation or postponement of competitions, exhibitions,

shows, swaps, or other in-person events encouraging the gathering or comingling of domestic fowl or poultry. The advisory reads: The risk for Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) remains high, and bird owners are advised to keep birds indoors to prevent the spread of this disease. The

What To Know About Nerve Injuries The human body is a complex marvel. Various systems within the body work together to make life as humans know it possible, and though these systems are resilient, they’re not invulnerable to injury. The nervous system is a fascinating part of the human body that includes the brain, the spinal cord and nerves. This system controls much of what the body does, so it’s no surprise that nerve injuries can have a profound effect on individuals’ daily lives. What do peripheral nerves do? Johns Hopkins Medicine notes that peripheral nerves send messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. This is done through a network of 43 pairs of motor and sensory nerves that control the functions of sensation, movement and motor coordination. Are peripheral nerves vulnerable to injury? Peripheral nerves are fragile and easily damaged, so they are vulnerable to injury. Serious injury or trauma may require surgery, and the grade of severity, which can be determined using the Sunderland scale, will help doctors determine a treatment plan. The Mayo Clinic emphasizes the importance of seeking immediate treatment for peripheral nerve injuries, as doing so can prevent complications and permanent nerve damage. What causes peripheral nerve injuries? Johns Hopkins Medicine indicates that peripheral nerve injuries can occur after suffering a laceration (a cut or tear in the nerve tissue), severe bruising, stretching, electrical injury, or drug injection injury. Gunshot wounds also can cause peripheral nerve injuries. Whar are the symptoms of peripheral nerve injuries? The Mayo Clinic notes that symptoms of peripheral nerve injuries, including pain, range from mild to severe. Severe

symptoms can seriously limit individuals’ ability to perform and engage in daily activities. Symptoms differ depending on which nerve fibers are affected. Motor nerves regulate all the muscles under conscious control, helping people to walk, speak and hold objects. Sensory nerves relay information about touch, temperature and pain, while autonomic See NERVES page 27 . . .

trends observed with past North American HPAI outbreaks are that we often see a reprieve in the summer months. This is because summer is when the virus present on the landscape (outdoors) is degraded by sunlight and heat. Animal health officials from the six New England states recommend that all competitions, exhibitions, shows, swaps, or other in-person events encouraging the gathering or comingling of domestic fowl or poultry be postponed until July 1, 2022, or later. “The best way to prevent spread of HPAI from infected poultry to healthy poultry is to avoid unnecessary mixing of groups of domestic birds,” said Maine State Veterinarian Dr. Michele Walsh. “With the risk of HPAI considered high in Maine, we are confident that a smart tactic to control the spread of HPAI is to recommend cancelling or postponing poultry events through July 1, 2022, and re-evaluating the HPAI threat to domestic poultry and pet birds at

that time.” For a complete snapshot of HPAI in Maine, the state’s response, a list of frequently asked questions, and additional HPAI resources, visit dacf/hpai. To report sick poultry

or unusual domestic bird deaths, call the USDA’s toll-free sickbird hotline at 1-866-536-7593. To report a strange-acting or dead wild bird, call the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife at 207-287-8000.

~ Ask The Computer Pro ~

Dear Computer Pro, I bought a new wireless mouse, and the little arrow moves so slow it is driving me crazy! How can I make the arrow move around the screen faster? I’m on Windows 11. Thanks, Kenny

Dear Computer Pro, I bought a new desktop, and the mouse and keyboard that came with are both hard wired USB connections. I would prefer a wireless keyboard and mouse. Could you recommend a good set? Thanks, Sharon

Dear Kenny, The setting you are looking for is called “Mouse pointer speed.” Press the Windows key on your keyboard (typically a key or two left of the spacebar) and start typing “mouse.” Click on “Mouse settings” in the left column under “Best match.” Here you should see a slider titled “Mouse pointer speed” that you need to slide to the right to make your mouse respond faster. If that does not fix it or it does not help enough, look at the documentation for your mouse and see if there is a button on the mouse to change the DPI settings. If so, experiment by pressing that button once and seeing how you like it. Continue pressing the button until you find a setting that works for you. Good luck! Matt

Dear Sharon, I tend to prefer the Logitech brand because they tend to hold up for quite a while, and they have excellent battery life if you use good batteries. They also use a single USB receiver (dongle) for both devices, so that saves a USB port. The two models that I recommend are the MK270 combo (w w w. a m z n .t o/3 v P y e L L) and the MK570 (www.amzn. to/38qldA2). The MK270 is a great basic and budget-friendly wireless keyboard-and-mouse combo that will last the life of your computer. The MK570 is a bit more expensive, but you get a much more ergonomic feel across both keyboard and mouse. If you are on your computer for several hours a day, I would recommend the MK570, as it is much more

comfortable in my opinion. Good luck! Matt Dear Computer Pro, My son is graduating high school this year and I would like to get him a laptop for college. What do you recommend? Thanks, Randy Dear Randy, This would really depend on what your son likes to do on his laptop. If he likes to play games, then you are going to need to look at a Windows based gaming laptop like the Razer Blade 15 (www.amzn. to/3ODgls2). This little machine packs quite a punch with the latest generation Intel processor and a solid graphics card. If he is a heavy gamer, you could step up to the best mobile graphics card in the same laptop (www.amzn. to/36V8RQc), but it will cost you. Unless your child is going into an engineering program, where they typically require Microsoft Windows based laptops, you just must ask whether he prefers a laptop based on Microsoft Windows or Apple MacOS and go from there. On the Windows side, there are so many options that it is hard to say what would be best. If he likes portable, the Dell XPS 13 ( is a great balance between power and portability. If he likes something a little bigger, the Lenovo ThinkPad P15s (www.amzn. to/3LogugM) may be a good fit. A more budget-friendly option would be a Lenovo ThinkPad

E15 ( These are the laptops that I recommend to all my business users because they are just workhorses that will last several years with minimal problems. If your son would prefer a MacBook, there are a few options there, too. The biggest bang for the buck is a MacBook Air with Apple’s new M1 chip ( These little machines are amazing! If he needs more power or more ports, you can’t go wrong with the MacBook Pro 14 (www. or its big brother the MacBook Pro 16 ( If he does anything with music, photography, or video production, I recommend one of the MacBook Pros just because of the additional horsepower. Good luck on your search and good luck to your son as he starts this next chapter in his life! Matt Dear Computer Pro, I have a laptop that is several years old that has started to run slow and has a spot on the screen that is defective. I have read that an SSD drive would speed up my computer significantly, but I am not sure it is worth investing in this old one or if I should just buy a new one. What are your thoughts? Thanks, Sheila Dear Sheila, We get asked this same question at least once a day, and it is a tough one to answer without knowing more about your current computer and how you

use it; but I will try to give you some things to think about. First, if it is several years old, replacing the screen will, most likely, be very affordable. However, if it is too many years old, it may be difficult to source. Second, while the SSD will improve the overall speed of your system versus an existing and aging HDD, depending on how old your system is, it may not be able to benefit from the performance gain enough to make it worth it. For example, if you only have 4GB of memory and an old first- or second-generation Intel processor, no matter what you do it is still not going to hold a candle to a new machine. Let’s say your laptop is only about five years old. At this age I could argue in either direction. What I typically tell folks is that, if it has been working well for you all along and you have all your programs setup just the way you like, then upgrading it with some more RAM and cloning the HDD to an SSD is probably going to be the best bet. If you just use it for stuff like Microsoft Office, email, and web browsing, and buying a new computer does not scare you, I would recommend burying the old one and getting a new one that you’ll get another 3-5 years out of. Good luck! Matt Interested in learning more? Matt Gallant is owner of Oasis IT in South Berwick. Please email him questions at questions@ or visit

STATEWIDE Governor Janet Mills recently announced the launch of a $39.6 million grant program from her Maine Jobs and Recovery Plan to help Maine technology companies recover from the pandemic, invest in new products and business lines, attract new customers, and create longterm economic growth. The Pandemic Recovery for an Innovative Maine Economy (PRIME) Fund, administered by the Maine Technology Institute (MTI), will focus its investments

on businesses in the state’s targeted technology sectors, which include biotech, composites and advanced materials, forestry and agriculture, marine industries, precision manufacturing, and more. By targeting these sectors, the PRIME Fund aims to accelerate job creation and reach businesses that did not, or were unable to, access other federal pandemic-response economic support programs. Spurring investment in innovative companies is also recommended by the state’s ten-year economic

st rateg y and t he Governor’s Economic Recovery Committee to make Maine more competitive against other states. The PRIME Fund will award grants in two phases. Phase 1, open now, is focused on direct support to businesses who suffered negative impacts from the pandemic. MTI estimates that these awards will range from $49,000 to $400,000, depending upon the size and employment base of the applicants. Phase 2 will target public-private partnerships that support and bolster Maine’s innovation economy and is expected to launch this summer. Companies may apply for PRIME funds through May 19.

Jane S. Fenderson, 90 WELLS – Jane S. Fenderson passed away at her home in Wells, ME, surrounded by family on March 29, 2022. Jane was born in Binghamton, NY, on April 6, 1931, the daughter of Martin J. and Pauline Kane. Jane attended Binghamton schools and Georgetown University in Washington, DC. In 1954, Jane joined the US Foreign Service, assigned to the American Embassy in Tokyo, Japan, Voice of America program. During her seven-year tenure with the Foreign Service,

Jane was assigned to embassies in Hong Kong; Rangoon, Burma; and Ottawa, Canada. In 1961 she joined the staff of Raytheon Company in New York City. Jane met her husband, George “Larry” Fenderson, in 1956 while on a cruise to the US traveling from Asia. Their paths took them in opposite directions, and they were unexpectedly reunited in 1961 in New York City. They married in May 1964. Jane was an avid traveler, having lived in or visited over 100 countries of the world. She truly loved the adventure of travel, and to explore what the world offered. Jane and Larry moved to Wells in 1972 and established a travel agency in York. Jane continued to travel and enjoy her work at Village Travel Center well into her eighties. Larry predeceased Jane in March 2015, after 50 memorable years together.

~ Pets ~ Safe Haven Humane Society WELLS Meet Bast. She has had a confusing and insecure life. Thankfully, it has been blessed with compassion. She lost her home when her owner passed away. A thoughtful, kind woman took her in and gave her the best care she could, along with the other animals she had rescued from similar situations. Being realistic and unselfish, this woman sought placement for the animals she rescued so they would have the best chance at a healthy and happy life. When Bast moved into the Safe Haven shelter, it was her third major life-change in her three years of life. This kind of upheaval causes insecurity, especially if a kitty is shy. It can be a huge, lifelong emotional block. But Bast

has persevered and is showing trust, thanks to the tranquil and loving environment our volunteers provide our rescues. Bast is petite, with medium white hair and dark gray patches on her back and long fluffy tail. She will be spayed this week and will be available for adoption once recovered. Socially, Bast is on her

way. She can be picked up and patted. She shows no aggression, only a shy reserve due to her unsettled past. Safe Haven is seeking a good home for her. She deserves her very own family and secure environment for the rest of her long life. All she needs is love and familiarity in a quiet, secure setting. She’d be fine as an “only kitty” if she gets lots of playtime and attention from her family. She may also do well living with a calm, non-threatening kitty or gentle dog. Bast shows all the promise of being a wonderful family member, and we hope you’ll consider her for yours. For more information, call 207-646-1611. Last Saturday, someone dumped a load of furniture in our shelter parking lot. This is not a help, just a big hassle for us. We do not have the manpower, trucks, or space to store unwanted items.

. . . LESSWING from page 23 on April 14, 2022, at St. Ann Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Dover, NH. He was born in Buffalo, NY, on January 9, 1932, to Theresa Stocker Lesswing and Frederick Edward Lesswing. He graduated from Buffalo State Teachers College, now a part of the University of New York. After graduation, Fred enrolled in the US Navy and was sent to Officer Candidate School, followed by four years on active duty during the Korean Conflict. He then spent 20 years in the USNR and was very proud of serving his country. He held a career in management with General Electric from 1957 until leaving the company in 1970 to buy the N.G. Marshall Hardware store in York. Fred met his wife, Rosemarie, in 1957, at General Electric in Schenectady, NY. Together they moved with GE through numerous positions and advancements in New York, Illinois, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, until two wonderful vacations in York Beach led them to decide to permanently make their home on the coast of Maine.


During Fred’s years of running what became Lesswing Hardware & Home Center on Long Sands Road in York, he was also involved in the York School District and played a large role in the construction of York High School in 1977. His passion, however, became Lesswing’s basketball team when approached to sponsor it in 1975. He did, on the condition that they win their first season. Lesswing’s won that season and became the 1975 Class B champions in the Seacoast area. In 1982, Fred sold Lesswing Hardware & Home Center to his major distributor, Emery-Waterhouse, in Portland, ME, and, in 1983, the family moved to St. Augustine, FL. He then accepted a job at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine as their Business Manager. In 1994 he suffered a major heart attack and retired later that year. In 1995 Fred and Rosemarie returned to Cape Neddick, ME. Fred was predeceased by his parents; his sister, Jean (Robert) Walker, of Philadelphia, PA; and his son, Eric Anthony Lesswing and daughter-in-law, Ana (Frederick M.) Lesswing. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Rosemarie Perrella Lesswing; his brother, Robert (Joanne)

Linda J. Petruzzelli, 65 WELLS – Linda J. Petruzzelli, of Wells, passed away peacefully on April 23, 2022,

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

125 Old Post Rd., Kittery, ME 207-439-4900

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.

after a battle with cancer. She was the devoted wife to James A. Martin and loving mother to Melissa L. McKennon. Linda was born on September 21, 1956, and was pre-deceased by her parents, Elizabeth J. Barsoian and Richard Petruzzelli. She was a former resident of Burlington, MA, and Arlington, MA, and was a 1975 graduate of Arlington High School. In 2004 Linda moved to Maine and started her own business, Yours, Mine and Ours Family Daycare. There she would care for many infants and children whom she loved dearly along with their families. The bond they shared was like no other. Linda had such a kind, loving, and giving heart. She lived every day to the fullest and had such a love for life. She loved the beach, shopping, going out to eat, taking rides in her car listening to music, or taking her dogs Tucker and Shady to the marina for a walk. Linda will be missed greatly by all who knew her. Along with her husband, James A. Martin, and daughter, Melissa L. McKennon, she leaves behind her step-daughters, Janessa and Leanne Martin; and siblings, Lynne Walters, Michael Barsoian, Carol Edwards Woodman, Jeff Barsoian, Betty Barsoian, and the late Marie Mayhew; as well as extended family and friends. Linda’s life will be celebrated with family and friends on Saturday, April 30, 2022, 1-4 p.m., at Bibber Memorial Chapel, 111 Chapel Road, Wells ME 04090.

Joseph Michael Thompson, 49 NORT H BERW ICK – Joseph Michael Thompson, known and loved as Mickey, of Sunset Avenue in North Berwick, passed away April 21, 2022, in Dover, NH, after a recent cancer diagnosis. Mickey was born in Meriden, CT, August 13, 1972, the son of Bonnie J. Leslie and Earl Thompson. He grew up in North Berwick and was the grandson of Frank (Duney) and Barbara Leslie. Mickey was a 1990 graduate of Noble High School, where he made life-long friends and participated in many sports activities. He earned his associate degree in 1992 from Cazenovia College before moving to California in 1995 to work in the entertainment business. Mickey was a first-class entertainer, so it comes as no surprise that he would find his career at 20th-Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, and, most recently, NBC Universal. Mickey loved his career, but missed his family and home, returning to his roots in 2018 to care for his mom, the center of his world. He was a huge music and movie buff with thousands of movies in his collection. Mickey loved all New England sports, especially the New England Patriots, screaming at the screen during any game that was on. Mickey’s smile and laugh were infectious, and his quick wit and humor were the center of all gatherings. He lit up the room the moment he walked through the door. Mickey was louder See THOMPSON page 27 . . .

. . . THOMPSON from page 24 than life with the personality to match. He never allowed any adversities to overcome him. Mickey was also humble and never realized just how many lives he touched from Maine to California. He is what we call a “true” friend. He always made time for his “mates.” He was a phone call away, and his door was open for anyone who wanted to watch a game, a good movie, share a good laugh, a hug, a big shoulder to lean on, or a joke and a warm Jack. Mickey was always there. His light and life can never be replaced but will be sorely missed and remembered by so many folks in his life, especially those in his inner circle. Mickey has traveled beyond the sunset to see his mom, Bonnie Leslie, who passed away in August of 2021, and his grandparents, who were there for him throughout his entire life. He leaves a warmth in the hearts of all those who knew and loved him, even those who were lucky enough to have just met him. “Rest easy, Mate.” A time of visitation will be held Friday, April 29, 2022, 1-2:30 p.m., at the Johnson Funeral Home, 26 Market Street, North Berwick, ME, immediately followed by a memorial service at 2:30. Interment will follow in the Hillside Cemetery, North Berwick, where he will be laid to rest with his loved ones. A fund to help children who want to play sports but may not be able to afford it is being set up in Mickey’s name. Donations may be mailed to North Berwick Parks & Rec, c/o Kaylyn Bell, P.O. Box 422, North Berwick, ME 03906. A r rangements a re entrusted to the Johnson Funeral Home, North Berwick, ME. Condolences, memories, and pictures may be shared at www.

. . . NERVES from page 17 nerves regulate activities that are not consciously controlled, such as breathing, heart function and digestion. Since these functions are so different, it’s no surprise that injuries to each type of nerve produce different symptoms. Motor ner ves: Muscle weakness, uncontrollable muscle twitching and painful cramps are characteristics of motor nerve injuries. Sensory nerves: Sensory nerve injury symptoms may include numbness, tingling in the hands or feet and difficulty sensing pain or changes in temperature. Individuals also may experience difficulty walking, maintaining their balance with their eyes closed or fastening buttons. Autonomic nerves: Excessive sweating, changes in blood pressure, an inability to tolerate heat, and gastrointestinal issues are potential indicators of autonomic nerve injuries.
