Due to drought conditions statewide, Maine Forest Service has halted issuing online open burning permits until further notice and urges Maine's fire chiefs and town forest fire wardens to use extreme caution or suspend the issuance of written open burning brush permits. As conditions ease, permitting will resume as normal. Maine Forest Service reminds everyone that even expertly built fires can quickly get out of control in these extreme conditions and threaten lives, private property, and our precious forests.

Local boaters beware...the boat launches on Lake Arrowhead will be closed on Oct. 5 for about a week to install water main pipes across the lake. The levels will start dropping down 2 feet starting on Oct. 1 and boaters are being asked to use extreme caution and refrain from using the lake during this time. The lake levels should be raised back up to normal levels after the work is completed.

CMP Responding to Outages Caused by Isaias

AUGUSTA, ME— August 4 – Central Maine Power (CMP) is responding to outages this evening caused by winds from Tropical Storm Isaias. ‪At 9:30 PM‬ the company reported over 75,000 outages with York and Cumberland Counties having the highest numbers, over 20,000 each. CMP crews are working with County and local Emergency Management officials to clear roads as needed, assessing damage and repairing and restoring.
“Our crews are out, ensuring roads and communities are safe and assessing damage. We expect the wind to die down early in the morning, enabling us to focus on restoration and to work more quickly,” said David Flanagan, Executive Board Chair of CMP. “We are fortunate to have the assistance of the contractors from New Brunswick as all utilities and contractors south of Maine are engaged in this storm.”
Severe wind gusts may prevent workers from going up in buckets; CMP prioritizes the safety of all employees and contractors.
In addition to about 100 CMP crews, the company has approximately 90 contracted lineworkers, including 20 from New Brunswick, Canada, and 100 tree crews responding to the outages.
CMP crews and contractors are also adhering to COVID-19 protocols that include appropriate social distancing practices for field employees and contractors including:
• Working in separate teams to minimize contact
• Restricting visitor access to company facilities
• Entering a customer residence only in the event of emergency and after assessing risk
• Maintaining appropriate social distancing in the field
• Allowing one employee per vehicle
• Wearing masks as situations require
Customers may use online tools, accessible at www.cmpco.com to report and monitor outages.

If you lose service:
· To report an outage, visit Outage Central at cmpco.com. Customers may also report an outage using CMP’s 24/7 automated phone system at ‪800.696.1000‬.
· Keep sensitive electronic appliances such as computers, TVs and stereos plugged into a surge protector, or unplug them. They could be damaged if a power surge occurs when electricity is restored.
· Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed. For information about food safety, visit http://www.foodsafety.gov/keep/charts/refridg_food.html.

For customers with generators:
· Hire a licensed electrician to install permanent generators and transfer switches.
· Properly ground all portable generators.
· Carefully read and observe all instructions in your generator’s operating manual.
· Never run a generator indoors, or even in an open garage.
· If your carbon monoxide detector goes off – get out of the building immediately and call ‪911‬.
· Do not store fuel indoors or try to refuel a generator while it’s running.

I'd never heard of "The Reporter" until Four Hearts Farm (love their goat cheese!) posted the latest issue on their page. We moved to the area full-time (finally!) last November and are always looking for things to do, places to visit, restaurants, etc. Never heard about the Mama Mia Dinners...or Grindstone Woodfire Bakery and Café...or so many other places you covered in just this issue! Is there any way for me to share just an article with others? In the meantime, I'll be following you! Thanks!
I want to thank people within Waterboro and the surrounding communities that have assisted myself, my children, children I was guardian to and my mother Caroline. Life hasn’t been easy. Yet as a mom and daughter; I still hang strong. I am at Lahey Clinic a lot since February 2019 for treatment for medical issues. The people who assist and have assisted my family have been great and I wanted to say I am proud to be a resident and homeowner in Waterboro Maine.

On September 4, 2018, we lost this amazing man after his year long battle with pancreatic cancer. To honor his memory, a benefit is being held on June 15th, with all proceeds going to The Purple Iris Foundation, a Maine based Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Organization. I'm hoping to reach out to as many of Tom's 1986 Massebesic classmates as possible, so please share this event link.
