Waterboro Public Works strikes again

Have you noticed the Dollar General Store?  Noticed the extra lane off of Route 5?  Our Public Works Department Head spent untold hours and a fair amount of money to make Dollar General put in the extra lane, and paving, and paperwork lease to the town.

The hilarious thing is he can’t plow it. He says it is not in the budget for plowing!  Think his company is making enough money this year from the PLOWING CONTRACT to plow the extra lane ? Yeah, I do too.

 He managed to get the most expensive plow contract in Waterboro history, $180,000 OVER the budgetted amount. And he can’t find the money to plow the extra lane on Chadbourne Ridge !!  He is a piece of work.

Amateur Radio –Ham Radio – General electronics – Programming – Arduino

Looking to get some of the local hams, radio people, electronic jocks, programmers together on Wednesday nights for an hour or so.

I will be drinking coffee and ready to socialize and maybe talk ham radio, or classes, or regulations, programming, building, Arduino , etc at Dunkin Donuts about 7:00 PM on Wedsnesday Nights.

Nothing formal, just a chat session, cup of coffee, hot chocolate.

Dollar General Open !!!

It was suppose to be the first of eight in the area. Instead Waterboro managed to make another new business go through a bunch of crap, and this store is almost the last of eight.

But, it is open and doing business. And they are looking for help.


Welcome to Waterboro, Dollar General !

Waste recycling, Propane tanks, Septic Waste recycling , Sewer tanks

Many are the “rumors” being spread about the land across from Dollar General.  However, the only one that has caused concerns, yells, and denials is the Propane Storage tanks.    In fact the denials has been so strong, it looks like that is what will happen on part of the land. It only needs 5 acres.

The valuable rental property was given $2500 to plant scrubs to protect the house from headlights. Nobody wants to take a bet that they will be put in !

The town is still trying to upset the whole store being finished.  He who does a lot for the town is yelling because they have to move the telephone pole to the other side of Chadbourne Ridge Road.  He is ranting and raving with CMP to prevent it. Might lower the value of that valuable rental property, which is still sitting idle for the third year.

Waterboro is a piece of work !

A Dollar General rising

Fairly fast, the Dollar General store in North Waterboro is rising. This after a long tit for tat with the Waterboro Public Works Director, better known as the Road Commissioner, or locally known as He who has done a lot for the town.  The house on the other side of the street is  valuable piece of rental property, seemingly unused for the last three years. The land across the corner is 27 acres of spec property, most likely due to have a 5 acre propane tank storage unit, plus sundry other nick knacks. Nothing serious is being planned over there.

Wright Chocolate House – Limerick

I make excuses to drive to Limerick to visit this place. Often. Friendly, easy to find, and worth the trip. If you don’t like chocolate, drive someone who does !  Course, I always leave with some of the homemade Caramels. Locally made, local ingredients, and a chocolate craft shop worth the trip.

Gneiss Beer in Limerick Maine

Always seems just right to visit a local craft beer, especially when it is in the neighboring town !

It’s small, friendly and a neat local place to visit. Not intimidating like many of the larger craft

micro brews might be. I was early and got to spend a few minutes talking. And I left with a growler. They had five different

brews in the making and/or on tap. They have many places in Portland that carry their beer, and I believe Woody’s in Waterboro

also does.  The usual tee shirts, and glasses, should you develop a likeness for them ! I might, but looks like it will take a few moe visits

to be sure.

Link is on the Links List.  Worth the visit.
