New Fire Truck: A Good Day for Westport Island, Maine
A bridge is like a telephone: it’s a lifeline, and it brings both good news and bad news. On this Friday the 13th, it seemed to bring only good news to Westport Island.
The ospreys are back as bridge sentinals: they are working on their nest, preparing for summer. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny, Spring day. And, after lots of spirited discussion at town meetings, Westport Island has a new fire truck — which arrived this bodacious day.
Although it was a good day for the Island, we send our sympathies and thoughts to the residents of Greenland, NH, where the police chief was fatally shot today and four police officers were injured during the service of a search warrant.
