Storm’s silver lining

So, Maine people are uncharitable. So, we don’t send much money to national, statistical charities, many with CEO’s with big salaries.

We have always played it close to home, helping our neighbors, known or not; not necessasrily with dollars, but with whatever meets their needs. Our icy crisis has publicized this fact.

To save us from an undeserved bad name permanently, please get that message out to those dollar-driven folk who are not lucky enough to live here. Linda M. Throckmorton Cutler

We would like to thank the residents and businesses of Winter Harbor and the personnel at the Naval Security Group Activity in Winter Harbor for their many acts of kindness and generosity during last week’s storm. We feel that these actions, known and unknown, personify the sense of community which we have here in Winter Harbor with everyone working together for the benefit of all. We are grateful for this thoughtfulness and sense of neighbor-helping-neighbor during this period of emergency. Gerald Conners Wesley Hills Katherine Heidinger Town selectmen Winter Harbor

I spent two nights at the National Guard armory in Bangor and I want to say thanks again for the kind, considerate care that was given to all of us. The Guard boys and the Red Cross ladies did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. I truly believe Americans are at their very best when conditions are at their very worst. Christine Newcomb Brewer
