An article published Tuesday on Page One about inspection stickers incorrectly stated that Sinclair Auto and Towing in Carmel had its license suspended. The station’s former mechanic was given a verbal warning.
Rodney Merritt of East Machias, one of three candidates for Washington County sheriff, believes he was misrepresented in an article in Tuesday’s paper about this evening’s debate in Lubec. He will miss it because he is assisting his father with a medical appointment. However, he has been opposed to attending the debate at all because its moderator, Arthur Glidden, a town selectman, has a campaign sign in his yard supporting Donnie Smith, another of the sheriff candidates. He also opposes the inclusion on the panel of John Leighton, a Pembroke selectman who wrote a negative letter about Merritt that was published in a local weekly newspaper last month.
