Mick Devin said his first term in the Maine House of Representatives was successful enough to warrant another go-round.
Devin, D-Newcastle, is seeking his second term in the Nov. 4 elections. He is facing Anna Morkeski, R-Damariscotta for the District 90 seat, which covers the towns of South Bristol, Bristol, Damariscotta, Newcastle, Monhegan and Edgecomb.

Here it is the first week of November and we are on the heels of the craziest, busiest time of the year. I know there will be days when even I whine "I'm too tired to cook."
That's when I make a beeline to the extra freezer in our garage (everybody puts their freezers, washers and dryers in the garage here in the south, so when in Rome) and see what goodies I've stashed in there. (Spaghetti pie is one that is always in my freezer. Talk about yummy and recipe included below!)
