On Wednesday, Dec. 20 I retrieved my mail, a copy of the PCH newspaper and an envelope from Sen. Kathleen Vinehout. I opened the letter and read "Thank you for contacting me to express your views on an Article V Convention." This shocked me, because I wrote to the senator several years ago. My first thought was "Better late than never, but why now, after all these years?" My question was answered when I next checked the front page of the Herald. "Vinehout touts background in crowded Democratic field." I once was blind, but now I see.

Students in kindergarten through fifth grade at St. Francis Catholic School in Ellsworth performed "O Little Christmas Town" for family and friends beginning with the dress rehearsal Dec. 13 and performance Dec. 14. Children sang and told the story of the Nativity including the travels of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, angels appearing to shepherds, the birth of Jesus, and followers seeking him by way of a bright star.
Four sheets of plywood, a dozen 2-by-4s, some scruffy shake shingles and ten bales of straw; that's all we needed to make a life-size nativity shed. We touched it off with a couple spotlights, a boom box for Christmas CDs and a few cables to keep it all standing when the wind blew. Every night for a week or so we volunteers put robes over our winter coats, towels over stocking caps and headed out to the shed to wave to rush hour traffic. Mary had a bundle of cloth wrapped around a plastic baby. Joseph had a costume beard. The wind chills were near zero.
