Dear Sun Spots: I am wondering if you or any of your readers have any information relating to the former Lewiston, Maine, hockey team called the Maine Nordiques? I have the basic information about when they were in existence and the statistics, but I am looking for some more specific information. Does anyone know who owned the team? Does anyone have any Maine Nordiques memorabilia, such as programs, jerseys, even tickets from a game or know where some may be? I am also looking for some other items such as season ticket-holders list or photos from any games at the Central Maine Youth Center. Thank you. I can be reached at 1027 S. University Blvd., Denver, Colorado 80209 (soon to be Maine again) 303-883-0496 or via e-mail at [email protected] – Aaron Sasseville, Denver, Colo.

Dear Sun Spots: I was wondering if those people who receive flowers grown from bulbs like tulips, Easter lilies and others for Easter and throw them out after blooming might consider giving them to me. You can call me at (207) 783-6553 and ask for Joline. I will gladly pick them up and give them a nice place in my garden. Also, if anyone is interested in buying rhubarb plants, I will sell them a large clump for $5. One clump would make at least four to five plants. Please call me. – Joline C., Lewiston.
