Dear Sun Spots: There was a young girl from Maine in the Star Search finals. I did not see the last show due to the war. Did she win?

What day did April 21, 1943, and Oct. 29, 1937, fall on?

Please print the words to the “Power of Love” by Celine Dion. – No Name, No Town.

Answer:
Unfortunately you do not provide a name to help Sun Spots in her search for the young Maine singer. If you have the name of the young girl you can search online at www.cbs.com/primetime/star_search/junior/020603 to see how she made out.

Regarding your second question: according to www.ayrshireroots.com/Genealogy/Reference/Day%20Born%20z.htm, April 21, 1943, fell on a Wednesday and Oct. 29, 1937, fell on a Friday.

And regarding your final question, Sun Spots hopes you enjoy these lyrics to Celine Dion’s “Power of Love” found online at www.lyricsdomain.com.



The whispers in the morning

Of lovers sleeping tight

Are rolling like thunder now

As I look in your eyes I hold on to your body

And feel each move you make

Your voice is warm and tender

A love that I could not forsake

[first chorus] ‘Cause I am your lady

And you are my man

Whenever you reach for me

I’ll do all that I can

Lost is how I’m feeling lying in your arms

When the world outside’s too

Much to take

That all ends when I’m with you

Even though there may be times

It seems I’m far away

Never wonder where I am

‘Cause I am always by your side

‘Cause I am your lady

And you are my man

Whenever you reach for me

I’ll do all that I can

[second chorus] We’re heading for something

Somewhere I’ve never been

Sometimes I am frightened

But I’m ready to learn

Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating

Made it clear

Suddenly the feeling that I can’t go on

Is light years away

‘Cause I am your lady

And you are my man

Whenever you reach for me

I’ll do all that I can

We’re heading for something

Somewhere I’ve never been

Sometimes I am frightened

But I’m ready to learn

Of the power of love

Dear Sun Spots: This letter is in reply to the May 2 column on oilcloth. I thought this might interest readers.

About 100 years ago, oilcloth was manufactured in a large mill in North Monmouth. It was shipped all over the United States. The quality of the Winthrop Oil Cloth was “super” according to stories. It was in high demand. They later built a mill in Winthrop but by then the oilcloth used in the home had changed. They then switched to making woolen cloth. The oilcloth mill was not designed for the fabric cloth. The Winthrop mill became very active. In the 1940s it became part of the Wilton Woolen Mill. The Wilton firm manufactured cloth for several years. The cloth was used for men’s and women’s garments. The cloth was shipped to the New York area – A former Sun Journal Stringer, Jay.
