Dear Sun Spots: Your column is the first article I read every day. I cut out lots of recipes and advice tips.

Now, my husband and I have a problem. A while back, we got a wall-to-wall rug and pad as a gift. The problem is finding someone to put it in for us.

If anyone is interested, please call Hank at (207) 782-4736. – No Name, No Town.


Dear Sun Spots: My grandfather Max Getchell drowned on Moosehead Lake in late May of 1953. He had been staying at Camp Caribou in Ogontz (Rockwood/Moosehead Lake). Can you find me any information about this sporting camp that is no longer in operation?

Also, can you please direct me to a source that has a record of ownership through the years of individual cottages at the Etna Spiritualist Camp in Etna, Maine? I am looking specifically for Stevens, Grant, Nealley and Getchell families, who were there in the late 1800s and early 1900s. – Jackie Stoutamyer, South Paris.
