Dear Sun Spots: The small community of West Paris has a renewed sense of American pride since the recent return of eight of our military men from Iraq. We are trying to erect a new veterans’ monument, since our current memorial has no room for more names and has not been updated since the Korean War. We have contacted the State Archives and the Bureau of Veterans’ Services to find a listing of the names of our men who have served since the Korean War but can only find a list that updates through the Vietnam War. Would any of your readers know of a way to obtain a more current listing? We can be reached via mail at Town of West Paris, P.O. Box 247, West Paris, ME 04289. Please mark it to the attention of Sylvia McCann. – No Name, West Paris.

Dear Sun Spots: The Knights of Columbus Council No. 13181 in Sabattus is having its annual yard sale for charity from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 23 and 24 and 8 a.m. to noon June 25. It will be held at the Maxwell Gill Hall, adjacent to Our Lady of the Rosary Church. We are asking for clean, usable donations. For pickup arrangements, phone Roland St. Amand at 375-6586 or Rodney Woodrum at 375-8839. – Sonia Woodrum, No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: You have helped me before, and I hope you can again. Did anyone out there videotape the show “Farscape,” which aired Sunday, May 28, on the UPN channel? It was the second part of the story. I am willing to pay postage or pick it up and return it. Thank you. – Anita Chandler, Monmouth.

Answer: In addition to responses from readers, Sun Spots called Maine’s UPN, which confirmed that the “Farscape” episode you are looking for was Season 2, episode 2-11. The series broadcasts on UPN Sundays at 11 p.m.
