Dear Sun Spots: At the 4:30 Mass at the Basilica, I lost a pearl cross on a silver chain carved in Jerusalem, blessed by Msgr. Rene Mathieu in Caribou, Maine. I write to ask if Sun Spots could locate a business in Maine or elsewhere which sells hand-carved items from Jerusalem?

Thank you very much for your attention to my request. – Joanna, Lewiston.

Answer: In addition to responses from readers, contact The Dove at 906 Sabattus St., Lewiston, at 777-7155. They did sell crosses carved in Jerusalem, but don’t at this time. However, they would be happy to get this for you through a special order.

Dear Sun Spots: The Lewiston-Auburn Night Lions Club is collecting printer and copier cartridges for recycling. This is a fundraiser we plan on doing year round. We will collect all the major brands.

Single cartridges can be dropped off into our eyeglasses collection boxes, those with large quantities can call Paul Chabot at 998-2575 or Paul Branagan at 783-0386 to arrange for pick up. The money we receive will go towards providing eye glasses to people who cannot afford them.

With this economy there is a big need for providing eye care in Lewiston, Auburn and surrounding towns. Lewiston-Auburn Night Lions Club members thank the citizens of Lewiston and Auburn for their help. Thank you. – Paul Chabot, Poland.
