Dear Sun Spots: Thank you for all your great information. I do
not have a computer, so could you find me the address for Tom Caron? He
works for NESN as a sports analyst. The NESN studio is somewhere in
Massachusetts. Thank you for this address in advance. — No Name, No
Town.

Answer: Consider contacting Caron in the care of
New England Sports Network Ltd., 480 Arsenal St., Building No. 1,
Watertown, Mass. 02472, 617-536-9233.

Fans of Caron might also be
interested in a little more information about him, which he supplied
for Sun Spots in a previous column: Caron is a Lewiston native and a
1986 graduate of Saint Michael’s College in Vermont, where he majored in
journalism. He started off with a small newspaper in Vermont covering
the Vermont Reds, Cincinnati’s AA affiliate. He also spent five years
with WGME 13 in Portland as a sports anchor. Caron also wrote
frequently for the Sun Journal. He is married to his wife, Kelly, and
has two sons Jack and Robbie.

The benefit baked bean supper, dance and Chinese auction for Mark Hume will be held on Saturday, Aug. 22 at the BQMC, Route 219 in North Turner. The location was missing from a letter in Monday’s Sun Spots column. Call Joyce at 225-3886 for more information.

Dear Sun Spots: The Blueberry Festival 2009 was a great success this year. This can only happen with the help of firefighters, the highway department, rec department, police, medics, civic groups, businesses, newspapers, crafters, vendors, churches, Nichols Expo, volunteers, and last of all Mother Nature. Special thanks to all above and those of you who just stepped in to help where needed.

We would like to thank Kora Temple units for coming to entertain the public. They will be back in 2010. Special thanks to Friends of Wilson Lake for trying to give rides, the fun race and 10K staff for the races, Farmington Emblem Club 460, the entertainment, everyone that was in the three wonderful parades and the people that made the festival a success.

We had the best Friday attendance since the festival started. We had many local, out of town and state visitors at the fireworks on Saturday night. The start went much faster because of the weather. The fireworks needed to be tested because of the smoke and wind effect, which is a safety issue to the spectators such as you. Then we were off.

If anyone would like to donate for the Aug. 6 and 7, 2010 celebration, it is never too early or late. The theme will be “Summertime in Maine.” Again, I would like to thank everyone for their participation. No job goes unnoticed. — Shannon Smith, Blueberry Festival Chairwoman.

Dear Sun Spots: We have an old picture in a beautiful frame made by Pine Tree Framing, Distinctive Custom Framing, Jay, Maine. I would like to know when it was made and who was the owner of this framing business. — Susan, Livermore.

Answer: Dorothy White from the Jay Historical Society didn’t recall that particular business and kindly checked with other community members for Sun Spots. They also weren’t aware of a business by that name. Perhaps a reader will have information for you and contact the column.

Dear Sun Spots: This is just a reminder to all the people who have been enjoying the garage sales Friday and Saturday for Loaves & Fishes located at 61 Lisbon Rd in Sabattus. We will continue to be open every Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. We will continue this schedule for the remainder of the summer. The scheduled time for the end of the garage sales will be the second week in October, which at that time the garage sales will end.

I would also like to thank the supporters who donated items and those who purchased them. If you have a delivery of items, feel free to come in Friday and Saturday during the time frame of 9 to 1. And remember, the items change often. So, please stop in and see what we have. Any questions, please call Katherine Irazzary at 212-7674. Thank you. — Katherine Irazzary, Sabattus.
