DEAR SUN SPOTS: Would you be able to find out when MPBN Channel 10 plans to air Season 5 of “Doc Martin”? Online it indicates that it was to have begun in March 2012 in this country. Thank you. — No Name via email

ANSWER: Sun Spots found the following blurb in the May 2012 programming guide. If you don’t get the programming guide in the mail, you can read it at mpbn.net.

“Doc Martin Night” begins at 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 26. Two episodes of the popular British series are followed by “Doc Martin: The Movie.” Season five, with all new episodes of “Doc Martin,” premieres in June.

If you are a big fan of the show, you can sign up for online streaming at Netflix.com and watch the seasons in order on your computer for about $8 a month.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I am having trouble getting in touch with Pogo Games. Is there any way that I can get a phone number in order to talk to a person and get my problem rectified?

On the website there is no place where one can file a complaint or get big problems fixed.

Thank you for any answer that you can get back to me with. — Annette, [email protected]

ANSWER: Finding phone numbers for this kind of company can be tough, but you can try 1-866-543-5435. Don’t be put off by the recorded voice that answers “EA.” That’s the company that owns the game.

Another option for help, is https://help.ea.com/contact-us

Also, there is a place on Pogo’s website where you can email them. Visit www.pogo.com/faq. There is a contact form as well as some troubleshooting tips and product information.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: A couple of weeks ago, I found a large piece of cardboard in my front yard on Minot Avenue. On it were a series of old family photos, a little damaged, but I thought someone might be looking for it.

The photos are of Frank Rossi, from 1925, baby Nonnie, Rosalie, etc. — Suzanne, Lewiston

ANSWER: Suzanne brought the cardboard to the Sun Journal, where it is available for pickup. If it’s yours, go to the customer service desk at 104 Park St. between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays and tell them at the front desk that the item has been stored in where the night switchboard used to be.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: In answer to Heidi from Dryden (May 28), Sister Gilberte Boisvert, who lived in my building along with Sister Jeanne (now deceased) before retiring to the mother convent in Massachusetts, is not related to Father Marc Boisvert.

She had told me about her family while living here. Her nephew Richard came here to visit her several times. He is from Raleigh, N.C. She had other relatives not from Maine that she kept in touch with.

She also had a large very well organized stamp collection that she showed me. As far as I know from what she tells me, she still works with her stamps. — Jackie McMorran, former landlord, Lewiston
