Reporters notebook: Styling feet

Kindergarten students at Lewiston’s Martel Elementary School welcomed June, the last month of school, recently with a “crazy sock” day, having fun with crazy and mismatched footwear. They took a picture of putting their best feet forward. Kindergarten teacher Susan Conklin said it was a fun way to start June.

It must be summer, L-A schools out today

Monday, June 11, is the last day of school for Lewiston and Auburn. Lewiston students have a full day today, Auburn half day.

Graduations and school dismissal are earlier this year because of the mild winter and fewer storm days.

Office humor

It’s always fun when candidates for municipal office share their humor straight-faced during an interview about why they are running for office.

During an interview on Thursday with Bethel Bicycles store owner Peter Southam in Bethel, he slipped gears mid-peddle. Southam is challenging incumbent Selectman Robert Everett.

“I just don’t think anybody should be running unopposed for selectman in a town. I mean, that’s just wrong,” Southam said, laughing.

“That doesn’t have anything to do with Bob Everett. It’s just that no one should be running unopposed in these things. There should be a choice of some sort.”
