New signs went up this week next to water access points in Auburn, including at Bonney Park, where 5-year-old Valerio McFarland and his older brother, Maxim, fell into the Androscoggin River in April. The signs, which say “Enjoy our river safely,” also have notices stating “Strong current,” “Swift water” and “Uneven shoreline.” Valerio McFarland drowned. Maxim was rescued.  (Andree Kehn photo/Andrew Rice caption/Sun Journal)
