DEAR SUN SPOTS: Great Falls Delivery Cafe is no longer doing daily lunch deliveries. Are there any other lunch delivery services in Lewiston-Auburn?

— No name, no town

ANSWER: According to the cafe’s July 20 announcement on Facebook, they are focusing the business on catering. However, Lewiston Courier Service delivers lunches from anywhere. As a matter of fact, this business ( delivers just about anything. Food, including Hannaford To Go, personal items, prescriptions, documents, extra keys, coffee … the list goes on. The website has links to all the area restaurants. The number to call is 837-5004. What a handy thing to know about. Thanks for this informative question.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Crafters are needed for the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 72 Foster-Carroll Craft Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. Interested crafters may contact me at 583-7187 or [email protected]. No vendors, please.

— Tricia, no town

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Thank you so much for printing our SeniorsPlus request for Meals on Wheels volunteers in the Aug. 26 Sun Spots. There’s always a great need for volunteers in our programs. I am fairly new in my position here and it has been an incredibly humbling experience for me to see the amount of community members here in the Lewiston-Auburn area and beyond volunteering for SeniorsPlus; close to 500 people, and we are so incredibly thankful.

I can only imagine the thousands of volunteers I don’t even know about who volunteer at other agencies, shelters, schools, hospitals, etc. It just goes to show how amazing this community truly is!

— Deanna, Human Resources and Volunteer Services coordinator, SeniorsPlus, Lewiston

ANSWER: If you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity, please check out SeniorsPlus by contacting Deanna [email protected], 513-3725, This dynamic organization that helps so many people in the area is a happening place.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Thanks for all your help on every topic! My problem is that the words are not in focus when I try to read the paper on my  iPad unless I wait as much as 10 or 15 minutes. This has been a problem in several different locations. Maybe this means that my iPad is the problem. Do you have any thoughts that would help?

ANSWER: Because this is happening with more than one website, the problem is most likely a software issue. Have you tried completely shutting down the iPad, waiting a few moments, then starting it again? You may also have to uninstall any corresponding applications and then reinstall them.

If this doesn’t correct the issue, I would advise that you contact a computer geek. Libraries often have staff members who offer technology assistance at certain days and times during the week and may be able to give you a hand.

Local computer software wizards in the Sun Spots Rolodex are Jim Fish at Action Computer Services at 87 Essex St. in Lewiston. The number is 786-8740. Buck Buchanan at [email protected] or 784-6295 is another person recommended by a reader. I hope this helps and you are back to seeing clearly on your iPad in no time!

Readers, as always, write to Sun Spots if you have other recommendations.
