DEAR SUN SPOTS: I found a pair of infant-size prescription eye glasses at Livermore Falls Recreational Park. They are pink and have a safety strap. This can be picked up at the Livermore Falls Police Department. — Linda, no town

ANSWER: That’s very good thinking to take this important item to the local police department. I have my fingers crossed that the little one’s parents are Sun Spots readers!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Several years ago I misplaced my Lewiston High School 1953 gold class ring. The initials on the inside of the ring are J.L.F. If anyone has found it and has tucked it away in a drawer, could you please return it to me? Please call 784-9610. — Jackie, Lewiston

ANSWER: Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your ring was returned to you after all this time? It could happen! Keep us posted.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I have boxes of 1,000 piece puzzles with 12 or more puzzles in each box. These have been used once and are free, but will need to be picked up. My phone number is 784-3910 — No name, Auburn

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I saw on Channel 8 news on Monday, May 31, that the Sun Journal is moving to Portland. Was the building sold? What was the reason for the move? Will I still write to you at the Sun Spots address? I need more information please. Thank you. — No name, Lewiston

ANSWER: Only the printing operation of the paper has been moved to South Portland for fiscal reasons and because the Lewiston press equipment was aging. The newsroom, advertising, circulation and customer service employees will continue on in the Lewiston building at 104 Park St. You can still reach Sun Spots at the same address.

The Sun Journal and its predecessors have been printing the paper at 104 Park St. for 125 years, though roots go back to 1847, so it was a sad day when it stopped. The press area in Lewiston is now a circulation depot for Sun Journal carriers, with bundles delivered from South Portland.

Rest easy, this change does not affect Sun Spots or the Sun Journal’s service to its many wonderful customers.
