DEAR SUN SPOTS: I’m asking for Sun Spots’ help. You have had success in the past helping people find things.

My niece has lost her iPhone. She was on Pine Street in Lewiston and went to Kommunity Kritters, Community Credit Union and Webb’s Market area. Then she went to the Share Center and CVS on East Avenue. She has asked people at all those places if anyone has turned in a phone, but no luck.

Maybe someone has found it, wants to return it, and will read about it here. Please call me at 784-4214. It would be greatly appreciated. I read your column every day. It’s very informative. Keep up the good work! — Pauline, no town

ANSWER: It would be helpful to know when your niece lost her phone, what model it is, what color the case is, and if it has any identifying markers like stickers or a PopSocket.

Has she gone to the Police Department or City Hall? Oftentimes, people bring found items of value there.

If you want to provide more information, please write in. I left a message for you but haven’t heard back and I really want to help your niece find her phone!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I have a sizable stack of American Patchwork & Quilting magazines that I’d like to give away. Beautiful quilts are pictured with patterns included. It was my favorite quilting magazine. Call me at 353-2248. — No name,  Lisbon

ANSWER: I know a particular Sun Spotter who may be interested in these and I know she reads Sun Spots every day without fail. My hunch is that you’ll be hearing from her!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Tell Cam (Nov. 28 Sun Spots) to check with a local Rotary Club, Lions Club, etc. to donate his medical equipment.

Here in the Old Orchard Beach/Saco area, the Rotary Club has a mobility lending closet and accepts this type of equipment. They lend the equipment to people at no charge. — Peg, no town


ANSWER: Thanks for the tip! The phone number listed on the L-A Rotary Club website is 440-6247.

I couldn’t find a contact for the local Lions Club so if anyone is a member or has information on whether the Lions have a program that collects and loans durable medical equipment, please write in.

Partners for World Health ( at 40 Walch St. in Portland will also accept your crutches and other medical equipment. Email the organization with as much detail as possible at  [email protected]  or call 774-5555.
