And while there remains good things to see and do on The Island, it is in need of improvements. Some 50 people gathered in the Rumford Falls Auditorium on Jan. 29 to set goals for those improvements, with the hope the help for the follow through efforts will be enhanced by becoming a Maine Downtown Network Community.

  1. Sure, maybe kidnapping is illegal but what about a forced march? Take Rumford’s need for people and gubernatorial candidate Wood’s plan for shutting down small towns and bingo, two problems solved.

    Hi John- Thanks for reading, and commenting, and shoveling your sidewalk.

    I have no doubt that Rumford is on Genghis Wood’s list of towns to be wiped from the face of the earth.

    Sad to Hear. As a Michigander I’ve always been an admirer of Maine. Never been there of course, but learned all I could from the old National Geographics we keep in the outhouse. I imagine it’s a lot like Michigan except with a good economy.
