Bible heading back to Maine after 150 years

THOMASTON, MAINE – How an old, expensive, and inscribed Bible ended up several years ago in an eclectic store known as Pamlico Antiques and Designs remains unexplained.

Meter for home use first line of defense as 5G radiation ramps up

By Rick Happ I wish to thank Gordon Allison for the informative articles regarding possible health problems from the recent barrage of modern wireless communication devices. The lawsuits detailed could be significant and I look forward to reading about any court decisions in future issues of the County Compass. For those who are personally concerned about their health from this RF radiation, I recommend measuring their home radiation levels using a quality RF meter. Work and school measurements are also often enlightening. We are fortunate in this area to have at our local library an Acou…

I Done Got Old | A Time for Reflection

By Rick Happ MISSISSIPPI – A few days ago I celebrated a milestone birthday. All in all, it was a good day. My wife Nancy made my favorite dinner – steak, a good salad, and she also made Tapioca pudding for desert.

You can hear this song by Junior Kimbrough (Fat Possum Records) on YouTube at this url: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSWTkI_aVSo It is a blessing to have many good experiences in life, especially educational ones, whe…

Our country would do well to emulate European standards, which require using wired connections (ethernet) to the internet for all grades up to high school age. Using wire, rather than radio wav…

Bear tracks on Bayboro porch

BAYBORO – Jeannette Hudson and her granddaughter Lillie Grace Hudson examine bear tracks Tuesday afternoon – clearly evident in a sticky goo under the porch’s hummingbird feeder. “I just want to alert my neighbors in Bayboro that we have had a bear around here on two consecutive nights,” chuckled Jeannette. “He went after our three bird feeders, and he must have carried off a large galvanized can of birdseed on the back porch, because I can’t find it anywhere.” In addition to sticky footprints, bent metal shepherd hooks that once held feeders, and a dug up flower garden, the nocturnal creature…

Everybody Else’s History Old screen door brings back wonderful memories

By Lisa Rice ALLIANCE – Welcome back to ‘Everybody’s Else’s History.” Last time, we took a look at a ‘Granny Bench,’ which is a unique relic from yesteryear! Many people ask me what my favorite item is in my man cave. I don’t even have to think about it! I got it from my uncle and aunt. You’ll see it in this week’s photo. Yep! A screen door! My uncle built his house in the early 70s. About a year ago, he and his wife were going to do some remodeling. The first thing to go was that screen door. I went to see them one day and immediately saw that the screen door was GONE! Oh, no!! I asked about it in a very panicky voice…
