The Presque Isle Police Department responded to a call around noontime of a man shooting a handgun behind 174 Main Street. Officers responded immediately and were assisted by Maine State Police, Aroostook County Sheriffs, Presque Isle Fire Department and other agencies
I totally understand that we Mainers are frugal. That we will get every nickel out of our homes, our equipment, and our vehicles. Especially during these COVID times, when there's sometimes not a lot of money to go around. But you need to know when to say "When." Over the years my wife has literally watched me run down the street in tears as a tow truck would take away my old car to the junk pile. "Maybe I could get another year out of her... " So I totally empathize with the owner of this vehicle that our heroes at the Maine State Police pulled over this week.
Given the year and all of the things that have happened since the start, it's always nice to find a Maine story that has an amazing ending. This story you're about to hear is no exception to that rule.
Yesterday (September 21st), Maine Sate Police were called by the York County Sheriff's Office to assist in locating a kindergartener that had walked off into the woods at recess and had gotten lost.
Cars...they can cost so much to get ready for a Maine State Inspection, but for safety's sake, it is something that must be done. But yet, some Mainers will do anything to get out of paying for repairs to make their vehicle safe for themselves, you and anyone driving around them.
