On July 30, the Swan’s Island Library hosted its Annual Island Bazaar while celebrating the fifh anniversary of the new library building. Artists, crafts people, good food and an auction, along with music by island musicians, created a festive atmosphere.
One of the highlights of the day was a repeat performance by juggler Zack Field. He wowed the crowd at the opening of the library, and happily came back to celebrate the anniversary.
Carol Petraitis, presdent of the Swan’s Island Educational Society board of trustees, read a congratulatory letter from Sen. Susan Collins and presented gifts of appreciation to past president Ken Dutille and exiting board member Christal Applin.

The Maine Department of Marine Resources will hold a public hearing May 14 on a proposal to dredge Beals Harbor and Pig Island Gut Channel. The hearing, set for 6 p.m. at the Beals Elementary School, will be conducted to receive testimony solely about the impact on the fishing industry.
This winter's book selection included a front to back reading of Michael Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemma, which I had dipped into here and there since it first came out in 2006. Another was chef Daniel Barber's The Third Plate. Both of these fellas racked up tons of frequent flier miles zipping around the Northern Hemisphere.
