The Sandberg family of Monson, my heart goes out to this family.
As a young teen back in the early 70's, I lived just down the road from them for few months and many.. many days were spent walking the road between their home and where I lived.
The Sandbergs were the parents of my best friend at the time. I loved and adored them and remember how warmly they welcomed me into their home.
Time distanced us and we lost touch but I never forgot this family and now am deeply saddened to read this.

Was in Dexter over the weekend with my family. Everything was gorgeous from the nice sunny days and the cold nights to the sun shimmering off the lake. And seeing the snow caped mountains in the distance from Rt.7 was fabulous. First day of hunting season I believe. Saw a horse in a field with a bright orange blanket over it. Couldn't believe that one!

Good Morning TheDailyME readers,
I am sorry to say, I have taken down the guestbook "sign in" page for awhile because of SPAMMERS. They are coming in faster than I can delete them! When I get up in the morning and sign on, I have another dozen or so spam signings. What a pain, but all in all, I still love the internet.
Thanks to you all that let me know about such idiots who spam us. But I guess it is just one of the hiccups that we all have to put up with if we are on the internet. I will be putting it back in the near future, after we are off some of the spam lists.
If anyone would like to put an entry in, email it directly to me and I will gladly add it. Email editor@TheDailyME.com
Thanks for your understanding. Have a great day!

I just returned to Florida after visiting Dexter for about 5 days. What a wonderful time I had with friends and family. The class of '75 had its 30th year reunion. We had a blast. Lots of stories and "remember when ...." My thanks to the crew who pulled it all together. Dexter is warmly held in my heart.

I am sorry to hear about Hal Wilkins and my prayers and thoughts go out to Penny and the boys.I met Hal at McCourt's Gym in the early 90's.I remember the first time I met him he was bench pressing a sizeable amount of weight.
He then stopped huffing and puffing and stood up.I looked at him and he grabbed my hand with a crushing handshake and a smile.From then on I knew we had another "gym rat" friend. I believe Penny then apologized and affirmed that Hal was her husband with a gleeful and a slightly embarrassing mile. I then told Stan McCourt later,"that guy is a beast and yet he has the smile of a teddy bear". Stan smirked,nodded his head and voiced his little laugh,"heh heh". We then got to know each other a lot better and shared many humorous and close times.His boys then started working out and we all laughed and joked while continuing to train over the following years.
I remember they even came to Portland to support us guys who competed at the Maine State Bodybuilding Championships.My family and our church at Cornerstone Baptist in Exeter are also praying for Penny and the family.Thank God for people like Hal,I won't ever forget you.

I personaly never met Mr. Clark but reading the comments other people have said about him reminds me of another great histroy teacher Hector Hebert. The Dexter school system has been blessed with many great teachers over the years ,it sounds that Mr. Clark was one of them

Thank you so much for the kind words about our Dad, and Grandfather, I should add. He was loved and appreciated by so many. His teachings, at school and at home, always had meanings way beyond the spoken word. He was noble and quiet and a true femanist. Margaret and I and our girls; Jessi, Kristy and Brittany; are strong women because of him. He always believed that we could do anything that we wanted as long as we believed. His legacy will live on in us.
A big thank you to all who contribute the the scholarship fund. We will continue to distribute it to seniors at DRHS that show integrity, a love for education and its value, and an appreciation for what our schools have to offer.
Again, thank you for remembering him and keep the stories coming. We smile everytime we read one.
We are very saddened at his passing but we smile at the thought that he is with our Mom and brother now.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Clark. He will be remembered as a caring, warm teacher, who expected the best from his students. I remember when I decided not to read--or write the required book report on--"For Whom the Bell Tolls"; he certainly let me know that he was disappointed in me! Every time he signed my yearbook after that, he simply wrote, "...For Whom the Bell Tolls.....Best Wishes -Mr. Clark." (just one example of his funny, dry sense of humor). I send my sincere thoughts, prayers, and condolences to his loved ones.

Just want to add to all the words about Mr. Clark, although words are never enough.
I remember his classes, his dedication and his guts, I say that because looking back on the 1960s and the Cold War it took guts and dedication to the students to make half of the US government class a class on Soviet history and government. I remember him telling us that we couldn't appreciate what we had unless we knew the other side. He taught us a valuable lesson about looking at both sides of any issue and I for one will be forever greatful. I wish more of the teachers today were like those we had at DHS. Mr. Clark, Mr. Rowe, Mr. Shea, Mr. Jacobs and Mrs. Hammond gave us a superior education. Thanks again to all of them!

I was saddened to hear of Mr. Clarks passing. He was my favorite teacher. I always remember a lecture he gave us. He sais "may lightning strike me if I'm wrong" And then he took a big sidestep.His humor made his class interesting instead of boring. My prayers go out to his family.

I will always remember the day I met Ted Clark. It was the first day of school and as I walked into my U.S. History class, I saw written on the board," Sit down, Shut Up, or Get Out." I remember thinking to myself, "This guy's gotta be a real jerk." About then the classroom door slammed shut, and there stood the biggest, meanest looking teacher I had ever seen. He stared around the room for what seemed like an eternity and then said, "you people are in the wrong class. This is U.S. History. You obviously should be
in a class where you can learn to read and follow directions." He then walked to his desk podium where he proceeded to give us a list of what was expected of us for his class.
He wasn't the ogre he appeared at our first contact. He taught history in a manner that made it interesting. To Mr. Clark, history wasn't just a collection of events that happened on certain dates. He taught me that history was a combination of social, political, economic and religious conditions which precipitated the events we knew as history. In short, Mr. Clark was a teacher who tried to teach us to think for ourselves. I was blessed with the opportunity to learn at the knee of a great man, he gave me an appreciation for history that remains with me to this day.

It saddens me greatly to read of the passing of one of Dexter's finest, Ted Clark. I had Mr. Clark as a teacher at DRHS and considered him the best teacher I had ever had. His kind and caring personality towards his students was well beyond the call of duty. God's peace be with you Mr. Clark.

Although there have been changes that some would call not so good, it's still a wonderful place. I just love returning, when I can, and walking those streets. Good memories always come flooding back right on cue. Like the times I braved the harsh winter nights for the tidy some of 8 cents to fetch treats from Toots for my oldest brother. Don't recall want his treats, but my reward was also a 3 cents lunch bar and 5 cent bag of Humpty Dumpty chips.
I left Dexter as a 11 year old in 59. Parents moved to Millinocket, which I dislike to this day. Left Maine for good in 67, but always longed for Dexter. So much so, I purchased a second home, http://back2maine.com there last year.

I am a long term Moosehead resident in exile but born and raised and graduated in Greenville, Maine. Of course I'm very interested in the news of my hometown and heard and read all about Plum Creek's many plans for the area. If these plans come to fruition then lots of new people will be coming to the area of Moosehead. There is a situation that needs to be looked into and that is Public Transportation. There are many Greenville High School Alumni and former Greenville residents like myself who year after year have to look into other forms of transportation home to Moosehead because even though I have had a drivers license for years, I have no vehicle. The only other way (that I know of) to get to Moosehead with no car is to take a Greyhound to Bangor and then have friends or relatives make the 75 mile round trip to Bangor to bring me to Greenville. In 2004 I was not able to make it to Moosehead all year. There are many others in my situation and will soon be many more if Plum Creek's plan is approved. More money could be brought to the area if there was public transportation and money is always the bottom line as we all know.

To bad that Maine defeted the Sunday Hunting Law-- that means that myself and 3 others will not hunt in Maine this year-New York has Sunday Hunting and is closer and the same price for nonresidents----so long Maine---to 4 licenses and about $1000 that we usually spend there

Have a nice day and see you at the Industrial fair in the Spring. Will send a photo of my snowsled on my woodcutting trail.

I enjoyed Fred Wintle's recent story about whole milk. My sisters & brother & I grew up drinking whole milk, enjoying homemade butter, whipped cream & also fresh eggs. While we never had what you would call a dairy farm my Dad did have a family farm and several of the neighbors dropped in to buy milk and eggs. I have very good memories of that much simpler time.

Thanks Fred for bringing back the memories of my great grandmother Grace. I too remember well the monkies in her living room, always trying to pat them but, they, in return would alway try to "get" me. My father has told me the stories of the alligator in the basement when he was a young child. I also remember all of the "little creatures" in their cages in the kitchen. Thanks Fred for your wonderful stories.

A huge thank you to our area merchants and surrounding friends for their generous donations to all the organizations that approach them time and time again. And a thank you to all volunteers that make the festival happen and to the people that do what they do, "just because". My family enjoys the small town atmosphere and the comforts of small, hometown, fun activities! Thanks, Dexter, for allowing "good-time memories" to be made!

Thanks everyone for all the support you have been giving me. Yes, editing the guestbook is becoming a real "pain", but for now I am not going to get 'rid' of it.
Please be patient if I don't get to "the editing" immediately. Too bad the 'immature signers who use aliases' don't do something more worthwhile with their time. I do TheDailyME.com for Free for my community, do they want to donate some time as well?
Also, the puppies are for sale with a few brown and black ones left. Send an email for more information.
I am pleased to say TheDailyME.com now gets up to 18,500 hit a day and readers are from far away as Florida, Kuwait, local and everywhere in-between. Thanks also to the readers for sharing their pictures. We “all” enjoy the various types that come by email.
So feel free to "sign in" (except you moron's.... hehehe) and share your thoughts.
Have a great day! Judy

I would live there in Maine in a heartbeat but I physically cannot take the cold, soooo I am forced to suffer the sunny days and warmth of Florida!
