On Tuesday, everyone was alone when neighborhood kids hosted an MS Carnival at Paul Marcotte’s home on Champlain Ave, Lewiston. In a group, Bruce Austin, Tom Martel, James Marcotte, Roger Patry and Michelle Guilmette fire at the two clowns with wet sponges.

When Dennis Grasso of Livermore was about 12 years old, he found a set of old golf clubs in the basement of his family’s New York home and sneaked out to play on a nearby golf course. He and his friends went out at night and stayed until they were chased away. Golf courses were private clubs back then, and sneaking onto the East Chester Course was the only way to get in. Grasso no longer has to do that – now he has his own 9-hole course. In between there are 41 years of golf, starting with the caddy on the course he used to chase off to being golf professionals, owners and managers in his own club. Last February, Grasso and Jane Smith bought Maple Lane Golf Club in Livermore, converted part of the old farmhouse into a restaurant, and moved upstairs. Smith is a native of Main, and Grasso finds himself happier in the summer months.
