BUCKSPORT — Birthday celebrations can be challenging during a global pandemic given the Governor’s order to stay at home and not gather in groups.
To that end, Bucksport police officers and firefighters helped make a local boy’s fifth birthday a bit more fun last week by parading past the boy’s house in public safety vehicles with lights flashing and sirens blaring.
The April 8 parade included Public Safety Director Sean Geagan, Deputy Police Chief David Winchester and Officer Matt Schmidt in addition to fire department members.
Officer Steve Bishop gave a woman a ride home from the Big Apple in Orland on Sunday.
Officer Gerald Lowe arrested Mary Nevells, 39, of Blue Hill on charges of criminal speed, driving to endanger, resisting arrest and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant on Sunday. Nevells was taken to the Hancock County Jail. She has since been released on bail.
Loose sheep were in the roadway April 8. Officer Eric Marcel handled the call.
Officer Gerald Lowe summoned Megan Phinney, 33, of Bucksport on a charge of speeding April 7.
Anna Marie Bernard, 31, of Bucksport was summoned on a charge of speeding April 7.
