MADAWASKA– On any given night in Madawaska, especially in the summer months when people are more inclined to spend evenings fireside enjoying the mild temperatures, people can hear the pops and crackles of consumer fireworks displays echoing throughout the town, but that may soon change as officials plan to start enforcing the local fireworks ordinance.
MADAWASKA– Police in Madawaska are warning community members to beware of computer scammers asking for personal information or requesting money after they received three separate complaints over the past week.

Only, there was no meeting.
Roger Thibodeau, the school committee chair, was the only member of the school committee present. Promptly at 6 p.m., he called the audience to attention and announced, "We will not have a meeting."

I think I’ve admitted this before, but I’m hardly a fan of exercise.
I just have a hard time wrapping my brain around why anyone would want to subject themselves to torture. Also, why buy special clothes just to sweat in them and make more laundry? It seems like such a waste of good laundry detergent.
