As reported by the Bethel Citizen last week, the above headline left me wondering why he was quitting the race. After reading the full story, the term "Throws The Hat In" actually meant that he was entering the race for Governor instead of quitting. After speaking with a few other people, I noticed that 50% thought the same as me. Where does this saying originate and what is the real meaning of "throwing in the hat"? I did notice that in the classifieds real estate section, one could pick up several new log cabin homes for under $200k each. In this ski resort area those homes would have been a decent buy a couple of years ago. It is still a great time to buy! Interested? Give us a call at 207-784-2525

     As a kid in the Northeast, I remember building snow forts, digging elaborate tunnels and constructing snowman in the back yard with neighbor kids.  The snowman we Maine kids built depended on the temperature, kind of snow and the size/ ambition of the work force of kids.  What's that large shadow? It's from Olympia...a mountain of snow built by the Maine town of Bethel that already held the record for tallest snowman.  Over 13 million pounds and over 122 feet tall!      In winter, Maine kids don't hibernate inside camped out on the couch vegging on television and video games, or destroying whole pizzas or gallons of soda.  They entertain themselves, get lungs full of fresh Maine air and rosy cheeks from fun and games outdoors.  Maine ski areas have plenty of snow for holiday school...

Bethel, Maine is nestled among beautiful ponds and lakes, the Mahoosuc range, and of course Sunday River. Some say, the Bethel Village is the quintessential New England town. Main Street offers a variety of shopping experiences, ranging from artisan galleries to to fresh baked scones. The town common is a lovely peaceful place to watch the day go by! Visit the Bethel Historical Society opposite the Village green for a tour of Bethel's history.
