In preparation for the big blizzard, I forgot to include an office fire on my list. In the days ahead I will provide information about Kezar Realty's location and plans but in the interim everyone's e-mails are working and you may reach me at home (207-925-2057) or on my cell (207-890-3834). We are working hard to minimize any disruptions.

This is also a tremendous loss to the town of Lovell. The building was always a center of activity and served as the general store for generations. Many people came in and spent time with me discussing their memories of the building and the good times they had there. From those visits sprang the idea for the local conversations sponsored by the Lovell Historical Society.

A great amount of appreciation, admiration and respect go out to all of the Volunteer fire departments--Lovell, Fryeburg, Stoneham, Saco Valley and Center Conway--the Stoneham and Freyburg Rescue units and the great efforts of Central Maine Power, FairPoint Communications and the Time-Warner Company to get 18,000 people back up and running. All worked in below freezing temps and heavy snowfall. Here's a short video of the fire.

            My family went through it with our homestead in North Lovell and I don't wish it on anybody. Guess the only good news is that nobody died or was injured. Hang in there, Stan.

                    I hope you know that you have been in my thoughts and prayers these last few days. I cannot imagine what you're going through. I'm also thinking of the entire town of Lovell, and what it all means to the morale of the town. Kudos to all the fire departments and all they did, as well.

                        Rich, Thank you very much! The week of the fire I was rearranging the cork board and centering on top the Fractional Ownership info. Will be up and running shortly.
