Mayflower arrives at Plymouth Harbor

“On December 18, 1620, the English ship Mayflower arrives at modern-day Plymouth, Massachusetts, and its passengers prepare to begin their new settlement, Plymouth Colony. The famous Mayflower story began in 1606, when a group of reform-minded Puritans in Nottinghamshire, England, founded their own church, separate from the state-sanctioned Church of England. Accused of treason, they were forced to leave the country and settle in the more tolerant Netherlands. After 12 years of struggling to adapt and make a decent living, the group sought financial backing from some London merchants to set up a colony in America. On September 6, 1620, 102 passengers–dubbed Pilgrims by William Bradford, a passenger who would become the first governor of Plymouth Colony—crowded on the Mayflower to begin the long, hard journey to a new life in the New World.”

“The roads are pretty dang slippery and have not been plowed in a few hours.  I’m sure the Town Crews are hard at work on all the back roads trying to get caught up before they make a circuit back onto the main roads.   These guys work so hard and long we are blessed to have them!!!!!”

Senior Sam Jones awarded $180,000 NROTC scholarship

“A Waterville Jr./Sr. High School student, senior Sam Jones, was awarded a Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Scholarship worth $180,000 on Dec. 11. Jones was recognized at an in-school ceremony where remarks were given by U.S. Marine Corps Captain Daniel Stuckart and Sam’s father Tim Jones, who is also a member of the Waterville Board of Education. The full scholarship covers Jones’ education at a four-year college, where he can choose the focus of his degree, while he is also part of the school’s ROTC program. To earn the scholarship, Capt. Stuckart said students had to submit an application, which included reviews of grade point average and SAT scores and show they are active in the school community. Applicants also had to complete a USMC fitness test. “We’re looking for young men and women to be leaders and accept responsibility for others. That’s what we saw in Sam,” said Capt. Stuckart. As part of the ROTC program, Jones would take part in officer candidate school after his junior year and enter the USMC as a second lieutenant. Jones was one of 20 students selected for the scholarship out of 95 applicants in the northeast region of the United States. Stuckart said six of those 20 students are from New York State.”
