Changing lanes

The Maine Department of Transportation (DOT) has been busy repaving and painting roads in and around Machias. The unusual line configurations painted onto Free Street, shown here, and on the short one-way stretch of Broadway have raised eyebrows. Machias Town Manager Christina Therrien said that the state has recently taken over responsibility for both stretches of road because they are essential connectors to Route 192 and Route 1.

Machiasport voters approved 49 articles in 51 minutes at the annual town meeting last Monday night, including one which establishes Machiasport as a dry town for marijuana.

Machiasport’s Bucks Harbor on the weekend before the 4th of July

A large quantity of boats rested in Machiasport’s Bucks Harbor on the weekend before the 4th of July. Behind them and to the right, Bucks Head is visible, probably named for Captain Thomas Buck of Plymouth, Massachusetts who carried the first settlers to Machias in 1763. Bucks Head was a subject of discussion at the most recent town meeting, when Machiasport voters authorized selectmen to investigate the possible purchase of 23 acres there, which include one-half mile of shoreline, provided the purchase does not increase taxes.
