A relatively quiet Machias Board of Selectmen meeting hit two crescendos on Wednesday, Jan. 27.
The first took place when, one hour into the event, five new attendees entered the Zoom waiting room. No sooner did chairman Joshua Rolfe admit them into the public meeting than the young people launched into their version of a prank phone call. Rolfe was seen forbearing their often-lewd comments with a sigh while working to remove them from the meeting.
