Page 22 THE QUODDY TIDES 9 November, 1984 Oceanview Nursing Home notes Our annual Hallowe'en party was held last week and it included the judging of the best costume. Mar}' Moores was dress- ed as a witch, Arlene McEacharn as a devil, Florence Libby as a Hallowe'en candy tree. and Augusta Miller as a ghost. Marjorie Hill, Dorothy Tyler and Laura Spain were the judges Arlene McEach- am, "'the devil", was voted as the winner. In the evening, the residents enjoyed a party of cider and donuts. Many children visited the nursing home and residents handed out cookies which they had made. Addle lngalls, Gladys Tinker. Betty Prout, Mary, Moores, Mable Hall, Hattie Keezer, Florence Libby, hme Harvey and John Grab, attended the delicious ham supper at the Temple Church. We would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. John Brown for lending us a helping hand. Residents have been helping put stamps on envelopes for Larry Brown. What fun we had, and of course we had ice cream sundaes to celebrate when we were done. Severn residents attended the pot luck supper for Larry Brown on Sunday, and all came home saying they had a - nice time. Our beano auction was a big success and enjoyed by all those residents who had been saving their tickets from the games they had won in the past few months. We would like to thank everyone in- volved in the talent show and those who made candy and squares to help raise money for our "Resident Without Fam- ily" Christmas Fund. We would also like to thank the VFW for sponsoring the 50/ 50 beano game for our Christmas Fund and Norma Small for donating fresh. homemade donuts to sell as refreshments. One lady who had a great deal of luck at the game turned her winnings back to us. Paulyne McFadden won the six month free cable TV raffle donated by the Pine Tree Cable Company. We welcome Carrie Libby as our new- est resident at Ocean View. Hilda Spear has returned from Down East Communi- ty Hospital. . / KA THLEEN M. SCANLON, Smith Kline service representative, instructing Rick Packard in the operation of the new tele-communications printer at the Regional Medical Center in Lubec, (Morong Photo) Lab. test results by Tele-Communications at Lubee Med. Center Lubec, Maine is now on the map as far as tele-communications are concern- ed. Rick Packard, Laboratory manager at the Regional Medical Center at Lubec and Kathleen Scanlon, Service Represen- tative for Smith Kline Clinical Labora- tory in Waltham, Mass., have just com- pleted almost two months of work in setting up the first tele-communications printer in the area that gives laboratory test results direct from the main compu- ter at SKCL in Waltham. "When I first arrived at the Regional Medical Center, I was shocked at the long turn around time for tests done out- side the laboratory", stated Rick. "It took a week to 10 days to get laboratory test results through the mails and 1 realiz- ed, though Lubec is somewhat isolated, this isn't the end of the earth". Esoteric tests (those not done onsite at the Medical Center)are now sent out by courier Monday through Friday to Bangor where the specimens fly to Bos- ton via Bar Harbor Airlines. The speci- mens are picked up at Logan Internation- al and brought to the Smith Kline Clinical Laboratories in Waltham, Mass. where they are processed, information fed into a computer, tested andthe results entered" into a computer. The Regional Medical Center at Lubec now receives test results over the telephone computer line twice a day, Monday through Friday. "rest results that took a week or more to get here are now in the physicians hands in 72 hours or less" stated rick. "Maybe we are at the end of the earth but that is no reason why we at the Regional " Medical Center of Lubec can't give the" local populace the best medical service possible." Old News from The Lubec Herald LubecHerald, Nov. 6, 1947-Last Friday when John McCurdy had just put down a strip of cement in front of the Herald office, several down-towners dropped in to chuckle over our thought. lessness with Hallowe'en coming up that evening. The youngsters came, a whole bunch _ of them in false faces and exuberance of growing kids out for a little fun. We were working that evening and when they came trooping in, just a word to be careful of the cement and off they went telling others to keep off it. It was a friendly kindliness and we found these Lubec boys and girls really co-operative. This has been a unfortunate year for so many out-of-staters who return to Maine in the fall for a little deer hunting. The ban, caused by so many woods fires still is on and there seems slight hope it will be lifted in time for those whose vacations are planned months ahead to early November. Deer are plentiful in this part of the state and the recent fires have driven them into good hunting territory. Lubec Herald, Nov. 11, 1948-The radio beacon at West Quoddy Head Light, which is put in operation whenever visi- bility drops below ten miles, was at work for 148 hours during October 1948, as against 257 hours during the same month a year ago. However, the fog horn, whi'.ch signalizes visibility of less than five miles, did its duty during 76 hours and 50 min- utes this past month whereas it was call- ed upon for only 46 hours in October of last year.
