Page 18 THE QUODDY TIDES 14 Dec, em- Lubec to clean-up burned buildings At a meeting of the Lubec board of selectmen Thursday night Town Office Manager Iley Walston spoke of complaints he had received from the Lubec Historical Society and other residents concerning the number of fire ravaged buildings still standing in the area. Although some ef- fort has been made in the past to take care of this problem, nothing definite was accomplished. After some discussion it was decided that letters be written and sent to the owners of these properties with copies of the law enclosed and giving them a time limit to clean up the ruins of the whole or partly burned buildings and to repair those that can be saved. Not only do they detract from the appearance of the town, but they are dangerous as well. If nothing is done at the end of the time limit, then the town will have to take further measures in insuring this clean-up. The Leighton building (former town office) has been leased to Burton and Eleanor Blanch doing business as the Sentinel Insurance Agency in Eastport, for a period of seven months. They will establish a branch of their insurance busi- ness here. All applications for weir permits at Bailey&apos;s Mistake were denied. Editor of Maine Campus from Lubec Tammy S. Eves of Lubec, a senior jour- nalism major, has been elected editor of the Maine Campus, the daily student newspaper at the University of Maine at Orono, for the spring, 1980, semester. Eves, a Dean's List student, has served as a managing editor, news editor and re- porter on the Campus and has also been a general assignment reporter with the Old Town-Orono Times. Her appointment to the top editorial post was made by the University's publi- cations committee whose members also endorsed the continuance of the Maine Campus as a daily newspaper during the spring, 1980, semester. In her appearance before the commit- tee Eves emphasized that she believed in the daily publication of the newspaper and would work to continue it as such by refining the copy flow and production, strengthening the editing, photography and advertising.
