Spicing up downtown Ellsworth

ELLSWORTH Things are heating up, and not just the weather. Robin's Romantic Supermart on 14 Front Street in Ellsworth is a recent addition to the downtown scene, offering a wide array of adult toys, movies and magazines.

The proprietress, Robin Rosenberg, has been open for a little more than a month ago. When she approached the city about opening an adult-themed store, she was concerned that there would be resistance.

All the whistles and bells

Downeast Scenic Railroad

There ain't nothing sweeter than riding the rail.
-Tom Waits

ELLSWORTH The railroad has a long and storied history in America. It was both the backbone and lifeline of industry and commerce in many places, and it was no different in Maine. Volunteers have gone above and beyond to not only preserve this history, but ensure that future generations can actually experience rail travel for themselves with the Downeast Scenic Railway.

'[The Downeast Scenic Rail] informs people of history of the line and what its meaning has been to the community, and how it helped develop the area,' said Tom Testa, president of the Downeast Rail Heritage Preservation Trust, Inc. 'This was the link to the world.'

SURRY -  Zoe Weil, humane educator, author and president of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) in Surry, will perform her one-woman show, 'My Ongoing Problems With Kindness: Confessions of MOGO Girl,' on June 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth, 121 Bucksport Rd.

Weil uses personal stories and a delightful wit to admit that living according to the MOGO (MOst GOod) principle to do the most good and least harm to herself, other people, animals and the environment can present unexpectedly humorous hurdles. The performance will resonate with everyone who has found themselves in the wrong lane while trying to do the right thing.

Chris Smither returns to The Grand

ELLSWORTH - The Grand presents the return of the great cosmic blues sound of Chris Smither on Friday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Having distilled his own signature sound of blues and folk for over 40 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original. A profound songwriter, Smither continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and philosophers with this 14th record of his lengthy career. From his early days as the New Orleans transplant in the Boston folk scene, through his wilderness years to his reemergence in the 1990s as one of America's most distinctive acoustic performers, Chris Smither continues to hone his distinctive sound. He has always traveled his own road, eschewing sophisticated studio tricks and staying true to his musical vision. He has developed and maintained loyal friendships over the years with kindred-spirited musicians like Bonnie Raitt and the late Stephen Bruton and inspires the next-generation of musicians.
