Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Reply Very sad three young men that have addiction problems. My son is one of the young men. Very heart breaking. My family has tried everything we can to get help for him. We did the Marchman act several times. That was a long process that was a joke. Finally when he was ordered to do something it was out patient treatment that he never did. When we did the Marchman act again same thing happened. His farther tried to talk to the judge and he refused to let him. He never did one out patient treatment and nothing was done. What good is a program that offers out patient treatment to addicts. Just a waste of family money and tax payor money. Also insurances have no addiction coverage. (ADDICTION IS A DESEASE) So now he has charges so what happens if jail rehab works? Is he able to ever get a job. Whats in the future for young people that happen to try something that takes control of them. Its a revolving door and people wonder why. lisa Now that he is officially “* in the system”‘ when he goes to court,, ask his judge to Order him to a inpatient, rehab..He might hate you at first,but when its all said and he is back on the right track,he will be go Grateful. Been there, lived threw it,,still alive to today thanks to my judge ..And family.. It’s hard mom,,hang on,Don’t give up on him,,and while he’s in jail,,Leave him right there,,at least you know where he is,,he is Alive, for another day..

It wasn’t easy at times, but when the dust settled, the GSA boys’ basketball team walked off the floor with yet another Gold Ball.GSA’s Taylor Schildroth approaches the half-court line as Hall-Dale’s Tyler Nadeau defends during the second half of the Class C boys’ basketball championship game March 3 at the Augusta Civic Center.

ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLThe George Stevens Academy boys’ basketball team won the Class C championship for the third consecutive year Saturday with a 64-59 win over Hall-Dale at the Augusta Civic Center. The win was the product of remarkable games from the Eagles’ senior leaders, who did what they’ve done best for four years now to bring the trophy back to Blue Hill once again.“It’s a great way for us to go out,” Mattson said. “They played us tough, but we stuck with it and found a way to get it done in the end.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textA Schildroth 3-pointer and Percy Zentz layup gave GSA a 5-0 lead to start the game before Hall-Dale scored its first points with a 3 of its own. Two possessions later, GSA (21-1) restored its five-point advantage with a three-point play from Simmons before the Bulldogs scored the next five to tie the game.Although GSA had a 19-16 lead after the opening quarter of play, Hall-Dale (20-2) scored the first five points of the second to take the lead for the first time. The Eagles were able to fight back, but with Schildroth shooting just 3 of 15, they clung to a 29-27 advantage as they went to the locker room.“We were over-passing it in the first half, and we had a lot of turnovers because of that,” Mattson said. “We were rushing it and weren’t really playing like we were the champions.”Although GSA eventually found its footing in the second half, Hall-Dale continued to pressure the Eagles early in the third quarter. Even after GSA took a five-point lead on a Schildroth 3-pointer and Simmons layup, the Bulldogs responded at the other end with a three-point play to cut the gap back to two.The Eagles, though, controlled the remainder of the third quarter and began to show signs of pulling away as Hall-Dale’s shots stopped falling. GSA then went into the fourth with a 48-38 lead after Schildroth made a stepback triple as time expired.The senior sharpshooter wasn’t done. With defenders draped in his face on both of the Eagles’ first two possessions of the fourth quarter, Schildroth sank two more 3-pointers to give GSA a 54-38 lead that was too much for Hall-Dale to overcome. The Bulldogs cut the deficit to single digits within the game’s final minute, but that served only to delay the inevitable as the Eagles celebrated on the Civic Center floor.GSA boys’ basketball team manager Ethan Snow (left) and player Max Mattson celebrate the Eagles’ 64-59 win over Hall-Dale in the Class C championship game March 3 at the Augusta Civic Center. With the win, GSA became just the second boys’ team in Class C history to win three consecutive state titles. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLSchildroth led all scorers with 27 points, 20 of which came in the second half. Stefan Simmons and Max Mattson had 14 and 10 points, respectively, and the two also combined for 19 rebounds against a Hall-Dale team that had no answers for GSA on the glass.“We knew we had the edge there with Max because of his size,” GSA head coach Dwayne Carter said. “He was able to get in there and do what he does, and that gave our team a huge advantage.”Schildroth, Mattson and Simmons will leave GSA having gone 64-2 over the past three seasons, meaning they have more state titles than total games lost during that span. Mattson said the first Gold Ball run will remain his favorite, but for Schildroth, going out on top is going to be hard to beat.“This one probably will be the sweetest just because it’s my last game,” Schildroth said. “I almost teared up when they were announcing [player] names over there. We’re so lucky to be able to win it three times in a row because a lot of people don’t even get to this game.”As for their coach, Carter has now won five state titles at GSA. Prior to the Eagles’ current streak, he had been part of championship-winning teams as a player in 1979 and as an assistant coach in 2003.Carter has said time after time that he isn’t sure when the run the Eagles have had over the past three years is going to set in. His last ride with one of the most successful senior classes in state history would have been memorable no matter what, but winning another title was the icing on the cake.“It’s a little bittersweet because I’m going to lose [these seniors], but it’s the best way to end it all,” Carter said. “They’re an amazing bunch of kids, and they deserve this.” MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020
