Therrrre Baaaaccckkkk. Once again, or is it twice or three times again, crews from Maine DOT are digging up the culvert on Main Street in front of the Taniscot Bulding that houses the Newcastle Town office. They were here in November doing the same thing trying to discover what is causing the pavement to buckle during storms. Is it an underground spring? Or maybe a blocked culvert?
Or is it, well, who cares what it is that triggers a flood in the busy intersection when it rains. We hope the crews will just fix it -this time. (Joe Gelarden photo.
