Waldoboro Fire Department Presents Haunted House
On Halloween night, the members and friends of Waldoboro Fire Department will once again be filling their guests with fear as they travel the halls of the former A.D.Gray Middle School. The Waldoboro branch of the Central Lincoln County YMCA invited the fire department to use their facility on School Street in Waldoboro, to present their 5th annual haunted house.
This year's theme is "Fairy Tales Gone Bad". Those who dare will be able to visit horrific scenes from their favorite childhood stories. Goldilocks and the Three Bears, will keep company with Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Blind Mice and many more. Mother Goose will be on hand overseeing how things went terribly wrong.
Doors open at 6 o'clock Friday evening, October 31st, and will close at 9:00PM. Admission is $1 per person. Firefighters will be assisted by their families, and their friends from the Waldoboro Police Department.

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for Lincoln County, Maine (All Jurisdictions)
The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency has issued a preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable, Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report, reflecting proposed flood hazard determinations within Lincoln County, Maine (All Jurisdictions).
These flood hazard determinations may include the addition or modification of Base Flood Elevations, base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries or zone designations, or the regulatory floodway. Technical information or comments are solicited on the proposed flood hazard determinations shown on the preliminary FIRM and/or FIS report for Lincoln County, Maine (all Jurisdictions).
These flood hazard determinations are the basis for the floodplain management measures that your community is required to either adopt or show evidence of being already in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. However, before these determinations are effective for floodplain management purposes, you will be provided an opportunity to appeal the proposed information.
For information on the statutory 90-day period provided for appeals, as well as a complete listing of the communities affected and the locations where copies of the FIRM are available for review, please visit FEMA’s website at www.fema.gov/plan/prevent/fhm/bfe, or call the FEMA Map Information eXchange(FMIX) toll free at 1-877-FEMA MAP (1-877-336-2627)
