Veterans Day Parade in N. Conway

by Tony on November 11, 2019

Conway residents turned out to watch the procession of Veterans, a Humvee, the Kennett High school Marching Band, and Scouts as they made their way from John H. Fuller Elementary school to Schouler Park today. The ceremony in North Conway included a flag presented on an empty seat dedicated to those Prisoners of War or Missing in Action that remain unrecovered but never forgotten and a fitting volley-fire salute to taps. Prayers and comments from the American Legion were also part of the ceremony but the most notable part of all this year was perhaps the attendance of retired four-star Air Force General Lori Robison who previously headed up the United States Northern Command and NORAD among other commands.

Failure to Yield: Fryeburg

Fryeburg police have identified and charged a 72-year-old Maine resident for failing to yield the right of way at a crosswalk. Police say William Layman of Augusta drove his 2019 GMC Sierra recklessly when he allegedly failed to yield the right of way to two pedestrians and caused property damage, hitting a crosswalk sign. Authorities are charging Layman with Driving to Endanger, Criminal Mischief, and Failing to Yield to Pedestrian in Crosswalk. Fryeburg Police Chief Joshua Potvin says the incident is a reminder, “that in the absence of traffic control devices, drivers are required to yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks who have shown visible intent to enter a marked crosswalk.” He also says pedestrians should make eye contact with the drivers in both directions to make sure the vehicle is stopping before crossing.
