Hope to turn Sangerville into must-see destination

SANGERVILLE — Things are not always as they appear. That becomes obvious upon stepping into the old industrial brick building in Sangerville constructed right on the main drag. The existing building was part of Sangerville Woolen Co., then the Glencoe No. 1 boiler room and main shop.

UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE SMOKESTACK Over the decades the mill building in Sangerville has been the home of the Sangerville Woolen Co., Glencoe No 1, Dover Stove and more. New owners Clint and Lori Rohdin have plans for the structure to house motel rooms, a restaurant, a used car equipment business and possibly an event center.

BIG PLANS FOR THE NEW OWNERS Clint and Lori Rohdin recently became the owners of the large brick mill building on Route 23 in Sangerville. The Rohdins plan to repurpose the building into a motel, restaurant and used car and equipment business, helping to make downtown Sangerville into a destination. Clint and Lori are pictured in the new office located in the corner of the building under the chimney.

Recalls life as bush pilot and at sporting camp in new book

By John Holyoke

The day began like many others in Jake Morrel’s career as a bush pilot: He was to pick up a group of outdoorsmen and fly them to a far-flung lake so they could have a look around.

HARDSCRABBLE LODGE Wood piled up, ready for winter at Hardscrabble Lodge. Jake Morrell, who now lives in Sangerville, has written 36 short stories about his life as a bush pilot and sporting camp owner in “Hardscrabble Lodge: True Maine Bush Flying Stories”.  Hardscrabble Lodge is on Spencer Lake, 40 air miles from Greenville, and easily accessible only by float plane.
