    DOVER-FOXCROFT — Everyone is looking forward to seeing green grass and warm temperatures, considering the rough winter that’s almost behind us.
    But if your lawn took a beating from the snow and cold, it’s time to make an appointment with Merrill’s Landscaping in Dover-Foxcroft. “We’re more than likely going to have a late spring,” said Brenda Merrill, co-owner of the business with her husband, George. “But we’re getting calls already. Everyone wants to get on the list for spring cleanup and lawn work.”

The differences in education in Russia and the United States:
academic freedom

By Andrew Romanov
Foxcroft Academy senior

    Both Russian and U.S. history textbooks are full of unnecessary patriotism. The “official” explanations of bombings and a primary focus on elite and public figures leaves much to be desired.
    In U.S. textbooks, for instance, there is a lot of information about George Washington and his great accomplishments as a general and as the first President, but not a word about him being a slave owner. In Russian textbooks there is a whole lot of information about Stalin and his accomplishments as the leader of the Soviet Union, but not so much about his labor camps, the gulag system, and the millions of Soviet people that were murdered under his rule.
