The week in photos: Tribute to teachers and veterans


JJ Harrison, center right, smiles March 31 as he greets his teacher, Sue Hedrich, left, at Farwell Elementary School in Lewiston. Hedrich, a special education teacher, had just arrived at school in a limo after being nominated for a Golden Apple Award. Hedrich’s students waited for her to arrive and then rode up to see the inside of a limo. “I didn’t even know I was nominated. It’s very humbling,” says the first-grade teacher. “I’ve worked in healthcare for 31 years and always wanted to be a teacher, but i didn’t have the time or the money to go back to school. now i’m here at farwell and i love it. The Golden Apple Award is given by 107.5 Frank FM radio to recognize outstanding teachers. Hedrich says she was nominated by an intern student at Bates College in Lewiston. Daryn Slover/Sun Diary

Nate Landry, director of operations for the Lewiston Water and Sewer Division, uses a geophone March 28 to listen to water flowing under a driveway on Mountview Terrace. “It works great for hearing water and rocks moving just below the surface, but you have to be careful because you’ll go deaf if you stick them together,” he says. The device helps to determine the locations of leaks or breaks in the main water line. Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal

Russ Hart, left, and his brother, Ralph, salute March 29 during the annual Remembrance Day tribute to Vietnam War veterans at the Lewiston Armory. “It cost me $50 supply sergeant to get our home records changed, but we had to fly together. My older brother right there was my crew chief,” says Russ Hart. The two Vietnam veterans joined several dozen other service members, along with dignitaries and well-wishers, in a ceremony at the armory, before most headed to Veterans Memorial Park in Lewiston, where a wreath was laid at the Veterans Memorial Stone.

Paige Steffens, right, walks March 31 with her puppy, Daisy Mae, and her friend Brianna Graffam and her dog, Toby, as they pass the Gendron Franco Center at 46 Cedar St. in Lewiston. The women say they live in the same building they like because the dogs can play and get tired. “Our dogs are also best friends,” says Steffens. Graffam’s daughter, Kalecia, is wrapped in a baby sling over her mother. Andree Kehn

Natalie Williamson’s White House cakes win the top prize for creativity April 1 at the Edible Book Festival at Bates College in Lewiston. Made from frosted graham crackers, the cakes illustrate Barack Obama’s book, “A Promised Land.” Williamson, a comptroller at the college, says the contest “remixes my three favorite things, which are creativity, reading books and politics.” She, her husband and their daughter each made a miniature white house using a cookie cutter that Williamson ordered online. “We had a wonderful smell at home for a week,” Williamson says.
