Jere Mead checks his Scrabble score. (Photo by Ellen Miller)
Jere Mead, Latin teacher at CCHS, placed second in the top division at the Cape Cod National Scrabble Tournament held at the Seacrest Resort Hotel in Falmouth last weekend. Eighty-two players in five divisions played 12 games of Scrabble. Among the words seen on Mead's boards were "aequorin," "tosh," "beryl" and "dejecta." Ellen Miller of Indian Hill Road played in the second-highest division, placing tenth in the 18-player group.

For a look at the world of competitive Scrabble, tune in on Sunday, November 9, at 3:30 p.m. when ESPN broadcasts the Scrabble All-Stars, an invitation-only competition held in Providence in August. Jere Mead was selected as one of the 24 best players in the world to compete for a $50,000 first prize. See how he did!

Joe Antognoni of Evergreen Lane, a member of the Concord Lions Club, wishes to thank the citizens of Carlisle for the donation of over 1,000 pairs of eyeglasses which were left off at the Gleason Public Library. They are processed and distributed all over the world to those in need. The little helper pictured on the left is Alyssa Fliter, Antognoni's great-granddaughter.
