    She’s in the right place at the right time. Taylor Quint of Hodgdon was hired July 28 to coach both the varsity cross country and girls basketball teams for the upcoming year.

I know there will be a learning curve and adjustment time, but I am thankful for God’s grace in it all.”

    HOULTON — United States Border Patrol agents arrested an African fugitive last week after he illegally crossed the border into Houlton.
    According to Shelbe Benson-Fuller, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Public Affairs, a Border Patrol agent from the Houlton Station responded Aug. 3 to a citizen’s report of a suspicious person walking near the international boundary at Houlton.
    The agent responded and encountered a man matching the description by the citizen. Upon questioning, the agent learned the male subject, Jean Leonard Teganya, 42, a native of Rwanda, had entered the United States illegally by walking across the international boundary from Canada. He was subsequently taken into custody and transported to the Houlton station for further processing in violation of “8 USC 1325, Entry Without Inspection.”
    Teganya’s last known address was Laval, Quebec.

    HOULTON — If the first six months are any indication, a plan to share police coverage between the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department and the Maine State Police has yielded positive results.
    Back in January, the law enforcement unit of the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office underwent a significant transformation. For 12 years, the Sheriff’s Office had a “call sharing agreement” with the state police. Previously, Aroostook County was divided into five separate patrol zones. The Sheriff’s Department was responsible for one of those zones, while the Maine State Police patrolled the other four. The state police had a larger coverage area because its police force is larger.
