The Roberts Trap is Sprung

By:  Bill Dunne
One of the most overlooked aspects of the year just ended is the vindication of Chief Justice John Roberts -- a vindication that showed up as the national catastrophe known as ObamaCare got rolling.  Roberts may have also doomed Hillary Clinton's chance to live in the White House again... click here to read whole editorial

Fort Fairfield Journal, November 12, 2014


   Harvest Market celebrated its tenth year anniversary of being in business on November 1.  Harvest Market is owned and operated by Keith and Valerie Bernier from Fort Fairfield.

   While undergoing some changes over the past decade, the kitchen has remained the heart of the business.  With a full list of breakfast, lunch and dinner items Harvest Market has specialized in both a baking and grill menu.  Their pizza, which features a custom homemade sauce, is loved by their customers who order it as take-out or eat it there at the store’s dining area.

   Valerie says she and Keith thank God for blessing them with the business and the fact that they have always had a great staff to help them out over the years.  “Faith, food and fellowship are the recipe that makes Harvest Market,” she said. “I strive to be a blessing to our patrons every day.”

   Phyllis Rochford is one of Harvest Market’s longtime customers.  “I’ve been coming here since they opened.  My favorite meal is the cabbage rolls,” said Rochford.  “Everything here is good.  I especially love talking with all the people who come here.”

   Theresa Lown is another long-time Harvest Market customer.  She says she had been eating at Harvest Market for the past eight years.  “The people are just so friendly, it’s a small town atmosphere, you get to catch up on all the local news and everybody comes through.  You get to see everybody when you come here.”

   Valerie says when you like what you’re doing, it’s not really a job.  “We enjoy serving our customers and are eager to come to work every day.  It’s not really a job, it’s a lifestyle.”

  As a truly hometown business, Valerie says it’s all about heart, “I have the heart of the town in my heart.”
