Rufus Hellendale of Harborside died in June after a fall in his beloved woods. A near neighbor of the Nearings, Rufus believed strongly in growing his food and being outside on his small farm – when he wasn’t paragliding above Blue Hill Mountain.

Bill Jones of Peaks Island passed away this spring, also. Bill was excited by ideas, and he and Elaine spent a lot of time working with Wes Jackson at the Land Institute. I always enjoyed getting his notes and letters that tied together his work there and his time here in Maine.
