Three Maine newspapers restore online comments | Bangor Daily News

[This is what MaineToday Media probably should have done from the beginning rather than eliminate the comments all together. Close monitoring is essential. I was part of the online team that monitored comments on recordnet.com, and some online users simply are looking for a way to be anonymous bullies. That should never be allowed. One more thing, this flip-flop move by MaineToday Media simply makes them look as if they lack the abilty to make carefully consider decisions. That is never good for a business, especially for a newspaper. — KM]

After quake, Winthrop family grows quickly

An expedited adoption process

adds to the brood at

Richard and Carlyn Lenfestey’s home

WINTHROP — Reginald knelt on one of the three light-colored toddler beds lined up near the foot of his parents’ bed.

This one is Richard’s. This one is Sasia’s. This one is Reggie’s.

Though he just turned 3 in December, Reginald clearly relishes his new role of big brother.

On Friday, Richard, 2, and Sasia, 20 months, clung to mom Carlyn Lenfestey, who sat on her bed.

“It’s kind of like the romper room,” she said.

Dad, Matt Lenfestey, surveyed the room and his newly enlarged family, occasionally addressing the children in their native Creole language.

Up until Tuesday, Richard and Sasia lived in a creche, a home for orphans in Lagosette, on Haiti’s north coast.

The Lenfesteys adopted Reginald from the same creche and brought him home to Winthrop last June. Soon thereafter, they started the process of adopting Sasia and Richard.
