President of Bankrupt M.W. Sewall Fired

Fired from your own company.....


Interesting..............



By The Mainebiz News Staff
A trustee in charge of managing a bankrupt Bath oil company has fired its president and is planning to sell the company's assets.

M.W. Sewall & Co. trustee Mark Stickney has fired President Philip Sewall and has been granted a restraining order and preliminary injunction against him, according to The Times Record.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court put the company, which sells heating oil and operates convenience stores, under trusteeship in October, after it filed bankruptcy in March. Stickney sought the restraining order against Sewall to prevent him from using proprietary company information to set up a competing business, according to The Forecaster.

The order prevents Sewall from having contact with M.W. Sewall employees, customers, funding sources, vendors or other business prospects without Stickney's written approval, and from using any property belonging to the company, according to The Forecaster.

Stickney also filed an order approving a bidding process to "sell substantially all of (M.W. Sewall's) assets" to pay creditors, according to The Times Record. Stickney's attorney, Gayle Allen, told the paper the order will allow Stickney to determine what assets can be sold.

Owls Head Home for Sale -- 24 Crocketts Beach Road $130,000

This is down the road from where I live..........

It's not exactly "yards from the beach"....in fact it's about 3-4 city blocks.

It seems like this house....cottage.....has been flipped 2 or 3 times in the past five years or so.

It's also directly under the Owls Head airport flight path. It's not earth shattering until Travolta and others start landing in June. Then you'll think the end is near!

I also think $130k is pretty steep for a little cabin. But for an out of stater it might be a perfect fit.

Here's the deal....




Year Built: 1930
Square Footage: 1050 sq ft
Lot Size (Acres): .23
Rooms: 6; Bedrooms: 2

Jury Selected for Matinicus Lobsterman Shooting Trial

 

 

Here we go....

This trial could go either way.....from what I've heard the guy he shot was a troublemaker. Plus, apparently the troublemaker was on Vance's boat earlier in the day. for which he was fined.

Anyway, the jury was selected......

 By Stephen Betts

Rockland — Nearly all 130 potential jurors for the trial of a 68-year-old Matinicus lobsterman, accused of shooting another lobsterman last July, said they were aware of the incident. The trial is also for the accused lobsterman's 45-year-old daughter.

And a third of those jurors told the presiding judge that their knowledge would make it difficult to be impartial in the case.

Those were some of the results from jury selection held March 1 in Knox County Superior Court for the pending trial of Edwin Vance Bunker and his daughter Janan K. Miller. The trial is scheduled to begin Monday, March 8. The two will be tried together although the cases are separate and different verdicts could be rendered.

Jury selection took about four hours.
