From Lancer to Lobstah: Former Livingston Resident Cooks Up Success in Maine

Article Image Alt Text

By Jeff Friedman
As a product of the Livingston school system, former resident Rick Hirsch must have come across the quote, “Go west, young man,” often credited to American author Horace Greeley. Still, Hirsch, a 1980 graduate of Livingston High School, decided to go north instead to realize his professional and personal destinies in mid-coast Maine.
With a few key stops first during his early years, Hirsch made his way to Damariscotta, Maine to become a respected executive chef and restaurateur known statewide for his culinary virtuosity. Along with his wife and general manager, Jean Kerrigan, he opened the Anchor Inn in Round Pond 27 years ago and his seafood restaurant, the Damariscotta River Grill, in 2004. They continue to own and operate “The Grill” today.
Hirsch smiles when talking about some of his fondest childhood memories from growing up in Livingston in the late 1960's and 1970’s.

Youth Raises Funds To Help Disabled

Adam Levy, a sixth grader at Mt. Pleasant Middle School, has conducted a successful Mitzvah Project for his Bar Mitzvah. Through his hard work, 15 wheelchair accessible picnic tables are being built and installed at Camp ASCCA, a "special camp for children and adults."
Located in Jackson Gap, Alabama, Camp ASCCA is the flagship recreational facility of Easter Seals, providing outdoor recreational opportunities for disabled people 365 days a year.

Levy did more than simply raise money by going to friends and family. He learned that every letter written to a chairman of a publicly traded company must be answered. So he embarked on a major letter writing campaign, complete with photos of the camp.
