Friends of Reiche Group Being Formed
Community members and others interested in the future of Reiche School and Community Center are invited to an organizational meeting for a Friends of Reiche (FOR) advocacy group on Thursday, March 29, 6:30 – 8 p.m., at Reiche. The meeting is sponsored by City Councilor David Marshall and School Committee Representative Robert O’Brien.

Both District 2 representatives anticipate that FOR will provide a place for the various voices that support Reiche to come together—whether their focus be on the school, the branch library, the pool and locker rooms, the gymnasium, the meeting space or other aspects of facility.
Passenger Didn’t Outrun Police

On March 14, at 1:30 AM, police on routine patrol noticed a vehicle whose owner was being sought on a warrant for theft. When the car was stopped on Oxford Street, Brian C. Witham, 39, of Westbrook, jumped out of the passenger side and fled. When the officer caught up to him, a struggle ensued, causing him to be charged with refusing to submit to arrest.
During a search of the vehicle, drugs were discovered in the car, adding another charge of unlawful possession of schedule drugs. Witham was a passenger in the car that was registered to him, which someone else was driving. His chauffeur wasn’t charged with anything.
