    No, this refers to Bill Cohen, former Maine senator and secretary of defence under Clinton.

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    I spent quite a bit of time looking online at pictures trying to find this house. When I then tried to at least identify the style of house, I really, really looked at the picture... there is no front door! It should be right in the center where the columns are, but there is NO door.

    I haven't been able to find it, either. I'm thinking a good possibility for location is the point of interest that I haven't accounted for yet -- the one in Northeast Harbor. The largest place I could find was the Asticou Inn, but that doesn't really look like the drawing too much. I had considered Jordan Pond House, but I think your idea for the Old Woman drawing makes more sense.

    Good thought on the possibility of this location being the point of interest in the Northeast Harbor area. The old man says "Private land!" The point of interest there is the only one not in Acadia park.

    The only thing I could find of interest where that point of interest sign is located is the Asticou Inn and the Asticou Azalea Garden thereabouts.

    Same here. It's odd that it really looks so different than the picture though.

    If the story is supposed to mesh with the drawings, then this building can't be in Asticou. Fandango leaves this mansion and heads south on a carriage road to a gatehouse. This would be impossible from Asticou.

    Has anyone gotten anywhere on determining who the man is, or what the estate is?

    If the newspaper is referring to William S. Cohen's run for senate, that would put the year of the newspaper at about 1972.

    If it refers to William S. "Cohen to run" the defense department, that would have been news in late 1996/early 1997.

    The Downeast Times wasn't started until 2001 and ceased operation about a year ago.

    All of those dates are before the paper began. And a newspaper has its name on the first page, not on an inside page. Something isn't right.
