Dr. Peter McGuire

Dr. Peter McGuire founded the Oasis Health Care Network, providing "free quality medical care with dignity" to the uninsured adult population of the Greater Mid-Coast area, many of whom are working poor.

Founded in 1992, today Oasis sees over 1,700 patients annually, has its own office space and exam rooms, and in addition to acute care, provides specialty clinics for the management of chronic illness. A team of more than 100 medical and dental volunteers provide health care, dental care, laboratory and pharmaceutical services.

Dr. McGuire's vision, dedication, and perseverance leverages a $150,000 annual operating budget (coming entirely from local generosity) into well over $1.5 million in medical services. Dr. McGuire's care, concern, and courage have measurably improved the lives of thousands of men and women in the MidCoast region.

Wiscasset church gets its steeple back

WISCASSET, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- People in Wiscasset can look up at a familiar skyline again --- the congregational church has its steeple back.

The landmark church is located next to the historic county courthouse. It's actually the third church on that spot. The previous one burned down. This church and its steeple were built in 1909.

A century of rain took its toll on the spire of the steeple.

About year ago, the painting crew found the spire was all rotted. That began a major fundraising effort, which so far has collected $250,000.

That was enough to pay for steeplejack George Burgess and his crew to demolish the old spire and have an exact copy made out of fiberglass. It was gently lowered into place Monday, and church members were thrilled to see it.

A look at news coming up for the week of Monday, October 17

(NEWS CENTER) - A look at news coming up for the week of Monday, October 17

MONDAY - Through the course of the week there will be a chance for people to get free dental care in Machias. Dental care providers from NYU's College of Dentistry, the Washington County Children's Program and Caring Hands of Maine have put the clinic together. This is the 3rd free clinic to serve the area. 1,000+ children and adults have been served by the other two. The clinic will be held at the Lee Pellon Event Center.

Wiscasset residents prove they want the Raceway to stay

WISCASSET, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- In a last ditch effort to save what was once known as the "Center of Speed" in Maine, volunteers in the Wiscasset community organized races at the Wiscasset Raceway today.

This event allows the town noise ordinance to be effective for at least another year; something that needs to be in place to attract potential buyers.  An estimated 2,000 spectators sat in the bleachers to watch up to 180 race cars circle the track. But these drivers may not get paid. Admission fees will go to sponsors first, then whatever is left over will be divided among the drivers.

"Hopefully someone sitting here in the grandstands that sees that this place can work," Dale Chadborne of Woolwich, said. "The pits are full, every pad has got a car sitting on it. People are walking around that we haven't seen in years."
