Words and deeds



South Portland Mayor Linda Cohen, left, unveils the newly refurbished lectern touched by every person to speak before the city council for more than 25 years. Upon refinishing the handcrafted stand, the city took the opportunity to install a plaque honoring the man who made it, Richard Reed, who worked for the parks and recreation department for 30 years, from 1964 to 1994. Reed died Nov. 7, 2016, at age 84. Observing the nameplate placed in his honor during a dedication ceremony at the April 17 council meeting are his wife Nona and son, Alan.
