Return of a friend

Longtime Portland Phoenix readers may remember an intern we had four-plus years ago, a woman who had come over from Germany in 1999-2000 for a year of exchange-student study at Edward Little High School, and then came back when she was in college to spend a few more months in Maine. Her name then waas Claudia Karl, but she has since married and taken the name of her boyfriend, René Topplep. (She wrote this introduction of herself to Phoenix readers when she started with us.)

And now she's on her way back to Maine again - this time, for good! The Lewiston Sun Journal yesterday began a four-part series leading up to her and her husband's return to Maine, now slated for March. Here's the first installment, in what appears to be a first-person account from Claudia herself, called "When Dreams Come True."

We're looking forward to her return!
