"Main Street" piece on the Friendship Market in Friendship and Gorden's Market in Union. Ian Zeiba and Kellie Lord purchased the Friendship Market in December 1995, but offended local fishermen by saying they smelled like fish bait. Someone dumped fish bait on the steps of the store, and Zeiba and Lord left town in the dark of night. The Masonic Temple in Union, which housed Gorden's Market, burned on August 17, an apparent case of arson. Residents say the loss of the store would kill the village common. The Masons voted to rebuild, but that is conditional on funds being raised within six months.
