Dear Editor,As a Wilmington senior citizen who watches the Selectmen meetings weekly, I would like to offer my strong support and endorsement for Greg Bendel. He was elected to the Board of Selectmen three years ago and has shown by his action, knowledge, and deep concern for ALL of the residents of Wilmington.As an educator and coach, he is well aware of the needs of our children. Having served on the Wilmington Housing Authority, he is concerned and motivated to help our citizens. Raising a young family in Wilmington, he is aware of all the problems we share and all the great things Wilmington has to offer.Greg is available and makes it a priority to attend as many of the meetings and functions around town, knowing first hand of the wants and needs of the people. Along with Kevin Caira, who was elected to the Board three years ago and serves as Chairman this year, they have conducted the meetings in a very open, caring and transparent way.During public comments, Mr. Caira, in my opinion, is very generous, allowing everyone to speak and handles the sometimes unreasonable behavior with courtesy, civility, and patience. Mr. Caira has been involved in so many activities and volunteering in our town, including coaching Little League and Wilmington High School football and softball. And there are so many others.He was Vice Chairman of the Yentile Famr Recreational Development Committee, founding member and Vice President of the Wildcat Alumni and Friends Association member, and former Lodge President of the Wilmington Sons of Italy. (Also Past President and current National President of the Sons of Italy’s Committee for Social Justice.) And many more achievements for both Kevin and Greg to mention here.Both of these gentlemen are serving for the right reasons… and that is for you, for me, and for ALL of the townspeople of Wilmington.I would ask you to join me on April 27 and vote for Greg Bendel and Kevin Caira.Please know how very important your vote is.Thank you,Marilyn CoxLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Enlarge ImageMmm, wagon. BMW BMW revealed its new 3 Series Wagon on Wednesday, but don’t get your checkbook out just yet. Last we heard, BMW isn’t planning to offer the longroof 3 Series in the United States anymore. And that’s a shame, since this one looks to be a seriously nice package.Up front, the 3 Series Wagon — or Touring, as it’s known in BMW parlance — shares its fascia with the G20-generation 3 Series Sedan. Around back, the wagon’s taillights use a similar design to the sedan’s, and the angular rear glass kinks nicely into the overall shape of the hatch.Speaking of the hatch, all 3 Series Wagons come with an electronically operated tailgate, and you can set how far it opens in the car’s iDrive infotainment system. BMW says the luggage compartment is wider than before, with both a taller and wider loading aperture, making it easier to load cargo. The back seats have a standard 40:20:40 split, and can be folded flat. Maximum cargo capacity is 53 cubic feet, which is about the same as a compact SUV.Enlarge ImageInside, the Touring is the same as any other new 3 Series. BMW A total of seven engines will be offered in Europe. The gas-fed 330i and M340i xDrive variants that we get on the US-spec sedan carry over, and a third, less powerful 320i is also available. On the diesel front, buyers can select engines ranging from 150 to 265 horsepower in output — or more importantly, 320 to 580 pound-feet of torque. For folks who might tow, the base 320i Touring can pull 3,500 pounds, while all other versions can handle 4,000.For front passengers, the 3 Series Touring is identical to the 3 Series Sedan — the design, switchgear and multimedia systems all carry over unchanged. The most robust iDrive 7 setup features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.2-inch central screen, with BMW’s voice-controlled AI assistant on board.BMW says customers will be able to preorder the new 3 Series Touring this month, ahead of its official on-sale date in September. Again, it’s unclear if this shaggin’ wagon will ever be offered in the US, but for now, we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
