It was a big day for J.T. McCusker at the State Capitol. Rep. Jeffrey Evangelos (I-Friendship), hosted McCusker and Emily Trask-EatonĀ  at the Statehouse, where McCusker served as a page for the House of Representatives for the Thursday, Feb. 21 session. McCusker is interested in government and worked hard delivering messages for House members. He is in fifth grade at DeWitt Road Elementary School in Webster, N.Y. His parents are Katherine (Eaton) and Mike McCusker. He is the grandson of Jim and Emmy Trask-Eaton, of Waldoboro and Sue and Tom McCusker, of Bath. The youngster received permission to sit at the governor's desk and on the speaker of the house podium.
