The poor Bangor Mall has seen some things over the years. Here in the Bangor area, the mall seems like a place that Bangor forgot. There are still a few anchor businesses in there that do extremely well, but there's also a lot of empty store fronts, reminding us just how much in this world is purchased online, as opposed to going out to get it. Inside, they're making great strides all the time to make the mall a pretty decent place to do business.

A look inside The Great Maine Lumberjack Show

TRENTON, Maine (WABI) - “Timber” Tina Scheer’s Great Maine Lumberjack Show brings entertainment and a history lesson to Trenton for its 27th year. “We highlight not only the skills of the modern day lumberjack, but the history of how we got to be here.
