This Adorable Dog Has Been in a Maine Shelter for 395 Days and Needs a Forever Home

While adopting pets can be one of the most satisfying and rewarding experiences people can have, there always seems to be a handful of pets that fall through the cracks through the process. Everyone loves kittens and puppies, and even younger cats and dogs that show plenty of youthful exuberance. But often times, pets of a certain age are overlooked and left behind, stuck to live out their days in a shelter without a family to call their own here in Maine.

Happy Retirement to One of Maine’s Best Conductors, Mr. Farnham

To the Bangor Band, he's Conductor Curvin, but to me, he will always be my high school band conductor, Mr. Farnham. Wasn't Curvin Farnham at the University of Maine, As Well?. I was sorry that I had to miss last night's Bangor Band concert at Maine Savings Amphitheater when I learned that it was the conductor's last performance with them. He's retiring and it's a well-deserved rest for a man who has had a huge impact on Maine's music scene. In the later years of his career, he taught at the University of Maine in Orono and then, after retiring from the college, became conductor of the Bangor Band.

Did You Know Someone Is Making Wicked Good Chocolate In Hampden?

Sometimes working from home can be awesome. At the beginning of the pandemic, I worked from home for a few months. Heck, my wife worked from home for the better part of a year. While I enjoyed the novelty of it, ultimately I'd rather be in the office. Mostly because of the inherent technical challenges of doing live radio from my house. Otherwise, I'd have wanted to do it forever.
