You Can Say You’re A Real Mainer If You Have THIS In You Vehicle

Search the back of your vehicle, and I am guessing that somewhere, either under the driver's seat or wayyy in the back or in the trunk, you will find one of the true testaments that make a Mainer. It measures 11.5 by 15 inches. It is the iconic Maine Atlas and Gazetteer. It's 96 pages long and full of adventure. Yours probably is pretty beaten up with coffee spills and other stains of a well-traveled Mainer. Many of the pages are ripped, and you've probably scotch or duct-taped it together a few times. I know a few of you have ripped part of the back cover off to start a campfire. You see, back in the day, before Google Maps, back in 2005, we used to have to use PAPER MAPS to get around our great state. And the Maine Atlas and Gazetteer was pretty much "standard issue" starting in the mid-1970s. And guess what? Even though all our cars are wired to satellites and GPS, you can still BUY the Gazetteer!

A Man From Bangor Enlightened Me About Juneteenth

An unexpected visitor that day set me straight. I had no idea what Juneteenth was all about when I was told that James Varner was at the front desk here at the radio station. I also had no idea who he was or what he was here for, a situation that our receptionist seemed to take great pleasure putting me into on a regular basis.

Deer and Horse Flies Have Emerged Early and Are Ready To Inflict Pain On Maine Residents

Maine summers can be short and sweet, leaving people eager to get outside when the weather is finest as much as they can. That short season isn't just for humans, it's also for insects. Maine is home to plenty of pests, from black flies to ticks to the unofficial "state bird", the mosquito. But there's another pest that doesn't get enough attention for pain they inflict. That would be the horse fly and deer fly and unfortunately for the people of Vacationland, they've emerged early this year.

I read a random article recently, about a pizza place in Maryland that was putting those periodical cicadas on pizza.

Hey Maine–Move Over, Will Ya?

It's something I think people sometimes forget. That has to be the reason. Because if they remembered, I don't think people would behave the way that they do. First responders are people, too. They have families. They have parents and spouses and kids that love them. And at the end of the day, they want nothing more than to return home to their loved ones, just as you or I would.

Bangor Humane Society Needs Your Help Keeping The Pets Comfy

I have to say, the best thing that's happened to me so far in 2021, is that my wife and I adopted a dog. Neko is a such a good boy, and I honestly can't imagine my life without him. And although we didn't adopt him from the Humane Society, it made it clear to me how much animal shelters need our help to keep doing what they do.
