REVERE — In her three-bedroom duplex with a sloping backyard overlooking the rolling hills of the neighborhood, Patricia Carbajal thought about the life she’d worked so hard to build and everything that was now at risk. Curled up in her bed was her 4-year-old daughter, Camila, who wanted to snuggle. Downstairs was the television that Patricia wanted to be near. She was anxiously awaiting word on whether the Trump administration would cancel the program that has allowed her to live and work in the United States — a status given to her and tens of thousands of other Honduran immigrants nearly two decades ago, regardless of whether they had come to the United States legally.“You want to go downstairs and watch the news with mommy?” Patricia asked. “Vamos a cocinar. I have to cook.”What she really had to do was listen to the news. And so, curled up for a few minutes more with Camila, she strained to hear the Univision report on the TV downstairs.So … [Read more...] about After 19 years, the US has become home.

This little lamb went to market. Also, when he was just 2 days old, to the Patagonia outlet in Freeport, Treat’s in Wiscasset and Rising Tide in Damariscotta. He is a bottle-fed lamb from Toddy Pond Farm in Monroe and his name is Nugget. “A little boy at Patagonia asked me, ‘What is his name?’ ” said farmer Greg Purinton-Brown, who along with his wife, Heide, are serving as substitute parents to Nugget. He told the boy the lamb’s full name, Nugget McFluffyhead. The boy looked up at Purinton-Brown, who was wearing the lamb in a bag not unlike a baby sling. “And he said, ‘What is his middle name?’ ”The cuteness overload aside, this is a practical matter. Nugget was the third lamb born in a set of triplets on the afternoon of March 22. By the next day, he’d been rejected by his mother, a part East Friesian, in favor of the other two lambs. A ewe only has two teats, and the other triplets were getting there first. “He … [Read more...] about Here’s the story behind the lamb being carried around Waldo County like a baby
Longtime television critic explains how honesty was crucial to everything Bochco did Wrap Staff, provided by Published 5:47 pm, Tuesday, April 3, 2018 Image 1of/1 CaptionClose Image 1 of 1 Tom Shales: How Steven Bochco Cut the Bull and Reinvented the Cop Show 1 / 1 Back to Gallery A common though dubious assumption about television these days is that it’s taken a great leap upward in quality, attracting a better class of creative writers, directors and producers. There is less mediocrity and more excellence, it is said; less monotony and more diversity. In other words, one might say, there are more writers and producers like Steven Bochco — even though Steven Bochco himself is, sadly, gone. The brilliant, iconoclastic writer died of leukemia on Sunday, and television lost one of its bravest independent thinkers. Bochco was a man bustling with ideas; over the years, he used many of those ideas to shake television up and … [Read more...] about Tom Shales: How Steven Bochco Cut the Bull and Reinvented the Cop Show
Q: I’m in my 20s, and my partner and I are thinking about becoming parents, but the potential expenses seem overwhelming. How can I afford to have kids? A: The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s handy but terrifying Cost of Raising a Child Calculator told me the average two-parent household in the U.S. earning less than $61,530 a year spends $11,850 to raise a child in his or her first year. Such a big number might make you think having a baby is impossible financially. But don’t get discouraged. I’d guess that very few parents went to the trouble of saving every penny they’d need before the baby arrived, especially since 37 percent of U.S. pregnancies were unplanned between 2006 and 2010, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Ideally, everyone’s loaded by the time they have their kids, but that’s hardly ever the case,” says Rachel Podnos, a certified financial planner at Wealth Care LLC in Washington, D.C.
