DOVER-FOXCROFT — One final football game. That’s what Saturday’s 29th annual Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Classic represents for most of the players: a last chance to strap on the pads and enjoy the camaraderie many athletes believe is unique to football. “It’s getting the chance to suit up one more time and playing with teammates that I haven’t met, or with teammates that I’ve played against,” said Arlo Pike of Bonny Eagle, who won the Gaziano Memorial Award in January as the state’s top defensive lineman. “So far it’s been an awesome experience.” Related Headlines Lobster Bowl: Coaching legend Dick Mynahan happy to have one more game Search photos available for purchase: Photo Store → Players come to the end of their football road from different perspectives.

I am writing about the plight of our dairy farmers, as per the Sun Journal article in the July 2 Portland Press Herald (“Sudden change threatens future for longtime dairy farm,” Page B1). It seems to me that Maine should make it a priority to support all Maine farmers. They work very hard to provide food and dairy products for our homes and should not be shut out by the callousness of a conglomerate. I am willing to pay extra for Maine farm products if it ensures that the farmers can raise and support their families.

I do not want my milk and farm products coming from out of state. We are losing more Maine farmers each day, and this is not acceptable. … [Read more...] about Letter to the editor: Losing Maine farmers is not acceptable

The National Weather Service warned that this weekend could be the hottest of the summer along the coast -- and it looks like that forecast is panning out. A heat advisory will be in effect both today and Sunday for areas along the Alabama and northwest Florida coasts, including Mobile, Baldwin and Escambia counties in Alabama. The air temperatures will climb into the lower to mid-90s today and Sunday, but it's the dew points that are making things particularly awful. Dew points hit as high as 86 -- 86 -- degrees yesterday (Fairhope was the winner there) which raised the heat index as high as 115, according to the weather service in Mobile. Here's the proof from yesterday: Similar conditions will be possible today, according to the weather service. But there is a chance for rain that could provide a brief respite. But a few storms could come along too. Isolated to scattered storms will be possible into the afternoon hours, according to the weather service, and some of them … [Read more...] about The heat is downright gross along the Alabama coast
Alta • Mount Baldy presents some of the trickiest avalanche-control problems in North America. Twenty-three chutes fall from the rounded treeless summit’s north face, each posing a threat to Alta Ski Area’s Ballroom and connected terrain at the top of Collins Bowl. For years, workers at the popular Utah resort have used explosive projectiles fired from a 105 mm howitzer and nonrifled guns known as Avalaunchers to blast down avalanches. But now ski area managers fear the use of military ordnance may soon end and are looking for an alternative. With the blessing of the U.S. Forest Service, which administers much of the land used by the ski area renowned for its old-school charms and harrowing terrain, Alta insists the best option is a small tram that would ferry up patrollers to deliver charges by hand. The proposal has sparked a backlash from environmentalists and even some of Alta’s own devoted skiers, who are campaigning to “Keep Baldy … [Read more...] about Why is Utah’s Alta Ski Area pushing for a tram up iconic Mount Baldy?
