I am the News Director for the Townsquare Media/Augusta-Waterville stations and also the host of our public affairs show, "Issues," Sunday mornings! Make sure you come say "Hi" to me at one of our many live local broadcasts.
I always like talking to the folks from the Family Violence Project. For one thing, I learn a lot. But there is so much positive that comes from them. The positive steps in the right direction and the resources the FVP provides the Central Maine area. Here is what I learned about domestic violence and the holidays.
You may have noticed, it has been really cold the last few days. So, the timing of the Augusta Community Warming Center now being open, is perfect. The center in downtown Augusta is open for individuals and families daily 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Yes, they are open seven days a week, so people can get out of the cold or enjoy some company during the winter season or both!
DID you see the moon?? It is a big plump full moon. To be all official, it will be full on full moon at 4:28am Tuesday December 17th. This moon is call the Full Cold Moon or the Long Nights Moon, both good names for the December full moon.
It has been two years in Ayla Reynolds went missing. The Maine State Police have done 20 searches and are still working the case, but no arrests have been made. Police say someone knows what happened to the child, but no one is telling. Two years! And no one in the house that night has given up the secret.

It has been a year since the Sandy Hook School Shooting. It was December 14th to be exact. I find it hard to believe that with this anniversary on our doorstep there is so little in the news about this tragic event. There have been some changes in Newtown Connecticut and in the debate of gun issues in our nation.
In case you missed it, these guys came across two bucks that were tangled up from fighting. One is already dead, while the other is still alive and fighting. Once they got the pair unlocked, what the live buck did next was kind of remarkable.
