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.
For anyone who has been lucky enough to not experience domestic or family violence I think the question is so easy to ask, 'Why does she stay'? The reality of why someone stays in an unhealthy situation is as varied as the situations. Sunday mornings all this year we will take a look a violence in our homes and families. The week the question was 'why does she stay?' Here are answers from two central Maine women.
The Franklin County Sheriffs hope their new anonymous tip line will bring an increase in information and help fight crime and under age drinking. According to the KJ, the tip line is anonymous; tipsters can notify officials of crime and give them something to investigate.
Do you ever meet someone you just HAVE to hug? I did. Her name is Hallie Twomey. That good-looking young man pictured is her son, CJ. Hallie is the Auburn woman and CJ committed suicide in April of 2010. As part of her 'journey' the 'Scatter CJ' movement developed.
I know a fair amount about retirement living. I had great interest in the retirement community my mother had chosen. It made me think about such matters for my own future. I have to admit, the communities I know about are wonderful. If it were not for that age limit, I would consider moving now! But, alas, I am still too young!
The Augusta Dog Park has a problem with what I call the ‘poo-poo heads’. They are the people who do not pick up after their dogs. As a result the Augusta Dog Park is temporarily shut down. It was a sad day for the all-volunteer Augusta Dog Park Committee to make the recommendation to the city. But it was needed. There was the dog waste and some had been spotted with worms. So the park is closed until spring and a good cleaning can take place.
Dogs are amazing. This is an ad for guide dogs from Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation showing the assistance a trained dog can offer in helping a military veteran who is coping with severe war related trauma. OH the tag line? "We not only help people who cannot see, but also those who have seen too much"....Ya, that got me going! Pass the tissues, please.
