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.
Parents were scared as word spread about a lockdown at Mill Stream Elementary School in Norridgewock, Monday March 4th. Over 100 parents crowded around a police perimeter and waited to hear news from inside the school.
When Ali Clair of China was in the office recently talking about being the new Miss Maine USA, I learned that in this contest the contestants do not pick their platform, but the overall Miss USA Pageant has its charitable alliances with organizations dedicated to raising awareness for breast and ovarian cancer. Whether it’s encouraging women to get a mammogram or advocating for more ovarian cancer research in D.C., Miss USA is committed to fighting for every woman who is battling breast or ovarian cancer. Nice!

I love learning about new things about the good things that go on in our communities. Here is an AWESOME program. Watch D.O.G.S.! D.O.G.S. stands for ‘Dads Of Great Students’. I had the chance to talk with Chris Rhoda and his daughter Emma and Cathy Gordon, the principal of the Belgrade Central School. Belgrade Central School was the first school in Maine to have a Watch D.O.G.S. program.
This is an interesting idea. The mental health patients who have committed violent criminal acts could be moved out of their group home in neighborhoods in Augusta and back onto property next to the Riverview Psychiatric Center.
Mainers wanting to get their St. Patrick’s Day started early this year just might be able to do that, even on a Sunday. A bill has been introduced to add a few hours to the time people can buy a drink on Sunday March 17.
Mainers who are 70 and older would be allowed to opt out of jury duty if a bill before the Maine lawmakers gets the OK. The Judiciary Committee learned that health issues make it difficult for a lot of older people to serve.
