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 was at KVCC for a class recently and was talking with a classmate. I discovered she had been a ballet dancer in Boston at one point. (Totally explains her graceful movements) But, she had also danced the flamenco! Then she tried to teach me some very basic moves. That is where it all went wrong, very wrong.
I took a road trip today to Norway. I was doing a favor for a friend. BUT on the way back, after a little shoe shopping, I found myself at the Oxford Casino. I had not been before and since I was in the neighborhood, I had to check it out.
Gov. Paul LePage is signing the bill to allow bars to open and serve alcohol a few hours earlier when St. Patrick's Day falls on a Sunday. That is what happens this weekend. Sunday is March 17th and that is St. Paddy’s Day.
OH what a treat! I had an amazing afternoon with Samantha Dyer at ‘Rumor Has It’ in Augusta. Having a skin treatment is SO relaxing and feels so good. Samantha Dyer is an amazing esthetician. You can have the same experience and save doing it.
There was an interesting public forum this week on the University of Maine at Augusta campus. It was about hunger issues. Yes, there was some disagreement about the role of government in addressing hunger, but state and local communities can do a lot to help.
Maine lawmakers basically killed the plan to move mental health patients who have committed violent criminal acts back near the old AMHI campus. That would have moved them out of residential neighborhoods around Augusta.
Bullying has been in the news a lot recently. It mostly seems to focus on kids. And, well it should, growing up can be hard enough. Add in bullying into the mix and it is so much harder. Until recently, I thought it was not an adult problem, except maybe as a parent as a child faced these issues. BUT, I am wrong. It can happen in the lives of adults. Let me tell you, it is super annoying and disheartening.
Augusta native and philanthropist Elsie Viles passed away this weekend. She was 98. I never met Mrs. Viles, but I was thinking about her this weekend while I was at the Viles Arboretum in Augusta. I did not know at that time of her passing.
Viles Arboretum in Augusta is one of the most beautiful places on any day in any season. If you have not taken a nice afternoon to explore the beautiful grounds and planting and collection, you are missing something special. But this winter they have been offering dog sled rides on Sundays. I can tell you, it is "paw-some"!
