The most recent happening with Patrick's (the boyfriend) cancer look like he will be in a pattern for the next four or five months. Patrick has apparently done all the ‘other stuff’ he needed to do and now has to just focus on his chemotherapy. The other stuff included a trip to Boston to visit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Have you heard about the ‘Ban Bossy’ movement? It is about not labeling young women as bossy or pushy for being assertive or a leader. I know that some may think this is non-issue, but I can tell you those messages as a young person make impression that one may not even realize until much later in life. Check out this video about 'Ban Bossy'.
Healthy Maine Streets is a program that started in Skowhegan and has grown to almost 20 communities in Maine. It has also caught the attention of many other around the nation! Healthy Maine Streets is a taking on economic health and worker heath and how they can do hand in hand. I had a chance to learn more about the program overall and how Gardiner (and others) are making Healthy Maine Streets!
This is sweet Juliet and she is looking for her new home. This spayed domestic short hair kitty has lots of love to give. Juliet is about two and came in as a stray, so they do not know much about her past. What they do know is since she has been at the HSWA Juliet has been in one of the ‘cat rooms’ with other kitty cats waiting for homes and she has been fine. As you can see by her photo, she likes her cat-naps in the sunshine. Her adoption fee is $125 includes her neutering and all her shots. Juliet is at the Humane Society Waterville Area.
The Harold Alfond Foundation (HAF) has decided that ALL babies born as Mainers will now automatically be awarded a $500 Alfond grant for college. Before this point, parents needed to fill out a little paperwork for the NextGen account for the baby to get the grant. Now, every Maine baby is in!
I love this. There are 8,000 markers that define the border between the sister nations of Canada and the United States, establishing the 'no touching zone'. ( MOM, Canada is touching me again!!) This video will explain a lot of the 'whys' of all of that.
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.
