Bee Battle Aug 15 2017

Bee Battle: Cody Jinks vs. Scotty McCreery

Can anyone stop Cody Jinks? The Texas singer destroyed Walker Hayes by 95%. With one more week before retirement, he faces a new challenger. This week, the "I'm Not The Devil" singer (who plays Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend) takes on former American Idol Scotty McCreery. The singer, with Maine ties, brings out his new song "Five More Minutes." It's a song he wrote for his late grandfather, who worked at the Portsmouth Navel Shipyard. If he wins, maybe the life-long Boston Red Sox fan can celebrate by joining us on our nearly sold out Red Sox Road-trip.

What Is Your First Sign Of Fall? (Poll)

The signs of Autumn are all here: All this week, we're giving away tickets to the 199th Skowhegan Fair. Yep, like or not, fair season has arrived! While the temps are recovering for the second half of the week, I caught myself closing the bedroom windows a few nights ago. Aside from rain, they're generally open/cracked most of summer.
