Horse Doody Laws About To Change On OOB – Let’s Do The Same In Windsor

Yea yea, I know...horse caca is good fertilizer.  I get it.  However, unless you are putting it your garden...horse poop is, not only smelly, but unsightly as well.  I've seen several people complain on Facebook about the amount of 'droppings' along Route 17 in Windsor/Whitefield.

Should Public Schools Require Uniforms?

Interesting question.  Should public schools in Maine require kids to wear a uniform?  Clearly, uniforms are popular throughout the country because every store I go into has a section that sells the khaki or navy pants and the white shirts.  I often wonder, why don't we enforce this in our schools.

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.

It’s National French Fry Day. Who Has The Best? [POLL]

 

July 13th, we celebrate one of the more summer'ish foods, French fried potatoes. Nah, let's be honest, they are fair game year round. The debate over who has the best likely depends on your fast food habits. I mean, SOME people can grab something  at Burger King, and make a fry run to McDonalds, but doesn't that defeat the purpose of fast food?

Do You Call Going To The Lake ‘The Beach’?

I always laugh when I hear people say they went to the beach.  I'll ask which one they went to?  Popham?  Reid?  OOB?  They respond with Lake St. George or Damariscotta Lake.  To me, that's not the beach.  The beach is the ocean.  But, according to dictionary.com:
