Saturday Chris Carleton of Portland got his Toyota Tacoma detailed by us and is sure glad he did. His text to me yesterday said, "It looked great! Cleaner than when i bought the truck!" Chris was a referral from Hannah Preble (his g/f), and Hannah was a referral from Beth Dembia and the crew over at her office who I have done business with. Nobody in Southern Maine offers the quality of detail we do (using the quality of product we offer with the level of skill we bring to the table) for the price we charge. To sweeten the pot, we also offer pick up/drop off. We picked Chris's Tacoma up at his office and returned it back before 5pm on Saturday when he left. Nothing is worse than having to set up rides in a situation like that, so we take that hassle away! From the engine bay and door jams to every nook and cranny of her interior, we do it all. Clearly stated, we offer the absolute best detail in Southern Maine at the guaranteed lowest price. The best for significantly less is a pretty serious claim ...

(Via Maine Democratic Party) Maine Dems Rebuke Rep. Volk’s Comment on Minimum Wage Earners in Maine AUGUSTA, Maine - The Maine Democratic Party issued the following statement in response to comments made by Republican State Representative Amy Volk in an interview with MPBNtoday. In the article, Rep. Volk states her opposition to raising the minimum wage, even going as to far to claim that there aren’t “many” adults in Southern Maine that currently make the minimum wage: "I don't believe that there are many adults out there - particularly in southern Maine, in my part of the state - working for minimum wage.” – Republican State Rep. Amy Volk   The Maine Department of Labor (DOL) Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that in 2012,there were 20,000 Maine workers making the state minimum wage of $7.50 an hour or less. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.A recent report by the Center for American Progress Action Fund finds that a minimum wage increase to $10.10 an hour, as propo ...
The Eastern Connecticut State University baseball team continues its ascent in the New England Baseball Coaches’ Poll, moving up another spot to No. 2 in the fifth weekly poll, released Monday.

Student Led Protests at University of Southern Maine over Mass Layoffs of Tenured Professors
My letter: To whom it may concern: Before going on to pursue my J.D. at William & Mary Law School (recently ranked in the country by the U.S. News and World Report), I graduated summa *** laude from the University of Southern Maine. Though I left USM with all of the skills necessary to compose a formulaic, businesslike letter, and though I am certainly capable of expressing my displeasure in a calm and measured tone, desperate times call for unconventional methods, no? Surely you agree. In May of 2011, I was awarded a bachelor of the arts in… what? Perhaps you should venture a guess. I will give you some time, and—because we do not know each other well—I will also give you a hint: it was not business administration or accounting. I will be the first to admit that I am an unconventional student; my experience cannot be calculated with any known algorithm, nor can it be neatly crammed into any of the tidy little boxes on whatever spreadsheet you manipulated in selecting which people and programs were ...

I am a runner, but since last May, I have been unable to run. Finally, after knee surgery in January - not a running injury - I ran today. The past week or so, I tried to run a few steps and my knee was still not cooperating. Each time I ran though, it seemed a little easier and I could run a little farther. Today, I covered a mile and a quarter running a block and walking a block. I think my comeback has begun. I am grateful and thankful. Running is much more to a runner than exercise. It is part of their soul. Though my story is not nearly as dramatic, Darcy Wakefield, a victim of ALS wrote this about missing the experience of running: Darcey Wakefield died December 12, 2005 at age 35 from ALS. Wakefield taught English at Southern Maine Community College and published two books, including I Remember Running: The Year I Got Everything I Ever Wanted -- and ALS. Her essay: "I remember running like I remember the sun-filled beach days of my childhood. I remember running like many remember their first love t ...

Good morning from The Castle in sunny Southern Maine!
Southern Maine has some very diverse xcountry ski venues. One very attractive ski area is Harris Farm in Dayton which is just a short drive inland off I-195 near Old Orchard Beach. We arrived on a Monday afternoon and we found a few other skiers out enjoying the sunny yet windy conditions on this beautiful dairy farm. After about an hour-long ski, we had the chance to meet Bill Harris whose family operates this very friendly and rolling facility. They offer an excellent mix of easy and hard trails with a well-equipped ski shop featuring rentals and sales. Customers were streaming in to buy eggs and milk as well as other products from the dairy. They produce a large selection of maple sugar products too. No sign of any cows on skis however. Overall it was a very scenic spot that offers a relaxing atmosphere and well-maintained trails. So check it out. I am glad we did.

A huge thank you goes out to Pat Guerette for organizing and promoting the alumni fundraising events at today’s opening meet at the field house.

Holy Cross Coach Jett Elfonzo won the women’s shot put. Her distance became the field house record and a masters womens field house record. After a masked spiderman (who turned out to be Paul Kelley) set a blistering pace for the first few laps of the mile, Paul Rupprecht won the mile race in a crowded field. Paul’s fellow New Balance Boston athlete Erin Dromgoole won the women’s race. Both times were field house records. Cindy McNett set the masters women’s mile field house record.

Trash Fish Dinner of NH!!! Join chefs from around the Seacoast area of New Hampshire and Southern Maine for cocktails and a delicious multi-course dinner featuring local seafood you may never have even heard of! Why: Local chefs are concerned about the health of the Atlantic and of local fishing communities, hit hard by catch limit cutbacks to imperiled groundfish like Cod and the recently announced closure of the Gulf of Maine shrimp fishery. While we believe that there is really no such thing as a “Trash Fish,” historically the name has been applied species of fish that weren’t worth pursuing or bringing to market by fishermen. The chefs will show that these fish are anything but trash, and that the decision to help save our oceans and our fishing communities by choosing undervalued species, can be a delicious choice. Who’s Cooking: Evan Mallett-Black Trumpet (Chefs Collaborative Board Member) Rob Martin-The Oaks (Chefs Collaborative New Hampshire Local Leader) Mark Segal-Demeters Steakhouse. (C ...
Guitarist Johnny Hiland was born with nystagmus, a medical condition causing involuntary eye movement and rendering him legally blind. He grew up in a trailer home in Woodland, ME, and took to the guitar at a young age. At eight, he joined his family's band, the Three Js, which toured New England under the auspices of the Down East Country Music Association. At ten, Hiland won the Talent America contest, entitling him to a performance in New York City. In high school, his musical tastes extended beyond bluegrass to the guitar rock of players like Joe Satriani and Eddie Van Halen. After high school, he attended the University of Southern Maine as a history major, but ultimately dropped out to become a professional musician. In 1996, he moved to Nashville, where he quickly attracted attention at local clubs, earning a residency at the World-Famous Turf and, when that club was destroyed by a tornado in 1998, at Robert's Western Wear with Don Kelly's band. He backed Gary Chapman at the Ryman Auditorium, home ...

Throughout the summer, Brother Jon Wheeler, S.S.E. will be working in the Edmundite Missions and keeping a blog about his experience. I will post his blog entries for you to enjoy! Here is a post from Yesterday: A Small World One of my favorite things we do here is to visit home-bound folks. You always meet such loving and fascinating people. Today Fr. Steve and I headed out to Marion, Alabama to go chat with a lady who used to go to Our Lady Queen of Peace and bring her communion. She is 93 and sharp as a tack. Interesting fact about her: she is one of the few remaining veterans of the the Army Nursing Corp during World War II. Crazy! She had been stationed in both Italy and North Africa, so she had seen the worst of it. As it turns out, one of her first assignments was actually at Fort Devens in Massachusetts. When she told me this, I blurted out, "HEY! That's in my parents town!" As we talked a bit more I learned she was from Southern Maine and quite near to my aunt and cousins, who reside in ...
...This is what happens when you turn educating our youth over to special interest groups.

Students Taught about Homosexual Foreplay Disguised As Tolerance kids scared A school district in Maine is apologizing after middle school students learned about homosexual foreplay during what was supposed to be a “Diversity Day” presentation “I don’t want my child taught heterosexual foreplay, let alone homosexual foreplay,” said an outraged parent Kristy Howard. The principal of Gorham Middle School sent a letter to parents apologizing for the graphic nature of the presentation by PRYSM, Proud Rainbow Youth of Southern Maine. “They went beyond the scope of our intentions and discussed topics that we do not deem appropriate for our middle school,” Robert Riley wrote in a letter obtained by The American Journal. “We do not intend to expose them to idea ...

I'll be playing in Portsmouth, NH this Saturday night at THE BLUE MERMAID! 8PM to 11PM. I hope to see some familiar faces! Six years ago I was living in Southern Maine for the summer and would go to The Blue Mermaid on Wednesday nights for the open mic. That summer is when I started writing songs and each week I shared a new song I had written - all songs from that summer became my first album: Back on the Train. I'm looking forward to playing old songs from the days of The Blue Mermaid Open Mics as well as some brand new songs. The food is fantastic, the crowd is fun, and Portsmouth is an adorable town to visit. See you there!!! :)

The following is a letter written by one of our supporters that was read to the North Berwick Planning Board at the January 24, 2013 Public Hearing.

Keene needs to win to get into the tournament. RIC's women lost at Southern Maine yesterday. Fingers crossed for an ECAC bid.

This newly elected world wonder was built along China's northern border over many centuries to keep out invading Mongol tribes. Constructed between the fifth century B.C. and the 16th century, the Great Wall is the world's longest human-made structure, stretching some 4,000 miles (6,400 kilometers). The best known section was built around 200 B.C. by the firstemperor of China, Qin Shi Huang Di. Petra, Jordan Perched on the edge of the Arabian Desert, Petra was the capital of the Nabataean kingdom of King Aretas IV (9 B.C. to A.D. 40). Petra is famous for its many stone structures such as a 138-foot-tall (42-meter-tall) temple carved with classical facades into rose-colored rock. The ancient city also included tunnels, water chambers, and an amphitheater, which held 4,000 people. The desert site wasn't known to the West until Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt came across it in 1812.

What is IQ? Intelligence quotient (IQ) is an age-related measure of intelligence and is defined as 100 times the mental age. The word ‘quotient’ means the result of dividing one quantity by another, and intelligence can be defined as mental ability or quickness of mind. What is an IQ Test? An intelligence test ( IQ test) is, by definition, any test that purports to measure intelligence. Generally such tests consist of a graded series of tasks, each of which has been standardized usinga large, representative population of individuals. This procedure establishes the average IQ as 100.It is generally believed that a person’s IQ rating ishereditary and that the rate of development of a person’s mental age remains constant until aboutthe age of 13 years, after which it slows up. Beyond the age of 18 little or no improvement is found. IQ Test Questions Tests that measure the IQs of children are standardized and an average score is recorded for each age group. Thus a child of 10 years of age who scores t ...

  The day was Sunday the 27th of January and the time was around 0800hrs. We as crew were only briefed of a special flight, related to the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility drive. The cabin crew was chosen as a result of being a part of the team building group from UL who conducted such an event on a previous day in Piliyandala to a group of lesser fortunate children.    Investigations revealed that it was the same children from Piliyandala, who we discovered eventually, did not have the bare necessity of a pair of rubber slippers to take part in the events organized by us on that given day. Team building exercisers coupled with a few relationship building events and showing them the importance of being responsible citizens of the country were the order of that day in Piliyandala. But their need to be recognized in society and be a part of the normal human culture of a Sri Lankan family was portrayed amongst the participants, which made our objective that much easier to achieve on that moment ...

The HWA Xperience for 2/2/13 Still not fully recovered from a late night out with friends, which has me thinking maybe I have this wrestling reviewing thing all wrong, and should start reviewing strippers – because yeah, that wouldn’t go wrong… “Look, you can just barely see her c-section scars”. Anyway, I found myself at the HWA Garage, the House of the Homeless ™, for another week of HWA action. Cliff and I didn’t expect a lot this week, as no matches were posted online. In fact, the show wasn’t even mentioned that I could see till Saturday. They were missing their usual announcer, who was filled in for by a local worker named Two-Bit. The first match was Forsaken vs. Mike Cobb, in a rematch of previous weeks. Forsaken gets some pretty good heel heat, while Mike Cobb is one of the stars of HWA. This match hardly even got started as Forsaken came after Cobb with a chair during Cobb’s intro. Cobb later took two good chairshots to the back, and the match was ruled a no contest. The next m ...

TOP NEWS Borno State Agrees To Pay Boko Haram N26 Billion Compensation. The Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal-Jihad, popularly called Boko Haram, has asked the federal and Borno State governments to compensate its leadership, members and families of its dead members, as a major condition to sustain the one-week-old ceasefire it announced last Monday. [image] Saturday it was gathered exclusively that the sect's demand for monetary compensation, which will cost both the federaland Borno State governments nothing less than N26 billion has already been accepted by the Borno State government, which has been the worst hit by the activities of the sect. The amount, it was gathered, could be more or less depending on the total number of the sect members that have been killed by the security agencies. According to a highly placed source, "the money being demanded by the sect leaders, they claim they will use it to compensate themselves, their members for all their losses, especially their houses, cars and busin ...

Foum Zguid in southern Morocco is where the Zguid river comes out of a canyon onto the plain (foum means mouth) and north of the canyon it was 5ºC at 8am, 800m south it was 14ºC. The temperature climbed to 30ºC as I started on the dry bed of Lak Iriki which is 50 miles long. Too much loose sand, though and I bogged down several times. The main pic is after I've lightened the bike by removing the panners and roll bag and I'm about to drag the 180kg bike out. Good for weight loss! After the third time I'm getting a bit stressed, not helped by the fact I didn't see anyone for five hours, so a bit lonely. Very close to the Algerian border, hence the picture of the military post.

Bull-Dogs of the Sea by Louis Becke Not many sea-going people--outside of professional whalemen or sealers--know much about the "killer" and his habits, and still less of his appearance. Yet this curious whale (for the killer is one of the minor-toothed whales) is known all over the world, though nowhere is it more plentiful than along the eastern and southern coasts of the Australian continent. In the colder seas of the northern part of the globe it is not uncommon; and only last year one was playing havoc, it was stated, with the fishermen's nets off the northeastern coast of Ireland. On the eastern seaboard of Australia, however, the killers can be watched at work, even from the shore, particularly from any bluff or headland from which a clear view can be obtained of the sea beneath, and should there be a westerly wind blowing, their slightest movements may be observed; particularly when they are "cruising," i.e., watching for the approach of a "pod" of either humpback or fin-back whales. During the pr ...

Mali: The Conflict Enters a New Phase February 4, 2013 | 1430 GMT Summary Now that French forces have fended off a jihadist push into southern Mali and have driven militants out of northern Mali's main population centers, the Malian conflict appears to be entering a new phase. During this phase, France will make way for African forces and will put renewed focus on re-establishing the Malian democratic process and spurring negotiations between Bamako and Mali's Tuaregs. The coming weeks and months will entail an intervention largely in line with what was planned before the militants' own offensive, which prompted the French intervention, began. Meanwhile, militants are withdrawing to mountainous regions, where they will maintain the ability to mount an insurgency that could threaten military forces and civilians in northern Mali. Offensive military operations will continue to try to degrade and disrupt al Qaeda-linked groups and prevent them from fleeing farther to Algeria, Niger and Libya. Analysis French ...

IT'S BEST IN SOHO TIME! This week we want to know where we can find the most Unique Food in Southern Idaho. You may vote once through Wednesday at noon by commenting on this post.
The thali is one of the most important contributions to Indian cuisine, originally invented in Gujarat. The thali is basically a large round plate with several small bowls, called katoris. In Southern India, a thalis all is often served on a large banana leaf. As most Gujaratis are vegetarian a traditional thali would consist of a number of vegetarian dishes. The thali is a great way to experience Indian food. So if you like this idea of sampling several small dishes providing you with a well balanced meal make sure to join us this Thursday at Ritzy. The only question we will ask is what main dish would you like and the rest will be prepared by our Chef and his team on the night.
