Firefighters, ski patrol, rock climbers practice together at Snow Bowl lift evacuation drill
Mon, 01/27/2020 - 2:15pm
CAMDEN — Saturday night, Jan. 25, lent perfect conditions for the 65-plus who arranged themselves along the Foxy trail at the Camden Snow Bowl, either sitting up in the air on a stalled chairlift, or assembling below with rescue ropes and climbing equipment. The edge of a heavy rainstorm was on the approach, but temperatures hovered around 32 degrees, just warm enough so ski patrollers, firefighters and High Angle rescue climbers could evacuate the stranded riders, and train each other in...

January begins with flurry of chimney fires across Midcoast
Tue, 01/21/2020 - 6:30pm
KNOX COUNTY — January started with heat in the wrong places for a few Knox County residents as a result of chimney fires. In just over two weeks, firefighters in four municipalities hauled their sweep chains and poles roofward to fight flames in Lincolnville (Jan. 2), Union (Jan. 14), Rockland, (Jan. 16), and Camden (Jan.17). In Rockland, firefighters were able to read words off of unburned pieces of old pizza boxes that fell from the chimney liner with each sweep of the cleaning tools. The...
Bare trees of winter inspire Montville artist
Tue, 01/21/2020 - 1:30pm
MONTVILLE—Artist Felicia Cinquegrana lives in the deep woods of Montville, but she doesn’t even need to venture outside for inspiration. Trees are all around—her house, her studio, and in her art. Her hand-engraved jewelry and paintings are only part of her collection, but they all share the same quality: A bare etching of a tree, its branches in stark movement, giving the impression of reaching out. “My husband and I moved to Montville, Maine, from Rhode Island five years ago,” she said. With...

This Week in Lincolnville: The biggest issue we face
Mon, 01/20/2020 - 5:15pm
Lincolnville’s sixth grade science students braved the cold one recent day to conduct an investigation of high tides at the Beach. Through "Weather Blur," a program from the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance, the class spent the fall developing the research question, "How high is the high tide at Lincolnville Beach over the course of a lunar cycle, and how does this compare to 20 years ago?” Then they had to figure out how to answer this question, what data they would need and how/where...

Belfast’s Repair Café gives worn-out items a second life
‘Use it up, wear it out, make do or do without’
Tue, 01/07/2020 - 11:45am
BELFAST—Broken zippers, a busted toaster, holey sweaters and buzzing electronics—it was like the Island of Misfit Toys in the small back room of the Belfast Fiber Arts store on Saturday, January 4, where a crowd of people with older or worn items in their hands, looked for an expert repair. The Belfast Repair Cafe is a band of “fix-perts,” all volunteers, who come together every couple of months to lend their expertise and repair broken items for free.

Belfast native raises funds to help Australian fires victims
Mon, 01/06/2020 - 12:00pm
SYDNEY, Australia — With the fires continuing to burn in Australia, one Belfast native living there is tapping into her Midcoast roots to raise money for those affected by the fires. Callie Cook, a 20-year-old living in Australia to study the art of wine-making after learning the trade in European countries, is not herself in the direct path of fires, at this time, as she is living in Sydney. But the city is feeling the effects of fires thousands of miles away, according to Cook, and she is...

New Year’s Eve 100 years ago in Midcoast Maine
Mon, 12/30/2019 - 12:00pm
ROCKLAND—On December 30, 1919, The Courier-Gazette put out its
for its usual price of three cents for a single copy. The headlines were nothing spectacular on that day, even though it was the day before New Year’s Eve. Maine, along with the rest of the U.S., was just about to enter a decade known as the Roaring ‘20s.
The newspaper industry was concerned about a partisan and capitalistic threat to democracy, according to a...

Sail Power Steam Museum surprised by neighbors’ opposition to building plans
Wed, 12/18/2019 - 8:15am
ROCKLAND — “I’m not doing this to line my pockets,” said Captain Jim Sharp, in defense of a proposed $700,000 boat building to be constructed at the Sail Power and Steam Museum in Rockland. “I’m not doing this to increase my net worth – buy a chateau in the south of France. I’ve already put most of the family inheritance in to this project. I’m 86 years old now. If I can fill my credit card full, I’m going to be a happy man.” Concerns by abutting neighbors of the proposed museum addition forced...

Homeowners in the 52- unit Mountainside Park, an age 55 and over manufactured housing community on Route 52 in Camden, took a big step toward securing their financial futures when they collectively bought their neighborhood as a resident cooperative Dec. 11.

We’ve just come off a bombardment of Thanksgiving, Black or Buy Nothing Friday, Shop Small Saturday, Small Brewery Sunday, (a new thing) and Cyber Monday. All of it has been about consuming and spending. But, Tuesday, December 3, is a re-set of priorities. It is known as

They did it for the love of the game, and because, in the words of their coach, “they embrace a challenge.” But besides their grit and determination, there...
Rockland’s 2019 Parade of Lights sparks start of Midcoast holiday season
Sat, 11/30/2019 - 7:45pm
ROCKLAND — Following November 30’s Parade of Lights in Rockland, three well-behaved green characters may find themselves on Santa’s ‘nice’ list – at least for a moment or two. Such a list would also include a clear, star-studded sky, a receptive crowd, and a smoothly-run event. As with previous years, Saturday evening’s 25-degree crisp temperatures weren’t enough to keep well-clad young fans from inching forward at the sight of a red belly and shouting his name in surprise and elation.

THOMASTON—Watts Hall Community Players Director Daryl Hahn is currently traveling back to Maine from a Thanksgiving vacation just in time for Saturday night’s performances at Watts Hall, November 30. On her way to the train, she had only four minutes to explain what the upcoming short plays were about: hence, just like the evening’s namesake: the synopses are short and sweet. There are 10 performers who will be performing a program of five short, 15-20 minute plays. “They are very silly,” said...
How to do ‘Friendsgiving’ in Maine
Fri, 11/22/2019 - 1:00pm
A traditional family Thanksgiving may be ideal for some, but for people who don’t have family in Maine, may have strained family relations, or just don’t feel like slogging through holiday travel, there’s another way. Friendsgiving, a decidedly un-traditional potluck dinner with friends, is how to put a fun and stress-free spin on the holiday, while staying put in Maine. Internet sleuths pinpoint the origin of the term Friendsgiving around 2007 or 2008 to reflect an informal gathering of a...

LINCOLNVILLE—Even though it was a drizzly, gloomy day when I visited Janet Redfield’s house and studio on a rural road in Lincolnville, her stained glass doors on both the front and back of the house were aglow with moody light. Handcrafted by Redfield, the doors are threaded with asymmetrical wooden panels; it’s like a viewing the jungle through creeping vines. This same light is caught in a variety of glass sconces, artwork and sun catchers throughout the house she shares with her husband...

Maine comic artist explores ‘gallows humor’ and the poisoning of the natural world

Ten artists, two canoes and ten days down The Penobscot River,
Schultz’s particular brand of artwork struck me. I thought I’d see photographs, poems, and sculptures at the artists’ reception (and I did, all good) but I didn’t expect to see hand-drawn comics with a biting tone. Here’s an older comic, titled...
The Maine Old Cemetery Association is dedicated to the preservation of Maine’s neglected cemeteries
The hidden, neglected graves of Maine
Thu, 10/24/2019 - 1:00pm
This time of year, cemeteries in Maine seem to affect two kinds of people: Those who zip by them as fast as they can while holding their breath and those who are drawn to them like moths to flame. Everyone who is a member of the Maine Old Cemetery Association falls in the latter category. Founded in 1968 by Dr. Hilda M. Fife of Kittery, MOCA developed out of Fife’s sheer interest in preserving the monuments and stones in a long neglected cemetery near her house. Within the last 50 years, that...

Every couple of hours throughout Wednesday night’s storm, the Rockland Harbor Master and Asst. Harbor Master made the rounds of the city’s shoreline inlets. The Wednesday night rain-driven nor’easter, Oct. 16 into Oct. 17, battered the coastline with gale-force winds, heavy downpours, and the occasional lightning flash during a storm that punched its way up the East Coast.

He spent five months in a coma, and approximately 18 years working to return his paralyzed left side to a fully-functioning life. Saturday, Oct. 5, Scott treaded his way along a rugged Camden Snow Bowl running course where calf muscles often strain as participants race up the perimeter ski trails. Carrying a walking stick and traveling slowly, he negotiated the earthy course, circling rocks and roots that other athletes...
