Major cabbage for a major cabbage

BELFAST - Tanner Carson may only be in the third grade but he's already got a green thumb that would make any horticulturist jealous. The student from the Captain Albert Stevens Elementary School in Belfast recently participated in the Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program and won $1,000 for growing an impressive 28 pound cabbage.

Giving thanks with lights

The Hathaway house is one of the most decorated homes in the Bangor area each Christmas. The family doesn't use hundreds of lights, they use thousands to decorate their house, garage, shrubs and trees. It's their small way of celebrating the holiday while also displaying their heartfelt gratitude to Eastern Maine Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or NICU.

"It's a lot of work and definitely a lot of love [to put up all the lights] but there's a reason behind what we're doing. We're collecting money for the NICU," explained Rick Hathaway.

Toni Buzzeo of Buxton isn't slowing down for the holidays. The children's book author has released her 24th book just in time for Christmas called “The Twelve Days of Christmas in New England.” The book follows two cousins as they spend their Christmas vacation exploring New England. Buzzeo admits she learned a number of new things about New England while penning the story and hopes readers enjoy the adventure through New England as much as her characters do. 

Maine Edge: “The Twelve Days of Christmas in New England” is your latest children's book read to the classic Christmas carol, "The Twelve Days of Christmas." It also includes several historical facts about the New England states. Did you intend on it being a historical and geographic lesson for readers?

Geaghan's gives back

Business donates portion of sales to Bark for Life

BANGOR - Geaghan's Pub & Craft Brewery in downtown Bangor is well known for its wings, beer and community spirit. For the fourth year in a row, the business is donating a portion of its proceeds from a certain day's sales to Greater Bangor Bark for Life, an American Cancer Society Relay for Life event that honors the caregiving qualities of canine companions.

BELFAST - Prom season is right around the corner, and many teenage girls who might not have been able to go due to cost are now getting the chance to attend the big dance all thanks to the Cinderella Project of Maine. This free prom dress giveaway, held at the Reny's Plaza in Belfast, is now in its 10th year, and in that amount of time it has supplied 1,200 high schoolers with a new or used prom dress.

"I can't believe it. I'm just so happy and so proud. Not many things make it to 10 years, especially when it's all volunteer based and seasonal," said Mandie Sawyer, chairperson of the Cinderella Project of Maine.

Amputee trains four legged companions

BANGOR - Jason Howe never intended to be a dog trainer. However, this amputee fell into the role several years ago, and he hasn't looked back since. 

"My career started not by choice," said Howe. "When I was 19 or so I got a dog from the shelter. A few years later, I had a woman come into my life and the dog just wouldn't listen to her at all, so I took him to obedience classes and courses and it just went from there."

BANGOR - Christmas is one of the biggest memory-making holidays of the year for young and old alike. But if you have ever had the unfortunate experience of losing a loved one on or around the holiday, it can be one of the most difficult times of the year to celebrate. Rick Hathaway of Bangor knows that feeling all too well.

"Three years ago my wife had twins born at 29 weeks. My son Alex passed away from complications from prematurity, but our son Warren is 3 and a half now and is doing very well," said Hathaway.
