Skewed View - (10/25/15)

This week’s view is sometimes, but not always, seen from Castine. Occasionally it’s gone with some of the local student population with it. The name is pretty easy, considering where we live. (Photo by Katy England)

Last week’s skewed view was from the curved frontage of one of Bangor’s new eateries, Evenroon’s. Inside the restaurant is the bank vault, now part of the décor. (Photo by Katy England)

‘Jessica Jones’

by Katy England

Not quite as boring as the name implies

I wanted to like Netflix’s new original series “Jessica Jones” – and I think I did, but it took a little time. Forty minutes, to be precise. Once I got past that mark in the pilot episode, things really started to get interesting.

Holiday comedy balances humor, sentiment

DOVER-FOXCROFT - The Center Theatre Board of Directors announced recently that they are hiring Patrick Myers as the Theatre's executive director. No stranger to the Theatre or the position, Myers was the Theatre's founding executive director until he resigned from the position in late 2010. While he is returning to the position, both the role of the executive director and the Theatre itself have changed in the past five years. 

"The division of responsibilities and staff positions have changed  considerably," said Pam Tower, the chair of the Center Theatre's Board of Directors. "We're thrilled that Patrick will again be guiding the organization that he worked so hard to begin." For his part, Myers agrees that the job is different now: "Back then we were trying to figure out what the Theatre was, how it worked, and the best way to manage it to be sustainable in the long-term. The organization has learned quite a bit about what works and what doesn't. Most of the guesswork is over and we have a fairly clear path to follow to success."
