My weekend at UMaine Baseball Fantasy Camp
ORONO – I’ve loved the game of baseball since I was a kid. From my time on the bench in Farm League to the present day, I’ve been a passionate fan of the game. It’s still the best game there is in my opinion, no matter what football might have to say about it.
With the brisk air and gorgeous saturation of colors comes the fragrant flavors of fall. One of the hallmarks of the season is the pumpkin-flavored everything from beer to donuts is offered in some form in all restaurants. And even if you feel it’s a bit much, you can usually find something to tuck into to make you feel better about the coming snow.
The flavors of fall tend to be spicy, tart and earthy. Much of this comes from the late harvest coming in – chock full of squash, potatoes, cranberry and apples. But then there’s always things to spice it up, like nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and ginger. And whether you enjoy the sweet or savory side of your fall feasts, you’ll find something you like.

The pantheon of great comics is riddled with dynamic personalities, joke machines and unparalleled observers of the human condition. However, there are a scant few names that would be difficult to argue against, no matter what your personal taste might be.
The summer of 2014 wasn’t a particularly lucrative one for Hollywood. While there were plenty of action epics and sequels galore, there weren’t many films that truly captured the moviegoing public’s attention in a consistent way. Thus, ticket sales for the season were down.
However, now that we’re making our way into autumn, the studios are offering up a wealth of new films that they hope will help make up that shortfall. There are box office giants and popular properties and a few prestige pictures as well; it’s time to take a look at some of what’s in store.
