Cover Story (202)
Police have caught the culprit behind the Duck of Justice’s kidnapping and it is none other than The Maine Edge’s Katy England, seen in this surveillance photo that was snapped by Kevin Bennett (who is also paid to take security photos for police).
England was apprehended when she attempted to return the absent Duck. Police seemed to think that this was brought on by a surge of panic and guilt when she realized her own publication had writing a large feature on the missing waterfowl.
BANGOR – The mascot of The Bangor Police Department and social media darling, The Duck of Justice (DOJ) has gone missing and authorities suspect fowl foul play. Police reportedly received a ransom demand asking for an exorbitant amount of money in exchange for the safe return of the taxidermy duck.
Sgt. Tim Cotton, spokesperson for the Bangor Police Department, is concerned for the Duck, and urges those who have taken him to “do the right thing.”
The PBA comes to Portland
PORTLAND – It’s easy to be a fan of some sports. Our cultural climate has put leagues such as the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball at the very top of our awareness. Even those with no interest can’t escape the claxon call of pro sports.
And it’s not just for rocket scientists
BANGOR – We’re surrounded by science every day, but rarely do we get a chance to revel in it and play. That chance is coming to Bangor March 20-22 for the Maine Science Festival (MSF), which will take place throughout Downtown and at the Cross Insurance Center. There will be three days of science fun, bringing a greater sense of awareness of the impact the sciences has in the community, as well as the breadth of scientific research that is happening in Maine.
BANGOR – In 1992, sources as varied as The New York Times and George Costanza (on an episode of “Seinfeld”) reported that salsa had outsold ketchup in the United States for the first time. America had a new preferred condiment.
Many fans might argue that salsa is not a mere condiment but actually a side dish and should be rebranded as such.
A mix of local and national brews to be showcased
BANGOR – With huge storms, gigantic snowbanks and more forecast, many of us have been spending a lot of time indoors – and going a little stir crazy. Now Townsquare Media is bringing a new beer festival to the Cross Insurance Center on Feb. 27 from 6-9 p.m. Bangor on Tap is part of the media agency’s America on Tap and will be bringing brewers to the Queen City for you to sample beer while enjoying food and live music. Not a bad way to beat the stir-crazies
Once again, we’ve reached that point in the year where the Hollywood folks roll out the red carpets and indulge in blatant self-promotion and self-congratulation. That’s right – it’s the Academy Awards!
This is one of my favorite times of the year. I spend a lot of time at the movies; any chance I get to engage in discussion about the good, the bad and the ugly of the cinematic world is a welcome one. The best part of the Oscars comes from the conversations that they inspire. Who will win, who should win, who got lucky, who got snubbed – so much of the joy we derive from films springs from talking about them.
