Stormy Weather

Written by Katy England

MAINE The difference between this winter and last year's winter is stark, with temperatures well into the 40s and 50s throughout November and December. Not only did we not have a white Christmas, the snow that did fall Christmas week was rather light, and only 75 households experienced loss of power here in Maine.
Although this most recent storm, dubbed 'Goliath,' wreaked havoc across much of the country, Maine was mostly spared this time around.
The contrast underscores the unpredictable nature of Maine storms, which can make planning difficult. We sat down with folks from Emera Maine to find out what goes into the prep and restoration when a nasty storm does hit.

2016 Crimees

Written by Katy England

Writing the police beat is always a mixed bag of sadness, absurdity and humor. At the end of the year, we take a look back and pull from the files the best of the worst. We skip over the grim stories and try to find the ones that made us shake our heads or laugh. Names and dates have been removed to let people get on with their lives. And though we will never rise to the heights of hilarity that have graced the Bangor Police Department due to the tender ministrations of Sgt. Tim Cotton, we will always try.

What follows are our 2016 Crimees. Stay out of the Police Beat, kids.

Going Bowling 2015

Written by Allen Adams

Predicting the outcome of every college bowl game

It's that time of year again that time when I use every bit of knowledge I have accumulated in another season of college football half-fandom and try to predict the winners of every bowl game.

A banner year for books 15 of 2015's best

Written by Allen Adams

This year has been a phenomenal year for the written word. So many brilliant works of fiction and nonfiction alike have made the scene in 2015.

Reviewing books is one of the most enjoyable parts of my work at The Maine Edge; I've had the opportunity to read dozens of different works over the course of the year. And while most of them had something significant to offer, there are some that stand apart from the rest.

Giving to good health

Written by Katy England

The importance of healthy food donations

BANGOR Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season and also inspires people to open their hearts and pantries to those who are in need. Food drives abound, and many supermarkets offer customers a chance to purchase gifts for those who find themselves in need. The Center for Disease Control and the City of Bangor's Health Department are trying to raise awareness to increase the nutritive value of donated food to food pantries across the city and state.

Various ways to shop for the holiday season

The Christmas creep has been happening for some time every year we note how early holiday decorations appear on shelves and Christmas carols begin to eke into the radio lineup. It is difficult to say how accurate these perceptions are, but it's certainly amped up by everyone weighing in on social media.
