Survivor of the Week

Komen Maine and Hollywood Slots honor Denise Hodsdon

BANGOR The Susan G. Komen Maine Race for the Cure-Bangor and Survivor Sponsor Hollywood Slots Hotel and Raceway are proud to honor Survivor of the Week, Denise Hodsdon of Brewer. Hodsdon is co-chair of the 2011 Bangor Race.

'My journey with Susan G. Komen started in 2003,' said Hodsdon. 'My town manager's daughter-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early 20s. It's frustrating when you want to do something to help, but you don't know what to do. My sister had been involved with the Race for Cure and she mentioned to me one day that there was a committee meeting coming up. I went, and immediately decided this is something I want to do to try and help.'

Hodsdon was a registration co-chair from 2003 to 2007, volunteering her time at five consecutive races. In the fall of 2007 Hodsdon resigned from her position at the Race for the Cure, feeling that it was time to move on to something different.

Pulse radio introduces new dynamic duo

BANGOR - There's nothing scary about Stephen King's latest work, but he is hoping his newest project will get people talking. The well-known horror writer and Zone Radio Corporation owner has hired former U.S. Vice Presidential candidate Pat LaMarche, and former newsman Don Cookson, to host The Pulse Morning Show on WZON 103.1 FM and WZON 620 AM weekdays, starting Sept. 12.

"I've missed in-depth coverage of Maine events and politics in the Bangor market. We're going to be provocative, informative and amusing, and we think everyone will enjoy the show except for certain politicians," explained King with a chuckle.

His new team plans not only to discuss local and national politics but also homelessness, welfare, healthcare, the job market and the rising costs of education; nothing is off limits.

Bath salts saturate Bangor area

 'I was such a mess. I lost 40 pounds in three weeks. I usually weigh about 145 pounds but I was down to 105. I knew very well that I was close to death. According to the police report, I thanked the officer for arresting me. I told him I was an addict and couldn't get clean and he was probably saving my life.' - Jesse, 27 of Bangor. Recovering bath salts user.

Biscuit Bucks help train service dog

Dogs have always been dubbed "man's best friend," but that old adage should be updated to "right-hand man" when you're talking about service dogs. So many well-trained service dogs are allowing disabled Mainers to live on their own by being able to open and close doors, fetch a telephone or even help their owners get back on their feet should they fall.
