Run 3'

There is something satisfying about a simple game that requires your undivided attention. It drives you ever onward, unceasing. 'Run 3' is such a game. You run and jump through tubular worlds that you explore. As you unlock levels, things can become more challenging, but you also have access to ways of moving (like roller blades!).

ORONO After taking home yet another Grammy for his incredible stylings on Banjo with his wife Abigail Washburn, Bela Fleck will be coming to the Collins Center for the Arts on Feb. 29 at 7 p.m.

Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have collaborated in the past, most visibly in their Sparrow Quartet with Casey Driessen and Ben Sollee. Until last fall, though, any performances they gave as a two-piece were decidedly informal - a pickin' party here, a benefit show at Washburn's grandmother's Unitarian church there. It was inevitable and eagerly anticipated by fans of tradition-tweaking acoustic fare that these partners in music and life (who married in 2009) would eventually do a full-fledged project together.

Blacksmith Lab'

'Blacksmith Lab' is a clicker game, but though it does have an idle mode, you are best served when you are actively playing it. You own a smithy, and your goal is to make things, fill orders and upgrade your smith so you can upgrade and fill more orders.

All the while there are other things going on in the world, like thieves that steal your money, investments you can make in town, gifts you can receive and so on. The more you actively play, the more you can do things like put out literal fires in your forge or take advantage of lower risk investments at the bank but you can't do those things if you are just forging idly in the background.

Edge Mom: Reduce, reuse, recycle

I'm not a hoarder, but sometimes it's difficult to tell. Being sentimental, it's really hard for me to throw certain things away especially when it comes to my kids. I still have scribbles they did when they first started using crayons, and I don't want to chuck them.

Then they started school, and the projects started rolling home on a weekly basis. Now I'm so inundated with sentimental items I could scream. I may have screamed actually. This is not the first time I wished I was a more organized person, nor will it be the last. And no, this isn't a story about how I magically clean my house though there are times I get it to passable.

Man who fled crash turns self in

MANCHESTER The man Maine State Police were looking for after he reportedly fled from a high speed chase and crashed turned himself into authorities.

On Feb. 4, a car driven by Steven N. Black crashed after being involved in two high-speed chases with both State and Winthrop Police. Police had been looking for Black after troopers tracked along the shore and on the ice of Cobbossee Lake for several hours early that morning. The tracks then led back to the Pond Road.

A state trooper first attempted to pull Black's car over on Route 202 in Manchester and after it reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour, the trooper broke off the pursuit. Later, Winthrop Police attempted to stop the car along Routes 135 and 202 and officers lost track of the car on the Pond Road. A short time later, troopers found the Pontiac Grand Am had crashed into a tree on a nearby camp road near the West Gardiner town line. With the help of a State Police dog, troopers followed tracks along and on the ice of Cobbossee Lake for over five miles.
