Katy's year in review

This is a good job to have if you enjoy talking to people and learning new things. And 2015 was a particularly good year for it. Between names big and small, I met some of the most interesting people who live in or visited Maine.

King's Quest: Rubble without a Cause'

Second chapter short and rather dark

The first chapter of the new King's Quest series rightly wowed people with its stunning visuals, clever puzzles and whimsical characters and storytelling. The second chapter had a lot of expectations to live up to, and will have to be forgiven for not quite meeting them.

Skewed View - (12/23/15)

Things are festive all over downtown Bangor, with lights at night and garlands and banners during the day. Where can you see this festive tree? It's on a popular intersection bonus points if you can name the business! (Photo by Katy England).

Last week's view was taken at the pier in Castine and shows the State of Maine, the ship used by the Maine Maritime Academy as a training vessel. It is more than impressive in person. (Photo by Katy England).

Criminal Mischief - (12/23/15)

Don't blow the toll if you have blow

YORK Maine State Police say a man and woman from Portland were charged early this morning on cocaine and heroin charges after their speeding car was stopped on the Maine Turnpike in York. Troopers said the car was returning from New York and the driver also had in the vehicle his wife and two young children.

ORONO This is the time of year when kids begin to believe in the magic of the holidays, and the timeless tradition of 'Nutcracker' helps.

The story is steeped in magic, with Godfather Drosselmeyer (Keith Robinson), creating life-sized toys to perform at his family's Christmas fete. Everyone gets special gifts, but Clara (Haley Williams) gets a special present, much to the ire of her brother Fritz (Nathan Williams). After a tussle, the new present is broken, much to Clara's dismay but he is soon put right by Dosselmeyer. What comes next is a mixture of holiday anticipation and sugar-induced dream wonderland.

Time Waster - Icy Gifts 2'

This is a charming physics puzzle game where you have to repeatedly help Santa out of a tough spot and save as many presents as you can, as well as the big man himself.

Somehow, Santa Claus and all of his presents have become frozen in ice. You have the power to start chain reactions to free the presents and, hopefully, Santa as well in 45 different puzzles. I know, you'd think that Santa would learn not to take a polar plunge after maybe the first 10 or so, but then there would be no game and no wasted time. So, moving on.

2016 Crimees

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.

Ramsay's Custom Guitars

BANGOR You would be forgiven for not knowing that Kirk Ramsay spends his spare time crafting custom-made guitars in the basement of Bangor Window Shade and Drapery. He's the kind of guy who enjoys making them, but isn't one to brag. You'd notice a certain stylistic theme when you walked into his office the one with about a dozen different guitars hanging from the wall all his work, all different, all awesome.
