When only a horse will do

Written by Mike Fern

STETSON – As they approached a small bridge overlooking a stream on Saturday, Mark Merrill turned in his saddle to the group of horseback riders meandering along the wooded trail and gave a simple instruction.

“Keep the horse on the mat,” he said loudly, referring to a small black mat that covered one side of the wooden span. “Don’t let it go to the side.”

Despite the rising temperature in what would be one of the hottest days of July, it was still surprisingly cool in the back woods of Stetson – a testament to the ubiquitous contrast of much of Maine’s countryside on any given day. Trailing about a mile off Village Road, riders were navigating a mix of snowmobile thoroughfares and tight, thin paths where only a horse could go.

It showed the allure of what Maine’s backwoods are all about.

Marketing priorities to help increase impact

Written by Cary Weston

One of the most interesting parts of my job is having the opportunity to speak with owners of businesses - big and small, new and old - about the goals they have and the problems they face. Most of the issues they communicate come down to time and priorities. Many are so busy working “in” their business that there’s not enough time to work “on” their business.

Without creating an overwhelming task list, here are some simple considerations and small improvements that can make a big impact.
