BANGOR - Todd's Original Salsa, a Bangor-based company that produces a line of traditional all natural and gluten free salsas has expanded their retail grocery business by adding additional Hannaford Supermarket locations in the central, southern and coastal areas within the state.

Todd's Original Salsa is currently a strong seller in all the Hannaford locations in and around Bangor; the recently added stores include locations in Bucksport, Belfast, Bridgton, Jay, Farmington, Gardiner, Madison, Oxford, Rumford, Skowhegan, Turner and Winthrop.

BREWER - While much of the craft beer industry is celebrating American Craft Beer Week, Geaghan Bros. Brewing Co. had their own local celebration recently as they celebrated the official opening of their brewery production facility expansion in Brewer. The celebration included an official ribbon cutting, and Brewer's Deputy Mayor Bev Uhlenhake presented the Geaghan Brothers Larry, Peter and Pat, along with Larry's son Andrew, a key to the City.

The brewery in Brewer will have a 20-barrel brewing system with 40 barrel fermenters. This is about eight times the production capacity of the barrel system currently being used at Geaghan's Pub & Craft Brewery in Bangor. The increase in capacity will allow for more distribution and the bottling of Geaghan Bros. branded brews in 6 pack and 12 pack varieties, which is something new for the Greater Bangor market. The closest brewery with 6 packs available in stores is Atlantic Brewing Co. out of Bar Harbor

BAR HARBOR - A $3.1 million facelift and expansion has doubled Hancock County Bar Harbor Airport's (BHB) terminal from 5,000 to 10,000 square feet. The small county airport with 2,200 commercial flights annually has upgraded its security area, added new customer service areas and made a more aesthetically pleasing space to an airport that is currently host to two commercial airlines as well as many private planes per year, occasionally including Air Force One.

'FAA Improvement Funds financed 87.6 percent of the project. The Maine Department of Transportation is providing 4.5 percent, and the local airport share is 7.9 percent,' stated Brad Madeira, airport manager. 'We really needed to accommodate more passengers and improve TSA screening. The original building was designed in a pre-TSA era.'

BELFAST The City of Belfast is currently seeking one or more businesses (referred to within the flying community as Fixed Base Operators) to consider relocating or expanding to Belfast Municipal Airport to provide aviation-related services. Belfast Municipal Airport, a 320-acre general aviation airport possessing a 4,000-foot by 100-foot main runway, was originally built in the 1940s and caters to corporate jets and small aircraft (there is no regular commercial flight service); two of Belfast's larger businesses, Athena Health and Front Street Shipyard, regularly use this airport. The airport has 17 aircraft based there, along with 24 privately-owned hangars, separate from the City's own facilities located there.

For many years, and up until just recently, the airport was fortunate to have a Fixed Base Operator located there, who provided a variety of services to the aviation community, including aircraft maintenance, charter flights, scenic flights, flight training, tie-down services and aviation fuel (100 low-lead) fuel sales.

ORONO Simon Godwin's reinvention of Bernard Shaw's witty 1903 classic 'Man and Superman' will be broadcast live on the big screen at 7 p.m. Friday, May 14, at the Collins Center for the Arts at the University of Maine.

Academy Award-nominee Ralph Fiennes plays Jack Tanner in the sold-out stage production at the Lyttelton Theatre in London. 'Man and Superman' is billed as a romantic comedy, an epic fairytale and a fiery philosophical debate that asks fundamental questions about how we live.

BANGOR Something big is brewing in Bangor. On Friday, May 1 the Bangor Historical Society (BHS) and Geaghan Brothers Brewing kicked off a home brewing contest that culminates with the winning recipe being commercially produced as a Limited Edition Release.

History on Tap is a two-part collaboration between the Bangor Historical Society and Geaghan Brothers Brewing to benefit the BHS. It all begins with a home brew recipe contest that ends on July 10.

BANGOR Our unending winter does seem to have at last released its firm grip on us. However, at the International Aviation Snow Symposium in Buffalo, NY snow was all the talk. At its annual event, the American Association of Airport Executives announced the awards for their Balchen-Post awards for excellence in snow and ice control for the 2014-15 snow season. Bangor International Airport's snow team was recognized for its excellence in snow and ice control with an Honorable Mention in the Small Commercial Airports category.

Bangor International Airport's Director, Tony Caruso commented, 'The Balchen-Post recognition is particularly rewarding for our snow team and the airport since the selection committee is made up of our peers in the industry who deal with snow and ice removal all over the country. We are very honored to be one of the nine airports recognized out of the many airports in the northern US who deal with snow and ice removal.' He went on to say that BGR's snow team was particularly challenged this past snow season with the back to back storms.
