Katy England Year in Review

Written by Katy England


Yeah, I was as surprised as anyone when I was able to interview Ke$ha. I'm seldom very nervous about interviews, but I was downright jittery about this one. How about a little background: I didn't know who Ke$ha was. I mean, I'd heard of her in a vague sense. I knew she was incredibly popular and that was about the extent of my knowledge. You have to understand, I don't go out. I do not party like a rock star or enjoy hangovers so I needed to research this one. So I did, and several episodes of 'My Crazy Beautiful Life' later I was hooked.

Going Bowling 2013

Written by Allen Adams

A casual fan predicts all 35 bowl games

The college football regular season has come to a conclusion. It's all about the bowl games now 35 of them in all. That means 70 different teams are looking to end their season with a victory. I tried to predict them all last year with some success.

The Crimees 2013

Written by Katy England

I'm heading into my seventh year covering the police beat for the area. Every year, I wonder if I'll have enough material for the Crimees, and every year when I review the files I am blown away by what goes on in the state. The cops deal with some crazy stuff. Some of it is incredibly dark, hard to comprehend evil and some of it is the blunt end of stupid. This recap is more of the latter the silly, stupid, borderline hilarious crime that makes you go, 'I can't believe they did that.'

A special thanks to all the agencies and officers who go out of their way to make my job compiling this information easier. We have removed the names of suspects and officers, as we don't know the outcome of trials. And though arrests are a matter of public record, we figure once in print is enough.

Season of giving

Written by Katy England

There are more ways to give than you may think

Editor's Note: Wire reports contributed to this story

The dichotomy of hordes of people clamoring to buy things the day after giving thanks has not been lost on the internet. Do a Google image search for Black Friday memes. I'll wait. Pretty funny stuff, except for that one really inappropriate image (sorry about that).

The problem with Lyme

Written by Mike Fern

Now endemic, Maine battles the growth of the tick-borne infection 

BANGOR It was just after Thanksgiving in 2011 when Mariana Batryn hit a new low. Having suffered flu-like symptoms on and off for more than a year, the then-sophomore at Husson's New England School of Communications felt so bad after a week-long battle with nausea, fever, dizziness, a loss of sensation in her extremities and bouts of anxiety and depression that she finally broke down and went to the emergency room at Eastern Maine Medical Center. It was yet another stop in the medical system for her, and one that yielded no results by the time she was released.

'I was dealing with other symptoms before that, but that is when it got the worst,' she recalled of that night. 'It was like I had the flu, and they had no idea what was going on with me.'

The plaid fad

Written by Katy England

Plaid Friday is a relaxing alternative to Black Friday

BANGOR We've read the stories and seen the footage: lines curling for blocks; stampedes of feverish customers trying to be first to grab that hot item; the deals, deals, deals! Black Friday is an annual rush to get the best deal on the shiniest merchandise, and some people live for the rush. And outside of the threat of being trampled, there's nothing wrong with enjoying the thrill of getting that extra-good deal the day after Thanksgiving, while some of us are still sleeping off the turkey hangovers and contemplating pumpkin pie for breakfast.

The view from the booth

Written by Allen Adams

An afternoon with UMaine football's radio broadcast team

ORONO It is a beautiful fall day, a touch on the warm side for the first weekend in November. The sun is shining brightly with just a few high clouds in the sky. The University of Maine Black Bears football team takes the field at Alfond Stadium and prepares to face off against the Sea Wolves of Stony Brook University.

The opening kickoff is launched at 12:38 p.m. But for Rich Kimball and Bob Lucy, the UMaine radio broadcast team for Learfield Sports, the day started much earlier.
