This looks like a good place for a nap

OLD TOWN Police reportedly found a vehicle parked in the middle of Main Street with the driver passed out on the wheel. 

Officer Ryan Fitch was on routine patrol on Feb. 3 around 3 a.m. when he came upon a vehicle that was stopped in the middle of Main Street for no apparent reason. There were no traffic lights or stop signs in the area where the vehicle was stopped. Fitch noted that the headlights and brake lights were on and the car was running. He approached the driver's side and saw a man in the driver's seat with his chin on his chest and apparently passed out. The man's foot was on the brake and that was the only thing preventing the car from moving, as it was running and still in drive.

Best thing since sliced bread

There is an elegant simplicity in sandwiches. A sandwich can be a slice of cheese between pieces of bread, or it can be an extraordinary combination of flavors that make you swoon and it can be both at the same time. Sandwiches are comfort food. Soul food. Lunch food.

Sandwiches have been around in some form since Biblical times. Bitter herbs were placed between two pieces of unleavened bread at Passover by Hillel the Elder. More recently, there's the anecdote about the Earl of Sandwich, who asked for his meat to be served between two slices of bread so he could eat and continue to play cards. After that, everyone was asking for 'the same as Sandwich.'

Big personalities on Big 104

EDITOR'S NOTE: Full disclosure in case you didn't know, both Mike Dow and Deb Neuman write columns on a freelance basis to The Maine Edge. However, we still think it's cool that they have their own radio show together. If you are a DJ with a new radio show, we'd love to write a story about you too. Drop us a line (seriously!).

BANGOR Hearts were broken when 'The Mike and Mike Show' ended, but we were assured that the shows would go on in their respective studios and they are. Mike Elliot joined Kat Walls on The Bear, and Mike Dow headed up the stations for Big 104 FM. He is now being joined by Deb Neuman in the mornings for one big morning show. Mike Dow gave us the skinny on what listeners can expect.

George Hale in his own words Part two

When Maine Edge assignment editor Katy England asked me to submit a favorite column from the past year, I didn't need to think about it for very long.

Putting together my cover story featuring George Hale (June 20, 2012, click here to read part one) was an extraordinarily fun but somewhat difficult experience. The first draft was nearly three times the length of the story I ultimately submitted.

Bangor dog park opens

BANGOR - It may be winter, but that isn't stopping folks and their four-legged friends from enjoying a day at the park. Earlier this month, the Bangor Dog Park, located on Watchmaker Street, officially opened its gates to visitors and their canines.

"We've had nothing but positive feedback," said Dawnette Carver, acting administrator for the Bangor Dog Park volunteer group. "Phase one, which is the small dog yard, is complete. And we wanted to have something for the large dogs to play in in the winter, so right now the large dog area is only one third of the size it'll be when finished."

Reinventing the Fork

Odlin Road's My Fork to change its format for the New Year

BANGOR Bigger doesn't always mean better. My Fork, the restaurant and lounge situated on 268 Odlin Road in Bangor, is undergoing a change that will bring the owners back to their family restaurant roots.

Lewis and Dustin Littlefield are co-owners of the restaurant and are reducing the size and scope of what they offer. Rather than offering a restaurant, sports lounge and live music venue, the father-and-son team have decided to simplify and present a family-oriented restaurant with home-cooked meals in a smaller, more comfortable setting.
