BANGOR - There are many differences between Maine and Chechnya, but a group of Chechnya citizens who recently visited the state believe they can take what they've learned here and share it with their country.

"I've seen and heard Maine is not the wealthiest state in the U.S., but we've met all kinds of people like politicians and farmers who work hard every day," said Zarman Amkhatovna Makhadzhiyeva, a coordinator for a human rights organization in Chechnya.

Bet your bottom dollar on Annie'

PTC presents modern musical favorite

BANGOR One of the most wonderful artistic traditions here in Bangor is the annual holiday production at Penobscot Theatre. It has become a vital part of this celebratory time for many area families.

For a long time, we got various and sundry adaptations of the Charles Dickens classic 'A Christmas Carol' the occasional 'Gift of the Magi' notwithstanding. In recent years, however, the offerings have diversified. We've gotten to spend time with Crumpet the Elf in David Sedaris's 'Santaland Diaries.' We've gotten the musical stylings of 'Plaid Tidings,' and we've watched Ralphie pine for a Red Ryder BB gun in 'A Christmas Story.'
