The Miracle Worker' engages, inspires

Orono Community Theatre presents stage classic

ORONO One of the most touching and inspirational stories ever to grace the American stage has been brought to life in Orono.

Orono Community Theatre's production of 'The Miracle Worker' - written by William Gibson as an adaptation of Helen Keller's autobiography 'The Story of My Life' and directed by Angela Bonacasa is now playing at the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre on the University of Maine campus. The show runs through January 24.

'The Miracle Worker' tells the story of young Helen Keller (Sophia Mullins), a girl struck blind and deaf by an illness in her infancy. Despite the best efforts of her mother (Amy Moran) and father (Mark Bilyk), there doesn't seem to be any way to reach Helen, whose frustration and anger spill over into uncontrollable tantrums that dominate the household.

Wintery Mix

Editor's note: Wire reports contributed to parts of this story.

For a long time, this winter wasn't really acting like a winter. Balmy temperatures, not-so-white Christmas, open water just about everywhere. Well, now that it's mid-January things are starting to normalize. We've had a couple of decent-sized weather events and soon those who enjoy being out in the cold will be able to do so.

If you're one of those people, you probably know a fair thing about what the state has to offer in terms of outdoor winter activities. But if you're new, or made a resolution to get out and play in the snow, here's a few things you can try.

Caveat: Yes, we've had some snow and colder temperatures, but that doesn't mean waterways have frozen solid in that amount of time, or that all the snowmobile trails are open. If you aren't sure, check with your local clubs or state organization about your trip. It spoils everyone's fun if your Skidoo falls through the ice or bottoms out on a log. Be careful and have fun.

2016 Cold Weather Driving Tips

Editor's Note: This story ran in January 2014; it has been updated.

For about half the year we have to drive in snowy, icy weather. But every year it seems like we have to relearn how to do it I think it really comes down to an intense desire to never have to drive in such a mess again, so we suppress the memories. Whatever the reason, tips about driving in icy conditions are always handy.

Slow down. The biggest issue with driving in snow is that the speed at which you can lose control of your vehicle is much lower than in nice conditions. Stopping takes more time, accelerating takes more time everything takes more time. So whether you're pulling out into traffic or following another vehicle, make sure you have plenty of room for the maneuver.

Time Waster: 'Coloruid'

'Coloruid' is a challenging and unique color-based game. You have a certain number of moves depending on the level. You can select from five colors (blue, green, pink, yellow and orange) and use them to fill in other colors. What makes this game interesting is that there are physics at play, and the color blobs are not always static. They can ooze out of their designated spots, and when you fill in a color with a new one, each of the boxes shakes, and it can change up your playing field.

The problem with Lyme

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.'
