BANGOR - Does shopping have anything to do with your mental health? What about multitasking? Acadia Nurse Manager Eric McKeown believes it does, and is speaking at a presentation on May 23 to discuss this and other aspects of mental and emotional health. The Open Mind community education presentation will be held at Acadia Hospital as part of national mental health month. The event is free and open to the public. 

'It's a passion of mine, focusing and looking at how health and wellness intertwine,' McKeown said. One of those aspects is financial health. 

'One of the things we are going to be looking at is emotional shopping,' McKeown said, 'which is shopping to soothe emotional needs. We'll be looking at some of the consequences and stress that can come with that.' McKeown says that physical health will also be discussed.

Pulse radio introduces new dynamic duo

BANGOR - There's nothing scary about Stephen King's latest work, but he is hoping his newest project will get people talking. The well-known horror writer and Zone Radio Corporation owner has hired former U.S. Vice Presidential candidate Pat LaMarche, and former newsman Don Cookson, to host The Pulse Morning Show on WZON 103.1 FM and WZON 620 AM weekdays, starting Sept. 12.

"I've missed in-depth coverage of Maine events and politics in the Bangor market. We're going to be provocative, informative and amusing, and we think everyone will enjoy the show except for certain politicians," explained King with a chuckle.

His new team plans not only to discuss local and national politics but also homelessness, welfare, healthcare, the job market and the rising costs of education; nothing is off limits.
