Cities, towns get ready for Election Day

The Bangor Civic Center will be open for voting beginning at 7 a.m. Tuesday until 8 p.m. Due to construction of the new Bangor arena, the only way voters will be able to enter Bass Park is through the Buck Street entrance. You can then find a place to park and enter the civic center through the 'Grandstand Entrance.' Officials say election workers will also be driving golf carts on Tuesday at Bass Park to help voters who need assistance getting into the civic center.

Triple murder suspect Nicholas Sexton pleads not guilty

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The second suspect of Bangor's triple homicide made his first appearance in a Penobscot courtroom. 31-year old Nicholas Sexton plead not guilty to all counts.

David Bates, one of Sexton's attorneys, said, "We haven't seen one single piece of discovery yet, not one police report. So we are not really in any position to make a comment on the case other than our client is presumed innocent and we are going to give him the best defense we possibly can."

The Warwick Rhode Island native faces three counts murder and one count arson.

Movies: "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"

Movies: "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"

 

Think of the very best high school coming-of-age movies: “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” “16 Candles,” “Dazed and Confused,” maybe “10 Things I Hate about You.”

 

Although it has its moments, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” is not one of them.

 

Directed by Stephen Chbosky, who also wrote the popular novel of the same name, “Wallflower” tries to cram every possible youthful experience into the first year in high school of a kid named Charlie (Logan Lerman, who played the kid in “3:10 to Yuma”).  First love, first acid trip, first heartbreak, you name it.

Bees Gone! CCD?

Bees Gone!  CCD?

Tragedy has struck our hives!  One of them has NO BEES!  This hive was our most vibrant and active all summer long.  When I put the second medication pack in a few weeks ago the bees were there, now they are not.  They left all their larve and all their honey.   It just doesn't make sense.  Perhaps it is CCD or colony collapse disorder?  Bees from the other two hives are in there now just robbing all the honey.  It really is very upsetting.

Dozens come to Bangor for annual arts and crafts show

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- Dozens of people headed over to the Bangor Civic Center this weekend to do some local shopping for the holiday season.

The civic center hosted the annual 'Bangor Arts and Craft Show,' which is one of eight shows put on each year by 'United Maine Craftsmen.' More than 80 vendors were on hand to sell pottery, decorations and tasty 'made in Maine' treats.

'United Maine Craftsmen' represents about 300 artisans from around the state. Directors say shows like this weekend's go a long way in helping them keep up business.

"They can work for themselves and have that creative outlet and have this opportunity to sell their wares here," said Aletha Boyle, who is the president of the organization, "and then they are keeping all this money in the state of Maine and they're self employed which is huge! It's amazing to be able to do that."
