Where's Wendy?

On Sunday I went to the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity, Maine. I had not been in years and it was a lot of fun seeing all the animals and checking out the local vendors. I couldn't wait to check out the food options and was excited to get a Pie Cone, which is pie in a cone. :)

Bangor synagogues defaced with anti-semitic symbols

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- A symbol of hate now marks Beth Israel Synagogue's welcome sign, the same vandalism that is on the neighboring synagogue, Beth Abraham. It is an action that many would consider a hate crime.

Sergeant Paul Edwards with the Bangor Police Department said, "Someone understands what a swastika is and what it stands for obviously. They understand what it means to the jewish community and how hateful it is."

According to police, the vandalism happened between 7:00- 7:20pm Friday night. The vandals used spray paint to deface the synagogues with swastikas. Next to the Nazi symbol was an upside down crosses with three sixes, a symbol associated with satanic worship.

UMaine falls to Albany in home opener

ORONO (NEWS CENTER) - It was a matter of execution in the red zone.  UMaine couldn't.  Albany could.  As a result, the Black Bears dropped their home opener 30-20. 

Despite outrushing Albany 247 to 135 yards, it was three Great Dane TD runs of 74, 9, and 37 yards that provided the visitors offense with just enough scores.  Albany outgained Maine by a two-to-one ratio in the air: 264 to 132 yards.

The Black Bears were shutout in a half for the second time in three games as they fell behind to the Great Danes 9-0 at the break. 

Marcus Wasilewski got Maine back in the game with a 19-yard TD pass to DaMarr Aultman in the the beginning of the third quarter make it 9-7.  However, on the very next play from scrimmage Kevin Chillis ran for that 74 yard score maintaining a two-possession cushion for the rest of the contest.
