Respite in Sarah’s Dream [Video]

Sarah had a passion for music, and great compassion for easing the burden of others.

When she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 24, she and her husband Ben, would travel from Maine to Boston for Sarah's treatment. Not only was the young couple dealing with Sarah's diagnosis and the impact that would have on their future, they had to deal with frequent trips that were both exhausting and expensive.

Before Sarah passed away in 2011, she had already invested her time and determination to lay the foundation for the creation of a special home-away-from-home. A house that would serve as a warm and inviting space for weary travelers undergoing cancer treatments at the Lafayette Family Cancer Treatment Center in Brewer.

So Who Likes this Cold Weather?

Maine's maple syrup producers like the cold weather and they're already tapping trees for sap.

Many of us "old timers" relate to the image of buckets, or milk jugs, attached to trees in the spring in Maine, to capture the naturally running sap, and many of us assumed the sap ran from the top of the mature tree, down to the ground.

However, emerging science suggests otherwise, and the innovation in sap collection could result in quite a boon for the maple syrup industry in New England.
