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.

Eggy Smiles and New Opportunities [Video]

When I woke up this morning to realize that the listeners of Q106.5 had not only given, but pushed us well over this year's goal for the egg ride, I was ready and willing to do my part.

After a great breakfast at the Hungry Holllow 76'ERS Snowmobile Club in Levant all of the egg riders got dressed and loaded up with eggs.

Can Someone Please Pass the Paper Towels? [VIDEO]

And it better be that quicker, picker-upper sort of brand too, because Mainers take care of Mainers, and that inevitably means I'm going to be slathered up in eggs Saturday.

I'm okay with the sloppy and nasty idea though because it means we're putting your cash contributions to good use at the Pine Tree Camp in Rome, Maine.

Ice Fishing Enthusiasts Feed the Hungry in Maine

Mainers always help Mainers, and one statewide program is expanding to put fresh fish into the hands of those who need it the most; the poor and hungry.

'Tis the season for ice fishing derbies and one angler has figured out a way to deal with regulations, making it possible for weigh-in fish from derbies to be distributed to hunger-relief agencies.

A new pilot project in southern Maine is being coordinated through the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Foresty's Hunters for the Hungry Program.

When you're broke, regardless of how you got there, having to find the means to pay for food, shelter, clothing and medicine can be difficult enough.

Unfortunately, for several months of the year in Maine, you also have to worry about freezing to death, and heating your home is not cheap these days.

That's where the Knights of Columbus come in, and just in time, as the Thaw Fund operated by the Washington Hancock Community Agency (WHCA) is empty.
