A couple quick things ... 

... to highlight this week: ten-ish of them?

We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of our Report for America reporter Ari Snider -- man, has time flown! He’s got a very evocative profile on a Ukrainian-born Mainer helping fellow Ukrainians fleeing the war settle here.

Plus, coming out next week is the next installment of our “Climate Driven” trip through all sixteen Maine counties, which brings us to Piscataquis County. Those start running on Monday!

We also have stories of women telling their abortion experiences, talking with your doctor about climate change, and abandoned Soviet nuclear bases.

Warm weather is hitting early, hope you can enjoy it!
