Temps broke this week…

... but man that early part was tough. How’s your week been? Pretty decent for us at Maine Public HQ with stories coming in and broadcasts going out.

Woods and Waters could be headed for expansion down the road which keeps that wild place's spirit alive, but mining interests are still out there in other parts of Maine.  Read on to learn more.

The Rwandese Community celebrated a traditional harvest festival and our friends at NHPR profiled a mobile farm stand, which makes for a couple of interesting parings in this week’s edition already.

I’m going to keep going down the list for some final highlights: skateboarding brings together marginalized people, a Lyme disease drug treatment trial is underway (the first in about two decades), a crab that’s invading the Mediterranean and the genre crossing art that portrays visions of a black utopia.


Check. It. Out.

Our News & Brews Trivia nights are coming back this fall and we suggest you register your team as early as possible. These events proved to be quite popular and were maxed out with teams pretty quickly. The first step is to form a team and come up with a team name. We encourage teams to consist of no more than five persons. Next, look at the Trivia Night Schedule HERE and register your team to play by contacting Allison at [email protected]. Let her know your team’s name, the number of players on your team, and the Trivia Night event you will be attending. She’ll let you know if you are in. That’s it!

By the way, one of the question categories is “I See Your Ten and Raise You!” -- questions exclusively pulled from stories featured here in THE TEN. You are already a leg up on the competition!
