I want to let you in on ...

... a special tip.  Starting Monday we’ll have be airing the next round of our “Climate Driven” series.  This time we’re headed to Franklin County and looking at Rangely, Farmington, and the high mountain lakes of western Maine. So be sure to tune in for that and visit online at mainepublic.org/climatedriven.

Our roundup of stories in The Ten takes us to the frontlines of the PFAS crisis that is turning up on more and more Maine farmland, remembering artist and author Ashley Bryan, and pressures facing Uganda as it balances a drive to be green and produce oil.

Are you following the Winter Olympics? What’s your favorite sport? I’m always a fan for skeleton and anything involving snowboards down those twisting, tubular courses and ramps.

Stay warm,

Mark
