One of the great things ... 

about The Ten is the ability to highlight so many different, interesting stories.

The news cycle certainly has ups and downs, but it feels like the cycle got ratcheted a few clicks higher recently without coming down.

So with that, we certainly do have some great stories out of our local newsroom on the important news of the week: offshore wind and its impact on clamming, the state of abortion in Maine, and more Supreme Court action on the powers of the Clean Water Act.

But I’m going to highlight a fascinating look the impact of climate change on huge Ponderosa Pines (it feels good and deep to read about trees) and a look at the loudest ever recorded sound and trying to understand it in a modern context.

Happy 4th!
