    Thin ice and hungry deer

    In spite of near-daily warnings, snowmobilers continue to venture on thin ice and open water. Most of these accidents end in a safe recovery, but sadly, a few have had tragic outcomes. Although we are deep into the month of January, ice conditions in the Midcoast and Central Maine are far from normal.

    Taking a cool winter’s hike

    After graduating college and moving to Rockland I have become much less of a social creature. I've gone from an active community of students my age in a 'work-hard, play-hard' atmosphere to the real world where I practice a 'work-hard-then-sleep-so-I-can-be-ready-for-my-job-tomorrow' lifestyle. I am a social creature and love to spend time around people. So, this transition has been somewhat difficult for ...

    At few other times during the year do road runners really need to worry about the weather, but on Sunday, in what has become an annual Midcoast January 5-kilometer road race tradition, certainly was one of those times. Sunday's Set the Pace 5K in Camden was run in temperatures in the 20s, which was much warmer than last year's inaugural event that was run in a windchill of below zero.
