Get more fiber
Maine Sunday Telegram - 7/12/2009.
By Ray Routhier – Amanda Clark was about 12 years old when she saw a sign advertising weaving lessons, and convinced her mother to let her try. You wouldn't think a centuries-old craft would have that strong of an appeal for a 21st-century girl, but Clark had always been drawn to the idea of designing and making useful things. "I've always liked working with my hands and creating things, and I had seen a kid's loom in a catalog and thought it looked interesting," said Clark, now 18, of Standish. "But I wanted to try the real thing."

Three nonprofit groups announced last week that they are working with state and federal regulators to purchase fishing rights, which they will share with local fishermen who help study and rebuild fish populations.

Bangor Daily News - 7/11/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Increased suicide among farmers is a national trend and Maine is not exempt. “They don’t call it a depression for nothin’,” one Maine farmer, who asked not to be identified, said recently. Earlier this year, a farmer in southern Maine hanged himself in his barn. Recently, two central Maine farmers in separate communities – one an organic milk producer – shot and killed themselves.
