Against the Grain
Down East - 10/28/2016.
By Joel Crabtree - Decommissioned jailhouses have found second lives as museums, haunted houses, even luxury hotels – but Skowhegan’s lockup-turned-gristmill might be a first. The three-story, 14,000-square-foot edifice, once drab and utilitarian, looks decidedly Wonka-fied since Maine Grains moved in. A crisscross of yellow blocks, funnels, and chutes now adorns the redbrick building’s exterior – and though the contraption’s function is rather plain (dust collection), the look is whimsical, attracting the curiosity of passersby.
In praise of pears
The Ellsworth American - 10/26/2016.
By Cheryl Wixson - On the days when I’m not playing in the kitchen, a large part of my work is helping Maine farmers increase their sales and profitability. Connecting farms to additional wholesale markets, developing value-added products that meet consumer demand, designing commercial kitchens and integrating food safety into farm management is all part of the mix.
EU drops law to limit cancer-linked chemical in food after industry complaint
The Guardian [UK] - 10/26/2016.

1-minute hike: Hills to Sea Trail in Belfast
Bangor Daily News - 10/25/2016.
BDN reporter Aislinn Sarnacki explores the easternmost section of the new Hills to Sea Trail, a 46-mile trail that spans from Unity to Belfast. The construction of this trail began in 2013 and wrapped up in September of 2016. Marked with blue blazes and signs, this trail crosses conserved land and the private property of more than 60 landowners who have agreed to allow the trail on their land. The trail is open to foot traffic year round.
