Study: weight depends on the quality of your diet more than quantity
Treehugger - 6/26/2011.
By Sara Novak – A fascinating new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine says that the quality of the foods that you eat has more to do with weight than the quantity of food. A new study outlined the best and worst foods for a healthy body weight. Potato chips, it turns out, are the worst food for weight gain causing more gain per serving than any other food.

Bangor Daily News - 6/25/2011.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Machias – Beekeepers across Maine are scrambling this summer to rebuild their hive populations after most experienced a weather-related 40 percent loss of bees last fall.

By Doug Harlow – Skowhegan: The Somerset Economic Development Corp. on Friday announced that it received a $250,000 grant to be used by local farmers, farm markets and food processors as part of the food hub at the Somerset Grist Mill downtown.

Bangor Daily News - 6/24/2011.
By Amy Campbell – As I write, the blossoms in our raspberry patch are busy with pollinators – a happy hour of sorts – more like a happy week or more – when bees and other insects feed or collect the pollen and nectar from the flowers. The result is a meal for them and for us a few weeks down the road when we can start picking the fruits of their activity.
