Troop B CLICK IT or TICKET results

Between November 15th and November 28th Troop B participated in the national CLICK IT or TICKET campaign by conducting various high visibility traffic enforcement details throughout Androscoggin, Cumberland and Oxford Counties. Troopers were assigned to conduct 4 hour details on highways that had been identified as areas that had unusually high number of automobile crashes. These highways include Route 4 from Auburn to Livermore, Route 2 from Bethel to Rumford, Route 302 from Windham to Bridgton, Route 26 from South Paris to Bethel, and Route 100 in Gray and New Gloucester.
15 separate details were conducted. Most of the details involved dedicated patrols focusing on traffic enforcement work specifically looking for seatbelt usage. Troop B Commander, Lt. Walter Grzyb was pleased with the results. Troopers made 254 vehicle contacts. A contact is either a traffic stop or a contact made during a safety road check. Lt.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Project Grants Awarded

Recently the Maine Commission for Community Service challenged communities across Maine to develop volunteer service projects that unite community sectors in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Our challenge was met with an overwhelming response of 26 grant applications. We are happy to announce, the Maine Commission for Community Service, awarded 16 organizations $500 grants to implement Martin Luther King Day of Service Projects.
We encourage local citizens to contact a project in their community and take part in the Martin Luther King Day of Service. This special day of service is an important way for Maine’s people to experience the significance of service, volunteerism and collaboration amongst their neighbors. These service projects will not only impact their communities, but celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his commitment to service, non-violence, and diversity.

Recycling Records Broken Every Month

ecomaine has broken its own recycling record every month for the past 12 months. From December 2009 through November 2010, its recycling facility has averaged 5,404,660 pounds per month and the organization expects that average to continue increasing well into 2011. Chairman of the Board of Directors Michael Bobinsky, who is Portland’s Director of Public Services, said, “Our educational outreach about the importance of recycling – both environmentally and fiscally – has been a major factor in convincing more people to make recycling a part of their daily routine.”

The fiscal impact, according to Bobinsky, from increased recycling for municipalities, universities, and businesses is significant because the cost of trash disposal is far greater than the cost of recycling.

Camp Sunshine Completes John T. Gorman Foundation’s $250,000 Matching Challenge

Foundation’s Gift  and Support From Others Will Endow 20 Family Sponsorship Funds in Perpetuity at the Nation’s Only Retreat for Sick Children and Their Families

CASCO, Maine — Dec. 15, 2010 — Camp Sunshine today announced it has met the $250,000 Matching Challenge issued by the John T. Gorman Foundation. In December 2009, the John T. Gorman Foundation vowed to match 2010 gifts exceeding $25,000, up to $250,000. With just one month left to reach the goal, Jack’s Magic Bean Fund, founded by the Ramsdens, a Camp Sunshine bereavement family, committed its second gift of $50,000 this year, to meet the final milestone.

The John T.Gorman Foundation was founded by the late John T. (“Tom”) Gorman, of Yarmouth, Maine, in 1995, and its mission is to improve the lives of Maine residents through grants in five core focus areas, one of which is improving care for those suffering from cancer.
