Bill Bags a Buck!

Most of us have heard lots of gun shots this past month.  One of them was fired by Bill Green who downed this 9-point, 191 pound buck while hunting in Gray.  Bill, who lives in Cumberland, has had a very successful year afield.  He also bagged an enormous turkey in the spring. It was the fifth largest turkey taken in Maine this year.
Bill says his family will still be eating a Butterball on Thanksgiving Day, but is planning to have some venison for his son and nephew who are coming to his house from respective colleges on Wednesday night. The three hunted together this spring and hope to get a few hours in the field over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Families hunting together on Thanksgiving is the reason that the traditional deer hunting season always ends the Saturday after Thanksgiving in Maine.  The season lasts for four weeks, with the first Saturday reserved for residents only.

Childsplay in concert

The fiddle extravaganza known as Childsplay will be appearing in Portland on Saturday evening, December 4th at 8 PM at the Portland High School Auditorium. Childsplay features some of the best fiddlers in the nation, from Boston Symphony violinists to all-Ireland fiddle champions to national fiddling champions. Formed in 1986, the special sound of Childsplay lies not only in the skill of the musicians but in the warm familial timbre of the instruments they play – a quality similar to the vocal blending of singers from the same family. Known to its audience as a celebration of spirited, innovative, and exuberant music, this special evening will allow the audience a rare glimpse into the intricate weavings of the beautiful singing of Mollie O'Brien (if you listen to Prairie Home Companion you have heard Mollie sing many times!)  with the voices of the violins made by the same violinmaker.
