We are sure you were as shocked as we were to realize it has been 25 years since THAT hockey season. It just doesn’t seem possible, but math backs it up. There’s even a commemorative documentary being released on April 3. If you’re up for a trip down memory lane, check out www.hockey25.com (we have no affiliation with the site). At least now we can all blame any hazy memories on the passage of time. That same math informs us that next year is significant for the Class of 1994. That’s right, it’s the big TWO – FIVE. Consider this an official reminder that you have plans to attend Homecoming next year. Don’t worry — we won’t let you forget.

Ever since Laurence “Skip” Lisle received his graduate degree in wildlife management, he has been working to solve the problem of beavers damning culverts and flooding rural roads. Skip has developed a “beaver deceiver,” which includes a 15-inch pipe connecting two mesh enclosures. This device allows water to flow through a culvert despite beavers following their instinct to block the flow of water. Skip’s work has taken him all over the country and overseas, where he helps others to protect culverts without killing the beavers.
Andrea Carver, a behavioral health case manager, recently had a position riding with Bangor police officers as part of a Maine Substance Abuse Assistant grant from the Department of Public Safety. The pilot program allowed Andrea to work with the police to help people in crisis who have mental and/or substance abuse issues. Despite its success, the Maine Legislature did not fund the program for 2018.
