The most significant environmental issue facing the Kennebec River Valley is restoring sea-run fish to parts of the river, which were once their breeding grounds.
The Kennebec River is a 170-mile long river that begins at Moosehead Lake. It winds its way to the Atlantic Ocean past Madison, Skowhegan, Waterville, the state capital of Augusta, and the shipbuilding center of Bath. Finally, it flows into the freshwater tidal bay of Merr...

No matter how you feel about the subject, marijuana sales are legal in Maine. The problem remains to find a legal shop to buy what you want.
The first day of legal pot sales was 9 October 2020, almost four years after Maine voters approved the initiative. At that time, there was only one store open for recreational sales in Bangor, Maine, which was Firestorm.
Although, Firestorm is not the only game in Bangor since the Brothe...
Some of the best adventures I had in my life were in the Army. Considering that I spent 28 years there, you would kind of expect that, wouldn’t you?
When I was headed to Germany from Fort Dix, NJ in April of 1976, the guy driving me to JFK airport had a flat tire and no spare. It took us a while to get to the garage, get the tire repaired, and head north again.
All the while, I was a bundle of nerves worrying about I would miss my flight and be considered absent without leave (AWOL).
By the t...
What many of us neglect to add to our writing schedule are all the other things we do besides writing. Writing is only a small portion of what we do as “writers.”
There’s Always Research, a Little or a Lot
Writing takes a lot of effort. Before you can even begin to write, there is the research. You might spend twice as much time researching a subject as writing about it, depending on how much knowledge you have about the subject.
I usually read two or three articles about an issue before I wr...
Some experts seem to think Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies could see their trading prices elevate sharply during the coming months, especially Bitcoin with its halving.
Some of you are rightfully laughing right now as you read this, seeing as how Bitcoin has taken a downward plunge along with the world’s stock markets since the escalation of the Coronavirus. However, if you look back over the previous week or so, you would see Bitcoin kicking and scratching to get out of those holes.
Many of my friends say, “Ew, you eat Tofu?” I say, “Absolutely!”
I will cook cheesy tofu as an appetizer for many meals! My family and I love it. At first, the kids would turn up their nose, but once they tasted it, they don’t anymore.
Tofu really doesn’t have much flavor on its own, so it takes on the essence of its marinade, sauce, or soup. It is naturally gluten-free with only a few calories per serving. There’s no cholesterol, but it’s an excellent calcium and iron source.
Plus, only 5 gr...
The majority of trucking firms are on the up and up, and want to take care of their drivers. Walmart, for instance, may not pay its cashiers very well, but they pay their drivers up to $90,000 a year.
After all, if not for the drivers, they would not be able to deliver the goods and collect the transport fees. However, there are unscrupulous fleet owners who abuse the trust and respect the driver gives them.
Some crooked trucking fleets are charging truckers $300 to $500 a week to lease a veh...
How would you like to write about your Saturday morning coffee with a friend at your favorite little bistro or barista? Maybe you want to write about your child’s part in a play and provide a quick video? The opportunities and subjects are limitless when you choose any of these areas and more:

This is a collection of my 100-Word Stories or Micro Fictions. I am sharing these again so that I could add audio to these. Now, everyone, even the sight-impaired, can enjoy them.
So, we have decided we do not want children. This world is filled with hate. Climate change is killing our planet. How can we survive?
Even if there is a “Battlestar Galactica” type flotilla to take us to a distant planet, what if they say only two can go? Could we make the sacrifice? It is such a difficult choice...
The best and most cost-efficient method to save money on your home energy bills is to maintain and repair existing home heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. However, there are several low-cost ways to save on energy and protect the environment.
The adage, “A penny saved is a penny earned” is just as valid today as it was in your grandparents’ days. Another saying from Poor Richard’s Almanack by Ben Franklin along that same line is, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” No...

“So write. One page at a time, or one word at a time. And consider: If you can turn out two pages a day for two years, you will have written 1,460 pages, a manuscript the length of Gone with the Wind. It may be a lousy 1,460-page man...
