BREAKING NEWS: Knox County Sheriff's Office Saves Two

BREAKING NEWS: Warren, Maine - At approximately 10:30 p.m. last night, Knox County Regional Communications Center advised deputies that they were starting rescue units to Finntown Rd. in Warren for a report of two unresponsive males in a vehicle.  They were also advised that it was reported the two had been using drugs.  Deputy Arthur Smith arrived and found one male laying face down in the road and a female attempting chest compressions on him.  The other male was sitting upright in a vehicle.  Deputy Smith administered his “Narcan” that all deputies carry to both individuals until Deputy Alicia Averill arrived and Deputy Smith had to administer her dosage as well to the two.  A short time later, ambulances from Warren and Waldoboro arrived and took over care of the two males that had become responsive at this time.  Both males were transported to Pen-Bay Medical Center and shortly after arrival left the hospital against medical advice. 

Deputies have talked to the witnesses at the scene and an investigation will be pursued into the drug use.

Maine Lobster Festival Announces 2018 Grand Marshal

Rockland, Maine - The Maine Lobster Festival is excited to announce the United States Coast Guard Station Rockland as the 2018 Grand Marshal in the Big Parade.

The USCG Rockland Personnel have been volunteers at the Maine Lobster Festival for many years; volunteering at the cooker, serving up lobster in the food tent, escorting our Sea Princesses at the Sea Goddess Coronation, providing security during entertainment, and marching their Color Guard in the Big Parade. The Maine Lobster Festival is honored to celebrate them as our Grand Marshal. The day of the parade also happens to be the U.S. Coast Guard’s 228th birthday.

In addition to being Festival volunteers, Coast Guard personnel are also active throughout the year volunteering with Rockland Main Street to build the famous Lobster Trap Tree that kicks off the Festival of Lights Celebration, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and the Pope Memorial Animal Shelter, reading in our local grade schools, and coaching for Special Olympics.

The United States Coast Guard, one of the country's five armed services, is a unique agency of the federal government. They trace their history back to August 4, 1790, when the first Congress authorized the construction of ten vessels to enforce tariff and trade laws, prevent smuggling, and protect the collection of the federal revenue. Known variously as the Revenue Marine and the Revenue Cutter Service, they expanded in size and responsibilities as the nation grew.

In times of peace they operate as part of the Department of Homeland Security, serving as the nation's front-line agency for enforcing our laws at sea, protecting our coastline and ports, and saving lives. In times of war, or on direction of the President, they serve under the Navy Department.

The Big Parade will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 4, on Rockland’s Main Street. This year it will feature the Grand Marshal, the Sea Princesses and their escorts, and the newly crowned 2018 Maine Sea Goddess. King Neptune and his court will also be making an appearance. Bands, marching units, and drill teams, along with different floats will be there as well to ensure an entertaining and lively parade.

About the Maine Lobster Festival

With five days of fun and feasting on the fabulous coast of Maine, the Maine Lobster Festival attracts thousands of people to the Midcoast region and has a long tradition of giving back to the local community. In recent years, the festival committee has given more than $500,000 to Midcoast Regional Child Development Services, Trekkers, Meals on Wheels, and many other organizations. The 2018 Festival will be held August 1-5.

For more information about the Maine Lobster Festival, visit the website at www.mainelobsterfestival.com and “like” them on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter at @MELobsterFest.

Schooner Adventure Visits Rockland June 30th





Rockland, Maine - Schooner Adventure gaff rigged knockabout schooner will be visiting Rockland, Maine on June 30th, 2018.


She will be open to visitors from 3 to 5pm with a reception from 5:30 to 7pm at Sail Power Steam Museum (75 Mechanic Street in Rockland, Maine.


Schooner Adventure was built in Essex, Massachusetts, and launched in 1926 to work the Grand Banks fishing grounds near Gloucester.

VIDEO SPECIAL: Kayaker survives 17 hours in Long Island Sound




For 12 years, Mike Diaz fished the waters of Long Island Sound from his kayak. He ventured out, escaping the bustle of Long Island to explore and maybe catch a fluke, porgy, striped bass, or sea robin.
Throwing on his life jacket was part of his routine. Just as he wouldn’t forget his fishing pole or bait, he never forgot his life jacket.
On Oct. 7, 2017, Diaz set out on a late season trip, launching from his usual spot at Lloyd Neck Beach. The weather was mild through the early autumn and Diaz wanted to squeeze in another outing before winter.
After spending most of the day near shore, he eventually ventured farther - hoping to land a big fish to round out his season.
The weather forecast had a storm coming in the next day, but as Diaz made his way back to the boat launch, he found the weather had already shifted.
The winds and seas picked up, and water crashed over and into his kayak. He tried to bale the water out but couldn’t keep up. Unable to dewater, he worked to get to the nearest beach.
As he headed for the beach, the kayak became unstable and capsized. He leashed the kayak to himself to swim the last 100 yards to shore, but now he was swimming against the tide.
Knowing he was in trouble, he went into his dry box to get his phone and call for help, but the dry box had failed and his phone was shorted out.
It wouldn’t be until the next morning, when his roommate reported him missing, that anyone would begin searching for him.
Diaz spent all night treading water and fighting tides. Through the night the tide crisscrossed him between the Connecticut and New York sides of the sound.
“I knew there was a clock ticking,” said Diaz. “Your thoughts do start running into hypothermia - ‘am I going to be found on a beach someplace?’ ”
But Diaz shook those thoughts.
“As long as my PFD is keeping me above water - I’ll cross those bridges when they occur,” he said.
Determined, he remained focused on looking for any opportunity to rescue himself.
Finally he spotted a lighthouse off Connecticut’s coast.
He put his head down and swam. After over an hour of swimming, and more than 17 hours in the water, he put his hand on the ladder leading to the lighthouse.
Once Diaz was out of the water, he signaled to a passing fishing boat crew and was quickly rescued.
Diaz attributes his survival to wearing his life jacket and the fact that other more experienced kayakers stressed safety measures when he first began kayaking.
In the Northeast, there were 54 recreational boating deaths in 2017. Thirty-nine of the 54 people who died were not wearing a life jacket and 19 out of the 54 deaths involved a paddle craft.

Mill Street in Lisbon to be Closed

Lisbon, Maine - Mill Street in Lisbon will be closed to all vehicles and pedestrians from June 25th through October 20th in order to build a new Mill Street Bridge.

Mill Street will be closed and traffic detoured approximately 2.5 miles around the site onto Upland Road and Route 196.

The existing two-span, concrete beam bridge which spans the Sabattus River, was built in 1926. It will be demolished and replaced with a new 85-foot, single-span concrete beam bridge. The new bridge is expected to last nearly 100 years.

In addition, 400-feet of roadway will be reconstructed and upgrades to both water and gas utilities will be installed.

This $1.4 million project will be performed by Reed & Reed of Woolwich

Patricia O'Toole Hosts Reception at Pascal Hall to Celebrate New Book & the Camden Public Library

Camden, Maine - Camden author Patricia O'Toole welcomes guests to the lovely Pascal Hall in Rockport on Friday, June 29 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm for the benefit of the Camden Public Library. The evening will be a wine and cheese reception to celebrate the publication of her latest book, The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made. All are welcome to this free event, but registration is requested for planning purposes. Please RSVP to Cayla Miller at the Camden Public Library at cmiller@librarycamden.org. Books will be available for sale and signing, thanks to the Owl & Turtle Bookshop Cafe, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Library.

Patricia O’Toole is the author of five books, including The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made, When Trumpets Call: Theodore Roosevelt after the White House, and The Five of Hearts: An Intimate Portrait of Henry Adams and His Friends, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. A former professor in the School of the Arts at Columbia University and a fellow of the Society of American Historians, she lives in Camden, Maine.

President from 1913 to 1921, Woodrow Wilson set a high bar for himself and the country. No president has believed more fervently in the primacy of morality in politics or the “moral force” of ideas, according to O'Toole.  In The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made (Simon & Schuster; April 24, 2018), O’Toole measures Wilson by his own standards. She revisits the presidency as it was a century ago and rethinks many of the standard interpretations of Woodrow Wilson and his legacy. The result is an emotionally discerning, richly detailed portrait of a president whose ideas and actions had a profound and lasting effect on the United States and the world.

The Moralist recounts Wilson’s religious upbringing, his academic career, and his early leadership experiences as president of Princeton University and governor of New Jersey. The book evaluates his unprecedented success with Congress, his grand vision of a peaceful world order, his moral blind spots—on race, women’s suffrage, and free speech in wartime—and the tragedy of a final defeat that was largely self-inflicted. Moral considerations inspired his biggest ideas, his most important acts, and his greatest political battles, according to O’Toole. “Because democracy rests on the consent of the governed, [Wilson] believed it the most moral form of government, and like many Americans before and since, he believed that the success of American democracy made the United States a morally superior nation. Wilson also believed in the power of ‘moral force,’ by which he meant the power of ideas and actions aligned with moral principles” (page 2).  He made morality a hallmark of his leadership. For much of his presidency, it was an invaluable asset. But ultimately, O’Toole argues, his righteousness veered into self-righteousness and played a major part in his downfall.
