Governor Mills Signs Executive Order Ending Maine Wind Turbine Moratorium

Augusta, MAINE – Governor Janet Mills signed an Executive Order yesterday to end a moratorium on wind turbine permits. This order clarifies that state agencies with the legal authority to issue permits can once again do their work with Maine’s local communities and stakeholders to determine which projects should go forward.
“It is time for Maine to send a positive signal to renewable energy investors and innovators – We welcome you,” said Governor Mills. “This Executive Order will allow our state to conduct a transparent vetting of all wind projects, onshore and offshore, to ensure they respect Maine communities and our environment while helping to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Today, we another take a step towards embracing a clean energy future for Maine.”

EMCC's Nursing Program Earns Best in Maine Ranking

Bangor, Maine - Eastern Maine Community College (EMCC) has been
recognized by RegisteredNursing.org, a nursing advocacy organization, as the #1 registered
nursing program in Maine. (https://www.registerednursing.org/state/maine/#rankings)

Nursing programs were assessed on several factors which represent how well a program
supports students towards licensure and beyond. They also analyzed past and present first time
NCLEX-RN pass rates weighted by year. Through this analysis it was found that EMCC had the
best statistics in all of Maine. To read more about the criteria and methodology used visit:
https://www.registerednursing.org/rn-ranking-methodology/

Pilar Burmeister, Director of the Nursing Program, says “I am most proud of my students, both in
the program and alumni, because they leave EMCC and reflect positively on the program
through their professionalism and dedication to caring for their patients. The foundation the
program provides to our students gives them the confidence and skills to provide the highest
level of nursing care. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than receiving positive feedback from
the community and employers about our alumni.”

She goes on to say that this news has given her, and the other nursing faculty and staff, a
tremendous sense of pride, knowing that their hardwork and dedication to their students is
paying off.

Governor Mills Unveils First Biennial Budget Proposal

Governor fully funds Medicaid expansion, injects $126 million into K-12 education, protects the rainy day fund, and does not raise taxes
Augusta, MAINE – A little more than a month into office, Governor Janet Mills today submitted her first biennial budget to the State Legislature. The proposal fully funds voter-approved Medicaid expansion, creates a Medicaid Reserve Account with contingency funding, invests an additional $126 million in K-12 education, and builds progress towards voluntary universal pre-K and a $40,000 minimum teacher salary – all without increasing taxes and while protecting the rainy day fund.

“As Governor my priority has always been to solve problems – to marshal every sector of government and every private organization, business, and person to come together, identify the challenges we face, and create responsible solutions that improve life for every person in Maine,” said Governor Mills. “This budget honors the demands of Maine people who have voted again and again for more health care, not less; for investments in education and our classrooms, not cuts; for better roads, lower property taxes, treatment for their loved ones suffering from substance use disorder, and for a state that believes everybody should have a fair shot at a better life. This budget represents a responsible, pragmatic approach that advances our goals while living within our means.”

The budget also includes $5.5 million to combat the opioid epidemic, increases in revenue sharing and property tax relief, funding for a Washington County Pre-Release Center, 15 new state troopers and sergeants, and funding to fill public health nursing vacancies, among other initiatives.

“Make no mistake, we have work to do, but the future of Maine is bright. We will rebuild state government and create one Maine, undivided,” added Governor Mills. “Every day, innovators, small businesses, teachers, farmers, fishermen, health care providers, volunteers, and neighbors are helping one another and powering our economy. It is time for state government to join them in doing our part to create a bright future for us all. I look forward to working with the State Legislature on this proposal moving forward.”

Read an overview of Governor Mills’ budget proposal.

In unveiling the budget during a press conference today, Governor Mills was joined by Department of Administrative and Financial Services Commissioner Kirsten Figueroa, Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Jeanne Lambrew and Department of Education Commissioner Pender Makin.

Governor Mills is scheduled to deliver her State of the Budget address scheduled next Monday, February 11th at 7:00 p.m.

#8/11 Saint Joseph’s Outlasts Emmanuel, 79-69

STANDISH, Maine - #8/11 Saint Joseph’s College (22-0, 10-0 GNAC) withstood a late rally to defeat Emmanuel College (17-5, 8-1 GNAC), 79-69, in a battle of Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s basketball heavyweights at the Harold Alfond Center on Tuesday evening.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
Saint Joseph’s, ranked eighth and 11th nationally in this week’s D3hoops.com and WBCA national polls, respectively, came out of the gates strong and held a game-high 20-point (34-14) lead after senior guard Hannah Marks (Waldoboro, Maine) drained a three-pointer with 7:07 left in the second quarter. The Monks carried a 47-31 lead into intermission after shooting an even 50% (17-34) from the floor in the first two quarters combined.
Emmanuel dominated the third quarter, however, and methodically climbed back into the game by shooting 69.2% (9-13) from the field en route to outscoring the Monks by a 22-8 margin in the penultimate period.
The Saints closed out the third frame on a 16-4 run to cut the SJC lead down to 55-53 and tied the game on their first possession in the fourth quarter when senior center Mary McCarthy (Scituate, Mass.) connected on a layup attempt.
With the help of three trifectas from Marks, the Monks mounted an 18-6 surge to claim a 73-61 cushion with 1:24 remaining. The Saints cut their deficit down to eight points (75-67) after freshman guard Molly deBettencourt (Oak Bluffs, Mass.) drilled a pair of three-pointers in a matter of 30 seconds, but Marks and senior guard Kelsi McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) combined to go 4-for-4 from the FT line to close out the game.
MILESTONE MET:
With a layup at the 6:25 mark of the second quarter, senior guard Julia Champagne (Brunswick, Maine) became the 25th member of the Monks’ 1,000-Point Club. She entered tonight’s contest nine points shy of the four-digit mark and finished the evening with 11 points. McNamara was credited with the assist on Champagne’s milestone bucket.
Champagne joins a pair of classmates – McNamara and Emily Benway (Rochester, N.H.) – in the SJC 1,000-Point Club, marking the first time in program history that three members of the same graduating class have netted 1,000 or more career points.
STATS OF THE GAME:
Saint Joseph’s scored 30 points off 21 Emmanuel turnovers…The Saints scored eight points on nine Monk miscues on the evening.
LEADERS – SAINT JOSEPH’S:
·      McNamara led all players with 30 points and added eight assists, three steals, three rebounds, and a pair of blocked shots
·      Marks added 21 points off a 5-for-12 three-point shooting performance and added four rebounds and four assists
·      Champagne chipped in with 11 points, three rebounds, and three steals
·      Sophomore guard Jordan Jabar (Waterville, Maine) contributed nine points and nine rebounds – including six on the offensive glass
·      Benway added eight points and eight caroms

MDIFW NEWS: Man rescued in Washington County


Baileyville, Maine: February 5, 2019 - A Baileyville man escapes injury after his ATV breaks through thin ice in Washington County. At about 3:00 yesterday afternoon, ice fishermen witnessed an ATV break through the ice into open water on Grand Falls Flowage, across from Squirrel Point boat landing. The operator of the Can-Am ATV was 56-year-old, Mike Murphy. Murphy was not injured and managed to get to Walls Island to wait for help. Poor ice conditions between the island and the mainland prevented him from getting back to safety.

Game Wardens Brad Richard, Joey Gardner, and Baileyville Fire Chief John McPhee utilized the Maine Warden Service airboat to access Murphy. The ATV was retrieved from the open water and towed back to shore. Ice conditions in this area are often poor according to game wardens. Baileyville Police & Fire Department, Passamaquoddy Warden Service, Downeast EMS, Maine State Police and the Maine Warden Service responded. Attached photos courtesy of the Maine Warden Service.

“​Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields & Clouded Skies” at The Grand on Tuesday, February 12th

ELLSWORTH, Maine- The Grand presents on the giant Coastal Eye Care screen a series of great “Art on Screen” tours in hi definition and through its state-of-the-art digital projection system beginning on February 12th at 6 pm with “Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields & Clouded Skies.” Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, and $8 for Grand Members for general admission seating, and are available at The Grand box office (207) 667-9500 or online at www.grandonline.org.

A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included. The program, “Amid wheat fields and clouded skies” at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helene’s heritage. This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Gogh’s art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, ‘au premier coup’ canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found. (2017. UK 1 hr. 10 min. Produced by Nexo Digital and 3d Produzioni. Not Rated.)
