Third annual Hancock County Food Drive kicks off March 1

The Third Annual Hancock County Food Drive kicks off March 1 and it couldn’t happen at a better time. More than 44 percent of Hancock County children qualified for reduced school lunches in 2013 but hunger doesn’t go away at the end of the school day.  Those children often go to bed hungry and spend the weekend that way. Fifteen percent of all Maine households lack access to nutritious food.  During the winter that number goes even higher as Mainers struggle to pay for heating their homes. The prolonged periods of frigid temperatures, rising fuel prices and the number of storms have combined to make it even more difficult this year. That creates an extra strain on local food pantries and community meal sites which have seen their numbers swell in recent months.

MDIF&W: Free Snowmobile Weekend Slated for January 31-February 2

Snowmobilers in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont will have a chance to get outside their own state and discover new trails for free during the Reciprocal Snowmobile Weekend that will take place Jan. 31 thru February 2, 2014. This open weekend allows all legally registered Maine snowmobiles to be operated in New Hampshire and Vermont without being registered in those states.

It also means that all snowmobiles legally registered in New Hampshire and Vermont can be operated in Maine without a current Maine registration. Snowmobilers can explore more than 14,000 miles of Maine’s interconnected, groomed and marked trails.

The Maine Warden Service reminds snowmobilers to ride with caution at all times.
