Cooking at the Cove: The taste of August

What does August taste like? For me it tastes like crispy fried chicken eaten while sitting on a picnic blanket spread in the shade. It tastes like fresh-picked corn, juicy tomatoes, colorful bell peppers, glossy basil and, most of all, the indigo sweetness of wild Maine blueberries. The day my orga...

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will keep their promises, support a job creating economy with tax cuts and deregulation, lower medicine prices, increased wages, better trade agreements and secure borders. President Trump acted quickly to stop Chinese travelers from coming to the US and to invest in ventilators, medicines and vaccines to fight COVID-19. President Trump supports peace and freedom through fair elections and a strong military. President Trump supports justice and law & order through trained police and judges who interpret laws and the US Constitution. Donald Trump and his Senate approved judicial appointments will uphold the US Constitution with its separation of powers, checks and balances, and Bill of Rights including the First Amendment Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion and the Second Amendment. Please vote for Senator Susan Collins and the entire Republican ticket on or before Tuesday November 3rd!

Hi! I love your paper and read it every week. I’m a little confused by the crossword today, Oct 4th, as there appears to be no clue for 7 across, and also there IS a clue for 11 across, but no squares.... is this a new format and I’m missing something?! Loved your article on the Bath History Room (I live in Bath:) Thanks for sharing that!
This is the real reason why Susan Collin's will vote for judge Kavanaugh. If she votes "no" she is a bigger idiot than I thought. The Naval Shipyard in Bath, Maine provides over 5,000 jobs in her state. It was almost closed ten years ago. Another Base Closing and Realignment Round is coming. The work done in this yard can easily be done in Mississippi. A "no vote on Kavnaugh might mean the end of this shipyard. Think about it Congressman Collins? Not good to anger your party by tanking it's nominee for the Supreme Court.
BOOK SIGNING - SEPT. 14TH AUTHOR CORNELIA J. CESARI MAINE LIGHTHOUSE MUSEUM The Maine Lighthouse Museum located at One Park Drive in Rockland will host Maine author Cornelia J. Cesari at the museum on Friday, September 14th from 1 - 4 PM. She will be signing her book "Baker Island".Parking is free in the designated area at the Trade Winds Inn across the street while you are visiting the museum. Baker Island is a quintessential Maine island, frozen in time. It was settled in 1806 by one family, and the island's population peaked at about two dozen people in five households at mid-century. The US government made use of the island's strategic location at the entrance to Frenchman's Bay with a lighthouse and military facilities. Wealthy, artistic, and academic summer visitors to the region--so-called rusticators--discovered its charm as a day trip destination. However, by 1930, only the lightkeeper's family remained. Now mostly part of Acadia National Park, these 123 acres are precious to a disproportionate number of people. Every season, visitors flock to the area, scenic tour airplanes fly overhead, and narrated boat tours skirt the shoreline. Park rangers lead interpretive tours almost daily, leaving from Bar Harbor for half-day visits. Each summer, thousands moor their private boats and row ashore--honeymooning, celebrating, and even scattering ashes. Five generations of rusticators have held picnics on the tempestuous south shore's expansive pink granite surface known as the "Dance Floor."
