Laudholm Trust names new president

WELLS, Maine - Nik Charov has been hired as the new president of Laudholm Trust, the fund raising arm of the Wells Reserve at Laudholm, according to Bruce Read, chairman of the Trust board. A search committee composed of Laudholm Trust board members and the retiring president, Diana Joyner, chose Charov after reviewing a strong field of candidates from around the country. Charov will be working with Joyner as he assumes full responsibility as president.

"We are delighted to have a seasoned professional like Nik join our team," said Read. "Nik's extensive and proven experience in fund raising and event planning, as well as his passion for the environment, will serve our communities well as the Wells Reserve at Laudholm continues to prosper and grow."

Charov has been working in science education and environmental preservation for nearly a decade.

The Age of Miracles

The Age of Miracles

I like post-apocalyptic fiction.  At least in theory.

Karen Thompson Walker's debut novel is The Age of Miracles, in which the Earth’s rotation slows down... a lot. Little do we realize that all life is dependent on that consistent 24-hour day. At 26 hours it’s disruptive but not awful; at 46 hours, it’s quite a lot worse. When the day is 60 hours long… and longer… it is toxic to all life on Earth. The unrelenting daylight is toxic, and so is the darkness.
