YOUTH SAY NO TO BIG TOBACCO

Organizations stand with local youth to speak against tobacco company’s exploitation of youth

Students from schools in the greater Biddeford-Saco area are partnering with Coastal Healthy Communities Coalition, Southern Maine Medical Center and Thornton Academy to speak out against the exploitation of youth by tobacco companies during National Kick Butts Day. Each year, tobacco manufacturers spend nearly $60 million directly targeting youth in Maine promoting tobacco products. Local students are fighting back against this practice by reaching out to their peers and educating them about the impacts of smoking and how tobacco companies are cashing in at their expense.

WHAT: Kick-Butts Day is a national observance where youth speak up
against tobacco and teen exploitation in an effort to lower youth tobacco use. Local events will kick-off at a rally and press event held at Thornton Academy.

SEMI PRO FOOTBALL RETURNS TO MAINE

PORTLAND - Saturday will be the first public workout session for Maine's newest semi-professional
football team, the Maine Sabers.

For those who follow Maine football, the Maine Sabers is a familiar moniker. From 1991 through 1993,
the Sabers were Maine's dominant semi-professional football team.

In January, the Maine Sabers were officially admitted into the Eastern Football League, the oldest semi-
professional league in the nation, along with 15 other teams. The team is based in Portland and will
play at nearby fields such as Portland's Fitzpatrick Stadium or Scarborough High School's stadium. The
team's 2011 schedule has yet to be finalized but the season will run from late June through September.

The team was organized by Stephen Goodrich, a former administrator with the original Sabers and
Jason McLeod, Windham High School football team's offensive coordinator.

Saco Coffeehouse Presents The Jennifer Comeau Band

Jennifer Comeau peels away our tough layers and shifts us to a better place with her captivating stage presence, wit and grace. Her engineer’s mind and poet’s heart intermingle in a smart, soulful set of songs that can best be described as buoyant folk and blues. Jen’s earliest years in Buffalo, New York, were irrevocably influenced by the poignant Irish folk music of the 60’s, laced with the saucy R&B music of the 70’s. Jennifer wrote all of the songs on her debut CD, "Feed the Tribe". As a collection, they capture the duality of life -- its beauty and its messiness; the cosmic and the comic; what both stirs and saddens us.
