In an article for the Bangor Daily News Hannah Lazaro describes the animals she breeds, known as sugar gliders, as "In the night time they're like crazy little monkeys.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife took to the air and now have their most accurate prediction of Maine's moose population so far. By counting over the course of two winters and verifying the number by flying over Eastern and Northern Maine in a helicopter, the department estimates there are 76,000 moose in the state. The technique was used previously to count deer in Quebec and New Brunswick, and was adopted by the sate for the first time for this survey.

Down East first reported on rise of elvers in the March article written by Susan Hand Shetterly "The Incredible Edible Eel."
