Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Project Grants Awarded

Recently the Maine Commission for Community Service challenged communities across Maine to develop volunteer service projects that unite community sectors in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Our challenge was met with an overwhelming response of 26 grant applications. We are happy to announce, the Maine Commission for Community Service, awarded 16 organizations $500 grants to implement Martin Luther King Day of Service Projects.
We encourage local citizens to contact a project in their community and take part in the Martin Luther King Day of Service. This special day of service is an important way for Maine’s people to experience the significance of service, volunteerism and collaboration amongst their neighbors. These service projects will not only impact their communities, but celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his commitment to service, non-violence, and diversity.

Recycling Records Broken Every Month

ecomaine has broken its own recycling record every month for the past 12 months. From December 2009 through November 2010, its recycling facility has averaged 5,404,660 pounds per month and the organization expects that average to continue increasing well into 2011. Chairman of the Board of Directors Michael Bobinsky, who is Portland’s Director of Public Services, said, “Our educational outreach about the importance of recycling – both environmentally and fiscally – has been a major factor in convincing more people to make recycling a part of their daily routine.”

The fiscal impact, according to Bobinsky, from increased recycling for municipalities, universities, and businesses is significant because the cost of trash disposal is far greater than the cost of recycling.

Amongst the dusty records of the KDVS radio station at the University of California/Davis, Tom Shimura, who currently makes records as Lyrics Born, found too much to love. Sandwiched between gatefold LPs, 12-inch singles, dub versions and white-labels was a reservoir of inspiration that he would draw on for the following decades.
