When the Sky Is Like Lace by Elinor Lander Horwitz

I must thank Islandport Press for republishing When the Sky Is Like Lace by Elinor Lander Horwitz, most especially because Maine’s Barbara Cooney created the book’s wonderful illustrations.

Cooney, who passed away in 2000, won many awards for her children’s books and illustrations, and was declared a Living Treasure of the State of Maine in 1996.

The Old Mainer and the Sea by Jean Flahive

The illustrations in kid’s books these day are amazing. And the illustration on the cover of Jean Flahive’s book, The Old Mainer and the Sea, published by Islandport Press, grabbed my attention immediately. It shows an old guy in a small boat, hauling in a big fish.

 

Of course being an old Mainer myself, and a guy who loves the sea, I just knew I would love this book, and I did.

 

Deer baiting debated again at Maine legislature

Deer baiting is being debated again at the legislature. And that is a good thing.

 

Last year the legislature’s Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee supported legislation that called for loss of hunting privileges for one year when convicted of deer baiting, and loss of hunting privileges for two years for a second offense.

 

But Governor LePage refused to sign the bill into law until the legislature amended it to take away hunting privileges for life for the second offense. And they did that. That was ridiculous, in my opinion.
