In Maine we are highly aware that what we do with our little corner of the planet has a direct impact on the greater world around us. Today we explore the topic of healthy lawns, and their relationship with local waters and the ecosystem at large. Our guests include Amy Witt & Frank Wertheim of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, and Mary Cerullo & Ivy Frignoca of Friends of Casco Bay
How do we protect our communities—from issues related to addiction? Prescription and non-prescription drugs have a complicated history in our society. Health care providers and community members alike are seeking ways to deal with addiction—both through primary prevention and through treatment. Today we speak with Central Maine Medical Center chief family medicine physician Dr. Dave Salko and Jim Godbout , co-chair of the Red Ribbon Committee of the Biddeford Saco Rotary, about their efforts in this area.
How can we promote understanding between cultural groups in Maine? Whether our family has been here for generations, or whether we have just arrived, it is incumbent upon us to learn how to get along—and celebrate—people of all backgrounds. Today we speak with Pious Ali, founder of the Maine Interfaith Youth Alliance, and Gerard & Annie Kiladjian, founders of the Armenian Cultural Association of Maine.
