Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta

Nearly 30 people joined together Wednesday morning, for a ceremony and revealing of a gravestone marker for the previously unmarked grave of Alfred James Brady.  In 1937 Brady was killed by FBI agents during a shootout on Central Street in Bangor.  Brady, considered Public Enemy #1 at the time, was shot and killed, along with Clarence Lee Shaffer as they were returning to Dakin's Sporting Goods to purchase a submachine gun.  For nearly 70 years the burial place has remained unmarked and quietly hidden along the edge of Mount Hope Cemetery.

Maine Trotting Horse History

The history of the Maine trotting horse from 1819 to 1890, their breeders, history of the tracks – and the role of the University of Maine in that industry – is the subject of the first brown bag lunch lecture series being held Sept. 11 at the UMaine Page Farm and Home Museum.

The noon presentation is free and open to the public. Speaker Clark Price Thompson has titled his talk "Maine trotting horse history and its UMaine connections."
