Bull Moose Scarborough Adds Books Creating the Largest Store of its Kind in New England

The Scarborough Bull Moose Warehouse Store expansion to more than 13,000 sq. ft. will be complete on November 13, making this single store the biggest retailer of books, DVDs, video games, and CDs in New England.
The expanded Bull Moose will have room for over 20,000 books of all genres as well an even larger selection of music, movies, and video games.  People who expect Bull Moose to be a price leader will not be surprised to learn that all books will be 35% off list price. 
“Because we’re a cost cutting locally-owned business, we think we can operate more efficiently than big box retailers – this allows us to extend our low prices to books too,” says owner Brett Wickard. “And we’re going to carry a wide variety of books that appeal to everybody… we’ll have the best selling new releases, a kids corner with children’s books, books for young readers, older readers and everyone in between,” added Wickard.

Life is good Thanksgiving Event

We need your help decorating our store for the Holidays! 

Join us at Life is good on November 20th to celebrate Thanksgiving by creating a "Thank you Chain." You will be able to write down or draw what you are thankful for, or a good deed that you have done, on a strip of paper.  We will assemble them into a festive chain that will hang in our store.  How long can we make it!

We will also be holding a food drive to benefit the Good Shepard Food Bank.  Non-perishable food items will be collected on that day and will be brought to the Portland warehouse.

Kid friendly with coloring, popcorn, stickers, and balloons.

Don't forget, we accept donations to our Life is good Kids Foundation at the store.  Lets see how much we can raise this holiday season.  Hope to see you there.

Southern Maine Community College Hosts U.S. Department of Education Senior Advisor

Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) will welcome Greg Darnieder, Senior Advisor to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, for a two-day visit to the College as part of a listening tour on college access in northern New England.

Darnieder will be visiting SMCC to learn about the College’s efforts and successes in increasing access to higher education, especially in rural areas, which have contributed to SMCC’s status as the fastest-growing community college in New England. Other topics during the two-day visit will include college readiness, particularly in mathematics, and dual enrollment in both high school and college.

“This visit from the U.S. Department of Education is an extremely valuable opportunity for us to share our many successes in increasing college access, not only SMCC but across Maine, but most importantly to work with Senior Advisor Darnieder in seeking solutions to the barriers that remain,” said Dr. Jim Ortiz, SMCC President.

Family holds fundraiser for reward in case of missing mom

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It's been 5 months since Megan Waterman, a 22-year old mom from Scarborough, disappeared.

Now her family is planning a fundraiser to collect money for a reward leading to information about where she is. Waterman was last seen on Long Island, New York with her boyfriend, Akeem Cruz.

Cruz has since been indicted on drug charges not related to this case. He's considered a witness in Waterman's disappearance. And Waterman's family is convinced that either he or someone else knows something they haven't told police. They say they think police are doing a great job with the investigation, and they're hopeful that a reward might just prod someone into saying something.

Childsplay in concert

The fiddle extravaganza known as Childsplay will be appearing in Portland on Saturday evening, December 4th at 8 PM at the Portland High School Auditorium. Childsplay features some of the best fiddlers in the nation, from Boston Symphony violinists to all-Ireland fiddle champions to national fiddling champions. Formed in 1986, the special sound of Childsplay lies not only in the skill of the musicians but in the warm familial timbre of the instruments they play – a quality similar to the vocal blending of singers from the same family. Known to its audience as a celebration of spirited, innovative, and exuberant music, this special evening will allow the audience a rare glimpse into the intricate weavings of the beautiful singing of Mollie O'Brien (if you listen to Prairie Home Companion you have heard Mollie sing many times!)  with the voices of the violins made by the same violinmaker.
