Luckily in Bill's case it was discovered very early in its stage is confined to one spot (the size of a nickel) on his pancreas this gives him better than a 40% chance of a complete cure of the cancer. Bill and Bradi (Snow) live on a very small three digit monthly income. With winter upon us and 6weeks of 5 days a week of nearly 100 mile round trips to his radiation treatments help is needed to get him back and forth. Chemo treatments leave him very sensitive to the cold so it's important to keep him warm thus help with oil is important as well. They have 5 kids between them and the 3 youngest are living with them.

Husson University Theatre Group to Perform Proof in the Gracie’s Black Box Theatre
(Fri. 5 Dec, 2014 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm)

The Husson University Theatre (HUT) group will perform Proof by David Auburn on December 5, 6 and 7 in the Gracie Black Box Theatre on the educational institution’s Bangor campus. This student-run theater group production is directed by junior Patrick Dube, with set design by Alan Wardwell and lighting design by Joey Morrisette.   Proof is the story of Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician. When her father dies, Catherine tries to come to grips with her possible inherited insanity.   Further complicating matters are Hal, one of Robert's ex-students searching through the deceased mathematician's papers, and Claire, Catherine's estranged sister who shows up to help settle the family affairs. Amidst the chaos, Hal stumbles upon a notebook that holds, what is thought to be, scribbling from mathematician’s final days. Upon closer examination, the notebook may hold the answer to one of the world’s oldest mathematical theorems: a proof.   Proof, written by David Auburn, premiered at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City on May 23, 2000 and was directed by Daniel Sullivan. The production appeared on Broadway in October 2000 and ran until January 2003.   The play earned Auburn a Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2001. Four years later, Proof was adapted into a feature film directed by John Madden. The film, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, Jake Gyllenhaal and Hope Davis, earned Paltrow a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in 2006.    Recent Husson University Theatre productions include Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and James Goldman's The Lion in Winter. Additional past performances include Kill Me Deadly by Bill Roben and Easter Parade by Maine playwright Laura Emack.   Performances take place Friday and Saturday, December 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, December 7 at 2:00 p.m. on the second floor of the Beardsley Meeting House in the Gracie’s Black Box Theatre. Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for general admission. Seating is limited.   To reserve tickets, call the Husson University Theatre group at 207-619-2488. Parental discretion is advised. For more information, contact Gina Cella at [email protected]   Completed in October of 2009, The Gracie Theatre is Husson University's center for the fine and performing arts.

He has arranged and recorded music for PBS, National Geographic, and several independent filmmakers. Bob’s recently released CD of solo acoustic guitar, Edge of the Earth, consists of17 tracks showcasing Bob's own compositions as well as several traditional Irish and English tunes. The influence of baroque, jazz, and Celtic music, sometimes all at once, is evident in much of his original work. All Sundays at the Jesup Winter Concert Series events are generously sponsored by Machias Savings Bank. Following Bob’s performance will be the drawing of the library’s annual Christmas Raffle. Tickets are $1 (six for $5) and are on sale now at the library. Come take a chance on bundles of books in your favorite genre. A bundle of books also makes a great gift.

Ellacapella to perform at Jesup March 30
(Sun. 21 Dec, 2014 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

BAR HARBOR — Ellacapella, an all-female a capella group, will bring their intricate harmonies to the Jesup Memorial Library on Sunday, March 30, for a concert that begins at 2 p.m.       What started one afternoon with few friends singing simple harmonies together at a picnic more than a decade ago has blossomed into a dynamic group of nearly a dozen women who work many hours every week to bring the gift of song to their community.      The group’s members are from all over the Blue Hill Peninsula and beyond, including the towns of Brooksville, Blue Hill, East Blue Hill and Surry, Ellsworth and Bangor. They hail from many different walks of life and many different professions: doctors, teachers, business owners, artists, government workers and retirees. With an age gap of nearly 50 years from the most junior to the most senior member, there is never a dull moment when you're with the Ellas! Each woman brings a unique personality and talent to the group. It's always exciting and never boring.         Their concert at the Jesup is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to support the library. Refreshments will be served after the concert.
