Augusta- Governor Paul LePage unveiled a bill today, aimed at creating a tiered welfare system so that recipients are encouraged to strive for high employment goals without losing their benefits. He says the current system discourages welfare recipients from moving up in the workplace. His new bill would create a tier system that ensures a person their benefits while climbing up the employment ladder until they're financially stable on their own.

Color Bangor on Sunday

BANGOR - There's still time to sign up for an event that gets the whole family outside this weekend.

BANGOR - Summer is right around the corner, which means vacations, relaxing, and spending time at the lake for many us. But there's one group who won't stop working, and needs your help during their hardest time of year.

BANGOR - A 25-year-old Bangor man was sentenced to 22 years in prison with all but 11 years suspended for a stabbing that occurred in Bangor last June.

Anthony Bowie was sentenced Tuesday at the Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor.

Last month, District Court Judge Gregory Campbell rejected a plea agreement reached between the Penobscot District Attorney's Office and Bowie's attorney.

At that time Campbell called the proposed sentence of nine years in prison too lenient and sent the attorneys back to the bargaining table.

Bowie stabbed the victim in the abdomen and the head during the June fight.

The victim lost sight in one eye as a result.
