PARKMAN - A man is dead another injured following a shooting on the Packard Road in Parkman Tuesday night.

(BANGOR) Seventeen Maine schools have appeared on the 2015 U.S. News and World Report's list of best high schools in the country. Five of the schools listed were not listed last year. 

(WASHINGTON) - The Coast Guard is scheduled to release its first boating safety App Saturday as the kickoff to this year's National Safe Boating Week.

The Boating Safety Mobile app was not designed to replace a boater's marine VHF radio, which the Coast Guard strongly recommends all boaters have aboard their vessels.

Officials say the App was mainly designed to provide additional boating safety resources for mobile device users.

Features will include:

    • State boating information
  • A safety equipment checklist
  • Free boating safety requests
  • Navigation rules
  • Float plans
  • An Emergency Assistance button

When location services are enabled, users can receive the latest weather reports from the closest National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather buoys, as well as, report the location of a hazard on the water.

The Emergency Assistance button will call the closest Coast Guard command center to assist what is needed. 

Personal information is stored on the phone but is not sent to the Coast Guard unless the user chooses to send it. The Coast Guard does not track a user's location, and the app does not track a user's location unless the app is being used. 

National Safe Boating Week takes place May 16th - 22nd, which is an annual event that encourages all boaters to practice safe boating.

Greendrinks Celebrates Five Years

BANGOR - Bangor Greendrinks celebrated it's fifth birthday with a party down on the Bangor Waterfront.  

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.
