I find perplexing the arrest of Charles Cushman (former Camden city attorney) for allegedly breaching his duties by "intentionally dismissing and/or Nolle Prossing criminal charges under the condition that a donation be made by the defense to the Camden City Drug Fund."

However, the report -- broadly speaking -- noted a decrease in market share in outpatient services and only slight increases for inpatient services.

Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.
I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
