Cooler temps ...


... are with us finally after the early week’s blast of hot weather. We’ve got a great batch of stories for you in The Ten.

Our Maine Calling team has been taking a focused look at Maine’s economy this week, and what work looks like now as many of us start returning to the office. Be sure to check that out.

Some really deep stories also in the mix: from The World, the story of a man deported from the U.S. by I.C.E. after he had previously cooperated with investigators. Now, he’s launched a coffee brand, Deportado, from Colombia…it’s a fascinating read.

I was also impressed with NPR’s Picture Show and their take on American history through a Native American lens.

Plus, something for all the Jurassic Park fans out there: a new dinosaur species has been discovered in Australia.

That’s it for now!


See ya,


Mark Simpson, News Director
