On Bangor PD’s ‘Sharpie Post’ about Panhandlers and LaMarche’s protest

sharpie-panhandlers-bangor-police

The Bangor Police Department Facebook Page — which has become wildly popular in the past year thanks in large part to the ‘duck of justice’ — is now taking heat for a recent post. Their public service announcement outlined how officers have witnessed panhandlers using sharpies to write messages on cardboard signs to ultimately scam Bangor residents.

Here is the post in question originally published to Facebook on June 4th…

Jenner’s identity crisis only slightly more extreme than our own

I opened up my Twitter feed early this afternoon, and in a somewhat ironic juxtaposition I was greeted with this (see image below) — two tweets from separate news agencies posting two separate pictures from a Vanity Fair photo shoot that resulted in a disjointed portrayal of a man who has made himself into a woman. A confusing picture of a confused human in an even more confusing world.

Rather appropriately, the default twitter prompt was asking me “What’s happening?”… You tell me, Twitter, because it’s times like these that I’m at a temporary loss for words.

This story passed through my social media feed the other day and I couldn’t resist giving it a virtual ‘shout out’.

Discount Mattress and Furniture in the Airport Mall in Bangor currently has their windows decorated with a nativity, and the words ‘Jesus is the Reason for the Season.’ Nothing wrong with that, right? Jesus is the reason for this season after all.

All too often sharing our faith as Christians — if we even do it all — becomes a script that we recite. We do our best to remember to list all the features of what Jesus did on The Cross, before attempting to close the deal of eternal life for just one easy payment of ‘accept Jesus into your heart’.

6,000 lives impacted by 2014 ‘Day of Hope’ in Bangor

The local organizers of Bangor’s first ever ‘Day of Hope’ were pleasantly surprised at the turnout this past Saturday on the Bangor Waterfront. It’s safe to say most volunteers were not expecting so many ‘guests of honor’ to be lined up outside the event’s entrance by 9 AM. But the rain held off, and by day’s end everyone involved was simply thankful to have played a small part in the event’s success.
