Loon rescued from Saddleback Mountain

It wasn't a run of the mill rescue for the ski patrol at Saddleback Mountain this weekend - but - it was a rescue nonetheless.

Mountain officials got word that an ailing loon was in trouble on one of the mountain's trails on Saturday.

Ski patrol was able to capture the loon, place it into a plastic crate and transport it by snowmobile to the base lodge.

Wardens from the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife assessed the loon's condition and decided it was well enough to be released.

The crew took it to an area of open water on the Rangeley River and set if free.

Turns out it was the only rescue of the day for the ski patrol.

Bowdoin to pay tuition for son of slain police officer

 

Bowdoin College is stepping up to ensure the son of a slain New York City police officer can continue his education.

Justin Ramos is a freshman at the college and also is the son of 40-year-old Rafael Ramos.

Rafael Ramos is one of two New York City police officers who were killed inside their patrol car on Saturday.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, Bowdoin President Barry Mills said he had notified the Ramos family that the college would pick up the tab for the rest of Justin's tuition.

The two officers were killed by a man investigators say was bent on retalation for the slayings of black men by white police officers.
