'ALMOST, MAINE' HITS ACADEMIES STAGE THIS WKD
Culver Academies' student play, "Almost, Maine," will hit the stage of Eppley Auditorium this Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
"This is a comedy we found this past summer that is all about love in the wilderness of Northern Maine," explains director Richard Coven.
"Itâ€™s a very charming piece and has some wonderful poignant moments. Itâ€™s done in a series of vignettes, that all happen at 9 p.m. â€“ at the time when the northern lights appear in the sky."

LAKEVILLE â€” Triton hit the floor Friday night looking as though the Northern State Conference championship was a foregone conclusion.
After all, the defending co-conference champs had just beaten LaVille with less than their best stuff in the Bi-County Tournament two weeks ago. The trouble was, the revenge-minded Lancers had different ideas.
PLYMOUTH â€” Anarchy and chaos are not always a bad thing.
A second half commitment by Plymouth to its â€śchaos defenseâ€ť â€” every passing lane, every shot, every dribble challenged for the fullcourt â€” produced a tidal wave that Goshen could not recover from in a 59-34 Northern Lakes Conference win for the Pilgrims.
â€śI give our assistant coaches a lot of credit,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Bales. â€śThey made the recommendation that we press and get after it a little more, and our kids executed that game plan.â€ť
CULVER â€” Defense and a drive propelled John Glenn to a boys-girls Northern State Conference basketball doubleheader sweep at Culver Community Friday.

In the opener, Kyler Columbia drove the length of the floor for a buzzer-beating layup to hand Glenn an improbable 50-49 overtime win.
JOHN GLENN 44, CULVER 37
Once the calendar turned to 2013 something clicked with Glennâ€™s defense.
