WINTER HARBOR — It started with a challenge.
ELLSWORTH — The following individuals were arrested and/or summonsed in Hancock County in recent days:
BAR HARBOR — A Bucksport man was jailed Monday after allegedly running his car into a police cruiser and fleeing from a traffic stop.
MOUNT DESERT — Police Chief Jim Willis will continue to serve as acting chief in Bar Harbor through the end of the year while remaining in charge of the police department here.
BAR HARBOR — At the group's annual meeting last week, Friends of Acadia (FOA) board chairman Ed Samek noted the group’s flexibility and its committed donors, both of which allowed Acadia National Park to weather not only the effect of the budget sequestration and shutdown, but also a $339,000 cut in its operations budget. With FOA’s help, the park moved forward with projects to protect natural resources, youth engagement, controlling invasive species and maintaining the historic carriage roads and trails. “We have an opportunity to be benefactors and provide for generations to come,” said Samek.
BLUE HILL — Charges are pending against a 17-year-old driver who allegedly failed to stop for a deputy and later crashed his car in Blue Hill.

BROOKSVILLE — When Helen and Scott Nearing first published “Living the Good Life” in 1964, the couple had already spent 30 years living off the grid in southern Vermont, after aborting earlier careers in New York City. Helen had played concert violin and studied Eastern philosophy. Scott was an educator and economist.
