Greens see red, must seek more green

Nice to meet you Rich Connor

A few scenes from Connor's first couple weeks at the  Portland Press Herald
Rich Connor, the mercurial new co-owner and editor/publisher of the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram , the Waterville-based Morning Sentinel , and the Augusta-based Kennebec Journal, is a curious figure, who himself seems a good candidate for interesting copy in the coming years.

Music Seen: Gypsy Tailwind at Port City Music Hall

It's a kind of magic
Sometimes "studio magic" doesn't translate well to the stage — especially when 15 musicians perform in a single song. But other times, you wish such large live performances were being recorded for the next album.

One man's death spread the numeric code for "Heil Hitler" across the world.

Death knell

B ittersweet week at the Portland Press Herald
Last week was a bittersweet week for the people who work at the Portland Press Herald and its sister publications.
