Can't Sleep? Avoid These Foods

Can't Sleep? Avoid These Foods

It's coffee that will rob me of sleep. Even a cup at one in the afternoon can pack a wallop of caffeine. I learned my lesson the hard way.

I know I'm not the only one who has figured out that coffee can lead to a sleepless night. If you’ve been suffering from insomnia, maybe you should take a close look at what you eat before you go to bed. 

Judge approves East Millinocket mill auction


EAST MILLINOCKET, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A federal bankruptcy judge approved the auction procedures Friday for the East Millinocket mill.

"We fully expect that this is going to be a competitive auction given the interest that we have had," said attorney Randy Creswell.

Attorneys said there has been a lot of interest in the mill and have spoke with 12 potential bidders. Eight of them are liquidators, looking to sell the mill equipment and building. The other four have expressed interest in starting operations again. GNP Holdings said that though they would prefer to begin operations, the bottom line is they want to sell the mill and property.

Company makes opening bid for GNP mill equipment


EAST MILLINOCKET, Maine
(NEWS CENTER) -- A company has made bid to buy the Great Northern Paper mill equipment and building for $2.6 million dollars. But first a judge must approve the sale of the bankrupt Great Northern Paper, unless a higher and better offer comes along.

The company that has put in the bid, GNP Acquisition LLC, does not appear to have interest in restarting the mill. The Portland Press Herald reports that the company is not interested in purchasing the land, but would have the option to buy it for an additional $350,000, according to an attorney representing the trustee for Great Northern.

Spaghetti dinner raises money for former mill workers


MEDWAY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Medway Middle School hosted a spaghetti dinner Thursday to raise money for laid off East Millinocket mill workers.

"With winter coming on and the cost of fuel being what it is...it must be hard to decide how to spend the little but of money you have from welfare. I think these supper and things like that really help out," said event volunteer Robert Pelkey.

All donations from the dinner will go to help families in East Millinocket, Millinocket and Lincoln. Organizers hope to raise $7,000 to $10,000 to purchase heating materials like wood, oil and pellets to keep homes warm through the harsh Maine winter. So far they have raised $1,100.
