Well for us this trend is not good. Up until last year we had the lowest crime rate in the country. Maine had the lowest crime rate of all 50 states and Waldo County had the lowest crime rate in the state...hence making us a pretty good place to live. Last year some county in New Hampshire edged us out, and this year doesn't look good for us either. (Though this fellow Lie Nielsen worker murder was outside my county)

I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
