Customers line up for new Goodwill store


BRUNSWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Some potential Black Friday shoppers got a head start on the crowds and the crunch on Wednesday, as close to a hundred people lined up for the grand opening of a new Goodwill store in Brunswick.

The store, located in the busy Cook's Corner retail area, was packed inside with customers hunting for bargains. As with all Goodwill stores, most of what's sold is donated by individuals or other businesses. The profits from the sales pay for a range of social programs run by Goodwill. The company's President of Retail, Randy Finamore, calls it their "triple bottom line".

"It's about people, about the planet and then to round it our we generate the working capital that supports our programs," said Finamore.

He called the retail stores the engine that drives their social programs.

Man allegedly leads police on chase around Bath


BATH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Police arrested a man after he led an officer on a high speed chase Wednesday.

Around 8 p.m. an officer saw a vehicle allegedly driving through the Brackett's Market parking lot at a high speed and in an "erratic" manner, with its tires spinning as it turned onto Commercial Street. The officer pursued the vehicle to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle allegedly accelerated, and then turned onto Lambard Street.

The officer recognized the vehicle and knew the Gray 2005 Cadillac STS belong to Rayon Wilson. About 45 minutes earlier, police said they had dealt with Wilson after he got kicked out of a local bar. Police said they had warned him not to drive because it appeared he was intoxicated at that time.

Can't Sleep? Avoid These Foods
