Burst pipes damage Historic Museum

BRUNSWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A museum in Brunswick is assessing damage after the recent cold snap caused water pipes to burst.

The Joshua Chamberlain Museum is located in the house where the famous Civil War hero lived most of his life. When the executive director went to check on the museum last weekend she saw water pouring from the ceiling into the historic home.

The water damaged the parlor and the dining room. Ceilings in both rooms had to be taken down as well as some of the walls. Some furniture original to the home was also damaged.

Gift of golf for Maine troops in Afghanistan

BATH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A golf company is sending a care package to a group of soldiers in Afghanistan that is expected to be a hit.

Staff Sergeant Justin Poirier of the 133rd Engineer Battalion, based out of Gardiner, contacted Harris Golf in Bath asking how the troops could buy inexpensive golf balls. The soldiers had set up a makeshift golf course where they are stationed at Bagram Air Base. But because of the obvious dangers in the surrounding area, they could not retrieve the golf balls when they hit them too far.

Instead of just sending golf balls, Harris Golf is sending an entire golf course kit, complete with four new sets of clubs, hitting mats, target flags, and of course more than seven hundred golf balls. Staff Sergeant Poirier told NEWS CENTER by phone about the gratitude he feels toward the company.
