Shenna Bellows takes the road less traveled in Senate race

During a recent stop in Bangor we were able to catch up with Bellows to find out how she is coping with bilsters, what she hopes to do in Washington, and how she likes to fill her stein when she’s not on the campaign trail.

Summer Session with VEEP’s Timothy Simons

Last fall we had a chance to catch up with our close personal friend and perhaps the greatest recent acting byproduct of the University of Maine; of course we are talking about none-other-than the dashing Mr. Timothy Simons.

FTS Q & A: Governor Paul Lepage

The spectrum of feelings on Paul LePage is as broad as it has been for any of our governors in recent memory. While opinions vary wildly depending on whether you lean to the left or to the right, the one thing that cannot be argued is that Governor LePage makes you think. While his candid comments to the media may seem like lapses in judgement to some, the topics that LePage has been willing to address are well outside the conservative platforms of past candidates for the Blaine House. His upbringing in one of the poorest areas in Lewiston to the highest political office in our state is nothing to ignore. That is why I was excited to sit down and speak with Governor LePage about his career, his time attending UMaine, and of course how he likes to fill the steins when he is not on the clock in Augusta.

FTS Q&A: Coach Richard Barron

University of Maine women’s basketball coach Richard Barron is quickly becoming a transformational figure within Black Bear Nation.  Since inheriting the struggling program from Cindy Blodgett in 2011, Coach Barron has slowly and steadily been building a foundation within the locker room that is focused on teamwork, values, and success.  That foundation is now being […]

FTS Q&A: Carla Companion (The Beer Babe)

Some would say that the craft beer brewing industry on the East Coast found it’s birth in Portland with the likes of Geary’s and Shipyard setting up shop in the Old Port over 30 years ago. With well over 50 microbreweries across the state and what seems like a new brewery opening every day, the […]

FTS Q&A: Eliot Cutler

To say the race for Governor in Maine is hotly contested is just a bit of an understatement. As it was in 2010, this year’s race features three big name candidates representing three major political groups.  As part of our new Maine Politics series, we at Fill The Steins are reaching out to all of […]

Erin’s Run FTS Q&A: Ben Sprague

Erin’s Run is a cause that is near and dear to the hearts of Fill The Steins’ founders, and one of the events over the year that we’re proud to promote through our FILLanthropy initiative. Erin grew up in the same town as many of the FTS crew, and our families were very much part […]
