Sublet for medical Student 9/24-10/22/2011: Visiting 4th year Medical Student from Waldorf Community in New York seeks housing for Vascular Surgery Clerkship at Maine Medical Center in Portland. Requires furnished room with WIFI or plug-in high speed cable. Ideally housing would be within 10 minutes walk of Maine Medical Center with own bathroom. Pluses would be off street parking and access to a kitchen and laundry machine, though no medical laundry would come to the house. I am Male, in my 30's and married. I love cats, dogs and gardens and am a respectful lodger. My wife is a eurythmist and we live up the road from Green Meadow Waldorf School. There will be times when I will keep unsocial hours as a Surgical Team Member and need a quiet environment and ease of coming and going at odd hours. Sadly the Medical School does not have any accommodation available for me during my visit so I am reaching out to you as the local Waldorf Community. I would like to pay $800 for the 4 weeks, but would consider more for the right situation. Thank you for reading. Please call my wife, Rachel with any questions or possiblities. Regards, Shad Haque (845) 300 6542

The Penobscot River Restoration Trust is offering a free conservation photojournalism workshop with environmental photographer Bridget Besaw this fall that will focus on restoration of the Penobscot River as a central theme. The two-day workshop will be held September 17th and October 1st, allowing a two week period in-between for participants to go on a “photo shoot” focused on the river and the anticipated community benefits of the Penobscot River Restoration Project. Select photos resulting from the workshop will be exhibited in at least one public venue in the project area and may be used on the Trust website and in print materials used to raise awareness about the Penobscot Project. An additional public evening presentation is being planned earlier in September. Workshop flyer.
