BRIDPORT — Investigators are still sorting out the cause of a fire this past Friday in Bridport that caused significant damage to a Route 22A home owned by Mark and Heidi Prime.

It was at around 5:30 p.m. on March 18 that Bridport firefighters were toned out to the fire, according to Assistant Fire Chief Chris Gordon. The fire originated in the attic of the two-story home and burned very hot, due in part to cedar shingles on the roof that held the heat inside the structure, according to Gordon.

Lucretius: What it means to say 'Nothing comes to be from nothing'

Posted on March 24, 2016 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series of essays on Lucretius, an early philosopher who provides a link to “lost classics” through his epic poem “On the Nature of Things.”

The proposition, “Nothing comes to be from nothing,” is the fundamental principle of the system of nature that Lucretius presents in De Rerum Natura. The principle is of great antiquity, which is not surprising, because, on the face of it, it seems a matter of common sense, which may speak well of our species.

Crow communication is 'cawfully' complicated

Posted on March 24, 2016 |
By Joe Rankin



The Outside Story crows.jpg

“Caw! Caw!” Every spring we hear it. And my wife says, “that’s My Crow.” It’s apparently the bird’s name. She capitalizes it in her tone. I think she hasn’t bestowed a more formal name because she doesn’t know whether it’s a male or female.

My Crow is likely part of an extended family of crows that lives in our area. We think they nest in the tall pines on our south neighbor’s woodlot, but they forage over our woods and fields as well.
