(As reported in the Bangor Daily News)

BREWER -- Chanju Byun returned home to South Korea much less worried about her daughter's college years in Maine. After spending a Sunday afternoon at the First Korean Methodist Church in Brewer, she found that her fears had been eased because her daughter would be able to connect with other Koreans, eat familiar foods and worship in a familiar language.

Byun was relieved because a group of approximately 40 Korean men, women and children worship at the First Methodist Church on South Main Street in Brewer.

Services in English and Korean are led by the Rev. Jeong Jae Kim, who has served the congregation for almost two years. Hymns are sung in Korean, bulletins are printed in Korean and fellowship includes potluck of Korean dishes.

BRADLEY -- When it comes to gardening, Elroy Morgan thinks big, really big.

In his home garden, where the cornstalks and sunflowers grow taller than tall, Morgan has grown tomatoes that weigh two pounds.

But those are dwarfed by his real focus in the garden, the crop that keeps him planning and worrying and ever searching for improvements.

Pumpkins. Atlantic Giant pumpkins, to be exact. Pumpkins that grow taller than a child, yet weigh more than several large men combined.

From humble beginnings that began with a 55-pound pumpkin that never reached its 1,000-pound potential, Morgan has buckled down, studied, tried and tested tending methods, retested and most of all learned.

The result is a pumpkin patch this fall dominated by a bright orange juggnaut pumpkin that is expected to tip the scales at 800 pounds.

In the three years that Pallotta has been writing, he has produced five alphabet books that have sold nearly 100,000 copies.

FRANKFORT -- The fishway at the Marsh Stream dam in FRankfort was dedicated in the memory of the late Leo W. Gilmore, a Frankfort resident and avid outdoorsman who had campaigned for its installation. State and local officials participated in the dedication ceremonies as did members for local Scout troops.

BANGOR -- Children from the Capehart neighborhood tested their agility as they ran through a trail of tires during the inaugural field day held as an end-of-summer event at the Downeast School. Sack and egg-in-spoon races, the dunk tank _ which waited ominously for Bangor Police Officer Gregory Sproul -- and hot dogs were the highlights of what Elsie Coffey, director of the Bangor Housing Authority said was expected to become an annual affair. …
