Gardening Experts to Host Book Discussion at Maine State Library
Reeser Manley and Marjorie Peronto authored "The New England Gardner's Year" Augusta - Want to grow fresh, flavorful, and pesticide-free vegetables and an ornamental garden that attracts birds, bumble bees, and butterflies? Come to the Maine State Library to learn more about gardening in tune with nature. On Friday, May 16 at 6:00 PM, the Friends of the Maine State Library are hosting a discussion on gardening with Maine authors and gardening experts Reeser Manley and Marjorie Peronto. Admission is free and open to the public. Friends of the Maine State Library in attendance that evening will receive a special gift for their gardens. Light refreshments will be served.The authors share the point of view that gardens should be an extension of the natural world - and gardeners serve as caretakers of that world. The two recently published "The New England Gardener's Year," a practical reference manual and a book you will find yourself reading cover to cover for discovery, inspiration, and pure enjoyment. The book provides month-by-month guidance from March through October with suggested dates for planting and tending adjusted for each zone. It offers practical advice on such topics as soil testing, composting, pruning, landscape design, and how to provide a season-long source of pollen and nectar for beneficial insects. Reeser Manley holds a Ph.D. in Horticultural Science and has gardened for many years in Massachusetts and Maine. His weekly gardening column appears in the Bangor Daily News and on-line. Marjorie Peronto, a Professor for the University of Maine, has taught courses in ornamental gardening, ecological landscaping, and home food production for 20 years.The authors will remain after the presentation to sign books. Copies of their book will be available for purchase at the event.For more information, please contact the Maine State Library at 207-287-5600.

Technology Initiative Providing Low-cost Computers for Maine Libraries
Program offers additional environmental, economic and community benefitsWestbrook - Maine public libraries now have access to high quality, low cost computers, software and support, thanks to a recent partnership between the Maine State Library and the Belfast-based nonprofit, PCs for Maine. Standing in front of a cluster of public computers at Walker Memorial Library in Westbrook Friday, State Librarian, Linda Lord said that in the first six months of the program, libraries from Allagash to North Berwick acquired 150 new computers at a savings of over $80,000 from what they would have otherwise paid for new equipment, phone support and extended warranties to match what was provided through the PCs for Maine library initiative. "Libraries are a critical access point for people in their communities who need to use a computer or connect to the internet," said Lord. "Until recently, however, the purchase of a machine was costly in terms of both the initial price and ongoing maintenance and technical support. This partnership makes it much more affordable for libraries to make investments in technology."Chris Martin, ITE/PCs for Maine founder, noted that the partnership was consistent with their mission to increase technology access and literacy. "There are many who cannot afford a computer - let alone high speed internet access - that need access to a computer for school work, to file a form or register their car. Libraries are perfectly positioned to provide this service in the community, and PCs for MAINE was designed to reduce the cost of computer ownership, provide user and technical support, and offer a better overall user experience.The computers are hand-built at PCs for Maine headquarters in Belfast, Maine using a combination of donated high-end business class computers that are completed with new parts and charitable software licensing. They are complete, tested and ready to use when public libraries receive them and are designed to provide a minimum of 2 years of dependable, hassle-free use. The refurbished computers from this program are very reliable, fast computers for the lowest possible cost so libraries can focus their time and resources on their community's library users - and save time and energy on technology troubleshooting."Computer and Wi-Fi access are in high demand here at Walker Memorial and these new machines have certainly filled a need in our community," said Karen Valley, Library Director at Walker Memorial Library in Westbrook. "In addition to the traditional uses of research and access to news, patrons are using computers for social networking, job searches and online learning. Our high speed internet connection is helpful to entrepreneurs and students who may need to send large data or media files and do not have access to good bandwidth at home or the office to make the file transfer work."The units cost $200 each and come with software, a two year warranty, and two years of support. Going the traditional route of buying a new PC and paying for software and this level of support would cost a library approximately $736 over the same time period.Chris Martin also commented: "This project is so potent that I will be presenting the pilots' outcomes to our board and will recommend they take this pilot to permanent ‘program‘ status," said Martin. "This will unlock PCs for Maine resources to further develop the support tools, system specifications and other quality measures at no cost to libraries, and to fix the $200 per unit cost for all of 2014! Kudos to all those involved who stepped out of familiarity and took a chance in hope of something better - I feel comfortable saying that it has already been a tremendous success for all!"Aside from the obvious benefits to libraries, the project also has an impact on jobs and the environment. The technology donation program, eWaste Alternatives, (created by Chris Martin and PCs for Maine for another Maine Nonprofit named SKILLS Inc in Waterville) created 114 hours of paid employment for people with disabilities by recovering the equipment needed to build these 150 systems. PCs for MAINE then took these recovered system parts, and built ‘systems' from them, added charitable software and performed all the quality testing to prepare them for library patron use - this sustained 112.5 hours of paid employment for their staff. In repurposing the 150 computers in the program, versus buying new, the effort prevented the consumption of 10,950 gallons of fossil fuels and the use of 14,580 pounds of materials. Normally computers end up in scrap recycling-- but this project succeeded because IDEXX, SAPPI, Bangor Savings, Bates and Bowdoin College, Maine General Medical Centers and a host of other Northeast US businesses choose to give computers to eWaste Alternatives and PCs for Maine. They know that their materials will benefit the community - in this case through Maine public libraries who chose to purchase refurbished computers. Janet McKenney, Director of Library Development, Maine State Library stated, "A great deal of credit goes to MSL staff who worked with PCs for Maine implementing and promoting this project and to the public libraries willing to see if these high quality refurbished computers would do the job. This is a great partnership for us and Maine public libraries!"

DHHS to Begin Putting Photos on Maine EBT Cards
*Within a Year, Most Electronic Benefit Cards Will Include Photos*AUGUSTA - Beginning later this month, the State of Maine will begin putting photos on Maine's Electronic Benefits Transaction (EBT) cards.Maine is implementing a new look for EBT cards, which will include a photograph of the individual who has been issued the card. The process of adding photos will begin on April 28 in the DHHS Bangor Office. Those who already receive benefits can voluntarily go to the Office beginning April 28 and have their photos taken. All new card holders in Bangor will have their photo taken when their benefits are approved and will be issued a photo ID card immediately."Placing photos on the Maine EBT card supports this Administration's efforts to strengthen the integrity of our public assistance programs," said Maine Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Mary Mayhew. "The photo will also help our staff to verify the identity of the benefit recipient and will be helpful in cases where cards have been illegally sold or when multiple cards are in the possession of an individual."The new cards, which feature a white background and a blue banner, will replace the former Pine Tree Card, which featured scenic photographs of Maine. The card will also include language that clearly indicates that misuse of the benefit card is considered a crime.The addition of a photograph has proven to be useful to the benefit recipient in other states, as it creates a more formal proof of identification for those who do not have a State ID or have not been issued a driver's license.Certain groups, including the disabled or blind and those 60 and over will not be required to have a photo on the card. Their cards will say "Valid without Photo." The former Pine Tree card will remain active for until new cards are delivered. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, commonly known as Food Stamps, allows card holders to give a family member permission to purchase food on his or her behalf. As is the case with the current card, the Personal Identification Number, or PIN, is required in order for the purchase to be approved. Retailers are bound by their agreement with the United States Department of Agriculture, which funds the SNAP."Putting photos on EBT cards helps to ensure that benefits are being used by those for whom they were intended," said Mayhew. "It is the right thing to do. Maine is one of the first states to do this, but it won't be the last."Maine joins New York and Massachusetts as states that have photos on EBT cards. Those who now receive benefits in the Bangor area will be contacted by the Office for Family Independence in the next week or so and informed how to get a new photo ID card. Beginning in July, all DHHS regional offices will begin taking photos. At that time, cards will be produced in a central location and will be mailed to the recipient.

Maine Unemployment Rate 5.9 Percent in March
State Labor Commissioner Jeanne Paquette released March workforce estimates for Maine.Workforce conditions continue to improve. Payroll job growth of 8,000 over the year drove the unemployment rate to the lowest since September 2008 and the employment to population ratio to highest since November 2008. Job growth was spread across a number of sectors.Seasonally Adjusted Statewide DataHousehold Survey Estimates - The preliminary seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 5.9 percent in March, down from 6.1 percent in February and 6.8 percent one year ago. The number of unemployed declined 6,700 over the year to 41,800.The share of the population that is employed reached 61.8 percent, well above the U.S. average of 58.9 percent. March was the 78th consecutive month the employment to population ratio was above the national average.The U.S. unemployment rate estimate was 6.7 percent, unchanged from February and down from 7.6 percent one year ago. The New England estimate was 6.3 percent. Rates for other states were 4.5 percent in New Hampshire, 3.4 percent in Vermont, 6.3 percent in Massachusetts, 8.7 percent in Rhode Island, and 7.0 percent in Connecticut.Labor force and unemployment data is available at http://www.maine.gov/labor/cwri/laus1.html .Payroll Survey Estimates - The preliminary nonfarm payroll jobs estimate for March of 607,100 is up 8,000 from one year ago. Private sector jobs were up 9,100, primarily in the professional and business services, retail trade, leisure and hospitality, education and healthcare, and financial activities sectors. Those gains were partially offset by a decline of 1,100 jobs in government.Nonfarm payroll jobs data is available at http://www.maine.gov/labor/cwri/ces1.html .Not Seasonally Adjusted Substate DataThe not seasonally adjusted statewide unemployment rate was 6.6 percent in March, down from 7.5 percent one year ago. Not seasonally adjusted rates ranged from 5.0 percent in Cumberland County to 11.1 percent in Washington County. Rates tended to be lower than the statewide average in southern and central counties and higher than average in northern and rim counties.The unemployment rate was below the statewide average in all three metropolitan areas: Portland-South Portland-Biddeford (5.2 percent), Bangor (6.1 percent) and Lewiston-Auburn (6.0 percent).This release is available at www.maine.gov/labor/cwri/news/release.html . Detailed labor force and unemployment data for the state, counties, and 31 labor market areas; nonfarm jobs data for the state and the three metropolitan areas and much more is available at www.maine.gov/labor/cwri/data.html .April estimates will be released Friday, May 16 (Data Release Schedule available at http://www.maine.gov/labor/cwri/releaseDates.html ).NOTES:1. Preliminary unemployment estimates for Maine tend to move in a direction for several months and then reverse course. Those directional trends are largely driven by a smoothing procedure and may not indicate a change in underlying workforce conditions. Annual revisions (to be published in March 2015) will eliminate those directional patterns. A comparison of preliminary and annually revised unemployment rates is available at http://cwri.blogspot.com/2014/03/workforce-data-revisions-part-1.html .2. Nonfarm payroll jobs estimates tend to be volatile from month to month. Estimates for the period from October 2013 to September 2014 will be replaced with actual payroll data in March 2015. The job count is likely to show less volatility than preliminary estimates.-end-
