    Producer/Host: Amy Browne
    Audio recorded by John Greenman

    Segment 1: With parts of the University of Maine system facing cuts, it might seem that they are having some financial problems- but it turns out that they have quite a nest egg stashed away that they could be tapping into to avoid cutting programs, according to a new report by John Christie of the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting (www.pinetreewatchdog.org)

    Segment 2: Michael Figura, Legal Fellow with the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, was in Maine Friday, speaking at a forum on the “National Defense Authorization Act’s “indefinite detention” provision, the PATRIOT Act, and related threats to civil liberties“. Friday’s forum at the Peace & Justice Center in Bangor, was one in a series of forums held in Maine towns. Organizer Jon Olson also spoke at the event.
