Topics: Several local peace activists were sentenced yesterday for taking part in Civil Disobedience last September at Senator Snowe’s Bangor office. After learning that community service would not be an option, several opted for jail time rather than paying a fine. We bring you a report from the courthouse. And later in the program: As the U.S. government spends billions on the war in Iraq, agencies that help survivors of domestic violence are relying on committed volunteers to help them provide needed services. We talk with a representative of Spruce Run about opportunities to become a volunteer with that agency, as well as where you can call for support if you are dealing with domestic violence yourself.
