1. The Maine House narrowly passed a bill on Monday that would establish a ‘death with dignity’ policy in the state. The vote crossed party lines, both Democrats and Republicans voting either for or against the bill. If passed in full, this bill would allow terminally ill individuals who are at least 18 years old to request medication from a physician to end their life. ‘Terminal disease’ is defined, in this case, as an incurable and irreversible disease that would result in death within six months. This bill faces further votes in the House and Senate. (News Center Maine)

2. #LetTimWalk The Lake Region community is rallying around home-schooled teenager, Tim Moore, who’s played sports, marched in the band and gone to dances at the high school, but isn’t allowed to walk at graduation. Superintendent Al Smith called Moore “a great kid,” but said it all comes down to academics. He pointed to the district’s policy that was adopted in 2007. It says, “Only those students who will be receiving a Lake Region High School diploma or a Certificate of Achievement may participate in the school’s graduation ceremony.” (WGME)
