1. Masks will once again be required in Portland schools starting Thursday in response to an increase in COVID-19 infections.

2. Sen. Collins called police Saturday upon discovering a message written in chalk on the sidewalk outside her Bangor home. “Susie, please, Mainers want WHPA —–> vote yes, clean up your mess” the message said. The dot in the “i” of Mainers was replaced with a drawing of a uterus and fallopian tubes in red. Officers went to the home and filed a report, but the chalk message was deemed not to be a crime.

3. Rents are going up by $400 at Redbank Village in South Portland. Originally built as affordable housing for working families.

A class action lawsuit has been filed in California accusing JRK of illegal, excessive rent increases, late fees and fines.

4. Apple is discontinuing the iPod. The music storage device and player changed the game when it was unveiled in 2001. On Tuesday, Apple announced that the remaining supply of the 7th generation iPod Touch will be available “while supplies last.”
