State energy director quitting
Press Herald - Patrick Woodcock is stepping down as Gov. Paul LePage's energy director, citing a “broken” process in which lobbyists have too much influence in crafting energy policy as a contributing factor in his decision. In an interview with the Portland Press Herald, Woodcock said he enjoys the job he has held since 2013, but he expressed frustration with the power of lobbyists to define and advance energy policy in a citizen Legislature, where the turnover makes it hard for lawmakers to get up to speed on complex details.

It costs a lot for the Bath built USS Zumwalt to shoot
WCSH - The new guns on the Navy’s biggest and most advanced destroyer are going to be firing blanks if the Navy can’t find cost-effective projectiles. The GPS-guided, rocket-powered projectiles developed for the new 155mm Advanced Gun System currently cost about $800,000 apiece, nearly as much as a cruise missile, making them too expensive for the Navy to buy in large quantities for the stealthy USS Zumwalt, according to officials.
