Thanks to all who came to the annual Resource Center Country Barbecue.

American Futures, a project of the publication The Atlantic, is describing "reinvention and resilience across the nation". Its authors, James and Deb Fallows visited Eastport this fall. Read their impressions of our community at the American Futures blogsite.

Our Drift Study project was profiled on the NOAA Satellite Information System website for the month of July 2013.
