Missing man located after being stranded

EDMUNDS TOWNSHIP — Game wardens have located a man who spent two nights in his car and another two nights in an abandoned cabin after his car got stuck on a washed out road.

Wardens managed to find Greg Burns of Machias within several hours of being told Friday night that he’d been last seen earlier in the week.

Wardens say the 51-year-old Burns told them that he spent two nights in his car, which was stuck in a washout at Cranberry Brook in Edmunds Township.

Then he spent the next two nights in an abandoned camp, where he found rusty cans of peas and baked beans.

Wardens say Burns was glad he didn’t have to eat dog food, which was all that was left. He was reunited with family Friday night.

Filmmaker chats with younger self

PORTLAND — A video created by a Maine filmmaker that shows him talking to a younger version of himself thanks to creative editing is making its way across the Internet.

Jeremiah McDonald of Portland put together VHS footage of himself when he was 12 years old and juxtaposed it with a video of himself as a 32-year-old actor and filmmaker, creating a conversation between the two that’s both snarky and nostalgic.

Posted on YouTube on Thursday, it had received more than 1.6 million views within 24 hours.

The video shows the modern McDonald sipping booze while talking to his squirmy younger self about his cartoon drawings as a child, a Star Wars action figure, their pets, the Internet and the British science fiction TV show “Doctor Who.”

Jurors rejected Ormsby’s insanity defense. 

The Bangor Daily News said the notice of appeal and application to appeal the sentence were filed late last month in Caribou.
