(Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal) The Blue Mass lets out at the Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul in Lewiston on Sunday morning, as bagpipers play in the middle of Bartlett Street under flags hanging from Lewiston and Auburn ladder trucks. Hundreds of active and retired local, state and federal law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency personnel were recognized for their faithful commitment and self-sacrifice at the annual Mass. The Mass was celebrated by Bishop Robert P. Deeley, who noted that the tradition was revived in the Diocese of Portland after the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, and that gathering to honor our communities' heroes will always be important. "I read last week that now, some 17 years after 2001, we have a generation of youngsters who have little recall of this terrible tragedy," Deeley said during his homily. "Events such as today keep the memory alive of the generosity of those who serve us. We need to pause to give them thanks." Sen. Susan Collins, Rep. Bruce Poliquin, Public Safety Commissioner John Morris and gubernatorial candidate Shawn Moody were among those in attendance.Sun, 16 Sep 2018 21:23:21 +0000 ‘The Predator’ earns $24 million to lead weekend box office https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/the-predator-tops-weekend-box-office/ https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/the-predator-tops-weekend-box-office/#respond Sun, 16 Sep 2018 23:19:19 +0000 https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/the-predator-tops-weekend-box-office/ https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/the-predator-tops-weekend-box-office/feed/ 0 https://multifiles.pressherald.com/uploads/sites/4/2018/09/1565718_Film_Box_Office_49167.jpg-a.jpgThis image released by 20th Century Fox shows a scene from "The Predator."Sun, 16 Sep 2018 21:48:09 +0000 Mainers share the charge they get out of owning electric cars https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/maine-electric-car-owners-share-their-enthusiasm/ https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/maine-electric-car-owners-share-their-enthusiasm/#respond Sun, 16 Sep 2018 23:00:05 +0000 https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/maine-electric-car-owners-share-their-enthusiasm/ https://www.pressherald.com/2018/09/16/maine-electric-car-owners-share-their-enthusiasm/feed/ 0 https://multifiles.pressherald.com/uploads/sites/4/2018/09/1565654_50638-20180916_ElectricCa6.jpgKen Chang of West Gardiner, left, talks electric cars with Mike Stivaletti of South Portland, during an electric car event at the South Portland Community Center on Sunday.
