Good evening. As a possible federal government shutdown looms, Maine Sen. Susan Collins said Monday that such a shutdown at the end of this month would have serious consequences, including the closure of national parks and federal offices. Rep. Jared Golden says he is joining with colleagues on a bipartisan bill to continue the current level of funding until Jan. 11,  along with specific funding to support Ukraine and other provisions.

The University of Maine System is getting creative to entice people with partially completed college degrees to return. The program, dubbed Finish Strong, will use $750,000 in grant money to provide financial incentives, including a $300 payment upon enrollment for returning UMaine students and a buy-one-get-one-free discount on courses.

Join us on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a special subscriber meet-and-greet with Press Herald leaders - and get your free flu vaccine at the same time. Executive Editor Steve Greenlee and Managing Editor Nita Lelyveld will be available to chat with visitors, so bring your questions and your insurance card, and come see how the paper is made.

Our Like A Boss event at the Roux Institute on Wednesday at 8 a.m. will bring together Publisher and CEO Lisa DeSisto in conversation with USM President Dr. Jacqueline Edmondson. Register for the event here.
