Feature obituary: Charlotte Sinnett, 95, devoted to family, volunteering, science - Press Herald

Monday, May 01, 2017

She was remembered by her children Friday as a strong and independent woman who lived life to its fullest. “She was a wonderful woman,” said her son Everett Sinnett of Rockville, Maryland. “She lived a good long life.”Mrs. Sinnett graduated from the University of Maine in 1943 with a degree in mathematics. It was there that she met her husband, Clifford Sinnett. The two had a statistics class together. They were married on Jan. 29, 1944. He served in the Navy during World War II, while she analyzed sonar acoustics at the Underwater Sound Laboratory at Harvard University. In 1946, the Sinnetts moved to Vannah Avenue in Portland, where they raised three sons. Her husband worked as an investment adviser, while she stayed home to raise their kids. A loving and attentive mother, she was fearless, adventurous and devoted to the family, her sons said.When her husband was called to serve during the Korean War, Mrs. Sinnett traveled from Portland to Japan by train and ship with their 5- and 2-year-old children and an infant in tow. The family spent the next year in Japan.Chandler Sinnett, the youngest of her sons, shared memories of their summers on Bailey Island. His parents built a cottage on the island in 1957, where Mrs. Sinnett often led her kids on walks to explore tidal pools and marine life. She also shared her passion for science with them. “She was Mom,” Chandler Sinnett said. “She was always there

Inmate who died at Maine State Prison had filed federal civil rights suit - Bangor Daily News

Monday, May 01, 2017

Officials then blocked prison phones from being able to call the radio station, and Brown was transferred shortly afterward to a prison in Maryland.His lawyer argued that existing federal case law establishes the right of prisoners to serve in this role but the case was dismissed in fall 2008.In an effort to change how prisoner transfers work, Ron Huber of Rockland, host of the show on which Brown appeared, wrote the first draft of LD 690, An Act to Amend the Laws Governing the Transfer of Prisoners to Other States.When the measure was considered by lawmakers in 2011, Huber said he believed some prisoners were transferred out of state as a form of punishment and that Brown was sent away for being a whistleblower, which corrections officials denied.The legislation was not adopted, but it did lead to a state policy requiring a plan to return prisoners sent out of state back to Maine, as well as checks and balances for those facing being sent out ot state, according to his obituary.

Lawrence J. Hogan Sr., Md. Republican who called for Nixon's impeachment, dies at 88 - Washington Post

Monday, May 01, 2017

By Matt Schudel, Lawrence J. Hogan Sr., a combative Maryland political figure who rose to national prominence in 1974 by being the first Republican member of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee to call for President Richard M. Nixon’s impeachment, died April 20 at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis. He was 88.His son, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan Jr. (R), announced the death. A spokesman for the governor said the elder Mr. Hogan died of complications from a stroke.A onetime FBI agent, Mr. Hogan projected an image as a scrappy politician and conservative stalwart as a three-term congressman in the 1960s and 1970s and later as Prince George’s county executive.Nevertheless, he possessed an independent streak, most visibly when he put his political future at risk by turning against a president from his own party during the Watergate scandal.After being an early volunteer for his fellow Massachusetts native, Democratic presidential hopeful John F. Kennedy, Mr. Hogan switched parties during the 1960 campaign and threw his support to Nixon.M
