Are you bored?  

More than 300 Students from the Blue Hill region were asked what activities they think will make life more interesting.  Popular ideas for dealing with boredom included music, paintball, 4-wheeling, and movies.  Many students have a hard time getting around and would like to have a bus that could take them to Ellsworth or Bangor.  Others would like to have more dances with live bands or DJs.  To learn more, click here for the detailed results.
