We're on deck with the State's best high school sailors in their program, Sail Maine. We'll sit down with the man who defended the Boston Strangler and O.J. Simpson, Defense Attorney F. Lee Bailey. And We'll look at Polio, a devastating disease that was virtually cured in this country as The Pine Tree Society commemorates its 75th Anniversary.

A little personal note here. It's Derby Day! Hope the race doesn't run late. I was married on Derby Day in 1986. My son is graduating from college today! I like Derby Day!
The first piece is on Sail Maine's high school sailing program. We covered the Cheverus Cup. It was fun. Sail Maine is in the business of getting more people to sail. If you are interested in getting someone-especially you-into the sport. Check out the organization by clicking on their website below.
F. Lee Bailey. What an interesting guy. Maine is lucky to have him here and he has a couple of projects in the pipeline that may help Maine enormously. He's a charming fellow to be around. For more information check out his website.
The third piece tonight was on a cure for poison ivy. You can just go out and pick sweet fern-if you know how to do it. If not, it's best to order it from the website below. Make it into a tea and get ready to rub it on, because the poison ivy is already growing.
And what a weird guy I am to do a story on polio. I was just young enough to not be exposed to polio. I got the vaccine. Still, this story is dedicated to my mom who was petrified that one of her kids would get it. Thanks for looking out for me, Mom! Happy Mothers' Day!
