WATCH: In Old Town: New name, same mission

An agency that has worked to prevent isolation among residents of Portland’s Old Town has hit its silver anniversary.  

The Maybelle Center for Community — once known as the Macdonald Center — was established by Holy Cross Father Richard Berg. In the late 1980s, Father Berg was assigned as pastor of the Catholic parish in Old Town, home to a large part of Portland’s homeless population. Father Berg, a trained psychologist, told staff and parishioners that loneliness and isolation intensify the problems of homelessness and that community might be the way out.

Monster Trucks
NEW YORK (CNS) — The action comedy "Monster Trucks" (Paramount) certainly lives up to its title. It has strange creatures mysteriously propelling utilitarian vehicles in the absence of an internal combustion engine. It also sees to it that some bad guys meet justice, as you might expect.
