Dr. Sylvester Gardiner became the unwitting founder of a city in 1754, when he decided to use a 130-foot waterfall on the Cobbosseecontee Stream to provide energy for two saw mills, a felting mill, a potash factory, and a grist mill. Nearly 100 years later, in 1849, his plantation became the city of Gardiner. Today, the historical New England mill town is a home to artists, merchants, and students, and also hosts an array of seasonal events, such as an Easter parade, the Ride Into Summer festival, the Swine and Stein Oktoberfest celebration, and a Christmas tree lighting. The town's brick sidewalks, Victorian and early 20th-century architecture, and long-running farmer's market have earned it a designation as a Main Street Maine and Preserve America community. Its downtown is recognized as a National Historic District, and some of its buildings have been included in both the National Register of Historic Places and the Empire State Building's list of secret crushes. Self-guided walking tours of the town take visitors past the homes of Pulitzer Prize–winning writers, such as poet Edwin Arlington Robinson and author Laura E. Richards.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews. Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.

Drawing on a psychic ability she has experienced since birth, Kat Logan connects with the unseen and works with spiritual energy to help her clients navigate their lives and illnesses. As an intuitive medium with more than 25 years of experience, Kat guides clients through readings—during which she ensures that relationships and careers are headed in the right direction, meets with spirit guides and angels, and delves into past lives. She also discovers patterns and areas of potential, all without using crystal balls or divining cards, which can only tell you how likely you are to win at cribbage. Kat also channels spiritual energy to heal and renew her clients during energy-work sessions intended to reduce stress and realign auric fields. Her other talents include drawing and painting, which she employs to craft aura portraits and personal mandalas. Although she prefers to meet at her home, Kat will travel for group meetings held in the comfort of a host’s sand castle and can do readings over the phone or through email.

The 4-year-old lion Mufasa roams his cage, purring between bites of raw meat, as his sister, Tawana, roars behind him. Mufasa, dubbed ?Maine?s Little Lion King? by DEW Animal Kingdom and Sanctuary?s caretakers Bob and Julie Miner, may be the nonprofit sanctuary?s most visible inhabitant, but he?s far from its only attraction. Across 42 acres of land, the roars and deep purrs of big cats mix with the quacks of ducks and the snorts of pigs. Owners tend to gibbons, spider monkeys, and lemurs as they swing from trees inside a primate enclosure. Meanwhile, orphaned and injured native-Maine animals such as owls are sequestered for rehabilitation before being released back into the wild or signed for exclusive Tootsie Pops endorsements.

Organized and curated by the Maine Film Center, the MIFF has been celebrating local and international cinema since 1998. For nearly two weeks, the society fills the Waterville Opera House and Railroad Square Cinema with screenings, panel discussions, and catchphrase workshops for aspiring action stars. Every year, the festival presents a worthy performer with their forward-looking Mid-Life Achievement Award, which assures winners such as Malcolm McDowell, John Turturro, Ed Harris, and Terrence Malick that their greatest works are not necessarily behind them.

Over seven years, the Boston String Quartet has vibrated strings in collaboration with artists such as John Mayer and the Boston Ballet, stirred the air molecules at Symphony Hall and PBS, and performed by invitation for former President George H.W. Bush. With this deal, eighth-note connoisseurs can wrap their eardrums around the quartet's dulcet tones as they present "Xibus," an evening of contemporary and classical that marks the zenith of a two-day workshop collaborating with Finneytown High School orchestra students. Over the course of the evening program, the quartet and the students will cajole their chordophones into ringing out in harmonious arrangements of music by Carlos Santana, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Bill Gates's new Viking-punk band, as well as performing original compositions by members of Boston String Quartet.
