Comments from University of Maine Cooperative Extension Director John Rebar were included in a Bangor Daily News editorial urging support for an upcoming vote on referendum Question 2, a $7.8 million bond request for the University of Maine System. Rebar provided educational information on the work currently being done in UMaine’s animal and plant diagnostic facility and what a proposed new facility would mean for UMaine. An online version of the editorial carried a photograph of UMaine Extension insect diagnostician Clay Kirby. The website of the Foster’s Daily Democrat newspaper carried an article that advanced a talk Rebar will give on the proposed facility at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25 during UMaine Extension’s annual meeting in the York County Extension office in Springvale. The meeting is free and open to the public.
