In the middle of the night, flyers promoting the KKK were dropped in the Sand Hill neighborhood of Augusta, ME. Reactions to the flyers have varied; some people were surprised, some outraged, while some took it in stride. I toured the Sand Hill neighborhood of Augusta to see how people were responding to the presence of hate in their community.

The tournament is a fundraiser for his non-profit, MemoryWorks, which connects people suffering from dementia and memory loss to resources and information. Ken is sharp witted and funny but he suffers from memory loss himself, which impacts his ability to play the game he loves so much.
