Taking a look back at the past 90 years of our campus newspaper and highlighting noteworthy items that perhaps were best forgotten.

Comic of someone looking at two maple trees saying "I'd tap that"

Comic original published The Farmington Flyer in April 2007.






I would too; it looks like a strong and healthy tree. I might even tap it twice, depending on the DBH.

We all love maple syrup, and it’s really too bad that there isn’t the gallon jug of it in the dining hall this year. The corn syrup they have instead just doesn’t do it for us snobby Mainers; we’d rather eat our pancakes dry.

Personally, I’ve started bringing my own bottle of maple syrup with me to the dining hall, but that trend doesn’t seem to have caught on yet.
