06/12/2013 10:03 AM ET  

During his tenure, Glenn Adams tackled a wide range of stories, from the young peace activist Samantha Smith to the state government shutdown under Gov. John McKernan.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Glenn Adams, Maine State House correspondent for The Associated Press, is retiring after 32 years of covering the news from around the capital and across the state.

During his tenure, Adams tackled a wide range of stories, from the young peace activist Samantha Smith to the state government shutdown under Gov. John McKernan to the ongoing budget battle between the current Legislature and Republican Gov. Paul LePage.

The job also put Adams in the backseat of a Navy F/A-18 Hornet, atop a 400-foot-tall wind turbine and in Newfoundland for a caribou roundup.

The New Jersey native called his AP career "the ride of a lifetime.'' In retirement, he says he hopes to ride his motorcycle, travel and spend time at the lake.
