Verso workers won’t be laid off until end of December
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

Millworkers who expected to be laid off as soon as Dec. 1 will get a monthlong reprieve, as Verso Mill officials announced this week they will not let workers go until the end of the month. Bill Cohen, spokesman for Verso, said Wednesday that the company will stop making paper in Bucksport on Thursday, Dec. 4. But workers will stay on the employment rolls until Dec. 31 in order to clean up, winterize and “mothball the machines,” he said. Many of the workers who will be laid off by Verso were making paper in Bucksport long before the company owned the mill. Champion sold the mill to International Paper in 2000, and Verso was spun off from International Paper in 2006.
Zoning request for Fore Street in Portland draws building height questions
Forecaster - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

A Nov. 18 waterfront stroll provided a chance to envision the future of the Portland Company complex at 58 Fore St. Jim Brady and his CPB2 LLC partners Casey Prentice and Kevin Costello bought the historic 10-acre property from Phineas Sprague Jr. in July 2013. They are now seeking zoning changes Brady said are not only needed for future development of the 170-year-old site, but to conform with the Eastern Waterfront Master Plan. Brady said any construction will be placed inside "view corridors" to protect views along the streets intersecting Fore Street. View corridors did not impress St. Lawrence Street resident Peter Macomber. "(View corridors are) a ridiculous sop to the public and are tantamount to telling people to look through the wrong end of a telescope with blinders on; those corridors only compartmentalize and minimize the view and conceal more than they reveal," Macomber said. "The only real 'view corridor' is the one that fully encompasses the entire viewshed, not tiny slivers of it."
Greenville selectmen continue work on snowmobile trail access after route cut off
Piscataquis Observer - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

The Greenville Board of Selectmen continued to work on ways to provide more snowmobile access in and around the community after learning that one major route through private property would be cut off this year. At their Nov. 19 meeting, the board unanimously voted to have Town Manager John Simko draft a letter to the property owners along the section of Scammon Road not maintained by the town, informing them that the town is willing to take over this section for summer and winter maintenance in exchange for the immediate use of the road as an ITS snowmobile trail.
Cedar Beach access advocates ask Harpswell for $110K
Forecaster - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

The group that fought a lengthy court battle for public use of a private road that accesses a Bailey Island beach is asking the town to pay $110,000 to cover some of its legal costs. In a Nov. 21 letter, Cedar Beach/Cedar Island Supporters said it has so far incurred $190,000 in legal expenses and expects to spend at least $220,000 to continue litigating over public access to the road that leads to Cedar Beach. Property owners cut off access to Cedar Beach and the narrow, dirt road leading to it in 2011. That sparked an effort to reclaim the public's traditional use of the area. CB/CIS was formed in 2012, and ended up suing two landowners to obtain a public easement.
Abol Bridge campground owners, maple syrup producers look to expand operations
Piscataquis Observer - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

The Piscataquis County Commissioners agreed to sign letters of intent that will allow a pair of local businesses to apply for Community Development Block Grants. Ken Woodbury, community development director, outlined the goals of each business. David and Luisa Surprenant of Abol Bridge LLC operate the Chesuncook House, Abol Bridge Campgrounds and Rip Dam Sporting Camp, according to Woodbury, and they want to add more cabins at Rip Dam and campsites at Abol Bridge. “They also want to expand the restaurant at Abol to include a store, and to build a store at Rip Dam. There used to be one there [at Rip Dam] but it was torn down.” A $50,000 microenterprise grant for Maine Highlands Sugarworks would let the owner, Michelle Weeks, buy equipment to expand production.
10 family-friendly walks for after the big holiday meal
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

When the turkey’s eaten and the pies gobbled, it’s almost inevitable: lethargy and sleepiness typically follows. But instead of lying on the couch for a nap, why not walk it off? Several studies have shown that when people take a short walk after a large meal it can aid in digestion. In fact, a 2013 study published by the American Diabetes Association found that walking for just 15 minutes after a meal can lower blood sugar levels. Here are a few Maine spots ideal for a post-meal stroll.
High court will review EPA regulations
Associated Press - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

The U.S. Supreme Court is stepping into a new case about Obama administration environmental rules, agreeing to review a ruling that upholds emission standards for mercury and other hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. The justices on Tuesday said they would hear arguments from industry groups and states that are challenging Environmental Protection Agency rules designed to clean up chromium, arsenic, acid gases, nickel, cadmium as well as mercury and other dangerous toxins.
Letter: Credit King for opposing Keystone XL
Portland Press Herald - Wednesday, November 26, 2014 

Independent U.S. Sen. Angus King deserves thanks for voting against approval of Keystone XL. I believe his vote will help persuade President Obama to disapprove of construction of the pipeline. Judging from Maine’s recent election results, it may well be that the majority of Mainers wanted King to approve XL, but I am extremely thankful that he did not. Even climate change deniers have to admit that the mining of tar sands oil, which Keystone XL would transport, is devastating the landscape. Thank you, Sen. King. ~ Fern Stearns, Orland
EXCLUSIVE: Citizen initiative started to repeal Maine's wind power law
Maine Environmental News - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

Dan Remian of Cushing has launched a citizen initiative to repeal the Wind Energy Act of Maine. He is seeking signatures and support for the effort, according to his Facebook page, "to fix Maine's flawed wind law."
Orland residents seek moratorium on wind project
Ellsworth American - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

At a forum last week, the Orland Selectmen and Planning Board heard appeals from a citizens group trying to delay the proposal of a 9-megawatt wind power facility in north Orland. Calling itself Friends of Dodge Hill, the group is collecting signatures and petitioning the town to adopt a moratorium on turbine applications. Eolian Renewable Power, a Portsmouth, N.H., wind developer, hasn’t yet filed an application with the Planning Board. According to its website, the proposed project would be located on leased private land atop Whites Mountain and Dodge Hill, near the borders of Dedham, Bucksport and Ellsworth.
Despite Keystone opposition, King agrees with LePage on natural gas pipeline expansion to Maine
Sun Journal - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

U.S. Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, said he agrees with newly re-elected Gov. Paul LePage that elected officials from New England states should work together to expand natural gas pipeline capacity to the region. King said New England enjoys proximity to the Marcellus shale, a major source of natural gas, but the region’s inability to access the resource is crippling the state’s ability to produce low-priced energy. “It’s just killing us,” King said. “And it’s so frustrating because we are sitting next to one of the greatest natural gas deposits in the world and we can’t get it in, just because of pipeline capacity.”
Hike: Caterpillar Hill in Sedgwick
Aislinn Sarnacki Act Out Blog - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

While driving along Route 15 in Sedgwick, people often pullover at the Caterpillar Hill Scenic Overlook to take in stunning views of the coast. From atop the hill on a clear day, one can see to the islands of Penobscot Bay, Eggemoggin Reach, and the Camden Hills. Fortunately for people who enjoy a good stroll, there are some trails in that scenic area as well. Just below the roadside overlook is a network of footpaths that travel around the blueberry fields and mossy woods of Caterpillar Hill, thanks to Blue Hill Heritage Trust.
Harpswell starts planning for rising sea level
Forecaster - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

The town is joining several coastal communities in Maine and beyond that are starting to plan for the effects of sea-level rise brought on by global climate change. To kick off the process, the conservation commission and planning office are planning an interactive workshop in late December or early January to review scenarios that show how sea-level rise will impact the town's infrastructure and geography. Harpswell is one of Maine's most coastal communities, boasting 216 miles of coastline, or about a third of the entire coastline of Casco Bay. About 20 percent of the town's land is within 250 feet of the water.
East Millinocket officials name new administrative assistant
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

East Millinocket town leaders have named Angela Cote the town’s new administrative assistant to replace retired assistant Shirley Tapley. They await the results of a bankruptcy auction of the former Great Northern Paper Co. LLC mill on Main Street on Dec. 2. They have pressed Gov. Paul LePage and the bankruptcy trustee, attorney Pasquale J. “Pat” Perrino, to select from the 12 potential bidders a buyer who would restart the mill, which was the town’s largest single employer and taxpayer. Under federal bankruptcy law, Perrino can pick a bidder that he feels best suits creditors and the state.
New EPA report could be a boon to Maine biomass energy producers
Sun Journal - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

A new analysis by the federal Environmental Protection Agency may be good news for Maine firms that make electricity by burning wood, but some environmental groups are crying foul. The new EPA analysis, issued last week, suggests how the federal government will count greenhouse gas emissions from wood-fired biomass facilities, and an accompanying memo from a top-ranking EPA official suggests biomass producers will likely get a pass when it comes to strict, new carbon dioxide regulations.
Falmouth council OKs 1 plan for cutting trees, defeats another
Forecaster - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

The Falmouth Town Council was split Monday night over harvesting plans in one forest, but unanimously approved harvesting in another. Councilors voted 6-0 for the 2015 Forest Harvesting Plan for the Woods Road Community Forest, but defeated a harvesting plan in the Blackstrap Hill Community Forest, 3-3. The Town Council suggested that a broader ecological survey of parcels with management plans was needed for the Blackstrap Hill Community Forest.
Opinion: Time is running short: We can build political will for a climate-protecting carbon fee
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

The U.S.-China deal on carbon emissions reached earlier this month is good news, even though the emission reductions are not nearly enough to preserve a stable climate. The deal calls for the U.S. to reduce its emissions by 26 percent by 2025 and for China to shift 20 percent of its electricity to zero-emission sources by 2030. Even if other countries follow the lead, the volume of carbon emissions between now and 2030 would still push the global average temperature more than 2 degrees Celsius over the global pre-industrial average, a point at which catastrophic consequences are likely. So the deal is not enough, but it is a significant step in the right direction after years of impasse on global climate cooperation. ~ Michael Howard, University of Maine
Maine Officials Warn of Wreath, Tree-Mailing Rules
Associated Press - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is advising residents who send Christmas trees and wreaths out of state to be aware of mailing regulations. State horticulturist Ann Gibbs says many states closely monitor the shipment of plants to prevent the spread of plant diseases and invasive insects.
Acadia National Park's Visitor Use Plan For Isle Au Haut Allows For Slight Increase In Daily Visitation
National Parks Traveler - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

Visitors to Acadia National Park who want to escape the crowds might consider a trip to Isle au Haut, a relatively little-known piece of the park that occupies an island south of Mount Desert Island. Under a visitor use management plan adopted by the park, daily visitation to the island will be capped at 128, although the park will allow higher visitation on six days in July and August. The numbers aren't much of a change from the capacity limit that has been enforced for the island since the late 1980s. That cap was 120 per day — 90 day visitors and 30 overnight campers — and since 2002 daily visitation has surpassed 128 just four times.
Ski resorts going green to get better, cheaper snow
Associated Press - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

Northeast ski resorts continue to invest millions in leaner and meaner snowmaking guns. In Maine, nearly every resort is moving to the low-energy snow guns so that they can be up and running for the December holiday week, if not much sooner. Sunday River in Newry, Maine, with its arsenal of snowmaking, opened Nov. 3. Sugarloaf Mountain Resort began making snow back in late September and opened Nov. 9.
Student art exhibit along two Portland trails envisions the effect of rising sea level
Portland Press Herald - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

A group of University of Southern Maine students is installing an interactive art exhibit along Portland’s Bayside and Eastern Promenade trails aimed at helping users visualize the potential impact of sea-level rise tied to climate change. Students used GPS technology and “inundation maps” to create a walking tour of the Portland peninsula’s waterfront and parts of downtown if sea levels rise 3 feet by the year 2100, as some international reports suggest. The “King Tides Trail” largely follows the Bayside and Eastern Prom trails but will feature stations at locations that the project’s creators say will help users observe the tides as they are today and envision what they could look like in the future.
Response to "Tax credit is critical for wind industry"
Portland Press Herald - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

This letter is wrong on so many levels. Carbon-sequestering forests, mountain summits that are natural and unspoiled (now slated for dynamiting and excavating), wildlife corridors that are uninterrupted, water sources originating from the high peaks which have not been fractured and filled with toxic concrete, raptors, migrating birds — which suffer death and injury when 500 foot tall turbines whose blades rotate at speeds approaching 200 MPH are sited in places within their natural corridors or habitual environments…and the list goes on. If Maine truly wants to lead in the environmental front, we will dedicate ourselves to preserving that which makes this state so special. ~ Karen Pease, Lexington Twp.
Letter: Tax credit is critical for wind industry
Portland Press Herald - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

Maine has received $1 billion in investment from wind developers since 2004, creating new work for 300 Maine businesses, which, in turn, employ hundreds of Mainers. However, when the production tax credit was not renewed in 2013, not only did wind development suffer in Maine, it suffered across the nation, causing a loss of 30,000 U.S. wind jobs. We can’t afford to repeat this mistake as wind industry experts predict it will support 500,000 jobs by 2030 if Congress votes to reinstate the production tax credit. ~ Morgan Rogers, Portland
Letter: Wild is wild
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

The front page of the Nov. 20 BDN featured a photo of a bear licking the face of the man who had raised it in a rehabilitation facility. I applaud the aims of the family in raising the wild animals. These animals should never be portrayed as pets and should always be regarded as wild. A second picture from the same article showed what was said the be a fallow deer at the same facility. It is not, in fact, a fallow deer but what I believe to be a red deer stag. A fallow deer is often spotted and has a different type of antler development — webbed antlers. Please, let’s get it right. ~ Jeff Weathersbee, Dover Foxcroft
Letter: Part of the effort
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, November 25, 2014 

Now is the right time for the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Park and National Recreation Area. Studies show that national parks stimulate economic growth along with community vitality. Acadia National Park brought in $186 million in 2011 and supports 3,000 jobs. Nationwide our 59 national parks support 250,000 jobs and $13 billion are spent within 60 miles of them. Local reluctance is starting to soften as the economic options for the region shrink. The park is essentially a gift Quimby Foundation is willing to give us, and the time has come to accept this gift. What remains is to demonstrate our interest to Congress. I hope all Mainers can be part of this effort. ~ Steve Bien, Jay

Trade deals criminalise farmers' seeds
What could be more routine than saving seeds from one season to the next? After all, that is how we grow crops on our farms and in our gardens. Yet from Guatemala to Ghana, from Mozambique to Malaysia, this basic practice is being turned into a criminal offence, so that half a dozen large multinational corporations can turn seeds into private property and make money from them.

Billions of Gallons Used to Frack “Monster Wells,” Even in Drought Areas
By Shannon Van Hoesen - The oil and gas industry insists that hydraulic fracturing of natural gas and oil wells does not threaten America’s water supplies. But a new report by Environmental Working Group finds that hundreds of “monster wells” across the country were fracked with 10 to 25 million gallons of water each – and many that used the most water were in drought-stricken areas.

Op-Ed by Ben Martens - On Nov. 5, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s Northern Shrimp Section met in Portland and, after a scientific presentation, voted unanimously to close the shrimp fishery for another year. The handful of fishermen and processors in the room pleaded for a short season - anything to keep boats on the water. However, the results of the annual survey and stock assessment showed the second lowest biomass on record (the lowest was in 2013).

Researcher Enlists Honeybees as “Flying Doctors” Against Crop Disease
Strawberry fields in Finland are plagued by grey mold, a fungus that quickly transforms scarlet berries into shaggy grey blobs, wrecking 20 percent of the country’s annual crop, on average. But Finland’s organic fruit farmers have a swarm of new allies in the battle against grey mold. Dr. Heikki Hokkanen, a researcher at the University of Helsinki, has enlisted bees to carry biological treatments from flower to flower, warding off disease as they pollinate.

Don't let Big Meat eat our bumper crop
By Jim Kleinschmidt - The last few years have not been good for the factory farm industry. High prices for corn and other crops (in part driven by the growth of ethanol) made feed costs incredibly high, while at the same time, environmental and animal welfare advocates have been winning ballot and marketplace battles to shift more meat production out of intensive confinement and industrial systems.
