Letter: Share the road
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, September 02, 2015 

I am a runner, and as often as possible I try to run on roads where there is minimal traffic, not only for my own safety and health but because I enjoy nature and solitude. I literally have been run off the road, honked at, given that famous middle finger gesture, called names and passed dangerously close by drivers traveling at an absurdly high a rate of speed. I implore folks who encounter a runner — or bicyclist or walker — to please just slow down, look up and pay attention to who is in front of you. Better yet, park the car and get out there running, walking or bicycling. Not only can we work to solve the obesity epidemic, but we might just say “hello” and “how are you?” to each other. ~ Pam Tremblay, Hampden
Hike: Settlement Quarry
Aislinn Sarnacki Act Out Blog - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Settlement Quarry is and old granite quarry in the island town of Stonington that was last active in 1980. The quarry and surrounding forestland was purchased by the Island Heritage Trust in 1996 so that the public could have access to the beautiful property. In addition to the old quarry, which offers a great view of the ocean, the preserve is now home to two hiking trails, the Glacial Erratic Trail and the Grout Pile Trail, as well as the old quarry road.
Officials: Lincoln will ‘keep moving forward’ despite pending mill layoffs
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Lincoln town leaders said Tuesday they hope the pending layoff of 20 to 25 workers from the town’s tissue mill is temporary, driven by market fluctuations. But with an aircraft float manufacturer coming back online, recent expansions of shoreline zoning and several West Broadway businesses transitioning to natural gas heat this week, they said they see Lincoln’s economy remaining vibrant, even with the losses.
Gulf of Maine's Cashes Ledge: Efforts to Extend Federal Protections Rankles Fishing Industry
Maine Public Broadcasting Network - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Several conservation groups are calling on the White House to designate an area of the Gulf of Maine as a National Monument. Cashes Ledge is considered important habitat for cod, and the Conservation Law Foundation, the National Geographic Society, and others say it must be protected. But opponents of the idea, including Maine Gov. Paul LePage, say such a move is undemocratic and unfair to fishermen. The area known as Cashes Ledge is about 80 miles off the Maine and the Massachusetts coast, covers about 500 square miles and contains the largest kelp forest in the North Atlantic. Sean Mahoney of the Conservation Law Foundation says protecting "Cashes Ledge is a key area if we're going to have any hopes of restoring iconic fish like cod."
LePage Asks Maine Delegation to Intervene in Tribal Waters Dispute with Feds
Maine Public Broadcasting Network - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

As the impasse between Maine and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over water quality standards deepens, the LePage administration is threatening to relinquish some or all of the state's delegated authority to ensure compliance with the Clean Water Act. Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Patty Aho has informed the EPA that its new regulations for tribal waters amount to a de facto federalization of the Maine's monitoring program. Meanwhile, Gov. Paul LePage is asking the state's congressional delegation to intervene in the EPA dispute.
Rescued Baxter hiker released from hospital, heads home
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

The elderly hiker rescued after 72 hours lost in Baxter State Park was released from Millinocket Regional Hospital on Tuesday and is headed home, a hospital spokesman said. Virginia resident John Lyon “had a very restful day yesterday and regained much of his strength,” hospital CEO Robert Patterson said in a statement on Tuesday. “He was anxious to get home to Virginia and is flying out today.” A Maine Forest Service helicopter crew rescued the 78-year-old from a rock slide near Annis Brook at Fort Mountain about 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Lyon last had been seen on Marston Trail near Mount Coe on Thursday.
Catalyst makes Rumford paper machine shutdown indefinite
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

The new owner of the Rumford paper mill said it has decided to keep its No. 12 coated paper machine out of production indefinitely, after announcing a temporary shutdown in May that prompted laying off 51 people. The Canadian company purchased the Rumford mill for $62.5 million earlier this year. Antitrust regulators required the former NewPage to sell the Rumford mill and another in Wisconsin before being acquired by Verso Paper Corp., which operates a mill in Jay. The indefinite shutdown announcement comes after news this week that Lincoln Paper and Tissue Co. would lay off 20 to 25 workers with the shutdown of one of its tissue machines. Verso two weeks ago announced plans to lay off 610 people at two mills, including 300 in Jay. The company shuttered its Bucksport mill in December, laying off about 500 employees.
Land trust issues conditions for Cumberland’s use of former Payson property
Forecaster - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

The land trust stewarding a Foreside Road beach property has given the town several conditions to meet before a plan for public use of the property can be implemented. The town bought its portion of the Payson property, 2,200 feet of shoreline and a 200-foot pier, from Portland-based developer Bateman Partners in June 2014. The Payson heirs are suing the town and Chebeague & Cumberland Land Trust, challenging the town’s proposed use of the property. The land trust has been the Payson property’s steward since the 1997 establishment of a conservation easement for the parcel. The heirs have argued that CCLT’s support of the town’s use “is a breach of its obligation as holder of the Conservation Easement,” and that the trust “has failed to enforce the terms” of the easement.
Groups to Seek 'National Monument' Protection for Cashes Ledge
Maine Public Broadcasting Network - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Conservation groups this week will officially call for the Cashes Ledge Closed Area in the Gulf of Maine to be designated a national monument. At an event in Boston Wednesday, the Conservation Law Foundation and others will urge the White House to extend protections to the undersea mountain range about 80 miles east of Cape Ann, Massachusetts. Maine Gov. Paul LePage objects, complaining that such a move would negatively affect many of the state's fishermen.
Great Maine Outdoor Weekend Returns
Appalachian Mountain Club - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Maine’s “Vacationland” appeal isn’t limited to out-of-state visitors. Head out to the state’s parks, trailheads, or trout streams in late September, and you’re likely to see great gatherings of Mainers enjoying their favorite pursuits. Building on that homegrown passion for the outdoors, the eighth biannual Great Maine Outdoor Weekend (GMOW) returns to the Pine Tree State September 25 through 27. First held in March 2012 as a way to make it easy for people to get outside and explore, exercise, and socialize, GMOW has returned every autumn and winter since.
Scientists say 90 percent of all seabirds have ingested plastic debris
Summit Voice - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Plastic debris in the world’s oceans is now so widespread that about 60 percent of all seabirds have bits of plastic in their gut. Based on current trends, 99 percent of all seabirds will be affected by plastic ingestion by 2050, a team of international scientists said this week. Based on a review of all studies published since the early 1960s, the scientists estimated that more than 90 percent of seabirds have alive today have eaten plastic of some kind. In 1960, plastic was found in the stomach of less than 5 per cent of individual seabirds, rising to 80 per cent by 2010.
A Definitive Guide to Congress' Attacks on Conservation Law
Other - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Audubon - This year there’s been a concerted campaign in Congress to hobble major regulations that safeguard animals, land, air, and water. Such assaults aren’t new, but what’s notable is the sheer scale and vociferousness now on display. With Republicans in control of both chambers, and Congress more polarized than at any time in modern history, these onslaughts have a greater likelihood of success than they have in the past. Most of the attacks—including dozens aimed at gutting the ESA—have come in the form of riders, stealth amendments to big bills that have a good chance of passing. But several other methods are being undertaken and by and large they’re couched in anodyne, even appealing, rhetoric. If you value protections for birds and animals, and the natural resources they rely on, keep your eye out for strategies like these.
Appalachian Trail shines in ‘A Walk in the Woods’
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - When the audience at a recent sneak preview of “A Walk in the Woods” saw aerial views of Amicalola Falls and Neel Gap up on the screen, they burst into applause and “oohs” and “aahs.” Robert Redford and Nick Nolte are the big names in this comedy about the misadventures of two middle-age men on the Appalachian Trail. But when the film opens Wednesday, the hikers may find themselves upstaged by the landscape.
Meet the Fishermen from Port Clyde Fresh Catch
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Building boats and fishing occupied every coastal town in Maine during the 1800’s. By 1855 Maine was building 35 percent of all of America’s ships, and its fisheries fed much of the country. Today Maine has only 20 miles of working waterfront left, and 80 percent of the seafood eaten in America is imported. In 2007, Port Clyde was the last surviving ground-fishing fleet between Portland and Canada. To save their livelihood a group of fishermen got together to found Port Clyde Fresh Catch and became the first community-supported fishery in the United States. The fishermen of Port Clyde Fresh Catch will present an illustrated panel discussion about fishing in Maine, their pioneering community-supported fishery, how they started it today at 7 p.m.
Weaknesses cited at Fish and Wildlife Department
George Smith's Outdoor News Blog - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

I gave readers a chance to tell me what they saw as DIF&W’s weaknesses. Here’s some of what they told me. Complaints about the warden service and how DIF&W is poorly managing deer were common. Some complained about the costs of various licenses. Here are some of the weaknesses I see inside and outside the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
Obama paints doomsday scenario of global warming in Alaska
Associated Press - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

President Barack Obama is painting a doomsday scenario for the Arctic and beyond if climate change isn’t dealt with fast: entire nations submerged underwater, cities abandoned and refugees fleeing in droves as conflict breaks out across the globe. It’s a harrowing image of a future that Obama insists is inevitable unless the world follows his and America’s lead by making sweeping cuts to greenhouse gases. Lest his sense of urgency get lost, Obama was to drive the message home on Tuesday by hiking a melting glacier in Alaska. He brought fresh attention to deep and persistent divisions in the U.S. over how to balance the nation’s energy and environmental needs.
Editorial: Bottled water’s rise over soda a mixed blessing
Portland Press Herald - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Buying water by the bottle used to be something for Europeans, who would swear by the health benefits of products associated with spas in the mountains. Americans were fine with soda pop. Not any more. The average person in this country drinks 35 gallons of bottled water a year, more than twice the amount that people drank 15 years ago. Bottled water might be good for you but not so good for the environment. It takes energy to manufacture the billions of bottles that Americans use each year, and energy to truck them to market, adding to the greenhouse gases that cause climate change. Many of the empties end up as litter and the ones that are thrown away fill landfills. Fortunately, there is an alternative. Bottled water is not any better for you than tap water.
Letter: Bridgton cottages not so eco-friendly
Portland Press Herald - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

It’s an admirable goal to create “energy efficient living for active adults.” But even a cursory review reveals that Main Eco Homes’ Cottages at Willett Brook in Bridgton falls far short of minimally responsible, sustainable, energy-efficient building and site design. The estimated annual cost of $400 for electricity, heating, and cooling is based on optional solar panels but the site plan demonstrates little sensitivity to solar orientation. The R-values for wall insulation proposed for the cottages are some of the lowest. Vinyl siding is among the most environmentally harmful, yet is specified on these houses. When investigating “eco” descriptions, buyers need to be informed about what constitutes environmentally responsible design and construction. The Cottages at Willett Brook does not. ~ Richard Burt, Round Pond
Letter: The world is a big place
Sun Journal - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

Michael Brakey appears to think he has a good reason for being a denier of climate change (Sun Journal, Aug. 26). He wants to believe that the Earth’s heat records in July, as reported by NOAA, must be inaccurate because the Farmers’ Almanac is predicting another cold and nasty winter. ~ Scott Roberts
Letter: Cut carbon
Bangor Daily News - Tuesday, September 01, 2015 

On Aug. 21, I joined a dozen of my neighbors for a visit to Sen. Susan Collins’ office in Bangor to encourage her to support the president’s Clean Power Plan. I was glad to see the BDN strongly endorse the Clean Power Plan a few days before our meeting. Maine is well positioned to comply and exceed emission reduction targets contained in the Clean Power Plan thanks to our participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. Maine has everything to gain and nothing to lose from the Clean Power Plan. Big polluters and their allies in Congress are trying to block these landmark safeguards. I urge Collins and Sen. Angus King to take a stand for the Clean Power Plan and to defend it against attacks in Washington. ~ Adria Elskus, Old Town
Lincoln Paper and Tissue laying off 25 employees
Portland Press Herald - Monday, August 31, 2015 

Lincoln Paper and Tissue is shutting down one of its three paper machines and laying off 25 people. The Maine Department of Labor confirmed Monday that the mill and its union have contacted the state agency to activate its Rapid Response team, which assists workers facing job losses. The mill employs about 215 people in Lincoln, who make consumer paper products like napkins and towels, and specialty products for health care and industrial uses. A 10-day shutdown at the mill occurred in September 2014 for maintenance and to manage inventory. A Labor Department spokeswoman said the workers will be laid off indefinitely.
Drop in Canadian tourists impacts Maine businesses
WGME-TV13 - Monday, August 31, 2015 

The Canadian dollar is hitting historic lows this summer and some Maine business owners are feeling the effects. Guy Coutu came to Old Orchard Beach from Quebec City for the Challenge Triathlon this weekend. But some of his friends couldn't afford it. He says the exchange rate is just too high. With the Canadian dollar at an 11-year-low, motel owners say many are opting for shorter trips less often. The Canadian dollar is only worth about 75 cents in American currency. So if someone books a room for $125 a night they're actually paying about $156 in Canadian currency.
Rescued hiker recounts three-day ordeal in Baxter State Park
Portland Press Herald - Monday, August 31, 2015 

As a veteran outdoorsman who has logged thousands of miles on trails, John Lyon was scratched up, bruised but still feeling confident during the first two days he was lost in the dense, mountainous forests of Baxter State Park last week. It was on the third day alone in Baxter, however, that the “What if?” questions began creeping into the 78-year-old’s mind. That was until he spotted another rescue helicopter circling overhead. “I prayed right before then, and I never pray,” Lyon said with a laugh Monday. Lyon said he would probably continue hiking – he tries to go twice a week – but would stick with his group and make sure he has a map.
Conservation groups eye protection for Cashes Ledge
Other - Monday, August 31, 2015 

Salem (MA) News - National groups this week plan to call for sprawling areas in the Gulf of Maine to be declared the first “marine national monument” on the Eastern Seaboard. A January 2009 presidential proclamation established three Pacific Marine National Monuments. Now the Conservation Law Foundation and partners, such as the National Geographic Society, Pew Charitable Trusts and the Natural Resources Defense Council, are seeking protections for the Cashes Ledge Closed Area and the New England Canyons and Seamounts off Cape Cod — areas CLF describes as “deep sea treasures.”
Do you remember these 11 former LePage administration commissioners?
Bangor Daily News - Monday, August 31, 2015 

Patricia Aho’s departure as head of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, announced Monday, makes her the 12th Cabinet-level commissioner to leave Gov. Paul LePage’s administration in the 4½ years since the governor took office. LePage had three of his commissioners depart in his first year on the job. Six LePage commissioners (out of 13 Cabinet-level agencies) have remained in their posts since the 2011 start of the administration. Here are the 11 LePage administration commissioners who have moved on.
