Geese Lives Matter

“Nestled along Rangeley Lake, the town’s year-round population of 1,200 swells to more than 7,000 in the summer. The same things that bring all those visitors — the lake and surrounding open, natural spaces — also attracts flocks of migrating Canada geese, which are more than happy to drop in for an extended visit. And, […]

Roxanne Quimby 1 – Maine People 0

I would suggest that you also read this article about how the Federal Government goes about their business of taking lands in or near national monuments, along with the control they assume over those private lands.

Will Quimby’s New Obama Playground Destroy Baxter State Park?

Oh, the cries to protect wilderness! Many cried to protect the beauty and the “wilderness” of the Yellowstone National Park. And did they? I suppose it depends on your political perspective definition of what “wilderness” is…right Slick Willie? Yellowstone, often described as the model of how all lands should be “protected” has limited access but […]

Outdoors in Maine: The National Monument to Kafka

He also seeks to seduce us with his assurance that the new Monument encompasses a deep respect for “Maine’s outdoor recreation heritage,” or that it acknowledges that “hunting is critical to the economy of northern Maine.” That has a hollow ring. Bear hunting, which is a key economic industry for rural Maine guides and outfitters, […]

Pardon my French on Katahdin Woods and Waters Monument

Alternatives like donating the land to Baxter — a jewel that sets the standard for state parks nationwide — were never seriously explored. Instead, D.C.-based lobbyists were hired and economic development reports — full of flaws — were commissioned. Many thought the fix was in; the canned federal website bolsters that theory. But at the […]

Quimby Deeds Her Land To “The Lamb With Two Horns That Speaks Like a Dragon”

I read in the Bangor Daily News of the transfer of deeds of around 87,000 acres of land from Roxanne Quimby to the United States Government – presumably the next step toward President Obama, by Executive Order, designating the lands that contain nothing, a National Monument. In that article, Maine Rep. Stephen Stanley was quoted […]

Protected Predator Species Endangering Other Species

Of course the headline is really nothing new to honest researchers. We have known for some time that over-protected predator species raise hell with other species in order to survive.
