    If they are going to close it anyway,why not give it to the city and maybe they can find someone to come in and run it.

      who cares??? Are you serious?  Why not ask the Old Man who visits his wife 3 times a day or the lady who sits with her husband daily or the daughters that are beside their mothers for every meal…Ask the staff who are losing their jobs due to a potential closure ask the Citizens of Washington County who have aging parents/ grandparents that someday may need a home with a loving caring staff to take care of them when the family no longer can!!! Ask again, who cares…I CARE!!!

        who cares? Ask the young CNA that lost her job this week, ask that same CNA who out of fear, moved her mother to a nursing home 60 miles from home…ask her if she cares?

          Very sad situation.  But this CNA pulling her mother out, didn’t help her chances with keeping her job.  Hopefully those that have moved can be moved back if an arrangement can be made for Calais to take the place over.

      Alot of people from this area CARE….so I don’t care that you don’t care but I had to inform you that “ALOT” of people, families, communities and so on CARE! Someday you will grow older and maybe you might need a placement and nurses to take care of you…but maybe just maybe there won’t be any nursing home in your community and the closest one might be hours away from your loved ones. Just saying.

      Skullfire-I DONT CARE THAT YOU DONT CARE! Good luck to you in your future….hopefully they wont kick you to the curb when your in need of help someday. You should be really ashaimed of yourself. I’ll say alittle prayer for you.

    Its Calais…. I lived there for 23 years and have never seen a town run into the ground as bad as Calais. Opportunities for profitable projects get rejected because the city refuses to let anything productive or modern within its limits. However projects that are doomed to fail are praised and eventually become empty eyesores. (The Heritage Center).
     
    There is a reason why 90% of the youth not only leave the city, but leave the county. It’s a desolate, depressing, poorly run area with no hope for any kind of future that doesn’t involve burger flipping or Wal-Mart greeting. Kids that do stay tend to, the majority of the time, get into the huge drug problems that exist. A drug problem that is one of the worst in the entire country. I’m sure the city of Calais could use the empty building to expand their widely successful Methadone Clinic.
     
    Please don’t confuse my bantering for blind hate, as I grew up in this town and eventually with determination and dedication, pulled away from its icy cold grasp. Those that live there will tell you the same thing and if they don’t, they are contributing to the city’s downfall by being naïve. These poor people have already lost more jobs than they can manage and this time it’s going to impact everybody in the community.
     
    Smarten up Calais! Find leaders and representatives that can see the truth and acknowledge your current position. Gather a voice and make the city council find ways to save this building and these jobs. Use this as a starting point to turning your city around. Save yourselves….

      Can you give one example of a “profitable project” that has been rejected by Calais?

      • Anonymous

        casino, pittson oil refinery, LNG terminal, grand  lake stream subdivision

          Casin0 – Calais has actively partnered with the Passamaquoddy tribe every time a proposed casino has come before the state.  The remainder of the state said no, not Calais.  In addition to active City support, the citizens of Calais have overwhelmingly supported a casino. LNG terminal – Calais actively supported both the concept and the specific developer in its attempt to bring a terminal to Calais.  Again, shot down by outside entities. Pitston, not pittson, oil refinery – proposed for EASTPORT – you realize that is a different city right?.  Grand Lake Stream subdivision –  that was proposed in GRAND LAKE STREAM – again a different town.   So, again, can you name ONE SINGLE profitable project that has been rejected by Calais?
