    Once upon a time, about everybody in Maine was working. On a week-day in the winter kids could slide on secondary roads, there was not much traffic, everybody was working. Women would keep the one car on payday to do the shopping. From Kittery to Fort Kent, mills were producing all kinds of products and wealth. Once Sandy Point, Maine, supplied much of the world with fertilizer. It for the most part is all gone, just a ghost of the past here and there, We were far better off then, the global economy, and being the tailpipe of the mid-west power plants, and the eternal shame of our citizens doing drugs, and the influx of rich retirees has put Maine in a second class figure of what was once first class.

    If Lewiston Council cannot hear these folks, they need to be woken up!

    Adaptive reuse is the future. The bedspread and shoe factories are gone, get over it.

    Question is: what will we do next? These folks are adressing that question, let’s listen to them, critique their ideas, improve on them together, collectively. But do let’s stop whining about the past.

    Things change.

    The only thing wholly in your power is your own reaction to that change.

    So– what are YOU gonna do?

    More power to the forward-lookers.
