    Send their trash up this way and make a park up here that no one wants. We don’t want their trash, their park or their Cynthia Dill. Keep all your trash in Southern Maine and I mean all of it.

    Naw, I don’t think that’s a good idea.  Maybe it really is time to split the state and they can keep all of their trash.  Heck they get all the money, they should be able to process their garbage too.  Funny how all of a sudden Augusta recognizes that there is a northern Maine.

    90% of the population of Maine lives in the southern 10% of the state. We do not have the political clout to stop this.

      Well then lets make us the 51st state. I would say the line should be drawn near the same line that was cut across the state for that worst idea we have ever had…. a toll highway for Canadian traffic. That is the lamest idea, so lets take that and make it the best idea for us northerns.

    Reduce
    Reuse
    Recycle.

    I’m for the new idea that we send our northern and southern counties garbage in a brand new landfill… Cape Elizabeth,Cynthia Dill’s backyard! Where our states wonderful award-winning civil rights lawyer resides.  
     
    It would have my vote.
