Maine state pier ideas

MAINE STATE PIER IDEAS
In response to "Saving A Sinking Waterfront," August 31):
1. Renovate the pier for heavy bus traffic to arrive at shipside as is done in every port in the Mediterranean.
2. Nothing on the surface except for loading and unloading.
3. If anything must go on the pier, go to Montreal and see what they have done with their waterfront:
a. IMAX theater for public relations, the tourists, et al.
b. Large venue for rock and other music concerts.
c. Places to shop for souvenirs.
d. Places to hear with a harbor and fishing-activities view.
e. Places to sit in the sun and under cover when raining.
f. Area for the immigrant children to fish.

  •   DIAMON MISREADS MICHAUD  |  November 20, 2013
    Having read Al Diamon’s expression of preference for Paul LePage’s policies — although not his temperament — I was not surprised to see his criticism of Mike Michaud (see “Where Were You When I Needed You?,” November 15). But I was disappointed by its tone.
  •   AN EXPERIENCER WRITES  |  September 26, 2013
    I think it’s great that your paper took the time to cover the topic of extraterrestrial abductions and the Experiencers Speak event (see “Taken Up,” September 6, by Deirdre Fulton). However, I think it also helped to encourage disinformation about the subject and ridicule those that have had such experiences.
  •   STAND UP AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE  |  July 18, 2013
    I encourage all Mainers to urge Senators King and Collins to support the Climate Change Action Plan.
