LEWISTON — Mayor Larry Raymond's comments and letter in October 2002 kicked off a firestorm of controversy, putting Lewiston and its influx of new immigrants on newspapers and TV screens around the world.
Ten years later and comments by Mayor Robert Macdonald have ignited a similar, but smaller, controversy.

The live video chat is scheduled for noon Monday, Oct. 8. It will be shown live on sunjournal.com, with a live chat via Coveritlive.com. Log on to discuss the topic and ask questions.
