Forbes publishes what most Maine business owners already know, it's tough to be in business in Maine. The climate and regulation are horrendous for doing business, no wonder youngsters leave in droves. Wake up Augusta.
Who is advising this man? For goodness sake he's not running for WWF, he's supposed to be running for governor. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it does not mean it should be publicly spoken, civility should be the rule. I have strongly considered voting for LePage, the antics of the past two weeks have not impressed me that he is anyway qualified to be in a top political position.
It's always police brutality when these brats don't behave properly, 250-300 "kids" is a mob, I'm sure there was a "don't tell me what to do" attitude.
Seems like a bad idea for the "undercover" guys to have their pictures in the paper. But then, maybe the "hookers" and "pimps" don't read the paper.
Mr. Nichols is right, there are other places that are very substandard, which code enforcement officers say they can't do anything about. How about a run down trailer with added on shacks, a wood stove and no electricity on the Fayette Road, just around the corner from this place, or a camper on cement blocks set up as a permanent home on a neighbors' lawn. The officials have been shirking their duties for too long.
Redneck pasties? Why not duct tape...........just askin'?
The reason the guys name is mentioned is because he is the assailant, duh! The system protects the victim as much as it can by with holding their name. (Prominance or friendship has nothing to do with it).
How encouraging to hear of a student who actually appreciates the opportunity to learn and give back to society. I have recently read "Three Cups of Tea" and "Stones into Schools", by Greg Mortenson, American students are so privileged, they should be as thankful as this young man to have the gift of a free education.
I'd say the police were very lucky, this out of control woman could have killed them. She still should have been in jail on domestic violence charges, if she were a man would she be let loose with no time served? These crazy substance abusers need to be helped somehow, they are a drain on society.
