The September 20th Issue of The American
We’ve got an update on that auto-pedestrian fatality in Blue Hill and an explanation for that power outage that doused the lights and the computers in downtown Ellsworth Wednesday morning.
Also, an investigative piece on former Governor Angus King’s tax break program for businesses. Did it work? Was it worth it? Find out.
We also have a fascinating piece on a species of butterfly that really ought not to be here. What gives/Did you say “climate change”? Could be.
We also get to toot our own horn over a national award our Editorial Pages just received. (We buried that one on Page 4.)
All this plus high school soccer and volleyball, an Oktoberfest preview full of bratwurst and beer, a sad farewell to two beloved Blue Hill town officials, the visit by the HMS Bounty to Castine, and the latest on the movement to withdraw from Regional School Unit 24.
