Tidbits

The Camden ethos is preserved. Dunkin' Donuts has been scared away from downtown.

Maine has passed legislation to control the mercury in compact fluorescent lightbulbs. Manufacturers must reduce the amount of mercury and pay for safe recycling.

The Maine House of Representatives has voted to downsize itself, from 151 to 131 reps. How to safely recycle ex-politicians?

General Motors will sell Hummer to Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co. of China. Heavy!

Man camps in VW Jetta (a Hummer would have come in handy) for five days in order to be first in line for a clamming license in Friendship. He got it.

It was a good news week in Maine.
