Maine Storytelling

On July 26th WERU held our 3rd annual Maine storytelling event at the Alamo Theatre in Bucksport, as part of that town’s Wednesday on Main summer series. The theme this year was “My Maine: The State as Experienced by Local Storytellers”. Today we bring you Act 2 which featured Amy Roeder, John & Katie Greenman, Brook Ewing Minner and Naomi Graychase.

**The stories told by Brook Ewing Minner and Naomi Graychase were edited for length for the purposes of fitting into the Maine Currents time slot, but unedited versions of both of their stories are included here along with the archive of the Maine Currents show. The first file (below) is the complete show. The 2nd is Brook Ewing Minner’s unedited story and the 3rd is Naomi Graychase’s unedited story**

Segment 1: The public comment period has closed and now those who care about Maine’s new National Monument are waiting to hear its’ fate. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke visited Katahdin Woods and Waters recently as part of a federal review. While his comments after touring the area seemed to indicate that he was favorably impressed, they are open to interpretation at this point. Governor LePage has been a vocal opponent of the monument, downplaying the beauty and historical significance of the area, and any potential economic benefits for the region.
On Friday the Natural Resources Council of Maine held a press conference in Bangor to release the results of their analysis of the public comments that had been submitted so far, and to highlight the thoughts of some residents of the Katahdin Woods and Waters region. In our first segement today we’re going to listen in.
