    Producer/Host: Amy Browne
    Engineer: John Greenman

    The legalization of fireworks in Maine has been impacting everyone from farmers to people with PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder) and pitting neighbor against neighbor. Today we’ll hear some of those stories, and listen in on legislative committee hearings as they consider ways to address the issues- and then we open the phone lines for listener calls.

    But first.. We’re always looking for stories about ways communities are keeping power and control in local hands. Today’s story comes from Augusta, where residents have turned a mobile home community into a co-op, becoming the fourth resident-owned community in the state. Maine Cooperative Development Specialist and Director of RONA – the Residents Owned Neighborhood Association of Maine, Jessica Pooley, joins us to tell that story
