A bill that would require ships transferring fuel in Maine waters to use protective devices meant to block the spread of oil in the case of a spill is likely dead.

Gay pride, Confederate battle flags displayed at Maine high schools

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:51:30 GMT

Flags, designed to serve as easily recognizable symbols of ideas or entities, are meant to be noticed, but two flags generally perceived to be at opposite ends of the political spectrum drew a lot of attention when they were flown outside Maine high schools earlier this month. The attention the flags received may have exceeded the aspirations of the people who raised them, however.

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:27:23 GMT

A state lawmaker sponsoring a bill calling for a board to oversee the public advocate's office says the move would deliver more balanced guidance and was not the result of the utility headed by his son having conflicts with the advocate's office. Republican Rep. Roger Sherman said he is sponsoring the bill because he's not always "sure" of decisions made by Public Advocate Timothy Schneider, who supports ratepayers before state, regional and federal regulators.
