Abstract

Article on the debate over the proposed Fairwinds liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Harpswell, and the split it has caused among residents. The project could generate $8 million a year in lease payments to the town, more than the total tax revenues for 2002. Bob Anderson, editor of the "Harpswell Anchor," says that said that opinions over the LNG terminal are split along geographic, not economic, lines. Most of the opposition has come from neighboring residents who fear renewed industrial activity in their backyards. The project faces a public vote in January. With comments by Thomas "Spike" Haible, executive director of the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust; Robert Woodbury, local homeowner and former University of Maine System chancellor; and John Dennen, a local lobsterman.
