Town officials in Wells last week announced that they would reopen the town clam
Town officials in Wells last week announced that they would reopen the town clam flats, closed for nine years due to pollution. Resident permits will sell for $15 each, while nonresident permits will go for $30. Brad Perkins' seventh-grade civics class in Sanford is working with state representative Ernest Greenlaw to introduce LD 1763, which would ban the division of clam licenses into resident and nonresident categories. Perkins' class is arguing that if the public has fishing rights below the high tide line, the clams should be considered the property of all citizens of the state. Details.
