New complaints of sex discrimination and harassment in the Allagash Wilderness W
New complaints of sex discrimination and harassment in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway and a controversial restoration of the historic log tramway there depict a continuing and deepening problem within the Department of Conservation. Commissioner Ron Lovaglio confirmed that ranger Kim Allen is filing new charges alleging harassment by waterway manager Tim Caverly, and former seasonal ranger Marily Daily has also lodged a sex discrimination complaint. Charges filed against Caverly by Allen last year were upheld by the Maine Human Rights Commission. Lovaglio also acknowledged that an investigation is under way to determine whether Caverly mismanaged funds for restoration of the historic tramway that once conveyed logs from Eagle to Chamberlain. State representative John Martin, D-Eagle Lake, has filed two legislative bills aimed at getting rid of Caverly, who has been overseer of the Allagash for 18 years.
