"News & Issues" piece on a claim by Penobscot Bay fisherman who say spoils from dredging for a new pier at Mack Point in Searsport will disrupt one of the state's premier lobster fisheries if they are deposited in the designated area off Rockland. The Department of Transportation will now spend a couple of months analyzing what to do with the dredged material, which means the project will be delayed. The Mack Point project is an alternative to the Sears Island cargo port scuttled by Gov. Angus King in 1996, after nearly 20 years of state attempts to build on the island.
