"News" piece on a joint venture between Pritham Singh, 48, a controversial Portland developer in the 1980s, and the Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) to protect Tinker Island in Blue Hill Bay. Singh and his wife, Ann Johnston, have bought the 200-acre southern half of Tinker, and the land trust has purchased the 230-acre northern half. Singh and Johnston have donated a conservation easement to MCHT on their entire property with two land use areas, one of which is 145 acres and will remain a natural area with no buildings. MCHT has asked the Land for Maine's Future Board to contribute $600,000 toward the $1,118,000 project cost. Singh, a major financial backer of Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, said it's possible there will be meditation retreats offered at Tinker in the future.
