The National Park Service has made a confidential offer to purchase a 900-acre parcel from the Saddleback ski area to protect the nearby Appalachian Trail. Saddleback owner Don Breen of Massachusetts, who has put the ski area up for sale, has not responded to the offer. Tom McAllister, manager of Saddleback, has offered to donate 330 acres to the NPS. McAllister sent a letter to members of Maine's congressional delegation criticizing the NPS. U.S. senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins have recommended accepting the 330-acre offer. Details.
