"The Talk of the Turnpike" piece on the proposed widening the Maine Turnpike, noting that the turnpike is a lightning rod of a basic debate among differing views of Maine's future. Everett "Brownie" Carson, longtime executive director of the Natural Resources Council of Maine, said many people think that the turnpike is as wide as it should be if Maine's special qualities are to be protected. State senator Jeffrey Butland, R-Cumberland, counters that Maine is going to be developed whether the turnpike is widened or not, and that safety concerns warrant widening. Dan Paradee, Maine Turnpike Authority spokesman, says the authority is caught in the middle. Butland has authored a bill to put the widening question back before voters.
