As the public awaits the outcome of intense debate over the future of the Allaga
As the public awaits the outcome of intense debate over the future of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, the future of the waterway is further clouded by two allegations of sex discrimination against Tim Caverly, the waterway supervisor. On June 3, the Maine Human Rights Commission found "reasonable grounds" for a sex discrimination finding against the Maine Conservation Commission, which over sees waterway staff and operations. The case involved Hilda Nadeau, who had sought a job as park receptionist at Michaud Farm. The Human Rights Commission might decide a similar case at its Sept. 28 mmeting, involving Kim Lynch, the only woman ranger on the waterway, who claims sex discrimination because Caverly did not provide her with proper equipment and for saying she was incapable of carrying out ther duties.
