"News & Issues" piece on Allagash Wilderness Waterway manager Tim Caverly, who has been fired, effective June 10. In the summer of 1996, three female waterway employees complained to Conservation Commissioner Ron Lovaglio of sex discrimination against them by Caverly. But the charges didn't become public until April 1998 when Kim Allen, the only full-time woman ranger in the Allagash, filed a complaint with the Maine Human Rights Commissioner that was later upheld. The commission also found grounds to supports claims by Hilda Nadeau. But Caverly has publicly disagreed with superiors. Jeff Ruch, executive director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility in Washington, sees Caverly's dismissal as a classic case of bureaucratic harassment of an employee advocating for wilderness values that are politically out of favor. Caverly, who has held his current post since 1981, has denied the charges and said he will fight them through the Maine State Employees Association.
