"Feature Story" piece on the battle over gravel pits in Waterboro. Last month a special town meeting was called to legalize the town's gravel pit, which had been operating outside the law since 1983. But four days after the meeting, someone vandalized a front -end loader owned by Douglas C. Foglio, Inc., by driving it into a pond. The damage was estimated at $25,000. Vandals struck again last week, spray painting graffiti on a front-end loader owned by Leighton Excavation. Part of the town's heritage is hosting 15 active gravel pits. But a group called Concerned Citizens for Responsible Government, which is led by Eric and Diane Herrle, want to change that. The Herrles have been particularly critical of the town's casual approach to bringing old pits up to modern standards, including a phased in reclamation plan, and the posting of a performance bond.
