"News & Issues" piece on the proposed construction of a motorized access to the Allagash Wilderness Waterway at John's Bridge. Opponents are pressing questions of potential federal violations to the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. And Ken Olson of Bass Harbor, former president of American Rivers in Washington, is asking for an investigation by the governor's office of the state agencies involved and postponement of the decision on the project. The Allagash was the first "wild" river in the U.S. Wild and Scenic system. Only 17 other rivers are so classified. The federal designation established a national interest in the waterway along with that of the state, and both governments financed it. Also with mention of other Allagash issues that are heating up as debate of federal involvement is introduced.
