Rural Maine has had a rough run in the time you’ve been here, as have many rural areas.

Yes, it has. I remember being being a bit shocked when it was announced 4 years ago that the Verso mill in Bucksport was going to close. I see that the site will be used to create a salmon farm in the near future.

Before it closed, I occasionally would stop outside the mill and watch the switching going on. Yes, I’m weird.

From time to time, we go up to Skowhegan and I check to make sure the SAPPI mill is still going. We also buy our shoes at the New Balance outlet in Skowhegan. Haven’t bought shoes anywhere else for years.
