U.S. takes small step toward controlling unregulated commercial fishing
Summit Voice - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

The Obama administration last week took a small step toward addressing illegal fishing and widespread seafood fraud. A set of recommendations by a presidential task force includes creation of a “risk-based traceability program” to prevent illegal seafood products from reaching the supply chain.
Opinion: A healthy economy requires positive vision, not bitterness and blame
Bangor Daily News - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

In his Dec. 12 letter blaming “environmental zealots” for the demise of Great Northern Paper Co. Stu Kallgren forgot to mention important facts. First, it was mismanagement by corporate owners that brought down GNP, not concern over the Big A Dam. Second, most of the conservation organizations he listed were not even involved in the Big A Dam issue. Third, the forest industry has been and will be an important part of Maine’s economy, but it is shrinking. Fourth, tourism already has a larger impact on the Maine economy than forest products. Fifth, national parks are economic engines. Our state needs a coherent strategy to take advantage of global economic opportunities that taps into our special brand of quality of place. That includes positive action to protect the extraordinary natural values of the Maine woods. ~ Jym St. Pierre, RESTORE: The North Woods
Chinese, American companies fined $1.26 million for selling ‘dirty’ ATVs and motorcycles
Summit Voice - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

The Environmental Protection Agency has dinged two Texas companies and four manufacturers in China with $1.26 million in civil penalties after selling more than 11,000 motorcycles and ATVs that violated clean air rules. The companies will also be banned from selling 2015 vehicles in the U.S.
Women changing the face of dog sledding in Maine
Maine Sunday Telegram - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

For 22 years, the people of Fort Kent have rallied around the town’s sled-dog race, the longest in the eastern United States. They’ve stood along Main Street predawn to cheer the men who’ve won the Can-Am Crown 250. Now, some think a change is coming. An increase in competitive female mushers entering the 250-mile race gives locals reason to believe the next Can-Am winner could be a woman, maybe even a Mainer.
Column: At least the weasel knows whether it’s coming or going
Maine Sunday Telegram - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

I like to test outdoor folks’ nature knowledge by asking a question: How many weasel species do we have in Maine? The answer of seven often surprises even old codgers. We have long-tailed weasel, short-tailed weasel, mink, pine marten, fisher, otter and striped skunk. The first two are the only ones that turn white in winter. ~ Ken Allen
Column: Nonresident hunters worth the pursuit
Maine Sunday Telegram - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

From 2006 to 2011, the number of Maine hunting licenses bought by nonresidents dropped by 9,000. The decline caused a loss of $1.2 million in license fees for the state. A legislative task force examined this decline. The task force generated a list of recommendations that include greater collaboration between IFW and the Office of Tourism, analysis of nonresident hunter motivations, more marketing tools, strategies and training for Maine’s hunting industry partners, better hunting opportunities, and increased promotion of those opportunities. The future of Maine hunting and its contribution to the state’s economy depends on how effective we are at heading those recommendations. ~ Bob Humphrey
Column: Watching chickadees hoard is educational
Maine Sunday Telegram - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

If you watch a chickadee after it flies away with a seed, you can often see the bird perch and hammer the seed open. Sometimes it will eat the kernel, but at other times it will cache the kernel behind a scale of conifer bark, in a crevice, or among needle clusters of evergreens. Hoarding makes sense for resident birds because food supplies always vacillate. ~ Herb Wilson
Column: Maine suffers a dip-net loss with decreasing smelt yields
Maine Sunday Telegram - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

Those who have spent nights pursuing the fish over the past few years in Merrymeeting Bay know that the smelts just don’t seem to be there like they were in the past. The Maine Department of Marine Resources is working with other agencies to increase smelt habitat protection around streams, and reduce barriers for smelt spawning such as replacing undersized or overhanging culverts, and removing head-of-tide dams. Anglers can do their part by participating in DMR’s new recreational smelt logbook program. ~ Mark Latti
Column: Opportunities to enjoy Maine skiing are letter-perfect
Maine Sunday Telegram - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

On a recent quiet evening in front of a blazing fire after another wonderful early season day on the slopes, my mind began wandering to see if here in Maine, with our abundance of fabulous winter recreation opportunities, past and present, I could come up with a match for every letter in the alphabet. Here, with a little literary license, are the results of a most enjoyable journey through the alphabet, back in time and around Maine. ~ John Christie
Opinion: Environmental laws are not why paper industry is leaving
Maine Sunday Telegram - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

In the Dec. 14 column “Agree to Disagree: It’s time for a fresh start for the papermaking industry,” Phil Harriman and Ethan Strimling turn their attention to the decline of Maine’s paper industry. Mr. Harriman, the conservative, predictably blames Maine’s “ferocious” anti-business regulatory regime and “bloated union contracts” for the demise. Mr. Strimling, the liberal, writes that those environmental laws and regulations were necessary to reverse the pollution of our air and water that went unchecked for decades. The decline of Maine’s paper economy has very little to do with either Maine’s politics or its environmental laws. Beginning in the 1980s, Wall Street decided that the paper industry was no longer an attractive investment and mills began the slow downward spiral to non-competitive obsolescence. ~ Phil Coupe, Scarborough
Letter: Trahan’s column continues Question 1 falsehoods
Kennebec Journal - Sunday, December 21, 2014 

In his Dec. 4 column, “Lessons of the bear referendum from someone actually on the front lines,” David Trahan continues the falsehoods perpetrated by opponents of Question 1. His statement, “Complicated wildlife management decisions are best made by trained professionals” is a prime example. The No on 1 campaign was based largely on a “Trust our wildlife biologists” mantra. Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s biologists do not set wildlife management policy; politicians in the Legislature and in the Blaine House do. Maine’s system of fish and wildlife management is broken. ~ John Glowa, South China
Plum Creek CEO returns stock options
Maine Environmental News - Saturday, December 20, 2014 

Rick Holley, CEO of Plum Creek Timber Co., made headlines this week for revealing in a regulatory filing that he returned 44,445 restricted stock options to the company he runs because he didn’t think he deserved them. Plum Creek owns 865,000 acres of forest land in Maine.
Column: Without the three 'Ps', good luck bagging a deer
Sun Journal - Saturday, December 20, 2014 

The more I hunt deer the more I understand one thing: Most of the time in the deer woods, a hunter who practices the three "Ps" will, over the years, bag the most deer. Patience, perseverance and persistence, these makeup the deer hunter's critical triad. Without these, any successes that you have will be mostly a fluke or a stroke of good luck. ~ V. Paul Reynolds

2014: Another Year of Lyme Disease
Associated Press - Saturday, December 20, 2014 

Public health officials in northern New England say 2014 was another big year for Lyme disease in the region. Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention Director Sheila Pinette says the state is likely to exceed last year's record high of 1,384 cases of the illness.
Editorial: When trash has options: The Bangor area’s post-2018 waste landscape
Bangor Daily News - Saturday, December 20, 2014 

The question for 187 communities throughout Maine is, what do you want your trash to become? At the moment, the 180,000-or-so tons of solid waste those towns generate each year become electricity that Emera Maine delivers to its customers’ homes and businesses. But in the coming years, the Municipal Review Committee, the organization that represents the towns’ waste disposal interests, will push for the nonrecyclable waste from those towns to become a marketable fuel. As the Municipal Review Committee is counting on the Penobscot Energy Recovery Co. to shut down, PERC is preparing for the competition. Town officials and state regulators must be mindful of the complexities of this situation as they determine Maine’s trash future.
New EPA Standards Label Toxic Coal Ash Non-Hazardous
National Public Radio - Friday, December 19, 2014 

The Environmental Protection Agency has issued new national standards designating coal ash – a nearly ubiquitous byproduct of coal-fired power plants that contains arsenic and lead – as non-hazardous waste. NPR's Christopher Joyce reports that coal-fired power plants produce more than 130 million tons of the coal ash each year and they have long stored millions of tons of it in giant ponds. But many of those ponds have failed in recent years, allowing contaminated water to get into rivers and streams, and ultimately into drinking water.
Payson heirs fighting Cumberland’s beach plan
Portland Press Herald - Friday, December 19, 2014 

Cumberland now owns what is supposed to be its first public beach, but the former owners are trying to block the town’s controversial, voter-approved plan in court. A development company, 179 Foreside LLC, bought 104 acres of the Payson estate in Cumberland Foreside on Friday, then immediately sold 25 acres of prime woodland and Casco Bay waterfront to the town. Voters decided in November to borrow $3 million to finance the deal. Following contentious local campaigns, the vote was 2,372 to 2,126, or 53 percent in favor. Town officials hope to allow limited public access as early as Memorial Day, though the heirs of Marion Payson filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking to block public access to the beach.
Baxter State Park officials seek $10,000 from hiker to pay for search
Bangor Daily News - Friday, December 19, 2014 

In a rare move, the Baxter State Park will request that a hiker pay the $10,000 it cost to search for him earlier this month. Two men from Ontario, Canada, spent several days camping in Baxter State Park in early December but did not register, as is required. On Dec. 8, one of the men hiked back to a car, while the other man decided to climb Mount Katahdin alone, according to Jensen Bissell, the Baxter State Park director. Overnight campers must have reservations, while day-use hikers are required to sign in when they arrive at the park. When the hiker did not return from Katahdin that evening, a search was mounted on the morning of Dec. 9, as a storm approached. Bissell said, “But it’s really hard for me to put rescue crews at risk for people who didn’t even care to try to do the right thing.”
Editorial: Funding farms: New Maine credit union could help grow small-scale agriculture
Bangor Daily News - Friday, December 19, 2014 

Maine is seeing a resurgence of small-scale agriculture, especially among young farmers. But, difficulty accessing financial resources is preventing many of these entrepreneurs from expanding their operations and keeping others from farming altogether. So, the idea of a credit union for agricultural interests is welcome.
King, Pingree urge federal government to buy more Maine blueberries
Sun Journal - Friday, December 19, 2014 

U.S. Sen. Angus King and Maine's 1st District Congresswoman Chellie Pingree are urging the federal government to purchase more of their state's blueberry crop. The lawmakers have written to the U.S. Department of Agriculture asking the department to buy 18 million pounds of frozen Maine wild blueberries to use in school lunch and emergency food assistance programs.
Column: Musing on bird migration
Bangor Daily News - Friday, December 19, 2014 

Southern birds are moving north. But is this a sign of climate change? I often am asked whether we are seeing an effect on Maine birds because of global warming. It’s a complicated question, because many species routinely colonize new areas. We certainly are seeing birds now that we didn’t see in Maine half a century ago. For those of us who spend time in the woods, the change is obvious. Southern birds are increasing, northern birds are decreasing. Some of it is related to climate change; some of it isn’t. Change is a natural phenomenon — except when it isn’t. ~ Bob Duchesne
Who really has grassroots support? Wind energy
Other - Friday, December 19, 2014 

The Hill (DC) - A recent poll found that 73 percent of American voters support keeping the renewable energy Production Tax Credit “so that investment in wind energy can continue.” And 78 percent agreed it “helps American workers make more of our own energy right here in America.” Wide majorities of Republicans, Democrats and Independents agreed, consistent with previous polls. In the face of this widespread support, opponents such as the billionaire Koch brothers, who have significant financial interests in fossil fuels, have had to manufacture opposition. They have created a series of groups all with different names, but one common denominator: funding from the Koch brothers.
Gulf of Maine lobster forecast to give industry early warning
Portland Press Herald - Friday, December 19, 2014 

Scientists this spring will begin issuing weekly forecasts indicating when lobsters start to migrate from deep waters off the coast to state waters nearer shore where they are easier to catch. The forecasts, based on water temperatures, will help lobstermen and processors gear up for the 2015 fishing season. The announcement was made Thursday by scientists with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute at a conference in Portland hosted by the Island Institute for fishermen and marine researchers.
Opinion: Healthy lawns nurtured with synethetic fertilizers filter pollutants
Portland Press Herald - Friday, December 19, 2014 

Last month, Ogunquit voters passed a ballot initiative banning both homeowners and professionals from using synthetic fertilizers and pesticides on private property. Supporters of the measure have hailed its passage as a key step in respecting critical environmental systems and making the environment healthier for our families. While these supporters can be applauded for their goals, they have missed the mark. A healthy lawn stands second only to forest soil in its ability to capture and filter pollutants. While it seems counterintuitive, research clearly shows that adding the proper amount of fertilizer to a lawn at the right time helps minimize pollutants in our water supply. ~ Bob Mann, Lawn Dawg Inc., Nashua, NH

Irving Certification Valuation
Mitch Lansky, founder of the Maine Low-Impact Forestry Project and author of “Low-Impact Forestry: Forestry as if the Future Mattered,” recently submitted a paper called “Irving Certification Valuation” to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a global, multi-stakeholder forestry organization with a mission to "promote environmentally sound, socially beneficial and economically prosperous management of the world's forests." Certification by FSC of wood products, traced through chain of custody to "sustainable" forest practices, is required for many "green" building and paper programs. In the United States and Canada alone, FSC certifies nearly 173 million acres. Yet, says Lansky, J. D. Irving Ltd. – whose forestry practices in Maine are FSC certified – uses short rotations “that look suspiciously like plantations” rather than natural forests; uses more herbicides than all other forest landowners in Maine combined; is managing for stand structures that are vulnerable to spruce budworm; was cutting more than its forests were growing; and was not treating its contractors in socially responsible ways. Read and download Lansky’s in-depth analysis (Word document) at http://www.meepi.org/lif/Irvingrecertification.doc.

Researchers' recipe: Cook farm waste into energy
Source: University of Guelph - Researchers are studying how to make biofuels from farm waste, especially 'wet' waste, such as corn husks, tomato vines and manure, that is typically difficult to use. They have developed a fairly simple procedure, pressure cooking, to transport waste and produce energy from it. Cooking farm waste yields compact, easily transportable material that will not degrade and can be used in energy-producing plants, they say.

What Congress Doesn’t Want You To Know About Industrial Food Production
By Emily Cassidy - Some members of the U.S. Congress don’t want you to know how the food you eat strains natural resources. That’s the meaning of a statement attached to the omnibus federal spending bill Congress sent to President Obama last Saturday. The statement, crafted by the House and Senate appropriations committees, orders the Obama administration to make sure that the 2015 edition of the federal government’s “Dietary Guidelines for Americans” contains “only nutrition and dietary information, not extraneous factors.”

“Farming with Native Beneficial Insects” Means Solving for Pattern
By Adrian Ayres Fisher, Ecological Gardening - Our culture is awash in pink slime solutions. If you’ve seen "Food, Inc.," you’ll recognize this as "solving" the problem of E. coli in ground beef by concocting an ammonia-containing additive (pink slime) and then building large factories to incorporate it into the beef before it goes to the consumer. Other examples abound.
