Public Transportation in Maine? It's up to -- the public: ALL OF US!

Let's all step up to do what it takes to reduce our carbon impact -- and the traffic to the Fair.

There are many options to make that happen -- including, this year, buses from across the state.

See this link for a host of information links to assist all of us in our shared travel to Unity; see this link for Facebook-based updates. 

Let's commit to developing workable public transportation in Maine...for the Common Ground Fair -- and beyond!!

See this link for more information about the 2016 Common Ground Country Fair.

Say "No!" to Destructive Mining -- AGAIN!


For the THIRD TIME, forces intent on negating the will of the people and ignoring the risk to public health are maneuvering to bring toxic mining to Maine. 

Opposition remains strong; see this story about the September 15 Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) hearing. 


Please contact the BEP immediately; the deadline for public comment is Monday, September 26

Here's some links to assist you in your effort:
