The April 24th Issue of the Islander

Mount Desert Island is heading into town meeting time – that special time of year where folks can stop complaining and actually do something about the issues they care most about. What's on the warrant in your town? We'll tell you.

The field of candidates for local elective office in most communities is strong, including in Southwest Harbor where four people, including two incumbents, are seeking a pair of seats on the board of selectmen. Find out what each of the candidates had to say about their town's future in this week's paper.

It may not exactly be a phoenix but the owners of Capt'n Nemo's Restaurant in Tremont, which was destroyed by fire last December, have applied to rebuild.

Meanwhile, selectmen in that town are skipping to the portable loo for lack of a number two.

Over in Bar Harbor, the increasingly shrill tone of politics claimed another victim this week with long-time town clerk Pat Gray announcing plans to retire. The case of fired police chief Nate Young also advanced this week with the town's lawyers filing responses to his lawsuit alleging bias on the town council's part.

Governor Paul LePage has stepped in with cash to give a boost to a Bar Harbor group hoping to convert a former parish house into a home for developmentally challenged adults. Find out too who will be doing all the heavy lifting when it comes to fine tuning elver fishing regulations in Maine.

Speaking about heavy lifting, one Bar Harbor man, a veteran of three expeditions to climb Mount Everest, shares his affection for the hard-working Sherpas who make such adventures possible. He reflects on their contributions in the wake of a tragic avalanche last week that killed more than a dozen people.

Read about the latest in MDI High School Trojan sports, maritime news and a chance to find out more about a movie featuring Jeff Bridges, famous for his role as "The Dude," talk about food insecurity in the United States. Hear what Maine's Poet Laureate had to say on a recent visit and find out why a man from Scotland is desperately seeking a Susan in Mount Desert.

All that, along with money-saving ads, police news, and more, in this week's issue.

The Mount Desert Islander is located at 310 Main Street in Bar Harbor, Maine.  For more information please contact us at (207) 288-0556 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
