The photo on the left may not be the Teddy Roosevelt you know - it was taken when he was young. The image on the right is one of John Hancock.

 

What many do not know is that young Roosevelt visited Maine on several occasions and there is a state historic marker in Island Falls that memorializes his visits. It's called Bible Point. And Island Falls is every bit as beautiful as the name suggests. Roosevelt took his Bible with him and prayed daily in this most fitting location.

 

What even fewer Mainers know is that this area is now under assault from the wind industry that has twisted the laws of our great country so that they need not work creatively and hard to create real value to earn a profit, but rather simply grow sickeningly rich by putting their hands in our pockets, having mangled the laws of our land to allow it. 

 

I believe Roosevelt the great outdoorsman, conservationist, patriot and President would not approve of how his revered location or his country's constitution is being mangled by today's marauders armed with lawyers and lobbyists.

 

John Hancock was a patriot whose name has of course become synonymous with a signature, because of his legible and beautiful signature on the Declaration of Independence.

 

It is said that Democracy is not a spectator sport. We must always stay vigilant active in protecting our constitution and country. And our countryside. Today, Teddy Roosevelt needs your John Hancock. 

 

Please take one minute and exercise your freedom, won and protected by those who have gone before us, and sign the online petition to protect our fellow Mainers and fellow Americans in the magical place called Teddy Roosevelt's Island Falls.

Inscribed on the plaque at Bible Point :

 

"This place, to which a great man in
his youth liked to come to commune
with God and with the wonder and
beauty of the visible world, is
dedicated to the happy memory of
THEODORE ROOSEVELT
Stranger, rest here and consider
what one man, having faith in the
right and love for his fellow man
was able to do for his country."

Comment by Donna Amrita Davidge on November 17, 2011 at 3:08pm

thank you so much all..not only the families that enjoy the area and have for generations but I, as a Sewall who bought this home where TR visited and wrote about in his letter "My indebtedness to Maine." Mainers are so often simple and kind, they don't know how to fight these big businesses they usually avoid by not living in the big cities. This is a CHOICE..like Mike Gosselin who chose to move Mars Hill..my great grandfather loved these woods, my Aunt Nancy Sewall Cunningham, who kept the Sewall legacy alive, loved the lake and the nature- the birds and the wild flowers.  it is too incredible this is happening to ANY of the good simple nature loving people of Maine. Thank you Long Islander for fighting for your cause, our cause.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
