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
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."
