As a resident of Harpswell I have seen a lot of bickering going on between one person or another for a multitude of reasons. The residents of this seaside town seem to have an inability to get together to reach any kind of a consensus on many issues. This time, Mr. McIntyre and his posse have decided that the closure of the West Harpswell School is yet another issue to create tension and division.

I agree with Mr. Wilhelm that SAD 75 has no obligation in any way, shape or form to feel it necessary to include the opposing group’s viewpoints in their publication. I might suggest that Mr. McIntyre help pay for signs similar to the ones that currently litter the Route 123 side of Harpswell, and post ones on the Route 24 side stating that Harpswell needs one school.
