MPBN Takes a Look at the Pike Affair Through Colored Lenses

Maine Public Broadcasting Network:

Plans to expand a quarry in Westbrook have led to a
showdown between Pike Industries, the quarry's owner, and a coalition of
local businesses. It's a dispute which, according to some observers, has taken
on a symbolic significance--a conflict pitting blue collar against white collar,
old against new, hi-tech against low tech.
Wanted: An artist who can somehow create a palatable shade with globs of blue, white, green, brown, and whatever other collar-color that might exist.

- John C.L. Morgan
