Damariscotta Adult Entertainment Is… Is… I Think I Just Threw Up In My Mouth A Little

burlesque costumeThe Damariscotta Board of Selectmen unanimously approved a draft adult entertainment moratorium ordinance Wednesday, Sept. 3 and scheduled a townwide vote for Wednesday, Sept. 17. The ordinance would temporarily prohibit adult entertainment establishments, which include adult book stores, novelty stores, spas, theaters, and video stores, as well as escort agencies, strip clubs, and other businesses. The establishment of such businesses “could pose serious threats to the public health, safety, and welfare of the residents of Damariscotta” without regulation, according to the ordinance. The ordinance cites evidence that such establishments have negative effects on the surrounding areas, such as “perceived” decreases in property value, and that they “facilitate illicit and undesirable and, in some cases, criminal activities …” Adult entertainment establishments “can often be incompatible” with surrounding uses, particularly when in close proximity to day cares, homes, houses of worship, parks, schools, and similar areas, according to the draft ordinance.

I Told You Not To Get Him Another Tie

Bridge. Maine news from The Rumford MeteorPROSPECT — Maine State Police officials talked a suicidal man out of jumping off the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Sunday afternoon. The 43-year-old Hancock County resident, whom police did not name, climbed over the safety railing at about 12:45 p.m., according to Sgt. Pat Hood of the Maine State Police. Trooper Jon Leach, who was off-duty, saw the man on the other side of the safety rail. He stopped his vehicle and called for backup, and Hood and Trooper Desiree Wuthenow arrived to help. Together, the trio spent 20 minutes talking to the man, who told them that he wanted to die. “It was a combination of life events led him to the point that day,” Hood said Monday. “I think it was years of stuff basically coming to a head. The significance of Father’s Day probably didn’t help any, either.” The man told them he was a father, Hood said. (read more at Lewiston Sun Journal)

Maine Woman Says She Suspects Many Men In The Military Might Be Aggressive And Pushy, And She Fears Many Of Them Might Have Access To Guns

Saco StandoffSACO — A man who was recently separated from his wife caused a 4½-hour standoff with police that ended Saturday night when he apparently set their house on fire and died inside, police said.
