Not worried about NECEC

Share or Comment

To the Editor;
When I hear people complain about the Central Maine Power right of way that is being considered, it makes me think about how people must have felt when they saw the first telephone poles going up.

What words of horror were spoken when the first television antennas were erected on roofs? Were there any screams of headaches? I don’t think so. How about the existing power lines? We have several where I live and all I hear about them is how hunters like to walk them during hunting season.

I am not taking a position on this new CMP proposal of right of way, because I will leave that to those familiar with this subject. I seem to be doing OK with the telephone poles, TV antennas and power lines. No need to pass the Excedrin this way.
