One vote in favor of the word Katahdin

To the Editor;
Just read the article about dropping the Mount from the name Katahdin. Makes perfect sense when you learn what the word means, many words have a meaning derived from early civilizations, cultures and nationalities. As a native of Millinocket, I stopped using the word Mount at an early age when I learned the native meaning from my grandparents, some of the earliest 1900s Millinocket settlers.

You will note my use of the word Katahdin on packaging (for the Katahdin Sweet Peaks project. Feel free to use me as a supporter of the cause. Incidentally, it looks like my Peaks chocolate treat may have a home with Friends of Baxter State Park for fundraising purposes. Stay tuned for more on this subject.
