> Western Maine Matters was formed, in 2007, by a group of concerned  
> citizens in response to a notice that the Massachusetts Air  
> National Guard wanted to lower its training altitude from 7,000 to  
> 500 feet over an area stretching from Coos County, New Hampsire,  
> across Oxford, Franklin and into Somerset County, in western Maine.
>
> Western Maine Matters recognizes that in rural western Maine, the  
> ecology of our scenic landscapes is the fundamental basis of our  
> economic life. Lowering a flight ceiling from 7,000 feet to 500  
> feet over air space where peace and quiet are our greatest  
> marketing tool represents significant loss for a region that  
> doesn't have anything else to market. It is only our remote  
> location, far enough from a tumultuous world sufficient to  
> contemplate and create, that draws a diverse population to this  
> rugged terrain.
>
> Those of us who call this region 'home' feel we deserve to be  
> treated with respect and dignity when our ability to survive  
> economically is in the balance.
