The residents in Millinocket are firmly against Quimby's idea because they fear government intrusion would outweigh any benefits, Conlogue said.

Maine has a long tradition of private ownership of the state's vast North Woods, a wilderness that's been managed as a "working forest" with logging operations that serve the state's paper mills. Traditionally, the vast acreage was made available to hunters, trappers, snowmobilers and ATV operators.
