On the cover this week, a proposed 300-foot private recreational pier that would be the first of its kind on a stretch of Lincolnville coastline and potentially the largest in the region has neighbors and others questioning how far waterfront property owner’s rights extend into the water.

Inside, Becca Shaw Glaser continues her reviews of local dumps, this week rating the picking, sortings and “swap shops” at Camden-Rockport’s Midcoast Solid Waste and the St. George Transfer Station.
