bulletMoving Up-Island - Don Tarbet


A Maine author tells a story of kidnapping, fraud and maybe more in a Maine coastal resort community

Communist spies have been out of fashion since the Berlin wall came down, but, like Elvis, they are good for the occasional resurrection. And this spy was spectacular and violently insane. Or was he? Was he even a spy? Whatever he was, the tabloids loved him. But, what happened to him?
And what happened to newlywed, newly rich Lauri Hoxley?
Why was a newlywed having an affair?
What happened to 52 million dollars?
What happened to the security goon?
And why did it all happen?

bulletPrints of Darkness: The Rise of the Digital Police State

A book on official invasion of personal privacy by Bernard Huebner who writes:

Prints is the history ... of the entire school fingerprinting episode 
in Maine.  It covers everything from the law's inception way back in 1995 up through 
Governor's Baldacci's turncoat veto of the Legislature's third bill in four years 
attempting to change the law.  It also includes the missing data that we all sought, except 
it is not from Maine, but from Missouri, a state with a similar law but no restriction on 
release of the results of their background checks.  The folks in the Legal Office of 
Missouri's Education Department were gracious enough to review all their results from 
1998-2003 for me and answer the crucial question we kept asking: how many school employees 
were discovered to have prior out-of-state convictions for sexual abuse of a child?  I won't 
spoil it for you, but it's a shocker; it's in the Epilogue, fittingly.
