“Maine Times still kicking,” ran a hed in E&P in late 1999. Not anymore.
Started in 1968 as an environmentally focused statewide alternative weekly, Maine Times ceased publication last week. The paper had been through numerous owners in recent years, and circulation had dipped from a high of 18,000 in 1988 to “about 4,000 subscribers and ‘a couple of thousand’ newsstand sales,” according to the Portland Press Herald.
