1.  EVENTS
A.  COHEN ENERGY FORUM
   A few seats are still available for the Energy Forum!  "The Promise of Energy Independence -- Examining national policy and regional action," William S. Cohen Papers Forum, Wednesday, October 5, 2005, 10 am to 3:30 pm, Buchanan Alumni House, The University of Maine.  To register contact Paige Lilly at 581-2665 or e-mail paige.lilly@umit.maine.edu

    Energy policy continues to confound us as it did in the 1970s when Representative Bill Cohen began promoting energy conservation and alternative fuels research in order to reduce dependence on foreign oil. Now, thirty years later, what compromises are needed to fuel the future and gain energy security for Maine and the nation? Our distinguished speakers will share their knowledge and lead a discussion of issues such as reliable energy, biomass conversion, and LNG terminal siting. Please plan to join us for the second in a series of provocative discussions based on topics in the Cohen Papers.  See the following website for further information: http://www.library.umaine.edu/cohen/forum.htm
