Citations issued in Maine

The Mine Safety and Health Administration tells the Bangor

Daily News it has issued citations to quarry owner John Goodwin Jr. and David Eastman, owner of Northern Drilling and Blasting, for failing to provide ample warning to neighbors before the Nov. 17 blast at a quarry in Tremont on Mount Desert Island.
