One Word Causes Commotion in Stockton Springs 

One word has caused quite a bit of commotion in Stockton Springs.A lane on a dead end road has been called Squaw Point Road for decades.But Maine banned the word squa from place names in 2000 because it’s offensive to Native Americans.Stockton Springs Town Manager says residents then started playing a game of scrabble with the spelling of the road.But this month Maine lawmakers amended the law to ban any public place names that include any sort of derivation of squa.The private lane is now called Defence Point Road.
