It was announced last week that the Yarmounth, Maine company DeLorme, who has been publishing the oversized Maine Atlas since 1976; will be sold to Swiss GPS company Garmin.

Bangor Daily News contributor Troy Bennett has written an ode to the famous co-pilot map, to remember the meaning behind why some traditions shouldn't be messed with here in Maine.
