A new twist for the topless coffee shop

VASSALBORO, Maine (AP) - November 9, 2009

That's the new enterprise Maine businessman Donald Crabtree has in mind.

His topless coffee shop burned down in an arson fire in June.

Now, he wants to reopen in an office trailer.

The topless java joint upset many people in the small town of Vassalboro.

Crabtree tells a local paper (Kennebec Journal) he'll go before the planning board tomorrow to seek a new business permit.

He says his topless trailer would be a way to save money until he can move into a newer building.
