Not rude. They just held their info close to the vest, even with people they knew well.
If you were not born in Maine then you are "from away". Some Mainers will set that standard a couple of generations back. In much of the state there is no way to become a true Mainer. You either are or you are "from away".

I was hoping she might use it to investigate further but got a somewhat defensive reply.
That is typical of reporters. If you are not a major advertiser with the paper the only way to get through to them that they were wrong about something is either through a lawyer or through their editor. Good luck succeeding with either one of those though.
