School budget passes first test, quietly By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer 32 minutes One comment about whether school officials could have cut deeper to lighten the burden on taxpayers, especially those on fixed incomes and struggling due to a bad economy. $27,928,764 to be spent on local education. Add money to keep

schools open for community activities, subsidize the food service program and pay for adult education programming and the final tally reaches $28.5 million. In a nutshell, a crowd of under 100 people Monday night passed the proposed SAD 61 budget for the 2013– 14. Now, the final seal of approval or disapproval

occurs on Tuesday, May 21 when area voters head to the polls to cast a “Yes” or “No” as part of the validation referendum. Unlike past referendum votes, this year’s ballot will carry a second question — whether taxpayers wish to continue the present format of the district budget meeting followed by a validation (“secret ballot”) vote, over

the next three years. Taxpayers can reject the present format and shift to simply a district budget meeting, where warrant articles will be voted upon. Many support the referendum vote because it allows taxpayers to cast their ballot in their hometowns and do it in secrecy. On Monday night, some initial article votes were conducted by a show

of hands. The result was two, three or five “no” votes. Two articles — #15 regarding additional local funds and #16 regarding community use of facilities — required “written” ballots. While the articles passed, the margins were 68–18 and 66–20. SAD 61 Superintendent of Schools Kathleen Beecher noted that if voters did switch to using just a district budget

meeting, they could request that all articles be decided by written ballot. Cost associated with the two-part system is over $2,000 — mainly the price of printing ballots. Two years ago when voters rejected the budget three times, cost of holding the votes totaled $5,600. Last year, the cost was $3,700. BUDGET, Page A

Groups respond to Agenda 21 By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer (Editor’s note: The Bridgton News asked the executive directors of two of the Lake Region’s leading nonprofit environmental organizations to respond to last week’s article reporting on a talk given by Dr. Michael Coffman, saying the United Nation’s Agenda 21 action plan for sustainable living on the planet is now being carried out at the local level to erode personal property rights in America. Here’s what they had to say.) Peter Lowell, Lakes Environmental Association In his 41 years as LEA’s executive director, Lowell had never heard of Agenda 21 until last year, when Coffman spoke at the Magic Lantern Theater in Bridgton. He left before the talk was over, not as any kind of protest statement, he said, but simply because he didn’t see any relevance to the educational and conservation mission of LEA.

“I’ve been part of maybe 15 or 16 different land transactions” involving LEA, including acquisition of Holt Pond and Pondicherry Park in Bridgton, said Lowell, “and in each case, they were all willing sellers.” Lowell said the landowners “were, in fact, anxious to support the project, and either donated the land or sold it at well below market value” because they recognized the “enormous public benefit” to the region’s educational, recreational and economic development.” LEA, like Loon Echo Land Trust and other land conservation organizations, is authorized to pay fair market value for land deemed to have significant public benefit. And public access on those acquired lands is always encouraged, SHERIFF WAYNE GALLANT explains how the Oxford POLICE CHIEF PHIL WEYMOUTH told taxpayers at a County Sheriff’s Office would cover the Town of Fryeburg public hearing last week that a switch to county coverage not discouraged. would result in losing local control.

Exploring their options Fryeburg: Local control vs. county

By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer FRYEBURG — Keep it or disband? Chief Philip Weymouth sees the question of whether residents wish to keep the Fryeburg Police Department as a matter of “local control.” Oxford County Sheriff Wayne Gallant believes his agency can meet the needs of the Town of Fryeburg and bring some resources that the current department may be lacking. Both leaders told residents last Thursday, during a public hearing held at the fire station, that they hold the “utmost respect” for each other’s departments. They did not consider themselves “adversaries.” Instead, Chief Weymouth and Sheriff Gallant simply put forth what their depart-

ments could offer residents in the form of law enforcement, at what cost, and ultimately to allow taxpayers decide which direction they wanted to pursue. The question whether to keep the local police department or disband it in favor of contracting with the Oxford County Sheriff’s Department was spurred by a citizens’ petition, Fryeburg Board of Selectmen Chairman Richard Eastman told the crowd that filled the fire station. “Over the past year, we have heard repeatedly from a group of citizens who are unhappy with the Fryeburg Police Department. This group has called into question both the policies and the conduct of our police department,” according to a fact sheet, entitled “Why We Are Here,” which was

Rapid Renewal

HARRISON — The town of Harrison is now offering online boat registrations as part of plans to make Town Office functions more accessible to residents. New Town Clerk Melissa St. John has linked the town office up with the state of Maine Rapid Renewal online registration service, whereby residents can renew their annual registration for their vehicles, trailers and boats. She is also planning improvements to the town’s website. “Lots of exciting changes are happening in the clerk’s office. While many of them are happening behind the scenes, some of them will be more apparent over the next few months,” she said in a recent e-mail to subscribers of the weekly update sent out by Town Manager George “Bud” Finch. With an e-mail address, a vehicle’s plate type and number, residents can now visit the town of Harrison’s website and click on “Rapid Renewal” from the list on the left-hand side. Or, they can visit the site directly, accessible through The system also allows residents to receive e-mail reminders a month ahead of time that their registrations are due. The same process applies to boat registrations, with the website

made available at the public hearing.“ Not satisfied with the outcome of the administration-initiated investigations, they launched a petition drive calling for the disbanding of the Fryeburg Police Department. This culminated on April 15 when their petition was submitted to the town for consideration.” There were 215 signatures on 22 petitions; 179 valid registered voters; 33 non-registered voters; and 3 duplicate signatures. Since the petition had the required 130 valid signatures, by state law, selectmen included the citizens’ initiative on the June 11 town meeting warrant. At no point during the evening did someone stand up and explain why the petition had been circulated FPD, Page A

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO – The spring day brimmed with perfection. The sunshine had wiped away a morning fog. The trees were lively with the bristling of birds. Lockets of purple flowers sprouted from a mossy carpet. It was flawless — except for the five oil drums sitting above the brook, which is a tributary to Crooked River, which supplies water to Sebago Lake. Additionally, the metal and plastic drums were about 25

feet from the property’s drinking water well. Around noon on Tuesday, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) coordinated the removal of seven oil drums from a foreclosed property on State Park Road. According to Oil and Hazardous Materials Specialist Stephen Brezinski, the majority of the drums contained motor oil. Brezinski explained he had been told that the former OIL DRUMS, Page A

Manager: ‘Stop this insanity’ By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Forcing SAD 61 taxpayers to pay 100% of teachers’ retirement pensions is like adding insult to injury, and it has got to stop. That’s the essence of the message in a letter to Maine House and Senate members drafted by Bridgton Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz, authorized by the Bridgton Board of Selectmen. Berkowitz said SAD 61’s per-pupil transportation costs “far exceed” urban and metro areas, due to the district’s large geographic area. “When this formula is used to determine prior year essential program and services support, once again we came up short and had to make up the difference at the expense of our local taxpayers,” Berkowitz wrote. “Added to this insult, the decision to require the state’s share of the Teacher Retirement System, our M.S.A.D. had to absorb 100% of this cost, or over $357,000 — while we see the urban and metro regions faring far better, with shares below 60%.” The impact is forcing Bridgton to raise the local tax rate by at least 56 cents per $1,000 of valuation, “which represents a minimum increase of 4% — before we attempt to meet our local (budget) requirements for FY 2014,”

he said. SAD 61 has an average per-pupil cost of $10,000 per student, “and we have at least nine students who may opt to transfer to a charter school, for which we will become 100% responsible,” said Berkowitz. That’s $90,000 that will leave Bridgton, “leaving fewer dollars for the very academics which are the key to our local economy and an individual’s success in their later life.” The inequity of it all is absolutely “unfathomable,” said Berkowitz, in light of the district’s status as having one of the highest percentages of students in the state who qualify for free and reduced lunches. All totaled, what the state is doing is transferring its own tax burden to local taxpayers, he said — which is nothing more than “a slap in the face to our citizens and their future.” Berkowitz called on lawmakers to “bring both aisles together to cease the efforts of the tax and burden shift, and preserve the integrity of the past relationships between the municipalities, education community and the state. “As we have heard from many of our citizens, the best way we can describe their feelings is by asking you to STOP THIS INSANITY,” he wrote. Then he closed by saying, “We hope that you are listening.”

However, she quickly moved to our labor and delivery area where she worked for many years,” Rollins said. “She has taken on roles that have included ambulatory surgery, emergency services, supervision and urgent care. In addition, she worked fulltime at Bridgton Obstetrics and Gynecology. This past February, Nicki took on her

most recent role as the ED clinical coordinator. She continues to develop her skills not only clinically but within a leadership role.” Rollins added, “Nicki is well known and respected for her skills and knowledge of nursing practice and her ability to remain the voice of reason in all circumstances. She has a keen ability to critically think in the most chaotic of situations. While all of these

Piecing together Naples budget By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — Planning a budget has a few obvious steps. First, plug in all the reliable revenue. Then, estimate — or don’t count on — the questionable revenue. Next, set aside money to cover all the necessary bills, staff salaries and anticipated purchases. Also, put aside funds for those unexpected items. Somewhere along the line, budget planners might arrive at a philosophical discussion. For the Naples Budget Committee, that discussion happened while deciding on how to allocate town funding to nonprofits and community service groups. On Monday, the Naples Board of Selectmen heard a basic rundown of the proposed budget for fiscal year 2013–14. The board — with Selectmen Dana Watson, Rick Paraschak, and Christine Powers — voted 3–0 to support the proposed budget with official recommendations from the town manager and budget committee members. Budget Committee Chairman Marie Caron said it took a couple of meetings for the committee to review the portion of the budget referred to as Community Groups. “The consensus of the (budget committee), after three hours of discussion between two meetings, it is getting to be the time that the taxpayer needs to decide which groups to support,” Caron said. By passing the budget as proposed — with an increase in the Community Groups, the residents would be able to cut funding when that warrant item is on the floor during Town Meeting. This would allow “the taxpayer to make (his or her) own decision” about which groups to support financially, according to Caron. Town Manager Derik Goodine agreed that planning the Community Groups section of the budget was a tall task. “We did an exercise, which helped to prioritize the groups that serve the people in Naples,” he said. The budget committee had requested presentations and additional information from the groups that requested funding. “A few of the ones that failed to give us requests last year made requests this year. I tried to divvy up as fairly as I could, but keep the amounts as close as to what they were (in the budget) in the previous years,” Goodine said. “There was a question whether the groups could fund-raise or ask private individuals, rather than going through the towns,” he said. “We wanted to give the vets (Western Maine Veterans) something. “If we don’t put something in there, that group won’t go on the budget for Town Meeting. I told the budget committee I had to fund it at something. If they are at zero,

they won’t get anything,” he said. Essentially, the voting residents will have some flexibility if town contributions are set at higher numbers for nonprofits and locally-based community service organizations. The Community Groups’ proposed budget is $49,800, which is $2,000 more than the 2012–13 budget. Naples Town Meeting is scheduled for June 5, which falls on a Wednesday. Warrant items can be finalized as few as seven days before Town Meeting, Goodine said. The selectmen praised the work of some of the budget committee members who were sitting in the audience including but not limited to, Chairman Caron, Jeff Merrill, Richard Cross and Laurel Cebra. “Thank you a lot. (Being on the budget committee) is a thankless job,” Selectman Watson said. Earlier, Caron had commented, “It is has become very difficult to do this. All the managers have done an excellent job to weed everything out. There is not a lot of wiggle room in this budget.” Goodine agreed, saying the 2013–14 budget was a lean budget that not only cut the fat out, but also sliced into a little bit of the meat. However, he was hopeful that the town would not be caught short-funded. “We will make it work. We will use the unanticipated expense – $25,000 — before we go to Special Town Meeting,” he said. These are some the town manager’s highlights of the budget: • Administration has a reduction of $1,670. Savings were found in health insurance, unemployment insurance, telephone bills, legal expenses, and fuel oil. • Animal control is down $733. • The town was able to save on Roads and Highways by cutting $10,000 in paving, and still having enough money to “get through next winter.” • An increase in debt service is due to the road bond, which will be due this year. That decrease of $155,800 brings that line item to $333,275. • The budget shows an increase in Revenue; and that is in part to making a cut in the Road Reserve. • The Town Manager’s total municipal budget is $3,137,609. • The Naples Budget Committee’s total municipal budget is $3,100,429. • The Naples Town Meeting is held on the first Wednesday in June. This year it will be June 5 at 7 p.m. in the large meeting room at the Naples Town Office. • The town does not set the overlay until late September when the tax bills go out. However, the town manager prefers to calculate a mill rate, so residents know where that stands in advance of tax time.

BIG NORTHERN RED OAK in Lovell was a nominee for the Big Tree Contest of Oxford County.

Big tree contest (Continued from Page A) state champ and 18 Oxford County champions. Over the winter, two of the nominees — the Striped Maple in Byron and the Silver Maple in West Paris — have been added to the State Big Tree list. The American Basswood in Waterford, the Eastern Hemlock in Ordway Grove and the Northern Red Oak in Lovell are still in the running; and the American Chestnut in Hebron has seen a wealth of visitors. So, here’s where each town in Oxford County now stands at the start of the 2013 Big Tree Contest: 0: Andover, Bethel, Brownfield, Canton, Denmark, Dixfield, Fryeburg, Gilead, Greenwood, Hanover, Hartford, Hiram, Mexico, Newry, Peru, Roxbury, Rumford, Stoneham, Sumner, Sweden, Upton and Woodstock. 1: Byron, Hebron, Lovell, Oxford, Paris, Stow and West Paris. 2: Norway. 3: Waterford. 5: Buckfield. The focus of the contest this year will be to find some of the lesser-known trees such as Black and Pin Cherry, Alternate-leaf and Florida Dogwood, Hawthorn, Hornbeam, Hophornbeam and Nannyberry. There are also some more trees of large stature that haven’t been nominated, like an American Elm, five types of Oak and three types of Pine. Plus many more! Over the winter the District has begun receiving nominations from folks who believe their trees belong in the Oxford County Register of Big Trees, so beginning May 15 the Oxford County Soil & Water Conservation District will be out there measuring and photograph-

(Continued from Page A) and ultimately placed the question of whether to keep the Fryeburg Police Department or disband it on the June town meeting warrant. Eastman noted that if the question is rejected at the annual town meeting and the local police department is retained, the matter could resurface if another petition is filed. One resident encouraged taxpayers that if problems exist within the police department, efforts should be made, through proper channels, to iron out those matters rather than continue to push for disbanding FPD. When selectmen were asked how they stood on the issue, Eastman said he was leaning toward the sheriff’s department, at the moment, based on potential cost savings — especially in the wake of revenue cuts proposed by the state. Selectman Paul Naughton remains undecided although “the numbers make me lean toward the county…local control makes me lean toward the police department.” Selectman Tom Klinepeter would vote to retain the police department. Where they stand Accompanied by Chief Deputy Hart Daley and County Administrator Scott Cole, Sheriff Gallant pointed out that he was asked to draft two proposals: • One would provide the same 24/7 coverage that Fryeburg PD presently offers. This option would require five officers. Sheriff Gallant said the cost in year one would be $588,460 due to some startup costs, but would

decrease to $491,600 in year two. Fryeburg PD has five full-time officers and one full-timer under a COPS grant, which the town is required to maintain until Feb. 28, 2014. Fryeburg PD’s budget this year is $512,421, which includes $30,000 to pay for an officer to attend the Criminal Justice Academy. Add liability insurance, which is included in another line in the town budget, and the overall cost reaches $538,000. The cost could also go up with the recent unionization of four patrolmen. Selectmen expect to meet with the union rep in the near future to start work on contract negotiations. • The second option would be a less expensive package, utilizing four officers. However, taxpayers nixed this idea because there would be a time frame — 1 to 3 a.m. — which a deputy would be just “on call” not on patrol. The county cost would be $469,060 in the first year and $408,592 in the second year. Selectmen would ultimately select which model to pursue, although Town Manager Sharon Jackson is preparing the budget with the premise that the town would sign on for a five-officer package. Sheriff Gallant noted that Bethel recently disbanded its police force and now contracts with Oxford County. The sheriff said the advantage the county has is its overall “depth” which includes 17 patrol deputies, four detectives, as well as two administrative assistants and a computer science professional. Sheriff Gallant noted that the county hasn’t had a

LIVERMORE — The fourth “Rally for Norlands” Civil War Reenactment Weekend will take place at the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore on Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9. Close to 200 living historians will be camped on the grounds for the weekend, and will scrimmage with replica weaponry. The event is organized by the 3rd Maine Company A and 15th Alabama Company G to benefit the Norlands, Maine’s oldest living history farm and museum. The 445 acres of

rolling hills surrounding the historic Washburn mansion, Gothic library, meetinghouse, cape house, sap house, and one-room schoolhouse make Norlands an ideal place to experience the battles once fought in similar communities to the south and the impact of war on the families who remained on the rural home front. The two-day event includes a battle surgeon demonstration, farm life living history in the Norlands mansion, farmer’s cottage and oneroom schoolhouse, hands-on

activities in the military and civilian camps, guided tours of the 1867 Washburn mansion, dress-up tent with Civil War clothing, wagon rides, blacksmithing, exhibits and demonstrations of traditional crafts, a Victorian fashion show, special programs on the Washburns and Livermore Civil War soldiers, an organ concert and sermon in the 1828 meetinghouse, a scavenger hunt, campfire cooking and musket firing demonstrations.

Students have been interviewing local elders, who have grown up, lived and worked in Fryeburg and are sharing their firsthand experiences and memories. They have heard stories from George Weston, Polly Lutte, AO Pike and others about going to school in one-room schoolhouses, life before indoor plumbing and swimming in the Saco River. There have been field trips to the Weston’s Farm, the Fairgrounds, and to see original murals at the Rufus Porter Museum. Bridget McCormick, an educator from the Maine Historical Society, discussed the process of historical research with the students in preparation for the project.

Enjoy night with Tim Sample

Tim Sample King has likened Sample’s work to that of Mark Twain, and Charles Kuralt called him “Maine’s humorist laureate.” Tim’s books, albums, and videos (including four albums and a video for the Bert and I company) have sold well over a million copies. For 11 years, he was a correspondent for CBS News and a regular

essayist on the Emmy award winning television show CBS News Sunday Morning, hosted by veteran newsman Charles Osgood. Tim was born and raised in Maine and has never lived (or for that matter wanted to live) anywhere other than the Pine Tree State. Tim’s first album of Downeast humor was recorded in 1979 and produced by Noel Paul Stookey, “Paul” of Peter, Paul, and Mary with liner notes by the late humorist Marshall Dodge, who along with his partner Rev. Robert Bryan, created the world-famous “Bert and I” recordings back in the 1950s. After Dodge’s death in 1982, Tim recorded four albums and a video for the Bert and I company. Sample and Bryan have collaborated on a number of projects, including several TV specials, the popular recording “How to Talk Yankee,” and the TV specials Out of Season and Maine

Humor Behind the Barn. Tim has also written and/or illustrated over a dozen books, including regional bestsellers Saturday Night at Moody’s Diner and his most recent Maine Curiosities second edition, co-authored by Stephen Bither, published in 2006 by The Globe Pequot Press. Tim’s national TV appearances include The Today Show and Good Morning America, and he has narrated award-winning films and books on tape, including Robert McCloskey’s children’s classic Bert Dow Deep Water Man and Stephen King’s The Sun Dog. Over the years, Tim has performed thousands of shows in venues as diverse as the Los Angeles Convention Center, the Mall of America, the New York Yacht Club and the Caribou Performing Arts Center.

The circus, being put on by Rijah Newell Productions, is a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization In Defense of Animals, which helps support sanctuaries for retired and injured circus animals. The circus is a collaboration of many talented performers from Boston, Bangor, and Western Maine, including: • Miss Bliss — a mercurial kaleidoscope of light, laughter and piratitude. Her performance art is one part fantasy, two parts frolic and five parts surprise package. She may delight you by riding an elephant, falling from the ceiling, or singing in the shower with a fruit basket on her head! • Rijah Newell — a

Maine resident, offers theatrical puppetry, dance, and all things circus. As director of Circus Ole and a feast of fools, which debuted in the spring of 2012, Newell provides a platform for local and traveling artists to not only showcase their talents but work together as a unified force to raise awareness about the abuse of captive circus animals. • Trash Into Art — a community collective that uses street theater to dismantle social and environmental issues. TIA was created as a community art collective to turn roadside garbage into hideous art as a way to promote awareness about the environmental and economic effects of litter. • Abeza B’Inganzo — a cultural dancing group made of Rwandan women and men who live in Portland and are willing to share the East African culture. • Casual Arcane — is an innovative performance art duo of Sennyo and Riel Green, who bring eccentric

SAD 61 budget meeting (Continued from Page A) Quick work Before taxpayers acted on the 20 articles, SAD 61 Finance Director Sherrie Small gave an overview of the proposed budget. She noted: • The budget represents an increase of $75,000 over the budget passed in 2007-08. • The initial budget was up 8.74%, calling for new positions that totaled near $1 million. Over the past three years, 38 positions in SAD 61 had been cut. The Leadership Team (principals and other administrators) made some cuts to reduce the proposed package to a 6.93% increase. Additions include teachers at Songo Locks Elementary

School in Grades 1 and 3 to keep class sizes in the 18to 20-student range. Without additional staff, class sizes would increase to 20 to 22. • Of the 6.93%, 3.3% of the hike is due to items the district has no control of — one, Governor LePage’s plan to shift teacher retirement costs onto local school systems, and two, increased bonding costs as the result of the federal government sequestering. • SAD 61 received $1.7 million in state subsidy, but that figure was trimmed by $114,000 due to state curtailments. Small said SAD 61 has already been alerted that a $25,000 subsidy reduction will occur in 2013–14.

Once John Robinson was selected as meeting moderator, action on the first article took place at 6:55 p.m. There were no comments or questions voiced by those in attendance — until the end. Douglas Heuiser of Casco described the budget formulation process “atrocious,” calling for school officials to seriously consider closing additional facilities — such as Sebago Elementary School and Crooked River Adult Education — in wake of declining enrollments, as a way to save taxpayers’ money. The meeting adjourned at 7:27 p.m. Now, the budget heads to the polls on May 21.

(Continued from Page A) est deputies live in Stow, Brownfield, Hiram and two in Bridgton. “Local control” is what truly separates the two agencies, Chief Weymouth pointed out. “You have a choice each year to go before the Budget Committee and tell them what you want for police protection,” Chief Weymouth said. “No offense to the county, but you have no vote when it comes to what you want to see for police protection.” Because FPD officers “live here, play here, pay taxes here,” they have a greater stake in the community, and know the people they serve and know where

the “problem areas” are. As to what happens with existing cruisers and equipment, the county would make use of these items. If the town decided to dump the county after three years and restart a police department, Fryeburg would receive the same items back — but the items would be brand new. As to where the sheriff’s substation would be located, various options would be considered, including the old Historical Society building. The existing substation in Brownfield would be moved to Fryeburg, according to County Administrator Scott Cole. After presentations by both Sheriff Gallant and

Chief Weymouth, a microphone was sent into the crowd to allow taxpayers a chance to ask a question or make a comment. Elaine Wilkey simply asked, “Why fix something that isn’t broke?” Her question was applauded by most in attendance. Ultimately, the warrant will include two articles: Article 5 will ask voters to approve $512,000 for the Fryeburg Police Department budget.

Agenda 21 responses

DEP removes oil drums

CEO. In addition to a second set of eyes, Murphy wanted to know if PWD had funding or grants for this type of cleanup. Currently, the water district doesn’t have financial assistance for removing the waste products. According to Murphy, in order to eliminate all the potential contaminants, some soil that was part of a garage fire will have to be removed. He said the home could be inhabitable once again. But, first it would need some maintenance, and a visit from a pest removal company. “This was a step in the right direction,” he said, of removing the oil drums that had been on the site since last fall.

EMS monitors touted By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — Deputy Chief Chris Burnham said it would be a life-saving move to invest in two machines that assist rescue workers. “Getting a second monitor would be a good bang for the buck,” Burnham said, of the budgetary move to buy two older units instead of one newer one. “The biggest reason is: If you spend the money, I guarantee that in two years there will be someone walking around who would not have been,” he said. Burnham was armed with a six-month study of the ZOLL Z Series medical device. During the Naples Board of Selectmen meeting, he spoke in favor of setting aside money in the budget for the purchase of two units. The machine acted as a CPR monitor — giving instant feedback on the patient heartbeat and informing the rescue workers if they are getting too tired while trying to revive the patient.

According to the study, the number of lives saved tripled when first responders used the X Series. On Monday, the board reviewed the proposed budget for fiscal year 2013–14. Naples Budget Committee Chairman Marie Caron said the line item for the cardiac defibrillators was discussed during a budget-planning meeting. “Chief Burnham made a great argument. A six-month study in Portland showed the use of a defibrillator, and the number of lives saved had tripled. The better record was done on the last generation model. “The question was: Do we need two? (Does the rescue department need) one for the ambulance, and another for the backup ambulance,” she said. Chief Burnham said having two was a good safety net for the department and community members. “Our backup truck pulls about 80 calls a year, which is 10 to 15 percent of the calls. At

ments on over 5,700 acres of land in western Maine over the past 25 years. That may sound like a lot of land to some, but Walia points out that only 5% or less of the total land area in the Lake Region is held in conservation. As a relatively small regional land trust, she said, “There isn’t enough financial resources for us to accomplish even our loftiest goals.” Besides, conservation easements are only one of the tools LELT uses, she said, to protect the region’s most highly-valued natural resources. LELT works with local governments on education as well — because it is at the local level where planning is done. Had LELT not stepped in when it did to purchase Hacker’s Hill in Casco, the scenic overlook might have been sold off to a private developer, with access forever lost to future generations. Local residents sent around a dozen letters of concern about the pending sale to LELT, making an urgent appeal for the organization to become involved. A similar scenario guided LELT to become involved in the acquisition of 1,600 acres by the town of Denmark for a community forest. One portion of that large tract contains the Narrow Gauge Trail, an important recreational resource used by hikers and recreational vehicle enthusiasts. The landholder, K&W Timberlands, had a competing offer from a German couple, who were poised to buy the land but backed out when the legal status of the railroad easement couldn’t be definitively determined. “We are not a regulatory group. We have no regulatory authority whatsoever,” she said. LELT also has no desire to displace large segments of the population, concentrating them into one area as Coffman alleges is part of the “end game” of Agenda 21. “We opt to pay property taxes to keep community relations strong,” said Walia. LELT’s role in working with the Trust for Public Lands to create the Lake Region Greenprint, a mapping tool, was simply to help towns identify their most prized resources, so that their existence can be taken into consideration in planning for growth. “It’s not like anyone is secretly carrying out a mission,” said Walia. “We have these shared resources, and to be good stewards and use those resources wisely, there has to be planning. It’s not like it’s a conspiracy.”

least a couple times a week, we have both trucks on the road,” he said. Burnham described a time when he had to sit across from the table and explain to family why we lost their loved one. They had driven to the fire station while he was in cardiac arrest, and the other ambulance was out on a call. The recommendations of both the budget committee and the town manager included money for the ZOLL X Series portable machines. For the Naples Rescue Department, the budget increased by less than one (.62) percent, which is $2,590 more than last year’s budget. However, the Fire Department budget saved $4,920, which is a 2.33 percent drop from the 2012–13 budget.


Brezinski works for the Portland office of a branch of the DEP called the Branch of Remediation and Waste Materials. The Portland office receives about 1,200 calls annually, he said. The majority of responses are for gas station spills, and vehicular accidents that involve 18-wheelers or hazardous material as the cargo. “A tractor trailer can hold up to 200 gallons in the fuel tank,” he said. The DEP responds to toxic spills that range from a few pints to 1,000s of gallons, he said. On Tuesday morning, Brezinski had held off until the contractor arrived to tip the metal drums and make certain the bottom had not rusted out. Everyone involved breathed a sigh of relief that none of the oil drums had leaked into a valuable water source. However, there is a cost involved. According to Casco CEO Don Murphy, it becomes a bit more difficult for the state to be reimbursed when the property is in the hands of a bank or a mortgage company — as it now is. The state funds a program that allows a homeowner to sign an agreement, and pay a small deductible ($500) for what could be a huge bill ($20,000) to remediate the soil and protect that groundwater, he said. When Murphy first learned about the abandoned oil drums, he gained the ear of the Portland Water District. A PWD water resource specialist reviewed the site with the local


(Continued from Page A) homeowner had dabbled in competitive car racing; and the motor oil in the vehicles was changed after every race. Home heating oil had been kept in two of the drums, he said. One metal drum on the side of the house was empty, except for a few inches of water, he said. Casco’s Code Enforcement Officer (CEO) Don Murphy had notified Brezinski last week of the environmental hazard. After Brezinski walked the site with Murphy, he scheduled a contractor to remove the hazardous material. On Tuesday, Environmental Projects, Incorporated (EPI) workers determined that none of the oil drums had leaks. Therefore, new caps were placed on the drums, and those containers were removed from the land. According to an EPI employee, the drums will go to a hazardous waste facility in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, or New Jersey. Those are the locations of the companies with which EPI does business, he said. If the containers did have leaks, then, an ‘overpack’ or larger drum would have been used to seal the drum. Hazardous material jobs involving oil drums do not happen that frequently. “We get calls — maybe twice a year — of drums near an abandoned house or a foreclosed house, or drums left on the side of the road,” Brezinski said. “It happens. People don’t think about oil leaks,” he said.

to too much government control ought to be focusing their energies on the out-ofcontrol spending now going on in the U.S. military, or at any number of other federal agencies. “I have my own concerns about how the government is spending its money — I think most people do. The government is bloated and out of control, so it’s no wonder people are concerned,” he said, “especially when we’re not getting enough information to know what’s going on.” But in the sphere that (LEA) operates in, said Lowell, “Agenda 21 has absolutely no influence over us.” Lowell has no interest in getting into a public debate with anti-Agenda 21 activists. “If they want to come in and talk face-to-face, that’s fine. I’ve had people write nasty letters about me for 40 years, and I don’t respond to them unless they are slanderous or libelous,” he said. “The thing is, you’re not going to change these people’s minds, so let them play it out however they can. Until you come in and see what we’re about, you can harbor all kinds of prejudices, and I can’t deal with that by trading shots on the editorial page.” Carrie Walia, Loon Echo Land Trust Walia also had never heard of Agenda 21 before Coffman’s initial talk last year at the Magic Lantern. She echoed many of Lowell’s points, saying LELT’s core mission is to protect land for future generations, and it only works with willing landowners. The organization pays fair market value on many of its acquisitions, which include conservation ease-

(Continued from Page A) are trying to do the right thing, and I think we have.” One of the main roles of LEA’s Board of Directors, he said, is to provide fiduciary oversight of LEA projects, “to make sure we’re not hypocrites and we’re not overstepping our bounds. Everything we do is right open out in the bright sunlight,” and the notion that any of LEA’s actions are subversive or manipulative “is simply absurd,” Lowell said. LEA only relies on a very small amount of federal funding for its operation, Lowell said. “We try not to be dependent on it because most federal grants are “so unbelievably administratively top-heavy” that LEA has to spend too much time on bookkeeping, which takes away from its core mission, he said. LEA found that out the hard way in recently taking on a federal grant to study the Highland Lake watershed. “They are certainly educating people about what Agenda 21 is,” said Lowell, referring to local residents who have developed an active interest in the subject and who organized Coffman’s appearance. “But the real question is, does it have any relevance in Casco, Maine? And I don’t see it. I honestly don’t,” said Lowell. “If I thought that the nonprofit communities were confiscating land or taking lands in less than fair market value — or exercising any authoritarian values — then I would be as concerned as they are. I’m a landowner and a taxpayer too,” he said. He thinks it’s misguided to target organizations like his. Instead, those opposed

Tickle those taste buds at Souper Sunday A reminder that the Lovell United Church of Christ Youth Group will be holding a Souper Sunday on Sunday, May 19 after the Sunday service. Anyone wanting to take part or just be a taster is invited to join the fun. It’s really easy — just bring your favorite soup, chowder, or stew and enter. If last year is any indication, your taste buds will be both tickled and satisfied. The Youth Group will donate all proceeds to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The Adult Book Discussion Series at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will conclude its “Gilded Age” series with a talk on Monday, May 13 at 1 p.m., on Poland Spring: A Tale of the Gilded Age by David Richards. The book describes how a family farmstead was converted in the latter part of the

19th century into a famous Victorian resort. Also included in the book is the history of the Poland Spring Water Company and its importance to the economy. The book is available at the library free of charge. It’s unusual for the cribbage group to still be playing this far into May. It seems as though the ones who started playing right after the fair hate to give up. This is a diverse group, coming from all areas, including New Hampshire. The cribbage scores are carefully kept by Al St. Germain, our scorekeeper, and the leaders change from week to week, which makes it very interesting. The first week in June is our final week for play, and time for our party. Those who play are indebted to the library for the use of the hall. Is that okay Alma?

Lovell by Ethel Gilmore-Hurst Lovell Correspondent 925-3226 The Lovell Recreation Department is planning a trip to the Boothbay Harbor Botanical Gardens on Monday, June 10. The Botanical Gardens cover over 250 acres and include formal gardens, stonework and manmade waterfalls and ponds, which gives an impressive view for all visitors. Many of the Maine ferns and mosses cover the massive ledges abutting the waterfront. The gardens are a perfect setting for those who like to wander here and there to take in all the beauty. The trip

includes the two-hour garden tour, from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., followed by a lunch of a sandwich, chips, drink and homemade dessert. There will be some free time if desired. The plans are to meet at the parking lot of the Fryeburg/ Lovell VFW Post #6783 on Smarts Hill Road at 8 a.m. to drive to the gardens. The recreation department is looking for volunteers to drive so that everyone can car pool. The cost of the trip is $25 per adult. For more information, make a reservation, or

to volunteer to drive, contact the Lovell Rec’s Director Margaret Dyer at lovellrec. or Third graders at the New Suncook School took part in the annual Jump Rope for Heart event April 29. This activity is one way to prove to the students that just by jumping rope you can keep your heart healthy. With the help of many volunteering parents, the children managed to jump rope for two hours. For the time they jumped, the students took pledges and raised a wonderful $1,281.10, which will be donated to heart research. Physical Education teacher Alison Wolfe would like to thank the parents who either turned ropes or donated snacks and juices to keep the kids jumping. Great job all around. The continuation of upgrades to the putting

area around the Lake Kezar Country Club will take place on May 18. Two springs ago, an entry garden was planted at the club, based on a design by Suzanne Higham. Now the second phase is ready to be added around the putting green and the clubhouse. None of this can be accomplished without the help of… yep, you got it, volunteers. To finish the design, Suzanne could use five teams of two or three people. If anyone would like to help they can show up at the clubhouse at 9 a.m. The United Church of Christ Thrift Shop is now sporting spring and summer wear.

Writer, photographer Kish in Lovell May 14 LOVELL — The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will host freelance writer and photographer Carey Kish on Tuesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. Kish is editor of the AMC Maine Mountain Guide and of the AMC Maine Chapter Wilderness Matters newsletter, and is the hiking and camping columnist for the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram. A Registered Maine Guide, he has led countless outdoor trips throughout Maine and New England. He has through-hiked the entire 2,150-mile Appalachian Trail, and completed twodozen long distance trails in the United States, Canada and Europe. The 10th edition of the AMC Maine Mountain Guide (published in 2012), exhaustively researched and revised, features updated and expand-

ed descriptions for hundreds of existing trails. In addition, the guide features 75 new mountains and more than 200 new trails, thereby increasing the already wide variety of hiking possibilities available for every level of hiking interest and ability. Join Carey Kish, editor of the new Maine Mountain Guide, for a look inside the features of new guidebook, some notes on its history, and an overview of what went into its compilation. The new guide took more than a year of research, editing and writing to complete. In all, more than 1,000 hours, plus about 1,500 miles of driving and hundreds of miles of hiking. And that’s just by Carey! Fortunately, he had lots of able assistance, which ranged from the many local, state, and federal agencies and organizations to many

Garden Wizards whimsical hit

(Continued from Page B) adding on to the product line. Just last weekend, he said, a man came in and bought 10 garden sculptures. And two of his larger leaf creations — so large they can be used as birdbaths — sold this past weekend at $125 each, he said. He has future plans to create outdoor tables from some of the larger leaf art, the kind that uses the big banana or

pumpkin leaves. Next up are life-sized statues, he said, of angels and/or mermaids — although the molds alone for such a large statue are $9,000, he said. Cartonio has been at his Bridgton location for 10 years, since moving from his former location in Gorham. “I’ve been pushing pansies for close to 30 years now,” he said. “But at least I’m not

pushing up daisies.” The Garden Wizards International sideline will enable him to keep his five employees busy year-round, he said, and fits in nicely to maintain a year round business profile. He doesn’t have his creations available to view online. “The best way for people to see them is to come and visit,” he said.

Diamond chips Softball: Wells 11, Lakers 0 At Wells, the Lakers managed just two hits — including a double by Jackie Laurent — and struck out 10 times against Warrior hurler Lauren Bame. Wells led 1-0 after one, 3-0 after three and opened the game up with a five-run fifth inning. The Warriors collected 12 hits. Falmouth 14, Lakers 1 The Yachtsmen cranked two home runs to back a four-hitter tossed by Julia Treadwell in a romp over the Lakers in a game called after five innings. The lone Laker run came on a home run by Kayleigh Lepage in the second inning, cutting the Falmouth lead to 5-1. Baseball: Wells 8, Lakers 2 The Lakers got off to a good start as Ben Chaine singled home Brody Stofflet, who belted a double to open the game. But, the Warriors plated a pair of runs in the first and second inning, touching up LR pitching for 10 hits en route to the victory. Lake Region managed just four hits, including an RBI double by freshman Jordan Williams in the sixth inning. Chaine finished with two hits.

Raiders show their ‘swag’ answer Clippers’ challenge YARMOUTH — Their “swagger” may be back. For weeks, Coach Fred Apt has warned his Fryeburg Academy softball team that every opponent would bring their “A” game in hopes of knocking off the defending Class B West champs. He emphasized that unless the Raiders played with intensity and remained focus, they could be upset. Yarmouth tested the Raiders’ mettle Monday, giving FA all they could handle in a 5-3 loss. Fryeburg jumped out to a 2-0 lead as senior Maddie Pearson drilled a second pitch fastball off the left-center fence for a double with one out. Sarah Harriman pulled VICTORIA GIRARDIN of Lake Region squeezes a catch a 2-0 pitch into right field in centerfield during recent varsity softball play. to score Pearson. Courtesy (Rivet Photo)

runner Julia Quinn rounded the bases when Kylie Locke singled sharply to center and the Clipper outfielder misplayed the ball, allowing the run to score. Yarmouth cashed in on a walk and infield error to cut the FA lead to 2-1 in the second. Both teams left runners in scoring position in the fourth. Yarmouth’s Michelle Robichaud slapped a double down the leftfield line and moved up on an infield out, but did not score as Harriman struck out Mari Cooper. With two outs in the fifth, the Raiders quieted a boisterous Yarmouth squad as Pearson blasted a drive that cleared the centerfield fence. Harriman then crushed a fastball “right down the

middle of the plate” over the rightfield fence for a 4-1 Raider lead. On most days, that barrage would signal the end of the game. Not on Monday. With a heavy fog rolling across the diamond, Yarmouth appeared to have tied the game when Kallie Hutchinson clocked a home run to right with two teammates aboard. But, the celebration was quickly tempered when FA Coach Fred Apt challenged whether the runner in front of Hutchinson had touched home plate. The home plate umpire also saw the missed touch and ruled the runner out. Fryeburg added an insurance run in the seventh as Pearson (3-for-4, 3 runs RAIDERS, Page C

Adam Falk

Frances Kimball

Adam Falk has incredible energy and loves to play any sport — including tennis. “His background in tennis is limited, but his will to compete is unlimited. He not only learns from an opponent who plays better than him, but he asks for coaching tips and applies them immediately,” Lake Region varsity boys’ tennis coach Brook Sulloway said. “Adam can adapt to an opponent’s game quickly and find ways to stay in the game. He has an amazing ability to run and reach for hard-to-get shots. This is often a frustration for opponents who think they are going to dispense with him quickly.” Coach Sulloway says Adam is “clearly a dedicated student and a great role model to have on the team.” Adam has been a pleasure to coach, Sulloway added. The coach has enjoyed watching Adam’s improvement day by day. “Adam has only won one match, but he has taken many opponents to close sets,” Coach Sulloway said. “Onlookers are often impressed with his ability to run and reach shots that, for most, would be winners.” In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Adam is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing. Recipients receive a specially-designed t-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber. The Falk File Name: Adam Falk, exchange student Year in School: Senior Town: Casco Parents: Michelle and Keith Brenner

Frances Kimball is tenacious on the tennis court. A third-year member of the Lake Region varsity girls’ tennis team, Frances moved from doubles action this season to the team’s Number 3 singles player. “What has impressed me most about Frances is her tenacity.  She plays each point as if it were for the championship. Balls that I don’t think possible to get to, Frances is able to make the play with her hustle and willingness to give it her all,” Lake Region Coach Kim Peterson said.  “Frances has taken the time to take lessons in the offseason that has helped her stroke and confidence.” Frances is a quiet leader, willing to take on any role asked.  “This year, I have many players in practice that could win on any given day. When I saw Frances in her first singles match this year, I knew she was in the right spot,” Coach Peterson said. “Her determination to always give her all and persevere when times are tough are why I chose Frances to be our Player of the Week.” In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Frances is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing.

FA boys’ tennis highlights (Continued from Page C) Recap: “I am proud of how the boys are playing. They are not only competing, but thinking out there, and it’s only helping them gain confidence and experience with every match,” Coach Chaffee said. In other action, Waynflete 4, Fryeburg 1 Fryeburg Academy dropped to 1-2 on the year. Waynflete improves to 3-0. “Waynflete is always a tough team. They have a lot of depth in their line up around, but I always look forward to the challenge to play them,” FA Coach Justin Chaffee said. “Despite the loss, I am proud of the way

the boys are competing. They are learning with each match. We’re going to get back up and give it our all again next week, and hopefully pull out a couple more wins.” Singles: 1. Jamie Berned (Frye) loss Isaac Salas (Wayn) 4-6, 5-7. Coach Chaffee: Jamie and Isaac had an all around competitive match, with good points, and the ball striking. Isaac was just able to capitalize on a few mistakes by Jamie at key moments to capture a break in each set. That made the difference in the match. 2. Pavle Bulatovic (Frye) loss Ben Shaprio (Wayn) 16, 0-6.

Coach Chaffee: Pavle and Ben also had long, tough points. Ben relied on his counter punching, to win the key points. 3. Alex Lazic (Frye) loss Clancy Mitchell (Wayn) 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 Coach Chaffee: This was another tightly-contested match where each set could of gone either way. Clancy was a little bit more consistent on those crucial points. Doubles: 1. Kevin Yeh/ Brandt Xiang (Frye) def. Jon Tao/Peter Michelakes(Wayn) 6-4, 5-7, (10-4). Coach Chaffee: Kevin and Brandt are the dynamic duo of the doubles court. They

have a unique way of playing, and it works for them. They communicate well, and are always tough. They tapped into their experience to pull out a win in a super tie-break for the third. 2. Jonathan Burk/Milos Mitic (Frye) loss Steven Epstein/Misha Liamehan (Wayn) 3-6, 1-6. Coach Chaffee: Coach Chaffee: Jonathan and Milos are improving with each match, and that’s great to see. Their competitiveness is always going to be there. Steve and Misha were able to gain control of the net more, and in doubles, the team that is able to do that on a consistent basis wins.

Raider baseball (Continued from Page C) Key Players: Tyler Hill was 5 for 6, scored 5 runs, and had 3 RBI; Ian MacFawn was 3 for 4 with a walk, two home runs, a triple, and 8 RBI. Key Play: In the fifth inning after Sacopee made it a four-run ball game in the fourth, Kyle Bonner hit a two-run double with two outs to start a seven-run inning and put the game out of reach. Up next: The Raiders (4-5 after a 4-2 loss to Yarmouth on Monday) host Cape Elizabeth on Friday at 6 p.m., host Poland on Monday at 4 p.m. and travel Wednesday to Gray-New Gloucester for a 4 p.m. game.

This week’s puzzle

Theme: Landmarks

Trinity College head men’s ice hockey coach Matt Greason (formerly of North Bridgton) has been selected as the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Coach of the Year. Matt, a captain and All-New England forward for the Bantams and an assistant coach from 2007 to 2009, guided Trinity through a consistently successful season that included a five-game winning streak in the NESCAC and no losing skid longer than two games in 2012-13. The Bantams pounded top-seeded Bowdoin, 10-5, on neutral ice in the regular-season finale to secure the No. 3 seed and a home game in the NESCAC Championship Tournament. Matt is 24-20-5 in two seasons as the Trinity Head Coach. Trinity is located in Hartford, Conn. Matt completed his second season as the third head coach in the 38-year history of the varsity men’s ice hockey program at Trinity. Matt returned to Trinity, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees, served as an assistant coach, and was a two-time All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) player, in September of 2011 Trinity was 9-13-2 overall and 6-10-2 in the NESCAC in Matt’s first season at the helm. Matt was an assistant coach in 2007-08 and 2008-09, helping the Bantams to a 32-20-2 record that included the program’s second NESCAC title and its third appearance in the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament. Prior to Trinity, Matt was an assistant coach at KingswoodOxford School and Kent School for five years. He also served on the staff for the Atlantic District of USA hockey coaching the best players from the New Jersey and Philadelphia area, and has been a guest lecturer at the level 3 and 4 coaching education program for USA hockey.  With the U.S. National Team Development program, Matt coached the defense for the U-17 and U-18 squads, served as head coach at the NTDP top-40 tryout camp, and was an assistant for Team USA in the Ivan Hlinka Tournament in the Czech Republic which features U-18 National Teams from around the world. Matt grew up in North Bridgton and attended North Yarmouth Academy. After NYA, he took a post-graduate year at the Hill School in Pottstown, Pa. and matriculated to Trinity College where he played hockey for the Bantams from 1998-2002.  Matt earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Trinity in 2003 and his master’s degree in American Studies from the college in 2010. A captain of the Bantam ice hockey and golf squads, Matt was an All-NESCAC Second Team honoree as a junior and a First Team All-NESCAC and Division II/III All-New England selection on the ice as a senior. He also graced the All-NESCAC and All-New England Division III teams as a linksman, and was the head golf coach at Kent School for three years.  Matt resides in Wethersfield, Conn. He is the son of Randy and Marsha Greason of Windham.

Foundations team up to fight diabetes

MATT VAN VLIET of Bridgton, a senior at ColbySawyer College, qualified for the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) in Springfield, Mass. at the New England Championships hosted by Colby College in Waterville. Matt qualified in the triple jump with a fifth place distance of 45-feet 3-inches along with a qualifying fourth place height of 6-feet 4-inches in the high jump. Matt tied the Colby-Sawyer high jump school record, was voted MVP, nominated for Athlete of the Year and made the All New England Team in two events. Matt graduated from Lake Region High School in 2009 and will be graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology May 2013.

FRYEBURG — Brenda Leavitt, Richard Leavitt and Donna Woodward, founders of the Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund, headed to the 10th Annual Vince Wilfork Foundation Draft Night Fundraiser in Milton, Mass. on April 25. Their mission was to meet with the Wilforks to discuss the possibilities of collaborative efforts to raise awareness about diabetes.   The Vince Wilfork Foundation for Diabetes was founded in honor of Vince’s father, who passed away 11 years ago from Diabetes related complications, as does the Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund, which honors Miranda Maria Leavitt who tragically passed away at the young age of 22 on Feb. 17, 2007 from diabetes complications. Similar to the Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund, The Vince Wilfork Foundation supports those without the financial means to provide services and care for their loved ones.   The Leavitts’ meeting with Vince and Bianca brought to light the realty of this common mission and the Leavitt Family was thrilled to have the Wilforks indicate their willingness to collaborate efforts to raise awareness about diabetes.  Nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes and

another 79 million have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have the disease by 2050 if steps are not taken to stop it. The American Diabetes Association estimates that the total national cost of diagnosed diabetes in the United States is $174 billion. Further published studies suggest that when additional costs for gestational diabetes, pre-diabetes and undiagnosed diabetes are included, the total costs in the United States could exceed $218 billion. It was Miranda’s mission to educate, assist and fund people in her community (MWV and western Maine), with diabetes. A year after Miranda’s untimely passing, Donna Woodward, friend of the Leavitt family, compiled a group of family and friends to form the Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund. The White Mountain Community Health Center (in cooperation with Memorial Hospital Diabetes Center), utilize the Fund for those who need assistance with Diabetes related issues, as well as provides community wide education about both type 1 and 2 diabetes. “We feel privileged to honor Miranda’s dreams and are humbled by the support shown by the Wilfork Foundation and the community as a whole,” said Brenda

Raiders run softball record to 9-0 (Continued from Page C) scored) reached on an infield hit and later scored on a rope over the Yarmouth centerfielder’s head by Kylie Locke, good for a RBI double. Admittedly pumped up by the challenge put forth by the Clippers, Harriman struck out four of the final seven hitters she faced to keep the Raiders perfect at 9-0. “I am proud of the way you battled here today,” Coach Apt told his players after the game. As Yarmouth players huddled for their post-game

chat, Clipper players started to cheer. They had lost, but left the field with a moral victory. They had given the champs a battle. Fryeburg players were again reminded that when you are the team everyone is shooting for, you better be up for the challenge each time out. FA stat line: Harriman allowed just 3 hits while striking out 10. She did, however, issue a season high 5 walks. FA’s heart of the order carried the day, collecting all 9 hits. Harriman was 3-for-4

with 2 RBI, while Locke went 3-for-4 with a RBI. After a slow start to the season (0for-10), Locke has been on a tear, going 11-for-21 to raise her average to .355. In other action Raiders 8, Sacopee 0. Sarah Harriman struck out 8 and allowed just 3 hits as the Raiders blanked the Hawks in South Hiram last Wednesday. After a quiet first three innings, the Raiders finally broke through with a run in the fourth. Kylie Locke singled and later scored on a scorching line drive up the middle by Makayla Frost. Fryeburg sent 12 players to bat in the fifth, scoring seven runs. Key hits were singles by Maddie Pearson, Harriman (2 RBI) and a RBI double into the gap by Sydney Charles. For the Raiders, Locke was 2-for-4. Elle Burbank had a single in the fifth.

Raiders 17, York 0: Sophomore Kristen Chipman launched a two-run home run to deep center to spark a 4-run fourth as the Raiders hammered the Wildcats last Friday at York. FA scored a run in the first as Carla Tripp (3-for-3, 4 runs scored) reached on a bunt single and later scored. In the third, Fryeburg plated two runs on a Tripp single and two York errors. Fryeburg exploded for 10 runs in the sixth inning as 14 players went to the plate. Key hits were by RBI singles from Maddie Pearson, Kylie Locke and Ellen Bacchiocchi. Pearson later drilled a 3-run double. Sarah Harriman paced the 14-hit attack with a 4-for-4 day. Emily Davidson went 2for-3 with 2 runs scored. Harriman struck out 8 Wildcats, walked 3 and allowed a sharp single up the middle in the second inning.

help, we can do much more to educate our New England region about diabetes.” The Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund is excited about their upcoming fundraiser, which will take place at The Northern NE Home Garden Flower Show in Fryeburg. When show producer, Karla Ficker, became aware that one of her exhibitors, Gagne and Son, wanted to find a way to help adults and children afflicted with diabetes she put them in touch with The Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund. Michael Michaud, a longtime employee of this Mainebased company, is dealing with type II Adult Onset Diabetes and through his drive and determination to heighten awareness, Gagne and Son Inc. was eager to help with a fundraiser by offering to raffle off one of their beautiful natural stone patios. This 20’x20’ patio comes complete with brick oven and patio furniture and is valued at $9,900. Raffle tickets will be on sale for $5 each at the show May 17, 18 and 19. The winner of the natural stone patio will be drawn at the Northern NE Home Garden Flower Show at Fryeburg Fairgrounds on Sunday, May 19 at 2 p.m. (you do not have to be present to win) Tickets and an invitation were presented to the Wilforks with hope they will be available to come support the event! To make a donation, mail a check to WMCHC-Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund to: Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Fund, PO Box 611, Fryeburg, ME 04037.

Denmark Mountain Hiker Wayne Peabody entertains fellow hikers with his Native American flute at the summit of Green Mountain. (Photos by Allen Crabtree) (Biennial Report of the Forestry Commission, 1921-22). This fire tower is one of 16 in New Hampshire in service today. The Green Mountain fire tower has been operated on a part-time, high risk-only basis since 2009. There are extensive wild low-bush blueberries at the summit that make the climb a popular one when the berries are ripe. At one point, litter was a problem on the High Watch Trail and at the summit from hikers and picnickers. To solve the problem, Jay Gallegher, a state fire tower watchman, once put up a sign which read, in part: “Please take all litter with you — my wife is coming up next week and I don’t want her to think I keep an untidy mountain.” (Portsmouth Herald) The Denmark Mountain Hikers climbed Green Mountain via the High Watch trail on a misty day in September 2012. The views were non-existent but the hike was fun and we met some new hikers on the trail who have since joined our group. At the summit Wayne Peabody, one of our hikers, entertained the group with his Native American flute. Hike facts Green Mountain is located in Carroll County, Effingham, N.H. Difficulty: Moderate Trail distance: 1.6 miles to the summit via High Watch

Pass the large Lakeview Rehabilitation Facility on the right and just beyond the road ends and there is parking. The trailhead is on the right. To the Dearborn trailhead: Take Route 16 North to Route 153. Take Route 153 North to Lord’s Hill in Effingham and at the sharp corner turn left onto Hobbs Road at the Normal House sign. Hobbs Road is dirt. The parking lot is on the right, and the trailhead is at the back of the parking lot. To the Libby trailhead: Take Green Mountain Road from Route 25 in Effingham Falls. Bear left onto Champion Road, and left again onto Libby Road at the small fire tower sign. The road is rough dirt. Trailhead is at the top of the hill on the left. Trail Information: There are three trails to the summit of Green Mountain. The most popular is the High Watch

Trail climbing the mountain from the west. The Libby and Dearborn Trails climb from the east, and are also pretty trails. The High Watch Trail follows the old jeep trail used by the forest fire warden, climbing steadily. At the point where the warden used to park his vehicle (garage now gone), the road turns to a hiking trail, climbing steadily over ledges to the summit. The summit is now grown in, but there are views from the platform below the warden’s room on the fire tower, or from ledges at the adjacent Hanson Top, a secondary summit (1,820 feet elevation). It is recommended that hikers refer to a trail guide for more details in planning a trip. The AMC White Mountain Guide has more information on Green Mountain. What to bring: Clothes suitable to the season (hat, gloves, jacket), touring poles, sunglasses, water and snacks, personal first aid kit, pocket knife, whistle, matches or fire starter, map and compass, flashlight or headlamp and cell phone. Let someone know your hiking plans before you leave! Next: The next hiking column will be on Tuckerman Ravine in Pinkham Notch, N.H.

The Green Mountain fire tower — one of 16 towers in service in New Hampshire.

“The essence of the mountain experience is challenge, difficulty, reaching the inaccessible, rising to heights you haven’t achieved before,” — Professor Charles Ernest Fay, in The Death of Passaconaway, from A Fine Kind of Madness by Laura and Guy Waterman By Allen Crabtree Guest Writer Green Mountain (1,883 feet elevation) in Effingham, N.H., is east of the Ossipee Mountains and not far from the Maine-New Hampshire border. It is not a tall mountain, but is isolated offering nice views from the forest fire tower on the summit. Hanson Top, a secondary summit close to the main summit at 1,820 feet elevation, offers fine views from its exposed ledges. The Society for the Preservation of New Hampshire Forests owns 2,171 acres on Green Mountain as the High Watch Preserve, purchased in 2007. The Society has worked since its founding in 1901 to establish permanent conservation areas and promote the wise stewardship of private lands. It is the state’s oldest and largest nonprofit land conservation organization. The Society maintains the trailhead kiosk and the three well-blazed trails to the summit. The High Watch trail climbs the mountain from the west, and the Libby and Dearborn trails from the east. All are moderate hikes that climb steadily to the summit. The Green Mountain State Forest is located at the top of the mountain. The State of New Hampshire purchased 15 acres at the summit of Green Mountain in 1921 “…for the purpose of erecting a fire lookout station to be maintained jointly with the State of Maine. This station is located within a short distance of the New Hampshire-Maine line and offers exceptional facilities for fire prevention work in both states. “Under a cooperative agreement with the Maine Forestry Commission a 47-foot steel tower on Cedar Mountain in Maine was moved to Green Mountain in Effingham during the past summer and will be maintained jointly by Maine and New Hampshire…”

A fantastic job.” The jumping events are looking very good with Dacota Griffin in the pole vault, Bright Amoako in the triple jump and Walker Mallory in the high jump and the discus. Walker met the state standard in the discus and is becoming a force in the Western Maine Conference, Coach McDonald reported. On the girls’ side, a fantastic mile race that saw Juliet Fink lead the entire way only to be nipped at the wire by Anna Lastra followed by Liz Grzyb for a 1-2-3 finish. “These young ladies are breaking barriers and finding strength from workouts and believing in themselves.

Calvin grows up…sort of Views from the Uppermost House by S. Peter Lewis BN Columnist In the last frame of a great Calvin and Hobbes cartoon, Calvin is sitting at the kitchen table with a bowl in front of him, holding a spoon and looking straight into the eyes of the viewer. “I won’t eat any cereal that doesn’t turn the milk purple,” he says, with obvious glee. When I was Calvin’s age (6), my cereal preference was not based on what color the milk turned or how thick the sugar coating was or if there were any percussive snap-crackle-pop noises; I was much more pragmatic — I just wanted the stuff they promised if you sent in enough box tops: erector sets, secret decoder rings, balsa wood airplanes

with rubber-band engines, magic sets, sea monkeys (just add water), amazing crystal-growing kits (just add more water), x-ray vision glasses (a huge disappointment), “How to be a real spy” books, and the like. I would have gladly munched eight boxes of Pablum-Infused Cardboard Shreds if it had got me a miniature submarine that ran on baking soda and vinegar (not included). An envelope full of Sugar Pops box tops once got me an ant farm, although the package arrived in our mailbox in January and the ants appeared stiff and lifeless from the frigid cold. My mother (a very clever woman) defrosted the insects on a cookie sheet in the oven, which she had preheated and then let cool until it was resurrectingly warm. I can still remember mom and me on our knees, peering in through the oven window while the little guys began to stir and scratch about. (“Quick, get me a spatula and a mixing bowl!”) This was way back in the olden days of the 1960s, and while I had no understanding of delayed gratification, I nonetheless had to suffer the long delays involved in corresponding via the U.S. Postal Service, running down the driveway each afternoon after school to check the mailbox, and one day sitting with mom in our 1963 Rambler station wagon at the end of the CALVIN, Page D

By 2025, the average cost of a college education figures to be about one and a half million dollars per student, excluding tips and gratuities (1). It’s become difficult for average American families to send their students off to even old State U without incurring crippling debt — but really, who cares about average American families, anyway? Well, I do! That’s why I am opening up my own institution of higher learning, The University of Notre Corrigan — because I don’t believe academic institutions should be allowed to profit so obscenely from the aspirations of normal Americans who just want a sheepskin in order to raise themselves up by their bootstraps (or in the cases of those on athletic scholarships, by their jockstraps, an even more dramatic maneuver.)

Early fish talk

The children’s conversation turned from fast food dining to fishing. All of this took place after proper introductions, of course. “My name is David. I am four,” the first said, breaking the ice. “There is a boy named David in my kindergarten class. He is my friend,” was the response. “Have you ever tried a cheeseburger at Burger King? I ate one the other day and it was the best cheeseburger ever,” said the very verbal four-year old. “Then, we were going to go bass fishing, but we didn’t go because my dad said it was too late, and it was getting dark,” FISH TALK, Page D

Trying to solve Syria Probably not many readers have devoted a lot of thought to the question of what to do about Syria, site of a two-year, deadly civil war where the autocrat Bashar al Assad may — repeat may — have used nerve gas and President Obama is thinking about arming the rebels. Let’s go back to basics by considering the options available to Obama. Possible strategies might be selected from our past choices in the Middle East. Running down the list, we could choose to: • Do nothing (except a bit of harmless finger-wagging) as in Bahrain, where we have a naval base and our friend Saudi Arabia runs the show; • Pray on the sidelines for better times as in Egypt, where we have limited means ($$$) to influence decisions in an increasingly unruly country; • Inflict isolation and harsh import and export sanctions as in Iran; • “Lead from behind” as in Libya and Mali where we SYRIA, Page D

Letters Public disservice

To The Editor: The Bridgton News did its readers a disservice by giving extensive coverage to an April 20 meeting that discussed the so-called Agenda 21. Between a two-page feature article and a long letter to the editor, the newspaper devoted nearly 100 inches of column space in the May 2 edition to what was little more than an old-fashioned medicine show — all snake oil, no substance. The article characterized guest speaker Dr. Michael Coffman as an “environmental scientist,” who considers global climate change to be a “scam,” and President Obama to be “part of a plan by the Islamic Brotherhood to turn America into an Islamic controlled nation.” Whoa! I’ve never heard of a reputable scientist, who believes that kind of paranoid, rightwing claptrap, so I did a

little research on Coffman. Actually, he is a former pulp and paper executive for Champion International. These days, he heads something called Sovereignty International, which is a farright propaganda front-group affiliated with the State Policy Network, a nationwide web of such groups, all funded by a tiny cabal of super-rich, right-wing special interests including the Koch Brothers, the Olin Foundation, the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, the Adolph Coors Foundation, and several other similar “environmental” organizations. Among 59 of those groups are the American Legislative Exchange Council, (ALEC), and Gov. LePage’s beloved Maine Heritage Policy Center. They all have the same mission: propagate extreme right-wing disinformation on every controversial issue before the public, and lobby legislatures across the nation to enact the antilabor, anti-union, pro-corporate-greed agenda favored by their billionaire paymasters. It took me about 10 minutes of research to discover who the illustrious Dr.

It appears this newspaper failed to do that research, and so it did the public a grave disservice by presenting this guy as a serious scientist rather than the well-paid, professional propagandist he actually is. A few weeks ago, Tom McLaughlin raised the question whether a country can become too stupid to survive. The answer, of course, is “Yes.” We’re approaching that point when we treat charlatans and quacks as though they were reliable sources of information. Glenn Beck might believe our president is a dupe of the Islamic Brotherhood, but no reputable scientist would consent to appear with such an irresponsible loony. Michael Coffman had no such qualms, and that tells us all we need to know about this famous “environmental scientist.” Rev. Robert Plaisted Bridgton

By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor Some Medicare beneficiaries are now experiencing the “donut hole” in Part D drug coverage when, instead of paying the modest co-pays for prescriptions, they have to pay a larger percentage of the full price. That percentage, which was 100% before the Affordable Care Act, started going down in 2011. This year, the Affordable Care Act requires drug manufacturers to give 52.5% discounts on brand name medicines and Medicare offers 21% discounts on generics, during the coverage gap. By 2020, there will be no coverage gap at all. Here is how the “donut hole” works: Mrs. Drew’s Medicare Rx plan keeps track of her drug purchases during the year. Starting on Jan. 1, she paid full price for her medicines until she satisfied the annual deductible (if her plan has a deductible). After satisfying the deductible, she has been paying the much smaller co-pay amounts. The amount of the copay depends on which “tier” the drug falls. In the meantime the plan has been maintaining a log of their full prices for her purchases. They do this in order to determine when she will enter the coverage gap. If and when Mrs. Drew’s purchases, computed at the full prices, have reached $2,970, she will then begin to pay 47.5% of the full price for brand name drugs and 79% for generics. This coverage gap will end, however, if and when she has paid $4,750 out-ofpocket for her drugs — not including the monthly NUGGET, Page D

Spring birds

The top step of the cottage is one of my favorite places to sit at this time of year. Tiny leaves are beginning to sprout on the shrubs, the crowns of the red maples are blushing red with flowers, and the afternoon sun feels warm. The chickadees are singing, and our resident phoebes are flying back and forth attending to their nest, which they built in a protected spot under the corner of the porch. Earlier today, a broad-winged hawk cruised through the yard, hunting for prey to take back to its own nest in the woods. The wood ducks, who were in the cove every morning for several weeks, have been scarce lately, and we think they may be nesting in the woods near the point. True to their name, wood ducks often perch in trees, and they nest in tree cavities. According to Mary Holland, author of Naturally Curious, the ducklings are precocial, covered with down and fully active when they hatch. Within 24 hours of hatching, they climb up to the entrance hole of the nest cavity, using claws at the ends of their webbed feet. The parent waits below, calling encouragement, as the lightweight ducklings leap out into the air one by one, and fall as far as 24 feet. If the nest overhangs a pond they land on water, otherwise they land on the ground, where they may bounce like little tennis balls. If the nest is far inland, the new ducklings have a long dangerous hike to get to the water. Most ducks and geese are nesting now, living quiet, secluded lives, but other birds are livelier, and as I sit here on the cottage step I am hoping to spot a warbler. Folks who don’t know about the annual spring warbler migration are missing one of nature’s most spectacular and beautiful phenomena, as these small, active, colorful songbirds arrive BIRDS, Page D Public Notice

Who pays for the party?

How can so many college kids afford to party during spring break? Plane tickets, hotel rooms, alcohol, food, marijuana, all cost a lot of money. Do their parent’s pay for it? Do they use their government Pell Grants? Their taxpayer-subsidized loans? And where do they get the time? Don’t they have to study? Don’t they have to write papers? Don’t they have work-study jobs? Millions of our young people believe they’re entitled to party — not just for a week in spring, but every weekend or even every night — for years. Most take five or six years to complete a four-year degree and then graduate with sixfigure debt and few if any job prospects in this “new-normal economy.” Remember the “Occupy” demonstrations? Many participants were students who spent lots of time protesting capitalism and holding up signs demanding their student loans be forgiven, not to mention trashing up whatever city they were “occupying.” How did they find time for that? College is hugely expensive now, and too few of us ask why. In the late Sixties and early Seventies, I was able to pay my own way through undergraduate

Much of what is learned there must be unlearned anyway to succeed in the real world outside bacchanalian dormitories, frat houses, and spring breaks of academia. An old friend from the WWII generation told me he got his undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa in the late Thirties and he was able to pay for a whole year’s tuition, books and fees by working six weeks in summer. Then, he became a navigator on a B-24 and got his graduate degrees on the GI Bill after the war. What has happened in the past four decades to drive up costs so much? Has a college education gotten so much better? I don’t think so. There’s plenty of evidence that it’s become much less rigorous. Students pay more these days — to

learn less — as for decades, tuition and fees have risen an average of 7.5% annually — far in excess of the cost of living and with little or no justification from the so-called intellectuals on our campuses. Many economists predict a trillion-dollar education bubble about to burst when millions stop making payments on their student loans. Will the academic establishment come tumbling down like Humpty Dumpty? Looks like a real possibility. As economist Herb Klein put it, something that can’t go on won’t. But what will replace it? Expansion of community colleges teaching real-world skills and online courses would be my guess. If you’re graduating from high school and you don’t have a firm idea about what you want to do, my advice would be: don’t go to college. Join the military or get a job until you know what you want for a career. If college will help you get there faster, fine — then go. You many learn, however, that on-thejob training will get you there more quickly and much less expensively. Tom McLaughlin of Lovell is a retired middle school U.S. History teacher.

Domestic violence and the elderly

Elder abuse is an issue, which has major implications for the wellbeing of older adults across the state, nation, and world, and also results in significant costs to society. There are a number of different forms that elder abuse can take which range from financial exploitation and neglect, to physical, sexual or emotional and psychological abuse of an older adult. A 2009 report from the Maine Elder Justice Training Partnership has stated that annually, the percentage of older adults who are victims of exploitation or abuse is estimated to be 5%. Among these cases, it is estimated that only about 84% are reported. Perpetrators of elder abuse

are often individuals who are known by the victim such as a significant other or adult child, but perpetrators can be of any background. Being a victim of elder abuse can have significant negative effects on an older adult. For instance, a 1998 study by Dr. Mark Lachs and colleagues in The Journal of The American Medical Association found that among those who are victims of elder abuse as opposed to those who are not, there was an increased risk of mortality over a 13year period. The human cost of elder abuse is great, but the financial cost is large as well. Elder abuse puts a significant strain on the nation’s social

profits, the private sector, and individual efforts. For instance, the Maine Council on Elder Abuse Prevention has recently been established to bring together a wide variety of individuals and organizations with an interest in elder abuse prevention to share information and better coordinate efforts. There are a number of ways that people can get involved in helping to raise

awareness about elder abuse and engage in prevention efforts. June 15 of each year is recognized as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, which is a day specially devoted to building understanding of the issue of elder abuse and its costs and bringing attention to efforts to fight elder abuse. To learn about how to get involved in these efforts, you can visit the website of the National Center on Elder Abuse at ncea.aoa. gov. This website is also a valuable resource for learning about the risk factors of elder abuse, warning signs, and other important information. Another option is to join a local Triad organization.

service, legal, and health care systems. In addition, one estimate from a 2009 report of the MetLife Mature Market Institute puts the annual cost of financial exploitation of older adults alone at $2.6 billion dollars. Although elder abuse is a significant challenge to address, many in Maine and nationally are working to combat elder abuse including government, educational institutions, non-

To find contact information for your local Triad organization, you can visit The National Association of Triads website at Information about state laws in Maine regarding elder abuse and ways to report elder abuse can be found at the State of Maine’s Office of Aging and Disability Services website ( dhhs/oads/).

Thank you

To The Editor: I would like to thank the trustees of the David and Carol Hancock Charitable Trust and the Stevens Brook PTA for sending the kindergarten and first grade students of Stevens Brook Elementary to the recent KinderKonzert at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center in Fryeburg. Because of their generosity, students were able to enjoy a wonderful educational experience provided by members of the Portland Symphony Orchestra. Thank you.

Reputation intact

To The Editor: I was very relieved to learn of the clearance of a colleague of mine who was publicly charged with theft. This was an alleged allegation, but besmirched the reputation of someone who has spent many hours volunteering in this community in different capacities. Those of us who worked and volunteered with him never believed he was capable of this charge. It isn’t in his character. A generous soul, I witnessed him many times helping those in need. Finally, his legal case (also to clear his name) was thrown out of court last week on totally frivolous charges. Sometimes, we witness real justice in our legal system even though it takes time and patience. You can’t put a price on saving your good reputation. Congratulations, Jeff. We always knew you were innocent of these unfair charges. Peter Bollen Bridgton

Protect the vulnerable

To The Editor: With all the problems that older adults and challenged individuals in this state face, it is the job of our legislators

to protect Maine’s most vulnerable populations. I am fully aware that this is a tough economy, but it is even tougher when one is frail, elderly, alone and in pain. Many seniors in Maine have been watching and are continuing to watch as their hard-earned Social Security benefits are debated over and over again in Washington. Any savings many at-risk Mainers may have had are long-gone in the face of soaring costs for utilities and food. In the last 10 years, hunger among older adults has increased by an unbelievable 80%. Social Security is the only source of income for one-third of Mainers age 65 and older. Many older Mainers rely upon every dime, every penny, to get them through each month. These are individuals who have no choices. They have nowhere else to turn. The state has alternatives, but these are Maine residents who do not. These are the residents who need for their voices to be heard and so I am writing this on their behalf: Please do not cut the Drugs for the Elderly or the Medicare Savings Program. These are the programs upon which many of our most at-risk Mainers rely to stay in their own homes and communities where we know they want to be. Vanessa McGrath AARP Maine Communications Volunteer Munjoy Hill Portland

Salmon Point

To The Editor: Sometime in the next month, voters will be asked to vote “yes” or “no” to sell Salmon Point campground. I have been in this business for over 50 years and I must agree that the campground is a jewel and a shantytown, as stated in previous letters to the editor. I put the blame for this on the people who previously ran things, and the selectmen and town manager. I sat in on several meetings a year ago and the board met with campers about going up on the site fees. One camper was a board member and wasn’t going to recuse himself from voting until someone confronted him. And we all know what happened next — very little increase in rates and back to the status quo. Our code enforcement officer has been put in the middle of the situation and

has had to go along with this mess, as he inherited it when he was hired. I propose that the Board of Selectman and the town manager (not the code enforcement officer) formulate a letter and send it to all the campers stating that at the end of the 2013 season that all additions and enclosures are to be removed, allowing for a platform next to the trailer and the use of a camper manufactured screen room and awning. Also allowed will be a small platform for a tent, the use of a storage shed like the Rubbermaid type, and no household refrigerators outside on the platform. Rates will go up to the $3,000 range and the boat docks will go up to $600 range. As to park models, if they have a regular household toilet then they are not allowed on the small lots. Now, if this is done, we will get back our campground and allow for improvements such as individual electric meters on seasonal sites and upgrades to the sewer system. This should get rid of the shantytown and give us back a nice looking park. I don’t know much about real estate values, but the money that has been suggested looks questionable to me as most of the camping part of the property is in the flood plain, i.e. two years ago it flooded and was closed down. So instead of looking at the short term and selling, do as I suggest and keep the only profit making part of our town’s investment. Please vote to keep the campground. Gerald M. Doucette Jr. Lakeside Pines Campground Bridgton

Kudos to the ladies

To The Editor: Driving through the drivethrough at Dunkin’ Donuts the other day, I had an epiphany. It dawned on me that so many of the businesses I patronize on a regular basis employ the best people. Impossible to name names so I will be more general. To the following Bridgton businesses, thank you for your kindness and service with a smile: Bridgton Veterinary Hospital, Paris Farmers Union, Dunkin’ Donuts, Key Bank, the Bridgton Post Office, Rite Aid, Wizard of Paws, Morning Dew and Hannaford. The male employees deserve kudos as well, but for the most part, these businesses employee mostly

woman…some quite young. I am especially impressed with the caliber of ladies working at D&D…always friendly and very hard working. For a group with probably an average age of 23, it’s nice to see young, friendly woman you can have a conversation with versus being treated like you owe them something (watch most any reality TV show). I board my pup at BVH every weekday while at work (to keep her from terrorizing my three-legged pit bull) and couldn’t be more pleased with how she is being treated, and how friendly all the girls (and Dr. Wheeler) are. We are so lucky to have such a pleasant and qualified group of people taking care of our animals right here in our town. I love going into PFU because I know I (and whichever of my three dogs I bring in) will get the best greeting; the best customer service; and usually a belly laugh or two. Recently, I put down one of my dogs. She meant the world to me. I adopted Trina and was told her immune system was in bad shape and her lifespan would likely not be a long one. I was so lucky to have her with me for seven years, 11 months. When the PFU girls learned that Trina was gone, I went in to find a beautiful plant and sympathy card signed by each of “my friends”…and hugs. I will always remember this kind gesture. To the ladies at Key Bank, Rite Aid, Wizard of Paws, Hannaford, Morning Dew and the post office…I cannot recall one day that I left your businesses feeling less than happy. You are all fine representations of the female gender. As I referred to above, what you see today (either on reality TV or in our own neighborhoods) are often self-involved and rude women. It is because of this that I feel the need to thank you all. There are more businesses in town, and it is rare that I leave any of them feeling like I was treated unfairly or unkindly. Therefore, more businesses could be added to the list above; however, the above list is strictly of those I frequent often. Thank you again to all of the women I consider friends in all the great businesses in Bridgton! P.S. …I love “my girls” at Naples Vet too! Deborah Cloutier

Eugenia S. Horton WEST PARIS — Eugenia Swanton Horton, 96, passed away on Friday, May 3, 2013. The youngest of two children, Eugenia was born in Dexter on July 30, 1916, to George Eugene Swanton and Alice May Larrabee. Genie graduated from N.H. Fay High School in 1934 and from Farmington Normal School in 1938. During the Depression years, she taught in elementary schools in Garland, Woolwich, Bath and Otisfield. She loved to tell stories about the one-room schools where she would teach all eight grades, often only one child per grade. Sometimes the youngest child would be only four years old, because both parents needed to work. On July 4, 1945, she married Clarence Eugene “Bob” Horton in Otisfield, in what they laughingly called their “shotgun wedding,” because a shotgun hung over the mantelpiece and the festivities included a shooting match. They moved to New Haven, Conn., where Bob wrapped up his career as a research engineer for Winchester Arms. In 1946, they moved to Otisfield. Their daughter Jean was born in 1947, and in July of 1948, they moved to East Waterford to establish Horton Ballistics. Genie was a stay-at-home mother for the next 15 years, during which time she was active in the North Waterford Congregational Church, choir, 4-H, the Rebekahs and civic events, such as canvasing for funds to build Stephens Memorial Hospital. People will remember her as always singing or humming quietly, wherever she was. She loved music, reading, history, bird hunting, children, her family and nature. A highlight of every spring was finding the first arbutus and the first lady slipper. The one thing in nature she hated was snakes. Her daughter loved to catch them in their field and bring them to her. In good teacher fashion, she would say, “Isn’t he beautiful? Now put him back where you found him so his mother can find him.” It was Genie’s loving way of getting the creature away without passing on her own fears. Jean remembers being in OHHS biology class before she realized that the snakes are on their own from the time they are hatched. In 1961, Genie decided to return to teaching. Over the next eight years, she taught and attended night and summer classes, to complete her fourth year of college, a requirement of Maine, graduating from Gorham State College in 1969. She spent several happy years teaching sixth, seventh and eighth grades in Hebron. Later on, she moved to the Guy E. Rowe School in Norway, where she taught until she retired in 1981. She was proud to be a member of Delta Kappa Gamma. Because of good friends in Waterford, she was able to stay in her beloved home until she was 90. She is survived by her daughter, Jean Eichhorn, of Nottingham, N.H.; her grandson, granddaughter and two great-granddaughters. Genie was predeceased by her parents; and her brother, George Coakley Swanton. Online condolences may be shared with her family at www. At Eugenia’s request, there will be no services. Donations in her memory may be made to the North Waterford Congregational Church. Arrangements are under the direction of Chandler Funeral Homes & Cremation Service, 45 Main Street, South Paris.

NORWAY — Pearl M. Chaplin, 96, passed away peacefully on May 6, 2013, at Norway Rehabilitation and Living Center, where she had been a resident for the past eight years. She was born June 12, 1916, in Greenwood City, the daughter of Ralph and Alice Herrick. Widowed at age 37, when her husband, Freeman, died as the result of an accident, she worked hard to provide for her two children. She worked as a housekeeper year round and in the fall she would also pick and pack apples. Other jobs included driving a school bus for students attending the Waterford Memorial School and mowing two cemeteries (with a push mower!) in Waterford. Before retiring at age 65, she was employed as a housekeeper at Norway Nursing Home. After retirement, she volunteered at the senior citizens meal site doing dishes (how she loved to do dishes!), went on bus trips and enjoyed going out to lunch whenever she had the chance. Her grandchildren remember fondly her knack for being able to recite every nursery rhyme ever written and she never forgot a birthday. Nothing was more important or precious to her than spending time with her family and her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She loved them with all of her heart. When great-grandchildren came along, she found room in her heart to love them just as much. She was thrilled when she got to meet her first and only great-greatgrandchild, Colby. “Grammie” was the best grandmother in the world and they will all miss her more than words can say. Pearl is survived by her son, Philip Chaplin of Waterford; a daughter, Marguerite Alberi of Norway; five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandson. She was predeceased by her grandson. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Pearl’s memory to Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills, P.O. Box 82, Norway, ME 04268. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, May 10, at Oxford Hills and Weston Funeral Services, 1037 Main Street, Oxford.

Robert F. Murphy Jr. LEWISTON — Robert F. Murphy Jr. “Bob” or “Murph,” 57, of Bridgton, passed away peacefully Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at Central Maine Medical Center after a long illness. Bob was born in Bedford, Mass. but grew up on Black Point Road in Scarborough, where he attended Scarborough schools. After his time in the Air Force, Bob began a career cooking in restaurants. He spent a year in Steamboat Springs, Colo., doing culinary work, then returned to Maine to work at John Martin’s restaurants before becoming a Chef at Michael’s Restaurant. It was here that he met his future wife to be, Cynthia Deering. Bob found interest in real estate, and soon owned and operated camps at Tomhegan Wilderness Resort on Moosehead Lake, Crescent Lake Cottages in Raymond, and his beloved home on Bear Trap Mountain in Bridgton. He loved the panoramic views, living in the clouds with the world at his finger tips. Bob had many interests including his love of dogs, particularly his Emjay. He was enthusiastic when it came to horticulture, maintaining beautiful organic gardens at his home year after year. Oftentimes music, especially the “Oldies,” could be heard from his deck overlooking the mountains. Bob was an avid reader. His house was chock full of books of all kinds. He enjoyed writing and discussing world events, politics, finances and sports. Though Bob enjoyed all these things what he loved most was to make people smile. With a twinkle in his eye and a smirk on his face his quick wit would make you laugh time after time. Bob had many, many friends near and far. He had many lifelong friends from childhood such as Steve Sprague, who was like a brother to him. They would say about each other “I don’t ever remember not knowing him.” Bob was predeceased by his parents, Robert F. Murphy Sr. and Teresa I. Murphy, as well as a very special aunt, Solange Croteau, who spent countless hours talking to him on the phone. Bob was extremely saddened by his aunt’s passing, and found a large void in his life. He leaves behind his wife Cynthia M. Murphy; a daughter Samantha L. Murphy; a son Robert F. Murphy III; and a granddaughter Layla L. Blais he adored. Also surviving are siblings Marie A. Murphy of Casco, Richard R. Murphy of Biddeford, Diane J. Snow of Limerick, Jo-Ann C. Murphy of Biddeford as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews. There will be a gathering of friends and family to celebrate Bob’s life Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 1 p.m. at his home on Bear Trap Mountain in Bridgton. Arrangements are under the care of Advantage Funeral & Cremation Services, 981 Forest Ave. Portland. Please visit to sign his guestbook. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to: American Lung Association, 122 State St., Augusta, ME 04330.


(Continued from Page D) property? Impervious surface is the amount of tar or cement driveway, sidewalks, buildings with roofs and any other surfaces that water cannot penetrate into the ground normally. In other words, how much rain comes off your roof, driveways and sidewalks and becomes runoff. Runoff, as you know, runs into rivers, streams and ponds. From now on, you will be taxed according to the amount of runoff is on your property. The more impervious surface, the larger the tax bill. This is a ploy to stop you from developing your property and keeping it more natural. Remember a few years ago, they tried to do that in Maine, but it was defeated. Because of this law and the way it is defined, it will push businesses and homeowners into the other counties that do not have the rain tax. You see what is going on here — population shift and that is one of many goals of UN Agenda 21. By leaving those counties free to reduce population and businesses growth, which in turn takes developmental and population pressure off of said counties and enables the land

to return to its natural state. You must read UN Agenda 21. This is where a lot of these mindless idiotic laws come from. Governor O’Malley has limited growth in rural counties, which UN agenda 21 is about. Governor O’Malley has increased property tax, sales tax and income taxes in those areas to push development into the other counties that are friendlier. As I stated above, this is otherwise known as government directed development. Governor O’Malley said, “We are not arguing for bigger government. We are arguing for more effective government, and also smarter investments.” What he is actually trying to say is he is in favor of government controls of land, people and population — which is exactly what UN Agenda 21 is all about. As you can see, we all must be vigilant and pay attention to what is happening in our towns. You need to watch key words such as sustainable growth, sustainable forest, wetlands and sustainable population. You also need to know what they mean by smart growth. There are a number of fancy words being used. It is up to you, me and all the other people in the world to question what these LETTERS, Page D



To The Editor: In its most recent edition, The Bridgton News provided extensive coverage of a meeting where Dr. Michael Coffman laid out his conspiracy thesis based on the United Nations’ Agenda 21 for a more sustainable planet. According to Coffman, and with the tacit approval of our governor who attended, Agenda 21 is nothing more than a mind-boggling plot by a nebulous group of arch conspirators (foreigners, leftwing politicians, intellectuals, educators, academics) to control not just the United States, but even the world, by

destroying God-given property rights. As a proponent of international conspiracy, Coffman places himself squarely in long tradition of American “exceptionalism,” the conviction that Americans are a chosen people, a “City on a Hill,” that evil forces constantly seek to destroy. In the 17th century New England, Puritans exiled or executed all who seemed to threaten this self-image. The American Revolution and independence nationalized this ideal as a God-favored nation, but enhanced the fear of evil forces plotting its destruction. This time the conspirators were known as the Bavarian Illuminati, an ill-defined collection of foreigners, “enlightened” atheists, rationalists, determined to destroy all religion and morality. Being credited with fomenting the French Revolution, they were now assumed to be seeking to undermine the new American nation. In the election of 1800, Federalists tried unsuccessfully to smear Jeffersonians with being sympathetic to the Illuminati. Skipping over several centuries of political/religious hysteria over the threats to the American ideal posed by Masons, Mormons, Catholics, especially the Irish, we come to the infamous Joe McCarthy of the Red Scare fame during the 1950s. To McCarthy, the real Communist threat to America did not come from China or Russia, but from within American society: liberal politicians (chiefly Democrats), writers, and intellectuals whom he vehemently denounced. Finally, even Republicans, notably Maine’s Margaret Chase Smith, realized the real threat to America was not Communism, but Joe McCarthy himself. In this long historical context, Dr. Michael Coffman illustrates the old saying that “History does repeat itself.” He represents the historical conviction Americans still

(Continued from Page D) That is why I will charge only a million dollars per student, and will even provide special discount rates for those who can silent-read. The smart ones shouldn’t be so difficult to teach and, in fact, with my faculty, most of whom are cartoon characters, a few of them students may end up doing some teaching themselves. But I guarantee everyone will get a diploma, and maybe a free t-shirt with the college’s name on it, at graduation. That’s more commitment than you’ll get from some of your so-called “better” universities (2). Since the point of a college education came to be to “get a good job,” the cost of a year at university has risen

steadily. The bargain has been “Pay us now, and somebody else will pay you even more later.” There used to be room in the middle class for middle management types, and even for people who wanted to use their educations in ways that actually helped people, and not corporations, which only the Supreme Court thinks are people. Recently, though, the world economy has caught up to the college-educated American and pinned him in a headlock, and so a worker in India now will undertake a decent-paying technical job for a salary far cheaper than any American worker would consider. In fact, for every good American job opening posted there are, on average, 3,186 applicants, some of

(Continued from Page D) fancy words really mean. How is this going to affect us and future generations? Citizens of every town should be going to planning board meetings, scrutinize every land ordinance being put forth and any land use ordinance being voted on. We must have a watchful eye on what is going on. Sure we need some land for recreational purposes to be set aside, but the question is how much? A good example of this is the Loon Echo Land Trust. How much land do they really need? Are they going overboard? So why are they grabbing so much land and putting it in a preserve? These and many other questions should be asked. If UN Agenda 21 gets a foothold, there is no stopping it. Just look how the Supreme Court modified the eminent domain laws over the years. So could UN Agenda 21 be instituted and modified over the years and become more powerful than ever. More powerful than the eminent domain law. Richard E. Cross Naples

BLAINE HOUSE RECEPTION ATTENDEES — In recognition of National Nurses Week, Jill Rollins (left), RN, Acute Care director, and Ann Kurnick, RN, inpatient nurse, attended the Blaine House, Augusta, reception and tea for Maine’s nurses on Tuesday, May 7. An annual event sponsored by the governor during this special recognition week, Bridgton Hospital nominates one nurse each year to attend the day with their manager. The theme this year for the event was “Delivery Quality and Innovation in Patient Care” and it was sponsored by the Coalition of Maine Nursing Organizations. retain of being a God-favored people, a “City on a Hill,” against which are arrayed the forces of evil, now exemplified by the UN’s Agenda 21. In his view, we must be entirely free to do with our private property whatever we wish, even to the point of denuding the land and destroying the planet. Let’s hope that history really does repeat itself and that Dr. Michael Coffman will follow the path of the Illuminati, Joe McCarthy, and their ilk into historical oblivion. As a nation, we can then concentrate on the real threat to American democracy, corporate domination of our political system. Jim Leamon Casco

Calvin grows up…sort of (Continued from Page D) driveway, eagerly awaiting a small microscope (thank you, Captain Crunch) while the wipers played back and forth against a discouraging rain. I suppose I was a nerdy kid, and my wife will tell you that not much has changed. “Marry a nerd,” she says. “They make the best husbands.” I take that as a compliment, I guess. With spring finally here, my nerdy little mind recently turned once again to all things dirt. Suffering from nagging pH problems over

the last few years, I put the lime to the raised beds in our vegetable garden not long ago, but after kneeling and scooping up a soil sample and crumbling it in my hand and sniffing it, I determined that something was still missing. I was a man in much need of organic matter. After intense Googling, I found what I wanted: a government-approved, highlyengineered product made to exacting specifications from all-natural by-matter whose base material was…well, never mind. And so I called

and ordered. Instead of a stack of Choco-Asteroids box tops, I needed a wad of cash this time, but just like my little Calvin self of old, there I stood last Saturday morning, right in the middle of our little country road, staring south, jumping up and down while frantically awaiting the rumble of the truck that would signal the arrival of five yards of composted municipal bio-solids (with organic binder). Ohboyohboyohboy! All I needed was a striped beanie with a propeller on top.

them qualified (3). A lot of highly-technical jobs do go begging, however — and that’s because all Americans plan to earn lots of money, they just don’t want to have to learn anything to prepare to earn lots of money. That’s where the colleges come in. Around 1998 or so, institutions of higher education stopped teaching real courses and began setting aside their freshman years for Remedial Reading, Fifth Grade Math and Pretend Science (4).

Springtime birds

(Continued from Page D) here in May from their winter homes. Jon Dunn and Kimball Garrett write in A Field Guide to Warblers of North America, that more than half of the New World (Western Hemisphere) warblers, 115 species, can be found north of Mexico, and the greatest diversity of breeding warblers in North America occurs in the northeast. At least 36 species of warblers have been seen in Maine, and most of those species breed within the state. Males arrive first to claim nesting territories, which they do with glorious displays of color and song, but after the COME SEE THE NEW LOOK — at the Bridgton Community Center, now that its females arrive the pairs settle walls have been freshly-painted and other cosmetic upgrades done. Getting ready to down quietly to the business serve at a recent dinner there are ever-faithful volunteers, from left, Cheryl McLaughlin, of nesting, and they are harder Gail Hastings and Gail Dumont.

for bird watchers to see. During May, local bird watchers converge on Brownfield Bog, because its varied habitat is a magnet for migrating birds. Birds who winter in the southern United States have a relatively shorter migration, and we expect to see them early in May. Yellowrumped warblers, palm warblers, and black-and-white warblers have already arrived. The blue-headed vireo, warbling vireo, yellow-throated vireo, Baltimore oriole and rose-breasted grosbeak are also here. Over the next couple of weeks, the neotropical migrants will be coming in, after making a long migration from Central America and

(Continued from Page D) been following similar programs with marked success. Here in Bridgton we have had a series of disappointments and only some small success. To those who have been in contact with possible leads for bringing in an industry, the absence of suitable manufacturing space here has on several occasions constituted the major obstacle. News Item Excerpt: The Best Value Manufacturing Co., which has been making an attempt to get back into production since the latter part of January, has reached the decision to throw in the towel and will cease all operations here next week according to Ben Furman, spokesman for mill owner Max Furman. An inability to secure skilled personnel and failure to operate profitably were given as the chief reason for closing the mill doors. The owners were unable to attract weavers

and spinners in sufficient quantity to keep production up and the employment of help from out-of-town did not prove practical from the workers standpoint. Notice: Last Friday’s meeting of the Bridgton Historical Society at the First Congregational Church vestry was attended by some 50 members and guests interested in the town’s past. Highlighting the meeting were papers read by Mrs. Louis Gibbs Shorey and Mrs. Dorothy Sanborn. Mrs. Shorey delivered a very important documentary account of the Gibbs family, important in the woolen mill industry of Bridgton. This paper will be published in the NEWS at a later date. Mrs. Sanborn gave an interesting history of the Ridge from the time of the first settler, James Flint, in 1795, and told stories of families in every house from the Ingalls Farm, now the home of Arthur Sanborn,

South America. The air is soft today, and clean smelling, and it feels good to sit in the sun watching for birds. This morning, the first pine warbler of the season showed up on our big pine tree, and right now I am craning my neck, trying to see a little bird who is flitting around in the pine branches high overhead. I can glimpse only a greenish back, a whitish belly, and a thin little bill. It looks like it might be a warbler, but this bird does not want to be seen, or identified. Maybe it will move on, or maybe it will stay around the yard. In the meantime, I will watch, listen, and enjoy this precious, brief, migration season.

1954 in ‘The News’ Trying to solve Syria succeeds in bringing down Assad, his diehard troops will continue the struggle, perhaps extending it by various means into Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and elsewhere. Meanwhile, the Moslem rebel extremists will have a role in the replacement regime in Damascus. In my view, the wise course for the United States would be to sit down with Russians, regional players (Saudi Arabia, Iran and others) and work out a scheme for power sharing between acceptable rebels and respectable regime stalwarts. That would mean sending Assad back to his former ophthalmology practice and the friends of al-Qaeda to a distant quiet mosque. It would also certainly require continuing cooperation of outsiders and U.N. peacekeeping troops. An attempt at a peaceful resolution might fail or it might partially succeed. There are risks in whichever choice is made. Better to take the one that promises an end to the fighting if not victory for either side.  Better to try to save as many Syrian lives as possible. (Continued from Page D) Henry Precht is a retired he continued. Foreign Service Officer. “Then, we really did go fishing,” he said, the excitement changing the pitch of his voice. “And, I caught…” the boy paused for effect, “…a rainbow bass,” he said. I had been eavesdropping y on the boys talking at the tr s   ti n in View De ta n Naples Public Library; and u o M at us this new species of fish caught my ear.

(Continued from Page D) supported the French and others willing to commit forces; • Use drones to take out terrorists and otherwise help the new Yemeni regime; • Wage full-scale war as in Afghanistan and Iraq. In actual (as far as we have been told) fact, we are already conducting these activities in Syria — short of combat. The United States offers nonlethal aid to secular rebels, approves and assists Saudi Arabia and Qatar who furnish cash and weapons to rebels — including the al Qaeda-affiliated extremists we call terrorists. We encourage Turkey and Jordan, which help out in neighborly ways. And we levy sanctions and display our PR and diplomatic skills at the United Nations. So far, none of this has made much difference. The Russians and Iran (the real enemy of war hawks) continue to support President Assad while we demand his departure. A new factor has entered the Washington calculus: Israel asserts Syria has used deadly nerve gas (CW) in several battles. U.S. intelligence has low to moderate confidence that the reports are true. Obama, having in mind Bush’s flawed search

for nukes in Iraq, wants the “true facts.” War hawks scorn his doubts and urge a decisive — short of ground troops — U.S. engagement on the side of the rebels (only the good guys to be sure). Hawks say the president drew a red line against chemical weapon use and now he must meet his commitment to maintain America’s credibility. What is to be done? Send in troops to seize CW stocks, or planes to bomb depots? A lot of people would die from the fallout. Get more actively involved (weapons for rebels, no-fly zone) to overthrow the regime? Polls show that most Americans oppose getting into another fight. It could drag on like Iraq and Afghanistan. Suppose intelligence agencies decide the CW reports are false, designed to suck us into the conflict? That would leave Obama in a war of words with Israel and most congressional Republicans. Plainly, Obama is going to have to undergo a backbone transplant. He will have to make a hard decision, something he has avoided for many months, something that could consume valuable political capital and hurt him in the media. In the region, if our active intervention

Blynn Davis announced that a permanent headquarters for the Historical Society has been offered by the Sons of Veterans who are willing to turn over their hall on Depot Street to the Society. This summer marks the Sesquicentennial of the start of the U.S. Civil War. The Bridgton Historical Society, along with many other museums (including our neighbors at the Rufus Porter Museum), will be marking this anniversary with an exhibit of the Society’s Civil War collection and extended museum hours — part of the State of Maine’s Civil War Trail. We will also be hosting a Civil War encampment at Narramissic on the weekend of July 27-28, which will allow visitors to see the ways in which soldiers lived during this momentous period of American history.

He searched briefly for the perfect word or one that he had heard used most often to capture the description of a perch. “Spiny,” he concluded. This conversation, which was being held by two boys whose combined ages amounted to a decade, rang a bell of similarity to discussions that men in their 60s still find interesting. Fishing tales are told at an early age in Maine. Anchors away. On the first day of May, the sun beckoned me so I drove to Pleasant Lake via Mayberry Hill Road. A boat approached the shore. The two men — who were possibly retired — had been fishing during a

midweek morning. They said they got to the lake around 9 a.m., which they referred to as “late morning.” For some reason, standing there on the shore with the sun shimmering on the waveless water, and the shape and color of every rock under it so clear, I conveyed the story of the two boys’ conversation. The rainbow bass got a big laugh, and a quick correction. “It’s a rainbow trout,” said the man who had climbed out of the boat first. The other gentleman was holding the rope of the boat, and took a moment to join in with a clever quip. “Like any good fisherman, he has to remember to get his lies straight,” he said.
