HISTORIC MOMENT — Naples and the Lake Region area celebrated the grand opening of the new Bay of Naples Bridge last Friday. Festivities included speeches and a parade, which

included antique cars, as well as the Lake Region High School marching band. See more photos and stories inside this week’s edition. (Photo courtesy of Liz Moseley of Naples)

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — Two female friends — raised and schooled in Naples, and now retired and wintering ‘away’ — braved this nation’s airports to return to their town of origin for Friday’s festivities. Judy Macdonald and Marilyn Broadhead booked their plane trips north earlier than usual so they could be in town in time

newly installed fire suppression pipes. “I usually come home in June,” Macdonald said. “I flew up earlier ‘cause I’ll never see another one. I’ll never see another bridge built here.” She recalled the small-town gathering when construction was completed on the Swing Bridge in 1954. “Oh, it was nothing like this,” she smiled, turning her atten-

Out with the old, in with the new bridge for the Bay of Naples Bridge ribbon-cutting ceremony. That afternoon as temperatures tipped in at 70 degrees with a really pleasant lake breeze, Macdonald sported a patriotic outfit that might have been saved for Fourth of July revelries. But, Macdonald’s special occasion clothes were freshly unpacked from her suitcase because she had been determined not to miss mid-May’s

opening of the new bridge. “I just got in last night,” Macdonald said as she exchanged yet another happy ‘Hello!’ with locals who knew her. West of the two women, a crowd of a few thousand people gathered on the concrete arch bridge for the first time ever. Behind the multitude, water sprayed both forcefully and gracefully into the sky. That theatrical element showcased the

tion to the vintage cars crossing over that rickety sea-foam-green bridge. “My nieces (Debbie Hansen and Connie Eldridge) kept bugging me to come home for this,” she said, adding that relatives provided her with the details of every ceremonious activity planned for the ribbon-cutting day. Macdonald said the moment she made up her mind to attend

Casco re-awards revaluation bid By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO — Public participation was strictly limited to 10 minutes by the time elected officials had tackled some of the tough and emotional issues on the agenda, and the clock’s hands lined up at 9:40 p.m. However, this town’s residents had a liberal amount of time to talk — because the Casco Board of Selectmen spent just shy of an hour in a closed door executive session. At the beginning of the evening, Chairman Barbara York cited executive session pursuant to 1M.R.S.A. subsection 405(6) (E), which pertains to rules regarding contract agreement issues. Technically, contracts are regarded like employment, and by executive session policy are treated the same way as personnel issues — not to be discussed in public. The vote to move into executive session was, 3-2, with Selectmen Mary-Vienessa Fernandes and Ray Grant opposed. On Tuesday, when the board emerged from its executive session, some of its members had re-thought their votes that last month awarded the revaluation bid to a company that in the eyes of many community members

had not done the job property owners had hoped for. In a turn of events, the board voted to make null and void the contract with John E. O’Donnell and Associates. In the same motion, the board backed the hiring of Vision Government Solutions for the property revaluation bid as well as a oneyear contract as the town’s assessing firm. According to a spread sheet of the bid prices from four companies, Vision offered to do the property assessment job for $218,500. (This amount is almost $70,000 less than O’Donnell’s bid.) The room broke into applause over the board’s reversal of decision. People said they favored the lower cost, as well as starting fresh with a firm that did not have a contentious past involving local landowners. The new vote was, 3-2, with Chairman York and Selectman Paul Edes sticking by their guns — going with the firm for which they had originally cast their vote. Last month, the board majority had awarded both the revaluation job and a five-year contract to O’Donnell. Tuesday night’s turn of events may very well have been BID, Page A

School budget passes

Voters in Bridgton, Casco, Naples and Sebago went to the polls Tuesday and approved, or validated, the $26,119,080 School Administrative District 61 budget passed by those who attended last week’s budge meeting at Lake Region High School in Naples. Voters in Sebago turned down the validation, with 73 in favor and 84 opposed, for an 11-vote difference. The results, by town, are as follows: Bridgton — 189 Yes, 73 No Casco — 107 Yes, 62 No Naples — 137 Yes, 49 No Sebago — 73 Yes, 84 No Overall, the combined vote of the four member towns was 506 in favor and 268 opposed, or a difference of 238 votes.

the bridge unveiling, she phoned her longtime friend, Marilyn Broadhead, who has a home in Arizona. From there, the two women sealed their plans. During the ceremony, the two friends were among a handful of people who took the walk (or jog or run) back down to the old bridge to see up close the first parade of vehicles that passed over it. Then, they hiked COMMUNITY, Page A

Bigger police presence?

UNINHABITABLE, YET RENTED — In an August 2010 small claims court, a judge ruled this house at 16 Walker Street to be “unfit for human habitation.” Yet its owner, Nelson Henry, has had at least three tenants living there since the court ruling, according to neighbor Paulina Dellosso. Bridgton Code Enforcement Officer Robbie Baker has not been able to get in touch with Henry in order to get permission to inspect the building for code violations, according to Selectman Bernie King. The current tenant, Dana Perry, who moved in two weeks ago with several others, said the house needs some minor repairs, but “it’s nothing I can’t handle.” Dellosso said sewage from inadequate plumbing is draining onto her neighbor’s property, and that Henry should be taking care of maintenance issues himself, and not have his tenants “do his dirty work.” Henry, a dentist living in Raymond, said it’s hard being an absentee landlord. “I’m just not around to fix every little thing,” he said.

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer HARRISON — Does the Town of Harrison want to spend just over $100,000, in order to have both a full-time deputy and a summer deputy? Voters will answer that question and two others via secret ballot, when they go to the polls on Tuesday, June 12, which will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. that day. The town has had the services of both law enforcement officers — the fulltime deputy and the summertime officer, in the recent past. However, the selectmen said that, due to citizens’ concerns regarding the overall cost of policing here, they would let voters make the decision as to whether or not to have both.

Group targets substandard housing

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer The same group of residents who banded together to win passage of a Disorderly Housing Ordinance for Bridgton are now targeting the problem of substandard housing and dangerous buildings. The Bridgton Community Crime Watch Committee met May 16 to begin working on a new ordinance that would give local municipal officials more power to go after property owners who habitually violate state laws governing building standards and landlord-tenant rules. In so doing, they have the strong support of at least two selectmen — Bernie King and Woody Woodward — as well as Planning Board member Ken Murphy and Health Officer

Faye Daley. King, Murphy and Daley attended the meeting, and Woodward e-mailed words of support. The crime watch group realized some time ago that the Disorderly Housing Ordinance, enacted in 2006, only addresses one half of the problem — and that disreputable property owners and landlords also need to be held accountable. “I’m tired of seeing landlords get away with abusing and using people — people who are economically disadvantaged,” said BCCW member Paulina Dellosso at the meeting. “It seems our hands are tied because we don’t have a local ordinance.” Crime Watch member Kenton Courtois said he’s frustrated that it appears what state laws do apply regarding build-

ing codes and dangerous buildings are not being enforced. “We file these complaints again and again and nothing happens, and we’re tired of it,” he said. He said he’s made many complaints about trash on the lawn and excessive noise at a rental property next door to his home on Fowler Street. Two landlords, Nelson Henry and Anthony Numberg, were repeatedly cited by the 15 or so people attending as being

the worst offenders. Henry owns fivr residential rental buildings, at 16 Walker Street and 37, 396, 447 and 533 Main Street. Numberg owns rental housing at 33 Wayside Avenue, 3 Fowler Street and 342 Main Street. Crime Watch members say most of these addresses are the source of constant complaints and police calls, as well as complaints of no heat and unsafe living conditions to HOUSING, Page A

Police coverage (Continued from Page A) ing warrant (Articles 6 through 32) will be taken up at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13 at the Harrison Elementary School. Articles 4 and 5 have been placed on the referendum ballot, at the request of Edwin Rolfe Jr., who had offered to gather a petition, instead. Article 4 asks, “Shall the Town raise and appropriate $83,280 for a full-time deputy?” Article 5 asks, “Shall the Town raise and appropriate $20,093 for a summer deputy?” Both the Harrison Board of Selectmen and Harrison Budget Committee are recommending a “yes” vote on Article 4 — to maintain having a fulltime deputy, while both are recommending a “no” vote on Article 5 — not to raise and appropriate $20,093 for a summer deputy. As to why they are recommending a “yes” vote to raise and appropriate $83,280 for a fulltime deputy, the selectmen have stated in writing on the annual town meeting warrant: “Article 4 & 5 have been placed on the ballot at the request of a citizen. While this is not typically the manner uses to vote on a fiscal budget item, the Board recognizes it has been an ongoing topic of debate at the annual town meeting. The ballot provides more people the opportunity to vote on the topic of policing. The Board recommends maintaining the fulltime Deputy as the only policing alternative available at this time.” Yet, the citizen initiative placed ballot questions regarding police coverage also ask if a summer deputy is needed. Explaining their reason for recommending a ‘no’ vote on Article 5 to raise and appropriate $20,093 for a summer deputy, the selectmen stated, “Harrison’s population increases significantly in the summer months. For a number of years, Harrison has utilized a summer officer for an additional 40 hours a week. Based on citizen concerns regarding the cost of policing, the Board (of Selectmen) and Budget Committee while recommending a ‘no’ vote, are leaving the decision to each voter to determine if the additional 40 hours per week coverage is necessary.” Police coverage adequate? Near the end of the selectmen’s meeting on May 10, Town Manager Bud Finch said that he has been in his post for a year now, and has had the opportunity to look at the current police coverage the town is receiving from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. “This past year, I’ve had a lot of time to look at it (police coverage) — we’re at the remote end of the (Cumberland) county — these are changing times,” said Finch. Finch said the questions in both Articles 4 and 5 are simple, yet he pointed out that “the explanation is much more complex for Harrison and the move by the selectmen to put the question on the ballot as requested is in hopes of a larger turnout to vote on the question than the typical turnout at an annual town meeting.” Asked for his views on the topic of police coverage here, Finch stated, “This is a very complex question for a town like Harrison and is more driven by the limited affordable options for a rural community located on the outskirts of the county.”   According to Finch, there are three basic ways to look at how one would vote on these articles, “Is it about money and any amount is too much,” “Is it about making sure we are getting our money’s worth,” or is it about, “we don’t like or want police coverage.” “My view is that Harrison needs a level of policing service and it is my job to bring to the board, and ultimately the town, the options available to provide the necessary level of effective, efficient and affordable service,” stated Finch. Finch pointed out that, in Maine, there are three levels of policing services available — state, county and local.  “All have their values, pros and cons, for the communities they serve,” said Finch. “With Harrison’s location, the best and most affordable solution at this time is with the (Cumberland County) Sheriff’s Office.  We need to continue working with them and on issues, as they arise.”  Currently, Harrison contracts with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office for 40 hours per week of coverage by a fulltime deputy. The summertime deputy position provides another 40 hours per week of law enforcement coverage. “The key issue for Harrison today is flexibility of hours to provide the diverse coverage the current contract does not allow,” Finch said. “This is a complex issue, due to the way contract service is provided by the Sheriff’s Office, but it can be accomplished. The second issue is having the service be more of a ‘serve and protect function’ than a ‘reactionary to a call service.’  A contract that better utilizes the contract time in a manner one would expect from their local municipal department is necessary and can also be accomplished.”  Finch said further, “Harrison would be covered by the Sheriff’s Department, with or without the contract for fulltime and summer deputy coverage, but only in a reactionary manner. Having the contract service provides us with the ability to have a more local ‘serve and protect service,’ by having the deputy assigned to Harrison for a set number of hours.” “If the voters in the town choose to vote against the contract coverage then Harrison’s coverage will be the same as other towns without contract service, ‘reactionary to the call,’” said Finch. “A tough choice, but one for which the Board of Selectmen, the Budget Committee and myself believe a ‘yes’ vote and continued pursuit of improvements is critical.” Other secret ballot articles Other secret ballot articles being voted upon at the polls on June 12 include: Article 2 — to vote on two people for selectman for three years; two planning board members to serve for three years; one appeals board member to serve for five years; and one School Administrative District 17 school board director to serve for three years. Article 3 asks, “Shall an ordinance entitled “Town of Harrison Fireworks Ordinance” be enacted?

The town asked Maine Municipal Association to provide an opinion on whether an affordable housing local preference ordinance would be legally defensible, but “They wouldn’t touch it,” said Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz.

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer The Mount Henry Brewing Company’s proposed microbrewery and taproom, to be located at the former curtain shop and ice cream stand property at 48 Portland Road, began being reviewed by the Bridgton Planning Board, this week. The planning board reviewed all of the 24 performance standards under the Town of Bridgton Site Plan Review Ordinance, deciding to postpone reviewing those performance standards that pertain to surface water drainage and protection from undue water pollution until the town’s code enforcement officer, Robbie Baker, returns from vacation next week. Planning Board Chairman Steve Collins noted that the board members do not have the expertise to determine whether or not those two performance standards have been met, but that the CEO does. Less than a dozen residents attended the May 22 planning board meeting, with most coming from the neighborhood that surrounds the proposed brewery and taproom — those who live on Maple Street and Smith Avenue. Co-applicant Angie Roux apologized that her business partner Robert Prindall could not attend Tuesday night’s planning board meeting, noting that the soon-to-be father was at “the last Lamaze class that happens before her (his wife’s) due date.”

Bridge project facts

• The bridge has replaced the Naples’ Swing Bridge that was built in 1954. • The new bridge has a span of 80 feet as it crosses over Chute River. By comparison, the old bridge was 93-feet long. • The new bridge has a waterway clearance of 65 feet. By comparison, the old bridge had a waterway clearance of 30 feet. • The new arch bridge was designed by Maine Department of Transportation Engineer Jeff Folsom. The design type is called a closed spandrel concrete arch. • The peak of the arch will be 12-feet and six-inches from the water. • Below the bridge, a 15-foot-wide walkway will have a clearance of eight feet. • On both sides of the bridge, there will be five-foot-wide sidewalks. Eight-foot-wide shoulders will separate vehicles and pedestrians. • The entire project — including bridge construction and Causeway renovation — is estimated to cost $9.2 million. The cost of the concrete bridge alone is around $2 million. (Sources include a 2009 document entitled, The Naples Bay Bridge and Causeway public meeting fact sheet and Maine Department of Transportation Resident Engineer Craig Hurd.) — D.D.

Town Manager: ‘Thank you to all’ Editor’s note: The following is from a speech that Naples Town Manager Derik Goodine wrote and planned to present at the reception on the Village Green following the bridge opening ceremony last Friday. As people approached the Village Green, they were conversing and introducing themselves so Goodine decided he would not deliver the speech at that time, but instead send it to The News as a thank you to all who attended the historic event. By Derik Goodine Naples Town Manager Thank you, to everybody who attended this historic event this past Friday. We had some great speeches earlier in the day, and thank you to Deputy Commissioner Bruce Van Note, Rep. Rich Cebra, CRC Chairman Bob Neault, and Selectman Robert Caron for their speeches. Who would have thought I would be looking out at so many faces this past Friday, and seeing them altogether, united and celebrating the opening of our new beautiful bridge. It was a long time in the making, and it wasn’t without its problems in the beginning, although that seems so far in the past now. I think we have created something that we are very proud of. When we started this project, many of us were worried about the hill that might be where the bridge is. Some of us worried more about the hill we would have to climb to garner support from the masses for this project, in order to get to the grand opening day. After all, we have a committee and subcommittees made up of a myriad of people with different opinions. Could all these people come to consensus on what the bridge and Causeway would look like, and would we be united in our support when it was completed was my biggest worry as this project began. Any fear about public acceptance is now allayed. Hundreds of people came to the historic opening event. The scene was quite remarkable as I walked from my office down to the bridge. We made it over that proverbial hill rather easily, and the hill that is where the bridge is, isn’t bad at all and blends in really well with the Causeway. You feel a majestic beauty from the top of the bridge as you look out over the lakes and the Causeway. The Naples Causeway Renovation Committee did an amazing job of coming together to work on behalf of the town to make this the best project possible. Thank you so much for your dedication to this project. I can say that this committee restored my faith in community and collaboration, and operated at all times with respect for its fellow members. I don’t think any of us have everything that we wanted, but I think what we do have, we are all proud of. This wasn’t just about building a bridge, it was about mending the community to bring sides together, and this past Friday the CRC felt that success. I want to also thank Naples Main Street where many of

the ideas incorporated into the Causeway project were born out of their visioning of a renovated Causeway, which started seven years ago. I also want to thank them for their help in the development of the TIF District, which is now paying for the town improvements we are making. I also want to thank the Naples Garden Club for their work identifying trees and plantings that will survive our harsh winters. I want to thank the Naples Board of Selectmen for their leadership on this project, and the Naples taxpayers for their support and patience during the project. I thank our business community for their support, as well. I want to thank my Administrative Assistant/ Secretary Barbara McDonough for being there for me, and letting me vent at times, and for her hard work on this project too. I am looking forward to her return to the office soon enough. I want to thank Nancy Hanson, Kathy Sweet and Barbara McDonough for their work on organizing the reception, which followed the parade, and Vicki Toole and Lake Region Caterers for the making the reception first class. I want to thank Wyman and Simpson, Kim Suhr and Jeff Simpson especially, and their crew and all of their subcontractors for their great work and collaboration on this project. I especially want to thank the Maine Department of Transportation, Lisa and Eric, and especially, Craig Hurd, a fellow Steeler fan I might add, for putting up with myself and the rest of us that are constantly visiting them, and for answering our questions. If I had a game ball, it would go to Craig. I also want to thank anyone I am forgetting. Everybody that has been involved in this project deserves a great “thank you.” Friday was a very historic day for the Town of Naples, and I am so glad that so many people turned out to celebrate it and be part of history. Photos from this day will surely be displayed at some point in our new town museum and be seen and talked about for generations. While the new bridge is a bridge to our future, the museum is a bridge to our past. Please think about joining the Naples Historical Society to help preserve our history and our new museum. The bridge grand opening is only the beginning though. The project is far from over. We have green spaces to create and fill. We have fountains to create and build. Public art to create, and perhaps a clock tower to build. We have fundraising to do! The most important thing though is to keep dreaming and be creative. The new bridge is a marvel. Our goal is to transform the Causeway into a marvel, as well. It will be important, as we move forward on the rest of this project, to continue the excitement and watch as we THANKS, Page A

DAY TO REMEMBER — Naples ushered in a new era last Friday with the grand opening of the Bay of Naples Bridge. To celebrate the occasion, the town held a parade featuring antique cars as well as music performed by the Lake Region High School band, depicted here in pictures taken by Jim Medcalf of Bridgton. On left, Causeway Renovation Committee member Barbara Donough holds her month-old daughter, Reine Jo Beckwith, during the opening ceremony. Naples Town Manager Derik Goodine wielded the magic scissors and cut the ribbon to officially open the bridge. The old swing bridge was removed Tuesday night, putting the stamp on a new beginning at the Causeway.

(Continued from Page A) back up to the new bridge to be there for the onset of the parade of wheeled wonders that began with a 2012 azure-colored jeep. Macdonald was particularly excited because a relative of hers was among the people seated in that picture perfect automobile. Both women agreed how nice it was to see all their old friends again — all in one place. “This is nice,” Macdonald said, waving at another face from a familiar community, and smiling broadly. CRC Chairman Bob Neault predicted that one (plenty of smiles) when he provided his speech as part the official opening. “Today, you will see lots of smiling faces,” Neault said. “When you look out across Long Lake and Brandy Pond, you will know how much thought and work went into that bridge and the Causeway,” he said. Friday brought with it an interval in which to bask in the glory of a new bridge. It was also an opportunity to commemorate the collaboration between citizens, the state transportation department, and the general contractors and subcontractors that made the project what it was. State Representative Rich

Cebra said in his speech that one recent morning, he had been sipping his morning tea and glancing over bridge notes he had written. He found himself surprised that his memorabilia of paperwork dated back to 2006 — when those discussions about funding the project first began. “We have done a phenomenal thing for the Lakes Region,” he said, adding that every person involved should be proud of the part they played in the project. But, the real pride, he said, was the finished product that people were beholding and standing upon. Then, Cebra sent an invitation out to the crowd, who heeded his words before he had even articulated them, “Enjoy this beautiful day on your new bridge.” The concrete arch bridge, which was designed by MDOT Engineer Jeff Folsom, has an 80 ft. span and offers boaters a 12.2-foot by 30-foot passage as well as providing landlubbers with a 15-foot wide walkway under the bridge with an eight -foot clearance. According to the MDOT Deputy Commissioner Bruce A. Van Note, in a statement that he most likely meant figuratively as well as literally, the Bay of Naples Bridge “is something bigger than yourself.”

REFLECTION — Jim Brake of Naples captured this reflection of Causeway construction workers.

Residents remark on bridge opening By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — On Friday, folks experienced the bliss and necessity of brand-new infrastructure and pristine pavement. After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, that first flow of traffic began to travel over the Bay of Naples Bridge and the slightly altered section of Route 302 that crosses it. The project — six years in the making, if the publicinput and funding stages are included — had its groundbreaking in October 2010.

A month earlier, the Maine Department of Transportation (MDOT) project had been awarded to general contractor Wyman and Simpson, Inc. The primary goal was to replace the 58-year-old swing bridge. Another aspect of the project was to re-create the Causeway so it had the allure of a destination zone. “Now, people will stop because they want to, not because they are stopped in traffic on the Causeway,” MDOT Deputy Commissioner Bruce Van Note said during a speech at the ribbon-cutting

ceremony. According to MDOT Resident Engineer Craig Hurd, the cost of the concrete arch bridge alone is about $2 million. The entire project has been estimated at $9.2 million, he said.

Raffle winner waxes nostalgic, claims clasp to change lie, I was adamantly opposed,” Connie Eldridge said, adding an exclamation mark to the end of her Tuesday night text message. “I was one of the Save the Bridge committee members. Even my kids and their friends (would be) out there one Saturday morning with signs that read, ‘Honk to save the bridge’ and ‘If it ain’t got that swing, then it don’t mean a thing.’ ” she said.

“Change is difficult, but change is necessary,” Eldridge said. For the past month or more, raffle tickets have been sold at $5 each. Two names would be drawn — one for the person who would be in the last car to drive over the old bridge and another for the individual who would occupy the leading vehicle in a parade across the newly unveiled Bay of Naples Bridge. The raffle was held as

a fundraiser for the Town of Naples’ portion of construction costs, which are estimated to be around $405,000. On Friday, before Causeway Renovation Committee Member Bob Neault revealed the raffle winners, he said, “The citizens are ready to drive over solid pavement again, and put behind us the washboard dirt roads.” Carmen Caron was announced as the winner who would sit in the last car to cross over the 1954 bridge. Then, Eldridge heard her name called. “When I found out I won the raffle to the first ‘official’ car to drive over the new bridge, at first I didn’t believe it. Then reality sank in, and I was so excited,” she said. “This would not mean as much to a lot of people. But, to me, it was one of the best things that has happened to me in a long time,” Eldridge said. Her crusades to save the old bridge were built upon childhood memories. “I remember when I was a kid, we would watch the clock and ride our bikes down to the swing bridge as fast as we could to try to jump on and ride the bridge while Buddy Babb opened it for the boats to go through. I also remember when we used to be allowed to jump off the bridge,” she recalled. “These days, there are too many boats and way too much traffic for that to be safe. Now FIRST OFFICIAL CROSSING — Connie Eldridge, driving a convertible Jeep with her twin as I drive over this new bridge daughters in the back, makes the first official crossing over the new Bay of Naples Bridge. and look down where the old bridge is (or was), I think, Photo courtesy of Jim Brake.

‘Wow, I wanted to save that?’ ” “This new bridge is amazing, and I am so proud because of this town,” she said. “It bothers me when you hear people complain about the changes because there are so many groups and committees that they could have been part of to help make decisions — maybe not about the actual

bridge design itself, but still many other things from railings to light poles to trash cans to banners,” she said. “Thankfully, there is a lot more positive talk around town than negative. I believe it’s not too late to get involved. We still have so much more to do, and it continues to be exciting,” Eldridge concluded.

Historic day in Naples

Residents’ remarks (Continued from Page A) Friday’s opening ceremony, as well as the construction that had been completed so far in Naples. “This town did a good job. That was a beautiful ceremony. My grandson, Tyler Plante, 11, of North Yarmouth, rode in the passenger seat of my 1955 Ford Station Wagon. He was taken out of school. The teacher was very reasonable when she found out what he was doing during his time away from school. It was the end of an era when we realized we went over the old bridge. We are very pleased with the new bridge,” said Sonny Berman, a Naples resident and business owner. “You know what I liked to see is when they put the trucks with the aerial ladders and hung the American flag down over the street. That was really neat. It was fun to see all of our friends. It was a very local event. They did a great job with that bridge. It couldn’t have been easy for those guys to work in the weather. They did a great job,” said Pat Berman, a Naples resident. “I’ve been awestruck by the entire process. It has gone so smoothly. It is actually an elegant design — being an artist, I appreciate that. One of the highlights for me was in March or April, when they started pulling the tiles away from the bridge, and you could see how beautiful it was going to be. Friday’s event was a culmination of a lot of hard work. It was impressive to see a great turnout of the town’s people and the camaraderie people showed by showing up and saying, ‘This is great,’” said Rob Brand, a Naples resident and business owner. “It went very well I thought. Yes, I enjoyed the whole SEEING HISTORY MADE — People line the new Bay of Naples Bridge during last Friday’s grand opening ceremony. Also thing. It was pretty weird looking at the last car going over in attendance was bridge designer, engineer Jeff Folsom of the Maine Department of Transportation (bottom, right). the bridge and knowing that was it: The last car over the old bridge and never again. Now, people are enjoying the new road,” said Dan Allen, resident and business owner. “I was personally impressed with the crowds, and also the happy and proud faces. I loved to see the people scramble to the new bridge rail to watch the old cars go over the bridge, and then also see the happy faces as the band came around and led the new cars across the bridge. I hitched a ride on the back of the antique fire truck, and got to stand on the back gripping the rail like the firemen used to do in the olden days. It’s something I have always wanted to do. I am taking the ride on the back of a fire truck off my ‘bucket list’ now,” said Derik Goodine, Naples Town Manager. “Overall, it was a terrific day. We had calm sailing with the TV news crews, and had live coverage of the event. The (Lake Region High School) band was great. One of the moving moments I had was when my daughters sang — they did an excellent job. The crowd of people that was there was really a terrific showing, a terrific showing of support. Everyone was elated. It was touching to hear all the positives. The attitude has continued on. I am still getting stopped at the Post Office, or wherever I am; and people are expressing how wonderful the event was and how happy they are with the bridge. The frequent comment I get is: It seems so natural like that is where the bridge should have always been,” said Bob Neault, resident, business owner and chairman of the Causeway Renovation Committee.

Brewery project (Continued from Page A) has demonstrated adequate financial capacity to support the debt service, and we look forward to working with them on this endeavor.” As to the performance standards that pertain to “preserving and enhancing the landscape” and “relationship to surroundings,” Roux said, “We don’t intend to change any current landscaping or plan on disturbing any landscaping or the buildings themselves.” She noted that the 40- by 40foot microbrewery building to be constructed will not be open to the public. The hours of operation for the taproom will be noon to 8 p.m., and it will operate five days per week, Roux said When Planning Board member Dee Miller asked if the microbrewery building was intended to look like a barn, Roux replied, “I wouldn’t say it resembles a barn — it’s 40 by 40 square...we’ll do our best to make it flow with the appearance of the (rest of the) property. We won’t jump out with big colors.” Roux said the farmhouse and former ice cream shop structure will be painted a “light gray and maroon red (will be used) for the highlights (trim)” with red roofs. No new lighting or signage is anticipated either, said Roux. “There are no major plans on changing the look of the façade of the buildings,” Roux said. The Maine Department of Transportation has determined the microbrewery and taproom will require an entrance driveway at least 20 feet in width, in order to receive an entrance permit from that agency. When Michael Daley expressed concern that there may be large trucks and tanker trucks loading and unloading at the 48 Portland Road location, Board Chairman Steve Collins, a professed home-brewer of beer, stated, “I’m a home-brewer — this will be a seven-barrel brewery — each barrel is 200 gallons,” with no more than four or five barrels. “I envisioned a large brewery like Anheuser-Busch has,” Daley stated. Roux said she anticipates having one box truck delivery per month. Collins noted that brewing beer requires grain, to which Maple Street resident Cynthia Gorman said, “First it was going to be a tasting room, and now a bar. And grain equals rats — I don’t want rats in my neighborhood.” Amy Ober, who accompanied Roux May 22, said they “will be working with the Department of Agriculture” to meet its regulations. Miller pointed out that the proposed microbrewery and taproom

must comply with state regulations and laws that oversee these types of businesses. “It’s not as wide open as people might think,” said Miller. “We have always said 30 seats,” Roux said. As to whether a surface drainage study by a licensed engineer will be required at the microbrewery property or not will be determined when CEO Baker returns to work next week, and the matter will be discussed further at the planning board’s meeting on June 5. Gorman expressed her concern about surface water drainage in that area and she said it affects other neighbors’ properties as it drains toward Stevens Brook. Bonnie Trafford, who resides on Maple Street, also had concerns about the surface water in the area affecting neighboring properties. Public Works Director Jim Kidder noted that a culvert was put under the road about 20 years ago. “That whole area (from Morning Glory Diner on Portland Road back toward Maple Street) is very wet,” Kidder said. “We are prepared to meet with Rob when he comes back,” said Ober. “We can have a study done.” Referring to the drainage study, Chairman Collins said the planning board does not intend to “put anyone to (bearing) an undue cost, but we want to do this right.” “Okay, I think we’re (the planning board) in substantial agreement with the applicant on everything but Items 5 and 13 (surface water drainage and protection against undue water pollution), so I’d entertain a motion to table those until our next regular meeting on June 5,” Collins said. The board expects to have CEO Baker’s determination on how those two performance standards may or may not impact consideration for planning board approval by their June 5 meeting date.

Legal advice on local preference must wait

Anne Krieg, Bridgton’s Director of Planning, Economic and Community Development, said in a memo that there was an affordable housing project in Bar Harbor, where she last worked, that administered local preference, “but it was the choice of the (Maine State) Housing Authority to do it that way and not by local ordinance.” The Community Development Committee broached the idea to

SUPPORT FOR GREG — The Fryeburg Academy sophomore class gave $200 to The Friends of Greg Sanborn Fund (below). In photo are sophomores Seth Benoit and Sullivan Briggs presenting the gift to Kim Barton Newton of Denmark (cousin of Greg Sanborn) and Ellen Benson Guilford-Chairman of The Friends of Greg Sanborn. Top, Greg receives a big hug from a former classmate; (top right) Taylor Newton of Denmark gives a thumbs up after a stem-cell match test; (bottom right) Greg is pictured with former babysitter Rena Gallagher. Friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and strangers came out in record numbers over the weekend to support 46-year-old Greg Sanborn, a Fryeburg native and Chief Deputy with the Maine Warden Service, battling T-cell lymphoma. A benefit supper and auction was held on Saturday night with a stem cell match donor drive taking place on Sunday, both at the Fryeburg Academy gym. Over 500 people showed up to eat and bid on auction items on Saturday night. Over 200 people arrived at the gym on Sunday to become possible life-saving stem cell matches for Sanborn. Whether or not a match is found, all those tested will be entered in the world-wide donor bank and if matched will be available to help others in need. The group, “The Friends of Greg Sanborn,” a three-week old committee led by Ellen Benson Guilford was very pleased with the results of the benefit events. “The whole community came out to save someone’s life. I’m amazed and just so proud. Greg was not only supported by his friends, colleagues and classmates but by those of his parents and family as well. This small community is very supportive. Saturday night was huge. People were there who hadn’t seen each other in 30 years. It was so great that Greg was there too. He has been very sick and we weren’t sure he could be there — but it seemed to me he got energy from the rest of us. His color improved as the events went on. He was sitting on a cooler talking to people and laughing and telling stories with old friends. It truly felt like we were giving him life,” she said. In three short weeks, $28,000 has been raised and over 200 people tested for matching stem cells.

selectmen of a local preference ordinance for affordable housing earlier this month. Krieg, in a memo to Flewelling, said she has worked with the socalled 40B law in Massachusetts that allows a percentage of a subsidized project’s units to be reserved for local residents, with municipal employees and teachers included. “I do know this empowerment and it has worked very well to give a great benefit to the municipality, so I support the concept,” Krieg wrote. With 40B, she said that in return for allowing local preference, the developer “gets an increase in

density, not otherwise allowed in zoning, so they can build affordably and hold a (certain percentage) profit.” Bridgton doesn’t have density requirements other than those that apply to parking, she noted. She asked whether Bridgton would be therefore violating the Fair Housing Act by possibly “penalizing an applicant for their funding source that another private developer of multi-family units with usual bank financing would have to do. The Fair Housing Act says a municipality cannot discriminate based on financing.

Avesta Housing, Inc. has secured three sources of funding for its proposed $4 million, 21-unit affordable housing project in Pondicherry Square. One of those funding sources is federal Rural Development money; another is low income tax credit financing from the federal Housing and Urban Development. Both sources are administered by Maine State Housing. Krieg said in her memo that HUD allows local preference for persons who are homeless or have been involuntarily displaced. Maine State Housing allows a

preference system for Section 8 vouchers as well, she noted. “So, if HUD allows local preference in Section 8, can we?” Krieg asked. Since MMA cannot answer those questions, selectmen on Tuesday realized they would need to, once again, employ the services of Town Attorney Richard Spencer, who has spent a significant amount of time advising the town on how to proceed with its appeal of the Department of Environmental Protection’s conditional order for Shoreland Zoning in the General Development II District.

MUSHROOMS AND MOLD — Judy Crowell said she took this picture of fungi growing in the basement of 16 Walker Street in Bridgton, caused by burst pipes before she moved in. Crowell said her landlord, Nelson Henry, promised to clean up the basement, which was filled with former tenants’ belongings that got wet, but never did. A judge ruled in her favor when Henry took her to court for refusing to pay rent, saying Crowell had proven that the home was “unfit for human habitation.”

QUESTIONABLE WIRING — was in the basement of 16 Walker Street in Bridgton, when Judy Crowell lived there from October of 2009 to the summer of 2010. “The wiring was all over the place and would hit us in the face when we walked downstairs,” she said.

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Judy Crowell, a projectionist at the Magic Lantern Theatre in Bridgton, said she lived through a nightmare for nearly a year after agreeing to rent the house at 16 Walker Street in Bridgton, with her 17-year-old daughter and a friend, in October of 2009. The cellar was a sodden mess from pipes that had burst before she moved in, soaking the discarded belongings of former tenants. The stove and refrigerator didn’t work, and she had to use her own money to replace the appliances. Her landlord, building owner Nelson Henry, promised her he’d clean up the basement and repair the appliances, and she believed him. She wishes now that she hadn’t been so understanding. Henry, for his part, said it was Crowell who “let things slide,” and that she was “painting a pretty bad picture” of conditions at the home. He said he had a reliable maintenance man at that time who tried to respond to her concerns. “Judy was actually a pretty good

occupant at first, but the last few months got weird,” Henry said. Conditions at the home just got worse, Crowell said, to the point where sewage began backing up in the bathtub because of a clog in the drain. Henry’s answer was to unhook the piping for the weekend and then not tell her about it, she said, which dumped raw sewage into the cellar when she flushed the toilet. Her brother-in-law, an electrician, discovered that an extension cord was being used to connect wiring in the walls, and that the porch light didn’t always work, suggesting faulty wiring. “Nelson told me he was going to fix everything,” Crowell said, and as a single working mom, the idea of packing up and moving again was just too overwhelming. “So I kept waiting, and doing things on my own,” she said. Crowell said she took 10 truckloads of dirty, wet junk from the cellar to the dump, and avoided the cellar as much as she could. “It was so disgusting to me. It smelled, even at the beginning,” said Crowell.

She had Code Enforcement Officer Robbie Baker and Fire Chief Glen Garland come inspect the house, and she said they told her to arrange for an electrician to make electrical repairs. “I don’t understand why the CEO couldn’t have taken more action,” said Crowell. Baker was on vacation this week and was unavailable for comment. Crowell also called the State Fire Marshall’s office, and was told someone would come to look at the house. “Things happened, and he never came out,” she said. Finally, after the sewage backup incident, she’d had enough. She stopped paying rent in April, 2010, and, in August of that year, Henry took her to court in order to have her evicted. Crowell turned the tables on Henry, showing up in Bridgton Ninth District Court with photos that convinced Judge Keith Powers that the house was “unfit for human habitation,” under the Maine landlord-tenant law. But because the court was hearing an eviction proceeding, the ruling applied only to the status of Crowell’s tenancy, and not to

laws governing habitable property. Crowell was excused from paying rent, and she moved in with her mother in Harrison soon after. Crowell said she consulted Pine Tree Legal Services, and considered filing her own lawsuit, but decided against it once Henry began eviction proceedings. Proving a place is unfit for human habitation is “really hard to do,” said Crowell, and would take money and time she did not have. She said at first the judge didn’t want to listen to her reasons for not paying rent, but once he did listen, she said, “He was mortified at what I had to live with.” Crowell is aware some people might shake their heads and wonder why anyone would move into a house with so many problems, or stay there for any length of time with the problems unaddressed. To that she said, “I was a single mom, paying just about everything I made for rent. It’s hard, it’s really difficult. Living there was just ridiculous. I don’t think he could ever pay me what he owed me in terms of distress.”

(Continued from Page A) pushed into play by the people who showed up and spoke at a meeting two weeks ago. Audience members expressed their concerns about the town spending money on the firm that had disappointed them when it took over a revaluation that had been half-completed in 2007. Not to mention O’Donnell was the highest bidder, people had pointed out. Residents did not keep quiet. They did not keep quiet when a citizens’ signature referendum passed at town meeting. And, residents did not stay hushed about any displeasure over the bid being handed to O’Donnell with a 3-2 vote on April 10. When Tuesday’s executive session wrapped up, the swing vote was held in Selectman

Tracy Kimball’s hands, and she made her change of heart known. “A lot of things have happened in the past two weeks. We have decided to not accept the contract for O’Donnell,” Kimball said, offering up the new motion. Following the vote, Kimball said, “I just wanted to say this. I want to tell Mike and John O’Donnell that in no way do I have any less confidence in them than I walked into the building this evening.” “I do not want to set you up for a project that may not be completed reasonably — since many people in the community may be unwilling participants,” she said. “I’ve received a lot of feedback in the form of emails and letters,” Kimball said, stressed

the word ‘feedback’ as though it was not all positive comments. She asked if Bob Levesque was present, and people shouted that he was still out of state. So, she said he could probably watch the video, and turned to the camera. “Mr. Levesque, I don’t appreciate your bullying tactics,” Kimball said. As happened a few years ago, the selectmen had received communication from Casco summer resident Levesque. The correspondence stated that a recall was an option for those seated officials who made erroneous decisions regarding the awarding of the property revaluation bid. “My decision is in the best of interest of the community,” Kimball said. “So, don’t think

you bullied me into my decision-making process.” On Wednesday morning, Town Manager Dave Morton said, “The selectmen made the decision they thought was appropriate. And, the board members had been struggling with it for awhile.”

(Continued from Page A) Daley, the health officer. “The slumlords know how to skirt the laws, and they prey on people who can’t afford to rent elsewhere,” said Dellosso. “It’s time to really, really hold (landlords) accountable.” Numberg was unavailable for comment. Henry, reached by phone on Tuesday, said it has been difficult for him to maintain being an absentee landlord. He is a dentist and resident of Raymond whose work requires travel throughout the state. “I’m just not around to fix every little thing,” Henry said. If and when he is informed of a major problem, he hires local contractors to perform repairs — but acknowledges he doesn’t always address minor issues. “It’s hard to get a handyman for the little things,” Henry said. “Good help is hard to find.” And he points out that state law favors tenants in disputes, and that evicting a problem tenant is often a lengthy and expensive process. “Sometimes, the occupant can paint a really bad picture” to officials about a property’s condition, in order to gain their own advantage, Henry said. When, he said, the problem is the result of tenant negligence and vandalism. “I want to get rid of the deadbeats” as much as anyone, he said. Substandard residential housing isn’t the only problem, said Crime Watch member Kenton Courtois. Unaddressed code violations exist in older commercial buildings as well, he said, citing an incident in which he stepped through the floor as structural supports gave way inside a downtown store. King said selectmen rely on state law in addressing dangerous buildings, which requires the town to file a claim in Superior Court, and can be drawn out and costly. It took the town 2 ½ years to demolish an unsafe house on North High Street that had been gutted by fire. A local ordinance could assess fines without a court ruling until problems are addressed, he said. Daley said she, along with Code Enforcement Officer Robbie Baker and Fire Chief Glen Garland, inspected a complaint of bed bugs at the six-unit apartment building at 396 Main Street around a month ago and found several safety violations. On the third floor, there was no fire escape; on the second floor, boxes and debris blocked egress in the hallway, Daley said. The oil tank at 396 Main ran dry during the winter of 20102011, and Daley said despite repeated attempts, she was unable to reach Henry. The town put 100 gallons of oil in the tank and gave the tenants electric heaters, telling them to shut the doors and live in one room. She later found out Henry was vacationing in Mexico. “I have tried and tried and tried, and I can never get him,” Daley said in a later phone interview. “I shouldn’t have to chase people down like this.” Asked why he didn’t provide oil to the tenants at 396 Main Street, Henry said, “I probably just didn’t have enough money.” King also said Baker has had no luck reaching Henry to get permission to inspect 16 Walker Street, which was declared uninhabitable by a judge during a 2010 eviction proceeding (see sidebar to this story). Daley works part time and averages around five to six calls a month for such complaints as mold, raw sewage, foul well water, unsafe front steps and floors caving in — the latter especially common with older mobile homes. Mobile homes “do have a life, and a death — they just wear out,” she said. If she finds something really dangerous, Daley said she’ll go to the town manager for further action. But most of the time, her options are limited, she said. “I usually tell them to move.” She’s aware that it’s not uncommon for tenants to lodge complaints about the same time their rent is due, so they won’t have to pay. “A lot of issues contribute to this,” she said of the substandard housing problem. “One of them is unemployment, and another is drugs. There’s a lot of tentacles to this thing.” In his e-mail to the Crime Watch group, Woodward said he’s been concerned about substandard housing in Bridgton for many years. “Many of the ‘kids’ I’ve hired in the past have told me horror stories of their apartments. When I asked why they didn’t report the violations to the town’s CEO, they said they didn’t know of any other places they could rent that were affordable,” said Woodward. Woodward said he doesn’t want Bridgton to become a “center for slums,” but added, “I do realize that many younger and older folks in our community need clean, safe housing that’s available at a reasonable rental rate.” Courtois has been researching model substandard housing and dangerous building ordinances around the country, and has found several that could serve as a model for Bridgton. Selectman King told the group they ought to get to work on it soon, if they wanted to have it considered by voters this November. Ten members of the BCCW agreed to serve on a subcommittee to draft the ordinance for consideration by selectmen, and are currently working to inventory properties in town that may be considered substandard. “This is way overdue,” said Murphy. Added Nelle Ely, who said there are substandard housing issues near her home on Portland Road, “I know young people need housing, but that does not justify putting them in firetraps.”

Get your space ready for summer There’s no better place than your own backyard for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the outdoors. And, there’s no better time than summer to spruce up your space. If you’re looking to upgrade a humdrum yard into something special, here are some things to consider: Comfort. Trees and awnings aren’t just great adornments for

your yard; they provide much needed shade for you to sit outdoors comfortably and safely. Avoid summer mosquito bites by placing birdbaths and other standing water structures far from lounging and eating areas. Install LED yard lighting for night, which is less likely to attract mosquitoes than incandescent lights. Safety. When planning your space, make safety a top prior-

Maine Arbor Week is here (May 20-26) so grab a shovel and plant a tree. But wait… Before planting a tree, make sure you know how to do it correctly, advises the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). How a tree is planted, and initially maintained, makes all the difference in the world. Too many people are content to simply plant a tree, but don’t ensure that the tree has the chance to go on to live for many years. “Planting a tree is making an investment in the future,” said Sharon Lilly, ISA Educational Director. “You must care for and nurture your young tree so that it will pay dividends for years to come.” There are a few simple tips to remember when planting your tree this spring: Prepare the perfect hole for planting. Dig the hole two

SOUTH PARIS — Memorial Day weekend in the Oxford Hills means lilac time at the McLaughlin Garden in South Paris. The historic garden started by Bernard McLaughlin in 1936 includes about 125 early, middle and late-season blooming lilacs. Although lilacs began to bloom early this year due to the warm spring, recent cool weather has extended the bloom. Late bloomers should continue the display for several weeks. The garden is normally open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Lilac Festival with additional programming and tours will take place from May 25-28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for visitors to experience the sights and scents of lilacs. Scheduled are talks on lilac care at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Guided tours of the garden take place at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Getting ready for summer ty, consider planting a flower garden to attract butterflies and humming birds. The interplay of light and shadow adds magic to the night. By carefully placing accent lights at upward or downward angles and using wall wash lighting, you can silhouette trees and direct shadows. Capture the nighttime loveliness of water features like ponds with LED lights specially built for underwater illumination. For best results, consult a landscape lighting expert. Energy savings.

(Continued from Page B) Plant the tree. Gently place the tree in the hole. Partially backfill with the soil from the hole, water to settle the soil, then finish back-filling the hole. Tamp the soil gently, but do not step on the root ball. A few pointers. While you may have finished planting, Arbor Day aficionados should remember these final touches: • Remove tags and labels; do not stake unless the tree has a large crown or the planting is situated on a site where wind or people may push the tree over. • Stake for a maximum of one year; • Prune only the damaged branches;

• Soak the soil well, making sure no air pockets form between roots. Wait until next year to fertilize. • Spread two inches of mulch over the planting area, but do not place it up against the trunk. • Be sure the root ball has plenty of water throughout the year. Anyone with questions regarding choosing the right tree or proper planting and maintenance is advised to contact an ISA Certified Arborist.

Power Propagator Program SOUTH PARIS — Learning how to propagate plants is a skill gardeners can use to improve their gardens. At the McLaughlin Garden in South Paris, Chief Horticulturist Kristin Perry teaches volunteers how the plants can be increased to plant elsewhere. Dividing plants also makes them bloom better.

Cunningham in running for rep. spot Dr. George G. Cunningham, former superintendent of schools for the Maine School Administrative District #72 (Fryeburg area) schools, has just announced that he is entering the race this fall to represent District 97 (the towns of Fryeburg, Brownfield, Hiram, Porter, and Parsonsfield) in the Maine House of Representatives. Dr. Cunningham states that his two main objectives are to work to restore education to the once high level of accomplishment that it previously enjoyed among other states and to work with business to secure more and better job opportunities for the people of the district. Dr. Cunningham has long been an active contributor to the area community. He chaired the building study committee that just won approval to build a new elementary school in Fryeburg to replace the old, overcrowded and outmoded C.A. Snow School in town. He volunteers monthly at the Brownfield Food Pantry and is working with them to secure a new and permanent facility for their ongoing operation. He also serves on the board of

directors of the Tin Mountain Conservation Center that provides environmental education to all local schools, is an active member of Rotary contributing to their many programs of community service, and serves the First Congregational Church of Fryeburg as the Treasurer of the church. Working to do what he can to improve conditions for the people of the community has been a way of life for Dr.

Dr. George G. Cunningham

Cunningham and he promises to carry that ethic on into the state House, if elected next fall. He states that our local citizens deserve a strong and active leader in Augusta. Dr. Cunningham lives in Fryeburg with his wife of 45+ years, Priscilla, and their beloved, rescue hound dog, Bonnie. They have two grown

children who are in successful careers of their own and six grandchildren ranging in age from three to 18. Dr. Cunningham is open to hearing from people of the district and invites anyone who would like to assist him in his campaign to call 935-7345 or to e-mail him at gpcunningham3@ gmail. com.

At the program, Perry teaches when and how to divide plants, how to replant the divisions, how to choose the right soil mix when plants are to be grown in pots, and how to be successful growing the plant in other places. Sometimes participants leave with divisions from Bernard McLaughlin’s original collection. Gardening can be hard

work, but the propagator program can allow individuals with physical limitations to work at a table in the barn potting up plants. In addition to learning about gardening, participants report that they have made new friends and enjoyed the volunteer opportunity.

Casco Fire Department is installing the AEDs as part of an initiative to make lifesaving treatment readily available to citizens of Casco and the Lake Region who may experience sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). As part of this effort, training for fire/EMS employees will be provided so all personnel can respond to someone in SCA if needed. “We see the implementation of this new program as a key component to protecting the health and safety of those in the community we serve,” said Fire Chief Jason. “We want to make sure treatment with CPR and defibrillation is readily avail-

able at the scene when an SCA call comes into dispatch.” Although not everyone can be saved from sudden cardiac arrest, studies show that early defibrillation can dramatically improve survival rates. Time from collapse to treatment is critical because for every minute defibrillation is delayed, SCA survival rates decrease by an estimated seven to 10 percent. Emergency medical services (EMS) teams can encounter delays due to traffic congestion, weather, road conditions, remote locations, and other factors. Providing AEDs in local fire vehicles and training personnel in their use enables trained responders to provide CPR and defibrillation, preferably within the 3-5 minute window of time recommended by the American Heart Association

and European Resuscitation Council, before EMS arrives to provide advanced medical care. The purchase of these LIFEPAK® AEDs was made available by a grant from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation. About Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) SCA is a leading cause of death, taking the lives of nearly 300,000 people a year in the United States alone. SCA is often caused by an electrical malfunction of the heart called ventricular fibrillation. This results in an ineffective quivering of the heart muscle that makes it unable to pump blood through the body. Unlike a heart attack, which often has warning signs such as pain in the chest or upper extremity, and is caused by a problem with blood flow to the heart, SCA

often comes on suddenly and without warning in people of any age. Once the blood stops circulating, a person in SCA quickly loses consciousness, a pulse and the ability to breathe normally. Although providing CPR is important, defibrillation is the only definitive treatment for this condition. About Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) AEDs are small, portable and easy-to-use electronic devices that enable anyone with minimal training to provide a potentially lifesaving defibrillation shock to someone in SCA. The device shows and tells the user what to do, step by step, and the expertise needed to analyze the heart’s electrical function is programmed into the AED. The AED is designed to provide or recommend a shock only if it THIS WEEK’S RAIN was a treat for flower gardens across detects a shock-able rhythm. the area.

‘Naturally Curious’ at Bridgton Library A year in New England is filled with constant seasonal transformations; each month holding new events to get excited about. In April, we watch the return of many migrant birds, in June we observe clover, buttercups, hawkweed, daisies and other wildflowers in bloom. August brings loud summer thunderstorms and October arrives with vibrant foliage. In November we may see the first killing frosts, and by January the land is laden with heavy snow. By the time February rolls around, it seems that most of New England is eagerly awaiting the fresh green of an April spring once again. For many residents of Maine, these seasonal changes help create wonderful memories and strong ties to the natural world. The same is

true for Vermont resident, Mary Holland. With Holland’s recently-published book, Naturally Curious, 40 years of experience as an environmental director at Vermont Institute of Natural Science, and plenty of practice as a natural history columnist/nature photographer it is obvious that Holland is an expert in the field of natural history. This summer Mary Holland offers Maine residents not only a captivating read, Naturally Curious, and a wonderful blog, but also a chance to meet her in person! On Saturday, June 9 at 9 a.m., Holland will be at the Bridgton Town Hall (North High Street) for a 1.5-hour presentation titled, Naturally Curious. The slide program is based on Holland’s recently

‘Naturally Curious’ by Mary Holland published book and will be a visual journey through the 12 months of the year, as seen through a naturalist’s eyes. Beginning in March, when the earth awakens, and ending in February, Holland will guide you through a selection of each

month’s most memorable natural events. Images and informational tidbits about reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals and plants of New England are presented to audiences of all ages. This informative slide program is accompanied by a collection of natural history artifacts, including skulls, scat, feathers, horns, antlers and more. Signed books will be available after the program. All participants must register for this event ahead of time. Space is limited so sign up early! Sign-up opens Friday, April 20 for LEA members; Friday, May 4 for local residents; and Friday, May 18 for everyone else. Attendance is $5 for LEA members and $10 for non-members.

NORWAY — Stephens Memorial Hospital Women’s Imaging Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in stereotactic breast biopsy as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology. A breast biopsy is performed to remove cells — either surgically or through a less invasive procedure involving a hollow needle — from an area in the breast suspected to be cancerous. These cells are examined under a microscope to determine a diagnosis. In stereotactic breast biopsy, a special mammography machine helps guide the radiolo-

Norway Savings Bank announced that it recently launched a brand new website, allowing customers to open accounts online, and a new mobile banking service called Mobile Solutions. These new enhancements went live on Feb. 6, 2012. Providing sophisticated, efficient delivery channels are an integral component of Norway Savings Bank’s sales and service strategy. The bank is committed to creating channels that gives customers the opportunity to bank at their convenience, whether that means coming to a branch or banking online. Norway designed its new website, also known as its eBranch, based on the experience that a customer would have if he or she came into a branch. Visitors to the eBranch are welcomed by a Norway Savings employee in a virtual recreation of the bank’s Saco branch lobby. Customers can do many of the same things at the eBranch that they would do at a traditional branch including, opening deposit accounts. With this new feature on the eBranch, accounts can be opened 24/7, which is especially helpful if regular branch hours are not convenient for a customer. The eBranch also has a live chat feature, allowing visitors to reach out to a Customer Care Specialist during normal business hours if questions arise. The eBranch can be accessed at Norway also launched its mobile banking service, Mobile Solutions, this week. Mobile Solutions allows Internet Banking customers to check account balances, transfer funds and pay bills from the convenience of their mobile devices. Mobile Solutions is accessible through a mobile browser or a downloadable application. Mobile Solutions is very secure and offers the same 128bit encryption protection as the bank’s existing Internet Banking products, which is the highest level of security available in the industry. Even with this level of

security, Norway Savings Bank advises all consumers (regardless of their financial service provider) to use the same caution on their cell phones as they would on a computer, including practicing the following safe guards: • Avoid storing sensitive information like passwords and social security numbers on your mobile device. • Password protect your mobile device and lock it when you’re not using it. • Be aware of your surroundings. Never type any sensitive information if others around you can see your screen. • Log out completely from all mobile banking sessions. • Protect your phone from viruses and malware by installing mobile security software. • Download the updates for your phone and mobile apps. • Use discretion when downloading apps. • If you change your phone number or lose your mobile device, let your financial institution know right away. • Monitor your accounts regularly and report suspicious activity to your financial institution immediately. Norway Savings Bank utilized the design and Web services of Pannos-Winzeler Marketing to create the new eBranch. Pannos-Winzeler Marketing is a full-service marketing communications firm that specializes in financial service marketing and public relations.

NORWAY — Dr. James Eshleman was the guest speaker at the recent meeting of the Vital Connections Mended Hearts group at Stephens Memorial Hospital. Dr. Eshleman had bypass surgery six years ago and participated in the cardiac rehab program at SMH. He describes the program as “excellent.” The group meets the second Wednesday of the month, for heart patients and families to receive support in coping with the emotions that often accompany diagnosis and treatment of surgery for heart disease. Learning to understand and express their shock, disbelief, anger or frustrations is an important step in the patient’s recovery process, and the supportive environment of group meetings provides a forum for these discussions. An invited health care professional speaks monthly to present valuable information and answer questions. All are welcome to attend the meeting. Attendees may have the chance to make a difference in a patient’s recovery and outlook on life, as well as interact with other members through the chapter meetings, volunteer opportunities and special events. The Stephens Memorial Hospital Vital Connections Mended Hearts group will meet at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14, in the Harper Conference Center in the Ripley Medical Office Building, 193 Main Street, Norway. Larry Pierce, Pharmacy Director, will speak about understanding the world of heart medications. For more information, contact Penny York, RN at 744-6185 or

Dynamic Kids: Summer Snacking

Special to The News Dona Forke Registered Dietitian School is almost out and there is a summer full of swimming, hiking, playing, and running ahead for most kids. Busy kids need fuel that helps keep their energy up, their minds stimulated, and their appetites sated. Here are some ideas to get you started as you stock up for summer: • Greek yogurt — As a Nutrition Coordinator for Hannaford, I have been pleasantly surprised that most kids love Greek yogurt — there are many delicious flavors, they are usually non-fat, and they have double the protein of regular yogurts. • Any produce in season — keeps the price down, allows you to visit local vendors, and keeps the money in Maine! • Fresh fruit in season — colors are the magic word! Every color carries different benefits, so be sure to think of the rainbow as you are selecting fruits. • Fresh veggies in season —

the same holds true for veggies — the more colors, the better. Hummus makes a great dip. • Air-popped or lite popcorn. • If fresh fruit isn’t always possible, try snack packs of fruit packed in their own juice, unsweetened applesauce or frozen fruits with no added sugar. • Make a batch of trail mix together. Great choices include mixing crunchy whole grain cereals with raisins or other dried fruit; adding salt-free nuts such as peanuts, almonds, or walnuts; and throwing in some dark chocolate chips. Very yummy and a homemade trail mix like this one will keep your kids going for hours. • Energy bars — with so many on the market, try to look for bars that have no trans fat (no partially hydrogenated oils), no high-fructose corn syrup, and no artificial sweeteners, colors, or flavors. • Don’t forget water! If you have a favorite healthy snack that isn’t listed, I’d love to hear about it! Or, if you have a subject you’d like to see in this article, please let me know.  Dona Forke is a Registered Dietitian with a nutrition therapy practice in Bridgton, as well as working as a Nutrition Coordinator for three Hannaford stores. She can be reached at 221-6508, dona@

be offered free of charge. In addition to honoring all veterans who have and are currently serving our country, this year’s concert is dedicated to a family member of James Umberger, whose relative, retired U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant J. W. Fisher, served his country proudly and with honor for over 30 years. The concert program, featuring a military color guard, will provide a musical salute to all veterans, and a colorful display of flags from the various branches of the armed services will be presented. The concert will end with the traditional playing of the Armed Forces Medley, saluting, in order of establishment, the United States Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Reminiscent of the marching band seen and heard playing Seventy-six Trombones in the movie Music Man, the Seacoast Wind Ensemble is a 50-piece Sousa-style concert band founded in 1984, and dedicated to providing excellence in music performance and education in the tradition of the great American bands that characterized the John Philips Sousa era. As one of the region’s premier concert bands, the Seacoast Wind Ensemble is under the leadership of Mark Zielinski, who currently serves as Lecturer of Music Education at the University of New Hampshire, and teaches trumpet at the Manchester Community Music School and the Portsmouth Music and Arts Center. The program will open with the playing of the Star Spangled Banner, and feature many patriotic tunes and marches, selections from Oliver, an American sing-along, and the traditional Armed Forces Salute, when members of the audience are asked to stand while their particular Armed Forces theme is played. The program will end with The Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa. While the concert is free, there will be an opportunity to make a donation to the WMMA. There is plenty of parking and the Performing Arts Center is handicap accessible.

Memorial Day in Lovell and Fryeburg In honor of Memorial Day, the Fryeburg/Lovell VFW Post 6783 will be holding a Memorial Service in Lovell and a parade in Fryeburg on Monday, May 28. The service in Lovell Village will begin at 10:30 a.m. Upon the completion of the service the VFW members will travel to Fryeburg to assemble at the Legion Hall at 12:15 p.m. for a 1 p.m. start to the parade. The parade will proceed down Main Street to Bradley Park, where there will be another Memorial Service. Members of all the surrounding communities are invited to attend. Any person or organization who would like to take part in the parade can contact Richard King at 925-6898. The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will hold a Plant Sale on Saturday, May 26, as a fundraiser to support the many programs of the library. Many people, friends of the library, garden club members and trustees will be donating perennials, annuals and vegetable plants for this Memorial Day weekend sale. It will be held at the library from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Anyone who would like contribute plants to the sale can contact the library at 925-3177. Memorial Day weekend is busy, but if you go to the service at the village monument, take a peek at the job the Lovell Public Works Department has done on the parking area behind the library and beside the tennis courts. This was the final phase of the library and tennis court upgrade, which is a bonus to

Lovell Village. The land for the parking lot was donated to the town by Oliveann KimballScott in 2002, in memory of Fred D. Kimball and James G. Scott Jr. It both compliments the library and the tennis courts as well as the town as a whole. Larry and his crew have done a great job. The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library program with Jane Gibbons scheduled for June 12 has been moved to Tuesday, June 5. Jane will be talking about her trip to Turkey. Don’t forget that on Memorial Day weekend, on Saturday, May 26, from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuckerman’s Brewery will be holding a free tasting event at the Center Lovell Market. They will be bringing to the market four different styles of beer and ale to tempt the taste buds. One of the samples will be a pale ale which is brewed by a German process called “krausening.” Ale is a German style brown ale using German malts and German and American hops. The third is American style 6288 stout, which was originally brewed in 1934 to commemorate the recording of

(Continued from Page B) “Earth Notes” column in The Bridgton News, works within the faith community to get more people involved in the campaign for safer chemicals. The bus trip is sponsored by the Alliance for a Clean and Healthy Maine, a coalition of over 50 public health, medical, parent, community, women’s, worker, environmental, and public interest organizations dedicated to protecting public health and the environment by replacing unnecessary dangerous chemicals with safer alternatives. While in Washington, the women will lobby Maine’s Congressional delegation. They will bring 2,500 messages of support, and a resolution adopted this spring by the Maine Legislature, urging Congress to take action.

a world record wind gust of 231 miles an hour at the Mount Washington Observatory. Portions of sales of the 6288 stout were donated to the Mount Washington Observatory in honor of the event. The final beer is the Altitude Alt beer, a beer with attitude. Altitude was a limited edition but it was so good they wanted to give another go round and share at the market. Everyone is invited to attend, and along with the beer there will be samples of the catering menu. The dinning area of the store has had a facelift and looks bright and shinny. Full service won’t be available until after the Memorial weekend, when breakfast, lunch and dinner will be on the menu. Lovell is showing the pinch of the economy with the Wicked Good Store closed, and now the Lovell Hardware. It’s always hard to see businesses close that have been part of the community and served it well. When you take retirement, you sigh and think what I am going to do with the rest of my life, especially when you’ve been a teacher and coach. Gary McClurg of Fryeburg decided to use his love of photography as a way to not only be productive but to honor his wife Sheila, who died much too young. In Sheila’s memory Gary has taken breathtaking pictures of nature, and made these pictures into “Angel Wings” photos. Gary is originally from Brooklyn, New York City, but in going to Yankton College in South Dakota he met his “Angel,” Shelia. After receiving his degree and Shelia hers, they married in 1972. They came to Maine via Indian Acres Camp for Boys in Fryeburg, she as a nurse and he as baseball director. Sheila soon became a school nurse at Fryeburg Academy, with

Gary following soon after as P.E. instructor. Maine became home, where they lived, worked and raised a family. Unfortunately, Gary lost Sheila at age 43. After retirement, a friend suggested he use his interest in helping people to fill the gap in his life. Always thinking of his late wife, he came up with the idea of using his hobby to produce the 5”x 7” collage of pictures with inspirational quotes to raise money, which he would donate to various causes. He picked local organizations like Jen’s Friends, Starting Point, Harvest Hills Animal Shelter, North Conway Hospice, Southern Maine Hospice and hospice programs in Florida and Oregon. Reaching out further, he would like to donate to a cause in every state. Some of the local businesses like Thriftway have supported Gary by displaying his pictures for sale. For more information, contact Gary at June’s approaching, and that means the schedule for Ladies Day Golf at Lake Kezar Country club will start on Thursday, June 7. There will be a brief meeting at 8:15 a.m., followed by play. The ladies will have a choice of playing either nine or 18 holes. There will be a sign-up sheet in the clubhouse the week before. It’s important that you sign-up ahead of time so the teams can be formed. The Fryeburg Rotary Club’s 4th annul Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, June 16, at Kezar Lake Country Club. The Rotary is taking a tradition from the PGA Masters Tournament by awarding green jackets to the 1st place team, which the Masters is noted for. To support the cause, there are sponsorships available on three levels. The day will start with coffee and donuts, then an 8 a.m. scramble shotgun start. A fee of $55 per person entitles players to 18 holes of golf with cart, gift bags and lunch at Ebenezer’s. For more information, contact Dick Cote at 936-2793 or Peter Malia at 925-2061 to be a sponsor. Monies made on the tournament will be used to fund scholarships and other community projects.

Caught some nice brookies in Rangeley Brenda and Dylan Richardson enjoyed the weekend doing some fishing up in the Rangeley Lakes area. On Saturday morning, they met up with a friend who took them out in his boat to fish Rangeley Lake. They were able to catch some nice brookies and Dylan managed to catch a good-sized salmon. This weekend they are attending a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. The game was a prize that Brenda won from the Maine State Lottery, as a result of a second chance drawing. Go Red Sox!

Chair auction for local food pantry SWEDEN — The Sweden House Food Pantry will hold its first big fundraiser, a Chair-ity Event and Auction, on Saturday, June 2, from 1 to 6 p.m. at the Lovell VFW. The event will feature silent bidding on a variety of creative, theme-based chairs, with the theme reflected by the chair. There will be all kinds of chairs to bid on, and a theme to go along with the chair. Sowing Seeds for Life charted their first food pantry in the fall of 2008 in Sweden. The pantry came to be known as The Sweden House, and was originally located on Knights Hill Road. Since the property was sold, the Sweden Church kindly offered the basement of the church for the pantry. The pantry has jurisdiction in the towns of Sweden and Waterford. But, the pantry is open to everyone in the surrounding towns as well. It is open the first and third Wednesday of each month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The mission also provides access to clothing, education and housing for families that have been placed in difficult situations either by illness, accident, or by misfortune and that are in need of basic living essentials. During the event there will be silent bidding auction on some fabulous prizes, such as three weeks of camp for a girl 8-12 years of age donated from Camp Tapawingo, along with a beach

chair and towel. The value of this prize is $5,000, with a minimum bid of $500. Another prize is a three-piece bistro set, a fire pit, bottle of organic wine, ice bucket, glasses, and pizza. The value of this prize is $150, with a minimum bid of $50. There also will be a Chinese auction, and again there are a lot of fantastic prizes. Some of the prizes are gift certificates to restaurants, local florists shops, movie tickets, dog toys, handmade items, fresh-baked pies, and many other items. The dollar table will have a gas grill, scrapbooking supplies, car wash and detail, and handmade quilt, just to name a few. Look for the 50/50 raffle, and don’t forget to bring your appetite, refreshments will be for sale. Ticket prices are as follows: Chinese auction, 25 tickets for $5; 50 tickets for $10; and 110 tickets for $20. The dollar table will sell 12 tickets for $10.  Those who wish to donate or have any questions may call Mary Ann at 935-3631 or e-mail

SMH diabetes National Trails Day program

The lush, green trails of Pondicherry Park are a great place for an evening stroll or a morning jog. Spring blossoms of fringed polygala, goldthread and starflower are colorful sights to see along the paths. With 66 acres of woodlands and fields and two miles of walking trails, Pondicherry Park greatly increases the quality of place and life in Bridgton.

Together, on Friday, June 1, Loon Echo Land Trust and Lakes Environmental Association will celebrate National Trails Day by working with volunteers to

improve and clean up the trails of Pondicherry Park. If you are a student looking for some volunteer hours, or a resident simply interested in helping out, please join us at 9 a.m. at the kiosk entrance to Pondicherry Park in the parking lot behind the Magic Lantern. Volunteers can work under their own time frames. If possible, please bring work gloves, sturdy hiking boots, water, snacks, rakes and brush clippers. Other equipment will be provided as needed. Please help keep Pondicherry Park looking beautiful for the hundreds of residents that enjoy its paths by volunteering some time on June 1.

Senior scams (Continued from Page B) aged 65 or older has been taken advantage of financially. Most commonly, seniors are shown to be affected by inappropriate investments, unreasonably high fees for financial services, or outright fraud. The four most prominent scams for seniors to avoid: Deceptive Sales. Individuals will go door-to-door on behalf of their business and try to cause a sense of urgency. The business will lie about safety issues or the extent of the problem, hoping to inflate the prices for their services. Some of the service providers may include furnace repairmen, contractors, air duct cleaners, or door-to-door salespeople. Sweepstakes and Lottery Scams. The sweepstakes scam normally occurs when a victim receives a letter in the mail that he or she has won a lottery or sweepstakes. The letter will tell the person to deposit an enclosed check and then wire a portion back to the company to cover taxes or administration fees. Sometimes the scammers will also say that a


taxi will come pick you up to help you claim your money. If you haven’t entered into something, you’re never going to win. Grandparents Scams. This scam includes a telephone call from someone claiming to be a relative stuck in a foreign country, needing money to get home. Often the caller claims to be a relative serving in the military who needs money for medical needs. The BBB advises that seniors should ask the caller for their name or other information that would be only known to a relative. Medicare Scams. Medicare scams are easily accomplished because of the ambiguous nature of the system. Scammers claim to be with Medicare and ask for personal information. A victim may be given numerous excuses to provide information such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, or bank account numbers. A person should never give away any information to a business without doing some research. For more information on these scams, visit

Raiders cash in on Laker miscues

Tripp sparks FA surge By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer FRYEBURG — Carla Tripp has the reputation of being a master of the bunt. As a freshman, she had 21 base hits, of which 19 were bunt singles. As Lake Region found out Monday, Tripp also has some pop. Fryeburg Academy’s junior catcher roped two triples and scored three runs to power the Raiders (13-1) to a 7-1 victory at the Legion Field. The victory ran the top-ranked Raiders’ win streak to 11. It was a very “workmanlike” game as the Raiders scored in every inning other than the third frame. FA went up 2-0 in the first as Maggie McConkey (reached on an error) and Mackayla Frost (running for Sarah Harriman, who singled down the first base line) each scored. With two out in the second, Tripp beat out a bunt single, stole second and then scored on a RBI single up the middle by Maddie “Whammer” Pearson (2-for-4, 3 RBI). Pitcher Sarah Harriman dominated the Laker line-up early, recording five strikeouts over the first two innings. She gave up an infield single in the first by Rachel Wandishin. In the third with two out, Abby Craffey belted a line drive that dropped just inside the rightfield line for a triple. SOFTBALL, Page C

ATTACKING THE RAIDER DEFENSE — Lake Region’s Dakota Russo (middle) looks for some operating room against the Fryeburg Academy defense. Russo scored on the play as the Lakers went on to record a 6-4 win. One of the FA defenders was Zach Sargent (#13).

Lakers hold off FA rally

FRYEBURG — Jake Fleck, Lewis Morton and Erik Christensen proved to be an impenetrable wall. The threesome anchored the Lake Region varsity boys’ lacrosse defense last Friday, stifling the Fryeburg Academy offense as the Lakers edged the Raiders 6-4. “Our defense played their best game of the season, holding Fryeburg to only one goal until the last five minutes of the game,” said LR Head Coach Don White. “Jake, Lewis Morton and Erik really stepped up to shut down the Fryeburg

attack. They were able to prevent goals on several man-down penalties, as well as a one minute two-man advantage.” Lake Region struck first midway through the first quarter as RJ Legere came from behind the goal, drew a defender toward him and found Ryan Skillern open at the top right corner. Skillern took a low, hard sidearm shot that made it through FA goalie Ian Scrimger’s legs. TJ Leach helped set up the second Laker goal when he scooped up a ground ball in the defensive end and created a fast break. He lured the center defender away

from the goal and found Ryan Chute in front of the crease. Chute received the ball and took a quick shot as another Fryeburg defender came over to block his shot, but it proved too late. Fryeburg’s attackman Mike Dandaneau put the Raiders on the scoreboard when he was able to start behind the goal, dodge several Lake Region players to be able to curl up top in front of the goal for an open shot. Chute, however, answered with his second goal, which was a repeat of his first. A fast break triggered by Leach resulted in

FRYEBURG — When you are thinking about playoffs, every game really counts. Fryeburg Academy is just on the outside looking in (at press time), sitting in the 13th spot with just two games remaining — at Freeport Friday and at Greely next Wednesday. The Raiders (6-7) snapped a four-game losing skid with 5-3 victory over Gray-New Gloucester behind a two-run double by Nate McCann and added a 4-2 victory over Lake Region Monday taking advantage of a few LR miscues. McCann also came up big in the field for the Raiders as he snared a line drive in the seventh, and doubled up a Patriot runner to help preserve the win. Kirk Hubbard singled to score Andrew Rascoe in the fourth, while Walker Day also singled to score Hubbard and McCann as FA plated four runs. Ian McFawn struck out 11 and gave up just four hits. Fryeburg cashed in on Lake Region errors over the first three frames to score three runs, which proved to be enough to down their rivals. LR pitcher Mike Mageles tossed a solid game, recording one earned run while notching five strikeouts through six innings. The Laker offense had a rough day with the one highlight being

a leftcenter RBI gap double by Chris Gerrish. In other action: Freeport 14, Lakers 2: The Laker defense committed nine errors and LR pitching (Donnie Eaton, Ben Chaine and Dakota Bush) allowed nine hits. The offense never showed up either. LR managed just four. York 10, Raiders 2: The Raiders managed just four hits, including a double by Andrew Rascoe, as the Wildcats (4-9) rolled to a victory at Fryeburg. Four FA pitchers — Andrew Berg, Tyler Saunders (4), Billy Rascoe (6) and Tanner Wentworth (6) — took the hill as York banged out 12 hits, rallying from a 2-1 first inning deficit. The Cats put the game away with a six-run sixth inning. York pitcher Adam Bailey allowed two runs and struck out 10. Lakers 3, Cape Elizabeth 1: Mike Mageles pitched a complete game and allowed just two walks, while Tucker Irish tripled in the third inning to score Kyle Stevens (walk) and Mageles (single) as the Lakers edged the Capers. The Lakers added a run in the sixth as pinch runner Jake Anderson reached third on a bunt by Ben Chaine and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Chris Gerrish. Cape scored a run in the seventh.

Hall breaks 2 marks

Lake Region freshman Kate Hall broke her school record in the 200 meters (25.4) and the long jump (17-feet, 9-incheds) at the Tri-County Clash at Sacopee Valley last week. She is now poised to make solid attempts at breaking some league championship records at Yarmouth this Saturday, May 26.  “The records are very good and a goal, but the main focus will be to try to win events and help the team score as many points as possible,” Lake Region varsity track and field coach Mark Snow said. “Our girls hope to have their best WHAMMER BEATS THE THROW — Fryeburg Academy’s Maddie Pearson (left) was safe finish since 1985. The coaches at the plate during Friday’s first game against York.

Her discus and javelin throws were also personal records. Kelsey Winslow qualified for the State Meet in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 51.9 seconds. Hannah Perkins qualified for the State Meet in the 800 meters with a time of 2:32.9. Jacqui Black qualified for the State Meet in the 1600 meters with a time of 5:52.1.

Mark MacDougall

Molly Hook

By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer Mark MacDougall has impacted every aspect of the Lake Region varsity boys’ track and field team this year. He is the top distance runner and often leads the group through workouts.  He is top javelin thrower and is seven feet off of qualifying for the State Meet. He and his freshmen teammates (Kyle DeSouza and Quinn Piland) have inspired each other to turn in great performances.  His enthusiasm for the 4x400 relay has convinced others to compete in it with him.  He also has participated in the triple jump with success.  “It is impressive to see Mark’s interest and success in the three disciplines of track and field — running, throwing and jumping,” said Coach Mark Snow. In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Mark 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.

By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer Some athletes — be it because of their egos or attitude — turn a cheek to constructive criticism offered by coaches. Then, there are athletes like Molly Hook. Molly is one of the top throwers on this year’s Lake Region girls’ track and field team, and has emerged as a “great leader,” according to Coach Dana Caron. Molly has already qualified for the State Meet in the discus for the second straight year, and also throws the javelin and the shot put.  “While Molly is always open to criticism and help in becoming a better thrower, she has also demonstrated her leadership skills during team practices, taking time to assist in helping the newer members of the team, who are not as experienced as she is in the events,” Coach Caron said. “As she continues to improve in her events, Molly also makes the team better with her commitment and her actions.” In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Molly 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.

Chute waiting in front of the crease. Leach again lured a FA defender away from the cage, leaving open for the pass and goal. LR’s Zach Tidd made it 4-1 two minutes later with an assist from Chute. Chute drove to the goal from behind, was able to get the defense to shift toward him and found Tidd open at the top of the box for a long shot. Tidd shot with a high release and was able to find the lower left corner for the goal. “We controlled most of the play for the first quarter,” Coach White said. Neither team was able to score in the middle quarters. “The defense on both sides controlled the play with no goals and not a lot of good chances during the next two quarters,” Coach White said. The final quarter would be different. Tyler LaPlante was able to feed Tidd, who found an opening in the defense in front of the goal. Tidd caught the ball, turned and took a quick shot over the top of two Fryeburg defenders closing in fast to make it 5-1. “Zach played his heart out. He was all over the field making some good hits and winning ground balls,” Coach White said. “He did a great job in clearing the ball out of our end throughout out the game.” With five minutes left in the game, Fryeburg started to make a comeback. Long-stick defender, Bobby Ramsay, was inserted as Fryeburg’s extra man on offense at the top right position. Fryeburg attackers passed the ball around the goal and got it back to Ramsay, who was open for great shot from 25 yards out, which beat Laker goalie Jon Turnbull for the goal. With four minutes left, Fryeburg brought the game to

Shortly after, LR’s Dakota Russo extended the lead to 6-3. Skillern fed Russo at the top of the box, and he broke toward the goal, jumped into the air and shot over a defender and scored in the lower right corner of the goal. Seven seconds later, Fryeburg scored again to make it 6-4. The Raiders won the face-off when wingman Zach Charette scooped up the ground ball and took off on a fast break.

(Continued from Page C) School Activities/Sports: Track and Field Q. Why did you choose track and field? MH. I chose track and field because being able to throw a discus, shot put and javelin takes more balance and skill than some sports that need strength and speed. Q. What do you hope to accomplish this season? MH. I hope to beat my discus throw from last year, which was 88feet, 10-inches. Q. What do you enjoy the most? MH. I enjoy being able to throw the discus with all my might no matter where it goes. Q. What do you like the least? MH. I dislike having to be in the gym during rainy days. Q. What makes you successful? MH. I think what makes me successful are the years I’ve spent in this sport and all my friends cheering me on. Q. What would your dream moment be? MH. My dream moment would be throwing past the school record. Q. What has the sport taught you? MH. This sport has taught me about endurance and restraint. If you give your everything the first time, you won’t have anything left. Q. Who has inspired you? MH. My mom has inspired me — seeing her varsity jacket with all her awards from the sports she did, including track.

(Continued from Page C) Wandishin plated the run when her hit up the middle was mishandled for an error. The run ended the Raiders’ streak of five straight shutouts. Fryeburg increased the lead to 5-1 with a pair of runs in the fourth as Emily Davidson singled to left and scored on Tripp’s bullet down the leftfield line for a RBI triple. Pearson grounded out to the right side, scoring Tripp. In the fifth, Harriman (2-for-4) dumped an outside fastball by LR pitcher Allison Clark into leftfield for a single. With Frost running for Harriman, the Raiders later scored when Bri Pelkie dropped a bunt down the third base line. An errant throw allowed the run to score. Fryeburg tacked on another run in the sixth as Tripp tripled and scored on a Pearson single to rightcenter. Other FA hitters included Kylie Locke (single) and Pelkie (single). Harriman struck out 11, walked one and hit a batter. Clark showed good zip with her fastball and mixed an effective change-up to record 7 strikeouts. She hit two batters and gave up 10 hits as the Lakers fell to 6-7. In the latest Heal Ratings (at press time), the Lakers continue to jockey for playoff position, sitting in the 10th spot (the tourney field consists of 12 teams). With three games to go, LR will look to move up to try to secure a first-round home game. LR’s remaining games are: yesterday against Poland, Friday at Gray-New Gloucester and next Wednesday, May 30 at Wells. Fryeburg closes out the regular season with away games: today, May 24 against Freeport (this game has been moved up a day to accommodate Project Grad), and Wednesday against Greely (ranked second in Class B West). In other games: Cape 2, Lakers 0: The Lakers were limited to just four hits and the Capers turned a double play with two on and no one out in the seventh to record the shutout. Raiders 5, Gray-NG 0: Maggie McConkey had two hits and drove in two runs to lead the Raiders past Gray-New Gloucester last Wednesday at the Legion Field. Carla Tripp, Maddie Pearson and Sarah Harriman each had two hits as the Raiders touched up the Patriots for 10 hits. Fryeburg broke the game open with a four-run second inning behind consecutive singles from Kylie Locke, Ellen Bacchiocchi and Emily Davidson. The Raiders added a run in SOFTBALL, Page C

village and dominates the skyline. The Moats were burned over in 1853 when a forest fire broke out just below the North Moat summit. Strong northwest winds fanned the fire and over three days it burned across the entire ridge burning everything there down to bedrock. The bare summits and ledges today are a reminder of that fire. There is a 9.7-mile trail across the entire Moat Range, but for a shorter, enjoyable 2.7mile hike climbers can ascend only the South Moat starting from the Passaconaway Road trailhead. Views from the top are spectacular, and include the village of North Conway, White Horse Ledge and Cranmore Ski Area on the east, and views of the Sandwich Range and Mount Chocorua to the west. This is a moderate hike and the Denmark Mountain Hikers last did it on Aug. 5, 2011. We left the trailhead in threatening weather, but the clouds cleared when we reached the summit and we enjoyed breathtaking 360o views.

Views from Senate by Bill Diamond State Senator, D-Windham

Wrapping up the session

In the early hours of the morning last Thursday, after meeting for two very long days, the legislature adjourned. While we did complete all the business we had before us, including a Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) budget for 2013 and a package of bonds, we are not necessarily done. We left the door open to come back and deal with any vetoes the governor may issue on the bills we passed. The DHHS supplemental budget has already been signed, but the bond bills and a few other bills await the governor’s decision. He has 10 business days including Saturdays to veto any bills passed in our two-day session. Concerning the bonds, we passed five bond issues adding up to $95.7 million. The largest, $51.5 million, is for highways, bridges, ports and other transportation projects. This is sorely needed and will put people to work now and make a dent in the backlog of projects the state has before it. We also approved a $20 million bond for Research and Development in technology-intensive industrial sectors; an $11.3 million bond for public higher education; a $7.9 million bond for wastewater and drinking water systems; and a $5 million Land for Maine’s Future bond to preserve our forests, farmlands, deer habitat and working waterfronts for future generations. All of these bonds required a super-majority of two-thirds of the legislature to pass, and, if signed by the governor, will still need to be approved by the voters of Maine in a general election. I voted against the DHHS budget that was passed because it relied on too many questionable sources of income to balance the budget. For example, there is a gimmick in the budget that assumes the federal government will waiver existing federal regulations and thus save $11 million. This is highly unlikely and will leave a significant hole in the proposed balanced budget. Ten million dollars was also taken from the education budget to help balance this budget. This budget cuts far too much from programs that help Maine families, especially children and seniors such as the Home Visitation program (which is aimed at preventing tragedies like the recent death of little Ethan Henderson), and low cost drugs for the elderly. The official expression for final adjournment of the legislature is adjourning “sine die.” This is Latin for “without day,” meaning SESSION, Page D

THEY DONATE FOOD EVERY WEEK — Members of the Taoist Tai Chi Society from Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts brought donations for the Bridgton Food Pantry April 28 to the Community Center at 41 Depot Street. Taoist Ta Chi Society USA President Jane Edwards, a student of founder Master Moy Lin-Shin, led the daylong workshop at which members brought food donations, had a potluck lunch and shared stories of how Taoist Tai Chi has made an impact on their health and quality of life. Contributions to the Bridgton Food Pantry are made weekly by the members of the Taoist Tai Chi Society, in accordance with the society’s foundation values of compassion, selflessness and service to others. Bridgton Food Pantry Director Deb Davenport said the town’s other Tai Chi group also donates weekly, and she is very grateful for both of their donations. Davenport also sent a huge thanks to the Bridgton Post Office, which collected about 1,500 pounds of food in their annual drive May 12. She said the post office donations will fill 125 pantry boxes.

The politics of archaeology Front Row Seat by Tom McLaughlin News Columnist

Even archaeology is political these days. That’s too bad because it slows down research. Muslim Arabs discourage Israeli Jews from excavating ancient sites whenever they can because findings might bolster Jewish claims to disputed territory. Christians and Jews tend to be more open to whatever may emerge from archaeological digs.

They tend to be happy when the research bolsters Biblical writings, but they don’t try to re-bury evidence that would conflict with religious teachings. Radical Muslims, however, threaten to kill anyone who even suggests something that would cast doubt on one of their teachings. For Palestinian Arabs, fostering the view that they’re victims of

Israeli “oppression” is their most potent political weapon, so historical evidence of Israeli settlement predating Palestinians by millennia threatens them. That’s true for many Native American tribes here in America too, unfortunately. It seemed to begin with a remarkable find of a nearly complete, 9,000-yearold skeleton in the Columbia River in Washington state. The political controversy in this case is racial because features of the skull don’t comply with those of Indian or “Native American” skulls found previously. Instead, it looks Caucasian and that threatens the accepted narrative of American Indian tribes who claim to be the first people in POLITICS, Page D

By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that insurance companies this year begin notifying customers how much of their premiums they have spent on medical care and quality improvement. Beginning in 2011, insurers were required to spend at least 80 percent of total, collected premium dollars on medical care and quality improvement. Insurance companies that do not meet the 80/20 standard (also known as the Medical Loss Ratio) are required to pay rebates to their customers this year.  The law, however, permits an adjustment to the 80% standard for a state’s individual health insurance market if it is determined that applying this standard “may destabilize the individual market in such state.” The Maine Bureau of Insurance applied for such an adjustment (to 65% instead of 80% for three years) and it was approved. Interestingly, 17 states applied for adjustment, and only Maine was approved without modification to its request. To my mind, this action by the Federal Department of Health & Human Services is another indication that, in situations where the ACA might create hardships for a state, it will act in good faith to make appropriate adjustments or waivers to its rules. Stan Cohen, a Medicare Volunteer Counselor, is available for free, one-on-one consultations at Bridgton Hospital on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 11 a.m. No appointment is necessary. Alternatively, call the Southern Maine Agency on Aging (800-427-7411) and ask for a Medicare advocate.

A lot can happen in 500 days

At my inauguration I said: if it is to be, it is up to us to move Maine forward. When I took the oath on Jan. 5, 2011, I had plans to make Maine prosperous. During the past 500 days, those plans have been put into motion. With hard work and determination, this administration is moving Maine back on a track to financial stability, streamlining government, and providing tax relief for thousands of Mainers. We are also making Maine more business friendly. Maine people deserve prosperity, and it is our responsibility to promote polices that will help reduce the burden on our job creators so they can invest, expand and provide good jobs for Mainers. We have more than 40,000 businesses in Maine and it’s difficult to select just a few that stand out, but in an effort to recognize a handful of companies for their commitment to excellence, I highlighted a few this past week. For 22 years, it has been a tradition for the governor to hand out awards for business excellence. These companies are honored for showing a high level of

commitment to their community, employees and to manufacturing or service excellence. Fair Point Communications has been a sponsor of the Governor’s Awards for the past five years now and we appreciate their support. This year’s winners are: Allen Insurance and Financial of Camden; James D. Julia of Fairfield; Moose River Lumber Company of Moose River; Saddleback Maine of Rangeley; Tambrands, Incorporated of Auburn; and Volk Packaging of Biddeford. Congratulations to all. My primary goals are to continue to build this economy, increase our competitiveness and help businesses like these create good paying jobs. We will do this by streamlining government, removing red tape, reforming welfare, lowering taxes, improving our education system and reducing energy costs. During the last 500 days, we have provided $400 million in tax relief for Mainers, removing more than 70,000 Mainers from the income tax rolls. We have also provided $31 million in immediate tax relief for investments made in Maine 500 DAYS, Page D

To The Editor: As the newest SAD 61 budget was being debated some thoughts come to mind. Town managers are telling the school board that there is no more money available; the defaults are up and tax liens are growing. So, it sounds as though an increase in the budget isn’t realistic. As the board and faculty wrestle with how to make do with the current amount, all I hear about is cutting programs and teachers, but also we hear of increases for the administrators? If it is really about giving our children the best education, then why are we cutting programs and teachers and paying administrators more? I have a theory. The collective bargaining groups and the state union representatives have made it about money! Plain and simple. The unions have corrupted the education system and in turn have made our children’s future bleak. The system breeds bad education and rewards mediocre teachers. It’s time to start the conversation about charter schools, which are not perfect, but at least it gives the district and the voters’ control. Right now, the unions have the control. At a time when we are jeopardizing our children’s futures by replacing teachers with Ed Techs, I cannot believe we are even considering any raises at all. And the increase in benefit premiums that the faculty get could amount to what is needed to keep the teachers in this budget. If it were really about the children, then what better way to teach the future leaders how to lead than by taking a pay freeze across the board and capping any raises to benefit premiums. We might just have enough money to keep all the teachers we need and reinstate some important programs all the while creating a “we are together in this” culture that will bring the community and the district together to help our children receive the best educational experience. Teaching is a calling. It’s not supposed to be about money. The education system isn’t working. Things must change and that change like in any other successful change must begin at the top! The faculty of this district has an opportunity

to rally the community by stepping up and leading from the top. And, I hope they will. It’s the only way we can fix this issue. Then, we can make this the best district in the state for the children and the faculty. Ken Brown Naples

Final response To The Editor: To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, there he goes again! Jeffrey Borneman launched yet another unwarranted personal attack on me in his May 10 letter to the editor. He seems determined to bait me into a protracted exchange of broadsides. If so, he won’t get his wish. This letter will be my second (and last) rejoinder, no matter how many times he may assail me in the future. Two items in his letter show why any such exchange would be fruitless. First, my jaw dropped when I read his statement that McCarthyism “has long been vindicated.” The truth is: Joseph McCarthy’s ruthless witch hunt destroyed lives, ruined careers and threatened the foundations of democracy. Every responsible commentator in the last half century has condemned it, but not those who are “true believers.” In his landmark book, The True Believer, written at the height of the McCarthy madness, philosopher Eric Hoffer described their delusional mindset. True believers cannot be convinced to change their opinions by any amount of contrary evidence. M. Lamar Keene later wrote, in part: “What is it that compels a person, past all reason, to believe the unbelievable…Even after it is exposed in the bright light of day, he… clings to it all the harder.” So, I know how futile it is to debate somebody who still believes, against all contrary evidence, that McCarthyism has been vindiLETTERS, Page D

The gratitude of a nation

“Let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us a sacred charge upon a nation’s gratitude — the soldier’s and sailor’s widow and orphan.” These words were written by Union General John Logan, who in 1868 designated a day in which the graves of Civil War soldiers would be decorated on a day that is known today as Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a time of solemn remembrance of loved ones who have perished for the sake of our nation, and gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy because of their sacrifices and acts of heroism. At the same time, it also signifies the beginning of the summer season, time to spend with friends, family, and loved ones, and anticipation of warmer weather. From the local community parades highlighted by participants waving our flag with pride to ceremonies filled with bright spring flowers draped in honor over the final resting places of fallen soldiers at cemeteries throughout the nation to the neighborhood barbecue where friends and fam-

ily gather to commemorate the new season, Memorial Day offers Americans many opportunities to express gratitude to those who lost their lives in our nation’s military conflicts. When it originated in 1868, Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day, because it was the day designated for Americans to honor the fallen soldiers from the Civil War by decorating their graves with flowers. The first Memorial Day was observed on May 30, 1868, although roots of the holiday can be traced earlier, to the end of the Civil War when organized women’s groups in the South decorated the graves of fallen Confederate soldiers. New York was the first state to recognize the holiday in 1873, followed in the next several years by most northern states. And eventually, the day became an occasion to honor all those who died in all American military conflicts. In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day a federal holiday to be celebrated the last Monday in May. A national Memorial Day GRATITUDE, Page D

A Perfect Union

(Continued from Page D) cated. I’d as soon debate a person who believes slavery has been vindicated. Second, Borneman suggested that “name calling represents a weak mind or faulty argument(s) — or both.” He went on: “As conservative members of the GOP, we’re tired of it.” Well, if the people running today’s GOP actually were conservatives, I wouldn’t call them right-wing extremists and similar unflattering things. But, they aren’t conservatives. They’re reactionaries. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins are conservatives. They have the same sensible, conservative philosophy that the Republican Party had when I was growing up in the 1950s. Today, Snowe and Collins regularly get derided as RINOS, (Republicans in name only). That says more about their right-wing extremist critics than it says about them. If Borneman and his fellow far-right zealots are tired of being called extremists, they should stop acting like extremists. Consider the recent Maine State Republican Convention. What a fiasco! It looked like something choreographed by The Three Stooges. Even a “weak-minded, faulty” guy like me can understand that such extremism is leading this oncegreat political party straight off a cliff. That’s why I resigned my membership decades ago, and I haven’t regretted that decision for a minute. Rev. Robert Plaisted Bridgton

To The Editor: Try as I might, I just don’t get the Republican/Conservative political point of view. The facts are: President Reagan initiated the current mentality of cutting taxes for the wealthy, and deregulating everything. Forty years later, in 2008, the United States economy was approaching a depression as bad as the 1930s. Banking was in chaos, housing was almost in total collapse. Up to 800,000 jobs were being lost per month in December 2008. Health insurance premiums were killing anyone capable of paying them. The middle class was being driven into extinction, SWINGIN’ BEARS GRADUATES — The Swingin’ Bears Square Dance Club of South Paris and the Dow Jones Industrial graduated nine class members May 9.

Noteworthy Happenings

To The Editor: Recently in conversations, individuals are commenting that things are beginning to happen in Bridgton. This is noteworthy, as previously, many felt the opposite was true. This momentum of action and change is the result of participation by many people over an extended period of time. These are individuals offering and shepherding ideas of change and revitalization. Often the effort is similar to punching a hole in a brick wall, but with perseverance their efforts are beginning to be seen.

Keeping the Faith

To The Editor: Until we, the people, take back our country, we deserve to lose it; buying politicians, many of them selling us out. They are trusted with our lives, our country, our liberties and our way of life; what’s left of it. We have had enough with war and making deals with countries so intent on destroying us. I have faith in the people that still respect the flag, God and knowing messing up will get you put away. Not everyone can be bought. We deserve honest politicians. We deserve courts that enforce our laws.  Our Wall Street businesses are calling themselves people.  I have always believed if you help in a crime you were guilty of the crime. How high does it go? How are those who break the laws getting away with it? Those so powerful and elected by us, the people. Yes us, the people, elect and turn our heads. We worship those who are hungry, greedy and protected by their office.  On and on we go, handing it over to our grandchildren — starting out in life only to be used and destroyed by the greed that destroys them. Will it be more of the same or will we rise up and demand justice? How honorable they are pledging allegiance to the country and praying to God when it isn’t allowed in schools. Politicians do it and it means nothing. It is good enough for Congress, but not for our children. Do as I do, or is it do as I say and I’ll do as I darn well please? America, who will you vote for to kick the can down the road? Robert J. Champagne Bridgton LETTERS, Page D

Brick Church To The Editor: This year is a big year for the Brick Church for the Performing Arts in Lovell. The work on our steeple is slated for the fall. We have several fundraising projects on the calendar, in addition to our regular summer season. We have local artisans crafting pieces centered on the Lakes Region theme, each to include a duck head. An auction will be held on Aug. 6. And, we have a special concert with Jed Wilson, featuring jazz singer Heather


Masse on June 7. I am writing to thank the two anonymous donors who have sponsored this concert. With the cost of the steeple project being supported by several years of hard work, the board would like to express our appreciation to those who have donated to the fund. And, the board gives a big shout out to those who have given us the opportunity to bring exceptional talent to the community and slowly improve our historic building. Since I do not know who the folks are that have been so generous, I just want to say “thank you from the bottom of our belfry!”      Susie Mosca, President  Brick Church for the Performing Arts Lovell

Whether you attend a local parade or ceremony, visit a memorial, or fly the American flag at half-staff until noon, it is important for all Americans, in their own way, to take this time to pay tribute to all those — generations past and present — who have fought for our freedom and the values that Americans hold so dear.

Navia service note

Army Pvt. Christopher A. Navia has graduated from the Fire Support Specialist Advanced Individual Training course at Fort Sill, Lawton, Okla. The field artillery specialists serve in intelligence activities including target processing in field artillery, cannon battalions, division artillery, artillery and maneuver brigade and headquarters and fire support elements. The course is designed to train students to establish, maintain, and operate radio and wire communications and speech security equipment, including encoding and decoding messag-

es. They also must prepare and maintain daily staff journals, fire support situation maps, charts and other fire support and target processing procedures, records, and documents. In addition, students assist in initiating requests for field artillery, mortar, naval gunfire, and aerial delivered munitions, and emplace, maintain, and assist in the operation of laser range finders, target designation, and night observation devices. Navia is the son of Rodrigo and Sandra Navia of Tuscarora Court, West Melbourne, Fla. He is a 2008 graduate of Fryeburg Academy.

NO MORE DUCT TAPE — Muddy River Signs put up a new sign April 26 at The Bridgton TwinDrive-in on Route 302, and it’s a welcome sight to drive-in owner John Tevanian. The old sign, with a reader board dating back to 1971, was looking decidedly shabby and creaky the last few years, and needed to be shored up with two-by-fours after the remnants of a hurricane Brig. Gen. Brent M. Boyles, Assistant Adjutant General for breezed through last August. “We’d been holding it up with duct tape,” Tevanian joked. The drive-in itself dates back to 1957. the Maine Army National Guard, announced the promotion of The movies in the photo are no longer playing; showing starting Friday on Screen 1 are Battleship and The Avengers; and on (Geraghty photo) Jared Lanham of Casco to private first class of Company B, Screen 2, a triple feature: Pirates, Men in Black II and Ghostrider II. 3/172 Infantry (Mountain).

Water conservation NORWAY — One product of a three-year watershed-services project involving Maine partners Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences and the Western Foothills Land Trust, is a newly-developed web-based program called the Clean Water Carbon Fund ( The website has been launched to fund tree planting in the Crooked River and other New England watersheds. The CWCF site was created and will be maintained by Manomet; visitors to the site are invited to make voluntary carbon offset contributions. There are tools on the site to calculate carbon offsets if desired, and contributions can be directed to specific watersheds in the program. Recognizing the integral relationship between a forested watershed upstream and clean drinking water downstream, the fund will provide white pines to be planted on lands that have been open for more than

ten years and that are within the watershed. Landowners who would like to have trees planted on their lands need to make a commitment to retain the trees for at least 40 years. Where hayfields are concerned, funds are available to compensate owners for the loss of hay income on an annual per acre basis. So far, the program has planted pines within the upper Connecticut River watershed on agricultural lands whose riparian buffers were heavily damaged by hurricane Irene last August. In Maine, the Western Foothills Land Trust has been actively looking for planting sites and willing landowners. If you have open lands within the watershed that have been in agriculture or are retired sand pit sites, and would welcome protecting the water quality of the river by allowing trees to be planted on your land, please contact Lee at 739-2124, wflt@

Hannaford Supermarkets and its customers worked together to contribute more than $13,000 in product and cash donations to help feed hungry individuals in the North Conway N.H. area through the 2011 Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger campaign. The North Conway Hannaford sold 1,208 Helping Hands boxes — full of the products that food pantries need the most. This total topped District 6 and triggered an additional $1,000 donation by Hannaford. Store Manager Jeffrey Cox presented that donation to mem-

Fryeburg. “We could not have helped these important organizations at this level without the support of our customers, local pantries and associates here at Hannaford,” Cox said. “People in this community understand the need and are passionate about taking care of each other.” Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger had three parts: Hannaford Helping Hands: Boxes of the grocery items that pantries most need were sold for $10 each. These boxes included dry cereal, oatmeal,

Senator Collins has been present for every roll call vote that has occurred in the Senate since she was sworn into office in January 1997. “Mainers are known for their strong values and work ethic. They hold their elected officials to these same high standards, and rightfully so. It continues to

be my great honor and privilege to serve in the U.S. Senate representing the people of Maine. This is a responsibility that I both enjoy and take very seriously,” said Senator Collins. In addition to not missing any recorded votes, Senator Collins continues to return home to Maine for weekends and during congressional recesses to meet with constituents, visit communities, businesses, and schools throughout the State, and to spend time at her home in Bangor.

have settled in North America thousands of years before the first “Native Americans” arrived, it was too much. I’ve been reading Stanford’s Across Atlantic Ice and it’s fascinating. He and colleague Bruce Bradley make a convincing case that ancient Solutrean people from around the Pyrenees in southern France and northern Spain came to North America more than 20,000 years ago. Solutreans were the ones who produced the remarkable paintings found in the Cave of Altamira in northern Spain as well as those of Lascaux in southern France. It is Solutrean stonework, however, that provides the bulk of the evidence that they may have migrated to the eastern seaboard of what is now the United States. The way Solutreans shaped various lithic (stone) tools was quite similar to how early “Clovis” cultures made their tools in North America. Stanford’s and Bradley’s hypothesis threatens many academics as well as Indians because historians have written countless books and articles insisting there were no humans in North or South America before Clovis cultures 14,000 years ago and that all Indian ancestors came across a land bridge from Asia where the Bering Strait is now. There’s biological evidence in the form of mitochondrial DNA of a connection between Solutrean people and Ojibwa Indians in North America, but Stanford and Bradley didn’t choose to cover it in Across Atlantic Ice. The question of how people came to North America has fascinated me since I was a boy. Although political controversy interests me too, it’s impeding research in this area and I wish it would go away. It won’t, of course, so I’ve had to weave it into this column. The next time I visit the subject though, I’ll try to stick to the science. It’s absolutely fascinating for history geeks like me.

Attorney Ed McBurney North Conway, NH (603) 356-9097

(Continued from Page D) America. So what is a Europeanlooking, Caucasian man doing in Washington state 9,000 years ago? Not only that, but the man had a primitive, stone spear point embedded in his hipbone. That was all too much for the local Umatilla Indians, who insisted that it be turned over to them for re-burial. They claimed that if the skeleton was found on land they considered their ancestral territory, Kennewick Man (as the skeleton was named) must be their ancestor. That’s patently ridiculous given that American Indian tribes were constantly warring on one another and shifting territories for centuries prior to European conquests. Nine thousand years is a long time in human history. It’s well into the prehistoric era, which means that no records — neither written nor traditional — exist to document anything from that time anywhere. So, for the Umatilla to claim that a skeleton over nine thousand years old would be Umatilla is ridiculous — something only “progressive” bureaucrats in the federal government would consider credible. Four or five other ancient skulls with Caucasian features found in other parts of the United States have been reexamined since Kennewick Man came to light, but local Indian tribes on those locations are trying to re-bury those as well. The “First People” myths are extremely important to modern Indian tribes. There’s big money in victimhood here in the early 21st century. Indians get billions in benefits from taxpayers, not to mention lucrative casino licenses, mostly because of treaties and the widespread perception that their lands were stolen by Europeans centuries ago. Uncovering archaeological data that casts any doubt on that narrative is very threatening to them. Evidence that Europeans might have been here almost 10,000 years ago is bad enough, but when Smithsonian anthropologist Dennis Stanford published a book in February of this year theorizing that Europeans may

Janice Hawkins-Donovan

Ruth P. Ristich

Jeanette S. Dickson

PORTLAND — Janice Malley Hawkins-Donovan, better known in later years as Sadie Hawkins-Donovan, died on May 19, 2012. She was born on March 31, 1927 in Newton, Mass., a daughter of James Francis and Marguerite (Burns) Malley. She attended Newton Country Day School, Centre St., Newton, Mass. from the second grade as a day student and later as a weekly boarder when her family moved to Somersworth, N.H. in 1939. She attended high school at Kenwood-Doane-Stuart in Albany, N.Y. She was a member of the high school field hockey and lacrosse teams. In 1948, she graduated from Manhattanville College, which was then located in New York City. She majored in history, and was on the varsity field hockey and lacrosse teams and class basketball team for four years. She also was in the Glee Club for four years and served on other extracurricular committees throughout her college career. After graduation, Janice worked in Boston for the State Adoption Agency, State Planning Board and State Civil Defense Agency. She married Edward F. Hawkins in 1952. He predeceased her in 1970. They lived in Norwood and Walpole, Mass. and Valley Cottage, N.Y. before moving to Portland in 1965. She worked for the Portland School Department for two and a half years as a teachers assistant while taking courses at the University of Southern Maine for her teacher’s certificate. She then worked at Maine Medical Center as a social worker for 20 years, retiring in 1989. Here, she got the nickname, “Sadie,” which stayed with her for the rest of her life. She was married to Judge Robert Donovan from 1988 until his death in 2009. They lived in Naples and later in Falmouth. They spent their winters at St. Simons Island, Ga. They both enjoyed golfing, fishing and playing bridge and cribbage. She volunteered at Naples Public Library and the Area Agency on Aging in Portland, visiting people who could no longer live in their home. She is survived by her four children, Gerard L. Hawkins of Arlington, Va., Janice A. Hawkins of Gorham, Christopher P. Hawkins of Portland and Edward F. Hawkins of Belmont, N.H.; two stepchildren, Susan Donovan Silver of Portland and Rob Donovan of Falmouth; three grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; four step-grandchildren; and two brothers, Fr. James Malley, SJ and John Malley. Visitation was held on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 from 4 to 6 p.m., at Conroy-Tully Crawford South Portland Chapel, 1024 Broadway, South Portland. A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at 10 a.m., at Holy Martyrs Catholic Church, 266 Foreside Road, Falmouth. Interment will be at a later date at Calvary Cemetery, South Portland. Online condolences may be expressed to the family through the Conroy-Tully Crawford Funeral Home at In lieu of flowers the family requests donations made in Sadie’s name to: The Alzheimer’s Foundation (

NORTH YARMOUTH — Ruth Pullen Ristich died peacefully at home on May 7, 2012 under the loving care of her family and caregivers. Her home is the same farm her grandparents Warren Winfield Scott Pullen and Josephine Ruth Curtis Pullen lived in since 1879. They were descended from Yarmouth residents, sea captain Joseph R. Curtis, Louisa Jane Sumner, and school teacher Baxter Pullen and Elizabeth Carlton and second wife Mary Pinkham of Leeds and Palermo. Ruth is the last surviving member of her generation from Leon Cecil Pullen and Julia Madelon Mellen’s four children, all born and raised in Portland. After graduating from Portland High in 1933, Ruth attended Westbrook Junior College for one year, then Harrisonburg Virginia State Teachers College (now James Madison University). After teaching Home Economics in Virginia at Crozet High School from 1937 to1940, she worked for the University of New Hampshire from 1940 to 1942 as a home demonstration agent in Carroll County. Traveling across the state in her 1941 Plymouth “woodie” station wagon, she taught workshops on practical domestic science skills, helping homemakers save money by teaching such skills as canning, upholstering, making mattresses from surplus cotton, re-seating, sewing, making dress forms. She also served as a judge at local fairs. In 1942, Ruth made history by joining the first class of 440 women officers and became a First Lieutenant in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps. Her tours of duty included attending Bakers & Cooks School in Fort Riley, Kansas, supervising instructors at the Bakers & Cooks School at Fort Ogelthorpe, Ga., and at Ft. Bragg, N.C., and Fort DesMoines, Iowa, supervising the officers’ mess. She became the base mess management officer for her last tour of duty with the Air Transport Command at Kindley Field in Bermuda, where she met her husband, celestial navigator Samuel S. Ristich. They were married at the Curtis home at 7 South Street, Yarmouth in November of 1945 and celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in 2007 before Sam died in 2008. After they moved to Ithaca, N.Y. in 1946 the GI Bill paid for their graduate degrees at Cornell University. Ruth completed a master’s degree in textiles and clothing and almost finished a master’s degree in education before starting a family. Ruth returned to teaching home economics in Patchogue, N.Y., and New Brunswick, N.J., after her five children were born. She also taught sewing at home, night school classes in upholstering and slipcover making, and during the summers worked in the public schools. Every summer, she’d pack her five children into the family VW bus and drive from New Jersey to Maine to visit the relatives in Portland and North Yarmouth, usually driving at nighttime. Ruth’s other interests included antique glass collecting, and quilt making, which she started at age 75. She helped organize making quilts to raffle off for the First Universalist Church in Yarmouth for many years. After retiring to the Pullen Family farm in 1981, Ruth belonged to the Fortnightly Club, the Victorian Society of Maine, the Portland Museum of Art, the Maine Historical Society, Yarmouth Historical Society, North Yarmouth Historical Society, The In Loving Memory of Jones Museum, Calico Quilters, My Mother Pine Tree State Quilters, and First Universalist Church of Yarmouth.

Jeanette S. Dickson, 98, of Naples, died on Saturday, May 19, 2012, at Bridgton Health Care Center.

So dear ones on Earth here’s my greeting look up till the day dawn appears and oh what an ocean awaits us beyond our parting tears. — LOVE Mom, Ritchie & Julie

Hazel E. Ellis May 28, 1923 – May 14, 2012

Hazel Evelyn Ellis passed on from this life in comfort and peace after a short illness. Her two sons, Gene (Chipper) Ellis of Westbrook, and James (Jim) Ellis of Newark, Del. were with her in the last hours. She was born Hazel Evelyn Morton at Elm Dale Farm in Edes Falls, the youngest of Ansel and Ola Morton’s four children. Educated at the Edes Falls Elementary School, she graduated from Casco High School in 1941. After jobs at the Thomas Lodge in South Casco and a factory in Westbrook, she went to Connecticut to work in a defense plant making parts for aircraft radios in the war effort. On their lunch break in May, 1945, she married Ashley Ellis of Bolsters Mills, and after the war ended they returned there to make a home and start a family. At her mother’s passing in 1956 the family, now four, moved back to Elm Dale Farm and the heart of her family. After raising her sons and at Ashley’s retirement she began a 25-year career working at Lighthouse Realty on the causeway in Naples. In those years she and Ashley became avid square dancers. They also bicycled far and wide for fun and exercise. When Ashley passed on in 2000 she left Elm Dale Farm for the last time to move closer to Chipper in Westbrook. At age 77 she put her bicycle away and began to walk the area around her new home, rain or shine, in heat or cold and made many new friends along the way. She marveled at a flock of 30 or more wild turkeys that walked daily through her front lawn and could stand in her driveway in the morning as they flew down out of their nesting trees all around her. She came to understand that if you look for it, even a little, every day is an adventure. Her last year was spent at the Inn at Village Square in Gorham. She was predeceased by her husband Ashley, sister Mona Webber, and brother Charles (Buster) Morton; and is survived by her brother, James (Coot) Morton, sisters-in-law, Evelyn Morton, Lorraine Morton, and Patricia Welch, her sons, Gene and wife Deborah, and James and wife Mary Anne, and her grandchildren, Jonathan and Kathryn, along with many nieces and nephews. The family would like to express their deep gratitude to the staff of the Inn at Village Square in Gorham and the nurses of 4B in Mercy Hospital, Portland for their loving, respectful care of Hazel in her last months and hours. In lieu of flowers donations to either the Naples Public Library or Rescue Squad would be appreciated. There will be a private family gathering at the Edes Falls Cemetery in the summer. 1T21X

If there was open water with a fish in it he would be there.” In 1986 he moved to Maine permanently when he married Deborah Lombard Farnsworth. They made their home in Cape Elizabeth.

RAYMOND — Hole In The Wall Studioworks is pleased to welcome a new artist, CarenMarie Michel, to the gallery. Michel is a fulltime Maine studio artist, and she is a devoted plein air painter. Her paintings explore the urban, industrial and pastoral images of Maine. She has had numerous exhibits throughout Maine and New England. Currently, she is in a threeartist group show at the Hole In The Wall Gallery. The two other

Maine artists in this exhibit are: Laurie Rothrock, whose large colorful abstract paintings are beautiful and compelling, and Tracy Sunday Mastro, who is showing her new imaginary organic forms that resemble something seen in the woods or a pond. These are little treasures of hand-formed copper and kiln-fired layers of glass. This is an interesting and varied exhibit by three accomplished artists with a unique vision. Stop in during the gallery’s

Memorial Weekend Open House this Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Enjoy refreshments while you view the current exhibit, and shop the new handcraft and jewelry collections.

WATERFORD — The weekend of June 1 and 2 at the Waterford World’s Fair fairgrounds will be all “a-buzz” with a fundraiser of camping, a motorcycle ride, and two passes to the dance on Saturday night with the Rockin’ Roadrunners. The charge will be $40 for two nights of camping, a bonfire with social time Friday night, a motorcycle ride starting at 10 a.m. to Evans Notch and back

through Bethel, and two passes to the dance. The fair’s food shack will be open all day Saturday, with the usual hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries, soda and some homemade desserts, and the ice cream shop will be open for soft serve cones for $1. The money raised will go toward a new freezer for the ice cream shop, as they recently purchased a new ice cream machine and

now need a freezer for hardserve ice cream. After the motorcycle ride on Saturday, there will be a bike wash for $3 each. Check-in time on Friday will be 3 p.m., and checkout will be 11 a.m. Sunday. The fee for just the bike ride (without camping) is $10, and the dance without camping costs $10 per person. For more information or to make reservations, contact

Penny Hill at 461-5466. Those who come will see many new improvements at the fairgrounds, such as the new ATV and antique tractor pulling track, a food shop that has been added to the livestock office, a new surface on the show ring, the area where the camping will be, and the door and window that have been added to the secretary office, just to mention a few.

Masse and Wilson to perform at The Brick Church LOVELL — What can you expect when you pair Heather Masse with Jed Wilson, and place them in a venue with perfect acoustics? A stunning, intoxicating, extravaganza of jazz, folk and blues. The Brick Church for the Performing Arts in Lovell, Maine is pleased to welcome Heather home and to introduce Jed to the neighborhood for this once-in-a-lifetime benefit concert on Thursday, June 7. This dynamic and engaging duo performs in theaters and venues across the country, including guest spots on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. They have been kind enough to lend their talents to help Lovell’s historic Brick Church — now a well-loved performance space — raise funds to rebuild its belfry. New York-based singer-songwriter Heather Masse grew up in rural Maine and began singing at an early age. Trained at the New England Conservatory of Music as a jazz singer, she is steeped in the jazz tradi-

Heather Masse tion, which informs her distinct approach to singing folk, pop and bluegrass. A member of the Billboard-charting folk super group, The Wailin’ Jennys, Heather has performed at top venues, sharing the stage with the world’s most acclaimed pop, classical and jazz acts, including Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Bruce Cockburn, Joan Osborne, Bruce Hornsby

and the Boston Pops Orchestra. She has been a frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion, both as a solo performer and as a member of The Jennys.   Heather’s many recordings include her solo debut album “Bird Song” (Red House Records, 2009). The Wailin’ Jennys’ newest recording, “Bright Morning Stars” (February 2011, Red House),

features original songs from all three members of the band and was nominated for a Juno Award. Recently, Heather’s song Bird Song from “Bright Morning Stars” won first prize in the duo/group category at the International Acoustic Music Awards. Jed Wilson grew up in Gladstone, Oregon, and began studying piano at a young age. As a teenager, he was an active performer on the Portland, Oregon jazz scene, and won prestigious awards (including Downbeat Magazine’s “Best High School Jazz Soloist” honor three years in a row). Wilson received a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Performance from New England Conservatory in 2004. While still a student at NEC, he formed a long-standing musical partnership with renowned jazz vocalist (and NEC faculty member) Dominique Eade. The duo has toured widely, and in 2006 released a critically acclaimed CD that appeared on many of the year’s Top 10 album lists. In his review, Bill Beuttler of The Boston Globe wrote, “Wilson’s

Jed Wilson piano work, skilled and subtle, made plain why a guy so young has become Eade’s duo partner of choice.” Jed currently resides in Lovell. He not only teaches jazz piano at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham and at Mountain Top Music, but also finds the time to astound local church congregations with his enviable organ virtuosity.    Heather and Jed met as jazz

students at The New England Conservatory of Music and have been performing together ever since — for more than 10 years. Their live show mixes a range of music: original, folk, jazz, blues, and country. Their collaboration has resulted in two albums and a host of appearances across North America. In 2008, Heather released “Many Moons,” an EP of jazz-inspired folk duets with Jed.  It is rare indeed to hear artists like Heather and Jed in an informal, local setting. The concert audience will enjoy an extraordinary opportunity and help support the efforts of the Brick Church for the Performing Arts to restore a great local architectural masterpiece. The Masse-Wilson concert will take place on Thursday, June 7, at 7:30 p.m., at the Brick Church for the Performing Arts on Christian Hill Road in Lovell. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door; refreshments will be served at intermission. For more information, call 925-2792 or go to

Saco River Theatre hosts special one-time screening BUXTON — A special, onetime screening of Dan Wood’s documentary, Making of West, will be presented on Saturday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Saco River Theatre (29 Salmon Falls Road) in Buxton. The feature film, 40 WEST, written by and starring Jennifer Nichole Porter, directed by Dana Packard, and featuring the late Scott Winters, Brian A. White, Kathleen Kimball, and legendary entertainer Wayne Newton, was shot entirely in Buxton and

Hollis in April and May of 2010 — primarily on a set built in the Saco River Grange Hall (now The Saco River Theatre.) Since its premiere in New York City in October, 2011, the critically acclaimed film has won or been nominated for 16 U.S. and international awards. Dan Wood’s 40-minute documentary chronicles the making of 40 WEST, and includes multiple interviews and great footage of all aspects of the production.

After the screening, delicious food will be provided by Wayne Tuohey of Cue Culture. Jennifer, Dana and other members of the cast and crew will be on hand to chat. If you are interested in the nuts and bolts of independent filmmaking, this event is not to be missed! The documentary is suitable for all ages. Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for students and seniors. Reservations are strongly advised. Call 207-929-5412.

The Making of West documentary offers an inside look at the production of the acclaimed film.
