Hope for closure

After 12 years, Torres family simply wants to bring Tony home By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer DENMARK — Ramona Torres’ heart breaks every single day that goes by without any news of the whereabouts of her son, Tony. “Every day seems like it just happen,” she said, clutching a framed photograph of Tony inside her Denmark home. “It’s a tough time of the year for us.” In April, the Torres family celebrated Tony’s birthday. He would have been 33 years old. Twelve years ago, Angel “Tony” Torres was last seen in Biddeford at 2 a.m. near a store. He had been out with friends, and later dropped off. Reportedly, he was looking for a ride to North Conway, N.H. That was the last time the 21-year-old college student was seen. The date is firmly etched in Ramona’s memory. May 21, 1999 — the last time Tony was seen alive. Tony had returned home for Mother’s Day weekend, and

He was excited about his new apartment/condominium. He

told his mother he would call her again on a Thursday, figuring his new telephone would be in service. “Thursday came and went with no phone call. There was a message earlier when he was moving. I didn’t want to erase it because I had a funny feeling about it,” Ramona recalled. “I was very emotional that evening. I went into the bathroom and cried. I didn’t know why I was crying. I had a bad feeling something was wrong. It wasn’t about him moving on (into his own place).” Sunday came and went without any word from Tony despite repeated phone calls from his family. “He always called. He knows how much I worry,” Ramona said. “I called some of his friends at Framingham to see if they knew where he was or if they had a new number.” A friend told Ramona that Tony was in Maine.

SAD 61 heads back to drawing board

By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer When the SAD 61 proposed budget failed for a second time last week, this time by a mere 16 votes, officials were left to wonder, “How much do we cut now? Interim Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Beecher cautioned the school board Monday night that a “clear” mandate had not been

sent. “If the margin had been 50 to 150, I would say the message was very clear that taxpayers want to see more cuts,” she said last week. “16 votes, however, is not a mandate.” The school board decided Monday night to ask the district’s Leadership Team to bring back possible cuts that would produce the “least amount of

impact” upon students and programs. After the first budget proposal was rejected, SAD 61 administrators presented the school board with a shopping list that totaled over $300,000 in possible cuts. The board, however, decided to trim back the budget by $172,00. Taxpayers made the cut a little deeper by tagging on $90,000 (funds that would have

supported the Grade 8 Summit — a remedial program to bring students up to proficiency levels before allowing them to move on to high school — which no longer had sufficient student enrollment) at the district budget meeting for a total of $262,000. Leadership Team recommendations will be discussed at the SAD 61, Page 3A

Fireworks song sparks ‘flash mob’

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — Sporting redwhite-and-blue leis, Amanda Krug and Jennifer Reissfelder finished a meal at Rick’s Café and found a spot on the sidewalk to catch the Fourth of July parade. The two women didn’t know their choices on the Causeway would put them front and center for a pleasant surprise. As Katy Perry’s hit single, Fireworks, started emitting from nearby speakers, “We thought it was just part of the parade.”

Suddenly, about 20 people shot onto the street and began dancing in unison to the song so appropriate for Independence Day festivities. “It was the first time I had seen a flash mob,” Krug said. “And, we had front row seats,” Reissfelder added. For the next three minutes and 43 seconds, the group led by Zumba instructor Vickie Toole executed the routine they had practiced during the week prior to the performance on the Causeway. “It was exhilarating. The crowd went wild,” Toole said,

of the cheering, whistles and in-time clapping that erupted from spectators. Toole’s two daughters were among those who grooved to the upbeat music. Olivia Toole, 10, said it was an awesome experience — one she has relived by watching the videotaping on YouTube, where it was downloaded under Maine flash mob dance. “I think it was interesting to dance and surprise everyone,” Olivia said. Her younger sister, sevenyear-old Brooke, wasn’t so thrilled about having a live

audience. “It was kind of embarrassing ‘cause it was in front of all those people,” Brooke said. Another seven-year-old dancer, Danielle Gordon, tossed aside any apprehension about performing in public. “I was really excited, and I thought that it would be fun to surprise people,” she said. “I felt like no one could judge me, and I was free to dance however I wanted,” Gordon said. “I was really psyched to be in a flash mob,” she said.

Shore violation nets $5,000 fine

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer A couple who built a 10-foot by 12-foot deck on their new home, on Highland Lake in Bridgton, have agreed to remove it and will pay a $5,000 fine for having violated the Town of Bridgton Shoreland Zoning Ordinance. Bridgton Code Enforcement Officer Rob Baker told selectmen here last week that Thomas J. and Kimberly M. Buonopane and town officials have been cooperating with each other in an attempt to reach an outof-court settlement for the violation at the property the couple owns at 86 Highland Road. Baker said he and Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz negotiated the consent agreement with the Buonopanes and their attorney on behalf of the town. The selectmen unanimously agreed to accept the consent agreement at their June 28 meeting. The town’s Shoreland Zoning Ordinance authorizes municipal officers to enter into an administrative consent agreement for the purpose of eliminating violations of the ordinance and recovering fines without court action. Under the terms of the consent agreement Buonopanes have agreed: • to remove the 10-foot by 12-foot deck at the southwest corner of the structure within 90 days of the signed agreement; • that a walkway no larger than four feet wide leading from the screened porch to the lower deck will be allowed, however it must comply with the 2009 International Code; • that the area below the removed deck shall be re-vegetated with native plants and have soil stabilization during the growing period; • that there shall be no further expansion of the structure on the south and southwesterly side; • to voluntarily pay a $5,000 fine by official bank check, payable to the Town of Bridgton, by 4 p.m. on July 5, 2011. In return, the Town agrees to relinquish its right to prosecute the land owner/property owner for violating the ordinance in consideration of the land owner’s/property owner’s promise to pay a fine; except that, if the landowner breaches the terms of the agreement by failing to pay the fine, or if the land owner/property owner fails to remediate the impacted area by the agreed deadline or expands this violation or creates another violation, the Town then may institute appropriate court proceedings to enforce the provisions of the ordinance, without refund of the $5,000 fine and the land owner/property owner shall be liable and reimburse the Town for all expenses incurred by the Town from the date of action against the violation.

FLASH MOB SCENE suddenly appeared in front of Rick’s Cafe in Naples prior to the start of the Fourth of July parade.

The “flash mob” proved to be quite entertaining for those who were patiently awaiting the start of the parade.

SAD 61 back to drawing board

(Continued from Page A) board’s July 14 meeting, to be held at 7 p.m. at Lake Region Middle School. Directors will then decide whether to make additional cuts. The warrant will be signed on July 18, thus setting up the next district budget meeting for Aug. 9 and referendum vote in the four towns on Aug. 16. By state law, a school district has 60 days to hold their next budget meeting and validation referendum vote. In the meantime, SAD 61 will be operating on the budget passed at the district meeting last month, until a new budget is approved by validation vote. Where to cut? Sebago Director Richard Merritt heard a clear message at the district meeting and later, taxpayers want to see $125,000 taken from the overall high school renovation/construction project fund to pay for PCB removal rather than money stripped from the general budget. “I think the voters spoke quite clearly about this. By taking this money out of the budget, there would be no added cuts to programs that would impact students,” he said. “It would be quick, easy and it doesn’t require administrators.” Casco Director Phil Shane, who serves on the district’s Facilities Committee, said the high school project is already running into possible cost overruns (electrical needs), and SAD 61 is already committed financially to various aspects ANOTHER GOOD CATCH BY AN INSPECTOR — A cour- of the project — including tesy inspector recently found milfoil on a boat headed for PCB removal, which has been Kezar Lake in Lovell. As shown in the file photo above, milfoil required by federal officials. is one pest that everyone should be concerned about. Director Janice Barter of

Naples pointed out that the $125,000 targets PCB removal involving windows to the backside of the high school, which were not part of the renovation/construction project. The EPA has given SAD 61 two to three years to complete full PCB removal. Merritt, however, contended that if SAD 61 had reduced funds available, the district would not be in “breach of contract” for work spelled out on a project list if the contractor had yet to begin that particular phase. Barter reminded Merritt that the high school project had been scaled back from its original $20 million price tag down to $13.8 million, leaving little to no frills. Over their two-hour meeting, directors pinpointed certain budget lines, such as technology and transportation, that could use more review. Discussion heated to a point that Bridgton Director Leslie Niemy suggested that when the next budget season arrives, it was time to put “everything” on the table for review, including the possibility of closing Sebago Elementary. “We have a school that has just 100 kids. It’s lovely, but maybe it is something the district can no longer afford,” Niemy said. “We have to look at possible ways that we can cut the budget without having an effect on students and programs.” Immediately, Merritt responded regarding Sebago Elementary closure talk, “That sounds like extortion.” Niemy and Merritt agreed it might be time to look at the

Trained courtesy boat inspectors, both paid and volunteer, monitor boat launches during high traffic periods and inspect boats, trailers and related equipment for invasive aquatic plants while taking time to educate owners on steps to self-inspect and remove vegetation from boating and fishing equipment. In 2010 alone, these 650 trained inspectors logged more than 37,000 hours while conducting nearly 73,000 inspections at 154 launch sites on 119 water bodies, an impressive 15,000 inspections more than in 2009.

Garage/Vocational Building is behind schedule. If the facility is not ready by September, some vocational classes may be shifted to Bridgton Memorial, for a short period of time. This would require SAD 61 to “turn on the power and water.” Other suggestions for possible cuts was for the new assistant superintendent to also serve as Adult Ed director (Adult and Community Ed Director Zane Clement left the post this year). Last week, directors approved the hiring of Deborah Howard of Sebago as assistant superintendent, succeeding Beecher. Howard, who has worked the past 27 years in the SAD 6 (Bonny Eagle) school system, has served as an assistant principal for several years, Beecher said. Interim Superintendent Beecher doubted the assistant superintendent could wear both hats, saying the Adult Ed job SAD 61, Page A

The find of an invasive plant fragment on a boat about to be launched into a Lovell lake is a reminder of the importance of boat inspections this boating season, say scientists with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. Of Maine’s nearly 6,000 lakes, only 33 of them are currently known to be infested with invasive aquatic plants, which can hijack the habitat of native fisheries, flora and fauna; degrade water quality; diminish property values; and reduce water recreation opportunity including fishing, boating and swimming. The department’s Invasive Aquatic Species Program manages a contract with the Bridgton-based Lakes Environmental Association to run the Courtesy Boat Inspection Program, which is funded through the sales of

district’s busing policy. Merritt pointed out that other districts transport all children on one run, unlike SAD 61 which has two runs — one for high school and middle school students, and one for elementary-age children. Merritt said some people wonder why older brothers and sisters can’t ride the same bus as their siblings? Naples Director Beth Chaplin liked Niemy’s suggestion, adding the school board should take a closer look to see if “socalled savings” of past building closures have indeed been realized. She pointed at Bridgton Memorial, which was closed by SAD 61 and offered to the Town of Bridgton. Shane says Bridgton officials are interested in taking over ownership of the property, but remains in the process of site tests. Shane added that SAD 61 may need to reopen the school for a short time this fall because construction of the new Bus

(Continued from Page A) requires “a different skill set,” especially in the area of grant writing, which Clement “did an outstanding job.” “I think people would be shocked at the amount of money Zane (Clement) brought in,” Casco Director Donna Norton said. “I would also be concerned about losing the quality we have in this program right now.” Norton said directors should take a closer look at the supply lines, which she says skyrocketed over the past three years. “I was shocked by the enormous increases,” she said. Naples Director Erica Pond-Green and Sebago Director Greg Smith encouraged the board to be more focused in their next step, suggesting the board should be specific — such as telling administrators to come up with cuts that would total 1%. “We’re not getting feedback (from the public), so we’re going to do what we need to do,” she said. “If people get wound up enough, maybe they’ll show up at a meeting. Stevens Brook Elementary School Principal Cheryl Turpin recommended that the school board make a greater public awareness push about the budget, as well as provide an “accurate” figure regarding per pupil cost. Under 10% The overall turnout for last week’s referendum was slightly better than the May vote (8% to 7%). The total number of registered voters for the four-town school district is 11,466, of which 974 went to the polls. At the May vote, 853 went to the polls as the budget was rejected by a 473-380 margin. Here’s how the vote went: Bridgton, 355 voters out of 3,940 (9%), 197 yes, 158 no. Casco, 204 voters out of 3,216 (7%), 85 yes, 129 no. Naples, 261 voters out of 2,884 (9%), 131 yes, 130 no. Sebago, 144 voters out of 1,426 (10%), 66 yes, 78 no. The bill Every time a budget is sent to local taxpayers, there is a cost attached. The price tag for the first referendum held on May 24 totaled $8,674 — the major reason for the hefty cost was the use of electronic ballots, pushing the amount to $4,398. Here’s the rest of the breakdown: Printing of the annual report, $2,079 Photocopying of ballots for Sebago, $34 Developing warrants, ballots, etc. (four hours), $92 Postage to deliver warrants, $529 Mileage to deliver warrants, annual reports to post offices and notice of amounts to town offices, $80 Moderator, $50 Town of Naples clerks, $233 Town of Bridgton clerks, $649 Set up of annual report (16 hours), $369 Time delivering warrants (7 hours), $161. The last referendum held on June 30 carried a bill of $3,741 — a major reduction due to the use of paper ballots, which were developed and printed at the Central Office. Here’s the breakdown: Printing of flyer (twice), $1,190 Ballot photocopying (paper cost), $18 Postage for mailing flyer, $537 Town of Naples clerks, $435 Town of Bridgton clerks, $807 Moderator, $50 Mileage to deliver warrants/flyers/notice of amounts, $80 Set-up flyer (8 hours), $184 Developing warrants, ballots and other forms (4 hours), $92 Printing and folding ballots (9 hours), $207.

‘Flash mob’ on Causeway (Continued from Page A) Spectator Mona Barck witnessed the flash mob dance with her two sons. Immediately after it finished, she called a friend on her cell phone to share what she had just seen. “I thought that was awesome,” said the Massachusetts resident, who typically travels to Naples for the Fourth of July weekend. Joshua Barck, 8, said he has seen videos of “a famous flash mob dance at an England train station,” but this was the first time he had seen one in real life.

“It doesn’t happen every year,” he said. Naples resident Andrea Dacko suggested performing a flash mob dance to friend Toole. With a newly paved Causeway lined with spectators, the Fourth of July offered a perfect opportunity to illustrate the zeal of Zumba dancing, and for community members to participate in the flash mob trend, she said. While Dacko’s teenage daughter videotaped the dance on her cell phone, Dacko’s aunt waved an American flag — acting with Dacko as “color

guard” during the whirlwind exhibition. (Aunt) Marge Dacko was celebrating her birthday along with the Nation’s birthday. “Every year for my birthday, they have a parade and let off fireworks at night,” Marge Dacko joked as she sat on a bench waiting for the cue to take to the streets. “This year, I am going to be in my first flash mob,” she said. Andrea said of Marge, “She is one of those people who are always game for a new experience.”

Open house at Dead River

Vendors sought for Back to Past

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Open houses held so far this summer at Scribner’s Mill have been well attended, leading organizers to believe they’ll have a strong turnout at this year’s 20th anniversary of Back to the Past, set for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6 and 7, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. The next open house will be held on Saturday, July 16, from 1 to 4 p.m., and will feature a demonstration of barrel-making. Visitors can participate in the making of the barrels, which are also available for purchase at $35 or $45 each. New this year will be an Antique Fair, and organizers are seeking dealers who would like to set up a 12’ x 12’ popup tent

and display their old-time treasures. Booths cost $20, or dealers can donate an item to the live auction, which will be held on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. Back to the Past will also feature a Farmers’ Market on Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Booth space for the market costs $10, and any local farmers or bakers who would like to display their home grown and homemade goods are asked to contact Event Coordinator Marilyn Hatch at 583-6455 or e-mail her at Hatch is also asking exhibitors (spinners, weavers, basket makers, etc.), sponsors and members of Scribner’s Mill Preservation, Inc. to donate an item for the oldfashioned live auction. Support from the local business communi-

ty in putting on Back to the Past has been strong over its 20-year history, and organizers are hoping businesses will also donate an item for the live auction. A big turnout is expected, in particular, to come see the seven or eight teams of oxen demonstrate their pulling abilities. Oxen were traditionally used to haul logs to the mill to be made into lumber, shingles, clapboard and barrels, and Dottie Bell of Waterford will lead demonstrations for the oxen teams separately and as a group throughout the weekend. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Back to the Past, Back to the Future,” emphasizing the mill’s mission to bring the past into the future to create a working sawmill museum for

year-round education of the public. Scribner’s Mill, which operated from 1847 to 1962, is the only mid-19th century sash sawmill remaining in North America that remains on its original site and still has much of its original equipment, thanks in part to Jesse Scribner, who kept operating the mill the old-fashioned way long after other mills had transitioned to more modern technology. Electricity for the mill and homestead came from water power, and Scribner’s Mill Preservation, Inc. strongly believes the mill still has the potential to be operated again this way, if only for demonstration purposes in education. The nonprofit corporation is continuing to work with the state’s PAST, Page A

Jeep hits Highland Road garage

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer A 23-year-old Bridgton man was charged with driving to endanger, after the Jeep he was allegedly driving struck a parked pick-up truck and a house on Highland Road across from the

thought to enter the annual Rotary Club Duck Race over the Fourth of July, held on Main Street at Stevens Brook Bridge. This year something told her to do it. As she sat on the ledge with her children, waiting for the duck drop, she silently repeated the number of her blue duck in her head and said, “918’s gonna win, 918’s gonna win.” When her name was announced as the big $500 winner, Morse was waiting right in front of the Duck Race T-shirt table. “I just had a feeling,” she said. Pictured with Morse, at left, are daughter Madison Morse, 9 (holding a blue duck), her younger friend Lila, 5, Allison Morse, 14, with incoming Rotary President Cathy Sullivan at right. The second place duck, worth $250, belonged to Debbie Witham, and Jim Schmidt’s duck came in third, winning him $100. Around 1,100 ducks were bought this year at $5 each, netting the Rotary Club around $5,000, which will be used mostly to support youth programs in the community. (Geraghty Photo)

IN MEMORY OF TONY — As a tribute, as well as a way to cope with loss, Ramona Torres created this memory garden for her son, Tony. Friends stop by from time to time either to say ‘Hi” to the Torres family or leave a momento. (Rivet Photo)

Hope remains for closure

(Continued from Page A) ing with Tony’s girlfriend, the Torres called police. “The police kept telling us that he is 21 and probably off doing something. I told them no, that’s not what my son would do,” she said. Ramona learned that Tony took a bus from Boston and had planned to meet some friends in Biddeford. “He never told me he was coming to Biddeford. We had no ideas who these friends were. He went to Bonny Eagle for a few years, so was that the connection? Tony was a sociable kid. A lot of people liked him. He was a good friend,” she said. Through their investigation, police did learn that Tony indeed met some individuals in Biddeford. As time went on and no breaks in the case surfaced, Ramona started to hear speculation such as Tony was involved in drugs and had been killed. “There was hope that the police would find him. Our emotions were all over the place from being optimistic when a tip would come in to major disappointment and a lot of crying when nothing seemed to be happening. Yes, we heard people talk, but no one really knows what happened. We just don’t know,” she said. “As parents, you try to give your children a good foundation. We have good values, and passed them along to our children. Then, they go off on their own. We can’t be with them all the time. Sometimes, they make bad decisions. Tony may have made a bad choice, and it cost him his life. He was a good person. We raised a good, young man.” Not knowing where a child is “an awful feeling, like a cloud over you constantly,” Ramona said. “You try to be happy and compensate, but it is always there. My husband and kids have been supportive. It’s a cloud over all of us.” The case has also frustrated

police. “It’s been a difficult case. We do have some specific information regarding activity when he (Tony) was last seen. We’ve talked with people he was with up to the time he disappeared, but we have not had anyone step forward with eye witness information,” said Lt. Brian McDonough of the Maine State Police. Although a decade has passed since Tony disappeared and his family has declared him “deceased” in 2004, the investigation remains open. Lt. McDonough said every three to five years, a cold case is reassigned to another detective. “After a while, you want a new set of eyes to take a look at all the information,” he said. “Unfortunately, the case is at a standstill.” Maine has 19 active missing person cases. According to websites such as The Doe Network and The Charley Project, there are over 9,000 cold cases nationally, about 177 in New England. The sites contain photographs, vital statistics at the time of disappearance, as well as details of the disappearance. Most importantly, a phone number of the investigating agency is listed. The Maine State Police number is 657-3030 — a number Ramona hopes someone will “find it in their heart to provide information about Tony so we can finally bring him home,” Ramona said. Heartbreak of not knowing Every time Ramona sees a news story of a person going missing, she deeply feels for the families as they cope with “not knowing.” “The pain in your heart of not knowing is incredible. It’s very difficult to cope with. We’ve learned to live with it, but it never goes away,” she said. “It’s the most painful thing you can go through. Not to be able to bring him home and give him a proper burial is awful, it’s wrong. All I want to know where he is.”

Ramona has developed a close friendship with a woman in New Jersey whose son also went missing at Carrabassett Valley. “She is one of the only close friends I have because no one wants to talk about it,” Ramona said. “ When Krista Dittmeyer disappeared, Ramona wanted to reach out to her family to offer comfort. But, she waited, knowing all the emotions the family was experiencing during the early days of the investigation. When news broke that Dittmeyer’s body had been found and arrests were made in her murder, Ramona felt two strong emotions. “I was very sad for the family, knowing they had lost a child. I know the pain,” she said. “And yet, I also felt relief. At least, they got their daughter back. It’s really hard not to know where Tony is. We just want him back. We’ve accepted that he has passed, but we want to bring his body home. We just want someone to come forward to give us the chance to bring our son home.” Although they held out hope early on that Tony would surface somewhere, as time passed, they suspected their son had been murdered. “After a while, we just hoped that someone would find his body. He’s in Biddeford somewhere,” she said. “I don’t know how anyone can live with that knowledge; knowing the strain you are putting on a family.” Ramona fears as she and her husband age, they might never learn where their son is. A scholarship in Tony’s memory has been created, and a special garden graces the Torres’ front yard in honor of their missing son. Tony’s friends stop by from time to time. “I grieve in the garden. I can feel his spirit there. I talk to him,” Ramona said. “I just hope one day that we can bring Tony where he should be — home.”

(Continued from Page A) his name was used in Philadelphia two days after his disappearance. His Jeep has never been found. Anonymous reports persist that he was murdered. Rumors that he and his Jeep are in a quarry in Greenville abound, and several quarries have been searched over the years. Bonnie K. Ledford Missing since: 1980 Town: Dedham Nineteen-year-old Bonnie K. Ledford disappeared in 1980. Bonnie and her husband moved to Maine from Michigan in 1979, and were estranged at the time of her disappearance. Human remains were discovered in 2001 near the Ledford’s former residence. Artifacts found in the area of these remains strongly suggest the remains are that of Bonnie Ledford. A familial DNA sample is sought for confirmation. William Garlick and John Joyce Missing since: 1982 Town: Bangor/Alton William Garlick, date of birth 3-18-55, and John Joyce, date of birth 6-15-49, left Worcester, Mass. on Sept. 13, 1982 en route to Alton, Maine to collect a $22,000 debt. They were operating a black 1980 Corvette, Mass. Registration 512-EVZ. The Corvette was found in the parking lot of the Bangor Mall on Sept. 14. The ignition was torn apart, as well as the interior of the vehicle. A man’s wallet, belonging to William Garlick, was found on the seat of the vehicle. John Joyce and William Garlick have not been seen since. Jesse O. Hoover Missing since: 1983 Town: Millinocket Jesse Hoover was reported missing on July 11, 1983 by her sister. Hoover traveled to Maine from Texas to hike the Appalachian Trail. She was last seen on May 20, 1983 at the Baxter State Park Headquarters. Hoover was an epileptic and had no special equipment or knowledge to aid her while hiking. At the time of her disappearance, Hoover was 54 years old, 5-foot-10 and weighed 240 pounds. She was wearing blue jeans, blue shirt, blue windbreaker and a blue knapsack. Leonard Price Missing since: 1983 Town: Eddington Leonard Price, date of birth Oct. 17, 1959, was reported missing from his home on Route 9 in Eddington on April 14, 1983. He is considered a danger to himself. Kitty I. Wardwell Missing since: 1983 Town: Holden On June 6, 1983, Kitty I. Wardwell (Collins) was last seen by her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Frank Julian. William Desmond, a close friend of Kitty’s, reported her missing on July 11, 1983. Julian told Salem, N.H. police that he dropped her at the El Rancho Motel in Salem after a fight and traveled back to Maine without her. On Nov. 23, 1983, Marla Collins, Wardwell’s sister, reported her missing to the Maine State Police. Subsequent investigation indicates that Wardwell likely was a victim of foul play in Maine. Wardwell was 29 years old, 5-foot-7, 120 pounds, brown eyes and shoulder length brown hair at the time of her disappearance. Kay Myers Johnson Missing since: 1986 Town: Monson Kay Myers Johnson, age 80 at the time of her disappearance, went missing from her home in Monson sometime between noon on Aug. 23, 1986 and 4 p.m. on Aug. 24. Mrs. Johnson had difficulty walking and had poor eyesight. Warden searches were unsuccessful. Philip Letarte Missing since: 1986 Town: Woodland Philip Letarte, 65, left the Tibbetts Road home of Robert Ericson in Woodland on June 2, 1986 around 3 p.m. Letarte told Ericson that he was going to Gary’s Exxon in New Sweden

Poetry Slam at Brick Church

poets hip-hop down the aisles, dancing along the old pews? Area poets are welcome to come to the Lovell slam and present their original work. The opening poet for the evening will be Diana McClellan from Conway, N.H. Several of the poets who will be performing at the Brick Church have been to the 2010 National Poetry Slam. Krista Mosca, who has been hailed as a powerful new writer, has also performed at the Women of the World Poetry Slam and the Individual World Poetry Slam. Her break-out performance at Underground Indies in 2010 exploded her onto the scene, with poets from all over asking, “Who is this little girl with the great big voice?” The first National Poetry Slam competition took place in 1990 with only two teams and one individual poet, but this year more than 80 teams will be represented in the fiveday National Championship in August. Some serious talent has been unveiled in these democratic events. To date, four poets who have competed at the national level have been honored with literary fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts. Lovell’s first poetry slam will take place on Thursday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m., at the Brick Church for the Performing Arts on Christian Hill Road. Tickets ($10) will be available at the door; refreshments will be served at intermission. For more information, call 9252792 or go to

She fancies herself both eccentric and elegant!”) and Elaine McMichael (Pierre, the Loony Impressionist, “Pierre is my alter ego. He displays my passion as an artist, embodies my delight and joy in creating whimsical wild animals in a profusion of vivid color, and captures my admiration for the Impressionists and how powerfully they influence my painting techniques.”) Check the gallery’s website ( to see all of the loons up for auction.

Davy Sturtevant will also take the stage on Friday, according to Swett, who likened Sturtevant’s sound to that of James Taylor. “I’d say Davy’s a ‘must see’,” he said.

LOVELL — Poetry slams have been called “the democratization of verse.” Also, “no place for wimps.” Also (by literary critic Harold Bloom), “the death of art.” Come decide for yourself — and, if you like, participate — on Thursday, July 14, when the Brick Church for the Performing Arts presents Lovell’s first poetry slam, thanks to poet Krista Mosca and the team that will be accompanying her to Boston next month to compete in the National Poetry Slam. Slam poetry is a form of competitive performance poetry in which participants recite or read works no longer than three minutes and are judged by randomly-picked audience members. No props, music, or costumes are allowed. A panel of five judges scores each participant from 0-10. But as former Asheville, N.C. slammaster Allan Wolf remarked, “The points are not the point; the point is poetry.” The phrase has become a mantra of sorts, reminding poets and organizers that the goal of slam is to grow poetry’s audience. Indeed, the poetry slam movement has created huge enthusiasm about poetry among young people across the nation. Slams are all about the art of the spoken word, and most (including the Lovell slam) are open to all audience members. Any style is welcome. When construction worker and poet Marc Smith started the first poetry slam at a Chicago jazz club in the 1980s, anything could and did happen. “The experimenters in this new style of poetry presentation gyrated, rotated, spewed, and stepped their words along the bar top, dancing between the bottles, bellowing out the backdoor, standing on the street or on their stools, turning the west side of Chicago into a rainforest of dripping whispers or a blast furnace of fiery elongated syllables, phrases, snatches of scripts, and verse that electrified the night,” he said. What might happen in the Brick Church slam? Will words take flight on the new Transformit “wings” behind the stage? Will clarion couplets ring the bell in the belfry? Will

Summer scene

SLL Music Festival presents Joel Noyes contrast, Bartók’s Rhapsody No. I for violin and piano, written for a virtuoso violinist friend in 1928 in the form of a csárdás, will lift the roof off. The csárdás consists of a slow introduction — the lassu, and a wild dance — the friss. Those familiar with Brahms’ Hungarian Dances will recognize this form. Performed by Varty Manouelian and Yuri Funahashi, it is guaranteed to make you want to dance. Last on the program and a fitting climax, is Johannes Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. I in G Minor. While Brahms was not Hungarian, he had a great affection for “Hungarian” music. In the last movement of this work — the “Gypsy Rondo” — he really lets loose. This work is exciting and justly popular among chamber music audiences. Featured pianist, Yuri Funahashi, has performed in Europe, Japan, Australia, Canada, and is a performing member of the Festival Chamber Music Society in NYC. A Maine resident, she is co-director of Maine Mountain Chamber Music and on the faculty at Colby College. So there it is — a wonderful concert with everything from lyricism to pyrotechnics. If you enjoy folk tunes, passion, the flash and fire of gypsy violins, this concert is for you. Don’t miss it! For more information about the 2011 season, as well as program notes by Will Hertz, visit the Festival website: Tickets are $20 for individual series concerts, or $85 for the series of five Tuesday concerts.

LOVELL —The Greater Lovell Land Trust (GLLT) will kick off its summer education programs this week with two guided walks and the first of the evening Natural History Presentation Series at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. The docent-led walks will take place on Wednesday, July 13 at 10 a.m. at the Kezar River Reserve and Thursday, July 14 at 9 a.m. at the Heald-Bradley Ponds Reserve. The evening presentation on Wednesday, July 13 will feature “The Wildlife of the Brownfield Bog” with David Brown at 7:30 p.m. The Kezar River Reserve walk will meet at the parking area across from the Wicked Good Store in downtown Lovell (and if you need another reason to come into town, you can double up with a trip to the Farmers’ Market!) This walk will cover moderate terrain and last approximately two hours. The Reserve is home to river otters, whose easily accessible bank-side haul-out offers a unique view of the habits and habitat of this playful mammal. The Heald-Bradley Ponds Reserve walk will meet at the Flat Hill Parking area off Heald Pond Road. This gentle walk will last approximately two hours and docents will focus on reading the forest for foundations with an added emphasis on flowering plants and seeds. For both walks, participants should wear/bring comfortable

walking shoes, water, a hat, and bug repellent. Due to the increased prevalence of deer ticks in the region, lightweight long pants are also recommended. The first of the weekly Natural History Series will take place on Wednesday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m. with a presentation on “The Wildlife of Brownfield Bog” at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. Renowned animal tracker and naturalist David Brown returns with a slide/video program on the amazing diversity of wildlife to be found in this nearby area. Wild mammals like bobcats, coyotes and foxes reveal their hidden presence through the tracks they leave behind on Bog Road. The Bog is also justly famous for the variety of birdlife it harbors, some of which will be shown in colorful videotape recorded during many visits over the years. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for upcoming programs throughout the summer. The weekly Natural History Presentation Series take place every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. The land trust also offers guided walks every Thursday and occasionally on Wednesdays.

HARRISON — The Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival will return to historic Deertrees Theatre in Harrison for its 39th season of presenting outstanding Chamber music on Tuesday, July 12 at 7:30 p.m. The opening concert “Hungarian Connection,” features works by Hungarian composers Kodály, Bartók, and Liszt, and Hungarianinspired music of Brahms. Zoltán Kodály’s work, which is frequently based on Hungarian folk tunes, has been said to embody the spirit of Hungary. His Intermezzo for String Trio has been likened to a relaxed serenade. Here, the audience will be wooed by violinist Varty Manouelian, international competition winner, and current member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic; violist Laurie Kennedy, principal chair of the Portland Symphony Orchestra, and Festival music director; and, making his Festival debut, cellist Joel Noyes, a Portland native, who is a member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and has performed at acclaimed festivals such as Marlboro, La Jolla and Taos. Next on the program is a set of 10 duos for two violins by Béla Bartók. They are from Bartók’s 1931 collection of 44 duos, based on his field recordings of folk musicians. Composed for a violin teacher to use with his students, they express, in increasing technical difficulty, a broad spectrum of everyday life in the small villages of Eastern Europe. They will be brought to life by the virtuoso team of Varty Manouelian and Movses Pogossian. Movses is a Grammy-winning artist who currently teaches at UCLA and was the youngest ever to win the First Prize in the USSR National Violin Competition. Together, these musicians will prove that these duets are not mere child’s play. In celebration of Franz Liszt’s 200th birthday, Laurie Kennedy and Yuri Funahashi will perform his Forgotten Romance for viola and piano, a lovely short vignette that quietly demonstrates the viola’s depth and emotional range.

For online registration and workshop schedule updates, visit The primary goal of the Introductory Invasive Plant Patrol Workshop is to provide those who wish to join Maine’s “early detection” effort with information and guidance needed to get started. The workshop will include an overview of invasive species issues in Maine and beyond, plant identification fundamentals and plant identification hands-on exercises with live plants. All workshop participants receive an Invasive Plant Patroller’s Handbook, and the Maine Field Guide to Invasive Aquatic Plants. The Invasive Plant Patrol Field Methods Workshop provides on-lake instruction and practice conducting invasive aquatic plant screening surveys. The course was designed as advanced training for those who have already attended the introductory IPP workshop, but pre-

vious workshop experience is not a prerequisite. Participants must bring their own shallow draft boats (e.g. canoes, kayaks, inflatables). Loaner boats may be available upon request. Invasive Plant Patrol workshops are provided, free of charge to participants, by the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program Center for Invasive Aquatic Plants. IPP workshops are funded in large part by a grant from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, with funds generated by Maine Lake and River Protection Sticker Program. Additional support for the workshops comes from foundation grants, private donations, and the generosity of local sponsors.  Anyone interested in learning about aquatic invaders is welcome to participate in the workshops. Those who wish to become active members of Maine’s early detection team and to make a formal commitment to the statewide endeavor, are encouraged to become Certified IPP Volunteers. The Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP) is the oldest, and one of the largest, citizen-based lake monitoring programs in the nation. Through its nationally recognized Invasive Plant Patrol program, the VLMP Center for Invasive Aquatic Plants has now trained nearly 2,500 plant patrollers across the state of Maine.   For more information regarding Invasive Plant Patrol Workshops, the threat of aquatic invaders in Maine, or the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program, contact Roberta Hill at 783-7733 or e-mail mciap@ The website is www.MaineVolunteerLakeMon

Garden Sculptures at DeerWood Farm & Gardens

WATERFORD — There is more to see at DeerWood Farm & Gardens in Waterford than just plant life. Brian and Beverly Hendricks have owned and operated DeerWood Farm & Gardens, an organic daylily and veggie farm in Waterford, for eight years. Brian also creates garden sculptures from cement. He learned to work with cement at a young age from his father who was a ceramic tile installer. Brian

started experimenting with cement as a sculpture material. The internal structure of each creation is made from blocks of Styrofoam and wire, which makes the piece lightweight. He then sculpts a layer of cement between a half and two inches thick. One of his first pieces, an abstract subject in a yoga tree pose, was shipped to Mississippi. The larger sculptures weigh between 60 and 75 pounds. He also

makes smaller “garden girls.” The larger works usually have a serious demeanor, while the smaller ones project a happier fun mood. Pieces range from $50 to $750 in price. Brian plans to show them off for the first time in art shows this summer, including Bridgton’s Art in the Park. For more on DeerWood and other creations by Brian, go to

THE CHICKADEE QUILTERS will be holding their 32nd annual Chickadee Quilt Show at Stevens Brook Elementary School this weekend. In addition to viewing all the unique quilts, you can stop in the café and take part in the raffle.

head. You can sit and relax at a pretty little table covered with a “cutter” quilt. You will be able to get a cool beverage and goodie before you go back to take another look at everything. Don’t miss an opportunity to see the 2012 raffle. Instead of one big quilt, there are at least 25 mini-quilts, depicting the four seasons. Yes, that means that there will be as many winners as there are little quilts. Before you leave the show, be sure to vote for your favorite quilt in each category — large, medium, small, hand-quilted, and “other.” Ribbons are awarded based on the votes.


bard Tom Foley (1927-2011). Several of the poets will read poems in honor of Tom, both his originals and favorites by others. Audiences will be treated to rich and diverse poetry of very high caliber. Many of the local poets gather as the Mountain Poets Society. The group meets regularly (the second Sunday of each month at 4 p.m. at the Fare Share Commons on Main Street in Norway) and welcomes newcomers and listeners. POP IX will appeal to all ages and tastes. It’s free and open to all. “Although this is our ninth time around, we’re really just getting started,” Moore said. “Nine years is very brief in poetry-time.” The Norway Arts Festival, co-sponsored by the Western Maine Art Group and Norway Downtown will be held from July 7-9.

Come dance at the Norway Arts Festival

NORWAY — Bring your dancing shoes and an empty belly to the Norway Arts Festival Street Dance this Friday, July 8, from 7 to 10 p.m. behind Fare Share Co-Op. Rain location will be at the Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School Forum. The Norway Arts Festival is celebrating the life and work of Tony Montanaro, an internationally acclaimed mime artist and teacher, and founder of the Celebration Barn Theater. The Norway Arts Festival also features the 44th annual Sidewalk Art Show on Saturday, July 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with over a hundred artists lining historical Main Street. A public safety initiative has allowed for Main Street to be closed on Saturday, July 9 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Come ready to eat and dance. Caribbean Cuisine will be there with his traditional island fare for your dining pleasure. The street dance begins with local favorites “Dawson Hill and Friends,” who opened for last year’s street dance and are back by popular demand. Dawson Hill and Friends bring a jazz funk blend and the kind of performance that will get you out of your seat and ready to dance. This year’s headline band, “Criss Cross Orchestra,” guar-

antees a show to remember. Combined with visual streaming of Tony Montanaro by visual jockey, VJ Foo, the Norway Arts Festival is bringing the best of local artists and those from afar. “Criss Cross Orchestra” is an 11-member group directed by Obuamah Laud Addy, an award-winning West African Ghanaian musician and composer who performed with Wynton Marsalis of Congo Square among others. Obuamah has performed for the President Clinton inaugural festivities and was the lead singer for a performance in Washington, D.C., for the pre-inaugural celebrations of the first African-American president of the United States, Barack Obama. He is joined by many of the finest diaspora and New England musicians and ensemble performers. Criss Cross music is currently performing in Europe and Africa; it is defined as a crossing or combination of powerful traditional African, American, Caribbean, Cuban, Latin American and European musical styles. Featuring all original compositions, the orchestra brings together polyrhythmic beats from African roots music with the melodic qualities found on the steel pans (band member Jason Roseman is from Trinidad) and the Irish

penny whistle, along with the trumpet, saxophone, bass, guitar, percussion, and vocals. The orchestra is a dance band, with a variety of global sounds and a contagious energy! “This year really provides an opportunity to bring the Norway Arts Festival to a whole new level of entertainment by celebrating a man who was as diverse and talented as the students he brought to the area,” said Performance Director Rijah Newell. Feeling like you can’t dance? Bonny Branch will lead a mini salsa dance class at intermission. She currently teaches a class at Katey Branch’s studio at Halls Pond on Wednesday nights, check it out! The Norway Arts Festival is a collaboration of two local nonprofits, Norway Downtown and The Western Maine Art Group. All events are free to the public and are made possible by local sponsors: the Street Dance is sponsored by Bruce and Ann Cook, Acme Lamprey, Café Nomad, Willie’s Repair, The Oxford County Democrats, and Bearfoot Realty. The festival is still in need CAMILLA FECTEAU, a Saint Joseph’s College biology instructor, will present a free talk on of sponsors; if you would like loons tonight, Thursday, July 7 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to help please contact Rijah Newell at 890-0545.

All presentations at the church will begin at 7:30 p.m. • On Saturday, July 9, the Kezar Lake Watershed Association will hold their membership meeting at the VFW Hall starting at 8:30 p.m. Also that day, at 2 p.m., there will be an “Eyes on the Water” Outing starting 2 p.m. Those wanting to take part in the outing can meet at Kezar’s North End boat ramp. The purpose of this event is to have those attending join in looking for invasive aquatic plants that can endanger our lake. Bring your camera and sharp eyes so that we can keep our lake pure. • The first July Greater Lovell Land Trust walk will take place on July 13 at the Kezar Lake Reserve at 10 a.m. The folks attending will be searching for any animal signs. This area is popular with the wild animals because of the forest plus the riverside. This is a moderate two-hour walk, so yes, bring your water and bug spray and enjoy. • Also on July 13, the trust will hold a talk at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library, when David Brown will speak about the wildlife in the Brownfield Bog. Animals are plentiful in this area, proven by the many tracks left by bobcats, coyotes and foxes. The bog is also famous for the many varieties of birds seen in the area. The program starts at 7:30 p.m., and members of the area communities are invited to attend. Looking ahead On Friday, July 15, the Old

Home Days Weekend starts out when all the 5K racers who have preregistered and those who need to register can pick up their racing packet at the athletic field at 4:30 p.m. Paul Armington has been seen warming up for the big push for the race. At 5:30 p.m., the Kezar Trailbreakers will hold their Pork/Chicken Roast, also at the athletic field. This is one of the group’s big fundraisers to help pay for the grooming of trails during the winter season. This event is also the group’s way for thanking all the property owners for allowing the riders to use their land for trails. It’s also a great meal and a chance to see all the folks returning for the summer. Old Home Days starts with those taking part in the parade gathering at the Wicked Good Store at 9 a.m., so they can find their place in line. Participants in the 5K race needing transportation should meet at the athletic field, as the last bus leaves at 9:15 a.m. At 9:45 a.m., the 5K race begins at Route 5 and 5A near the Historical Society’s Kimball-Stanford House. The Old Home Days Parade begins promptly at 10 a.m., proceeding from the Wicked Good Store to the athletic field. This year’s parade grand marshall is our own Ron McAllister. Activities at the field will be enough to keep everyone busy. The Swift River Jazz Band will be providing music, not only in the parade but at the field later. There will be free IRIS scans, and a first this year is a Meet Your Lovell Fire Department Open House. For the children or adult children there will be a Rock Climbing Wall, a Dunk Tank, a Jell-O Eating Contest, Mini Golf, a Lollipop Youth Race and Games. At 1:15 p.m., there will be a family-style softball game, and everyone is urged to take part or just stand and cheer the players on. The committee is raffling off three items, one Xbox Kinect, one cord of wood and a $75 Sherman Farm Gift Certificate.



The winners will be drawn at 1:30 p.m. If you’re hungry, have no fear, there is food food food. Booths of hamburgers, hotdogs, popcorn, sno cones, fried dough, strawberry and peach shortcakes and more. Wondering what the cows are doing in the field? They’re waiting to perform, hopefully so the winner of the Cow Chip Bingo can be announced without delay. To defray some of the cost of the event, the committee is selling Lovell hats for $15 and they can be bought at Rosie’s, the Wicked Good Store and from Stan at Kezar Reality. While enjoying the day, you might like to give the committee a handshake or pat on the back for all their hard work. On Sunday, July 17, the Lovell Historical Society will hold an Antique Show and Live Auction at the KimballStanford House on Route 5 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., please note the time. This is one of the most popular events during the summer and a great fundraiser for the Society.

Vacation Bible Camp ends on a high note

The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ of Bridgton, ended its weeklong Vacation Bible Camp for kids on July 1 with a grand finale that included singing, dancing and a giant black whale. The theme this year was “Pandamania — Where God is Wild About You,” and the entire church was decorated in vivid jungle colors to welcome campers. Forty-three campers ranging from babies to middleschoolers attended. Twenty teen counselors, 12 adult volunteers and two staff members planned and coordinated activities like arts and crafts, storytelling, outdoor sports, and music. “Music was my favorite thing

At the finale, each group shared with parents and visitors songs they’d learned throughout the week. One of the groups, the “Kung Fu Pandas,” even added a little dancing to their program. Campers said they enjoyed playing outdoor games and making their own drums (which they used to accompany one of the songs they

wind down a busy week. Come on over with a picnic supper, bring the kids or grandkids, the company, bring some chairs or blanket and relax. Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July weekend. There were lots of people for the parade, and I didn’t see anyone running for cover when the thundershower came in the middle of it. Just put up your umbrella and wait. The participants got wet and most had a blast. They did bus up the Camp Takajo kids so none of them got hit by lightening. Now the fireworks were beautiful. They had quite a few new kinds to see, and they lasted about 25 or so minutes. It was wall-to-wall cars — some were parked as far back as the doctor’s offices. Red Hat Ladies of the Lake July birthdays are: Mildred Davis, Rita Harding, Cheryl Harmon, Alice Leavitt, Barbara Sparrow and Phyllis Stanton. Hope you have a wonderful day and many more.

An 1897 resort hotel, an 1855 gothic revival home and an 1892 Queen Anne house are among homes available for viewing in a fascinating tour of 10 sites in and around Bridgton on Saturday, July 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The tour, sponsored by the Rufus Porter Museum, will also offer viewing of an 1830 farmhouse, an 1870 Greek Revival Four Square home and a 1902 late Victorian home, led by knowledgeable docents of Bridgton’s architectural styles. The tour is a fundraiser to support the museum’s plans to renovate the Webb-Gallinari house in downtown Bridgton that they purchased last fall. They want to build a barn on the property to house the complete collection of murals done by Rufus Porter and his nephew, Jonathan D. Poor. They also plan to convert the house into docent living quarters, classrooms and more museum space. Board member Beth Cossey said the main homes on the tour are not usually open for viewing, so this will be a rare treat for people interested in old homes and architecture. The location of the homes will be given once people sign up for the tour, by calling 647-2828 or visiting Cost for a single ticket is $25, or $45 for a pair. Other properties that are part of the tour are an 1868 coffin factory, an 1882 Italianate, a 1798 simplified Georgian and a 1789 Cape Cod. For more information call Cossey at 647-3724.

DESIGNING A STREETSCAPE — Resident Ken Murphy listens as a seasonal resident comments on development standards for the Portland Road corridor at the June 25 planning charette by the Bridgton Comprehensive Planning Committee.

Form-based codes get test run at charette

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer The Comprehensive Planning Committee has embraced formbased codes, and now, it appears, so have Bridgton’s residents. At least that was the general consensus at the town’s first public planning session on the future of the Portland Road, held June 25. It was the first real test of the merits of form-based codes, the concept of which received a favorable response by the 35 or so who attended the planning charette, said Alan Manoian, Bridgton’s director of Economic and Community Development. The 11-member committee will continue its work when it meets this Thursday, July 7, at 6:30 p.m. in the Bridgton Municipal Complex. It will do so without Scott Finlayson, one of its former co-chairs. Finlayson, who led a successful petition drive for a citizen referendum to limit growth on Portland Road, has an ill family member and had to resign for personal reasons. Committee member Bob Wiser was voted in as the new co-chair, working with co-chair Ray Turner. Since they now have an empty

slot, the committee favors the idea of having Peter Morrison, who has been attending meetings regularly, to be appointed as a member. Selectmen, who will have final say on the matter, also have discussed the possibility of appointing Thomas Nolan to fill the empty slot, or expand the committee to 12 persons and have both Nolan and Morrison serve. Manoian found it gratifying that around a dozen of the people attending the charette were seasonal residents, who didn’t have a chance to vote March 1 on the referendum to ban big box stores and fast food restaurants. The referendum was soundly defeated, but town leaders realized through the controversy that residents strongly support creation of new development standards along the Portland Road corridor. “It was one of the most unified charettes I’ve ever participated in,” he said Tuesday. “They absolutely embraced the concept” of a form-based code system to be written into the town’s site plan review process. Plans are to have a public vote on the new standards this November.

However, the committee voted at an earlier meeting to consider asking selectmen to have that timetable extended to next July, if they find they cannot complete their work and provide sufficient public education by November. Members of the Comprehensive Planning Committee, who have created their own Facebook page to educate the public about formbased codes had, at an earlier meeting, voted to go forward with form-based code “as an operating planning and development principle” as they study new development standards for the town’s major gateways on Route 302 and 117. The committee led participants in the roll-up-the-sleeves planning charette June 25 that followed the walking tour from Pondicherry Park to Smith Street. Working in small groups, the members went over proposed development standards for the stretch of Portland Road from the Square to Mt. Henry Road. Later charettes will deal with sections of the highway, or

“transects,” further south to the Naples town line. Plans in rough draft form would reintroduce on-street parking from the Square to Maple Street, and limit parking on the property to the side or the back of the buildings. The new standards would also require all new development to be built to the sidewalk line. The section closest to Pondicherry Square would become a “Traditional Center” transect under the proposed new code, while the section further south to Hannaford Supermarket would become a “Traditional Flex” zone. “People were quite excited about it, especially if they did the walk,” Manoian said. “They were able to take it out of the abstract,” and visualize what development in the future could look like with on-street parking and parking lots in the rear, similar to that existing at the Black Horse Tavern & Pub. The first transect, where a two-story building minimum would be the rule — and three stories maximum — would extend from the square to Smith Avenue, and the second transect would extend to Willett Drive. In the interests of educating the public about form-based codes, committe member Greg Watkins has created a draft trifold brochure that should be available soon at the municipal center. Entitled “Designing A Better Bridgton,” the brochure explains that form-based codes are different than traditional zoning in that traditional zoning, or “use-based” codes divide the town into residential and commercial zones, and consider a building’s use or purpose, above the form or design of a building. Form-based codes, on the other hand, are designed to reduce sprawl by encouraging interconnected neighborhoods, encouraging walkability and green space and multiple uses within two- or three-story buildings. They also set buildings close to the road, with parking lots behind buildings. “Use is a consideration but it is not the overriding regulatory element,” the brochure states. Form-based codes “define how buildings will relate to each other and to the public space around them,” thereby enabling “Bridgton’s new development to have the character and feel of our existing structures,” the brochure states.

Naples board will tend to beer gardens By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES – When the warmth of summer arrives, many local eating establishments offer customers al fresco venues — outdoor settings where customers are allowed to eat, or smoke a cigarette while sipping an alcoholic beverage. But, with summertime’s increased use of beer gardens, sometimes noise complaints crop up, too. On Monday, the Naples Board of Selectmen will hold public hearings for all restaurants and taverns that have beer gardens. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Naples Town Office. According to Town Manager Derik Goodine, the public hearing is not required by the Maine State Liquor Board. However, elected town officials have expressed a desire to hear from the public about any noise complaints. Also, business owners may want to explain how they alleviate noise levels or other issues stemming from beer gardens. While the Town of Naples does not have a noise ordinance, a few years ago it prohibited outdoor bands from performing after 9 p.m. — except when such entertainment is okayed through a Special Amusement Permit. According to Goodine, he and selectmen have received a few noise complaints about the American Legion, the Black Bear Café, the Galley, and the

Redneck Lounge — all located on or near Route 11 as opposed to along the Causeway. “I think there should be a public hearing,” Selectman Rick Paraschak said recently, “especially for those (businesses) that are in residential areas. The Redneck is next to a mobile home park.” “When people are having fun, they get loud outside,” he said. Selectman Tom Mayberry stressed that he did not have anything against the beer gardens – as long as people drinking outside can keep the noise down. In addition to multiple conversations happening outdoors, noise levels can rise when the door leading to the beer garden is left open while music is playing. That happens when a group of people heads to the beer garden, and someone holds the door open until everyone passes through the doorway. Other times, a door might be propped open for its cooling effect. Chairman Christine Powers said the board is trying to strike a balance between these businesses and the people living in homes near commercial zones. Noise complaints will not be the root for the closure of local beer gardens. But, the upcoming public hearing could clear a path for mitigating noise levels at establishments sharing common ground with residentially-zoned areas.

Wilson lands good ‘workout’ on Fourth Jesseman defends women’s race title

By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer Jonny Wilson was looking for a good “workout” as he prepares to run the Beach to Beacon 10K race in a few weeks. Bridgton proved to be a great test.

JONNY WILSON, 23, of Falmouth won this year’s Bridgton race in 20:19.

ERICA JESSEMAN, 22, of Scarborough repeated as women’s champ in 22:11.

Battling humidity and a tough climb on Mile 2, the 23year-old from Falmouth won the 35th annual Bridgton 4 on the Fourth in 20:19. “My goal was to come out here and give it a good effort,” said Wilson, who recently graduated from the University of Richmond. “Right now, I’ve been doing some heavy training. I used this as kind of a workout because my main goal is to train for the Beach to Beacon.” Wilson was pushed by multiCasco Days winner Richard Klauber, 21, of Thomaston, Conn., who placed second in 20:36. Christopher Harmon, 23, of Scarborough was third in 20:56. Defending women’s champion Erica Jesseman eyed to set a new course record, but weather conditions put the brakes on the 22-year-olds’ hope. “It’s a hard course,” she said. “You don’t realize that after the first mile, the rest is uphill. Halfway through it, I realized it was really hot and really muggy. It was not perfect conditions, but I felt pretty (poorly) in it too. My mind was telling me I can’t do this, but I was able to finish.” Jesseman, a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, fell short of the mark of 21:56 set by Michele Hallet in 1987. The Scarborough runner finished in 22:11, which was better than her winning time of a year ago at 23:06. Fellow Scarborough resident Kristin Barry, a former Bridgton race champ, was second in 22:42 while Sarah Rebick, 36, of Denmark was third in 24:16. For complete race results, check The News’ website ( or the race’s website ( This Fourth marked the highest turnout in the race’s history as entries neared the 2,000 cap number. In all, 1,910 runners registered, while 1,850 finished on Depot Street. Race Director Jim Cossey noted that RECORD, Page C

Record stands the test of time (Continued from Page C) there were some no-shows. 2011 was packed with some interesting side stories including: Another man’s run. Tom McNulty, 54, of Raymond was unable to run the local race, so he decided to run a four-miler thousands of miles away from home. McNulty is on active duty with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. The chief warrant officer mapped out a four mile “out and back” course, which he ran with some fellow servicemen. To add the local flavor, Cossey sent a 2011 4 on the Fourth race t-shirt to McNulty back on June 20. McNulty ran his race on July 2 because of assigned duties on the Fourth. “I ran the race this morning at 0445 with some members of my unit. I ran the four miles in

RECORD HOLDER GETS THE FIELD STARTED — Colin Peddie, a Farmingdale native who now operates six Marathon Sports stores in Massachusetts, returned to Bridgton Monday as the race’s honorary starter. Peddie set the course record in 1987 at 18:46. 35:30, unofficially of course,” McNulty said in an e-mail to Cossey. “It was 80 degrees with a headwind of about 15 knots, not too bad since it was 100 degrees with sustained winds of 35 knots four hours later. Oh, what fun.” Special guests. Five mem-

bers of a Coast Guard cutter, based in Norfolk, Va., took part in the race, after arriving in Portland the day before. Online, way to register. 1,847 runners had registered when the pre-registration race database closed out at noon on July 3.

Page C, The Bridgton News, July 7, 2011

Record (Continued from Page C) utes, 46 seconds. Although several elite runners have made strong bids to rewrite the race’s record book, Peddie’s name still holds the top spot. Peddie, who still competitively runs, was the honorary starter for the 2011 Bridgton four miler. The University of Virginia grad now lives in Weston, Mass. and owns/ operates six Marathon Sports stores. “I really love what I do,” Peddie said as he walked from the starting line onto Main Street toward the finish line.

According to his company’s website, “Marathon Sports is a collection of individuals bound by a common thread: the love for all things that promote a positive, healthy lifestyle. We stand by the motto ‘keeping your life in motion.’ We believe that the act of movement — walking, jogging, running; any activity in which the human body is the vehicle — is a fundamental element of personal well-being. And we believe you should be able to do these things in comfort. This is why, for over three decades, we have been committed to making sure the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other is as easy as it sounds.” Marathon Sports was founded in 1975, and went under the

Regional sports sole ownership of Colin Peddie since 1992. Today, the company employs 75. Peddie looked forward to making his return to Bridgton, and he remains a little surprise that his record has stood the test of time, at least for now. Peddie nearly missed the race back in 1987. Coming up from Boston, he thought the race was at 8:30 a.m. “I came up and saw the line, and said, ‘Oh my gosh, what is going on here?’ I remember throwing my wallet to someone and they threw me a number. I got to the front of the line where I met Andy Palmer and Gerry Clapper — the creme of the crop was there. I didn’t warm up at all. I usually have an hour

long routine of stretching and running. They (other runners) knew it and took it out hard,” Peddie said. “I had so much built up anxiety in my body that I said, ‘the heck with it,’ and I just went for it. I had a pretty good day, I guess.” It was the first time Peddie had seen the course, and he still remembers feeling pretty good after the first mile, and then Peddie made a big push during the Mile 2 hill. “I was one of those guys who embraced hills, growing up in Hallowell. It was my forte,” he said. “I had a fairly decent time up that stretch. I took a quick glimpse behind me and saw that I had a good gap. I cruised the next mile, and then

hammered the last one.” Peddie remains surprised that the record still stands. It was challenged last year by outstanding Maine runner Ben True. “It was a decent time. If I had been ready, I might have run it faster. I did some 10Ks that my times were much faster,” he said. “It was about the moment; I was happy with it. It’s pretty exciting that I still hold the record.” Peddie’s sister lives just a mile from the starting line, and the Fourth race has been a family affair. “The more you remove yourself from it, you realize the memories you have,” he said. “It’s hard to believe it’s been

24 years. It felt nice to be here today.” Other race notes. All available current year t-shirts were sold, and all but 14 of past-year t-shirts were sold. The only ‘in-stock’ t-shirts left are 11 2009 cotton t-shirts of which 10 are youth medium and one is small, and three medium shirts from 2007.  The market in several dozen spare vintage t-shirts from as far back as the 1980s was brisk. Opening with a different beat. During the pre-start ceremonies, a trio of local singers — Anne Polak and her daughters, Julie and Sarah Handspicker –– sang the seldom-heard fourth verse of the “National Anthem.”

On the race calendar

BASEBALL’S BEST — Members of the Sebago champion Sebago-Long lake major league baseball team include: (front, left to right) Molly Christensen and Brooke Harriman; (middle row) Raymond Maher, Kameron Willey, Gunnar

Harriman, Alex Langadas, Luke Porter, Ayden Grass, Noah Turgeon and Matt Stenger; (back row) Coaches Linda Christensen, Ron Willey, Kurt Christensen, Chris Harriman and Moe Harriman.

Championship that almost wasn’t

SEBAGO — The Sebago Slammers won the SebagoLong Lake Cal Ripken major league championship — not bad for a team that almost wasn’t! In April, Coach Ron Willey didn’t have enough players to field a team so he asked Brooke Harriman, a 9-year-old softball player, to play for him.

Fortunately, she agreed and along with Molly Christensen, the girls helped the boys win the championship. Sebago compiled a regular season record of 11-3-1. Entering the post season as the second seed, they went on to win four games in the playoffs, outscoring the opponents 36-5, to take home the trophy.

Gunnar Harriman, the league Sportsmanship Award winner, led the team both offensively and defensively. Alex Langadas and Luke Porter were good leaders and provided plenty of power at the plate. Matt “the Hammer” Stenger was a brick wall at first base. Younger players, Kameron Willey, Noah

Turgeon, Raymond Maher and Ayden Grass all contributed to make this a championship team. Rounding out the team were Molly the “RBI” queen and Brooke, who held her own playing with older kids. “To all the players, especially those moving up to other teams, remember never quit and never be influenced to quit,” coaches said. Congratulations to Coach Ron Willey, a terrific coach and motivator, and to a very dedicated assistant coach, Chris Harriman. Also a big “thank you” to the parents and friends who supported the team.

Supporting local foods in Farm Bill

By Chellie Pingree United States Congresswoman When I moved to Maine as a teenager in 1971, big business — and big subsidies — was just beginning to define American agriculture. Instead of small, diverse farms that fed our communities for generations, our food system shifted to mass production, chemical engineering, huge companies, and empty calories. Where has it gotten us 40 years later? Obesity and health problems plague our children. Bacterial outbreaks in massproduced food have created national scares. More and more foreign oil is used to produce and transport our food. And the family farms that formed the backbone of our communities are becoming few and far between. In Maine, though, there are some very encouraging signs of positive change. Knowing where your food comes from has become the subject of conversations across the state. Families are deciding they’d rather get food from a local farm, because it’s healthier, better tasting, a good value, and comes from someone they know and trust. And, in some ways, Maine is quite different than the rest of the country when it comes to agriculture — our farmers are

getting younger, the number of farms is growing, and most families buy at least some of their foods directly from growers. New farmers’ markets and community gardens are springing up across Southern Maine. When I moved to Maine to run an organic farm on North Haven in the 1970s, organic and sustainable farming was anything but mainstream. No more. It’s time for our food policy to catch up with these trends and do whatever possible to encourage local and regional food systems that will be better for our children, environment, and communities. Congress will reauthorize the Farm Bill in the next two years, and I believe it’s time to start reforming that policy to reflect the importance of local, sustainable agriculture. Over the last few decades, the Farm Bill has mostly been written to benefit agri-businesses and giant production farms. But a “local foods” title would create a section of the legislation to establish programs and increase support for local and regional food systems. It would put consumers and small local farmers first. A local foods title would make it easier for farmers to get their food to consumers. There is a lot that a local foods title could do to break down the FOOD, Page D

CRYSTAL LAKE SUNRISE — It truly can be worth it to wake up early and witness a spectacular sunrise at about 5 a.m. looking out over Crystal Lake in Harrison. Carol Phaneuf captured this incredible view.

Never too late for a first date

The man hadn’t had a date since 1979. Actually, he’d never had a date. As a gangly, height-challenged, pimple-ridden, poorly dressed teenager with goofy hair and bad teeth, he’d rarely even talked to an actual girl. Never called one

drape his skinny arm over a brunette-splashed shoulder. Even back in ’79, when he’d met his first wife at college, they’d just fallen into it — and she’d done all the work (the asking), and all he had to do was mumble, “Gosh, okay.” He was, in the lingo of the day, a total dweeb. So, 32 years later, when the combination of a girl and the girl’s favorite folk singer playing at the local playhouse occurred simultaneously, the man was impressed that he had the courage to ask, and a little surprised that the girl said, “Yes!” He’d known her for many years, since she was just a little girl, in fact. And she was still just a girl, at least compared to him — so many years younger that he’d have some explaining to do if cornered. He was still gangly and not very tall, but at least the pimples were gone, the teeth had been fixed, and the goofy hair was just a memory (actually, hair of any sort was a fading concept). Alas, he could still barely dress himself. Once a

dweeb, always a dweeb. Despite his shortcomings, the man prepared diligently for the big night. He showered and shaved, put on a pair of clean pants that actually fit, found a nice shirt that wasn’t too wrinkled, and wrapped his best Winnie-the-Pooh tie around his neck. Deodorant and a pair of flip-flops completed the ensemble. He even flossed. Decked out thusly, the man commenced pacing back and forth in his kitchen until the appointed hour. And then there she was, walking right in the door: tall, beautiful, brunette, confident, smiling, a college student just finished with her shift at the local ice cream shop, dressed to the nines and ready to go. Well, the date was wonderful. A swell time. Guy and gal hitting it off perfectly. He held doors open for her and she walked right through. She laughed at his jokes and he actually listened to her when she talked. They ran into a few people that the man knew, but he was prepared, and it seemed effortless the way he introduced his very young companion. His friends smiled and said nice things and whispered, “What an adorable couple” DATE, Page D

To The Editor: I am glad our politicians and bureaucrats in Augusta have such an insightful grasp of the state’s economy. They have obviously ensured that all the state’s maintained roads will be brought up to perfect condition by the end of the construction season. That must be why they have allocated many thousands of dollars to build a bike and walking trail, wide enough for automobiles, from the Visitor’s Information Center on Route 302 in Fryeburg near the state line along the railroad tracks. I don’t know how far it will go. To spend money on something like this when our roads are in such a sad state of deterioration and continue to get worse on a yearly basis is beyond my comprehension. Do the elevators go to the top floor in

First date

(Continued from Page D) under their breath. The man and his date had good seats in the balcony but he didn’t do the arm-stretch-shoulder-drape trick because it just seemed wrong. But that was fine; just sitting next to such a winsome thing for two hours was a real treat. He felt like he’d known her all her life. When the folk singer (who was great, by the way) had strummed through his encore and the applause had died away, the man and the girl walked out into the fragrant spring night and he drove her straight home. It was 11:30 when they got there and the house was dark (her mom hadn’t even waited up for them). Totally ready for that awkward firstdate moment on the front step, the man thanked the girl for a lovely evening, kissed her on the cheek, and told her she was a blessing from God and that he loved her so much he could hardly stand it — it seemed the most natural thing in the world. The girl hugged the man, said she loved him too, and then went inside and up to her room to go to bed. The man quietly followed his date up the stairs, then slipped into her mother’s bedroom, put on his pajamas, and slid carefully between the covers. As he lay smiling, staring toward the dark ceiling and replaying each moment of the night, the girl’s mother roused briefly, turned toward him, and planted a big kiss right on his lips. “I hope you had a wonderful date with your daughter,” she whispered. Then his first wife put her head on his shoulder and fell peacefully back to sleep.

FIREWORKS PHOTOGRAPHY TIP — Brad Bradstreet of Bridgton captured this fireworks display Saturday evening on Long Lake. “They are multiple bursts of fireworks exposed as one image — by putting a baseball cap over the lens in between the bursts.” Here’s a fireworks photography tip: Set the camera on Manual — time goes to the “Bulb” setting — use a remote cable release with the camera on a tripod. When a burst is about to go off, press the shutter release to hold the shutter open. After a second or two place a baseball cap over the lens to prevent light from entering the lens. When you hear the next burst about to go, remove the cap and let the camera take another two seconds of photo and then release the shutter. This can be done to combine 2, 3 or 4 fireworks images into one photo.

Session highlights

Well, the First Session of the 125th Maine Legislature is finally over. While there were some glitches and some heated moments, I would say that overall things worked fairly well. There were even some major successes, including a budget that went on to be overwhelmingly approved by the entire legislature that moderated the cuts initially proposed by the governor. Over the next few weeks, I’ll tell you about some of the highlights of the session in different areas, but this week I’d like to talk about some of the bills this session that meant a lot to me

personally. Driving on the River Road in Windham is unpleasant at best, and it is in need of a major upgrade. The local legislative delegation (Representatives Mark Bryant and Gary Plummer and myself) have long been dedicated to getting Maine Department of Transportation (DOT) to make this project a priority, and we were finally able to do that this year. I am pleased to say that a temporary repair is underway right now, and major reconstruction of this important road will begin next year. Public safety has always

Streamlining to reduce waste

If you were spending beyond your means and piling up ruinous debt, you would be forced to take a hard look at your expenses and eliminate all those things you really don’t need, want or use. The federal government is spending far beyond its means, running a $1.3-trillion deficit this year and accumulating debt exceeding $14 trillion. Yet, American tax dollars continue to pay for government agencies and programs that are redundant, overlapping, and inefficient. There has never been any

doubt that wasteful duplication of effort is a serious problem in the federal government. But it was not until a recent report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) that we had overwhelming, quantifiable evidence exposing just how serious the problem is. GAO’s conclusion that there are dozens of opportunities to eliminate duplication, reduce operational costs, or enhance revenue is an urgent call to action. At a time when every citizen’s share of the national debt tops $46,000, there simply can be no excuse STREAMLINE, Page D

been a major concern to me, and seeing all the lives lost and damaged through something like texting while driving really bothered me. Of all the bills that I sponsored, “An Act to Prohibit Texting While Driving” was probably the most important. Our existing laws weren’t targeted specifically enough on this growing problem, and I have great confidence that this new law will prevent accidents and save lives. We owe a great debt to our veterans, and we need to do all that we can to help them. Homelessness is a major problem for veterans, with between 300 and 500 homeless veterans at any given time in Maine. Often this is a result of the veteran not knowing what is available for assistance, and other times it is just a matter of coordinating the right resources for each individual. “An Act To End Homelessness for Veterans in Maine” sets up a partnership between the Bureau of Maine Veterans’ Services and a national, human services-based volunteer organization, such as the Volunteers of America, to provide that education and coordination, and prevent the problem of homelessness among veterans. It is our goal to end homelessness for veterans within 10 years. Then, there was teacher that I heard about who admitted that he visited literally hundreds of websites containing child pornography, and yet could not be convicted of any crime because Maine law only covered possession. To correct this and allow Maine law to deal with current technology, I put forth a bill, “An Act To Protect Children from Sexual HIGHLIGHTS, Page D

In the face of a threat

A teacher team meeting was just ending in my room a couple of years ago when the school secretary announced over the loudspeaker that the school was going into lockdown. We weren’t responsible for students at that time, and for the next 45 minutes, because they were in their “Unified Arts” classes, which used to be known as Gym, Shop, Home Ec, and Art. Emergency procedure dictated that I stay in my room with the door locked, the lights out, and out of sight of anyone who might look in the windows. Cowering in the face of a threat is not in my nature, however. I knew I was supposed to just sit there quietly and let the appropriate authorities deal with whatever the threat was, but I couldn’t. I looked out into the hallway to see what was going on. Policemen were searching student lockers, which were lined up on either side of the wide corridor. Later, I learned that someone had scrawled “I have a gun” on a wall in one of the girls’ bathrooms. The principal decided to take the threat seriously and called police. Hence, the lockdown. Before learning that, I ran the possibilities through my mind of what the threat might be. In declining order of likelihood, I figured it could be an irate parent who felt aggrieved by a custody decision. It could also be a deranged student or students reenacting a Columbinetype episode, or it could be a terrorist attack. Whatever it was, I knew one thing: because

of screwball Gun-Free School Zones Act enacted during the Clinton Administration, we could all be assured that the perpetrator would be the only one with a weapon and all the rest of us would be at a distinct disadvantage as his unarmed victims. Feeling the familiar frustration of the many ways federal intervention had screwed up public education during my then-35-year teaching career, I reflected on the what I’d recently taught my students about “gun-free zones” as part of a Second Amendment lesson. Fox News had put together an effective, short satire on them in the form of an infomercial. The pitchman explained the benefits of putting up “gun-free zone” signs in homes, businesses and public places. A potential robber with a gun would try to hold up a store. The owner behind the counter put his hands up and pointed to a “gun-free zone” sign, whereupon the robber put down his gun and left the

store in frustration. Then he repeated the scenario in a sidewalk mugging and in a home invasion. Students caught on immediately to the absurdity of the whole “gun-free zone” concept. When I first taught here in Maine back in 1977, I noticed students driving to school with deer rifles on racks across the rear windows of their pickup trucks. During November, they’d hunt before and after school, and so would many teachers, including this writer. Parents dropping their children off in front of the school often had rifles visible in their trucks as well. Then in the 1990s, I found myself distributing notices to parents warning them against doing that anymore after the ludicrous GunFree School Zones Act was signed into law by President Clinton. The notice students were instructed to take home and give to parents said those parents could be arrested if

A regular visit to your optometrist’s office isn’t only good for your eyes, it’s good for your whole body. A comprehensive eye exam will diagnose eye problems like astigmatism, cataracts, and farsightedness to name a few, but did you know that an eye exam can go a long way in detecting other health concerns like diabetes and high blood pressure?

Streamlining government Calendar

(Continued from Page D) for such waste. This duplication and overlap serve neither the taxpayers nor the beneficiaries well. For example, a low-income person with a disability may confront a bewildering maze of some 80 programs providing transportation assistance. The report offers many other examples. Fifteen federal agencies are involved in food safety. Three agencies run 18 food assistance programs, and seven agencies run more than 20 programs for the homeless. There are 80 economic development programs across the government. There are more than 100 programs for surface transportation, 82 for teacher quality, 44 for job training, and 17 for disaster preparedness and response. And the list goes on. Perhaps the greatest irony of all is the fact that 20 agencies, housing 56 different programs, are all redundantly trying to improve financial literacy of the American people. The American people can teach the government a thing or two about financial literacy: in difficult fiscal times, we should pay for something once, not dozens of times. There are many causes of duplication. At times, a president, seeking to put his own imprint on the budget to demonstrate his priorities, proposes a new program, despite the fact that similar ones already exist. In other cases, it is Congress that creates the silo of a new

initiative without checking to see if a similar silo already exists. Committee jurisdictions contribute to the problem as each committee carves out its own programs to respond to its constituency. There are no bad intentions at work here. Just the opposite — it is the proliferation of good intentions — the desire to solve problems that has created this problem. But, to paraphrase George Bernard Shaw, the road to fiscal ruin could be paved with good intentions. The maze of duplication can be frustrating for citizens, and it is hardly trivial in a financial sense. The multiple programs to promote ethanol production, for example, cost almost $6 billion every year. Not only is that unacceptable when we have a $14 trillion debt, but it deprives other competing priorities of scarce resources. I know the people of Maine would rather have this money used to reduce the deficit or to find the next life-saving vaccine or to support our brave and dedicated troops rather than to subsidize ethanol. Another example of duplication is the proliferation of federal data centers. In 1998, there were 432 centers. When GAO counted last summer, the number was approximately 2,100, leading to more than 24,000 government websites, and 1,000 separate human resources and financial management systems. Of course, there has been incredible digitalization of

Medicare nugget

By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor Bone mass measurements can help determine if you need medical treatment for osteoporosis. Starting this year, if you are in original Medicare and meet certain criteria that put you at risk for osteoporosis, a bone mass measurement is covered as a preventive service. This means you will have no coinsurance or deductible for bone mass measurement if you see a doctor who takes assignment from Medicare. You have to meet one of the following criteria that put you at risk for osteoporosis in order for Medicare to cover the bone

mass test: • A woman whose doctor (or other health care professional) is treating her for estrogen-deficiency and is at risk for osteoporosis based on her medical history. • A person with spinal abnormalities as demonstrated by an x-ray. • A person getting (or expected to receive) steroid treatments for more than three months. • A person with hyperparathyroidism (excess production of parathyroid hormone). • A person taking an osteoporosis drug. This test is covered as a preventive service once every 24 months if you are at risk. If you are in a Medicare Advantage plan (private health plan) you should check with your plan to find out what costs and rules apply.

NOTICE TO BE PUBLISHED: PETITION FOR TERMINATION OF PARENTAL RIGHTS STATE OF MAINE: DISTRICT COURT YORK, ss. DISTRICT TEN LOCATION: BIDDEFORD DOCKET NO. BID PC-10-19 LEGAL NOTICE TO: “Andrew,” last name unknown, last known to be living possibly in Bridgton, Maine. Pursuant to an Order for Service by Publication dated 06/03/2011, NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT: 1. Pursuant to M.R.S.A. §§4050-4057, the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services (“Department”) has filed a Petition for Termination of Parental Rights of the putative father (“Petition”) with regard to Michael Inman, D.O.B. August 14, 2008. 2. Mother of child is Tammy Inman. She has named as the child’s putative father, “Andrew,” last name unknown, who was last known possibly to be living in Bridgton, Maine. If you believe you may be the father of this child, you need to appear in Biddeford District Court as outlined below. 3. A hearing on the Department’s Petition will be held at the District Court, 25 Adams Street, Biddeford, ME 04005, on August 3, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. for any person who believes he may be the father of this child to hear and be heard. 4. Right to Legal Counsel A parent in these proceedings is entitled to legal counsel. If a parent wants an attorney but is unable to afford one that parent should contact the Court at the telephone number: (207) 283-1147 as soon as possible to request court appointed counsel. 5. If the parent fails to appear at the hearing regarding this matter, the court will most likely determine this to indicate an intent to abandon the child pursuant to 22 M.R.S.A ß4002 (1-A). 6. These proceedings have resulted in custody of the child being awarded to the Department and eventually may result in the termination of parental rights under M.R.S.A. §§4051–4057 if you fail to appear in Court at the above date and time. Dated: 06/03/2011 Wayne Douglas Judge, Maine District Court (6/30, 7/7, 7/14/2011)


every aspect of society during that same period, so it makes sense that, as our world has gone digital since 1998, so has the government. Still, the amount of unused server capacity and inefficiencies in our data centers suggest that this rapid-fire growth happened without ideal strategic planning. It is encouraging that the Office of Management and Budget plans to reduce the number of data centers by 800 by 2015, starting with the first round of 137 closures this year. And the savings in computer hardware and software purchases are only part of it. The closing of just one unnecessary data center — a 15,000-squarefoot facility near Washington — will save $1.2 million in annual electricity costs. Eliminating duplication and inefficiencies in government alone will not balance the budget and pay off the debt, but it is a necessary and overdue step toward fiscal responsibility. It will compel agencies to focus on their core missions and make programs easier to access for citizens. Most important, it will help restore the trust of the American people in their government.

tant source of clean energy, it helps reduce our reliance on foreign oil, and many Maine businesses, communities, and public facilities have adopted its use. In turn, biomass production and use support many jobs in Maine. Unfortunately, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations threaten the continued use of biomass boilers. In June 2010, the EPA published new standards for more than 200,000 boilers, process heaters, and incinerators. The onesize-fits-all set of rules apply across the entire United States and affect not only manufacturing, industrial, and commercial facilities, but also hospitals, schools, and apartment buildings. Moreover, by requiring extremely costly controls, these rules make boilers unaffordable for many communities and could put Maine jobs in jeopardy. By December of last year, EPA had received over 4,800 comments about the new regulations. When the agency asked the federal court for an additional 15 months to rewrite the rules in a way that was fair, their request was denied. EPA estimates that compliance with its boiler and incinerator rules will impose $5.8 billion in upfront capital costs as well as supplemental costs of more than $2.3 billion annually.

have built greenhouses and introduced fresh vegetables to their students, I’m thrilled to see how excited the students are at the prospect of eating food they helped grow. And whenever the subject comes up — whether I’m talking to bankers or real estate agents or teachers — it’s clear that Americans want better access to safe, healthy food. As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, I’m committed to fighting for changes in the way we set food policy in this country. We’ve waited a long time for these much-needed reforms, but it will have been worth the wait if we can make the changes we need. Congresswoman Chellie Pingree was elected to Congress in 2008, where she serves on the House Agriculture Committee. Chellie lives on Turner Farm on the island of North Haven, where she owns Nebo Inn and Restaurant.

Just a few ideas include: • Making it easier for lowincome families to use food stamp benefits at farmers’ markets. • Making it easier for schools to use more of their federal funding to buy fresh, local foods. • Supporting improvements in agricultural infrastructure — things like local slaughterhouses and food distribution networks. Think about the benefits that come from a more enlightened food policy: healthier children and families, lower health care costs, reduction of energy costs associated with transporting food thousands of miles, and more support for local farmers who can create jobs to boost the economy. There is no question that the desire for local foods is growing. When I visit schools that

$14 billion and put 224,000 jobs at risk. As a leader in the forest products and biomass industries, the state of Maine would be particularly hard hit. Among the list of potentially impacted facilities are Maine’s pulp and paper mills like Verso Paper, Old Town Fuel & Fiber, Lincoln Paper & Tissue, Sappi Fine Paper, and Woodland Pulp as well as Maine biomass power facilities like Boralex, Covanta, and Gallop Power. According to industry sources, the proposed rules would increase capital costs in Maine by over $650 million. These increases could potentially put hundreds of jobs at risk and impact over 60 Maine facili-

ties. In much of rural America, and especially in Maine, any hope of economic recovery is dependent upon the preservation of the kinds of high-quality jobs that are supported by biomass, such as those in our forest products industry. With U.S. unemployment remaining stubbornly high, we must support regulations that strike a balance between environmental protection and job creation and retention. That is why I recently cosponsored the EPA Regulatory Relief Act of 2011, which would grant the EPA the time it requested for the development of new, more workable rules. The bill would also provide industries, businesses, and facilities adequate time to comply with these regulations. We need to take responsible actions to protect our environment, but we need to do so in a reasonable way that does not jeopardize our efforts to protect jobs and get the economy back on track. It is my hope that Congress will recognize this need and pass the EPA Regulatory Relief Act to accomplish these goals.

Bernard M. Ducy Jr.

Janyce M. Burnham

Ruth A. Bonney

GRAY — Bernard (“Bernie”) M. Ducy Jr., 71, passed away on Friday, July 1, 2011 after a long struggle with Parkinson’s disease. Bernie was born to Bernard M. and Arline G. (Arey) Ducy on March 23, 1940 in Portland. As a young boy, he recorded his favorite song “You are My Sunshine” and continued to sing it with his grandchildren. Bernie lived in Portland until his teen years when his family moved to Gray. He graduated in 1958 from Pennell Institute, where he was a star basketball player. In June 1959, he enlisted in the United States Navy and attended Submarine School and S/M Diesel Engine School. Bernie received a Good Conduct Medal, served on the USS Halfbeak submarine, and received an honorable discharge in May 1963. He continued in the Naval Reserves until June 1965. During leave, he met the love of his life and on Aug. 8, 1964 married Sandra Mae Garland. They were married for 42 years and four days. Bernie was extremely skilled in carpentry and he built their first home on Long Hill Road. Bernie worked at the American Can Company in Portland. He was a very talented machinist and in later years he worked at Nichols Portland, Clarostat in Norway and in 2002 retired from Parker Nichols in Portland as a tool and die maker. After retirement he operated an antique business in Gray, Barnyard Antiques, with Sandy. One of Bernie’s amazing qualities was his love and compassion for people and animals. When Bernie saw a need, he sent his love. On many occasions, he would place an inconspicuous $20 or $100 dollar bill in your hand. Animals were a major love in his life. Always having one or more to care for, raise and love. He raised German shepherd puppies, sheep, chickens, turkeys, geese, beef animals and pigs (what an experience it is to chase pigs when they escape down the road). A few cats and doggie companions, including “Ladybug,” his little Shih Tzu that kept him company after losing Sandy. Bernie had many passions and will be remembered for his witty, dry sense of humor. Fishing with his daughter on Range Pond, catching white perch was a highlight. He took great pride in his immaculate lawns and meticulous vegetable gardens. The garden rows straight as arrows having no weeds. Even those that didn’t know him would stop to comment on the beauty. Many, many hours were spent with his wife and lifelong friends Barry and Nancy Carver Mains playing cards. Bernie and Nancy were cousins, but in Bernie’s heart they were brother and sister. After attending church on Sundays, most recently Pathway Vineyard in Lewiston and previously at Trinity Church in Gray, he spent afternoons enjoying a NASCAR race or a Boston Red Sox game with his son Bruce. In the evenings he enjoyed going with his grandchildren Emily and Michael to the Dugout in Windham for an ice cream. Bernie never missed an opportunity to indulge in the extraordinary goodies baked by his granddaughter Emily, to stop for an ice cream or his weekly trip or two to Roy’s Hamburger in Auburn. It goes without saying, if you knew Bernie, the light of his life and reason to continue the fight were for his daughter and her family. Bernie was predeceased by his parents; a son Michael Anthony and his loving wife Sandy. He leaves behind a brother, Gilbert Ducy of Waterford; a daughter Brenda Sawyer of Gray and two grandchildren; a son Ronald and his children. Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, July 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Gray. There will be no funeral services. Memorial donations may be made to: Gray Fire and Rescue, 125 Shaker Road, Gray, ME 04039.

SOUTH CARTHAGE — Janyce May Burnham, 51, of South Carthage, died peacefully and unexpectedly at her home on Tuesday, June 21, 2011.   She was born in Salem, Mass. on Feb. 1, 1960. She attended Gould Academy and graduated from Lake Region High School in 1978. She graduated from Marion Court Secretarial School in 1979. She is survived by her husband, Frank M. Burnham, and her children Melissa, Jasmine and Dillon Burnham; four grandchildren; her parents Ronald and Arlene Gauthier of Bridgton; and her sisters Judy Huntress of Bridgton and Jayne Pappas of Waterford.

Wildreth C. Burnell PACE, FLORIDA — Wildreth C. Burnell, 77, formerly of North Sebago, died on June 24, 2011. She was born in Portland, Maine at Maine General Hospital, on Aug. 28, 1933, the daughter of Edwin and Velma Wormwood. She attended local schools in Sebago but did not graduate due to family needs and work. She later earned her G.E.D. at Lake Region High School. She worked for 30 years at Fairchild Semiconductor in South Portland and retired as an executive secretary. After retiring Wildreth volunteered at Lake Region High School and worked with the Foster Grandparent Program. Friends and loved ones alike often called her “Willy.” She loved to cook and prepare meals for special occasions, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. She also enjoyed going out to lunch or dinner with loved ones. Wildreth went camping for many years at Papoose Pond with her husband and grandchildren, and good friends Mike and Evelyn, Carl, and Maggie and David. She enjoyed playing cards and singing while the men played guitars in the evening, around the campfire. She liked to go fishing and snowmobiling and also to a dance on a summer evening. She kept a very clean and neat home and her kitchen was her favorite room. She was an early riser and loved her first cup of coffee in the morning, often accompanied by a good crossword from the paper. An avid reader, she loved a good mystery novel. She had an infectious laugh and enjoyed a good joke or story. One of her favorite sayings was, “I cracked up!” Wildreth was a stylish dresser and was very particular about the way she looked. She was sure to have her “hair done,” on a regular schedule. She always kept cards and letters from family and friends and could not bear to throw one out. She enjoyed all kinds of music and was always eager to hear a new artist. She loved her little dog, “Holly,” who was a close companion for 13 years. With Wildreth, her glass was always, “half full” and not half empty. She loved to receive new pictures of her great-grandchildren and she was an avid “Facebook” enthusiast. Wildreth eventually became a “Snow Bird,” spending her winters in Fla. and returning to spend summers in Maine. Two years ago she moved to Pace, Fla. full-time to live near her daughter. She was a devoted Mother and Grandmother and will be sadly missed by her family and friends. She was predeceased by her husband of 44 years, Austin H. Burnell. She was also predeceased by two sisters, Donna Lee and Sharon Demers. Surviving siblings are: Alston Wormwood of Standish, Waverly Turgo of Portland, and Ronald Wormwood of Scarborough.

Food Pantry hours expanded

Kezar Lake Memoirs Additionally, they left behind a large amount of written material. Kezar Lake Memoirs is a collection of those writings, which reflect a defining time in Lovell’s history. The population and economy had been in decline for many years and tourism was about to become Lovell’s major industry. The five campers witnessed and documented the growth of hotels and boarding houses and changes in the lake’s usage and the area’s wildlife. They also wrote about the long-lasting friendships they developed and the folklore they heard. Their writings are combined with over 70 images from the Lovell Historical Society’s collection. Those interested in purchasing the book should call the Society at 925-3234 or stop by the Society’s Kimball-Stanford House. The building is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Society can also be reached by e-mail at

BOOKS AND BIKES — Happy Harrison Elementary students with their new bikes as Masons Pete Sepich and Phil Denison look on.

10 students win bikes

HARRISON — Each year, Mason Lodges across the country promote education and reading by donating new bikes and helmets to kids through their Bikes for Books Program. Working with local elementary school teachers at Harrison Elementary School and Otisfield Community School, the Masons’ Crooked River Lodge #152 A.F. & A.M. recently rewarded 10 students with new bikes and helmets for their reading accomplishments. Otisfield Community School teachers of grades 1 through 4 and Harrison Elementary School teachers of grades 1 through 6 developed the reading criteria for their students. Typically, the more books you read, the better

your chance at winning a bike. One child from each grade was chosen to receive a bike and helmet. “This reading program helps every student set goals and work toward achieving them,” said Mason Tom Nolan. “Along the way, kids learn that reading is fun. The Bikes for Books Program is a great way for our lodge to support kids and public education.” The Crooked River Masons want to thank Ernie’s Cycle Shop in Westbrook for providing the high-quality bikes and helmets at a reduced price. The discount allowed them to purchase bikes and helmets for more students. Committed to community service, the Masonic fraternity


is the oldest and largest fraternal order in the world. For more information about becoming a Mason, contact Will Denison at 712-5740 or Tom Nolan at 8072988 or

LOVELL — The Lovell Historical Society has just published a new book, Kezar Lake Memoirs, edited by Catherine Ingram Stone. In the summer of 1889, five young men arrived on the shores of Kezar Lake in Lovell. They climbed the surrounding mountains, caught abundant fish, and thoroughly enjoyed “camp life.”     From that year on, they visited Kezar every summer, camping on the islands in the Upper Bay. The composition of the group varied over the years but the primary participants were Arthur P. Stone, William H. Allison, Frederick W. Dallinger, Lewis D. Hill, and William E. Stark. In 1900, they purchased Rattlesnake Island — their preferred camping spot — for $1,000. Over 100 years later, the island remains in their families’ hands, as do the adjoining properties that Stone privately acquired. These men kept extensive records of their early visits to Lovell. Photographs, including those from their first camping expedition in 1889, still exist.

BAKER’S HELPER — Home Helper Dog Montana knows how to open a stove, turn on a light switch and fetch a telephone, among other skills.

A new type of home helper dog Assistance Canine Services (ACTS), located in Tuftonboro, N.H., has launched a new Home Helper Dog Program. Home helper dogs are trained dogs that help people with a variety of disabilities or difficulties. These dogs are taught to help their partners in the home with specific difficulties that they might have in their day-to-day living. Home helper dogs are trained in all the same skills as service dogs, but because they are not full service dogs in need of extensive public access training, the waiting list, the application process, the cost, and the team training time for these dogs is generally much shorter.   The need for a dog to help clients at home became more and more obvious to ACTS Executive Director Dorothy Hyde-Williams.  “It’s hard for people to wait for a long time for a service dog. Some people don’t need a dog with public access training. Some people only need help at home,” she said.

Hyde-Williams said that public access training is very involved. “Difficulties with public access will eliminate some forms of service dog work for many of our very well trained dogs,” she said. “These very well trained dogs can now be placed in working partnerships helping someone in need in their home.” Home helper fogs are trained to assist their human partners by fetching things, turning on and off light switches, opening and closing doors, and performing an emergency phone fetch. These dogs can also be trained to perform specific tasks tailored to an individual’s needs. According to trainer Robin Crocker of Center Conway, N.H., “Our first home helper dog placement was a happy accident.” According to Crocker, she met veteran Mark Lawton of Tuftonboro at a local store. He talked about getting an ACTS flunkout. He was not sure he needed a service dog, and he did not want

to wait for one. Crocker realized they might have a dog that could help him with some of his needs at home.  The golden retriever, Luna, was trained specifically for Mark. Mark suffered from post traumatic stress disorder, back injuries, and hearing loss. When Mark’s family called him, he did not come because he could not hear them. Luna was taught to, “find dad,” and bring him back to whoever was calling him. She was also taught to fetch dropped articles for him. His PTSD symptoms were sometimes very unsettling for him, so Luna was taught to “snuggle next to Mark” on command and to gently “sit across Mark’s lap”

for the





on command. The process of applying for a home helper dog involves an application form, a small application fee, and an interview. As with the service dog placements, home helper dogs are matched with clients based on the personality and needs of each client.    “All our dogs have different strengths and weaknesses,” explained Hyde-Williams. Each dog and client must be a good match so a bond is formed. Eventually that bond turns into a true partnership.   ACTS is a nonprofit organization with a mission to train service dogs for the disabled. ACTS also trains home helper dogs, balance dogs and facility dogs. For more information, visit or their Facebook page, or call 603-569-9991.
