Talks become a bit contentious

Little movement between SAD 61, Sebago Withdrawal Committee By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer Negotiations between SAD 61 and the Sebago Withdrawal Committee regarding the elementary school’s future and whether the town will remain with the district ran the gamut of emotions — heated at times, confusion and hopeful. The two sides met a week ago as the Withdrawal Committee, headed by consultant Dr. Mark Eastman (a former superintendent of schools for SAD 17), raised various positions included in a proposed “draft agreement.” At the start of the meeting, SAD 61 Superintendent Al Smith set forth a few ground rules before the two sides started discussing Sebago’s “draft agreement.” “We are here for the right reasons to come to some type of resolution, if not, we’ll move toward the next steps in the (withdrawal) process,” he said. Dr. Eastman opened his presentation indicating the group had sent SAD 61 officials “an alternative” to withdraw. “There is a lot of interest in the Town of Sebago,” he said. “They are concerned about their school, but I don’t think their first priority is to withdraw. The alternative proposal was not intended to be a dictate, at all, but a conversation starter. We would like to walk through it and talk about what our thinking was, and make it very clear that it wasn’t the last word and are willing to talk about it, negotiate it.” He added, the group is interested in achieving a “positive

solution” for SAD 61 as well as citizens of Sebago. Stan Buchanan, a SAD 61 director from Casco, pointed out that the board has the interest of all students at heart. “When I first read the proposal, I took it as you were dictating what was going to happen, and it didn’t sit well with me,” he said. Some elements of the proposed agreement include: • The SAD 61 long-term capital plan will include an addition/ renovation plan for updating of the Sebago Elementary School (SES) facility and addition of a gymnasium to SES, to be completed no later than any other elementary school construction project within SAD 61. • The SAD 61 board agrees to keep SES open as a grade Pre K-6 school for a minimum period of 20 years from the date of this agreement. This agreement may only be reassessed in the following circumstances: The number of Sebago resident students educated by the district in grades Pre K-6 is less than 40; The State Board of Education approves a replacement school in Sebago with debt service qualifying for purposes of state subsidy (any replacement school shall be subject to approval of Sebago voters); The SAD 61 board determines that the school has been substantially destroyed by fire. • If a warrant for a referendum to approve funding for a reasonable construction project to address capacity issues in SAD

61 elementary schools is issued after a favorable referendum vote in the Town of Sebago, the board of selectmen and members of the Withdrawal Committee will not actively oppose the construction referendum. • In the event SAD 61 proposes to close SES for lack of need for the reason provided in section 6 (a), the SAD 61 board shall give at least one year advance notice to the town before initiating a school closing by filing the cost determination application with the Department of Education. • A school closing is subject to local referendum approval. The SES building shall be offered to the Town of Sebago at no cost if the building is no longer used to educate grade Pre K-6 students. • This agreement shall terminate if the Town of Sebago votes to withdraw from SAD 61. If an agreement is reached with the school district, the Withdrawal Committee would ask Sebago voters to rescind the withdrawal process. There was, however, no movement on the proposal. “Folks in Sebago believe returning the sixth grade to town would relieve some pressures at the middle school,” Eastman said. A major sticking point was the 40-student figure used as the trigger number for possible school closure. “We don’t have overcrowding at the middle school,” Smith first responded. “In regards to the 40-student cut-off point, the school already costs the district $12,000 to educate a student there. Sebago covers 14%, and the other towns pick up the remaining, which is fine, it’s what districts do. When you start TALKS, Page 3A

BUSY IS THE WORD OF THE SUMMER for Casco’s Code Enforcement Officer Alex Sirois.

Town Hall walls go up late July One on One with... Alex Sirois

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO — Now is the lull before the storm of activity. Both the electrician and the plumber have done what work they could before the Casco Town Hall structure takes shape. “The materials will be there sometime next week, and NEAL-CO will be starting work” on Monday, July 18, according to Casco Town Manager Dave Morton. NEAL-CO is a general contractor company owned by Seth Neal and based in

Wilton, according to the business website. “It’s a Lake Region company,” Morton said. “The electrician and plumber have been doing work, running conduits, pulling some wires. That’s on hold now until the building gets erected,” Morton said. The groundbreaking occurred on May 9, when R.N. Willey and Sons Excavation began the earth work. With the future town hall being built on the same property as the existing town hall,

it has been easy for Morton and town employees to monitor the progress on a daily basis. But, that progress is at a short-term standstill. “The first coat of pavement is done. The ground work is done except for loaming and seeding, and the landscaping,” Morton said, adding that those details will be taken care of once the structure is completed. The Town of Casco is acting as the general contractor during the town hall construction project. The expen-

diture of up to $600,000 for the town office construction was approved at Town Meeting in 2015. According to Morton, the project cost has been running about 15 to 20 percent less than predicted. During this year’s Town Meeting, residents approved the purchase of 11 acres adjacent to the town land off Meadow Road. The new acreage also has waterfront access to Parker Pond. However, people might want to hold off on planning WALLS, Page 2A

Cyclist dies, police search for car EFFINGHAM, N.H. — A 21-year-old Bridgton man died of his injuries following a traffic accident last Thursday night, June 30, on Route 25 near the intersection of Route 153 in Effingham, N.H. Jonathan Kauffman was traveling west on his 2014 Harley Davidson XL1200 motorcycle when it collided with a white sedan. Police are still looking for the woman who struck the man as he was riding his motorcycle. Kauffman, a Lake Region High School graduate, died due to his injuries at Maine Medical Center in Portland early Friday morning.

Described as a person with an “infectious smile” and a “lust for life,” Kauffman worked as a mechanic for the Lake Region High School Transportation Department. A celebration of life is scheduled for this Friday, July 8 at 6 p.m. at Lake Region High School (see obituary in this week’s edition). The New Hampshire State Police are still seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the white four-door sedan and other operator involved in this collision. At approximately 7:30 p.m. on June 30, the Effingham Police Department was notified of a serious motor vehicle crash on Route

25. When troopers and other emergency personnel arrived at the accident scene, they found Kauffman’s motorcycle in the middle of the westbound lane. Kauffman sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision and was transported to Maine Medical Center by DHART helicopter. Officials reported that it does not appear as though Kauffman was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Police say the other vehicle involved in the accident was a sedan bearing New York registration plates, an orange plate with black numbers. The operator was identified as a black female,

medium build with glasses and a ponytail. Based upon the initial onscene investigation, police say it appears that the sedan stopped suddenly in the middle of the westbound lane as the motorcycle was traveling westbound. The motorcycle was not able to stop in time, lost control and struck the back of the vehicle. The New Hampshire State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene, and was assisted by the New Hampshire State Police Troop E, the Effingham Police Department and the Effingham Fire/EMS CYCLIST, Page 5A

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO — Alex Sirois, the former assistant code enforcement officer in Poland, stepped aboard as Casco’s only CEO during the most hectic time of year. During a half-hour interview, office staff stepped in to check on the status of a residential septic system. “It’s a busy time of year. This would have definitely been easier to do in November, December or January,” Sirois said. During the course of one week, there are between 10 and 15 inquiries to the code enforcement department, not to mention building inspections that need to be scheduled. “If we can get through this month, we should be all set,” he said. Already, Sirois has been updating his department’s website to give people access to the answers of those most frequently asked questions. This was a project he undertook for the Town of Poland. “We will be redoing the website, the code enforcement part, to make it a lot more citizen friendly. The mindset is that if they can find the information on their own online, they won’t be calling or stopping by here,” he said. “And, that frees up time.” The website improvements “will be a work in progress whenever there is time,” he said. Sirois took some time to answer questions for The News on Wednesday morning. BN. How many years have you been in code enforceQ&A, Page 2A

We won’t own the property until September or October,” Morton said. “We still have to borrow the money for the purchase,” he said. According to Morton, the property owner, Lucy Jackson, wanted to honor her rental obligations and give her tenants a few months to move out of the homes located on the parcel that is being sold, Morton said. “We don’t have a plan for using the waterfront until we go forward with the purchase,” he said. “We are delaying the purchase until September.” Meanwhile, property owners in the Town of Casco will not be taxed until 2017 for the land purchase and the infrastructure bond that were approved at Town Meeting. “You won’t see the impact from the bonds until 2017,” he said. The tax bills are mailed out in late August or early September; and those bills are due in two payments in October and in April. So, the 10-year bond payments won’t appear on the tax bills until August 2017, Morton said.

Airport lands grant U.S. Senators Susan Collins, chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, and Angus King, announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded a total of $947,680 in funding to two airports — Eastern Slope in Fryeburg and Augusta State Airport — in Maine. The funding is awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration, an agency within the DOT. “In a rural state like Maine, regional airports are important pieces of our transportation system that help strengthen the tourism industry and support jobs across our state,” Senators Collins and King said in a joint statement. “This funding will bolster our transportation infrastructure and help support local economies across Maine.” The funding will be awarded as follows: Eastern Slope Regional Airport in Fryeburg will receive $552,986 to fund reconstruction of approximately 7,800 square yards of the existing apron pavement that has reached the end of its use. Augusta State Airport in Augusta will receive $394,694 to fund rehabilitation of the apron, runway, and taxiway pavement, as well as removing obstructions on the runway.

USDA Rural Development Under Secretary Lisa Mensah and Congresswoman Chellie Pingree announced that 13 Maine businesses and farms — including Harvest Gold Gallery in Center Lovell — have been selected to receive a total of $108,001 to help them lower their energy costs and implement renewable energy systems. “Today’s announcement of Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) grants will have a tremendous impact on these 13 rural Maine businesses,” Mensah said during a visit to McDougal Orchards in Springvale with Rep. Pingree. “It will help them lower their carbon emissions significantly and reduce overall operating costs. Helping rural businesses thrive and become self-sustaining is a critical role for USDA Rural Development in rural communities across the country.

Q&A with Casco CEO Alex Sirois (Continued from Page 1A) ment? Alex: I have been working in code enforcement for a little over three years now. BN. What were some of the highlights of your job as assistant CEO in Town of Poland? Alex: The greatest thing I take away from my time in Poland is the connections made. I was able to meet some great citizens and contractors while there, and I look forward to being able to continue that in Casco. BN. What made you decide to apply for the CEO job with the Town of Casco? Alex: I heard great things about the town, and its administration. BN. How has your first week at work been? Alex: Busy! The staff at the town office has been great, making the transition very smooth. BN. How would you describe your first month as CEO in Casco? Alex: Things have definitely settled down into a

groove. Once you get the office system put together — collecting e-mails and phone calls, things get a little more streamlined. Things are definitely more organized than week one. There is a lot going on; and it’s very easy for things to pile up. BN. What do you anticipate will take up most of your time — Shoreland Zoning stuff, building permits that require on-site visits, general questions from the public, answering reporters’ questions, reading the ordinances? Alex: Right now my focus has been on getting acquainted with the town’s zoning ordinance, and fielding questions. As things progress I can see Shoreland Zoning related questions, permits, and inspections taking up a majority of my time here. BN. Do you consider yourself to be a people person or a things person? Alex: Probably, a people person. I don’t seem to have too much alone time, even when I am not here. BN. As far as code enforcement goes, what relat-

job in code enforcement? That’s a good question because a lot of people don’t see that connection. They don’t see how code enforcement and communication relate. This job is 80 percent communications and 20 percent researching codes. Good communication skills are absolutely essential. It’s important to get back to people right away. We get between 10 and 15 people calling a day with questions. BN. What other jobs did you have before getting into code enforcement for the Town of Poland? Alex: I actually managed a kitchen for three years, which was something else. I have been working for Poland since 2011.

SAD 61, Sebago heat up said. “We know these things do happen. Attorneys have ways to work through issues.” Eastman pointed out a 10-year pact in Dirigo and a 20-year pact in Poland. “There is an opportunity here,” he said. “Give us a 10-year with a five-year right of review. You can decide to extend it or not. Gives us a fiveyear notice to Sebago that you may not want to continue with the school,” Eastman said. “You would expect to keep the school open with eight teachers and five kids per classroom?” School Board Chairman Janice Barter asked. Johnson replied, “This was a starting point. It was never said this was set in stone. To not get a counter, it makes me feel that a withdrawal is encouraged by you. Otherwise, we would be having some discussion and some movement around this. There is no movement, so I feel this is a closed door to us, and it pushes us toward withdrawal.” Bridgton Director Karla Swanson-Murphy said, “Did the Town of Sebago not vote to start the withdrawal process?

I expected from that vote it is what the town desires.” Eastman replied, “There is some confusion here. We were told the only way we could have a discussion with SAD 61 board was to initiate the withdrawal process.” Former school board member and current Withdrawal Committee member Richard Merritt said, “Your superintendent was not willing to talk with us.” “I may be a lot of things, but I am not a liar. What you are saying about me is a lie. I offered during an open (selectmen’s) meeting that I would be willing to meet with a small group and talk about how we could do things differently. That is not true Richard,” Smith responded. “We need to move past this if we are going to have any opportunity to resolve this. We are here to listen to your thoughts about not withdrawing. I said several times you did not need to start the withdrawal process.” One suggestion was for Sebago taxpayers to pick up additional costs (over what

to keep costs down no matter what we do, but you still get to a place you can’t do that. We have to be fiscally responsible to all of our communities. The state doesn’t look to help schools under 130 students. We are making it work. It’s not inexpensive.” If the sixth grade had remained at SES and not moved to Lake Region Middle School, the school population would be close to 100, Eastman noted. Adding Pre K could enhance enrollment, and attract young families to move to Sebago. Superintendent Smith pointed out that a number of school systems added Pre K as a means to maintain or gain more state aid at a time when their student populations were shrinking. Here in SAD 61, the

district receives little state aid, thus “whatever we do, it falls on the backs of our taxpayers,” Smith said. “I really have to keep a better eye on things financially than I ever have. I’m not opposed to keeping a school open, but when you get to a point when economics and education are crashing together, you need to look at alternatives.” Hearing possible options — multi-grades and Sebago paying more to keep grade levels if enrollment shrinks — Eastman felt “some progress” was being made. “It’s not leaps and bounds,” he said. It’s a start. The two groups will continue discussions this Tuesday, July 12, at 7 p.m. at the Lake Region High School library.

(Continued from Page 1A) talking about these numbers, you’re talking about educating students at $22,000. Some things you have here don’t make sense to me as a superintendent.” Smith also didn’t like the tone regarding district construction projects and whether Sebago would support or oppose. “When you say you won’t oppose a construction project if you do X, Y and Z, I find that threatening, I don’t understand it from a district standpoint when you need to look at what’s best for all kids. I do understand the situation with the (SES) cafeteria, but we have to look at things from a fiscal situation and what needs to come first,” Smith said. “The (draft agreement) proposal was not a good starting point because it is very far reaching in many areas. You can negotiate anything, but you need a place where there are reasonable opportunities to have success.” Eastman asked if the district had “a number” other than 40 that would make fiscal sense. “I’m not recommending anything, I am listening to your thoughts,” Smith responded. Withdrawal Committee member Lisa Johnson thought a 20-year no school closure guarantee may be too far reaching, but felt it was a starting point for discussion. “Our attorney recommended to us that it would not be wise for this board to make a decision that would impact boards in the future. By that, he is saying this board doesn’t have a legal right to make a decision to keep the school open. There are opportunities for assurances,” Smith said. Eastman reduced the figure to a 10-year minimum no closure guarantee. “There have been no formal motions or initiatives to close SES. We felt, if that’s the case, getting a 10-year commitment would not be a problem,” he

other elementary school student costs may be) to keep grade levels open even if enrollment drops to 40. Eastman tossed out the idea of multi-age classrooms as a way to reduce costs in a small school. “You look at creative solutions,” he said. Barter said SES currently has class sizes of 12, while Songo Locks and Bridgton have 18-plus. Merritt said the multi-age class scenario had been raised before, and claimed Barter responded at the time it was not educationally sound. Barter said her children were part of multi-age classes, but with changes in testing and standards, that educational approach is no longer viable. “It’s not what is educationally sound now,” she said. “I’ve seen it done well and not done well. It depends on the skill of the teacher as well as the grouping of students,” Smith said. “From an educational standpoint, can it work, yes. Can it fail, yes. I want to know is this the reason why we are here? What can we work out so our elementary school stays K-5, Pre K-5 (when we can put it together), what will it look like in five years? We try

That’s why REAP is so vital in a state like Maine.” Harvest Gold Jewelry Company, in Lovell, received a $4,043 grant to purchase and install a 9.12 kW solar PV ground-mounted system to benefit this fine crafted gold jewelry maker and gallery of fine arts. This system is projected to produce 7,931 kWh annually and meet 100 percent of the company’s business energy demands.

Birch Canoe vendors ride wave of tourism The Birch Canoe, 90 Roosevelt Trail, Casco, Maine Giftshop Hours: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., daily Phone number: (207) 655-6440 For more information: Please check out The Birch Canoe on Facebook By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO — Laura O’Leary has been collecting sea glass for 30 years. One day, her husband and children asked her what she planned to do with her massive collection. Then, her family got tough and told O’Leary that if she never did anything with the glass, eventually it would get thrown out. That was the impetus for O’Leary to incorporate sea glass into artwork that is truly 3-D. With a bit of creativity, a set of colored sketching pens and the frequent use of her hot glue gun, O’Leary started crafting the sea glass into framed artwork. She creates images of families of birds made out of sea glass. The birds are doing human activities like riding bicycles, fishing in a boat or playing at the beach. People can custom-order

scenes to reflect their family, she said. So, the threat of having a valued collection of sea glass just tossed out — that is how Ocean Current Art was born. Now, she sells sea glass in South Casco. In fact, O’Leary is one of 140 business owners who sell their products at The Birch Canoe. The gift shop is located right off Route 302 in the building formerly known as Cry of the Loon. Last month, the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the gift shop. Then, on June 4, The Birch Canoe celebrated with a grand opening. According to Cheryl Segda, a co-owner of the new gift shop, the most populard items are “a lot of art work, stuff with loons on it, and glassware.” “Very popular are the sauces and Black Dinah chocolates,” Segda said. “People are complimentary on the way we have set up the store, what we sell, and the number of vendors we carry,” she said. “We have 140 vendors. So, we get a lot, a whole lot of compliments,” Segda said. The vendors are varied: BIRCH, Page 7A

There are several businesses that use Maine-grown produce to infuse flavor into barbecue sauces, baked goods and candy. During the grand opening, the food vendors fired up the barbecue so people could taste test the products. Choosing the blueberry as his inspiration, Kelts Gordon, the owner of The Kennebunkport Sauce Co., said sales are sweet. There are plans to move his business out of his home

and into a building with more room for expansion, he said. There is a wide flavor of barbecue sauces based on the wild blueberry, Gordon said. Kathy Beauregard., a resident of Industry, Maine, said her quilted fairy wands are inspired by her greatgrandmother who was from the Czech Republic. “They wore lots of bright colors,” she said. “That’s what I start with: Color. I use buttons, bits of pieces of fabric from a shirt. And, everything is fairy-inspired,” Kathy said. “For a lot of crafts people

LITTLE HANDS, but for all generations is the theme at the Agriculture & Conservation Family Day at the Waterford Fair, Friday, July 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Waterford Fairgrounds in North Waterford.

Agriculture & Conservation Family Day at World’s Fair NORTH WATERFORD — Friday, July 15 is Agriculture & Conservation Family Day at Waterford Fair. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., visitors to the fairgrounds will be treated to an array of exhibits that are fun and educational for the whole family. New to the fair this year will be “Little Hands for Forestry,” where children under the age of 8 can learn how to plant a tree, care for the tree as it grows, “harvest” the tree, load it into the pedal tractor and wagon, and take

it to the paper mill, where they can unload their lumber and receive play money, which may be redeemed at the WoodShop Store for many different items made from trees. Other areas of the special Forestry exhibit will include making balsam sachets, playing a tree memory game, learning how paper is made, who and what live in trees, what tree “cookies” can tell us about a tree and Oxford County District Forester Merle Ring will help children — and parents and

grandparents — learn something about how to identify trees. Many other exhibits will be available for the whole family to enjoy. Norway Police Chief Rob Federico will be on hand to visit with attendees while the children explore a police cruiser and learn about his job. There will be a blacksmith, bees, oxen, Brendi’s Petting Barn, Responsible Pet Care, Norway/Paris Fish & Game and so much more! Don’t forget to stop by the “Little Hands for Agriculture” exhibit, where children 10 and under will learn all about growing and marketing.

Sign up with Miss Marilyn to win prizes, check out our new corntoss and horseshoes games, try your hand at making really big bubbles or just come and visit with folks. Agriculture & Conservation Family Day is open to all free of charge. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the fair or buy some of the delicious food, and ice cream, prepared by members of the fair.

Heather Masse and Jed Wilson to feature at Brick Church benefit

LOVELL — What can you expect when you pair Heather Masse with Jed Wilson and place them in a venue with perfect acoustics? A stunning, intoxicating extravaganza of jazz, folk and blues. When and where? On Thursday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m. at a benefit performance at The Brick Church for the Performing Arts in Lovell. Although this dynamic and engaging duo performs in theaters and venues across the country, including many guest spots on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, Lovell lays proud claim to both of them. Singer-songwriter Heather grew up in Lovell, though she and her family now reside in the Catskills; pianist Jed lives in Lovell now. Heather Masse began singing at an early age. Trained at the New England Conservatory of Music as a jazz singer, she is steeped in the jazz tradition, which informs her distinct approach to singing folk, pop and bluegrass. A member of the Canadian group “The

Wailin’ Jennys,” Heather has performed at top venues, sharing the stage with the world’s most acclaimed pop, classical and jazz acts, including Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Bruce Cockburn, Joan Osborne, Bruce Hornsby and the Boston Pops Orchestra. Heather’s many recordings include her solo debut album “Bird Song” (Red House Records, 2009). Of her 2013 CD, “Lock My Heart,” an album of jazz standards and originals with legendary pianist Dick Hyman, reviewer C. Michael Bailey wrote, “Masse’s voice is perfectly natural and fresh — lush and supple. She is neither married to the melody nor has the compulsion to show off vocal fireworks. She is relaxed as opium and honey, yet is as exacting as a mathematical equation.” Her newest release, “August Love Song,” presents another remarkable musical collaboration, this time with octogenarian trombone maverick Roswell Rudd. Jed Wilson and Heather

Masse have been creating dynamic music together for some time. Wilson grew up in Gladstone, Oregon, and began studying piano at a young age. As a teenager, he was an active performer on the Portland, Oregon jazz scene, and won prestigious awards (including Downbeat Magazine’s “Best High School Jazz Soloist” honor three years in a row). Wilson received a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Performance from New England Conservatory in 2004. While still a student at NEC, he formed a longstanding musical partnership with renowned jazz vocalist (and NEC faculty member) Dominique Eade. The duo toured widely, and in 2006-released a critically-acclaimed CD that appeared on many of the year’s Top 10 album lists. In his review, Bill Beuttler of the Boston Globe wrote, “Wilson’s piano work, skilled and subtle, made plain why a guy so young has become Eade’s duo partner of choice.” Currently, Jed is presenting a six-part series of concerts with guest artists,

He and Heather will be accompanying Prairie Home Companion on an August cruise in Alaska. Heather and Jed met as jazz students at The New England Conservatory of Music and have been performing together ever since — for more than 13 years. Their live show mixes a range of music: original, folk, jazz, blues, and country. Their collaboration has resulted in two albums and a host of appear-

ances across North America. In 2008, Heather released “Many Moons,” an EP of jazz-inspired folk duets with Jed. It is rare indeed to hear artists like Heather and Jed in an informal, local setting. The concert audience will enjoy an extraordinary opportunity— and help support the Brick Church for the Performing Arts, a great local architectural masterpiece. The Masse-Wilson concert will take place on Thursday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m., at the Brick Church for the

Performing Arts on Christian Hill Road in Lovell. Tickets ($20) will be available at the door; refreshments will be served at intermission. For more information or for reservations, call 207-925-1500.

Entertainment & Concerts

CENTER LOVELL — Harvest Gold Gallery is happy to announce that work of master wood carver Gene Whitney is now on exhibit! Focusing on creating true-to-life recreations of fish, songbirds, and birds of prey, Whitney’s carvings are award-winning masterpieces. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Whitney moved to the United States at an early age. His interest in painting began seriously for him at age 12, and continued into adulthood: learning many different styles of painting and creating from many different teachers and schools. After a long career in illustration and design, Whitney took his art a step further and combined his skill in painting and in carving to create the sculptural marvels that he has become so well renowned for. Whitney’s carvings have won multiple first place awards in competitions throughout New England, including at the Maine Coast Competition of the Penobscot Bay Carvers and Artists Association, the New England Wood Carvers Competition, and the Maine Sportsman’s

Rocking it on the Fourth of July Marube, Pierce Barry return to winner’s circle Moninda Marube returned to Bridgton with one thing on his mind… It wasn’t about winning his third title. For the 37-year-old, it was simply about being a part of something special. “First, I would like to deeply appreciate good organization of the race, a wonderful officer driving the lead car and great spectators along the course. Job well done,” the Auburn resident said. “I didn’t come to 4 on the Fourth to compete, but to race for a great cause I so much believe in.

The story about the sanctity of human life and the need of us (human beings) treating each other with love and not as commodities in the market, like in the cases of human trafficking, which to me is a total disregard of human value.” Marube’s focus now has shifted to school at the University of Maine at Farmington. “School comes first, then running second,” he said. “However, my cause of fighting human trafficking continues and I appeal to like minds to join me in fighting this vice, which is growing day and night here in the United States and other parts of the world, making it third most lucrative organized crime in the world.” As for the race, Marube stayed with the

Jim Johnson of Madison, N.H. was second in 21:03 while Silas Eastman, the former Fryeburg Academy standout and now Colby College runner, was third in 21:09, fighting off a challenge by Chris Garvin of Charlestown, R.I., who checked in at 21:13. “I would say that the weather wasn’t bad at all — a little warm but not like 2014,” added Marube, who won titles in 2013 and 2014. Kristin Pierce Barry, 42, of Scarborough was the fastest female with a time of 24:31, placing 31st overall. It was Pierce Barry’s fourth career win at Bridgton, her titles coming in 1998, 2001 and 2002. Last year’s champ, Erin Flynn of Newton, Mass. crossed the finish line in 24:42, 33rd overall, while former Fryeburg Academy standout Anna Lastra of Bridgton, 18, was 46th overall in 25:48. 2016 Race Notes • Race Founders, Phoebe and Jerry Levine, RACE NOTES, Page 3C

Calling the fire brigade

A spate of articles in the national press last week grabbed my liberal conscience. They were unrelated on the surface, but tied together by what they say — explicitly or implicitly — ails our society. Let me be more explicit about how I understood them. First was a lengthy story about how emergency services are handled in some locales. “Dial 911 and you get Wall Street” was the (approximate) headline. The reporters described how some hard-pressed communities have sold off their ambulance and fire and rescue operations to private equity groups. The latter see profits in these operations that, in their analysis, have been neglected by less cost-conscious community managements. (Before going further, be it noted that Bridgton’s fire and rescue service is a taxpayer-financed town responsibility. Our ambulance service is part of the Lewiston hospital and paid for like any healthcare service, i.e., the patient’s insurance provider is billed for the charge. It also benefits from a town subsidy of $51,000.) Wall Street found they could easily cut staff and hours and operational equipment, for example. Too bad if the emergency crew arrives too late and a life is loss. The Wall Street owner, nevertheless, gets to charge for the delayed effort made. That might seem rather hard on a family if the breadwinner has been lost or its home has been burned to the ground. The citizen losers might think that a community has an obligation to its members to protect health, safety and property. While it is well established that a community has a responsibility to provide education (although the quality of that service is not assured), other services are matters of BRIGADE, Page 5D

Medicare nugget

By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor Remember the infamous “doughnut hole” in Medicare Part D? Well, it is going to be with us for three and a half more years. This coverage gap kicks-in when drug purchases under Medicare Part D (computed from Jan. 1) reach a certain dollar level. This year, that level is $3310 and includes both the buyer’s co-pays and the contributions from the plan. The good news is that, because of provisions in the 2010 Affordable Care Act, big discounts apply to drugs bought during the coverage gap. And these discounts increase each year: Year/Brand name drugs/Generic 2016: 55% — 42% 2017: 60% — 49% 2018: 65% — 56% 2019: 70% — 63% 2020: No more “doughnut hole” Medicare volunteer counselors are available for one-on-one consultations at no charge.

Writers’ favorite choices

Writers are known to have a passion for books and are often influenced by certain authors and their writing. Writers will cite at an early age which book or books inspired them in reading and ultimately writing. Nor surprisingly, some of the great classics have been the choice of many established writers over time. Books such as Ulysses and The Great Gatsby or works by Tolstoy often top the list of influences. Also, writers often favor fellow writers in a particular genre. Essayists admire fellow essayists. Writers of the mystery genre admire those contemporaries as well. Raymond Chandler of the Philip Marlowe series greatly admires his fellow sleuth-writing colleague, Dashiell Hammett of the Sam Spade and The Thin Man series. Suspense novelist Mary Higgins Clark enjoys British crime writer P.D. James. Maine’s Richard Ford, Pulitzer Prize winner, was influenced by Absalom, Absalom!, regarding it as William Faulkner’s masterpiece. Joyce Carol Oates, possibly the most prolific writer around, was influenced at age nine by Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. She has claimed these volumes by Lewis Carroll convinced her to become a writer. David Eggers has been highly impressed with essayist Christopher Hitchens, regarding him as the most erudite and eloquent person he ever met. Maine’s Nicholson Baker loves the essays by E.B. White and feels they’re the best descriptions he’s read about the state of Maine. Novelist Amy Tan says her fantasy is to be arrested for a minor

Welfare reform requires comprehensive fix

Not long ago, a newspaper investigation revealed that Gov. Paul LePage’s administration had redirected millions of federal dollars designed to help children of low-income parents into other programs for seniors and the disabled. I can’t imagine anyone thinks it’s a bad idea to boost programs for our elderly neighbors and people with disabilities. Unfortunately, as the Bangor Daily News reported, the governor’s funding shift was an apparent violation of a federal law that prevents states from picking favorites, or pinning one needy population against another. The very same week that information was published, Gov. LePage also said he might cease administration of food stamps in our state, a move that would affect more than 190,000 Mainers and could cause a spike in the numbers of people who need help putting food on the table. Obviously, the fight between the governor and the federal government is escalating. However, Maine law requires the state to administer the food stamps program in cooperation with the federal government. If he did move to stop the program, the governor would again be in conflict with the law. I don’t tell you all this because I take any joy in reporting on the squabbles the governor has with the federal government. While we disagree on some policies, I believe that his heart’s in the right place in his efforts to reform welfare. We all know that our welfare system needs real reform, to make it smarter, tougher and fair. But risking access to food for kids and other legitimate folks when federal law says you can’t — that’s a problem. That’s not real reform. We all must follow the law, both federal and state, and these most recent actions and the controversies they cause only distract us from the real job at hand: fixing welfare. Earlier this year, Democrats in the Legislature proposed a comprehensive welfare reform package. We called it “Welfare that Works.” Our plan included a balanced set of reforms to

Rowling, of the Harry Potter series regards Team of Rivals (Doris Kearns Goodwin) as one of the truly great books she’s read. As a child, her favorite books included Black Beauty and Little Women. If she were stranded on a desert island she would bring the Collected Works of Shakespeare and the collected books of P.G. Wodehouse. John Grisham favors nonfiction dealing with issues of jurisprudence and regards colleague and novelist, Scott Turow as the “best lawyer-moralist.” The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck was Grisham’s greatest influence, which made him want to write. Humorist  P.J. O’Rourke’s favorite book as a child was the World Book Encyclopedia. He mentions that, “the hardest thing about being a writer is convincing your wife that lying on the sofa is work.” Lee Child, of the Jack Reacher series regards fellow novelist Dennis Lehane as “one of the best of us.” Rick Moody and Tobias Wolff are two of the more spiritual writers who believe the Grace of God has driven their inspiration.

Views from Senate

by Bill Diamond Maine State Senator improve accountability at the cash register, such as a ban on the use of welfare dollars to buy alcohol and tobacco, as well as efforts to end Maine’s one-size-fits-all system of benefits so that Mainers who were down on their luck would receive specifically tailored assistance to get them out of poverty and into jobs — nothing more, nothing less. It would have held government accountable for running lean, efficient welfare programs that actually worked to get recipients into the workforce. It would have required recipients to work and, if jobs weren’t available, would have created a transitional jobs program so that welfare recipients could earn experience and build skills that would help them prosper in the future. I was pleased to see the Legislature adopt some parts of our plan. But our welfare system didn’t get where it is overnight, and it’s going to take a lot more to get it back on track. We can’t just nibble around the edges. And we certainly can’t waste valuable time and energy with proposals and plans that fly in the face of state and federal law. Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have proven that we can work together and I know we can fix this welfare problem as long as we stay focused. As always, please feel free to contact me at or 287-1515, if you have questions or comments.

Letters $12,500 of ugliness

To The Editor: (To the Board of Selectmen.) I may not have all of my facts straight on this, but please listen to what I have to say, as I feel that it is important. I was under the assumption that we had a sign ordinance in town that prohibits the use of electronic signs. For some reason that I cannot fathom, an exception was given to McDonald’s, of all places. Hancock Lumber quickly followed with their electronic sign, then Hayes True Value Hardware put one up. I was extremely unhappy to see all of these ugly and distracting signs on Portland Road because it further ruins the quaint character of our town. Imagine my dismay when I read in The Bridgton News that selectman were considering an electronic sign for

the Old Town Hall. Imagine my absolute horror when I read that they actually voted to purchase one, for $12,500, as part of the budget proposal for “Old Town Hall Improvements.” Shame on me for not attending the meeting, where this was voted on. But shame on the board members, in whom I put my trust to make decisions that will be best for town. Sometimes, it seems to me that nobody realizes what makes Bridgton special is that it isn’t like every other place. People come here from away to experience the old town charm and character. By having fast food chain restaurants and chain stores and electronic signs, etc., we are allowing Bridgton to become a typical, tacky Anytown, USA. Wake up! Keep Bridgton special. Don’t allow an historical building to have an out-ofplace, grossly expensive and unnecessary sign plunked out front. I was recently in Lewiston and saw a beautiful old church.

What will ‘Present Age’ be? Tree Talk

By Frank Daggett No matter what we do, and whether we understand how it works or not, science or its daughter, technology, determines the food we eat, the clothes we wear, lights our homes, and transports us and the goods we use from place to place. Unquestionably, the pace of technological change is accelerating at an increasing rate. Immersed as we are in this sea of change, it’s difficult for us to describe it, and harder still to evaluate it. Historians characterize eras of human development by the most prevalent and advanced technology of the time. There was the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age, each lasting many generations. During the Age of Reason, physics, chemistry and mathematics made great leaps. Some people acted very unreasonably, too. Then came the Industrial Age. These ages lasted only a few generations. Not long ago, the modern era was described as “The Space Age”, briefly dominated by the burgeoning space program, the advent of satellite communications, orbiting weather sensors, and the race to the moon and (so it seemed) the planets and beyond. As this millennium began, “Information Age” was in vogue, as if the previous ages’ progressed without information. The term was generally accepted without reference to the quality of the information or what was being done with it. With the Internet, as with television, the rush to fill airtime and cyberspace tramples accuracy. Anyone with a computer can be a publisher on any subject, and the checks and balances of having to convince others of the value of their information fade away. Maybe “The Mis-Information Age” is more apt. Perhaps future generations will look back at us and their assessment will be that we just didn’t have much information about what really mattered, or worse, just didn’t make effective use of what we had. Maybe that feeling is implicit in the current term “Digital Age,” which makes no judgment about information value but merely recognizes the omnipresence of devices handling the digits 0 and 1, not only to make information available at our fingertips (or is it because we manipulate these devices by the digits on our hands?).


(Continued from Page 1D) noticed an electronic sign out front, advertising church events. Frankly, it made me ill. Is this where we are headed? Save that $12,500 for the next time the Old Town Hall furnace needs to be fixed. And please keep our town’s character in mind when making important decisions in the future. Julia Marino Bridgton

Ending the war

Today could be the Pharmaceutical Age. Drugs are everywhere, used preventatively in vaccines, to restore health after disease or injury, to control allergies, to mitigate the physical effects of genetic predispositions, lifestyle, or aging, to modify psychological responses to life’s challenges, and to produce and preserve food. How will the future evaluate the Green Revolution, which, in part through the use of pharmaceuticals, growth hormones and genetic modification, staved off famine for billions but also created new health issues that in turn had to be treated with pharmaceuticals? The Plastic Age could likewise characterize us. Ubiquitous in our material culture, plastic is in everything from nylon clothing to household goods to Kevlar body armor to building materials and vehicles of all kinds. Will future historians classify our time with one of these names, or will they scratch their heads wondering why, when so many medical breakthroughs were within reach, we chose to eliminate nature’s storehouses of healing drugs by deforesting the tropics? Will they be amazed that, in this century, the weight of plastic in the ocean surpassed that of fish? That to transport ourselves in individual metal and plastic containers which last only a decade, we burned petroleum rather than fashion it into infinitely recyclable and highly durable plastics, that we made those with poisons and polluted our soil, water, air and even our own bodies? Will the moniker for our time be a bad pun on our profligate wastage? a suicide plane. Our ship took it in tow until repairs could be made. The harbor in Okinawa was filled with ships of all kinds, and at night the sky was ablaze with tracers and shell bursts — quite the fireworks display! You could actually see the shells from the battlewagons flying to their target on the beach and exploding. It was the most gruesome, awesome sight I have ever seen.

Lesson from Brexit

To The Editor: Brexit doesn’t just have implications in foreign markets; it has a very pertinent lesson for Americans. Those who talk about the UK needing EU markets miss the entire point of the referendum. During the debates, pro-Brexit politicians such as MEP Daniel Hannan advocated free trade agreements with the EU if they should leave.

Even after the referendum MEP Nigel Farage, arguably the leader of the Brexit movement, gave a speech to the EU arguing that they should continue to trade with the UK after his nation leaves. So if Brexit isn’t about trade agreements, what is it about and how does this apply to us? If I were to say the United States should be a democratic institution with free speech, hardly anyone would give an argument to the statement. If, however, I said citizens should or should not need an ID to vote and groups such as documentary company Citizens United should or should not be able to espouse views prior to an election, Americans would be less likely to stand united. It’s not just a key to PR that vague statements unite more people; it’s a fact of political institutions such as the EU or the USA. That’s why our government was given a tiered framework that was meant to be applied more specifically in localities and broadly on the federal level. It’s no coin-

The ‘Point System’

By Robert Fogg Licensed arborist In this column, I would like to focus on tree cutting/ pruning in the 0 to 100-foot shoreland zone, of towns that have adopted the newest state tree-cutting rules. In this area, we use the “point system” to help us determine what, if any, cutting is allowed. We start by mapping and gridding the shorefront off into sections, and then we measure and map the existing trees. The measurement must be made at 4½ feet above ground level (diameter at breast height or DBH). Each tree is given a point designation, based on its size (in general, the larger the tree, the higher the point value). We must maintain a minimum of 24 points before any surplus trees/points may be removed. To discourage the removal of only the small trees, no more than half of the 24 points, in each grid section, may come from trees that are 12-inch diameter or larger. Trees that are dead, dying or dangerous (as determined by a licensed arborist) are usually allowed to be removed, but often times, if this takes a grid section below the minimum required points, new small trees will be required to be planted to take their place, unless new growth is present. Any tree that is smaller than two inches in diameter (DBH), but taller than three feet is considered a sapling. A minimum number of saplings must be left, if possible, in each grid section. Any vegetation that is three feet tall or shorter is considered ground cover. No ground cover is allowed to be removed except for one six-foot wide winding path to the water. A tree may not be stripped of live limbs any higher than the lowest third of its height. Dead limbs are okay to remove at any height. The actual shoreland zone goes back a total of 250 feet from the water, but the first 100 feet is the most critical and the most heavily protected. No more than 40% of the basal area of trees over four inches DBH may be removed from the entire 250-foot shoreland zone in any 10-year period. There are also limits to the size of cleared openings that can be created in both the 0 to 100-foot zone and the 100 to 250-foot zones.   Fines for violations can be substantial. Each town has a code enforcement officer that is in charge of enforcing the tree-cutting rules. Some towns now require a permit for any shoreland zone tree cutting. If you have questions, you should contact your town code enforcement officer and/or a competent arborist. Keep in mind that you are ultimately responsible for whatever cutting is done, so it pays to know the rules and/or work with an arborist that you trust completely to stay within the rules. After all, the rules are in place to help keep our lakes and streams clean, which is a good thing. Robert Fogg is general manager of Q-Team Tree Service in Naples and is also a licensed arborist. He can be reached at cidence that we see greater division in Americans as we apply greater federal powers because it leaves more Americans feeling unheard in their own government. When we allow other states to pursue the education, healthcare, etc. they feel best represents them, there is a

greater likelihood that the amount of people who are unhappy with their government’s application, and their fellow voters, will be minimized thanks to a state-bystate consensus of the majority. If, however, the federal government tells us this is LETTERS, Page 3D

Stirring the misery of war

Remnant defensive fortifications are evident all over the approaches to Portland Harbor in Maine. Those from the 19th century like Fort Gorges, Fort Preble, and Fort Scammell are mostly granite. Others from the 20th century are concrete. All were constructed after the British bombarded Portland in 1775. That they’ve never been used should not be seen as a waste of the money spent building them. They accomplished their purpose just by being there because, as Plato observed 25 centuries ago, the best way to preserve peace is prepare for war. Would Portland have been attacked again if the defenses were not there? Probably, though no one can say for sure. While my father and his brothers fought in WWII, I don’t know of any other McLaughlin ancestors in combat. I’m sure there were going way back in Ireland, but I don’t know specifics. Ever since finding out my surname, McLaughlin, translated from Gaelic, means “of the Vikings,” I’ve been consuming information about those notorious raiders. For a thousand years, they were known exclusively as savage warriors, plunderers and rapists until relatively recent historical revisionist efforts to soften their image — probably because so many prominent people in western Europe had, like me, discovered they had a few Viking ancestors. Their savage reputation doesn’t bother me though, especially after learning of notorious exploits by McLaughlins in modern times, like those of the McLaughlin Brothers Gang in Charlestown who were rivals to Whitey Bulger’s Winter Hill Gang. “The Vikings” series on the History Channel eschews such revisionism, showing Ragnar Lothbrok and company in their ferocious glory. It’s very popular, having recently been renewed for its fifth season. Bernard Cornwell’s eight-book series “The Saxon Tales” is also quite popular and covers much of the same Viking history The History Channel does. The BBC has recently dramatized “The Last Kingdom” which is book one by Cornwell, who bases much of it on one of the few written accounts of that period: “The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle,” which was begun by King Alfred in the 9th cenWAR, Page 6D



New family on the lake A couple of weeks ago, we were having our morning tea, looking out the window toward the lake, when we heard a loon’s alarm call. Sometimes, it is a false alarm, such as a small plane overhead, but that morning there was no plane. An adult bald eagle was gliding over the water at treetop level, its bright white head and tail gleaming in the early morning sunlight. The loon had good reason to be worried by the sight. Bald eagles are predators, who typically make their living by snatching fish from the surface of the water, but who will hunt water birds when the opportunity presents itself. Although eagles do not usually prey on healthy adult loons, who can dive and swim a long distance underwater to escape, the loon’s alarm warned the entire neighborhood that a predator was on the scene. As news of the eagle spread to every living creature within earshot, it did not take long for the first crow to fly out from the woods to find out what was going on. It circled over the cove cawing loudly, and in a moment another crow appeared, followed by another, and then another. Soon, half a dozen crows could be seen and heard as they circled over the point, over the tall pines, and over the water. By then, the eagle had lost the element of surprise. It turned and flew up the lake, and the crows returned to whatever they had been doing before they heard the alarm. Thinking the excitement was over, we put down our binoculars, picked up our tea mugs, and resumed our conversation, but then the loon called again, and we looked up to see that the eagle had returned. This time, it flew in tight circles over the cove and then down to the surface of the water, where it reached out its talons and snatched up a dead fish we had seen floating on the surface. Carrying the fish in its talons, the big bird flew out of sight, escorted by a few alert crows. Once more, the crows and the loon quieted down. Since that morning, the situation on our lake has changed considerably with the birth of two loon chicks. Shortly after the chicks hatch, the parents take them into the water, where

Bird Watch by Jean Preis BN Columnist

they feed and guard them. The chicks are tiny, black and covered with soft fluffy down feathers. In the water, the down feathers become waterlogged and heavy, so the chicks climb up onto the parent’s back to get warm and dry. Over the next weeks, new feathers begin to grow in, and although the chicks can dive for a few seconds they are still quite vulnerable. Loons are excellent parents, and as the chicks get bigger the parents will teach them to catch their own fish, and to recognize dangers such as the eagle. Humans can also be dangerous to loons, but there are things we can do to help a loon family. The chicks can be hard to see on the water, especially if there are any waves on the surface, and they cannot dive deeply or swim fast enough to escape an oncoming motorboat. A loon chick hit by a boat is likely to be killed. Even a well-meaning, curious person can stress a loon family by getting too close, or by following them to take photos. If a loon is keeping an eye on a boat drifting quietly nearby it may fail to notice a predator or some other danger. Loons, who are slowly swimming away from an observer, are trying to establish a safer distance, and a loon who calls, or rises up in the water, is warning us to back off. Loons produce only one or two chicks a year, and raise them during July and August, when our lakes are very busy. Until October, when the chicks will be able to fly, we can help loon families by looking out for them, keeping our distance, and giving the chicks a chance to grow up.

vote was about maintaining national sovereignty because the British people have very different views about the specifics the EU was attempting to mandate in governance. Anti-Brexit Prime Minister David Cameron decided to hold the referendum because the EU was attempting to further shrink the special exceptions the UK had under the EU as a partial member. With an election cycle featur-

ing Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Gary Johnson this year, Americans would do well to ask: What if the person I don’t want wins? With greater federal powers, it means the winning president and majority Congress can impose their view of America over a greater number of Americans. With devolved powers, it means that the impact of such a loss would be much less to you.

ported me for running for a full seat on the planning board. It was a great turnout on June 14 and very close. Congratulations to all who stepped up to the plate to run. I will say being an alternate board member board is with great pride and continued enthusiasm. I really enjoy updating local ordinances, writing new ordinances and I take pride working with the town’s staff and other board members. I find myself spending hours reading policies, the new comprehensive plan and the always-changing site plan review ordinances; and attending other community meetings and talking to local residents and businesses. Everyone’s passion is different in life. My passion is gardening, helping run the family business and writing. I’ve published one book and working on another. My grandfather was a selectman for the Town of Buxton for 20 years, so politics runs through the veins. Becoming involved with our town’s politics is a passion. My promise to all, I shall continue my two-year term as an alternate member continuing to work hard on local ordinances and working with all members of Bridgton’s Planning Board. After the two-year term, I will see what other door opens.  The people I have met

To The Editor: Can we put the number 50 in a comparison list while asking ourselves the following questions? How many past and current veterans of our armed forces have died while being on the waiting list to receive medical assistance/treatment they were promised? How many veterans are currently listed as homeless upon returning from active duty? How many active duty soldiers (male and female) have committed suicide while serving in the various conflicts in the Middle East? How many (especially those suffering from PTSD) have committed suicide after returning home? How many are actually receiving any of the support services they were promised? How many of these tragically tortured, overlooked souls have been involved in any of our burgeoning list of mass murder incidents here in America? How many innocent people

were they ordered to kill indiscriminately while on duty in the Middle East? Most of them would respectfully decline to answer that question. Any guesses why? How many of them never came home from their voluntary service to protect their fellow Americans? I’d be really interested to learn how many of the dead and injured victims in the Orlando horror episode were either on leave from active duty in our military organizations or veterans of any type of military service especially in the Middle East. Probably not many because it takes added courage for folks who prefer same sex long-term partner commitments to even consider serving in our military, where they are met with the same distain and sometimes violent intimidation as in many social settings here in America. How many lives were sacrificed during our 1860s-era, relatively short Civil War? Most of the dead victims from both the Northern and the Southern armies died of either starvation or diseases their bodies were to weak to overcome. Once again, promises probably never intended to be kept. How long might that horrifying part of our history gone on if any foreign nations had taken sides and sent military assistance? Perhaps one reason they remained neutral may have been the stated primary reason for that war was to abolish slavery. What is the history of European migration to African nations? They had no respect for the rights of the African cultures or for the Black “heathen, less than human,” original occupiers of the African continent. Slavery was considered a means of guiding and “saving” individuals of lesser intelligence, while increasing the profit margins of the wealthy investors from Europe, in particular. This all has a familiar ring to it for me. Has anyone noticed the similarities to our current military involvements? Does it occur to anyone that we often try to gloss over pursuit of economic selfinterest with claims of generously attempting to assist and protect large numbers of innocent, often “ignorant” people especially in trading partner countries? Our chickens have finally come home to roost. How long can we convince ourselves we are blameless in the prolonged conflicts that are causing so many people to flee seeming-

ly endless horror? So much for claiming to have all the right answers before we even consider what the real questions are! “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” Can we rebuild our selfrespect and offer all our fellow men/women equal access to that same respect? It may depend on how we define respect. Even the improbable can be possible. Serena Williams was defeated at the French Open and the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship.

The ‘Old Wagoner’

To The Editor: Much of what I write is reactive; I see something that is antithetical to my beliefs, and I react. Others times – not often enough – I can write laudatory, even exuberant letters, such as my delight when Harriet Tubman, the former slave, underground railroad “conductor,” and abolitionist, was chosen as the first woman to appear on our currency (“And the winner is…” April 28, 2016). This time, I can “exult” over my favorite Revolutionary War hero, Daniel Morgan. The self-styled “Old Wagoner” was born on July 6, 1736, 280 years ago, and distinguished himself throughout the Revolutionary era, with his signature moment at the Cowpens, S.C. on Jan. 17, 1781. He started out as a teamster driving a supply wagon in the ill-fated 1755 attempt by the British under General Edward Braddock to take Fort Duquesne, the French fort in western Pennsylvania. He later led a company of Virginia riflemen to Boston in 1775; he participated in the 1775 attempt to take Québec; his regiment participated in the defeat of the British at Saratoga in 1777; he became a brigadier general in 1780, and subsequently engineered the defeat of the British at the Battle of Cowpens. This battle deserves detailed study. In brief, though, Morgan magnificently utilized his available forces in designing a trap that drew in the aggressive British commander, the redoubtable Lieut. Col. Banastre Tarleton, enabling the American forces to achieve every commander’s dream, a “double envelopment,” resulting in comLETTERS, Page 6D

(Continued from Page 1D) tradition and available funds, not promises carved in granite. Here’s the rub: Americans are loath to pay taxes, no matter what their payments purchase. Many dead-beat citizens think that taxes nourish an inefficient, wasteful and possibly corrupt bureaucracy. Of course, some folks in every community are, in fact, hard pressed to come up with money to pay their tax bill and deserve relief. But not everybody is in that condition. Some among us are woefully under-taxed. Well, they’re probably not exactly among us. More likely they are comfortably lodged in a metropolis in a penthouse high — literally and figuratively — above us. Which brings me to an Op-Ed article Bernie Sanders wrote in the New York Times. It was for him familiar ground, all about how the top 1% of our citizens own more wealth than the bottom 90%. How 58% of all new money earned goes to the top 1%. Plainly, he concluded, the “global economy is not working for the majority of people in our country.” Do you suppose if these super rich paid a higher portion of their income to the government it might filter down so that bereft communities could afford properly-staffed emergency services? (See last paragraph.) One more article I might mention: a study of the place of the military in our society by James Fallows in The Atlantic. Leave aside the discussion of how uniformed personnel relate to civilians. For my purposes the shocking tale of how procurements are handled by the (so-called) system caught me up. Cost overruns seem to be beyond the capacity of purchasing officers to manage. Happily for them, the companies need not worry too much: Defense equipment manufacturers are located in almost every district in the country so that members of Congress are grateful and willingly support any hardware buys, regardless of the (excessive) cost, if they bring jobs locally. Why, we might ask, with no major conflict in prospect do we need so much sophisticated stuff, especially high performance aircraft? Why can’t some of the procurement funds be diverted to civilian needs? The U.S. 2016 defense budget ($596 billion) is larger than the outlays of the next seven countries combined. Buried in the fine print, our budget probably contains quite a few surplus ambulances and trained fire and rescue personnel. But the Congress listens more intently to callers who kick in big bucks for reelection campaigns than to ordinary voters who can’t manage to get it together to finance a fire department or an ambulance service. What the country needs are leaders willing to risk popularity by explaining to citizens the importance of paying fair and progressive taxes. There’s no free lunch in either the private or public realms. Henry Precht is a retired Foreign Service Officer.

Sam B. Stern

Jonathan A. Kauffman

Mark A. Paradis

Samson Bertram Stern, recently of Woods Pond in Bridgton and Chevy Chase, Md., passed away at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Md. on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, after 99 blessed years. His son, Andrew, was at his side. Born in Indiana in 1917, the family soon settled in Biddeford, where Sam lived until he was 17 and then moved to Washington, D.C. He enlisted in the Army in World War II, and after the war, he built an office furniture business that employed hundreds and had stores in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Sam bought a house on Woods Pond with his beloved, late wife, Frances in 1977. He cherished the time he spent there with his family and friends and all the friends he made in the Town of Bridgton. He was the unofficial “Mayor of Woods Pond.” Sam loved to fish and was a fierce defender of Woods Pond, contributing generously and repeatedly to a boat washing station, water quality testing, and pollution control efforts on the lake. He is survived by his three sons, Andrew, Jeffrey and Ross; four grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Sam loved Bridgton and the Lake Region and had many friends throughout the area. He loved to entertain and was always quick with an amusing anecdote. Lucid to the end, Sam passed quickly and peacefully. Interment took place Thursday, June 30, at B’Nai Tzedek in Potomac, Md., followed by interment at King David Memorial Gardens, Falls Church, Va., and a celebration of life at Columbia Country Club in Chevy Chase, Md. Memorial contributions may be made in his name to the charity of your choice. May his memory be a blessing. Condolences may be made at

BOULDER CITY, NEV. — Mark Alfred Paradis, 63, formerly of Naples, passed away on June 11, 2016, at Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas, Nev. He was born in Maine on Nov. 19, 1953. He joined the Air Force National Guard on July 16, 1972, and was released as staff sergeant with an honorable discharge on May 29, 1979. He enjoyed outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, fourwheeling and cookouts with friends and family. He cherished time with his family and friends. He always welcomed people in and treated them like family, regardless of their story. He was an exceptional and selfless man and will continue to be in our hearts. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was predeceased by his stepfather, who raised him, Robert Herrick; and sister Denise (Paradis) Maurais. He is survived by his mother, Constance Herrick; his brothers, David Herrick and Raymond Paradis; his sister, Claudette (Paradis) Charest; his wife, Cora Paradis; his children, Joe Paradis, Jaimie Paradis and Chris Paradis; and nine grandchildren.

Irene R. Fenderson

SOUTH CASCO — Robert J Morin, 69, passed away on July 3, 2016, following complications with Parkinsonism. Bob was born in Portland, on June 13, 1947, to Reynold and Stacia Morin. He attended local schools and in 1966 he enlisted in the Navy, where he proudly served for four years including two tours in Vietnam and received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and a Bronze Star. While in the Navy he met Judy, the love of his life, on a blind date. They were married in 1970 and began their life together in Buxton, where they built their first home and welcomed their first child. A few years later they moved to South Casco, where they spent the next 40 years together and welcomed their second child. Bob was a man with many skills but for his career he concentrated his talents building and repairing torque converters. He enjoyed spending time with his family, volunteering for the Casco Fire Department, at Casco Days, and local schools. When he was well Bob enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening and going to camp. He was predeceased by his parents. He leaves behind his wife of 46 years Judy; his daughters Tracy and Jen; his sisters Linda, Earlene, Sandy, Kathy, Sherry; and brother Rick. He also leaves behind very special brothers-in-law Butch and Michael; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins, and close friends.

Writers’ favorite choices to read

(Continued from Page 1D) they let their writing flow and allow their narratives to go into unchartered waters. They’ve also been greatly influenced by the writings of Flannery O’Connor. Isabel Allende has regarded Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez as the influence of her desire to become a writer. Also, Salman Rushdie, in an obituary to Marquez, regarded him as one of the greatest of authors worldwide. The New York Times runs a series of author interviews asking each author, who they’d like to meet either past or present. Overwhelmingly, Shakespeare is the most chosen. Others selected include John Steinbeck, James Joyce and Kurt Vonnegut. Some authors are often regarded as “Writers’ Writers” — highly esteemed writers who are not necessarily popular or that well known but highly regarded by fellow writers such as James Portis (True Grit), Raymond Carver (poet and author of short stories), James Salter (pilot and novelist) and Alice Munro (Nobel Laureate and Canadian author of short stories). I should add Gerry Boyle, who recently gave a talk at Bridgton Library, was influenced by John D. MacDonald and Robert Parker. For a good Maine mystery, Boyle satisfies. (My choice.) Peter Bollen of Bridgton writes an occasional column for The Bridgton News dedicated to books and authors including reviews and news of the book trade. The author welcomes comments and suggestions.

forces. The defeat put a serious crimp in the British “Southern Strategy,” which played out to the final act, the surrender of Cornwallis nine months later at Yorktown, Oct. 19, 1781. What kind of man was Daniel Morgan? Don Higginbotham, in the Preface to his biography of Morgan, says: “Morgan joked, clowned, loved rum, enjoyed cards, took a common-law wife, and liked Indian attire.” He also struck a British officer, for which he was “severely beaten;” he “was wounded and almost tomahawked.” Daniel Morgan: American hero.

Critical moments

To The Editor: “By the rude bridge that arched the flood, their flag to April’s breeze unfurled, here once the embattled farmers stood, and fired the shot heard round the world.” So reads the first stanza of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous poem, Concord Hymn. It seems an

appropriate way to begin a letter on Fourth of July week. Emerson’s signature phrase, “the shot heard round the world,” was an unforgettable way to describe a critical moment in human history, viewed from a half-century after the fact. It was April 19, 1775, when a group of ordinary people chose to defy the will of the British Crown, the most powerful military and economic force on earth. Days like that have occurred throughout human history. Historians call them “trigger events,” and their importance usually becomes clear only years after they happen. For example, on June 28, 1914, the assassination in Sarajevo, Serbia, of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, triggered World War I, the aftereffects of which we’re still dealing with today. If I were a betting man, I’d bet tons of money that another “shot heard round the world” was just fired on June 23, when Great Britain voted to leave the European Union. People still living 50 years from today will look back on that vote as a trigger event that shifted the tectonic plates of world history. As to what direction those plates will shift, and how massive the resulting earthquake will be, that is anyone’s guess. The Brexit vote will trigger enormous change in the world, but I wouldn’t bet a penny on what that change

hands of the radical Islamic terrorist group Isis, Barack Obama will not waver from his ridiculous denial that the world and, particularly, the United States are locked in a life and death struggle with a significant segment of the Muslim population. Despite the horrific atrocities committed by avowed fanatical Muslim adherents, who profusely praised Allah as they methodically mowed down unarmed innocent Americans who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, in Fort Hood, San Bernardino, Orlando and numerous other locations, Obama still cannot bring himself to utter the words “Islamic terrorism.” One has to wonder why? The carnage that has been wreaked on innocent civilians, as well as police and military members worldwide for years now, could have and should have been addressed a long time ago. America, being far and away the greatest military power the world has ever seen and the undisputed leader of the free world should be taking the lead in rallying our allies in a massive effort to rid civilization of this threat to our very survival once and for all. Obama, at the very least, could have rendered strong To The Editor: moral support in 2009 for No matter how many bod- the youth of Iran when ies continue to pile up at the LETTERS, Page 8D will look like. This could be an event like Concord Bridge, leading to a world far better than anything humans yet have known. It also could be like Sarajevo, leading to a world in which human civilization lies in smoking ruins. Neither the folks in Concord nor the assassin in Sarajevo had any idea what massive forces they were unleashing. Likewise, neither did the 52% of Brits who voted to leave the EU. Brexit was the first crack in the corrupt system of globalized capitalism that is sucking the life out of the world to benefit just a handful of super-rich oligarchs. Those oligarchs are now on notice. They have to decide whether they will reform their globalized machine peacefully or risk seeing it swept away by a massive revolt of ordinary people. They can choose to go out with a bang or a whimper, but out they will go. Anyone who thinks June 23, 2016 won’t go into the history books, think again. It will, for good or for ill. Rev. Robert Plaisted Bridgton

Life and death struggle

Stirring the misery of war

(Continued from Page 3D) tury. I’m grateful to Cornwell for fashioning historical novels out of them, thereby making it more enjoyable to learn about that time and I’ll trust his judgment about how best to characterize the Vikings. Viking religion sanctioned their savagery, not unlike the way Islam encourages similar depredations by the likes of ISIS today. By all accounts, the 9th century was a brutal time in the British Isles as Ireland suffered the same ravages as the Anglo-Saxons, and Britons, and the Scots. There were other invasions prior to those by Vikings, but I’ve not studied them. During our two-week tour of Greece a couple of years ago, I learned that my wife’s ancestors endured many battles with invaders too numerous to count. All my first-hand and second-hand studies of the histories of every time and place indicate that the world hasn’t changed in the last few millennia — and won’t likely improve in the foreseeable future. It’s the same lesson boys in my neighborhood learned early: being ready to fight at all times will reduce the number of occasions when you’ll actually have to. My wife often points out that it’s the male of the species who stirs the misery of war throughout human history, and I cannot dispute that. It would certainly be better if we could find more peaceful ways to settle disputes, and occasionally we can work things out by negotiation. The recent vote by British citizens for inde-

pendence from the European Union will likely accomplish a nonviolent exit, for example. When we notified the British on the Fourth of July, 1776 that we wanted independence, however, a war was necessary before we could successfully negotiate the Treaty of Paris and actually get it. When the American south wanted independence in 1861, an even more brutal war ensued. After Pearl Harbor was attacked, we demanded unconditional surrender of both the Japanese and their German allies before we would agree to stop killing them. Only then did we obtain a lasting peace. Is it possible to negotiate with enemies like al Qaida and ISIS who are killing Americans today? Clearly not. The only way to bring that to an end is to thoroughly destroy them and all other radical Muslims, the sooner the better. That’s what Thomas Jefferson did two centuries ago. He sent the Marines to Tripoli to kill Muslim pirates rather than pay tribute the way his predecessor, John Adams did. There’s no other way. I wish there were, but there simply isn’t. As I tell my wife, men today may wish they never have to tap their innate capacity for combat, but that’s not possible when other men threaten their families, their freedom, and their way of life. And on it goes. Tom McLaughlin of Lovell is a retired middle school U.S. History teacher.

(Continued from Page 6D) they appeared to be gaining ground in their attempt to rest control from the ruthless Islamic mullahs that rule Iran with an iron fist and brutally suppress any efforts to breathe the fresh air of freedom amongst the beleaguered Iranian people. Instead, Obama threw his support behind the clerics and any hope of democracy for the oppressed people of Iran died on the vine. Much of the catastrophic loss of life in Syria can also be laid at the feet of Barack Obama. When the despotic dictator Assad started butchering his people en masse, Obama drew a red line in the sand and assured the world that if Assad crossed that line and used chemical

weapons on his own people that America would respond with massive military force. We now know that Obama and the rest of the free world stood idly by as hundreds of thousands of Syrian people were slaughtered in their beds and their blood is on our hands. Shame on us for not acting to prevent this devastation when we possess the military might to eradicate this monster and his thugs with an overwhelming application of power. Millions of people have been forced from their homes and thousands have died tragic deaths at sea, trying to flee across the Mediterranean to a safe haven in Europe because of the brutal carnage in much of Africa and the Middle East. Because of Barack Obama’s utter incompetence and gross disregard

for human life, the world’s numerous tyrants have a free pass to butcher people at will. History will not judge us kindly because of our refusal to stop the savagery when we had the ability to do so. We learned nothing from the horrors of World War II, when tens of millions died because the world’s major allied powers made no effort to stop Hitler in his tracks when it became painfully obvious that he was out to conquer and enslave the world. The Nazi war machine could have been destroyed in 1936 when Germany first started invading other nations, but politicians buried their heads in the sand, hoping that the Nazi madman would miraculously disappear. He didn’t and the world paid a dreadful price for their abject failure to

confront evil. We are facing a similar situation today and we appear to be hell-bent on repeating the same mistake that brought unthinkable horror to much of the world during the World War II. None of us want to see young men and women lose their lives in battle, but as we have sadly learned over the long and often painful history of this wonderful nation, sometimes war is necessary in order to ensure the survival of our country. May God grant us the wisdom to do the right things and protect our own people and, at the same time, also to save millions of our fellow human beings from misery and almost certain death. I pray that we will find it in our hearts to make the right decision. History and God will judge us accordingly. Robert M. Howe Jr. Bridgton

To The Editor: Two weeks ago, Bridgton’s voters approved

Question 1 — giving the Sewer Commissioner permission to re-allocate and award some 7,000 gallons of sewerage on June 15. A week before the vote, on June 8 at 6:15 p.m., I heard Mr. Kidder agree to the proposition in person at a meeting of the Wastewater Committee. Last night, at the Bridgton Planning Board meeting, I wasn’t the only resident surprised to learn that before Mr. Kidder can make any allocations yet another study of our existing system needs to be completed so “numbers can be firmed up.” Kidder’s letter was directed at William Holmes, owner of the Standard Gastropub, who wants 250 more gallons so he can add a deck onto his Main Street restaurant for takeout customers to use when the weather is compatible. “When will the study be complete?” asked Steve Collins, board chairman. “Probably sometime this month. Or certainly in August,” replied Mr. Baker, Bridgton’s CEO. Mr. Holmes, making his second appearance before the board, was understandably upset. He went home empty-handed from the last meeting due to, “A gross administrative blunder,” admitted Collins.  For one entire year, all we heard from every town official is that if the voters didn’t approve Question 1 economic development would halt and the sky would most certainly fall on Bridgton. Well it has — right on the Standard Gastropub! Mr. Holmes, who put his name on the list for any new sewer allocations three years ago, certainly qualifies for an increased sewer allotment if anyone does. And when this next study is completed what then? Will the allocations be made? Will there be more foot-dragging? Just one more study, perhaps? Bridgton’s officials must take responsibility for this ridiculous and deplorable state of affairs. Consider how this makes the town look in the very eyes of those developers you so wanted to impress with a “yes” vote.  George Bradt Bridgton
