Concerns about rental units aired By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer Should the Bridgton Board of Selectmen appoint a committee to research and craft regulations that residents could enact to require local landlords to allow inspections of their rental properties? The Bridgton Planning Board heard a presentation this week from a landlord regarding his concerns about “the conditions of some rental units in Bridgton and the lack of enforceable standards.” “There are standards which must be met if landlords are renting to state-assisted tenants,” Tony Mallon said, in his letter to the planning board that he read aloud July 10. “The standards are reasonable and enforceable. Inspections are called for prior to allowing tenants to occupy the rental units, and on an annual basis after that.” “Something needs to be done” Mallon, who said he primarily owns rental properties in Naples, stated, “Something needs to be done. I, as a landlord for more years than I care to admit to, have looked at multifamily buildings in Bridgton and have been horrified at the conditions some families are living in.”

“At one point, I spoke to then Police Chief Dave Lyons and the then fire chief about my concerns,” Mallon said further. “It was after a woman who, in order to be removed to the hospital, had to be taken out a third floor window, once the window was removed. Everybody understood the concern, everybody was busy and nothing changed.” Mallon then told the planning board members he believes “the quality (of rental units in Bridgton) is about as bad as it gets and the conditions for people living in them is dangerous.” “I don’t like people (landlords) who get away with stacking people in these (apartment) buildings,” Mallon said. He noted that, due to the poor conditions at some of the rental properties in Bridgton, “If something does happen in one of these buildings, it could come back on the town.” Saying the enforcement of CAUSEWAY ART — An artist attracted some attention along the Naples Causeway from passerbys as he painted a scene (De Busk Photo) Section 8 regulations was “taken — the site of the seaplane ticket area. over by the State of Maine (Housing Authority) on June 1,” Mallon held up a booklet entitled “A Good Place to Live” put out by HUD that details the required elements a rental unit must have By Gail Geraghty Lopez referred to the board’s McHatton remained unde- provided the town’s insurance in order to pass inspection, as terred, saying he is taking each for many years, and has been Staff Writer vote, at their previous meetwell as what a tenant should conbid process on a case-by-case quite responsive to the town’s It’s only been a few weeks ing, to award the bid for insursider when looking for a unit.

‘Local preference’ sparks debate


Brewery proposal tabled to August By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer The Bridgton Planning Board has once again tabled the application for the Mount Henry Brewing Company proposed for Portland Road — this time until its August meeting. At their July 10 meeting, Planning Board Chairman Steve Collins announced that the board had received an e-mail from applicants Robert Prindall and Angela Roux saying, “they will not be able to present the storm water survey” this month that the board had requested in order for them to satisfy requirements of the Site Plan Review Ordinance regarding stormwater runoff and any potential groundwater pollution. “They hope to have it presented at the August planning

board meeting,” said Collins, which will be held Aug. 7. So, the planning board unanimously approved a motion to take the Mount Henry Brewing Company application “off the table” and place it on their August agenda. However, planning board member Dee Miller asked what would happen if the applicants don’t bring the requested information to the board’s August and/or September meetings. Asked Miller, “How long does it take? I don’t think it (the application process) should last forever.” Planning Board member Brian Thomas said he had been told there is a possibility the brewery application may be withdrawn if the sale of the BREWERY, Page A

Hacker’s Hill fund drive picks up steam

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO – Does it ever seem like music should accompany the sunset? What chords would the ear hear if there were sounds to go with the setting sun? This evening, viewing the sunset from Hacker’s Hill in Casco could be music to the ears. Tonight, the folk music style of the band Swampdonkeys will keep beat to the final movements of the sun in the west. The Acoustic Sunset runs from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. The fee for attending the fundraiser is $10 for adults and $5 for children. This event is the first in several summertime fundraisers to be hosted by Loon Echo Land Trust (LELT) as it embarks on a year-long goal to raise the remaining $150,000 to pay the mortgage on the Hacker’s Hill land purchase. According to LELT Executive

Director Carrie Walia, “We have through the summer of 2013 to raise $150,000. Most of that money will go to pay off the mortgage, any balances on the purchase, and toward the endowment to care for property,” Walia said. The purchase cost of the 27-acre tract on Hacker’s Hill is $700,000; an additional $100,000 is required for a perpetual care endowment, she said. Most recently, the Nine Wicket Foundation in Portland awarded a $5,000 grant to the Hacker’s Hill Campaign and local businesses and summer residents continue to make contributions, Walia said. So, the month of July kicks off another phase of fund raising. This Saturday, a hands-on geology lesson will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. The Geology HACKER’S, Page A

since Bob McHatton Jr. returned to local politics in Bridgton, but already he’s stirred up the pot by his strong belief that local businesses should be favored even when they’re not the lowest bidder, as long as the bids are close in price. At Tuesday’s meeting of the oard of selectmen, Mark Lopez challenged that thinking, suggesting that such a stance sets a precedent that will force selectmen to find ways to defend against charges of cronyism.

The bids were $45,092 from Chalmers, and $42,691 from MMA. “The policies are substantially similar,” and at a time when the mil rate has increased by 40 cents, a $2,300 difference should not be “marginalized” in favor of buying locally, said Lopez.

basis, on its own merit, and believes that Chalmers more than makes up for the difference in terms of its contribution to the local tax base, the number of people it employs and the charitable funding it provides to the local community. “When I was elected, one of my main goals as selectman is trying to help local businesses,” McHatton said. Selectman Woody Woodward agreed, saying it is reasonable to factor in the fact that Chalmers has

needs. Chairman Paul Hoyt said he felt MMA’s lower bid should be honored, because “$2,300 is a lot of money.” In the end, the vote was 32 in favor of Chalmers, with Hoyt and Selectman Doug Taft opposed. Sewer Committee member Glen “Bear” Zaidman joined Lopez in questioning the decision, pointing out that Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz told his committee that favoring PREFERENCE, Page A

Bridgton beavers’ saga continues

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer A grand experiment in coexistence with beavers began last weekend when a few passionate folks waded knee-deep in muck to modify the dam the beavers created behind the Bridgton Post Office on Elm Street. The dam was causing flooding in the post office’s parking lot, and raised water levels well above what’s typical for a large expanse of downtown wetland bounded by Elm, Park and Nulty Streets and the town’s Wayside Avenue leach field. Regional Wildlife Biologist Scott Lindsay of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife believes it’s one or two young beavers at work, possibly the same ones that built the lodge and dam just a short distance away at Shorey Park, where Highland Lake meets

Stevens Brook. Resident Lega Medcalf, who’s been championing the beavers’ cause, called Lindsay for advice about the

problem, and he put her in contact with Richard Hesslein of Brownfield, who has worked on beaver modification efforts

for years. Together, they walked the perimeter of the wetland around Corn Shop Brook late last week. To trap or not to trap Lindsay favored trapping and relocating the beavers, given the amount of development in the area. It’s unlikely the beavers would stick around, he said, if humans start messing around with what they’ve built. They couldn’t find any evidence of a lodge, but with such a large wetland, Lindsay said it’s likely they’re just laying low for now, planning their next move. “They like to raise the water level up so they can feed on the trees, because they don’t like to go more than 20 feet from water,” he said. If there’s too much water drainage or other disturbance to the habitat they’ve created, it could drive BEAVER, Page A

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer LOVELL — A 15-year-old girl from Texas, whose leg was severed above the ankle in a boating accident on Kezar Lake Tuesday afternoon, was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The teenage girl was sitting in the bow of a powerboat, operated by her father, that was towing a 13-year-old boy on a tube when the accident happened, according to Corporal John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service. “At about 2:45 this after-

noon, a boat crash occurred that injured at least two people,” Cpl. MacDonald said, in a phone interview with The Bridgton News July 10. “A 15-year-old girl was ejected (from the boat) and the boat drove over her and severed her leg above the ankle. The operator of the boat was the girl’s father.” Cpl. MacDonald said in a statement issued later on Tuesday that a “family-owned” 24-foot Correct Craft inboard fiberglass motorboat was carrying six family members when it crashed near a small island on the east side of Kezar Lake.

“Involved in the crash was a 13-year-old boy being towed on a tube, a 10-year-old boy in the rear of the boat, three teenage girls sitting in the bow (one who is 13 and two 15-year-olds), and an adult driver,” MacDonald stated. “Driving the boat was

44-year-old Robert Mueller from Houston, Texas. Mueller was towing the boy when he struck a submerged rock barely visible from the surface. Upon impact, all three female passengers in the bow were ejected TEEN, Page A

When he came to Bridgton, he introduced the term “lowest responsible bidder” to allow the board to have a certain amount of discretion toward local preference, and that such a stance “has been consistently upheld” when the low bidder has challenged a board’s decision to pass them over in favor of a local business. “The hardest part is how do you determine when to go with it,” and when not to, he said. “It’s a very, very difficult line to walk.” Resident Chuck Renneker sided with Lopez on the issue, saying it would be too easy to allow “personal relationships” to intervene when deciding how the town’s money should be spent. “I think it has to be a black and white policy,” he said. But resident Lega Medcalf said Chalmer’s Commercial Agent Alletta Kimball has been very helpful to the Bridgton Historical Society — and that level of service might not exist with MMA, which is located in Augusta. “She explained all the intricacies of getting a liquor license,” Medcalf said. “If we

only allow the lowest bidder, we might have to outsource everything to China,” she said. Selectman Doug Taft said it would have been helpful, had representatives of both agencies appeared before the board to answer questions, so a better comparison could be made. McHatton said, “I’m going to fight tooth and nail for every single business in this town.” That stance was put to a live test later in the meeting, when it came time to act on buying a new police cruiser to replace the town’s worn-out 1996 Crown Victoria. Police Chief Kevin Schofield recommended that the bid go to Ripley & Fletcher, the low bidder at a price of $45,074 with tradein of a 2004 Ford Tahoe with 90,000 miles. He said he chose a Ford model over a Chrysler or Dodge, which is faster, because the Ford performs better with acceleration and gets better gas mileage. Chevys are nice, but they’re $3,000-$4,000 more expensive, he said. “They’re very easy to work with, and very good at servicing” police cruisers, Schofield said of Ripley & Fletcher, a South Paris dealership. Berkowitz, mindful of the previous discussion, broke in, telling the police chief to “be careful” in stating his reasoning for not going with the lowest bidder. McHatton favored Macdonald Motors of North Conway, N.H., who bid $2,300

They are cousins to those injured, he said, and are from Woodstock, Connecticut. “They were all staying at a family cabin on the lake,” said MacDonald. The victims came ashore at the docks at the Quisisana Resort on Pleasant Point, according to Lovell Fire Chief Tommie McKenzie, and the teenage victim was transported by ambulance to a nearby land-

ing zone and placed on the awaiting medivac helicopter. Game Warden Sergeant Dave Chabot and Wardens Neal Wykes and Kris Barboza investigated the boat crash. MacDonald said, “Assisting with today’s (July 10) crash were Kezar Lake Marina, Stoneham Rescue, Fryeburg Rescue, Lovell Fire & Rescue and LifeFlight.” “The crash remains under investigation,” said Cpl. MacDonald.

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer NAPLES — A 22-yearold man from Falmouth died and a 51-year-old man from Massachusetts was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on Thompson’s Point Road here last week, the wreckage of which was discovered by a woman out walking the family dog, in the early morning. According to police, the SUV the men were in left the roadway and struck a tree, crushing the 2003 Chevrolet Blazer, and the local woman out walking her dog came across the accident scene shortly before 4:30 a.m. on July 6. Police said the passenger, William B. Schneider, died at the scene of the crash, while the 51-year-old owner of the SUV, Richard D. Griffin of Peabody, Mass., was transported to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with lifethreatening injuries. Griffin was listed in “fair condition” at CMMC on Tuesday (July 10), a hospital spokesperson said. “It appears the vehicle had been there for awhile before it was discovered,” said Captain Don Goulet of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. Speed and alcohol both appear to be factors in the fatal

crash, according to Goulet. The accident remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division and the Detective Division, as well as a member of the Windham Police Department Reconstruction Team.

As a result of the second accident in which two vehicles collided head-on, the operator of the other vehicle, 55-year-old Catherine R. Carter, of Harrison, was airlifted by LifeFlight of Maine to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with lifethreatening injuries, police said.

at $47,367 with trade-in. “You can’t win for losing at this point,” Berkowitz observed with a smile. The discussion only serves to underscore the point that it needs to be clearly understood “when questions come up of how far is too far to stray” in terms of dollars from the lowest bidder, the town manager said. At that point, McHatton capitulated. “I said I’d fight tooth and nail, and I did. I move Ripley & Fletcher.” The vote was 4-1 in favor, with Taft opposed.

more than Ripley & Fletcher. The New Hampshire dealership is owned by the Macdonald family that has a car dealership in Bridgton, as well. On the opposite end, Taft favored Casco Bay Ford, technically the lowest bidder, but only by $16.

Therapy dog helps support disabled vets in fire zones

Man assaulted

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer An angry South Bridgton resident blasted Bridgton’s Board of Selectmen Tuesday, demanding to know why Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz wasn’t fired for not telling the board about an Avesta Housing, Inc.-related conflict of interest involving Neal Allen, a regional planner who served on the selection committee that recommended hiring Anne Krieg. William Barnes was also angry, he said, that his phone calls weren’t returned by several selectmen and The Bridgton News — calls that were made after he read an article published two weeks ago about the issue. “I’m not satisfied with the article and all the answers,” he said. “My goal was to ask selectmen to have (Berkowitz) fired.” He said he had considered start-

ing a petition to that effect. Berkowitz has said he erred in not telling the board that Allen, executive director of the Greater Portland Council of Governments, was also an Avesta Housing, Inc. board executive. Selectmen expressed their strong disappointment at their last meeting that Berkowitz did not inform them of Allen’s two hats, given the high-profile, controversial nature of public debate over the town’s relationship with the affordable housing agency. “I still think the whole Avesta thing smells like a fish market,” Barnes said. He told board members they had not fulfilled their “oath of office as a representative of the people” by not giving full disclosure in public of any discussions they may have had with Berkowitz over the matter. Barnes erroneously believed

that Berkowitz’s lack of disclosure about Allen’s potential to have a conflict of interest was discussed in an executive session following the last meeting, until Selectman Woody Woodward told him that was not the case. “I know you think that things should have been brought out in public. I believe they were brought out in public,” Woodward said. As for matters discussed in executive session — had they in fact had such a conversation, which they didn’t — Woodward said by law such matters must be kept confidential. Barnes wanted to know if Berkowitz had done something illegal, he said, adding that in his calls to individual selectmen and Berkowitz, all involved said that nothing illegal occurred. Selectman Bob McHatton said he studied “the situation,” and concluded

“the only thing (Berkowitz) did wrong was not telling the board” that Allen served on Avesta’s board of directors. As for Krieg’s hiring for the position of Director of Planning, Economic and Community Development, McHatton said, “Things went through an excellent process.” A lapse in judgment, furthermore, is “not any reason to terminate a town manager,” McHatton said. Barnes told the board that nevertheless, “I have a right under the First Amendment to Freedom of Speech.”

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer Six men from around the Lake Region have been charged with allegedly trafficking in narcotics, following a drug sting here last week. On July 3, members of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office along with agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency conducted the arrest sting of the suspected drug dealers, following a yearlong investigation of drug trafficking in the rural areas of Cumberland County, according to Captain Craig Smith of the Sheriff’s Office. Capt. Smith said police had received “numerous telephone and web-based tips” that allowed officers from the Sheriff’s Office and the MDEA “to target those involved with the sale and distribution of illegal narcotics within the rural

communities of Cumberland County.” “Although additional arrests are expected to be made, the subjects arrested today (July 3) were involved with the sale of heroin, cocaine, cocaine base ‘crack’, and prescription drugs such as OxyCodone,” Capt. Smith stated. Those arrested in last week’s sting include: David Willette, 37, of Naples, charged with felony Class B trafficking in Schedule W narcotics; Agostino Joseph Samson, 26, of Casco, charged with felony Class A trafficking in Schedule W narcotics; Agostino Paul Samson, 58, of Harrison, charged with felony Class A trafficking in Schedule W narcotics; Kevin Edwards,

29, of Harrison, charged with felony Class B trafficking in Schedule W narcotics; Mark Glantz, 48, of Windham, charged with felony Class B trafficking in Schedule W narcotics; and Norman Hightower, 30, of South Paris, charged with felony Class A trafficking in Schedule W narcotics. Hightower was arrested by another law enforcement agency, prior to the sting operation on outstanding warrants stemming from the CCSO/MDEA operation, according to Smith. Smith said police officers from the Bridgton Police Department and Windham Police Department also participated in the capture and arrest of certain individuals.

By Lisa Williams Ackley Staff Writer FRYEBURG — Two brothers from Lewiston were arrested and charged with assault last week, after they allegedly walked out of the Saco River on to private property at the end of Menotomy Road here and assaulted the landowner before throwing him into the river, police said. Police officers from Fryeburg, the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office and the Bridgton Police Department responded to the area known as Roy’s Beach around 6:30 p.m. on July 6 where the two brothers and approximately a dozen other people were camping on private property without permission, according to Fryeburg Police Officer Michelle Legare. Both Kristopher A. Levasseur, 30, and Matthew P. Levasseur, 27, were arrested on charges of assault and disorderly conduct and transported to the Oxford County Jail in Paris. Matthew Levasseur was also charged with obstructing governmental administration, while Kristopher Levasseur was additionally charged with failing to submit to arrest or detention by physical force and criminal mischief. The alleged assault took place in front of the landowner’s six-year-old son, Officer Legare said. “We were called to the end of Menotomy Road for an assault,” Officer Legare explained. “There was a dispute about the landowner’s kid’s toy that was in the sand in the river and the men climbed up the steps on to the river bank where he was assaulted and then they threw him in the river.” The landowner did not require medical attention, according to Officer Legare.

Karate honors NAPLES — Last week, two Lake Region Martial Artists received recognition at the Naples Town Hall Karate Class. Heather VanDecker of Otisfield received her black belt and Sean Bielat, formerly of Casco, received his fourth degree black belt. Heather has worked diligently for the past seven years and was presented her “shodan” (first degree black belt) by Masters Beth and John Bielat and Don Vitale of New Jersey, as well as Sensei Trina Austin and Sensei John Schrader. Sean has been training in the Martial Arts for over 25 years and has taught in Maine and New Hampshire. His “yodan” (fourth degree) advancement comes through hard work and teaching. Sean has taught and worked with elite athletes and MMA professionals. An elite group of Martial Artists work together in Naples each week and the Bielats, both seventh degree black belts, train with them during the summer. They operate a Karate school in Florida in the winter. Master Don Vitale, an eight degree black belt, came to Maine for the promotions. He is heavily involved in promoting the Martial Arts through groups like the United States Karate KARATE ENTHUSIASTS— (Pictured left to right) Greg Grant of Harrison, Sue Curran of Cape Elizabeth, Sean Bielat at Association and American Isshinryu. The Bielats, along with Master Vitale, have been appointed to Nottingham, N.H., Beth Bielat of Otisfield and Tavernier, Fla., Heather VanDecker of Otisfield, Paul Pratt of New Gloucester, Trina Austin of Casco, John Schrader of Sebago, John Bielat of Otisfield and Tavernier, Fla, and Don Vitale of Helmetta, teach theirs special style of Martial Arts through the American Isshinryu and document it through a new book, Reiki Isshinryu N.J.

Tar sands effects topic of lecture


line giant, may be considering to pump tar sands oil through the pipeline from Quebec to South Portland for export to global markets. An identical project, the Trailbreaker project, was abandoned in 2009 due to the economic downturn. Now, Enbridge appears to have resurfaced the idea. Environmental groups state-

wide are sounding the alarm because a tar sands oil spill, if it occurred, would devastate Maine’s economy and environment. The Portland Montreal Pipeline runs along and traverses some of Maine’s most critical lake and river watersheds including Sebago Lake, the Crooked River, and the Androscoggin River.

Free landowner assistance and grant funds are available to those living along Moose Pond. Due to a two-year grant awarded to the Cumberland County Soil and Water Conservation District (CCSWCD), all residents living near Moose Pond are eligible for free technical assistance and potential funding to address erosion on their property washing into the Pond. Sediment washing into the Pond carries the nutrient phosphorus. In excess amounts, phosphorus can lead to algae blooms, decreased water clarity, and low dissolved oxygen levels which are detrimental to aquatic organisms such as fish. Simple techniques can be incorporated by landowners to reduce this erosion. These techniques include installing water bars, roof drip

line trenches, meandering walking paths, infiltration steps, plants and rain gardens. Funding for this grant, the Moose Pond Watershed Implementation Project, is in part through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act. Section 319 grants are administered by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection in partnership with EPA in order to prevent or reduce water pollution in Maine. To sign up for a free consultation, please contact Heather True of CCSWCD at 207-892-4700 or CCSWCD is non-regulatory organization and the implementation of any recommendations is voluntary.

It is wonderful to see how they react to her gentle approach and demeanor. For many, it is the first reaching out that they have done as part of their rehabilitation program.” Wasche and Lacey also visit outpatient clinics to support veterans receiving physical therapy and other services, and represent the Red Cross when they with the children, families and friends of fallen soldiers as part of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS).

They didn’t know that Hacker’s Hill was an island after the glaciers receded and the Atlantic Ocean was inland. I think people were fascinated to learn that, and see explained through the rock formations,” Walia said. Geologists Walter Anderson and Robert Marvinney will head up that two-hour hike; and both rock hounds and novices are invited. Also, in the summertime line-up: A four-mile run along Quaker Ridge Road and up Hacker’s Hill in the early morning of Aug. 11. In the distant future, another hawk migration watch is likely to fall sometime in September.

“We normally charge. We mostly play at pubs in the area. We play all winter in Bethel. We don’t play much during the summer,” he said. In fact, Gunn’s banjo will be joined by the fiddle of Michael Hayashdida because the third band member Ted Tibbetts “is a white water raft guide, and makes money during the summer.” “One of us will talk the other into volunteering some other time,” he added. Swampdonkeys play traditional American and Irish, or Celtic, music. “Definitely, with the fiddle and bango, there will be some upbeat tunes, and a lot of tunes that go back to the 1800’s,” he said. The musicians also have some original pieces up their sleeves. “Our music is very much connected to nature. We have lots of songs about raccoons and skunks,” he said.

As part of its continuing outreach to help alleviate hunger in the communities it serves, Dead River Company is hosting a community open house at its Bridgton office (Portland Road) to benefit the local food pantry. The Bridgton office of Dead River Company, invites customers and non-customers alike, to a community open house on Friday, July 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item as a donation for the local food panty. The event is also designed to introduce Bridgtonarea families to the Dead River Company family. The open house includes a barbeque and prizes such as free heating oil and a gas grill. In addition, experts will be on hand to offer home heating and cooling ideas, as well as free home water tests, done on-site for attendees who bring samples from their homes.

A few years ago, Gunn, who typically volunteers his time for Western Mountain Land Trust (WMLT), performed with members of Swampdonkeys and pulled off a successful fundraiser. So, WMLT Lee Dassler volunteered the band members to help with the Hacker’s Hill endeavor, he said. “No, we usually don’t play for free,” said Gunn, whose regular job is for a conservational non-profit.

Raymond Town Manager Don Willard said O’Donnells did handle assessing duties there for over 10 years, but elected not to sign a new contract last year. Willard said no problems existed between the town and the assessing firm.

Rental concerns (Continued from Page A)

MORE WORK, BUT A MUCH BETTER SOLUTION — than killing or relocating Bridgton’s downtown beavers is managing flooding and learning to live with them, believes Richard Hesslein of Brownfield, shown here with his friend, Kristin Perry. Last weekend, using culvert material donated by the Bridgton Paris Farmers Union, Hesslein, Perry and Lega Medcalf worked with a state biologist to remove part of the dam behind the Bridgton Post Office and install a culvert to stabilize the brook’s water level. That way, the wetland the beavers have created can be retained for wildlife, without flooding the post office’s rear parking lot or the back yards of abutting properties. Hesslein hopes the beavers will eventually build a dam farther up the drainage way; in the meantime, neighbors he’s talked to are pleased with his efforts, and have granted their permission for the experiment.

Bridgton beavers’ saga continues

vers will stay, build a lodge (if they haven’t already) and have offspring to continue the cycle, he said. Hesslein became interested in protecting beavers 12 years ago, when he began quarrying gravel at his Perry Mountain Road property to control road flooding. The beavers created a wetland where there once was meadow, which was fine with him; but after spending $6,000 to make the road stand up to a higher water level, his neighbor killed the beavers because he was concerned about his trees, Hesslein said. So, with Lindsay’s guarded blessing, Hesslein went to work. “We’re trying to use this as a pilot project to show that it can be a cost effective way of dealing with beavers,” Lindsay said. Having beavers around, he said, is “usually a very positive thing for wildlife,” whether in the wild or right in the middle of town. Hesslein agrees wholeheartedly. Even though it’s a downtown location, he said, “There’s always been a wetland there, it just didn’t have water on it.” Allowing the beavers to stay will enhance, not detract, from the wetland, said Hesslein. The higher water level has already attracted a family of mallard ducks, and Medcalf said she saw

a six-inch fish in the brook while she was removing sticks from the dam. “The amount of wildlife is quite astounding,” she said. Janice Chadbourne, who lives on the top of Elm Street, was one of several property owners who gave their permission for Hesslein to install the water levering device. “She loves wildlife,” said Medcalf, noting that among beaver enthusiasts, the catch phrase is “watchable wildlife.” ‘All in favor of trying’ “I’m all in favor of trying,” said Lindsay. “In fact, I wish it was more common,” to install water-leveling devices, instead of the tendency — especially in southern Maine — to trap and kill, without even considering whether dam modification could be a more cost-effective solution. “The resistance (to coexistence) may just be from not knowing that the option is there,” Lindsay said. He said water-leveling devices and other beaver dam modification efforts are more common in northern Maine, and are in particular used to protect roads on paper company lands. But Hesslein, who is aware that “as little as a snowmobile trail can cause beaver to be killed,” knew there was another way. Immediately, he set to work on procuring the needed materials and obtaining the necessary permissions. He hit pay dirt when he appealed to the manager of the Bridgton Paris Farmers’ Union. Store Manager Kathy O’Neil enthusiastically embraced his cause, donating two long lengths of single-walled culvert and the coupler connection. “The equivalent value is around $200-$250 per section,” said Hesslein. Neither he nor Medcalf would have been able

to take on the project without the PFU’s help, they said. They also needed landowners’ permission. They got it from the owner of the post office, the Parsons Corp., and from Jeff Raymond, who manages the adjacent building housing Chandler Funeral Homes. Both were willing to let Hesslein give his project a try, and have agreed at Hesslein’s request to post their land against trapping. Hesslein hopes that willingness will extend to other property owners with frontage on the brook. On the other side of the brook, where houses and an apartment building are at only a slightly higher elevation than the wetland, Hesslein said the beavers could cause some water problems. But he hopes the beavers will eventually build farther upstream to eliminate the potential for problems there. Permission was also needed from the town, which has property extending from the brook to its Wayside Avenue leachfield. Medcalf said Public Works Director Jim Kidder has given his blessing to the project. She said he has also agreed to periodically keep an eye on the culvert, to make sure it continues to exist as a flowage. ‘Just relax and be happy’ Lindsay said that if the beavers stay, eventually the wetland would become more open, as the sapling trees are thinned out. The beavers will feed and build, feed and build, “until they can’t raise the water level any more, and then they’ll abandon the site.” It’s way too early to say whether the project will succeed or fail. Medcalf said she has been approached by three people who want the beavers on their property, and that a total of nearly 90 people attended two events she organized on separate days last month in Bridgton about coexisting with beavers. “It’s amazing how the beavers are repairing the dam each day,” she said. “Now that things have stabilized, maybe they’ll just relax and be happy.”

(Continued from Page A) them away, Lindsay said. Nevertheless, Hesslein said he wanted to at least try for coexistence, by installing a water leveler at the dam. A large length of culvert was laid in the brook over the dam, after Lindsay took a chain saw to cut a sizable notch in the middle of the dam. Interestingly, packed in with the mass of mud and sticks they removed from the dam were such items as a tape player and broken shards of glass. A wire dome cage was secured with rebar over the upstream end of the culvert to prevent the beavers from plugging it up. “When they hear the sound of running water, it stimulates them to build,” Lindsay said. There’s a sizable bend in the culvert over the dam, and Lindsay has offered to remove more dam material so that the culvert will lay parallel to the water surface and enhance the flow of water. In order to succeed, the beavers have to build up the dam to hold the levelers in place. “I hope it goes well,” Lindsay said. “I do appreciate the efforts of Lega and Rick. Though Rick and I have our differences on beaver management, we agree on the potential ecological value of their work.” Better to modify than move them out Hesslein believes that simply moving the beavers out, without changing the habitat, would only encourage different beavers to move in. It’s better to modify the habitat as the beavers have engineered it, in order to control flooding, and with luck the bea-

Mallon said he hopes an initiative will be undertaken “if Bridgton wants to enforce something like this that I think is desperately needed.” “It has been terrible, seeing some of these pictures in the paper,” said Bridgton Planning Board member Deanna “Dee” Miller of recent newspaper articles highlighting the questionable conditions of certain rental properties here. “I, personally, am in favor of a property maintenance code that would authorize someone to go onto a property to inspect it,” Miller said. “I’ve also been told that if more regular fire inspection is undertaken, the fire inspector could relay some other (code) violations” to the proper authority. Bridgton Fire Chief Glen Garland responded to Miller’s remarks, saying, “We’re dealing with complaints and things we become aware of, either on a fire call or if a tenant makes us aware of something.” The fire chief went on to say that a part-time fire inspector position is included in the budget approved for 2012–2013, but that “it has not been approved by the selectmen and hired.” Garland said the new fire inspector job description calls for eight hours per week, or one day per week, “on a per diem basis to do fire prevention inspections.” Bridgton Planning Board Chairman Steve Collins and board members Brian Thomas and Fred Packard all told Mallon that he should make his presentation to the Bridgton Board of Selectmen which has enforcement authority. “I know a lot of people have been going before the selectmen” about the conditions of rental properties in Bridgton, Thomas said. “The (Bridgton) Community Crime Watch has formed a committee, and I believe they are looking at the International Property Maintenance Code that would dovetail with other codes (in place),” Garland stated. “I hate to bring this up,” said Bridgton Code Enforcement Officer Rob Baker July 10, “but the Town of Norway has an apartment ordinance where, before a landlord can rent or lease an apartment, there is a checklist to go through and a $25 per apartment fee or they can be put on a list and the inspections are done annually or every two years.” Mallon said that, regardless of what enforcement mechanism or authority is used, he feels the enactment of regulations regarding the proper conditions for rental properties would make sure “that no matter what uniform they’re wearing” an inspection would make landlords “sit up and pay attention.” “It’s as fair to the landlord, as it is to the tenant,” Mallon stated. Chairman Collins cited a couple of recent examples where residents stepped forward due to their concerns over two separate issues — one on large-scale groundwater extraction and the other on a proposed rock quarry. “When some citizens were worried about the Poland Spring octopus, the selectmen appointed a committee and it worked very well — they did a diligent job,” said Collins. “They did the same thing when the quarry came up.” “And, you ask rhetorically, whose hands to put the (HUD booklet and other) documents in — and that would be you (Mallon),” Collins said. “Your pitch is so straightforward and so simple and so easy to grasp — I can see a committee being formed to generate some language, even if it’s that (HUD) document.” “You’ve impressed us with the clarity of your presentation,” said Collins.

Brewery proposal

(Continued from Page A) property to the applicants does not take place. Thomas said he was told the purchase of the property on Portland Road, where the brewery would be located, might not happen, saying, “They said if they’re not going to buy the place, they don’t want to pay for the (stormwater runoff) survey.” Thomas then asked what would happen if the applicants do not attend the August planning board meeting. “We could say this application has lapsed,” Chairman Collins said. “We’ve run into this before, where things have been on the (planning board’s) table for a year, or two or three,” said Bridgton Code Enforcement Officer Rob Baker. Baker then read a section of the Bridgton Site Plan Review Ordinance that states the planning board can request additional information from an applicant that, “if not submitted within three months from the planning board’s request, the application becomes null and void.” MDOT cold storage building approved The planning board gave its unanimous preliminary approval to the Maine Department of Transportation’s plans to construct a 40foot by 60-foot cold storage building at its property on Route 302 conditional upon MDOT paying the fee required and ensuring that exterior lighting “is shielded and downward facing.” Approvals by CEO Applications that do not require planning board approval that have been approved by CEO Baker per the Bridgton Site Plan Review Ordinance include: • Perry Greengrocer, a fruit and vegetable stand at 16 Depot Street; • Central Maine Power Company’s additions and renovations at their facility at 133 Portland Road; and • Hakuna Matata by Paul A. Dubrule for a residence (rental apartments) and retail operations at 187 Main Street. “I think it’s very encouraging to see Depot Street commercial properties being rented, as well as the south side of Main Street,” Chairman Collins said. “That, again, is very encouraging.”

SLLMF begins 40th season

HARRISON — Returning for its 40th season, the SebagoLong Lake Music Festival will present the first concert of the Tuesday night chamber music series on July 17, at 7:30 p.m., at the historic Deertrees Theatre in Harrison. Laurie Kennedy, the Festival’s music director, has designed a series of programs that are stunning in their variety and excitement — all befitting a 40th anniversary celebration. The first concert features works by Poulenc, William Bolcom, Avner Dorman and Beethoven. The program opens with Poulenc’s delightful Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano. A longtime favorite work at the Festival, this trio was performed in the very first season in 1973 by two of the founders — Judith and Homer Pence — and was repeated by them many times before their retirement in 1995. The happy and spritely first movement is followed by a musing second movement, involving the melodic interweaving of oboe and bassoon, and a finale that is quite merry — almost puckish. The work will be performed at this concert by Theodore Baskin, who can be heard as principal oboist on more than 70 recordings with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra; Janet Polk, principal bassoonist of the Portland Symphony Orchestra; and Maine pianist Yuri Funahashi, a member of the Colby College faculty and a performer with the Festival Chamber Music Society of New York City. The next work, Let Evening Come, by contemporary American composer William Bolcom, is a musical setting of poems by Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, and Janet Kenyon, all dealing with the acceptance of and inevitability of death. Ironically, the work was being written for two famous opera stars, soprano Benita Valente and mezzo-soprano Tatiana Troyanos, but before the piece was finished, Troyanos had died. Her part was recreated for viola. Artists for this performance are

soprano Lisa Saffer, the noted international opera star and now Maine resident; Kennedy, Festival music director and principal violist of the Portland Symphony; and Yuri Funahashi. The third work, Jerusalem Mix, by the young contemporary Israeli composer, Avner Dorman, is decidedly about life. Celebrating the many aspects of life experienced in the very modern, yet at the same time very ancient, city of Jerusalem, the work draws themes from the mix of cultures — Christian, Jewish, Islamic — and activities such as prayers, weddings, city living. At one point, the pianist plays the strings of the piano with drumsticks! This is really fun! For this festive piece, Funahashi, Baskin, and Polk will be joined by Festival newcomer, clarinetist Eric Thomas, who teaches at Colby College and performs with the Apple Hill Chamber Players, and John Boden, principal horn of the Portland Symphony who also performs and records with early music groups in Boston, San Francisco, Cleveland and Washington. The concert will end with Beethoven in a mellow and playful mood. The Quintet in E-Flat Major, OP. 16 for piano and winds (same grouping as Jerusalem Mix), is unusual in that it was written for winds in a time (1796) when most chamber music featured strings. Beginning with a fanfare, it moves through a lovely andante cantabile, and ends with an irresistible jocularity that is reminiscent of a group of buddies heading off for a fun night on the town. You too, can have a wonderful fun night out if you come to this concert! Tickets for the concerts at Deertrees are $100 for the series of five concerts, and $25 for individual concerts. Tickets for anyone 21 and under are free and available at the door, first-come, first-served. To purchase tickets online go to To purchase tickets by mail: SLLMF, P.O. Box 544, Harrison,

Music galore at the 2012 Waterford World’s Fair

WATERFORD — Live entertainment and agricultural events headline the 2012 Waterford “World’s Fair” next Friday through Sunday, July 20-22. Again this year, the World’s Fair has a full schedule of top notch musical acts performing on the Norway Savings Bank stage. Starting at 4 p.m. on Friday, Portland-based Tricky Britches kicks off the music lineup with a progressive, high energy bluegrass set that will make you smile and we guarantee your toe will be tapping. At 5:30 p.m., Trailer Trash takes the stage. These guys are truly a local favorite. Performing around the Oxford Hills and beyond for more than 25 years, Paul Dube and Ellen Linsey will give a show to remember, playing many familiar folk-rock, blues, and country tunes along with some of Paul’s awesome original songs. And when Eric Grenier joins them with his wailin’ harp, the audience will simply be blown away. At 7 p.m., The Swampdonkeys will make you wonder, “How can these guys say so many words so fast?” Close your eyes and you will think you’re in an Irish pub. This southern Maine Celtic/ bluegrass trio, with their wellblended harmonies, will give you the foot stompin’ show that makes them popular.

Topping off Friday night, Waterford’s own beloved Jordan Kaulback takes the stage at 8:30 p.m. Jordan (Kauls) has a large following wherever he plays. His very rhythmic style would even impress the likes of such world class players as Jack Johnson and Zack Deputy. He’ll also surprise you with the medleys he puts together, some of which include older standards than you’d expect a guy his age to even know. Jordan’s known for his looping skills as well. This is where he’ll electronically lay down multiple live tracks, while he’s performing, and sing and play lead on top of them. On Saturday at 4 p.m., Terry Swett and the Milltown Roadshow start the evening on the NSB stage. Terry, a prolific songwriter, along with his longtime friend and backup singer, Debbie Stanford, have formed a solid bond with Connecticut native Jack Jolie. Jack, who now calls South Bridgton his home, adds an impressive flatpicking bluegrass guitar style to the mix. The Roadshow’s tight harmonies musical arrangements provide a sound you won’t soon forget. If blues are your calling, you will not want to miss the 5:30 p.m. performance of Black Cat Road.

Denmark film opening act at film fest (Continued from Page B) the story of a family reunion where the only ones who show up are the ones who didn’t know it was cancelled.   In a rare honor, this little-film-that-could has been awarded the prestigious opening night slot for the 15th annual Maine International Film Festival. The film will make its official debut Friday, July 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the fabulous, newly-restored Waterville Opera House.  Programmer and festival founder Ken Eisen, praises the film as “beautiful, funny, modest, profound, original, following in a tradition (in fact, justifying it for about the first time ever), human, honest,” before adding, “I was blown away.”  Ms. Black will be joining the rest of the cast and crew of the film for this event.  Telling the simple story of a failed family reunion, in which a long-estranged mother and her stubborn daughter are reunited, seemingly by an act of God, VacationLand is inspired by the rhythms and moods of summer in Maine, and trades in themes of family, fate, hope, and redemption that find expression in these north woods. Starring along with Ms. Black are Peter Pentz, Sarah Paul Ocampo and 12-year-old Ivy Girdwood.  Funny, moving and celebratory, VacationLand stands as testament to the pioneering spirit of rural Maine, and is sure to resonate with local audiences. The film, which was produced by Denmark’s Sarah Françoise

and Jamie Hook through their production company, Complicated, Inc., was shot in August 2010 and August 2011. The film is a coproduction with the Denmark Arts Center, which provided, among other things, editing facilities and production resources. Vacationland was directed by Denmark Arts Center’s own Artistic Director, Jamie Hook, whose previous feature, The Naked Proof, also played at MIFF in 2005.

Drinking in the summer Dynamic Aging by Dona Forke Registered Dietitian

Summer Drinks Aah, summer — it’s important to keep our bodies hydrated, but sometimes we get sick of “plain water.” Many folks will turn to sugary lemonade or soda, which may be okay as rare treats, but should not be everyday fare. By now we all know that sugary beverages contribute to overweight and obesity. They also don’t keep us full for very long, as they cause blood sugar to rise quickly and drop quickly. Hence, we can end up eating more calories than we need if those drinks are a regular part of our meals or snacks. One of my favorite web-

sites is This is the American Institute of Cancer Research website and the July e-news contains some great drink alternatives for those hot summer days. Here are a few that caught my eye. Fruit-infused waters 1. Slice 1/2 cup fresh strawberries 2. Select several sprigs of fresh mint and rinse if needed Add to 1-2 quarts of fresh, cold water and refrigerate for several hours to let flavors mingle. The longer you let it soak (even up to a day), the more prominent the flavors will become. A pitcher of lemon and basil water can be just as

unique and delicious: 1. Slice 1 whole lemon 2. Select 1/4 – 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves Add to 1-2 quarts of fresh, cold water and refrigerate as in the previous recipe. This water may remind you of a fragrant, summer herb garden. Green Tea Slush with Apricot Nectar 3 cups prepared green tea (use decaffeinated if desired) 1 cup apricot nectar 1 cup crushed ice 1 Tbsp. honey  In blender or food processor, combine all ingredients and puree until smooth. Makes 4 servings at 51 calories per serving.

Naples by Cheryl Harmon Naples Correspondent 693-4016

A great parade, super fireworks Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. The weather made it iffy for fireworks, but everything worked out. Our Naples Parade was very nice. I really liked the Madura float going from one generation to another. I remember when “T” Madura had his floats in the parade. That would be Andy’s dad. I know I’m dating myself. It seems only natural to pass things down. Get the kids involved early, and things should naturally carry on. As always, it was nice to see Camp Takajo in the parade. They looked rather hot, but were having a good time. Nice to see the familiar faces of friends you don’t see very often; and the smiling faces from the crowd, especially the kids, waiting for the candy or beads. The fireworks were super.

Nearly 40 area children learned to look to the sky and trust in God no matter what happens in their lives when they attended a weeklong Vacation Bible Camp at Bridgton’s First Congregational Church last week. The theme this year was “Sky – Everything is Possible with God,” and the entire church was decorated with puffy white clouds, hot-air balloons, and colorful kites. Campers ranging from babies to middle-schoolers attended. Twenty teen counselors, 14 adult volunteers and three staff members planned and coordinated activities including arts and crafts, science projects, storytelling, sports, and music. This was the third year participating in Vacation Bible Camp for Amanda Wozich’s children, Samantha and Adrian. “The kids just love it. It’s a really fun, positive way to kick off summer,” she said. “They talk about Bible camp all year long.” Camp was a positive experience for the volunteers who helped as well. Michaele Potvin, who has two young campers in the program this year, decided to spend a week of her vacation to volunteer at camp. “I enjoy working with children,” she said. “I find that volunteering at Bible Camp enriches my life as well as my faith.” Campers were divided into four groups according to age bracket, and competed for prizes that were awarded at the end of camp. At the finale held on the last day of camp, each group shared with parents and visitors songs they’d learned throughout the week. The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, is an Open and Affirming

Lovell celebrations fill the upcoming calendar with events

(Continued from Page B) a good film for the age group, say 18 to 50, but because of the gore and explicit language, it didn’t go over well with the more mature set, at least with me. It was original and the visual and sound effects were very good. The way the main characters were introduced was really original and funny.

There were laughs, which were in its favor. Rate it adult only. The Historical Society’s “North Lovell Conversations” was just the opposite. For this event, there were five folks who grew up in Lovell, talking about what it was like to go through childhood up to adulthood. Jo Radner suggest-


ed topics to Jack Hawley, Ruth Mitchell, Cliff Hill, Fred Fox and Bill Lord, and the tales would fly. Most of the stories were funny, as when they were describing going to school in a one-room schoolhouse. In this era, they all would have been labeled. Just being a kid, a teenager climbing to the ultimate goal of being an adult sounded like so much fun. All I could think about was the kids who grow up here now,

and wonder if any of the boys had ever gone smelting. The full house appreciated the stories and the time that the panel gave for this program. Stan Tupaj videoed the proceedings so it would be available at the historical society. Some of the pictures displayed were wonderful. The results of the Ladies Day golf at Lake Kezar on June 28 were impressive, with these four ladies making chip-ins —

OFF AND RUNNING — On a rainy morning, a record field turned out for the 36th annual Bridgton 4 On The Fourth Road Race. Silas Eastman, a senior this year at Fryeburg Academy (far right, no shirt on) defeated a Raider alum and former star runner, Tim Even (to the left, #1674) with a strong finish down Depot Street to win the four-miler.

Silas with big kick

H.S. state champ captures his first Bridgton title in 21:33 By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer Like the old postal service slogan goes, bad weather conditions will not slow down Silas Eastman or Tim Even. As champion runners, both have conquered whatever stormy conditions Mother Nature can whip up. So, when a little mist turned into rain during last Wednesday’s 36th annual Bridgton 4 on the Fourth Road Race, the seasoned runners welcomed the cooler temperatures. “I’d rather run in the rain than the heat,” said Eastman, 17, of Chatham, N.H., who won the four miler for the first time, in 21 minutes, 33 seconds. Eastman, a two-time defending Class B cross country champion from Fryeburg Academy, pulled away from Raider alum Tim Even of Stoneham along Main Street to claim the victory. “Silas is incredible. I knew he would have a great kick

at the end,” said Even, who just finished up an impressive senior season at the University of Southern Maine, which included an appearance in the national track championships in California just a couple of weeks ago. “I approached this race as a fun run, just getting back into it after Nationals and trying to prepare for the Beach to Beacon (race).” Even, who starred during his days at the Academy, admits he is more of a “track guy” while Eastman is built to be a dominant cross-country runner. Even competed in the 1500 meters as a member of the Huskies track team, and ran that distance at Nationals, where he placed 17th. “I’ve been telling Silas that is where his strength is. He’s got the build, and has worked very hard to be where he is. I’m proud of what he has been able to accomplish, including winning the race today,” Even said.

Even placed second in 21 minutes, 41 seconds followed by Peter Bottomley, 50, of Cape Elizabeth in 22:08. Emily Ward, 30, of Richmond, Va. captured the women’s title in 24:26. Vacationing with family members on Long Lake, Ward also enjoyed the cooler temperatures. “The conditions were perfect,” said Ward, who is training to compete in triathlons. “I’m used to humidity. I think this past week it was over 102 every day in Virginia.” Cathleen Balantic, 25, of Niantic, Conn. was second in 25:12, while April Werning, 36, of Portland was third in 25:21. Race Director Jim Cossey reported that 2012 produced a record number of runners registering for the race at 2101. With 1,878 finishers, 2012 was a record setter. The previous high was 1,757. Cossey said a new online registration record was set

FLYING ALONG — Bowan Schneider, age 9, of Camp Owatonna heads down Main Street during last week’s Bridgton 4 on the Fourth Road Race. (Rivet Photos) :1,442. 2012 marked the earliest date — March 5 — to reach 500 registrations (i.e. date when 500 free t-shirts are gone). The race also featured the largest number of camper runners since 2006: 503. “I think this reflects an improving economy,” Cossey said.

It Dawned on Me by Dawn De Busk News Columnist

The misuse of my words

It would be appropriate in July if I tackled either patriotism or the real-life history of Independence Day. For either one, I will have to do some research, which is what I love to do anyhow. Give me a word to look up in the dictionary and I will come back knowing another two or three on my journey to the initial entry. Lately, I have been accustomed to calling myself a “dork.” That is a word, which I thought meant I am smart, and few people understand me, especially when I am joking. However, upon actually looking up the word on my computer’s, I found out that I have been wrong. After reading the Internet version, I no longer am willing to be a “dork.” The synonym for the word was not one upon which I was counting. Instead, I’ve decided being a “geek” is much better. That word has a history that dates back to the early 1900s. The word is derived from the fierce warriors with the notable bagpipes — the Scots. At first, while I argued that the second definition of “geek” defined me more accurately, my daughter teased me that the third QUIETLY ENJOYING THE FOURTH — Three-month-old Kaiden Rickett, son of Katelyn Cann one was more appropriate. My exquisite debate that I am much and Keith Rickett, is sound asleep during the Naples Fourth of July Parade. Kaiden’s grandparents are Keith and Boni Rickett of Naples. MISUSE, Page D

A tax, by any other name, is still a tax Front Row Seat by Tom McLaughlin News Columnist

So it’s a tax law, huh? If it’s a law forcing people to buy health insurance, it’s not constitutional, but if it’s a tax law,

it is. Get it? I’m okay with this logic except that Obamacare didn’t pass as a tax bill. The Democrats in Congress who

voted for it insisted it wasn’t a tax bill. Not a single Republican voted for it. It was signed by a Democrat president who insisted it wasn’t a tax bill. It never would have passed if it were a tax bill, so they didn’t call it that. Rather, they called it “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” but nobody calls it that anymore. Everyone calls it Obamacare. So the Roberts Court should have declared it unconstitu-

tional and sent it back to the Congress, right? Yes, but they didn’t do that. Instead, Roberts re-wrote Obamacare as a tax law and declared it constitutional! He did this with the four liberal justices who just wanted to move it along no matter how that was achieved. Even Justice Flipflopper — I mean Kennedy — was flabbergasted by this. Talk about legislating from the bench! My middle-school civics students knew it’s the

Healing herbs, flowers and weeds Earth Notes

“Earth Notes” is an outgrowth of a deep ecology discussion group. Writers reflect a delight in and concern for the earth and are individually responsible for opinions and information. Community members are invited to submit articles. E-mail jschap@ for details. By Susan Meeker-Lowry Summer is here and finally our gardens are taking off. It took a while this year because of our extremely wet, cool June, but now the flowers are blooming and veggies are beginning to come in. I love summer. Not everything about it — the mosquitoes here in Fryeburg are a bit much this year, and it seems that each year the severe thunderstorms become more frequent, which is stressful — but when the sun is out and the sky is so very blue it takes your breath away, well, it just doesn’t get any better than that. So in honor of summer, I

thought I’d write about the healing qualities of some of my favorite common garden flowers and “weeds.” If you’re at all intrigued, there’s lots of information available in books and online. I particularly recommend anything by Rosemary Gladstar or Susun Weed, and do check out Plant Healer Magazine online. One of the best skin care herbs is Calendula officinalis. Often called “pot marigold” because in days past it was often added to the soup pot, calendula is easy to grow and blooms prolifically from summer to frost in sunny yellows, oranges, even reds and maroons. Calendula has anti-

viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties, and promotes skin regeneration, heals rashes, burns, skin problems associated with radiation therapy, sores and ulcers, minimizes scar tissue, and is an excellent skin moisturizer. It can be used as an infusion, tincture or infused in oil, which is what I do most with it. As such, it makes a wonderful massage oil, and is gentle enough for healing and preventing diaper and heat rashes on baby’s tender skin. Another awesome flower for skin care is the rose. There are many varieties, but I love rosa rugosa for medicine and skin care. Growing up, I called them wild roses or, near the ocean, beach roses. Flowers range from pale pink to deep magenta, and are wonderfully fragrant. Rose infused oil is suitable for all skin types especially dry, sensitive, irritated and mature skin. And over time, a rose’s astringent effect will greatly diminish those tiny red capillaries close to the skin’s

surface. It takes a lot of rose petals to make rose infused oil, so if you’re not blessed with a large hedge nearby, you can use dried organic roses. Or, you can add pure rose essential oil (costly but worth it) to a carrier oil like almond, coconut, olive or jojoba. Don’t use roses from the florist! St. John’s wort (hypericum perforatum) is a common “weed” that grows by the roadside and in what are often referred to as waste places. Its sunny, yellow flowers and ability to thrive in harsh, dry conditions hint at its medicinal qualities. St. J’s is a powerhouse of healing: anti-inflammatory, astringent, anti-viral, antioxidant. Most often considered an herb for depression and taken as a tincture or capsule, when infused in oil St. John’s wort is a premier skin care herb. It soothes and heals burns of all types, and its antiviral qualities mean that it shortens the duration of herpes and cold sores. In addition, it’s an excellent herb HEALING, Page 10D

Untold story from WWII Letters Views from Senate by Susan Collins United States Senator

America’s history is filled with many fascinating yet little known stories of those who have served our nation in times of war. The brave women of the Clubmobiles, who served our country with distinction overseas during World War II, tell one such story. During the war, the American Red Cross was charged by the Armed Forces to provide for the recreational welfare of U.S. troops serving in Great Britain. Wherever there was a sizable group of American servicemen permanently assigned,

the Red Cross established canteens, which provided a bit of respite from training for war and were tremendously popular. But, the canteens were fixed sites, and didn’t reach many of the combat troops garrisoned at small locations across the English countryside.  In order to extend a taste of home to the troops, the Red Cross thought up the idea of a “Clubmobile,” a mobile kitchen set up in an old London bus. In late 1942, several of these Clubmobiles began operating between dozens of bases around

the country, serving coffee and doughnuts to those preparing for D-Day. Shortly after the beachhead at Normandy was successfully secured, 80 Clubmobiles and 320 volunteers crossed the English Channel to begin operating their mobile kitchens near the front lines. Each Clubmobile group, consisting of eight twoand-a-half ton trucks named for an American city or state, was attached to an Army Corps and moved with the unit’s support elements, often going forward to provide the troops with American music, hot coffee, and doughnuts. Like every soldier, the Clubmobile women were in “for the duration.” By war’s end, the Clubmobiles were operating all across Europe, from southern Italy to northern Germany, and in the Far East from the jungles of Burma to the shores of Tokyo Bay.

By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor The Medicare Rights Center in Washington has recently circulated some important information about Medicare coverage for diabetes. This is the first of a three-part series on this topic. Medicare pays 100% of the cost of diabetes screenings every year. That’s one of several “preventive care” benefits of the Affordable Care Act. If you’re pre-diabetic, Medicare will cover two diabetes screening tests per calendar year without co-pays or deductibles. Having pre-diabetes means you have blood glucose (sugar) levels that are higher than normal, but you aren’t yet diabetic. These preventive diabetes screenings include fasting glucose tests and/or post-glucose challenge tests. If you have diabetes, Medicare Part B covers most care, including doctors’ office visits, screening tests, and diabetes self-management training and diabetes supplies (details on insulin coverage will appear in the third Nugget on diabetes). Medicare Part B pays 80% of the cost of a doctor’s office visit after you meet the Part B deductible. Medicare Supplement insurance would normally pick-up the other 20%. Stan Cohen, a Medicare volunteer counselor, is available for free, one-on-one consultations at Bridgton Hospital on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 11 a.m. No appointment is necessary. Alternatively, call the Southern Maine Agency on Aging (800-427-7411) and ask for a Medicare Advocate. Mr. Cohen will not be available from July 16 through July 31.

Bird Watch by Jean Preis News Columnist

Loons on the lakes

A couple of days ago, a friend phoned to tell me about a loon nest her daughter and young grandson discovered. The two had paddled their open-topped kayaks to a small island, where they planned to tie their boats to the shore and do some exploring on foot. As the boy nosed his boat up to the edge of the island, something burst out from the vegetation and landed on his kayak. It was a loon. Luckily, he had been sitting with his legs drawn up close to his body so the loon did not land on top of him. He was unhurt, and the loon did not appear to have been injured. Immediately, the loon slid off into the water, swam in a tight circle to face the intruder, and have existed because of the impact they have on providing diverse habitats that benefit biodiversity. Biodiversity is key to keeping a balance in our natural systems so that overpopulation by one species or pest or disease is stopped by natural balances of competing organisms. This increases vital resilience in our environmental health, reducing things like massive insect invasions of forests and reducing the presence of disease in insects like mosquitoes and ticks. Beavers have an additional huge asset in their effect on the planet’s hydrology. Slowing the loss of surface water to the sea, reducing the likelihood of catastrophic floods, recharging aquifers, purifying and filtering sediments and pollutants, not to mention the reduction of potential forest fire. Do all these wonderful attributes of beavers mean that they can always be preserved in every

glared at him, warning him to clear out of there fast! Mother and son paddled away quickly, but they had been close enough to glimpse the loon’s nest, which contained two large brown speckled eggs. Most years, loon chicks hatch around the Fourth of July, but heavy rains this spring raised the level of the lakes and flooded many nest sites. It’s possible this loon was unable to nest earlier because of high water, or may have lost a nest when it flooded. Our friends had visited this island before and had never seen a loon nest there, so this bird may have had to settle on a less desirable location for this nest. LOONS, Page 10D

circumstance? Unfortunately no, in many instances the impacts of flooding or plugging can’t be tolerated, due to certain realities. Presently, I’m afraid there is too much persecution of beavers from ill-informed attitudes. Therefore, too often beaver and us all lose out. We must do better to protect their activity where we can and mitigate where we must in the most sensible and positive way practicable. Richard Hesslein Brownfield

Fair season

We are lucky here in Maine to have such beautiful summers, and along with summer comes fair season. We also have a long and proud tradition of agriculture here, and a great way to enjoy the summer and get to see the best of our agriculture is by going to one of the state agricultural fairs. These fairs are loads of fun, and whether you are interested in the rides on the midway, seeing the prize vegetables, the champion animals, or even the tractor pull, you almost always get your money’s worth. And some of the fairs have horse races as well. Below is a list of the Maine State Agricultural Fairs: This month July 12-15: Ossipee Valley Fair, South Hiram. July 20-22, Waterford World’s Fair, North Waterford. July 26-29, Pittston Fair, Pittston, July 27-Aug. 5, Bangor State Fair, Bangor. July 27-Aug. 4, Northern Maine Fair, Presque Isle.

grievances and the specific ongoing problems — some of which were covered in the newspaper article. The chief’s policy of mediation (“talking”) certainly has merit and is the first reasonable method of defusing ongoing problems. In a perfect world, mediation succeeds for all parties.

June report on unemployment



(Continued from Page D) The Disorderly House Ordinance was enacted to eliminate repetitive disorderly behavior from repeat offenders. I am appalled that Bridgton Chief of Police Kevin Schofield would characterize a caller’s complaints to “the boy who cried wolf.” There are many people that are hesitant to call the police for legitimate complaints. Often times, the fear of retaliation by the offenders is a real concern. It saddens me that one individual that isn’t afraid to be the voice of many and call the police is ridiculed. The rental properties that would fall under the proposed Substandard Housing Ordinance often house individuals with questionable characters, known drug users and those with criminal backgrounds. I hope that the chief’s harsh comments do not prevent other residents from calling the police when measures such as speaking directly to the offenders is not an option or simply falls on deaf ears. I am confident that any police officer, Chief Schofield included, would find living next door to a “disorderly house” would quickly interfere with their “quality of life.” As a tax payer and a member of the community, I will continue to support those individuals with the drive and determination to continue to make this a desirable and safe town to live in.

Government of the People by the People, you think? When politicians admit using their positions to exempt themselves from the laws they make for us and taking inside information from Wall Street, refusing to pay taxes and hide behind their honorable positions, forgetting who they represent. They lost the right we gave them. The millions they profited from should be returned to the people. They should never hold any office, right down to dogcatcher. The IOUs they reap after retiring is no more than bribes made over their years in office. Honorably taking advantage of

July 12, 2012, The Bridgton News, Page D


(Continued from Page D) sional, young man has done nothing to warrant such a poor reference and poor choice of words that label not only this young man, but the rest of us who reside and pay taxes in this young man’s neighborhood. All this young man is doing is exercising not only his rights as a homeowner but for the rest of us who own and pay taxes, to live in peace and harmony both inside and outside of our homes.  I agree with Chief of Police Kevin Schofield that “neighbors should civilly work out any quality of life issue needing a neighborhood conversation about how their noise, habits, of lifestyles are affecting one another.”  The “boy who cries wolf” did that for over two years without any remedy by the abutters. So, the next obvious step to me is to call the Bridgton Police Department.  Dozens and dozens of calls later to the police department still has not remedied “the incessant disorder” emanating from my neighbors’ abutters.  I can appreciate the frustrations “the boy who cries Wolf” has because from 20012008, my home on Walker Street was surrounded 24/7 by neighbors who participated in buying and selling illegal drugs, prostitution, dangerous dog and incessant loud bass music that shook the windows and walls of my sacred home.  The approach I took was to deal directly with the violators of my rights to live in peace inside and outside our home. I put my personal safety and that of our beloved Jeannie at risk by “let’s communicate with the dope dealers and company” and the “landlords who rented to these folks who violated our rights to live without fear.” Jeannie and I put in dozens and dozens of phone calls and written dozens of police statements over the past years and there is still no remedy to the problems around our sacred home. The only remedy that I came up with was to establish a Neighborhood Watch Program, which became a very successful outlet for my neighborhood. If it wasn’t for the establishment of the Disorderly House Ordinance in 2008, my home would still be surrounded by people who made not only my life, but the lives of other hardworking homeowners and renters miserable.   In closing, I love living in my sacred home in my special neighborhood.  I love all my neighbors who I consider my friends. I especially welcome “the boy who cries wolf” to my neighborhood. He is owed a public apology by the police chief for such a judgmental label. Paulina Dellosso Bridgton

As anyone who lives or visits here knows, we have calm waters when the whitecaps are out on Sebago, beautiful sunsets and a pretty healthy local wildlife population. We do, however, have a milfoil problem. Our local milfoil organization, Save Sebago Cove, has done a good job of marking the worst areas of infestation with milfoil buoys. Most local boaters understand and respect them. Unfortunately, S.S.C. lacks the funding necessary to combat milfoil in a meaningful way with suction harvesting. In the absence of adequate funding for milfoil removal, an ounce of prevention is very much worth a pound of cure. The most cost effective method available to stop the spread of milfoil is public awareness, individual good behavior and common sense. All three are apparently in short supply with some. No amount of money will ever be sufficient to address Muddy River’s growing milfoil problem, as long as a slalom course in the middle of a marked milfoil bed remains in use. A slalom course in the

middle of a marked milfoil bed sounds improbable to anyone who hasn’t seen it for themselves. It is, nonetheless true, clearly counterproductive to the public interest and perfectly legal under current Maine law. The owner of the course is from elsewhere on Sebago. He and his associates are at this point its singular users. Anyone who has watched the process knows that each use of the slalom course is like mowing a lawn and rings the shoreline with milfoil fragments shortly thereafter. Every one of those milfoil fragments has the potential to become a new plant — all too many do so. I discussed the problem with the owner of the slalom course myself two years ago, as he picked milfoil fragments off the back of his boat. I asked that he examine his conscience. He claimed that he did not know that there was milfoil under the slalom course and that he did not understand the milfoil buoys. I showed him the milfoil under the course and explained the milfoil buoys. He then went back to “mowing the lawn.” He has continued to do so ever since and is doing so right now as I write this letter. To be perfectly frank, I am outraged by this self-centered, bad behavior at the expense of so many. I for one am not willing to bury my head in the sand on this issue. The effect is at its worst when the water is low and milfoil is at the surface during July and August. Every indication is that problem will be particularly bad this year. With SAPPI’s (South African Pulp and Paper Industries Ltd.) proposed new “Sebago Watershed Management Model” under consideration as a function of the 30-year re-licensing requirement for the Eel Weir Dam (which controls the water level of Sebago Lake), low water in summer may well become the norm in future. (See: http:// I am writing to ask that anyone interested in the long-term health and continued enjoyment of Muddy River get out and express your feelings to the owner of the slalom course. Perhaps en masse, bring a friend! He is out there first thing every weekend morning and on most weekday evenings. Something needs to be done before it’s too late! Jim Turpin Muddy River, Naples

Berkowitz chastised

times can suggest people for appointment to these committees. Does he know everything about every potential appointee, and should he “bare all” about citizen volunteers publicly? If he knows someone professionally whose expertise would be helpful, does he dismiss them because they might not be a popular choice? I have seen via each televised selectmen’s meetings and every town meeting that I’ve had the opportunity to watch, a professional who does his job extremely well. Mr. Berkowitz is thorough to a fault; he is honest with news and information that is good and bad; he makes decisions based upon thorough research and all available facts; he is devoted to do this most difficult job for what I’m sure is not a lot of money – he’s a most effective CEO without the high salary. I’m sure local developer Mark Lopez and Mr. Zaidman are doing much for the economic well being of Bridgton in spite of their personal business dealings and their means of earning a living. Could another trained professional help with the selection process for a new town planner/economic development director, and could he separate his business interests? Did he choose the questions that would identify the best person to move his project forward? Does this volunteer have the influence to convince others of his candidate? If he could influence the selection process, will the new planner be able to waive those impediments that most affect the project? Or, is it the rules decided by town meeting vote and voter elected board members that determine the outcome? I also am somewhat dismayed that the entire board of selectmen did not offer these same arguments rather than to listen to warrantless criticisms from individuals who may have a horse in the race. Moe Pukulis Bridgton

To The Editor: I was dismayed to read the front-page story recently detailing criticisms aimed at Bridgton Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz regarding his communications with the Bridgton Board of Selectmen. Criticism leveled by committee members serving the town in their appointed capacities. Members who volunteer their time and talents to assist the town in areas that they have some expertise and interest in. And, the townspeople are the beneficiaries. In any small town, individuals who serve may have some appearance of conflict in their service, by virtue of who they are and what they do. It’s unavoidable. If only those people served who had no interest whatsoever in the area of their service, we all would suffer from the lack of experience on many or most town committees. A town manager, after many years of trusted service, is often the source of information regarding those who are interested and qualified to serve.

which shows the nice-looking actor dressed up in lineman’s garb with yellow hardhat and gloves. He says, “Just flip a switch and we are there.” The commercial then shows a large number of linemen grabbing their rubber gloves, yellow hardhats and then running to one of a dozen line trucks. What a crock. Here is reality. On the Fourth of July during a storm, lightning struck in our neighborhood and knocked out a cutout fuse at the end of the road at about 7 p.m. Several people called CMP to report the outage, yet it took CMP 13 hours to refuse the cutout and restore our power — about a 15-minute job including surveying the line for problems. Apparently, the 30 people who live on our road are not important enough to wake up a lineman until the regular starting time the next day. The new line on the TV ad should be, “Just flip a switch and 13 hours later we are there.” This is the type of service you receive when a company subs out nearly all of its repair work. R. David Smith Naples Bay Colony

June N. Sampson FALMOUTH — June N. Sampson, 85, a longtime North Sebago resident, died on July 6, 2012, at a Falmouth health care facility. Born in Everett, Mass., on June 23, 1927, she was the daughter of Oscar H. and Agnes (Hoctor) Elliott. She was raised and educated in Everett and was a 1945 graduate of Everett High School. In 1947, she married George J. Sampson. As a couple, they made their home in Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York, before settling in North Sebago in 1985. She was a member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, in Windham, as well as a member of The Friends of Spaulding Memorial Library in Sebago. A homemaker all of her married life, she enjoyed traveling with her husband and golf outings with the girls. Her true love was spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her husband, George J. Sampson predeceased her on Nov. 10, 2006. She leaves four sons, Thomas E. Sampson of Rumson, N.J., David J. Sampson of Syracuse, N.Y., Robert M. Sampson of Newburgh, N.Y. and James W. Sampson of Ballston Spa, N.Y.; a daughter, Patricia A. Yates of Standish; 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Robert L. Kennie STANDISH — Robert Lewis Kennie, 69, passed away on July 2, 2012, at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough. He was born in Westbrook on Oct. 15, 1942, the son of the late Perley and Lillian Lampron Kennie. He was predeceased by his two sons, Michael and Christopher; a sister, Theresa Walker; and a brother, Lawrence “Pete” Kennie. Robert is survived by his beloved wife of 48 years, Anne; two sons, Shawn Kennie of Windham, and Jamie Kennie of West Baldwin; and four grandchildren. A memorial graveside service was held on Saturday, July 7, at the Steep Falls Cemetery on Route 113. Arrangements are by Watson, Neal & York Funeral Home, Cornish.

Ida S. Wilfong Ida Susan “Pinkie” Hosmer Wilfong died on Saturday, July 7, 2012, in Fryeburg, Maine of cancer. Pinkie Wilfong was born at home in South Weymouth, Mass. on Armistice Day, Nov. 11, 1924. She was the eldest daughter of Allen Fearing and Esther Anna Thompson Hosmer. Mrs. Wilfong was a descendant of British settlers and Revolutionary War soldiers who came to North America during the Great Migration [16201640]. Her nickname of “Pinkie” was given to her by the midwife who delivered her, because her mother dressed her in pink…the name stuck. Mrs. Wilfong was raised on a dairy farm and helped her parents to bottle and deliver milk to their neighbors in South Weymouth. She was a 1942 graduate of Weymouth High School, where she was an honors student, the art editor of the yearbook, and a drummer in the marching band. Mrs. Wilfong had a lifelong love of art and attended art college in Boston. An enduring patriot, Mrs. Wilfong withdrew from college to join in the war effort. She went to work at Bethlehem Steel’s Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Mass. Mrs. Wilfong worked on many ships, including, the aircraft carriers Wasp and Lexington. She never missed a launch. She often said to her children, “We were all in this fight together, and I needed to do my part.” In 1942, Pinkie Hosmer met her future husband at a USO dance before he left for the Pacific Theater. When he returned in 1945, she married Marine Corporal Finley Bickford Wilfong, a combat veteran of the 1st Marine Regiment of the 1st Marine Division. They had seven children, with six surviving. Mrs. Wilfong insisted they raise their children on a farm in Maine. In 1957, they bought an old farmhouse in Stow, and soon after they moved to Western Maine. Mrs. Wilfong could not have been happier. It was where she knew she was meant to live. She loved the people, the mountains and the farm community life of the Cold River Valley. In later years, she worked for the Fryeburg Shoe Shop and for many years as a teacher’s aide for SAD 72 at the Sadie Adams School in North Fryeburg. It was as a Title 1 Aide that she met and mentored a new generation of friends. Mrs. Wilfong was always entrepreneurial. Over the years she owned a gift shop, sold ice to campers in Evan’s Notch, vegetables from a card table on the front lawn and Christmas ornaments that she designed and crafted. She was a wonderful mother, a self-reliant, liberal-minded and decent member of the community and she will be missed. Mrs. Wilfong leaves behind sons James and wife Valerie, Gary and wife Joan, Scott and wife Eileen, Allen and wife Roberta, Russell and wife Denise; and a daughter Susan Stetson and husband Mark. She also leaves several grandchildren, Amy, Andy and wife Snow, Joshua and wife Deana, Kimberly, Liza, Gregory and wife Michele, Christian, Timothy, Tess and husband Cam, Stephen and Abbe; and great-grandchildren, Wyatt, Garith, Kaitlyn and Piper; a niece Robin Brennan Wiley. Her parents, her husband, a son Richard, her sister Esther Hosmer Brennan and great-grandchildren Hannah and Rock Star preceded Mrs. Wilfong in death. There will be a celebration of Mrs. Wilfong’s life on August 18, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, James and Valerie Wilfong, in Stow. It was her wish to have an ice cream social and no “sad faces” because of her passing. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Harvest Hills Animal Shelter in Fryeburg, ME 04037, or to the Stow Historical Society, PO Box 38, Fryeburg, ME 04037. Arrangements are made with Wood Funeral Home, Fryeburg. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at

Is it a tax or not?

(Continued from Page D) constitutional republic, or isn’t it? Are we governed under the rule of law, or aren’t we? Article I empowers a legislative branch to write law. Article II empowers an executive branch to carry out the legislation. Article III empowers a judicial branch to ensure the Constitution is adhered to. Roberts overstepped. He’s not empowered to rewrite legislation. There are reports from both left and right that Roberts switched his vote at the last minute because he was worried about what media and Democrat criticism would do to the image of his court and to his legacy. If those reports are true, we’re screwed. We have a chief justice whose decisions are not based on the Constitution. For as long as he is the fifth vote on vital constitutional issues, we will not be a constitutional republic. Shrewd Democrats structured this penalty bill, I mean tax bill, I mean Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, so as to manifest benefits first and penalties/taxes last — so that makes it difficult to repeal. It may be that the Tea Party will reinvigorate the voters and elect a Republican Senate, a Republican president, and retain a Republican House. It may happen that they’ll introduce a repeal. It’s a long shot

that it’ll go all the way through the process though. It’s more likely that government takeover of health care will continue. What will that look like? I have a pretty good idea. During one summer a few years ago, I was stopped every day for two weeks by a woman with one of those turn-around, stop/ slow signs on Route 5 here in Lovell. I’d wait in a line of cars until she turned the sign around. Then I’d proceed slowly past several orange, state trucks and a dozen or so men standing around talking while one of them occasionally operated a machine that was cleaning out the drainage ditch beside the highway. During two of those days, a small, private, local business was paving a driveway near where I was stopped. It was a frenzy of activity as a few former students laid, graded and packed a gravel base the first day — then put down a layer of pavement the second day. It looked great and it still does. The state crew took two weeks on a job that should have taken a day with half the workers and equipment. What’s going to happen to our small, private hospitals and clinics when the federal government takes them over? You already know, don’t you?

Misusing words

(Continued from Page D) more intellectual than a person who bites off the heads of live chickens for entertainment fell on her deaf ears. My daughter was entertained for the rest of the evening by my lack of knowledge about the word I had been using rather frequently. Apparently, her mother is just a “dork” who consumes chickens while their hearts are still beating by biting off the heads of those birds. Totally gross! That is probably not the lingo my child’s era would use to describe such an act. Actually, “geek” is more in line with people who are super savvy with a computer. Therefore, “geek” doesn’t work for me any better than “dork” did. Yeah, I am so not a geek. A long time ago, I hung out with a crowd that worked for The Anchorage Times and we prided ourselves on our lack of attachment to technology. The people I hung out with laid claim to the mountains during the day and the words in a newspaper that went to press at midnight. Therefore, here in southern Maine, I have decided to revert back to a long-held selfreference: I am a “word nerd.” In fact, Word Girl suits me and mine just fine. Give me a battle with Redundant Woman (my alter ego) any day! Yeah, I am all done with being a dork. Apparently, according to my recent consultation with the dictionary,

I have been most kindly referring to myself as a male body part that I did not intend to refer to myself as. Get out your dictionaries, ladies and gentlemen. While you are fetching those heavy books, don’t use words to which you do not know the meanings. In other words, learn from my mistakes. So, without further ado, let us shift politely into the topic of patriotism. How did the Fourth of July form in America? Was it not celebrated for a while, and then, dropped from our calendars? When did it become a national holiday? What I am asking is: Exactly when and why did we, as Americans, start celebrating this date? Was it the arrival of our European ships on this continent? Was it the time period that our ancestors said they were all done with paying taxes to a government so far away? Was it the day in 1776 that a group of prominent men signed a piece of paper? Or, was it the absolute end of the Revolutionary War, when the Americans — who had been billed as the underdogs — rather at the surprise of a worldwide audience beat the well-endowed English? Please, remind me to make certain I do not let my PBS (Public Broadcasting System) subscription lapse. Otherwise, how will I know the answers to these and many more questions?



CASCO — Thomas E. Quinn, 49 of Meadow Road in Casco, passed away on July 3, 2012 after a brief illness. Thomas was born in Portland on May 6, 1963 to James “Gus” and Elizabeth (DiMillo) Quinn. Thomas attended Portland schools and graduated from Portland High School in 1982. Tom was an active member of his community, giving freely of his time and caring. He enjoyed skiing and shared his love for the sport by teaching skiing lessons for 18 years for the Lake Region Pleasant Mountain Ski Club. He was a member of the board of the Greater Bridgton Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce for many years. He was a regular supporter of Lake Region High School Project Graduation, organizing a pancake breakfast fundraiser during Casco Days for many years. Tom loved gardening and cooking, much to the benefit of his family and friends. He was an avid outdoorsman. His favorite place to be was at camp in Sumner with his sons and camp buddies. Tom enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience last October, traveling to Oregon to hunt elk. He proudly returned with a five to six-point elk. Tom loved to tell stories. The trip provided the raw material for hours of stories. Tom was employed at Hancock Lumber for the past 26 years. He worked at the North Windham, Casco, Bridgton and North Conway locations. Tom is survived by his wife of 28 years, Maureen (Konon) Quinn; his beloved sons, Anthony and Nathan; his parents of Portland; his sisters, Jeanna Best, Joanna Kwieraga, Cathy Rice, Dianne Chapman and Liz Minervino; his brother, Jimmy Quinn; many nieces and nephews; as well as great-nieces and great-nephews, all of whom he adored. A celebration of Tom’s life was held on Saturday at Hall Funeral Home, 165 Quaker Ridge Road, Casco. A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Tom’s name to: Camp Sunshine, 35 Acadia Rd., Casco, ME 04015.

William B. Schneider

FALMOUTH — William B. Schneider, 22, of Falmouth, died suddenly on Friday, July 6, 2012 when a car in which he was a passenger struck a tree in Naples. He was born in Portland on June 21,1990 to Judith West and Bernard F. Schneider. Will was raised in the Town Landing neighborhood of Falmouth Foreside and had relocated to Naples just this past year, where he was a proud and valued staff member of the Black Bear Café. While attending school in Falmouth, Will was a strong butterfly swimmer for the swim team and a lacrosse long sticker.  He was a cocaptain of his high school football team. Will served as a Boy Scout in Troop 93 and as a volunteer in the Falmouth Fire Department Foreside Company. Will was drawn to culinary service and spent time in the fine professional kitchens of the Portland Yacht Club, Hot Suppa and Walter’s, and most recently the Black Bear Cafe. He also enjoyed volunteering at the Portland Soup Kitchen. Will attended Southern Maine Community College. Will learned to swim and to fish in Casco Bay and on Norway Lake. He spent as many summer days as possible at his grandparents’ camp in Norway. He had a passion for music, movies and electronic games. A big open heart and an extremely generous nature were hallmarks of Will’s personality and treasured by his many friends. He is survived by his parents, Judy and Barney; his older sister Becky; grandparents David and Suzanne West of Norway; grandmother Margaret Schneider of Cranford, N.J.; and a large and loving extended family, which includes 13 first-cousins and many adoring aunts and uncles. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 14, 2012 at 11 a.m. at Falmouth Congregational Church, 267 Falmouth Road, Falmouth. In lieu of flowers, donations in William Schneider’s memory may be made to the Culinary Arts Program, Southern Maine Community College, South Portland.

Celebrating 34 years of service!

(Continued from Page D) that you have given me and the library. Perhaps, I will really see you at the library! Emily Fletcher Fryeburg


To The Editor: I’ve read several articles recently in this newspaper that leave me perplexed about how code enforcement and police procedures work in Bridgton. I have spent considerable time in the Cottage/Fowler/

Walker Street area. The complaints that have been reported are valid and I assure you that no one is crying wolf. I suppose we also could talk about skunk in the grass, crafty as a fox and Chicken Little too but that is off the subject. Residents of that area have made many attempts over the years to resolve the slumlord and noise issues etc. within the neighborhood without success. In fact, a number of residents have received threats of retribution. I believe those threats have been reported to the police. So, to suggest that neighbors should take further action related to this themselves sounds simply dangerous. Would they then be accused of harassment and



Directory vigilante justice, or worse yet, subject themselves to bodily harm? Code enforcement recently said in the paper that a house on Walker Street had been condemned previously. Yet, code enforcement is aware that people live there now and there are still complaints that it is substandard. According to the article, code enforcement has not done an inspection and issued a permit for occupancy since it was condemned. Code enforcement or some replacement agency needs to step up and do that immediately. Code enforcement should also inspect and verify that any apartment in that area has been set up legally and correctly under code guide-

I read something like that I feel the need to respond. To call the police, or not call the police, that is the question. I live in the neighborhood that the article was talking about (Cottage, Walker and Fowler Streets). Actually, I have lived in my house for 25 years. At least 20 of those 25 years have been somewhat of a nightmare between excessive noise, drugs, speeding traffic and other activities that would be considered illegal. So, why do I stay here?

Opinions (Continued from Page D) thing suspicious or excessive? Well, after last week’s article, where is the incentive to do that? I pay my property taxes as well as anyone else in this town, therefore I feel that myself and all my neighbors are entitled to some form of quality of life. Complaints that have been called in were legitimate complaints. Another thing to think about is that there are some people that live here, including myself, who have health problems where excessive noise can cause serious symptoms to flare. I have a chronic migraine disorder and fibromyalgia, so anyone who has experienced this knows what can happen. For those of you that do not, use your imagination. That being said, how is it determined what level of noise is unacceptable? If it’s ruining your quality of life then it’s a problem. We support each other here as a neighborhood and we are all intelligent, hard working people up here who deserve peace and quiet like anyone else. Enough is enough. Julie Harmon Bridgton


To The Editor: As a resident of Fowler Street (Bridgton), I am shocked that the police chief could unjustly label a respected member of our community as the “boy who cried wolf.” Really? Concerned about “quality of life?” What about the quality of life rights of the community members, whose rights are being disrespected repeatedly by these nuisance neighbors? Take a look at these neighbors that have time to infringe on the quality of life rights of others. They have the time because they don’t work and are supported by the state — we, the taxpayers. The “boy who cried wolf” is a valuable friend, neighbor and community member respected by all who know him. He deserves an apology from Chief of Police (Kevin) Schofield. If the “wolf” was taken care of, there would be no need for the “cry.” Debbie Nangle Bridgton

Mr. Neutral

believe they know who this person is that the chief is talking about and have nothing but great things to say about this individual. I have not met this person myself nor spoke with the individual, however I hear about the awareness and concerns this individual has brought to the public’s attention. The determination of this person, along with a large group of citizen supporters, are trying to better Bridgton and the quality of life for all who work and live in Bridgton. I hope the chief’s comment will not discourage anyone from continuously reporting disturbances and public nuisances to the police. Not everyone has the personality to confront someone about poor behavior that affects the neighborhood and welfare of the town. I believe the chief of police’s approach to the disorderly house ordinance, and concerns of the taxpaying citizens along with his unprofessional comment, leaves me with the feeling we traded our old police chief for his twin brother. Chief, you owe this “boy who cries wolf,” along with the rest of your towns citizens, an apology. Furthermore, you can’t keep playing Mr. Neutral and expect taxpaying citizens and town officials to stand behind you and your officers. If you have a complaint called in about disorderly conduct and when

an officer arrives to find the conduct has discontinued, you can’t just assume it was not happening. After talking with several people in town whom have called in complaints from the locations you pointed out in last week’s article, I am under the impression the Bridgton Police are not always too quick to arrive on location, and in some cases, the disorderly conduct has been going on for a while before the call is even placed. It only takes one bad egg in a dozen to ruin the entire carton. Think before you speak and think of the good citizens before you. James Smith Harrison

Well done

To The Editor: I went to Bridgton on July 3 for the first time for the fireworks display. My cousin and I met over in Bridgton, ate supper, walked around, listened to the music, saw people that I hadn’t seen in awhile, and just had a good time. The Bridgton Community Center did a great job with the whole event. The vendors were all raising money for charities, and all of the food looked good. The fireworks were awesome and lasted quite a long time. Very well done. You could tell that everyone was having a good time. By the time my cousin and I got to our vehicles, we were already planning to come back next year.

helps. In ruling as he did, Justice Roberts acted as a genuine conservative. By definition, a conservative seeks to conserve the best of what presently exists, and that’s exactly what the decision did. In contrast, the four dissenters — Justices Scalia, Thomas, Kennedy and Alito — voted as reactionaries, reacting furiously against what exists and attempting to drag us backward to an earlier time. Had the Affordable Care Act been overturned, we would not have gone back to square one; we would have gone back to square minus25. The American health-care system would have been left in even sorrier shape than it was when President Obama took office. LETTERS, Page 12D


To The Editor: Just when I had decided that nobody with an ounce of common sense remained on the Republican far right, Chief Justice John Roberts proved me wrong. With his decision upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, Justice Roberts showed that, at least now and then, he could break the shackles of knee-jerk right-wing dogma and do what is best for the United States.

reacted, as they usually do, with apoplectic fury. Within hours, websites sprang up demanding Roberts’ impeachment. Bloggers called him a traitor and a socialist. Rush Limbaugh bellowed, “Our freedom of choice just met its death panel.” Later, he implied that Justice Roberts had been bribed! Michael Savage suggested Justice Roberts’ mind had been addled by epilepsy medication. Sen. Rand Paul stated, “Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘unconstitutional,’ that doesn’t make it so.” While railing against the decision, Gov. Paul LePage compared the Internal Revenue Service to Hitler’s Gestapo. Ignorance isn’t necessary to become a right-winger today, but it sure

Lakes and loons define our natural surroundings Bird Watch by Jean Preis News Columnist

(Continued from Page D) Loons are true water birds. Strong legs, located far back on the body, enable them to swim underwater like a torpedo to catch fish, but make walking on land almost impossible. Nests are built on a low spot right at

the edge of the shore where the adult, if threatened, can escape by sliding off directly into the water. When a chick hatches the parents take it into the water within about an hour, but if they are incubating a second egg, or if the weather is severe, they

will take the new chick back to the nest temporarily to keep it warm and dry. After that, the chick will not touch land again for several years, until it is old enough to breed. On the water, very young chicks often climb onto the parent’s back or tuck under its wing to get warm, and for protection from predators. The parents feed tiny fish to their helpless, down-covered chicks, that soon gain enough weight and strength after a couple of weeks to dive a few inches and stay under a few seconds. For at least three months, even after the chicks are capable of feeding themselves, the parents

will continue to look after them and feed them. Raising young chicks on a busy lake requires loon parents to be highly alert, and to teach their youngsters to avoid danger. They must guard them from natural predators such as bald eagles, snapping turtles and very large fish. Motorboats, in which the operator may be pulling a water skier or a tube filled with children, can easily strike a loon or a chick if the operator is looking backward rather than forward. Blunt trauma from collisions with watercraft is a major cause of loon deaths in Maine. Even folks out

for a quiet paddle in a canoe or kayak can stress a loon family by trying to get a close look, or by following slowly as the loons swim away. If a loon is stressed or distracted by a curious well-intentioned human, it may not notice predators or speeding boats. If a nest is discovered, and the adult feels threatened, it will slide into the water, leaving the unguarded eggs at risk. Loons are excellent parents. Most of the time, they are capable of protecting their nest, but as my friend’s daughter and grandson discovered, humans can sometimes unwittingly

endanger loons. They had no way of knowing they would disturb a nesting loon, since there had not been a nest there in the past, and because the nest was so well hidden, but since their accidental encounter with the loon they have not gone near the island. To protect the loon family, they are keeping the location of the island and the nest secret, and only watch from a distance through binoculars. After their potentially dangerous accidental encounter, this loon family is fortunate to have such caring neighbors. Jean Preis is a resident of Bridgton.

some to serve as close to combat as they were then allowed, some to honor the sacrifices of their own fathers, brothers, or friends, and some for adventure. Every one of them was dedicated to their country, and volunteered for the Clubmobiles rather than an easier or safer job at home.  The dangers of war were real. During the war, 52 Red Cross women lost their lives, some of them from the Clubmobiles. Their stories are those of a nation at war.  Elizabeth Richardson joined the Red Cross in 1944 after graduating from MilwaukeeDowner College and after a

brief career in advertising. She helped pilot the Clubmobile named Kansas City throughout England, Holland and France, listening to soldiers’ stories while cracking jokes and sharing her own. Two months after V-E Day, Liz’s plane crashed en route to Paris. Liz Richardson, dead at 27, now lies interred at the Normandy American Cemetery. Before she died, she said about her service, “I wouldn’t trade this for anything else.” Those sentiments are shared by Margaret “Margo” Hemingway Harrington of Rye, N.H. Margo, who has family that lives here in Maine, is one

of the few surviving Clubmobile women. She said, “I just got itchy feet, and thought I should be doing something more.” The women of the Clubmobiles touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of U.S. servicemen. The Red Cross alone purchased enough flour to make 1.5 million doughnuts, most of which were served through the windows of a Clubmobile. To honor their memory, 75 years after they were established, the U.S. Senate recently unanimously passed a Resolution that I introduced along with Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) which commends the exemplary

and courageous service of the Clubmobiles, honors those that lost their lives, calls upon historians to not let this important piece of American history be lost, and urges the Red Cross to publically commemorate their stories. Honoring them now is critically important, because only a very few of these women are still alive. Their stories are as vibrant and important to our victory as those of the men who valiantly fought to defend our freedom. It’s important to ensure their story continues to be told so that this important piece of U.S. history lives on forever.

Patriotism, Clubmobile an untold story of World War II Views from Senate by Susan Collins United States Senator

(Continued from Page D) A visit from a Clubmobile was one of the most significant events for a young G.I. in combat far from home, and the women of the Clubmobiles, young women from every single state, were a welcome sight indeed.

These women were trailblazers, every bit as much as the Navy’s Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES), the Women’s Army Corps (WACS), and the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPS). They were young, independent, and patriotic. They joined for a variety of reasons,

The healing power of our natural growing resources

(Continued from Page D) for wounds and insect stings. It speeds the healing of bruises and eases nerve pain. Only the flowers are used, picked when newly opened, staining your fingers maroon. When ready, the oil will be deep red.

I want to mention two more plants that grow everywhere here in Maine: plantain and sweet fern. Most people don’t give plantain a second glance (unless it is to try and get rid of it), but I treasure it and leave several patches untouched so I can harvest as needed. As an infusion or tincture, plantain is an excellent tonic for the kidneys and urinary system, and can help relieve diarrhea. Due to its demulcent and expectorant qualities, plantain can relieve coughs, asthma, and bronchitis. Infused in oil (which is what I do), plantain is and excellent wound healer, aids in the healing of burns and rashes, including eczema and psoriasis. If you get stung, find some plantain, chew it up a bit and apply it to the bite to take the pain away and reduce redness and swelling. Sweet fern is practically a miracle healer for poison ivy

and similar rashes. It grows in similar conditions as St. J’s, and is actually a shrub, not a fern, which is resembles. The scent is unmistakable — piney, resinous, sweet. Ever since I was a child, I’ve just loved the aroma of sweet fern, which can be made into a tea. I read that in times past, it was used to line food baskets for its preservative qualities. For poison ivy, make a strong infusion of the fresh or dried leaves and apply it to the rash often. Or you can make a poultice of the herb and place it on the rash letting it stay there for a while. Personally, I haven’t had poison ivy in years and when I did there was no sweet fern available. However, everyone I’ve advised to use sweet fern has raved about its effectiveness. So give it a try. And just in case, harvest some and dry it to have on hand. Very briefly (and for more

information check out the sources listed earlier): To make infused oils, pick newly opened, unsprayed flowers or herbs. Wilt in a single layer on screen/paper to evaporate excess moisture. Two to three days for “juicy” calendula, hours only for St. J’s, even less for roses. Fill clean jar 2/3 to 3/4 full with flowers (chopped if large like calendula), add oil

to the top (extra virgin olive is excellent), remove air bubbles, cap tightly, place jar in a sunny window, and let steep for four to six weeks. Strain through cheesecloth, squeezing out all the oil. If cloudiness settles on bottom, carefully pour clear oil into another jar. The oil can be used as is or made into healing salves and creams. Regardless of what herbs

or flowers you’re gathering, avoid busy roadsides and fields that may have been sprayed. Know what you’re picking and don’t over harvest, not even the “weeds.” I believe there will come a time when, once again, people will need to know the healing plants, flowers, and “weeds” that grow where we live. What better time than now to start?

FUN, FRIENDS AND FESTIVITIES — This Saturday, July 14th, from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., it’s the fantastic annual Flea Market and Auction Board on the Village Green, 940 Meadow Road (Route 121) in Casco Village. Sponsored by the Casco Village Church United Church of Christ, it’s one of the Lake Region’s most anticipated events of the summer. There will be over 50 vendors, fabulous “fleas” in the market, Auction Board items on which to bid, music, delicious food, the Wing’s ‘N Things Clothes Closet, gorgeous flowers and plants, and hourly drawings. This year’s Auction Board includes a New York City trip, camping packages, gift certificates, rounds of golf, photography, fitness club membership, three hours of on-site tractor work, AAA membership, and many, many other fantastic items. Admission is free; the fun, friends, and festivities endless. troversy over whether Maine should borrow for infrastructure development, was totally misleading. Greece went into debt to pay for things that added no revenue to pay off the debt — indeed with respect to early retirement and other encouragements not to work they reduced their ability to pay. In the case of the United States, borrowing to stimulate economic activity in a time of recession (at the Federal level) can produce revenue to be used to pay the debt — though not at once. It can produce a recovery, even if delayed by headwinds from abroad and at home, after which spending cuts and/or tax increases can be used to raise the funds to pay the debt. That is not what Greece did, Greece borrowed when times were already good to pay for making them (temporarily) even better, and in ways that (to repeat) did not lead to a future ability to repay. The case of Maine is even less like Greece. The point of borrowing for infrastructure is that the benefits of the investment in infrastructure come in over a period of time, hopefully the same period of time in which the costs are paid. A business that borrows to finance an investment that will pay off over 10 years would be acting properly if it borrowed for the investment and planned to pay off the debt

over 10 years. If it happened to have a strong current cash position it might spend without borrowing — but even in that case this might not be the best move. State borrowing for infrastructure is similar. Better roads can lead to more economic activity, which leads to more tax revenue. The same is true for bridges, schools, hospitals, etc. Does anyone think we get more tourism when cars need front-end alignment from driving on our roads? Are firms more likely to build in Maine if their trucks are damaged the same way? How about the shortage of skilled workers with a lack of training

programs? Misspending by building roads in the wrong places, or high cost schools that don’t offer better education will not lead to revenues that can be used to pay for the debt, but these would be errors even if paid for without debt. If the administration of which Mr. Poliquin is a part wants more business growth and private sector jobs, as he and the governor claim, he should recognize that state spending on roads, schools and the rest of infrastructure are required to get jobs and private sector growth. The best time to get infrastructure improvements

done is when the cost of borrowing is low (now — with low interest rates and a good credit rating), when low bids for construction projects are likely (there isn’t much construction and firms are eager for business), and when bad infrastructure is clearly an obstacle to economic activity. Good economic policy is not a matter of saying “never borrow.” It is a matter of knowing when to borrow, and how much, and for what purposes.

Free concert for L.O.O.K. members

SOUTH PARIS — Celebrating their 40th anniversary, Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival returns to L.O.O.K. for the 10th year to present childoriented musical programs. The concert is free to L.O.O.K. participants and their families and open to the public for a small cost. It will take place on Thursday, July 26 at 1 p.m. at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School. This year, the concentration will be “Stories in Music.” Susan Rotholz and Eliot Bailen will create stories in music to entertain and draw the audience into the stories. L.O.O.K. classes will run for two weeks: July 16-20 and

July 23-27. This year, the program offers a full array of classes for children to choose to enrich their summer vacations. Classes include Medieval Castle Life, Recorder Fun, Recipes Around the World, Rockets, Hula Hoop Dancing, Fairy House Building, Magic Card Tournaments, River Science, Chinese, Crazy Olympics and many more exciting topics. In 1991, Mark Otterson and a small group of parent volunteers created the program to create interest and to enrich the experiences of children in the Oxford Hills. The program has grown and gained the reputation for a fun-filled week

of creation, exploration and socialization. Many L.O.O.K. students go on to volunteer in the program and some students have returned to teach classes. This low-cost program offers scholarships to many children to make attendance possible. Last year, the Mark Otterson Scholarship Fund supported children’s tuition with over $1,600. Anyone wishing to donate to the fund may send checks to: Maggie Craig, SAD 17, 1570 Main St., Suite 11, Oxford, ME 04270. For more information about L.O.O.K., please call Cyndy Tinsley at 674-2366. There are many slots in classes still available.
