Walking a tightrope?

Policies in store for sidewalk uses

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Bridgton Selectmen are struggling with the question of just how lenient the town should be in allowing Main Street merchants to use the sidewalks. At their last meeting, the board stopped short of any policy that would impose fees, or fines. But most selectmen agreed that some kind of rules are needed. Ideally, such rules would still allow businesses to use the sidewalks, as long as the use doesn’t get in the way of pedestrians. The debate over sidewalk use began over a month ago, when Mike Tarantino raised concerns over the two café tables and chairs placed on the sidewalk in front of Beth’s Café. Café owner Beth Doonan had received permission from Bridgton Selectmen to create outdoor seating on the side of her 108 Main Street

SINGLE FILE — Concern over café-style seating on the sidewalk in front of Beth’s Café has led Bridgton Selectmen to consider adopting a formal policy governing the use of sidewalks in front of all downtown businesses. building, using two parking spaces in the adjacent parking lot. But questions lingered over whether that permission also included the sidewalk in front, which is

rather narrow. Doonan maintains she has permission. However, when selectmen considered her request, they agreed that outdoor seating “is contin-

gent upon safe use of the lot, and her agreement to make modifications as necessary,” according to the minutes of the Feb. 26 meeting. Rather than focus on any one business, the board asked its planning director, Anne Krieg, to draft a general policy. Krieg proposed fees from $50 to $175 a year for merchant use of sidewalks, whether it be seating, sandwich boards or merchandise. In addition, the policy suggested that violators be fined up to $100 for each offense. Selectman Bob McHatton was quick to respond that Bridgton wasn’t ready for that level of regulation. “When this originally came up, it was because some people were saying it was hard to walk along Main Street” because of obstructions in the sidewalks, McHatton said. “I don’t think we need to regulate this. This is just another issue of taxSIDEWALK, Page A

Loon chick: ‘Pleasant’ surprise By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO — People who live around Pleasant Lake are protective of the recent hatchling from a pair of loons. The loon chick, which is about three weeks old, is the first one to be documented on Pleasant Lake in 35 years. “This year, we are enhanced by having a chick on Pleasant Lake. Never in 35 years have I seen one. It has been seen in the mornings and in the afternoons, with both parents and riding on the back of one of its parents,” said Peter Barber, Pleasant Lake and Parker Pond Association president. “This year, we are lucky. I hope it gets to adulthood. This would be a chance to see the pair mate and raise a chick again next year.” He urged people to look at the chick using binocular lenses, and keeping a distance so as not to distress the loon family. On Saturday, the lakes association held its annual

The guest speaker was wildlife biologist Susan Gall, who is the director of the Protect the Loon project for the Maine Audubon Society. Specifically, common loons were the topic of conversation. Gallo provided basic information about this species of loon found in

Maine as well as some surprising facts. Also, she shared new legislation that will ban the sale and use of lead sinkers that are one ounce or smaller. Additionally, she supplied free tin sinkers and tin jiggers. The common loon spends seven years on saltwater marsh, and then, returns to

its lake of origin. Gallo said many lakefront property owners assume that the pair of loons they see every summer stays together for 20 years or longer. Association members were most surprised to hear that loons pair up for about seven years. “I was devastated to hear that they didn’t mate for life,” an audience member said. “I thought it was the same pair on the lake for 25 years. We named them Frankie and Johnny. I didn’t know one year maybe it was Jane and Johnny.” For the loon, spring is courting season. Prior to ice out, the male loons begin doing flyovers of the lakes, according to Gallo. As soon as open water is available, the loons move into their territories. “In the week or two before they show up here, they are flying overhead, cruising by and checking it out. From the ocean to here is about an hour or so away. They keep checking out what is open — LOON, Page A

Festival: Planting seed in August By Wayne E. Rivet Staff Writer Lucia Terry and Nicholas Chalmers hope to plant a seed this August, which will later bloom into an event that people will make part of their summer festivities. Village Folk Festival is their “shared vision” for Bridgton. After being away from his hometown, Chalmers returned to his old stomping grounds and immediately noticed major “cultural changes.” The library had developed a “courtyard,” where on any given sunny day, chairs and tables are occupied by people of all ages, either surfing the Internet on laptop computers or tablets, or others flipping through pages of their newest release.

JUMP INTO SOMETHING NEW & DIFFERENT — The first Bridgton Village Folk Festival will be a “preview” of things to come down the road. The Festival is Aug. 16. A magnificent theater had replaced a crumbling movie house. An old Army center was transformed into a vibrant community center. A new intown park emerged, complete with a scenic covered bridge

— an example of a community coming together to make a project a reality, as well as creating a monument in memory of a man (Robert Dunning), who held his town close to his heart as a volunteer and public

servant. And, a farmers’ market thrived, bringing many talented individuals to one center, where they could sell their wares to consumers who value fresh products at FESTIVAL, Page A

LOBSTER-MANIA — It was all about lobsters July 12 at Bridgton’s Gallery 302, as the gallery was packed with friends of the arts willing to bid on their favorite crustacean, as crafted by members of The Bridgton Art Guild. Auctioneer Jim Cossey, sporting a lobster hat and lobster claw mitt, came ready for action, assisted by Guild members Judy Alderman, Elna Stone and many other dedicated volunteers. It was a fast-paced, food-filled fun evening, and the nonprofit Guild thanks the community for its support again this year.

Public: What to do with Hall?

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Bridgton residents are being invited to give their opinion about the future of the Old Town Hall on North High Street. Eric Dube of Casco Bay Engineering will be on hand at the Bridgton Municipal Complex next Tuesday, July 23, at 4 p.m. with the sole purpose of hearing what activities residents think should — or should not — take place inside the historic building in future years. Dube’s firm was hired by the town to analyze the structural integrity of the old building as a first step in making needed repairs. But in order to complete that analysis, Dube needs to understand what the public wants to see go on inside the building. Currently the Old Town Hall is used by Bridgton Recreation for pre-softball training, basketball and other high-impact sports. The building is also used for more sedate activities, including voting, town meetings, and organizational meetings. Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz said Dube’s report will ideally include both recommendations for bringing the building up to code and for a more ambitious historic restoration. But the latter project, because of its greater costs, will likely come with a recommendation to discontinue using the buildTOWN HALL, Page A

Chief lays out BFD restructuring By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer The Bridgton Fire Department is in the process of restructuring its chain of command for the first time since 1957. With the retirement in February of Assistant Fire Chief Tim Cook, who played a key role for many years in the department, it became necessary to reassess the leadership structure to improve accountability and efficiency, Fire Chief Glen Garland told Bridgton Selectmen recently. The current structure dates back 55 years, when the town took over firefighting responsibilities from the Bridgton Fire Association. Back then, Garland said, it made more sense to divide up firefighting responsi-

bilities based on geography. Therefore, leadership consisted of a chief, an assistant chief and four district chiefs; the latter personnel were in charge of each of the town’s four fire stations: north, south, west and central. Under the district chiefs currently are nine captains, or one per fire apparatus. In addition, there is one training/safety captain. Under the new leadership structure, the assistant chief position will be eliminated, Garland said. And instead of four district chiefs, there will be three deputy fire chiefs, who will not be tied to a fire station but who will work with Garland on long-term planning and capital budget needs, and “where we’re going as a department,” Garland said.

Now four captains would be assigned to a specific fire station, and they, along with six lieutenants (four at central, one each at south and west stations) would be responsible for the day-today routine responsibilities of keeping the stations in readiness, he said. “We want to look at things more strategically,” said Garland, and he said that with the help of the three deputy fire chiefs, he’ll be able to do so. Garland said he is putting together an interview board comprised of three people from emergency services and one citizen not affiliated with any emergency response services. He expects to begin interviewing for the new leadership positions in late July or early August.

Any firefighter wishing to be considered for any of the positions will need to submit a letter of intent, stating the position they want to interview for, and their qualifications. Garland said he expects that the new officers will take their positions by midAugust. The positions will be for three-year terms, “to allow for some reasonable turnover of positions” and provide for competition for positions as they become available, he said. The stipends for the three deputy chiefs will be $2,760 a year, which translates to around five hours a week at $11 hour. The fire chief’s stipend will remain the same, at $11,068, as will the training officer’s stipend of $1,000.

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer The owner of the Wales & Hamblen building at Pondicherry Square, George McGuire, wants the town’s permission to install a private leach field under the playground next to the Bridgton Municipal Complex. McGuire, whose 260 Main Street property is currently connected to the downtown sewer system, said the leach field would allow him to have his own private septic system. By doing so, he would be able to give back to the town the 1,020 gallonper-day allocation that’s been

approved for his property. The extra capacity could then be used by other businesses that need it, he said. Bridgton Selectmen are skeptical of the idea, and have directed the Wastewater Committee to consider his request and report back. The board is concerned, among other things, about setting a precedent about private use of public land for leach fields. There already is a precedent, however, entered into by the Squeaky Clean Laundromat and the town 20 years ago, which allowed the Portland Road Laundromat to install a leach field on town-owned

land located behind their property. McGuire said in a letter to Code Enforcement Officer Robbie Baker that he would fully restore the small playground following construction of the leach field. Public Works Director Jim Kidder said all of the storm drains in the area run through the playground property, and he wasn’t convinced that an engineer would sanction use of the property for a leach field. Wastewater Committee member Glen “Bear” Zaidman said that a brook originally ran through the

property, and Chairman Ray Turner said another consideration would be the revenue the town’s sewer system would lose if McGuire was allowed to disconnect from the system. “If we grant it, we’ll be opening a can of worms,” said Selectman Bernie King. “This may be the second (request), but what if there’s a third, or a fourth?” Selectman Paul Hoyt also noted that installation of a leach field would perhaps permanently limit what the town would be able to do with the playground property.

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — Naples resident Jay Baily purchased an island on Long Lake in 2001. At one time, the deed allowed the island property owner to moor a boat overnight at the town-owned dock. Since then, the town of Naples has adopted an ordinance forbidding overnight parking at its public docks. That ordinance was put in place to stop people using their boats as floating hotels in an area that was shared space. The existing ordinance limits mooring at town dock to about three hours. “We put this into effect because people were sleeping on their boats. There were issues. The town dock is for

parking their boat and eating on Causeway and then leaving,” Selectman Rick Paraschak said. On Monday, with his deed in hand, Baily made a second request to park his boat at the town dock located next to Sandy’s Flight Deck or to moor at Kent’s Landing. “I only plan to use it three times a year. I don’t want a permanent slip there,” he said The Naples Board of Selectman voted unanimously to uphold the ordinance. One reason is that the board members did not want to set a precedent for overnight mooring at the public dock. “I worry about Kent’s Landing. People are continually parking in the boat parking area. I worry if you let one boat, people will think

they can park their boats there,” Town Manager Derik Goodine said. Additionally, the deed stated that mooring would be allowed on the town dock — if there were no ordinance to the contrary. Bailey said the wording in the deed is such that the clause about parking a boat is subject to regulations or ordinances. Selectman Robert Caron II asked if the landowner should look for the deed prior to the current one. Paraschak answered that Baily’s deed was based on

previous deeds. “It’s subject to rules. That is three-hour parking there,” Chairman Dana Watson said. Selectman Christine Powers looked up from reading the ordinance. “The ordinance is clear that there should not be any boat or craft parked there that would get in the way of the public using the dock,” she said. The board voted, 5-0, to enforce the parking on public dock ordinance as written; and Baily thanked the board for reviewing the matter.

Naples: No overnight mooring

Summer staffing

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO — This summer, the Casco Town Office has been slammed with customers at the front office. The code enforcement officer (CEO) logged 1,200 phone calls last month. He has taken as many as 30 calls a day. With the re-emergence of a mooring ordinance, even more people than usual have paperwork to fill out at the town office. Three employees who qualify for vacation time simply have not been able to schedule it. With an eye on the current administrative budget, Town Manager Dave Morton has recommended a part-time per diem position. The duties would be primarily to assist the town’s CEO. Also, the new hire would be cross-trained to fill in at the STAFF, Page A

Vista flag needs upkeep funding

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES – It is a patriotic landmark. It is the first thing that catches the eye when drivers along Route 302 approach the Causeway from the east. For some commuters, it is a sigh of relief that they are close to home after a long workday. If anyone assumes that the large American flag located on the scenic vista is simply a backdrop, guess again. Anytime it gets tangled or is not at half-staff when it should be or when a windstorm is predicted, citizens alert the Naples Town Office or the Naples Fire and Rescue Department, according to Fire Chief Chris Pond. “I get calls from people asking, ‘Why is it down?’ or saying, ‘It’s not right,’” Pond said. In fact, a phone application was ordered to notify Assistant Fire Chief Jason Pond on which dates the American flag should be flown at half-staff. The Naples Fire Association purchased a smaller version of what is now flying. Volunteers installed that first flag, which measures 15’x25’, in early November 2012, prior to Veterans’ Day. A day before the Fourth of July, a larger flag was hoisted up the pole. The new 20’x30’ flag is made of nylon, instead of polyester. This lightweight material allows the flag to move in the slightest breeze, accord-

ing to rescue volunteer Rick Paraschak. Additionally, the nylon seems to shimmer when it is illuminated by the surrounding spotlights after the sun goes down, he said. “It sparkles at night,” Paraschak said. From the beginning when Old Glory was first lifted skyward, people in the community asked if there was a fund to help with the costs, Paraschak said. According to Pond, in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the Naples Fire Department, the fire association wanted to do something without using taxpayers’ money. “We are taking ownership of this one flag on the Causeway,” Pond said. “And, we’re letting people know they can contact us with donations.” To donate to the maintenance fund for the garrison flag, go to and find the link for “the pride of Naples.” People can donate via computer through PayPal, or can mail checks to the address given. The staff at the Naples Town Office also will accept contributions for the maintenance fund. Already, the smaller flag has had appointments with a seamstress. “We’ve diligently taken down the flag when it’s in need of repair,” Pond said. “It’s beautiful spot. But, it takes a beating from the wind off the lake. It certainly added a nice touch to the Causeway.”

Cats gone wild By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer HARRISON — A big field with a barn provided the perfect environment for a few abandoned cats. Left to their own devises, the cats began to breed and soon the numbers reached a few dozen. Cats have the ability to become pregnant at as young as three months old. In a matter of time, another 30 kittens were ready to be born into the feral cat colony. This is not a factious tale, but a true story that plays out in western Maine and the lakes region, according to Stephanie Mains, the president of the Cat Coalition of Western Maine (CCWM). The real joy for Mains comes from live trapping, taking care of, and releasing feral adult cats back to their original colonies. She takes comfort in knowing that those cats can live out the remainder of their lives — without reproducing more kittens and continuing to contribute to this problem. “We all have such a love for doing this, because we really want to help cats,” she said. “We have been working on a farm in Harrison since early March. They had 25-plus cats. Some of them were pregnant. All but two cats have been captured and fixed. We are still trying to catch those two.”

It is used as a conterrain, like a cove,” Gallo tact call between parents said. “The loons have to and chicks. monitor their boundaries and spend time working with their neighbors.” In addition to territory that encompasses a whole lake or a section of a lake, some loons nest on multiple lakes – in order to catch enough fish to survive. However, birds that have this housing arrangement tend to have the least success in raising chicks, Gallo said. The Maine Audubon does it annual loon count — with the help of thousands of volunteer scientists — on the third Saturday in July. This weekend’s count will mark the 30th year that the Maine Audubon has collected this data. The loon count will take place from 7 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. According to the Audubon’s website, “This early-morning time provides an excellent snapshot of Maine’s loon population.” As far as the mortality rate of loon chicks, it can range drastically from year to year. “With loon chicks, the count goes up and down from year to year. We cannot make rhyme or reason of why,” she said. Even before they hatch from their eggs, the baby loons face many predators including bald eagles, raccoons, mink, and domestic dogs. The loon eggs have a 28-day incubation period, and both parents take turns sitting on the nest. A video recorder captured a nesting pair, and revealed that the female takes the nighttime shift while the male cares for the egg during the day, Gallo said. Sometimes, new hatchings fall prey to big fish or snapper turtles as well as bald eagles, Gallo said. The Maine Audubon does collect the bodies of dead adult loons to determine the most probable cause of death. “Big boats can cause blunt trauma,” Gallo said, adding that canoes and kayaks can also disturb the nest. Another thing that contributes to the death of loons is lead sinkers and lead-based fishing tackle. The loon ingests the sinkers along with gravel on the bottom of lakes. Because loons have an acidic gizzard, the lead gets into the system quickly and they die within a few weeks, Gallo said. The Audubon Society has worked with bass fishermen to create a tackle exchange program. As of September 2013, it will be illegal to use lead sinkers that are one-ounce or smaller. In 2016, the sale and use of lead jiggers will be banned. Gallo said this legislation is a step in the right direction — toward protecting the loon; and loon conservation is in the hands of the inhabitants in the lakes region. “Bald eagles won’t be end of loons in Maine. Fireworks won’t be the end of loons in Maine. Lead sinkers won’t be end of loons in Maine,” Gallo said. But, people can help to protect loons by slowing down their boats, watching out for chicks, and switching to nonlead fishing tackle, she said.

On Tuesday, the Casco Board of Selectmen approved the per diem position for 10 hours a week — as long as the pay stayed within the 2013–14 budget. The position will be permanent. The town will advertise the part-time opening on its website and in local newspapers. According to Morton, the ideal applicant could be a retiree. Definitely, any promising candidate would be “great with people,” he said. Most likely, the nine to 10 hours would be split between three days of the workweek. Other times, the new staff member would fill for a vacationing employee, and then scale back hours afterwards. The town currently has two per diem employees. Neither of those people expressed interest in working more than 20 hours a week. “At least six hours a week would be dedicated to CEO support.

Additionally, volunteers entered the barn, and snagged several newborn kittens. “If the kittens stay too long, they pick up the feral traits really fast. So, the sooner you have hands-on experiences with the kittens, the more quickly they socialize to humans,” Mains said. The kittens are placed in the homes of foster families until they are ready for adoption. Next, the group will turn its attention to a feral cat colony located off Tenney Hill Road in Casco. There, surrounding neighbors have fed the cats and even built small structures for them. However, neighbors do not have the resources or the finances to capture and fix the feral cats. “That is what our job is: To educate people, to get the word out that we are here,” she said. “Some people move and leave their pets behind. It becomes a snowball effect. Don’t up and leave your cat behind when you move,” Mains said.

Krieg said her draft policy recognizes that sidewalks, as public ways, are owned by the residents of the town. “However, as the downtown is (nicely) growing and expanding and is in full bloom this summer,” the interests of all business owners should be considered, the draft policy states. Such business owners would need to first obtain a permit

Krieg said she has been working with the Community Development Committee on the issue, and that its members believe the town can come up with a policy that would allow limited use of sidewalks, based on measurements of available space. The CDC will meet with Krieg to “tweak” the policy, and bring it back for selectmen to reconsider.

Bridge color to stay status quo By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — The color of the Bay of Naples Bridge will remain the same. Plans had been on the table to stain the bridge a sienna brown hue. As recently as two weeks ago, the staining process was being considered. Additionally, bridge staining was one of the bid items in the state contract with the town. However, the Causeway Restoration Committee (CRC) decided to keep the bridge the color it is now. During its bi-monthly meeting on July 10, the majority of the committee

voted in favor of not staining the bridge. The vote was 4-2, with Town Manager Derik Goodine and Bob Caron Sr. opposing the decision. The primary concerns about the staining process were that the high gloss sealant would deter from the natural look that the committee members had hoped to achieve. Also, the job would require pressure washing the surface of the bridge — a task which could damage some of the landscaping that has been planted next to the bridge. Another mentioned disadvantage to staining the bridge is that when lake levels drop, there would

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer CASCO — A state resource protection agency is poised to give Casco $100,000 for projects that preserve drinking water in this community. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will award the town of Casco and Ellsworth $500,000 each. The money is compensation for groundwater that was irreparably polluted by the PortlandBangor Waste Oil site that operated on Tenney Hill Road from the 1960s through the 1980s. This first round of funding (the $100,000 which is now available to be transferred to the town) can be

used for projects that protect sources of drinking water. Some examples would be the renovations of faulty septic systems or substandard fuel tank storage. Another way to use the funding would be the purchase of property where drinking water aquifers are located. The potential projects are applicable “as long as there is a connection in theory. We are taking money for the damage of water quality and protecting water quality somewhere else,” said John James, with DEP’s Division of Remediation. On Tuesday during the Casco Board of Selectmen meeting, a public hearing was held to take comments PROJECTS, Page A

GUEST SPEAKER at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library on Tuesday, July 23 will be author Drew Barton.

Author to speak on changing Me. woods LOVELL — Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will present guest speaker Drew Barton, author of The Changing Nature of the Maine Woods, following the library’s annual meeting on Tuesday, July 23 at 7 p.m. The program will be interpreted in American Sign Language by Margaret Haberman. After a short “State of the Library,” Board President Mary Heroux will present this year’s slate of trustees. After the vote, Mary will welcome author Drew Barton. Barton’s presentation will highlight his recent book, The Changing Nature of the Maine Woods. Mixing photos, readings and descriptions from the book, he’ll present an outline of how the Maine Woods have changed over the past 15,000 years and what they’re likely to be like 100 years from now. The presentation will touch on climate change, the nature of Maine’s pre-settlement forest, ecological diversity across the state and some of Maine’s favorite natural areas. Raised in the mountains of North Carolina, Barton is a forest ecologist and conservation biologist. His research focuses on how forests change over time in response to climate change and natural disturbances, such as fire. His fieldwork has taken him to Costa Rica, Arizona,

Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Maine, and he has published in a wide range of biology journals. He has recently devoted himself to also writing for general audiences, culminating in the release of The Changing Nature of the LOVELL, Page A Tenth Annual

think it is a beautiful bridge just the way it is.” Maine Department of Transportation (MDOT) Resident Engineer Craig Hurd responded recently to the committee’s decision. “Whatever the town wants, I want to make everyone as happy as possible,” he said. “I want the committee and the town to be really satisfied with everything we have done there.” In May, a small crew with the general contractor, Wyman and Simpson, Inc., buffed the surface of the bridge. According to Hurd, this task was completed to even out the seams. Also, the buffing was a one-time requirement, and therefore, won’t be part of a regular maintenance regimen, he said. With the bridge staining off the work list, the construction should be completed in a few weeks, Hurd said. The sealant for the sidewalks has been ordered, and there is still the matter of re-staining some sections of the boardwalk. In related news, the town of Naples received a recognition award from the Greater Portland Council of Governments. Recipients of the award included the CRC, MDOT, and Wyman and Simpson. The award was for best management practices and sound planning and collaboration during the threeyear construction project on the Causeway.

be a noticeable difference between the colored portion and what was not accessible for staining. Architectural Polymers based in Pennsylvania was the subcontractor in charge of staining the bridge. Representatives from that company provided a demonstration of concrete staining for the committee a few years ago. According to CRC Chairman Bob Neault, the purpose of staining the bridge would be “to give it a more aged appearance, like a county-style stone bridge.” “I think the bridge looks wonderful. I think the staining would have enhanced the whole look. But, it looks great the way it is,” Neault said. Most committee members agreed, following about an hour of discussion. “That is such a small part of the project. I would be surprised if anyone called us to task that the bridge was not done this way,” Maggie Krainin said. “This is just a cosmetic thing. It isn’t important to the structure.” When staining demonstrations were provided she was not a big fan of the brown hue, she said. “I’ve always thought that it would be awful. It would be more problematic if it were a different color. There is always going to be discoloration. You will gain a different level of discoloration if you stain it,” she said. “I

Pianist Moore to perform at Brick LOVELL — “Why the heck should we care about Bach?” Keyboard virtuoso Dan Moore will give some interesting answers to that question as he plays, in his words, “too much Bach” (and a good serving of boogie-woogie and jazz) in his concert at Lovell’s Brick Church for the Performing Arts tonight, Thursday, July 18. A favorite with audiences, Dan’s shows draw crowds. Actually, Dan Moore has quite a lot in common with Johann Sebastian Bach. Both, of course, are keyboard artists, and neither has very many letters after his name. Bach was arguably the best organist of his time in Europe; Dan Moore makes much more modest claims, but he’s terrific, too. Both are that unusu-

al and hardy breed, working musicians who make their living through their art: Bach in Leipzig, Moore at the Mt. Washington Hotel, where he has played almost every night of the week since 1999. And both — here’s the kicker — are jazz musicians. What? Bach played jazz? Well, not exactly, says Moore, but there are some powerful parallels. If Bach could sit down with a jazz combo today, he’d know what was going on. In his era (early 18th century) he was a supreme improviser, playing flexibly with keys and chord changes, burying musical jokes and allusions in the midst of his pieces just as jazz players do. He built his works out of the Lutheran hymnal and famous tunes of his times the way jazz musicians work out of their

“fake books” today. Moore is a storyteller, and he spins stories and music and musical stories — a consummate performer. He won’t play “too much Bach.” He’ll mingle Bach and boogie, moving from harpsichord to piano and back again. He’ll show the audience what he loves and why, and intrigue listeners by weaving music of different eras together in a blend that seems casual but builds a clear, vivid portrait of keyboard art. Although he specialized in the organ at the Boston Conservatory, Moore loves the unique qualities of different keyboard instruments and styles, and he plays them all. In his youth he played hymns in Sunday school, but also performed in rock bands, high school musicals, and

LOVELL — Do the children in your household, your family or your neighborhood love music, acting, movement, dance, and song? This opportunity is for them! The Brick Church for the Performing Arts in Lovell will be offering a weeklong musical theater camp for boys and girls six years old and up. Thanks to a generous donation from the Sear Family Foundation, registration in the camp will be free — but only the first 10 children to register can be accommodated. The camp will run from Monday to Friday, Aug. 59. Activities will be varied. Children will be singing and enjoying movement and dancing, but they will also have craft sessions cre-

ating costumes, props, and sets for their scenes. At the end of the week — Friday evening and Saturday afternoon — the children will perform an unforgettable variety show of songs and dance drawn from a musical that will be chosen to suit the ages and interests of the children enrolled in the camp. Snacks and drinks will be provided each afternoon. Director of the camp, Lily Bayrock, has extensive experience working with children and with music. Since the age of 18, she has performed in musical theater, opera, and light opera in college (Skidmore and New York University) and thereafter in theaters in New York City. She has directed shows and

assisted with theatrical projects. Recently, she codirected and performed in One Grain More, a hilarious food-allergy-themed parody of Les Misérables (available on YouTube at Assisting Lily with the Lovell camp will be Chloe Johnson, a young dancer who has worked with children in various activities including movement and gymnastics. Camp sessions and performances will take place at the Brick Church for the Performing Arts, 502 Christian Hill Road in Lovell. Camp will meet from noon until 4 p.m.; performances, free and open to the public, will take place on Friday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 10 at 2

(Continued from Page A) about what is being referred to as a natural resources damage compensation plan. According to James, the town can use up to 10 percent of the money to set up a distribution center. “People need to know that there is no definite plan at the time,” Town Manager

Dave Morton said. “But, we’ll use (this monetary) resource to help protect groundwater like where people have failing septic systems. Or, we’d be looking at the acquisition of areas where there are significant water aquifers,” he said. “So that people know moving forward as (this fund-

ing is) being used, we will check with the DEP. Also, there is an annual reporting mechanism,” Morton said. The money can be used on residential property as well as town-owned or public parcels, James said. Also, the town will not be required to adhere to a time frame or set deadline in which to utilize the funding, he said. Because there is ample time to review possible uses for the funding, the Open Space Commission suggested gathering information about which drinking water sources are highest priority. The commission recommended working in conjunction with Portland Water District and other area water conservation groups.

Perhaps the most unusual item in his musical resumé: 10 years as a circus musician, touring New England with the Shriners’ circus. “The greatest fun,” he remembers, “was improvising while the good clowns were doing their shtick.” Moore will be presenting his own wonderful brand of eclectic keyboard story (though without clowns) at the Brick Church for the Performing Arts on Christian Hill Road in Lovell tonight!

Concerts at Noble House

Innkeeper Cindi Hooper of the Noble House Inn, a bed and breakfast at 81 Highland Road in Bridgton, is hosting a series of concerts this summer called Saturday Sounds at Noble House Inn. For their first concert July 11, they brought in Broken Fences, an acoustic folk duo. “We love the idea of opening our home to outstanding touring artists, who perform in a cozy, intimate setting,” said Hooper, who is part of the online “Concerts In Your Home” community, by which touring artists can link up with hosts and do extra concerts while on tour. “House concerts are an amazing way to enjoy live music with friends and connect with the artist in a more personal way.” The first concert was in the parlor, but

their second concert, on Saturday, July 28, will be on the lawn, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The concert will feature another acoustic folk duo, only ramped up a bit, that of Ken Yeats and Brian Dunne. Yates studies songwriting at Berklee College of Music, and it was there that he developed his skills as a songwriter, releasing his first CD, The Backseat EP. Suggested donation to attend a Noble House Inn concert is $10-$15. Upcoming concerts include Heather Pierson, on Aug. 31; Danielle Miraglia, on Sept. 14; Bruce Mandel, on Sept. 28; Carolyn Currie, on Oct. 12; Robin O’Herin Acoustic Blues and Gospel, on Nov. 2; and Carey Murdock, on Dec. 7.

CIVIL WAR FIELD BAND to join the Sebago Days annual parade. The parade starts at 10 a.m. this Saturday, July 20.

Concert in the Park

FRYEBURG — When Henry Neddenriep, or “Rip” as he’s known locally, read about Fryeburg’s summerlong celebration of its 250th birthday, he just knew he wanted to be a part of it in some way. “Music is my gift to give, and I wanted to do something to add to the celebration of Fryeburg, so I called Donna Woodward and offered a night of music,” he said. That gift will be shared on Friday, Aug. 2, when Rip’s band, Rollins, Tyoe and Hobson, give a free concert in Bradley Park from 6 to 7:30 p.m., as part of the town’s First “Frye” Day Celebration. Henry Neddenriep “Rip” is a native of Fryeburg, graduating Fryeburg Academy back in the 60’s before heading off to the Vietnam War. After three tours of duty he returned to Maine to live his life and do what puts a smile on his face, which is playing music. Rip now lives in Stow with his wife and three children, and continues to bring enjoyment to people through his music, playing percussion with fellow band members Chris Rollins on bass and Jerry Hobson on guitar. If you are from the Mount Washington or Western Maine area, then you have probably heard the sounds of Rollins, Tyoe, and Hobson. These three have been playing together in variations of bands for several decades, and have been booked to play in most all of the local music venues at one time or another. One of the most resounding comments made about these

musicians, other than their large offerings of tunes, is the quality of their harmonies. Their three vocals blend together for an amazingly full and rich delivery of harmony. First “Frye” Day will include a free community lunch from Poland Spring, from noon to 2 p.m.; a radio remote broadcast by WMWV

from 1 to 4 p.m.; and street vendors and artisans from 2 to 6 p.m., followed by the concert from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Bring your picnic, family, friends and neighbors, spread out a blanket or bring your lawn chairs and relax or dance, as Fryeburg continues to celebrate its 250th birthday.

‘Music Man’ opens

STANDISH — Schoolhouse Arts Center presents Meredith Willson’s The Music Man starting tonight, July 18 through Aug. 4. Traveling con man “Professor” Harold Hill arrives in River City, Iowa intending to hit the town with his standard scam: offering to equip and train a student marching band, but skipping town with the money because he has no musical talent. But his plan goes awry when he falls in love with the town librarian, whom he must divert from exposing him while he inadvertently and unwittingly instills in the town a love of music. Shows are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m. For reservations, call 642-3743 or go to Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for seniors and students. The theater is located off Route 114.

Church yard sale

The First Congregational Church of Bridgton’s annual All Church Yard Sale will take place Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The sale will be held rain or shine and will be set up behind the church, located at 33 South High Street in Bridgton. There is plenty of parking behind the church near the sales tables. This is no ordinary yard sale — you can also enjoy a terrific breakfast or lunch both days at the sale. “We want to encourage everyone to come to the yard sale,” said Trustee Joe DeVito. “Whether you’re looking for a great bargain or a great breakfast or lunch, we want to see you at the sale. Our food — breakfast sandwiches, hot dogs, ice cream — is truly delicious.” According to DeVito, lots of great merchandise has been donated for the church’s largest fundraiser, including partial estate sale items. Books, antiques, and sports equipment are examples of other items available for sale. Proceeds of the yard sale benefit the church’s outreach programs like Jeanette’s Closet, where local families can find no-cost clothing, and the Adopt a Child for Christmas program, that last year benefited nearly 200 Bridgton children. If you’d like to donate good, gently used items to the yard sale, you can bring them to the church on Thursday, July 25 after 9 a.m., or contact DeVito at, 647-9578 or Jeff Frey at 671-2678, or the church office at 647-3936. Pickup of large, highly saleable items is available. (Please no TVs, computers or other electronics.) BUILDING 40+ YEARS IN THE LAKES REGION AREA

‘Flora’ is Rte. 5 traffic stopper

By Cheryl Baker Special to The News LOVELL — The traffic-stopper of Lovell is at it again. After her bride and groom scarecrows of 2010 created the first real traffic jam ever seen in Lovell off Route 5, Janice Davis brought Elvis to life as her encore performance in 2012. The Happy Couple alone were enough to get local tongues wagging about how wonderful it would be to hold an annual scarecrow contest in their little town and Janice was the obvious choice to orchestrate such an event. While Janice was pleased that her creations had been enjoyed by so many, she had no interest in organizing the contest. “It’s been a lot of fun watching people stop and take pictures of the scarecrows,” she said. “They’re always smiling and pointing.” But, for her, the idea of organizing an event and being yoked to a timeline is not appealing. Like the quintessential, temperamental artist, she does not want her creations to be scheduled or to

become more like work and less like works-of-art. Nor does she feel that she could summon her creative spirit at will, since, as she says, “It seems to come and go when it feels like it.” Well, it has recently felt like visiting again. Motorists are once more stopping to gawk — this time at a willowy, lacy-winged fairy (complete with a mini-unicorn sidekick) scarecrow. Under her crown of flowers, Flora (as she has been named) looks toward the rising sun as if beckoning its rays to come and nourish her garden. Her emerald-green gown and golden tresses flutter in the gentle breezes that sweep over her growing kingdom of cucumbers, squash, and tomatoes. Fauna, her petite-sized unicorn, prances at her side, his gleaming, white coat and silver horn refracting the morning sun into a million shards of crystal. His ankle-high view of their green domain allows him to keep constant vigil against ground level intruders. To some, an over-grown fairy and under-grown unicorn may not seem all that scary,

FLORA AND FAUNA have caught the attention of motorists traveling along Route 5 in Lovell. The scarecrow was created by Janice Davis. but imagine if you are a beadyeyed crow ready to dive-bomb an ear of corn, when a sudden gust of wind breathes life into the garden below. All at once, your tasty snack is hidden beneath a flowing gown, fluttering wings, floating tresses, and what looks like a white cat holding a silver sword (and was that a whinny you just heard?) To be sure, any garden invader would consider Flora and Fauna a force to be reckoned with. To others, they are lifesized reminders that beauty is everywhere, and when func-

Hall options (Continued from Page A) ing for high-impact sports that are more likely to cause damage to the structure. Some of the high-impact sports, particularly basketball, have been going on in the building for many generations, and some in town are reluctant to give up that traditional use. Prior to meeting with the public, Dube will spend the afternoon examining the building, from foundation to roof, Berkowitz said. Casco Bay Engineering won the contract for the work with a low bid of $11,872. Dube’s report may also figure in any future plans to build an entirely new facility for town recreational activities. After meeting with the public, Dube will report to the Board of Selectmen that evening, during the public hearing portion of the meeting that begins at 6 p.m. The public is also invited to attend the hearing, and make their comments known at that time.

(Continued from Page A) a reasonable cost. “There are a number of incredibly talented people in this area. They’re in nooks and crannies, hard to find, but they’re out there. We want to bring them all together,” Chalmers said. “A lot of creative force out there.” Chalmers and Terry hope to tap into that unique “creative force” in the form of a folk festival. Every neighboring town seems to have their own “fair” week. Last week, Harrison held Old Home Days. This week, it is Sebago’s and Lovell’s turn. Next week, Casco will hold its town festival for the 78th time. Several attempts have been made in previous years to put Bridgton on the summer fair map, but results have been somewhat mixed — good intentions, good efforts but low turnouts. So, Terry and Chalmers plan to take a different approach. The focus will be on locally-grown food, local crafts, educational and participatory demonstrations and homegrown music talent. “We want to celebrate the area’s unique charm through its history and people and their many talents and skills. We don’t want to be another ‘Old Home Days.’ We want to do something different — homegrown, homemade, a day of music,” Terry said. “We want to focus on local artisans, farmers and craftspeople, who can provide hands-on demonstrations for everyone — young and old.” Because planning started a bit late, Terry and Chalmers said Village Folk Festival 2013 will simply be a “taste” of what’s to come. “We’re starting small with the expectation of growing the festival year after year,” Chalmers said. The Village Folk Festival is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 16 from 3 to 10 p.m. on Depot Street — rain or shine. A portion of the street will be closed off to vehicle traffic. “The big missing piece this year will be vendor booths. We’re trying to get as many people as we can. We started late in the planning season, and many people are already committed this year to other events,” Terry said. The “smaller scale” 2013 lineup will include a “garden-to-table” cookout featuring local meats and vegetables, as well as a bean recipe contest. Several local restaurants have already signed on including Campfire Grille, Black Horse Tavern, Olde Mill Tavern, Depot Street Tap House, Standard Gastropub, Tom’s Homestead and Ricky’s Diner. Bean entries will likely be judged by members of the Bridgton Board of Selectmen. There will also be a silent auction. Musicians interested in performing on the Depot Street stage should contact Linda Cooper at lintcoop@ For those home garden enthusiasts, farmers, craftspeople and artists interested in being part of the festival, contact Lucia Terry at or Nicholas Chalmers at

Ah, it’s Old Home Days time again, Friday and Saturday, July 19-20. Our Grand Marshals will be Irene and Al St. Germain, who moved to Lovell in 1997. Irene had been working as a secretary at the Merrimac Education Center, and Al as an industrial engineer with Polaroid. In retirement, they started a new life, one of volunteering. Her secretarial skills served her well when she started working for the library and took over the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Arts and Artisans Fair. For eight years, she has chaired the event, and sought to improve the quality of the wares of the vendors. Helping out at the Lovell Historical Society, Irene started to record all the graves in Lovell, and went about documenting them on a map for location on an Excel database. Al didn’t slow down either. He was always a backup for Irene at the Arts and Artisans Fair, doing the money. So, being a numbers guy among many of his endeavors, he enjoyed doing taxes for folks. As one of the original members of the cribbage group, he keeps all the statistics every week. He’s involved with

Lovell by Ethel Gilmore-Hurst Lovell Correspondent 925-3226 the Kezar Trailbreakers as its treasurer, and served on the Lovell Budget Committee and the Brick Church for the Performing Arts, the VFW and the Dave Mason Tennis Tournament. You notice, it’s all in the numbers. You’d think this would tire any two people out, but Al and Irene take off now and then, leave Lovell to rewind, roaming the world. Have fun, Irene and Al, it’s your day. Don’t forget the Chicken/ Pig Roast at 5:30 p.m. Friday, July 19. Old Home Days is a day of fun, roaming the field to see what there is to see, eating and listening to the sounds of The Blue Willow Band. There are lots of activities planned for young and old alike. There’s the dunk tank, lollipop youth race, games, Jell-O eating contest and mini golf. Hungry?

There will be hot dogs, sno cones, shortcakes, hamburgers, popcorn, ice cream and fried dough. Make sure you visit the Lovell Fire Department’s Open House. The Lewis Dana Hill Memorial Library will have a booth with lemonade and goodies. The Lions Club will be serving up hot food, just get in line. There is so much to do and see, so have fun. As always, the Old Home Days Committee does a fantastic job for the Lovell community. The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will hold its annual meeting on Tuesday, July 23 at 7 p.m. There will be a short “State of the Library” presentation, and then Board President Mary Heroux will present the slate of trustees for a vote. At the conclusion of the

vote, Drew Barton, the speaker for the evening, will be introduced. Drew’s topic for the night will come from his recent book The Changing Nature of the Maine Woods. A forest ecologist and conservation biologist, his presentation will describe how the Maine woods have evolved over the last 15,000 years, and what they will be like in the next 100 years. Again, the program will have Margaret Haberman interpreting in sign language. The Greater Lovell Land Trust Wednesday talk at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library on July 23 will be about “Monarchs, Milkweed, Mimicry and Migration.” Speaker Don Bennett will discuss the monarch butterfly and those who try to mimic them. All programs start at 7:30 p.m. The Thursday, July 25, Greater Lovell Land Trust hike will be a fun event, trying to find something in nature for every letter in the alphabet. The walk takes place in the Heald-Bradley Pond area. Meet at the Slab City parking area at 10 a.m. for the walk, which runs until noon. And don’t forget the water, bug spray and great shoes.

The numbers have dropped a bit, but those die-hard lady golfers were still at it on July 11. The Greenie Pool was won by Mary Sayles, and the Chip In by Sally Treadwell. The team of Barbara Radasch, Sandy Estes and Sally Treadwell took first place. Second place went to Mary Sayles, Alma Richards and Betsy Heubner. For those who took a form to fill out for my future book, you can drop them off at the library, mail them to me at P.O. Box 162, Lovell, ME 04051, or drop them off at 297 Christian Hill Road. For those who know about my son Allan’s medical problem, he came through the surgery fine. The Lovell Volunteer Fire Department is busy with the open house at the Old Home Days and two planned exercises. On July 17, they oversaw a LP gas burn, with help from B&L Oil. The state donated props for this event. Then, on Monday, July 22, there will be a fire burn, with help from two instructors from the state. These men deserve much praise and credit for their performance when the building in the village burned down.

Scribner’s Homestead and Sawmill tours this Saturday

SLL STRING QUARTET — The Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival’s 41st season continues on Tuesday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Deertrees Theatre in Harrison. Performing in Passioni di Italia are long-time SLLMF musicians Movses Pogossian, Varty Manouelian, Eliot Bailen and Laurie Kennedy. The chamber music series runs for five Tuesday evenings through Aug. 13. SERVING BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER DAILY BIGGEST & BEST OMELETS AROUND!


HARRISON — The next scheduled tours of the Scribner’s Sawmill and Homestead will be Saturday July 20, from 1 to 4 p.m. This will be the last weekend for tours prior to Scribner’s Mill’s annual Back to the Past event on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4. The 1847 sawmill housed all the machinery needed to construct a house at the time, especially clapboards, shingles and lathe. Scribner’s Mill also manufactured barrels for the local apple industry, then turned to making ammunition boxes for the war effort during World War II. The mill continues to make barrels and shingles today, while the restoration of the site

continues. On request, visitors can put together a barrel, and they can also watch as the shingle mill turns out shingles. The Homestead, built in 1849, was the home for five generations of the Scribner family and is furnished to appear as it was in the 1920s. Tours through the homestead are like stepping back in time, as is also the case with

the barn, which holds a large collection of antique mill equipment. Behind the barn is the icehouse, which is full of tools used in harvesting ice off the Crooked River. Scribner’s Mill is found one mile south of Bolsters Mills on Jesse Mill Road, just over the bridge in Harrison. For more information or to schedule a private tour, call 583-6455. • Homemade Soups & Chowders • Sandwiches, Salads & More • Fresh Baked Bread, Pies, Cakes, Cookies • Fudge, Hand-Dipped Chocolates & More

Healing energy workshop (Continued from Page B) Nature in Denmark this Sunday, July 21. The workshop, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include guided seated meditation, restorative yoga, walking meditation and qi gong. The cost is a self-assessed sliding scale of $55-$125. Anyone can practice qi gong. People that are not especially fit are drawn to it and people that are fit who need to learn to relax are too. It’s also called a moving meditation but Donna Rae Smith, an R.N. and qi gong teacher likes to call it instead a “moving medication.” “I have taught yoga and Pilates for a long time, and it was when I injured my shoulder that I started thinking about other ways of healing,” Smith said. The movements and breathing techniques are designed to open the joints and help us tap in to our own ability to heal. “Qi gong, like no other form of movement, clears my mind and helps me see my life more clearly. It has made a big difference in how I feel and how I live my life” Smith said. Donna Rae teaches qi gong on Thursdays in the summer at Nurture Through Nature, from 9 to 10:15 a.m., in addition to offering it at the July 21 Healing Energy Workshop. During the rest of the year she teaches classes and workshops to people with specific health challenges including cancer, ataxia, Parkinson’s disease and multiple psychiatric conditions. She also teaches groups of people that just need to relax and renew. “I love teaching to new students. In the very first class, most people learn how to sense their energy and then they learn how to move with their energy. It’s easy and it’s very powerful.” By moving the body a certain way, specific energy acupuncture points are stimulated, allowing the energy to flow through the energy channels. It feels really good.” For more information or to hold your spot, contact 5958260 or visit

Even defends 5K title

HARRISON — What a difference nearly a week made for Tim Even. Even, a former University of Southern Maine and Fryeburg Academy runner, posted a top 10 finish in Bridgton under sweltering humid conditions last week, then defended his Harrison Run by the Lake 5K title as heavy rain fell. Even’s winning time was slightly behind last year’s mark (16:45 to 17:19), but was well ahead of 2011 winner Eric Darling, who posted a 17:32. Halee Phelps, 16, of Westbrook was the first female to cross the finish line on Depot Street in 21 minutes, 53 seconds. The Run by the Lake race saw another jump in attendance despite the weather as 193 finished, up from 163 in 2012 and 124 in 2011. Overall times 1. Tim Even, 24, Stoneham, 17:19 2.

ATTEND CHEERING CAMP — Lake Region varsity cheerleaders attending a four-day camp in Bangor included (left to right) Frances Kimball, Jacqueline Laurent, Faith Duquette, Adrianna Merrill, Mikayla Fortin and Kacie Tripp along with Coach Samantha Scarf (front).

LR cheerleaders impress at camp A group of cheerleaders from Lake Region High School traveled to Bangor on Sunday, July 7 to attend a four-day cheerleading camp at Husson University, sponsored by the National Cheerleading Association (NCA). The six Laker cheerleaders were: seniors Mikayla Fortin, Jacqueline Laurent, Frances Kimball and Kacie Tripp, along with sophomores Faith Duquette and Adrianna Merrill. They spent the four days learn-

ing new cheers and chants, dances and stunt sequences. They were then evaluated on the material they learned and earned three “superior” ribbons and three “excellence” ribbons (the highest award possible). Of the six girls from Lake Region, four received AllAmerican nominations (all seniors). An All-American nomination is a high honor within the sport and is someone who stands out to the staff at NCA for their skills in dance, motion technique,

jumps, leadership and tumbling. After being nominated, tryouts were held on the third night of camp where they had to score a 23 (out of 30) or higher to be named an All-American. Frances Kimball was not only selected as an All-American, she scored the highest out of all the cheerleaders in the camp that tried out. On the last day of camp, the Lakers were award the Herkie Award, named after the founder of NCA, Lawrence “Herkie”

Herkimer, which is given to a team that exemplifies the qualities of the NCA founder, including leadership, teamwork and strong values. They brought home a coveted spirit stick and Kimball was recognized for her leadership skills and awarded an Individual Leadership Award. Aside from the recognition and awards, the girls grew stronger as a team and learned skills that will aid them in their success both on and off the mat.

SOUTH PORTLAND — The Maine Panthers U16 girls’ softball team competed this past weekend in the annual Whitten Memorial Tournament in South Portland. The Panthers entered Sunday’s final round as the fourth seed, but were eliminated in a highly-competitive 1-0 game by the Bay State (Mass.) Thunder.

Panther pitcher Kolby Wood, who was away in the previous meeting, mesmerized Gem hitters, allowing just two hits while striking out 8 in six innings of work. The Panthers struck first as Casey Simpson singled, stole second, moved up to third on a passed ball. With one out, Elle Burbank ripped a line drive on a 1-2 pitch to right field. The Gems outfielder made a running initial catch, but dropped the ball. Simpson scored. The Gems tied the game in the third as the result of a single and an outfield error. The Panthers reclaimed the lead in the fourth as Kristen Chipman walked and scored on a deep drive to the left-center gap for an RBI double by Kylie Martin. PANTHERS, Page C

Panthers involved in tight games the Number 9 hitter bounced a drive up the middle, which Panther shortstop Casey Heath snagged, she spun and fired a crisp throw to first only to be late by a step. Two sacrifice bunts moved the runner to third, setting the table for the Thunder’s #3 hitter who delivered a bullet up the middle to score the run. The Panthers left runners (Casey Heath on an error and Kristen Chipman single) in scoring position in the first and fourth innings. Emily Whittemore made a strong bid for an extra base hit in the fifth when she rocketed a drive to rightcenter, but the Thunder outfielder made a nifty overthe-shoulder catch and held on when she tumbled to the ground. Bay State threatened to add an insurance run in the fifth, but a bunt attempt was popped up in front of home plate. Panther catcher Allison Morse made an outstanding catch and then fired a strike to third baseman Kristen Chipman, who doubled up the runner there. Wood worked out of trouble in the sixth, getting a line drive out to center and a strike out to leave a Thunder runner at second. In the seventh, Burbank turned in a highlight stab of a ground ball at second. Ranging to her left, she timed the hard-hit ball perfectly, reaching out, catching it and throwing the runner out at first. The Panthers went in order to end the game. The Panthers had just three singles by Whittemore, Simpson and Chipman. Up next: The Panthers close out their summer seaALL AMERICAN NOMINEES from left to right are Lake Region High School son this weekend at the Turn 2 Tournament in Bow, N.H. cheerleaders Mikayla Fortin, Jacqueline Laurent, Frances Kimball and Kacie Tripp. (Continued from Page C) Chipman opened the sixth with a single off a 1-2 fastball, moved up to second on a passed ball and scored on a Martin RBI single. Wood appeared on her way to victory by inducing an infield out and an apparent fly ball out to left, but the ball was dropped giving the Gems all they would need to rally to tie the game. A single, walk and an error saved the Gems. The game was called due to the 1 hour, 30 minute time limit. For the Panthers, Simpson was 2-for-4, and Martin 2for-3. Panthers 1, Noreasters (NH) 1: Kristen Chipman and Casey Heath each had RBI triples to spark a five-hit attack as the Panthers downed the Noreasters. The Panthers took a 1-0 lead in the second as Chipman reached on an error and Emily Whittemore ripped a drive just inside the third base bag for a run-scoring double. After the Noreasters tied the game in the second, the Panthers went up 2-1 on a Heath walk, Burbank single and a fielder’s choice by

Martin. After threatening in the fourth, the Panthers tacked on two runs in the fifth as Martin reached on an error and Chipman tripled to deep right-center. Chipman scored on a ground ball out to the right side by Allison Morse. Brittany Perreault led off the Panther sixth with a single to left, and later scored on Heath’s triple. Panther starter Kylie Martin scattered five hits, while striking out seven and allowing no walks. She logged a strike out in every inning other than the first. Comets (NH) 9, Panthers 8: The usually reliable Panther defense was off kilter in the final game on Saturday, committing five costly errors against the Comets. Despite the fielding lapses, the Panthers showed their resiliency, battling back over the final three innings to make it a close game. Down 5-0, the Panthers scored a pair of runs in the fourth on singles by Elle Burbank, Kylie Martin, Allison Morse, Kolby Wood and Ashley Clark. After the Comets cashed

in on two errors to make it 7-2, the Panthers rallied for four runs in the fifth on hits by Burbank, double by Martin and single by Morse. The Comets tacked on two runs in the sixth to go up 9-6, but the Panthers made it interesting in their last at bat as Brittany Perreault and Casey Simpson each singled, and Burbank belted a double to make it 9-8. With Burbank at third, the Panthers had two chances to push across the equalizer, but managed two infield fly ball outs to end the game. Thunder (Mass.) 1, Panthers 0: Sunday’s elimination round saw a classic in the 8 a.m. game between the Thunder and Panthers. The hard-hitting Thunder threatened to score with two out in the first inning on back-to-back singles, but Panther starter Kolby Wood escaped trouble by forcing an infield fly ball out. Wood turned in another sterling effort, mixing her pitches and location throughout the contest, scattering six hits while striking out five. The Thunder plated the game’s only run in the third as

Guyot wins Searles Regatta on Long Lake The Lake Region Sailing Club’s 2013 racing season kicked off Saturday, June 29 with the annual Searles Regatta on Long Lake in Harrison. Although weather conditions were questionable before the race, by race time five boats were at the starting line, winds were picking up, marks were set, and the seven-mile race was on. A staggered start saw Sandy Trend in her Sunfish first across the line, followed by Jerry Guyot and Jim Guyot in the Flying Scot Sail La Vie, Walt Read, Craig Trend and Sara Laroux in the Santana 20 Hat Trick, Rob Knowles and Ryan Lane in Pat Klofas’ Highlander, with Bob Bean, Hugh Bean and Jeff Preble rounding out the fleet in the J22 Rampage. After the start, wind velocity increased, becoming variable between 6 to 10 mph primarily from the south-southwest. Starboard tack was favored for the majority of the first leg. A few lulls on the way to the windward

mark were challenging as skippers watched the skies, fought to keep up speed and sought out puffs of wind to take advantage of. The fleet was spread out as the sailors forged ahead courageously against all odds, not knowing if the storm clouds from the west would blow over the lake or turn north to the mountains. Trend rounded the mark first, followed by the four racing class boats in order of their start times — the Flying Scot, Santana 20, Highlander and J22. The winds were building to 8 to 10 mph on a broad reach to the jibe mark. Rounding the mark found the fleet on a fast reach back across the lake to the east shore mark just north of Lakeside Pines Campground. Winds increased slightly, steadying from the south and a race back to the windward mark was on, this time several tacks were required to reach the mark. Trend’s Sunfish rounded the mark first with the racing fleet literally on her stern. Read, Guyot and

SAILORS ENJOYED THEIR TIME on the water and off at the annual Searles Regatta held on Long Lake on Saturday, June 29. It was the opening event of the season for the Lake Region Sailing Club.

Bean raised their spinnakers in a glorious display of color and the battle was on to the finish line in Harrison! Knowles and Read favored the west shore of the lake while Guyot and Trend chose the center of the course, alternating between a run and broad reach the entire leg. Bean challenged the fleet from behind, sail(Continued from Page C) Scott’s beat Henry’s Concrete 4-2; Long Lake defeated ing up the eastern edge of Caswell House 4-1; Worster’s blanked Aces 4-0; and Ruby’s the racecourse, catching fresh south wind to his advantage.

The five boats crossed the finish line within 2 minutes of each other with Jerry Guyot being the big winner for the second year in a row. Way to go Jerry, the pressure is on for next year, can there be a three-peat? Bean’s J22 finished a close second with Read’s Santana and Knowles’ Highlander battling it out for third and fourth place. Trend’s Sunfish rounded out the fleet seconds after the Read/Knowles duel.

Freedom of Hills: Sentinel Mtn. “The birds have vanished down the sky, Now the last cloud drains away. We sit together, The mountains and I, until only the mountain remains,” — Li Po – Chinese Poet in ZaZan on Ching T’in Mountain By Allen Crabtree Guest Writer One of our Denmark Mountain Hikers, Wayne Peabody, was flying over the Ossipee Mountains in New Hampshire recently taking aerials for his firm Green Parrot Aerials ( He was struck by the unusual shape of the mountain range — it forms a distinct ring clearly visible from the air. The Ossipee Mountains are arrayed in a circular shape nearly nine miles in diameter and are a distinctive terrain feature. “When I got back home I did a little more research and discovered that the Ossipee Mountains are the remnants of a huge extinct volcano,” Wayne said. During the Jurassic period and the time of the dinosaurs, magma rising to the surface formed volcanoes. The volcano formed in Ossipee, N.H., may have been as high as 10,000 feet, and would have looked something like Mt. Vesuvius. Three major eruptions, each about 10 million years apart, changed the volcano into what is seen today. The second eruption, around 90 million years ago, created the famous Ossipee Ring Dike, a circular crack

Boucher receives FA high honor FRYEBURG — Michelle Boucher, a resident of Fryeburg and a 2013 graduate of Fryeburg Academy, is this year’s recipient of the Gibson Memorial Medal, the school’s highest honor awarded to the senior student who is most outstanding in citizenship, character and scholarship. She received the medal at the Fryeburg Academy commencement ceremony, May 26. Michelle will be attending Colby College in Waterville this fall, where she plans to major in biology. She hopes to one day become a physician. “I was incredibly honored to win the Gibson Medal,” she said. “For me, it is a symbol of hard work and the changes I made in my school,

in my community, and within myself. I couldn’t have done any of it without the support of my peers, community, teachers and family.” The Gibson Memorial Medal is named for Harvey Dow Gibson, one of the foremost American financiers of his day and an 1898 Fryeburg Academy graduate. Michelle was also the recipient of the Maine Principals’ Association Principal’s Award, the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizens Award, the Fryeburg Area Rotary Service Above Self Scholarship, the Senator George J. Mitchell Scholarship, the Madeline A. Savard Medical Award, and the New England

Science Teachers Award, as well as a Dollars for Scholars Scholarship. Very active in community service, Michelle was recognized as a WCSH6 TV Teen Who Cares in 2012. One of her many community service endeavors involved starting a dress drive to provide affordable prom and semi-formal dresses to local girls. All dresses were $5 and the proceeds went to the Jackie Smith Fund, named after a beloved Fryeburg Academy guidance counselor who passed away in 2011, which helps students in dire circumstances. While at the Academy, she was on the high honor roll every semester and also served as class president all four years. In addition to a rigorous academic

class schedule that included many Advanced Placement courses, the music program was a big part of Michelle’s life on campus. She played the violin in a jazz combo, which earned second place in the Maine State High School Instrumental Jazz Festival this year. She also learned to play the trombone and the euphonium in addition to serving as the school’s drum major for four years. A well-rounded student, she played softball her first three years and, in her senior year, joined the Ultimate Frisbee team and the Nordic ski team, despite never having been on skis. Michelle lives in Fryeburg with her parents, Sarah and Gerry Boucher, and her brother Matthew.

My Irish Up by Mike Corrigan BN Columnist

What’s wrong with you?

What’s wrong with people, anyway? I thought I would investigate. In fact, I did investigate, which may explain the clicking sounds on your phone and those obviously fake moose tracks leading up to your dining room window and then abruptly ending, as if the “moose” attempted to leave the area in a jet pack and got stuck in your oak tree — which in turn might explain why it sounded like the acorns were whimpering and swearing softly most of last weekend. So, here’s the first thing that’s wrong with you: Americans will believe anything before accepting the most obvious explanation. You don’t know how many weeks I’ve turned to the police blotter to find someone complaining about whining acorns, sobbing leaves or just “vague, haunting murmurs and moans coming from somewhere up in the sky over my house” — as if people had never heard of jet packs, advanced SEA OF PINK — With an obvious good mix of rain and heat, flowers have produced some lovely colors throughout surveillance techniques or even Blackhawk Down. the Lake Region area.

Back on track

My life is getting back to normal lately. Two weeks ago, my daughter and her family moved in with the other grandparents, Roger and Chris Lowell in Bridgton, until the addition on their own house is done. My wife and I are each going over there one day a week to help out, just as Roger and Chris did for us. Twins Henry and Luke will be five months old the end of July and are growing like weeds. Their older sister, Claire, will be four in September and Lila is two-anda-half and both are adjusting to their baby brothers. Part of me misses seeing them every day, but I’m glad to have my life back too. So, after a hiatus of five months, I’ve resumed my work on a book. It’s about years of efforts by leftist individuals and lobbying groups to censor, discipline or dismiss me when I was a teacher. Some expressed outrage at my conservative views as a columnist and claimed they made me unsuitable for the classroom. Others disapproved of lessons I taught in class on U.S. History or current events involving Islamist terrorism, abortion, homosexuality or other controversial issues. Occasionally, I was able to obtain copies of their complaints. Some were fellow staff members, some were parents, community members or people in various interest groups on the left who lobbied principals, superintendents, school boards and state licensing agencies against me. I’ve accumulated a file full. There’s an even thicker file of letters to the editor in papers, which have published my column over the years insisting that anyone with opinions like mine isn’t fit to teach. There’s a file of letters from students, parents and community members in my support — some private, and others, which were published. Then, there are my own accounts of meetings with principals and superintendents, as well as e-mails and letters sent to me privately, many of which are nasty and unsigned, as well as others supporting, encouraging or praising my teaching. There was one telephoned death threat on voice mail that has since been lost, and even though I’ve also lost more than a hundred e-mails when a hard drive crashed, I still have much more material than I can use. My goal was to be finishing up the book about now and shopping it around to publishers, but the above-mentioned family responsibilities caused me to adjust my timetable. I ON TRACK, Page D

Letters Bucaneer capitalists

To The Editor: I love Lac-Megantic. It was the first place outside the United States that I ever visited. My parents took a day trip up there when I was a seventh grader, and I was so enchanted by the picturesque village by the serene blue lake that I’ve returned more than a dozen times in the years since. Tragically, most of that is gone now. Thanks to the corporate version of a World War II incendiary bombing run, much of the town has been reduced to a charred wasteland. In military parlance, that would be called “collateral damage.” In corporate-speak, it’s “just a business decision.” Actually, Lac-Megantic was devastated by a series of business decisions over a period of years, most of them made with utter contempt for the public good. Of course, that’s standard operating procedure for corporations today, right in line with “conservative” economic principles, which insist that corporations have no respon-

sibility to society, but only responsibility to make money for their stockholders. So the executives of Rail World decided to transport crude oil in railroad cars that the Department of Transportation called unsafe for that purpose years ago. Apparently their safety practices also were so shoddy that a train made up of dozens of such oil cars was allowed to sit unattended, with brakes incorrectly set, until it rolled away, careened into town in the middle of the night, derailed and exploded like a barrage of firebombs. Of course, buying stronger, safer cars and using a better safety program would have cost money, and we can’t have that. It violates “conservative” economic theory. Remember, corporations have no responsibility to society, only to stockholders. At some point, governments must come down with hobnailed boots on the greedy, reckless corporate money machine. They must remind buccaneer capitalists that governments run countries; corporations do not. If that doesn’t happen soon, the global corporate empire will undermine every society on earth, one blown-up village, BP oil spill and fracking earthquake at a time. Either we will have government of,

My life as an invertebrate Views from the Uppermost House by S. Peter Lewis BN Columnist I enjoy invertebrates as much as the next guy; used to be one myself, in fact. Back in 1967, I was just a normal kid sitting in an elementary school cafeteria peeling the wrapper off a package of Ring Dings with my teeth when I looked around and realized that we second graders could take over the world. It was just simple arithmetic: there were 75 of us short people and only three teachers. There were no cell phones, no 911, no pepper spray or Tasers, and we had the element of surprise (plus we had Alan Zittomer, who was huge). But the word synergy hadn’t been invented yet, and I was not a gifted leader, (no

backbone), so I let the idea die right there and the tri-headed dictatorship remained in power over our little tribe of subjugates — and that’s why there is still such a thing as the second grade today. Fast-forward a few decades and things haven’t changed much. I can spell synergy now, even know what it means, but I’m still not the out-front guy, still can’t gather a group together, align their collective will, and lead much of a charge. Truth is, discipline and order don’t really fit into my life very well — my wife won’t even ride in my car because of the chaos of rubbish, exercise equipment and fouled laundry heaped on the seats. “But I don’t sit in those seats,” I beg. Whenever we travel together we always take her car, which is vacuumed regularly and smells pleasantly like vanilla pudding. Fact is, I’m both in awe and a little intimidated by neatness, the whole everything-in-its-place thing. It just doesn’t seem natural to me, as if someone that bent on order must be hiding something awful amidst all that tidiness. My daughter’s room, by contrast, looks like an explosion at TJ Maxx, and she’s one of the most together, open, confident, trustworthy people I know. All that college-age compost just shouts: MY LIFE, Page D

Middle East: Riddles of the Sphinx Egypt’s recent “coup” or, if you prefer, Second Revolution, raises important questions, first, about its authenticity and, second, the implications for the United States in the Middle East. In brief, the Moslem Brotherhood government of President Mohammed Morsi was brought down by the army which arrested him and many of his close supporters, appointed a temporary successor regime complete with a “road map,” which is to lead to a revised constitution and new elections for parliament and president. At which point, the army will return to its barracks (wherein to remain vigilant against further disrupby and for the people, or we will have government by callous business executives, until nothing worth salvaging is left on this planet. I don’t think I’ll be visiting Lac-Megantic again any time soon. I want to remember the place the way it used to be before the corporate Frankenstein monster got done with it. Rev. Robert Plaisted Bridgton

Exercising religion

To The Editor: Our country was founded on religious freedom. In the past, governments were based on a specific religion. The religious authorities often had criminal jurisdiction in the government based on their interpretation of scriptures. In some cases, the government was a theocracy. The Founders recognized that because there were so many different interpretations of God’s word that an established religion should not have criminal jurisdiction within the civil administration of government because of the inevitable subjugation of minority or heretical views by ecclesiastical authorities. However, the Founders also recognized that the Creator was omnipresent

tions.) These coup-like moves were prompted by massive numbers (many millions, it is said) of Egyptians in the street protesting the autocratic and incompetent Morsi government. (In some measure correct charges.) Major grievances were a refusal to share power, the long lines of cars at in mankind’s endeavors and deliberations. This is the reason that they wrote the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” (emphasis mine). Today, however, the secular progressives say that any reference, in public places, to the Creator or the JudeoChristian writings (which were relied upon by the Framers as part of the philosophical underpinnings of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution) somehow violates the First Amendment’s proscription that “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion…” Since Congress has never passed a law that established any religion as the religion of state and given that the judiciary cannot make law under the Constitution (only Congress can), then a prayer, an invocation of God’s blessings, a display of the philosophical underpinnings of our Founding Documents or a display of historical events in that tradition do not constitute violations of the First Amendment. Conversely, the complaint of atheists that any prayer to any God in any public place is a violation of their rights is an act of LETTERS, Page D

gas pumps seeking fuel, electricity outages and the absence of police to maintain law and order on the streets. All this while the economy continued to sink, tourism disappeared, unemployment rose and the country’s foreign exchange reserves dwindled. From those with breath left to shout on the streets came denunciations of

American ambassador Anne Patterson for having overtly supported Morsi’s Moslem Brotherhood. But hold on. How true, how valid are these crowd-exciting conditions? Rather questionable, I would say. Within days of Morsi’s fall, gas lines disappeared as fuel was delivered and [fairly] normal electric power resumed. Police reappeared on the streets. Could it have been that these vital services had been cut by remnants of the Mubarak regime in order to undermine Morsi? And bear in mind, his liberal, secular opposition refused to cooperate with the president. Last week, happily for SPHINX, Page D

Wake watching

Every craft moving over water creates a wake. The wake has two distinct sets of waves — one following the vessel and the other spreading outward from its track. The mixture of these two sets of waves form the wake pattern, which varies with vessel length, speed and water depth. As a boater, you are responsible for your wake and any damage or personal injuries that your wake causes. Your wake should not be excessive or pose a hazard to other vessels. Any vessel operating in an idle-speed, “no wake” zone must operate at the minimum speed that allows the vessel to maintain headway and steerage. In general, if your vessel creates a wake that breaks or generates white water you are traveling above no wake speed. If the bow of your vessel settles down when you reduce power to your engine, you are going too fast for a no wake zone. Any vessel operating in a slow down minimum wake zone must operate fully off plane and completely settled in the water. When exiting Brandy Pond to enter Long Lake, you must wait until you pass the regulatory marker indicating you are past the 200-foot limit. Boats taking a left turn to go parallel to the causeway must go idle speed unless they go past the idle speed markers located from in front of the bridge and go along the shoreline. Slow down, enjoy your day out on the water and watch your wake.

Indigo Bunting at the feeder

RACE RINGER? — An early surprise entry in the annual Duck Race? The Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club awarded $850 in prize money to the winners of the 2013 Rotary Duck Race held on July 4 at Stevens Brook in Bridgton. Winning the first place prize of $500 was Jeff Aspinwall of Groton, Conn. The second place prize of $250 went to Bill Preis of Gorham, and winning $100 for third place was Carolyn Yetman of Bridgton. Several participants won Rotary Duck Race T-shirts. The Rotary Club, a nonprofit service organization, helps the local communities’ youth, elderly, veterans and others worldwide in need of food, utilities, education, and access to health care and other services by providing financial support and engaging in hands-on projects. It serves Bridgton, Denmark, Harrison, Naples and Sweden. (Photo by Rich Ormanowski-Event Photography)

Medicare nugget By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor Over the last four years, the Obama administration has recovered over $14.9 billion in health care fraud judgments and settlements. Since the Affordable Care Act, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has revoked 14,663 providers and suppliers’ ability to bill in the Medicare program. Most Medicare providers are honest and work hard to provide services to beneficiaries. Unfortunately, there are some who try to exploit the Medicare system. People with Medicare will soon see a redesigned statement of their claims for services and benefits that will help them better spot potential fraud, waste and abuse. According to CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner, the new Medicare Summary Notice gives seniors and people with disabilities accurate information on the services they receive in a simpler, clearer way, “It’s an important tool for staying informed on benefits and for spotting potential Medicare fraud by making the claims history easier to review.” Stan Cohen, a Medicare Volunteer Counselor, is available for free, one-on-one consultations at Bridgton Hospital on Tuesdays from 8 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 on the last three Tuesdays in July. PUBLIC NOTICE

After breakfast this morning, I was puttering around in the kitchen and happened to glance out the window to the seed feeder that hangs on the porch. A bright yellow goldfinch was perched on one side of it, and on the opposite side of the feeder was an unfamiliar blue bird. Occasionally a blue jay will land on that feeder, making it sway wildly, and sending seeds scattering onto the porch and the ground, but this bird was small, about the size of the goldfinch, and it was politely extracting one seed at a time. It was not a blue jay. I briefly considered eastern bluebird, but they are not seed eaters and do not visit our feeder. Up the road, where there are open fields, I sometimes see one perched on a utility wire or a tree limb, watching for insects or small invertebrates in the grassy field below. An eastern bluebird is blue on the back, and reddish on the breast, but this bird was all blue. It was not an eastern bluebird. The bird on our feeder was a male indigo bunting, dark blue, with a light colored, cone shaped bill. Because the blue color in bird feathers is not produced by pigment, but by the physical structure of the feather, in poor light this bird would appear almost black. In bright sunlight, he would be brilliant blue. Female indigo buntings, brownish and lightly streaked, are much less conspicuous, and young males, in their second spring, are mottled blue, with some brown mixed in. Indigo buntings live most of the year in Mexico, Cuba, the West Indies, Central America, or southern Florida. Migrating at night, and navigating by the stars, they come north only to breed. In summer, they can be found across the eastern United States, and as far north as southern Quebec and Ontario. According to The Birder’s Handbook, by Erlich, Dobkin, and Wheye, they prefer to nest along the edges of deciduous woodlands, overgrown fields, shrubby areas, or brushy areas, where the female selects the site and builds a cup shaped nest in a deciduous tree or in a tangle of vegetation. The extent of the males’ involvement with the nestlings

They have a minority view that doesn’t believe in God or a Creator and that is fine, but while they are protected in their view, they are not allowed to prohibit “… the free exercise thereof…” of other peoples’ religious views and given the recognition of “Nature and Nature’s God” in the Declaration of Independence the inclusion of a deity in civil discourse is not only allowed but encouraged. Absent a Constitutional Amendment, the free exercise of religion is a First Amendment right of the people and cannot be abridged by those whose beliefs are different. The existential problem that Progressives have with God and the First Amendment is that if these concepts stand the Progressive assumption that rights derive from government has no moral, logical or legal justification.

Hefting and helping

To The Editor: For many years, the Friends of the Bridgton Library have held used book sales to help raise funds for the library. The books we offer for sale are those culled from the library or donated by people in the area. Though always successful, the hard work of lugging out all the boxes of books and cleaning up afterwards was getting harder and harder for the senior citizens who make up the Friends. Steve Cavicchi, who coordinates a lot of the local camps involvement in “4 on the Fourth” gave us the idea to use campers to do the heavy lifting. The first camp he reached out to for us — Camp Tapawingo — was happy to help and the two staff and 10 campers who came to work did a wonderful job. Thanks, too, to those unidentified folks who were just passing by and carried some boxes of books from the trucks to the courtyard. And while I’m at it — thanks, too,

by Jean Preis BN Columnist can vary widely from nest to nest, and if a male can hold and defend a high quality territory he is likely to have multiple mates. The song of the indigo bunting is a lively bright whistle, often consisting of paired phrases which the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website describes as what, what! where, where? see it, see it! Most young songbirds learn to sing by imitating their fathers, and are capable of learning those songs only within the first few months after hatching. Young male indigo buntings do not learn from their fathers, but from other males in the area. This results in the establishment of song neighborhoods, in which all resident males sing nearly identical songs. Each song neighborhood has its own songs, even though they may be located only a few hundred yards from each other. The young indigo buntings are able to learn new songs over a longer period of time, and can continue adding to their repertoires even after their first breeding season, Indigo buntings eat mostly insects, but they also consume seeds and berries, finding their food by foraging along the ground, or clinging to plant stems. Although they are fairly common in Maine during the summer, we rarely see one in our yard. The bird who was enjoying cracked sunflower seeds on our feeder this morning reminded us to pay attention, and to notice each bird, since we never know what special visitor might show up to the trustees of the Library for the beautiful courtyard, which is such a lovely setting for our sales. Our July 6 book sale broke all records for us — $1,500 worth of books sold in three hours! Weather permitting, we are holding another sale on Saturday, Aug. 3 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Company will put the I Have a Dream speech on to sell insurance. We will be known as people, my mother use to talk about, who “simply took up space.” I suspect there is far more interest in Bridgton for enlisting the support of rich folk who retire or have summer homes in this area than enlisting the support of poor folk.

They keep the local churches and food pantries going. They are charity folk. No matter how liberal they are, the well-to-do — our new self-proclaimed First Amendment freedom fighters — are unlikely to link arms with charity cases.

Dump picking was recycling By Price Hutchins A lot can be learned from how we alter our image of the world around us just by the words we use. In a generation the terms toxic waste, transfer station and waste management, have replaced pollution, the dump and the garbage man. Today, the image of scavenging at the dump conjures images with the third world garbage piles populated with feral dogs and children picking out edible morsels. But in the summers of the 1960s, dump picking for me was an adventure and a shopping trip. We vacationed on an island off of Freeport. The island had a dump at one end. This was a real dump. It was

always on fire. It contained garbage, broken stuff and stuff that was just unwanted. But, even wealthy occupants of the island thought of visiting the dump for something essential before heading “off Island” to find it. I don’t remember if we gave a thought to tetanus and I do remember finding a perfectly good torque wrench and an

engine block the size of a car. Today that island, way out in Casco Bay, is still without electricity or landlines, but the dump is closed and off limits. Garbage is collected and hauled back to the mainland on a barge for proper handling. Gone are the days when the dump supplied the raw materials for forts and tree

houses, and bolts or carburetor parts might be picked off a heap of scrap metal. I suppose rats and seagulls will always hover over and around landfills and transfer stations. Even in the old dump setting they were considered vermin, but they were doing their own sort of dump picking too — recycling of a more organic type. It was smelly back then. The waste stream did not exactly stop at the high tide line. If the breeze was offshore the house smelled of grimy smoke. The golf course that exists where the old dump once was probably lies just above a vast array of nasty things. It was far DUMP, Page D

(Continued from Page D) know the price of “speaking up” and feel this far more than you folks do with your penchant for statistical data. We are well aware of the outrageous amount we pay for dental and medical services or car repairs. We know that paychecks and “entitlements” like food stamps or MaineCare are getting cut or lowered as prices get higher. We know the callousness of bureaucratic red tape. All those living on the edge of poverty, including myself, are convinced we won’t make a wit of difference if we speak up in the newspaper, in churches, within our families or places of employment. We know this from first-hand knowledge. We also get “duped” by the media and good liberal folk who talk about us as if they care when they haven’t a clue. Certainly, the “old democracy” seems outclassed by the new democracy dominated by mountains of money, slick


ads and slicker, often glamorous candidates. Things like a passion for justice, honesty and integrity seem archaic and useless. We know how “pseudo-intellectual relativist teachers” supposedly in love with “objective truth” need to have “statistical data” to fortify their “objective truths about how dependent freeloaders, communists, pseudo intellectual relativists”, ugly feminists and baby killers are taking over the world. When our own first-hand observations of objective truths must compete with paid “intellectuals” like that, we’re screwed. Some of us would love to get an occasional high-five endorsement from you high falutin’ pundit fellas — say you Henry Precht or you Mike Corrigan. A whole lot of us have lost all faith in democracy. With no support, we not only stop protesting or whistle blowing but we stop voting or even writing letters to the editor. With no support or encouragement, why in the world would we, poor folk who would like to believe in meaningful reform

BEHAVIOR, Page D that affects our quality of life for the better can occur through participation in either local or national government. How can we believe in civil liberties, civil rights and the meaningfulness of the right to vote when all that’s been taken over by rich folk. Why in the hell would we go out in the streets in “solidarity” to protest. We give up. Elitist liberals are as much to blame as conservative Republicans. We are also to blame. You all know I’m right, but we ungrateful uppity folks living in poverty make you feel so guilty and uncomfortable, you cringe in fear when we come into the room, even when we come over to wish us well in a sermon or an editorial that is well written and speaks to us. We know your greatest fear is not the death of democracy or the Golden Rule, but to be known as being poor, humiliated and ostracized and made into collateral damage… just like us.

By Lake Region Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services Sticks and stones will break your bones, but names will never hurt you? The experience of degrading sexual remarks, being the butt of sexual jokes and ridicule, or having sexual pictures posted online by others results in young children and teens who feel powerless to stop such behaviors. As a result, the media has reported the suicide of children and teens. Most media reports of the sexual taunting, ridicule and degradation label the behaviors as bullying versus sexual harassment. Is that accurate? Sexual harassment is defined as behavior of a sexual nature that is unwanted or un-welcomed and interferes with school or work. This can be physical, visual, verbal or written. Students who are sexually harassed often stay home from school; start doing poorly at school; develop behavioral issues; experience depression and low self-

(Continued from Page D) don’t regret that, being the proud grandfather of healthy twin grandsons and two beautiful granddaughters with whom I was able to bond for five months. Summer is a busy season for my property management business around Kezar Lake in Lovell and that will limit my writing time until it all slows down late in the fall. If all goes right, I should be done with the first draft mid-winter sometime. It’s been difficult cranking out a column every week while working on the book as well, so I’ve begun merging the two here and there. Last week’s column, which I called “Thought Patterns,” was my first effort. It’s what I was working on when I left off last January — laying out broad themes into which many lessons in my 20th-century history curriculum fit. They could be termed “classically liberal” themes, rather than “liberal” in the sense of those whose adherents lately have been calling themselves “Progressives.” Columns like “Thought Patterns” won’t appear in the book verbatim, but some of its paragraphs will. Had I been finished and shopping the book to publishers now, the timing would have been favorable given recent revelations about IRS harassment of conservatives. It seems that story has legs, however, and it might still be in the news next winter when I’m actually done. I can only hope.

Marcelline Holtje WELLESLEY, MASS. — Marcelline “Marcie” Govoni Holtje, a lifelong resident of Wellesley Mass. and a 30-year summer resident of North Sebago, Maine, passed away on July 15, 2013, after living with Alzheimer’s disease for five years. She was 79. Born in Newton, Mass. in 1934, Marcie attended Wellesley public schools. She graduated from Wellesley High School in 1952, where she was a twirler and head majorette in the marching band. After graduating from Lasell Jr. College in Newton, Marcie took a job in what would become a career of over 40 years, working as the medical secretary for Dr. Stephen Peabody in Wellesley. It was while working for Dr. Peabody that Marcie met her best friend, life partner and devoted husband of 54 years, Peter Holtje. They were married in 1959. While Peter was an MBA student at Babson College, Marcie was president of the Babson Wives Club. While their three children were growing up, Marcie was active in school and community groups. She served on the Hardy School PTA, was a member of the St. James Women’s Guild in the 1960s, taught CCD, and volunteered with her daughters’ Brownie and Girl Scout troops. Marcie embraced her Italian heritage and made several trips to Europe, many to her father’s hometown of Pieve di Cento, where she met and enjoyed visits with relatives. Marcie’s giving spirit and her devotion to Catholicism led her and Peter to make a dozen pilgrimages to Medugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina. They traveled there with Medugorje Messengers of Framingham to witness the miracle of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary and to bring needed supplies for refugees of the war. Marcie and Peter spent countless volunteer hours together in the offices of Medugorje Messengers in the 1990s. Marcie was predeceased by her parents, Alceo M. Govoni and Josephine B. Govoni; and by her beloved son Steven D. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Peter Holtje of Wellesley; brother Dr. Norman Govoni of Medfield; daughter Margaret Holtje of North Bridgton, Maine; daughter Elizabeth Woodman and her husband Kenneth of Framingham, Mass.; granddaughters Karen Plain, Kelly Woodman and Molly Woodman; great-granddaughter Lilly Evangeline Woodman; nine nieces and nephews; and many relatives in the Wellesley and West Springfield areas. Special thanks go to Jane Collins for her tireless home companionship in the last several months. Arrangements are being made by George F. Doherty and Sons of Wellesley. A funeral mass will be said at St. Paul Church, Washington St., Wellesley, and interment is to be at Woodlawn Cemetery in Wellesley. 1T29X

SEBAGO — Patricia Ann Goodwin Merritt, 91, passed peacefully at home in Sebago surrounded by the love of her family and friends on Thursday, June 27, 2013. Patty was born in her home in Kezar Falls on July 20, 1921 to Frank P. Goodwin Jr. and Ethel Gilpatrick. In her youth, Patty was trained by her dad as a hunter, fisherman and equestrian. She graduated from Gould Academy, and then attended the Bouve Boston School of Physical Education. When her mother showed her an ad for physical therapy training at the Mayo Clinic, her fate was decided. She joined the United States Army Nurses’ Corps as a physical therapist and served during both WWII and the Korean Conflict. Her first post after being commissioned was the Army’s Deshon General Hospital in Butler, Pa. After being transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, she met her future husband, Chester Merritt, when he became one of her patients. They were married in Maryland in 1951 on the Fourth of July, and spent their evening watching the fireworks in Washington, D.C. They subsequently had three children. After spending some time in Milwaukee, Chet and Patty moved back to Maine, where both worked in the family businesses. Her husband’s death in 1974 left Patty to run the Goodwin’s Lodge in Sebago. After retiring from the lodge, Patty dedicated herself to her children and grandchildren. In her later years, she joined her son, Richard, in his home in Sebago, where she enjoyed the company of her family and her kitty, Jack-Jack. She especially looked forward to her son Frank’s oyster stew. She also loved “talking” to Ricky the rooster every morning with the chicken yard just outside her room! Patty is survived by her sons Frank Merritt and Richard Merritt, both of Sebago; daughter, Alice Merritt of Kezar Falls; her four grandchildren and a great-grandson. A graveside service will be held Saturday, July 20 at 11 a.m. at the Stanley Cemetery, located on Route 160 in South Hiram, followed by an open house celebration of Patty’s 92 years from 1 to 4 p.m. at Frank and Brenda Merritt’s home at 7 Spring Lane (on Route 114, across from Goodwin’s Lodge in Sebago).

Jennifer M. Tarr LITCHFIELD, N.H. — Jennifer M. Tarr, 42, born in Portland, Maine on May 14, 1971, passed away on Tuesday, July 9, 2013, from a courageous fight against brain cancer. Her bravery, pure toughness, positive attitude, and determination to beat an incurable disease was unprecedented. Because of that she won many battles throughout the two and a half-year fight. If you asked her why she fought so hard she’d tell you that it was to see her two boys as long as possible. Jennifer lived in Litchfield, N.H. for the past six years, and is survived by her husband Richard Tarr; and two sons, Tanner, 15, and Wyatt, 7. Jennifer and Richard’s oldest son, Arick, passed away at age 20 in July 2011. Jennifer spent 14 years working for her mother and father at Consumer Credit Counseling Services, where she held many different roles, but mainly as a Financial Counselor. Over the past 10 years she has been a full-time mother, where she enjoyed spending time in the kitchen cooking for her family and friends. Jenn’s big smile and beautiful big brown eyes would make anyone smile and warm any room that she entered. Jennifer’s favorite place to spend time was at her parents camp in Naples, Maine on Sebago Lake, where she loved boating, being on the beach, and swimming. Her favorite holiday was Thanksgiving, where she’d have dinner at her Uncle Mike and Aunt Sylvia Czech’s house in Mass. before spending the next several days at her Aunt Nancy and Uncle Alan’s house in Cheshire, Conn. with a houseful of her favorite aunts, uncles, and cousins. What truly made the camp and Thanksgiving so special for Jennifer were the happy memories it created for her by being with a family that meant the world to her. Jennifer is also survived by her mother and father, Rick and Diane Dobson; mother and father-in-law, Mary Ann and Tom Tarr; her sister and brother-in-law, Jessica Dobson and Todd Roma; her brother and sister-in-law, Justin and Christine Dobson; and sister and brother-in-law, Jamie and Geoff Crain. She also had many special aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces within the Dobson, Young, Tarr, Moskwa, and Czech families, who all had a special place in her heart. Jenn was also very much loved by all her nephews and nieces who called her Cioci, which means “Special Aunt” in Polish, because she would let them do, eat, or play whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted. Jennifer was a special person who was taken too early and will be terribly missed by all. Visiting hours were held from 5–8 p.m., on Friday, July 12, 2013 at the Hobbs Funeral Home, 230 Cottage Road, South Portland, Maine, where a funeral service was held at 10 a.m., on Saturday, July 13th.

Everett S. Stults RAYMOND — Everett S. Stults, 82, of Raymond passed away on July 10, 2013, surrounded by family. He was the son of Hiram and Helen (Jones) Stults. Everett was a graduate of Falmouth High School. After graduating, he married the love of his life, Patricia Ann Butland. Together, they shared 62 years of marriage. Everett served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and was an Army reservist. Following Everett’s years in the Army, he began working for The Portland Water District as a service technician, retiring after 41 years of service. Everett will be remembered for his love of square dancing, as well as for being a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader. In later years, he and his wife traveled frequently to Florida, where they eventually spent their winters.

Dump picking is still recycling (Continued from Page D) from an idyllic system. But, today so much of the process is removed from each of us. Leftovers are packed into tidy bags with drawstrings. The bags disappear into some type of maw and our discards never appear before us again. They are forgotten. Our connection to them neatly undone. So as much as we are educated about recycling and reducing, the system now draws a tidy curtain between us and the issues. As we recycle more and are more aware of the waste stream and our role in it, aren’t we also increasing the toxicity of the landfill we still employ? More and more its contents are the things we just can’t reuse and which are truly toxic. No energetic 12-year-old boy could find anything in the pile today but plastic shards and heavy met-

als. I hear that the containers we fill up at our local transfer station are picked over by professionals and much of the contents recycled. But, professionals cannot out-do a 12-year-old boy in repurposing. This is probably why there are so many fewer cobbled together go-carts around now than there were in the 60s. Not to put too fine a point on this subject, but those handsome old rock walls scattered about western Maine that we admire and protect are refuse. Farmers in the 19th century preferred to mark their boundaries with wooden fences or brush. Those lovingly maintained stone edifices are the refuse from backbreaking manual clearing of glacial tailings. They didn’t purposefully dig them up just to create a beautiful landmark. They

really not a big deal. We have to begin to take seriously that which traumatizes the spirit of another person. We too often see “harm” on a vertical scale of one to 10 — with one as not or minimally counting, and 10 as serious — with only physical violence pushing the “harm” up the ladder. Seldom is there physical injury from sexual harassment, sexual abuse or sexual assault — except perhaps the self-harm imposed by victims and survivors on themselves as a means of coping with the trauma to the spirit/the heart/ the soul — substance abuse,

cutting, suicide attempts, suicide. Sexual harassment, abuse and assault is sexual harassment, abuse and assault — each and every incident is not okay and each and every victim and survivor has a right to be heard, believed, supported and given choices to recover and heal. If each of us takes the time to address sexual harassment/ abuse/assault, to call it what it is, to model and expect respectful healthy words and behaviors, sexual violence will decrease, and hopefully, ultimately end.

were merely tossing them to the edge of the field to be rid of them. Saving all my twoliter pet bottles to create a boundary wall on my land today is not too far a stretch from clearing an acre back in 1840. Years from now — long after our neighbors have died of embarrassment — homeowners will adore the colors, marvel over an odd unopened cola, and inspect the faded Mountain Dew and Polar Seltzer labels. Why, the historical society will schedule tours and the town will prohibit tourists from picking at my bottle wall. My antecedents will speak of me with awe. Someone else could create a fence of discarded computer monitors. People from away might forsake leaf peeping just to get on a bus and tour Lovell’s many PET walls and monitor monuments. Go ahead. Disregard me as an old guy who has nothing to say that doesn’t start with, “in the old days…” but I’m not certain we have really figured out the real waste stream — recycling locally — reducing thing. Filling a pantry up with plastic shopping bags that you saved after

grocery shopping is not — I repeat-not —recycling, not effective and short sighted. I have at least 20 yards of great soil created by years of dedicated composting and I can’t find a home for it. Most towns now have signs posted at the transfer station prohibiting picking. I would advocate that the contents of the dump are the property of the residents until they have thoroughly picked it over. What is more proper than a 12year-old boy wading through trash searching for a steering wheel for a go-cart? Before pulling the drawstrings on this week’s trash, sort through it again and then drop it off at your neighbors so they can have a shot at it. Keep an eye out for the socket set that goes with the torque wrench will ya? Price Hutchins is at the peak of a mediocre career. This career includes restaurant owner, carpenter, toilet paper salesperson, stay at home dad, chemical salesman, entrepreneur and Home Depot associate.

sexual context, and deliberately ridicule, berate, judge and degrade — not thinking about, or not caring about, the effect of their behavior on another. Regardless of how students understand and use these terms, many adults have for too long allowed these terms to be used – almost numb to their meanings and messages; or, sadly supportive of their meanings and messages. So — to avoid being accused of allowing, even promoting, sexual harassment, does sexual harassment get re-labeled bullying? Stan Davis, well known in Maine for his anti-bullying research, says, “Sexual harassment is against the law, and provides the ‘target’ — the person on the receiving end — with specific rights and an intervention with more power (than bullying). We need to call it what it is.” Sexual harassment is often accepted as a norm in our society — “just” a joke; or, the target is over-sensitive; or, it’s

Back to the “bullying” incidents where children as young as 10 ended up committing suicide by hanging — seeing that as the only way to cope with what was happening to them. What was happening to them? Mostly, their sexual orientation was being judged with intolerance — labels like fag, queer or you’re gay were dished out, with students feeling like they were branded with a scarlet letter. Or, comments or labels of a sexual nature about their sexual activity, real or fabricated, were directed toward a student, directly or indirectly. Sounds like sexual harassment. Some students use sexually related words without really knowing their meaning, using the words in the context of stupid, jerk or nerd. Others absolutely know the meaning of the words they use in their

My Irish Up: What is wrong with you?

(Continued from Page D) Here are three other things you’ve probably gotten completely wrong, according to my intense research: 1. If only you made another $25,000 a year, right? A few years ago, a survey was taken of American heads of family. Guess what? The people who were making $40,000 a year thought everything would be great if only they made an extra $25,000 a year. The families pulling down seventy-five grand thought another $25,000 a year would solve all their problems. The ones making $125,000 — well, they needed an extra $25,000 to get by. You may not have noticed the pattern develop-

ing here, so I’ll spell it out for you: you’ll never be satisfied. Never! No matter how much you get, you’ll always want more. This is a problem easily solved. Take a vow of poverty. Give away all your money! Graciously, I will hold it for you while you get your priorities in order. Send it (hundreds only, please) to Mike Corrigan, General Delivery, Lewiston ME 04240. You can be confident it will be put to good use in the interim, or for the next 22 years, whichever comes first. 2. You think other people have too many rights while yours are constantly being eroded, or at least strongly

weathered. Do you really think that the government, which doesn’t give a crap about anybody but is just kind of there, is busily concocting elaborate schemes to take away your gun while ensuring that someone else it doesn’t care a tinker’s dam about either, gets to keep theirs? Please notice two salient facts which disprove your theory: first, you still have your gun; second, so does everybody else these days, including your grandmother and your granddaughter — and if those two don’t have a gun, a selectman will come personally to your home to shoot them, as an example to the community.

Besides, the real problem with rights is our whackedout Supreme Court and increasingly draconian legislation like the Patriot Act, all of this aimed at leaching away everybody’s rights, except the big money’s (see: the No Millionaire Left Behind Act). I’m just saying, because the next time someone gets stuck in your oak tree, it won’t be me… Not that it was me the last time… Though it wouldn’t kill you to mow your back lawn once in awhile. 3. And another thing. You got all upset when the Taliban shot that 14-year-old Pakistani girl in the head for suggesting females should

have an actual life, didn’t you? — but then you didn’t really give a crap when the president of the United States sent a drone missile into Pakistan which killed a fouryear-old girl, among other people, the majority of the dead innocent bystanders. Why did the four-year-old have it coming to her, while the 14 year old is considered a victim of political violence? What would happen if the president of Pakistan fired a drone into the United States and killed a four-yearold girl? Would you like to define terrorism for the rest of the class, Slick? Is it only terrorism if somebody does something bad to you?

Now, I’m not saying it’s you who has gotten these three things wrong — but if it is you, wise up. Because you never know when a moose might fall out of the sky and crush you like a bug. (And, in case you have recently moose-proofed your upper body, be advised that I also own a pretty nifty walrus costume. Or someone surveilling you right this moment owns one, anyway. Whoever that may be.) I also think your roof gutters could stand a little cleaning. Ed. Note: They say Mike Corrigan also owns a pretty nifty walrus costume.

(in Middle East terms) and democratic (ditto) party. The oil-rich autocratic monarchies which adhere to a more extreme brand of Islam don’t care for the competition. Their buddies in Egypt, the extremist Salafis (who ranked second in the polls to the MB), applauded the army coup. As to Ambassador Patterson, she was only doing her job in maintaining contact with Morsi and Co. — albeit perhaps with excessive attendant publicity. She’s one of our top diplomats, having represented us in hot spots Columbia and Pakistan. For too long and in too many places, U.S. policy has suffered because we refused to talk to people we didn’t like or agree with. America should be in touch with all currents, like them or not. She did that. So what’s all this trouble mean for us? Two big things: First, peace — even a chilly one — between Egypt and Israel is fundamental to our position in the region. A resumption of the pre-Camp David hostility would be disastrous. It is essential that we maintain friendly influence with Egypt for the sake of that peace. The other consequences of the coup – real, fabricated or both – are more complicated but equally threatening. Whom do we support in deed and word: the democratically

elected Moslem Brotherhood or the militarily imposed new regime? U.S. law prohibits aid to governments created by a coup. That’s why we haven’t heard President Obama utter the “C” word; blocking delivery of the next batch of F-16s would seriously offend the army leadership and weaken our position. On the other hand, if we support the toppling of Morsi, we teach Moslem Brotherhood groups around the region that democracy won’t be allowed to work for them. Only armed resistance and power held by force of arms, they may conclude, can stand up to the West and its secular surrogates who seem their natural enemies.  In these conditions, President Obama is right to move cautiously, quietly trying to bridge the enormous gap between coup leaders and coup victims. Prisoners should be released; firing on demonstrators stopped; freedoms should be respected and, most importantly, a respected and honest mediator should be found to talk to both sides in the interest of all Egyptians. Only if a sense of national unity and purpose can be found again, can Egypt — “Mother of the World” — be preserved from terrible civil strife. Henry Precht is a retired Foreign Service Officer.

Their tables and coolers start out full of farm products with more to come as more vegetables come into season.

My life as an invertebrate

(Continued from Page D) “Nothing to hide! Just look for yourself! Here I am with all my dents and wrinkles! By the way, have you seen my hairbrush? Or my hermit crab?” So anyway, this summer (as some of you may have noticed), has been very wet. So soggy that stepping outside in the early morning is like walking into a giant salad. And boy, if ever there was a Year of the Slug, this is it. Those gooey things are just everywhere. (In order to get the most out of this column, you should Google “anatomy of a slug” right now… actually, wait, I just did that, and no, you shouldn’t.) I don’t much like slugs because they defoliate things in the gardens, cutting my poor basil plants off at the

stump and killing perennials in the flowerbeds. I hate squishing them, because, well, that’s disgusting, so I’ve gotten in the habit of flinging them across the road toward the lake with a spoon. Some morning last week, I went for a walk before work and it was very early and it was drizzling, but the sun was trying to poke through so the road was warm and steaming and coming back to the house minding my own business I started seeing slugs. More slugs than usual. An alarming number of slugs, actually. A slug about every 10 or 15 feet. Pretty soon, I was utterly fixated on slugs and wasn’t even paying attention to traffic. Walking a bit bent over, counting steps between slugs. Then, I noticed that ALL THE SLUGS WERE GOING THE

SAME WAY. I mean exactly the same way. Laying down parallel mucous trails. So, I panicked and ran down the street toward our house, jumping over a parallel slimy Limax flavus Linnaeus every few steps, and then dashed through the garage and into the kitchen and shouted to my wife, “ALL THE SLUGS ARE GOING THE SAME WAY!” And she looked at me and said, “Toward the lake, right?” And I said, “No, they’re coming this way!” And she just blinked at me. “They’ve organized!” I yelled, my voice quavering a little. And I ran through the house pulling down the window shades. I knew what those invertebrates were up to, and it frightened me.
