Where are new park’s stewards?

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Bridgton Selectman Doug Taft just can’t understand it. Residents have said for years how much they wanted a downtown park, they spent their tax dollars to help buy the land and agreed to have the town take over ownership of Pondicherry

(USPS 065-020)

Park. Why is it, then, he said Tuesday, that only one person has offered to serve on a stewardship committee? “I’m a little disappointed with the lack of applications,” said Taft, as the board prepared to interview the one candidate, Lega Medcalf, who responded

to the ad seeking residents willing to serve on the Pondicherry Park Stewardship Committee. The ad began running a month ago, after the park was formally gifted to the town and a conservation easement was simultaneously granted to the Loon Echo Land Trust. LELT has led fundraising for the park proj-

ect from its inception six years ago, in partnership with Lakes Environmental Association. LELT and LEA will each have one member on the committee; the town will have three, serving staggered terms of one, two or three years. The town will also appoint one resident as an PARK, Page A

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer If the Bridgton Board of Selectmen wants to break new legal ground by requiring developers of apartment projects to give preference to local residents, they have two choices. Either spend a lot of money on legal advice, or forge ahead without it, and hope a local preference ordinance will stand up in court. Community Development Committee member Mark Lopez believes the town ought to take the risk, and become the first municipality in Maine to adopt a local preference housing ordinance. He said the CDC voted to recommend that selectmen draft a local preference ordinance to go before voters in November, after members attended an informational meeting in Bridgton by Avesta Housing, Inc. on their plans to build a 21-unit affordable housing complex on the former Chapter 11 property on Main Street. “They (Avesta officials) said that the possibility exists that not a single Bridgton resident would be living there,” Lopez told the board Tuesday. Lopez argued that local preference is allowed on the federal level when it comes to housing, and since it isn’t spe-

cifically prohibited in Maine law, it should be allowed. A third reason for going ahead with bringing a local preference ordinance before voters, he said, is that Maine is a home rule state. Besides, Lopez said, a legal opinion is, “at the end of the day,” just one man’s opinion. The town could spend many thousands of dollars on legal advice on the town’s right to assert local preference, and it still “could be a black hole that you pour money into.” Selectmen, acting on a suggestion by CDC member Chuck Renneker, voted to ask Town Counsel Richard Spencer of Drummond Woodsum to give the town an estimate of how much it will cost to research and help draft a legally-defensible local preference ordinance. So far, the town has incurred $4,000 in legal costs from meetings and conference calls between Spencer and the three town employees assigned to research the issue: Anne Krieg, director of planning, economic and community development; Robbie Baker, code enforcement officer; and Georgiann Fleck, executive assistant. In a memo summarizing a July 18 conference call with

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Selectmen once again tabled action on reviewing the lease agreement for the town-owned Salmon Point Campground Tuesday, deciding 4-1 (Paul Hoyt opposed) to wait until Aug. 14, when the Community Development Committee will offer its recommendations. However, one activity by long-term lease campers did get discussed — the practice of adding structures, such as decks or porches, to their campers or

recreational vehicles. “Some are probably as large as my house,” joked Chuck Renneker, CDC member. He characterized some of the structures as “permanent or semipermanent,” and said their owners should be taxed. “These are one-year leases,” he said with dismay. Renneker also pointed out that there currently is no deposit or damage provision in the lease agreement that would protect the town should damage or vandalism occur to the

Casco Days: A truly town event

PROTEST — About 30 protestors created a human oil spill on Raymond Public Beach. The rally was held to observe the second year anniversary of a million-gallon tar sands oil spill into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan. (De Busk Photo)

Tar sands: Solution or a threat?

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer RAYMOND — On the eve of July 25, 2010, a pipeline rupture allowed tar sands oil to begin to leak into a tributary to the Kalamazoo River in Michigan. Seventeen hours passed before the company responsible responded. Two years later, after that million-gallon tar sands oil spill, some sections of the Kalamazoo River remain off limits to swimming and fishing. In addition, around 130 homes have been rendered inhabitable because of the pollution associated with the tar sands oil.

This is a scenario that area residents and representatives of the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) fear could happen in the Lakes Region — if a Canadian-based company is permitted to pump tar sands oil along the 60-year-old pipeline that runs between Montreal and Portland. On Monday — the anniversary week of Michigan’s misfortune — more than 30 citizens dressed in black formed a human oil spill by lying on the golden sands of Raymond Public Beach. Earlier in the evening, the group held homemade signs in front of the Raymond

Boat Launch, where a curious, suntanned local resident sincerely wished them good luck. Two rally participants, Kevin and Lindsey Sheehan, who live in the Town of Sebago on the west side of Big Sebago Lake, said if tar sands oil were to be pumped along the pipeline that was constructed around World War II, a spill would spell out catastrophe for the region. “We draw our drinking water from the lake. So, this is close to our hearts,” said Kevin, who sported a T-shirt saying: “There is no Planet B.” “See around that point. Sheehan Island was named after

my folks. I used to spend my summers there. We had kerosene lamps, and no electricity,” Kevin recalled fondly. “That would be impacted first. If an oil spill happened here, it would migrate that way before it impacted our drinking water,” he said, adding that Portland Water District customers also rely on a clean source of H2O from the lake. Lindsey said she has been following the tar sands oil issue on the Internet for the past two years, and it concerns her. In fact, she has signed every antitar sands petition that has come TAR SANDS, Page A

During that weekend, Holly does not play hostess to her guests. Instead, she spends the majority of her time away from home. “We have a houseful, and they come and go. Both my husband and I work full-time during Casco Days. So, everyone has to fend for themselves,” she said. Hancock is the Casco Days co-chairman and the president of Casco Fire Association, the group that coordinates the annual threeday event.

Salmon Point campers’ structures questioned effect, approving its own application, he said. A policy is needed, he said, because “The town hasn’t signed off on any of these (structures) since Salmon Point was built.” But CDC member Mark Lopez questioned whether that was the best way to handle the situation. “I’d like to know of any other campgrounds in town where we are issuing building permits,” he said. Berkowitz said he knew of none. He said any approved

structures would have to be removed by the lot renters when they leave. He said the decks at the campground “have to be free-standing,” and therefore capable of removal. Selectman Bernie King agreed that Renneker was raising a good point, and that the placement of structures on campground lots should be in the lease. On June 29, town officials met with 21 Salmon Point campers, representing 14 sites, to hear their issues and concerns prior to updating the lease agreement. Accessory structures were not mentioned in notes Berkowitz drew up about the meeting. The concerns raised by campers included the need for increased security (there were several break-ins of stored campers last winter), narrowing of the depth and width of the channel at the lagoon, visitor fees and time limits and “their strong belief that Salmon Point should be kept as a simple campground and not try to become something it is not.” Conflicts of interest Selectmen also briefly dis-

Resident Chuck Renneker said LEA could solicit business sponsorships to fund the brochure.

cussed legal advice from the Maine Municipal Association on when a public official should recuse himself or herself because of a conflict of interest. Berkowitz said it was up to the board to decide whether a member has a conflict, and if so, that member should go sit with the audience and participate in that capacity, rather than as a selectman. Selectman Chairman Paul Hoyt leases a campground lot at Salmon Point. The MMA’s Senior Staff Attorney, Rebecca Warren Seel, wrote in response to a specific question regarding Hoyt’s participation in policy discussions concerning Salmon Point, that, “It is not enough simply to note the conflict for the record, and then proceed to participate in the board’s discussion and voting.” Seel’s opinion was that both state conflict of interest law and the town’s Code of Ethics “emphasize the importance of

Help needed to tidy up trails Loon Echo Land Trust needs volunteers to help with summer trail maintenance on the Ledges Trail of its Pleasant Mountain Preserve. Once again, Loon Echo staff will be joined by the Maine Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) and a group of hardy volunteers to continue with maintenance on the popular trail. This summer the trail workday is set for Saturday, July 28. “Learning proper trail maintenance methods from Maine AMC has made Loon Echo and its volunteers better stewards of the land we work so hard to protect,” said Loon Echo’s Stewardship and Volunteer Coordinator Jon Evans. “Trail maintenance is necessary and important for the health of the hiking area. It’s

always fun and everyone has a great sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.” The work involves cleaning drainage ditches, clipping brush and trail hardening. Some tools will be supplied, but you should come prepared with work boots, gloves, water and energy-rich snacks. And don’t forget your camera, because there’ll be some spectacular views along the way. Interested volunteers should meet Loon Echo staff at the Ledges trailhead, located three miles down Mountain Road from Route 302 in Bridgton at 7:45 a.m. This is a moderate-difficult hike and will last approximately five hours. Loon Echo Land Trust protects land in the northern Sebago Lake region of Maine. Its mission is to conserve the region’s

natural resources and character for current and future generations. Currently, Loon Echo protects over 4,000 acres of land, and Pleasant Mountain Preserve is one of six preserves that are open to the public. Other Loon Echo preserves include Bald Pate Mountain in Bridgton; Mayberry Hill Preserve in Casco; Hacker’s Hill Preserve in Casco; Sylvan Woods in Harrison; and Sebago Headwaters Preserve in Bridgton. Loon Echo currently maintains more than 20 miles of multi-use trails at these preserves. Find out more about Loon Echo by visiting For more information about trail maintenance day or other Loon Echo events, contact Jon Evans at or call 647-4352.

LEA seeks volunteer nature educators As summer speeds along, Lakes Environmental Association educators are getting ready for the upcoming school year. The start of school will be especially exciting this year, due to the introduction of a brand new nature program. On Oct. 4, 2012, LEA will launch its newest afterschool Watershed Naturalists program for the students of Lake Region Middle School. The Watershed Naturalist program will have a similar goal to LEA’s Discovery Kids (an elementary afterschool program) in its mission to encourage kids to spend time outside

exploring and learning about the natural world. Students will go on field trips to the parks, preserves, lakes, ponds, streams, bogs, vernal pools, forests, fields and mountains of Bridgton, learning about the ecosystem dynamics at each site. These guided seasonal explorations will foster a love of the natural world and will allow the students to become certified junior watershed naturalists. With the addition of the Watershed Naturalist program, and the continuation of Discovery Kids, LEA’s educators are looking for volunteers to help assist each program.

The major responsibility of the volunteer position will simply be to act as a responsible and helpful adult figure for the group. Both Discovery Kids and Watershed Naturalists meet once a week for the entire school year. However, volunteers do not have to sign up for every consecutive week for the entire school year. If they do not have the time to help every week, volunteers can pick and choose the days that work best for them. LEA just asks that each volunteer informs the educators a month in advance as to which days they will be assisting. Parents of children

attending the program are more than welcome to help out as volunteers. For anyone over 18, who likes be outside, working with kids, and exploring local watersheds, this is the perfect opportunity. These afterschool programs are a great way to get kids excited about the natural world and it is a wonderful way to experience the excitement of the woods through the eyes of a child. For more information about either program, or to sign up as a volunteer, please e-mail Sarah Morrison at or call 647-8580.

Like all birds, their bones are hollow, which reduces their weight and helps them in flight. Bonny Boatman will teach about these impressive and relatively lightweight birds (though not compared to the hummingbird) in BLUE HERON is the topic of this family program. • Natural History Course will an upcoming GLLT Family be held on Friday, Aug. 10, from Program on Aug. 3. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with Bridie McGreavy. The study of natural history gives language to our experience of nature and allows a deeper understanding of our place in it. To that end, the GLLT is offering a free natural history mini-course designed for the novice and experienced natural historian. In such a short time, we can only scratch the surface; however we can certainly have fun in the process. This is not intended as an athletic experience and it is hoped that participants will share their knowledge in the process. Most of the work will be a field experience, complimented by suggested readings. The curriculum may include some of the following: outdoor safety and ethics; animal tracking; birding; reading landscape history; and basic botany. The overall goal of the course is quite simple: to safely enjoy the forest by getting to know it better. Although you will be able to identify most of the common trees, plants, and wildlife after the experience, the real focus is to understand the connections within some of Maine’s ecosystems. Up to eight individuals can be accommodated. Please call the office 925-1056 or e-mail to reserve a space. The weekly natural history series presentations take place every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. The land trust also offers guided walks every Thursday and occasionally on Wednesdays. For more information on these and other GLLT programs — including dates, times, locations and directions — visit the website at, e-mail, or call 925-1056.

By Melinda Holmes Special to The News The last time my words met these pages, I was writing of an Egypt emerging from the high-tension drama of unseating an autocrat and pondering the rapid changes in herself and her neighbors. I was riding high on the wave of “post-revolution” excitement, watching as the majority of the Egyptian public easily embraced military rule while cautiously embarking on the new challenge of building political parties and transforming the bond of fleeting moments in Tahrir Square into relationships that would last into a future sure to be marked by power struggles. The wave crested and frothed throughout that summer and the clearing of the square on the eve of my first ever Ramadan, the holiest month in Islam. The transformations that my life has undertaken were catalyzed by time in the square and the streets of Cairo, but they were rooted much more deeply in an inexplicable bond with that country and a search to fill the voids of community left by years of travel and exploration. In seeking an explanation for the affinity and comfort I felt in Egypt, “community” is the answer that keeps presenting itself. Growing up in small-town Maine, quintessentially smalltown America, I never had to define community as an externality, a phenomenon to seek. It was always there in the wave off the steering wheel of strangers, but not strangers, passing by; and in that a trip to the grocery store takes twice as long for all the folks you meet; and in the flagrant support bestowed on Fourth of July parade float riders; and general enthusiasm for the town fireworks display, despite the recent legalization of fireworks, little of the novelty has worn off from this collective form of revelry. And while this engrained nature of rural community was integral to my development, it also left me without a mechanism to value, improve, or critique that sense of community. Leaving my hometown, Bridgton, was the best thing

I ever did for my relationship with it. When I left, I found myself drawn to communities, but in the big bad world out there these were more often self-created, along a continuum between default and deliberate. I was working in one of those deliberate communities, an international boarding school in Switzerland, found to its credit through a member of my original community, that I learned to value community as an asset. Community is to invest in, and to build upon, to hold close for a rainy day. When I arrived in Egypt, I was still seeking my community of choice. Fate had determined that I would be a temporary member, a tourist of communities, and on my repeated visits back to the hometown, I found that membership here required more physical presence than I had to give. Because Egypt is a community-based society, it was easy for me to understand some of its peculiarities that shock and trouble other interlopers not steeped in the traditions and ways of close-knit life. I felt instantly like I belonged, though I was foreign, and quickly found the relationships that characterize a community: the landlord who insisted on feeding me dates and told me all about each of his children; the juice guy on the corner who knew what I would order every day; the waiter at the coffee shop who smiled and nodded knowingly when I sat incongruously at the street-side table despite the sun. These are small things, but those which comprise the basis of community life, as you all know so well. And so it was that shopkeepers knew when and if I had arrived home in the evening. Translate this to the setting of the revolution and I found each apartment building with its own mini defensive security force; urban community defined not by metropolitan districting, but by neighborhood affiliation; security based partly on legal identity, but ensured more importantly by mutual recognition. This is the depth that those community ties bind people, depths which in our parts here are most often unexplored, yet for which we

must care and maintain for we may someday need to draw upon them. I found community in Egypt, with my revolutionary fellows, in my apartment block, on the street, and I allowed my defenses to be penetrated by the beauty of the people and their culture, their hopes and dreams. The mystery of my unfinished business with Egypt was solved when I fell in love with and married one with whom I had spent most of the 18 days, my Egyptian friend with the “large brown eyes” I previously wrote about. That was last year. I have returned to the United States with the intention on settling in for graduate studies. Looking forward to the sense of family, community and place I regaled him with, my husband, Osama Mohamed, joined me last fall. After some months bouncing around and back to Bridgton, we finally set about creating a life for ourselves in Boston, where I will be attending graduate school starting in about a month now. I am left now between places, attempting to join two worlds, two communities, two realities. So it is that I write here for you, as one activist friend states it (a young Egyptian woman, Shimaa from Tahrir Square, I met in New York actually, she was spending some time with Occupy Wall Street while on a speaking tour in the country). Because what I have seen of world news coverage and much of the resulting common consciousness in these parts contrasts so significantly from that which I have experienced, it is as though I have entered a bubble. I write to share

with you what I know in that deep spiritual sense of the word: that we have more in common than we have differences. In an attempt to convey context and promote cultural diplomacy, I am inviting you to take a return journey with me to Cairo. This summer, I will be returning with my husband for one month to Egypt. It will be Ramadan, for which Egypt is known across the Islamic world as the place to go for the richness of its celebration and observation. A time for fasting and prayer, family and festivity, Ramadan last year saw also violence by the powerful upon those who refused to trust in military rule. I will be writing a series of dispatches from Cairo. In these, I hope to show you a more comprehensive picture of Egypt and one that highlights the congruity of community life, which you will be able to identify with. It is a “work in process” column if you like for the broader project we are embarking upon, a sound and photo essay set exploring the continuity within Egyptian society as the context for the rapid political change, which has been so focused on since Mubarak stepped down a year and a half ago. You can check out the project page at, search for “Egypt: Between Ramadan and Revolution,” there are many more details there. We hope you will consider pledging your support, with it we hope to be able to curate this project to exhibit in Bridgton, Boston and beyond.

Casco Days opens will play at the gazebo at 7 p.m. “The Casco Fire Association (CFA) owns the rides. It has owned the Ferris wheel and merry-goround since the 1970s. The fire engine ride was purchased about 10 years ago,” Hancock said. Owning the rides and games allows CFA to hold Casco Days at a low cost. The association uses proceeds to help local groups and community causes. Most recently, CFA donated money to Loon Echo Land Trust for the purchase of the Hacker’s Hill parcel — a project to maintain public access to the mountain located on Quaker’s Ridge. According to Hancock, the hometown event has evolved since it began in 1935. “Casco Days used to be held in the Little Rigby Park, which is

The Monday after Casco Days, everyone pitches in to disassemble the rides and games, and store them for next year, Hancock said. “It is great to be able to still do a small-town community event like Casco Days. Many towns haven’t been able to continue to hold events like this,” Hancock said. “It’s very exciting to see everyone show up.

Barn talk Sunday LOVELL — The Lovell Historical Society is hosting a multimedia presentation by Don Perkins, “The Barn Guy,” on the history of Maine barns. Don, a former carpenter and woodworker, has a passion for barns and is well known for his engaging presentations and barn tours. He has a forthcoming book on the barns of Maine scheduled for publication this fall. Why were barns often painted red? How did the 19th-century phenomenon of interchangeable parts affect barn building? Why are cow tie-up areas whitewashed? Don can answer these and many other questions during his discussion. Perkins will be speaking in the Kimball-Stanford barn at the Lovell Historical Society on Sunday, July 29, at 6 p.m. Admission is free. Refreshments will follow. For further information, please contact the Lovell Historical Society at 925-3234 or visit the Barn Guy’s website at

Gas price watch

Average retail gasoline prices in Maine have risen 8.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.61 per gallon Sunday. This compares with the national average that has increased 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.49 per gallon, according to gasoline price website Including the change in gas prices in Maine during the past week, prices Sunday were 19.0 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 17.6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 2.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 20.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “Gasoline prices continue to rise across much of the nation, which is precisely what we had forecast earlier this year, so it does not come as much of a shock,” said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “I don’t expect the national average to break out of its mid-$3 per gallon rut until mid-to-late September, then we may get some action to the downside.” Here are prices for “regular” at area gas stations as of Wednesday at 10 a.m. (state average: $3.634, national average, $3.506):

Tar sands: Energy solution or environmental threat? (Continued from Page A) her way. “I feel like, maybe, today we are making some small progress,” she said. According to NRCM’s Clean Energy Director Dylan Veorhees, the company Enbridge Inc., which owns the pipeline in Michigan, is putting in place a plan to reverse the flow of at least one of two pipelines already buried underground. Instead of running crude oil north from the port of Portland to Canadian refineries, Veorhees said the tar sands would come from the Boreal forest in Canada, and travel south via pipeline before arriving in Portland for distribution

to eager markets. However, Ted O’Meara, a spokesperson for company said on Tuesday that such a plan is not in the cards. “There is no active project to reverse the flow and bring the tar-sands oil to Portland,” O’Meara said. According to Veohees, the potential route of the pipeline — if it followed the existing infrastructure from Canada — would be: Parallel to the Androscoggin River, then 50 miles from Bethel to Dixfield, then it would turn south through Albany, and the pipeline would follow the Crooked River, which it would cross six times. Part of the pipeline journey would include the shores of Big

Sebago Lake and Panther Pond in Raymond before its conclusion at the port in Portland. According to Veorhees, who addressed approximately 200 people at the Crooked Creek Community Center on July 19, Enbridge is getting its ducks in line to export tar sands oil. “I am here to tell you about an emerging project that would put this region at risk,” he told the crowd earlier this month. O’Meara said NRCM’s claim is not true. “There is no current project to do that,” he said. “First of all, there is a pipeline that is active and is being used. It is being used to ship crude oil, to bring it into the pipeline,” O’Meara said. “There is a terminal in South Portland,” he said, adding that the crude oil is brought to the terminal from around the world, from places such as the Mideast and South America. Then, the crude oil is “pumped to Canada, where it is refined.” O’Meara later sent a message from his phone to confirm that one of the two pipelines is in operation, and the 18inch-diameter pipeline is sitting idle. Enbridge, the Canadian company, was not contacted for this article. Not only does NRCM doubt that there is no plan on the table, but also the conservation group does not like the company’s track record. “The Montreal to Portland companies have said there is no plan to activate the pipeline at this time, but we don’t believe it because the pieces are all there,” Veorhees said last Thursday. If that were not a problem, the fact that tar sands oil is a different beast would pose one. “This tar sands has different properties than conventional crude oil. It is denser than water and it sinks to the bottom,” he HOW IT WOULD FLOW — The red line indicates the flow said. “The technology to clean path to bring tar-sands oil to Portland. up tar sands does not exist.” Dredging occurred in the Kalamazoo River to remove the earth that was tainted with tar sands, Veorhees said. Tar sands “is an oily mixture Building Contractor of sand and rock buried in soils of Canada,” he said. Repairs Tar sands oil “is mixed with Remodeling toxic chemicals to thin the oil

MAKING THEIR POINT — Windham residents, Julianne, 8, and Alexandra Fuller, 6, join their mom and other community members in a No-Tar-Sands-Oil rally in Raymond on Monday. The girls said they wanted to help protect Big Sebago Lake and the animals that live in and around the lake.

so it flows. When a spill occurs, benzene is released into the air,” he said. One teen, who attended Monday’s rally with her parents and brother, said all of this could be avoided if America pursued alternative sources of energy.

She hoped the rally in which she had participated would raise awareness about tar sands oil. “There are other alternatives that wouldn’t hurt the earth as much — such as hybrid cars,” said Sarah Rose Shuer, 14. “There are so many smart people around the world. If they put their heads together, they

could come up with something great,” Shuer said. NRCM staged the Monday evening protest at Big Sebago Lake. Other rallies were held at Bug Light Lighthouse in South Portland on Tuesday and at both Bolster Mills Bridge in Harrison and the Davis Park picnic area in Bethel on Wednesday.

Bridgton News sold

(Continued from Page A) someone who wanted to continue the tradition of a small weekly newspaper. Luckily, I was able to convince Wayne to accept the challenge,” he said. “Wayne has been the heart and soul of The News since he joined us and later became editor after my mother retired.” He added, “From the beginning, Wayne gave the extra effort to create excellence, which is reflected in his many Maine Press Association Better Newspaper Contest awards. He is the youngest member of the full-time staff so he should have the energy to do his job and mine, also.” Back on Sept. 9, 1870, founder Major Henry A. Shorey wrote, “In a certain sense, the launching of a newspaper in this place seemed an experiment, as several other men of experience in the ‘art of preservative’ and professional editorial had the thought of doing the very same thing, but who, after prospecting the field, had hardly sufficient faith in the scheme to attempt to carry it out.” After interviewing several in Bridgton, Major Shorey decided the “experiment” was worth a trial. The trial proved to be a success as The News has been a reliable source of information for Lake Region area readers and a platform for local advertisers for 141 years. Owned by one family, the newspaper was built on the premise to provide readers with fair, accurate and wellwritten stories. As editor, Eula Shorey impressed upon her staff the importance of accuracy and professionalism, as well as including a little bit of history whenever possible “so newcomers would understand how we got to this point.” Over the past 30 years, BN staff members consistently were recognized by their journalistic peers for writing excellence — a point of pride for the Shorey family. “During their lifetimes, and in particular the 1950s through the 1980s, my parents — Henry and Eula — focused much of their attention on the life of the town and the production of The Bridgton News. The paper was such a central part of our family’s existence that we often thought of it as a member of the family — my mother, my father, my broth-

er, myself and The Bridgton News,” said Stephen’s sister, Mary Shorey. “I believe each generation of Shoreys held it in the same regard. We are pleased that the BNews stayed a part of the Shorey family throughout my parents’ lifetimes and are equally pleased that it will stay in The Bridgton News family with ownership being passed down to someone who truly cares about the newspaper’s future and the town of Bridgton.” She added, “Wayne (Rivet) has been with the paper for many years, worked with my parents and my brother, and knows their concerns and wishes for Bridgton. He shares their enthusiasm for keeping the people of the Lake Region informed.” “I would like to thank all our employees for sticking by us, most of whom have been with us for decades. In this rough economy, it has been impossible to pay them what they deserve,” Stephen Shorey said. “Finally, I thank our readers and advertising customers. I always tried to give you more value than the competition, and I think I succeeded in that.” Challenges ahead Like media outlets across the country, The News has felt the economic pinch caused by the recession. “First, I thank all our loyal readers who continue to value receiving their copies of The Bridgton News each week. We will continue to seek readers’ opinions regarding what they would like to see. I truly believe weekly newspapers can survive in this ever changing communication world because of our local focus,” Rivet said. “Secondly, I thank our loyal advertisers. We are all struggling to survive in this difficult economy. We have all faced some difficult decisions regarding our operations. While ad revenue has declined, we appreciate all those who continue to believe in our product and continue to support our efforts by advertising within these pages.” Like Major Shorey, Rivet believes with hard work, commitment and support from the community, “the experiment” will continue to succeed for years to come.

EXCELLENCE IN NURSING — Janette LaPlante, RN, has received the DAISY Award at Bridgton Hospital for displaying excellence in nursing. Pictured (left to right) are Nancy Murphy, RN, Donna Goodridge RN, David Frum, Bridgton Hospital president, Jill Rollins, RN, Janette LaPlante RN, Daisy Award Winner, and Karen Harding, RN.

LaPlante earns a DAISY What is The Daisy Award at Bridgton Hospital? The DAISY Award honorees personify Bridgton Hospital’s remarkable patient experience. DAISY Award nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care, and they are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community. The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate nurses. Bridgton Hospital is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner and presents the award quarterly during the year. Bridgton Hospital presented its Daisy Award to Janette LaPlante, RN, on July 19.  Ms. LaPlante, a nurse in the Inpatient Unit, was nominated by her colleagues for this award. She was recognized specifically for her

compassion and care of an elderly patient’s spouse that did not drive, and needed assistance to care for her animals at home, as well as transportation to Central Maine Medical Center where her husband had been transferred. Ms. LaPlante graciously volunteered to take the spouse home, and then to CMMC, following her workday — truly going “above and beyond” for her patient. The DAISY Foundation was established in Glen Ellen, California, in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.) During Mr. Barnes eight-week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses at his hospital provided not only to him but to everyone in his family. So one of the goals

Local preference: pricey proposition? (Continued from Page A) Spencer and the town employees, Krieg wrote that “It was clear amongst the group that the level of research required to ensure that the (local preference) requirement is defensible will take considerable

time,” and that “the requirement may still be challenged, and the town should be made aware of this likelihood.” Krieg said that the legal research and review on municipal authority, even under Home Rule, will require “an

Gallery 302 searching for NEMOs Not the cute clownfish from the movie, NEMO refers to the NonExhibiting Member Organization, a new volunteer group at Bridgton’s creative arts cooperative gallery on Main Street. NEMO was recently started to assist with special events that are produced by the hard-working Gallery 302 artists. The gallery is recruiting volunteers in the community to periodically pitch in and do a few easy jobs in a convenient, clean and pleasant atmosphere. Summer is a good time to get a start in volunteerism! No previous training is necessary. After an initial, brief orientation to this rewarding activity, it makes everyone feel good and optimistic! The founding artists, who opened the gallery almost 10 years ago, have been presenting the annual show, “Art in the Park” since 2004 at Shorey Park. This

year, the outdoor arts fest will take place this Saturday, July 21, with food booths, live music by the mellow group “Skylark” and many local artists showing their jewelry, pottery, watercolor paintings and more. Preparing for and pulling off this event would normally take the effort of about 30 people, but only 15 supporters actually do the real work, with some doing double and triple duty… and they have fun doing it! Artists of the Bridgton Art Guild, who staff the gallery, also invite guest artists to show their work for several weeks at a time and introduce them during monthly “First Friday” evening receptions. Wine and appetizers are served and the public is invited to meet and greet the guest artist in a congenial atmosphere. NEMOs play an important role in helping this happen, as well. In summer, fun-filled auc-



they set in creating a Foundation in his memory was to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people by the super-human work they do everyday. In the fall of 2011, Bridgton Hospital joined The Daisy Foundation and hospitals across the country, in recognizing their nurses through this exceptional award. Ms. LaPlante, as a DAISY Award Honoree, was presented a bouquet of daisies, a DAISY certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch. Additionally, everyone in attendance celebrated with specially made cinnamon rolls. The significance of the cinnamon rolls is that Mr. Barnes especially enjoyed sharing cinnamon rolls with his nurses, and his family felt this should be a part of the ceremonies across the country.

(Continued from Page A) alternate for a one-year term. The Stewardship Committee’s job is an important one. It is charged with working with town departments on the maintenance and management of the property, which includes two entrance bridges and nearly three miles of walking trails. The committee will work to balance the park’s natural resources, including 5,000 feet of stream frontage, woodlands and floodplains, with recreational and educational resources, including a picnic pavilion, six picnic tables, signage and a dog loop trail that will eventually allow for bicycles. Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz said it was thought that the town would simply continue to accept applications until all four seats were filled. But Selectman Chairman Paul Hoyt said, “taking the first four that come along” was “not doing due diligence.” The town should select the most qualified individuals among a pool of candidates instead, he said. The board agreed to extend the deadline for applications until late August, and asked Berkowitz to really “push,” in Taft’s words, to encourage interested residents to apply. An application form is available on the town’s website, Hoyt added that “face to face” appeals are often best when inviting residents to come forward and serve; he said all of those in attendance at Tuesday’s board meeting probably knew of someone who would be a likely candidate and could make a personal appeal. Medcalf, who was at the meeting, said she was fine with waiting to be interviewed until such time that more applicants had applied to serve on the committee.

tions at the gallery proved to be profitable fundraisers for gallery operations. Fanciful fish of all kinds, painted, sequined, and feathered, started the trend, followed last year by lovely loons. These finely carved wooden critters were distributed for early display around Bridgton, then gathered en masse for an evening of thrills as the bidding went ever higher and winners squealed

with delight as the gavel struck — SOLD! Volunteer NEMOs will assist during this event. Not hard work, yet the rewards are many. Volunteers are valuable! Please consider becoming a NEMO and joining a great cause! Stop in at Gallery 302 for information. Contact Judy Alderman, NEMO volunteer coordinator, at 583-9112 or e-mail judyald@

extensive review, as there is no other known Maine municipality that has this requirement, nor is there case law; local preference in other communities is often a policy of a local housing authority, which is distinct.” Krieg said she has sent the work she has prepared thus far to Avesta officials, “as their preliminary plan would fall under this requirement.” She said Avesta has not responded with any opinion, but that she may formally ask them to comment, “as it will help the research to know what the arguments or challenges are from a possible applicant.” Selectman Bob McHatton, while saying “I absolutely believe in local preference,” said “I also believe in knowing how much it will cost.” Selectman Chairman Paul Hoyt agreed, saying, “You took the words right out of my mouth.” Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz said one problematic factor is that selectmen cannot base a decision on whether or not to draft a local preference ordinance on case law from other states. Some court rulings in other states have upheld a municipality’s right to impose local prefer-

ence, while others have found such ordinances to be a violation of fair housing laws designed to prevent housing discrimination. Berkowitz said he has been taking a “conservative” approach in researching the matter thus far, and that the Secretary of State “isn’t going to render an opinion,” and the Maine Municipal Association “wouldn’t touch it.” But he added that if the board requested it, he and Krieg could adopt a more politically-active approach, and “run it up the flagpole” with state officials. Mchatton said it was possible that the town could spend a lot on legal advice, only to find that Avesta has decided to abandon the Bridgton project. Selectman Doug Taft said that the town needs to look 10 or 15 years into the future, in any case, to address the town’s policy regarding affordable housing projects. One resident disagreed with Lopez’s suggestion that the board go ahead with drafting a local preference ordinance and deal with any legal challenges that might come from it, saying it would be “really reckless” to pursue such a course of action.

Joanna was educated by loving parents, the natural world, her artist-uncle William Beckstead, Austrian painter Sissi Ventrone, local painter and educator Duncan Slade, dancer Debi Irons, jeweler Dennis Creaser, among other professional fine artists. She continues to learn and explore the never-ending realm of creativity. For Joanna, art and creativity remain as truth and beauty in an otherwise illusory and ordinary world. Her creative process involves finding an inner center and working outward, while balancing technique with inspiration. When not creating fine art, she landscapes, hikes, dances, and buys, sells and trades books from The Maine Bookhouse in Oxford. She is

Two events at DAC

DENMARK — Two special events unfold this Sunday at the Denmark Arts Center. One show will be A Cat In Paris, an Oscar-nominated, handanimated French film which tells the story of Dino, a pet cat who leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little mute girl whose mother, Jeanne, is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night, he sneaks out the window to work with Nico — a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion — as he evades captors and slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. Dubbed in English. This is the show’s Maine premiere. Up next is The Journal. A group of kids find an ancient diary with a map in it. The map guides them to the artifacts of the diary writer’s life, including a pair of earrings. As the past comes alive in flashbacks, the kids work to solve a mystery: Who was the Elizabeth referred to in this ancient diary? The Journal is the product of the Denmark Arts Center’s annual Filmmaker’s Camp, and was conceived and shot over the course of a single week by the students!

The Oscar-nominated, hand-animated French film, A Cat in Paris, will be shown at 4 p.m. at the Denmark Arts Center, 50 West Main Street, Denmark.

Under the auspices of current director, Ben Jaffe, the son of founders Allan and Sandra, Preservation Hall continues with a deep reverence and consciousness of its greatest attributes in the modern day as a venue, band, and record label. The building that houses Preservation Hall has housed many businesses over the years including a tavern during the War of 1812, a photo studio and an art gallery. It was during the years of the art gallery that then owner, Larry Borenstein, began holding informal jam sessions for his close friends. Out of these sessions grew the concept of Preservation Hall. The intimate venue, whose weathered exterior has been untouched over its

and their friends initiated the first service as a way to keep religion and tradition alive on the Hill, once the central part of town. A few years earlier, the Congregationalists had moved their Sunday worship to a newer building at Spurr’s Corner, leaving the meetinghouse on Bell Hill vacant and uncared for. The strong community spirit shown by these early folks was reinforced in 1927, when the Bell Hill Meetinghouse Association was

incorporated, with the goals of maintaining the meetinghouse and continuing the tradition of worship on the hilltop. The 1839 Bell Hill schoolhouse adjacent to the meetinghouse will be open following the service and will extend the Finnish theme. There, visitors may examine dozens of items loaned by the FinnishAmerican Society of West Paris, including traditional clothing, toys, and household items.

history, is a living embodiment of its original vision. To this day, Preservation Hall has no drinks, air conditioning or other typical accoutrements, strictly welcoming people of all ages interested in having one of the last pure music experiences left on the earth. The PHJB began touring in 1963 and for many years there were several bands successfully touring under the name Preservation Hall. Many of the band’s charter members performed with the pioneers who invented jazz in the early twentieth century includ-


When Jean Lipman searched in the 1930s for who had painted all the circa 1824-1840 New England wall murals, she eventually discovered they were by Rufus Porter and his nephew, Jonathan Poor. Her identification of him eventually became part of her famous biography, Rufus Porter, Yankee Pioneer, published in 1969. Lipman was a renowned folk art collector and the publisher of Art in America magazine. Elizabeth Stillinger and Ruth Wolfe, a former associate of Jean Lipman’s, will discuss Jean’s collection on Friday, July 27 in Bridgton, as part of the Rufus Porter Museum’s annual Cultural Heritage Series program. Stillinger has recently published A Kind of Archeology, which discusses the pioneer folk art collectors from 18761976, and Wolfe is a contributing editor to Expressions of Innocence and Eloquence, the Jane Katcher Collection compilation. Both have written numerous books on folk art. Their lecture affords a rare opportunity to revisit the collections of many of our major museum founders, and to learn more of their identification of the term, “folk art,” and what it meant to the collectors who coined the term.

Author to speak about new book (Continued from Page B) from hearing on the radio the findings of a “one in a million” blue lobster catch on the United States coastline, she created this unique children’s book that can be enjoyed by all because of its moral and understanding. This tale teaches that acceptance is the only way, because one day, the one who is different may become a star. The Blue Lobster certainly

did become a star as TaylorChiarello released a second book called The Blue Lobster’s Holiday! in which diversity and love is shown loud and proud. Taylor-Chiarello is an advocate for multi-cultural children’s environments, and about loving no matter how different a being might be. She brings forth those morals in this diverse tale of celebration, giving, acceptance and the spirit of the holidays.

‘The Castle’ headlines region house tour by Cheryl Harmon Naples Correspondent 693-4016 The Annual Lake Region House Tour sponsored by the Naples Public Library will be on Thursday, Aug. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This fundraiser will benefit the Naples Library. You can get your tickets at the library or the Country Sleigh, or the day of the tour when you arrive at the library at 9:30 a.m. Tickets are $20 each. Two of the six houses are “The Castle” on Long Lake, with its spectacular views; and The “Old Meeting House” in Sweden.

When you get your ticket you will receive a map to all the homes, and you are on your own to go at your own pace. You can also go to the Grand Opening of the Naples Historical Museum on the Village Green. The museum has taken up residence in what was newly built on the site of the “Old Fire House.” The hose tower was refurbished as well, to show how they had to string the hoses up after a fire so they could drain and dry, unlike the hose of today. You can browse around the Old Glass Museum, which has taken up

residence in the Old Town Office. Last year’s tour was a big hit. It’s a good way to help the library and to see the inside of houses you have wanted to see. One of our Red Hat Ladies, Millie Davis, is in Central Maine Medical Center, recuperating from bypass surgery. I’m sure she would like to hear from folks. Here is her address: CMMC, 300 Main Street, Lewiston, ME 04240, room 318. Keep her in your prayers, and add Beulah Ayer as well, for both to have speedy recoveries. See you all on Friday at the Methodist Church at noon. The Edes Falls Sewing Circle will be having a yard sale at the Community Hall on Saturday, Aug. 18, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine.

Democrat ribbon cutting held

NORWAY — The Oxford County Democrats held a ribbon cutting celebration at the Norway office on July 14 during the Norway Art Fair. Congressman Mike Michaud did the ribbon-cutting honors, assisted by local candidates including Dennise Whitley of Norway, candidate for State Senate in District 13, Mary Lou St. John of Norway, candidate of State Representative in District 95, Colin O’Neill of Oxford in District 100, Mike Broderick of Bethel in District 91, Charleen Chase of Bethel, candidate for County Commissioner, and Carol Gutekunst of Norway, candidate for Register of Probate. The group, accompanied by Oxford County Treasurer Roy Gedat, and Norway Office Intern Ashley Blake, spent an

hour touring the festival. Following the ribbon cutting, Congressman Michaud visited with attendees in the Norway office. In addition to the office being open all day, a street-side table was staffed by Miriam Laster of Norway and Jim Burke of South Paris, providing an abundance of stickers and materials, as well as a popular life-size replica of President Obama. The canopy in the nonprofit area of the fair was staffed by volunteers from EqualityMaine Oxford County, providing free face painting and an opportunity to pledge support for Yes on One. Democratic candidates were much in evidence at the Ossipee Valley Fair parade on July 13, with Rep. Helen Rankin leading the delegation in the 2 1/2-mile parade. Also

participating were Whitley, Chase, Gutekunst and Gedat. This event was well attended, and Gedat commented, “It appeared that everyone along the route knew Helen Rankin.” Prior to her legislative service, Rep. Rankin was the Food Service director for the SAD 55 School District. The Oxford County Democratic Office at 55 Main Street in Mexico began operations July 9, and has completed a busy week of setting up under the direction of Jimmy and Brenda McHugh of Mexico and Senator John Patrick. County Chair Cathy Newell organized two phone banks in Mexico, as well as two in Norway. Anyone interested in electing Democratic candidates is invited to contact Newell at 875-2116.

Not to leave the choir out, they sang the offertory, My Savior.

Harry W. Hepburn III

Appraisals made tonight RAYMOND — The Raymond-Casco Historical Society is sponsoring “Antique Appraisals” with Harry W. Hepburn III on Thursday, July 26, at 5 p.m. at the Raymond-Casco Historical Museum, Route 302 in Casco. After a fantastic turnout for the “Antique Clock Appraisal Night” on Feb. 13, Hepburn will once again be offering his expert advice on antiques. There will be no charge to attend, however there will be a charge of $5 per appraised item, with a three-item limit. This will be an excellent opportunity to have your antiques appraised. Hepburn III has been a notable and well-respected full-time antiques dealer since 1971, and has been working on antique clocks since 1968. He is a licensed and bonded auctioneer and appraiser of antiques and personal property since 1977. He is well-recognized throughout New England as an authority on early clocks, period furniture and their accessories. Hepburn is on the Board of Directors of the Maine Antique Dealers Association, and he is also the president of the Maine Chapter of the National Clock & Watch Collectors Association. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be served throughout the event. For more information, visit the society’s website at www.raymondcascohistory. org or call Pam Grant at 655-2438.

(Continued from Page B) field looked so busy with all the canopies and tents for the many organizations and the crafters. The music in the Gazebo by the Blue Willow Band had everyone either wanting to dance or just keeping time to the beat. Fantastic, Jon. The committee of Bethany Armington, Carol Craig, Chicky Deschambeault, Rachel Kuvaja, Rose Micklon, Stan Tupaj, and Mary Anne Vitella decided that this year the celebration would be held in memory of past Old Home Days members Scott Thomas, Paul Walker and Phyllis Chandler. Well done. The Brick Church concert for Thursday, July 26, features the Mollyockett Chorus. The ladies singing in this group come from three counties of Maine. Their new show, “Sentimental Journey,” tells about one of the members who had retired but goes missing. Worried, her friends sing their way from Hawaii to Maine in search of their friend. What a great idea for singing songs from across our great country. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.; expect a great time. The Greater Lovell Land Trust walk on Thursday, July 26, will be at the Heald-Bradley Pond Reserve, where participants can sit on the viewing platform at Perkey’s Path in hopes of seeing a great blue heron. This is an easy walk, but don’t forget water and bug repellent. On Wednesday, Aug. 1, the Greater Lovell Land Trust Natural History Series subject will be “Things to Know and Things to do in the Great Outdoors.” Bridie McGreavy will introduce ways to enjoy the nature around you, and appreciate what it gives you in the learning. This program is for all ages, from three to 103. This free program is held at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library and starts at 7:30 p.m. The 2012 Dave Mason Greater Kezar Lake Tennis Tournament will take place on Friday through Sunday, Aug.

3-5, with matches beginning at 9 a.m. each day. With work that’s been done on the courts and the surrounding area, there is now a pleasant area to bring a chair and sit and enjoy the great tennis this tournament provides. Some of the players have been playing the tournament for years, enjoying every moment. Once again, the Stow Corner Store is sponsoring the tournament, trying to become a close friend of the community. Fun in the Sun is the theme for the United Church of Christ Summer Fair, to be held on Saturday, July 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be something for everyone, baked

goods — yummy, a gift table of all sorts of articles for a special gift, a treasure table for items slightly used, and (very interesting and the one I love) the flower table, with fresh flower bouquets that just smell so good. There will be a luncheon served of delicious tea sandwiches, fruit, a beverage and dessert, starting at 11 a.m. Take an easy day, and seek and you will find just what you’re looking for — food or gift or flowers. On Sunday, July 29, Don Perkins, also known as the “Barn Guy,” will be talking about barns at the Lovell Historical Society at the Kimball Stanford

House on Route 5, starting at 6 p.m. This slide show will whet the appetite of any person interested in the history of old barns and their uses in the old days. Come and hear Don tell his tales and get ready for the barn tour, which will take place on Sunday, Aug. 12. Refreshments will be served. Well, we’re looking at August soon, and that means that the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library is working up to the 37th Arts and Artisan Fair, which will take place on Saturday, Aug. 18, at the New Suncook School. Every year, artisans donate items to the DRESS, Page B

NAPLES — Dress is casual. The music culled from the “Golden Oldies.” The night is clear (hopefully). DJs spin tunes to which you love to listen and dance. The old Songo River Queen II cruises quietly on Long Lake. Refreshments abound and the cash bar is open. Door prizes available for the winning. Fifty/fifty chances to be had. The Naples Lions serving as your hosts. Welcome to the ninth annual Songo River Queen Cruise Night, sponsored by the Naples Lions Club. Before you board the Queen, take a moment to observe the rare and antique automobiles (furnished by the Pleasant Mountain Obsolete Auto Club) parked along the Causeway as DJs Tracy and Tony spin favorite oldies tunes. All this is available on Saturday, July 28, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Sailing time is set for 7:30 p.m. Formerly known as the “Fifties Cruise,” the event, always held on the last Saturday of July, was renamed the “Golden Oldies Cruise” since only those over 70 can remember the decade of the

birth of rock and roll. It was decided that there were a few acceptable tunes, which come from subsequent decades as well. Tickets are limited to 200 people, and are available for $20 per person at the Songo River Queen II ticket booth, Romah Motor Inn, the Augustus Bove House or from

any Naples Lions Club member. All cruise proceeds will be distributed among the several local charities and nonprofit groups, which the club supports annually. Oh, and if you can’t make this cruise, an identical event is planned for the Sept. 1, the Saturday of Labor Day weekend.

NAPLES — The Naples Public Library Annual Summer Art Sale is scheduled to be held on Saturday, July 28, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. along with the Annual Yard Sale, in the Naples Town Hall on the Village Green. This year’s sale features over 100 original watercolor paintings, as well as some prints. For this “special sale,” all matted paintings and prints will be $10. The paintings that are framed will be $25. The library is very fortunate to have so many talented local artists that generously donate their work for the sale each

year. There are always many lovely paintings in a wide range of subjects, many with Maine themes. This is a great opportunity to find a special hostess gift, birthday or Christmas present or something special for your home. The artists have done some wonderful paintings for you to choose from, so don’t miss this special sale!

Proceeds pay for environmental education in elementary schools in Bridgton and Harrison and for the Hey You Cruise, the culminating activity for hundreds

of area sixth graders who have studied water quality. Adults interested in gardening topics are invited to the club’s lectures, open to the public, held at meetings in the spring and fall. Collaboration with artists takes place at the annual Art in Bloom at Gallery 302, scheduled this year for Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3 and

Summer scene

SLLMF musicians to perform this Sunday HARRISON — The SebagoLong Lake Music Festival musicians will be performing on Sunday, July 29 at 7 p.m. at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Bridgton in a concert for listeners of all ages. Violinists Tim Lees and Phil Palermo, violist Laurie Kennedy, cellists Bonnie Thron and Eliot Bailen and flutist Susan Rotholz will guide the audience through a fantastical journey from Madrid to France to the Andes Mountains of South America through the music of Boccherini, Mozart, Debussy and Ginastera. The concert, supported by the Robert and Dorothy Goldberg Charitable Foundation, is free; donations will be accepted. The Festival returns to Deertrees Theatre in Harrison for the third of its Tuesday night concerts on July 31, at 7:30 p.m. “Debussy at 150” honors Claude Debussy, 150 years after his birth. The program consists of a work that shows the influence of Debussy on another composer/pianist, a great work by Debussy himself, and a work that perhaps could have been premiered by Debussy, if only it had been

ready in time. The first piece is Lyric for Strings, by George Walker, a contemporary composer and pianist, who was the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. Originally written in memory of his grandmother when he was 19, it later became the slow movement of his String Quartet No. 1. It is a tender, melodious piece, full of dignity and sorrow, with harmonic suggestions of Debussy, whom Walker claimed to have been influenced by as a young man. Performers are Tim Lees and Phil Palermo, violins; Laurie Kennedy, viola; and Eliot Bailen, cello. The quartet then moves on to Debussy’s String Quartet in G Minor, Op. 10. This is the only string quartet Debussy wrote. Composed just before his very famous Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, this work represents his transition from Romanticism to Impressionism. Part traditional, part exploratory, it is at times playful, teasing, moody, musing, soaring, hinting at the new musical harmonies and sense of melting atmosphere for which Debussy became so famous.

Last on the program is Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A Minor, Op. 50. This work was commissioned by Tchaikovsky’s patroness, Madame von Meck, who wanted a piece to showcase the young pianist of her “inhouse” trio, Claude Debussy! However, Tchaikovsky procrastinated because he didn’t think he could reduce his symphonic scope to a trio. It took the death of a dear friend and mentor, who was also a pianist, to prompt Tchaikovsky to carry out this commission, and by then, Debussy was not around. This is a huge, passionate work in the Romantic/Russian tradition, expressing past joys and loss. Musicians for this demanding work are Mihae Lee, piano, Timothy Lees, violin, and Bonnie Thron, cello, a trio that enjoys playing together, and which Festival audiences look forward to hearing each year. From quiet depths to outright passion, this is a luscious program — an entirely appropriate nod to Claude Debussy. Treat yourself! Tickets for the concerts at Deertrees are $25. Tickets for anyone 21 years of age and under are free and available

LOVELL — July has been a very fast month for Silas Eastman. It started with an impressive win at Bridgton’s 4 on the Fourth race and continued on Saturday at Lovell’s Old Home Days 5K where he shattered the previous course record of 16:10, set in 2006 by David Hunt, with a time of 15 minutes 37 seconds. Eastman, 17 of Chatham, N.H., will be a senior this fall at Fryeburg Academy. Terry Ballou repeated as overall female winner with a time of 19:10.

Both Eastman and Ballou received awards designed by Conway glassblower, Nathan Macomber. One hundred-twenty eight competitors ran the course that finished at the Lovell Athletic Field. “What a joy to see Carol Roberts, running her first race ever, finish with a smile on her face,” said Stan Tupaj, race director. “The mother-daughter duo of Sarah and Michelle Boucher were just one of many family combos to enjoy the race. And how about Bryce Thurston

and his son Jake, finishing the race in the top 20 and then returning to the course to escort Laurie Ramsay to the finish line?” Race proceeds are evenly split between the Lovell Recreation Department and the Old Home Days Parade.

Cloning Tuesday races the trend David Eddy’s Thistle once again took first place at the third race of the Lake Region Sailing Club Tuesday Night Race Summer Series. This sailing season has been looking like repeats week to week. Is it Tuesday? Must be light to moderate airs dying to a drifter! The only significant difference was the wind direction, this time from the south. As a result, the first mark was set off Bluff Point rather than near Bell’s. With a thunderstorm-ridden front due to come in from “New Hampsha Way,” one of the towboats had a laptop and wireless hotspot uplink with NOAA Radar refreshing on the screen to allow the changing weather to be monitored. Like the previous Tuesday, the first boats set off in moderate but dying airs, with most holding to the left on starboard. The later faster-rated vessels

TIGHT FORMATION during recent Lake Region Sailing Club Tuesday Night Race Summer Series on Long Lake. saw a progressive lift and were able to ride up over the earlier starters. It was looking like Eddy’s Thistle “Gwaihir” to be first to the weather pin, but

ambiguous airs and nice sailing by Bob Bean and crew on the J22 “Rampage” gave that boat rounding honors. However, in light stuff such as was coming

to be the norm for Tuesday evenings, “Rampage” had to swing a bit wide, and into the gap went Eddy’s Thistle, off on leg two and never to be challenged again. Meanwhile, the balance of the fleet worked back from the left side, sailing in a massive header that no one really wanted. The storm clouds loomed large over Pleasant Mountain, rumbles were heard from the west and an occasional distant bolt was seen. Time to call the race for safety’s sake! Positions were noted by race committee and boats returned to their respective harbors. On to next Tuesday then! Final Results 1. Fast Eddy and Stephean Chute, Thistle, “Gwaihir” 2.

He will continue in his roles of director of Hockey, head coach of Junior Hockey, and Admissions counselor. New soccer coach Adam Perron is the school’s new head soccer coach and College Counselor. Adam joins Bridgton Academy from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where he has served as the assistant men’s soccer coach and goalkeeping coach. Prior to his time at UMass, Adam was the interim head coach for the men’s soccer program at Utica College. He also played professionally for two professional teams: the Mass Twisters and the Albany Highlanders. Adam is a graduate of Colby-Sawyer College in New Hampshire, holding a degree in Sports Management. While at Colby-Sawyer, he was a fouryear starter at goalkeeper, and was also named Team MVP in 2004. “We’re excited to have Adam aboard; he brings tremendous knowledge about the game of soccer as well as an

awareness of what it takes to be a successful NCAA student athlete. His coaching and playing background provides him with an excellent foundation to continue to build and develop Bridgton Academy soccer,” said Joe Sawicki, Bridgton Academy’s Athletic Director. Upon his new appointment, Adam said, “I would like to thank Headmaster Vigneau, Joe Sawicki, and the rest of the Bridgton Academy family for affording me the opportunity to be a part of the community as the head soccer coach. I look forward to the challenge of combining my collegiate coaching as well as professional playing experience to help Bridgton Academy student athletes reach their collegiate goals both on and off the field.” “It is encouraging to again see such a high quality coach come from the college game to lead one of our athletic programs. Adam brings leadership and experience that aligns with our mission and will serve our students well as they take advantage of their year at Bridgton,” said Headmaster Vigneau. Coach Perron arrived on campus this week and is excited to begin his tenure at the Academy.

“...We had looked upward where the summer sky, Tasselled with clouds lightwoven by the sun, Sprung its blue arch above the abutting crags O’er-roofing the vast portal of the land...” — from “In the Crystal Hills” by John Greenleaf Whittier By Allen Crabtree Guest Writer Mount Will offers a delightful loop trail to the North and South Ledges of this mountain near the Sunday River Ski Area in Bethel. The Mount Will trail was first laid out in 1991 and it is one of several trails in the Bethel area developed by the Town of Bethel Conservation Committee. It passes through 165 acres of the Bethel Town Forest. The trail is well marked by blue blazes and offers the additional highlight of nature trail signs along the trail to the North ledges with comments on the flora and local history that the trail passes. The loop trail is classed “moderate” because of some steep sections at the ledges. There are fairly good views from the North ledges below the North Peak summit and better ones from the South ledges at the South Peak. The Androscoggin River valley spreads out below the South ledges — a perfect spot for a lunch break in any season. The loop trail can be done in either direction, but most hikers seem to ascend using the north (right) loop and descend on the south (left) loop. The Denmark Mountain Hikers climbed Mount Will in early spring with the vestiges of winter snow and ice still on the trails. We found the trails, particularly climbing and descending the ledges, to be icy and required micro-spikes and requiring a longer time. A summertime hike will not present any of these problems. Hike facts Mount Will is located in Newry in Oxford County,

TAKING IN THE VIEW — Some of the Denmark Mountain Hikers take a lunch break on the South Ledges of Mount Will on April 8, 2011. (Photo by Allen Crabtree) Difficulty: Moderate with steep parts. Trail distance to the ledges and return (loop trail): 3.2 miles from trailhead. Hiking time to the ledges and back (loop trail): 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours. Elevation gain: 1,704 feet (North Peak) or 1.726 feet (South Peak). Vertical gain: 984 feet (North Peak) or 1,006 feet (South Peak). Coordinates: 44 26 N 70 56 W. Directions: To the trailhead, take US 2 east from Bethel Village toward Newry Corner. Pass the Riverside State Rest Area, the turnoff to the Sunday River Ski Area (l) and at 1.9 miles beyond the Rest Area look for the Bethel Recycling and Transfer Station on the right. The Mount Will Trail parking area and trailhead are across US 2 on the left. The trail: The Mount Will Trail is a loop allowing an ascent of either the South Peak or the North Peak from the same trailhead. If you take the right fork (blue blazes), it will climb to the North ledges in about 0.7 miles.

The loop trail then follows along the contour climbing and descending but at a generally level pitch except for a short steep descent of ledges. The South ledges with views of the Androscoggin River are reached in about 2.2 miles from the trailhead, and it is about a mile more back to the trailhead, descending more steep parts from the ledges. What to bring: Good

boots, rain or wind gear, touring poles, tick and mosquito repellant, sunglasses, water and snacks, personal first aid kit, matches, map, compass and cell phone. Let someone know your hiking plans before you leave! Next: The next hiking column will be on the Sugarloaf Mountains in Zealand, N.H.

It Dawned on Me by Dawn De Busk News Columnist

Nine magical birthdays

Somehow, in our human minds, the most magical birthday exists. Whether it is a figment of our imaginations or it is attainable, I was bound and determined to deliver exactly that to my daughter. Therein lies the flaw of being a parent, you cannot deliver perfection — at any price. Sometimes, it almost seems possible (at least according to the Star Trek movies I have seen) to slow down time, open the senses fully, relax the worries, and suddenly see how the flawless moment hangs before us and is achievable in every, next breath. Until… the next demand comes along. During this seventh month of the 2012 calendar year, the child to whom I gave birth celebrated her ninth year on Planet Earth on the ninth day of July. Danielle Kathleen turned 9 on July 9. What a day that was. The weekend birthday party had moments of absolute craziness with its mixed gender crowd and multiple outdoor activities, including the extreme slide 30 feet above the ground, and bike rides up and down the dirt road — taking place simultaneously. In the same breath, I literally experienced brief moments of relaxation because everyone was having fun and no one had been seriously injured along the way. After all, weeks before, I had removed every single granite rock from the end of the slide, as I was wary of head injuries happening when children plowed down that plastic apparatus with its three-foot drop. Also, I had memorized where the rocks and other objects existed at the end of the dock Dani’s dad had constructed in June. Later, I alerted the row of children as to where not to jump. Each time someone leapt from the dock, I held my breath, and then thanked my lucky stars for yet another averted spinal injury. Plus, thank you, community! I had three other adults present — all people upon whom I could count. There was that moment of joy for me when all the children had discovered how the sand beneath their feet slid down where the swimming hole became deeper. Everyone was yelling, “Help, quick sand!” and I actually had to make several somewhat daring (but pretend) rescues amid the merriment and the splashing. As I had half expected, most children raised in southern Maine have learned how to swim in fresh water venues. These kids were stellar in their swimming abilities. That slowed my heart rate a little. Then and there, with the afternoon sun shining down on the MAGICAL, Page D

Satisfaction of images Front Row Seat by Tom McLaughlin News Columnist

Just as I write mostly for myself, my photographs are selfish too — and lately I’m deriving more satisfaction from images than from words. They’re related, though. Good novelists catalyze images, which are, in turn, subjectively modified in readers’ minds. While reading a good story, there’s a movie playing on the back of my forehead that I view with my mind’s eye, so to speak.

Conversely, “A picture,” goes the proverb, “is worth a thousand words,” but those words need not be spoken. The picture might just speak for itself and spoken words may be insufficient. Every day, I expect to see beauty, so I take my camera wherever I go. If it’s not hanging off my shoulder, it’s not far away in my vehicle. Should my pictures capture some imperfect, but reasonable facsimile of my

Beauty: The eye of the beholder

beautiful witness, some appreciation may then be kindled in others viewing it. Encounters with beauty quicken feelings. If nothing is troubling me, serenity helps me to see the beauty I might otherwise have missed if I were melancholic. When I expect beauty, it usually appears. When it does, it magnifies serenity, which helps me see still more beauty. “Beauty” defined is: “the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).” As most of my pictures are attempts to capture

Knowing the right of way on the water On the Water by Ron Terciak, JN Past Commander U.S. Power Squadrons Long Lake Marine Patrol While on our lakes, when approaching another boat, do you know who has the right of way? Generally speaking, if boats are approaching head on, each is the give way vessel and should turn to the right or starboard with each boat passing on the left or port.

Note: This is the third of a three-part series on diabetes coverage. By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor Insulin is covered by Part B or Part D, depending on how you inject the insulin into your body. If you inject insulin with a needle or a syringe, the Medicare prescription drug benefit (Part D) covers the insulin and any supplies you need to inject it. This includes syringes, needles, alcohol swabs and gauze. How much your insulin will cost depends on which Part D plan you’re in, the type of insulin you need, and the pharmacy where you buy it. Part D also covers other drugs you may use at home to treat your diabetes as long as they’re on your plan’s list of covered drugs. If you use an insulin pump, Part B covers the pump and the insulin as durable medical equipment (DME). If you have Original Medicare, you or your Medicare Supplement insurer will pay 20% of the cost of the insulin and the pump after you meet your deductible — so long as you get the supplies from a Medicare-certified supplier. If you’re in a Medicare Advantage plan, your plan may have different rules, restrictions and costs. Call your plan to find out what you need to do to get your diabetes supplies covered. Stan Cohen, a Medicare Volunteer Counselor, is available for free, one-on-one consultations at Bridgton Hospital on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 11 a.m. No appointment is necessary. Alternatively, call the Southern Maine Agency on Aging (800-427-7411) and ask for a Medicare Advocate. Mr. Cohen will not be available from now through July 31.

When boats approach from either the left or right the following rules apply: A boat on your starboard has the right of way. A good rule to remember is that the boat on your right would be showing a red light at night. Red equals stop. By the same token, a boat coming from your left side would be

showing a green light at night. Green indicates go. This would work fine if all boaters were knowledgeable, but while you may have the right of way be prepared for the boater who is not knowledgeable and give way. It is the boater’s responsibility to avoid collisions at all costs. The recent tragedy on Kezar Lake, where a father severed his daughter’s leg in a boating accident, once again underscores the danger of anyone riding on the bow of a boat. While this boat was a bow-

rider built to have passengers up front, there are boaters who think nothing of putting their children on the bow of boats not intended for that purpose. You never know what might lurk beneath the surface of the water or that wake action caused by a careless boater might throw your passengers into the water. Placing your children (or adults) on the bow other than bow-riders is tantamount to putting your passengers on the hood of your car and driving down Route 302. RIGHTS, Page D

What is the best way to keep cool on a hot day in July? This afternoon, I am sitting beside the shore, enjoying a southwest breeze and the sight of half a dozen boats pulling colorful inflated tubes filled with shrieking, laughing children. Here, in the shade of tall trees, partially hidden by thick alder shrubs, it is relatively cool and quiet. The forest floor is covered with dried brown oak leaves, ferns, and other low growing plants, and when I lean down to pick a dark green shiny leaf and crumple it between my fingers it releases the delicious aroma of wintergreen. Even the rocks are interesting, of various sizes and shapes, and beautifully decorated with gray-green lichens. A rotted stump, wearing a bright green crown of moss, has a fat brown mushroom growing on it. On one side of the mushroom, there are teeth marks, where some little critter has nibbled it. I have chosen to sit in this fairly comfortable quiet corner of our yard, in the shade, with a cool breeze, as a way to avoid the heat. Human bodies have limited ability to cope with heat. We are unable to tolerate more than a few degrees of fluctuation in body temperature, so are especially susceptible to overheating. Fortunately, though, we are equipped with sweat glands that release excess heat through perspiration, and we have learned to JULY, Page D

Retirement for many of them became an impossible dream. While I understand that the Affordable Care Act has been a source of some debate, what is clear is that the law improves Medicare.

Early detection is so important with serious health issues and this benefit can help many of

us stay healthier longer. The Affordable Care Act also closes the Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage or “doughnut hole” so our out-of-pocket costs will go down significantly in the future. With benefits such as these, the Affordable Care Act improves our health supports and programs. We will be better off because of it. As we mark the anniversary of Medicare on July 30, I feel that this is indeed something to celebrate. Jane Magnus AARP Outreach Volunteer Windham LETTERS, Page D

Let’s get Maine working Views from Augusta by Paul LePage Governor of Maine

It’s the number one debate on the national front, and no, I’m not talking about Obamacare. While we must find a solution to our health care crisis, what Americans and Mainers are most concerned with is the uncertainty of our economy — in short, jobs or the lack thereof. But, is there really a shortage of jobs? Forbes recently noted that while hiring remains slow, nearly

by Bill Diamond State Senator, D-Windham

Even though we are in the midst of a hot, dry summer, this is the best time to take action if you want to save money on heat this winter. The best, simplest way to cut your heating bills is to improve the efficiency of your house. This week, I’d like to tell you about a program offered by Efficiency Maine that can help you make the changes to your home that will cut your heating costs not just for this winter, but for many winters to come. The program is called PACE, and it allows homeowners to improve their home’s energy efficiency with a low-interest loan of up to $15,000. PACE loans can be used for a wide array of improvements including insulation, air sealing (foam and caulk), heating system upgrades and efficient hot water heaters. The eligibility rules for PACE are reasonable, as well. A property owner needs to have the following to get a PACE loan: a credit score of 660 or above, a debt to income ratio of no greater than 45%, and the property cannot be subject to any outstanding tax or sewer liens. You also have to live in a participating community. In my

Safe children

To The Editor: Mr. Sandusky, a coach at Penn State University, was found guilty of 45 counts of sexual abuse to several boys. Monsignor Lynn, a clergy secretary, was found guilty for shielding predatory priests. At Horace Mann, an exclusive preparatory school, a teacher admitted to sexually abusing students. In Maine, Robert Joubert, a youth baseball and hockey coach who runs Seacoast Baseball Academy in York, is facing sexual abuse charges against boys he coached in New Hampshire. These incidents all occurred within the last few weeks. They are the tip of the iceberg. REACH, Oxford County’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services, knows all too well how often children are sexually abused. Two-thirds of all sexual abuse cases reported to law enforcement agencies, and to sexual assault centers, involve the sexual abuse of our children. One in three females and one in six males are sexually abused or assaulted in their lifetime. Children have a right to be safe, and it is up to adults to look out for children — to know where they are, who they are with, and what they are doing.

In addition, it is up to adults to have on-going conversations with young children and teens about what is and isn’t safe regarding their bodies, what rights children have, and whom children can talk to about anything. It is up to adults to educate children about ways that some adults may try to hurt them — adults they know, and may know well. Often, it is adults that are well known and respected in the community. Mr. Sandusky “groomed” the boys he sexually abused. Children need to know the tricks some adults use. Since 2007, REACH educators have been presenting the “Child Lures” program to elementary classes throughout Oxford County. This program informs children about many of the ways adults (and teens) lure children to trust/trick them into doing what an adult wants. Education is power and may decrease the prevalence of sexual abuse to our children. The Child Lures program discusses many of the lures used by Mr. Sandusky (and others) to gain access and the cooperation of the multiple boys he sexually abused — authority, affection, bribery, games, hero, job, drugs, and threats. One of REACH’s goals is to affirm that children have the right to say no to anyone if they feel unsafe or lured. It’s not enough that children hear that message only from REACH. Children need many of the adults in their lives to re-affirm that

district, residents of Casco, Hollis, Standish and Windham are eligible to apply for PACE loans. The process is relatively simple. To make sure you are getting the most “bang for the buck,” you must first have an energy audit from a qualified energy advisor. They will go through your house and make recommendations for the most cost-effective improvements. The savings have to add up to 25% of your energy bill. Once you decide what you would like to do, call Efficiency Maine at 1-866-376-2463 to pre-qualify for the loan. If you pre-qualify, then just go ahead and get the work done and verified. Depending on the work you have done, you can take up to 25 years to repay, and you will be saving money on your heating bill the whole time. Although 25% is the minimum energy savings, homeowners who have gone through this process have reported savings of more than double that percentage. With a PACE loan you can save money, improve the comfort of your home, increase its value, and add jobs to the local economy. Very seldom have I seen government programs with such tangible, long-lasting benefits. For more information about PACE loans, call Efficiency Maine at 1-866-376-2463 or visit their website at www.efficiencymaine. com/pace/ If you have any thoughts on saving energy, or if there is anything else I can do for you, please let me know. You can call my office at the State House at 287-1515 or visit my website, www. to send me an e-mail.

New leadership at the Maine Turnpike Authority (MTA) is making steady progress in restoring taxpayer confidence in that important institution. After stealing from Maine taxpayers for decades, the former longtime executive director is serving a 3.5-year jail sentence. Increased usage of E-ZPass technology is reducing labor costs. Recycled asphalt, steel and other materials are saving millions of construction dollars. Even with that progress, Turnpike users may soon be required to pay an overall 21% increase in tolls. Current toll collections are able to pay the annual operating expenses, but not also the interest and principal (“debt service”) owed on a $452 million pile of debt. Adding to the problem, Turnpike traffic is projected to grow by 1.25% per year instead of the previously expected 3%, further limiting toll revenues. The MTA was created in 1947 as a quasi-independent state Authority. It operates outside of Maine state government although each of the seven board members is appointed by the governor for a seven-year term. The Turnpike annually collects $101 million of tolls and employs 400 workers to maintain 109 miles of highway, ramps, and bridges from Kittery to Augusta. The Maine Turnpike is our major transportation artery to move people and goods to, from, and within the state. In many ways, it’s our economic bloodline.

40% of businesses are trying to grow. Our economy is slow to United States Congressman recover due to the fact that these companies can’t find the right people for the job. For the past few weeks, I’ve hosted workshops in Brunswick, Springvale and Presque Isle with our leaders in the business community. I have been listening and what they are telling me is that they have jobs, but need skilled workers. This is not only a problem here in Maine, but nationally too. The demand for the right skills sought by employers is high while the supply of those workers is low. It’s simply a case of supply/demand, which isn’t in sync right now and as a result our economy is struggling. The road to recovering our economy will require change in attitude and policies.

(Continued from Page D) more than 250 responses have been submitted. This week, I glanced at some of the results. Three of the top challenges for companies include health care costs, managing energy costs and access to trained workers. My administration has challenged the status quo from day one saying that we must reset Maine’s educational system and reduce energy costs in order for us to be competitive and prosperous. I look forward to receiving more input from our job creators and introducing legislation that will improve education and lower energy prices. We must have the political will to do what is right for all Mainers.

Just this week, we learned that the United States is failing to close the gap in education achievement. A Harvard study shows that the United States now ranks 25th out of 49 countries. This data confirms that we are losing ground to the leaders of the industrialized world, which will ultimately kill our economy. The same report indicates that Maine is next to last in student achievement compared to 40 other states. This further reiterates why my administration is standing up against the status quo of union bosses, superintendents and principals’ association. The status quo is not putting our students or our teachers first and only a commitment to change will

(Continued from Page D) it’s critical we get this right. For a number of reasons, I approach these negotiations with some concern, given how poorly our negotiators have done in the past to craft deals that do not damage our economy and ship jobs overseas. But unlike previous agreements, we have a real shot at making sure a critical Maine industry is not threatened. And, I’m going to take every opportunity I can to press our case. On July 18, wearing a pair of New Balance sneakers made in Norridgewock, Maine, I participated in a news conference on Capitol Hill with Maine New Balance workers and a bipartisan group of members of Congress. We rallied together to urge the Obama Administration to fight to preserve current footwear tariffs as the negotiations over TPP continue. And, there’s a reason we need to stiffen the backbones of our negotiators on this issue. Under free trade agreements, tariffs are generally phased out. If that happens, Vietnam’s currency manipulation, state-owned enterprises, and low labor and environmental standards will give its footwear factories a significant and unfair advantage over American producers like New Balance. This would present a significant threat to Maine

jobs in Norway, Norridgewock and Skowhegan. It’s important to know that we are not asking for a special carve out in preserving these tariffs. In fact, just the opposite is true. All our workers and companies in the United States want is a level playing field to compete on. In fact, even with these tariffs, Vietnam’s footwear sector has managed to grow to the second largest exporter of shoes to the United States, second behind only China. Current footwear tariffs level the playing field and they’re essential to keeping the doors to New Balance’s factories open. They make it possible for 4,000 American workers in the footwear sector, including nearly 900 in Maine, to keep their jobs. In addition, they raised $19 billion in revenues over 10 years — not an insignificant amount, even for Washington, especially at a time we are trying to lower our debt burden. Whether it’s concerns over our debt, jobs, or our economic recovery, eliminating these tariffs would be a terrible mistake on many levels. I’m glad to know that this is not an average political fight we’re engaged in. Saving American footwear jobs has bipartisan backing that I hope the administration listens to. I was

joined at the news conference by Republican and Democratic members of Congress from both the House and Senate to speak up for our jobs as New Balance workers and executives stood behind us. Those in charge of negotiating these deals need to see the impact these footwear jobs have on our communities. That’s why after the news conference I joined New Balance at a meeting I arranged for them with United States Trade Representative (USTR) Ron Kirk, who is a cabinet-level officer and has the responsibility to negotiate trade deals on behalf of the White House. We had a productive meeting, and I’m pleased to report that Ambassador Kirk accepted my invitation to tour a Maine New Balance facility in the coming months. It will be extremely valuable for him to see firsthand how important these jobs are to not only our workers but also to our state. I really appreciate him taking the time to come up to Maine. We must make sure this new trade agreement doesn’t disadvantage our domestic manufacturers and threaten the thousands of jobs they support. At a time when we are searching for ways to bring production back to the United States, this should be a no-brainer.

paid $2.5 billion in wages last year. These aren’t the mill jobs of the past. Instead, these are positions being driven by new technology. These companies are seeking people with science, technology, engineering and mathematics, better known as STEM, skills. They want innovators and critical thinkers to provide solutions for their companies. And the average pay is around $50,000. The industries’ image can be revitalized through educating the public and our students about what these jobs are all about. There’s an array of opportunity out there from designing of drumsticks and Ipod cases to pellet production and the making of medical devices. Manufacturing isn’t dead; it just needs a makeover. We can talk about jobs until we’re blue in the face, but what we need from our elected leaders is reform that will set us in a new direction. Lowering health care and energy costs are necessary. We must demand more out of our education system. These are priorities that will lead to a prosperous Maine and my administration has the plan to make good on these promises.

improve results. It is critical Maine offers more opportunities in the form of school choice and teacher development and training. For far too long there has been a significant push for students to attend a four-year college. While post-secondary education does lead to higher wages, we are missing the mark when it comes to promoting the jobs of the 21st century. Maine is consistently lower than the national average in unemployment, but we can get more Mainers working if we better understand where the openings are. I recently spent a day with leaders from the manufacturing sector and it’s clear: the jobs are available. This industry is central to the identity of our state and rebuilding our economy. The Department of Economic and Community Development is working on a campaign to promote manufacturing jobs. Manufacturing isn’t a dirty word and it’s our goal to clean up its image because good-paying jobs are on the line. We have about 51,000 manufacturing jobs in Maine that

Betty C. Peek

Richard A. Dolloff

Jean S. Peterson

ORIENTAL, N.C. — Betty C. Peek, 88, of Oriental, N.C., died July 17, 2012 at Carolina East Medical Center. She was born in Bridgton in 1923, the daughter of David and Mildred Cockburn. Betty graduated from Bridgton High School and Maine General Hospital School of Nursing. She married Cdr. Allen Peek and during their 60 years together, she traveled with him on various assignments with the U.S. Navy. She lived in Annadale, Va. for 39 years and moved to Greenspring Village in 2001. Betty was employed at The Hermitage Nursing Center in Alexandria, Va. for 13 years and the Kings Park Library for 16 years, where she was a member of the Friends of Kings Park Library Board. She was also a member of Little River United Church of Christ in Allandale, Va. and volunteered at INOVA Fairfax Hospital. Betty is survived by three daughters, Cynthia Montes of Yardley, Pa. Wendy Davis of Oriental, N.C. and Betsy Clark of San Diego, Calif.; six grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren; and one brother, Gary Cockburn of New Hampshire. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to: Little River Church of Christ Endowment Fund c/o Special Gifts, 5410 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA 22003 or to INOVA Health System Foundation Nursing Scholarship Fund, 8110 Gatehouse Road, Suite 200E, Falls Church, VA 22042.

GORHAM — Richard (Dick) A. Dolloff, 67, of Gorham, died on July 21, 2012 surrounded by his family. Born on March 17, 1945 in Gray, Dick was the son of the late Maynard C. and Phyllis F. Dolloff. The family moved to Augusta in 1954 when his father was elected Master of the Maine State Grange. It was there that Dick attended grades 4-11. Following his father’s gubernatorial campaign in 1962, they moved to Wells, where Dick graduated from high school. Upon graduating, Dick went to work for Weyerhaeuser, where he was a corrugated box designer. He then moved on to Dennison Manufacturing (now Avery-Dennison), where he became one of their top salesmen. From there, he transitioned into selling foreign cars, before going into business for himself and opening Dick’s VW Repair on Forest Avenue in Portland. In 1984, he married Cathy A. Walker. Shortly after that, he sold his repair shop, bought a motor home, and spent the next few years traveling the country with his wife. The couple returned to Maine and settled in the Greater Portland area, at which point Dick obtained his commercial driver’s license and teaching certificate, and became a truck driver and educator. Dick drove commercial trucks for Hood and Kris-Way, and taught at Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) before landing his dream job at Westbrook Regional Vocational Center. It was there that he spent 16 years teaching commercial truck driving classes before finally retiring in 2010. Dick recalled fondly the great group of kids he taught throughout the years and was very proud of the accomplishments of many of his students. A lover of life, Dick lived each day to the fullest. He was passionate about racing and in his early 20s raced at the Sanford Drags. In the last 10 years, he got back into it and had a street rod that he and his son, Terry, worked on tirelessly. He spent the last six years racing in Winterport with the Gassah Guys. Dick was also a Harley motorcycle enthusiast and was one of the founding members of the Mountain Men Motorcycle Club (MMC), as well as the United Bikers of Maine (UBM). Additionally, he was a member of the Forest City Rod & Gun Club, Harley Owners Group and the American Legion. Dick’s happy-go-lucky personality drew people to him from every walk of life. In his eyes, there were no strangers, only friends he hadn’t yet met. An avid storyteller, he could easily entertain people for hours at a time with tales reaching back to his childhood. He was a man who loved life and everything in it. After receiving his cancer diagnosis, he changed his e-mail sign-off from “have an interesting day” to “live every day,” which he truly did. Dick is survived by his wife, Cathy; two sons, Tod R. Dolloff of Naples and Terry R. Dolloff of Gorham; daughter, Tina L. Dolloff of Jay; six grandchildren; sister, Kathryn Brown of Herndon, Va.; brother Ronald Dolloff of Waldoboro; many beloved nieces and nephews; extended family and countless friends. A celebration of life service will be held at the Italian Heritage Center, 40 Westland Avenue, Portland, on Sunday, July 29, 2012, from 1 to 5 p.m. To offer words of condolence to the family, sign a guest book and share memories, go to the obituary page at In lieu of flowers, donations in Dick’s honor may be made to the Good Shepherd Food Bank (

RAYMOND — Jean S. Peterson, 86, of Raymond passed away peacefully on Tuesday July 17, 2012 surrounded by her family. Jean was born in Everett, Mass. on Nov. 28, 1925, the daughter of Claude and Rena Sargent. She attended local schools and graduated in 1943. She would often summer in Lubec, where she met her first husband, Roy Spear. They had four children together and made their home in Portland, where she was a homemaker. In 1973, she began her career with the W.H. Nichols Co. as a receptionist and retired as a buyer in 1992. In 1976, she met her second husband, Pete Peterson. It was a true love story from the very beginning. They were married on her birthday in 1981. That same year, they purchased a lot on Sebago Lake, where they built their dream home the following year. She was very proud of her home and family, which included her four stepchildren and their spouses. Each and every holiday was always celebrated at the lake, where she would always make you feel welcomed and special. One was always greeted with a big smile and hug. She received great joy from her seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She had a very big heart and was extremely supportive of her family. Jean is predeceased by her husband Pete; sons Jim and John Spear; stepson Billy Peterson; brother Walter; and sister Thelma Molinari. She is survived by her daughter Lynne Myhaver of Raymond; son Bob Spear of Gray; stepchildren Mark and Lori Perry of Falmouth, Stanley and Julie Greenburg of Falmouth and Jim Peterson of Scarborough; sister, Lorraine Dunn of Chelmsford, Mass.; and seven grandchildren.

It was magical. In time, my temperature rose and it felt good to experience the blood coursing through the system, renewing me with each strong push of the pedal. On some bike rides, I am trying to get from A to B, to what is next and it goes on and on from there, missing the moment at hand. On this mindful ride, awareness prevailed. It was renewing. I was struck by the beauty found here, in this time and place.

It is said beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I would agree. It’s all from my perception — how I see and project upon the world around me. It came particularly easy this summer morning. Work remains in seeing the beauty in all of it, regardless of where I am. I spent the winter in a vast cityscape. Much of what I experienced was fabricated by our species, be it a park, a residential block or a roadway system. Making peace with our creation was a practice. And still, it was also good to remember I am a part of this creation and benefit from it. Transportation, housing, food production, waste disposal services — no doubt, I add to that need and my life was and is easier because of it. Everywhere I went, the natural world still found its way through the cracks. It’s as if there is a sustaining force greater than the minds that builds civilizations.

Speaking in images (Continued from Page D)

beauty, there’s feeling associated with each. They begin with feeling, at least, but they don’t always render it. When my pictures fail to catch and arrest even a small portion of the beauty I perceive, I feel a loss. But when they do, it’s wonderful. My favorite poet, Robert Frost, wrote, “A poem begins as a lump in the throat…” and I get that. Frost went on with: “…a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.” My pictures might contain some lovesickness — an immersion into feeling — but with more emphasis on love and less on sickness. I write about woe, but avoid photographing it. Frost went still further, saying, “…It is a reaching-out toward

expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion finds the thought and the thought finds the words.” Beauty, when I encounter it, is transitory. Either it diminishes as light wanes, or I must leave its proximity and see it no more. I can preserve it — though always in attenuated form — with my camera. I carry some of it away. Strawberry preserves don’t taste as good as strawberries, but good nonetheless. Serenity enables notice of beauty, and my camera enables me to preserve some. It’s all “an effort to find fulfillment,” as Frost described poetic inspiration. The picture is a medium captured with a camera created by

On June 17, 2012, Bruce Walker Haggerty, 63, died unexpectedly of a cardiac arrest at the St. Regis Retirement Center, Hayward, California. He was born Sept. 29, 1948, the son of Jasper and Muriel (Swicker) Haggerty of Harrison, Maine. Bruce grew up on the family farm with brothers Charlie and Albert Haggerty. He graduated from Bridgton High School in 1966, completed his college education at the University of Maine, majoring in Zoology in 1970. Serving in the Air Force, stationed first in Thailand and then in Kansas, Bruce met and married the love of his life, Lethe Rice. After his discharge from the Air Force they moved to Alviso, Calif., and Bruce served with the Californa National Guard until 1978. Sadly, Lethe passed away in 1987. Bruce continued his education, becoming a Medical Technician, and worked as a phlebotomist at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Palo Alto, Calif., until he retired in 2008 due to health issues. Bruce became a resident of St. Regis in 2009. He received wonderful care from the staff and became a special part of families of other residents. A Memorial Service was held at St. Regis for the staff, residents and their family members on June 23, 2012. Bruce was a faithful summer visitor to Maine, enjoying the family camp with his mother, Muriel. Fishing, eating fresh corn, and red hot dogs were his favorite ways to vacation while at camp. Survivors include two brothers, Charles and wife Judith Haggerty of Norman, Okla., and Albert and wife Patricia Haggerty of Otisfield, Maine; nephews Cyrus and Travis Haggerty; and step-nephews George and Erick Galarneau. Besides his wife, Lethe, he was predeceased by his father, Jasper, in 1972 and his mother, Muriel, in 2008. A graveside service will be held on August 12, 2012 at 2 p.m. at the Stuart Corner Cemetery, Harrison, Maine. Albert and Pat welcome people attending the service to come to their home afterwards at 322 Bell Hill Road, Otisfield, Maine. 1T30X

Theresa Hunt CASCO — Theresa Hunt, 84, of Casco passed away peacefully, July 22, 2012 at the Maine Veterans’ Home in So. Paris, surrounded by her loving family. She was born Sept. 23, 1927, daughter of Hazel J. Lewis and Wesley Lombard. Theresa will be fondly remembered for staying at home, raising her ten children, and being a devoted wife to her loving husband of 66 years, Clarence R. Hunt.

Robert “Red” York BROWNFIELD — Robert “Red” York passed away on July 21, 2012 after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was born the fourth of seven sons to Robert E. and Minnie Ballard York on March 26, 1926 in Chatham, N.H. As a result of a family tragedy, he and a brother, Harold, were raised in Brownfield by Ralph and Evelyn Eaton. At 17, Red left Bean Memorial High School to join the U.S. Navy, where he served as an Aviation Radioman until July 1946. In 1947 Red married Marion Lowe of Brownfield. They moved to Portland, where he attended barber school. Upon returning to Brownfield, he worked in auto sales and service at Lowe’s Garage and later at Sinclair’s and C.N. Brown’s in Fryeburg. It was during that time that he joined the Masons, and served the Town of Brownfield as a Selectman for five terms. In later years he would serve two terms on the Budget Committee. Through most of the 1960s Red applied his earlier training as a barber in Portland and Fryeburg. Next, he and Marion owned and operated Marion and Red’s General Store in Brownfield. They also had an antique shop in an annex. He was also a substitute mail carrier at that time and for ten additional years after the store was sold. Eventually Red became a full-time carrier out of the Cornish Post Office until his retirement in 1988. His pastimes included fishing and hunting. Red was always anxious for the November hunt to begin. He also enjoyed team sports; baseball being his favorite. He had the opportunity to play on base teams while in the Navy and town teams in the Saco Valley League where he was an all-star pitcher. As he got older, Red’s involvement in sports was as a spectator of events that his sons and grandchildren were involved with. He even assisted in coaching a Little League team in Brownfield. Red was predeceased by his parents, the Eaton’s; his wife of 63 years; brothers Merton, Leslie, Don, and Harold; and his son Charles “Chuck.” Red is survived by his son Brad of Brownfield; brothers Morris and wife Marion of Conn., and Fred and wife Barbara of Cornish; his granddaughters Kristin York of Intervale, N.H., and Susan Knolla and husband Michael of Macedon, N.Y., as well as grandsons Nathan and wife Jenny of Lovell, Garrett and wife Kelsey of Portland, and Kyle and companion Brittany Morris of Brownfield. Red and Marion were also very proud to be great-grandparents to Arianna Knolla of N.Y. and Jack York of Lovell. A funeral will be held Sunday, July 29th at 3 P.M. at the Brownfield Community Church. Rev. Jim Parr will officiate. Burial will be at Pine Grove Cemetery, Brownfield. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, Northern New England Chapter, 1 Bowdoin Mill Island, Suite 300, Topsham, ME 04086, or to the charity of one’s choice. Arrangements are under the direction of Wood Funeral Home, 9 Warren Street, Fryeburg. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at

Fixing the Maine Turnpike Authority pickle payments. Toll increases in 1999, 2005, and 2009 were not enough to pay for the Pike’s current operating expenses and for the spiking debt service payments on the $452 million of debt. Hence, Turnpike travelers may soon be saddled with another 21% toll increase to make ends meet. Maine and our nation must continuously maintain and improve our vital infrastructure. Our roads, bridges, seaports, rails, airports, and the like are critically necessary to support a healthy private sector economy and the jobs it creates. Those jobs lead to more prosperity for our citizens, and generate the tax revenues needed to fund public education, assistance for the most vulnerable among us, and so on. However, as seen at the Maine Turnpike, paying for this infrastructure

man, but operated by a photographer created by God. Properly executed, the picture captures created beauty, which is then triggered in viewers who are also created. Without the divine, there would be neither beauty nor perception of it. With it, our perception and attempts to capture it bring the fulfillment both Frost and the photographer seek. If we plug into the process, what we capture will resonate in the reader or the viewer, as we are all components in the network of Creator. Some painters capture beauty too. They plugged into the network, consciously or not, and their work reflects it. I see it in Van Gogh’s work, but not in Picasso’s. Much of his work is repulsive to me and I wondered why, so I researched him. A few quotes were enough to understand: “God is really another artist… He has no real style,” he said. “I am a communist and my painting is a communist painting,” he said. But this confession of his sealed it: “The ‘refined,’ the ‘rich,’ the ‘professional do nothing,’ the ‘distiller of quintessence’ desire only the peculiar, and sensational, the eccentric, the scandalous in today’s art. And I myself, since the advent of cubism, have fed these fellows what they wanted and satisfied these critics with all the ridiculous ideas that have passed through my head. The less they understood, the more they have admired me! …Today, as you know, I am celebrated, I am rich. But when I am alone, I do not have the effrontery to consider myself an artist at all, not in the grand meaning of the word. …I am only a public clown, a mountebank. I have understood my time and exploited the imbecility, the vanity, the greed of my contemporaries.” No wonder I was repulsed. His were hardly efforts to find fulfillment. I’ll continue to trust my instincts with poets and painters and other image-makers. Tom McLaughlin of Lovell is a retired U.S. History teacher.

become dangerously overheated. We humans wear clothing to help us tolerate winter’s cold and summer’s heat, but birds depend on layers of different kinds of feathers, which provide very effective insulation. In winter, they fluff their feathers to create warm air spaces next to the skin, and in summer they do the opposite, compressing feathers to eliminate hot air spaces. Like humans, birds may become less active and seek shade during the hottest part of the day, but if a bird is nesting in a place exposed to the sun, it must use its heavy outer contour feathers to shade the skin. When those outer feathers absorb radiant heat from the sun, the bird may lift them slightly to release the hot air and to keep it away from the body. Birds can also vary the number of feathers they wear, according to the season. Goldfinches may have a thousand more feathers in winter than in summer. They molt their heavy winter plumage between March and early May, and after the breeding season they molt again, producing a greater number of feathers for winter. Instead of sweat glands, which would be quite useless under all those feathers, birds have comparatively small lungs, supplemented by a system of balloon like extensions called internal air sacs, which are located throughout the body. When they overheat, they vaporize warm moist air in their air sacs and lungs, and then expel it through breathing or panting. That is why on very hot days we sometimes see birds in our yard sitting with their mouths open, ridding their bodies of excess heat. There are various ways we humans can cool down on a hot day, but my favorite is to go for a dip in the lake. Later this afternoon, when the sun has begun to lose some of its strength, I believe I will do just that.


(Continued from Page D) slow our physical activity in hot weather, wear lightweight clothing, drink plenty of water and stay out of the hot sun. From another part of the yard, I hear the cheery, jumbled song of our resident catbird, and wonder how he manages to avoid overheating in this weather. A bird’s body temperature can fluctuate as much as eight to ten degrees during the day, and according to George J. Wallace and Harold D. Mahan, authors of An Introduction to Ornithology, the body temperature of some bird species can even go as high as one hundred twelve degrees Fahrenheit. Typically, a bird’s body temperature is highest around the warmest part of the day and drops lower at night or during periods of inactivity, but on a hot day a bird, like a human, can

is no easy task. The former MTA leadership did not always honestly and wisely spend/invest toll revenues. Keeping expenses low and setting aside money each year could have built financial reserves to help fund future capital improvements. Better financial management might have avoided borrowing heavily, and now asking Turnpike users to wrestle with ballooning debt service payments. Governments in Europe, Washington and Augusta have demonstrated how dangerously high levels of public debt hurt us all. In Greece, civil unrest is pushing back against a government desperately trying to unwind behemoth cradle-to-grave entitlements that it can no longer afford. In the United States, Washington career politicians have spent more than collected from us in tax revenues for many years. They have recklessly grown a frightening $16 trillion mountain of debt that is causing businesses to hesitate to invest, expand, and hire more workers. In Maine, we’re facing a possible 21% increase in MTA tolls to help pay off a surge in borrowing during the past two decades. The leadership team in Maine state government understands the danger of too much spending, taxing, borrowing and debt. Last year, we eliminated $1.7 billion of public pension debt, which cut future government spending by approximately $200 million per year. The largest tax cut in Maine history followed. This year, the administration has been working with the Legislature to right-size our unaffordable Medicaid program which is crowding out funding for other vital services and increasing the debt owed to hospitals. Whenever possible, we’re paying our bills with current tax revenues instead of borrowing. We’re living within our means and spending only what we take in. This fiscal discipline will bear fruit. A smaller, less expensive, and less intrusive government will help attract business investment and more private sector jobs. The resulting increase in tax revenues will allow us to better care for our most vulnerable families, and to pave our roads and repair our bridges. This is the more responsible and compassionate path to greater prosperity and opportunity for all Mainers. Let’s continue down this road. Mr. Poliquin’s comments are as State Treasurer, not as a Trustee of the Maine Public Employees Retirement System.

nal debt borrowed to construct the roadway. Beginning in the mid1990s, the aging bridges south of Portland were replaced, and the 37 miles between York and South Portland were widened to three lanes in each direction. Bonds were sold to investors to borrow the funds needed for those and other projects. Today, the MTA is burdened with $452 million of debt, the last of which is due to be paid off in 2042. From 2010-18, the debt service payments will accelerate from $26 to $40 million per year. Much of the borrowing was structured such that mostly interest was paid during the early years of the loans, presumably to keep the tolls down at the time. Now, the borrowed principal must be repaid to the bondholders in addition to the annual interest
