Water woes

Town grapples with lakefront issues

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer When you live in a town blessed by three lakes, all eyes are on the water, and every inch of shoreline is scrutinized. Therefore, at their last meeting, Bridgton Selectmen stayed close to the letter of the law in dealing with three separate shorefront issues — swim lines, illegal campground structures and dredging. Swim lines Code Enforcement Officer

Robbie Baker sent out a letter this spring to the Lakeside Condominium Association on Moose Pond, telling them they could no longer rope off a private swim area for their 60 townhouses because the state does not allow it. The association’s president, Byron Gayman, told the board that a state official advised him the town could, if they so desired, make an exception; but the board wasn’t inclined to agree. The swimming area for condo owners extends around

65 feet from the shore to the right of the swim dock, and in the past had always been roped with a swim line that enclosed a free-standing swim platform. “I don’t think the state statute gives us the authority to do that,” said Chairman Doug Taft. Selectman Bernie King agreed, saying, “The state statute is quite clear.” Under rules titled Regulation of Swim Areas on Inland Waters, the only shorefront owners allowed to have permits for swim lines are

“a camping area, recreational camp or governmental entity or governmentally-sponsored group.” Gayman said George Powell of the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry told him that he’d provide an exception if Selectmen wrote a letter in support of Lakeside’s request. “This has caused a great deal of concern among Lakeside owners, since most of our owners have young LAKEFRONT, Page A

By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — The Naples recreation director has been called a “Nazi” and the “Gestapo.” He has heard phrases like “I pay taxes in this town,” and “I don’t have to listen to you.” No, those are not words fly into the air during a baseball game or while he is refereeing a youth football game. They are some of the words he has heard while stepping into the role of enforcing the rules at the Naples Town Beach. According to Naples Recreation Director Harvey Price, one of his duties this summer includes trying to make sure people are following the posted rules. The beach “is a family environment. I don’t take my kids down there to hear some-

one swear and smoke,” Price said. “People are drinking (alcohol) and smoking and jumping off the dock,” Price said. “Smoking has been a huge issue. Vandalism — three of the five bathroom toilets have been broken. The lights have been broken,” he said. Last summer, caretakers resided at the beach and were not only responsible for some janitorial duties, but also with reminding people of the posted rules. This summer, those people bowed out of the unpaid job after someone purchased their camper. Price said he has spent 10 to 15 hours a week enforcing the rules and responding to complaints. “It’s anytime. I’ve kicked people out at 11 at night. I’ve kicked someone out at 9 a.m. for drinking,” Price said.

He came to work one morning and from that previous night, there were half-dozen complaints about activities on the town beach. “It fell on me being the person who is in charge of the facility. If not, it would be free-for-all,” he said. Often, Price tells people that he does not make the rules, and that the rules are posted. Consuming alcohol in a public place that is not licensed for drinking is against state law. A town ordinance prohibits smoking on the premises. There are also some parking rules. Six parking spaces are set aside for trucks with boat trailers. “There are six boat spots: That is really the only place that people can park their boat trailers. If I park my truck in one of those spots, now there

is no place for them to park,” he said. It creates a bottleneck for the people trying to use the public boat launch, he said. Also, in the ordinance: the beach is only for use by Naples residents and their families, and guests accompanying them. “In order to be a legal guest, it is really tricky to prove. They need to be with the resident or taxpayer,” he said. To prove someone is a resident of Naples, they must display in the vehicle windshield a sticker for the Casco-Naples Transfer Site, he explained. During a 10-day period that occurred from mid to late July, there were 24 vehicles without a dump sticker. There were five or six nonresidents who were asked to leave. A BEACH, Page A

Garden project to lease town land By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer Already, there’s demand on Bridgton’s surplus lands — and it’s a beauty. A bountiful garden full of beauty, that is. The Frederika and Wardner Gilroy Charitable Foundation has received permission from Bridgton Selectmen to embark on a major expansion of their Community Gardens Project, by leasing a small vacant parcel of town-owned land to grow and distribute organic produce. The land is located on Park Street, between the parking lot of the U.S. Post Office and a paved parking area owned by the adjacent Nulty Street redemption business. The request came the same night that selectmen agreed to seek proposals from Realtors to become the exclusive listing

agent representing the town for the sale of up to a dozen taxacquired properties that were foreclosed on in February. The Park Street land is part of the town’s list of surplus lands, for which selectmen are currently considering a formal policy outlining how those lands should be disposed of. Selectmen agreed the potential benefits to the community from the garden project warranted taking it off the list of marketable properties and issuing a two-year renewable lease on the land to the Gilroy Trust instead. Glen Niemy, Gilroy Trustee, said the trust wants to expand its current program of raisedbed gardening at the Bridgton Community Center by using local high school students to grow the food for distribution to the local food pantry.

“We will give them the training, skills and tools they will need to effectively run the operation,” he wrote in a July 10 letter to the board. Eventually, the trust wants to encourage residents to become actively involved as well. “The goal is not just to distribute food, but to teach local residents the multiple benefits of eating healthy food. We hope to be able to encourage people to feed themselves and develop healthy habits that will serve them and their children a lifetime,” Niemy’s letter states. At the meeting, he also noted the garden project will “make that part of town a little nicer looking.” Trustees Avery Dandreta and Jamel Torres will spearhead the project, and use an electric pump to pump water from the adjacent Corn

Shop Brook for watering the plants. That last part sparked some concerns about noise among board members. “That’s a quiet neighborhood over there,” said Chairman Doug Taft. Niemy assured the board “you won’t even hear” the electric pump in operation, and there’s plenty of flow from the brook to accommodate their needs. The garden planting will begin next year. In agreeing to try to sell tax-acquired properties using a real estate broker, Selectmen were acting on the recommendation of the Community Development Committee, whose members reasoned that such active marketing might well bring a higher selling price to the town than the traLAND, Page A

NEW REC DIRECTOR — Bridgton’s new Recreation Director, Gary Colello, of Laconia, N.H., introduced himself to the Bridgton Board of Selectmen July 23, later shaking their hands. Colello, who has a master’s of education degree and a strong sports fitness background in schools, will begin his duties in early August.

Growing independence through community garden By Dawn De Busk Staff Writer NAPLES — Kari Reed and her husband Chaz have four daughters ranging in age from nine- to three-years old. Recently, the couple took on the care of three other children from relatives. So, when it comes to mealtime, there are a lot of people at the kitchen table. This summer, the Reed family started a variety of edible plants in the Naples Community Garden. The garden is located behind the Naples Town Office; and last year, the harvest supplemented the food pantry organized by Crosswalks Community Outreach. The outreach GARDEN TALK — Resident Master Gardener Patrice Griffin discusses moths program aids people in five and blight with Bridgton resident Kari Reed at the Naples Community Garden on towns including Bridgton, Tuesday. (De Busk Photo) Harrison, Naples, Casco and

Sebago. This year, Crosswalks organizers selected some pantry participants and provided those 14 families with spaces in the garden plus the assistance of an on-site master gardener. On Tuesday — while her two oldest daughters were swimming, Kari spent a few hours weeding and treating some leaves for powdery mildew. Another couple weeded and raked the pathways

between the raised garden beds, while volunteers got rid of the perennial grasses trying to trespass the garden fence. Later in the day, Kari went home with sugar snap peas, cucumbers, green beans, parsley, basil, a recipe for vegetable lasagna, and a satisfied smile. Typically, her daughters Hannah, 9, and Michaela, 7, spend at least once or sometimes twice a week taking GROWING, Page A

Large group gathers for forum

McHatton, Ken Murphy and Paul Hoyt, along with Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz and CPC members. A fair amount of summer

visitors were in attendance, which is what CPC members were hoping for. Because of that, the early part of the meeting was spent going over

basic information. “I want to see Bridgton grow, but I want to see it grow right,” said Murphy. CPC Vice-President Greg Watkins, who led the discussion, explained that the committee was trying to balance the needs of growth of the local economy with the need to preserve the small-town character that both yearround and summer residents so prize. A 14-year employee of True Value Hardware said her employers understand that balance. “We’ve grown, but we’re the same people. We’re your neighbors. We’re your friends,” she said. Wastewater Committee Chairman Ray Turner said anyone who wants to understand the Bridgton community should attend its selectmen meetings, with its give-andtake style between residents FORUM, Page A

to utilize kitchen leftovers, coffee grounds, and grass clippings from the lawn for making compost, Vose said. “As long as you have a good balance of green and brown debris,” in the compost pile, she said. The people involved in the community garden “have always wanted to garden, and didn’t do it — for whatever reason. Now, they have learned how to have a garden,” Vose said. One family happily received a bag of manure and soil to start a second garden where they live. Kari said that she toyed around with a small garden last summer, but did not have enough space in her yard this year. “This is really awesome. It came at a good time. It has been super helpful,” she said, estimating she puts in about five or six hours a week at the garden. The Reed family has been offered a space in the community garden next summer. Kari said she hopes to “plan out her crops, and really pack it in.” According to Griffin, next year’s workshops will start sooner — in the late winter with classes on how to plan a garden plot and how to order seeds. It is much less expen-

sive to purchase seeds than to invest in trays of starters, she said. This summer as family members harvest the crops — the most frequent question is how to prepare the fresh ingredients. “You can put the zucchini in a blender, and then add it to store-bought spaghetti sauce. The kids will never know what hit them,” Griffin said. Another tip for tricking children into eating their vegetables is to blend summer squash, and add it to macaroni and cheese, she said. Both Vose and Griffin said the community part of the garden is a big plus. It allows gardeners to keep an eye on other people’s crops. It allows gardeners to share and swap their harvest. It allows people to exchange ideas. Griffin said that when she

volunteers at the food pantry kitchen, she listens to the conversations. Frequently, people are discussing where their next meal will come from. They are scheduling rides around the various food pantries in the region. She said some people drive as far as Scarborough to be in line at the food pantry on the days it is open. “I was calculating the cost of gas to drive that far. I was thinking how much cheaper it would be if more people had gardens to grow food for themselves,” she said. Vose agreed. “The idea is to train people how to garden. We like to help people become independent,” Vose said. “Our garden is a lot of fun. Each garden is a little different. All the gardeners are so helpful with one another,” she said.

(Continued from Page A) care of their garden plot. “They are ecstatic about the garden. They like to see how much stuff has grown. They are like mother hens. They panic when mold or bugs get into a crop,” Kari said. The fairy house and flowers in the plot stand testament to the creative aspect of gardening. Nutrition-wise: Many of the cucumbers the girls picked never made it home. Recently, the family saved the brine from a jar of pickles and sliced fresh cucumbers to cure in the pickle juice. About 24 hours later, the girls could not wait. They made sandwiches to accompany the homemade pickles, Kari said. “I’ve enjoyed having a garden so much. I like to see the changes every time I come here,” she said. “I am learning so much. It is nice to have people right there to answer questions,” she said. Twice a month, Resident Master Gardener Pat Griffin holds a workshop for the group. Toward the beginning of the growing season, Griffin taught everyone about composting. According to Crosswalks Board of Directors President Nancy Vose, “gardening is all about nutrients.” “The big national gardens don’t have the nutrients. No compost, no manure and all chemicals. So, it is really important to have nutrients in your personal garden,” she said. Participants learned how

HARRIS FELLOW — Bridgton Lake Region Rotary Club honored Edna Fadden (center), who is the recipient of the Paul Harris Fellow, at a recent award ceremony held at Campfire Grille. Pictured with Edna were Charter Rotarians Faye Daly (left) and Dick Enright. Edna was honored for her 22 years of membership and community service. As a charter member, Edna played a significant role in the creation of the Bridgton Lake Region Rotary Club and is a three-time recipient of Rotary’s prestigious “Paul Harris Fellow” award. Edna’s community contributions extend beyond the Rotary club and have included service with the Ham Foundation and the Bridgton Library board of directors. She also is a Past Matron of the Order of the Eastern Star. Born in Poland, Edna moved to Bridgton in 1959, where she worked as an office manager for Dielectric before joining the Chalmers group. She obtained her real estate license and will retire this September after 50 years as a realtor with Chalmers.

Harrison rate up HARRISON — Taxpayers will see a slight jump in their property bill after selectmen recently approved a mill rate increase for 2014. Town Manager Bud Finch reported selectmen set the mill rate for the 2014 fiscal year at $10.70, an increase of $.50 per thousand, which will raise the taxes on a $100,000 worth of valuation by $50. Finch said the hike was driven by increases in education ($170,122 or 4.8%) and County ($14,747 or 5%). The municipal operations budget was reduced $51,737 or 3.2%. HARRISON, Page A

By Gail Geraghty Staff Writer It’s a theme echoed over and over, as the Comprehensive Plan Committee holds community forums to fine-tune goals for Bridgton’s future — don’t let Bridgton become another Windham. At a Monday forum at the Campfire Grille, Bridgton newcomers Linda and John England, transplants from Arizona, explained it this way: “We chose Bridgton very carefully. We like neighbors who care who you are. People want heart, especially in this impersonal time,” said Linda England. “Tempe, Arizona used to be a quiet little town,” she said, but when it became overrun by development, the “heart” seemed to go out of the town.

5 years single sorting Come help the town of Bridgton celebrate the 5th Anniversary of “Single Sort” Recycling at the Bridgton Transfer Station on Saturday, Aug. 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be freebies for the kids and information for all. See the new recyclable containers with a greater capacity than prior models. For this special day, the town is offering the containers to residents at below their regular cost. Residents can buy them at just $5 each at this event, or buy them at the Bridgton Municipal Complex. Before “Single Sort,” residents used to bring their recyclables to the Transfer Station, only to find that there were over 10 separate containers in which to put the recyclable items. There were three for the different types of glass alone, plus newspaper had to be separated from other papers and cardboard, etc., etc., etc. It wasn’t unusual to get through the lined up containers, only to find you still had something in hand that should have gone into one of the first containers. With “Single Sort,” all the recyclables go into one container at the Transfer Station and all the trash into the other. Don’t panic if an occasional piece goes into the wrong container. Most of us do it from time to time. Remember that it costs about seven times as much to dispose of trash as it does recyclables, so please try to be diligent.

GUEST SPEAKER WELCOMED — Liz Congdon and Jillian Hinderliter, summer interns at the Rufus Porter Museum, joined Judy Graham, president of the board (second from left) to welcome Nicholas Picerno as he spoke on soldiers from the Lakes Region and their involvement in the Civil War 150 years ago. Mr. Picerno is chairman emeritus of the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Association in Virginia, a member of many other Civil War historical groups, and has been collecting artifacts of Maine Regiment troops for 30 years. His talk was part of the museum’s current exhibit on “Folk Art Inspired by the Civil War” and the Maine Civil War Trail involving 24 museums in Maine. The exhibit is open until Oct. 13 at the 67 North High Street location in Bridgton.

Anne Krieg, Bridgton’s Director of Planning, Economic and Community Development, kept track of ideas and comments using large white sheets, which were posted on the outside windows of the restaurant’s function room. Responding to comments about the need to market the town as a destination, Krieg said the town needs to decide whether it is willing to invest taxpayer money in such a goal, which would of necessity be a multi-year project. “Do we see this as a role of government” at all, she asked, or something that would be best accomplished by partnering with other organizations. Resident Bill Vincent suggested that, if marketing is to be a priority, it was unfortunate that voters cut $23,000 in funding from the Bridgton Economic Development Corporation. The BEDC subsequently voted to remove town-appointed members from its board, which leaves an uncertainty in how some of the Comprehensive Plan’s goals will be implemented. The CPC is using feedback from the forums to help members devise implementation strategies for the plan. Krieg said the all-important Chapter 12, goals and strategies section, is “a fluid document,” which will depend to a large extent on what residents have to say at the forums. Another forum will be held Monday, Aug. 5, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Tannery Pub at the Magic Lantern Theater; with a third scheduled for Aug. 19 at a yet-to-be-determined location.

Man dies after fall from cart CASCO — A Massachusetts man was charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence following a golf cart crash at Point Sebago Resort on Saturday, which resulted in a passenger suffering fatal injuries. At about 10:27 p.m., Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and Town of Casco EMS responded to 261 Point Sebago Road, inside Point Sebago Resort in Casco for a report of an individual that was thrown from a golf cart while in motion. Upon the arrival of Sheriff’s deputies and Casco EMS, it was determined that a passenger, John A. MacKay, 52 of Sanford, had been thrown from a moving golf cart that was being operated by Gary Belinsky, 59, of Westford, Mass. MacKay sustained serious life threatening head injuries and was immediately airlifted by Life-Flight to Maine Medical Center in Portland. MacKay died from the injuries on Monday, July 29. During the initial stages of the investigations, it was determined that the operator, Belinsky, was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol, and was placed under arrest for OUI. He was later transported to Cumberland County Jail by Sheriff’s Deputies. Bail has been set at $300 cash, with a court date to be determined later. The incident is still under investigation, and all information and updates will be forward to the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Office for review, which is a standard practice.

Trooper honored: State Police handed out a variety of honors at their annual awards ceremony held at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy recently. Special Awards of Commendation went to local Trooper Steven Green for saving a man who had suffered a stroke. Fatalities down: Highway deaths in Maine are down about 23% from last year as August approaches. The Bureau of Highway Safety says 70 people have lost their lives in traffic crashes this year, compared to 91 deaths at this time in 2012. The most recent fatal crashes took place in the Washington County Town of Roque Bluffs and in Harrison last week. At Roque Bluffs, two women drowned after their car drove into the ocean from a boat-launching ramp. In Harrison, a young man died when his car slammed into a tree. August is one of the busiest months on Maine roads and usually one of the most deadly. In the past five years, a total of 78 people have lost their lives in traffic crashes during August.

This Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2-3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the talented Art In Bloom floral designers and members of Lakeside Garden Club will create arrangements that interpret — in fresh flowers — almost a dozen selected pieces of fine art currently exhibited at Gallery 302 by Bridgton Art Guild artisans. The monthly First Friday reception on the show’s first day from 5 to 7 p.m. will allow those who work during the daytime or who have never been able to view the colorful flower display, to attend while the flowers are fresh. Artists will be pleased to meet the public and gallery supporters. A free wine and cheese party contributes to the event’s popularity on Main Street.

London. About his art, Tomas says, “Since I was a child, the only thing that was ever clear to me was my inclination toward art. My passion with painting was firmly established since the very beginning. I have always been inclined towards the arts, painting and drawing in particular, more than anything else. For me, painting is a way of understanding life itself, at least my way of trying to comprehend it. “For years, I have been fascinated by the representation of the human figure and the task to capture its soul on a piece of canvas. I think that portraying the essence of the sitter is what it is all about when you are confronting a portrait. All this gravitation towards capturing the human spirit has been translated to the same mission in nature. I believe, when painting a landscape, you are not only just representing a view but something beyond that, as well. In my case, in particular, my mission is the searching of nature’s powerful energy and revealing it in my landscapes.” Gallery 302 is located at 112 Main Street in Bridgton.

ELSA BROWN, a violinist from the Deutsche Symphonie in Berlin, Germany will perform at the Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival on Tuesday, Aug. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the Deertrees Theatre in Harrison. The chamber series at Deertrees runs for five Tuesday evenings through Aug. 13. ily life is interrupted when a jealous husband, influenced by the passion of Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” Sonata for violin and piano, is driven to murder his wife because he suspects that she is in love with the violinist with whom she is performing. Janáček’s Quartet tells the

story with music that alternates between idyllic and charming, and brooding, jittery and tense, and finally climbs to a turbulent finish. After the grisly tale has been told, the audience will have an opportunity to hear and feel the full passion of the movement of that Beethoven sonata which caused all the trouble. It will be passionately performed by violinist Elsa Brown from the Deutsche Symphonie in Berlin, and pianist Mihae Lee of the Boston Chamber Music Society. The final half of the concert is devoted to Dvořák’s monumental Piano Trio in F Minor, Op. 65. In this work Dvořák expresses his fierce nationalism by combining Czech folk-like themes with the more structured European style. The result is a powerful Romantic piece with tension, resolution, and haunting melody. This stellar concert will stir you to your depths. You are in for an exciting experience. Performing in the Janáček Quartet are Phil Palermo, associate concertmaster of the Indianapolis Symphony; Dovid Friedlander who is associate concertmaster of the North Carolina

Symphony and a and newcomer to the festival; Laurie Kennedy, principal violist of the Portland Symphony; and Bonnie Thron, principal Cellist of the North Carolina Symphony. Bonnie Thron joins Elsa Brown and Mihae Lee for the magnificent Dvořák trio. This program will also be presented on Sunday, Aug. 4 at 7:30 on Chebeague Island at the United Methodist Church. This is the 14th consecutive year that the Friends of Chebeague Music will be hosting a SLLMF concert. For more information, program notes, artists bios, and tickets, visit the new website: Tickets for the concerts at Deertrees are $25. Tickets for anyone 21 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the Deertrees Theatre box office (583-6747) or at local outlets — Bridgton Books, Country Sleigh in Naples and Books N Things in Norway.

(Continued from Page A) children and grandchildren who swim off our small beach area,” Gayman said in a July 17 letter to the board. Gayman said he believed Powell “may have read more into the law because it’s a big, big issue” that’s been growing since the law was enacted in June 2009, in response to conflicts that arose between boaters and shoreland owners on Sebago Lake. But Baker said he spoke to Powell, who told him “the only way to issue a permit is if it’s a town swim area. I have told the other people to take their swim lines in, and my recommendation is to not take any action.” Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz told selectmen they’d be setting a precedent if the town decided to go to bat on behalf of Lakeside. “Others would ask for the same,” he said. “You, as a selectboard, don’t have the authority, so to me it’s so black and white.” Illegal structures When members of the Community Development Committee prepared their in-depth report on ways to improve the profitability of the town-owned Salmon Point Campground on Long Lake, they had a suspicion the town might be at odds with state Shoreland Zoning laws by not enforcing the plethora of decks, patios and screen rooms that have sprung up on the 51 campsites over the years. Until a seasonal manager was hired in recent years, the campers created their own infrastructures and were under little or no supervision, the CDC report stated, and may have exposed the town to state violations and fines. Turns out, they were right. Baker told the board he met with Mike Morse and Jeff Kalinich of the Department of Environmental Protection July 10 for a site walk at the campground. Several of the lakefront and lagoon sites had the structures placed within the 100-foot setback line from the lake, which is not allowed. However, Baker said he was given assurances that he could grandfather those sites. He apparently was also able to convince state officials not to take any enforcement action against the town. The sites further back from the 100-foot setback also have accessory structures, but these sites are not in violation of the law. “No violation notices will be sent. However, as of this date these types of structures will no longer be allowed,” Baker stated in a July 23 memo to the board. If the campers with sites within the 100-foot setback give up their leases at the end of the season, they must remove the decks, patios or screen rooms, and new leaseholders will not be able to replace the structures. In answer to a question, Baker said the same rules of grandfathering would apply to any private shorefront owners with accessory structures within the 100-foot setback line. Lagoon dredging Selectmen agreed to take up, in their next budget review, the idea of setting aside funds for dredging the lagoon area at the Salmon Point Campground. The dredging, along with repair of the bridge, was included as a recommendation in the Salmon Point Report. But not all were convinced the expense is warranted. “I don’t think we should spend the money because it only affects a certain few,” said King. Selectman Paul Hoyt, who leases a campground site, said, however, that if the town continues to do nothing, “It’s not a question of if the lagoon will fill in, but when. We have to look at the long term.” Baker said the town’s last dredging permit was issued by the state in 1996. A similar permit for limited dredging was later issued in 2002. But in any case, the town has lost the ability to apply for a less expensive permit by rule, because such permits can only be issued if less than 10 years has elapsed since the prior dredging permit. “I sent an e-mail of our intentions (to dredge the lagoon) to the (DEP’s) Portland office, and they advised me we’ll need a Tier 2 Permit, a more stringent level of review,” Baker said. An engineering survey will be required, and the permitting process will require 120 days before approval, he said. “How many sites are in the lagoon?” asked Selectman Bob McHatton. Twenty sites was the answer, or about 45% of the total. “The lagoon used to be about five or six feet deep, but that’s now filled in,” Baker said. Rowboats and canoes can navigate across to shore, but boater with outboard motors must manually lift their props in order to avoid hitting bottom. “I’d like to see us get an estimate before we go either way with this,” said Hoyt. McHatton said such an estimate should include all costs, including permit fees, engineering and equipment. Baker and Berkowitz agreed to provide the information in time for the board’s first meeting in October.

Town surplus land

(Continued from Page A) ditional method of selling to the lowest bidder. “The CDC felt brokers have a wider market, and even though they’d be making a commission, you’d make more (from the sale) in the long run,” said Town Manager Mitch Berkowitz. An advertisement placed by the town seeks interested real estate agencies that belong to the Maine Association of Realtors to submit a proposal stating what commission they would charge, as well as their plans for marketing the properties. Selectmen agreed there was potential benefit in having the parcels included in the state’s Multiple Listing Service, seen by all licensed brokers. The successful broker would enter into a three-month contract with an option to extend the terms, and must inform the town of their interest by Aug. 7 at 10 a.m. Meanwhile, the board asked Berkowitz to compile a complete list of all other surplus lands, with a map showing their locations, in preparation for making decisions LEAVING A TRAIL OF BUBBLES along the Casco Days on how the sales should be Grand Parade route on Saturday.

Tough days at the Naples Beach (Continued from Page A) few of those people said they would park across the street and walk to the beach. A few years ago, at Naples Town Meeting, citizens decided to enforce the rule that stated only residents could use the town beach. “If you look at the old beach sign that has always been the rule. But, it is something new that we are really enforcing it. When the town purchased (Kent’s Landing) for $75,000 and built the facility, the people decided that,” he said. However, being a Naples’ taxpayer does not excuse people from following the rules, Price said. “I don’t enjoy telling people what the rules are, or kicking them off the beach,” he said. Another less obvious rule: Toddlers and babies must have a swim diaper on. Price said it was no fun to tell a father and his three children to leave because the toddler was wearing a dirty diaper; and the dad didn’t have a supply of diapers designed for swimming for his youngest child. That rule helps to protect

the water quality; and prevents the spread of E Coli which, if found in the water, could result in the closure of the popular swim spot, Price said. “Since then I have purchased a box of swim diapers so that I don’t have kick someone off the beach for that,” he said. “There was a young man that I threw out because he had jumped off the dock with his bike,” he said. One day, Price had a conversation with the boy and his friends about jumping off the public dock or riding their bikes off the dock. Price explained that repeating that activity would get them kicked out. “Fifteen minutes later, there he was riding the bicycle down the hill and off the dock,” he said. While the bicycle whizzed by, Price was talking with some parents. “They were flabbergasted with how rude he was,” he said. Adults are equally impolite. “One man asked me who I was to be harassing him. I said

voters gave the board the authority to decide on surplus land sales using any one of three methods — a sale by sealed bid, a live auction or real estate agent listing and sale. Decisions would be made depending on the land, its value, and its potential to be used by the town for infrastructure or building purposes. In some cases, a formal appraisal might be warranted. Selectman Paul Hoyt said all department heads should be shown the complete list so their perspectives could be taken into account. “The town should not be in the real estate business,” said Selectman Bob McHatton. “We should see anything we can sell, and get it back on the tax rolls.” Among the surplus lands are the following: land behind the West Bridgton Fire Station; a lot behind the vacant Saunder’s Mill; land behind Bridgton Hospital; parcels on Cedar Drive; property on Town Farm Road by Foster Pond; a parcel behind the Squeaky Clean Laundromat (currently leased to the business for a septic field); and what is described as a “spaghetti-string” lot off Wildwood Road.

I was the recreation director. He asked why I was yelling at him. I said that was because he was 150 feet away from me, jumping off the dock. Then, he said there are signs telling him what not to do, and he did not need me for that,” Price said. “A lot of people say, ‘I pay my taxes here so I can do anything I want to here,’ ” he said. “There are a lot of people who pay their taxes, and want to enjoy it as a fun, family beach. Who wants to feel

uncomfortable because of people breaking the rules?” Price said. Meanwhile, Naples Town Manager Derik Goodine has been trying to negotiate next summer’s caretakers for the town beach. The perks will include a place to moor a boat and park a camper for the summer and a waterfront view. But, the less appealing part of the gig — the responses of some people when it comes to being asked to follow the town beach rules.

Bluegrass Fest at Narramissic Saturday the Maine Country Music Association and in 2006 she received the Harold Carter Memorial Award from the Down East Country Music Association. Her talent for combining the precision of classical music with the spontaneity of country and bluegrass fiddle makes for a fun-filled performance every time she plays. Steve Roy is a multiinstrumentalist from Portland. While he is most well-known for his bass playing, he also plays and teaches mandolin, guitar, and fiddle. Bluegrass Now magazine calls him a “dangerous weapon.” Steve also performs regularly in a wide variety of jazz, rock, country, rockabilly, and folk groups, and sometimes as a solo artist. Matt Shipman currently resides in Portland, and is a performer and teacher of acoustic and traditional music. He has been teaching guitar and mandolin at a Community Music School in Yarmouth for five years now and has been performing for around 10 years. He also enjoys playing bouzouki, tenor and clawhammer banjo. He is currently working on a recording centered around Celtic finger-style guitar. Ken Taylor has been performing with Erica for eight years playing acoustic bass and adds some vocals for the group. Ken keeps the band tight with arguably the most solid bass playing in the New

England area. He originally started as a guitar player with an interest in folk music but was soon sidetracked into bluegrass. Ken plays like an old master, his style is powerful, his timing is right-on and his love of music shows in every performance. Read McNamara started playing banjo at the age of 18 while at college. As he puts it, “Everyone else played guitar. After my grandfather died, I inherited his old Gibson banjo, so I started playing that to change things up a bit.” The ancient tones of bluegrass struck a chord with Read, and he and the four other members of his college band began immersing themselves in all things bluegrass. Tricky Britches: Rooted in old-time country, with a bluegrass kick and the bounce of a street-corner jug band, Tricky Britches will put some swing in your step from the moment you hear them. Songwriting chalk full of down-home harmonies and dirty licks, their original material harkens back to humble beginnings sawing out mountain tunes on the Portland, Maine, sidewalk. Tricky Britches formed in 2009, playing on street corners across the country, simply as a means of paying for a road trip. Suddenly there were weddings, parties, and dances to be played, and before the boys knew it, Tricky Britches had gained too much momentum to be

Plein Air event Saturday at Harvest Gold Gallery CENTER LOVELL — Join local favorite artists Kristin Dill and Diane Scott for a morning of plein air painting on the lawn at Harvest Gold Gallery this Saturday, Aug. 3. Both artists will be setting up their easels and capturing the amazing view of Kezar Lake and the White Mountains of western Maine. Plein air style painting is when the artist sets up outside and paints in the fresh air. Kristin Dill’s favorite thing to do as an artist is to paint outdoors. There’s an immediacy standing outside. The light changes constantly, bugs whirr by. Kristin mostly paints 8”x10” oils outdoors. Her goal is to complete the painting in an hour because the light changes swiftly. She paints quickly to capture what’s pulled her to paint a subject. This gives the paintings a lively, fresh feeling.  Kristin graduated from the University of Southern Maine, and has now taken residency with her husband on Moose Pond in Bridgton during the summer. Their summer home is next to Camp Winona, the 105-year-old boys camp where her husband spent his summers growing up. The rest of the year they live in Raleigh, N.C.  Diane Scott is also a local artist who loves to paint plein air landscapes, urban scenes, and seascapes in oils. She describes her work as impressionistic, and tries to reflect her excitement and love for painting through expressive brushwork and heightened

Author of Best Seller at Waterford Library WATERFORD — As part of a series of presentations by local authors at the Waterford Library, Amity Shlaes will discuss her recent biography of Calvin Coolidge at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 6 at the library. Coolidge is a national bestseller that debuted at number three on the New York Times list. The biography of the 30th president, who served from 1923 to 1929, was ranked an editor’s choice at the Times and praised by the Economist magazine, which said, “Shlaes’s biography provides a window onto an unfairly tarnished period. It deserves to be widely read.” Silent Cal endured much tragedy, including the death of his son during the White House years. Yet he always persevered. Most important of all is his remarkable record of thrift. Coolidge was a legendary budget cutter, working in partnership with his budget director General Herbert Mayhew Lord (of Colby and Rockland, Maine.) Silent Cal left office with the federal government actually smaller than he had found it, an almost impossible feat for a peacetime president. Often portrayed as a Scrooge, Coolidge may have been sour, but as Amity shows, he was a Scrooge who begat plenty. Join others to hear the story of how Coolidge’s application of New England values restored America. Shlaes is the author of two other national bestsellers, The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression, and The Greedy Hand: How Taxes Drive Americans Crazy. A longtime syndicated columnist and Forbes magazine writer, she directs the economic project at the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Library. She is a trustee of the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation. Amity and her husband Seth Lipsky, author of Abraham Cahan, a biography (forthcoming), are proud Birch Rock and Encore/Coda parents and spend as much time as they can in Waterford.

FRYEBURG — Maine Mountain Post & Beam, owned and operated by J. Scott Campbell, has opened a shop on Portland Street in Fryeburg. Campbell started the business over 13 years ago when he worked out of the dooryard at his Brownfield home. The new 40’x60’ facility, built by Campbell, allows him muchneeded indoor space to focus on his work in a more visible and convenient location. Specializing in the dismantle, repair and re-assembly of antique timber frame structures, Maine Mountain Post & Beam also designs and cuts new timber frames based on the traditional framing styles of New England. “Each of these buildings have a history of their own — stories and memories ingrained within their walls,” Campbell said. “The traditional techniques used by the carpenter of the past have kept these buildings standing for hundreds of years. I want them to stand for hundreds more.” A timber framer for over 15 years, Scott grew up in rural Pennsylvania, where his parents’ renovations of two old farmhouses helped fuel his passion for old buildings. He has lived in Brownfield for 13 years, where he has been renovating an old farmhouse

Take a chance on fine artisans’ crafts

The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will hold the 38th Annual Arts and Artisans Fair on Saturday, Aug. 17 at the New Suncook School from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This fair is the biggest fundraiser for the library, with the proceeds going toward the many programs for both children and adults held at the library. Along with the presented items of the artisans, there will be lunch and a used book sale in the cafeteria. A major part of the fair is the raffle of items donated to the library by the artisans incuding botanical lampshades by Jennifer Allen, Americana crafts by Jill A. Cooney, Sally bags by Jane Durkee Prescott, small painting by Gwen Nagel, herbal products by Betsy Ann Golon, pottery by Celia Talbot, quilting by Sandra White, metal works by Edie Bentinnen, jewelry by Boyd Johnson and woodwork by Jeff Peterson. All can be seen at the library. Chances are $1 apiece, or a book of six for $5. Chances can be bought at the library and the day of the fair. Sally Wissman has taken over

the chairmanship from Jane Gleason, who has served the library well for 21 years in that position. The Lovell Historical Society will have a special evening with Jack Kelly on Sunday, Aug. 4 at the Kimball-Stanford House at 6 p.m. Kelly will be talking about Maine at Gettysburg during the historic battle there.

Folks like a bean supper The June 22 supper held at the Edes Falls Community Hall was well-attended. Folks still like to have a Saturday night bean supper, it seems. The Edes Falls Sewing Circle held their annual food and craft sale July 13, and on Saturday, Aug. 10, they will hold an inside yard sale at the Community Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Seems like a busy summer. It’s a bit early, but ‘tis the season for the occasions of school reunions and family reunions. The Adams Family Reunion will be held this year on Saturday, Aug. 10 at the family farm on Wiley Road. It will be an all-day affair. There will be grills on hand for those bringing meats to cook. Remember, if you were related to Tracy Lee Adams Sr. or H. Gardner Adams, you have a standing invitation. The sign beside the driveway says Just-a-Mere Farm. Charles Adams took the name from his grandmother Annie Hale’s farm in Denmark many years ago. The sign over her front door read DUNMOVIN. It was beautiful weather for the food and craft sale on the Village Green put on by the Edes Falls Sewing Circle. So many other events

I have a complaint, though, about the looks of the players. Their bearded faces and chins, and shaggy manes do not make a very professional look, in my opinion. And sometimes they play about as bad as they look. Sorry, boys! Guess it’s time for a trip to the barber. Better still, get me to travel with you. Oh well, the season is half over. Guess I can stand looking at you awhile longer. I finally saw an Oriole. He was on TV, playing ball against the Red Sox. It’s early in the year, but I saw some colored leaves on some trees on Horace Files Road recently. I think the foliage will be colored early this year.

After seeing the article in The Bridgton News about the Edes Falls Park, John and I went down to see it. A park? What a laugh? Who on that committee dreamed up that idea? The sign might just as well point to anybody’s backyard. The early settlers would get a good laugh out of it. The sign is not at any junction of roads. The Cook’s Mills Road is further away, past the houses on the right. Enough grumbling about the subject. I think maybe someday it will be a park. The only thing park-like now is the big rock with the plaque on it. Cease and desist.

Time runs out on Panthers’ upset bid

BOW, N.H. — Unlike most softball games, the Maine Panthers ran out of time, not outs in a bid to upset the top-ranked team at the Turn 2 Tournament Sunday. After compiling a 2-1 record in pool play on Friday and Saturday in Bow, N.H. July 19-21, the Panthers 16U team ended an 0-2 streak against the Maine Riptides with a 2-0 victory Sunday morning behind a six-hit, five strikeout effort from pitcher Kolby Woods. The win propelled the Panthers into the third round of the single-elimination Sunday tourney to face top-seed New Hampshire Comets (Blue). With a 90-minute time limit, the Panthers led 2-0 and 3-2 before giving up the lead in the sixth inning when the Comets plated three runs on two singles, an error and a triple. Down 5-3, the Panthers stormed back to score three times as Casey Heath, Elle Burbank and Kristen Chipman all reached to start the comeback. After surrendering a leadoff single, Panther reliever Kolby Woods struck out the next two Comets players. Although the host Comets trailed 6-5, they showed no urgency to keep the game going. Needing just one out to advance, the game clock sounded. By rule, the score reverted back to the previous

Panther coaching staff was impressed with how players handled the loss. Their good sportsmanship was noticed by others, as well. “I had another coach and the umpiring crew tell me what a classy team I had. I couldn’t agree more.

Panthers edged the Breakers (Seabrook, N.H.) on Friday night. Chipman earned the game’s MVP honor with the two deciding blasts to deep center and right fields. Kolby Woods struck out nine, allowing just four hits (three of them bunt singles). The Panthers collected five hits led by Chipman who went 2-for-3. Other players with hits were Casey Simpson, Casey Heath and Elle Burbank. The defensive play of the game was a diving catch by Panther catcher Allison Morse in the fourth inning. Mystics 4, Panthers 1: What looked like a promising effort turned sour for the Panthers as two miscues proved costly against the Mystics on Saturday. Shortstop Casey Heath turned a double play on a roller up the middle, tagging second and gunning a Mystic hitter out at first to end the opening frame. But, the Panther defense came unglued in the second. With two out, the Mystics rallied behind two base hits and a walk. With a run in, Coach Rivet elected to throw down to second on a steal attempt, but catcher Allison Morse’s high throw was slightly off target and sailed into the outfield. A return throw was also off the mark, enabling the Mystics to score two more runs. PANTHER, Page C

added. “The Comet coach told me as we shook hands after the game, ‘Coach, your team deserved to win.’ I simply responded, ‘Yes, we did.’ We were disappointed with the game’s outcome, but I couldn’t have been more proud of this team.” The Comets lost in the finals to the Mystics, 9-6. “We lost to the Mystics 41, mainly because we made two errors on one play which opened the door for them,” Coach Rivet said. “I know we certainly could play with them, and our girls certainly would have liked the chance to play them again.” The Panthers included: Ashley Clark, Casey Heath and Brittany Perreault of Lake Region; Elle Burbank, Kristen Chipman and Allison Morse of Fryeburg Academy; Kylie Martin, Emily Whittemore and Kolby Woods of Poland; Casey Simpson of Cheverus; Savanna Morin of Oxford Hills; KK Lorrain and Maddie Morse of Lake Region Middle School. Troy Morse was the assistant coach. Andy Clark served as general manager and scorekeeper. The Panthers also received help from Kristina Stevens.

(Continued from Page C) The Panthers left seven players in scoring position, finally breaking through in the sixth as Kristen Chipman belted her second double of the game and scored on Kylie Martin’s base hit. The Panthers had eight hits. Casey Simpson went 2-for-4, Chipman 2-for-3, Martin 2-for-3 and Emily Whittemore (who received the game’s MVP honor) roped a double. Ashley Clark took the loss, relieved by Martin. Panther pitching allowed just five hits. Panthers 13, Firebirds 7: Casey Heath (double) and Emily Whittemore each had three hits to spark a 15hit attack as the Panthers rolled past the New England Firebirds. The Panthers broke the game open with five runs in the fourth inning, keyed by an Allison Morse triple (she received the game’s MVP honor), and six runs in the fifth, triggered by a Brittany Perreault triple in the leftcenter gap and double by Heath. Casey Simpson collected two hits in the leadoff spot and scored three times; Chipman went 2-for4; Whittemore scored three times; Morse 2-for-4; Woods and Morin each had base hits. Woods picked up the victory, relieved by Martin, who had three strikeouts. Panthers 2, Riptide 0: Ranked eighth after pool play, the Panthers faced the Maine Riptide (#9) on elimination day Sunday. Having gone 0-2 against the Riptide

in other tournament play, the Panthers were eager to gain a little revenge. Kolby Woods continued to spin her magic against the Tide, allowing just one hit while striking out seven to lead the Panthers to a 2-0 victory. Woods pitched five scoreless frames against the Riptide in a Waterville tourney, and ran that streak to 12 innings with a gem. The Tide’s only hit came in the first inning on a solid shot up the middle with two out. The Panthers wasted a good scoring chance in the first when Elle Burbank crushed a triple to right with two out, but was stranded. In the second, the Panthers again threatened by getting consecutive singles from Emily Whittemore, Kylie Martin and Allison Morse. But, the Tide escaped trouble with an infield fly ball out, strikeout and fielder’s choice. The Panthers finally broke through in the fourth inning on base hits by Whittemore, Morse, Woods and Simpson, along with a walk to Ashley Clark. After retiring 18 straight including two strikeouts to start the seventh, Woods wiggled out of trouble after allowing a walk and seeing a fly ball to the outfield drop for an error by ending the game with her seventh strikeout. Comets 5, Panthers 4: After seeing the Comets hammer the Extreme, the Panthers sent an early message that this game would be no cakewalk. The Panthers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first when

TAKING A FEW PRACITCE SWINGS before she heads to bat is Panther third baseman Kristen Chipman, who led the team offensively at Bow, hitting over .400 with a homerun and a pair of triples. The Fryeburg Academy junior was named a game MVP. Casey Simpson singled and Kristen Chipman crushed a first pitch over the left fielder’s head for a home run. The Comets tied the game with a run in the second and one in the third off Panther starter Kylie Martin. Panther outfielder Brittany Perreault made an outstanding running catch, and nearly doubled up a Comet runner at first, making a long throw from the leftfield line in the third inning. After leaving runners (Morse and Clark each singled with two out) at second and third in the fourth, the Panthers regained the lead in the fifth as Simpson beat out an infield hit and later scored

on a Chipman single. The Panthers added a run in the sixth as Clark singled with two out, and Woods belted a RBI double to left. The Comets finally caught up with Martin, who had scattered five hits over five innings. Two hits and an error loaded the bases with no one out. Woods came on in relief, and was greeted with a three-run bomb on a 3-1 pitch by Comet pitcher Lily Rivera. The Panthers regrouped as Morse picked Rivera off third base, and Woods recorded a strikeout to end the inning. Despite a valiant Panther comeback in the seventh, time ran out on Cinderella.

Hole in one at St. Andrew’s

Not to upstage Phil Mickelson’s great round and win at the British Open, Matt Wessenberg of Harrison also made an impact in Scotland. Matt, a member of the Naples Golf and Country Club, was named to the American High School Golf Championship squad that toured and played several courses at Saint Andrews in Scotland in late June. Matt recently graduated from Catholic Memorial High School in West Roxbury, Mass., where he was a threetime all-conference player in the Catholic Conference. He was captain his senior year. Playing the tough Eden Course at the Saint Andrews Links, Matt used a pitching wedge on the 144-yard, par 3, fifth hole to sink the once in a lifetime shot. “It doesn’t get better than this,” Matt said. Matt also played the Old course at Saint Andrews, shooting a 77 and 80 in his two rounds. He was awed by the tradition and great players that have played the course. He was accompanied by his father, Mike Wessenberg, on the trip.

Matt, who will be attending Assumption College in the fall, is the son of Mike and Felicia Wessenberg, parttime residents of Harrison. He is the grandson of Bill and Claire Wessenberg of Casco.

Azel receives Irish Award

(Continued from Page C) definitely given me a broader perspective of the world. It’s given me the chance to travel and see so many different life styles. It’s shown me how the environment and culture are directly linked.” Sasha started focusing on environmental classes her sophomore year when she took environmental chemistry. It was a month-long class at the end of the year. “I only took it because I had enjoyed chemistry that same year and I liked the teacher, it’s the class that made me decide that the environment was something I wanted to have channeled into my studies,” she said. “My senior year I took AP Environmental Studies because while I had been interested for so long I knew there was a lot I hadn’t explored or even thought of regarding the subject. Mr. Rhymer, my advisor and teacher at the Academy,

has definitely influenced me into that direction more then I think I would have been without him.” Sasha cannot officially declare what engineering field she is entering as a freshman so her first year will be all general classes. “Certainly nothing concerning the environment yet I don’t think, just your basic math, science, and English courses,” she said. “After college, hopefully I’ll be able to get a field job as opposed to one where I sit in an office. That really depends on what I focus on and get my degree in. As an engineer I’m interested in problem solving. With so many environmental concerns, I don’t want to just learn what they are but learn how to fix them as well.” Sasha and a generation of determined students like her bode well for the future of our natural world.

DEDICATED TRUMPETEER — Though he’s still a sophomore, Zachary Gray of Bridgton has garnered an impressive long list of honors for his skills as a trumpet player. When he was just a freshman, Zachary Gray tied for the highest score in the state among high school trumpet players. Now a sophomore, the honors just keep racking up for this Lake Region High School Concert Band member. Six years of practice and dedication — not to mention a good set of lungs — have led Gray, the son of Jody and Daniel Gray, to be selected for the National Association for Music Education’s All-National Honors Band, which will perform this October at the Opryland Hotel. He’s just finishing up a stay at the Southern Maine Music Academy Camp, where he played 4th Chair Trumpet. This fall, he’ll be performing with the Portland Youth Wind Ensemble, along with his regular concert band performances. Somehow, he’ll also find time to continue playing trumpet with the Mineral Springs Brass Ensemble of Kennett High School, where he’s been a member since his middle school days. Zachary began playing the trumpet six years ago, and it seems he thrived in his choice of musical instrument. At both the middle school and high school level, he’s been a part of just about every regional music festival, at both the District II and Southern Maine levels. His performance this year as principal trumpet at the All-State Music Festival led to his selection as a member of this year’s NAfME All-National Honors Band. A soft-spoken young man, Zach doesn’t make a lot of fuss about his accomplishments. His mom, the chairwoman of the SAD 61 Board of Directors, holds no such reservations, however. She’s proud of her son. Zach said that when he graduates high school, he wants to go on to college to major in Music Education, and eventually plans to earn his doctorate in Music Theory.

Azel receives Irish Award LOVELL — Sasha Azel of Center Lovell is the 2013 recipient of the Kezar Lake Watershed Association’s Joan Irish award. Sasha graduated from Fryeburg Academy this summer, and is attending Virginia Tech in the fall to major in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Each year, the Joan Irish Award honors a local student who has shown a serious interest in the environment, and who intends to pursue environmental studies. The winner is selected by the local high schools from among their top-graduating seniors. Sasha grew up in Lovell, the daughter of photographer Jose Azel and Lovell librarian Anna Romer. Her favorite outdoor activities include hiking, kayaking/paddle boarding, and of course tennis. She says that her Maine country childhood has deeply affected her outlook on life.

My Irish Up by Mike Corrigan BN Columnist

To swim and perhaps sink

“Is he supposed to turn blue like that?” “He’s been practicing,” my mother primly informed the concerned swim instructor, not quite answering the girl’s question. And then, to me in an aside: “Michael Thomas Corrigan, cut that out! You’re scaring the other swimmers.” I attempted to nod. I was shivering so hard the small whirlpool I whipped up threatened to drown several of the smaller tots in my group. But did my cyanotic condition shame my mother into withdrawing me from swimming lessons for good, as I so fervently hoped? No! For an American child of the Fifties, “to swim” was part of the job description. You ate candy. You complained about there being nothing to do. You rode your bike and almost got run over by an Oldsmobile. You learned to swim. And anyway, none of Mrs. Corrigan’s other, nicer, more considerate children turned blue after only a few minutes in the water. Why did I have to be so stubborn about everything?  I thought of this the other day, when driving past two sixyear-olds “running under the hose,” as we used to call it. The two hopped and dashed and screamed and laughed and tried to avoid individual water droplets. And screamed. And laughed. When first learning to swim I screamed, but I didn’t laugh. Libby Pool, Gorham, N.H.’s recreational hotspot, was actually a dammed brook, whose source even in August was probably edged with ice. My mother hated winter and cold and should have empathized, but her duty was clear: all four of her offspring must be subjected to perfectly normal and equal opportunity childhoods. If that meant one or two of us ended up frozen to death in the midst of summer, there was really very little anyone could do about it. The rules were inviolable. When it was time to learn to swim, you swam or you sank. Our first lesson was the Dead Man’s Float. (Why did that nomenclature not seem portentous to anyone else?) “Oh, fiddlesticks, it’s fun!” the instructor, a large girl in a bulging one-piece suit insisted. “Just lean forward, put your face in the water and push off.” She pointed at a boy with gills and told him to demonstrate for us mouth-breathers, which he did. He leaned, pushed and arrowed underwater, not even the crown of his head showing until he surfaced ten or twelve yards SWIM, Page D

Guest Column Public’s opinion essential for proper planning By Anne Krieg, AICP Bridgton Director of Planning, Economic & Community Development Hello Bridgton residents and vacationers! I hope you are enjoying summer in between the raindrops! I am writing a guest article this week and will continue to do so every other week as a means to let you know what’s happening in planning, economic and community development. Hopefully reading this will cause you to ask questions, come to meetings, call/e-mail or meet with me in person about something that sparked an interest. Comprehensive Plan Right now the Comprehensive Plan Committee is working on all of the policy statements for the Comprehensive Plan. This plan sets the policy for the next 10 years for land use (yes, zoning, are you ready for that?), capital planning, municipal operations and grant pursuits. This is the document that tells me what needs to happen for the next decade, so we need to get it right and reflect what the town wants to see happen! The next open forum will be held on Monday, Aug. 5, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Tannery Pub. Special thanks to Michelle Hapgood at Campfire Grille for hosting us this past Monday night. She put a great spread out for us in the back room, and it was good to see folks going there to have dinner after the meeting. These meetings are nice and informal and everyone is encouraged to speak, share and interact in a more informal and relaxed setting; it’s always nice to get out of the office!

Not so friendly skies

I take up my pen this morning not to promote “class warfare,” please be assured, but as a war correspondent on the battlefronts between classes. Have you noticed how few and how controlled those fronts are? How rare it is for rich and not so rich to mix and mingle together? In olden days, the two groups lived around the corner from each other or up or down a flight of stairs. Now, there are miles between them. It is a chore for the under class to get to their jobs working for the folk above them. Often, there are barriers and gates that keep them apart. Their children go to separate, but unequal schools. They drive different kinds of vehicles, stay in different hotels, dine in different eateries and shop in different stores. The really poor are picked up and removed from the streets trod by their betters. Perhaps, there is but one arena left for encounters between top and bottom citizens in our society: (Here begins the intended business of these paragraphs.) That is air travel. Taking a plane

Small World by Henry Precht BN Columnist somewhere is about the only place where rich brushes up against not-so-rich even while clearly divided from them. Air travel informs us about the reality and complexity of our democracy as it exists today. A couple of weeks back, my wife and I booked airline tickets for a destination almost half way across the country. Going and coming back, there were five different flights departing from five cities. The aircraft were mainly those new, Brazilianmade, pencil-shaped jets with insufficient space for largerthan-normal carry-on bags. Boarding was divided into three groups: #1 was firstclass, #2 was business types and #3 was the huddled masses. Among the latter, somehow, we were mostly in seats 19 or 20 behind which there was no other human. We

weren’t called first to board, as used to be the way to fill from rear to front; group one was called first to make themselves comfortable up forward before the masses squeezed by. I was seated too far back to see what the first folk up front were served while we got a soft beverage and no snack. Perhaps, it was the domestic equivalent of transatlantic white tablecloth, silver and fine wines. On those longer flights, one really is made aware of who counts above the clouds. On short domestic hops, there is no curtain to draw between those who have legroom and the don’t haves. Waiting between flights provides an even better perspective for studying the sociology of our country. Americans come in the widSKIES, Page D

Anne Krieg Infrastructure Improvement Grants Other projects include administrating a Community Development Block Grant project to fix the wastewater lines in the downtown, and fixing the sidewalks and curbing on Depot Street. The Block Grant Program is a great opportunity for Bridgton to spruce up its infrastructure, as well as make improvements to historic buildings like the Moses House, the new location for the Rufus Porter Museum and the Bridgton Historical Society. Last week I attended training on this program as I am kneedeep in paperwork on this program; but it’s worth it! Memorial School I am also working, as you may have read, on the Memorial School. We have the opportunity to clean up this building with a grant from EPA. This program is called the Brownfields Program, and it may seem complicated in how the land needs to be transferred, but we are working to make this a successful development for the town!

To The Editor: What a wonderful day we had at Bridgton Veterinary Hospital, Sunday, July 21 at our Pet Community Event! Rescues, shelters, artists, vendors and animal lovers of all kinds gathered together to celebrate our pet community. We had dogs, cats, rats and even a goat here for the event! Our quilt raffle and silent auction raised $399 dollars for The Rusty Fund. Two dogs and two cats found new homes with people who saw them here that day. We have a few special “thanks” for some folks who provided us with some extra help: Bridgton Academy, for letting us borrow two of their event tents (the extra shade was much appreciated by people and pets); KathyJo Farren and Dawn ElliotJohnson for providing the equipment and extra help for the Rally Obedience demonstrations; Will Denison and Sam Little for coming early to help with all the tent set up and later tear down; and to Sam for photographing the event. We had wonderful exhibitors here, people who do amazing things to help animals in need. If you are considering adopting a pet we encourage you to talk to any of these organizations: Molly’s Moments of Bryant Pond, Animal Rescue Unit of Bridgton, Harvest Hills Animal Shelter of Fryeburg,

Cemeteries are cool

To the Editor: Cemeteries are cool, especially the burying grounds of the Colonial and immedi-

Medicare nugget By Stan Cohen Medicare Volunteer Counselor When Medicare’s prescription drug program (Part D) was inaugurated in 2006, Canadian pharmacies were not licensed to operate in Maine. Even so, thousands of Maine seniors had been obtaining some or all of their prescription drugs from Canadian sources. The importation of drugs from Canada became less of an issue when Part D came along because that new program provided lower prices on many medicines compared to previous U.S. prices. At this point, lower prices from Canadian pharmacies, in many cases, became less attractive. However, copays for some medicines under Part D continued to be unaffordable for hundreds of Maine seniors. Fast forward to June 28, 2013. A new bill passed by the Maine state legislature became law on that date. It is NUGGET, Page D ate post-Revolutionary War eras. There’s nothing ghoulish about this, although I had a recent experience at the South Bridgton cemetery that was peculiar, to say the least; more about that later. While I lived in Massachusetts I was able to visit the cemeteries/burying grounds in Boston, Arlington, Quincy, Salem, Concord, etc. The Granary Burying Ground and King’s Chapel Burying Ground on Tremont Street in Boston contain the remains of such notables as Paul Revere, Crispus Attucks, James Otis and Mary Chilton, who came over on the Mayflower in 1620 and claimed to be the first person to step foot on Plymouth soil. Copps Hill Burying Ground in the North End is the burial site of the Reverends Cotton and Increase Mather. Cotton Mather was controversial for teaming up with Dr. Bolyston to perform the first smallpox inoculation. The old gravestones are interesting for their design, inscriptions and life spans of those interred. They tell many stories of our early settlers. The earliest gravestone had images of skulls and crossbones, which changed over the years to human faces, cherubs and angel wings instead of cross bones. The last change was to Grecian urns and weeping willows, the type seen in Bridgton cemeteries. There is a cemetery in Harpswell that has examples of the earlier images. Some of the stories are of sadness and tragedy. LETTERS, Page D

On a ‘gender spectrum’

Boys will be boys, right? Not necessarily. Not anymore. In today’s public schools, boys might be girls. Not really of course, but people in the school have to act as if they were. Any who might object will likely find themselves forced into “sensitivity training.” Students are being taught to deny their instincts. They know intuitively that there are two complementary sexes. They know what boys are and what girls are, but they’re being brainwashed into believing that male/female is a false dichotomy. Homosexual activists have become fluid-gender activists and they’re plying their propaganda playbook. They’ve been working very hard for decades to transform public schools and they’re at a point now where they dictate policy. Our children are being indoctrinated into believing that human beings are not male and female — that we’re all on a “gender spectrum” and we can change at will. It’s dangerous in many ways, but mostly it’s dangerous because we’re encouraging children to repudiate their very nature. That’s bound to interfere with the learning process at other levels as well. If a kindergarten boy wants to be seen as a girl, the whole school has to treat him as if he were a girl. If students, teachers, or anyone else thinks there’s something wrong with that, they better keep their thoughts to themselves. Give


(Continued from Page D) There is a cemetery in New Hampshire with two adults and four children, and all the children died within a year or two or each other. There was probably an epidemic of some sort that took the lives of those children in such a short time span. There is a plot in the North Bridgton cemetery with headstones of two boys who died at ages of 1 and 3 years, with the inscription: “Of such is the kingdom of heaven” Tales of sadness: many of the headstones had compelling inscriptions. A headstone in the Chadbourne Hill/ Middle Ridge cemetery had

Front Row Seat by Tom McLaughlin BN Columnist voice to your thoughts and you’ll be told there’s something wrong with you. Other kindergarteners who know intuitively and instinctively that their classmate is a boy are taught not only to deny their instincts, but also that their instincts and their intuition are bad — hurtful to the boy — and must be repressed. Adults around them insist the boy who thinks himself a girl isn’t confused. Instead, it’s they who are confused. Our mainstream media is complicit in all this. When they report on such cases, they use personal pronouns “she” and “her” when referring to the boy as if there could no doubt he was in fact a girl because he said he was, and that’s all that’s required. They “self-identify” as the law in Maine states. Has it ever bothered you when the media does that? Have you repressed your instincts when reading or hearing those mis-assigned personal pronouns? Did you think there was something wrong with you for thinking that just because a man or boy says he’s really a woman or girl, that doesn’t make it so? Would it surprise you to learn

that if you didn’t believe the man was a woman because he said so, and instead you believed that he was a very confused man, you may be charged with a human rights violation? You must watch the emperor parade naked down the street and you must praise his new clothes just as everyone else does. If the emperor says he’s a woman, you must also call him “empress.” We all must celebrate “diversity,” like it or not — or else. Last December, after years of intense, drawn-out lobbying by homosexual activists, the American Psychiatric Association dropped “Gender Identity Disorder” from its list of psychological disorders. Was the decision based on scientific research? No. It was political pressure, just like its decision in 1973 to drop homosexuality from the list when homosexuals shouted down speakers they didn’t like at the annual APA convention. Political pressure drives APA decisions way more than science. The Catholic Church, the religion to which this writer belongs, still teaches that homosexuality is disordered. It refuses to

this to say: Behold & see as you pass by As you are now so once was I And as I am so you must be Prepare for death & follow me” The life spans tell another story. The life expectancy in the late 18th century was only 35 years of age, but that is misleading, as so many died in infancy and early childhood and so many lived into their 70s, 80s and 90s. A Bell curve depicting this phenomenon would be very flat. One family plot in New Hampshire I visited had five or six people buried there who were all 70, 75 and older. As to that “recent experience:” I was standing at Dea. (Deacon) John Peabody’s grave in the South Bridgton cemetery and I heard the distinct sound of breathing. I kid

you not. There would be a 2-3 second sound of wheezing/breathing, silence for 6-7 seconds, and then the wheezing/breathing; it stopped after a few minutes. I kid you not. Cemeteries are cool and tell many, many stories; you just have to — listen. Bob Casimiro Bridgton

This letter is about my discovery that the Hannaford’s ad that I received in the Maine Sunday Telegram and the flyer distributed at the Bridgton store has remarkably different prices. Hannaford’s in Bridgton has been my “one-stop-shopping” store in Bridgton since it opened. I enjoy the quality of items and the friendliness of the employees. When I compared the ad I received in Sunday’s newspaper with the ad I picked up in the Bridgton store, I found the exact same items listed. (The ads were for the week of July 14 to July 20). However, the prices in the Bridgton store were significantly higher. The prices on the first page were the same although the “savings” amounts differed. Beginning on page 2 came the surprises.

budge in spite of the scorn heaped upon them continually by those same activists. Schools across the country are being forced to allow boys who say they’re girls to use the girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms. In California, the Obama Justice Department helped homosexual activists force a school there to allow a girl who thinks she’s a boy to sleep in boys’ rooms unchaperoned on school trips. “Equality Maine” is sending paid homosexual activists out here to rural Maine for “re-education” on “transgender issues” this year. They’re determined to convince us hicks out here in the sticks that we have a problem if we don’t believe men are women or women are men just because they think they are. For years, I claimed that homosexual activists were using government and schools to brainwash Americans into furthering their agenda, but I don’t think that’s accurate anymore. They are the government now, and since our public schools are government schools, they are the schools too. They’re so thoroughly interwoven into staff, curricula and school board policy statements that there’s no more separating the two. If any of this makes you uncomfortable, you better keep quiet unless you’re okay with being labeled a bigot. Tom McLaughlin of Lovell is a retired U.S. History middle school teacher.

Bird Watch by Jean Preis BN Columnist

Moving along

It is seven o’clock in the morning and we are sitting by the big window, sipping hot tea and munching raisin toast. Normally, at this hour, we would be looking out at the view, but a cloud has settled down onto us, and soft gray mist veils part of the yard and most of the cove. The lake is missing entirely. It reminds me of a poem by Carl Sandburg, that begins “The fog comes on little cat feet…” We crank open the window to listen for birds, but the yard is quiet, muffled by the mist. Then we hear the sweet sound of the song sparrow, a triplet of notes followed by a musical trill, and the clear chirping calls of goldfinches. It is reassuring to know there are still birds out there in the gray world. We sip our tea, nibble our toast, and hope some other signal of the natural world will reach us. After a while, the rising sun warms the air and the mist begins to move slightly. It drifts up and out, first revealing the edge of the lake and then the top of the oak tree by the dock, where we discover a bird perched on a bare twig that sticks up from the tree’s crown. The light is poor and the bird is backlit, but we can see its upright stance, and that is enough to let us make an educated guess about its identity. I guess it is a cedar waxwing, a guess that is confirmed when I look through binoculars. The bird has no stripes or other strong markings, and it has a crest, which is folded down slightly. If the light were better I would see how sleek the bird is, with warm brown on the breast, a creamy yellow belly, and a narrow black mask through the eyes. I might also see the bright yellow tip of the tail and even the red waxy feather tips on the wings. Cedar waxwings can be found in Maine year round. They breed here, as well as across the northern United States and Canada. In winter, they move southward, dispersing across southern Canada, the United States, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean islands. Highly social birds who live and travel in flocks, they tend to be nomadic, attracted to areas with abundant crops of berries and MOVING, Page D Farms Smoked Sausage was $1 more, organic grape tomatoes were $.80 more, Heluva Good Cheese was $1 more, Glad Cling Wrap was $.50 more and, worst of all, the deli prices were up to $2 a pound more! I cannot understand this extreme variation from Hannaford’s many other stores. Bridgton is certainly not a remote location, which would significantly increase transportation costs. While many of us are seasonal residents, these increases also affect the year-round residents of Bridgton, who shop at Hannaford’s. I have not compared the “off-season” prices. I certainly see this as unfair and would like to hear your explanation of this policy. Barbara Mercier Sebago

Medicare’s journey

To The Editor: This month, Medicare turns 48. Since Medicare was signed into law July 30, 1965 by President Johnson, the program has helped millions of people 65-plus, as well as many younger Americans with disabilities get the health care coverage they need. Prior to the creation of Medicare, only half of the older adults in the United States had health insurance because coverage was often


unavailable or unaffordable. While you may understand the benefits of Medicare, did you know that it took almost two decades for Medicare to be signed into law? President Truman tried on three occasions to implement a national health insurance program without success. In 1961, a task force convened by President John F. Kennedy recommended the creation of a national health insurance program specifically for those over 65. President Kennedy gave a televised speech about the need for Medicare in May of 1962. President Johnson continued the call in 1964 urging Congress to create Medicare. Finally, in 1965, Congress passed legislation creating the Medicare program.  When Medicare coverage began, more than 19 million Americans 65-plus enrolled in the program. Today, nearly 50 million Americans depend on Medicare for their health insurance coverage. With increasing life expectancies and more people turning 65 every day, the number of people in Medicare is expected to double between the years 2000 and 2030. 


Because this program is vital to so many, it’s important we take the time to appreciate Medicare’s journey. Equally important, we need to make sure that we do all we can to ensure the program remains strong for current and future generations.

(Continued from Page D) save electing honorable men or women to our halls of government. While I agree that upstanding citizenship should be at the top of the list of qualifications for public office, I think that power is a most corruptible force and human nature being what it is, even honorable men and women need help in navigating the rocks and shoals of government service. Over the past 100 years, the federal government has spread its control into more and more areas of the economy and the liberties of the people, mostly in marginally or out and out unconstitutional areas. Given the unrestrained growth of government, I see the question as what has allowed our government, the unions and big business to unite in this endeavor to eliminate God from the public square; dictate individual behavior and control the marketplace? The tax code and regulations have allowed this uncontrolled growth to threaten the very liberties that come with mankind’s unalienable rights. How can we check and reverse this trend toward administrative tyranny? The answer, as I see it, is to reform the tax code and regulations, which provide the raison d’etre for lobbyists and special interest groups. Taxes and regulations give government the tools to change its role from servant of the people to mastery over them.   The tax code (71,684 pages according to Wikipedia) gives the politicians the funding and confusion required to run the bureaucracy and provide for the requirements of the special interest groups, lobbyists and core constituencies. Federal regulations (157,974 pages costing 1.7 trillion dollars — or $15,586 per family in 2009) provide the hammer to keep the economy on the right ideological course. Between the tax code and the regulatory colossus, the Constitution has been shredded and free market capitalism has been morphed into monopolistic crony capitalism.  The losers in this political climate are the middle class and the poor; the gov-





ernment taxes the middle class in order to the fund the bureaucracy, redistribute wealth to the poor and to their crony capitalist friends. The middle class, no matter whatever the politicians say to the contrary, pay for the administrative state’s growth; pay to keep the poor in dependent slavery and pay so that the crony capitalists can thrive and contribute to the re-election campaigns of the politicians. This is the practical application of redistribution of wealth in the political milieu.   Government officials use the tax code to punish political rivals — most recently with the tax-exempt applications of groups who opposed the president’s re-election in 2012. The applications were stalled for as many as three years; names of donors were insisted upon (even though the law does not require it and groups supporting the president were not required to do so) and then the donor’s names were leaked to the press, which resulted in investigations of the donors by the IRS and a subsequent fall off in donations. This is voter suppression in its rawest form and could account for the margin of victory in the 2012 presidential campaign. Government officials use interlocking regulations in order to obtain ideological results; this administration is committed to the redistribution of wealth from the producers to the non-producers.  Government’s claim that they are only asking the rich to pay their fair share is a canard, which is belied by government tax policies that lay the burden of government on those in the middle class who work for a living.   Energy production is stymied at every turn by the EPA increasing the cost of everything. The train wreck known as Obamacare is increasing the cost of health insurance but does nothing to make medical care better. The IRS has been politicized and is engaged in suppressing the votes of those who disagree with the regime. National security has run amok with its efforts turned inward against the American people instead of outward against those who would harm the American people and our country.  Foreign policy appears

to be doing everything possible to diminish our influence in the world. Those who oppose our liberties and economic success are once again labeling us as a paper tiger. Certainly, the fact that we refused to assist our ambassador and the men in Benghazi has done nothing to dispel this label. These are not the actions our Founders anticipated for the Constitutional Republic that they gave us. Our government has shifted from a Constitutional Republic to an administrative state tyranny in the throes of self-immolation (see Rome’s later years or Detroit today).   In addition to being honorable, those who would represent us need to be committed to revising the tax code and reducing the regulatory burden so that our economy can grow and we can return to the limited, representative Republic that the Founders, through the Constitution, produced for the American people. Our Constitutional Republic allowed us to become the premier country in the world until we switched the philosophy of government from “We the people” controlling our own destiny (without undue governmental interference) to “We the government” that knows what the people’s destiny ought to be and will force the people into the government’s version of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” President Washington said it best: “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence. It is force, and like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” Jock MacGregor North Sebago

Lots of smiles

To The Editor: As we pack up the final stuffed animals, rides and tents into the red barn and reflect on Casco Days 2013, all we can say is “Wow!” what a great year! Lots of smiles, lots of families had fun and, most importantly, an entire community came together for the 79th year for a very unique event! Kevin Hancock, Casco Days co-chairman, commented, “The way it brings the community together and the wholesomeness of our event are my favorite parts!” Here are some fun statistics from this year’s Casco Days midway: • 12,990 rings were tossed; • 14,808 balls were thrown; • 25,880 dimes were pitched; • And 40,136 quarters were launched (with a gamer throwing each one and a volunteer picking it back up each time).

The Casco Fire Association would like to thank all the hundreds of volunteers who helped make this year’s three-day event a reflection of a community at work and play together — it truly is a one-of-a-kind family event. There were over 350 volunteers who participated this past weekend! People from local businesses, churches, community service organizations, athletic teams, schools, camps, as well as whole families, became involved in one way or another to help pull it all together. It takes a huge number of volunteer hours and hard work and it all goes toward raising dollars that flow back into the local community. Gorgeous weather graced Casco Days Park this year and the energy in Casco Village reflected it! Our food booth served up a record number of items and despite the pre-show rain, the fireworks display impressed the Thursday night crowd. Saturday morning’s 35th annual four-miler road race was entered by a record 610 runners, including 172 area campers, who crossed the finish line! And, as always, Rick Charette and the Bubble Gum Band drew an impressive crowd for their Saturday night performance, as children danced and sang to their favorite tunes! Once again, our sincere thanks to all the wonderful folks who came to the 79th Annual Casco Days celebration, especially our business sponsors who are an integral part of the event’s success! To the hundreds of people who make Casco Days the reason to get together and celebrate family, community and pure summer fun every year, thank you! Without your support we would not be able to help local charities and groups. Thanks again for making it another great year, helping us raise over $119,000! See you in 2014, July 24-26! Kevin Hancock, Holly Hancock, Tom Mulkern and Ralph Maines Co-chairman, Casco Days 2013

We are grateful

To The Editor: CrossWalk Community Outreach and its board of directors would like to personally thank Mr. Lambert and Ms. Maxwell from the Oregon Jewish Foundation for taking the time to come out and visit our outreach here in Naples and taking such an avid interest in our programs serving our Lake Region needy families. It means so much to us to know that others are out there who truly care about LETTERS, Page D

Natalie H. Parsons

Memorial Service

NEW GLOUCESTER — Natalie H. Parsons, 92, of New Gloucester, passed away at her home on Sunday, July 21, 2013 surrounded by her loving family. Natalie was born Nov. 17, 1920, in Lewiston, the daughter of Nelson A. and Mildred B. (Jordan) Hood. She was a telephone operator for Pine Tree Telephone and Telegraph and she worked at Central Maine Medical Center in the business office. She was a longtime member of the New Gloucester Bible Church, where she was the pianist and organist. Natalie enjoyed gardening, reading, rock hounding (gemology), puzzles, going to the ocean, and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She is survived by her sons, David of New Gloucester, Robert of New Gloucester and Roger of Bridgton; daughter, Susan DeCosta of Orlando, Fla.; 18 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Natalie was predeceased by her husband, Edgar; son, Michael; sister, Estelle; and her brother, Nelson. Condolences may be expressed at There will be a memorial service on Saturday, Aug. 3, at 11 a.m. at The New Gloucester Bible Church, Lewiston Road, in New Gloucester. Burial will follow the service at the Upper Gloucester Cemetery.

William E. Tedford William “Bill” Edward Tedford, 74, died on Monday morning of July 1, 2013, in Casco. Born on March 9, 1939, in Camden to Eleanor “Elsie” Brice Tedford of Surrey, England and Lawrence “Ted” Douglas Tedford of Brazil Lake, Nova Scotia, he was well aware of the long line of Tedfords who had come and gone since the first had immigrated to this country in 1749. He grew up during F.D.R.’s administration in a family and a Camden, which was weathering the Great Depression. His was a family, which had strong friendships and community ties, instilled a sense of civic responsibility — with humor — but above all a strong work and moral ethic. In his youth, he sang in the Camden Men’s Choir and carried a rich singing voice throughout his life. He mowed lawns, caddied at the Camden Hills Golf Course and worked summers at the White Hall Inn until graduating from Camden-Rockport High in 1957. He then went on to attend and graduate from what was then called the Maine State Teacher’s College in Presque Isle, where he met and married his first wife, Laura Lee Raymond, with whom he had five children — Ric, Pam, Larry, Ted and Frank. For two years, he taught fifth grade at Saccarappa Elementary School in Westbrook, working summers at Riverside Golf Course in Portland, before becoming an insurance adjuster, and eventually the Maine State Fire Adjuster for Commercial Union Insurance, before retiring in 1994. In 1970, the Tedford family moved to Bridgton. The decade that followed found him as an original member of the Lake Region District School Board (that planned, approved and built Lake Region High School); a member of the town of Bridgton Planning Board; Cub Scout master; member of the Bridgton Lions Club, working the Fourth of July Lobster Clambake and starting the ski sale; hockey and spelling bee coach. He was a jack-of-all-trades, a few classes away from getting his master’s degree in History, gentleman farmer, Civil War buff, hunter, fisherman, ping pong player and teller of intriguing stories. As one of his granddaughters said, he lived a big life. In 1980 as one marriage was ending, he started a new life with Linda Staples and her sons, Andrew and Jeffery Houser. Married for three decades, they eventually found their way to Florida, escaping the rigors of the woodpile and the dreaded shoveling of Maine winter snow. In Florida, as in Maine, he stayed true to his many decade’s long passion for bridge, and began working toward professional shuffleboard status, which he was within earshot of acquiring. He had five grandchildren and many, many friends. He had a strong will – and rarely in 74 years, took a day off. In the morning over his usual bacon and egg breakfast, he would often ask, “What projects are you working on today?” With regard to his parenting methods he, like John Wayne, had felt the need to “ride herd” on his pack of four sons and a tomboy. An aphoristic man, (“we’ll cross In Loving Memory of that bridge when we come to it,”) it might be said about Bill, that in our beloved son the end, the mountain crossed to MARK RUSSELL ALLEN on his birthday Nov. 18, 1970 move him. We had you for 25 grand years ‘til God decided He needed you with Him, in 1995. We still love, miss, cherish and adore you on your 41st birthday, son. Forever, your parents

Jerry V. Cook

Delia Kilborn

NAPLES — Jerry Victor Cook, 76, beloved husband of Desira E. (Croteau) Cook, died Tuesday, July 30, 2013, at the Androscoggin Home and Hospice Care in Auburn after suffering a major heart attack on July 17. He was born in the old Bridgton Hospital on Main Street in Bridgton on Dec. 18, 1936, son of Rupert E. Cook and Jessie (Rose) Cook. He attended local schools and Fryeburg Academy before joining the U.S. Army in 1955 and serving in Greenland. Jerry became a member of Local 29 Boilermaker-Blacksmiths in 1965, and became a welder, traveling to many power plants and job sites in New England. Jerry was a proud member of the American Legion Post 155 in Naples and the Knights of Columbus Bridgton-Fryeburg Council #11376, where he served as Color Guard Commander, a position he greatly enjoyed with men he truly loved.

Howard K. Dearborn FRYEBURG — Howard K. Dearborn, 95, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 21, 2013, at Memorial Hospital in North Conway, New Hampshire, following a very brief illness. Howard was born on May 11, 1918, in Cleveland, Ohio, the son of Joseph H. and Rose E. (Cash) Dearborn. He attended Cleveland schools, where he graduated in 1937. In 1939, he married Verna Daso and had a son, Kenneth, in 1941. He worked in his father’s machine shop until opening his own business in 1941, called the Howard Manufacturing Company. Although his first shop was in an old warehouse by the railroad tracks, with no bathroom or heat, his business was able to contribute to the efforts of WW II. By 1979, the business grew to become Dearborn, Inc., in Berea, Ohio, currently owned and managed by his son, Kenneth. In 1965, Howard purchased the old airport property in Fryeburg, Maine, where he resided on Lovewell Pond for 48 years and built his company, the former Dearborn Precision Tubular Products, Inc. The company specialized in precision machining for the nuclear, oil drilling, and medical industries. Howard was known as an entrepreneur and businessman, but he was also an innovator and inventor. He not only designed and built much of the machinery used in his businesses, but built his first boat at the age of 16 and designed several boats later on, including the Nomad. He designed and built a camera stabilizer in the 1950s with which he made some high quality videos still enjoyed today. In 1945, he bought the old Eastman House at the foot of Hurricane Mountain and opened a Bed and Breakfast called The Dearborn Inn. During the Brownfield fire in 1947, he joined the fire patrol and carried men and water in his jeep up Burnt Meadow Mountain. He loved adventure and learned to be a pilot, purchasing his first airplane in 1967. In the 1990s, he opened a charter service called Dearborn Aviation. In 1983, he helped to create River Run in Brownfield, still owned and operated by his niece and her husband. In 1992, he started the Real World Foundation, now known as The Dearborn Foundation, awarding college scholarships to top engineering students. His latest business venture, started at the age of 92, is Dearborn Bortec, Inc. of Fryeburg, a small precision manufacturing company. For those who knew Howard, there was never a dull moment! He had a great love for German Shepherds and he always enjoyed crafting Christmas gifts in his woodworking shop. We will certainly miss you, Howard! Howard is survived by his son, Kenneth Dearborn and wife, Joanna, of Medina, Ohio; his niece, Joyce Parker and husband, Bob, of Brownfield; his nephew, Richard Brown and wife, Patricia, of North Royalton, Ohio; and his nephew, Howard Brown and wife, Janet, of Macedonia, Ohio. Howard was predeceased by his wife, Verna (Daso) Dearborn, and his sister, Pearl Brown, of Fort Myers, Florida. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to Harvest Hills Animal Shelter, Fryeburg, ME 04037, or to the Fryeburg Rescue Unit, PO Box 177, Fryeburg, ME 04037. A private celebration of Howard’s life will be held at a later date.

species is to see the undertail coverts, which on the Bohemian waxwings are cinnamon colored, and on cedar waxwings are white. Unlike the cedar waxwings, who live all across North America, Bohemians are a more northern bird, with a much more limited range that includes only Canada, the northern United States and Alaska. As we admire the bird at the top of our oak tree, the sun begins to rise above the eastern hill behind us, and the gray veil of mist lifts off the lake. It melts away as it rises, exposing the glossy surface of the water, and then, like the fog at the end of Carl Sandberg’s poem, it “…moves on.” We notice that the cedar waxwing has moved on, too, and now it is time for us to put away our tea things and do the same.

(Continued from Page D) away, shaking water off his scales and fins. “See?” the instructor said. “See how easy that was?” The other eight or nine children lined up, leaned and pushed off. I was left behind, still leaning. In fact, I quickly became accomplished at leaning. Here I go! Okay! No? Now! Here I go! No? Now — here I go! No? “Don’t be scared,” the instructor said. “I’m not s-sc-scared,” I said. “My f-fe-feet are f-fr-frozen to the b-b-bo-bottom.” My classmates came up sputtering and dripping and squealing and gasping. I was still leaning when they splashed convivially back to line up again. From there we all leaned together, and everyone else pushed off and came up shaking themselves like eager puppies and calling to each other in companionable tones while planning hikes and swimming parties and bike rides and future marriages as I stood there, still leaning. After several lessons, I was able to duck my head completely underwater, but only for the first splash; after that I moved like a foundering submarine with its periscope stuck

in the Up position. I learned to Dog Paddle before ever once successfully executing the Dead Man’s Float. Eventually, by cheating, I made it all the way to Intermediate Level. My backstroke wasn’t bad, though, lacking a rudder, I tended to splash around in a circle. The Red Cross, an appropriate accrediting organization given my condition, issued a certificate and told me to get the heck out of their pool, which I did. My father enjoyed “a dip,” as he called it. He churned manfully along, a side wheeling steamboat, huffing and gasping and slapping the water like a walrus doing the Australian crawl. Dad kind of pushed the water away from in front of him, then his thrashing limbs filled the gap he’d made and so parts of him emerged from a swim still dry. My siblings were pretty good in the water. Mom didn’t go in. Once in awhile she’d go down and look at the lake, mournfully, as if it were a prize denied her. She felt about the water the same way she felt about beer. She’d tell my Dad, “I wish I liked the taste of that stuff. On a hot summer day, beer just looks so cold!” And yet, on a cool early summer day, Libby Pool didn’t look “so cold?” Cruelty, cruelty… Mike still doesn’t like beer either.

The BLT has read aloud tips, free books to read aloud, learning kits, and brief guides showing what children should be learning as they age toward five years old. Children are born with huge brains, and over the next five years parents must help wire those eager baby brains to prepare for kindergarten and a lifetime of achievement. And once the school doors open, parents who want their children to thrive must continue to play an active role in their children’s development: helping teachers, demonstrating reading skills and promoting active learning. The cornerstone of all these efforts is a parent reading aloud to his/her children 30 minutes a day. Too tired at the end of your day to read aloud? Get your child to read to you. Grab a book, sit down with your child, and just look at the book together. Read

Illegals made legal?

To The Editor: Why do they hate us, the citizens? It is not just the U.S. Congress that wants to make illegals legal, it is the Maine Legislature, as well. SP550, Joint Resolution to Support Comprehensive Immigration Reform ends with this: “RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Twentysixth Legislature now assembled in the First Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, support comprehensive immigration reform that addresses earned legalization with a path to

citizenship, updated future immigration of families and workers and improved immigration enforcement and border security that is consistent with national values.” We, in the Bridgton, Harrison, Naples area, are represented by Senator Jim Hamper (R) and Representatives Lisa Villa (D-Harrison) and Christine Powers (D-Naples). Senator Hamper voted against SP550 while Representatives Villa of Harrison and Powers of Naples voted for it. Folks, come November of 2014, you might just want to remember this vote. Part of the comprehensive immigration reform bill that SP550 supports allows illegal immigrants to be able to forge the first two passports with no penalty, penalties would start the third forgery. It also exempts illegals from Obamacare, making it very profitable for employers to hire illegals instead of U.S. citizens. Rev. Bob Celeste Harrison

Reading aloud

The BLT’s free ReadAnd-Run opportunities continue around town this summer through Aug. 23. Read-And-Run is also a great opportunity for parents to get tips on how to read aloud most effectively. The BLT has plenty of practical ideas and free tools available for local parents, just for the asking. Text the BLT at 595-0736; leave a message on our Facebook page or call 647-2389.

According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, cedar waxwings are one of the few North American species of birds that specialize in eating fruit, and they can live for months on a diet of nothing but fruit. If we were to see a waxwing perched on top of our oak tree in winter, we would try to get a closer look at the wings, and at the color of the feathers under the bird’s tail, the undertail coverts. In winter, there is a chance the bird might be a Bohemian waxwing, an irregular visitor who comes to this area only in the colder months. Bohemians are slightly larger than cedar waxwings, grayer on the breast, with white and yellow in the wings. Often, the easiest way to distinguish the two

(Continued from Page D) est variety of shapes, shades and status. Traveling in the Middle East as we used to do, we could easily spot the baggy pants of Kurds, the robed Bedouin, the bearded or veiled Islamists. I am not keen enough back home to identify the origins and aspirations of the American multitudes. Dress is not a determinant for most people. It was plain, however, that I was in the minority of those who wore socks, shoes and long pants and far apart from those who were tattooed. I recall the time when air

travel was like going to a formal event: you had to wear a coat and tie. In those distant days, my mother would get dressed up just to go to the store. No more. High casual is the ruling fashion in flight. How different from when long ago we first went abroad for the State Department. We sailed in first-class on an elegant ocean-going liner. I was obliged to wear a tuxedo for dinner. (I conveniently failed to pack mine, however.) Those trips, to be sure, were at U.S. government expense in an ultimately failed effort to save the national passenger

fleet. Voyaging at someone else’s expense is perhaps is the way most first class folk these days are traveling by air — at the expense of the U.S. government or generous employers and not out of their own pockets. If so, that might mean that we can all aspire through hard work and good luck to elevation into the ranks of the first group for seating. It is the birthright of Americans to achieve upward, up and away mobility. Henry Precht is a retired Foreign Service Officer.

Nugget: Prescriptions

(Continued from Page D) titled. “An Act to Facilitate the Personal Importation of Prescription Drugs from International Mail Order Prescription Pharmacies.” This law specifies that pharmacies in Canada, the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Australia and New Zealand may now legally export

drugs to residents of Maine! It also states that as long as the pharmacy in question is licensed to operate in its own country, it can sub-contract with any source to have the order shipped to Maine. This law provides welcome relief from anxiety for those Maine Medicare beneficiaries who purchase meds from Canadian

mail order pharmacies. Stan Cohen, a Medicare volunteer counselor, is available for free, one-on-one consultations at Bridgton Hospital on Tuesdays from 8 to 11 a.m. No appointment is necessary. Alternatively, call the Southern Maine Agency on Aging (800- 427-7411) and ask for a Medicare advocate.
