NBA center comes out as gay
(NY Times) — Jason Collins, a 12-year N.B.A. veteran, has come out as the first openly gay male athlete still active in a major American team sport. “I’m a 34-year-old N.B.A. center. I’m black and I’m gay,” Collins writes in the May 6 edition of Sports Illustrated. The announcement makes Collins a pioneer of sorts: the first player in the NBA, the NFL, the NHL or Major League Baseball to come out while still pursuing his career. Other gay athletes, including the former NBA center John Amaechi, have waited until retirement to divulge their sexuality publicly. The announcement followed recent decisions by two other prominent athletes — the American soccer player Robbie Rogers and the women’s basketball player Brittney Griner — to acknowledge that they are gay. When Rogers, 25, revealed last month that he is gay he also said he was retiring from soccer. (He has since indicated he may play again.) Griner, the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft, will soon embark on her professional career. Collins, who split this season between the Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards, will become a free agent on July 1. He intends to pursue another contract in the summer, which may serve as a test for how N.B.A. teams respond to the announcement.

Trial of Pa. abortion doctor draws to a close
By Trip Gabriel THE NEW YORK TIMES
PHILADELPHIA — They are known as Baby Boy A, Baby C, Baby D and Baby E, whom prosecutors call murdered children and the defense calls aborted fetuses — the very difference in language encapsulating why anti-abortion campaigners are so passionate about drawing attention to the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, which is scheduled to wrap up here on Monday with summations by the two sides. In five weeks of testimony, jurors heard that Dr. Gosnell, 72, performed late-term
abortions by injecting a drug to stop the heart of the fetus, but when one jerked an arm, cried or drew breath outside the womb, its spinal cord was cut with surgical scissors. To anti-abortion leaders, the accounts have the power to break through decades of hardened positions in the abortion wars, not just because of the graphic details but because they raise the philosophical issue of why an abortion procedure performed in utero is legal, but a similar act a few minutes later, outside the womb, is considered homicide.
The distinction “is maybe a 15-minute or half-hour time frame and 10 inches of physical space,” said Michael Geer, the president of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, an anti-abortion group. “I think it’s going to resurrect a debate about the humanity of the unborn child.” Abortion-rights groups have a very different take-away. They say that Dr. Gosnell was a rogue practitioner, and that if abortion is further restricted, more women will be driven to clinics like his, which prosecutors called a “house of horrors.”
attacks on high-ranking Syrians targeted by insurgents in the civil war. The bombing took place in Mezze, a central district of the Syrian capital where many senior officials live, and at least one opposition account said a bodyguard had been killed. The state media reported injuries, but said the prime minister was unhurt. Video on state television showed a car’s charred skeleton and, nearby,
a bus with its windows shattered. The assault fit a pattern of attempts to attack high officials and religious figures close to President Bashar al-Assad. Less than two weeks ago, another official — Ali Balan, the government’s chief coordinator of emergency aid distribution to civilians — was killed by gunmen with silencerequipped weapons at a restaurant in the same heavily guarded neighborhood.
Syrian prime minister escapes assassination bid By Anne Barnard and Alan Cowell THE NEW YORK TIMES

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– OPINION ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Wishful thinking now runs so thick and deep across the USA that our hopes for a credible future are being drowned in a tidal wave of yellow smileyface stories recklessly issued by institutions that ought to know better. A case in point is Charles C. Mann’s tragically dumb cover story in the current Atlantic magazine, “We Will Never Run Out Of Oil,” setting out in great detail the entire panoply of technonarcissistic “solutions” to our energy predicament. Another case in point was senior financial writer Joe Nocera’s moronic op-ed in last week’s New York Times beating the drum for American “energy independence.” You could call these two examples mendacious if it weren’t so predictable that a desperate society would do everything possible to defend its sunk costs, including the making up of fairy tales to justify its wishes. Instead, they’re merely tragic because the zeitgeist now requires once-honorable forums of a free press to indulge in self-esteem building rather than truth-telling. It also represents a culmination of the political correctness disease that has terminally disabled the professional thinking class for the last three decades, since this feel-good propaganda comes from the supposedly progressive organs of the media — and, of course, the cornucopian view has been a staple of the idiot right wing media forever. We have become a nation incapable of thinking, or at least of constructing a consensus that jibes with reality. In not a very few years, the American public will be so disappointed and demoralized by broken promises like these that they will turn the nation upside down and inside out, probably with violence and bloodshed. Charles Mann’s Atlantic article begins by cheerleading for the mining of methane hydrates from the ocean floor. These are natural gas molecules trapped in ice formations in the muck around the
continental shelves. Mann spotlights the efforts of a Japanese research ship conducting tests. Guess what: the Japanese are engaging in this because they ––––– have absolutely no fossil fuels Kunstler.com of their own, and a failing consensus about nuclear power, and they are on a course to become the first advanced industrial nation to be forced to return to a medieval economy. That is, they are the most desperate among the desperate. You could say they’ve got nothing to lose (but a few billion of their rapidly depreciating Yen). Methane hydrates are stable only at extreme pressures or very low temperatures. They also exist in the arctic permafrost, for instance, Siberia, where conventional natural gas drilling operations have been carried out for decades, with no contributions from methane hydrates. Undersea methane hydrate exploration projects have gone on for decades in the U.S., Canada, India, Russia, China, and Japan. The hope is that this so-called “hot ice” would turn out to be the gas equivalent of tar sands, which would mean at best a very expensive way to get more fossil fuels as the conventional sources dry up. That hope has dimmed in nations other than extremely desperate Japan. Like a lot of techno-wonders, the recovery of methane hydrates can be demonstrated on the “science project” scale. For now, no viable technique exists for getting commercially-scaled streams of natural gas out of methane hydrates. The Japanese themselves state that it would take at least ten years, if ever, to commercially mine methane hydrates. Japan doesn’t have ten years. It’s banking system is imploding, and without capital even the science projects will come to an end. Charles Mann is equally rapturous about shale oil and gas. He writes: “Today, though, fracking is unleashing torrents of oil in North Dakota and Texas--it may create a second boom in the San Joaquin Valley — and floods
of natural gas in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio. So bright are the fracking prospects that the U.S. may become, if only briefly, the world’s top petroleum producer. (“Saudi America,” crowed The Wall Street Journal. But the parallel is inexact, because the U.S. is likely to consume most of its bonanza at home, rather than exporting it.)” This is very misleading. The U.S. consumes roughly 19 million barrels a day. The Bakken and Eagle Ford shale formations produce about a million barrels a day combined now, and guaranteed to get a whole lot lower within the next five years. Today’s near-peak production is based on furious drilling and fracking of extremely expensive wells — known as “the Red Queen syndrome” because they are running as fast as they can to keep production up. Meanwhile, the depletion curve on shale oil is a reverse “hockey stick.” The situation is similar for shale gas, the difference being that the temporary glut of 2005-2012 happened because we didn’t have the means to export surplus gas from the initial burst of development and it briefly flooded the domestic market. The price of shale gas is still below the level that makes it economic to produce and when it eventually rises to that level, and beyond, it will be too expensive for its customers to buy. Shale gas is also subject to the Red Queen Syndrome. These arguments have been well-rehearsed many times in this blog and elsewhere. But the key to understanding our energy predicament is ignored in cornucopian cases like Charles Mann’s Atlanticpiece, which is the role of capital. Non-cheap oil has already worked its hoodoo on advanced industrial economies: it has already destroyed the process of capital formation. These economies were not designed to run on non-cheap oil and they can’t, and the capital is no longer there for even the researchand-development to change out the infrastructure, let alone carry out any as-yet-undesigned changes.
When Angus King asked the voters of Maine to have him as their representative in the United States Senate, he stated that he wanted to be a voice for change. When he made his first speech on the floor of the senate, he spoke of the need for common ground and the willingness of representatives to do the hard work of making government succeed. We have arrived at a moment that requires direct and immediate action or the nation risks losing its core purpose: the creation of a society with liberty and justice for all. The current procedure in the Congress has proven to be severely dysfunctional and abundant evidence
reveals the ineffective and shameful abuse of representative government. Senator King has stated that he believes there should be changes to the filibuster rule of senate procedures. He has said that he wished One Man’s the compromise between Majority Island leader Reid and minority leader McConnell in January had gone farther. Now we have seen that compromise bring down any vote on gun control measures polled as clearly favored by a vast majority of the electorate. Filibuster has continued to block appointment of President Obama’s nominee to the Second District Court of Appeals; this court considers more cases of regulation of industry than any other court in the country. Senator Collins stated her opposition to Ms. Halligan’s nomination was based on the adequate number of judges on the panel, no vacancy needed to be filled. So presently that court operates with fewer judges than ever and President Obama has not been able to seat a single nominee on that court in five years. President Obama’s nominee to the post of Director of Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy, has not been confirmed. Filibuster has been used as a tool of obstruction more that 350 times during the Obama administration. Senator Reid even joined with the minority that kept the majority of the senate from having a debate on the issue of expanded background checks for weapon purchasers. How does one change the rules? Senator King, do you think the procedural rules of the senate need to be changed? Why is Harry Reid the Majority Leader of the Senate? What majority does he represent? How effective has he been? Why should we elect any representative who will vote in lockstep
with any faction? It seems remarkably strange that the Congress and the administration have been locked for more than two years in a debt ceiling battle and a sequestration plan with multiple deadlines and threats of financial ruin, but faced with airport delays for the travelling business class, in a matter of days a solution could be crafted, voted upon in both houses, signed by the President and enacted. If it is apparent to a common citizen who only has access to widely published accounts that lobbying efforts have protected the interests of gun manufacturers, genetic engineering experimenters, oil and gas extractors, drug company patent holders, and tax loophole enjoyers at the expense of the general public, it should be apparent to our representatives and their staffs of legislative experts. Although there are loud pronouncements of reform, in reality the regulators are toothless, underfunded and leashed. Insider trading in Congress and financial speculation at the expense of the country continue. Senator King has advocated for full disclosure of campaign contributions, what has been done on this issue? Do Maine’s representatives support the Constitutional Amendment to overturn the Citizens United v. FCC decision? Should corporations be recognized with rights of persons? The electoral and governing process is presently not working and we need to restore its civic purpose now. One year from now serious changes need to be made to the federal and state election laws, or we risk the loss of our greatest strength: democracy.

Furthermore, there is no prospect that we can rescue the process of capital formation at the scale required to continue financing things like shale oil. The absence of real growth in the USA, Europe, and Japan has already destroyed the operations of interest and repayment of debt, and any new debt issued will never be repaid, meaning it is functionally worthless (we just don’t know it yet). These impairments of capital formation have left the major commercial banks insolvent and central banks have worked tirelessly to rescue them by issuing more “money” in the form of credit that can never be paid back. What all this means is that the capital does not exist to run non-cheap oil economies, or to continue indefinitely the production of non-cheap oil and gas, not to mention methane hydrates and other fantasy fuels. Joe Nocera’s Op-Ed in last week’s NYT was shorter and even dumber (and lazier) than Charles Mann’s foolish Atlantic article. It was based on remarks made by Canada’s Energy Minister, Joe Oliver, who said (among other patently false and idiotic things) that Canada “has the resources to
meet all of America’s future needs for oil.” Oliver was pimping for the Keystone pipeline project to transport tar sands byproducts from Alberta down to the U.S. Nocera swallowed everything Oliver said whole, such as “oil mined from the sands is simply not as environmentally disastrous as opponents like to claim.” Is that
so, Joe? And what’s your source for that assertion? Canada’s Energy Minister? The slug at the bottom of Nocera’s column said he was invited onto the op-ed page because regular columnists Gail Collins and Nicholas Kristoff were off (or on book leave). Nocera’s column was disgracefully ignorant.
The editors should send him back to the Times business section where unreality is the order-of-the-day. Now, many people may draw the conclusion that some conspiracy is underway when the major mainstream media report the news so disingenuously, but that is just not so. The reason we, in effect, lie to ourselves incessantly is because of the master wish behind all the subsidiary wishes: We want to keep driving to WalMart forever and we can’t imagine any other way of life, let alone the way of life that the contraction of industrial economies is tending toward — which is to say a way, way downscaled and re-localized economic life centered on farming and artisanal manufacture. Yes, we are going medieval, too, eventually, just like the Japanese, who will get there a little sooner than we will. It’s hard to swallow, I’m sure. That’s why we prefer the more digestible propaganda gummi bear treats like Charles Mann’s Atlantic article and Joe Nocera’s stupid op ed.

People started calling, saying, ‘SWAT team, rifles pointed at the building’ STANDOFF from page 2
and cordoned off the area. The victim’s statement tipped police off that the suspect was armed, Sauschuck said. Police were given the original report of a domestic violence assault at the police department earlier that morning, he said. Todd Fournier, landlord for the building in question, said he picked up information as the day unfolded. “I was here earlier picking up some stuff, tools from my basement, as I was leaving a neighbor said, ‘Hey, the cops were here earlier looking for some people on the second floor, and I said, ‘I don’t know anything about it, let me give them a call and see what’s up.’” He didn’t get an immediate response, Fournier said, but friends contacted
him, letting him know a tense scene was playing out near the Midtown Policing Center. “I used to live in the neighborhood, so I know a bunch of people. People started calling, saying, ‘SWAT team, rifles pointed at the building, yada yada yada.’ Basically I just came back and started getting bits and pieces of information,” Fournier recalled. The suspect was an acquaintance of tenants who were in the process of moving out, Fournier said. A couple of women were in the apartment with him, and he threatened them with a firearm, prompting them to flee to the police, he said. “That essentially brought all this down to bear on him,” Fournier said. The suspect reportedly was in contact with an acquaintance on the telephone,

and the suspect told this individual, “I didn’t even know they were out there,’” referring to the police. Fournier said initially he feared his tenants might be hostages but learned they were not on premises. “My tenants are not involved in any way, shape or form,” he said. “My tenants are moving out, they have a place in Windham, they are in the process of moving right now. My guess, my assumption is this guy, this acquaintance made his way in there because he’s their acquaintance and probably had a little more elbow room than he normally would have,” Fournier said. Police said Upton was charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, terrorizing, assault, and causing a police standoff.

Concert at the St. Lawrence taps into burgeoning Celtic music scene By Timothy Gillis
SPECIAL TO THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN
Portland’s St. Lawrence Arts Center is in the midst of a Celtic music revival, offering several shows over many months to a diverse audience of older aficionados and neophyte fans. Phill McIntyre, director and owner of Skye Theatre and Performing Arts Center in South Carthage, organized the Celtic Roots Series as part of an ongoing engagement in Maine and New Hampshire with artists who are touring from the Maritime Provinces, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. “We have bluegrass, American folk, and Celtic music, all within the genre of roots music,” McIntyre said. “I started out presenting a few concerts a year at a music room that I had built. It has evolved into a full-blown performing arts center in Franklin County. Nine years later, I have had 224 events.” Today, Mary Jane Lamond and Wendy MacIssac, of Nova Scotia, will perform at St. Lawrence, offering up songs from their new CD, which is in the top 10 for roots and traditional music in the U.S. and Canada. McIntyre partners with music and theater venues to help them provide programming that is top quality. “What we do is take the hardest part of the week for performers and do midweek performances. This frees the artist up to perform at the major arts centers
on the weekends,” he said. “I work with many festivals throughout the region, like the Saltwater Celtic Festival in Brunswick and the Maine Celtic Celebration in Belfast. I’ve worked with the American Folk Festival in the past, providing promotional tours with artists who are performing at these festivals.” He is starting a new festival with a group in western Maine. It’s called the Crossroad International Celtic Festival, and will run Sept. 11 to 15 in Franklin and Oxford counties. “It’s totally unique from anything taking place in Maine now,” McIntyre said of the decentralized model, with several locations featuring 18 to 20 concerts in the five days. “I’ve been working with local venues, church and community halls, Huts and Trails,” he said. “People will hike into a hut for the concert.” Also on tap will be a period concert, post Civil War, at the Norlands Living History Center, a “shaped notes concert,” popular since the 1840s. “I have been presenting for several years in the Lewiston/Auburn area, the Waterville area, but have had very few shows in the Portland area,” McIntyre said. “A lot of our customers travel a great distance to come to these shows. We were looking for a really good, intimate venue to host some Celtic music in the Portland area.” see CELTIC page 13

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mountain-goat side will be activated. Just because you don’t reach the highest peak today doesn’t mean your climb was in vain. The altitude you achieve now will help you with tomorrow’s climb. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People show and interpret affection differently. What you recognize as genuine caring might not register with another person. Through trial and error, you’ll figure out how best to communicate your love. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you think of a certain person, conflicting emotions arise. To hold these tumultuous feelings inside takes complexity, intelligence and a deep soul. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 30). You are talented and powerful. Honor your many gifts by paying attention to those who do the work you don’t have to do. The efforts of outsiders allow you to grow and master your craft. By giving your loved ones what they need, you ensure your happy existence. Invest in a September vacation. Your love signs are Leo and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 8, 5, 6 and 9.
by Paul Gilligan
ARIES (March 21-April 19). In those moments when your attention goes to problems (or problem people), you are ignoring successes (or helpful people). Progress will occur faster when you focus on what’s right in your world. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Greater selfcontrol will be necessary in order to navigate today’s many temptations. The saving grace is that if you muster up the willpower, you’ll immediately be rewarded. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Yes, your responsibilities are many. But you don’t have to handle everything at once. Ordering your tasks by priority, size and timing will help you stave off negative thoughts and avoid feeling overwhelmed. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you ask people to do things that do not come naturally to them, the process will be a struggle for both of you. Observe the strengths of others, and align your requests accordingly. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don’t underestimate how deeply people might fall in love with you. Your strange power over heartstrings is nothing to toy around with. It won’t be fun to be loved much more than you love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just because something is legal doesn’t mean it’s moral, and neither are all illegal acts immoral. Use your judgment and heed your conscience, as well as your gut feelings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll roll with what happens, not letting any single event deter you from your purpose. At the same time, you realize that it is more important to keep moving along than it is to arrive at any one destination. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Most vengeance is small-minded and shows a lack of character. Noble people are also merciful people. If there are exceptions to the rule, they are few and far between. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your natural passion sometimes presents itself in the form of anger. You can avoid getting angry, though, by removing yourself from situations that have the potential to make you blow your stack.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, April 30, the 120th day of 2013. There are 245 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 30, 1973, President Richard Nixon announced the resignations of top aides H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, Attorney General Richard G. Kleindienst and White House counsel John Dean, who was actually fired. On this date: In 1789, George Washington took office in New York as the first president of the United States. In 1803, the United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France for 60 million francs, the equivalent of about $15 million. In 1812, Louisiana became the 18th state of the Union. In 1863, the design of the Great Seal of the Confederate States of America was approved by the Confederate Congress. In 1900, engineer John Luther “Casey” Jones of the Illinois Central Railroad died in a train wreck near Vaughan, Miss., after staying at the controls in a successful effort to save the passengers. In 1938, a precursor to the cartoon character Bugs Bunny first appeared in the Warner Bros. animated short “Porky’s Hare Hunt.” In 1939, the New York World’s Fair officially opened with a ceremony that included an address by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1945, as Russian troops approached his Berlin bunker, Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife of one day, Eva Braun. In 1968, New York City police forcibly removed student demonstrators occupying five buildings at Columbia University. In 1983, blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters died in Westmont, Ill., at age 68. In 1988, Gen. Manuel Noriega, waving a machete, vowed at a rally to keep fighting U.S. efforts to oust him as Panama’s military ruler. In 1993, top-ranked women’s tennis player Monica Seles was stabbed in the back during a match in Hamburg, Germany, by a man who described himself as a fan of second-ranked German player Steffi Graf. (The man, convicted of causing grievous bodily harm, was given a suspended sentence.) Ten years ago: International mediators presented Israeli and Palestinian leaders with a new Middle East “road map,” a U.S.-backed blueprint for ending 31 months of violence and establishing a Palestinian state. Mahmoud Abbas (mahkMOOD’ ah-BAHS’) took office as Palestinian prime minister. The U.S. Navy withdrew from its disputed Vieques bombing range in Puerto Rico, prompting celebrations by islanders. Five years ago: The Federal Reserve cut interest rates for a seventh straight time, reducing the federal funds rate a quarter-point to 2 percent. An avalanche in Italy’s northwestern Alps killed five French ski-mountaineers. One year ago: President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, meeting at the White House, decried aggressive acts from North Korea, including a recent failed rocket launch, and vowed to maintain a unified front against such provocations. A ferry carrying more than 300 people capsized in a river in northeast India, killing some 100 people and leaving about as many missing.

Dear Annie: My boyfriend, “Jarrod,” has always been very anxious about social situations and has a hard time making friends. Since graduating from high school, he’s lost touch with the few people he considered friends and has become very isolated. Together with the stress of passing his college courses, he has spiraled into a serious depression. Jarrod constantly laments that he has no friends and that his family only wants him to get a job and move out. (They recently staged an intervention and referred to him as a “failure to launch.”) He thinks no one besides me would care if anything happened to him. He often states that he wishes everything would just end. I want Jarrod to see a doctor and get help, but he says the idea of talking to someone about his problems scares him and stresses him out even more. He’s convinced no one can help him. He thinks antidepressants would make him feel worse. When I suggest that a better sleep schedule, healthier eating habits and more exercise could help, he says he doesn’t care enough to try. How do I help him find the motivation to get the help he needs? I love him and am terrified that he’s just given up on life. -- Worried in the Mountains Dear Worried: Jarrod is depressed, but his unwillingness to get help prevents him from getting better and has become a burden on you. First, please understand that you are not responsible for his mental health, and you cannot help him without his cooperation. Tell him that one little step could make all the difference, and suggest he speak to a counselor at the college. Offer to go with him. You can notify the counseling office about Jarrod’s depression and ask them to check on him. We also recommend The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (dbsalliance.org). Dear Annie: My wife and I frequently drive her 80-some-

thing parents around. Here is the problem: From the time my father-in-law gets in the car until we reach our destination, he sings, whistles and hums. This grates on me like fingernails on a blackboard. I have tried turning up the radio, but he just increases his volume. I attempt conversation, but he only stops singing long enough to answer my question and then immediately resumes his serenade. I know if I were to ask him to stop, it would be the beginning of World War III. He has a bad temper and a short fuse. I get along with him fine otherwise, but I find this incredibly rude and increasingly unbearable. I try to avoid driving them, but our proximity and common gatherings make it hard. My wife seems oblivious. She has been subjected to this all her life. No one has ever had the gumption to poke this wasp nest with a stick. What can I do? -- Want Duct Tape Dear Want: You could try singing along at the top of your lungs. But really, we don’t think Dad does this deliberately to annoy you. It sounds like an ingrained habit. Either tolerate it, drive separate cars or ask your wife to drive while you listen to something else through a set of headphones. Dear Annie: If “Technically Impaired in New York” wishes to learn how to text, great, but she shouldn’t feel obligated to invest in this extra feature or spend time learning how to do it. My extremely techie children took the time to write oldfashioned postcards and handwritten letters to their grandmother, who greatly appreciated their consideration. I taught them that they should be deferring to her needs rather than the other way around. This important relationship of respect and special care has been remembered with great fondness since she passed away in 2011. -- Soon-to-Be Grandmother

Albert Brenner Glickman PORTLAND — Albert Brenner Glickman, family man, philanthropist and business genius, died peacefully on April 27, 2013. Born in Portland, Al was raised by his widowed mother Mildred Brenner. Millie later married Joe Glickman and the family moved to California. Al’s greatest love was his wife Judy. They met at UCLA where Al was close friends with her brother Richard. Al skillfully wooed her away from all other suitors. Al and Judy were partners in life, family, travel, and tennis. They were married for 54 years of romance and laughter, loyalty and love. He is missed by a large and loving family: children, Jeff (Mindy), Tigraw, David (Paige), and Brenner (Elaine); grandchildren Seth, Evan, Hanna, Naomi, Micah, Ilana, Tal, Gurion, Bronte, Anna, Natalia, Ellis, Riley, Gavin, Zander, Mo, Leo, and Eden; brother Bob; and loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
Al eschewed the practice of law to become a real estate broker. Soon he established his own company pioneering the community shopping center. He built islands of retail in towns throughout California and the West. The idea and the company flourished. Al had a great zeal for life. He enjoyed traveling the world, sunset cruising on his boat L’Chaim and skiing from the top of the mountain to the bottom without stopping. Through extraordinary charm and chutzpah, Al convinced the staff at Aspen Mountain to allow him to ride up the gondola each morning before the mountain opened. For years, he and four friends would enjoy the first tracks down the mountain. Wherever he lived, Al was always surrounded by friends. His magnetism was contagious while family and friends flocked to his side. Because of his sincerity, caring and insights, many, many people considered Al their best friend.
McIntyre hopes to expand series CELTIC from page 9
McIntyre had been working with Andrew Harris at the Portland Stage Company who introduced him to the folks at St. Lawrence. “It looks like a good fit,” McIntyre said. “A great space, the acoustics are good.” He likes to use the time prior to a show to warm the audience up, with jam sessions or storytelling. “Part of my philosophy is I want the community to take ownership of the show,” he said. With a background as an auctioneer, McIntyre brought to the music community an ability to network and work together.
“As a result, venues are not looking at each other as competition. We’re all in the same business. What’s good for one is good for all. If we spend more time strengthening each other, it would be far better for the marketplace,” he said. “It’s been an interesting journey for me. I hope to do well in the Portland market, and work with other places like Portland Stage and One Longfellow Square.” The Celtic Roots Series at the St. Lawrence Arts Center April 30 — Mary Jane Lamond & Wendy MacIsaac May 15 — The Fretless June 4 — Buddy MacDonald and Rachel Davis www.stlawrencearts.org

Fire training at Portland International Jetport
11 a.m. The Portland Fire Department’s Air Rescue and Firefighting Division will conduct a training exercise during which firefighters will respond to a fire onboard an airplane at the Portland International Jetport. “The training exercise required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) annually for first responders involves a live burn using a mock passenger section of an airplane. Firefighters will need to establish a rescue path, enter the burning plane, rescue occupants and extinguish the fire. The media availability will provide members of the press an opportunity to witness the emergency response to a burning plane firsthand. ... This year, the Portland International Jetport will host the training, which allows for other municipalities to participate including the Brunswick Fire Department, Bar Harbor Airport, South Portland Fire Department and Scarborough Fire Department. Hosting the event is not only cost effective as it reduces staff and travel expenses, but also helps facilitate better coordination between Maine municipalities who respond to airport emergencies including surrounding communities who through mutual aid support the Portland Fire Department. Previously, the Portland Fire Department traveled to the New Hampshire Fire Academy at nearly twice the cost.” Portland International Jetport, media observation area on Aviation Boulevard near the intersection of Westbrook Street.
