YouTube planning a subscription option
(NY Times) — YouTube this week will announce a plan to let some video makers charge a monthly subscription, according to people with knowledge of the plan. The overwhelming majority of videos on YouTube, a unit of Google, will remain free to all, but the plan will let the company’s partners try out a second source of revenue, analogous to the flexible pay walls that some newspapers and magazines have adopted. There will be subscription channels for children’s programming, entertainment, music and many other topic areas, according to the people with knowledge of the plan, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they had been asked by YouTube not to comment publicly yet. Some channels will cost as little as $1.99 a month. These won’t be channels in the television sense of the term; rather, they will consist of libraries of videos on demand, much like the thousands of free channels already on YouTube. Some of the video makers who have worked with YouTube on the subscription option want to convert existing fans to paying customers; others hope to distinguish themselves by selling archives of old TV episodes. Some of the partners planned to start promoting their channels on Thursday, though the announcements could come sooner, in light of recent press coverage. The Financial Times reported on Sunday that the announcements were expected as early as this week. A YouTube spokesman declined to comment on the specifics of the subscription plan. In a statement the company said, “We have nothing to announce at this time, but we’re looking into creating a subscription platform that could bring even more great content to YouTube for our users to enjoy and provide our partners with another vehicle to generate revenue from their content, beyond the rental and ad-supported models we offer.”

Tsarnaev’s body ready for burial. But where? BOSTON (NY Times) — As the body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, lay in a Worcester, Mass., funeral home for a fourth day, Gov. Deval Patrick said Monday that it was up to the family, not the state, to resolve where the burial would take place. “First of all, this isn’t a state or a federal issue — it’s the family’s issue,” he told reporters in New Bedford, Mass. “And the family has some options. I assume they will
make a decision soon. I hope they do.” Patrick declined to answer when asked if he would oppose Tsarnaev’s burial in Massachusetts. But Representative Edward J. Markey, the Democratic candidate for the Senate seat that John Kerry vacated when he became secretary of state, said he would oppose such a burial. “I think that the body should be controlled by the federal government,” Markey said. “But if the people of Massachusetts do
not want that terrorist to be buried on our soil, then it should not be.” No cemetery has offered space for Tsarnaev, who with his younger brother has been accused of planning and carrying out the bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others on April 15. His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, has been charged with the bombings and is being held in a federal medical detention facility outside Boston.
Cabinet pick’s finances may foreshadow battle WASHINGTON (NY Times) — In November 2008, as President-elect Barack Obama began putting together his cabinet, reports emerged that he was considering nominating Penny Pritzker, the billionaire Hyatt Hotels heiress and businesswoman who had served as his chief campaign fund-raiser, as commerce secretary. But faced with awkward questions about her financial dealings,
she declared that she did not want the nomination. Last week, however, on Pritzker’s 54th birthday, she stood beside Obama as he announced her nomination for that same position, investing his administration’s political capital in trying to get her confirmed amid a far more toxic political atmosphere than he faced at the start of his first term.
“For your birthday present, you get to go through confirmation,” Obama joked. Republican senators are likely to be interested in the Pritzker family’s reputation as innovators in the use of offshore trusts and foreign bank secrecy laws to shelter their wealth from income, capital gains and inheritance taxes. Even after tax code loopholes were closed, the family’s trusts
were grandfathered in and it kept benefiting from them. Indeed, Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa, has called for scrutiny of her family’s trusts, saying she was “associated with the kind of tax avoidance activity that the president dismisses as fat cat shenanigans for others. It’s hypocritical to overlook tax avoidance when it’s convenient.”
Israeli attacks on Syria fuel Workers claim racial bias in debate over U.S.-led effort farms’ hiring of immigrants WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The apparent ease with which Israel struck missile sites and, by Syrian accounts, a major military research center near Damascus in recent days has stoked debate in Washington about whether American-led airstrikes are the logical next step to cripple President Bashar al-Assad’s ability to counter the rebel forces or use chemical weapons. That option was already being debated in secret by the United

States, Britain and France in the days leading to the Israeli strikes, according to American and foreign officials involved in the discussions. On Sunday, Senator John McCain, who has long advocated a much deeper American role in the Syrian civil war, argued that the Israeli attacks, at least one of which appears to have been launched from outside Syrian airspace, weakens the argument that Syria’s air defense system would be a major challenge.
VIDALIA, Ga. (NY Times) — For years, labor unions and immigrant rights activists have accused large-scale farmers, like those harvesting sweet Vidalia onions here this month, of exploiting Mexican guest workers. Working for hours on end under a punishing sun, the pickers are said to be crowded into squalid camps, driven without a break and even cheated of wages. But as Congress weighs immigration legislation expected to expand the guest worker program, another group is increasingly crying foul — Americans, mostly black, who live near the farms and say they want the field work but can’t get it because it is going to Mexicans. They contend that they are illegally discouraged from applying for work and treated shabbily by farmers who prefer the foreigners for their malleability.

The deep end of the risk pool Where on earth did Paul Krugman get the idea — expressed Monday morning — that ours is “a weak economy?” The Dow Jones Industrial Average is about to scale previously uncharted heights and the Standard & Poors Index is piling onto its molehill, too. If stocks are up the economy can’t be weak since stock markets = the economy. All the efforts of the Gitchi Manitou behind the operations of money, the Federal Reserve, are bent toward inflating the stock markets, including now the novelty of outright strategic stock purchases, so these stock markets must hold the secrets of economic life. Notice, the Federal Reserve ––––– is not inflating the precious Kunstler.com metal markets.

Harbinger or outlier?
Today the eyes of the political world focus on a special election in a deep red congressional district of a deep red state. A new coming Democrat, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, (wait for it) sister of popular television satirist Stephen Colbert, is leading in post primary polls over Mark Sanford, Republican nominee and former Governor of South Carolina who left office after a very public scandal involving an Argentine mistress and lies about his whereabouts while Governor of the state. The special election fills the house of representatives seat vacated by an appointment to the US Senate seat vacated by Jim DeMint. This election is being followed as the first indication of the 2014 election cycle, but it is a particularly inexact example of the will of the people and the direction of the electorate. Sanford is so famously distasteful to social conservatives that the Republican National Committee has withdrawn support for him. More important is the line up of campaign contributions around this one district election that can not change the majority status in the House of Representatives and must immediately start fundraising for the next election cycle. The recent spate of incumbents announcing their intent to not seek reelection makes the next election of 2014 crucial to the outcome of the Obama presidency. In the current arena of two-party politics
Robert Libby –––––
One Man’s Island affected by the gerrymandered districts after the 2010 census, the Republican social conservative right wing aided by fiscal conservative Tea Party tax bashers, isolationists, and Second Amendment Absolutists will doom moderate compromise in Congress. In less than a year and in the span of one upcoming legislative session in most states, reforms must be proposed and debated and enacted to reform the electoral process in this country. The first most important and achievable goal is full disclosure of sources of funds used to influence elections. There is a commendable movement to clarify the Constitution stating that anonymous political contributions are unacceptable and corporations do not possess “personhood.” The average length of time to add amending constitutional language is less than fourteen months. The 26th amendment took less than 10 months to enact passage. There is a current resolution in the Maine legislature to support such a measure. States set rules for primary elections; a single primary for all eligible candidates to conduct public
appeals to voters is most democratic and involves more voters in the earliest stage of the democratic process. A proven approach is the “Top Two” primary run in California. All candidates may solicit support and enter the primary; the top two finishers meet in a general election run off. Candidates appealing to a small but vocal group must win the support of a large portion of the primary electorate or face elimination. This saves the state election process funds and reduces the influence of partisan bosses. Last, citizens must take the time to petition their representatives and express their dissatisfaction with the status quo performance of our government. It is remarkably easy to contact your representatives and ask questions about votes on specific pieces of legislation and more specifically rule making. Consider the Congressional Reform Act of 2013; simply put it amends the Constitution to say Congress shall pass no law that treats members of Congress differently than the other citizens of the United States. I urge all citizens to demand more from your government. Make it government “of the people, by the people, for the people.” No pensions for elected service.

When the fundamentals are whatever you say they are KUNSTLER from page 4
the public, increasingly befuddled by the absence of yield, the mis-pricing of risk, and the antics of Larry Kudlow, would just let go of its delusion that yellow and white metals had any intrinsic value — after all, you can’t eat them, can you? The weight of opinion is also against gold and silver. The redoubtable Martin Armstrong is even inveighing against them because, as he put it, these things trade only on the technicals, not fundamentals. This does raise a sticky question or two, of course, such as, what if the technicals are detached from the fundamentals, which is to say that the numbers and charts don’t jibe with reality? That may be possible, after all, when everything from interest rates to asset purchases are rigged and accounting fraud is the orderof-the-day in government and its larger-than-life handmaiden banks. Consider, for instance, that if our national government under Obama has continued the practical policies of the Bush II regime — wars, Gitmo, non-regulation and non-enforcement, wealth confiscation (and reassignment) — than it may have also continued the underlying principle that “we make our own reality.” In which case, the fundamentals are whatever you say they are and the technicals are just traffic lights on the freeway of “liquidity.” That perhaps explains why stock markets rise on both good and bad news. If a few more spec houses are being built in Las Vegas and Phoenix (where, I’m sure, they’re needed) then the stock markets go up. If a low manufacturers’ index comes out, well, then that’s fine, too, because the Federal Reserve puts up a smoke signal that it might increase its monthly bondbuying beyond the current $85 billion a month — meaning more liquidity to juice the stock markets, so up-upand-away they go up. The stock markets apparently rocked on last week’s
news that about 175,000 more car wash attendants were added to the work force, because that’s where the money is these days. If I were Warren Buffet or Jamie Dimon, I would consider part-time work in a car wash to plump up the family fortune. Consider, though, that when everything is mis-priced then nobody knows the value of anything, and when nobody knows anything and everyone is flying blind, then accidents can happen. Welcome to the deep end of the risk pool. Count Paul Krugman of The New York Times among those who don’t know anything and as you do that, consider also that societies get what they deserve, not what they expect. What Paul Krugman doesn’t know (because he never mentions it), for example, is that oil prices around $100 a barrel (the average between West Texas Intermediate and Brent Crude) crush industrial economies. That implacable downdraft is what motivates USGov.com and the Fed to intervene and manipulate the things that represent economic activity: currencies, asset values, interest rates, and markets, which in turn promotes the detachment of the technicals from fundamentals. Anyone actually paying attention to the weak signals coming through all the noise would hear the faint wail of desperation in the background. These financial metaphysics are apart from conditions on-the-ground all over the foundering empire, namely, an infrastructure for daily life that becomes more onerous and obsolete every day. When historians of the future swap their stories around the campfire, this age will be remembered for little more than all the useless movement of automobiles and the fate of the crumbling surfaces they moved about on. Not even Paul Krugman is capable of noticing how we live, and what it means. Well, spring has finally arrived in the bony northeast USA and I am
preoccupied with cultivating my own garden. In honor of our heritage I planted two American chestnuts. The species was nearly put out of business in the first stirrings of the global economy, when previously unknown plant diseases arrived here with shipments of foreign botanicals. Now that the global economy is imploding, it is
a favorable time to get with the older program, in which the technicals reflect the fundamentals. (James Howard Kunstler is the author of several books, including “The Long Emergency,” “The Geography of Nowhere” and “The Witch of Hebron.” Contact him by emailing jhkunstler@ mac.com.)

Story of attack on costumed comic book fan goes viral By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN
A celebration of comic books took a darker turn Saturday when a suspect assaulted one of the costumed fans gathered outside of Coast City Comics during Free Comic Book Day. Adam Barnes, 31, of Westbrook was arrested and charged with assault, criminal threatening, disorderly conduct and refusing to submit to arrest, officials said. He was bailed out of jail on $1,500 bail, county officials said. The victim, a 45-year-old man, was standing on the sidewalk out front of Coast City Comics, 634 Congress St., and dressed in a Stormtrooper costume from the “Star Wars” movie series, according to Portland Police Sgt. Dean Goodale. Around 2:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to the area of the Barnes comic book store for an assault. The victim, according to Tristan Gallagher of Coast City Comics, first was struck so his helmet came off. Then, he took a punch in the attack, he said. “It was a totally random thing, it was a 100 percent random assault,” Gallagher said. Goodale said the assailant seized the victim and dragged him to the sidewalk. “A man came up to him and grabbed him in a headlock and put him on the ground and began punching him in the head. Some people stepped in and stopped the assault and called the police and followed the male, and actually pointed the male suspect out,” he said. The vicim had minor injuries and did not require transport to the hospital, Goodale added. Barnes was pointed out and arrested at 209 State St., Goodale said. Resisting arrest, Barnes was subdued through the use of a Taser, Goodale said. Police had received calls from other businesses in the area about a disorderly male, he said. The incident quickly became Facebook fodder and created a media sensation. Some accounts described two costumed victims, but reports of a second person dressed as a Ghostbuster getting assaulted
Portland police to conduct ‘Active Shooting’ training today at terminal Daily Sun Staff Report
At noon today at the Portland Ocean Terminal, the Portland Police Department will conclude its “Active Shooting” training for officers, with “interactive scenarios” along the Maine State Pier, the city reported in a press release. For the past three months, every officer within the department has participated in the 15-hour long training program in an effort to better prepare for a possible active shooter situation, the city reported. The training funded by a Federal Emergency Management Agency Port Security Grant includes 10 hours of hostage and shooter situations during which officers will breach a building, navigate smoke-filled rooms to isolate the shooter and rescue potential victims. The scenarios use simulated firearms and “create a dynamic real-life experience for the participants,” a city press release noted. The training was developed using historic events and the latest tactics and techniques available to respond to an active shooter emergency. Last year, six officers participated in a FEMA-led train-the-trainer program for active shooting situations and as a result, the department is now able to host these types of training programs, the city reported.
remained unconfirmed, Gallagher said. Still, the story spread across the Internet, and Gallagher reported fielding a flurry of media calls. “It’s gone viral and it’s all over Drudge Report and Huffington Post and all this other stuff that kind of blows my mind,” he said Monday. Gallagher credited the victim of the assault with rallying from the experience and keeping a sense of humor. “The poor guy he took a pretty bad hit, he walked it off,” he said.
Falmouth man charged in murder Maine State Police charged a Falmouth man with murder in connection with the shooting death of his mother at their home on Edgewater Drive late Friday afternoon. Andrew Leighton, 44, was charged early Saturday morning following his release from Maine Medical Center where he was taken for an evaluation, the Maine Department of Public Safety reported. Leighton was taken into custody about 11 p.m. Friday after he surrendered to police following a standoff at the house, which he shared with his parents, police said. The body of his 68-year-old mother — Shirley Leighton — was found in the living room, the Leighton state reported. The shooting was reported to police by 71-year-old Thomas Leighton who discovered the violence after returning home from walking his dog in the neighborhood Friday afternoon, police said.
Child passenger safety fitting planned The South Portland Police Department has partnered with Safe Kids Maine for educating the public with child passenger safety, the department reported.

A City Council-created task force on Monday endorsed a proposed ordinance that would ban polystyrene containers in Portland. The Polystyrene and Green Packaging Task Force voted 9-6 to send the proposed polystyrene prohibition to the Transportation Sustainability and Energy Committee. The ban would prohibit vendors from selling or serving food in polystyrene containers and the retail sale of the material. The six members of the group who voted against the ordinance will draft a dissenting opinion to accompany endorsement. The proposed ordinance endorsed by the task force would prohibit a retail food vendor from serving or selling prepared food on polystyrene service ware; not allow food packagers who offer products for retail sale to use the material; and keep the city and groups doing work with the city from using polystyrene food containers. The ordinance allows for prepackaged foods in polystrene containers to be sold. The ordinance includes exemptions based on undue hardship and in the incident of an emergency situation. The draft language states that the ban, if enacted, will take effect in July 2015. During the group’s discussion on the ordinance, the task force amended the language to include provision for a recycling program exemption, and a preemption clause. Matt Fisher, who represents Dart Container Corporation, proposed the two amendments. He said the exemption would mean that if the city found
an effective polystyrene recycling program, the ban would become null and void; the language was taken from Freeport’s ordinance. “It’s a very simple concept,” he said. Fisher’s second amendment would nullify the Portland ban if comparable statewide legislation was approved. If the state passes, and later rescinds, a polystyrene ban, Portland’s ordinance would once again take effect. The proposed ordinance will now go to the Transportation Sustainability and Energy Committee for review, likely in June, before being presented to the full City Council. With its work on the polystyrene ban finished, the task force will now explore the issue of minimizing waste that’s created by plastic bags. City Councilor Ed Suslovic said they can explore any option they see fit whether that’s a ban, fees, a deposit system or education. He said there are a lot of people who want to cut down on the number of plastic bags that show up where they aren’t supposed to be, like in the street, in the water and in the sewer system. “I see evidence of a problem everywhere,” he said. To kick off the plastic bag discussion, the committee heard from Casco Bay High School freshman Josh Dow, who talked about his project on reducing the waste from the bags. Dow said he developed a proposal to create incentives for recycling plastic bags by having a deposit system, much like what’s used for bottles and cans. He said he looked at other options, including a ban and using bogs that are made using vegetable oil, making them 92 percent biodegradable. Dow said a plastic bag takes 1,000 years to biodegrade. “It is a monumental problem,” he said.

city reported. Police now believe that Morris was walking the railroad tracks with a friend when he jumped aboard one of the railroad cars and began riding the train, the city reported. At some point Morris fell from the moving train and was run over by it, officials said. One leg was severed at the knee and the other seriously injured, but Morris is expected to survive, according to a city press release. The freight train had stopped as part of a regular schedule to allow the Amtrak Downeaster to pass, the city reported. Neighbors in the Harris Avenue neighborhood heard Morris’ screams and called police at approximately 6:20 p.m. Sunday, the city press release stated. Sgt. Michael Rand was first to arrive and found residents treating Morris. Sgt. Rand applied a tourniquet to control bleeding until paramedics and firefighters arrived. Sgt. Rand is a medically trained officer (EMT) as well as a member of the Special Reaction Team, who carries a tourniquet kit with him while on duty, and it’s believed that the quick action of Sgt. Rand and other first responders saved Morris’ life, the city reported. Portland police are assisting Railroad Police in the investigation. Investigators are trying to determine if alcohol consumption by the victim played a role in the accident, the city reported. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact Portland Police at 874-8533. The city of Portland is reminding residents of the appropriate steps they should take to ensure that they are safe and alert to approaching trains. Approximately every three hours, either a vehicle or pedestrian is struck by a train, the city reported. Last year, more than 400 people lost their lives and nearly 50 people suffered injuries while trespassing on private railroad right-of-way property.

Pirates fall in OT to end playoff run
Portland Pirates goalie Chad Johnson made 41 saves in almost 80 minutes of play, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Syracuse Crunch who scored with 17 seconds left in overtime to knock the Pirates out of the playoffs on Thursday night in their Eastern Quarterfinals Series. The Crunch won the game 4-3 and the series 3-0. Portland’s Chad Johnson made some key saves, keeping the season alive for Portland. But the Pirates were outshot 15-4 in the overtime period, and 45-18 total for the game. With just 16.2 seconds left in the overtime period, Ondrej Palat struck, picking up a loose rebound to end the Pirates’ season, and give the Crunch a 4-3 victory and series sweep.

and cooperation. It’s easy to be generous when you know you’re going to win. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You do your most brilliant work when you lose your awareness of how you’re coming off, the time and all possible gains that could come of a project. Lose yourself, and you gain everything. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A female figure will be important to the action. She will encourage you in just the right way and/or gently hold you accountable for what you wanted to accomplish. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Unusual circumstances could inspire you to behave in a way that is not typical of you. The response you get will be most enlightening, and there’s something concrete to gain from what you learn. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 7). This month you will meet someone new, immediately like that person and spark an epic relationship. Success in June depends on your ability to observe well and correctly analyze what you see. Actively seek mentorship. July is your chance to do a different kind of work. Home or transportation upgrades happen in August. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 44, 48 and 19.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can’t control what other people want, and it usually isn’t about you, anyway. You’re on a mission to find a good fit. Mutual benefits are the only benefits that interest you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You see only your half of a relationship. You’ll never know exactly what the other person thinks and feels. It is likely that what is demonstrated is only the tip of the iceberg. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your playfulness knows no bounds today. You’ll see most of your interactions as opportunities to spread warmth and silliness. Forging lighthearted connections is a noble pursuit. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The beautiful part about living honestly is that questions won’t scare you. You’ll get some odd questions today, and you’ll feel perfectly comfortable expressing who you are. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your life will be touched by an element of mystery and glamour. You’re smart, and you’ll figure out the illusion involved, but you’re also fun, so you’ll take your sweet time, enjoying the ruse. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your emotional life gets a boost with today’s close encounter. This could be about making new friends, allowing yourself to be influenced or experiencing the rush that comes with new love. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those who work for praise or the ego rush that comes from extra attention won’t be able to sustain a consistent workflow. Seek partners who use work as a means to learn, improve and share. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Wellmeaning friends will give crummy advice. Just because someone is close to you doesn’t make him or her an expert on your life. It’s better to ask the real experts about the issues that affect you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though you’re in the midst of a competition, it will benefit you to tone down the level of aggression and cultivate a spirit of harmony

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, May 7, the 127th day of 2013. There are 238 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 7, 1763, Pontiac, chief of the Ottawa Indians, attempted to lead a sneak attack on British-held Fort Detroit, but was foiled because the British had been tipped off in advance. (The Ottawa Indians and other tribes then launched an all-out war with the British that came to be known as Pontiac’s War.) On this date: In 1789, the first inaugural ball was held in New York in honor of President George Washington and his wife, Martha. In 1824, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, had its premiere in Vienna. In 1825, composer Antonio Salieri died in Vienna, Austria. In 1833, composer Johannes Brahms was born in Hamburg, Germany. In 1840, composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky was born in Votkinsk, Russia. In 1915, nearly 1,200 people died when a German torpedo sank the British liner RMS Lusitania off the Irish coast. In 1942, U.S. Army Gen. Jonathan Wainwright went on a Manila radio station to announce the Allied surrender of the Philippines to Japanese forces during World War II. In 1945, Germany signed an unconditional surrender at Allied headquarters in Rheims (rams), France, ending its role in World War II. In 1954, the 55-day Battle of Dien Bien Phu in Vietnam ended with Vietnamese insurgents overrunning French forces. In 1963, the United States launched the Telstar 2 communications satellite. In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford formally declared an end to the “Vietnam era.” In Ho Chi Minh City — formerly Saigon — the Viet Cong celebrated its takeover. In 1992, the latest addition to America’s space shuttle fleet, Endeavour, went on its first flight. A 203-year-old proposed constitutional amendment barring Congress from giving itself a midterm pay raise received enough votes for ratification as Michigan became the 38th state to approve it. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush ordered the lifting of sanctions against Iraq, and called on members of the U.N. Security Council to do the same. The White House announced President Bush had chosen New Mexico oilman Colin R. McMillan to be secretary of the Navy and Air Force Secretary James Roche to replace the dismissed secretary of the Army, Thomas White. (However, McMillan died in an apparent suicide in July 2003, while Roche’s nomination languished in Congress before being withdrawn in March 2004.) Five years ago: President George W. Bush, addressing the Council of Americas, said Cuba’s post-Fidel Castro leadership had made only “empty gestures at reform” as he rejected calls for easing U.S. restrictions on the communist island. Dmitry Medvedev was sworn in as Russia’s president. One year ago: Education Secretary Arne Duncan broke ranks with the White House, stating his unequivocal support for same-sex marriage one day after Vice President Joe Biden suggested on NBC that he supported gay marriage as well.

Dear Annie: My husband works at a private college. His male boss had an affair with one of the female directors under him. My husband and his assistant found out about it and, after much deliberation, brought it to the attention of the human resources department. The president of the college was informed, but he only put the two guilty parties on suspension for two weeks. My husband and his assistant still have to work for this man. He constantly undermines them, and it is obvious that there is no future for my husband at this college. The affair is still going on, and my husband has told no one else. The spouses are in the dark, too. My husband has only worked for this college for a few years. Until this affair, he loved his job and did it well. Our daughter graduates high school next year, and we were hoping she could attend this school tuition-free. Instead, we may have to move, losing whatever benefits we may have accrued. Should my husband ask for compensation when he leaves, such as some kind of tuition benefit? The president is about to retire and has no interest in moving my husband to a different department. How do we handle this? -- In a Bind Dear Bind: How does your husband feel about the situation? If his daughter were guaranteed a tuition-free education at this college, would he be able to stick it out for another year or two until she is established? Is the president of the college the only one who can transfer your husband to another department? Would it do any good for him to go back to the human resources department? Please discuss his options, and then let him do whatever he feels is best. We know you have a vested interest in the outcome, but it is his job, and he should make the final decision. Dear Annie: My husband and I have eight grown children between us and an ever-increasing number of grandchildren.
We make a good living, but when several of them come home for the weekends, the grocery bills get very high, especially when I have to buy for those with food allergies and unusual preferences. Now that some of our kids have good salaries, what’s the best way to say it would be nice if everyone chipped in when we have weekends together? I find it difficult to ask, and some of them get a little annoyed that we would even think they should help. They’ve been known to send requests for the meals they want. I’ve thought about sending out an email with the anticipated menus and asking them to let me know whether they would like to bring or prepare any of it. Is that fair? -- Too Good of a Cook Dear Cook: This is your family, and they are staying the weekend. They should be pitching in at every meal, and you should not be afraid to tell them so. Since they refuse to offer graciously, it’s fine to send a group email and assign a type of dish (starch, vegetable) to each child. Be upbeat and excited about their contribution to the weekend, and say you can’t wait to taste their cooking. They can swap assignments or ask to prepare something else, but if they bring nothing, please do not compensate by cooking it yourself. Simply say you’re sorry there will be less to eat. Dear Annie: I read the response from “Frank” about guests who track snow into the house. His suggestion is for the hostess to let people know in advance that they will have to take off their shoes. Nobody wants snow tracked into their home. If there is snow on the ground, why don’t you already know that you’ll have to remove your shoes at the door? -- Glass Half Full

Governor touring Lewiston fire damage; arrests made Daily Sun Staff Reports
Maine Gov. Paul LePage will travel today to Lewiston to tour fire damage to multiple buildings that has left nearly 200 people homeless in the Twin Cities, the governor’s office reported. Three separate fires have occurred in the city’s downtown district in a week. Lewiston Mayor Robert Macdonald will accompany LePage at 8:30 a.m. today at City Hall before walking downtown. The most recent fire that damaged at least three apartment buildings occurred Monday morning on Bartlett Street in downtown Lewiston. It is the third major fire in a week to hit Lewiston’s downtown area. The first fire happened on Monday, April 29, destroying three buildings on Blake, Pine and Bates streets. On Friday, another fire damaged four buildings on Bartlett and Pierce streets. Two 12-year-old boys have been charged with arson in connection to at least two of the fires. On Saturday, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland reported that for
the second time in two days, a 12-year-old boy was charged with arson in connection with a huge fire in downtown Lewiston. Officials from the State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Lewiston police and fire departments announced Saturday afternoon that a 12-year-old Lewiston boy was arrested and charged with four counts of arson. The boy was arrested at the Lewiston Police Department earlier in the afternoon and was being held at the Long Creek Correction facility for juveniles pending his first court date either Monday or Tuesday. Officials said others may be charged. Another 12-year-old boy was charged last Thursday with setting the fire that destroyed four apartment buildings in Lewiston on Monday, April 29, a fire that left 75 people homeless. The second fire on the night of Friday, May 3, destroyed three apartment buildings and left 105 people homeless and damage is estimated at $1 million, McCausland said. Investigators said the Friday night fire started in a vacant garage adjacent to a condemned apartment on Pierce Street
and the fire quickly spread. Since this outbreak of fires, the Office of the Governor has been in contact with Lewiston Mayor Robert Macdonald to offer support, according to LePage’s office. People displaced by the recent fires can attend a housing fair this Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at DHHS’s Lewiston office, 200 Main St. Landlords and property managers with vacancies are asked to attend and connect with individuals and families who lost their homes. MaineHousing, Maine Department of Health and Human Services and other support agencies is hosting the fair. For those who would like to help those displaced by the fires, monetary donations are being collected through the United Valley Red Cross. Anyone interested in donating may call 795-4004. To mail in donations, the address is: United Valley Red Cross for Lewiston Fire Victims, 1180 Lisbon St., Lewiston, ME 04240. Also, for those interested in donating, visit www.volunteermaine.org/disaster and search for the “Lewiston Fire Relief Fund.”

Two Cheverus High seniors honored by football foundation Two members of the 2013 Cheverus High School football team have been selected to receive ScholarAthlete Awards by the Maine Chapter of the National Football Foundation, the school reported. Seniors Ryan Casale and Donald Goodrich will be honored with other honorees at a banquet at Bowdoin College on May 22.

tive high school academic honors in the country, the school noted. The network covers more than 4,800 high schools and 400,000 studentathletes in 47 states. Yearly via its state chapters it analyzes the credentials of the top student-athletes in their communities. Criteria for the award include but are not limited to academic achievement, athletic accomplishments and community leadership. The chapters recognize approximately Casale 3,300 of the best scholar-athletes at local awards banquets and distribute more than $1 million in scholarships. From these 3,300 scholar-athletes, each chapter nominates one candidate as a finalist for national consideration. The NFF national committee then reviews the finalists and selects five winners, one from each region of the country. Each of the five recipients travels to New York City where they are honored each Goodrich December during the NFF Chapter Awards Luncheon at The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Casale is the son of Stacey and Frederick Casale of Portland. Donald Goodrich is the son of Stacie and Jerry Goodrich of York.
Two Windham students named as U.S. Presidential Scholars Two Windham students — Taylor R. Church, Catherine McAuley High School, Portland; and Jameson R. McBride, Windham High School — were named U.S. Presidential Scholars. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the 49th class of U.S. Presidential Schol-
ars on Monday, noting that 141 high school seniors will be recognized for their accomplishments in academics or the arts. The 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholars are comprised of one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and from U.S. families living abroad, as well as 15 chosen at-large and 20 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts. The 2013 ceremony will be held June 16, when each honoree will receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion. Church’s most influential teacher was Ruth Conlogue, Portland; and McBride’s most influential teacher was Richard Nickerson, Windham, according to a press release from Duncan’s office. Created in 1964, the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program has honored more than 6,000 of the nation’s top-performing students with the prestigious award given to honorees during the annual ceremony in D.C. The program was expanded in 1979 to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, literary and performing arts.

Managed by the city, the fund had a balance of $7,406 this past April.

From tennis and beer to soliloquies over skulls, Davalos’ imaginative comedy of 16th century college life mixes slapstick and wordplay with a philosophical exploration of reason versus faith, played out in a zany spin on classic characters – real and imaginary!” May 8-10 at 7:30 p.m.; May 11 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.; May 12 at 2 p.m.; May 14-17 at 7:30 p.m.; also May 16 at 2 p.m.; May 18 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.; May 19 at 2 p.m. Portland Stage. ttp:// www.portlandstage.org
9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Presented in Portland, an AARP Driver Safety Class for drivers age 50 and older will be presented from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the AARP Maine State Office, 1685 Congress St. The registration fee is $12 for AARP members, $14 for others. To register, phone Phil Chin, AARP volunteer instructor, at 370-9647. Because class size is limited, early registration no later than May 1 is advised. The AARP Driver Safety Program is the first and largest classroom refresher course specifically designed to meet the driving safety needs of experienced and mature drivers. Offered as a four-hour class in Maine, this class helps drivers learn about defensive driving, new traffic laws and rules of the road and it helps older drivers learn how to adjust to agerelated changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. Insurance companies in Maine are required to give discounts to drivers age 55 and older for three years after they complete this course.

The answer is a resounding ‘no’ in ‘The Last Romance,’ the heartwarming romantic comedy about the thrill and complications of love in the later years, now playing at The Public Theatre May 3 -12. Widower Ralph Bellini has a life filled with routine, but life is suddenly a thrill again when he takes a new route on his walk home and spies a lovely lady in a dog park. The tra-
