Councilors probe provisions to help speed up permitting process in next year’s budget By Craig Lyons THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN
In the upcoming year, Portland will rely on management and system improvements to speed up the permitting process instead of adding more staff. The City Council took a look at the proposed 2014 budget during a workshop on Monday, and the biggest question revolved around what provisions in the $216 million allocation will help ease the permitting process for residents and businesses. City Manager Mark Rees said management improvements and streamlining are being relied on to ease the process rather than adding extra staff positions. Rees said significant improvements are being made to the different officers involved in the permitting process and two reports were completed to explore possible changes that can be made to make it more efficient. He said until those management changes have been in place long enough to be evaluated, he’d recommend holding off on adding any additional staff members. Councilor Ed Suslovic said he doesn’t see that the changes have resulted in any progress because he’s still routinely getting complaints from constituents. He asked how the city expects to increase taxable value on properties through improvements landowners make when the process
takes too long. “I just think this is an an issue [where] we can’t afford to wait,” he said. Councilor Cheryl Leeman said she’d like to see a presentation from staff about the changes that are being put in place and what results they expect to see. She said she’s not hearing that any improvements are making the process easier for people. During the permitting process for any project, time is money, said Leeman, and it doesn’t bode well for the city if they can’t see to it that the process is facilitated better. Mayor Michael Brennan said he’d like to have a council workshop that looks at the changes being made to the restaurant inspections, permitting and development and code enforcement, since those are the issues many councilors want to have more information about. Aside from the questions about making the permitting process more efficient, the council had few issues with the proposed $216 million operating budget. The proposed budget is a 4.9 percent — or $10.02 million — increase over the 2013 operating budget, according to a memo. The anticipated total tax levy for Portland is estimated at $19.31, according to a memo. The council will take up the budget again at its June 17 meeting.
In Abyssinian benefit, groups to honor civil rights leader June 15 Daily Sun Staff Report
Nearly 75 years after his death on a rainy Wiscasset morning, poet and early civil rights leader James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938) will be honored with worship and community conversation during “God’s Trombones” at Trinity Church, 580 Forest Ave., Portland (http://www.trinitychurchportland.org), on Saturday, June 15, at 5 p.m. A collaboration of four Portland churches, the event is free and open to the public, according to a press releae from organizers. Donations benefit the Abyssinian Meeting House Restoration Project of Portland (http://www. abyme.org). Church leaders will deliver sermon poems from “God’s Trombones,” the 1927 book in which Johnson sought to capture in verse the powerful instrument of the folk preacher’s voice. In the book’s introduction, he said, “The old-time Negro preacher is rapidly passing. I have here tried sincerely to fix something of him.” Bringing the sermon poems to life are the Rev. Dr. H. Roy Partridge, Jr., of Trinity Church and Bowdoin College; Bishop Steve Coleman, Williams Temple Church of God in Christ; and the Rev. Kenneth I. Lewis, Jr., Green
Memorial AME Zion Church. After the service, Dean Benjamin Shambaugh of Cathedral Church of St. Luke will lead a community conversation with the preachers about the sermon poems’ significance today. The Choir of Green Memorial AME Zion Church will sing the service’s spirituals and hymns. Organist Albert Melton of Cathedral Church of St. Luke will play the prelude and postlude. Also contributing are guests from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Brunswick; Linda Ashe-Ford will offer the book’s preliminary “Listen Lord, A Prayer” and the Rev. Alfred Niese will introduce the service. Trinity Church Rector, the Rev. Lawrence Weeks, will welcome the congregation. Almost 75 years ago, on June 26, 1938, Johnson died in Wiscasset from injuries sustained when his car was struck by a train. Johnson, along with wife Grace Nail Johnson who survived the crash, had been visiting friends in Thomaston. More than 2,000 mourners flooded Johnson’s memorial service in Harlem. True to his wishes, Johnson was interred wearing his writing clothes, holding a copy of “God’s Trombones.”

Out on a limb There is one supreme and universal law of human relations in all its manifestations, social, political, economic, cultural: people create no end of mischief in the hours when they are not sleeping. Any vision of history-yet-to-come must be predicated on this principle. A correspondent of mine objected to the idea I floated a couple of times that Japan would be the first advanced industrial nation to “go medieval.” This prompts me to clarify that emphasis should be on the word “first.” The re-set to a much lower scale and intensity of human activity is certain for all nations; the only questions are the timeframe and the quality of the journey and those are sure to vary from one group of people to another. I picked on Japan because ––––– their journey seems to have Kunstler.com compressed and accelerated in recent years and also because there’s a lot to admire in their possible destination if history is any guide: a graceful culture of lower energy and high

Miracles of innovation This is a remarkable age of instantaneous and seemingly endless information. We are surrounded with personal research tools that can provide resources of information on infinite topics that affect our lives. Learning how to use the tools and digest the information is the challenge of the twenty-first century. Innovative application solves problems that beset us. We are survivors. Our greatest attribute is adaptability. In every aspect of contemporary life there is a tension between how things have been done before and how they will be done in the future. Sometimes the solutions to our greatest problems are close at hand. Some scientists are close to manufacturing synthetic plant cells that can grow by digesting carbon dioxide trapped in the atmosphere. Plastics are a remnant technology of the twentieth century, something that uses enormous amounts of fossil fuels in its manufacture and, being resistant to natural decay, causes long-term disruption to the natural environment. Some creative thinkers are creating natural products that provide the services of some plastics without the detrimental side effects. Mushrooms might be grown that can replace the plastic packing peanuts that have become so ubiquitous in the modern world.

One Man’s Island In the supermarket check-out aisle we are asked, “paper or plastic?” Neither is the environmentally correct answer. We are encouraged to bring our reusable bags to the market. Islanders carry dozens of canvas tote bags and insulated grocery bags to and from the mainland every week. Growing our own foods is preferable to buying it in the stores, but hardly convenient. I have grown strawberries for more than forty years and it is a lot of work building the beds, planting, nurturing, and harvesting the berries. I look forward each June to the harvest of my crop. This year for the past two months all the supermarkets of southern Maine have featured extraordinary strawberries in clear plastic boxes at remarkably affordable prices less than two dollars per pound. Some of these strawberries are the largest strawberries I have ever seen; some the size of plums. They are nor quite as juicy or as sweet as the ones I grow, but very close. They are a real delicacy and
much less expensive than the little cans of cat food that I buy in the market. This is a miracle to me; these berries are grown, harvested, packed in little plastic boxes, kept refrigerated, and shipped across the country more cheaply than I can grow them in my own yard. These strawberries are huge and they taste great. Because I read a lot of newspapers, I wonder if they have been genetically modified. The labeling is scant: fresh produce, San Diego, CA, 92154. I imagine that safeguards are in place and child labor and desperate working conditions have not made this remarkable produce possible. I will have to google Andrew & Williamson, the marketers of this product. I am optimistic that these techniques can be duplicated to provide strawberries to all the hungry people in the world. Compare this with the economic success story of Backyard Tomatoes of Madison, Maine and Nonesuch Oysters of Scarborough, Maine. I believe we will adapt, innovate, and survive: good food for nine billion. Now I must research recipes for red seaweed (invasive) and cicadas.

By the early 21st century, China was eating Japan’s lunch KUNSTLER from page 4
artistry. The transition between that older culture and the point of industrial take-off was also much sharper for Japan than so-called Western societies. They did not look back on the startling episode of Rome and they didn’t experience a thrilling “Renaissance” of rediscovery in its technical achievements — which eventuated in the Western discovery of a “new world” and all its exploitable resources. The Japanese were pestered by Catholic missionaries for a brief time beginning in the 1540s, but tossed them out in 1620s, along with the merchants who accompanied them — and then very consciously barred the door. They even gave up on the guns that the Euro-people had introduced, regarding them as unsportsmanlike. Finally, Commodore Perry from the USA landed in the 1850s, with all the weight of Western technological momentum behind him, and demanded access to trade there and Japan, in effect, surrendered to modernity. They also thrived on it for a while. For one thing, they had a lot of beautifully-made exotic cultural objects to trade with the west, and their artisan skill level in things like ceramics and metallurgy made the transition to industrial technology of their own easy. In half a century, Japan went from an isolated archipelago of tea ceremonies and silks to building steel battleships and airplanes, and we all know the mischief that led to during
the first half of the horrid 20th century: the Rape of Nanking, the Bataan Death March, the bombing of Tokyo, and Hiroshima. Then came Act 2: postwar economic revival, the SONY stereo, Mitsubishi, major league baseball, and really excellent automobiles. That went on for while, too. About 40 years. There was one insurmountable problem lurking in the background: Japan did not possess any fossil fuels, oil or methane gas, to run all the equipment of modernity that they had ramped up. That didn’t matter so much when imported oil was $11-a-barrel, but it became crucial when the cost quickly rose to $100-a-barrel, as it did in recent years. It also began to matter that Japan’s bigger neighbor and age-old rival (and sometimes victim), China, ramped up its own industrial economy which, of course, consumed a healthy portion of what the world oil market put up for sale. By the early 21st century, China was eating Japan’s lunch (its bento box, shall we say) by manufacturing the same stuff that the Japanese had excelled at making, and all of a sudden the whole project of modernity in Japan hit the skids. Then came the Thoku earthquake of 2011, and the giant wall of water that slammed, among other things, the multiple nuclear reactors at Fukushima. The Japanese industrial confederation had taken a certain amount of comfort in its ability to keep the electricity going by other means than fossil fuels. Now, all of a sudden,
a nuclear dragon was loose upon the land, a veritable Godzilla, Japan’s worst nightmare. A year later, all but two of Japan’s nuclear power plants were shut down. By no coincidence, Japan also found itself wallowing in a trade deficit after decades of enjoying trade surpluses, due to the amount of oil and gas the nation had to import to keep the electricity running. Japan’s energy predicament is expressing itself in a financial crisis, naturally enough, since finance is a set of abstract markers for what is happening in an economy — and the country’s finances are pretty much running amok as its political leaders try desperately to adjust to the new realities of powerdown. They are employing accounting fraud to offset the inescapable failures of capital formation under the circumstances, the same as all the other advanced industrial nations. As a purely financial matter it simply amounts to no longer being able to generate enough new wealth to pay the interest on old credit, or to justify the creation of new credit. Since credit is the lifeblood of industrialism, the sun is setting on that phase of history. Japan finds itself in a dishonorable quandary and in tune with some of its older cultural infrastructure appears to be committing suicide with a sword thrust into the guts of its banking system. America, in contrast, is driving over the edge of the Grand Canyon, Thelma-and-Louise-style. Europe is drinking a poison cup in sumptuous seclusion. China and India will just
look like lemming marches into the increasingly vacant sea. Financial hara-kiri might be the best outcome for Japan — better, say, than a war with China over some desolate islands — if Japan were to retreat as rapidly back into a traditional artisan economy as it bailed out of in the 1860s. I realize this is a long-shot and includes many knotty elements not under discussion here, such as population reduction and the fate of Fukushima. Also, history is almost never symmetrical. Things don’t retrace the arc they came up. The journey will surely be bumpier. But Japan might get there first and set some interesting precedents for the rest of us. At the heart of the matter is this. Industrialism is an entropic project. It accelerates and intensifies entropy, which is to say the drive toward disorder and death. Tradition in human societies is the great moderator of entropy. Of course, nothing stays the same forever, but some of us would like to see the human project continue, and to get to place where it can feel comfortable with itself for a while, perhaps even something resembling a new (and completely unfamiliar) golden age, when the people not asleep can be trusted.

Helen Estelle Brown Smith Nicholson, 70 PORTLAND — Helen Estelle Brown Smith Nicholson, 70, peacefully passed away surrounded by her loving family in her home on Saturday, June 1, 2013. Helen was born Oct. 22, 1942, in Portland, daughter of Bridget Burke Brown and James Brown. She attended Cathedral School in Portland. She was the youngest of nine children. Helen had a wonderful sense of humor right until the end making everyone smile and laugh with her Irish wit. She was a strong willed Irish Catholic wife and mother who will be dearly missed. Helen retired from Unum in 2007 after ten years. She enjoyed traveling with her husband and their dear friends who they took many trips with together. Ireland was a favorite destination and they had planned to visit Ireland again prior to being diagnosed with cancer last fall. Helen married Robert J. Smith of South Portland, her high school sweetheart, in 1960. Robert was killed in Vietnam in 1965. In 1968 she married David J. Nicholson and was his loving wife for 45 years. Helen’s illness did not deter her from living or enjoying her family. She continued to be determined and courageous during her all too brief battle with pancreas cancer. She often said ‘my kids are my best work’. Her biggest enjoyment came from the family gatherings. Music and laughter were the common thread to these events. She loved having her family around her. These times represent some of the best memories for her husband, children and grandchildren. Helen thoroughly enjoyed being a grandmother. Babysitting her nine grandchildren as infants or watching them grow into teenagers and adults brought tremendous pride to her life. The
kid’s sporting events and trips to Florida brought her added joy in her role as mother and grandmother. Helen had a real knack for making people feel loved and special; it was one of her unique gifts. As part of a large Irish Catholic family, Helen had over 100 nieces and nephews. Some of these nieces and nephews forged bonds that will be forever linked in our memories of Helen and her “extended family.” When Helen was not with her family and friends, she was walking and jogging Baxter Boulevard and the Portland Trails. She was an avid walker and runner over her life time and loved to exercise. Her other outdoor passion was her garden. It was a true labor of love, spending tireless hours with her husband transforming her backyard into their own slice of paradise. Helen was a person of great vitality, energy and intelligence. She will long be remembered and memories will be cherished by her family and friends. Helen was a lifelong parishioner of Cathedral Church, attending the Cathedral school as a child and later married in the same church. She was a compassionate and generous woman, often making

donations to the homeless of Portland or anyone else in need. Helen was predeceased by brothers and sisters, James, Richard, Gerald, Thomas, and Martha ‘Hilda’ and Marjorie. She is survived by her beloved husband David J. Nicholson of Portland; her four children Michael Smith and wife Katy Kellogg of Miami, Fla., daughter, Gina Smith Auger and husband Michael Auger of Westbrook, son Stephen Smith and his partner Christina Foote of Westbrook and her daughter Lisa Nicholson O’Brien and her husband Bourke O’Brien of Portland; nine grandchildren, Nathan Field, Steven Smith, Matthew Auger, Noelle Auger, Stephanie Cole, Abigail Helene O’Brien, Karl M.

Prayer services will be recited Tuesday morning June 4 at 9 a.m. at the Jones, Rich and Hutchins funeral home with a Mass of Christian Burial at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception at 10 a.m. Interment will be at a later date at Calvary Cemetery in South Portland.

Cumberland County Sheriff’s Honor Guard to present colors at Fenway Daily Sun Staff Reports
The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office announced that the agency’s Honor Guard was asked to present the colors during the pre-game ceremonies today at Fenway Park for the Red Sox v. Texas Rangers game. “We see this as an excellent opportunity to represent the State of Maine, showcase our Honor Guard, and pay tribute to the City of Boston in response to the recent bombing during the Boston Marathon,” said Sheriff Kevin J. Joyce, in a press release. The ceremony is expected to start at 7:10 p.m.
CMP restores power after 31,000 affected by Sunday thunderstorms Central Maine Power Company restored service to nearly all of its customers Monday following severe thunderstorms that hit Maine on Sunday and knocked out power to about 31,000 customers. At 4 p.m. Monday, fewer than 2,900 customers remained without service, most in Maine’s western mountains and foothills, the company reported. CMP expected to have service restored to the vast majority of these customers by late Monday evening, but added that due to areas where storm debris blocked access for repair crews meant there may be pockets of customers who will remain without service into the overnight hours. An estimated 300 people, including lineworkers, pole-setting crews, tree crews, assessors, safety specialists, supervisors and others, were working in the field and in CMP offices on service restoration.
Pingree announces: Navy awards new contracts for four destroyers at BIW The U.S. Navy has awarded Bath Iron Works contracts to build four Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers, according to U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine. Altogether, the contracts are worth over $2.8 billion, her office reported. The contract also includes an option for a fifth ship, which, if exercised, would bring the total value of the contract to over $3.5 billion. Pingree, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, spoke with Navy Secretary Ray Mabus about the contracts. “Although four ships represent a lot of work for BIW, we need to keep fighting to get the remaining funding necessary for one more,” Pingree said. “Secretary Mabus was clear to me that these ships are a backbone of the fleet and absolutely what we need to be secure in future conflict.” Pingree also said Mabus blamed sequestration for any uncertainty around the construction of a fifth ship.
“The Secretary was very clear that the money to build a total of ten DDG 51s, including five in Bath, was there. But because of sequestration Congress has left the Navy with a $304 million shortfall for that last ship,” Pingree said. “Now it’s up to us to find that money and so that fifth ship can be built at BIW.” BIW is also currently under contract to build three Zumwalt-class destroyers, the first of which is scheduled to be delivered to the Navy late next year or early in 2015.
Maine Turnpike exit toll lane to be closed for work Emergency repairs necessary to accurately charge E-ZPass tolls will require closing one of two toll lanes used by vehicles entering the Maine Turnpike for southbound travel at Exit 63 in Gray, the Maine Turnpike Authority reported Monday. Motorists will likely experience long delays and heavy congestion on nearby roads and are advised to seek alternate routes, especially between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m., Thursday, June 13, Friday, June 14, and possibly Monday, June 17, the authority reported. Work is expected to begin at approximately 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 12, with the contract calling for repairs to be done in five days, weather permitting. The Maine Turnpike Authority has scheduled the work to include the weekend to minimize impact on weekday commuters, and is expected to reopen the toll lane Monday, June 17.
Art at Work to present Radio Calls excerpts On Thursday, the city of Portland and the Art at Work program will present Radio Calls excerpts, with several Portland police officers performing excerpts about the life and work of police officers in Portland, the city reported in a press release.

Water main break closes courthouse offices, forces Pearl Street traffic detour Daily Sun Staff Reports
The U.S. District Court for the District of Maine located at the Edward T. Gignoux courthouse in Portland was closed Monday due to a water main break on Pearl Street, officials reported. Court operations were expected to resume today. According to a telephone recording at the executive department of the Cumberland County offices, flooding in the basement also forced closure of the county side of the courthouse. All electricity had to be shut off on the county side due to the flooding; the state side of the building remained open for business, according to the recording. Portland Water District crews were busy Monday repairing the water main leak on Pearl Street, which forced the reduction of traffic on Pearl Street between Middle and Newbury to one lane, with motorists traveling north detoured. Water was restored by Monday afternoon, but the water district expected road repair to continue until 9 p.m. Monday and again today from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. During road repair, northbound travel between Newbury and Middle will remain detoured, the district warned.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t criticize or compete with your people. You are absolutely loyal to those above and under you in rank. In this regard, you set a tone that others will follow today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even though your contribution to a group is substantial and important, you may not get personal props for this. It won’t hurt to quietly keep track, though, so later you can build a case for your own promotion. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes you like to be the performer who puts on a spectacular show. But right now you don’t want all the pressure that comes with that. You just want to do “you,” and you’ll find that people respond to exactly who you are. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 4). Your certainty in yourself opens doors. Make the most of the stellar work opportunities that come over the next six weeks. August has a loose, relaxed feel, and your social life thrives. Lifestyle changes in September improve your health and fitness, and a new guru helps. In February, you’ll declare your love, and this will be a life changer. Libra and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 8, 13, 24 and 32.
by Paul Gilligan
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Break your patterns. Doing things out of order, upside down and bottom to top will help you gain the detached point of view you need to understand what’s really going on today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have nothing to hide. And yet, you don’t like the idea that much of what you do, purchase, post, like and enjoy is being tracked in some way. Issues of privacy will arise. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You prefer to actually be useful, not to merely look busy. And there are those around who don’t even know better than to proudly display their idleness. You have something to teach them now. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are those “stumble upon” kind of days when solutions come rolling into your path. But today will require more effort. In order to find an answer, you have to look for one. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s a kind of chase going on inside your head akin to a dog chasing his own tail. If you’re not having any breakthroughs on the matter that’s on your mind, the best course is not to think about it for a while. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Instead of trying to control a situation, gain the trust of the people involved. Then you won’t have to assert yourself or attempt to force your agenda; you’ll just have to ask nicely. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is a huge difference between doing something weekly or monthly and doing it every day. There will be an opportunity to incorporate a good habit into your daily life, and there are rich rewards for doing so. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will show patience and afford people more leeway than they deserve in the moment. To respect the people around you even when they are not acting in a respectful way toward you is the kind of true nobility you strive for. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). For most of the day, you’ll smile, charm and offer your two bits. You don’t mind entertaining others, but if you wind up alone tonight, you’ll love the company and will be happy for the break.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, June 4, the 155th day of 2013. There are 210 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 4, 1913, British suffragist Emily Davison was struck and mortally injured after moving into the path of a horse during the running of the Epsom Derby; her exact motives remain unclear. (The horse that ran into Davison was Anmer, owned by King George V. Jockey Herbert Jones was thrown off and injured; Anmer recovered and completed the race on its own; Davison died at a hospital four days later.) On this date: In 1783, the Montgolfier brothers first publicly demonstrated their hot-air balloon, which did not carry any passengers, over Annonay, France. In 1812, the Louisiana Territory was renamed the Missouri Territory. The U.S. House of Representatives approved a declaration of war against Britain. In 1892, the Sierra Club was incorporated in San Francisco. In 1919, Congress approved the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing citizens the right to vote regardless of their gender, and sent it to the states for ratification. In 1939, the German ocean liner St. Louis, carrying more than 900 Jewish refugees from Germany, was turned away from the Florida coast by U.S. officials. In 1940, during World War II, the Allied military evacuation of more than 338,000 troops from Dunkirk, France, ended. In 1942, the World War II Battle of Midway began, resulting in a decisive American victory against Japan and marking the turning point of the war in the Pacific. In 1954, French Premier Joseph Laniel and Vietnamese Premier Buu Loc signed treaties in Paris according “complete independence” to Vietnam. In 1972, a jury in San Jose, Calif., acquitted radical activist Angela Davis of murder and kidnapping for her alleged connection to a deadly courthouse shootout in Marin County in 1970. In 1986, Jonathan Jay Pollard, a former Navy intelligence analyst, pleaded guilty in Washington to conspiring to deliver information related to the national defense to a foreign government, specifically Israel. (He is serving a life prison term.) In 1998, a federal judge sentenced Terry Nichols to life in prison for his role in the Oklahoma City bombing. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush held landmark meetings with the Israeli and Palestinian prime ministers, hoping to advance a Middle East peace plan after winning new support from top Arab leaders. Martha Stewart stepped down as head of her media empire, hours after federal prosecutors in New York charged her with obstruction of justice, conspiracy, securities fraud and lying to investigators. Five years ago: Barack Obama, having clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, picked Caroline Kennedy to help him choose a running mate. One year ago: With President Barack Obama standing by his side, former President Bill Clinton warned during a speech in New York that a Mitt Romney presidency would be “calamitous” for the nation and the world.

St. Judes - $5
Dear Annie: I was overweight throughout most of my childhood and became morbidly obese after high school. When I was in college, I had terrible self-esteem and a horrible body image. I never dated. Three years ago, I had gastric bypass and have since lost more than 200 pounds. I’ve been trying to start dating, but the individuals I have approached are either seeing someone else or are not interested. I tried online dating sites, but the men who responded all live far away, some in other countries, and I’m leery of proceeding. I am not sure about the bar scene and am unaware of any singles groups in my area. So, I guess I would like some advice on how and where to start relationships. -- Breaking Out of My Shell Dear Breaking: There are better online dating sites that will match you up with men in your area (or at least in the same country). Try again. You also should ask your friends and relatives to introduce you to available men they know. Local churches and synagogues often have singles groups, and you should be able to attend some functions without having to be a member. Most importantly, project a confident, positive exterior. Smile. Guys like women who are fun to talk to. And while you are searching for a date, participate in activities that interest you. This will have the added benefit of making you more interesting to be around. Good luck. Dear Annie: I have a beautiful granddaughter who is getting married in June. However, I am not invited to the wedding. I’ve been told they are keeping it really small because of the size of the facility. But I found out there will be about 20 guests. I’m invited to the reception, and I’ve already been told what gift my granddaughter wants as a wedding present. It’s quite pricey.
I thought I had a good relationship with my grandkids. But sometimes it seems I’m only needed when they want expensive things. Should I keep quiet about this hurt? I’m not sure I can go to the reception, and that may cause a larger distance between us. -- Upset Grandmother Dear Upset: Of course, we would hope the bride would want her grandmother to be at the wedding, but let’s not jump to conclusions. A ceremony with 20 guests is exceedingly small and also includes members of the groom’s immediate family, of whom there may be many. If you can possibly attend the reception, it would be lovely. Either way, you are under no obligation to purchase an expensive wedding present simply because your granddaughter asked for one. Dear Annie: It was amazing and heartwarming to read stories of grandparents being reunited with their grandchildren after so many years of estrangement. What bothers me about these letters, however, is that they are one-sided. Fifteen years ago, I parted ways with my family when I hung up on my father. I didn’t find the humor in his jokes about the lifelong physical and mental abuse I suffered at the hands of my mother. Since then, my parents have not contacted me, and I have not contacted them. Meanwhile, I have received letters and cards from family members telling me to change my evil ways and let my parents into my life. I have run into people who lecture me about my rude behavior. I know about the commandment to honor my mother and father, but honestly, I am much happier not having my parents or their abuse in my life. This is not the way I would have chosen to live, and it saddens me that I am made to be the villain in a situation where it takes two to tango. -- Family-Free from Wisconsin

Our Lady of Victories art talk
5:30 p.m. June 7 as a part of First Friday Art Walk, the Portland Public Art Committee will feature Art in Our Front Yard: Portland’s Public Art Collection with a discussion of Our Lady of Victories located in Monument Square. “PPAC member Jere Dewaters will lead a discussion of the statue, its history and significance within the city’s collection. The public is encouraged to join the PPAC Friday June 7th and learn about the art in their front yard and share in a discussion of the unique place public art holds in our community. Our Lady of Victories is arguably the most wellknown piece of public art in Portland. In the late nineteenth century, erecting civic monuments in memory of historic events and people became a popular custom. Located in Monument Square in the heart of downtown, Our Lady of Victories commemorates the Portland soldiers who fought and died in the American Civil War. In 1873, seven years after the devastation of the Great Fire, an association was formed under the leadership of Brevet Brigadier General John Marshall Brown to erect a monument in honor of the 5,000 lives the city lost to the Civil War, fully one-sixth of its population.” For more information about the Portland Public Art Committee, visit www.portlandmaine.gov/ planning/pubart.asp. see next page

Civic Center naming rights on Wednesday agenda Portland firm hired to help explore sale of building’s naming rights; board also to review Pirates lease By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN
A marketing firm that specializes in selling naming rights for arenas, including the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston where the Portland Pirates will play this fall, has been hired to help with the process of exploring naming rights for the Cumberland County Civic Center, according to Civic Center Board Chairman Neal Pratt. Discussion of naming rights for the Civic Center is among the agenda items for a special meeting of the Civic Center Board of Trustees on Wednesday morning. Front Row Marketing of Portland, a subsidiary of the Philadelphia-based Comcast-Spectacor, was hired recently to help with the proPratt cess of finding a company or entity that can pay for naming rights to the Civic Center as well as the task of developing an “advertising inventory of the facility,” Pratt said. The inventory covers a range of money-making possibilities, whether it’s signs on walls or event advertising imprinted in the arena ice itself, Pratt said. Following a request for proposals, officials interviewed two or three companies and selected Front Row, Pratt said. According to Front Row’s website, “Front Row Marketing Services is a leader in valuing, soliciting, and negotiating naming rights for an assortment of clients worldwide.” One of the “recent successes” noted on its website is the Androscoggin Bank Colisee. Pratt said Front Row can guide the Civic Center board in properly valuing the newly restored Civic Center, once the facility reopens, tentatively next January.
“One of the reasons Front Row is so appealing, they know this business. ... The last thing we would ever want to do is undervalue that inventory,” Pratt said. Previously, the Civic Center was under a naming rights stipulation that stated the name would not be anything other than the Cumberland County Civic Center, Pratt explained. After that agreement expired, managers looked at naming rights, but due to the pending renovation, they postponed a decision. “We decided to wait, and now consistent with that plan ... they can do a much better value analysis,” Pratt said. Also on the agenda is discussion, in closed executive session, of a new lease agreement with the Portland Pirates. In mid-April, the Civic Center board voted 6-3 to move forward with a five-year lease with the Portland Pirates hockey organization, ending months of negotiations. In one of the major provisions of the new lease, 57.5 percent of the net concessions revenue from Portland Pirates events will go to the Pirates, the two sides explained. Yet the actual lease document has not been formally approved, Pratt explained, so the board hopes to officially sign off on the new lease. A five-year lease with a mutual option for five more was hailed in April by Brian Petrovek, managing owner/CEO of the Pirates, as “an opportunity to turn a page.” Petrovek had noted hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue to the AHL affiliate of the Phoenix Coyotes, because the Pirates organization was waiting on a new lease and wasn’t able to sell tickets for next season. Now, the Pirates are marketing tickets for next season. The Portland Pirates hockey team is selling tickets for games played at the Androscoggin Bank Colisée, a temporary site while the voter-approved, $33 million Civic Center renovation is finished; and then for games to be played at the newly renovated Civic Center itself. Technically, however, the new lease isn’t in effect. “They are still reviewing the draft that we pro-
vided them,” Pratt said of the Pirates, saying the document was sent to the hockey organization for two or three weeks of review. Noting the “complicated commercial lease situation,” the document wasn’t something that could be whipped up overnight, he said. “It took a while after we approved the terms to get the draft completed by our legal staff,” Pratt said. If the lease document doesn’t come back in time for Wednesday’s meeting, the Civic Center board will postpone this item, he said. “My hope is any thoughts that they have will be form over substance,” he said of the Pirates’ legal review. Finally, the Civic Center board plans an executive session under the agenda title of “Private Management Workshop.” Pratt said the goal of this workshop is to review “management models, how the Civic Center will be operated, additional demands on staff, possible additional staff,” but emphasized that the Civic Center has “excellent staff” that are involved in the discussion. “We’re just informing ourselves of different ways that arenas all over the country are run,” Pratt said. “This is just a proactive measure to look at management models all over the country and determine together with our existing staff what the best way to go forward is,” he said. The special meeting is scheduled for 7:45 a.m. at the Cumberland County Courthouse, Peter J. Feeney Conference Room. Portions in executve session are closed to the public. Civic Center Trustee meeting notices are posted on the Civic Center website at www.theciviccenter. com. Updates on the Civic Center renovation are available on the Civic Center’s website and also on the Civic Center’s Facebook page. Extensive exterior renovations are underway at the Civic Center, both on the Free Street and Spring Street sides, including street and sidewalk work. The Civic Center Administration Offices and Box Office have been relocated to 48 Free St. during the renovation.

A legendary general, Titus Andronicus, returns in triumph to Rome. But the city is in chaos, its Emperor dead. The years of battle have taken their toll on Titus — the choices he makes from the moment he sets foot in the city lead to a spiral of betrayal, revenge and death.” Performance times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday Matinees at 2 p.m. There will be a special Talk Back with the director and the actors immediately following the matinee on Sunday, June 16.
