Police search for man suspected of assaulting woman at Back Cove By Craig Lyons

South Portland Police Department noted continuing efforts to support Special Olympics, including “Tip-aCop” event at Applebee’s this past weekend that raised over $740 for Special Olympics Maine. Today, the department also is participating in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run, which consists of the Olympic torch being relayed from department to department across the state. During the early afternoon, South Portland’s officers will receive the torch from Scarborough officers in the area of the Wok Inn, and will carry it north on Main Street (Rte. 1) and

Police are searching for a man who allegedly assaulted a woman in the Preble Street parking lot on Back Cove Monday. A 30-year old woman was attacked when she returned to her car after a jog around Back Cove Monday around 10:20 a.m., according to police. The woman told police a man was in the passenger seat of her car and sexually assaulted her. Police say the man is white, heavy set and around 50 years old. He was further described as balding, had poor hygiene and may have tattoos on his forearms. “This is a scary, heinous act,” said Police Chief Michael Sauschuck. The incident is concerning to the department, especially since it occurred in broad daylight, Sauschuck said, and a similar crime hasn’t been reported in recent memory. The victim told police that when she got in her car, which showed no signs of forced entry, she realized a man was in the passenger seat and tried to fight him off while he sexually assaulted her, according to Sauschuck. Police say the woman was able to sound the car’s horn, and he left the area on foot and walked toward the peninsula. Sauschuck said the victim drove to the police station to report the incident. Police say they think other people were in the lot at the time of attack and are asking them to contact the department with any information. Police are interested if witnesses saw a man enter or exit the passenger side of a small red car and ask them to call detectives immediately at 874-8575. Sauschuck said the department is hoping that a potential witness might remember seeing the man or someone in the area of the victim’s car and step forward to report that information to the police. “We are actively investigating this,” Sauschuck said. In light of the incident, police have increased patrols in the area.

The meanest season

If my body is a buffet, summer is the server who rips the metal covers off the roast beef and the scalloped potatoes so that the hordes can start feeding. And feed they do, mosquitoes and ants and for all I know spiders. (I’m never sure which tiny glutton has made off with the most of me.) A bite on my ankle recently grew so large and Vesuvian that I had to go to the dermatologist to make sure it wasn’t deadly. “What’s this?” she gasped, and the scariest part was that she was looking at something else, on my back. There she discovered a sizable carcinoma, for which summer — not the current one, but all the punishingly sunny ones past — can also be thanked. The calendar says that the ––––– season doesn’t officially begin for another two and a half weeks, The New but it functionally started on York Times Memorial Day weekend. Not long after, the temperature in New York City hit 90 degrees on two afternoons in a row. If that’s a mere prologue to summer, please speed me to the index. The sweat-stained pages in between promise to be unbearable. Then again they usually are, all the more so because of the forced cheer. With fireworks and Ferris wheels, watermelon and water parks, we’re constantly being exhorted to wring summer for all it’s worth. No other season matches it for meteorological bullying.

Restaurant and hospitality people like to go out to eat — in theory anyway. We like to see what’s new under the sun, what everybody else is doing and to investigate rumors we’ve heard about the hottest new or improved places. We want to check out table placement in a remodeled space, where strategic seating seems impossible, and look over the increased prices on summer menus, where most of the items read suspiciously like the winter ones. We want to see if the touted drink specials really are, and if the food in a new place is more memorable than the ownerabout-towns’ name. We want to see which musical chair of a restaurant time clock our industry friends are punching these days and what they have to say about cruise ships, home grown business traffic and, naturally, their bosses. If we have a rare night off and aren’t doing a week’s worth of laundry, playing poker with our

co-workers, or working anyway by covering someone else’s shift, that dining out thing could just happen. More often than not, it takes planning to have a quality “Go Out and Be Waited On” experience where we’re the one who’s being pampered, tended to and made to feel as if our business/ money matters. The problem is, it’s damn near impossible to do so, especially in our own backyard. There are several professional and personal reasons why this is the case. Professionally, “The Go Out and Be Waited On” dining experience is impaired by the following: 1) Maintaining eye contact

with our date or dining companions is difficult when we can’t refrain from scanning the dining room nonstop and taking in the ebb and flow of the operation. It subconsciously and unwittingly becomes field research. 2) When a restaurant employee dines out, the night turns into a series of very un-zen like moments. It’s hard to just accept things as they are without thinking, “What if they did this?” or “They should offer that.” These thoughts are based on actions that most likely take place in an effective manner where the “diner” works other nights of the week elsewhere. 3) Less than stellar service and food wrecks the experience in a huge way, no matter if the perspective is personal or professional. Professionally, it’s even worse when as a server or bartender you have expectations that aren’t met. That leads to correctly believing that staying home and making your own fluffernutter sandwich see LADD page 5

Perhaps my summer sourness is a function of aging BRUNI from page 4

“Are you ready for summer?” “Any special plans for the summer?” Unlike fall or spring, summer is always getting italics like that. I want to meet its publicist. Because I have questions. Why, year after year, do magazines yammer on and on about what the song of the summer will be, as if it’s a coronation with actual consequence? Winter doesn’t have a song. If it did, it sure wouldn’t be sung by the preternaturally peppy likes of Katy Perry. Does summer have to be so grammatically piggy, a vain noun with adjectival delusions? Summer vacation. Summer rental. Summer stage. Summer stock. Summer lover. Summer fling. Summer nights. Summer breeze. And summer movies, God help us, which are a dopey and clangorous breed apart. If they’re not sequels, they’re sequels to sequels or reboots of franchises I thought we’d booted to the curb long ago. In May alone we had our third “Hangover” and our third “Iron Man,” and we were “Fast & Furious” for a sixth time. The “Man of Steel” is en route, with “The Lone Ranger” and “The Wol-

verine” fast on his airborne heels. Summer is rush hour for superheroes. Speaking of which, did you know that traffic fatalities go up markedly in summer? The murder rate rises, too. It’s a mean season, even leaving the sun to the side. People drown, are struck by lightning and wear seersucker. I realize that the last item doesn’t really fit with the previous two, but it’s another potent argument against summer, and I had to put it in somewhere. Perhaps my summer sourness is a function of aging, by which I mean my own, not the earth’s. Summer works best for the young. When you’re on the far side of 45, you and almost everyone you know looks appreciably better in a parka than in a tank top, and the sentence “I’d like to see more of you” concerns frequency, not swimsuits and opentoed shoes. Or maybe I’m reacting to climate change and to the chilling prospect, or rather the blistering one, that an intolerable season could become a quasipermanent one. In a sonnet that assessed summer, Shakespeare acknowledged, “Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines.” That was more than 400 years ago, so I’ll

update the line in accordance with global warming and modern commerce: “Always doth I feel like a French fry under a McDonald’s heat lamp.” That sentiment holds true already from late May through early September. What if the period grows longer, to five or six or even seven months of the year? I don’t have that many sandals, and I can’t imagine that many bug bites. My dermatologist biopsied the Vesuvian one, only to determine that it would eventually shrink if I stopped scratching it, for which she gave me an ointment that has proved completely useless. For the carcinoma, I’ll get surgery and a bevy of stitches. And then, I’m told, all will be well, except that one carcinoma often presages others, especially for those of us whose pale skin and delicate natures aren’t suited to a brutal season of excessive heat and extravagant light. My body isn’t just a buffet. It’s a skin-cancer farm, and summer its fertilizer. I asked her what I should do about that. “Wear hats,” she said. “Cover up. Stay out of the sun.” In winter, that would be a cinch. In summer, it’s no breeze.

it a point to say “Buon giorno,” and his bartender brother Greg cut our limes to order. 3) Perhaps I’m becoming socially anorexic (Hopefully, there’s a pill for this I don’t already take), but I’m just not “out there,” like I was and we all know fun dating leads to fine dining. It has nothing to do with reduced appetite, maintaining my Weight Watchers lifetime number on the scale (which I keep adjusting in my favor) or trying to be healthy. I’ve just lost my “Go Out and Be Waited On” mojo. The good news is, none of the personal reasons are permanent, and the professional ones are necessary for a restaurant insider to recognize greatness in other places and help keep us on top of our own game. The reluctance on my own part is probably just a phase I’m going through and now that I really think about it, I am curious to check out all the new pieces of the restaurant pie that are being cut in this town. Curiosity is a good thing when it doesn’t kill the Nat. In this case, it may just bring back the “Go Out and Be Waited” on mojo, regardless if my BFF has a Groupon or not. The Down Low: Many thanks to both Steves

at DiMillo’s for tolerating me while planning Carly Kardashian’s high school graduation luncheon. The way I carried on, you’d think I was planning a fairy tale wedding for a real Kardashian (is there one that hasn’t had a fairy tale wedding yet?) instead of an off-the menu, routine thing for a daytime party of 12. I did hem and haw over pre-ordering appetizers for the table (crab cakes and Caprese pizza were selected over calamari and jumbo shrimp) and it’s all just a front to keep busy while fueling the denial that my baby is graduating. Many of Carlykardashian’s tassel turning friends of the class of 2013 are the stars of big group graduation lunchtime parties all over the city this week, and I look forward to sharing any fun, funny and no doubt, farcical tidbits next week.

In a nutshell, we just want to be wowed by other industry aces in all corners of the arena, and feel like we’ve learned something via a delicious, well executed meal. Personally, my own “Go Out and Be Waited On” days have been reduced to a slow crawl. As stated, the reasons are personal, but that’s never kept me from sharing with the four people who read this column on a regular basis, so here’s why: 1) I’m flat ass broke. I’ll have two kids in college in the fall and Bad Dog’s food is $56 a bag. 2) This next reason is an embarrassing confession that’s a direct result of number one (and will be a conduit for hate mail), but I’m heavily influenced by whatever soon-to-expire social media discounted deal my BFF is squirreling.

Let’s train the next generation of lifesavers and overturn the governor’s veto

Last Friday, the Governor vetoed the bill that would have trained all high school students in life-saving “Hands Only” CPR. The bill passed the bi-partisan Education Committee and the full legislature unanimously. Governor LePage’s own Department of Education said there was no cost to the measure. The bill, LD 1366, asks that all Maine high schools to spend just 20 minutes to teach our students HandsOnly CPR. This is a very simple measure that will empower our kids to be lifesavers. CPR training can be worked into existing classes. It does not cost a dime. Learning CPR today

Guest Columnist is about learning the easy steps to save a life. Teaching CPR in schools means that today’s students — tomorrow’s adults — will know what to do in a life-and-death situation. At Greely High School, I teach this lifesaving technique every year and have seen first-hand how this training can save lives. One of my students saved his grandfather after

he suffered a cardiac arrest right at our school during a school play. His quick action saved his grandfather’s life. This is just one example. Knowing our students are trained ensures that more lifesavers like this student are out in the community — well after they accept their diplomas. CPR training in schools would cover key areas, including how to recognize an emergency, an emphasis on highquality chest compressions and skills practice. An AED overview would cover the purpose, simplicity and safety of the devices. All information is available for free. Because schools can either use a partially deflated soccer

ball or partner with local EMS, to do the hands on skills practice. There is no need for special equipment. There are approximately 200,000 minutes of instruction time in four years of high school. It takes 20, or less than one tenth of 1 percent of that time to empower kids to save lives. Let’s train the next generation of lifesavers. Let’s teach Maine students to Be CPR Smart. Please take 5 minutes to contact your legislators and tell them to override the veto. (Denise Allen of Windham is a health teacher at Greely High School, Cumberland.)

service operating from the East End boat ramp. I am sorry to hear that there has been opposition to this service. I live one block from the Eastern Promenade, and a big part of what I love about the Portland peninsula is that it has more than restaurants for tourists and housing for office workers and retirees.

Portland is a real working port, and lots of people make their living with their muscles. If the cost of having a community like this is a few trucks driving by, bring ‘em on! Bob Summers Portland

Mark’s Hot Dogs rolls toward 30-year anniversary Hungry for an Old Porker? Old Port mainstay plans to set up Sunday during the Old Port Festival By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

Mustard explosions, melted ice and cultivating loyal customers all are part of the story of Mark Gatti, owner of Mark’s Hot Dogs, a hot dog stand that has been a fixture for three decades in the Old Port. On Thursday, June 13, Mark Gatti will celebrate 30 years of selling hot dogs from his stand at Tommy’s Park, the junction of Middle and Exchange streets in the Old Port. “My first day was June 13, 1983,” Gatti recalled. Before launching his business, Gatti said he had been Gatti out West for a year, working in Colorado Springs for an insurance company, where he managed to save $5,000. In the early 1980s, the economy was gripped by recession, not unlike today, he said, and Gatti struggled to find temporary work. One day, as part of a temp job, he was lifting springs off the floor and loading them into trucks, straining his back, and it dawned on him he should start his own business. “With my dad’s help, we built this cart, in the winter of 1982-83, and I thought I’d do it for a year or two, and here I still am,” Gatti said. Aside from special events, Gatti said he stations his cart Monday through Saturday at Tommy’s Park. On Sunday, during the Old Port Fes-

tival, Mark’s Hot Dogs will operate as well in a different location down by the waterfront. Many of Gatti’s most vivid memories stem from the Old Port Festival, an annual outdoor festival that today attracts thousands to Portland. The first year he signed up to be in the Old Port Festival, Gatti remembered, his father came down to volunteer to help run the stand and keep track of orders. Groups of families with children converged at the stand, but they kept changing their orders, making the accounting side of the job unfathomable. “All of the sudden there was silence on my dad’s end, and I realized he had kind of lost it,” Gatti recalled. Also during the Old Port Festival, the stand ran out of ice, and his father offered to go in search for bags of ice. “Off he went, and everywhere in the Old Port, wherever there might be ice, it was all sold out, and he ended up walking way down to maybe Portland Street where there was ice at a gas station, and he walked all the way back. And he got there and he spent an hour and a half, and I said, ‘Dad, we’re done now, we’re sold out, we’re closed.’” Location and consistency are two keys to success, Gatti said, and “you need to be a people person to have good success, be nice to people.” Sometimes, misadventures in food service can make you wince. One story had a happy ending, even if the embarrassment was all too real at the time. “A lady was here, a nice, professional-looking lady dressed in a nice dress,” Gatti recalled. “She wanted

a hot dog with mustard, and, ‘Yes, ma’am,’ I said. And I was making her hot dog and I was squeezing the mustard bottle and it exploded all over her dress. So I always remembered that. She was very nice about it. I offered to do the dry cleaning, but she declined.” Food service is ever changing, but Gatti said he adjusts. Food trucks, recently introduced under a permitting system by city government, don’t encroach in his area, so he could be circumspect about this innovation in Portland’s food scene.

“It might be a good thing overall,” Gatti said, “keep more food out there. It’s a foodie town, it’s one of the bigger industries, so I like to think maybe it will be good for everybody. As long as it doesn’t interfere with other restaurants and other vendors, I’m all for it.” Gatti posts occasional updates at Marks-Hotdogs/212765052181346?re f=stream. He notes that his stand now accepts credit cards, and one of his recent additions, the Old Porker, has been a hot seller.

Morning crash on I-295 sends one to hospital, snarls traffic Daily Sun Staff Reports

A Tuesday morning crash on Interstate 295 in Yarmouth sent one to the hospital and backed up traffic for over an hour, according to the Maine State Police. At approximately 7:40 a.m. Tuesday morning a two-car accident southbound on I-295 just below the exit 15 onramp snarled traffic, according to Maine State Police Trooper Marvin Hinkley. Adam Soule, 32, of Freeport rear-ended a vehicle driven by Richard Rice, 48, of Richmond, Hinkley reported. Both vehicles were towed from the scene, and Rice was transported to the hospital with neck and back pain, he said. Traffic was backed up to the Cousins River at the Yarmouth/Freeport town lines for over an hour. Traffic also was reduced to one lane. At 8:39 a.m., another rear-end crash occurred at mile 17 southbound in the slowed traffic, but neither of these vehicles were towed and both drivers were uninjured, Hinkley reported. Damage was minimal and may be non-reportable, he said. Traffic continued to be snarled and slow going down to mile 8 southbound as the congested traffic took a while to clear in the heavy morning traffic. Following distances contributed to both crashes, Hinkley said.

Public Health Division unveils site for food service inspection reports This week, the Portland Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Division announced that food service inspection reports for local restaurants and other food service providers will be available online at the city’s website, http://www. “With Portland’s growing reputation as a foodie destination, it is important that tourists and residents alike are able to enjoy dining in establishments that are safe and clean, which is why we want people to be able to check inspection reports and understand what they mean so they can make good choices as to where to dine,” said Michael Russell, Environmental Health & Safety Program Manager, in a press release. “We also know that restaurant owners and chefs want to do the right thing and are eager for the guidance we can provide. By working together, we are able to both protect the public’s health and support an important local industry.” The Environmental Health & Safety Program has also established a dedicated Food Service Inspections line at 756-8365 for current establishments and new start-ups to ask food service questions or request an inspection. Also, in order to better support food service establishments in complying with the requirement to have at least one Certified Food Protection Manager on staff, the city will be offering affordable Certified Food Protection Manager classes beginning in July. The city’s Environmental & Health Safety program is comprised of two inspectors, the press release stated.

The SBA can play an important role in helping small businesses and I’m confident Seth will be able to put those resources to work in New England.  I can’t think of a better person for this job.” Goodall is an attorney who previously co-owned a landscaping company that he helped grow into a multi-million dollar business that now employees 15 year-round and 30 seasonal employees, according to the press release. Goodall will leave his State Senate seat at the end of the current legislative session to assume his new position at the SBA, the press release stated. Goodall’s website notes that he was elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2010 to the Maine State Senate. He co-founded Goodall Landscaping, now of Topsham, with his brother, Ben. A graduate of University of Maine School of Law, he served as co-chair of the Legislature’s Natural Resources Committee and member of the Legal and Veterans Affairs Committee. He also served as a member of the Maine Economic Growth Council, according to his website.

Bill to help veterans who are victims of sexual assault passes U.S. House The U.S. House on Tuesday unanimously passed a bill written by U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, aimed at making it easier for veterans who survive military sexual assault to get benefits, Pingree’s office announced. The bill, which enjoyed broad bipartisan support, is the first legislation addressing the issue of military sexual assault to pass in this Congress, a press release stated. “The Ruth Moore Act will make Pingree a big difference in the lives of tens of thousands of veterans who are survivors of sexual assault in themilitary and are struggling to get the benefits they are owed,” Pingree said after the

vote. “Almost every day we hear from another veteran who is fighting for their benefits and has been repeatedly turned down because they are being held to an unreasonably high standard of proof.” Pingree’s bill pushes the VA to make a policy change that would make it easier for veterans to qualify for benefits, the press release stated. Under Pingree’s proposal, veterans would only have to show a medical diagnosis of a mental health condition and a link between an assault and that mental health condition — similar to standards applied to veterans who file claims for combat-related PTSD. “Veterans who have suffered this horrific crime must be completely confident the Department of VeteransAffairs will provide the care, assistance and support these victims deserve,” said Republican Congressman Jeff Miller, the Chair of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. “VA’s approach to military sexual trauma claims requires immediate andthoughtful review, and that is precisely what the Ruth Moore Act aims to ensure. I’m proud to join Rep. Pingree, Ranking Member Michaud and a bipartisan majority of Congress in supporting this bill.” The bill is named for Ruth Moore, a Maine veteran who fought for 23 years for disability benefits after her sexual assault. “This is an incredibly important day for the thousands and thousands of veterans who have been fighting for the benefits they are owed,” Moore said. “Since this bill was introduced I’ve heard from over 15,000 veterans who have been in the same situation as me. This bill will change their lives.” Similar legislation sponsored by Sen. Jon Tester is scheduled to be taken up by the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs next week.  

N. Yarmouth man wins fellowship

U.S. Sen. Angus King Jr., I-Maine, congratulated Seamus Connolly of North Yarmouth for receiving a prestigious 2013 National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship. Connolly earned the fellowship for his accomplishments and excellence in traditional Irish fiddle music, King noted in a press release. He will travel to Washington, D.C. with this year’s eight other fellows in late September for an awards ceremony at the Library of Congress and will perform in concert at George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium. “NEA fellowships are the nation’s highest honor in folk and traditional arts, and Seamus’s accomplishments as an Irish fiddler demonstrate a deep and sincere passion for sharing music in celebration of the rich Irish cultural heritage it represents,” King said. “Maine is lucky to have him as a member of our diverse and talented artisan community.”

Talk today about harnessing creativity in employees explores keys to success By Timothy Gillis


Executives at most companies agree that hiring creative people is a boost for business. The challenges often arrive after these clever types start working, with bosses not knowing how to tap into that creativity while still providing a supportive and sensible structure. The Maine Center for Creativity is teaming up with the University of Southern Maine to address these issues, at a talk today by the leader of a Maine research lab. Since 2008, MCC and USM have collaborated on the Creative Toolbox seminar series, which is designed to provide resources, advice, and insight to Maine’s creative entrepreneurs and business leaders. Edison Liu, M.D., president and CEO of Jackson Laboratory, a nonprofit genetics research institute based in Bar Harbor, values the creative worker and instills this philosophy into his own company. Jean Maginnis, executive director of the Maine Center for Creativity, said that way of thinking is one of the reasons he was asked him to be a speaker is their program. “We identified two of the big things that will make a difference, in companies and the community,” she said. “They are: 1) the people and how you lead them and 2) the culture of your company — that is, the place, the space, and the environment. He is an expert in both.” In addition to being a doctor and a researcher, Liu is also a jazz pianist. He tickles the ivory at his company on a regular basis, and encourages his employees to share their own artistic pursuits during a weekly talent show. “I had the privilege of meeting him at the Jackson Lab and hear him play piano at what he calls the Right Brain Café on a Friday,” Maginnis said. “He invites the Jackson Lab employees to jam with him and each other. He leads a lot of scientists and researchers, but they are also musicians, painters, and poets. Being a musician himself, he understood the importance of how the arts really create that space in your mind where you can do creative prob-

lem-solving and imagine new solutions.” In what is being billed as “Part One” of MCC’s Creative Toolbox Capitalizing on Creativity series, Liu, the renowned doctor, researcher, business leader and creative thinker, will address leadership and creativity in business. Liu’s seminar, titled “Capitalizing on Creativity: How to Lead Creative People,” will answer questions such as “How do you harness the talents of creatives and keep them on track with the goals of the company?” and “How can you foster the right environment that encourages new ideas?” “We thought he would be a great speaker,” Magin-

nis said. “He’s very tuned in to how the arts bring about productivity in the research field.” The mission of the MCC is to promote programs that help the creative economy. “There are a lot of figures in the economy about what’s going down,” Maginnis said, “But the creative economy is going up. Research and development is important to growth, important to our state. To have a leader like Ed not only understand the importance of R&D for growth but also understand the importance of arts to drive that activity, I think it’s phenomenal that he landed in Maine.” Some people think of the creative economy as artists only, but it’s really a much more complex economic driver, she added. The Creative Toolbox Series has been offered two to four times a year, since 2008, collaborating with USM to bring good, high-level information to local businesses. “We’ve had lots of great feedback, including people who tell me these series have helped create work for them,” Maginnis said. “One gentleman told me he makes it a point to attend because three talks in a row have brought work to him.” Liu’s talk seems to come at the right time. Statistics show that ninety percent of businesses agree that creativity should have commercial value, but only 17 percent utilize the talents of their creative people to the fullest, according to Maginnis. “Working with creative people is like herding cats,” she said. “You need organization but not so much structure that it hampers creativity. It’s best to have freedom within boundaries, and important to think about what boundaries are important to bring that project to the next level.”

Creative Toolbox seminar Today’s seminar, sponsored in part by UNUM, is geared toward business leaders, entrepreneurs and creative thinkers, and will take place at the University of Southern Maine’s Glickman Library in Portland from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Pricing for non-members is $35, though attendees can become a member of the Maine Center for Creativity for the price of admission and receive their first seminar free. Admission is $15 for MCC members, USM alumni, nonUSM students with student ID. USM students with ID will be given free admission.

High-end exhibit attracts wide range of art lovers By Timothy Gillis


Art fans of all ages, experience, and tastes are flocking to the Portland Museum of Art for the current exhibit, The William S. Paley Collection: A Taste for Modernism, on display from now until Sept. 8. They seem to sense that this is a rare chance to see many of these works in person, which are here on tour from The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Tourists, school groups, and local art buffs have lined up to see the great works, including masterpieces by Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso. Erik Patton, associate director for exhibition planning at MoMA, said “It’s amazing to see this show here and how you can install it slightly differently in different places. When it’s in New York, it fits into the modern canon that MoMA is telling. Here, you can hint at subplots, for example Derain goes with Matisse. It’s harder when you have two massive floors, 30 times the space, in New York. You can’t tell it in the same intimate way you can here.” The exhibition of modern art showcases 61 works from the renowned William S. Paley Collection at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Paley was a formative and innovative leader in the radio and television world as President and Chairman of the Board at CBS for decades. With Paley at its helm, CBS nurtured the talents of broadcasting greats including Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite. With his penchant for new technologies in business, Paley was drawn to modern art as a collector. Reactions to the show have been uniformly ecstatic. Sheila Bartlett, of Scarborough, said she was very excited that so many different artists are in one exhibit. “I saw the Picasso show ten years ago,” she said. “But here with different artists next to each other in one show, you can see their differences in their styles. Here, you get a chance to see artists that you wouldn’t go out of your way to see.” Richard and Susan Pickford, of Portland, read reviews of the show in the paper and had to make their way over to it. “What really struck me was the sculptures,” Susan said. “And “The Clown” (by Georges Rouault).” Richard was moved by a painting of Pittsburgh, which was one of the first in Paley’s collection. Paley, inspired by trips abroad to Europe, began to collect art in the 1930s. He filled his homes with works by Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Georges Braque, Paul Cézanne, and Paul Gauguin, among others. Highlights of the exhibition will includes Picasso’s “Boy Leading a Horse,” 1905–1906, André Derain’s “Bridge over the Riou,” 1906, and Gauguin’s “The Seed of the Areoi,” 1892. Francis Morrissey, of Eliot, said, “It looks like a wonderful collection of one man’s love affair with art. Some wonderful works here, particularly Cezanne, nicely presented.” Kenneth Eng, who has a place in South Portland as well as New York City, where he has seen the show in its

other incarnation, said, “A lot of these paintings are old friends.” Eng, who paints, says he is always looking for inspiration. He loves the early paintings of Matisse and Gauguin. “They are not the usual paintings you associate with them, so they are interesting in that regard,” he said. A member of the PMA, Eng said his affinity for the museum is caused by their dedication to excellence. “It’s not just this exhibit. They have had many great exhibits. An advantage that Maine has is that many artists come here to work. My friends from Boston say ‘Why don’t they come to Boston?’” The show is organized into sections including “Pioneering Moderns,” “Modern Rivals” like Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, and “Modern Idiosyncrasies,” with works in this section reflecting the eclectic and subjective nature of the Paley Collection. This is the 18th time the exhibit has been on the road since 1992. The PMA is the only New England venue for the collection’s 2012–2014 North American tour. The exhibition at the PMA is curated by Margaret Burgess, the Susan Donnell and Harry W. Konkel Associate Curator of European Art. Kids from the Breakwater School were relaxing in the lobby chairs after an exhausting tour to the exhibit, and several other floors of the PMA. While never at a loss for words, these children did seem a bit confused over the difference between the Paley Collection and other current shows. Liam said he liked the Medusa statue,

which is part of another exhibit, but Tobey thought the paintings in the Paley Collection were “really cool.” Jackson said the exhibit was “exciting” and Lucy said the paintings “almost look real.” In perhaps the strongest praise, the kids all agreed that the exhibit was as awesome as the planetarium.

As long as you’re moving, you’re going places. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s an enthusiasm in your body. You’re light on your feet and ready to dance, fight, run or fly. You are living the Jimi Hendrix lyric: “Excuse me while I kiss the sky.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

Argumentative males, aggressive drivers and other intense energies may be part of the day’s challenges. The good news is that your peaceful position and personal sunshine will melt the opposition. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You often overlook your many stellar qualities because you’re so busy trying to build on them. But at times like this, when you’re so hard on yourself, it’s important to remember that people love you just the way you are. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may be slightly spacey in the morning, and you’ll require more motivation than usual to get into gear. Rekindle an interest that used to put you in a good mood. There’s new energy to mine there. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Caution and precaution prevent burnout. What dangers do you need to ward against? What inconveniences could you avoid if you thought ahead to future possibilities? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It will be fun to listen to the wild antics, fantastic schemes and out-there ideas of your craziest friends, and their escapades will be especially interesting today.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, June 5, the 156th day of 2013. There are 209 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 5, 1963, Britain’s Secretary of State for War, John Profumo, resigned after acknowledging an affair with a call girl, Christine Keeler (who was also involved with a Soviet spy), and lying to Parliament about it; while there was no finding of a security breach, the scandal helped bring down the Conservative government of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. On this date: In 1794, Congress passed the Neutrality Act, which prohibited Americans from taking part in any military action against a country that was at peace with the United States. In 1884, Civil War hero Gen. William T. Sherman refused the Republican presidential nomination, saying, “I will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected.” In 1916, the Arab Revolt against Turkish Ottoman rule began during World War I. In 1933, the United States went off the gold standard. In 1940, during the World War II Battle of France, Germany attacked French forces along the Somme line. In 1947, Secretary of State George C. Marshall gave a speech at Harvard University in which he outlined an aid program for Europe that came to be known as The Marshall Plan. In 1950, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Henderson v. United States, struck down racially segregated railroad dining cars. In 1967, war erupted in the Mideast as Israel raided military aircraft parked on the ground in Egypt; Syria, Jordan and Iraq entered the conflict. In 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles’ Ambassador Hotel after claiming victory in California’s Democratic presidential primary. Gunman Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was immediately arrested. In 1976, 14 people were killed when the Teton Dam in Idaho burst. In 1993, country star Conway Twitty died in Springfield, Mo., at age 59. In 2004, Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, died in Los Angeles at age 93 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. Ten years ago: Speaking to American soldiers in Qatar, President George W. Bush argued the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was justified and pledged that “we’ll reveal the truth” on Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. Five years ago: Defense Secretary Robert Gates ousted Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley and Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne, holding them to account in a historic Pentagon shake-up after embarrassing nuclear mix-ups. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the reputed mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, told a military judge at his arraignment he welcomed the death penalty as a way to martyrdom and ridiculed the proceedings as an “inquisition.” One year ago: Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker beat back a recall challenge, winning both the right to finish his term and a voter endorsement of his strategy to curb state spending. Science-fiction author Ray Bradbury, 91, died in Los Angeles.

Dear Annie: I have worked for many years at a small family-owned company. I believe my boss has been the victim of a scam, but I can’t tell her. For several years, my boss has been communicating with a gentleman who claims to be Nigerian. He keeps telling her he is supposed to come to America in the near future and will bring her a check for $40 million. I don’t see it happening. There are three people sending this man money. By now, they have probably given him more than $100,000. When I am at work, my boss asks whether the man has sent any emails, and if not, she wants me to write to him. Every few weeks, he says the trip has to be postponed, and then he needs more money for a new ticket. How do I tell her I don’t want to be involved with this any longer? -- Seeing a Scam Dear Seeing: The “Nigerian scam” has been around for a very long time, and we are surprised people still fall for it. This man will never come to this country with $40 million, but he’s certainly doing a good job of collecting money from naive people like your boss. Not only should you stop contacting this man, but you also should protect your boss by informing her that this is a scam and she should report it to the local FBI office or register a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Of course, if she chooses to ignore you and contact him on her own, there is nothing you can do. Some people have to learn the hard way. Dear Annie: My husband and I live on a quiet dead-end street. Quiet, that is, until the neighbors rev up their Harleys. They have two motorcycles that have been altered to be much louder than the factory intended. These neighbors often come home well after midnight and sometimes leave early on Sunday mornings, making it impossible to sleep with our bed-

room window open. When they travel back and forth during the day, the thunderous noise is quite disturbing. I realize that some Harley owners feel that the loud pipes and leather are a form of prestige, but I wonder whether they ever consider their neighbors. Please, Harley owners, pipe down! -- Hate Those Harleys Dear Hate: Have you asked your neighbors directly whether they would please muffle the noise until they are out on the open road? Does your neighborhood have a noise ordinance prohibiting such volume at certain hours? Is there a neighborhood association to resolve conflicts? Don’t give up without first checking to see whether you have any recourse in the matter. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Helpless, Tired Granny,” who is raising her four grandchildren, and two of them are terribly messed up. That letter moved me. My two oldest sons were wonderful little boys, but something changed in middle school, and they became rebellious and angry. They would skip school and run away. They were so out of control that we could not have family events. Counseling didn’t work until we took our older boy to a psychiatrist when he began using drugs. They eventually were both diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Now, even though we still have our ups and downs, we have our happy family back, and my sons are preparing for their futures. My suggestion for “Helpless” is to get help. She should get a referral to a psychiatrist and find out whether her local health department has a program for grandparents in her situation. Government programs have a lot to offer, but you have to ask. She needs to be strong. -- Been There

Fort Hood suspect says rampage was to defend Taliban leaders By Manny Fernandez

the judge again asked him to explain the facts supporting his defense, and he said he preferred to submit his thoughts in written form. “I don’t want to brainstorm in front of the court,” he told her. But the judge pressed him further. She asked if he was defending one person or a group of people, and he said it was the group of leaders of the Taliban in Afghanistan, including Mullah Omar. The judge asked him to explain the connection between the Taliban leaders and the people whom he was accused of murdering and attempting to murder. “They’re part of the United States military,” he said. The judge delayed the start of jury selection, which had been set to begin on Wednesday, to give Major Hasan one day to find the legal authority to apply such a defense to his case. He was ordered to submit a brief to the judge by Wednesday morning, and Army prosecutors were asked to submit their own brief in response. She did not rule on whether to grant Major Hasan’s request for a delay, but instead set another hearing for Wednesday afternoon to further discuss the “defense of others” issue after the court papers are filed. The defense of others, a common legal strategy used in criminal cases, requires a defendant to prove that he used force against an aggressor to protect a person or a group of people from being harmed or killed by that aggressor. In this case, Major Hasan is claiming that he was protecting Taliban leaders from death by using deadly force against Fort Hood military personnel deploying to Afghanistan. Experts in military law called his theory ludicrous, and even Colonel Osborn seemed to question whether Major Hasan had any facts or evidence to support his defense. At one point, she said she was surprised that

he could not explain the facts to support his defense after years of assisting his lawyers in his case. Military legal experts said the theory may have been the primary reason he has split from his Army defense team, because they believe his lawyers were aware that such a defense has no merit. Major Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others at the Fort Hood base on Nov. 5, 2009. He could face the death penalty if convicted. His role in the attack has never been in dispute, and much of the courtroom activity at his pretrial hearings in recent months has centered on procedural matters. In the past, he had offered to plead guilty to the charges. Military law prohibits defendants charged in capital punishment cases from pleading guilty, and it was unlikely that Army prosecutors would drop their pursuit of the death penalty in order for him to plead guilty. In the years leading up to the shooting, Major Hasan had grown more vocal about his opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nearly all of his victims were military personnel. There has been no evidence to suggest that he had received any assistance from Taliban leaders in carrying out the attack. But Army prosecutors have said that following the attack, Major Hasan sought to align himself with Islamic extremists. They submitted as evidence the transcript of a telephone conversation he had with a representative of Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based satellite broadcasting network. During the phone call, which took place in 2011 while Major Hasan was being held at the Bell County Jail in nearby Belton, Tex., prosecutors said he pledged allegiance to the Islamic fighters known as mujahedeen.

FORT MEADE, Md. — Adrian Lamo, the former computer hacker who reported Pfc. Bradley Manning to military authorities in May 2010 after Private Manning confided that he had provided vast archives of secret government documents to WikiLeaks, testified at Private Manning’s court-martial on Tuesday that he saw parallels between his own youthful hacking offenses and those of the young

Army intelligence analyst. Mr. Lamo, who testified for about 33 minutes, has been a polarizing figure in the WikiLeaks saga. He is despised by many of Private Manning’s supporters for betraying the trust of a person they see as an important whistle-blower; Mr. Lamo has maintained that turning Private Manning in was the socially responsible thing to do because Private Manning’s wholesale leaking recklessly endangered others. Mr. Lamo, who wore black clothing and sported a



light beard, recounted how Private Manning had sent him an encrypted e-mail from his personal Google e-mail account, and later contacted him via an online chat service around May 20, 2010. The two later connected on Facebook as well, but did not meet in person. Mr. Lamo said he first contacted a government official the day after the first online conversation, while continuing to chat online with Private Manning over the next week – sometimes at his home in California, and sometimes at two nearby Starbucks where there was Internet access. The last chat, he said, was around May 26; soon after, Private Manning was arrested. When Mr. Lamo was 22 — the same age Private Manning was when he sent the information to WikiLeaks — he hacked into the networks of several companies, including The New York Times. He pleaded guilty in 2004 to the offenses and was sentenced to six months of home arrest and two years of probation. He has since become a network threat analyst, and in 1998 he was appointed to a San Francisco government task force on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth issues. During cross-examination, Private Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs, focused on the portions of the chat logs showing that his client had reached out to Mr. Lamo at a time when he was struggling with his own sexual identity, had just spent several months downloading government secrets and sending them to WikiLeaks, and was scared and in turmoil. Mr. Coombs raised the parallels between Private Manning and Mr. Lamo, asking whether, based on their conversations, Mr. Lamo had seen “someone very familiar” to himself, a “young 22-year-old with good intentions like you were?” Mr. Lamo replied, “That was not lost on me.” Asked if Private Manning had represented himself as a person who tried to investigate to find out the truth about matters, Mr. Lamo said, “Something that I could appreciate, yes.” Mr. Lamo answered with a simple “yes” to many other questions, like whether Private Manning had described some of the documents as exposing casualties in Iraq and whether he had expressed hope that his disclosures would prompt worldwide discussions and reforms.


KILLEEN, Tex. — Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people, told a judge on Tuesday that he believed he was defending the lives of the Taliban leadership in Afghanistan from American military personnel when he went on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood here in November 2009. Major Hasan’s remarks were the first public explanation about the motive for one of the deadliest mass shootings at an American military base. His comments came a day after the judge granted his request to release his court-appointed military lawyers so that he could represent himself. On Monday, one of Major Hasan’s first legal maneuvers had been to ask the judge, Col. Tara A. Osborn, for a three-month delay for the start of his trial, scheduled to begin on July 1. His primary reason in asking for the delay was to change his defense to “a defense of others,” but he had not elaborated on the identity of the “others.” At a new hearing on Tuesday, Colonel Osborn asked him pointedly whom he was defending. “The leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban,” he said, specifically naming Mullah Muhammad Omar, the founder of the Islamic insurgent group. His comments, delivered in a soft, matter-of-fact tone, stunned many in the courtroom. Seated in the gallery behind him were Army soldiers, military police officers and relatives of some of his victims. Colonel Osborn then asked him to explain his defense, and Major Hasan asked for a recess to gather his thoughts. When the hearing resumed a few minutes later,

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.

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 planning/pubart.asp.

In this depiction of an aging warrior’s return home, Titus Andronicus is a masterful examination of power, corruption, loyalty to family and to country, and the lengths to which one man will go to right a horrifying wrong. 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.
