Duchess of Cambridge Gives Birth to a Boy LONDON — With royal fanfare tweeted instantly around the world, Buckingham Palace on Monday announced the birth of a boy to Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, placing a framed proclamation on an easel at the palace gates. “Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4:24 today,” the statement proclaimed, more than four hours after the birth. “Her royal highness and the child are both doing well.” A palace statement said the child weighed eight pounds six ounces and that William had been present. Mother and baby would remain in the hospital overnight. No name was immediately announced. The child is third in line to the throne. His birth gives the royal family three generations of heirs to the throne for the first time since Queen Victoria’s rule.

SAYWHAT...

I don’t dislike babies, though I think very young ones rather disgusting.” — Queen Victoria

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s push to restart an economic conversation with the American public this week is a clear indication of how often world events, his Republican adversaries and his own competing agenda have conspired to knock him off that subject. It may also be a reflection of how little the president — any president — can do to alter the country’s economic trajectory while he is faced with global forces that shape the financial system in the United States, as well as a domestic political system that has ground to a standstill, particularly over economic issues like taxes and spending. The new public relations effort, which begins with a major address Wednesday and as many as six economic-themed speeches over the next two months, is intended to give Mr. Obama a chance to claim credit for the improving economy and

to lift his rhetoric beyond the Beltway squabbles that have often consumed his presidency. But the speeches will not contain big new proposals, senior administration officials said Monday, speaking to reporters on the condition that they not be quoted. Nor are they designed to break the hardening stalemate on economic issues between a president and his Republican adversaries in Congress. Instead, they will repackage economic proposals that the president has offered for years — sometimes in new formats, the officials said. “The point is to chart a course for where America needs to go,” Dan Pfeiffer, the president’s senior adviser, said in an e-mail to the president’s supporters Sunday night. Officials said that course has improved significantly during Mr. Obama’s administration, giving Americans a sense of stability, if not complete economic security.

HONG KONG — A series of earthquakes in Gansu Province in northwestern China set off landslides and building collapses in an impoverished mountainous region Monday, killing at least 75 people, injuring more than 600 and prompting President Xi Jinping to order “allout rescue efforts.” The Gansu Provincial Seismological Bureau estimated the magnitude of the main earthquake at 6.6. The United States Geological

Survey listed three fairly strong earthquakes in Gansu Province on Monday morning but none quite that powerful, with preliminary magnitudes of 5.9, 5.6 and 4.7. The quakes took place along the border between Minxian County and Zhangxian County, both in the south of Gansu Province. Most of the deaths and injuries occurred in Minxian County, and all of the missing were there.

A.C.L.U. urges inquiries in the shooting of man tied to Boston suspect

WASHINGTON (NY TIMES) — The American Civil Liberties Union on Monday urged local law enforcement officials in Florida and Massachusetts to open investigations into how an F.B.I. agent killed a man who was being interrogated in his Orlando apartment about the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. In letters to the attorney general of Massachusetts and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the A.C.L.U. said the public had little faith in the F.B.I.’s ability to investigate itself. The letters cited a recent article by The New York Times, which said that from 1993 to 2011, the F.B.I. deemed its agents’ use of force justified in the 150 instances in which an F.B.I. agent fatally shot or wounded someone. The Times based its findings on investigation reports obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

South Portland planners to meet on anti-tar sands ordinance By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

At the request of the South Portland City Council, a Waterfront Protection Ordinance by opponents of Canadian tar sands oil will come before the South Portland Planning Board tonight. The planning board will meet in the South Portland City Council chambers at 7 p.m. to take up the contentious issue of allowing diluted bitumen oil — also known as tar sands oil — into South Portland from Canada through a local pipeline company’s infrastructure. On Monday, Aug. 5, the South Port-

land City Council will decide either to place the Waterfront Protection Ordinance on the Nov. 5 election ballot or to adopt the ordinance outright, according to Natalie E. West, attorney for Concerned Citizens of South Portland, the group spearheading the signature drive to curtail tar sands transport through a citizen’s initiative process. The city council has asked for planners’ review, West wrote in a July 18 letter to the planning board regarding tonight’s meeting. Concerned Citizens of South Portland delivered 3,779 signatures — four times the number of signatures needed — to the South Portland City

Clerk to qualify their anti-tar sands Waterfront Protection Initiative for the November ballot. The signatures were collected in 11 days, the group noted. The citizen’s initiative would change South Portland’s zoning ordinance to block the oil industry from constructing two 70-foot smokestacks on the pier next to Bug Light and other oil infrastructure in order to export tar sands oil out of Casco Bay. The initiative was developed to protect air quality, public health, property values and a sustainable economy for the city, the group reported. West noted that more than 400

people attended a City Council workshop in March “to express concern about extraction of tar sands oil and the possibility that tar sands oil would be piped to our community, stored near our schools, and loaded on tankers near our park and community college.” South Portland’s “Shipyard” zone and a “Commercial” zone where petroleum uses along the industrial waterfront are allowed both would fall under the the Waterfront Protection Ordinance, West said. No pending applications or existing permits would be affected by the ordinance, West added.

Portland man dies of drowning in Casco Bay Daily Sun Staff Reports The drowning victim who was pulled from Casco Bay by the Portland Fire Department Marine Division Friday evening was Patrick Flynn, 49 of Portland, the city reported Monday. WGME-13 reported that Flynn and his girlfriend were swimming under the bridge last Friday night when Flynn started to be pulled out by a strong current. He was recovered by a fireboat crew about 30 minutes later. Flynn died at Maine Medical Center, the news station reported.

Rally on Thursday seeks to mark Kalamazoo spill On Saturday, activists with 350Maine.org staged a Sebago Lake Flotilla in protest of tar sands oil, raising the opposition to the possibility of Canadian diluted bitumen being piped into South Portland. On Thursday, July 25, at 6 p.m., 350Maine.org plans to participate in a rally, the Kalamazoo Anniversary Rally, at the Portland Water District, co-sponsored with Environment Maine and the Natural Resources Council of Maine. Organizers frequently point to the Kalamazoo River spill as evidence of the dangers of tar sands. “On July 25, 2010 over 1 million gallons of tar sands oil spilled from a 41 year old pipeline in to the Kalamazoo River in Michigan. The spill has devastated the environment and local businesses. The spill is still being cleaned up and has already cost nearly $1 billion,” the event Facebook page states. A National Transportation Safety Board pipeline accident report in 2012 — “Enbridge Incorporated Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Rupture and Release, Marshall, Michigan, July 25, 2010” — referred to the July 25, 2010 pipeline rupture in a wetland in Marshall, Mich. “The rupture occurred during the last stages of a planned shutdown and was not discovered or addressed for over 17 hours,” the report stated. “During the time lapse, Enbridge twice pumped additional oil (81 percent of the total release) into Line 6B

during two startups; the total release was estimated to be 843,444 gallons of crude oil. The oil saturated the surrounding wetlands and flowed into the Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River.” Continuing costs exceeded $767 million, the report stated. About 320 people reported symptoms consistent with crude oil exposure. No fatalities were reported. The federal board determined “that the probable cause of the pipeline rupture was corrosion fatigue cracks that grew and coalesced from crack and corrosion defects. ... The NTSB’s examination of the ruptured pipe segment showed that the internal pipe surfaces were free from any apparent corrosion or other visible surface anomalies. Therefore, internal corrosion was not a factor in the rupture of Line 6B. ...” the report added. The National Transportation Safety Board noted that the crude oil release went undetected by the control center for over 17 hours, stating that “the rupture and prolonged release were made possible by pervasive organizational failures at Enbridge Incorporated. ...”

SMCC, partners receive federal grant for fire safety Southern Maine Community College, in collaboration with the Scarborough and Falmouth fire departments, the Maine Fire Marshal’s Office and the Maine Center on Deafness, recently received a $286,368 federal Fire Prevention & Safety grant designed to improve fire safety for Maine families. The group will use the funds to kick off a one-year campaign to offer complete home fire safety checks and provide and install thousands of free smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in the homes of high-risk citizens in southern Maine, SMCC reported. “We are targeting older homes and those with young, elderly, and deaf or hearing-impaired family members,” said Steve Willis, faculty chair of the Fire Science program at SMCC. “We want people to know the keys to fire safety, which are prevention, preparation and escape. With this program we hope to help as many people as possible become more aware, more prepared, and as safe as possible.”

Homeowners in Southern Maine who want to take advantage of the new program should call 730-4298. Assistance will be provided on a first come first serve basis, SMCC reported.

Portland Water District starts water main flushing Water main flushing has begun in Portland and is expected to last until the end of September, the Portland Water District reported. Weekly map schedules can be located at http://www. pwd.org/environment/tapwater/Flushing.php. Customers may notice short periods of water discoloration, but this program

is essential to maintain water quality and public health, the district reported. The Portland Water District generally flushes water mains from April to October. In an effort to reduce customer inconveniences, crews work from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Thursday night, the district reported. This maintenance activity uses a high velocity flow of water in the opposite direction of natural flow to keep the water mains clean and fresh. During flushing, any sediment that may be in the mains is released out of hydrants. If customers experience any change in water quality following maintenance activities or have security concerns regarding Portland Water District employees, they are asked to call 7618310.

Requiem for Detroit

I was in Detroit in 1990 — not my first time — poking around to get a deeper feel for the place so I could write a chapter about it in “The Geography of Nowhere.” At mid-day, I was driving on one of the great avenues that radiates out of the old Beaux Arts fan of streets that emanates from the Grand Circus at the heart of downtown — Woodward or Cass or Gratiot, I forget. It was a six- or eightlaner, and everything along both sides was either some kind of social service installation or vacant. There was no traffic, by which I mean not merely a smooth flow of cars, but no other cars whatsoever. For at least a mile, my renta-car was the only vehicle on the street. Finally I saw another car up ahead, in my ––––– lane, coming straight at me. Kunstler.com It continued bearing down on me, until the last 100 feet or so when it veered around me with an indignant blare of the horn. It was only about then that I noticed a sign indicating that I was on a one-way street. Downtown Detroit was so empty that I could drive a good mile the wrong way without knowing it.

Vicarious tragedy Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, Adam Lanza, Aaron Hernandez, Dzhokhar Tsarnaer, Jovan Belcher, James Eagan Holmes: all young men known to the world because of acts of violence. Does the obsessive media pressure of pounding the details of these murders help society in any way? Does endlessly rebroadcasting the carnage provide any insight beyond grotesque curiosity? Why does an endless loop of footage of a football player wearing a tee shirt over his manacled arms behind him as he is led by police out of his extensive suburban mansion command attention on every media outlet? What do we learn from George Zimmerman’s expression as the verdict is read? Or O.J.’s? Or Casey Anthony’s? It’s drama, vicarious tragedy. People watch and think about their lives in comparison, maybe hug their children closer and vow to protect them better. Regardless of the public reading of the trial process in Florida, the legislation known as “Stand Your Ground” which has become law in some version in twenty-one states certainly deserves scrutiny. President Obama and Attorney General Holder have asked for serious discussion on the merits of these laws. Jan Brewer, Governor of Arizona, has supported the concept as a “constitutionally

Robert Libby –––––

One Man’s Island protected right.” Certainly the concept of self defense is accepted by most reasonable citizens; there is a large body of trial decisions that have found that abused individuals were justified in killing the abuser. The gray area in the interpretation of these statutes revolves around the causes leading to the critical situation of using deadly force. What preceded the lethal act? What actions were taken to avoid a deadly confrontation? What actions might have escalated the situation to a threshold where deadly force might be necessary? Many of us grew up watching westerns where a gunslinger would goad a cowboy or luckless farmer into drawing against him and then shoot him down saying, “You all saw that was self defense.” And that victim was armed even if everyone knew it wasn’t a fair fight. Add to this legal concept of citizenship the disconcerting reality of contemporary America. We live in a society freighted with prejudice and frustration. It is readily

apparent that some individuals and groups feel threatened by other individuals and groups. Consider the events when individuals were attacked for wearing the wrong team logo shirts to a ball game. It seems obvious that many are willing to generalize and jump to conclusions of dangerous intent about others based solely on the complexion of their skin, the way they dress, or the views they express. For many years I used Spike Lee’s movie “Do the Right Thing” as a teaching tool. I recommend it as a thoughtful anecdote about emotions and feelings of personal identity spiraling out of control. It seems that we continually must consider the interaction between individual rights and consideration for the individual rights of others. Representative Marcia Fudge stated clearly, “We can not legislate respect for others.” Respect for others is a value that must be learned in the home, in the schools and churches, and in the community. If we are to have a civil society, we must all recognize that each person is valuable and deserves respect for human dignity.

Pipeline paranoia preventing Portland project New Hampshire and Maine have recently been dragged into a fight over a controversial pipeline project half a continent away. Environmental paranoia could mean fewer jobs, higher energy price, and the end of one of New England’s most responsible businesses. Here in New Hampshire, we’re used to getting national political attention. It’s usually a good thing. Unfortunately, New Hampshire and Maine have recently been dragged into the fight over a controversial pipeline project half a continent away The Portland-Montreal Pipeline runs 236 miles from Portland, Maine, through Northern New Hampshire, and up to Montreal. Since 1941, it has carried over 168 billion gallons of various grades of crude oil from tankers docked in Portland to the refineries in Montreal. Portland Pipe Line Corporation has won numerous national awards for worker safety, environmental safety, and maritime protec-

tion. But after 72 years of delivering energy, jobs, and taxes, the Portland-Montreal Pipeline has been targeted by national environmental groups. What these groups really oppose is Phase 4 of the Keystone Pipeline, known as Keystone XL. The first two phases of Keystone are up and running, and the third will come online later this year. But the final stage, 1,179 miles of pipeline connecting oil fields in Alberta, Montana, and North Dakota to the Gulf Coast refineries, has drawn fierce opposition from environmentalists. Only recently has it become commercially viable to extract crude oil and natural gas from the oil sand formations in Alberta and from shale deposits in Montana and North Dakota. Bringing that oil to market created the North Dakota economic boom, one of the few states to see rapid growth through the recession.

Grant Bosse –––––

Guest Columnist

It may soon be cheaper for Montreal to get its crude oil from the West than from tankers docked in Portland. If the Portland-Montreal Pipeline loses its customers, the only two choices would be going out of business or reversing the flow. The Portland Pipe Line Corporation is looking into whether it would viable to ship oil south for export out of Portland. This could ultimately provide access for Alberta crude to a year-round deep water port on the Atlantic, making that oil competitive for export. TransCanada is considering similar options through Vancouver to serve Asia. Environmental groups haven’t been able to stop drilling from oil sands, so now they’re trying to shut down the pipelines that carry that oil to market. They’ve collected enough signatures to put a question on the November ballot in South Portland that would block any expansion or change in oil operations along the waterfront. see BOSSE page 6

In a mere century, all that grandeur had arisen and been erased KUNSTLER from page 4

Detroit’s decline and fall was long and gruesome. Back then, just outside the downtown of 1920s skyscrapers, there were whole neighborhoods of formerly magnificent old mansions in the most amazing states of dilapidation, with sagging porches, chimneys tilting at impossible angles, and whole exterior walls missing to reveal eerie dollhouse-like vignettes of rooms painted different colors, formerly lived in. These were built by the wealthy magnates of the Great Lakes frontier — the timber and copper kings, manufacturers of paint, coal stoves, etc. — before the car industry was even a gleam in Henry Ford’s flinty eye. Over the 1990s they were all torched in the annual Halloween ritual called Devil’s Night. The next time I came back to Detroit, there were wildflower meadows where those ruined mansions had been. In a mere century, all that grandeur had arisen and been erased. The grandest ruin of Detroit is the much-photographed main train station, with its attached office tower. The old neo-classical hulk had been neglected for so many decades that mature ailanthus trees were growing out of the parapets. I was back in downtown Detroit, around Cadillac Square, in the 1990s shooting some “walk-and-talk” for a documentary at rush hour on a weekday evening and it was like the night of the living dead there. The old Hudson’s department store was dark and empty and the Statler Hotel had plywood sheets over every window. (It was demolished in 2005.) We were the only humans in the vicinity at 5:30 p.m. It’s fitting that Detroit is the first great American city to officially bite the dust, because it produced the means of America’s suicidal destruction: the automobile. Of course, you could argue that the motorcar was an inevitable product of the industrial era — and I would not bother to enlist a mob of post-doc philosophy professors to debate that — but the choices we made about what to do with the automobile is another matter. What we chose was to let our great cities go to hell and move outside them in a car-dependent utopia tricked out as a simulacrum of “country living.” The entire experiment of suburbia can, of course, be construed as historically inevitable, too, but is also

destined to be abandoned — and sooner than most Americans realize. Finally, what we’ll be left with is a tremendous continental-sized vista of waste and desolation, the end product of this technological thrill ride called Modernity. It’s hard to find redemption in this story, unless it’s a world made by hand, with all its implications for a return to human-ness. What happened to Detroit will come to all the other great American metroplexes in time, but perhaps not in the same way. So-called urban experts like Ed Glaeser at Harvard (“The Triumph of the City”), and other exalted idiots just don’t get it. These cities attained a scale of operation that just can’t be sustained beyond the twilight of cheap fossil fuels. They will all contract massively — some of them, such as Phoenix and Las Vegas will disappear altogether. The lucky ones will reconstitute themselves at much smaller scale around their old harbors or riverfronts. The ones burdened with too many grandiose mega-structures (New York, Chicago) will choke to death on the liabilities they represent. The reason for this can be found in the basic equations around the cost and supply of energy resources and the consequent impairments of

capital formation. In short, neither the affordable energy nor the money will be there to run things as we’re used to running them. The voodoo economists of the ivy League, the White House, the Federal Reserve, and The New York Times are utterly clueless about how this works. Other idiots want to dedicate the ruins of Detroit, and places like it, to “urban farming.” This represents yet another layer of misunderstanding of how the world works. Detroit and most other cities occupy important geographical sites (in this case a river between two Great lakes). Some kind of urban human settlement will continue to occupy that site in the future. It will just be smaller, less complex, and almost certainly less hideous than the disgraceful tangle of freeways, casinos, 7-Eleven shops, and rotting bungalows that remains on-the-ground there now. Farming is what happens outside the urban settlement (though gardening is another matter). There’s plenty of room in the rest of Michigan for farming. By the way, the vast donut of prosperous suburbs around the ruins of Detroit are not long for this world either. Their wealth will prove to be just as transitory as the wealth embodied by those bygone inner mansion neighborhoods of the pre-1900 Detroit, and the detritus will be harder to clean up there because it is spread so far and wide. That particular lesson remains to be learned all over the rest of the USA, but with crude oil at $108-a-barrel this morning, a smack upside America’s thick-boned head is probably not far from landing. How the legal aspects of Detroit’s bankruptcy get worked out will just be a sideshow outside the main tent of greater industrial era collapse and the practical demographic alterations of everyday life we can look forward to.

Broader mix of energy sources needed to fuel economy BOSSE from page 5

The Obama administration admits that there are no environmental or safety problems with piping oil from oil sands in the same pipelines that have carried traditional crude. The President says he won’t approve Keystone XL if it would substantially increase the greenhouse gas emissions, but a draft State Department report has already concluded that blocking the project would have no effect on the amount of oil coming out of the ground, or on overall carbon emissions. We need a much broader mix of energy sources to fuel the American economy. Wind, solar, and other alternatives are going to be part of that mix. But they are not going to completely replace fossil fuels

any time soon, particularly for our transportation needs. The massive domestic reserves in the western U.S. and Canada are going to get to market, one way or another. Portland Pipe Line Corporation should be allowed to study whether reversing the flow of one of the safest and most dependable pipelines in the nation makes economic and environmental sense. Instead of tankers coming into Portland from Venezuela and the Middle East, we could be filling up tankers with North American oil to complete in the global market. Wouldn’t that be a good thing, both for our energy security and our national security? We can protect our shores, create new jobs, and provide the energy a growing economy needs. And we can do it without building a single new mile of pipeline, through a company with a stellar environmental record over the past seven decades. We should not let pipeline paranoia from radical groups keep us from even considering the idea. (Grant Bosse is a member of the New Hampshire Energy Forum. For details, visit http://www.

Be a bit more considerate in depicting the Rev. Sharpton

Editor, RE: Send in the Clowns (opinion cartoon). I’m a fan of the Sun, and try to read it every day. Sometimes, though, you really tick me off. Take for example the McCoy political cartoon on Friday 7/19: it’s completely outrageous and defamatory! Anyone who has been paying the scantest bit of attention to the scurrilous race-baiting career of “Reverend” Al Sharpton (affiliation questionable) throughout the Tawana Brawley, Freddie’s Fashion Mart, Crown Heights Riots, Duke University Rape Case ad infinitum, and of late, the George Zimmerman trial, would not help but notice how grossly exaggerated the cartoon depicts his obesity. How grossly unfair! In fact, ever since dumping his wife of many years without bothering to acquire a divorce, he has slimmed down considerably from his formerly gro-

tesque porkulent self as he re-entered the dating game. He is often seen in many a ritzy watering hole dressed to the nines with delectable 20-somethings as arm-candy hanging on his every utterance. How a poor man of the cloth such as he affords memberships in NYC’s toniest clubs, multiple rent-controlled apartments, tax-free vacation property in the D.R., and an endless wardrobe of GQ high fashion attire on a poor preacher’s salary, only he and his God know. One thing we do know: having a fully packed carpetbag ready to jet off to the latest racist outrage at a moment’s notice when the Red D.C. phone rings must have its bennies. Other than that, the cartoon sums things up nicely. So keep up the good work; just try to be a bit more considerate next time. Fred Writt Portland

Rally for Trayvon Martin appeals for justice By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

On Monday, nine days after a “not guilty” verdict for defendant George Zimmerman sparked protests and rallies in memory of shooting victim Trayvon Martin, the NAACP Portland Branch and a host of other groups offered prayers and words of hope at an afternoon rally in Monument Square. “Our thoughts are with Sybrina Fulton (Martin’s mother), Tracy Martin (Martin’s father) and every other parent who has lost a child to violence,” said Rachel Talbot Ross, president of the NAACP Portland Branch, in a statement. “It is time to come together as a community to heal, to remember, and to actively work on changes long overdue to end these senseless tragedies and ensure that our justice system is equitable and fair for all.” Martin, an African-American, was shot by Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, on the night of Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman, a part-time student at Seminole State College and a neighborhood watch captain at the Retreat at Twin Lakes gated community in Sanford, was found not guilty by a jury on July 13. The verdict sparked a number of protests, some of them violent, and spurred a national debate about race, gun violence, public safety and the criminal justice system. Speaking before an overflow crowd in Monument Square, Rabbi Akiva Herzfeld of Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh in Portland offered a prayer and a plea for social change. “Trayvon Martin’s life was ended, and with the cries calling out for justice, it’s not justice directed against one person, it’s justice among all of us and all of our society, a society that continues to discriminate in many different ways, a society that continues to imprison minorities in a much greater rate than the rest of the country,” Herzfeld said as part of an interfaith memorial prayer. The Rev. Marvin Ellison of Portland, Presbyterian minister and president of the Religious Coalition Against Discrimination, issued a prayer, stating, “We give thanks for this gathering of fiercely tender warriors for peace and justice. Sanford, Fla., and Portland, Maine and cities and towns in between and all across this globe are not always safe for people of color, recent immigrants, for the homeless, LGBT persons ...” and other vulnerable populations. Talbot Ross told the crowd, “On the local level, there are a number of ways to get involved. One is to make sure your municipality has a racial profiling ordinance on the books, that will not allow good public policing to be compromised by profiling.” Portland, Westbrook and Lewiston are Maine communities that have these ordinances. she said. The NAACP Portland Branch was joined by the ACLU of Maine, Center for African Heritage, Centro Latino Maine, EqualityMaine, Hispanic Ministry of Portland, Maine Council of Churches, Maine Immigrant Rights Coalition, Maine Interfaith Youth Alliance, Maine League of Young Voters, Maine People’s Alliance, Maine Women’s Lobby, Southern Maine Workers’ Center and the Unity Project.

den, EqualityMaine; Larry Gilbert, Coalition for a Safer Maine; youth leaders with the NAACP King Fellows Program; and other community and faith leaders from around the state. Judi Richardson with Remembering Darien attended — Richardson’s daughter, Darien, was shot in her sleep by a masked intruder in January of 2010. She survived the shooting, but died three weeks later from a blood clot that formed in her leg because of a gunshot wound. The homicide remains unsolved. The Richardsons have met with lawmakers and advocated for background checks on private sales of guns. Monday’s rally focused on violence, the criminal justice system, racial profiling, education and public safety. Getachew Yoseph, a native of Ethiopia, said he attended the rally because he believes in the U.S. Constitution and its guarantee that “all men are created equal.” “I don’t care if they’re white or black, we want our sons alive,” he said.

Firefighters train for a worst-case scenario with bail-out drills By Craig Lyons THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

ABOVE AND BELOW: To help get a better grasp on ways to escape a burning building, Portland firefighters practiced using ladders and ropes to make a quick exit from the upper floors of a structure. The exercise took place Monday on Elm Street in a building that was made available to the fire department. (CRAIG LYONS PHOTOS)

The Portland Fire Department got a chance to learn some new techniques Monday night but hope to never have to use them. Firefighters practiced bailing out of a multi-unit building on Elm Street to train in case they should be trapped on the upper floors of a building with no other means to escape but through the window. “It is worst-case scenario training today,” said Capt. Keith Gautreau. “It’s something we should always be prepared for.” Firefighters practice two methods to escape the upper floors of a building: sliding down a ladder or rapelling down the side using ropes. Gautreau said the tactics would only be necessary in an incident where a firefighter is either trapped by fire or structural damage prevents any other means of exiting a building. “It’s good for us to have this training,” he said, noting that fatalities in an incident where a firefighter is trapped in a building aren’t infrequent. It’s possible that these escape tactics are needed because the city’s housing stock consists of three- or four-unit, wood frame buildings that can burn rapidly, Gautreau said. Chief Jerome LaMoria said it’s not often the department has access to a building for training, and when the city received use of the Elm Street building, he said it was a chance to teach the bailout strategies. The Elm Street building used for the training represents the majority of Portland’s downtown housing stock, LaMoria said, and is representative of the buildings where more serious fires occur. Capt. Phil McGouldrick said conducting training like the bailout techniques can be difficult since the department doesn’t have a training facility, so they were fortunate to have use of the Elm Street building.

a gutter ball is only a couple of feet. If you lose today, it will be a near-miss situation. So correct your approach and keep trying. You have this. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll spend time in the land of business, where the main concerns have to do with sales, leads, revenues and profits. You’re becoming increasingly comfortable with a deal -- keep working on it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be lucky when you relate to older people. Someone with silver in her hair has gold in her heart that she’ll share with you when you make the effort to reach out. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are not interested in making anyone feel bad about themselves in comparison to you. So your style is not to say anything about your accomplishments unless asked -- and even then you’ll downplay them. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 23). You exhibit amazing flexibility and will stretch to handle many projects at once. In order to keep from being overburdened, end one project before you start another and get rid of responsibilities along the way. You’ll win a prize in the next 10 weeks. In September, you’ll be paid well for your work and in more ways than just money. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 4, 23, 40 and 11.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The knowledge you obtain only makes you want to know more. This interest will soon turn into a passion, and the passion will very quickly make you an expert. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A pecking order is being established, and you may not agree with it. Why, you wonder, should anyone get pecked? Your presence will change this order but not deactivate it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is said that “love enters through the eyes.” Whether this love is fresh or came about many years ago, your eyes will be delighted by the sight of a certain someone. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some believe that saying “I love you” actually dilutes the emotion instead of conveying it. Today you will act to show, not tell, your love. The message will ring out loud and clear. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Too much introspection all at once gets wearying. Do something, preferably unrelated to what’s on your mind. Solve an entirely different problem, and you’ll find that the first issue moves along in a good direction. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are good reasons to hold back the floodgates of personal confession, the primary one being that it’s just not cool. Ask yourself who will benefit from learning this something about yourself, and proceed only if the answer is too compelling not to. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not looking for ways to increase your popularity and social success, and yet you’ll naturally gravitate to the habits that attract people. You’ll gain friends whether you want them or not. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Family banter is often less than supportive, but the presence of an outsider can curb that, as everyone acts a little nicer when there’s a witness. Besides, it’s just bad form to bicker in front of a stranger. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In bowling, the difference between a strike and

Rip Van Winkle has some redeeming qualities to make up for his lack of ambition, and one of them may be that he loves your daughter a great deal. Please try to focus on those good qualities and accept her decision with grace and fortitude. Dear Annie: I recently asked a good friend to accompany me to a store where I needed to make a return. I wasn’t sure the manager would be cooperative and wanted my friend for support. She declined. I was hurt and now wonder whether she is as good of a friend as I thought. I would have done it for her had she asked. Am I making too much of this? -- What Are Friends For? Dear What: Yes. Your friend may have her own issues about returning items, and this particular request may have made her terribly uncomfortable. Our friends cannot be all things to us. If she is otherwise good to you, please let her off the hook for this type of activity. Dear Annie: I had to respond to “Frustrated Cook,” who admonished children who were picky eaters. My son was like that. Rather than create tension, I decided to cook what he would eat, even if it meant cooking a different dish. I remember my relatives giving me “the look” because they thought I was enabling him and that it was my fault he had such a limited palate. As an adult, he is still picky, but now he can explain it to me. He says the texture of certain foods has always been a huge issue for him. He will now try different foods within limits. But he has expressed his gratitude to me for not forcing him to eat or go without. To my relatives and others out there, don’t judge unless you know the whole story. -Happy Mom and Son

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My daughter has been dating the same guy for 11 years. Three years ago, she purchased a townhouse, and he moved in. He has terrible sleep habits. He claims his “internal sleep clock” is not in sync with the rest of the world. He stays up most nights playing on his computer and has a difficult time waking in the morning. He then spends his weekends trying to catch up on his sleep, staying in bed until late afternoon. He claims this is why he has yet to complete his college degree. He has a dead-end job because they tolerate his hours. My daughter has done research on sleep disorders and offered him names of doctors and clinics in the area that specialize in helping people, but he refuses to go. My daughter has a fantastic job. She is intelligent, beautiful, outgoing and fun, and has a wide circle of friends who apparently make up for what she doesn’t get from Rip Van Winkle. This lopsided relationship is not what I had hoped for her. She deserves so much more. She and I have had many discussions about this, and at one point it negatively affected our relationship. Since then, I’ve tried to keep my thoughts to myself. She recently told me that Rip expects to inherit some money from an aunt who recently died. He claims he will use the money to buy an engagement ring and pay for online college classes. Frankly, I would prefer she never marry him. How do I prepare myself to react to a possible engagement? -- Sleepyhead’s Mother-In-Law-To-Be Dear SMILTB: Sleep disorders can be serious, but the fact that Rip Van Winkle has no interest in seeing a doctor means he would rather maintain the status quo. You already know your daughter isn’t inclined to listen to your opinions about this guy. So practice smiling in front of the mirror, because there isn’t much else you can do. We hope

Water district responds to St. John St. for break in 100-year-old main By David Carkhuff

A Portland Water District crew works to fix a broken water main on Congress Street in front of the Inn at St. John Monday. A 1908era pipe broke, cutting off water service to 20 properties in the area. (DAVID CARKHUFF PHOTO)

THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

A Monday morning leak on Congress Street in a 6-inch water main forced closure and the detour of traffic on the southbound lane on Congress between Valley and St. John and left about 20 customers without water, said Michelle Clements, spokeswoman for the Portland Water District. Clements said Monday that she expected service and traffic flow to resume as normal by this morning. Maine Medical Center did not lose water; the Inn on St. John and Hong Kong Market were a couple of the businesses affected, as well as many residents, Clements said. The pipe broke about 6 a.m. Monday. The police called the water district to notify the water utility. A large section of pipe had to be repaired, Clements said. “That 6-inch water main is over 100 years old, it’s a 1908 (main),” she said. “There was some damage to the sidewalk, a portion of the sidewalk did collapse and some water entered a couple of basements,” Clements said. No cost estimate on the repair was available.

As Jennifer learns from her brother and sister-in-law, and her mother’s colleagues, students, and community leaders of the impact Doris has made on their lives, Jennifer wonders if there is any hope of recovering the love she has chosen to isolate herself and her two young daughters from. If Doris survives, will Jennifer ever be able to repair the damage she has caused and give her daughters the grandmother’s love they

deserve?” For more information, contact Michelle Whitman at michelle@keymgc.com.

Christmas in July at St. Augustine’s in OOB

1 p.m. to 4 p.m. St. Augustine’s Anglican Church will be offering a celebration of Christmas in July, taking place in Memorial Park at the gazebo in Old Orchard Beach. There will be the telling of the story of Christmas by St. Nicholas along with the singing of beloved carols. When we think of ‘Christmas’ we think of snow and gift giving. In the middle of summer we sometimes forget the joy of Christ’s birth and all of our wonderful Christmas traditions. This should be a popular and fun event for all. The program is family oriented calling upon members of the parish to do Biblical readings and providing the music. Those who gather are welcome to bring a picnic or snacks and the music is for all to sing.”
