Timing a rise in sea level

(NY Times) — Thirtyfive years ago, a scientist named John H. Mercer issued a warning. By then it was already becoming clear that human emissions would warm the earth, and Dr. Mercer had begun thinking deeply about the consequences. His paper, in the journal Nature, was titled “West Antarctic Ice Sheet and CO2 Greenhouse Effect: A Threat of Disaster.” In it, Dr. Mercer pointed out the unusual topography of the ice sheet sitting over the western part of Antarctica. Much of it is below sea level, in a sort of bowl, and he said that a climatic warming could cause the whole thing to degrade rapidly on a geologic time scale, leading to a possible rise in sea level of 16 feet. While it is clear by now that we are in the early stages of what is likely to be a substantial rise in sea level, we still do not know if Dr. Mercer was right about a dangerous instability that could cause that rise to happen rapidly, in geologic time. We may be getting closer to figuring that out. An intriguing new paper comes from Michael J. O’Leary of Curtin University in Australia and five colleagues scattered around the world. Dr. O’Leary has spent more than a decade exploring the remote western coast of Australia, considered one of the best places in the world to study sea levels of the past. The paper, published July 28 in Nature Geoscience, focuses on a warm period in the earth’s history that preceded the most recent ice age. In that epoch, sometimes called the Eemian, the planetary temperature was similar to levels we may see in coming decades as a result of human emissions, so it is considered a possible indicator of things to come. Examining elevated fossil beaches and coral reefs along more than a thousand miles of coast, Dr. O’Leary’s group confirmed something we pretty much already knew. In the warmer world of the Eemian, sea level stabilized for several thousand years at about 10 to 12 feet above modern sea level.

Bulger guilty in gangland grimes, including murder ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

BOSTON (NY Times) — James (Whitey) Bulger, the mobster who terrorized South Boston in the 1970s and ‘80s while he led the notorious Winter Hill Gang, was found guilty on Monday of a sweeping array of gangland crimes, including 11 murders. Bulger, 83, faces life in prison. But the jury found the government had not proved its case against him in seven

murders, and in one case it made no finding, leading to gasps inside the courtroom by relatives of those murder victims and explosive scenes outside the court. “My father just got murdered again 40 years later in that courtroom,” said the son of William O’Brien, whose name is also William. When Bulger was led from the court-

room, he gave a thumbs-up sign to a few of his family members who were seated behind him, prompting a woman sitting with relatives of victims to yell out, “Rat a tat Whitey.” As a clerk read the verdicts in the lengthy and complicated list of charges, Mr. Bulger looked away from the jury and showed no reaction. His sentencing is set for Nov. 13.

Bigger hospitals may lead to bigger bills for patients (NY Times) — Hospitals across the nation are being swept up in the biggest wave of mergers since the 1990s, a development that is creating giant hospital systems that could one day dominate American health care and drive up costs. The consolidations are being driven by a confluence of powerful forces, not least of which is President Obama’s signature health care law, the Affordable Care Act. That law, many experts say, is transforming the economics of health care and pushing a growing number of hospitals into the arms of suitors.

The changes are unfolding with remarkable speed. Two big for-profit hospital chains, Community Health Systems of Tennessee and Health Management Associates of Florida, are combining in a $7.6 billion deal. In New York City, Mount Sinai Medical Center, which is one of the country’s oldest and largest private nonprofit hospitals, is buying the parent of Beth Israel Medical Center and St. Luke’s and Roosevelt Hospitals. Tenet Healthcare of Dallas, which operates in 10 states, is buying Vanguard Health Systems of Nashville, a network of 28 hospitals and facilities that includes

Detroit Medical Center. In fact, Booz & Company, a consulting firm, predicts that 1,000 of the nation’s roughly 5,000 hospitals could seek out mergers in the next five to seven years. “There’s immense logic for them to become large super-regional systems, even some national systems,” said David W. Johnson, a managing director for BMO Capital Markets, which advises nonprofit health systems. Some chains are merging to increase their size and their negotiating clout with insurers, while others are trying to reduce costs and improve care, he said.

Justice Department seeks to Stop-and-frisk practice curtail stiff drug sentences violated rights, judge rules

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — In a major shift in criminal justice policy, the Obama administration moved on Monday to ease overcrowding in federal prisons by ordering prosecutors to omit listing quantities of illegal substances in indictments for low-level drug cases, sidestepping federal laws that impose strict mandatory minimum sentences for drug-related offenses. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., in a speech at the American Bar Association’s annual meeting in San Francisco on Monday, announced the new policy as one of several steps intended to curb soaring taxpayer spending on prisons and help correct what he regards

as unfairness in the justice system, according to his prepared remarks. Saying that “too many Americans go to too many prisons for far too long and for no good law enforcement reason,” Holder justified his policy push in both moral and economic terms. “Although incarceration has a role to play in our justice system, widespread incarceration at the federal, state and local levels is both ineffective and unsustainable,” Holder’s speech said. “It imposes a significant economic burden — totaling $80 billion in 2010 alone — and it comes with human and moral costs that are impossible to calculate.”

(NY Times) — In a repudiation of a major element in the Bloomberg administration’s crime-fighting legacy, a federal judge has found that the stop-and-frisk tactics of the New York Police Department violated the constitutional rights of minorities in New York, and called for a federal monitor to oversee broad reforms. In a blistering decision issued on Monday, the judge, Shira A. Scheindlin, found that the Police Department had “adopted a policy of indirect racial profiling” that targeted young minority men for stops. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said the city would appeal the ruling, angrily accusing the judge of deliberately not giving the city “a fair trial.” The mayor cited the benefits of stop-and-frisk, crediting the tactic for making the city safer and for ridding the streets of thousands of illegal guns. But in her ruling, Judge Scheindlin found that in doing so, the police systematically stopped innocent people in the street without any objective reason to suspect them of wrongdoing.

In the valleys of blog The psycho-historians must be having a field day with all the “taper” chatter fogging the valleys of Blog. The topic certainly presents a sticky hairball of a compound dilemma to anyone who cares about the fate of the nation. If the Federal Reserve tapers its monthly purchase of U.S. Treasury debt paper plus a nearly equal amount of dodgy mortgage foam frothed up by Washington’s housing bubble machine … well, then, the equity markets will tank, or so the theory goes. Of course, they recently demonstrated that tapering itself is not necessary to move the markets; a rumor of tapering will get the job done. But that’s a theory for the moment, too, because by so doing the markets may have already ––––– priced-in any actual taper Kunstler.com to follow.

An assessment of policy folly Studying the state of the union causes great concern and fills a reader with foreboding. Every day another turn is taken on the screw of destruction. More evidence is heaped on the pile of policy folly, and the lobbyists, those who would be paid to assure that nothing happens to weaken the edifice of greed, work tirelessly at billable hours obstructing reform of any kind. What industry might one suppose spends the most money to protect its place in the nation’s economy? Former President Eisenhower, a military man, warned about the military-industrial complex. Actually in the new century the medical-pharmaceutical complex far outpaces the former champion in its lobbying expenditures. All the screaming tumult of political factions about who should pay for health care is really a diversion from the more important question about how much we spend on health care. Do you think it would be instructive to see how much money lobbying firms receive from industry groups to advance their points of view? Who pays how much to whom for what services? Do you think insurance companies have an interest in what rates can be charged for health insurance? When huge corporations seek the

One Man’s Island most favorable deals for locating their manufacturing or distribution facilities, tax increment financing, and public support for more jobs, when standards for cleaning air and water and protecting the environment that we all share and leave to our children are reduced or delayed to create a “business friendly environment,” when a living wage is out of reach because any job is better than no job at all, who profits? What does it mean for our way of life that penal incarceration is one of the largest growth industries in the country? Fans of predictive science fiction like to point to all the far-fetched ideas that became true. A future of convict labor on space ships mining asteroid minerals for a corporate entity doesn’t sound so far fetched anymore. Would it be interesting to know what trade organizations are contributing the most money to support candidacies of politicians who share the view that increasing the

minimum wage by even ten percent would ruin the national recovery? What industry group stands to benefit most from unlimited access to firearms, armor piercing ammunition, and protective body armor? Finally to the continued degradation of the planetary environment, billions of dollars are being spent to guarantee Congress will not act to regulate the uses of fossil fuels for energy generation. Traditional corporate welfare will be continued to subsidize the richest corporations and provide extraordinary exemptions for their enterprises regardless to the long term costs for all who live on the Earth. Agencies of the federal and state government created to protect citizens from the power of corporate wealth will pretzel themselves backward to not interfere with their corporate lords. These realizations from the news depress, but we must soldier on and try to rouse the people to demand a better government that gives us all an opportunity to live well.

In Europe, members of the EU are being eaten alive, financially KUNSTLER from page 4

are in motion. For instance, there’s the non-theoretical, non-financial economy, which is now apparently based on the trade in tattoos, and the journey by automobile from the nearly foreclosed home to the tattoo studio, and to the hamburgers, pizzas, and fried chicken thighs consumed on each end of the journey. Judging from the sheer number of tattoos-per-capita, one might think that a certain tattoo saturation point had been reached in this country, unless the market can be expanded, say, to maternity wards where newborns can get full “sleeve” and neck jobs on Medicaid. Over in Europe, the members of the EU are being eaten alive by a carnivorous sub-species of giant financial hairball, and another theory says that whatever “money” can get out of there (while the getting is good) will flood into the USA, and more specifically into those very equity markets spooked by the chatter of tapering QE. Perhaps Fed officials (and their pet skinks) are hoping that some of that “money” will sop up whatever U.S. Treasury paper the Fed tapers off buying. (After all, who else would buy the stuff?) That would only be plausible, though, if the interest rates went up, which they might anyway. But if they do they would turn around and bite the US Department of the Treasury on its fat butt by increasing the percent of government spending needed to pay interest on debt to a level that would effectively put the government out of business — in which case we’d be in the grips of the same carnivorous hairball that’s eating Europe, and then all that “money” would have to find yet another continent to flee to. You see how complicated it gets? This is giving me the vapors. Anyway, those interest rates on U.S. Treasury paper would have to go up a fat lot to compete with the allure of an equity market frothing toward the 20,000 hash-mark. Personally, I would not encumber my view of things-to-come in such a rococo maze of theoretical conjecture. Rather, I would settle for the simpler diagnosis that we’re just flat screwed, having made all the wrong choices on just about everything for a very long time. Speaking of wrong choices, the smartest money in the betting pool for the next Fed chair pick shifted strangely last week to the lugubrious figure of Lawrence Summers, who was the longest of

long-shots just a week before. This is the same Lawrence Summers lately on the payroll of CitiGroup and other institutions utterly dependent on Federal Reserve policy. They had to find a revolving door big enough for King Kong to push Larry through. This is the same Larry Summers who remarked not long ago that Quantitative Easing was not an effective way to stimulate the economy. Apparently he did not notice that QE is wonderfully effective for juicing the tattoo economy because it produces vast new quantities of citizens who perceive themselves to be losers.

Mr. Summers will be entering the scene the way Vincent Price used to enter a Hammer Studio horror film — reliably delivering some deadly unpleasantness. I don’t think a more perfect figure might be found for piloting the garbage barge of American finance over a Niagara Falls of consequence.

Bad policy means al Qaeda is a threat right here in the U.S. To the Editor: For years, President Obama has been telling us that al Qaeda is “on the run.” Now we learn that they are “on the run” to bomb U.S. Embassies and kill Americans. President Obama responds with closures of about 20 Embassies and Consulates and a global travel warning. Unfortunately that means al Qaeda is a threat right here in the U.S. because terrorists can get here from Canada or Mexico through our inadequately protected borders. On their way to attack our embassies and people, terrorists have stopped off in Libya and Syria to collect the arms and aid that the Obama administration has been providing them. This administration also aided the enemy by revealing how we discovered the terror threats. In Afghanistan, the Obama administration is paying contractors that are “providing material support to the insurgency...” which may also support global Jihad. The Inspector General states, “I am deeply troubled that the US military can pursue, attack, and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the US government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract.” (http://www. sigar.mil/pdf/quarterlyreports/2013-07-30qr.pdf) President Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East has been so contrary to American interests that, as his pastor, Reverend Wright, says, “Ameri-

ca’s chickens are coming home to roost”. The Muslim terrorists that President Obama has encouraged, armed and funded are now a threat to American Embassies and Americans anywhere in the world, including here at home. Don Ewing Meredith, N.H.

Tar sands in Maine ‘one more large nail in the Earth’s coffin’ To the Editor, I would like to encourage the city of South Portland to stand up for itself on the issue of the Waterfront Protection Ordinance by bringing it to a vote through a citizen’s initiative in November. The situation facing the city is first of all a Davidand-Goliath confrontation, in which one of the largest corporate giants in the world has blithely assumed that South Portland would have no problem defacing its historic waterfront, contradicting its carefully crafted Comprehensive Plan, and endangering its residents, not to mention the entire local environment from the bottom of the harbor to the top of its atmosphere and as far outand inland as one can see. But on another level again, South Portland’s action on this proposal will have further-ranging repercussions of significance to the future of this planet. The proposed smokestacks are part of the

apparatus of a tar sands oil transport scheme that is one more large nail in the Earth’s coffin, as the oil and gas giants wrack and squeeze the earth’s crust for every last drop of dwindling resource. If South Portland can successfully bring simple common sense to bear on this outrageous presumption by the giants of the profit-over-planet mentality, then humanity will be a bit closer to saving itself.

Higgins respected by this reader for doing the necessary footwork Editor: It took me his first year before I got over skipping the Bob Higgins piece outright (something about that photo, perhaps) until I realized there was some gold there to be mined, and then some more time until I understood that he was the only guy at the paper who actually covered the beat, attended the meetings, filed FOI requests, and interviewed folks about things that I didn’t know about yet. While maintaining a journalistic style that indicated he was not interested in garnering respect, he earned mine. Steven Goodman Portland

U.S. Sen. King, community partners laud backpack program to feed Maine children By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

Teachers stopped testing their students on Mondays, knowing that so many would come to school hungry that they would not be able to concentrate. This anecdote, shared by Kristen Miale, president of Good Shepherd Food Bank, caused U.S. Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, to voice his dismay, during a press conference Monday to launch a food-outreach effort for children. “The teachers know better than to give a test on Monday morning,” King said Monday, quoting Miale. The U.S. senator called this admission “a profound and disturbing observation.” On Monday morning at Brunswick’s Coffin Elementary School, Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program and a host of partners announced the launch of its food “BackPack Program,” which will provide nutritious food for about 200 students attending eight elementary schools in Mid Coast Maine. Ethan Minton, mid-day host at WCLZ radio, and a board member with Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program, explained that the program seeks to “bridge the gap” for children who go hungry at home. “For thousands of students in Maine, Monday is the most important day during the school year. There are 5and 6-year-olds and in fact children of all ages, who spend their weekends wondering how much longer they will have to go before they eat again,” Minton said. Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program, a 30-year-old program that started out of the back of a station wagon, now is marking 10 years at 84A Union St., Brunswick. The “BackPack Program”

was created in collaboration with the Good Shepherd Food Bank. “What started as a pilot program has quickly evolved to the largest of its kind in Maine,” Minton said. “This fall, we will be providing nutritious food to nearly 200 elementary school students in eight schools in Midcoast Maine. Every Friday afternoon, teachers will discreetly place enough food in each student’s backpack to help bridge the gap between their last school lunch at noontime on Friday and the first meal they receive on Monday.” King called this effort “the last mile,” for people

who are not eligible for various kinds of aid and may not be able to reach a food pantry. “In Washington, we are going through this strange phenomenon where people are cutting food aid, which frankly I don’t understand,” King said, referring to efforts to rein in funding for the rapidly growing food stamp program, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. According to the Congressional Budget Office, in fiscal year 2011, federal expenditures for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program reached $78 billion, and participation in the program was the highest it had ever been. “By fiscal year 2022, CBO projects, 34 million people (or about one in 10 U.S. residents) will receive SNAP benefits each month (roughly the same number as in 2009), and SNAP expenditures, at about $73 billion, will be among the highest of all non-health-related federal support programs for low-income households,” the CBO reported. While with budget cuts to SNAP, the federal deficit may be trimmed, the cost will be too high, King argued. “The overall social budget is way out of balance,” King said. Miale, president of Good Shepherd Food Bank, said a version of the backpack program was started in 2009 by the food bank in partnership with the Junior League. “Childhood hunger has become an increasingly alarming problem in Maine, nearly one in four children in Maine live with food insecurity, which means they often don’t know where their next meal is coming from,” she said. Miale said childhood hunger perpetuates poverty. “When a child goes to school hungry, they are being set up to fail,” she said. Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program served more than 35,000 meals to over 1,000 families in 2012, an effort that King applauded. “In this society, there is no excuse for people being hungry,” King said. For details about the program, contact Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program at 725-2716, or email info@mchpp.org. To donate or volunteer, go to www. mchpp.org.

Italian Street Festival ‘Bazaar’ in Portland draws over 20,000 By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

The Italian Street Festival “Bazaar” on Federal Street in Portland last weekend was deemed a success by organizers. Attendance was estimated at 20,000 people for both days, according to organizers of the 88th annual Italian Street Festival “Bazaar.” On Facebook, organizers added, “The 2013 Bazaar was a tremendous success, thanks in big part to all those who help out!” The Italian Street Festival “Bazaar” is an annual fundraising and community event for St. Peter’s Church, the Italian Parish of the Diocese of Portland, celebrating the Feasts of the Assumption and St. Rocco.

Congress Square groups seek design plans for plaza Two groups, Friends of Congress Square and Congress Square Summer, will be holding an open Design Charette and free potluck on Saturday, Aug. 31 at the Meg Perry Center in Portland, all part of a push against any sale by the city of a portion of Congress Square, the groups announced Monday.

Attendance was estimated at 20,000 people, according to organizers of the 88th annual Italian Street Festival “Bazaar.” (DAVID CARKHUFF PHOTO)

The groups are requesting that any and all artists, architects and designers submit their design idea for the park to the website set up by the city at www.neighborland.com/congresssq and to congresssquarepark@gmail. com so that the designs can be projected on a screen in the park, at a celebration with the date to be announced sometime later this month. The two groups are working to keep Congress Square a public park and “have claimed victory” as the city

launches a new “visioning” process for Congress Square. City officials have described the “visioning process” as a broader look at the square, not just the park or plaza that has garnered so much attention. The City Council’s Housing and Community Development Committee voted 3-1 in late May to authorize city staff to begin negotiations with RockBridge Capital — the owners of the former Eastland Park Hotel — about the possible sale of a portion of the

park by the city to the hotel. RockBridge Capital — the firm that bought the Eastland Park and is converting it into the Westin Portland Harbor View — has presented the city with plans for a proposed 9,400-square-foot building which leaves a 4,836-square-foot public plaza. Previously, the Congress Square Redesign Study Group met to make a recommendation on RockBridge’s proposal but wound up deadlocked on the future of the park.

After 69 years, family behind DiPietro’s Italian Sandwiches ready to bid farewell By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

On Saturday afternoon, the DiPietro family scrambled behind the counter, churning out deli sandwiches for a steady stream of customers at DiPietro’s Italian Sandwiches, 171 Cumberland Ave., Portland. The exhausting pace won’t last much longer — and customers are rushing to take advantage of the opportunity for one last Italian from DiPietro’s.

After 69 years, the DiPietro family business will close for good this month. Final day of operation is Sunday, Aug. 18. Warren and Grace DiPietro started the sandwich shop in 1944, and in 1966, Joseph DiPietro took over from his parents. He died in 2003, and his widow, Eleanor DiPietro, continued running the business. “It’s always been family,” she said. “The store opened in 1944, Joey’s parents owned it. Then, the kids all worked in it growing up,”

Eleanor recalled. For years, the discreet, “hole-in-the-wall” sandwich shop built up a loyal following. The family would start making a sandwich when the regulars showed up on the sidewalk outside — that’s how well the DiPietros knew their customers and what they wanted. Four generations of the DiPietro family kept the business going. On Saturday, Eleanor DiPietro’s daughter, Michele Grondin, her son-in-law, Russell, and daughter Mary Ellen all worked the counter. One reviewer at Urbanspoon.com wrote, “My husband has fond memories getting these sandwiches in the summer growing up in SoPo. They were as amazing as I could remember from ten years ago getting them on Cumberland Avenue. Stuffed full of yum.” Another wrote, “My family has been going here as long as I can remember, and they are by far the best Italian sandwiches I have EVER had!:) Sooooo delicious, fresh, and amazing!” News of the impending closure spread swiftly. “The DiPietro family would like to let all of our faithful customers know, that after 69 years in business, we will be closing to enjoy retirement,” the family wrote in a poster. “Our last day to serve you will be Sunday, August 18th, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. come in and savor one of our famous Italians because as Joey use to say, ‘You’ve eaten the rest, now try the best.’ Many thanks to all of our loyal customers throughout the decades.’” Eleanor said news of the closing has sparked an emotional response. “People are very upset because I’m closing. We’ve been here for 69 years, and there have been a lot of people come and go. When people move away, they come back,” she said. Business proved harder in recent years, with increased competition, but the decision came down to a family resolution. The next generation wasn’t interested in carrying on the enterprise, Eleanor said. “They lived it all their life, and worked it, and they want a change as well,” she said.

Activists, policymakers push for action on climate change By Craig Lyons THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

Local and federal leaders have called on Mainers to just get on the bus to fight climate change. The “I Will Act on Climate” bus tour stopped in Portland Monday on its way through Maine, which is one of the 21 states the bus will pass through on its travels. The tour’s purpose is to raise awareness and garner support for new climate change policies. In Portland, the bus was met by Mayor Michael Brennan, U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud — a prospective candidate for governor in 2014 — and U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, Glen Brand of the Maine Sierra Club, Vanessa Pike of the Greater Portland Convention and Visitors Bureau, Curt Spaulding of the Environmental Protection Agency, Phil Coupe of ReVision Energy, Jim Merryman of Potts Harbor Lobster company and Paul Perkins of the Maine Physicians for Social Responsibility. “We all know that climate change is real,” Michaud said, and its devastating impacts are documented. “We can no longer deny it or ignore it.” Michaud said the tour is an important way to raise awareness and urge Maine residents to call on their leaders to take action. “We can’t sit back and think this issue is going to fix itself,” he said. Everyone must lead on climate change, Michaud said, and it’s the collection of voices that will alter the course of public policy. He said Maine has been at the forefront to clean energy through wind turbines, tidal power, biomass, solar power and geothermal heating. “Tackling climate change is an opportunity for our state and our nation,” he said, and it can help families, businesses and institutions through economic and health benefits.

“Tackling climate change is an opportunity for our state and our nation.” ��� U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, D-Maine In June, President Obama rolled out his policy plans to address climate change, which include limiting carbon emissions, investing in energy efficiency measures and supporting renewable energy development. “People really care about this issue and are greatly concerned,” Pingree said. Representing many coastal communities, Pingree said she hears about people’s concerns regarding climate change as the state is being impacted by increasing ocean temperatures, rising sea levels and water acidification. “This isn’t just theoretical anymore, it’s real,” she said. Climate change is affecting the lobster and fishing industries, forest and agricultural ventures, Pingree said, and there’s story after story about what’s starting to happen. Brennan said in 1970, on the first Earth Day, he spoke at his church about the importance of clean air and water. He said he was afraid that if action wasn’t taken there would be serious consequences down the road. If, in 1970, the country had taken one-tenth of the steps to address the problem, Brennan said, the environment would not be in the predicament it is today. He said it’s time to take action so in another 30 years, people can look back and know they made a difference. “I’m committed today ... to making sure we address these issues,” he said.

Sandy Hook school memorial makes a stop in Portland Daily Sun Staff Reports Children and families climbed onto a trailer and moved in for a closer look at a Maine-made memorial to victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting, during a tour of the memorial last weekend. On Saturday, the Portland Fire Department Central fire station hosted the Sandy Hook Memorial, a gift from the people of Maine to the residents of Newtown, Conn., in the wake of the Dec. 14, 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school that left 20 children and six adults dead. The Portland Fire Department was one of seven fire departments in the state to host the tribute to the students and staff killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary school. Members of the public were invited to view the memorial while it was at the fire station. Local and state police joined other city personnel and the public for the one-hour showing. “We are all part of a community, a community of parents, brothers, sisters and first responders,” Portland Fire Chief Jerome LaMoria stated in a press release. “As members of those communities, our hearts go out to every one of the victims and their families who lost so much that day and the first responders who will forever be affected. The Portland Fire Department is honored to be a part of this effort.” The memorial, made of granite, concrete and seashells contained the names of the victims and small illuminated angels etched into the base. Richard Gray who now lives in Florida was moved by the tragedy and wanted to create a memorial that could be a gift from the people of Maine. The memorial traveled from Northern Maine to Newtown over the weekend, and the Town of Newton accepted the memorial on Sunday.

Albee a special guest at final Alive at Five concert on Thursday The season’s last Alive at Five concert on Thursday, Aug. 15, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Monument Square, will feature a last-minute addition, veteran musician Spencer Albee, and will hinge on hopes that no last-minute storms crop up. Last week’s Alive at Five was cancelled due to a forecast for rain (although the weather ended up being decent). This week’s free concert in Monument Square looks to kick off under sunny skies. “Clear, sunny with a high near 74,” was the forecast cited by Rachel Irwin, events and marketing manager at Portland Downtown District, which organizes these and other

free concert and entertainment events in Portland. Albee will take the stage while basking in strong reviews for his new selftitled CD, which is debuting in stores and online. In 2000, just before he left Rustic Overtones, Albee released a self-produced CD called “The Popsicko” that enjoyed success both critically and commercially, spawning two No. 1 singles, the PDD noted. Since then, “it’s been a whirlwind of recordings, hits and record contracts through several more bands,” including Rocktopus, AS FAST AS, Spencer and the School Spirit Mafia and Space versus Speed, the PDD noted in a press release. Albee will take the stage in a concert also featuring Jeff Beam’s Loudspeaker Wallpaper, a psychedelic rock band from Portland, and Sara Hallie

Richardson, a Portland-based singer/ songwriter performing and writing music through folk, indie and electronic styles. After the Aug. 8 Alive at Five concert was cancelled, Irwin said one of the scheduled acts — Arc of Sky — wasn’t able to return for the season finale. “After we had to do the reschedule — we work with cumulus radio to book all the bands — and Arc of Sky had a conflict, and we said, ‘Let’s go out and get someone local and really cool to perform.’ And Spencer was available,” Irwin said. The Alive at Five has taken on a family-friendly atmosphere, with crowds packing the square, Irwin said. “We’ve actually had a good year this year and I think it’s because it’s been a lot of local Portland musi-

cians,” she said. “It’s been a very family friendly crowd,” Irwin said, describing “a lot of kids dancing, parents bringing their kids after work.” Portland Pie Co. has been serving pizza, and Shipyard Brewing Co. has sold beer. The public can also check out the final weekday music series performance in Congress Square Friday from noon to 1 p.m., when Martin Swinger takes the stage; and the end of the weekday performance series on Tuesday, noon to 1 p.m., when the public can enjoy a dance performance by Centre of Movement School of Performing Arts.

Bath police say woman whose body was found in the Kennebec River committed suicide By David Carkhuff THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

BATH — Police retrieved the body of a woman from the Kennebec River early Sunday, in what police described as an apparent suicide. The woman has been identified as Debra McKellar, 60, of 530 High St., apt No. 19, Bath. Evidence collected at the woman’s residence indicates that this was a suicide, and there are no indications of foul play, the Bath Police Department reported. At approximately 5:30 a.m. Sunday, the Bath Police received a report of a dead body in the Kennebec River near the south end boat launch on Washington Street. Police responded and were able to retrieve the body from the water. Police said they were not certain as to the location where she entered the river, and they were working on a time and place she was last seen by neighbors, friends or relatives. The Maine Medical Examiner’s Office has been notified and her body will be sent there for examination, police said.

Lindemann’s legacy in jazz music to be honored By Timothy Gillis

SPECIAL TO THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN

Marguerite “Cissie” Williams Lindemann lived “a remarkable life” worthy of a jazz performance to mark her passing. So says Mark Finks of the State Street Traditional Jazz Band, which will play at her funeral service at St. Luke’s today. Lindemann, 88, of Portland died on Wednesday, Aug. 7. Her funeral service is at 11 a.m. today at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke, 143 State St., Portland. A reception will be held afterwards at One Longfellow Square in Portland. Lindemann was the “spark plug behind the jazz brunch series at the Portland Museum of Art,” Finks recalled, describing her as someone who encouraged “everybody who

played jazz in southern Maine” to play there a number of times. “She always asked me, ‘Will you guys play at my funeral?’ and I said, ‘If I’m here, I will,’” Fink recalled. Finks will fulfill that promise at St. Luke’s Cathedral on State Street, and then again at a reception following the service at One Longfellow Square. Finks, who plays banjo, guitar, clarinet, all of the saxophones, sings and leads the band, was inspired by Lindemann’s love of music. “Her family wanted to reinstitute the jazz brunch series at the museum, but they didn’t want to go in that direction,” he said. “We’re hopeful of it being brought back, this time at One Longfellow Square. Cissie brought all different ages and conditions in on Sunday mornings for that jazz series.

Cissie loved the music. People would show up at the museum in rain or snow — it was notably successful.” The State Street band played in front of “some of the nicest listening audiences,” said Finks, whose band takes its name from the State Street Congregational Church next to St. Luke’s. Finks played there 25 years ago, and went on to play with veteran musicians in New Orleans, including five or six bands at Preservation Hall in the French Quarter there. Playing music since he was a kid, Finks took music lessons at Lincoln Junior High School. He recalled meeting Louis Armstrong at the Palace Ballroom in Old Orchard Beach. Despite being around such luminaries, he was especially impressed

with the dedication to music he found in Lindemann. He met her a decade ago when his band started playing the brunch series at PMA. “She was always enthusiastic about music, a very gracious person,” Finks said. The band will play “Just a Closer Walk With Thee” and “Amazing Grace” at the funeral service. They will close with “When they Saints Come Marching In.” At the reception following the service at One Longfellow Square, Finks said the band would play traditional New Orleans jazz music. “Cissie had an infectious enthusiasm and could influence others to take an interest in music,” Finks said. “She thought music was good for you, and it is.”

Marguerite Williams Lindemann, 88 PORTLAND — Marguerite “Cissie” Williams Lindemann, 88, of Portland passed away peacefully after a long, fulfilled life of service on Wednesday, August 7, 2013. She was born on April 3, 1925, the daughter of Marguerite Darmour and Paul Williams. As a teenager growing up in Washington, D.C., Cissie sat in the gallery of the Capitol for FDR’s “Day of Infamy” speech following the attack on Pearl Harbor. After the war, she started her career in radio as a production assistant at Foote, Cone & Belding in California where she travelled all over the country with the Bob Hope Show. She moved to New York City to join the day’s fledgling New Media, television. She worked on “We the People” and the legendary “Your Show of Shows” where she met her husband Carl Lindemann, Kate Smith’s cameraman. Cissie raised five children in Greenwich, Connecticut. She was committed to the community and volunteered for numerous social service organizations, often in leadership roles. In the 70’s, she and her family began their migration to Maine, first with summers on Chebeague Island. Throughout, she supported her husband as he rose through the ranks of television where he ultimately became Head of NBC Sports. They traveled the world together for major sporting events including the Olympics, Super Bowl, World Series, Kentucky Derby and U.S. Open Tennis. They retired in South Freeport in the 80’s till death parted them in 1985. Cissie created a new life for herself that made her a familiar face in Portland. A lifelong history buff, she immersed herself in the city’s past and authored a popular walking tour book. She guided many up-and-down the observatory steps for Greater Portland Landmarks and worked the crowds at the Eastern Cemetary’s, “Walk Among the Shadows” event. She is best known for creating and managing the Jazz Brunch that lit up the Portland Museum of Art on Sundays for many years. Always devoted to service, she cofounded St. Elizabeth’s Essentials Pantry. Cissie took great pride in her children’s accomplishments both in Maine and away. She often frequented Coffee By Design which her daughter, Mary Allen, co-founded. Cissie is survived by her daughters Cathie Muscat of Guilford, Vermont, Sarah Lindemann-Komarova of Novosibirsk, Russia, Frances Lindemann and Mary Allen Lindemann, both of Portland, and Carl Lindemann of Austin, Texas.

Kathleen Marie Rines Carruthers, 55 Kathleen Marie Rines Carruthers, 55, of Albany, N.H., passed away Aug. 5, 2013 at Memorial Hospital after a very long and courageous battle with cancer. When her treatment came to an end this spring, Kathy quietly continued to guide her family from home. Kathy was devoted to her three children and surrounded them with love [as well as her cakes cookies and fudge]. Kathy was born in Portland, Maine to Carl Rines and Barbara [Virgilio] Rines and was a lifelong resident of Mt. Washington Valley. She graduated from Kennett High School and attended UNH in Durham. After her marriage and in between the births of her three children, Kathy was employed at Sid’s Valley Food and Beverage and will be remembered as the one with a smile, a witty word or two, and especially the girl with the beautiful long red hair. Kathy is survived by husband, Richard; sons Jefferson Earl and Andrew Wade; and daughter Amy Elizabeth, all of Albany, N.H.; and sister Teresa E, Riddle of Scottsdale, Ariz.; and brother Thomas E.

Portland police welcome new batch of recruits with ceremony ABOVE: The Portland Police Department welcomed seven new officers to its ranks on Friday during a swearing in ceremony at city hall. “We’re about to kick off some great careers,” Police Chief Michael Sauschuck said, during the ceremony, and he noted it’s rare to have a group of seven new officers starting at the same time. Sauschuck said the department only hires about 3.5 percent of the applicants. The new officers are Christopher Maher, Adam Morin, Graham Hults, Ian Geib, Jonathan Lackee, Jakob Demchak and Brian Truax. RIGHT: Ian Geib, one of the Portland Police Department’s seven new officers, was presented with his father’s badge — Number 57 — during the swearing in ceremony on Friday.

Portland ranked 13th best minor league market in hoops journal Daily Sun Staff Reports

Portland was ranked the 13th best minor league market in the latest Sports Business Journal rankings, released Monday, according to a press release from the Maine Red Claws basketball franchise. This is the fifth year of the study, the press release noted. Seven NBA Development League markets appeared in the top 20, with Springfield, Mass. topping the NBADL markets at No. 5. Each market received a total score based on three category-specific scores: tenure rank, attendance rank and economic rank. Markets were penalized for having teams that folded or moved, and markets that completed construction on new or extensively upgraded minor league facilities between 2008 and 2013 received extra credit. Markets with venues under construction but not open as of press time did not receive extra credit. Research for the study

included 235 markets, 47 leagues, 408 teams, 249.8 million in total minor league attendance, and $2.64 billion in construction at 50 new or extensively renovated venues, the press release noted. “The Sports Business Journal study shows what we already knew to be true – Portland is a tremendous sports market, and the fans here are among the best in the country,” said Red Claws President Bill Ryan Jr. “As the Maine Red Claws enter our fifth season, we are proud to showcase the best basketball outside of the NBA, and with three top level minor league sports franchises here, Maine sports fans can see the best of future major league players in basketball, hockey and baseball.” The Red Claws will hit the court in November and will play 24 home games at the Portland Expo Building during the 2012-13 season.

On Sept. 8, Victoria Mansion to present its first-ever Victorian Fair

The Victorian Fair will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 8 at Victoria Mansion, 109 Danforth St., Portland. Admission is free for children accompanied by an adult, and $10 for adults.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Financial matters, social activities and intellectual endeavors will be the main interests of the day. You may want to arrange for help with more mundane activities so you can focus. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because of the unusual environment you find yourself in this afternoon, you may feel uncharacteristically inhibited. You’ll warm to those who go out of their way to make you feel at ease. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your strong attachment to home and family won’t always be obvious today, because you’ll be busy expanding a different facet of your life. Just be sure to check in with those who matter most. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 13). You want to start a new adventure, but you still need permission, money, time and a good plan. You’ll fill in those blanks over the next six weeks. October brings a professional breakthrough. November is your chance to make extra-special memories with loved ones. Lifestyle improvements happen in January. Gemini and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 29, 11, 24 and 23.

by Paul Gilligan

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some say to lead with your strengths. Others say you can capitalize on your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. You’ll find success with an action that integrates those two ideas. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your responsibilities will be many and your helpers few. The demands of managing your life, home and relationships will be absorbing and incessant, but amidst them you’ll find moments of beauty, peace and self-reflection. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are adept at cracking codes, especially the kind presented by friends who feel too uncomfortable about their situation to speak of it in direct terms that everyone can understand. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Whether or not you are married, this most complicated of human relationships will have a bearing on the events of your day. Communication style will be a big part of this. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Love’s energy, when blocked, has a way of transmuting into negativity. Whatever is getting in the way of you sharing the best part of yourself with others is worth looking into now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you need to know won’t be readily apparent, but it only takes one good question to reveal it. Ask questions that will get to the facts or lead to an insight about the feelings of others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll likely be around the kind of people who are only impressed with those who do not try to impress them. With this in mind, find your own pleasure and benefits in the situation. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There will be some confusion as to what is relevant to the situation and what constitutes a possible solution. You’ll be especially attuned to what’s going on and may be asked to act as an official witness or judge. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be careful of how much you tell people about your history. Handle the urgent and more interesting business first. As is the case with tightly written entertainment, the backstory doesn’t belong in the opening scene.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, Aug. 13, the 225th day of 2013. There are 140 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 13, 1913, British metallurgist Harry Brearley developed an alloy that came to be known as “stainless steel.” (Although Brearley is often credited as the “inventor” of stainless steel, he was hardly alone in working to create steel that resisted corrosion.) On this date: In 1521, Spanish conqueror Hernando Cortez captured Tenochtitlan (teh-natch-teet-LAHN’), present-day Mexico City, from the Aztecs. In 1624, King Louis XIII of France appointed Cardinal Richelieu (ree-shuh-LYOO’) his first minister. In 1792, French revolutionaries imprisoned the royal family. In 1846, the American flag was raised for the first time in Los Angeles. In 1910, Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, died in London at age 90. In 1923, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was again elected Speaker of Turkey’s Grand Assembly. In 1934, the satirical comic strip “Li’l Abner,” created by Al Capp, made its debut. In 1942, Walt Disney’s animated feature “Bambi” had its U.S. premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York, five days after its world premiere in London. In 1960, the first two-way telephone conversation by satellite took place with the help of Echo 1. The Central African Republic became totally independent of French rule. In 1961, East Germany sealed off the border between Berlin’s eastern and western sectors and began building a wall that would stand for the next 28 years. In 1981, in a ceremony at his California ranch, President Ronald Reagan signed a historic package of tax and budget reductions. In 1989, searchers in Ethiopia found the wreckage of a plane which had disappeared almost a week earlier while carrying Rep. Mickey Leland, D-Texas, and 14 other people — there were no survivors. Ten years ago: Iraq began pumping crude oil from its northern oil fields for the first time since the start of the war. Five years ago: A man barged into the Arkansas Democratic headquarters in Little Rock and opened fire, killing state party chairman Bill Gwatney before speeding off in a pickup. (Police later shot and killed the gunman, Timothy Dale Johnson.) Michael Phelps swam into history as the winningest Olympic athlete ever with his 10th and 11th career gold medals. Phelps won the 200meter butterfly, then swam the leadoff of a runaway victory by the U.S. 800 freestyle relay team. One year ago: A routine serving of an eviction notice to a man living near the Texas A&M University campus turned deadly when the resident opened fire, leading to the death of a law enforcement officer before the gunman was killed. The Mayo Clinic announced that U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., a Chicago Democrat who’d taken a hushed medical leave, was being treated for bipolar disorder. Helen Gurley Brown, 90, the longtime editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, died in New York. The Boston Red Sox’s unofficial goodwill ambassador, Johnny Pesky, died at age 92.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Come see me in my office, even if only to say hello. I am here to help. -- Lou Ann Everett, Trinity Valley Community College, Terrell, Texas Dear Lou Ann Everett: Thank you for your helpful advice for students, especially incoming freshmen. We hope they pay attention. Dear Annie: My wife and daughter (age 33) don’t get along. There is history between them from when our daughter was an adolescent. For the past few years, they have gotten along better, but I always sensed a dark cloud on the horizon. We visited our daughter last week. Everything went well until the day before we left. My wife made some offhand comment, my daughter overreacted, and it went downhill from there. They are not talking to each other now. My wife tends to be hypercritical, and my daughter doesn’t know how to deal with it. I try to play peacemaker, but I don’t like being in the middle, and neither of them listens to me. Any ideas? -- Caught in the Middle Dear Caught: If your wife and daughter truly wish to change this dysfunctional pattern, it likely will require professional counseling to figure out how to behave in a more productive way. You can suggest it, but otherwise, we recommend you stay out of the middle and maintain these relationships individually. Dear Annie: “Open but Lost” had an open marriage, and you astutely asked whether her husband really wanted it. My wife wanted an open marriage based on advice received from her support group. I agreed reluctantly. I painfully experienced having to hear phone calls from her suitors. The bottom line was that I experienced a total loss of trust and commitment, and it finally led to our divorce. Years later, my ex apologized to me for what she had done and asked for my forgiveness. I’ve been happily married to my second wife for 21 years. My ex is on her fourth marriage. -- Not the Thing To Do

Dear Annie: It is back-to-school time for millions of young people. I am an instructor at a community college and would like to offer some suggestions to make the registration process smoother for students. 1. See the school counselor at least two weeks before registration. If you wait until registration week, the counselors will be extremely busy. 2. College is not free. Scholarships and grants must be applied for months in advance, not the day of registration. If you do not have the paperwork in your hand, be prepared to pay. The payout plan offered by my school must be linked to a credit card or bank account. Check with the school ahead of time to be sure you have the required information for checks or credit cards. My school requires about seven pieces of information. You will need separate checks for the bookstore and tuition. 3. Only the student should go to registration. Do not take parents, grandparents, siblings, children or friends. Small children have unplugged my computer and vomited in my office. “Helicopter” parents have been some of our worst headaches. They make nasty comments about the cost of tuition and books, over which I have no control, and it embarrasses their kids. 4. Read all of the signs with directions and instructions. I am the last step of the registration process, and I usually have to send 15 percent of the kids back through the long line because they missed a step. 5. Turn off your cellphone. I need your full attention to complete a multistep process to ensure that you have your schedule, your funds get processed and you have the proper receipts. Go to the first day of class even if you have not paid. That is when instructors go over expectations and explain assignments. Some even lecture. I want my students to be successful.

Elon Musk unveils plans for hyperloop high-speed train By Nick Bilton THE NEW YORK TIMES

Never let it be said that Elon Musk, a serial entrepreneur who was a co-founder of PayPal and the electric car company Tesla Motors, is afraid to think big. Mr. Musk on Monday harked back to the days of the late-1990s tech bubble — when no idea seemed too big or too expensive — by showing off plans for a project that seems the stuff of science fiction. The hypothetical project is called the Hyperloop, a high-speed train that would take people to San Francisco from Los Angeles in 30 minutes. That is a speed of almost 800 miles an hour. The first unanswered question among many for Mr. Musk’s ambitious vision is who exactly would build this 400-mile transportation system. Mr. Musk suggested someone else should do it. But if no one takes the baton, he might do it. Or not. Beyond that, the details of who would pay for Hyperloop, how it would be build and how long it would take are also unclear. But Mr. Musk theorized that if he devoted all of his energy, he could have a prototype done within one to two years. He estimated the project would cost around $6 billion and tickets would cost $20 per trip. “It doesn’t seem plausible to me,” said Richard White, a professor of American history at Stanford and author of “Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America.” “I’m suspicious

about everything, especially cost.” Mr. White added, “How’s he going to build this thing for $6 billion? You can’t even build the Bay Bridge for that much money.” The still-unfinished renovations of the Bay Bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland are expected to cost $6.3 billion. So don’t pack your bags just yet. In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek on Monday, Mr. Musk said he regretted mentioning the Hyperloop last year, saying that he has no time to work on the project and instead has to run SpaceX and Tesla Motors, his two other companies. Mr. Musk first mentioned Hyperloop last summer and detailed it further in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. In July, he announced on Twitter that he would unveil the designs for the high-speed train on Aug. 12. As promised, a 57-page “alpha design” plan was posted online Monday that explained how such a train would work. Mr. Musk has clearly put a lot of thought into the design. The document he unveiled explains that the high-speed train would become “truly a new mode of transport — a fifth mode after planes, trains, cars and boats.” The Hyperloop would transport people in “pods” that would travel through tubes. The tubes would be mounted on pylons that could be designed to withstand earthquake movements. Mr. Musk took swipes at the California High Speed Rail that is being built and headed by the California High-Speed Rail Authority. This train, while real, is

not expected to be completed until 2029 and will cost an estimated $68.4 billion to build. “When the California ‘high speed’ rail was approved, I was quite disappointed, as I know many others were too,” Mr. Musk wrote, while saying that the Hyperloop would cost $6 billion to build. It is not clear how he arrived at this cost estimate. If anyone could build such a train, it is probably Mr. Musk. Critics railed against him when he first broached the idea for private space travel with Space Exploration Technologies, of Hawthorne, Calif. Otherwise known as SpaceX, Mr. Musk’s company proved critics wrong last year when it launched its Falcon 9 rocket. But Mr. Musk’s assertion that he does not want to be the leader of the Hyperloop project has some people wondering if it will actually be built. During a news conference, Mr. Musk seemed to waver over whether he wanted to be involved with the project. “I’m somewhat tempted to at least make a demonstration prototype,” he said. “I’ve sort of come around a little bit on my thinking here that maybe I should do the beginning bit and build a subscale version that’s operating.” In the paper released Monday, Mr. Musk acknowledged that there had been other proposed ideas for a train similar to the high-speed train over the years. “Unfortunately,” he wrote, “none of these have panned out.”

argue that the process is unnecessarily restrictive and time-consuming, particularly since America’s need for doctors will expand sharply in a few short months under President Obama’s health care law. They point out that medical services cost far more in the United States than elsewhere in the world, in part because of such restrictions. The United States already faces a shortage of physicians in many parts of the country, especially in specialties where foreign-trained physicians are most likely to practice, like primary care. And that shortage is going to get exponentially worse, studies predict, when the health care law insures millions more Americans starting in 2014. The new health care law only modestly increases the supply of homegrown primary care doctors, not nearly

enough to account for the shortfall, and even that tiny bump is still a few years away because it takes so long to train new doctors. Immigrant advocates and some economists point out that the medical labor force could grow much faster if the country tapped the underused skills of the foreign-trained physicians who are already here but are not allowed to practice. Canada, by contrast, has made efforts to recognize more highquality training programs done abroad. “It doesn’t cost the taxpayers a penny because these doctors come fully trained,” said Nyapati Raghu Rao, the Indian-born chairman of psychiatry at Nassau University Medical Center and a past chairman of the American Medical Association’s international medical graduates governing council. “It is doubtful that the U.S. can respond to the massive shortages without the participation of international medical graduates. But we’re basically ignoring them in this discussion and I don’t know why that is.” Consider Sajith Abeyawickrama, 37, who was a celebrated anesthesiologist in his native Sri Lanka. But here in the United States, where he came in 2010 to marry, he cannot practice medicine. Instead of working as a doctor himself, he has held a series of jobs in the medical industry, including an unpaid position where he entered patient data into a hospital’s electronic medical records system, and, more recently, a paid position teaching a test prep course for students trying to become licensed doctors themselves. For years the United States has been training too few doctors to meet its own needs, in part because of industry-set limits on the number of medical school slots available. Today about one in four physicians practicing in the United States were trained abroad, a figure that includes a substantial number of American citizens who could not get into medical school at home and studied in places like the Caribbean. But immigrant doctors, no matter how experienced and well trained, must run a long, costly and confusing gantlet before they can actually practice here. Among other requirements, foreign doctors must prove they speak English; pass three separate steps of the United States Medical Licensing Examination; get American recommendation letters, usually obtained after volunteering or working in a hospital, clinic or research organization; and be permanent residents or receive a work visa (which often requires them to return to their home country after their training).

Path to United States practice is a long slog to foreign doctors By Catherine Rampell THE NEW YORK TIMES

Thousands of foreign-trained immigrant physicians are living in the United States with lifesaving skills that are going unused because they stumbled over one of the many hurdles in the path toward becoming a licensed doctor here. The involved testing process and often duplicative training these doctors must go through are intended to make sure they meet this country’s high quality standards, which American medical industry groups say are unmatched elsewhere in the world. Some development experts are also loath to make it too easy for foreign doctors to practice here because of the risk of a “brain drain” abroad. But many foreign physicians and their advocates
