Work zones stay in effect on I-295 this weekend Workers gone, but cones remain BY DAVID CARKHUFF THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN
For travelers on Interstate 295 this holiday weekend, there will be some good news and some bad news. The good news: Over the Memorial Day weekend, from 6 a.m. today through 7 p.m. Tuesday, there will be no construction activity on I-295.
FRIDAY, MAY 27, 2011
“When you start to limit the capacity of the busiest road in the state, there are going to be trafﬁc delays.” — Mark Latti, spokesman for the Maine Department of Transportation The bad news: Long-term lane and ramp closures remain in effect, meaning drivers still need to watch out for cones and barriers where lanes are closed off.
VOL. 3 NO. 82
"Even though basically the projects will shut down over the holiday weekend ... any lane closures that are in effect currently will exist over the weekend," said Mark Latti, spokesman for the Maine Department of Transportation. The freeway job consists of "periodic maintenance on highway infrastructure," Latti said, which includes repaving, safety improvements such as new guardrails, improved drainage and culvert work.

At least three of the four full-time instructors at Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland have resigned, school officials confirmed yesterday. However, the school is expected to remain open next year and is in the process of hiring new instructors,
Salt board member Mike Cardente said. “Salt is going to continue to operate, and all the plans are in order for next semester,” he said. “It seems like it’s going to be a good year.” In an email, Salt executive director Donna Galluzzo confirmed that “a number of Salt instructors have see SALT page 6
Study: State bike-friendly, but lacking enforcement Asst. police chief says ofﬁcers must prioritize, use judgment BY MATT DODGE THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN
Maine might be the second most bike-friendly state in the nation, but it’s not very strict when it comes to enforcing bike safety laws, a study released this week finds. The annual rankings, released by The League of American Bicyclists, placed Maine behind only Washington state in the list of bike-friendliness. However, in reviewing for the first time the performance of states see BIKES page 8

Maine was recently ranked the second bike-friendliest state in the country, but received a grade of “F” in the category of enforcement. (MATT DODGE PHOTO)

Workplace may be cause of rise in obesity
(NY Times) — Looking beyond poor eating habits and a couch-potato lifestyle, a group of researchers has found a new culprit in the obesity epidemic: the American workplace. A sweeping review of shifts in the labor force since 1960 suggests that a sizable portion of the national weight gain can be explained by declining physical activity during the workday. Jobs requiring moderate physical activity, which accounted for 50 percent of the labor market in 1960, have plummeted to just 20 percent. The remaining 80 percent of jobs, the researchers report, are sedentary or require only light activity. The shift translates to an average decline of 120 to 140 calories a day in physical activity, closely matching the nation’s steady weight gain over the past five decades, according to the report, published Wednesday in the journal PLoS One. Today, an estimated one in three Americans are obese. Researchers caution that workplace physical activity most likely accounts for only one piece of the obesity puzzle, and that diet, lifestyle and genetics all play important roles.

Serbia: Mladic will face tribunal for war crimes (NY Times) — Ratko Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb general accused of war crimes including masterminding the massacre of some 8,000 Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995, has been captured in Serbia after more than 15 years as one of the world’s most wanted fugitives. President Boris Tadic of Serbia announced the arrest in
Belgrade on Thursday, giving few details. Televised images showed Mr. Mladic from behind, shuffling unsteadily into a Belgrade courtroom. Serbian news reports said that Mr. Mladic, now 68, had been living under the name of Milorad Komadic and that he was captured in the small farming town of Lazarevo in Vojvodina, the Serbian prov-
ince north of Belgrade, after authorities received a tip that the man known as Komadic resembled Mr. Mladic and had identification documents with that name. Witnesses said he was not wearing a beard or any disguise, but had aged considerably, appearing older and thinner than the stout, selfassured professional soldier last seen in public in 2006.
Missouri ofﬁcials release list of missing JOPLIN, Mo. (NY Times) — The number of people missing after a tornado devastated this city has been reduced to 232 from about 1,500, officials said Thursday, as firefighters continued to work their way through mounds of broken concrete and twisted metal that were once homes and shops but that may now be concealing dozens of bodies, four days after the tornado touched down here. The list of the missing — which was released Thursday — was narrowed down and complied, officials said, by using records from temporary

shelters, hospital logs and cellphone use. State and local authorities, however, were not able to say precisely how many of the 232 people listed as missing were also among the 125 people who had been declared dead. Officials would only say that not all of the dead had been listed among the 232 missing. The tally of the missing has been anxiously awaited by family members for days, but in some ways the announcement confused, rather than clarified, what families have said has been a painful process.
Judge strikes down Wis. law curbing unions (NY Times) — Ruling that Republicans in the State Senate had violated the state’s open meetings law, a judge in Wisconsin dealt a blow to them and to Gov. Scott Walker on Thursday by granting a permanent injunction striking down a new law curbing collective bargaining rights for many state and local employees. Judge Maryann Sumi of Dane County Circuit Court said the Senate vote on March 9, coming after 13 Democratic state senators had fled the state, failed to comply with an open meetings law requiring at least two hours notice to the public. The Wisconsin Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in the case on June 6 , and Republican lawmakers are hoping that the court overturns Judge Sumi’s ruling and reinstates the law. The State Senate could choose simply to pass the bill again while assuring proper notice. But some political experts say there might be some obstacles to reenacting the vote because some Democrats could conceivably flee the state again, and some Republican Senators are frightened about pending recall elections.

There were three motor vehicle crashes in the span of a week last year on 1-295 southbound, Latti recalled. "We looked at what we did

to keep up with," Latti said. This job, priced at nearly $24 million in the Greater Portland area, involves "rehabilitation" of Tukeys Bridge. That means crews are removing the top layer and the deck down to the support beams and rebuilding the bridge surface, Latti explained. Crews working on the bridge, located between the Franklin Street and Washington Avenue exits, installed a concrete barrier that separates Washington Avenue from I-295 northbound, making Washington a local road with no freeway access, Maine DOT noted Thursday. This concrete barrier completely closes off Exit 8 from northbound I-295 traffic, the state warned. “Because drivers will tempo-

"Once this project is done, we'll have really rehabilitated the entire length of 295, which runs from Scarborough up to Gardiner," Latti said. From now through the summer, however, drivers will need to slow down and watch for lane closures and construction activity, officials warned. State transportation officials also advise drivers to expect delays or take the Maine Turnpike for those not planning on stopping in Portland. Mostly, be patient. "When you start to limit the capacity of the busiest road in the state, there are going to be traffic delays," Latti warned.
At 10:30 a.m. Monday, the city of Portland and the Harold T.

Guest speakers include U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree; City Councilor Cheryl Leeman, also a representative of U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe; Cheverus High School President and Parade Chaplain Father William Campbell; and Portland Mayor Nicholas Mavodones. The Maine Center for the Deaf will provide interpreter services. Following the speeches, the event will conclude with a wreath laying ceremony at the monument. Portland Police Department Color Guard and the Portland Fire Department Color Guard will be marching as well as the Portland and Deering High School band, the AMVETS Post 25 Color Guard, Boy Scouts of America, Girls Scouts of America and much more.

In wake of natural disasters, Red Cross needs help of Mainers Editor, Mainers, America needs your help. A recordbreaking spring storm season has decimated entire towns and devastated countless lives. The American Red Cross has launched 29 separate relief operations in 22 states since March 31. Wildfires in Texas, flooding along swollen rivers and the seemingly constant rash of angry tornadoes have led to the deployment of over 9,100 American Red Cross volunteers from all 50 states – including over 20 volunteers and counting from Maine – to help those in need. Whether it is the tsunami in Japan or the earthquake in Haiti, the Red Cross aids anyone around the world who needs it. The devastation brought by the most recent spring storms has occurred right in our backyard and the response will cost the American Red Cross an estimated $41 million. As we know, Mainers are not immune to disaster. Floods in Ft. Kent, tornadoes and ice storms across the state, and fires on a daily basis have impacted the lives of countless Mainers, and you continue to demonstrate your willingness to help a neighbor in need. Our neighbors need your helping hand once again. Since the beginning of April, the American Red Cross has served more than 2.1 million meals and snacks, and distributed over 1.1 million items like tarps and work gloves to help people in need as a result of the spring storms. There is more to be done. Mainers, America needs you now. Please support disaster relief and your American Red Cross. To learn more, go to www.maineredcross.org or call (207) 874-1192. Dave Thompson CEO, Maine Red Cross

MaineHealth’s not for profit, except when they are MaineHealth gave me a great idea today. I own a two-family home here in town. With the costs associated with owning a 100-year-old home, taxes, the ever increasing cost to heat the place, and the “mysterious” increase in the power bill since the switch to the new meters, I’ve been operating at a break even point for the last year or so. Now, with acting city manager Pat Finnigan’s budget that after a token cut by the council imposes a 2 percent tax increase for Portlanders who have the audacity to own an eighth of an acre in the middle of the city, I’ve been put over the edge — I’ll no longer make a profit on my little apartment house. So, the logical next step is to file my 501-3c papers and become a nonprofit organization. I’ll immediately turn the house over to my new nonprofit. It will get the car, too. If I could sign myself over to it, I would as well because it seems that’s the only way to get tax relief in Portland. MaineHealth just finished making over the old Sears Roebuck building down on Free Street. They did such a great job
Jeffrey S. Spofford ––––– Ayuh! that the refurbishing increased the tax value of the building. It looks so fabulous and we should all be thankful that they have taken an old blighted building and given it a sprucing-up. So thankful, in fact, that we should all do something for them. How about giving them one hundred thousand dollars! They deserve it, and after all, they’re not for profit. Well, at least they’re not making a profit on ALL the floors of the building. See, the new MaineHealth building has a few floors within that are their profit centers. They’ll have us believe that these subsidiaries have nothing to do with the company’s main focus, the profit areas are walled off and the workers are levitated to the second floor profit center on their way to work and sent down exterior chutes at the end of the day. This way, profit types
have no contact with the not-forprofit do-gooders on the first floor. So MaineHealth wants a tax break on the parts of the building where non-profit work is being performed and it looks like they’ll get it, too. See, the laws over the years have migrated from wording to protect “us,” to wording that benefits “them.” So now we’re to the point that when a corporation (them) wants to grab a little more profit, ahem, I mean, more money to pay their executives millions, they’re probably going to get it. John Anton, the only person on the city council that speaks and votes for the “us” crowd gets it right when he says it’s not right and the law should be changed. But it won’t be. They have a lot more money left over from all that profit they’re not making to pay people to camp out in Augusta and make sure of it. The last check I wrote to my lobbyist bounced. And there will be no cut in services to MaineHealth or their precious Medical Center in the West End. We’ll still plow the roads around it in the winter and repair them in the warmer months. see SPOFFORD page 5

Maybe we’ll use a little less salt on the ice, but I doubt it. MaineHealth claims the service they provide to the community more than makes up for the tax cut they’ll receive for their headquarters. Perhaps, but it seems to me that a Portlander pays the same for a hospitalization as does a person from Gorham. The only difference is the guy from Gorham isn’t sweeping the street outside the hospital. That’s why they should pay up. But instead they are going to take
advantage of a law they probably helped pen and take just a little bit more from you and I. So join me at a law office near you and file for nonprofit status. This way we can ask for OUR tax break.

Salt, which formed in 1973 in Kennebunk, offers documentary studies Writing instructor Melissa Falcon did not immediately return an email about her status with the school. Rosenthal, who teaches the radio program, and Jennifer Smith-Mayo, who teaches approaches and issues, also did not respond to emails. Galluzzo said she has already begun the process of finding replacements, and that interest in the positions has been high. “We've already had a lot of interest and inquiries about positions that we have open, and it's a great opportunity for Salt to welcome new people to the institute,” she said. Salt, which formed in 1973 in Kennebunk, offers 15-week programs for undergraduate and graduate students that focus on writing, photography and radio documentaries. More than 700 students have attended the school in that time, according to its website. Tuition for the fall 2011 semester costs $9,600.

resigned” from school, which focuses on documentary storytelling from classrooms on Congress Street. “We will certainly miss them, and we are also excited for the new career opportunities that await them,” Galluzzo said. It’s not clear how many instructors left, if they left en masse, or if it was simply a coincidence. Galluzzo did not return a voicemail message seeking additional information. Cardente, a commercial real estate developer who sits on Salt’s board, said yesterday that at least three of four instructors resigned. “My understanding, according to the instructors that have left, is that they are off to do their own freelance kind of work,” he said in a telephone interview. “They have all done a great job for Salt, and it is sad for everyone to see them go, but you can’t
“We will certainly miss them, and we are also excited for the new career opportunities that await them.” — Salt executive director Donna Galluzzo blame someone for wanting to pursue their own work.” Writer Colin Woodard, a former Salt instructor, first reported the news of the resignations on his blog, “World Wide Woodard.” Woodard reports that “veteran teachers” Rob Rosenthal and Kate Philbrick were among the instructors who left the program. Woodward also reports that all four instructors have resigned. Reached by telephone yesterday, Philbrick said she was in the middle of a class and couldn’t speak with a reporter.

The new law, which was passed earlier this month and signed into law May 17, allows Mainers who buy individual insurance policies to purchase them from other New England states. Small businesses could also pool together to buy insurance policies, according to Bangor Daily News. The law, which allows insurance companies to charge a $4 per month fee on policies to cover “high risk” persons, takes effect in 2014. Jackson calls LD 1333, “historic health insurance reform to increase coverage options, reduce premiums, and continue providing health coverage for the most vulnerable Maine people. “

New Jersey plans to leave greenhouse gas initiative New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced Thursday that New Jersey will pull out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) program by the end of this year. RGGI is a regional version of the “cap and trade” carbon trading market, where oil and coal fired power plants ar charged a fee for carbon generation. The Carbon Dioxide allowances are sold on the open market, allowing the proceeds from those sales to fund programs like Efficency Maine. The Maine Legislature rejected a similar proposal on May 11th. At this time, New Jersey’s decision to drop out of the regional market will have an unknown effect on the future of cap and trade legislation.

An elderly Skowhegan couple found shot to death in their home Tuesday morning appears to have died in a murder-suicide, a state police spokesman said. Barbour Flewellen, 86, and Marie Flewellen, 75, were found in their bed at mid-morning by Skowhegan Police. Detectives said Flewellen appears to have shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself. A .22 caliber revolver was found near the bodies, said Steve McCausland, the Maine State Police spokesman. Skowhegan Police say Flewellen had called them to report “two mercy killings” at 10:41 a.m. When police arrived minutes later, they had to force their way into the house and officers found the bodies in a second floor bedroom. No suicide note was found.

Assistant police chief: Ofﬁcers often ‘forced to prioritize’ BIKES from page one
“We need to work more closely with law enforcement so they both better understand bicycling laws and have the conﬁdence to enforce them. I think a lot more people would ride correctly if they knew somebody was going to say something.” — Nancy Grant, executive director of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine laws to feel comfortable enforcing them. “Sometimes they’re not even sure what the laws are and they don’t want to hassle bicyclists,” she said. John Brooking, founder of the Portland Maine Bicycle Commuting group on social networking site MeetUp. com, echoed Grant’s concern that enforcement suffers due to a lack of familiarly with bike laws within police departments. “Officers have to know what the law says and doesn't say, and we have reason to believe that not all of them do,” said Brooking in an email to the Daily Sun. “In some cases it may just be individual officers, in other cases it may be more endemic in the department.” Brooking said a lack of enforcement can lead to a culture of irresponsibility that further divides cyclists and motorists. “Lack of enforcement of these clear violations is part and parcel of cyclists not viewing themselves as

real drivers of vehicles, which by law they are. And when the cyclists don't see themselves as vehicle drivers, no one else will either,” he wrote. To that end, Grant said the Bicycle Coalition is working to connect with law enforcement, having recently hosted a meeting between the group’s education director and the chiefs of some Maine police departments. “We want to have a really cooperative relationship with law enforcement,” she said. Portland assistant police chief Mike Sauschuck said that bike enforcement is “certainly on the radar,” for the department’s officers, but they are often “forced to prioritize” violations. “It really comes down to a hope on our part that people will voluntarily comply with the law,” said Sauschuck. “If we see infractions occur, we take complaints for bicyclists or motorists, [but] there are bunch of different levels of officer discretion.” Sauschuck said that in addition to being a low priority, bike-related violations are often difficult to follow up on. “If you’re sitting three cars back and a bike works its way through the red light, is an officer going to use lights and sirens to address that? Probably
not,” he said. An avid cyclist who does a lot of riding in the city, Grant said that cycling scofflaws represent a small part of the local bike community, and are often just uninformed. “I think the vast majority of the riders who aren’t obeying the rules either simply don't know or don't follow any rules anywhere,” she said. City Councilor Dave Marshall, a member of the Portland Transportation Committee and a bike commuter, said that while there are already rules on the books governing bike safety, “we could certainly use more enforcement.” “It could probably go a long way towards getting other bicyclists to comply with the rules,” Marshall said, who like Grant, acknowledges that a small percentage of the city’s cycling populace account for a majority of the violations. Most of the bicycle-related discussion coming out of the city's Transportation Committee has been in regards to infrastructure improvements, said Marshall, who suggested that further education might make an increased focus on enforcement unnecessary. see ENFORCEMENT page 12
in six distinct areas, Maine received an “F” in the category of enforcement. The state’s overall grade on the study was a “B”, with the state excelling in legislation, education and encouragement, and infrastructure, evaluation and planning. Many in the local and statewide bicycling community acknowledge a lack of such enforcement both on the driver and cyclist side of the equation, and suggest that a lack of police familiarity with cycling law could be partially to blame. “I do think it is the area we are the weakest in," said Nancy Grant, executive director of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine and a Portland resident. "We need to work more closely with law enforcement so they both better understand bicycling laws and have the confidence to enforce them. I think a lot more people would ride correctly if they knew somebody was going to say something.” Laws governing bicycling in Maine are laid out in Title 29-A of state law and require cyclists to ride with the flow of traffic and as far to the right as practicable when slower than other traffic, stay off sidewalks, use hand signals and use lights and reflectors for nighttime riding. Bicyclists cannot convey more people than a bike is designed to carry, and those 16 and under must wear helmets at all times. Grant said that Portland Police are often not familiar enough with cycling

Bayside recycling lot experiencing a litter problem
City public works employees Craig Pyy and Keith Forest load a couch dumped at the Bayside recycling lot into a city trash truck Tuesday. Trash dumping at the site is an increasing problem that now requires the city to perform clean-up of the lot daily. Pyy says locking the area overnight has helped but because the site is left largely unmonitored, the dumping continues, adding, “Weekends are the worst.” (JEFFREY S. SPOFFORD PHOTO)
ABOVE: Portland Public Services workers are shown in a construction zone beyond the Bayside snow pile, near the recycling lot, where wind-blown trash can be seen on the pile’s perimeter. Recent warm weather has largely melted the pile of snow, which accumulated from winter plowing and snow removal, but the garbage remains. (DAVID CARKHUFF PHOTO)

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have the key to making money. Instead of merely learning what to do or going through the motions that someone has laid out for you, you take the exact actions that will produce value for others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be people around you who know more and have more success in a certain area. You have more knowledge and expertise in an entirely different realm. So think of yourself as an equal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your personal power increases at your will. “Keep your chin up” is not merely a metaphor; it’s a physical suggestion that will change the way people treat you today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your ﬁrst impulse is usually a generous one, but be careful today not to over-give. You could create an unhelpful dependency. Opt to teach others what you know instead of doing it for them. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A relationship may feel stagnant, but that’s about to change as you ask yourself a magic question: “How can I truly make this person’s life better?” Your musings will produce solutions. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 27). You are so attractive, in part because you seize opportunities to improve yourself and radiate happiness. Your community involvement increases in the months to come. You have something to sell, and you’ll bring in more than anticipated for it. A spiritual calling will lead to adventure. August and September are romantic. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 10, 2, 38 and 4.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have strong feelings for someone, though you don’t have them all the time -- only when you let yourself. Today, when you are near this person, everything seems luminous. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to be appreciated for the full range of who you are. But there’s so much to you that some people won’t be able to understand. So you’ll cultivate friendships with many different people. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It seems that everyone around you wants to be bigger than life and famous for it. You don’t. You are truly wise, realizing that the ordinary life-sized life is the perfect size to live in an extraordinarily beautiful way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are big events on the horizon. The special dates are to be celebrated in particular ways, and it will all require a great deal of organization on your behalf. Make preparations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You arrived at this place because you dreamed about it. Some of the dreams were what you wanted, and some were what you didn’t want. The two kinds have collided to create this current reality. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t have to sample everything to know what you like and don’t like. You’re intuitive, and you get a sense about things before you dive in completely. So don’t let anyone pressure you. Believe in your subconscious leanings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll meet someone who is aligned with your values and principles -- a new and true friend. Not every true friend is this much like you. There are people you love with whom you have far less in common.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, May 27, the 147th day of 2011. There are 218 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On May 27, 1941, amid rising world tensions, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed an “unlimited national emergency” during a radio address from the White House. The British Royal Navy sank the German battleship Bismarck off France, with a loss of some 2,000 lives, three days after the Bismarck sank the HMS Hood. On this date: In 1861, Chief Justice Roger Taney, sitting as a federal circuit court judge in Baltimore, ruled that President Abraham Lincoln lacked the authority to suspend the writ of habeas corpus (Lincoln disregarded the ruling). In 1896, 255 people were killed when a tornado struck St. Louis, Mo., and East St. Louis, Ill. In 1935, the Supreme Court struck down the National Industrial Recovery Act. In 1936, the Cunard liner RMS Queen Mary left England on its maiden voyage to New York. In 1937, the newly completed Golden Gate Bridge connecting San Francisco and Marin County, Calif., was opened to pedestrian traffic (vehicular traffic began crossing the bridge the next day). In 1985, in Beijing, representatives of Britain and China exchanged instruments of ratification on the pact returning Hong Kong to the Chinese in 1997. In 1993, five people were killed in a bombing at the Uffizi (oo-FEET’-zee) museum of art in Florence, Italy. One year ago: On the defensive more than five weeks into the nation’s worst-ever oil spill, President Barack Obama insisted his administration, not oil giant BP, was calling the shots in the still-unsuccessful response.

Bike shop owner: ‘It’s important that the law goes both ways’ ENFORCEMENT from page 8
“It’s certainly worth putting some attention on enforcing the rules, but you also want to educate the public about what the rules are,” he said. Josh Cridler, owner of local bike retail and repair shop Portland Velocipede, said that an increased focus on enforcement could go a long way in strengthening the relationship between the cyclist and motorist who share the city’s streets. “It would get cars to realize that it’s going both ways. I think that when just cars are getting pulled over and see a bike not following a law, that gets people more angry about bicycles on the road,” said Cridler. “It’s important that the law goes both ways, if one party sees the other party following the rules, everybody falls into suit.” But Brooking said there could be some real resistance to more stringent enforcement. “The question
for more enforcement regarding bicycle related laws is a sticky one for cyclists. Many are content to leave well enough alone, fearing that pushing for more enforcement generally will result in more harassment about assertive lane position than about real violations such as red light adherence and night visibility,” he wrote. While they all agree the city could beef up its enforcement efforts, none of those interviewed supported the idea of forcing bicyclists to be registered and licensed through the city, an idea recently floated by a state Assemblyman in the New York City borough of Queens. Two bills introduced by Michael G. DenDekker would have required commercial cyclists to pay a $50 registration fee and all other cyclists to pay a $25 registration fee. The measure was in response to a number of complaints DenDekker said he received from constituents, who complained that unsafe
cyclists were not being held accountable. “Constituents were complaining that if a bike is involved in any incident and they ride away, there is no way to identify them,” DenDekker told the New York Times. “I think it would hurt the perception of our bike friendliness,” said Grant about this idea. “Other states in the country have tried the registration requirement and they’ve all abandoned it because it’s so hard to enforce and the fees that are generated end up being less than the cost of administering the registration program,” she said. “We would rather have enforcement groups working on safety than whether people have paid a fee or not,” she said. Sauschuck said that while he would be open to a discussion about stricter enforcement and the potential for registration, “at this point, I don’t think we are there.”

ANNIE’S MAILBOX Dear Annie: I am in an awkward social situation. My 3-year-old daughter and I were invited to join a group of moms and children at a local park. At ﬁrst, it was great, but now the other mothers have decided they don’t like me. They don’t say it to my face, and they aren’t obviously rude, but they mostly ignore me when I speak, and if they do respond, their answers are curt. I have tried being extra nice, but I am still treated like an outcast. My daughter loves playing with the children in this group, and since she doesn’t get a lot of social interaction, I do not want to take these friendships away from her. I have considered sitting at a different table, but I’m afraid the other mothers will think me rude and will then forbid their children from playing with mine or treat my daughter unfairly. I know if I tell them I feel I’m being treated poorly, they will deny it. I am not the ﬁrst person they have kicked out of the group. What do I do? -- Socially Inept Dear Inept: That crowd sounds like high-school mean girls who never outgrew their cliquishness. We strongly recommend you ﬁnd a substitute playgroup that gets together at another time or in a different location. Your daughter is young enough to get over the loss of these friendships if you don’t make a big deal out of it, and she will make new friends. Meanwhile, continue to be nice until you can extricate yourself. Dear Annie: I am in need of wedding etiquette advice. Both my ﬁance and I are entering the Army after we marry, although we aren’t sure exactly when. We do not wish to receive gifts because neither of us has storage space, nor can we afford to rent it. When we enter the military, we will be
gone for six weeks of basic training and another six months for advanced individual training. Obviously, we would ﬁnd it much more practical to receive money. Is there any way to ask our guests for cash instead of gifts? Could we ask them to send gifts at a later date when we return from training? We considered renewing our vows in a year and getting gifts then. What do you think? -- Future Army Bride and Soldier Dear Future Bride: People are going to get you gifts regardless of what you want them to do. It is impolite to tell guests to give you money, but you can ask your parents and friends to spread the word. To be on the safe side, you also should register at a store where you can return the gifts and get cash or credit. And while we aren’t particularly in favor of them, popular registries also include intangibles, such as honeymoons and house down payments. Regardless of what your guests choose to give, we hope you will show appropriate appreciation in your thank-you note. Congratulations and best wishes. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Maria in Texas,” who fears abusing her child. She should contact Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ascasupport.org) to begin the process of healing the damage caused by being an abused child, which will then stop her from abusing her own children. I was in that same repetitive trap 28 years ago. The group therapy at ASCA is life changing and lifesaving. Please recommend this to those who ﬁnd themselves repeating what was done to them as children. -- Pennsylvania Dear Pennsylvania: Thank you for providing this resource to our readers. It will surely help.

Tours of Spring Crossing housing in Westbrook 1 p.m. Westbrook’s newest affordable housing community for senior citizens gets its ﬁrst ofﬁcial viewing Friday, June 3, at 1 p.m. at an open house for federal, state, and local ofﬁcials — along with the public.

‘Refashioned’ at the PMA 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. May 21 through July 31, the Portland Museum of Art presents “Refashioned.” “Inherent in the structure of a garment is the story of its purpose, time, and place. Contemporary artists, Lauren Gillette (York, Maine), Anne Lemanski (Spruce Pine, North Carolina), and Angelika Werth (Nelson, British Columbia), use the conﬁguration of an article of clothing or hairstyle as an armature for historical narratives. Their work begins with the desire to communicate details of a life revealed in the conventions of outward appearance. In sculptural jackets, hairstyles, and dresses, the artists reconstruct identities, reuse materials, and reinvent historical personas. The exhibition will feature 21 objects lent by the artists. Refashioned is the third in a series of exhibitions called Circa that explores compelling aspects of contemporary art in the state of Maine and

company, hosts its annual gala Dinner/Dance & Auction at the Sable Oaks Marriott in South Portland. This year’s gala supports the company’s 17th season main stage performance: Donizetti’s The Daughter of the Regiment (La Fille du Régiment); and the gala is French-themed. PORTopera Dinner/Dance guests dine and dance in elegance. The evening begins with a cocktail hour, with wine and hors d’oeuvres. Master of Ceremonies is Frank E. Reilly, spouse of gala co-chair Sharon Reilly, and auctioneer is Tom Saturley. The Bob Charest Band provides live music for dancing and listening until 11 p.m. Dinner is classically French and opera-inspired. Entrees include Chicken Marengo; according to legend, Chicken Marengo is an entrée ingeniously crafted by Napoleon’s chef after a military conquest, the Battle of Marengo, and thusly named. For vegetarians, Crêpes Vivandiere takes its name from vivandieres, the women attached to regiments of soldiers whose duties were to sell wine for their canteens. Marie, the lead female in La Fille du Régiment, is a ﬁctional example of a vivandiere. Items up for auction include “walk-on” roles in the opera performance as well as a week in a Swiss chalet, an exclusive PORTopera design pendant crafted by Peapod Jewelers, opera trips to New York, Washington, Santa Fe and San Francisco and more. The gala is PORTopera’s largest fundraiser each year, allowing the opera to continue bringing the joy of opera and music to Maine year after year. The gala is open to the public. Tickets are $125 per person, and tables of 8 or 10 are available. Tickets must be purchased in advance through the PORTopera ofﬁce (879-7678). Suggested dress is black tie. PORTopera will present The Daughter of the Regiment on July 28 and 30 at Portland’s Merrill Auditorium. For more information, visit www.portopera.org.

Biddeford man pleads guilty to hate crime DAILY SUN STAFF REPORT
A Biddeford man who pleaded guilty to several charges including violations of the Maine Civil Rights Act has been sentenced to nine months in jail, state officials announced. Adam D. Goodwin, 36, pleaded guilty in York County Superior Court to assault, interference with constitutional and civil rights, and a criminal violation of a civil rights injunction. He was sentenced yesterday by Judge Arthur Brennan. The charges stem from a Dec. 18, 2010 incident involving Goodwin and a mixed-race couple at Rapid Ray’s Diner in Biddeford. Goodwin was accused of making a derogatory remark to the couple. When the victim, a black male, responded, Goodwin “closed his fist and punched (the victim) in the head," the attorney general's office reported. “It is unacceptable that acts of violence are committed against complete strangers because of their race or national origin. We will continue to vigorously pursue and prosecute those who commit crimes driven by hatred and intolerance,” Maine Attorney General William J. Schneider said in a statement. At the time of the assault, Goodwin was already under an injunction resulting from a 2008 assault against a Jewish man that was motivated by anti-Semitism, state officials said in a press release. Since 1992 the Maine Attorney General’s office has obtained over 200 injunctions against individuals under the Maine Civil Rights Act. Violations of those injunctions are Class D crimes punishable by up to 364 days in jail. There have only been eight criminal violations of these civil rights orders, all resulting in significant jail sentences, Schneider said in the release.
