PORTLAND’S DAILY NEWSPAPER
Man pleads not guilty to fatal shootings BY MATTHEW ARCO THE PORTLAND DAILY SUN
The man accused of gunning down the mother of his four children and a longtime friend pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder in Portland Thursday. Joel Hayden, 29, waved to the family members of his former girlfriend who he's accused of shooting to death when he walked into court Thursday. He was arrested in July after police say he shot Renee Sandora, 27, and his former friend Trevor Mills, 28, of New Bedford, Mass., at Sandora's New Gloucester home. The only time Hayden spoke during his arraign-
ment at Cumberland County Superior Court was when he responded "not guilty" after Judge Nancy Mills asked for his plea on both murder counts. Hayden held his shackled hands up to his face in an attempt to block the view of video and still media cameras. "Tell my kids I love them," he said twice to Sandora's family as he walked past them on his way out of the courtroom.
Hayden had four children with Sandora, including 3-month-old twins. Sandora's family — some of which wore black T-shirts with Sandora's picture on them and the words "my heart" and "rest easy" — said the kids were in the care of their grandmother. "Their lives will never be the same," said Rhonda Estes, Sandora's twin sister, referring to her nieces and nephews. "Her 2-year-old has been asking for her," she said. "We'll never know why he did it." Estes, who was joined by her mother and see SHOOTINGS page 13

When 65 roses are handed out to the first runners across the finish line Sunday at the 65 Roses 5K Race, it's likely that Danielle Sterling will be thinking about Aaron Sterling. "To have this dedicated to my brother is overwhelming sometimes," Danielle said of Sunday's fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which will take place on Portland's East End. Danielle is married to Tyler Sterling, and his brother, Aaron Sterling, passed away from cystic fibrosis on Aug. 27. He was 30. The second annual 65 Roses 5K Race is dedicated to Aaron Sterling. "He was amazing, he never let the disease define who he was," Danielle recalled. "He was really determined to live his life the way he wanted to live it. I think he definitely did more with his life in 30 years than most people do in their entire lives." According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, "cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide).

Most of the 15 candidates for elected mayor spent the early part of the race talking big picture and touting leadership skills and relevant life experience. But with less than seven weeks to go until Election Day, several of the candidates are sharpening their message and offering specific plans to improve the economy, infrastructure and city services. Wednesday’s forum at Ocean Avenue School was a prime example. In front of more than 100 people, candidates used their opening statements to introduce new ideas aimed at attracting voters. Afterward, candidates broke out into separate tables to meet with voters one on one. The city currently has a ceremonial mayor chosen from among the nine city councilors to serve a single term. Under the new system, which was created when voters approved charter changes last fall, the mayor see CANDIDATES page 3

Study assails single-sex education (NY Times) — Singlesex education is ineffective, misguided and may actually increase gender stereotyping, a team of psychologists asserts in a paper to be published Friday. The report, “The Pseudoscience of Single Sex Schooling,” to be published in Science magazine by eight social scientists who are founders of the nonprofit American Council for CoEducational Schooling, is likely to ignite a new round of debate and legal wrangling about the effects of single-sex education. It asserts that “sex-segregated education is deeply misguided and often justified by weak, cherry-picked or misconstrued scientific claims rather than by valid scientific evidence.” But the strongest argument against single-sex education, the article said, is that it reduces boys’ and girls’ opportunities to work together, and reinforces sex stereotypes. “Boys who spend more time with other boys become increasingly aggressive,” the article said. “Similarly, girls who spend more time with other girls become more sex-typed.” The lead author, Diane F. Halpern, is a past president of the American Psychological Association who holds a named chair in psychology at Claremont McKenna College in California. She is an expert witness in litigation in which the American Civil Liberties Union is challenging single-sex classes — which have been suspended — at a school in Vermilion Parish, La. Arguing that no scientific evidence supports the idea that single-sex schooling results in better academic outcomes, the article calls on the Education Department to rescind its 2006 regulations weakening the Title IX prohibition against sex discrimination in education. Under those rules, single-sex schooling was permitted as long as it was voluntary, students were provided a substantially equal coeducational option and the separation of the sexes substantially furthered an important governmental objective.

BY ELIZABETH BUMILLER AND JANE PERLEZ THE NEW YORK TIMES
WASHINGTON — Pakistan’s intelligence agency aided the insurgents who attacked the American Embassy in Kabul last week, Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate on Thursday. In comments that were the first to directly link Pakistan’s powerful spy agency, the Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence, with an assault on the United States, Admiral Mullen went further than any other American official in blaming the ISI for undermining the American military effort in Afghanistan. The United States has long said that the ISI has close links to Afghan insurgents, particularly the Haqqani

network, but no one has been as blunt as Admiral Mullen. Admiral Mullen is to retire at the end of this month, and coming from him the statements carried exceptional weight. He has been the American military official who has led the effort for years to improve cooperation with the Pakistanis. But relations have reached a nadir since American commandoes killed Osama bin Laden deep inside Pakistan in May. Pakistani officials were not told of the raid in advance, and questions remain about whether Pakistani intelligence was sheltering the Qaeda leader. The attack on the American embassy, and ISI support for the Haqqani network — which also forms one of the most lethal parts of the insurgency attacking American forces in Afghanistan — is the latest point of tension.
Pakistan’s intelligence agency has supported the Haqqanis as a way to further Pakistani influence in Afghanistan. On Thursday Admiral Mullen made clear that support extended to increasingly high-profile attacks aimed directly at the United States. “With ISI support, Haqqani operatives planned and conducted that truck bomb attack, as well as the assault on our embassy,” Admiral Mullen told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “We also have credible evidence that they were behind the June 28th attack against the Inter-Continental Hotel in Kabul and a host of other smaller but effective operations.” In short, he said, “the Haqqani network acts as a veritable arm of Pakistan’s InterServices Intelligence Agency.”
House G.O.P. regroups after spending bill defeat BY JENNIFER STEINHAUER AND ROBERT PEAR THE NEW YORK TIMES
WASHINGTON — Republicans took emergency steps Thursday to clear the way for a new measure to fund the government through mid-November and provide assistance to natural disaster victims, after an embarrassing defeat on Wednesday of a bill that would have offset disaster relief with cuts in other programs. Speaker John A. Boehner met with his Republican conference Thursday afternoon to discuss ways to tweak the bill so that it would pass muster with most of the 48 Republicans who joined Democrats Wednesday to bring the bill down on a vote of 230 to 195. Some Republicans in the meeting sheepishly said they would now vote for the bill — no matter its form, said a person who attended the meeting, but it was clear that to win passage, other steps would be needed to

bring other members on board. The Republicans expected to bring it to the floor later Thursday, after a procedural vote cleared the way for quick action. Many of the Republicans who voted against Wednesday’s measure want even more short-term cuts in spending than those agreed to last summer as part of a deal to lift the debt ceiling, something Democrats in both chambers will not brook. Some Republicans also agreed with Democrats, who tanked the bill over their desire for higher levels of disaster aid for victims of last summer’s natural disasters, without the offsetting spending cuts. Republicans were contemplating shifting the offset from cuts to a loan program that encourages production of energyefficient cars, which enraged Democrats, to another program that would give cover to enough Republicans that they will be willing to vote for the bill. Many Democrats in the House may
not concur with such a solution. “There has never been an offset for disaster assistance,” said Representative Nancy Pelosi in a news conference Thursday, adding that Democrats would not accept a new precedent. Republicans were weighing the idea of ending the offset — one that Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the majority leader of the House, has repeatedly insisted on — or tweaking it in some form. “I hope very much that we are able to see offsets,” said Representative David Dreier of California, the chairman of the Rules Committee, in a floor fight over the measure Thursday. Mr. Dreier said the bill would be “similar to the measure yesterday.” On Thursday, Senate Democrats reiterated that they did not intend to pass a bill without including more money for the Federal Emergency Management Agency than proposed by the House; it was not clear that other forms of offset would pass.
not attracting big campaign donations (New York Times) In Michele Bachmann’s latest campaign video, she stands for 1 minute, 25 seconds next to what looks like a plastic plant, her voice tinny and echoing because it was not recorded with a microphone on her lapel. The low production values could be a metaphor for a presidential campaign increasingly perceived as struggling financially and organizationally. Mrs. Bachmann, who raised millions from small donors around the country while running for Congress from Minnesota, is encountering major headwinds raising money now, people close to the campaign said recently, threatening her ability to stay in the presidential race beyond the Iowa caucuses next year. But Mrs. Bachmann’s difficulties are also of her own making, campaign insiders said, including her inability, so far, to be taken seriously by big-money Republican donors, especially in light of some high-profile stumbles on the campaign trail. And, these insiders said, Mrs. Bachmann resists making fundraising calls to members of the party establishment. “When you raise small-donor money, you go on Fox and say something more or less outrageous and that’s what people contribute to,” said Ed Rollins, who stepped aside recently as Mrs. Bachmann’s campaign manager, citing ill health. “You throw a hand grenade, and people respond.” But to attract big donors, which Mrs. Bachmann needs, “you’ve got to be a serious candidate with serious solutions,” Mr. Rollins added. “That’s a challenge.”

Candidates used their opening statements to introduce new ideas CANDIDATES from page one
position will be full time, come with a four-year term and earn $66,000. Here is a brief recap of what the candidates said during their introductory speeches on Wednesday: Portland firefighter Christopher Vail said above all he’s looking to “unite a city” during his first term. Rather than make a list of campaign promises, Vail said he planned to be a voice for the neighborhoods and “bring common sense” to City Hall. Ethan Strimling, a former state senator and current CEO of LearningWorks, told how he led that agency through a major institutional change, attracted new investment and created about 50 new jobs. More importantly, he said the agency is achieving better outcomes for its clients, many of whom are recent immigrants and teens deemed at risk. That type of systemic improvement and new leadership is what Portland needs right now, he said. Councilor (and current ceremonial mayor) Nick Mavodones outlined a plan to: bring back the Portland-to-Nova Scotia ferry and offer same-day building permits for most small-scale projects and renovations. He also promised to seek new state funds for school construction and renovations, but said he will advocate new city borrowing if the state doesn't pony up. Markos Miller, a Spanish teacher at Deering High School, advocated for a revamped Head Start program and district-wide pre-school to improve student performance. He also promised to improve the city’s crumbling school infrastructure and fight for the city’s “fair share” of federal and state education funding. Jed Rathband, a marketing consultant who led the elected mayor campaign last fall, spent his two minutes outlining a plan for “neighborhood led development,” a process that lets neighborhood leaders in on the discussion for how certain parcels should be redeveloped. Councilor Dave Marshall proposed a revolving loan fund to help property owners convert oil
Mayoral candidate forums The Portland Music Foundation and the Portland Arts and Cultural Alliance are teaming up to present a Portland mayoral forum focused on issues and policies related to the city’s arts, culture and music community on Monday, Oct. 3, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the State Theatre. The West End Neighborhood Association plans to host a mayoral candidate forum at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at Reiche Community Center.
heating systems to natural gas and promised to invest money to repair and renovate the city’s aging schools. He also proposed growing the population to spread the tax burden, developing a “modern streetcar service” to promote greener transportation and institute a 24-hour pothole repair guarantee. Marketing consultant Jodie Lapchick pledged to foster the city’s creative economy, strengthen neighborhood associations and implement the city’s economic development plan, which was introduced this month after 18 months in development. Hamza Haadoow, a Somali immigrant, graduate student and Goodwill employee, promised to make City Hall accessible and open to all residents. Former state representative and Green Party activist John Eder outlined his plan for improving the lot of “working people,” many of whom earn too much for housing subsidies and other programs but still have trouble making ends meet. Eder proposed the construction of 1,000 new housing units downtown, which he would attract through the creation of a new tax break. Eder also wants to develop an affordable health care program for the city's working poor. Councilor Jill Duson compared being a mayoral candidate to applying for a job, and where voters made the hiring decision. Duson told the audience about growing up in a poor Philadelphia suburb, graduating from college and then law school. She also stressed her experience turning around a troubled state agency. She ended with a well quote from Stuart Smalley (played by Al Franken, now a U.S.
Senator): "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me." Richard Dodge reiterated his belief that the city’s biggest problem lies in “City Hall, the people in it, and the city council.” Dodge, a commercial realtor and catering company owner, said city officials by and large have bad attitudes and don’t do enough to move development projects along. He promised to change department heads if necessary, eliminate burdenson regulations and change city code to elect planning board members. Ralph Carmona, a former lobbyist, professor and political aide in California who moved to Maine about a year ago, stressed his background and experience in politics and business. “Experience matters,” Carmona told the audience. Carmona also noted that he is not part of the city Democratic Party’s existing power base. Peter Bryant, a retired merchant mariner, promised to implement heavy-item pick up in the spring and the fall, eliminate the city’s “blue bag” trash program and allow residents to contact him directly with city issues. “One call does it all,” he said. Former state senate majority leader Michael Brennan said he believed it was important to “get the people on board” with the new elected mayor position first and foremost. He also told the crowd that he helped rewrite the state’s school funding formula in a way that helped build two new schools in Portland, including Ocean Avenue School. Brennan also said he had a plan for getting back $1 million in state education funding that the Legislature shifted elsewhere last year. Charles Bragdon, a taxi driver and publisher of the Portland Maine Gazette, promised to tap into an underused city loan fund to help small businesses grow. Bragdon noted that he loved Portland and that Portland made him who he was. He also said that the city should try to grow its population back to about 85,000, which is about 20,000 more people than Portland currently has and 8,000 more people than it's ever had.

Police seek expensive rug taken from van Police are seeking the public’s help regarding a valuable rug taken from a vehicle. A West End resident reported a stolen 1998 Econoline van on Sept. 21. The van had been parked in the man’s driveway the previous evening. According to Det. Sgt. Dean Goodale, the vehicle was unlocked and the key was in the ignition. The owner told police that there were tools in the van, and it contained an Oriental rug that was too large for his apartment. Westbrook police recovered the van on Center Street in Westbrook the morning of Sept. 22. The victim’s tools and the rug were gone but the rug padding was not taken. The victim described the carpet as an 18-foot by 8-foot, 3-inch Karas-
tan, valued at approximately $2,000 to $3,000. Anyone having information is asked to call police at 874-8584. — Marge Niblock
Gov. got campaign dollars from jailed eatery owner The brothers accused of harboring and employing illegal immigrants bailed out of the Cumberland County Jail Thursday, jail officials said. Guillermo Fuentes, of Westbrook, and his brother Hector Fuentes, of Waterville, were arrested by federal agents Wednesday. They are accused of hiring illegal immigrants to work at three of their restaurants — in Westbrook, Waterville and Biddeford — and even allowing up to eight to live inside one of the restaurants, according to court documents. Hector Fuentes, a Mexican citizen,
was ordered to surrender his passport and is barred from traveling outside of Maine without prior approval, according to published reports. Gov. Paul LePage, the former mayor of Waterville, held his primary election night party at Hector Fuentes’ Waterville restaurant, according to WMTW Channel 8. Hector Fuentes donated $750 to the governor’s general election campaign and Fuentes’ business, Cancun LLC, contributed $250 to the governor’s primary election campaign, the station reported. The LePage campaign spent $1,800 on food at the Cancun Mexican Restaurant, where the party was held on June 8, 2010. The campaign later spent $1,902 on food on Nov. 10, 2010. A LePage spokeswoman, Adrienne Bennett, was reported saying that the governor asked Hector Fuentes if everything at the restaurant “was legit.” According to LePage, Fuentes’ response was “absolutely,” Bennett said. — Matthew Arco
Police likely to give update on human remains found along St. John’s Street Portland police said yesterday that they hope to release some information today regarding the identity of the human remains found Wednesday in the woods off of St. John’s Street. Lt. Gary Rogers, a police spokesman, said Thursday he had some information on the case but declined to go any further. The remains were found by a pair walking along the railroad tracks near the 500 block of St. John’s St. at about 2 a.m. on Wednesday. Officials said the remains had likely been there for several weeks. Rogers said Wednesday that police found nothing to lead investigators to believe that the death was suspicious. — Matthew Arco

Creative economy can beneﬁt from patronage of someone like Sussman Editor, While I generally share Mr. Milneil’s concerns over the dubious nature of cultural development (“Don’t let creative economy grow stagnant or get stifled,” columns, Thursday, Sept. 22), I nevertheless disagree with some of his assertions. For one thing, artists have long sought the support of patrons and funders of the sort that Donald Sussman is; and great art is just as often of the establishment as it is subversive. Indeed, someone needs to buy the all the art that people are making. But more to the point, with the right kind of help from our pols a stronger art scene and stronger economy can go hand in hand. For example, in the early 1960s artists were illegally occupying industrial spaces in an area called the South Houston Industrial District (aka “Hell’s Hundred Acres”). A loose group of these artists known as the Artists Tenants Association made an agreement with the city to allow for live/work spaces for light manufacturing (i.e., the production of art). They cited as precedence the fact that small shop keepers lived behind their storefronts. In order to live in one of these transitional loft spaces you needed be an artist and to go through an artist certification process; occasionally folks would try to fake their way in. The neighborhood became known as SoHo and it had a pretty good run as an artist’s district. High income people were attracted to the area and that boosted the economy, however it was see LETTERS page 5

How we could ban Pit Bulls in the state of Maine I started carrying a knife when I take my afternoon walks with my son around the city six months ago. It’s nothing fancy, the knife. It’s a small thing I grab out of the silverware drawer we picked up at the fancy kitchen store in the mall a few years back. It has a little plastic protection sleeve — perfect for the quick draw. I didn’t start carrying this knife to fend against the underclass littering our streets. They’re relatively harmless during the light of day, tucked inside their Parkside apartments on their unsheathed stained, striped mattresses. I started carrying the knife to protect my son and myself from their Pit Bulls. The whole sordid affair that brought on this decision came to me when my wife came home one afternoon crying and visibly shaken after walking my son down near Deering Oaks. My son looked no worse for the wear and just as happy as could be, and because she wasn’t able yet to articulate what had happened to make her upset, and knowing the young ‘in was okay, my mind started to imagine the possibilities. “What happened to the car?” was the first thing out of my mouth. “Nothing,” she replied.
Jeffrey S. Spofford ––––– Ayuh! Then came the story. They were walking up a street when off a porch ran an unleashed Pit Bull. It was visibly angry, and came right for her and my son who, at the time, was still in a stroller. She turned away from the stroller, and the dog stopped in front of her, got into attack position, and started to growl. She screamed up to the porch from where the dog had galloped where the owners stood, just watching. No calling to the dog, no attempt to come after the animal — they just stood there. I was angry, and wanted to act, but my wife, smartly, refused to divulge the address of the offending dragon owner. So I was left to my own devices to stew and to create elaborate fantasies in my mind as to what I would do, now that I was going to carry a knife, to a Pit Bull should it latch on to a limb. I decided that I would take the knife, slit the dog’s throat,

While I’ll probably just run like a wuss and call the police, the attack itself is certainly a possibility. But a guy can dream.

A few words with Iran’s president Before sparks began flying between me and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, he began my interview with an unusual olive branch: “I would like to, with your permission, greet all of your readers as well as Web viewers and wish all of them the success and blessings of the Almighty.” Mr. Ahmadinejad is a complex, even bizarre, figure. A firebrand with a penchant for making explosive public statements, he is small in person, subdued and very soft-spoken. Even when I pushed him hard on human rights abuses and nuclear deceptions, he responded in even tones while claiming that Iran is manifestly more democratic than the United States. Another olive branch came hours after our conversation with the release of the two American hikers who had been imprisoned unjustly for two years in Iran. Mr. Ahmadinejad didn’t even attempt to suggest that they were spies, but he bristled at my questions about them. He claimed that they had entered Iran illegally and would have merited punishment in any country. This was Mr. Ahmadinejad’s only print interview on his visit to the United Nations General Assembly, and he made a significant effort to be friendly and conciliatory. Most important, he repeated an offer made in a Washington Post interview this month to stop all nuclear enrichment if the West would supply nuclear fuel enriched to a 20 percent level. He
Nicholas D. Kristof ––––– The New York Times insisted that Iran will happily give up its enrichment processing if it can get this enriched uranium for “cancer treatment medication.” “If they were willing to sell us the 20 percent enriched uranium, we would have preferred to buy it,” he said. “It would have been far less expensive. It’s as though you wish to purchase a vehicle for yourself. No one is willing to sell it to you, then you must set up your own production line to produce your own vehicle.” This sounds very much like an incipient deal that Mr. Ahmadinejad initially welcomed two years ago but was later scotched by the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The chief of Iran’s nuclear program, Fereydoon Abbasi, seemed to reiterate recently that any such deal was dead. But when I raised those points, Mr. Ahmadinejad insisted that there had never been any daylight between himself and the supreme leader on the nuclear issue and that Mr. Abbasi was not opposed today. When I asked skeptically if Mr. Ahmadinejad spoke
for the full Iranian leadership, there was a flash of resentment at the question. He insisted that he did, indeed, have full authority. Is this a real offer to stop all enrichment? I don’t know, but it’s worth it for the West to pursue it — without easing sanctions in the meantime. One question is how the West could verify an end to enrichment. I asked Mr. Ahmadinejad about that and noted Iran’s history of deceptions. “We have done nothing wrong,” he said, denying sharply that his country had hidden anything. Mr. Ahmadinejad called for Syria, his ally, to stop its violent crackdown on protesters, cautioning that “with clashes and confrontations problems will not be solved. They will be multiplied.” Oh? What’s the difference with Mr. Ahmadinejad’s own harsh crackdown on dissidents? “In Iran, things were quite different,” he insisted, a bit testy. Many of the dead in Iran were members of security forces, he claimed, suggesting that protesters were not deliberately targeted. I asked Mr. Ahmadinejad what he thought when he saw the famous photos of a young woman, Neda AghaSoltan, lying on the ground and bleeding to death after she had been shot in the chest. A hint of sadness crossed Mr. Ahmadinejad’s face. I thought, for a
moment, that he was going to apologize. Instead, he constructed his own reality: He suggested that she had been murdered by his opponents, working with the BBC, as part of a bizarre snuff film. “We do search for those who are truly guilty of murdering this young lady,” he said. Our interview became more confrontational, and we tussled over Iran’s repression of the Bahai faith and other human rights issues. Mr. Ahmadinejad’s minders were signaling that the interview was ending, but he seemed to enjoy the give-and-take and ignored them. Mr. Ahmadinejad also indulged in a bit of triumphalism. He acknowledged that the West’s “crippling” sanctions against Iran had “worked well.” But he added: “Does Iran face more problems or the United States of America?” He referred to the “collapse” of the American financial system and suggested that Iran’s economy is in better shape. He added that the West will be driven by its weakness to “seek a rapprochement with Iran.” Then the interview was over, and Mr. Ahmadinejad zoomed back from bombast to conciliation. He beamed and told me: “We truly like and love the people of the United States.” For a transcript of my interview with President Ahmadinejad, visit my blog, On the Ground.
Rockefeller Report identiﬁed the arts as an ‘economic multiplier’ LETTERS from page 4
the relaxation of the artist-only laws, and other legislation like the 1982 Loft Law; which eventually pushed out the artists and the remaining manufacturing in favor of luxury lofts and retail. That is not to say that success of SoHo can repeated here, but it does show how smart policy decisions can greatly affect the lives of artists and the cultural life of cities, the Mill in Westbrook being a local, if imperfect, example. Ultimately this is not an either/or proposition. Mr. MilNeil’s point that low-income neighborhoods add culturally vibrancy to cities is borne out historically. Joseph Papp, the impresario of the Public Theater
fought successfully to save low-income housing in lower Manhattan to the benefit of all. But by the same token, the creative economy is real; the people in office in Augusta would not be dumping money into things like the Maine Arts Commission if they did not expect a return on the investment; the famous Rockefeller Report identified the arts as an “economic multiplier” and paved the way to much beneficial arts legislation. Among the many barriers to achieving this is that all too many people — politicians and the public alike — do not know, or seemingly care, very much about art. Ironically this does not stop them from enjoying the vibe at events like the First Friday Art Walk (and the bars and restaurants afterwards).
Unfortunately, most people see paintings as just paintings whether they be by Gerhard Richter or one of the ubiquitous water color seascapes done by a “local artist.” At the same time there is a sentiment that the poor and those living in subsidized housing are somehow noble in doing so; but shouldn’t we thrive for better jobs and higher employment? The creativity and innovation to make Portland an important and more economically developed art scene rests with the policy makers but also with the artists themselves. Zachary Barowitz Portland
Pit Bull encounter: It was visibly angry, and came right for her SPOFFORD from page 4
tanks, then the state should take the next step and ban dumb people from owning Pit Bulls. Of course, the state would have to completely ban the dogs. Though there is a class war going on, singling out a demographic might be showing the deck on the part of the state in an all too blatant fashion. It could be argued that there are responsible Pit Bull owners and that targeting them because the folks known for appliances in the yard parked next to the 89 Mustang 5.0 with the bum transmission they “never quite got to” can’t handle the responsibility is unfair. But doesn’t the state of Maine have a bunch of “nanny laws” that are
unfair? The seatbelt law forces dummies to wear their seatbelts, holding an otherwise responsible person to the flame when he or she simply forgets. Smoking bans in this state target the morons who insisted on smoking around others, when the rest of us smokers knew enough and respected people’s space enough to not smoke around people who it bothered? Piping Plovers rule the shoreline because a couple dudes kicked a nest or two after downing a thirty rack of Pabst. And what about those poor Japanese fishies? None of the above compares to the importance that is the well being of the young children in this state, and it is time to ban ownership of Pit Bulls here. How many attacks — how many
deaths — will it take for the people in Augusta, passing sweeping legislation to combat one instance of voting fraud in ten years, to stop the dangerous owners from possessing animals they are unable to control? Maybe the life of a child isn’t enough. Maybe it will take something government has deemed even more important to protect. Next time you’re at the beach, find a Plover nest. Then, when you’re getting chased by a Pit Bull, lead him right to it. Bring your camera. (Jeffrey S. Spofford manages circulation for The Portland Daily Sun.

Running from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, the drive will focus on collecting food for families served by Wayside and its partner agencies.

This summer, Wayside has experienced a donation drought greater than usual, while the need for Wayside’s food programs and services has continued to rise because of the current, difﬁcult economic climate.”

Public said to be misled on use of the Patriot Act secret, sensitive intelligence program is based on the law and that its statements about the matter have been accurate. Mr. Wyden and Mr. Udall have for months been raising concerns that the government has secretly interpreted a part of the Patriot Act in a way that they portray as twisted, allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct some kind of unspecified domestic surveillance that they say does not dovetail with a plain reading of the statute. The dispute has focused on Section 215 of the Patriot Act. It allows a secret national security court to issue an order allowing the F.B.I. to obtain “any tangible things” in connection with a national security investigation. It is sometimes referred to as the “business records” section because public discussion around it has centered on using it to obtain customer information like hotel or credit card records. But in addition to that kind of collection, the senators contend that the government has also interpreted the provision, based on rulings by the secret national security court, as allowing some other kind of activity that allows the government to obtain private information about people who have no link to a terrorism or espionage case.
BY CHARLIE SAVAGE THE NEW YORK TIMES
WASHINGTON — Two United States senators on Wednesday accused the Justice Department of making misleading statements about the legal justification of secret domestic surveillance activities that the government is apparently carrying out under the Patriot Act. The lawmakers — Ron Wyden of Oregon and Mark Udall of Colorado, both of whom are Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee — sent a letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. calling for him to “correct the public record” and to ensure that future department statements about the authority the government believes is conveyed by the surveillance law would not be misleading. “We believe that the best way to avoid a negative public reaction and an erosion of confidence in U.S. intelligence agencies is to initiate an informed public debate about these authorities today,” the two wrote. “However, if the executive branch is unwilling to do that, then it is particularly important for government officials to avoid compounding that problem by making misleading statements.” The Justice Department denied being misleading about the Patriot Act, saying it has acknowledged that a

"Aaron wouldn't slow down ever, he went hiking and camping and fishing, he loved to cook," Danielle remembered. Aaron attended University of Maine at Orono. He and his fiancee lived in Durham, N.C. In 2010, Kim Anania started the 65 Roses 5K Race in honor of her best friend, Liz Shuman, who continues battling cystic fibrosis. Danielle said she ran the race and won her age group last year. This year, she is on the race committee and plans to run it again in honor of Aaron. "Aaron's parents, my mother and father-in-law, are going to hand out those roses at the end. It's going to be very emotional," she said. Last year, nearly 200 ran, raising $14,000. This year, a variety of sponsors are lined up to support the benefit event. One of the sponsors, Portland Pie Co., welcomes entrants to arrive at the York Street restaurant on Saturday from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. to pick up pre-registration packets or to register for the race. Another sponsor, the Portland Pirates, is offering a voucher to see a Portland Pirates Game in October to entrants who sign up for the race. The race is named after a common pronunciation of “cystic fibrosis,” which comes out “65 roses,” she said, adding that “little kids when they’re in the hospital, can’t pronounce the name.” The 65 Roses 5K Race is on Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8:15 a.m. for a half-mile kids' run and 9 a.m. for the adults' event on Cutter Street on Portland's East End.

By Holiday Mathis they were when you found them. This is difﬁcult when others around you are messy and thoughtless. You may be the only responsible one, but keep up the high standards. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Learning to think differently can be the most difﬁcult habit to change. But it doesn’t have to be so hard. Mostly, you will dwell on the lovely thoughts you prefer, and the shift happens quite naturally. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll create an emotional climate around you. It will be as though you have your own personal weather system following you around wherever you go. It’s quite sunny and fair where you are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The chatter in your head is as distracting as a television blaring when you’re trying to read or converse. You can quiet the mental noise by telling someone trustworthy what’s on your mind, or by writing in a diary. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Meetings are often unnecessary, and today is no exception. However, unnecessary things can still be quite helpful. And today it will beneﬁt everyone to get together and make sure you’re all on the same page. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 23). You approach many areas of your life with a strong sense of professionalism. Because you accept the trials and hard work, you will also accept the rewards. In October, you’ll connect with someone in a ﬂeeting moment and turn this connection into a bond that lasts years. There’s a move in March. You’ll learn a new skill. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 6, 4, 2 and 19.
by Paul Gilligan
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll apply yourself in all sorts of unusual ways to please the powers that be. It works especially well when the one who happens to be in power is you. And you are certainly worthy of a pleasing effort. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will see a relationship from the other person’s point of view, which makes you a kind of emotional genius. The ability to leave yourself and see things as another person might is a rare gift. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You probably won’t feel like taking a direct route. Wandering around requires a great deal of time, but it’s worthwhile. You’ll have different thoughts along this meandering path. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Cupid’s arrow hits. You’re likely to fall in love and stay in love. You may not be falling for another person, though -- it will probably be a project or an area of interest that captures your heart. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll enjoy a day of clear-headedness and ordered thinking. You will be decisive, partly because you feel there’s no time to waste and partly because the right answers seem so obvious to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you’re not sure what to do, you will make the effort to appear knowledgeable. You will be convincing in this endeavor, making others feel at ease. People will believe what you say. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll feel empowered to take on the world, and yet you’ll wisely realize the world doesn’t always need to be “taken on.” Things are already leaning in your direction, so all you have to do is go with the ﬂow. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You always try to leave things better than

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Sept. 23, the 266th day of 2011. There are 99 days left in the year. Autumn arrives at 5:04 a.m. Eastern time. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 23, 1952, Sen. Richard M. Nixon, R-Calif., salvaged his vice-presidential nomination by delivering the “Checkers” speech, in which he defended himself against allegations of improper campaign fundraising. On this date: In 1779, during the Revolutionary War, the American warship Bon Homme Richard, commanded by John Paul Jones, defeated the HMS Serapis in battle. In 1780, British spy John Andre was captured along with papers revealing Benedict Arnold’s plot to surrender West Point to the British. In 1806, the Lewis and Clark expedition returned to St. Louis more than two years after setting out for the Pacific Northwest. In 1846, Neptune was identified as a planet by German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle (GAH’-luh). In 1908, an apparent baserunning error by Fred Merkle of the New York Giants cost his team a victory against the Chicago Cubs and left the game tied 1-1. In 1957, nine black students who’d entered Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas were forced to withdraw because of a white mob outside. In 1962, New York’s Philharmonic Hall (later renamed Avery Fisher Hall) formally opened as the first unit of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. In 1973, former Argentine president Juan Peron won a landslide election victory that returned him to power; his wife, Isabel, was elected vice president. In 1981, the Reagan administration announced plans for what became known as “Radio Marti.” One year ago: The U.S. delegation walked out of a U.N. speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad after he said some in the world had speculated that the U.S. staged the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in an attempt to assure Israel’s survival. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Mickey Rooney is 91. Actress Margaret Pellegrini (“The Wizard of Oz”) is 88. Singer Julio Iglesias is 68. Actor Paul Petersen is 66. Actress-singer Mary Kay Place is 64. Rock star Bruce Springsteen is 62. Rock musician Leon Taylor is 56. Actress Rosalind Chao is 54. Golfer Larry Mize is 53. Actor Jason Alexander is 52. Actress Elizabeth Pena is 52. Actor Chi McBride is 50. Country musician Don Herron is 49. Actor Erik Todd Dellums is 47. Actress LisaRaye is 45. Singer Ani (AH’-nee) DiFranco is 41. Rock singer Sarah Bettens is 39. Recording executive Jermaine Dupri is 39. Actor Kip Pardue is 35. Pop singer Erik-Michael Estrada is 32. Actress Aubrey Dollar is 31. Tennis player Melanie Oudin (oo-DAN’) is 20.

After a quiet off-season in which the Yankees failed to sign the elite pitcher Cliff Lee and saw their bitter rival acquire two marquee hitters, many predicted they would finish behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East. But with the Red Sox in the throes of a collapse, the Yankees were not only able to win the division, but they also did it with ease, brushing aside all competitors with a week remaining in the regular season. It all concluded at the tail end of a long but happy day Wednesday as the Yankees swept the Tampa Bay Rays by the scores of 4-2 in a day-night doubleheader at Yankee Stadium. Those wins, combined with the Red Sox’ 6-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in Boston, gave the Yankees their 12th division crown since the team’s remarkable run of success began in 1996. “It’s not often that we’re considered the underdogs, but I understood it with the moves that they had made,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said, and then added, “But this is a special group. This is a group that knows how to win.”
ANNIE’S MAILBOX Dear Annie: I think my brother-in-law’s wife is attracted to my husband, “James.” James believes this to be true, as well, but he rather enjoys the attention. Whenever we are at his brother’s house, the wife is always ﬂirting with James, touching him and ﬁnding reasons to be near him. When it’s time for us to go, she practically begs him to stay. She also often makes subtle suggestive comments, and this really gets on my nerves. As an added twist, my husband and I are not sexually active. We’ve not been intimate in nearly two years. This was a mutual decision. James is always tired when he gets home from long-distance driving. I’m on two separate antidepressants that just about kill off any shred of sexual interest. A few times, I’ve told James that if he is interested in sex, I’d be quite amenable, but he repeatedly tells me he’s too tired. I asked him why he lets her ﬂirt with him, and he says it’s fun, but insists he’s not interested in having an affair with her or anyone else. We have been married for 12 years and have no children, so he has all of my attention and plenty of affection. This ﬂirtation was going on even before she married into the family. I had hoped that after ﬁve years and two kids it would end, but it hasn’t subsided in the least. I admit I am slightly jealous, but am I completely off base thinking there is something wrong with this? -- Green-Eyed Dear Green-Eyed: There are a lot of things wrong with this. We don’t care how tired your husband is, surely he could work up some interest in sex in two years. The fact that he hasn’t is worrisome and, combined with the attention he receives from another woman, puts your relationship at risk. We don’t know why James’ brother turns a blind eye to his wife’s ﬂirtations, but that is his problem. Yours is to ﬁnd a way to reconnect intimately with your husband. Talk to a
counselor, get some books from the library, watch some videos or take a long vacation, but please do something before it’s too late. Dear Annie: Our grandchild is 4 years old. He pushes and slaps his father while laughing and yelling. His dad retaliates, often rolling on the ﬂoor with him, all in fun. This “fun” is getting more violent, and we worry that the child will grow up shoving and hitting and having a problematic life. His father laughs at our concerns. What do you think? -- Worried in West Hills Dear Worried: A certain amount of roughhousing is OK if neither the child nor the parent is getting hurt, feels anxious or becomes over-stimulated. The father should be aware, however, that the boy is not capable of controlling his enthusiasm and things can get out of hand. We recommend that Mom discuss it with her pediatrician. Dear Annie: “Happy Senior” said she avoids the person who is “so hard of hearing that conversation is tiresome.” My mother was socially active and popular in her small circle. She joined the Scrabble club and started tap dancing classes, pursuits that she had enjoyed in the past. But before new friendships could take root, she began to experience hearing problems that became so severe that she was unable to readily interact with people in group situations and withdrew from her outside activities. Despite the latest hearing aid technology, she is still functionally hard of hearing. Certain considerations can lead to less tiresome encounters: Face the person squarely and engage in one-on-one conversation. A quiet place is likely to be more conducive to conversation. Anyone making the effort to engage my mother in such conversation will ﬁnd an intelligent, caring and funloving human being. -- C.

It appears the Red Sox did not share in that knowledge. As the Yankees and the Rays moved into the bottom of the seventh inning of the nightcap, the giant video screen in center field flashed the score in Boston, to the delight of the 45,586 fans at Yankee Stadium. In the last week, Red Sox fans have had a far different outlook toward the Yankees, who are in the unusual position of keeping Boston’s playoff hopes alive. The Red Sox have lost 16 out of 21 games, but they picked up a half-game in the wild-card standings over the Rays and now lead Tampa Bay and the Los Angeles Angels by two and a half games. In the last three games, the Yankees have done for Boston what Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford — their marquee off-season acquisitions — could not do in the four-game series at Fenway Park last week, when the Rays won three out of four. The Yankees clobbered the Rays when it counted. In the nightcap, Jorge Posada, who has been marginalized this season while his longtime teammates Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter have been celebrated for reaching milestones, got his moment of glory. Pinch-hitting with the bases loaded and two out in the eighth, Posada lashed a two-run single to break a 2-2 tie while the fans roared their approval. “There were times I sat him for a little bit, and I told you I still believe he’s a guy that’s going to help us,” Girardi said. “And that’s exactly what he’s done.” After Rafael Soriano closed out the victory in the ninth, the Yankees poured out of the dugout and celebrated near the mound with hugs, high-fives and commemorative T-shirts. Once they were in the clubhouse, the plastic curtains came down over their lockers and the Champagne came out. –––––––––––––––– NEWS ––––––––––––––––
‘With every step of the process it’s a reminder of what’s happened’ SHOOTINGS from page one
grandmother during the arraignment, said that she has known Hayden for about 10 years. She described how her twin sister and Hayden would often be fine around one another but were also known to fight. Sandora had twice filed for protective orders against Hayden but neither were ever issued because she didn't pursue them, according to published reports. "With every step of the process it's a reminder of what's happened and it doesn't get easier," said Sara Trafton, a family friend who also attended the court hearing that she described as bringing "a mix of emotions." Hayden was being held at the Cumberland County Jail without bail Thursday. The judge set a Jan. 3 deadline for prosecutors and the defense to file any motions. During the arraignment, the judge asked whether Hayden was taking any prescription medication and his attorney, John Ney, responded that he was not taking any drugs. After the alleged shooting, Hayden led police on a high-speed chase for about 20 minutes before he crashed the vehicle and was transported to the Maine Medical Center for back injuries. "I don't know what he's thinking," said Estes after the arraignment, referring to his comments to her family. "He always has to have the last word."
