News of Brunswick, Topsham, Bath and Harpswell

School chief, state: Not up to SAD 75 to promote opposition By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — On Monday, the Board of Selectmen asked School Administrative District 75 to present alternative views about the proposed closing of West Harpswell School. But in an interview Wednesday, SAD 75 Superintendent Mi-

chael Wilhelm said the School Board is not required to publicize any views other than its own. The School Board has voted twice to close the school, but some Harpswell residents believe strongly it should stay open. The board was scheduled

to have a discussion Thursday night about whether to distribute a four-page flier to Harpswell residents that explains the decision to shut down West Harpswell School. The fliers would be distributed in anticipation of a town referendum on Feb. 1.

Harpswell selectmen, including Chairman James Henderson, object to the SAD 75 literature because Harpswell residents pay taxes to support the school district. Therefore, Henderson said, SAD 75 has a responsibility to represent the opinion of Harpswell residents who want

to keep the school open. “I would think it’s appropriate for any government to ensure that both sides of the issue are identified,” he said. He asserted that SAD 75’s information distribution process See page 17

Filmmaker doing extraordinary work with documentaries By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Like many film aficionados, Louise Rosen has lined the walls of her home office with movie posters. But she has a more personal relationship with the films than the average viewer – her name appears in print along the bottom of many of the posters. Rosen is a producer, distributor and connoisseur of independent, documentary films. She works with filmmakers to find buyers and production companies for their films, providing her own input about what works and what doesn’t along the way. Her clients range from first-time filmmakers to Academy Award nominees. For 15 years she has headed her own film distribution company, which has been based in Brunswick since 2005. Rosen said that while the country’s film hot spots are unequivocally New York and Los Angeles, “increasingly people are making the decision not to necessarily be based in the big metropolitan areas that were once thought to be sort of essential for the media world.” “My feeling was, at this point in my business and my career what I needed was an airport and high-speed inter-

By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — Voters next month may be asked to approve a lawsuit settlement that will allow construction of a cellular communications tower the town has been trying to block. The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Jan. 6 to send three potential warrant items to a public hearing on Thursday, Jan. 20. After hearing input the board will decide whether to place those items on the Feb. 16 special Town Meeting warrant. Under the terms of the lawsuit settlement, the town would allow Mariner Tower to install a “monopine” structure – a cell tower camouflaged as a pine tree – at 14 Oak St. The tower would be subject to the specifications and conditions called for in the latest version of Mariner’s application to the Planning Board. Mariner would have to agree

Vietnam vet recounts his psychological journey By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — When Morris Lavallee talks about Peter Davies, a key character in “Cracks in the Wall,” the author is in many ways reflecting on himself. Lavallee’s historical novel is based on his own experiences in the military during the Vietnam War. “It’s a psychological journey,” La-

vallee said. “... It’s really about the causes and effect of post traumatic stress.” Lavallee said his time in Vietnam caused him to suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. “Cracks in the Wall” chronicles two key characters: Davies and psychiatrist Dr. Prescott Brown, who are drawn together by fate years after the

war’s end, when Peter is brought to a Morris Lavallee Veterans Administration hospital after of Topsham is the being found standing catatonically at author of “Cracks in the Wall,” a the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in novel based on his Washington, D.C. experience in the “Sociologically, they’re polar oppoVietnam War. sites.

Composition of a lifetime PSO helps Freeport composer celebrate 75 years

Composer Elliott Schwartz with his newest composition, “Diamond Jubilee,” which will be premiered by the Portland Symphony Orchestra on Jan. 25. The work is a celebration of Schwartz’s 75th birthday and examines his life and historical events in three movements, each representing 25 years.

Comment on this story at:

By Emily Parkhurst PORTLAND — Composer Elliott Schwartz is turning 75 next week and he’s inviting the Portland Symphony Orchestra and 1,900 of his closest friends to help him celebrate. Schwartz’s composition, “Diamond Jubilee,” was recently commissioned by the PSO and will have its world premiere at the symphony’s Jan. 25 concert at Merrill Auditorium. Schwartz, who lives in Freeport, said he didn’t set out to write a birthday piece, but that was how it came together. “I started out with fragments of my own early music,” Schwartz said. “There’s a four-note motto from the first piece I wrote that I heard performed by an orchestra. That is developed and becomes part of the rest of the piece.” Schwartz, who taught music and composition for years at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, said “Diamond Jubilee” is divided into three movements, each representing 25 years of his life and the historical events that occurred during those years. Each movement begins with a solo performed by one of the PSO’s long-

standing members: clarinetist Thomas Parchman, violist Laurie Kennedy and horn player John Boden. During the performance, Schwartz said iconic images and words representing each of the 25-year time periods will be projected onto a screen above the stage. “It’s like a slide-show,” Schwartz said. He selected photos as iconic as an atomic bomb mushroom cloud, and photos of old cars and telephones, and a few photos of himself as a baby and on his wedding day. He even included a photo from the 1939 World’s Fair in New York City, which he attended as a young boy. “My first memory is of the World’s Fair. It was the world of the future,” he said with a chuckle. Schwartz is known as an adventurous composer. In a previous composition for the PSO, he called for a piano and pianist to set up in the front of the orchestra, but the pianist never actually played the instrument. “Musicians in the orchestra would get

up and walk up to the front of the stage and play into the body of the piano,” he said. Schwartz said he has always enjoyed the theatrical aspects of music and in this new work, the PSO musicians will be asked to do a few surprising things, including humming chords and chanting numbers in different languages. While Schwartz has been a prolific and influential classical composer, he started out majoring in pre-med in college. Even though he had been composing since he was 9 years old, his father pushed him to become a doctor. “My father and both his brothers were doctors,” Schwartz said. “There was a lot of pressure there.” But he still managed to compose and continue playing piano while enrolled in chemistry and biology classes. After he graduated, he went immediately to graduate school to study composition. Despite the strong influence of atonal

serial composers Anton Webern and Alban Berg on the prevailing compositional style, Schwartz continued to write tonal music, adopting only a few aspects of atonal serialism and chance music. He became fascinated with French and English early 20th century composers, who pushed tonality in a different way than their German counterparts. In the 1970s he experimented with electronic music, but lost interest when electronic music moved from tapes to computers. “I liked doing things with my hands, like splicing the tapes,” Schwartz said. “I need something tactile.” Plus, he said, computers just didn’t make as interesting sounds as instruments. So he moved back to exploring ways to compose based on themes from others’ works or from his life. He became inspired recently by a group of students continued page 4

Brunswick principal wins Catholic education award By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — When Principal Andree Benoit Tostevin is having a stressful day at school, she knows exactly what to do. She heads to the kindergarten classrooms at St. John’s Catholic School, she said, to visit with “our little guys, the 4-year-olds.” “They just bring it all back, they put it in perspective” Tostevin said. “It’s just about kids and learning and great teachers.” It’s hard not to be wowed by Tostevin’s obvious love for her job. Phrases like “kids are amazing” and “every day something wonderful happens” just bubble up and out of her. And now, after 33 years as a principal, her compassion and commitment to education have landed her the Distinguished Principal Award from the National Catholic Education Association for New England. Tostevin is modest when discussing the award. “I’m very humbled by it,” she said. She said she believes the award belongs to St. John’s, which she describes as “a great little school.” “(The award) is about the school as a community,” Tostevin said, “and I happen to be the leader of this community.” Before coming to St. John’s six years ago, Tostevin served as principal of St. Joseph School in Lewiston. Before that she was a principal in Bath, where she was named a distinguished educator by Get a new look for the New Year!

the Maine State Department of Education. While ultimately feeling more at home in a Catholic school, Tostevin said she is grateful to have worked in public schools for the opportunity to experience different styles of education. “I haven’t spent my whole life working in Catholic schools, and that’s a blessing,” she said. Tostevin spent many years as a teacher before making the jump to administra-

tion. While she loved teaching, she said she prefers her role now because it offers more variety. “I have to have change every day, something has to be new. That’s how I thrive. The classroom is wonderful, but think of how many age groups I work with now?” she said. Tostevin said she embraces all aspects of her job, even the parts that others might find daunting, like budgeting. She said she has enjoyed learning “how to work with a little bit of money and make that money go a little longer and further. ... It’s just fun, it’s fun for me.” She also loves working with students who misbehave. “Very few kids are really difficult,” she said. “Kids need to know that they have control over what they do,” Tostevin said. “And when the light bulb goes on and you see a change in them, that’s really very special.” While it’s possible to hear the smile in Tostevin’s voice when she talks about how much she loves her students, she turns serious when talking about her duties as an educator. “It’s an awesome responsibility people who work in schools with kids have,” she said, “and I take that very seriously.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or

Brunswick councilors consider ‘vision’ of downtown master plan By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Town councilors expressed their initial reactions to the newly minted Downtown and Pleasant Street Master Plan at Monday’s Town Council workshop. Councilor Margo Knight, who chaired the committee that drafted the plan, encouraged councilors to “focus on the vision, and how we can get there,” rather than getting caught up on the details. That vision includes making Maine and Pleasant Streets safer for pedestrians and drivers, increasing the livability of downtown residential neighborhoods, marketing the town’s assets to visitors and attracting new businesses to the town. Many councilors voiced their support for both the plan and the idea of focusing

on the big picture. “I think that Brunswick has got to have a plan like this,” Councilor Ben Tucker said. “If you don’t have a plan then how are we going to bring out the best in the town and make people aware of what we have and improve it?” Still, some councilors got caught up in some of the plan’s detailed recommendations. Councilor John Perreault objected to a proposal to pave downtown sidewalks with “concrete pavers,” or simulated brick, instead of asphalt, arguing that it is significantly more expensive. And Tucker wondered, “how is a parking garage near Fort Andross better than any other place?”

Other councilors worried that the plan makes unnecessary demands of small business owners, whose views are not necessarily represented by councilors. Chairwoman Joanne King expressed concern that “some of the recommendations seem to be very personal, like we’re going to tell these owners they need to fix their yard or driveway. How do you do that? Some of these people that are affected might read this document and be alarmed.” Knight responded that nothing would be forced on anyone, and that each recommendation would be carefully scrutinized and voted on by the council before being implemented. In addition, she suggested inviting small business owners to sit in as ad-hoc members of committees.

Comment on this story at:

Toward the end of the workshop, Jim Trusiani, the vice chairman of the Topsham Board of Selectmen who was sitting in on the meeting, reminded the Brunswick councilors of the regional implications of their decisions. “It’s not just the town of Brunswick’s vision, it’s a regional vision,” he said. He cautioned councilors against spending time arguing over recommendations that he believed are unlikely to come to fruition, like the construction of a parking garage next to Fort Andross. “Make sure that all your visions at the end of the day can be reached, in terms of regulatory requirements,” he said.

They’re so eager, very willing to try things,” he said. “And their knowledge of electronics far surpasses mine.” He is, however, quite active on the social networking website Facebook, which he used as the inspiration for a recent work, “The Facebook Chronicles.” When asked if he was thinking about retiring from composing, he shook his head. “I don’t think any composer ever retires,” he said. “It used to be, you retired when you couldn’t hold a pencil anymore.

About 130 jobs to be cut by Bath Iron Works By Alex Lear BATH — Bath Iron Works announced Jan. 7 that it would lay off about 130 employees as of Jan. 21. The employees include salaried and unionized workers, according to a statement issued by BIW President Jeff Geiger, who blamed the reductions on a decline in demand for design work. “We have been fortunate over the last several years to have had the responsibility to develop the DDG 1000,” Geiger said, referring to the Zumwalt-class destroyer built for the U.S. Navy. “A lead ship design project such as this occurs very infrequently and generates a demand for technical resources far above normal levels. We’re now beyond the peak of the DDG 1000 design effort and the high demand for these resources is declining.” He said the shipyard anticipated the decline and created additional design and engineering opportunities that reduced the number of jobs eliminated.

If you want competitive insurance quotes

Geiger noted that workforce changes are common in shipbuilding, pointing out that in June 2009 he announced a production drop and ensuing layoffs as BIW transitioned from the DDG 51 to DDG 1000. “At the same time, we were hiring engineers and designers to meet our increasing DDG 1000 design needs,” Geiger said. “That situation is now reversed as the ship has transitioned into full production. Over the past year, we have increased our production staff by over 700 people.”

The agony of the feet If the stock market had the same rate of growth as my children’s feet, we’d really be living large. Today I had the pleasure of, once again, making the annual pilgrimage to the ski shop; to grimace as the ski shop boys (can they really No Sugar be called men when they say things like “dude” and “that’s a really nice set-up you’ve got there”) placed the foot-measuring devices lovingly under each of my sons’ feet. I say lovingly because, indeed, the ski shop owner must get a toasty feeling in his heart every time I show up at his doorstep. Every centimeter those feet grow equals another hour on a Caribbean vacation. As Sandi Amorello ski shop boy would say: “Sweet!” Generally, when we go through this ritual, I hold my breath and feign blindness. Today, I got off easy. Amazingly, the first child’s ski boots (the one with the “really nice set-up” going on), still fit him from the previous season. Even though they were indeed purchased last year in a size that was meant to last him through two seasons, one is still generally shocked when this impossible dream comes true. It’s like winning the lottery. Or a free turkey at Thanksgiving.


Child No. 2, Charles, has thus far in his young life grown at the rate of a small cactus. Just enough each year for the pediatrician to give him the green light, while secretly wondering whether I am feeding him on a consistent basis. Yet, in spite of this non-spectacular rate of physical maturing, his feet always seem to grow at a rate more proportionate to his hair. So, yes, this year, (even though last year’s snowboarding boots were meant to last two seasons), we are once again forced into – drum roll please – the next size. This not only means the next size boots, but the next size bindings. Ka-ching. I can hear the coins draining out of my piggy bank as I type. I’ve considered the ancient Chinese method of foot bondage, or perhaps forcing my offspring to spend their free hours sporting those torturous prima ballerina shoes and walking around “en pointe,” (clearly, dancing on one’s toes must hinder foot growth), but I just haven’t had it in me to be quite that cruel. Besides, someone would report me to the authorities. Most PTA mothers are just waiting to find something that will force the good people at DHHS to lock me up and throw away the key. Foot bondage might do it. Having to outfit growing children with athletic footwear and apparel is one of the banes of parenthood. Luckily for me, my eldest child, Ophelia, has now completed her growth cycle. Unless she begins eating copious quantities of McDonald’s food in the near future, I don’t see her getting much larger than her current proportions. And her feet stopped growing years ago.

(An event so heartwarming, it brought tears to my eyes.) With the exception of skiing and snowboarding, if a sport requires the purchase of additional footwear, I say, “Just say no!” Basketball sneakers for $95? No. Track shoes with inflatable soles for $140? No. It’s not that I am completely against organized sports. But, unless my child is head over heels in love with something like baseball, football or hockey – forget it. It’s not happening. I have seen the deal go down too many times. The little minxes want to play the sport to buy the rockin’ sneakers. Before the forms have even been filled out, before the ink is even dry on the liability waiver, they’re talking about the cool sporting footwear they’ll be requiring. Well. Forget that one. What happened to Converse All-Stars? What happened to multi-purpose footwear? My son Harold is not going to be the next Olympic sprinter. I know this, because I have trouble even getting him to take in the mail. I am certainly not spending money on running shoes that could be used to feed a family of four for a week. If the shoe fits, wear it. And send a wish to the Universe that it lasts for more than one sporting season.

Poets: Resolve, not rage, after slight by LePage By Joshua Bodwell I admit I was quite surprised when Gov. Paul LePage’s camp announced that no poetry would be read at his inauguration. As the executive director of the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance – a 35-year-old nonprofit devoted to enriching the cultural life of Maine by supporting the literary arts – I paused when I heard this. Then I looked in the mirror and I asked myself: Have I been doing my job?

Let me be unequivocally clear: I don’t agree with the decision to banish poetry from the inauguration. But perhaps we – and I mean the greater “we,” those of us who love poetry and literature – haven’t been loud enough promoters as of late. In this age of up-to-the-minute, 24/7, multi-channel coverage of every global news story imaginable, I can perhaps understand why poetry has faded into the background of American political priorities. And so, I look forward to helping the LePage administration embrace not only Maine’s rich literary legacy, but also its proud contemporary writers and poets. So let me begin with a brief history lesson. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, born in Portland in 1807, became one of the most famous writers in America when “Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie” was published in 1847. When “Paul Revere’s Ride” came out in 1860,

that Boston silversmith, rebel, and American hero had been largely forgotten; today, Revere’s patriotism is ingrained in our nation’s very sense of self. Longfellow. Poet. History-maker. Maine boy. Then there’s Edwin Arlington Robinson, born in Head Tide in Lincoln County, who won three Pulitzer prizes in poetry. Rockland native Edna St. Vincent Millay was the third woman to ever win the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. When Louise Bogan became the United States poet laureate in 1945, I’m sure they were celebrating in her hometown of Livermore Falls. But Maine’s poetic prowess is not only historical, it is alive and thriving. One need look no further than our current Maine poet laureate, Betsy Sholl, and her engaging, accessible, vitally important work. Or the work of continued next page

Dodge doesn’t deserve newspaper’s attention I was surprised that tea party activist Andrew Ian Dodge merited a major article in The Forecaster. What does he have to offer the state of Maine besides sassy quotes and a belligerent manner? Dodge’s stance as a libertarian is facilitated, it seems, by significant financial and housing support from his family. Put bluntly, it doesn’t seem he has to work, unlike the vast majority of Mainers. Perhaps I should not be surprised as media darling Christine O’ Donnell, Delaware’s senatorial candidate, possessed similar “credentials” – a sassy attitude and no real job. In fact, O’ Donnell made media creation Sarah Palin look like Ralph Waldo Emerson. Call me old-fashioned, but I believe that candidates for national office should possess real substance, real experience and real solution to real problems – not just glib quotes for a media all too eager to feed an unthinking populace. David Treadwell Brunswick

Forum from previous page Adrian Blevins, Annie Finch, Richard Foerster, Stuart Kestenbaum, Wesley McNair, Ira Sadoff, Lee Sharkey, Jeffrey Thomson, and countless others. But I could go on all day naming Maine’s incredibly talented poets. You know who they are – as Betsy Sholl recently reminded me, everybody reads Maine’s poetry: nurses, farmers, teachers, mechanics, police officers, fisherman, and recent immigrants. It has always been an inclusive art, not an exclusive one. I am not going to spend even a moment stewing over or complaining about the unfortunate decision to exclude poetry from this gubernatorial inauguration, other than to mention that there is a reason why poetry has been with us since the dawn of civilization, and why we still read and recite the poetry of Homer to this day – while hardly anyone knows who governed Greece during his lifetime. Poetry endures. Instead of stewing, I’m going to spend every moment of my time spreading the word and celebrating the power of Maine’s writers and great works of literature. I hope you’ll join me. Joshua Bodwell is executive director of the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance.

Caught in the middle of media wars Last year at this time, FairPoint Communications, our bankrupt phone company, was threatening to disconnect 20,000 Great Works Internet customers (The Universal Notebook, Jan. 18, 2010) after jacking up its line rate for unused fiberoptic cable from $50 a mile to $1,100 a mile and then claiming GWI owed it $3 million. This year, FairPoint The Universal is only threatening to disconnect 1,700 GWI customers, those unfortunate few like myself who receive GWI broadband Internet service over a FairPoint phone line. Last year, FairPoint blinked. This year, given the small number of consumers involved, I wouldn’t be surprised if FairPoint makes good on its threat to cut off Edgar Allen Beem GWI once the contract between the two companies expires on Feb. 28. On Dec. 29, I received an e-mail from GWI informing me that “We have recently been notified that your telephone provider is no longer willing to share their lines. This will likely cause you to lose access to your GWI Broadband Internet service.” I called GWI to ask whether the warring telecom companies might work out their differences as they did last year. A GWI rep told me “not a chance.” I then called FairPoint with the same question. I was told the companies “may decide to extend the contract, but no decision has been made.” In the meantime, I’m told that I should make new arrangements to preserve my Internet access. GWI would like me to make it both my telephone company and my Internet provider. FairPoint doesn’t seem to give a damn what I do. If I am forced to choose between GWI and FairPoint, I’ll probably choose Time Warner. I like having a Maine-based Internet provider, but I’m sick and tired of being a pawn in the games telecoms play. Time Warner, of course, is currently in a media war of its own, another in which customers


are caught in the cross-hairs. Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns local CBS affiliate WGMETV, has been trying to get Time Warner Cable to pay it a dime for every subscriber in order to carry Channel 13. Historically, broadcast stations have provided their programming free of charge because cable viewers enable them to increase their viewership and therefore charge more for their advertising. But ad revenues are falling for old media, so Sinclair would like to recover some of the lost revenue by charging more for its signal. Last week, the Time Warner-Sinclair standoff threatened to deny local viewers access to the New England Patriots game, but Time Warner managed to disarm Sinclair by arranging to get the CBS network feed. Suddenly, Sinclair was only holding WGME news anchor Kim Block for ransom, not Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Sinclair wisely extended the deadline for disconnecting Time Warner customers from Jan. 1 to Jan. 14. My guess is that Sinclair will cave in when it realizes that threatening to pull the local news is not as powerful a bargaining chip as threatening to pull the Pats and “How I Met Your Mother.” You know what would be nice though? If Sinclair just sold WGME and got out of town. Sinclair is a conservative media giant that seems to cause problems wherever it goes. Most of the stations it owns around the country are Fox network affiliates. Only two are CBS affiliates. I’ve felt sorry for the folks at WGME ever since Sinclair acquired them. But you know who I feel more sorry for? You and me, the paying customers caught in the middle of these needless media wars. OK FairPoint, GWI, Time Warner and Sinclair, so you have contract disputes. Grow up, get your acts together and settle them privately. Stop fighting your money-grubbing battles on the backs of your customers. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Achieve your New Year’s resolution: Make it a ‘must’ (ARA) - A fresh cycle starts fresh every year on Jan. 1. We promise ourselves we’ll start eating better, work out, save more money, or otherwise improve upon the way we live our lives. However, statistics show that by mid-January, most people don’t follow through on their resolutions and give up. This happens often, but it’s not always easy to understand why. Peak performance coach and human behavior expert Tony Robbins says that when someone isn’t achieving their goal, it’s often because they haven’t made it a “must.” “People give up on achieving their goals because they are ‘shoulds’ and not ‘musts,’” says Robbins. “But when something becomes an absolute must for you, when you cut off any other possibility in


your mind, then you will do whatever it takes to achieve your goal.” Too often, people set unrealistic ways to reach their goals, feel disappointed when they have a setback and give up too soon. If you need to lose 50 pounds but haven’t

• Raise your standards. To find real personal fulfillment, you must continue to grow by challenging yourself and raising the standards by which you live your life. “Most people fail in life because they major in minor things,” says Robbins. Start by painting a mental picture: Who do you want to become as a person? Then, ask yourself what standards you would need to set to be that person – what would you have to believe or do; how would you have to dress, talk or walk? • Drop the story and tell yourself the truth. Honest assessments can be hard to make, but it’s an essential step to lasting change. Write down, in detail, what your life is like right now in the area you want to change. Be specific. For example: “I can’t fit into any of my clothes and keep buying bigger sizes pretending I am not getting heavier.” • Develop a vision that excites you and the habits you need to make it real. “Knowing what you want is important, but you need to know why you want it and to have a clear vision - that is what will keep pulling you toward your goal,” says Robbins. Instead of setting a goal to lose 10 pounds, make it more compelling by concentrating on the effects of losing weight, like transforming your body or feeling younger and stronger. Write it down, using language that excites you and the habits you will need to achieve your goal – again, be honest, specific and realistic. • Find role models. Whether it’s friends, acquaintances or someone in the public eye, find role models who inspire you and are achieving the results you want. Often, by watching and following what they do, you’ll get the same results. This can be an intimidating step, but it can make a real difference - reach out to those people and tell them what you admire. Ask them about the steps they took to achieve success - this can provide you with a clearer idea of how to reach your goal. Waiting for the calendar to turn to begin on your goals shouldn’t be part of your plan, get a head start now. If you’re starting out with questions, don’t worry – you’re not alone.

Action heats up as winter season hits midway point As we near the midway point of the winter sports season, local athletes in all sports continue to impress. Here’s a look at where things stand.

Boys’ basketball If the playoffs started today, Mt. Ararat would be the only local boys’ basketball team to qualify. The Eagles entered the week 5-3 and seventh in the Eastern Class A Heal Points standings after wins over visiting Messalonskee (39-26) and host Lewiston (53-47, in OT). Against the Blue Devils, Josh Walker had 20 points as Mt. Ararat rallied to triumph. “This was an incredible basketball game,” said coach Aaron Watson. “We used great defense in overtime, limiting the Blue Devils to just one shot per possession and we were able to move the ball around to get open looks.” The Eagles hosted reigning regional champion Edward Little Tuesday, welcome Morse Friday and go to Brunswick Monday. Brunswick improved to 4-3 with wins last week over host Lawrence (52-49) and Erskine (58-36), then dropped a 64-63 heartbreaker at home to Edward Little Monday to fall to 4-4. The Dragons (12th in Eastern A) hosted Cony Tuesday, visit Oxford Hills Friday and welcome Mt. Ararat Monday. Morse is 0-9 after losses at Bangor (60-21) and Edward Little (71-31) last week. The Shipbuilders (15th in the region) play at Mt. Ararat Friday and welcome Oxford Hills Tuesday. In Western D, Hyde lost last week at A. R. Gould (43-26) and Valley (61-27), then got in the win column Monday at Hebron (45-29) to improve to 1-3. After hosting Gould Academy Wednesday, the Phoenix (13th in the Heals) are idle until next Wednesday when they go to North Yarmouth Academy.

Girls’ basketball On the girls’ side, Morse remains the top team in Eastern A at 9-0 after downing visiting Bangor (52-36) and Edward Little (59-47). The Shipbuilders return to action Friday at home versus Mt. Ararat and visit Oxford Hills Tuesday. Mt. Ararat is 4-4 and sixth after beating host Messalonskee (45-27) and visiting Lewiston (46-21) last week. The Eagles visited Edward Little Tuesday, go to Morse Friday and host Brunswick Monday. The Dragons downed visiting Erskine, 66-40, Friday, but lost

In Western D, Hyde 1-3 after losses last week to visiting Old Orchard Beach (51-33) and host Valley (42-20). The Phoenix (12th in the region) hosted Hebron Wednesday and welcome Islesboro Friday and NYA Wednesday of next week.

Hockey On the ice, Brunswick and Mt. Ararat’s boys’ teams are fighting for a playoff spot. The Dragons are on a threegame winning streak after downing host Skowhegan (5-1) and after visiting Cony (4-3, in OT). Brunswick (4-5 and eighth in Eastern A) was at Lewiston Wednesday and visits Gardiner Saturday. The Eagles are 10th with a 2-4-1 record after sandwiching losses to host Skowhegan (52) and Gray-New Gloucester/ Poland (3-2) around a home victory over Cony (1-0). Mt. Ararat hosts Windham Saturday and Skowhegan Monday.

On the girls’ side, Brunswick is 5-6-1 after recent wins over host Biddeford (5-1) and visiting Portland (6-3). The Dragons (fourth in the East Region) hosted Lewiston Thursday and visit Yarmouth Saturday.

Track Brunswick’s girls’ indoor track team was first and the boys second at a seven-team meet Friday. Mt. Ararat’s girls beat five other teams and the boys placed runner-up. The teams compete against each other, as well as Belfast, Cony, Gardiner, Lewiston and Mt. View Friday.

Swimming In the pool, Brunswick’s girls tied host Belfast last weekend, 50-50. The boys lost, 59-41. After swimming at Cony Tuesday, the Dragons go to Gardiner Friday. Morse split with visiting Waterville, as the girls rolled, 122-45, and the boys fell, 89-78. The Shipbuilders go to Camden Friday. Mt. Ararat swam against St. Dom’s and Lewiston its last time out. The boys beat the Blue Devils (88-78) and the Saints (107-40). The girls downed

Despite the experiences he has endured, Lavallee noted that he “would never want anyone to assume that this is a bitch-fest for me, because it’s not. It’s about an observation.” The conversations in his book stem from those he had with other veterans in the smoking room at the VA hospital. “I just listened,” he said. “I listened and knew that there was something I needed to say, and I wasn’t sure what it was.” Now he has said it. Lavallee said he is humbled by the positive response to the book so far. He is working on two more, one of which is a sequel to “Cracks in the Wall” and covers the journey of Brown, who has been inspired by Davies. “Cracks in the Wall” will soon be available at Borders in Brunswick. Lavallee plans to go on a book-reading tour next month at libraries, book stores and literary groups. People can also find the book on Facebook.

net, and both of them are here,” she said about the decision to move to Brunwick from Boston. Brunswick also seemed like a great place to raise her son, who she adopted from Kazakhstan in 2003. Besides, as a 30-year veteran of the film industry, Rosen said she doesn’t have to go out and search for clients – they come to her. The name recognition allows her to be picky about which films she decides to produce and distribute. She prefers documentary films that are “mission-driven” and deal with social justice, inequality, environmental and international issues. “Documentaries were what really mattered to me,” she said of her decision to exclusively distribute and produce independent non-fiction films. “As sources of news and info become increasingly consolidated, to a great extent, a lot of the other views that are available to people about the world we live in come from independent film makers. And I thought that was something to support and keep vibrant,” she added.

Looking through some of Rosen’s recent film projects, it’s clear that she takes her mission seriously. Last fall she produced and/or distributed films about topics ranging from the plight of Tibetan nomads to a promise made by the African-American painter Beverly McIver to take care of her mentally disabled sister. When deciding which films to take on, she said she tries to balance being led by her heart and her head. “There are things that touch me that I feel very moved by, and you know what? It’s my own business so I can decide to be led by my heart,” she said. “But fortunately, it’s often the case that those two merge.” Rosen’s decision process seems to work. She has been involved with films that have received Academy Award nominations and have appeared in festivals around the world. And recently, she was awarded an Imaginnaire Award by Imagine Magazine, which covers film, television and new media production in the northeast. Imaginnaires are “creative, innovated, spirited problem solvers,” said Imagine Magazine Publisher Carol Patton. Patton said Rosen is one of the few “super-combination executive producer/ distributors” in the northeast. “She is doing extraordinary work that very few others in our region are doing,” Patton said. Rosen traveled to Boston on Tuesday to accept her trophy. And this time the award is just for her, not a film she helped to create. Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or

week’s Comprehensive Strategic Planning Committee meeting.

“The board has decided they would like to close the school, and they’re providing information why. Of course it’s one-sided. It’s the board’s publication.”

He said the information is “an advocacy document. I can think of only one of their claims that would stand up to positive scrutiny.”

A spokesman for the Maine Department of Education confirmed Wilhelm’s position on distribution of alternative perspectives.

David Connerty-Marin, DOE director So far, selectmen have not received of communications, said there is no law a reply from Wilhelm regarding their that says a school administrative district request. But on Wednesday, he was must present both sides of an issue.

from page 1 that the tower would never be extended above 75 feet, and the company would reimburse Topsham for $10,000 in attorney fees. Planning Director Rich Roedner said the fees are currently about $14,000. Town Meeting voters may also see a supplemental warrant item that will be discussed if residents reject the settlement. They would be asked to raise and appropriate up to $150,000 from the town’s fund balance or through borrowing for legal fees.

The Planning Board in June denied Mariner Tower’s application to build a 75-foot monopole tower at 14 Oak St., in Topsham’s Heights neighborhood. The company needed conditional approval for the tower before going through site plan and transmission tower reviews. Mariner and T-Mobile, which would have been a carrier on the tower, sued the town in July in federal court to obtain the permits the Planning Board denied. The U.S. District Court lawsuit seeks an injunction and a conditional use permit, along with every other permit required for the tower to be built and operated. T-Mobile withdrew from the case in September. Topsham residents voted 2,358 to 1,933 two months later to ban new cell towers in the town’s Urban Residential Zone. The ban is retroactive to April 1, 2010. The Board of Selectmen also sent items governing building code amendments and allowable locations for addiction treatment facilities to the Jan. 20 public hear-
