Harpswell admiral promotes cause of wounded warriors By Alex Lear BATH — As a four-star admiral, Gregory Johnson has a resume with impressive depth and many tales to tell from a much-accomplished career. But one thing he particularly likes to discuss is the plight of the wounded warrior. When he serves with his wife, Joy, as grand marshal of the Bath Heritage Days parade on Monday, July 4, he will be accompanied by veterans who have benefited from the Warrior Legacy Foundation’s Wounded Heroes Program of Maine. Johnson is also affiliated with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, an organization that assists the physical and emotional rehabilitation of active-duty military personnel and disabled veterans through fly-fishing and fly-tying education and outings. Johnson’s work combines two of his passions: fly fishing and shared sacrifice. “I just don’t think that our nation’s very good at (shared sacrifice) any more, and I don’t think our political

leadership asks nearly enough of the American people,” Johnson said. “We can send these kids off to do our nation’s work and fight our wars, and the rest of us are asked to keep shopping and keep the economy going. But none of us can appreciate the ... sacrifice these kids make, (and) their families make,” he said, as well as the physical, mental and spiritual challenges they will face the rest of their lives. Johnson pointed to drug abuse, domestic violence and homelessness as some of those maladies “we just sort of try to put that under the carpet.” He said he hopes to help the veterans affiliated with Project Healing Waters and to raise money for its programs. “To (help) them get balance in their life, get perspective in their life, it’s just a wonderful program,” he said. “...

By Alex Lear BATH — An organization that has long offered help to those in need now needs some help of its own. The Clothing Exchange, an arm of the Bath Area Food Bank, has been hosted for no charge at the Corliss Street Baptist Church since 1988, according to Food Bank Chairman Harold Glover. The exchange recently ceased operations until a new home can be found. In the meantime, its inventory remains at the Corliss Street church. “I really would like to ... sustain this ministry, because there are a lot of people in our area who get clothes from us because they can’t get them anywhere else,” Glover said last week. “They would be cold without our help.” The exchange is seeking a safe, clean, accessible place, within proximity to downtown, with space to accommodate a sorting room, a client check-in room and a room for the display and distribution of clothing for women, men and children. A laundry room would be helpful, too.

Bath Heritage Days is July 1-4.

Access denied

Public landing conflict pits neighbor against harvesters By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — Margaret McMahon Hickey purchased her Hildreth Road home in 2001 as a quiet place to retire and write. She didn’t expect to become embroiled in a lingering dispute over access to one of Harpswell’s prime public landings. The Hildreth Road town landing is one of the only places along Harpswell Sound where shellfish harvesters, kayakers, lobstermen and other boaters

can access the water. David Wilson, a Harpswell fisherman and Marine Resource Committee member, said he uses the landing frequently, sometimes twice a day, when digging for soft-shell clams. “In the area, that’s the only one,” he said. But Gravel Pit Road, which leads to the landing on a fanshaped, gravel beach, is narrow and has space for only one vehicle to park. Because

of this, many harvesters park their trucks and boat trailers on Hickey’s part of the beach. “They were parking their trucks all over the property, which I didn’t appreciate,” she said. Hickey said she doesn’t mind if fishermen launch their boats on the town’s part of the landing, which after all, is public property. But she wants them to See page 21

Bath keel laying marks 1st step in replica of historic ship By Alex Lear BATH — The laying of a keel during Heritage Days this weekend may make some people want to party like it’s 1607. It’s been about 400 years since the pinnace Virginia, built at the Popham colony in 1607-1608, sailed out of history and into mystery. But the first European ship ever built in New England is expected to appear again in the waters of the Kennebec River, thanks to the longtime efforts of the Maine’s First Ship group. Given Bath’s shipbuilding heritage in the years since the Popham Colony came and went, the Virginia project has remained afloat, even under pressures from a tough economy. The keel – essentially the backbone of a ship, from which the hull is built – will be laid at a 19th century freight shed at the corner of Commercial and Lambard streets at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 3, beginning the reconstruction of the approximately 50-foot vessel. The Jamestown colony in Virginia tends to resonate more in history than its partner English colonial mission, which wound up hundreds of miles up the coast and was named for the venture’s financier, Sir John Popham. Unlike Jamestown, the Popham Col-

ony lasted only a little more than a year and was brought to its end by Popham’s death and a harsh winter. Besides the Virginia, which brought many surviving colonists back to England, the men also built the walled settlement called Fort St. George. Tony Gibbs, a Maine’s First Ship board member, called the pinnace a “sturdy little craft” and noted that a naval architect and shipwright identified in the colony’s records as Digby of London designed the Virginia and supervised its construction. One challenge to the reconstruction mission is the lack of any plans for the original vessel. A sketch on a contemporary map suggests the Virginia’s appearance, and a research team has investigated English ship design and construction of the 17th century and connected that information with other historical rebuilds, Gibbs said. One of the researchers, John Bradford, discusses that work in a forthcoming book, and Maine naval architect David Wyman drew up reconstruction plans. Gibbs said those plans marry the greatest amount of historical accuracy with

its ups and downs, but recent history suggests a more optimistic future. Last year the organization saw the construction of the Jane Stevens, an historic type of craft called a shallop that is rowed and sailed. Morse High School students built the 18-foot vessel and launched it last summer with guidance from shipwright Will West, science teacher Eric Varney and filmmaker Patti Irish. Gibbs noted that the shallop effort created enough enthusiasm to bolster the original reconstruction process. The process will not be quick and easy, though: a continued page 28

Rail officials consider alternate sites for Brunswick train depot By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — The executive director of the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority told Brunswick residents last week that officials are considering alternate locations for an Amtrak maintenance facility. Addressing a standing-room-only crowd, Patricia Quinn assured residents that NNEPRA would give equal consideration to land in east Brunswick and the Brunswick Industrial Park, along with already identified property between Church Road and Stanwood Street. Concerns that a nearly 40,000-squarefoot layover facility would disrupt the character of the Church-Stanwood neighborhood, reduce property values and harm neighbors’ health prompted more than 100 people to attend the June 23 forum in the Town Council chambers. Every resident who spoke opposed the site, including two town councilors, Debbie Atwood and David Watson, and the founder of a Brunswick engineering firm that specializes in noise control. Neighbors also filed a lawsuit in early June challenging a variance NNEPRA received from the Zoning Board of Appeals that would allow the construction of the facility. The forum, organized by state Sen. Stan Gerzofsky, D-Brunswick, was called in response to mounting opposition to the project. Brunswick’s entire state legislative delegation attended, along with a staffer from the office of U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, and representatives from the Maine Department of Transportation, Amtrak and Parsons Brinckerhoff, a consulting firm hired by NNEPRA. Quinn explained that initially, NNEPRA considered the Church-Stanwood site ideal because it was for sale, has a history of railroad use, and would not require Downeaster trains to cross Maine Street. “It is railroad property and it had been railroad property,” Quinn said in a follow-up interview on Friday. “It is a

railroad yard with a residential neighborhood adjacent to it.” Even though the rail authority is now reconsidering that location in response to citizen opposition, it is still moving ahead with purchasing the site, she said. DOT Commissioner David Bernhardt said the state has an interest in purchasing land alongside the railroad tracks because the tracks are state-owned north of Church Road. “(The state) owns a lot of track, we felt this was an opportunity to acquire some property that in the future could be used on the freight side, not necessarily passenger,” he said. If no layover facility is built, the DOT will own the property, he said. With so many parties involved in the project, it’s unclear which agency ultimately has jurisdiction. In May, Brunswick’s attorney, Pat Scully, suggested the town has no authority over the project because it is regulated by the Surface Transportation Board, a federal agency. But in April, NNEPRA approached the Zoning Board of Appeals for a variance to local zoning because, at the time, the authority was unaware it did not need town approval. On Thursday, Quinn said multiple agencies would have jurisdiction over the project. “It is a collage of lots of different things,” she said. “It goes back to what decision is being made.” One thing is clear, however: the authority does not have to consult the town’s code enforcement office or seek building permits, Quinn said. continued page 22

Crooker offers property for trains, parking But with parking issues downtown coming to a head with the development of Maine Street Station and the planned arrival of Downeaster train service, Crooker believes his proposal has new life. He envisions a small parking lot downtown for short-term parking and a larger lot on his property for overnight or long-term parking. He said his $1.8 million price “is peanuts compared with the price of (a garage) downtown.” The town’s capital improvement plan estimated that a parking garage next to the McLellan building at the corner of Noble and Union streets would cost an estimated $3.4 million. NNEPRA Executive Director Patricia Quinn said her organization is not interested in building a long-term parking facility for the Downeaster, but that it is considering Crooker’s property for its layover facility. Anna Breinich, director of planning and development in Brunswick, said she hadn’t heard anything about putting a parking facility in east Brunswick, but said it is an option that should be considered.

BRUNSWICK — A Topsham construction company owner has been trying unsuccessfully to get the town to put a parking facility on his east Brunswick land. Now Ted Crooker, co-owner of Harry Crooker & Sons, has pitched the property to the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority for not only parking, but as the site for a proposed 40,000-square-foot train maintenance building. He believes the property is ideal for both uses because of its proximity to the railroad tracks, and its distance from downtown. “I think east Brunswick is the ideal situation for overnight parking and a train facility here in town,” the lifelong Brunswick resident told NNEPRA at a June 23 public forum on the project. “There are a few homes out there, but a lot less than you see (represented) here tonight,” he said, referring to the impact the facility would have on the neighborhood. Crooker said he had proposed building a parking garage on his land in 2002, and offered to sell 12 acres to the town for $1.8 million. He said his offer was rejected by then-Town Manager Don Gerrish. “He looked at me and said, ‘you’re crazy,’” Crooker recalled.

Renewable energy ideas touted for Brunswick Landing By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — When the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority hired consultants to imagine the future of renewable energy at Brunswick Landing, it encouraged them to think big. But it didn’t expect the consultants to think food. A National Renewable Energy Lab study paints a picture of the former U.S. Navy base as an industrial ecosystem complex, with companies utilizing each other’s waste products. Scott Huffman, the author of “Integrating Sustainable Economic and Net-Zero Energy Redevelopment at the Former Brunswick Air Naval Station,” envisions greenhouses filled with crops

like lettuce and mushrooms that would satisfy the local demand for fresh vegetables throughout the winter. The greenhouses would be heated by the waste heat from a biomass power plant, which would also pipe excess carbon dioxide to the greenhouses to accelerate plant growth. Leftover heat could be piped to other buildings, reducing heating costs for tenants. So does Tom Brubaker, the head of renewable energy at MRRA, think the base is ripe for food production? Not really. “That business sector is not something MRRA had in its targeted industry sectors,” he said. “If a company wanted to come in and

set up shop, we would certainly entertain them coming,” but the redevelopment authority has no plans to actively recruit growers. Still, he said he likes the idea of a large greenhouse in the style of Backyard Farms, the company that grows tomatoes indoors in Madison. Brubaker found the study’s other recommendation – an industrial complex centered around a wood burning power plant – much more compelling. “We want to be able to generate electricity at a rate that will attract tenants, and we want that energy to be green,” he said. Of all the renewable technologies surveyed, Huffman found biomass to be the most attractive due to the abundant wood resources in the area. Other technologies, like solar and wind, were found less cost effective. Both would take closer to 10 years to pay off, due to the poor wind and solar resources at the former base. Despite this, Brubaker said MRRA has been approached by a solar energy company that has proposed constructing solar panels on brownfields or capped landfills on the base. “To do that here is attractive ... you can’t do anything else with that land anyway,” he said. Whether MRRA selects a biomass plant, a solar energy facility, or something entirely different, Brubaker expects to be able to fulfill the energy needs of all of Brunswick Landing’s tenants and “beat the standard offer from (Central Maine Power Co.) for electricity.” According to Huffman, the particulars of redevelopment at Brunswick Landing make it a good candidate for being a netzero energy importer. For example, the fact that MRRA owns all the buildings on the base and leases them out will make it much easier to unify the heat and electricity

infrastructure than if each building were owned by a private company. Another advantage is the age and condition of the majority of the buildings. Because many of them will have to be renovated, Huffman said there is an opportunity to make energy efficiency improvements that might not happen if the buildings were in better condition. During the renovations, solar ventilation air heat panels could replace the siding on buildings. This technology, which looks like black paneling along the side of a building, absorbs heat and transfers it to air coming in and out of the building, reducing the need for additional heat. When installed as part of renovation, the report found that this technology can pay for itself in two years. Like the greenhouses, Brubaker wasn’t completely sold on this recommendation. “Maybe we’ll look at it to make buildings more efficient ... but I’m not sure it’s a technology we’ll pursue with vigor,” he said. As for the study’s suggestion that Brunswick Landing could be a carbon neutral development, meaning the facility could offset all the carbon dioxide generated by activities on the base by generating its own renewable electricity, Brubaker said that’s just not the goal of the redevelopment project. “We’re not trying to market that Brunswick Landing is going to be a carbon neutral development,” he said. He pointed to the airplanes flying in and out of Brunswick Executive Airport as an example of why that goal doesn’t make sense. “For us to be a carbon neutral development, right now at least, isn’t really possible,” he said. Still, he said, it’s nice to hear that “a nationally known laboratory believes we could get there.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext.123 or eguerin@theforecaster.net.

As one pest leaves, Brunswick braces for another’s arrival By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — The bout of cold, wet weather that struck in May may have had a silver lining: it wiped out the area’s burgeoning browntail moth population. But as one pest disappears from the area, local officials and the Maine Forest Service have teamed up to plan for the arrival of other invasive pests. Forest Service officials say the 11day period of rain and cold decimated browntail moth larvae. The caterpillars are notorious for devouring oak leaves, leaving entire sections of forest bare, and also causing rashes and even breathing problems in people. According to Charlene Donahue, a Maine Forest Service entomologist, the bad weather forced the caterpillars back into their nests, where they became infected with a naturally occurring fungus. She said that while monitoring the outbreak in the Brunswick area recently, she noticed dead caterpillars hanging from their nests with “a halo of fungal spores around them.” Donahue said the greater Brunswick area was the epicenter of the browntail moth invasion, with more than 7,000 acres of forest affected. Last year’s warm summer combined with milder winter

temperatures had Donahue concerned that the moth population was going to explode this summer. “We were seeing twice as many webs this year than last year and the year before,” she said. But since May’s cold and wet spell, Donahue said she has received few complaints of human encounters with the caterpillar, and has noticed more leaves on area oak trees. She predicted that for the Brunswick area, “the browntail moth caterpillar population will be down, and probably down for a number of years.” But while the moth population recedes, a new pest may be moving in. The emerald ashborer has wreaked havoc on ash trees throughout the Midwest, and Forest Service entomologists believe the pest will have arrived in Maine by 2015. To prepare for the bug’s arrival, the Forest Service and the town are teaming up to pilot an invasive pest response program called “Planning for the Arrival of Exotic Invasive Pests in Maine’s Urban and Community Forests.” According to Jan Santerre, who coordinates the project for the Forest Service, Brunswick’s response plan will be a model for communities around the state.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/94225

Brunswick is the first town in the state to develop a response plan for the emerald ashborer, which can kill a tree in one to three years. Santerre said addressing an emerald ashborer infestation can “completely overwhelm” a municipal budget, due to the high cost of removing multiple trees all at once. Santerre said the value of having a plan in advance is that a town will have identified which high-priority trees to try to save, and which to cut down early to prevent the insect from spreading. In addition, towns can put dead trees to a more productive use, like donating them to local artists, instead of turning them

into wood chips. As part of the Brunswick pilot program, Forest Service staff have placed emerald ashborer traps in trees around town to see if the pests are already here. The large, purple plastic sheets are tacky on one side and emit the odor of dead ash trees to attract the bugs. The traps have already been placed on the Bowdoin College quad, the Brunswick Mall, and on Water Street near the bike path. The project is funded by a nearly $49,000 grant from the National Forest Service and a $15,000 grant from the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund, and will run for 12 to 18 months.

Hear no evil: Cape Elizabeth School Board clamps down on public comment You’re a Cape Elizabeth parent whose child comes home from school on a Tuesday with news that raises your eyebrows. Maybe it’s the way cafeteria employees handled that day’s lunch food. Maybe it was the behavior of another kid on the school bus. Perhaps it wasn’t even disturbing: maybe your son or daughter has high praise for her social studies teacher. Good news or bad, you decide to attend the School Board meeting that night to share with the board and the other community members in the room, and those watching at home on TV. Forget about it. After last week’s board meeting, you’re out of luck. That’s because the School Board changed its policy on public participation. From now on, if you don’t provide at least seven days’ notice about your intention to speak about something that isn’t already on the agenda, you can’t say a word. And even if you do provide the notice required to speak at the next board meeting, whether you get on the agenda is up to the superintendent of schools or the board chairman. So much for true public participation at School Board meetings. How many residents actually plan their comments for a school board a week or more in advance? The purpose

of public comment is just that: to hear from the public. It may not be legally required of school boards, but it’s part of the tradition of elected boards to respect the public and hear those comments, whether the comments are informative, ridiculous or infuriating. It all comes with the territory and with the open, responsible conduct of the public’s business.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/93641

is “almost a recreational activity.”

Cape Elizabeth’s acting superintendent, Ken Murphy, says the change is “good policy” that will give board members time to prepare thoughtful discussion of the issues residents raise.

We seriously doubt that, and are disappointed by Murphy’s attitude toward the public. Most school boards, including Cape Elizabeth’s, already have policies prohibiting defamatory comments and discussion of personnel issues. Why not just enforce the existing rules instead of adopting a restrictive policy that’s a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist?

But members have that opportunity without the notice requirement. All they have to say is “gee, we don’t know the answer; we’ll look into it and discuss it next time.” In fact, many school boards actually prohibit their members from discussing non-agenda issues raised by the public for precisely that reason – they can’t be expected to provide intelligent responses on issues for which they’re unprepared.

Our fear, however, is that what underlies this policy change is a desire by the School Board and Murphy to maintain tight control over discussion and the flow of information. The Cape Elizabeth School Board is one of the few elected bodies in our coverage area that officially opposed changes considered this year by the Legislature that would have expanded the public’s rights under Maine’s Freedom of Access Act. Is it surprising that now the board is restricting public participation and leaving it up to the school chief and board chairman to decide who gets to speak and who doesn’t?

But they don’t cover their ears and refuse to listen by preventing the public from speaking.

One more thing: Murphy also claims that “most” school boards already have policies that don’t allow public comment on non-agenda issues.

Murphy went on to say there’s nothing “undemocratic” about the new policy and even suggested that most spontaneous public comments about items not already on board meeting agendas come from people for whom criticizing and humiliating school department employees

Canada and Vancouver in particular have been on my mind since I saw the news that Betty Fox had died.

Global

Matters

as talent, he took up distance running at the suggestion of his coach. During his first year at British Columbia’s Simon Fraser University, however, Fox was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer that had begun to develop in his knee. Doctors recommended amputation of his leg followed by chemotherapy, advising him that his chances for survival would be greatly enhanced. So Fox underwent the surgery that removed his leg above the knee and endured sixteen months of chemotherapy. During the course of his treatment, and as many of his fellow patients died, he began to consider what might be done to increase cancer awareness and raise funds to support further research.

Betty Fox was the mother of Terry Fox, whose courage, strength and determination remain the stuff of legend. Indeed, the Terry Fox story is one so moving and in its way so emblematic of what is right about Canada – its humility, its generosity, its ability to punch above its weight – that it more than bears retelling. Born in Manitoba, Terry Fox was raised in the Vancouver suburb of Port Coquitlam. A dogged high school basketball standout who excelled due to effort as much

Inspired by the story of an amputee who had completed the New York Marathon, and mindful of the need for increased research funding, Fox began to train not merely to complete a single marathon, but essentially to run a marathon every day – every day – beginning in Newfoundland on Canada’s east coast and crossing the breadth of Canada to finish at the Pacific Ocean in British Columbia. His goal was to raise one dollar from every Canadian, $24 million at the time, to support cancer research. He called the effort the “Marathon of Hope.” In April 1980, dipping his prosthetic foot in the icy Atlantic, Fox began his distinctive hop-stride journey across the country. He encountered snow, gale-force winds and heavy rains in the early days of his run. His efforts were frequently ignored and he struggled not only with the physical beating that the run imposed on his body, but with demoralizing public apathy and an early lack of response to his fundraising efforts. Yet he continued the slog, fighting traffic, enduring the pain and slowly making his way across the Maritimes and into Ontario. Along the way he spoke to any group that would listen; he met with other cancer patients, he gave interviews to the smallest newspapers and the largest television stations. Eventually, he began to attract the public’s attention, and by the time he reached Toronto, he had succeeded in focusing the nation on

cancer and on the need to fund cancer research. He had raised more than $1 million when tragedy struck.

Just outside Thunder Bay, Ontario, in September 1980, Fox experienced an uncharacteristic shortness of breath, coughing fits and unusual pain. Rushed to the hospital, he later emerged on a gurney, tearfully informing reporters that the Marathon of Hope was suspended; he would be returning home for treatment. His cancer had begun to spread.

Notwithstanding the treatments, but after completing more than 3,300 miles of his run across Canada, Terry Fox died, on June 28, 1981.

No column can do justice to Fox’s grit or passion, nor does space permit a deeper discussion of Betty Fox’s insistence that her son’s legacy not become “corporatized.” Suffice it to say that today, Terry Fox Runs take place around the world, and the Terry Fox Foundation has raised more than $500 million for cancer research. In the end, what makes a nation, if not its citizens? What defines national character, if not the extraordinary deeds of ordinary people?

This week, which marks both the anniversary of Terry Fox’s untimely death and the celebration of Canada’s birth, I propose to raise a Molson to our friends to the north.

Courage, character and compassion are shared values that transcend our shared border, and are cause for celebration in Boston, Vancouver and all points in between. Happy birthday, Canada.

To our readers: Early holiday deadline for next week’s letters Offices of the The Forecaster will be closed for the Independence Day holiday on Monday, July 4. Because of that, the deadline for letters to the editor intended for publication next week is noon this Friday, July 1. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend.

Editorial from previous page Portland, Scarborough, Falmouth, School Administrative District 51, Regional School Unit 5, Chebeague Island, Brunswick and RSU 1 – have no such restriction and seven of those expressly allow comments on any subject. Another, SAD 75, does have a published policy that prohibits non-agenda comments and requires notice to speak. But in practice, according to Superintendent Michael Wilhelm, the policy is not enforced and the public is allowed to speak on any issue. That leaves Yarmouth as the only other town or city we cover where members of the public can’t step up to the podium at any meeting and discuss whatever they believe is important enough to share with the local school board. And even there, the policy requires the School Committee to conduct two open-agenda meetings a year to allow residents not interested in making appointments to speak to the board. There’s no such accommodation in the Cape Elizabeth policy. Yarmouth, by the way, is where Murphy was the longtime school chief before he took the interim job in Cape Elizabeth. We hope Cape Elizabeth’s School Board shows more respect for the public and the flow of public information under Meredith Nadeau, who becomes superintendent in a few weeks, than it has recently demonstrated under Murphy’s interim guidance. For a start, the board should reverse last week’s policy change.

Columns welcome We encourage readers to submit Forecaster Forum op-ed columns. Forum columns are limited to 700 words.

Kiss my toxic landfill In the waning days of the current session, the Maine Legislature managed to slip a number of fast ones by us, perhaps none more misguided than the decision to allow the owners of the paper mills in Millinocket and East Millinocket to “give” the state their toxic Dolby landfill because potential new The Universal owners might be reluctant to take on such a liability. Gov. Paul LePage makes a lot of noise about welfare reform, but apparently he doesn’t mean corporate welfare. “Sure, Brookfield Asset Management, let us take this $17 million liability off your hands so you can sell your paper mills to a bunch of Edgar Allen Beem Chinese investors. Thirty years’ worth of toxic waste leaching into the groundwater? No problem. Think nothing of it.” LD 1567 was one of the governor’s bills and was introduced by Sen. Thomas Saviello, R-Wilton, a former employee of the Verso paper mill in Jay. The bill passed the Maine Senate 34-1, with only Sen. Dick Woodbury, U-Yarmouth, opposed. The motives of the legislators who supported this state bailout of a toxic asset were without a doubt noble – the hopes of preserving good paper mill jobs. But they were also naive in the extreme. If they think Chinese investors are going to resurrect the Katahdin paper mills and put Mainers back to work making paper, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell them. Our state legislators were so intimidated by corporate blackmail – “Take this filthy landfill off our hands or we’ll sell these mills for scrap. We mean it. Don’t make us do it.” – that they were afraid even to place reasonable conditions on the governor’s bill. “We suggested amending the bill to take ownership of the landfill only if the mill actually sells, not at the time of the purchase and sale agreement,” Woodbury said. “That apparently wasn’t good enough. We suggested amending the bill to take ownership only if the buyer actually operates it actively, and restores the jobs that they imply they are going to restore. That wasn’t good enough, either.” So much for free-market capitalism, governor.

Notebook

Forget about corporate social responsibility. Just kiss the dirty butt of Brookfield Asset Management. And don’t let me ever hear you say a word against corporate bailouts again. Bail, baby, bail. The reason I’m not optimistic about the future of the paper industry in Maine is that I grew up in the shadow of a paper mill. The Westbrook of my youth was S.D. Warren. I lived in the section town called Cumberland Mills. I attended the Warren Congregational Church. I studied at the Warren Memorial Library. I played baseball on Warren League Field. The Westbrook High gymnasium was the Warren Gym. The football field (created by filling in a wetland) was named Olmsted Field, after the president of S.D. Warren. The best chance of a free college education was to win one of the S.D. Warren Scholarships. Sure, the Presumpscot River was an open sewer and the smoggy air smelled like rotten eggs, but we called that “The Sweet Smell of Success.” The mill employed 2,500 people. Everyone I knew had family members who worked there. My buddy Scott’s dad was the mill manager. Like a lot of mill families, Scott’s family landscaped their gardens with the little round white stones that came out of the mill’s debarking drums. Today, Scott is retired from his own career in the paper industry and serves as Gov. Paul LePage’s legislative coordinator. He ought to know as well as anyone that papermaking doesn’t have much of a future in Maine. In case you hadn’t noticed, Scottie, there are only 340 people left at what is now the SAPPI mill in Westbrook. To quote Bruce Springsteen, “these jobs are going, boys, and they ain’t coming back to your hometown.” The future of the North Maine Woods lies not in pulp and paper, but in the preservation of the natural environment, outdoor recreation and ecotourism. Millinocket will never again be Magic City and East Millinocket will never again be a paper mill town. Their future is as the gateway to Baxter State Park. Of course, now the state is going to have to spend $17 million to clean up the mess the mills left behind before anyone wants to invest in that future.

Red Sox, Yankees in familiar spots at midway point (Ed. Note: Bryan O’Connor is a longtime baseball aficionado and former softball rec league slugging sensation. He lives in South Portland with his wife, Jill, and their two young children, and will be providing his take on Major League Baseball for The Forecaster this summer) By Bryan O’Connor If you’re anything like me, the word “baseball” conjures wonderful images and sounds, like the crack of the bat, the smooth footwork of middle infielders turning a double play, and 35,000 fans gasping and bellowing as a Kevin Youkilis drive barely clears the Green Monster. Baseball’s other powerful image, at least to a New England fan, is the sometimes ghastly American League East standings, whether viewed online, in the paper, or in living color on the aforementioned Monster. With the 2011 Major League Baseball season half in the books, let’s review the first three months in baseball’s most grueling division. Before the season, I predicted the AL East would wrap up like this: Red Sox 94-68 Yankees 93-69 Rays 90-72 Blue Jays 80-82 Orioles 73-89 As of June 25, the division looks like this: Red Sox 44-31 Yankees 43-31 Rays 42-34 Blue Jays 37-39 Orioles 34-39 A glance at the standings above suggests that the season has been quite predictable, the Red Sox riding offseason acquisition Adrian Gonzalez’s all-around excellence and David Ortiz’s resurgent bat to the best record in the league, half a game ahead of the Yankees, with the Rays within shouting distance and the bottom feeders fighting to stay relevant. However, having lived through the first three months of the season, we know it has been anything but predictable. No one could have guessed, for instance, that the Red Sox would start the season 0-6 and 2-10, then proceed to rip off 42 wins in their next 60 games. Very few expected the Yankees to roll over in their first nine meetings with Boston in 2011, losing eight, including all six played in the Bronx. And anyone who watched those nine games is probably surprised that the Yankees have won 42 of the 63 games they’ve played against the rest of the league. An in-depth look at Boston’s first 75 games shows that, aside from Carl Crawford’s miserable April, when he batted .155 with a .204 on base percentage, and just about every at bat in which J.D. Drew hasn’t walked, the offense has performed as expected. Gonzalez is an MVP candidate, leading the league in batting average and RBIs. Ortiz has 17 home runs and gets on base nearly 40 percent of the time, a similar rate to Kevin Youkilis and Dustin Pedroia, whose bats have recently started to match

their patience in effectiveness. On the other side of the ball, Jon Lester has been worse than expected, walking 36 hitters in just over 97 innings, but he has nine wins to show for that wildness. Josh Beckett has taken Lester’s place as the staff ace, posting a 1.86 ERA in his first 14 starts. Daisuke Matsuzaka begged for Tommy John surgery (though I’m not sure it will fix his unwillingness to throw strikes), and John Lackey has been bad, but with the offense rolling the way it is, the Sox should be fine with a little Tim Wakefield here and some Alfredo Aceves there. In contrast to the streaky Red Sox, the Yankees have been consistently good, but their production has come from unexpected places. Curtis Granderson leads the team in home runs, runs scored, and slugging percentage. Russell Martin, who has cooled off lately, had nine home runs by May 24. Bartolo Colon and the stem cells in his bionic arm have struck out 72 batters and walked just 18. It’s hard to imagine these three keeping up the pace, but there are plenty of underachievers ready to pick up their slack when they regress. C.C. Sabathia leads the American League in baserunners allowed this season, but, like Lester, has nine wins to show for his mediocrity. Sabathia will pitch better in the second half, and the ‛Stripes are bound to see better things out of Nick Swisher, who’s hitting .235 and Brett Gardner, who has been caught stealing in 10 of his 24 attempts. It’s no secret that these two teams, while they do have weaknesses, are the two best teams in the American League and they should fight for the division until the bitter end. While we may sometimes forget it, there are three other teams in the American League East. The Rays have been on a rocky road this season, losing eight of their first nine, winning eight of their next nine, and finally settling into the third place role they’ve been stuck in every day since May 24th. Tampa’s pitching is top heavy, with James Shields among the league leaders in ERA (2.40) and strikeouts (108) and David Price pitching better than his leagueaverage ERA indicates. In contrast, rookie Jeremy Hellickson is getting it done with smoke and mirrors, keeping his ERA near 3 despite walking almost as many batters as he strikes out. The Rays will not compete in the AL East without more significant contributions from Wade Davis, Jeff Niemann, or Alex Cobb at the back end of the rotation. Offensively, the Rays are not the force they were last year. With Carlos Pena and Carl Crawford gone and Evan Longoria still recovering from an early-season injury, the Rays have depended on Matt Joyce, who’s slugging .534 and Ben Zobrist, who leads

the team with 24 doubles and 34 walks, to stay competitive. Longoria and B.J. Upton, who’s batting .219, will have to contribute more in the second half if the Rays expect to contend. Toronto has been a one-man show. Jose Bautista leads the major leagues in home runs (23), on base percentage (.473) and slugging percentage (.664). Ricky Romero is a second-tier ace, capable of standing up to a Lester or Sabathia on occasion, but since promising rookie Kyle Drabek was demoted to Triple A after leading the majors in walks, it’s been clear that the Blue Jays don’t have the depth to compete for the division this year. The Orioles signed veterans Vlad Guerrero, J.J. Hardy, Derrek Lee, Mark Reynolds and Justin Duchscherer in the offseason in what looks like a successful effort to finish closer to fourth place in the AL East. Expect a fresh round of prospects in Baltimore after most of these players are traded at the deadline. The first half of the season has been marked by streaks and lead changes. Expect the division lead to be passed back and forth throughout the dog days of summer,

with the bottom of the standings shaking up as well. But when October comes, there’s no reason to think the division won’t look exactly like it did in late June, with the two richest, best-managed, and yes, most reviled teams in baseball playing into autumn.

Estate planning for your peace of mind

By Lauren Epstein

inherit your assets after your death.

People can be very good at finding excuses to avoid updating their estate plan. Perhaps it is the thought of meeting with an attorney (and the potential expense). Or maybe it is finding the time to actually consider the decidedly depressing subjects of death and incapacity. Or it could be that you think you don’t need a will. However, a well-drafted estate plan, which generally includes a will, financial power of attorney and health care directive, gives you control over who will help you make decisions if you become incapacitated and who will

Last will and testament A will directs the distribution of your probate assets after your death (assets that have a joint owner or that name a beneficiary will pass to the other joint owner or beneficiary automatically upon death). There is no right or wrong way to dispose of your assets. Although children, in certain circumstances, and spouses have special protection under Maine inheritance law, you can generally otherwise leave assets to anyone you choose, including other family members,

charities, or dear friends. Without a will, your assets will be distributed in accordance with Maine law. This may or may not reflect what you want. A will also permits you to name a personal representative. The personal representative is responsible for collecting your assets and distributing them in accordance with the will. If you do not have a will, Maine law provides a list of people who have priority to be appointed as personal representative, but this does not necessarily take into

account who would actually be the best person to serve in this role.

Additionally, a will can also allow you to plan for an incapacitated spouse. For a spouse living in a long-term care facility and receiving public benefits, inheriting assets from the “community” spouse could make him ineligible for those benefits. Instead, the community spouse can include a special type of trust in her will, called a supplementalcontinued next page

needs trust, for her spouse’s benefit. The trust assets can be used to pay for those items and services that are not otherwise covered by public benefits. At the same time, the spouse in the facility can remain eligible for public assistance. A qualified elder-law attorney can determine whether a supplemental needs trust will work for your particular situation.­ For most people, a simple will should be sufficient to distribute assets after death; however, if your total net worth is more than the applicable Maine estate tax exemption amount (currently $1,000,000) or federal estate-taxes exemption amount (currently $5,000,000) you may benefit from including taxplanning provisions in your estate plan.

Although your agent has a legal duty to serve in your best interest, there is always a risk that he or she could abuse these broad powers. It is critical that you have absolute trust in your agent.

Although there are forms available online, not all of these forms contain certain provisions required by Maine law. An attorney can make sure that the document is properly drafted and will explain the powers you are granting so you fully understand how the POA will work.

Health care advance directive Many doctors’ offices and hospitals offer a health-care advance-directive form prepared by the Maine Hospital Association. This comprehensive form contains both a health-care power of attorney, in which you name an agent to help you make health care decisions if you become incapacitated, as well as a living will, in which you can express your wishes about being kept alive by artificial means. The form also contains instructions regarding burial arrangements and organ donation. By expressing your wishes regarding end-of-life choices, you can relieve your family of the anxiety that often arises when faced with making these difficult decisions for a loved one in a medical crisis. It is important to remember that estate

planning documents live with you and should be reviewed every few years to ensure that they still reflect your wishes. Taking the time to review and update your estate planning documents is invaluable in providing both yourself and your loved ones with peace of mind for the future.

Durable power of attorney In a durable financial power of attorney (POA), you name an agent to help you make financial decisions. The POA can take effect immediately (meaning that both you and your agent can act on your behalf) or take effect only when you become incapacitated. A general POA, with no limitations, is a powerful document. Your agent could do anything for you financially that you can do for yourself. For example, your agent could write checks; open and close bank accounts; or sell real estate. Also, depending on how the document is drafted, your agent may also be permitted to make gifts of your assets.

Out & About

Ogunquit Playhouse launches ‘Summer of Love’ By Scott Andrews Nearly every summer theater schedule sports at least one “jukebox musical,” a stage show that is built around hit tunes that were originally created for diverse audiences at different times by disparate writers. “Summer of Love” is Ogunquit Playhouse’s offering in this department. It’s an East Coast premiere and it runs through July 16. Freeport Factory Stage is a new venue on Maine’s theatrical scene. The company is running “Ida’s Havin’ A Yard Sale,” starring Downeast humorist Susan Poulin, through July 2. Several musical offerings over the Fourth of July weekend stand out, and selecting one over another is difficult. The most intriguing concert of the weekend features “Outrageous Banjo” virtuoso Peter Mezoian and Friends playing at the Saco River Grange Hall. And the biggest concert of the summer happens on Independence Day: a free, alfresco performance of Portland Symphony Orchestra’s “Patriotic Pops.”

‘Summer of Love’ The summer of 1967 was a watershed year in American social history, a season of cultural sea change marked by largescale hippie happenings in San Francisco and elsewhere. A dominant theme was psychedelia, and a cornucopia of mindaltering drugs prominently characterized the hippie subculture. Musically speaking that summer was dominated by West Coast pop bands and songwriters such as the Mamas and the Papas, Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother and the Holding Company. The hippies themselves proclaimed it as the “Summer of Love,” and that’s the title of a new jukebox musical that recalls two dozen songs of the era. Penned by Roger Bean – a West Coast theater director and scriptwriter who specializes in jukebox musicals – “Summer of Love” runs through July 16 at Ogunquit Playhouse. And thanks to Brad Kenney, Ogunquit’s executive artistic director, Maine gets the honor of the East Coast premiere. The jukebox show has become a staple

the show ends with a reaffirmation of their love. Freeport Factory Stage, on Depot Street just downhill from the Freeport Station retail complex, presents “Ida’s Havin’ A Yard Sale” through July 2 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday; call 865-5505.

of Broadway and summer theater, but most have fluffy, inconsequential plots and cardboard characters that do little more than provide an aesthetic and artistic unity to an otherwise unrelated collection of popular songs. Bean’s “Summer of Love” introduces social and political dynamics into the stock formula. He also eschews the showwithin-a-show format that is one of the common features of the jukebox musical, writing a script that attempts to fully integrate the traditional three elements of musical theater: book, lyrics and music. “Make Your Own Kind of Music” is the title of one of the songs in this show, and it’s the principal theme of Bean’s book. Other tunes of the era include “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair),” “Different Drum,” “White Rabbit,” “War,” “One Tin Soldier” and “Piece of My Heart.” The first act tends to be fairly light, but the second passes through a crisis of drug abuse – several of the artists associated with these songs died of overdoses – before emerging with a positive resolution that stresses the hippie ideals of love and peace. Bean also directs a cast of 12. Plus he’s surrounded himself with the team

that has worked to create several of his earlier shows, including “The Marvelous Wonderettes.” These include music director Michael Borth, set designer Michael Carnahan and costume designer Bobby Pearce. Ogunquit Playhouse, a mile south of the village on Route 1, presents “Summer of Love” through July 16. Call 646-5511 or visit www.ogunquitplayhouse.org.

‘Ida’s Havin’ A Yard Sale’ Maine humor is a well-established regional sub-genre of comedy, most famously identified with the late Marshall Dodge. One of the top current practitioners is Susan Poulin, an Eliot woman who is far better known as her alter ego: Ida Leclair, a woman who runs with moose. Ida and hubby Charlie live in a doublewide mobile home in the mythical town of Mahoosuc Mills, which seems fairly close to Bangor. She’s got several one-woman shows built around Ida Leclair and her doings, and Freeport Factory Stage is running one of them through this Saturday. “Ida’s Havin’ A Yard Sale” is a marvelous showcase for Poulin’s gentle sense of Downeast humor, poking good-natured fun at Maine characters and social situations over the course of an enjoyable evening. Ida sells lots of her kitschy cultch, greets a number of friends and ruminates about human relationships and the science of successful yard sales. There’s a thin plot that revolves around separating Charlie from his favorite armchair and

Peter Mezoian is a banjo virtuoso who grew up in South Portland and now travels the world with his music, often cruising the Seven Seas aboard globegirdling mega-ships. This Saturday he’ll be securely on terra firma as he launches the 2011 summer season at the Saco River Grange Hall, Pat Packard’s marvelously melodic performing arts center at about a dozen miles west of Portland. This is a repeat of 2010’s hugely successful program. Mezoian’s specialty is stretching the boundaries of banjo music by venturing into a variety of different genres. Joining Mezoian on Saturday will be a five-piece band – trumpet, saxophone, drums, keyboard and bass – fronted by Mark Tipton. Expect a high-energy program that sparkles with musical fireworks, mostly revolving around old-time Americana, ragtime, 1920s-era jazz, the Beatles and Broadway show tunes. Catch Peter Mezoian & Friends at 7:30 p.m. July 2 at the Saco River Grange Hall, 29 Salmon Falls Road in Bar Mills in Buxton. Call 929-6472.

‘Patriotic Pops’

It’s appropriate that a major concert celebrating our country’s freedom should be free – and punctuated by a spectacular fireworks display. That’s the story of “Patriotic Pops,” which will be presented Monday evening on Portland’s Eastern Prom thanks to the sponsorship of a group of businesses that banded together last year to revive the annual musical spectacular. PSO Maestro Robert Moody’s program is filled with rousing marches, a tribute to the Armed Forces and plenty of patriotic favorite tunes. These include of course, “The Star-Spangeld Banner,” “America the Beautiful,” “God Bless America” and a couple of marches by the quintessential American bandleader, John Philip Sousa. By tradition, the finale is Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture,” with the fireworks kicking in toward the end of the piece. Celebrants are urged to arrive early and pack a picnic.

Access from page 1 park elsewhere. When she approached harvesters about the problem, she said they were openly hostile, threatening and even tried to run over her dog. But some fishermen said Hickey and a young woman that was living with her up until recently haven’t exactly been polite, either. “She swears and runs people off,” Wilson said of the young woman. “She’s all but waved guns in people’s faces.” Scott Moody, a local shellfish harvester and member of the Marine Resources Committee, said Hickey has blocked access to the landing and threatened to tow people’s trucks. Hickey said she tried putting up private-property signs and even asked the town to place a No Parking sign at the beach, but it has not been successful. As a result, she hired a lawyer and surveyor to help her clarify the boundary and determine what type of access she is required to allow on her beach. But the conflicts continue, and have escalated to the point where town admin-

Admiral from page 1 tie a fly on with one hand, and using his feet, and they can tie a fly on faster than I can.” Pam Payeur, program director of the Wounded Heroes Program of Maine, noted that “the majority of people out there have no idea that there’s a transitional gap between the time (troops) are discharged due to their injuries, which is the same point of time their pay from the military stops ... and the time that their disability benefits kick in. There’s a very large gap there in time, at least usually six months to a year.” Payeur added that “during that time, most of them cannot work and have no income. So we step in and take care of the daily financial things that we all have to deal with that they no longer can, (until) they’re back on their feet again.” Those financial needs include rent, utilities, cell phone bills, heating oil, vehicle repairs and groceries.

Road to admiralty Johnson, 64, retired from the U.S. Navy in 2004. He purchased his Harpswell home in 1992 during an assignment at the Pentagon, three years before his promotion to admiral. His assignments have taken him all over the world, but his roots are in Maine: Westmanland, a town in Aroostook County. Following college graduation in 1968 he planned to attend law school, but the Vietnam War had reached its height, and he was told he would be drafted. Johnson was given three months to find an officer program, and he chose

www.theforecaster.net istrators say they get complaints almost daily about access to the landing. Now, in an attempt to ensure public access to Harpswell Sound, the town has received a grant from the State Planning Office to research the legal history of the landing. A survey will also be mailed to Harpswell residents to determine the extent of historical use of the landing. But Deputy Town Administrator Terri Sawyer said she hopes the issue won’t end up in court. “I’m positive we will reach an agreement,” she said. Town Administrator Kristi Eiane said the town is willing to work with Hickey, but it has a responsibility to maintain access to a public landing that has been used for more than 30 years. Although Hickey’s property runs to the low-water mark below the beach, legally she cannot interfere with people’s right to fish, fowl and navigate in the intertidal zone. She does not, however, have to allow parking on her land. Eiane said she and Sawyer have been brainstorming ideas to solve the parking problem. Legally, the town owns rights of way on both sides of Hildreth Road, where people could park.

Aviation Officer Candidate School, a flight training facility in Pensacola, Fla., which he said is “just like the movie ‘An Officer and a Gentleman.’” “Nothing very noble or elegant,” he reflected. “I didn’t go to the Naval Academy, I wasn’t (in Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps), I didn’t know anything about the military, I knew nothing about flying. But life is full of serendipity; and it takes twists and turns. ... I had no idea that I would ever go down that road.” Johnson said he planned to serve the minimum amount of time and return to law school, but clearly life had other plans. He became a naval aviator, and his initial sea duty assignments through 1986 were in carrier-based squadrons. He advanced to executive officer and commanding officer, and from 1988 to 1990 he was deputy commander of Carrier Air Wing Six, and from 19941995 commander of Carrier Air Wing Three. Among his many shore duty assignments were the Naval War College, from which he graduated with the highest distinction, and service in the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as executive assistant to the chairman, Gen. Colin Powell. His first flag assignment after making admiral was as director of operations, plans, and policy on the command staff of U.S. Atlantic Fleet Forces. Subsequent jobs included senior military assistant to then-Defense Sec. William Cohen, another Maine native.

considering expanding parking on Gravel Pit Road and filling in the giant pothole at the bottom of the road, where it meets the beach. But Harbormaster Jim Hays is concerned that even with the road improvement, harvesters will have to cross at least some part of Hickey’s property while backing their boats into the water, a concern that Hickey shares. The access problems at Hildreth Road landing are exacerbated by issues at other town landings. Moody said it’s becoming increasingly difficult to park at town landings, as private property owners encroach around them. At Graveyard Point landing, for example, a retaining wall juts into the parking lot. He said harvesters have taken to launching their boats from the Route 24 landing just across the Gurnet Bridge, but that parking is a problem, there, too. “We’re just slowly losing access,” he said. “Our town isn’t really motivated to protect it.” But Sawyer said the town is very concerned about maintaining public access to the shoreline, and is working on opening up Graveyard Point landing to make Johnson took command in 2000 of the U.S. Sixth Fleet and Naval Striking and Support Forces in southern Europe. From 2001-2004 he served as commander of U.S. Naval Forces Europe in London, and of Allied Forces Southern Europe, in Naples, Italy. He retired in 2004 after many decorations, and afterward founded Snow

it “not so intimidating.” Selectman Alison Hawkes said preserving access is a priority for her, too. “For us in Harpswell, having those public accesses, not just for our diggers, for our town, is what draws tourists here, what draws people here,” she said. She said she can understand why Hickey may be annoyed by shellfish harvesters, who are often at the landing early in the morning to launch boats. But she said she hopes Hickey can understand that people use the landing to make a living, and that both sides can operate with mutual respect. Meanwhile, as the town tries to resolve the conflict, Moody and Wilson said they are going to continue to use over the Hildreth Road landing. “The harvesters are going down there, going to use it, and going to be respectful, until it goes to court,” Moody said. “I’m not going to let (Hickey) keep someone like me from making my living,” Wilson said.

Depot from page 3 The facility will also not generate property taxes in Brunswick, and its employees may not all be from the area. Quinn said the current employees of a Portland maintenance facility will be allowed to transfer to Brunswick when the new facility is completed, although she did not know how many would do so. She said that the facility’s employees spend between $1 million and $2 million in goods and services in the greater Portland area, and anticipated a similar impact on the Brunswick economy. While NNEPRA’s consultants will be taking public opinion into consideration,

the final decision about site selection will be made by the authority’s board. Quinn said Brunswick residents are welcome to attend the authority’s public meetings, however they will not be able to vote on the final site selection. When determining where to put the facility, engineering consultant Jan O’Kollowicz said he would consider how well the properties fit in with the surrounding neighborhoods, the noise the facility would generate, environmental impact and the cost to NNEPRA. In response to concerns from the public, Quinn said, NNEPRA is now pursuing a design that would allow three Downeaster trains to be serviced indoors to minimize the impact on abutting property owners.

July 1, 2011

The consultants are expected to have more information for the town within three weeks. Quinn said she thought the meeting went well and that people asked a lot of good questions. She said she worried that people had an extreme view of what the layover facility would be like, and is eager to provide neighbors with information about the size, noise level, and operation of the facility. Given the zoning of the property and its history, she said it is possible that it could be put to a heavier, more industrial use, and that the NNEPRA facility may be a good use in comparison. Anna Nelson, whose property abuts the proposed site, attended the meeting and

said she was pleased that NNEPRA is now considering the impact of the facility on the neighborhood. “We’re all pretty encouraged at this point that NNEPRA has pulled back into a neutral position,” Nelson said. She said she and her neighbors intend to be vigilant in coming weeks as they await further information from NNEPRA, and are planning on attending the authority’s board meetings in the interim.

“But if space becomes available and it’s not exactly convenient, we’ll take it,” Glover said. He noted that the exchange, which serves anyone in need, has been housed in an old building – the church was built more than 150 years ago – and access is limited. “We’re on the second floor, and the stairs are narrow and steep,” he said. “Even though we put a chairlift in, it’s not quite safe.

Glover also praised the work of the exchange’s volunteers over the years, as well as that of Wallace Hinkley, a founding member of the Food Bank, who for years ran the clothing exchange almost single-handedly. “He was one of the most generous men in the community,” Glover said. “He must have given clothes to hundreds of people. ...
