No time for retirement

60 years at BIW for 80-year-old Clayton Grover

By Alex Lear BATH — People pushing 80 are expected to be deeply into retirement. But Clayton Grover still travels from his Newcastle home to Bath Iron Works, where he has worked for six decades. It's an important year for

Grover. Along with reaching 60 years at BIW in August and turning 80 the next month, he also was grand marshal in Bath's Independence Day parade, a cornerstone of the city's annual Heritage Days celebration. "I'm honored; they asked me to think about it, and they really wanted me to (do it), so I said, 'well, I'll try it, and see what happens,'" he said, See page 19

Clayton Grover of Newcastle, grand marshal of the Bath Heritage Days parade, will mark 60 years at Bath Iron Works in August. He turns 80 the next month.

By Amber Cronin BRUNSWICK — The Town Council on July 9 will hear a second reading and vote on borrowing funds for a new police station. At their June 18 meeting, councilors unanimously approved the recommendation of the Police Station Building Committee. It includes the addition of an exterior sallyport and an alternative heating system, both of which added to the total project costs and bumped the proposed expenditure up to $5.6 million dollars. Councilors praised the work of the committee and said that the new police station will provide a better working environment for officers. Opponents, however, still feel the cost of the proposed police station is too high. Former Councilor Karen Klatt, in a letter to The Forecaster, said she thinks the town could have gone about the process better and not “circumvented the will of the people.” Klatt suggested that the approximately $1 million cost of the property at the corner of Pleasant and Stanwood streets is too much and that the council and the Police Station Building Committee should have more strongly considered purchasing property at Brunswick Landing. “As I have said many times, the Police Department deserves a better workplace,” Klatt said. “I do not question the current police station is inadequate. But we are now looking at a project that will cost nearly $7 million in total, and have wasted many millions in other building purchases.” Klatt suggested that the new police station proposal be put to a referendum, a position

Brunswick Rep. Cornell du Houx ends re-election bid By Amber Cronin BRUNSWICK — State Rep. Alex Cornell du Houx has ended his bid for re-election in House District 66 to focus his energies on “continuing his public service with the Navy.” The Brunswick Democrat’s decision was announced a little after 3 p.m. Friday, June 29, by his mother, Ramona du Houx. Index Arts Calendar ................14 Classifieds .....................20 Community Calendar 17-18 Meetings ........................17

Brunswick Democrats will pick a new candidate on July 14. After finishing his current term, Cornell du Houx will report for active duty as a U.S. Navy public affairs officer, providing operational support for U.S. Central Command in the Middle East. “While on active duty, I am prohibited to work in any politi-

cal manner, as members of the military are sworn to protect the Constitution and follow the orders of civilian political leaders,” Cornell du Houx said Sunday. “I won’t be able to be at the Statehouse to properly represent my constituents of District 66.” Cornell du Houx said he originally requested an active duty date that did not coincide

with the next legislative session, but that request was not granted. He said that he could go Cornell du Houx through the process to request another date, but he

wants to serve his constituents in another way. “The events of late have given me time to consider the best way to continue in public service while I move forward with my future,” he said. “I have chosen to take this opportunity to serve my community, state and nation

Bath boat builder launches new rescue craft By Alex Lear BATH — From the grin on U.S. Sen. Susan Collins' face as she sliced the Greenough Advanced Rescue Craft through the waves of the Kennebec River, it was clear the new line of vessels had another fan. "That was so cool," the Maine Republican beamed as she climbed off the 13-foot vessel, launched at Hodgdon Defense Composites' 2 Town Landing Road site, after its christening Tuesday morning. The HDC-built vessel, a cross between a personal water craft and a small boat, is built to maintain extreme stability in breaking surf and rough seas, according to hodgdondefensecomposites.com. It

can hold up to four people and reach a speed of 40 knots, suiting it to searchand-rescue missions on the water. Tested by National Guard officials, the GARC has been certified for use by the military, and can be air-dropped from a C-130 aircraft. "In these challenging times, it is imperative that America's special forces be able to operate effectively, quickly and safely in the most difficult of conditions," Collins said.

Board to consider appeals on Harpswell street lights By Amber Cronin HARPSWELL — The Board of Selectmen tackled a packed agenda on June 28, taking on street lights, pier work at Mitchell Field and an update on progress at the Harpswell Oceanic Center. Street lights have generated discussion since the Energy Committee recommended the removal, addition, or movement of 80 lights in September 2011. The changes, the committee said, would save the town up to $6,000, consume less energy and ensure lights marked things like intersections or dangerous curves. Some residents, however, were concerned about the impact removal of lights would have on neighborhood safety. Selectmen have now come up with a solution that allows the public to have a say in which lights stay and which lights go. “(They) set up a process of how to deal with appeals and they are going to be conducting site visits on July 26 in the evening to go to the specific lights people have appealed,” Town Administrator Kristi Eiane said. Eiane said selectmen are willing to reconsider their original decision on some of the lights, but she doesn't expect a final decision until later this summer, after the site visits have been conducted and appellants have had the chance to make their cases before the board.

The town has notified Central Maine Power Co. that it can remove the lights that have not been appealed, although the delay will reduce the amount of money the town expects to save. “There is definitely going to be a reduction (in our costs),” Eiane said. “But some of our calculations were for the street lights being removed earlier than now and now that that isn't going to happen, I don't think we'll realize as much savings. It will still be several thousand dollars in savings.” Selectmen also heard recommendations and updates about work proposed at Mitchell Field. Atlantic Mechanical was recommended as the company to undertake pier work. The company would be responsible for the removal of gangways and some concrete work on the North Cell. However, according to Eiane, no work can move forward until there is more information about permitting. “We are currently talking with the Department of Environmental Protection and the Army Corps (of Engineers) about what permitting is needed,” she said. “Town staff is looking into what the permitting requirements are to do the work before finalizing (anything).” The board was also updated on the proposed Harpswell Oceanic Center development on the Mitchell Field Property. About a year ago, the center was just a

dream, but with the help negotiator Jack Sylvester, the former town treasurer, it is moving forward with initial plans for an aquaculture, education and research center on the 10.8-acre site. The aquaculture center would essentially be a self-sustaining farm, with fish, worms, oysters and algae harvested and sold commercially. In addition to the aquaculture center, Harpswell Oceanic Center plans to add a visitors center and research facility that will partner with area universities and schools. The proposal to the Selectmen on July 28 said the center hopes to have a lease signed by Dec. 31, and have the necessary permits secured shortly thereafter. Construction of a seawater distribution center will begin nine months after the lease is signed, pending financing and

additional permits. Construction of the aquaculture center would begin by December 2014, or six months after the completion of the seawater distribution center. Eiane said that Sylvester is still working out terms of the lease agreement with the center, and that no decision will be finalized for a while.

Call in the Guard: Maine soldiers build structures at Topsham park By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — The Maine Army National Guard's recent work at Head of Tide Park has been a win-win for all concerned. The 136th Engineer Company, part of the 133rd Engineer Batallion, has built picnic shelters on the park's two land parcels, which surround the head of tide area of the Cathance River. The group has also built a two-unit privy and a kiosk, adding to improvements made at the park

in recent years. Chief Warrant Officer Chris Barnaby, one of the project managers overseeing the construction, said about 30 people were on site daily building the structures, weather permitting. They did much of the work last month and plan to return this summer to complete the rest of it. The soldiers learned essential hands-on building skills: "We can now teach (them) how to do something different," Barnaby said. "We get training, and a not-for-prof-

it organization (the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust) gets free labor. The land trust and town of Topsham provide all the materials, while the soldiers provide the labor; hence the winwin situation. And the benefits continue. "We received a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant to do all of these park amenities," Angela Twitchell, executive director of the land trust, said last week. "And since the labor costs

and construction of the pavilions and the toilets and the kiosk will now be free but can still count as (a) match, we can use those dollars to implement other parts of the (park) master plan, so it's just fabulous." Twitchell praised the concerted effort of the town and land trust to develop "a really great conservation and outdoor recreation amenity in our town. ... It really

Freeport woman arrested after crash leaves 3 people injured By David Harry FREEPORT — A local woman was arrested after an automobile accident June 28 on Durham Road injured her and two others.

(one for causing an injury, the other because of a prior conviction), violating conditions of release and unlawful possession of a scheduled drug. Perrino said Muniak was driving north in a 2002 Mercury Sable on Route 136, known as Durham Road, when she crossed the center line on a slightly curved stretch and struck a 1993 Toyota Corolla driven by Cumberland resident Wayne Ross, 56. Cumberland resident Margaret Smith, 53, was a passenger in the Corolla, Per-

rino said. Muniak’s car struck Ross’ almost head-on as Ross was braking and pulling right to avoid a collision. The impact pushed the Corolla down an embankment, Perrino said. Ross had arm and chest injuries and was flown to Maine Medical Center in Portland after being extricated from the vehicle. Perrino said it took about 45 minutes to remove him from the wreckage. Smith had head injuries and was taken by ambulance to Maine Medical continued page 24

Comment on this story at:

the new millennium, I recall frequently feeling like a prisoner of my own home as I went about my motherly duties. Other parents who have ever been at home with kids full-time surely know what it feels like to do the endless diapering, feeding, dressing, bathing, and entertaining; escaping was nearly impossible most days and taking a shower before 5 p.m. felt like a victory of major proportion. And then, there was also the daily struggle of getting them to stay in their rooms and nap. You’d put the child in their crib or bed or what have you, and 3.5 minutes later, they’d be in the kitchen. Or wherever they weren’t supposed to be. You’d escort them back to their room, and – boom – they’d reappear, scaling safety gates and using Toys R Us gift cards to spring themselves from doors that sometimes required locking. I remember once needing to install a sliding lock and fish-eye viewer in Harold’s bedroom door when he was a toddler, because it was the only way to keep him in confinement while still being able to make certain he was not assembling a nuclear missile. Given this previous behavior, it’s now quite amazing (and amusing) to me that I spend a significant amount of energy on a daily basis, trying to get my children out of their bedrooms. I think Santa may be bringing everyone some nice orange jumpsuits next Christmas.

Take no prisoners My daughter recently got me hooked on an ultrawitty, quirky gem of a TV series called “Arrested Development.” No Sugar We’ve been spending hours every evening watching back-to-back episodes, and the laughter that’s ensued has done more for my abdominal muscles than all of the sit-ups I’ve done in the past six months. At first I pondered why I hadn’t watched this show back when it first aired in 2003. Then I realized I’d spent most of 2003 weeping, but Sandi Amorello still, what a waste of good comedy. Thank goodness for the healing power of time (and Netflix). The patriarch of the family featured in the show is tossed into jail for white-collar corporate crimes early on, and is frequently shown in his orange prisoner jumpsuit having dysfunctional chats with visitors, and hocking a series of enlightenment videos called “Caged Wisdom.” (Just thinking of this makes me laugh. If you enjoy twisted humor, please watch it. You’ll thank me.) Admittedly, the prison theme has tied in nicely with what is currently transpiring within the confines of my own home. My three teenage children may as well be in prison,

only this is self-imposed confinement. I haven’t sequestered them. At any point on any given day, if they are not at a babysitting or dish-washing job, or at a play rehearsal, I know where they are: in their rooms, under lock and key. I knock on my 16-year-old’s door, awaiting a reply. Of course, with him, it’s usually total silence and I need to put a stethoscope to the door if I want to know whether he’s still breathing. If only we didn’t live in an old house with solid wood doors, parental spying would be much easier. It’s not that I don’t trust what he’s doing in there; I just feel it’s my duty to see if he’s ever coming out for food. His silence lasts until approximately midnight, which is when he begins mixing what I’ll loosely refer to as “music” on his computer. This is also when I consider purchasing earplugs. I once didn’t see him for 24 hours, and felt all warm and fuzzy upon discovering his laundry going through the spin cycle in our washing machine, and knowing he was still alive. My daughter is just as bad, if not worse, having already spent one full year in a college dormitory. It is my belief that she never went to sleep before 4 a.m and frequently didn’t leave her room at all, except for the occasional Pepperoni Hot Pocket. But having your child exhibit such behavior when 120 miles away is much different that having her do it while residing down the hallway. For most of the 1990s and into the first decade of

Optimism reigns in woods of Maine Last week, while Syrian President Bashar Assad explicitly declared war on his own people, I attended the opening, flag-raising ceremony for the 20th season of Seeds of Peace. Seeds of Peace is a charitable organization started by author and journalist John Wallach in 1993. Its purpose is to promote lasting peace to regions in conflict. One of the ways it does so is by bringing teenagers from war-torn countries around the world to a camp on a lake in Maine. This season it brought 210 of them, in delegations from Afghanistan, Egypt, India, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, Palestine and the U.S. The delegates are chosen by their home country. The only requirement is that they be proficient in English. For three weeks, these Short teenagers participate in normal summer camp activities like swimming, hiking, and canoeing. They also engage in facilitated dialogues that aspire to expose misconceptions, if not build understanding. The ground rules include that the participants have to listen, have to be respectful of one another, and can only rely upon what they know from their own personal experiences. As I understand it, Halsey Frank the premise is that the way to break the cycle of violence is to get to the new generation before prejudice takes hold. To date, the program has produced about 5,000 Seeds alumni, residing around the world. I arrived just as the flag-raising ceremony was beginning. Camp Director Leslie Lewin welcomed the group. Associate Director Will Smith quoted tennis champion, civil rights activist and AIDS activist Arthur Ashe, who, when asked what an average person could do to solve a problem like Apartheid in South Africa, said, start where you are, use what you have, do what you can. Seeds alumni spoke as representatives for each of the delegations. Several emphasized the rarity of the opportunity and urged their fellow Seeds not to hold back at the risk of regretting, but rather to commit themselves wholeheartedly to the endeavor and make the most of it. The Egyptian rep quoted Steve Jobs about how you have to be crazy to change the world. The Maine rep talked about being ready when opportunity presents itself. Some referred to their traditional adversaries as “the other side.” The Palestinian rep was the most aggrieved. She was resentful of living under Israeli occupation. The Pakistani rep was the most upbeat. She related how she experienced the principles of Seeds of Peace in real life: When Pakistan suffered terrible flooding, it was the Indian friends she made at Seeds of Peace who were most concerned and solicitous. The American rep recalled participating in a team-

How to make strawberry jam My lovely wife Carolyn makes the world’s best strawberry jam. I’m sure she learned it from her mother, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she were born knowing how to make jam. It just seems to come so naturally to The Universal her. I loved watching her make it when she was a college girl in her 20s, and I love helping her make it now that she is a busy professional woman and grandmother. In recent years, with our daughters all grown and out of the house and Carolyn busy at work, the task of picking the strawberries has increasingly fallen to Edgar Allen Beem me, an under-employed writer with time (and berry stains) on his hands. I pick at Maxwell’s in Cape Elizabeth or Gillespie’s in New Gloucester, sometimes both. This year, alerted by Carolyn that “the strawberries are peaking,” I dashed out to Cape and, on my hands and knees, picked a 13-pound flat of dark, ripe berries that cost me $31. That evening, despite a long day at work and several hours of reluctant new car shopping, Carolyn tied on her apron around 8:30 and set about making jam for the year. Having retrieved the jam jars from the basement and purchased the Sure-Jell premium fruit pectin, sugar, and new jar lids earlier in the day, my job was to hull, halve and squash the berries. Carolyn boiled the glass jars to sterilize them, measured out berries, sugar and pectin, and cooked the sweet, fragrant mixture, adding

building exercise where she was in a canoe, in the middle of the lake, with a blindfolded Israeli, a Palestinian, and one paddle. The task was to get to shore. The situation became so antagonistic that they capsized the canoe – and had to laugh at the absurdity of the situation they had created. After each rep spoke, their delegation sang their country’s anthem and raised their county’s flag. The two loudest renditions were of the Palestinian anthem and The Star-Spangled Banner. Former camp Director Tim Wilson recalled how he answered the call and was pressed into service to be the camp’s

a pat of butter to keep the foam down. The part I like best is watching Carolyn ladle and pour the hot jam into jars, carefully topping up each, placing the lids and rings on top, and wiping down the burning, sticky hot jars with a wet paper towel. There is a level of attention and concentration about this step that takes her out of herself, this selfless being earnestly making jam to make me happy. She then sets the jars upside down on a newspaper on the counter so the tops will seal, checking the tops occasionally to see if they are ready. My first taste of the new jam is from Carolyn’s finger, but there is always about half a jar extra that does not get sealed. By the time I help clean up, the extra jam has cooled enough to be spread on a toasted English muffin and then a plain donut to be lovingly consumed as a bedtime snack. Carolyn remembers when her grandmother made jam, baked bread and churned butter on the family farm in Freeport. As recently as the early 1960s, her grandparents grew much of their own food and kept a cow for milk. As 21st century suburbanites, strawberry jam is one of few foods (pesto being another) that we put up for ourselves. It doesn’t just taste good, it feels good. The new jars of jam get stored away on the top shelf of a kitchen cupboard and along about February I start worrying that we’re not going to make, that we are going to run out before the new crop is ready. Somehow, however, Carolyn’s timing is usually perfect. This year I used the last of the 2011 jam just a week before she made the 2012 jam. Now, thanks to my delicious wife, I can once again look forward to the sweet taste of summer in the depths of winter. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

first director. He reminded the campers of the principles of communication, respect and honesty, and exhorted them to shed the trappings of their cultures and societies to be the best human beings they could be. At the end of the ceremony, the group sang the Seeds of Peace song, with its verses about learning from the past, tearing down walls, building bridges and friendships. Afterward, the Seeds headed off to the day’s activities. I left with a sense of optimism about the future.

Out & About

Musicals that morphed from movies By Scott Andrews The majority of new Broadway musicals in recent years have been stage adaptations of successful movies. That’s the case with the two most recent musicals to open in southern Maine. Omigod, America’s archetypal Valley Girl, Elle Woods, is like totally morphing from fashion butterfly to legal eagle. That’s the story of “Legally Blonde,” currently running at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick. It’s Christmas and it’s snowing. At least that’s what’s happening in Arundel Barn Playhouse, which is running “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas.” There’s hardly a day when something isn’t happening at the Bowdoin International Music Festival. This year’s overarching theme is Johann Sebastian Bach, and his music is featured on the next two major concerts.

‘Legally Blonde’ An air-headed blonde morphs into a brilliant lawyer. Plus she’s in love with the wrong guy. Add a laughable love story. Plus two laughable dogs. Those are the key elements of “Legally Blonde,” a wonderfully funny and entertaining show that is running at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick. This 2007 Broadway hit has a score by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin with a book by Heather Hach. It is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and also on the 2001 MGM film that starred Reese Witherspoon. The principal character is Elle Woods, a divinely blonde, sensationally curvaceous girl with a flair for making loud style statements in screaming baby pink. She is introduced as a college senior majoring

Elle Woods, her dog Bruiser and lawyer Emmet Forrest are three of the central characters in “Legally Blonde: The Musical,” which runs through July 14 at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick. The actors are Alex Ellis, left, Chico and Chuck Ragsdale.

in fashion marketing at the University of Southern California, where she’s also the president of the Delta Nu sorority. Elle’s in love with a stuck-up beau who is headed to Harvard Law School to begin a career in politics. On a date, Elle expects a marriage proposal. Instead she gets dumped, as her guy tells her that he needs someone who is more “serious.” Resolving to prove her worthiness to be his wife, Elle follows him to Harvard Law,

where she quickly gets put down by the snobbish students and egotistical professors at that august institution of legal learning. The only friend she makes is a lovelorn hairdresser. But tables turn when Elle assists her criminal law professor in a sensational murder trial, helping to defend a TV exercise maven who has been falsely accused of shooting her husband. The prosecution has an airtight case until Elle unravels it through insightful research and brilliant cross-examination – and the real murderess is revealed in court. All the while, Elle discovers the true nature of her beloved: He’s a money-grubbing lawyer who sells out his principles. Plus she discovers her own reservoirs of inner strength, while the audience discovers that Elle’s naive, girlish moral code is far superior to what’s practiced at Harvard Law. She even discovers the right guy for her new self. MSMT director Marc Robin has assembled a wonderful, fully professional cast. Tops is Alex Ellis as the perfect Elle, the show’s dominating figure from opening curtain to denouement. Along her journey of self-discovery, this fashionista learns that being true to one’s own values never goes out of style. Charis Leos, a longtime MSMT favorite, draws plenty of laughs in the top character role, a hairdresser who seeks to recover her beloved dog from her ex-boyfriend. Maine State Music Theatre presents “Legally Blonde: The Musical” through July 14 at Pickard Theater on the Bowdoin College campus in Brunswick. Call 725-8769 or visit www.msmt.org.

Never mind the calendar and ignore the thermometer: It’s Christmas and it’s snowing at the Arundel Barn Playhouse. Christmas in summertime? That’s the theme for the next couple of weeks at the historic 1880 Smith Farm barn that was converted into a summer theater 15 years ago. The current offering is “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas,” a happy and tuneful

musical that is mostly set in a barn in rural Vermont. The 2008 musical is a reasonably faithful stage adaptation of the celebrated 1954 Paramount Pictures film of the same name that starred Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. The stage script is very faithful to the original screenplay. Only a few details have been changed, mostly to simplify technical requirements. The story opens during World War II as two Army buddies perform a 1944 Christmas Eve show for their fellow troops. The script quickly segues to New York in 1954, where the two wartime pals have become a highly successful nightclub act. In New York the two men meet two sisters who are just breaking into show business. The sisters are booked to perform for the Christmas holidays at an old inn in Vermont. Romance and many complications follow, compounded by the fact that the inn is owned by the aging Army general who once commanded the men. Per usual operating procedure, Artistic Director Adrienne Grant has hired a young professional cast, mostly students or recent graduates of collegiate musical theater programs. The four principals offer pleasant interpretations of their roles, beginning with Anthony Alfaro and Fjaere Harder as the primary romantic pairing. Their romance is slow and strewn with obstacles – mostly of their own making. Nate Richardson and Emily Watson comprise the secondary couple.

fervescent romance provides the needed comic leavening to the story line. Arundel Barn Playhouse, 53 Old Post Road (just off Route 1) presents “White Christmas” through July 14. Call 985-5552 or visit www.arundelbarnplayhouse.com.

Bowdoin International Music Festival

Who was history’s greatest classical composer? Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Sebastian Bach are among the names often promoted as the best of the best. For the over-arching theme of the 2012 Bowdoin International Music Festival, founding artistic director Lewis Kaplan has chosen to highlight the music of Bach, who practiced his craft in Germany between 1700 and 1750. The festival’s next two major concerts include works by Bach. On the July 6 Festival Friday concert, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 will be played with oboist Liang Wang as the featured performer. Also on the program will be another celebrated work, Franz Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden,” performed by the Ying Quartet. On the July 9 Monday Sonatas series, Bach’s Sonata No. 2 for Violin and Harpsichord will be played, with keyboard artist Laura Lutzke as the featured musician. Sonatas by Beethoven and Schubert are also slated. Bowdoin International Music Festival concerts are held at Crooker Auditorium at Brunswick High School (Fridays) and Studzinski Recital Hall on the Bowdoin College campus (most other concerts). Visit www.bowdoinfestival.org for the myriad details.

laughing. After growing up in Wiscasset and graduating from its high school, Grover started work at BIW in 1952 as a pipecoverer, a position he has held for almost all his time at the shipyard. The U.S.S. Mitscher, the first ship on which he worked, was delivered to the U.S. Navy in 1953; Grover figures he has worked on a total of 100 vessels. The U.S. was at war with North Korea for two years when Grover started at BIW, and in 1953 he left the shipyard to join the U.S. Army. Although he anticipated being sent overseas, the war came to an end as he completed basic training, and he spent the rest of his enlistment in Oklahoma before returning to BIW. Grover has witnessed significant expansion at the shipyard. Once, “you could almost throw a rock across it,” he said, but now it could take a half hour to walk around the place. The materials he has used to cover pipes has changed, for the better. Gone are the days of asbestos, replace by woven glass. Grover’s wife of 56 years, Shirley, was among those with him in the Heritage

supported by Town Councilor Benet Pols. Pols said that although the Police Station Building Committee’s proposal was unanimously accepted, he expects there to be some conversation Monday about the possibility of a referendum. “When we initially went to bond the money to buy the land, citizens objected and petitioned to get it on the referendum and that was only the land package,” he said. “Unless they were worn down by the sheer grind of the process, I imagine some people will be interested (in putting it on the ballot) again.” After a public hearing on Monday night, the council will vote on the possibility of bonding $5.5 million. The balance would come from the money the town appropriated from “other road projects” in its 2012-2013 fiscal budget.

Collins' office, HDC won a contract last December to build five GARCs for the Air Force Special Operations Command. Rapid Response Technology of Wilmington, N.C., was the designer.

Days parade. They raised eight children, and now have 21 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. The key to bringing up so many kids? “Work,” Grover said simply. “I’m very fortunate that I had a job in here. We struggled at times, but we got by.” Grover rode in the parade’s lead car on Wednesday, driven by former BIW President William Haggett. “I played baseball with Bill in 1949,” Grover said. “I came over here to play on the Junior Legion baseball team. And we were champion; I might throw that in.” Grover said he fondly remembers Haggett’s father, who also worked at the shipyard, and his first foreman was Haggett’s uncle. As for when or if he will retire, Grover said with a laugh, “I’m taking it one day at a time, and see if the decision is mine or God’s. He might want to take me before I make up my mind. And if he does, I’m not gonna worry about it.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear @theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @learics.

"The announcement just last Friday that the Air National Guard is purchasing 16 additional GARCs is wonderful news," Collins said. Company owner Tim Hodgdon said that while the vessel launched Wednesday was HDC's fourth, its affiliated parent company, Hodgdon Shipbuilding, has a history going back nearly 200 years and has launched more than 400 vessels. Hodgdon signed a lease for the cityowned waterfront facility last December

Crash from page 5 Center, Perrino said. A spokesman at Maine Medical Center on June 29 said Ross and Smith were in satisfactory condition. Muniak had leg injuries and was taken to Parkview Hospital in Brunswick. She was released about six hours later and arrested by Freeport police, who took her to Cumberland County Jail in Portland. A clerk at the jail said Muniak was released Friday morning. Cumberland County Assistant District Attorney Michael Madigan said his office decided not to pursue charges last week while the accident remains under investigation by Freeport police. David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @DavidHarry8.

Cornell du Houx from page 1 by progressing my career in the Navy.” The decision comes after a long couple of months for the 28-year-old, two-term legislator.

In May he faced an investigation by the Maine State Police because of stalking claims made by his ex-fiance, Rep. Erin Herbig, D-Belfast. The police investigation into the claims ended on May 11; on May 14, Herbig withdrew her request in Belfast District Court for an order of protection from abuse against Cornell du Houx. But their dispute led Maine State Democratic Party Chairman Ben Grant to suggest du Houx should end his campaign. Grant said on Friday that he is glad that Cornell du Houx has decided to do what he has been telling people in the party he would do. “I think the important thing for the party is that now we are able to move forward to do the work to find a good candidate for that district to replace Alex,” Grant said. “I just think it’s good for everyone that we’re going to be able to move on from that episode.” Andy Cashman, chairman of the Brunswick Democratic Town Committee, said the committee will caucus at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, at Curtis Memorial Library to fill the vacancy on the November ballot. Members of the committee who live in District 66 will be the only ones allowed to vote in the caucus. “The Brunswick Democratic Town Committee deeply appreciates (Cornell du Houx’s) service to the people of Brunwick and to the state and to his country,”

“Your Pet is Our Priority”

Cashman said. “Given his decision, we’re going to be focused on helping to identify a candidate from District 66 that will provide the voters in that district with the best choice for November.” Cashman said that no one has come forward as of yet to declare their desire to run. Cornell du Houx did not rule out the possiblity of running for office again. “I am looking forward to serving my community, state and nation as an officer in the Navy,” he said. “I wish to thank the people of Brunswick for your support. It has truly been an honor to serve you. I hope you will give me another opportunty to represent you in Augusta in the future.”

LeDuc also called the relationship with the National Guard “wonderful.”

The bulk of the present Head of Tide property, which once housed a feldspar mill and later two apartment buildings and a 4,000-gallon overboard discharge system, went on the market in late 2007. Local groups worked to secure that property for conservation, and Topsham Development served as a bridge owner, holding the parcel until the funds could be raised for the town to acquire it.

The land trust later purchased the adjoining Cutler property and donated it to the town, bringing the park to its current size of more than five acres. The land trust will ultimately have an easement on the property, to ensure its continued conservation and management as a park.

Soldiers from page 4

The education alliance, which had inherited income from the property’s sale, donated those funds toward the park project, Twitchell said.

would never have happened if the land trust was doing it alone, or the town was doing it alone.” Pam LeDuc, Topsham’s Parks and Recreation director, has worked closely with Twitchell to bring the park to life. She noted her appreciation for the entire

community’s involvement in that endeavor; not just the land trust but also the Cathance River Education Alliance, the Topsham Public Works Department, and various of local contractors “who stepped up to make the process happen.”
