Down in the dumps

Brunswick landfill has history of ongoing environmental violations

Emily Guerin / The Forecaster

Two of the three lagoons at the Graham Road landfill in Brunswick hold 700,000 and 400,000 gallons of leachate, respectively. The smaller lagoon drains into the Androscoggin River.

By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — The steady stream of brown water that runs out of a lagoon at the town’s Graham Road landfill disappears quickly into the Androscoggin River. The flow is no bigger than a kitchen faucet that has been left on. But this tiny trickle of leach-

ate, or waste water that has seeped through the landfill or run off the surface, has consistently caused problems for the dump. Operators have struggled for years to properly monitor what’s in the water and keep pollutants under the legal limit. What’s more, the landfill’s

waste water discharge permit expired two years ago, and the dump has operated without one ever since. Now the Maine Department of Environmental Protection is taking enforcement action, with the hope of resolving the continuing permit violations. But the biggest problem of

Bath city planner to retire in September

Neighbors concerned about condition of burned building By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Residents are urging the town to improve its fire inspection program, and to make the owner of a recently burned building clean it up or tear it down. Neighbors are concerned that the apartment building at 16-18 Oak St. still looks the same as it did following a destructive fire in April. Town officials say there is little they can do to pressure the owner to rebuild. However, they are trying to prevent fires like this one from happening in the future by considering how to better

Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Emerson has requested an additional inspector for the past five years, but the request has never made it past the first draft of the town budget. But a recent series of fires has brought attention to the issue. In February, one person died and 17 people were left

By Alex Lear BATH — Jim Upham, the city’s planning director for 15 years, announced Monday that he will retire Sept. 30. Among other things during Upham’s tenure, Front Street was named one of the American Planning Association’s 10 “Great Streets of 2009.” The association lauded the “longstanding commitment of city leaders, merchants and residents to protect the street’s historic and maritime character as well as its economic vitality.” “It’s nothing that I did,” Upham said on Tuesday. “The city as a whole has done a great job.” City Manager Bill Giroux See page 24

Legion gives unofficial Topsham war memorial a permanent home By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — A privately maintained war memorial has a new home after the Board of Selectmen unanimously supported moving the commemorative site from town property on Route 196 to the local American Legion post. Gordon Kinney of Tedford Road

created the memorial on what was then state property, without permission from the state or town. The land was part of 21 acres off the Coastal Connector that the state turned over to the town at no charge. The memorial consists of more than 100 black wooden silhouettes of battle crosses, the burial markers tradition-

ally created using a fallen soldier’s helmet, dog tags, rifle and boots, Kinney said. Kinney, a former U.S. Army paratrooper, said Tuesday that he erected the memorial at least four years ago as a means of bringing attention to the soldiers dying in Iraq and Afghanistan. Each silhouette has the name, rank

and date of death of soldiers from New England. So far Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island are represented. “The thing’s always growing until we end this conflict,” he said. Kinney said he chose the heavily See page 24

King of the road New book chronicles transition from governor of Maine to just another guy driving an RV By Emily Guerin BATH — If former Gov. Angus King is somewhat of a Maine legend, then his new book is quite literally his “Odyssey.” “A Governor’s Travels” chronicles the Brunswick resident’s nearly six-month journey across the country in a 40-foot RV with his wife Mary Herman and two of their children. But it also is an account of how King managed the transition from being a public servant to just another member of the public, or as he puts it, from being “the Man” to “simply a man.” He also offers advice to others who are

passing from public office or employment to retirement. After serving two terms as governor, King left office in 2003 and began his road trip the very next day. After years of constantly being in the spotlight and adhering to a tight schedule, King and his family decided to do the opposite on their trip. They had no itinerary and no Maine State Police escort. Instead, they became like everyone else they met on the road: free-wheeling, anonymous Americans, living out a lifelong dream. In an interview near his vacation home in Georgetown, King recalled one of his first brushes with anonymity. While hiking in the Grand Canyon, King started chatting with another hiker who asked where he was from. “Maine,” King said. “Oh,” the hiker exclaimed, “I

Topsham Public Library: 80 years of literary legacy By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — Although the Topsham Public Library building is just seven years old, it’s been 80 years since the institution was born. The library, now at 25 Foreside Road, presented a long-range plan for the next three years to the Board of Selectmen on July 7. Topsham’s library history goes back to 1803, with the founding of the Social Library of Topsham, which operated for at least 30 years, according to a booklet commemorating the town’s 200th anniversary in 1964. The Topsham Public Library was born the next century, the result of a nearly 10year effort by the Village Improvement Association to raise money, obtain books and find a usable building. That library opened in the second floor of the old Androscoggin Engine House on Main Street in February 1931 with 1,500 books. Ten years later, thanks to Sarah Whitten’s bequeath of her 1838 family home to the town, the library moved to Pleasant Street under the new name of the Whitten Memorial Library. By 1964 the library possessed nearly 11,000 books. A long-range plan determined in 1998 that Topsham’s increasing population had outgrown the 1,000-square-foot library, and the institution moved in 2000 to space leased by School Administrative District 75 at the Topsham Navy Annex. The library’s current 11-acre property was found the following year, and in 2002 the town approved a $1.5 million bond to build a new library. An additional $1 million for the project came through fundraising. Ground was broken in 2003, and the 13,000-square-foot Topsham Public Li-

brary opened in May 2004. The building now contains nearly 40,000 books. It has a meeting room, an art gallery, gardens, and a set of computer terminals to allow patrons to access the Internet. The library offers a Books on Wheels service to those who cannot get to the library and a job information center, along with several book discussion groups and special events for children. “All this is ... trying to reach people where they have a need,” library Director Susan Preece said last week, “and (to) be a community center for all ages, which is what is in our mission.” The library also offers high-speed wireless Internet access, which some patrons use from their cars in the parking lot when the library is closed. The library is riding the wave of technology that has seen the card catalog become a thing of the past and the Internet become a prime research tool, while the electronic book is challenging the endurance of the print version. “Any time a new technology comes in, continued page 23

Planning Board says no to radio tower on Pleasant Hill Road By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — The Planning Board has derailed a local radio station’s latest attempt to bring back community radio. First Wave Media, the name of the group that operates WMCE 900 AM, petitioned the board on Tuesday for a zoning change that would allow construction of a 199-foot AM radio tower at 400 Pleasant Hill Road, near the intersection of Casco and Church roads. In December, the board tabled a decision on First Wave’s request to construct the tower on Old Portland Road. Since then, an attorney for the group said negotiations for a lease there have fallen through, forcing them to look at the Pleasant Hill Road property. The group was requesting an expansion of the Telecommunications Overlay Zone

2 and an amendment to the zoning that would allow them to construct a 199-foot tower with guy wires. The current TCZ2 language only allows a monopole style tower. The radio signal would broadcast at 1000 watts during the day, and would cover a 10- to 12-mile radius. At night it would drop to 55 watts and only four miles. But the board unanimously decided not to set a public hearing on the request, ending its involvement with the project. The applicant can still submit a proposal to the Town Council. Nine residents of the Pleasant Hill Road area spoke against the tower, citing

Public hearing ahead on Longfellow School rezoning BRUNSWICK — The proposed rezoning of the Longfellow School is heading to a public hearing after several meetings between neighbors, Bowdoin College and town officials, and two Planning Board workshops. But there is still some disagreement over housing density on the site. The proposed College Use 7 zone currently allows 10 units per acre, down from the 12 included in an earlier proposal. But Longfellow Avenue resident Connie Lundquist said she was still concerned about the impact of that density on the neighborhood, and encouraged the Planning Board to reduce it even further. In addition to non-student housing, CU7 would allow several college uses, including a theater, recreation facility, offices, art studios, greenhouse and concerns about its visual impact. John O’Connell, of Otter Trace, said “this will ruin the scenic view, the sense of place you get in that particular area.” He also questioned the need for an AM radio station. “Who listens to AM radio anymore? It’s unnecessary,” he said. Brook Stoddard, of Bunganuc Road, and Steve Bernake, of Otter Trace, em-

religious center, among others. Complicating the rezoning discussion is the fact that the college has not committed to a particular future use of the building. When asked on Tuesday about what is planned for the Longfellow School, Caty Longley, Bowdoin’s senior vice president for finance and administration and treasurer, introduced three possible uses: visual arts space, administrative offices, and faculty housing. But she added that the college hasn’t decided whether it will tear down the school or renovate it, and promised to work with neighbors before submitting a building plan. The public hearing on the Longfellow rezoning is scheduled for July 26 at 7 p.m. — Emily Guerin

phasized the value of the Pleasant Hill Road area to the rest of town. “It’s a truly special area,” Bernake said, arguing that the tower would be detrimental to the entire community if it were constructed. Residents also questioned whether there is a better location for the tower, but Andy Cashman, the group’s lawyer, explained that First Wave had already spent a year trying to find an appropriate spot. He said there are many limitations imposed by the Federal Communications Commission, including that the site must be at least six acres and be within four miles of the center of Brunswick. In addition, Cashman said First Wave tried to choose a flat site in a sparsely populated area that did not contain wetlands, power lines, forests or rocky ledges. But board members balked at the idea of erecting the tower and questioned whether all other options had been exhausted. “I’m struggling to be convinced that continued page 22 Connecting Neighbors • Enriching Lives

Harpswell hopes to clarify property line at Hildreth Road landing By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — In light of continuing access disputes at Hildreth Road Landing, the town is proposing to clarify the boundary between the public and private sections of a beach on Harpswell Sound. Margaret McMahon Hickey owns part of a gravelly beach shared by the town, and has objected to shellfish harvesters and boaters who park their trucks on her

property. Many of those who use the landing had also complained to town staff that McMahon is preventing public access to the water. Town Administrator Kristi Eiane and Deputy Town Administrator Terri Sawyer met with McMahon at her property on July 1 to discuss possible solutions. In a letter to McMahon following the meeting, they proposed that the town

Bath man drowns after fishing accident

BRUNSWICK — A 38-year old Bath man drowned in the Androscoggin River on July 10 after a fishing accident. According to Deputy Police Chief Marc Hagan, William Clark was fishing with his girlfriend on a sandbar near Baybridge Landing around 3 p.m. After receiving a tug on his pole, he stepped into the water on the far side of the sand bar. The water on that side is very deep, and he was immediately in over his head. Clark’s girlfriend reportedly attempted

to rescue him, but she was pulled in, too. According to Hagan, the woman said the current was very strong and they were unable to make it back to the sandbar. A passing kayaker saw the woman struggling in the water and was able to tow her to shore, but Clark could not be found. The kayaker called 911 and rescue personnel from 11 departments responded. Divers from the Maine State Police Dive Team found Clark’s body at 6:55 p.m. approximately 30 feet from the sandbar.

have a series of boulders placed at sixfoot intervals along the property line all the way to the water to prevent vehicles from crossing onto McMahon’s property. They also proposed filling in a pothole at the bottom of Gravel Pit Road, improving the small parking area higher up on the road, and installing better signs indicating where parking is allowed and prohibited. Eiane said she believes the town’s portion of the gravel beach is still big enough for vehicles to access the water, even with the line of boulders in place.

“It probably won’t be as useful without (McMahon’s property) included, but I do believe it will still be useful,” she said. The town owns a wide right-of-way along Hildreth Road, and Eiane said she encouraged people to park their vehicles there. In an email, McMahon said on Wednesday that she would only comment after speaking with her attorney. Town staff are still waiting to hear back from McMahon with regards to the proposal.

Freeport farmers find their niche with the ‘veggie boat’ By Emily Guerin CHEBEAGUE ISLAND — It’s 11 o’clock on a Saturday morning in July, and already a line has formed next to a teal and white boat docked at the Chebeague Island Boat Yard. A red and blue “OPEN” flag flutters on the boat’s stern, and a white tent shades coolers and boxes full of lettuce, tomatoes, bacon and broccoli. On the dock, Chebeague residents and visitors chat and try to catch the attention of Warren and Ursula Wilmot, or Olivia LeMaistre, who hurry back and forth between the produce and the cash box. The farmers grow most of what’s on the boat in Freeport at Mitchell Ledge Farm, which is known for its herd of Belted Galloway’s, or “Oreo” cows. Instead of having a table at a terrestrial farmer’s market, the three farmers decided to rename themselves “Lettuce by Land, Carrots by Sea,” and sail their produce to Chebeague and Bustin’s islands in Casco Bay. And based on the crowd that gathers

nearly every week, they seem to have made the right decision. “It’s hoppin’,” remarked Virginia Gaskins, who arrived early with her mother, Susan, to snatch up bacon, cabbage, cheese and chard. On Fourth of July weekend the veggie boat was cleaned out less than an hour after arriving, so Gaskins said she arrived early this time. She thinks the boat’s success is partially due to the fact that there aren’t a lot of places to buy local, organic produce on Chebeague. “You have to go to the mainland for (that),” she said. Susan Stranahan, who picked up some garlic scapes, tomatoes and bacon, agreed. “You either do without, or go to the mainland,” she said of the way it used to be. But now, every Saturday morning during the summer, the produce comes to her. Stranahan also attributed the floating farmer’s market’s success to the crowd it draws. “It’s a social event,” she said. The Saturday morning hustle and bustle has also been beneficial for Vicki Todd, who

manages The Niblic, a cafe, market and gift shop at the Chebeague Island Boat Yard. She said when the farmers called her up last year and asked if they could dock at the boat yard, she was immediately interested.

Veggie boat customers walk right past her shop on the way down to the dock, and many stop in for a coffee on the way. “It’s mutually beneficial,” she said. After about an hour, the crowd dies down and the farmers relax a little. The strawberries are long gone, as are the sticky buns and baguettes supplied by Standard Baking Co. in Portland. A few bunches of radishes, scapes and bouquets of flowers remain. Warren Wilmot, 29, runs up to the Niblic to buy a pint of chowder, and LeMaistre, 31, packs the remaining veggies back into their coolers. Ursula Wilmot, 29, crawls under the tarp at the front of the boat to check on her sleeping infant son. All three grew up in Freeport. Ursula Wilmot and LeMaistre are sisters whose parents run the cattle operation at Mitchell Ledge Farm. They had always toyed with the idea of taking over the farm, but didn’t want to concentrate on cattle. With Warren, Ursula’s husband, they decided to start a small vegetable farm and offer a few produce shares to community members. But they weren’t convinced they could continued page 23

Stop me before I increase government, again Both my children are physically active. In addition to a soccer-playing son, I have a lacrosse-playing daughter. As I imagine most parents do, I want the best for both. While Short my wife tends to emphasize academics, I tend to focus on sports. I believe that sports are an important part of a wellrounded education. Call it a gender-linked bias, but a report commissioned by the Portland Public Schools found that the grade point average of students who participate in athletics is 8.825 percent higher than those who do not. Halsey Frank Last month, I attended the


Portland High School girls’ lacrosse team banquet. Team parents put on a generous potluck dinner to celebrate their children’s athletic accomplishments. Coaches honored players with awards and anecdotes and tokens of esteem. The whole event was characterized by a spirit of camaraderie. At the end of the evening, we were summarily informed that the superintendent of schools had decided to abolish the current, team-specific booster system. It was a bit of a downer. These booster organizations are made up of parents of players. Boosters support their children’s sports in various ways, including by raising money. For the 2009-2010 season, boosters at Deering and Portland high schools raised a total of about $174,000. In recent years, boosters have filled the gap when the school budget was in crisis and spending for athletics was being cut before other programs. We were members of the girls lacrosse booster organization. During the season, we were peppered with emails

At dinner, we were told that in the future, there would be an umbrella organization. The plan is detailed in several documents, including 10 pages of proposed bylaws. It provides for the creation of a foundation to be in charge of fundraising, with the goal of reaching $400,000 in giving by fiscal year 2015. The money that the foundation raises will be pooled and divided up by a board.

The view from away looks good from here

Just another day at the office “Thank you for choosing Tim Horton’s today, my name is Amy, how can I help you?” Amy touches her headset and flashes me that smile that says, “I may have to take this drive-through order first, but I’d rather be waiting on you.” It goes with the tone of voice she’s using for the drive-through customer, the voice that says, “I don’t care if there are 10 people at the counter. Your coffee The View and donut come first.” My understanding nod says, “Do what you have to do.” I’m a writer; she’s a shift supervisor, two professionals sharing a moment. Just another day at the office.

From Away

If I had a job, I’d have a real office. Writers don’t have jobs. We have careers: long periods of existential despair punctuated by occasional checks. I can only stare into the abyss of a Mike Langworthy blank page in silence or surrounded by white noise. I have neither in my house. The Glickman Library on USM’s Portland campus worked for silence until somebody hijacked my network password and got me suspended. Not even for downloading porn. Video games. How humiliating is that? But when one door closes, another one opens; in this case, the door to the Tim Horton’s “over by Shaw’s” (there must be 20 Shaw’s around here, but say “over by Shaw’s,” Portlanders will know which one you’re talking about. Paging Stephen King.). It was new, attractive, free wi-fi, accessible outlet, doughnuts that tasted like love and Muzak that skewed heavily to ‘90s dance party: white noise. Hello, Tim Horton’s. Daddy’s home. Because this is Portland, I was on a first-name basis with the owner in days. Carol inspired me with her energy and an engaging mixture of apprehension and excitement about the business. She even gave me cognitive whiplash one day by pulling into the lot on a Harley, wearing full riding leathers. The service is great, and the atmosphere behind the counter is a little like the kids’ table on Thanksgiving. They seem to enjoy each other and they seem to “get

me.” When I demand out of the blue, “Maybe I do want a doughnut; is that so wrong?” Shannon flashes her million-dollar smile and rolls with it. When I deadpan repeatedly, “Hey, Joe, where you goin’ with that gun in your hand?,” because if an ancient musical reference is kind of funny once, the same one a million times must be hilarious, Joe rolls with it. I’ve learned snippets about them in between refills – the Mount Holyoke grad who is saving up for her master’s, the graffiti artist who showed me some amazing examples, the guy who looks like he’s always between band practices. One of my favorites is in almost ecstatically in recovery – I’m not sure from what – and is just happy to be there, or anywhere. Collectively, they say a lot about America in the new millennium. I’m more than a regular. Regulars are at the place; I am of the place. Even the people who are there every day, the African cabbies or the native Mainers who drive cherry-pickers, have a cruller, solve the world’s problems for a few minutes and head off to work. When I’m there, I am at work. That makes the regulars fodder, if only for my macabre imagination. Like the woman who comes in often, carrying the same tightly wrapped parcel. She seems perfectly nice. The package doesn’t really contain her dead husband’s embalmed head (probably). For a while, an almost-but-not-quite-handsome man (he looked like Viggo Mortensen pulled from the oven an hour early; I called him Viggo Lite) tried to usurp my position. I knew they’d never let two people monopolize tables for hours at a time, and he was just some loser staring at his laptop. I was an author. Staring at his laptop. I had to hope Carol would appreciate that distinction. One day, he disappeared as suddenly as he had appeared, broken, no doubt, by my superior skill at inactivity. Occasionally, I regret never talking to the regulars, like when I watch “Thin Maria Callas As Medea.” I named her for the opera star she resembles, including the bottomless reservoir of pain behind her eyes. You can’t really tell her age, but you sense her life journey has been a long one, and they have not been highway miles. She wields a well-thumbed, heavily noted copy of the AA Blue Book as she counsels a stream of women in various stages of getting their lives back. If AA’s rules didn’t prevent me from intruding, my own rules would. But it’s intriguing to watch this rising angel at work. It’s just one small business. Similar stories are being played out all over the place. But I’m here, and I’m glad. And I hope Carol knows that her one small business is also a community, a 12-step sanctuary and sometimes even a muse.

My first impression of Mike Langworthy was that his wife was very nice. And he was cranky. It was a couple years ago, and our families were having brunch at Caiola’s in Portland’s West End. We were set up by my cousin who lives outside Cincinnati, a childhood Editor’s friend of Mike’s wife, Carol. Besides the family tie, we had other things in common. For starters, both of our families moved to Maine from California. My wife and I immigrated in 1984; Mike and Carol had recently moved after deciding to live closer to the Massachusetts prep school one of their kids would be attending. Law was another common bond. My wife is a journalistMo Mehlsak turned-lawyer; Mike is a lawyer-turned-writer. And true to my cousin’s word, Carol was friendly, engaging, talkative, interesting and amusing. But Mike seemed out of sorts that day at breakfast, distracted and hardly funny. Not what you’d expect from an attorney who lately made his living as a stand-up comic and TV sitcom producer and writer (“Cybill,” “8 Simple Rules” and “The Drew Carey Show,” among others). But there was something about his demeanor and distractedness, the way he would intermittently zero in on the discussion with unusually perceptive comments that also made me want to get to know Mike better. Maybe it was the story behind moving from law to comedy. Or maybe it was the story behind the move from California to Maine, where he planned to get serious about

writing. Either way, Mike seemed quirky, intelligent and blunt enough to be able to offer interesting and coherent observations on almost any topic. So I asked him if he had any desire to write for The Forecaster. He said yes, and promised to send along a sample or two. We had brunch several more times over the next few months, at The Good Egg or Local 188, and each time Mike would promise to show me his work. And each time, there’d be nothing. I stopped asking. When he finally did send something, it was much too long – and it knocked my socks off. It was a travelogue of sorts about the move to Maine, the Langworthy family, first impressions of Portland. It was painful, and painfully funny, written with sarcasm, criticism, insight, love, hate, x-ray vision and a view of Mike’s mind that only he could have. I told him that whenever he was ready, he knew where to find me. After completing a two-year creative nonfiction program at the Stonecoast School for Creative Writing at the University of Southern Maine, he did. Mike’s column, the aptly named “The View from Away,” starts this week. It will run every other week, alternating weeks with Sandi Amorello’s “No Sugar Added.” I think you’ll agree it was worth the wait. Mo Mehlsak is editor of The Forecaster.

Short Relief from page 7 system was inequitable and might run afoul of Title IX. As amended in 1972, the federal law prohibits schools that receive direct or indirect federal financial assistance from discriminating against anyone on the basis of their gender. A 2006 study found that over 29 years between 1977 and 2006, when Title IX was in effect, the number of girls participating in high school sports increased by a factor of 9. The Portland school system’s legal counsel analyzed its sports programs. It found them largely compliant. The programs accommodated students’ interests and abilities. Girls participated in sports at rates slightly less than, but still comparable to, boys. Girls were given similar opportunities to compete. They were treated equally in terms of school-provided equipment, supplies, scheduling of games and practice time, travel budget, coaching, training and medical care, publicity and administrative assistance. There was a discrepancy between the locker rooms and facilities available to boys at Fitzpatrick Stadium versus those available to girls at Payson Park. The major area of concern was the equipment, coaching and incidental benefits provided by boosters. To the extent that information about booster finances was available and reliable, it showed disparities between the support that boys and girls sports received. The disparity was greatest between the 2008-2009 Deering football boosters and the most financially comparable Deering girls’ sport boosters, basketball. The boys football boosters provided about $40,000 worth of support, while the girls basketball boosters provided about $10,000. While acknowledging that boosters’ efforts were private in nature, the lawyer opined that their cumulative disparate impact could violate Title IX’s non-discrimination requirement. It turns out that the superintendent’s decision was not quite the done deal described at the lacrosse banquet. At the June 21 School Committee meeting, the superintendent proposed a consolidation plan and scheduled a couple of public meetings to get feedback. A parent’s devotion to their child is a powerful force. Parents will do more for their own child than for others’ kids. It’s not a gender-based bias. It’s a kinship bias. People favor their own family. That’s not bad. It’s the building block of society. The problem arises when you aggregate individual parents’ acts of devotion. When you step back and look at the larger picture, what started out as a parent’s love for their child begins to look like a pattern of booster organizations favoring boys’ sports over girls’. However, if you combat that favoritism by consolidating and reeling in the booster organizations, then what had

Weight, weight, don’t tell me As I have not until very recently had a weight problem, I’m afraid I have not been very sympathetic toward people who do. Now that I’m up to (wait, wait, let me go weigh myself) 190 pounds, I’m suddenly aware of how easy it is to gain weight and how hard it is to lose. When I quit smoking in January, I weighed 165, so now I’m 25 pounds The Universal overweight. According to most height-weight charts, at 5 feet 11 inches my ideal weight would be 155, but I figured 165 for a sedentary 62-year-old wasn’t too bad. Then came the beer. I don’t think I’d had a glass of beer for 15 years or so until I stopped smoking. Then I managed to replace one bad habit with another. Carolyn thinks Edgar Allen Beem it may be the Hagen Daz Rum Raisin and Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk, but I’m pretty sure it’s those two Pabst Pounders a night that are responsible for the bloat of the past six months. I suppose I could just try canning the PBR, but I’m worried about what might come next. This being Maine, beer and ice cream can be the gateway drugs that lead to Jell-O shots and Allen’s Coffee Brandy. So here I am with a cold brew in hand contemplating my navel. Yes, I can still see it, but what is my gut doing hanging over my belt? It didn’t do that last time I looked. Maybe if I untuck my shirt no one will notice. We live in a culture that worships the thin. “You can’t be too rich or too thin,” as socialite Babe Paley (or was it socialite Wallis Simpson?) used to say. Unless, of course, you’re anorexic. There is a prejudice against people who are overweight that assumes some sort of failure of willpower or self-discipline on their part. I’m afraid I’ve been guilty of this bias myself. The epidemic of obesity in this country is all over


been a relatively private effort starts to become official, bureaucratic, rule-bound, public school action. What had been largely voluntary starts to become more obligatory. What had been a donation becomes a mandatory user fee. I don’t question the value of sport in education, the need

the news these days. Michelle Obama has made childhood obesity one of her causes. And it was reported last week that Maine is the fattest state in New England, with 26.5 percent of adults overweight. I guess I’m now part of the problem. To be perfectly honest though, I don’t know how I feel about government and employer programs to get people to lose weight. On the one hand, I suppose it is a public-health issue that has a major impact on the cost of health care. On the other, (don’t let any libertarians hear me say this) it does smack a bit of a nanny state. Your body is your personal responsibility, right? I’d like to take credit for staying in shape for 62 years, but I’ve been thin all my life through no effort of my own. It’s all genetics and metabolism. I can’t think of an overweight blood relative on either side of the family. I was the proverbial 90-pound weakling in high school and I only weighed 140 pounds when I got married. I had a 28-inch waist in college. Now I’m up to 35 inches and counting. For most of my life I have been able to eat or drink anything I want in any amount without gaining weight. My body image problems have always been related to being an ectomorph, so concerns about a beer belly are new to me. Now I feel like a beached whale at the beach, but as a kid, I was self-conscious about my ribs showing and my girly arms. Then, sometime in high school, I realized that the girls to whom I was attracted were not all that interested in muscles. I found I could compensate for my lessthan-manly physique with intelligence, wit, and some strategic sweet-talking. I could try compensating for my new girth the same way, but Carolyn has been on to me from the beginning. “You just keep talking, honey,” she likes to say when I’m digging a verbal hole for myself. Nope. No way around it. I’ve got to start losing weight. I’m not sure I could forgive myself if I hit 200. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Jeanne B. Caouette, 89: Loved to garden, travel LEWISTON — Jeanne B. Caouette, 89, died peacefully after a short illness on July 8 while surrounded by her family at Central Maine Medical Center. She was born in Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, to Joseph B. Morin and Bernadette L. Lebel. When her parents moved back to Brunswick, she attended St. John’s School and later on St. Joseph’s Academy in Portland. Caouette In 1943 she became a naturalized citizen. The following year she married Edward J. Caouette. She worked for over 20 years in the textile industry; first at Verney Mill in Brunswick, and later at Bates Manufacturing in Lewiston.

Entertaining in a pet-friendly home Pets are prized pals in many households. However, guests invited over for a special occasion who are not as enamored with animals may not be anxious about sharing party space with Fido or the family feline. In such instances, it’s up to the host to make guests feel more comfortable. In the days leading up to the party, consult guests about any pet allergies. If a person who will be coming over is allergic to cats or dogs, thoroughly clean and air out the house. Regardless of how diligent a host is, it only takes a little bit of an irritant to trigger an allergic reaction. As a courtesy to guests who are a little intimidated by pets, keep the dog or cat in a separate room. Be sure to feed and walk the animal prior to company coming over so he or she will be comfortable. Do not yell at the pet or make it feel like the seclusion is a punishment. If young children will be in attendance, it can be a good idea to keep pets secured in another area as a precaution. Even the best-behaved pets may become skittish with a lot of people around and act out of character. Young children are prone to pulling on dogs’ ears or engaging in chase and teasing behaviors. Because as party host you’ll have to divide your attention among many things, you do not want to have to worry about the interaction between pets and children. Pets that have some behavioral issues should definitely be separated from guests for safety’s sake.

Some pet parents find that bringing pets to a boarder or pet daycare on the day of their party is a wise idea. This way the pet is away from the commotion and he or she can enjoy time with other animals. Parties can be stressful for animals as well. Keeping them away from the situation may be the most ideal solution. Should guests be comfortable with pets around, be sure they are aware of some house rules. This includes not feeding the animal any table scraps or whatever else is priority in the house.

Sometimes it’s best not to have pets as the life of the party.

Out & About

Brunswick boasts 2 music festivals By Scott Andrews July marks the high season for Maine’s many music festivals, and Brunswick is the venue for two of them this weekend. The Bowdoin International Music Festival is Maine’s biggest classical gathering, boasting about 80 concerts by established professional musicians, well-known ensembles and the upper echelon of conservatory students. Most of these performances are held on the Bowdoin College campus in Brunswick. BIMF enters its third (of six) weeks this Friday in a concert that features the final 2011 Bowdoin performance of one of the top string quartets in the U.S. Brunswick is also the venue for one of Maine’s most modest bluegrass events. The White’s Beach Family Bluegrass Festival, which runs July 15-17, has been a showcase for Maine bands for the more than a decade. Back in Portland, New York organist Stephen Tharp will be the next performer in the 99th summer concert series on the mighty Kotzschmar Memorial Organ.

Bowdoin International Music Festival Of all Maine’s dozen-plus classical music festivals, none matches the size and artistic scope of the Bowdoin International Music Festival, a fixture of the Mid-Coast cultural community for 47 years. The festival got started as a modest series of chamber music concerts in the summer of 1964 when the late Robert K. Beckwith, then chairman of the Bowdoin College music department, hired an ensemble fronted by Lewis Kaplan, an eager and ambitious Juilliard violin teacher. Kaplan is now one of Juilliard’s most senior and most esteemed master pedagogues, and the modest concert series has now expanded to a six-week gathering of more than 200 students – mostly enrolled in conservatories or pre-professional programs – and a faculty of about 50 who guide advanced studies and coach chamber music ensembles.


The Ying Quartet, a major classical music ensemble based at the Eastman School of Music, appears three weeks every summer at the Bowdoin International Music Festival in Brunswick. The quartet’s final 2011 festival performance is slated for July 15.

There are three concert series that mostly feature the festival faculty, interspersed with a few students. The flagship series runs Fridays. On July 15, the program highlight will be a performance by the nationally renowned Ying Quartet in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s String Quartet in D Major, one of a set of six ground-breaking quartets written in the early 1780s. Top billing on the Monday Sonata series for July 18 will be two long-time BIMF regulars, violinist Sergiu Schwartz and pianist Peter Basquin. On Wednesday, July 20, the Upbeat! series continues with a performance of a modern piece for harp and violin written by Jean Cras. The performers will be harpist June Han and violinist Muneko Otani. Friday concerts are held at Crooker Auditorium at Brunswick High School. The Monday and Wednesday series are held at Studzinski Hall on the Bowdoin College campus. All three concert series are slated for 7:30 p.m. Call 725-3895 or visit www.

Comment on this story at:

White’s Beach Bluegrass Festival Don’t expect to find any Juilliard violinists at the White’s Beach Bluegrass Festival in Brunswick. Just fiddlers galore. Plus banjos, guitars, mandolins, upright basses and the “high lonesome” tenor voices. One of Maine’s most modest bluegrass affairs, White’s Beach has primarily focused on showcasing in-state talent for nearly a decade and a half. The small stage, constructed to imitate a front porch, establishes the down-home flavor. I’ve attended this festival several times and enjoyed every visit. This year’s lineup of artists includes Phat Grass, Nit Pickers, Pine Hill Ramblers, Cribstone Bridge, Cliff Marshall Band and Mainely Grass. Bring lawn chairs, sunscreen and bug spray, and plunk yourself down for hours of music Friday evening, all day Saturday and Sunday morning. Plus bring bathing suits and take a swim in the pond. White’s Beach Campground is on Durham Road about 2.2 miles west of Route 1. Call 7290415.

Feel Good Inside

When Pope Benedict XVI visited New York City in 2008, an organist was needed for three of the pontiff’s high-profile public events – a trio of services that would be attended by 60,000 people and broadcast live to millions around the world. To do the keyboard honors, the organizers of the papal visit turned to Stephen

Tharp, the city’s top organist. Recognized as one of the foremost performers of our age, Tharp has played 35 solo intercontinental tours and more than 1,300 concerts worldwide since his professional career began in 1987, earning him the reputation as the most traveled organist of his generation. Tharp won’t need to hop between continents to play the mighty Kotzschmar Memorial Organ on July 19 as one of the 2011 summer season guest performers on the behemoth instrument in Portland City Hall. The concert series, now in its 99th year, is sponsored by the Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ, a support group that helps the city maintain the huge machine. The Kotzschmar Organ was a gift to the city from publishing magnate Cyrus H.K. Curtis. It was named in honor of a Curtis family friend, Hermann Kotzschmar, a German immigrant who was the publisher’s childhood music teacher and the city’s most prominent musican in the late 19th century. Built by the Austin Organ Co. of Hartford, Conn., it was the second largest organ in the world when it was installed in 1912. The original organ was enlarged in 1927, again funded by Curtis. At this time the Antiphonal Organ was added, as well as a large number of ranks to the Swell division and a number of percussion stops. During a massive renovation project of the auditorium in the 1990s, a new and enlarged wind chest was constructed. Additional pipes were added in 2003. Today the Kotzschmar boasts nearly 6,900 pipes in 102 ranks in eight divisions: Swell, Great, Solo, Orchestral, Antiphonal, Echo, Pedal and Percussion. The Echo and Antiphonal divisions can be heard emanating from the large grid in the ceiling near the rear of the hall. The city and FOKO plan to raise more than $1 million for a new round of repairs and renovations with the intention of restoring the instrument to tip-top condition for its 100th season next year. In keeping with Tharp’s reputation as a champion of new music, his July 19 program is fairly heavily weighted toward modern compositions. Among them will be Eugenio Maria Fagiani’s Symphonic Suite based on Psalm 100, which was commissioned by the organist and dedicated to him. Earlier and better-known composers will be represented in works of Johann Sebastian Bach and Franz Liszt. Catch Stephen Tharp at the multiple keyboards of the mighty Kotzschmar Organ 7:30 p.m. July 19 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Pre-concert discussions are held at 6:30 p.m. in the rehearsal room. Visit

Landfill from page 1

was built in 1984, it was designed with a low-tech waste-water treatment system. When it rains, the water seeps through the landfill, mixes with liquid in the decomposing trash, and trickles into a lagoon the size of a basketball court. Over the course of about 100 days, the water will pass through two additional, smaller lagoons. Along the way, microbes eat the organic matter in the waste water. By the time it is discharged into the Androscoggin River, most of the pollutants will be gone. This system worked well until 2000, when the EPA enacted new standards for landfills. When the Brunswick landfill renewed its new waste water discharge permit in 2004, the standards were much more strict than ever before. Almost immediately it became apparent that the landfill was going to have trouble consistently complying with at least one new category on its license: ammonia. The nearly 30-year-old waste-water treatment system at the landfill wasn’t designed to remove ammonia, and cold winters exacerbated the problem, according to Matt Hight, the DEP waste water compliance inspector assigned to the landfill. But it wasn’t just ammonia. The leachate also occasionally contained too much E. coli, a bacteria often found in feces; total suspended solids; and biochemical oxygen demand, a measure of how much oxygen the pollutants in the water will consume, according to notifications sent by the DEP to the landfill between 2004 and the present. None of the violations were severe

Burned building from page 1 homeless by a fire at 84 Union St. In April, another 19 people were displaced at 18 Oak St., and a week later another blaze destroyed 45 Maine St., forcing the relocation of more than a dozen residents. A kitchen fire broke out in a High Street apartment building in early June, and the Unitarian Universalist Church on Pleasant Street was gutted by a blaze the same week. The Oak Street and church fires were caused by electrical problems; the High and Union street fires were due to cooking accidents, and the Maine Street fire’s cause was officially undetermined, although inspectors believe it was electrical in nature. None of these could have been prevented by better fire inspections, Town Manager Gary Brown emphasized at Monday’s Town Council meeting. Still, the trend may be worrisome enough for the town to consider changing the way enough to compromise water quality in the Androscoggin; the approximately 20,000 gallons of leachate discharged each day is tiny in comparison to the river’s total flow. But they still violated DEP standards, meaning the landfill was not using the best available technology to clean the waste water. In addition, landfill operators weren’t monitoring for pollutants in the leachate as often as they were supposed to. Some of those missed monitoring periods can be explained by weather, according to a letter to the DEP from the town’s environmental consultant, Randy Tome of Woodard & Curran. In the summer, monitoring can be impaired when the flow from the lagoons dries up, while in the winter the lagoons freeze over. But other times, Director of Public Works John Foster admitted, landfill staff were too busy to monitor, or were out sick and their replacements didn’t know how to do the monitoring. As problems arose, Foster tried to address them. He added chlorine tablets to the water to deal with the E. coli, and hydrogen peroxide to introduce more oxygen, and stopped draining the septage from the employee bathroom septic tank into the lagoons. He also tried to limit the amount of water seeping into the landfill by covering unused portions. But the ammonia problem has persisted, and DEP staff and Foster all say that the fundamental issue with the lagoons is that the technology is outdated. “It’s very low-tech,” said Linda Butler, who works in the solid waste management division of the DEP. “Brunswick’s treatment was functioning and acceptable against the Comment on this story at:

it inspects apartment buildings. Councilor Margo Knight, in whose district the majority of the fires occurred, said that the goal is to have an annual inspection of buildings that contain three or more apartments. Fire Chief Ken Brillant said the plan is in its early stages, but he hopes to have some ideas in the next few weeks.

Oak Street fire aftermath In addition to pressing the town for better fire inspections, some residents want the town to pressure the owner of 16-18 Oak St. to clean up the property. Kevin Twine, who lives across the street from the building, was one of a handful of residents who attended Monday’s council meeting and spoke on the matter. He was concerned that the building looks the same as it did three months ago, and noted that it is visible to drivers on Route 1. Ann Marr, who lives on Cumberland Street, wrote an email to the town manager, code enforcement officer, and other town

standards of the time, but things change.”

Operating without a license When the landfill’s waste water discharge license expired in November 2009, town staff missed the deadline to apply for a renewal. Foster said Woodard & Curran neglected to inform them the deadline was approaching. Foster submitted a renewal application a few weeks late, but the DEP has still not granted the landfill a discharge permit. Part of the reason no new permit has been granted is due to the landfill’s history of permit violations, and its unique status as the only landfill in the state that discharges to surface water, Hight said. In addition, Foster was attempting to apply for a variance to the EPA’s landfill waste-water discharge limits on the grounds that the Brunswick dump is fundamentally different from the landfills the agency considered when making its new rules. But the EPA denied Foster’s request, leaving the landfill without a license and still discharging into the Androscoggin – a violation of state environmental law. “Every day that they discharge is technically a violation because they’re discharging without a permit,” said Bill Hinkel, who oversees waste water discharge licensing at the DEP.

Solving the dilemma Operating without a license compounded the landfill’s earlier permit and monitoring violations, and prompted the DEP to send Foster a notice of violation in May. As a result, he voluntarily entered a conofficials on Monday expressing concern that the building is not properly secured, and asking why it is taking the owner so long to rebuild. “In my view point, it is not boarded up correctly to protect the building from weather and illegal entry,” she said Tuesday. But Code Enforcement Officer Jeff Hutchinson said the building is properly secured on the first floor, which is all that is required. A visit to the building on Tuesday revealed that all the first-floor windows are either intact or covered, although several second-floor windows are broken. But the building still displays visible fire damage. Its plastic siding is melted and warped around a gaping, charred hole in the back and roof. Personal items can still be seen inside several of the windows, and blackened roofing materials hang over the exterior walls in several places. Owner Jeffrey Matthews said he removed charred materials that were lying around the building and mowed the grass after a neighbor complained, but hasn’t done much else because he was instructed not to by his insurance company. “I was told not to do anything, other than remove debris, until I have a check in hand,” he said. He said he didn’t know why it was taking his insurance company so long to cover the damages. In the meantime, he said he’s not sure what he’ll do next. “It’s pretty tough to make a decision of what I want to do because I haven’t had an offer from the insurance company,” he said. “Until I have a check in hand I don’t know what I’m going to do.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext.123 or Follow her on Twitter: @ guerinemily.

sent agreement with the DEP to negotiate any monetary penalties and work out how to solve the landfill’s problems. Tome said addressing the landfill’s problems, especially the excess ammonia, could be costly. “It’s very difficult to treat (ammonia) within a lagoon system, particularly in cold climates,” he said. “... It won’t work with the system they have really no matter what we do.” Other Maine landfills, like the ones in Bath and at ecomaine in Portland, send their leachate to waste-water treatment plants, something Tome said would be expensive and impractical in Brunswick because the plant is nearly eight miles away from the nearest plant and not on a sewer line. Because the consent agreement process has just begun, Tome doesn’t have concrete solutions to the ammonia problem. But he said that any major overhaul of the landfill system will have to take into account the plan to close the facility in 15 to 20 years. To get back in compliance with state and federal environmental law, the town will have to address the problems. But the limited life span, combined with the fact that the landfill’s discharge permit violations do not reduce water quality in the Androscoggin River, make Tome think that a costly solution might be a hard sell. “All of these options are expensive, and because there’s no real benefit to the environment (to addressing the permit violations),” he said, “it’s kind of a hard pill to swallow.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext.123 or Follow her on Twitter: @ guerinemily.

Radio tower from page 4 this is the section of town that we want this type of tower on,” Dana Totman said. Chairman Charles Frizzle said “the town of Brunswick has invested an awful lot in the West Brunswick area in terms of the visual appeal, and I just can’t reconcile an antenna in this location for that reason alone.” First Wave’s representatives were disappointed, but undeterred, after the decision. “We’re going to have to consider what other options we have,” said Bob Perry, the engineer for WMCE. WMCE’s owner, Jim Bleikamp, said he had not anticipated so many neighbors would have objections to the tower location. “We were not aware of opposition to this extent, but we ultimately respect the concerns of the neighbors,” he said. While First Wave searches for an appropriate location, it is trying to maintain its FCC license by going on air twice a week via another station’s tower. But Perry said this is only a temporary solution, because it forces WJTO off the air to allow WCME to broadcast. He said it’s hard to know how long they have to build a tower until the FCC pulls their license. Cashman said he had faith that Brunswick residents support the idea of a local radio station, if not the tower location that was proposed. “People respond to the idea of it being locally owned and operated,” he said. “The problem is not with the idea, but with the location.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext.123 or Follow her on Twitter:@ guerinemily.

King of the road from page 2 heard on the radio the governor of Maine is traveling out West in his RV.” “I said, ‘yeah, so I hear,’” King recalled, laughing. “People would ask me at RV parks what I did, and I would just say I’m a retired state employee, that was my standard answer.” He did, occasionally, run into other traveling Mainers who recognized him. He ran into an employee of Kennebunk Savings Bank who was attending a banking conference in Las Vegas while taking the elevator to the bottom of the Hoover Dam. She spotted him immediately, despite the bushy white beard he had grown. “Gov. King!” she called out, “you’ve gone native!” Despite the occasional personal encounter, King purposefully kept his distance from Maine politics and news during the trip. Instead of checking in with legislators and advisers, he checked overpass heights on upcoming stretches

Legacy from page 3 libraries look at it and try to see what the value is, and if their patrons are wanting it, then you go with it,” Preece said. She noted that the library benefits from being part of a consortium with more than 60 other Maine libraries, allowing Topsham patrons to receive the resources they need within about a week. Downloadable materials such as audio books and electronic books are also available through the consortium; the materials ultimately expire on those devices, similar to a printed book being due back at the library. “We’ve seen a huge increase in the numbers of our statistics of people downloading and using those items,” Preece said, adding that the library has trained patrons on how to use those items on their own electronic devices. The library, which has seen an 11 percent increase in visits in the past year, has more than 7,000 patrons. Library cards are free to Topsham residents. Non-resident adult cards are $35; nonresident children’s cards are $10 and must be purchased with an adult card. Preece said the library plan is to “continue to do what we do very well, which is public service, programming, having enough information for the people who are coming into the building, that are looking for recreation research as well as studying, (and) to support the local students.” Managing library resources to meet as many community needs as possible is also part of the plan. This includes working with town authorities to acquire sufficient funding for library services, managing and boosting financial sup- yard in South Freeport, and the women inherited a 1948 wooden launch from their grandparents. They outfitted it with a tent, and last summer, made their maiden voyage to Bustin’s and Chebeague. “The boat was a huge question mark,” LeMaistre said, but almost immediately it became clear that the floating farmer’s market would be a hit. Vicki Todd said her customers at the Niblic had been asking all spring

when the veggie boat was coming back. Already the trio is thinking of expanding their service to other Casco Bay islands, and they’d like to increase the size of their eight-member Community-Supported Agriculture group. But for this summer, they’re sticking with the two islands they already serve, and trying to increase the amount of produce they provide. Still, islanders would be wise to get to

of highway. Instead of worrying about the budget, he worried about whether there was a dump station at the next RV park. The demands of the trip kept him occupied, and “sort of forced me to let go what was going on in Maine,” he said. “It turned out to be a great transition strategy.” In addition to helping King avoid the post-office depression that strikes many former elected officials, the trip gave him a new perspective on Maine. “When you’re in a job like governor you’re very intensely, narrowly focused on Maine, center of the universe,” King said. “And there’s a feeling that our problems are worse than anywhere else. ... So to tour the country and see many other places that are coping with the same problems, it didn’t make Maine’s problems any easier, but it sort of helped to realize we weren’t the only ones.” King and his family loved their time on the road so much, he and Herman are considering taking another trip. In fact, King has already started searching for the perfect

City planner

Comment on this story at:

from page 1 praised Upham’s work for the city, noting that Upham has “been a pleasure to work with. He’s a very bright man, and I often went to him for advice. We’re going to miss him.” The city will advertise soon for Upham’s replacement. Giroux expects that person to begin before Upham’s final day, to give the two a few days to work together. Upham, 65, grew up in Auburn. Following his graduation from the University of New Hampshire, he served in the U.S. Navy from 1968-1972, during the Vietnam War. “I always wanted to be in planning,” Upham said, noting that his father was a longtime Planning Board member in Auburn, “and I think that’s why I’m doing what I’m doing.” He became town manager of Mattawamkeag in 1973, a way to break into the municipal management field. The following year he served in that capacity in Glenburn, where he stayed until 1978. “I learned a lot; I did everything,” Upham said of the early days of his career. “I was the tax collector and treasurer, and welfare director, and road commissioner. I drove a snow plow truck one time. It was a valuable, valuable experience. I learned an awful lot about what towns and cities do, and what the various positions do.” Upham served as a planner in Bangor from 1978-1982, and then was planning director in Sanford until 1987. He then worked as a senior planner, first with the Dubois & King consulting firm in Saco

and then with the Southern Maine Regional Planning Commission. He served as executive director of the latter organization until December 1995, when he became planning director in Wells. A few months later, Upham got a call from Duncan Ballantyne, Bath’s city manager at the time. The planning director job had opened, but Upham didn’t apply for it; since he had just started in Wells, he said, he didn’t think it would be professional to switch jobs so quickly. Ballantyne encouraged him to drive up anyway and chat. “I grew up in Maine and had never been in downtown Bath,” Upham said. He was impressed enough with the city to bring Susan, his wife of now 42 years, back for a return trip that weekend. Upham was offered the job and started in June 1996. Upham called Bath “a great, little urban place. It’s right on the river, and it’s walkable. ... I can work in City Hall, and at lunchtime I can go to a restaurant if I wanted to, or walk around the city with my wife and our dog, which we do every noontime.” Plus the location fits in with Upham’s sailing interests. His High Street home has “a great view of the river,” he said. Upham noted that working in Bath for 15 years has allowed him the chance to watch a dream germinate. The renovation and reuse of the historic train station at 15 Commercial St., and improvements made around that building, along with work at the South End Boat Launch, are examples

of many plans that have come to fruition during his time has planner. He added that one of the jobs of the people who run the city “is to not screw things up, and also to not let others screw things up, and we’ve been able to do that. ...

Memorial from page 1 traveled Coastal Connector location for its exposure, but is now resigned to moving the memorial. He said he looks forward to having the American Legion’s help maintaining the memorial, and he hopes to erect more sturdy metal monuments at the new site and start a nonprofit organization to help the families of deceased soldiers pay for critical needs. “My intent was to have people just see how many people ... have lost their lives,” he said. The original site, on what had been known as the Hickey property, is between the Topsham Fairgrounds and the Coastal Connector. The Maine Department of Transportation had initially planned to build a garage on the property, but opted instead to build it next to the Public Works garage. The property was ultimately planned for town recreation purposes if the state did not use it. Sen. Seth Goodall, D-Richmond, was involved in the transfer deal and helped to arrange the memorial’s move to Foreside Road, on American Legion Post 202 prop-

erty. Post Commander Bob Lemont said Tuesday that the monument will be placed between a Legion baseball field and Foreside Road. “There’s going to be somebody there to keep it clean and looking nice,” he said, adding that “it’s going to be out in a nice flat area where we can all take care of it and work with (Kinney) and make it something nice for people to come see.” At a July 7 meeting, Selectman Donald Russell noted that the memorial is currently on landlocked property, and that it could be viewed only by stopping on the Coastal Connector or going through the Fairgrounds. Town Manager Cornell Knight said the memorial was scheduled to be removed from its current location on Thursday. Kinney informed the Legion that he wants to repair the silhouettes before they are erected at the new site, Knight said. Selectman Marie Brillant said Kinney’s memorial is an honorable way of recognizing the soldiers, and that moving it to the American Legion property would provide visitors with easier access. Board of Selectman Chairman Ronald Riendeau noted that “we’re not moving them because we don’t like (the memorial); we’re moving them because we want to give it a little more respect. And what better place could it be (than) on the Legion property.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@ Follow him on Twitter: @learics.
