Brunswick board puts brakes on police station plan By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Four dilapidated, vacant buildings at the corner of Pleasant and Stanwood streets will not be torn down any time soon. On Tuesday, the Village Review Board denied the Brunswick Development Corp.’s request to demolish the properties. The BDC, a quasi-municipal agency – whose board includes two town councilors, the town manager and finance director, and three public directors with experience in business – bought the properties for nearly $1 million with the intention of trans-

Plan to secure access to Cedar Beach falls through

But because the Town Council has not approved construction of a police station on the property, the BDC could offer the board no concrete plans about how the land would be used after the buildings are demolished. The uncertainty left review board members unwilling to approve the action. “Until we know what will be replacing (the buildings), it’s hard to say take them down now,” said Chairwoman Emily

By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — The latest effort to secure public access to Cedar Beach has failed.

Bath Planning Board may revise historic district standards By Alex Lear BATH — The Planning Board intends to review standards in the city’s Historic District Overlay Zone, to make them more objective and less demanding on newer buildings. The board took a trolley tour through the zone on Tuesday, guided by member Robin Haynes. The tour, much of which covered Washington Index Arts Calendar.................18 Classifieds......................26 Community Calendar......20 Meetings.........................20

Street, included a variety of classic home styles, such as Gothic Revival, Greek Revival, Italianate and Queen Anne. Haynes said she hoped the tour would give board members a new way of looking at buildings, and thinking about their historic character as form and details, not just as old buildings. She said she wanted the tour to emphasize what the historic

character of a building is, and how that character is determined. The character is in a sense the personality of a structure, and the various traits that create that personality, she said. Haynes noted that a structure’s architecture tells much about building design fashions, as well as changes in technology

This Queen Anne-style house at 1111 Washington St., Bath, was built in 1883 and once belonged to Samuel S. Sewall. It is one of many architectural treasures in the city’s Historic District Overlay Zone and was part of the Planning Board’s Tuesday trolley tour of historic homes.

Unsung Hero: John ‘Slim’ Lee, pillar for boys and girls

By David Treadwell SOUTH PORTLAND — John “Slim” Lee is a rock. For 41 years, he’s been married to the same woman (Cheryl) and he has lived in the same house. And, after seven years with the Portland Boys Club (when it was just for boys), he spent 37 years as unit director of the South Portland Boys and Girls Club, before his retirement on June 1. How did a guy like Lee get to be a guy like Lee? A solid home foundation no doubt played a role. “I grew up in Munjoy Hill in Portland with my parents and two brothers,” he said. “My parents were very loving and very hardworking. We were poor, but we didn’t know it.” Lee did not begin his long career with the noble intention of making a difference in the lives of young people. Rather, he needed a job. “I was hired to help out at the Boys Club as a part-time person in the games room, and I enjoyed it immensely,” he said. Lee’s effective way of interacting with young people impressed the organization, and he assumed the directorship of the South Portland Boys and Girls Club in 1974. What had been just a job became a calling. Lee was hooked; he really did want to lead an organization that created a life-changing environment for young people. “The Boys and Girls Club pro-

vides a safe haven for kids to have fun under adult supervision,” he said. “It’s a great alternative to being on the streets.” Lee noted that the club serves 125 to 150 kids during the school year and about 160 to 165 kids in the summer. “Summer time is the busiest, with par-

ents working,” he said. “It costs only $5 a year for a membership, so this is the best game in town for low-income parents.” Having worked so long at the same organization with the same goal (changing lives), Lee gained wisdom on young people, parenting, and societal trends. • On “bad” kids: “There are no bad kids; there are just bad parents. Too often, parents are looking for a quick fix; what they really need to do is provide tender loving care.” • Advice to parents: “Be patient. Be understanding. Be tolerant. They’re just kids. They’ll make mistakes. You have to be supportive.” • Advice to kids: “A lot of kids come

from terrible home environments, and they should use that to motivate themselves. I tell them, ‘Don’t let it get you down. Don’t feel sorry for yourself. Develop good habits. Work hard.’” • On the change in kids over the years: “We have a lot more kids now with special needs. Too often, we put labels on kids and prescribe medication.” • On the change in society: “In today’s society, everything is instant. We need to slow down and take care of each other.” • On the future of the South Portland Boys and Girls Club: “I wanted to be sure that they had the right person to replace me and they do. Jennifer Pierce, the new director, has a great rapport with kids. And the rest of the staff is fantastic.” Lee said he has no regrets about his career choice. “I loved my job. I got to work with kids, and every day was different,” he said. “I’d go home at night and think ‛I can’t believe they’re paying me for this.’” As to his retirement years, Lee said he’ll spend more time with his three grown children (all local) and grandchildren. He’ll work on his golf game. It’s also a safe bet that Lee will drop by the South Portland Boys and Girls Club from time to time, just to see how things are going. He’ll never forget why he did what he did for so many years. “We have to protect and support our young people,” Lee said. “They’re our greatest natural resource for the future.”

Train officials eye 3 Brunswick sites for depot By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Passenger rail officials last week said they are considering three sites for a proposed train layover facility. The Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority first proposed building the depot, which would be used to service Amtrak’s Downeaster, between Church Road and Stanwood Street. But overwhelming neighborhood opposition moved the agency to take a step back and consider other locations. Now the organization is considering sites in the Brunswick Industrial Park and at Cook’s Corner, along with the original location. Another three sites previously

considered by NNEPRA are all but off the table due to size and topography challenges, according to a presentation by consulting engineer John Burckhardt at a July 14 public forum. Among the three that remain, the Brunswick Industrial Park site is physically large enough to accommodate the facility, but has a steep ravine that Burckhardt said would have to be filled. That work could add to the cost. The Church-Stanwood site, while surrounded by residential neighborhoods, could easily accommodate the large

building, and is close to a “Y” in the railroad tracks that would allow the trains to easily reverse direction. Amtrak New England Division Superintendent Fred Fournier said the track configuration would improve the Downeaster’s on-time performance, and is his preferred site from an operational standpoint. Many residents at last week’s meeting seemed most interested in the Cook’s Corner property, which belongs to Topsham construction company owner Ted Crooker. Located three miles east of Maine Street Station along Bath Road, the site is large and flat enough to accommodate a 350-foot long building. But placing the facility there would

force the train to cross several additional roads, sounding its horn each time, Fournier said. Depending on the train’s schedule, those whistle blasts could occur late at night and early in the morning. The railroad tracks through that area are owned by Maine Eastern Railroad, which means the Downeaster would have to switch tracks before heading into the maintenance facility and communicate continued page 22

Town weighs future of W. Harpswell School By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — With a decision on whether to take ownership of West Harpswell School only a month away, residents met Wednesday to discuss possible uses of the building. Voters will decide at a special Town Meeting on Aug. 23 if they want the town to acquire the school property from School Administrative District 75. The school closed in June, several months after the town voted not to pay the district to keep it open. If the town decides to accept the school, it will have to pay $25,000 to SAD 75 to cover the costs of maintaining the building through March 2012. After that, the town will be responsible for maintenance and residents will have to decide what to do with the property. If the town votes against taking ownership, the school will remain property of the school district, which can dispose of it as it sees fit. If SAD 75 sells the school, the town will not receive any direct profits. Hope Hilton, who sits on the West Harpswell School Re-Use Task Force, Wednesday said the building would probably sell for around $200,000. Although the upcoming vote will not decide what to do with the school, residents at Wednesday’s meeting brainstormed possible reuses for the building. The town could either sell the school, lease it, or

lease part of it and keep the rest as town property. The task force has been meeting with members of affordable and elderly housing organizations, like Volunteers of America and the Brunswick Housing Authority, to measure their interest in the property. Both have said the school could be renovated into a multi-unit dwelling that would allow Harpswell to continue to use the gymnasium. At an previous forum, residents suggested turning the school into a community center, day-care center, athletic facilities, or leasing part of the building to a private entity like a school, restaurant or group of artists.

Wednesday’s meeting leaned towards keeping the school. “I can’t see any advantages in not taking (the school),” said Elizabeth Davis, who sits on the task force. Tom Allen wondered if made sense to hang on to the building until the economy recovers, noting that it could be worth more in the future. A public hearing on the issue will be held in the second week of August, which will be the last opportunity to discuss the proposal in an open forum before the vote.

Borowick to serve as Brunswick HS interim principal By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — School Department officials have temporarily abandoned the search for a new principal for Brunswick High School after three finalists in a row dropped out. Superintendent Paul Perzanoski said the department began searching for a principal in the winter and received 11 initial applicants. Once a finalist was

selected, the department invited him to Brunswick for a site visit in late April, but the candidate withdrew before the trip. The department initiated a second round of applications, and narrowed the pool from 13 to two. One finalist withdrew, and Perzanoski was about to nominate the other candidate to the School Board when that candidate

dropped out, too. Perzanoski said he has never had so many candidates withdraw so late in the selection process, and blamed the trend on the bad economy. He said all three finalists expressed concern about moving and being able to sell their homes. Brunswick High School Assistant Principal Donna Borowick will serve as the interim principal for the 2011-2012 year.

Perzanoski said Borowick has no intention of applying for the permanent job, and the department will begin the search again next winter. The department is now seeking an assistant principal to replace Borowick, he said. Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or Follow her on Twitter: @guerinemily.

Radio station seeks Brunswick tower site suggestions By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — First Wave Media, the group hoping to bring community radio back to Brunswick, is seeking suggestions for in-town radio tower sites. The group intends to revive WCME 900 AM and broadcast local sports, weather, and news throughout the day from its Fort Andross station. The group pitched a proposal to build a 199-foot radio tower at 400 Pleasant Hill Road to the Planning Board last week. But after hearing opposition from neighbors, the board decided not to set a public hearing on the proposal, effectively denying the project.

While First Wave could still submit the proposal to the Town Council, First Wave’s president, Jim Bleikamp, has said he will not do so. “I’m very sorry that our quest to finalize a tower site has been upsetting to certain residents of the Pleasant Hill Road area,” he wrote in an email. “In view of the opposition that was expressed at Tuesday night’s meeting of the Brunswick Planning Board, we are withdrawing this proposal.” Bleikamp’s lawyer, Andy Cashman, said another site would be difficult to find due to the many restrictions on where such a tower could be located.

News briefs

BRUNSWICK — A Woolwich man was arrested and charged with elevated aggravated assault Monday in connection with an alleged stabbing on Primrose Lane. Chuck D. Schooley, 18, of Sanders Road, Woolwich, was in Cumberland County Jail in Portland on Tuesday. Bail was set at $10,000 cash. Police said they responded to the report of a stabbing just after 1 a.m. on Monday morning. They found the victim lying in the road, bleeding from the abdomen. According to Deputy Police Chief Marc Hagan, several witnesses fled when they

saw police approaching, but the victim identified Schooley. Brunswick police requested backup from the Bath Police Department, which brought a police dog to the scene. With the dog’s help, they tracked down Schooley, who was hiding in a closet in a nearby mobile home. Police declined to identify the victim, who was transported to Maine Medical Center in Portland. They said witnesses told them Schooley and the victim were fighting when Schooley allegedly stabbed the victim once in the abdomen.

Harspwell stages annual festival, shindig, lobster boat races By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — Mitchell Field will be transformed from a quiet, former fuel farm this weekend to an outright carnival. The eighth annual Harpswell Festival, Shindig and Lobster Boat Races begin Saturday at 11 a.m. and continue through Sunday. Saturday’s lineup includes musical acts, a parade, carnival games and fireworks. The music ranges from Motor Booty Affair (“the ultimate disco party band”) to a woodwind ensemble from the Bowdoin International Music Festival. Several troupes will perform a variety of dances, from Scottish to country to belly dancers. For the less musically inclined, the Mt. Ararat Class of 2012 is hosting carnival games as part of a graduation fundraiser.

Festival Executive Director Tom Allen said the games are a new addition and a direct response to requests for more interactive activities. All the games were designed and constructed by the students, and include classic carnival activities like a bean-bag toss, mini-golf putting and ring toss. Other students have designed video-game inspired creations called Harpswell Nerf Thunder Dome and Harpswell Ninja Warriors. “We’ve never had the number of games that these kids have put together,” Allen said. There will also be a dunk tank, a bungee jump and a human-sized “hamster ball.” At 1 p.m. antique cars, gigantic puppets and costumed Harpswell residents will

parade, with Ruth Weeks presiding as the grand marshal. After the music dies down and the sun sets, festival organizers will launch fireworks. Festivities resume Sunday with the Harpswell Shindig and Lobster Boat Races. Selectman Alison Hawkes and others started the Shindig last year to provide on-shore entertainment for those viewing the lobster boat races. Like Saturday’s festival, there will be games, food vendors, and arts and crafts vendors. Offshore, lobster boats will be drag racing while live commentary is provided over

a loud speaker. The event is free, although Hawkes said donations are encouraged. Once the Shindig’s costs are covered, all excess money will go toward the Harpswell Santa Fund, which provides clothing and gifts for needy families during the holidays. Allen, who has been involved with the festival from the beginning, said he is excited to show off Mitchell Field to residents and visitors alike. “(The festival) is a way of promoting that land and making people aware of its beautiful setting and just the fact that it is ours,” he said. “It is a celebration of the town, for the town.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext.123 or Follow her on Twitter: @ guerinemily.

Greater Portland communities again break recycling record By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The ecomaine waste management company announced last week that its 43 communities set a record for recycling in the fiscal year ending June 30. The performance continues a trend that started in 2003. Spokeswoman Shelly Dunn said in a press release that ecomaine received more than 35,600 tons of recycling in the year, a 5.6 percent increase over the previous fiscal year. June also set a monthly record with more than 3,200 tons of recycling, 73 tons more than the previous record set in August 2010. Dunn said ecomaine has already seen a record fall in the new fiscal year, too. The single-day recycling record was broken July 5, when the company took in 210 tons of material. Ecomaine Chairman Michael Bobinsky, who is Portland’s director of public services, attributed the record to the group’s “aggressive educational outreach” and simplified recycling program. Dunn said educational outreach includes open houses, school or group

tours of the plant at 64 Blueberry Lane, school presentations and community television public service announcements. Ecomaine also honors top recyclers with its annual awards. Higher recycling rates are not only good for the environment, but for the budgets of the member municipalities, which pay by the ton to dispose of trash. “If, instead, all those recycled tons had been left in with the trash, the bill for waste disposal would have been much higher for municipal taxpayers,” Bobinsky said. In 2007, ecomaine instituted single-sort recycling, which leaves the task of sepa-

rating metals from recyclable glass, paper, cardboard and plastic to a machine. “We’ve gone up every year since 2003,” Dunn said. “The biggest jump came after (the introduction of) singlesort.” Pownal was the top recycler in fiscal 2011, at 47 percent of its total waste. The town eclipsed North Yarmouth, which was the top recycler in 2010 at 44 percent. Four municipalities – Cumberland, Falmouth, Hollis and Scarborough – saw their recycling rates drop by a percentage point or less. Dunn said that’s not surprising, since those communities generally are among the top recyclers in the area. Ecomaine is owned and operated by 21 municipalities, including Portland, South

Portland, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, Cumberland, North Yarmouth, Yarmouth, Freeport and Pownal. It provides contract services to 22 other communities and a total population of 335,000 people. Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or Follow him on Twitter: @randybillings

A summer love letter to Maine By Sandi Amorello It’s been six years since I moved here, and I’m ready to confess what I know you’ve been hoping to read: I think I’m in love. With the coast of Maine. Given my post-widowhood dating history, I tend to be a bit cynical about love – but the coast of Maine is different. (Admittedly, there are certain days in late February when I would ditch Maine for, say, a Caribbean island. Sometimes one can be in love, and still not be prepared to make a total commitment.) It began the way most torrid love affairs begin: physical attraction. When we met that first July, there was an undeniable, underlying undercurrent of sexual tension. The first time I arrived at the beach in Cape Elizabeth, I felt a pounding in my chest. Maine was hot – not in a temperature sense, but in a rugged, sensual way. I found the coast of Maine strong, yet sensitive. The frothy

waves pounding relentlessly against the rocky coastline left me breathless. The soft ocean breezes whispered secrets into my ear late at night. It had obviously been seducing other women long before my arrival on the No Sugar scene, but I found that to be a turn-on. I was smitten. The Maine coast in the summertime is just plain sexy. Where else can you go to a business meeting in a skirt and flip-flops? It’s enough to set a woman’s heart on fire. I recall attending a meeting early one September, as I sat there, listening intently to talk of strategies and logo design, Sandi Amorello I noticed I still had sand between my toes from my walk on the beach earlier that morning. Yes, I could have washed off my feet, but why spoil the fun? Even though it was years ago, I still recall the feelings of my first official “summer in Maine.” The salty air brought back happy memories of many wonderful seaside vacations in New Jersey, as a child, and later in Cape Cod, as a young wife and mother. I felt like the luckiest woman alive; I was now living in a self-proclaimed “Vacationland.”

That first summer, I’d think nothing of donning a two-piece swimsuit, throwing on a sarong, and going about my daily routine. I recall stopping at the Mobil station to pump my own gas, and suddenly realizing that, although summer tourists were indeed roaming the aisles of the CVS, I was apparently the only resident walking around town in beach attire. I initially reveled in this fact, but then was a bit disheartened when other mothers in town didn’t catch on to the trend. Looking at them in their capris, traditional business apparel and L.L. Bean hiking shorts, I wanted to shout, “Hey, we’re at the beach! Haven’t you driven down the street? There’s sand! There’s an ocean!” I was so excited to have moved here, I just couldn’t contain my enthusiasm that first season. In addition to a refusal to wear any footwear other than flip-flops, I also developed a lovely new ritual: I’d take my coffee to the beach. Every morning. Even if just for five minutes of quiet contemplation. One day, I invited a new neighborhood friend to join me. As we sat together on a stretch of sand, looking out at a few distant sailboats, she said, “You know, I never do this anymore. I should remember to do this.” Silently, in my head and heart, I vowed then and there that I’d never take this wondrous place for granted. I’ve kept my vow, and still sip my coffee at the beach whenever possible, and also take frequent walks there. I’m always awed, always amazed, and frequently proclaim aloud, “I can’t believe that I live here.” Maybe part of it is because I moved here to heal, and the ocean was my salvation, after having experienced the depths of despair. All I know is, Maine makes me happy. I may complain about the lack of an expansive dating pool, or the fact that there is a disconcerting quantity of flannel in circulation at certain times of the year, but I think I may, indeed, be in love.

Access to the wild suburbs

A reminder for the wealthy

Lately, pleas for fairly shared sacrifice for our country’s economy fall on too many deaf and inexperienced ears. As children of the Great Depression, many of us “oldies” would like to remind the most wealthy people and corporations in our beloved country that without the faithful, most underpaid and hard work of the many of us, you few could not be so unfairly rich. Maria Holt Bath

Portland boosters’ plight not surprising I read Halsey Frank’s column “Stop Me ...” with a lot of sadness, but not a lot of surprise. I have four children, two boys and two girls, all grown up. They all participated in high school sports and were in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. If I were you, I would try to have the superintendent of schools removed from office. Maybe he would be happier in a more liberal state. Ed Zink Yarmouth

People don’t generally appreciate it when folks from away weigh in on local affairs, so I will withhold my thoughts about the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust’s refusal to allow the Shore Road Pathway to go through its Robinson’s Woods preserve. I’m sure they mean well and are only trying to remain faithful to the donor’s wishes with regard to access. I must confess, however, that I have long been of two minds about the preservation of wild The Universal and open spaces. On the one hand, conservation easements and land trusts are great ways to preserve open space and public access. On the other, do we really want the present dictating to the future what it can and cannot do with land? Eventually, it becomes the dead telling the living what to do. But then I’m pretty Edgar Allen Beem sure the late Gov. Percival P. Baxter wouldn’t approve of a lot of things now permitted in his “Forever Wild” gift of Baxter State Park. I was thinking about this when Carolyn and Rudy, our faithful (to her) canine companion, and I went down to Littlejohn Island to explore the Littlejohn Island Preserve, a 23-acre point of land owned by the Royal River Conservation Trust. We’ve lived in Yarmouth for 30 years and we had never been to the preserve, which turned out to something of a less developed Mackworth Island – walking path, scenic views of the bay and islands, swimmable shore turning to bluffs, woods, fields, berries, birdsong – just beautiful. We went down to check out the Littlejohn Preserve because a week before a friend had complained that every time she went there, a woman would appear from down a long driveway to say, “You do know this is a private road, don’t you?” People tend to be protective of their privacy and of their privileges, especially the wealthy. Yarmouth, like Cape Elizabeth, is a fairly upscale little suburb. Cousins Island is its rural shore front, secluded Littlejohn its best-kept secret. And even people who live on the front side of Littlejohn don’t


always know what to make of some of the folks down the end of Pemasong Lane. Think Prouts Neck without the locked gates. “Can’t you read. Can’t you see. This is private property.” These words from the Babes in Toyland song “The Forest of No Return” ran through my head as we walked down the road and into the preserve, but other than a few “Keep Out” and “No Trespassing” signs there was nothing and no one to give offense except an unfortunate development of unnecessarily large homes. When the out-of-state family that had owned the north end of Littlejohn for generations decided to subdivide in 2006, it generously made the 23-acre preserve available to the Royal River Conservation Trust for a song, which the trust got from a Mellon foundation. Parking has been something of an issue for the preserve. The trust website instructs visitors to park at the very end of the road, but in a bow to neighbors, who apparently complained about the public parking on their private road, there is now a more recent sign that asks visitors to park outside the gates of the subdivision and to walk the two tenths of a mile to the preserve and its half-mile of shorefront. Not a problem, but there’s only room for about two cars to park. Parking and access to the shore, of course, are also issues these days at Higgins Beach and Scarborough Beach. We don’t want a proliferation of seaside parking lots, of course, but we do want to make the beautiful places in Maine more accessible. Maybe remote parking lots and shuttle vans, something like the arrangement Chebeague Island has to park on Route 1 and bus people to the ferry dock. Now that we know about Littlejohn Island Preserve, we plan to go there often. These little vestigial wilds are what make cities and suburbs habitable. And reclaiming the Maine landscape for the people of Maine, as the Royal River Conservation Trust has been doing, is as worthwhile an endeavor as there is at the state or local level.

To Avoid Fraud, Thoroughly Research Investment Tips By Gerri Walsh, FINRA Investor Education Foundation

They were told the windmills would be small enough to install on rooftops, Ray Thompson, 71, said. Shareholders could purchase exclusive territories and lease windmills to homeowners and businesses. The Thompsons invested $30,000 and were to receive shares in the windmill company, three territories in which they could launch their business and three free windmills of their own. But after traveling to Las Vegas for the initial shareholder meeting in 2008, the Thompsons realized they had been scammed—there were no innovative new windmills. The Thompsons and about 200 other investors were shown a full-size windmill, still being set up in the middle of the Nevada desert. “When I saw that windmill,” said Carolyn Thompson, 65,

There’s nothing wrong with getting investment ideas from friends and acquaintances, but investors shouldn’t just rely on casual tips. Before handing over any money, you need to thoroughly research the investment and the person selling it.



“I couldn’t stop the tears from rolling down my cheeks. It was nothing like what they were telling us.” Con men regularly rely on word-of-mouth to bring in new victims. Or they make their pitches to groups, knowing that subtle social pressure brings in more money. Psychologists call it “social consensus,” and it is the foundation of affinity fraud. The thinking goes that if everyone is doing it, it must be okay. But the problem is that no one looks behind the curtain to question the man working the levers. In the Thompsons’ case, that man had a long history of alleged scams and was eventually convicted of fraud in a federal district court in California. “What we really feel bad about,” said Ray Thompson, “is that we talked to other people and got them into it, too. They lost $10,000 each. My losses are my fault, but when I bring other people into it, I’m really sorry about that.” is a project of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation in collaboration with the Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation Office of Securities, AARP Maine and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Stubborn fat around intestines reduced

Dr. Frank Ryan, famous plastic surgeon to the Hollywood stars, was featured on television and in magazines across the nation on an extensive basis. Before he died in a tragic car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway near his ranch in Malibu, Dr. Ryan fulfilled his lifelong dream of developing a line of products which would substantially improve personal appearance without plastic surgery. This product line, which includes an advanced abdominal fat reducer was previously only available to Dr. Ryan’s clients. It has now been made available to the public.

physical activity. People who were not exercising or dieting lost weight and pot belly as well as those who were exercising and dieting. The study also showed that Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer significantly increased calorie burning so that you lose weight faster or you can eat more food without gaining weight. And, the study found that the all natural Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer pill produced weight loss safely. How does Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer work? It was found in a number of research studies that a substance called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) decreases abdominal body fat in three ways: 1.) CLA decreases abdominal body fat mass by decreasing the amount of abdominal fat that is stored after eating; 2.) CLA increases the rate of fat breakdown in abdominal fat cells; and 3.) CLA increases the rate of abdominal fat metabolism which decreases the total number of fat cells. You can think of CLA as a match that lights the fuse in abdominal fat. This fuse also increases metabolic rate that can result in more fat loss. Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer contains the effective dose of CLA. CLA interferes with an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase (LPL). LPL is an enzyme that helps store fat in the body. 2 So, by inhibiting this fat-storing enzyme LPL, CLA can help reduce the reaccumulation of fat. CLA also helps the body use its existing abdominal fat for energy, thereby increasing fat oxidation and energy expenditure. Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer also contains other super highly advanced all-natural ingredients that help reduce abdominal fat. Studies have shown that Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer ingredients increase the rate of fat metabolism, which reduces both surface and intestinal abdominal fat and helps inhibit future formation of these abdominal fats.3, 4, 5 One of these ingredients is a very high quality and

An advanced line of products produced by famous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan is now available to the public. Previously these products had only been available to Dr. Ryan’s clients which included Oscar winning Hollywood movie stars and celebrities across the nation. These products substantially improve personal appearance without plastic surgery. Dr. Ryan, perhaps the most famous Hollywood plastic surgeon in recent times, was extensively featured on television and in magazines across the nation. Dr. Ryan was also one of the first professional staff members of Endless Youth and Life which provides products and services that make celebrities look and perform many years younger than their age. On August 16, 2010 Dr. Ryan died in a tragic car accident. It was Dr. Ryan’s wishes that Endless Youth and Life would make his advanced non-surgical product line available to the public in the future. Endless Youth and Life is now complying with Dr. Ryan’s wishes. The first product being offered to the public is Dr. Ryan’s most popular non-surgical personal appearance enhancement product, Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer. Abdominal fat is the most stubborn fat to reduce and it is also the most hazardous fat to health. Abdominal fat produces destructive hormones that spread throughout the body. A clinical study has shown that Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer can reduce your pot belly without changing your diet or physical activity. A double blind clinical study was conducted on Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer. The study was commissioned by Advanced Supplement Research and used a research group which conducts clinical studies for the major drug companies.

By Bryan O’Connor Like any all-star game, baseball’s midsummer classic has its features and its flaws, its friends and its foes. For decades, it set the standard for sports all-star games, an intense inter-league rivalry burning at the core of an annual showcase of great talent and larger-than-life personalities. In recent years, the game has grown somewhat stale, alienating some of its fan base with new rules and changing dynamics. I still consider the All-Star Game one of the highlights of the MLB season. Here are three reasons to love the All-Star Game, along with two reasons it’s not what it used to be: It’s a showcase of elite talent. Theoretically, the best player at each position in each league starts the game. The reserves are worldclass as well, sometimes better than the starters, and the bullpen is stacked with the game’s best starters and relievers. Best of all, they’re all in one place, cracking jokes at the Home Run Derby, hugging and highfiving regular season rivals as they drive each other in or turn a great double play. The World Series usually gives us two great teams, but only in the All-Star Game can we watch Justin Verlander pitch against Matt Kemp, Prince Fielder and Joey Votto in succession. The talent isn’t always elite. Verlander won’t pitch in this year’s game because he pitched on the final Sunday of the first half. Several other great pitchers will back out for the same reason, and players like Derek Jeter will take the week to nurse minor injuries that wouldn’t keep them out of a regular season game. A player who opts out of the game is replaced by the third-or-fourth best player at his position — often someone having a decent season but without any real star power. Sometimes, as in Jeter’s case, the starters are selected for the game based solely on star power, years after their tenure as useful major leaguers has lapsed. Jhonny “Sic” Peralta won’t make this year’s game despite having a much better season than Jeter. Conversely, Albert Pujols won’t be there because he’s not having as strong a season as Fielder and Votto. We can’t always get the biggest names and the best players in the game. Furthermore, the rule requiring each team to be represented in the All-Star Game waters down the talent pool. Does anyone really want to see Aaron Crow pitch

against Hunter Pence just because their teams don’t have anyone better to call an All-Star? It’s a fascinating puzzle for managers. I’m a fan of American League baseball, so I don’t get to witness NL strategy too often. The Red Sox tend to start and finish games with the same nine hitters and a regular season game might have two or three pitching changes. In the All-Star Game, the managers whose teams made the previous year’s World Series have to deal with 30-something largerthan-life egos, some of whom play for them all year, while others play for bitter rivals. Their primary goal tends to be finding an inning or an at-bat for everyone, while saving a pitcher or two in case the game goes into extra innings. This takes serious skill and mastery of the art of the double switch, which replaces a pitcher and a position player at the same time, generally switching their spots in the batting order to bring a better hitter (or just one who may not otherwise get an at-bat) to the plate in the next inning. Of course, the manager’s other goal is to win the game, which tends to be a competitive one. While the American League had won 12 consecutive decisions (excluding 2002’s tie) before losing last year, six straight games have been decided by one or two runs. This makes for great theater, except that ... The players don’t really care. From the first All-Star Game in 1933 to the introduction of interleague play in 1997, American League players rarely had a chance to play against their National League counterparts. Aside from the World Series, there was no way to pit the leagues against each other to determine which was the superior league. From the AL sweeping the first three games and taking seven of eight in the 1940s to the National League winning 19 of 20 between1963 and 1982, the All-Star Game settled the debate of league superiority. Iconic moments like Stan Musial’s 12th inning walk-off homer (yeah, the starters were still in the game back then) and Pete Rose barreling over Ray Fosse at home plate were born of an intense rivalry and great league pride. In recent years, players have had more opportunities to play against each other throughout the year, both through interleague play and more player movement. Trades have always been a part of

the game, but free agency is less than 40 years old and the practice of offloading high-priced stars for prospects at the July trade deadline is even newer. If former Blue Jay and current Phillie Roy Halladay pitches to David Ortiz in this year’s game, it will be the 107th time the two have faced off. Halladay will look for his 17th strikeout of Ortiz, while Ortiz will try to take Halladay deep for the seventh time. Business as usual. After the aforementioned tie, baseball commissioner Bud Selig introduced an incentive to keep the game competitive, awarding home field advantage in the World Series to the team from the league that won the All-Star Game. I’ve seen little evidence that this reward has motivated the players, as dozens of players opt out of the game every year and as far as I know, no starter has begged his manager to let him play the whole game. Most of the players in the game won’t even see the World Series, and even if they do, no World Series has gone seven games since 2002, so home field advantage hasn’t meant much. It’s a subject of great debate. Despite all its faults, baseball’s All-Star Game will always be entertaining for one reason above all: debate. The fans vote on the starters, which tends to skew the results toward established stars and players who play in bigger markets with more fans. Most of the reserves and some of the pitchers are chosen by the players themselves, in a convoluted process that usually picks several worthy players and a few head-scratchers. The remaining players are chosen by the managers, who have to be sure every team is represented before choosing players who will help their team win the game. As fans, we love the opportunity to influence the game by voting, and we bemoan the fact that other fans get to vote in their hometown guys ahead of ours. We chastise the managers for going with their own guy over a more qualified player (anyone remember Ryan Howard over Joey Votto in 2010?). We question what stats everyone else was looking at when they overlooked the guy leading the league in the stats we view as important. All of this is what makes Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game fun for baseball fans. Even if the players would rather take a few days off.

Out & About

Music festival, opera are top choices By Scott Andrews One of the summer’s best music festivals takes place this weekend, and Portland’s only resident opera company is busily preparing its big summer production. Both have been high on my personal must-do list for years. Ossipee Valley Music Festival got its start with bluegrass in 1999. Since then its offerings have broadened to include many traditional artists not strictly associated with bluegrass, plus others who draw on traditional music to create their own modern sound. There’s a homecoming mood at PORTopera this summer. The company, which features top-tier professional productions starring internationally acclaimed singers, has turned to a Maine native for the title role in “La Fille du Regiment,” Gaetano Donizetti’s delightfully melodic romantic comedy. Ashley Emerson got started in the PORTopera chorus and has moved on to major roles at the Metropolitan Opera and elsewhere. PORTopera welcomes her back as high-spirited Marie for two performances, July 28 and 30.

Ossipee Valley Music Festival Variation on old-time American musical traditions is the dominant theme of one of Maine’s most intriguing music festivals. The Ossipee Valley Music Festival got its start a dozen years ago as one of Maine’s many bluegrass happenings, but in recent years its lineup of artists has broadened to include performers who have branched off in different directions. The festival – two stages plus numerous parallel side events – runs through July 24 at the Ossipee Valley Fairground in South Hiram, about an hour west of Portland. It is produced by Raetha Stoddard and Bill Johnson, two music fans who also run a nearby apple orchard. I’ve attended the Ossipee Valley festival nearly every year since its inception, and eagerly await its return every July. Diverse and different are two adjectives that thematically and stylistically link most of Ossipee Valley’s band lineup. Saturday’s headliner is a prime example. Peter Rowan is a guitarist-singer-songwriter whose professional career began with Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys, the band that set the standard of the genre for many years. Rowan also did a stint with Old & In the Way, a side project led by Grateful Dead front-man Jerry Garcia. Over the course of his five-decade career Rowan has garnered five Grammy nominations. In recent years Rowan has been fronting his own bluegrass band, a four-man group that consists of dyed-in-the wool traditional players with more than 100 years of combined recording and performance experience. The band’s most recent CD is “Legacy,” released last fall. It features both traditional selections and “traditionally informed but fresh original songs.” Guest appearances by Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs and Gillian Welch testify to Rowan’s standing in the old-tome American music community. Stoddard, who does most of Ossipee Valley’s programming, also likes to spotlight female artists. Here are a few of her picks for 2011: • The Parkington Sisters hail from a family of musical traditions. Lydia, Rose,

Comment on this story at:


The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band headlines this weekend’s Ossipee Valley Music Festival.

Nora, Sarah and Ariel Parkington were raised in a wildly musical household, but despite their common musical backgrounds the sisters only formed their eponymous group six years ago in Provincetown, Mass. The Parkington Sisters ensemble combines five dynamic voices with five confident instruments. Lydia plays cello, Rose guitar and piano, and Ariel, Sarah and Nora play violin and viola. • Sierra Hull is one of the youngest, a singer-mandolinist who has been performing professionally since the age of 8 when she was featured at an International Bluegrass Music Association up-and-coming artists showcase. She has appeared in numerous IBMA teen showcases in recent years. Now a young adult, Hull recently released “Secrets,” her debut CD. • Red Molly is a trio of young ladies – one of whom is actually named Molly – who first harmonized together at a bluegrass festival in 2004. Liking their sound and feeling comfortable with each other’s styles, they formed Red Molly and have been touring bluegrass festivals and other old-time music venues since then. They’ve released three CDs. • Eilen Jewell is a Boston-based singersongwriter who has begun to visit Maine fairly frequently. Although she’s mostly promoting her own compositions these days, Jewell is thoroughly grounded in traditional country fare. One of her most recent recording projects was a tribute album of Loretta Lynn songs. The Ossipee Valley main stage runs

Thursday evening, all day Friday and Saturday and most of Sunday. There’s also a second stage, which mostly features New England performers, such as the Bagboys and the ski-country singer-songwriter duo of Thom Perkins and Kathy Bennett. Several competitions include the New England Flatpicking Championships and a songwriting contest. Food offerings abound and the general atmosphere is definitely both musical and merry. This is an alfresco affair, with tent available in case of rain. For the full schedule, visit www.osipee on the Internet.

‘La Fille du Regiment’ Over its decade and a half of presenting world-class professional singers in fully staged operas, PORTopera has only once before had an artist from Maine in the title role. This summer marks the second occasion. Bangor native Ashley Emerson will

star in Gaetano Donizetti’s “La Fille du Regiment” (“Daughter of the Regiment”) one of opera’s best-loved showcases for thrillingly melodic music and vocal fireworks. It’s also a homecoming for PORTopera. While a teen, Emerson got hooked on opera in 2003 when she won a part in the chorus the company’s production of “Lucia di Lammermoor.” Since then she’s pursued a career in singing and opera. Steps along her pathway to success have included the University of Southern Maine School of Music, where she studied with voice professor Ellen Chickering, and the Lindemann Young Artist Program of the Metropolitan Opera, which is led by Dona D. Vaughn, PORTopera’s founding stage director and now its artistic director. Emerson is now enjoying a career in professional opera and has landed roles at the Met and top regional companies. “Fille” is a high-spirited romp and an exemplar of the bel canto (Italian for “beautiful singing”) style. The title character is Marie, who was found years before as an orphan on a battlefield and was adopted by a regiment of soldiers. Now a beautiful young woman, Marie falls in love with the bravest and most handsome young warrior, a tenor played by Andrew Bidlack. There are complications. The most problematic is a proposed arranged marriage to a nobleman, the proverbial wrong man. But this is comic opera, and the situation is happily resolved in an exquisitely melodic fashion. “La Fille du Regiment” will be sung in its original French, with English supertitles. A full orchestra and chorus will be led by PORTopera veteran conductor Stephen Lord. There are two 7:30 p.m. performances at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: July 28 and July 30. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Brunswick Village from page 1 Swan. Swan said she is concerned that plans to construct a police station could be abandoned, and the buildings, which she does not believe are all beyond the point of repair, would have been unnecessarily demolished. Pat Scully, Brunswick’s attorney, argued that the board does not have to consider what comes after the demolition. “You have to limit yourself to, can the demolition go forward with the understanding that there would be some future economic development?,” he said. But board members, especially Swan, kept returning to the uncertainty about the future use of the property, even after

Larissa Darcy, president of the BDC, argued that regardless of what replaces them, just tearing down the buildings would improve the neighborhood. “It would be a disservice to leave them there, vacant, indefinitely, until something is proposed,” Darcy said. Anna Breinich, the town’s planning and development director, said the buildings have lost value over time. She added that the Maine Historic Preservation Commission has said the buildings are not eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. But that didn’t matter to board member Janet Roberts, who argued that being listed on the national register had nothing to do with whether the building contributes Planning Board, as well as on the part of landowners” who are applying to make a change to a building. One way to do that would be to include illustrations in the city’s ordinance, leaving less room for interpretation of language. “The historic resource of this community is important,” Upham said. “Some-

to the character of the Village Review Zone – a standard the board considers when voting to allow demolition. Swan said she didn’t care about 81 Pleasant St., which has been condemned, and 1 Stanwood St., on the corner. But she said 3 Stanwood St. and 85 Pleasant St., which are Greek revivals that have been altered through additions, fit in with the neighborhood. Claudia Knox, of Cumberland Street, was the only member of the public at the meeting. She encouraged the board to approve the demolition. “No matter how you slice it, these buildings are not going to stay long term, so why should you delay the inevitable,” she said. But the board unanimously voted to deny the BDC’s application, meaning the buildings will remain standing.

Following the meeting, Darcy said she was disappointed, but undeterred. She said the BDC would discuss at its August meeting whether to appeal the decision to the Zoning Board of Appeals, or to return to the Village Review Board with more information. In the past, the BDC has torn down abandoned structures in the interest of combating neighborhood blight. These included a warehouse at 10 Weymouth St., demolished in September 2009, and multi-unit apartment buildings at 2-4 Swett St. and 51 Mill St., torn down in October and November 2002, respectively. None of those properties were in the Village Review Zone.

have an ordinance that treats real historic properties one way, and less historic properties in a different way, and very unhistoric properties not at all.” Upham said he also hopes that the Planning Board will look into including historic properties not in the zone in the historic district review process. “That’s not uncommon,” he said. “I think Portland does a lot of that. They probably have a district, but they also have these individual properties that are extremely important that they would hate to lose.” Upham said the next step in the review process would be for the Planning Board to hold one of its pre-meeting workshops on the matter. The historic district runs from Leeman Highway north to Beacon and Bowery streets, east to the Kennebec River and west to High Street.

times it’s hard for people to grasp why is it that the city regulates what people can do, when they build a deck or change windows, and so forth. But the analogy I use (is), if a community’s economic vitality was based on the alewive fishery, the community would probably do everything it could to maintain a healthy fishery. “Well, part of (Bath’s) economy ... is based on the historic resource,” he continued. “... It would be foolhardy to allow people to mess that up. And so that’s a reason why we need to be regulating what goes on in this district.” He added that the standards might be changed for properties that are newer and not historic, but are located in the zone. “Maybe we don’t need to regulate what people do with a home in that district that was built in 1970 or 1980,” Upham said. “It’s not historic, and maybe we need to

Depot from page 3 frequently with that railroad’s dispatcher. Fournier estimated that the switching would mean it would take the train 40 minutes to travel from downtown the three miles. The discussion of the pros and cons of each location gave some residents had a feeling that NNEPRA still intends to put the depot on the Church-Stanwood property. “There’s a great place (at Cook’s Corner) and you guys are fighting hard to put it back in my backyard. Is there anybody who hasn’t noticed that except me?” asked Dan Sullivan, a Bouchard Drive resident. Anna Nelson, who also lives on Bouchard Drive, said in an interview that she believes NNEPRA is trying to convince neighbors that the ChurchStanwood site is the best choice. “It’s obvious that our location seems to make the most sense for them,” she said. But state Sen. Stan Gerzofsky, DBrunswick, assured residents that NNEPRA has not made a final decision. “I don’t think there is a decision ... about where anything is going to be at this moment, there is still room for discussion,” he said.

While the location may still be up in the air, NNEPRA’s engineering consultants also gave residents more concrete details about the facility. It would be wider than initially proposed, containing three tracks instead of two, a change that brings the building’s size closer to 60,000 square feet from an initial 40,000 square feet. NNEPRA Executive Director Patricia Quinn explained that expanding the width of the building to 107 feet would eliminate the need to have trains idling outside. “We wanted to build a facility that could accommodate all the equipment we currently use and could foresee potentially using, so we could keep it all inside,” she said. In the next few weeks, the engineers will obtain more details about the three sites, including noise levels, construction, and costs. They hope to present their findings to the NNEPRA board in August, so that the group can choose a site before fall. NNEPRA intends to have the depot operating by October 2012, in time for the expansion of Downeaster service from Portland.

Cedar Beach

Comment on this story at:

from page 1 to apply for the grant because ownership of a section of property where Robinhood Road meets Cedar Beach Road is unclear, and would require more research. With the deadline for the grant approaching, there isn’t time to clarify the

ownership, Nahf said. The group hoped to raise $285,000 from private donations to supplement the grant and money contributed by the town. The cost of the public easement had been set at $805,000, but Nahf said that price


is now moot. Initially, the Friends had been motivated by a Dec. 31, 2010, deadline imposed by town residents for resolving the access issues. After that date, the town’s ability to spend $220,000 would expire, and there would have to be another vote to reauthorize the spending.

Now the Friends have more time to secure access to the beach, although Nahf said they aren’t quite sure how. “While that still is our goal,” she said, “we don’t know quite how we’re going to reach it.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext.123 or Follow her on Twitter: @ guerinemily.

Cat rescue

Comment on this story at: 95579 000

from page 1 society from a hoarding situation. According to Karen Stimpson, executive director of the society, their owner had a penchant for rescuing abandoned cats and had accumulated close to 200, many kept in cages. Animal welfare officials found out about the situation, and have been working to convince the man to gradually give up his cats, a few dozen at a time. More than 150 remain at the house, and Stimpson said she hopes to rescue more as soon as there is space at the shelter. But the humane society was already crowded because a month earlier it had rescued more than 20 cats from another hoarding situation in Bowdoin. The elderly owner of those cats moved into hospice care, leaving more than four dozen cats behind. According to Lisa Smith, customer service and community relations manager for the Coastal Humane Society, cats either found their way to the house or were dropped off there by people who didn’t want them. When they were finally discovered by an animal control officer after the man left home, many had died, and others were running wild. Three were trapped in a washing machine. Most of those cats were hungry, but otherwise healthy, and Smith said many have already been adopted. But caring for the second round of

ringworm-infected cats has taken a financial toll on the shelter. Because ringworm, a fungus that manifests as athlete’s foot in people, is so contagious, the cats’ bedding, litter boxes, and food

The cats from the second hoarding situation aren’t quite ready to be adopted, but there are plenty of other cats to choose from. Volunteer Krisin Comee, who has been helping to treat the infected cats, set her sights on Sonny, a one-eyed white cat. “When kids see him,” she said, “they’ll go running.”
