Homeless students getting younger By Amber Cronin BRUNSWICK â€” The numbers of youth taking advantage of the Merrymeeting Project has remained stable over the past several years, but the age of homeless students taking
advantage has dropped in recent years. â€œFor my project, we serve school-age students, predominantly high school students that are couch surfing,â€? said Donna Verhoeven, director of the Mer-
rymeeting Project. â€œIâ€™ve been doing this for about 10 years now and the numbers have been about the same; the ages are getting younger though.â€? See page 16

Paul Clark, who with his girlfriend, Cari Peterson, closed on their new home on McKeen Street in June, said that the price of the former Navy housing offered the couple a chance to stay in Brunswick.
Former NAS homes selling at â€˜perfect price pointâ€™ By Beth Brogan, BDN BRUNSWICK â€” Paul Clark and his girlfriend, Cari Peterson, didnâ€™t think they could afford to buy a home in Brunswick. So even though they both work in town, when they decided to upgrade from their apartment they looked elsewhere. On Wednesday, Clark stood in his new, sunny living room on McKeen Street and glanced out the window at the tree-lined backyard. In June, Clark and Peterson closed on their four-bedroom home â€” one of the first of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station housing units to be sold
New Tedford Housing executive director Craig Phillips hopes to overcome funding obstacles by reaching out to the community.
New executive director aims to do more with less BRUNSWICK â€” Tedford Housingâ€™s new Executive Director has big plans for the company, hoping to work with limited funding to provide maximum services to Bruns-
wick and the surrounding communities. Craig Phillips came to Tedford Housing from Common Ties Mental Health Services in Lewiston and he hopes that
approaching services with a community-based mindset will help to expand the programs ability to help. See page 16
by owner George Schott. â€œWe thought these might be our one [way] into Brunswick,â€? he said. â€œThe day they hit the market, we saw this one and a ranch next door.â€? They moved in during the second week in July. So far, Schottâ€™s company, Affordable Mid-coast Housing, has closed on 15 homes â€” all on McKeen Street, a much-traveled public road that connects Maine Street and Church Road. Three more sales are â€œin the works,â€? and only one house on McKeen Street remains for sale. See page 22
Harpswell selectmen turn out the lights By Amber Cronin HARPSWELL â€” The Board of Selectmen voted to remove five streetlights and heard public comment on the legal status of Lower Road at the boardâ€™s Aug. 9 meeting. Last fall, the board voted to remove several unnecessary streetlights around town, even Index Arts Calendar ................15 Classifieds .....................19 Community Calendar.....15 Meetings ........................15
after residents complained that their removal could make roads unsafe. Residents were allowed to appeal the removal of the lights and on July 26, the board visited several of the lights to decide their fate. â€œSome lights have been removed because after the town
meeting, the town informed Central Maine Power that they could be removed until the board decided to halt and take more time to reconsider,â€? said Town Administrator Kristi Eiane. On Aug. 9, the board discussed the removal and heard concern from residents over the
fate of several lights. The board discussed moving pole 67.1, located on Hurricane Ridge Road, closer to the intersection with Route 123. Resident Linda Hall said that instead of moving the light to the intersection, it should be moved to a blind corner on the road.
â€œWhen you did your drive-by, you could see there is a corner near (the light) thatâ€™s a sharp 90 degree turn that is completely blind even in the daytime,â€? Hall said. â€œThe light is not (currently) at the corner and to be most compliant (with town policy),

Eveningstar Cinema expansion proposed By Amber Cronin BRUNSWICK — Local film aficionados may have a new place to take in independent films such as this year’s Oscar-winner “The Artist” or “Moonrise Kingdom” if funding for the expansion of Eveningstar Cinema comes through. For the past 20 years, the one-screen movie theater has provided audiences with a film experience unlike what they would experience at a chain theater, but when Barry Norman bought the Eveningstar two years ago, it was clear that more could be done to bring viewers a better experience. “When I bought it two years ago, one of the things I did not study is the need for more screens,” he said. “I thought one screen would be easier to manage but there is zero flexibility. With multiple screens there is so much more flexibility.” With only one screen Norman said that he often loses out on films he wants
to bring in because he has already committed to a six-week run with another film. Additionally, the physical size of the building poses problems for the 6’ 5” Norman. “The ceilings here are 5’ 6” and I’m 6’ 5” and I have to be an owner-operator, this is slowly destroying my physical health,” he said. The new building, if approved, will be located at Brunswick Station and, Norman hopes, will be a great draw for people taking the train into town. “I’m trying to build a brand-new art deco building hopefully at Brunswick Station,” he said. “Imagine someone coming off the train and stepping into Brunswick seeing that art deco marquee and building an immediate feel for the type of town the Brunswick is.” Funding for the project will be the continued page 3
The proposed expansion plans for Eveningstar Cinema add two screens and move the building out of the Tontine Mall and over to Brunswick Station.

Organizers expect between 5,000 and 10,000 people to come, weather permitting. “Maine Street and the mall is completely filled with people all day long,
providing we have good weather which we always have,” said Garovoy. “I think (right now) there is a 30 percent chance of rain and people are starting to panic, but that also means there is a 70 percent chance of sun.” The festival began in 2007 after three years of planning by Garovoy and a

SMCC gets medical device manufacturing grant By Amber Cronin BRUNSWICK — Continuing a longtime tradition of working with local employers to provide workforce training, a grant from the Maine Quality Center will allow Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) to provide training in the growing field of medical device manufacturing. “This is nothing new; we’ve been doing this with a lot of companies like Bath Iron Works and Moody’s Collision Centers,” said SMCC President Ron Cantor. “It’s something we hope to do more of because it helps the economy and helps people train for good jobs.” The $100,000 grant from the Maine Quality Center will help SMCC train 127 Mölnlycke Health Care employees post
hire. The company, which started construction on a new facility in Brunswick last June, manufactures medical devices. Jim McGowan, director of the Maine Quality Center, said the grant was awarded so that Southern Maine Community College could provide the expanding Mölnlycke Health Care with training that will help them through their expansion. “As an international company they’re going through a pretty sizeable expansion with the diversity and skill sets they are looking for requiring training,” he said. “The training will be helpful with both this company and the individuals throughout their careers.” Workers will receive training in jobspecific areas at little to no cost because of the grant. Courses are designed by col-
Gerzofsky nominated for Defense award BRUNSWICK — Senator Stan Gerzofsky recently called his nomination for the 2012 Defense Community Award (Policymaker/Elected Official of the Year) a “true honor.” The award honors leadership and the creation of partnerships between defense communities and the community at large as well as dedication and commitment to the community as a leader and advocate
for defense communities. Gerzofsky was nominated by Steve Levesque, executive director for the Mid-Coast Regional Redevelopment Authority, for his work during and after the closure of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station. The Association of Defense Communities will make a final decision on the award in the coming weeks.
lege faculty and outside experts and are offered either at the Mid-Coast campus or right at Mölnlycke Health Care, which is also located at Brunswick Landing. Cantor said that working with this up-and-coming company to help train workers is just another part of SMCC’s mission to help the Mid-Coast region. “In addition to what SMCC is well known for, our 45 degree and certificate
programs in South Portland, we do a lot of other things that some people might not realize,” he said. “Part of our mission as a college is to help businesses train the workforce to grow their business. To help people hone their skills.”
cil with his plans for the new building but he doesn’t expect approval to be an issue. “Until I have the financials (in order), I haven’t gone before the Town Council for approval, but I don’t anticipate that as a problem,” Norman said. “Why would anyone not want that theater? It’s nothing but a win-win for everyone involved.”

Local sexual assault prevention performance to tour By Marena Blanchard PORTLAND — Sex is a part of college life. Speak About It, a Portland-based theater company, is inspiring important conversations on campuses across the country. Starting in 2009 at Bowdoin College, Speak About it brings a custom performance to each college. Issues addressed by the show pertain to sexual assault, but in a way that the college audience can relate to. “This isn’t ‘here’s how you put a condom on a banana,’” said program producer, writer, and director Shana Natelson. “Everyone’s talking about sex but a lot of the education is outdated from high school. Or people get their ideas about sex from porn. We just want people to be responsible. We want people to talk about it in a healthy way. We want to have a conversation about having a conversation about having sex.” The show’s content prepares incoming freshmen by presenting situations that they may find themselves in and offering healthy advice on how to navigate them. Subjects include sexual consent, waiting for marriage, how to intervene on behalf of a friend, and pickup lines. The one-hour performance is a combination of skits, dialogue, and monologues with the material based on true stories solicited from actual students. Each show is tailored to the location, incorporating knowledge of food haunts, late night hangouts and culture from the area. Sexual Assault Response Services of Southern Maine has trained the performers, most of whom are peer educators. There are five roles that have been filled by 12-15 different actors. The current cast is Ellen Amirol, of Boston; Shana Natelson and Benjamin Row, both of
Portland; and Amanda Blaicher and Joe McLeod, both of Scarborough. The show is well-suited to college fall orientations but Natelson said they can perform it year-round. This year’s tour will bring them as far as the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Wash., and as near as the University of Southern Maine. Natelson also expressed the desire to modify the content for outgoing high school seniors sometime in the future. Speak About It will perform an open dress rehearsal 8 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012, at Bard Coffee, 185 Middle St., Portland. There is a suggested donation of $5. Marena blanchard is the Forecaster news assistant. She can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 115 or mblanchard@ theforecaster.net. Follow her on twitter: @soapboxnoise.

109 ways to torment yourself When it’s August and a parent is seven weeks into summer vacation, she will admittedly look for any opportunity to escape reality for few moments. This is how I, perhaps unNo Sugar fortunately, recently found myself in a local book store, flipping through the pages of a book filled with enlightening ideas on enriching one’s life. One of the suggestions was to make a list––a list of 109 things you’d like to be, do or have. Much like the infamous “bucket list,” it’s meant to provide you with a laundry list of goals to achieve before you do, indeed, kick the proverbial Sandi Amorello bucket. At first, this seemed like a rather clever (and entertaining) idea. And in fact, when I ventured out of town with my children on a short vacation days later, I found myself with pen and paper in hand one evening as I lounged around with time to relax—contemplating my list. Happily, my “things you want to have” portion of the list was brief—not because I have so many things, but because I’ve learned that owning too many things can often bring more suffering than joy. That’s not to say I didn’t list my
dream home, car, and fantasy wardrobe—I don’t profess to be a monk. And “things I’d like to be?” Well, that was rather simple—all I had to do was dig into my ever evolving cache’ of career dreams. Nothing difficult about that. Then I got to “things I’d like to do,” and my task became decidedly more arduous. What did I want to do in the next 50 years? (I plan on living a long time, clearly.) Climb Mount Everest? Swim with sea turtles? Learn to knit my own thermal underwear? Did I want to perform at the opening of the Olympics, like Paul McCartney? Or would the simple act of singing, “Let it Be” at a karaoke bar in Manhattan after a couple of glasses of cabernet enable me to die with no regrets? An avalanche of ideas fluttered through my brain. Sushi in Japan? Sex with Anthony Bourdain? Kissing Johnny Depp? Space travel? Lunch with David Sedaris? Would merely brushing up on my German instead of learning French feel like a cop-out in retrospect as I took my last breath? Do I want to ski in the Swiss Alps? Make my own pickled cabbage? Do a one hundred mile bike ride? Dance with penguins in the Antarctic? Sponsor a farm animal in a third world country? Get a belly button piercing? Suddenly, what began as an intoxicating exercise in creating the ultimate “to do” list became overwhelming. What about all of the things that I’d already “had, been and done?” Didn’t those count? Were you allowed to include things you’d done and then immediately cross them off?

Was there a “retroactive” clause? Or was that cheating? Had I started my list two decades ago, would I not have had a better chance at success? I got competitive and wondered, were other people’s lists more exciting? I began to feel lightheaded. And then, something wonderful happened: I realized that although there is nothing inherently wrong with the list of 109 things—I neither want nor need one. I mean, theoretically, I could be on my deathbed, look at my list, see by the missing black check marks that I’d obviously forgotten to take in a foster child—or grow my own rhubarb—and then what? I’d be trotting off into the afterlife feeling like a failure? No thank you. And then I thought of my late husband. I mean, how would Drew have felt had he excitedly scribbled down his list on his 40th birthday, only to have been informed shortly thereafter that he probably had a mere year or two to cross off all of those “to do” items? I imagine he would have been quite despondent. And really, when you’re terminally ill, you don’t need anything else to depress you. So I say, skip the lists. We make too many lists already.

LePage stands in the way of economic growth Maine was second nationally in the loss of public sector jobs as a percentage of public sector employment last year. This is a major factor in explaining why Maine was the only New England state whose economy shrank in 2011 and why Maine is near the bottom of all 50 states in job creation. Governor LePage and GOP colleagues in the legislature have stood in the way of the necessary economic stimulus. Turning a blind eye to the fact that Maine voters overwhelmingly backed a bond package designed to create jobs, the Governor has blocked release of these funds. Instead, the Governor and his colleagues have put a priority on passing tax cuts that will largely benefit the wealthy and implementing budget cuts that will hurt the most vulnerable. Even as the Governor likes to trumpet his independence, sadly this is very much in lockstep with the national priorities of an increasingly extreme GOP. I hope that the November elections start to turn the tide back to common sense leadership in Augusta. Myrick Freeman Georgetown

I, Colbert Though it has been a well-kept secret until now, I am the Stephen Colbert of Maine journalism. Colbert, of course, is the popular liberal comic who plays the part of a conservative political pundit for ironic effect on television. I, on the other hand, am a real life conservative who plays the part of a screaming liberal in print in order to subvert the liberal socialist agenda. In real life, I wear seersucker suits, wingtips and bow ties. The Universal As we race downhill to November headlong into the most critical election of my lifetime, I can no longer stand the pressure of undercover reportage. It’s time to come clean about what I really believe. To begin with, I am totally opposed to Obamacare. Not only do I believe that Obama is a radical foreigner, Edgar Allen Beem like all good Americans. I view his individual health insurance mandate as the end of the Land of the Free and the Home of Brave. In this country, it’s every man for himself, Mister. If you don’t have health insurance and you can’t afford to pay for health care you should just suffer and die. That, in fact, is the secret motto of the Tea Party – Suffer and Die. On Nov. 6, I’m going to vote for Mitt Romney because he’s so handsome and because has pledged to do whatever the people who elect him want him to do. Like all true conservatives, I like a handsome man with his finger in the wind. Flip-flopping is what America is all about. Mitt used to be in favor of a ban on the sale of assault weapons for example, but now that he understands that we conservatives are in favor of Second Amendment solutions, he’s afraid to support any kind of gun control. I will also be voting for superpatriot Secretary of State Charlie Summers for U.S. Senate, because Charlie is a veteran. He believes that every American has an obligation to serve in the military, even though less than 10 percent actually do. I’ll also be voting in the state senate race for Old Port Navy Seal
pizza parlor owner Chris Tyll. That Independent Dick Woodbury is a known compromiser. We need people in Augusta who’ll do what they’re told, no questions asked. Aye-aye, sir. Now that Angus King may look exactly like the late Republican state senator Roger V. Snow, but I knew Roger Snow, Angus, and you’re no Roger Snow. Anyway, I could never vote for a wind power developer. I am totally opposed to alternative energy. I’m a gas and oil guy. Solar and wind power are just liberal plots to weaken America while enriching themselves with feelgood energy policies. Stick that in your composting toilet and smoke it. I’m also very much in favor of the Keystone Pipeline. Fracking is a wonderful thing. It asserts man’s dominion over nature just like it says we should do in the Bible. We’ll pump whatever it takes into the ground to force that good old fossil fuel to the surface. Liberals talk about peak oil, but they haven’t seen anything yet. You help us elect Mitt Romney and we’ll be drilling onshore, offshore, and on the moon if we have to. Petroleum is what made this country great. Frack ‘em! When it comes to immigration reform, I favor a Just Say No, high fences make good neighbors approach. Unless we want to turn into a mongrel nation of Muslim Hispanic Creoles, we have to station an armed guard every 100 feet along the U.S. border. And I’m not just talking Mexico. Those socialist peaceniks up in Canadia will infiltrate Maine and pollute our gene pool if we don’t blockade the St. John River. Over the past two years, I have spent an inordinate amount of time and ink attacking Gov. Paul LePage, but now that my cover is blown, let me tell you how pleased I am that Boss Paul decided to come back from Canada. He is just what Maine needs – a tell-itlike-it-is let-the-chips-fall-where-they-may two-fisted hard-drinking Franco-American SOB. He made a fortune for Marden’s selling smoke-damaged tube socks and the skidders boys and the strippers at the Bob Inn just love the guy. Sure he puts his foot in his mouth every few days, but that’s because he thinks on his feet. Sometimes he even thinks WITH his feet. Paul LePage is the real Maine! And this, Gullible Reader, is the real me ;-) Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth. The Universal Notebook is his personal, weekly look at the world around him.

Albert Leroy Alley Sr., 93: a motivated provider, family man BATH — Albert Leroy Alley Sr., 93, died on Aug. 9. He was born in Portland on Oct. 11, 1918, the son of Ralph and Nellie (Verrill) Alley. He grew up in Bath and attended school there. But at a young age he left school in order to work in support of his family. Alley then held Alley Sr. several jobs around town, which included dishwashing and working at the Box Shop, The Coal Pocket and the Wood Shop. In 1938, he met Miriam “Betty” Coombs. The couple fell in love, married on July 12, 1939, and resided in Bath. A self-motivated man, Alley bought a hot-dog stand and did business on Main Street in Bath. His hot dogs were called the best in town. Later, Alley and his wife moved to Boston, where he worked for the Boston Naval Ship Yard. The couple then returned to Maine, and Alley was employed at Bath Iron Works as a ship fitter for many years, retiring in 1981. Alley was a family man and enjoyed
nothing more than spending time with his grandchildren. He also enjoyed the simple things in life, such as taking a ride to New Hampshire. He loved camping and taking in the wonders of nature. He will be sadly missed by all who loved him. Alley is predeceased by his wife of 64 years, Miriam, and two half brothers, Ralph W. Alley Jr. and Robert Alley. He is survived by a daughter, Catherine R. Hart, and her husband, Richard, of West Bath; son Albert L. Alley Jr. and his wife, Betsy, of Newport News, Va.; son Thomas E. Alley, of Bath; grandchildren Felicia Hart, Katrina Hart, Kristina Walsh and Edward Alley; granddaughter Suellen Worley and her husband, Michael; greatgranddaughter Cassandra Walsh; sisterin-law Dorothy Coombs, of Bath; cousin Charlotte Frost, of Gray; and several nieces and nephews.

Maineiax has it all for lax aficionados By Michael Hoffer A decade ago, for Deering’s Lauren Reid, one of the finest girls’ lacrosse players in the state of Maine, the concept of playing out of season or having the chance to display her game in front of coaches from elite programs out of state was virtually unheard of. “I had really great coaches and there were a ton of great athletes from Maine, just like other states, but there just wasn’t a platform to develop the way we deserved to,” Reid said. Fast forward to 2012. Reid, who spent a year at the University of Maryland, earning a trip to the Final Four in the process, before playing at the University of Massachusetts, is now in her fifth year as head coach at the University of Southern Maine. She is also the high school girls’ director of the Maineiax Lacrosse program, which provides exactly the opportunities Reid once lacked. Reid, along with USM men’s coach and high school boys’ director Sam Lane, Cape Elizabeth varsity girls’ coach and executive director Jeff Perkins and several more of the top coaches in the area, are ensuring that local girls and boys can play all year and have a chance to make their college dreams come true. The Maineiax lacrosse program has positioned itself as the most comprehensive program for the serious player, as well as those who just want to better their games. Per its website, maineiax.com, Maineiax Lacrosse is committed to the development and growth of Maine lacrosse, providing a full spectrum of programs from instructional clinics, camps and private lessons to recruiting services and tournament teams, while offering the best coaching Maine has to offer to all players, ages 9-18. “A lot of kids play soccer and hockey year-round, but lacrosse really hasn’t been offered in Maine, in one spot, year-round,” said Reid. “We offer you a la carte what you’re looking for, whether it’s instruction, pickup leagues, or trying out for a premier team that will go to recruiting showcases in the summer and fall as well. It’s important for kids who are taking lacrosse more seriously and if it’s becoming their first sport, helping them take it to the next level.” Perkins, who was named The Forecaster’s Spring 2012 Southern edition Coach of the Year after leading Cape Elizabeth to a perfect regular season and the
The Maineiax 2016 girls’ team, above, won their bracket championship at the Crimson Tournament at Harvard University this summer. Right: Girls (and boys) just want to have fun and the Maineiax program offers that up, in addition to top-level instruction and playing opportunities.
Western B Final, explained that Maineiax started from humble origins a few years ago but quickly mushroomed into something big. “We were looking around and parents got together and we put a couple teams together,” Perkins said. “We studied soccer programs from a club standpoint. We started with three boys’ teams and two girls’ teams. Youth teams. No high school at that time. That group has gone through and graduated. The 2012 boys were our first and oldest club team. As it grew, we went from five teams to 11 or 12. If we were going to do it, we knew we had to be better than what had been offered before. It’s all about the coaching and giving the ability to showcase the kids.” Lane grew up in Fairfield, Conn., an area with more of a lacrosse culture in place, and played at Washington College, a Division III school in Maryland, before coming to USM. Lane hoped to create a club program in Maine, but discovered Maineiax and quickly got involved. “Maine is so far behind everyone else,” Lane said. “The coaching isn’t there yet. That’s something we want to change. In other states, hotbeds, kids have year-round lacrosse. Fundamentals are perfect and kids are getting recruited. There’s no reason why Maine shouldn’t have that. Our year-round programs, combined with our coaching, will get kids get up to speed. We have year-round indoor and outdoor offerings, Sunday leagues, tournaments, clinics, private instruction.
“Ideally we want 20 kids on every club team. We want to have two teams at each group. We aim to have 50 kids at each camp. We want to have 100 kids on Sunday nights. It’s somewhat small compared to other clubs, but for Maine, it’s the leading club.” The fruits of the program’s labor produced some of the finest high school players in the state last spring. Both girls’ All-Americans (Cape Elizabeth’s Lauren Steidl and Falmouth’s Alex Bernier) and six of the eight boys’ AllAmericans (Cape Elizabeth’s Timmy Lavallee, Deering’s Karl Rickett, Falmouth’s Mike Ryan, Willy Sipperly and Mitch Tapley and Scarborough’s John Wheeler) also represented the club. Additionally, seven of 12 Western Maine Conference girls’ all-stars and eight of 12 boys’ all-stars also called Maineiax home. While that excellence is something the program touts, it also appeals to the less accomplished player with its offerings and coaching (a list which includes current and former varsity coaches like Cape Elizabeth’s Ben Raymond, Molly Moss and Jeff Thoreck, Scarborough’s Joe Hezlep and Marcia Wood and South Portland’s Tom Fiorini). Kait Johnson, who played
at U. Mass and Vermont and led Portland High’s girls’ team to a program-best 10 wins last spring, stressed that the coaches’ approach helps make Maineiax stand out. “It’s different from other club teams,” said Johnson. “You’ll go tournaments and hear coaches say something like, ‘Number 22 sub for number 42.’ We really get to know the girls and their families and what they want out of it. If they want to go D3, we help them do that. If they want to do D1, we help with that. If they don’t want to play in college, we offer support for their high school season. It’s geared toward the individual. We watch them grow.” Maineiax travel teams have really impressed of late. “Five years ago, we were losing 20-2,” Perkins said. “Now, we’re winning tournaments. The U-15 girls won two tournaments
and lost in the finals of another. Our 2013 team lost two games all season and made it to the championship game. It’s come a long way. We used to get slaughtered. Now we get coaches calling us interested in our players.” The program’s camps are another calling card. “It’s really about growing the sport through the Maineiax name and the camp part is huge,” Perkins said. “Next year it will explode. We had over 200 boys and girls in the summer. We had a team in every age group. We had two teams in the 13 boys’ age group. It’s catching on and growing. The hard part for all of us is figuring out what’s the right number.” Maineiax is even taking its camps on the road in an additional effort to grow the sport in the state. Camps were held in Gorham and Wells this summer and more are expected in 2013. “We have satellite camps, going out to towns who don’t have a great feeder program,” Reid said. “We’re putting ourselves out there. We’re happy to travel to towns and provide a place for kids to try lacrosse at a good rate. If they don’t have a stick, we’ll give them one for the camp. We want to grow the sport.” For the elite players, there is the option to use Maineiax as a tool for playing at the collegiate level. “It’s open to everybody, but it’s a great tool for kids who want to play in college,” Lane said. “The recruiting piece is such a whirlwind for kids. Having coaches as a connection to ask question is important. High school kids are playing for college coaches. Middle school kids are playing for high school varsity coaches. They’re getting a peek at the next level.” At the end of the day, Maineiax gives and receives and has allowed Reid to come full circle. “Being part of Maineiax helps get the USM name out as a great place to play in Maine,” Reid said.” I’ve reaped the benefits of giving back to the community. It’s been a very fulfilling job for me.” For more on Maineiax Lacrosse, visit maineiax.com.

DaPonte String Quartet to play ‘scandalous music’ By Scott Andrews The summer arts and entertainment season is starting to wind down, but there’s still plenty of time to catch some quality shows, and there are still plenty of quality shows on the upcoming calendar. One of the most intriguing is the “Scandalous” music festival, presented by the DaPonte String Quartet. In a series of three concerts, the four DaPontes will present “music that shocked the world” at a simply gorgeous venue, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. Maine State Music Theatre wraps up its 2012 season with one of the happiest and most tuneful Broadway shows ever written. The 1980 production of “42nd Street” was a long-running hit and copped the Tony Award for Best Musical. The Kotzschmar Memorial Organ has been a mainstay of Portland’s cultural life for 100 years, so its legion of local friends will be hosting a centennial birthday celebration. It’s also a sort of going-away party, too. Beginning this month, the beloved instrument will be dismantled and shipped out for a two-year refurbishing and rebuilding.
‘42nd Street’ Maine State Music Theatre is dropping the curtain on its 2012 season with a sensationally good professional production of one of the happiest, most tuneful and visually exciting Broadway musicals ever written, “42nd Street.” The 1980 Broadway show, with book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin, garnered eight Tony Award nominations and won two, including Best Musical. It’s a show-biz story set in the Great Depression. An aspiring young actress arrives in New York, hoping to land a job in the chorus line of the biggest show in town. She ends up the star, but only after Broadway’s reigning diva makes her exit. The plot is a bit trite, but the score — most of it from the 1933 Warner Brothers musical movie of the same name — is magnificent. And the choreography, by Michael Lichtfeld, takes MSMT to the proverbial next level. Director Charles Repole has assembled a wonderful cast, led by Alessa Neeck as the fresh young ingenue from the boonies, longtime MSMT favorite Karen K. Edissi as the aging diva and Patrick Ryan Sullivan as the strong-willed producerdirector. Other fine performances in smaller roles are by Tyler Hanes as the juvenile, Raymond Marc Dumont as the director’s harried assistant, Charis Leos as a kindhearted actress and Mara Newberry as a worldly chorine. There’s a pit crew of eight musicians; under the direction of Jason Wetzel, they have a large, lush sound that suggests a much larger orchestra. Maine State Music Theatre presents

Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ The Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ are celebrating a centennial and saying goodbye over the next week. The centennial refers to the magnificent instrument itself, which debuted in the newly built Portland City Hall in the summer of 1912. The gigantic organ was the gift of Portland-born publishing magnate Cyrus H.K. Curtis, who wanted to honor the memory of his childhood music teacher, Herman Kotzschmar. The namesake was a German-born musician, composer and pedagogue who was the leading figure in Portland’s cultural life in the latter half of the 19th century. The goodbye refers to the fact that shortly after the week-long celebration, the “Mighty Kotzschmar” will be dismantled and shipped out for refurbish-
ing and a total rebuilding — a two-year process. There are six concerts, starting Aug. 17 and ending Aug. 22. Guest organists include visitors from around the world. The culmination of the concert series is the Aug. 22 “Kotzschmar Gala Centennial,” which features Portland’s municipal organist Ray Cornils and the Kotzschmar Festival Brass, which mostly comprises members of the Portland Symphony Orchestra’s brass section. There are also six “Festival Highlights,” which include lectures, demonstrations and a community sing-along. These run Aug. 18 through Aug. 21. For full details, call FOKO executive director Kathleen Grammer at 553-4363 or visit foko.org.
DaPonte String Quartet Something scandalous is happening with the DaPonte String Quartet, one of Maine’s premier classical music ensembles.
Through August 26

E E FR
Are their pizzicatos laced with peccadilloes? Is the violist on performanceenhancing drugs? Is the cellist doing all-night raves with Lindsay Lohan? Not exactly. But if you’d like to hear three nights of “music that shocked the world,” head for Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens for the DaPontes’ “Scandalous Music Festival,” which runs Aug. 22, 26 and 29. The selection of pieces embraces three centuries and several different schools and styles. Composers include Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann, Maurice Ravel, Arnold Schoenberg, Benjamin Britten and Astor Piazzolla. Also included are the Broadway team of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart — and even a number of improvised pieces based on audience suggestions. “Scandal” is the common theme. In some cases, the scandal is in the back story, such as Brahms’ “Agathe” sextet, a magnificent piece which was written out of guilt and surreptitiously dedicated to a woman the composer had jilted. Brahms also had a crush on Clara Schumann, wife of the famous composer — and a famous pianist in her own right. There’s something sub rosa going on in the back story of the “Piano Quintet,” which the composer wrote for his wife’s performance. In other cases, the scandalous material is in the work itself. For example, Ravel’s “Chansons Madecasses” uses erotic love poetry by third-world poets, the racier the better, to point up what he considered the sexually repressed prissiness of American high society. There was a riot at its 1926 Washington premiere. Tame by today’s standards, it’s also a gorgeous piece of seldom-performed music. In “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” Rogers and Hart describe the louche cultural milieu and loose moral standards of New York’s nightclub scene in their ground-breaking 1940 Broadway musical, “Pal Joey.” The festival concludes with two unusual musical adventures. Even by today’s standards, the tango is considered a sensuous and provocative dance form. The DaPontes will perform “Four Tangoes” by Piazzolla, an Argentinean composer who invented the “Nuevo Tango” by infusing the traditional tango with jazz and other Western musical elements. That will be followed by a unique performance, described as “improvisations on a scandalous theme,” which will use subjects provided by the audience. Four guest artists join the quartet: pianist Jeffrey Goldberg, cellist Joshua Gordon, violist Lila Brown and soprano Karol Bennett. Festival performances are at 7:30 p.m., Aug. 22, 26 and 29, at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, on Barters Island Rd. in Boothbay. Call 633-4333 or visit daponte.org.

Homeless from page 1 Her program sees between 35 and 40 homeless students, usually between the ages of 14 and 17, throughout the year, most of them are doubled up with family members or friends. She said that she believes there are even more young people in the community that aren’t being reached. “There’s a stigma associated with identifying yourself as homeless,” she said. “These kids want to run under the radar because they don’t want to be reported; they want to blend. Go to school and do their thing.” Verhoeven said that the major impetus for the upward trend in youth homelessness is family issues such as eviction or abuse. John Bradley, associate director of Preble Street in Portland agreed, saying that a major factor has to do with the family unit.
“Families are under a lot of stress and issues or concerns with substance abuse and mental health can really fracture families,” he said. “It’s also exacerbated by a lot of what is going on in the economy that puts stress on families that are already struggling.” Additionally, both Verhoeven and Bradley said that there are not as many resources in place to help teens as there are for adults. “There are more services for adults that are homeless,” Verhoeven said. “It is difficult to house a teenager and give them the support they need.” Preble Street’s Lighthouse Shelter and Teen Center has also seen an increase in activity over the past several years. In the month of June, the Lighthouse Shelter saw 43 unduplicated youth and took in 11 new homeless youth while 29 were turned away due to the 16 bed shelter reaching capacity. “We’re in the process of expanding our size from 16 beds to 24 because we’ve had to turn youth away,” Bradley said. “

We only turn away 18 or over, anyone 17 or under is always a priority. The older kids can go to another shelter.” Bradley said that there are several programs in place between the teen shelter and the teen drop-in center which focus on meeting the needs of homeless youth. The shelter offers young people a place to stay while the teen center focuses more on creating and fostering relationships that can help young people transition out of homelessness. Similar to Preble Street’s Teen Center, the Merrymeeting Project focuses on maintaining positive relationships with the students they serve. “We try to look at them holistically.” said Verhoeven. “Even though my program is education based we look at the whole student. They are not going to thrive if they don’t have the basic pieces of their life put together or planned for.” During the intake process at Merrymeeting, students from RSU 1, SAD 75 and the Brunswick School Department talk with employees about all “life arenas” and pinpoint ways that they would
August 17, 2012
be able to life on their own and support themselves. Where appropriate, some students are reunited with their families but the major goal of the project is to keep kids safe and in school — to make sure they have post secondary plans or a support plan so they can be connected with appropriate services. “We take baby steps,” said Verhoeven. “A lot of these kids have been disappointed by many adults during their lives. We’re careful about maintaining a positive relationship with students.” Amber Cronin can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-3661 ext. 125. Follow her on Twitter @croninamber.
Director from page 1
“Tedford not only provides shelter services, but also provides permanent supportive housing for the Mid-Coast, Lewiston-Auburn and Augusta,” he said. “My plans are to get to know the community more and the people who have been our partners and vendors and assess where the organization has been in terms of its mission in the last three or four years and work with the board and staff to see what future plans they might want to get involved in.” He said that, as with many non-profits in the human services field, funding will be the biggest callenge but with community outreach he hopes to work around that. “I want to continue to inform the community about what the needs of children, youth and adults who are homeless in the Mid-Coast area and find out how the community may respond,” he said. —Amber Cronin

Lights out from page 1 the light should be at the corner. If it’s a toss up, why don’t we leave it where it is, but ideally it should be at the corner because there is no pole there.” The Board voted to remove four other poles in addition to the pole on Hurricane Ridge Road, but voted to keep two others – one on Harpswell Neck Road and the
other on Merriconeag Lane. Several residents also turned out to help determine whether or not Lower Road is, in fact, a town maintained road. “It seems that all the research I’ve done, there is a lot of proof it’s a town road,” said Road Commissioner Ron Ponziani. “It’s been maintained for many years.” Ed and David Johnson spoke about the many years the town has maintained the road, saying that ever since both of them

can remember the town has maintained the road. After much debate, the Board referred the legal status to town attorneys. “We’re all basically agreed that we want to go on doing what we’ve been doing, maintaining the road,” said Board Chair Ellie Multer. “We just have to tie up the strings to do it.” Amber Cronin can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-3661 ext. 125.

NAS homes from page 1 Two weeks ago, Schott began taking deposits on houses on three roads inside the 231-home McKeen Street neighborhood, where road crews continue to work on upgrading water lines and asphalt so the town of Brunswick will accept them as public roadways. “It’s moving right along,” Schott said Wednesday. “It’s been very interesting and very exciting.” Duplexes in the neighborhood list at $104,500 for a duplex, and single-family 4 homes, depending on the number of bed-
rooms, at $139,500 to $154,500. “They moved so quickly because they’re at the perfect price point,” said David Gleason of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, who is listing the homes for Schott. “A very affordable home, and at a price range where the buyers are.” Most of the new owners are retired or are “younger people just starting out” who have just purchased their first home, he said. Gleason also sold Jana Profenno her home, a Colonial just up McKeen Street from Clark. She closed on July 17. “This is perfect,” she said Tuesday, pointing to hardwood floors that line the

She already is charmed by the Brunswick farmer’s market, she said, and by her neighbors, who she met before they moved in. “It’s just such a great place,” she said. “I feel so safe. It’s a cute little town.” In October 2010, George Schott outbid the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, the entity charged with redeveloping the former Brunswick Naval Air Station, for approximately 700 housing units in various neighborhoods in Brunswick and Topsham. At the time, town and redevelopment officials raised concerns about how

downstairs. Profenno, in her 40s, grew up in Freeport and moved back to the area after 16 years away. She works in Portland, and searched for a home there, “but being single, and in the restaurant business, my income didn’t allow me to get what I was looking for,” she said. Her new house boasts three bedrooms — big enough for her oversized furniture — two baths, and plenty of closet space for her guilty pleasure: 50 to 75 coats and jackets. When the McKeen Street homes came on the market, Profenno called Gleason, saw the homes the next day, and signed that afternoon.

with his development plans and integrating the housing units into the community,” Levesque said. “His plan for McKeen Street affordable housing for young families is right in line with the strategy for the housing that was developed” early in the redevelopment process. What could have been more troublesome, Levesque said, were rental units in the various complexes, but he added that the issue has been addressed and is “water under the bridge” because most of the rental units are occupied. But Schott said about half of the McKeen Street rental units are occupied — he’s concentrating on roadwork in the
from page 22 Schott would market the homes, and the impact that strategy would have on the local real estate market. Clark, a Realtor, said that at weekly staff meetings, his colleagues at Morton Real Estate agree that the addition of the former Navy homes has not affected the housing market because Schott “has been doing it slowly, and keeping them at the appraised value.” MRRA executive director Steve Levesque concurred. “We’re pleased they’re moving along
other areas of the neighborhood. And although sailors from the USS Michael Murphy, under construction at Bath Iron Works, moved from Schott’s rental housing in Brunswick on July 1 onto the ship, Schott said he expects new Navy personnel to occupy those units over the next several years as BIW builds four additional ships under contract. The former Navy housing in Topsham is even more successful, Schott said, with an 80 percent occupancy rate in the rental units. “Things are going better than I had hoped,” he said.

Brunswick Police Chief Richard Rizzo said Tuesday that his officers have noted the housing “seems to be filling up, with a lot more activity in the area and more cars in the driveways &...
