Harpswell officials consider single-sort recycling

“There was nothing we could do at that point,” Allen said. Allen and Landry tried to steer the boat away from ledges, other boats, and docks as the catamaran blew through moored boats toward the shore. Allen said the boat was moving pretty fast in the wind because “that thing’s like a big sail.” In what Allen described as a miracle, Bearcat II only collided with seven other boats, with minimal dam-

By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — Town officials are considering changes that may boost the recycling rate. But the cost benefit to taxpayers is uncertain. Harpswell now recycles 47 percent of its total waste stream, well over Maine’s statewide recycling rate of 38.5 percent, according to State Planning Office statistics. While the town’s rate is impressive, the way Harpswell recycles hasn’t changed since the 1970s, according to George MacDonald, waste management and recycling program manager at the State Planning Office. According to MacDonald, Harpswell had one of the first drop-off recycling centers in Maine. Over the years, the range of what can be recycled has expanded, but the town facility is fundamentally the same: Residents sort through their own recyclables, dropping them into the appropriate chute. Then recycling center employees bale the recyclables and sell them. That system has worked well for years, and aggressive education about recycling has helped boost the town’s recycling rate. But in the past

The 65-ton catamaran Bearcat II sits on the sand at Mackerel Cove in Harpswell after breaking loose from its mooring on Sunday night during Tropical Storm Irene.

‘It could have taken out a whole dock’ Irene beaches 65-ton catamaran By Emily Guerin HARPSWELL — Sheer luck prevented a mooring problem from becoming a disaster when a 65-ton catamaran broke loose in Mackerel Cove during Tropical Storm Irene. Bearcat II, owned by Charles Bennett of Toronto, had been moored in Mackerel Cove all summer and was there when the storm hit on Sunday

night. Around midnight, Scott Allen, the boat’s operator, who was on shore, watching the boat ride out the storm, saw the catamaran start to move around. Allen said he believes a shackle on the mooring let go, but he’s not sure why the boat broke loose. After noticing the boat start to move, he and another man, Roger Landry, jumped into a skiff and motored out, only to find that the catamaran’s engines were tangled with rope and wouldn’t start.

Backing up the Blue Angels: Hey, hey, hey, it’s Fat Albert Hurricane Irene puts damper on Brunswick air show ticket sales

Diane Hudson / For The Forecaster

The Blue Angels practice their demonstration on Friday afternoon before the gates open at the Great State of Maine Air Show in Brunswick.

By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Just after 3 p.m. on Friday, Casey Brey’s feet floated 6 feet off the ground. But only for a second, before the U.S. Marine Corps staff sergeant came crashing back down to the belly of Fat Albert, the Blue Angels support plane, a big grin on his face. The Fat Albert crew members are the techies in the elaborate,

airborne play that is a Blue Angels demonstration. They fly equipment and people between air shows, make last-minute dashes to other air fields if a part is needed, and stay on the ground while the six F-18 pilots rip through the sky. While the Fat Albert guys are usually in the background, they See page 23

Back to school: New leadership team in RSU 1 By Alex Lear BATH — Regional School Unit 1, like nearby School Administrative District 75, is starting its 2011-2012 year with two new people at the helm.

Comment on this story at:

Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Prior to that he was principal at Phippsburg Elementary School from 2000-2004, and an assistant principal and athletic director at Wiscasset High School.

Patrick Manuel replaced William Shuttleworth as superintendent July 1. The Topsham resident was previously assistant superintendent of Regional School Unit 21, which includes Arundel,

Wayne Dorr started Aug. 1 as RSU 1 assistant superintendent, replacing Bob Young. Dorr was interim superintendent in Camden-Rockport – where Shuttleworth is now superintendent – and previously was curriculum director for School Union 47, which consolidated with Bath in 2008 to form RSU 1.

Manuel said one of his key goals is to “establish an efficient transition of leadership that keeps the focus on student

achievement.” He said he also wants to develop collaborative relationships with staff, the School Board and the community, something he has been able to work on this summer. He said it’s important to be “very visible and (get) to know people on a personal level.” “Everybody has a different ... role in the educational process here, and it’s my job to try to balance those roles and be supportive, but also address concerns that people may have,” Manuel said.

News briefs Legislators schedule Brunswick office hours

BRUNSWICK — State Sen. Stan Gerzofsky, D-Brunswick, and Rep. Charlie Priest, D-Brunswick, will hold office hours Saturday, Sept. 3, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Little Dog Coffee Shop on Maine Street. Anyone who would like to talk about issues with the local legislators is welcome.

MRRA gets funds for facility upgrades

BRUNSWICK — The Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority received a $1.7 million federal grant from the Economic Development Administration. The grant will help fund infrastructure and facility improvements on the former Brunswick Naval Air Station, including $717,500 to assist Kestrel Aircraft in purchasing and installing a paint bay and related ventilation systems, and just over $700,000 for building demolition. The remaining $276,000 will be used for life safety code and ADA improvements, and utility metering. Jeffrey Jordan, deputy director of MRRA, said there are several “really tired buildings” on the base that have no civilian re-use value. Last week, Rep. Chellie Pingree, DMaine, announced that Brunswick Executive Airport would receive more than $4 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to acquire snow removal equipment, and improve utilities and runway lighting.

Vacant Brunswick lot to become green, low-cost housing By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — A weedy, vacant lot on the corner of Cushing and Cumberland streets is being transformed into an energyefficient affordable housing development. Habitat for Humanity and the Greater Brunswick Housing Corp. are teaming up to build a three-unit condominium project across from the Tedford shelter. While the groups have worked together before on single-family homes, like Hamilton Place in Harpswell, this is the first time they’re building condominiums, according to Peggie Siegel, director of development and communications at Habitat for Humanity/7 Rivers Maine. Greater Brunswick Housing Corp. is the developer and selected the contractors, while Habitat is the project owner. Ultimately, the three families that Habitat chooses to live in the units will become the owners of the homes. The family selection process can take up to nine months, and thus far only one family has been chosen. Families selected by Habitat usually have to work alongside contractors and volunteers to build their future home, but Siegel said this project was different. “These families are going to be doing sweat-equity for other non-profits or for us in some capacity,” she said. The families may also help with the finish work or construction of storage sheds. All three must meet income and credit guidelines to qualify, and must be employed so that they can repay a low- or no-interest mortgage.

The mortgages are subsidized by the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program, created as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The goal of the project is to revitalize areas affected by foreclosure and abandonment. The downtown Brunswick project qualified because it is replacing a vacant lot, according to Martin Szydlowski, director of housing development at the Greater Brunswick Housing Corp. The federal funding allowed Habitat to reduce the price of the units to around $100,000, according to Szydlowski. In addition to being affordable, the new condos are also energy efficient. Steven Theodore, the project architect from Arrowsic-based Theodore & Theodore, said the units will be highly insulated, which will reduce heating costs for the residents. The buildings will be positioned facing south for better natural heating and cooling, and have efficient propane boilers to heat water on demand, instead of traditional hot water heaters, which keep water hot all day long. Around the outside of the buildings, Theodore envisions edible landscaping like blueberry bushes and fruit trees. There will also be garden space and covered outdoor porches. He said the buildings would fit in with the character of the densely populated neighborhood and would resemble older Brunswick homes. Construction began in early August and should be completed by the winter, allowing the families to move in shortly thereafter.

Literacy group offers free help to adults By Alex Lear BATH — While it’s the time of year for kids to go back to school, there are still millions of adults across the country who lack key educational building blocks, such as being able to read beyond a third-grade level. Tri-County Literacy, a non-profit organization that offers literacy programs to adults and families in Lincoln and Sagadahoc counties, and northeastern Cumberland County, wants to lend a hand, confidentially and for no charge. “It’s always in a public place, and it’s always in a place that can be accessed by the learner,” said Darlene Marciniak, executive director of Tri-County Literacy.

A recent press release from the Bathbased organization noted that many adults find ways to hide their difficulty with reading from their families, friends and coworkers. They might find an excuse to avoid reading aloud, or hide their writing from other people, or commit information to memory so that they don’t have to write things down. “As children and teens go back to school, this is the perfect time for adults in need of educational services to take this important step to simply ask for help,” Marciniak said. “Our organization helps adults of any age and any educational background to address their literacy challenges.”

Comment on this story at:

She estimated that nearly 10,000 adults in Tri-County’s service area could be potential users of the organization’s services. People who need help or are willing to offer tutoring services can contact Suzanne Gastaldo, coordinator of TriCounty Literacy’s Volunteers Program, at 443-6384 or toll-free at 877-885-7441. She can also be reached by email at Tri-County Literacy, which helped more than 180 adult learners in the past year, is affiliated with the ProLiteracy

network. The network is composed of adult literacy and basic education organizations geared toward increasing adult literacy rates throughout the U.S. Tutors volunteer to work one-on-one or in small groups with those requiring help with basic reading, comprehension, writing and math skills, English as a second language, GED preparation, basic computer literacy and health literacy. ProLiteracy has 1,000 member programs in the U.S. and works with organizations in more than 30 developing countries. Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or Follow him on Twitter: @learics.

Inaugural Portland Brew Festival on tap this weekend By Randy Billings PORTLAND — For most people, Labor Day is the unofficial end to the summer. A time when kids go back to school and parents swap their shorts and T-shirts for pants and sweaters. But for beer lovers, Labor Day marks the beginning of fall beer season. A time when citrus-infused microbrews give way to darker concoctions – nutty brown ales, smoky porters and smooth stouts. For the last 18 years, beer drinkers have had to wait until November to sample what Maine breweries have to offer in one place. But this year, beer lovers will be able placate their palate at not one, but two, local beer festivals. The Portland Brew Festival, a two-day event that organizers hope will become an annual Labor Day tradition in the Old Port, makes its debut this weekend at the Portland Co., 58 Fore St. There will be two sessions on Saturday, from noon to 3:30 p.m. and 5-8:30 p.m., and a Sunday session from noon to 3:30 p.m. Mak Sprague, whose parents own the Portland Co., said he has helped organize flower and boat shows in the

25,000-square-foot, waterfront facility. “These buildings are empty in the summer, because all the boats are moved out,” Sprague said. “So, we’re going to move in a beer festival in the summer.” Sprague said there will be around two dozen breweries and more than 75 beers to sample. The Portland Brew Festival will come two months before the Maine Brewers Festival, which has been held for the last 18 years at The Portland Expo. Jay Riley, who owns Brewfest LLC, which has organized the event for the last three years, said he is glad that breweries have another opportunity to showcase their skills. Riley said he does not think the new event will reduce attendance at his festival, which is scheduled for Nov. 4-5. “I don’t look at this community and think it has been saturated with too many events that help expose the beauties and wonders of craft beers,” he said. “I don’t think it’s competition that is going to hurt us.” Both organizers noted differences that will distinguish the events.

Do you LOVE pleasant surprises? Prepare for “wow.” Stunning images, premium-quality products, & first-class service.


Comment on this story at:

At Riley’s event, tickets cost $32, which includes 12 tickets for four-ounce samples. Ticket’s for Sprague’s event cost $30 (though coupons can be found in the Old Port, online and in print), but attendees get 24 tickets for two-ounce samples. Sprague said he is offering a greater number of smaller samples because the event will be more diverse than a typical brew festival. While Riley’s event focuses solely on Maine brewers, Sprague’s event will include regional breweries. And rather than only featuring beers, Sprague said beer will only account for half of the liquid libations – the rest will be ciders and meads. “Hopefully, folks will be a little more adventurous and try out some of the brands and brews they haven’t tried before,” he said. But the biggest difference between the two events, Sprague said, will be the live brewing demonstrations. “I’m into festivals up and down the east coast, but I’ve never been to a beer festival before where they’re actually brewing beer live at the event,” he said.

beer using electricity inside the event, and if weather permits on Saturday, a group called Portland Mash Maniacs will demonstrate propane-brewing technique outdoors, he said. Also, Sprague said his sister is planning on demonstrating a tractor-powered cider press that he built with his father, Phin Sprague. “This thing is pretty ridiculous looking,” he said. “And it goes through apples faster than you can shake them out of a tree.” While the Maine Brewers Festival in November features live music from local and national acts, Sprague said his festival will have WBLM radio broadcasting live. The lower volume should allow more interaction and discussion with brewers, he said. Sprague said he is starting small this year, but has plenty of room to expand. Upwards of 150 booths can be accommodated in five available buildings, he said. “I’ve been brewing beer and cider now for a while,” Sprague said. “So I really wanted this to be about all the amateurs like me, who like doing this stuff in the kitchen.”

Any port, or garden, in a storm There’s nothing like a little hurricane to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the level-headed from the crazy. Being a woman who finds little reason to follow the weather (I prefer to open my eyes in the morning and No Sugar allow mother nature to surprise me), I am often in the relative dark about potentially important events such as hurricanes, until a few days before their arrival. In all of my decades of East Coast living, the most I’d ever done to prepare for storms had been to close windows, charge electronic devices, and perhaps tie down a lawn chair or two. FindSandi Amorello ing comfort in the fact that we always have matches on hand to light our sizable candle collection, granola bars in the cupboard, and a few bottles of Pellegrino on top of the fridge, I’ve found no reason to take more drastic measures. Of course, that was before a storm blew a sizable tree onto our house. Having a 40- or 50-foot conifer land on your roof at midnight can change your perspective on storm preparation. Considerably. But even with the tree disaster, I shall still never become one of those kooky “storm people.” You know who I mean: the people who make multiple, desperate rushes


to the grocery stores, cleaning out the non-perishable aisles. Hogging all of the bottled water, peanut butter, Doritos, Ding-Dongs, and D batteries. With a crazed look in their eyes, they are frequently featured in pre-storm TV news clips (leaving the rest of us to wonder whether they are privy to secret information about Armageddon). Their shopping carts overfloweth, and you suspect that were anyone to get too close to their V-8 stash, they’d pull a handgun from the pocket of their slicker. These people are not stable. What is it about an impending storm that intrigues us so? What primal force lies within us, making us simultaneously fear the awesome energy of mother nature, remain riveted to The Weather Channel for 24 consecutive hours, and be visibly disappointed when the promised mega-storm is downgraded, peters out early, or reroutes and misses us entirely? My boys woke up on the day of Irene’s arrival, looked outside through the window at the drizzle and relatively tame winds, and sighed at the lack of drama. “Oh, man, is this it? We wasted the entire day yesterday working around here, and all we get is this?” Like kids anticipating gifts under the tree on Christmas morning, they had gone to bed imagining opening their eyes to an adventurous scenario, combining “The Wizard of Oz” and “The Poseidon Adventure”: Toto would be blowing through the air, and scuba equipment would be required to get from our house to the pizza place. Of course, we wouldn’t have wanted to witness another tree falling on our blissfully happy home, or watch

Comment on this story at:

helplessly as one of our beloved cats was launched into the stratosphere, but I must say, after all of the hype, I, too, longed for a tad more excitement. Even the television weather personalities seem disappointed when the predictions don’t go quite as planned. They began waxing nostalgic about what could have been: “Well, Tiffany, things are looking much better than anticipated, but had this been a storm of the magnitude originally predicted, the tidal surges we’re seeing right now could have really done some damage.” You almost pity them. This is the high point of their weather year, or, perhaps, career. And the wind has literally been knocked from their sails. You can almost see a tear in the corner of their collective eye when their originally dramatic predictions fall a bit short. Although I now take storm preparation more seriously, I still have a slightly relaxed take on the whole thing. For instance, while some people in southern Maine were in a state of near panic on Saturday afternoon, I was off picking flowers at the local farm, imagining how pretty they would look as my children and I ate our granola bar dinner by candlelight, as the wind and rain howled outside our windows. As with the rest of life, it’s all about your perspective. No Sugar Added is Cape Elizabeth resident Sandi Amorello’s biweekly take on life, love, death, dating and single parenting.

Mainers can handle voter registration changes By Rep. Heather Sirocki You’re not smart enough to vote. Based on their rhetoric over the past few weeks, that seems to be what the Maine People’s Alliance and other fringe left-wing groups think of you. They’re pouring a huge amount of money and resources into a campaign to force a people’s veto on recently passed legislation dealing with voter registration. I voted in favor of LD 1376, which has now been signed into law. It takes the simple, reasonable step of requiring voters to register to vote at least two business days before Election Day, thus eliminating same-day registration. Sirocki The bill was prompted by growing pressure on election officials around the state who, in recent years, are being asked to do more with less. Ever since state law was changed to allow absentee voting for no reason other than convenience, clerks have been inundated with last-minute absentee ballots and registrations. When the legislation was being considered in Augusta, a Maine Town and City Clerks Association official testified that this “literally leaves us no time to set up our polling places properly and prepare our voting lists the day before an election. When a person registers before Election Day, the voter registrar has ample time to solve any problems beforehand and better serve the

voter.” The new law is a step toward joining the mainstream when it comes to voter registration deadlines. Most states require their residents to register weeks before Election Day. In Massachusetts, for example, voter registration shuts off 20 days before the election. In New York and 16 other states, the cutoff is a full month. Even liberal California closes registration two weeks in advance of an election. Maine, even with its new two-day deadline, will still have one of the most accommodating systems in the country. But you would never know that if you listened to the Maine People’s Alliance and other groups behind the people’s veto drive. Recently, they turned in what they hope will be enough signatures to force a vote on whether to repeal the law this November. In the course of their campaign, they have been using words like “disenfranchisement” and “voter suppression” to make their case. Really? Asking voters to make sure they are registered two days before Election Day is voter suppression? This notion is absurd when you consider that you still have 247 business days a year to register. All you need to do is go your town or city hall, fill out the form and you’re done. If you can’t do that, you can register at any Bureau of Motor Vehicles office or any of the state’s social services agencies. If all of that fails, you can call

Comment on this story at:

your local municipal office and request the registration form by mail. Does this sound like “disenfranchisement” to you? The people’s veto supporters also claim that certain groups, such as the elderly, will be unfairly affected by the new law. This is also untrue. State law requires municipal clerks to visit every nursing home and residential care facility in their district prior to an election and give all residents an opportunity to register. It’s also important to note that if you are already registered to vote and haven’t moved, none of this affects you. And if you have moved within your city or town, you can update your address on Election Day. On one point, I agree with the backers of the referendum. Compared to most other states, Maine’s voter turnout is very impressive. They attribute that, in large part, to the availability of same-day registration. But statistics tell a different story: Same-day registration was first introduced in Maine in 1973. Voter turnout in the decades preceding and following that year has remained virtually the same. It is a strong commitment to civic duty and awareness of candidates and issues that get Mainers to the polls, not the perceived convenience of same-day registration. And I believe it’s an insult to suggest that Maine residents are incapable of fulfilling the simple requirements needed to cast their vote. Maine state Rep.

Beem uses too wide a brush on colleges I was pleased to see several favorable letters regarding Edgar Allen Beem’s column, as they reflected my usual reaction to his ideas and opinion. But alas, when I read “Education for Suckers” I was reminded how easy it is for even articulate and informed columnists to succumb to their biases and their ignorance of factual information. He begins by castigating certain for-profit institutions for extracting tuition dollars, pointing out how several

have recently run afoul of federal regulations regarding recruitment and financial aid practices, and suggesting that any actual education they may provide is a by-product of their means of gaining profit from unsuspecting students. He then makes a subtle shift to cast all online educational providers as a suspicious lot that offer degrees without any value. In fact, despite the occasional “diploma mill,” online courses and degree programs now represent the fastest growing segment of higher education, and most of these are offered by well-regarded accredited institutions (including several in Maine). These academically rigorous courses provide educational opportunities to thousands of individuals who might not otherwise have a chance to access resources to meet their personal and professional needs. The next time Beem opines about the quality and integrity of colleges and universities, he might want to consider that traditional, face-to-face, campus-based programs do not necessarily have a monopoly on best practices in education.

Beem columns ignores some of the guilty

It is a joy to return from vacation to find Edgar Allen Beem in such fine spleen as his “Blame it on the Poor ...” column. Beem will, however, need to enlarge his Paddy Wagon (perhaps to the size of President Obama’s black and heavily armored Canadian-made campaign bus) to include a veritable platoon of Democrats: Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Bill Clinton, Franklin Raines, James Johnson, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Maxine Waters and, in a fine gesture of solidarity “across the aisle,” Republican Alan Greenspan. The charges are all set out by Gretchen Morgenson with Joshua Rosner (in “Reckless Endangerment,” Henry Holt, 2011) of The New York Times financial page. Evidently, Beem has missed these worthies because he never gets past the opinion pages (largely his unvalidated own) to confront facts. Dr. Nicholas M. Nelson Topsham

Facts refute Beem, with 1 exception Edgar Allen Beem complained recently that the rich don’t pay their “fair share” (whatever that is) of taxes. He is simply wrong on the facts. Based on the most recent full-year tax analysis available (2008), IRS data indicates that taxpayers in the top 1 percent of adjusted gross income paid over 38 percent of all federal income taxes in 2008; the top 5 percent paid over 58 percent of all federal income taxes in 2008. In that year, the top 1 percent of taxpayers were those declaring AGI in excess of $380,000; the top 5 percent were those with AGI of a little over $159,000. The bottom 50 percent of taxpayers paid a grand total of 2.7 percent of all federal income taxes. Put a different way, here are the facts: the top 5 percent pay more in federal income taxes than the other 95 percent, and half the population pays virtually nothing in federal income tax. But that’s not good enough for Beem and others who share his views. I think the far left imagines a socialist utopia that can be financed by a tiny fraction of the population. America’s most productive and successful citizens believe that they are already paying their fair share (and more). They are right. Beem did say in his column that he doesn’t “know squat about the U.S. economy ... .” At least he got that part right. Ernest L. Copley III Cumberland Center

Surviving the coming economic collapse Lately, rumors of a coming economic collapse, something far worse than 2008, have been creeping in around the edges of my life like the stench of something dead in the basement. And like the rotting corpse of something the cat dragged in, I’d like to be rid of it, but I don’t really want to go look for it. The social pathology that’s out there on the Internet, in wild, remote corners of the radio bands and festering among the survivalists who are with us always The Universal goes something like this: We are going to wake up one morning soon to discover that the stock market has crashed, the banks are all bankrupt and closed, the country is broke, and the economy has ground to a halt. If you don’t have your life’s savings buried in the backyard, you’re suddenly broke, too. Your money and investments Edgar Allen Beem are all gone. Now what are you going to do? Those rugged individualists who saw the end coming have converted all their wealth to gold, silver and cash, stockpiled at least a year’s worth of food and water, fortified their homes, installed supplemental oil tanks and back-up wood stoves, planned escape routes, and, oh yes, armed themselves heavily both for protection against desperate, starving neighbors and to hunt down the only meat anyone will be eating for the foreseeable future. The rich and powerful have seen this collapse of capitalism coming for several years now. Some will no doubt manage to profit from it, somehow having found a hedge against the econ-apocalypse. Most will be hunkered down in gated communities protected by private security forces paid in cognac and coq au vin. The rest of us, so the prevailing ill wind blows, will be rioting in the streets, penniless and fighting for survival. Mobs will storm the banks demanding their vanished fortunes. Supermarkets will all be looted within hours. We will be reduced to scavenging for wood to heat our cold, dark homes. Soft old liberals like myself who possess no manual skills will be the first to go. To survive in the cash


only post-crash world, you’ll need both wheelbarrows full of cash and a marketable skill. Auto mechanics, carpenters, farmers, hunters and fishermen will be able to barter their services for whatever they need. Doctors and witch doctors will get rich overnight. Insurance salesmen, investment bankers, attorneys and journalists will be (bleep) out of luck with no useful services to trade for food. Hardcore right-wing militias will patrol the streets, keeping order and shooting looters. In the brave new world of the self-reliant, the well-armed will be in charge and Motor City Madman Ted Nugent will preside over the ruins of America as a self-appointed strongman. Welcome to Mogadishu, Maine. Well, I guess that’s one way to look at it. I, of course, have a different take on the coming catastrophe. First, I don’t see it happening at all. (Sorry, Two Gun Ted.) Second, if it does happen, I believe a total economic collapse is as likely to bring out the best in people as the worst. Those Americans who place more value on cooperation than competition will find common survival solutions and begin knitting together a social fabric while the wild-eye weirdos in their fortified bunkers slowly go feral and funny in the head. In a time of great economic crisis, selflessness, caring and sharing will triumph over selfishness, arming and hoarding. Forced to live hand to mouth like most of the people in this world, we may discover that what’s really important in life has little or nothing to do with material possessions. Yes, it’s actually possible to enjoy life without a car, cell phone, computer, cable television, credit card, country club membership or condo in Cabo. While I certainly understand the present anxiety about the future and the ever-present instinct for self-preservation, I still believe those “preppers” busy preparing for the worst are missing both the sweetness and the point of life. They have already descended into the chaos they fear. Beware: the world is what you think it is. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Obituaries Anna Maria Ciampa, 91 BRUNSWICK — Anna Maria Ciampa, 91, died Aug. 26 at the Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Va. Born Nov. 2, 1919, in Boston, Mass., she was the daughter of Alphonse and Stella Rubini DeFranco. After she graduated from Roslindale High School, she furthered her education in art and art history. On Feb. 13, 1949, she married Edward Louis Ciampa. Over the years she volunteered teaching ceramics classes and volunteered at the Jordan Acres School. A sweet and gentle lady, she was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who could make a mean blueberry pie, was a great listener, and had an artist’s eye of the world. Her brothers, Joseph, Carl, Edward, Arthur, and Alfred DeFranco, predeceased her. She is survived by a daughter, Anne Wallace, of Brunswick and a son, Edward Ciampa of Arlington, Va. A graveside service will be held at 12 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, at Maine Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery in Augusta. Memorial contributions may be made to the charity of choice Arrangements are by Brackett Funeral Home, 29 Federal St., Brunswick.

Northwestern University, the University of Kiev and Bowdoin College. Before leaving to teach in Kiev, he spent a great deal of time teaching himself how to speak and read in fluent Russian. During his career he received many awards, including the Who’s Who in Economics in 1995, and the Roy Crum Research Award in 1991. Due to his expertise in infrastructure and economics, he was frequently called upon to speak, testify, and advise groups, including the U.S. Congress, The World Bank, the CIA and the Environmental Protection Agency. Although he excelled in his professional life, he was most proud of his role as a father and grandfather. He and his former wife, Sarah, raised their three children in Brunswick, where they lived for 20 years. When his children were young, he was a fixture at all of their sporting events, and was happy to see his children graduate college and witness the birth of his three beloved grandchildren. Passionate about physical fitness, he was exceptionally skilled in yoga, and participated in many running races in Maine. He never stopped learning, and could be found many mornings at a coffee shop in Portland reading the latest economic news. His favorite places in the world were Onekama, Mich., and Willard Beach in

South Portland. He is survived by his former wife, Sarah Aschauer of Auburn; his daughter, Erika Rodrigue, her husband Luke Rodrigue, and their three children, Grace, Oliver and Lucy of Augusta; his two sons, Nicholas Aschauer of Auburn, and Henry Aschauer of Tacoma, Wash.; his sister, Ann Osborne, and his two brothers, Joseph and Martin Aschauer. A memorial service will be held at St. John’s the Baptist Church All Saints Parish in Brunswick on Sept. 17 at 11 a.m. The service will be followed by a reception at the Muskie Archives at Bates College in Lewiston. Memorial donations may be made to a charity of choice. Arrangements are by Stetson’s Funeral

Fall Sports Overview And so we begin again. A new school year is upon us. One rife with optimism for teams at local schools. That rosy outlook is well-founded as Brunswick, Morse and Mt. Ararat all boast ample talent in several sports. While we cling

to the last vestiges of summer, the autumn promises to bring not only cooler weather, but also triumph and drama on playing fields and cross country and golf courses around the area. It’s time for a new chapter to be written. Enjoy.

New Procedure Offers Facelift Without Surgery

See us on the web at


The Dermatology office of Dr. Joel Sabean in South Portland has just introduced a non-surgical ultrasound therapy for counteracting the effects of time and gravity on your skin. This procedure, called Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gradually restore memory to the skin and underlying tissue. According to Dr. Sabean “Baby boomers are unique in they are the first generation that wants to look like they feel, and don’t want to feel like they look.” And that’s what this new treatment offers, the possibility of a freshened and younger look. But while surgery has always been an option, this ultrasound therapy can provide many of the same results, but is completely noninvasive. This treatment uses ultrasound

which has been in use for over 50 years in medical procedures. It works by applying low levels of heat to just the right depth beneath Dr. Sabean the surface of the skin. The natural response of the skin to this energy is to stimulate the growth of collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, which results in a natural lift of the skin over time. “There’s two components, there’s an immediate lift for most people and then there’s a late lift that works in ninety five plus percent.” says Sabean. Because this treatment utilizes ultrasound, it is the only procedure that allows the practitioner to see

below the surface of the skin, thereby allowing them to specifically target the area to be treated. As with surgery, the deep foundational layers of the skin are treated. Because the skin is treated so precisely, from the inside out, the procedure is both safe and effective, with no down time. Dr. Sabean comments “with this procedure people can literally walk out and then go to the gym.” There is slight discomfort while the treatment is being performed, but it is quite low and dissipates quickly. This is an indication that the collagen-building process has been initiated. This is in fact one of the key benefits of this procedure. Esthetician Michelle Correia says of her patients, “They’re very excited for something that they can do within the hour, and then it will be

their own body naturally repairing itself.” Those who are good candidates for this procedure include people whose skin has relaxed to the point of looking and feeling less firm. A lowered brow line, sagging skin on the eyelids, loose neck skin or the appearance of jowls are often the first signs of maturing skin. Ultherapy has been available in Europe for over 4 years, and has proven to be an inviting alternative to surgery. It has been in the U.S. for just over a year. For More information about Ultherapy, contact the office of Dr. Joel Sabean: 350 Cottage Road, S. Portland

Out & About

Summer ends with bluegrass back in Brunswick she’s clearly headed to the top of heap. Al Hawkes, Westbrook’s celebrated performer and record producer – you’ll recognize him by his red cowboy hat – will also be featured on Friday. Plus there will be a screening of his recent documentary DVD. Other draws include Tony Rowan, Del McCoury, Danny Paisley & Southern Gass, Steep Canyon Rangers and Seldom Scene. These are all national acts with a big following. Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival (a mile or so from Cook’s Corner in Brunswick,) runs from Friday afternoon till Sunday evening, Sept. 2-4. Call 7256009 or visit

By Scott Andrews Hurricane Irene has blown away into the history books, and Maine’s summer season of arts and entertainment is about to follow. This weekend’s grand finale is topped by one of the summer’s biggest events, the Sept. 2-4 revival of the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival in Brunswick. After a 30-year run, Maine’s biggest bluegrass event called it quits in 2008. But it’s back for 2011 by popular demand. OMG, you gotta see “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” This Broadway stage version of the hit movie is one of the funniest shows ever mounted at Ogunquit Playhouse. And Becky Gulsvig in the title role will like totally blow you away. Singer Tony Bennett just celebrated his 85th birthday, and you can join the musical fun by seeing “I Left My Heart” at Arundel Barn Playhouse. This show is a fine jukebox musical that pays tribute to the life and legend of America’s quintessential crooner.

Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival Three years ago, bluegrass fans in Maine shed many tears at the final performance of the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, which ended its 30-year run in Brunswick. That event won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Event of the Year Award. But the 2008 finale wasn’t really final. The festival, Maine’s biggest bluegrass event of the season, is returning this weekend. And the lineup of stars? Just like the hiatus never happened. Hostess/promoter Pati Crooker has booked an array of bluegrass stars, national and international figures who promise once again to fill the attractive seaside campground with music fans. Let’s start with Friday’s headliner: Rhonda Vincent and the Rage are the most celebrated band in bluegrass, with honors including a coveted Entertainer of the Year award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and seven consecutive IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year awards.

‘Legally Blonde’

Scott Andrews

Rhonda Vincent, multiple winner of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Female Entertainer of the Year award, is the Friday headliner for this weekend’s revival of the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival.

to her vocal powers, Vincent is also proficient on the mandolin, a tricky instrument that’s seldom identified with female performers. In 2001, Vincent signed a high-profile endorsement contract with Martha White baking products, the flour company that first sponsored bluegrass icons Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs in 1953. Just like Flatt and Scruggs, Vincent rolls into every show on a blue-and-white bus dubbed the Martha White Bluegrass Express. I’ve heard Vincent many times, and interviewed her twice. She’s the proverbial “real thing” – a devoted mother who also likes to chat and pose for photos with her fans. An up-and-coming female bluegrass star is Sierra Hull. She was a headliner at the 2011 Ossippee Valley Music Festival, and

Blondes have more fun. Gentlemen prefer blondes. Ad infinitum. That’s the popular conception of fairhaired beauties that’s played to the hilt in “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” This fine musical comedy runs through Sept. 17 at Ogunquit Playhouse. (Full disclosure: I am the son of one of Deering High School’s blondest-ever graduates: Dorothy Jane Whitcomb.) Dumb blonde jokes abound at the start, but the heroine emerges about halfway through the show. Becky Gulsvig, in the tile role, is totally captivating. She starred in the first national touring company, and won the Helen Hayes award for this feat. The story revolves around Elle Woods (Gulsvig), a southern California college girl who gets dumped by her boyfriend. He heads to Harvard Law School, seeking someone “more serious.” In search of love, Elle follows him to Harvard. She rises to the top of her class and helps to win the acquittal of a prominent TV exercise phenom falsely accused or murder. Most of Ogunquit’s cast can boast Broadway credentials. They’re led by Michael Rupert, who originated the role of Professor Callahan in the 2007 production. “Legally Blonde” has a book by Heather Hatch, based on the novel by Amanda Brown. The score, by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, is fun but uninspired. Ogunquit Playhouse, about a mile

‘I Left My Heart’

Tony Bennett is an enduring icon of American music, a crooner who enjoyed his first starburst of popularity nearly 60 years ago and who continues to please audiences and record companies. Bennett celebrated his 85th birthday earlier this month and his next recording is slated for release in September. Bennett’s life and career are the twin hubs of “I Left My Heart,” a jukebox musical that is the final offering of this season at Arundel Barn Playhouse. With a minimal script by David Grapes and new vocal arrangements by Todd Olson, “I Left My Heart” presents a sampling of singer’s vast repertoire: 34 songs performed by a trio of tenors. Bennett was the king of American crooners, singers with excellent voices who wore their hearts on their sleeves and focused on romantic ballads and torch songs. With few exceptions, Bennett performed songs that were written by Tin Pan Alley’s top composers and lyricists and first made popular by someone else. His genius was discovering the romantic keys to every song and sincerely projecting his feelings to the audience. Arundel Barn attendees will hear most of Bennett’s top hits, including his first million-seller, “Because of You,” from 1953. The show’s title comes from the 1962 tune that became Bennett’s signature song: “I Left My Heart In San Francisco.” Other selections include “The Good Life,” “Rags To Riches” and “Stranger In Paradise.” Arundel Barn’s three-man cast comprises musical theater majors from distinctive schools. Their energy is compelling, and I liked this show very much. Although Bennett remains popular with a new generation, nostalgia is definitely the driving force behind “I Left My Heart.” Enjoy this show for what it is: a melodic adventure into happy times and happy memories.

Air show


Comment on this story at:

from page 1 take to the sky before every Blue Angels flight to show air show spectators, and a handful of reporters who ride along with them, what the C-130T Hercules is capable of. Which, despite its misleading name, is a lot. On Friday afternoon, after handing out motion-sickness bags to all the passengers, Capt. Edward Jorge launched the plane into the sky. Over the course of the 10-minute ride, the plane experienced zero and 2G gravitational forces, causing passengers to float and then be pinned into their seats, and reached its top speed of 370 mph while flying only 60 feet above the runway. However impressive Fat Albert’s performance may be, few spectators at the Great State of Maine Air Show on Friday had probably ever heard of the plane, or thought very hard about whether the Blue Angels have a support crew. Indeed, Fat Albert isn’t even included in the air show program. But that doesn’t bother Gunnery Sgt. Ben Chapman, Fat Albert’s flight engineer. “People who don’t know who Fat Albert is aren’t real air show fans,” he said. Besides, in the military, everyone has heard of the big, blue and yellow propeller plane, and being part of the support staff for the Blue Angels is a big deal, said Oscar Arita, the logistics specialist for the team. Arita said the job is competitive, and looks good on a military resume. Everyone on the team’s 110-member staff is hand-

picked based on their past history in the military and endorsements by supervisors. You don’t just have to be good at your job, he said, you have to want to be the face of the military for the duration of the three-year tour, something Chapman was excited about. “I love to talk,” he said, adding that the recruiting and outreach aspects of the Blue Angels is one of his favorite parts. Recruiting is the official mission of the Blue Angels, and Arita and other Blue Angels staff often visit local schools before the air shows. Fat Albert also takes local recruiters up in the plane, which Chapman said gives them exciting stories to tell prospective recruits. Over all, he thinks the military gets a good bang for its buck – the $34 million the U.S. Navy spends annually on the Blue Angels. Before the Navy decommissioned Brunswick Naval Air Station in May, the air show was free to spectators. This year, the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, the civilian group tasked with base redevelopment, charged $20 at the gate for an adult ticket on Saturday, and five dollars less on Friday. The Sunday show was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene. George Daddona, who drove down from Mechanic Falls, said the admission price was worth it. “Not everything in life is free,” he said. Besides, his wife Linda bought him the tickets back in February as a birthday present. Mike Morin, from Sabattus, saw things

differently. “It’s a tough year to shell out money for extracurricular activities,” he said, although he still bought tickets for himself and his two sons for the Friday night show. While MRRA officials didn’t have final attendance numbers, Executive Director Steve Levesque on Monday estimated that between 15,000 and 20,000 people attended the show Friday night and Saturday. Levesque had been hoping for closer to 30,000, but Levesque said the hurricane undoubtedly dissuaded people from attending on Saturday. “This is a regional show, we get people

in here from Canada and all over New England, so I imagine a lot of the people who had to travel didn’t come up,” he said. Levesque said MRRA had budgeted $800,000 for the three-day show, but costs – and revenue – were significantly less because of Sunday’s cancellation. Still, he said he was pleased with how the show went, and said he hoped MRRA can host an air show at Brunswick Landing again next year.

rid of balers and probably reduce staff at the transfer station.

from page 1 four years, many towns have begun switching to single-sort recycling, where residents bundle all their recyclables together and the town sends the waste to a facility where it is sorted and sold. Switching to single-sort has costs and benefits that Fred Cantu, recycling and transfer station manager, is weighing before the town seriously considers switching. The benefits of single-sort include less hassle for residents, a greater range of what can be recycled, and a likely increase in the town’s recycling rate. Because the town would no longer be baling its own recyclables, it could get

Switching to single-sort would also mean giving up revenue from the sale of recyclables. In the past three years, the town averaged about $63,000 annually from the sale of recycled materials, according to the 2010 annual town report. According to MacDonald, some singlesort companies have revenue-sharing agreements with towns, which may allow Harpswell to recoup some of that lost income. It’s hard to say how much Harpswell’s recycling rate would jump if the town switched to single-sort. The type of recycling program, and quantity and type of recycled materials, varies so much that it’s difficult to make comparisons with other towns that have already made the

September 2, 2011

“It would still cost the taxpayer extra money for what I feel is a minimal return in increased recycling,” he said.

switch, MacDonald said. Towns that experienced the greatest boost in recycling rates after switching to single-sort usually offered curbside pick-up and instituted a pay-per-bag program, where residents must buy town garbage bags. Fewer communities with drop-off recycling centers have switched to single-sort, and there is only three years of data to draw on. But in MacDonald’s experience, he said there will likely be a single-digit increase in the recycling rate if Harpswell switches.

But after seeing Cantu’s presentation to the selectman on Aug. 18, Selectman Jim Henderson isn’t completely convinced.

“Our Recycling Advisory Committee has not weighed in on this, and I’m still persisting,” he said. “I want to continue to see if I can be satisfied ... that we should do what we’re doing and stick with it.” Whatever happens, it’s important to be decisive, MacDonald said.

“Once you change a program system,” he said, “it’s very difficult to back up and adopt the former program.”

Based on his analysis, Cantu said he doesn’t recommend that the town switch to single-sort recycling.

Comment on this story at:

from page 1 age to all but one. “It could have taken out a whole dock,” said Marine Patrol Officer Scott Couture, who investigated the accident the next day. He didn’t have an estimate yet of total damage. After the boat landed on the beach, Allen and Landry realized there was nothing to do at the time and went home. Around noon the following day, during the next high tide, Allen and a crowd of onlookers returned to the beach to try and pull the Bearcat II from the shore. He enlisted the help of three lobstermen who used their boats to try and pull the catamaran off the sand, and had a diver try to clear the tangle of ropes from the Bearcat II’s motors. But nothing worked. “He pulled until he ripped the cleats off the side of his boat,” Allen said of his son, Josh, who used his boat to try and tug Bearcat II off the beach.



As the tide turned, the men decided to dig out underneath the boat and wait until the next high tide, at 1 a.m., which was higher than the noon tide. Early Tuesday morning, Bearcat II floated off the beach under its own power, and Allen docked it at Bailey Island Lobster. On Tuesday afternoon he took the boat to Gowen Marine in Portland to have the motors repaired; there was little other damage to the catamaran. Ironically, Bearcat II is moored in Harpswell during summer and fall to escape hurricanes in Florida, where the boat spends the winter with its owner. Allen said he’s thankful Bearcat II didn’t take out more boats, and is grateful so many people pitched in to help. “It’s just an unfortunate situation that turned out a lot better than it should have,” he said.
