Jetport upgrade taking off A look behind the $75M facelift By Lindsay Tice PORTLAND ­— On Oct. 2, the Portland International Jetport will officially unveil Phase 1 of its new self, a sleek, modern airport addition with soaring ceilings and tons of glass. Among the new offerings: Travelers who don’t check their bags will be able to walk seamlessly from the parking garage to the airport (so seamlessly it can’t rightfully be called a tunnel), right through security and to their gate. More: Travelers will be able to get ice-packed lobsters to go and families will be able to drop off visiting Aunt Edna more easily. There will even be mood lighting. It’s not your parents’ Jetport. Although Phase 2 won’t finish until February, it’s this first-phase opening that will begin to change the way people in southern Maine travel. Starting Sunday, the public can enter a different way. Travelers will go through security a different way and some will start See page 28

Congregation hopes to demolish, rebuild burned church By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Three months after a fire gutted the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, the congregation has voted to tear down the structure and rebuild on Pleasant Street. Without knowing how much the insurance settlement would be, and with only an estimate of the costs of repairing or building new, congregants voted overwhelmingly on Sept. 18 to stay in town instead of moving to Gurnet Road, where the church owns land. The demolition is contingent on approval by the Village Review Board. Church representatives will attend the board’s Oct. 18 meeting. Mike Heath, president of the congregation, said members decided the Pleasant Street location would best allow the church to fulfill its mission, stay close to its historic roots and provide better visibility. He said the decision to build a new church was also based on size constraints of the old one. According to the Rev. Sylvia Stocker, the church has 180 adult members. Sunday services 2 1/2 years ago were getting so crowded the church had to add See page 29

It’s a renter’s market in Brunswick

Local Realtors say there is abundance of singlefamily homes for rent in the greater Brunswick area, like this one on Dunning Street in Brunswick.

Vacancy rates rise post-BNAS, but not as much as feared

By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Everyone, it seemed, was expecting the worst when developer George Schott purchased former Brunswick Naval Air Station housing last October. How could the addition of 702 housing units that were previously restricted to military personnel not devastate the local housing market, which was already reeling from the base closure and

an economic downturn? But a year later, area landlords, real estate agents and public housing officials say the impact of hundreds of new rental properties in town hasn’t been as harmful as they thought it would be. “Hearing all the negative that folks had to say ... I thought that Brunswick would take a lot bigger hit than it did,” said Jon Leaver, of Maine Home Realty in Bath.

Vacancy rates A housing study prepared for the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority in 2009 by Development Synergies LLC predicted that vacancy rates in surrounding communities could exceed 15 percent after the Navy base closed this year. The impact on Brunswick was estimated to be the most See page 21

Green building tour opens homes, businesses to the public

20 Bow Street Freeport 865-7007

805 Route One Yarmouth 846-6565

By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — Homes and businesses throughout the region will be open for anyone to stroll through on Saturday, Oct. 1, all in the name of green energy. “This isn’t a house-beautiful tour, this is about energy,” said Falmouth resident Claudia King, who is also chairwoman of

the town’s recycling and energy committee. King’s home, on Woodville Road, will be open during the tour. She recently retrofitted the building with solar panels, a wood stove, an air service heat pump that extracts heat from the air outside and brings only that air inside, and insulation. She said she is hoping her home will become a net-zero energy house. “We really paid attention to the building envelope, the insulation, windows and doors,” King said. In addition to King’s house, the Gorham Savings Bank on Route 1, the new Falmouth Elementary School on Woodville Road and another Falmouth residence will be open to the public. Buildings in Freeport, Portland and Scarborough are also on the list, which can be found at

Anyone with a home or business that they’d like to add to the tour can do that on the website, too. “You can go on the website and create your own tour,” King said. “It’s open to people from anywhere, there’s no admission.” Most locations are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but King suggested checking the website to be sure before heading out. The event is organized by the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association to encourage people and businesses to explore and consider green energy options.

BIW could build 2 more destroyers By Alex Lear BATH — The U.S. Navy has awarded Bath Iron Works a $680 million contract to build a new guided-missile destroyer of the DDG 51 line, according to the shipyard. Along with that ship, DDG 115, the award includes a $665 million option for BIW to build DDG 116, the next vessel in that line. BIW expects DDG 115 to be delivered in 2016. “The sure thing is, we’ve got money to build 115, and we expect, if funded

by Congress, the 116 will come to us as well,” BIW spokesman Jim DeMartini said Wednesday. “This award is a welcome addition to our backlog and is a positive sign that we will be building DDG 51s in Bath well into the future,” BIW President Jeff Geiger said Tuesday in a news release. “Along with the award of DDG 1001 and 1002 last week, it is another expression of the Navy’s confidence in our ability to build affordable, high quality ships. It also enables

us to maintain a strong base of quality shipbuilding jobs in Maine.” Geiger expressed the shipyard’s appreciation of the support that Maine’s congressional delegation has given to the DDG program, noting that “the delegation’s commitment to national defense and their advocacy on behalf of the workers of Maine continues to be an important fac-

tor in ensuring the stability of U.S. naval shipbuilding.” DeMartini said the shipyard has already ordered long lead time material for DDG 115, but he did not have a firm date on when construction would begin. Meanwhile, DDG 1000 is more than half complete, DDG 1001 is more than 20 percent finished, and production will soon start on DDG 1002.

Ex-employee pleads guilty to credit union theft BRUNSWICK — A former Atlantic Regional Federal Credit Union worker pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Portland to stealing more than $500,000 from her former employer. From November 2004 to October 2010, Marsha Richard, 42, of Topsham, manipulated accounting entries for checks that credit union members deposited, but that had been returned for insufficient funds. Instead of transferring the money back

to Atlantic, she put the money into her own bank account, or that of a friend or family member. Richard faces a maximum possible sentence of 30 years in prison, and a $1 million fine. She will be sentenced after completion of a pre-sentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

Topsham considers digital archives

Bowdoin boasts record endowment BRUNSWICK — Bowdoin College’s endowment is larger than ever before: just over $900 million. According to figures released by the college on Sept. 22, the endowment grew 22.3 percent over the course of fiscal year 2011, which ended June 30. Paula Volent, senior vice president for investments, said the college’s invest-

TOPSHAM — The Board of Selectmen opted Sept. 15 to send a proposed digitization policy for the town’s historic archives to the town attorney for review. The Topsham Historical Society is seeking a grant from the Maine Memory Network to fund a scanner, but a digitization policy is necessary first. History Committee Chairman Ralph Williams told the Board of Selectmen in August that the society wants to make images available through the Maine Historical Society’s website. Williams said he had consulted with Town Clerk Ruth Lyons and Town Manager Cornell Knight “about the guidelines and produced a policy I would like the Board to consider. This is a general policy about digitization and not specifically to allow for the Topsham Historical Society access.”

ments in venture capital and private equity recovered from the financial crisis and performed extremely well. The positive return brings the college’s endowment to its highest level since fiscal year 2008, when it was valued at $831 million. From 2008 to 2009 the endowment declined 17 percent to $688 million, before rising just over 10 percent to $753.5 million at the end of fiscal year 2010.

Bath City Council: Candidates compete in 2 races By Alex Lear BATH — This year’s City Council election includes two contests for three seats. Incumbent at-large Councilor Andrew Winglass of Judkins Avenue is being challenged by Charles Turcotte of Middle Street and Peter Heinz of High Street, and incumbent Councilor James Omo of Middle Street will have to defeat Meadow Rue Merrill to keep his Ward 1 seat. Incumbent Councilor David Sinclair of Meadow Way is unopposed in Ward 6. Meanwhile, only incumbent Tim Harkins returned nomination papers for the District 3 seat on the Regional School Unit 1 Board of Directors. No one submitted papers in Districts 2 and 7, including current office-holders David Barber and Betsy Varian. A major issue for council candidates is the proposed move of the Bath Youth Meetinghouse and Skatepark from the soon-to-be-demolished former YMCA on Summer Street to the former National Guard Armory on Old Brunswick Road.

At-Large Heinz, 72, is married and has one daughter. He has lived in Bath nine

years. He has spent most of his life in the marketing and advertising fields, and was most recently an advertising manager for both Maine Magazine and Maine Home & Design. Prior to that he was involved in membership and advertising sales for the Heinz Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber. In deciding to run for the City Council, Heinz said, “I think it’s time for a change,” noting that the candidates against whom he is running have both served on the council. “I think I can provide a fresh, enthusiastic perspective and an intelligent approach to problem solving,” he said. Heinz said he is “totally dedicated to preserving Bath as a thriving and productive city that governs with fiscal responsibility.” Waterfront development and superior education are local issues that concern him, he said, as is keeping teenagers active and productive. But he has not taken a position on whether the Skatepark should be moved

to the Armory, noting that “whether (the Armory) is suitable for a skate park or not, I don’t know, but I think one of the biggest challenges the city has is to find an alternative” to what has been the Skatepark. Heinz, who is chairman of Bath’s tourism committee, and a member of Main Street Bath’s economic restructuring and promotions committees, said he would like to make Bath more of an all-year visitor destination. Turcotte, 77, has two daughters and three granddaughters, and he has spent most of his life in Bath. Now retired, his work experience included time at Bath Iron Works and the Bath Fire Department, as well as in the carpentry field. One reason he is Turcotte running, Turcotte said, is because he does not want to see anyone run unopposed. He previously served as Ward 1 councilor from 19871993.

He said taxes are a big concern because the council “can’t seem to control themselves about the spending. Everything the city manager comes up with, they all seem to be ‘yes’ people, and are willing to go along with whatever he says.” On the subject of the Skatepark, Turcotte said, “when this started out ... it wasn’t going to cost the people of the city anything. It was going to be all taken care of by those who were involved, and that didn’t work out.” He said he might be able to support the Skatepark’s move into the Armory if the entity is able to fund the necessary renovations to the facility on its own, without help from the city. “But I don’t think that’s going to happen ...,” he said. “They want to spend too much money. “You want to give the kids a place to go, but how many of them go there, and how big a problem is it going to be, and how much more is it going to cost us as far as maintenance goes after the thing is all remodeled for that purpose, and how many more people are we going to have to hire to take care of it?,” Tur-

continued next page

from previous page cotte asked. “That’s a pretty good-sized building.” He said it is important for the city to put its priorities in order, and address issues like street improvements and the sewer overflow problems that have plagued parts of Bath. Winglass, 51, is married and has three children. He has lived in Bath about 20 years, coowns Mae’s Cafe on Centre Street, and is completing his third term on the council. “There are some things that I’m still working on ... and I enjoy being on the Winglass council,” he said. “And I like representing Bath from my seat.” His service to Bath includes time on the boards of the Patten Free Library, the Main Street Bath and Bath Area Family YMCA boards, the Bath Development Corp., as well as on the Bath Zoning Board of Appeals and Bath Economic Development, Waterfront and South End Park committees. He served two years as council chairman, and several years as vice chairman. Winglass said he supports the council’s recent appropriation of $5,000 from its contingency account to fund preliminary studies of improvements, renovations and repairs at the Armory. The council approved borrowing up to $175,000 last year to purchase the building. But when asked whether he supports the Skatepark move to the Armory, and who should fund the renovations, Winglass said that until the council knows

the cost, he is “at a loss of information to even make a decision one way or another.” He said the city’s economic development and infrastructure are important, and he supports objectives such as getting tenants for the second phase of Wing Farm Business Park, and completing the Waterfront Park. “I think the city’s come a long way in the nine years that I’ve been on the council,” he said. “So I want to keep the city moving in those kinds of directions, as opposed to moving backwards or stalling.”

Ward 1 Merrill, 39, is married and has four children. She has lived in Bath almost 15 years, and as a freelance writer she has worked for publications such as Downeast magazine and The Boston Globe. She has volunteered at the Dike-Newell EleMerrill mentary School, and said her manuscript for a children’s book is in the hands of an agent. She said she was asked to run by fellow residents concerned by the City Council’s direction. “There are some big-spending items that have come up,” she said, “and I think particularly people are concerned that we not be spending money on luxuries right now, and that we find creative solutions to meet the needs of the people in the community.” Merrill’s oldest son is at the Skatepark about once a week, she said. “I would love to see a center that meets the needs not only of the skateboarders, but also a wider base of kids

in the community,” she said. “And I’m 100 percent in favor of helping the Skatepark access the funds and the support they need, but I don’t think the city can take on the financial burden of renovating the Armory, or paying for that with taxpayers’ money, because people are stretched so thin right now.” She said that if the Skatepark moves to the Armory, she would support the city contributing some funds to the renovation, but that she would prefer the Skatepark raise most of the funds. She said she favors the Armory being the Skatepark’s new home. Merrill also said she wants to bring a higher level of respect back to the City Council, and that she wants to see a “good dialog” between councilors and constituents. “I hope to make sure (Bath) is still a safe, affordable and enjoyable place for people to live,” she said. Omo, 41, moved to Bath with his parents in 1980, moved away in 1989 and returned in 2001. Omo has served two terms on the council, and he runs Omo Construction. He said that as a councilor there are many projects Omo he has started, and committees he has served on, “and I just would really like to see things through. I think that the council and the city of Bath are heading in a great direction, we’ve obviously got our

finances under control and lots of big things on the horizon. And mostly, I have a hard time sitting back, paying my taxes and having somebody else spend it.” Omo, who served on the South End Park Committee and is on the Waterfront Park Committee, would like to see the latter project finished. His service has also included the Sagadahoc County Budget Committee, Bath’s Solid Waste and Recycling Committee, as well as its Facilities, Lighting and Parking committees. He also serves on the Skatepark board, and said that should the operation move to the Armory, “it’s definitely going to be more of a youth meetinghouse. ... Even now, there’s way more going on than just skateboarding,” he said, such as computers, games and socializing. “There’s no way that (the Armory) will be renovated and paid for yearly by being a community center,” he said. “If you make it a youth meetinghouse, at least half of the operating costs of that building will be covered ... just by revenue.” He noted that when the Bath Parks and Recreation Department took over the Skatepark, the facility was operating in the red, but that it is now is nearly in the black. “The Skatepark board is more than ready to go out and raise money,” Omo said.

Kelp wanted Seaweed farms expand in Casco Bay By Emily Parkhurst CHEBEAGUE ISLAND ­— Tollef Olson and Paul Dobbins are passionate about seaweed. Pointing to a blown-up photo of a microscopic sugar kelp seedling, Dobbins calls it their first baby. Olson and Dobbins own Ocean Approved, a kelp farming operation with several aquaculture projects off the coast of Maine. They’ve proposed two more farms, one near the sandbar between Little Chebeague and Chebeague islands, and the other near Jewel Island.

The pair found out last week they received a $300,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Small Business Innovative Research program to continue their research to develop, seed and cultivate kelp. “It’s a highly competitive grant,” Dobbins said. Ocean Approved started in 2006 and was initially associated with Bang Island Mussels. The mussel farm has since been sold, and it’s just kelp for Olson and Dobbins now. Their kelp farm was the first in the United States. “Both of us spent time in Asia and realized there was a significant population eating seaweed,” Dobbins said. Olson, who started his career as a restaurateur, said he wanted to grow kelp in Maine for years, but assumed there wasn’t a market. But now, he said, people are looking for sustainable food grown locally, which is exactly what their kelp farm aims to provide. “We call it our ‘virtuous vegetable,’” Olson said. They call it that so often, they trademarked the phrase. Dobbins said the three varieties of kelp they grow are all native to Maine. They grow in the open ocean and filter nitrogen and phosphorus – often considered pollutants – out of the water. The plants feed entirely on nutrients from the ocean and require no additional food. Dobbins said the final product has more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and more fiber than brown rice. In addition to its positive health affects, Dobbins said kelp is a perfect aquacul-

ture product for Maine because its prime growing season is the winter – opposite the lobster industry. Dobbins said Ocean Approved has no intention of patenting its kelp-growing technology, which is the first of its kind in the country. “Part of our goal is to create an industry,” he said. “We want this to take off.” They’re hoping lobstermen will grow kelp in their offseason, providing them a way to make money in the winter. Ocean Approved would then become a distributor of kelp products.

The company’s products, including pickled kelp, frozen kelp noodles and kelp slaw, are now available at Whole Foods Market and several smaller stores and markets in southern Maine. They have recipes and suggestions on their website, Dobbins and Olson said the way kelp is grown, suspended 7 feet below the surface, means the buoys can be treated in the same way as lobster buoys: boats can travel right over them and not worry about tangling propellers in a field of kelp. In a trip out to the location, the Ocean Approved boat went between buoys many times without catching. Anyone concerned about the location or the project can contact the Department of Marine Resources. The application for both the Cheabeague and Jewel locations are available on the DMR’s website, Diantha Robinson, the aquaculture hearing officer for the Maine DMR, said she has received a couple letters from the public, but that they were requests for more information about the projects, rather than protests. Dobbins and Olson did a public presentation on Chebeague Island on Sept. 18 in response to the letters.

Bresca Day to open, Arby’s closes, L.F.K. moves in By Amy Anderson Beginning at the end of October, Bresca in Portland will be open during the day to offer pastries, sandwiches and light lunches. Owner and recent James Beard Award nominee Krista Kern Desjarlais said that after Columbus Day and some minor aesthetic interior alterations, she will reduce dinner service to four days a week at the 111 Middle St. eatery and open a bakery and lunch spot during the day.

Bresca Day will be European in style, open from late morning to midafternoon with fresh pastries, salads and local seasonal fare, she said Monday. Customers will be able to take the food to go or sit in with their children and friends. Coffee and espresso drinks will be provided by Matt’s Coffee of Pownal. As a new mother, Desjarlais said she wants to focus more on pastries and baking and offer a space that is comfortable for children.

“It will be the same as Bresca, but more casual in spirit,” she said. “This is not going to change what we already offer, but I’d like to be able to do what I know how to do well. (Bresca Day) will be indicative of who I am and what Bresca is.” She said customers can check the restaurant website for more information in the coming weeks and can expect a Facebook page soon. At Longfellow Square in Portland, owners and partners Johnny Lomba and John Welliver of Portland are plan-

ning to open L.F.K. in the 188 State St. space formerly occupied by Cunningham Books. According to documents provided to the Portland City Council a few weeks ago, the restaurant will be open 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and serve mostly appetizers, drinks and wine. Arby’s at 285 Forest Ave. in Portland has closed after 26 years in business. Jim Raffel continues as owner of the franchises in Auburn, Augusta and at the Maine Mall in South Portland. Raffel, whose father and uncle were co-founders of Arby’s in 1964 (Arby’s stands for the initials of the Raffel Brothers, R.B.), said the Forest Avenue real estate was continued page 22

Cross-border trade? Bangor gets it I can’t tell you how many chamber of commerce breakfasts I’ve attended over the years. Ditto Rotary Club luncheons, “Business After Global Hours” and networking events in general. If not for my parsimony at the bar and my iron will around the buffet, I’d be tipping the scales at – a higher number than I currently do. Networking can be a high-impact activity. Chamber and networking events have a common purpose, of course, aside from testing our caloric resolve. The goal is to put people together in a com- Perry B. Newman fortable setting in which conversation ensues and from which business activity may be generated.

Common purpose aside, however, community business-to-business events reflect the unique communities in which the participating businesses are located. That’s why “Eggs & Issues” in Portland, for example, feels different from similar gatherings in the Lewiston-Auburn area, or events in the Mid-Coast, or those in other, more distant areas of the state. Not better or worse. Just different. In fact, that’s what makes these events so agreeable. If you’re like me and you genuinely enjoy chatting with people while balancing coffee, orange juice and a plate of something or other in one hand, community business gatherings are great fun. They’re even more fun after you’ve been in Maine for a while and you have the chance to renew acquaintances, check in with old friends and see how things have changed since the last time you were in town. Years ago, when I rode the circuit promoting international trade and exports for the state, I spent quite a bit of time in and around Bangor. Even then, area leaders were quick to understand the importance of cross-border trade in particular, and were focused on opportunities with neighboring New Brunswick in a way that those of us in southern Maine were not. In fact, Bangor and Saint John have long enjoyed formal city-to-city ties. For some time leaders in both communities have articulated a “corridor” concept that serves as a paradigm to encourage more regular business exchanges. Moreover, back in the ‘90s, the cities’ cross-border focus was bolstered on a larger scale by a Maine-New Brunswick B2B conference known as “Partnerships.” Conferences come and conferences go as budgets and markets wax and wane. But a recent visit to Bangor confirmed for me once again that when it comes to understanding the importance and potential of cross-border

business, Bangor gets it. Last week a delegation of six entrepreneurial companies from Fredericton, Moncton, St. George and Edmunston, N.B., stopped in Bangor as part of a trade mission to Maine organized by the province’s economic development arm, Business New Brunswick. When we approached business leaders in Bangor to explore the potential for networking with the locals, it wasn’t long before the private and the nonprofit sectors came back to us and offered to host a welcoming breakfast gathering. Within minutes, conversations over coffee morphed into purposeful business card exchanges, which in turn matured into meetings and follow-up efforts taking place even now, after the mission has departed Maine. It’s important to mention, of course, that Portland got into the act as well. After the delegation left Bangor, dozens of one-on-one meetings took place in southern Maine, as industry associations like the E2Tech Council, TechMaine and the Maine Chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies spread the word. In fact, the New Brunswickers were fully booked here in southern Maine. The visit couldn’t have been much more productive. But there was something about the feeling in Bangor that was different; it was almost a sense of kinship, and it brought back memories of days when we focused on business not only because of the business, but because of the people. Folks in Bangor don’t feel the gravitational pull to Boston or New York the way we do in southern Maine. In the Bangor area, New Brunswick license plates and east-west traffic reflect a natural synergy anchored by

Bottom line: I’m sure we’ll see more business done between Maine and New Brunswick as a result of this delegation’s visit. It’s good to know that businesses on both sides of the border will be finding ways to prosper together. But it’s just as good to know that Bangor’s faith in cross-border trade remains undiminished. We didn’t have to ask the people in Bangor twice. As I said, when it comes to cross-border trade, Bangor gets it. Perry B.

Worried about wireless? This summer I had the opportunity to spend several weeks researching the contentious issues surrounding the wireless “smart” meters that Central Maine Power is installing all over its coverage area. Often I already have an opinion on a subject when I begin researching it, but in the case of smart meters I did not. I knew they were controversial, that some people believe they pose serious health and safety threats, but I really didn’t know what I thought.

The Universal


The Public Utilities Commission had mandated an opt-out Edgar Allen Beem for CMP customers, so what I was really trying to decide as I did my research for a magazine article was whether we should have a smart meter installed on our house or not. After interviewing CMP officials, smart-meter opponents, PUC members and staff, and scientists pro and con; reading reams of reports and orders and websites, I came to the conclusion that people worried about the impact of wireless smart meters have legitimate concerns. But I still decided to let CMP (or rather its contractor) replace my old mechanical meter with a smart meter. While I do not believe that CMP has done an adequate job informing its customers and the general public about the issues raised by smartmeter technology (individual sensitivity to radiofrequency exposure, possible links to cancer, interference with other wireless devices, privacy and private property issues, billing errors that can arise from remote reporting of electricity use, etc.), I do believe that, in the words of CMP spokesman John Carroll, CMP “kind of walked into a wireless debate.”

Comment on this story at:

The problem is not smart meters, it’s ubiquitous wireless technology. I sit here all day next to a wireless router that enables family members to use laptop computers all over the house. I walk around all day with a cell phone in my pocket and, when I use it, I hold it up to my head. Cafes, hotels, libraries and schools increasingly have Wi-Fi networks. Heck, RF waves somehow manage to find our wireless devices in cars speeding down the turnpike and atop Mt. Katahdin. There is no escape from wireless. Smart meter opponents point out that most other forms of wireless technology are voluntary and that people sensitive to RF can limit their exposure. Smart meters are on all the time. In a city, even if you don’t have a smart meter, you may get zapped by your neighbor’s meter. Believing that wireless technology is inescapable, I did not opt out of the smart meter program, but I probably would have if not for the financial penalty for doing so. Should you decide, for whatever reason, that you do not want a smart meter broadcasting from your home, the PUC has authorized CMP to charge you a one-time fee of $40 plus $12 a month. That’s $144 a year for life to avoid a possible health risk. Some smart-meter opponents call that extortion. I wouldn’t go that far, but given all the unanswered questions about smart meters, I do believe that the financial penalty for opting out should be eliminated. You shouldn’t have to pay to not get something. CMP fears that if opting out were free, so many customers might do so that the smart-meter network would have too many holes to function effectively. If that turns out to be the case, so be it. A little less radiation in our lives wouldn’t be a bad thing. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Kelp from page 6 Robinson said the DMR is sending a biologist to the sites to review the projects. The biologist will put together a report, which will be mailed to everyone on the DMR’s notification list. After that, the DMR will rule on whether to grant the experimental lease, which will last for three years and cannot be renewed. Dobbins said the kelp farm they currently maintain near Little Chebeague is in a different ocean current than the Jewel and Chebeague locations. “Hopefully at the end of the project we will have characterized what an optimum site looks like,” he said. “This will help us better pick a 10-year site that will produce optimum yields, lowering the cost and allowing for the smallest possible site.”

Left: Paul Dobbins, a co-owner of Ocean Approved, hauls up a line of kelp from the company’s small farm off the coast of Little Chebeague Island in Casco Bay. Ocean Approved has applied for two more experimental leases to try growing kelp in different currents as part of project funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Dobbins and Olson encouraged anyone with concerns about the buoys or the location of the farm to contact them directly. They’ve taken several people out to the existing farm, and to the new locations, and Dobbins said that has assuaged their concerns about navigation and fishing interference.

Fall season passes midway point As September gives way to October, all fall sports are heating up and playoff jockeying is underway. Here’s a glimpse at where local squads stand:

Football Brunswick’s football team continues to make the claim that it’s the best in Eastern Class A. Last Friday, the Dragons blanked Edward Little, 33-0, to improve to 3-1. Brunswick looks to keep the good times going Friday at 1-3 Cony. A year ago, the Dragons lost at home to the Rams, 28-21. Mt. Ararat fell to 0-4 last weekend after a 48-6 setback at powerhouse Lawrence. The Eagles’ task gets no easier Friday when they host 3-1 Bangor, a team that beat them, 32-19, a year ago. In Class B, Morse dropped its third game in a row last weekend, 53-18, at Waterville. The Shipbuilders visit 2-2 Madison Friday.

Morse senior defender Schuyler Mace heads the ball and drives it out of the defensive zone past Oceanside’s Caleb Jacob last week. The teams tied, 2-2.

was home against Erskine Tuesday and Nokomis Thursday and welcomes Mt. Blue next Tuesday.

Cross country

Brunswick hosted Mt. Ararat, Mt. Blue and Morse in a meet last week. The Eagles boys were first, the Dragons second and the Shipbuilders fourth. Mt. Ararat’s Andy Reifman-Packett was the individual winner (16:55). Jamie Ross of Brunswick was runnerup (17:03). Morse’s Nate Stover was 19th (20:09). In the girls’ meet, Mt. Ararat (fifth in the latest coaches’ poll) was first, Brunswick second and Morse fourth. The Dragons did produce the individual winner, Teresa Murphy. Kelly Lynch of Mt. Ararat came in third and Morse’s Amy Franklin placed fourth. Morse hosted Brunswick, Mt. Ararat and Oceanside Thursday.

Boys’ soccer Morse’s boys’ soccer team is turning heads in its first season in Western Class B. The Shipbuilders settled for a 2-2 home tie against Oceanside last Tuesday, despite goals from Cody Snyder and Max Rawson. “I thought we played our best match of the season, but we didn’t get the result,” said Morse coach Tom Rackmales. The Shipbuilders then improved to 5-1-1 Friday after a 3-2 home win over Gardiner. Snyder, Rawson and Paul Whalen scored. Grady Madden made six saves. “We came out with some fire and urgency in the second half after a very flat first,” said Rackmales. Morse (fourth behind York, defending state champion Yarmouth and Falmouth in the Heal Points standings) was at Camden Hills Tuesday, visits Oak Hill Friday and hosts Leavitt. In Eastern A, Mt. Ararat was 6-0-1 and atop the Heals after a 2-1 overtime home win over Lawrence and a 6-0 home victory over Skowhegan last week. The Eagles were at Mt. Blue Tuesday, hosted Messalonskee Thursday and welcome Lewiston Tuesday of next week. Brunswick was sixth in the region at 4-2-2 after splitting two games last week. The Dragons beat visiting Brewer, 3-0, then lost at defending Class A state champion Bangor, 1-0. Brunswick was at Messalonskee

Girls’ soccer Morse’s girls’ soccer team is also dazzling in Western B.

Tori Field had three goals, Paige Martin added two against Oceanside. In the win over the Tigers, Katie Henrikson had two goals, Field, Christina Stuart and Brianna Williams one apiece. Morse hosted Camden Hills Tuesday, welcomes Oak Hill Friday and goes to Leavitt Tuesday of next week. In Eastern A, Brunswick is second to Bangor in the Heals at 7-1 after a 5-1 home loss to

the Rams Saturday. The Dragons also won at Brewer, 6-0, last week. Brunswick hosted Messalonskee Tuesday and visits Oxford Hills Tuesday of next week. Mt. Ararat won its second straight 2-1 overtime game last Tuesday (at Lawrence), on Libby Ouellette’s game-winner. Christina Levesque also scored. Friday, the Eagles improved to 5-1-1 with a 13-1 romp at Skowhegan. After hosting Mt. Blue and going to Messalonskee Thursday, Mt. Ararat (fifth in the Heals) visits Lewiston Tuesday of next week.

Field hockey Brunswick’s field hockey team is the lone area squad to earn a victory this fall. The Dragons enjoyed a 1-0 triumph at Hampden Academy Satur-

day, then fell to 1-7-1 Monday after a 5-0 loss to Brewer. Brunswick (11th in the Eastern Class A Heal Points standings) hosted Bangor Tuesday, played at Oxford Hills Thursday and welcomes Cony Tuesday of next week. Mt. Ararat was 0-5-4 and ninth in the Heals at press time after losses last week to host Oxford Hills (2-0), visiting Messalonskee (6-0) and host Lawrence (5-0). The Eagles hosted Hampden Tuesday and Bangor Thursday and is at Lewiston Tuesday of next week. In Western B, Morse began the week 0-9-1 and 14th in the standings. After tying host Maranacook, 2-2, last week, the Shipbuilders were defeated by visiting Oceanside (3-1) and host Camden Hills (6-0). Morse


The golf postseason is right around the corner. Brunswick wrapped up the regular season at 10-0 with wins last week over Cony (8.5-0.5) and Mt. Ararat (8-1). The Eagles ended up 4-5. Morse finished 3-7. The girls’ state qualifying match was Wednesday at Willowdale Golf Course in Scarborough. The boys’ state qualifying matches are Monday.

Out & About

September 30, 2011

Fall arts season opens with musicals, symphony By Scott Andrews The annual September slowdown in the performing arts is coming to an end as the fall-winter-spring seasons for several of our area’s producers begins. Lyric Music Theater began its 20112012 program year only a few hours after the autumnal equinox with “Thoroughly Modern Millie” a delightfully light and frothy Broadway tuner based on the movie of the same name. Nothing says “classical music” better than Beethoven, and that’s how Portland Symphony Orchestra maestro Robert Moody will launch his 2011-2012 season. Ludwig van Beethoven’s celebrated “Emperor” concerto is the featured work, with guest pianist Awadagin Pratt doing the solo honors. You have two opportunities to catch this program: Sunday afternoon and Tuesday evening. But before getting too wrapped up in fall, let’s note that Ogunquit Playhouse, which bills itself as “America’s foremost summer theater,” has extended its season quite a bit in recent years. The final show of 2011 opened last week and runs nearly a month into the fall. It’s a superb, fully professional production one of Broadway’s biggest blockbusters, “Miss Saigon.”

‘Miss Saigon’ A tragic love story set against a sweeping backdrop of history is one of the core concepts of Italian grand opera. It’s also the central idea of “Miss Saigon,” a musical that ran 10 years on Broadway. Created by a pair of French writers and consciously crafted on the model of Giacomo Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly,” “Miss Saigon” is a romantic tragedy that blurs many of the boundaries between Broadway and opera. It is also one of the most successful musicals in history. Since its 1989 London West End premiere, “Miss Saigon” has been performed in 10 different languages in 19 countries and its total box

The UPS Store


Jennifer Paz and Gregg Godbrod star in Ogunquit Playhouse’s production of one of Broadway’s all-time emotional blockbusters, “Miss Saigon.”

office numbers have exceeded 31 million people and $1.3 billion. The show won 29 major theatre honors including three Tonys, four Drama Desk Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards and one Theatre World Award. “Miss Saigon” is the third collaboration between two French writers, composer Claude-Michel Schonberg and librettist/ lyricist Alain Boublil. Their prior effort was “Les Miserables,” another mammoth show that had an even longer run than “Miss Saigon.” American lyricist Richard Maltby, Jr. was added to the creative team for “Miss Saigon.” As its final offering of the 2011 season, Ogunquit Playhouse presents and outstanding and profoundly moving, emotionally wrenching production of this masterpiece of musical theater. The story begins in the final chaotic days of the Vietnam War and ends several years later. The principal characters are

an innocent young Vietnamese woman and her lover, an American Marine. Jennifer Paz plays the title character, an appealing woman whose dreams of a better life are dashed by the realities of the conflict. Paz does an outstanding job in taking the audience along on her tragic ride. Also tops are Gregg Godbrod as the American Marine, and Raul Aranas as a crass, cynical Vietnamese nightclub owner whose principal yearning is to escape his native country and live his perverted version of an American Dream, which consists of money, automobiles, cigarettes, food and television. Kudos also go to Nik Walker as a fellow Marine, Austin Ku as an evil Vietcong officer and Amanda Rose as the third point of the romantic triangle that ultimately results in the show’s tragic denouement. Ogunquit Playhouse, a mile south of the village on Route 1, presents “Miss Saigon” through Oct. 23. Call 646-5511.

‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ It’s difficult to imagine a starker contrast between moods and styles than a comparison between “Miss Saigon” and Lyric Music Theater’s season-opener, “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” The latter show is the epitome of light, frothy Broadway entertainment, and Lyric is running an excellent community production through Oct. 8. The 2000 Broadway show was a stage adaptation of the very successful 1967 musical film of the same title, which starred Julie Andrews, Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Channing. The book is by Richard Henry Morris, with music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by Dick Scanlan. The setting is New York City during the Roaring Twenties. The plot follows the adventures of Millie, played by Jenny Woodruff, a young lady who arrives from Kansas intent on obtaining a job as the stenographer for a rich, single, handsome businessman – and marrying him. There’s a second ingenue, played by Josephine Cooper, and two leading men, David Aaron Van Duyne and Christopher Ellis. The comic gem of the show is a schem-

ing woman, played by Cynthia O’Neil, while Jennine Cannizzo plays a nightclub singer. I loved this show. The music is tuneful, the lyrics are clever and bright and the book has a delightful and playful satirical bent. The show is really about the women of the 1920s, with excellent performances given by Woodruff and Cooper. Jonathan Miele, a man associated with Maine State Ballet, is director and choreographer. The show’s several big dance numbers are definitely the best I’ve ever seen at Lyric during the 20 years that I have been covering this topflight community institution. Lyric Music Theater, 176 Sawyer St. in South Portland, presents “Thoroughly Modern Millie” through Oct. 8 with 8 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Call 799-1421.

Portland Symphony Orchestra

Two of the best-known pieces of the classical repertoire plus an exemplar of modern minimalism will be featured on the Portland Symphony Orchestra’s first program of the 2011-2012 season. Maestro Robert Moody will conduct, and the concerts (two dates) will also feature pianist Awadagin Pratt as soloist. The PSO’s 83rd season will open with Michael Torke’s “Bright Blue Music.” Torke is a 50-year-old contemporary American composer who is known for twin influences: jazz and minimalism. “Bright Blue Music” promises to be both colorful and vibrant. Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, known as the “Emperor,” will follow. In 1992, soloist Pratt became the first African-American pianist to win the prestigious Naumberg International Piano Competition. A music professor at the University of Cincinnati, Pratt is also known for his unconventional sartorial choices and his dreadlocks, two traits that he believes help break down barriers to classical music for younger audience members. Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 presents the 19th-century German composer at his most passionate and joyful. The composer himself led the orchestra for its 1885 debut. It was well received and has been a staple of the classical orchestral literature ever since. Portland Symphony Orchestra presents its season-opening program twice at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: Oct. 2 at 2:30 p.m. and Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

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.

Renters from page 1 severe: a 30 percent vacancy rate. According to Dana Totman, president of Avesta Housing and, until this week, vice chairman of the MRRA board, an ideal vacancy rate for a community is between 3 percent and 4 percent. That percentage keeps rents affordable, he said, and isn’t high enough to create a glut. The actual vacancy rates in the greater Brunswick area are much lower than the study’s authors expected, but significantly higher than the ideal. According to the 2010 Census, the vacancy rate in Brunswick was 9.5 percent – nearly twice what it was in 2000. Vacancies also increased in Bath, jumping from 7.8 percent in 2000 to 11.4 percent in 2010, and in Harpswell, which increased from 36.8 percent to 47.3 percent. However that town’s numbers could be much higher than surrounding communities due to the abundance of second homes and seasonal rentals. Topsham appears to have been hit the hardest of the four local communities. Vacancies increased from only 4.4 percent in 2000 – the lowest out of the group – to 12.6 percent in 2010. Rates may have changed since then, since the most recent census data is more than a year old and the Navy base did not officially close until May.

The epicenter and the outliers The fact that Topsham and Bath have higher vacancy rates than Brunswick is not surprising to Leaver. “A lot of people thought Brunswick would be the worst hit and it would spill out from the epicenter, but I think it’s been the complete opposite,” he said. Leaver said in his experience, people who couldn’t find or afford housing in Brunswick three years ago are now able to do so, thanks to the addition of the former Navy housing and the departure of so many Navy personnel. As a result, he thinks surrounding communities have been stuck with more empty homes and apartments than Brunswick. Totman said he believes vacancies are shifting, too. “I don’t think there’s really net growth of households in the Brunswick area yet because we haven’t had the real job growth we hope to achieve eventually,”

he said. When asked where his tenants come from, Schott estimated that a majority are from outlying communities. He said about 12 to 15 percent moved from elsewhere in Brunswick, and another 20 percent were affiliated with the military, especially the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair, or SupShip, program at Bath Iron Works. Schott wouldn’t disclose his vacancy rates, but said that the housing developments he owns at Cook’s Corner, the newest of the units he purchased, are almost full. On McKeen Street in Brunswick and Patriot Commons in Topsham, the largest of the developments, rentals seem to be progressing more slowly. Schott estimated that those areas were about 55 percent occupied, but said Patriot Commons posed a particular challenge. “Topsham, being the oldest housing, is going to be harder to occupy,” he said.

The vacancy problem Whether it’s Schott’s units that are sitting empty, multi-unit apartment buildings or single-family homes, high vacancy rates can be detrimental to a community, Totman said. “When you have a vacancy problem, I think it really starts to tap into the equity of both home owners and multi-family owners, where their buildings depreciate in value and people lose some of the built up equity they have in their homes,” he said. Vacancy can affect other sectors of a local economy, too, Totman said, since a lot of businesses rely on people moving into new apartments and homes and the spending that come with that for things like new furnishings, appliances and renovations. But high vacancy rates can also make it easier for low-income renters to find a place to live, according to John Hodge, president of the Brunswick Housing Authority. In a tight rental market, low-income renters can “end up getting units that are marginal,” he said. “In an open renter’s market they can really look around and find a unit in a neighborhood they really want to be in,” Hodge said. “... It’s obviously allowed more choice for those clients.”

Comment on this story at:

the almost daily Craigslist postings advertising the former Navy units and the fact that all utilities are included, many local landlords and property managers say they don’t directly compete with Schott. “The base housing is not for everybody,” said Robert Whisenant, former president of the Bath-Brunswick landlord’s association and owner of “I’ve probably lost maybe three or four potential renters to the base housing out of 100,” he estimated. He finds that many of his tenants are either looking for detached, single-family homes on larger lots, or they want to rent in-town apartments, neither of which are offered by the former military housing. John Bouchard, who owns 14 units at Oakwood Terrace in Brunswick, also feels unaffected by the addition of Schott’s 700-plus units to the market and said he hasn’t had trouble renting his apartments at all this year. “I don’t think the base was as big a factor as the economy and the unemployment,” he said. Indeed, the economy may play a larger role in the Brunswick-area housing market than Schott plays. Nearly everyone interviewed commented on the changing dynamics in home ownership in the United States, not just in Maine. Hodge said many renters have the income buy a house, but can’t secure loans or are wary of home ownership because they fear for their jobs. “Home ownership isn’t all that it used to be,” Totman said. “That idea of the American dream is eroding a little bit.” That’s why some real estate agents are wondering what will happen when Schott

puts his homes up for sale. Because he purchased just the homes, not the land, from the former Navy housing authority last October, Schott has been unable to sell them. But that will soon change, because he and MRRA are negotiating the sale of the land beneath his properties. When that happens, Whisenant predicted there will be a lot of opportunities for first-time home owners, especially in the McKeen Street development. But Mike Baribeau, owner of Century 21 Baribeau Agency, worried that the addition of new homes into the real estate market would weaken an already ailing sector of the housing market. “We’re already in a tough situation in the real estate market ... it’s going to take us longer to sell those homes” that are already for sale, he said.

The occupants

The housing market in greater Brunswick is certainly working in the favor of at least one group of people: those tenants who are already settled into Schott’s houses and apartments. Hilary Chase is a Freeport school teacher who moved into a single-family home in the McKeen Street development with her family in August. She said she is in no hurry to buy a home in the area – she’s still trying to sell her old house in Scarborough – and enjoys the abundance of parks and green space in the development. She said she likes that the house is affordable and not too crowded, and appreciates that Schott Management clustered tenants together, so that no one is living alone. “We love it here,” Chase said.

Unsung Hero from page 7

“They have a wonderful group of people, and it was great being out on the water.” During her last year at Waynflete, Mette had a bright idea for her independent study project: make a CD of her fiddle music and donate the proceeds to the Friends of Casco Bay. She did just that. Her 14-track debut CD, “First Day,” which includes several of her own compositions, came out in June, and she was able to donate $1,000 to the organization as a result. “Meghan’s interdisciplinary approach to life is so enriching to be around,” said Cathy Ramsdell, Friends of Casco Bay executive director. “She’s a star at whatever she does.” Mette’s future looks as bright as her past, too. She’s been accepted to Oberlin College, where she’ll major in marine biology and minor in music. But first she’ll spend some time in Ireland at University College in Cork, where she’ll delve even deeper into traditional Irish fiddle music. “You can just walk into a pub, sit down and play with other people,” Mette said. “You learn three or four tunes in a session and make some new friends.” Mette has already made a big difference in her life, and she’ll continue to do so, propelled by her focus and enthusiasm. “There’s so much wrong in the world; we have a lot to conquer,” she said. “You have to start somewhere.”

Jetport from page 1 dealing with baggage in a different way. Big changes for the state’s biggest airport.

What you should know Currently, the Portland Jetport has 150,000 square feet of space, with six ticket counters downstairs and, upstairs, seven gates and a small security screening area. The $75 million expansion project ($66 million funded from the $4.50 user fee on each ticket and $9 million from the federal government for an advanced baggage system) adds a 137,000-square-foot, three-level section to the airport, nearly doubling the size. When construction is complete in February: • All ticket counters will move to the ground floor of the new section. • All departure gates will remain on the second floor, with three new gates added to the second floor of the new section. (The Jetport can also add a fourth gate immediately and has room to add others later should another airline want to operate out of the airport.) • Security will move to the more spacious third floor of the new section. So, for the typical traveler with checked luggage, the new configuration, when completed in February, will mean checking in at the new ticket counter at 5

ground level, taking a staircase, escalator or elevator to the new third floor for security, then going down to the second-floor gates for departure. There will be other changes too, including: • Separate traffic lanes dividing drivers who are dropping off travelers from those who are parking or picking up new arrivals from the baggage claim area. When construction is complete in February, the right lanes will be reserved for dropping off passengers, while the left lanes will be reserved for picking up arriving travelers or parking. (Between Oct. 2 and February 2012, the right lane will be reserved for dropping off only JetBlue and U.S. Airways passengers; all other traffic will use the left lane. If you’re dropping off grandma for her Delta flight to Florida, don’t worry. The left lane will still allow you to drop her off at the curb.) • In addition to the ground-level entrance into the terminal, passengers will also be able to walk directly into the airport from the third floor of the parking garage. That entrance will be on the same level as gate security, allowing travelers with only carry-on luggage to park their cars, walk into the airport, pick up a boarding pass at a nearby kiosk and go through security screening, all within steps. • An additional security screening lane (from four lanes to five), plus additional equipment and space for screenings.

airport will now have a dedicated area for screened travelers to put on their shoes, gather belongings and place laptops back in their cases. “What I call the recombobulation area,” said Paul Bradbury, airport director. By the end of October the Jetport will also have for the first time three full-body scanners. The scanners will show shapes, but provide no enhanced image. • Separate flow lanes within the airport for arriving and departing passengers, so arriving passengers don’t get tangled in security checkpoint lines and departing passengers don’t get confused about where they should go. • A new way to deal with checked luggage. Currently, travelers must schlep checked bags from the ticket counter to a security agent after check-in. Once construction is finished, checked luggage will be taken immediately by ticket agents; travelers will no longer be responsible for delivering their bags to a

Built in 1968 and renovated twice, the Jetport’s terminal has historically been a standard commercial building mix of carpet, tile and concrete walls. The design for the addition: granite, wood and lots and lots of glass. It’s sleek. It’s modern. It’s memorable. (At least airport leaders hope so.) “We are selling Portland, Maine, as a destination,” Bradbury said. “Some of the architecture we looked at was Commercial Street, downtown Portland. When you go into what are now cafes, but used to be former ship buildings for handling all the materials coming in for the merchant industry, (there are) big robust wood beams. So this (design) tried to speak to it. ... The old terminal was tinted glass, white precast (concrete), it could have been Miami. This really is speaking to Maine.” But the glass – both inside and out – is more than a marketing ploy or pretty design. It’s also a navigational tool for confused and harried travelers. continued next page

Stocker said more than 140 people attended the Sept. 18 service, held at Beth Israel Congregation of Bath; before the fire, attendance rarely topped 100. “One common hope is that the (new) structure is bigger, so we can accommodate everyone in a single service,” Heath said. Economics also played a role in the congregation’s decision. Stocker said rebuilding the church will likely be more expensive than building a new one, because of extensive roof and steeple damage. The entire back of the church would also have to be rebuilt. Either way, the church must be reinforced before winter to withstand snow and wind, and those repairs could be costly. Any reinforcements would not be

Jetport from previous page Once the addition opens in October, airline passengers will be able to see into and around the massive new building. Each section allows passengers to view the next: when you drive up, you can see the ticketing area; when you enter the third level of the addition from the garage, you can see security; when you go through security, you can see the departure gates.

There are other special features you might be interested in. Mood lighting anyone?

part of rebuilding the church, just extra money spent, Heath said. He said no one from the church has met with the Village Review Board, and they are just beginning that process. They’re also working with an architect, who is expected to submit three concept designs for a new church that congregation members will vote on by the end of November. In the meantime, the congregation is raising money for repairs and reconstruction through their website, So far they’ve received $27,000, and UU churches around the country have sent items like hymnals, to replace items destroyed in the fire. Stocker said she still gets chills when she remembers standing outside the church the night of the fire, watching it burn. But she said the experience has been “a mixed blessing,” because area churches and synagogues, and the Curtis chosen for the season. It’s decoration. Mostly. “I promise you there will not be a lot of reds, because red’s an anxiety mood. There will be a lot of blues and greens,” said Gregory Hughes, airport marketing manager. “I think reds in an airport is a little risky.” If pretty colored lights aren’t your thing, maybe history will be. High above the entrance to security, the Jetport has stationed “Antoinette,” a mock-up of an early 1900s plane courtesy of the Owls Head Transportation Museum. The old wooden plane – whose hull was capable of floating, making it part boat – was the height of technology in its era. “It almost made it across the English channel,” Bradbury said. For those travelers who want something more functional than decorative, you can’t get much more useful than a water bottle filler. Located both in the current and new gate areas, the special

The damaged back of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick has been removed, and its charred remains are covered with a tarp. At right, asign in front of the church informs congregation members where services are being held, and invites donations to the re-building fund.

Memorial Library, have offered meeting and prayer space, enabling services to continue. “We’re feeling very held by the community,” she said. “It’s a mix of hardship and blessing.” Heath said the fire brought the congregation closer and gave the members a

common purpose. “It’s not all happy,” he said, “but it does draw us together.”

water bottle stations are designed to allow travelers to fill their water bottles without the splash and hassle of filling up at a water fountain. And without the expense of buying $2 bottled water every time Junior gets thirsty. The Jetport will also expand its restaurant offerings, with Great American Bagel coming to the current gate area and a food court coming to the new gate area, complete with Starbucks, Burger King and Linda Bean’s, a restaurant that also offers live lobster packed to go for passengers waiting to board a plane. If your young traveler would rather play with a crustacean than eat one, Linda Bean’s will also feature a touch tank – think petting zoo for sea creatures – though it’s unclear whether the sea life will be fully touchable in the wake of concerns about water on the new airport floor. Shipyard Brewing will stay in the current gate area. All restaurants will open with Phase 1

on Oct. 2. Maine retail stores Cool As A Moose and DownEast will open in a single space in the new gate area in December. For those concerned more about the environment than dinner, the Jetport has created environmentally friendly features, including a massive geothermal heating and cooling system with 120 thermal wells drilled 500 feet deep. The goal: save 50,000 gallons of oil a year. To show its commitment to the environment, the airport is planning to apply for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gold certification. Jetport leaders know of only one other airport that has LEED gold, in San Francisco. Making the project green takes both time and investment. But airport leaders believe it will pay off in lower operating costs and a better environment “If a project like the Jetport doesn’t do it,” Bradbury said, “who will?” Lindsay Tice is a staff writer at the Sun Journal in Lewiston.
