SAD 75 board to get updated proposal for shutting school By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — School Administrative District 75 Superintendent Mike Wilhelm plans to bring a completed application

to close West Harpswell School to the School Board on Oct. 14. If the board approves the application, SAD 75 will submit it to the state Department of Edu-

cation the following day, with a copy to go to Harpswell. The application process includes a fiscal 2010 audit to determine the cost to keep

the school open. Last year, the school district determined the cost for one year, based on fiscal 2009 numbers, was $219,000. Harpswell had to pay

that amount in March after its citizens voted 906-827 against closing the school. See page 26

By Phil DiVece BRUNSWICK — Plans for building a new police station at Pleasant and Stanwood streets hit a hurdle this week after opponents of the location began circulating a petition to force a referendum on the land purchase. The petition drive is being led by Karen Klatt of 32 Moody Road, a former District 4 town councilor, who along with her husband and several other residents filed the necessary paperwork at the town office Sept. 24. The petition seeks to overrule by referendum the Town Council’s Sept. 20 approval of a $1.175 million bond package for the land purchase. The proposed 1.61-acre site is made up of four contiguous lots, including the former Brunswick House of Pizza. “I feel that amount of money spent on any real estate acquisition for any reason should be voted on by ‛the people,” Klatt said in an e-mail. She further noted the town’s assessed value of the four lots is $156,000 and questioned how the market value can be more than $1 million. “I will be asking for the appraisals on that property that the town councilors viewed before voting, but I have a feeling there is no appraisal,” she said. Reached Wednesday for further comment, Klatt said there will be about half a dozen people going door-to-door with petitions. “I honestly don’t think we’ll have any trouble getting enough signatures,” she said. “People have been calling me asking where they can sign the petition.” Klatt said the Sept. 20 ordinance passed by the Council doesn’t state the land acquisition will be used for construction of a police station.

“Until they change the wording in the ordinance to include (the stated purpose), it’s not concrete. They can intend whatever they want, but it has to be in the ordinance.” Town Manager Gary Brown said the petitions must be returned by 4:30 p.m., Oct. 10, or within 20 days from the date the council adopted the ordinance authorizing acquisition of the land, issuance of the bonds and notes. Brown said the Town Charter stipulates after a petition is submitted and validated the council is obligated to hold a public hearing within 30 days. Following the public hearing the Council can either reverse its decision or schedule a special referendum. “I would anticipate the council not reversing its decision,” he said, adding the soonest a special referendum could be held would be mid-December. Brown said an agenda item will be included for the council’s Oct. 4 meeting to clarify that the ordinance intent is for a proposed police station. “We’ve had three public discussions on this – Aug. 16, Sept. 7 and then the public hearing on Sept. 20. I think the intent for use of that property has been made very clear,” he said. The $1.175 million ordinance approved by the council included just over $1 million for purchase of the properties, with the remainder for demolition, site cleanup, legal expenses and other fees, including more than $50,000 in real estate commission and $30,000 earmarked for contingencies. The petition took council Chairwoman Joanne King by surprise. See page 25

Pair charged with attempted murder, other crimes By Phil DiVece BRUNSWICK — A second man was arrested last week in connection with an ongoing investigation involving the assault and stabbing of a 26-year-old man at his home on Stanwood Street. Manessah Massaline, 40, of 17 Federal St. was arrested Massaline without incident at 9:30 a.m., Sept. 24, after an investigation led police to a High Street residence in Bath. The following day, Topsham Police filed charges of robbery, elevated aggravated assault and kidnapping against both men stemming from an incident that had reportedly occurred the night

of Sept. 18. Police Cmdr. Marc Hagan said Massaline was charged Sept. 24 with aggravated criminal trespass, burglary, elevated aggravated assault and aggravated attempted murder. Bath Police and the Sagadahoc Sheriff’s McClain Department assisted in the investigation and arrest. Massaline is the second person arrested following an alleged assault on Sept. 20 that left the victim with a stab wound to the chest caused by a knife, multiple fractures and a head injury. Hagan declined to identify the victim, but said he was treated and released at Maine Medical Center in Portland. He

said another person was in the room with the victim and witnessed the alleged assault. Hagen declined comment about a motive, saying the case remains under investigation. On Sept. 22, Paul McClain, 41, of 1268 Washington St., Bath, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, burglary, elevated aggravated assault, attempted robbery and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon. The case led to the two men being connected to an earlier incident, which took place the night of Sept. 18 at a residence on Main Street in Topsham. A 33-year-old Brunswick man sustained cuts and swelling to his face and was allegedly held against his will, according to Topsham Police Lt. Chris Lewis. The victim, who was robbed of prescription medications, was later treated at Parkview Adventist Medical Center and released, Lewis said. Massaline and McClain were charged by Topsham Police with robbery, elevated

McClain’s bail was set at $1,000 cash or $10,000 in property, while Massaline’s was set at $250,000 cash or $500,000 in property. They are both scheduled to appear in court in December. Hagan said both men have a criminal history. According to Detective Sgt. Martin Rinaldi’s report, police arrested Massaline after they conducted a surveillance operation. Rinaldi said the Maine Violent Crimes Task Force and Maine Drug Enforcement Agency assisted with the investigation and members of the Violent Crimes Task Force were at the scene for the arrest.

Board of Selectmen: 3 compete for 2 seats in Topsham By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — Selectman Sandra Consolini faces competition from Marie Brillant and Andrew Mason in her bid for a second, three-year term. Two seats on the board are up for grabs. Selectman Steve Edmondson is not seeking re-election. There are also two seats open on the Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/69254

School Administrative District 75 Board of Directors. Scott McKernan is running for another three-year term while another Topsham resident whose term is expiring, James Cusano, decided not to run again. With no one else on the ballot, the second School Board seat is open to write-in candidates. Cusano was appointed in March to fill the unexpired term of Robert Hill.

Marie Brillant Brillant, 53, has lived in Maine since 1997 and is a cook at Mt. Ararat Middle School. She is married and has two daughters, both of whom are in college. This would be Brillant’s first foray on a town board or committee. “I hear a lot of Brillant people complaining about the way things are being done, and I’m hoping maybe I could help, and maybe get the town to get to work for the people,” Brillant said. The nature of the town’s growth is one issue she said she has heard expressed by her fellow residents. Brillant, who had been a dairy farmer for 16 years, noted the importance of preserving Topsham’s traditional rural aspects while helping it to grow. “I feel as though I’m a conservative person, but not opposed to looking at growth in a healthy way for the town,” she said.

Sandra Consolini Consolini, 60, is married and has twin sons. Her work experience has included being a bookkeeper for KB Toys at its home office, a commissions processor at the MassMutual Consolini Life Insurance Co. in Massachusetts and a certified nursing assistant. “I’ve always loved helping people, whether it’s on a personal level (or) a professional level,” Consolini said. “When I did run (for the Board of Selectmen) and I won, I found out I get extreme satisfaction out of helping the citizens; I really do. That’s the reason why I ran again. ... I love the damn job.” She said she feels she has achieved a lot for the town, and there is still more she would like to do. Among accomplishments, she listed tax increment financing information meet-

ings she initiated, a grant she secured for cabinets to display historical items at the Topsham Municipal Building, and having applicant information for a proposed cell tower in the Heights neighborhood available for the public at the library. “I ask a lot of questions,” Consolini said. “So much so that I was asked a while back not to ask so many questions, but I still do.” Along with choosing its selectmen, Topsham voters in November will vote on a referendum question that calls for a ban on new cell towers in the Urban Residential Zone. The companies that wanted to build a tower there sued the town last month to receive permits the Planning Board denied in June. Consolini said she could not discuss the lawsuit, but said “personally, I don’t think a cell phone tower should be in the midst of a highly densely-populated area.” Development is another key issue that Consolini said concerns her. She stressed the need to maintain an open dialog be-

tween developers, citizens and the Board of Selectmen. “If we can continue that, that would be the greatest thing,” she said. “Because then people would feel involved.” Another perpetual concern of Consolini’s is the budget. With less money coming from the state, she said, taxes have gone up, despite recent bare-bones town budgets. “It makes it very hard to explain to people that it’s not the town that in essence is raising your taxes,” she said.

Teen rescued after jump from Wood bridge BRUNSWICK — Police and emergency crews rescued a 14-year-old Topsham girl from the Androscoggin River Monday afternoon after she leaped from the Frank J. Wood bridge on Maine Street. Cmdr. Marc Hagan said the girl landed in a shallow portion of the river and didn’t receive life-threatening injuries.

STATE OF MAINE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NOTICE OF A PUBLIC INFORMATIONAL MEETING FOR THE

ROUTE 196 CORRIDOR TRAFFIC STUDY TOPSHAM, LISBON, AND LEWISTON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2010

7:00 pm at the Lewiston City Council Chambers The Maine Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Office of the Governor, the Maine Office of Redevelopment and Re-employment, the Towns of Topsham, Lisbon, and the City of Lewiston is conducting a Traffic Study of the Route 196 Corridor. The Study Corridor will extend from I-295 in Topsham to I-95 in Lewiston. This study will serve to guide future infrastructure investments for this corridor. The purpose of this second meeting is to review the study progress, discuss the future operating conditions and potential corridor improvements, and to solicit additional public input. This is the second of three public meetings that will be held on this Study. Representatives of the Study Team will be present at the Lewiston City Council Chambers in City Hall located on 27 Pine Street on Wednesday October 6, 2010 at 7:00 pm. The meeting is expected to last approximately 2 hours concluding by 9:00 pm. Accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities. Auxiliary aids will be provided upon advanced request. Children, accompanied by a parent, are welcome. Any inquiries regarding this study may be directed to the attention of Chris Mann, Project Manager, Maine Department of Transportation, Bureau of Transportation Systems Planning, 16 State House Station, Augusta, Maine 04333-0016. Telephone (207) 624-3300. Project Identification Number 016314.00 TTY Telephone (207) 624-3007 or (207) 287-3392

Police and emergency crews were on the scene minutes after motorists reported seeing the girl jump at around 2:30 p.m. Hagan said police used the Marine Patrol boat to reach the girl, who was taken to the Water Street boat launch and later transported to Mid Coast Hospital. The heavily traveled bridge is adjacent to Fort Andross Mill and connects Brunswick to Topsham.

Mason, who serves on the Topsham Development board, said “we’ve got a wonderful staff in town, and a lot of dedicated people working hard on committees, to try to move things forward and make life better in Topsham, but there just seems to be a sense that when things get up to the Board of Selectmen, that things aren’t getting done. “...

Additionally, staff members will help individual consumers with their specific cases. The session is being hosted jointly by Brunswick state Reps. Alex Cornell du Houx, Peter Kent and Charlie Priest. Consumers unable to attend the event can obtain insurance information and assistance by visiting the bureau’s offices in Gardiner, going online to www.maine. gov/insurance, or calling the bureau’s toll-free number 1-800-300-5000.

He said he does not support cell towers being placed in residential districts.

The redevelopment of the Brunswick Naval Air Station annex in Topsham is a key issue for Mason, one he said he addresses through his involvement with Topsham Development. The town must not squander its redevelopment opportunities, he said.

“When I came on the board there had been a study done that showed that Topsham is significantly underutilized in terms of its manufacturing job base, and that we need to grow more of that,” Mason said.

Another issue he noted is Topsham’s approach to quality of life projects.

“To a lot of people, the quality of life has become a four-letter word,” Mason said. “... People don’t seem to recognize how quality of life interacts with growing jobs. It’s beyond just a pretty park for the people who happen to live there. It actually helps make it a focus for recruitment for businesses that want to come there.”

Re-elect Prescott to the House Beem on target about Arizona Thank you for publishing such a refreshing piece about Arizona’s SB1070. Edgar Allen Beem provided a factual, intelligent, respectable explanation of the absurdity of SB1070. It’s nice to know there are people out there who know the facts and understand the corrupt economic force behind this bill. Of course people are making money from it – that’s why Jan Brewer signed it. Unfortunately, that’s how our country works. It’s up to us, the citizens, to demand comprehensive immigration reform that focuses on compassion for humans who make this country a better place. I support amnesty. Just think of how much it will build our economy when we bring immigrants out of the shadows and they pay taxes, buy more goods, and

participate fully in the community and the economy. Yes, most pay taxes now, and with legalization, they all will, which can only benefit our economy. Nicole Hawkes Vineyard Haven, Mass.

Beem column points to LePage With regards to Edgar Allen Beem’s column, “Cutler’s anonymous critics keep the biggest secret,” I’d like to go out on that limb and guess. First let me say that while I don’t always agree with Beem’s points like gay marriage, he’s a real treat to read; we’re both liberals, although I call myself a conservative liberal. Anyway, my guess is that while the person or persons behind the Cutler Files may well be acting on their own, my gut says the motive is to benefit that guy from Waterville who’s running for governor. Anonymous writers have always played a role in the history of the world, but generally it’s to serve beyond a self-serving interest. I don’t know what is going to happen in November, but this campaign for governor has quite a few similarities to the 2008 presidential campaign, where bloggers on the net tried to distort President Obama’s life and beliefs. When people vote from a position of hate, fear and distortions it can very well lead to negative repercussions. If we are to rise above one in seven living in poverty, it has to go beyond Waterville and shady financial dealings here and elsewhere. John W. Russell Old Orchard Beach

Kerri Prescott has been an outstanding legislator and representative for Topsham. She has been a strong, common-sense voice for fiscal responsibility and legislative accountability. We can’t afford to lose her presence in the state Legislature. I have contacted her on several occasions about various legislative issues and proposed legislation. In each instance, she has been responsive, knowledgeable and supportive. I encourage my fellow citizens in Topsham to support her reelection. Ron Chase Topsham

Back Horch in Brunswick I am voting for the highest quality leader, not for the party. I am voting for Fred Horch, a hard-working man of integrity with short- and long-range vision. It is special to have such a knowledgeable and thoughtful person running in House District 66. I know he is running to be an advocate for the people in this area in particular at the same time taking into consideration for what is best for everyone in the state. I believe he is not running to make a name for himself but truly to serve the community. I know Fred Horch through his business. His free advice over the counter has saved me a lot of money on heating bills. I want to vote for the person I think is best for the job, not for the usual political party. That is why I am switching and voting for Fred Horch. Marji Greenhut Brunswick

Over the years Denise has volunteered at the Topsham Library and with Senior Spectrum Generations of Topsham. She has served on the SAD 75 board and as a member of the town finance committee, all of which reflect her commitment to

community. Denise Tepler is a neighbor who you run into around town: at the Town Office, the Farmer’s Market or at the grocery store. She loves food and shares her passion for healthy habits in her weekly food column. She and I also talked about recent medical issues that deeply effected our lives for a few months in very different ways. Denise shared information about ways to get and benefit from local health services. She expressed a sincere empathy for those who suffer temporary or permanent illness. I will vote, without a doubt, for Denise Tepler, who I believe will represent my community with honesty and genuine concern for what matters locally and at the state level. Patricia Maloney Topsham

Senators must close finance loophole

Earlier this year in its Citizens United v. FEC decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations, unions and other organizations may make unlimited political expenditures to elect or defeat candidates. Although the court endorsed disclosure of these contributions, there is a loophole in campaign finance law that allows groups to avoid disclosing fund sources – and even foreign corporations can now spend freely and secretly in American elections. There is currently legislation pending in the Senate, the DISCLOSE Act, which would establish new disclosure requirements for corporations, labor unions, advocacy groups and trade associations. Unfortunately, our senators recently voted against letting the Senate even debate the bill. After Citizens United, strong campaign finance laws like the DISCLOSE Act are essential and are supported by the public. In a recent poll, more than 80 percent of Mainers said they strongly support campaign finance disclosure and transparency. Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins should work with their Senate colleagues to come up with a version of the DISCLOSE Act they can support. If the Senate does not act, there is nothing to prevent big moneyed interests – both domestic and foreign – from secretly influencing our elections. Voters deserve to know who is behind election advertising and Maine citizens have said they want to know. Our senators have never shied away from independent action in the past and we need them now more than ever. Jill Ward League of Women Voters of Maine South Portland

Conflicted lies the head that wears 2 hats It can be a challenge sometimes for local elected officials, often among the most active, motivated and involved members of our communities, to take off one hat and put on another. That’s what we believe happened last week in Freeport, where Town Councilor Sara Gideon cast a deciding vote to forgive nearly $117,000 loaned by the town to the Freeport Community Center. Besides being a councilor, Gideon is a trustee of the community center, an affiliation she has made no attempt to hide. Did her vote on a matter of financial significance to the center violate either state law or the Town Charter? Apparently not, because it afforded Gideon no personal financial gain. But did it violate the faith we place in our elected officials? There were only four councilors available to vote on the loan forgiveness proposal; two others were absent and one, Eric Pandora, abstained because he wanted further discussion of the agreement by the full council. Gideon, who recognized the appearance of a conflict of interest, could have abstained, too. That would have resulted in the lack of a quorum and delayed the vote Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/68693

until enough councilors were available to make a fully informed and thoroughly vetted decision. She also could have voted – despite her affiliation with the center – against the proposal. That would have defeated the plan, but dispelled any suggestion that her vote was tainted by the outside relationship. Unfortunately, Gideon did neither of those things. She may have complied with the letter of the law by disclosing the appearance of a conflict. But the problem with the appearance of a conflict is that no matter how

Langlais in limbo As the Portland Public Art Committee ponders whether to dismantle and store “Tracing the Fore,” the stillborn sculptural installation in Boothby Square, its members might do well to consider the fate of another dismantled work of art that has been languishing in limbo for the past 30 years. In 1979, less than two years after sculptor Bernard “Blackie” Langlais died, the new The Universal owners of the Samoset Resort in Rockland removed the whimsical wooden fountain he had created for the resort, a 24-foot composition of pier pilings and carpentered sea birds and mammals. The original owners had gone bankrupt, Langlais had never been paid, and his widow disowned the desecrated fountain. Edgar Allen Beem The Portland Museum of Art came to the rescue, taking possession of the Langlais fountain. For the past 30 years, the museum has been paying to store the pieces of the fountain – a pile of pilings and 18 sea creatures – in a Portland warehouse at a mounting cost now in the tens of thousands of dollars. “My sense,” says Thomas Denenberg, Portland Museum of Art deputy director and chief curator, “is that the museum never should have been involved from the get-go. It’s a work that the estate has said is no longer the work of the artist because it has been removed from its context and mistreated.” Earlier this year, Denenberg took Jack Soley, chairman of the Portland Public Art Committee, to

the Earle W. Noyes warehouse to view the remains of the Langlais fountain. Soley thought the wooden birds might be used to mark Portland’s new Bayside Trail, but the legal and artistic limbo the fountain is in, not to mention the fragile physical condition, convinced Soley that wasn’t such a good idea after all. Soley has had his eye on another outdoor Langlais sculpture, the great Trojan Horse that stands in front of the late artist’s farmhouse in Cushing, but it seems unlikely that Langlais’s landmark wooden horse will end up in Portland. When Helen Langlais, Blackie’s widow, died earlier this year, the Langlais estate was left to the Colby College Museum of Art, which will select the pieces it wants to keep, disperse the rest, and sell the farm. The great horse would look wonderful standing beside the Colby museum, overlooking the athletic fields where the White Mules play. As for the dismembered and disowned Samoset fountain, there is now talk of trying to place it, or pieces of it, not with Colby, but perhaps with another Maine museum. “If there were an entity that could take care of it,” Denenberg says, “I’d be happy to enter into a conversation.” He suggests, however, that the only future he can imagine for the rotting remains of the Langlais fountain is as a case study for a graduate thesis is art history. If Portland does decide to de-accession “Tracing the Fore,” it might be better off scrapping it altogether, rather than consigning it to limbo in hopes of someday resurrecting it.

Free energy guide for towns, citizens PORTLAND — The Greater Portland Council of Governments, with the help of their funding partner, Clean Air – Cool Planet, has released a free guide entitled “The Maine Energy Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide to Municipal Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Energy.” The guide aims to help municipalities and citizen volunteers navigate the world of energy efficiency by serving as a resource for community grants, with tools to measure energy use and tips on how to establish and run a green energy com-

mittee. It also includes detailed plans and laws already in use by other Maine towns. The guide is divided into six sections: connect with helpful resources, organize efforts, assess energy use, identify efficiency options, identify financing opportunities, and evaluate and implement measures. Maine Municipal Association is distributing the guide to all towns and cities in Maine. It can also be downloaded for free at gpcog.org.

Easy ways to ward off winter weight gain With winter on the horizon once again, the familiar retreat indoors is in full swing. With the colder weather comes less time spent outside, and more time spent on the couch. While it’s difficult for those who live in areas with particularly harsh winters to do much of anything outdoors once the temperatures begin their annual descent, it’s not that difficult for cold-climate dwellers to continue emphasizing their health during such months. However, the colder climes coupled with the holidays make it easy to ignore healthier habits during the winter. As a result, many people pack on extra pounds throughout the winter months, taking advantage of all those holiday goodies while also using the bitter weather as an excuse to avoid daily exercise or healthy habits. Just because the weather outside is frightful doesn’t mean the attitude inside should be an unhealthy one. In fact, there are many ways for those stuck inside to stay healthy this winter, no matter how

many feet of snow have piled up outside. * Brown bag it. Instead of visiting the office cafeteria or the nearby food truck for lunch, pack your own lunch instead. Doing so gives individuals complete control over their own diets, enabling them to eat healthy foods instead of the often processed foods available at cafeterias or other locales that cater to the office lunch crowd. When packing lunch, choose foods that won’t be energy drainers for the afternoon. It’s often difficult enough to maintain energy after lunch when the weather is cold and leaving the office isn’t an option. Choose foods that will boost energy, such as fruits and vegetables. * Avoid missing meals. Perhaps due to the often hectic holiday season, many people find themselves eating whenever they can and not necessarily when they should once winter arrives. Though it can be difficult to make time during the holidays, it’s imperative to stay on a meal schedule. Skipping meals often leads to

347-7148

The healthy, nutritious, delicious way to weight loss and better health

overeating, as it’s human nature to overcompensate for a missed meal by eating more when the chance presents itself. The side effects of overeating are well known and, if coupled with the more sedentary lifestyle many people live during the winter, can result in serious physical problems before the season is over. * Change eating habits. Competitive bodybuilders call it “grazing,” eating several smaller, healthier meals throughout the day instead of sitting down to the more widely accepted three meals per day. Such a schedule might seem radical, but it’s highly effective if done correctly. Grazing effectively helps keep blood sugar levels stable throughout the day, so people won’t get the hunger pangs they otherwise might. However, when grazing, it’s important to limit calorie consumption. It’s very easy for beginning “grazers” to overdo it with each meal, as they’re used to eating meals with lots of calories. But eating six meals per day with too many calories will likely prove disastrous. Instead, limit

meals to between 200 to 300 calories and stick to the schedule of eating every 2 to 3 hours. While it will likely prove a difficult adjustment at first, the results will begin to show and energy levels could rise as well. * Say so long to sugar-laden drinks. Most people would admit they eat too much sugar during the holidays. But even when the holidays have come and gone, chances are there are plenty of ways for health-conscious men and women to reduce their sugar intakes. Perhaps no way to do that is more effective than to say so long to sugary beverages, including sodas and seasonal beverages like hot chocolate. Even everyday drinks like coffee and tea can be enjoyed without sugar. It’s easy to find non- or reduced-sugar hot chocolate, and those who like sugar in their coffee can either enjoy it without sugar or simply reduce how much sugar they put in their morning cup o’ Joe. Oftentimes, what we drink is far more sugar laden than what we eat, so be on the lookout for beverages that are high in sugar.

A leaf-peeper’s lobster brunch Invite your leaf-peeping friends to an elegant brunch that will remind them of a summer lobster bake. The menu features lobster pecorino frittata, an interesting mixture of home fries, sauteed onion, fresh corn kernals, lobster meat and parsley held together with eggs, butter and cream topped with grated Romano cheese. Spicy zucchini with mint (zucchini, onion, lemon, fresh mint and red pepper flakes) accompanies the frittata and will help sleepy people stay awake to view Maine’s colorful leaves. The recipes are from “Bubby’s Brunch Cookbook: Recipes and Menus from New York’s Favorite Comfort Food Restaurant,” by Ron Silver and Rosemary Black, published by Ballantine Books in 2009. Ron Silver, chef-owner of the beloved 20-year old downtown Manhattan restaurant, Bubby’s Pie Company, gives us his best brunch recipes and menus. Learn how to make your own pastrami, or for something easier, try blueberry scones, banana walnut pancakes, smoked trout cakes, blintzes or a Cajun omelet.

Silver includes recipes for the traditional brunch libations and adds a few new drinks such as watermelon lemonade, which you could take in your Thermos to sip during a leaf-peeping hike. As the Canada geese are flying south, people flock to Maine to enjoy the colorful autumn foliage. The leaves turn yellow, red, scarlet, purple and brown – sharp colors on sunny days, muted colors on rainy or foggy days, and contrasting with the stark white trunks of birch trees and the black trunks of maples and oaks. Drive on Maine’s highways and see sturdy stands of scarlet sumacs contrasted with quivering yellow poplar leaves, or take a fall foliage hike or canoe trip led by a Maine ranger. Information about ranger-led viewing is available at maine.gov. On Sunday, Oct. 3 at 10 a.m., enjoy a three-mile walk through a colorful wooded forest at Sebago Lake State Park, or, on that same day and time, talk a half-hour walk up Pownal’s Bradbury Mountain, where you can see all the way to the coast. On Saturday, Oct. 9 at 10 a.m., go to the Turner Boat Launch off Center Bridge Road in Turner for the Androscoggin Riverlands Fall Foliage Paddle, led by the Androscoggin Land Trust. And on Sunday, Oct. 10, go to Camden Hills State Park at 1 p.m. and take the 2½-mile hike up Mount Battie. Regular entrance fees apply for these guided trips.

1/2 cup heavy cream 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 red onion, finely diced Kernels from 2 ears fresh corn 1/4 cup chopped parsley 1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Scrub the potato and prick it in several places with a fork. Place the potato on the oven rack and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, depending on its size. When the potato is soft, remove it from the oven and set it aside to cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Set a colander in the bottom of a deep, wide stockpot and fill the stockpot with water to a depth of about 1 1/2 inches. Salt the water generously. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. When the water boils, place the lobster into the colander. Cover the pot, lower the heat to a simmer, and steam the lobster for about 15 minutes. Remove the lobster from the pot and plunge it into cold water to stop the cooking. Let cool completely. Once the lobster has cooled, remove the meat and cut it into bite-size pieces. Set aside. Without removing its skin, cut the potato in half lengthwise. Cut each half into halfinch-thick half-moon slices. Using a whisk or a fork, beat the eggs in a medium bowl until frothy. Beat in the heavy cream. Heat 4 tablespoons of the butter in a 10inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the potato slices and turn the heat to medium-high. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the potatoes, continuously flipping them with a spatula, until browned. Don’t worry – the potatoes won’t fall apart from all the handling. Watch carefully and don’t allow them to burn.

add the red onion and corn. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are starting to color. To ensure that the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan, run a spatula along the edges and bottom to dislodge any vegetables that adhere to the pan. Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter to the pan and allow to melt and begin to sizzle. Add the lobster and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the eggs evenly over the mixture in the pan. Sprinkle with the Pecorino cheese. Bake the frittata for 8 to 10 minutes, or until it begins to puff up slightly. It should still be a little runny in the very center. Allow the frittata to stand for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve. Serves 6. Spicy Zucchini with Mint 3 zucchini sliced into 1/4-inch rounds 2 tablespoons kosher salt, plus more to taste 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup finely diced red onion Juice of 1/2 lemon 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes Place the zucchini in a colander, sprinkle it with the salt, and allow it to sit for 20 to 30 minutes. The salt will extract the water from the zucchini, so put a bowl underneath to catch the water. Alternatively, set the colander in the sink so the water drains into the sink. Rinse the zucchini thoroughly under cold running water for about 30 seconds to remove the salt. Firmly pat the zucchini very dry with paper towels. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Toss the zucchini with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large bowl. Arrange the zucchini in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Cool for about 10 minutes. Combine the zucchini, red onion, remaining 1/4 cup olive oil, lemon juice, mint, and red pepper flakes in a serving bowl until well combined. Taste, and add salt, to taste, if necessary. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for about 1 hour before serving. Serves 6 to 8.

Drama, triumph continue for Mid-Coast teams

Mt. Ararat senior Jaymee Wallace goes way up and contorts her body to get to the ball Tuesday. The Eagles were 3-0 home winners over Cony and improved to 6-2 on the season.

By Michael Hoffer As the stretch run of the 2010 fall sports season grows nearer, teams are keeping a closer eye on the standings and will look to make the most of every remaining outing. Here’s a look at where things stand as September gives way to October:

Football Brunswick’s football team dropped its second game in a row, 28-12, at Lewiston Friday night and is now 2-2 on the season. The Dragons try to get back to their winning ways Friday night when they host Cony. Mt. Ararat dropped to 0-4 Saturday after a hard-fought 14-8 loss at Oxford Hills. The Eagles try again Saturday when they host Lewiston. In Eastern B, Morse got in the win column for the first time Saturday by virtue of a 27-17 victory at Winslow. The Shipbuilders (1-3) play host to Hampden Academy Friday.

Boys’ soccer Brunswick’s boys’ soccer team remained atop the Eastern Class A Heal Points standings as of Tuesday. The Dragons, who have yet to surrender a goal in 2010, blanked host Morse (10) and visiting Edward Little (2-0) last week to improve to 7-0. Brunswick was home with Oxford Hills Tuesday, hosts Lewiston Saturday and Mt. Ararat Tuesday of next week.

The Eagles fell to 2-3-2 with losses last week at Lewiston (10) and at home to Morse (3-1). Mt. Ararat (11th in Eastern A) was at Cony Tuesday, hosts Edward Little Friday, then goes to Brunswick next Tuesday. Morse is ranked eighth with a 4-3 mark. The Shipbuilders dropped a 1-0 home decision last Tuesday to Brunswick, then bounced back Friday with a 3-1 victory at Mt. Ararat. Magnus Lilleaas, P.C. Ostergaard and Eric Trautman-Mosher scored for Morse. Alden Talbot had a goal for the Eagles. Morse was home with Edward Little Tuesday and welcomes Erskine Saturday.

Colby Gail and Randi London. Morse hosted Edward Little Tuesday, goes to Erskine Friday and welcomes Oxford Hills next Tuesday. Mt. Ararat was sixth in Eastern A with a 5-2 mark after the loss to Morse. The Eagles did blank visiting Lewiston, 6-0, three days prior. Mt. Ararat hosted Cony Tuesday, visits Cony Friday and welcomes Brunswick Tuesday of next week.

On the girls’ side, Brunswick is also leading the Eastern A Heals with a 7-0 mark after recent shutout wins over Morse (3-0) and Edward Little (3-0). The Dragons got goals from Rachel Moroney, Allison Walton and an “own goal” in the win over the Shipbuilders. Brunswick was at Oxford Hills Tuesday, hosts Lewiston Saturday and visits Mt.

Out & About

New seasons get underway By Scott Andrews The Portland Symphony Orchestra and the University of Southern Maine School of Music open their 2010-2011 seasons this weekend with concerts in the Port City and Gorham. USM’s School of Music begins its Spotlight Series Friday and Sunday with pianist Laura Kargul performing a program that features two great Romantic composers. The PSO plays its first program twice, on Sunday and Tuesday. Maestro Robert Moody will take the podium; double bassist Edgar Meyer will be the guest artist. Lyric Music Theater opened its 58th season last weekend in South Portland with a superb community production of “Evita,” a seven-time Tony Award-winning Broadway

musical. Another noteworthy musical event is Ahmad Hassan Muhammad Trio, a modern jazz threesome that plays Oct. 6 at One Longfellow Square in Portland.

Laura Kargul In 2010 music aficionados are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of two great Romantic pianist-composers: Frederic Chopin and Robert Schumann. On Friday, Oct. 1, I’ll be celebrating by attending a Chopin-Schumann concert performed by Laura Kargul, a resident of Freeport and professor of piano at the University of Maine School of Music. Kargul’s recital is the 2010-2011 seasonopener of USM’s Spotlight Series. She represents USM star power, consistently

��� ��� ������ �������� ����� ����� ����� ����� �������� ���� � ������

opening the series and drawing the biggest audiences – which usually include me. This year’s recital is expected to attract so many that two performances are slated, on Friday and Sunday. Kargul is of Polish descent and was deeply involved in the Polish community in her native Detroit. That makes her lifelong connection to Polish-born Chopin especially significant. In addition, she’s also noted as a specialist in the Romantic era, and no composer epitomizes that time frame and artistic framework better than Chopin. Chopin selections include the raging Prelude in D Minor, the sweepingly Romantic Barcarolle and the thrilling Polonaise in A Flat Major. Kargul promises that her selections will lead listeners through the composer’s extraordinary emotional landscape. The second half of the program comprises Schumann’s Fantasie in C Major, which is widely considered to be his greatest work for solo piano. And Kargul points out a bit of back story. It was composed for the purpose of raising money for a monument to Ludwig van Beethoven, and used one of that composer’s romantic themes. It also contained a secret musical message to Schumann’s own romantic interest, who later married him. Catch this celebratory concert at 8 p.m. Oct. 1 and 3 p.m. Oct. 3 at Corthell Hall on the USM Gorham campus. Call the music box office at 780-5555.

The Portland Symphony Orchestra, entering its 86th year – and the third under the baton of music director Robert Moody – opens its 2010-2011 schedule with two performances within three days. The Sunday Classical Series opens Oct. 3 and the flagship Tuesday Classical Series begins Oct. 5. The guest artist will be an unusual treat: a traveling double bassist – rare breed, indeed – who turns his supersized violin into a virtuosic instrument that’s equally at home in the Classical repertoire and the American popular vernacular. Edgar Meyer’s expressive style and unmatched bowing technique, combined with a gift for composition, has collected three Grammy Awards and he was the first double bassist to win the Avery Fisher Prize. Based on the real life story of Eva Peron, charismatic mistress (later wife) of the dictator of Argentina in the middle part of the 20th century, the show has long been a top choice of professional and community groups. Lyric Music Theater, a topnotch community troupe in South Portland, has chosen “Evita” to open its 2010-2011 season. I loved the opening night performance. Kristin Riley radiates star quality in the

title role, a woman of low birth who relentlessly and promiscuously climbed the social and political ladder. She has a fine voice, so needed for her biggest number, plus a commanding stage presence. Professional theater director Ray Dumont brilliantly helms this production, using a down-sized vision that works artistically and is entirely appropriate for a community company. Lyric Music Theater, 176 Sawyer St. in South Portland, presents “Evita” through Oct. 9 with 8 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Call 799-6509.

Ahmad Hassan Muhammad Trio

A couple of weeks ago I attended a concert by an up-and-coming modern jazz trio, and I came away extremely impressed by the musical experience and the young man who leads the group. Ahmad Hassan Muhammad is a pianistcomposer who originally hails from the Cincinnati area and recently graduated from Bowdoin College. Today he lives in Portland and fronts an eponymous jazz trio that has been making waves locally and will soon be hitting the road on a national tour. I find it significant that Muhammad deliberately chose a liberal arts education at Bowdoin, rather than attending a conservatory where the total focus is on developing professional performers. The pianist studied with Naydene Bowder at Bowdoin and commuted to Boston to work with Aaron Goldberg. Muhammad credits the latter with inspiring his creative muse and helping him discover his own distinctive musical voice and style. At the recent concert I attended, about 90 percent of the selections were original compositions. Muhammad is solidly backed by bassist Stu Mahan and drummer Phil McGowan, who trade solo roles with ease and truly work as a team. Their joint efforts are characterized by strong melodic lines and gently pulsating rhythms that mesmerize listeners and carry audiences along for a ride. The Ahmad Hassan Muhammad Trio experience can be likened to a musical bubble bath: at once intimate, scintillating, sensual and soothing. Come get intimate with this wonderful threesome at Oct. 6 at One Longfellow Square in Portland (corner of Congress and State) at 8 p.m. Call 761-1757.

Advice You Can “Bank On” • Cut through the “red tape” with a 30 year banking pro in your corner.

Ask Lou Gagne, R. Ph. Why request compounded medicines? Strength - compounded drugs can be prepared in strengths not usually available. Inactive ingredients - compounded drugs can be made without dyes, sugars, glutens, preservatives and other inactive ingredients found in regular prescription drugs. Delivery Method - compound drugs can be prepared as topical creams, lozenges or flavored syrups (great for kids and animals) instead of hard-to-swallow pills. Call Lou for a phone consultation today.
