Harpswell harvesters skeptical as clam population declines

Leaving an impression at the library


A tree in all its colorful fall splendor welcomes visitors to Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick last weekend.

By Dylan Martin HARPSWELL — David Wilson thought clam harvesting was bad last year. But the clam digger of 20 years and chairman of the town’s Marine Resources Committee this week said 2012 marks a new low. In some of his good years, he said, he could make up to six figures in income. Now he’s thinking about getting a second job. “This year I haven’t harvested a quarter of what I harvested last year, and I thought last year was the worst year I’ve seen digging,” Wilson said. “In the past we’ve had clams everywhere in town, and now we don’t.”

State biologist Denis Knault said recent surveys found that three areas in Harpswell have high percentages of clams with stage four neoplasia, a stressinduced disease that will kill the clams at a young age. Orrs Island was found to have 23 percent of clams with stage four neoplasia, Gurnet Landing with 30 percent and Beals Cove with 18 percent, the state biologist said. But despite these new figures, Knault said this is only one piece of the puzzle in diagnosing the town’s clam decline. Other possible causes include the increase in predators like green See page 29

Where’s Harpswell? Good question, business owners say By Dylan Martin HARPSWELL — One question seemed to resonate the most Wednesday night when business owners and the consultant hired to devise an economic development plan for the town discussed the business climate: “ H ow d o p e o p l e f i n d Harpswell?” It’s a question Susan Horowitz of Ash Cove Pottery said she

and co-owner Gail Kass often ask their customers, because the town can be hard to find if people don’t already know about it. “This is the biggest barrier I see, at least to the summer businesses,” Horowitz said. “It’s a very hard thing to find, and once they have come to Harpswell, they come back.” The town hired Planning Deci-

sions of Portland and Hallowell in September to develop the plan, at a cost of $12,000, which will be paid through monthly invoices. Town Administrator Kristi Eiane said all but $2,000 of the budget is coming from a Community Development Block Grant the town received through Cumberland County from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Frank O’Hara, Planning Decisions president, led Wednesday night’s discussion at the town office and said the plan will take about six months and several meetings, with much research from start to finish. Kass, marketing chairwoman of the Harpswell Business Association, which hosted the meeting, said the HBA has made a tremendous effort to promote

the town in the past year. The accomplishments include the placement of a business information kiosk in the town office’s foyer, an ad placement in July’s Down East Magazine, and the editing and printing of maps and guides, among other efforts. “Harpswell’s done a really big effort at getting itself on

Hearing set on merger of Brunswick, Lewiston hospitals By Dylan Martin BRUNSWICK — Before the Maine Department of Health and Human Services holds a public hearing on the proposed merger of Parkview Adventist Medical Center and Central Maine Healthcare of Lewiston later this month, Mid Coast Hospital will hold its own forum to appeal to the community. “We are facing a time when rising health-care costs are breaking the backs of local, state, and federal budgets. CMHC’s plan will drive up our health-care costs,” Lois Skillings, president and CEO of Mid Coast, said in a prepared statement. “... It is not in the best interest of the people of this region, especially at a point in our history when health-care experts around the country are recommending that there be fewer hospitals.” After CMMC submitted a certificate of need to DHHS for the proposed merger, Mid Coast Hospital sent their own, according to the Bangor Daily News, but DHHS said Mid Coast’s request was “not subject to review.” “DHHS cannot and will not review the submission on a competitive basis with the submission received by the department from Central Maine Healthcare on Aug. 29, 2012,” wrote Larry Carbonneau, manager of DHHS’s Health Care Oversight Program, according to a letter provided to the Bangor Daily News. Steven Trockman, spokesman for Mid Coast, told the Bangor Daily News last week that a new amendment to the Certificate of Need Act that passed the Legislature earlier in the year will require CMMC to demonstrate a public necessity for Parkview’s takeover. He said it will require DHHS to take into account “lower-cost alternatives that meet the community’s health care needs.” DHHS will hold a public hearing for the proposed merger between Parkview and CMMC at 10 a.m. Oct. 24 at the Knights of Columbus building, 2 Columbus Drive. “The purpose of this hearing is to allow

the Applicant, other persons directly affected by the application and the public to have an opportunity to present information, documentary evidence, arguments, and comments questioning the documentation presented or raise issues and/or concerns to be considered by the Department on this proposal,” according to a notice from the DHHS. Before that happens, Mid Coast will hold a community forum to discuss their own proposal to merge with Parkview. That will happen at the Mid Coast Hospital Cafe and Conference Rooms, 123 Medical Center Drive, from 5:30 p.m.-7 on Monday, Oct. 15. “Mid Coast Hospital has a proposal that will help our community preserve local control of its health-care services,” according to a statement from Mid Coast. “We would like to work with Parkview Adventist

Medical Center to strengthen health care in our community.” The president and CEO of Mid Coast will host the meeting and provide a look at what Mid Coast believes could happen to

the community, according to the statement. The hospital will also solicit feedback from those who attend. Dylan Martin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or Follow him on Twitter: @ DylanLJMartin.

Cumberland County District 3 commissioner election a rematch By Amber Cronin PORTLAND — Both candidates for Cumberland County Commissioner in District 3 are running on a platform of transparency, but they disagree on how much control to give to county govern-

ment. And, the pair have met before. Incumbent Stephen Gorden, R-North Yarmouth, and independent Mark Grover of Gray faced each other for the District 3 seat in November 2011 after the county expanded the districts from three to five. Gorden won the election by nearly 1,300 votes, 6,899 to 5,617. District 3 includes Freeport, North Yarmouth, Brunswick, Harpswell, Pownal, Gray and New Gloucester. Gorden, 70, lives with his wife Nancy in North Yarmouth. He is a retired executive with American Water in Voorhees, N.J. He said he is running his campaign based on the need for transparency and efficiency in county government. “There’s a lot of things in government that need to have more public exposure,” Gorden said. “There needs to be a better thought in this state of integrating government levels. Counties and communities should integrate services so they perform for the citizen and cost them less.” Grover, 57, a software designer for DeLorme in Yarmouth, lives in Gray, where he previously served three years on the Town Council. He said he wants to see bylaws created for county government as stipulated in the County Charter that was passed two years ago. “It sounds dull, but bylaws regulate the government and limit its power,” he said. Grover has drafted a proposed set of bylaws for the county and posted them on his website. His proposed rules include banning emergency meetings conducted via e-mail, requiring ethics rules for such things as disclosure of income sources,

and “hundreds of other rules intended to help regulate county government and increase public involvement,” he said.

County government Both candidates said they would like to see county government become more “people friendly.” Grover said he hopes his proposed bylaws would increase public involvement in the county government. He said he believes that the public should be made more aware of meetings happening at the county level through weekly notifications, website enhancement and a county ombudsman. “The third proposal from my rules would be the establishment of a county ombudsman to represent the public when they feel that they have not been well enough served by the county government, basically a customer service representative for the public,” he said. Gorden said that he thinks the county is already moving in a more communitycentered direction, but he thinks there is more to do. Sometimes it is difficult, he said, for him to get around to speak with citizens of the county and that creates misunderstanding in the citizenry. “Right now, for example, you have a representative in the state Legislature who serves somewhere between 7,000 and 9,000 people, a state senator that represents 2,000 and here I am, county commissioner, and I represent 58,000,” Gorden said. “I have a hard time trying to get around to all the communities to get to know the citizenry and make myself available so that I can get input (from them).” He said that things like the regionalization of emergency dispatch better services the county’s communities and saves money. “It is very hard for a community to staff a 24/7/365 dispatch center,” he said. “At a regional cost you can do it better and more efficiently with quicker service. I think that’s one of the best things that we have done.”

Budget Grover said he supported the $41.5 million budget for the 2012-2013 fiscal

year, even though it represented a $468,000 increase over last year’s budget. Gorden said that he finds the budget “a little bit concerning” and that there should Gorden be more citizen education with regard to bonding funds. Grover said that he always attends the budget meetings and that this year department heads and the county manager provided responsible Grover proposals. One major point of the budget that posed a problem for Grover is bonding money for renovations at the Cumberland County Civic Center. Initially, he did not support the measure because he felt that Portland and South Portland should take on more of the cost for the renovation because they would reap greater financial benefit. However, after there was overwhelming voter support for the project, he came around to the idea of borrowing the money. “The only real concern I have is about the Civic Center deficits, which I hope will improve over the years,” he said. “I want to see the Civic Center continue in a fiscally responsible manner.” Gorden also initially opposed the Civic Center bond, but changed his mind when voters supported it. He said that he now supports the project because with the county’s borrowing power, the money was bonded at a much lower interest rate than if the two cities had financed it alone. He said that he feels that citizens need to be made aware of future capital improvement projects that are going to require bonding. “For example, we’re doing an upgrade to the parking garage and that took some bonding and I believe there are other issues like that where we’re going to need to bond money to improve the capital outlook of the county’s facilities and that’s going to cost money,” Grover said.

Fireworks ban in Topsham up to voters on Election Day By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — The town ban on sale and use of consumer fireworks faces a Nov. 6 challenge at the polls. The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Sept. 20 to send the question to next month’s referendum. Selectman David Douglass, who launched a petition in June to overturn the ban, had 468 signatures certified as valid. He needed 459, 10 percent of Topsham residents who voted in the most recent gubernatorial election. Douglass’ petition would allow the sale

and use of fireworks in accordance with state law. Under that law, fireworks were permitted in Topsham from Jan. 1-June 12, when a referendum vote enacted the ban. Two ballot questions on June 12 each presented voters with three choices on fireworks. The first question asked about the sale of consumer fireworks, while the second involved fireworks use. Voters were asked to pick one of the three options presented under each question. Question 1A asked whether the town should “neither regulate nor prohibit the

sale of consumer fireworks and therefore permit the sale of consumer fireworks in accordance with state law?” That question received 436 votes. Question 2A asked the same thing, but in respect to the use of consumer fireworks, and received 419 votes. Question 1B asked voters if they wanted to enact a zoning ordinance regulating fireworks sales, which 227 voters favored. Question 1C asked whether an ordinance prohibiting those sales should be enacted, and 565 – the majority – voted for that option. The second and third parts of Question 2 also involved ordinances to either regulate

fireworks use, or ban it. Two hundred fiftynine voters favored regulation, while 540 preferred prohibition. If the first two parts of each question – which called for some kind of legal sale or use – were added together, their total be greater than the third, which called for a ban on the sale or use, Douglass has argued. Fifty-four percent voted for some kind of sale, while 56 percent supported some manner of use. “In my opinion a majority, because it was split three ways, essentially didn’t get what they were looking for,” Douglass has said.

Harpswell referendum would change hiring of town treasurer By Dylan Martin HARPSWELL — Voters on Election Day will decide whether they want the Board of Selectmen to appoint the town treasurer. Treasurer traditionally has been an elected position, Selectman Jim Henderson said. But he said the state’s low qualification requirements leave the job vulnerable to electing an under-qualified treasurer. The only qualifications are that the treasurer be at least 18 years old, a Maine resident and a U.S. citizen. The two other selectmen agree, according to a written explanation available on the town’s website. “The Selectmen find that those requirements fall far short of the qualifications needed for the Treasurer of the Town of Harpswell in this day and age,” according to the document. If voters give the board power to appoint the treasurer, the selectmen said they will

Harpswell referendum wording “To see if the Town will vote to change the method of selection of the Town Treasurer from being elected for a three-year term to being appointed for a three-year term by the Board of Selectmen effective as of the 2013 annual Town Meeting.” be able to hire someone who is qualified to maintain the town’s budget and other assets in a responsible manner. “When considering someone to be responsible for more than $15 million, including the Town’s budget and borrowings and the Harpswell share of both the County and MSAD 75 budgets, the State requirements are just totally inadequate,” the document

continued. “Having an appointed Treasurer will allow the Town to establish qualifications for the position when it becomes vacant. It will permit the Town to check references and to take all the normal steps that any prudent business operator would take in an effort to assure the employment of someone equal to the task.” Henderson said Treasurer Maguerite Kelly has done an “incredible” job. The Board of Selectmen will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. Oct. 18 to hear feedback from anyone who has questions, comments or concerns about the referendum. The town is also soliciting comments on its website at http://www.harpswell.

Henderson said while he hasn’t heard any opposition to the referendum, he can imagine what the arguments can be. “I think there will be some (opposition) because some people will argue that the town treasurer has been elected for years,” and it serves as an independent check on the town’s finances, the selectman said. But since an annual independent audit is already performed, Henderson said, there is no reason to doubt the money will be in questionable hands. Election Day is Nov. 6.

Portland firm defends Brunswick restaurant in trademark lawsuit




frequented by millions of people each year,” according to the complaint filed in Federal District Court in Portland. The Delaware company also accused the Brunswick restaurant of violating state and federal trademark and unfair competition laws; federal trademark dilution, and violation of Maine’s Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the Federal Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. “Defendants’ use of the names ‘TAO’ and ‘TAO Maine’ for their Asian restaurant is an effort to free-ride on the enormous goodwill established by Plaintiff’s well-known and famous TAO Venues,” according to the court documents. Cecile Stadler, one of Tao Restaurant’s owners, said she doesn’t see that. “It’s really kind of absurd,” Stadler said, adding that the restaurant, which opened in May, does not try to emulate

By Dylan Martin BRUNSWICK — After becoming the target of a lawsuit by a national chain, a local Asian restaurant owner Tuesday said her 5-month-old business will be defended free of charge by a Portland law firm. The 40-seat Tao Restaurant was sued Oct. 2 by TAO Licensing LLC, which claims the 23 Pleasant St. business is illegally using the “Tao” name. The Delaware-based company runs TAO New York, an Asian restaurant, and TAO Las Vegas, a nightclub and Asian bistro that made $55.2 million in its first year of business, according to a 2007 report in The New York Times. “The TAO Venues are among the largest, busiest, and most well-known restaurant and entertainment venues in the United States, with the first restaurant opening in 2000 and the venues now

the feel of the New York or Las Vegas establishments to attract clientele. She also said her restaurant uses the word “Tao” in a different way, noting that the word and “Dao” are represented by 85 different Chinese characters. This means the two words can have multiple meanings, Stadler said, though they have been diluted by the Romanization of the Chinese language. Her restaurant’s use means “peach,” Stadler said, while the Delaware company’s use means “the way.” Stadler said she and her husband and daughter researched the word and found that many U.S. restaurants use it, according to the Bangor Daily News. Howard Shire of New York City law firm Kenyon & Kenyon, which is representing TAO Licensing LLC, told the Bangor Daily News last week that the company “has pursued or is pursuing similar actions against other restaurants that use ‘Tao’ in their names.” A search of public court records on found that the Delaware-based company filed a similar complaint on Sept. 13 against a New York-based Asian restaurant called Tao Syosset. TAO Licensing’s complaint against the Brunswick restaurant claims the larger chain has suffered “substantial and ir-

reparable damage and injury in particular to its valuable goodwill in, and the distinctive quality of, its famous TAO Mark” along with “monetary damage, loss and injury, an an amount to be determined at trial.” As a result, the company is seeking a monetary award plus the Brunswick restaurant’s profits, and court and attorneys’ fees. It is also seeking the destruction of any materials associated with the “Tao” name at the Brunswick restaurant, along with the transfer of its domain name, www. James Goggin, a partner at law firm Verrill Dana, Wednesday said he will represent Tao Restaurant pro bono. He said he expects to submit a response to TAO Licensing’s complaint on Oct. 25. “In general, trademark owners have to protect their trademarks in order to keep them,” Goggin said. “But the ultimate question is whether there’s going to be confusion caused between (the two parties as a result of the infringement).” Stadler said another lawyer and law firm also offered pro bono representation, and she has received encouraging emails and messages via social media. “The show of support has just been tremendous,” she said.

Brunswick Downtown Association hires new executive director By Dylan Martin BRUNSWICK — Following a threemonth search, the Brunswick Downtown Association has hired Debora King as executive director. King started last week. “We found that she had all of the qualifications that we were looking for,” said Dee Perry, BDA chairwoman. It also helped, Perry said, that King was familiar with the area and has been a resident since 2010. King was selected from eight candidates, Perry said, and will replace Stephanie Slocum, who will continue working on some projects for the group. King had been executive director of the Greater Freeport Chamber of Commerce since December 2010. “It was a brand new chamber, so one of the challenges was to get it on its feet.

Important issues for community understanding: • Mid Coast Hospital has a proposal that will help our community preserve

local control of its healthcare services. We would like to work with Parkview Adventist Medical Center to strengthen healthcare in our community. We believe that collaboration and consolidation can begin to reverse the trend of rising healthcare costs.






• Our proposal is in contrast to the plan of Lewiston’s Central Maine Medical Center, which is to take ownership of Parkview.

We seek an open, honest, and transparent discussion with our community about this important issue.

SAD 75 school health coordinator nets national honor By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — The skills of Mary Booth, school health coordinator in School Administrative District 75 for the past 12 years, have been recognized at the national level. The American School Health Association named Booth the 2012 School Health Coordinator of the Year. The organization was to recognize her Wednesday at its national conference in San Antonio, Texas. “MSAD 75 recognizes the critical importance of coordinating health programs for students and staff,” Booth wrote in an e-mail on Wednesday. “This supportive environment ultimately benefits us all because healthy students make better learners and better learners make better community members.” As health coordinator, Booth has striven through policy development and prac-

Booth’s collaborative leadership has led to SAD 75 being Maine’s only school system to earn state excellence awards in all eight school health areas, which include health services and education, and social and physical environments, the release stated. “We are very proud of Mary as we are of all the school health coordinators in Maine,”

SAD 75 Superintendent Brad Smith said in the release. “She has helped us to make tremendous gains in promoting the health of students, which is key to their educational success.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@ Follow him on Twitter: @learics.

Topsham website to host donation link

TOPSHAM — A link on the town website will allow online donations to those in need of heating or other assistance. People can use their credit card to donate to either the Topsham Heating Assistance Program, or a separate fund which Linda Dumont, the town’s general assistance coordinator, can use to help people with items other than fuel. Donations to the cause have been as much as $5,000, given anonymously last year, Town Manager Cornell Knight said on Tuesday. A fundraising dinner, to benefit the heating fund, will be held at the town’s Grange hall on Pleasant Street from 4:30-7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27. Admission is $7 for adults and $3.50 for children. Knight said the link would be posted this week, likely to the General Assistance section of, after the Board of Selectmen approved the action last week. Contact Dumont at 725-1725 or ldumont@ for more information.

College is more memorable the 2nd time around You know the saying, “time flies”? Well, the more mature I get (and I’m talking mature as measured by years on this planet, not as measured by my behavior), the more I do indeed believe that it’s going by not just at a quick No Sugar trot, but at the equivalent of Mach 5. This past weekend, I woke up in my daughter’s college apartment. And as I headed downstairs to the standard-issue college apartment bathroom, I thought, “Wait! I’m supposed to be the one accompanying my mom downstairs so she doesn’t frighten my roommates. I’m not supposed to be the mom! How did this happen?” Sandi Amorello College is a wonderful, magical time. However, when we’re fortunate enough to be in the thick of it, we are (unfortunately) not always aware of this fact. When I was the one living with four female roommates, pulling all-nighters, subsisting on popcorn, Farina, rice cakes with peanut butter (and the occasional box of frozen spinach), I did not fully appreciate the experience. Nor did I appreciate that I was, in terms of growth and development, a creature with superhuman abilities. For instance, I didn’t appreciate that I could sleep for


four hours for five consecutive nights and still have the energy to lift a fork to my mouth. Or speak in a coherent manner. These days, even when I pull only a half-an-all-nighter, I am not a happily functioning person the next day. And if I attempt it two nights in a row, I’m not someone you’d want to join for coffee. I recently reconnected with an old college friend. As soon as I saw his photo again and read some of his witty words, I was transported back to the 1980s. Bam. Poof! Just like in “Back to the Future.” Power up the flux capacitor. How can that be? How can we have such splendid and vivid recall? How can it really seem like “just yesterday?” Apparently, one of the blessings of the “maturing” process is that we can remember what our college bedspread looked like, but often not what we ate for lunch three days ago. Personally, I don’t think any amount of cold-pressedNorwegian-fish-oil will change this situation to any great degree. And really, that’s OK with me. There is a reason our memories develop some holes, like Swiss cheese. There is a reason we don’t remember the names of our date’s kids. Our brains are filled to capacity. We’ve seen enough. We don’t want any more information. Please. Stop! (I once heard a comedian say this exact thing and thought it was hysterical, which is why I’m stealing it.) But back to my college musings. There is something gratifying and very sweet about being a mother and visiting a daughter at college. Swooping in to rescue your young bird from her college nest, if

only for a few hours and dinner at a restaurant. A good restaurant. One with menus. And without pizza, chicken fingers, or hamburgers. And I never would have imagined how much fun it would be to go to a grocery store. Going grocery shopping with a college student is like seeing the world through a new pair of contact lenses. So much excitement. Who knew that a box of frozen waffles or a bottle of real maple syrup or a package of cherry tomatoes could bring so much happiness to a human being? When you’ve been doing it for decades on end, things like food shopping can become dull, to say the least. When you’re in college, however, a trip to Stop & Shop with mom (and her credit card) is akin to winning an allexpense paid vacation to Paris or Hawaii. I can’t believe how much fun it is to be the fairy Godmother instead of Cinderella. Who knew one of the greatest joys of parenthood would involve making sure your college student has a plentiful supply of Annie’s Mac & Cheese? And toilet paper? My little chicken has flown the coop. For the second year. And it keeps getting better. I just hope I remember all of it.

Doubt about Brunswick GOP leadership How is it that the chairman of the Brunswick Republican Committee is publicly supporting the Fred Horch, Green Independent candidate, over his own party's candidate, Republican Grant Connors? While all if us have the right to support and vote for whomever we choose, how appropriate is it for an officer of the local party organization to retain his position while actively working against his own party's objectives? As a Republican I am personally embarrassed by the fact my own party cannot even unite behind a local candidate. If we are not able to do that, how can we hope to unite the state or nation behind our goals and policies? If Mr. Crimmins is unable to support his own party's candidate maybe it is time for him to pursue other interests. Jeff Morse Brunswick

Elect Horch to Brunswick House seat Please join me in supporting Fred Horch of the Green Independent Party to represent Brunswick’s District 66 in the Maine House. The Green Party is not simply focused on environmental issues; among their core principles are social


and economic justice, decentralization, and communitybased economics. They recognize that social, economic, and environmental needs are equally important for a healthy society. We can’t, for example, sustain a strong economy based on destroying the environment. We can’t have good health care while releasing toxic chemicals into our backyards. Fred Horch is an independent thinker, not beholden to the mainstream political parties. His vision includes plans for bringing good jobs to the region, transitioning to energy independence, and supporting small businesses, working families, and education. These actions will position our community to thrive into the future. Fred is a person of great integrity who will bring careful thought and leadership to all issues. Sarah Wolpow Brunswick

else in this race. Mattie is steadfast and hard-working, and she’s a natural leader who can pull together people of all stripes to accomplish great things. She is a fresh face with no political baggage, and I’m proud to call her a friend. Let’s make Mattie Daughtry the champion of our schools by sending her to Augusta on Nov. 6. Dan Ankeles Brunswick

Daughtry in House District 66 Brunswick’s schools provide an excellent education, but lately our town has been forced to lay off excellent teachers and raise property taxes at the same time. It’s not sustainable, and one of the reasons we’re in this position is that we don’t have a champion in Augusta fighting to give Brunswick schools adequate funding. That’s why I’m thankful Mattie Daughtry is running for the Maine House in District 66. Mattie is a daughter of Brunswick who has gone through the school system and understands education policy better than anyone


Elect Horch in House District 66

We have an opportunity to strengthen our legislative leadership team by electing Fred Horch to the Maine House of Representatives in District 66. Fred has a legal background, strong work ethic and the ability to reach across partisan divides. He will be an effective voice because he will listen and will propose intelligent, practical ideas and solutions. As a husband, father of three children, and businessman, Fred is a man of great integrity. He will focus his energies on matters brought before the Legislature that pertain to the vitality of our community rather than pursuing a political career for its own sake. Brunswick will be well served with Fred Horch in the House of Representatives. Please give Fred Horch your support, and vote to elect him as our representative in the 125th Maine Legislature. He will keep us informed. Vicky and Betsy Marr Brunswick OPEN this Sat. and Sun. 11am-6pm

House needs Horch’s independence When I moved here 13 years ago, an independent was in the governor's office and Maine was represented in Washington, D.C., by two Republican senators and two Democratic congressmen. Clearly, Mainers vote on the basis of character and qualifications, not party affiliation. Those of us in Brunswick House District 66 have an opportunity to practice this with a vote for Fred Horch. Fred will bring the experience of a small-business owner, parent and committed member of our community to Augusta. Fred's independence will enhance his effectiveness in the Legislature. House bills will earn his vote on their merits, not their party of origin. He will be free to represent Brunswick fully. Fred Horch possesses the values, experience and perspective we need in our elected leaders. I hope you will join me in supporting his bid for the District 66 seat. Barry Logan Brunswick

Daughtry’s experience is right for Brunswick Serving on the Brunswick Town Council, I experienced the value of effective advocacy for our town in the Legislature. In my conservation work in Augusta, I

October 12, 2012

witnessed the importance of persuasive representation to protect Maine’s natural resources. While a Green vote may appeal to some, a legislator without a party in Augusta simply means a net loss in Brunswick’s influence. Moreover, the Green candidate has less-known perspectives – i.e., advocacy for an exemption to the minimum wage for small businesses – which I believe are out of step with many Brunswick voters. Fortunately, Brunswick has a home-grown candidate who has done more than talk the talk when it comes to conservation, education, and public service. Mattie Daughtry researched and reported on every piece of legislation proposed by the conservative majority. She’s done the homework to be an effective advocate for our town. Idealism is great in theory. In practice, we need Mattie Daughtry. Jacqueline Sartoris Brunswick

Green Horch is needed in Augusta I attended Brunswick’s District 66 forums featuring Mattie Daughtry, Democrat, Grant Connors, Republican, and Fred Horch, Green Independent. Daughtry and Connors touted green policies almost as much as Fred Horch. Both were greener than their parties, whereas Fred Horch was in tune with his party. Who can be

effective for green policies in Augusta? Connors? Extremely doubtful. Daughtry? Letters last week argue that Daughtry will be more effective than Horch. But consider that Daughtry will be part of the Democratic caucus. It’s run from the top and you are expected to fit in. Expect her Green-ness to be toned way down. Green-based bipartisan consensus building by her will be throttled. Horch has no such fetters. He and his party are fully in accord with green values. He is well regarded for his experienced skills in reaching Green-based bipartisan solutions. He is precisely what Augusta needs. John Rensenbrink Topsham

King a Democrat in independent clothing

The Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate, Cynthia Dill, is in an uphill battle with Angus King. Basically, Mr. King portrays himself as an independent, when he has always acted like a Democrat. In fact, a majority of Democrats will most likely vote for King, since he has toted the liberal agenda for decades. Our political system might just as well have the Conservative Party, and the Liberal/Socialist Party. There is nothing "independent" about Angus King. He is just another political chameleon, who is trying to garnish liberal support from both Democratic and independent voters. Bruce Green Brunswick

Every once in awhile it occurs to me that I might like to do something entirely different with my life. I have wanted to be a writer since I was 13, but I had hoped to become a better writer than I am 50 years later. I somehow imagined I would be a major novelist by now, not just a local journalist. Don’t get me wrong. I am grateful that I get to make a living as a writer. I still enjoy staining the white radiance of a blank screen with my deathless prose, but sometimes I think I might like a do-over. Don’t you? There are no doubt The Universal more courageous folks than I who have, in fact, changed course entirely at 63, perhaps even later in life, but I somehow think it’s too late for me to become a physician. Even if I had the will, I don’t have the energy or the science prerequisites. Realistically, I could imagine studying for the ministry, turning Edgar Allen Beem a column a week into a sermon a week and my expressed concerned for the suffering of others into overt action, but I’m afraid I just don’t have a calling. I might also reasonably consider teaching, museum work, or public relations, but I’d need credentials, accreditations and competencies I now lack and am too lazy to acquire. And when I think about going into communications work I realize that, not only would I last about a day and half in the corporate world, I have no interest whatsoever in new technology and social media. Tweet all you want; I’m just hoping I don’t outlive print media. Fantastically, I can imagine becoming a shepherd in the Outer Hebrides, a Buddhist monk in the South of France, a wandering mendicant in the Himalayas or a beach bum in the Florida Keys, but I’m much more apt to wind up as a bag boy at Shaw’s. I’m way too practical (and married) to ever make a serious break from my established

Amused, confused by Beem’s view of wealth I'm both amused and confused by Edgar Allen Beem's recent column, "The rich vs. the rest of us." First, Mr. Beem seems to hold Mitt Romney to a "rich standard" that somehow seems to overlook Bill Clinton, net worth $80 million; Al Gore, net worth $100 million; John Kerry, net worth $193 million, and the list goes on and on – countless members of Congress and the husband of our congresswoman, all multi-millionaires. If Mr. Beem's contempt is across the board than I applaud him for being honest. If his contempt rains only on conservative rich folks, than that's very sad. My amusement comes about by knowing the rich folks Mr. Beem seems to despise have given me and hundreds of tradesmen work for many years. I've been in business for a long time and I have shown up on job sites with Obama/Biden/Kerry/Edwards/Bush/ Cheney/McCain/Palin lawn signs and bumper stickers, and every one of them, no matter what political stripe they were, paid well and were very gracious to work for. So I just don't see this them against us mindset. So yes, Mr. Beem. they create jobs, and no they all didn't inherit their wealth, and yes most of them are pretty generous. Paul Marseglia Dresden

routine. I’m so domesticated that I feel out of place anywhere I don’t recognize the brand of milk. When I get in the if-I-knew-then-what-I-knownow frame of mind, I start wishing I had stayed in school and earned a doctorate in philosophy, as I had once intended. By now I might be the Edward Pols Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Bowdoin, dispensing wit and wisdom as a venerable metaphysician. If I had it all to do over my kids tire of hearing, I would have pursued a life in academe. Hard to beat, ladies. Culture, sports, libraries, summers off. But so far I haven’t managed to persuade any of my daughters to go the academic route. What started me thinking about doing something entirely different was watching Mitt Romney destroy Barack Obama in the first presidential debate and then going to bed reading Bernd Heinrich’s wonderful new book "Life Everlasting: The Animal Way of Death." I met Heinrich years ago, visiting him at his little cabin in the western Maine mountains. At the time he was teaching at the University of Vermont and studying ravens. I still admire him and his writings enormously. I don’t have enough of a mathematical mind to have ever considered the hard sciences, but I think I might have been able to make it in the natural sciences if I had started back when my mind was still supple enough to embrace empirical data. I would very much like to have become a Bernd Heinrich or an Edmund O. Wilson, a scientist able to write and to extrapolate larger meanings from the lives of winged beings. Yes, that’s it. What I’d really like to do is become is a leading authority on the order odonata, tracking elegant dragonflies and damselflies in the wild, studying their brief, brilliant, beautiful lives while our national leaders are busy stomping America into the ground. But, alas, there is no time for a degree in entomology. I’m thinking maybe I’ll just get a dragonfly tattoo instead. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Elford Austin Stover, Jr., 77: Legendary Maine athlete BATH — Elford Austin Stover, Jr., 77, of Bath, died Oct. 5. Stover was born in Bath on July 30, 1935. He was a 12th-generation native of Maine, the son of Elford Austin Stover and Lillian Josephine Lee Stover, both of Bath. Stover grew up in Bath and quickly distinguished himself as an athlete whose favorite sports were football, basketball Stover and baseball. He began his long sports career in local programs, where his biggest fans were his parents and sister. At Morse High School, his childhood friends joined him on championship teams in baseball and football and tournamentbound basketball teams. He graduated from Morse in 1953 and completed a postgraduate year at Exeter Academy, where he was named the 1954 Athlete of the Year. Stover attended Bowdoin College, where he again excelled in his three favorite sports. He was a standout football quarterback and safety for the Polar Bears, acquiring spots on the Sunday Telegram’s All-Maine Team. Stover was the first basketball player in Bowdoin history to break the career 1,000-point mark, and he starred at multiple positions on the Polar Bear diamond each baseball season. During his summers off from college, he played semipro baseball in Nova Scotia and Maine, including a stint with the Augusta Millionaires. In addition to being named to all-state rosters in all three sports, he received the Bangor Daily News’ Maine College Athlete of the Year Award in 1957. Stover married his high school sweetheart, Marilyn Florence Brown, on Dec. 27, 1958. He served in the U.S. Army for a brief period and then went to work for Mutual of New York. For several years he lived in New York, New Jersey and Chicago. He and his family moved back to Bath in the mid-1960s, and Stover went to work in in-

dustrial sales for Bath Iron Works, where he stayed for over 30 years. Upon retirement, he began a second career as a manufacturing consultant, developing and promoting small businesses in Maine. In Bath, Stover was an active community member, serving on the town council, from 1964-1968 and as acting chairman for part of that time. He also served on the school board, and for two decades coached youth sports in Bath. In the 1970s, Stover became a basketball referee for high schools and colleges throughout the state. He chaired the Maine Basketball Officials Association, and mentored many referees who are grateful for his instruction and influence to this day. Stover was a recipient of the Ollie Berg Award, and was induced into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame in 1998, the Bowdoin Athletic Hall of Honor in 2005, and the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame in 2012. Stover was enormously proud of the Mainsail Award that he received in 2010 from the Morse High School Student Community Liaison Committee. The award honored his work with fellow members of the MHS class of 1953 to develop the Blue and White Classic Golf Tournament, an annual event that has raised over $320,000 for the school's scholarship fund. In 2011, Stover was named chairman emeritus of the tournament. Stover is survived by his wife of 54 years, Marilyn Stover; his children Lee Stover, of Portland, Susan Garrett and husband, John, of Yarmouth, Tim Stover and wife, Kathleen, of Washington, D.C., Michael Stover, of Woolwich and Marianne Stover, of Biddeford; his grandchildren, Nathan and Meghan Stover, of Bath, and Jack, William and Andrew Garrett, of Yarmouth; and an extended family of in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews. A memorial service, with a reception to immediately follow, will be held at Bowdoin College's Kresge Auditorium on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Morse High

School Scholarship Fund, in care of Morse High School, Bath. To share your thoughts and condolences with the family, please visit: For more information on Stover’s athletic career, see: athletics.bowdoin. edu/information/history/hall/stover.

BRUNSWICK — Theodore A. "Ted" Hussey, 82, of Bowdoin Street, died Oct. 5 at The Hospice House of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice in Auburn, after a long battle with leukemia. Hussey was born in Marblehead, Mass., on April 21, 1930, to Hettie Vickery and Finley A. Mooers of Houlton. He was raised by his Hussey adoptive parents, Hazel and Alvin Hussey, of Marblehead. Hussey earned a Boy Scout Eagle Scout Award and graduated from Lynn (Mass.) High School. Upon graduation, he joined the U.S. Navy, where he had a long and distinguished career. He rose through the ranks from corpsman to lieutenant commander. His undergraduate studies were completed at The Citadel, and he earned a master’s degree in hospital administration from George Washington University. After 20 years of service, he left the Navy with an honorable discharge. He then accepted a teaching position at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and served on its planning committee. He was later appointed administrator of Howard County General Hospital in Columbia, Md., an affiliate of Johns Hopkins. Seeking a more leisurely lifestyle, he came to Maine and considered retirement. But his strong work ethic propelled him to accept the position of vice president of the Maine Hospital Association. Always civicminded, he belonged to many community organizations. His active participation in Rotary International earned him a Paul Harris Fellowship. Hussey's hobbies and interests were wide and varied. His greatest love was the sea and sailing his sloop Patience on the Chesapeake and Penobscot bays. He and his wife, Miriam, had many adventures cruising the Maine coast. He was a quiet, soft-spoken, humble man. He loved his country and served it well. He was, above all, an officer and a gentleman. Hussey is survived by his wife, Miriam Charette-Hussey, of Brunswick; four children, Stanley Hussey, of Panama City, Fla., Donna Shelley, of Bath, Barbara Davis, of Pasadena, Md. and Thomas Hussey, of Baltimore; and four step-children, six grandchildren and two step-grandchildren. Hussey had requested a burial at sea. A memorial service will be held at a later date. The family wishes to thank Dr. Trudi Chase and the oncology staff at Parkview Adventist Medical Center, who provided exemplary care. Donations in Hussey's memory may be made to The Hospice House of Auburn in care of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice Foundation, 15 Strawberry Ave., Lewiston, ME 04240. Arrangements are by Stetson’s Funeral Home, 12 Federal St., Brunswick. Memorial condolences may be expressed at

After being honorably discharged from the Navy, Fucini studied at Bryant College in Providence, R.I., and graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration. In 1949, he enlisted in the Air Force and later flew as a crewman on a B-29 Super Fortress during combat in the Korean War, for which he received the Korean War Service Medal. Fucini retired from the Air Force in 1968, and then worked as a deputy sheriff for the Pinellas County (Florida) Sheriff’s Department. He retired from the department with the rank of court bailiff. Fucini was an avid ham radio operator. He also enjoyed watching baseball and basketball, and was a lifelong fan of the Red Sox and Celtics.

Hyde School students volunteer with Good Shepherd Food Mobile

BATH — As part of Hyde School’s community service program, Hyde students are volunteering to help the Good Shepherd Food Mobile bring free food to needy families in the Mid-Coast area. With the support of Grace Episcopal Church and community members, the food mobile offers fresh food and packaged groceries on the last Tuesday of each month, from 2-4 p.m., in the parking lot of the church. In addition to volunteering, the Hyde community has also pledged to raise $1,000 for the food mobile program, allowing it to buy almost $9,000 worth of goods for those in need. To raise the funds, Hyde will hold a long-distance relay run from the Hyde Bath campus to the Hyde Woodstock campus in Connecticut. The event takes place at the beginning of Thanksgiving vacation, and is being spearheaded by faculty members Colin Foye and Peter Rowe.

Brunswick golf team 11th at states as postseason begins The postseason fun is underway and there is plenty more to come in the days and weeks ahead. Golf's team state match was held Saturday and individuals go for glory this coming weekend. Field hockey's regular season has come to a close. Soccer's finish is just days away and cross country's postseason is just days away. Here's a look:

Golf Brunswick took part in the Class A golf state championship Saturday at Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro. The Dragons shot a team score of 354 to place 11th (Gorham was first with 309). Brunswick was paced by Brad Smith, who shot an 82. Derek Devereau (85), John Parker (92) and Ben Lord (95) also scored and Cam Heatly (97) took part, but his score didn't count. Several local players will return to Natanis Saturday for the boys' and girls' individual state matches.

2-0 loss at Medomak last week. The Shipbuilders hosted Camden Hills Wednesday and close at Gardiner Saturday.

Girls' soccer On the girls' side, Brunswick has a slim lead over defending Class A champion Bangor in the Eastern A Heals. The Dragons improved to 11-0 after handling visiting Oxford Hills, 5-1, and Hampden Academy, 4-3, last week. Brunswick was at Mt. Ararat Tuesday, visits Edward Little Friday and closes the regular season at home versus Lewiston Tuesday of next week. Mt. Ararat was fifth at 8-3 after a 2-0 victory at Lewiston and a

3-2 home triumph over Oxford Hills in recent action. The Eagles were home with Brunswick Tuesday, visit Bangor Friday and close at home versus Edward Little Tuesday of next week. In Western B, Morse is second to defending state champion Falmouth after a 1-0 win at Nokomis last week. The Shipbuilders got a goal from Miracle Trimble. After going to Camden Hills Wednesday, Morse hosts Medomak in a makeup game Friday and closes at Gardiner Saturday.

Field hockey Mt. Ararat's field hockey team is playoff bound. The Eagles began the week fifth in Eastern A

with a 9-4 record following recent wins over visiting Lewiston (4-0) and Edward Little (2-1) and at Bangor (3-0). Mt. Ararat closed the regular season at Brunswick Tuesday. The Dragons entered that game with a 2-8-3 record and were ninth in Eastern A, where just eight teams qualify for the postseason. Brunswick was coming off a 3-3 tie at Cony and a 7-0 home loss to perennial champion Skowhegan. In Western B, Morse was 1-12 and 14th in the Heals (11 teams make the playoffs) going into its finale Tuesday at Erskine. The Shipbuilders got in the win

column last Tuesday, with a 1-0 home win over Lincoln, but then lost at Mt. Blue (5-1) and Nokomis (6-1).

Cross country

The cross country regular season ended last weekend with the Mt. Blue Relays. The Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference championship meet is Saturday at Cony High School in Augusta. The regional championship meet is Saturday, Oct. 20, at Belfast. The state championships are Oct. 27, also in Belfast. The New England championship meet is Nov. 10, at Twin Brook Recreation Center in Cumberland.

Boys' soccer Mt. Ararat and Brunswick's boys' soccer team are battling Lewiston for the top spot in the Eastern Class A Heal Points standings. The Eagles began the week second with a record of 9-1-1 after home wins last week over Lewiston (2-1) and Oxford Hills (5-0). Mt. Ararat had a huge test at Brunswick Tuesday, hosts Bangor Friday and closes the regular season at Edward Little Tuesday of next week. The Dragons were third at the start of the week with a 7-2-2 mark after a 4-0 win at Oxford Hills last Tuesday. Brunswick hosted Mt. Ararat Tuesday, welcomes Edward Little Friday and closes at Lewiston Tuesday of next week. In Western B, Morse was 10th (the top 12 teams make the playoffs) with a 4-8 record after a 3-2 home win over Nokomis and a

Cut down on kids’ clothing expenses

• Shop the discount stores. Younger children may not know the difference between designer brands and store brands. It’s possible to get quality items from chain stores for good prices. Even warehouse stores often sell clothing in addition to food and household goods. They may actually carry brand-name items at slashed prices. In addition, consider close-out type establishments that have an inventory of clothing similar to that of more expensive department stores. Because it was bought in bulk or is last-season’s items, the prices are generally lower. • Become a retailer regular. If there is a particular store that the family likes, sign up for that store’s credit card and coupon mailer. A “member” could get discounts that are otherwise unavailable

• Consider consignment shops. Consignment shops sell gently worn items at a deep discount. Such shops prove a good resource for individuals facing tight budgets.

• Don’t forget about layaway. Many stores are bringing back layaway. That means that for a small fee, a person can put clothing aside and make interest-free payments until the purchase is paid off.

Michele’s Consignments


• Swap clothing with friends. Become friendly with parents of similarly aged children and accept hand-me-down clothes when offered. Solicit family members to see if they have items that are in good condition that can be put to use. Many times others will have new clothing – even pieces with tags still attached – because their own children outgrew the items before they could be worn.

• Work in a clothing store. Employees who work in a store often get an employee discount that could be anywhere from 20 to 40 percent off the retail price of items. Parents can certainly work in a store for the discounts, but it’s also an idea for teenagers who want to earn money and save on their favorite brands.

While healthcare, food and schooling may account for a good portion of those expenses, clothing purchases over the years add up, too. Kids grow quite rapidly, meaning that clothing that fit last month may not fit the next. Parents looking to trim clothing costs can consider these suggestions.

to non-members.


Kids can be expensive. Before a child turns 18, parents can expect their tab to be in the neighborhood of six figures, and that’s before college even begins.

Out & About

‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ rides into the Portland sunset By Scott Andrews It’s a busy week on the arts and entertainment front, with a varied menu that spotlights several formats and styles. The most newsworthy event is Glen Campbell’s Goodbye Tour, which visits Portland on Oct. 16. The multi-platinum country singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease last year, and he says that the current tour will be his swan song. Another roots-oriented pop singer is Miss Tess, who will be appearing in Portland Oct. 13 with her three-man band, The Talkbacks. Portland Symphony Orchestra goes into Pops mode this weekend, with Saturday and Sunday performances of a program based on the bohemian lifestyle. The Portland Rossini Club, the city’s oldest musical organization, presents a recital by Portland-born mezzo-soprano Abigail Levis on Sunday. In a total change of pace, Montreal-based Cirque du Soleil’s “Saltimbanco,” plays through Sunday at the Cumberland County Civic Center.

Glen Campbell The “Rhinestone Cowboy” is riding into Portland. That’s the happy news. The sad news is that he’s riding into town for the last time. Glen Campbell, who has sold more than 45 million records in a career that spans five-plus decades, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease last year, but he decided to forge ahead with his final studio album – “Ghost on the Canvas” – and wrap up his public concerts with a Goodbye Tour that visits Portland on Oct. 16. Campbell started in the 1960s as a session musician in recording studios in Los Angeles. Since then he’s had his own television show and appeared in numerous movies. But Campbell is best known as the singer of hit tunes such as “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Wichita Lineman,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Galveston” and “Gentle on My Mind.” In addition to Grammy Awards for individual songs and albums, Campbell received the 2012 Grammy for Lifetime Achievement. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Portland Ovations presents Glen Campbell at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City

Hall at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 16. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Miss Tess “Americana” is a deliberately vague musical description that has become one of today’s most overused labels. But it’s certain that Americana embraces jazz, blues, country, honky-tonk, swing and early rock. And those are the principal influences exemplified by Miss Tess, a singer-songwriter who honed her craft in greater Boston’s thriving alt-country musical milieu. On Oct. 16 Miss Tess will release “Sweet Talk,” a new CD that exudes all these qualities, showcasing her clear soprano voice, her heartfelt writing style and her new three-man band, which she calls The Talkbacks. On Oct. 13 Miss Tess is holding a CD release party at One Longfellow Square, the city’s premier venue for Americana and roots-oriented music. An advance copy of “Sweet Talk” is spinning on my CD player as I write this. I like its infectious swing beat, which infuses most of its 11 songs (10 original and one old country standard). Highlights include “Don’t Tell Mama,” a coyly suggestive love song, “People Come for the Gold,” a rocking dance number, and “Save Me St. Peter,” redolent of beer and lonely barrooms. Catch Miss Tess and The Talkbacks at One Longfellow Square (corner of Congress and State in Portland) at 8 p.m. Oct. 13. Call 761-1757.

Portland Symphony Orchestra The Portland Symphony Orchestra launches its 2012-2013 Pops season this weekend with two performances of a program that was created by maestro Robert Moody, who based it on three artistic depictions of the joys and tragedies of the bohemian lifestyle. Titled “La Vie Boheme,” Moody’s program includes excerpts from Giacomo Puccini’s “La Boheme,” an 1896 Italian opera about a likeable cadre of starving artists in Paris and their love lives. It is the fourth most-often produced opera in the standard repertory. A century later, Jonathan Larson’s Tony Award-winning musical “Rent” recast an almost identical story in terms of contemporary New York. Even more recently, the movie “Moulin Rouge” provided yet

another vision, going back to Paris for the setting and using a score that was compiled from various popular artists. Moody has invited four singers. Soprano Jessica Cates and tenor Christian Reinert represent the classical operatic side of the equation, while Broadway stars Mia Gentile and Mike Eldred will focus on modern renditions of the story. Catch “La Vie Boheme” at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13 and 2:30 p.m. Oct. 14. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Abigail Levis Providing scholarships for promising Maine artists is part of the mission of the Portland Rossini Club, a venerable institution that dates from the middle of the 19th century. So it’s always a treat when a Rossini Club scholarship recipient comes back to perform for the home crowd again. That’s the background for this Sunday’s recital by Abigail Levis, an up-and-coming mezzo-soprano who first studied voice in Kennebunk, moved on to perform with Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society and now studies in New York at the Bard College Conservatory. Among her current teachers is famed singer Dawn Upshaw. In her young professional career, Levis has appeared with the American Symphony Orchestra and won numerous prizes, most recently the 2012 Joy of Singing competition. Her Portland program will range from classical to modern selections; she’ll be accompanied by pianist Jonathan Ware, a Juilliard School graduate. Portland Rossini Club presents Abigail Levis in recital at 3 p.m. Oct. 14 at St. Luke’s Cathedral, 143 State St. in Portland. Call the Rossini Club at 797-8313.

Cirque du Soleil There’s a “first” and a “last” happening at the Cumberland County Civic Center through this weekend. The first refers to Cirque du Soleil, the venerable Montrealbased performing arts organization that’s making its initial appearance in Portland.

AidAn Schultz-Meyer

Portland-born mezzo-soprano Abigail Levis will perform a wide-ranging recital this Sunday under the aegis of the Portland Rossini Club.

The last refers to the fact that the company’s “Saltimbanco” show, which has been performed in 45 countries for two decades, will be retired at the end of the current tour. Classic Cirque du Soleil at its best, “Saltimbanco” is a thrilling and kaleidoscopic celebration of artistry and agility. With a cast of 50 high-caliber artists hailing from 20 different countries, “Saltimbanco” features breathtaking acrobatics and unbelievable athleticism, supported by technical expertise and extravagant design. The show explores the urban experience in all its myriad forms: the people who live there, their idiosyncrasies and likenesses, families and groups, the hustle and bustle of the street and the towering heights of skyscrapers. Cirque du Soleil’s “Saltimbanco” will be performed eight times between Oct. 10-14 at the Cumberland County Civic Center. For a full schedule and ticket information, visit Comment on this story at:

Harpswell business



Harpswell to hold public forum on economic development

from page 1

HARPSWELL — The town will hold its first open forum on economic development at 7 p.m. on Oct. 25 in the town office meeting room. Sarah Curran of Planning Decisions will lead the discussion. Topics will include what kind of economic development the town wants, assets that

the map. We have the Maine state map, which now has an inset with our map in it,” she said. “For years, it was totally obliterated. You couldn’t tell how to get here, or that there was a town.” O’Hara wanted to know how businesses are faring, and solicited comments on problems the town is facing, along with possible solutions to fix them. “I did look at the retail sales data for the community before I came down tonight, and from 2010-2011, retail sales increased about 20 percent in the community,” he said. “And it grew across the board.” Richard Moseley, president of HBA and owner of the Harpswell Inn, said his business “has been very steady” this year. “Usually through the summer, there are ups and downs, but starting in the first of May through right now, it’s really holding up well,” Moseley said. “We’ve had three nights since May 1 with no guests ... I’m ready for a rest.” Horowitz said her business is one of the

have potential for growth and what role should the town play in development. “It will be kind of a broad meeting where anything goes,” Frank O’Hara, Planning Decisions president, said Wednesday. Town Administrator Kristi Eiane

few that stays open with steady hours. “I think that we get more traffic than other businesses,” she said. “We had an incredibly strong May this year and a lower than usual June and September, but a booming July and August, so go figure.” Other business owners provided nuanced responses. A construction firm owner said he’s seen an increase in business, though he’s not sure about other firms in the area. John

Halpin, vice president of the HBA, said his tile design business has mainly seen work out of town and out of state. And a sailboat owner and landlord said both his charter business and his rentals have done well this year. Dan McMahon, a financial adviser with Shepard Financial, said in preparing for new economic development in Harpswell, people need to be prepared for change. “One of the biggest challenges I see, especially on the coast and not just here in Harpswell, is people’s willingness to change – to change with the times, to

change with the laws, to augment their services to be more service-oriented,” McMahon said. And to make sure there is unity between Bailey Island, Orr’s Island and Harpswell Neck, Kass said the town must work on marketing itself as one, instead of as the three separate entities. “We need to have some sort of overarching branding that brings us together,” she said, so they think of us as Harpswell.”

Project Award went to the Bath Freight Shed Alliance. According to the city, Theodore presented a vision of how to preserve Bath’s last remaining 19th century waterfront freight shed, and to provide a downtown hub for community activity and non-profit organizations. Her vision bloomed into the alliance, which includes

arts groups, the Bath Farmers Market, Maine’s First Ship, Regional School Unit 1, the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust and Main Street Bath. Donations have funded revitalization of the building. Kyle Hietala, a member of Morse High School’s Class of 2014, received the Youth Award. He restarted the debate

team and was one of the founding members of The Morse Tribune, the school’s online newspaper. He also developed and has led a mentoring program for elementary and middle school students in RSU 1.

from page 1 crabs and milk ribbon worms. “There are many factors that can cause a decline in that area,” Knault said. “Can we change that? I am confident, yes, we can.” The surveys were coordinated by Wilson, Knault, marine resource officers, harvesters and a West Chester University biology professor, who studies clam populations from New England to Maryland. There were three other areas, the state biologist said, that had no signs of clams with advanced neoplasia. Knault said the presence of the disease itself is not alarming, because it has naturally occurred for years. But the higher rates of clams at the deadly stage of neoplasia indicates that something has changed. Why that’s the case is not known, he said. But he does know the disease happens as a result of stress, and there can be multiple causes of that. Bloodworm harvesting is part to blame, said Wilson, who helped survey Skofield Cove on Oct. 6. “When you have worms in a clam bed, these guys are coming in over and over again,” the chairman of the Marine Resources Committee said. “The third time they do that, it stresses the clam to a point.” Nineteen other harvesters were present that day, Marine Patrol Officer Kyle Neugebauer said, because two days of conservation work is required for them to keep their license. In the past, he said, they used to only pick up trash. This year is different. 5“This is the first year we’re using them to dig,” Neugebauer said. “Why collect trash when we can kind of help

your resource here?” Echoing the remarks of Wilson and other harvesters, the marine patrol officer said clam populations have been in decline for the area. “There are two or three coves that just keep producing, which is nice, but these other ones are dead,” Neugebauer said, adding that the town is still trying to figure out the scope of the problem. Knault said he cannot draw any conclusions about the cause of stage four neoplasia in clams, because not all of the data has been collected, nor has there been enough time to analyze it. But responding to Wilson’s claims about bloodworm harvesting, he said there might be some substance to the argument. “We’re seeing some greater evidence of the intensity of bloodworm harvesting,” Knault said. Since the worms are mobile, harvesters will dig up more mud to catch them, the state biologist said, and that can cause clams to be turned upside down and stressed. After the harvesters finished their survey last weekend, Wilson and others huddled in the woods next to the cove to discuss their frustrations with the decline in the past few years. Gordon Austin, who has been harvesting clams for most of his life, said efforts to reseed clams in other areas and grow the population in the past have failed. “No, it’s never worked. Every time we’ve took seed from one area and put it into another, it never takes,” Austin said. “And I’m talking from the ’80s, when they first started it – in Brunswick, in Harpswell, in all of it. It’s never worked.

It’s never worked to re-seed flats.” Austin and Wilson said they don’t always see eye-to-eye with the biologists, and they doubt that conservation and research efforts will help if a growing clam population depends on colder water temperatures, especially during the winter. “I argue and argue with them, like that was eight years ago when I was seeing them on Harpswell Cove, first hand,” said Wilson, who then imitated one of the biologist’s responses. “‘No, you don’t know what you’re talking about. They spawn when the water reaches a certain temperature.’ Then why am I seeing them when the ice leaves?” Knault said there is some anecdotal evidence to support continued next page

Unsung Hero

Comment on this story at:

from page 1 he would often work alongside other consultants on projects. While maintaining his consulting practice, Fogg provided his expertise to several committees in Topsham: the Conservation Commission, the Comprehensive Plan Committee, the Planning Board, and the Quality of Life Ordinance Committee, among others. Fogg shut down his consulting firm in 2009 and began seeking other outlets for his passion. He’d long been a supporter of the Brunswick & Topsham Land Trust, so he asked Angela Twitchell, executive director of the organization, how he could help the trust. “I told him we could use help overseeing our trail system,” Twitchell said. “We couldn’t afford to hire a trail supervisor, and he has so much experience.” Fogg did, indeed, possess vast experience – he’d helped maintain trails for the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Vermont Division of Forestry.

As trails supervisor for the trust, Fogg now oversees the work associated with clearing and maintaining 17 miles of trails. In addition to reimbursement for materials, the trust provides the volunteers, many of whom are young people from Bowdoin College, the Apogee Summer Adventure Program, or area schools. Fogg takes it from there. “It’s so much fun,” he said recently. “I get to exercise in the woods, while working with volunteers from all backgrounds. I love working with the same kind of hand tools that were used in the 19th century; figuring out problems along the way is part of the fun. And I like knowing that other people will benefit from this work. It’s important to give back.” “Gary’s the man, a dream volunteer,” said Caroline Eliot, associate director of the trust. “He’s so enthusiastic, and he makes everything so much fun. He’s able to engage with young people, and he’s a really good teacher. And he’s incredibly well

organized, providing detailed reports about the work that’s been done on the trails.” Twitchell said she knew the trust was getting a winner in Fogg, because she’d worked with him on the Topsham Conservation Commission. “Gary has a passion for improving the quality of life of the community,” she said. “He’s a collaborator, always respectful of all viewpoints. He’s such a gift.”

Clams from previous page their claim that clams reseed better in colder climates. But he pointed out that the clam population is growing in other areas, including the mid-Atlantic, which generally has a warmer climate. In response to Austin’s response about failed reseeding efforts, Knault said there may be other factors causing the failures that the harvesters haven’t considered. Other towns like West Bath have had “tremendous success with reseeding,” he said.

Knault said he and two other biologists will continue to work on conservation issues like this to figure out the best way to approach the problem. Despite Wilson’s doubts about the situation, he said the Marine Resources Committee is pushing for a conservation closure of Quahog Bay, which will have a public hearing the Board of Selectmen meeting on Oct. 18. The action would close Quahog Bay four days a week, Wilson said, but he’s not sure it will do much good. “That was an attempt from the committee just to try and make people happy,” he said, “because in the past, (people have said) ‘oh, you guys don’t do no management. You don’t want to shut down nothing.’ We shut down Quahog Bay four days out of the week. That’s still not going to solve nothing if you ask me. These clams are going to continue dying, whether we’re digging them or not.”
