Clarke wins Bath House seat By Alex Lear BATH — Democrat Michael Clarke edged out former legislator Robert Winglass, a Republican, on Tuesday to become the next representative from House District 62. In Senate District 19, incumbent Democratic state Sen. Seth Goodall of Richmond defeated Republican David Kaler of Bath. Clarke won the House seat, which covers part of Bath, by a vote of 1,872 to 1,482, according to preliminary results. He said on Wednesday that he is excited about the win, adding that he and Winglass “had a very respectful, nonconfrontational campaign.”

Goodall returns to Senate

Clarke said he will work hard in the term ahead, and that “it’s an honor to have been chosen.” He will fill a vacancy left last spring by former Rep. Thom Watson, D-Bath. Watson, who was prevented by term limits from seeking re-election to the House, left six months before the end of his fourth and final term to work for the Maine Workers’ Compensation Board. Clarke is a captain and paramedic with the Bath Fire Department. A U.S. Navy veteran, he also serves on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Search and Rescue Task Force.

Olsen to join Cornell du Houx, Kent, Gerzofsky in Augusta By Stephanie Grinnell BRUNSWICK — A three-way contest in House District 66 was won Tuesday by incumbent Rep. Alexander Cornell du Houx, D-Brunswick, with Green Independent K. Fred Horch close on his heels. Republican candidate Jonathan Crimmins finished third. The three candidates were separated by about 400 votes. In a House race with a margin of fewer than 70 votes, Republican Kimberly Olsen defeated Democrat David Chipman for the District 64 seat formerly held by Rep. Leila Percy, D-Phippsburg, who vacated the position due to term limit restrictions. There were a handful of other contested legislative races in the area Tuesday, as well as an unopposed race: state Rep. Charles Priest, D-Brunswick, was unchallenged in House District 63.

House District 66 Cornell du Houx received 1,415 votes to Horch’s 1,220 and Crimmins’ 1,019. Cornell du Houx said there was some concern in his campaign that Horch could ride a wave of conservative victories to win the race. He congratulated both his opponents for working hard and running clean campaigns. Moving forward, Cornell du Houx said, he is “committed to working hard for Brunswick and Maine,” particularly regarding the closure of Brunswick Naval Air Station next year and creation of quality jobs in composites and clean energy. The win gives Cornell du Houx a second term. The race marked Crimmins’ second election defeat in the district. “Obviously, I am disappointed with the way it turned out,” he said. “But I’m happy with the way the campaign ran; it was a positive, upbeat campaign.” Horch made his first attempt at elected office and said he has no regrets. “We were delighted with the support we got across parties,” Horch said. “We definitely lost a close one. But we tried our hardest and had fun.”

Democratic incumbent Sen. Stan Gerzofsky, who was challenged by Republican Scott Thomas for the state Senate District 10 seat serving Brunswick, Freeport, Harpswell and Pownal, was re-elected with a margin of more than 3,700 votes. Gerzofsky received 10,125 votes to 6,373 for Thomas, who was making his first bid for elected office. Gerzofsky has served one term in the state Senate and four terms in the state House. Gerzofsky said he consistently heard from voters at the polls Tuesday he is doing a good job representing his district.

campaign as “an interesting walk.” She said she is thankful for all the support she received. “It was an honor to be nominated and an honor to be elected,” she said. Olsen, who was a replacement for original candidate David Mosher, said she said does not have immediate plans and just wants “to get (her) bearings up at the Statehouse.” Chipman said he campaigned hard for the seat and attributed the loss to “a Republican year.” “I tried my best,” he said. “And best of luck to Kim.”

House District 65 District 65, covering parts of Bath, Brunswick, Topsham, West Bath and Woolwich, will be represented by Democratic incumbent Rep. Peter Kent of Woolwich. He was challenged by Republican Robert Thompson of Brunswick. Kent, who defeated Thompson 2,139 to 1,863, earned a second term in the House of Representatives. “I’m excited to be elected again,” he said Wednesday. He offered “hats off” to his opponent and encouraged constituents to contact him with their concerns at pskentz5@ hotmail.com. “That’s really how I can do my best,” Kent said. “I would love for people to drop me a short note if they would like to get on my email newsletter distribution list.”

“The voters in my district have been very supportive. They appreciate the hard work I have done,” he said. “It’s an honor to serve the people of Brunswick, Harpswell, Freeport and Pownal.

Harpswell voters approve PACE loan ordinance By Stephanie Grinnell HARPSWELL — Residents voted Tuesday to establish a Property Assessed Clean Energy ordinance that will give homeowners access to low-interest loans for energy improvements. The vote was 1,725 to 1,115. With approval of PACE, Efficiency Maine will administer a revolving loan

fund to finance improvements in energy efficiency, such as solar panels and efficient heating systems and insulation. The program is fueled by federal stimulus funds. The $20 million revolving loan fund is available at low interest rates to homeowners in PACE communities. Several towns in Maine have already enacted

PACE ordinances, including Yarmouth and Cumberland. PACE loans are repaid like mortgages. According to Efficiency Maine, PACE loans in Maine are different than other states because liens placed on the property can be transferred to a new owner or paid off when the property is sold. Maine’s PACE law dictates that pay-

ments on the loans will not be added to or treated like a property tax and do not have priority over a home mortgage. Interest rates may fall between 5 and 7 percent and the life of the loan is limited to the amount of time the energy improvements remain beneficial.

AG seeks payment from former state employee for unpaid travel debt By John Christie AUGUSTA — The state is tired of waiting for a former official to voluntarily pay the more than $4,300 he owes for bills on a state credit card. The attorney general’s office is taking Jimmy Cook, who Cook got his state job with the help of Gov. John Baldacci, to small claims court. William Laubenstein, chief of the AG’s government division, said, “Obviously, we’d like to recover the outstanding debt in full.” But if the state wins the case and Cook still does not pay the debt, he said the state could go after Cook’s assets. The case was referred to the AG’ s office by state Controller Terry Brann after letters written to Cook failed to get him to pay the debt. “My recollection,” Brann said, “is that this is the first time we have contacted the AG regarding an outstanding travel card liability.” Cook, a Bangor native, left the state Department of Economic and Community Development in the fall of 2008, where he worked part of the time in the tourism division. He spent $4,900 on authorized travel to places such as New York City, Long Beach, Calif., and Washington, D.C. The state reimbursed Cook for that amount and Cook was supposed to use that money to pay off the charges on his state-issued credit card, which he failed to do. He also owed $802 on a cash travel advance from the state.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/72769

The Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting reported the problem in April and Cook a few days later repaid the $802. But there have been no further payments since then, according to Brann. Cook was also the subject of a March story by the center that documented how he landed two well-paying jobs under then-DECD Commissioner John Richardson, despite not meeting the formal qualifications for the job. Richardson said Cook was recommended for a job by the governor’s office, which confirmed to the center that Baldacci supported the hiring. Cook also worked for Baldacci’s first inauguration committee and later got his first state job in the governor’s office that coordinated redevelopment of the Brunswick Naval Air Station. Cook’s primary work experience until then was as a UPS truck driver and political organizer for the Teamsters Union. David Farmer, spokesman for Baldacci, said, “It’s our understanding that the matter has been referred to the Office of the Attorney General for a small claims action and that it is being handled in a way similar to other collection matters.” Cook did not respond to an e-mailed request for comment and he has no listed telephone number. John Christie is the senior reporter for the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, a nonpartisan, non-profit journalism organization based in Hallowell. He can be reached at mainecenter@ gmail.com. The website is pintetreewatchdog.org.

By Stephanie Grinnell WINDHAM — Independent challenger Susan Witonis defeated incumbent Cumberland County Commissioner Malory Shaughnessy, a Democrat, for the District 3 county commissioner seat. Results from Brunswick, Harpswell, N o r t h Ya r m o u t h , P ow n a l , N ew Gloucester, Freeport, Windham, Sebago, Casco, Naples, Harrison, Bridgton, Baldwin, Raymond and Gray show Casco resident Witonis edging out Shaughnessy, of Windham, 19,346 to 17,958. “I was very pleased with the results,” Witonis said Thursday morning. “And congratulations to Malory for a good race. I want to thank everyone who voted for me and I appreciate their support. I’m honored to service the citizens of Cumberland County and look forward to servicing them as a County Commissioner.” Witonis pointed to public safety and equal representation of rural counties as the reason she decided to run for county commissioner this year. She said she plans to ensure rural towns have adequate public safety coverage. “It’s a lot of people to represent, 15 towns,” Witonis said. “It’s hard to get out there and be effective. Within this 15-town area, people in Harpswell do not have the same needs as Harrision or Baldwin.”

The first charter for Cumberland County was also approved Tuesday and will increase the number of commissioners from three to five. Witonis said the increase in representation will decrease the number of people each commissioner represents by tens of thousands. “I support the charter and the increase from three to five (commissioners) will be beneficial,” she said. Witonis said there has not been a decision made about how commissioners will be delgated within District 3 following election of two additional commissioners. The election is expected to take place in 2011, she said. “I don’t even think they know at this point,” Witonis said of dividing responsibilities throughout the county between commissioners. “I’m interested to see how they divide it.” Witonis previously served as a selectman in Casco from 2006 to 2010 and was a member of the county Budget Advisory Committee. Witonis graduated from Windham High School and has lived in Casco for 23 years. Stephanie Grinnell can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or sgrinnell@theforecaster.net

building. The council voted last spring to borrow up to $175,000 to purchase the building. The Old Brunswick Road property has been eyed by some as the possible next home of the Bath Youth Meetinghouse and Skatepark, which currently operates in the former YMCA on Summer Street. The order for the conveyance to BDC notes that there are funding sources available to that corporation that are not available to the city. City Manager Bill Giroux said the BDC has access to about $150,000 in Brownfield grant funds – which must be spent by the end of the year – for use in remediation. Remediation of mold, asbestos and lead in the armory has been estimated to cost about $135,000.

The council also voted unanimously to accept a $415,000 bid from Wyman & Simpson to replace a pier and improve banking at Waterfront Park. The city plans to borrow $450,000 for the project, including $35,000 in contingency funds. That money will be repaid from Bath’s Downtown Tax Increment Financing District.

News briefs Rescuers look for Sagadahoc Bridge jumper BATH — Emergency responders from several agencies were searching Thursday morning for a man who reportedly jumped off the Woolwich end of the Sagadahoc Bridge. Police Chief Mike Field said the operation began shortly after witnesses reported the incident at 5:11 p.m. Wednesday. The Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department was trying to determine the man’s identity while the Maine Marine Patrol headed the water search, Field said. Bath’s Police and Fire departments were also involved in the search, along with Bath Iron Works security, the Maine State Police and the U.S. Coast Guard, according to Field.

Harpswell residents question SAD 75 data on school closing By Stephanie Grinnell HARPSWELL — Fewer than two dozen people attended a special meeting Monday night for public comment on how much School Administrative District 75 says it will cost to keep West Harpswell School open. Even fewer had anything to say. Those who did agreed on several points for the Board of Selectmen to raise to the Department of Education, including the fluctuation of cost estimates and school enrollment numbers. Town Administrator Kristi Eiane said five people were appointed to the school cost closure review team, which was charged with reviewing closure reports and financial impacts. She said initial estimates of more than $200,000 have been reduced to just under $197,000 due to a new interpretation of the principal’s position and averaging health-care costs, among other things. Selectmen had until Friday, Nov. 5, to comment on the cost analysis, Eiane said. She noted there is still some question about teachers’ summer pay due to two answers received on different days, one of which had not been reviewed by the team as a whole at the time of the meeting Monday. Resident Robert McIntyre noted some rooms at Harpswell Islands School are not available for instructional purposes, such as the cafeteria. “If Harpswell Islands School were to (use those rooms as classrooms), SAD 75 would not be providing equitable resources,” he said. McIntyre noted there is a push for SAD 75 to establish a 4-year-old educational program through grant funding and said closing West Harpswell School is “a simple absurdity,” considering the prekindergarten program already established at WHS. He said there are 20 children enrolled in the program and a waiting list. He noted some other inconsistencies with the cost estimates, including what he called a “double charge” for heating oil, the estimate for which he said was based on a district-wide bulk purchase of heating oil on the last fiscal day of the year. He suggested selectmen request a refund of the principal’s salary, too, and said he has a letter from former Education Commissioner Susan Gendron sharing his opinion regarding the refund. McIntyre suggested written instructions from the state, rather than relying on verbal agreements to avoid confusion. “Are you suggesting we are not getting the truth from SAD 75?” Selectman Elinor Multer asked. McIntyre responded, “It is good to have things in writing.”

Leon Ogrodnick said there have been “significant reductions” and wondered how the calculations were being made by the school district. “When this whole thing started out last year, we were at $239,000,” he said. “We’re now down to $195,000 and there’s still outstanding questions.” Other residents argued there is enough room at Harpswell Islands School to house all Harpswell students. “There’s certainly plenty of room with both schools combined and certainly room to grow,” Joanne Rogers said, adding maximum class sizes are about 25 students. Kay Ogrodnick said more than twothirds of the school budget goes to SAD 75. “At Town Meeting, we cuss and discuss in great detail that remaining third,” she said, adding the loss of one school for the reduction of less than $200,000 is “not

much of a bargain.” Ogrodnick noted the money saved will not benefit Harpswell directly, it will benefit SAD 75. She warned reopening the school would not be easy if it is closed. Kara Douglas questioned documentation of “educational theory and practice” noted in the lack-of-need letter from SAD 75 to the town. Hannah Beattie questioned when the public will be allowed to address the School board and how to find out how decisions are made. Selectman James Henderson said all board meetings are open to the public, but noted there have been issues with people realizing there is a meeting happening, a problem he said has improved during the past eight months. Beattie said she has heard teachers

have moved to Mt. Ararat Middle School for fear of losing seniority if WHS is closed. “Change like that hurts our kids,” she said. “It’s hard when it feels like you’re continually losing. It’s not all about the school, it’s about the children’s education.” She suggested the school district “stop looking at just numbers” and consider the children involved. Elizabeth Davis founded a preschool program a few years ago and said one pilot program in one town will not be enough of an example for the entire school district. “We have a lot of talent in town and I’m not convinced we wouldn’t be able to educate students without the help of the district,” Davis said. “There may really be a better way to do this.” Stephanie Grinnell can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 and sgrinnell@theforecaster.net

Hearings slated on $41M Cumberland County budget By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Four public hearings have been scheduled on Cumberland County’s proposed $41 million budget, a nearly $430,000 increase over the current budget. The local assessment of the proposed budget would be more than $22.6 million, since the rest of the budget is funded by state and federal grants and other revenues. Cumberland County Manager Peter Crichton said the proposed budget represents a 1.76-percent tax increase. Taxpayers would see an average increase of one cent on the mil rate, from 52 to 53 cents.

Crichton said the budget includes a 2 percent cost-of-living increase for county employees, since no COLA was given last year and merit pay raises have been suspended for the last two years. The COLA increase, totalling more than $140,000, is intended to keep the county a competitive place to work, Crichton said. Meanwhile, the budget restores $35,000 in funding for the Spring Harbor jail diversion program, which was eliminated when the state consolidated jail operations in 2009. Crichton said the funding was restored by the county’s Budget Advisory Com-

mittee, because it works with inmates who are being released from prison, so they are less likely to return. The budget also eliminates one position at the Registry of Deeds, while adding a position at the Criminal Investigation Division of the Sheriff’s Department to deal with an increase in rural crime, and a management position at the Regional Communications Center. An additional $25,000 in funding has been allocated to Preble Street Soup Kitchen and the Wayside Soup Kitchen to help them deal with the increase in demand for food services. The budget also includes a $1.35 million Capital Improvement Program, which is funded from reserves and doesn’t affect the tax rate, Crichton said. The CIP will fund 27 projects, including $225,000 for ongoing maintenance at the courthouse parking garage in Portland and $70,500 for hazardous materials teams. Another $32,000 has been budgeted this year and next, Crichton said, to install a unified database in the district attorney’s office that will allow law enforcement agencies to share criminal data. More than $213,000 has been allotted for maintenance of the Cumberland County Civic Center. Another $200,000

As a teenager in Richmond, he and his brother co-founded Goodall Landscaping, which is now based in Topsham.

has been budgeted to produce drawings and design work for proposed renovations to the center. Last month, a special task force approved the concept of adding premium seating, upgrading concession stands, adding more loading docks and restrooms and enhanced backstage facilities to the Civic Center. The cost of renovating the 6,700-seat venue, estimated between $27 million and $29 million, must be approved by voters, who could see the question on the November 2011 ballot. The first public hearing on the budget will take place in Portland on Monday, Nov. 8, at 6:30 p.m. at the Cumberland County Courthouse, 250 Newbury St. Another hearing will take place the following evening at 6 p.m. at Scarborough Town Hall, 259 U.S. Route 1. Additional hearings will take place on Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. at Freeport Town Hall, 30 Main St., and Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. at the broadcast studio at the Jordan Small Middle School in Raymond. Crichton said the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners will convene for a budget meeting after the public hearings, before taking a final vote sometime in December. If approved, the budget would take effect on Jan. 1, 2011. Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or rbillings@theforecaster.net.

He said last month that he sought a second term to continue to help build Maine’s economy and make the state a better place to live and work. He expressed a desire to provide better educational opportunities for young Mainers, and encourage them to stay in the state after completing high school and college. Goodall also said the most critical issue today is building of a stronger economy and creating jobs in Maine. Alex Lear can be reached at 373-9060 ext. 113 or alear@theforecaster.net.

Recovery begins with … One of the benefits of growing up in Manhattan was the chance to watch the construction of a skyscraper. Walking around town you would come across a block that had been walled off with plywood. A boy Short could spend hours staring through the windows that the construction crews cut in those walls, watching the men and machinery, and wondering what they were doing.

Relief

I am reminded of those days by the construction site across the street from my office. One of our conference rooms overlooks the corner of Franklin and Middle, where the old Halsey Frank Jordan’s Meats factory used to stand. The place sat idle for a long time while rumors circulated about what might happen with the property. Finally, work began on what is to be a hotel, restaurant and condominiums. Cranes swung wrecking balls to knock out the brick walls, exposing the steel frame. Excavators equipped with demolition shears, giant pincers and crushers, dismantled the metal framework and piled it up for placement in dump trucks, to be

hauled away. Little Bobcats scurried to and fro, moving the debris. Power shovels, bulldozers and bucket loaders moved big piles around the lot. There was a huge machine that crushed and sorted the rubble into piles of differentsized materials; some were hauled away, others were re-used on site. I remember the day the place caught fire. Thick billows of black, greasy smoke poured from the building. The Fire Department came and went, the fire re-ignited, and the Fire Department came back. Thereafter, workers sprayed water on the ruins until they were totally dismantled. Once the lot was cleared and leveled, they started drilling holes in the ground and injecting a mixture of grout and gravel into them. On my way into work one day, I stopped and asked a guy in a hard hat why. He explained that the columns of grout were intended to stabilize the ground for building. Meanwhile, they dug up the intersection to connect the new building’s utilities to the city’s water, sewer and electric lines. Construction began with digging a trench, building forms and pouring concrete to outline the perimeter. Then they dug holes and trenches inside the perimeter, laid water and drain pipes and holding tanks in them, and covered them back up. They also dug a rectangular hole, lined it with reinforcing steel, and sprayed gunite

http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/72660

to form what I eventually realized would be a swimming pool.

As this was happening, steel beams, skeleton I-beam joists, reinforcing grids and corrugated steel sheets were being stacked along one side of the lot. A large red lift crane was assembled. Ironworkers appeared and threw up a steel superstructure of uprights and crossbeams, with a staircase and an elevator shaft.

They laid the corrugated steel sheets across the beams, laid reinforcing grid on top of that, and then pumped concrete into the pans that they had created to make floors that finishers smoothed with large motorized power trowels that look like big electric fans. Now they have started framing the walls, windows and doors, and insulating things with greenboard.

As I watch, I envy these construction workers. It seems like such satisfying work to make something so tangible and useful. And it gives me hope. In the midst of war and financial crisis and political acrimony, it is good to see that we can be constructive. We just need to set our sights on a few worthy goals, make some plans, and build them.

Zero degrees of separation Most of us are familiar with the concept known as “six degrees of separation.” It’s the idea that all humans are within six steps of No Sugar connectivity. That whole friend-of-a-friend-of-afriend thing. If you live in the great (sparsely populated) state of Maine, you know that it is not six degrees that separates the humans living here, but something more along the lines of one degree. Lately, I suspect there are actually zero degrees that separate any of us residing here. Especially those of us who are in the Sandi Amorello dating pool. Having grown up in the metropolitan New York/tri-state area, attended college in downtown Philadelphia and spent most of my twenties

and thirties in and around Boston, I am not used to living under the microscope that is the great state of Maine. Particularly, Portland and its surrounds. Living, working, socializing and dating here is not unlike navigating your way through the web of a spider. A web that seems to stretch from Canada to the New Hampshire State Liquor Store on Interstate 95. And from the Atlantic Ocean to the outlets in North Conway. It’s treacherous territory, to say the least. In most places I’ve lived, you have a falling out with a business acquaintance, and there is a good chance that you will never see that person again. A deal goes bad, a freelancer does disappointing work, and you can say, “Ciao.” Bye-bye. Have a nice life. Here in Portland, you have a falling out with a business acquaintance, and two weeks later, you find out that they are having lunch with the guy who mows your lawn. A freelancer falls short of your expectations and leaves a bad taste in your mouth? You can be sure that person will be sitting next to you when you are invited to the party for your accountant’s daughter’s high school graduation.

Your neighbor is annoying and you’ve shared your complaints with a friend? That same neighbor is undoubtedly dating that friend’s sister’s auto mechanic, and now they are lying in bed, concocting a plan to bring you down. If you are dating here, the lack of a healthy level of separation becomes even more disturbing. It’s incestuous. For example, I made a new friend last spring. On our second get-together, she read some of my short stories and, within minutes, realized the central character of one particular story was the same man with whom she was currently “hanging out.” Neither of us had slept with the guy, but we had probably both kissed him. And he was no great kisser. It was enough to make us shriek a collective “Eeeeewwwwww!” Now when I make new “Maine” women friends who are single, I suggest up front that we avoid discussing continued next page

No Sugar Added

from previous page our dating lives. Because, really, who wants to find out that the man who was fabulous and romantic on that date three days ago is the same guy your friend dumped three months ago, because she thought he was terrible in bed? This is just too much information. I mean, it’s disturbing to know that there is a 78 percent chance that the man you are on a date with has probably slept with the ex-wife of at least one of your old boyfriends. Because, let’s face it, there aren’t that many cute fish in the dating pool. I’ve had a friend fix me up with her ex-husband. Let me just say this to that: No. I’ve kissed a man, and later realized he had once dated the woman I had a business meeting with only days before. Again, let me say this clearly: No, no, no. A native Mainer once told me that he knows people who have moved to the Portland area, only to leave again because they just couldn’t deal with the brutal intimacy. Intimacy being a nice descriptor. At first I laughed, but not so much anymore. I love it here, but really, must my gynecologist be having an affair with the sister of the guy I buy my bagels from? A few more degrees of separation would do us all some good. Except for the local therapists, who would undoubtedly lose a good number of clients.

Let’s hear it for the loud-mouthed jerk Welcome to the annual meeting of the LoudMouthed Jerks Organization. I am Ed Beem, president for life of the Southern Maine Chapter of LoMoJo. At the request of a prospective member, I have been asked to review the qualifications for and benefits of membership. As you know, LMJs have become frequent contributors in recent years to press conferences, political rallies, town meetings, and State of the Union addresses, but we are here today to discuss The Universal the time-honored role of LMJs in our primary arena – the sporting event. If you possess some or all of the following attributes, you may qualify for our elite club of individuals to whom fall the awesome responsibility of controlling a game with the sheer power of their voices. Edgar Allen Beem First, do you possess a bellow, a voice that can be heard above bands, cheerleaders, referees’ whistles and the general cacophony of lesser fans? Do you possess strategic timing? The best time to heckle or complain, of course, is the lull after general complaints have been voiced. When you hear the good sportsmanship announcement before every game, do you think the request to refrain from derogatory remarks towards players, fans and officials does not apply to you? Are you able to see an infraction take place better than the officials on the court or field no matter where you are sitting or standing? Do you often find that the officials are favoring the other team? Though this is rarely actually the case (except in York, where it is pretty much the rule), “Call it both ways, ref!” should be a staple of your verbal arsenal. Are you able to make the fine distinction between good, hard aggressive play (your child and his/her teammates) and dirty players (their opponents)? As a rule of thumb, an offensive foul occurs whenever an opposing player runs into your kid. A defensive foul occurs whenever your kid runs into an oppos-

ing player. Do you think your child’s team depends on you to make sure the game is fair? Do you believe that shouting contests in the stands or on the sidelines are almost as important to the outcome of a game as the game itself? Even knowing that referees will never change the calls you protest, do you reason that berating them will help your team get the next call or a makeup call? Do you believe with all your partisan soul that the folks hooting and hollering for the other side are just making fools of themselves, but that you are expressing righteous indignation? If so, consider the benefits of LoMoJo membership. The most obvious and immediate perk is that you should always have plenty of empty seats around you. Your son or daughter will, as you establish yourself as force to be reckoned with, learn a valuable life lesson in mortification. You will rarely, if ever, have to watch a game with your spouse (if you still have one). Sports fans throughout the league will know you well and see you coming. If your plaints are especially vociferous and persistent, you may earn the public recognition you so richly deserve when a referee actually stops a game to deal with you. (I have received this recognition on more than one occasion, but I am a pro.) And if you prove yourself to be a Jerk Among Jerks, the highest distinction a LMJ can earn, you may succeed in being thrown out of a game, thus demonstrating your utter selflessness through your willingness to sacrifice your dignity for the sake of the team. Personally, I have only earned this distinction once (in defense of a soccer goalie who was repeatedly run into by opposing forwards without a single foul being called), but I am aware of legendary LMJs who have been banned for entire seasons. If you recognize yourself in any of the above, you may already be a Loud-Mouthed Jerk without realizing it. Welcome to the club. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Brunswick football upset win highlights playoff weekend A dramatic weekend of football, soccer and cross country action is in the books and local teams made plenty of noise. Here’s a glimpse:

Football A year ago, as the No. 3 seed, the Brunswick football team went to powerhouse Lawrence and sprung an upset in the Eastern A semifinals. Friday night, the Dragons did it again in much more surprising fashion. After closing with three successive victories, Brunswick wound up 5-3 and earned the eighth and final playoff seed, earning a date at topranked, unbeaten Lawrence Friday night. The Dragons dug an early 13-0 hole, but rallied to take a 14-13 lead when Keith Kitchens hit Donald Benbow on a halfback option TD pass. Brunswick’s defense held from there and the Dragons advanced to face No. 4 Lewiston (7-2) in Friday night’s semifinals. Back on Sept. 24, Brunswick lost, 28-12, at the Blue Devils. In Eastern B, Morse wasn’t as fortunate. The Shipbuilders, who garnered the eighth and final spot after a 2-6 campaign, had to go to top-ranked, undefeated defending state champion Leavitt for the quarterfinals and were buried, 52-8. Morse’s lone score came from halfback D’Vaughn Myers on a 9-yard run in the fourth quarter. The Shipbuilders’ season ended at 2-7.

Boys’ soccer The Brunswick boys’ soccer team made it to Wednesday’s regional final against Bangor. The Dragons, the defending regional champions, went 11-3 this fall, good for the No. 3 seed in Eastern A. They advanced by virtue of a 6-0 home romp over No. 6 Mt. Blue in the quarterfinals and a 1-0 home victory over No. 7 Messalonskee in the semis. Brunswick didn’t face the top-ranked Rams of Bangor this fall. They last met in last year’s regional final (a 2-1, double OT victory for the Dragons). If Brunswick was able to pull the mild upset, it will face either Portland (14-1-1) or Gorham (11-3-2) in Saturday’s Class A Final, likely at Falmouth High School. Morse’s best season in years came to an end in the semifinals. The Shipbuilders went 9-5 in the regular season and earned the No. 4 seed in Eastern A. They held off visiting No. 5 Waterville, 2-0, in the quarterfinals, but were ousted, 5-0, at top-ranked Bangor Saturday to wind up 10-6. “It’s a really disappointing way to end a terrific season,” said Morse coach Thomas Rackmales. “We had unbelievable support from our fans today, all season really. We’re so grateful for that support and sorry we couldn’t give a bet-

Morse’s Charlotte Recknagel took part as an individual and had the 46th-fastest time.

ter show. I’m sad for our seniors. They led the way all year with commitment and focus. We’ll look back on this season with pride. The team had some really good wins and we had fun together.”

Girls’ soccer The top-ranked Brunswick girls entered the week two wins from defending their Class A crown. The Dragons were an untouchable 14-0 in the regular season and had their way with No. 8 Erskine (4-0) in the quarterfinals and No. 5 Hampden (3-0) in the semis, setting up a home regional final test against secondranked Bangor Wednesday. The teams didn’t play this season. They last met in the 2008 quarterfinals (a 2-0 Brunswick win). If the Dragons move on to another state game, they’ll either face Scarborough (16-0) or Thornton Academy (13-3), the team they vanquished a year ago, in the Class A state final Saturday, likely at Falmouth High.

Cross country The cross country state championship meets were held Saturday in Belfast and Mt. Ararat sparkled. The Eagles were second in both meets, running behind Scarborough’s boys and Cheverus’ girls. Mt. Ararat’s girls’ team was paced by junior Emma Wood (fifth, 19:11.57). Senior Kate Spies (ninth, 19:40.93),

Brunswick’s Kathleen McMahon is closely followed by Mt. Ararat’s Emma Wood during Saturday’s Class A state championship meet. Wood wound up passing McMahon to finish fifth, while McMahon placed seventh. The Eagles were second to Cheverus as a team. The Dragons came in fifth.

junior Emelia McGrath (13th, 19:53.89), senior Chloe Emerson (20th, 20:34.28) and sophomore Lauren McNett (23rd, 20:38.62) also scored for a team total of 68 points, 23 behind the Stags. Brunswick’s girls were fifth with 168 points. Junior Kathleen McMahon (seventh, 19:17.68) led the way with freshman Teresa Murphy (16th, 19:59.04), freshman Sabrina Levesque (41st, 21:27.86), senior Meghan McDonough (45th, 21:45.77) and junior Jasmine Boyle (59th, 22:22.75) also scoring. Morse didn’t score as a team, but two individuals took part. Sophomore Charlotte Recknagel had the 46th-fastest time (21:41.80) and freshman Amy Franklin was 51st (21:59.02). On the boys’ side, Mt. Ararat had 96 points and was 25 behind Scarborough.

The Eagles featured individual runner-up, junior Andy Reifman-Packett (16:28.85), along with other scorers senior Nick Parsons (10th, 16:57.35), senior Jake Letourneau (14th, 17:06.50), senior Nick Demosthenes (28th, 17:44.98) and senior Peter Burtt (42nd, 18:12.16). Brunswick was 14th with 289 points. Junior Jacob Schwab (35th, 17:56.81), senior George Mills (36th, 18:01.02), junior Benson Worthington (55th, 18:29.61), sophomore Alex Nichols (76th, 19:07.90) and senior Patrick Horan (87th, 19:34.34) were the scorers. Mt. Ararat’s Reifman-Packett and Parsons, Wood, Spies and McGrath, along with Brunswick’s McMahon and Murphy, made the cut and qualified for the New England championships, to be held Saturday, Nov. 13 in Vermont.

‘Forbidden Broadway’ tops A&E calendar

By Scott Andrews One of the funniest shows in the long history of the New York theater tops this week’s offerings on the arts and entertainment calendar: A national traveling production of “Forbidden Broadway,” a wildly funny spoof of the shows and stars of the Great White Way, visits Portland this Friday under the aegis of Portland Ovations. Also on Friday, the Portland Wind Trio, comprising three University of Southern Maine School of Music professors, performs on the school’s Gorham campus with a program titled “Something Borrowed, Something New.” On Saturday in Portland, Dimensions in Jazz presents the Explorer’s Club, a sevenman ensemble led by saxophonist Charlie Kohlhase. Portland Symphony Orchestra takes off for musical outer space on Tuesday with “Planets,” a program that features a number of eclectic and exotic offerings, including Gustav Holst’s famous orchestral score of that name plus a very popular, very modern work by Charles Adams.

‘Forbidden Broadway’

The Tony is the most prestigious honor in American theater, and it’s only granted to Broadway shows. But sometimes that restriction is tweaked a bit to pay tribute to something that’s playing Off-Broadway. Such is the case with “Forbidden Broadway,” a notoriously funny parody of some of American Musical Theater’s most famous shows and stars. I’ve seen it several times, and I love its belly-busting humor and style. “Forbidden Broadway” was conceived and written by Gerard Alessandrini and originally staged Off-Broadway in 1982. It’s been playing more or less continuously ever since, and in 2006 the show received a special “Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theatre.” Two men and two women comprise the entire cast. The format is simple: a musical revue comprising about 20 sketches, each satirizing a famous Broadway show, star

or producer. The show is continuously updated, with some old sketches being periodically replaced by newer ones. Alessandrini is a genius in finding salient points in each show to mock. An exemple is “Chicago,” where Alessandrini’s targets include director/choreographer Bob Fosse’s famously angular dance poses, skimpy costumes and racy situations. Other lampooned shows include “Mary Poppins,” “Annie,” “Into the Woods,” “Wicked,” “Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera,” contributed “Rent,” “Spamalot,” “Fid”Forbidden Broadway” is a Tony Award-winning spoof of shows dler on the Roof,” “Hairand stars of the Great White Way that has been playing for spray” and “Cats.” Indinearly 30 years. A national traveling company brings the show to viduals singled out for Portland Nov. 5. spoofing include Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Liza Minnelli tra. Hale plays flute and piccolo, and has been a member of the Portland Symphony and Barbra Streisand. Portland Ovations presents the national Orchestra since 1977. Friday’s program runs the gamut from tour of “Forbidden Broadway” at 8 p.m. Nov. 5 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland Baroque to modern, beginning with an 18th-century trio sonata by Johann SebasCity Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800. tian Bach and ending with an arrangement Portland Wind Trio Three professors at the University of of Joe Garland’s “In the Mood,” a classic Southern Maine School of Music are mid-20th century jazz tune. Catch this concert at 8 p.m. Nov. 5 at teaming up on Friday with an interesting program titled, “Something Borrowed, Corthell Hall on the University of Southern Maine’s Gorham campus. Call 780-5555. Something Blue.” Charlie Kohlhase’s Comprised of bassoonist Ardith Keef, clarinetist Thomas Parchman and flutist Explorer’s Club Alison Hale, the Portland Wind Trio has Charlie Kohlhase is a saxophonist – alto, been performing together for several de- tenor and baritone – and composer who is cades. Keef is a member of the Portland well known in Boston-area jazz circles for Symphony Orchestra and plays with numer- leading a variety of ensembles. One of his ous other groups Maine Chamber Ensemble most recent projects is the Explorer’s Club, and Maine Baroque Ensemble. Parchman a seven-man group that’s most notable for came to Maine in 1984 as a result of a joint having two saxophones and two drumsearch between the University of Southern mers. Dimensions in Jazz will present the Maine and the Portland Symphony Orches- Explorer’s Club this Saturday as part of its ongoing program of hosting top national and regional acts. A couple of years ago, Kohlhase released “Adventures,” his new group’s first recording, which was well received by the public and reviewers. Troy Collins described it in All About Jazz as “a bracing and bold album.” Collins explained: “A versatile and inventive writer, Kohlhase pens intricate charts, balancing the rich multi-layered voicings of a large ensemble with the nimble dexterity of a small combo. Maxi-

mizing the ensemble’s raw sonic potential, his clever arrangements veer from the thorny contrapuntal fantasy of ‘Superhero Beatdown’ to the ornate unison lines of ‘Utensor.’” Dave Wayne commented on the unusual use of two drummers in Jazz Review: “I find Kohlhase’s use of the dual drummers to be quite remarkable. Instead of having them play together all the time, Kohlhase pits one against the other – trading off parts and fills, one provides just accents or plays along with the front line while the other lays down the groove with the bassist. His compositions often have similar role reversals for the other instruments.” Dimensions in Jazz presents Charlie Kohlhase’s Explorer’s Club at 8 p.m. Nov. 6 at Woodford Congregational Church, 202 Woodford St. in Portland. Call 828-1310.

Portland Symphony Orchestra The Portland Symphony Orchestra is blasting off for outer space – musically speaking. Maestro Robert Moody’s Nov. 9 program is titled “The Planets,” and it features three 20th-century works inspired by visions of space. The most modern of the three opens the concert. Charles Adams, a Massachusetts native who has worked most of his life in San Francisco, wrote “Short Ride in a Fast Machine” in 1986, and it’s become his most frequently performed work. It has been described as “manic,” “almost sadistic” and “joyfully exuberant.” But the most interesting comment comes from the composer himself: “You know how it is when someone asks you to ride in a terrific sports car, and then you wish you hadn’t.” The middle piece on the program is John Williams’ orchestral suite from “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” the Academy Award-nominated score from the Stephen Spielberg film. Musically speaking, its most interesting feature is the celebrated fivenote theme, which appears in fragments near the beginning and grandly morphs into a robust climax when the aliens appear. The wrap-up will be British composer Gustav Holst’s “The Planets,” a sevenmovement orchestral tone poem that is based on the astrological interpretations of the orbiting denizens of the solar system. Portland Symphony Orchestra presents “The Planets” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

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.

Bath City Council from page 1 at 185 Front St. with his wife, Kimberly, for 14 years. He said on Wednesday that he was humbled by the win and is “looking forward to learning about the council and getting going to represent the people of Bath. I’m very excited.” Washington Street resident Eosco served four years as director of Main Street Bath prior to her election to the City Council. She was born and raised in Bath and completed the term of the late Councilor Jack Hart before winning her first full term. “I feel very relieved, and I’m excited to get to continue working at City Hall,” she said on Wednesday. Eosco runs a Facebook page called Living in Bath and has served or continues to serve on boards of the Chocolate Church Arts Center, Skate Park and Main Street Bath. She also chairs the Parking

Committee and is a corporator of Bath Savings Institution. Pagurko, of Mechanic Street, has lived in Bath for nearly 50 years and is wrapping up her second City Council term. She is a homemaker who previously packed orders at L.L. Bean and worked with mentally challenged adults through the Independence Association. “I work hard,” she said on Wednesday, “and I’ve got three more years to work harder.” Pagurko’s volunteer work has included the Christmas and Fourth of July parades, the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra and the Maine Maritime Museum. Pagurko has also served on the boards of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Main Street Bath and the Salvation Army. She has been a member of the Bath Senior Citizen’s Center, Community Policing and Volunteers in Policing, and the American

from page 1 monopole tower at 14 Oak St. Mariner required conditional approval for the tower before going through site plan and transmission tower reviews. Mariner and T-Mobile, the service provider that wants to use the tower, are suing the town to obtain the permits the Planning Board denied. The two companies filed an appeal in U.S. District Court in July, and the case is pending. They seek an injunction and a conditional use permit, as well as with every other permit required for the tower to be built and operated.

White said he thought the lawsuit galvanized support for the referendum. Chris Ciolfi, Mariner’s chief development officer, said Tuesday morning that his company and T-Mobile would continue to pursue the lawsuit. “We look forward to helping to improve the coverage in that area,” he said. “We’ve demonstrated a need; the town’s consultant has confirmed that need, so we look forward to wrapping this up and building a new site up there.”

School Board Robin Buczkowski of Woolwich was the only person to run for Regional School Unit 1’s District 1 seat, which has been filled by Charles Durfee and covers Bath and Woolwich. She earned 382 votes in Bath and 703 in Woolwich. No one ran for the District 6 (Bath and Arrowsic) seat being relinquished by Frances Tolan. Tolan received the most

write-in votes in Arrowsic with nine, followed by Melissa Textor with three. In Bath, Marie James received eight write-in votes. RSU 1 Superintendent William Shuttleworth said on Wednesday that Tolan and James appreciated the votes but declined to be on the School Board. He will approach other write-in candidates about serving. Alex Lear can be reached at 373-9060 ext. 113 or alear@theforecaster.net.

School Board

from page 1 board in 2007 and became chairman, only to be stripped of the post last spring in the fallout from from an inappropriate e-mail he sent to Maine House Speaker Hannah Pingree. He blamed his loss on his being labeled an “evil incumbent” and on “outof-district funds” allegedly spent by Ellis. “As the final figures hold, in three years there will be a lot of buyer’s remorse,” Watson said, adding the School Board will “shift to the extreme left” because Ellis is “an extreme liberal follower.” Ellis said allegations about his campaign funding “have no factual basis.” He said his campaign was largely selffunded and all contributions came from within District 1. Watson said cutting school athletics would demoralize students and said

“school pride is going to suffer” if athletics are stripped from the school budget. Ellis said he does not intend to cut athletic programs, but said everything, including athletics, should be subject to close examination when it comes to the budget process. Watson said he has enjoyed his time on the School Board. “It has been an honor to serve the people of District 1 and if they want me to run again, I will,” he said. Watson expressed concern about consolidated polling at the junior high school because District 1 is the farthest away from the school. “I don’t think that swayed the election, but a lot of people didn’t show up,” he said.
