Brunswick retreats on land purchase for police station

After the storm

By Stephanie Grinnell BRUNSWICK — The one thing the more than 50 people at Monday night’s public hearing agreed on is the town needs a better police station. In the end, however, disagreement over a plan to spend up to $1.175 million on property for a new station convinced the Town Council to withdraw the proposal. The special meeting was called in response to continuing concerns about the planned purchase at Pleasant and Stanwood streets, which the council approved on Sept. 20. Residents Monday questioned

spending that much money when the town already owns other properties that may be suitable either for a new police station or for relocation of town offices. “Why can’t we use property we already own?” Anne Dodd asked. Resident Greg Kelly described the current police station as “an embarrassment and shame,” and said it “seems like an afterthought.” He encouraged councilors to pursue the purchase at Pleasant and Stanwood streets. Several residents expressed dissatisfaction with the town See page 13

New business zoning district proposed for Mitchell Field

Asplundh Tree Expert Co. Foreman Mike Lord cuts off a section of tree trunk which was hanging over the top of a power line Nov. 9 on Butler Head in West Bath. Tree and electrical crews from as far away as New York spread across the Mid-Coast this week, cleaning up damage from a windy Nov. 7 storm.

By Stephanie Grinnell HARPSWELL — A new zoning district has been proposed to control development on the town-owned Mitchell Field property. A committee has been working to implement a master plan proposed for Mitchell Field and made the recommendation to establish a zoning district for 9 acres of the more than 119-acre property.

Town Planner Carol Tukey said the new district will be called Mitchell Field Marine Business District and will allow low-intensity business use on part of the property near the shoreline. Potential qualifying businesses include boat building, fishing-related business or lobster or crab processing, she said. See page 31

CMP: Opposition to new meters ‘clearly unreasonable’ Cape Elizabeth joins towns urging CMP to delay ‘smart’ meters

By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — The Town Council on Monday unanimously passed a resolution urging Central Maine Power Co. to delay installation of “smart” electric meters or related wireless equipment for at least 90 days. The resolution, which would give residents time to get additional information about the meters,

also encourages the Maine Public Utilities Commission to provide an opportunity for residents to speak for or against smart meters before they are installed in town. While the resolution is nonbinding and merely an expression of opinion or intention, councilors also added language See page 29

By Emily Parkhurst AUGUSTA — Central Maine Power Co. has asked the Maine Public Utilities Commission to dismiss one of two complaints filed in October by residents concerned about the safety of “smart” electric meters being installed on every CMP customer’s home or business. The complaint, filed Oct. 26 by Averyl Hill of Scarborough and signed by 11 CMP customers, asked the PUC to investigate

alleged fire safety hazards associated with installations of the new meters on homes with old wiring. It also questioned the level of training provided to employees of the company CMP has hired to do the work. “Because I had a new breaker box and wiring leading up to the meter installed by a licensed electrician last year and inspected by the town I believe I am OK,” Hill said. “But it got me thinking about the fact that there are

many aging homes in southern Maine with older wiring, so it could affect a lot of people and be an unexpected expense for homeowners.” CMP’s response, submitted Nov. 4, called the complaint “clearly unreasonable” and without merit because it was “inconsistent with applicable statues, rules and tariffs.” The response argues that “the

By Alex Lear BATH — Emergency responders have been unable to find the body of a man who reportedly jumped off the Woolwich end of the Sagadahoc Bridge Nov. 3, but they believe they now know his identity. Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry said on Wednesday that the jumper is believed to be Edwin Curtis, 33, a transient with ties to the Bath and Brunswick area. Curtis is about 6 feet tall, about 175 pounds, and white, with a shaved head. Witnesses reported seeing him jump into the Kennebec River at 5:11 p.m. Nov. 3. The Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department investigated the jumper’s identity while the Maine Marine Patrol headed the water search. 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. Merry said the search was called off

around noon on Nov. 5, with heavy rainfall coming in. The search was intense, he said, involving a helicopter, several watercraft and divers. With responders unable to make a recovery, the investigation became a missing person search, Merry said. They found a backpack in the water which witnesses had reportedly seen on Curtis’s back, Merry said. Although no official identification was found in the bag, papers and other articles led investigators to the conclusion that it belonged to Curtis. Merry, who worked for the Bath Police Department for 25 years, said several people have gone into the Kennebec River and not been found. “It’s a very turbulent river because of the tides and the undercurrents, and it makes searching very difficult,” he said.

Board urges rejection of school closure cost projection By Stephanie Grinnell HARPSWELL — Citing school department errors in projected costs, the Board of Selectmen has sent a letter on Nov. 5 to Maine Education Commissioner Angela Faherty asking the state not to approve the current amount of $195,962.43 to keep the West Harpswell School open in the 2011-2012 school year. While townspeople want to see the school remain open, the selectmen are questioning the method School Administrative District 75 used to arrive at its cost estimate. Selectmen cited an “overstated” amount of more than $22,000 for teacher salaries, a mistake acknowledged by SAD 75 officials. Town Administrator Kristi Eiane, a member of the School Closure Cost Review Team, said an amendment to the cost estimate received Oct. 25 fixed a more than $4,000 error related to fuel costs. “The fuel line charge, which was charged to West Harpswell School, ended up being another school,” she said. “But we had never really resolved the teacher salary line.” Eiane said the SCCRT met to discuss the amendments the morning after they were received. “We did not believe the amount was correctly stated,” she said. “There is a specific issue with the teachers line for salaries.” Eiane said the estimate made by the school department will be assessed to Harpswell taxpayers and paid to SAD 75. “That $195,963.43, we think that needs

to be revised,” she said. Attached to the letter sent to Faherty was a report made by the SCCRT. The report offered comments to the education commissioner regarding the process, in addition to outlining work that was done by the team. “The other things are more general in nature,” Eiane said. One issue brought up by the SCCRT is the length of time a town has to respond — currently 10 days. The reports notes the SCCRT has “been challenged to review the district’s figures in a relatively short period of time, and believed the 10-day comment period should be lengthened in order to provide adequate time for the municipal review process.” Eiane said towns that have not dealt with closure of a school will be pressed within the 10-day time frame. “If you are a town that’s never had to address this before, 10 days is not enough,” she said. Other issues brought up by the SCCRT included inconsistency in interpretation of regulations from year to year. Specifically, that “SAD 75 reported that it received new guidance from the (Department of Education) in preparing this year’s cost data. The change in interpretation of the regulations created inconsistencies from year to year, making comparisons and projections difficult.” The review team questioned if onetime expenses should be included in the calculations as well as questioning prepaid items, using fuel purchases as an example. The review team noted there could be an increase in costs if the school

Selectmen also noted in the letter there may be an issue with the way last year’s total was estimated. “Our comments are limited to the $195,963.43 estimated figure for base year 2009-2010. If, however, you are accepting comments on errors in last year’s estimated figure of $219,030.60,

which was approved by the Commissioner, we would like to be advised,” the letter states. The SCCRT declined to comment to the education commissioner regarding changes to last year’s estimate, stating “with respect to any changes that may call into question the estimated cost savings of the prior year, the SCCRT takes no position at this time.” Stephanie Grinnell can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or

Topsham selectmen support state land deal By Alex Lear TOPSHAM — The state is expected to turn over approximately 21 acres of land off the Coastal Connector to the town before the end of the year, at no charge. The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Nov. 4 to have Town Manager Jim Ashe sign a memorandum of agreement with the Maine Department of Transportation to accept the state-owned land, known as the Hickey property. The parcel is located between the Topsham

Fairgrounds and the Coastal Connector. Ashe said the DOT had initially been looking to build a garage on the property but opted instead to build it next to Topsham’s Public Works garage. The land was ultimately planned for town recreation purposes if the state did not use it and state Sen. Seth Goodall, D-Richmond, has been involved in the transfer deal. Ashe also said veterans’ memorial signs had been placed on the property without the state’s permission and that

the town had been working with the American Legion to locate a memorial on a piece of land on Foreside Road. Goodall is helping to work on that arrangement as well. “Where it is now is impossible for people to stop to go look at it,” Ashe said. “There’s no right-of-way. The only rightof-way we’d have is to get there from the (Topsham) Fairgrounds.” Ashe noted that the state land is not on any tax rolls now. He expressed a desire to complete the transfer before the end

of Gov. John Baldacci’s administration. “I’d hate to see us lose the opportunity to have this piece of land turned over to the town,” Ashe said. This was the Board of Selectmen’s first meeting with new members Andrew Mason and Marie Brillant, who replaced Sandra Consolini and Steve Edmondson. The board voted to retain Ron Riendeau as its chairman and Jim Trusiani as vicechairman. Alex Lear can be reached at 373-9060 ext. 113 or alear@

More than $20M authorized for regional transportation projects By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — The Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System has announced more than $20 million in funding for road, path and bus projects in greater Portland. The funding is made up of local, state and federal contributions and was decided after PACTS undertook a regional analysis of the needs of the 15 municipalities and seven public transit systems in the area.

In Portland, funding was authorized for several paving projects including about $1.1 million for paving along the Eastern Promenade and almost $800,000 to pave Capisic Street. The money for the paving projects will be available in the next few months. On Park Avenue, $260,000 will be allocated to improve bike lanes and pedestrian ways. Nearly $200,000 was set aside for a pedestrian connection at the Interstate 295 Exit 7 ramp from Marginal Way to the Back Cove trail. Both those projects are scheduled to happen between October 2011 and September 2013. About $112,000 is earmarked for an electronic ticket program at Casco Bay Lines. In Scarborough, $3 million will go toward construction of the intersection at Dunston Corner. That funding will become available between October 2011 and September 2013. Funding for connecting the Eastern trail in South Portland to Scarborough is also earmarked for that time.

South Portland is also slated to get about $203,000 for a Mill Creek transit hub and nearly $240,000 for a transit maintenance building. In Cape Elizabeth, more than $40,000 in funding will be allocated for a project yet to be determined, but possibly for the Shore Road pathway. That funding will be available in the coming months.

Falmouth is getting more than $30,000 for paving Route 1. About $766,000 is going toward paving of Route 1 in Freeport. In Cumberland, more than $400,000 was authorized for paving and sidewalk construction along Tuttle Road. Kate Bucklin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or

News briefs Topsham to receive almost $75K for park project TOPSHAM — The town is one of four Maine communities that will receive a total of more than $170,000 in grant money, the Maine Department of Conservation announced Wednesday. The grant funding comes from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund. Topsham is receiving $74,850 for the Head of Tide Park project on the Cathance River, which includes a boat landing, picnic and fishing areas. The Maine grants were announced as national legislation that ensures the full funding of $900 million a year for LWCF is pending in Congress. The program has provided more than $40 million to Maine since its 1964 inception, and it already has the support of

U.S. Reps. Michael Michaud, D-Maine, and Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, and has received support in the past from U.S. Sens. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, and Susan Collins, R-Maine. “The grants provide money for outdoor recreation for towns and municipalities, anything from swimming pools to playgrounds to ski areas to golf courses,” according to Mick Rogers, Grant and Recreation manager for the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, under MDOC. There were 21 potential applicants this year for the federal grants, which must be matched 50-50 by the receiving communities, Rogers said. He noted that the application process can be lengthy and requires site visits to applying projects. Rogers said the projects are expected to be approved by the National Park Service in the next six weeks.

First Maine pesticide summit aims to answer questions By Stephanie Grinnell BRUNSWICK — With several Maine towns already discussing banning pesticides and a few with ordinances in place, the Maine Pesticide Summit on Nov. 20 will mark the first time there has been a gathering to discuss their use in the state. The summit at the Unitarian Universalist Church Nov. 20 will feature Paul Tukey, who has spent years speaking about the hazards of pesticide application and encouraging use of organic alternatives. “What makes my presentation effective is I understand these products and what they do,” Tukey said. Scarborough town councilors addressed the issue last week. “The hearing in Scarborough (Nov. 1) was one of the most highly attended. Threequarters of the people were concerned,” Tukey said, adding most lawn care professionals feel because pesticides are approved for use by the Environmental Protection Agency, they should be able to use them. “I used to be one of them and I applied this stuff and made myself sick. That’s what gave me my initial motivation.” Tukey calls pesticides “poison” and said the hazards are well known. He said children, at the very least, should be protected. He said some studies have linked pesticide exposure to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism in children. “At a minimum, let’s protect kids. There’s no reason to use (pesticides),” Tukey said, “because you’re worried about a few dandelions.” Concerns about ridding school properties of flowering weeds come from parents of children allergic to bees, he said, adding there are “other steps you can take.” Pesticides can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin and eyes, Tukey said. When pesticides are used, less than 1 percent of the active ingredient goes to the target; the rest ends up in ground and surface water. Tukey said the goal of the summit is to gather activists, town officials and citizens for networking and sharing information. “I think what we really want to do is frame the issues for people and ultimately make it statewide,” he said. Several communities already have ordinances in place, including Brunswick, Ogunquit, Castine, Rockport and Camden, Tukey said, while others are in discussions to create ordinances regarding pesticide use. “Cumberland and Falmouth are in the conversation and they are sending people to the summit,” he said. Falmouth resident Barbara DiBiase said as a private land owner, she tries not to use chemical treatments when possible, opting instead for organic alternatives. She said as a master gardener, she has used pesticides in the past but has since “tried to learn ways to manage yards without using chemicals.” DiBiase said Falmouth schools use a corn

TheShops Shops at at The

gluten fertilizer, but she said it’s her understanding it will take up to three years for all the chemicals already in the ground to break down and the schools to see a change. “Nothing is really going to give us a perfect green golf course lawn without chemicals,” DiBiase said. “I personally am not supportive of banning all pesticide use.” She said some chemicals are needed to maintain crop levels so food crops such as apples are not destroyed by pests. However, she added she is very concerned about run-off into bodies of water. DiBiase said she anticipates a change in what products are available in stores if enough people are educated about pesticides. “I’d like to see us become more educated,” DiBiase said. “I’m not looking to ban anything in Falmouth. But I would say it’s on people’s radar here.” Some municipalities restrict pesticide use near bodies of water while others are more comprehensive. Brunswick’s ordinance allows application of only organic products on town-owned land, which is defined as “all land owned or leased by the Town of Brunswick and managed by the Town of Brunswick Parks and Recreation Department, including outdoor grounds such as parks, playing fields, conservation and open space.” However, the ordinance allows a waiver in case of “an immediate threat to human health or environmental quality, or an immediate threat of substantial property damage or loss.”

Comment on this story at:

Tukey said for a long time, it has been accepted that organic alternatives cost more than chemicals. He said organic applications result in the need to mow less and water less and lawns don’t require dethatching because the grass doesn’t grow as quickly or as thick. “You have to take in the whole equation,” he said. DiBiase noted organic options are often less concentrated than chemical treatments and may take more time to show results. DiBiase said she hopes the summit will

help educate people as to what each town has already done as well as open a discussion on how to create awareness. She said she would like to see action taken at the state level rather then each municipality creating its own set of rules. “But legislation won’t go through unless there are benefits for both sides,” DiBiase said. The Maine Pesticide Summit takes place Nov. 20 at Unitarian Universalist Church, 15 Pleasant St., from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. RSVP by calling 871-1810. The event is open to the public.

Intentionally out of touch Despite the many ways we are all connected in this wired world of cell phones, e-mail, text messaging, Facebook and Twitter, we are also increasingly out of touch. Or, more to the point, we are only in touch with the privileged few and out of touch with reality.

The Universal


As a journalist, I constantly find myself trying to figure out how to contact people the newspapers and magazines I write for want me to interview. When I first started writing for publications in the 1960s, it was a fairly simple matter of looking someone up in the phone book. Everyone had a telephone Edgar Allen Beem and it was rare (and somehow suspect) when someone had an unlisted number.

Now, as people increasingly abandon land lines for cell phones, and there are no cell phone (or e-mail) directories, I often have to resort to tracking people down through their friends and known associates. If I’m lucky, the go-between will forward my message and I’ll eventually hear back from the person. On the one hand, the new age of non-disclosure probably protects our privacy, but it also insulates us from the outside world. I’m all in favor of do-not-call lists in order avoid the annoyance of telemarketers, but there is an aspect of a shared public life that gets sacrificed when no one can contact you except people to whom you have given your cell phone number or e-mail address. If you wonder why some polls showed candidates

much closer than the results turned out to be, it may simply be that pollsters can only reach old farts with land-line phones. When I worked at Portland Public Library in the 1970s, we constantly used city directories to research and find people. You could find out who lived where and even what they did for a living. Now such listings would probably be regarded by many people as an invasion of privacy. What is it, I wonder, that we are afraid of? Why are we hiding in plain sight? I like to think I make it easy for people to contact me. I’m in the phone book, I have an answering machine, my name and picture are on my column, and I don’t mind if the paper gives out my e-mail address. I do not, however, tweet or text and I rarely give out my cell phone number, preferring that only my family call me when I’m not at home. (Can you hear me now? I don’t get cell phone reception at home.) In an odd way, the access that everyone now has to communications technology, incessantly tweeting, texting, and chatting wherever and whenever, may actually be contributing to a collective bunker mentality if we are only in touch with the likeminded. In the recent election, we saw a new level of noncommunication as many conservative candidates adopted the strategy of refusing to talk to the news media, or only to friendly news media, and in some cases even ducking out of public debates. I guess it’s a lot easier to remain confident in your own fixed ideas if you don’t have to answer for them. I just hope we haven’t elected a bunch of people in this country who are so out of touch that they can’t thoughtfully consider an alternative point of view. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth. The Universal Notebook is his personal, weekly look at the world around him.

Republican priorities in question Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has publicly stated that his top priority is to make Barack Obama a one-term president. This is a stunning statement from a supposed public servant, and we can only hope that, despite his public pronouncements, he will begin reordering his priorities to deal with the very real problems facing our nation today. It must be dismaying indeed to the millions of unemployed Americans that the top Republican in the Senate places a higher priority on defeating President Obama in 2012 than on working to improve the economy and create jobs right now. It can’t be very reassuring to injured servicemen and women returning from the wars to know that their care and well-being ranks lower on McConnell’s priority list than a political victory. Sure, energy independence is important, but apparently it ranks well below de-

feating the president on McConnell’s list of things to do. There are so many urgent, important concerns facing our nation today – battling terrorism, shrinking the debt, protecting the environment, making health care affordable and available to all Americans, caring for the elderly and the disabled, educating our children – the list goes on and on. We can only hope that Maine’s own Republican senators take their responsibility to govern more seriously than their leader does, and that they will work with both the Democratic majority and other Senate Republicans who are committed to serving the public that elected them in order to address the nation’s real priorities.

said the council previously considered a fire station at the same location, as well as a Walgreens store. She urged councilors to abide by a proverb: “Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.” Judy Gorby said the public has had enough time to comment on the property purchase and said she thinks police officers would be able to respond quickly without running into traffic problems. Councilor Benjamin Tucker said there were important objections made by the public and he moved to repeal the purchase ordinance and create a committee to study the issue. Councilor Gerard Favreau answered questions about using Hawthorne School as a town office, an option he said has been studied in depth. Town Manager Gary Brown said the current use as a school does not lend itself to easy conversion to a police station. He said an existing police station at Brunswick Naval Air Station was considered by the council, but rejected as being in similar condition to the existing police station. Another base location suggested by the town was rejected by the Navy, he said. Brown said moving town employees out of the current Federal Street location and having the Police department take it over also will not work because of regulations for a “sallyport” for securing people within the police station. He said renovations and demolition would be required to make the three floors usable as a police station. Council Chairwoman Joanne King said the Times Record building is currently for sale and has housed paying tenants, including Southern Maine Community College, for the past several years. She

purchase of the former Times Record building. Kelly said the building is in “terminally bad condition” as well as “useless and invisible.” Some suggested the building be converted for use as a police station. “Before we go spending money on another project, we ought to either dispose of, or sell, the Times Record building or fix it up so we can get tenants,” resident Bob Jorgensen said, adding sale of the building could provide funding for renovations or construction of a new police station. He criticized the Pleasant-Stanwood location as “an odd place to put a cop shop.” Louise Rosen said she would like to see a “bigger picture” plan as well as more community input regarding the police station. “Maybe in the end the council is going to look like a genius,” she said. Jennifer Johnson said she was told by Councilor David Watson now “is the best time” to purchase property for the proposed police station. “I believe you made a hasty decision on buying,” she said. “When you make bad choices, it hurts the town of Brunswick.” Kevin Bunker volunteered to serve as a citizen representative if the council chose to form a committee to review other options for the police station. “(Pleasant and Stanwood) is a good spot for something else, but not a police station,” he said. Carol Sargeant, who lives on Stanwood Street, said the location would not allow fast access for police officers, especially when Amtrak trains begin running on nearby tracks. “I can’t imagine having any facility that needs to get in and out at the corner,” she said. Resident John Donovan said there should be more transparency and supported establishing a committee to include citizens. “The council did not do a good job explaining,” he said. Marybeth Burbank said there has been a lot of confusion about the vote and what council intentions are for the property purchase at Pleasant and Stanwood. She

Keith Kitchens gets tackled downfield during Saturday night’s 20-7 loss, which ended Brunswick’s season at 6-4.

End of the line for Brunswick teams Three Brunswick teams saw their seasons and with it, the 2010 fall campaign, come to a close in recent days. On the gridiron, the Dragons, seeded eighth, shocked topranked Lawrence, 14-13, in the quarterfinals, but after a one-day rain postponement, their year ended in the semifinals with a 20-7 loss at No. 4 Lewiston. After a scoreless first half, the Blue Devils scored on three straight possessions to pull away. Brunswick’s lone score came on a 1-yard sneak by Kyle Franklin with 2:11 to go, but Lewiston recovered the on-side kick attempt and ran out the clock. “They really came out and

out-physicaled us there on that first drive. We coughed it up the next series and lost our poise,” Brunswick coach Dan Cooper said. Last Wednesday, both Dragons soccer teams saw their season end in heartache at the hands of Bangor. The girls appeared unbeatable going into the regional final. The defending state champions, Brunswick was 14-0 in the regular season and outscored the opposition, 70-2. After blanking No. 8 Erskine (4-0) and No. 5 Hampden (3-0), the Dragons ran into a Bangor buzzsaw and fell, 2-1, as their season ended at 16-1. Brunswick’s 36-game win

Smart meters from page 1 Complaint is not a complaint against the installation of new Smart Meters, but rather is a complaint as to a utility’s underlying right to replace meters or perform any type of disconnection.” It goes on to explain that the complainants cite disruption of electrical wires as the reason for the alleged fire hazards. CMP asserts that the complainants are arguing that the company should not be able to disconnect a customer under any circumstance, something that it says it is allowed to do by law. In a letter sent to the PUC on Nov. 5, Hill addressed CMP’s argument: “None of the complainants contested the right of CMP to replace meters in homes with older wiring.” Hill explained that it was the combination of a potential fire hazard and advertisements by the meter installation company, VSI, that it would hire installation technicians without experience or electricians’ licenses, that were the origins of the complaint. She asked that the PUC determine how VSI’s employees would be trained before allowing CMP to continue the installation process. “I would like to see CMP have a published and clear policy on their procedures for dealing with old wiring and smart meter installations and have that sent to homeowners in advance, alerting them to the potential expense and problem,” Hill said. She added that she volunteers with the elderly and worries that older customers might not be able to afford to replace wiring in their homes, leaving them without electricity during the winter. In its response, CMP stated that, prior to the smart meter project, the company conducted more than 17,000 regular meter installations per year. “The approach that the Company is taking in deployment of Smart Meters is consistent with its policy for all other meter installations,” the letter stated. The meters, which communicate wirelessly with each other, then broadcast signals sent by antennas and repeaters to CMP’s Augusta office, have already been installed on more than 70,000 homes in the greater Portland area. CMP plans to install meters on all 620,000 homes in its service area by 2012.

Health, security concerns CMP has requested an extension until Nov. 18 on the second PUC complaint, filed by Elisa Boxer-Cook of Scarborough, who cited radiation-related health concerns and cyber security as the reasons for the complaint. CMP’s letter, dated Nov. 3, indicated Boxer-Cook had no opposition to the extension. The letter also made a formal “general denial” of Boxer-Cook’s allegations, but did not provide a detailed argument. The Maine Center for Disease Control this week provided CMP with some support. On Nov. 8 it released a summary of its findings on the meters, stating that “studies to date give no consistent or convincing evidence of a causal relation between (radio frequency) exposure in the range of frequencies and power used by smart meters and adverse health effects.” The CDC compared smart meters to cell phones, calling the radiation from phones much greater than the meters, and cited a May 2010 study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology that found no link between cell phone use and two of the most common types of brain cancer. Both PUC complaints asked CMP to offer customers the ability to opt out of the smart meter service, something the company has said it will not be able to offer because of the software and infrastructure required. “If given the option I would opt-out of receiving a smart meter, especially since


Comment on this story at:

the meter I have isn’t broken and works just fine,” Hill said. “Just because something isn’t the latest doesn’t mean it’s not the smartest option.” Dr. Amy Kustra Barksdale of the Portland Community Health Center and Scarborough’s local health official, Dr. Stephen Kirsch of Scarborough Family Physicians, both provided letters of support to BoxerCook’s complaint and asked that people be given the right to opt out of the service. They said people who may have medically documented electromagnetic hypersensitivity or devices such as pacemakers that could be affected by the wireless radiation. But the CDC’s review cited unnamed double-blind laboratory studies that found those diagnosed with electromagnetic hypersensitivity could not document exposure any more accurately than those without the diagnosis. Gary Conover, owner of Computerworks in Scarborough, also filed a letter in support of Boxer-Cook’s complaint, citing concerns that the meters may become targets for hackers seeking private customer data. In his letter, Conover explained potential weaknesses in the mesh networks the smart meters utilize to communicate. CMP has stated in the past that it already has encryption software in place to protect data, but has not responded to Conover’s specific concerns.

Next steps “In both cases, the commission will be deciding what other pieces of the process are needed,” PUC spokeswoman Evelyn


deFrees said. While there is not a formal time-line for evaluating the two complaints and CMP’s responses, deFrees said after the PUC gathers any additional information it requires, it will make a determination about whether it will start an adjudicatory process or dismiss the complaints. Either party has the right to appeal the PUC’s decision or to lobby the state Legislature to change the law passed last year that allows and regulates smart meters. On Oct. 20, the Scarborough Town Council asked CMP to delay installation of the smart meters for 90 days. The council is in the process of scheduling a public meeting for residents to voice their concerns and ask questions of PUC and CMP officials. Councilors in Cape Elizabeth passed a similar resolution on Nov. 8 asking for a 90-day moratorium until a PUC forum could be scheduled. Scarborough Town Manager Tom Hall suggested Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough could hold a joint meeting for residents that would satisfy both towns’ resolutions. During an open public comment session on Nov. 1, the South Portland City Council heard from residents asking the city to consider mirroring Scarborough’s 90-day moratorium. The Council has not acted on the request. In Yarmouth, where smart meter installations have recently started, the town has posted a link on its website to the Federal Communication Commission’s report on radio frequency safety.

Out & About

Symphony plus Sinatra, Hot Club, and more By Scott Andrews There’s a diverse wealth of interesting music coming up over the course of the next week or so. The riches start this Saturday and Sunday when the Portland Symphony Orchestra morphs into Pops mode, and features a guest who performs a Frank Sinatra tribute act. Portland Ovations presents two backto-back performances next week. First up, Nov. 16, is the Hot Club of San Francisco, a “Gypsy jazz” ensemble that’s modeled after the famous Hot Club de France. The next night it’s Kirill Gerstein, a pianist who recently won the Gilmore Artist Award, perhaps the world’s most prestigious and remunerative prize for keyboard virtuosity. Joy Kills Sorrow, a band from Boston that’s gone well beyond its bluegrass roots, plays Nov. 18 in Portland.

Portland Symphony Orchestra An American musical legend is celebrated this weekend as the Portland Symphony Orchestra performs a pair of Pops concerts. The program is titled “Simply Sinatra,” and maestro Robert Moody has invited vocalist Steve Lippia to perform the role of Frank Sinatra. Born in Hoboken, N.J., Sinatra started singing professionally in the 1930s and became a top-rated national star and teen idol with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in the 1940s. As he reached middle age in the 1950s and lost his teenage followers, he reignited his career with more adult material and kept singing through the early 1990s, when he finally retired. Lippia’s tribute act flows from his love of the style of Sinatra and his many timeless hit tunes, such as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Cheek To Cheek” and “My Way.” Lippia loves the “comfort zone” that seems to engulf the music of this era, and he’s especially concerned with conveying the spirit of the lyrics. Lippia’s high-impact, high-energy show ranges from powerful to subtle, sassy to wistful and elegant to sublime. Lippia has headlined to standing-roomonly crowds at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club in New York City, backed by the Nelson Riddle and Woody Herman Orchestras. And like Sinatra, he’s enjoyed long-running gigs at several Las Vegas venues. The show isn’t totally Sinatra; Lippia also performs tunes made popular by Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis Jr. Portland Symphony Orchestra performs “Simply Sinatra” twice this weekend: at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 14. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Comment on this story at:

A guitarist himself, Reinhardt adopted and adapted the musical vocabulary of big bands of the time into small, all-strings stylings that often alternate between flamboyant and melancholy. With Grappelli, a violinist, he formed the Hot Club de France, a Paris-based quintet that quickly attracted the attention of American jazz musicians, such as Louis Armstrong, Coleman Hawkins and Benny Carter. Decades later, Reinhardt collaborated with Dizzy Gillespie. The Hot Club of San Francisco was created by Paul Mehling, a California guitarist who became immersed in the sounds of mid-20th century jazz as he grew up listening to his father’s huge record collection. As a professional musician, Mehling found to his delight that today’s audiences are ready for a revival of the Reinhardt-Grappelli five-instrument Gypsy jazz format. Mehling’s success has inspired imitations all over the world, including a Hot Club of New York and a Hot Club of Norway. For next Tuesday’s performance, the ensemble will play accompaniment to several silent films in a program titled “Silent Surrealism.” Portland Ovations presents the Hot Club of San Francisco at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at Hannaford Hall in the Abromson Community Education Center at 88 Bedford St. on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Kirill Gerstein In her first few years at the helm of Portland Ovations, Executive Director Aimee Petrin has established a policy of engaging recent winners of the Gilmore Artist Prize, a $300,000 stipend that is awarded every four years to an unsuspecting pianist by an anonymous panel of judges. Because of the extreme secrecy behind the selection process, the Gilmore is sometimes referred to as the “stealth award.” Previously, Portland Ovations has present Gilmore winners Ingrid Fliter, Leif Ove Andsnes and Piotr Anderszewski. Almost as soon as word got out this January, Petrin hired the 2010 honoree, Russian-

The Hot Club of San Francisco, which visits Portland Nov. 16, is famous for playing “Gypsy jazz” in the style of Django Reinhart, Stephane Grappelli and the Hot Club de France.

born pianist Kirill Gerstein. A child prodigy who was raised in Russia and started playing jazz as a 10-yearold, Gerstein came to the U.S. at age 14 to study jazz in Boston – the youngest college student in the history of the Berklee School. He switched to classical a year later, after burning out on jazz. Becoming an American citizen in 2003, Gerstein still lives near Boston and teaches piano at the New England Conservatory. He also holds a similar professorship at a major German music academy. In addition to solo piano recitals, Gerstein has played with many of the world’s top orchestras and conductors. Gerstein’s Nov. 17 program will include works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Carl Czerny and Franz Liszt. Portland Ovations presents Kirill Gerstein at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

a band that’s rooted in bluegrass but has embraced other acoustic styles. Formed under the banner “a modern American string band,” Joy Kills Sorrow emerged from Boston’s fertile folk music scene in 2005, releasing an eponymous debut album in 2007. Founding member Matthew Arcara, a subtle and expressive guitarist, was the 2006 winner of Winfield’s National Flatpicking Championship. The band’s most recent addition, mandolinist Jacob Jolliff, is the Berklee School’s first fullscholarship mandolin student. The band boasts a large repertoire of original songs, most penned by bassist Bridget Kearney, winner of the 2006 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Singer Emma Beaton, the 2008 Canadian Folk Music Awards’ Young Performer of the Year, adds an earthy, powerful presence. Joy Kills Sorrow plays at 8 p.m. Nov. 18 at One Longfellow Square (corner of State and Congress) in Portland. Call 761-1757.

Hot Club of San Francisco Another retrospective act comes to the Port City two days later, as Portland Ovations hosts the Hot Club of San Francisco on Nov. 16. HCSF plays “Gypsy jazz,” a format using three guitars, a violin and a bass that was created in the 1930s by two Frenchmen: Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Reinhardt, who was born 100 years ago, grew up in a Gypsy community near Paris, fell under the influence of American jazz artists and their recordings in the 1920s.

You’re Never Too Smart to Get Conned By John Gannon, President of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation Smart people get conned too. Just ask Sarasota, Fla. tax attorney John McKenney. A lawyer for more than 20 years, he represents clients in front of the IRS and prepares tax returns for local businesses. He also lost $250,000 in an alleged Ponzi scheme. “There are a lot of people around here that lost a lot more money than I did who were smarter and more experienced investors,” McKenney said. The common misconception about investment fraud victims is that they are gullible, unsophisticated or financially illiterate. In fact, research conducted for the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and AARP reveals just the opposite is true. The survey of more than 300 investors—half of whom were victimized by fraud—showed that victims tend to be higher income, college-educated, self-reliant and are more financially knowledgeable than non-victim investors. Many investment fraud victims are professionals. They’re doctors, lawyers, stock

brokers, businessmen. In fact, the typical investment fraud victim is a well-educated male between the ages of 55 and 65. The problem, says Robert Cialdini, a psychologist at Arizona State University and an expert on the psychology of persuasion and influence, is that your own self confidence lowers your guard. “If you think you’re invulnerable to these things, your defenses come down and you become more vulnerable as a consequence,” he said. “So those individuals who have the background and experience, who think they know what constitutes a trick and what doesn’t, then open themselves up to the possibility of being tricked because they’re sure that they can spot it and resist it. Oftentimes they are wrong.” is a project of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, in collaboration with AARP, the Maine Office of Securities and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Are You at Risk for Investment Fraud? FINRA Foundation/AARP research shows that the typical victim of investment fraud is a well-educated male between the ages of 55 and 65. You also may be at risk if you: 1. Own high-risk investments. 2. Rely on friends, family or co-workers for advice. 3. Are open to new investment ideas. 4. Fail to check backgrounds and registrations of professionals or products. 5. Are not able to spot the persuasion tactics con men use. Test your susceptibility to fraud with the FINRA Foundation’s Risk Meter, available at

Councilor Penny Jordan said residents should have a choice about what happens to their homes, and Councilor Frank Governali said the most important aspect of the resolution is the privacy issue. “We certainly can voice our concern about how it relates to our own private property,” he said. Resident Ange Foley spoke to the council in support of the resolution. She said health, safety and privacy concerns have not been made clear by CMP. Resident Sara Merrill said she had her smart meter removed after calling CMP because she wanted more 5 information about the technology.

“There are too many unknowns,” Merrill said. “We don’t have all the numbers. We need to be better informed.” Scarborough resident Elisa Boxer-Cook, leader of a group of residents who challenged CMP’s installation of smart meters to the PUC, read a letter to the council from a Cape resident and pediatrician, Dr. Karen K. Emery of Maine Health Pediatrics in Falmouth, who couldn’t attend the meeting, but urged the council to pass the resolution. Emery’s letter said it was wise to err on the side of caution with high-frequency wireless technology that adds new exposure without first conducting thorough research. “I don’t believe we should install smart meters and wait for the science to conclusively show no risk, because by then it will be too late,” she said. “As part of Maine’s medical community, treating our most vulnerable population, I believe we need to halt instillation long enough to hold community-wide and statewide meetings discussing both sides of the science, not simply presenting CMP’s hired

experts showing no cause for concern.” At the very least, Emery said, “we should have a choice.” CMP spokesman John Carroll attended the meeting and told councilors while he is not a health expert and could not speak to the concerns of the residents, the meters are a necessary upgrade from the existing technology. He said customers could save money by monitoring their electricity usage, and CMP is becoming more green and saving time and money by eliminating the need for someone to drive to around and read meters. He said the council was voting on devices that are already in use in schools, public safety buildings, Town Hall and public buildings. “Before you act,” Carroll said, “ask if you have done the due diligence yourselves like we have.”

Mitchell Field



Performance standards

from page 1 “Things that need a lot of cooling water, thousands of gallons,” Tukey said. “It has to be related to marine use.” Mitchell Field was given to the town by the Navy and was formerly used as a fuel depot. Environmental clean up was completed before the property was transferred to the town, but Tukey said the Department of Environmental Protection continues to monitor test wells on the property. A master plan for the property was approved at town meeting in 2007, Tukey said. Since then, a committee has worked to implement the master plan suggestions. The committee has focused on three areas including updating zoning, changing the site plan review process and changing the town’s Comprehensive Plan to include the proposed Mitchell Field master plan. The new proposed district will require a change in zoning because the property is currently zoned as shoreland residential. Tukey said the zone must be changed to allow business if the parcel is to be developed. There are no other marine business districts within the shoreland or other zoning areas in Harpswell, she said. Other zones in shoreland zoning include residential, resource protection, business and commercial fishing. Zones outside the shoreland zone include a number of others, including a tower district to include the only cell phone tower in Harpswell.

Another suggested change before the marine business district is created is to update the site plan review process regarding lighting, noise and odor standards as well as visual impact considerations, Tukey said. “The committee wanted more performance standards,” she said. Currently, there are no lighting, noise or odor standards in any zone, Tukey said. There are two existing brick buildings and a metal frame building on the parcel suggested for marine use. Additional development will be limited by percentage rather than square footage, she said. The percentages vary based on the 250-foot shoreland protection zone. New construction will have to meet visual standards both from land and the ocean, according to documents prepared by the committee. Tukey said one business would be allowed on the parcel under the proposed plan. “The committee was trying to go for maximum flexibility,” she said. A public hearing last week drew residents who expressed concerns about the changes, focusing on the standards being too restrictive for business development. Consultant Mark Eyerman of Planning Decisions of South Portland has been working with the committee and introduced the changes during the public hearing. He covered consistency changes in the land use ordinance as well as the site plan review process. He said previous public meetings have revealed concerns of residents. “A concern was how this development will fit in with Mitchell Field,” Eyerman said, adding that people want to know how the development will blend with the recreational use of the lower part of the property. He said the amendments to the Comprehensive Plan

create the new district within the shoreland zone and address adding the four additional performance standards for development within the Mitchell Field district. Selectman Mark Wallace shared concerns with a number of residents and asked if the district would be workable for businesses. “It’s too restrictive, as far as I am concerned, for a business,” Wallace said. Eyerman said any business that can meet the performance standards will be allowed within the district, adding noisy businesses “would struggle.” He said a number of businesses looked at as potential development businesses all met the standards suggested by the committee. “It was clear we needed to get some buy-in from developers, engineers and business people,” Tukey said Wednesday, adding she plans to contact a handful of business people to solicit opinions about the proposed restrictions. In the past, two businesses have expressed interest locating on the parcel, including a liquid-natural gas facility and a boat builder. Without the committee in place, the businesses were forced to address multiple municipal officials and departments as well as the public. Tukey said changes suggested by the committee should make development easier on interested businesses by consolidating the process. There have already been two public forums about the Mitchell Field master plan to gather input. Tukey said a new draft of proposed changes should be complete by Jan. 1, 2011, after which there will be another public hearing before Town Meeting.
