Contractor vanishes with nearly $6K from Brunswick schools By Dylan Martin BRUNSWICK — The School Department is out more than $5,600 after the company it hired to manage substitute teachers apparently disappeared. Superintendent of Schools Paul Perzanoski on Wednesday

said he has been unable to reach anyone at Syracuse, N.Y.-based Central Xchange, which provided an online service called Sub-IT to match schools with qualified substitute teachers. “Back in September ... they said ‘we’re having some prob-

lems, it’s going to take us a little while to fix it,” Perzanoski told the School Board. “... To make a long story short, after two weeks of trying to e-mail and call the company, we ended up calling the original number and it ended up being a car wash business in

Los Angeles.” A phone call Thursday morning to the number listed on Central Xchange’s website went to an automated message system for New England Car Wash Equipment, based in Acton, Mass.

Farmers, customers warm to historic freight shed By Alex Lear BATH — It’s a place steeped in history, with a clear view of the future. Bath’s last 19th century waterfront freight shed, recently given new life by the Bath Freight Shed Alliance, is the construction site of the Virginia, a replica of a historic pinnace built not far away at the Popham colony in 1607-1608. And it is now home to the Bath Winter Farmers Market. The market, formerly housed at the United Church of Christ on Congress Avenue, opened at the Commercial Street freight shed Nov. 3. It runs Saturdays through April from 9 a.m. to noon. Each Saturday a different community group will be showcased at the shed, along with the market. A Kickstarter website campaign to rewire and winterize the building was launched Feb. 22 with a goal of moving the market by Nov. 1; the campaign gained 237 backers and reached its $18,000

Invasive moths appear on schedule in Harpswell By Dylan Martin HARPSWELL — Winter moths are out, and local organizers want residents to be prepared.

should use a preventative technique on trees known as banding, in which tape is wrapped around a tree to prevent the female winter moths from laying eggs. McIntyre said his organization and the Harpswell Garden Club have been holding informational sessions with the town at the

By Dylan Martin BRUNSWICK — The Town Council will vote Nov. 19 on whether to use $174,500 for school construction and renovations the School Board believes is of “considerable importance.” If approved, the funds will come from the municipal budget and not the School Department. Town and school officials said doing so will save Brunswick time and money. During the council’s Nov. 5 meeting, School Board member Rich Ellis said the amount taken from the municipal budget will help fund the second phase of the School Department’s Master Facilities Plan, which will be created by PDT Architects in Portland. Based on an assessment from the plan’s first phase, Ellis said, the board is seeking renovations and upgrades for Coffin Elementary School and Brunswick Junior High School. “The primary infrastructure concerns we hope to address include the capacity bottleneck that we’re experiencing with our K-5 classrooms and the structural deficiencies and general upkeep of our junior high facility,” Ellis said. “Both of these projects are of critical importance to the town’s infrastructure.” He said the 2011 closure of Jordan Acres Elementary School, which had up to 600 stu-

Bath-area 7th-graders plant an orchard for the future By Alex Lear BATH — As Hannah Walker and Emeilia Marsh were planting their pear tree behind Bath Middle School last week, one of their concerns was what to name it. The seventh-graders, excited to be out in the sun, were helping to plant a 42-tree orchard as part of the Apple Classroom for Outdoor Research and Education project, or CORE. The initiative branches from Regional School Unit 1's Leading Our Community in Agricultural Learning garden. LOCAL serves all the school district's students at the corner of High and Lamont streets. "Last year we serviced over 700 kids who visited the garden, and we taught them basic (organic) agricultural practices," Laurie Burhoe, a master gardener who is co-director of the LOCAL garden, said at the Nov. 9 planting. She is working with city arborist Tom Hoerth and a seventh-grade science and humanities team at the middle school to plant the orchard. That orchard will be used by the students throughout their middle school years as an outdoor laboratory and classroom, as they guide the project from planting to harvesting. Once they leave the middle school, a new group of seventh-graders will become stewards of the orchard. Knowing where your food comes from is one benefit to this expeditionary learning exercise, Hoerth said. "And also understanding that you can grow it, doing things as a group and hav-

They will also use a weather station built by a middle school technical education class. The project's produce will go to school cafeterias and promote healthy food and sustainability. "I'm excited to be out here because I like trees and fruit," Marsh said. "So I'm glad we get to always be remembered as the seventh graders that started the apple orchard." When she and Walker were searching for a name, they decided the tree was a girl, "because all trees are girls," Marsh said. They ultimately settled on Piper. Piper the Pear Tree.

ing it last a long period of time," Burhoe said. "These kids are going to have to be patient. They're not going to have fruit tomorrow. But they're going to see that you put a tree in the ground, and it grows, and it goes somewhere. And they're going to pass it on to other kids." She added that "they're going to come here with their kids, pick an apple, and say 'I planted this tree.'" The 70 students will maintain every aspect of the orchard – which will grow apples, pears, plums and persimmons – throughout the seasons, and monitor quality of fruit, spring frosts and pest management, according to Burhoe.

News briefs Mid-Coast United Way $40K short of $2M goal BATH — United Way of Mid Coast Maine has reached 98 percent of its $1.96 million fundraising goal, the organization announced. The annual campaign raised nearly $1.93 million. “Let’s celebrate all the great results that have been achieved to date, and commit ourselves to raising that final 2 percent,” campaign Chairman and Bath Police Chief Mike Field said at the Nov. 7 campaign

finale, according to a United Way news release. Less than $40,000 must be raised in new or increased donations by year’s end to reach the goal. “I especially want to reach out to companies and individuals who have not given in recent years,” Field said. “Our community needs you. Please be a part of this community drive to help our friends and neighbors.” United Way and its 40 local partner agencies aided about 20,000 Mid Coast residents last year.

Recount held in Bath City Council election BATH — A recount of votes in the City Council Ward 7 election was expected to be concluded Thursday morning, Nov. 15, after The Forecaster went to press. Cal Stilphen, who trailed winner Leverett Mitchell by six votes on Election Day, said

Wednesday that he requested the recount. “I think I owe it to (his supporters),” Stilphen said. “The vote was close enough that we should take another look just to make sure it was right.” Mitchell received 232 votes for the one-year term, followed by Stilphen with 226 and Larry Scott with 218. They ran to fill a vacancy left by the Sept. 28 death of Councilor Ruthe Pagurko, who had served two years of a three-year term. The recount was scheduled to begin at Bath City Hall at 8:30 a.m. and was not expected to be completed before 10:30 a.m.

Negotiations end for proposed Harpswell aquaculture center By Dylan Martin HARPSWELL — The town has ended negotiations for a proposed aquaculture facility at Mitchell Field after the Board of Selectmen could not reach an agreement with the project’s organizers. Town officials and selectmen had been negotiating for the proposed Harpswell Oceanic Center at Mitchell Field with the project’s board and its commercial affiliate, RAS Corp., since June 2011. HOC’s bid for a lease began after the town passed an ordnance in March 2011 to allow the Board of Selectmen to sign multi-year leases for the area without approval from the annual Town Meeting. Prior to the board’s 3-0 vote Nov. 1 to discontinue the negotiations, Selectman Jim Henderson read a statement citing concerns about the nature of the lease and the impact it could have on the town. The town determined the lease would not be in Harpswell’s best interest, Henderson said, because it could force the town to make loan payments or surrender the property to creditors if HOC defaulted. Henderson said the terms would also not hold HOC accountable for “any misrepresentations, fraud, or environmental programs that may arise for its business, since HOC, unlike well-established businesses, has virtually no corporate assets.” “Therefore, the town concludes that at this time, because HOC is unable to agree to the non-negotiable items as listed above, there is no basis on which to continue negotiations and no further negotiations are currently planned,” he said. Also at the Nov. 1 meeting, HOC Presi-

Harpswell approves conservation closure of Quahog Bay HARPSWELL — The Board of Selectmen unanimously approved the conservation closure of Quahog Bay at its Nov. 1 meeting. The action was recommended by the Marine Resources Committee. It will close Quahog Bay Sunday through Wednesday between Oct. 1 and May 31 every year until the committee makes a recommendation to do otherwise. David Wilson, chairman of the Marine Resources Committee, said he pushed for the measure to help restore Comment on this story at:

dent Joanne Rogers read a prepared statement expressing disappointment with the failed negotiations and the importance of securing a site for the facility. “We are very disappointed that we have not yet been able to come to an agreement on these terms and do not have a lease that would allow our activities to move forward here in Harpswell,” Rogers said. The Harpswell Oceanic Center was being planned as a nonprofit aquaculture, education and research facility, she said. Rogers said HOC could not reach an agreement with the town in “three critical areas: land value/rent for the Mitchell Field Marine Business District, viability of the business and lease provisions that are generally commercially acceptable.”

the plummeting clam population in the bay. However, he said he’s unsure if it will have much of an impact, because environmental factors like the rising prominence of disease in clams – and not just over-harvesting – could be one of the main reasons for the population’s decline. Wilson said there could be conservation closures for two other bays in the future for similar reasons. Selectmen Elinor Multer and Alison Hawkes said it will be important to Allen Shaver, an HOC board member and adviser for RAS Corp., said Monday the town wasn’t sure about the aquaculture facility’s viability. “I think what existed here is a real lack of confidence for what we were going to do,” Shaver said. He said the HOC board had set several

Obama has ‘radicalized’ the nation Frank misses the point about Citizens United Most people have enough common sense to reject the ideas that corporations are people, and that money is speech, through deductive reasoning. Yet these concepts have been codified into law by our Supreme Court in the oligarchical “Citizens United” ruling. Halsey Frank’s recent column extolling the supposed logic of this ruling left out several vital considerations, one of which is that freedom of speech is but one of our rights. Another is freedom of association, including freedom of disassociation. It is obvious by now that the court’s contentions that this ruling would include disclosure, and that groups engaged in political advertising would not be allowed contact with candidates running for office, were naive.

co-parenting education and support for separated parents continuing education for professionals working with separating families

Justice Kennedy insisted that disclosure would be part and parcel of Citizens United. Enforcement is nonexistent; the corporate perpetrators are hiding behind loopholes, and faceless layers of cowardliness. If my letter is printed, my name will be included, and verified, but billionaire corporate entities, that may be based in foreign countries that do not have our best interests at heart, are allowed to hide their identities behind Citizens United. I want to be allowed my right to dissociate myself from any products or services sold, that enable corporations to pay for their free speech right to propagandize. But I can’t find out who is doing the propagandizing, specifically because of Citizens United, and that, Halsey Frank, is my case against it. John A. Dow Falmouth

a neutral place for kids to express their feelings and better understand the changes in their families

In Maine, Nov. 6 was a good day for blue and identity politics, but said nothing about our big national issues of war versus peace, Wall Street versus Main Street, constitutional rights versus restrictions, democracy versus oligarchy. It said nothing because nothing was said by either candidate for president or by the media. On Nov. 4, 2008, Barack Obama offered the nation “real change” from the policies of George Bush. Once elected, the president continued and expanded “endless war,” endless Gitmo, endless violations of civil liberties, endless bail-outs to banks, further enriched billionaires, and placed on the alter for slaughter Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and entitlements. The Dems/Libs/Progs long-ago abandoned their antiBush positions to blindly support the very same policies and actions by President Obama. Hypocrisy. Had Barack Obama been George W. Bush, he would have been impeached. Instead, the president radicalized the entire nation to the right. Michael T. Bucci Damariscotta

Lawmakers must ignore party ideology Now that the elections are over, it is my hope that our newly elected and re-elected state and federal representatives will waste no time in focusing on the issues of concern to older Mainers and their families. Issues such as financial and health security are of paramount importance to many of our older residents. The next Congress will be making decisions about the future of Social Security and Medicare. There are many options likely to be considered in 2013 that will have an effect on the long-term solvency of both of these programs. Now the work truly begins and I am looking forward to hearing how campaign promises will turn into meaningful action. Here in Maine, the 126th Legislature will need to find ways to balance the state budget without cutting programs that are so important to some of our most at-risk residents. As we head into the coldest months of the year, the challenges for older Mainers will undoubtedly grow. We need to protect our long-term care services and supports and strengthen consumer protections so Mainers can stay in their own homes and communities as they age. I hope our representatives will reach across the aisle and work together to find solutions that make sense now and for the future. I encourage all Mainers to play an active role in watching how things unfold in the months and years ahead and making sure their voices are heard throughout.

Beem ignores ‘nincompoops’ who toe the party line As I read Edgar Allen Beem’s column of Nov. 7, I found myself both irritated and disappointed. While I was bothered by the “where is he going with this?” style ranting about early voting, my real problem with Mr. Beem’s piece is when he goes on to call “undecided” voters “ignorant” and “uninformed” for not having chosen between Obama and Romney. How “ignorant or uninformed” is Mr. Beem that he doesn’t realize there were quite a few more choices than “Obama or Romney” to be made? Mr. Beem makes a sound point, however, when he writes that “the differences between (Obama and Romney) are not subtle.” In fact, besides their stances on a few talking-point issues, their differences are non-existent. Like Jim Lehrer, many of us found ourselves asking, “is there a difference between the two of you?” Is there any surprise that a number of people remained “undecided?” Mr. Beem gets one thing right: “the fate of this nation is now decided by nincompoops.” The “nincompoops” who we repeatedly send to Washington to fail to represent us, and the “nincompoops” like

Mr. Beem who continue to proudly sound the battle cry of their chosen party as they charge over the cliff, dragging the entire country with them. Jordan Ossie Portland

Election 2012 produced some unexpected results This was my son BobThe View by’s first presidential election. The first time I voted for president, Richard Nixon soundly trounced the recently deceased George McGovern. By that I mean McGovern passed away recently, not shortly before running for president, although he could hardly have done worse if he had been dead. Ironically, McGovern, so humiliated in the election, saw his reputation as a public servant grow Mike Langworthy over the years, while the triumphant Nixon’s fall from grace would have given Felix Baumgartner a run for his money. Was this election as engaging for Bobby and his contemporaries? It’s apples and oranges in some ways.

From Away

The culture was so different back then. We weren’t in the grip of a 24-hour news cycle. The Internet hadn’t turned every idiot with a computer into a potential pundit. The media had only begun the process of monetizing controversy at the expense of journalistic integrity. Party hacks were tentatively dipping their toes into the ooze of dirty tricks that have since become a fixture of political campaigns. Not that everything was different in 1972. We were deeply divided over seemingly irreconcilable visions of the future. The incumbent president was in the process of extricating us from an expensive, unwinnable war without making the country look weak. The challenger made a number of public relations gaffes early that severely damaged his credibility. Bob exercised the franchise differently than I did all those years ago. He used an absentee ballot, which may be the wave of the future. My wife took similar advantage of early voting, even though she goes to our polling place, Scarborough High School, every day as a classroom volunteer. Taking a ballot home allowed her to study the candidates and get on the record early in an

election that meant a lot to her. I’m not saying I took this election less seriously, but I did not vote early because I prefer to vote the American Way. I flip through the election materials while I’m standing in line and then go with the answer that “feels right” when I’m standing in the booth. Don’t judge me. This country was built by people who had no idea what they were getting themselves into. Bobby’s absentee voting was the price of attending a great school for him. He’s in Chicago because when he was applying for college, we encouraged him to find the best fit regardless of location, in much the same way my parents encouraged me, with a couple of wrinkles: I could apply to as many schools as I wanted, as long as one of them was the University of Michigan, and I could go to the school that was the best fit for me, as long as it was named the University of Michigan.

The View From Away from previous page never became necessary. Another thing Bob did differently: asking his parents’ opinions. If there were people in my age group in 1972 that asked their parents what they thought of, well, anything, I did not travel in those circles. As baby boomers, we were far too busy telling our parents that everything they knew was wrong, saying “the streets belong to the people, man,” and asking them for more money. Never to inquire how they were voting and why. Bobby, on the other hand, wanted to know how we viewed the three-way race for the U.S. Senate, and if we thought Scarborough really needed a new fire truck. I have no idea how he ended up voting. Maybe my generation has raised overly dependent children the way my parents raised rebellious ones. It felt good to be asked what we thought, though, as if we must have done something well as parents to have a teenage child who occasionally cares what we think. Another thing or two occurred to me about the election. On Wednesday, Bobby texted us to say he was pretty proud of America right about then. I’m sure he meant it in a partisan way, but my reaction when I read it was not about winners and losers. My pride, and I was pretty proud myself, was about the system we have and the energy so many people put into this election. It’s still early, people are still in the gloating and pouting stage, which is to be expected, if not welcomed. What impressed me about the election, as chaotic and ugly as it seemed at times, was how many people were actively engaged. There are a lot of smart and caring people in this country. It is easy to forget that when we put on our daily blinders. If this election served no other purpose, it showed how many people who, regardless of political affiliation, care enough about this country’s welfare to get involved. I’m grateful that my son got to feel that during his first election. With luck, it will inform his commitment to the process in the future. So, if you were out stumping for Mitt Romney, thank you. If you campaigned for President Obama, thank you. If you were on a phone bank for a candidate, thank you. If you volunteered to help run a polling place, thank you. If you were manning a table for a greener Maine, or to raise money for an organization, thank you. Finally, even though I hated every one of them, if you were one of the people who put signs on every conceivable square foot of roadside, thank you. Thank you even more for getting rid of them, but thank you for taking part in the process. You were helping to show the best of us.

The biggest loser When I went to bed on Election Day I was bummed out because, despite the fact that President Obama and marriage equality had prevailed, I was under the impression that state Sen. Dick Woodbury had been unseated by a former Navy SEAL with the backing of tens of thousands of dollars of out of state money. I woke up Wednesday morning to discover that the Yarmouth vote had not come in when I went to bed. When Yarmouth was counted, we carried Woodbury over the top to victory.

The Universal


For the first time in my life, I won the Election Day lottery – everyone and everything I voted for won. Though other votes had more wide-ranging Edgar Allen Beem implications, I was most happy that my fellow District 11 voters had understood that there was no reason not to re-elect Dick Woodbury. Challenger Chris Tyll waged an energetic and expensive campaign, plastering the area with his plywood signs and even getting U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe to do a voice-over for him. I guess that’s what galled me most. Snowe claims she is leaving the U.S. Senate because of partisan gridlock and says she plans to support candidates who will work in a bipartisan way to solve problems. But that, Sen. Snowe, is Dick Woodbury. The local pundits had expected the insurgent Tyll to upset the incumbent Woodbury, but Tyll was not the biggest loser on Nov. 6. Charlie Summers would be a contender for that title, losing his fourth campaign for statewide office. It should be pretty clear to Summers at this point that Maine people don’t want him representing them in Washington. Summers will also lose

his job as secretary of state now that Democrats have retaken control of both houses of the Legislature. In terms of historic relevance, the biggest losers last Tuesday were the religious self-righteous who opposed gay marriage. Now that Maine has become the first state in the nation to embrace gay marriage by popular referendum, history will understand anti-gay Christians as opponents of civil rights. In terms of sheer dollars wasted, the biggest losers were the nefarious Republican Super PACs and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which spent millions of dollars on the U.S. Senate race trying to defeat Angus King. I assume heads will roll at the U.S. Chamber unless their corporate donors are as stupid as their policy advisers. The title of Biggest Loser 2012, however, goes to Gov. Paul LePage. This election was a referendum on his two years of loud-mouthed leadership. Mainers put Democrats back in charge because we are sick and tired of LePage, his my-way-orthe-highway style and his blame-the-victim public policy agenda. Not only will LePage now have to contend with a Legislature controlled by the very Democrats he insulted, he will also lose his conservative allies in the constitutional offices. Summers will be out as secretary of state, Bruce Poliquin will be sent packing as treasurer and William Schneider will be dumped as attorney general. Since there is no chance LePage will be re-elected in 2014, if he plans to accomplish anything at all while still in office he is going to have to wake up to the fact that governing is the art of compromise. It is a collaborative endeavor, not a cage fight. If Paul LePage is smart, and there has been precious little evidence of that to date, he will take his own advice and start kissing some butt.

Bowdoin’s fall season ends Bowdoin’s fall sports season came to an end last weekend when field hockey, no stranger to playing into November, was eliminated in the third round of the NCAA Division III tournament. The Polar Bears missed out on the Final Four for just the second time in eight seasons, falling to Tufts, 2-1. Bowdoin, which beat New Paltz State (6-1) and MIT (3-1) in previous playoff rounds, took a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute when Lauren Schroeder scored. That score remained until the second half, when Tufts scored twice on penalty corners, ending the Polar Bears’ season at 16-4. The field hockey team had several players named to the NESCAC all-star team. Brooke Phinney was named the Defensive Player of the Year and Rachel Kennedy was tabbed as the conference’s Rookie of the Year. Cathleen Smith and Katie Riley joined Phinney on the First Team. Kassey Matoin and Kayla Lessard made the Second Team. In other athletic news, the Bowdoin football team finished with a 17-0 loss to Colby last weekend to wind up 1-7. The women’s volleyball team made it to the third round of the NCAA tournament before dropping a 3-2 (14-25, 25-18, 22-25,

Out & About

Oratorio Chorale opens its season By Scott Andrews By mid-November, nearly every performing arts organization in southern Maine has opened its fall-winter-spring season. One of the last to start is the MidCoast-based Oratorio Chorale, which has a pair of concerts coming up Saturday and Sunday in Topsham and Yarmouth. Music director Peter Frewen has selected works by Franz Schubert and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Portland Symphony Orchestra will again play under the baton of a guest conductor this Sunday. The visiting maestro will be Timothy Myers, who normally helms the North Carolina Opera. Another visiting artist will be longtime Canadian Brass hornist Jeff Nelsen. Veteran bluesman John Hammond will visit Portland’s One Longfellow Square on Saturday. Hammond will be appearing a few days past his 70th birthday celebration, but more importantly, this year he’s celebrating his 50th year as a professional musician.

Westbrook.) Catch John Hammond at One Longfellow Square, corner of State and Congress in Portland, at 8 p.m. Nov. 17. Call 761-1757.

Portland Symphony Orchestra

Oratorio Chorale The Oratorio Chorale opens its 39th season this weekend with performances in Topsham and Yarmouth, accompanied by instrumentalists from the Maine Chamber Ensemble. The Oratorio Chorale is an independent auditioned ensemble numbering between 35 and 40 singers that has been prominent in the Mid-Coast and southern Maine since 1974. Their repertoire ranges from Baroque to contemporary, and they produce their own three-concert season and frequently collaborate with orchestras and other musical entities. Music director Peter Frewen, who has led the group since 1975, has selected a program featuring pieces by Franz Schubert and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart that illustrate the combined effects of colors of sound and passionate expression. Schubert’s Mass in E Flat was written in 1828, only a year before the composer’s death, and Frewen notes its enormous range. Frewen comments that the work is characterized by “large shapes of sound, achieving powerful, intense climaxes and satisfying every discerning aesthetic and emotive response.” Three smaller works by Mozart round out the program. “Sanctus Maria” and “Misericordia Domini” reflect the Latin tradition of the Catholic Church, while “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” is one of Mozart’s best-known short instrumental essays. This concert will be performed twice this weekend: at Orion Performing Arts Center (Mt. Ararat Middle School) in Topsham at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17 and Sacred Heart Church in Yarmouth at 3 p.m.

Veteran bluesman John Hammond will be appearing at One Longfellow Square in Portland on Saturday, Nov. 17. This year marks Hammond’s 50th anniversary as a professional musician.

Nov. 18. Call 798-7985.

John Hammond John Hammond, a veteran bluesman who is celebrating a pair of life’s landmarks in 2012, will be the featured artist this Saturday at One Longfellow Square. Landmarks of life? For starters, Hammond turned 70 years old on Tuesday. But more significantly, 2012 marks a half-century as a professional musician. Also this year Hammond was inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame, an honor which follows last year’s National Blues Hall of Fame. Born in New York City into a musical family, Hammond started playing guitar and singing in high school. By 1962 – not yet 20 years old – he was living in Greenwich Village, playing for paychecks and hanging out and performing with some of the leading lights of that formative and profoundly influential musical scene: Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Duane Allman. Hammond formed his own group, and for a brief period in the 1960s, both Clapton and Hendrix were band mates.

Although Hammond never enjoyed the immense popular fame achieved by some of his musical confederates, he has persisted in his art. Among his achievement are 33 albums, which stretch from the days of the 33 rpm LP vinyl record into today’s digital download era. Hammond show no signs of slowing down: Seven of his albums date from after 2000 and the most recent, “Rough & Tough,” was released three years ago. It garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album. Hammond plays a National ResoPhonic guitar, which was designed for blues guitarists in the 1930s. It is characterized by a metallic cone that projects and naturally amplifies the sound. Strings are plucked with finger picks and the frequencies (notes) are defined by sliding a steel cylinder across the neck, rather than by pressing the strings against frets. (Purely by happenstance, this week marks the second consecutive Maine performance by an artist whose specialty is the acoustic resonator guitar. On Saturday, Jerry Douglas performed in

Two visiting artists headline this Sunday’s Portland Symphony Orchestra concert, which features major works by Richard Strauss and Igor Stravinsky. On the podium, guest maestro Timothy Myers will conduct the orchestra. Myers, who helms North Carolina Opera, is a friend and associate of PSO music director Robert Moody, who is a native Carolinian and also leads a symphony in Winston-Salem. Myers is known as a technically precise conductor who also enjoys a rapidly growing reputation as one of the youngest American maestros to emerge upon the national music scene. The second guest will be virtuoso Jeff Nelsen, who will do the solo honors in Strauss’ Horn Concerto No. 1. For more than two decades Nelsen has forged a career in both symphonic and popular settings. He is best known as the hornist with the Canadian Brass, but he’s also had solo engagements with major symphony orchestras across his native land and the U.S. On the popular side, he’s played in the pit for two Broadway shows. The first two pieces on the program are by Carl Maria von Weber and Claude Debussy. The former was the quintessential German Romantic artist, while the latter was the epitome of French musical impressionism – a term that the composer himself detested. The Strauss concerto, which dates from 1883, follows. PSO program annotator Mark Rohr notes that the concerto was written by the son of a virtuoso horn player, commenting that “Richard Strauss’ works show both a love for the instrument and a canny awareness of its capabilities.” The second half of the concert will be devoted to a single major 20th-century work, the orchestral suite from Stravinsky’s “The Firebird,” a landmark ballet that was introduced in Paris in 1910. The suite, which was assembled and premiered 35 years after the ballet score, is Stravinsky’s most popular symphonic work. Its brash colors and dynamic rhythms are both challenging and pleasing, and the finale is particularly well loved. “The celebrated closing pages are some of the most thrilling music ever written,” explains Rohr. Catch the Portland Symphony Orchestra at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 18. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Mr. Phil Hall, Manager

November 16, 2012

Farmers market

Comment on this story at:

from page 1 Project Award went to the alliance. The alliance includes arts groups, the Bath Farmers Market, Maine’s First Ship, Regional School Unit 1, the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust and Main Street Bath. Robin Chase, president of the farmers market and owner of Whitefield-based Chase Farms, praised its new location.

The first Saturday aligned with the “early bird” sale held annually by Bath stores, and since the crowds were downtown, the shed was right in the neighborhood. Chase said she was pleased to find that the second week was “a great market,” with a boost in sales compared to the previous year, thanks to the new location. “So much work went into this place,” she said. “I’m just so impressed with the

Brunswick schools from page 1 office several years ago. “They’ve been gone for quite a while,” Gloria Allain said. She did not know where Central Xchange went. Officials at other school departments that have used Central Xchange’s SubIT program, as listed on the company’s website, were not available for comment. Kevin Burns, a Nottingham High School vice principal whose testimonial is quoted on the Central Xchange website, is no longer employed at that Syracuse school. Perzanoski said he presumed the company is out of business, so the department interviewed three other companies and has hired a new service to manage substitutes. The department ended up with CRS Adanced Technology of Montoursville, Pa., which provides a substitute teacher management program called SubFinder. Perzanoski said the department has already paid CRS nearly $4,600 for start-up fees, and it would pay a total of $9,800 for the first school year. The


annual fee following that would then be $5,800. The service will take a few weeks to start, Perzanoski said. In the meantime, teachers and administrators are picking up the slack for calling substitutes. Perzanoski on Wednesday told the School Board that Central Xchange had been paid about $4,000 for the current school year. In an interview Thursday he revised the cost to more than $5,600. He said this was the fifth year the department had worked with the company. “We haven’t had a problem with them until now,” Perzanoski said. Board Member Matt Corey on Wednesday asked if it would be worthwhile for the School Department to seek legal action against Central Xchange. “I’m still looking for them,” Perzanoski replied. In other business: • Business Manager Jim Oikle said the School Department has passed its annual budget audit. Oikle said the 2012-2013 school budget surplus is around $2.4 million right now, and that will carry over into the next fiscal year.

amount of community support we got for this.” Replacement of a 170-foot-long sill on the water side of the building was a major project that started the summer of 2010. “As soon as we raise money, we put it directly into the building,” Theodore said on Monday. “We have had no overhead. Basically it’s been a very direct process, partly because of ... the volunteer effort.” Improvements to the roof, which occurred this summer, was another big endeavor. When Theodore & Theodore

was based in the nearby Customs House, “we could look down on the roof of the freight shed, and we could see holes in it,” she said. “And clearly if there wasn’t going to be a new roof on it, the building was not going to survive much longer.” The alliance’s next major undertaking will be restoration of the shed’s exterior, which would compliment a planned sidewalk project along Commercial Street.

by Athletic Director Gene Keene, who said PEL Industries has signed similar deals with schools across the country. According to a letter from PEL, the contract would be a non-exclusive license that would return eight percent of all merchandise revenue to the school. The School Board would only have to agree to the contract for manufacturing to begin. The manufacturer would then distribute the apparel at the Wal-Mart on Tibbetts Drive. Board Member Rich Ellis wondered if the sales would have a negative impact on students who sell their own goods for fundraisers. Board Vice Chairwoman Corinne Perreault said she supports the idea because now only student athletes have access to school-themed apparel. The board voted unanimously to look further into the contract, with Councilor Michele Joyce absent.

Board Chairman Jim Grant asked Oikle to clarify why that will happen based on a question from the public. “Someone came out and said ‘they have $2.4 million, why aren’t they doing anything with it?’” Oikle said. “Well, we didn’t know we had $2.4 million for real until (the auditors) were done with it.” “That (amount) now is available for the board to apply the amount to the next budget that we writek” he continued. “It would be futile to try and go back and amend this year’s budget, because really, we would be doing nothing. The tax rates have already been set. It would just be moving it from one pot of money in the town to another pot of money in the town.” • Brunswick Dragons hoodies for sale at the local Wal-Mart may soon become a possibility if the School Board agrees to license the high school’s name and logo to an Arkansas-based wholesale manufacturer for apparel sales.

The town also has information available on its website. Entomologists from state and federal departments and universities will be researching the winter moth population in Harpswell, along with aiding in efforts to combat it. State entomologist Charlene Donahue said in September the town won’t be able to fully exterminate the species, but it can make a considerable dent in the population over the next few years. “The winter moth won’t go away. It’s here,” she said. “This will just create an equilibrium so the impact is not as bad.” Dylan Martin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or Follow him on Twitter: @ DylanLJMartin.

Brunswick Council from page 1 dents in its peak years, has exacerbated the capacity situation. “In our current configuration, we’re currently using every mobile unit at our disposal,” Ellis said, “and we have compromised special education space at Harriet Beecher Stowe (Elementary School) to make our current K-5 population work. Obviously these solutions are not sustainable in the long term and potentially not in the short term.” And the assessment found that reopening Jordan Acres would prove too costly when weighing all of the options. Superintendent of Schools Paul Perzanoski said it would cost the town $2.6

million to fix structural problems at Jordan Acres and an additional $800,000 per year for staff and operating costs. As for Brunswick Junior High School, Ellis said there are several problems that need to be addressed, including rotting wood, floors that have sunk by six inches in one area, recurrent water problems and other safety issues. If the facilities plan goes forward, Perzanoski said, people can expect to vote on a bond for facilities upgrades and renovations next spring. Construction and renovations could start as early as summer 2013 and would take around two years to complete, he said. Perzanoski said work will begin on Coffin School first because of the town’s capacity problem in kindergarten through fifth grade. He said the school wouldn’t be able to handle an unexpected influx of new students. While the plan’s public hearing produced no critics or supporters, Councilor Benet Pols said he received three e-mails criticizing the town’s use of money for the project. In a e-mail forwarded to town councilors and Town Manager Gary Brown, resident Jean Powers said the proposal to spend $174,500 is “fleecing taxpayers again.” She asked why the town is looking to use funds from the municipal budget and not the school budget, when the schools have more than a $2 million surplus. “It should be denied as they don’t need it,” Powers said. Brown explained that taking funds from the municipal budget, instead of the schools’, will actually save money. If the funds were appropriated from the school budget, he said, it would have had to go

to referendum, which would have cost the town an additional several thousand dollars. In addition, Brown said leftover funds from the school budget will lapse to next year’s budget to reduce the impact on taxpayers. “By amending the municipal budget, we can avoid the referendum and it saves the town some money,” Brown said, “and it gets this project underway with some level of certainty. ... It’s just a lot simpler, a lot cleaner. “ The town manager also said the council initially appropriated $200,000 in July 2011 for the Master Facilities Plan, but nearly $69,000 of those funds went back to the municipal budget earlier this year because there was no contract in place for the second phase. Brown said any leftover funds from the plan’s second phase will lapse to the municipal budget in the same manner. Responding to questions from a few councilors, Perzanoski said PDT Architects was the only contractor to make a bid for this phase of the Master Facilities Plan. In addition, he said, because the contractor’s bid didn’t come until late spring, the town wasn’t able to add the second phase’s cost to the 2012-2013 budget when it was finalized in May.

stipulation HOC could not accept. “You will never accept money from private investors (with a fee like that),” Shaver said. Instead, he said, HOC was willing to give a percentage of its gross revenue to the town, although the amount would be lower than what RAS would have been required to give. The town would have also required approval of any ownership transfers for sub-lessees of HOC, Shaver said, an unusual requirement for a lease agreement like this. In addition, the HOC board member said the town’s expectation for the HOC board to offer personal guarantees on any debts was unrealistic, because the board consists entirely of volunteers. The personal guarantees would have allowed a creditor to lay claim on the guarantors’ assets if HOC defaulted, he said. “We’re volunteers. We’re just creating something for the town,” he said. “It’s not customary in commercial arrangements.” For now, Shaver said any HOC development will have to wait while the board looks for other property. “Our view is that RAS Corp. will go establish business somewhere else,” Shaver said, “and HOC is being put on hold.” Dylan Martin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or Follow him on Twitter: @ DylanLJMartin.

“I’ve been coming to Parkview for over 20 years. Parkview saved my husband’s life, twice. If we had had to drive farther to get to another hospital, he wouldn’t have made it. Everyone I’ve encountered at Parkview, from the cleaners to the doctors, they care about you.” “The population is changing very fast. There are a lot more older people around here. There are going to be more people needing care. Why would you shrink the number of hospitals around here? We are going to need more care. And I also firmly believe that we need to keep two hospitals so we have a choice. My choice is Parkview.” ~ Marjorie Stanley, Grateful Parkview Patient

He was quickly recruited to the board and currently serves as chairman of the organization dedicated, he said, “to providing quality mental health care at the least cost possible.” Mary Jane Krebs, chief executive officer of the center, said “David is fabulous. He has brought real professionalism and insights to the board. He has a great head, a great heart, and he’s always willing to help. I trust him implicitly.” For some people, major responsibility on just one nonprofit board would suffice. But Smith is not “some people.” He discovered that the Southern Maine Agency on Aging was seeking volunteers to help people who were about to retire navigate the various decisions associated with going on Medicare. He went through the necessary training and soon was asked to lead monthly seminars on the subject. Smith leads five two-hour seminars a month, each attended by 12-18 people. And he joined the SMAA board. “It’s challenging and fun to help people understand a complex process,” Smith said. Eileen Whynot, communications director for the agency, said “David is a fabulous listener, and he thoughtfully answers questions, often staying at the end of seminars to answer questions. He keeps up-to-date in the ever-changing health insurance world, and he can often answer complex questions. If not, he’ll doggedly find explanations or answers and follow up with his ‘student.’ “David is also called upon to speak to community groups explaining the ABC’s of Medicare as a valued member of SMAA’s Medicare Team, devoting many hours of his time to accomplish this high-level work.” Mary Hadlock, Medicare Volunteer Coordinator of SMAA, shared Eileen’s deep appreciation and respect for Smith’s significant efforts: “Just today we got an e-mail about one of David’s seminars, which said, ‘Nice work shedding absolute clarity on one of the most complicated and intricate things we will do in life.’” As if these two major commitments weren’t enough, Smith has also found time to join the Rotary Club of Portland, an organization that he said “does very good work.” In just five short years, this man with a common name, but an uncommon dedication to service, has made an extraordinary impact on the lives of countless people in Portland and beyond.
