Falmouth weighs all-day K, axing some languages By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — More than 70 people attended a standingroom-only School Board workshop on Monday.

Private land could help address athletic field shortage By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — A school and community collaboration hopes to provide ample fields for youth, school and adult recreation and sporting groups. The 16-member Athletic and Recreational Advisory Committee has been working to develop a plan to create new fields at the middle and high school. At the same time, a group of four or five business owners started to look into developing a 37-acre parcel off Hunter Road to alleviate crowding on the school fields. David Latulippe of the Hunter Road group known as Freeport Fields and Trails said the land is owned by a family in Vermont, but could be purchased and developed by this summer. He said the additional fields would answer a community need and help alleviate overcrowding and overuse at the Freeport High School and middle school fields. “The land on Hunter Road is 37 acres and abuts 260 acres of town-owned land next to Hedgehog Mountain, the Pownal Road fields and the Seacoast United soccer fields,” Latulippe said. “We are looking to complement, not compete with the school group. We want to provide a service for the community.” The Hunter Road project would provide four new athletic fields for soccer, field hockey, lacrosse or rugby; three new See page 15

Many of them spoke against proposed budget cuts and in favor of new programs, including all-day kindergarten. The “Tier 2” cuts, which the

By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — Town Manager Nat Tupper presented a preliminary $10.7 million fiscal 2012 municipal budget to the Town Council on Feb. 3. T h e bu d g e t i n c l u d e s a $235,000, or 2.2 percent, increase in expenditures from the current year. Tupper said town revenues have decreased about 2 percent and the total tax base is also smaller. The estimated the $31.5 million total budget would increase the property tax rate 75 cents, or 3.77 percent, to $20.55 per $1,000 of assessed value. “There are no new programs and there is nothing eliminated. This budget shows nothing has changed,” Tupper said. “From this point, we need to see where we will take it.” The Operations Committee, a committee of the whole council, met Monday, Feb. 7, to begin budget deliberations. Councilors offered no alternative to help offset the tax increase. Councilor Carl Winslow said with declining town revenues, lack of construction projects and the decreasing value of Wyman See page 34

Tourism marketing firm has problems making payments By Amy Anderson PORTLAND — The state Department of Economic and Community Development is auditing a Portland advertising agency that has failed to pay cli-

suppliers and media companies. A DECD official expressed confidence that the situation would not hurt the state’s ongoing tourism publicity campaigns.

Swardlick, based at 7 Custom House St., was selected by the Office of Tourism to market the state in 2009 and 2010. It creSee page 35

Cumberland board approves CMP substation on Greely Road

from Greely Road and 600 feet from the nearest property line. The unfenced graded area will have two structures that will support two existing transmission lines.

Regional economic development board taking shape By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — A group created to market greater Portland as a place to do business is deciding who should serve on its first board of directors. The Greater Portland Economic Development Corp. includes Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth and Scarborough. In addition to municipal representation, the group also includes representatives from the education and business sectors. “We’re in the process of populating a board of directors,” said Godfrey Wood, president and CEO of the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce. Wood said the idea has been in the works for about two years. In the past few months member municipalities have signed on and founding members are writing by-laws and vetting potential board members. The board will include as many as 19 members. There will be six officials from represented municipalities; one chamber representative; two Southern Maine

Educational Alliance representatives, and up to 10 members representing different business sectors including life science, information technology, precision manufacturing and hospitality. “This is literally a public-private partnership and it needs to be to be respectable,” Wood said. “A goal is to brand our region,” Wood explained. He said part of that process includes letting businesses from outside Maine know what the region is looking for and what it has to offer. The board should come together in two to three months, and after that the corporation will get to work on how to fund itself. Some funding would eventually come from member municipalities, but initially funding will be sought from grants and other outside sources. The board’s initial charge will also include coming up with a marketing plan. Portland’s municipal designee for the board had not been announced as of Tuesday, but City Hall spokeswoman Nicole Clegg said she expects the city man-

said. “People can build on the skills they learned last year or take up something entirely new to them.” She said classes range from introduction to gardening and permaculture to chainsaw safety. For between $25 and $50, participants can learn about heirloom vegetables, composting, fermentation and energysaving tips. People can also pay for a portion of the class fee through work trade or barter services. “We are pushing the envelope in every sense,” Brownlee said. “We are offering innovative ideas and more practical continued page 27

hurricane, many of the buildings in the area are still not rebuilt. When the group got to Bay St. Louis on Jan. 16, the work really began. During the storm, the town was hit with a 38-foot wall of water that destroyed most of the homes and businesses in the area. The Falmouth students were working on building a Habitat for Humanity home for a woman and her daughter. “We were doing mostly carpentry,” said history teacher John Radke, who has chaperoned the trip all three years. All 10 students applied to participate in the trip and, Radke said, they all had to arrange to take their exams early, because the trip was during finals week. Radke said the group worked through the week to put the roof, windows and siding onto the home. He said the soon-to-be homeowner, Betty, was there during much of the building process, and was able to share her story of surviving the storm with the students. “She was amazing,” Sabo said. “She worked all night at the casino, then she’d come work on the house all day. And then she had to go pick up her daughter at school,” Radke said. The students also went to the Bay St. Louis Historical Society and saw photos of continued page 28

Propane heater blamed for Falmouth fire that destroyed 8 antique cars By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — Firefighters said a blaze that destroyed a three-bay garage and the antique cars parked inside was probably caused by a propane space heater. On Feb. 2 at 12:43 a.m., the Falmouth and Westbrook fire departments responded to a call from a homeowner reporting a glow coming from his garage on Balsam Lane. According to Falmouth Fire Chief Howard Rice, firefighters arrived 10 minutes after the call and the garage was completely engulfed in flames. The home, which was 75 feet away from the garage, was not badly damaged in the fire. “The fire was hot enough the picture

window on the house cracked,” Rice said. Because the closest fire hydrant was 3,000 feet away, firefighters initially used a 5,000-gallon water tank installed on the premises and two fire truck tanks until a water line to the hydrant on Brookside Drive could be established. “Within 10 minutes we’d used all the water in that tank and the two trucks,” Rice said. All eight cars in the garage were destroyed, including Model A and Model T Fords and a Jaguar, Rice said. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or eparkhurst@theforecaster.net

What struck this year’s students most was how much rebuilding there is still to do. “On the drive from the airport in New Orleans to Bay St. Louis, we could see everything that had been affected by the storm,” senior Jamie Sabo said. “There were homes that were broken down and abandoned.” Sabo said she and the other students were surprised that more than five years after the

Energy group funded via state agency hired Dem lawmakers, activists By Naomi Schalit HALLOWELL — The Maine Green Energy Alliance, which last week announced it was returning the balance of its $1.1 million government contract to promote home retrofits after it had fallen well behind its goals, says it is a non-partisan organization. But an examination of the Hallowellbased group by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting shows that of its 13-member staff, seven have or had strong connections to the Democratic Party, including being members of the Legislature. This finding comes a week after the center’s research revealed that the alliance got its grant with the help of Democratic Gov. John Baldacci and was founded by Baldacci’s former counsel, also a well-

Steve Butterfield, who was a Democratic House member representing Bangor and running for re-election when he was hired in August 2010 as a process facilitator. He was not re-elected. • Former Rep. Jim Martin, who was a Democratic House member representing Orono and running for re-election when he was hired as a process facilitator. He was not re-elected. • Shelby Wright, who was a Democratic candidate for the House from Hampden when she was hired in July 2010 to be a community outreach coordinator. She lost the election.

Valentine’s Day is not for sissies These are the days that try men’s souls. And women’s. I speak not of our nation’s No Sugar economic woes, nor of the mountains of snow threatening to collapse our roofs. No, ladies and gentlemen, I speak of the days leading up to Valentine’s Day. Having been single, married, widowed, and now single again, I can tell you one thing: Valentine’s Day may appear innocent, but it is an inherently evil holiday. With the exception of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, few dates on the calendar can Sandi Amorello strike fear into the hearts of otherwise rational people more than this, the day of love. During the frigid days of early February, who among us isn’t moved to tears (and possible nausea) by something as simple as a trip to CVS? The demonic little plush bears dyed an unnatural shade of red, their plastic hearts, filled with cheap candies. Who is the marketing genius who thought this a fitting gift to bestow upon the object of one’s affections?

I can hear it now: “Let’s see, Norma, what gift would land a lot of men in the dog house on Valentine’s Day? Ha ha. Ha.” Clearly, Norma was working for Satan. If you are single, the holiday announces one thing: a gaping void. I don’t care how happy you profess to be, how big your KitchenAid refrigerator, or how fulfilling your career – something is missing. And, it’s not the love of your mother, friends, or family. It’s romantic love. You wonder how it eludes you. Do you frequent the wrong grocery stores? Wear the wrong deodorant? WTH? If you are dating someone, the holiday signals some level of success. You are an insider. If you are in love with the person you are dating, there is also an unhealthy level of expectation. And trepidation. Will Valentine’s Day bring out his inner Cary Grant? Or his inner Soupy Sales? Secretly, you pray, “Please don’t give me one of those bears.” If you are not in love with the person you are dating, but perhaps just using them as a placeholder, or, let’s face it, for great sex, and they are not aware of this fact, then you are in grave danger of receiving an engagement ring or something that will make it a tragic day for all concerned. I have broken up with men in late January, simply because I was terrified at the gifts they may have bestowed upon me a few weeks later. Better to break someone’s heart on President’s Day than on Feb. 14. You want to do all you can to avoid ruining this magical “day of love” for anyone for all eternity. Be sensitive. Please. If you are married, the holiday signals opportunity. Either to reach back into the time machine and rekindle the flame of passion, or to realize you have made a grave error in the mate selection process. All of the commercials featuring glowing couples canoodling in diamond-filled jewelry stores can sometimes make divorce court look quite appealing. If you are divorced, the holiday can potentially inspire less-than-loving thoughts. I’m not divorced (I’d have to get

married again to have any chance of that happening), but if I were, I imagine I’d be eyeing those large bags of Lindt chocolate truffles and dreaming of ways to launch them through my former spouse’s bedroom window. Perhaps after I had filled them with some type of explosive. Harsh? Maybe. But being a child of divorce, I have some inkling regarding the often emotionally unpleasant aftermath. If you are widowed, the holiday brings up, well, despair. And weeping. Lots of weeping. Thankfully, as these past eight years have crawled by, I’ve been able to stop weeping and both reflect upon and cherish the sweet Valentine’s Days we shared. And to laugh over the ones that nearly propelled us toward marriage counseling. This year, my children and I are cooking a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. At home. I can barely contain my excitement. No threat of scary stuffed animals or engagement rings. So take a deep breath and do something you love on Valentine’s Day. With the people you love. Feb. 15 is only a heartbeat away. No Sugar Added is Cape Elizabeth resident Sandi Amorello’s biweekly take on life, love, death, dating and single parenting.

Gun rights don’t trump common sense

Written in 1791, back when the guns available included a flintlock rifle that could fire one bullet every minute if you were a quick reloader, the Second Amendment is often quoted when gun regulations are discussed. I am a hunter, and appreciate that the right to bear arms has its place in a democratic society. However, George Fogg’s citing of the Second Amendment in his letter last week doesn’t justify lambasting a balanced and thoughtful letter from Bob Roffler. By Fogg’s logic, I should be able to carry a nuclear weapon to the grocery store as a law-abiding, mentally stable citizen with no criminal record. To tone it down, should I be able to carry a Glock handgun with an excontinued next page

February 10, 2011 from previous page changeable clip that allows me to fire 33 bullets in a matter of seconds? Concealed handguns such as the Glock do little to make any of us safer. A person’s present mental stability doesn’t guarantee his or her future sanity. I always enjoy hearing Fogg’s comments at Town Meeting, but I disagree with him here. There exists a balanced policy which will allow the Second Amendment to persevere while doing away with anyone’s right to carry a weapon capable of mass, indiscriminate destruction.

Energy Alliance story a ‘cartoon’ The performance of the Maine Green Energy Alliance, and its effectiveness or ineffectiveness in helping Maine people winterize their homes, are topics worthy of scrutiny. The group’s track record is fair game for even the harshest objective analysis. I don’t feel the same way about character assassination by insinuation. I refer to the recent “expose” by Naomi Schalit of the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting. I was an eyewitness to how this all started. Several folks in the Biddeford-Saco area pressed vigorously for Tom Federle to be recruited to the Task Force To Close Maine Energy. Why? Because of his expertise and impeccable reputation for honesty. That task force met on an almost weekly basis in the summer of 2009, plowing their way through grueling meetings as they tried to help Casella Waste fulfill a contract pledge to work in good faith toward finding a way to close Maine Energy, a constant source of nuisances and an obstacle to economic redevelopment in downtown BiddefordSaco. It was hard work on hot summer evenings by many honest and dedicated public servants. None of that background or context made it into Schalit’s story. Instead, she picked up the story half way, taking fragments of an e-mail here or parts of a quote there, putting them together completely out of context. Without making any specific allegation, she insinuated motivations that just didn’t exist. I’m all for courageous investigative journalism, and Schalit has triumphed in that realm before. This piece fell short of that standard, however. It was a cartoon. Mark Robinson Biddeford

Conservatives must learn to conserve As he stumbles around the state in the early days of his administration, Gov. Paul LePage frequently gets worked up about out-of-state ownership of Maine’s prime lakefront and oceanfront property, complaining about the influx of people from Massachusetts and arguing that Maine land should belong to Maine people. Maybe that’s why the Guv thinks it would be such a fine idea to open 3 million acres of Maine’s unorganized territory to development. As with most things, our benighted governor is wrong. Had he proposed such The Universal a wholesale attack on the natural environment during his campaign, LePage would have been lucky to get elected dog catcher in Waterville. Not sure who he thinks is going to develop all that forest land, let alone who is going to purchase it, but it sure as heck isn’t going to be Maine people. When it comes to where the lines are Edgar Allen Beem drawn in America’s culture wars, some of the clearest demarcations are between the forces of conservation and those of development, between public land and private property. Ironically, conservatives like LePage are the enemies of conservation. Mainers have a strong conservation ethic that is at odds with the governor’s vision of the North Woods as a subdivision three times the size of Los Angeles. That’s why we overwhelmingly support Land for Maine’s Future bonds and why we should thank our lucky stars that there are people of means in Maine who understand the importance of preserving open space and public access. Posterity will never thank you for developing a vast tract of land, but it sure will for protecting it. Just imagine Mount Desert Island if Rockefeller hadn’t created Acadia National Park, Mt. Katahdin if Gov.

Baxter hadn’t created Baxter State Park. For that matter, imagine Scarborough Beach as condos-bythe-sea if the Sprague family hadn’t had the vision to preserve the beach and public access to it. We can only hope that cable TV baron John Malone has conservation rather than development in mind for the 900,000 acres of the North Woods that he just purchased. Add Malone’s woodland holdings to those of Roxanne Quimby, who buys whole townships to keep them from being developed, and you have the makings of something grand and glorious. You get the impression that LePage and his drinking buddies are so giddy with his surprise victory that they are just sitting around thinking up all the mischief they can do before the public catches on. “Hey, Paulie, let’s get rid of the frickin’ Bureau of Environmental Protection!” “Let’s dump LURC, too, while we’re at it.” “Screw vernal pools! Who gives a damn about frogs!” “Let’s allow skyscrapers on sand dunes!” “I’m sick of returnable bottles. Let’s throw the g-d bottle bill out, too.” “OK, boys, whatever you want. Just pass me another cold one!” If LePage wants to be remembered as anything other than a short-sighted tool of the tea party, he will have to start taking the long view. Rolling back decades of popular, bipartisan environmental protections may make LePage a hero to out-of-state developers like Plum Creek and a handful of local outlaws, but it will also ensure that, after he and they are dead and buried, history will remember him only as the governor who tried to sell the state of Maine down the river. I say “tried,” because I don’t believe for a minute that the people of Maine and their elected representatives are going just stand by and allow that to happen.

Obituaries

Katharine A. Speth, 93: Witty and entertaining, loved show tunes FREEPORT — Katharine Anne Speth, 93, died peacefully Jan. 6 at Hawthorne House in Freeport. Born Sept. 30, 1917, in Milwaukee, Wis., the daughter of Carl and Florence Speth, she and her family lived in Illinois until they moved to New York City when she was 7 years old. She was very close to her parents, and they enjoyed attending Broadway plays in New York, and trips to Cuba while her father worked with the Cuban American Sugar Company. After attending Marymount School she later graduated from Marymount College in Tarrytown, N.Y. For many years she worked as a secretary in Rochester, N.Y., and later in Tampa, Fla., until she retired in 1982.

She maintained a lifelong friendship with Betty Smith, and eventually moved to Maine in 1996 to live near Betty, her husband Bud, their children, George and Peter, and their families. Her hobbies included reading, poetry, crossword puzzles, and needlework. She loved music, especially show tunes. A wonderful conversationalist, sure of herself and what she believed, she was always witty and very entertaining. Survivors include her cousin, Elizabeth June Lane and husband John of Rye, N.Y.; and four godchildren. Memorial donations may be made to the Iris Network of Maine, 189 Park Ave., Portland, ME 04102. Arrangements are by Independent Death Care, 660 Brighton Ave., Portland.

In 1947 she left England and moved to Portland, where she eventually met and married Frank Stock on Feb. 11, 1950. They had three daughters together and were married for 48 years before he died in 1998. For many years she worked at Pratt Abbott in Portland and the Portland Public

Food for a snowy day

Spring is just a few more 12-foot snowbanks away from us now. On March 20, the first day of spring, we might get a warm, sunny day – or another wintry blizzard. We’ll keep the wood stoves and snow-blowers ready for whatever nature gives us. Until then, we’re in the comfort-food season, the icicle part of the year when boots and mittens and scarves are essential to our outdoor excursions and solid, hearty fare heightens the contrast of coming back indoors. Sustenance isn’t quite enough – in winter, we also hunger for defining flavors that help to make our meals more memorable. In our kitchens, we can celebrate these snowy months with hot, spicy chicken and soothing cinnamon-scented apple walnut cake. Hot Chicken Dippers with Blue Cheese Dressing The recipe is from G. M. Joachim’s “A Taste of It All, Celebrating the Mood of Food,” published by Thyme & Moss Publishing, P.O. Box 1148, Millinocket, ME 04462. The popularity of “A Taste of It All,” first published in 2008, has resulted in a second edition, released two months ago. For a copy of this unique book, visit www. thymemosspublishing.com. Click on “Local Availability” to see a list of establishments where “A Taste of It All” can be purchased. 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast Wash chicken and pat dry. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and place in a glass bowl or food storage bag. Marinade and Cooking Sauce 1/4 cup hot sauce (recipe follows) 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 clove garlic, minced Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste Whisk marinade ingredients together; pour over chicken pieces and marinate, refrigerated, for 2 hours. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Pour chicken and marinade into a glass baking dish and bake for 15-18 minutes. Serve immediately with celery ribs and blue cheese dressing (recipe follows). Blue Cheese Dressing 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled 3 tablespoons light buttermilk 3 tablespoons light sour cream 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 2 teaspoons rice or white wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon sugar 1 clove garlic, minced Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste Mash the blue cheese and buttermilk together in a shallow bowl, leaving some small chunks of blue cheese intact if pre-

ferred. Stir in the remaining ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use. Serves 4 to 6. Katahdin Red Hot Sauce 40 fresh hot red chili peppers (mixture of habaneras, cherry bombs, serranos, etc.), stems removed 1 head roasted garlic 1 cup water 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup apple cider vinegar Coarsely chop the peppers. Except for the vinegar, place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the vinegar and stir until well blended. Remove from heat and cool for 1 hour. Place the cooled pepper mixture in a blender and puree. Separate into small containers, which may be frozen until ready to use. Will last up to 8-10 weeks in refrigerator. Chunky Apple Walnut Cake with Apple Cider Glaze This dark, moist, chunky apple cake looks its special best when baked in a Bundt pan. It is glazed, not iced, with a wintry mix of butter, sugar, cider, orange juice, cream and Calvados, the apple brandy from Normandy. The recipe is from Julee Rosso’s and Sheila Lukins’ “The Silver Palate Cookbook,” published by Workman in 1984. In 2007, Workman published the “Silver Palate Cookbook, 25th Anniversary Edition.” 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing the pan 2 cups sugar 3 eggs 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground mace 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup whole wheat flour, sifted 1 1/4 cups shelled walnuts, coarsely chopped 3 1/4 cups coarse chunks of peeled and cored Rome Beauty apples 3 tablespoons Calvados or applejack Apple Cider Glaze (recipe follows) Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 10-inch round cake pan. In a large bowl, beat the vegetable oil and sugar until thick and opaque. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together the all-purpose flour, cloves, cinnamon, mace, baking soda and salt, then stir in the whole wheat flour. Add to the oil and egg mixture and mix until well blended. Add the walnuts, apple chunks, and Calvados all at once and stir the batter until the

pieces are evenly distributed. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let the cake rest for 10 minutes, then unmold and pour the glaze over the warm cake, or cut the cake and pour the glaze over the slices. Makes one 10-inch cake, 10-12 portions. Apple Cider Glaze 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 2 tablespoons brown sugar 6 tablespoons granulated sugar 3 tablespoons Calvados or applejack 4 tablespoons sweet cider 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice 2 tablespoons heavy cream Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat and stir in both sugars. Add the remaining ingredients, stir, raise the heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce the 424 Walnut Hill Road (Rtes 9 & 115) North Yarmouth, ME 829-4640 stonescafeandbakery.com

heat slightly and cook for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Pour while still warm over the warm cake. Makes 1 1/2 cups. Susan Lovell and her husband John, a great cook, live near Pat’s Meat Market & Cafe in Portland, with a hungry Maine coon cat and a poodle who eats cat food. An eighth-generation Mainer, she likes shellfish, steak, baked beans, cole slaw, corn bread, blueberry pie and Moxie. Her great great-grandfather, from Wellfleet, Mass., and his cousin founded Boston’s Union Oyster House and she really likes oysters and Guinness. And Boston cream pie.

available are only a few years old, this can be a smart decision. With the widespread availability of leases, many pre-owned vehicles are lease turn-ins that are only a few years old and in relatively good condition. And because leases limit the amount of mileage that can be put on the vehicle in a given year, chances are a lot of those pre-owned vehicles are also low in mileage. Used-car pricing almost always will be lower than a vehicle off the lot. This is a big draw to many consumers looking to save money on a vehicle. New cars depreciate as soon as they are driven away from the dealership, so even a vehicle that is only a few months old will cost less than it did brand new. continued next page

Pre-owned from previous page Buying a pre-owned car at a dealership also may come with a warranty. In order to liquidate their stock of used vehicles, oftentimes dealerships will certify the vehicles are in good condition and offer warranties that cover many of the same items one would find with a new vehicle. Certified vehicles can be a safer investment, primarily because the service history and the condition of the car is verifiable. Buying from a private owner may be a riskier purchase. That doesn’t mean that buying a used car from a private owner should be avoided at all costs. Many private sellers are honest individuals and will offer proof documenting the vehicle’s maintenance

Craig Sickels, RSU 5 athletic administrator and a member of the advisory committee, said the committee spent about four months reviewing the fields report by consultants Milone & MacBroom, and the current athletic and recreational facilities in Freeport, Pownal and Durham. He said the group considered the impact of the Seacoast United development on Pownal Road and looked at other facilities in the area. The committee’s plan is to create an athletic complex at Freeport High School with an artificial turf field, track, lights, press box, bathrooms and concession stand. The existing fields need modifi-

history. There are also car history reports that can be obtained using the VIN number on the vehicle to check to see if it was in any major accidents or had other kinds of damage. Buying used is also a green investment. While a brand-new hybrid may certainly save on fuel use, the energy needed to produce that new hybrid can be considerable. Purchasing a used car means less demand for a new one to be made. Another advantage to used vehicles is that insurance premiums may be lower. That’s because new cars usually require comprehensive insurance coverage, when a used vehicle may only require the basics. People looking to save money on a vehicle should consider pre-owned cars as viable options for their next vehicle.

cations and improvements to irrigation, drainage and fencing. The plan is to move the softball field and expand the baseball field.

“Sometimes we just don’t have anywhere to play,” he said. “If we create a single vision, we can satisfy the needs of all the stakeholders and benefit the kids and everyone involved.”

At the Middle School, the baseball field would be moved to create space for a new full-sized playing field. There would also be upgrades to irrigation, drainage and fences for more efficient use of the space.

The Freeport Fields and Trails group will host a public information meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 15, from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Community Center at 53 Depot Road.

Postseason fun begins in Forecaster Country

(Ed. Note: For the complete Falmouth-Scarborough and Falmouth-Lewiston boys’ hockey stories, see theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer One weekend of postseason action is in the books and things are about to really ramp up. Last weekend, swimming’s first of two Southwesterns meets was contested and the girls’ hockey and indoor track regular seasons came to a close. Basketball has a week to go and boys’ hockey and skiing are nearing their end. Here’s a look at what’s occurred and what’s to come:

Boys’ basketball While Greely and Yarmouth’s sure-postseason boys’ basketball teams were doing battle Friday (please see story), Falmouth is in a fight to extend its playoff streak to 27 years. The Yachtsmen began the week 8-8 and 10th in the Western Class B Heal Points standings, but only nine teams make the postseason. Falmouth won two of three last week, downing host Poland (65-46) and visiting Lake Region (64-49) before dropping a 52-48 decision at York. Against the Knights, junior Matt Kingry had 23 points, junior Jack Cooleen 15 and classmate Matt Packard 13. In the win over the Lakers, Cooleen had 18 points. At York, the Yachtsmen jumped to an early lead, but couldn’t hold it. Packard led the way with 16 points and Cooleen added 14. Falmouth hosted York Tuesday and finishes at Cape Elizabeth Friday. The Yachtsmen desperately need to win at least one and likely both to get into the postseason dance. Freeport fell to 0-16 last week after losses at Yarmouth (77-16) and at home to Traip (64-57). Senior Adam Higgins had a

team-high five points against the Clippers. Senior Kyle Strozewski had 17 points versus the Rangers. Freeport (16th in Western B) went to Poland Tuesday and closes at home against Wells Friday. In Western C, North Yarmouth Academy began the week 6-9 and 16th in the region (where just 10 teams qualify). The Panthers split last week, falling at A.R. Gould, 56-49, before downing visiting Sacopee, 57-48. In the loss, senior Eli Leavitt had 18 points. Junior Asad Dahia had 17 points in the victory. NYA was at Traip Tuesday, goes to Poland Thursday and closes at Old Orchard Beach Friday.

Girls’ basketball On the girls’ side, NYA has come from nowhere to position itself in the 10th spot in the Western C Heals, which would mean a playoff berth if the Panthers can hold off several other challengers and stay there. NYA enjoyed a 47-38 home victory over Sacopee Saturday as seniors Eliza Gendron and Blair Haggett had 13 points apiece. NYA then improved to 9-7 with its fifth win in six games Monday, 50-26, over visiting Old Orchard Beach. Junior Morgan Scully had 14 points, Gendron and Haggett 12 apiece. After hosting Traip Tuesday, the Panthers close the regular season Thursday at home versus Poland. In Western B, Greely’s playoffbound, but it might be the lone local representative in that class. The Rangers bounced back from last Monday’s loss at Lake Region with a 58-25 home romp over Fryeburg and a 52-22 home victory over Yarmouth. Against the Raiders, senior Sara Warnock had 18 points. Senior Megan Coale had 11 points and junior Caroline Hamilton nine in the win

Greely’s Melissa Jacques races down the track in the 800 Saturday in the regular season finale. Jacques won the event and the Rangers came in first as a team.

Late in overtime of Saturday night’s showdown, Falmouth freshman goalie Dane Pauls makes the save of the game, robbing Lewiston standout Sam Cloutier on a breakaway, to keep the game scoreless. The Yachtsmen and Blue Devils eventually settled for a 0-0 tie.

over the Clippers. Greely (13-3 and fourth in the Heals) was at Gray-New Gloucester Wednesday and closes at home against Lake Region Friday. Falmouth entered the final week of the regular season needing to take care of business to make it to the postseason. After beating visiting Poland, 60-41, last Thursday, the Yachtsmen fell, 49-33, at Lake Region and 57-35 at undefeated, defending state champion York. Senior Jess DiPhillippo and junior Jenna Serunian both had 13 points in the victory, while junior Ashleigh Burton added 10. Against the Lakers, DiPhillippo had a team-high 10 points. She also led Falmouth with 15 versus York. The Yachtsmen (8-8 and 10th in Western B, where just nine teams qualify) hosted York Tuesday and go to Cape Elizabeth for a pivotal regular season finale Friday. Freeport, despite turning its season around, will likely fall short this winter. The Falcons

were 5-11 and 12th at the start of the week after a 44-24 win at Yarmouth last Tuesday and a 61-51 loss at Traip Friday. In the victory, junior Morgan Brown had 10 points and sophomore Leigh Wyman nine. In the loss, senior Katee Poulin had 13. Freeport was home with Poland Tuesday and visits Wells Friday. Yarmouth fell to 1-15 and 17th after recent losses to visiting Freeport (44-24) and host Greely (52-22). The Clippers got eight points from senior Olivia Harrison and seven from promising freshman Monica Austin against the Falcons, on a night where Yarmouth honored past Boosters’ president, the late Tim White, who passed away in December. Freshman Olivia Smith had six points versus the Rangers. Yarmouth went to Cape Elizabeth Wednesday and closes at home against Gray-New Gloucester Friday.

team continues to soar up the standings and is now going toeto-toe with the best teams in the state. The Yachtsmen have gone 5-1-1 in their last seven games, including a hard-fought 3-1 win at Scarborough last Thursday and a 0-0 home tie versus undefeated Lewiston Saturday. Sophomores Hugh Grygiel and Kris Samaras and freshman Alden Weller had goals against the Red Storm. “Scoring goals isn’t our strength right now,” first-year Falmouth coach Adam Nicholas said. “Hopefully as we get into the second part of the season, we can find the back of the net because that’s what we need.” In the tie, freshman goalie Dane Pauls made 25 saves, shutting the door on a team that had won its past three games by a total of 23-0. “The kid knows he wants to be the best,” Nicholas said. “He

Yarmouth boys earn landmark win at Greely

(Ed. Note: For the full version of this story, with additional quotes and statistics, visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer CUMBERLAND—The history boys from Yarmouth made a monumental statement Friday night. Playing on a court where they had never won, the Clippers put forth a tremendous 32-minute effort which resulted in a palpitating 53-51 victory over the host Greely Rangers, continuing the program’s ascendance with a flourish. Yarmouth’s defense was stellar

throughout and after a slow offensive start, the 3-point acumen of senior Matt Murphy and unrivaled tenacity and clutch foul shooting of senior Luke Pierce proved to be the difference. The Clippers extended their win streak to eight games, improved to 13-3 and have to be considered as a legitimate threat to play into March. The Rangers’ eight-game win streak was snapped and they fell to 14-2 on the season. “Winning this game makes us that much closer and we all did it together and it was awesome,” said Murphy, who led all scorers with 19 points, including five

3-pointers. “It’s the first time we’ve won here,” added Yarmouth coach Adam Smith. “It’s hard for a 16-, 17-, 18-year-old boy to appreciate that, but I know I do and I know the town of Yarmouth does. We had a great crowd here tonight. It was a tremendous atmosphere. It’s as close to a tournament game as you’ll get in the regular season. The guys enjoyed every second of the 32 minutes tonight.”

One-sided history Greely has dominated Yarmouth over the years. The teams have met regularly since 1998 and the Rangers had captured 19 of the 21

previous meetings during the 24year reign of coach Ken Marks. The Rangers won at Yarmouth on Dec. 13 (61-53). In that one, the Clippers played well, but 13-of-33 free throw shooting did them in. Yarmouth came to Cumberland Friday night bearing the weight of history, but the Clippers showed their championship heart and found a way to steal the show. In the game’s early moments, Yarmouth’s defense was superb, but the Clippers couldn’t buy a basket. Greely turned the ball over on each of its first five possessions, but Pierce and junior

sharpshooter Josh Britten (who had a game-high 21 points in the first meeting) couldn’t convert. “It was really frustrating,” Pierce said. “We knew we had opportunities. I myself was a large part of that.” Finally, with 4:07 to play in the eight-minute first quarter, the hosts broke the scoring ice when junior Liam Maker’s inbounds pass led to an easy layup by senior Tanner Storey. After senior standout Sam Johnston made a jumper, freshman Mike McDevitt scored on a putback and Johnston did the

Roundup Pingitore commits to Robert Morris Yarmouth High senior Nate Pingitore, fresh off helping the Clippers win the first football state championship in school history in November, signed a National Letter of Intent Thursday to attend and play football at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh. Pingitore was joined by coach Jim Hartman, his family and teammates at a ceremony at the high school. “It was a long process and I looked at other schools, but I got a great vibe from Robert Morris,” Pingitore said. “The coaches were very nice to me and I felt like that was the place to be. All my life, it’s been my dream to play college football.” Pingitore plans to be a running back and study sports management. He hopes to intern with the Pittsburgh Penguins or Steelers while in college. Pingitore was part of a senior class that started the Yarmouth program eight years ago and graduated with a Gold Ball. “We all worked hard and set our minds to winning a championship,” Pingitore said. “That’s all we ever wanted. I didn’t think I’d actually be a part of it.” “It was one thing to bring football to Hoffer photo Yarmouth and have it grow and win a state championship, but now to have this success, it’s a big deal,” Hartman added. Robert Morris is coached by Joe Walton, the one-time head coach of the New York Jets. Assistant coach John Banaczak won three Super Bowls with the Steelers in the 1970s.

Yarmouth from page 17 same, the Rangers were up 8-0 with 2:16 to play in the period. Yarmouth finally got on the board with 1:24 to go when Britten knocked down a 3-ball. Britten followed with a pullup jumper (his final points of the first half) to get the Clippers within three, 8-5, after one. “It was a crazy first quarter,” Marks said. “We gave the ball back the first five possessions we had. We talked about possession basketball and it didn’t work.” The second period remained tight and Greely held a 20-17 lead at the break. A Murphy 3-pointer started the second half scoring and pulled the Clippers even at 20-20, but Storey made a layup after two offensive boards to make it 27-22 and a dunk by Storey (after a feed from Johnston) made it 31-23 Rangers with 3:30 to play in the third quarter. With his team on the ropes, Smith called timeout and Yarmouth responded. Pierce made a layup, then drained two foul shots to pull the Clippers within a possession, 35-32, heading for the final quarter. Greely extended its lead to five when Johnston scored on a reverse layup 21 seconds into the fourth, but with 6:37 remaining, Murphy was dead on with a 3-ball and the score was tied, 38-38. Murphy then made his fifth and final 3-pointer of the night with 6:13 showing and Yarmouth had its first lead of the second half. McDevitt answered with a jumper, but with 5:12 to go, Pierce made a layup to make it 43-40. The Rangers got the next five points to retake the lead. After a tip-in from Storey and a free throw from junior Nick Clark after an offensive board, Storey stole a pass, raced in and emphatically slammed the ball home to make it 45-43 Greely. Again Yarmouth responded with a 3, this one from Britten with 3:16 to go, which put the visitors on top to stay. With 2:27 left, Pierce somehow fought through the defense and managed to scoop home a tough-angle shot for a 48-45 advantage. Five seconds later, Johnston made two foul shots, but

junior Chris Knaub answered with one of two. McDevitt and Pierce traded foul shots to make it 50-48 and with 18.8 seconds remaining, Storey went to the line, but only made his second attempt, pulling the Rangers to within 50-49. Pierce was immediately fouled and missed his first attempt, but made the second and the lead was back to two. Greely would come down the floor seeking to break Yarmouth’s heart one more time, but with 5.7 seconds remaining, Maker was called for an offensive foul and the ball went back to the visitors. After a timeout, Knaub threw a touchdown pass to Pierce who ran a couple seconds off the clock before being fouled and with 3.4 ticks left, Pierce went to the line and calmly sank both attempts. “I felt confident,” Pierce said. “I’ve struggled with free throws, but we’re all supportive of each other.” “We made enough (free throws) to win,” Smith said. “That’s what we’ve done all year. We haven’t talked about foul shoot-

ing. When you hit them in crunch time it means a lot more than shooting 70 percent in regular time.” Johnston would make a jumper as time expired, but Yarmouth, for the first time, had won at Greely, 53-51. “It was close at halftime and that gave us confidence,” Murphy said. “We didn’t let the score bother us and focused on the end result. It’s a great accomplishment for team unity.” “All year, as a team, collaboratively, we’ve picked each other up and never given up,” said Pierce. “We’ve battled through adversity. It’s all about playing together. When you play together, good things will happen. This is greatest atmosphere for basketball I’ve played in.” “It’s an unbelievable victory here,” Smith added. “We just have to take it like that. It can’t be bigger than a very good regular season win over the team that will probably be No. 1 in the tournament. This means more to the program than it does the individual guys. They love to beat Greely, don’t

get me wrong, but it means more for where we’ve come from and what we’ve done.” Murphy led the Clippers with 19 points and added four rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots. “We kept trying and eventually it fell for all us,” Murphy said. “We worked it to the open man. They covered Josh tightly tonight so it worked out for me.” “Matt’s been playing really well down the stretch,” Smith said. “He gets very little fanfare with Josh and Luke on the floor, but he’s stepped up and hit big 3s the past few games.” Pierce finished with 15 points, five rebounds, four steals and a blocked shot and reminded everyone once again why he’s one of the most unique and special athletes to come our way in a long time. “Pierce wills us to work hard every single night,” Smith said. “He wills us to victory. He wills himself to the foul line to hit big foul shots. He wills himself on the boards,

Johnston wound up with a quiet 15 points (along with four steals) and McDevitt added 10 (10 rebounds and two blocks). “I give (Yarmouth) a ton of credit,” Marks said. “They came to play.

That’s the most intense game we’ve been in since the tournament.”

The Clippers close the regular season at Gray-New Gloucester Feb. 11. “We have to keep playing together and not be selfish,” Murphy said. “If we do, we’ll be fine.”

skills. People who came in the past can build on their skills and the introduction classes will encourage new people to come.” Brownlee said the goal of the DIY program is to expand the educational program with seasonal courses. The winter session started in January and will continue through March. These classes focus on how to prepare soil and plan a garden and how to weatherize a home and save energy in the winter. The spring, summer and fall sessions will offer classes pertaining to those seasons. “Some classes are timeless – how to make cheese or bread or butter – and we will try to mix it up as we go,” she said. By working with Freeport adult education, local energy and woodlot management groups, the DIY program reaches out to the community. “We try to involve people who care

from page 1 cluded offering all-day kindergarten in the fall or, as a cheaper option, expanding the existing Play and Learn program, adding a technology assistant, adding a licensed social worker and starting a new program for high school students at risk of dropping out. Including all-day kindergarten, the new programs would cost an estimated $459,000. All-day kindergarten was by far the most expensive new program, projected to cost $338,000, including teacher salaries and start-up costs. Lunt School Principal John Flaherty said the district piloted all-day kindergarten three and four years ago and that it was very successful. “We understand the financial situation all districts are in,” Flaherty said. “But we would be remiss if one of our proposals wasn’t for all-day kindergarten for all

students.” Flaherty said all-day kindergarten would reduce teacher loads from 36 students to 15-18 students, which would help foster connections with families and give teachers more time to identify struggling students. Kindergarten teacher Debbie Smith emphasized the importance of early childhood education, adding that 80 percent of schools in Maine offer all-day kindergarten and approximately 20 percent of Falmouth students attend private all-day kindergartens. School Board member Rachel Reed asked if the town could require parents to pay for all-day kindergarten, the way parents are currently paying for the Play and Learn day-care program. “We asked the state. It’s against the law to make people pay for public school,” Flaherty said. The board also considered a cheaper option for young students: Expand the enriched day care to four classes, corre-

SeniorLiving

sponding directly with kindergarten classes, and charge parents $75 per week. Flaherty estimated this proposal would cost approximately $30,000 to implement. Because Play and Learn is day care, not kindergarten, it is licensed differently by the state and cannot include public school education. Flaherty said the school would have to make sure there is a clear division between academics and day-care enrichment activities. Many speakers during the several-hour public forum spoke in favor of the all-day kindergarten program. Many also requested that the world languages program remain and indicated they are OK with an increase in taxes to pay for these programs. Falmouth’s tax rate has remained flat for three years. “Falmouth has let kids down when it comes to kindergarten,” said Jonathan Berry, a father of two elementary-age boys. “I would support a mil rate increase. It comes down to a couple of lattes or rounds of golf. It’s well worth it.”

Many speakers said they supported the construction of the new elementary school building because they thought all-day kindergarten would be offered. Others, however, opposed all-day kindergarten. “We’re pushing these kids too much,” resident and day-care business owner Julie Otte said. “Day care is much different, much more relaxed. Kids should have more time to play.” The School Board will continue to discuss the budget and the possibility of all-day kindergarten at its next meeting, Feb. 15, and will have an all-day budget workshop Saturday, March 12.

old homes along the shoreline before the hurricane, then went down and saw what was left. “Some (homes) are completely gone, some just had the steps up to the front door,” Sabo said. The students also met with an author who wrote a book about surviving the hurricane. In addition to working on the Habitat for Humanity house, Radke said, it was important that the students came away with a clear picture of the area now and what it was like years ago. “They did a great job. I think they had fun,” Radke said. “They all had differing degrees of (construction) skills, but none of them had done something like this before.” Sabo said that it was everyone’s first time doing a project like this, but that she and the other students genuinely enjoyed themselves. “I would definitely do it again,” she said.

Energy from page 5 • Tom Battin was director of information technology for the Obama campaign in Maine and gave at least $4,900 to the Obama campaign and national Democratic Party between 2008 and 2011. He was hired as a field organizer in August 2010. • Jed Rathband was among a group of self-described “Democratic activists” who started Donkey Card, a discounted home heating oil buying service whose proceeds in part went to fund “Dem Corps,” described on its website as “a group of concerned Democratic activists, progressive community leaders and local business owners ...” He was brought on as a contractor in September and put on staff in November. Also, Executive Director Seth Murray donated $320 to the Maine Democratic State Committee a few weeks before he began working at the alliance in early June, 2010. Murray also donated $2,300 to the Obama campaign in 2008 and $500 to Democratic U. S. Rep. Chellie Pingree in 2007. “We are a nonpartisan organization,” Murray said. “I can tell you straight up, I’m the one who made the hiring decisions, and I’m not at all influenced by that kind of factor. For me, it’s who’s going to be doing the best job.” Murray declined to identify the staff members; the center identified the staff through public records. There are three more outreach staff members, but the center has been unable to determine their identities. Murray said, “I do know that one of them has worked on political campaigns in addition to their community organizing experience.”

The alliance, which got the no-bid contract in August 2010, announced Jan. 28 that it was shutting down the program and handing back unspent money to the Maine agency, Efficiency Maine Trust, that had partnered with it on the federal stimulus grant. That announcement came just before the center planned to publish an expose of the program. The center found that the alliance was headed by Baldacci’s former legal counsel, Tom Federle, and that a top Baldacci aide asked Efficiency Maine staff to include the alliance in a larger grant proposal to the federal Department of Energy, despite misgivings by some agency officials. The center’s investigation also found that, nearly six months into its one-year contract, the alliance had only signed up 50 homes for weatherizing, far below its goal of 1,000. Compensation for the alliance jobs ranged from $15 an hour for process facilitators to annual salaries between $30,000 and $40,000 for community outreach staff. Murray earned $80,000. Murray said they usually had between 15 and 20 applicants for each position and that he led the interviews. Martin did not return the center’s phone or e-mail messages. But other staffers who did respond were united in saying that they were hired for their skills, not their politics. “We were all hired not because of our politics, but in spite of it,” Butterfield said. “I believe that I was fully vetted for this position,” Innes said. “I’ve never done a single thing for the Democratic Party,” Rathband said. “The idea of lumping me in as some sort of Democratic cabal is far-fetched.”

February 10, 2011

“I have worked diligently for the past seven months to educate community members,” Wright said. Did employees at any point look at their colleagues and wonder at the high percentage of Democratic Party activists? “Work is work,” Batten said. “I don’t pay attention to the person’s political views.” “I never really considered the connection,” said Berube, the former Mitchell campaign staffer and longtime Democratic Party operative. “It was not different than other jobs I’ve had in the past.” That’s precisely the problem, said Dave Levinthal, spokesman for the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington, D.C., group that tracks the influence of money in politics. “One has to wonder if this was a truly nonpartisan independent group that was working on behalf of lowering energy costs,” Levinthal said, “or if this was a political vehicle for the Democratic Party. “If an organization such as this is stacked with people who are clearly

Tax

very active in one party and members of a certain party, you might be scratching your head if you’re a Republican or independent.” Efficiency Maine Executive Director Michael Stoddard said, “It’s really important that Mainers perceive Efficiency Maine programs as being totally nonpartisan because our mission is to lower everyone’s energy costs through impartially administered programs. So, it’s unfortunate if a particular contract ends up appearing heavily partisan, one way or another.” Sen. Michael Thibodeau, R-Winterport, co-chairman of the Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Energy, Utilities and Technology, said that he has asked that Efficiency Maine staff appear before the committee to discuss the alliance contract.

from page 1 Station, Yarmouth taxpayers could expect an increase in their bill. “While a 3 percent increase (in taxes) may not be that bad for some people, those on fixed incomes will have a hard time,” he said. “We have to think of those people.” As part of the budget process, councilors will invite department heads to the upcoming Operations Committee meetings to discuss potential budget reductions and savings opportunities.

“For the past seven to nine years we’ve been cutting back,” Tupper said. “We have to make sure we can still get the job done and make sure service isn’t compromised.” The Operations Committee will meet on Monday, Feb. 14, at 4 p.m. in the Community Room at Town Hall. The next Town Council meeting will be held on Thursday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Log Cabin. Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or aanderson@theforecaster.net

had difficulty keeping current with purchases, but there has been no interruption in service. “It is in everyone’s best interest that we are fully public about our situation,” Swardlick said. “We wanted to do it and the (DECD) wanted to make sure people knew they were overseeing the situation.” Elaine Scott, marketing and communications director at the DECD, confirmed a new contract has not been awarded to Swardlick for this year. She said the contract is awarded through a bidding process and each year the state has the option to renew or not. “The timing of the announcement does not impact the state because the plans are set in advance,” she said. “Everything will go on as planned and won’t impact the program at all.” Scott said the state wants to ensure that when a contract is awarded, every party gets what is expected. She said the DECD needs to ensure contracts are executed properly, but would not speculate about the Swardlick situation. “There is an audit going forward, but we don’t know what will happen until the audit is done,” she said.

She deflected questions about the impact Swardlick’s failure to pay clients may have on the state’s ongoing relationship with publishers and broadcasters that provide the ad space and air time. “This program markets to consumers all around the country and we will see no negative impact whatsoever,” she said. Swardlick said his firm is reaching out to the vendors and media clients to work out the situation. He said after 30 years in business the company has an open and positive working relationship with clients locally, regionally and nationally. “Our team is working every hour of every day full steam ahead,” he said. “We are working with the Office of Tourism to keep them fully engaged with all of the client programs. The commitment to our clients is 100 percent.” Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or aanderson@theforecaster.net

Budget from page 2 am very proud of the work we’ve done,” Paolucci said. The budget provides appropriate instructional support services, more financial support for football and girl’s ice hockey, and additional textbooks and curriculum materials for math and science, she said. “We are also looking into a furniture and technology replacement plan,” Paolucci said. Laptop computers for teachers in grades 2-6 will be replaced, along with furniture in one wing of Yarmouth Elementary School. Paolucci said the expenditures are not added expenses, but are a systematic realignment of certain budget items. She also said there is no anticipation of a spending freeze unless something drastic changes. “We’ve put of buying textbooks and other necessities so we need to catch up,” she said. The School Committee will hold its next budget workshop Feb. 15 at the Rowe School at 7 p.m. Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or aanderson@theforecaster.net
