Council candidate rebukes critics

Memorial Day march in Yarmouth

PAul CunningHAM / FOR tHE FORECAStER

By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — Town Council candidate Bryan Dench says people who oppose his personal beliefs are waging a coordinated attack against his candidacy. Responding to claims by some residents that his views on state and national issues are too extreme for the Town Council, Dench said there is no reason these opinions should be part of a local election. “This is a coordinated, ugly

By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — The town is deciding whether to allow two affordable housing developments along Route 100. After an executive session May 14, the Town Council unanimously authorized Town Manager Bill Shane to develop contract zone agreements with companies that each want to build 17 to 20 single-family homes on properties in West See page 40

ers and employees with the water temperatures needed to facilitate sanitary hand washing – despite state and federal requirements that they do so. People who go to the bathroom, and then use cool water afterwards to wash their hands, are more likely to promote the transmission of germs than those who use hot

water, experts say. “There’s a fecal-oral transmission,” Dr. Stephen Sears, Maine’s state epidemiologist and a big fan of proper hand washing, said. “That means that somehow, organisms got from your feces to your mouth. It’s not pleasant to think about, but it happens a lot.” The Forecaster went into the

restrooms of 14 area restaurants operated by McDonald’s, Burger King, and Wendy’s to check restroom water temperature compliance. Of the 14 restaurants, nine were not in compliance with the law, which requires a minimum See page 32

School, where amendments presented by the RSU 5 School Board and residents added about $17,500 to help fund vocational education and the Port Teen Center. Almost $12,500 of the amendment increases was added to the $441,000 in Article 4 to pay for tuition increases at the Maine Region 10 Vocational Technical High School in Brunswick. Proposed amendments that failed would have added $19,000 for playground equipment and flooring repairs at Morse Street School in Freeport and reduced the system administration line item by $6,500. While voters rejected adding money for Morse Street School repairs, they approved an overall 7.9 percent increase in Article 3 for facilities management, with $199,200 allocated to future capital improvements. The reduction in the system administration budget was proposed because it is the continued page 33

Teachers vote again on contract with RSU 5 By David Harry FREEPORT — A second union vote was underway Tuesday and Wednesday on the proposed contract for Regional School Unit 5 teachers. Coastal Education Association President Nancy Drolet said she wanted some kind of clear result from the balloting, which was scheduled to end Wednesday. “We wanted a yes or no,” Drolet said. “It’s like having a tie game. It’s OK in elementary school.”

One vote is what it will take to break a 58-58 deadlock on the proposed three-year contract that would run through June 30, 2014. “I’ve been telling teachers this is a good time to teach students about the power of one,” Drolet said. The tie vote occurred May 22 as almost 90 percent of the 129 union members cast ballots on the first contract to fully conform

Former Cumberland councilor challenges SAD 51 incumbent By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — Karen Campbell faces a challenge from former Town Councilor Jeff Porter in her campaign for a second term on the School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors. Campbell, 50, of Stonewall Drive, has lived in Cumberland for nine years. She is a married, at-home parent and has three children; two are in the SAD 51 system. She is the School Board vice chairwoman and is also involved with its finance, negotiations, and strategic thinking and planning committees. Campbell also led the board's communications committee for two years, has been the policy committee chairwoman and has served as liaison between the School Board and parent-teacher organization. "I'm passionate about the value of a quality education," Campbell said, also noting that serving on the School Board requires significant time and energy, and that she has shown that she is capable and willing to make such a commitment. Campbell also said her first term on the board has made her knowledgeable of the issues that face the panel, and that she is best-positioned to aid SAD 51 in moving forward. She said she works to include every viewpoint and build consensus. As the

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/124986

only woman among Cumberland's five board members, she said she feels having diversity of perspective and voice is important. Campbell's service to the school community includes work with Foundation 51, SAD 51's Arts Alliance and the Project Graduation Committee. She also works with the ALS Society of Northern New England and is an active volunteer with her church. Porter, 46, of Crossing Brook Road, stepped down from the Town Council last year after 12 years. His wife has worked in SAD 51, but is now teaching in Pownal, which allows him to seek a School Board seat. They have five children; four are still in district schools. A lifelong Cumberland resident, Porter is a Cumberland-North Yarmouth Lions Club member and spent nine years on the People's Regional Opportunity Program board, including two as chairman. His job with the U.S. Commercial Service, as director of the U.S. Export Assistance Center in Portland, has taken him to about 30 countries since 1995. "I believe deeply in education," Porter said. "I am deeply committed to public

service in my community. ... I've got the ability to take difficult information and make decisions, and not allow personal friendships or other biases to slip into the decision-making process. His service has included time with the Greely Middle School Building Committee, the Cumberland Housing Authority, the Val Halla Golf & Recreation Center board and Twin Brooks and Rines Forest committees, Cumberland's finance, recreation, energy advisory, Doane and town center committees, and a local regionalization committee. Porter also served on a regionalization committee under former Gov. John Baldacci, and helped put together playgrounds at the North Yarmouth Memorial and Mabel I. Wilson schools. He also serves on the board of the Maine International Trade Center and is an officer of the Maine District Export Council.

Fiscal 2013 Earlier this month Campbell was among the School Board members who voted to approve next year's budget, 6-2. The $30.4 million spending plan is 5.3 percent greater than this year's. If approved by voters, the budget could increase taxes in Cumberland 50 cents per $1,000 of property valuation, a climb of 3.1 percent. North Yarmouth could see a tax rate increase of between 94 and 98 cents, or about about 7.1 percent, pending final valuations. "I support the budget because it provides savings where possible," Campbell said. "For example, by refinancing our debt, reducing staff where appropriate due to (declining) enrollments and reallocating resources." She added that at the same time, the budget "allows us to meet our contractual obligations, and support the district's educational initiatives." Porter said he participated in all public School Board meetings since late last year, and in all the school budget meetings, and "to be honest, I don't know if I have received enough information to make a decision (of) whether to support

or be opposed to the budget." He said he was used to a different public budget process, "where you're going down through the different cost centers, not just in the aggregate, but in the individual (areas), so you have a broad and a micro understanding of the budget, how it's put together, and I don't have that understanding (with the school budget)." Porter said he sees the School Board having three key responsibilities: the budget, setting policy and supervising the superintendent. "Those are the three general areas that I think that I would focus on," he said.

School closure

Campbell said she has not decided whether she would support a recent task force recommendation to close North Yarmouth Memorial School and move its fourth and fifth grades to an expanded Greely Middle School in Cumberland. The task force has said the net savings of closing the school would be about $550,000 a year. "I want to carefully consider the opinions of all stakeholders, and weigh the potential impact to the fourth- and fifth-grade students against the potential savings, before I make a final decision," Campbell said. She said she also looks forward to seeing the results of a survey that has sought community input on whether the school should be closed, as well as hearing concerns from parents of the school's students, and getting feedback from the North Yarmouth Economic Development Committee regarding potential uses for the school. Porter said he would probably support closing the school, "reluctantly, and regrettably," for a number of reasons identified by the task force. "It is in poor shape, and unfortunately, given the funding scenarios in Augusta right now, we're not going to get state participation for a new school in the foreseeable future," he said. Porter said he needs to better understand the full recommendation concerning why two grades should be added to the middle school. He suggested that students being moved from the North Yarmouth school could have been moved to the now-closed Drowne Road School until the district's school population grew again, and the funding was available to

build a new school in North Yarmouth. "I believe strongly that there needs to continue to be a strong tie to North Yarmouth," Porter said. "... I think it's important that we have a school there. Given the financial situation we're in, and the circumstances, I don't believe that's possible at this time, but I would strongly support planning for the future, that a school does get rebuilt at some point in North Yarmouth."

Incumbents Shirley Storey-King of Shirley Lane, Ron Copp of Interurban Drive and George Turner of Carriage Road are all seeking their third terms. The fiscal 2013 school budget, which the SAD 51 Board of Directors recently approved 6-2, goes to Cumberland and North Yarmouth residents for two votes.

Taste of the Wild

Withdrawal from SAD 51 Neither Porter nor Campbell expressed support for an ongoing petition drive to have North Yarmouth withdraw from the district. North Yarmouth resident Mark Verrill, who is leading the effort, has said leaving the school district would achieve a "significant reduction" in property taxes, improve the quality of education at a lower cost, and preserve North Yarmouth's rural character by curbing growth. "I haven't seen any data yet that would support the idea that it would be less expensive for North Yarmouth residents to fund their own school system, or to tuition their students out to other districts," Campbell said. She added that she thinks the Cumberland and North Yarmouth communities have "partnered successfully for years and developed a high-quality school system, and I believe there are more advantages for students and savings to be gained by remaining part of the SAD." Porter said he disagrees with Verrill, and that he thinks the residents of both towns "have benefited greatly" through their relationship in SAD 51, and have saved millions of dollars by working together. "It doesn't mean that we don't have problems on occasion that need to be worked out, but that's normal," he said. "We have a great community." Election Day is June 12.

Opposition delays decision on Yarmouth village restaurant By David Harry YARMOUTH — Matt Chappell has a fresh idea for downtown dining, but it is one that has left a sour taste in the mouths of some Main Street residents. Chappell would like to open an 80-seat restaurant at 189 Main St., in the former Masonic Hall. The building, across the street from the American Legion Log Cabin where local government boards meet, is also the former site of the Clayton’s and Haggerty’s restaurants. His restaurant plan requires only an administrative review, Town Planner Vanessa Farr said. But having 80 seats requires a zoning change councilors will now discuss at a June 7 workshop, before a possible June 14 vote. At their May 17 meeting, councilors tabled a motion to increase or eliminate a 60-seat cap on restaurants in the Village Zone where Chappell plans to open. The decision was made after Hilary McKinnon and Michael St. Laurent and his wife, Debra, spoke in opposition to the

Yarmouth Town Meeting precedes elections By David Harry YARMOUTH — Spend it or amend it. Those are the choices for voters at Town Meeting on Tuesday, June 5. With a 31-item warrant up for discussion, residents can parse through more than $32 million in school and municipal fiscal year 2013 spending requiring $26.22 million in property tax revenues. If passed as presented, the combined budgets and town share of Cumberland County government operations would increase the local tax rate from $20.28 per $1,000 of assessed value to $21.15. Within the articles on the budget, voters can review and amend the 11 “cost

centers” of the $20.16 million education budget, which includes the introduction of full-day kindergarten classes. If passed as presented, the education budget would increase 1.75 percent. The municipal budget of $10.9 million requires $7 million in property tax commitments and adds $271,000 in spending. About $195,000 will be allocated for the town share of improvements on Route 88.

tial for his success. “I believe 80 seats are important for the space involved and our business model,” he said. “We mean to be approachable and affordable.” McKinnon, who has lived on Main Street for nine years, said it is the scale of Chappell’s plans she objects to. Eliminating the seating cap will lead to consequences councilors had not considered before she and her neighbors spoke up, she said. “The point was to restrict downtown village enterprises,” McKinnon said, referring to an ordinance Town Manager Nat Tupper said was enacted about 20 years ago as the town grappled with the arrival of franchise restaurants with drivethrough service. It was an effort to preserve the village character, where zoning rules had not existed. But Tupper said 60 seats was “somewhat arbitrary.” Farr approved a waiver to count up to 17 parking spaces on-site, on-street and at the the Log Cabin and Town Hall to accommodate for the potential of 80 seats if councilors approve a zoning change. Acting as advisers, Planning Board members have recommended eliminating all seating restrictions in the Village Zone, Tupper said. McKinnon said the council needs to consider additional parking demands for restaurant employees, and Chappell’s plans to serve dinners and Sunday brunches will add noise and congestion along Main Street when they least need it. “To finally have some peace and quiet on evenings and weekends is such

Fast lane doesn’t fit Falmouth discussion of Route 1 By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — The Community Development Committee has decided it isn’t ready for a scheduled June 7 public hearing on the future of Route 1. The committee discussed the upcoming public hearing at a meeting on May 17. “We want to make sure that we are ready because it is a significant opportunity for deciding what to do with Route 1,” Tony Payne, chairman of the committee, said. At the meeting, the committee looked at early cost estimates for various Route 1

corridor improvements, identifying some of their top options and potential costs for those projects. According to Payne, however, the future of these options depends heavily on the decision to change, or not change, zoning along Route 1. “One of the things we determined was the decision to do something on Route 1, in terms of infrastructure, has a lot to do with what we are going to do, or not do, with zoning,” he said. “Until we make that decision, it really makes the other discussion (improvement options) less

pertinent.” On May 21, the committee discussed potential zoning changes for the Route 1 corridor. “This discussion begins to center on proposals on either side and whether or not we want to change the zoning restrictions or liberalize them so that property owners have other incentives in terms of the use of their land,” Payne said.

The committee was scheduled to brief the Town Council at its May 30 meeting to get feedback from councilors and to begin to engage the public in the discussion. Payne said that at this point it looks as though the Town Council will hear public comment on Route 1 improvements in the early part of July, after the committee receives more information from the consultants working on project options.

Pope transfers Portland bishop to Buffalo By Matt Hongoltz-Hetling PORTLAND — The pope has sent Maine’s highest-ranking Catholic, Bishop Richard J. Malone, to the Diocese of Buffalo. The move will result in an opening that could last for up to a year, officials of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland said Tuesday. The decision, made by Pope Benedict XVI a week ago, was announced publicly Tuesday morning. Malone said that, in retrospect, he saw a sign from God that presaged the decision. “Sometimes, subtle indications of God’s plan for us only become apparent in hindsight,” Malone said during a teleconference from Buffalo. “The day before the archbishop called me, I was up in northern Maine celebrating confirmation liturgies. ... One of the folks up there advised us to get off the interstate and take a more rural route. ... He said, ‘If you’re really lucky, you’ll see a herd of buffalo.’ And there they were, 10 buffaloes grazing in a field.” Malone was born in Massachusetts in 1946, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1972 in Boston. He served as the auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese in Boston from 2000 to March 2004, when he became the 11th bishop of Portland. Malone said the call to serve in the Diocese in Buffalo, which has three times as many Catholics as Maine, was “surprising and very happy news.” “I accepted immediately,” he said. Still, said Malone, he will miss the Northeast. “I will certainly miss Maine,” he said, “and the region where I have spent all of my life until now.” Monsignor Andrew Dubois of the Diocese of Portland said that the decision didn’t alter Malone’s focus on his Maine schedule over the course of the past week. “In many ways, it’s been business as

usual,” Dubois said. Sue Bernard, communications director for the Portland Diocese, said Malone’s transfer will probably be challenging for him. “He did talk about how he doesn’t know one soul in Buffalo, so I think that’s going to be tough,” she said. “But this is the life of a priest. He seemed to be in very good spirits.” Dubois said Malone’s Aug. 10 installation in Buffalo will not shake the church’s commitment to defining marriage in Maine as between a man and a woman, a debate in which Malone has played a central role. “Because the teaching of the church is solid, ... the teaching does not change and therefore every priest, every deacon, every layperson who is faithful to the church is going to continue speaking about the beauty and truth of marriage as

we’ve known it for the last 2,000 years,” Dubois said. Malone has presided over a period of restructuring of church entities driven by a reduction in resources. “In my eight years in Portland, we went from 135 parishes and 45 missions ... and have gone to about 66 parishes,” he said Tuesday. “Many of those have been mergers. ... In many cases, six, seven, eight, nine, even as many as 10 churches have become one.” Dubois said that the church may be able to avoid significant reorganization for the immediate future. “I’m hoping that this will keep us in good stead for the next eight or 10 years. I really do,” he said. An interim bishop of Portland is expected to be appointed within a week, pending a permanent appointment by the Pope. Bernard said that an extensive vetting

of candidates can make the process for permanent appointment take up to a year. She said the permanent replacement could be an existing bishop, or it could be someone who is being promoted. During his tenure in Portland, Malone came under fire from critics who said he has shielded priests guilty of child molestation from the consequences of their actions. One organization, the Ignatius Group, held a protest in April near Malone’s home in Falmouth, and has repeatedly called upon the bishop to publicize the whereabouts of priests known to have committed sexual abuse against children. While Malone spoke of transparency as a high priority in Buffalo, Paul Kendrick, of the Ignatius Group, said Malone’s time in Portland was marked by a closing of the ranks. “I’m sad when I think about what could have been over the past eight years,” he said. “As an advocate for clergy sexual abuse victims, I’ve watched as Bishop Malone and his priests have bullied, mistreated, ostracized, rejected, and played hardball legal tactics with the same kids who piled into the family car to go to mass every Sunday.” Kendrick said that Malone’s replacement is unlikely to change the situation. “I have no hope whatsoever,” he said. “They will dispatch to Maine a clone of Bishop Malone.” Now 66, Malone could serve in Buffalo for as many as nine more years before he reaches the church-mandated retirement age of 75. He replaces retiring Bishop Edward Kmiec, who announced his resignation when he turned 75 last June. The Diocese in Buffalo oversees 633,000 Catholics in eight counties, compared to 187,000 in all of Maine.

News briefs Falmouth school contents to be sold FALMOUTH — The town will hold a public sale of the contents of the PlummerMotz and Lunt School buildings on Saturday, June 3, from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. All items purchased during the garage sale-style event must be paid for and removed from the property on June 3. Items included in the sale include desks, chairs, filing cabinets, bookshelves, dry erase boards, cork boards, pencil sharpeners, toys, fish tanks and more. Money from the sale will go toward funding Falmouth's adult education programs and to supporting the existence of the school buildings.

Creek survey volunteers needed FREEPORT — The public is invited to join in a survey of the health of the Concord Gully Brook watershed beginning at 8 a.m. June 8. The survey, a joint project of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, Cumberland County Soil and Conservation District and town, will identify sources of runoff in the creek from ditches, surface runoff and small streams. Conservation District Project Manager Joe Anderson said Concord Gully Brook, which empties into the Harraseeket River,

Restaurant from page 6 a blessing,” McKinnon said. The St. Laurents live next door to the former Masonic Hall, now occupied by retail businesses. “It is clearly a (‘not-in-my-back-yard’) discussion, but why would I not be concerned?” Michael St. Laurent asked councilors. Farr and Tupper said municipal views about parking have evolved over the years, in part to combat sprawl created by surrounding businesses with parking lots that are rarely more than half-filled. The Village Zone extends from around Portland Road to Elm Street. Surveys have shown a desire for a restaurant in the area, but McKinnon said she doubts one the size planned by Chappell will draw more pedestrian than vehicle traffic. “We asked for things on a certain scale and I don’t think this is in keeping with what towns people have asked for,” she said. The objections from McKinnon and the St. Laurents resonated strongly with Councilors Tim Sanders, Leslie Hyde and Andrew Kittredge. Councilors voted 5-0 May 17 to table the motion to change the zoning. “I think it is dangerous to change the zoning ordinance,” Sanders said, adding it could hurt property values while setting a bad precedent. Chappell said he is confident a clearer picture of his intentions will alleviate worries neighbors have about his plans. “It was a bit of a surprise to get some resistance,” he said, “but I would be concerned as well.” David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@theforecaster.net.

Councilors were also scheduled to vote on approving a supplemental appropriation of $40,500 to finance abated property taxes resulting from valuation reductions granted by the assessor. The council also planned to vote on amendments to the current temporary signage ordinance, proposed by the Falmouth Economic Improvement Committee. An order to adopt a voluntary pledge of fair campaign practices for Town Council and School Board Candidates and an

order to nominate municipal officials to serve on a state legislative policy committee were also on the agenda, along with introduction of an amendment that would change the maximum level of income and expenses for the town's General Assistance program.

Cumberland legislator backs Porter

Sachs has what it takes in District 106

The voters of Cumberland have some important decisions to make on June 12. This year there is a dynamic race for the SAD 51 School Board by two capable individuals. I have learned first hand the elements that make a good candidate and those that make a great candidate. Jeff Porter represents a great candidate. It is unusual when a person, who has the depth of experience in municipal management and planning, forecasting and budgeting, business and state issues, years of community service to our town and an active dad, steps up to public service. I know that Jeff Porter is the best candidate at the right time. Simply put, Jeff can from day one, successfully navigate the complex educational planning process to achieve an efficient, effective and high-quality education district for all our students. Rep. Meredith Strang Burgess Cumberland

On a beautiful spring day about two weeks ago, I met Melanie Sachs, candidate for the Maine Legislature in the upcoming District 106 Democratic primary. We talked of various issues, and of course the subject eventually turned to affordable health care. I told her of my middle daughter's difficulty in finding health insurance in this state. She listened very carefully, asked some questions, and gave some possible solutions. Within an hour of our meeting, Melanie had emailed me more helpful information about where my daughter could turn for help: names, agencies, and numbers. Melanie has a deep commitment to making health care available to all Mainers. That combination of knowledge, compassion, commitment, and responsiveness add up to the makings of a top-rate representative. She has my vote. Deede Montgomery Freeport

Sachs can make tough decisions

I’m writing in support of Melanie Sachs in the House District 106 Democratic primary. Her energy, enthusiasm and common sense are just a few reasons why I support her. I believe she’ll do what excellent representatives are supposed to do: actually discuss instead of harangue, work with diligence and patience, be open to hearing all the information, and thoughtful in decision-making. This coming session isn’t going to be easy. Yes, there will be hard decisions. But they have to be made with the best interests of all our citizens in mind over the long term. I want someone representing me who is willing to do the negotiating, cross-aisle work that will create solutions for the social and economic issues our state is facing. Melanie can talk. She can listen. She’s not afraid to have an opinion and suggest a solution. She wants results that improve lives. Good choice for representative. Deborah McLean Freeport

Falmouth councilor backs Anderson, Dench Four very capable people are running for the two available Falmouth Town Council seats. Their differences are not in their abilities but in their philosophy. Should government be to provide the basic services – police and fire protection; good, safe roads; outstanding schools; a safe harbor – or should government provide more? Do we pass ordinances that we believe are for the betterment of society or do we educate and try to persuade for our beliefs? Do we spend our tax dollars on the needs or on the wants? I believe it is important that your councilors listen to you, the citizens, and vote for policies that will help the town, but have minimum invasion in your life. Signs for Russ Anderson and Bryan Dench are in front of my house because I believe they each have the best philosophy. They get my vote. Faith Varney, Town Council vice chairwoman Falmouth

Falmouth needs councilors like Farber I am writing to support Karen Farber for Falmouth Town Council. Karen’s two terms on the Falmouth School Board and Comprehensive Planning Advisory Committee speak to her commitment to our community. She has put real time into serving us, always considering conservation of financial and environmental resources. She is well prepared and is already familiar with many issues we face. Karen does diligent research and listens carefully, gathering all the information she can before offering an opinion or decision. Our national government is mired in partisan politics. Falmouth needs

councilors on a local level who take the community's concerns to heart, but can be fair thinking and open to all sides of the issues and respond with integrity and honesty. Falmouth is a wonderful place to live and Karen Farber will help keep it that way, supporting local businesses, and amazing schools to keep us a safe, economically viable town. Ginny Squires-Eklund Falmouth

Sachs has all the necessary qualities It’s been said that the mark of a good politician is that they listen and truly understand what is being said. This is only one of the impeccable qualities of Melanie Sachs, who is running for state representative for Freeport and Pownal in the Democratic primary. Another positive quality is Melanie's moral fortitude, but my favorite quality is her sense of humor. Melanie was raised and educated in Maine. Melanie is the first person in her family to go to college, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Bates College and went on to begin her illustrious career. Melanie was born a leader, and after receiving her master's in social work, began 20-plus years of public service with the people of Maine. Melanie’s great energy and fabulous intelligence round out her qualities, along with just plain being nice. Join me in voting for Melanie Sachs on June 12. Virginia Boyles Freeport

state to make life better for many of us. Melanie has a degree in political science from Bates College (Phi Beta Kappa) and worked for Sen. George Mitchell. She has used her clinical master’s degree to work directly with Maine's people in the areas of health care, mental health care, and education. Melanie has experience in the private and nonprofit business sectors, and with Maine government agencies. I have worked directly with Melanie in Girl Scouts for the past five years and have seen the level of commitment, energy, and dedication she has for our community. Melanie Sachs has a depth of political, business, and direct personal experience that is unmatched in this primary. I urge you to vote for Melanie Sachs on June 12. Kathryn Balzer Freeport

Anderson for Falmouth Town Council

I am writing in support of Russ Anderson for Falmouth Town Council. Russ and I worked closely together at UNUM Corp. when we were both members of the senior management team. Russ proved himself to be a talented financial executive, an excellent communicator and a creative problem solver. He led two of UNUM’s five major lines of business during his time there, and always generated strong results. Russ is highly analytical, a fast learner, an excellent listener and decisive when the time comes to act. He worked well with people throughout the company, operated with great integrity, and built strong teams that delivered strong results. Russ has lived in Falmouth for 20 years and is committed to serving our community. He has the skills, the experience and the personal attributes Falmouth needs on the Town Council. I urge you to vote for Russ Anderson on June 12. Steve Meahl Falmouth

Sachs’ track record will benefit Freeport

Sachs for Freeport, Pownal Democrats

We are writing in support of Melanie Sachs in the upcoming Democratic primary for the Maine House of Representatives District 106. We think she will continue a legacy of active leadership set forth by departing Rep. David Webster. Melanie has worked in the private sector, with nonprofit groups and in state government to support public health for more than 20 years. She understands that programs that are currently being threatened by our governor are vital underpinnings for Mainers. It is "pound foolish" to eliminate reasonable regulation that protects our clean air, water and food. It is absurd to drop thousands of seniors and other vulnerable populations from cost-controlled primary health-care programs falling back upon more expensive emergency visits. We trust someone who has a proven track record of working collaboratively – who has demonstrated her valuable skills already. She will do well in Augusta. Tamas and Rosalind Peredy Freeport

I am voting for Melanie Sachs in the House District 106 Democratic primary, because she has the experience, having worked with Sen. George Mitchell. She has spent years doing social work, and has been a leader. Melanie is the one person with the stamina and personal grace to deal with the difficult situation in Augusta. Alicia Klick Freeport

Wheaton for Yarmouth School Committee

So many parents have chosen to raise their children in Yarmouth because of the excellent public schools. Over and over I heard the argument during the school consolidation debates: my family moved here because of the schools. During that time, I saw how passionate Tim Wheaton was about keeping our schools exemplary. His dedication to the Yarmouth School Committee from 2003-2009, his dedication to coaching soccer, and his overall dedication to Yarmouth has earned him the respect of the administrators, teachers, parents, and children. His experience will help him to hit the ground running, and I hope you will join me in voting for him for Yarmouth School Committee. Valerie Hamilton Yarmouth

Mahoney will move Falmouth forward Remember when Falmouth planned and embraced the future? We planned and achieved a more walkable and business friendly Route 1. We planned and purchased open space for fields and trails. We leveraged hundreds of thousands of dollars of private money. Falmouth worked with stakeholders in Pleasant Hill, Blackstrap Hill and Johnson Road to create projects that reflected our community values. I don't recall patronizing comments about "wants and needs." I remember councilors bringing the same vision to the town that they brought to their businesses, and no successful business neglects investment. We invested in those efforts, including consultants, because we don't always know the answers. We need that kind of positive energy and vision – combined with experience – on the council. The future is now. That's why I'm voting for Sean Mahoney. He has the skill, experience and temperament to move us forward rather than backward or sideways. Richard Olson Falmouth

Gideon’s Freeport experience will pay off Sara Gideon and I served for five years together as trustees on the Freeport Community Services board. We co-chaired the annual Chowder Challenge twice and I witnessed her impressive organizational skills. Sara is an intent listener and someone who sticks by her values. Last fall she handled a difficult Town Council situation and more recently, Sara has acted in her role as a councilor and concerned parent to work with the PORT Teen Center to overcome a financial crisis. By bringing together key elements in our community, she demonstrated her ability to solve problems through reaching

out and coordinating available resources. A candidate for the Legislature should have had “hands-on” local leadership experience and a real sense of community. Sara has both, and will be a strong model for bipartisanship as well. Carol Southall Freeport

Falmouth should back Conroy-Vella, school budget I’m writing to urge people to support Deirdre Conroy-Vella for Falmouth School Board. Dee and I are founding members of the Falmouth Music Parents Association, both have children in the Falmouth school system and share a desire to see the success of our schools continue. Dee is a strong supporter of a student-centered budget, financial transparency, and continued excellence in the education of our children. She is a strong supporter of the proposed budget and feels that it stands to promote everything that is good about our schools and our community. I am confident that she would bring a strong work ethic, great dedication, and her love for Falmouth to the board. Please cast your votes on June 12 for Deirdre Conroy-Vella for School Board and yes to the proposed school budget. Caryn Bickerstaff Falmouth

her six years of service to the town on the School Board she demonstrated the ability to listen, to weigh the facts, and then to make the best decision she could considering all of the circumstances. The value of her contributions to the town as chairwoman of the Elementary School Building Committee, and leading in the selection of the School Superintendent in 2010, is in the results: a great building well under budget, and a superintendent who earned national recognition for high-performing schools. As a member of the council Karen Farber will bring her voice of reason to bear on each issue. She has earned my vote, and I hope yours. Mark Terison Falmouth

Sachs motivates a disillusioned voter

Politics. Just the word brings negative thoughts to my mind. I, like many Americans, often take our freedoms for granted. Elections have come and gone that I have not used my right to vote. Signs pollute the roadways around election time. Red, blue, green, rainbow. One big popularity contest. I moved to Freeport with my family a few years ago and we have met some wonderful people. You know, the people who remember you after just one meeting. They remember your spouse’s name and your kids' names. Genuine people, real people. If you want a genuine, honest, caring, very hardworking, real person to represent you, then please vote for Melanie Sachs, Democratic candidate in House District 106, Freeport and Pownal. This year I pull my head out from under the rock and exercise my right to vote. Please do the same by supporting Melanie Sachs. Stephen Young Freeport

Re-elect Campbell to SAD 51 board Please vote to re-elect Karen Campbell to the SAD 51 School Board on June 12. Karen and I have known each other for six years, volunteering together on a variety of school and community activities. Karen is a pragmatic leader who makes consistently good and balanced decisions. Her strong education (B.S. in business administration from Stonehill College and MBA in strategic human resources from the University of Texas at San Antonio) and 10plus years of human resources management experience have proven valuable to SAD 51 during her term on the board. Karen is a thoughtful leader who calmly tackles difficult issues with collaboration, good judgment, and resolve. She is fully committed to our community and our children. I trust Karen Campbell to make good decisions on behalf of our children’s educations and our broader community. Mary Wright Cumberland Foreside

Anderson has right experience for Falmouth What Falmouth needs for governance is no difference from any other community. We need leadership with a vision of long term financial health and stability. Russ Anderson has done it. After a successful privatesector career, Russ served as president of the Maine Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Russ stepped into a challenging situation. How to maintain service levels and balance a budget during an increasingly difficult fundraising environment? He was again successful. Meeting the needs of the town and curtailing escalating costs is a tall order. This is no time for "on the job training." Let’s entrust decision making to proven track records. Russ Anderson has such a track record and will represent our town responsibly. John Edwards Falmouth

Sachs in District 106 Democratic primary Melanie Sachs is the right choice as state representative for District 106, Freeport/Pownal. Melanie has worked tirelessly for years as both a professional and community volunteer. In her professional and nonprofessional roles she has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to be an advocate for children, families, and her community. In Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, as well

as in all her other community outreach roles, she has proved to be knowledgeable, dedicated, hardworking and selfless. Her talents as a leader are evident. She is an excellent communicator, a creative problem solver, and an attentive listener. Her understanding of the political climate at the local, state, and federal level is impressive. I saw this firsthand during a recent visit to the Statehouse as she effortlessly discussed issues with our legislators. Melanie will be a priceless addition to our state Legislature. Please join me in voting for Melanie on June 12. Jennifer Libsack Freeport

Sachs is best choice for Freeport, Pownal Informed by breadth and depth of relevant personal and professional experiences, Melanie Sachs is clearly our most substantive Democratic candidate in House District 106. A lifetime dedicated to hands-on work in the field of health and human services, with and among the people of Maine, has fostered her instinctive understanding of socioeconomic dynamics in local, state, and federal contexts. She has facilitated collaborative networks within all sectors and initiated systemic change. Melanie’s collective skills particularly in the realms of policy and management, and authentic insight cultivated by longstanding commitment to volunteering and public service, are essential attributes for our state representatives. She consistently articulates logical, comprehensive approaches to the full range of complex issues central to Maine’s vitality and competitiveness. Undistracted by career or political interests, she is poised as a proactive, confident leader and effective, respected legislator. Send Melanie Sachs’ productive influence to Augusta. Kristen Dorsey Freeport

Anderson will excel on Falmouth council I recommend that Falmouth vote for Russ Anderson because I’ve seen him successfully manage a business while he was president of the Woodlands Club; I know from my working with him that he has strong financial skills, listens to all options and is not afraid to make tough decisions; he understands that any operation needs highly qualified employees in order to operate effectively. His priorities for Falmouth are what we need in these difficult economic times: strong commitment to public safety; high-quality school system, managed in a costeffective manner; well-maintained roads, facilities and

Campbell deserves re-election to SAD 51 board

I support Karen Campbell for re-election to the SAD 51 School Board. A mother of 3 Greely students, Karen has been directly involved in the school system throughout her children’s education. As a classroom volunteer, active member of the PTO, Arts Alliance, Foundation51, and numerous Booster organizations, Karen is well versed in the district’s educational, artistic, and athletic programs. Her awareness of the increased expectations student face makes her a valuable School Board member. Having Karen as one of our board members has made me aware and willing to be engaged in our community. When I have wanted answers to many questions, she has empowered we with information. Karen’s priorities are to ensure the educational needs of all children are met, our students are prepared for future challenges they will face, and the investment that is asked of our community is appropriate and affordable. Please re-elect Karen Campbell. Lourdes D’Escoubet-Nason Cumberland Foreside

Campbell for Cumberland school board seat

School Administrative District 51 is a high-performing school district, in large part due to the engagement and involvement of its community. Karen Campbell is one of those engaged and involved community members. When first elected to the board in 2009, Karen hit the ground running. She immediately turned her attention to structuring an effective communication plan to keep the community informed, helped the Board address the District’s long term sustainability – one of the most difficult and complex issues facing our schools – and was elected this year by her fellow board members as vice chairwoman. Having served on the School Board, I believe re-electing Karen would provide the continuity important and necessary to the effective leadership of our schools. But more than that, re-electing Karen would keep someone in that position with the demonstrated experience and dedication to SAD51 and the community it serves. Please join me in re-electing Karen Campbell. Susan M. Campbell Cumberland

Thurber in register of probate primary

Norton in District 106 Democratic primary

Nancy Thurber for Cumberland County register of probate. Most of us don’t get involved with probate all that often, but when we do, neatness counts. Nancy Thurber is neat – as a person and as a title abstractor. Her service has provided many reliably accurate reports for my clients as a title lawyer. Nancy holds to the highest standard of detail and accuracy. I have no doubt she will run a tight ship and provide the public with efficient and competent service at the Cumberland County Probate Court. If you vote in the primary scratching your head, “register of what?,” consider Nancy Thurber for a vote that will count when it counts. Sam Kilbourn Freeport

I urge District 106 voters to support Patrick Norton in the June 12 Democratic primary. As a former state representative and former deputy commissioner of the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, I knew and worked with Pat for 22 years in his role as a nonpartisan legislative analyst, including his six years as director of the Legislature’s Office of Policy and Legal Analysis. During my years as chairman of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Pat worked tirelessly with us on some of the toughest environmental issues faced by the state. Also, as chairman of the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee, I relied on Pat’s professional assistance in committee staffing, policy analysis and his knowledge of fish and wildlife laws. Pat understands how the Legislature works. He would be an outstanding representative for District 106 and I urge your vote for Pat in the primary. Paul F. Jacques Waterville

Falmouth candidate has ‘extreme’ views

Falmouth citizens should be aware of Town Council candidate Bryan Dench’s history of anti-gay and antiabortion rights activism. Dench has served as the treasurer for the Maine State Right of Life Political Action Committee, and is the co-author of an anti-abortion screed entitled “Fetal Holocaust,” which argues that abortion should be illegal even in cases of rape or incest. A vocal opponent of marriage equality, Dench published a letter in The Portland Press Herald defending what he called the "common-sense objection" that “homosexual relations cannot be considered natural or normal.” Not surprisingly, Dench isn’t talking about his extreme views in his campaign ads.

What’s a Mainer? Find out at the lobster museum These missives never come out the way I want, and by “the way I want” I mean, “as good as I want.” A recent column was supposed to be about learning to respect Maine and being The View more accepted by native Mainers for it. It turned out to be mostly anecdotes describing how I patronized Mainers on my first visit here and how they ran rings around me without me even knowing it. Missing the bull’s eye is one thing. Missing the whole target is embarrassing. Oh, well, call it an introduction. It’s true that Mainers made no secret of their “us Mike Langworthy against them” mentality 30 years ago. We heard many variations of the old saying: real Mainers had to be born here, and maybe their parents

From Away

and grandparents before them. Most people said it with a smile, but they were, as my grandfather might have said, “kidding on the square.” I can understand why. If I was any example, people from away would say they loved Maine without knowing a damned thing about it or the people who lived here. They came mostly to resort areas, mostly on the coast, mostly in the summer. The Mainers they met were serving dinner or selling souvenirs. Did summer people wonder where their waiters lived or what the clerk at that cute boutique in Camden did after work or how they managed to survive the eight months in between seasons? Doubt it. I know I never did. My attitude shifted during my second trip here, on a belated honeymoon. It was summer again. Our room overlooked Penobscot Bay. The stage was set for another superficial week eating seafood in the only state I’ve ever been in that actually looks better than the postcards. By chance we were staying at a bed and breakfast near one of Maine’s many small museums. There’s a difference between Maine and the other places I’ve been: mom and pop museums. This one was about

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/124788

when Maine was a hub of intercontinental shipping during the age of sail. I’m not talking about the glamorous clipper ships. Maine sent out the deep-bottomed trading vessels that did the heavy lifting. They were built here, I learned, and had captains and crews from here. They went to sea for months, even years at a time. I learned they were nearly self-sufficient, floating kingdoms ruled by captains and their wives. Yeah. These guys took the whole family with them. At sea they had the power of life and death. They needed to. There was nobody to call for help if they got in trouble. When they got back, those captains were often rich men. The crews made out pretty well, too. If they got back. Maine wasn’t always Mexicali Rose and lobster roll country. Those quaint small towns were founded by resourceful, independent people who derived satisfaction from confronting the challenges of a beautiful and remote place. continued next page

Online dating in Portland: The good, the bad, the very ugly By Nina Allen The last time I was in the man-meeting market, looking for dates was as easy as: 1 — Head to the convenience store and buy a copy of Casco Bay Weekly ($1). 2 — Sit at the typewriter (with no correction key) and compose a witty, charming, thoughtful, exciting yet mysterious ad that will capture the eye of every single guy. 3 — Jump in the car, head over to the post office (gallon of gas: $1.07). 4 — Wait for the ad to appear in the once-a-week paper. 5 — Wish, hope, and pray the kind folks at CBW will find a free moment to collect my 100 responses, stuff them in a large envelope and forward to my home address. 6 — Get the package! Sit down! Open each envelope (what?? only 15??) with bated breath. First one: uh, what’s with the spelling? Second one: ohmygod, does this guy live on hamburgers and fries? Third one: he lives in Calais? You get the picture. Simple, right? Well, not terribly simple, but good enough to meet my now ex-husband. Fast forward 20 years. Wow, have things changed.

I want someone to snuggle with. Chemistry is important. Bye-bye, “Hank.” The Bad: His name is “Dick.” The profile was short, but the photo – oh, the photo.

Yup, not a one. Well, I didn’t check the molars. Perhaps he has a few. Maybe not.

The View from Away from previous page We went to an even smaller museum that sounds like a tourist cliche: a lobster museum. I’m embarrassed to say this, but I actually thought this would pretty much round out my education. I know what you’re thinking: “Really, Mike? A lobster museum? Could you be any shallower?” In my defense, at least I didn’t make the Hajj to Freeport and call it a day, walking out of L.L. Bean saying, “OK, we’ve done Maine. If we hurry we can learn about all about New Hampshire and Vermont before dinner.” Going through that small, not very fancy museum I got to experience a Mainer’s pride in being a Mainer. Our guide looked like she was fixing traps five minutes before the tour. She didn’t have a polished, memorized presentation, but she sure knew lobsters and lobster fishing. What struck me most, though, was her opening. I don’t remember it word for word, but this is close: “My husband is a lobsterman, and I’m a lobsterman’s wife. If you hear somebody say, ‘lobster fisherman,’ you correct him because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” I don’t know if that’s really true, but she said “lobsterman’s wife” with such pride, and something else, too, defiance maybe, or a kind of urgency. She seemed to want us summer folk to know that they weren’t extras in our vacation movies. They were living a life they had chosen, not an easy one, but an independent one, an extension of whatever made an earlier generation go down to the sea in ships, a life they were proud of. It probably seems silly, but that woman helped make Maine a completely different place for me. Here’s my crackpot theory, then: the “us versus them” mentality is diminishing in part because more people from away have had their versions of my lobster museum moment. They’ve seen past the lighthouses and boutiques of postcard Maine, and Mainers have responded by becoming more inclusive. I say good for both sides. Unless the natives are still running rings around me without me even knowing it, in which case I say curse their Downeast inscrutability, and curse me and my Midwestern thickheadedness.

Invasion of the giant hogweed Man, oh man, what are we going to do about the invasion of the giant hogweed? Standing 14 feet tall, the giant hogweed is the latest terrorist threat Mother Nature has thrown our way. Its clear sap can cause third-degree burns when it comes in contact with skin and blindness if it gets in your eyes. But its only harmful in sunlight. Stephen King couldn’t make up something like this. It’s weeds gone wild. Native to the Caucasus region and Central Asia, giant hogweed was a favorite of Victorian gardeners in Europe and America. Its imposing height, broad leaves, and floral The Universal umbrellas made it an ornamental superstar, “Queen Anne’s lace on steroid” as one horticulturist put it. In recent years, giant hogweed (so-called because pigs can apparently eat it with impunity) has raced across New York and New England. It’s been found in 20 places in Maine already. Locally, its been spotted in Edgar Allen Beem Sebago, Windham, and West Falmouth, so keep your eyes open (or closed, as the case may be), because it’s heading our way. “Here, piggy-piggy! Come eat this invasive species.” “Invasive species” has long struck me as a curious social construct, one that assumes some elements of nature do not belong in nature. More to the point, the designation “invasive species” assumes that human beings can control nature, are not themselves parts of nature and, in any event, should not be moving plants and animals around where they don’t belong. It’s that “where they don’t belong” idea that fascinates me. Just as a weed is any plant growing where humans don’t want it, an invasive species is

Notebook

any living thing that exists where we don’t want it. (As a personal aside, I have been trying to get Bay Staters on Moody Beach and Republicans in Augusta listed as invasive species for several years now without success.) By now we are all familiar with that most feared of invasive aquatic plants, variable leaf milfoil, the lake-choking invader that now requires all boats entering Maine fresh waters to be inspected. Less well-known among the underwater invaders are fanwort, hydrilla, frogbit, pond weed and water chestnut. And we’ve actually gotten used to the purple loosestrife that has invaded every ditch along the interstate. Kinda pretty this time of year. Lately, I have begun to see signs warning of Maine’s ban on all out-of-state firewood, a suspected infiltration route for the Asian longhorn beetle and emerald ash borer. (The fact that the emerald ash borer and I share the same initials – EAB – is purely coincidental.) Any day now, I expect Maine’s tea party libertarian/constitutionalists to attack the firewood ban as an infringement on individual liberty and an unconstitutional taking. Remember the good old days when we only had to worry about gypsy moths deforesting millions of acres? Now we’ve got to be on the alert for European fire ants, green crabs, common periwinkles, Rapa whelks, northern pike, giant hogweed, and giant African land snails. Believe it or not, the Maine Department of Agriculture lists the giant African land snail (aka GALS) as a pest. I guess a snail the size of a football would be, wouldn’t it? Which reminds me, you should see the size of some of the slugs in our backyard. Carolyn put me in charge of slug patrol while she is in Japan for two weeks. It’s a losing battle. And I sure hope the Japanese beetles don’t get here before she does. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

WHATTHEHECKISAN ‘ORGANICMATTRESS’? ANDWHAT’STHEBIGDEAL? The big deal is that the modern family should be sleeping on organic mattresses because the typical mattress you buy contains: • Polyurethane • Stain-resistant and flame-retardant chemicals • Cotton grown with pesticides • Latex made from petroleum Guess how many of those are in an organic mattress? Zero. And ... it’s hypoallergenic.

The Rangers got wins from Jessica Wilson in the 800 (2 minutes, 28.01 seconds), Kirstin Sandreuter in the mile (5:11.31) and two-mile (11:36.98), Abby Bonnevie in the pole vault (9 feet, 6 inches), Emily Saunders in the triple jump (35-5.25) and the 3,200 relay team (10:11.52).

Valley (5-7) in the quarterfinals Thursday. Yarmouth wound up second in Western B with a 10-2 mark following a 5-0 home victory over NYA last Tuesday. The Clippers will welcome No. 7 Fryeburg (6-6) in the quarterfinals. Greely is the No. 3 seed with a 9-3 mark, its first winning record since 2008. The Rangers closed with a 5-0 victory at Freeport and a 3-2 home win over Fryeburg. Greely is home with No. 6 Cape Elizabeth (7-5) in the quarterfinals. Freeport (2-10 and 14th in Western B) and NYA (4-8 and 10th in Western C) fell short of the playoffs. It was the first time

the Panthers failed to qualify since 1997. On the boys’ side, Falmouth also went 12-0 and is No. 1 in the Heals. The Yachtsmen closed with 5-0 victories over Fryeburg, York and NYA. Falmouth is home against either No. 8 Yarmouth (4-8) or No. 9 Mountain Valley (4-8) in Thursday’s quarterfinal round. The Clippers qualified for the first time since winning the Class B title in 2009. Freeport qualified for the first time since 2006 after winding up 4-8 and seventh in Western B. The Falcons go to No. 2 Lincoln Academy (12-0), a team they don’t see in the regular season, in the quarterfinals.

Greely wound up 1-11 and 11th and fell short of the playoffs. In Western C, NYA punched its postseason ticket for the first time in five years after going 7-5, good for the ninth and final spot. The Panthers went to 7-5 Madison in Tuesday’s preliminary round. If victorious, NYA would face top-ranked St. Dom’s (12-0) in the quarterfinals Thursday. The playoffs continue Saturday with the semifinal round on the courts of the higher remaining seeds. The regional finals are Wednesday at Bates College in Lewiston. The state finals are Saturday, June 9, at Colby College in Waterville.

A pair of Falmouth players made it to the finals of the singles tournament, but both were ousted there. In the boys’ competition, Justin Brogan, seeded second, advanced courtesy wins over North Yarmouth Academy’s Burke Paxton (who had won his first match, 6-3, 7-5, over Marshwood’s Jackson Towle), 6-1, 6-0, St. Dom’s’ Zach DeBlois, 6-1, 6-0, Waynflete’s Isaac Salas, 6-0, 6-0, and third-ranked Matt Gilman of Cape Elizabeth, 6-1, 6-3. But in the final, Brogan had no answer for No. 5 Jordan Friedland of Lincoln Academy continued page 26

Falmouth fell behind quickly at Freeport, 2-0, Saturday, but roared back with 12 unanswered runs. A clutch two-run double by Powers tied the score and opened the floodgates in the top of the third. The go-ahead run came in on an error and the Yachtsmen finished with four runs in that frame, added another in the fourth before erupting for six in the fifth to put it away. Falmouth went on to victory behind a 13hit attack, a home run from Beressi, four turned double plays on defense and a sixhitter by Thomas Fortier. “We just tried to stay calm, cool and collected,” said Powers. “We have so many weapons on offense. We’ve gotten a lot of wins, but a lot of our wins have come late. It was nice to get some runs early.” “We weren’t concerned,” Beressi said. “It was early in the game and we knew we could come back. Once one person gets the bats going, everybody followed.”

“It was a great game,” said Falmouth coach Kevin Winship. “Our offense hasn’t been there the way we’d like it to be the past few games. Today, we just competed and we came around. We showed we can come back and battle.” The Yachtsmen took a 13-2 mark into their regular season finale Wednesday against visiting Gray-New Gloucester. “I feel really good,” said Beressi. “We’re doing really well. I’m confident. I think we have a good chance in the playoffs.” “I’m pretty sure we’re going 2 or 3,” added Winship. “We’re just happy to be in the playoffs. We’ll see what happens. We’re playing great baseball. They’re a great group of kids. They’ve worked hard since we started back in March. We’ll keep it going. We’re looking forward to good playoffs.” Yarmouth began the week fourth with a 9-6 record. Last week, the Clippers were blanked at home by Freeport, 7-0, then bounced back for a 6-4 triumph at Falmouth. Against the Falcons, Yarmouth couldn’t get the bats going, mustering six harmless hits. “Our compete level wasn’t very good after the third inning,” Clippers coach Marc Halsted said. “We had nice BP, good pregame. We were on them early. Five of our first nine guys hit the ball hard, but from there on out, our compete level wasn’t good.” At the Yachtsmen, Ryan Cody held the opposition at bay with a strong relief stint and had a clutch two-run double to put Yarmouth ahead to stay. Thomas Sullivan, Mike Smith, Max Grimm and Eamon Costello all had one RBI. Caleb Uhl scored twice and had two hits. Yarmouth finished the regular year at home with York Wednesday. Freeport finished the regular season 10-6. The Falcons won at Yarmouth, 7-0, last Wednesday, then closed with home losses to Fryeburg (2-1, in nine innings) and Falmouth (12-2). In the win, Freeport produced a dozen hits, broke open a close game with a five-run sixth inning uprising and got another stellar effort on the mound from senior Sawyer Williams as it swept the

Recap from page 22 Clippers for the first time since 2004. “(Yarmouth’s) a great team, but to be honest, I think we’re better and I think we showed that today,” Williams said. “We always battle. We’re always fighting.” “Sawyer did a fabulous job,” Falcons coach Hank Ogilby said. “I liked how aggressive our lineup was all the way through.” Freeport���s bats went cold against the Raiders as they struck out 15 times (nine looking) in a frustrating extra inning setback. “(That) was a disaster,” Ogilby said. “We just stopped swinging the bats.” Against the Yachtsmen, Josh Weirich and Kaleb Farmer clubbed early home runs for a 2-0 lead, but the Falcons didn’t score again. “We were OK at the plate,” said Ogilby. “We hit those couple home runs, but (Fortier) settled down and we couldn’t hit the ball hard. I told them today to get their swings in. We were more aggressive. We had bonehead plays in the field that didn’t help us. (Falmouth’s) a very good hitting club. Our top two pitchers were ineligible, so we went to the bullpen and they can hit well. Every time we put people on base, they made us pay for it. That was the big difference.” Freeport produced its best regular season record since an 11-5 mark in 2003. “It’s not the end,” said Ogilby. “We’ll take a break, take a rest. I think we’ll get back to some fundamentals. You think as the season goes on you have all these good things in place, but sometimes they can slip. We have to fix a couple things. “It’s been a lot of fun, other than today. When you have the attitude where you think you can win, it just changes the whole dynamic. As opposed to showing up and trying not to get 10-run ruled, or hoping you might win, these guys

show up really feeling they can win. We haven’t done it the past two days, but it’s a different feeling and it’s fun.” The Falcons (seventh in the Heals at press time) will take part in the playoffs for the first time since 2004. They last won a postseason game in 1985. “I don’t know who we’re going to draw,” Ogilby said. “Sawyer’s pitching well for us. He can keep us in any game. It’s just a question of can our lineup hit?” The baseball playoffs begin with the preliminary round Tuesday. The quarterfinals are June 7 and the semifinals June 9. All rounds will be held on the field of the highest remaining seed. The Western B Finals are Wednesday, June 13, at St. Joseph’s College. The state finals are Saturday, June 16.

Softball Greely’s softball team had a chance to earn the No. 1 seed for the playoffs when it hosted defending champion Fryeburg Wednesday (please see theforecaster.net for full game story). The Rangers entered the showdown with a 14-1 mark and a slight Heal Points edge on the Raiders.

Freeport senior Josh Weirich throws a pitch during the Falcons’ 12-2 home loss to Falmouth Saturday.

Recap from page 23 and drove in three runs and Edith Aromando added three hits and three RBI. Falmouth was clinging to the 12th and final playoff spot in Western B at press time. The Yachtsmen entered the week 8-7 after a 4-1 loss at Cape Elizabeth last Wednesday. Alli Carver had a pair of doubles in the defeat. Falmouth closed the regular season at home in a pivotal contest versus Gray-New Gloucester Wednesday. Yarmouth entered the week 4-11 and 14th and still clung to remote postseason hope after beating visiting Freeport (1-0) and host Sacopee (5-1) last week. Against the Falcons, Alex Sullivan threw a one-hitter. She also got the win against the Hawks, while Kallie Hutchinson had three hits. The Clippers closed at home with York Wednesday. Freeport finished the year 6-10, but was 15th in Western B as of press time and will likely fall short of the playoffs. Last week, the Falcons lost 1-0 at Yarmouth and 7-0 at home to Fryeburg, but closed with a 9-7 come-from-behind victory over visiting Sacopee, scoring five times in the sixth inning. The softball playoffs begin with the preliminary round Tuesday. The quarterfinals are June 7 and the semifinals June 9. All rounds will be held on the field of the highest remaining seed. The Western B Finals are Wednesday, June 13, at St. Joseph’s College. The state finals are Saturday, June 16.

Boys’ lacrosse Don’t look now, but the Falmouth boys’ lacrosse team is living up to preseason billing and appears championship worthy once again. Last week, the Yachtsmen made it 10 straight victories following a seasonopening loss at Cape Elizabeth with wins at York (15-5) and Yarmouth (12-6). Against the Wildcats, Charlie Fay had five goals, while Hunter LaFond and Mitch Tapley each had three. Falmouth trailed at the Clippers, 3-2, after one quarter and had to start the second period killing a three-minute stick penalty, but the defense rose to the occasion and the Yachtsmen gradually pulled away behind three goals each from Fay and Willy Sipperly, two goals and two assists from Tapley, nine saves from goalie Cam Bell and an all-around solid team effort. “I have to credit (senior defenseman) Mike Ryan,” said Sipperly. “He leads the defense. Cam made some big saves too.” “I think (the three-minute stick penalty) was huge and I think it swung the momentum to our side,” Ryan said. “It was bad we had to deal with it, but after, I was glad it happened because our defense was pumped for the rest of the game. It kept our heads in it. We were more focused than normal. We had to be locked in, more than in a man-to-man situation.” “It was a critical point in the game,” Falmouth coach Mike LeBel added. “Luckily, we’ve been working more on our man-up, man-down lately. I wondered if it was a smart move and after this game, I know it was. In the past, we haven’t had many man-up or man-down situations. To spend as much time as we did, I wasn’t sure if we used our time wisely, but our man-down needed that

www.theforecaster.net

attention. We practiced it a lot lately. I’m not surprised it was as successful today as it was.” Falmouth only needed to beat visiting North Yarmouth in its finale Wednesday to lock up the top seed in Western B for the third year in a row. “It’s a great time to be peaking right before the postseason,” Ryan said. “We’re all really hungry. Especially us seniors.” “I want to play at home,” LeBel added. “I don’t want to go to Cape. No one wants to go and play at Cape. The kids are more comfortable at home. I think we play our best lacrosse there.” Greely will probably be the No. 3 seed in Western B. The Rangers improved to 7-4 Friday with a 12-9 home win over Waynflete. Brooks Belisle, Fred Bower, Mitch Mullen, Brendan Trelegan and Paul Witte all had two goals. Sam Reed made 14 saves. Greely closed at home versus York Wednesday. In Eastern B, Yarmouth and NYA are in line to play at least one home playoff game. The Clippers fell to 7-4 with a 12-6 home loss to Falmouth Friday. Ian Edgecomb scored twice and Alex Kurtz made 10 saves, but an inability to score with a three-minute man-advantage in the second period and a 21 minute, 24 second drought spelled doom. “Our man-up really struggled tonight,” said Yarmouth coach David Pearl. “We need to solve that, especially when we have a three-minute locked in penalty. We grew up again tonight. I’m much prouder of how we played tonight compared to the first time we played (Falmouth). I think a lot of the game we went toe-totoe. At times, there’s beautiful lacrosse being played. I don’t think the score reflects at all how evenly matched we are. I think we can beat that team. I hope we get to see them in the postseason. I really would like that for these boys.” The Clippers were third in Eastern B and had a chance to move up, but needed to spring an upset Wednesday at Cape Elizabeth (please see theforecaster.net for game story). Reigning regional champion NYA sat fourth at 6-5 at press time after a 12-5 win at Freeport and a 10-4 home loss to Cape Elizabeth last week. Jacob Scammon scored twice, Wesley Nolan made 15 saves and the Panthers won the fourth quarter, 3-0, against the Capers. “We’ve been leaning on Wes all season,” said NYA coach Peter Gerrity. “He did it again today. He made some saves he probably had no business making. It helps to have him in there.” NYA closed at Falmouth Wednesday. It will likely be the No. 4 seed for the playoffs. “The first game will be home unless there’s an upset,” Gerrity said. “I feel like we’re on an upward trajectory. I hope that continues. I hope we can show other teams that we are.” Freeport was ninth at 2-9 at press time, but only eight teams qualify. The Falcons lost at home to NYA (12-5) and York (7-5) in recent action. Freeport closed at home versus Waynflete Wednesday. The boys’ lacrosse playoffs begin Wednesday with the quarterfinal round. The semifinals are Saturday, June 9 and the regional finals will be contested Wednesday, June 13. Each of those rounds are hosted by the highest remain-

Northern

ing seeds. The state championship games are Saturday, June 16, at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland.

Girls’ lacrosse On the girls’ side, Falmouth stole headlines last Tuesday with a historic win at the state’s premier power. The Yachtsmen went to Waynflete having never beaten the Flyers and when they fell behind early, 5-0, the outlook was grim, but Molly Ryan took over in the draw circle, winning 20 of 25 opportunities, and the offense came to life. A late surge pulled Falmouth within 7-6 at halftime and the Yachtsmen went ahead for good with 19:19 remaining when Geneva Waite took a pass from Alex Bernier and finished. Falmouth went on to win, 13-10, as Waite paced a balanced attack with four goals, Bernier scored twice and had five assists and seniors Vanessa Audet and Megan Fortier and junior Angela Mallis all added a pair of goals. “Once we got the first goal, we realized we could get back in it,” Mallis said. “That gave us momentum and a spark. It gave us an advantage.” “It feels amazing,” Bernier said. “It’s a great feeling. I’m really happy. We’ve never had a big lead like that on Waynflete. I was shocked it was happening. It’s big for confidence. We hope to see them later on in the playoffs. Hopefully next time we’ll come out harder.” “Finally!” added Yachtsmen coach Robin Haley. “It feels really good. It was a fun win. It was a really hard-fought game. We played with a lot of composure throughout and didn’t get frazzled.” Falmouth didn’t suffer a letdown two days later when it dominated visiting NYA, 18-6, behind five goals from Audet and four from Fortier. “Our team is really spread out scoringwise,” Audet said. “It’s pretty tough for the other team.” Falmouth (10-1) is in a heated three-way fight in Western B, where arguably the three best teams in the whole state reside. The Yachtsmen were third behind Cape Elizabeth and Waynflete entering the week, but

25

could leapfrog all the way to first if they beat the Capers in their finale Tuesday. “We still have work to do,” said Audet. “Cape’s the biggest game we have, other than Waynflete. We have to keep it up. We work so hard to get homefield. It’s a big deal.” “It’s hard to tell (about Heal Points),” Haley said. “There’s a possibility we won’t be first even if we beat (Cape). It’s quirky.” Greely is playoff-bound for a second year in a row. The Rangers were fifth in Western B with a 5-6 mark heading into their finale at Freeport Tuesday, where they could leapfrog York into fourth place with a win. Friday, Greely romped at Fryeburg, 18-3, behind five goals from Audrey Parolin and three from Etta Copenhagen. In Eastern B, Freeport began the week on top of the Heals with a 6-5 mark. Last week, the Falcons edged visiting York, 109, in overtime. Alex Mitch tied the game with 15 seconds to go. Bethanie Knighton had three goals, while Meredith Broderick and Jess Hench both scored twice. Molly Lane made 13 saves. Freeport then outlasted host Wells, 17-13, in the fog, as Hench had five goals and Mitch added three. Lane made 10 saves. The Falcons closed the regular season at home versus Greely Tuesday. Yarmouth fell to 5-6 and third in Eastern B after a 17-7 home loss to Waynflete Thursday. Jeanna Lowery had four goals on Senior Night. “We just had a slow start,” said Clippers coach Dorothy Holt. “We made some costly turnovers and fouls in the first half. I’ve moved kids around trying to find the right match, but we’re getting there. Jeanna had a great game. We need those seniors to step up.” Yarmouth closed at NYA Wednesday. The Panthers began the week 1-10 and seventh in Eastern B (but only five teams qualify for the postseason). NYA last week got in the win column with a 17-6 home triumph over Fryeburg, then lost at Falmouth, 18-6. Katherine Millett had five goals, Olivia Madore four, Katie Cawley continued page 26

Recap from page 25 and Abby McKelvy three and Nikolle Storey made 17 saves in the win. Against the Yachtsmen, Cawley scored three times and Storey made 12 saves. “(Nikolle) really played the game of her life today,” NYA first-year coach Lynn Sullivan said. “She was happy. She needed that. The score won’t show it, but we were competitive. If you look at where we were the first game of the year with these guys to where we are now, we’ve made great improvement. The girls have learned a ton. They came off of this game feeling really

good about themselves and they should. They played a great game.” The Panthers closed at home versus Yarmouth Wednesday. It looks like NYA will miss the playoffs for the first time since 1999. “Beating Yarmouth would be a great way to end a challenging season,” said Sullivan. “The girls would be psyched. We’re a much different team than the first time.” The girls’ lacrosse playoffs begin Wednesday of next week with the quarterfinal round. The semifinals are Saturday, June 9 and the regional finals will be contested Wednesday, June 13. Each of those rounds are hosted by the highest remaining

seeds. The state championship games are Saturday, June 16, at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @foresports.

of Cape Elizabeth, 4-6, 6-7 (3). On the girls’ side, second-ranked Annie Criscione and No. 3 Analise Kump of Falmouth each made it to the semifinals before running into each other. Criscione was a 6-1, 6-3 winner over Olivia Lopes of Waterville, a 6-1, 6-0 victor over Deering’s Molly Gallagher and a 6-1, 6-1 winner over Shoshanna Moll of Belfast in her road to the semifinals. Kump defeated Mt. Desert Island’s Julia Christie, 6-0, 6-0, Brunswick’s Ali Stankiewicz, 6-1, 6-1, and Yarmouth’s Hannah Potter, 6-1, 6-0. In the semis, Criscione eliminated Kump, 6-1, 6-4, but in the finals, she dropped a tough 3-6, 6-4, 4-6 decision to top-ranked Maisie Silverman. Falmouth’s Olivia Leavitt, the No. 5 seed, also reached the semifinals. Leavitt won, 6-2, 6-0, over Mt. Ararat’s Sarah Hill, 6-0, 6-0, over Hall-Dale’s Wendy Goldman, and 6-1, 6-0, over No. 12 Emma Blakeley of Camden Hills. But in the semis, Leavitt couldn’t counter Silverman and lost, 5-7, 6-0, 3-6. Prior to losing to Kump, Potter beat Portland’s Margot Andreasen, 6-1, 6-0, Kaitlyn Thompson of St. Dom’s, 6-2, 6-1, and No. 6 Addie Devine of McAuley, 7-5, 7-2.

States

Falmouth, Greely and Yarmouth take part in the Class B state meet Saturday at Mt. Desert Island. “At states, we feel the girls can score in spots,” said Paul. “Obviously, Jenna is the strongest. Hopefully we can pick up points from the others in the sprints, jumps and distance. We had a bunch of personal bests at Yarmouth and I think we can build on those. On the boys’ side, we are in the fight. York appears to be the team to beat. Waterville is still strong. Our quality is still going to score. If we can add to what Buhelt, Pryzant and Follo should do, we will be in good shape. Our relays may become more key and we do have potential to score in every area.” “The Waterville, York and Falmouth boys will stage an epic battle for state meet points,” Folan said. “The Waterville girls will be very hard to defeat at the same meet. The Greely girls will come ready to play, however. We hope to establish season bests in many events, and see where that leads us.” Freeport and NYA will compete in the Class C meet at Cony High School in Augusta.

Restaurants from page 1 temperature of 110 degrees. Four of the restaurants had top temperatures below 100 degrees, and one Wendy’s, in Brunswick, was a chilly 63 degrees. “That’s not very warm,” Sears said. The owner of the Wendy’s franchise in Brunswick said that the cool temperature was the result of a plumbing problem, which he repaired after he was made aware of it. It can be difficult for small, familyoperated restaurants to pay for the sometimes-expensive fixes to health problems such as low temperatures at bathroom sinks. But large fast-food chains seem to make enough money to address such issues. According to franchise information published by the company, the average annual sales volume of an established McDonald’s is $2.4 million. Sears said that, in the home, hand washing is a personal health decision. For a restaurant employee, however, that personal choice becomes a matter of public safety. “If you’re an individual, you’re putting yourself at risk,” he said. “An employee who is handling food for hundreds of people is putting them all at risk.” Restroom water temperature problems cropped up in at least two restaurants during their most recent state health inspections. The Wendy’s in Brunswick was cited in August 2009, when state health inspector David Libby noted that the hand sink water only reached a temperature of 90 degrees. This was one of 13 violations cited, many of which had to do with employee hand-washing procedures. In February 2012, state health inspector Joel Demers didn’t cite temperatures as a specific violation at the McDonald’s at 227 Route 1 in Falmouth, but he did document six other violations, including mold in the ice machine; in addition, he found that ice being used to cool milk containers was also being used for drinks.

Wash this way One thing that minimizes the chance of fecal matter finding its way into your mouth is proper hand washing. Sears said that, overall, technique and consistency are the most important components of washing. But he said having water at the proper temperature also plays a role. “It’s easier for people to wash their hands at the proper temperatures,” Sears said. “It’s generally going to help get some of the soap off. Soap binds to bacteria and stuff like that.” Hot water also softens both hands and dirt, which can play a big role, depending on what you’re cleaning off your hands. “You do get a little more emollient activity on the hands with the soap,” Sears said. “Try an experiment and wash your hands with cold water, and you’ll see.” Lisa Roy, the program manager for the state’s Health Inspection Program, said water temperature can also play a role in whether people use proper hand-washing techniques. “If the water’s cold, people aren’t as likely to wash their hands as long as they’re supposed to,” she said. This is important in the kitchen, but it’s especially important in the bathroom. “When you’ve used the restroom, you have potentially contaminated your hands

www.theforecaster.net Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/119814

with bacteria,” Sears said. “Our colon and our genital areas have a larger percentage of bacteria on them, and you can potentially get them on your hands.” There are no statistics that demonstrate how many illnesses are caused by improper hand washing. Sears said it’s almost impossible to track bacteria-caused illnesses back to their source, given the large numbers of potential disease sources a person contacts. “There are too many different variables,” he said. For two of the last three years on record, Maine’s incidence rates for infectious diseases were higher than the national average.

Requirements unmet Keeping the water warm enough for effective hand washing isn’t just a way to prevent disease transmission. It’s the law. Rebecca Walsh, senior program health manager, confirmed that state inspectors check the water temperatures when they visit restaurants. She said that state law specifies the temperature for kitchen hand-washing stations. Under the Maine food code, “a handwashing lavatory shall be equipped to provide water at a temperature of at least 43 degrees Celsius (110 degrees Fahrenheit) through a mixing valve or combination faucet.” “By extension, we require the same temperatures in the restrooms,” Walsh said.

Companies react Between April 19 and May 10, a reporter visited 14 Burger King, Wendy’s and McDonalds restaurants during times that ranged from early afternoon to early evening. At each location, the water was turned to its maximum heat for a period of two minutes, after which the temperature was recorded with a kitchen thermometer that was calibrated with the help of staff at a local culinary arts teaching program. Water temperatures were also measured at other fast-food restaurant chains that were not included in this report; they were found to be in compliance. Reactions from the burger chains varied. Edie Rydick and her husband, George, own two of the McDonald’s franchises that were identified as having water temperatures of approximately 104 degrees. When contacted early last week, Rydick initially said that she went to her restaurants to test the water temperatures and make sure that they were in compliance. She offered to meet with a reporter to demonstrate the level of compliance and how water temperatures are set and monitored. Later in the week, Kristel Wagner, a public relations manager representing McDonald’s, said in an email that Rydick had instead decided that a prepared statement from the company would be a more appropriate response, as “it will include the most accurate information and will represent all of the restaurants involved,” including the locations owned by Rydick. The prepared statement, by Sharon Hingley, operations manager at McDonald’s USA, said that the sinks are equipped to provide the proper temperatures, and questioned the methodology

May 31, 2012

Is your restaurant in compliance? These restaurant restroom sink water temperatures were recorded between April 19 and May 10. The state requires a minimum temperature of 110 degrees. McDonalds • 11 Gurnet Road, Brunswick: 144.3 degrees. • 1208 US Route 302 Portland: 122.4 degrees. • 227 US Route 1, Falmouth: 104.7 degrees. • 332 US Route 1, Portland: 104.3 degrees. • 154 Pleasant Street, Brunswick: 100.2 degrees. • 419 Gorham Road, South Portland: 80.4 degrees. used by The Forecaster. “None of the restaurants targeted by The Forecaster have been cited by the health department for any issues concerning water temperature over the last year,” Hingley said. “Restroom sinks in the restaurants are equipped to provide water of at least 110 degrees and results of The Forecaster’s samples could have been affected by sampling and handling procedures.” Hingley said that the company would continue to do what it takes to protect public health. “We will continue to work with our franchisees, their restaurant managers and the health department to ensure the continued operation of safe, clean restaurants,” she said. The idea that McDonald’s restaurants haven’t been cited for hand-washingrelated health concerns within the last 12 months is technically accurate, but misleading. Some of the restaurants have not been inspected at all within the last year. Three of the six restaurants cited in the survey were last inspected in 2009 or 2010. The most recent inspection for the Falmouth restaurant was in April 2009, when Libby, the Maine health inspector, reported that the hand sink water temperature was in violation, at just 89 degrees. Wendy’s and Burger King representatives pledged to investigate claims that their restaurants were not in compliance with the state’s health codes. Jason Gall owns 14 Wendy’s franchises in the area, including the four locations that were surveyed. When contacted, he said he had not heard about the issue in the past, but that he planned to promptly address the low water temperature at the Brunswick restaurant. He speculated that it could be a poorly functioning electric water heating system, or a needed repair that has gone undetected. “Either way, there’s probably a way to fix it, and we’re going to find out,” he promised. “We’re not doing it to save money. Food safety is probably the number one thing in ... our stores.” Two days later, Gall reported that the problem with the Brunswick location had been confirmed and addressed. “In our efforts to assess the problem, we discovered a faulty mixing valve in the water line servicing the bathroom sinks,” he wrote in an email. “The valve

Burger King • 132 Riverside St., Portland: 117.3 degrees. • 449 Route 302, Portland: 116 degrees. • 174 Bath Road, Brunswick: 98.9 degrees. • 375 Gorham Road, South Portland: 75.5 degrees. Wendy’s • 240 Maine Mall Road, South Portland: 139.5 degrees. • 206 Route 1, Falmouth: 108.2 degrees. • 617 Warren Ave., Portland: 106.9 degrees. • 232 Bath Road, Brunswick: 63 degrees.

Why warm water? From the FDA’s handbook on proper handwashing for food service employees: “Warm water is generally more comfortable than cold water and encourages handwashing for the recommended duration. The water temperature used in handwashing can also affect the solubility or emulsification of some soils. Warm water is more effective than cold water in removing fatty soils. An adequate flow of warm water will cause soap to lather and aid in flushing soil quickly from the hands.”

has been replaced and our latest reading in the bathroom sinks registered 113 degrees.” Denny Lynch, senior vice president of communications at Wendy’s, noted that the water temperatures are unlikely to be constant. “What you’ve seen is just a snapshot. It might be the case that you could have gone in there an hour earlier, and the temperature would have been fine,” Lynch said. Kristen Hauser, a spokeswoman for a marketing firm that represents Burger King, said that the company was beginning an investigation. “Please be assured that the health and safety of our guests is a priority for Burger King Corp., and the company is currently looking into the matter,” she said on Monday, May 15. On Friday, May 19, Hauser said that local locations had been contacted to ensure that they were in compliance with state requirements. Roy said that, in response to The Forecaster’s survey, the state’s Health Inspection Program would facilitate added education for the restaurants that aren’t in compliance. “We want to be proactive and do some education,” she said. “If this is what you’re finding, we definitely want to do some education.” Typically, Roy said, inspectors will not fail a restaurant for cold water. But they do document the violation; in some cases, the restaurant might be fined for a package of violations that includes low

Contract from page 2 workplace policies since the formation of RSU 5 in 2009. The Coastal Education Association is comprised of staff from Freeport, Durham, and Pownal.

Referendum from page 2 amount Superintendent Shannon Welsh will receive as a pay increase next year. But School Board Chairman Nelson Larkins said the reduction would be felt in other areas because Welsh’s increase to $114,700 annually is a contractual obligation. By adding $5,000 to a contingency fund contained in Article 6 for regular instruction, the remainder of a $20,000 funding gap at the teen center in the basement of the Freeport Community Center can be closed. The debate to add the money took 15 minutes, with Freeport Town Councilors Charlotte Bishop, James Hendricks and Sara Gideon all speaking in favor of the allocation. The Town Council increased its allocation to the center by $5,000 last week,

Laws relaxing A team of 11 state health inspectors are responsible for every restaurant in the state, in addition to various other types of businesses, such as tattoo parlors. Each inspector is responsible for hundreds of businesses, and the program struggles to stay on top of inspections. Faced with the challenge of enforcing health requirements in restaurants, the state in some cases is instead relaxing the laws. Maine state lawmakers recently changed a requirement that restaurants be inspected every year; instead, the goal is now to visit each establishment once every two years. In addition, the temperature requirement of 110 degrees may also be relaxed to 100 degrees, which would match the federal requirements of the Food and Drug Administration laid out in the 2009 Federal Food Code. “In the new proposed rules it’s going to be dropped to 100 (degrees),” Roy said. “They’re being proposed as we speak, and we’re going to be having a public hearing on them.” In Hauser’s statement on behalf of Burger King Corp., she said that it is in compliance with those federal standards, if not those of the state. “The health and safety of our restaurant guests is a top priority for BKC. Our food and safety standards are in-line with the latest FDA food code, requiring water used in hand-washing sinks to be at 100F,” she said. “The restaurants in question have been recently inspected and have met FDA requirements. As Maine standards are above those required by the FDA, BKC is currently working to meet local

The contract was unanimously approved by the RSU 5 School Board on May 9. Details of the contract will not be available until it is fully ratified, but Drolet and School Board Chairman Nelson Larkins have hinted at its contents. At the May 23 community meeting for the $24.9 million fiscal year 2013 RSU 5 budget, Larkins said efforts to create conforming pay scales throughout the district could lead to 10 percent raises for Durham

teachers. Drolet said one basis for disagreement between the board and union was whether contract elements such as the length of the school day are board-directed educational policy or contract provisions both sides must approve. Drolet said initial review of comments on affirmative votes show union members still have reservations about the deal. “I think the board knows people are not 100 percent giddy about this,” Drolet said. The two-day voting period was scheduled because union bylaws prohibit absentee voting. Drolet said at least one union mem-

Among those opposing spending school district money for the center was Pownal resident Michael Morin. “There is a slippery slope when we become a charity instead of a school,” he said. The $24.9 million budget, including funding for adult education programs, was dissected through 20 warrant articles detailing 11 “cost centers,” overviews of total spending and a written ballot seeking approval to exceed the proscribed state property tax limit in the Essential Programs and Services formula. By a 127-11 tally, district voters approved spending $4.19 million above the $15.89 million in locally raised revenue required by the state formula. The district will receive $3.82 million in state subsidies next year, an increase of $335,000.

The effect on local tax rates from the more than $490,000 increase in local tax commitments will not be fully determined until annual property valuations are completed in each town, RSU 5 Finance Director Kelly Wentworth said. Freeport Finance Director Abbe Yacoben estimated the school share in the entire municipal budget to be about $10.77 of an anticipated $15.45 to $15.50 rate per $1,000 of assessed value. Last year, the school share of the Freeport budget was $10.36 of the $15.20 tax rate. Officials in Durham and Pownal said they are waiting for updated information from the school district before estimating the affect of the budget on local property tax rates.

ber did not vote on May 22 because of a delayed flight. Some union members who are leaving the district at the end of the school year also did not vote, Drolet said. The tie was discovered almost by happenstance, Drolet said, when a marked ballot was discovered in a pile of blank ones. She said she was uncertain whether it was marked yes or no, but it did explain the tie. After the deadlock, Drolet said there was some discussion of returning the contract to the union negotiating team, but the time spent negotiating and the weariness of union members seeking a resolution called for a quick second vote. ‘We didn’t want the turmoil and emotional divisions,” she said. At the community meeting May 23 for the RSU 5 budget, voters approved increasing the contingency fund found in Article 6 for regular instruction by $174,000. At least some of that increase will help cover wage increases when a contract is approved, RSU 5 Superintendent Shannon Welsh said. One way or another, Drolet said she is ready for a clear result from the second vote. “It left everyone exhausted and laughing,” Drolet said about the tie.

Dench from page 1

campaign of attacks that have nothing to do with local Falmouth politics,” Dench said Tuesday. “I think it’s really an ugly attempt to discredit me based on conscientiously held views, that are shared by many people, that have nothing to do with my qualifications to serve as a town councilor.” The most recent attack against Dench came from resident Glen Brand, who wrote a letter to the editor claiming that Dench is actively involved in the Maine Right to Life Political Action Committee and that he co-authored an “anti-abortion screed” called “Fetal Holocaust.” The article, published without a date online by The Narrow Way Ministries, a conservative, Seventh Day Adventist website, argues that abortion is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and should be illegal even in the case of rape or incest. Dench said he was the treasurer of the

Maine Right to Life Political Action Committee, but that he hasn’t been involved with the committee, in any capacity, for more than 20 years. He also said he does Dench not recall co-authoring “Fetal Holocaust.” Brand said he wrote his letter so that people would know about Dench’s history before they cast their ballots on June 12. He said he doesn’t want to see “subterfuge politics” on the Town Council. “There is a history of candidates with extreme views, usually right-wing candidates who hide their views or don’t talk about them until they get in office, and then they start taking action,” Brand said. “They try to implement their agenda. We’ve seen this with school boards and town councils and that can cause a lot of heartache.” Brand was the second resident to pub-

licly call attention to Dench’s beliefs on polarizing state and national issues. Former Town Councilor Cathy Breen previously wrote a letter noting Dench’s published opposition to gay marriage two years ago. She suggested he should not be given the opportunity to use the Falmouth Town Council as a stepping stone to higher elected office. Dench this week said his personal beliefs on these issues will not impact the town of Falmouth and should not be brought into the council debate. He also said this type of campaigning has become the status quo for “one political party in particular.” “This is the way that one party in particular seems to conduct business,” Dench said. “They want to depict me as some kind of bad person. All they have to do is send this stuff in and it becomes an issue because they say so.” He said voters should know that he would be objective as a councilor and that his career of legal and government service

should speak for itself. Dench is chairman of the Skelton, Taintor & Abbott law firm in Auburn. His practice is centered around work with small businesses, town governments, school districts and other public entities, and his clients have included Sun Media Group, parent company of The Forecaster. He said he has been involved in municipal politics in some capacity wherever he has lived, serving on the boards of appeals in Auburn and Lewiston, as a moderator of Town Meeting in Poland, and on that town’s budget and long-range planning committees. “I would hope people would judge my ability to serve on the Town Council on my record of government and legal service,” Dench said.

from page 1

Cumberland. Both properties are between Mill and Wilson roads and in the Village Office Commercial Zone. A neighborhood meeting on the projects will be held at Town Hall at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 6. The Town Council will later send the proposals to the Planning Board, which will hold a public hearing and make a recommendation on the contract zone agreements for the council to consider. The Planning Board previously approved a business park on one of the properties, a 10.4-acre parcel owned by

Elvin Copp, about five years ago, Shane said last week. But the project failed to materialize. “We have tried unsuccessfully for five years to ... attract different businesses out into that corridor,” Shane said, noting that there has been more success with smaller businesses elsewhere on Route 100, but not the office commercial types the town was seeking. The town consequently discussed a different approach with Copp and Doris Wilson, who owns the other nearly 17acre property, aimed at addressing Cumberland’s need for affordable housing.

May 31, 2012

“Basically, we said, ‘well, if we’re going to do housing, let’s look at affordable housing, so that we could maybe get some housing stock in the community that kids coming back to the community or people just starting out could actually afford,’” Shane said. Both properties are under contract to be sold – Copp’s to Telos Capital of Portland, and Wilson’s to Walnut Hill Investments of North Yarmouth, Shane said. Single-family homes are not allowed in the Village Office Commercial Zone, but the council’s ultimate approval of contract zones would permit the housing; the approval would also allow more density than the zone allows.

The lots would each be about 20,000 square feet, with conventional septic systems, and would be serviced by public water, Shane said. According to preliminary numbers, the houses would sell for $175,000 to $225,000 and be between 1,400 and 1,700 square feet, he said. The median price of a home in Cumberland is $350,000. To be eligible for one of the homes, Shane said, total annual household income of the buyers must not exceed $101,220, which is 140 percent of the greater Portland area median income.
