schools. The spending plan is an increase of $192 over the current year. The school portion is almost $886,000, a decrease of

more than $2,000 from this year. Voters ratified the school spending plan Tuesday in a referendum, 90-52. Saturday’s Town Meeting

By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — About 50 of the town’s nearly 6,900 registered voters attended Tuesday’s Town Meeting to approve the school and municipal budgets. They approved 26 articles on the meeting warrant by a show of hands, including a $19.8 million school budget and $10.7 million municipal budget. In the only written-ballot decision, residents voted 39-4 for an article allowing the town to exceed the Essential Programs and Services funding cap by $3.5 million. The total budget for fiscal year 2012 is $31.4 million, an increase of $525,000, or nearly 1.1 percent, from this year. The tax rate is $20.29 per $1,000 of assessed value, an increase of 49 cents, or about 2.5 percent. After the 27 articles were passed, the meeting was adjourned until 7 a.m. next Tuesday, June 14, when voters will elect three town councilors, two School Committee members, two Water District trustees and decide whether to ratify the school budget. Voting will take place at the AMVETS Hall on North Road from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. At Town Meeting, Councilor Jeff Darrel was honored for his six years of service on the council, and Ed and Sue Ferrell were

Cumberland enacts retail moratorium along Route 1 Route 1. The council voted 6-1, with Councilor Jeff Porter opposed, on the suspension of retail and associated uses. The OCS zone runs along

Route 1, south from the intersection with Tuttle Road to the Falmouth line. Seven lots in about 20 percent of the zone could be developed for retail, Town Manager Bill Shane said.

Unsung Hero: Lisa Green, crossing-guard jester By David Treadwell BRUNSWICK — Just who is that crazy woman who stands on the corner of Maine Street and Longfellow Avenue every day, the one wearing all those funny hats and colorful costumes, always waving and smiling at cars? Sure, she’s a crossing guard, because she helps kids cross the street, but what’s up with the goofy garb and the happy face? Unraveling the mystery means visiting the home of Lisa Green, where you’re warmly greeted by Olivia and Miss Mabel, Green’s two robust and, it must be said, calorically enhanced English Bulldogs.

Unsung Heroes Part of a twice-monthly series of profiles by Brunswick writer David Treadwell about people who quietly contribute to the quality of life in greater Portland. Do you know an Unsung Hero? Tell us:

Green’s path to a crossing guard job was not exactly normal. “Normal people worry me,” Green said, laughing. She grew up Catholic in the heavily Mormon city of Salt Lake City, Utah. She was going to become a nun (“That didn’t work out”). So she focused on philosophy, continued page 40

Lisa Green, crossing guard at the corner of Longfellow and Maine streets in Brunswick, has a wave or a smile for nearly everyone who passes. Her habit of wearing funny hats began when she was clipped by a car. “The guy (who hit me) kept saying that he didn’t see me, so I decided to start making it impossible to not see me,” she said.

Cumberland cat shelter population exceeds capacity By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — Demand for its service is so great right now that the Homeless Animal Rescue Team, an adoption center and no-kill shelter for kittens and cats, has recently had to turn away felines. As of late last month the shelter had 130 cats, and more than 100 kittens were in care in foster homes, according to Sharon Bushey, HART vice president. “We try to keep the shelter at 125, but we’re not always successful,” she said on Monday. Bushey noted that more cats are expected in the next several weeks.

Dear Friends: It has been a privilege for me to run for Tow n Council. I want to thank everyone for their support thro ughout this campaign. I also want to thank and congrat ulate the other Town Council and School Board candidates for their hard work and dedication. It is a unique undertaking to run for any elected office and I am grateful for having this opportunity in a community as special as Falmouth. Over the last two months I have visited 1,00 0 homes across Falmouth on the weekends talking with vote rs about their priorities. Regardless of political party, I hav e found the vast majority of voters want to see civil discourse and thoughtful deliberation about the issues that impact us all. As a Maine native, business owner and father of four boys in our schools, that is exactly the approach I will bring to the Town Council. Falmouth has many opportunities ahead and together we can make them a reality. With dedication, hard work and cooperation there is nothing we can’t accomp lish. On Tuesday, June 14th I will be standing at the polls from open to close and I look forward to meeting every voter that turns out! See you there...

It says to people who come in here, ‘these people served their country.’”

Yarmouth publisher expands to e-books

By Alex Lear YARMOUTH — You can read the latest release from Islandport Press without even turning a page. Instead, you can turn on a Kindle, iPad, or Nook – devices used to read books electronically. “Abbott’s Reach,” a historical novel written by Bangor native Ardeana Hamlin, is Islandport’s first widespread e-book release. The company will continue to offer its books in traditional print format; “Abbott’s Reach” was released in print last month, and the electronic version came out May 13. But five of Islandport’s 10 new releases this year will be e-books. Publisher and founder Dean Lunt said the company remains committed to the printed book, but that “given the rapidly developing e-book technology and changing reading habits, all publishers, even small and regional presses, must begin developing and implementing an Forecaster X hope to survive.” e-book strategy12 if they “You’ve got to go where the readers

of North Bath,” a recent release written by the late Nancy Dearborne Loveterre, might at some point be released as an ebook, Lunt said. “We believe the e-book is still developing and changing, so we will remain very flexible and somewhat conservative in our approach to the format,” he said. “But there is no question that e-books are here to stay in a big way and we need to be in that market.” Islandport, which published its first book in 2000, is still working on plans to release its children’s book offerings electronically. The company does not plan to release any picture books in that format before 2012 or 2013. Melissa Kim, senior editor of children’s books, said Islandport wants to handle those books the right way. “We are working with extremely talented illustrators and authors and are committed to showcasing their work in the highest quality and best possible format, in a way that promotes reading and childhood literacy,” she said. The company will release one young adult publication, “Mercy: The Last New England Vampire,” this fall as an e-book. Lunt noted that “the outlets for (titles) like fiction are getting tougher for all presses, because as bookstores struggle, there are less options to get it out there.” Cutting out the printing and transportation of the physical book reduces costs, but development of the book – the authoring, editing and designing – remains an expense, Lunt said.

Expanded Bow Street Market open in Freeport By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — The building recently completed at Bow and School streets may look like a residential farmhouse and barn, but inside is a market filled with local meats and cheese, coffee, chocolate, wine and beer It is the new and improved Bow Street Market. Owner Adam Nappi said he and his wife, Sheila, are pleased with the new store. “This is better than we could’ve expected,” he said. Nappi’s parents Karen and John opened the original Bow Street Market in 1974, and Adam and his wife bought the business in 2002. Karen and John Nappi recently returned from Florida for the summer and are helping their son get ready for a grand opening event on June 11. “It’s a pleasure to see the store like this,” Karen said. “We are so happy to be here.” The new store is three times as large as the original, but Nappi said it was important to maintain the character of the old store. Customers will recognize the tall, tight aisles and local meats, Nappi said, but will appreciate the increased variety of items. “Everything in here is all about the customer,” he said. The entrance of the store is large enough for people to talk and there is another area where they can sit at a table, enjoy a cup of coffee, read a book or meet with friends, Nappi said. “The store is divided into two sections so people have to cross one another to Comment on this story at:

There is seafood, live local lobsters, rotisserie, deli meats, sushi, soups, a fresh salad bar and gluten-free items. Nappi said the centerpiece is the butcher shop area and the locally sourced produce, sauces, cheese, meat, pasta, ice cream and baked goods. “We learned a lot by going to farmer’s markets and found some of our vendors that way,” he said. “We made a commitment to providing local items for our customers and to support the local economy.” Nappi said Zachau Construction built continued page 39

On Friday from 4-4:30 p.m. there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony on School Street, followed by wine tasting. A 5K road race will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, followed by music by The Locals at noon.

Falmouth High School sending 8 students to art school By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — There are so many students in this year’s Falmouth High School graduating class going on to art school, it’s almost surreal. But for these eight who will graduate on Sunday, it is as realistic as it gets. Some will be studying painting, some fashion design and others architecture. Tyler Graffam only started seriously considering art this year, after he took Nancy Durst’s advanced art class. “I did photography before, but decided to take other art classes when the photography classes got dropped because of budgets,” he said. Graffam started painting and drawing, and managed to put together enough work to not only apply to art school, but get in. He’ll be attending the New Hampshire Art Institute next year. Emily Jackson said she loves drawing with pencil on gray paper, sort of muted sketches with a flair for drama. That drama is something she’ll need when she starts working on a degree in fashion design at Drexel University in Philadelphia next year. Eva Collins is headed off to fashion school as well, although she’ll be attending the Parson’s School of Design in New York City. Collins made her own prom dresses the past two years, and has made several

Courtney Procter, who said she loves sketching in black and white, will be heading to study architecture at Clemson University in South Carolina. “I really like black and white, there’s something about the contrast.

draw to that,” she said. Durst said her art students work hard and a recent art show was proof of their successes. The halls of the high school were full of sketches, paintings, sculpture and fashion. “Students here really work,” Durst said. “I feel like I’m the one who’s lucky. They make my job here fun.” Durst is collecting donations now to install a lighting system at the school to illuminate student work that is displayed in the theater lobby. Her campaign is called

“No More Art in the Dark,” and she has already received a $1,000 grant from the Falmouth Education Foundation. With another $4,500, she will be able to install the necessary lighting. Zoe McDorr knows all about lighting. She is heading to Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia in the fall to study photography. Her work, a collection of stunning portraits, is clearly her passion. “I like trying to capture someone’s personality in the photo,” McDorr said. Chris Stees said he would like to become an art teacher after he finishes his studies at the Maine College of Art in Portland. “Art is just a different expression of life. I want to show that to other people,” he said. Adrienne Pizzo and Anna Locke are also going to art school next year, at the Maine College of Art and Laboratory Institute of Merchandising in New York City, respectively.

Does Beem use paper products? Edgar Allen Beem exposed his liberal snobbery in his recent “Lurching toward LURC reform” commentary. In discussing easing regulations for land use in northern Maine, he states, “Some folks seem to think turning the North Maine Woods into toilet paper is its highest and best use.” I assume Mr. Beem uses toilet paper (if not, I would avoid shaking his hand). Where does he think toilet paper comes from? Does it show up in his bathroom every morning from the toilet paper fairies? His statement is demeaning to the hard-working people in forestry. At a time of 9 percent unemployment, Mr. Beem is more concerned about an imaginary Shangri-La of pristine forests in northern Maine than providing good jobs. I would bet that the closest Mr. Beem has been to the north woods is the Olive Garden in Augusta. Companies from Finland and Washington that I’ve worked with while I was in the printing industry, such as UPM and Weyerhaeuser, nurture, replant and manage their forest lands as well as Maine potato farmer. Finland and Washington state continue to have beautifully clear rivers and streams. As someone who writes for a newspaper printed on newsprint (and uses toilet paper), you would think Mr. Beem would be a supporter of paper companies and the men and women who rely on those jobs. But his self-interest in his political viewpoint and party line comes first. Craig Barnes Woolwich

Festival reflects best of Falmouth

I just wanted to thank all the volunteers who put together the Farewell Festival at the soon to be closed Lunt and Plummer-Motz schools over the weekend. So many volunteers participated in organizing the weekend activities. A lot of hard work went into making it so special, from the parade, to the food, the activities and the silent auction. It was great fun to go and participate, catch up with friends, meet new people of all ages and learn more about the town’s history. The space accommodated the crowds very nicely. It was great to see the town of Falmouth come together as a community and have some fun, celebrating all that this town has to offer. Celine Frueh Falmouth

Film captures Falmouth school pride

Dear cast, crew and now, audience: Thank you for helping me to create the short documentary about the great history of the Lunt and Plummer-Motz school buildings. These buildings, and their campus, have witnessed teaching, learning and play since 1931 (Plummer School) and 1941 (Lunt School). They are still going strong as I write this, but their walls don’t talk. I hope your memories, artifacts and generous contributions to the documentary will provide the broader Falmouth community with a sense of pride in our ability to connect face to face. If you were unable to attend the events this past weekend, I do hope you can tune in to send the buildings off with a fond farewell and an honorable closing via TV. Please look for this short documentary to be aired this week on Channel 2, your local free community access station right here in little ol’ Falmouth. Amy Winton Falmouth

Festival supports Falmouth schools The steering committee for the Farewell Festival: Saying Goodbye to Our Grand Old Schools celebration, marking the closing of the Plummer-Motz and Lunt Schools in Falmouth, would like to thank all of the people and organizations that made this two-day event possible. All of our volunteers, attendees, donors, sponsors, performers, marchers, bidders, staff, students, and alumni made this celebration a huge success. Nearly 2,000 people participated in and attended the festivities. Despite fears of selling out, no one was turned away at the gate and a great time was had by all. This was a fabulous showcase for our educational programs. It is impossible to list here the nearly 300 individuals who made this event happen. We appreciate Joe Cupo serving as our master of ceremonies for the commemoration ceremony. We are especially grateful for the support of Superintendent Barbara Powers, and Topper West and his transportation and custodial teams. Through our many generous sponsors we were able to offer this event at a very low cost to attendees and still cover all our expenses. A list of these contributors can be found at the festival website, Proceeds will support field trips, artist and author visits, and other enrichment programs at the elementary schools. Each year, the Elementary PTO raises and donates almost $20,000 to the elementary schools to pay for things not covered by the school budget. Through your generous support of the festival we will make our budgetary goals for the this year. Erin Cadigan, president Falmouth Elementary PTO

Falmouth candidate responds to critic In response to Pam Fenrich’s incorrect description of my goals as a member of the School Board: 1 — I will slash out-of-control overpaying of vendors. 2 — I will not “eliminate whole programs.” 3 — My son, soon to be senior at Bryant University, thought the public speaking course he took at Falmouth, currently available to upper-level students in English, was extremely useful in the numerous presentations he has had to make. I would move to have this available to all students. His average week’s reading is 300 pages. I would move to add a speed-reading course at Falmouth. 4 — We need to have a test group of students try Rosetta Stone and report to the board their findings and see if they agree with my son. Michael Doyle Falmouth

Yarmouth candidate provides corrections The brief bio in last week’s edition did not paint a complete or entirely accurate picture. My partner is named Dick Sanford, not David. My daughter attended Yarmouth schools for seven years and graduated from Yarmouth High School. The nonprofit program I have been running teaches healthy relationship and communication skills to 9,000 high school students across Maine. It has been taught at Yarmouth High School for the past three years. I did not start the summer programs at North Yarmouth Academy.

schools. I served as a guardian ad litem in the Portland courts for abused children for almost 10 years. My early career as an international business publisher taught me about finance, clear communication and proving that women have an important perspective. Leslie Hyde Yarmouth

Don’t forget to vote in North Yarmouth, Pownal

On June 14, the people of North Yarmouth and Pownal are invited and encouraged to cast their ballots for selectmen and School Board members. This is your opportunity to be a true participant in the democratic process. You have the choice of the people you want to lead your community and your school. If you are like me and you care about your community, you will show up and be counted. We have a participant democracy where everyone has an equal voice. Your voice is as important as your neighbors or the family across town. The work the boards and councils will do will impact your daily life whether that means filling those pesky potholes, educating your child or showing up when you have an emergency. You can change the course of your town’s and school’s work by voting and participating in the process. On June 18, North Yarmouth will hold its annual Town Meeting. Each year it is vital that community members show up and speak up. This year in addition to the budget, we will be tackling issues around funding recreation and library services that we share with Cumberland. If you care about whether you and your family will be able to participate in these activities, show up and let your voice be heard. Pownal’s Town Meeting is June 20. I look forward to seeing you at Town Meeting or at the polls. Rep. Anne P. Graham North Yarmouth

Support for Falmouth schools makes a difference

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to the parents, students, community members, and local businesses that so willingly and enthusiastically supported the Falmouth schools in significant ways last week. The Falmouth Education Foundation sponsored its sixth annual Spelling Bee. Elizabeth Klebe and her executive board, as well as other volunteers, again ran an event that was fun for all who participated as well as entertaining for those in the audience. To see teams of local bankers, college alumni groups, student sports and drama teams, librarians, teachers, and others attempt to spell increasingly difficult words to raise money for the schools and other community groups were amazing. Thousands of dollars were raised from the sponsors of the contestants. Last weekend, the Plummer-Motz and Lunt Farewell Festival took place. Using the theme, “Saying Goodbye to Our Grand Old Schools,” Erin Cadigan, PTO president, and a whole host of volunteers who assisted her created an event designed to bring together our current students, parents, teachers, and alumni of all ages to enjoy a parade, meals, entertainment, a silent auction, tours of the schools, and other commemorative activities. It was a true coming together of the community, with many local businesses offering to be sponsors of monetary and in-kind donations. To both of these organizations and volunteers, job well done. To the community and local businesses, thank you for being such active participants in the life of your schools. It makes a world of difference. Barbara Powers, superintendent Falmouth School Department

Where we stand Voters in several towns will go to the polls June 14 to elect municipal officials, accept or reject school budgets and decide the fate of referendum questions. Here’s where the owners of The Forecaster stand on some of the more interesting propositions.

Falmouth Falmouth’s recent history is marked by decisions on several divisive issues: school consolidation, a town pool and establishment of an ice arena. But none have been as polarizing as the debate over this year’s Question 1. The so-called “town center” question would use a combination of town and private funds to renovate the Plummer/Motz and Lunt schools property for a new library and community center. It took a 4-3 vote by the Town Council to put the question on the ballot, and it wouldn’t surprise us if the margin in the popular vote next week is equally narrow. Most of the interest, and opposition, to Question 1 centers around the proposed move of Falmouth Memorial Library from 5 Lunt Road to the school property. On its face, it seems like much ado about nothing: few people argue that the library could use more shortterm space and parking, and after all, proponents are only talking about using $1.5 million from the town’s undesignated funds. The remainder of the $5.65 million would come from the sale of property and library fundraising. There would be no new taxes levied and a nearly five-year window for library trustees to raise their share of the cost. But that’s where the plan gets squishy. There is widespread disagreement over whether the library’s long-term needs justify the new space. Even a consultant hired by the trustees was reluctant to estimate space needs more than five years down the road. Proponents say they’ve accounted for the costs of renovations and future operations. The project’s budget of about $89 per square foot is already on the high side. But until a contractor actually starts digging behind the walls and under the floors of the old school buildings – and, perhaps, discovers asbestos-coated pipes, mold,

Comment on this story at:

rot or other surprises – it will be hard for anyone to accurately predict how much it will cost to prepare the buildings for new use; costs of $100 per square foot or more aren’t unusual for buildings of this vintage. And that 4 1/2-year window for library fundraising? Does anyone want to guess what will happen to construction costs over the next five years? Unless the economy is even worse than it is today (and that’s a scary thought), you can assume the price will be going up. Proceeds from the sale of town property are another unknown. The Pleasant Hill Fire station sold for less than expected, which puts a dent in the project arithmetic before it even goes to the polls. As for creation of a “town center,” Falmouth already has one: east of Interstate 295, west of Route 1, centered roughly around – the existing library. We’d rather see town officials and library trustees get more creative about expanding and improving the existing space, and continuing the emphasis on the Route 1 commercial district, than trying to manufacture a town center on the wrong side of the highway. And it’s almost guaranteed that taxes overall are likely to increase, while state and federal aid to the town for things like education and road maintenance will be declining. Does Falmouth want to gamble that town taxes and operating costs won’t rise even more if this project comes to fruition? It’s a scenario that leaves us believing, despite the library’s short-term needs and the emotional attachment some people have to the town’s old school buildings, that at this time, in this economic environment, this project is a gamble that Falmouth does not need and cannot afford. We urge a vote of no on Question 1. On the other hand, we support Question 3. The up to $1.2 million that would be borrowed for a wood-chip

boiler at Falmouth Middle School is an investment that should pay off in future savings, not higher costs.

Cumberland & North Yarmouth

Residents of Cumberland forced the referendum that would ban gravel pits and water extraction operations in the town’s major residential zones. Opponents have suggested a vote in favor of Question 1 is a sign that the town, to borrow an over-used phrase, is not “open for business.” We disagree with the opponents. Cumberland has made it plainly clear in the last few years that it is interested in managed, sensible business growth. Gravel pits in residential neighborhoods don’t fit that description, and shouldn’t be allowed. We also support the referendum in Cumberland and North Yarmouth to close the Drowne Road School and turn it over to the town of Cumberland, which may reuse the building for senior housing. With school enrollments changing, and the population growing older, it’s a plan that makes sense.


Voters in the Regional School Unit 5 towns (Freeport, Pownal and Durham) are being asked to borrow $2.9 million for improvements to athletic facilities at the high school. It’s a lot of money, but it addresses a big problem. Freeport’s high school athletic facilities have a reputation throughout the region – and it’s not good. This money will be well spent; the students deserve safer, more competitive facilities, and a private fundraising group led by Joan Benoit Samuelson and TD Bank’s Larry Wold promises to bring in significant outside support that will defray some of the borrowing. We urge Freeport voters (and those in Pownal and Durham) to approve the bond.


There are three special questions on the Harpswell ballot: one would initiate the process that could ultimately lead to the town’s withdrawal from School Administrative District 75, another would authorize $2,400

A commencement commentary Forgive me, dearest readers, for I have sinned. I realize my maternal emotions have taken over as of late, leading me to share with you the torrent of eldest-child-relatedactivities which have taken No Sugar center stage in my life for the past seven months: college searching, prom-dress contemplations, and now, the pinnacle of it all – high school graduation. It’s not that I’ve stopped dating, or that my life has been otherwise void of amusing anecdotes, but those items have been placed on the back burner. Such are the sacrifices one makes as a single parent. And since I was recently reminded Sandi Amorello that at this juncture in our society’s evolution, only 48 percent of all marriages are successful, I know there are plenty of single parents out there who have been feeling my joy – and pain. So, this is it. D-Day has arrived. No more starry-eyed daydreams of the future, imagining what feelings will fill my heart when my first-born is on the cusp of venturing out of the nest and into the brave new world that is higher education. No more wondering what she will look like when she “grows up.” No more sitting in front of a computer screen, in a nursing bra and baggy sweater laced with baby spit-up, staring incredulously at Fidelity’s college planning


website chart that says, “if your child was born this year, by 2011 you will need to have saved $185,000 in order to send her to a private college – so don’t plan on going on any vacations, purchasing any decent clothing or buying any Pellegrino for a couple of decades.” This weekend, along with a gaggle of other students across the country, my lovely daughter receives her high school diploma. With it will come a stream of tears, a heart full of love and memories, and a sigh that says, “Wow, we made it.” When you have children, every accomplishment of theirs also feels like an accomplishment of yours. And it is. Because, although they are their own unique human beings, let’s face it: they are only donning that cap and gown because you, dear parent, have somehow managed to keep them alive. From birth onward, you are their guardian angel. And in the beginning, you are more like an entire paramedic squad. Everything in your home is child-proofed. For four years or so, you cannot plug anything into an electrical outlet, open a bathroom or kitchen cabinet door, walk through a doorway or up or down a flight of stairs without an ungodly amount of unlatching, finagling or feats of gymnastic ridiculousness. Admittedly, my thighs were never in better shape than during the eight consecutive years in which I navigated a house outfitted with childproofing gates. I could have easily put members of the U.S. Olympic hurdling team to shame. The other night, I sat with Ophelia on a bench in Portland, as she reminisced about her final day at the creative business establishment where she was fortunate enough to

do her senior internship project. As I sat beside her, looking into her father’s big, chocolaty brown eyes, I felt a sense of awe. I thought to myself, “Wow. Where did this wonderful, witty, gorgeous, sweet, sensitive, smart, quirky, creative and insightful young woman come from? Surely, this cannot be the product of my years of try-my-best brand of parenting. There must have been divine intervention.” Just as those deep thoughts infiltrated my brain, I had flashbacks of a pregnancy test and tears of happiness, labor pains and the sweet scent of new-baby skin, red-striped tights and first steps, a French nursery school fiasco, bubble baths with Barbie dolls, ballet recitals, temper tantrums (mine and hers), birthday parties and homemade Halloween costumes, flower fairies and notes to Santa Claus. Braids and Band-Aids, kisses and hugs and tears over middle school friendship dramas, late-night talks about bras and boys and the pain and joy of falling in love with someone, someday. And I remembered exactly where she came from. And I wouldn’t have missed one single skinned knee. Congratulations to all the graduates, and to the parents who love them. The best is yet to come.

Channeling the sports curmudgeon My turn to play the role of a soccer dad has come. I spent my Memorial Day weekend at Nauset, Mass., Regional High School, on Cape Cod, attending a New England Soccer Classic tournament. Like others before me, I sat on the sidelines while my son’s team played teams composed of other people’s sons. I felt pride in their good play, frustration at their missed offensive opportunities and defensive lapses, annoyance at the bad calls, and occasional resentment toward their opposition. I did my best to only cheer positive encouragement. I tried to restrain myself from the urge to jeer. I mostly suc-

ceeded. Short It is a relatively new role for me. I have been an amateur athlete of modest ability, and a professional sports fan of moderate dedication. I grew up playing baseball and football. My son plays lacrosse in addition to soccer. I grew up rooting for the New York Mets, Knicks and football Giants, and endured many years of mediocrity between the occasional championships. In contrast, my son has Halsey Frank led a charmed life as a sports fan. Since he arrived in Maine in 1999, he has known nothing but success. He has no idea about the frustrations and heartaches that generations before him endured: the Bucky Dent home run, the Mookie Wilson grounder to first, the Patriots when they were hapless, the Celtics’ loss of Len Bias. He’s seen the Sox win the World Series, the Patriots win the Super Bowl, the Celtics win the NBA championship,

and now the Bruins with a shot to win the Stanley Cup. Maybe I’m being nostalgic, but it seems to me that over the past 30 years, NBA basketball has become more physical, while NHL hockey has become more skillful. I trace the beginning of the decline of NBA basketball to its peak in the 1980s. At the time, the NBA featured a style of team play that emphasized teamwork. The Celtics were led by Larry Bird. They played a New England brand of the game: methodical, with lots of picks and cuts and rolls, precision passes, and sharpshooting. In contrast, Magic Johnson’s Lakers played a star-studded, West Coast, fast-breaking, Hollywood/showtime form of the game. And many of the other teams in the league had distinctive personalities of their own, like the Detroit Pistons, the bad boys of Motor City led by Bill Laimbeer, Isaiah Thomas and Joe Dumars. Basketball began to change when the officials started allowing more physical contact. I remember defenders being allowed to put their shoulder into Kevin McHale’s back and drive him out of the low post to neutralize the

Editorial from page 13 for an environmental assessment of West Harpswell School and the third would rezone the shoreline on Eagle Island. We support all three questions. Harpswell’s relationship with SAD 75 isn’t the best, following the recent battle over the closing of West Harpswell School. We’re not advocating withdrawal from SAD 75, but we believe residents deserve all the facts available before they face that decision. This question will get the fact-finding started. In the same vein, it makes sense to assess West Harpswell School. Voters decided to close it and now must decide if they want to keep the building. The environmental study will help the town make an informed decision. Finally, rezoning on Eagle Island will allow construction of a visitors center on the shoreline, which in turn will help return space in the Adm. Peary home to its original use. It will improve this historic landmark and deserves support.

Short Relief from previous page drop-stepping, double-jointed moves that he employed so well from the paint. Then, they started to allow big men like Shaquille O’Neal to pound their way into the low post. Now, the game is a contact sport and I can discern no consistent principle by which fouls are called. In contrast, during roughly the same period of time, hockey has become more skillful. It was always fast and physical. But it has become less of a brawl since the Russian Army team skated and passed circles around most of the NHL’s best during a goodwill tour in the mid-1970s. The NHL was embarrassed by the disparity in quality of play. It embarked on a program to raise the level of its game. Today, NHL hockey is still fast and physical, but the teamwork, the passing, the shooting, and the goal-tending are amazing. Does it matter how these games are played? What the rules are and how penalties are called? Whether they emphasize teamwork or individual performance? Brute force or finesse? Does it matter who is the best at putting a ball through a hoop, sticking a puck in a net, or hitting a ball with a stick? They’re not going to cure AIDS, end world hunger, or ensure world peace. Is professional sport anything more than making a spectacle of winning at any cost? Rules define a game and give it meaning and value. Some rules are in synch with their game and the nature of sport. Others, not so much. Good rules, consistently ap-

All (non-partisan) politics are local Since the sore sports who lost the Taxpayer Bill of Rights referendums managed to saddle Maine cities and towns with a budget validation process that gives budget-cutters a second bite at the apple, town meetings haven’t been quite the same. Used to be that we voted on Election Day and then went to Town Meeting after the polls closed The Universal to transact our yearly municipal business and await the local election results. Now we hold Town Meeting a week ahead of time so we can validate the school budget on Election Day. The whole thing strikes me as anti-climactic at best, an affront to direct democracy at worst. Around here, local elections are all about Edgar Allen Beem passing and protecting school budgets. Back in 1995, when a prominent gentleman ran for School Committee promising to reduce the school budget, I was recruited to oppose him. I ran on a promise to increase the school budget, which we did all six years I was in office, and improve school facilities, which we did with the help of a $20 million school facilities bond that passed the day I left office. I then served on the facilities committee that oversaw the construction of a new primary school and the total renovation of the high school. That’s right, I’m a tax-and-spend Democrat and darn proud of it, thank you very much. But truth be told, local politics are usually not partisan matters at all. The woman who chaired the School Committee and led the school bond issue campaign was and is a conservative Republican. Our kids went to the same schools and played on the same teams and we sup-


plied, allow players and teams to develop their skills and techniques and apply them so that it becomes apparent who and which are better. At the top of any well-ordered game, the best often have comparable physical abilities. The difference between first and second best is often intangible: leadership, teamwork, sacrifice, determination, spirit, heart, resilience; qualities that can serve a person well in other aspects of life.

ported them. I didn’t even realize she was so conservative until years later. With the absence of party labels in local elections, you have to work a little harder to figure out for whom to vote. There are candidates nights and candidate profiles in the newspapers, of course, but just about everyone speaks in the same political platitudes, promising to be fiscally responsible while preserving whatever it is that’s so great about the town and the schools. Unless there is some controversy brewing or a divisive issue facing the electorate, critics need not apply. If you want to meet the candidates, for School Board, Town Council or state Legislature, try the dump on Saturday morning. Everyone shows up there sooner or later. Local candidates help unload trash and shake hands around the hopper. Not all that sanitary perhaps, but downright neighborly. If you don’t know a local candidate or where he/she stands, the most efficient way to find out about them is to just ask a friend. Then, too, whose lawns a candidate’s signs are on and who signs their endorsement ads generally tells you everything you need to know. “If Buckminster and Barbie like him, that’s good enough for me.” “I’m not voting for anyone the Nutellas support.” The only real problem with the unaffiliated nature of local elections is that, without a party to field a candidate, we sometimes wind up with people running unopposed or, as this year, having too many good candidates to choose from. Do be sure to vote on June 14 and, if you don’t see any candidates that excite you, consider running yourself next time. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY RIGHTS CUMBERLAND RESIDENTS “VOTE NO” ON QUESTION 1 My name is Randy Copp and I live in the town of Cumberland. My father and I purchased a piece of property in West Cumberland a few years ago to help me realize my dream of building a house on the property for my wife and children. I purchased the property with the sole intent of building a home and to have enough land for my children to build homes on one day if they desired. I want to improve the land by landscaping, planting trees, encouraging wildlife and being a good steward ensuring preservation of the land for the next generation. I hired a contractor to clear trees and some brush on my property to enhance the view, create some lawns and to provide the option of pastureland and meadows should my children wish to raise some small farm animals. Before I started any work I met with my neighbors to explain to them my plans for my land, and to ask if anyone had any concerns or objections, no issues were raised by any neighbors. After I made arrangements with various companies to start the project some of the same neighbors I met with initiated a vicious campaign against me personally under the guise of “Clean Cumberland.” In their very public attacks on me they have made false accusations, told half truths, twisted the facts and blatantly lied about me and my intentions. The same people have called and complained to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection more than two dozen times, they have called the Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Department, Maine Forestry Department, and the town of Cumberland code officer and Town Manager on multiple occasions, none of the complaints have resulted in any state or town official finding anything that I have done to be illegal, improper or detrimental to the value of my neighbors property. Some of my neighbors have tried to stop the project by claiming there are issues with wildlife, trees, excavation etc, none of which is true. Everything I have done or intend to do complies with all local, State and Federal regulations. My neighbors have stated that 80% of Cumberland residents could be affected by having a gravel pit in there back yard. This statement has been made at numerous public hearings and posted in this newspaper. This is simply NOT TRUE. Only approximately 10% of the town has sand and gravel deposits. So 80% of the residents of Cumberland could not be affected by having a gravel pit in their backyard. However 80% of the residents in town will lose property rights if this referendum passes. With the property setbacks and with the current regulations my property will be the last property in Cumberland where gravel could be extracted. My project has been compared to the Mckin site in Gray. The Mckin site , contaminated the aquifer, by the direct dumping of contaminates into the groundwater. The Mckin company cleaned fuel tanks and handled other hazardous waste then dumped the contaminates directly into a hole in the ground which polluted the aquifer. I do not clean fuel tanks and I do not handle hazardous waste. The Cumberland Environmental Action Network has claimed that I am going to contaminate the aquifer. My project is not located on the aquifer. My project will be under very strict guidelines from the local, state and federal government. The group then convinced the Town Council to impose a moratorium on my project. The moratorium took effect late last fall and is in effect until the end of June of this year. Obviously my plans to build a house on my own property have been put on hold. I have had multiple meetings with the town council and the planning board, resulting in a vote by both boards to work with me on this project. The Cumberland Town Council is comprised of seven elected members of our community, and they have the authority to halt or modify any activities I undertake that are covered by the zoning ordinances.

My neighbors exercised their right to collect signatures to put my project on the June referendum claiming there is a town wide problem. There is not a town wide problem, in fact there is not a problem at all, this is clearly a “Not In My Back Yard” issue. We already have regulations that we all must abide by no matter what the project. I am not asking the council for any changes or departures from any existing regulations, I am simply asking for permission to do that which is allowed, I am asking to exercise the same rights as everyone who has gone before me, the exact same permissions that are allowed in the town ordnances, the same permissions that have been allowed since the formation of the Town of Cumberland. The regulations some of my neighbors want changed would negatively effect every home, business, church, school, municipal building, farm, garden, road, driveway, utility and septic system that currently exist in our town. If the changes my neighbors want were existing law nothing would ever have been built in Cumberland, and any new businesses considering relocating to Cumberland will be forced to reconsider. I want to live the American dream, I want to build a home for myself and my family, and I want to create a safe and healthy environment for my children. I have saved and made sacrifices like many others to purchase land and build a home to make my dream come true.

If you support protecting your property rights and not allowing your neighbors to control your land then you must vote NO on question 1. If you support the Town Council, Planning Board, The Comprehensive Plan, The Zoning Ordinance, local business, local farms, and making Cumberland more sustainable, you must get out and vote NO on question 1 on June 14th.

Close, but no track titles this spring By Michael Hoffer AUGUSTA — The Falmouth Yachtsmen and Greely Rangers are always state championship contenders in Class B outdoor track, but this year, neither school could match Waterville. The Falmouth boys were looking for their third title in succession and even though they registered an impressive 104 points, Waterville was seven better, holding off the hard-charging and short-handed Yachtsmen down the stretch. Greely (78 points) came in third. Yarmouth (9) finished 17th. As always, Falmouth produced many highlights and could have had more, perhaps enough to win, were it not for the absence of injured junior standout Reid Pryzant. The Yachtsmen got wins from

senior Will Wegener in the 400 (49.82 seconds), senior Andrew Kowalsky in the javelin (169 feet-11 inches) and two relay teams. Sophomore Jacob Buhelt, junior Matt Kingry, senior Brian Prescott and junior Jimmy Polewaczyk won the 400 relay in 44.99. Prescott, Buhelt, Polewaczyk and Wegener were champions of the 1,600 in 3 minutes, 32.59 seconds. Wegener was also runner-up in the 200 (22.38) and third in the 100 (11.34). Junior Aaron Rogers came in third in the long jump (19-2). Senior John Lake placed third in the 800 (2:02.68). Senior Matt Goldstein was third in the racewalk (7:55.49). Senior Tim Follo finished third in the two-mile (9:58.23) and fourth in the mile (4:34.77). Kowalsky placed fourth in the shot put (471). Buhelt was fifth in both the

“I actually thought we were the underdog, but I thought we could win,” said Yachtsmen coach Danny Paul. “I won’t use the excuse that it would have been nice to have Reid. He would have been at least 12 points and we lost by seven. Waterville had a great meet. This is only the second time I know of that a team scored 100 points and didn’t win the meet. We wanted to win, but it was a fun meet.

A year after having to travel to Gray on a daily basis to train (as a new athletic facility was being built in Falmouth), the Yachtsmen produced another memorable season and set the stage for future greatness. Jason Veilleux / For The Forecaster

Walker and Follo, 8:28.15).

“I’m proud of our kids. We did a lot of things really well. We did well where we thought we’d do well and other kids like Aaron in the long jump, Andrew in the javelin, guys that sometimes get forgotten, all came up today and did what they had to do.”

Junior pitcher Mike Leeman and the Greely baseball team are expecting to make a deep playoff run in the days to come.

Brogan, seeded third, defeated Brewer’s Alex Burgess (6-0, 6-0), Cape Elizabeth’s Ross Sherman (6-1, 6-0), sixth-ranked Jordan Friedland of Lincoln Academy (6-1, 6-4) and No. 2 Bob Tom Flynn of John Bapst (6-1, 6-2) to reach the championship round. There, Brogan beat top-ranked Patrick Ordway of Waynflete in the first set, 6-3, then dropped the next two, 4-6, 3-6, to finish runner-up. Falmouth’s Brendan McCarthy, seeded 12th, was a 6-1, 6-3 victor over Zheyang Xue

of George Stevens Academy, then lost to fifth-ranked Tyler Adams of Bonny Eagle (1-6, 2-6). Teammate Taylor Dimick downed Cape Elizabeth’s Satchel McCarthy (6-1, 3-6, 6-2) before being eliminated by Flynn, 0-6, 0-6. NYA’s Burke Paxton won his first round match, 6-0, 6-4, over John Vannorsdall of Camden Hills, then lost to Flynn, 1-6, 0-6. On the girls’ side, two Falmouth girls reached the semifinals. continued page 24

“Our new facility is so nice,” said Paul. “Watching that track with everyone on it (at the Western Maine Conference championship meet) was unbelievable. I’ve thought the last two years we’d take a hit, but we find a way to pull it back together. We seem to have something that works here that feeds off each other. We have a lot of young kids. I’m optimistic.” Greely winners included senior Tanner Storey in the high jump (6-2), senior Michael Burgess in the shot put (52-7) and discus (147-6) and the 3,200 relay team (sophomore Liam

Campbell, junior Nestor Taylor, senior Connor Regan and junior Isaac Emery, 8:23.51).

Senior Matt Davis was runnerup in the pole vault (11-6). Senior Jack Fellows finished second to Burgess in the shot put (50-8) and was fourth in the discus (133-6). Senior Alex Parenteau came in third in the javelin (164-8). Burgess placed fourth in the javelin (160-11). Campbell was sixth in the mile (4:36.03). Sophomore Nathan Madeira finished sixth in the two-mile (10:11.65) and seventh in the mile (4:36.09). Junior Jeff Aalberg was seventh in the pole vault (10-6). Junior Ethan Wyman finished seventh in the javelin (153-3).

The Rangers were also seventh in the 1,600 relay (Regan, Taylor, Campbell, Emery, 3:38.60).

“The boys stepped it up,” said longtime Greely coach John Folan. “We knew we had to live and die with our field events and for the most part, they came through over the course of the day. We won the high jump, discus, shot. We had points in the javelin and the pole vault. We scored in every field event we were entered, with the exception of the long jump, where we were injured. The distance kids were good. We didn’t have the depth to beat Falmouth or Waterville. It was a great effort and I’m really proud.”

The Rangers graduate most of their top athletes, but shouldn’t be written off in 2012.

“We’re losing just about every point we scored today,” Folan

The team competition is down to the

regional final round with Falmouth leading the way. The Falmouth girls, the three-time defending state champions and undefeated top seed in Western Class B, blanked No. 8 Mountain Valley and No. 5 Cape Elizabeth by 5-0 scores to set up a Wednesday regional final date against No. 2 Oak Hill, a team the now 14-0 Yachtsmen did not face this year. Oak Hill eliminated No. 3 Yarmouth, 3-2, in the semifinals, ending the Clippers’ season at 11-3. Yarmouth had ousted No. 6 Greely, 3-2, in the quarterfinals, ending the Rangers’ year at 6-7. In Western C, the four-time defending champion Panthers of North Yarmouth Academy, seeded second, survived an upset bid from No. 7 Boothbay in the

quarterfinals, 3-2, but were knocked out in the semifinals Monday, 3-2, by No. 6 Winthrop, ending their year at 12-2 and their four-year run as state champion. NYA was playing short-handed in the playoffs after three players were suspended for a post-Prom party. On the boys’ side, unbeaten and topranked Falmouth beat No. 8 Morse (5-0) and No. 5 York (5-0) to advance to the regional final versus No. 2 Cape Elizabeth (13-1). The Yachtsmen won, 5-0, at the defending Class B state champion Capers on May 4. The state final matches are Saturday at Colby College in Waterville. Class B starts at 4 p.m.

Baseball The Greely and Yarmouth baseball teams are so closely matched this spring that it took a coin toss to determine which of the squads would earn the coveted top seed for the upcoming Western B playoffs. For the second time this school year, athletic director Mike Griffin came out on the wrong end of the toss (the Rangers lost a three-way coin toss with Cape Elizabeth and Falmouth to determine who made the football playoffs back in the fall) and the Clippers wound up with the No. 1 spot and Greely second. Yarmouth finished the regular year 13-3 after last Wednesday’s 10-4 home win over North Yarmouth Academy. The Clippers, regional runners-up behind Cape Elizabeth last spring, will host the winner of a preliminary round game between No. 8 Gray-New Gloucester (10-6) and No. 9 York (8-8) in the quarterfinals Thursday. Yarmouth beat the Patriots, 9-6, at home May 10 and held off the visiting Wildcats by a 4-2 score the day before. The Clippers last faced Gray-New

Senior Natalie Salmon and the Yarmouth girls’ lacrosse team enter the playoffs as the top seed in Eastern Class B. The Clippers hunger for their first championship since 2007.

Gloucester in the playoffs in last year’s quarterfinals and won, 8-6. Yarmouth beat York, 14-6, in the 2006 preliminary round. Greely also ended up 13-3 after closing with a 7-4 loss to Cape Elizabeth in a game played at the Ballpark in Old Orchard Beach. The Rangers welcome No. 7 Maranacook (8-8) Thursday at 4 p.m. for the quarterfinals. The teams don’t meet in the regular season. The last playoff encounter came in the 2011 regional final (a 3-0 loss). “We have accomplished a lot, but as well as we’ve played in stretches, it was disappointing to end with two subpar performances against rivals,” Greely coach Derek Soule said. “Playoffs always feel like a new season. We’ll look forward to the tournament. The way it’s shaping up, we could have a really tough first round game.” Falmouth finished strong and wound up sixth with a 10-6 mark after downing visiting Wells, 13-2 (in five innings), in the finale. The Yachtsmen ride a fourgame winning streak into the quarterfinals Thursday at No. 3 Cape Elizabeth (12-4). Falmouth split with the Capers this year, losing, 5-2, at home May 10 before winning, 8-3, at Cape Elizabeth 10 days later. The lone prior playoff meeting between the schools resulted in a 7-4 Capers’ preliminary round victory in 2002. Improved Freeport wound up 5-11 after a 5-4 home loss to Traip last Wednesday. The Falcons finished 13th in the Heals, but only nine teams qualified for the Western B playoffs. In Western C, NYA takes a 12-4 mark and the No. 5 seed to No. 4 Telstar (12-2) for Thursday’s quarterfinals. The teams didn’t play this year and have no playoff history. Looking ahead, the semifinal round is Saturday, on the field of the higher remaining seed. The Western B Final is Tuesday, June 14 at 3 p.m., at St. Joseph’s College in Standish. The Western C Final is Wednesday, June 15 at 3 p.m., also at St. Joe’s.

Playoffs from previous page (see for game story). The Yachtsmen lost at home to Wells, 5-3, in their finale to wind up 8-8 and eighth in the region. The Rangers lost at Cape Elizabeth, 5-0, in their final game to finish 9-7 and ninth. Falmouth and Greely split in the regular season. The Yachtsmen won in Cumberland, 11-5, May 7. The Rangers then outslugged host Falmouth, 11-10 (in eight innings), May 24. The teams had no playoff history entering Tuesday. The winner advanced to Thursday’s quarterfinals and a date with top-ranked (16-0) Fryeburg, the three-time defending regional champion. The Yachtsmen were blanked at home by the Raiders, 1-0, May 29. The Rangers lost at home to Fryeburg, 11-0, on May 9. Yarmouth is the No. 2 seed after a superb 14-2 campaign, the second best in program history (after the 2006 squad, which wound up 15-1). The Clippers host No. 7 Wells (11-5) in the quarterfinals Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Yarmouth held off the visiting Warriors, 7-2, way back on April 27. The teams last met in the playoffs in the 2006 quarterfinals (a 5-4 Clippers’ triumph). Freeport beat visiting Traip in its finale, 11-5, to end up 6-10, but the Falcons were 14th in the final Heals and only nine teams qualified. NYA went 0-12 this year and finished 18th in Western C. Looking ahead, the semifinal round is Saturday, on the field of the higher remaining seed. The Western B Final is Tuesday at 3 p.m., at St. Joseph’s College in Standish.

Boys’ lacrosse Falmouth’s boys’ lacrosse team is the top seed in Western B for the second year in a row. The Yachtsmen rolled at Freeport, 19-3, in the regular season finale, to go 111. Falmouth is idle until Saturday when it hosts No. 4 Waynflete (9-3) in the semifinals. The Yachtsmen beat the visiting Flyers, 17-5, at home on April 27. Falmouth dropped both prior playoff meetings, 7-5, in the 2002 divisional quarterfinals and 1413 in the 2006 quarterfinals. Greely entered the playoffs on a high note, rallying to beat visiting perennial powerhouse Yarmouth, 13-12, in the teams’ mutual regular season finale. It was the Rangers’ first win over the Clippers since May 13, 2003. Nick Rotondi had four goals, Austin Spencer three and Matt Ricker scored the winner. Nick Robinson won 17-of-26 faceoffs. “(Yarmouth) led the whole way until the fourth,” said Greely coach Casey Abbott. “It was a fantastic game. Back and forth. The guys had heart and fought for it and came back.” The Rangers wound up 8-4 and third in

Western B and go to No. 2 Cape Elizabeth (10-2), the defending Class B champion Saturday at 3 p.m. in the semifinals. Greely lost at home to the Capers, 14-8, back on May 10. The last playoff meeting resulted in an 11-5 Cape Elizabeth win in the 2008 regional final. In Eastern B, Yarmouth wound up 6-6 after the loss to Greely, but still earned the No. 2 seed behind undefeated St. Dom’s. The Clippers host No. 3 Gardiner (10-2) or No. 6 Maranacook/Winthrop (7-5) in the semifinals Saturday. Yarmouth has no history with either potential foe. NYA downed visiting York, 17-2, in its final game to finish 5-7 and fourth. The Panthers hosted No. 5 Morse (7-5) in a quarterfinal round game Wednesday. The teams didn’t meet this year. NYA beat the host Shipbuilders, 15-1, in the 2008 quarterfinals. If victorious, the Panthers will go to 12-0 St. Dom’s Saturday in the semifinals. The teams didn’t play this year. NYA beat the Saints, 17-2, in the 2002 preliminary round. Freeport wound up 6-6 and seventh in Eastern B (where only six teams qualify) after a 19-3 home loss to Falmouth last week. Looking ahead, the regional finals are Wednesday of next week, on the field of the higher remaining seeds. The state championship games are Saturday, June 18, at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland.



Danielle Torres, two goals and five assists from emerging senior star Natalie Salmon and a smothering defensive effort, led by senior Devin Simsarian. “This has been an incredible season so far,” Torres said. “I’ve had four really great years in lacrosse at Yarmouth. This year is definitely the best. The 12 seniors, it’s such a compact group of leaders. It’s a really unique team and I’m really proud of everyone.”

Yarmouth is idle until Saturday when it hosts No. 4 Morse (8-4) in the semifinals. The teams didn’t play this year. The Clippers beat the Shipbuilders, 17-4, in the 2008 semis. “We had a tough schedule,” Yarmouth coach Dorothy Holt said. “Going 11-1, I’m really happy and so are they, but now comes what we’re working hard for. We have big games coming up.” NYA dropped its final four contests,

Girls’ lacrosse On the girls’ side, the Yarmouth Clippers announced last Wednesday that the road to the Class B title goes through them. Hosting perennial powerhouse and recent nemesis Waynflete on Senior Night, Yarmouth put forth its best effort of a superb season, leading virtually the whole way en route to a commanding 13-8 victory. The Clippers finished 11-1 (and first in Eastern B) behind four goals from senior Political Advertisement

On the girls’ side, Waterville dominated with a 145.5-point performance, crushing the field (York was runner-up with 63). Greely (60) came in fourth. Falmouth (33) was eighth and Yarmouth (1) tied for 25th. The Rangers, who posted their 21st

We scored in the jumps. The distance, Sandreuter in particular, was stellar. The 4x800 relay ran the fastest time in two or three years. Jessica Wilson did a top-notch job and ran her best time ever. We just didn’t have quite enough.” The Rangers will be right back in the hunt next season. “We have a lot coming back, which is encouraging,” Folan said. The Yachtsmen were led by junior Jenna Serunian, who was second in the shot put (38-7.5) and third in the discus (1010). Senior Kate Sparks was third in the shot put (36-7.25) and fifth in the discus (97-6). Senior Amy Webster was sixth in the pole vault (8 feet).

Playoffs from page 25 including a 15-5 home decision to Falmouth last Tuesday, to wind up 4-8, but the Panthers are the No. 2 seed in the region. They’ll welcome No.3 Gardiner (8-4) Saturday at 10 a.m. The teams have no history. Freeport wound up 6-6 and fifth in the region (where only four teams qualify) after a season-ending 13-7 victory at Wells behind four goals from Jess Hench and three from Becca Lane. In Western B, Falmouth is the No. 2 seed behind Waynflete after going 7-5, culminated by a 15-5 win at NYA. The Yachtsmen have a difficult semifinal round draw Saturday when No. 3 Cape Elizabeth (9-3) pays a visit. Falmouth rallied past the visiting Capers, 11-9, back on May 11. Last year, in the semifinals, the Yachtsmen had to come from behind to beat Cape Elizabeth, 11-10. Greely made great strides this spring in its first season under new coach Sara Dimick, improving its win total by five from a year ago and winding up 6-6 after a 9-7 loss at Cape Elizabeth last Wednesday. The 6-6 Rangers are the No. 4 seed in Western B and go to No. 1 Waynflete (102) in the semifinals Saturday. Greely lost at the Flyers, 22-11, back on May 11 (the Rangers were only down, 8-7, at halftime). The teams have met eight prior times in the postseason, with Waynflete winning on seven occasions. The last encounter was the 2008 regional final (a 16-5 Flyers’ triumph). Looking ahead, the regional finals are Wednesday of next week, on the field of the higher remaining seeds. The state championship games are Saturday, June 18, at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ Follow him on Twitter: @foresports.

Clothing styles change on a whim according to what trend forecasters see as the “it” items of the season. People looking to keep abreast of certain styles or just maintain a fresh supply of different wardrobe options may find that replenishing a closet can be an expensive venture. But it doesn’t have to be. Those without a set budget may be able to afford monthly shopping trips to add new pieces to a wardrobe. However, the average person lives on a tighter budget, and there may not be as much room for discretionary spending on clothing and accessories. According to, a family of three making about $64,000 per year can expect to spend roughly 4 percent of those earnings on apparel and services. People interested in refreshing their selection of clothing more frequently should consider alternative options than buying retail. Here are some ideas to think about.

Clothing Swap A good way to socialize and switchup a wardrobe is to host a clothing swap party. Invite around 10 friends or family members to be part of it. Be sure to have

Chattel (chat’l), n. an article of personal or movable property. Consignment for the home 847-3334 805 US Route One, Yarmouth Tues - Sat 10 - 5

at least 2 or 3 of the same-sized people so that there won’t be an abundance of items to fit one person and not enough to fit another. Shoes and accessories are also acceptable.

Set the rules for the event, where each person is entitled to take as many items as she has brought. Encourage guests to bring clean, gently used items that are in good condition. Because this type of get-together involves some advanced work of sorting through clothing, be sure to give guests ample advance notice. Have refreshments on hand and opportunities to chat over styles and options. Whatever clothes are not taken by others can be donated to charity.

Consignment Stores It used to be that consignment stores were the stepchildren of the retail world. Many people viewed them as glorified tag sales and didn’t think they were worthy of investigation.

Nowadays, consignment shops are big business and good places for savvy shoppers to visit. Much like overstock stores sell items on discount that are on par with department stores, consignment shops often offer new or very lightly used items for resale – at a fraction of the original retail price. Plus, they’re an ideal place to look for unique pieces and accessories that might otherwise have been out of budget.

Shop Basics

When buying new items at a store, buy pieces that can be put together in a variety of combinations. Stick to simicontinued next page

lar colors and themes so that each piece will work seamlessly. Consider multilayered items that can be worn with a cardigan or without; or go from the office to a dinner date afterward. Remember, items that blend can be worn more often because they won’t stick out in the minds of others as something flashy.

Consider Shopping Online Shoppers are often amazed at the wide variety of items that can be purchased online. If a shopper doesn’t see something in a store for the price she wants, she can comparison shop online. Although she can’t try on merchandise, with the exception of some sites that offer a virtual model, many online retailers offer free shipping on returns. Online shopping also takes the hassle out of visiting several stores, finding parking and dealing with crowds. Plus, a shopper can purchase things on her own time, whether that’s early morning or after the kids have gone to bed.

Consignment stores and clothing swaps are two ways you can refresh a wardrobe without spending a fortune.


Explore Tailoring Think about how Molly Ringwald’s character turned pieces of fabric into new creations in the cult 1980s film, “Pretty in Pink.” With some simple tailoring, just about anyone can modify items to make them look brand new. For those who don’t know their bobbins from their seam-rippers, make friends with someone who does and enlist some help with fashion redesign.

attend Chebeague Island School until sixth grade, when they step up to Greely Middle School in Cumberland. Chebeague’s 2007 secession agreement called for the town to send its middle and high school students to School Administrative District 51 through 2014; the town paid SAD 51 about $1.8 million in tuition up front. With next year’s budget passed, Chebeague’s sixth-graders will be sent to Yarmouth in the upcoming school year. Sixth- and seventh-graders will make the transition in 2012-2013, followed by sixth- through eighth-graders in 20132014. Every Chebeague student after fifth grade would be in Yarmouth by 20142015, except for a small number already at Greely High School, who can choose to remain there. SAD 51 agreed to grandfather those students. Chebeague School Superintendent Alton Hadley said last month that the early transition will give Chebeague elementary students a chance to develop

friendships and social contacts with a new group of youths, with whom they will attend middle and high school, and that Chebeague students would have a head start on acclimating to the Yarmouth curriculum. Hadley also pointed out that the closer proximity of Chebeague to Yarmouth is a benefit. Students now travel from Chebeague to Yarmouth by ferry, and then to Cumberland. Chebeague now sends 22 students to SAD 51, Hadley said. There will be only four sixth-graders to be sent to Yarmouth this fall. He said Yarmouth has agreed to freeze the tuition rate at about $8,700 a year. Hadley said he expects the early transition will not increase Chebeague taxes in the first or second years, barring any significant unexpected expenses. But he said the third year is difficult to project, and that taxes could increase slightly. He also noted that the town has money – which has not been spent in previous budgets and must be used for education – that will be used to fund the transition and offset any potential tax impact from the school budget.

put it toward law enforcement. Service throughout the summer, when Chebeague’s population increases, will continue. Chebeague will spend nearly $47,000 on law enforcement in fiscal 2012. Although most of the meeting’s decisions were made by a show of hands, town officials were elected by written ballot after being nominated at Town Meeting. Maine, a former selectman who was nominated for the board along with Selectman Donna Damon, whose threeyear term is expiring, defeated her 62-36.

“My hope is that we can do the printed book, and have good sales on the printed book, and ... supplement with the ebook,” he said. Lunt said one struggle with e-books are their low prices. “I don’t think this industry can survive the price points that some of these guys are pushing for e-books,” he said. With prices as low as $5.99, “where’s the author getting the money, where’s the overhead coming from? ... What will happen to quality, what will happen to the designers, the writers, down the road?” Lunt said prices are dictated by “the powers that be” – e-book sellers like Amazon and Apple. With “Abbott’s Reach,” the print version is $16.95 and the e-book is under $10. He said he hopes that within the next few months Islandport Press will be able to offer e-books through its own website, as opposed to just using companies like Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Board member Christie Harriman said she joined the group as a young woman when her children started school.

The group presented a graduating senior with the Yarmouth Improvement Award and sponsored the writer’s prompt for the kindergarten through eighth-grade essay contest. The VIS also plans to install six informational signs at the Royal River Park to outline the river and its historical significance.

Bow Street Market from page 9 the store to resemble a New England farmhouse with an attached barn and outbuilding. The 15,000-square-foot building has green elements, including a system that recycles the heat from the refrigeration units and uses it to heat hot water. The four apartments above the store use solar hot water and the entire building is on a natural gas line, Nappi said. Bob Gilliam of 1780 Brookdale Farm donated a wagon built in 1900 that is used as a display outside the store. It adds a personal touch to the store, Nappi said, and fits with the farmhouse theme. Ben Sulsa of Beech Hill Road crafted many of the display cases in the store using restored wood from local farm houses. Nappi said it is very rewarding to live and work in the Freeport community. “We are so happy to support local vendors,” Nappi said. “The community has been so good to us over the years, it is nice to represent them in this way.”

“I was looking for something to do in the mornings and I wanted to meet new people,” she said. “I’ve been a member for about 30 years.” Founded in 1911 by resident Harriet Bird, the VIS has worked to maintain the village feel in Yarmouth. In 1910 the organization cleaned and improved the grounds at the Grand Trunk Station, which is now the Village Florist, and in 1911 members raised enough money to create the Village Green Park. The group founded Clean Up Week in 1914 and has helped to preserve the Old Meeting House on Hillside Avenue since 1917. In 1957, VIS planned a museum for the top floor of the Merrill Memorial Library and in 1960 the museum’s offspring, the Yarmouth Historical Society, was incorporated. The warming hut behind the Log Cabin was built by the VIS and the organization continues to support the Herbie Tree

To conclude the program in early September, White said Nathan Hamilton, a professor at the University of Southern Maine, and Dr. Stuart A. Eldridge, editor of the Maine Archaeological Society Bulletin, will discuss 18th and 19th century coastal farmsteads, historic archeology and prehistoric archeology.

“I know there are not many stay-athome parents these days and people are very busy, but we do a lot for the community and try to make village improvements,” Harriman said. “Members really do want to make Yarmouth a better place to live.”

To celebrate the 100th anniversary, the group will host a picnic at Royal River Park on Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. There will be food, refreshments, entertainment and hat-making for children. Women are encouraged to wear hats representative of the 1910s, Harriman said. From 2-3 p.m. residents are invited to visit the Old Meeting House on Hillside Avenue.

Unsung Hero from page 4 political science and theology at a Jesuit college in New York. She then joined the Army as a way to rebel against what she describes as “hippie parents.” In the Army, she was an outspoken Democrat in a largely Republican organization. During her 18 years in the military, Green traveled the world, including a stint in the Gulf War where, she says, “I saw things no one should see.” In 2004, Green moved to Maine to take a position at the Brunswick Naval Air Station, before it closed. Lisa has been a crossing guard since 2008, but she hasn’t always played the clown. “A car almost clipped me while I was at my first post on Jordan Avenue,” she

said, “so I decided to wear silly colorful hats so no one would miss me.” Drivers passing by can’t possibly miss her now, whatever the month. October means all kinds of outlandish Halloween costumes. November brings a turkey theme. Christmas hats start in December, and so on right through the month of May, a time for flowery adornments. Every day there is a different costume or hat, rain or shine. “My mother was a teacher, so I use lots of holiday decorations from her teaching days,” Green said. “And I shop at thrift stores. Sometimes my 13-year-old son Patrick (‘an awesome kid!’) makes me a hat. Sometimes we just redecorate old hats. One Christmas, Patrick even made a gingerbread house for me to wear.” And how do people react to Green’s daily sartorial shenanigans? “Kids love it,” she said. “They wonder what I’m going to wear

the next day. Nothing’s better than making a kid smile on the way to school. “Old people often honk and wave as they drive by. Sometimes teenagers and young adults look at me like I’m weird. And every once in a while I’ll get a curmudgeon who just won’t smile.” Even curmudgeons might smile if they spent some time hearing Lisa’s riff. Here’s one example: “I don’t need a man because I have those two dogs. They snore, they fart and they keep my tush warm at night.” Lisa would like to get a part-time job to supplement her income, but only if it left her free to fulfill her crossing guard duties from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. every school day. “I love kids, I’m a kid, too,” she said. “I’m goofy. I went through a serious phase of my life, and I don’t have to be serious anymore.”

in that zone, so that we can capture the best future tax revenues, but also make the zone compatible,” Shane said, with new businesses emerging in the OCS zone. He also noted that the moratorium is a chance to “take a step back and not have somebody put a lot of time and effort into something we really didn’t want to see here in town.” The manager said there are no pending applications for retail uses. The Town Council and Ordinance Committee will review the matter, which should go to the Planning Board by late July or early August, Shane explained. He said the town is looking to allow limited retail uses, with restrictions on size and hours of operation. Shane said a drug store, bank, hardware store, or restaurant are uses he would support. The matter attracted no public comment. Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@ Follow him on Twitter: @learics.

Cat shelter

Bushey said.

from page 4 already in our care,” she explained. Bushey said the overpopulation situation stems from kitten season being in full bloom and the fact that HART has received many homeless kittens along with their mothers. “Also, we are assisting an overwhelmed cat-lover that has attempted to assist a large number of homeless cats on his own, and he has stretched his resources to the breaking point,”

She noted that the shelter’s participation in large-scale surrenders quickly stretches its funding and volunteers. Bushey said the shelter has reached a point where it must turn cats away. “We had a fellow come in that had gotten two strays that were like a year old, and we just couldn’t take them,” she said. She also noted that cats that have been with HART and then adopted, but then need a new home, can return to the shelter.


“We would like to assist more of these kitties, but our space restricts us until more cats become adopted,” Bushey said. The timing is right. June is AdoptA-Shelter Cat Month, and to celebrate, HART has reduced its adult adoption fee for the month from $75 to $35. The kitten adoption fee is $75. The shelter, a non-profit organization, also seeks financial donations to support the care it provides homeless felines. Donations can be mailed to HART, P.O. Box 351 Cumberland, ME 04021.
