Mussel-bound

Shellfish farm nets complaints from recreational boaters By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — Chuck McCatherin spent nearly $700 replacing the propeller for his 23-foot recreational fishing boat several weeks ago after the boat

became entangled in kelp and ropes from an aquaculture farm while he was traveling between his Chebeague Island summer home and Falmouth, where he lives and his boat is moored.

The mussel farm off Long Island in Casco Bay was approved by the U.S. Coast Guard and by a public hearing process last See page 35

By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — Steamer the Clam has been the Clam Festival mascot for almost 10 years, and remains a hard shell to crack. Created in 2002, the clam’s identity is closely guarded. He, or she, has been played by men and women, children and adults, and residents of Yarmouth and other towns. According to Carolyn Schuster, executive director of the Yarmouth Chamber

of Commerce, the idea for a mascot was conceived by Judi Clancy, a former Clam Festival director. The costume was designed by Frances Dunphy of Commercial Costumes and every year the shell is repaired and Steamer’s smile is adjusted. “The identity of who plays Steamer has always been a secret,” Schuster said. “It’s a cardinal rule with mascots. No one knows who Oakie or Slugger is, and it’s the same with Steamer.” Schuster said different people have had the honor of See page 29

By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — The Town Council held a closed-door meeting Monday night with the owner of OceanView Retirement Home and its development company in advance of producing a request for proposals for use of the Lunt and Plummer-Motz school buildings and development of the school property. Voters on June 14 rejected a proposal to move Falmouth Memorial Library to Lunt, create a community center at Motz and renovate Plummer for possible rental by an outside organization. OceanView, the town’s largest taxpayer, abuts the land and has expressed interest in purchasing part of the school property. No formal deal has been inked, and representatives of OceanView declined to comment Monday after the meeting. While some councilors were See page 28

Freeport farmers find their niche with the ‘veggie boat’ By Emily Guerin CHEBEAGUE ISLAND — It’s 11 o’clock on a Saturday morning in July, and already a line has formed next to a teal and white boat docked at the Chebeague Island Boat Yard. A red and blue “OPEN” flag flutters on the boat’s stern, and a white tent shades coolers and

King of the road

New book chronicles transition from governor of Maine to just another guy driving an RV By Emily Guerin

After serving two terms as governor, King left office in 2003 and began his road trip the very next day. After years of constantly being in the spotlight and adhering to a tight schedule, King and his family decided to do the opposite on their trip. They had no itinerary and no Maine State Police escort.

BATH — If former Gov. Angus King is somewhat of a Maine legend, then his new book is quite literally his “Odyssey.” “A Governor’s Travels” chronicles the Brunswick resident’s nearly six-month journey across the country in a 40-foot RV with his wife Mary Herman and two of their children.

Instead, they became like everyone else they met on the road: free-wheeling, anonymous Americans, living out a lifelong dream.

But it also is an account of how King managed the transition from being a public servant to just another member of the public, or as he puts it, from being “the Man” to “simply a man.”

In an interview near his vacation home in Georgetown, King recalled one of his first brushes with anonymity.

He also offers advice to others who are passing from public office or employment to retirement.

Council cans proposal for pay-per-bag trash disposal By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — Residents will not have to purchase specific bags to dispose of trash after the Town Council on Tuesday night ended discussions about pay-per-bag pick-up. The Solid Waste and Recycling Committee has been working on a proposal since last September, after the council asked it to investigate options for reducing solid waste disposal costs. The committee’s report recommended adding one more silver bullet recycling bin and instituting a pay-per-bag trash disposal system. But after considering the proposal in a workshop, receiving public input and discussing the cost, the Town Council did not support the plan and sent it back to the committee without a vote. Councilor Sara Gideon said the cost didn’t make sense. Even if taxpayers saved $15, they would have to pay $1.25

a bag and still pay for someone to haul their trash or take it to the transfer station themselves. “This doesn’t work for Freeport, but I still think there can be an increase in recycling,” she said. Councilor Charlotte Bishop said the pay-per-bag proposal is not a good fit for the town, but said an additional silver bullet recycling container would be advisable. Other councilors agreed that an additional silver bullet would reduce trash hauled to ecomaine and increase recycling. Residents Marie Gunning and Ken Mann both said the pay-per-bag proposal would result in a considerable tax shift from businesses to residents. “If we are going to make that move, continued page 37

Cumberland council approves gravel pit restrictions By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — The Town Council unanimously approved a Planning Board recommendation to continue to allow gravel pits in the town’s Industrial Zone, but only through contract zoning. The proposal originally included the towns two Rural Residential Zones. But a petition circulated by the Cumberland Environmental Action Network called for a gravel extraction ban in the two Rural Residential zones. That petition went to referendum last month, where it passed, 862-507. Town Manager Bill Shane said Monday that by requiring contract zones, “it will be more difficult to get a gravel extraction operation (approved) and will actually afford more protections to abutting residents, because of the new rules.” The Town Council last November enacted a 180-day moratorium on new applications for gravel pits and water extraction sites. In March it extended

that moratorium to June, until after the referendum. The moratorium was enacted after Elvin Copp and his son, Randy Copp, expressed interest in a gravel pit and water extraction site on land Elvin owns off Upper Methodist Road, which borders the Maine Turnpike and the Falmouth town line. They later opted not to apply for a permit until after a town review, but not before clear-cutting and earth removal occurred on the site without town permits, according to Shane.

FALMOUTH SCHOOLS and “School Friendly Candidates” On May 30, 2011 Karen Boffa, the Plummer-Motz Principal, sent an email to her staff and Supt. Powers (61 people) advocating support for two Town Council candidates and three School Board candidates. She called these “school friendly”. She used the School computer system and School email address lists. Boffa wrote: “If you’re not a Falmouth voter, you may delete this email. If you vote in Falmouth, I know I’ve been asked my opinion on who to vote for on Tuesday, June 14th. Here are my “school-friendly” choices for the School Board (blurbs about each candidate were in the Forecaster this past week- 6 candidates are running for 3 seats) Karyl Hazard, Analiese Larson, and Lucy Tucker. My school friendly choices for Town Council (blurbs were also in the Forecaster- 4 candidates for 2 seats): Chris Orestis, Teresa Pierce. Please remember to vote! Karen Karen L. Boffa Principal Plummer-Motz School The written School policy PROHIBITS using the School computer and internet “for communicating with other school users or outside parties to solicit, proselytize, advocate or communicate the views of an individual or non-school sponsored organization…” (GCSA-R (B) (5)) The Boffa email was sent on May 30th with a copy to Supt. Barbara Powers, and one week later on June 6, John Flaherty, Principal of the Lunt School sent out a similar email to his Lunt staff (80 names including Supt. Powers) supporting the same candidates (luntstaff@fps.k12.me.us ). So for one full week Supt. Barbara Powers failed to put an end to this improper use of the School computer system by senior administrators. Why? Subsequently, on June 9th Flaherty sent out a retraction email to his staff trying to explain away his first email. However, nothing was done about the Boffa email for 14 days until 8:07 pm on June 13th, or less than 24 hours before the election and after 1000 absentee ballots had been cast when Boffa sent out her retraction email to her staff trying to explain away and defend her May 30th email. Where were Supt. Powers and the Board these 14 days? Analiese Larson, a member of the Board prior to the election and now the Chairperson, was a favored candidate on both the Boffa and Flaherty emails. The Boffa and Flaherty retraction emails seem to suggest that they had just been looking at candidates who were present or former parents of school children as if this would excuse what they did. Flaherty wrote: “…It isn’t my place nor my intention to be involved in the political arena, but I was simply trying to respond to many questions… So I threw out some names of current or recent Lunt School parents who are running for office.” Boffa wrote: “… it was not my intention to be in the political arena, I was only trying to respond to those of you who had questions about candidates who were either former or current elementary parents.” Who helped draft these retraction emails? Of course they did not support all parent candidates, just those deemed to be school friendly. For example a Council candidate who was not recommended has two children in the elementary schools. In the June 23rd Forecaster article Supt. Barbara Powers seems to suggest that the School policy was unclear: “There was in my view an error in judgment, but nothing illegal was done… I would be tighter if we were explicit about the things that were not allowed”. Really? It seems clear that Boffa and Flaherty advocated and/or communicated their views. Has anyone been disciplined? Who knows? We need an investigation to get the facts. Supt. Barbara Powers can’t do this because she was involved and will assert confidentiality. The School Board can’t do this because they are in the middle of it and would also likely assert confidentiality. The School Policy says, “Illegal uses of the school’s computers will also result in a referral to law enforcement authorities.” It should be noted, by statute (Title 17-A Ch. 18 Sec. 432), unauthorized use of “any computer resource” can be a Class D crime. This is not just an internal school matter but was a challenge to the integrity of the Town election process. We need an investigation by an outside agency not bound by confidentiality rules. The public is entitled to all the facts. Imagine the hue and cry if these Principals had recommended Michael Doyle for School Board. How much angst would that have generated amongst the “School Friendly” contingent? A Political Ad paid for by Michael Doyle, 207-766-6644

Freeport Family Literacy program gets $25K grant By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — The Greater Freeport Family Literacy Program recently received a $25,000 grant from the Barbara Bush Foundation to support programs that will strengthen literacy among local parents and children.

The funds are designed to provide adult, early childhood and intergenera-

tional literacy services to families with at least one adult reading at less than a 12th grade level and at least one child under eight who is at risk for being unprepared to start school. “It is not the child that determines the level of poverty in their home,” Dyer said. “They will continue to live in poverty until the parents are better educated.” The Greater Freeport Family Program combines the services of the Freeport Housing Trust, Freeport Community Services, Freeport Child Care Services, Freeport Rotary, Regional School Unit 5 Recreation and Community Education and Morse Elementary School. All these organizations will work together on comprehensive family literacy programming for low-income and English Language Learner families living in public housing. Last year, Freeport was awarded a $5,000 planning grant and this year, Dr. Gudi Gill, Freeport’s literacy coordinator, accepted the $25,000 award from Barbara Bush in a June 15 ceremony.

Another opportunity for families is one-on-one tutoring in reading and math through the Freeport Housing Trust, Child Care Services, Seeds of Independence and Freeport Library, Lyman said. An early childhood literacy program for 12 preschool and kindergarten children will begin this month with a focus on reading skills. The children will meet three times a week for one-hour sessions. Other programs focus on children and their parents working together on reading skills throughout the school year and during the evening. “After this first year, we hope these programs will continue,” Lyman said. “If we continue to identify the need, we can address the issues on our own.” A total of ten $25,000 grants were awarded this year from applications submitted by libraries, adult education and public schools across the state. An additional two planning grants of $5,000 help communities develop the partnerships and resources needed to implement a family literacy program in 2011.

Panel considers $33M for Civic Center renovations By Emily Parkhurst PORTLAND — The Cumberland County Civic Center may get a face-lift if voters approve a bond issue likely to appear on the November ballot. The Civic Center Building Committee has been working with Portland architecture firm SMRT Architects on a plan to renovate the 35-year-old Civic Center, home of the Portland Pirates. At a building committee meeting Tuesday morning, the renovation was estimated to cost $33 million. Discussions centered around required upgrades, such as Americans with Disabilities Act-mandated wheelchair-accessible seating; replacement of all the facility’s seats; and improvements that would help attract performers, such as more vendor space, more women’s restrooms and higher-priced exclusive seating. “They’ve been addressing ways to make the Civic Center more attractive to acts, and to the Pirates,” Cumberland County Manager Peter Crichton said. One of the things the committee is addressing is the Pirates’ request for premium seating, which the team could sell

to businesses that use the seats to treat clients and business partners, Crichton said. Current plans include a $2.4 million Captains Club at the southwest corner of the building, with private access and upgraded seats. The building committee initially considered a proposal to add up to 120 loge seats, which would include a refrigerator every three seats, counter space and more of a club atmosphere, but that would have required a net loss of up to 80 standard seats. The Captains Club would result in fewer lost standard seats and could potentially remove up to 500 hockey fans from the concourse during games. The premium seats could be a way to generate revenue to help offset some of the renovations, Crichton said. Renovation plans also include updates to the visiting team lockers and changing room facilities. When asked if he was concerned about the Pirates’ devotion to staying in Portland, after rumors circulated last year the team might leave the area, Crichton said

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/95049

the renovations are important regardless of the team that uses the facility. “No matter who we have as a team, there’s going to be this kind of situation going on,” Crichton said. “The Pirates are looking at their bottom line and wanting to make enough to support their team, but we recognize this is a public facility.” During Tuesday’s meeting, Pirates owner Brian Petrovek estimated each loge seat would have generated $2,500. But other building committee members were concerned about the Civic Center’s ability to sell those seats for other events. The building committee also discussed earlier proposals to expand the loading dock area on Center Street, so events could get in and out of the building faster. “This loading dock in its current condition does not seem to impact our ability to attract events,” Civic Center board Chairman Neal Pratt said. Including the loading dock would cost an estimated $1.75 million. Architect Paul Stevens said the load-

ing dock could be included later, if bids come in lower than expected, or completed at another time without having a negative impact on day-to-day operations of the Civic Center. “In terms of dealing with the city of Portland, that’s the most complicated piece,” Stevens said. “That dialog hasn’t happened yet.” The committee and architects will be holding a series of public hearings around the county to get feedback about what the public would like to see in the renovations. Meetings will be held July 18 at 6 p.m. at the broadcast studio adjacent to Jordan Small School in Raymond; July 21 at 6 p.m. at the Freeport Town Hall; and July 26 at 6 p.m. at Scarborough Town Hall. The building committee will meet again after the public hearings and make its recommendation to the County Commissioners, who will decide the final wording of the bond referendum that will go to voters in November.

School’s out for summer, but Falmouth construction is in full swing By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — The first thing you notice when you walk into the new Falmouth Elementary School on Woodville Road is the natural light. That light accompanies you as you walk through the colorful halls in each wing, even on the lower floors, where thick glass inset in the floors allows light from skylights on the second floor to continue down to the first. The new building, which came in $8 million under budget at $38 million, is on track to replace the Plummer-Motz and Lunt school buildings on Lunt Road this fall. In the fall, between 850 and 900 children will fill the colorful halls and classrooms. Grades one through five will use

the building’s modern classrooms, along with a day-care service for town and school staff and students who are parents, and the new all-day kindergarten program, which is shaping up to be the largest kindergarten class ever in Falmouth. “The theme is to capture the water, the ocean, in Falmouth, and the grassland and forests,” said Superintendent Barbara Powers, pointing to the green and blue tiles throughout the building. Each wing has a theme, some bluishgreen like the ocean, some orange and brown, like the sun and soil of the town’s farmland. “Every two rooms has a project room, which the teacher can see into,” Powers said. The small rooms just outside the classroom will likely be used for response to intervention work with students who may be struggling in the regular classroom, or for small groups who need space to work on their own. Each kindergarten classroom has its own bathroom, and every classroom is equipped with water fountains and sinks. Lighting is all motion sensitive, ceilings are sloped to make the most of natural light, skylights are everywhere, and in

The new gym, which will be available for after-hours use by the town’s Community Programs Department, has a separate entrance and a large parking lot that can be used as overflow for sport events on the ball fields below.

many places, windows go floor to ceiling. “For the first time, all grade levels will be clustered together,” Powers said. “I think the teachers are excited about being able to do grade-level work together.” The school even has a “green roof,” alive with native plants. The plants soak up rain water, eliminating the need for some storm-water run-off pools. One roof, full of seedlings that have just taken root, is also an outdoor classroom teachers can use during the warmer months. The band room, cafeteria and gymnasi-

Powers said that rather than equipping all the classrooms with Smartboards, which connect teacher computers with a large, white board, the district decided to get iPads for students and Light Speed, a microphone system for teachers. “The teacher wears a little mic, and the kids will hear her as if she’s standing next to them,” Powers said. “It helps the kiddos, helps the hearing-impaired students,

and it helps the teachers, so they don’t strain their voices.” The district has planned a dedication ceremony for the new school for Saturday, Sept. 17. Powers said parent-teacher meet-and-greets will be held the first week of school, but that she would like to give teachers the opportunity to settle into their classrooms before inviting in the general public. “We’re very excited,” she said.

Yarmouth resident comes home to release CD By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — Whether she is singing, acting, performing or writing songs, 24year old Laura Darrell loves entertaining. Her new EP, “Mad Mad Me,” is a compilation of songs that include folk and pop tunes. She sings all the vocals and is accompanied by piano and stringed instruments. After graduating from Yarmouth High School, Darrell attended the University of Southern California School of Theater, where she was a Phi Beta Kappa scholar and graduated with high honors. She is a conservatory trained actress, and performed in main stage productions and thesis films at USC and New York University. Darrell played a leading role in the independent film “City of Angers” last year, and booked two more independent features, “That’s What She Said” and “Love and Death in Atlantic City.” Darrell started recording at age 13, and used her talent to help others, too. She raised money for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program with a Christmas album and Maine PBS special, and raised money for a Habitat for Humanity house in Yarmouth with an album of musical theater songs. This album, she said, is different. “This CD is my first exploration into who I am as a pop, folk artist,” she said. “These are covers and original songs. I wasn’t interested in a cohesive brand, but wanted to offer a plethora of options.” She said it took more than a year to complete the album because she was busy with off-Broadway shows and her producer, Con Fullam, was busy, too. “It took a while, but it was fun and a huge musical self-discovery,” she said.

Laura Darrell, a singer, actress and songwriter, released her EP “Mad Mad Me,” a mix of pop and folk tunes. She said she plans to return to the Portland area this summer to perform and hold a CD release party.

Darrell is starting to experiment with writing songs as well, she said. “I have an eclectic sense of music,” she said. “My main inspiration for this EP was Eva Cassidy. I wanted to put a lot of emotion in it, keep it dramatic with a lot of meaty songs.”

She said her influences include Norah Jones and Basia, Ingrid Michaelson and other popular folk artists.

Copies are available at Bull Moose stores and at Clayton’s Restaurant and Handy Andy’s in Yarmouth. Darrell said she plans to be in Maine over the summer, and will hold a CD release party and perform in Portland. In the meantime, she is busy booking gigs in New York. “I really prefer whatever I’m doing at the moment,” she said. “I love recording and the intimacy of the studio, but also love getting on stage.

Cumberland man makes furniture making an art By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — A chair or table crafted by Gregg Lipton isn’t just a functional piece of furniture; it could also be considered something of a work of art. Lipton uses wood, veneer, glass and metal to make custom contemporary furnishings. The product line that he designs and handcrafts includes dining and occasional tables, seating, casework, desks and cabinets, beds and headboards. His business, Gregg Lipton Furniture, also does commission work. Lipton’s custom commissions fit into specialized environments such as office suites, restaurants and other public spaces, and his designs also appear in many homes.

The UPS Store

®

Lipton, 53, started his business in Portland in 1987 and moved it to Cumberland three years later. He does his work in an 1860s lumber mill that ran until the 1940s and later became a summer home. About 20 percent of his clients are in Maine, while the bulk are in more metropolitan areas such as Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. His contemporary works are “just the kind of design and style that comes out of me,” he said last week. “It’s funny; I don’t necessarily live with this style, but this is what I design and make.” Lipton noted that “I just haven’t been continued page 28

Stop me before I increase government, again Both my children are physically active. In addition to a soccer-playing son, I have a lacrosse-playing daughter. As I imagine most parents do, I want the best for both. While my wife tends to emphasize academics, I tend to focus on sports. Short I believe that sports are an important part of a wellrounded education. Call it a gender-linked bias, but a report commissioned by the Portland Public Schools found that the grade point average of students who participate in athletics is 8.825 percent higher than those who do not. Last month, I attended the Portland High School girls’ lacrosse team banquet. Team parents put on a generous Halsey Frank potluck dinner to celebrate their children’s athletic accomplishments. Coaches honored players with awards and anecdotes and tokens of esteem. The whole event was characterized by a spirit of camaraderie.

Relief

At the end of the evening, we were summarily informed that the superintendent of schools had decided to abolish the current, team-specific booster system. It was a bit of a downer. These booster organizations are made up of parents of players. Boosters support their children’s sports in various ways, including by raising money. For the 2009-2010 season, boosters at Deering and Portland high schools raised a total of about $174,000. In recent years, boosters have filled the gap when the school budget was in crisis and spending for athletics was being cut before other programs. We were members of the girls lacrosse booster organization. During the season, we were peppered with emails about things that we could do to support the team, like help staff the concession stand and ticket booths at Fitzpatrick Stadium home games. At dinner, we were told that in the future, there would be an umbrella organization. The plan is detailed in several documents, including 10 pages of proposed bylaws. It provides for the creation of a foundation to be in charge of fundraising, with the goal of reaching $400,000 in giving by fiscal year 2015. The money that the foundation raises will be pooled and divided up by a board. The original plan provided for a paid administrator (at about $100,000 in total salary and benefits) to ensure central office oversight of

booster finances. It includes co-administrators at Deering and at Portland high schools. The change was motivated by a concern that the current system was inequitable and might run afoul of Title IX. As amended in 1972, the federal law prohibits schools that receive direct or indirect federal financial assistance from discriminating against anyone on the basis of their gender. A 2006 study found that over 29 years between 1977 and 2006, when Title IX was in effect, the number of girls participating in high school sports increased by a factor of 9. The Portland school system’s legal counsel analyzed its sports programs. It found them largely compliant. The programs accommodated students’ interests and abilities. Girls participated in sports at rates slightly less than, but still comparable to, boys. Girls were given similar opportunities to compete. They were treated equally in terms of school-provided equipment, supplies, scheduling of games and practice time, travel budget, coaching, training and medical care, publicity and administrative assistance. There was a discrepancy between the locker rooms and facilities available to boys continued page 13

Robert Barnes, CFSP Jones, Rich & Hutchins Funeral Home & Cremation Services

Q: I know I want to be cremated, but I’m not sure I want a memorial service. Any advice?

A: In my experience, a funeral or memorial service can be very important for those you’re leaving behind. Many of those who don’t want memorialization may not realize that a ceremony can help your loved ones begin to accept your passing. A memorial gives people who are close to you the time to come together and celebrate your life – and the chance to say goodbye. Without such a service, people sometimes struggle to find the closure they will need. With cremation, you are not limited when it comes to memorialization nor do you have to use a cremation society. Your neighborhood funeral home and cemetery can offer traditional services or completely personalized memorials, ground burial of cremated remains, or placement in a mausoleum or columbarium. While some choose to scatter ashes or keep them in the family home, others have found that the placement of an urn in a cemetery provides a permanent place for loved ones to visit at any time, for generations to come. If you have more questions about your cremation options, visit your local funeral provider. They are a good source of information available to those choosing cremation.

Robert Barnes, CFSP has been a licensed practitioner for 35 years with Jones, Rich & Hutchins Funeral Home & Cremation Services, a member of the Dignity Memorial® network serving the Greater Portland community. He frequently offers funeral-related advice and counseling to area families. For information or to ask a question, contact Robert at 207-775-3763.

The view from away looks good from here

Just another day at the office “Thank you for choosing Tim Horton’s today, my name is Amy, how can I help you?” Amy touches her headset and flashes me that smile that says, “I may have to take this drive-through order first, but I’d rather be waiting on you.” It goes with the tone of voice she’s using for the drive-through customer, the voice that says, “I don’t care if there are 10 people at the counter. Your coffee The View and donut come first.” My understanding nod says, “Do what you have to do.” I’m a writer; she’s a shift supervisor, two professionals sharing a moment. Just another day at the office.

From Away

If I had a job, I’d have a real office. Writers don’t have jobs. We have careers: long periods of existential despair punctuated by occasional checks. I can only stare into the abyss of a Mike Langworthy blank page in silence or surrounded by white noise. I have neither in my house. The Glickman Library on USM’s Portland campus worked for silence until somebody hijacked my network password and got me suspended. Not even for downloading porn. Video games. How humiliating is that? But when one door closes, another one opens; in this case, the door to the Tim Horton’s “over by Shaw’s” (there must be 20 Shaw’s around here, but say “over by Shaw’s,” Portlanders will know which one you’re talking about. Paging Stephen King.). It was new, attractive, free wi-fi, accessible outlet, doughnuts that tasted like love and Muzak that skewed heavily to ‘90s dance party: white noise. Hello, Tim Horton’s. Daddy’s home. Because this is Portland, I was on a first-name basis with the owner in days. Carol inspired me with her energy and an engaging mixture of apprehension and excitement about the business. She even gave me cognitive whiplash one day by pulling into the lot on a Harley, wearing full riding leathers.

me.” When I demand out of the blue, “Maybe I do want a doughnut; is that so wrong?” Shannon flashes her million-dollar smile and rolls with it. When I deadpan repeatedly, “Hey, Joe, where you goin’ with that gun in your hand?,” because if an ancient musical reference is kind of funny once, the same one a million times must be hilarious, Joe rolls with it. I’ve learned snippets about them in between refills – the Mount Holyoke grad who is saving up for her master’s, the graffiti artist who showed me some amazing examples, the guy who looks like he’s always between band practices. One of my favorites is in almost ecstatically in recovery – I’m not sure from what – and is just happy to be there, or anywhere. Collectively, they say a lot about America in the new millennium. I’m more than a regular. Regulars are at the place; I am of the place. Even the people who are there every day, the African cabbies or the native Mainers who drive cherry-pickers, have a cruller, solve the world’s problems for a few minutes and head off to work. When I’m there, I am at work. That makes the regulars fodder, if only for my macabre imagination. Like the woman who comes in often, carrying the same tightly wrapped parcel. She seems perfectly nice. The package doesn’t really contain her dead husband’s embalmed head (probably). For a while, an almost-but-not-quite-handsome man (he looked like Viggo Mortensen pulled from the oven an hour early; I called him Viggo Lite) tried to usurp my position. I knew they’d never let two people monopolize tables for hours at a time, and he was just some loser staring at his laptop. I was an author. Staring at his laptop. I had to hope Carol would appreciate that distinction. One day, he disappeared as suddenly as he had appeared, broken, no doubt, by my superior skill at inactivity. Occasionally, I regret never talking to the regulars, like when I watch “Thin Maria Callas As Medea.” I named her for the opera star she resembles, including the bottomless reservoir of pain behind her eyes. You can’t really tell her age, but you sense her life journey has been a long one, and they have not been highway miles. She wields a well-thumbed, heavily noted copy of the AA Blue Book as she counsels a stream of women in various stages of getting their lives back. If AA’s rules didn’t prevent me from intruding, my own rules would. But it’s intriguing to watch this rising angel at work. It’s just one small business. Similar stories are being played out all over the place. But I’m here, and I’m glad. And I hope Carol knows that her one small business is also a community, a 12-step sanctuary and sometimes even a muse.

My first impression of Mike Langworthy was that his wife was very nice. And he was cranky. It was a couple years ago, and our families were having brunch at Caiola’s in Portland’s West End. We were set up by my cousin who lives outside Cincinnati, a childhood Editor’s friend of Mike’s wife, Carol. Besides the family tie, we had other things in common. For starters, both of our families moved to Maine from California. My wife and I immigrated in 1984; Mike and Carol had recently moved after deciding to live closer to the Massachusetts prep school one of their kids would be attending. Law was another common bond. My wife is a journalistMo Mehlsak turned-lawyer; Mike is a lawyer-turned-writer. And true to my cousin’s word, Carol was friendly, engaging, talkative, interesting and amusing. But Mike seemed out of sorts that day at breakfast, distracted and hardly funny. Not what you’d expect from an attorney who lately made his living as a stand-up comic and TV sitcom producer and writer (“Cybill,” “8 Simple Rules” and “The Drew Carey Show,” among others). But there was something about his demeanor and distractedness, the way he would intermittently zero in on the discussion with unusually perceptive comments that also made me want to get to know Mike better. Maybe it was the story behind moving from law to comedy. Or maybe it was the story behind the move from California to Maine, where he planned to get serious about

writing. Either way, Mike seemed quirky, intelligent and blunt enough to be able to offer interesting and coherent observations on almost any topic. So I asked him if he had any desire to write for The Forecaster. He said yes, and promised to send along a sample or two. We had brunch several more times over the next few months, at The Good Egg or Local 188, and each time Mike would promise to show me his work. And each time, there’d be nothing. I stopped asking. When he finally did send something, it was much too long – and it knocked my socks off. It was a travelogue of sorts about the move to Maine, the Langworthy family, first impressions of Portland. It was painful, and painfully funny, written with sarcasm, criticism, insight, love, hate, x-ray vision and a view of Mike’s mind that only he could have. I told him that whenever he was ready, he knew where to find me. After completing a two-year creative nonfiction program at the Stonecoast School for Creative Writing at the University of Southern Maine, he did. Mike’s column, the aptly named “The View from Away,” starts this week. It will run every other week, alternating weeks with Sandi Amorello’s “No Sugar Added.” I think you’ll agree it was worth the wait. Mo Mehlsak is editor of The Forecaster.

Falmouth’s town center already exists Add my name to the list of “lame-brainers” who along with Fred Chase voted against the so-called “Town Center” plan in Falmouth. I think letter-writer Joe O’Donnell owes Fred an apology. Twenty years ago the village center was conceived. This was planned around the Route1 corridor. At first there were a lot of mistakes made and corrected. Today, much has taken place and the center is growing. The auto dealers were forced out, but we have shiny new banks on every corner. Marie C. Brown Falmouth

Short Relief from page 11 at Fitzpatrick Stadium versus those available to girls at Payson Park. The major area of concern was the equipment, coaching and incidental benefits provided by boosters. To the extent that information about booster finances was available and reliable, it showed disparities between the support that boys and girls sports received. The disparity was greatest between the 2008-2009 Deering football boosters and the most financially comparable Deering girls’ sport boosters, basketball. The boys football boosters provided about $40,000 worth of support, while the girls basketball boosters provided about $10,000. While acknowledging that boosters’ efforts were private in nature, the lawyer opined that their cumulative disparate impact could violate Title IX’s non-discrimination requirement. It turns out that the superintendent’s decision was not quite the done deal described at the lacrosse banquet. At the June 21 School Committee meeting, the superintendent proposed a consolidation plan and scheduled a couple of public meetings to get feedback. A parent’s devotion to their child is a powerful force. Parents will do more for their own child than for others’ kids. It’s not a gender-based bias. It’s a kinship bias. People favor their own family. That’s not bad. It’s the building block of society. The problem arises when you aggregate individual parents’ acts of devotion. When you step back and look at the larger picture, what started out as a parent’s love for their child begins to look like a pattern of booster organizations favoring boys’ sports over girls’.

Weight, weight, don’t tell me As I have not until very recently had a weight problem, I’m afraid I have not been very sympathetic toward people who do. Now that I’m up to (wait, wait, let me go weigh myself) 190 pounds, I’m suddenly aware of how easy it is to gain weight and how hard it is to lose. When I quit smoking in January, I weighed 165, so now I’m 25 pounds The Universal overweight. According to most height-weight charts, at 5 feet 11 inches my ideal weight would be 155, but I figured 165 for a sedentary 62-year-old wasn’t too bad. Then came the beer. I don’t think I’d had a glass of beer for 15 years or so until I stopped smoking. Then I managed to replace one bad habit with another. Carolyn thinks Edgar Allen Beem it may be the Hagen Daz Rum Raisin and Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk, but I’m pretty sure it’s those two Pabst Pounders a night that are responsible for the bloat of the past six months. I suppose I could just try canning the PBR, but I’m worried about what might come next. This being Maine, beer and ice cream can be the gateway drugs that lead to Jell-O shots and Allen’s Coffee Brandy. So here I am with a cold brew in hand contemplating my navel. Yes, I can still see it, but what is my gut doing hanging over my belt? It didn’t do that last time I looked. Maybe if I untuck my shirt no one will notice. We live in a culture that worships the thin. “You can’t be too rich or too thin,” as socialite Babe Paley (or was it socialite Wallis Simpson?) used to say. Unless, of course, you’re anorexic. There is a prejudice against people who are overweight that assumes some sort of failure of willpower or self-discipline on their part. I’m afraid I’ve been guilty of this bias myself. The epidemic of obesity in this country is all over

Notebook

However, if you combat that favoritism by consolidating and reeling in the booster organizations, then what had been a relatively private effort starts to become official, bureaucratic, rule-bound, public school action. What had been largely voluntary starts to become more obligatory. What had been a donation becomes a mandatory user fee.

the news these days. Michelle Obama has made childhood obesity one of her causes. And it was reported last week that Maine is the fattest state in New England, with 26.5 percent of adults overweight. I guess I’m now part of the problem. To be perfectly honest though, I don’t know how I feel about government and employer programs to get people to lose weight. On the one hand, I suppose it is a public-health issue that has a major impact on the cost of health care. On the other, (don’t let any libertarians hear me say this) it does smack a bit of a nanny state. Your body is your personal responsibility, right? I’d like to take credit for staying in shape for 62 years, but I’ve been thin all my life through no effort of my own. It’s all genetics and metabolism. I can’t think of an overweight blood relative on either side of the family. I was the proverbial 90-pound weakling in high school and I only weighed 140 pounds when I got married. I had a 28-inch waist in college. Now I’m up to 35 inches and counting. For most of my life I have been able to eat or drink anything I want in any amount without gaining weight. My body image problems have always been related to being an ectomorph, so concerns about a beer belly are new to me. Now I feel like a beached whale at the beach, but as a kid, I was self-conscious about my ribs showing and my girly arms. Then, sometime in high school, I realized that the girls to whom I was attracted were not all that interested in muscles. I found I could compensate for my lessthan-manly physique with intelligence, wit, and some strategic sweet-talking. I could try compensating for my new girth the same way, but Carolyn has been on to me from the beginning. “You just keep talking, honey,” she likes to say when I’m digging a verbal hole for myself. Nope. No way around it. I’ve got to start losing weight. I’m not sure I could forgive myself if I hit 200. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Eva Gojzewski, 89: Known for her faith, resiliency and pizzazz PORTLAND — Eva Gojzewski, 89, of Falmouth, died unexpectedly at Maine Medical Center on July 4 with her daughter at her side. Born on May 25, 1922, in Rudki, Poland, she was the youngest of three daughters of Marcela Papuzynski and Albin Horak. In 1946 she arGojzewski rived in Brooklyn, N.Y., pregnant and carrying one suitcase, with her husband George Petrio-Gorski, a Russian pianist and orchestra conductor. In 1955 she married Edward Gojzewski, an engineer with GTE, and lived together in Massachussetts until his death in 2000. She moved to OceanView at Falmouth in 2006 to be close to her daughter. A remarkable woman who experienced firsthand the many horrors of World War II, she endured lack of food, multiple bombings and living as a refuge in Hungary. Her ability to speak four European languages enabled her to survive the difficult times. Her faith in God radiated throughout her life. Friends described her as a role model because of her enthusiasm for life,

positive attitude, sense of humor, joyous laughter and her staunch resiliency. She was known for her elegance, style, sense of fashion and pizazz. In addition to being an avid reader, she loved opera and enjoyed attending performances at Portland Symphony, Maine State Music Theatre, Portland Stage Co. and Theater at Monmouth with her companion, David Astor. Another favorite pastime was taking drives with “her Dave” to places like Poland Springs, which reminded her of the area where she grew up in Poland. Her family would like to thank the residents and staff of OceanView for the happy and satisfying life she enjoyed there. Surviving are her daughter Lori Shuman of Cumberland Foreside; her grand-

Firecrackers sparkle at nationals

By Michael Hoffer Two Maine Firecrackers AAU girls’ basketball teams traveled to Florida last week and stole the show. The eighth grade squad, featuring several players from Forecaster Country, made it all the way to the Division II championship game before falling just short. If that wasn’t impressive enough, the ninth grade team also made the finals Sunday and finished the job in dramatic fashion, becoming the finest team in the country. That champion squad included Ashley Briggs of Scarborough, Allie Clement of Falmouth (who played a huge role on McAuley’s 2011 Gold Ball winner), Sarah Clement, Bailey Cote of Biddeford, Nina Davenport of Freeport (who also played at McAuley last winter), Sam Frost of Windham, Camille Giardina, Brianne Maloney of South Portland, Olivia Shaw of Saco, Olivia Smith of Yarmouth (who will attend McAuley this year) and

What’s good (and not so good) about baseball’s All-Star Game By Bryan O’Connor Like any all-star game, baseball’s midsummer classic has its features and its flaws, its friends and its foes. For decades, it set the standard for sports all-star games, an intense inter-league rivalry burning at the core of an annual showcase of great talent and larger-than-life personalities. In recent years, the game has grown somewhat stale, alienating some of its fan base with new rules and changing dynamics. I still consider the All-Star Game one of the highlights of the MLB season. Here are three reasons to love the All-Star Game, along with two reasons it’s not what it used to be:

It’s a showcase of elite talent. Theoretically, the best player at each position in each league starts the game. The reserves are world-class as well, sometimes better than the starters, and the bullpen is stacked with the game’s best starters and relievers. Best of all, they’re all in one place, cracking jokes at the Home Run Derby, hugging and high-fiving regular season rivals as they drive each other in or turn a great double play. The World Series usually gives

us two great teams, but only in the All-Star Game can we watch Justin Verlander pitch against Matt Kemp, Prince Fielder and Joey Votto in succession.

The talent isn’t always elite. Verlander won’t pitch in this year’s game because he pitched on the final Sunday of the first half. Several other great pitchers will back out for the same reason, and players like Derek Jeter will take the week to nurse minor injuries that wouldn’t keep them out of a regular season game. A player who opts out of the game is replaced by the third-or-fourth best player at his position — often someone having a decent season but without any real star power. Sometimes, as in Jeter’s case, the starters are selected for the game based solely on star power, years after their tenure as useful major leaguers has lapsed. Jhonny “Sic” Peralta won’t make this year’s game despite having a much better season than Jeter. Conversely, Albert Pujols won’t be there because he’s not having as strong a season as Fielder and Votto. We can’t always get the biggest names and the best players in the game. continued page 25

The Maine Firecrackers eighth grade team reached the finals of the national tournament before losing to Texas. Back row (left to right): Coach Doug Adams, Casey Simpson, Alexis Redmond, Victoria Lux, Ashley Storey, Sam Sparda, Coach Brian Clement. Front row: Abby Hamilton, Camille Giardina, Bailey Adams, Sarah Clement, Ashley Briggs, Katie McCrum.

Firecrackers capped their magical run with a 55-48 victory over Ohio. Allie Clement led the way with 17 points (13 in the second half). Shaw added 12 points and Smith and Briggs each had eight. “Nina and Allie were able to be part of a high school state title and D2 national championship, they worked hard but are extremely fortunate,” said coach Clement. “We struggled in the first half but got it going in the second. The odds of our eighth grade team making it to the final out of 61 teams and our ninth

making it out of 36 is extremely low. When you consider we are from Maine, even much lower. As far as I know, 11th place is the highest finish ever by a Maine team, so to have two teams from Maine and from the same program finish so well is a nice story.” If the title wasn’t enough of a thrill for the players, what made it even better was the presence of Duke women’s coach Joanne McCallie (Allie Clement’s aunt) and new University of Maine women’s coach Richard Barron.

21

“It was good Coach Barron was there to see,” said coach Clement. “Joanne was cheering like crazy and I had to think that what she has done helped us. Hopefully we are elevating the level of Maine girls’ basketball further.” The eighth graders wound up second out of 61 teams, beating the state champions from Maryland and Tennessee, along with others from Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. The Firecrackers beat the Tennessee Glory, 49-43, in the final four before falling short to the Texas Tigers, 63-43, in the national championship game. Camille Giardina and Vic Lux each scored 13 points, while Ashley Storey of Cumberland had eight and Sarah Clement from Falmouth added seven. Giardina and Clement lead the team in scoring for the tournament, averaging 13 points each. Lux averaged eight points and nine rebounds, Storey seven rebounds and four blocks.

Spring all-stars were plentiful Falmouth junior goalie Cam Bell led the Yachtsmen to their first state championship this season and was named to the Western Maine Conference all-star team.

By Michael Hoffer Once again in 2011, local spring standouts produced allstar performances aplenty and were awarded for their play. Whether the sport was baseball, softball, lacrosse, track or tennis, the best athletes from the area made an indelible mark. Here’s a glimpse at the spring all-star teams and who was selected.

Baseball The 2011 baseball season was one of excitement as four of five local teams made the playoffs and Greely went on to the state final. The Western Maine Conference Class B first team included Falmouth utility Matt MacDowell and pitcher Dillon Dresser, Freeport outfielder Luke LaMagna, Greely pitcher Mike Leeman, third baseman Liam Maker and catcher Pete Stauber and Yarmouth outfielders Campbell Belisle-Haley and Luke Pierce and first baseman Aidan Sullivan. The second team featured Falmouth outfielder Brett Emmertz and first baseman Ben

Baseball from page 21 Furthermore, the rule requiring each team to be represented in the All-Star Game waters down the talent pool. Does anyone really want to see Aaron Crow pitch against Hunter Pence just because their teams don’t have anyone better to call an All-Star?

It’s a fascinating puzzle for managers. I’m a fan of American League baseball, so I don’t get to witness NL strategy too often. The Red Sox tend to start and finish games with the same nine hitters and a regular season game might have two or three pitching changes. In the All-Star Game, the managers whose teams made the previous year’s World Series have to deal with 30-something larger-than-life egos, some of whom play for them all year, while others play for bitter rivals. Their primary goal tends to be finding an inning or an at-bat for everyone, while saving a pitcher or two in case the game goes into extra innings. This takes serious skill and mastery of the art of the double switch, which replaces a pitcher and a position player at the same time, generally switching their spots in the batting order to bring a better hitter (or just one who may not otherwise get an at-bat) to the plate in the next inning. Of course, the manager’s other goal is to win the game, which tends to be a competitive one. While the American League had won 12 consecutive decisions (excluding 2002’s tie) before losing last year, six straight games have been decided by one or two runs. This makes for great theater, except that...

The players don’t really care. From the first All-Star Game in 1933 to the introduction of inter-league play in 1997, American League players rarely had a chance to play against their National League counterparts. Aside from the World Series, there was no way to pit the leagues against each other to determine which was the superior league. From the AL sweeping the first three games and taking seven of eight in the 1940s to the National League winning 19 of 20 between1963 and 1982, the All-Star Game settled the debate of league superiority. Iconic moments like Stan Musial’s 12th inning walk-off homer (yeah, the starters were still in the game back then) and Pete Rose barreling over Ray Fosse at home plate were born of an intense rivalry and great league pride.

In recent years, players have had more opportunities to play against each other throughout the year, both through interleague play and more player movement. Trades have always been a part of the game, but free agency is less than 40 years old and the practice of offloading highpriced stars for prospects at the July trade deadline is even newer. If former Blue Jay and current Phillie Roy Halladay pitches to David Ortiz in this year’s game, it will be the 107th time the two have faced off. Halladay will look for his 17th strikeout of Ortiz, while Ortiz will try to take Halladay deep for the seventh time. Business as usual. After the aforementioned tie, baseball commissioner Bud Selig introduced an incentive to keep the game competitive, awarding home field advantage in the World Series to the team from the league that won the All-Star Game. I’ve seen little evidence that this reward has motivated the players, as dozens of players opt out of the game every year and as far as I know, no starter has begged his manager to let him play the whole game. Most of the players in the game won’t even see the World Series, and even if they do, no World Series has gone seven games since 2002, so home field advantage hasn’t meant much.

It’s a subject of great debate. Despite all its faults, baseball’s All-Star Game will always be entertaining for one reason above all: debate. The fans vote on the starters, which tends to skew the results toward established stars and players who play in bigger markets with more fans. Most of the reserves and some of the pitchers are chosen by the players themselves, in a convoluted process that usually picks several worthy players and a few head-scratchers. The remaining players are chosen by the managers, who have to be sure every team is represented before choosing players who will help their team win the game. As fans, we love the opportunity to influence the game by voting, and we bemoan the fact that other fans get to vote in their hometown guys ahead of ours. We chastise the managers for going with their own guy over a more qualified player (anyone remember Ryan Howard over Joey Votto in 2010?). We question what stats everyone else was looking at when they overlooked the guy leading the league in the stats we view as important. All of this is what makes Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game fun for baseball fans. Even if the players would rather take a few days off.

Entertaining in a pet-friendly home Pets are prized pals in many households. However, guests invited over for a special occasion who are not as enamored with animals may not be anxious about sharing party space with Fido or the family feline. In such instances, it’s up to the host to make guests feel more comfortable. In the days leading up to the party, consult guests about any pet allergies. If a person who will be coming over is allergic to cats or dogs, thoroughly clean and air out the house. Regardless of how diligent a host is, it only takes a little bit of an irritant to trigger an allergic reaction. As a courtesy to guests who are a little

intimidated by pets, keep the dog or cat in a separate room. Be sure to feed and walk the animal prior to company coming over so he or she will be comfortable. Do not yell at the pet or make it feel like the seclusion is a punishment. If young children will be in attendance, it can be a good idea to keep pets secured in another area as a precaution. Even the best-behaved pets may become skittish with a lot of people around and act out of character. Young children are prone to pulling on dogs’ ears or engaging in chase and teasing behaviors.

King of the road from page 2 King started chatting with another hiker who asked where he was from. “Maine,” King said. “Oh,” the hiker exclaimed, “I heard on the radio the governor of Maine is traveling out West in his RV.” “I said, ‘yeah, so I hear,’” King recalled, laughing. “People would ask me at RV parks what I did, and I would just say I’m a retired state employee, that was my standard answer.” He did, occasionally, run in to other traveling Mainers who recognized him. He ran into an employee of Kennebunk

Savings Bank who was attending a banking conference in Las Vegas while taking the elevator to the bottom of the Hoover Dam. She spotted him immediately, despite the bushy white beard he had grown. “Gov. King!” she called out, “you’ve gone native!” Despite the occasional personal encounter, King purposefully kept his distance from Maine politics and news during the trip. Instead of checking in with legislators and advisers, he checked overpass heights on upcoming stretches of highway. Instead of worrying about the budget, he worried about whether there was a dump station at the next RV park.

Some pet parents find that bringing pets to a boarder or pet daycare on the day of their party is a wise idea. This way the pet is away from the commotion and he or she can enjoy time with other animals. Parties can be stressful for animals as well. Keeping them away from the situation may be the most ideal solution.

The demands of the trip kept him occupied, and “sort of forced me to let go what was going on in Maine,” he said. “It turned out to be a great transition strategy.” In addition to helping King avoid the post-office depression that strikes many former elected officials, the trip gave him a new perspective on Maine.

King and his family loved their time on the road so much, he and Herman are considering taking another trip. In fact, King has already started searching for the perfect RV, and plans to hit the road as soon as his youngest child, Molly, goes to college.

“When you’re in a job like governor you’re very intensely, narrowly focused on Maine, center of the universe,” King said. “And there’s a feeling that our problems are worse than anywhere else. ... So to tour the country and see many other places that are coping with the same problems, it didn’t make Maine’s

Should guests be comfortable with pets around, be sure they are aware of some house rules. This includes not feeding the animal any table scraps or whatever else is priority in the house.

Although pets are an integral part of many people’s family dynamic, guest comfort takes precedence over pets when it comes to opening up the home for a party or other gathering.

Council from page 1 concerned that meeting privately with developers before an RFP is drafted would give the impression the town had already decided who would get the project and reduce the number of proposals, ultimately, the council voted unanimously to go into executive session. Before hearing Sea Coast’s presentation about what the company would like to do with the school property, which has not yet been turned over to the town by the School Department, councilors publicly discussed whether what they were doing was legal. “I don’t see any harm in talking to people, as long as you’re willing to talk to everyone,” said town attorney Bill

Plouffe, of the Portland law firm Drummond Woodsum. “A level playing field is embedded in this process.” Plouffe emphasized that the Town Charter and town ordinances require a competitive bid process for dispensation of any town property. However, he added that the council could decide to waive the competitive process if it believes there are “unusual circumstances.” Councilor Fred Chase, who asked for the discussion, said he wanted to know what Sea Coast was thinking before the council approves issues a request for proposals. “We were elected to represent the taxpayers of this town. We weren’t elected to sit on our hands and determine whether we’re doing something illegal or legal,” Chase said.

The council decided it would meet in executive sessions with any developer interested in the school property at its next meeting. Town Manager Nathan Poore said after the meeting that the information would be advertised on the town’s cable TV channel. “It’s important not to give one person a leg up,” Plouffe said. “Are you forbidden from talking to one person? I don’t think so, but be careful how you do it.” The councilors voted unanimously to go into executive session with OceanView, which, according to Chase, lasted until 11 p.m. “We needed to hear from them,” he said Tuesday.

Chase said he felt the circumstances are unusual because OceanView abuts the school property on three sides, and also because the property is “solid ledge,” meaning any development there will require blasting. “Any other development is going to have to come up under their window and start blasting,” Chase said. “Most of their residents, they own their own houses. They’re just like any other neighborhood in Falmouth.” Newly elected Councilor Chris Orestis said Tuesday that he felt comfortable the process would be a “level playing field,” because there are councilors who will make sure that’s the case. “I recognize deal fatigue when I see it,” said Orestis, adding that he believes it is important to continue the competitive bidding process and get the best deal for Falmouth. He said often people tell him they wish government functioned more like a business. “If you want us to run things like a smart business, then that’s what we’re going to do. Sometimes that might mean it takes a little longer,” he said. The council will review a draft of the request for proposals on Aug. 8 and act on it Aug. 22.

stuck in any one look,” and the influences on his work vary – one circle-back chair he designed is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s barrel chair. He has done work for the Chebeague Island Inn, as well as the White Barn Inn in Kennebunk, New York City establishments, and several other places throughout the country, as well as for the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. He just shipped two chairs to a client in Sidney, Australia. Lipton, whose benches can also be found at the Portland Museum of Art, noted that Maine has a strong furniture community. “I love my peers up here,” he said, “I’d say the majority of the work that they do is more reproduction-like; a little more traditional.” For him, getting into furniture making was turning a hobby into a career. Although he once helped start a construction company, he found that he wanted to work on a different scale. Lipton was the only Maine exhibitor at the 29th Smithsonian Craft Show in April – which he noted was unusual – and only one of seven furniture exhibitors among the total 120. Lipton’s other show this year will be this November, in Philadelphia. While Lipton’s work has strong aesthetic qualities, he wants his clients to embrace the functional aspects of his designs. For example, he said he would encourage clients concerned about protecting a table he made to use the furniture for its intended purpose. “It’ll still be around; it’s not going to fall apart,” he said. “It’ll show some character.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@ theforecaster.net.

Steamer from page 1 playing Steamer. She said one Steamer was a very shy, reserved person; once inside the costume, they became an outgoing, animated mascot. “The Steamer costume gives people the chance to be someone else, to make people happy and to have a different personality,” she said. According to one Yarmouth resident who has played Steamer (and who will remain anonymous) the costume is hot, but well-ventilated. He said there is a fan in the hat and a custom-made vest lined with ice packs to keep the person inside cool. “It gets really hot in there, so it’s not advisable to go longer than a few hours,” he said. “You can’t see very well either, so a handler helps guide Steamer around curbs and other obstacles. They also help with crowd control.” Whoever plays Steamer has to know the signature moves, the former mascot said. There is the big open-handed wave, the thumbs-up move and lots of highfives to hand out, he said. And it’s very important to be over the top and exaggerated with the movements. “The beauty of being Steamer is that he has fun with the young kids, but also the college-aged kids and the adults,” he said. “This is for the volunteers as much as for those who visit. Steamer is about boosting morale for the volunteers who do this year after year without any compensation.” He said he likes to visit the volunteers who run the food booths and always makes an appearance at the Clam Shucking contest. ♥

But being Steamer is not all fun and games. Kids try to look inside or move the costume around to discover who it is and many people want to take silly pictures, he said. And Steamer doesn’t make any night appearances after being pushed down at a block party one year. “It’s impossible to get back up when you are down,” he said. He said it can be uncomfortable when people make comments about Steamer’s legs, especially when it’s an older gentleman or someone he knows. “Every year I hear ‘nice legs,’” he said. “Why some people assume Steamer is a girl I’ll never know.” Another important skill Steamer has to have is the ability to determine when kids are scared or have had enough of the mascot. “It’s a skill to know when to back off,” he said. “When you see the child start to make that face, you have to know when to back off, give a small finger wave and move on. You have to be very careful not to be too big, or it can backfire.” But overall, the former mascot said it is an honor to play the festival mascot. This Friday, July 15, a new mascot will make its debut: Littleneck the Clam. The Littleneck mascot is smaller than Steamer, and can be played by a child or a smaller adult, Schuster said. “Little Neck will be a great addition to the festival,” she said. This year’s festival is from July 15-17. For more information, visit www.clamfestival.com.

Out & About

Brunswick boasts 2 music festivals By Scott Andrews July marks the high season for Maine’s many music festivals, and Brunswick is the venue for two of them this weekend. The Bowdoin International Music Festival is Maine’s biggest classical gathering, boasting about 80 concerts by established professional musicians, well-known ensembles and the upper echelon of conservatory students. Most of these performances are held on the Bowdoin College campus in Brunswick. BIMF enters its third (of six) weeks this Friday in a concert that features the final 2011 Bowdoin performance of one of the top string quartets in the U.S. Brunswick is also the venue for one of Maine’s most modest bluegrass events. The White’s Beach Family Bluegrass Festival, which runs July 15-17, has been a showcase for Maine bands for the more than a decade. Back in Portland, New York organist Stephen Tharp will be the next performer in the 99th summer concert series on the mighty Kotzschmar Memorial Organ.

Bowdoin International Music Festival Of all Maine’s dozen-plus classical music festivals, none matches the size and artistic scope of the Bowdoin International Music Festival, a fixture of the Mid-Coast cultural community for 47 years. The festival got started as a modest series of chamber music concerts in the summer of 1964 when the late Robert K. Beckwith, then chairman of the Bowdoin College music department, hired an ensemble fronted by Lewis Kaplan, an eager and ambitious Juilliard violin teacher. Kaplan is now one of Juilliard’s most senior and most esteemed master pedagogues, and the modest concert series has now expanded to a six-week gathering of more than 200 students – mostly enrolled in conservatories or pre-professional programs – and a faculty of about 50 who guide advanced studies and coach chamber music ensembles. There are three concert series that mostly feature the festival faculty, interspersed with a few students. The flagship series runs Fridays. On July 15, the program highlight will be a performance by the nationally renowned Ying Quartet in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s String Quartet in D Major, one of a set of six ground-breaking quartets written in the early 1780s. Top billing on the Monday Sonata series for July 18 will be two long-time BIMF regulars, violinist Sergiu Schwartz and

pianist Peter Basquin. On Wednesday, July 20, the Upbeat! series continues with a performance of a modern piece for harp and violin written by Jean Cras. The performers will be harpist June Han and violinist Muneko Otani. Friday concerts are held at Crooker Auditorium at Brunswick High School. The Monday and Wednesday series are held at Studzinski Hall on the Bowdoin College campus. All three concert series are slated for 7:30 p.m. Call 725-3895 or visit www. bowdoinfestival.org.

White’s Beach Bluegrass Festival Don’t expect to find any Juilliard violinists at the White’s Beach Bluegrass Festival in Brunswick. Just fiddlers galore. Plus banjos, guitars, mandolins, upright basses and the “high lonesome” tenor voices. One of Maine’s most modest bluegrass affairs, White’s Beach has primarily focused on showcasing in-state talent for nearly a decade and a half. The small stage, constructed to imitate a front porch, establishes the down-home flavor. I’ve attended this festival several times and enjoyed every visit. This year’s lineup of artists includes Phat Grass, Nit Pickers, Pine Hill Ramblers, Cribstone Bridge, Cliff Marshall Band and Mainely Grass. Bring lawn chairs, sunscreen and bug spray, and plunk yourself down for hours of music Friday evening, all day Saturday

Kotzschmar Memorial Organ When Pope Benedict XVI visited New York City in 2008, an organist was needed for three of the pontiff’s high-profile public events – a trio of services that would be attended by 60,000 people and broadcast live to millions around the world. To do the keyboard honors, the organizers of the papal visit turned to Stephen Tharp, the city’s top organist. Recognized as one of the foremost performers of our age, Tharp has played 35 solo intercontinental tours and more than 1,300 concerts worldwide since his professional career began in 1987, earning him the reputation as the most traveled organist of his generation. Tharp won’t need to hop between continents to play the mighty Kotzschmar Memorial Organ on July 19 as one of the 2011 summer season guest performers on

the behemoth instrument in Portland City Hall. The concert series, now in its 99th year, is sponsored by the Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ, a support group that helps the city maintain the huge machine. The Kotzschmar Organ was a gift to the city from publishing magnate Cyrus H.K. Curtis. It was named in honor of a Curtis family friend, Hermann Kotzschmar, a German immigrant who was the publisher’s childhood music teacher and the city’s most prominent musican in the late 19th century. Built by the Austin Organ Co. of Hartford, Conn., it was the second largest organ in the world when it was installed in 1912. The original organ was enlarged in 1927, again funded by Curtis. At this time the Antiphonal Organ was added, as well as a large number of ranks to the Swell division and a number of percussion stops. During a massive renovation project of the auditorium in the 1990s, a new and enlarged wind chest was constructed. Additional pipes were added in 2003. Today the Kotzschmar boasts nearly 6,900 pipes in 102 ranks in eight divisions: Swell, Great, Solo, Orchestral, Antiphonal, Echo, Pedal and Percussion. The Echo and Antiphonal divisions can be heard emanating from the large grid in the ceiling near the rear of the hall. The city and FOKO plan to raise more than $1 million for a new round of repairs and renovations with the intention of restoring the instrument to tip-top condition for its 100th season next year. In keeping with Tharp’s reputation as a champion of new music, his July 19 program is fairly heavily weighted toward modern compositions. Among them will be Eugenio Maria Fagiani’s Symphonic Suite based on Psalm 100, which was commissioned by the organist and dedicated to him. Earlier and better-known composers will be represented in works of Johann Sebastian Bach and Franz Liszt. Catch Stephen Tharp at the multiple keyboards of the mighty Kotzschmar Organ 7:30 p.m. July 19 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Pre-concert discussions are held at 6:30 p.m. in the rehearsal room. Visit www.foko.org.

‘Veggie boat’

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/94858

from page 1 Bustin’s islands in Casco Bay. And based on the crowd that gathers nearly every week, they seem to have made the right decision. “It’s hoppin’,” remarked Virginia Gaskins, who arrived early with her mother, Susan, to snatch up bacon, cabbage, cheese and chard. On Fourth of July weekend the veggie boat was cleaned out less than an hour after arriving, so Gaskins said she arrived early this time. She thinks the boat’s success is partially due to the fact that there aren’t a lot of places to buy local, organic produce on Chebeague. “You have to go to the mainland for (that),” she said.

Susan Stranahan, who picked up some garlic scapes, tomatoes and bacon, agreed. “You either do without, or go to the mainland,” she said of the way it used to be. But now, every Saturday morning during the summer, the produce comes to her. Stranahan also attributed the floating farmer’s market’s success to the crowd it draws. “It’s a social event,” she said. The Saturday morning hustle and bustle has also been beneficial for Vicki Todd, who manages The Niblic, a cafe, market and gift shop at the Chebeague

Island Boat Yard. She said when the farmers called her up last year and asked if they could dock at the boat yard, she was immediately interested. Veggie boat customers walk right past her shop on the way down to the dock, and many stop in for a coffee on the way. “It’s mutually beneficial,” she said. After about an hour, the crowd dies down and the farmers relax a little. The strawberries are long gone, as are the sticky buns and baguettes supplied by Standard Baking Co. in Portland. A few bunches of radishes, scapes and bouquets of flowers remain. Warren Wilmot, 29, runs up to the Niblic to buy a pint of chowder, and LeMaistre, 31, packs the remaining veggies back into their coolers. Ursula Wilmot, 29, crawls under the tarp at the front of the boat to check on her sleeping infant son. All three grew up in Freeport. Ursula Wilmot and LeMaistre are sisters whose parents run the cattle operation at Mitchell Ledge Farm. They had always toyed with the idea of taking over the farm, but didn’t want to concentrate on cattle. With Warren, Ursula’s husband, they decided to start a small vegetable farm and offer a few produce shares to community members.

But they weren’t convinced they could compete with the myriad of other small farms at local farmer’s markets. Islands, they decided, could be a niche market.

“At a farmer’s market we don’t have much to offer, but on a boat, we’re different,” LeMaistre said.

Warren Wilmot happens to work at a boat yard in South Freeport, and the women inherited a 1948 wooden launch from their grandparents. They outfitted it with a tent, and last summer, made their maiden voyage to Bustin’s and Chebeague.

“The boat was a huge question mark,” LeMaistre said, but almost immediately it became clear that the floating farmer’s market would be a hit. Vicki Todd said her customers at the Niblic had been asking all spring when the veggie boat was coming back.

Already the trio is thinking of expanding their service to other Casco Bay islands, and they’d like to increase the size of their eight-member CommunitySupported Agriculture group. But for this summer, they’re sticking with the two islands they already serve, and trying to increase the amount of produce they provide.

Still, islanders would be wise to get to the dock early.

“I wish we got here at 11,” said Joan Hilton, a Concord, Mass., resident who was renting a house on Chebeague, “because we missed the strawberries.” Emily Guerin can be reached at 781-3661 ext.123 or eguerin@theforecaster.net. Follow her on Twitter:@ guerinemily.

Shellfish from page 1 year on Long Island. “I’ve gone through at night and tried to find the floats,” McCatherin said. “Even squinting and using a spotlight to try to find them, it’s hard.” McCatherin and other recreational boaters who use Falmouth’s three moorings at Handy Boat, Portland Yacht Club and the Town Landing have expressed concern that the mussel farm that was installed in October 2010 could present hazards for boaters. The farm is in a route frequently used by recreational boaters traveling between Falmouth and Chandler Cove off Chebeague Island. “If you want to go out to Chebeague, you’re going to go that way,” McCatherin said. “It’s not the highest, but it’s one of the highest traveled corridors for recreational boats.” Calendar Island Mussels owner Peter Stocks, who owns the new floats, said the farm went through an extensive review process and was approved, not only by government agencies and the Coast Guard, but also by an extensive public hearing process. “It’s seasonal sailors, not fishermen, who are upset,” Stocks said. Stocks said he consulted with fishermen in the area when choosing the location, to make sure it was not in a heavily used area. “Basically, this is a problem that arises often with aquaculture,” Stocks said. “People say ‘we don’t mind aquaculture, we just don’t want it in our backyard.’” Sebastian Belle, executive director of the Maine Aquaculture Association, said Maine is the largest marine aquaculture producer in the country, and that mussels and oysters are the second largest types of farms in Maine, after salmon farms. “We import about 84 or 85 percent of the seafood we consume in this country,” Belle said. “That contributes about $9.5 to $9.8 billion to the trade deficit, and much of the seafood that’s imported is not tested for contaminants.” As a result, he said, there has been a big push to establish sustainable U.S. seafood industries, where fish can be grown and harvested in regulated environments. Belle said that when new farms go in, there is frequently push-back from the community, but that by the time the farms’ permits are up for renewal, required every 10 years, the critics have become supporters. “Once they get to know the farmers and see what this does for the community, they almost all become huge fans of the farm,” he said. But sailboat owner Susan Gilpin of Falmouth said she doesn’t have a problem with the aquaculture, just the placement of Stocks’ floats. “Over by Clapboard Island, there’s

a mussel farm back there,” Gilpin said. “People don’t sail there. That’s fine. I mean, we eat mussels, we like mussels a lot. I just don’t think this is a good spot.” Gilpin said because of the way sailboats zig-zag across the water to move with the wind, it’s difficult to get into Chandler Cove without going between the two floats. She said she is concerned because the floats, which have headlight reflectors on them, are difficult to see in fog. “In broad daylight, you can see them. They have driveway reflectors on them. But boats don’t have headlights,” Gilpin said. “They’re totally invisible in the fog.” Stocks said the company has gone above and beyond the statutory requirements, installing two flashing lights on the floats and reflectors on six-foot bright orange poles. The floats are also made of steel, which means they show up on radar. White buoys mark the corners of where the floats can be located, Stocks said, which is a requirement of the permitting process. Despite the markings, a reporter last week saw a sailboat, using a propeller instead of sails, maneuver between the two floats and through the white buoys on a sunny afternoon. Falmouth Harbormaster Alan Twombley sent out an email at the end of June to warn all boaters of the floats “located in a historically well traveled route used by those leaving our anchorage and traveling to Long Island, Chebeague Island and points beyond.” The email included GPS coordinates 43 42.470 -70 09.515 as the location of the floats. Twombley said the farm owners were under no obligation to inform the town of the new floats, because they are in Long Island’s jurisdiction. “It’s already been approved by the state and federal government. Who are we?” Twombley said. “All people have to do is recognize it’s there and change their course a bit.” Coast Guard representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

Pay-per-bag from page 3 let’s look at the numbers more carefully,” Gunning said. Regardless of public or council sentiment, the pay-per-bag system could not be implemented until a provision prohibiting user fees or other new taxes for waste disposal – and specifically payper-bag programs – is removed from the Town Charter. And councilors did not indicate support for a charter change. Town Engineer Al Presgraves said he

Gravel pit from page 3 extraction is now a non-permitted use in the two Rural Residential zones. But he noted that any Cumberland landowner could request such an operation in those zones through a contract zone, since

6:30 p.m. in the Freeport Community Center to discuss its next steps. In other business, after a lengthy and heated discussion, the council tabled financial policy updates until September. Councilors have discussed amendments to the town’s fund balance and investment policies since last December, held public hearings, two workshops and council meetings. but some members of the public and councilors said they still do not have all the information they need. Councilor Eric Pandora said he does not have a lot of confidence in the town’s legal opinion or with the ability of the

council to make policy changes without receiving answers to additional questions. In the meantime, councilors were advised to create a complete list of questions and concerns about the proposed financial policy amendments. Town Manager Dale Olmstead said the town auditor, the town attorney and the financial adviser will answer those questions in September.

gravel extraction is already a permitted use in one part of the town. “Anything that’s listed in the zoning ordinance is allowed anywhere in town by a contract zone,” Shane said. “If we didn’t have gravel operations listed anywhere, then it would be prohibited everywhere.” Shane doubted, though, that such a re-

quest would ever come before the town. And a contract zone would require some sort of public benefit in return for the Town Council approving such a request, he said. The town can also impose stricter guidelines and regulations on a project permitted through a contract zone.

Shane noted that the town’s own gravel extraction operation, which is in the Industrial Zone, is the only one in existence in Cumberland.

does not feel bad about the outcome of the meeting, but said he will work with the Solid Waste and Recycling Committee to find alternate ways to increase recycling. “There are some things we can do to keep recycling a priority in people’s minds,” he said. “We will not see a big jump that the pay-per-bag system would have provided, but we can work to increase the rate. We already have a good rate and trend and can work on activities to make that even better.” The Solid Waste and Recycling Committee will meet Wednesday, July 20, at
