After false start, Planning Board approves subdivision By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — Amid procedural confusion last week, the Planning Board approved construction of 38 single-family

homes and a 32-unit multi-family building on about 58 acres off Hillside Drive. The board voted twice to approve the McKearney Village

subdivision plan in a meeting on July 27 because members failed to understand what they were approving the first time. The first vote, 4-2, passed with

board members Ben Mather and Dale Cormier opposed and newcomer Jim MacLeod abstaining. The vote approved the plan with full connectivity and the exten-

sion of Sycamore Drive from the Applewood Farm neighborhood to McKearney Village.

By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — A monument to veterans from as far back as the American Revolution is now expected to be dedicated next Memorial Day, Town Manager Bill Shane said Monday. A golf tournament will be held later this month to help raise the remaining funds to complete the more than $60,000 monument. Shane said $36,000 has been raised to pay for three stones in Moss Side Cemetery on Main Street. A 4-by-8-foot center stone erected a year ago recognizes “all Cumberland residents who have served our country in times of war and peace.” Both sides of the two other India black granite stones and the back of the center stone will be inscribed with names of veterans. The town has collected more than 600 so far, and the stones have room for 1,400, Shane said. “Hopefully our kids in schools ... can visit that and see the history that Cumberland has had in just about every conflict, as well as peacetime,” he said. Shane said approximately $25,000 more is needed to pay for the names to be inscribed, brick pavers around the monument, lighting, granite benches and landscaping. The remaining funds might have to be partly subsidized by the town until the fundraising is complete, he

Could local teacher, now a software developer, have education’s next big thing? By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — In the same way the Maine Technology Initiative put the state on the map for classroom computers, education’s next big thing might just

be coming from Maine. At least, that’s what Academic Merit creator Ogden Morse is hoping. Last year, Morse piloted his three-part Web-based English

teaching assistance software in 25 Maine schools, with acclaimed results. The software provides online text-specific assessments for students to accompany traditional

Dig unlocks unexpected history of Freeport farm By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — Pettengill Farm is more than a place to hold an annual festival each fall. It is the site of several archaeological digs, the results of which are on display at the Freeport Historical Society at Harrington House on Main Street until Oct. 7 The farm is the location of the saltbox house built around 1800 that was home to Mildred Pettengill, who died at age 99 in 1981. The foundations of two other homes occupied in the mid-1800s by sisters Jane and Sophronia Rodick have been discovered, as well as the foundation of a home occupied by Abraham Grant in the 1770s. An archaeological field school using Grant’s Point as its base unearthed new discoveries at the Pettengill property as recently as last week. Christina White, executive director of the society, said the most recent dig was successful for unexpected reasons. A group of interested students – some with no archaeological experience – were

led by Freeport archaeologist Peter Morrison. White said the group found pottery, a key, and other remnants that provide evidence of an earlier structure. “The group found evidence of what could be a log house, which would explain why it had no foundation,” she said. “These archaeological artifacts are evidence that clearly delineate two sites.” One house foundation was discovered in the late 1990s by archaeologist Norm Buttrick. This new discovery indicates another structure could have been there decades earlier, White said. “We would like to add to our collection and show some of the items discovered during the field school in early October,” she said. “It would be fun to close the exhibit with the artifacts that were recently discovered.” While the dig from July 25-29 was part of the society’s summer-long program, “Diggin’ History: Piecing Together Pettengill Farm’s Past,” the public will still be able to participate in guided tours of the dig sites at Pettengill.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/96737

White said the tours, which start at Harrington House, will be held at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6; Sunday, Aug. 7; Thursday, Aug. 11, and Saturday, Aug. 13. The guide will discuss life on the farm based on historical and environmental evidence, including the results of multiple archaeological excavations on site. The 10 a.m. tour will take participants to the various dig sites, including the Grant’s Point site, and will last about two hours. The 1 p.m. tour will not include all the dig sites. “These tours will give an overview of the evolution of the land, who owned it, who lived here and how the land was divided throughout the years,” White said. The tours are $10 for adults and $5 for members. Participants are asked to dress accordingly for a hike through open fields and on rugged trails through the woods.

12 graduate from pilot summer program at Field Academy By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — Nyrobi Tyson, a 16-yearold from Asheville, N.C., spent the last five weeks traveling New England with 11 other students in the inaugural class of the Field Academy. Tyson participated in the Away but Home program and studied what home and community means to people living throughout New England. The students took that information and explored what home means to them and how they fit into their own communities. “We focused on what community and citizenship means,” Tyson said. “And our role as a community member.” Tyson was also a member of Coastal Studies for Girls, a 16-week program designed for sophomore girls focusing on leadership and science. “The Field Academy is similar to CSG, but different,” she said. “The structure and core values are different. We traveled a lot, there were boys involved, and we focused on community and citizenship. They are both intense programs that pushed my limits.” Co-founders Jen Lazar, Claire Hirschmann and Heather Foran worked together to create a school that will soon become a two-year residential high school for 40 juniors and seniors. Their mission is to educate the students to be exceptional individuals, to forge communities that inspire citizenship, and to know the world and its systems as their school. The school will use a sustainable farm in greater Portland as a campus and home

Teens from around North America graduated from the Field Academy’s five-week summer program last week. The 12 students are the school’s founding class and will help modify the program as it develops into a twoyear high school for juniors and seniors.

base, they said, and the students will travel the United States to learn about its history, people and environment. Hirschmann said the school provides students who are not stimulated by traditional classroom learning an opportunity to excel. At the graduation ceremony on July 28 at the Freeport Community Library, she told parents, grandparents, friends and supporters that the Field Academy is a school that connects living and learning. “We wanted to create a place where the students are learning about what they are Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/96481

The program is unique in that the students are able to offer feedback about what they want their education to look like, Foran said. “In a classroom, students are often given information and they don’t know what to do with it,” she said. “This school is unique in

Blue Angels to return for Brunswick’s 1st civilian air show

By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — The U.S. Navy may be gone, but the Blue Angels and other airborne acrobats are coming back for Brunswick Landing’s first civilian air show Aug. 26-28. “It’s the same air show people have come to know and love,” said Marty McMahon, aviation services manager for the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, which oversees economic development at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station. But there is one key difference: admission to this year’s Great State of Maine Air Show won’t be free. In the past, the Navy sponsored the show, which was considered an open house and promotional event for the military. But now, MRRA is footing the bill and asking attendees to buy tickets. Admission to the Saturday and Sunday sessions is $15 in advance or $20 at the gate for adults, and $10 in advance/$15 at the gate for children 12 and under and seniors. Friday night tickets are $5 less expensive. McMahon said he surveyed every air show in the country with a military jet display to get a sense of ticket prices, and set Brunswick’s prices well below average. “We really tried our hardest to keep our ticket prices just as low as possible,” he said. “We want to keep it as a family event and make sure that families can afford to come.” McMahon also promised there will be reasonably priced food and drinks. “We probably took a hit on our overall revenue, but in order to keep it a family event and keep prices down, we wanted a lower cost to the consumer concessionaire,” he explained. Other than the ticket price, the Friday night events are also different than in years past. On Friday, the Army’s Golden Knights

News briefs Lightning strikes in Falmouth

Circus Smirkus in Freeport next week

FALMOUTH — The Fire Department and emergency medical services responded to four reports of lightning strikes during a thunderstorm on Tuesday, Aug. 2. No injuries were reported. The first call at 1:36 p.m. was for a fire alarm at Foreside Community Church, 340 Foreside Road. That was followed by a fire alarm on Woodlands Drive and a report of sparks coming from wall outlets at the Public Works building on Woods Road. There was no damage found at any of the locations. The final call was from a Cedarwood Drive home, where residents reported a power loss and a smoking outlet in the garage. The Fire Department discovered a wire for an invisible dog fence had carried current from a lightning strike in the yard to the garage, where it shorted the power supply and the outlet.

Bath business bakes charity into cupcakes By Alex Lear BATH — A pair of business owners are proving that besides being tasty, cupcakes can aid good causes, too. Thorne Conley and Jane Conover operate C is for Cupcake, a bakery and mobile vendor that operates out of Conley’s Oak Street home. Their delectable treats go toward satisfying sweet tooths and bolstering charitable causes throughout the state. Last Friday, a table at Conley’s house was covered with little boxes, each containing one cupcake with a pink breast cancer ribbon made of edible fondant. The women were preparing the treats to bring to last week’s Tri for a Cure,

Do You Know That Many Orthopedic Injuries Can Be Treated Conservatively Without Surgery?

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/96637

a fundraiser in South Portland for the Maine Cancer Foundation. “We’re donating these to the 85 survivors who are in the race,” Conley said. Other cupcakes were to be sold at the event. For every dozen cupcakes the women sell regularly, they donate the proceeds to charity. They do most of their business around Portland, but are trying to spread the word about what they do closer to their base of operations. The business offers free delivery to non-profit organizations within a 50-mile radius of Bath. Conover and Conley started making cupcakes together in 2008, following the

closing of a clothing store where they had both worked. “We just had so much fun over the years working together,” Conover said. They initially made their cupcakes to donate to homeless shelters and soup kitchens, but interest in their products spurred them to start selling. Although cupcakes comprise the bulk of their talent, they also turn out an occasional miniature wedding cake. The women have donated cupcakes to a Maine Women’s Fund luncheon (700, to be exact) and the Maine Alzheimer’s Association, as well as to Hospice of Southern Maine. Birthday and graduation parties and weddings are among the events where they sell their products. They charge $15 for a dozen mini cupcakes, and $30 a dozen for the standard size. Conley and Conover fondly remembered a time they brought 48 cupcakes continued page 34

I believe we are overextended and on an unsustainable course. We have to make big cuts, but thoughtfully and with an eye toward avoiding large, unanticipated transaction costs. To that end, the military base closure commission may be a good model for a mechanism. Congress sets the general dollar goal and delegates the job of making specific, difficult cuts to a panel that is more insulated from political pressure. We have to start in the right direction and stay the course. Agree to make $.5 trillion of cuts in government spending. That’s less that the $4 trillion the credit rating agencies are seeking. The cuts will be difficult and painful. To get through them, we will need leadership and a willingness to work together and share the burden. We should try to make something positive out of it. We have just been through a binge of bling. It might not be bad to take the opportunity that the crisis offers to make some changes. As individuals, we could be less wasteful, less focused on material things, con-

serve our resources, get more involved in our community, and help our neighbors. Corporate America could engage in some self-discipline and moderate the wide disparity in its compensation structure. It could agree to some reasonable financial regulation. It could move away from disposable, homogenized culture. In the process of downsizing, government could revise the tax code so that it is simple and progressive, reform our immigration system so that there are two routes to legal status, merit and humanitarian. It could revitalize our cities, discourage urban sprawl and malls in favor of more sensible forms of urban planning. It could change the incentives on our transportation sector to favor the most efficient mode for each transportation need. It could institute two years of mandatory, universal public service after high school. With leadership and a willingness to cooperate and work together, we can weather this crisis and emerge renewed and improved.

It’s getting harder to be heard in Harpswell We ask a lot of our local elected officials. We expect them to be know-it-alls on topics ranging from general assistance to residential zoning. We ask them to pinch pennies in multi-million-dollar budgets. They put in long hours, and usually don’t get paid much, if at all. And on Election Day, we’ll send them packing without as much as a thank you. But one of the least onerous things we ask of them is that they listen to us. Hear us out. Allow us to say what’s on our minds and get things off our chests. Besides placing topics on their agendas for full discussion, town councils and boards of selectmen usually provide public comment periods where residents can say what they want about any town issue, within limits of time, decency and respect for others; inappropriate, offensive, interruptive, or repetitive comments are usually off limits. When they do allow comments, councilors and selectmen don’t have to respond, or even pay attention (although it obviously serves us all if they do). All they have to do is sit there, wait out the few minutes each member of the public is typically allotted, and then move on to their regularly scheduled business. But that’s not the case recently in Harpswell, where the simple act of listening and showing respect for the public was too much for two of the town’s three selectmen. Board of Selectmen Chairwoman Elinor Multer and Selectman Alison S. Hawkes have apparently had enough of resident Robert McIntyre’s rants about School Administrative District 75. But instead of sitting there for a few minutes during their meetings and listening to him, or just ignoring his comments, they’ve now stopped him from speaking by invoking a questionable policy that allows the board to ban discussion of any topic the selectmen decide is too “controversial.” Not too long. Not offensive. Not inappropriate. But too “controversial.” “We have had, in my view, a more than adequate debate,” Multer said. Really? In a town where people have dickered for years in a questionable dispute about the border with Brunswick, Harpswell’s participation in SAD 75, with its tangible impact on finances and education, is too “controversial” to discuss? In our view, Multer is wrong. The ban she and Hawkes pushed through, over the dis-

sent of Selectman James S. Henderson, unfairly targets McIntyre and looks like a blatant attempt to silence an opposing viewpoint. The policy amendment that Multer and Hawkes invoked was introduced only a year ago – by Multer, when a handful of town residents who opposed closing West Harpswell School, including McIntyre, kept raising the issue at board meetings. Hawkes and Multer both opposed the recent, unsuccessful referendum that would have advanced the process of withdrawal from the school district, while McIntyre supported it. But the margin of victory was narrow. Whether there is yet another referendum on SAD 75 will be decided by the town’s registered voters. The discussion shouldn’t be muted by a pair of selectmen who are tired of hearing an opposing viewpoint, and who in the process are sending a chilling message to anyone who may want to bring something “controversial” to the board’s attention. Zachary Heiden, legal director of the Maine Civil Liber-

ties Union, said he found it troubling that “they would give themselves the power to ban controversial speech without defining what controversial means.” “This vague standard that the council is applying is without any real guidance, and the fact that the power to ban is content-based, those are all First Amendment red flags,” Heiden told The Forecaster’s Emily Guerin. Henderson, the dissenting selectman, got it right when he told Guerin a “small amount of irritation ... is definitely worth absorbing, as compared to appearing to be cutting off discussion of issues you don’t want to hear about.” Selectmen can ultimately dictate the terms of their own business meetings, including whether to allow public comment and to what extent. But once they decide they will listen to the public, and if they extend that courtesy to everyone else, it isn’t unreasonable to expect them to listen to people who disagree with them, too.

Doing the rest-area aerobics Summer means road trips. And, unavoidably, rest areas. I have driven all over the Northeast, and after having sampled a goodly number of rest-area restrooms, what I want to know is this: When did someone deNo Sugar cide that we would be better served if our hygiene were automated? Was it because not enough people were flushing the toilets at the Woodrow Wilson rest area on the New Jersey Turnpike? Were there naughty people in Vermont, vengefully turning on both the cold and hot faucets, and then bolting back to their Priuses? Recently, I had the pleasure of once again experiSandi Amorello encing the hellishly tedious round-trip drive to Connecticut, to meet up with my lovely mother, Louise, and perform the infamous “child exchange.” She had been entertaining Charles, and I needed to retrieve him, while simultaneously gifting her with his older sister, Ophelia. It was a hot day, and Ophelia and I kicked off our 11hour drive with a stop for iced coffee. Clearly not the smartest beverage choice, because by the onset of hour No. 3, we were making our second pit stop. After using the facilities, Ophelia and I met in front of a bank of white porcelain sinks. When she found me, I was already in the throes of my usual automated sink dance, waving my arms in a style reminiscent of Keith Lockhart as he conducts the Boston Pops. Or someone who had flunked out of mime school. As I stood there, trying unsuccessfully to make water spew from the faucet in front of me, and then going sink to sink, in a desperate attempt to get the soap

suds off of my hands, Ophelia walked over to me, and with a look of utter disdain, said dryly, “Umm. Mom. Do you need some help with that?” Of course, just as my charmingly sarcastic daughter uttered those words, water came shooting out of the faucet like a geyser at Yosemite. Only to predictably and abruptly stop once again, forcing me to repeat the hand-waiving process until I had extracted a quantity of water sufficient to wash off all of the foamy soap. And don’t even get me started on the automatic toilets. Now, I know there is usually a button that you can push to flush the toilet manually, if the automated flushing feature fails. But much like the button that the president can push to launch a nuclear missile, this button obviously represents utter defeat, and should only be used in case of extreme emergency. It’s often red, to induce intimidation. So you’ve just used the toilet. Two things will generally transpire at this point: a) the toilet will automatically flush before you’ve had the chance to reach a full standing position, causing you to either be sucked back down by its gravitational pull and/or leaving your underpants soggy from the spray created by the force of the water as it violently departs the bowl, or b) you will stand up, get dressed, fix your hair, send a text message to a friend, compose a poem, and the toilet will still not have flushed. You will then do something resembling an aerobics routine, all in a sad attempt to convince your friend, the automated toilet, that it’s time to cooperate. Good luck with that. Assuming you’ve emerged victorious from the toilet situation, you must next navigate the sinks and towel dispensers. Or, worse yet, the driers. It’s the same old same old. More wild hand gesticulations, more orchestra conducting. If you’re lucky, you’ll end up with enough paper towels to dry adult-sized hands. Or you’ll get the air to blow – and hopefully not from a machine that dispenses it at a force equal to that of a rocket booster. I know many of these devices are designed to save our natural resources and perhaps, save us from ourselves, but really, I was much happier when I had to push the toilet lever with my foot, to make it flush in a sanitary fashion. My thighs got a good workout. And at least my underwear stayed dry. As usual, automated isn’t always better.

Beem’s analysis is on target I should have written this letter years ago. Edgar Allen Beem rocks. Last week’s column on the future Republican presidential candidate, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, was another in a long line of outstanding, incisive works. I like The Forecaster, and mean no insult to it by saying this, but a writer of Beem’s caliber deserves a far broader forum. Knowing that his column is inside the paper each week, I make sure to pick up The Forecaster. Thank you, Mr. Beem. Steve McKelvey Scarborough

State rep. urges use of ‘Circuit Breaker’ Applications for refunds of up to $1,600 are available for property taxes or rent paid in 2010. The state refund program, called “Circuit Breaker,” provides middle and low-income Maine residents with a partial refund of local property taxes and/or rent paid on their primary residence. This program is a great way to get some tax relief to Maine property owners and renters who need it most, but many people who qualify for the circuit breaker don’t know about it or don’t apply. In these tough times I encourage anyone who thinks they might qualify to call Maine Revenue Services and ask for an application. To qualify, an applicant’s 2010 adjusted household income must be $64,950 or less ($86,600 for those with spouse or dependents). In addition, an applicant’s 2010 property tax must have been more than 4 percent (or rent more than 20 percent) of their 2010 household income. Low-income seniors do not need to meet this requirement.

The virtue of eating local When it comes to eating, I’m afraid I’m an indiscriminate omnivore. I’m the kind of guy who can’t tell the difference between Two Buck Chuck and Chateau Mouton Rothschild and doesn’t care. The Universal I scoff down hot dogs and burgers and fries. I’m an out and out haute cuisine philistine. Back in the 1970s, I was at a dinner party with some folks of far more culinary sophistication, so when the table talk turned to favorite meals, I assumed I would embarrass myself by confessing that my idea of a feast was (and is) lobster, steamed Edgar Allen Beem clams, corn on the cob, and blueberry pie. When my host, a wine snob and gourmet cook, pronounced his approval of my palate, it was the first time I became aware of the virtue that attaches to eating simple and local. Now, of course, eating local is all the rage. As a result, farmers markets, organic farms, backyard gardens, community gardens, and CSAs are sprouting up all over the landscape. Community-supported agriculture is a model of agricultural sustainability that provides financial support for small local farms and fresh produce for the families that support them. It’s one of the best ideas going: consumers investing in farms, sharing both the risks and the rewards. This year, Carolyn purchased a three-quarter share in the summer harvest of Laughingstock Farm in Freeport. For $450, we get vegetables for 22 weeks. Usually she picks them up at the end of the week after work, but with Carolyn on vacation I took a trip out to Laughingstock Farm myself last week. I took our share in a big bag of Swiss chard, another of kale, an armful of cucumbers and a few summer squash. There were also local dairy products and organic meats I could have purchased separately. With all three girls out of the house, Carolyn and I haven’t been able to eat all the CSA produce on a few occasions, but last week I took the bounty up to the

lake, where we had a veritable veggie feast with her sister and brother-in-law. The best restaurants in Maine, from Primo in Rockland to Fore Street in Portland, place a premium on using local foods, making a point of identifying where ingredients were grown or raised. At one of our favorite local eateries, Broad Arrow Tavern at the Harraseeket Inn in Freeport, the salad you don’t eat is used as compost to grow the salads of the future. Maine’s food culture just seems to get better all the time. We buy great ales from microbreweries such as Geary’s and Gritty’s, artisanal breads from Rosemont Bakery, Standard Bakery, and When Pigs Fly, wonderful chesses from Pineland Farms and Sunset Acre Farm. I confess that back in the 1960s I had a somewhat jaundiced view of the back-to-the-land movement as naive, romantic and Utopian. No more. As gas prices drive the price of food ever higher, such that you now need a home equity loan to buy a steak at Hannaford or Shaw’s, locally grown, organic foods, once priced out of the reach of some, are becoming increasingly attractive and affordable. Fresh, natural and not transported to Maine from all over the globe, local foods are better tasting, better for you, and better for Mother Earth. Every time I despair of America’s economic collapse and what it may mean for my daughters, I realize that, ultimately, while they may not have more than their parents (the old American Dream paradigm), they may have a simpler and better life (the new American Dream paradigm). And being artists and environmentalists, they already sense this, valuing the local in ways our generation did not. Small local farms, family gardens, locally owned, independent businesses. If the 21st century turns out to look more like the 19th than the 20th, it may well be a good thing. I have seen the future and it resides in the past. Eat well, my friends. Eat local.

Yarmouth 11-12 all-stars win state crown

Courtesy of Kendall Harnett

Grant Tobias gets a fist bump from his teammates during Yarmouth’s run to the 11-12 year-old Little League state title last week in Portland. Yarmouth defeated York (2-1), Old Town (10-0) and York again (6-3, in an eight-inning marathon) to advance to the Eastern regionals in Bristol, Conn. That tournament starts Friday (Yarmouth meets Goffstown, N.H.). If Yarmouth manages to win that tournament, next up would be one of the most storied events in sports, the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn.

The 2011 11-12 year-old Little League state champions from the town of Yarmouth: Front row (left to right): Chris Romano, C.J. Crawley, Bobby Murray, Joe Defusco, Chris Amoroso, John Thoma, Jack Synder. Back row: Conor O’Donnell, Caleb Gray, Noah Pellerin, Grant Tobias, Luke Klenda.

A baseball top 10 with a musical twist By Bryan O’Connor I spend a somewhat embarrassing amount of time obsessing about who the best active baseball players are. Statistics can tell us who’s having the best season or who has brought the most value to his teams throughout his career, but the idea of “best right now” is a little more nebulous. Is Jose Reyes better than Hanley Ramirez now, or is he just having a better season? How long does Clayton Kershaw have to be as great as he’s been this year before we consider him among the game’s elite pitchers? This ties in well with another of my obsessions: music. It’s downright impossible to objectively rank the talents and accomplishments of musicians, but as many hours as I’ve spent dreaming up baseball player rankings, I’ve spent much more time ranking my favorite albums, songs, and artists. I’m not sure whether the upcoming exercise is an effort to add objectivity to a debate about great art or an attempt to celebrate the subjectivity of a debate about great athletes, but I couldn’t help but combine these two passions. I made lists of the 10 best active baseball players and 10 of my favorite active bands and matched each player to a band based on some abstract similarity. Depending on your tastes,

this list is either enhanced or marred by subjectivity. You may think Cole Hamels should have made the baseball list or My Morning Jacket should have made the music list, and I’d love to hear your opinions, but at the moment, I’m more concerned with how they match up. If you’re looking for Kanye West or Bon Iver (or Lady Gaga), keep in mind that this is a list of bands, not solo artists. Also, neither list is ranked here; they’re just the ten best in some order. Without further ado:

Albert Pujols = Radiohead For most of a decade, Pujols has been the best player in baseball, winning three MVP awards and probably deserving five or six. He’s aging and we don’t know whether his mediocre 2011 is a sign of his decline or just an anomaly. Radiohead has been the best band in the world for over a decade, releasing possibly the best album in three different years, and records worthy of best album discussion five or six times. We don’t know what to expect of the player or the band going forward, but even if they’re done as elite performers, they’re both firmly established among the best ever at what they do.

Adrian Gonzalez = Arcade Fire Gonzalez has been a great player since 2006 and one of

the best in the world since 2009, but because he played half his games in the vast pastures of Petco Park, only those who were paying attention knew how good he was. Arcade Fire put out perhaps the best album of the decade, “Funeral,” in 2004, but because they come from Canada and Kanye West never produced a single for them, only those who were paying attention knew how good they were. In 2010, Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” won the Album of the Year Grammy and Gonzalez was traded to the friendly confines of Fenway Park. And there were no more secrets.

Troy Tulowitzki = The Decemberists Tulowitzki was a great player in 2007 and 2009, but suffered injuries in 2008 and early 2010 that kept him off the field. He came back last summer and crushed the ball for two months, continuing that hot streak into spring of 2011, only to fall back to earth slightly this summer. When he’s hot, Tulowitzki is the best player in baseball. When he’s hurt, those of us not on Mountain Time tend to forget he exists. Similarly, the Decemberists are capable of making some of the best music there is. “Picaresque” and “The Crane Wife” were stunning displays

It’s almost that time

of unabashed pretention. “The Hazards of Love” must have been the result of an ACL tear or a broken wrist, but this year’s “The King is Dead” reestablished the Decemberists as a must-hear band.

Evan Longoria = The Shins Evan Longoria was a hyped uberprospect long before he donned a glove for the Rays. Since he cracked the major league roster, he’s done nothing but deliver, making a strong case as the American League’s best player.

The Shins burst on the scene with a flourish, announcing their place when Garden State‛s Andrew Largeman declared that they’ll “change your life.” They’ve done nothing but deliver since, each of their three studio albums a neopsychedelic triumph.

Robinson Cano = Modest Mouse

Everyone knows Robinson Cano is a great player. He hits for average, hits for power, and has some speed.

New era for Portland Pirates By Ken Levinsky Area interest in professional ice hockey is at a peak. The Boston Bruins’ Stanley Cup championship run was very closely followed and celebrated. With the uncertainty caused by the current NBA work stoppage, the start of the NHL season will be in the spotlight. Locally, the Portland Pirates have also aroused interest with their new affiliation with the Phoenix Coyotes.

A bit of history The Cumberland County Civic Center opened in 1977 and the Maine Mariners ruled the Civic Center ice, winning Calder Cup championships in their first two seasons. They were affiliated with the Philadelphia Flyers for the first six years and then with the New Jersey Devils. In their first season with the Devils,

1983-84, the Mariners won their third Calder Cup. The Devils moved the team to Utica after four years, but the Boston Bruins filled the void with an AHL expansion team for the 1987-88 season. After the 1991-92 season, the Mariners left Portland to become the Providence Bruins. There was no hockey in Portland during the 1992 -93 season. The Pirates arrived in Portland in time for the 1993-94 season. The transplanted Baltimore Skipjacks were the Washington Capitals’ affiliate and won the Calder Cup in that first season. Two years later, the Pirates made it back to the Calder Cup finals, losing 2-1 in Game 7. It would be another decade before the Pirates would next advance beyond the second round. When the 1998-99 season rolled around, the Capitals shared their affiliation with the Chicago Blackhawks.

After the 2004- 2005 season, the Capitals switched their affiliation to Hershey, Penn., and the Pirates welcomed the Anaheim Ducks. In the Ducks’ inaugural season (2005- 2006), the Pirates finished at the top of their division for the first time with a team record 114 points. They then advanced to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in 10 years. In the Duck’s third season (2007- 2008) the Pirates again made it to the Eastern Conference finals. After that season, the Ducks decided to move their affiliation to Des Moines, Iowa and the Buffalo Sabres became the Pirates’ NHL affiliate for the 2008- 2009 season. With Buffalo, the Pirates had strong regular seasons finishing with 101 and 102 points the past two years, their first ever back-toback 100-point seasons. Although they always made the playoffs as the Buffalo affiliate (winning their second division title in 2010-11), they got only as far as the second round this past season. Like the Ducks, the Sabres partnership with the Pirates lasted three years and they have relocated to nearby Rochester, N.Y for the coming season.

New deal In late June, the Pirates announced an agreement with the Phoenix Coyotes. They have retained Coach Ray Edwards, who has been the team’s skipper for the past two seasons. The parent Coyotes made the NHL playoffs last season, for a total of seven times in their 15 years since relocating from Winnipeg. The American Hockey League will have a new division alignment for the 2011-2012 season. Each of the two 15team conferences will now have three divisions (as in the NHL), instead of two. The division winners will receive the top three seeds in the conference playoffs with the other five slots going to the remaining teams with the most points. The first round will be a best-of-five series, all other rounds will be best-ofseven. Teams will be re-ordered after the first round so that the highest-remaining seed plays the lowest-remaining seed. The Pirates will remain in the Atlantic

Division with Manchester (Los Angeles Kings), Worcester (San Jose Sharks), Providence (Boston) and the new St. John’s Newfoundland team (Vancouver Canucks). The new Pirates project to be a playoff contender. Using last year’s points, with the new conference alignment, the Pirates would finish third in the division and ninth in the conference, just one point out of the postseason. If they maintain their upward trend of the past three seasons, playoff contention is likely. Last year in San Antonio, the Coyotes’ AHL team was seventh in attendance with an average of 6,411 per game, while the Pirates were 18th with an average of 4,655 (San Antonio’s arena has nearly twice the capacity of the Cumberland County Civic Center). Area hockey fans expressed their views on the changes. Some noted that it would be easier to identify with a more proximate NHL team. If, for example, the New York Rangers or Islanders or New Jersey Devils were the affiliate, one could travel there more easily to watch former Pirates play at the top level. Mike Clenott of Portland knows that the community has a good history of welcoming new teams to town. “It won’t be the first time a Pacific Division team has affiliated with the Pirates,” he pointed out. “The Anaheim Ducks were well liked.” Festus Day of Portland feels Pirates hockey is enjoyable no matter what their NHL affiliation. “Unless it’s the (Boston) Bruins, it’s all the same,” Day said. “I go to the games for fun. The change in players isn’t going to impact the entertainment.” Brent Marcott, the Pirates newly appointed Director of Communications said fans will enjoy “a whole new wave of great talent” on the ice. Off the ice, Marcott and his colleagues are looking forward to unveiling new initiatives to enhance the fan experience. It all begins on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m., when the Pirates play their home opener.

Vampire Weekend is one of my favorite bands. Both are young and should be in the spotlight for years. And Votto has kind of vampirey eyebrows.

Another thing you may not know is the same way that Halladay continues that Belle and Sebastian has been around to make National League hitters look since 1996, just as long as Modest as foolish as he made American League Mouse, has put out seven studio albums, hitters look during the Blue Jays portion as has Modest Mouse, and has been of his career. consistently better than Modest Mouse.

Tim Lincecum = Of Montreal Both freaks. Both geniuses. And a few more player-band comparisons beyond the top 20:

Derek Jeter = U2 Because they both earned their place among the all-time greats, but are both wildly overrated and obscenely overpaid in their twilight years based on past accomplishments.

Ryan Howard = Dave Matthews Band Because fans tend to obsess so much over a single skill (home runs; blending of unique instruments in rock ballads), that we neglect their significant short-

comings (strikeouts, defense, mostly unlistenable albums since “Under the Table and Dreaming”) and pay way too much to watch them play.

John Lackey = Black Eyed Peas

Because both were once very good, then got very rich, then got very, very bad.

Yuniesky Betancourt = Train

Because both are so awful I don’t know why so many teams/radio stations keep playing them. For a complete rundown of the 20 best baseball players and bands and a few more bonus comparisons, visit http://replacementlevel.wordpress. com/2011/07/27/great-baseball-playersand-great-bands/

Festival turns 18 By Scott Andrews During the summer months, the center of gravity of Maine’s music and theater moves out of Portland and disperses along the seacoast and far into the interior. One especially notable exception to that seasonal exodus is the Portland Chamber Music Festival, which starts its four-concert main series on Thursday, Aug. 11. There have been some big changes in PCMF management, but Artistic Director Jenny Elowitch remains committed to top-notch performances by world-class musicians, and she continues her festival’s longstanding connections to contemporary classical music. Deertrees Theatre Festival has undergone big changes too, but its basic format remains constant: four shows over four weekends. Deertrees Theatre Festival starts this weekend and runs through the end of the month. One Longfellow Square has a pair of programs of special interest to followers of southern Maine’s vibrant songwriting community on Aug. 5 and 10.

Portland Chamber Music Festival Seventeen seasons of the Portland Chamber Music Festival have flowed under the metaphorical bridge, but “energy” and “vitality” are still the catchwords that violinist Elowitch uses – and effuses – when talking about her event. There have been big changes in the festival’s management and direction, but Elowitch’s commitment to interesting, audience-pleasing programming remains constant. So does PCMF’s commitment to engaging new music; this year’s 21stcentury offerings include a jazz-inspired work by one of America’s top composers plus a light-hearted piece inspired by a cat. I’ve been covering PCMF since 1994 – months before its public inaugural – and have been an avid attendee since the first concert. This week, I’ll review the big picture plus some details of the Aug. 11 concert. Then next week I’ll focus on the remaining three programs.

Bedford St. Visit www.pcmf.org for details. There is also a free “family” concert at 11 a.m. on Aug. 14, a collaboration between PCMF, Peekaboo Children’s Center, The Telling Room and the Southern Maine Writing Project.

The Portland Chamber Music Festival returns to the Abromson Community Education Center on the University of Southern Maine Portland campus for its 18th season on Aug. 11.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/96604

For 2011, the festival’s 18th season, Elowitch will totally assume the role of artistic director. She founded the festival with her longtime friend, New York pianist Dena Levine, and the two co-helmed it through 2010. Levine decided to withdraw as co-director last fall, but the parting was amicable and she’ll remain one of PCMF’s featured artists, playing in two concerts this summer. Don’t expect too many changes. PCMF was a winner from the start and Elowitch won’t mess with success. “Fundamentally, Dena and I had a very similar worldview of music,” Elowitch said. “I might have a little more of a bent toward contemporary music than she does, but there’s no way that I’m going to abandon the traditional repertoire that our audiences have come to expect and turn this into a contemporary music festival.” The overall format won’t change either. There are four main evening concerts: Aug. 11, 13, 18 and 20. The roster of performers typically numbers about 20. Most of these

are globetrotting American musicians who have known Elowitch and Levine since their conservatory days; several have firstchair positions in major U.S. orchestras. The Aug. 11 concert exemplifies PCMF’s tried-and-true formula, with selections spanning the 18th through 20th centuries. It opens with Jean-Marie Leclair’s Baroque duo for two violins, then segues into Ralph Vaughn William’s moving, but seldom-performed “On Wenlock Edge,” a major 20th-century vocal masterpiece. The featured singer will be John McVeigh, an internationally renowned opera tenor who lives in Portland, but seldom performs in Maine. The concert concludes with Felix Mendelssohn’s celebrated String Octet. Musicologists have long noted the composer’s exceptional ability to give all eight instrumentalists a distinct voice in the overall piece, thus retaining its intended character as chamber music and not sounding like an undersized orchestra. PCMF mainstage evening concerts are scheduled for 8 p.m. at the Abromson Community Education Center on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus at 88

Deertrees Theatre, the wonderfully rustic arts center in the Lake Region, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this summer. Built by a New York opera activist in 1936, the rose hemlock building has undergone many changes over the decades, including a sad period of abandonment and a mid-1980s rescue and rehabilitation into today’s vibrant magnet for the performing arts. The annual Deertrees Theatre Festival, which has run for more than a decade, will be substantially changed for 2011, emphasizing lighthearted musical entertainment versus the heavier dramatic and literary fare featured in prior years. A pair of jukebox musicals dominate the first two weekends, while the final two weekends will feature works written and produced by Boston actress-director-playwright-educator Gail Phaneuf. Halfway through the festival, Deertrees will hold a 75th birthday party on Aug. 15. Let’s take a quick look at this weekend’s show. “The Bikinis,” described as a musical beach party, plays Aug. 4-7. It’s a jukebox show that revolves around the reunion of a 1960s-era girl group played by four topnotch professional actresses. Featured songs include “Under the Boardwalk,” “It’s Raining Men,” “When Will I Be Loved” and “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.” Deertrees is on Deertrees Road, a mile out of Harrison Village. Call 583-6747 or visit www.deetreestheater.org.

Songwriters at One Longfellow Square Southern Maine boasts a legion of singersongwriters, and two of the pillars of that vibrant community will be featured in a pair of programs at One Longfellow Square on Aug. 5 and 10. On the first date, Delilah Poupore and Friends will be giving a free concert at 6 p.m. as part of the First Friday Art Walks. After relocating from California four years ago, Poupore has made an impact both as a singer-songwriter herself, plus she’s broadened her reach by teaching songwriting classes for several adult education programs and organizing showcases for her students. I’ve heard Poupore and her circle of songwriting friends several times and find them always interesting. On Aug. 10, the Maine Songwriters Association launches its Second Wednesday showcase at 7 p.m. With more than a thousand members statewide, MSA has been on the scene for more than a decade supporting Maine’s unique songwriting community and promoting the art of song craft. This monthly showcase will provide some of Maine’s best songwriters an ideal venue for sharing their talent with their fans. The showcase consists of eight individual performances of just 20 minutes each, providing the audience with a tasty sampling of each musician’s best material. One Longfellow Square, the western anchor of Portland’s downtown arts district, is located at the corner of Congress and State steets. Call 761-1757 or visit www. onelongfellowsquare.com.

parachute team will skydive against a backdrop of fireworks. Other night performers include Julie Clark, who also flies among the fireworks, and Elton Wells’ Starjammer, which is equipped with LED lights, smoke and massive on-board loudspeakers. On Saturday and Sunday, gates open at 8 a.m. and the show begins at 10 a.m. with another jump by the Golden Knights. Over the course of the day, various military aircraft will take to the skies, as will stunt fliers like the Geico Skytypers, who etch messages in the sky with their contrails. The Navy’s Blue Angels, who fly and do stunts in tight formation just under the speed of sound, will headline the Saturday and Sunday shows. While many of the performers are the same as in years past, the events on the ground are different now that the former Navy base is a civilian airport. MRRA is hosting a Business Aviation Expo to showcase the Brunswick Executive Airport and aviation in Maine. In between performances, spectators will be able to check out a flight simulator and several parked military and civilian aircraft.

The graduation ceremony was a chance for the 12 students from around the U.S. and one Canadian province to share with their friends and families photos of their travels, stories of their experiences and what they learned about themselves and others. Over five weeks they worked on a farm in Vermont, hiked the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire, visited a Penobscot Indian Reservation in Maine, gave a presentation at Tufts University in Boston, spent a day on a lobster boat and on an island community in Casco Bay. Amalia Leamon of Williamstown, Mass., one of three triplets to participate in the Away but Home program, said she was very nervous in the beginning, but the experience opened her eyes to herself and her community. “I learned about my strengths and learned how to strengthen myself within my community,” she said. Her sister Sophie, said she discovered she could challenge herself, set goals for herself, meet those expectations and thrive. She said she learned that she craves adventure and wants to jump into life “feet first.” “I see communities in different ways now,” she said. “I want to spread the value of the self and communities and make the world better.” The Field Academy co-founders said they are more than pleased with the outcome of the pilot program. “To me, the most powerful part is that the nebulous idea we envisioned – in all its pieces, connections and inspiration – is a reality,” Hirschmann said. “The school is a balance of between community and individual growth.” Lazar said the students learned so much by living with other teens from different parts of North America, each with their own perspective and different backgrounds. “This experience impacted the students and those they came in contact with,” she said. “We created something that extended beyond us and our group.” Between now and the fall of 2012 the three co-founders, teachers and supporters will work on capacity building, fundraising, program development and outreach, Lazar said.

from page 1 noted. “It would be great if we could get this whole thing paid for without tax dollars, and that’s the goal,” Shane said. Last year the monument was expected to cost $50,000, but additional names submitted for inclusion and the rising cost of granite caused the price tag to increase, Shane said. Slower-than-expected fundraising delayed the monument’s dedication from the original plan of Memorial Day this year. The golf tournament to be held Thursday, Aug. 25, will run from noon to 5 p.m. at the Val Halla Golf & Recreation Center on Val Halla Road. Recreation Director Brian Bickford can be reached at 829-2225 for more information. Shane said the final two stones can be installed before the inscriptions are made, and that the engravings can be done on site. The Cumberland Veterans Monument Committee, an ad hoc group appointed by the Town Council, will meet later this month to discuss whether it would be worthwhile from a fundraising standpoint

to erect the full monument first without the names, “encouraging people to help send money in so we can get the names engraved,” Shane said. The other stones may be up this fall. The format of the names – whether they should be listed by conflict, by branch of service, or in alphabetical order – must also be determined. Shane said another option is to group families together. “It’s a recognition monument versus a memorial monument,” he said, “because a lot of people are still alive that will be (listed).” People interested in making a donation can contact Shane or Executive Assistant Brenda Moore at 8292205. Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @learics.

This monument at Moss Side Cemetery in Cumberland is to be expanded and hold the names of veterans dating back to the American Revolution. Alex Lear / The Forecaster

Yarmouth from page 1 When Chairman Stacy Stevens realized the plan was approved with full connectivity, the board took a brief recess, held a private discussion, reconvened, voted to rescind its earlier vote and amended the plan. The amendment – to not connect and extend Sycamore Drive from the Applewood Farm neighborhood to McKearney Village – was approved 6-1, with Mather still opposed. The McKearney Village application was submitted to the Planning Board in January 2010. Some neighbors, citing density, traffic and safety concerns, and environmental issues as potential problems, have opposed it since the beginning. With the extension of Sycamore Drive, the plan promoted connectivity and traffic and pedestrian access throughout neighborhoods that are now cul-de-sacs or dead ends. But residents were concerned that connecting the road would increase the tendency for vehicles to cut through Harrison Middle School and Yarmouth High School to avoid traffic or more quickly access West Elm Street, Main Street and Portland Street. The Comprehensive Plan and Vanessa

Revolution from page 1 reading comprehension, vocabulary and short essays. “As a teacher, I’ll know before I walk in the door how my students did on that assignment,” Morse said. And that’s not a stretch for Morse to imagine. He was an English teacher at Falmouth High School for six years. He took a leave of absence last year to pursue what is becoming the talk of the English teaching and educational technology community. “I liked the program a great deal ... because it complemented what I was doing in class this year,” said English teacher Peter Vose, who used the software in his

August 4, 2011

Comment on this story at:

Farr, Yarmouth’s director of planning and development, support street connectivity as a way to reduce vehicle use, energy consumption and carbon emissions; diffuse traffic impact in one area; and allow police, fire and emergency rescue services more than a single point of access. A compromise was eventually reached to appease some of the neighbors who have opposed the proposal. The amendment approved on July 27 allows limited emergency vehicle and bicycle and pedestrian access between McKearney Village and Sycamore Drive via a 14-foot paved road. There will be a mechanical sliding gate with electronic keypad lock that can be accessed by emergency workers and public safety. William Conway, project manager for Sebego Technics in Westbrook, said he was comfortable with the alternative. But members of the public, while appreciative of the compromise, still expressed concerns. Suzanne Jones of Sycamore Drive commended the board for trying to balance the needs of the town, developers, property owners, and the public, but said the process has been flawed from the beginning of the application. “You continue to hear many concerns forwarded by citizens with regard to the density of this project, the impact on the environment, the safety of our citizens, the impact on neighborhoods in terms of

privacy and property values,” she said. “There have been many troubling and rather questionable procedural missteps revealed, whether on the surface or below the surface.” She said abutters have not been properly notified of meetings, public comment has been limited and town staff does not agree on the connection and density of the subdivision. “How can anything good come from so many procedural and content conflicts? A flawed process is likely to result in only one thing: litigation. Litigation is bad for everyone, certainly not in the best interest of the town,” Jones said. In a letter addressed to the town manager, town planner, superintendent of schools and the chairmen of the School Board and Town Council, resident Maryellen Thoma expressed concern that the high-density development will adversely impact the health and safety of elementary and middle school students who travel on Hillside to get to school. “The existing traffic and road problems on Hillside are well known by those of us who use this stretch of road. This proposed high density project compounds them,” she wrote. Town Engineer Dan Jellis said he expects final construction plans from

Falmouth classes. In addition to encouraging student comprehension, the software creates standard assessments, called Assessments 21, that are graded by Maine teachers in a double-blind environment. “This program gave me the option of submitting my students’ essays for scoring. I scored them as well, but it was great to have objective assessments of my students’ work,” Vose said. The assessments measure a variety of reading and writing skills, including critical thinking, organization and grammar, and provide teachers a place to improve their own assessment abilities by providing feedback on how the grades they give to student essays compare to the doubleblind assessments. In essence, it func-

tions as a teaching and assessment tool, and as a professional development tool. “It’s quietly revolutionary,” Morse said. “It changes the dynamic in profound ways.” And he’s not the only one who says so. Academic Merit won the prestigious CODiE award this year, given by the Software and Information Industry Association for the best student assessment solution. The small Maine company was up against of international education software developers like McGraw-Hill. Former Gov. Angus King, who pioneered Maine’s laptop computer initiative, recently told Morse that Academic Merit could be the next step in education technology. “He called the professional develop-

Cupcakes from page 6 to the Tedford Shelter in Brunswick. The building was locked, and three men sat outside the door. The women, who weren’t going to be able to come back, asked the men if they would mind taking charge of the snacks until the building was open. “And these men, (who were) down and out ... the way these men just lit up and smiled,” Conover said. She said she hopes the cupcakes did get delivered. “They must have,” she said, laughing. “Or they have gone into sugar shock.” For more information, email cisforcupcake7@gmail.com, or call Conley at 841-0237 and Conover at 837-3288.

ment piece the ‘special sauce,’” Morse said. Morse has been meeting regularly with state officials about a potential statewide trial of the software, and recently returned from a conference in Denver about developing classroom-based assessments that take place throughout the year, rather than the summary assessments that are used now. “We’re definitely headed in the right direction,” Morse said.
