Falmouth delegate responds to convention challenge

A beautiful morning to sail

By William Hall FALMOUTH — As the seating of 40 Maine delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention is contested by fellow state Republicans, one of the contested delegates, Falmouth resident John Logan Jones, said the challenge is “a purely political move, without precedent.” On July 28, prominent Maine Republicans Peter Cianchette and Jan Martens Staples filed a challenge to the delegates, who all are supporters of former GOP presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). Cianchette is the state chairman for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, and Staples represents Maine on the Republican National Committee. Jones is a political newcomer who is running as the GOP nominee for state representative in House District 112, which covers most of Falmouth. In May, he was elected one of Maine’s 15 atlarge delegates to the national convention in Tampa later this month. “I fully intend to be in Tampa,” Jones said. “We were duly elected, and I’m confident we’ll all be seated.” The challenge to the delegates claims that rules regarding quorum, credentialing, and ballot security were broken at

The racers started crossing the finish line as early as 9:05 a.m. Saturday in a light northeasterly wind. The Monhegan Island Race is Maine’s oldest and most prestigious offshore sailing competition. “Morning Star,” right, skippered by Jim Palmer, sails toward a first place finish in the Manana Island Class at last weekend’s 78th Monhegan Race. Other division winners included “Revolution II,” skippered by Doyle Marchant (Division I), “Intangible,” skippered by Wolfgang Bauchinger (Division II), “Buzz,” skippered by Richard Stevenson (Double Handed), “Tittravate,” skippered by Steve Ribble (Seguin Island) and “Supply and Demand,” skippered by Casey Mulligan (Multihull).

Freeport council debates ‘quiet zones’ in anticpation of Downeaster By Will Graff FREEPORT — Residents filled the town council chambers Tuesday night to show their support for the adoption of “quiet zones” at town railroad crossing in anticipation of the increased train traffic beginning with the Downeaster later this fall. The town is proposing to install eight of these zones, which would eliminate routine Index Arts Calendar ................19 Classifieds .....................26 Community Calendar.....21 Meetings ........................21

use of whistles for trains traveling through the town, except in emergency situations. Train operators are currently required by federal law to use their whistle at every intersection at varied distances and lengths depending on the speed of the train. The council debated different methods of channelization, a traffic separation device de-

signed to prevent drivers from skirting around railroad crossing arms. The two most popular methods with the council were building islands or placing walls of plastic tubes between traffic lanes. Railway consulting engineer, Wayne Duffet, of TEC Associates in South Portland, said the town already meets the federal threshold for establishing quiet

zones, but for safety, he recommended installing channelization at all railroad crossings in town. The estimated cost for each of the eight installations would be about $15,000, he said. In addition to the about twice daily freight trains — often rolling through at night, soundSee page 30

Ambassadors sign on to Jetport program By David Harry PORTLAND — As she settles into her new role, Portland resident Helen Barnes finds she can be stumped. “I wasn’t sure how to get to Cushing Island,” she admitted as she talked about her first days as an Airport Ambassador at the Portland Jetport. Barnes, 81, is the first to volunteer for the program designed to help arriving and departing passengers navigate the newly expanded airport. Deputy Airport Director Scott Carr said about 20 people have applied for the volunteer positions since the call went out last month.

Ambassadors are asked to work at least one four-hour shift per week and must be cleared by the Transportation Security Administration in order to work beyond security checkpoints. The process includes getting fingerprinted, which stunned Barnes at first, she said. “We want to enhance the passenger experience at the Jetport, so someone is always there to any extent possible to assist arriving and departing passengers. It’s the little things we can help with that can make a good experience an excellent one,” Carr said. Volunteers are trained about airport history, the layout of the facility, customer

Barnes spent her first shifts at the information desk adjacent to the baggage claim area on the first floor, and is eager to get out from behind the desk to help travelers throughout the airport. A retired psychologist, Barnes also volunteers with hospice patients. She has been challenged by health difficulties of her own and relies on a motorized chair to get around. “As long as I have my automobile here, I can do anything,” she joked about her chair. She has also proved an effective program recruiter. As Barnes began her shift last Wednesday, her neighbor, Kristina MacCormick, walked into the administration office to fill out an application.

Unsung Hero: Linda Baker, museum docent extraordinaire

By David Treadwell PORTLAND — When you talk to Falmouth’s Linda Baker, two facts soon emerge: She knows her art, and she loves her job as a superstar volunteer docent at the Portland Museum of Art. “Art tells us about history,” Baker said recently. “About what was important at the time it was created.” Baker’s life path, as is the case with most people, didn’t follow a straight course. She grew up in New Jersey, where she attended nursing school. From there she moved to Boston, where she worked Comment on this story at:

in pediatrics at Massachusetts General Hospital. After her youngest child was grown up, she returned to school, earning a B.A. in history at Emmanuel College. While there, Linda got her first real taste of art appreciation. “Sister Ellen, the art history teacher, was wonderful,” Baker said. “I did well on papers that addressed various pieces of art, and that experience stuck in my mind.” Later, after earning her business degree

Martin’s Point replacement bridge design discussed By William Hall PORTLAND — Several dozen area residents gathered at a public meeting in Portland City Hall on Aug. 7 to discuss design details for replacing Martin’s Point Bridge, which crosses the Presumpscot River to connect Veranda Street in East Deering with U.S. Route 1 in Falmouth. The replacement bridge’s railings, landscaping, and pedestrian pathways were topics of the meeting, led by Carol Morris, spokesperson for the project’s contractor team of CPM Constructors of Freeport and engineering firm Vanasse Hangen Brustlin of Watertown, Mass. Final details of the design will be discussed at a public meeting in late September or early October, she said. The Maine Department of Transporta-

tion awarded the contract for replacing the bridge to the CPM/Vanasse team in July, after it submitted a $23.5 million proposal for the work. The proposal calls for two vehicle lanes, each bordered by a bicycle lane; a sidewalk on the bridge’s western side; a wider, multi-use pathway on the eastern side; and two platforms on the eastern side that will provide space for fishing and sightseeing. Morris presented recommendations of the Martin’s Point Bridge Advisory Committee, a group of residents, municipal officials, and others formed by MDOT to provide public input on the project. Among the recommendations: • The design will feature railings made of aluminum recycled from the existing bridge; they will top concrete barriers on

the western side of the bridge and dividing the roadway from the multi-use pathway on the eastern side; • The eastern edge of the bridge will feature an open, lattice-like fence of the recycled aluminum; • Concrete piers supporting the bridge deck will be slanted and will fit completely underneath it, to prevent birds from nesting on them; • Each platform will be approximately 300 square feet in area, with bench seating; • Landscaping on the Falmouth side of the bridge will include a public space with a short walking path, trees, and possible outdoor sculpture or signage. Landscaping for the Portland approach to the bridge was the subject of much of the meeting’s discussion.

The accepted design calls for extending the bridge’s multi-use pathway as far as the northern entrance to the Martin’s Point Health Care campus. But at that point, the pathway would connect to an existing, narrower, unprotected sidewalk. To continue traveling on Portland’s network of walking trails and bikeways, which start on the western side of Veranda Street, pedestrians and cyclists would have to go to the nearest crosswalk. That crosswalk is at the health care facility’s southern entrance, more than 100 yards away. East Deering Neighborhood Association President Cheri Junewicz called the space between the multi-use pathway and the crosswalk “a missing link.” The link is even more important as the city considers plans for extending walking and cycling paths, according to Junewicz.

New SAD 51 program blends math, science, other areas By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — With an eye toward better preparing its students for the 21st century workplace, School Administrative District 51 is introducing the “STEM” program to its Greely Middle School curriculum. An acronym for science, technology, engineering and math, STEM will be taught by Rebecca Keith as the school starts its 2012-13 year. “It’s a very interesting area,” Superintendent Robert Hasson said Tuesday of

the course, which will ultimately be taken by all the school’s students. “Schools are being encouraged across the country to become more and more immersed in it.” With a recent retirement at that school, the district had both the space and resources to fund the new position, Hasson said. Math and science will still be offered as separate classes. “We didn’t have engineering before, but it’s an area that our students and obviously the world is calling for,” Hasson said. Referring to scientific accomplish-

ments such as this week’s landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars, he noted, “that really is STEM.” Professional development in the literacy field continues, Hasson said, pointing out that writing, reading and communicating are critical skills. The Teacher Evaluation Design Team, composed of teachers and administrators, is also working to establish a new assessment system. Peer observation, with teachers observing teachers and offering feedback, is part of that new design.

“That’s a very powerful model,” Hasson said. “That’s the way it goes on in many professions.” The SAD 51 Board of Directors is also expected this fall to vote on a task force’s recommendation to close North Yarmouth Memorial School and move that school’s students to an expanded Greely Middle School, in order to cut costs.

Cumberland receives funds for new police officer By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — The town will finally fill a vacant police officer job, thanks largely to a federal grant it is receiving. The position is being funded through the U.S. Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Hiring Program. Cumberland is receiving an estimated $125,000 to cover three year’s worth of salary and benefits for an officer, while the town will pay nearly $73,000 during that time for the local match.

Open Enrollment

2012-13 School Year

The Cumberland Community Nursery School is now accepting applications for the 2-Day program and waiting list applications for the 3-Day program. If you would like more information or to arrange a classroom visit with your child, please contact the enrollment coordinator, Julie Perkins at 228-3837 or visit our website:

The Police Department can use the funding to hire military veterans or rehire laid off workers, or those who are scheduled to be laid off at a date on or after the start date of the award. The Town Council is scheduled Monday, Aug. 13, to authorize Town Manager Bill Shane to sign an agreement to receive the funds. The town is required under the terms of the grant to retain the new officer for at least one year after the three-year funding period.

Shane said Monday that a position on the Police Department had remained vacant since a resignation about three years ago. This new position will bring the department’s compliment to 10 people, with an average of two officers per shift. Yarmouth is also receiving the same grant, so both towns may work together in their hiring processes, Shane said. Also on Aug. 13, the council will vote whether to fund up to $15,000 toward legal and engineering studies for natural gas

Child Care


service. Falmouth and Yarmouth are also involved in the process and are expected to contribute the same amount of funding. The three towns are looking into expansion of a natural gas line into their communities as a means of cutting heating expenses. The Town Council is also expected to set a public hearing for Aug. 27 to discuss and act on a contract zone agreement request for two companies, Walnut Hill Investments and Telos Capital, to build separate affordable housing projects on Route 100. The Planning Board is scheduled to make a recommendation on the matter Tuesday, Aug. 21. The two developers are proposing to build single-family homes on properties between Mill and Wilson roads, and in the Village Office Commercial 1 Zone. They need a contract zone because VOC 1 does not allow single-family homes, although it does permit multiplexes, and the minimum lot size is 40,000 square feet, double that sought by the developers.

Teacher hopes to bring Turkish culture to classroom By Will Graff FREEPORT — A two-week-long, guided 2000-mile road tour of Turkey is not a typical summer trip for the average high school teacher. And for Freeport High School social studies teacher, Karen Massey, it was anything but average. “It’s amazing to go to the place where you’ve been teaching about for years,” she said at her Yarmouth home as she recalled visiting the Fertile Crescent. “I’ve traveled a lot and this was one of the best experiences I’ve had.” Massey was one of four Maine teachers, three high school and one middle school, and more than 70 other teachers across the country, who applied, and were chosen for one of three trips to Turkey this summer as

part of partnership with the Turkish Cultural Foundation and the World Affairs Council of America. The program is designed to give teachers the opportunity to incorporate Turkish history and culture into their curriculum, said Amy Holland, executive director of the World Affairs Council of Maine, a nonprofit educational organization. “What we’ve heard is that teachers are not teaching Turkey in their classes,” she said. “The purpose of this program is engage teachers in a conversation about Turkey.” On the trip, the teachers toured around Turkey in a bus, traveled down the side of western province of Gallipoli, followed the coast south, before they cut across the center of the country. The teachers not only

stopped at historical tourist sites, but also met with Turkish teachers and their students, all the while listening to a lecturing tour guide and watching documentaries. “There wasn’t a moment when you were not learning something,” Massey said. Massey said she hopes to weave what she learned on the tour into two of the classes: the freshmen core course, Global Studies, and an upper-class elective called Contemporary Global Issues. “I hope it enhances what I teach and enhances people’s understanding and interest in Turkey,” she said. “Not too many students know much about the Middle East and Turkey. It’s an opportunity to bring

Some of you may have read recent articles in The Portland Press Herald and/or The Maine Sunday Telegram regarding OUI prosecutions. While the Cumberland County DA’s Office has a “general policy” of reducing first offense OUIs with test results of 0.08 and 0.09 to Driving to Endanger ($575 fine and 30 day suspension), my clients generally reject those offers and receive more favorable dispositions which do not include a license suspension at all. DTEs (Driving to Endanger) and more favorable dispositions are often also available to my clients with very high test results (0.15-0.25) as a result of successful plea negotiations in which I am able to convince the DA that the State’s case has significant proof problems. These problems are not apparent according to police reports. Thorough investigation, preparation and expertise in OUI defense reveal them. Such revelations are the stuff from which reduced charges, dismissals and acquittals at trial emanate. My goal is to get you the best disposition possible whether through plea negotiations or trial.

By Will Graff YARMOUTH — The town council will hold a public hearing on the $2.3 million public works garage proposal after a presentation from the town planner introduced more questions about the project at council workshop Thursday, Aug. 2. The council will hold two more public hearings on the subject, the first Aug. 20,

and the second in early September. The council will need to vote on the project by Sept. 20 to allow time to put the proposal on the November ballot, Town Manager Nat Tupper said. The new proposal for the North Road garage was scaled back significantly from earlier projections that carried a price tag of about $7 million. The smaller project will

add two new bays for washing and maintenance and buy land adjacent to the property to allow for expansion in the future. The initial plan had a much larger vision that included building a new facility and moving two sports fields to make room for the larger facility. The current garage, built in the 1960s, continued page 22

Expanding transportation alternatives for seniors and visually impaired By Marena Blanchard PORTLAND — ITNPortland, a local nonprofit, has received a $35,000 grant from the John T. Gorman Foundation to raise awareness of its transportation service by partnering with local houses of worship. ITNPortland provides alternative transportation to seniors and the visually impaired 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for any purpose within 15 miles of Portland. The organization is different from a taxi service because the cost is subsidized by grants and donations. Riders pay below market rate. Drivers are volunteers and they earn credits which can be donated to

economically disadvantaged riders. Bob Dunfey, executive director of ITNPortland, stated that the organization chose outreach to communities of worship in particular because of their inherent support structures and high rates of volunteerism. ITNPortland will distribute $500 seed money to each place of worship to jump start the service. Dunfey said the new initiative aims to let riders try out the service before committing to getting rid of their cars and also to allow volunteers to build up credits so that it ultimately will become self-sustaining. As an example of sustainability, Dunfey spoke of a particular

member of Woodfords Church, who offers to pay for any congregant who needs the service. Dunfey just began outreach to places of worship in greater Portland and hopes to have the service running in the near future. He said that 20 percent of seniors have a disability that impairs their ability to drive and it’s important for relatives to get involved in providing safe alternatives for them. For more information on how to receive

the service or partner with the nonprofit, visit or call (207) 854-0505. Marena Blanchard is The Forecaster news assistant. She can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 115 or mblanchard@ Follow her on Twitter: @soapboxnoise.

Bean in his iconic cautionary tale, “You Don’t Mess Around With Jim.” Bean's is one of the The View world’s great stores. It was a household name long before “Jim,” with its long list of things you absolutely must not do, was written. Why couldn’t one of the warnings have been about the pitfalls of walking into L.L. Bean at high noon on a Saturday in the middle of summer? It could replace, “You don’t spit into the wind.” First of all, we’re not children; we know that line isn’t about spitting. Plus, who Mike Langworthy needs to be told? I learned that lesson on my first school field trip, when I drank too much of the free milk at the dairy farm before the tour. You find out which way the wind is blowing in a hurry when you really, really needed to “spit.” Why couldn’t the song say, “You don’t go to Bean's on a warm June weekend?” Don’t get me wrong; L.L. Bean is one of the jewels in Maine’s crown. I think everybody should shop there – but not all at once. Since I live nearby, and it’s open literally all the time (one of my favorite facts about it is they don’t even have locks on the doors), I should have an off-peak shopping schedule down to a science by now. Instead, I take it for granted. That’s how I found myself stuck there. I had a little spare time, I needed some pants and a tee shirt, so I decided to skip lunch and hop up to Freeport. Rookie mistake. I got sucked into staying by getting my usual great park-

ing place. Parking is the only area of life in which I have good luck, and it’s spooky good luck. People tell me parking can be a nightmare at Bean's, but somebody is always pulling out right next to the building just as I’m coming into the lot. It’s a minor superpower, but you learn not to question it. This day, though, it gave me a false sense of confidence about getting in and out quickly. Unfortunately, it was packed. Not just crowded – Tokyo subway at rush hour crowded. When I opened the door in sporting goods to walk in, the ripple effect knocked over a lady over in sportswear. I wasn’t about to admit this was a mistake because I’m, you know, male, so the only other option was to make the best of it. Which I did by deciding to become an observer of this mad scene, in the hope of learning something I could pass on to future generations. You’re welcome. And so, in no particular order, here are some of those observations. First, about the store and staff: • L.L. Bean is the answer to the question, “Where can I buy a maple sugar lobster even when it’s not maple sugar lobster season?” • L.L. Bean is the best place on Earth to see a bored trout. • People who work at L.L. Bean know what they’re talking about. • People who work at L.L. Bean know more about L.L. Bean than I will ever know about anything. • When employees ask if they can help you, they actually want to help you. • The checkout people have the patience of Job, the stamina of world-class triathletes, and bladders made of chain mail. • If you want to confuse the help, ask them where they keep the fancy clothes. continued next page

Edgar Allen Beem appropriately asked whether America is the greatest country in the world. “American exceptionalism” is not a popular notion these days. We do seem to be racing “from first to worst," to borrow a phrase often used in sports journalism. Why? Considering the sports analogy, when once-championship sports teams go downhill, the reason is usually found in two factors: first, they get a feeling of invincibility, and second, they forget the fundamentals which made them a champion in the first place. America has committed both of these errors. We feel that we can not lose our moral, economic or military superiority, despite lessons from history which say otherwise. And we have lost sight of the founding principals which permitted this “David" to defeat the "Goliath" of that day (Great Britain) and to go on to forge many victories, and to become the great shining beacon on the hill to which many peoples looked for hope – and found it, either in coming to our shores, or when we came to theirs and liberated them. These same founding principals can guide us back to greatness, or can continue to be mocked and left on dusty library shelves. The choice, and the consequences of our choice, are both ours. Edward Palm Bath

Support Tyll in Senate District 11 I have recently gotten to know District 11 state Senate candidate Chris Tyll. Chris’ passion for hard work and service are evident throughout our conversations, during which he thoughtfully listens and responds to my concerns as a resident of North Yarmouth. As I learn more about Chris, I see that he has the experience to successfully serve District 11 in the state Senate. Chris is a father and small business owner who understands the struggles of raising children and running a business in Maine; a Navy SEAL veteran who knows the meaning of true leadership and service, and an active member of the community who recognizes the importance of giving back. The focus and commitment that Chris shows in person, as well as his experience as a father, businessman, Navy SEAL, and community member make him the right choice for District 11. Join me in voting for him this November. Jessica J. Dyer North Yarmouth

The View from Away from previous page Here are some things I learned by watching shoppers and generally drinking in the atmosphere: • There is a disturbing trend toward naming children for comic effect. • The length of your wait in the checkout line is equal to the number of candy and toy barrels lining the route, times the number of children ahead of you, divided by the number of adults accompanying each child. • A surprising number of children believe that blocking a stairway with a rope makes it a play area.

• Wading in an indoor pond is a great way to get your parents’ attention. • Children do not respond to the word “no” unless it is shouted, at which point they look up and scan the horizon like prairie dogs. • A good mantra for shopping at L.L. Bean is, “Must not discipline other people’s children.” • No matter how ferally children behave in public, their parents still love them. • At any given time, the majority of Canadian citizens not in Canada are at L.L.

its Citizens United decision, putting democracy out to the highest bidder. "One person, one vote" should be the rule, but the Citizens United decision gives millions of votes to a few people with millions of dollars. Of course, the real reasons we haven’t yet been able to enact meaningful campaign finance reform are 1) the people who would have to enact it benefit from the corrupt system we have now, and 2) the media outlets that should be serving as watchdogs on campaign finance are the biggest beneficiaries of the abuses. So if we are going to take back democracy, it’s going to take popular support for a constitutional amendment to get bribe money out of our political system. Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig, author of "Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress — And a Plan to Stop It" and a champion of the need for a new Constitutional Convention, has proposed one such campaign finance reform amendment: "No non-citizen shall contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for federal office. United States citizens shall be free to contribute no more than the equivalent of $100 to any federal candidate during any election cycle. Notwithstanding the limits construed to be part of the First Amendment, Congress shall have the power to limit, but not ban, independent political expenditures, so long as such limits are content and viewpoint neutral." As long as we define “citizens” as individual human beings, this might be a good place to start. We just don’t benefit in any way from anonymous entities casting “a big black cloud” over our electoral process. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Locals steal show at Beach to Beacon

By Michael Hoffer Warm and muggy conditions did little to prevent Falmouth’s Ethan Shaw and Shari Piers from becoming the top Maine men and women at Saturday’s 15th annual TD Beach to Beacon 10K road race in Cape Elizabeth. The latest chapter of 1984 Olympic women’s marathon champion Joan Benoit Samuelson’s brainchild was once again memorable due to performances by top athletes from near and far. Athletes from 17 countries and 44 states took part. Shaw, a graduate of Falmouth High School and Dartmouth College, completed the course in a time of 30 minutes, 37.9 seconds, while Piers turned in the top Maine women’s performance (34:21.9) for the fourth consecutive year. “I’ve been fourth or fifth,” said Shaw, a 22-year-old graduate of Falmouth High, “But back then, I was focusing on preparing for the fall (cross country season). It was warm and humid, but there was a nice breeze in the second half of the race when you’re starting to break down.” Shaw held off Jonny Wilson, another product of Danny Paul and Jorma Kurry’s superb Falmouth High cross country and track program. “It means a lot,” Shaw said. “There’s no other race like it. The whole state really comes together for this race, and it’s cool just to be on the center stage once a year. It doesn’t happen very often.” Shaw spotted the 24-year-old Wilson an early lead, but caught his hometown rival at Mile 5 and steadily increased the lead to a final margin of 13.5 seconds. “It was really close all the way through, but I felt a little better on the hills and it just worked out for me today,” said Shaw. “I’ve been

working for the past month to get out here and feel strong and feel good, and things just happened to click at the right time.” Wilson, second among Mainers to Ellsworth’s Louie Luchini in last year’s race, was this year’s pre-race favorite after Luchini and two-time TD Beach to Beacon Maine winner Ben True of North Yarmouth (Greely High) opted to travel to London to watch friends compete in the Summer Olympics. “I went out hard the first mile and was pretty much in the lead chase pack behind the elite

group,” Wilson said. “But I could tell the whole race my legs didn’t feel as well as I had hoped, and at Mile 5, Ethan caught up to me and gradually passed me. I tried to hang with him but I just didn’t have it. In the last mile he was a little stronger than me, I think he ran a smarter race and probably ran a more even pace. “But I’m happy to be second, and at least somebody from Falmouth brought home the win, so that’s pretty cool.” While Piers was happy with her fourth straight win, she fell five

seconds off her goal for the event. “I ran a little harder than I expected in the first mile,” said the 41-year old Piers. “I started out too fast and knew it would catch up with me in the last mile, and it did. I was a little too close to the front (at the start).” Piers said she felt the effect of the morning’s heat and humidity early in the race. “At Mile 2 I thought, ‘Ooh, this is going to be a long day,’” she said. “The last few races I’ve run, they’ve seemed to go by fast. Today, I was looking at my watch the entire time thinking ‘only 30 seconds has past, only a minute.’ It felt so long out there.” Piers set the Maine women’s record for the TD Beach to Beacon of 34:17:0 in 2009. “I had a reach goal, which was to break 34 [minutes],” she said, “But I knew with the conditions that wasn’t going to happen, so I just wanted to get a (personal record) and break the record. But I don’t think I ran very smart. I went out too fast. “I really thought I was in shape for a good day today, but I have to be happy with where I am.” Piers won by a minute, 20 seconds over Erica Jesseman of Scarborough. Abbey Leonardi of Kennebunkport was third in 36:29.9. Jesseman, 23, has battled injuries for much of the year and didn’t expect to challenge Piers. “It wasn’t the best time, but it was good for a day like today,” she said. “Last year I ended up in the medical tent and it wasn’t as hot as it was today, so as I was running I was praying to God to help

me through and he really did.” Kenyans Stanley Biwott and Margaret Wangari-Muriuki captured the top honors. Biwott, four months removed from setting the record for the Paris Marathon, held off fellow countryman and sponsor teammate Stephen Kipkosgei-Kibet to win the men’s elite race. Biwott’s winning time of 27:59.3 was just over two seconds faster than Kipkosgei-Kibet. Wangari-Miruki crossed the finish line in 31:51.6 to finish a half second faster than Emily Chebet, also of Kenya. Ten wheelchair athletes also took part in this year’s TD Beach to Beacon, starting approximately 15 minutes before the main field. Craig Blanchette, 44, of Battle Ground, Wash., won the men’s wheelchair division for the second time in 23:28. Cheri Blauwet, 32, of Boston was the women’s champion in 34:43. Dennis Simonaitis, 50, of Rochester, N.Y., joined Piers as a masters running champion, winning the men’s division with his time of 32:32. He also won the men’s senior (50 and older) title, with Erin Chalat, 51, of Cape Elizabeth (43:26) the women’s senior champion. Samuelson ran the race with fellow marathon champs Bill Rodgers and Frank Shorter. They finished in 1:10:08.

Sox’ aces have been jokers By Bryan O’Connor When the Red Sox lost three of four to the Twins last weekend, including two in a row as a result of late-inning blow-ups, any playoff hopes fans had clung to all spring probably evaporated. One could look back at so many factors that contributed to the demise of a team with one of the game’s best rosters- an absurd rash of injuries, an

inconsistent bullpen, Nick Punto- but it seems to those of us who have been paying attention that underperformance by Jon Lester and Josh Beckett has sunk the Red Sox ship. From 2008 to 2010 (and really going back to October 2007), Lester was one of the best pitchers in the American League. He struck out nearly a batter an inning over that span, walked just over a batter every three innings, and gave up a stingy 48 home runs in 621.2 innings, finishing in the top 10 in ERA each season. In 2011, his strikeout rate dipped a bit, he walked three and a half batters and gave up nearly a home run per nine innings. That was still good for a 3.47 ERA, but not good enough to keep the team from losing in his last four starts during a September collapse. This season has been much uglier in nearly every respect. His walks are actually down to a career low, but why would

anyone want a walk when they can tee off on any of his pitches? His strikeouts are down 24 percent from his peak, despite strikeout rates skyrocketing league-wide. He’s allowed 18 home runs in just 134 innings, the worst full-season mark of his career. Opponents are batting .324 when they put the ball in play against Lester and while we can often chalk that up to luck and bad defense, it’s obvious that hitters have been comfortable digging in against Lester, especially in July. Josh Beckett’s decline has been less linear than Lester’s. Since breaking through as a World Series hero in 2003, he’s essentially been excellent in odd years and awful in even years, the lone exception coming last fall, when he came undone down the stretch after competing for the ERA title all season. This year, Beckett’s striking out almost three fewer hitters per nine innings than in his early-2000s peak, and two fewer than

Joint replacement surgery held to a higher standard.

in his AL peak, shortly after joining the Red Sox. His other peripherals have held steady, but he seems to have lost the ability to strand runners, as 33.5 percent of men who have reached base against Beckett in 2012 have come around to score, compared to an even 20 percent last season. Again, we could chalk this up to bad luck, but no one has accused Beckett of being an offseason gym rat and it’s very possible his poor conditioning is keeping him from staying healthy and pitching effectively deep into games. What I can’t help but wonder, as I give up trying to convince friends and readers that the Sox have a big run left in them, is just how good this team could have been if Lester and Beckett were still pitching like they did in 2009. I realize that 2009 might not be a realistic expectation, as Lester and Beckett were 25 and 29, respectively, but I make the rules in this space, so deal with it. There are several ways to go about measuring the impact of these two pitchers’ declines. I could assume fangraphs’ version of Wins Above Replacement accurately assesses a pitcher’s contribution to his team’s wins and losses, and replace the 4.6 WAR Lester and Beckett have earned this year with the 11.9 WAR they earned in 2009. Add seven wins to the team’s total this year and they’re 61-48, three games behind New York and well ahead of the Wild Card pack. continued next page

If I use baseball-reference’s version, which bases pitcher WAR on run prevention, rather than fielding-independent outcomes (strikeouts, walks, and home runs), Lester and Beckett pick up 10.5 wins, enough to vault Boston into first place, with the best record in the American League. If I wanted to stretch things a little further, I could attribute some of the clubhouse drama to Beckett’s surliness and Lester’s alleged mimicry of Beckett’s attitude and conditioning habits. The team has far underperformed its run differential, often folding offensively and defensively in the late innings of games when the starter or the bullpen blows a lead. If Beckett and Lester were trim and healthy and model citizens, would Kevin Youkilis still be on the team, crushing the ball like he has in Chicago? At this point last season, the Sox were 68-41, which would be the best record in baseball this season. Is it unreasonable to think this year’s team, with a very similar roster and players like David Ortiz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia hitting even better, could have the same record with two aces dominating every fifth day? Rather than speculate about psychological variables, let’s take a simple but scientific look at the issue. In 2009, Lester and Beckett had ERAs of 3.41 and 3.86, respectively. Scoring has decreased seven percent league-wide since then, but simply put, the Red Sox could expect to win most games when Lester and Beckett pitched and they scored at least four runs, and to lose if they scored three or fewer. This assumes even distribution of runs and relievers performing at the same rate, so it’s not perfect, of course, but again, I make the rules. In 2012, Lester has started 22 games, and the team is 8-14 in those games. The team

fans, the media and teammates. There may be little statistical evidence that Beckett is a part of the problem, but it’s hard to picture the team in this much turmoil if he had a 3.00 ERA. But then, if the Red Sox were in contention, what would Beckett’s golf handicap be?

a leading factor. In Lester’s case, it’s undeniable that the team would be in better shape if he were still striking out batters and not giving up homers. In Beckett’s case, most of us can agree that the team would be easier to root for if he maintained more amicable relationships with management,


from previous page

has scored four runs or more in 12 of those starts, so they could be four games better if Lester were consistently giving up fewer than four runs every time out. The Red Sox have been similarly bad in Beckett’s starts, going 7-11. In contrast to Lester’s starts, the offense has only scored four runs in seven of those games, so a fullrun drop in Beckett’s ERA may not give the team another win. A four-run swing would put the Red Sox in second place in the AL East, but still a half game behind the Wild Card leaders. If we’re going to claim that underperformance from the two former aces is the only thing standing between the 2012 Red Sox and a potential World Series run, we have to attribute some of the team’s unwillingness to score runs on nights when Beckett pitches to the clubhouse malfeasance that has left so many fans calling for a trade or waiver (or a catapult). It’s easy to put too much emphasis on the decline of Lester and Beckett in explaining the decline of the Red Sox, but it’s certainly

Out & About

Music from exotic to classical By Scott Andrews There’s an intriguing array of musical choices coming up in Portland and environs. In the city, Caravan of Thieves, a string band with an exotic look and (sometimes) an eerie sound, motors into One Longfellow Square on Friday. This Connecticut-based foursome has been touring North America for the past three years and become very popular at the venue. Also in the Port City, the Portland Chamber Music Festival wraps up its 19th season with a pair of concerts Aug. 16 and Aug. 18. A few miles west in Buxton, arts impresario Pat Packard has back-to-back concerts scheduled this weekend. On Saturday at the Saco River Theatre, catch Inanna: Sisters in Rhythm, a percussion ensemble from Maine. Inanna sports exotic African costumes and the four women specialize in African drumming. Then on Sunday, Packard has invited the classical duo of violinist Geoffrey Day and pianist Lan Lam to play at her adjacent venue, the Old White Church.

Caravan of Thieves Banging on trunks, garbage cans and even a kitchen sink, Caravan of Thieves likes to push creative and performance envelopes. Exotic costuming and onstage shenanigans are twin shticks of the Connecticut-based string band (loosely defined) that deftly crosses normal boundaries between genres and always adds elements of the unexpected to their high-energy live performances. Sometimes the ensemble’s sound is downright eerie. Wearing an incongruous assortment of costumes, the foursome channels spirits from the graveyard and transform musical performances into an

extravagant visual-aural display. Specializing in original tunes, with a smattering of covers from all over, Caravan of Thieves is centered around a husbandwife duo of singer-songwriters. Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni say they draw inspiration for their songs by walking through a graveyard that’s close to their home in Bridgeport. Their musical medium harks back to long-dead artists, especially the “gypsy jazz” string stylings made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli of the Hot Club de France from about 80 years ago. One recent appearance at One Longfellow Square included an arrangement of a toccata by Johann Sebastian Bach plus highly stylized covers of songs by John Lennon, Talking Heads and Queen. It’s definitely not highly homogenized McMusic, says Fuzz Sangiovanni, and lots of others nod heads in agreement. “If you’re weary of the heavily manufactured sounds and slick production values that dominate mainstream music today, then Caravan of Thieves promises to at least provide a satisfying alternative,” writes Philadelphia Intelligencer reviewer Naila Francis. “These songs are soaked in a melange of influences, that while obviously steeped in gypsy swing, bear elements of everything from chamber pop and 1920s hot jazz to vaudeville, folk and bluegrass.” Catch Caravan of Thieves at One Longfellow Square (corner of Congress and State in Portland) at 8 p.m. Aug. 11. Call 761-1757.



Every August the Port City reasserts itself as Maine’s capital of arts and culture when the Portland Chamber Music Festival stages its four-concert season. Last week’s “Out & About” previewed the first two concerts, Aug. 9 and 11. This week let’s look at the last two, slated for Aug. 16 and 18. The festival is directed by co-founder Jenny Elowitch, a Portland violinist who plays with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops. She invites about 20 fellow professionals to play a varied repertoire of small-ensemble music that represents all styles and periods of art music. She is especially enamored of contemporary music, and often invites the composers to attend and address her audiences. Such is the case for the final two dates. The first concert will include “Graces, Furies,” for piano, violin and cello, written by Michael Rose, who will appear on stage to introduce the piece. Likewise on the series finale, composer Sebastian Currier will present his “Verge,” scored for clarinet, violin and piano. Two very well-known pieces have also been slated: Johannes Brahms’ Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, on Aug. 16, and Aaron Copland’s “Suite from Appalachian Spring,” scored for 13 instruments, on Aug. 18. Both concerts take place at 8 p.m. at Abromson Community Education Center, 88 Bedford St. on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus. Call 800320-0257 or visit

Inanna: Sisters in Rhythm Nearly two decades ago, four brilliantly dressed women with an array of African drums burst onto Maine’s music scene. Calling themselves Inanna: Sisters in Rhythm, they advertised themselves as inspired by the ancient traditions of West African drumming. They took their name from an ancient Sumerian goddess who held reign more than 4,000 years ago during a period when they believed that drummers and dancers were predominantly women. The ensemble chose the name of this ancient goddess to express their ties with earlier traditions. Over the years Inanna has become a fixture of the Maine music scene, and this Saturday they’ll perform at one of our state’s loveliest rural arts centers, the Saco River Theatre, on the banks of the namesake watercourse in Buxton. Host is arts impresario Pat Packard, who opened the Saco River Theatre (formerly known as Saco River Grange Hall) two decades ago. Inanna’s core concept remains the same. The quartet is deeply dedicated to the education and cultivation of peace and sharing among cultures through the power of music. Using percussion and vocals, Inanna explores the heritage and rhythms of West Africa through original arrangements and compositions invoking ancient traditions of the drum. Catch Inanna: Sisters in Rhythm at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 11 at Saco River Theatre, Salmon Falls Road in Buxton. Call 929-6472.

violinist Geoffrey Day and pianist Lan Lam. The couple and their family reside in Naples, Florida, where Day is a violinist with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and heads several chamber ensembles. Born in Vietnam and raised in Nova Scotia, Lam earned music degrees from Acadia University the University of Western Ontario. She is active in Florida musical circles. She and her husband form the core of the Aurore Piano Trio. This month the family is motoring north so Lam can direct a music camp in Nova Scotia. Day and Lam will performing at a handful of venues along the route. Sunday’s concert will include sonatas by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. Shorter pieces by Jules Massenet and Joseph Acron will also be played. The concert is slated for 3 p.m. Aug. 12 at the Old White Church, Salmon Falls Road in Buxton. Call 929-6472.

handles all maintenance for town vehicles and equipment. It also acts as the operation base for the snow plows in the winter. Also discussed at the workshop was the appointment of a new fire chief for Yarmouth Fire and Rescue. Michael Robitaille, the acting chief, was recommended by Tupper to become the permanent chief after he replaced 16-year chief Byron Fairbanks at the beginning of the year. "He's been acting very well and we want to give him the chance to work in the role permanently," Tupper said. The council will vote on the appointment at their Aug. 20 meeting. At their next meeting, the council will also consider approving Yarmouth's $15,000 share of a regional natural gas with

Quality hardwood installations

Cumberland and Falmouth. The total cost of the study is $45,000, Tupper said. Although a natural gas pipeline already runs through the western part of Cumberland, a substation would need to be built to distribute the gas to the three towns. The cost of the station would be about $1.5 million and new gas distribution piping into the towns would cost about $350,000 per mile to build. The total estimated project cost is $7.8 million, Tupper said. This total does not include the cost of conversion from oil or propane to gas within buildings or the cost of distribution lines off the main line into neighborhoods, he said. At the workshop, the council also discussed improvements to the library's infrastructure, such as installing new wiring and updating the bathrooms. The estimated cost of the project would be about $1.5 million, with $1 million funded by the town and the remaining $500,000 raised privately. A voting date was not set, but Tupper said the project will come back to the council in October for further review.

MacCormick, a former librarian at the University of New England, gave the same reasons for her desire to volunteer. “I had been thinking about doing this kind of volunteering,” she said. “I enjoy meeting people.” Within an hour last Wednesday morning, visitors to the information desk sought pages for arriving passengers and directions to rental car desks now located outside the terminal. One woman sought a cardboard box to cover the Styrofoam container she was using to ship lobsters. Airport Assistant Security Coordinator Linda Nieves said she expects to play a lead role in training ambassadors, and knows their work will benefit her as well.

“When somebody is confused in the middle of the terminal, we can point them in the right direction,” Nieves said. Planes have been landing at the Jetport site since the 1920s, and it has been Portland property since 1936, Carr said. A $75 million expansion completed about 10 months ago has rearranged TSA security entrances, added departure gates, created more direct access to parking, and altered lane configurations for dropoff and parking areas. Terminal space was doubled to more than 292,000 square feet, Carr said. When Paula Perry, a former Cumberland resident now living in Boise, Idaho stopped to get directions, she noted the changes. “It looks pretty amazing, I have no idea when it happened,” she said. Carr said the response from volunteers has been encouraging, and added at least one passenger has already emailed thanks for help from Jetport staff, including Barnes. Carr shared an email from visitor Malcolm Sands, who said staff arranged for his father to get a new flight after one was cancelled while making him feel comfortable. Being sociable is an asset, but Barnes said the ambassador role is easy to learn. “You don’t have to be a psychologist to do this,” she said. To learn more about the ambassador program, call 874-8877 or visit David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@ Follow him on Twitter: @DavidHarry8.

Delegate from page 1 the state convention, and so the election of the Paul supporters is invalid. But the challenge is “not about the rules, and not about Ron Paul, but about people who didn’t get their way,” Jones said. “We had an unconventional convention, and some people didn’t like it.” He said the lack of grounds for the challenge is demonstrated by the fact that the election of at-large delegate Gov. Paul LePage is not being contested. Meanwhile, an online petition supporting the choice of delegates has collected approximately 1,000 signatures, according to Jones. The petition will be presented to the Republican National Committee, whose own Contest Committee will hear the challenge in about a week. That committee finding may be challenged before the party’s Credentials Committee, or even before the full convention, which gets underway Aug. 27.

Freeport school from page 6 them beyond the headlines.” The program, called Portrait of Turkey, is three phases. It began with the application process and the tour and will be bookended with the final phase where the teachers showcase turkey and Turkish culture this fall through activities, such as book groups, discussion sessions and food tastings, said

Ian Byrne, communications and development officer for the World Affairs Council in Washington D.C. The council is a national organization that has member councils across the country. The member councils act in coordination with the national organization, but are independent in operation, Holland said. The trips are paid for in large part by the Turkish Cultural Foundation, with the teachers paying about $600 of the total cost. This year’s program included 23 different councils from around the country. The Maine council had 13 teachers come to the initial workshop and a total of eight applications, Holland said. The program, which is only offered to high school and middle school teachers, had three teachers from Maine attend last year’s tour. Massey, who had never been to Turkey, said she was always interested in visiting and thinks her students would be surprised at how similar the country is to other western nations. “Turkey today didn’t seem exotic. It’s not stranger than going to Paris,” she said, pointing out the similarities in architecture and style of living. “The economy is growing fast. You can see it everywhere.” In her classes she said she wants to put more of a focus on Turkey and the Middle East, specifically on the Neolithic Revolution and the fall of the Ottoman Empire. “Most teens don’t have an interest in the outside world,” she said. “My job is to spark that interest.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ Follow him on twitter: @W_C_Graff.

Martin’s Point from page 4 As part of the project, the wooded area on the western side of Veranda Street, where the trail network begins, also would be landscaped. Currently, the area is overgrown, and a graffiti-covered guardrail blocks entrance to one of the trails. The new bridge will be built immediately next to the eastern side of the current one, and will closely follow its footprint. The current bridge will remain open during construction, which is scheduled to begin next

The demolition will not require explosive blasting, said CPM Vice President Peter Krakoff. The current bridge, more than 70 years old, carries 15,600 vehicles a day. The bridge was renovated in 1991, but MDOT determined in 2010 that a replacement was necessary because of the bridge’s deteriorating condition.

ing their whistle — the Downeaster will bring an estimated three trains through town every day on their way from Boston to Brunswick starting in November. The schedule of the Downeaster will not be released by the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority until next month. Even if the council voted to establish

quiet zones and build channelization devices within the next month, construction realistically couldn’t begin until spring, Town Manager Dale Olmstead said. Council Chairman Jim Cassida and Councilwoman Kate Arno said they would like to experience the Downeaster without quiet zones before deciding one way or another on the issue. The council will hold a number of meetings in the coming months before they make a decision on quiet zones,

Cassida said.

Other business The council unanimously adopted an organic pest management plan for all town-owned properties to limit the exposure of potentially hazardous chemicals to soil, surface and ground water, as well as people and animals. The plan was born out of a resident’s concern about pesticides being used at the library, Cassida said. According to the plan, the future use

of pesticides will only be allowed in emergency situations when organic pest management is not effective. The town council also officially appointed Peter Joseph, Jr., of Lincoln, N.H., as the new town manager with a unanimous vote to sign his contract. He first day will be Sept. 17.

Unsung Hero from page 3 the Portland Museum of Art, and soon thereafter enrolled in a docent-training course. In 2002, she was officially certified as a docent. Baker’s docent duties have run the gamut: giving general tours to visitors of all ages; leading tours for school groups; going out into the schools to give students early lessons in art appreciation; and serving as president of the Docent

Council, which meets monthly. Baker especially shines before an audience of young people. During busy school seasons, she might give three or four tours a week. “I’ve found my niche with children,” she said. “Young people see things in a work of art that docents might miss. And the younger they are, the more open they are to learning and the more you can learn from them. With children, anything can happen, and it usually does. “I love to see that little spark in their



eyes,” she said, “that moment when they really get it about some painting or piece of sculpture. For Baker, as for all of the museum’s docents, the tours and presentations do not follow a one-size-fits-all pattern. “With children in school groups especially, I first take the measure of the group,” Baker said. “I assess where they’re from, whether they’ve ever been to a museum before, what art they’ve experienced in school, and so on. I then tailor my remarks accordingly.”

• land • homes • rentals • commercial • summer property

Dana Baldwin, the museum’s director of education and the 2011 recipient of a National Museum Education of the Year Award, knows she has a winner in Baker. “Linda Baker is one of our top go-to people,” Baldwin said. “She’s very smart, very conscientious, and very welcoming. And she’s a terrific teacher, always creating new ways to make a visit to the museum a fun and engaging experience.” Consult the website, portlandmuseum. org, to learn more about volunteer opportunities at the Portland Museum of Art.
