Falmouth’s hidden poor

Town sees dramatic increase in demand for aid

By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — When people think of Falmouth, they probably visualize expensive homes and fancy cars whose owners spend their days playing golf and sipping drinks at one of the town’s three country clubs. While that may be an accurate image of the lives of some residents, for a growing but frequently ignored segment of Falmouth’s population, such a lifestyle is more like something out of a fairy tale. While the average singlefamily home value in town is just over $450,000, in the past year the number of Falmouth residents requesting general assistance has nearly doubled. Schools have seen a steady increase in the number of children qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches, and the Falmouth Food Pantry, which opened in July 2008, now regularly provides services to more than 140 people. “We’ve been inundated with new clients,” said Dorothy Blanchette, who runs the food pantry at Town Hall.

Barbara Anderson, 59, and her husband Phil, rely on regular visits to the food pantry to provide them with items they can’t purchase with the food stamps they receive from the state. “Phil always says we live

on Poorside, not Foreside,” Anderson said. The couple live on Longwoods Road in the house where Phil grew up, the house his parents built in the 1930s. Phil worked as a car mechanic for years and Barbara worked as an aide for an elderly woman who lived nearby. A few years ago, Phil was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and emphysema and could no longer work. Not long after, the woman Barbara cared for died. Now the couple live on Phil’s disability payments, which are less than their mortgage payment. “We’re about to lose our home,” Barbara said. “That’s the worst thing that could happen to my husband.” In addition to relying on the food pantry for food, toiletries, cleaning supplies and other necessities, the Andersons also recently received help paying their electric bill. “Our friends save up their bottles for us so we can return them,” she said. “It helps.” Barbara has lived in Falmouth for 20 years.

Revised school honor code gets initial OK from School Committee By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — With the help of students, parents, administrators and coaches, the school honor code has been revised to emphasize responsibility and accountability over punishment and consequences. A draft of the revised Yarmouth Extracurricular Code of Conduct was presented to the

School Committee for a first reading at a Thursday, Aug. 26, meeting. School Committee Chairman David Ray said review of the code began before a muchpublicized lawsuit in April that accused Yarmouth High School administrators of violating a student’s constitutional rights after they punished her for allegedly

breaking the code. Although the U.S. District Court case was dropped after a judge suggested it had little merit, it raised questions about acceptable student behavior, constitutional rights and integrity. High school Principal Ted Hall said that based on a survey completed at the end of last

school year, there is continued support for an honor code. “We learned we didn’t have to take a really strong turn, just make adjustments,” he said. The draft version of the code covers all extracurricular activities, not just sports teams, and clears up language surrounding embarrassing behavior. The original code stated “No

student shall be involved in any act or activity that might embarrass the community, school, team, coach, or himself/herself. For violation of this rule, the coach and school administration will determine the appropriate disposition on a case-by-case basis.” See page 33

Back from the ashes: Tenants to begin moving into rebuilt building on Route 1 By Alex Lear YARMOUTH — More than a year and a half after a fire displaced more than two dozen businesses at 500 Route 1, the first tenant will soon move into the rebuilt office building. The orthodontic practice of Dr. Mark Fischer is expected to reopen by the end of the month. He has been sharing office space in Freeport. “We’re thrilled to be back here again,” Fischer said on Friday. “Most of our patients are in this area. ... It’s kind of a natural fit for us to be back here again.” Fischer, whose wife Teresa serves as office manager, said his new office will be about 1,600 square feet, roughly twice the size of his space in the original building, where he had operated since 2003. “It’s been a long year and a half of being like gypsies driving back and forth to Freeport, carrying our ... instruments,” he said. The Jan. 2, 2009, fire was set by Everett S. Stickney of Everett, N.H., who was

sentenced last November to 11 1/2 years in prison. He had to pay $3.7 million in restitution to the owners of the displaced businesses and their 14 insurance companies. Damage was estimated at about $3.5 million, while more than $1 million was lost in uninsured expenses. Art Dyer of Harpswell, who owns the property with his wife, Elizabeth, said on Friday that rebuilding began last October. He said the original three-story building, constructed in the 1980s and measuring about 22,000 square feet, housed 26 small businesses. Its successor is smaller, about 19,000 square feet in two stories, and should fit about five or six larger tenants, Dyer said, noting that fewer businesses will make the property easier to manage. Besides Fischer, a health-care business and insurance practice are expected to move in. The Dyers had owned the property for two years before the fire. “The fire really affected a lot of people,

Art and Elizabeth Dyer of Harpswell say they are pleased to see the first business moving into their reconstructed building at 500 Route 1 in Yarmouth, 19 months after a fire destroyed the structure.

not only financially but emotionally,” Dyer said. “There were a lot of people that lost money.” Elizabeth Dyer said on Friday that she felt good about the progress at 500 Route 1, but noted that the past year and

RSU 5 hears debate over who gets unused modular classroom in Durham By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — Durham school sports boosters and the town of Durham are in a tug-of-war over use of a former mobile classroom.

the boosters were more closely related to the school and agreed to donate it to them for equipment storage and meeting space.

With the new Durham Community School built and ready for students, the two-classroom modular unit once used for student overflow is no longer needed.

A majority of board members last week said they thought it should remain in Durham to benefit the residents who purchased it in the first place, but some thought it was a discussion for the town and the boosters.

The dispute came to the Regional School Unit 5 Board of Trustees on Aug. 25, but was tabled until Sept. 22 meeting so that more information can be gathered. Superintendent of Schools Shannon Welsh said the Durham School Committee held a meeting in May 2009 to discuss what to do with the modular unit after the new school was built. Although both the town and the boosters expressed interest, the School Committee thought

Corrections A story in the Aug. 11-13 editions should have said the tuition received by Aucocisco School for each elementary student is $26,425. Last week’s story “Say ‘cheese’ while you smoke that carrot” should have said Brian Beasley is 18 years old and that he was arrested on a charge of theft for allegedly stealing a bottle of water from a police surveillance van. Police initially said he stole “several items.”

The RSU became the owner of the unit through school consolidation.

Welsh said if the board could not see an educational use for the mobile classroom, legally it would be turned over to the town of Durham for a decision by selectmen. If the board could find an educational use, it would stay with the RSU. “In trying to honor the Durham School Committee’s decision to keep it in Durham, it makes sense to leave it in Durham to benefit the immediate needs there,”

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/66359

Welsh said. “Whatever decision is made should be made at the Durham level, not the RSU level. Because of the potential legal conflict, (RSU 5 does) not need to be a part of it.” But Troy True, president of the Athletic Club of Durham, and several RSU 5 board members argued there is a need for additional storage space in the school district. True said the modular unit could be used to expand the boosters programming, and be used to house sports equipment and cooking equipment needed for fundraising purposes. He said equipment is now kept in an AmVets storage facility and at residents’ homes.

Durham Board of Selectmen, said the town could use the modular unit to house public records and to hold meetings.

Welsh said without having details on where the mobile unit would be placed, what additional costs could be associated with it, and more information from the Durham Board of Selectmen, the RSU 5 board could table the decision until its next meeting on Sept. 22. In addition, two of the three Durham representatives to the board were not present at last week’s meeting. “There are competing demands that are very valid,” Welsh said. “This is not an easy decision.” Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or aanderson@theforecaster.net

The next budget crisis

‘Someone else’s problem’ contributes to Maine’s pension debt Second in a series by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting about the state’s debt to teachers and state employees for their pensions and retiree health care. Next: Put it in the Constitution. By John Christie How does a state of only 1.3 million people end up $4.4 billion behind in its payments for just one state program? It doesn’t pay its bills on time, makes promises without knowing the costs, loses money in the stock market and ignores repeated warnings that the debt is getting worse by the year. The official name of the debt is the unfunded actuarial liability, and the program is the pension for Maine state employees and public school teachers. The $4.4 billion represents $3,385 in debt for every man, woman and child in

the state. The debt is so large it eats up 10 percent of the state budget – more than the budget for the state colleges – and is projected to need an even larger portion of tax dollars in coming years, perhaps as much as one out of every five dollars Maine residents pay in state taxes. The Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting has reviewed multiple studies of the pension system, legislative records, historical reports from the pension trustees and interviewed more than a dozen experts to get to the root causes of the pension liability. The research not only shows how this particular problem was created, but also offers a larger lesson in how Maine’s state government operated. The story of the pension debt that many are calling a looming fiscal crisis is the story of how a government can create a fiscal mess for taxpayers by satisfying the needs of a politically significant group while pushing the costs into a future that has now arrived.

An ‘afterthought’ Few in the state are as knowledgeable about the Maine pension system as Robert

A. G. Monks, the chairman of two blueribbon studies of the system that strongly warned of the current problem. The cost of pensions, said Monks, a Cape Elizabeth resident, “has been an afterthought” at the Statehouse. For decades, he said, the attitude had been, “Hey, it’s someone else’s liability. It’s not going to come up in our session.” Instead, starting in the late 1940s and right up until the mid-1990s, with a few exceptions, legislators and governors from both parties expanded and improved the pension benefits, often without an accurate estimate of the costs or a plan to pay for them. Peter Leslie, a member the 1988 Monks commission and a trustee since 1995, explained the accumulated debt this way: “You don’t pay it the first year and you don’t pay the next year and you don’t pay it the next year. It compounds fast.” As Alan Caron, whose nonpartisan thinktank Envision Maine is about to release a report called “Reinventing Maine Government,” said: “The art of politics is giving things – not taking things away.” The “giving” started as early as 1913, when the Legislature granted veteran teachers an annual pension of $250. And until 1943, governors had the right to grant pensions to individual state employees on their own.

In 1943, the Legislature granted pensions to all long-time state employees who worked until they were 65. Even then, the pension board’s trustees were concerned about the future costs of putting that many people into a system that neither the state nor the employees had contributed to up to that point. That’s why those trustees – 67 years ago – recommended that the state put an amount aside each year to pay for the pensions. If the Legislature and governors did that, the trustees estimated the debt would be “completely paid off over a period of about 30 years.” Those 30 years came and went in 1973. The debt had not only not been paid off – it was more than $200 million. The current projected date for paying off the liability is 2028.

Rolling over the debt

Perhaps the most important year in the history of the pension system was 1947, when the Legislature took on the responsibility to pay pensions of public school teachers across the state. A year later, the trustees reported to the Legislature that with the addition of the teachers, the membership in the pension system went from 5,000 to 12,000, a 140 percent increase – without a matching amount of new assets. The assets did not match the liability because the teachers until then had never contributed to the pension system. They have since then, but those early debts rolled over and over along with other failures to fully fund the system to the point where in the early 1990s Maine’s pension funding was the third worst in the country.

Pension from previous page State Sen. Peter Mills, R-Cornville, was a member of the most recent study of the pension system and has become a student of its history. “Back 40, 50, 60 years ago,” he said, “teaching was always someone’s second job and state employment didn’t pay all that well. The Legislature ... made it up to you with a nice pension. They felt many wouldn’t live long enough to enjoy it and it wouldn’t be all that expensive. “But thanks to modern health care,” Mills said, “we live a lot longer, and through collective bargaining they got themselves pretty good pay raises,” which are used to calculate their pension. Another long-time legislator and former state financial officer, Sawin Millett, RWaterford, recalled: “The state took on the liability for the teachers (pension) without receiving any assets. It was a generosity thing. ... Also, no one was doing any actuarial work that would assess the future costs, so they didn’t see the problem we’d have down the line.” That problem – the accumulated liability – was aggravated numerous times because the state improved benefits without putting aside enough money to pay for them, according to the studies.

Warning signals go up In 1973, for example, the Legislature made seven improvements to the pension, including lowering the number of years of services required for full retirement from 30 to 25. In 1975, the pension trustees’ report listed a whole page of changes made by the Legislature that it estimated would cost $1.1 million in 1978, when they were in full effect. The trustees also issued fresh warning signals that year about the state’s need to start paying more on the long-term liability. They asked the Legislature for a $5.8 million appropriation to help make up for the debt the system inherited when the Legislature took on the teacher pensions “This amount was deleted from executive budget and was not recognized by the legislative budget,” the trustees said. “The result of this ... will mean that the funding period on the Systems’ accrued liability will run for 29 years vs the 21 years which had

been scheduled heretofore.” Again, a pessimistic projection wasn’t pessimistic enough: Those 29 years expired in 2004 without paying off the debt. In 1978, the trustees were still making the point. To help pay for the cost of taking on the teachers and other losses, they borrowed from the pension assets of state employees and the recently hired teachers who were now contributing from their paychecks. They said the accumulated borrowings for the old system retirement allowance account amounted to nearly $105.9 million on June 30, 1978. Two years later, the first of three formal studies on the pension system was completed and the warnings continued: “The (Maine State Retirement System) is not being funded on a realistic basis,” the study said, citing a $12 million gap between what the governor and Legislature had appropriated for 1980 and what was needed to avoid a negative cash flow. The state’s failure to fund the teachers’ pensions, the report said, meant “virtually the entire burden of funding this liability will be deferred well into the 1990s,” a prediction that proved true, with the exception that it not only extended into 1990s, but also well into this century. Eight years later, in 1988, what is known as the “Monks One” study was released. One of the first things that commission did was look at the 1980 study. The Monks

group concluded the 1980 study’s stern message “was not well received by the (pension) Board and the System’s actuary” and that legislation to fix the problem “was ignored.’ One the biggest problems the 1988 study brought to light was that state employees and teachers were often retiring well before age 65 – but the pension’s projections were based on employees working until they were 65. That drove up the costs because employees stopped contributing to the system earlier and started collecting from it sooner. The Monks One research found that Maine’s system was only 39 percent funded, meaning it had nowhere near enough money to pay all future benefits. The average across the county for state system at that time was 72 percent funded. Despite all of these warnings, the records show the Legislature continued to improve pension benefits while failing to pay enough into the system, adding to the liability a number of times.

No questions asked

David Wakelin, who was brought on the pension board after serving on the first Monks commission, recalled: “They promised benefits that were not adequately funded ... they had an actuary who had assumptions that were not consistent with what was happening on the ground. No one was holding their feet to the fire.” For example, no one asked the question “Do you understand that this benefit you promised will cost $500 million?,” Wakelin said. Ryan Low, who until July was Gov. John Baldacci’s chief financial officer, said that up until the mid-1990s, “my understanding is – I wasn’t around – is the state would get the bill and sometimes they would make the full payment and sometimes they would make considerably less.” The Monks Two study, done in 1994, concluded: Maine’s pension plan “is highly vulnerable to an absence of discipline in the legislative and executive processes of budgeting.” continued page 33

PORTLAND — An annual walk to raise money to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis will be held at the Baxter Boulevard entrance of Payson Park on Saturday, Sept. 11. Registration will be held from 9-10:30 a.m., followed by the walk at 10:30 a.m. ALS, known more commonly as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is an incurable, progressive neuromuscular condition that impacts 30,000 people each year. Life expectancy from the time of diagnosis is two to five years. The 3.5-mile walk, organized by the Northern New England Chapter of the ALS Association, is being held to raise funds for patient services and research for people with the disease. Log onto alsanne.org to register for the event or learn more about it, or call Portland walk chairwoman Cindy Churchill at 829-4570.

FALMOUTH — A text-message notification system is now available for anyone interested in receiving emergency town announcements on their cell-phone. E-mail notifications are also available. “We’re not going to use this for routine notifications,” Fire and Rescue Chief Howard Rice said. “This is for major stuff. We’ll reserve this for true emergencies.” Rice said the Falmouth Emergency Management Agency wanted to get the program up and running before Hurricane Earl arrives this weekend. “If a road is closed or we open the shelter, you’d get a message,” Rice said. The new program is run through Virtual Town Hall, which also runs the town’s website. Sign-up for texts or e-mails can sign up on the website, at www.town. falmouth.me.us/vsubscriber#.

FALMOUTH — A motorcyclist was killed in an accident on Middle Road on Aug. 27 at around 7 p.m., when he reportedly crossed the yellow line on a bridge and struck an oncoming car head-on. Mikhail Filatov, 25, of Gray, was driving south on Middle Road when police believe he lost control of his motorcycle, struck a car traveling north, then struck the guardrail of the bridge. He was pronounced dead at the scene. “We believe it was a little bit of speed and driver inexperience and/or inattention,” said Sgt. Frank Soule. “There was nothing to indicate drugs, alcohol.” Filatov, who was an employee at the Falmouth House of Pizza, was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured. Middle road was closed for approximately three and a half hours Friday evening while emergency crews responded to the accident.

Gaelic for ‘horse’: Falmouth pasture becomes Capall Creek Farm Kevin Smith and his daughter Paige, 3, say hello to one of the horses boarding at their farm on Route 100 in Falmouth. Smith bought the farm last week and will be turning it into a horse boarding and training business. His wife, Amy Sterling, and Canadian trainer Jeff Temple will offer lessons and training at the iconic Falmouth farm that Smith is calling Capall Creek Farm.

By Emily Parkhurst

Emily Parkhurst / The Forecaster

FALMOUTH — Kevin Smith is a self-described sports fanatic, particularly golf and hockey, who never imagined he would own a horse farm. But when his daughter Abby fell in love with horses and began training with Amy Sterling, it seems fate intervened. Not long after they met, Smith and Sterling fell in love and married. As she got older, his daughter became more and more passionate about riding. His youngest daughter, Paige, also became interested in horses. Last week, Smith officially became the owner of an iconic 79-acre farm on Route 100, where white fences meander over rolling hills, dotted with quarter horses. “I bought it for my girls,” Smith said. What was once a private farm, owned by Rick Lane, is slated to become a horse and people-filled community. The family business Smith now calls Capall Creek Farm will offer riding lessons, horse boarding, quarter-horse training, clinics and shows. Capall, Smith said, is Gaelic for horse. “We want this to be a place where kids can just come,” said Sterling, who is hoping to offer summer camps on the farm. She has already begun teaching a few students at the farm. Before moving to Falmouth, Sterling owned a farm in Windham, where she

gave riding lessons and trained horses for shows. Tragedy struck there in December 2008, when a fire destroyed the farm and killed eight horses. Despite the loss, Sterling maintained her passion for training horses and the people who ride them. “I’ve always loved working with youth. I think riding teaches them responsibility and passion,” Sterling said. “This is really good for all the kids.” Canadian quarter-horse trainer Jeff Temple will join Sterling at the farm in October, bringing along eight to 10 horses. Smith estimated that after they return from the annual American Quarter Horse Congress in October and get the farm fully up and running, they will have approximately 50 horses on the property. In the old barn that sits right up next to Route 100, called the Mare Barn, they will house mares and foals, hopefully breeding show horses. Smith said several people have already stopped by to ask if they board horses. “Until now, people have had to go up to New Gloucester to board their horses,” said Smith. “There’s nothing like this in Falmouth.” Abby Smith, who is now 12 years old, said she is excited to have her three best

Falmouth library still likes Lunt The board of trustees of Falmouth Memorial Library would like to clarify that, consistent with our written resolution of Aug. 17 and Trustee Sean Joyce’s comments, we believe that moving to Lunt very likely will meet our long-term needs. Our concern is and has been that this move is accomplished in the most fiscally prudent manner possible. With that in mind we are resolved to continue to speak with the town, the Town Council and our fellow residents in order to achieve this in the most satisfactory way possible for all parties concerned. Additionally, based on our conversations with other Falmouth residents, it may be helpful if we clarified that the library is a private not-for-profit organization, and not a town department. However, the town of Falmouth and the library have an affiliation agreement that needs to be renegotiated if the library

occupies a different space. The town and the library are currently discussing a modified agreement in the event a move to Lunt school does occur. Chantal Walker, president Falmouth Memorial Library

What is Falmouth hiding? The reason I have used the Freedom of Access Act to gather facts is because of tips I received from Falmouth citizens about continuous waste of tax dollars. Can anyone reading this think of any institution that writes two checks totaling nearly $38,000 without anything in the file folder except a paid invoice? Falmouth paid this money for a total of 13 crosswalks on Route 1 and around the schools that have worn off the pavement. Not a contract copy, not a bid document, not an OEM document, not a warranty document could be found. What happened to those documents? Why were

September 2, 2010

they lost or destroyed? Why wouldn’t Town Manager Nathan Poore when he “discovered” these facts ask the vendor for copies of their contracts? What, if anything, is being hidden by these tactics? What else are we wasting our tax dollars on? Michael Doyle Falmouth

Support the Falmouth Flyer For the past four years I have been taking the Flyer bus to Portland and back at least once a week. Riding the bus saves me the hassle of finding a place to park, and dealing with traffic, pedestrians, etc. The Portland Public Library, Monument Square, the Maine Historical Society and many other places of interest are within easy walking distance of the Elm Street bus terminal, and from there it’s possible to transfer to bus lines going to other parts of the city, even to Westbrook and the Maine Mall. If you haven’t ridden the bus yet, give it a try. The drivers are pleasant and the ride is relaxing. Public transportation cuts down on air pollution and traffic. Keep the ridership up and keep the Flyer running. Dolores Rimkunas Falmouth

Say ‘no’ to Falmouth facilities plan We have lived in Falmouth since 1965 and have managed just fine without a community center. With the economy the way it is, I don’t feel that the average Falmouth resident can keep taking on more and more just because a certain few feel this is the way we should go. We try to teach our children to live within their means and to be thinking ahead for a rainy day. I don’t think that’s what is being proposed with all these wants. The town wanted to eliminate certain street lights to save money and now it’s being suggested to take on moving the library, the Town Hall and have a community center. What’s wrong with this picture? Let’s get real: we can’t afford it. Maybe there are too many people on the payroll for the amount of services rendered. I would hate to see the town take on projects of this magnitude and see people feel they can no longer afford to live here. It’s a beautiful town. Let’s keep it that way. I suggest that this project be put on the back burner and let this site be used for something to bring money in to be set aside for that “rainy day.” It’s time to say “no.” Mary Stowell Falmouth

Growing comfortable in a thick skin By Steve Mistler Of all the things I collected at The Forecaster, my favorite is a letter in which attorney F. Lee Bailey essentially calls me a liar. Bailey, of course, is a pretty big deal. For a time, one local newspaper had taken to writing “internationally famous” before his name, as if celebrity that crosses oceans is a metric for higher credibility (somewhere, probably in Germany, David Hasselhoff nods in agreement). As some readers know, Bailey was decidedly less exalted in The Forecaster. His pet project, the expansion of Oxford Aviation at Brunswick Naval Air Station, saw significant scrutiny in these pages. In February, after more than a dozen reports on Oxford, Bailey and the company abandoned the project. Oxford retreated quietly and eventually fired half its workforce in a dispute with Oxford County. Bailey went scorched earth. He wrote a letter to the agency redeveloping BNAS, blaming the aborted deal on two town councilors who had the audacity to publicly question the proposal. He specifically identified me, the councilors’ “willing chronicler,” for printing their “truculent offensive” statements in a “deliberately negative” article. Contrary to what I’d written, Bailey claimed I never called him for comment. Bailey didn’t send me the letter – just like he didn’t return phone calls – but I eventually obtained a copy and hung it in my cubicle. The letter stands as a reminder, a teachable moment – although probably not the lesson of capitulation Bailey intended. It wasn’t the first time I’d faced a subject who tried to throw his weight around. In 2000, I had a run-in with a Major League Baseball player during spring training. I was stringing for a paper in Florida, which wanted a profile about Rick Ankiel, a local kid who was pitching for the St. Louis Cardinals. Ankiel’s talents were indisputable, but he had control problems. During a locker room interview at the club’s training facility in Jupiter, Fla., I nervously asked Ankiel if his occasional wildness made him reluctant to pitch inside to hitters. Ankiel, annoyed by the entire interview, seethed. “What did you just (expletive) ask me?” he asked, rising from his seat. I started to repeat the question, but stopped halfway. Ankiel looked like he was going to rip my arms off. “You think I’m afraid to (expletive) pitch inside?” Ankiel scanned the locker room for reinforcements. He found Darryl Kile, pitcher, elder statesman. “Kile, did you just hear this (expletive) say he thinks I’m afraid to pitch inside?” “(Expletive) reporters,” Kile spat. “They don’t know (expletive).” Later, in the 2000 playoffs, Ankiel’s pitching career unraveled. He threw five wild pitches and four walks in a single inning. He was never the same.

Reporter’s notebook After several failed comeback attempts, he was converted to an outfielder. I used to brag about my Ankiel encounter. Fearless reporter dismantles Mistler alpha-male athlete, or so the story went. But truthfully, I was scared, and not just because Ankiel could have pummeled me while Kile sat there eating a sandwich. It can be a difficult, lonely business questioning powerful people. For many reporters, upsetting even marginally influential people is terrifying. I was no different. But at some point came the realization that deference to power means exchanging deepened servitude for the mirage of access. Readers don’t benefit. Neither does integrity. Since joining The Forecaster in 2004, I’ve become more comfortable with the idea that some people are going to dislike what I write. During the Oxford Aviation saga, people would often joke that Bailey had dispatched mustard-stained private investigators to follow me. I laughed – but made sure to check the rear-view mirror. Maintaining skepticism often feels like tight-roping over the black hole of cynicism; at times, I’ve slipped. I can also be suspicious of compliments. Staying on high alert for motive means keeping would-be friends at a distance.

But the payoff is usually worth the sacrifice. It’s incredibly gratifying when readers say they trust and value your work. I thought of all this last week, while cleaning out my desk at The Forecaster. I’ve taken a position covering the Statehouse for the Sun Journal in Lewiston. While considering the job, I thought of a scene from the movie “L.A. Confidential,” when a young cop angling for a detective position is instead advised by a veteran to climb the management ladder.

“You have an eye for human weakness, but not the stomach,” the veteran says. There are few better arenas to witness human folly than politics. I have an eye for it. We’ll see about the stomach. As for The Forecaster, I’m grateful that I had a chance work here. So grateful, that I left the Bailey letter hanging in my Falmouth cubicle. But I made copies. Steve Mistler’s last day at The Forecaster was Aug. 26. He can be reached at smistler@sunjournal.com.

Portland shouldn’t dilute the right to vote Last year, state Sen. Justin Alfond, D-Portland, sponsored LD 1195, an act to allow non-citizen residents to vote in municipal elections. Under the bill a municipality could “provide by ordinance for a person residing within its borders who is not a citizen of the United States to vote in a municipal election.”

Short

Alfond explained that during his campaign he met people who were unable to vote for him because they were not citizens of the United States. He sponsored the bill to be inclusive, to give more people a voice and to give foreigners an incentive to become citizens so that they can vote in national elections as well as in local ones.

Relief

stitution.) Others were concerned that expanding voting rights might not be legal. At its March 11 meeting, the commission voted 7-5 against a motion “that non-citizen, legal residents of Portland be allowed to vote in municipal elections.” The minority argued that allowing non-citizens to vote would make for a more representative, inclusive, engaged and democratic city. The Maine Chapter of the League of Young Voters, which Alfond helped launch, picked up the ball and circulated a petition to get the question on the November ballot. League activists described the effort as “quite simply an issue of taxation without representation,” and the opportunity for Portland to be the “anti-Arizona.” On Aug. 23, the City Council approved for inclusion on the November ballot the League’s citizen-initiated charter amendment to allow “legal immigrants who are residents of Portland and 18 years old or older ... to register to vote and vote in municipal elections.”

A majority of the Legal and Veterans Affairs ComHalsey Frank mittee recommended that the act ought not to pass, and on May 28, 2009, the House and Senate accepted that recommendation. On July 2, the Portland City Charter Commission held its first public hearing. At least two members of the pubic urged that the commission recommend changing the City Charter to expand voting rights for immigrants. The commission debated non-citizen voting at its Feb. 25 meeting. Some commissioners were concerned about limiting the vote to U.S. citizens because of how difficult it is to become a citizen. (The requirements include the ability to read, write and speak ordinary English; a basic understanding of the fundamentals of U.S. history and government; good moral character and the willingness to support and defend the United States and the Con-

The city’s corporation counsel opined that the proposal was an “amendment,” not a “revision” requiring Charter Commission review, because it did not alter the “fundamental structure” of the municipal government. He also opined that the amendment was not prohibited by the U.S. Constitution, the Maine Constitution or general laws. The U.S. Constitution does not expressly require that people be U.S. citizens in order to vote in federal elections. It makes eligibility to vote a matter for the individual states to regulate, subject to certain limitations. Maine’s Constitution provides that U.S. citizens who are at least 18 years old and reside in Maine may vote for governor, senator and representative in the town where they reside. It does not explicitly address eligibility to vote in municipal elections. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2006-2008

American Community Survey Official Estimates, Portland has a population of nearly 63,600. More than 52,000, or 75.5 percent, are 18 years or older. Nearly 6,200 or 12.5 percent, are foreign-born. The survey does not identify how many of those are naturalized American citizens. (The 2000 data indicated nearly 4,900 foreign-born, of whom more than 3,200, or about 66 percent, were not citizens.)

Generally speaking, you have to belong to an organization in order to vote for its leadership and have a say in how it is run. Criteria for membership vary according to the organization, but generally they bear some relation to the nature and purpose of the organization and they ensure a certain amount of commitment to it. That way both the organization and the member benefit from their association.

America is a big, diverse, contentious country. There are times when it seems that we Americans don’t have a lot in common, that there isn’t much that unites us. We don’t all belong to one ethnic group. We come from different national origins. We don’t all speak the same language. We don’t share the same religion. We don’t have a lot of common history. We have different political views.

What we do share is a special form of government. The elemental feature of that form of government is the vote. It defines who we are as a people and distinguishes us from much of the rest of the world. It enables us to peacefully change our leadership. To have a voice in making the laws that prescribe what our government expects from us and what it provides for us.

It is worth a few requirements, including citizenship. Halsey Frank is a Portland resident, attorney and former chairman of the Republican City Committee.

Wind series unfair to task force

I write to express my disappointment regarding a series of articles authored by Naomi Schalit of the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting that did not accurately represent the efforts of the Governor’s Wind Power Task Force. Gov. Baldacci established the task force with very general goals, recognizing that Maine’s regulations concerning wind power projects were outdated and in need of review. He brought together a diverse group of individuals, including members who had recently opposed the Redington Wind Project. There were robust discussions, significant public input and an open process guided by a neutral facilitator. After a year of work, the task force developed recommendations that the governor presented as legislation, which was unanimously adopted by the full Legislature. There was nothing unusual about how the task force went about its work. It brought together different views, sought input, invited expert comment and worked for agreement. Schalit wrote that the governor made “the unusual move” of sending me to urge task force members to issue a set of consensus recommendations. In fact, that is a normal move and was suggested by the task force chairman and the facilitator as a helpful tool to encourage members to work through tough issues. I speak out because the articles convey an impression that there is something illegitimate about the task force and its work. That impression is unfair and does a serious disservice to the diligent and good-faith efforts by all involved to develop a path forward for both wind energy and environmental stewardship in Maine. Karin Tilberg, senior policy adviser Office of Gov. John E. Baldacci Augusta

Wrestling with religious tolerance Polite people don’t talk publicly about sex, money or religion. That’s what I was brought up to believe, so I guess I’m not a very polite person. I was also brought up to be tolerant of different religious beliefs. I do my best, but I’m not perfect. And I don’t regard being critical as the same thing as being intolerant. Currently, the United States is in the midst of an anti-Muslim hysteria The Universal brought on by the prospect of a mosque being built a few blocks from Ground Zero in New York City. To blame all Muslims for the crimes of a few Islamic extremists strikes me as bigoted and irrational. It’s like blaming all Christians for the hateful actions of a few misguided fundamentalists – killing abortion doctors Edgar Allen Beem in the name of Right to Life, say, or picketing the funerals of veterans because they oppose gays in the military. God knows there have been a lot of atrocities perpetrated in the name of religion. When I read about the barbaric stoning deaths of adulterers in places such as Afghanistan, Iran and Somalia, it’s hard to see through my outrage to the fact that Taliban thugs are not the true face of Islam. And I am reminded, too, that there are passages in the Bible that prescribe just such barbarism for infidelity and homosexuality. In order to follow the Bible to the letter, one would have be to the Christian equivalent of the Taliban, which is why I have so little tolerance for Christians who selectively cite the Bible as the source authority for their opposition to gay marriage. We used to do a pretty good job in this country separating church and state, but these days conservative Christians insist that their religious beliefs should be the law of the land. Surely, I am not alone in finding it hypocritical that right-wing rabble-rouser Glenn Beck, whose own Mormon

Notebook

beliefs are hardly mainstream Christianity, should be leading an evangelical movement and questioning President Obama’s Christianity. As long as the government doesn’t tell them how to worship, they shouldn’t expect to tell the rest of us how to live, which is what the Catholic Church in Maine did when it led the repeal of marriage equity. I’ve had a couple of readers accuse me of being anti-Catholic because I have criticized the Catholic Church for its stand against gay marriage and because I have suggested that a celibate, all-male priesthood is inherently unhealthy, contributing to the epidemic of sexual abuse. I grew up in predominantly Catholic communities, have a lot of Catholic friends, and, in general, share the Christian theology of the Catholic Church. But, again, being critical of certain stands and practices doesn’t strike me as the same thing as being intolerant of their religious beliefs. It’s difficult for someone like myself, who believes in gender equality, to be tolerant of a religion, be it Catholicism or Islam, that treats women as subservient. But as long as they don’t try to impose their sectarian sexism on society at large, I figure it’s none of my business. I wouldn’t support a law that told the Catholic Church it had to ordain women. So I don’t expect the Catholic Church to support laws that tell non-Catholics who can marry and who can terminate an unwanted pregnancy. Still, God’s law, whether in the form of the Bible or Sharia, seems to be coming into increasing conflict with human law as the line between the sacred and the secular gets erased by theocrats. As long as the moral teachings of a religion do not violate civil or criminal law, as stoning adulterers to death does, we must tolerate their enforcement on willing believers. And when it comes to where Muslims can build mosques, we must treat them the same way we would treat where Christians can build churches or Jews can build synagogues. To do otherwise would be unfair and un-American. To the degree that Americans sacrifice the fundamental principle of freedom of religion, the jihadists win.

Simmonds La Course, 86 YARMOUTH — Mildred B. “Sandy” Simmonds La Course, 86, died July 31 at home after a brief illness. On May 28, 1924, she was born in Bradley to Edwin and Mina Mudgett. As a young child, she and her siblings were placed in an orphanage and later grew up in a foster family in Winterport, where she attended local schools. From 1946 to 1974 she was married to Roy Simmonds, and from 1974 to 2006, she was married to Roland La Course . A devoted mother and homemaker, she was immensely proud of her children and loved all of them dearly. When her children were grown, she pursued work outside the home. Her love of caregiving led her to begin working as a nursing assistant at National Medical Care and later at Portland City Hospital. After taking an early retirement, she and Roland traveled the country extensively in their R.V., and enjoyed winters in Naples, Fla. A talented dancer with a lovely singing voice, her greatest joy was planting her beautiful flower gardens and tending them daily. She and her daughter Sandra had a special bond, and spent endless amounts of time together, shopping, eating out, or going for a ride. Her loving spirit, kindness, wisdom and selfless devotion will be remembered by all who knew and loved her. She is survived by her five children, Sandra Simmonds of Yarmouth, who was her constant companion and caregiver, Sharon and husband Edward Libby of Scarborough, Roy Simmonds III of Ray-

Eugene B. Parker, 84 FALMOUTH — Eugene B. Parker, 84, died Aug. 13 at home with his wife Tina by his side.

The Forecaster’s 2010 Fall Sports Preview Profiles by Michael Hoffer After the epic summer we’ve enjoyed, the prospect of the days growing shorter and the temperature plummeting might leave a lot to be desired, but one thing that will warm our hearts is the return of high school athletics.

A new school year is upon us and the 2010 fall sports season promises to be triumphant and exhilarating. Whether you cheer for Falmouth, Freeport, Greely, North Yarmouth Academy or Yarmouth, there will be no shortage of thrills on the gridiron, pitch, fields, trails

courts and courses in the weeks to come. It’s time for the fun to begin anew! (Ed. Note: For our traditional capsule previews of every varsity team at each school in our coverage area, please visit theforecaster.net and click on sports)

Falmouth, Yarmouth boys’ soccer lead the way again Don’t write off Freeport, Greely or NYA For the past decade, one of two local boys’ soccer teams has owned the Class B championship. In that span, Falmouth has won it all on seven occasions, while Yarmouth has brought home the Gold Ball the other three times. It’s a pretty safe bet that streak will be extended to 11 in 2010, but as the new season begins, it’s unclear which powerhouse will be left standing on Nov. 6. Falmouth won it all a year ago with a 16-0-2 mark (blemished only by two regular season ties with Yarmouth), beating Ellsworth 3-0 in the state final. This year’s squad might not be quite as explosive, after graduating

three first-team league all-stars, including 2008 and 2009 Fall Male Athlete of the Year Gabe Hoffman-Johnson, but is titleworthy yet again. This year, the offense features a heavy dose of seniors Michael Bloom and Sam White, both of whom were second-team all-stars a year ago. They’ll get help scoring from seniors Joe Barns, Andy Murry and Brandon Tuttle and sophomore J.P. White. Falmouth’s defense tends to be overrated, although it is often the backbone of championship teams. This year, seniors Nick Bachman, Johnny Goodrich and Brendan McDonnell hold down the fort in front of senior Ben Goffin, who returns in goal. As always, the Yachtsmen will be tested in the regular season, but figure to fill the net with regularity

and win just about every time out. While the are some question marks this fall, by late-October and November, the Yachtsmen figure to be in position to answer them. If the team develops as hoped, yet another Gold Ball will be seeking space in the overcrowded Falmouth trophy case. “We have a lot of strength down the middle,” said longtime coach Dave Halligan, entering his 24th season. “We have good younger players. Now, it’s a matter of figuring out who’s playing where. We’re a different team. We lost a lot. I think balance will be one of our assets. It should be a good season.” The Yachtsmen open at home Friday versus Fryeburg. Yarmouth upset Falmouth in the 2008 regional final en route to the championship, but couldn’t

repeat a year ago, finishing 13-1-3 after falling 3-0 to the Yachtsmen in the Western B Final. If all goes well in 2010, the Clippers will be right back on top. Offensively, senior Luke Pierce leads the way. He returns for his

fourth varsity season and already has several clutch goals to his credit. Last year, he scored 17 times and figures to be in the mix on many tallies this autumn. Junior Sam Torres will move

Greely girls’ soccer looks to finish the job Other local schools will be heard from

Greely junior Audrey Parolin figures to be in the middle of the action all season as the Rangers aim to be the best team in Class A.

As always, some of the best girls’ soccer teams in the state will reside right here in Forecaster Country in 2010. Whether you follow Class A, B or C, there’s a good chance a local team will be battling for a championship in November. In Western A, the Greely Rangers are coming off a stellar 12-2-2 campaign in 2009, which ended with an agonizing and controversial 2-1 semifinal round loss at eventual regional champion Thornton Academy. This year’s squad might not be as strong on paper, but will be heard from. Up top, the Rangers have as many scoring threats as anyone in senior Kelly Burrell, junior Audrey Parolin and sophomore Sammi Toorish, who had a dazzling freshman season. Senior

midfielder Maggie Johnson and junior midfielders Sara Schad and Libby Thomas will also be difficult to contain. Sophomore Holly Rand and senior Alicia Rost anchor the defense, along with new senior Ali Waterman. Jamie Moody will be missed in goal, but junior Lindsay Arsenault and sophomore Caton Beaulieu will seek to step in and hold the fort. As always, Greely has a challenging schedule and it’s likely the Rangers won’t boast as impressive a win-loss mark in 2010. Regardless, they will be a very tough out come playoff time. Good luck holding this offensive weaponry in check. If the defense and goalkeeping follow suit, Greely will be capable of beating anyone. “Our preseason has been great and we had a good summer,” said third-year coach Michael Kennedy. “We’re very young. It’s a good core group. We can score

goals, but Jamie’s 11 shutouts will be hard to replace. Our expectations are to improve and get some experience and hopefully be there at the end.” The Rangers open at home versus Wells Tuesday, Sept. 7. Two local teams have a great shot at the Western B title. Falmouth won the 2008 championship, but fell short a year ago, losing 2-0 at York in the Western B Final to wind up 11-2-4. This year, the Yachtsmen are primed to get back to the top. Once again, there is an abundance of talent on the roster as the fivetime state champion Maine Coast United premier team is wellrepresented. Seniors Rachel Bauer, Elizabeth Carew, Abby Cavalero, Jess DiPhillippo, Elizabeth Estabrook and Allie Lycan have all taken part on MCU and would like to win a

Falmouth, Yarmouth football may be on the brink of greatness

Senior Nate Pingitore and the Yarmouth football team stole headlines in 2009, reaching the Western C Final. This year, the Clippers aim to do it again.

Greely, Freeport also excited for new season

Another high school football season is upon us and there will be plenty of excitement in Forecaster Country as all four local varsity programs look to contend, two with a great shot at making the playoffs and competing into November. In Western C, Yarmouth is coming off a season for the memory banks, which saw it win its final six regular season games before holding off established contenders Livermore Falls and Old Orchard Beach in a pair of scintillating playoff wins. The fun ended with a 41-7 loss at Dirigo in the regional final (the Clippers wound up 8-3), but it’s clear this program arrived faster than expected. After graduating several key contributors, including 2009 Fall Male Athlete of the Year Eric Estabrook, Yarmouth has to prove that it can quickly rebuild and not be a one-year wonder. Replacing Estabrook under center will

be freshman Brady Neujahr. He is highly touted, although he lacks his predecessor’s experience and leadership. That will come. Neujahr can rely on established senior backs Asa Arden and Nate Pingitore (the backup QB), as well as new junior Anders Overhaug and sophomore Caleb Uhl to move the chains. Senior Nick Proscia (a reigning Campbell Conference all-star) will open holes from his fullback spot. Yarmouth probably won’t throw much, but when it does, senior Tommy O’Toole will be a weapon. On the line, junior Jon Held and senior Jack Watterson will set the tone. Defensively, if the Clippers can lower the amount of points they surrendered in 2009 (32 per contest in the playoffs), the team will be that much stronger. The defensive line boasts Watterson. The linebacking corps features Held, Pingitore and Proscia. In the secondary, Arden, O’Toole, Overhaug and Uhl will all see time. Last year, Yarmouth was able to overcome an 0-2 start, but this year’s team would like to avoid a similarly sluggish beginning, making Friday’s opener at Old Orchard Beach critical. The second game is at consensus favorite Oak Hill. The Clippers have the personnel to once again do great things. If this year’s squad can match the hunger of 2009, a return to the postseason is a distinct possibility. “We can throw the ball,” said fourth-year coach Jim Hartman, our Coach of the Year in 2009. “We have a lot of running backs. I think we’ll be much better and faster on defense. We worked hard in the offseason on defensive back coverages. I think the kids have responded. We’re more mature. It will come down to heart. We have players who want to step up. We’ll have some pleasant surprises.” Freeport went 1-7 in its initial varsity season in Western C. Year two won’t be any easier, but many of the players have experience.

Can Greely volleyball make it eight straight? Falmouth, Yarmouth stand in the way Last year, the Greely volleyball juggernaut finally got some company at the top, but when the dust settled, the Rangers were state champions for a seventh straight year. While Greely got a scare from upstart Falmouth in the inaugural Class A state match, it prevailed 3-0 to wind up 15-1. The Rangers now shoot for an eighth straight title and have to once again be considered the favorite even if graduation hit the program hard. First-team all-stars Karlee Biskup, Erin Cadigan (the school’s 2009 Fall Female Athlete of the year) and Michaela Campbell are gone, but a new batch of players will do its best to keep Greely at the top. Junior Maggie Bradley (an outside hitter) was a second-team league all-star in 2009. She could be the latest in a long line of Rangers’ standouts. Senior

Football from previous page of the Year Miguel Beckles. Sophomore Dan Burke and senior Matt MacMillan will see plenty of carries, as will new junior Luke Lamogna and sophomore Cory Aldecoa, a transfer from Traip Academy. Hart anchors the line. On defense, Hart and Lamogna will play the line. Burke, Knighton and Purdy are top linebackers. Aldecoa and MacMillan are top members of the secondary. Freeport will seek to control the ball as much as possible and force turnovers. The Falcons still have a way to go to be playoff contenders, but a victory or two would go a long way toward improving the program. “We’re still young this year,” said secondyear coach Rob Grover. “Our numbers are growing. We want to be more competitive. We’re trying to get size on the line. We have good overall team speed.” Freeport opens at home Saturday against defending state champion Dirigo. In Western B, Falmouth is viewed as a team that might not only make the playoffs, but perhaps go deep. The Yachtsmen finished just out of the postseason in 2009 with a 5-4 mark, but have a lot to be excited about this autumn.

Sara Warnock looks to bounce back from injury with a strong season at her middle hitter spot. Senior Michelle Poulin is another middle hitter of note. Junior Emily Sampson moves from libero to outside hitter. She’s a superb passer. Newcomers to watch include senior Katherine Harrington (setter), juniors Elizabeth Bouchard (libero), Catherine Fellows (middle hitter) and Ellie Weichert (outside hitter) and sophomores Kristen Atwood (outside hitter), Dani Cimino (setter), Haleigh Roach (setter) and Katie Ventre (outside hitter). Ninth-year coach Kelvin Hasch is as good as anyone in molding a team. He has more of a challenge this year after all the departures, but there is still plenty of raw talent on the roster. It’s possible Greely might stumble a time or two in the regular season, but by October, the Rangers will likely be the team to beat once again and No. 8 won’t be nearly enough. “We’re very young this year with a lot

of players filling new roles on the team,” Hasch said. “Once we get used to playing together, we should see improvement and start moving toward the top. All the setters are learning how to run a team.” Greely opens at home Friday night when Biddeford comes calling. Falmouth defeated Greely in the regular season last year, but the state match loss left the Yachtsmen 14-2 and runners-up. While a strong core of seniors departed (including Fall Female Athlete of the Year Emma Wilberg, Carolyn Smith and Alyssa Yeung), there is still plenty of talent in reserve. Seniors Alana Becker (outside hitter) and Kate Sparks (opposite) were all-stars last autumn and will pace this year’s team. They’re joined by senior veterans Sarah Collmus (setter), Laura Fay (middle), Jackie Keroack (middle) and Lexi Pauls (outside hitter). That’s just the beginning. Eight new continued page 19

On offense, senior Zach Alexander returns for a second season under center and should be much more comfortable calling the signals. He’s capable of throwing and running with equal effectiveness. Junior Matt Kingry will also see some time at QB and is a runner worth watching. Senior Caleb Bowden was a Campbell Conference all-star in 2009. He’ll get a lot of carries. New sophomore Jacob Buhelt, a speedster, will also handle the ball. Through the air, junior Jack Cooleen, an honorable mention all-star last year, seniors David Goodrich and Greg Oulton and juniors Ryan MacDonald and Aaron Rogers will make life challenging for opposing secondaries. There are plenty of strong players on the line, a group which includes juniors Sam Bruni and Will Ryan and seniors Andrew Edwards, Jack Horton (an honorable mention all-star last year), Storm McGovern and new junior Scott Jensen, a 6-foot-4 talent. The Yachtsmen project to be just as formidable on the defensive side. On the line, Edwards, Horton, Jensen, Oulton and Ryan will hold down the fort. The linebacking corps includes Alexander, Bowden, Bruni, McDonald and McGovern. The secondary has Buhelt, Cooleen, Goodrich, Kingry and Rogers. After Cape Elizabeth was hard hit by

graduation and with Mountain Valley not in a vintage period, Falmouth has to like its chances to match up with those traditional powers, as well as Wells and York (where it opens Friday night). If the Yachtsmen can stay healthy and hungry, they could set a new standard for the program. This team will be a lot of fun to follow in its quest for greatness. “Our line could be our strength and we have athletes,” said fourth-year coach John Fitzsimmons. “There’s wonderful chemistry to this team. The work ethic could not be better. We have a lot of returning players who worked hard in the offseason. It’s the most athletic team we’ve ever put on the field. We’re balanced running and passing. Collectively, we’re focused. The kids want a Gold Ball.” Greely isn’t mentioned among the Western B elite, but the Rangers are capable of making some noise in 2010. Coming off a 2-7 campaign, the roster is littered with strong athletes and the team should improve dramatically between now and the end of the year. On offense, senior Justin Moore is a threat with his speed and athleticism from the quarterback position. Junior Michael Leeman and seniors Alex Parenteau and Ethan Wyman will also handle the ball. Sophomore Svenn Jacobson is an up-and-

coming star. Greely won’t throw much, but should move the ball efficiently on the ground. The line features seniors Michael Burgess, Jon Higgins (a league all-star last year) and Dana Rogers. Defensively, the Rangers need to step it up, especially against the premier teams in the league, if they want to compete for a playoff spot. The line includes Burgess, Parenteau and Rogers. The linebacking corps features Higgins, Jacobson and Wyman. Leeman and Moore play in the secondary. While Greely might struggle with the top teams in Western B, it will be able to compete with and beat several of the foes on the schedule. Look for an improvement in the win column and for the Rangers to position themselves as a contender in future seasons. “We have 13 returning lettermen,” said second-year coach David Higgins. “We’re senior-heavy. Much the same team as last year. I’d say we’re probably stronger defensively. Offensively, we’ve made significant improvement. I’m excited for the season to start. We consider ourselves to be a force to be reckoned with. I truly believe we’ll do just fine.” Greely opens at Wells Friday night.

NYA field hockey has unfinished business Other local squads thinking plaoyffs and beyond The 2010 season figures to be another good one for local field hockey squads. North Yarmouth Academy has excelled the past two seasons, winning the 2008 crown and absolutely dominating virtually all comers a year ago before dropping an agonizing 1-0 decision to Dexter in the Class C state final to wind up 17-1. This time around, NYA looks to return to the top. Junior Kylie Dalbec and senior Frances Leslie were first-team league all-stars in 2009 and will pace a dynamic offense. Junior Katherine Millett, new junior Sasha McLean and sophomore Hannah Hearn will also do their share of rattling the cage. Sophomores Jen Brown and Bailey Clock are also in the mix. Last year, the Panthers defensive players weren’t kept very busy, but with a strong schedule, they’ll have to be on their toes in 2010. Senior captains Emily Harrison and Renee Lamoreau lead that unit, along with junior Katie Cawley, new senior Sally LaPointe and junior transfer (from Falmouth) Megan Fortier. Junior Mariah Farrell, who saw time in the playoffs last year, is in goal. Games with perennial Western B powers York and Falmouth will ensure that the regular season is more meaningful than a year ago. NYA should be explosive once again

and has a great shot to post another stellar record. If this group stays healthy and hungry, a third straight trip to states isn’t out of the question. If the Panthers get back, they’ll settle for nothing short of the big trophy this time around. “The kids are really excited,” said sixth-year coach Julia Sterling. “It could be a better team than last year. Things didn’t work out at the end last year. The goal my girls gave me this year was to be the fastest team in the state. We’ll play together.” NYA opened at Sacopee Wednesday. Freeport also made the Western C playoffs a year ago, finishing 9-5-1 after a 7-0 quarterfinal round loss to Livermore Falls. This year, although inexperienced, the Falcons figure to remain in the hunt. The offense is led by juniors Abigail Mahoney and Katie Turner. The loss of two-time Fall Female Athlete of the Year Hannah Schuchert in goal won’t be easy to overcome, but senior Emily Daniel will look to step in and make an impression. She’s aided by junior back Kayla Thurlow. Freeport will have a hard time competing with two-time defending regional champion North Yarmouth Academy and the game against third-year coach Sara Dimick’s alma mater Greely (who she led to the 2003 Class B title) won’t be easy, but the balance of the schedule is manageable. If this young squad develops as hoped, it will win its share of games. By October, the Falcons should be formidable. “We only have one senior, so we are a very young team,” Dimick said. “Our junior class has taken on leadership roles on the team along with our one senior. My girls have very positive attitudes and seem to really enjoy playing the sport. They have worked very hard this preseason and I look forward to seeing PORTLAND YOGA STUDIO

what they have to bring in our upcoming season.” The Falcons hosted Traip in their opener Wednesday. In Western B, Falmouth should once again finish near the top. In 2009, the Yachtsmen wound up 10-5-1 after a 2-1 loss to eventual regional champion York in the semifinals. Falmouth has advanced to the semifinals or beyond in four of the past six seasons, but were hard hit by graduation, losing all-stars Amber Aaskov, Jacki Aaskov, Nicole Foley and Emma Sipperly. The cupboard is far from bare, however, and the Yachtsmen should remain a factor. Seniors Stephanie Gramse and Courtney Proctor will be relied upon the lead the offense until others emerge. Junior Catherine Hebson will be heard from all over the field from her midfield position. Senior Kelsey Freedman returns in goal, which gives Falmouth a big edge over most of its foes. Freshman Hayley Winslow could be an impact player at midfield or defense. While Falmouth doesn’t boast the household names of the past few seasons, it can’t be overlooked. There are several Western B playoff spots to be had and there’s no reason to think the Yachtsmen won’t extend their postseason streak to 15 years. If some newcomers develop as hoped, Falmouth won’t only make the playoffs, it will be in the hunt for a regional crown. “We have a very new team this year,” said coach Robin Haley, who enters her 16th year. “We only have four starters back and only have three seniors. We’re inexperienced at the varsity level, but we’ll run with it. The playoffs are always a goal. That would be awesome.” The Yachtsmen opened Wednesday at home against Wells. Greely is another perennial contender that will be heard from in 2010. Last year, the Rangers wound up 8-7

after falling 2-0 to Maranacook in the quarterfinals. Fourth-year coach Kristina Prescott, who is eight months pregnant, will miss part of the season, but has help from Callie Chase, mother of former Rangers standouts Amanda and Julia, and junior varsity coach Becki Belmore. On the field, Greely has an abundance of returning talent and a plethora of newcomers who could step right in and shine. On offense, junior Ceci Hodgkins has been creating highlights since her freshman year. She’ll look to team with senior Jackie Andrews, juniors Emily Curato and Eliza Porter and new sophomore Jessica Wilson to pace the offense. Seniors Maggie Bower and Hannah McCord will vie for time at the goalie position. New juniors Meaghan Labbe, Julia Maine and Maggie Norton and sophomore Kaley Sawyer also figure into the equation. The Rangers have enjoyed winning records and playoff berths every year since 1997. This year’s squad has all the pieces in place to not only continue those trends, but to also enjoy a longer playoff run. “’We’re always a strong team and we are looking to capitalize on that this year,” Prescott said. Greely’s first outing is Saturday at Falmouth. Yarmouth went 0-14 in 2009, but should be vastly improved this year. Last fall’s record was a bit deceiving. What did the team in was its lack of offense: Just six goals in 14 games. As a result, Yarmouth lost by one or two goals in half of its outings, meaning with a little more scoring punch, some wins would have occurred. This year, the Clippers look to improve — perhaps dramatically. Junior Catie O’Toole and senior Lindsey Purpura lead the offense, which should be much more productive. Seniors Sarabeth Gabrielson, Katie O’Donnell and Carly Westerfield provide back line defense in front of senior Cassidy

Volleyball from page 17 juniors bring promise and depth, suggesting the Yachtsmen won’t fall out of contention anytime soon. Falmouth should only improve as the year progresses. There are several strong teams in Class A, but the Yachtsmen will continue to measure themselves by how they fare against Greely. Don’t think for a minute this program isn’t smarting over the state match loss, where the first two sets could have gone either way. There’s a very good chance Falmouth could make it back to the big stage. It wouldn’t be a big surprise if the Yachtsmen finish the job. They’re among the elite now. “Our numbers are good this year. We have 43 girls in the program with some very talented sophomores and freshmen coming up and picking up the game quickly,” said fourth-year coach Gary Powers. “I ‘m looking for the underclassmen to step up and fill the voids left by the graduating seniors. I think we will get stronger as the season goes on and hope to position ourselves to make a run in the state tournament. If we can fill some spots, we should be competitive and surprise some teams.” Falmouth’s first match is Friday at Cony. Yarmouth made great strides in 2009 and made the playoffs before losing 3-1 to Biddeford in the quarterfinals to wind up 11-4. This time around, the Clippers should once again be competitive and in the hunt for a playoff spot. While the loss of defensive standout and 2009 Fall Female Athlete of the Year Kate Darrell will hurt, senior Mary Sansone is primed to take over that spot and make an impact. Senior Abbie Hutchinson is a returning league all-star at the setter position. She’s a four-year starter and could be one of the premier players in the area. She led Yarmouth in assists, aces and points off serve a year ago.

“With only four returning players from last year, we’ll be a very young team,” said fourth-year coach Jim Senecal. “We’re going to have to rely on the very quick development of some of our underclassmen to compete with the top teams again this year. Because of our success in 2009, our schedule has been strengthened, which makes this year even more of a challenge. “I’m still very optimistic about our chances to return to the playoffs. We’ve got a very talented core group of girls and our newcomers are improving every day. We may run into some bumps early, but as the season goes along, we hope to be the lower seeded team that nobody really wants to play come playoff time.”

Outside hitters include sophomore Grace Gilbert and junior Chelsea Mueller and senior Danielle Smith is a hitter as well. For NYA, it’s all about getting confidence early and perhaps a few wins under its belt.

Local golf teams appear title-worthy Four of five local golf teams made it to the state match a year ago and all signs point to continued dominance on the links in Forecaster Country. In Class A, Greely went 8-1 in 2009 and wound up fifth at the state match. This season, the Rangers are unique in that they have so many stellar girls. Junior Laura Grant is the reigning female state champion, shooting an 83 last year. Classmate Edith Aromando had an 88 and senior Meaghan Bickford shot a 91 in 2009. They’ll all make a run at individual glory and help create a very strong team. Sophomore Kyle Bickford projects to be the Rangers’ top individual (he shot an 85 at the Class A state match). Junior Chadd Crosson and sophomore Kyle McGathlin look to step in make some noise. Greely has a very challenging regular season schedule, but if it can qualify, will be capable of doing great things at states, both as a team and with its many talented individuals. “We graduated four of our top five,” said second-year coach Brian Bickford. “We’re going young this year. A realistic goal is to be competitive in-conference and try to qualify for states. I have a couple kids who can make an individual run. We have a strong girls’ contingent. We have a deep squad, but we’re young. We have a lot of promise.” The Rangers hosted Falmouth in the opener Wednesday.

Speaking of the Yachtsmen, they went 4-5 in the regular season a year ago, but qualified for states, where they came in second. It seems like every other year, Falmouth wins the state title, so in that light, the Yachtsmen could be due for greatness in October. Returning top scorers from last year include Senior Connor Burfeind (77 at the team state meet, 79 at the individual championships and a league all-star), junior Will Bucklin (82 at team states, 83 at individuals), junior Nick Franco (84 at states) and senior Taylor Dimick (85 at states). Senior Alex Groat and juniors Matt Packard and Nick Spencer also boast experience. As always, there will newcomers fighting to get into the rotation, but this squad will go as far as its veterans take it. It’s quite likely that Falmouth will tread water in the regular season, like last year, but as is usually the case, the Yachtsmen should peak for October. If this squad is at its best when the stakes are highest, Falmouth will have a great shot to bring home some more hardware. “We’re in the most competitive bracket in Maine,” said longtime coach Spike Herrick, now in his 20th season. “Cape, Yarmouth and York all have solid teams. Our entire team is returning, so expectations are high, but anything can happen. We hope to be at states and give it our best shot.” Yarmouth was 5-4 in the regular season

before finishing a solid third at states. The Clippers have enjoyed a golf resurgence of late, capped by last year’s stirring finish at states. This year’s squad returns junior Ian Marr (85 at states and a WMC all-star) and senior Joe King (87). Sophomore Red DeSmith and new junior Ethan Andrews round out a solid top four. Davis Brown, Cal Cooper, Matt Guiney, Matt Murphy and Dylan Town are also seeking to be in the mix. The Clippers face some of the best teams in the state in the regular season, but they’re not concerned with boasting a gaudy record. All eyes will be on the qualifier where Yarmouth hopes to make it to states once again. If King and Marr show the way and get some help from some of the newer players, the Clippers could have a very happy ending. “We look to have a solid foundation to build on with our top four golfers, who will give us a chance to win every time we play,” said second-year coach Tom McDowell. “I’ve been impressed with the number of golfers who have shown improvement since last year. Our goal is to be competitive in every match this season to prepare us for the state tournament qualifier. “From a coaching perspective, this is an excellent group of kids to work with. Solid golf skills, excellent sportsmanship and they have fun.” Yarmouth played its first match Wednesday at Poland.

Freeport was 2-8 last year, with no postseason. This season, the Falcons have their work cut out, but should have their moments. A pair of sophomores lead the way in Nick Cartmell and Nick Tardif. Six freshmen also seek to make an impact. Look for the Falcons to show steady improvement. This year’s experience should help Freeport be more of a factor in the seasons to come. “We come in with a young team, six new freshmen and four returners from last year,” said sixth-year coach Jason Lemont. “We will be building and learning as we go through the season. This year, I aim to have fun, teach the kids a lifelong sport and build for the future.” The Falcons hosted Wells in their first match Wednesday. In Class C, North Yarmouth Academy is coming off a 10-1 campaign and a third place showing at the state match. This time around, the Panthers figure to be the Tim Millett Show, but if some other players step up, a return to states is realistic. Millett, a senior, won the Class C individual crown a year ago, was a league all-star and earned NYA Fall Male Athlete of the Year honors. He shot a 71 to win the individual title, a week after posting a 76 at the team competition. NYA lost its other state match scorers to graduation and will hope that senior Finn

Local runners will dazzle this fall Forecaster Country is annually home to some of the best cross-country runners in the state. This time around, several individuals and teams are dreaming of going all the way. In Class B, the Greely boys are the threetime defending state champions and are looking to make it four in a row. Even though the Rangers graduated state meet scorers and premier standouts Logan Price (Greely’s 2009 Fall Male Athlete of the Year) and Mark McCauley (the school’s Winter and Spring Athlete of the Year), three other scorers return to set the pace. Senior Sam Johnston (ninth at states a year ago), junior Stefan Sandreuter (28th) and senior Connor Regan (29th) all played a major role on the 2009 state champion. Junior Izaak Emery also ran at states and despite finishing 38th, did not score. “The boys hope to stay in the top three in the region and be healthy at state meet time,” said coach David Dowling, now in his 14th year. Greely’s girls were 12th in Class B in 2009. Three scorers from last year’s state meet return. Leading the way is junior Melissa Jacques (32nd in 2009), who could be one of the fastest runners in the conference. Senior Dee Little (53rd) and junior Sarah Ezzio (60th) also earned valuable experience last November. Seniors Meaghan Crowley and Julia Isaacson are other veterans. Freshman Kirsten Sandreuter is highly touted and should immediately help the cause. “The girls hope to improve on last year’s finish at regionals and make it to the state meet,” Dowling said. Falmouth’s boys figure to give Greely its biggest scare. The Yachtsmen were third a year ago and are seeking their first title since 2002. They have plenty of firepower returning and several newcomers who will be household names in no time. Junior Tim Follo was sixth at last year’s state meet. Senior Johnny Lake (14th), juniors Conor McGrory (24th), Tom Edmonds (39th) and Henry Briggs (41st) also scored a year ago. All will seek to move up. Several other talents provide plenty of depth and promise. Falmouth is in great shape to not only be the best team in the ultra-competitive Western Maine Conference, but if all goes well, steal the thunder in late October. “The boys should be very strong,” said coach Jorma Kurry, who, along with cocoach Danny Paul, enters his seventh year. “We’re as deep as we’ve ever been. With most of our varsity back and training well this summer, we expect to challenge for the win at every meet we run. If we stay healthy and perform well at the big meets, we’ll be hard to beat. Falmouth’s girls were eighth last year, but the Yachtsmen are poised to do very well this time around. After five straight top 10 finishes, Falmouth is looking for its first championship since winning Class C in 2000. Returners include sophomore Meg Paolmbo (20th a year ago), sophomore Abby Payson (28th), junior Emily Rand (38th), senior Maggie Parrish (61st) and sophomore Molly Ryan (77th). As is the case with the boys’ team, the girls also have newcomers to watch. Don’t be surprised if

this is the best team the program has produced since moving up to Class B. “The girls graduated a lot, but should be very strong,” Kurry said. “They return far ahead of last year. Hopefully a strong base will help us stay healthy and we can race with the top teams.” Yarmouth’s boys qualified for states in 2009 and wound up eighth. The Clippers have a strong shot at getting back this autumn. Two Bens will battle for the No. 1 spot. Last year at states, senior Ben Nickerson came in 19th, while senior Ben Woodbury was 22nd. Sophomore Thomas Robichaud (56th) is another returning scorer. The Clippers will be in the mix against all but the elite conference foes and should be able to return to states for the fourth year in a row. “The boys’ team has a major regrouping challenge,” said longtime coach Bob Morse, entering his 30th year. He’s assisted by Chuck Thorp and Erin Lane. “The seniors will have to rule and the underclassmen will have to run like juniors for us to go to states. Senior leadership will be the key to our success. The seniors have set the bar and are there to help the underclassmen run fast.” Yarmouth’s girls didn’t make it to the state meet in 2009 after finishing seventh at regionals. Senior Chloe Sarapas is the top returner. She was 13th at last year’s regional meet and qualified for states as an

individual. Four sophomores who scored at regionals last year return to provide promise. Emma Pidden was 35th a year ago, Joss RichardsDaniels finished 41st, Sydney Sperber 43rd and Carolyn Macleod 55th. Senior Anne Ryan also took part at the regional meet and brings experience. Yarmouth should develop nicely in the weeks to come and certainly has the potential to make it to Belfast as a team. “The girls have a good core of runners returning,” Morse said. “They missed states the last two seasons and would really like to stay healthy, improve and make the trip as a complete team. The big question is will the underclassmen and rookies provide the

energy to produce a team that makes it to (states)?” In Class C, Freeport’s boys were runners-up a year ago and hope to make the jump to first. Returning scorers from last year’s state meet include senior Griffin Day (second), junior Taylor Saucier (20th), senior Max Jennings (26th), senior Bennett Wade (28th) and senior Miles Boucher (39th). The Falcons will be solid and have a great shot at winning the program’s first championship since 1994. “The boys are looking to perform very well in our conference as well as states,”

state championship trophy this November. Falmouth has plenty of offensive firepower, led by DiPhillippo and Lycan. Bauer and senior Jessie L’Heureux, along with new sophomore Cassie Darrow, will be difficult to contend with. The Yachtsmen will be solid defensively as Carew, Cavalero and seniors Caitlin Costello and Jamie Sabo (who will also see time at midfield), along with new juniors Cassidy Gaudette and Olivia Hoch make life miserable for the opposition in front of Estabrook (who had nine shutouts and a 0.59 goals against average in 2009), who is as steady a goalie as they come. Falmouth will get its share of challenges in the regular season and will seek to earn some revenge against York. It’s hard to imagine this squad not excelling from start to finish. Historically, the year after failing to win a title, the Yachtsmen get the job done. “We’re just putting the pieces together,” said second-year coach Jon Shardlow. “Hopefully we’ll have some momentum going into the season. We have to put a lineup together that’s able to play together consistently. It’s about teamwork. It should be a productive season.” The Yachtsmen start their season Friday at Fryeburg. If Falmouth isn’t the team to dethrone York this autumn, there’s a good chance that Yarmouth will. The Clippers have been eliminated by York three years running (including a 4-1 semifinal loss last year, which left Yarmouth 8-6-2), but might have its best shot at going all the way in several years. They have a solid core of successful, athletic seniors who would love nothing more than to lead to the program to its first championship since 2003. Senior Devin Simsarian projects as the offensive leader. She’s fast, tenacious and doesn’t shy away from big spots. Junior Jeanna Lowery and sophomore Tess Merrill will also do their share of scoring. The midfield features two of the best athletes around in seniors Becca Bell (a first-team all-star last year) and Danielle Torres (Spring Athlete of the Year from lacrosse), along with senior Courtney Barker. On defense, sophomore Megan Decker and senior Natalie Salmon (a first-team all-star in 2009) will give no quarter in front of senior Samantha Fochler, who returns. This team is strong on offense and defense and will hold its own against everyone. The schedule is full of formidable foes, as usual, but the Clippers, presuming they can stay healthy, will be up for the challenges. By year’s end, Yarmouth should be right there battling for the top spot. Perhaps, this will be the year the Clippers get some bounces and are able to vanquish their recent nemeses. “We have a lot of varsity returners,” said longtime coach Rich Smith, entering his 24th season. “More than I’ve had the last few years. We’ve very balanced. We’ll be as strong as we’ve been in awhile.”

September 2, 2010

Yarmouth opens at Freeport Saturday. Freeport was 2-11-1 in 2009, but should be much stronger this fall. With plenty of talent back, the Falcons certainly have a puncher’s chance. The top returner is senior Allyson Fuehrer, who was a league all-star a year ago. She’s one of the top defensive forces in the league. Junior Emily Martin will also protect classmate Abby Roney in goal. On offense, Freeport hopes to be more productive and if the goals come, wins will follow. Top scoring threats include seniors Molly Curry and Katee Poulin. Senior Kelly Edwards will be a factor all over the pitch. A pair of freshmen should soon become household names. Midfielders Ellie Bengsston and Brooke Heathco will step right in. While the Falcons still have a way to go to compete with the traditional powerhouses, there’s no reason why they can’t be in every game and earn several victories. It’s been five years since Freeport qualified for the playoffs and six seasons since the Falcons boasted a winning mark. Both droughts could come to an end if all goes well in the weeks to come. “We have a lot more girls than we’ve had in a long time,” said second-year coach Elayna Zachko. “We only lost one starter so we’re pretty much returning all our players. The girls have a lot of drive to win. We worked on changing our style last year and keeping it simple. Now, we’re working more on offense. Our defense is solid. We’re trying to see where the new players fit in. If we stay healthy and work well together, we’ll have a good season. We want to make the top teams nervous.” In Western C, North Yarmouth Academy went 11-3-1 a year ago, falling 2-1 to Waynflete in the quarterfinals. The Panthers are always in the hunt and should be strong again in 2010, even after the departure of standout Courtney Dumont. Junior Lauren Nawfel and senior Lily Wellenbach were all-stars a year ago. Senior Caroline Bowne returns in goal. There are several players on the roster who won a first-ever lacrosse championship back in June. That experience will help this team. NYA faces rival Waynflete twice and also has games with Cape Elizabeth and Yarmouth, but the Panthers should be in good shape with the rest of the schedule and by season’s end, will once again boast an impressive record. After being eliminated two straight postseasons by the Flyers, NYA would love to get a measure of revenge. If so, the Panthers have a great shot to get back to the pinnacle after a two-year absence. “The kids are working hard and are improving,” said second-year coach Charles Fischman. “We’re focused on being as prepared as we can be. Now that it’s my second year, they know more about me and I have a better sense of what they’re capable of. Players have a better sense of their roles. I’d like to believe that the team will be successful. It was a great experience last fall. It continues to be an exciting environment.” NYA opens at Traip Friday.

Boys soccer from page 15 up top and will be heard from. Junior Ryan Maguire, who was hurt much of 2009, has a left foot that is compared to former standout Johnny Murphy. Senior Campbell Belisle-Haley will move from forward to midfield, but can’t be overlooked. He’s a physical specimen that opponents will be wise to avoid. Junior Pau Melero, a Spanish exchange student, is in the mold of last year’s standouts Ebrahim Fazeli and Travis Merrill. Junior Josh Britton and senior Kyle Groves will bring strength and tenacity to the defense in front of junior Chris Knaub in goal, who was a field player in 2009, but has already emerged as one of the finest keepers around. Yarmouth will be a work in progress during the early part of the regular season as it fits new faces into new places. The Clippers might be a hair behind Falmouth on paper as the season begins, but by October, Yarmouth should be clicking on all cylinders. If the Clippers show steady improvement, stay healthy and channel last year’s disappointment into hunger this time around, they could find themselves back on top in November. “We’ve had a solid preseason and played some good teams,” said 14th-year coach Mike Hagerty. “We have a solid

www.theforecaster.net

returning group that has varsity experience. With Knaub solidifying the goal and our early Christmas present (Melero), our starting group should be every bit as good as last year when we went undefeated in the regular season. “The big question this year is our bench. Last year the main reason for our success was our depth. We do not have that depth this year yet, but I am optimistic that we can find the right pieces before long. “When we play our best we can compete with anyone in state, but like all high school teams we will strive for consistency. We hope to be in the top four for playoff seedings at the end of the season and then make a run in the playoffs. A run that takes us into November.” Yarmouth opens at Freeport Friday. Speaking of which, Freeport can’t be overlooked in Western B despite falling short of the playoffs last year with a 4-8-2 mark. The early end to the season was the first time the Falcons failed to qualify since 1997. That was certainly an aberration that figures to be rectified this autumn. The Falcons project to be steady all over the field. Starting in the back, sophomore Connor Dietrich and junior Josh Weirich will split time in goal and will play in the midfield when not between the pipes. Seniors Nate Pfeffer and Hans Pope (Freeport’s Spring Male Athlete of the Year from lacrosse) anchor what should

be a strong defense. The midfield features senior Ryan Farley (an all-star a year ago) and new sophomores Griff Breer and Parker Matheson, who could do his share of goal scoring. Juniors Jack Dawe and Evan Hench will attempt to tickle the twine as well. There are a lot of winnable games on the schedule. For the Falcons to truly announce they’re back, however, they’ll need to play well against the traditional powers that always dot their schedule. If Freeport develops as hoped, it will be a team that no one wants to reckon with in the playoffs. “We’ve had a very good preseason,” said 13-year coach Joe Heathco. “It’s a good group of kids. I don’t think we’re the most skilled team out there, but we have experience, good speed and size. I think we’re very athletic. It’s tough to beat the top schools in our conference, but we can compete. If we work hard, I really believe we’ll do well. Getting back to the playoffs is a goal.” In Western A, Greely will once again be in the title hunt. The Rangers finished 10-6 in 2009, falling 2-1 at Windham in the regional semifinals. Greely’s task in 2010 is similar to 2009: It needs to find a way to beat Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth and/or Yarmouth to ensure a playoff berth. The Rangers return their top scorer from last year in senior Jon Coyne (a second-team league all-star). Seniors John Downey, Brandon Pinette and Sean Ross will also look to score. On defense, seniors Chase Rochon, Ryan Rybka and Austin Spencer will look to limit the shots that goalies Liam Maker (a junior who saw plenty of time last postseason) and Elijah Leverett (a sophomore) will have to face.

young and inexperienced. It will depend on how well the seven returners develop. We need to win the ones we’re supposed to and hopefully get something out of the six games with Cape, Falmouth and Yarmouth. My guys will compete, play hard, have fun, get better every day and make our run.”

Greely is home with Gray-New Gloucester Friday in its first 2010 outing.

In Western C, North Yarmouth Academy is coming off a season which saw a surprising run to the regional final. The Panthers finished 8-7-1 after falling 2-0 to St. Dom’s in the Western C Final. This year’s squad should be more consistent throughout.

Juniors Matt Michaud and Ryan Rousseau are returning league all-stars. Both will be prime scoring threats, as will both Asad Dahia (a junior) and Mohamed Dahia (a senior).

A pair of freshmen, Jackson CohanSmith and Noah Seely, will make an impact at midfield. On defense, juniors Sam Leishman and Forest Milburn have experience. They’re joined by Finnish transfer student Niklas Nirvanmaa, a 6-foot-3 player, who will also see time at the midfield. Senior Jesse Holland, a transfer from Brunswick, is new in goal and is highly touted.

NYA needs to win the games it’s supposed to. Showdowns with perennial powers Cape Elizabeth (in the opener, Wednesday, Sept. 8) and Yarmouth (both on the road) will be hard to win, so the Panthers must get Heal Points where they can.

Once they’re in the dance, they’re capable of going all the way for the first time in five seasons. This should be a very intriguing and strong squad from start to finish.

It’s imperative for the Rangers to get off to a hot start as the schedule doesn’t get all that challenging for awhile. Greely just needs to win some big games. If the Rangers do make another trip to the playoffs, look out. This will be a team that no one wants to face. They’re always at their best when expectations aren’t high. That means the 2010 campaign could wind up very successful.

“It’s a great group of kids,” said second-year coach Martyn Keen. “We have more talent this year all-around. We have good leadership and we’re more confident. We’re taking shape. We hope to improve gradually as the year goes along. We just need enough Heal Points to get it. We only have 12 countable games. If we get in, we have a chance to make some serious noise.”

“I don’t know what to expect after losing 15 seniors,” said coach Mike Andreasen, entering his 13th year. “We’re

Golf from page 20 Hadlock, juniors Parker Howard and Jake Landry and sophomore Ryan Walters can step up to pick up the slack. The Panthers should win their share of regular season matches and will hope to be at their best at state meet qualifying. While all eyes will be on Millett as he looks to win another individual crown, his teammates could make for a special season all around if they can find a way

to make it back to Natanis for states.

“We’re not as deep as last year,” said second-year coach Mike Dutton. “We lost much. We’ll need to rely on newcomers to improve and contribute.”

NYA was at Old Orchard Beach in the opener Wednesday.

The state championship matches will be held Saturday, Oct. 9. The individual championships are the following Saturday. Both title rounds will be hosted by Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@theforecaster.net

Cross country from page 21 said coach Brian Berkemeyer, entering his third year, with former Falcons standout Josh Zolla as his assistant. “The senior leadership will be key as well as developing the skills of the rest of the team. We have a lot of depth which will help us keep a solid program for years to come.” Freeport’s girls were also strong in 2009, as the Falcons placed third at states. Freeport returns junior Ellie Soule (fourth at last year’s state meet), senior Lauren Easler (15th), sophomore Lia Wellin (21st) and senior Brie Roy (28th). Senior Brina Dillon and freshman Gabby Tilton are new to the team and will seek to help the pack. While Waynflete is the favorite and North Yarmouth Academy is strong, the Falcons will be able to hold their own. “It’s a bit of a rebuilding year for the girls, but after our performance last year with only six girls, we look to contend once again,” Berkemeyer said. North Yarmouth Academy’s girls were runner-up (by a single point) to Waynflete in 2009. This year, the Panthers return four scorers. Top returners include junior Hillary Detert (third at states a year ago), junior Maggie Meixell (seventh), junior Sarah Jordan (10th) and junior Morgan Scully (12th). Junior Hadley Gibson, who was injured a year ago, adds depth. There aren’t a lot of girls on the team so staying healthy

to working hard and improving, and that should be evident in the weeks to come. The Clippers will get into the win column and if all goes well, could make a run at a .500 mark and maybe even a playoff berth. This program is on the rise. “I’m excited for the season because we have a strong group of seniors who have is paramount. The Panthers want to be at their best at the end, like they were a year ago. If all goes well, NYA will battle Waynflete down to the end once again. “Our numbers are back to normal,” said ninth-year coach Chris Mazzurco. “The majority of last years runners return. We hope to get five healthy to the line. If we do, we’ll be pretty good. The girls are excited. I’m looking forward to watching this group.” NYA’s boys came in third at states last year. All five scorers return. A year ago, junior Cam Regan was eighth, junior Evan Kendall 14th, junior Rudy Guiliani 19th, junior Grant McPherson 29th and senior Eliot Daniels 34th. Junior Brian Trelegan also ran and came in 46th, but did not score. That’s a pretty solid nucleus. This pack shows great promise and barring injury, should be very strong in the regular season and especially come the big meets at the end. NYA has what it takes to ascend to the top of Class C for the first time since 2002. “I’m very much looking forward to the season,” said fifth-year coach Peter Sillin. “We only graduated one of our top seven, so we’re still a young team, but the guys are growing in experience and maturing as runners, so I’m sure our best days are ahead of us. I’m hopeful that if we stay injury-free, we can be in the mix again at the end of the year.” The regional championship meet is Saturday, Oct. 23 at Twin Brook in Cumberland. The state championships are Saturday, Oct. 30 in Belfast. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@theforecaster.net

Our forward line will be supported by solid midfielders and Lindsey, our center-mid, is going to create a lot for us offensively. Many

Pension from page 5 A year later after the second Monks commission in 1994, Leslie – a highlysuccessful international investment banker in his private life – hit even harder in an essay for the Maine Center for Economic Policy. Leslie, the current chairman of the pension board, wrote that Maine has a “20-year history” of “tinkering” with the

pension numbers for “political expediency.” One example: During the budget crisis of the early 1990s, the Legislature and Gov. John McKernan mandated the pension board change its investment assumptions from an 8 percent return to 8.2 percent. Leslie wrote that while that “saved” $20 million on paper, “the number was fictitious” because it was based on politics, not fiscal analysis. During this same period, facing a budget hole of more than $1 billion, McKernan

and the Legislature reduced benefits, which saved money, but also borrowed from the retirement funds to help fill the budget hole. By this point there was a growing consensus – from legislators, from the groups that represented employees and teachers and from the members of the study commissions – that something had to be done to force the state into some form of fiscal discipline. Mary Anne Turowski, a long-time veteran of the state employees union and its

current lobbyist, recalled the employees and teachers were increasingly worried. “There was no certainty in the state’s capacity to continue to pay,” she said. “The attitude was ‘we were robbed.’” John Christie is publisher and senior reporter at the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, a non-partisan and nonprofit journalism organization based in Hallowell. His e-mail is mainecenter@gmail.com. The center website is pinetreewatchdog.org.

Comment on this story at:

nity for students. Oberhaug also noted how challenging it will be for students to self-report. “I can’t imagine any adult who has run a stoplight would find it easy to go to the police station and self-report,” she said. “To expect that of a child is really huge.” The School Committee made a few

language clarifications and suggestions to the Policy Committee, and tabled the discussion until its next meeting, Thursday, Sept. 9. To see the draft code, visit the Yarmouth School website.

Honor code

from page 1 The draft code is more concise, Hall said, and its purpose is stated clearly: to build a sense of ownership, pride and collaboration among those who participate in extracurricular activities; to discourage students from using tobacco, alcohol and drugs, and to encourage responsible behavior in the event students break the code. School Committee member Andy Tureff is also head of the policy committee. He said the code clarifies the requirement for meeting with the substance abuse counselor or social worker for a non-clinical assessment and education process. For a first-time offense, a student will face a 14-day suspension from all extracurricular activities, but may return to practices, rehearsals or meetings after seven days without competing or performing official duties for the full two-week period. A second offense will result in a 28-day suspension; after 14 days the student can return to practices, rehearsals and meetings, but cannot perform or compete in an official manner for 28 days. A third offense results in a 12-month suspension from all extracurricular activities. Students must meet with a substance abuse counselor or

33

Northern

social worker for all offenses. If a student chooses to self-report, for a first-time offense there will be no restriction from participation, but there will be a meeting with the substance abuse counselor or social worker. For a selfreported second offense students will be suspended for 14 days, but may return to activities after seven days. The third offense for a student who self-reports will result in a six-month suspension from activities and a meeting with the substance abuse counselor or social worker. “Self-reporting encourages communication,” Tureff said. He said the importance of the policy is to shift the emphasis from punishment and consequences to accountability and responsibility, and to promote communication between students, parents and the community. “This is a tool to help us get kids to make the right choices,” Ray said. “For them to take responsibility is a lesson with far more importance than the consequences. It is a great incentive.” Debe Oberhaug, a parent of two high school students, said streamlining the code will make it easier to talk to her children about responsibility. She encouraged administrators and parents to work together more effectively to create and encourage a safe commu-

Capall Creek Farm from page 7 friends hang out at the farm with her. All of them are avid riders. “Everybody in my family loves hockey, they’re all sports fans,” Abby said. “I kind of found my own thing.”

“She’s been putting in steady 12-hour days,” her father added. As the family takes over the farm, everyone – from 22-year-old Andrew, who is designing the website, to 10-year-old Aidan, who is learning to mow the lawn, to 3-year-old Paige, who hauls corn and oats for the horses in her plastic wagon –

is putting in overtime. Even their dogs, Bogey and Skidder, spend days exploring the property, searching for new swamps to roll in. The family recently laid new ground in the indoor show ring and are hauling hay for the winter. They have help from the previous owner, Lane, who will be

boarding some of his horses at the farm. “He said it was really emotional, he was selling his dream farm,” Sterling said. “And Kevin said, ‘yes, it’s really emotional. I’m buying my dream farm.’” Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or eparkhurst@theforecaster.net

Inactive ingredients - compounded drugs can be made without dyes, sugars, glutens, preservatives and other inactive ingredients found in regular prescription drugs. Delivery Method - compound drugs can be prepared as topical creams, lozenges or flavored syrups (great for kids and animals) instead of hard-to-swallow pills.

Falmouth’s poor from page 1 schools and she is very proud to call the town home. “It’s so peaceful and quiet here. The people are so friendly,” she said. “I love Falmouth.” In 2008, Falmouth spent approximately $15,000 on general assistance, which pays rent, utility bills and provides food vouchers for residents who qualify. In 2010, the town spent almost $90,000. “It’s continuously going up and up,” Town Clerk Ellen Planer said. “A lot of people have lost jobs, haven’t been able to find jobs, are waiting for Social Security funds, there are a number of single parents. This is a safety net for people.” The state-mandated general assistance program costs are split between the state and the municipality. Falmouth pays the People’s Regional Opportunity Program

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/66387

to run the general assistance program out of the Town Hall; residents must produce their financial records to prove they qualify for the program.

Cracks in the program While general assistance helped 389 people in Falmouth last year, there are some who fall through the cracks. Peter Leeman is one of those people. Leeman, who couldn’t remember if he was 55 or 56, lives in a small house on the Foreside that he inherited from his parents. When he was 19 years old, Leeman was in a car accident on Blackstrap Road that left him paralyzed and in a wheelchair. He spent nine months in a rehab facility in Virginia, then came back to Falmouth, where he has lived for the past 30 years.

September 2, 2010

“This used to be all summer cottages and a trailer park,” he said of his neighborhood, which is now dominated by large, single-family homes with multi-car garages. “It’s changed a lot.” Leeman now pays more in annual property taxes than his parents paid for the property in 1940s. His medical bills continue to increase as coverage for medications and treatment is reduced. He recently had to install a $70,000 driving controller in his van when the old one could no longer be repaired. The payment is $400 per month. “I’ll be paying for that for the rest of my life,” he said. Meanwhile, Leeman has not seen a cost-of-living increase in his disability income in years. “Sometimes I’m just in the red. Sometimes things just don’t get paid,” he said. As a result, he has turned to the food pantry to help out, sometimes with food,

sometimes with other expenses such as basic home improvement work. His disability income is too high for him to qualify for general assistance from the town. Both Leeman and Anderson expressed frustration that they are not able to make ends meet. Yet, despite their situations, both were deeply concerned that they only take what they absolutely had to to survive. “If somebody came to my door tomorrow, and they didn’t have any food, I would feed them,” Anderson said. She said when she gets depressed about her situation, she turns on the radio and dances around the house. She said it helps her forget, even for a moment, the piles of bills and credit card statements and her diminishing bank account. “Sometimes it feels really good to take a break from reality,” she said.
