Angry Woods kills plan for office building By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — The owner of TideSmart Global said Tuesday that he will not proceed with plans for a $3 million office building because of the
Town Council’s recent discussion about his existing business sign. “If I can’t do business with a sign, how can I try to work with them on a building,” said
Steve Woods, who is also the chairman of the Yarmouth Town Council and an independent candidate for U.S. Senate. Woods, in an interview at his Route 1 office, displayed
renderings of the building he said he had planned to build in Falmouth – until last week’s council meeting. On Aug. 27, according to their agenda, councilors were sched-
uled to discuss “an amendment to the Zoning and Site Plan Review Ordinance to review the requirements for property idenSee page 31

Parents from Edgewater Road in Falmouth record their children as they gather at the bus stop on Tuesday morning for the first day of school. After getting the OK from the driver to cross Route 88, Edgewater Road kids scramble to get aboard the bus for the ride to school on Tuesday in Falmouth.
By Will Graff FREEPORT — Harold Arndt’s dream will live on, at least for another few years. Arndt’s 113-foot, two-masted schooner being built out of recycled materials off Lower Flying Point Road will have three more years to be completed after the Town Council on Tuesday night approved an agreement – with significant stipulations – to allow the foundation that oversees the project to continue working on the boat. In a 6-0 vote, with one abstention, the council extended the consent agreement that has allowed the Island Rover project to exist in violation of neighborhood zoning laws since 2005. The council debated the length of the extension and added several requirements to be met, including quarterly reports to the town on progress, regular safety and environmental checks of the property, and a financial assurity package that will prevent taxpayers from being responsible for the cleanup if the project is not completed on time. “Three years, I think we can live with; two years would have been setting us up to fail,” said Arndt, who is president of the Island Rover Foundation and started building the boat as personal project 20 years ago. “At least we got a decision, now I’ve just got to go do it.” The council had originally planned to vote on the project in August, but waited while the project site was reviewed by the Department of Environmental Protection and the Fire Department. Both reviews determined the project was safe. Construction of the boat, made of reused scrap See page 31
Petition forces vote on Falmouth Flyer bus service By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — Voters will decide the fate of the Falmouth Flyer METRO bus service in November. Resident Michael Doyle’s petition to end Falmouth’s contract with METRO for bus service between Portland and Falmouth contained enough valid signaIndex Arts Calendar ................28 Classifieds .....................34 Community Calendar.....26
tures – 872 – to qualify for the ballot in November, the town clerk said Tuesday. Doyle, who has publicly opposed the bus service since it began in 2004, said he thinks voters should have the chance to vote on the expense. “I’ve ridden the bus several times, probably close to a dozen times and I’m
usually one of two or three people in Falmouth on the bus at any given time, on any given day,” he said. Doyle’s petition was contested by bus backers earlier this summer. They claimed the man collecting signatures – who Doyle would not identify – was giving people false information about the
petition’s goal. “Some of the people who signed that petition were told false information and that’s outrageous,” said Lisa Agnew, spokeswoman for the Friends of the Falmouth Flyer. “But there’s nothing in

Often known as a charrette, the weekend gives residents the opportunity to meet with planners, architects, engineers and artists to mold and shape a new master plan for the Route 1 corridor and create a new zoning code. The session is being called Planapalooza 2012, Town Planner Vanessa Farr said. “For the public, what’s different is that it is an intense planning session, multiple days all in a row, instead of meetings POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT

monthly for years,” Farr said. “This is the community’s public hearing.” This model allows the town to put together a planning model for the town’s economic and development future over five days, which Farr said she hopes will promote more involvement by community members. The town hopes to have tangible drawings and plans presented at the closing of the long weekend, which runs from Sept. 13-17. The actual zoning code will be written in four to six weeks after the planning session, Farr said.

“Yarmouth will be welcoming new development applications through a new process by late winter under this new review process,” she said. The discussion will be aimed at developing a new code more focused on form of development and less focused on use, with buildings that are designed to respect the town’s character in outside appearance, with less of a focus on what is inside, Farr said. The planning session will be run by the Gardiner-based consulting firm Town Planning & Urban Design Collaborative. The firm will also be looking at environmental sustainability projects, such as storm water management, and connectivity planning that focuses on the town’s walkability. Planapalooza will start at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Yarmouth High School cafeteria with a hands-on design workshop, followed by an interim review Saturday at the American Legion Log Cabin, 196 Main St. The closing presentation will be made Monday. All the events offer free food, including a pizza party, a chocolate reception and a community soup dinner, with a food donation to the Food Pantry. The Town Hall Community Room will be open every day of the planning session for an “Open Design Studio.” The total cost of the weekend is $50,000, which includes design and zoning code, plus the cost of a new permitting process. The funding for the project comes from the town’s economic development fund. Last week, the town hosted a presentation that included discussion about the town’s future, as well as, a short bus tour around the Route 1 corridor. About 50 people attended, Farr said.

Falmouth begins review of school drug, alcohol policy By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — The School Board on Tuesday night discussed the timeline for making revisions to its alcohol and drug policy, and reviewed changes to the state policy on the use of physical restraints. The drug-and-alcohol-policy review follows a summer when police responded to two parties involving Falmouth High School students and alleged underage drinking. The first party on June 16, billed as a chem-free celebration of Falmouth's baseball and lacrosse state championships, ended with the arrest of one minor for administrative operating under the influence and two other minors being charged with possession of alcohol by consumption. The homeowners were summonsed for allowing minors to possess and consume alcohol. Police responded to second party on June 23, also involving Falmouth High School students and arrested Seth Russell, 21, for furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol. Seven minors were charged with possession of alcohol. The last revision of the alcohol and drug policy took place in the 2005-2006 school year and looked at the role of the School Department in investigating drug, alcohol or tobacco use on and off campus, and how to best use school resources to promote safe behaviors for students. On Tuesday, Policy Committee Chairman Christopher Murry Jr. and High
School Principal Gregg Palmer said a review committee of community members, students, parents, town officials, teachers, coaches, administrators and board members will work together through next March when a vote on a new policy is expected. The addition of community members is a step not taken in the previous review of the policy and it is one that Murry said he believes will aid in the effectiveness of the policy. “The role of the community and the role of the school are two important issues that are directly connected to the effectiveness of this policy,” Murry said. Specifically the task force will look at

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/134158
where student behavior takes place, the policy for self-reporting, and will address how to discipline students who are “knowingly in the presence of alcohol/ illegal substances” – something not dealt with in the current policy. Work on creating the task force will begin this week and the board expects a first reading of the new policy sometime in February. Board members also listened to a presentation by Drummond Woodsum attorney Eric Herlan about the sweeping statewide reform regarding the use of
therapeutic restraint and seclusion. “(This is a) broad new law and it applies to all school districts in the state and applies to schools wherever they may be with students,” Herlan said. The new law applies to everyone in a school setting who has contact with students and totally rewrites the old rules. The new definition of physical restraint says that restraint is “any intervention that restricts a student’s freedom of movement or normal access to his or her body and includes physically moving a student who has not moved voluntarily.” School officials may only use restraint when there is an “imminent risk of physi-

Inspections aim to reduce risk in commercial fishing By Will Graff PORTLAND — Commercial fishing and Maine are synonymous. Lobsters are printed on T-shirts, tourism brochures and plastered on the bumpers of cars. The industry has special government boards dedicated to it and monuments have been built to glorify the profession. It’s woven into the fabric of the state. It’s also one of the deadliest professions in Maine and in the nation. Of the more than half a million workers in Maine, 15 percent of the total workplace deaths in the last decade came from just 2,000 people working in the state’s commercial fishing industry. According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health Commercial Fishing Incident Database, 36 people were

killed in 26 separate incidents while fishing commercially off Maine’s coast from 2000-2011. Of the total deaths, 27 were caused by vessel disasters, usually induced by flooding. And a third of the deaths occurred in the lobster fleet. It’s the same story in the region. A recent report by the Center for Public Integrity, Boston public radio station WBUR and National Public Radio, found that from 2000 to 2009, people working in the groundfish fishery off New England and New York were 37 times more likely to die on the job as a police officer. A 2010 report from NIOSH shows that from 2000-2009, 165 commercial fishermen were killed while fishing off the East Coast, making the region more deadly than Alaska, which had 133 deaths. Despite these high death rates, government and industry have been slow to enact regulations that address the dangers of the commercial fishing. But now, a new federal law that goes into effect Oct. 16 may help stem that grim tide, U.S. Coast Guard officials hope. For the first time, commercial fishing vessels that operate three or more miles from the coast will be required to undergo a dockside examination by the Coast Guard. Changes to the standards those boats have to meet in the examinations are being developed, but will likely not be implemented for another few years. This is the first action to come from the U.S. Coast Guard Reauthorization Act of

2010. Up until now, these examinations have been voluntary. Kevin Plowman, a Coast Guard inspector in Maine, estimated that of 2,400 vessels that fall under the new law, only about 20 percent of the fleet is currently examined. Plowman said although the exams do not impose any new regulations, he thinks they will help improve safety for commercial fishermen. “It certainly is a step in the right direction,” he said. “What we want to know is, do you have the equipment to survive if something happens? We look at it a partnership with the fishermen.” Besides Plowman, there is only one inspector for the Coast Guard’s 1st District, which covers Maine and part of New Hampshire. Although another inspector is expected this fall, Plowman admitted it will be difficult to get all the inspections done before Oct. 16. “Can you do 2,000 exams in a month and

a half?,” he said. “No, but we’re going to do the best we can.” The Coast Guard can board a vessel at any time three or more miles out from shore, Plowman said, but they look only for proper safety equipment, such as flares and life jackets, not necessarily at the integrity of the boat. “If you do it dockside, its easier to complete the exam than if you get boarded out there by the Coast Guard,” he said. “All your stuff is in order already and you don’t continued page 30

Chebeague fills key jobs, seeks committee members By Alex Lear CHEBEAGUE ISLAND — While still seeking residents to fill several committee openings, the town recently hired three key employees. Dick Clarke of Long Island was hired in June to fill a vacant public services job in a three-quarter-time capacity, according to an announcement by Town Administrator Eric Dyer. Clarke spent several years providing public works services on Long Island, and he has significant experience with equipment operation and maintenance. Clarke also offers “a high degree of professionalism, and is well versed in road maintenance and repair techniques among other relevant education and training,” according to Dyer. Margaret Muller of Portland fills the newly created job of municipal bookkeeper. She works in the town office one to two days a week, helping with

check reconciliation, accounts payable processing and audit preparation, as well as developing and implementing internal financial controls for the town, according to Dyer. She previously spent more than six years as the Winterport Water District’s assistant treasurer and office manager. “Margaret has experience in all of the areas she was hired to assist with and most importantly has worked with the specialized Trio accounting soft-
ware used by the Town,” Dyer said. John Holt of Chebeague was also hired to fill a vacant deputy town clerk position. Michelle Jones, who previously wore many hats at Gray’s towns office, was hired earlier this year as Chebeague’s town clerk and tax collector. She is the immediate past president of the Cumberland County Municipal Clerks Association, is a certified clerk of Maine and a graduate of the New England Municipal Clerks Institute and Academy. Meanwhile, Chebeague is looking for two people to fill three-year terms on the seven-member Planning Board,

Cumberland Wood Bank helps turn lumber into fuel funds By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — As the warm days of summer give way to the chill of autumn and winter, the Cumberland Wood Bank wants to make sure as many residents as possible keep warm, whether they can afford it or not. The Wood Bank’s crew will meet at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, on Drowne Road behind the Public Works garage, to deliver wood to customers who have purchased it – and possibly to bring wood to people in need who can burn it. Money raised from selling the wood goes toward purchasing fuel for people in need who cannot burn wood, according to Bruce
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/133934
Wildes, who chairs the committee that collects, processes and delivers the wood. Diane Bennekamper, reverend at the Cumberland Congregational Church, allocates the wood and money to people in need in the greater Cumberland area, Wildes said. “There are people that can use the help, and this is a way to give back to the community,” Wildes said. The bank – which gets its wood through donations, as long as the material has already been cut – has been delivering wood
for several years. The amount is driven by demand; about 45 cords were delivered in the last two years. “We get a lot of demand as the weather starts to turn,” Wildes said. The number of volunteers to deliver the wood is also a factor in how many deliveries are made. “We always need volunteers,” Wildes said. “... We definitely need trucks and trailers, but we also need muscles.” Those interested in volunteering, donating wood or buying wood can reach Wildes at 370-8210 or bruce@lmcgroup. biz. People in need can call Bennekamper at 829-3419.
As of last week the bank had about half of its needed inventory for the season, which amounts to about 20 to 25 cords. “We’re going to be in need of more wood,” Wildes said. He noted that he tends to find more people in need who burn oil, rather than wood. “So we ended up find that it was just as advantageous to sell it to people who could afford to buy it,” Wildes said, “and people like to buy it from us, knowing that all of the proceeds are going to go to somebody that needs help.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@ theforecaster.net.

Tar sands oil to be discussed in Falmouth FALMOUTH — Maine’s chapter of the Sierra Club will discuss the difference between tar sands oil and conventional oil, and the potential risks involved with its transportation, on Sept. 11 at 7 p.m. at Falmouth Memorial Library.

“This is an issue that both has national but also extremely local connections and Falmouth in particular,” Brand said. “Cumberland, Yarmouth and Freeport (also) have a real investment in protecting not only our drinking water source in Sebago Lake, but also Casco Bay.” He said Maine environmentalists are concerned that Enbridge Corp., a Canadian gas and oil company, hopes to pump tar sands oil from Alberta through an existing pipeline and into South Portland. “The prospect of a tar sands oil spill into Casco Bay or Sebago Lake would really have catastrophic economic and environmental consequences,” Brand said. A question-and-answer period will follow the 30-minute presentation.

Homer’s sweet home: Museum prepares Prout’s Neck studio for tours By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — Winslow Homer traveled the world in search of inspiration for his art. And he found plenty along the rocky shores of Scarborough, working in a converted carriage house on Prout’s Neck that will be opened to public tours beginning Sept. 25. ‘We want an authentic experience. We want people to come here and get a sense of who Homer was,” said Kristen Levesque, director of marketing and public relations at the Portland Museum of Art. Levesque said Homer would wander Prout’s Neck and sketch scenes, but finshed his work indoors and lived nearly year round in the studio. Much of the work competed at the studio captures seas roiling over rocks to a view from the shore looking up to the fog-bound studio. Through a $10.5 million capital campaign, the museum was able to buy the property in 2006. It spent $2.8 million to restore the 2,300-square-foot, two-story structure, and created an endowment for exhibitions and care of the building. Scarborough tax records show the museum bought the property – just over 1/10th of an acre – for $1.8 million. Homer’s studio was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966, and is tucked into an area his family bought in the mid-1880s and hoped to develop as an artist’s colony. By then, Homer was approaching 50 and known for his magazine illustrations from the Civil War, and oil or watercolor landscapes. Before making Scarborough his permanent home, Homer lived in Cullercoats, a North Sea town in the United Kingdom. Levesque said Homer continued to travel after settling in Scarborough, but died in his studio in 1910 at age 74. Levesque noted Home did not enjoy distractions as he worked in the studio, which was moved from its original site near a family home called “The Ark,” and redesigned by Portland architect John Calvin Stevens. Yet there are extensive photos of him at work and of the studio, which proved invaluable in the restoration process. The photos allowed restorers to count exterior clapboards, and Levesque said

way to keep out sightseers Homer called “rusticators.” On the second floor, space has been devoted to highlighting other artists who have worked in Maine or called it home. Levesque said the multimedia presentations will be changed to keep things fresh. The studio will open with a Sept. 17 ceremony and press preview, and public tours begin Sept. 25. Access is limited to 10 visitors at a time, who will be driven to the studio in a van from the Congress Square museum in Portland. Studio tours will end for the year on
Dec. 2, and resume next spring from April 2 to June 14. Levesque said no tour schedule has been determined beyond next spring.
To help celebrate the opening of the Homer studio at Prout’s Neck, the Portland Museum of Art, which owns more than 400 of Winslow Homer’s works, will feature 35 oils and watercolors on loan from museums around the country in a exhibition called “Weatherbeaten: Winslow Homer and Maine.” The exhibition will run Sept. 22-Dec. 30 at the museum, 7 Congress Square, Portland.

the interior pine walls and floors were dismantled and cleaned. Excavation below Homer’s painting room turned up empty paint bottles and brush tips. His name is etched into a first-floor library window, and his pencilled literary quotations are still visible on walls. The interior restoration recaptures Homer’s working environment, and the exterior piazza facing the ocean has been reinforced with steel beams so visitors can step into the view, which on a sunny day extends beyond Old Orchard Beach to the mouth of the Saco River. The piazza was a major addition by Stevens, but was already faltering while Homer was alive. Workers also rebuilt the studio’s mansard roof and the ladder Homer used to climb to a rooftop perch. The artist’s passions beyond the palate are well represented inside with his pipe, fishing rod, an eel spear and nets. A sign on the mantle warning of abundant snakes and mice was once posted outdoors as a

Open Letter to the Falmouth Town Council, On Monday, August 27th, you held a public meeting to review a zoning amendment regarding “Property Identification Signs.” It should be noted that this Council item was a town wide policy issue, as it was an amendment that applied to “business signage” – not to me personally or my company, TideSmart Global. While the amendment was/is certainly relevant to an ongoing signage situation involving my business, the agenda item being considered by the Town Council was a general ordinance matter. Yet for 47-minutes, I was personally referenced approximately 100 times – while the merits of the actual ordinance change being considered – was not referenced even once. Not once. And during that 47-minute hearing, I was personally, professionally and politically insulted, disparaged, and slandered by the Falmouth Town Council in a manner that can only be described as an act of malice. (The video of this meeting is available on the town website.) Irony #1 : The ordinance that the Falmouth Town Council claimed that I’m in violation of was for the most part supplied by me two years ago. When I was in the process of developing my business campus in Falmouth, the town did not have a detailed policy pertaining to business campus signage and I was told by the town that if I wanted one, that I should submit my own. So, I spent considerable time and expense by engaging a local engineering firm to basically write the town’s new signage ordinance. Without wasting too much ink here, I firmly believe that my business signage here at TideSmart is in compliance and if there is any issue, subjective or not, it concerns an accent word (“Global”) on the signage that is 4” instead of 5” – not a typo, inches. (Yes, most signage complaints involve display lettering too large, not 1-inch too small – a smaller irony on top of another.) Irony #2 : In recent history, the Falmouth Town Council and various members felt as though they were being unfairly criticized by members of the public. In direct response, Falmouth Councilors went as far as unanimously passing an official “Resolution” that in effect outlawed, “…name calling, personal attacks…abusive bullying and threatening language….” from members of the public expressed towards the Council and its members. Declared by the Council, “…such language does not foster the free and open exchange of ideas on which the operation of good government depends….such behavior undermines our elected form of government and our democratic institutions and will not be tolerated at any time during Council meetings or through Council correspondence.” Beyond the resolution, there was a verbalized sentiment that “no one” should address or attack Councilors directly or “personally” and that Council matters should stay within the parameters of each issue itself. That resolution was followed by the Town Council drafting an amendment to their Council Rules that was even more restrictive. Ultimately, the Council dropped the draconian rules change after the Maine Civil Liberties Union weighed in with the correct opinion that such restrictions were “unconstitutional.” Irony #3 : Please direct your attention to the two photos below. (Both were taken on Saturday, September 1, 2012, and neither has been altered.) The sign on the left is owned and maintained by the town of Falmouth itself. Its central location (corner U.S. Route 1 & Depot Rd.) makes it one of the most visible “signs” in all of Falmouth. Its content and directional function (Town Hall, Police Department, Schools, etc.) makes it one of the most critical signs in Falmouth. Yet, for many years now this faded sign with ½-inch to 3-inch letters is so illegible that it’s completely non-functional and more of a public safety hazard than anything else. Over the years, how many Falmouth Town Councilors and town employees have driven past this sign every single day with no action, no outrage and no televised indignation? The photo on the right shows the TideSmart entrance. Last Monday, one Falmouth Town Councilor (Orestis) suggested that I should be forced to “remove” both rock walls/signs because the accent word below “TideSmart” (Global) is only 4-inches and not 5. Irony #4 : In the aftermath of last week’s Council meeting, I wrote to the Falmouth Town Council Chairwoman, Faith Varney, and respectfully requested an opportunity to address the Council on their concerns over my sign, during their September 24th meeting. (I indicated that my travel schedule would not allow me to attend their next meeting on September 10th.) I also wrote, “Given that the Falmouth Town Council spent 47-minutes on Monday, 8/27, discussing this issue, with much of that time used to personally and professionally disparage me - I think that it would be fair to allow me ample time to refute the numerous misstatements made by town staff and various members of the Council. I believe that 40-minutes would be adequate.” In response to my request, here is what Chairwoman Varney said by email, “As for the amount of time, I suggest 8 minutes. I arrived at this amount of time by taking the 47 minutes and dividing it by 6 (the number of persons who contributed to the conversation) and rounding it up to a whole number.” My subsequent written response to her was, “Regarding time allocation, I'm not sure I understand your logic. If the Council and town staff generated 47-minutes of comments/observations/mis-statements/etc., last meeting, wouldn't it be reasonable to assume that it might take a comparable amount of time to adequately address the sum of those same discussion elements, regardless of how many participants were involved? How can I address the content of the Council's 47-minutes of discussion in 8-minutes? By your logic, if the town had included more participants attacking me last Monday, would I now have even less time to offer my response?” The latest written response from Chairwoman Varney, “As for time allocation, I have offered, and continue to offer, eight (8) minutes. That is three minutes over the amount of time offered to Falmouth citizens to speak at the beginning of our regular meetings. It is enough time to state your facts and not enough time to bore your audience, which I believe you are aware that the requested 40 minutes would do.” Bore my audience? More time than offered to “Falmouth citizens” as opposed to what - business owners? Beyond the significant (and obvious) legal, constitutional and practical considerations, Chairwoman Varney’s colliding (and bizarre) concepts of math and democracy are beyond troubling. Back to last Monday’s Council meeting. Was it blind hypocrisy, blatant ignorance or governmental incompetency that fueled the Falmouth Town Council to spend 47-minutes attacking a local business owner during a public meeting on an item that was not even specific to him? And why did their words and tonality suggest that a “business owner” was an inferior and less deserving community member as compared with a “homeowner”? Three years ago my current property at 380 US Route 1 featured a “For Sale” sign and a large undeveloped lot with large piles of dirt, rock and trash. The property was on the market for quite some time with no one else interested in making an investment in this area of Falmouth. The “signage” at the time consisted of a $20 hardware store mailbox with small lettering on U.S. Route 1, sitting upon a crooked wooden post. Since 2009, I’ve personally committed more than $3 million buying this property, adding a Class A building, installing solar power, spending more than $30,000 on a stone entrance made from reclaimed rock from the site and making many, many site improvements. Also, I’ve added at my expense, evergreen trees to shield the town’s unsightly sewer substation at the corner of US Route 1 & Johnson Rd. I’ve engaged numerous Falmouth based businesses for goods/services (landscape, hardscape, engineering, excavation, electric, foodservice, maintenance, etc.) I’ve supported the Falmouth School system through numerous donations to the Falmouth Education Foundation. I’ve hired numerous Falmouth residents for various part-time and full-time opportunities. Finally, I’ve paid more than $79,762 in various taxes and fees to Falmouth. In short, I believe that since locating my business in Falmouth almost three years ago, I’ve been a good neighbor, friend and economic contributor to this community. As a business owner, an elected official and candidate for the U.S. Senate, I am used to hearing and reading public comments that contain some measure of public criticism, complaint or disappointment directed towards me. I can accept that reality as being an element of my public role. But the Falmouth Town Council did something last Monday evening that fell into a whole different category. You misused your roles as Town Councilors during a Town Council meeting to attack me for 47-minutes about something that in the end, represents a truth smaller than 1-inch. In the coming days when members of the Council are driving down U.S. Route 1 here in Falmouth searching out other “1-inch” signage infractions that warrant public pain and embarrassment for their owners, please take notice of the dozens of “For Sale” and “For Lease” signs that surround my building and are sprouting up all along U.S. Route 1 in Falmouth. These signs reflect a clear and meaningful manifestation that doing business in Falmouth is too hard and too costly. And last Monday night, the Falmouth Town Council made it much harder. Some members more than others, but as a collective, the entire Falmouth Town Council, should be ashamed. During the meeting, Councilor Orestis made an animated televised statement infused with the cheapest brand of political pompousness about “sending a message” to local businesses. Message received. More than accomplishing your stated goal of “hurting” me, you let down the people of Falmouth – residents and business owners. They deserve more from their elected officials. We all do. Stephen M.

With port strikes looming, businesses plan for the worst By Whit Richardson Bangor Daily News
PORTLAND — The union that represents dock workers at East Coast ports, including Portland’s, is threatening to strike if it’s not successful in renegotiating its contract with port operators. A strike could impact several Maine businesses and produce a ripple effect throughout the state’s economy. The recent round of negotiations between the International Longshoremen’s Association and the U.S. Maritime Alliance, which represents container carriers and port operators in the negotiations — including Port Americas, which operates the Portland Marine Terminal — broke down last week. No new talks are scheduled, both sides told the Associated Press. The current contract expires at the end of September. Meanwhile, the ILA chapter at the Port of New York and New Jersey, the East Coast’s busiest port, authorized a strike on Tuesday if the contract deal isn’t reached, according to the AP. The Portland Marine Terminal handles between 3,000 and 5,000 containers a year, on average, Jack Humeniuk, the ILA’s representative in Portland and an employee of Port Americas, told the Bangor Daily News. There are 45 members in Portland’s ILA chapter, he said. But it’s not just a disruption of con-
tainer service in Portland that would impact Maine businesses. A strike at ports in New York, Newark, Baltimore, Philadelphia and other East Coast ports would disrupt the entire nation’s supply chain and create a ripple effect throughout the economy. If the ILA workers strike, “the worst-case scenario” for Maine businesses, Humeniuk said, “is they’d have to move their stuff through the West Coast.” The contract in question is a master agreement on container service, so it won’t impact the noncontainerized cargo that moves in and out of Maine, such as wood pulp and lumber and fuel, Humeniuk said. For those Maine businesses that do receive and ship cargo by container — L.L. Bean, Sappi Fine Paper and White Rock Distilleries — a strike at East Coast ports would disrupt their supply chain and force them to seek alternative routes. L.L. Bean is “a considerable user” of Portland’s container service, Carolyn Beem, a spokeswoman for the Freeport retailer, told the BDN. “It’s a big part of the mix for us,” she said. “In terms of the looming strikes we are looking at contingency planning and routing more to the West Coast.” The worst-case scenario would be moving merchandise by air freight, Beem said. “That’s just ridiculous with the costs associated with that.” Another user of Portland’s container

service is White Rock Distilleries, the Lewiston liquor company purchased last year by Beam Inc., the producer of Jim Beam bourbon. It receives raw vodka from France at its Lewiston facility and ships out cases of Pinnacle brand vodka. “We’re definitely monitoring the situation,” said Paula Erickson, a spokeswoman for Beam Inc., “and we definitely have contingency plans in place if something should occur in terms of a strike or disruption at the ports.” Shifting supply chains and seeking alternative shipping routes would increase costs for White Rock, which employs more than 150 people, but that would be a secondary consideration, Erickson said. The company’s “No. 1 priority” would be to ensure 100 percent uninterrupted production and shipment of the company’s product. Sappi’s paper mill in Westbrook is also looking at its options if dock workers strike. “We are aware of a potential longshoreman strike and we are working with our supply chain partners to minimize or avoid any service disruptions through strategic contingency plans,” said Joanna Rieke, Sappi’s manager of corporate communications. It’s not just Maine’s largest shippers that would be affected. A strike at East Coast
ports would be felt throughout Maine’s economy as products get backed up at overburdened West Coast ports and the entire supply chain slows. “As it goes further down the supply chain it starts to have an impact on everybody,” L.L. Bean’s Beem said. For all Maine retailers, a prolonged strike could spell trouble, according to Curtis Picard, executive director of the Maine Merchants Association, especially since it would occur just as stores begin to stock up on Christmas-season merchandise. However, Picard expects the potential for a strike “is not even on the radar screen of small retailers,” he said. Picard is watching the situation and expects to reach out to his members within the next few weeks. In the meantime, if retailers are worried about how a strike would affect them, they should call their distributor and get a better handle on where their product is coming from and where the distributor is located, Picard said. “If they’re on the West Coast, they may not have an issue,” he said. Humeniuk was not at last week’s negotiations in Florida, but said the talks broke down over the use of automation at ports that eliminate longshoremen jobs and the question of port operators providing money

Portland has a sign language all its own I always wanted to live on a lake, thanks to memories of visiting my grandparents’ cottage in northern Michigan. My first sight was the lake, a sheet of glass with a mist hovering a few feet above. It was like waking up in an The View enchanted forest — on a backbreaking surplus Marine Corps cot, in a drafty cinder block cabin with no indoor plumbing and inadequate screening — because as a Midwesterner, I had no business enjoying something that someone else may have missed, and as a Protestant, even my fantasies were filled with mosquitoes. Despite being unable to enjoy it fully, the fan- Mike Langworthy tasy hung around in the background until last fall when some friends made it a reality. They asked us if we would do them “the favor” of staying in their beautiful lake house for the winter. Do them a favor? Lemmethinkaboutityes! Autumn was delightful. We had the still water and hovering mists, but not the insects. Indoor plumbing. It was five months of living the dream without having to buy the dream. Getting Elizabeth to school every morning was a little more time consuming, although it was a nice change from driving the same stretch of outer Congress Street. I was weary of seeing the same strip malls and gas sta-
tions every day, not to mention trying to resist the siren song of Tony’s Donuts. There would have been more time to engage with my daughter, except for the unspoken rule Elizabeth and I have developed about conversation in the car. I don’t speak, and that’s the rule. The longer silence, coupled with increased stop-and-go traffic on the new route, gave me a chance to observe the route, and I found myself increasingly drawn to the signage on the various businesses. An earlier contribution to these pages suggested how a few intriguing local businesses contribute to Portland’s unique personality. A completely unscientific study of how some of them choose to draw attention to themselves, undertaken from my car window on the way to my daughter’s school, confirms that unique character. The main thing, no pun intended, is how un-corporate Portland is. I’m sure the long-time Mainers would disagree, but they’ve never lived in southern California. L.A. is all about branding. On Ventura Boulevard, a car wash would either have an enormous sign conceived and executed by an out-of-work Disney animator, or a three-story tall pole dancer holding a sponge. You may run off the road, but you won’t forget it’s a car wash. Here’s what you won’t see: a smallish generic movable letter sign like one I saw on one of the lesser business streets. It carried the almost cryptic message, “Salt Eats Cars” with a hand drawn monster face poised over the word “Cars” like a Pac-Man with teeth. What really got me about this place though — and I’m sure it was just an accident of timing — was that the sign always seemed to say, “Salt Eats Cars — Car Wash Closed,” as if the owners were saying, “Sure, we could wash your car. Washing your car is no problem. But the
Put a Navy SEAL in the state Senate
Since the SEALs are the best of the best and one of their own is a resident of Cumberland and a small business owner running for this seat we ought to pay him some heed. It also occurs to me that since 99 percent of us could not ever qualify as a SEAL that candidate Chris Tyll is something extra special. This young family man will bring SEAL dedication and energy to the state Senate and he will serve us well. I will vote for Tyll. George A. Fogg North Yarmouth
It occurs to me that since the world was made safer by the removal of Bin Laden by our Navy SEALS, there ought to be a parallel between that super job of defending us from terrorists and the election of a state senator in District 11, which covers the towns of Falmouth, Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, Cumberland, Chebeague Island and Long Island.

salt will get you eventually, so, what’s the point?” I’m probably reading all this into the message, and I was simply driving by before they opened, but maybe, just maybe, this sign is brilliant advertising. It doesn’t fit the Western marketing model. Instead, it takes a Zen approach. By making it a challenge to find out when they are open, the business insures a customer base that truly wants their cars washed. It makes sense if you think about it, but not too much. Another sign I love is the one with the dog drinking out of a stein. A picture is worth a thousand words. Portland is a dog-friendly city. I applaud that. You can feel comfortable bringing your dog into the club. The Snug on Munjoy Hill usually has several dogs roaming around. It gives the place a homey feel. I don’t go to bars much, but I like the thought of my local joint welcoming pets. However. The dog is drinking out of a beer stein. I’m not saying it’s beer. For all I know, beer is good for dogs. I’m not implying any irresponsibility at all, but it’s a human beer stein. I have two dogs, I don’t even like it when they lick my face, because I’ve seen some of the places they go. So, I love the sign. I love how efficiently it conveys a message of warmth and inclusiveness, but I’m not joining the mug club. That’s all I’m saying.

Lawmaker challenged on accomplishment claim
Let’s be honest, Rep. Anne Graham. On your website and in news releases you’ve been promoting LD 1878, “An Act to Allow Abatement of Property Taxes Due to Hardship,” as your signature legislation in 2012, claiming it relieves property taxes for homes destroyed by “fire.” Maine towns have the sole ability to decide when tax abatements are needed by their property owners. Your ill-conceived proposal removed local decision making when there was fire damage to a building. Your bill was so egregious that it was fought by towns through the Maine Municipal Association, tax assessors, and even town officials in your district. Your bill was rejected by the Committee on Taxation because it reduced local control over property taxes. The version that ultimately passed purged your ideas, removed any reference to the word “fire” and only changed one word in the law. The word “hardship” replaced the word “infirmity,” thus giving more control to municipalities. Thankfully, your bill did not become law. Lincoln J. Merrill Jr. Foreclosure Committee North Yarmouth

GOP convention showed Romney at his best It seemed like forces were conspiring against the Republican national convention last week. The media was playing up Todd Aiken’s immoderate remarks. Ron Paul’s supporters were threatening to broker or boycott the convention. And Hurricane Isaac was depositing rains of biblical proportions on the Gulf Coast. But the Romney camShort paign did not panic. It remained resolute and stayed the course. It kept focused on the people, principles and policies that distinguish the Republican agenda. It began when Mitt Romney chose Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate. In doing so, Romney made a decision not to make some sort of appeal for votes from those in the middle of the political Halsey Frank spectrum. He elected to sharpen the ideological divide between himself and the president. The convention was crafted to illustrate that divide with speakers who personified the American Dream: that with hard work you can start from humble origins and build a business, become a congressman, a governor, a stateswoman, even president. They gave eloquent testimony about the goodness of Romney as a person, and the virtues of the policies he proposes for America. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley introduced herself as the proud daughter of Indian immigrants who came to America, started a business, and built it into a multimillion-dollar company. As governor, she worked to encourage private enterprise, like Boeing, to come to her state. But it wasn’t easy, because the Obama administration fought her. She explained that as president, Mitt Romney would support business, not oppose, business development. Ann Romney told the audience how her husband is a hard-working businessman who will work hard to restore American prosperity. He was not handed success on a silver platter. He did not go into the family business. He built his own with hard work. Romney is a good Samaritan. He quietly helps his
neighbors, a friend in trouble or a parent whose child is in the hospital. He saved the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. Guided Massachusetts out of economic crisis. Ann Romney explained that he is modest about his good works because he doesn’t do them to win political points; he does them because helping others is its own reward. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spoke of how his parents raised themselves up from poverty. How he gets his own plain-spoken bluntness from his mother, who was the family enforcer. She taught him that it was better to be respected than loved, because love without respect is fleeting, while respect can grow into real and lasting love. Christie delivered the tough-love truth about the difference between Democrats and Republicans: Democrats believe that people cannot solve their problems themselves, that they need government to do it for them. Republicans believe that we can fix our own problems with good values and leadership. In New Jersey, he inherited a history of raising taxes and an $11 billion dollar deficit. People said that it would be impossible, but Christie balanced the budget and lowered taxes. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee noted that in addition to the at least 13 percent of income that Mitt Romney pays in taxes, he gives 16 percent to charity and his church. Huckabee pointed out that for years, Vice President Joe Biden gave less than 2/10s of 1 percent to charity. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice observed that the Arab Spring is proof that the desire for freedom is universal. She argued that the world is a better place when America clearly and unambiguously stands for freedom and opportunity. It is a more dangerous and chaotic place when, as now, friends and foes don’t know where America stands. New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez emphasized that success is not something to be ashamed of or demonized — it should be celebrated. She explained how a little girl from a border town grew up to be the first Hispanic woman governor of a state. Her parents started a security guard business with nothing and grew it into a small business that employed 125 employees in three states. She went to law school, became a prosecutor, then the district attorney, then governor. As governor, she inherited the largest structural deficit in state history, but turned it into a surplus. Former Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Kerry Healy recalled

how as governor, Mitt Romney assembled a cabinet of the best and the brightest men and women, Republicans and Democrats. He cut taxes, improved education, and turned around a $3 billion deficit. Ryan, Romney's running mate, pointed out that the president has been in power for almost four years. Rather than use that power to make job creation his first order of business, he borrowed and wasted trillions of dollars on government programs like the stimulus and government-controlled health care. As a result, 23 million Americans are struggling to find work. Instead of accepting responsibility for that failure, Obama continues to blame the prior administration. Ryan promised that he and Romney will not duck the tough issues. They will take responsibility, reapply our country’s founding principles, limit federal spending to 20 percent of GDP or less, reform taxes and regulations, generate 12 million new jobs, and get the economy growing. Romney and Obama are both decent, honorable men. But they personify very different experiences of, and visions for, America. They provide us with a very real choice in November. The president puts his faith in government: the stimulus, bank bailout, bailout for Detroit, cash for clunkers, mortgage restructuring, and government mandated health care. Romney puts his faith in people’s ability to provide for themselves. Halsey Frank is a Portland resident, attorney and former chairman of the Republican City Committee.

Are Falmouth’s rules for all or none? By Chris Orestis During a Falmouth Town Council meeting on Monday, Aug. 27, the topic of a significant commercial sign on Route 1 that was built in violation of existing town ordinances was discussed. Specifically, the owner of the sign requested that the Town Council change the rules to comply with the non-conforming sign. Members of the council, including myself, were not happy with the idea that the town would change the rules that all other Falmouth business owners follow, to accommodate one business owner who has violated them. It isn’t fair to punish the business owners of Falmouth who follow the rules by rewarding one who did not. The definition of being a pro-business community is fair and equal application of the rules and regulations to ensure a level playing field. Exemptions, or outright changes to ordinances (as was requested) to fix violations is the antithesis of being a fair and business friendly environment. During the discussion it was suggested that a rela-
tively small fine might be imposed, and I specifically said any fine levied in this situation should “hurt,” so that it is a deterrent from this kind of behavior in the future. It is important that precedents are set in these situations so we do not encourage an environment where business and/or property owners begin to ignore rules and regulations with the anticipation all they need to do is pay a small fine, or a “parking ticket,” as just the cost of doing business in any manner they choose. This discussion and our resulting decision to seek a not insignificant fine as a course of action towards compliance have nothing to do with the individual business involved. To be a business-friendly community we must uphold the rules for everyone to ensure a fair and level playing field. As a business-friendly town, we can't operate from a standpoint that the rules will be changed, or a relatively small fine will be imposed, to accommodate violators. If the rules don’t apply equally to everyone, than they apply to no one. Chris Orestis is a Falmouth town councilor.

Council shows ‘malice,’ makes doing business too hard in Falmouth
By Stephen M. Woods On Monday, Aug. 27, Councilor Chris Orestis and the Falmouth Town Council held a public meeting to review a zoning amendment regarding “Property Identification Signs.” It should be noted here that this council item was a town-wide policy issue, as it was an amendment that applied to “business signage” — not me personally or my company, TideSmart Global. While the amendment is certainly relevant to an ongoing signage situation involving my business, the agenda item considered by the Town Council was a general ordinance matter. Yet for 47 minutes, I was personally referenced approximately 100 times — while the merits of the actual ordinance change being considered was not referenced even once. Not once. And during that 47-minute hearing, I was personally, professionally and politically insulted, disparaged, and slandered by you, Councilor Orestis, and others on the Falmouth Town Council in a manner that can only be described as an act of malice. (The video is available on Falmouth’s town website.) During the council meeting you made many comments pertaining to teaching me a lesson, making it “hurt,” while openly asking what could be done to “punitively punish” me. You made many references to not letting me or other businesses “get away” with anything, even going so far as to suggest that I should be forced to dismantle my entrance sign. Anyone watching your televised performance can see that yours were not the reasoned words of a thoughtful town leader. They were the petty and puny declarations of a small man with a bigger agenda to “hurt” a neighboring community leader, U.S. Senate candidate and Falmouth business owner. In the coming days when you’re driving down U.S. Route 1 in Falmouth searching out other “one-inch” signage infractions that warrant public pain and embarrassment for their owners, please take notice of the dozens of “For Sale” and “For Lease” signs that surround my building and are sprouting up all along U.S. Route 1 in Falmouth. These signs reflect a clear and meaningful manifestation that doing business in Falmouth is too hard. And last Monday night, you made it much harder. You, Councilor Orestis, and the entire Falmouth Town Council should be ashamed. More than accomplishing your stated goal of “hurting” me, you let down the people of Falmouth — residents and business owners. They deserve more from their elected officials. We all do. Stephen M. Woods is president of TideSmart Global in Falmouth, chairman of the Yarmouth Town Council, and an independent candidate for U.S. Senate.

While vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan was reading Ayn Rand, I was reading William James. Well, not at the same time, but just as Ryan’s young mind was receptive to and formed by Rand’s absolutist philosophy of self-interest, James’ New England philosophy of radical empiricism made more sense The Universal to me than anything else I read as a college student and it informs my thinking to this day.
I read Ayn Rand when I was a student and found her blackand-white thinking simplistic. What attracted me to the writings of William James was the way he was able to handle the shades of gray that color most of experience.
“Grant an idea to be true, what concrete difference will its being true make in any one’s life?” James asks. “How will the truth be realized? ... What, in short, is the truth’s cash value in experiential terms?” If I believe in God and the teachings of Jesus Christ will my life be better than if I do not? I believe so. That’s why I fight through my doubts and try to live into the Christ story, a story of forgiveness and selflessness. “Believe, and you shall be right, for you shall save yourself; doubt, and you shall again be right, for you shall perish,” writes James. “The only difference is that to believe is greatly to your advantage.” James proposed that “Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.”
Edgar Allen Beem
The fundamental philosophical dilemma that James helped me work my way through was how, in all intellectual honesty, I could profess a belief in Christianity given that my most profound perception of life is that no one is in possession of the truth. Anyone who claims to know the meaning of life or the mind of the Creator, be she a theoretical physicist or a metaphysical preacher, is deluded, a charlatan, or both. So my starting point is always this: we are all ultimately clueless. Given this one simple truth, how then do we live a meaningful life? Some folks seem to believe that God is necessary for a moral universe, that it is only our fear of God and eternal damnation that keeps us from living like barbarians. I don’t believe that at all. It seems to me that a code of human compassion and moral behavior would be even more necessary in a godless universe. We’re all in the same boat (or whirling through space on the same mysterious planet) without any clue where we are going or why, so let’s do what we can to take care of one another. Before I read William James, I read Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus. "The Stranger" is still my all-time favorite novel and I certainly understood the existentialists’ sense of the absurd, the meaninglessness of existence. But I still wanted to believe in the loving God of my Congregational upbringing and William James’ pragmatic philosophy helped me do so.
Truth then is relative. There is no objective reality, no absolute truth. We all know this in our bones, but we have a hard time accepting it in our minds. True ideas are just those that get us into better relationships with experience and with one another. My old philosophy professor Bill Gavin, a James scholar and a philosopher in the American process tradition, would probably shudder at my corrupted interpretation of the great man’s thought, but, hey, it works for me. Scientists, of course, would like us to believe that there are immutable and discoverable laws of nature, that only verifiable, replicable truths are valid, but science only describes the “how” of life, not the “why.” No matter how far out into the cosmos or how deep down into the microcosm you push the known, it is always dwarfed by the unknown. You can’t reduce life to a set of empirical facts. Science is every bit a belief system as religion. By the time a science major graduates from college, half the things he’s learned have been proved wrong. The idea that we create our own truths, that we transform reality by virtue of our beliefs has a distinctly Buddhist flavor to it, but it is central to my practice of Christianity. We are working for the transformation of this world into the kingdom of God. It is a very liberating and, I would argue, a very liberal way to live one’s life. And if you’re not trying to make the world a better place for all living things, what in heaven’s name are you doing here? Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

T W OD A YS A LE TWO WO DAY DA AY SALE SA “The officer didn’t read me my Miranda Rights. Does that mean my case will be dismissed”? This is one of the most frequently asked questions that I hear from folks charged with OUI and other criminal offenses. The answer varies from case to case. Here’s what you need to know: Miranda “warnings” are only required when and if you are in custody. Custody means that you are being restrained by a law enforcement officer to a degree that we would normally associate with “formal arrest”. Just being pulled over and asked some questions or to perform field sobriety tests is not enough. Although detained, you are not in “custody” for Miranda purposes. If the handcuffs go on, you are in custody. Each case, each situation must be analyzed on its own specific facts. Slight changes in specific circumstances can change the whole ball game. If and when you are in custody (ultimately that is a question for a judge to decide), the officer must provide you with your Miranda warnings prior to “interrogating” you. Interrogation means asking questions or engaging in any conduct that is designed to “elicit an incriminating response”. If you invoke your rights under Miranda (remaining silent, have a lawyer present for example), interrogation must cease. Again, the court is the final arbiter of what is interrogation versus simple administrative questioning. Violations of your Miranda rights are not dispositive of your case. The remedy, generally, is that the court will exclude the questions and answers from a potential trial in your case. Further, if you invoke your Miranda rights, that invocation can not be used against you at trial. The failure of the officer to provide you with Miranda warnings is just the tip of a large and sometimes complex iceberg. For a comprehensive analysis of the many complex issues in your case, call me for a free consultation at NICHOLS, WEBB & LORANGER 207-879-4000.

Obituaries Kenneth Harold Brown, 91: WWII vet, skilled stitcher FREEPORT — Kenneth Harold Brown, 91, died Aug. 21 at the Maine Veterans’ Home in Scarborough. He was born on July 1, 1921 in Pownal, the second son of Louise (Varney) and Edgar Brown Sr. Brown was educated in local schools and graduated from Freeport High School. During World War II he served in the U.S. Army and during the Battle of Brown the Bulge he was captured as a prisoner of war. Fifty-five years later he had the opportunity to attend a POW reunion in Pennsylvania and was reunited with his bunkmate. Brown was a hand stitcher for several Freeport shoe companies and his shoes were often used as samples by the sales team. He retired from L.L. Bean after 14 years in the distribution center. Brown was a New England sports fan, coached baseball, helped with the basketball booster club and served as the basketball scorekeeper for many years. Brown took great pleasure in his time spent with his family, be it playing Uno,
summer family vacations at Little Sebago Lake, lunch with his wife, Dot, or any time spent with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The couple never missed an opportunity to mark a special family occasion. Brown is survived by his daughter, Adena Stewart, of Raymond; his sons Frederick Brown and Richard Brown, of Freeport; his granddaughters Nadine Grosso and her husband, Vincent, of Gray, and Danielle O’Connell, of Raymond; his grandson, Dakota Brown, of Freeport; his great-grandchildren Jenny, Ava, and Ryan; his brother, Edgar Brown and his wife, Barbara, of Bangor; and his sister, Marilyn Groves, of Freeport. He was predeceased by his wife in 2009; his brother, Gerald Brown; and his sisters Claudia Pooter and Phyllis Rufus. A funeral service was held at Lindquist Funeral Home on Aug. 25 with the Rev. Sandy Williams officiating. Burial followed in Burr Cemetery in Freeport. For those who wish, donations may be made in Brown’s memory to a special fund for vets in need at: Department of Veterans Affairs Center, Veterans Affairs Voluntary Service #135, 1 VA Center, Augusta, ME 04330.

We called him three times that afternoon and every time he was right there. He really took the time to listen to our concerns and answer all of our questions. That was six years ago, and I’m healthy.

Fall’s forecast adds color, geometry to your style
By Carie Costello Bring on the color for fall 2012 – Pantone fashion colors for fall are French Roast, Honey Gold, Pink Flambé, Tangerine Tango, Ultramarine Green, Bright Chartreuse, Olympian Blue, Titanium, Rhapsody (violet), Rose Smoke. The fave for fall is Burgundy; this rich color is versatile and chic – as basic as black. Wear it with blue, forest green, pink, lime, and teal. And did you hear navy is the new neutral?
Style trends for fall are geometric and feminine. Designers are obsessed with prints such as paisleys, florals, checks, and plaids; they are seen in skirts, fall shorts, dresses, pants, shirts, blouses, jackets, and sweaters. Colorful lace is still attaching itself to collars, scarves, dresses, and skirts – it is sweet and sexy. Jeans are skinny and straight, rich in autumn toned colors and dark denim. Peppy peplums are literally popping up on tops, dresses, and shirts – this silhouette is definitely on this fall’s list-it’s flattering and feminine. Shine and all that glitters is making its way onto clothing, shoes, bags and scarves. Shoes are certainly not subdued this season – they are adorned with geometric detail, metal, and intense color. Look for color blocked wedges, menswear pumps (penny loafers), Chelsea (short) boots, tstrap heels, and over the knee boots.
Accessories are feminine, geometric, colorful and bold. Scarves fulfill all of these trends from lacy to graphic. Try a continuous loop, a color
blocked style, or a geometric pattern such as stripes and squares. Scarves are an economical way to bring color to a new or old clothing friend.

Big doings on football’s opening weekend By Michael Hoffer The opening weekend of the 2012 high school football season produced mixed results in Forecaster Country. The most seismic score came from Wales, where two-time defending Class C state champion Yarmouth saw its 24-game win streak snapped, 33-7, by the Raiders. Oak Hill returned the opening kickoff 79-yards to paydirt to make a statement. After a Clippers’ fumble, the Raiders scored again on a short run to take a 14-0 lead just four minutes in. “That’s the first kickoff returned against us in three years,” said Yarmouth coach Chris Pingitore, who was also making his head coaching debut. “Those hurt. And then the fumble down deep hurt and that really changes the momentum of the game.” An 80-yard TD scamper from junior Matt Klepinger appeared to get the Clippers back in the game, but instead, it was their high water mark. The Raiders took a 21-7 lead at halftime and scored twice more in the fourth period to account for the final score. Oak Hill rushed for nearly 300 yards as Yarmouth lost for the first time since Nov. 14, 2009 (41-7 at Dirigo in the Western Class C Final). “We’ve got a bunch of kids who haven’t lost since the sixth grade, so having their backs against the wall is something a little bit different for them,”
Jose LeIva / sun JournaL
Yarmouth quarterback Brady Neujahr is stopped by Oak Hill’s Kyle Flaherty during Saturday’s season opener. The Clippers’ 24-game win streak came to an end with a 33-7 loss to the Raiders.
Pingitore said. “They responded at times. We’ve got a young team. They’re still learning out there. I think defensively, we made Oak Hill work. Offensively, they certainly made us work.” Yarmouth looks to get in the win column Friday night when it welcomes up-and-coming Poland (a 27-26 overtime loser at Winlsow in its opener). The teams didn’t play last year. That game broadcast can be heard at mbr.org/
mbrradio/. Elsewhere in Western Class C, Freeport, which made the playoffs for the first time in 2011, played a marathon game before outlasting host Boothbay, 18-14, in its opener. The start of the contest was delayed 45 minutes by lightning and in the first quarter, the game was delayed again 45 minutes by more lightning. Once it resumed, the Seahawks
took a 6-0 lead, but the Falcons rallied to tie on a 2-yard TD run by senior Dan Burke. Freeport went up 12-6 on senior James Purdy’s 30-yard TD scamper, but on the final play of the first half, Boothbay scored and added a twopoint conversion to lead, 14-12, at the break. The Seahawks appeared primed to salt away the win in the fourth quarter when they returned a fumble to the Falcons’ 1 (senior Jared
Polley ran down the ball carrier to save the score in what proved to be the pivotal moment of the contest), but on the next play, Freeport blitzed, caused a fumble and junior Joe Nixon picked it up and returned it 98-yards for the winning score as the Falcons started 1-0 for the second year in a row. “It was an ugly game,” said Freeport coach Rob Grover. “It ended at 11:05 p.m. There were a lot of turnovers. They had seven turnovers and we only caused one, but we recovered six. We got the win. It’s always though there with the dirt infield. It’s like soup when it gets wet.” The Falcons look to start 2-0 Saturday afternoon in their home opener, versus 0-1 Sacopee (a 46-6 loser to Winthrop in its opener). Last year, Freeport beat the visiting Hawks, 47-18. “Their numbers are still low and they run the same stuff, but they have to be getting better,” said Grover. “We’ll be excited to be home.” In Western B, Greely opened with an emphatic 33-7 win at Spruce Mountain, avenging a heartbreaking opening loss from a year ago. The Rangers got an early break when senior Nick Maynard pounced on a muffed punt in the end zone for a quick 7-0 lead. After the Phoenix tied the score, senior Svenn Jacobson ran back a fumble 19 yards for a score to put Greely ahead to stay. A 1-yard continued next page
Fall sports season commences (Ed. Note: For the complete versions of the FalmouthCape Elizabeth girls’ soccer and Falmouth-Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth-Greely and NYA-Freeport field hockey stories, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer And we’re off. Another fall sports season began last week and early results suggest that local athletes and teams are in for plenty of triumph. Not quite every squad had begun play at press time, but most were underway. Here’s a glimpse:
Boys’ soccer The defending Class B boys’ soccer state champion Falmouth Yachtsmen had a big test in their opener and passed it, 1-0, over visiting rival Cape Elizabeth. Standout J.P. White had the game’s lone goal in the 72nd minute. Falmouth was home with North Yarmouth Academy Tuesday, visits Poland Friday and has a showdown at Greely Tuesday of next week. Speaking of the Rangers, they had no trouble with visiting Lake Region, 9-0, in their opener. Ted Hart scored three goals and Nick Shain added a pair. Greely was at Freeport Tuesday, then has a week to prepare for Falmouth’s visit on Sept. 11.
Freeport dropped a 3-2 home decision to Traip in its first game. Connor Dietrich and Zach Merrill had goals. The Falcons hoped to get in the win column when they welcomed Greely Tuesday. They go to Lake Region Thursday and return home Saturday to meet Fryeburg. NYA and Yarmouth produced a memorable battle in their mutual opener. The Panthers shot to a 2-0 lead thanks to a pair of early goals from Wesley Bright, but the visiting Clippers rallied as Thomas Sullivan scored before halftime and in the 73rd minute, Ben Decker scored on a penalty kick to forge a 2-2 draw, which is how the match ended. NYA returned to action Tuesday at Falmouth, goes to Wells Friday and visits A.R. Gould Tuesday of next week. Yarmouth played host to Lake Region Wednesday and welcomes Cape Elizabeth Saturday.
Girls’ soccer On the girls’ side, reigning Class B champion Falmouth won a thriller at Cape Elizabeth in its first test Friday afternoon. continued page 22 Falmouth junior Leika Scott fires a shot during the Yachtsmen’s regular season-opening 3-0 victory over Greely.
MIke strout / For the Forecaster
Football from previous page TD run from senior Drew Hodge, a 12yard Hodge-to-Maynard TD pass and Alex Moore’s blocked punt return for a score produced the final margin. Spruce Mountain put the ball on the ground 13 times, losing six fumbles. Greely was held to 167 total yards and under 2.5 yards per rush. “They had us going the first couple series, but that’s what our offense does is
we just keep on pounding,” Rangers coach Dave Higgins said. “It was a great game last year. They won by two points, but what we took from it is we came back and scored at the end. That’s what you want.” Greely will go for a 2-0 start in its home opener Friday versus 0-1 Lake Region (which fell, 40-29, to Fryeburg in its first game). Last year, the Rangers outslugged the host Lakers, 58-28. Falmouth wasn’t as fortunate in its first bid. The Yachtsmen went to improved Gray-New Gloucester and discovered just
September 6, 2012
how improved the Patriots have become. Falmouth went up, 7-0, early, but GrayNew Gloucester answered with 22 straight points and even a fourth period Yachtsmen TD wasn’t enough as Falmouth fell to 0-1 with a 22-14 loss. The Yachtsmen look to even their record
when they play their home opener Friday versus 0-1 Spruce Mountain. Last year, Falmouth handled the host Phoenix, 33-7.

The trade that saved the Red Sox By Bryan O’Connor Two weeks ago, I told you that the Red Sox were not only headed for their worst season since 1997, but that the future looked bleak, with bad contracts tying up payroll for years to come. Since then, things have gotten worse for the 2012 Sox. David Ortiz is back on the disabled list. They lost a game 20-2. At this point, they’ll almost certainly have the team’s worst record since the 1992 team went 72-90, if not since the 1965 team went 62-100. But things are looking up for the Red Sox. Boston had three unquestionably bad contracts on its books in early August, and a fourth that didn’t make sense unless the team was competitive. In perhaps the biggest Red Sox trade since Babe Ruth went to New York, and certainly the biggest waiver wire trade ever, the Los Angeles Dodgers claimed two of those bad contracts- Josh Beckett’s and Carl Crawford’s- and the other questionable one- Adrian Gonzalez’s, and took Nick Punto for good measure. Somehow, the Sox convinced LA to
part with a few prospects, including promising pitchers Rubby de la Rosa and Allen Webster, in addition to the salary relief. John Lackey is still owed $30.5 million over the next two years, and is a long shot to justify half of that salary. Aside from Lackey, the only players signed to the Red Sox after 2012 are Dustin Pedroia, the team’s best player, and Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz, its two best pitchers. As bad as they look right now, this
team has a solid core for the future with Lester, Buchholz, and Felix Doubront in the rotation and Pedroia and Will Middlebrooks anchoring the lineup. They’ll have difficult decisions to make with David Ortiz entering free agency and Jacoby Ellsbury in his final arbitration year, and they may be tempted to make a splash on the free agent market, with Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke up for grabs and more payroll flexibility than they’ve had in years.
Whatever the Red Sox choose to do in 2013, the future looks brighter today than it did when Josh Beckett was pitching every fifth day and Carl Crawford was playing every fifth month. Now let’s ship Bobby Valentine out of town and start winning again.

Fall sports from page 19 The Yachtsmen appeared in good shape when they took a 2-0 lead to the half behind two pretty goals from Villanovabound standout Caitilin Bucksbaum, but the Capers carried play in the second half and cut the deficit to one with 28 minutes remaining, Cape Elizabeth had some golden opportunities to earn an equalizer, but Falmouth goalkeeper Caroline Lucas came up huge and made sure the Yachtsmen got out of town with a 2-1 victory. “It’s my training,” said Lucas. “I owe a lot to my coaches. Especially throughout the winter. It’s instinct at this point. Obviously, the easier games are more comfortable, but these are what a goalie lives for. It’s more fun. We have some new people in there, but we worked as a team and pulled through. We have a great group of girls. Tight-knit. I love every single one of them. We work really hard at practice.” “Caroline came up strong for us,” Bucksbaum said. “She’s a great rock for our team. It was a really exciting game. It was good to play a great team first.” “It showed us our weaknesses and that there’s room for improvement, but we got a win over a quality team,” said Falmouth coach Wally LeBlanc. “It’s great to build off. I’m extremely pleased with our girls adjusting. We counterattacked and got a couple nice goals early.” Falmouth was back in action Tuesday at NYA. The Yachtsmen’s home opener is Saturday versus Poland. Next Tuesday brings a visit to Greely. Freeport’s first match was Tuesday at Greely. The Falcons host Lake Region Saturday and go to Fryeburg Tuesday of next week. Greely also began Tuesday, with a match versus Freeport. The Rangers host Falmouth next Tuesday. Yarmouth opened with a 2-0 home win over NYA. Tess Merrill scored both goals. The Clippers were at Lake Region Tuesday and go to Cape Elizabeth Friday. The Panthers got 24 saves from goalkeeper Scout Fischman in the loss. They hosted Falmouth Tuesday and play at home versus Old Orchard Beach Friday.
Field hockey Two-time defending Class C field hockey state champion NYA made an impressive statement in its opener against visiting Freeport. It took the Panthers a mere 110 seconds to break the ice and take the lead for good. NYA then put the game away in the second half, scoring twice, as it went on to a 3-0 victory. Freshman Juliana Tardif stole the show in her first varsity game. The Freeport native rattled the cage twice to help the Panthers open in style. Tardif’s rebound goal put NYA ahead to stay. “We had some good passes and being low on post and making cuts to get open helped,” said Tardif. “I anticipated where the play was going.” With 20:44 left in regulation, Tardif rebounded a shot to make it a 2-0 game. “I never tell anyone about my secret weapons,” said NYA coach Tracy Quimby, who didn’t mention Tardif in preseason discussions. “She’s got some good skills and speed. The kids have taken to her. She’s confident and head smart. She has a good command of the field and all the positions. She’ll do well anywhere.” The clincher came with 3:53 on the

clock. On a penalty corner, Marina Poole and captain Jen Brown executed a pretty give-and-go and Poole finished to make it 3-0. “Overall, I’m so proud of us,” said Tardif. “Coming in new, everyone’s been welcoming. I think we have a great team and we work well together. I’m so happy to be here at NYA. It’s amazing to be with these experienced girls. It’s a good start.” “I’m pretty happy,” said Quimby. “Being 1-0 is nice. We’re going to do well if we stay healthy. We have a few players who are getting healthy. We have strong players. I think our seniors will be the backbone for us. Twelve of them are back. Most of them played their first year of varsity last year.” NYA was at Traip Tuesday, welcomes Greely Saturday and goes to Old Orchard Beach Monday. Two days later, reigning Western B champion York pays a visit. Despite the loss, Freeport was bolstered by 12 saves from goalie Tallie Martin. “Obviously it was a tough opener with the defending state champs on turf,” said Falcons coach Sara Dimick. “They have the advantage since we’re not a turf team. There were some beautiful moments where we connected as a group. The change of speed of the game really was tough for the girls to adjust to. We had some opportunities. I was really proud that the girls played hard until the end. I want them to recognize that and make their stamina and fight last for the whole game.” Freeport evened its mark at 1-1 Friday with a 3-0 win over visiting Waynflete. Dayze Gaulin, Hannah Williams and Olivia Bubar had goals. Korissa Lavers had an assist. Martin saved four shots. The Falcons were at Sacopee Tuesday, play host to Old Orchard Beach Saturday and go to Poland Tuesday of next week. In Western B, Falmouth has dazzled in early action, blanking visiting Greely and host Cape Elizabeth by 3-0 margins. Against the Rangers, Mikey Richards, Leika Scott and Hayley Winslow all scored. “We worked as a team for the past two weeks,” Winslow said. “The 7 a.m. practices have paid off. Our midfield is really strong this season. The forwards had great tips. Our backs backed us up. Everything worked. It was a nice way to kick things off. This felt really good. We’re going to continue to get stronger.” “We have faith and believe in ourselves,” Scott said. “We have five seniors and six
juniors and a lot of swing players. We have a lot of depth. A lot of key players.” “We were a little slow at first, playing a lot of ping pong, but I think that was due to nerves,” added Falmouth coach Robin Haley. “The girls did a nice job settling down and we were able to put some things together and play like we had in the preseason.” In the win over the Capers, Dayna Vasconcelos, Jillian Rothweiler and Scott scored goals and Katie Cooleen paced a

I had high expectations for our team this year.” “We have a really strong defense,” said Cooleen. “I can trust everyone. Hillary (Nash) is a great goalie. We have certain positions that we cover (on corners), but mostly, it’s how (the other team) reacts and we react to what they give us.” “We have different players stepping up so far,” said Haley. “It’s just two games, but I’ll take it after what we graduated. I’m really pleased. It’s a good start.” The Yachtsmen played at Yarmouth Tuesday, return home to face Lake Region Thursday, then have a huge test Monday at nemesis York, the reigning regional champion. While Greely struggled in its opener, the Rangers know that brighter days are ahead. “We have some work to do,” said Greely coach Kristina Lane Prescott. “You can see (Falmouth’s) experience on turf.

Fishing from page 4 have to worry about it.” Under current federal law, fishing vessels must carry an emergency position-indicating radio, known as EPIRB; a lifeboat or life float; a flare kit; life jackets or immersion suits; a ring buoy; a fire extinguisher; a sound producing device and running lights. The at-sea inspections by the Coast Guard for such equipment, described as “voluntary,” will now become mandatory. Elliot Thomas, a lobstermen from
Yarmouth and board member of the Maine Lobster Fishing Safety Council, has been having the dockside inspections for years. “The exam showed me down to where things will chafe,” he said. “They do a remarkably fine job of getting people going. They actually work with you to make sure everything is ready to go.” He said that it goes beyond what someone might think of in terms of immediate safety needs — for example, showing how the routing of a wire might be improved.

Alaska Pacific Office and chief of the agency’s Commercial Fishing Safety Research and Design Program, said there are three key steps that can be taken to improve safety for people who fish commercially. She recommended all people working on the boats take an eight-hour marine fishing safety class, have a policy for use of life jackets and find one comfortable to work in, and maintain the watertight envelope by making sure all the doors and hatches are closed when coming back to fishing grounds. “The tagline I’ve been using is: ‘Take the class, put one on and shut the door,’” she said. “That pretty much covers it.” In Maine, in order to get a license, a fisherman must complete a safety course, which has helped create an awareness of safety, said Patrice McCarron, executive director of the Maine Lobsterman’s Association. “What we’ve tried to do is promote awareness,” she said, noting that MLA offers a discounted membership if the course is completed. “But, I would say the majority of people in the industry have not participated in these safety courses.” John Drouin, 47, of Cutler, who has been fishing lobster since he was 14 years old, said the new examination will help, but it’s difficult to get people to always do things
safely. “When I was younger, I was one of the ones who wasn’t for the requirements and I kind of bucked things,” he said. “It’s one of the things you just don’t like being told what to do.” Drouin has now been having the dockside inspections for about nine years, he said. Drouin, who is the chairman of the Maine Lobster Council, and his wife, Janine, who sits on the Maine Commercial Fishing Safety Council, said they think the required examinations are a good thing. But they also said the new regulations in the coming years could have some pushback because of the expense. “It’s a concern for everybody,” Drouin said. “We have a lot of expenses on maintenance, and fishing is expensive in general. It’s one of the things that discourages me.” For fishermen, Drouin said, no examination or regulation can protect you from danger; the best prevention is preparedness. “When you’re fishing, you just can’t pull over to the side of the road and wait for AAA to come and get you,” he said. “Accidents happen, but I don’t believe in accidents. Everything is preventable.” Tom Groening of the Bangor Daily News contributed to this report. Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

While no new negotiations between the ILA and the U.S. Maritime Alliance are scheduled, Humeniuk expects the parties will sit back down together. “If (the issues) get solved, they’re not going to get solved until the 11th hour,” he said. “Unfortunately for shippers, it’s uncomfortable because you don’t know what to do, but that’s the nature of the beast.” If a strike or lockout did occur, Humeniuk expects it would be “very short-lived” because the economic impact would be so dramatic that President Barack Obama would likely get involved.
from page 9 to retrain longshoremen for other jobs at the ports. Those issues don’t exist in Portland, he said. Automation is something happening at the big ports such as New York and Miami. Portland doesn’t have any particular issues in negotiation at the moment, he said. Other key issues at the failed talks were overtime rules and container royalties, which are payments dock workers receive based on the weight of the cargo, according to The Associated Press.

“It’s a successful route,” Agnew said. “The bus provides transportation for employees who couldn’t get to work otherwise. It’s a great service for very little cost.” In 2012, bus service cost the town $117,000. Voter approval of the referendum would force Falmouth to end its contract with METRO, effective Dec. 31, 2013, and prevent further financial support for the service, except as required to pay debts. Supporters and opponents of the bus service will have the opportunity to weigh in on the topic at a public hearing at the Sept. 10 Town Council meeting.
the law that requires those signatures to be removed.” Doyle and the signature collector gathered a total of 1,052 signatures, far more than the required 842. “Some were invalid because they had already signed, they weren’t registered to vote in Falmouth or the signature did not match their registration card,” Town Clerk Ellen Planer said. According to Steve Kirby, director of finance for METRO, bus ridership has gradually increased year after year since its inception in 2004. In the month of August, 7,149 people rode the bus along the Falmouth route and last year nearly 79,000 rides were recorded.

Schooner from page 1 and surplus materials, made significant progress in the early 2000s. But it hit a roadblock when the economy crashed and funding all but dried up. Arndt originally set up a five-year consent agreement with the town in 2005, after he put the project under nonprofit ownership, which put him out of compliance with the zoning laws. He has since
Woods from page 1 tification signs.” Instead, they spent 47 minutes specifically discussing Woods’ sign and potential fines because it is not in compliance. “This is not an idiot,” Councilor Bonny Rodden said during the discussion. “He doesn’t respect us, he doesn’t respect our rules and he doesn’t respect the business community.” Councilor Chris Orestis called for a “big ol’ fine” that would “hurt,” rather than a small fine he compared to paying a parking ticket. According to the town, TideSmart Global’s sign on Route 1 has been out of compliance since it was built in March 2010. Council Chairwoman Faith Varney said lettering on the word “Global” is 4 inches tall instead of the required 5 inches, and the height of the stone wall is 8 feet instead of the maximum 7 feet. According to a memorandum to councilors, in July of 2010 Woods approached the council for a zoning amendment to add a second sign and a month later the Community Development Committee began work on the amendment, which was approved in January of 2011. However, his sign was still out of compliance with the ordinance. Finally, in November 2011, Woods sought an amendment from the town requesting a change to the zoning to accommodate the signs. Councilor Teresa Pierce agreed to introduce the amendment in July. Woods said that although he wanted something done so that his sign would be in compliance, he did not want a second ordinance change. “Even though I’m impacted by this, and I want something done, I didn’t want the ordinance changed,” he said. “I just wanted a consent agreement and (have them) say, ‘your accent word is an accent
www.theforecaster.net received two extensions from the council, with the current extension ending at the beginning of next year. In order for the 75-percent-complete boat to be able to move, Arndt said the hull needs to be welded, which would be a significant expense because it requires specialized professionals to complete the job. Up until now, the Island Rover has relied mostly on in-kind donations and volunteer labor. Although the council’s decision is not legally binding for any future council, allowing the foundation to bring the issue up again, Chairman Jim Cassida said he wanted to “send a clear message” with their decision on the project. Cassida outlined a plan for the project to make it “trailer ready,” not necessarily ready to sail, which he hopes will move the boat off the property as soon as possible. The most significant piece of his plan includes an irrevocable letter of credit to assure no financial responsibility for the town’s taxpayers if the project is not completed in the agreed amount of time and must be removed from the property. “Although we all want Harold to be able to complete this project ... we have an obligation to enforce the code and make sure this project is in compliance,” Cassida said. word, it’s 4 inches instead of 5, OK.’” Woods said he is upset that the council spent so much time talking about how he isn’t following the rules. But Varney said councilors are equally frustrated that the process has continued for so long. “It’s sort of like the straw that broke the camel’s back and this is just one of several incidences when he has done something and then come to the council and said please approve this,” she said. Comments by Orestis specifically upset Woods. He said that as a taxpayer who spends his money with local businesses, employs residents and developed an otherwise unused property, being publicly disparaged is “egregious.” He said he wonders what kind of activity Orestis wants to discourage with potential fines. “You have somebody who has invested in the community,” Woods said. “I used to speak at the high school every year for Senior Day; I’ve donated to education funds; I’ve paid $79,000 in taxes in the last two years to Falmouth and have provided jobs. I have literally invested millions of dollars in Falmouth. What kind of behavior does he want to deter?” Orestis said that his comments were not directly aimed at Woods, but more specifically the business community at large. “I don’t think, at least for myself, I never disparaged him personally, I never think I used his name,” he said. “... (What I meant was) if there was going to be a fine, it needed to be a big fine; you can’t send a message to the other business owners who follow the rules (that you) reward people who don’t (follow the rules).” Both Varney and Orestis said that Woods took the council discussion too personally. “I think that he’s making the mountain out of the mole hill,” Varney said. “... The council is very frustrated and probably said some things that were a little beyond what they should have said, but he’s the one making the big deal.”

The amount of the letter of credit is unknown, pending an independent estimate, such as a bid, of what it would take to make the project movable, Cassida said. Although more than 25 people attended the meeting to hear the decision on the Island Rover, and Cassida noted that the council received a significant amount of feedback from the community, he said the issue was one of judicial responsibility for the council and public sentiment should have no bearing on the decision. Councilor Kate Arno was the most vocal critic of the project, citing neighbors’ concerns about safety and property values. Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/134154
Varney said that she does not believe a consent agreement is forthcoming. She said town staff has been directed to determine a possible fine. Town Manager Nathan Poore could not be reached Tuesday to discuss the probability of a fine.
“I don’t see enough sufficient capacity in the organization to complete the project, whether we have the letter of credit or not,” Arno said, noting that 10 of the 13 people in the neighborhood she has talked to do not support an extension. Arndt, who brought 43 neighbors’ signatures in support of the project, said the Island Rover still needs at least $150,000 to make it ready to sail. But he remains optimistic that he will have the boat ready to move within three years. “The building of the boat was a shortterm event that turned into a long-term event,” Arndt said. “I want it done as much as anybody.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow Will on Twitter: @W_C_Graff.
Although his office building project is now off the table, Woods said he thinks it is still possible to reach a resolution on the sign. “I believe in the law,” he said. “I believe in following the rules and I will continue to work with Falmouth to reach some sort of accommodation.” Amber Cronin can be reached at acronin@theforecaster. net or 781-3661 ext. 125.

Being the best means a lot to us. Putting our patients first means even more.
Earning Maineâ€™s #1 hospital ranking from U.S. News & World Report, as well as best for cancer care, gynecology care, nephrology care, urology care, and orthopedic care, is a true honor. This recognition, the latest in a series of awards, is all due to the professional and personal care we provide every day. While these achievements are a source of pride for all of us at Maine Medical Center, our source for inspiration will always be our patients.
