Footprint debate continues, Council reaches compromise By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — Public discussion continued Monday night about proposed changes to the town ordinance limiting the footprints of new commercial property in the Route 1 business district. At a Town Council meeting, Councilor Bonny Rodden led

a presentation outlining the changes. She said the council’s Community Development Committee hopes the new footprint limits will better define the character of the town, promote economic development, maintain diversity of use and discourage vacancies. In developing the footprint

limits, she said, the committee looked to other local communities and came up with a 30,000-square-foot restriction as a starting point. But by the end of Monday’s meeting, comments from residents and councilors had moved the limit to 50,000 square feet. Parker Sowles, son of Morong

Falmouth owner Bill Sowles, said that the recent expansion of his father’s business would not have been possible with the smaller limit. “A 30,000 limit is a deterrent (for businesses) that cannot be overcome,” he said. Councilors agreed and proposed restrictions ranging up to

By Alex Lear CHEBEAGUE ISLAND — The boating death on Sept. 21 of a longtime landscaper on the island has cast a pall over Chebeague, one resident said this week. David Hill, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, said Charles “Bill” Whetham had lived on the island for “quite a few years” while his children were growing up, and then moved to Brunswick. But in a way, he never left, Hill said, since Whetham maintained a landscaping business on the island and commuted back and forth between the two towns. “Taking that little boat back and forth was something that he did all the time,” Hill said. “It certainly wasn’t a one-shot deal or anything; he was very familiar with that crossing.” Whetham, 63, was operating a 14-foot aluminum skiff and traveling from Chebeague to Cousins Island, according to Sgt. Rob Beal of the Maine Marine Patrol, when the skiff was allegedly struck by a cabin cruiser owned and operated by Richard LeMieux of Scarborough and Foxboro, Mass. LeMieux, who is vice chairman of the board of the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath,

$2.88M bond goes to Yarmouth ballot By Will Graff YARMOUTH — A $2.88 million bond to renovate the Public Works Garage on North Road will be on the ballot Nov. 6. On Sept. 20, the Town Council voted to move the referendum to the ballot after months of discussion and revisions to the project. The proposal for the garage was scaled back significantly from earlier projections that put the price at about $7 million. The new, smaller project would add two bays for washing and maintenance, and buy land adjacent to the property to allow for future expansions.

The bond covers the cost of design and construction, as well as $375,000 to buy the adjacent land, Town Manager Nat Tupper said. The initial plan called for building a new garage in the same location and moving two sports fields to make room for the larger facility. The existing garage was built in the mid-1960s and handles all maintenance for town vehicles and equipment. It is also the home base for school buses and snow plow operations in the winter. Residents have raised concerns about the size of the project not being consis-

tent with the fabric of the surrounding neighborhood, which includes day care centers, a playground and baseball fields. Other residents wanted more buffering for light and noise, which Tupper said would be taken into account by the final design. A $1.5 million bond for a new turf field at Yarmouth High School will join the garage bond on the ballot. At its meeting, the council also approved spending $16,000 for a study that is part of the Royal River restoration project. That project could ultimately include the removal of the river's two dams.

The town will pay for less than 20 percent of the study's $88,000 cost. The remainder of the cost will be funded by grants from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Sewall Foundation, the Horizon Foundation and the Royal River Conservation Trust. The study should be underway this fall, before adverse weather sets in, Tupper said. Presentations of the findings will likely be held in early 2013, although some lab work and data on spring run-off may still be incomplete, he said.

Friends keep Haley’s headstrong legacy alive By Amber Cronin NEW GLOUCESTER — A sea of navy blue t-shirts took over the grounds of Pineland Farms last Saturday as the boisterous members of Team Headstrong dominated the seventh-annual Fight Back Festival. Team Headstrong was founded in 2010 by Tim Haley, the late owner of Haley’s Tire & Service Centers of Falmouth, after he was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in 2009. Before his death in February, Haley said he was inspired by his doctor’s advice to start exercising and took that advice and participated in the PanMass Challenge, a 192-mile bike ride across

Social issues, business approach separate House District 107 ballot By Will Graff YARMOUTH — Voters in state House District 107 will see two first-time candidates square off on the Nov. 6 ballot. State Rep. Melissa Walsh Innes, D-Yarmouth, annouced in February that she will not seek re-election, a position she has held since 2008.

Democrat Janice Cooper will face Republican Mark Hough for the vacated seat, in a race that pits federal government expertise against municipal experience. Cooper was a staffer for former Democratic Congressman Tom Allen, and worked for the U.S. House Judiciary Committee as legal counsel. She said skills she

learned at the federal level have prepared her for the role of state representative. “I know (being an elected official) is a different perspective than a staffer’s, but what you do learn as a staffer is how things get done,” she said. “How you build coalitions, how you find common ground, how you learn to compromise without giving in on important principles or effectiveness of the legislation ... I think those skills would serve me well in Augusta.” Hough has been a small-business owner in Yarmouth for 30 years, working as a contractor and co-owner of Huffy’s Sandwich Shop. He has also worked on the Town Council and various boards and committees, including the Cumberland County Advisory Committee. “It’s given me the experience of going through and voting on 10 major budgets,” he said. “Also in that world of local politics, it’s nonpartisan. I’ve always worked across the line, so to speak; there is no line. “It’s part of my training. My upbringing in politics is not to have party affiliation,” he said, noting that he will continue that way of working if elected to the Legislature. One of the most striking differences

between the two candidates is their positions on the referendum question about same-sex marriage. Hough is strictly against same-sex marriage and said he will vote against it. Hough “I don’t want to say it, but (the referendum) is like the dumbing down of America,” he said. “It takes the specialness away from marriage, I think. That’s a man and woman, and Cooper that’s what I believe. “Marriage was established for the results of a marriage, which are children and the family; being raised with a father and a mother is an important thing.” Hough could not be more specific about why he is against passage of the referendum, but said he can’t support it. “I don’t know if it really makes a difference or not,” he said.

Care without compromise.

from previous page Initially, Cooper said she was in support of civil unions for same-sex couples, but not necessarily marriage, and later changed her mind. “The difference is how society and a couple view the union. Marriage is of a different quality, a different significance, than a civil union,” she said. “It’s really a statement and commitment to the world at large and to each other. I don’t see any good reason why same-sex couples should not have that same right.”



truly in need. Because what happens is, if you take your dollars, spread them out too thin, you’re not going to be able to help the people (who) are truly in need.” Hough suggests better enforcement of timeframes on temporary programs, such as housing, except for the disabled and elderly. But he said support needs to be tapered off instead of abruptly stopped, discouraging people from earning too much. “We’ve hired people at the sandwich shop and they come in and work for a week, then discover that they’re going to lose their housing supplements, because they’ve taken a job,” he said. “They do want to work, but the system hinders them from working. Once you cross the threshold, all of a sudden, all your support stops, which is not really the right way to do it.”

Energy Both candidates support the development of alternative energy in Maine, but disagree about how that should be encouraged. Hough said the market should dictate which energy sources survive. Iams



“I support all types if they are able to stand on their own,” he said. “If the market is there for them, they will succeed.” Hough said he is particularly interested in the potential of geothermal and tidal power, seeing wind and solar as not economically viable on their own. Although Cooper supports the development of alternative energy sources and thinks they have potential, there are problems with all of them, she said. She said one example was the negative effects of wind turbines on nearby residents. But to get these technologies off the ground, they will need government support, she said. “There needs to be support. It doesn’t necessarily have to be state,” she said. “This is a national problem. I would hope the national government would provide those kinds of subsidies for the most part.” Her focus for energy development an the state level would be to encourage research and development among Maine universities and businesses, she said.

Although the candidates had different views about how to improve Maine’s social welfare programs, both said the money being spent now is not being used in the most effective manner. Health care is an area where Cooper thinks cost-cutting measures could be employed to spend dollars more wisely. “Our system of health care is the most expensive in the world. But compared to other industrialized countries, it has some of the poorest results, so we’re doing something wrong,” she said, noting high administrative costs and costly unnecessary testing. “All these things are very expensive, and when people are poor, the taxpayer is paying for that,” she said. “If we got a handle on that, I think that would lower the costs of social welfare programs enormously.” Drug abuse and mental illness are at the heart of much of the poverty in the state, Cooper said, although the economy has aggravated the problems. Maine’s spending on welfare programs has been too much for Hough, who said the money is spread too thin. “Historically, we’ve been too lenient with our social welfare dollars,” he said. “Clearly the changes we need (are) to have it run more efficiently for the people




The candidates also approach Maine’s ability to attract businesses differently. Hough said he is focused on minimizing regulation, seeing it as detrimental to the growth of small business. “We need to do what’s necessary for them, without the hindrances of regulations that are sometimes well-conceived, but harmful in the long run to Maine’s economy,” he said. Hough looks to alter land-use regulations and changes to recycling policies, which cost small businesses thousands of dollars every year, but do little to help the environment, he said. Cooper said Maine needs to focus on its ability to attract businesses and workers with its high standard of living and strong education system. “Kids should have the kind of training they need, particularly in math, science and technology, from teachers who have earned their degree in those areas,” she said. “We’ve got to have better connections with businesses in the community so we are training people for jobs that already

exist. We have to train our students to think critically and creatively so that if there is not a job waiting for them, they’ll know how to start one themselves.” Cooper said schools should challenge students with advanced placement and trade-oriented classes, and courses that include community-service projects.

Town councilor and banker face off in House District 106 By Will Graff FREEPORT — A town councilor and a bank manager will vie to replace the term-limited representative in the state House District 106 election. Rep. David Webster, D-Freeport, cannot run for re-election after representing Freeport and part of Pownal for four consecutive terms, opening up the race to new candidates. Democrat Sara Gideon and Republican Jody James, both first-time candidates, are looking to fill the vacancy. Gideon is vice chairwoman of the Town Council and has worked on vari-

ous committees and boards, including Freeport Community Services. She also has a background in advertising, and previously worked as an account executive for USA Today. In June, she beat out two other candidates in the Democratic primary to become the party’s nominee. James is the branch manager for Key Bank in Freeport and is a thirdgeneration business operator in the town. He also has worked for nowretiring U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe. James became the new Republican nominee after the initial candidate, Benjamin Martin, dropped out of the race this summer. James said his approach to Maine’s economic development rests on the idea of letting the market play things out, something regulations, taxes and bureau-

cracy prevent. “I think we’ve seen a lot of capital flowing into Maine, but there’s a lot red tape for getting access to those funds and getting that capital into hands of entrepreneurs,” he said. “Reducing taxes to keep businesses here and trying to get rid of income tax altogether would create an incentive to get people to want to move to Maine.” People and businesses respond positively to incentives such as tax reductions, which ultimately foster job growth in Maine, he said. Gideon said she wants focus on futureoriented industries that are viable and compatible for Maine. “We’re really built as an economy on the backbone of small busnesses here,” she said. “I think that what we really

want to do is look at those global industries of the future, like technology, clean energy and information technology, and figure out how can we help our existing small businesses James grow into those sectors and help new ones emerge as well.” Gideon points to the tidal turbine launch in Eastport as a model to follow. Creating closer ties with business and Gideon education would also be part of her plan to help promote job growth, she said.

Cumberland council OKs 3 new no-parking zones By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — The Town Council unanimously approved three new noparking zones Monday evening. The town’s traffic ordinance was amended to adopt no-parking areas on Orchard, Range and Whitney roads, all for road safety reasons. The council approved the Orange

and Whitney road zones as presented, although councilors agreed to reduce the distance of the Range Road proposal. That zone, near the Homeless Animal Rescue Team shelter on Range Road, was to have included a 670-foot area (28 spaces), on that road and the adjoining Route 100. The ban was prompted by high traffic speeds through the area, according to Town Manager Bill Shane. It was to have applied to the sides of the roads closest to the shelter. The shortened ban is now only 75 feet, covering three Range Road spaces between the shelter and Route 100. The town received about 20 emails on the matter in the days leading up to the Town

Comment on this story at:

Council meeting, Shane said. A 100-foot-long area along Orchard Road, across the street from the Orchard Hill Farm, is another no-parking zone, as is about 500 feet near Terrison’s Orchard on Whitney Road. That would eliminate 20 spaces, but there is a significant amount of parking area on the opposite side of the road, Shane said. Both orchard-related bans run from Aug. 15 to Oct. 15, while the ban near the shelter is year-round. Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@ Follow him on Twitter: @learics.

Welfare Although dependence on the social welfare system has become an “epidemic,” James said, he does not think now is the time to start cutting the programs. “We need these programs, we just don’t want it ot become a way of life for people,” he said. “It’s something that needs to be addressed, but it’s not realistic until you get the economy turned around.” James said in the meantime, government should create incentives for people “to get back on track and to get off the government dole.” But Gideon said the state does not spend too much on social programs and thinks the focus for reducing poverty should be on education. “There’s been an identification that we’re spending too much on welfare, but instead of tackling the real problems, we’re simply cutting people off and probably creating more problems,” she said. “We need to make sure we continue to invest in education that is going to help break the cycles of poverty.” Gideon said she would like to see funding restored for early education and to create public pre-kindergarten education across the state.

is to promote programs that support efficiency and conservation to lower energy costs. “Before we start thinking about making an alternative plan with alternative energy, we should be looking at how government might be able to help on state and on a federal level,” she said. She said she supports incentives for people to weatherize their homes and would likely support some subsidies for the development of alternative energy sources, but would be careful about how that money was spent. “I think everything we do needs to be with an eye toward 20 to 25 years in the future, and it has to be done with the strongest environmental foundations laid in place,” she said. Natural gas is an important energy source, she added, but it should not be relied upon too heavily. James supports all forms of alternative energy, but doesn’t supposrt any forms of subsidies. “We are in the midst of an energy boom in this country and I think we should look

at all forms of energy,” he said. “My thinking is that I’m a huge proponent of the free market and what I’m not for is picking winners and losers and subsidizing industries that (the state) prefers.” Natural gas is an energy source with potential, he said. “I’m a huge proponent of natural gas,” James said. “We have an abundance of that in this country. It’s a much cleaner fuel source and it’s something that we control. We’re not held hostage.” Although the process of extracting natural gas by hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” has been shown to pollute the water and air, James dimisses those claims. “With natural gas, and where we are in history, I think the jury is still out on fracking,” he said.

Who am I to force my views on anyone? It’s up to the people to decide.” Gideon said she will vote yes on Question 1. “I believe all people have the right to marry,” she said. “It’s pretty much as simple as that.”

Unsung Hero: Edith Aronson, bringing educational vision to Freeport By David Treadwell FREEPORT — Edith Aronson, the daughter of a successful international businessman, grew up in a world of privilege. She lived in London and New York, was educated at elite independent schools, and graduated from Harvard with a history major. “We had a close family with a wonderful set of values,” Aronson said. “We learned the importance of giving back to others. And I got a fabulous classical education.” After Harvard, she headed to Los Angeles, where she was a successful television scriptwriter. “I was good at it,” Aronson said, “but I hated it. I needed something more.”

For that “something more,” Aronson turned to education. She earned a teaching certificate from the University of Indiana, where she helped a noted professor produce teacher-training videos. She then taught sixth grade for six years in Westbrook, took some time off to earn her masters in education from Harvard, and returned to Westbrook to continue teaching. In 2001, Aronson quit her teaching job, Diane HuDson / For THe ForecasTer

Say no to discrimination and yes to marriage equality By Russell Anderson When I was 8 years old (circa 1960), my family took a vacation trip to Washington, D.C., and Williamsburg, Va. I have many fond memories of that trip, but the incident that sticks in my mind more than 50 years later is not so fond. We were in a public facility somewhere in Virginia – it may have been a bus station or a visitors center, I can’t recall exactly. I needed to use the bathroom and saw that I had two choices: “Men’s Room White” or “Men’s Room Colored.” Being an innocent and somewhat naive 8-year-old, I thought the distinction referred to the interior decor, and naturally I chose the “colored” option. Why enter a room where everything is a boring white color when I could enjoy what I imagined to be a bright room with multi-colored walls and fixtures? The reality of course was quite different. Not only was the “colored” room not brightly colored and pretty, but it was dull, dirty and generally quite unpleasant. How could the signs be so wrong? After completing my business, I left the “colored” men’s room and immediately complained to my father that the signs were misleading. Whereupon he explained to me that, unfortunately, in the South, black people were still required to use separate bathroom facilities from white people and that the distinction in the signs related not to the interior decor, but to the color of one’s skin. I recall being befuddled by this answer, but I knew in my head and in my heart, even at the young age of 8, that it was just plain wrong to discriminate against a group of people because of who they are. Fast forward to the 1990s. I am now a senior executive with UNUM Life Insurance Co. and have been asked to take a leading role in UNUM’s Diversity Awareness initiative. We organized a series of conversations designed to help all employees better understand the perspectives of various minority groups employed at our company and a part of our community. One of these conversations involved several members of the gay and lesbian community. We asked questions, they offered information, and it was an intense and extremely educational experience about the kind of discrimination that gay people face, and the fear they live with daily. Among other things, we learned that this is not a lifestyle “choice,” but that being gay – or not – is a characteristic we are all born with and is therefore an inherent part of who we are. During this conversation a young woman described her experiences as a gay woman in our society. I will never forget the tears in her eyes, or the pain in her heart, as she described the experience of being completely

rejected by her parents and most of her family when she told them she was gay. Fast forward one more time to the present. This November, Maine residents will vote on whether to allow gay couples to marry. State ballot Question 1 will remove a remaining form of unjust discrimination against a group of citizens simply because of who they are. Critics say that, if passed, this measure will undermine the institution of marriage and confuse our children. I couldn’t disagree more. At the age of 8, I was confused by the presence of discrimination, and would have fully embraced its elimination. We should be teaching our children tolerance, acceptance

I mean, do we ever forget our first real jobs? Our first attempts at making our own money? Our first stab at some brand of independence? Mowing lawns. Babysitting. Waiting tables. Washing dishes. Putting doughnuts into paper boxes and tying them up with Sandi Amorello string. No. I think not. So, as I put my shoes back on and reluctantly get into my car yet one more time to retrieve my ambitious son from his place of employment (while 98 percent of my friends are already warm and cozy in their beds) I have flashbacks of my own lovely mother, Louise, awakening at the break of dawn in order to dutifully transport me to my high school job, which if I recall, began at the ungodly hour of 6 a.m. For a family of natural-born night owls, this was obviously quite painful for all concerned. Oh sure, my mother would act pleasant enough, but it was just that – an act. She was a good cheerleader. And a dedicated mom. Aside from the early rising issue, the bakery gig was

of those who are different, and the evils of discrimination. As far as the institution of marriage, well, I have been married for 34 years and I know this will not weaken my marriage. With 50 percent of marriages ending in divorce, and Hollywood celebrities changing spouses almost as often as the seasons change, the institution of marriage does need to be strengthened. And it will be strengthened when we open it up to all loving couples by passing the Marriage Equality referendum this November. Russell Anderson is a Falmouth resident and business consultant.

really pretty sweet: free doughnuts, sneaking into the walkin fridge to gobble handfuls of freshly washed, perfectly ripe strawberries, butter cookies, eclairs, rugelach, delicate chocolate cakes filled with fresh fruits and real whipped cream. For a girl with a high metabolism and a sweet tooth, what was there not to love? In full disclosure, my upscale “bakery girl” job wasn’t my first true venture into the working world. I had, prior to that, decided I could achieve extraordinary levels of personal wealth via the sale of holiday candles and Christmas cards. And so there I was, walking the streets with my sample books and catalogues as the sun set in the chilly autumn sky, knocking on neighborhood doors, attempting to charm people into ordering personalized cards with fake sparkly snow or evergreen boughs, or candles in tall, iridescent glass cylinders, emblazoned with snowflakes and candy canes. It was an interesting work choice for a rather shy girl. But somehow, the idea of entrepreneurship appealed to me. Clearly, it’s in my blood, because I’d still rather charm strangers into purchasing candles adorned with elves than clock in for a corporate paycheck. In an apparent act of rebellion to my years at the bakery, I moved on to something far more “earthy” – a job at a small, local fish market/restaurant. My friend was the waitress. I worked the counter. Yes. I was a fish girl. It was smelly and cold. And I didn’t last long. When I picked up my pile of fish-store work clothes to put into the laundry hamper the morning after my shift, and got a full-on whiff of Charlie Tuna, I knew this career path would not bode well for my dating life. And so, I was out of there. Doughnuts and candles seemed far more lucrative, in hindsight. To this day, if a career choice will potentially interfere with my love life, forget it. I mean, let’s keep our priorities straight. And so, with a plethora of personal teenage employment tales under my belt, I am now witness to my offspring beginning their own journeys into the world of money making. And it’s rather wonderful. Seeing them gaining some independence – along with pride and a growing bank account – is a lovely thing. And although I admittedly don’t relish not being able to get into my jammies until midnight (if I’m not getting home until the wee hours, I’d prefer it to be because I was out on a hot date), I do love seeing the look of satisfaction on my child’s face when he proudly displays his paycheck and shares precious tidbits of his life on our late-night rides home. And so long as none of them ask me to drive them to gut fish somewhere at 5 a.m., I’m 100 percent supportive of their ambitions.

Moriarty in House District 108 We are writing in support of Steve Moriarty's candidacy for state House of Representatives in District 108. We have lived in Cumberland for more than 30 years and have had the good fortune to observe Steve’s service as a longtime member of the Town Council. When an issue is before him, Steve does not come to the table with pre-conceived notions. He has done his homework by reviewing the documentation provided, but before making his decision he asks balanced questions with an eye towards fiscal responsibility. When registering his vote, Steve subsequently explains his decision with insightful and measured comments. One cannot help but admire Steve’s service, which is marked by fairness and eloquence. As residents of District 108, we would be lucky to have Steve represent us. Spence and Susan Bisbing Cumberland

Falmouth should re-elect Nelson I am writing to express my wholehearted support for Rep. Mary Nelson in House District 112. Mary served on the House Education Committee when I was chairwoman of the Falmouth School Board, and I was personally able to witness her well-reasoned approach to issues that were coming before her committee. Having served on both the Falmouth School Board and the Falmouth Town Council in the past, Mary understood completely the impact the legislation would have on the people of Falmouth. On controversial issues, Mary did not take the easy way out, but would question and probe all sides of an issue in an attempt to find a fair solution that worked best both for our town and for the people of Maine. Mary brings intelligence, dedication and a balanced approach to the enormous issues facing our state. I’m thankful to have someone of her caliber who is willing to serve. Beth Franklin Falmouth

Cumberland, N. Yarmouth deserve better from board I encourage citizens of Cumberland and North Yarmouth to pay close attention to the School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors and to share with them your perspectives and expectations for their stewardship of our outstanding school district. The great accomplishments we have achieved in building an educational system of exceptional quality at a very reasonable cost are indeed at risk.


I attended the Sept. 19 board meeting and was greatly dismayed by what transpired. The board had been unable to elect a new chairman, disagreeing on this and other matters since their initial retreat in July. What I observed was a spectacle beyond all reasonable expectations. The meeting was marked by open hostility, disrespect for the chairman and superintendent, disregard for rules of order, theatrical stunts involving sham nominations and resignations, bluffs, and bluster. Their final decision to proceed with co-chairmen entrenches the deep philosophical differences that now exist on the board and lays the foundation for ongoing divisiveness and bickering. The tremendous quality and value of our school district evolved from the committed and consistent efforts of many citizens of Cumberland and North Yarmouth over the years. This result is consistent with the board’s mission and reflects the standard we expect the board to sustain. It would be a travesty if the board in its current constitution turns back the clock and dismantles these achievements by feuding over costs and programs and micromanaging our administrators. Our children, dedicated school staff, and experienced administrators deserve so much better than this. John Campbell Cumberland

North Yarmouth should stay in SAD 51 North Yarmouth is no more prepared to run its own school system then I am to run a triathlon. This warrant got on the ballot without a single opportunity to openly and publicly discuss the proposal. After a little encouragement, selectmen have called public meetings to be held on Oct. 10 and 17. Hopefully you are able to attend these, and then perhaps you will see the practically of voting no in November. My concern is that residents who are hoping we can continue to have at least one School Administrative District 51 building our town felt that this was the solution, and that it would also save taxpayers money. I do not believe for one second that it will work that way. Jeanne Chadbourne North Yarmouth

Gideon will fight for Democrats’ ideals If, as a Democrat, you are looking for someone who will fight for the issues we care deeply about, I hope you will join me in voting for Sara Gideon in House District 106. I am upset that Gov. LePage is calling hard-working


state government employees “corrupt,” and blaming our economic woes on those in poverty. It is not enough to send a Democrat to Augusta, we need to send someone with a track record of getting results when championing core convictions. Through her community and public service, Sara Gideon has stood up for what is right, even when criticized for doing so. When Sara says, as our state representative, she will fight for marriage equality, economic fairness and uphold hard-fought environmental protections, I know we are in good hands. Jessica Mellon Freeport

Re-elect Nelson as Falmouth state rep

As long-time Falmouth residents, we are proud to support state Rep. Mary Nelson for re-election. Mary’s focus on education, the environment and a businessfriendly state has helped our communities, our children and our people. Mary has always brought good judgment and balance to the difficult issues facing Maine. Mary's long and effective service to Falmouth on the Town Council and at Maine Municipal Association prepared her well for her role representing Falmouth in Augusta. It is important to our future to retain her experience and wisdom in the Legislature. We are pleased to vote for Mary Nelson on Nov. 6. Jean and John Gulliver Falmouth

Gideon went to bat for Freeport teen center

I am writing to give my appreciation and personal endorsement to Sara Gideon in her bid to become state representative in House District 106. As the PORT Teen Center Coordinator, I appreciate the citizen-centric outlook to governance and ability to find collaborative solutions to issues that are of core importance to Freeport that Sara has brought to the Freeport Town Council. I am confident she will bring these assets to the state level. Specifically, I would like to cite Sara’s interest and role in addressing the center’s budget shortfall last spring, a shortfall that threatened the nonprofit afterschool program with closure. When PORT supporters came to Sara with their needs, Sara listened intently and thoughtfully helped craft a successful, communitywide solution involving councilors, businesses, citizens, and the School Board. Sara has displayed leadership, a commitment to serving our youth, and incredible followthrough to ensure that needs were met. Evan Kumagae Freeport

Keep North Yarmouth in SAD 51

As I watch my 1-year-old teeter around our home I feel as though the carpet is being ripped from under her tiny feet. With the referendum to leave School Administrative District 51 less than two months away, I worry about the future of my daughter’s education. I am concerned that N o r t h Ya rmouth’s community appeal will diminish greatly without a strong school district. As that appeal sunsets, I worry the result will be a corresponding decline in my property value. I now sense that my family is not welcomed here by everyone, as if we are the growth that petitioners are attempting to curb. Reduced taxes would be appealing; however, abandoning SAD 51 may ultimately cost more money. Attempting to gain financially by curbing the growth of our town strikes me as flawed. And improving education by starting from ground zero seems devoid of reason. We will vote no to withdrawal. Ben Enos North Yarmouth

Moriarty for District 108 state rep

leader and a team player, he does not stop until the job is done (and he apparently requires very little sleep). Chris has valuable real-world experience that he can bring to Augusta. Please join me in voting for Chris Tyll for Maine’s District 11 state Senate seat in November Barbara Seelen Falmouth


We have known Steve Moriarty for many years. Phil served a number of years with Steve on the Cumberland Town Council, and Mary had “official” dealings with him when she was a member of the School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors. Steve is a tireless and selfless public servant who in his many years on the council has always sought to do what is in the best interest of Cumberland, but is also a patient listener and thoughtful decision maker. His approach to government is practical, not ideological. With his extensive experience at the municipal level, he is more than ready to move to the Statehouse, where he will continue to represent local interests, and will also make a valuable contribution to state government. We can’t imagine anyone who is better qualified to be a state representative in District 108 than Steve Moriarty, and urge readers to support him on Nov. 6. Philip Gleason & Mary Schendel Cumberland

Right goal, wrong strategy from Beem While I agree with Edgar Allen Beem’s goal of ending hunger, as expressed in his column of Sept. 12, I believe his solution of a tax on meals at restaurants is not necessarily the best approach. People who would give freely if they were aware of Maine’s hunger problem may react negatively when that “giving” is enforced through a tax. Just like Mr. Beem said in his column, “once the people of Maine learn the extent of the problem, they will want to help their hungry neighbors.” What we need to do is make sure that everyone in our communities understands the severity of the situation, and also understands that if they have anything to give, be it time, money, or food, it can make a big difference. There is currently a disconnect between those who are poor hungry, and everyone else. Healing that divide is even more important than just throwing money at the problem. If we can bridge that gap, we will never have to “eat, drink and feel guilty.” We will be able to take joy from every meal, knowing that through the efforts of our communities, no one is going without. Jordan Ossie Portland

Criticism of Beem unwarranted Recently, Mr. Leary, from Higgins Beach and “Away,” wrote a scathing note about Edgar Allen Beem. Leary stated that Ed writes “Nasty, mean-spirited, hate-filled” comments that are “consistently obnoxious.” Just out of curiosity, Mr. Leary, why do you bother to read them? Edgar writes excellent articles for Downeast and Yankee magazines, and has also published wonderful books. It is hard for me to believe that if Mr. Leary travels all over New England, he “has never encountered a columnist as consistently obnoxious as Mr. Beem.” What type of papers do you read, Mr. Leary? My family and I know Edgar from Church. Rain or snow, Ed waits at the street to assist Dad with his wheelchair. His columns are not intended to insult people, just make them think. My folks are pretty open-mined Republicans, respecting changes of the times. Often Mom rolls her eyes about Ed’s writing and laughs, but still thinks the world of him. He is a wonderful man, has a great wife and daughters. Please, Mr. Leary, open up or stop reading Edgar’s column. Phil Caldwell Yarmouth

The rich versus the rest of us Mitt Romney is so out of touch with the lives of everyday Americans that he thinks middle income means people who earn between $200,000 and $250,000. My guess is he is so far off simply because he doesn’t know anyone who earns such a paltry sum. And he can’t begin to The Universal imagine how he and his profligate family could possibly survive on, say, $49,693, the actual median household income in Maine last year. People who earn $250,000 are in the top 5 percent by income. That’s perfect, because the top 5 percent is about all Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan plan to represent should hell freeze over and these Edgar Allen Beem two apostles of greed descend to the presidency and vice presidency. Richie Romney has hardly worked a day in his life. His wealth now is all unearned income. It’s called unearned because you don’t have to work for it. It’s basically welfare. You just collect it. It’s like winning the lottery, and it should be taxed like lottery winnings. But because the U.S. Congress is a rich man’s club, labor (earned income) in this country is taxed at a higher rate than capital (unearned income). In a just society, it would be just the opposite. The bogus rationale for lower taxes on unearned investment income is that the rich are job creators. But if that were true, given the tax breaks we’ve been giving the wealthy, the U.S. should have an unemployment rate of zero. The rich are not job creators. They also do not work harder than the rest of us. They are just more fortunate. But the Romney-Ryan message that money is


made the Route 1 area such an ugly sprawling and economically under-performing commercial district. The current planning has clearly failed the community. Dench would have us continue requiring lining up more poorly planned “strip centers” with seas of parking lots, but also add more big-box Wal-Mart-style stores. The Town Council is right to move forward with proven, common-sense smart-growth planning that would help

merit and, therefore, we should lower income taxes on the rich and do away with inheritance taxes and capital gains taxes that punish success resonates with the idle rich. They, like Romney, actually believe that the 47 percent of Americans who do not pay taxes are social leeches who see themselves as victims and think the government owes them a living. Hey, Richie Rich, most of those people are Americans who worked hard all their lives and paid into a Social Security and Medicare system you and your ripped running mate want to gut for fun and profit. The 47 percent you disparage are not the parasites in this country, Mr. Romney, you and your One-Percenter buddies are. I am not personally a member of Romney’s 47 percent. I pay taxes at a higher rate than he does. But, yes, I do regard myself as a victim. If you haven’t figured out since the financial meltdown of 2008 that we are all victims of corporate greed, that Wall Street speculators and unregulated bankers drove the economy over a cliff and took all of us along with them, you are truly beyond hope. And of course that’s just what Romney-Ryan Republicans hope and are banking on – the ignorance of the American people. There aren’t nearly enough smug, self-satisfied country-club conservatives to win a presidential election, but if they spend enough money to persuade enough tea party conservatives, social conservatives, and, oh yes, anti-Obama racists to vote against their own best interests, maybe they can buy this election. On Nov. 6, it really is going to be Romney and the rich against all the rest of us. If you make less than $250,000 a year and you vote for Romney, you are indeed a victim.

Robert A. Whitmore, 93 FREEPORT — Robert A. “Popeye” Whitmore, 93, died Sept. 13 in his sleep. He was born in Claremont, N.H., on Nov. 30, 1918, the son of Ernest and Luella (Stowell) Whitmore. He was very fond of taking long trips, particularly on holiday weekends, visiting with family and old friends along the Whitmore way, until his health deteriorated to the point that riding was too tiring and uncomfortable. During World War II, he owned a small trucking company until the industry declined. After the war, he came to Maine and found his calling in the construction industry. He worked in that field for 50 years and inspired his son to follow in those footsteps for 45 years. He retired from Blue Rock Industries at the ripe age of 75, declaring in the end, “It wasn’t my idea to retire.” He was very proud of his work, his accomplishments, the great people he worked with, and of the customer base that he helped to build and retain. He was very proud of the inscribed watch he received for 20 years of service. He was a congregant of Sacred Heart Church in Yarmouth and a proud member of the Brunswick Maine Lodge of Elks. Whitmore was predeceased by wives Phyllis and Yvonne; his parents; a brother, William; his sister, Lois; his daughters Penelope and Nedra; and his son, Daryl. He is survived by his son, Dale and his wife, Diane, of Freeport; his daughters Noreen McQueeney, of Brunswick, Joanne Gillies, of Portland, and Sandra Astley and her husband, Don, of Putney, Vt.; and a large number of grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. The entire family extends a heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Community Health and Nursing Services Hospice for their tremendous help, care, and encouragement. A funeral was held Sept. 18 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Yarmouth followed with burial in Holy Cross Cemetery, also in Yarmouth.

Roland Stockwell Moxcey, 95 YARMOUTH— Roland Stockwell Moxcey, 95, died on Sept. 14 in Mesa, Ariz. Moxcey was born March 1, 1917 to Harold and Nellie Stockwell Moxcey in Yarmouth. He graduated from the North Yarmouth Academy with honors. While working in Portland, he volunteered so serve as a civilian worker in Pearl Harbor. There he met Helen Dickinson and they were married in 1946. When they returned to the mainland, he went to work for the Magma Copper Company in Superior, Ariz. He retired in 1980 after 30 years with the company. The Moxceys lived 10 years in Superior, and then moved to Apache Junction. He was active in the Boy Scouts and church. He moved to Mesa in 1986 to be nearer to his family. Moxcey is survived by his wife, Helen; a sister, Mary M. Burns, of Yarmouth; a son, Richard; a daughter, Diana Rowe;

Obituaries two grandsons, Christopher and Michael; a granddaughter, Jessica Peterson; and three great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held Sept. 18 at Mountain View Funeral Home Chapel in Mesa, Ariz.

Karen M. Erskine, 72 FREEPORT — Karen M. Erskine, 72, died Sept. 19 at Gosnell Memorial Hospice in Scarborough after a long illness. She was born Feb. 29, 1940 in Portland, daughter of Edith and Allen “Bucky” McLean. Erskine worked at Pineland for 18

years until the facility closed. She was known as “Nana” to many in Freeport after a decade of volunteering at Morse Street School. She received the Maine Principals’ Association Service to Erskine Maine Youth Award in 2009 for her work as a reading mentor for first graders. She is survived by four children, Donald

Former standout Seaver new Greely boys’ basketball coach By Michael Hoffer CUMBERLAND—When Ken Marks stepped down last month as the Greely boys’ basketball coach after 25 seasons, 346 victories and three Class B state championships, the program didn’t have to look far for his replacement. The new Rangers head man is Travis Seaver, who led Greely to back-to-back state championships as a player in the late 1990s and has served as the program’s junior varsity coach the past seven seasons. Other than spending his college career playing at St. Joseph’s College, Greely is the only program that Seaver has known and he can’t wait to put his stamp on it. “I’m really excited,” said Seaver. “I have a lot of passion for Greely basketball. It’s in

my blood. (Coaching Greely is) something I always thought about doing, but I thought we’d squeak a couple more years out of Ken.” Seaver inherits a program that is a perennial contender in Western Class B. A year ago, the Rangers were upset by Lincoln Academy in the preliminary round and finished 13-6. With an abundance of talent set to return this winter, Seaver knows he’s stepping into a great situation. “It’s a very unique opportunity,” Seaver said. “Familiarity with the players and program is a huge thing. Greely’s well established. Blessed to have talented teams over the years. We should be talented going forward.” Seaver said that while he brings “new blood,” he doesn’t expect players and fans will notice much difference between his style and the coach who paced the sidelines

for the past quarter century. “There will be overlap,” Seaver said. “I played and coached for Ken. He’s been a great mentor. It won’t be a dramatic change for the kids in the program.” Marks feels that Seaver was the perfect choice.

“I think he’ll be a great successor,” Marks said. “He has a passion for basketball and for Greely high school. He has a tremendous knowledge of the game, a competitive fire, youth and he brings the family concept to Greely basketball. He has a great deal of pride for the program and I see that continuing. He has a great reputation and great rapport with the players and parents. I felt he was the right guy.” Greely athletic director David Shapiro echoed Marks’ thoughts and said that while there were several strong applicants, Seaver stood out. “Travis was appealing on several levels,” said Shapiro. “He’s a Greely graduate. That’s big. He’s been in our system as a coach for seven years. Just as important is his knowledge and enthusiasm for the game. He has

a really good connection with the kids. Everyone on the (selection) committee was impressed with him. He’s not different from his predecessor, but has his own personal touch. There’s a great program in place and he’s a big piece of that. He’ll be the face of Greely basketball.” Seaver, 31, works for an investment firm in Portland and lives in Cumberland with his wife, Jennifer, who also played basketball at St. Joe’s. The Seavers have 14-month-old twin daughters.

Girls’ job still open

Shapiro said that the vacant Greely girls’ job will be filled by early next month. The search has been reopened and will close Sept. 26. Sports editor Michael hoffer can be reached at Follow him on twitter: @foresports.

Stretch run begins for fall teams (Ed. Note: For the complete FalmouthYarmouth boys’ soccer, Falmouth-Yarmouth girls’ soccer, Falmouth-Greely field hockey and Greely-Biddeford volleyball game stories, please visit By Michael Hoffer With the colors changing and the temperatures dipping, it’s clear that fall is in the air. With September about to give way to October, it won’t be long until we’re talking about the postseason for local athletes. The golf regular season ends this week, we’re just a couple weeks out from the start of the cross country postseason and soccer, field hockey and volleyball are closer to the end of their regular seasons than the beginning. Here’s a glimpse at where teams stand and what’s to come.

Falmouth senior Cooper Lycan gets the better of a collision with Yarmouth junior Wes Crawford during the teams’ palpitating 2-2 draw Saturday night.

Act one of the 2012 version of the best rivalry in southern Maine high school sports, Falmouth-Yarmouth boys’ soccer, was held Saturday afternoon in Yarmouth. The Clippers were coming off a 4-0 home

victory over Poland. Wyatt Jackson had two goals and David Clemmer and Adam LaBrie added one each. The Yachstmen had previously blanked host Freeport (3-0) and visiting Gray-New Gloucester (5-0). Cooper Lycan had two goals and Luke Velas one against the Falcons. In the win over the Patriots, Grant Burfeind and J.P. White had two goals each, while Lycan had one. Saturday, after a scoreless first half, Yarmouth got the jump on a goal from Clemmer with 21:28 to play, but just six minutes later, the Yachtsmen answered as Ian McBrady buried a rebound. Yarmouth then appeared to have the win wrapped up when freshman Walter Conrad scored his first varsity goal with just 5:10 remaining, but again, never-say-die Falmouth rose off the canvas and to the surprise of no one, it was Burfeind doing the honors, tying the score on a goal out of a scrum just 29 seconds later. The game would go to overtime, but neither powerhouse could break through and the squads settled for a 2-2 draw, with continued next page

Tough losses for local football squads (Ed. Note: For the complete Yarmouth-Traip game story, with a box score, please see By Michael Hoffer Friday evening and Saturday afternoon were certainly frustrating for local gridiron warriors. Falmouth, Greely and Yarmouth all suffered tough losses Friday, while Freeport dropped a close game Saturday. The two-time defending Class C state champion Clippers, coming off a one-point loss at

Maranacook, hoped to even their record, but instead suffered a 27-6 home setback to Traip in a rematch of last year’s regional final. The Rangers set the tone with a 19-play, 83-yard, 8 minute, 37 second scoring drive in the first period and the Clippers never caught up. Traip added a second TD in the second quarter, then returned the second half kickoff for another score to make it 200. Yarmouth attempted to rally and became the first opponent to score on the Rangers this season

when quarterback Brady Neujahr hit Rhys Eddy for a 6-yard TD pass, but the Clippers could draw no closer and a backbreaking, multiple tackle-breaking, highlight reel 80-yard TD run from Traip’s Cory Aldecoa in the fourth quarter put the finishing touches on the defeat. Yarmouth fell to 1-3, as the Clippers’ home win streak ended at 18 games. “(Traip) set the tone with that first drive, but we did a lot of things wrong tonight,” lamented continued page 24

the promise of even more memories to be made when they meet again for another Saturday Night Special in Falmouth. “I feel like we play our best when we’re down,” said Burfeind. “When we got in those situations, we got desperate and that led to good stuff. We need to play like that all the time. We were fired up. We weren’t going to lose the game. We’ve been in that situation before. We just did what we do best.” “It was a good game up to a point,” Yachstmen coach Dave Halligan said. “We would have liked to have come away with a win, but I was happy with how (the guys) responded.” The Clippers felt they let one get away, but splitting Heal Points with the defending champion is not the worst thing in their ♥

world. “It’s a little disappointing, but mainly because we could have found another level, played cleaner and better and taken better shots,” said Chandler Smith, who helped neutralize White. “It was a fantastic game. It was really great intensity. We really played as a team. We gave so much. The intense rivalry just adds to the team atmosphere.” “It was a great game,” said Yarmouth coach Mike Hagerty. “It’s everything you expect and then some.” Falmouth took a 6-0-1 record and the top spot in the Western Class B Heal Points standings to Traip Tuesday, then host the Clippers Saturday. Next Tuesday brings a trip to York for a rematch of last year’s Western B Final. Yarmouth (second in Western B) plays at Greely Thursday (please see theforecaster. net for game story). After going to Falmouth Saturday, the Clippers host Freeport Tuesday of next week.

while Tyler Spence added a goal). At the Clippers, Falmouth had several golden opportunities in the first half, but couldn’t finish and settled for a 0-0 draw. “You want to finish the opportunities we had,” said Yachtsmen coach Wally LeBlanc. “Certainly we had opportunities, but I wouldn’t focus on that. I’m glad we played a 0-0 game against a good Yarmouth team. We played hard as a team. They played hard as a team. It was a typical FalmouthYarmouth game. We held our own.” Falmouth (6-0-1 and second to Morse in the Western B Heals) is home with Wells Thursday, welcomes Yarmouth Saturday and York Tuesday. The Clippers have shown signs of moving up the standings. In the tie, Yarmouth had several good second half chances, but couldn’t convert, but still got to split valuable Heal Points with the two-time defending Class B champions. “It’s a good tie,” said Clippers coach Rich Smith. “I thought we played well. Falmouth’s a very good team. We gave them everything they could handle tonight.” Yarmouth improved to 2-3-2 and eighth with a 2-1 win at Wells Monday. Ariel Potter and Eaven O’Neill had the goals. The Clippers are at Greely Thursday (please see for game story), go to Falmouth Saturday and play at Freeport Tuesday. The Falcons are 4-4 and 10th in Western B after going 1-2 in recent action.

In the victory, Jocelyn Davee and Necole Harrison had the goals. The Falcons were at Poland Wednesday, play at Wells Saturday and host Yarmouth Tuesday. In Western A, Greely beat visiting Fryeburg (2-0) and lost at home to Cape Elizabeth (1-0) last week. In the win, Julia Mitiguy and Mary Morrison had the goals. Caton Beaulieu made six saves in the setback. Monday, the Rangers improved to 4-3 and ninth in the Heals with a 3-0 win at Gray-New Gloucester. Mitiguy, Molly Fitzpatrick and Mia Lambert scored.

Recap from previous page Freeport (2-0). Lizzie Lewis scored against the Seagulls. Scout Fischman had a dozen saves against the Falcons. The Panthers go to Sacopee Thursday, host Traip Saturday and welcome Sacopee Tuesday.

Field hockey North Yarmouth Academy’s two-time defending Class C field hockey state champion leads the Western C Heals and is 9-1 after extending its win streak to six with recent victories over visiting Sacopee (6-0), host Freeport (5-1), visiting Old Orchard Beach (4-1) and visiting Traip (3-0). In the win over the Hawks, Juliana Tardif scored twice, while Marina Poole and Kayla Rose also scored. Against the Falcons, the Panthers dug out of an early 1-0 hole, tying the game on Rose’s goal just before the half. In the second half, NYA got tallies from Rose, Jen Brown, Poole and Tardif to pull away. Against the Seagulls, Rose had two goals, Poole and Tardif one apiece. Poole had two goals and Rose in the win over the Rangers. The Panthers go to Poland Friday and have a showdown at Western B contender Falmouth Monday. Freeport saw its five-game win streak come to an end last week with losses to Traip (1-0), NYA (5-1) and Poland (2-1, in overtime). Goalie Tallie Martin made 15 saves against the Rangers. Against the Panthers, Emily Sturtevant gave the Falcons the lead with a goal 13 minutes in, but it didn’t last. Martin made 16 saves. Olivia Bubar scored against the Knights.

3-3, and beat visiting Gray-New Gloucester, 4-2. Emma Peterson had two goals and Katie Overhaug one against the Rangers. In the win, Carleen Shaw, Sarah Overink, Overhaug and Peterson all scored. Yarmouth goes to Lake Region Thursday and visits defending Western B champion York Tuesday. Falmouth and Greely met last Tuesday in a game both teams needed, but neither managed to win. Jess Wilson and Rachel Hanson scored in the first six minutes to make it 2-0 Rangers, but the Yachtsmen answered in the second half, drawing even on goals from Elle Fitzgerald and Mikey


Richards. Midway through the second half, however, lightning was seen in the area, the game was called and resulted in a 2-2 tie. “I’m not happy with a tie, but it wasn’t worth having any players injured,” said Greely coach Kristina Lane Prescott. I’m glad we had a second half so we could tie it up,” Haley said. “We played more of our game. I think our girls needed that.” The Rangers went on to lose to visiting Cape Elizabeth (5-4), tie visiting Yarmouth (3-3) and fall, 4-1, at Lake Region. Against the Capers, Hanson had a hat trick. Wilson had two goals against the Clippers and the lone tally against the Lakers. Greely (2-7-2 and 10th in Western B) hosts York Saturday, goes to Cape Elizabeth Monday and closes the regular season Thursday of next week at home against Wells. The Yachtsmen followed up their draw at Greely by tying visiting York, 2-2, and winning at Gray-New Gloucester, 3-0. Richards and Hayley Winslow scored in the deadlock. In the victory, Youngjin Kim, Jillian Rothweiler and Leika Scott had goals. Falmouth (4-3-2 and sixth in Western B) was at Wells Tuesday, visits Fryeburg Friday and plays host to NYA Monday.

Football from page 21 Yarmouth’s first-year coach Chris Pingitore. “We hit them in the backfield probably 75 percent of the time, but we didn’t tackle. That’s what it came down to. I don’t think they’re better than we are. We’re just as physical. We just didn’t finish tackles.” Yarmouth had just 138 yards of offense and was called for seven penalties, good for 57 yards. “I thought (Traip) scouted us well on offense,” said Pingitore. “They did some shifting into our motion and such. The penalties didn’t help. We had four or five first down runs or passes called back. We have to clean those up. When you’re in a hole, your playcalling changes.” Yarmouth needs to earn some wins and quickly, but the schedule doesn’t abate. Next Saturday, the Clippers go to 3-1 Winslow. The teams didn’t play last fall. Unlike the past two seasons, nothing is

coming easily for Yarmouth. Regardless, the Clippers aren’t giving in. Anyone who doesn’t think they’ll be a factor in late October could be in for an unpleasant surprise. “We’re starting to right the ship,” Pingitore said. “We have smart kids, good kids. It’s making them believe we can turn it around. We have four games left. It won’t be easy for us. We keep stressing little things in practice. I think we have the athletes and players to turn this around. We can still claw our way in.” Freeport played valiantly at Lisbon Saturday before losing, 31-22. After falling behind, 7-0, the Falcons drove 70 yards in 13 plays, chewing up nearly six minutes to take the lead when Dan Burke rushed for an 11-yard score on the final play of the first quarter and Burke ran in the two-point conversion to make it 8-7. The Greyhounds retook the lead 42 seconds into the second quarter and never looked back. Lisbon pushed the advantage to 23-8 before Freeport

answered on a 2-yard TD run from Ben MacMillan and a two-point conversion pass with 2:12 to go in the half. The hosts again extended the lead to 31-16 late in the third quarter, but again the Falcons answered on an 11-yard Burke TD run. This time, they could draw no closer and Lisbon held on, 31-22. “The kids played extremely hard and never quit,” said Freeport coach Rob Grover. “Lisbon has some fantastic backs we had trouble containing. We played as well as we could. The kids left it all on the field. We let them score one too many times.” Burke led the Falcons with 143 yards and two TDs on 25 rushes. “He was terrific,” Grover said, of his standout back. “He plays hard and loves the game. He gives it everything he’s got.” Freeport (2-2) has another pivotal game Saturday when it hosts 3-1 Old Orchard Beach, in just its second home game of the season. Last year, the Falcons edged the visiting Seagulls, 6-0. “This is one we’ve got to have if we want to make the playoffs,” Grover said. “Old Orchard has scrappy kids. It will be a tough challenge for us. Being home will be an advantage.” In Western B, Greely took a 3-0 mark to York Friday night and played a thriller

Football from previous page

14-7, early in the fourth, but Greely tied it on a TD pass from Drew Hodge to Connor Hanley. York returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown and a 21-14 lead, but again the Rangers rallied and made it 21-21 when Hodge threw a long TD pass to Nick Maynard. The hosts had the final laugh, however, winning the game on a field goal in the final minute, 24-21. “It was a great game for three quarters, but unfortunately, we lost focus early and that’s how they went ahead,” said Greely coach David Higgins. “You can’t get behind a team like that. They had answers every time we scored. Credit to York. Usually we freak people out on special tams, but they did a good job. What we need to learn is that we have to play from the get-go and we have to move forward.” Greely (3-1) hopes to rebound Friday at home against 2-2 Fryeburg. Last fall, the Rangers won in Fryeburg, 20-8. “It’s a kooky league this year,” Higgins said. “Fryeburg is tough. We know they can score. They have good athletes. I have utmost respect for their staff. They’ll have something for us. I think we’re in good position. We control our destiny. Hopefully nothing silly will happen.” Falmouth entered Friday night’s home



game against rival Cape Elizabeth with an 0-3 record, having been shutout in consecutive weeks. The Yachtsmen got off to a great start, taking a surprising 14-0 lead on touchdown runs from Connor Aube and Noah Nelson, but the Capers rallied to take a 20-14 lead at halftime and went on to a 30-14 victory, dropping Falmouth to 0-4. The Yachtsmen seek their first win Friday when they host 0-4 Lake Region. Last year, Falmouth handled the Lakers in Naples, 46-14.

Individually, Greely’s Kirstin Sandreuter (19:22) and Eva Bates (19:23) were second and third, respectively. NYA’s Hannah Austin had the 20th-best time (20:42). Merriconeag was paced by Samantha Pierce (46th, 21:47). Freeport’s top runner was Bethanie Knighton (56th, 22:09). Closer to home, Falmouth hosted Poland, Sacopee, Traip, Waynflete, Wells and York. The Yachtsmen won both the boys’ and girls’ competitions. Bryce Murdick (17:19), Jay Lesser (17:28) and Scott Lambert (17:43) went 1-2-3 for Falmouth in the boys’ race. On the girls’ side, the Yachtsmen were paced by Madeline Roberts (20:39). Yarmouth joined Cape Elizabeth and Lake Region at Gray-New Gloucester, where the girls were first and the boys second. Sarah Becker won the girls’ meet in 21:38. Braden Becker was third in the boys’ race (17:29). This weekend, local schools will run in the Belfast Invitational. Freeport is joining Gray-New Gloucester and York at Poland.

On the links, the regular season is coming to a close and the qualifiers and state matches are coming right up. Defending Class A champion Falmouth took a 5-2 mark into Tuesday’s home match versus Portland. Last week, the Yachtsmen downed Deering, 12-1, and lost, 8-5, to Cheverus. Falmouth was home against South Portland Wednesday and finishes up Thursday at South Portland. Greely dominated Windham (12.5-0.5) and Westbrook (13-0) last week to improve to 6-2. The Rangers were home with Thornton Academy Tuesday and close Thursday against visiting Gorham. Yarmouth entered the week a perfect 8-0 in Class B after recent wins over Wells (6-1) and rival Cape Elizabeth (5-2). The Clippers were home with Freeport Tuesday and look to finish with an undefeated mark at York Thursday. NYA’s return to varsity status continues to go well. The Panthers beat Lake Region (7-0) and Waynflete (6-1) last week to improve to 8-1. NYA closed against Sacopee

Thursday. Freeport beat Old Orchard Beach (5-2) and lost to Cape Elizabeth and York twice by 7-0 margins to fall to 3-7. The Falcons hosted Yarmouth Tuesday and go to Cape Elizabeth Thursday.

Volleyball Defending Class A volleyball champion Greely saw its four-match win streak end Wednesday at home against Biddeford. The Rangers lost at the Tigers to start the season and despite three close games, fell again, 21-25, 23-25, 22-25. “We had difficulty playing under pressure,” said Rangers coach Kelvin Hasch. “(Biddeford seems) to be happy and having fun and they were able to close it out each time. I would think we could handle pressure, but we haven’t been able to do it yet. We’re not believing in ourselves. People are hesitating, not going after the ball.” Greely took a 4-2 record and the No. 7 spot in the Class A Heals to Windham Monday. The Rangers are home with

Unsung Hero from page 8 school on seven acres at Wolfe’s Neck Farm. Aronson’s family foundation provided the seed money to develop plans for the school, which was designed to provide 10th-grade girls from across the country with an opportunity to spend a life-changing semester on the coast of Maine. Pam Erickson was to serve as the executive director. Aronson would serve as chairwoman of the board; in addition, she assisted with curriculum development, spearheaded fundraising, and helped create promotional materials. Supported by a significant three-year grant from Aronson’s family foundation, Coastal Studies welcomed its first class of 15 girls in February 2010. “I love seeing the girls be 15 again, away from some of the pressures of their homes, schools and communities,” Erickson said. “They get to press ‘pause’ while they’re here, take stock of who they are, and challenge themselves in an environment drenched with support. Some of my fondest images are of the girls, clad in muck boots and seining nets, walking side by side, drenched in mud, conversing about the journey they just had through the mudflats near the school. They begin to see themselves and the world they live in with fresh eyes.” The applied-research curriculum gives girls an in-depth experience in scientific exploration, with access to the latest technologies. Collaboration with educational and scientific organizations (including the Maine Department of Natural Resources and the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools) provides Coastal Studies and its students with a valuable network of support. Visiting scholars and scientists add further insights to the experience. Enriched by their semester in Freeport, students in that first class commenced their college careers at an impressive array of colleges this fall: Amherst, Bates, Bowdoin, Middlebury, Mount Holyoke and the University of California-Berkeley, among others. Erickson stressed Aronson’s pivotal role in converting Coastal Studies from dream to reality. “Edith’s dedication and investment in getting CSG off the ground has been truly spectacular,” she said. “Without her vision and generosity, this little school would not exist.” Although Aronson appreciates Erickson’s words, she said she realizes her greatest rewards from the growth of CSG students. “There’s no bigger joy than seeing a kid’s eyes light up,” she said. “We give them a place and the tools to help them go farther than they ever imagined.”

The Haley Cup was created in honor of the late Tim Haley of South Portland, a major supporter of the Cancer Community Center’s Fight Back Festival. The cup is awarded to the team that raises the most money in the festival; this year it went to Haley’s own Team Headstrong.

Headstrong from page 3 cer organization and got him involved with the Cancer Community Center’s Fight Back Festival. The festival includes 10-, 25- and 60-mile bike rides, 5k and 10k races and a mile walk. Last year was the first year that Haley’s team participated in the Fight Back Festival at Pineland and a huge group of his fraternity brothers and friends joined together to raise funds for the center. Even while undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Maine Medical Center, Haley took part in the Fight Back Festival’s 60-mile bike ride. Haley said he wanted his legacy to be local, and fundraising for the Fight Back Festival was one way that he wanted his family and friends to continue to give back. “He said ‘I want people to continue to do that,’” Kimberly said. “He made it clear (the Fight Back Festival) was something he wanted us to continue to be a part of. It was about him wanting to help other people going through what we were going through, living what we lived.” This year, the Cancer Community Center created the Haley Cup, to honor the team that raised the most money to support the center. “(Tim) did a lot for us in a very short time of him getting involved with us,” said Jennifer Nelson, development director at the Cancer Community Center. “He donated television advertising for our event, he really helped to spread the word. After he passed away, we wanted to do something special to honor him.” The center’s goal was to raise $75,000, and more than $70,000 had been counted by Monday. All of the funds raised by the event go to support the free programs offered by the center. With the creation of the Haley Cup, Team Headstrong was very motivated to take home the cup named for their friend. Nelson said that, at last check, the team had raised nearly $20,000 for the center. Kimberly said she was thrilled about

what fundraising the team was able to do and that it truly shows how many lives Haley touched. “He was just such a leader and motivator and, I think, last year it was sort of ‘Come on, do this.’ But this year we were all like this is a really positive way

to remember him,” she said. “I know he would have been really thrilled with us doing something social and fun and positive.” Amber Cronin can be reached at acronin@theforecaster. net or 781-3661 ext. 125. Follow her on Twitter @ croninamber.

would have no effect on the planned expansion of Walmart because the project has already been approved. Councilors will vote on the revised amendment at their Oct. 10 meeting. Amber Cronin can be reached at acronin@theforecaster. net or 781-3661 ext. 125. Follow her on Twitter @ croninamber.

SAD 51 from page 1 remain in place until a decision could be made. When Porter challenged that notion, Superintendent of Schools Robert Hasson said he had been told that by the district’s attorney, but did not have a formal, written opinion. “I’ve read every document about the operation of this board,” Porter said. “... There’s nothing that addresses this issue.” A nomination for Vail resulted in the second 4-4 stalemate, with Vail, Moulton, Porter and Dunnett in favor, and Richards, Bailinson, Leggat and Dwyer opposed. Dunnett was then nominated, with the same people voting the same way. Moulton – who, like Porter, was elected to the board in June, but previously served on the board from 2002 to 2005 – was then nominated. He said he was not interested in serving as chairman, but would do so for a short time in order to break the stalemate. The same members voted for and against. A short recess failed to resolve the situation. Bailinson’s motion for Richards as chairman again ultimately drew the same 4-4 vote. Bailinson lauded Richards as an educator, school superintendent, assistant commissioner of education, and longtime member of the community who is able to work with everyone.

“If Jeff wanted to serve as vice chair under Bill, or as finance chair, I would endorse that,” Bailinson said. Vail said the citizens of Cumberland and North Yarmouth “deserve better.” “I think that the motion on the table should be the offering of our resignations, and an election of a new board, with the exception of the new members who were just recently elected,” Vail said, adding that the board’s inability to work together “just speaks volumes.” “It’s terribly important that we move this on, and focus upon what’s really important, and that’s the kids in the school district,” Richards said. “... I’m very concerned about the implications of this deadlock, with respect to professional staff and the support staff, and eventually it trickles down to the kids, because it has an impact upon climate. “You’ve got something precious here,” he urged his colleagues. “Don’t destroy it.” Bailinson expressed the importance of a member going through “at least a cycle on the School Board” before assuming a leadership role. “This is nothing about Jeff being unqualified, or inappropriate to be board chair; I think it is inappropriate to come onto the board and to step into the chair role,” Bailinson said, noting the array of responsibilities included in that position. Porter pointed out that while he was new to the School Board, he had served 12 years

on the Cumberland Town Council, three of them as chairman; he had also served as chairman during part of his nine years on the People’s Regional Opportunity Program board. “I know exactly what the role of chair is,” he said, acknowledging that it would likely be somewhat different on the School Board. Porter expressed respect for Richards, calling him “the heart and soul” of the education discussion. But he said he did not think Richards would be the best chairman. “The problem with this board, over the past five to 10 years, is you don’t have eight members of this board fully engaged,” Porter said. “Part of that is the problem with the board, part of that is the chair’s job. ... This needs to change.” Dunnett helped turn the tide when he suggested Porter and Richards serve as cochairmen. Porter said he would be happy to co-chair the board with Richards, and that the two of them could decide how to share responsibilities. Richards later agreed as well. Hasson said the board attorney told him that the board could have co-chairmen. Dwyer expressed concern that chairmen tend not to serve on board committees, and that two chairmen not on committees would overburden the other members. Porter,

however, expressed willingness to serve on committees. “If we truly believe in compromise, here it is,” Moulton said. Bailinson said he had not liked this option in earlier discussions, thinking of it as a sign of weakness that the board could not reach a decision, and that it could cause damage to the board’s standing in the community. “We’ve probably done that damage already tonight through this process,” he said. Although public comment was not allowed during the discussion, John Campbell of Cumberland managed to get his point across. He expressed the importance of community input in the decision, which he opined solved nothing. “It ends the meeting and we can feel good for a few minutes,” he said. “Sparta had two kings; that didn’t work. There’s a reason school boards don’t have two chairs, there’s a reason America doesn’t have two presidents.” But Leggat said the compromise does have potential to work. “There’s no reason to think that we need to have one person above another to run a funactional board,” she said. Prior to the board’s unanimous vote for its co-chairmen, Richards requested that the board evaluate the effectiveness of the joint role in a few months.

could not be reached for comment. The crash, reported shortly after 5 p.m., occurred in a narrow channel between Littlejohn and Chebeague islands. Boat traffic typically bottlenecks in that channel, between a red buoy that marks a bar and the Littlejohn Island town dock, Beal said. The 35.8-foot Searay Sundancer cabin cruiser was traveling southwest behind a U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary boat. The skiff, which was heading west toward the Cousins Island dock, was struck toward the stern on the starboard side, causing that vessel to capsize and sending Whetham into the water, Beal said.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel retrieved Whetham from the water, and LeMieux also responded and tried to provide assistance, according to Marine Patrol Lt. John Cornish. Whetham received initial medical assistance and then was rushed by a Freeport Rescue ambulance to Maine Medical Center in Portland, where he was pronounced dead at 6:07 p.m. The sun was low on the western horizon at the time of the crash, which could have obstructed the boaters’ vision, Beal said. That possibility and who had the right-of-way are still being investigated. Whetham was the only person in the skiff; eight people were in LeMieux’s vessel. Beal said he was not aware of damage to that vessel, and no one on board was injured. There are no signs that

alcohol use was a factor, but investigators took blood samples from both operators. “It’s still very much an investigation ... we’re not taking anything for granted here,” Cornish said on Monday. “We’re still trying to determine the rules of the road, right-of-way. ... We’re investigating who may have been at fault here, and we haven’t concluded that yet.” A notice on said Whetham had a wife of 43 years, Dianne, and two children, Erin and Hank. An island memorial is being planned, with more information to come, according to the website. Ed Doughty, who owns the Doughty Island Market on Chebeague, called

Whetham a quiet person “with a great sense of humor.” Selectman Donna Damon said Whetham was a jazz musician and played the saxophone, and that his children had moved back to the island. Both she and Hill said Whetham worked hard at his job. Hill said Whetham used to mow his lawn, and that he had known him for about 20 years. “Hard-working, honest, quiet,” he said. “Just a really nice person.” Hill added that “going back and forth, and doing the work that he did, I think he had a work ethic that most of us would admire.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or alear@ Follow him on Twitter: @learics.
