Public’s turn to comment on revised Comp Plan By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — The Town Council is reviewing the final draft of the Comprehensive Plan and is expected to hold a public hearing on the recommendations Thursday, Oct. 7. The updated plan was formally presented to the council by the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee co-chairwomen, Esther Pappas and Mary Williamson, on Sept. 2. Since then, the council has met twice to go through the document that has taken four years to develop. The plan focuses on five areas that are important to the town and ultimately interconnected – the village area, diversity of population and housing, historic character, Route 1, and rural character and open space. Council Vice Chairman Tom Renehan served on the Planning Board for six years and spent two as chairman and has seen the process from start to finish. He said although the public has been encouraged to participate in the plan development, not many people have come forward. “It is not uncommon to invite the public to participate and have little to no response,” he said. “This is important and there are changes happening, so we hope at least a few people will come out to offer input.” He said the implementation of form-based code and the creation of a historic building inventory are two of the biggest changes to the proposed 2010 Comprehensive Plan. Form-based code is a shift from a use-based code, and focuses on the design and placement of buildings instead of the specific use of the property. Renehan said it is a modern approach to regulating growth and development and zoning. See page 34

Expert: Falmouth’s new policy on public records is too restrictive

Opening day at the fair

By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — The process to obtain public documents from the town is being made more rigorous in light of what town officials say is a dramatic increase in the number of requests in the past year. But an expert on Maine’s freedom of information law says the town may be going too far. The School Department implemented the new protocol after reviewing it in early September. Town Manager Nathan Poore plans to present a similar protocol to the Town Council for review in October. Neither the School Board nor the council are required to approve the procedure before it is

implemented. Maine’s Freedom of Access Act entitles citizens the right to access public records and meetings by public bodies. The new policy, local officials hope, will clarify the process for requesting documents from the town and School Department. “There’s been, I think, some confusion about what a public record is, what is covered under FOAA,” Superintendent Barbara Powers said. “There’s been a lot of back and forth about what is a record and we’re hoping this might clear it up.” The protocol, which is currently available on the school’s See page 21

By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — The Town Council has determined how it will proceed on creation of a proposed “town center” at the Plummer-Motz and Lunt schools. After a lengthy and occasionally heated discussion Monday evening, the council decided to discuss options for the library, Town Hall and a proposed community recreation center at a public meeting with the Falmouth Memorial Library board of trustees on Oct. 18 at the library, and then at the next two

council meetings. The council in September declined to put a proposal to borrow up to $4 million on the November ballot. The bond would have asked voters to support moving the library to the soon-to-be vacated Lunt School and the Town Hall to the Plummer School, while creating a community center in the Motz wing. During Monday’s meeting, library Vice President Julie Rabinowitz said the trustees have enSee page 7

Webster is challenged by Republican newcomer William Greene in the election to represent Freeport and a portion of Pownal in House District 106.

Greene has worked on budgets in government and private industry, and said cuts have to be made from an intelligent and dispassionate perspective in order to balance the state budget. He said the Department of Health and Human Greene Services and schools have the largest budgets, and the majority of cuts must come from these areas. “Our government is on an unsustainable trajectory, and we must direct the government to a sustainable budget in an environment of reduced revenues,” he said. He said the state is heading in the wrong direction, and needs to be more business friendly, fiscally responsible and willing to make cuts. He said the state cannot afford a university system with seven campuses. He suggested transforming the more remote campuses – Fort Kent and Machias – into business campuses. Greene suggests paying toward the state pension now in order to avoid the projected crisis. He said if the state can attract more businesses, more jobs will be created and the tax base will increase. He said by reducing the size and scope of government, the crisis could further be contained. Greene said government should not “be in the marriage business and certainly should not be telling religious organizations who they must marry.” He said if the same-sex marriage bill resurfaces, he would support legislation that would allow civil unions for either same or opposite sex. He said the consolidation of emergency medical dispatch services with Brunswick is “strictly a fiscal issue.” “If retaining the dispatch services in Freeport is more cost effective and, more importantly, more effective in getting services to those who need them the quickest, then keep it in Brunswick,” he said. “If Brunswick can do the same for less, then dispatch should be in Brunswick.” He said he was not in favor of legislating jobs into the Town Charter by retaining the service in Freeport.

Greene said school consolidation is a good idea that was implemented poorly. Since the consolidation law has been enacted, he said the RSU 5 Board of Directors has reduced annual increases to the school budget, but needs to create a sustainable budget by making cuts year after year. There should be no reliance on stimulus money from federal sources, he said. In addition, he said the voters in the 2008 December election were fatigued by the political process and as a result, were not as informed and interested in the RSU 5 election, as shown by the low voter turnout. “I consider the (RSU 5) members as being unrepresentative of the town at large with responsibility of over 60 percent of the town budget,” he said. “As a start, the next election of RSU members should be done in a general election cycle in November,” he said. Greene said he would like to be a part of state government that promotes private industry and fiscal responsibility. “I’m not running to be popular, but if I am elected, I will try to make cuts and campaign for responsibility,” he said. “I’m a fiscal realist. I’d like to get back to the flinty, personally responsible people we used to be in Maine.”

House District 107: Innes, Weinstein compete in Yarmouth By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — Incumbent Democratic Rep. Melissa Walsh Innes is challenged by Republican newcomer Jeffrey Weinstein in state House District 107. Innes is seeking her second term in the Legislature.

Melissa Walsh Innes Innes, 39, of East Elm Street, is married and has three children. She grew up in Pownal, and attended Greely High School before earning a bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Southern Maine. She is a special education technician at Harrison Middle School and was the past chairwoman of the Yarmouth Energy Savers Committee and the First Universalist Faith in Action Committee. She serves on the Innes Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Natural Resources. Innes said over the past two years she has worked with her legislative colleagues to cut more than $800 million in spending to help balance the state budget, but there is still a lot of work to be done. She said she will continue to work to ensure the state does not spend more than it takes in. Innes said she would like to “make our government leaner,” while protecting quality education, economic development and health care. “School funding is constantly discussed in Augusta, and the goal Rof o55 lutpercent ions r’s esshe Yeafocus,” funding is always said. “I Newthe continue to check in with Yarmouth’s superintendent and School Committee, as well as the Joint Standing Committee on Education, as guides in education decisions.” Innes said she is concerned about the pending state pension shortfall, and is re-

searching the topic in order to make more informed decisions in the future. The issue is currently before the Labor Committee, she said, and will be discussed by the next Legislature. Innes said she received more than 700 correspondences from constituents urging her to vote in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage in Maine. She said if the issue comes back to the Legislature, she will continue to support the rights of Maine men and women to marry same-sex partners. “I was proud to cast my vote for samesex marriage in the House, and was also happy to see that when the issue came to the polls, Yarmouth also voted overwhelmingly to support same-sex marriage,” Innes said, although it was defeated statewide by 30,000 votes. She said she feels strongly that citizen’s rights be represented, and encourages residents to join her in Augusta to speak to other legislators and testify in public hearings to fight for what they believe in.

“This is what is needed in Augusta, empowered citizens who believe and know that this is their state and government, and their influence in governmental proceedings is crucial in making good policy,” Innes said. She also said she is proud of her work with the Maine State Chamber of Commerce in shaping an environmental bill that will provide business input into the process. “I worked hard over the last two years to build working relationships with legislators in both parties, and was thrilled to pass a first-in-the-nation recycling and future economic development law that received the votes of every legislator in Augusta,” Innes said. “Continuing to work with Republicans and Democrats on vital issues for our state – jobs, health care, and protecting our natural resources – is my goal in seek-

House District 108: Incumbent faces 2 challengers By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — To win a third term in state House District 108, Rep. Meredith Strang Burgess, R-Cumberland, must defeat fellow Cumberland residents Erin Cianchette, a Green Independent, and Thomas Gruber, a Democrat. All three spoke of desires to cross party lines so that lawmakers can work together for the benefit of all Mainers. House District 108 includes Cumberland, North Yarmouth, Chebeague Island and Long Island.

Erin Cianchette Cianchette, 30, is a hostess at the Portland Harbor Hotel, where she hopes to ultimately hold a management position. She is also a secretary and office manager at Main Line Fence in Cumberland. Cianchette, however, said she considers her career track that Cianchette of a political activist. She managed the campaigns of David Frans for the Maine House and Jason Bergquist for the Maine Senate, and she chairs the Maine Green Independent Party. Her platform includes 10 Green values: grassroots democracy, social justice and equal opportunity, ecological wisdom, non-violence, decentralization toward local control, community-based economics and economic justice, feminism and gender equity, respect for diversity, personal and global responsibility, and future focus and sustainability, including the protection of

Falmouth council from page 1 listed the services of another consultant who will update a previously published report on the library’s space needs. ”He will be tasked with updating the 2003 Lucker Report to reflect certain trends and standards,” Rabinowitz said. “He will be made available to councilors, the public and library staff.” The consultant will do the analysis on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 4 and 5, then will present his findings for the first time to trustees and councilors at the Oct. 18 meeting. That meeting will include a tour of the library and will be open to the public, but public comment will not be allowed. While the meeting will not be televised live, it will be recorded and replayed on Channel 2 the following day. “The public can and should feel confident they have all the information the trustees have,” Council Chairman Tony Payne said, referring to a group of citizens who complained that an April study of the library’s needs was not included in presentations or made available to the public. During the meeting, councilors designated Town Manager Nathan Poore as the contact person for the council. Rabinowitz will be the contact person for the library. All communications between the two groups will go through those two people. “There were too many people talking to too many people,” Councilor Bonny Rodden said of the previous process. Councilor Will Armitage expressed concern that the process would become bogged down and that there were not enough deadlines.

important natural resources and safe disposal of the waste people create. “I believe I would be a great state representative if the community, District 108, agrees with my core values,” Cianchette said. “... I will work towards upholding those values, and I will not compromise on them, and I will stay true to them.” She called herself a diplomatic person, suggesting that her time with Seeds of Peace inspired her to be a facilitator. “I work to bring people together, to motivate them and work together,” she said. Cianchette said she can offer an alternative voice in the state as a third-party representative. “I’m an organizer and an effective communicator,” she said. “I listen to the people, what they need and want.” Cianchette said it is essential to create a sustainable and vibrant economic system that can generate jobs and provide a decent adequate standard of living for everyone while a healthy ecological balance is maintained. She also advocates a health-care system that allows all people to get the treatments they require at affordable prices.

Thomas Gruber Gruber, 60, is retired from the U.S. Army and the health-care field. He worked in operations at Mercy Hospital for about 20 years and was later at Catholic Health East, where he started a supply-chain management program. He is Gruber Comment on this story at:

“I don’t want to recreate the wheel,” he said. “This shouldn’t take a lot of time to do.” Armitage suggested the council consider a “request for qualifications” process, which would ask potential architectural firms to submit qualifications to be considered for the project. The town would then choose the firm to work with based on what was submitted. The process differs from a “request for proposals” process, in that it does not require specific plans tailored to the project. Poore suggested either the RFQ or RFP process would be appropriate, but that the town should hold off until it has a better concept of what the project would entail. Councilor Cathy Breen on Monday expressed her frustration with the whole process. Breen was one of the liaisons between the Community Facilities Planning Committee and the council when the committee was putting together its initial report, presented earlier this year. The report was the basis for the proposed bond issue. “We spent $70,000. We spent oodles of staff time,” Breen said of the committee. “It’s shameful.” Breen said the library trustees lost their resolve in the process, referring to the board’s recommendation in early September that the bond be delayed in the hopes that a more fiscally prudent measure could be drafted. Breen also brought up Payne’s involvement with a the citizen group that opposed the bond measure, and discussed his weekly continued page 21

married and has no children, and he has spent 30 years in Maine. Gruber said he is running because he has time and knowledge, as well as a desire to be a public servant. He has never served in an elected position, but said he has been on many boards and participated in a variety of volunteer activities. “I’m kind of tired of all the comments that are (made) towards our public officials,” Gruber said. “I think that everybody that runs as a public official has good in them, and in their heart they’re trying to do the best they can.” He added that he wants to restore confidence in public officials. Gruber said he has been involved in environmental issues. “I just want to pass on something to the next generation ... that they would feel good about,” he said. He added that he does not think his generation has given back enough to future generations in that respect. Gruber said he also wants Mainers to be proud of their state. “I don’t want it just to be ‘the vacation state,’ or something like that,” he said. “I want people to say, ‘there’s a state that got it together, there’s a good place to bring my family, there’s a good place to start a business.’ And make (Maine) attractive, and basically use the resources that we have.” The state’s No. 1 resource is people, Gruber said, who are imbued with Yankee independence, and “we’re not just party people; we do what we feel is right.”


He said his work experience has shown him to be an available and accountable person, qualities he said will serve him well in Augusta.

House District 109: 3-way race includes 3-time candidate

By Alex Lear NORTH YARMOUTH — In her third bid to represent Maine House District 109, Democrat Anne Graham is in a contest with fellow North Yarmouth resident Tyler Frank, an independent, and Republican Gary Foster of Gray. They are vying to replace Rep. Susan Austin, R-Gray, who is barred from seeking re-election due to term limits. District 109 includes parts of North Yarmouth, Pownal and Gray.

Gary Foster Foster, 53, runs a residential remodeling and repair business and has spent his life in Maine. “For a number of years I’ve been following what’s been happening in our state,” he said, noting that his increased involvement over the years led to his election to Foster the Gray Town Coun-

cil. He served from 2004 to 2007, including two years as chairman. Foster later was on the Gray Planning Board for one year to fill a vacancy, and he also spent time on the town’s Ordinance Review Committee. He is now Gray’s representative to the board of directors of ecomaine. “We’ve got a lot of problems to fix, and I’m ready to jump into it,” he said, noting that spending and taxes are among issues that concern him. “In my opinion, our state government is growing faster than our taxpayers’ ability to afford it,” Foster said. He also favors welfare reform. He said he sees “a tremendous amount of waste and inefficiency” in the welfare system. “Politicians will say they’re going to create jobs, but the only jobs that government creates are government jobs,” Foster said. “... Unfortunately, those jobs consume wealth; they don’t create wealth for the state. Private job growth, business growth, economic growth ... all comes from the

private sector.” He said he has also read and researched both the federal and state constitutions, and has “a very clear understanding of the powers and duties of government, and that in my opinion is a starting point for any elected official.” Foster added that “if we can constrain government to its proper role, a lot of the problems would just go away. Much of it is operating outside of its legitimate authority.”

Tyler Frank Frank, 25, is a lifelong Mainer who owns CinderCreative, a web development company, and is launching, a real estate listing website. “Maine’s economy is in shambles,” Frank said, adding that “our business climate ranks as the worst in the nation. Our taxes are too high, and our regulations are too strict – it’s no mystery why businesses

and jobs tend to leave Maine and not come back. I am not interested in being a politician. Rather, I am running in order to free Mainers and Maine’s economy from the stifling burdens placed on it by unnecessary government intervention.” Frank said economy and jobs are a key concern, and prosperity will only return when the government Frank steps back and allows natural market readjustments to occur. He said taxes and state spending must both be lowered, and that unnecessary regulations must be eliminated so that jobs and investment can be attracted to Maine. Frank said he also hopes to encourage free-market energy innovation in the state by lifting “harmful regulatory barriers” that the Maine Department of Energy imposes, in order to allow competition in the electricity market. He said he also wants to reduce healthcare costs in Maine by getting rid of coverage mandates and allowing residents to buy insurance across state lines. He also favors the elimination of DirigoChoice, which he called “a costly and entirely ineffective program currently financed by high taxes on all other insurance plans. “

Vote GOP slate in Yarmouth Many voters in Forecaster country will be voting early via absentee ballot. As the mother of young college graduates who have little hope of being employed in Maine’s dismal job market, I urge my fellow voters in Yarmouth to join me in voting for the slate of Paul LePage for governor, Dean Scontras for Congress, Jerry Davis for Maine Senate and Jeff Weinstein for Maine House. LePage, Scontras, Davis and Weinstein will direct their efforts toward right-sizing government and unshackling the creative energy of Maine people. We can figure out for ourselves how to operate our businesses, use our money, light our homes, and do what’s best for our families. When we stop electing statist truebelievers who are bent on mandating how to run our lives, our companies, and our communities, we’ll get a government that’s conducive to private sector job growth and prosperity for all Mainers. Jane Gildart Yarmouth

Nelson deserves Falmouth’s support State Rep. Mary Nelson has served Falmouth very well and deserves our support on Election Day. Nelson has been a strong leader in three of the most important issues facing Maine: creating good jobs, investing in sustainable energy and ensuring that our education system from kindergarten through the university is fully preparing our students for the 21st century. Part of the reason Mary has done such a great job in the Legislature is that she has long and deep ties to this community, including her service on the Town Council and the School Board. She never loses touch with the people of Falmouth, and she has a thorough understanding of the needs and aspirations of the families and businesses she represents. Most important, Mary’s strong leadership skills are complimented by her ability to listen carefully to the people of our town. Mary truly repre-

sents our values and our interests. I ask you to join me in supporting Mary Nelson to continue her outstanding work as Falmouth’s advocate and voice in Augusta. John Brautigam Falmouth

Re-elect Nelson in Falmouth As a former state representative, I write in support of re-electing Mary Nelson to represent Falmouth in the Maine House of Representatives. Mary’s strengths are her strong sense of fiscal responsibility, her understanding of the need to invest in education and her realization that Maine’s clean environment goes hand in hand with a healthy economy. Mary knows how important it is to give our children the skills to succeed in today’s workplace. Mary’s family business ties give her reason to work to insure that Maine is a good place to have, to grow and to establish a business. Mary worked hard in her first term to reduce state spending; let’s send her back to continue this difficult but necessary job. I hope you will join me in voting for Mary Nelson on Nov. 2. Sherry Huber Falmouth

Woodbury for state Senate I’m writing in enthusiastic support of Dick Woodbury in state Senate District 11. Dick Woodbury is the right person at the right time. An economist by training, a respected expert in public finance issues, and a three-term state representative with legislative leadership positions focused on tax policy and education. Dick has the amazing ability to work with, and be trusted by, both sides of the aisle. As an independent, Dick stands apart from the D versus R, the Red versus Blue, and just gets things done for the right reasons, and not the political reasons. I believe we need someone who is not beholden to party interests and who has the experience, fortitude and leadership to address the tough issues. I commend Cindy Bullens for withdrawing from the race and endorsing Dick

Senators must close finance loophole Earlier this year in its Citizens United v. FEC decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations, unions and other organizations may make unlimited political expenditures to elect or defeat candidates. Although the court endorsed disclosure of these contributions, there is a loophole in campaign finance law that allows groups to avoid disclosing fund sources – and even foreign corporations can now spend freely and secretly in American elections. There is currently legislation pending in the Senate, the DISCLOSE Act, which would establish new disclosure requirements for corporations, labor unions, advocacy groups and trade associations. Unfortunately, our senators recently voted against letting the Senate even debate the bill. After Citizens United, strong campaign finance laws like the DISCLOSE Act are essential and are supported by the public. In a recent poll, more than 80 percent of Mainers said they strongly support campaign finance disclosure and transparency. Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins should work with their Senate colleagues to come up with a version of the DISCLOSE Act they can support. If the Senate does not act, there is nothing to prevent big moneyed interests – both domestic and foreign – from secretly influencing our elections. Voters deserve to

Re-elect Davis in District 11 Jerry Davis notes a Robert Frost quotation in his brochure: “I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.” If reelected state senator, voters can depend on Jerry’s continuing to work painstakingly, keeping his promises and always going the extra mile. Jerry was a highly respected history teacher at Portland High when we met. He was also a beloved coach of football, track and girls’ soccer. He knew how to nurture and care for kids. He knew how to build on the strengths of each student and player. He instilled skill-building techniques and taught kids the art of working together to achieve a goal. For over 30 years Jerry excelled as team-builder, teacher, coach. His exceptional people skills and gracious manner became his hallmark: an ability to listen and respond quickly to concerns of his constituents. Jerry is devoted to family, church, community and country. He has achieved an outstanding record of self-giving and service. His experience will be an asset in helping Maine to find solutions for a more effective government. His concerns reflect thousands of hurting Maine voters, among them family members and neighbors. Who’s going to stand up for you? Jerry is getting my vote on Nov. 2. He’ll stand up ably and honorably for every Mainer. He’ll continue to lead with honor as state senator of District 11. Let’s re-elect Jerry Davis. Marge Merrill Devine Falmouth

Legislation proves Nelson’s worth When choosing a representative for House District 112 look to what Rep. Mary Nelson has done for us. She has focused on getting things accomplished in Augusta and works on efforts to pass legislation that benefits us all – not a few special interests. In 2009 she cosponsored many pieces of legislation which demonstrate her commitment to helping Mainers obtain the tools to achieve stability and work toward a bright future. A quick review demonstrates that Mary is an effective legislator who knows the how to make government work for the people. The list of bills she co-sponsored include LD 1101, which promotes science, technology, English and math education; LD 1140, a bill to strengthen farm-toschool efforts; LD 1054, which promotes economic development in the greater Portland region, and LD 1446 to Create an Online Learning Program. Mary is working

on issues every day in Augusta which will make it possible for us to thrive and not just survive. Earlier this year she sponsored HP 1098, A Resolve to Review Certification Requirements for Installation of Solar Energy Systems. The bill’s purpose is to make the transition to locally produced energy as easy as possible by keeping a check on permitting to make sure it is appropriate and not overly complicated. Mary knows how to work across party lines to create legislation which clears the path to make stable energy supplies more accessible. We need Mary in Augusta; she deserves your vote.

Beem column points to LePage With regards to Edgar Allen Beem’s column, “Cutler’s anonymous critics keep the biggest secret,” I’d like to go out on that limb and guess. First let me say that while I don’t always agree with Beem’s points like gay marriage, he’s a real treat to read; we’re both liberals, although I call myself a conservative liberal. Anyway, my guess is that while the person or persons behind the Cutler Files may well be acting on their own, my gut says the motive is to benefit that guy from Waterville who’s running for governor. Anonymous writers have always played a role in the history of the world, but generally it’s to serve beyond a self-serving interest. I don’t know what is going to happen in November, but this campaign for governor has quite a few similarities to the 2008 presidential campaign, where bloggers on the net tried to distort President Obama’s

Beem on target about Arizona

Thank you for publishing such a refreshing piece about Arizona’s SB1070. Edgar Allen Beem provided a factual, intelligent, respectable explanation of the absurdity of SB1070. It’s nice to know there are people out there who know the facts and understand the corrupt economic force behind this bill. Of course people are making money from it – that’s why Jan Brewer signed it. Unfortunately, that’s how our country works. It’s up to us, the citizens, to demand comprehensive immigration reform that focuses on compassion for humans who make this country a better place.

I support amnesty. Just think of how much it will build our economy when we bring immigrants out of the shadows and they pay taxes, buy more goods, and participate fully in the community and the economy. Yes, most pay taxes now, and with legalization, they all will, which can only benefit our economy. Nicole Hawkes Vineyard Haven, Mass.

Falmouth should reuse old schools

I am writing to express my support for the proposal to convert the Lunt and Plummer-Motz campus into a community space, with a possibility for the Falmouth library to expand to the site as well. These beautiful historic buildings would provide a much-needed amenity to our community, in a convenient location. Such an amenity has great potential for increasing property values and providing a tangible sense of community that Falmouth does not currently have. I would be very disappointed to see the land and buildings demolished by a commercial builder. In recent conversations with Falmouth residents, I have discovered that many have misinformation about the possibilities, or none at all. It would be a magnanimous gesture by the Town Council if these options were presented via a public service campaign, or by offering this option on an election ballot. In doing so, the council would allow residents the opportunity to evaluate the options and voice their preference. Rose Splint Falmouth

Woodbury for state Senate A vote for Dick Woodbury, who is running as an independent for state Senate, is a vote for an opportunity for Maine to fiscally right itself. He has a well-grounded vision for Maine in terms of its financial policy, education priorities and quality of life issues. His legislative experience earns my confidence and now is the time to have his well-balanced, independent point of view. Given the chance, he will assist to lead critical policy debates regarding Maine’s future and win on his plan’s merit and sound judgment. His qualifications are unmatched in respect to fiscal issues given his Ph.D. in economics and professional experience in that field. Dick’s personal and moral integrity are exemplary. Maine is fortunate to have a uniquely qualified, economic-focused candidate willing to serve the State at such a critical financial time. It is practically incumbent upon Maine’s citizens to vote for Dick Woodbury, and engage his expertise for the benefit of all. Kent Peterson Yarmouth

Conflicted lies the head that wears 2 hats It can be a challenge sometimes for local elected officials, often among the most active, motivated and involved members of our communities, to take off one hat and put on another. That’s what we believe happened last week in Freeport, where Town Councilor Sara Gideon cast a deciding vote to forgive nearly $117,000 loaned by the town to the Freeport Community Center. Besides being a councilor, Gideon is a trustee of the community center, an affiliation she has made no attempt to hide. Did her vote on a matter of financial significance to the center violate either state law or the Town Charter? Apparently not, because it afforded Gideon no personal financial gain. But did it violate the faith we place in our elected officials? There were only four councilors available to vote on the loan forgiveness proposal; two others were absent and one, Eric Pandora, abstained because he wanted further discussion of the agreement by the full council. Gideon, who recognized the appearance of a conflict of interest, could have abstained, too. That would have resulted in the lack of a quorum and delayed the vote Comment on this story at:

until enough councilors were available to make a fully informed and thoroughly vetted decision. She also could have voted – despite her affiliation with the center – against the proposal. That would have defeated the plan, but dispelled any suggestion that her vote was tainted by the outside relationship. Unfortunately, Gideon did neither of those things. She may have complied with the letter of the law by disclosing the appearance of a conflict. But the problem with the appearance of a conflict is that no matter how

Langlais in limbo As the Portland Public Art Committee ponders whether to dismantle and store “Tracing the Fore,” the stillborn sculptural installation in Boothby Square, its members might do well to consider the fate of another dismantled work of art that has been languishing in limbo for the past 30 years. In 1979, less than two years after sculptor Bernard “Blackie” Langlais died, the new The Universal owners of the Samoset Resort in Rockland removed the whimsical wooden fountain he had created for the resort, a 24-foot composition of pier pilings and carpentered sea birds and mammals. The original owners had gone bankrupt, Langlais had never been paid, and his widow disowned the desecrated fountain. Edgar Allen Beem The Portland Museum of Art came to the rescue, taking possession of the Langlais fountain. For the past 30 years, the museum has been paying to store the pieces of the fountain – a pile of pilings and 18 sea creatures – in a Portland warehouse at a mounting cost now in the tens of thousands of dollars. “My sense,” says Thomas Denenberg, Portland Museum of Art deputy director and chief curator, “is that the museum never should have been involved from the get-go. It’s a work that the estate has said is no longer the work of the artist because it has been removed from its context and mistreated.” Earlier this year, Denenberg took Jack Soley, chairman of the Portland Public Art Committee, to

the Earle W. Noyes warehouse to view the remains of the Langlais fountain. Soley thought the wooden birds might be used to mark Portland’s new Bayside Trail, but the legal and artistic limbo the fountain is in, not to mention the fragile physical condition, convinced Soley that wasn’t such a good idea after all. Soley has had his eye on another outdoor Langlais sculpture, the great Trojan Horse that stands in front of the late artist’s farmhouse in Cushing, but it seems unlikely that Langlais’s landmark wooden horse will end up in Portland. When Helen Langlais, Blackie’s widow, died earlier this year, the Langlais estate was left to the Colby College Museum of Art, which will select the pieces it wants to keep, disperse the rest, and sell the farm. The great horse would look wonderful standing beside the Colby museum, overlooking the athletic fields where the White Mules play. As for the dismembered and disowned Samoset fountain, there is now talk of trying to place it, or pieces of it, not with Colby, but perhaps with another Maine museum. “If there were an entity that could take care of it,” Denenberg says, “I’d be happy to enter into a conversation.” He suggests, however, that the only future he can imagine for the rotting remains of the Langlais fountain is as a case study for a graduate thesis is art history. If Portland does decide to de-accession “Tracing the Fore,” it might be better off scrapping it altogether, rather than consigning it to limbo in hopes of someday resurrecting it.

Maureen E. Ballenger, 54: Falmouth special ed teacher PORTLAND — Maureen Elizabeth “Moe” Ballenger, 54, of Yarmouth, died unexpectedly Sept. 19. Born in Albany, N.Y., on March 15, 1956, a daughter of Catherine (Murray) and Emmett T. Davis, she attended local schools and graduated from Mercy High School in 1974. Education was always important to her and she had a lifelong love of learning. After she received her bachelor’s degree Ballenger in 1978 from Union College in Schenectady, N.Y., she took a fellowship at the University of Texas School of Public Health. In 1980 she received her master’s degree in public health from the University of Texas in Houston. While living in Texas, she met Luke Ballenger of Arkansas and they were married on July 3, 1982. Fifteen years ago, she and her family moved to Maine and spent the last 13 years living in Yarmouth. After working in the Yarmouth and Freeport school systems, she started taking special education instruction classes at USM and earned her master’s degree in education. She took a position in the Falmouth school system, where she worked with special education students at Falmouth High School, and was most recently a special education teacher at Falmouth Middle School. A dedicated advocate for her students

and their parents, she was always ready to go to bat for them. Her interests included traveling, reading, canoeing, craft fairs and taking special pilgrimages to Bar Harbor with her husband Luke. She will be remembered for a number of wonderful things, most notably her loving care and concern for others, her warm and bubbly personality and infectious laugh. Survivors include her husband of 28 years, Luke Ballenger, III, of Yarmouth; her son, Luke Emmett Ballenger, and her daughter, Victoria Rose Ballenger, both of Yarmouth; two brothers, Emmett Davis of Minnesota, and James Davis of New York, and her sister, Catherine Davis of New York; her mother-in-law Pauline Ballenger of Arizona; six nephews; and a large circle of friends.

Easy ways to ward off winter weight gain

With winter on the horizon once again, the familiar retreat indoors is in full swing. With the colder weather comes less time spent outside, and more time spent on the couch. While it’s difficult for those who live in areas with particularly harsh winters to do much of anything outdoors once the temperatures begin their annual descent, it’s not that difficult for cold-climate dwellers to continue emphasizing their health during such months. However, the

colder climes coupled with the holidays make it easy to ignore healthier habits during the winter. As a result, many people pack on extra pounds throughout the winter months, taking advantage of all those holiday goodies while also using the bitter weather as an excuse to avoid daily exercise or healthy habits. Just because the weather outside is frightful doesn’t mean the attitude inside should be an unhealthy one. In fact, there are many ways for those stuck inside to

stay healthy this winter, no matter how many feet of snow have piled up outside. * Brown bag it. Instead of visiting the office cafeteria or the nearby food truck for lunch, pack your own lunch instead. Doing so gives individuals complete control over their own diets, enabling them to eat healthy foods instead of the often processed foods available at cafeterias or other locales that cater to the office lunch crowd. When packing lunch, choose foods that won’t be energy drainers for the afternoon. It’s often difficult enough to maintain energy after lunch when the weather is cold and

day. Such a schedule might seem radical, but it’s highly effective if done correctly. Grazing effectively helps keep blood sugar levels stable throughout the day, so people won’t get the hunger pangs they otherwise might. However, when grazing, it’s important to limit calorie consumption. It’s very easy for beginning “grazers” to overdo it with each meal, as they’re used to eating meals with lots of calories. But eating six meals per day with too many calories will likely prove disastrous. Instead, limit meals to between 200 to 300 calories and stick to the schedule of eating every 2 to 3 hours. While it will


leaving the office isn’t an option. Choose foods that will boost energy, such as fruits and vegetables. * Avoid missing meals. Perhaps due to the often hectic holiday season, many people find themselves eating whenever they can and not necessarily when they should once winter arrives. Though it can be difficult to make time during the holidays, it’s imperative to stay on a meal schedule. Skipping meals often leads to overeating, as it’s human nature to overcompensate for a missed meal by eating more when the chance presents itself. The side effects of overeating are well known and, if coupled with the more sedentary lifestyle many people live during the winter, can result in serious physical problems before the season is over. * Change eating habits. Competitive bodybuilders call it “grazing,” eating several smaller, healthier meals throughout the day instead of sitting down to the more widely accepted three meals per

likely prove a difficult adjustment at first, the results will begin to show and energy levels could rise as well. * Say so long to sugar-laden drinks. Most people would admit they eat too much sugar during the holidays. But even when the holidays have come and gone, chances are there are plenty of ways for health-conscious men and women to reduce their sugar intakes. Perhaps no way to do that is more effective than to say so long to sugary beverages, including sodas and seasonal beverages like hot chocolate. Even everyday drinks like coffee and tea can be enjoyed without sugar. It’s easy to find non- or reduced-sugar hot chocolate, and those who like sugar in their coffee can either enjoy it without sugar or simply reduce how much sugar they put in their morning cup o’ Joe. Oftentimes, what we drink is far more sugar laden than what we eat, so be on the lookout for beverages that are high in sugar.

Falmouth football drops heartbreaker

Greely, Yarmouth win again

(Ed. Note: For the full Falmouth-Cape Elizabeth game story with additional photos, please visit By Michael Hoffer The midway point of the 2010 high school football season is upon us and three local teams are in the thick of the playoff hunt. The most exciting game of last weekend came Friday night in Cape Elizabeth where Falmouth proved once and for all that it’s a legitimate contender, but the Yachtsmen couldn’t hold a 21-7 second half lead and fell to 3-1 after a 24-21 setback. Greely is also 3-1 after its third successive victory. The Rangers blanked host Lake Region, 26-0. In Western C, Yarmouth easily improved to 4-0 with a 62-0 win at Sacopee. The Clippers next face a huge test at Lisbon Saturday. Freeport fell to 1-3 after a 5614 home loss to Lisbon.

Agony Falmouth, 5-4 a year ago with no postseason, earned a statement-making 34-25 victory at York in its first game, then eas-

ily dispatched Fryeburg (44-0) and Lake Region (47-14). Friday, the Yachtsmen visited 3-0 Cape Elizabeth, last year’s Western B champion, a team they’d never beaten and lost to, 28-0, at home in 2009. Falmouth got the jump when junior Ryan MacDonald fielded the punt at his 37 and was off to the races, running untouched down the left sideline thanks to some stellar blocking en route to a 63-yard touchdown to put the Yachtsmen on top. Senior David Goodrich’s extra point made it 7-0 with 3:50 to go in the opening quarter. The lead lasted all of 11 seconds as Capers junior Derek Roberts received the ensuing kickoff at his 10 and rumbled untouched up the middle of the field 90-yards to paydirt. The Yachtsmen’s offense then came to life as on second-and-10 from the 31, senior quarterback Zach Alexander dropped back and launched a rainbow down the left sideline for junior Jack Cooleen, who used his size and leaping ability to make a jumping catch over Cape Elizabeth senior Cyrus Wolfinger before breaking a tackle and rumbling 69-yards for the score. Goodrich’s kick made it 14-7

Falmouth senior quarterback Zach Alexander finds momentary space amid the Cape Elizabeth defense Friday night. The Yachtsmen couldn’t hold a second half lead and suffered a 24-21 setback.

Falmouth with 3:19 to go in the first, capping a run of three touchdowns in 31 seconds. Just five seconds into the second period, Alexander and Cooleen hooked up for a 4-yard TD, capping a seven-play drive. Goodrich’s extra point made it 21-7. “Nobody had scored on them, but we put up 21 points and proved we could move the ball,” said Falmouth coach John Fitzsimmons.

Cape Elizabeth began its comeback late in the third quarter with a passing touchdown to make it a 21-14 contest. With 7:56 left in the game, Falmouth had to punt from deep in its territory and a bad snap led to a safety making it 21-16. Then, with just 1:28 left to play, senior Jack McDonald (who didn’t even handle the ball in the first 24 minutes) scored on a 1-yard TD run. The Capers added the two-point conversion and their defense denied one final


Yachtsmen drive to win, 24-21. “We got pinned down and it caused problems for us,” Fitzsimmons said. “Getting pinned gave momentum to them. You can’t leave your defense out there that long without something going wrong.” Falmouth left the field in despair, but knows it made a positive statement and will be a factor going forward. “That was a magnificent high school football game all the way to the final seconds,” Fitzsimmons said. “Cape played really well. I give them credit. I’m proud of my players. It was a wonderful team effort. What we learned is we’re ready to be a playoff team.” The Yachtsmen got a solid performance from Alexander, who was 10-of-20 passing for 160 yards and two TDs (along with two interceptions). He also gained 29 yards on five rushes. Cooleen caught three first half balls for 92 yards and two TDs, but was held without a catch in the second half. Falmouth will seek to rebound Saturday at 1 p.m., when it finally opens its new turf field against Wells (3-1). A year ago,

Drama, triumph continue for sports teams in Forecaster Country (Ed. Note: For the full Yarmouth-Cape Elizabeth boys’ and Falmouth-Greely girls’ soccer stories, please visit By Michael Hoffer As the stretch run of the 2010 fall sports season grows nearer, teams are keeping a closer eye on the standings and will look to make the most of every remaining outing. Here’s a look at where things stand as September gives way to October:

Boys’ soccer Yarmouth’s boys’ soccer team is still unbeaten, despite a challenging schedule and even an unforeseen power outage. Last Thursday, the Clippers went to unbeaten Cape Elizabeth, put up the first goal the Capers had allowed all year (from senior Luke Pierce in the first half), then, after the hosts rallied to tie the score, the power went out with a couple minutes remaining and the teams agreed to settle for a 1-1 tie. “It’s rough,” said Pierce. “Toward the end of the game, it got so competitive with both teams playing really hard. It’s

unfortunate to end like this, but it’s better than someone being up 1-0 and there being time left and the game being called. Still, it’s tough, but I guess we can settle for this.” Yarmouth improved to 6-0-1 (good for second behind Maranacook in the latest Western Class B Heal Points standings) Friday with a 1-0 win at Fryeburg. Pierce had the lone goal. The Clippers were home against crosstown rival North Yarmouth Academy Tuesday, go to York Thursday and host Freeport next Tuesday. Falmouth is still looking to find its stride. After back-toback losses at Yarmouth and Cape Elizabeth, the Yachtsmen improved to 5-2 (fourth in Western B) with one goal wins at Greely (1-0) and Gray-New Gloucester (2-1, in overtime) last week. Sophomore J.P. White had the lone goal versus the Rangers. Junior Brandon Tuttle scored in regulation against the Patriots and senior Sam White had the winner in the second five-minute overtime. Falmouth was home with

York Tuesday, visits Freeport Thursday and hosts Greely Saturday before going to York next Tuesday. Freeport entered the week 2-5-1 and 12th in the Heals after a 1-0 home win over Poland and a 5-0 home loss to York last week. In the victory, senior Ryan Farley played the hero with the lone goal. The Falcons were at Greely Tuesday, host Falmouth Thursday and go to Yarmouth next Tuesday. In Western A, Greely is in need of some big victories if it wants to keep its 10-year postseason streak alive. The Rangers dropped recent showdowns against Heal Points-rich Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth and Yarmouth, but improved to 4-3 on the year Saturday with a 5-1 win at Lake Region. Senior Jon Coyne led the way with a pair of goals. Greely (12th in the Heals, only the top nine qualify for the playoffs) was home against Freeport Tuesday, visits Falmouth Saturday and goes to Cape Elizabeth next Tuesday. In Western C, NYA improved

to 3-2 last week with wins at A.R. Gould (11-4) and Sacopee (2-0). Junior Matt Michaud had three goals in the win over A.R. Gould. Freshman Jackson Cohan-Smith added a pair. Against the Hawks, Michaud had both goals. The Panthers (ninth in the Heals) played at Yarmouth Tues-

day and host rival Waynflete Saturday.

Recap from previous page beth last Thursday, then blanked visiting Fryeburg, 5-0, Friday. Against the Capers, senior Devin Simsarian scored twice and senior Courtney Barker added a goal. Senior Jeanna Lowery and sophomore Tess Merrill had assists. Simsarian added three more goals in the win over the Raiders and senior Danielle Torres scored twice. The Falcons are enjoying their best season since 2005, the last time they made the playoffs. Freeport won, 3-2, at Poland last Wednesday, then fell, 5-0, at York Friday, but is still 5-2-1 on the season (good for eighth in the standings). In the victory over the Knights, senior Katee Poulin, junior Jess Hench and sophomore Aubrey Pennell all scored to help erase a 2-0 deficit. The Falcons were home against Greely

Tuesday and go to Yarmouth Monday. Falmouth has continued to win despite its in-season coaching change. Last Wednesday, the Yachtsmen went to Greely and held on for a hard-fought 1-0 win behind a first half from senior Jessie L’Heureux. Coach Jon Meek, who replaced Jon Shardlow the week before had also stepped down the day prior to the game (he returned by week’s end and is expected to finish the season), so the team was led against the Rangers by longtime assistant Cooper Higgins. “For me it’s a thrill,” said Higgins, the one-time Falmouth High athletic director. “I can’t thank the girls enough. It was a great effort in a hard situation. I’m really pleased how they rose to the challenge. All things considered, it’s a great storyline for a team that’s been down and out.” “We needed to prove to everyone that

we can still do this,” L’Heureux added. “It was frustrating not scoring more, but one goal was enough.” The win was the third in a row for the Yachtsmen, who improved to 6-1 (fifth in the Heals). Falmouth faced a huge test Tuesday at York, in a rematch of last year’s regional final (a 2-0 Wildcats win). “We want to win states,” said L’Heureux. “York’s our biggest rival. We want to beat them bad.” The Yachtsmen open their new turf field Friday night against Greely. Tuesday of next week, they host York. The loss was the third in a row for the Rangers, but they bounced back with wins over visiting Lake Region (2-1) and host Gray-New Gloucester (3-1) to improve to 4-3 (13th in Western A). Junior Libby Thomas and freshman Teal Otley scored to help Greely rally against the Lakers. In the win over the Patriots, Thomas, senior Kelly Burrell and junior Audrey Parolin scored, while sophomore Sammi Toorish and freshman Allie Morrill added assists. The Rangers were at Freeport Tuesday, play at Falmouth Friday and host Cape Elizabeth Tuesday. Greely needs some big wins and fast. “Fortunately, because we do have such a tough schedule, the good side is we can get (Heal Points) quickly,” Rangers coach Michael Kennedy said. “The down side is that it’s tough to get those points. Games against York (Oct. 7 and 12) will be pivotal. We have to try and beat (Falmouth) there. “Last year, it was such a veteran group. It was like coaching a college team. This is a talented team. They’re getting it. We’re just really young. The big thing for us is shots on goal. We haven’t had enough shots on goal to beat a quality team. We have the players who can do it. We still need some quality wins.” In Western C, NYA continues to struggle for wins, putting the Panthers’ 12-year

postseason streak in jeopardy. Last week, fell to 1-4-1 after a 2-1 home loss to Old Orchard Beach and a 1-1 tie against visiting Sacopee. Against the Seagulls, sophomore Molly Strabley had the lone goal. In the tie, NYA benefited from an “own goal” by the Hawks. The Panthers (13th in the Heals) hosted Yarmouth Tuesday, welcome Waynflete Saturday and play host to Poland next Tuesday.

Field hockey

NYA’s field hockey juggernaut has bounced back quite nicely from its first regular season loss since 2008. As of Tuesday, the Panthers were second to Telstar in the Western C Heals with a 9-1 mark after recent victories over visiting Waynflete (11-0), Sacopee (4-0), Old Orchard Beach (10-1) and host Freeport (5-0). Against the Flyers, junior Megan Fortier scored three goals and added three assists. Classmate Kylie Dalbec had two goals and two assists and senior Frances Leslie and junior Katherine Millett both scored twice. Fortier scored twice more and Dalbec and Millett added a goal and an assist against Sacopee. In the win over the Seagulls, Millett had four goals and two assists, Fortier added a pair of goals and assists and sophomore Jen Brown scored twice. Against the Falcons, Fortier scored twice. NYA hosted Traip Wednesday, welcomes Poland Saturday and closes the regular season next week with games at Falmouth (Tuesday) and Waynflete (Thursday). Freeport had a two-game win streak snapped by NYA. Last week, the Falcons won, 3-1, at Traip (as Sydney Ambrose scored two goals and Mia Thomas had one with two assists. Kayla Thurlow also had an assist, while Emily Daniel made 17 saves) and 6-0 over visiting Poland behind three goals from Katie Turner, two from Ambrose and one from Thurlow.

Falmouth football from page 15 the Yachtsmen almost upset the host Warriors, falling, 26-20. “It will be fun to finally have a home game,” Fitzsimmons said. “I think (this loss is) just a speed bump. I feel it’s a good lesson. We know we can play with (Cape). We don’t feel like we’re out of their league.”

No worries Greely eclipsed its 2009 win total Friday night. The Rangers put forth a dominant defensive performance at winless Lake Region and had the victory all but sewn up by halftime. A short run from senior Justin Moore gave Greely all the points it would need and a 6-0 lead after one period. Senior Ethan Wyman doubled the lead with a 4-yard run, Moore returned a punt for a TD and sophomore Svenn Jacobson scored on a 14-yard scamper to account for the 26-0 final score. Greely can make a big statement Friday when it hosts York (2-2). The Wildcats were one of the preseason favorites, but have struggled. Last year, in York, Greely lost, 25-0. The Rangers still have games upcoming against Mountain Valley, Cape Elizabeth and Falmouth and will have a lot to say about which teams make the Western B postseason. Yarmouth faced an undermanned Sacopee squad Friday night on the road. The Clippers put it away after one quarter, scoring six touchdowns. Junior Anders Overhaug got the party started with a 13yard TD run. Freshman Brady Neujahr threw a TD pass to senior Asa Arden to make it 14-0. Seniors Nick Prosica, Billy Clabby, Nate Pingitore and sophomore Caleb Uhl all added TD runs to make it 42-0 just 12 minutes in. Neujahr hooked up with junior Dennis Erving from 43 yards out to make it 49-0 at the break. Clabby and freshman Matt Woodbury added second half TD runs to give Yarmouth the 62-0 victory. The Clippers go to 4-0 Lisbon Saturday at 1:30 p.m. Last year, Yarmouth had no trouble with the visiting Greyhounds, winning, 48-26. “It’s going to be an enormous game,” said Clippers coach Jim Hartman. “Lisbon’s a very good team, very well-disciplined, extremely well-coached. They

scheme to confuse the other team and force you to make choices. They have a good quarterback and tailback. Both were out of last year’s game early. It’s a game of matchups. Whoever makes the least mistakes should be in good shape.” The winner will have the inside track on a high playoff seed and homefield advantage. “We’re sitting pretty,” Hartman said. “It would be nice for the program to have a home playoff game.”

Staying competitive Freeport dropped two of its first three games, but put scares into defending Class C champion Dirigo (25-12) and Madison (26-24) in the process. The Falcons rolled, 34-0, at Sacopee, for their lone win. Saturday, Freeport hosted Lisbon and only trailed the potent Greyhounds, 6-0, after one period, and pulled even at 6-6 early in the second on a long TD run from sophomore Cory Aldecoa, but the visitors

Recap from page 16 and Korissa Lavers each had one assist. Megan Peacock made three saves. Daniel made 25 saves in the loss to NYA. Freeport (6-4 and fifth in Western C) played at Waynflete Wednesday, visits Sacopee Friday and closes the regular year next week at Old Orchard Beach (Tuesday) and Yarmouth (Thursday). In Western B, Greely is 7-3 and second to York in Western B. Last week, the Rangers sandwiched wins at Gray-New Gloucester (2-0) and at home over Yarmouth (5-1) around a 2-1 double overtime home loss to Falmouth. Senior Jackie Andrews had a goal and an assist and sophomore Jessica Wilson also scored against the Patriots. Andrews scored twice in the win over the Clippers.

Junior CeCi Hodgkins had the goal against the Yachtsmen. Monday, Greely fell to 7-3 on the season after a 2-1 loss at Cape Elizabeth. The Rangers fell behind 2-0 at halftime, but got back in it when sophomore Rachel Hanson scored with 25:12 to play. Despite several chances, Greely could get no closer and went down to defeat. “I don’t think we’ve down by two goals this year,” said Rangers coach Kristina Prescott. “That’s tough mentally to get past. As the second-ranked team, everyone’s gunning for us.” Greely played at Lake Region Wednesday, has a huge home test against defending regional champion York Friday and closes the regular season next week at home against Cape Elizabeth (Tuesday) and Wells (Thursday). “It’s a tough schedule,” Prescott said.

“We’ll see what we can do. There’s no standout team this year. It’ll make for interesting playoffs, that’s for sure. We just want to get there. The kids want states this year.” Falmouth also hopes to make it to the playoffs (the Yachtsmen have gone 13 straight seasons), but has work to do. It was ninth in the Western B Heals as of Tuesday and only seven teams qualify. Falmouth got a big lift from its win over Greely (senior Stephanie Gramse had both goals in the 2-1 victory, including the OT winner). However, the Yachtsmen sandwiched losses to visiting Fryeburg (3-0) and host Gray-New Gloucester (1-0, in double OT) around the win and are now 3-6. Falmouth was scheduled to host York in the first game on its new turf field Monday, but the newly painted lines were washed away by rain and the game had to be postponed (a rescheduled date was not released by deadline). The Yachtsmen were at Wells Wednesday, visit Fryeburg Friday, host NYA Tuesday, then close the regular season at home against Cape Elizabeth Oct. 8. Yarmouth has been much more competitive of late, but hasn’t been able to crack the win column. Last Thursday, the Clippers battled visiting playoff-bound Cape Elizabeth before falling, 2-1. Senior Lindsey Purpura scored and senior Cassidy Cleaves made 16 saves. Cleaves made 27 stops in a 5-1 home loss to Greely Saturday (junior Rachel Nixon scored). Monday, Yarmouth fell to 0-9-1 after a 2-1 home loss to Frye-

Recap from page 18 run at the Maine cross-country Festival of Champions in Belfast Saturday.

Golf The golf postseason is right around the corner. The qualifier for the girls’ state tournament is Thursday at Willowdale Golf Club in Scarborough. The Western Maine Conference qualifier is Friday at Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro, site of the team state championships (Oct. 9) and individual championships (Oct. 16). Falmouth improved to 7-1 Monday with a 6-1 win over Yarmouth, which dropped to 3-5. Greely improved to 6-3 Monday after downing Cape Elizabeth, 5-2. Freeport is 3-6 and NYA 6-4.

Volleyball Falmouth’s volleyball team entered the week with a 7-0 mark, second to Mt. Desert Island in the Class A Heals. The Yachtsmen held off visiting Scarborough 3-1 (25-22, 25-23, 15-25, 25-23) last Thursday. Falmouth hoped to stay unbeaten Tuesday when it hosted Gorham. Monday of next week, the Yachtsmen are home against Kennebunk. One other note on Falmouth: Its two showdowns with Greely (which will be a rematch of last year’s state final) have been rescheduled. The Rangers visit the Yachtsmen Oct. 12. Falmouth goes to Greely two nights later. Greely is third in the Class A Heals with a 6-1 mark after rolling at Cony Monday, 3-0, in its first countable match in 11 days. The Rangers were at Scarborough Tuesday, visit Biddeford Thursday as they look to avenge their lone loss and Friday visit MDI. Yarmouth was a 3-0 winner at Cape Elizabeth Friday to improve to 3-4. Senior Abbie Hutchinson had 12 kills. Junior Cathy Agro had six service points, two aces and three blocks. Freshman Grace Mallett had three aces and. Sophomore Lindsay

Tyler had seven digs. “After playing our last four matches against the top four teams in the league, this match came at a good time for us as our spirits were a little down after losing four in a row,” said Yarmouth coach Jim Senecal.

Public records from page 1 website, directs requesters to the state statute for the definition of a public record, which is a lengthy description that also includes a list of documents that are not considered public records. But Mal Leary, president of the Maine

We take Coffee Seriously! • Single Origin and Custom Blends • Hand Crafted Espresso Drinks Served Hot or Cold

Freedom of Information Coalition, said the town has added language that goes beyond the state statute. Leary took particular issue with language in the protocol that requires a record “be inspected, by appointment, during normal business hours at a time and in a manner that ensures protection of the records and does not disrupt or obstruct the smooth functioning of the department that is the custodian of the record.” It goes on to say that if a requester is seeking to copy a record, it “shall be copied during the regular business hours on a schedule that does not disrupt the functioning of the department.” “That language is so broad, it does not define the ‘smooth function’ of the depart-

ment. You must define those terms. If you don’t, it’s up to interpretation,” Leary said. The protocol also directs the requester to contact the designated public access officer, which is further defined for the town as the town manager or his designee and for the schools, the executive assistant to the superintendent. Leary took issue with the vagueness of this definition and suggested the town more clearly define who a requester should contact. The new protocol includes a fee schedule that defines the cost of black-and-white copies at 10 cents a piece, plotter copies at $5 per page, police reports at $1 per page, police photos at $10 a piece and meeting DVDs and police recordings at $20 each.

Comment on this story at:

Poore said these fees do not apply to digital documents that are transferred to the requester electronically, but would apply to hard copies of documents that must be scanned. The protocol refers to the state statute when referencing fees that requesters could be charged for the labor required to obtain documents. State law requires the first hour of information gathering be free; thereafter the town or school can charge $10 per hour to research and obtain the requested documents. The protocol states that the town or school can require an employee to be present while the requester reviews or copies the records and, if the requester wants to copy the records off site, the town and school can request to have an employee present at the time the record is copied. In those cases, the town or school “shall charge the person copying the record any costs incurred by the town in providing an employee or official to be present to protect the record or records.” “If they want to bring a cop in to stand guard, they can only charge $10 per hour,” Leary said. “I understand their frustration, but they can’t do it. To require a person to be present and (that person) has to be paid for – that’s illegal. The first hour has to be free.” In addition, the protocol mirrors the statute, stating that the public access officer can waive the fees associated with records collection in certain circumstances. “I can imagine a fee waiver for the press, especially if it’s for a story for the public benefit,” Poore said. “But I don’t think it’s a blank check for the press either.” Both Poore and Powers said requests would be evaluated, and any fee waiver requests would be determined, on a caseby-case basis.

Out & About

New seasons get underway By Scott Andrews The Portland Symphony Orchestra and the University of Southern Maine School of Music open their 2010-2011 seasons this weekend with concerts in the Port City and Gorham. USM’s School of Music begins its Spotlight Series Friday and Sunday with pianist Laura Kargul performing a program that features two great Romantic composers. The PSO plays its first program twice, on Sunday and Tuesday. Maestro Robert Moody will take the podium; double bassist Edgar Meyer will be the guest artist. Lyric Music Theater opened its 58th season last weekend in South Portland with a superb community production of “Evita,” a seven-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical. Another noteworthy musical event is Ahmad Hassan Muhammad Trio, a modern jazz threesome that plays Oct. 6 at One Longfellow Square in Portland.

Laura Kargul In 2010 music aficionados are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of two great Romantic pianistcomposers: Frederic Chopin and Robert Schumann. On Friday, Oct. 1, I’ll be celebrating by attending a ChopinSchumann concert performed by Laura Kargul, a resident of Freeport and professor of piano at the University of Maine School of Music. Kargul’s recital is the 2010-2011 season-opener of USM’s Spotlight Series. She represents USM star power, consistently opening the series and drawing the biggest audiences – which usually include me. This year’s recital is expected to attract so many that two performances are slated, on Friday and Sunday. Kargul is of Polish descent and was deeply involved in the Polish community in her native Detroit. That makes her lifelong connection to Polish-born Chopin especially

Ahmad Hassan Muhammad Trio The guest artist will be an unusual treat: a traveling A couple of weeks ago I attended a concert by an updouble bassist – rare breed, indeed – who turns his super- and-coming modern jazz trio, and I came away extremely impressed by the musical experience and the young man who leads the group. Ahmad Hassan Muhammad is a pianist-composer who originally hails from the Cincinnati area and recently graduated from Bowdoin College. Today he lives in Portland and fronts an eponymous jazz trio that has been making waves locally and will soon be hitting the road on a national tour. I find it significant that Muhammad deliberately chose a liberal arts education at Bowdoin, rather than attending a conservatory where the total focus is on developing professional performers. The pianist studied with Naydene Bowder at Bowdoin and commuted to Boston to work with Aaron Goldberg. Muhammad credits the latter with inspiring his creative muse and helping him discover his own distinctive musical voice and style. At the recent concert I attended, about 90 percent of the selections were original compositions. Muhammad is solidly backed by bassist Stu Mahan and drummer Phil McGowan, who trade solo roles with ease and truly work as a team. Their joint efforts are characterized by strong melodic lines and gently pulsating rhythms that mesmerize listeners and carry audiences along for a ride. The Ahmad Hassan Muhammad Trio experience can be likened to a musical bubble bath: at once intimate, scintillating, sensual and soothing. Come get intimate with this wonderful threesome at Oct. 6 at One Longfellow Square in Portland (corner of Congress and State) at 8 p.m. Call 761-1757. Comment on this story at:

“Funds should only be borrowed if there is a common-sense doable plan in place for repayment,” Richard said, adding that what is sensible may not be popular. Richard He said he would support a full audit of all state departments and seeks to reduce the size of government, improve the business environment, create partnerships with the private sector, reform welfare and support education. Richard said he would listen to Falmouth citizens’ views about the existing state debt before crafting any type of solution to the pension crisis.

“Every day Mainers are facing and solving debt, insurance and retirement issues in their homes and businesses. It is time to learn about their ideas and incorporate them into a clear strategy aimed to fix the problem,” he said. On the topic of legalizing gay marriage, Richard said it was an issue that should be handled by a citizens’ referendum as it had been in the past. Richard said his experience as an Eagle Scout taught him to be prepared and he would advocate common sense in the Legislature, while being a bridge to connect ideas with positive results.

tee in 1993, and said he worked to create an efficient and fiscally responsible school budget. He wants to do the same at the state level, he said. “As a state representative, I hope to bring those same attributes to the Legislature, with an emphasis on putting the lid on any tax increases and rolling back the budget to one that matches the state’s realistic ability to pay,” he said. He said helping to fix the state’s financial crises is his primary goal for running for this position. “This is an enormous problem. It is like starting all over,” he said. “Maine needs to find good, determined, disciplined people who understand the problem and are able to fix it.”

Weinstein said his experience managing budgets in the military and his life experiences will prove beneficial in Augusta. He said a “tough-love” approach to the state budget will be essential to focus on the lax tax and spend culture prevailing over the last 30 years. According to Weinstein, the projected state pension crises is unfortunate, and all the parties involved will have to negotiate “pragmatic and realistic changes to the existing pension plans.” He said it is an issue that cannot be ignored any longer, and the Legislature must do whatever it takes to restore fiscal sanity to the state pension crises. He said if the same-sex marriage issue resurfaces, and if a substantial cross-section of individual constituents are interested in

voting in another referendum, Weinstein would support another referendum bill. He said in addition to limiting tax increases and minimizing the budget, another element essential to streamlining government and improving the economy would be to reduce and or eliminate paperwork and programs that do not benefit the economy or governmental operations. “I am retired, I have no vested interests, and I have nothing to gain financially by running to be a state representative,” he said. “I want what is good for the state of Maine, and I want it to be the state it can be.” His website is

Tax relief is another issue, Graham said, noting that while the governor and Legislature often say taxes will not be raised, people in local communities ultimately have to raise their own taxes in order to fund education. She said she hopes to work with the governor so that promises made in Augusta are fulfilled, Graham including funding education at 55 percent. “My concern is that they shift the tax burden to the local communities, and then we end up having ... battles over whether we’re going to educate our children or whether we’re going to be able to afford our property taxes,” she said. Graham noted that jobs should be grown in fields such as technology and health care. She said Maine should market itself as a beautiful place to live, work and raise families.

Graham, who concluded a three-year term on the North Yarmouth Board of Selectmen this year, also started the North Yarmouth Economic Development and Sustainability Committee. She represented North Yarmouth on the school consolidation committee and was president of Foundation 51, the educational foundation for Cumberland and North Yarmouth schools. Graham has also served on the Governor’s Advisory Council on Health Systems Development, which writes the state health plan and looks at insurance payment reform, and the board of directors of the Autism Society of Maine. Graham lost to Austin by 219 votes in 2006 and 197 votes in 2008. “I’m somebody who can really get the job done,” she said, also adding that “my goal is to represent all the people of our communities, regardless of what political party they’re in.”

from page 3 ing that the state will need to re-amortize the debt and recalculate the unfunded actuarial liability using realistic figures. Nelson supported the equal marriage bill and said she supports equal rights for all Maine citizens, including another bill that would legalize gay marriage. Nelson said she worked with other legislators to get funding for home weatherization and rebates for those investing in renewable energy in their homes. She noted her bill to enable Falmouth to join the METRO bus system was passed unanimously.

Cameron. Harris attended Cheverus High School and the University of Southern Maine. He is an advisory board member of the Savings Bank of Maine. Harris said he believes the fact he has no political experience makes him the best candidate. His experience as a businessman, he said, has given him “work ethic, inspiration and common sense,” and he’d like to bring those traits to Augusta. Working with budgets for his business every day, Harris said it is important to recognize that “if you don’t have the money, you can’t spend it.” “I know cuts aren’t easy, but you look at everything and find a way to make it work,” he said. He also said that because his wife is a school teacher, he has a unique perspective on education needs.

Mark Richard Republican candidate Richard, 46, is a lead executive and Realtor at Keller Williams Realty, as well as an executive with the Boy Scouts of America. Richard is a University of Southern Maine graduate and a military veteran. He and his wife Tammy, who is also a Realtor, have two adult children and a grandchild. Richard said his experience as an executive for nonprofit and for-profit businesses taught him to identify revenue available for spending and to stay within that amount.

Frank said his education and experience have given him a “profound understanding” of economics. “I’m young and energetic, and eager to tackle the big problems that face our state,” he said. “I’m not interested in a career in politics, so I don’t need to focus on getting re-elected. I will vote according to my principles, and support the rights of the people, and never compromise what I know to be right.”

Anne Graham Graham, 51, is a pediatric nurse practitioner who works for Portland’s school-based health clinics. The Maine native is married and has three sons. She said she is running because “I think it’s important that we have someone who works hard to try to deal with the many problems that we have, like lack of jobs, and a poor economy, and the need to have health care for all.”

The plan also suggests creating a policy that will maintain buildings with historic significance, while allowing for improvements, expansions and updates to the buildings. The plan proposes a survey of potentially historic buildings and structures and developing a list of locally significant historic properties. It suggests conducting a design analysis of historic buildings to catalog the key elements that need to be considered in the modification of historically significant buildings, and creating an advisory review process for changes to the exteriors of designated historic buildings or structures. “I think these changes are good for the times and the community. They will help us preserve what we like about the town, but will move us forward and allow us to grow a little more than we had in the

Webster said working in a bipartisan manner to assure good, ethical solutions is his priority, even if it requires disagreements. His said his experience balancing the growth and contraction of business plans, employees and budgets in a small business as well as on the Appropriations Committee has enabled him to understand and work with the state budget. He said with declining student numbers and reduced school funding, the Legislature needs to make long-term decisions in order to continue proper funding for the education of Maine children. “While many are proud of the equality of education in RSU 5 and want us to expand programming for more excellence, a number of constituents have shared their concerns about how many of their tax dollars are spent on education,” he said. “It is essential to do what we can to continue supporting 21st century job, education and quality of life goals.” Webster said as a member of the Appropriations Committee, he is responsible to work with the state employees retirement system to address the pension shortfall and develop a plan to propose to the full Legislature and residents of Maine in January. He said they will review all proposals to find the best possible solution. “I believe we should present a proposal which will maintain a constitutional mandate to assure for a stable retirement system,” he said. “There are several factors including the number of retirees and cost of living adjustments that create the projected

liability.” He said he will support another bill legalizing same-sex marriage if one surfaces. He said any proposed legislation should allow equal rights without taking away from any person’s right to celebrate and honor traditional marriages. “The Maine Constitution says that all people are born free, independent, with rights to pursue and obtain safety and happiness,” he said. “I believe that marriage equality legislation will add to Maine people and society’s safety and happiness.” He said as a representative for the past six years, he has advocated for the residents of his district by continuing to address job growth, clean water, improving transportation and heating fuel assistance. He said ensuring job growth and educational opportunities are his priorities, and he will focus on Freeport’s economic development and the success of Brunswick Landing, which is attracting businesses and creating jobs for residents. Webster said while he wishes emergency medical dispatch services could remain in Freeport, he said the Town Council made the best decision it could, and he will not second guess that decision. Webster said since its implementation, RSU 5 has settled into an effective organization. He said many parents are pleased with the quality of education and opportunities for their children due to reorganization, but he continues to take concerns to the Legislative Education Committee for further improvements.

the small business and the business sector.” Strang Burgess noted that she has not only supported businesses, but has done it herself with her own company: “I’ve signed both sides of the paycheck, and I employ 19 people.” She said she seeks to return Maine to a more healthy business climate, “which means more jobs ... providing jobs so that our kids can stay (in Maine) after school.” Education is also important, she said, particularly with regard to getting children off on the right track. In her second term Strang Burgess served on the Joint Standing Committee on Health and Human Services, and she also serves on the Maine Children’s Growth Council. Strang Burgess said “we have some major, major issues to face in the next session to protect our most vulnerable population.” She said she brings common sense and a strong work ethic to the table. In her four years in Augusta, she said, she has proved that she digs into every issue and is an independent voice, “and I do what I think is the right thing to represent my constituency.” Strang Burgess, who waged a successful 18-month battle with breast cancer after being diagnosed 11 years ago, noted that while she does not claim to have all the answers, “I think that I am smart enough to figure out how to make the system work or support my four communities that I represent.” Alex Lear can be reached at 373-9060 ext. 113 or
