Aging Yarmouth library may seek $1M in renovations

Gather bets on local, aims for affordable By Will Graff YARMOUTH — A new restaurant on Main Street hopes its commitment to regional farms and producers will have a lasting impact on the local food scene. Gather, which opened in mid-September, is an 80-seat restaurant at the Route 1 Main Street exit. It has a focus on locally farmed food and community-centered, casual dining. The restaurant is in an old Masonic hall, with the kitchen highlighted on the former stage and the walls decorated with old-time farm implements, which the owner, Matt Chappell, dusted off from his sister’s farmhouse. A 16-foot communal table is the centerpiece, made from former bowling alley lanes, arrows included. “I looked for it specifically,” said Chappell, who harvested the lanes from a former Gardiner bowling alley called Lucky Strikes. “The commu-

By Will Graff YARMOUTH — The pungent odor of burning electric wiring is never a welcome sensation in a building. And that’s especially true if the building lacks a sprinkler system, adequate fire escapes and is lined wall-to-wall with books. But it was the case about a year ago at Merrill Memorial Library on Main Street, according to Director Heidi Grimm, who, along with the library’s Board of Trustees, is now advocating for a $1 million borrowing measure on the June 2013 ballot to make preventative renovations and other updates to the building. Although firefighters never found the source of the odor last year, they recommended the building, which still contains some original 1905 wiring, be brought up to code, Grimm said. The majority of the proposed renovations would be behind the walls: a new sprinkler system and other less “glamorous” items, Grimm said, with the exception of a new, extended covered entrance. In 1988, the library was ex-

Work to begin on Portland-Falmouth bridge By Amber Cronin PORTLAND — Construction of a new Martin’s Point bridge is about to begin. CPM Constructors has set up a staging area for work on the bridge, which connects Veranda Street with Route 1 in Falmouth. Although a concrete time line for the project is not expected until later this month, Carol Morris, spokeswoman for the Freeport-based contractor, said work will be underway soon.

“They are really just mobilizing right now and starting to have regular construction meetings,” Morris said. “Typically (the time line) is something we only put out a little bit at a time because construction tends to be very flexible.” Plans for the $23 million replacement were announced in early July. The winning bid for the project, from CPM and Massachusetts-based engineering firm Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, came in $7 million less

CPM Constructors, the contractor for construction of a new bridge between Veranda Street in Portland and Route 1 in Falmouth, has begun setting up staging areas in the lower parking lot of Martin’s Point. The existing bridge, which carries nearly 1,500 cars per day, will remain open during construction, which is expected to be completed in 2014.

than estimated costs. Proposals for a bridge connecting Portland and Falmouth date back to 1807, but the original bridge over the mouth of the Presumpscot River was not built until 1828. It operated as a toll bridge until it was destroyed by ice in 1861. It was reconstructed in 1868, after the Civil War, with wooden piles that are still a favorite perch for sea birds.

DICK STATESENATE

WOODBURY

By David Treadwell TOPSHAM — Gary Fogg is a Renaissance man, and he believes that every citizen has a duty to be informed about history, government, religion and science. He’s a maverick who spent a year between high school and college working minimum-wage jobs and driving a 1967 Volkswagen bug across the U.S. to explore the country, especially its state and national parks. And he’s a superstar volunteer, giving joyfully of his time and talents to causes he believes in. A constant theme runs throughout Fogg’s life, be it at work or play: his passion for

our ethical relation with the land and with each other. After graduating from Bates College in Lewiston, Fogg served as a land manager and planner in Massachusetts and Maine before starting his own consulting firm, Land & People LLC, in Topsham in 1991. He assisted towns and developers in addressing issues related to land use planning. And true to his collaborative spirit, he would often work alongside other consultants on projects. While maintaining his consulting practice, Fogg provided his expertise to several committees in Topsham: the Conservation Commission, the Comprehensive Plan Committee, the Planning Board, and the Quality of Life Ordinance Committee, among others. Fogg shut down his consulting firm in 2009 and began seeking other outlets for his passion. He’d long been a supporter of the Brunswick & Topsham Land Trust,

N. Yarmouth panel plans to present revised charter next year By Alex Lear NORTH YARMOUTH — The town's Charter Commission is working its way toward a set of recommendations that could go to a vote next June. The group, charged with reviewing North Yarmouth's 30-year-old Town Charter and potentially recommending changes in the town's governmental structure, began meeting Aug. 1, Chairwoman Audrey Lones said. The commission next meets on Oct. 24, and "we're going to ... move ahead with what we've heard so far, and start to do a little drafting," Lones said, adding that the group's target is a public hearing at the end of November. The commission held hearings in August and last month. It has heard input on subjects including how to lighten the load of the Board of Selectmen, Lones said, and expansion of the role of the administrative assistant to something more similar to a town manager. The charter, about six pages long, is considered by some to be too thin, Lones said. It does not include specific responsibilities of the Board of Selectmen, or how elected officials can be removed from office, she noted. "We've looked at a lot of other charters from a number of towns and identified

some things that would help clarify roles and responsibilities," Lones said. Everyone the commission has heard from wants to maintain Town Meeting, Lones said. But some people have complained that the gatherings have been sparsely attended since being moved from March to June. Approvals of budgets and ordinances both take place at Town Meeting. "Oftentimes, those ordinance changes are typos, edits ... and it seems like people are encouraging us to perhaps ... provide legislative responsibilities to the Board of Selectmen, so ordinances can be enacted more quickly," outside of Town Meeting, Lones said. The charter has undergone some changes over the past three decades, including increasing the size of the Board of Selectmen from three to five members, but most changes have been minor, Lones said. She also noted that the Charter Commission is independent of the selectmen. "We're working for the citizens," she said, "and it's not meant to be little revisions; it's meant to be a review, to see what's working for the town now, and to

anticipate what we may need in the future." The commission plans to gather initial input through January 2013 and then prepare its preliminary report in time for a vote next June on a revised charter. "The members of the commission are a really good group of people, and a good cross-section of the community," Lones said. "People who have lived here for a long time, others who are more recent to North Yarmouth." Along with Lones, the members are Alvin Alhers, Richard Brobst, Nancy French, Lincoln Merrill, Clark Whittier, Shana Cook Mueller, John Shumadine and Ande Smith. Go to the Charter Commission tab at

Cumberland council OKs zone change, storage shed By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — The Town Council unanimously approved the conversion Monday of four lots from Industrial zoning to Rural Residential 2. The change, recommended by the Planning Board, concerns lots at the corner of Blackstrap Road and Goose Pond Road, in the western part of town. Jason Copp will likely build a house on one of those

lots, owned by his uncle, Mark Kuntz, which requires the change to residential zoning, according to Town Manager Bill Shane. Kuntz’s property is about 40 feet above the active part of the Industrial Zone, near a partially spent gravel pit, but is of a largely residential nature, Shane said. Three adjacent lots – two owned by Kuntz and another owned by other

Incumbent Nelson, newcomer Jones vie for Falmouth House seat By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — Neither candidate in Maine House District 112 is a stranger to politics. Rep. Mary P. Nelson, DFalmouth, is the two-term incumbent. Her opponent, Republican John Logan Jones, has never run for elected office before. But Jones worked for the past year on U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, and was a delegate to this year’s Republican National Convention. The 26-year-old is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, where he was an airborne cryptologic linguist. He was deployed overseas and honorably discharged in 2009. Jones said that the ability of constituents to reach him through social media is what makes him a good choice for the District 112 seat. “I plan to integrate 21st century technology to stay in touch with constituents,” he said. “I think it’s the 21st century, every legislator needs to be accessible on the web. I pledge to do an update for every single vote I cast on Facebook and Twitter, so people can

see why I’m voting the way I am, and if they have questions, I can respond in a personal way and in a way that everyone can see.” Nelson, 69, is a 32-year resident of Falmouth, and has three sons who graduated from town schools. Now retired, she said she spends the majority of her time focused on her work as a legislator, and endeavors to work across the aisle to reach solutions that work for everyone. “I’ve worked very hard for the last four years to gets thing done and to improve our education system, and I have worked very hard to find the common ground and find solutions which work for Maine,” Nelson said. “I really am not trying to promote any particular political agenda, I think it’s much better to try to work collaboratively with all of your colleagues. It’s incumbent on all legislators to listen carefully and find solutions that work

for people.”

Business in Maine Both candidates believe education is the key to keeping businesses in Maine. Nelson, who serves on the House Education Committee, said that when talking to business owners she has found that many young people are not properly trained to work in jobs that are available in Maine. “We need to get more kids into postsecondary education, appropriately train them for careers and life after school,” she said. “We need to give them a chance to have the right skills so that they can get jobs. I think that is the best way that you can support business. She also said that Maine businesses

could be better supported by funding for research and development, as well as by lower health-care and energy costs. Jones agreed that education is crucial, but said there is a need for less business regulation, too. “People recognize that kids get a continued next page

Parents: “Teach your children well”. ----- Graham Nash The laws regarding drinking and driving for folks under the age of twenty-one are different than those over twentyone. If you are under 21, you are subject to Maine’s “Zero Tolerance” law s as well as the state’s Operating Under The Influence (OUI) laws. If you are under 21 and operating or attempting to operate a motor vehicle with ANY amount of alcohol in your system (Maine law uses a breath standard, not blood), you are risking arrest and prosecution for Operating Without A License (operating in violation of your license restriction that prohibits driving with ANY amount of alcohol in your system). Operating Without A License is a crime. A court conviction carries penalties of up to 180 days in jail, a $1,000 fine and a one year loss of license. If you have a passenger under 21, there is an additional 180 day suspension and a minimum mandatory two-day jail sentence. Prior to your court date, you will receive an administrative notice of suspension imposing the same set of license suspensions without the jail time and fines. These penalties are in addition to what the court may do (there are some credits for time served on the suspension). In order to have your driving privileges restored, in either case, you will have to pay a rein statement fee and complete a driver rehab (substance abuse evaluation and treatment) program. Folks under 21 are also subject to the same penalties as those over 21 under Maine’s OUI laws if the state alleges and proves that you were operating or attempting to operate a motor vehicle with a 0.08 breath-alcohol concentration or while impaired by alcohol or drugs. If you are under 21, you may not possess alcohol. You may not transport alcohol. Violations of those laws are civil infractions. You may not provide a place for other folks under 21 to consume alcohol (that goes for everyone regardless of age). Providing a place for persons under 21 to consume alcohol, even if you did not provide the alcohol, is a crime. If you violate the law prohibiting providing a place for persons under 21 to consume alcohol, you are subject to up to 364 days in jail. If one of those folks under 21 subsequently suffers a serious injury or dies or causes serious injury or death to anyone else, you are looking at a felony and up to five years in prison. These laws apply to everyone regardless of age. These are things of which parents and their children alike need to be aware. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young were not singing to kids. They were singing to parents. But, when I first heard that song (at a wee young age of about 10), I heard their message. I still hear that message today as a parent. If you or your child has been charged with OUI or any other crime, give me a call for a free consultation at NICHOLS, WEBB & LORANGER 207-879-4000.

Falmouth House from previous page great education in Maine,” he said. “But it looks like we’re educating Boston’s workforce because they get a great education here, and then they have to leave the state looking for work.” Jones said that the Legislature needs to look at why young people are leaving the state and must create more opportunities for businesses to come into Maine.

“I want to make sure that regulations are easy to comply with and the tax burden is competitive,” he said. “Maine is pretty heavily taxed and when people are looking to invest money they are going to look at the costs, both through regulations and taxations. That’s how they are going to make a decision. I want to make sure that Maine becomes competitive nationally, to attract investors (and) to provide opportunity for the young folks who are currently headed down to Boston.”

October 11, 2012 Social welfare

Comment on this story at:

Nelson and Jones agree that, as a state, Maine has a responsibility to help people in need, but they differ on how to end a culture of dependency on state welfare systems. Jones said Maine spends too much on welfare, but he is not in favor of “pulling the rug out from under people on welfare.” He wants to look at how a transition can be made to make people less dependent. “The best safety net is a strong community, it’s not taking tax dollars from one group of people and giving it to another. I don’t think that’s a sustainable solution,” he said. “I think finding local voluntary solutions to take care of people who need the help is better than deferring to the state and writing a blank check to the Department of Health and Human Services.” He said the Legislature should examine where the systems are being abused and look at how to reform those systems. Nelson said that while the state spends a lot of money on its welfare systems, the money is justified because as a state we have a low per-capita income and the second oldest population in the country. “Do we spend too much? We spend a

lot because we have people in this state who are poor and we have people in this state who are elderly,” she said. “Children and the elderly are by far the largest receiver of funds and I believe we have an obligation to support them.” She also said that the state needs to find other ways to help people get back on their feet, rather than leaning on the welfare system. She also said that she feels that the departments running Maine’s welfare system have an obligation to follow and get rid of cases of abuse. “Every time you have someone who is abusing the system, that means somebody who legitimately needs the system is not getting those services,” she said.

Alternative energy

Jones and Nelson both said they support the development of alternative energy in Maine, specifically natural gas. But they disagree on how to fund programs. Jones said development should be funded by the marketplace, not by state subsidies. “If the technology is worthwhile to use, then people are going to bring it to market,” he said. He also said Maine’s existing natural gas pipeline should be better networked. Nelson said there is a place for some sort of state subsidy, but she would also like to see some of the work absorbed by

from previous page the state’s universities. “They are doing a lot of research at the University of Maine in wind and tidal, and I think it is absolutely appropriate to work collaboratively with them,” she said.

Question 1 Both candidates said they support legalization of same-sex marriage in Maine. “I believe that the law should apply equally to all citizens of the state of Maine,” Nelson said. “I voted in support of the equal marriage legislation in the 124th legislature and was disappointed when it was overturned. I believe that the government’s role is to issue licenses, and I do not believe you should withhold a marriage license from somebody because they are of the same sex.” Jones said the government should not arbitrarily decide to do something for

one population and not another, and that marriage licensing itself should be ended. “Whether Question 1 passes or fails, one of the two sides of the argument is going to feel like they are being oppressed,” he said. “We shouldn’t have to get permission from the state to love somebody. By ending marriage licensure, both sides can be happy because (couples) can negotiate the contract between themselves and it would be recognized like any other contract.”

Cumberland County District 3 commissioner election a rematch By Amber Cronin PORTLAND — Both candidates for Cumberland County Commissioner in District 3 are running on a platform of transparency, but they disagree on how much control to give to county government. And, the pair have met before. Incumbent Stephen Gorden, R-North Yarmouth, and independent Mark Grover of Gray faced each other for the District 3 seat in November 2011 after the county expanded the districts from three to five. Gorden won the election by nearly 1,300 votes, 6,899 to 5,617.

District 3 includes Freeport, North Yarmouth, Brunswick, Harpswell, Pownal, Gray and New Gloucester. Gorden, 70, lives with his wife Nancy in North Yarmouth. He is a retired executive with American Water in Voorhees, N.J. He said he is running his campaign based on the need for transparency and efficiency in county government. “There’s a lot of things in government that need to have more public exposure,” Gorden said. “There needs to be a better thought in this state of integrating government levels. Counties and communities should integrate services so they perform for the citizen and cost them less.”

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/137909

Grover, 57, a software designer for DeLorme in Yarmouth, lives in Gray, where he previously served three years on the Town Council. He said he wants to see bylaws created for county government as stipulated in the County Charter that was passed two years ago. “It sounds dull, but bylaws regulate the government and limit its power,” he said. Grover has drafted a proposed set of bylaws for the county and posted them on his website. His proposed rules include banning emergency meetings conducted via e-mail, requiring ethics rules for such things as disclosure of income sources, and “hundreds of other rules intended

to help regulate county government and increase public involvement,” he said.

County government

Both candidates said they would like to see county government become more “people friendly.” Grover said he hopes his proposed bylaws would increase public involvement in the county government. He said he believes that the public should be Gorden made more aware of meetings happening at the county level through weekly notifications, website enhancement and a county ombudsman. “The third proposal from my rules would be the establishment Grover of a county ombudsman to represent the public when they feel that they have not been well enough served by the county government, basically a customer service representative for the public,” he said. Gorden said that he thinks the county is already moving in a more communitycentered direction, but he thinks there is more to do. Sometimes it is difficult, he said, for him to get around to speak with citizens of the county and that creates misunderstanding in the citizenry. continued next page

October 11, 2012 from previous page “Right now, for example, you have a representative in the state Legislature who serves somewhere between 7,000 and 9,000 people, a state senator that represents 2,000 and here I am, county commissioner, and I represent 58,000,” Gorden said. “I have a hard time trying to get around to all the communities to get to know the citizenry and make myself available so that I can get input (from them).” He said that things like the regionalization of emergency dispatch better services the county’s communities and saves money. “It is very hard for a community to staff a 24/7/365 dispatch center,” he said. “At a regional cost you can do it better and more efficiently with quicker service. I think that’s one of the best things that we have done.”

Budget Grover said he supported the $41.5 million budget for the 2012-2013 fiscal year, even though it represented a $468,000 increase over last year’s budget. Gorden said that he finds the budget “a little bit concerning” and that there should be more citizen education with regard to bonding funds. Grover said that he always attends the budget meetings and that this year department heads and the county manager

provided responsible proposals. One major point of the budget that posed a problem for Grover is bonding money for renovations at the Cumberland County Civic Center. Initially, he did not support the measure because he felt that Portland and South Portland should take on more of the cost for the renovation because they would reap greater financial benefit. However, after there was overwhelming voter support for the project, he came around to the idea of borrowing the money. “The only real concern I have is about the Civic Center deficits, which I hope will improve over the years,” he said. “I want to see the Civic Center continue in a fiscally responsible manner.” Gorden also initially opposed the Civic Center bond, but changed his mind when voters supported it. He said that he now supports the project because with the county’s borrowing power, the money

was bonded at a much lower interest rate than if the two cities had financed it alone. He said that he feels that citizens need to be made aware of future capital improvement projects that are going to require bonding. “For example, we’re doing an upgrade

to the parking garage and that took some bonding and I believe there are other issues like that where we’re going to need to bond money to improve the capital outlook of the county’s facilities and that’s going to cost money,” Grover said.

College is more memorable the 2nd time around You know the saying, “time flies”? Well, the more mature I get (and I’m talking mature as measured by years on this planet, not as measured by my behavior), the more I do indeed believe that it’s going by not just at a quick trot, but at the equivalent of Mach 5. No Sugar

energy to lift a fork to my mouth. Or speak in a coherent manner.

This past weekend, I woke up in my daughter’s college apartment. And as I headed downstairs to the standard-issue college apartment bathroom, I thought, “Wait! I’m supposed to be the one accompanying my mom downstairs so she doesn’t frighten my roommates. I’m not supposed to be the mom! How did this happen?”

I recently reconnected with an old college friend. As soon as I saw his photo again and read some of his witty words, I was transported back to the 1980s. Bam. Poof! Just like in “Back to the Future.” Power up the flux capacitor.

These days, even when I pull only a half-an-all-nighter, I am not a happily functioning person the next day. And if I attempt it two nights in a row, I’m not someone you’d want to join for coffee.

How can that be? How can we have such splendid and vivid recall? How can it really seem like “just yesterday?” Apparently, one of the blessings of the “maturing” process is that we can remember what our college bedspread looked like, but often not what we ate for lunch three days ago.

Sandi Amorello

College is a wonderful, magical time. However, when we’re fortunate enough to be in the thick of it, we are (unfortunately) not always aware of this fact. When I was the one living with four female roommates, pulling all-nighters, subsisting on popcorn, Farina, rice cakes with peanut butter (and the occasional box of frozen spinach), I did not fully appreciate the experience. Nor did I appreciate that I was, in terms of growth and development, a creature with superhuman abilities. For instance, I didn’t appreciate that I could sleep for four hours for five consecutive nights and still have the

Personally, I don’t think any amount of cold-pressedNorwegian-fish-oil will change this situation to any great degree. And really, that’s OK with me. There is a reason our memories develop some holes, like Swiss cheese. There is a reason we don’t remember the names of our date’s kids. Our brains are filled to capacity. We’ve seen enough. We don’t want any more information. Please. Stop! (I once heard a comedian say this exact thing and thought it was hysterical, which is why I’m stealing it.)

A good restaurant. One with menus. And without pizza, chicken fingers, or hamburgers.

And I never would have imagined how much fun it would be to go to a grocery store.

Going grocery shopping with a college student is like seeing the world through a new pair of contact lenses. So much excitement. Who knew that a box of frozen waffles or a bottle of real maple syrup or a package of cherry tomatoes could bring so much happiness to a human being?

When you’ve been doing it for decades on end, things like food shopping can become dull, to say the least. When you’re in college, however, a trip to Stop & Shop with mom (and her credit card) is akin to winning an all-expense paid vacation to Paris or Hawaii. I can’t believe how much fun it is to be the fairy Godmother instead of Cinderella. Who knew one of the greatest joys of parenthood would involve making sure your college student has a plentiful supply of Annie’s Mac & Cheese? And toilet paper? My little chicken has flown the coop. For the second year. And it keeps getting better. I just hope I remember all of it.

But back to my college musings. There is something gratifying and very sweet about being a mother and visiting a daughter at college. Swooping in to rescue your young bird from her college nest, if only for a few hours and dinner at a restaurant.

Soccer tourney reflects well on Falmouth This past weekend, Falmouth Youth Soccer Association hosted the 18th annual Columbus Day Falmouth Fall Classic. This year over 150 teams and close to 2,000 boys and girls competed in over 250 games at the fields at Community Park and the high school campus, where there was competitive soccer from ages 8-14, good sportsmanship and fond memories for all participants. Just as importantly, the Falmouth Fall Classic is an excellent example of Falmouth’s strong sense of community and volunteerism. This year the FFC was led by Ron Lydick, who, building on the work of Louise Hester and Janet Dye last year, assembled a simply outstanding team to lead literally hundreds of Falmouth families who volunteered as field marshals, parking coordinators, and concessions, souvenirs and clean-up crews, not to mention the coaches and team managers. Additionally, many Falmouth student athletes served as referees and/or volunteered their time to help in the effort. The FFC would not be possible without them, nor would it be possible without the incredible cooperation and help provided by the town and its employees, from police, fire and EMS to public works, to community programs and schools. Finally, many local businesses

A recent news article exposed the insidious effect of out-of-state special-interest money in the state Senate District 11 race for the seat currently held by Sen. Dick Woodbury. These special interests are spending unlimited amounts of money to defeat Woodbury and pushing harsh ideological agendas that do not represent the wishes of Maine citizens. Woodbury is an independent senator, not beholden to the narrow agendas of the political parties. As a Clean Elections candidate, Woodbury owes nothing to those same special interests. Woodbury represents the best interests of Maine citizens, because he is solely focused on the best policies for all Maine citizens. Woodbury has Worked on Maine’s most difficult issues, from property tax relief to economic growth. Please join me in voting for Dick Woodbury. Benjamin P. Campo Jr. North Yarmouth

Tyll in state Senate District 11 We can elect a man with a record of service, leadership and achievement to Senate District 11: Chris Tyll. He’s a decorated Navy veteran with combat service. Chris Tyll, unlike many legislators, actually owns and operates a small business that has created 30 jobs. He understands what makes our economy tick. As a husband and father to three young children, Chris is also a family man with a commitment to education, strong communities, and a prosperous Maine. Chris is a man of proven ability and integrity who is running not for his own aggrandizement, but to serve us. He’s the model citizen legislator: sacrificing private interests to serve their fellow citizens without seeking personal gain and without asking any for public resources to hold office. We need a new face in the tired crowd in Augusta. Bryan Dench Falmouth

Re-elect Nelson in Falmouth We are writing in support of Mary Nelson’s reelection to the Maine House, representing District 112. As a young couple with two children, ages 2 and 5, we are proud to raise our family in Falmouth, a community having so much to offer our children as they grow and mature. We search for leaders who work to make Falmouth a community we can call a “great place to raise a family,” including top educational institutions, an economic climate friendly to small business, and protection of Maine’s natural resources. Mary Nelson has championed these goals with passion. Mary Nelson has been an active public servant in Falmouth for several decades. Mary Nelson is the candidate most qualified

and most committed to furthering the goals and values that we hold dear as we raise our young family. Scot and Michelle Draeger Falmouth

Falmouth bus is a ‘problem solved’ The bus was a deciding factor in our decision to move to OceanView in Falmouth. We realized we should not drive any more, but were otherwise self sufficient – a familiar story and accelerating trend. The Flyer is our link to daily needs. The schedule is convenient; the route provides access at key points on the way to Portland; the drivers are unfailingly accommodating. For us the bus is a “problem solved.” Our thanks to the Falmouth Town Council and the federal government, which pays about a third of the cost. Big picture: Across the nation, regional plans, like Falmouth development, include transportation systems. This is no time to lose the bus. Vote no on Falmouth Question 1.

Enjoy supper, support the Falmouth Food Pantry I moved to Maine from New Jersey and have lived in Falmouth for several years. One characteristic of this area that has really struck me is the community spirit exhibited by the people here – aiming for and receiving the best services, such

as schools, fire and police departments, etc. And our communities continue to aid those less fortunate. In this regard, folks here have always generously supported the Falmouth Food Pantry. Hopefully the community will again show up in large numbers on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 4:30-7 p.m. to enjoy the Harvest Community Supper at the Congregational Church, and in this way continue to support the pantry.

Leaving SAD 51 is bad for business

I am a Realtor in North Yarmouth. My husband and I moved to this community many years ago because we loved the town’s rural character and, more importantly, it boasted a fabulous school district. Today’s home buyers have not changed much since then. According to the 2010 National Association of Realtors "Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers," 25 percent of home buyers named school quality as their No. 1 deciding factor in their home purchase. In the last month, I have had several families quit searches for homes in North Yarmouth due to the uncertainty of where our children are going to attend school. This referendum to withdraw is already having negative impacts on our property values, our business opportunities and worst of all, our kids. We cannot afford to be irresponsible with the future of North Yarmouth. For our community, Vote no on Nov. 6 to withdraw from School Administrative District 51. Harper Lee Collins North Yarmouth

Sold on Tyll’s message, methodology

Keep the Falmouth Flyer running

The word cry-baby came to mind as I read Sen. Dick Woodbury doesn’t like the Clean Elections Law by which he chose to run. That option requires no work to fund a campaign; just take $20,000 of your taxes. And take it he did. Now Woodbury complains about the law, which he co-sponsored in 2007. Why? Because he ran into a tireless opponent, Chris Tyll. Chris accepted the daunting challenge of self-funding. The former Navy SEAL, business owner, husband and father of three never takes the easy route. He is going house-to-house, delivering his message, earning funding, not taking tax dollars. Tyll earns what he is getting. I heard Tyll’s message. He sold me with his commitment to work hard for great education – primary, vocational, secondary and beyond – to allow our sons and daughters to obtain attractive, gainful employment in Maine. My money is on Tyll. Bill Gardiner Falmouth

The METRO bus is vital for convenience, employment, appointments and, yes, pleasure in Falmouth. It took much hard work by dedicated people to re-establish this resource for us.

GOP literature reflects poorly on Tyll I have been dismayed by the misrepresentations made in many political ads this year, not only in the national elections, but also on the local level.

of Chris Tyll before, so I called him to ask what his role was. He said he had only “talked to some people.” Did he have a leadership role? “No.” When asked to explain how his efforts could be so overstated on the brochure, he said the brochure had not come from him, but from the Maine Republican Party. I think it reflects badly on Tyll (and also on the Republican Party) that neither he, nor they, have made any effort to publicly correct this misinformation. Christine D. McDuffie North Yarmouth

Bus is a vital service in Falmouth Without a car, it’s important for my family and me to live near the bus line. My children and I use the No. 7 METRO bus for all our appointments, errands, everything – it’s our main means of transportation. If the bus line is discontinued, I’m not sure what we will do. Ending the bus makes no sense and begs the question of fairness. For example, I don’t use the town moorings, but that doesn’t mean my taxes shouldn’t support the harbormaster. This Nov. 6, I urge voters in Falmouth to preserve the bus route by voting no on local Question 1. Heather Carrington Falmouth

Falmouth bus benefits many, not a few While writing this letter as I am riding back to my home in Falmouth on the 6:30 pm bus, I do not recognize any of the four other passengers. The bus is not exactly empty, nor do I have to stand as I have sometimes done at earlier times in the day. One passenger leaves on Washington Avenue. When I get off at the Audubon Society bus stop, the other passengers are still on the bus going somewhere in Falmouth. I have been fortunate today and for many days in the past to be able to have the bus available. In the winter the bus is running on Route 1, amazingly close to being on time. Having the bus in Falmouth is certainly a choice our town citizens have made, benefiting many in our community and not just a few. Please join with me in voting no to stopping this great service.

An independent running as a Maine Clean Elections candidate, he’s not beholden to party bosses in Augusta or to special interests. Dick is being outspent by a more than 2-1 margin in the District 11 campaign because he chose to run as a Clean Election candidate. Dick is a man with deep integrity, a passion for public service, and a proven track record creating public policy that serves the public interest. Please join me in saying no to outside money and partisan politics and vote for Dick Woodbury. Matthew Arrants Falmouth

Save Big Bird, and the Falmouth Flyer

Great news: We will solve all our national and local fiscal challenges by getting rid of Big Bird and the Falmouth Flyer. Public broadcasting and the bus provide valuable public services at a minuscule cost: one-third of 1 percent of the Falmouth budget for the bus. Both give an exceptionally high rate of return on investment. Getting rid of the bus is as ridiculous as getting rid of Big Bird. Save Big Bird. Save the bus.

Woodbury deserves a 2nd term in Senate

Bus ridership extends beyond Falmouth bus provides Falmouth necessary service

Please give thought to your vote this November in state Senate District 11. You have a choice between Chris Tyll and Dick Woodbury. Dick is an independent Clean Elections candidate, and as such is not beholding to any organization, PAC, or party as he formulates his decisions to vote on, and author, different pieces of legislation. As best I can see he practices evidence-based politics. He weighs the evidence on all sides of each issue, and then votes what he feels to be best for his district and our state. Dick works unencumbered, not beholden to a hidden agenda nor coerced by anyone but you, the voters in his district. Please join me and elect Dick Woodbury to a welldeserved second term as our state senator. You will not be disappointed. Dr. Steve Barr North Yarmouth

Although we live in Yarmouth, we frequently drive to Falmouth and take the bus to Portland. We park at the shopping center – so much easier for us than driving into town. My husband, like a growing number of seniors, has low vision and cannot drive. Therefore, the bus is vital to him and to many others who no longer drive. As out-of-towners, we cannot vote, but we are very much in favor of keeping the bus service. We hope that Falmouth residents will understand how important this service is to senior citizens and will vote in favor of keeping the Falmouth bus route. Vote no to save the bus. Public transportation is the way to go. Mary and Don Northrop Yarmouth

I'd like to add my voice to those already urging a no vote on Falmouth Question 1. Let's keep the bus. Ridership has been growing every year. Some residents need the bus to do their shopping. Many people, residents or not, depend on the bus to get to their jobs. Falmouth businesses benefit when shoppers and employees can get to their places of business. The bus provides a needed service. Yes, I have seen an empty bus from time to time. But so what? I have seen empty streets from time to time, but that doesn't mean we should stop maintaining the streets. I have seen empty spaces in parking lots from time, but that doesn't mean those spaces should be eliminated. Better an empty bus once in a while than a resident who can't get out to the store or an appointment, or a person who can't get to a job. John E.G. Bischof Falmouth

Send Nelson back to the Legislature My family and I appreciate having experienced representation in Augusta. Rep. Mary Nelson has been serving her constituents for more than three decades, in the Maine House, on the state Board of Property Tax Review, and on the Falmouth Town Council and School Board. Nelson’s focus on the three E’s – Education, Economy, Environment – is spot-on. As a parent of three children who attended public school in Falmouth, I know the importance of a quality public education and appreciate Nelson’s support of early childhood education programs and expansion of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math program in schools. Nelson also strikes the right balance of being pro-business while also being sensitive to environmental issues. Challenging times call for legislators who are knowledgeable, experienced and adept at reaching across the

aisle to find workable solutions to difficult problems. Please vote to send Mary Nelson back to Augusta on Nov. 6. Bill Welch Falmouth

Legislature needs Woodbury’s independence I am writing to express my strong support of Sen. Dick Woodbury for re-election to the Maine Senate. As a well-regarded economist (Harvard Ph.D.) and nonpartisan legislative leader, Dick has built a unique role and reputation in the Legislature. He is objective, credible, and deeply thoughtful about economic and fiscal policy. He is engaged with nearly all of the nonpartisan efforts to reinvent Maine’s economic future; elevating the role of the Maine Economic Growth Council in developing legislation for economic growth, advising GrowSmart Maine on “Charting Maine’s Future – Making Headway,” and

October 11, 2012

advising EnvisionMaine on their vision to make Maine a national leader in innovation businesses like mine. In short, Dick is among the most important independent voices in the state, providing balance to the more partisan voices that too often dominate Augusta politics. Dick is just the kind of leader we need to keep in office representing us. Kent A. Peterson Yarmouth

Moriarty in House District 108

As I think about who I will vote for on Nov. 6, my decisions will be based on who I think will help repair the divisive political landscape we see both in Washington and Augusta. Steve Moriarty, candidate for District 108 of the Maine House of Representatives, will bring a pragmatic, responsible, and common sense approach to dealing with the important issues are legislators will face in the next two years. I have worked with Steve both professionally and as a volunteer, and have observed him to be a very thoughtful decision maker who takes into account all views before taking decisive action. Steve’s leadership qualities, ability to listen and communicate, and his strong work ethic will not only serve his constituents well, but will also enable him to be a legislator who will bring about effective change. Harry Nelson North Yarmouth

Vote no to save the Falmouth bus

I’m sorry to see the national trend in political debate, which I’ll delicately call misleading, has trickled down to Falmouth. Among the signs sprouting ahead of Election Day, “Stop the Empty Bus” caught my eye. Empty? Really? Annual ridership is more than 78,900 and climbing every year. Whenever I get on, the bus is between a quarter and completely full. I like arriving in Portland on time, unstressed by parking hassles, and having caught up on my reading. It’s a mystery to me why we spend so much time and treasure debating a service that is enjoyed by significant numbers; provides a lifeline to those who cannot drive; should be integral to the town’s business development plan for attracting customers and employees, and costs the average household $1.69 a month. Public transport is a basic function for a town. Save the bus; vote no on Falmouth Question 1. Thomas Urquhart Falmouth

Deadline approaches for election letters

Our weekly deadline for letters to the editor is noon Monday, the week of publication. The final deadline for letters to the editor endorsing candidates or discussing issues in the Nov. 6 election is noon, Monday, Oct. 22, for publication in our print editions of Oct. 24-26.

Election letters must be no more than 150 words long, signed and include the writer's full name, address and a daytime telephone number. Letters should be emailed to editor@theforecaster.net.

Every once in awhile it occurs to me that I might like to do something entirely different with my life. I have wanted to be a writer since I was 13, but I had hoped to become a better writer than I am 50 years later. I somehow imagined I would be a major novelist by now, not just a local journalist. Don’t get me wrong. I am grateful that I get to make a living as a writer. I still enjoy staining the white radiance of a blank screen with my deathless prose, but sometimes I think I might like a do-over. Don’t you? There are no doubt The Universal more courageous folks than I who have, in fact, changed course entirely at 63, perhaps even later in life, but I somehow think it’s too late for me to become a physician. Even if I had the will, I don’t have the energy or the science prerequisites. Realistically, I could imagine studying for the ministry, turning Edgar Allen Beem a column a week into a sermon a week and my expressed concerned for the suffering of others into overt action, but I’m afraid I just don’t have a calling. I might also reasonably consider teaching, museum work, or public relations, but I’d need credentials, accreditations and competencies I now lack and am too lazy to acquire. And when I think about going into communications work I realize that, not only would I last about a day and half in the corporate world, I have no interest whatsoever in new technology and social media. Tweet all you want; I’m just hoping I don’t outlive print media. Fantastically, I can imagine becoming a shepherd in the Outer Hebrides, a Buddhist monk in the South of France, a wandering mendicant in the Himalayas or a beach bum in the Florida Keys, but I’m much more apt to wind up as a bag boy at Shaw’s. I’m way too practical (and married) to ever make a serious break from my established

Amused, confused by Beem’s view of wealth I'm both amused and confused by Edgar Allen Beem's recent column, "The rich vs. the rest of us." First, Mr. Beem seems to hold Mitt Romney to a "rich standard" that somehow seems to overlook Bill Clinton, net worth $80 million; Al Gore, net worth $100 million; John Kerry, net worth $193 million, and the list goes on and on – countless members of Congress and the husband of our congresswoman, all multi-millionaires. If Mr. Beem's contempt is across the board than I applaud him for being honest. If his contempt rains only on conservative rich folks, than that's very sad. My amusement comes about by knowing the rich folks Mr. Beem seems to despise have given me and hundreds of tradesmen work for many years. I've been in business for a long time and I have shown up on job sites with Obama/Biden/Kerry/Edwards/Bush/ Cheney/McCain/Palin lawn signs and bumper stickers, and every one of them, no matter what political stripe they were, paid well and were very gracious to work for. So I just don't see this them against us mindset. So yes, Mr. Beem. they create jobs, and no they all didn't inherit their wealth, and yes most of them are pretty generous. Paul Marseglia Dresden

routine. I’m so domesticated that I feel out of place anywhere I don’t recognize the brand of milk. When I get in the if-I-knew-then-what-I-knownow frame of mind, I start wishing I had stayed in school and earned a doctorate in philosophy, as I had once intended. By now I might be the Edward Pols Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Bowdoin, dispensing wit and wisdom as a venerable metaphysician. If I had it all to do over my kids tire of hearing, I would have pursued a life in academe. Hard to beat, ladies. Culture, sports, libraries, summers off. But so far I haven’t managed to persuade any of my daughters to go the academic route. What started me thinking about doing something entirely different was watching Mitt Romney destroy Barack Obama in the first presidential debate and then going to bed reading Bernd Heinrich’s wonderful new book "Life Everlasting: The Animal Way of Death." I met Heinrich years ago, visiting him at his little cabin in the western Maine mountains. At the time he was teaching at the University of Vermont and studying ravens. I still admire him and his writings enormously. I don’t have enough of a mathematical mind to have ever considered the hard sciences, but I think I might have been able to make it in the natural sciences if I had started back when my mind was still supple enough to embrace empirical data. I would very much like to have become a Bernd Heinrich or an Edmund O. Wilson, a scientist able to write and to extrapolate larger meanings from the lives of winged beings. Yes, that’s it. What I’d really like to do is become is a leading authority on the order odonata, tracking elegant dragonflies and damselflies in the wild, studying their brief, brilliant, beautiful lives while our national leaders are busy stomping America into the ground. But, alas, there is no time for a degree in entomology. I’m thinking maybe I’ll just get a dragonfly tattoo instead. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Kids can be expensive. Before a child turns 18, parents can expect their tab to be in the neighborhood of six figures, and that’s before college even begins.

Many times others will have new clothing – even pieces with tags still attached – because their own children outgrew the items before they could be worn.

While healthcare, food and schooling may account for a good portion of those expenses, clothing purchases over the years add up, too. Kids grow quite rapidly, meaning that clothing that fit last month may not fit the next. Parents looking to trim clothing costs can consider these suggestions.

• Consider consignment shops. Consignment shops sell gently worn items at a deep discount. Such shops prove a good resource for individuals facing tight budgets.

• Swap clothing with friends. Become friendly with parents of similarly aged children and accept hand-me-down clothes when offered. Solicit family members to see if they have items that are in good condition that can be put to use.

Close calls for local golf teams at Natanis By Michael Hoffer For the first time ever, all five Forecaster Country golf teams took part in the state championship matches Saturday at Natanis Golf Course in Yarmouth. Falmouth’s quest for a second straight Class A title (and a third overall when its 2010 crown from Class B is taken into account) and Greely’s search for its first in Class A were both dashed by Gorham. The Rams won a very

close match by posting a team score of 309. The Rangers were second with 314. The Yachtsmen placed fourth at 319 (Cheverus, 316, was third). Greely, 7-3 in the regular season and coming off a superb showing at the Southern Maine Activities Association qualifier with a team score of 317, last won a championship back in 1995 (when it competed in Class B) and came close this time

around thanks to great rounds from Kyle Megathlin (74), Kyle Bickford (76), Tucker Hawkinson (82) and Bailey Train (82). Tommy Buckholz shot a 90, but his score wasn’t taken into account. Ultimately, the Rangers couldn’t quite catch Gorham. “We had a strategy about playing big tournaments and what it takes to play well and we executed,” said Rangers coach Brian Bickford. “It’s a great feel-

ing when that happens. It doesn’t always happen in golf, but when you have players who believe they can play well, it’s a lot of fun. It was particularly satisfying to see our seniors play well. Kyle, Kyle and Tucker have been in our program since they were junior golfers and to see them play well warms my heart. We would have been ecstatic to win it all, but Gorham is an outstanding team. Finishing runner-up to

Gorham is not disappointing in the least. They earned the win and we are happy to be runnerup.” Greely will be right back in the hunt in 2013. “I look forward to Bailey, Tommy and a slew of underclassmen returning next year,” Bickford said. Falmouth, which went 8-2 in the regular season, won the continued page 27

Freeport, Greely triumph; Falmouth, Yarmouth fall By Michael Hoffer The football regular season hit the three-quarter pole last weekend and local teams are all over the map in regards to playoff positioning. The biggest success story continues to be the Greely Rangers, who improved to 5-1 last weekend with a 41-0 victory at Gray-New Gloucester. Greely continued to demonstrate it throws the ball as well as anybody as quarterback Drew Hodge hit Svenn Jacobson and Nick Maynard with long touchdown passes for a 14-0 lead after one quarter. After Jacobson scored on a long TD run, he caught another scoring pass from Hodge. A touchdown run from James Ferrar gave the Rangers a 35-0 lead at halftime and a Hodge TD run in the third period accounted for the final score. Greely sits fifth in the Western Class B Crabtree Points standings. The Rangers face a big home test Friday night when perennial powerhouse Mountain Valley pays a visit. The Falcons have struggled and are just 2-4, but remain as dangerous as always. Greely has never beaten Mountain Valley, falling, 35-7, last season, at Rumford. The Rangers close the regular season the following week when they host Falmouth in the “Battle of Route 9.” Speaking of the Yachtsmen, they fell to 1-5 and 10th in the standings after a 44-6 loss at Fryeburg Friday afternoon. Falmouth was down 22-0 after one period and didn’t score until the fourth quarter, when a long TD run from Austin Wheeler accounted for the final score. The Yachtsmen host top-ranked Westbrook (5-1) in a playoff rematch Friday night. Last year, Falmouth fell at the Blue Blazes in the regular season, 28-25, then lost to them at home in the Western B quarterfinals, 12-7. A

Falmouth upset could resurrect playoff hopes. In Western C, Freeport got back in the win column Saturday, handling host Telstar, 42-13. After a scoreless first period, the Rebels scored first on a long run, but James Purdy took over the in the second period, running for a pair of scores and hitting Dan Burke with a TD pass and a 21-7 halftime lead. A Burke TD run, a Purdy-to-Paul Nixon scoring pass and a TD run from David Scheadler gave the Falcons some breathing room. Telstar scored one final TD in the third period, but Freeport cruised to the win and evened its record at 3-3, snapping a three-game losing streak. The Falcons are in a five-team race for the No. 8 spot in the Crabtrees and sit in eighth heading into Saturday’s home tilt with 2-4 Winthrop. The teams didn’t play a year ago.

Thursday, the Clippers improved to 8-0-3 with a 2-1 win at Gray-New Gloucester in sloppy conditions. David Murphy was credited with the first goal when his throw wasn’t handled by the Patriots goalie and went into the net.

Yarmouth High School athletic director Susan Robbins said that the time has come for replacement and that further delay could lead to unsafe conditions. “(The field is) past its wear,” Robbins said. “It still meets safety requirements, but now it’s time to get something new. It can

get worse with all the use it gets. It would be the equivalent of having three fields with the amount of use it gets. We’ve used it so much that it’s literally worn down. We definitely got our wear. They only guarantee turf for eight years now. This is at 12. What we’re going to get is better technology than this. We’re putting a pad under it next time to keep it as level as possible.” While the Yarmouth football, field hockey, soccer and lacrosse squads are the most high-profile users of the field, Robbins stressed the whole community, from youngsters taking part in camps, to adults partaking in physical education classes to senior citizens using the track for walking, benefit from its existence and replacement. “It’s a community field and it’s served the community well,” Robbins said. “There are a lot of different users.” It’s not just Yarmouth High that has used the field over the years.

at the site. Robbins said that if the bond doesn’t pass, field availability for other schools will be a casualty. “If it doesn’t pass, we’d have to limit the time people are on it,” Robbins said. “It would strictly be a game field and frankly, we’d have to say no to other schools who wanted to use it. Over the years, we’ve been very generous with that, but we’d have to do a 180.” Originally, the hope was to add a new concessions building, restrooms, equipment storage, new lights and new bleachers as well, but to keep the project as affordable as possible in challenging economic times and with another bond to renovate the Public Works garage on the ballot, this bond focuses on the field with those other amenities taking a backseat. “The biggest selling point from my perspective is when you have a turf field, the maintenance costs are far less,” Robbins said. “If we replace this with a regular grass field, you’re talking sodding costs, irrigation.” In the end, it will come down to Yarmouth voters. Robbins and the rest of the athletic department are hopeful. “I think it looks pretty good,” Robbins said. “I think people support the school system.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ theforecaster.net.

Golf from page 25 SMAA’s Northern Division championship and shot a 329 at the qualifier, was paced Saturday by Joe Lesniak, who shot a 75. Also scoring were Brad Gilbert (79), Drew Proctor (82) and Matt Hutchinson (83). Alden Weller shot an 85, but his score didn’t count. “We’ve had a lot of success over the years, so at times, it seems as if anything less than a state championship is a failure,” said Yachtsmen coach Spike Herrick. “That’s definitely not the case. To win a title, you need four of your five golfers to have a very good score on that particular day. That didn’t happen for us this year, but I certainly consider this season to be a success. “We graduated four from last year’s championship team and we knew that we had a lot of work to do if we were going to replicate the successes of 2011. We worked very hard and to a large degree, were very successful. We won our division, beating out two very formidable teams, Cheverus and Scarborough. At the state tourney, we missed out by 10 strokes. Ten isn’t a large difference when you are talking about scores in the low 300 range. Our golfers got off to a very slow start. They got mentally down as they realized that they had put themselves in a catch-up position after just a few holes, but they dug in. They played with grit and determination. Had the tournament been based on the second nine, we would have won, but

www.theforecaster.net

golf is a game of 18 holes and the better teams (on that day) prevailed. “Our lone senior, Drew, led by example and by really digging in on his last nine holes. Joe, our number one golfer, continued his year long steady play. Russell played exceptional golf under heavy pressure. Matt and Alden didn’t have their’A’ games, but persevered in a big way. I’m so proud of this team. They kept their heads up and played with class, which can be hard to do when the chips are down. Our hats go off to Gorham. They played very well and have our congratulations.” Falmouth will look to return to the top next fall. “We look forward to next year, as we have five of the top six returning,” Herrick said. Yarmouth came to Natanis Saturday on the heels of a superb 10-1 regular season and a top score of 319 at the WMC qualifier and was bound and determined to win Class B for the first time. The Clippers weren’t able to provide the fairy tale ending, however, shooting a 332 to come in third behind repeat champion York (311) and Maranacook (324). Red DeSmith bowed out with a stellar 71, but he was the only player in the 70s. Cal Cooper finished with an 85 and both Nick Lainey and Monica Austin shot 88s. Spencer Olsen’s 95 wasn’t factored in. “Saturday was a tough day,” said Yarmouth coach Gregg Baker. “With the exception of Red Desmith shooting 71, the rest of the team all had one or two really bad holes and a couple of those were early

in the round. I was proud of the way they kept their composure even when things weren’t going well for them. They all kept trying to come back. Even Red hung tough a couple of times when his round started to deteriorate. He did a great job posting a low round. Kudos to York, they posted a great total, we needed to play very well to compete and it just wasn’t our best day. To have bested a team of York’s quality twice this year says a lot about how good we were. I’m extremely proud of this team. We did have a great season.” Freeport, 3-9 in the regular season, which shot a 356 at the WMC qualifier, took part in the state meet for just the second time and finished 10th after posting a score of 374. Nick Cartmell led the Falcons with an 89. Nick Tardiff and John Mervine both shot 93s and Spencer Drake also scored with a 99. Quinn Dowling also took part and shot a 106. In Class C, North Yarmouth Academy, which didn’t even field a varsity team in 2011, went 10-1 in the regular season, was the conference champion at the qualifier with a team score of 363 and finished eighth at the state meet with a score of 386 (St. Dom’s took the top spot with a 319). The Panthers featured Brad Potter (92), Mark Snyder (95), Ryan Walters (98) and Nick Demers (101) as scorers. Ben

Ambrose (108) also competed. “Since no one on the team, along with myself, had been to states, we had no idea what to expect,” said NYA first-year coach Charlie Hudson. “Personally, I felt that if the team played close to bogey golf as we had earlier in the week at WMC’s and in several matches during the season, we would finish in the middle of the pack. Ultimately, lack of experience and youth impacted us and the team had a tough day with two having solid rounds and the other three struggling. Although all were disappointed in their play, considering that we had no team last year, the fact that we finished with a 10-1 record in league play and qualified for states by finishing first among the conference Class C teams, the season was a very successful one.” The Panthers have several key players returning in 2013. “With all but one of this year’s team returning next year, the team’s experience at states will be valuable in terms of making them better prepared to be more competitive for possible future trips to states,” Hudson said. The golf fun isn’t quite done yet as individual Class A, B and C boys and a one-class girls’ champion will be crowned Saturday, back at Natanis.

Regular season from page 28 Yarmouth is 10th (the top 11 teams make the playoffs) with a 2-5-4 mark following ties last week at Freeport (1-1) and at home versus Gray-New Gloucester (0-0). Eavan O’Neill had the goal against the Falcons. The Clippers were home with Fryeburg Tuesday, welcome Greely Thursday and close at home versus York Saturday. In Western A, Greely was seventh at press time with a 6-3-1 mark after battling host Cape Elizabeth to a 0-0 tie last week. Rangers goalkeeper Caton Beaulieu made 11 saves. “We have a high line, so I always have to be up and ready to clear any through balls,” Beaulieu said. “We know Cape has quick girls up top, so I had to be ready. If I stay back, that’s when I get in trouble. It’s frustrating because everyone worked so hard. It would have been nice to have a’W.’ A

goal would have been great for everyone’s confidence.” “That’s a great result for us,” said Rangers coach Michael Kennedy. “A win would have been great. It was a hard fought game. Two teams with different styles. We’re OK with a tie.” Greely was home with Western C contender Waynflete Tuesday, goes to Yarmouth Thursday and Falmouth Saturday and closes Monday at Lake Region. “I’m not as worried about playoff seeds as I’ve been in the past,” Kennedy said. “Where we fall in the seeds doesn’t matter. I’d like to have a home game for these guys to build a little confidence. If we don’t, it’s OK, because defense wins championships. If we create chances like we’ve been doing, we’ll be OK.” In Western C, NYA was 2-9 and 13th (the top 11 teams make the playoffs) after home losses to Sacopee (1-0) and Waynflete (30) last week. The Panthers were at Traip Tuesday, go to Wells Saturday and close at home against Buckfield Monday.

The Clippers are still in the playoff hunt as well, but the two-time defending state champions have made life difficult for themselves after a 35-13 home loss to Lisbon dropped them to 1-5. Yarmouth struck first on a TD run from Caleb Uhl (seeing his first action of the season), but the Greyhounds tied the score later in the first period, went ahead to stay with a second quarter touchdown and added two more in the third for a commanding 28-7 lead. Lisbon added another TD in the fourth period before the Clippers got a late touchdown pass from Brady Neujahr to Rhys Eddy. Yarmouth (10th in Western C) has a tough test in its home finale Friday, as 5-1 Dirigo (ranked second) pays a visit. The teams didn’t meet a year ago. The Clippers, despite their record, can earn a playoff berth for the fourth straight year with a win.

Regular season from previous page the final week of the regular season began. Last Thursday, the Panthers blanked visiting Waynflete, 5-0, as Julianna Tardif had two goals and Maura Anderson, Marina Poole and Lillie Reder one apiece. NYA closed the regular season at Sacopee Wednesday, in a rematch of last year’s regional final. Freeport was fifth in Western C at 5-7-1 after a 2-1 overtime loss at Old Orchard Beach and a 1-0 setback at Yarmouth last week. Abigail Smith scored against the Seagulls. “We’re playing really hard and getting opportunities, but we’re just not getting the job done,” said Falcons coach Sara Dimick. “We have a lot of injuries and illnesses, but we’re playing well in spite of that.” The Falcons closed at home versus Traip Wednesday. “It would be nice to get a spot for homefield advantage,” Dimick said. “I told (the girls) it’s a matter of time until we get the extra heart and hustle back.” In Western B, it looks like two of three local teams are playoff-bound, but the big news revolves around the one which will likely fall short, Greely, which hasn’t missed the postseason since 1996 and was one of the region’s preseason favorites. Monday, the Rangers hosted rival/nemesis York, a team it had lost to nine straight times, in what was essentially a win-andget-in contest. Greely countered an early Wildcats goal with a tally from Jess Wilson, but York scored before halftime and fought

off several Rangers’ surges in the second half to drop the Rangers to 2-9-2 with a 2-1 decision. “This is symbolic of the season, unfortunately,” said Greely coach Kristina Prescott. “We had plenty of chances. It was a great game. Both teams were very skilled. We needed this game to make playoffs. Unless there’s some big upset, I don’t see us going on.” The Rangers were 12th in the Heals heading into Tuesday’s finale versus visiting Wells (which isn’t worth much in the way of points), but only the top 11 teams qualify for the postseason. Look for Greely to return with a vengeance in 2013. “We lose 14 seniors, but our JV has demolished every other team,” said Prescott. “Same with our first team. This won’t happen again. Having this many seniors and knowing them as well as I do, it’s tough to not see them succeed and make their goals.” Falmouth moved up to sixth at 7-4-2 after a 2-0 home win over Cape Elizabeth last Thursday. Mikey Richards and Jillian Rothweiler had the goals and the Yachtsmen’s defense held the Capers at bay. “This means everything,” said Falmouth’s Bri Hughes, who along with classmate Katie Cooleen and others helped clamp down defensively. “All we were thinking coming out for the second half was we want it. We had to keep our heads up and fight for it.” “We’re playing better,” said Yachtsmen coach Robin Haley. “You hope to peak at a certain time. (The girls) did a great job. Great energy all the way through. I thought we played well as a team tonight.”

Falmouth closed at home versus Wells Wednesday. The Yachtsmen will likely host a preliminary round playoff game Saturday. “I think we’re heading in the right direction,” Richards said. “We had that slump, but now we have momentum and heart and we want it. Hopefully we go far in the playoffs.” Yarmouth bounced back from a 4-0 loss at York by edging visiting Freeport, 1-0 (on Kallie Hutchinson’s rocket off a penalty corner 10 minutes in) and blanking visiting Poland, 3-0, to improve to 7-5-1 and eighth in Western B. Hutchinson, Lily Daggett and Emma Peterson had goals against the Knights, as the Clippers ensured a winning regular season record for the first time since 2000. “We’re doing a much better job and our confidence is growing,” said Yarmouth coach Mandy Lewis. “Our goal was to get at least a prelim spot. We’re headed in that direction. We met our goal of making the playoffs last year. Meeting our goal of hosting would be awesome for these girls. It’s been a fun year and I only have two seniors.” The Clippers closed at Cape Elizabeth Wednesday and could host a playoff game for the first time since 2001. “The top teams have a lot of wins, but I think anyone’s beatable,” Lewis said. The field hockey playoffs begin with the preliminary round Saturday, continue with the quarterfinals Tuesday and Wednesday of next week and the semifinals Oct. 20. Each of those rounds will be hosted by the higher ranked team. The regional finals are Oct. 23, at Scarborough High School. The

state championship games are Oct. 27, at the University of Maine-Orono.

Cross country

The cross country regular season came to a close last week at a couple of venues. Greely hosted Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth and Yarmouth. In the boys’ meet, the Yachtsmen were first, Clippers second and Rangers third. Individually, Greely’s Nathan Madeira had the fastest time (17 minutes, 9 seconds). Yarmouth was paced by Braden Becker (second, 17:28). Falmouth’s top finisher was Josh Simensky (fourth, 18:07). On the girls’ side, the Rangers came in first, with the Clippers second and the Yachtsmen third. Greely was paced by Kirstin Sandreuter (20:02) and Eva Bates (20:23) who went 1-2. Yarmouth’s fastest girl was Caitlin Teare (third, 21:08). Geneva Waite led Falmouth by placing fourth (21:27). NYA welcomed Freeport, Merriconeag and Sacopee Valley. In the boys’ meet, the Falcons were first, Merriconeag second and the Panthers finished third. Merriconeag’s Jack Pierce won the race in 16:23. Freeport was paced by Mark Donahue (18:01). Matt Malcolm led the way for NYA with a third-place showing (18:10). On the girls’ side, the teams finished in the same order, Falcons first, Merriconeag second, Panthers third. Individually, NYA’s Hannah Austin had the top time (20:33). Freeport’s Nina Davenport was runner-up (21:38). Samantha Pierce of Merriconeag placed third (21:57). continued page 42

‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ rides into the Portland sunset By Scott Andrews It’s a busy week on the arts and entertainment front, with a varied menu that spotlights several formats and styles. The most newsworthy event is Glen Campbell’s Goodbye Tour, which visits Portland on Oct. 16. The multi-platinum country singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease last year, and he says that the current tour will be his swan song. Another roots-oriented pop singer is Miss Tess, who will be appearing in Portland Oct. 13 with her three-man band, The Talkbacks. Portland Symphony Orchestra goes into Pops mode this weekend, with Saturday and Sunday performances of a program based on the bohemian lifestyle. The Portland Rossini Club, the city’s oldest musical organization, presents a recital by Portland-born mezzo-soprano Abigail Levis on Sunday. In a total change of pace, Montrealbased Cirque du Soleil’s “Saltimbanco,” plays through Sunday at the Cumberland County Civic Center.

Glen Campbell The “Rhinestone Cowboy” is riding into Portland. That’s the happy news. The sad news is that he’s riding into town for the last time. Glen Campbell, who has sold more than 45 million records in a career that spans five-plus decades, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease last year, but he decided to forge ahead with his final studio album – “Ghost on the Canvas” – and wrap up his public concerts with a Goodbye Tour that visits Portland on Oct. 16. Campbell started in the 1960s as a session musician in recording studios in Los Angeles. Since then he’s had his own television show and appeared in numerous movies. But Campbell is best known as the singer of hit tunes such as “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Wichita Lineman,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Galveston” and “Gentle on My Mind.” In addition to Grammy Awards for individual songs and albums, Campbell received the 2012 Grammy for Lifetime Achievement. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Portland Ovations presents Glen Campbell at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 16. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

calls The Talkbacks. On Oct. 13 Miss Tess is holding a CD release party at One Longfellow Square, the city’s premier venue for Americana and roots-oriented music. An advance copy of “Sweet Talk” is spinning on my CD player as I write this. I like its infectious swing beat, which infuses most of its 11 songs (10 original and one old country standard). Highlights include “Don’t Tell Mama,” a coyly suggestive love song, “People Come for the Gold,” a rocking dance number, and “Save Me St. Peter,” redolent of beer and lonely barrooms. Catch Miss Tess and The Talkbacks at One Longfellow Square (corner of Congress and State in Portland) at 8 p.m. Oct. 13. Call 761-1757.

Portland Symphony Orchestra The Portland Symphony Orchestra launches its 2012-2013 Pops season this weekend with two performances of a program that was created by maestro Robert Moody, who based it on three artistic depictions of the joys and tragedies of the bohemian lifestyle. Titled “La Vie Boheme,” Moody’s program includes excerpts from Giacomo Puccini’s “La Boheme,” an 1896 Italian opera about a likeable cadre of starving artists in Paris and their love lives. It is the fourth most-often produced opera in the standard repertory. A century later, Jonathan Larson’s Tony Award-winning musical “Rent” recast an almost identical story in terms of contemporary New York. Even more recently, the movie “Moulin Rouge” provided yet another vision, going back to Paris for the setting and using a score that was compiled from various popular artists. Moody has invited four singers. Soprano Jessica Cates and tenor Christian Reinert represent the classical operatic side of the equation, while Broadway stars Mia Gentile and Mike Eldred will focus on modern renditions of the story. Catch “La Vie Boheme” at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13 and 2:30 p.m. Oct. 14. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Cumberland, Falmouth, Yarmouth Girls – Are you physically ready for your Fall and Winter sports season?

Miss Tess “Americana” is a deliberately vague musical description that has become one of today’s most overused labels. But it’s certain that Americana embraces jazz, blues, country, honky-tonk, swing and early rock. And those are the principal influences exemplified by Miss Tess, a singer-songwriter who honed her craft in greater Boston’s thriving alt-country musical milieu. On Oct. 16 Miss Tess will release “Sweet Talk,” a new CD that exudes all these qualities, showcasing her clear soprano voice, her heartfelt writing style and her new three-man band, which she

Abigail Levis Providing scholarships for promising Maine artists is part of the mission of the Portland Rossini Club, a venerable institution that dates from the middle of the 19th century. So it’s always a treat when a Rossini Club scholarship recipient comes back to perform for the home crowd again. That’s the background for this Sunday’s recital by Abigail Levis, an upand-coming mezzo-soprano who first studied voice in Kennebunk, moved on to perform with Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society and now studies in New York at the Bard College Conservatory. Among her current teachers is famed singer Dawn Upshaw. In her young professional career, Levis has appeared with the American Symphony Orchestra and won numerous prizes, most recently the 2012 Joy of Singing competition. Her Portland program will range from classical to modern selections; she’ll be accompanied by pianist Jonathan Ware, a Juilliard School graduate. Portland Rossini Club presents Abigail Levis in recital at 3 p.m. Oct. 14 at St. Luke’s Cathedral, 143 State St. in Portland. Call the Rossini Club at 797-8313.

Cirque du Soleil There’s a “first” and a “last” happening at the Cumberland County Civic Center through this weekend. The first refers to Cirque du Soleil, the venerable Montrealbased performing arts organization that’s making its initial appearance in Portland. The last refers to the fact that the company’s “Saltimbanco” show, which has been performed in 45 countries for two decades, will be retired at the end of the current tour. Classic Cirque du Soleil at its best,

AidAn Schultz-Meyer

Portland-born mezzo-soprano Abigail Levis will perform a wide-ranging recital this Sunday under the aegis of the Portland Rossini Club.

“Saltimbanco” is a thrilling and kaleidoscopic celebration of artistry and agility. With a cast of 50 high-caliber artists hailing from 20 different countries, “Saltimbanco” features breathtaking acrobatics and unbelievable athleticism, supported by technical expertise and extravagant design. The show explores the urban experience in all its myriad forms: the people who live there, their idiosyncrasies and likenesses, families and groups, the hustle and bustle of the street and the towering heights of skyscrapers. Cirque du Soleil’s “Saltimbanco” will be performed eight times between Oct. 10-14 at the Cumberland County Civic Center. For a full schedule and ticket information, visit theciviccenter.com.

Library from page 1 panded, joining the original Merrill building in the front of the property to the new one in the back. This connection, which moved the entrance and the circulation desk to the new building, positioned the rooftops in a way that tends to produce falling ice and snow when it builds up in the winter, she said. The proposed covered entrance would extend from the parking lot to the doorway, blocking snow and ice from falling on unsuspecting library patrons. In addition to the fire and ice hazards, the bond would also help pay for better ADA access and new bathrooms, which are currently limited to the first floor. One of the most visible changes inside the library would be a glass-wall fire barrier built from floor to ceiling in the reading room to create safe fire exits from the third floor. The wall would separate two stairwells, creating at least one safe exit in the event of a fire. Trustee Gro Flatebo said she hopes voters will recognize the bond is for basic renovations, not for elaborate or superfluous work. “I think it’s really clear the building needs work,” she said. “I think it’s clear we’re not giving them a Cadillac project. What we need to fix are really some clear-cut code and safety issues.” Despite the code issues, voters will have to weigh the importance of the library in the wake of two other significant bonds on the ballot this November: a $2.88 million bond for remodeling of the public works garage and a $1.5 million bond for a new turf field at Yarmouth High School. Frequent library patron John Walling said although he is a proponent of the library, he’s not sure how he would vote next year and questioned if this is the right time to propose spending more money. “We’re building houses on rotten foundation,” he said. “It’s just hard to justify anything that doesn’t have to be

The library will still be here without it.” Although he is concerned about his taxes increasing if all the bonds pass, Walling said among deserving public services, “the library goes right up to the top.” “I just can’t imagine not having a library in town,” he said. Grimm, acknowledging the timing of the bond proposal may not be ideal, said some of the renovations could have been done previously, but it was more efficient to do them in one project. “We’re worried voters might be a little gun shy,” she said. “We’ve deliberately sat on other upgrades to do it all at once.” In addition to the bond, another $1 million will have to be raised privately for other renovations and refurbishing after the code work is done, Grimm said.

Although library administrators have known about the code issues for several years, they’ve been waiting for their third-floor tenant, the Yarmouth Historical Society, to find a new home before starting renovations. The Historical Society is now preparing to move to the old Water District building on East Elm Street, and hopes to be in by late November or early December, with a soft opening in January 2013, Executive Director Michael Chaney said. Grimm said the library hopes to use the third-floor space for more programming and educational events like poetry readings, art exhibits and author appearances. These types of activities are where the library has seen major growth over the last decade, Grimm said, along with new technology services, exam proctoring and passport issuing as some of the key services they provide. “In Yarmouth, there’s no rec center, no senior center, no teen center; really there’s no place to go,” Grimm said. “We are doing all of that. It’s really the social hub.” The first public meeting to discuss the renovations and the proposed bond is Thursday, Oct. 11, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the library, 215 Main St. The Portland-based architect, Nancy Barba, of Barba + Wheelock Architecture Preservation Design, will go over the proposed renovations and answer questions. Library administrators, town officials and the architects are unsure of what would happen if the code violations are not corrected. “My guess is that the use would probably continue,” Barba said, although not all of the violations could be “grandfathered” in. “Some areas would need to be addressed, regardless.” Library trustees will be addressing the Town Council about the bond in a workshop on Thursday night and in a formal public hearing Nov. 15. “We’ve waited a long time for this,” Grimm said. “If we continue to put this off, it’s not good for anyone.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@theforecaster.net. follow Will on Twitter: @W_c_Graff.

Bridge from page 1 The original bridge was rehabilitated in 1933 to accommodate three lanes of traffic after trolley service was suspended in the early 1930s. The existing bridge was completed in 1943, and underwent its last major rehabilitation in 1991. That work included a new concrete deck, the addition of 6-foot sidewalks and reducing the roadway from

Gather from page 1 nity table is in line with the name and the atmosphere.” Decor aside, Chappell said his primary goal is to bring regionally grown food to customers at moderate prices by partnering with an array of small New England distributors and growers – what he calls the “foodshed.” “Think of streams flowing in like a watershed,” he said. “There’s some scenarios where we are working with the growers directly, but predominately we’re working with small distributors bringing in regionally produced food.” With a goal to have two-thirds of Gather’s food sourced from New England, Chappell said he has to be flexible and 5 work closely with local partners in order

four lanes to two with the addition of a wide shoulder. According to the Maine Department of Transportation, in 2010 the bridge underwent a review and scored only a 34.8 out of 100 in a rating of sufficiency. The review found that there was significant deterioration of metal beams, the superstructure (beams and deck) and substructure (abutment and piers). A sufficiency rating of less than 40 requires replacement.

Discussions over the future of the bridge and what it should look like have continued since the report was released early in 2010. The new design will be 112 feet shorter than the current 1,400-foot bridge and will have two traffic lanes, a pedestrian lane on the western side, a multi-use path on the eastern side and bump-outs with space for fishing. Morris said it is important that drivers know the existing bridge will remain open

for the small producers to keep up with the pace of the wholesale restaurant environment. One of the challenges for small food operations, particularly meat providers and distributors, is restaurants typically only want one particular cut, leaving the rest of the animal behind. Ben Slayton, co-owner of Farmers’ Gate, a butcher and meat distributor in Wales, is beginning his first venture into the wholesale business with Gather, providing meat from a collection of about 15 pasture-based Maine farms. “We’ve stayed away from it until now and focused on direct sales,” Slayton said. “It sounds really good to have all that business that a restaurant can provide, but they end up taking parts they want and leaving the rest, and there’s no market for it.” Farmers’ Gate’s partnership with Gather

is unique, Slayton said, and only works because of the mutual understanding he has with the chef, Chad Conley, who has worked on small farms in the past. “Chad really gets it from the meat perspective,” Slayton said. “It’s hard to go local for meat when the national distributors are so much cheaper. Chad has worked with us and understands the business.” Slayton said they worked on different cuts for the steak and found ways to use other parts of the animal to allow them to keep up with the volume and try to keep prices down. Conley, who formally managed the Freeport farm that services the Miyake restaurants in Portland, has also worked with Slayton and understands the needs of both the restaurant and the small producers, Chappell said.

during construction of the new bridge. “The new bridge will be built on the east side of the old bridge,” she said. “There will be plenty of opportunity to watch it being built.” Construction is expected to be completed early in 2014, if everything goes according to plan, Morris said.

is often synonymous with expensive, Chappell is trying to make locally sourced food accessible at reasonable prices, he said. Along with the steak, which rings up at $22 for the whole meal, Gather also takes other cuts and grinds its own grass-fed beef for $12 hamburgers. The restaurant also serves beer from regional microbreweries and makes its own soda. For now, Gather is open for dinner from 5-9:30 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday, Chappell said. Brunch is on the horizon. “I could have said with this big space we could be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I felt like we needed to get dinner down first and do more if we can handle it,” he said. “We’re still getting our rhythm.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ theforecaster.net.

Regular season

from page 31 The Western Maine Conference meet is Friday, at St. Joseph’s College in Standish. The regional championships are Oct. 20, at Twin Brook Recreation in Cumberland. The state championships are Oct. 27, in Belfast. The New England championship meet is Nov. 10, back at Twin Brook.

Volleyball Greely’s defending Class A state champion volleyball team is striking fear into the hearts of the opposition by peaking at the end of the regular season. Last week, the Rangers extended their win streak to five matches with impressive 3-0 victories at last year’s state match foe Scarborough and reigning Class B champ Yarmouth. Against the Red Storm, Greely raced to a 20-6 lead in the first set and never looked back, prevailing, 25-14, 25-13, 25-17. “We’re playing together really, really well,” said Kris-

ten Atwood, who had nine kills. “Everyone’s talking and being positive and it’s really helped. At the beginning of the season, there was a little uncertainty, but now everyone knows where they’re supposed to be and it’s great.” “We’re starting to click,” said Rangers coach Kelvin Hasch. “When it gets close to the end, we’ll be there. It was experience and getting a few people to play as a team. I use eight players. It’s hard to get eight players to play as a team. Now, we’re jelling and playing together.” At Yarmouth, the Rangers romped in the first set, 25-5, thanks to the service of Lexi Foster, winning 18 straight points at one stretch. The Rangers held on for a 25-22 victory in the second set, then closed it out, 25-15. Greely (9-2 and second to Biddeford, the lone team it’s lost to this fall, in the Class A Heals) was at Cape Elizabeth Wednesday, visits Falmouth Friday and closes the regular season Monday at home versus Cheverus. “We’re peaking,” Atwood said. “I think we’ll do well. There’s going to be some competition out there. That makes it fun. We’d like another championship. That

would be nice.” “I think we’re starting to peak,” Hasch said. “We’ve still got room to improve. It’s a whole new season in the playoffs. The Heals don’t matter then. No one should be overlooking Greely.” Elsewhere in Class A, Falmouth began the week 9-4 and seventh after winning at Kennebunk 3-1 and dropping a five-set (25-21, 23-25, 28-26, 23-25, 10-15) decision to visiting Scarborough last week. The Yachtsmen finish the regular year Friday at home against Greely. Yarmouth fell to 9-4 and fourth with the loss to Greely. The Clippers finished the regular season Wednesday at NYA. They likely face at least one long road trip in the postseason. NYA was 0-8 and ninth in Class B prior to hosting Yarmouth. The Panthers close the regular season with matches at Lake Region, Narraguagus, Sumner, Jonesport-Beals and Machias. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@theforecaster.net.

College, the Apogee Summer Adventure Program, or area schools. Fogg takes it from there. “It’s so much fun,” he said recently. “I get to exercise in the woods, while working with volunteers from all backgrounds. I love working with the same kind of hand tools that were used in the 19th century; figuring out problems along the way is part of the fun. And I like knowing that other people will benefit from this work. It’s important to give back.” “Gary’s the man, a dream volunteer,” said Caroline Eliot, associate director of the trust. “He’s so enthusiastic, and he

makes everything so much fun. He’s able to engage with young people, and he’s a really good teacher. And he’s incredibly well organized, providing detailed reports about the work that’s been done on the trails.” Twitchell said she knew the trust was getting a winner in Fogg, because she’d worked with him on the Topsham Conservation Commission. “Gary has a passion for improving the quality of life of the community,” she said. “He’s a collaborator, always respectful of all viewpoints. He’s such a gift.”
