Falmouth may restrict where sex offenders live By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — A proposed town ordinance would prohibit people convicted of sex crimes against children under 14 from living near a school, park or athletic field.
Police Chief Edward Tolan proposed the ordinance to the Town Council. It would prevent sex offenders convicted of a Class A, B, or C crimes from establishing a residence within 750 feet of a public or private
school or any town-owned property frequented by children, including sports fields and public parks. “We don’t have anyone living within those restrictions now,” Tolan said. “But if someone

‘Emma’s Olympics’ By Alex Lear NORTH YARMOUTH — Emma Fitzpatrick has dedicated seven of her 10 years to Irish dancing, and her diligence has earned her a place at the 2012 World Irish Dancing Championships. Her trip next April to Belfast, Northern Ireland, will be her first outside the U.S. “I’ve been working towards this goal for a while, and it feels great to reach it,” she said last week. The North Yarmouth Memorial School fifth-grader is a daughter of Joe and Patti Fitzpatrick. She was inspired to get into Irish dancing by her two sisters – Shannon, 17, and Molly, 16; her brother, Joseph, is also a big supporter of the many dancing events his sisters have participated in around the country. “It’s been a huge commitment ... for the family, but it’s been a really wonderful experience,” Joe Fitzpatrick said. “It gives me the chance to go around the world ... and meet people from other places and become friends with them,” Emma said. By the age of 6, she had worked her way

By Emily Parkhurst AUGUSTA — Contrary to some projections, most schools in greater Portland will receive increased state funding next year if estimates released last week become official. The Maine Department of Education has released its preliminary general purpose aid numbers for the 2012-13 school year, utilizing a new funding formula that was expected to increase funding for rural schools and decrease funding for urban schools. Democrats in the state Legislature had initially estimated schools in greater Portland would see widespread losses in state aid. But if the preliminary numbers are any indication, only a few local
schools will take hits. This is largely due to an increase of $19 million in the amount of general purpose aid included in the state budget – up to $914 million, according to DOE spokesman David ConnertyMarin. While this is still not as much as the state spent on GPA in 2008, he said it partially makes up for the loss of federal stimulus funds, which ran out last year. Despite the increase, towns where property valuation were higher than the state’s overall 2 percent loss, could see their GPA drop. Cape Elizabeth is expected to See page 35

Changes proposed in rules on student restraint By Emily Parkhurst AUGUSTA — After nearly nine months of work, a group of special education professionals, school principals, disability rights advocates and parents has sent rule changes on the restraint and seclusion of school children to the Maine Department of Education.
The DOE will review the proposals and then send its version to the education commissioner and the state Legislature for approval. The stakeholder group has proposed that the word “therapeutic” be struck entirely from the rules, which now refer to “therapeutic restraint.” “You do a restraint when it’s
necessary. Being therapeutic is not its job,” said Disability Rights Center attorney Diane Smith Howard. The term “time-out” will also no longer be synonymous with “seclusion,” if the group’s recommendations are adopted. The

Yarmouth council raises possibility of sewer user fees By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — While most town councilors seem opposed to charging residents a sewer fee, the Town Council will bring the matter to a formal vote in November. About 2,500 households are connected to the public system and pay for the service through their property taxes. But an estimated 1,000 households not connected to the system also pay for it through their property taxes, even though they use septic or other private waste removal systems. Councilor Tim Sanders, a resident of Lafayette Street, brought the topic to the council at an Operations Committee meeting Monday night. He said as one of the nearly 1,000 homeowners not on the sewer line, he favors establishing a user fee. Unlike the use of the schools, the town dump, and emergency medical services, he said, the sewer connection is the only service
Yarmouth charges all residents for that not everyone can use. “Everyone of those people, all 1,000 of them, wish they were (on the sewer line), but they can’t (be),” he said. “I think people who benefit from the sewer should pay for it. It’s fairness.” While residents are charged for the use of the sewer lines, nonprofit organizations, schools, the Tourist Visitor Center on Route 1, churches and veteran associations are not charged, Town Manager Nat Tupper said. He also said that after an analysis was completed in the mid 1990s, it was determined not to extend the sewer lines to Little John and sections of Cousins Island. Instead, the town would help residents pay for a septic system pump-out every three years, and help replace, up to $6,000, failing septic systems. The council recently stopped funding the septic replacement account, and residents who need the service are being

placed on a waiting list until the funds are available. Tupper said if the council agrees to pursue sewer fees, it must determine how to assess and administer the fees, how to apply fees to households and businesses of varying sizes, and how the fees would be used: for sewer line maintenance or property tax relief. But a straw poll vote indicated councilors are not in favor of pursuing a sewer fee structure, although they do want to give the public an opportunity to discuss the matter. Councilor Leslie Hyde said she does not like the idea of sewer fees, but is concerned about the sewer infrastructure and the need to maintain and upgrade the system. “I worry about the elderly, people on fixed incomes, having nonprofits pay, and
then promoting business here,” she said. “There is a lot to consider.” Councilor Randall Bates said he, too, is against sewer fees, but sees the issue as every resident paying for a service that benefits the entire community. “The issue raises more questions than answers,” he said. “But based on what I’ve heard, this is worth exploring.” Councilor Erv Bickford, who noted the issue has come before the council in the 1980s and 1990s, said the discussion needs to take place in a public setting. “It’s time to have a formal vote in public and put it to bed,” he said. The council is expected to discuss the fees in a second Operations Committee meeting on Monday, Oct. 17, then schedule a public hearing in November.

Falmouth council may review property bids behind closed doors By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — The public may be left in the dark initially when it comes to the bids and negotiations for the former Plummer-Motz and Lunt school buildings. In its meeting Wednesday, the Town Council was expected to discuss whether to review bids for purchase or lease of the school properties in public or in executive session. Bids for the properties are due Nov. 29. Nearly all the councilors said they would prefer to wait to hear Wednesday’s discussion and the town attorney’s recommendation before deciding whether to seal the bids and negotiations from the public’s view. “I can argue both ways,” Council Chairwoman Teresa Pierce said. “Really, it comes down to my fiduciary responsibility to the town.” Pierce said she wants to make sure the public is involved in any decision about the future of the properties, but that she does not want to hinder negotiations between a
potential bidder and the town by revealing what other companies offer for the properties. “Eventually, it will all be public. But I wouldn’t want to lose my negotiating power (by opening the bids in public),” she said. Councilor Fred Chase agreed that limiting the town’s negotiating power is a bad idea. “We have no alternative but to look at any proposals in executive session,” Chase said, “and hopefully be able to have the town manager go back and negotiate with somebody.” He said after the council chooses a winning bid, the information should be made public. Councilor Tony Payne said that if it does not impair the council’s ability to get the best outcome from the bids, he has no problem discussing them in public. “Eventually, it should all be open,” he
said. “But I don’t want to give up anything when dealing with the taxpayer’s money.” Councilor Bonny Rodden agreed, but also said she wanted to see the discussion of process held in public on Wednesday. Because the town’s attorney would be present, the council could exercise its right to go into executive session for “consultations between a body or agency and its attorney concerning the legal rights and duties of the body or agency,” according to Maine’s Freedom of Access Act.
However, councils can only go into executive session in this instance when “premature general public knowledge would clearly place the (town) at a substantial disadvantage.” continued page 5 SNOW G IN PLOW

Gurdarshan Gill Gill, 62, of Palmer Point Road, is married and has three grown children. She and her husband have lived in Freeport eight years.

Gill has taught and Gill been a principal in the Schenectady, N.Y., school system and now is a program coordinator for the Greater Freeport Family Literacy Program. She said her campaign slogan, “We need to move beyond business as usual,” represents her desire to provide a world-class education for students in RSU 5. “I think Freeport can do a lot better,” she said. “I’d like Freeport schools to be stronger in math and science.” She said adding programs and improving the curriculum can be done without raising the tax rate, by using creativity and innovation. She said as a board member she would look for alternative funding sources, would encourage grant applications and learn from other communities. “The most important issue for me is knowing that money is an issue for everyone,” she said. “Let’s look at budgeting, look at hiring a full-time grant writer.

at the curriculum and at how teachers and administrators are hired.” She said she supports building a better community, and if residents want to approve a campus complex, that is for the voters to decide. “If it’s good for the community to have (a campus complex) and if we could afford it, it would be good for not just the students, but businesses and the community,” Gill said. “I’m sympathetic to the athletic director, but the economy just doesn’t support it and we have to respect the people.” She said she assumes consolidation has been a benefit financially to Freeport, Pownal and Durham, but said she would prefer if students from Durham and Pownal were able to take out books from the Freeport library for free. “There has to be a better arrangement to accommodate all the students,” she said. “It is not their fault, they are being made to come here. ... I always think there is a way to solve a problem.”

board, has been able to create conversations and help bring about unified decisions, even when there have been disagreements. “I’d like to take what we’ve put in place – the strategic plan, professional learning communities, leadership in the schools and revamping the financial system – and better communicate that, so the three separate towns really feel they have one school community,” Larkins said. “That’s my biggest goal, to make everyone feel much more comfortable that it is their school and they do have input into it.” As a member of the negotiations committee, Larkins said he would like to continue to work on reaching a consolidated teacher contract. “I am pleased we could get the interim contract complete so that teachers could get pay raises,” he said. “With the addition of three professional development days, that meant a bump up in all teachers salaries as well. The negotiations have really been language issues and trying to bring it up to a modern contract reflecting the three communities and the schools, while the whole educational environment is shifting state and nationwide.” While he said he felt as though the three districts had to consolidate “at gunpoint,” and there have been uncontrollable financial implications for Pownal and Durham, Larkins said consolidation is working well and sees the three communities fitting well into a consolidated district. He said the administration has continued to do a great job keeping the budget flat in light of rising fuel costs, salaries and professional development days. “It proves to a certain extent there is continued next page

merit to the increase in numbers to the school,” Larkins said. “We’ve been able to actually recognize savings by consolidating.” Adding more personnel, resources for the gifted and talented program, Advanced Placement courses and increasing the athletic budget will have an impact on the budget, Larkins said. But he said these additions are necessary to keep RSU 5 moving forward and in line with other schools. Larkins supports the campus complex and said money, timing and communication played a role in the vote against building a track and turf field at the high school. “My natural ability to facilitate matters will help continue the process of community building in the school system,” he said. “I’ve learned a lot in the past 2 1/2 years and want to continue that work.”
“The law says public proceedings should be conducted publicly,” Rodden said. “I think this is a process issue and should be discussed in public.” She said she would wait to decide whether the bids should be opened in public until after hearing from the attorney and her fellow councilors. “I think my decision may be determined on whether the bids can be opened publicly, but chosen by the council in executive session,” Rodden said. Councilor Chris Orestis said he is worried having the discussion in public would draw the attention of “one particular person very dedicated to disruption.” He would not identify that person. “When I saw this on the agenda, the first thing that popped into my head was what impact this disruptive force will have on the process,” Orestis said. He said that if the bids are discussed in public there would be “a constant bombthrower in the process.”
Beth Parker Parker, 50, of Spar Cove Road, owns the Pet Pantry with her husband, and has two children in the school system. She served on the Freeport School Committee before becoming a member of the consolidation transition committee and has reached the end of her first term on the RSU 5 board. She is a member of the negotiations committee and has been working on teacher contracts for the past 1 1/2 years. “One of the main reasons I want to stay on (the board) is for continuity,” Parker said. “There’s been Parker turnover on the board and turnover on (the negotiations) committee and getting people up to speed on a matter that is so important and confusing is difficult and timely.” Parker said new leadership, administrative changes and highly qualified teachers are examples of progress and positive results of consolidation. “I think consolidation is working,” she said. “We are heading in the right direction with everything.” As a resident and business owner, Parker said she is conscious of spending too much, but is also mindful of what is needed for the students. “Each new item or program has to have a benefit for the kids,” she said. “If we need it, then we should add it. But I own a business and a home in this town. I am conscious of what taxpayers owe, because I am one, too.” She said the campus complex is a good idea and is something Freeport desperately needs, but it is important to consider and weigh the importance of other needs, such as the high school infrastructure and improving the curriculum. She said the campus complex decision should be made by the voters, not the RSU 5 board. Parker said she will use her dedication and knowledge of the board to serve the community. “I bring history to the board, knowledge, and there is a lot of unfinished business to continue to work on,” she said. “We are doing a lot and making a lot of changes and laying a lot of good groundwork but there is still a lot that needs to be done and I am familiar with the process.” Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.

However, Orestis said that even if the initial bids are sealed, he would like to open the process to the public as soon as possible. “In an ideal world, where we didn’t have a dedicated force of disruption in the community, I would like to have as open a process as possible,” he said. Town Manager Nathan Poore said Wednesday’s discussion would outline the way the bids would be handled, and also the process going forward. He said he would recommend the council make the bids public after the negotiations take place, but before there is an award,
so councilors can take comment from the public. “That will give the public the opportunity to weigh in,” he said. Poore added that approximately 20 people showed up for a walk-through of the buildings for those interested in submitting bids, and that he thought there were at least a half-dozen potential bidders. Councilors Will Armitage and Faith Varney could not be reached for comments. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

North Yarmouth to vote on establishment of Charter Commission By Alex Lear NORTH YARMOUTH — Residents will vote Tuesday, Nov. 8, on a referendum question that asks whether the town should form a Charter Commission. The commission would evidently be the first to review the Town Charter since the document was established in 1982, Select-
man Rob Wood said last week. He said minor tweaks have been allowed at Town Meeting, “but the whole structure has not ... to our knowledge been changed since (the charter’s) inception.” In the years since, “we’ve doubled the size of the town,” Wood said. “We still have the administrative assistant-selectmen form
of government, which many people think works, but some people don’t. And it’s a structure which requires major decisions to be made once a year, which has tied our hands.” An alternative form of government would be the town manager-town council system, such as in neighboring Cumberland. That

format would allow the council to make immediate decisions, but would eliminate Town Meeting. Wood suggested that an option in between those types of systems could be a possibility, too. If voters approve the referendum question, the commission’s members will be elected next June. That panel will review the charter over a period of about 18 months. Any recommendations for change will eventually go to Town Meeting. “I think all of us like the fact that it’s got to come back to the town for passage,” Wood said.

17,600-square-foot building to senior housing, is the third phase of the Village Green Revitalization Master Plan. The Planning Board conducted a sketch plan review of that phase last month, and the project will undergo major site plan and subdivision reviews at the board’s Tuesday, Oct. 18, meeting. That meeting will be held at Town Hall at 7 p.m. The Planning Board granted major subdivision approval last month to the first phase, a 58-lot housing project in the center of town. Bateman will develop the nearly 41acre Doane property into a mix of singlefamily and duplex homes. The Public Works and school bus facilities would be moved in the second phase. Six single-family and 12 duplex homes would be built in their place, along with a nearly 43,000-square-foot mixed-use building that would house 20 residential rental units and 14,300 square feet of office or retail space.

Schools must re-examine priorities What is the difference between constructivist math and traditional math? Your article didn’t exactly explain why parents should be concerned, or not. However, I’m not sure which is the greater concern, the math or the process. Isn’t it the obligation of the Portland School Board, or any school board, to hold public meetings on major changes like curriculum? They went all out with the boosters consolidation issue. And isn’t it state law that the School Board should be the ultimate determinant of all things curricular – and assessments and teachers and process? Portland has a history of bad process. The City Council especially. But the School Department has had its share of controversy, too. And just like the council’s non-inclusive processes, this Chicago Math selection and the process used to get there may just drive more parents to leave Portland schools for greener pastures. Aside from talking with Maine educators, I interview authors from across the country on my web radio show “Topics In Education.” I have yet to find one person who thinks Chicago Math is good for a general population. Falmouth only makes their math curriculum work by supplementing it with extra work – traditionalist work. City, state or nation, school systems need to rearrange their priorities. Schools exist for the benefit of children first. Parents come next. And those two groups should be at the top of the decision chain for any substantive change in the educational core.

‘Reform’ mathematics is not the only answer In 1997, I started the Maine Mathematics Science & Engineering Talent Search program. In 2011, I was selected to a nationwide group to resolve the shortage of engineers in the U.S. In 2005, I received the University of Maine Educator Recognition Award for MMSETS. Over the years, we had over 4,000 students in the program, many of whom have continued on to Ivy League schools, and the best engineering and business schools. Wherever MMSETS students go, they graduate in the top 25 percent of their class. The key to our success is in the problem-solving method; the coherent development of mathematical ideas, from simple to challenging, complex problems. The same structure is inherent in the junior engineering concepts we teach in programming or mechanical structures. Our students learn when to add or subtract, relying on the meaning of the situation. Similarly, the students decide from the goal of a program in icon-based programming should be parallel or series, or smaller gear should follow a larger gear or reverse the combination. Our program is very pictorial and lends itself for foundation to algebra and improves spatial vision. We are teaching in-service teachers how to use the same methods in elementary and middle school mathematics. If
we want our students compete internationally, we could look at the curriculum of Singapore; the students from Singapore of grade 4 and 8 are leading in the Trends in International Science and Mathematics Study. Eva J. Szillery, MMSETS director Orono
Parents deserve a say in math curriculum Your article about the Chicago Math program and the concerns parents have has been played out numerous times across the country and here in Maine over the past few years. Our district recently did away with Investigations in Data and Space for K-5 and Connected Math for Middle School. Our School Board considered many factors including the recommendations of the National Math Advisory Panel. The study warned against spiraling curriculum and encouraged teaching “standard algorithms.” One big advantage of some of the new, more blended programs, is the online access. This allows students and parents to go online at home page by page in their textbook. The newly adopted Common Core Standards in math call for teaching “standard algorithms.” Anna Collins and other parents should be allowed to have a say in what is taught in their schools. College math professors know what kids need to be successful in their class; let’s get their opinion. Pat Murray Bradford
Re-elect Migliaccio in Freeport As I review the literature recently received for the election of town councilors in Freeport District 3, I am encouraged by the fact that we have an opportunity to re-elect a community leader like Joe Migliaccio. Joe’s experience through his many volunteer hours in the community and on local and state boards through his professional career have allowed him to understand the uniqueness of District 3. Joe has been very vocal on issues that really matter to Freeport residents as well as District 3. It is not always the easy way for Joe, but that is what I expect of my councilor. Joe Migliaccio has lived and worked in Freeport, he is hard working, respectful and experienced, which is exactly what we need on our Town Council. Thank you Joe, for what you are doing. I am proud to support you with my vote on Nov. 8. Michael C. Reis South Freeport

nobody has ever been proved to be sensitive to “radio frequency exposure.” There are people who claim to be sensitive, but claiming is one thing, proving it is another. If you put a person claiming to be sensitive in one room and in another room you transmit at random times, the person will not be able to tell you when the transmitter is on. End of debate. Once you understand that there is no such thing as radio transmission sensitivity and that there are no valid health risks, all the arguments against smart meters fade away. I also do not agree with Beem’s assertion that people who opt out of the program should not have to pay extra. Quite the contrary, I feel they should pay more. I think the PUC should require CMP to tally up the costs each year for all the meter readers, their vehicles, their benefits, etc. The total cost should then be divided by the opt-outs number and that cost should be added to their bills. I also suggest that the possible hundreds of thousands of dollars CMP wasted defending the smart meter program for the past year should also be passed along to the opt-outs. Harry White Scarborough
Falmouth Food Pantry relies on community Thank you for your compelling story about the Falmouth Food Pantry, which serves 268 families (a 60 percent increase in just the past year), at a time when corporate food donations are declining. The other part of the story is how Falmouth’s residents and many local businesses have “stepped up to the plate” to support the pantry’s work, through labor, food, and cash donations. None of the pantry’s volunteers, including those who work 40 hours a week, are paid. And each year, for the past three years, Falmouth’s six churches and the Jewish community have collaborated to put on a free Community Supper for Falmouth’s residents, in support of the community’s free-will giving to the pantry. Indeed, the pantry has come to rely on these donations to cover nearly all its annual budget. This year the Community Supper is on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Falmouth Congregational Church, UCC, on Falmouth Road. Neighbors sit down with neighbors to enjoy roast turkey, local squash, potatoes, and apple crisp and ice cream, made and served by dozens of residents of our faith community, with decorations and other help (and cash donations) from everyone – from Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, high school students, pantry clients, and Oceanview residents, to town councilors and employees, and local business owners. I am personally very proud to be part of a community of residents who extend their hands so generously to help their neighbors in need. Peggy McGehee Falmouth

Falmouth Marine Patrol deserves thanks Michael Doyle’s rant against the use of the Falmouth Marine Patrol boat is tiring. The boat and personnel attended the Harpswell and Portland lobster boat races under a mutual aid pact that has existed in Maine since the very beginning of time, known as public safety, AKA: help your neighbor. Examples of mutual aid agreements are: Portland Fire Department’s Ladder 4 Company responding to certain priority fire calls in the Pleasant Hill area, Portland’s MEDCU responding to Falmouth on medical calls when our ambulances are busy and vice versa, our Police Department backs up surrounding departments and vice versa, and our Marine unit provides back-up and mutual aid to the U.S. Coast Guard and the Portland harbormaster and vice versa. You can bet that at any large incident, surrounding communities would respond to Falmouth without thinking twice. A few years ago, a tour vessel ran aground near Basket Island at about 10 p.m. Portland’s harbormaster, the Coast

Cumberland County candidate opposes bond issue I intend to vote no on the Cumberland County Civic Center bond question on Nov. 8. As a former county Budget Committee member, I have read the studies and have been given the “backstage tour” at the center. Although I believe the proposal and plans are responsibly designed, I do not believe this is a good time to add debt on the taxpayers for non-essential items. Borrowing $33 million (plus up to $22 million in interest) over 25 years is a price tag that I do not believe most people are prepared for. I can imagine situations where I could support the improvements. There could be a more modest proposal, the recovery could improve where we could afford it, or the city of Portland might be willing to pay for a larger portion of the renovations. In any case, the citizens of the county will decide this issue. If I am privileged to be elected county commissioner for the new Third District, I will follow the instructions of the voters. Mark D. Grover, Gray
Gill a good choice for RSU 5 board I want to spotlight one candidate who is superbly qualified for the RSU 5 School Board: Gudi Gill, director of the Greater Freeport Family Literacy Program. Her career includes 26 years as a teacher, principal and literacy specialist in an upstate New York school system. She holds two master’s degrees and a doctorate in education. Gill wants the board to replace its “business-as-usual” approach with a drive for academic excellence. She wants RSU 5 schools to be ranked among the top 10 in the region. Her grant-writing experience has demonstrated that excellence can be achieved by means other than going the taxpayer route. One of her grant applications recently produced $25,000 in funding for the Freeport Family Literacy Program from the Barbara Bush Foundation. Education is more than Gill’s profession. It’s her passion. Our schools, our kids and our community can benefit from that. Gordon A. Glover, South Freeport
The apple doesn’t fall very far Recently, as I was taking one of my long and meandering beach walks, I found myself enshrouded in fog, and sooner than anticipated – darkness. As usual, I was barefoot (my favorite state of being, although not with the “and pregnant” part attached). As I headed back No Sugar in the direction of my car, toe-deep in the Atlantic, with neither an actual flashlight or newly downloaded iPhone “flashlight app” to assist in my navigation, I came upon what appeared in gray evening shadows to be a minefield of beach rocks, stretching on endlessly. And I said Sandi Amorello aloud to my naked feet, “Ouch. This is going to hurt. How did I get us into this predicament?” When I’d arrived at sunset, I’d circumvented the large expanses of rocks that littered the beach. But now here I was in the darkness, up against a sea of stone, with no apparent way out. But as I began to walk, I noticed that what once appeared to be a solid mass of rocks wasn’t; the spaces of soft sand in between were more abundant and frequent than they looked from a distance. And in the gray light of a non-existent moon, I realized that if I focused on each footstep, I would reach my destination. And what seemed at first to be an impossible task, wasn’t. And as I kept my attention on the present moment rather than on the thousands of cold, hard obstacles that lay between myself and my automobile, I realized the “obstacle” was an illusion. And it struck me that in life, we fall prey to the same thing, but on a larger scale. When we are dealt a tough hand, when we peer into the

No Sugar Added from previous page future, it often appears daunting, even impossible. We wonder how we’ll make it. We wonder how we’ll survive. And sometimes, we want to give up. Eleven days after my foggy and enlightening beach walk, I accomplished a huge goal: I penned the final words to my first book, “The Irreverent Widow.” All 12 tweaked chapters were sent off into the ether, to my editor, 3,000 miles away. My love, my tears, my laughter, my lessons. It was not merely the culmination of much hard work, but the end of a chapter of my life. My widowhood chapter. I’d set a goal for myself: to have this first book completed and off to my editor before my October birthday. And so, four days before my self-imposed deadline, I’d done it. This made me smile, and do a little (OK, big!) happy dance. It also made me weep. Because when you actually keep your promises to yourself – when you make your dreams a reality – it can be overwhelming. A celebration was in order, and shortly after hitting “send” on my MacBook and launching all 70,271 words into cyberspace, I was en route to meet with a friend. Walking back into my kitchen two hours later, I was greeted by a glum-looking Harold and Charles, who spewed forth the news that the Apple computer legend, Steve Jobs, had died. Now, it’s not as if we were really tight with Steve. He didn’t pop in for dinner when he was on the East Coast. But it somehow felt that way. Maybe it was the fact that, like Drew, he had died of pancreatic cancer. Maybe it was that every word I’d written since being widowed had been on a Mac. Maybe it’s because they were both too young. Too full of creativity. Too full of life to have left this earth. All I know is, tears filled my eyes. The realization that I’d finished my book on the same day that the man who was the genius behind the computer upon which I’d typed every single word had breathed his last breath filled me with a knowing. That we are all connected. Intertwined. And like my walk on that stony beach, our path toward our future isn’t as impossible as it may sometimes appear. And if we look for the sand in between the stones, and take one small step at a time, we can reach our destiny.

Public spirit on Scarborough Beach Scarborough Beach is my favorite place in all the world. I started going there 50 years ago when old Mrs. Jordan used to sit by the rickety bridge in her beach wagon collecting parking fees. Look for my ashes to wash up on the sands there one of these days. I do not take threats to it lightly. So you might assume I’d be opposed to the Black Point Beach Park the Sprague Corp. has proposed there. I am not. Quite to the contrary, I applaud the public-spiritedness of the Sprague Corp. in offerThe Universal ing to create more and better public access to the most beautiful beach in Maine. The Black Point Beach Park proposal has been met with predictable NIMBYism from self-interested neighbors, the condo dwellers of the Atlantic House complex and the old money cottagers of the Prouts Neck summer colony. But the unwashed public, Edgar Allen Beem you and me, should be thrilled and grateful that public access may continue to trump private privilege on Scarborough Beach. The Sprague Corp., 68 descendants of Phineas W. Sprague and their spouses, own 2,200 acres along the Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough shore and, to their everlasting credit, they are willing to share it. Crescent Beach State Park was created on Sprague land back in 1960. For years, Scarborough Beach State Park was just a 66-foot strip of state-owned land that gave access to beach actually owned by the Sprague family. Since 1993, the Sprague Corp. has managed the state park and, in 1999, it sold the park to the state. Anyone who, like myself, has a season pass to Scarborough Beach knows that the parking shortage and resultant traffic backup on Black Point Road has become an issue on hot summer days in recent years. The upper lot fills, the lower lot fills, the overflow lot across the street fills, and, when the 410 parking spots are full, cars cue up along the busy road to wait their turn. To alleviate this problem, the Sprague Corp. proposed a 370-car grass lot with snack bar and bathrooms on 62 acres just north of Scarborough Beach State Park. The town granted the special exemption
permit required and was promptly sued by the furious forces of the status quo. Opponents of the park would have us believe they are concerned about preserving habitat for piping plover and New England cottontails, but there are no rabbits on that parcel of land now and no plovers nested on Scarborough Beach last year. What opponents are really concerned about is preserving their privacy and privilege. I was once thrown out of Prouts Neck by an old battle-ax who was the self-appointed defender of this privacy and privilege, so I know whereof I speak. The Sprague Corp. could have proposed building a dozen homes or two dozen condos on its land, a far more lucrative way to go and one we can assume the Atlantic House and Prouts Neck gentry would have applauded. Instead, the Spragues, traitors to their class, proposed a public park. From where I sit (in a beach chair to the left of the beach path and to the right of the lifeguard tower) it looks as though everyone will win when Black Point Beach Park is approved, except perhaps the NIMBY neighbors. The public will get more and better access to a very special place. The town will see its Comprehensive Plan, which calls for more shoreland access, realized. The Sprague Corp. will get a revenue stream to help maintain their property holdings that, in turn, preserve open space. And the folks at Prouts Neck will see traffic congestion along Black Point Road relieved. The farmer who tills the Sprague land will gain a source of water that will open up more Sprague fields to cultivation. The piping plovers, should they return to nest, will benefit from greater management and the prohibition against dogs that will come with the park. And the New England cottontails will have three acres of habit restored, though a whole herd of them seem quite content, thank you very much, living on Sprague land just across the Spurwink River in Cape Elizabeth. Hats off to the Sprague family. In a day and age when the common good is regularly rejected and ridiculed by the self-satisfied, self-important, self-interested squires of the status quo, the Spragues (at least the branch of the family that inherited Phineas W.’s land) have remained civic-minded, public-spirited and willing to share the wealth.

Falmouth wins Class A golf crown
Yarmouth second in Class B
By Michael Hoffer The first championships of the 2011 fall sports season were handed out Monday at Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro and a familiar name took home some hardware. Again. A year after winning the Class B title, Falmouth moved up to Class A and proved to be the finest team in that class, shooting a 312 to easily take the title by 19 strokes over runner-up Cheverus. Deering (332) came in third. Matt Packard and Will Bucklin both shot a 74. Nick Franco (81) and Joe Lesniak (83) also scored, while Joe Ionta contributed an 89. “It was amazing,” said longtime Yachtsmen coach Spike Herrick. “It was almost the happiest I’ve ever seen kids after winning. The stars were aligned. When I think about all the close matches we
Falmouth captured the 2011 Class A state golf championship Monday in Vassalboro with a score of 312. The Yachtsmen won the title in their first year in Class A. They captured Class B in 2010.

had with all the strong schools in the regular season, I was expecting a dogfight. It was a wonderful, wonderful day. Bucklin and Packard both peaked at the right time. Packard has worked hard to
Football teams on track for playoffs
By Michael Hoffer With just two weeks remaining in the high school football season, all four teams from Forecaster country are in line for playoff berths. There’s still plenty of work to do, however. The Yarmouth Clippers, the defending Class C state champions, got their first test of the season Friday night at Boothbay. The Clippers had a fight to the finish, trailing at one point, 14-12, before surviving, 24-14. Prior to Friday, Yarmouth’s closest game was a 20-point win at Traip Sept. 17. The Clippers went ahead in the second quarter when quarterback Brady Neujahr scored on a 30yard run. Boothbay answered with a touchdown to go up, 7-6, but just before the half, after Caleb Uhl made an outstanding catch of a Neujahr pass, Nik Pelletier scored on a 1-yard run to make it 12-7 Yarmouth at the break. When the Seahawks returned an interception for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, the Clippers were on the ropes, but on the next play, Uhl (11 carries, 109 yards) broke free for a 52-yard TD run. Later, Uhl returned an interception for a TD and Yarmouth held on. “Boothbay’s a lot better than their record,” said Clippers coach

how good there were. They’ll be tough the rest of the way. It took us awhile to get into rhythm. The kids responded and came through. Caleb had a monster game for us. We struggled in the pass game, but ran well. We had too many penalties and a couple brutal penalties. This will get us refocused and rededicated.” The Clippers (6-0) are first in the latest Western C Crabtree Points standings. They host 0-6 first-year program Telstar Friday night in the home regular season finale. “Telstar’s a team you can’t take lightly,” Hartman said. “They’re scoring points against everyone. They have wonderful athletes. We’ll have to use our speed and experience. We get some (injured) players back this week.” Freeport suffered a tough road continued page 14
get to where is. He’s very steady. Joe Ionta was six-over after three holes, but he played excellent. Golf is his only varsity sport. We would have won if we had to use his score. We had so many strong
teams in our division this year. We were used to challenges and not afraid of them.” While winning a title the first year after a jump in class may come as a surprise to many, Herrick felt otherwise. “Over the years, Class B has been a strong a division as anyone,” he said. “With all the country clubs in places like Falmouth, Cape Elizabeth and York, kids are used to playing the sport and are encouraged at an early age.” While Bucklin, Franco and Packard will graduate, expect the Yachtsmen to make another title run in 2012. “There are a lot of good golfers in Falmouth,” Herrick said. “There are a bunch of eighth graders who are pretty good.” In Class B, Yarmouth (338) was runner-up to York (322). After finishing third each of the past two years, the Clippers moved up and completed a superb year. No individual results were
available at press time. Individuals The individual championships will be contested Saturday, also at Natanis. Local girls’ qualifiers include Greely’s Edith Aramando (who won the qualifier with a 79), Yarmouth’s Monica Austin (second, 83), Greely’s Sarah Hansen (88), Yarmouth’s Jordan Brown (fifth, 94), Yarmouth’s Grace King (ninth, 96) and Yarmouth’s Emily Lunt (14th, 104). Boys’ competitors include Bucklin and Packard from state champion Falmouth, Greely’s Kyle Megathlin and two players from North Yarmouth Academy, George Doolan and Weston Nolan. The Panthers didn’t field a varsity team this fall, but Doolan (who had the second best score, 74, out of 69 participants, and Nolan (88) both qualified as individuals.

Buckle up, playoffs right around the corner By Michael Hoffer (Editor’s note: For the complete Yarmouth-Cape Elizabeth boys’ soccer and FalmouthFryeburg and Falmouth-NYA field hockey game stories, please visit theforecaster.net) Even though we were treated to a delicious taste of summer in recent days, the fall sports season is coming to a close. Golf is in the process of determining its team and individual champs (please see story). Field hockey’s regular season expired at press time, while soccer, volleyball and cross country will soon follow suit. Here’s where things stand as we approach the middle of October:
John Jensenius / For The Forecaster
Greely’s Allie Day tries to fend off Cape Elizabeth’s Emma Inhorn during Friday’s meet. Day wound up seventh and Inhorn placed 11th. The Rangers were third as a team. Falmouth came in first.
All five local field hockey teams appeared playoff-bound at the start of the week. Falmouth is suddenly red-hot, thanks to its unrivaled ability to steal games late. Last week, the Yachtsmen eked out a 2-1 home win over Fryeburg, on junior Jillian Rothweiler’s goal with 53 seconds to play, and a 2-1 victory at defending Class C champion North Yarmouth Academy, thanks to a gametying goal from senior Megan Fortier with 24 seconds to go and Fortier’s winner in double overtime. Fortier also had the first goal against Fryeburg, but after sophomore goalie Hillary Nash
alty stroke, Rothweiler was in the hero’s role at the end. “Near the end of games, we get excited and fired up and that’s when we do our best,” Rothweiler said. “We were all looking forward to this game. Fryeburg’s a good team and we knew it was worth a lot of points.” Fortier stole the show against the Panthers, her former team, with her flair for the dramatic. “I don’t think it gets better than this,” Fortier said. “I talked about it with my team, that this was the game to win. After (Fryeburg), it was kind of like another big game. We were all
“It’s a tough thing to do, play against your old school and friends,” said Yachtsmen coach Robin Haley. “You want to play well and make a difference. She did. She finished it off and I’m happy for her.” Falmouth (8-4-1) finished the regular season at Cape Elizabeth Tuesday. The Yachtsmen were sixth in the Western B Heals entering that game and were hoping to move up. “We’re definitely peaking at the right time,” Fortier said. “We can still get better. We know what we have to do and we’re ready to go into playoffs.” Greely had its three-game win streak snapped Wednesday at nemesis York, with a 2-0 loss. Friday, the Rangers bounced back with a 2-0 home win over Cape Elizabeth (Eliza Porter and Freyja Victory had the goals) to improve to 9-4 (fifth in the Heals). Greely finished the regular season at Wells Tuesday. Yarmouth, seeking its first playoff trip since 2006, was 5-62 and ninth in the region (the top 10 qualify) entering Tuesday’s finale at Freeport. The Clippers battled visiting Lake Region to a scoreless tie last Wednesday, then fell at home to York Friday, 3-0. In Western C, it appears NYA will be the No. 2 seed behind Sacopee. The Panthers blanked visiting Poland (8-0) and host

loss Saturday, 7-0, at Traip. The Falcons gave up a third quarter touchdown and couldnâ€™t answer as they dropped to 4-2 with their second straight loss. â€œIt was a hard one to swallow,â€? said Falcons coach Rob Grover. â€œWe had a touchdown we should have scored, but the official said we were out of bounds. Those things happen and you have to overcome. We only had 97 rushing yards and just 15 yards passing. We sure stepped up on
defense and had three goal line stands. We still have to get over the hump against a top program like Lisbon, Traip or Yarmouth.â€? Freeport (seventh in the Crabtrees) visits 1-5 Boothbay Friday night in what has become a must-win game. The Falcons edged the visiting Seahawks, 26-24, a year ago. â€œBoothbayâ€™s been very competitive in all of their games,â€? Grover said. â€œWe have to come out like we did against Traip and Lisbon and score some points. If we donâ€™t beat them, we wonâ€™t make (the playoffs).â€?

Gray-New Gloucester from start to finish, 68-7. â€œThe first four times we touched the ball, we scored,â€? said Greely coach Dave Higgins. â€œNo matter what we did it worked. It was 28-0 after one quarter.â€? The Rangers improved to 5-1 and are fourth in the Western B Crabtrees. They face a stern test Friday when they go to defending Class B champion Mountain Valley (5-1), which is coming off its first loss of the year last weekend at Wells. A year ago, Greely fell at the Falcons, 13-0. The Rangers then close the regular season at Falmouth. â€œ(Mountain Valleyâ€™s) going to be (teed) off,â€? said Higgins. â€œThe biggest thing we
need to overcome is their huge mental advantage. Weâ€™re working hard to get over that. The kids are buying in. We played with them last year. The problem was it took two series and we were down 13-0. We canâ€™t freak out when we get to Rumford and see the smokestacks. I hope we play a good game. We want to be competitive. The next two weeks are big measuring sticks for us.â€? Falmouth improved to 5-1 with a 42-12 home win over Fryeburg. The Yachtsmen led 10-0 after one quarter, 22-0 at halftime and 35-0 after three periods. Quarterback Matt Kingry threw for two touchdowns and ran for another. Will Sipperly had two rushing TDs and another through the air (as time expired in the first half). Alex Derhagopian had a running score and Jack Cooleen caught a TD pass. Kingry wound up 10-of-18 for 146 yards. Ryan MacDonald rushed for 99 yards on a dozen carries. Sipperly gained 40 yards on 10 rushes. Joe Goodrich kicked a field goal. Defensively, Chris Leete had five tackles and four assists, Sipperly wound up with four tackles and two assists and Michael Ryan made three tackles and had two assists. The Yachtsmen are fifth in the Crabtrees and visit dangerous 2-4 Westbrook Friday. The teams have no history as the Blue Blazes are new to Class B this autumn.

played yet,” Quimby said. “This was the peak right here. I hope we can keep this intensity up and take it to the tournament.” Freeport sandwiched losses at Sacopee Valley (3-2) and at home to Waynflete (4-1) around a 3-2 victory at Old Orchard Beach last week. Korissa Lavers and Abigail Mahoney had the goals against the Hawks. In the win, Katie Turner scored twice and Jenny Breau delivered the winner with two seconds to go in double overtime. Sydney Ambrose scored and Kayla Thurlow had the assist in the loss to the Flyers. The Falcons took an 8-5
from page 13 Traip (2-0) before the agonizing 2-1 overtime home loss to Falmouth. Against the Knights, Katherine Millett had four goals and Kayla Rose two. Millett had both goals in the win over the Rangers and scored early in the second half against the Yachtsmen, which looked like it would hold up until Fortier tied the game late, then won it in the second overtime to drop the Panthers to 9-4. “Its very tough,” NYA first-year coach Tracy Quimby said. “I told them this is what (Falmouth) did against Fryeburg. They knew and were ready. I’m extremely proud of how the girls played. They played to their abilities today. Every single player. This is what we need to do all the time.” The Panthers closed at Waynflete Tuesday. They will get up to two home playoff games and if they get to the regional final, will play on turf at Thornton Academy. “I’m looking forward to playing teams like Lisbon and Telstar, teams we haven’t

Q: If I purchased cemetery plots and made funeral arrangements, what do I do if I move out of the area? A: This depends on the affiliations of the funeral home or cemetery where you originally made your arrangements – and where you plan to move. If you’ve purchased a site in an independent cemetery, moving may mean selling your plot, which can involve unexpected paperwork and fees. Our cemetery is part of the Dignity Memorial® network, the nation’s largest provider of quality funeral and cemetery services. With our National Transferability program, if you move more than 75 miles away from your original residence, any other cemetery in our network will honor your arrangements. A planning professional will help you adjust your plan and select new property. If you have paid for your cemetery arrangements in advance, you will be guaranteed the value-equivalent of your plan and chosen property. Planning your final resting place in advance is so important for your peace of mind and that of your family. We assure you that any plan you make with us will be honored and transferred to the Dignity Memorial location of your choice, worry-free.

“I thought we came out the first 10, 15 minutes, kept the ball on the carpet and moved it well,” Yarmouth coach Mike Hagerty said. “We had combinations. It paid off hiding Sam in the back. He made the run and was completely free. He’s such a good soccer player. Sam got the ball on frame. On a wet night, good things can happen.” Against the Panthers, David Murphy (from Wyatt Jackson) and Ryan Maguire (from Torres) scored. The Clippers (9-2-1) entered the week a narrow second to York in the Western B Heals. They return to action with a showdown at Falmouth Friday. They host York in the regular season finale Monday. “We won’t let up at all,” Torres said. “We have to keep pressing and keep moving. That’s what we’ve been doing ever since our 0-2 start.” Falmouth was third in the region after splitting games last week. The Yachtsmen downed visiting Gray-New Gloucester, 2-1, but lost at Greely, 1-0. Andy Murry had both goals against the Patriots. Falmouth improved to 8-2-1 Monday with a 1-0 win at Freeport on J.P. White’s goal in the 69th minute. After going to York Wednesday, the Yachtsmen host Yarmouth Friday and finish the regular year at home with Cape Elizabeth next Tuesday. Freeport fell to 5-5-1 and sixth in the region after Monday’s loss. The Falcons had several golden opportunities in the first half and hit the post in the second before Falmouth transitioned for the game winner. After hosting Fryeburg Wednesday, Freeport is home with Waynflete Friday and closes at home with Wells Monday. In Western A, Greely is coming on fast. The Rangers dominated host Lake Region, 9-0, last Thursday, then got a huge vote of confidence with a 1-0 home win over Falmouth. Against the Lakers, Aidan Black and Gavin Collins both scored twice. Mitchel Donovan’s first half goal stood up against the Yachtsmen and Elijah Leverett had a solid game between the pipes. Greely (6-5-1 and eighth in the Heals) hosted NYA Tuesday and closes at Cape Elizabeth Friday. In Western C, NYA was 5-5-2 and eighth in the Heals after splitting games last week. After pounding visiting Buckfield, 12-2, the Panthers lost at Yarmouth, 2-0. D.J. Nicholas and Ryan Rousseau both scored four goals against the Bucks. After playing at Greely Tuesday, NYA finishes at home versus Lake Region Tuesday.
On the girls’ side, Greely was a close second to Gorham in the Western Class A Heals at the start of the week after recent victories over host Fryeburg (8-0) and visiting Lake Region (5-3). Against the Raiders, Julia Mitiguy had two goals, while Molly Fitzpatrick, Shannon Fitzpatrick, Audrey Parolin, Sara Schad, Libby Thomas and Kristina Volta all struck once. Parolin had three goals against the Lakers, while Schad and Sammi Toorish each had one. The Rangers (11-1) played at NYA Tuesday and finish the regular season at home against Cape Elizabeth Friday in a game that will go a long way toward determining the top seed for the playoffs. In Western B, Falmouth began the

Playoffs from page 16 week second to unbeaten Morse in the Heals after home wins last week over Freeport (6-1) and Gray-New Gloucester (2-0). Caitlin Bucksbaum scored twice, while Maggie Bohrmann, Cassie Darrow, Angela Mallis and McKenzie Myers all had one goal against the Falcons. Bucksbaum and Darrow had the goals against the Patriots. The Yachtsmen (8-2-1) had a showdown at rival York Tuesday (a rematch of last year’s regional final), welcome Yarmouth Friday and close at Cape Elizabeth Tuesday of next week. Yarmouth has climbed to sixth in the region with a 5-7 record after blanking visiting Poland (2-0) and NYA (3-0) last week before falling at Wells Monday, 2-0. Against the Knights, Ricki Pierce scored both goals. Claudia Lockwood, Mo McNaboe and Emma Torres all struck against the Panthers. The Clippers go to Falmouth Friday and York Monday of next week. Freeport was 4-7 and was clinging to the 11th and final playoff spot in Western B when the week began. The Falcons dropped a 6-1 decision last week at Falmouth. Jocelyn Davee scored for Freeport. After going to Wells Tuesday, Freeport welcomes NYA Thursday and closes Monday at Old Orchard Beach. The Falcons are seeking their first playoff berth since 2005. In Western C, NYA began the week 2-9 and 12th, which is one spot short of a postseason berth. The Panthers earned
their second win of the year last Tuesday, 3-1, over visiting Buckfield (Chloe Leishman scored twice, Ally Morrison once). They then lost at Yarmouth, 3-0, despite a stellar effort in goal from Scout Fischman. NYA hosted Greely Tuesday, visits Freeport Thursday and finishes at home with Lake Region Tuesday of next week.
Volleyball Greely’s volleyball team defeated Mt. Desert Island in a pivotal battle of unbeatens Monday afternoon to improve to 12-0 and essentially clinch the top spot in the Class A Heals. The Rangers won in three games (25-11, 25-13, 25-19). Greely was coming off a 3-0 home win over defending state champion Biddeford last week (25-17, 25-11, 25-19). The Rangers hosted Gorham Tuesday and finish the regular season at Falmouth Friday. The Yachtsmen, state finalists each of the past two years, improved to 8-4 with a 3-0 win at Cony Friday. Falmouth (fourth in Class A) hosted Lake Region Tuesday and closes at home with Greely Friday. In Class B, Yarmouth began the week 9-3 and third behind Bucksport and Calais in the Heals. The Clippers beat Cony in three games (25-15, 25-19, 25-8) last Tuesday for their seventh straight match victory. Gina Robertson had 10 straight service points to break open the first game. She finished with six aces and 16 service points. Morgan Cahill had eight kills and 11 service points. Grace Mallett added 12 assists and 12 service points. Sophia Siddall was superb defensively with five digs. Yarmouth hosted Scarborough in a pivotal match Tuesday and closes at home with NYA Friday.

Retail or Resale: Can you tell the difference? Shoppers with an eye on Monolo Blahnik shoes or a Louis Vuitton handbag may want to turn to consignment stores to realize good deals on designer duds. Consignment stores are surging in popularity all across the country. Many look the same as mainstream retailers and are taking a chunk of their business profits, too. Consignment stores no longer carry the stigma they once did. Instead of grandma prints and last, last, last seasons’ styles, fashion-forward shops now offer a selection of gently used brand-name and very often designer merchandise to a discerning clientele of shoppers. A shopper may even be able to find new items straight from a manufacturer’s warehouse. Consignment shop innovators, such as DoubleTake (edoubletake.com), a growing chain of consignment stores on the East Coast, regularly receive merchandise directly from designers, the wardrobe departments of television shows, and from socialites and fashionistas across the country. Says owner/operator Marci Kessler, who has been in the consignment business for more than 20 years, “I never anticipated such an overwhelming response. From day one we’ve had a steady continuous stream of beautiful designer merchandise that comes from people in every imaginable situation, and because we have such a high turnover rate through fast sales in our stores, we’ve built up a base of over 10,000 regular consignors.” What is the draw to consignment? For shoppers, it’s the ability to get very good quality merchandise at a discounted price.
Village Consignment ’s Shop! UpWscoamleeRnesale Located at 805 U.S. 1, Yarmouth (Next to Pat’s Pizza) •
Typically, consigned items will sell for 25 to 50 percent of the original retail value, although each store varies in their policy. Some stores will continue to mark down items the longer they’re in the shop. For sellers, consignment stores offer the opportunity to have their merchandise on display and receive a portion of the profits. Most stores will sell consigned items and split the profits at 40 to 60 percent. This can make it easy for individuals with closets full of items that are not in use to make some extra money. “Many women in the fashion industry or socialites need to turn over their wardrobes frequently,” offers Kessler. “These people would rather make some money than have items sit in their closets.” Consignment stores are big business. According to the Association of Resale Professionals, there are currently more than 30,000 resale, consignment and thrift shops

in the United States. The industry has also experienced a growth --approximately 7 percent a year for the past two years. Plus, with real estate prices at all-time lows, many enterprising people are taking advantage of low rents and opening up consignment stores all across the country. Don’t think consignment stores are glorified yard sales, either. Most stores will not accept items that are out-of-date or too much out of season. Some shops won’t carry merchandise that is older than two years old. In this economy, many people are looking to make or save money. Consignment stores can offer the best of both worlds.

Out & About
Top picks: Laura Kargul and ‘Sleepy Hollow’ By Scott Andrews The fall season’s artistic offerings continue in full force this week with a variety of happenings. My personal pick of this weekend’s events is the annual October appearance of classical pianist Laura Kargul, a longtime professor at the University of Southern Maine School of Music. She’s appearing this Friday in Gorham in the Spotlight Series, which features the school’s faculty. Portland Ballet will reprise one of its original terpsichorean creations on Saturday with two performances of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” at a new venue, the Westbrook Performing Arts Center. Denny Breau, a 10-time honoree of the Maine Country Music Association and the youngest inductee of the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame, will perform Saturday in an archetypal country venue: the Saco River Grange Hall in Bar Mills.
Laura Kargul Among my personal favorite events of the fall season is the almost-annual concert given by pianist Laura Kargul in the Spotlight Series of the University of Southern Maine School of Music. She’s the top piano prof at the school, plus she’s passionate about performing the Romantic repertoire, a sub-genre of classical music that flourished in the 1800s. Her personal favorite is Franz Liszt, Hungarian-born virtuoso performer and composer who was a musical rock star of his age in the capitals of 19th-century Europe. He’s also the archetype of the 19th-century hero: Most of his voluminous output was written for his own performances and he is credited with making the solo recital an important feature of the cultural landscape. Technically speaking, his style is characterized by bold harmonic experimentation and the use of recurring musical motives that thematically pervade his compositions. On Oct. 22, the musical world will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Liszt’s birth with concerts and other performances. Here in southern Maine, the big celebration will be Kargul’s all-Liszt concert this Friday. Kargul will perform solo piano selections including the stunning, poetic masterpiece “Blessing of God in Solitude” and the virtuosic tour de force, the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 12. Kargul will also present several of Liszt’s piano transcriptions of works by other composers including the monumental “Liebestod” of Richard Wagner, Robert Schumann’s “Widmung” and the dazzling opera paraphrase of “Lucia di Lammermoor” by Gaetano Donizetti.
A romantic triangle plus a headless horseman are among the salient features of Portland Ballet’s production of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” which will be performed twice on Saturday at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center.
A resident of Freeport, Kargul has appeared as a soloist, chamber musician, adjudicator, lecturer and master class technician throughout Europe and the U.S. plus Canada and the West Indies. Her solo performances have been greeted with critical acclaim in venues such as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Diligentia Theater in Den Haag, the Schleswig-Holstein and Nordhessen music festivals in Germany, Evian Music Festival in France and the Lesvos Arts Festival in Greece. Known especially for her performances of Liszt, she is one of very few artists ever invited to perform a full recital on the composer’s own Bechstein piano at the Liszt-Haus in Weimar, Germany. She has also released a solo CD of his transcriptions, “Liszt and Ravel: Transcriptions for Piano.” Kargul has been the director of the keyboard program at USM since 1989. Audience members will be enlightened and entertained by her comments from the stage. Catch this wonderful concert at 8 p.m. Oct. 14 at Corthell Hall on the University of Southern Maine’s Gorham campus. Call the music box office at 780-5555.
‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’ Halloween is quickly approaching, so a headless horseman seems like a natural way to anticipate the occasion.
But a headless ballet dancer? Well, perhaps you should check out “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” an original terpsichorean creation of Portland Ballet which will be performed twice on Saturday in Westbrook. “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” premiered in the 2010 season and features original choreography by Nell Shipman and original music by Kirt Mosier, written on special commission. A live orchestra, conducted by Robert Lehmann, will accompany both performances of this classic ballet. The ballet is based on the famous tale of the same name, published by American author Washington Irving in 1820. The story takes place in a town in New York called Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod Crane is a very nervous and superstitious schoolteacher. He is in love with the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel. But so is a romantic rival: Brom Bones. Katrina apparently loves Ichabod, but she also seems attracted to Brom Bones. It’s a classic romantic triangle, and something has to give. What happens is totally surprising. One evening after a party at the Van Tassels’ home, Ichabod is pursued by the Headless Horseman, the ghost of a soldier who had his head shot off in a long-ago battle and now haunts the area. Ichabod disappears and Katrina marries Brom Bones. Was Brom Bones really the Headless Horseman who chased off his rival? Or did Ichabod’s overly vivid imagination simply run amok? You decide. The part of Ichabod Crane will be reprised by dancer Derek Clifford. The part of Brom Bones and the Headless Horseman will be danced by Joseph Jefferies. Jen Jones will portray Katrina Van Tassel. There’s a supporting cast of about two dozen. Portland Ballet presents “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” at the new Westbrook Performing Arts Center (at the middle school at 471 Stroudwater St.) twice on Oct. 15, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Call PortTix at 842-0800.
The Saco River Grange Hall, former center of agriculture and old-time rural culture in Bar Mills, is one of Maine’s homiest arts centers. So it’s doubly appropriate that Saturday’s featured performer is one of the Pine Tree State’s favorite musicians. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Denny Breau has been honored by the Maine Country Music Association 10 times: Songwriter of the Year, Entertainer of the Year and eight times as Instrumentalist of the Year. He’s also the youngest inductee of the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame. Breau’s rhythmically flawless and dazzlingly clear style allows him to do amazing things with a six-string guitar. At first he’ll draw an audience into his musical world with a finely arranged melody, and then slides effortlessly into scorching finger work that sets ears aflame. Lighting-fast guitar lines are balanced with guitar work with a quiet intimacy that wraps tenderly around carefully crafted songs. Breau mixes genres with ease: folk, Delta blues, country and jazz. Plus he’s an engaging storyteller. For Saturday’s concert he’ll be accompanied by a flutist and bass guitarist. Catch Denny Breau at the Saco River Grange Hall (29 Salmon Falls Road in the Bar Mills village of Buxton) at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 15. Call 929-6472.

Falmouth from page 1 overboard, saying sex offenders couldn’t live within five miles of a school,” he said. “So that way, they couldn’t live in the town at all.” A state law, passed in 2009, allows towns to restrict where sex offenders can live, but only within certain criteria. Towns can only limit residency, and cannot impose fees or require registrations. The maximum distance allowed under the law is 750 feet and towns cannot force those who already live within that distance to leave the area when an ordinance is passed. The town lists 28 public parks on its website, although it is unclear which of these parks would be included under the proposed ordinance’s definition of “property where children are the primary users, including, without limitation, playgrounds and athletic fields.” “It’s not just open space, because adults use that as well,” Tolan said. He said police would focus on people living near the school campus, day-care centers and the town’s sports fields. Anyone who failed to register as a sex offender with the town, and moved into a home within the restricted areas, would be charged a $500 per day fine. City-data.com lists only two sex of-

fenders living in Falmouth, one on Gray Road, the other on Ledgewood Drive. The Maine Sex Offender Registry reveals a third offender in Falmouth, but the crime for which he was convicted – possession of child pornography – would not have qualified him for restrictions under the proposed ordinance. The towns of Buxton and Sebago both have ordinances restricting residency for sex offenders, but the cities of Bangor and Portland have both failed to approve similarly proposed ordinances. The Maine Civil Liberties Union opposed the proposed ordinance in Portland, and the city’s Public Safety Committee rejected the measure last year.
Some Falmouth town councilors have indicated they would support the chief’s proposal. “I would most likely support this (sex offender) ordinance to protect our children,” Councilor Bonny Rodden said prior to Wednesday’s council meeting, where the proposal was scheduled to be introduced. Councilor Fred Chase said he has no sympathy for sex offenders, and that, if a residency restriction is all the council can do, he would support it. Councilor Chris Orestis also said he is in favor of setting the restrictions. “The police chief would have my support 100 percent on that,” he said.

www.theforecaster.net in two administrative letters to all Maine schools, but which an investigation last year by The Forecaster found was not represented in many schools’ policies and in some cases not being observed by school staff.

restraint and seclusion. “What we’ve got here is pretty fantastic,” Smith Howard said of the proposed rule changes. “It’s better than a majority of other states.” However, she said she would have liked to have seen the new rules prohibit schools from including restraint in a student’s individual education plan, or IEP. Currently, schools can include restraint as part of a student’s plan, and Smith Howard said that can result in “planned” restraints, something disability rights advocates would like to see disappear. Some members of the stakeholder group also fought to include reporting requirements, which would have schools report the number of restraints performed and how many students were restrained every year. “So, that way (the DOE) could figure out, does a school have a problem, and if it is a problem, why is that the case,” Smith

Howard said. Currently, Maine schools are not required to report any data about restraint and seclusion of students. Other states, such as Connecticut and Texas, do require this kind of reporting. Smith Howard said the members of the stakeholder group supported the reporting requirements, but that the DOE did not want to require it. She said her group would lobby the Legislature to include the requirement in the rules it will review and ultimately approve, likely in the next session. The DRC, which frequently represents parents when they file a complaint about the use of restraint and seclusion, also pushed to include a formal complaint process in the new rules. “We’ve had 50 complaints in the last two years,” Smith Howard said, adding that in the past two weeks alone the DRC has received six restraint- or seclusion-related complaints from parents. She pointed to budget cuts, which have forced districts to lay off the ed techs who work one-on-one with disabled students or those with behavior problems, as part of the problem. Deb Davis, a Falmouth resident, stakeholder group member and parent of a child who experienced seclusion and restraint, said she has had several parents call her since she began advocating for students. “In one story, a mom’s son was in seclusion for five hours,” Davis said. “Even though it’s not in the news, it’s happening every day. There are kids being hurt.” She said she is cautiously optimistic that the DOE will accept the recommendations the group put together. “I do think we worked really hard to protect kids,” Davis said. Once the DOE puts together its proposed changes and presents them to the education commissioner, the public will have 30 days to comment before a legislative committee takes up the issue. DOE spokesman David Connerty-Marin said the department is not ready to comment on the proposed changes, since the stakeholder group only finished meeting last week. However, he said there would be multiple public hearings, probably in November and December, on the rule changes before they’re sent to the Legislature, followed by legislative hearings next year.

land, nearly $623,000, and RSU 1, which covers the towns of Bath, West Bath, Arrowsic, Phippsburg and Woolwich, is estimated to see a $904,000 increase. Some districts may see more modest increases. SAD 75, which includes Harpswell, Topsham, Bowdoin and Bowdoinham, could see a $408,000 increase; Brunswick, $244,000; SAD 51, which covers Cumberland and North Yarmouth, $118,000, and Yarmouth, $68,000. While at first glance, Falmouth’s projected increase of $1.6 million seems to top the list of increases, the district’s finance
“I’ve coached sports and looked at sports, (and) I’ve never seen anything like what these girls go through in terms of ... lifting your own body weight,” he said. “And the blisters: (Emma) came home the other night, and her heels were just kind of shredded, because she’s working so hard to get ready for the (November) regionals.” Emma practices about three to four times a week, which before a competition can stretch to seven days a week and sometimes several hours at a time, all year round. “The amount of time they have to put into Irish dance to make it to this kind of level ... they give up an awful lot of other

director, Dan O’Shea, said the increase is attributed to a new elementary school that opened this year, paid for by state funds. “These figures don’t take into account any current-year enrollment changes – which will show increases over last year and should mean additional funds – or other adjustments, so we need to look at it with caution,” O’Shea said. The state’s share of interest on the bond for the $37.7 million Falmouth Elementary

things,” Joe Fitzpatrick said. He noted that the world championship “is kind of like (Emma’s) Olympics. For her to reach her goal at 10 will allow her, when she goes to high school, to play some other sports, maybe, and cut back on this a little bit.” Emma is by herself on a stage at the big competitions, scrutinized by a panel of judges and watched by an audience of hundreds who must remain quiet. “It’s terrifying when you’re up there by yourself,” Molly Fitzpatrick said. “I give Emma a lot of props, because as a 10-year-old, it takes a lot to go out there
School is estimated at $1.6 million. “So essentially, (it means) flat funding for Falmouth with that factor removed,” O’Shea said. This is only the second year the DOE has released preliminary estimates aimed at assisting schools in the budget process. The numbers could change before they are finalized, depending largely on enrollment and whether the Legislature makes additional changes to the funding formula.

I think of how I’m going to get through the dances, and what it takes to push myself. ... I try and do my best to make sure everything’s right. Everything goes away, and I just think about dancing.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter: @learics.
