This will be his fourth term, and he has served nine years on the council. “I am looking forward to continuing the work we have in front of us,” he said. “We’ve heard from all the candidates that there are things to work on – communication, better partnering with nearby communities and the Regional School Unit 5. There are a lot of things to do on the council.” Gunning called her candidacy a long shot, but said she was proud of the support she received. “I will keep working to make good things happen in Freeport,” she said Tuesday night.

Faced with opposition, Yarmouth agency kills senior housing plan By Amy Anderson YARMOUTH — Yarmouth Senior Housing has dropped its plan for a new housing development on Mill Street. Although there was support for affordable senior housing in concept, the Mill Street location met stiff public opposition. Margaret Downing, president of the private, nonprofit corporation that also owns Bartlett Circle, said the proposed development on two acres of town-owned land turned out to be more controversial than Yarmouth Senior Housing expected. The new development would have
added about 25 to 30 apartments for residents 55 years and older. The property is at the end of Mill Street at the edge of the Royal River Park, near Rowe School and close to Yarmouth Crossing. Downing said the location was chosen for its access to critical services. But after receiving what she called a lot of negative feedback after the proposal was unveiled at a neighborhood meeting in early October, Downing said the plan is now off the table. “A small group attended that informational meeting and while the concept of affordable housing was well supported,
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/105252
the site got mixed reviews,” she said. “There was support from some, but others were very strongly opposed.” Downing said within a few days of the meeting, residents were circulating information via email about the project and distributing fliers at Royal River Park opposing the Mill Street site. “There was a lot of activity from people who were opposed to using any bit of the park for the project,” she said. “It was about the location.” Downing said she received one email that indicated there would be litigation if the Mill Street location was pursued. She said Yarmouth Senior Housing decided against going forward with a project that would be a source of such opposition. “We don’t have the means to defend a lawsuit, we don’t have that money, so we
are looking for a new location,” she said. “We will recast our net.”
She said she has asked people to give Yarmouth Senior Housing ideas for other locations, and they are hoping to identify another site as equally suitable and competitive for financing as the Mill Street location. “I’m optimistic,” she said.
Town Manager Nat Tupper said there have been a few suggestions for consideration, including an addition off the community room at Town Hall or in place of the Yarmouth Community Services modular building.
Other options have included land next to the fire station, space on Forest Falls Drive, a lot at McKearney Village or the Sligo Road Pole Yard, Tupper said.
Downing said Yarmouth Senior Housing is interested in hearing ideas and suggestions from the public and can be reached by calling 829-4354. Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter: @amy_k_anderson.

Fate of indoor soccer arena rests with Freeport Town Council By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — A narrowly divided Planning Board declined to make a recommendation to the Town Council in support of an indoor soccer arena proposed near the town-owned Hunter Road fields. While board members on Nov. 2 said they support the proposal by Seacoast United Maine to build a nearly 50,000-squarefoot indoor sports arena near the recycling center on Hedgehog Mountain Road, they did not believe the project fits in the Rural Residential 1 zone. They voted 4-3 against creating an overlay district to allow an indoor recreational facility in the RR-1 zone. They also voted unanimously against allowing recreational outdoor facilities in all of RR-1 – a district that makes up 70 percent of the town. The matter will now go to the Town Council with a recommendation that the project is inconsistent with zoning, and councilors will decide what to do next. Michael Healy, past president of the soccer club, said on Monday that Seacoast United will “just have to wait to see what the council thinks.” “I wish (the Planning Board) had a positive recommendation, but it was a split vote,” he said. “Of course it is disappointOVERSTOCKS • CLOSEOUTS • SURPLUS • CASE DISCOUNTS

ing, but it’s not fatal.” Council Chairman Jim Cassida on Tuesday said Healy and Seacoast United have made no requests “at this stage” to present their proposal to the council. The council approved a deal last December with Seacoast, a nonprofit soccer club based in Topsham, even though indoor recreational facilities and nonprofit organizations are not approved uses under the town’s zoning ordinance. Healy said the land surrounding the proposed indoor arena is already used for recreational purposes and the landfill and recycling area is commercial. “The only difference between what we are proposing to do and what the town is presently doing is having recreational use inside this building,” he said. “I don’t think this is a big change in this area under the Comprehensive Plan.” Board members Theresa Oleksiw, Greg Savona, Ann Brandt and Harry Virtue voted against the overlay district.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/105425
Oleksiw said she supports the project, but said the proposal is inconsistent with the Comprehensive Plan. “Whenever you put an overlay in place it should be complementary to nearby uses,” she said. “From what I see there are no 60,000-square-foot arenas nearby. There are playing fields nearby.” Chairwoman Wendy Caisse and members Aaron Cannan and Malcolm Collins supported the overlay district. Cannan said that although the process “feels backwards and a little bit wrong,” he said the location is complementary to the surrounding uses and the project would provide a benefit for the community. Collins said while he is open to an overlay district, he would like to re-evaluate some of the RR-1 language and permitted uses. Most of the nearly dozen residents who offered comments were opposed to the overlay district. SNOW G IN PLOW
Tom Ross of Murch Road said he could support the project if it were built in a “commercially zoned, appropriate district.” “If the Planning Board and the Town Council choose to disregard the Comprehensive Plan, the Town Charter, and the wishes of its residents in any zoning district,” he said, “I believe the value of having any zoning ordinance is pointless.” Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or email@example.com.

By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — Movie-goers won’t necessarily have to travel to Brunswick or Portland starting next week, when the Nordica Theatre is scheduled to open at midnight on Thursday, Nov. 17, at Freeport Village Station. The theater, operated by Massachusettsbased Belmont Capital, is at the corner of Mill and Depot streets. It has six screens, stadium seating and will feature all-digital projection and audio. Patrons will have free access to the 550-space parking garage at Village Station. Belmont also operates the Windham Five Star Cinema, the Wells Five Star Cinema and Bangor Mall Cinemas. Deborah Belisle, Belmont’s director of operations, said the auditoriums range from 86 to 161 seats. There is also a party room and the capability for business meetings in the theaters, she said. “We are dedicated to keeping the price of movie tickets and concessions moderate for the public,” Belisle said. “People will get a better presentation here for not as much money.” There is also a plan to work with local restaurants for a dinner-and-a-movie deal, she said. Nora Cleaves, general manager of Nordica, declined to disclose ticket prices in advance of next week’s opening. But she said the theater is working with Berenson Associates, developers of the Village Station, to create two Freeport Appreciation Days for residents. The theater will open with “The Twilight

Benefit to launch Freeport concert series By Amy Anderson FREEPORT — Through the efforts of some dedicated theater supporters, a benefit concert will be held at the Freeport Performing Arts Center on Holbrook Street to help launch a series of high-quality local performances. Freeport Performing Arts will present Symphony-Plus at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19, as the inaugural concert to support the launch of FPA Presents, a performing arts series slated to begin in 2012. FPA was formed by Tom Acousti and Diane McLellan of 3 for 3 Partnered Events and Sam Hunneman and Maryellen Carew of MASISTA – Maryellen And Sam In Support of The Arts. Acousti is also the manager of the FPAC. Hunneman said they want to provide the community with affordable and quality events at the Freeport Performing Arts Center and hope to produce three to five classical music, jazz, dance or theatrical events each year. The benefit concert will feature Laura

She will perform with Robert Lehmann conducting the Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra and Robert Russell leading the USM Chorale. Hunneman, former member of the FPAC building committee and an admitted “theater mom,” said Kargul is a Freeport resident who has been a supporter of FPAC. She said Kargul was instrumental in finding a Steinway piano for the facility and served on the FPAC advisory board. “It’s important to us that we provide the community with affordable, quality performances for residents to enjoy,” Hunneman said. “We will strive to keep the cost low because we want to fill the seats.

Proposed Downeaster schedule a blow to Freeport, Brunswick By Emily Guerin BRUNSWICK — Amtrak Downeaster passenger rail service hasn’t started north of Portland, but the number of daily round trips to Brunswick has already been reduced. The change was good news to some Brunswick residents. But the resulting train schedule could be bad news for businesses in Brunswick and Freeport that expected the Downeaster to deliver day-trippers and shoppers with money to spend. Patricia Quinn, executive director of the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority, said Nov. 4 that when the expanded service begins next fall, the Downeaster will only make two daily trips to Freeport and Brunswick. The train was expected to make at least three and eventually four or five a day. The decrease is due to a delay in construction of a train maintenance facility in Brunswick. The building would house the trains overnight for routine maintenance and cleaning. That would allow the Downeaster to end all of its runs in Brunswick, not in Portland, and increase the number of daily runs between the two stops. Without the Brunswick facility, the train will have to travel between Brunswick and Portland twice a day without passengers. In response to some Brunswick residents’ concerns about environmental and health impacts, NNERPA increased the size of the building from 40,000 square feet to 60,000 square feet – large enough to house all three train sets indoors. But in a Nov. 3 letter to Brunswick Town Manager Gary Brown, Quinn said increasing the building’s size to mitigate the impact of noise and vibration on nearby homes would push the project over budget. She later said initial estimates put the cost of the expanded building at around $7.5 million. NNERPA had only budgeted about $5 million for the project. Quinn said NNEPRA is hoping to secure the additional funding from the federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or TIGER, program. The bulk of the cost will still be funded by state bonds. The reduction in daily round trips isn’t as problematic to Sandy Updegraph, executive director of the Freeport Economic Development Corp., as the timing of the trains that do run. According to Quinn, a preliminary schedule has northbound trains passing through Freeport just before 12:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Trains heading south from Brunswick will stop in Freeport just after 7 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. This schedule would not allow a visitor from Boston to spend the day shopping in Freeport, Updegraph noted. “The impact of having fewer, rather than more, round trips is certainly obvious in that there would be fewer people passing through, but the bigger impact is if NNERPA is able to get a (layover) facility in Brunswick ... those additional trips would be later in the day, and so we could have people ... come from the Boston area and spend the entire day in Freeport and go back that same day,” Updegraph said. Wayne Davis, chairman of the railadvocacy group TrainRiders/Northeast, called the prospect of beginning service to Brunswick with only two trips a day “frightening.” “The frequency of service is one of the
big selling points on any train service,” he said. “It’s very difficult to make two trips a day fit very many people’s personal schedules.” Davis expressed concern that potential Downeaster passengers could be turned off by the infrequent schedule, and suggested the service could have started with four or even five daily trips to Boston. He also expressed concern about the impact of decreased service on the Brunswick business community, especially new businesses at Brunswick Station that may have been expecting more than two daily round trips. “Everybody is looking to traffic that would be generated by the five round trips,” he said. “It’s a great disappointment
for us after all these years.” Michael Lyne, on-site project manager for JHR Development, which built Brunswick Station and the Inn at Brunswick Station, said the company was never promised a set number of daily train runs. But he guessed that “all of the small businesses up and down Maine Street are looking forward to more bites of the apple vs. fewer. Any Amtrak train rolling into town is better than none, but if we can create more volume for small businesses here without adding cars, that should be the goal.” But for many of the residents of the Bouchard Drive neighborhood in Brunswick, which borders the site of the future train maintenance facility, the delay in constructing the building was welcome news.

“We think it’s encouraging that they’re waiting,” said Anna Nelson, a Bouchard Drive resident and neighborhood representative to NNEPRA’s advisory group on the maintenance facility. Nelson said she hopes the delay will prompt NNEPRA to consider putting the facility on land owned by local contractor Ted Crooker in East Brunswick, a site that many Bouchard Drive neighbors preferred,

High court to hear ‘smart’-meter arguments Lawmaker questions opt-out fees By Emily Parkhurst PORTLAND — The debate over Central Maine Power Co.’s “smart” electrical meters is headed to the state’s highest court. A group of CMP customers filed the appeal last week with the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. They claim the Maine Public Utilities Commission, which dismissed a request for an investigation into the safety of wireless meters, violated the state statute that requires the regulatory agency to ensure utilities provide safe service to their customers.
“They have specifically said on several occasions that they won’t make a decision on these (health and security) issues,” said Ed Friedman, a Bowdoinham resident and lead complainant. “When they specifically avoid their responsibility, that makes the whole darn thing null and void.” The PUC declined to investigate the 19-person complaint on Aug. 31, declaring that a previous probe that resulted in requiring CMP to offer opt-outs to customers who do not wish to have the meters installed on their homes or businesses was sufficient. The smart meters transmit customer data wirelessly to CMP, and will allow customers to track their electricity use in real time. The plan is to give customers the option
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/105358
of using electricity during off-peak hours, which could save them money and reduce the use of fossil fuel sources used mostly during peak hours. But PUC complaints rolled in last year as some customers expressed concerns that the meters were not secure, could cause fires in homes with older electrical systems, and could affect the health of some people. In May, the PUC required CMP to offer its customers the option of opting out of the smart meter program. The opt-outs require customers pay an additional fee to keep their old meters, or to have the wireless capabilities of the smart meter turned off. Friedman said the decision to make customers pay for opting out of a service that critics say has not been proved safe or secure was a mistake. “In reality it’s a false choice. We see this as a great experiment,” Friedman said. “This is a great experiment on Mainers, affecting both our health and privacy.” Friedman said his group has also called for the resignation of the commissioners who made the decision not to investigate the safety and security of the meters, and said he’d like to see the smart meter program abandoned. “The state statute says (the PUC commissioners) need to ensure service is safe. It doesn’t say just make sure there’s a good chance service is safe, it says it must be
safe,” Friedman said. In addition to the PUC appeal, state Rep. Roberta Beavers, D-South Berwick, has filed emergency legislation that would prevent those who have opted out of the smart meter program from having to pay the $40 initial opt-out fee and a $12-per-month fee for meter readings. “Essentially (the bill) is to remedy the inequity that was created by the opt-out charges,” Beavers said. Beavers said she did not understand why people who did not want expensive equipment installed on their houses would have to pay a tax to keep their old meters. “If people don’t want this on their dwelling, they should not have to have them,” she said. Beavers said she has opted out of smart meter installation, but does not necessarily have a problem with the program. Her concern is the charge assessed to those who opted out. “They’ve already put the $40 (opt-out charge) on my bill. I’m going to contest it,” she said. Beavers’ initial emergency legislation was not accepted by the Legislative Council, but she said she will appeal that decision on Nov. 17. CMP spokesman John Carroll said the company is still on track to have more than 600,000 smart meters installed by the first quarter of 2012. He said the company does not have any

DA won’t charge Falmouth School Board member By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — The Cumberland County district attorney will not pursue a complaint filed against a Falmouth School Board member. Frequent town government critic Michael Doyle filed an assault charge against the board member, Andrew Kinley, in August. Doyle claimed Kinley touched him against Doyle’s will during a School Board retreat Doyle was attending as a spectator. Kinley admitted he touched Doyle’s arm when he asked Doyle to sit down in the seating provided for the public, rather than standing near the board members with his video camera. Doyle said Kinley’s story was a lie, and that the video he made of the incident would prove he was right. The Falmouth Police Department said it submitted all the evidence it had in the incident to the district attorney’s office. The DA last week declined to file criminal charges against Kinley. Doyle still has the option of a civil lawsuit. Neither he nor Kinley responded to requests for comment. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or email@example.com.

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

Finding a good medium is rare Have you ever been to a medium? Not a psychic. A medium. I saw a medium once. She told me all manner of fascinating things. And at the end of No Sugar an hour filled with insights into children, business and family relationships, I exclaimed, “But wait! What about my love life?!” To which she dryly responded: “Three to five. That’s what I’m seeing. Three to five.” To my widowed ears, this sounded more like a prison sentence than the number of additional years I’d be waiting to meet Mr. Wonderful. It was depressing. And even more disturbing was Sandi Amorello the fact that my “three to five years” of waiting was reportedly going to yield a man who would, according to her, be tall, as much as seven to eight

years my junior, and have strawberry blond hair. Now, I come from a family of northern Europeans. Romantically, I have never been attracted to blondes. I generally lust after men with dark hair. Additionally, I told her I had already dated the very man she was describing, and it had not gone particularly well. The next vision this woman had was of a piece of meat. As in, filet mignon. On a plate. I think she said it was raw. OK, so this could yield many interpretations. I projected that perhaps the meat on the plate was a reference to men mistakenly attempting to take me out to dinner at the Outback Steakhouse; beefy men, or men cooking up filets for me on their back-porch grills. Or maybe I was, indeed, just supposed to be viewing the men in this “three-to-five-year” waiting period as pieces of meat – shallow yet enjoyable ways to pass the time. That seemed a bit cold-hearted, but hey, I’d paid the woman a sum of cash equal to our monthly cable bill, so I needed a positive spin. Waiting half a decade for the arrival of Prince Charming just wasn’t doing it for me – unless he was a wealthy cattle rancher who could get me an unlimited complimentary supply of my favorite cowboy boots from that little shop in Boston. As I left her “office,” trailing behind the friend whose suggestion it was to venture into the world of those with a window into the future, I remember feeling a bit upset at the dismal dating situation this medium chick had left me to contemplate. Really? Three to five more years? As a woman who had already been dating for half a decade, this seemed unfair and unnecessarily cruel news. Especially after I’d paid her in cash. At first, I rebelled against her unfair sentence. I mean, I don’t really believe in most of that new-agey stuff anyway. I certainly saw no reason to allow some self-proclaimed medium’s incense-induced prediction to put a gray cloud over the next 36 to 60 months of my life – potentially tossing me into a dating tailspin. In the end, I decided to make the most of it. I thought, “OK. Great. If this is to be my plight for the next three to five years, I’ll just resign myself to my fate. And I’ll relish the abundance of dinners out for filet mignon, cooked medium rare – with sauteed mushrooms and a nice bottle of cabernet sauvignon, with blackberry undertones.” Still, it’s tough to get excited about a date when you’re already armed with the knowledge he’s a cosmic no-go. Even if he does grill a mean shish kebab.

A full year passed after “My Favorite Medium’s” prediction, and sure enough, no Mr. Fabulous. Then summer No. 2 came and went. There were a couple of possible Mr. Wonderfuls, but no real deal. Next summer will mark the end of year No. 3 of my sentencing. Hopefully, by then, I’ll no longer be eying the guy at the butcher counter at Whole Foods – and my rare medium will be proved correct. About everything but the strawberry blond hair. Meanwhile, at least I don’t have to worry about becoming anemic.

Falmouth has a village that works Fulfillment is what I felt as I walked to the Shops at Falmouth Village. In 1999 I had succeeded in getting a referendum passed to protect the beautiful trees on the Little League ball field. I am 88 years old now and I use a walker. I walked down Depot Road, took a nice, cement path to the playground, where mothers were with their children, sitting on benches while the children rode their tricycles. From there I went through the trees to the plaza, where there were more families gathered (I wish they would get the fountain working). I had lunch, went to Staples, the Hallmark store and the toy store. As I walked backed, I thought this is what the Falmouth Village is, just as planned. Families and their children enjoying the freedom to walk and play safely. It felt so good. Marie C. Brown Falmouth

Proud of Falmouth High School football I am not a die-hard football fan. However, I am a fan of Falmouth High School football since the team was founded by dedicated parents over 10 years ago. Boy, they have come a long way. Sure, I want to see a victory. We all would love to have the Class B football title pennant grace our school gymnasium wall. What we do have is a solid group of players who work hard and play hard. They love what they are doing and ticket holders are being entertained to the fullest. Boys and girls of all ages come to cheer their team on. It makes for a fantastic Friday night activity. The field is bustling. We also have leadership. Under the past and present direction of John Fitzsimmons, Don and Dave Geary, Jim Kane, Zareh Derhagopian, Randy Ford, Tom Clemence, and many other dedicated volunteers, we have intelligent, thoughtful parents and volunteers representing their community with one of the great American sports. One of these days Falmouth High School will be the winning team. As the high school football season winds down, fans start turning to basketball, ice hockey, skiing, etc., for their late fall and winter team sport. Let’s not forget this dynamo group of team players who, along with their families, put their hearts and souls into each and every game. As far as I’m concerned, this team is one of the great sports accomplishments this town has recently seen. Cathy Prichard Falmouth
Channelization for Cumberland rail crossings I am writing to voice my support for the railroad crossing quiet zone in Cumberland. We live next to the train tracks at the Muirfield Road crossing and feel that safety should be the primary focus of this discussion. The new Downeaster trains will be going upwards of 60 mph, and rather than counting on whistle horns or expensive upgrades to crossing equipment, pursuing the option of channelization at the railroad crossings, as Falmouth is considering, will slow traffic and make the crossings highly visible to drivers. The traffic channelization devices provide a proved safety benefit without the same costs associated with four-quadrant gate systems. Median barriers that meet the criteria within the Final Rule on the Use of Locomotive Horns at Highway-Rail Grade Crossings are approved supplemental safety measures for the establishment of a quiet zone. Many studies have been performed at locations where driver violations occurred at highway-rail grade crossings. After installation of channelization devices at these locations, a significant reduction in driver violations occurred. I urge the Cumberland Town Council to seek a quiet zone and investigate the use of channelization at the railroad crossings. Maura Kenney Cumberland

A happy bird is a $100 bird A couple of years back, we ordered a goose for Christmas instead of our customary turkey. For some odd reason, how much The Universal the all-natural, freerange, organic bird was going to cost hadn’t occur to me until I went to pick it up at the corner grocer. Very tasty, but it’s hard to really enjoy a $100 goose. This Thanksgiving, we have had a request from one of our environmentally conscious daughters and her husband for a “happy bird.” They don’t care whether Edgar Allen Beem the turkey is certified organic as long as the turkey “had a life,” meaning it was not factory farmed, raised in a cage and pumped up on steroids until its breast was so big it couldn’t stand up. So I went down to the corner grocer to place an order for a happy bird. An organic turkey from just up the road would have cost $4.69 a pound. Reluctant to follow a $100 goose with a $100 gobbler, I ordered an all-natural turkey from up the coast for $3.99 per pound. As it happens I had caught a glimpse of those $80 Thanksgiving turkeys on my way back from Belfast a couple of days before, a flock of hundreds of big white birds scratching around in the mud in a pen on the side of Route 1. They didn’t look all that happy to me, but then maybe, as the local grocer suggested, they had just been rounded up for market and had been happily roaming the farm until then. Spending $80 on a turkey (about four times as much as supermarket bird) strikes me as something of an exercise in feel-good environmentalism, but if it makes my family happy, so be it. Food is about my only extravagance. We’ve lived in the same little house for 30 years, don’t go on exotic vacations, don’t drive expensive cars, and I buy most of my clothes at the L.L. Bean employee store. The pants I’m wearing (in fact all my pants) cost 25 cents, so I guess I can afford an $80 bird once a year.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a family of two between the ages of 51 and 70 (that’s us, sweetheart) can eat a nutritious diet on a thrifty plan for $81 a week, on a low-cost plan for $103 a week, a moderate plan for $128 a week, and a liberal plan for $160. I guess that makes us banquet-fed pigs at $200 a week. That’s what I just calculated we spend on food and that doesn’t include takeout pho from the noodle bar and a dollar a day for my morning bagel. I do most of the grocery shopping and, yes, I do tend to splurge. But, in case you hadn’t noticed, food prices hit an all-time high in February and haven’t backed down much. Weather extremes caused by climate change, smaller crop yields, diversion of crops for bio-fuels, and higher demand driven by population growth and improved standards of living in places like China are generally blamed for the increase in the cost of food. I used to worry about children in India starving. Now I wonder how a young family with a couple of kids can afford to eat. When I ran into my sister-in-law Marji at the supermarket a few weeks ago, I asked her if she had noticed the increases. “Everything costs $5 now,” Marji observed. I checked out her thesis as I did my shopping. Pork chops, $4.49 per pound. Cheerios, $4.30. Kraft Mac ‘n’ Cheese, $4.63. Fritos, $4.90. Haagen Daz rum raisin ice cream, $4.59. Mixed nuts, $5.99. Weetabix, $5.47. Fresh pollock, $4.99. Yep, Marj was right, everything at the grocery store does cost $5 now. I do feel guilty about spending so much and eating so well when others have so little, but the whole concept of food justice is somewhat new to me. On one hand, paying the true cost of food is a fundamental tenet of ethical food consumption. Eating local and eating organic cost more, like that $100 goose and $80 turkey. On the other hand, if we just ate peanut butter sandwiches for Thanksgiving, we’d save money that we could donate to Oxfam or the local food pantry. Of course, with the drought in the South driving peanut prices up from $450 a ton last year to $1,200 a ton this year, we’ll probably soon be paying $5 a pound for peanut butter, too. Maybe I should have just ordered the $100 organic bird. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth. The Universal Notebook is his personal, weekly look at the world around him.

Richard Hilton, 61: Founder of Edgecomb Potters CUMBERLAND — Richard Hilton, 61, of Cumberland Foreside, died after a long illness on Nov. 4 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough. Born in 1950 in Melrose, Mass., he was the son of Clyde and Phyllis Hilton. A communications major at Emerson College in Boston, he had Hilton planned a career in broadcast. He married Christine Ruggelo Hilton; they were together for 40 years. In 1976 they moved to Maine and began Edgecomb Potters at the same time they started their family. They had two sons, Craig Richard and Bradford Julian. In their pottery business, Hilton and his wife handthrew pots and sold them out of the red school house that was their home, studio and the original Edgecomb Potters store on Boothbay Road in Edgecomb. Because of Hilton’s ingenuity, Edgecomb Potters became one of the businesses that sold in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston on ble Availaays 7 d ek a we

its opening day in 1977 and for some years after that. As a potter, he recognized that he needed to spend time on developing his artistic craft, and his focus and dedication led him to develop techniques completely new to the industry. An innovator in production pottery, he and the company did things that no one had ever thought of, later becoming a leading ceramic chemist keeping Edgecomb’s techniques and glazers on the cutting edge. Over the years he developed hundreds of glazes through experimentation and observation, mixing and firing over and over until the glazes came to life; Copper Red was his first nationally recognized glaze. Hilton’s work has been selected by the Russian Ambassador to the United States to be presented to Portland’s Russian sister city’s mayor. One of his large vases with Kyoto Forest glaze was given as a gift to the President of Taiwan. Hilton’s work was showcased multiple times in industry magazines including Ceramics Monthly and Niche Magazine as well as being recognized in the Boston Globe, American Style, the Dallas Times, the San Diego Union, Downeast, and others. In 1993, Edgecomb Potters was listed as one of the “Best of the Road” by Rand McNally Road Atlas. In the first year of Edgecomb Potters, Hilton had quietly asked God for just a little success. He knew that his great success was
a blessing from God which was nurtured by hard work and commitment. He loved the form and function of what he made and reveled in the fantastic colors that he was able to create. He had the eye of a master artist without any training. When he made something he wondered at the joy it brought him and others. He was grateful to God for the opportunity and gift. Filled with tremendous love, pride, and concern for his family, Hilton loved to play with and tease his boys when they were little. Christmas was always celebrated first as the birth of His Lord and then as a day of fun with gifts, food and laughter filling their home. As his sons grew into men, Hilton loved to spend time guiding, talking and sharing with them, hoping they would work hard to do well while not taking life too seriously. He was once asked in an interview which piece of Edgecomb he was most proud of and his answer was simple, his two sons. His friends and family will remember him as a warm-hearted man who loved people who firmly believe that everyone who is given much, must also give much. He loved to surprise people with gifts and made special occasions so much better because he loved to see the joy in others. He was generous with organizations that helped the poor such as Central Africa Vision, Hope House and The Root Cellar. Hilton said, “I believe that great art pot-
tery encompasses a spirit reflected in life; no two pieces, as no two people, no two living creatures, are exactly alike.” He was a special creation who left his fingerprints on many in his passing. He will be missed. Predeceased by his father, Hilton is survived by his mother Phyllis of Saco; his wife Christine of Cumberland; his two sons Craig Hilton of Cumberland and Brad Hilton of San Diego, Calif.; three brothers, James of St. Augustine, Fla., Clyde of Haverhill, Mass., and Scott of Boston, Mass.; as well as the Profenna family of Everett, Mass.; the Ruggelo family of Amesbury, Mass., and the Hommel family of Revere, Mass. A celebration of his life was held on Nov. 9 at First Baptist Church, Canco Road in Portland. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Root Cellar, 94 Washington Ave., Portland, 04103.

Hilma H. Barter, 89 NORTH YARMOUTH — Hilma H. Barter, 89, of North Yarmouth, passed away Oct. 18 at Gosnell House. Named after a Swedish film star her mother admired, Barter was born June 10, 1922 in Yarmouth to George and Bessie Hewitt. Soon after she was born, her brother began calling her Mary Barter and the name stuck. Barter loved caring for children and began babysitting at eight years old. She was known for baking nearly every day; those who stopped at her house were guaranteed a fresh cup of coffee and a meal. In her spare time she enjoyed knitting, sewing, raising
Obituaries her chickens, gardening and bird watching. A strong proponent of many things, she believed strongly in gay and civil rights, organic food and natural healing. Known for stretching her tight budget, she loved Christmas and worked hard to make each year magical for her children and grandchildren. Instead of purchasing her gifts at a store, she often hosted toy parties, saved Top Value and S&H stamps to redeem, and sold to friends and family through Popular Club to acquire bonus points for toys. The weeks before Christmas were a very busy time for her, spending her days sewing, knitting and baking. When her daughter Becky was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Barter stayed by her side, and they laughed and cried together. She spent her days cooking and caring for Becky until she passed away just a month before turning 39. Barter was predeceased by her parents; her older brother J. Oakland Hewitt; her daughter Becky Grass; her sister Virginia Ring; her grandson Steven Megquier; her husband of nearly 60 years Clayton; and her daughter-in-law Vera Brown.

Falmouth sweeps Class B soccer crowns By Michael Hoffer The Falmouth soccer program doubled its pleasure Saturday, as both the boys’ and girls’ teams won Class B state championships at Hampden Academy. The girls went first and got a first half goal from junior Alex Bernier, who continued her season-long flair for the dramatic, and held on from there to defeat Presque Isle, 1-0, and repeat as champions with their seventh crown in 11 seasons and 10th overall. The boys then battled a very good Camden Hills team, but thanks to the heroics of junior Grant Burfiend, a Yachtsmen playoff hero extraordinaire, they made it eight titles in 12 years and 10 all-time, 2-1. It marked the first time since 2006 that both squads reached the pinnacle in the same season.
A lot of fun Falmouth’s girls won Class
The Falmouth boys’ and girls’ soccer teams both reached the Class B pinnacle Saturday and celebrated as one afterwards. The girls edged Presque Isle, 1-0, while the boys downed Camden Hills, 2-1.
B last fall and welcomed Wally LeBlanc as the team’s new coach this fall. LeBlanc had plenty of talent to work with, but it took some time for the squad to hit its stride. The Yachtsmen started 5-0-1 (which included a 1-0 home victory over York and a 1-0 overtime win at Yarmouth on
a Bernier goal), but dropped two games to Greely (5-1 away and 2-1 at home) in a five-day span. Late-season losses at York (2-0) and at home to Yarmouth (1-0) were remedied with a 1-0 overtime win at Cape Elizabeth (Bernier again had the decisive tally) to close the regular season. Falmouth’s 9-4-1 mark gave
it the third seed in Western Class B. After blanking No. 6 Yarmouth in surprisingly easy fashion in the quarterfinals, 4-0, the Yachtsmen twice led leads slip away at No. 2 York before the teams went to penalty kicks, where Falmouth prevailed, 3-2. That win sent the Yachtsmen to undefeated, top-ranked
Morse for the regional final last Wednesday. While some thought the Shipbuilders weren’t legitimate, due to their schedule, LeBlanc knew otherwise and indeed, Falmouth got a battle for 80 minutes. The Yachtsmen trailed 1-0 at the half and could have been down by more, but things changed in the second half as junior Cassie Darrow scored twice (the first set up by junior Caitlin Bucksbaum and the second on a breakaway) and Falmouth held on to advance, 2-1. “We had a strong heart-toheart talk at halftime about how we wanted to finish the season,” said LeBlanc. “I asked the girls to play the game with heart and see what happens. I thought Morse was sensational. They were probably the toughest team we played all year. Our resilience was the difference.”

By Michael Hoffer The powerhouse defending Class C state champion Yarmouth football team took another emphatic step toward a repeat crown Friday night. Hosting fourth-ranked Lisbon in a rematch of last year’s memorable regional final, the No. 1 Clippers again demonstrated that their offense is second to none and that their defense and special teams are superb as well as they held the Greyhounds in
check in a 38-0 victory. Yarmouth improved to 10-0, extended its two-year win streak to 22, ended Lisbon’s season at 7-3 and advanced to host No. 2 Traip (8-2) in the Western C Final Saturday at 12:30 p.m. “It was a pretty good win,” said Clippers coach Jim Hartman. “The kids played very well. You never know what you’ll get from Lisbon. Some teams you know what’s coming and you just have to line up and

Quick start Yarmouth, which won all eight regular season games with varying degrees of ease before ousting No. 8 Oak Hill (45-6) in the quarterfinals, didn’t just edge the Greyhounds in last year’s regional final, 14-12. The Clippers also had their way with visiting Lisbon back on Sept. 30, 34-6. Saturday produced more of
the same. An early Lisbon fumble gave Yarmouth the ball at the 41. Senior standout Anders Overhaug then took the second play from scrimmage 41 yards for the score with 10:15 left in the first quarter. “The hole opened up,” said Overhaug. “I cut around a linebacker and went down the sidelines.” Yarmouth nearly doubled the lead on its next possession but
had to settle for a 26-yard field goal by senior Bryce Snyder late in the first quarter. Then, the first of three Lisbon interceptions set up another Yarmouth score. Junior Caleb Uhl finished off a four-play drive with a 1-yard run for a 17-0 lead with 5:57 left in the half. Yarmouth got the ball to start the second half and it took just

Saturday. Midway through the first half, Bernier took centerstage, as she got to a cross from Bucksbaum and one-timed a blast into the net. After Darrow just missed making it 2-0 (hitting the crossbar), Presque Isle pushed for the equalizer, but it never came as Falmouth’s season ended at 13-4-1 with a Gold Ball. “We came out strong and played very

intelligent in the first half,” said LeBlanc. “We caught them off guard. We played well in the midfield. In the second half, they made the same adjustments we did against Morse. We got on our heels and tried to protect the lead. The girls were intelligent with how they defended. It was a lot of fun. “We didn’t talk about winning a state championship at the beginning of the year. We talked about being the best team we could be and keeping our goals realistic. It was one surprise after another and that gave us a sense of pride. The win at York was a wonderful win for the mental health of all of us. “It was a great first year (for me). The support from the parents, community and athletic director were fantastic.” As always, the Yachtsmen will be hard hit by graduation (seven seniors are on the roster, including three starters), but as always, a strong core will return and that group will be bolstered by key newcomers, suggesting that Falmouth could three-peat for the first time if all goes well. “We have great talent coming back and high hopes of what we can do with it,” LeBlanc said. “It bodes well for next season. The three starters will be tough to replace. The other seniors were great role players.”

and much of the roster was untested, but Falmouth put it together late in the year. After winning their first four games (which included a 2-1 triumph at Cape Elizabeth and a 2-1 home win over York), the Yachtsmen fell at Yarmouth, 2-1. A tie and three wins followed, but the team lost at Greely, 1-0, then, two games later, suffered its worst setback this century, 4-0, at York. With the remaining schedule featuring tests with Yarmouth and Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth could have dropped to a low seed and been forced to play postseason games on the road, but instead, the Yachtsmen showed the first signs of the champions they would become by downing the Clippers (1-0) and rallying to tie the Capers (2-2) to wind up 9-3-2, good for the No. 2 seed in Western B. After a 3-0 win over No. 7 Lincoln in the quarterfinals, Falmouth was pushed to the brink by upstart No. 6 Fryeburg, but juniors Luke Andrews (with just over five minutes to play) and Jeremy Lydick (with 14 seconds to go) scored to help the Yachtsmen advance, 3-2. Falmouth then had to go back to York for the regional final and this time Burfiend played the hero, scoring the game’s lone goal with just seconds to play. Falmouth entered Saturday’s state game with a perfect 9-0 record in the ultimate game (winning Class C in 1996 and 1997 and Class B in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2009). They’d improve to 10-0 in state finals, in a first-ever meeting with Camden Hills, but it didn’t come easily. In the 12th minute, Burfiend put the Yachtsmen on top when his corner kick eluded the Windjammers’ goalkeeper. Camden Hills drew even before halftime, setting the stage for Burfiend to play the star again. With 13:11 to go in regulation, Burfiend broke free and finished for a 2-1 lead. “Grant has come into his own,” said longtime Falmouth coach Dave Halligan. “He’s a talented kid. He was at his best in the big games. He’s a dangerous player.” Falmouth’s defense did the rest and the season ended at 13-3-2 with yet another championship. “This one we really had to work for,” said Halligan. “Our last three games all came down to the last 15 minutes and were one-goal games. We had our ups and downs. It was a roller coaster ride. Exciting and scary at times. I attribute our strength of schedule and resiliency of our players for being the difference. Our goal from the very beginning was to get better every day. After we got beat at York, 4-0, we had a meeting and went undefeated the rest of the way. The kids worked hard. “Camden Hills was very good. They could have competed in our league. It was a good feeling when it ended.” The regional final win was Halligan’s 300th at Falmouth. He’s now 301-7839 with the Yachtsmen and 371-117-55 overall (he spent 1979-86 coaching Cape Elizabeth’s boys’ team). Don’t be surprised if several more victories follow in 2012. While Falmouth will graduate some key seniors, plenty of talent waits in reserve, including many players who played pivotal roles on this squad.

NYA’s run ends in regional final (Editor’s note: For the full version of this story, with additional photos, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer The Cinderella run of the North Yarmouth Academy boys’ soccer team ended one round sooner than hoped. The Panthers, who were the ninth and final team in the Western Class C playoffs, managed to get past No. 8 Mt.
Abram, top-ranked St. Dom’s and No. 4 Lisbon, but finally met their match last Wednesday in the regional final against second-ranked rival Waynflete. NYA upset the Flyers in last year’s regional, 1-0, but this time, they dug an early 3-0 hole and despite a much better effort in the second half, the Panthers fell short, 3-1, and saw their season conclude at 9-7-2. “It’s been a lot of fun,” NYA coach

November 10, 2011
NYA soccer from page 20 preliminary round, St. Dom’s (3-2, on a goal with 5.5 seconds remaining) in the quarterfinals and Lisbon (2-1, on a goal with 13 minutes to go) in the semifinals. The Panthers played host Waynflete to a 1-1 tie Sept. 14 in Portland. Sixteen days later, in Yarmouth, NYA fell, 2-1. The teams had no prior playoff history. The Flyers came out and delivered a first half haymaker. After NYA just missed scoring a minute in when senior Ryan Rousseau couldn’t quite get his head on a free kick, Waynflete started to apply pressure and with 32:32 to go in the first half, junior Paul Runyambo threw the ball in from the side and somehow it bounced twice, directly to an unmarked junior Peabo Knoth right in front, who buried the shot for a 1-0 lead. The Panthers looked to draw even in the 11th minute, but senior Asad Dahia’s cross to Rousseau was just out of reach. Two minutes later, Flyers junior goalkeeper Zander Majercik had to punch away a cross. In the 15th minute, NYA junior Jacob Scammon managed to release a low shot, but Majercik made the stop. Then, with 12:08 left before halftime, the Flyers got another goal, when, on a corner kick, Knoth played the ball to junior Mohammed Suja, whose shot bounced off a defender and landed at the feet of alert freshman Harry BakerConnick, who put home the rebound and Waynflete had the all-important second goal.
turned the corner on another, then ripped a shot with his left foot that beat Salerno to his left. Just like that, the score was 3-0. After scoring, Knoth received a yellow card for taunting and had to sit out the balance of the first half. NYA was the aggressor in the second half, but had dug itself too deep of a hole. With 28:54 left in regulation, Rousseau’s rush was broken up by Waynflete sophomore Carter Burrowes, leading to a corner kick (<span>NYA had a 6-4 advantage for the game), that was cleared. With 25:16 to play, Dahia’s low shot was saved by Majercik. Two minutes later, Dahia got his head on a corner kick from Rousseau, but Majercik made the stop. In the 60th minute, Dahia’s shot was blocked. A minute later, Panthers freshman D.J. Nicholas fed Rousseau, whose shot was wide. The rebound was followed up by senior Forrest Milburn, but his bid was punched away by Majercik, leading to another corner. Two more corners followed in close succession, but none produced a goal. “There was still time, but Zander made some good saves, like he has too many times against us,” Keen said. “Zander
made some technically difficult saves on ground balls where had he coughed up a rebound, we could have put it in.” Finally, with 17:06 remaining, NYA got on the board as Nicholas pounced a failed clear and blasted a shot that Majercik had no chance to stop. From there, however, Waynflete’s defense tightened up significantly and the only good Panthers’ chance came with 9:47 remaining when Rousseau attempted to feed Nicholas, but the pass was just out of reach. The game ended 3-1 and just like that, NYA’s magical run came to a screeching halt. “The kids are disappointed because
they know their first half performance was woeful compared to where they have been,” Keen said. “It’s another case of what might have been. The hole we put ourselves into was just too deep. I’m proud of the second half, disappointed in the first half, for the guys more than for me. The seven seniors wanted to get back to the state final.”
Next year The Panthers should be right back in the title hunt in 2012. “We have some good kids coming back and some good eighth graders coming through,” Keen said. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @foresports.

NYA was shellshocked. “It was a very disappointing start, just what you don’t want,” said Keen. “Two goals almost replicated. That’s not allowed to happen. When it does happen you pay and we paid.” If that wasn’t frustrating enough for the visitors, what transpired with 10:47 remaining left them shaking their head in disbelief. After a goal kick from Panthers senior Ryan Salerno was short, Knoth bounced on the loose ball left one defender in his wake with a gorgeous individual move,

Out & About
‘August: Osage County’ is powerful drama By Scott Andrews One of the most powerful stage dramas in recent years was Tracy Letts’ “August: Osage County,” which opened on Broadway in 2007 and ran a year and a half – a remarkable performance for a straight play. When Good Theater presented its Maine premiere last fall, it broke all of the company’s attendance records, and many would-be attendees had to be turned away. So it’s no surprise that artistic director Brian P. Allen decided to bring it back for the 2011-2012 season. And equally remarkably, he’s got 12 of the 13 actors he had last year. “August: Osage County” runs through Nov. 20 at the top of Munjoy Hill in Portland. Two miles west on Congress Street, One Longfellow Square has an interesting lineup of shows. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Leon Redbone appears on Friday. The James Montgomery Blues Band takes the stage on Saturday and David Peterson’s Old Time Country Revue is featured on Tuesday.
‘August: Osage County’ One of the most powerful American plays in recent decades is Tracy Letts’ “August: Osage County,” a darkly comedic drama about the disintegration, implosion and self-destruction of three generations of a Midwestern family. The playwright is a member of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Company, which first produced the script in 2006. When it transferred to Broadway in 2007, “August: Osage County” won both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. (It also won four other Tonys.) Good Theater produced the Maine premiere last fall, and it was a sensational success, topping all attendance records in the company’s history. It’s back for Good Theater’s 2011-2012 season, and its just a powerful as it was last year. “August: Osage County” is a sprawling play with a cast of 13 and a huge set. The original production recreated a three-story house; Good Theater’s set, designed by Steve Underwood, spills out of its available space in all dimensions. Although the formal time span covers only a few weeks, the play extensively revisits longpast episodes in the lives of the characters, giving the impression that decades roll by. Director Brian P. Allen has assembled a top-notch professional cast. The action mostly revolves around the confrontation of two bitterly opposed characters, an

aging woman and her middle-age daughter. The drama begins when patriarch of the family – who describes himself as a “world-class alcoholic” – goes missing and the family gathers at the homestead in rural Oklahoma. The first act concludes with the sheriff announcing that his body has been found at the bottom of a local reservoir, an apparent suicide. The many conflicts that were set up in the first act reach a climax in the second, and an uneasy resolution is reached in the third. Both of the two principal women characters get bravura performances. Lisa Stathoplos is sensational as the 65-yearold matriarch of the family, a melancholy, strong-willed woman who is addicted to prescription drugs and possesses a razoredged tongue. She’s more than matched by Kathleen Kimball as the conflicted daughter who is vainly attempting to keep her own family together – her professor husband is having an affair with one of his college students – while she simultaneously tries to control her mother’s kith and kin. The language is at times very crude and the entire experience is an emotional roller-coaster. It has much the character of a multi-episode soap opera, as hidden secrets are revealed at regular intervals during the play’s three-hour-plus running time. Several secondary plots are interwoven throughout. Incest and adultery are involved, and each of the 13 characters has to work through his or her own set of demons. Most of them are unsuccessful. There’s a lot of humor involved, and Letts’ wry observations on many subjects add much to the theatrical experience. I’ve been attending Good Theater since its inception, and “August: Osage County” is definitely the most powerful drama the company has mounted. I was profoundly impressed by the 2010 production, and the current one is equally good – perhaps even improved in some of the finer points

One Longfellow Square One Longfellow Square, at the western extremity of Portland’s arts district, boasts a top-notch lineup of musicians over the next week. Two of the performers specialize in recreating old-time music and another is a band led by a harmonica player from Boston. Friday, Nov. 11: Leon Redbone has been touring his one-man vaudeville act
for 30-plus years and he’s recorded 15 albums. His specialty is recreating songs that were popular in the first half of the 20th century – music from the ragtime era, the Roaring Twenties, Great Depression and World War II. Accompanying himself on guitar – he’s a master of the finger picking style – Redbone provides an intimate, understated, low-key experience. His costume is part of his shtick: Panama hat, dark sunglasses, white coat, black trousers and black string tie. He’s got quite a legion of fans, including Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan. Saturday, Nov. 12: In 1970, while attending Boston University, James Montgomery formed the James Montgomery Band. His inimitable harmonica playing combined with his incredibly energetic live shows led to the band’s quick climb up the New England music scene ladder. Within two years, the James Montgomery Band was among the hottest acts in Boston – along with J. Geils and Aerosmith – and they were quickly signed to a multialbum deal with Capricorn Records. To date that’s resulted in six releases. Tuesday, Nov. 15: David Peterson once intended to enter the ministry, but he found his true calling in resurrecting and performing old-time country music. He is best known for forming 1946, a bluegrass band that was numerically named for the starting date of Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys, the genre’s seminal ensemble. His most recent project is the Old-Time Country Revue, which looks at Nashville music during the 1940s through 1960s, channeling long-ago Grand Ole Opry stars such as Hank Williams Sr. and Jimmy Rogers. One Longfellow Square is at the corner of Congress and State streets in downtown Portland. All performances are at 8 p.m. Call 761-1757.

SAD 51 from page 1
selectman from 2008-2011, Verrill said he has seen how many people struggle to pay their property taxes. “It led to some sleepless nights, I must admit,” he said. “I’m tender-hearted at the core, and that kind of stuff bothers me. What I hope to achieve from this is a significant reduction in property taxes for my fellow citizens, to improve the quality of our children’s education at a much lower cost, and third, to curb town growth to preserve our rural character.” If the town withdraws, Verrill said he would still like it to partner with Cumberland. He suggested that a K-5 school could be built in North Yarmouth to replace Memorial School, which was built in 1976. The town could then contract with Cumberland for middle and high school services. “If Cumberland doesn’t want to have anything to do with us after the ‘divorce,’ we could look at building a K-8 school here in North Yarmouth,” and then possibly send students to North Yarmouth Academy in Yarmouth, he said. Verrill said that according to 2009 statistics, Cumberland’s median annual household income was about $84,000, while North Yarmouth’s was just more than $61,000. “It’s a marriage I don’t feel that we can afford,” he said. “It’s like making $50,000 a year and being married to a wife who spends $200,000. You can’t afford that marriage.” “My biggest frustration with what’s gone on in SAD 51,” Verrill said, is that “I think they made a huge mistake trying to keep up with Yarmouth and Falmouth. ... They built an excellent educational system on the backs of just the property owners ... without the backing of significant commercial tax base. Those other communities have significant commercial tax base. ... That’s where the large revenue comes from.” He added that “North Yarmouth doesn’t have any potential for commercial growth, and Cumberland has limited potential for commercial growth. And the economy has

stalled, so what potential they have has stalled.” Sixty-six percent of students who live in the district are from Cumberland, while 34 percent live in North Yarmouth. Cumberland bears 71.3 percent of the school district tax assessment, and North Yarmouth bears 28.7 percent of the assessment. The petition for withdrawal is required to have at least 208 valid North Yarmouth signatures – 10 percent of the number of residents who voted in the last gubernatorial election. According to Maine Department of Education spokesman David ConnertyMarin, there is no time limit or deadline for the collection of signatures. After the required signatures are gathered, the question of whether to begin the withdrawal process would go to referendum in North Yarmouth and require a majority vote, Connerty-Marin said. If the referendum is approved, negotiations would begin between North Yarmouth and SAD 51. “That’s an especially hard part,” he said. “You’ve got assets, and you’ve got liabilities, and you have students who need to have a place to go to school, so there are lot of factors.” A negotiated withdrawal plan would then go back to North Yarmouth and require approval by two-thirds of voters, ConnertyMarin said. Such petitions are “rarely successful,” he said, “because the bar is pretty high.” Since SAD 51 predates Maine’s 2008 school district reorganization law, it is not constrained by a new law that prevents petitions for withdrawal from the more recently formed regional school units until the beginning of next year, Connerty-Marin said. He also said that if North Yarmouth secedes, SAD 51 will continue to exist. Jeanne Chadbourne, a former selectman and SAD 51 board member who signed the petition on Tuesday, said it’s important to discuss the issue. “Get it out on the table and (talking) about it, let people know, let them express their ideas and their opinions, and go with it from there,” she said.
Importance of Memorial School Verrill said part of his motivation is concern over the possible closure of North Yarmouth Memorial School and the financial impact that would have on the town. A task force is charged with making recommendations to the SAD 51 Board of Directors about the future of the school. The task force chairman, Mark Girard of North Yarmouth, said last week that the group has met once and is far from a consensus on any recommendation. Verrill said he expects the task force to ultimately recommend the school be closed, and for “the School Board to vote and follow that lead. Then I expect it will go out to the voters of Cumberland and North Yarmouth in June, and I expect that that school will be closed.” If the vote to close the school succeeds across the district, but a majority of North Yarmouth voters are opposed, the town will

be “stuck with the bill (for the building),” he said, “and that’s not fair.” Girard said that “what we have been and what we will be spending the early part of the discussion on is gathering information, and framing the discussion with that information.” That information includes the physical attributes of the school, and whether the building can be renovated or must be replaced. “If it does need to be replaced, is it replaced at that location, (or) at a different location?,” Girard said. The school is safe and usable, “but there are some long-term capital issues that are not getting better, that will simply get worse with the age of the building,” he said, including the ventilation and electrical systems. The task force will also look at enrollment and projections for the district, to determine what kind of capacity will be needed. It plans to have recommendations for the School Board by the end of this year or early next year. “We want to be thorough, we want to be deliberate,” SAD 51 Superintendent Robert Hasson said last week. “It is the only (school district) asset that’s in North Yarmouth. ... So we want to be sensitive to that.” Board of Selectmen Chairman Paul Napolitano said in a Nov. 4 press release that selectmen would be attending task force meetings “and reporting back to the town the direction and progress of the discussions. The public is welcome to attend all meetings and their input is welcome.” SAD 51 Chairman Jim Bailinson said Monday that “a very public process (is) underway to gather and weigh all the facts, and make a recommendation to the School Board. That task force has a majority of people from North Yarmouth.” The Cumberland resident added that “I’m aware of no complaints from North Yarmouth about the 40-plus year partnership between the two communities. We’re very proud of the education we’re offering the students of both the communities. We’re one of the top districts in the state, so it’s a shame if these discussions about secession distract us from the very serious work we’re doing in both communities to strengthen and advance the education we’re providing our kids.” Cumberland Town Manager Bill Shane, who dealt with a community withdrawal when Chebeague Island seceded from Cumberland in 2007, said the process can be stressful and emotional. “I know how difficult it was for the elected officials here to have gone through that with Chebeague,” Shane said last week. “... It all started on Chebeague Island with the same issue. (SAD 51 was) looking at budgetary savings, and one of the savings was to close the school on Chebeague Island. “The difficulty is that North Yarmouth residents are going to have to weigh ... the value of that education from SAD 51,” he said. “My two sons basically went from kindergarten through high school there, and they got a private education at a public school price.” Shane called Verrill “a decent guy,” and noted that they have worked together on several committees. “I respect Mark’s opinion, it is his opinion, and if he can get folks to follow him, then more power to him,” the Cumberland manager said. “But I think it’s a long process.” Alex Lear can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 113 or email@example.com.

to be a part of the civic dialog. Arno said she was delighted by the win and is looking forward to representing District 2. “I appreciate the support of those who voted for me, and I am committed to doing the hard work it takes to serve,” she said. Egan said she “can’t wait to get to work.” On Wednesday morning, Migliaccio sarcastically said he is looking forward to seeing Egan deliver on the campaign promises she made. “Kristina knocked on many doors and had a good team of supporters behind her including Alan Caron, members of the Freeport Economic Development Corp., and the president of the Freeport Chamber of Commerce,” he said. “It’s been an honor (to serve) and the family, the supporters and the kids are disappointed.” Of Freeport’s 6,000 registered voters, more than 3,000 went to the polls. Town Clerk Beverly Curry said there were about 535 absentee ballots cast and a steady stream of people at the polls all day.
Regional School Unit 5
Incumbents Nelson Larkins of Shore Drive and Beth Parker of Spar Cove Road were re-elected to their seats on the RSU 5 Board of Directors. Parker received 1,842 votes; Larkins had 1,351 and Gurdarshan Gill had 1,196 votes. Gill, of Palmer Point Road, said she had a “good run.” She said she will continue to be involved in the schools, especially in her role as the program coordinator for the Greater Freeport Family Literacy Program. “Even though I didn’t win, it got a conversation going,” Gill said. “There is a lot that needs to be done in the school district.” Parker, 50, has served on the Freeport and RSU 5 boards for six years. She owns the Pet Pantry with her husband and has two children in the school system. “I’m glad I am on the board again,” Parker said. “I feel like my job was not complete and I want to see this through.” Larkins, 50, is a partner in the Prehti Flaherty law firm in Portland. He said he is pleased to serve another three years on the board. “I am looking forward to reinvigorating myself,” he said. “We made it over the first hurdle with getting the school (unit) up and running and now we are starting to see some of the plans through.”
Sewer, water districts
In uncontested races for two seats on the Sewer District Board of Trustees and one seat on the Water District Board of Trustees, three incumbents were reelected. Incumbents Mike Ashby of Cove Road and Timothy P. Whitacre of Sandy Beach Drive will serve three year terms on the Sewer board. Ashby received 2,026 votes and Whitacre received 1,961 votes. Incumbent Edmond Theriault of Litchfield Road won the uncontested race for a seat on the Water District and received 1,978 votes. He will serve another three year term.

Civic Center from page 1 Center Board of Trustees Chairman Neal Pratt said Tuesday night. He said the outcome made it clear voters believe the Civic Center is well managed and will continue to be an economic engine for the region. “It’s a resounding vote in favor of those principals,” he said. As expected, greater Portland voters generally supported the bond, while voters from outlying county towns were not as enthusiastic. In Portland, the bond was approved by a 2 to 1 margin, 12,732 to 6,493, in unofficial results. Voters approved the measure 2,499 to 1,466 in Falmouth, 1,644 to 1,105 in Cumberland, 1,688 to 1,336 in Freeport, 1,992 to 1,186 in Yarmouth, 658-616 in North Yarmouth, 3,537 to 2,252 in Brunswick, 1,095 to 921 in Harpswell, 2,419 to 1,160 in Cape Elizabeth, 4,314 to 2,944 in Scarborough, and 4,322 to 2,642 in South Portland in unofficial results Tuesday night. In New Gloucester, however, the referendum lost 899-727, and in Harrison it lost 527-284. It also narrowly lost in Windham, 2,292 to 2,170, and Standish, 1,280 to 1,217.
In Gray, the bond was approved by a razor-thin margin, 1,166 to 1,152. It was also approved in Gorham. The 34-year-old Civic Center on Spring Street in Portland hosts concerts, shows, conferences and the Portland Pirates professional hockey team. Pirates owner Brian Petrovek has said the team will sign a 10-year lease for use of the Civic Center if the bond passed. Pratt said lease negotiations will begin as soon as possible. The Civic Center board will now begin the process of choosing an architect. Construction is expected to begin next summer. The total cost of the 25-year bond, including interest, has been estimated at $55 million. The bond will pay for improvements, including new seats, wheelchair-accessible seating, additional restrooms and concourse space, improved backstage areas, club seating, a new loading dock and external facade improvements. There will be approximately the same number of seats after renovation as there are now – 7,500 for concerts, 6,800 fixed. The Civic Center has been losing money for the past few years, which proponents of the bond said was because of the current state of the building. Trustees said the improvements will be paid for

by the additional revenue generated by the updated building. Opponents, however, said taxpayers should not be asked to pay for an entertainment center when people are struggling to pay their own bills, and questioned whether the additional revenue would be enough to cover the repairs. “Now we need to hold county and Civic Center officials accountable for delivering the many benefits they promised voters in exchange for our $55 million,” said Portland attorney Dave Canarie, who opposed the bond. There was no organized opposition to the referendum, and Canarie said those individuals who openly opposed the bond were up against a financially wellsupported organization. “Proponents of the bond had a massive campaign war chest and used it very effectively,” he said. At the polls Tuesday voters were mixed
in their thoughts on the bond. “It’s a lot of money, but that place is a dump,” said Portland resident Sandie Barr, who supported the bond. However, in Falmouth, where turnout was higher than expected, voters were not as quick to support the Civic Center. “I think the Civic Center would be better suited to be outside of the downtown area,” said Falmouth Town Councilor Will Armitage. “And it seems like a lot of money.” He said he did not support the bond. Krista Riccioni, who brought her two young children, Grace and Ryan, to vote with her, said she didn’t mind voting yes to support the Civic Center bond. But her daughter, Grace, was particularly interested in the two casino questions on the ballot. “I don’t think gambling is right,” she said. “People want to get money, but they just lose money.” Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or email@example.com.

Hunneman said even though the center is in the high school, it belongs to the community. Taxpayers approved a $3 million bond to have it built, she said, and it should be a place for community musical events, theater and dance performances. “The fine arts do not have to stop at Portland,” Hunneman said. The Nov. 19 event is $12 per person and $10 for seniors. There are special online ticket deals for students and arts organizations.

but NNERPA maintained was impractical. “I think there’s still hope that they could choose the better site of the two,” she said. But Quinn said that in spite of the delay, the chosen site, between Church Road and Stanwood Street, is the only one under consideration. “The Crooker site is not an option,” she said in an email. Quinn said the NNEPRA board is committed to finding the funding to make the project happen. “Every passing day we realize the importance of the facility being there,” she said. “The longer the facility is not in Brunswick will only constrain the service for the entire corridor.”
comment on the lawsuit. In the past, Carroll has stopped short of saying smart meters are safe, and has emphasized that it is not CMP’s job to test the safety of the meters, deferring that decision to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other experts. The Maine Center for Disease Control previously stated that it did not find “any consistent or convincing evidence to support a concern for health effects related to the use of radiofrequency in the range of frequencies and power used by smart meters.” That statement came before the World Health Organization this year added radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices, such as smart meters, as a possible carcinogen.

Rob Wood said last month. He noted that since then, the size of North Yarmouth has doubled. “We still have the administrative assistant-selectmen form of government, which many people think works, but some people don’t,” he said. “And it’s a structure which requires major decisions to be made once a year, which has tied our hands.” The town manager-town council system, such as in neighboring Cumberland, would be an alternative form of government. While that format would allow the council to make immediate decisions, it would eliminate Town Meeting. The commission’s members will be elected next June. That panel will review the charter over a period of about 18 months, and any recommendations for change will eventually go to Town Meeting. There were 1,375 ballots cast in the referendum, or 47 percent of eligible voters.

Gorden secured leads of 2,487 to 1,506 in Brunswick, 861-470 in Harpswell and 1,556 to 643 in Freeport. “The voters are fortunate to have two qualified candidates,” Grover said earlier on Tuesday. “The public will be wellserved by whoever wins.” Both Gorden and Grover opposed Tuesday’s Cumberland County referendum question, which asked whether up to $33 million should be borrowed to renovate the Cumberland County Civic

He has served as national vice president of corporate development for the American Water Works Service Co. as well as president of American Water Resource, both in New Jersey. He was also director and chief executive officer of the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department in Michigan, director of operations for the Portland Water District, and chairman of the National Water Utility Association.
