Portland brewery hopping up to Freeport By Will Graff FREEPORT — A Portland microbrewer hopes to move into an expanded brewery next spring on Route 1 in Freeport. Maine Beer Co., started in 2009 by brothers David and Daniel Kleban, will almost double its production at the new brewery on the site of the old Dutch Village Motel, near Exit 20 of Interstate 295. In addition to increasing production, the brothers plan to add a tasting room that will seat about 25 people, David Kleban said. “Right now, (a tasting room) doesn’t really work,” he said Tuesday, at their Portland brewery off Forest Avenue, pointing out that the current tasting room is the size of a small office and abuts the noisy brewery. “(The new room) is just there for people that want to learn more about our beer, or who already know about it, to come check out our digs. We’ll probably have a few beers that aren’t for sale elsewhere. For our loyal followers, we’ll have something a little different.” The existing brewery produces 3,000 barrels of beer a year, or about 58,000 12-bottle cases. With the

Falmouth restricts size of Route 1 businesses By Amber Cronin FALMOUTH — The Town Council on Monday unanimously approved a footprint limit for businesses in the Route 1 commercial district. The vote put an end to four months of negotiations and council debate over limits on the size of businesses along Route 1. Councilor Bonny Rodden said establishing a maximum footprint is the first step in planning the future of Falmouth and Route 1. “With a vote tonight the council will take a major step in defining the character of our town,” she said Monday night. “(With the vote) we are saying Falmouth is a community that thrives on small business and a walkable environment for residents. With this vote we are giving parameters to the business community.” Against the wishes of many business owners and advocates, who said setting a limit puts unnecessary constraints on businesses, councilors set groundfloor tenant footprint limits of 50,000 square feet for new construction and 60,000 square feet for existing nonconforming See page 26

for the Dec. 4 special council election and acting on tax two items, councilors zeroed in on the Maine Department of Environmental Protection’s permit requirement for the sports fields on Hunter and Pownal roads, west of Interstate 295. Town Engineer Albert Presgraves and environmental consultant Al Palmer, of Gorrill-Palmer Consulting Engineers, reviewed where the town stands in the permitting process and noted that the cost of the permit has increased to an estimated $270,000, dramatically higher than earlier estimates of $40,000.

of development, forcing the permitting process for the entire parcel. “We don’t see any signs of too high runoff into the streams. From a quantity standpoint, there’s no issue.” Historically, DEP has not given any relief for permitting this kind of project even though no water quality problem exists, Palmer said, noting that this has continued page 26

Palmer said that although DEP is requiring the permit, his review of the property has not revealed any problems with storm-water runoff from the fields. “The law (that prompts the review) was not written to address this kind of project,” Palmer said, noting that, although the town is only planning to develop a small portion of the land, the fields are considered part of a common scheme

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE TOWN OF FALMOUTH The Town of Falmouth will hold a public hearing on Monday, Dec. 10, 2012 at the Falmouth Town Hall, Council Chambers at 7:00 pm.

Drink, drive, go to jail! That is the current mantra of The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ( NHTSA). The old ad campaign had the number .08 with a circle and a red slash. Some of us are old enough to remember the days when the standard Maine Driver’s License had a chart on the back with a “green” zone and a “red” zone purporting to advise us about how much was too much and how much was just enough to drink and be okay to drive. That chart was also prominently displayed in poster form on the walls of Maine’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles registries. Although the message has changed, the law has not. It is not against the law to drink and drive in our state. It is against the law to drive while under the influence of alcohol (and/or drugs). A person is legally under the influence if his breath-alcohol concentration is 0.08 per cent or higher OR his mental or physical faculties or impaired to the slightest degree. If you do chose to drink and drive, you should follow the advice given in many other ads: Always drink responsibly. Use good judgment. Set a limit and stick to it. Police will be cracking down with extra patrols and roadblocks during this holiday season.

“The thought is to keep this unique branding going, and the history of the property, but like every family business, it’s a struggle,” Sweetser said, pointing out that the orchard has been more a hobby for him and his 86-year-old father – both have had careers elsewhere. “It’s a great retirement job,” the 58-year-old said, noting that the family is experiencing a “generational squeeze,

where the older generation is aging ... and I’m still in my career, so it’s a balance.” Sweetser, executive director of the Ski Maine Association, said the business has employed a manager for the past two years, the first time it has done so. He and his family moved back to Cumberland from Rangeley in 1996, in order to help sustain the orchard. “It’s been nice to live in the homestead,” he said, “because ... we’re able to ... renovate the place, and prepare it for the next generation. You never know what the next generation is going to do, but at least we’ll have (the house) in a sustained position.” Since the orchard has become a hobby, it’s not something his sons are yet ready to undertake, Sweetser said, adding that it’s hard to predict their long-term interest. “The future’s hard to say, and that’s always another challenge of family businesses ... how to transition to the next generation,” he said. “But I have a good long life ahead of me, so we know that things will be stable for a number of years ahead.”

By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, then two centuries’ worth would have to make you the picture of health. Sweetser’s Apple Barrel & Orchards goes back that far, spanning several generations of a family that has combined hard work with a hobby that’s never lost its luster. It was in 1812 – the year the United States went to war a second time with Great Britain, and “Father of the Constitution” James Madison was elected to a second term as president – that a family homestead was built on Blanchard Road for Hannah Pittee. The orchard’s story begins there, although it wasn’t until the late 1830s that the first trees were planted on the 14-acre property, according to Greg Sweetser. It was Sweetser’s great-great-grandfather, Samuel Robinson Sweetser, who married Pittee’s daughter, Mary Jane, and started the orchard. “Like every homestead that was built (at the time), everybody had a farm,” Greg Sweetser said last week. “So they had animals and agriculture. But Sam really was the one that got the orchards going. ... Apples became really the mainstay of the property; they’re the one consistent product that’s been produced here.” Samuel Sweetser’s son, Frederick, tried his hand at a meat business along with the orchard, a venture that had some success in the early 20th century. But when federal food and drug laws called for refrigeration of the product during transportation, and the business’s transportation was limited to horses and wagons or sleds to reach Portland stores, that part of the operation folded. The 1812 house still stands, with an ell built in 1850, and it has housed subsequent generations of Sweetsers, including Greg and his wife, Deborah, and their sons Samuel and Eben, who attend college in Utah. Greg runs the orchard with his parents, Dick and Connie Sweetser, who live in another house on the property. Also on the property – which has about 1,100 apple-bearing trees – is a roadside stand, where the business sells its products from August through November. Seventy of the orchard’s trees are more than 150 years old, and while they aren’t as efficient at bearing fruit as younger ones, they remain beautiful and classic, Sweetser said. Some of the apple varieties that Samuel Sweetser planted are no longer available, including Jewett’s Fine Red, Benoni and

Freeport aids Freeport: Students coordinate post-Sandy relief
By Will Graff FREEPORT — A local high school student is leading a drive to deliver new school supplies to students in Freeport, N.Y., where a school was closed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy last month. Senior Abigial Smith is organizing the effort, called Freeport to Freeport, with the Interact Club at Freeport High School. The donations will be sent to Giblyn Elementary School on Long Island, N.Y., which was flooded with more than six inches of water, ruining school supplies, infrastructure and dozens of musical instruments, said Freeport Schools Superintendent Kishore Kuncham. The more than 550 students at the school are now attending classes at four neighboring schools. Their school is expected to reopen Dec. 10, Kunchman said, noting that although the elementary school was not damaged as severely as some of the other Long Island schools, he estimates the cost of the damage to be more than $1.5 million. Smith said she began organizing with one of the Interact Club advisers, Dede Bennell, after seeing the damage caused by the hurricane on TV. “I was watching the news and saw the damage caused by this disaster and how some people had lost everything,” she

said. “How are they going to go back to school without supplies? On Tuesday, Smith made a presentation to students at Freeport Middle School, and left a donation box at the school. Two eighth-grade students, Devon Wilbanks and Tyler Lowe, also set up a penny drive at the middle school to help raise money continued page 27 Abigial Smith, a senior at Freeport High School, gives a presentation to Freeport Middle School students during their lunch break about a relief effort for families affected by Hurricane Sandy in Freeport, N.Y., called Freeport to Freeport.

Falmouth bridge reopens for winter FALMOUTH — The Leighton Road bridge has reopened to traffic, almost a month after the planned October completion date. The Maine Turnpike Authority closed the bridge in September to complete repairs and modifications, including in-
creasing the clearance under the bridge for turnpike traffic, bridge deck replacement, concrete pier and abutment repairs, and joint replacements. According to a statement from the MTA, temporary pavement was put on the roadway so the bridge could be opened during the holidays and winter months. The bridge will have to be closed again for about one week in the spring to permanently pave the bridge, roadway approaches and nearby driveways.

Yarmouth teachers get national certification
YARMOUTH — Two high school art teachers have earned a national teaching certification. Holly Houston and Melissa Noack are the first teachers at Yarmouth High School to receive the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards certification. The certification requires teachers to submit a portfolio and three-hour assessment from the board. During the assessment, teachers must "demonstrate knowledge from their content area, a commitment to student learning, developed pedagogical skills and dedication to their profession," according to a press release from the School Department. They join about 100,000 other teachers who have been certified since 1987.

Graham thanks District 109 voters Thank you to the people of Gray, North Yarmouth and Pownal for hiring me for two more years to represent House District 109 in Augusta. I thank Susan Austin for her gracious congratulations. Sue has served the people of Gray for eight years at the Statehouse and countless years as a member of the community. She deserves thanks and praise for her hard work and devotion. Thank you to my wonderful friends who drove me to doors, made phone calls on my behalf and wrote positive supportive letters to the editor. Your kindness carried me through the many days of campaigning and I could not have won without you. I return to Augusta with a renewed commitment to work for the people of our community. I am a public servant and I will do my best to serve you well. Thank you for your votes. Now it is time to get to work. Rep. Anne P. Graham North Yarmouth
School counselor likes PossibilityU As a school counselor who relies on PossibilityU, I was surprised by the unbalanced article about the online college admissions services it offers. I wish the reporter had spoken with me or a family at Morse High School about how effective it is as part of the very intense and complicated college admissions process. We can all use an extra hand and expert advice with this major life milestone for our children, especially with the ever higher debt from pursuing a college degree. PossibilityU is an affordable and accessible item in the student’s (and family’s) higher education toolkit. It also struck me as odd that while PossibilityU is partnered with Pearson, the leading
educational publisher and PossibilityU was featured at a White House conference on education technology last month, neither of these items were mentioned. Our school learned about PossibilityU through MELMAC. After Betsy Peters presented this very fresh, informative product, I was sure it was out of our price range. But talking with Peters we were able to purchase every junior and senior a one-year account for under $10 per student. Although this is our first year using PossibilityU, we have already had very favorable reports from students and parents who have found it helpful. PossibilityU is a great additional resource for families and schools interested in helping kids make sound, personalized decision as they invest in their future. Leslie N. Trundy Morse High School Bath
Rail advocate clarifies long-term goal I’ve just seen Edgar Allen Beem’s piece “Riding the rails” and I believe he misunderstood my emphasis on one point. He writes, referring to me, that “... His own new vision is for a second passenger line out of Maine through Worcester and Providence to New York City, etc.” A through train between Portland and New York over the original State of Maine Express has been part of TrainRiders/Northeast’s original goals and objectives created by its board of directors in 1989. It is not a new idea and certainly not my “... own new vision ... .” I do remember saying to Mr. Beem that “personally I’d like to see that goal completed before I move on ...,” but to refer to it as a new idea and my own personal idea is simply not correct.

American Legion thanks Yarmouth donors
Post No. 91 of the American Legion in Yarmouth would like to thank all those that made our 2012 Veterans Turkey Drive on Nov. 20 a big success. We started with a tremendous gift from Hannaford Bros. in Yarmouth, and would like to thank store manager Mike Dawes. We received a major contribution from the Royal River Post of the VFW, and numerous members of our post, plus area residents and local church members were very generous. Our previous record three years ago was 70 turkeys and $700 cash and gift cards, and while the 29 turkeys we collected didn't break the record, the $965 in cash and gift cards shattered the old mark. We made deliveries of turkeys and cash to local food banks in Yarmouth and the new food bank in Cumberland/North Yarmouth, and a large donation to Wayside Rescue Mission in Portland. The best feeling is helping to provide Thanksgiving dinners to many families in need, and second is the joy in giving shown by area residents and veterans. As one of our members said with a smile as he unloaded three 15-pound turkeys from his car, "I've been blessed so I want to help three other families." We hope to be back in action for Thanksgiving 2013 and strive to collect more turkeys and donations for area food banks. Bert Kendall, commander Post No. 91 Yarmouth

PATHS produces a bountiful ‘harvest’
Dysfunction is all in the (American) family Mercifully, election season has come to an end. Families from coast to coast bowed their heads in gratitude as they gathered at their Thanksgiving tables last week. Successful candidates will now transition from the gaudy brutality of the campaign trail to the formidable, if less colorful, task of governing. The presiGlobal dent and Congress can now confront in earnest a sluggish economy, mounting debt, the socalled fiscal cliff, two wars (more or less), an ever-volatile Middle East, immigration and climate change. Of course, the media pundits have already transitioned, moving seamlessly from preand post-election polls Perry B. Newman to the partisan debt negotiations, to diplomatic crises, and, inevitably, to the alternate universe inhabited by the political and military elite and their slightly unhinged admirers. It would all be rather disheartening if we didn’t have several centuries of experience dealing with the political lurches and oscillations of this country. Winston Churchill famously observed that Americans can always be counted upon to do the right thing, after having exhausted every other possibility; in other words, it won’t be pretty, but America and Americans will always get to where we need to be in the end. The knowledge, or at least the confidence, that we will, after all, be fine brings to mind one of those memes that makes its way around the Internet from time to time in which the writer says, “When I die, no gentle passing for me. I want to arrive at Heaven’s Gate in a cloud of dust amid squealing brakes, battered and bruised, winded and spent, with a bonehead smile on my face, saying, ‘Man, what a ride!’” In fact, that’s a bit what it’s like to be an American these days. The tortuous path to passage of the Affordable Care Act was characterized by fractious argument and demagoguery all the way to the Supreme Court, and thereafter by months of public handwringing. In the end, most of the law was upheld, and most states and employers have simply set about the business of complying. In September, the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was overrun and four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, died. Initial reports attributed the deaths to a spontaneous uprising of angry Libyans reacting to an incendiary, if childish, anti-Islamic video. Some smell a cover-up, however, and are questioning
KIDS FIRST PROGRAM FOR
(Saturday 12/8/12 8:30-12:30)
4-hour workshop designed to help parents in stepfamilies understand the normal transitions experienced by each person in the new family
the competence, veracity and integrity of everyone from the president to UN Ambassador Susan Rice to former CIA Director David Petraeus. Experience tells us, however, that after a few weeks of very public accusation and castigation, this tragic incident will take its place alongside many others in which dedicated public servants have perished, owing to failure to act, failure to fund, failure to protect, failure to heed, and so on. The truth will out, blame will be apportioned and we will move on. In fact, America’s political excesses seem only to become crises when they are fomented into a sine wave of peaks and valleys as part of the media’s relentless quest for headlines and ratings. When there is no actual crisis, one must be created. When there is nothing new to report, what has been reported must be repeated, at higher volume. The overarching goal may be to inform, but delivering popular outrage and higher ratings is essential. No surprise, then, that another meme making the rounds is that our politics, if not our system of government, is broken. As proof of our national dysfunction we are reminded that the cost of presidential and congressional campaigns this year will approach $6 billion. Cue the hysteria. Six billion dollars is real money, but, just for comparison sake, we should note that in 2011 Americans also spent $10 billion on romance novels, $7 billion on Halloween, and $2.2 billion on tattoos. Obviously we should be concerned about the influence of money in politics, but perhaps this election showed that somehow or other, our cumbersome, nasty, ugly and fractious sausage factory of a system worked. Many, if not most, who spent a fortune to sway the results failed to achieve their objectives. In the end, Americans voted, elected their candidates, and accepted the outcomes. Thus we move on. So let’s take a deep breath. Whatever the challenge, whatever the crisis, we know that getting through it won’t be pretty, yet we will find a way to get it done. This country is like one of those crazy families that screams at one another around the holiday table, but somehow still considers itself a family. As Warren Buffett said, however, it has never paid to bet against America. Our current crisis notwithstanding, I wouldn’t start now. Perry B. Newman is a South Portland resident and president of Atlantica Group, an international business consulting firm based in Portland, with clients in North America, Israel and Europe. He is also chairman of the Maine District Export Council. His website is perrybnewman.com/. Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/143427
participants will learn: ways to ease the transition process • appropriate • boundaries • how to have your needs met • ways to feel comfortable in your new roles
If you’re just tuning in, Portland Arts and Technical High School is an under-appreciated local institution dedicated to finding and creating appropriate holes for some of the less round pegs, including my daughter, in area high schools. I ’ve w r i t t e n a b o u t The View PATHS recently and feel a bit sheepish about revisiting it so soon, but my experience at the recent Thanksgiving brunch (called a “harvest meal,” for legal reasons, no doubt) put on by the food program there resonated too strongly. I hope I’m not singling out one school and one program in that school simply because Elizabeth is a student. In my defense, PATHS impressed Mike Langworthy me quite by accident before she even started there. I stopped off at a nearby Starbucks on my way to the chiropractor – yeah, I’m pretty much a jet-setter – and noticed a striking collage of commercial art. I thought it was a corporate commission, and literally did not believe the person who told me it was a collection of student work from PATHS. (Incidentally, baristas are less enthusiastic about being called liars than you would think. In case you are ever tempted to do that.) The brunch is food for us and a series of assignments to the kids. They are getting restaurant training, including working with the public. The first person we met was Elizabeth’s classmate, Michael. I usually only see Michael when I drop Elizabeth off at Scarborough High School, pacing the sidewalk, seemingly in his own world until she gets out of the car. He checks the traffic and waves her across the street, half traffic cop, half protective big brother, then goes back to his solitary pacing. At the harvest meal, he was a shy but gracious host, saying, “Hello, Mrs. Langworthy, and you must be Elizabeth’s father.” Well rehearsed, well delivered. A moment later Elizabeth started to run toward us, caught herself, slowed down and also greeted us like a good restaurant host. I was impressed and touched. Impressed and touched became the emotions of the morning. After Elizabeth stopped me from going in the wrong door – because suddenly “rules” matter – she ushered us to the cafeteria entrance, still gracious, still accompanied by Michael, our other personal greeter. I was just beginning to wonder what kind of Prussian regime must have been required to instill so much responsibility so quickly when the cafeteria door opened and Mr. Divinsky, the head of the program, stepped into the hall. “Welcome to our Harvest Meal!” He beamed. I laughed. Mr. D., as apparently every-

From Away from previous page body in the world but me calls him, wore a chef’s hat shaped like a cooked turkey. The drumsticks were on top like horns. A bold statement, meeting your students’ parents with your head up a turkey’s butt. (I don’t know: maybe he has political aspirations. Start with a turkey’s butt and work your way up the food chain until you’re ready to run for Congress.) In any case, the visual killed my theory of a rigid authoritarian classroom. I got my plate from a girl who was given that job to encourage her to be more outgoing (it was Elizabeth’s job, too). Down syndrome, autism, physical and developmental disabilities were all represented on the line. A different student served each dish. Behind the servers were the teachers – encouraging, reinforcing, praising and somehow finding time to exchange pleasantries with parents. They were a well-oiled food-service machine. I think the only time the line slowed down was when I stopped to deal with my sensory overload. Fortunately, Elizabeth and Carol kept me moving; these same kids had to serve the rest of the school. When you know how much energy it takes for one special needs child to meet his or her challenges, it can be overwhelming to see a group of kids with a broad range of developmental issues work together to accomplish a common goal. It is more poignant when that goal is to serve the people who spend so much time serving them. Seeing their concentration, and their pride when it comes together, can be almost too much to bear. Or maybe it was just me. All I know is waves of emotion broke over me as I went down the service line. The food was a pleasant surprise, by the way. It didn’t top the food I remember from Thanksgiving at my grandparents’ house, but it was good, and it was a lot better for me. I grew up in the Midwest, where butter is a spice. Also, I did not have to eat with my extended family, whose guiding principle seemed to be that arguments come and go, but resentment is forever. So we always ate our turkey with a side of thinly veiled hostility and a big bowl of tension for dessert. The dynamic at PATHS was different. For one thing, everybody seemed to want to be there. Also, the kids generally seemed to feel pretty good about themselves. My mind has gone back to that “harvest meal” several times in the last week or so, and it always makes me smile. So to everybody associated with the event, and especially to the kids, I offer my sincerest “harvest.” Mike Langworthy, an attorney, former stand-up comic and longtime television writer, now lives in Scarborough and is fascinated by all things Maine.

Democracy for sale In the two years since the conservative ideologues on the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Citizens United that corporations should be free to spend as much money as they want on U.S. elections, we have seen the predicted flood of ill-gotten gain pour into our democracy like Sandy into Jersey. Just imagine what we could have done with the estimated $6 billion to $8 billion wasted on political pornography in 2012. The Universal The good news is that the filthy lucre of the U.S. Chamber and Super PACs generally did not sway the outcome of elections. Close to $11 million was spent on Maine’s U.S. Senate race, for instance, and the numbers at the polls were the same as they were when the candidates announced – Angus King by a landslide, Charlie Summers with Edgar Allen Beem the hardcore GOP 30 percent and Cynthia Dill in the teens. We were all, however, forced to endure crass lies, distortions and hyperbole for several months while corporate fat cats tried to buy our votes. Justice Samuel Alito recently defended the highly controversial Idiots United decision on the grounds that, unless all corporations were free to spend unlimited amounts of money on elections, only media corporations would have free speech. Leave it to a conservative to argue that allowing big corporations to buy American elections is the American way. For most of my life, from 1949 to 1987, the U.S. had the Fairness Doctrine in place, requiring that holders of broadcast licenses present all sides of issues in a fair, honest and balanced way. There is still an Equal Time provision for political candidates. We used to know how to regulate the political marketplace. Now the quintet of court clowns who decided Citizens United, overturning more than a century of precedents, insist that money is free speech. Money is not speech and it certainly isn’t free speech. They also held that corporations are people. Only corporate stooges believe that. Never in a million years would the Founding Fathers, who conservatives are so fond of embracing (and misunderstanding), have contemplated granting the same rights to a legal entity that apply to
human beings. The Roberts Court is so wrong in so many ways, not the least of which being the American people’s complete loss of faith in the Supreme Court, that there are now several movements afoot to seek a constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United. Personally, I could support Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Saving American Democracy Amendment, which would amend the U.S. Constitution to make it clear that “1) Corporations are not persons with constitutional rights equal to real people, 2) Corporations are subject to regulation by the people, 3) Corporations may not make campaign contributions or any election expenditures, and 4) Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances.” This makes so much common sense that there is no way it is ever going to be ratified by three-fourths of the states. The more likely scenario is that Obamaappointed justices will eventually reverse Citizens United. Neither corporations nor unions should be allowed to contribute to candidates or elections. In the meantime, we have to put up with shadowy cabals pumping obscene amounts of money into state and national elections and delusional conservatives suppressing the vote and seeing phantom Black voters appear out of nowhere. It seems they just can’t believe that they couldn’t buy this election. Sorry, Mitt, but the truth is free and far more powerful than an expensive lie. If we are not going to enact meaningful campaign finance reform however, maybe it is time to put democracy up for sale. Republicans want to privatize everything anyway, so why not elections? Instead of corporate profits (made by exploiting workers, consumers and the environment) enriching television, radio and newspaper corporations with millions and billions in political advertising, maybe we should skip the middle men and let the money go straight to voters. My Selling American Democracy Amendment would state that 1) registered voters are free to sell their votes to the highest bidder and 2) whoever buys the most votes wins. At least that way there would be no pretense of democratic purity, and the American people would get the benefit of the corrupt dollars, not the very media outlets that should be exposing the financial rot at the heart of the American political system.

Greely swim star commits to Arkansas Greely senior swimming standout Sarah Easterling (joined by her father, Jeff, left, and Greely coach Rob Hale) signs her National Letter of Intent to attend and swim at the University of Arkansas during a ceremony Monday afternoon. Easterling is a reigning Class B state champion (and record holder) in the breaststroke and individual medley and was Greely’s Winter Female Athlete of the Year in 2010 and 2011. “I always wanted to go (Division I),” said Easterling, who’s undecided on a major, but expresses interest in sports science. “It’s really an exciting day. I went on two other recruiting trips, but Arkansas was definitely my favorite. They’re really good. Last week, they were ranked third out of all D1 swim schools. I’m not going to be the best swimmer. I’ll be in the middle, which is what I wanted. I wanted to go somewhere where I’ll be pushed.” “(Sarah’s) the best swimmer I’ve had, male or female,” said Hale. “The team is very proud of her. You can tell by the record board that things happen when she gets in the water. You take diving out and she has all but one of the swimming records. Her versatility is what drew colleges. She can do all the strokes. She has a sweet demeanor, but in the pool, she’s a tiger.” Michael hoffer / for The forecasTer

Out & About
Christmas at the Cathedral, Natalie MacMaster, more By Scott Andrews Musical offerings dominate this week’s top choices in the performing arts. Without doubt, the No. 1 pick for the weekend will be Christmas at the Cathedral. The Choral Art Society produces this concert, with four performances scheduled for Dec. 1-2 in Portland. Another big concert will be Natalie MacMaster’s Dec. 4 Christmas show at Merrill Auditorium. Best-known as a traditional Canadian fiddler who plays in the Cape Breton style, MacMaster adds a distinctively modern touch to her music. Two very unconventional groups are also performing in Portland. The Bob Band, a tribute act that performs the music of Bob Dylan, appears this Saturday at One Longfellow Square. The Bob Band is celebrating the 45th anniversary of the release of Dylan’s album “John Wesley Harding.” Cadillac Moon Ensemble will appear on the Portland String Quartet’s subscription series on Sunday. But don’t expect a traditional string quartet. Cadillac Moon Ensemble is an avant-garde group from New York that comprises violin, cello, flute and percussion.
Portland Ovations brings holiday cheer to Merrill Auditorium with its presentation of virtuoso Canadian fiddler Natalie MacMaster in a special Christmas show on Tuesday, Dec. 4. MacMaster will perform her holiday concert, titled “Christmas in Cape Breton,” which takes the audience on a musical sleigh ride through Nova Scotia by way of both traditional and contemporary Celtic melodies and Christmas carols. MacMaster brings boundless energy to her live performances with foot-tapping rave-ups, heartrending ballads and world-class step dancing. I’ve attended her concerts on several occasions, and she’s definitely one of the most vibrant performing artists I’ve ever seen. MacMaster has established herself as an electrifying performer across the world with a career spanning more than three-decades and amassing many awards including multiple gold albums, two Grammy nominations (with one win), a Juno Award, eight Canadian Country Music Awards and other accolades. (The Juno Award is Canada’s equivalent of the Grammy.) Portland Ovations presents Natalie MacMaster’s “Christmas in Cape Breton” at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 4. Call PortTix at 842-0800.
Christmas at the Cathedral If you are among the many traditionalists who are profoundly saddened by the blizzard of over-hyped, inyour-face commercialism that dominates contemporary Christmas celebrations, you should know that the perfect musical antidote is coming up this weekend. For a pleasing, harmonious and spiritual experience that is totally in keeping with the core concept of the season, attend the Choral Art Society’s 25th annual Christmas at the Cathedral. I’ve been going for about 10 years, and this outstanding concert has become my personal No. 1. Under the direction of Robert Russell, a longtime University of Southern Maine professor, the CAS offers a program that exalts the traditional music of the Advent season, augmented by modern works that are in total harmony with those traditions. Joined by the Portland Brass Quintet plus Dan Moore on the cathedral’s organ, CAS will perform a variety of traditional and modern Christmas music. This year’s guest artist is Suzanne Nance, a conservatory-trained operatic soprano who is best known for hosting the Maine Public Radio’s classical music show. To mark the 25th anniversary of Christmas at the Cathedral, the CAS has commissioned a new work for brass quintet and chorus from Boston Conservatory music

professor Kevin Siegfried. Each year’s concert includes the signature processional, “Personent Hodie,” an arrangement of a Renaissance tune for brass and organ. The concert concludes with “Silent Night” performed by singers holding lighted candles and encircling the hall. CAS has about 150 members. All singers are selected by audition; their goal is to enhance their personal musical experience and enrich the cultural life of southern Maine. In addition to their own slate of concerts, CAS performs a major work nearly every year with the Portland Symphony Orchestra. Four performances are planned this weekend at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 307 Congress St. in Portland: Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. and Dec. 2 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. In addition, a “special preview” concert will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1 at noon. Call 828-0043.
Three years ago, four guys from southern Maine and New Hampshire created a very unusual band that exclusively specializes in the music of the legendary singersongwriter Bob Dylan. Formed and fronted by Dennis Bailey, The Bob Band plays gigs around New England, often tailoring concerts around specific themes. Bailey, a passionate Dylan fan, believes in performing the singer’s entire opus, rather than simply concentrating on a concert’s worth of favorite hits. An example happens this Saturday in Portland, when The Bob Band will perform a tribute to the 45th anniversary of the release of Dylan’s seminal album, “John Wesley Harding,” a collection of original songs that marked a return to acoustic roots. The first half of The Bob Band’s concert will be the complete album. Its best-known song is “All Along the Watchtower.” The second half of the concert will include a sampling of Dylan’s work, which spans more than 50 years and multiple genres. Catch The Bob Band at 8 p.m. Dec. 1 at One Longfellow Square, corner of State and Congress in Portland. Call 761-1757.
Cadillac Moon Ensemble
Another musical event that’s utterly unrelated to Christmas and totally avant-garde is this Sunday’s concert by Cadillac Moon Ensemble, four exciting young New York artists who are playing on the Portland String Quartet’s subscription series. Two salient aspects of the Cadillac Moon Ensemble stand out in my mind. First is the very unconventional lineup: a violin, cello, flute and percussion. Because there is very little traditional music written for such a grouping of instruments, CME’s second claim to singularity is that virtually everything they play is written on commission. Formed in 2007, CME has commissioned more than 50 pieces. CME focuses on retaining the intimacy of chamber music while exploring a very different palette of sonic possibilities. The ensemble’s connection to the Portland String Quartet? Flutist Roberta Michel grew up in Maine and won the PSQ’s annual high school competition about a decade ago. Her prize for winning was performing on the subscription series. PSQ violist Julia Adams admires the way Michel has seamlessly transitioned from traditional classical repertoire to avant-garde. The pieces that will be played on this Sunday’s concert all revolve around the theme of movement: what things move, how things move and how they affect other things by their movement. Catch the Cadillac Moon Ensemble at 2 p.m. Dec. 2 at Woodford’s Congregational Church, 202 Woodford St. in Portland. Call the LARK Society at 761-1522.

happened before with fields on school campuses. Earlier this year the council had the choice to either pay for the permitting or divest their interest in the land and give it to Regional School Unit 5. In July, councilors voted 6-1 against transferring the land to RSU 5, saving the property for the town, but also obligating it to pay for the environmental permit. The town-owned land, adjacent to the Hedgehog Mountain recreation area and the town transfer station, is made up of two sections developed for athletic and recreational use, with an undeveloped center section. The portion of the property the town
voted to keep is a seven-acre section of a 60-acre parcel. The fields are already in use as athletic fields. The permitting process was triggered after town officials and Topsham-based soccer club Seacoast United signed an agreement to develop about 12 acres and lease three more acres of the center section for an indoor and outdoor athletic complex. The complex would have required state environmental review for a site permit. However, in late February, the council rejected a zoning change needed for the project to move forward. The council sought an extension at its July meeting and had hoped to become a state-sanctioned environmental protection delegate, giving the town permit-granting authority and the ability to conduct envi-

ronmental reviews at much lower costs. But the deadline to become a delegate for the project had already passed. Council Chairman Jim Hendricks Tuesday said he didn’t understand why a permit would not be needed if the town transferred ownership to RSU 5. “In my mind it’s a bad law, if that’s how it works,” he said. “It shouldn’t matter if you’re giving it to your brother, sister or your RSU. If there’s no change, it shouldn’t matter.” Other councilors echoed his concerns. Councilor Kate Arno said she did not want to move forward with the permit because of the cost. “I don’t believe we should pay $270,000 if we don’t have an environmental problem,” Arno said. “It would be different if we did, we want to do the right thing.” Although he said he is not promoting
Falmouth council from page 1 tenant spaces, like the former Shaw’s supermarket building in the Falmouth Shopping Center. The 60,000-square-foot limit on nonconforming spaces allows existing spaces to “square off” to make reconfiguring that space easier. Rodden said that although she would have preferred a smaller limit, the 50,000-square-foot limit will make a difference. “The towns that will be successful in the future are the ones that distinguish themselves from other municipalities in the state, and we are taking that step tonight,” she said. Council Chairwoman Faith Varney, who favored larger footprint limits, ultimately voted in support of the new ordinance. “We’ve come a long way,” Varney said. “I’m not sure I agree, but the way this council is going, I think that is the way we are going.” After the vote, Councilor Sean Ma-
the transfer, Councilor Rich DeGrandpre said it’s important that the town doesn’t remove the option of transferring or selling the land to avoid paying the permit fee, noting that large projects, like school renovations, are on the horizon. Palmer eventually said the town should set up a meeting with DEP to discuss the cost of the permit. In the likely event the town does have to move forward with the permitting, it should outline half a dozen development projects it wants to complete in the next 10 years, he said. In the end, the council instructed town staff to talk with DEP about getting some relief on the permit and agreed to put the item on an upcoming council agenda for action. The deadline for the decision on the permit is Jan. 15. Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @W_C_Graff.

honey said he hopes Town Manager Nathan Poore moves forward with a plan to work with business proponents and other interested residents on further changes to the Route 1 business district. “Addressing some of those issues is going to go a long way in moving toward walking the walk as far as what we mean for business,” he said. Winning over business owners could still be an uphill climb. Elizabeth Moss, owner of Elizabeth Moss Gallery, said she is disappointed in the council’s decision to approve any footprint limit. “I think the 50,000 has not killed, but has been a contributing factor to limiting potential new tenants,” Moss said Tuesday. “I don’t understand how it equates to being pro-business, when the entire business community tells you the zoning ordinance is going to have negative impact on the entire tenancy.” Amber Cronin can be reached at acronin@theforecaster. net or 781-3661 ext. 125.

Relief from page 7 for families in Freeport, N.Y. Smith and her peers are now asking for donations of basic schools supplies – notebooks, pencils, binders, backpacks, markers and art supplies. Donation boxes will be available at schools in Regional School Unit 5 and at the Freeport Community Center, which is partnering with the students. The Interact Club hopes to be able to get enough supplies to fill a van that will be driven to New York to deliver the donations, Smith said. The club is the youth arm of the Rotary Club International, which focuses on community service projects. Bennell, the service learning and aspirations coordinator at Freeport High School, said they plan to have the drive completed by Dec. 20, before winter break. The supplies will be delivered soon after the new year. “I think from the Freeport (N.Y.) community, the public schools and the board of education, we are deeply, deeply moved by this wonderful, kind and generous gesture from Freeport High School in Maine,” Kunchman said. “On behalf of all children and families we really thank Freeport High students and faculty and everyone who is involved.”
www.theforecaster.net The club not only wants to help the schools, but also the families, said Bennell, who has been in contact with Kunchman to determine the most urgent needs. “We’re shooting for both school and social needs,” she said. “We started out just thinking about school supply drive, but realized a lot of families had been displaced from their houses.” The club is also looking to partner with other groups for supplies or in-kind donations, such as helping with delivery, Bennell said. On Friday, the club will meet to delegate duties to its members and coordinate how the items will be picked up and delivered. “We want to get students engaged as much possible,” Bennell said, noting that some students could make cold calls to businesses for donations, while others might help coordinate logistics. “Our goal is to get really broad community support from the schools in the RSU to businesses and community organizations.” Smith, who is a ceramic sculptor and hopes to attend Unity College to study agriculture, said she hopes this effort will make life easier for families affected by the hurricane. “I hope a lot of these students will be able to go back to their school soon and return some normalcy to their lives,” she said. “This will be one less thing the
students and their parents will have to worry about.” Kunchman, who said their community has also received support from another Freeport in Illinois, hopes to continue the connection beyond this effort with the schools in Maine, suggesting that they could communicate via Skype when the students return to their school next
month. “I would like to hook-up remotely and exchange and take this opportunity to have something beyond this elementary school,” he said. “We want to continue our friendship and do something in the long-term from academic point of view.”

from page 1 expansion, Maine Beer will add four new fermenting tanks, which will boost production to 5,000 barrels per year, Kleban said. The brewery will join two other likeminded businesses on Route 1: Gritty McDuff’s brew pub, and Maine Distilleries, maker of Cold River vodka and gin. Known for its hoppy, American-style ales and off-size bottles, Maine Beer now sells beer in nine East Coast states, from New England to Washington, D.C. Kleban said their approach to making beer is driven by personal taste, rather than any particular style. “We brew beers we like to drink,” he said, noting that they don’t plan to make any significant changes with their expansion. “It’s just worked out that it’s been primarily hoppy, American-style ales. That’s the way it has played out for three years, and it’s worked, so why rock the boat?” With the new location, Kleban said they want to get involved with Freeport’s community culture and help sponsor walks and road races when they can.
“We hope to be at the starting line, or more likely, at the finish line,” he said. Kleban, his wife and brother moved to Maine from Michigan without jobs, because the wanted to live in the state, he said. About 10 years later, they opened the brewery. “We’ve lived in Maine for a decade now, so I guess we’re Mainers,” he said. “I think that’s the unwritten rule.” Although they enjoy the small brewers’ community they have in Portland, the brothers hope the move to a smaller town will allow them to connect more intimately with the community, something that’s difficult in their existing location, Kleban said. “Portland is great fun, but it’s easier to get lost,” he said, noting that their brewery is in an industrial park and about a 20-minute drive from downtown. “(In Portland) it’s kind of overwhelming for people and it’s hard to stand out. I hope in Freeport people get to know us as good guys making good beer.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter: @W_C_Graff.

BEST OF THE BEST
HOME INSTEAD SENIOR CARE IS LOOKING FOR THE BEST OF THE BEST.
RESPECTED & APPRECIATED If you are looking for meaningful part-time or full-time work, we’d love to speak with you. Comfort Keepers is a non-medical, in-home care agency that is dedicated to taking good care of those special people whom we call our caregivers. Quality care is our mission, hiring kind, compassionate, and dependable staff is our focus. Many of our wonderful Comfort Keepers have been with us for years because: • They have found an agency that they can count on to be there for them, all of the time, and that truly appreciates their hard work. • Some are retired and have embraced a wonderful way to stay busy. • Others have discovered a passion for being involved in end of life care. • All know that they belong to a caring, professional, and well respected agency.
Do you want to leave work knowing you’ve made a real difference in someone’s life? Are you the kind of dependable person who won’t let a perfect summer day (or a winter blizzard) keep you from work? Are you trustworthy enough to become part of someone’s family? We’re looking for natural born CAREGivers: women and men with the heart and mind to change an elder’s life. Call us today to inquire about joining the greatest team of non-medical in-home CAREGivers anywhere! Flexible part-time day, evening, overnight, weekday and weekend hours.
Experience is always helpful, but not necessary. Our ongoing training and support helps all of our caregivers to become skilled professionals. Please call us to find out more!
