Council closes replacement housing loophole

Hats off to the Class of 2011

Advocates seek pressure on hotel to keep rentals

It’s mortar boards into the air as the members of Deering High School’s Class of 2011 officially become graduates on June 1 at the Portland Expo. More photos from Deering, Portland and Casco Bay high schools, Pages 2, 6, 7.

By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The City Council on Monday closed a regulatory loophole that exempted the new owners of the Eastland Park Hotel from an ordinance intended to preserve affordable rental housing. The previous language left a broad exception to a rule that seeks to preserve affordable housing by charging hefty fees to developers who convert permanent housing into hotel rooms or other nonresidential uses. Developers who do not replace the housing must pay the city $50,000 per lost unit. Prior to Monday night’s action, an exemption was provided for “consolidation or elimination of dwelling units within an existing structure.” But that section was changed so it applied only to instances where the square footage of permanent living space was unchanged. Conversions to hotel and motel rooms may not be exempted. The loophole went unnoticed by the City See page 30

City owes $1M for easement, sells land for $2.3M By Randy Billings PORTLAND — What one hand gives, the other takes away. That was the tough lesson learned Monday by the City Council, which approved the sale of seven city-owned parcels in Bayside for $2.3 million, but had to shell out nearly $1 million for waterfront land seized

by eminent domain. The $967,000 settlement is the penultimate verdict in a nearly six-year legal battle between the city and the Portland Co. The legal wrangling will continue, since the city plans to

challenge more than $200,000 in interest included in the award this month by a Cumberland County Superior Court jury. According to a legal memo to the council, the city bought a triangular parcel north of Hancock, Hanover and Fore streets from

the Canadian National Railroad in 1993. That parcel, however, was encumbered by an 1865 rail easement held by the Portland Co. The city tried to reach an agreement to dissolve the easement, the location of which was

Portland police seek suspected West End arsonist Federal Street fire not related to 4 others reported early Monday By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Police are investigating a string of suspicious fires early Monday morning in the west side. Police Lt. Gary Rogers said four fires were reported within an hour of each other shortly after midnight in the Parkside and St. Johns Valley neighborhoods.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/91520

Police believe another overnight fire, in an apartment building on Federal Street in the East End, was unrelated. No one was injured and minimal damage resulted from the West End fires, Rogers said. “Fortunately, minor damage and no injuries,” he said. “But it’s obviously concerning. We consider it suspicious given the short time frame. And the locations are all in close proximity, so they’re connected. “

The first fire was reported at 12:14 a.m. at 143 Grant St. Residents reported that recycling bins were burning in the basement of an apartment building. Firefighters extinguished the blaze, which caused minor damage. About 15 minutes later a garbage bin fire was reported about a half-mile away at 52 Gilman St. Rogers said the bin was about 10 feet from the building, and no damage was reported. The third and most destructive fire was reported a block away at 242 Valley St. shortly after 12:30 a.m. Rogers said a 16-

3 Peaks Island residents arrested on drug charges in South Portland SOUTH PORTLAND — Three Portland residents have been arrested in South Portland on drug charges, the Maine Department of Public Safety said in a press release Monday afternoon. According to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, Goodson 31-year-old Justin Cram, 32-year-old Andrea Tuttle and 22-year-old Tannis Goodson, all of Peaks Island, were arrested Friday in the Cash Corner area after a monthlong investigaCram tion. Agents, with the help of South Portland police, seized a Range Rover and thousands of dollars in cash and drugs from the trio at around 5:30 p.m. at the corner of Broadway and Main Street. Tuttle DEA Special Agent Supervisor Kevin Cashman said agents set up a “buy-bust operation” to take the trio

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/91663

into custody. “We buy drugs and arrest them on the spot,” he said. Cram and Tuttle were reportedly sitting in the Range Rover in the Dairy Queen parking lot, while Goodson allegedly tried to sell drugs in the lot at the Irving gas station next door. Agents reportedly found 2.3 grams of suspected cocaine (with a street value of $200) on Goodson. Cram and Tuttle, his live-in girlfriend, were detained in the vehicle, where agents allegedly found a stash of other suspected drugs. Agents reported they found 9.9 grams of heroin (valued at $1,500), 23.5 grams of cocaine (valued at $2,300) and 114 Oxycodone 30mg pills (valued at $3,420). They said they seized $7,300 in cash. Cram was charged with three counts of unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs, while Tuttle and Goodson were charged with unlawful trafficking in cocaine. All three made their initial court appearance on Monday, and as of Monday afternoon were still being held at the Cumberland County Jail. Cram is being held on $25,000 cash bail; Tuttle is being held on $5,000 cash

to 20-foot boat was set ablaze, causing an estimated $5,000 in damage. About 20 minutes later, covering used during construction was reported on fire at 867 Congress St.. Rogers said that fire had burned out by the time crews were on the scene, resulting in “very minor” damage. Rogers said police are following leads from witness. He would not elaborate about whether that information pertained to a description of a person or a vehicle. Anyone with information is being asked to contact police at 874-8533. It’s not the first time police have investigated arson in the Parkside neighborhood. In April, 2008, more than a early morning fires were reported. Last February, Thomas Cassidy, a Portland man, who admitted to setting 15 cars on fire, pleaded guilty to 21 felony counts of arson and 11 counts of burglary of a motor vehicle, among others.

Layoffs likely after Ohio company buys Barber Foods By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Barber Foods, which has called Portland its home for more than 50 years, has been acquired by a Cincinnati-based company. AdvancePierre Foods announced June 1 it will continue to operate the Portland company’s production facility on St. John Street. Barber Foods President David Barber said AdvancePierre Foods plans on investing “more than a few million dollars” into the Portland plant. But that investment will result in the automation of some production, which means there will be a series of layoffs over the next year or so, Barber said. Barber said administration will eventually be merged with AdvancePierre Foods’ management, resulting in more job losses. “Unfortunately, this will result in some job loss over time,” Barber said. He said he did not know exactly how many jobs

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/91068

would ultimately be lost. The first round of layoffs at Barber, which employs about 650 people, will likely occur in September, he said. Workers who lose their jobs will be given 60 days notice, a severance package and offered a re-education opportunity. The acquisition is expected to significantly increase AdvancePierre’s retail business along the East Coast and in Canada, while maintaining the Barber Foods brand and local operations. Bill Toler, AdvancePierre Foods chief executive officer, said in a written state-

ment that the acquisition is part of the company’s strategy of buying highquality companies that compliment AdvanceFoods’s mission. “The high-quality products, top-notch manufacturing facility and family values of Barber Foods makes it an excellent addition to AdvancePierre,” Toler said. “We are very enthusiastic about what Barber brings to our existing and future retail, food service and convenience business, as well as opportunities to expand our presence through their East Coast location.” Barber Foods was started in 1955 by Gus Barber, who began with a butcher’s knife and a pick-up truck, according to

the company website. The company now operates a 150,000-square-foot plant. Although the founder passed away in 2008, the company has remained in the Barber family; Barber’s four children serve as owners and trustees. Barber said he and his sister, Julie, will remain with the company. U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, who has worked with Barber on federal issues, said she was pleased the company was able to keep its production facility in Portland. “The Barber family has been an

Lisa Green, crossing guard at the corner of Longfellow and Maine streets in Brunswick, has a wave or a smile for nearly everyone who passes. Her habit of wearing funny hats began when she was clipped by a car. “The guy (who hit me) kept saying that he didn’t see me, so I decided to start making it impossible to not see me,” she said.

Unsung Hero: Lisa Green, crossing-guard jester By David Treadwell BRUNSWICK — Just who is that crazy woman who stands on the corner of Maine Street and Longfellow Avenue every day, the one wearing all those funny hats and colorful costumes, always waving and smiling at cars? Sure, she’s a crossing guard, because she helps kids cross the street, but what’s up with the goofy garb and the happy face? Unraveling the mystery means visiting the home of Lisa Green, where you’re warmly greeted by Olivia and Miss Mabel, Green’s two robust and, it must be said, calorically enhanced English Bulldogs. Green’s path to a crossing guard job was not exactly normal. “Normal people worry me,” Green said, laughing. She grew up Catholic in the heavily

She then joined the Army as a way to rebel against what she describes as “hippie parents.” In the Army, she was an outspoken Democrat in a largely Republican organization.

Workplace discrimination is just plain wrong.

By Emily Parkhurst PORTLAND — Students at the East End Community School may soon join the growing number of school children using Apple iPads as learning tools. EECS Principal Marcia Gendron, who moved from the Reiche School to EECS last year, has asked the School Department to purchase iPads and possibly even iPods as part of the federal School Improvement Grant process. The school received $1.8 million from the federal government to improve its students’ test scores as part of a three-year turn-around plan for the school. “We would be able to cross language barriers like we’ve never done before,” Gendron said during a recent School Board meeting. A significant number of students at the school come from families where English is not spoken at home. Gendron said she hopes the iPads will help teachers work with English language learners, providing instant access to their native languages online and possibly facilitating English learning at home. “We want to merge this with parent and family engagement.

The grant will create classes for teachers and possibly in-class lessons, so teachers can learn how to use the new technology alongside their students.

A commencement commentary Forgive me, dearest readers, for I have sinned. I realize my maternal emotions have taken over as of late, leading me to share with you the torrent of eldest-child-relatedactivities which have taken No Sugar center stage in my life for the past seven months: college searching, prom-dress contemplations, and now, the pinnacle of it all – high school graduation. It’s not that I’ve stopped dating, or that my life has been otherwise void of amusing anecdotes, but those items have been placed on the back burner. Such are the sacrifices one makes as a single parent. And since I was recently reminded Sandi Amorello that at this juncture in our society’s evolution, only 48 percent of all marriages are successful, I know there are plenty of single parents out there who have been feeling my joy – and pain. So, this is it. D-Day has arrived. No more starry-eyed daydreams of the future, imagining what feelings will fill my heart when my first-born is on the cusp of venturing out of the nest and into the brave new world that is higher education. No more wondering what she will look like when she “grows up.” No more sitting in front of a computer screen, in a nursing bra and baggy sweater laced with baby spit-up, staring incredulously at Fidelity’s college planning

website chart that says, “if your child was born this year, by 2011 you will need to have saved $185,000 in order to send her to a private college – so don’t plan on going on any vacations, purchasing any decent clothing or buying any Pellegrino for a couple of decades.” This weekend, along with a gaggle of other students across the country, my lovely daughter receives her high school diploma. With it will come a stream of tears, a heart full of love and memories, and a sigh that says, “Wow, we made it.” When you have children, every accomplishment of theirs also feels like an accomplishment of yours. And it is. Because, although they are their own unique human beings, let’s face it: they are only donning that cap and gown because you, dear parent, have somehow managed to keep them alive. From birth onward, you are their guardian angel. And in the beginning, you are more like an entire paramedic squad. Everything in your home is child-proofed. For four years or so, you cannot plug anything into an electrical outlet, open a bathroom or kitchen cabinet door, walk through a doorway or up or down a flight of stairs without an ungodly amount of unlatching, finagling or feats of gymnastic ridiculousness. Admittedly, my thighs were never in better shape than during the eight consecutive years in which I navigated a house outfitted with childproofing gates. I could have easily put members of the U.S. Olympic hurdling team to shame. The other night, I sat with Ophelia on a bench in Portland, as she reminisced about her final day at the creative business establishment where she was fortunate enough to

do her senior internship project. As I sat beside her, looking into her father’s big, chocolaty brown eyes, I felt a sense of awe. I thought to myself, “Wow. Where did this wonderful, witty, gorgeous, sweet, sensitive, smart, quirky, creative and insightful young woman come from? Surely, this cannot be the product of my years of try-my-best brand of parenting. There must have been divine intervention.” Just as those deep thoughts infiltrated my brain, I had flashbacks of a pregnancy test and tears of happiness, labor pains and the sweet scent of new-baby skin, red-striped tights and first steps, a French nursery school fiasco, bubble baths with Barbie dolls, ballet recitals, temper tantrums (mine and hers), birthday parties and homemade Halloween costumes, flower fairies and notes to Santa Claus. Braids and Band-Aids, kisses and hugs and tears over middle school friendship dramas, late-night talks about bras and boys and the pain and joy of falling in love with someone, someday. And I remembered exactly where she came from. And I wouldn’t have missed one single skinned knee. Congratulations to all the graduates, and to the parents who love them. The best is yet to come.

Channeling the sports curmudgeon My turn to play the role of a soccer dad has come. I spent my Memorial Day weekend at Nauset, Mass., Regional High School, on Cape Cod, attending a New England Soccer Classic tournament. Short Like others before me, I sat on the sidelines while my son’s team played teams composed of other people’s sons. I felt pride in their good play, frustration at their missed offensive opportunities and defensive lapses, annoyance at the bad calls, and occasional resentment toward their opposition. I did my best to only cheer positive encouragement. I tried to restrain myself from the urge to jeer. I mostly Halsey Frank succeeded. It is a relatively new role for me. I have been an amateur athlete of modest ability, and a professional sports fan of moderate dedication. I grew up playing baseball and football. My son plays lacrosse in addition to soccer. I grew up rooting for the New York Mets, Knicks and football

Giants, and endured many years of mediocrity between the occasional championships. In contrast, my son has led a charmed life as a sports fan. Since he arrived in Maine in 1999, he has known nothing but success. He has no idea about the frustrations and heartaches that generations before him endured: the Bucky Dent home run, the Mookie Wilson grounder to first, the Patriots when they were hapless, the Celtics’ loss of Len Bias. He’s seen the Sox win the World Series, the Patriots win the Super Bowl, the Celtics win the NBA championship, and now the Bruins with a shot to win the Stanley Cup. Maybe I’m being nostalgic, but it seems to me that over the past 30 years, NBA basketball has become more physical, while NHL hockey has become more skillful. I trace the beginning of the decline of NBA basketball to its peak in the 1980s. At the time, the NBA featured a style of team play that emphasized teamwork. The Celtics were led by Larry Bird. They played a New England brand of the game: methodical, with lots of picks and cuts and rolls, precision passes, and sharpshooting. In contrast, Magic Johnson’s Lakers played a star-studded, West Coast, fast-breaking, Hollywood/showtime form of the game. And many of the other teams in the league had distinctive personalities of their own, like the Detroit Pistons, the bad boys of Motor

City led by Bill Laimbeer, Isaiah Thomas and Joe Dumars. Basketball began to change when the officials started allowing more physical contact. I remember defenders being allowed to put their shoulder into Kevin McHale’s back and drive him out of the low post to neutralize the drop-stepping, double-jointed moves that he employed so well from the paint. Then, they started to allow big men like Shaquille O’Neal to pound their way into the low post. Now, the game is a contact sport and I can discern no consistent principle by which fouls are called. In contrast, during roughly the same period of time, hockey has become more skillful. It was always fast and physical. But it has become less of a brawl since the Russian Army team skated and passed circles around most of the NHL’s best during a goodwill tour in the mid-1970s. The NHL was embarrassed by the disparity in quality of play. It embarked on a program to raise the level of its game. Today, NHL hockey is still fast and physical, but the teamwork, the passing, the shooting, and the goal-tending are amazing.

Does Beem use paper products? Edgar Allen Beem exposed his liberal snobbery in his recent “Lurching toward LURC reform” commentary. In discussing easing regulations for land use in northern Maine, he states, “Some folks seem to think turning the North Maine Woods into toilet paper is its highest and best use.” I assume Mr. Beem uses toilet paper (if not, I would avoid shaking his hand). Where does he think toilet paper comes from? Does it show up in his bathroom every morning from the toilet paper fairies? His statement is demeaning to the hard-working people in forestry. At a time of 9 percent unemployment, Mr. Beem is more concerned about an imaginary Shangri-La of pristine forests in northern Maine than providing good jobs. I would bet that the closest Mr. Beem has been to the north woods is the Olive Garden in Augusta. Companies from Finland and Washington that I’ve worked with while I was in the printing industry, such as UPM and Weyerhaeuser, nurture, replant and manage their forest lands as well as Maine potato farmer. Finland and Washington state continue to have beautifully clear rivers and streams. As someone who writes for a newspaper printed on newsprint (and uses toilet paper), you would think Mr. Beem would be a supporter of paper companies and the men and women who rely on those jobs. But his selfinterest in his political viewpoint and party line comes first. Craig Barnes Woolwich

Short Relief from previous page Does it matter how these games are played? What the rules are and how penalties are called? Whether they emphasize teamwork or individual performance? Brute force or finesse? Does it matter who is the best at putting a ball through a hoop, sticking a puck in a net, or hitting a ball with a stick? They’re not going to cure AIDS, end world hunger, or ensure world peace. Is professional sport anything more than making a spectacle of winning at any cost? Rules define a game and give it meaning and value. Some rules are in synch with their game and the nature of sport. Others, not so much. Good rules, consistently applied, allow players and teams to develop their skills and techniques and apply them so that it becomes apparent who

All (non-partisan) politics are local Since the sore sports who lost the Taxpayer Bill of Rights referendums managed to saddle Maine cities and towns with a budget validation process that gives budget-cutters a second bite at the apple, town meetings haven’t been quite the same. Used to be that we voted on Election Day and then went to Town Meeting after the polls closed The Universal to transact our yearly municipal business and await the local election results. Now we hold Town Meeting a week ahead of time so we can validate the school budget on Election Day. The whole thing strikes me as anti-climactic at best, an affront to direct democracy at worst. Around here, local elections are all about Edgar Allen Beem passing and protecting school budgets. Back in 1995, when a prominent gentleman ran for School Committee promising to reduce the school budget, I was recruited to oppose him. I ran on a promise to increase the school budget, which we did all six years I was in office, and improve school facilities, which we did with the help of a $20 million school facilities bond that passed the day I left office. I then served on the facilities committee that oversaw the construction of a new primary school and the total renovation of the high school. That’s right, I’m a tax-and-spend Democrat and darn proud of it, thank you very much. But truth be told, local politics are usually not partisan matters at all. The woman who chaired the School Committee and led the school bond issue campaign was and is a conservative Republican. Our kids went to the same schools and played on the same teams and we sup-

and which are better. At the top of any well-ordered game, the best often have comparable physical abilities. The difference between first and second best is often intangible: leadership, teamwork, sacrifice, determination, spirit, heart, resilience; qualities that can serve a person well in other aspects of life. My son’s team made it to the semifinals. On the way,

ported them. I didn’t even realize she was so conservative until years later. With the absence of party labels in local elections, you have to work a little harder to figure out for whom to vote. There are candidates nights and candidate profiles in the newspapers, of course, but just about everyone speaks in the same political platitudes, promising to be fiscally responsible while preserving whatever it is that’s so great about the town and the schools. Unless there is some controversy brewing or a divisive issue facing the electorate, critics need not apply. If you want to meet the candidates, for School Board, Town Council or state Legislature, try the dump on Saturday morning. Everyone shows up there sooner or later. Local candidates help unload trash and shake hands around the hopper. Not all that sanitary perhaps, but downright neighborly. If you don’t know a local candidate or where he/she stands, the most efficient way to find out about them is to just ask a friend. Then, too, whose lawns a candidate’s signs are on and who signs their endorsement ads generally tells you everything you need to know. “If Buckminster and Barbie like him, that’s good enough for me.” “I’m not voting for anyone the Nutellas support.” The only real problem with the unaffiliated nature of local elections is that, without a party to field a candidate, we sometimes wind up with people running unopposed or, as this year, having too many good candidates to choose from. Do be sure to vote on June 14 and, if you don’t see any candidates that excite you, consider running yourself next time. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Revitalize your wardrobe on a budget Clothing styles change on a whim according to what trend forecasters see as the “it” items of the season. People looking to keep abreast of certain styles or just maintain a fresh supply of different wardrobe options may find that replenishing a closet can be an expensive venture. But it doesn’t have to be.

Those without a set budget may be able to afford monthly shopping trips to add new pieces to a wardrobe. However, the average person lives on a tighter budget, and there may not be as much room for discretionary spending on clothing and accessories. According to VisualEconomics.com, a family of three making about $64,000 per year can expect to spend roughly 4 percent of those earnings on apparel and services. People interested in refreshing their selection of clothing more frequently should consider alternative options than buying retail. Here are some ideas to think about.

Clothing Swap A good way to socialize and switch-up a wardrobe is to host a clothing swap party.

Plus Size consi�nments 16 and up

50%

markdowns

Invite around 10 friends or family members to be part of it. Be sure to have at least 2 or 3 of the same-sized people so that there won’t be an abundance of items to fit one person and not enough to fit another. Shoes and accessories are also acceptable. Set the rules for the event, where each person is entitled to take as many items as she has brought. Encourage guests to bring clean, gently used items that are in good condition. Because this type of get-together involves some advanced work of sorting through clothing, be sure to give guests ample advance notice. Have refreshments on hand and opportunities to chat over styles and options. Whatever clothes are not taken by others can be donated to charity.

&Consignment Consignment Stores

It used to be that consignment stores were the stepchildren of the retail world. Many people viewed them as glorified tag sales and didn’t think they were worthy of investigation. Nowadays, consignment shops are big business and good places for savvy shoppers to visit. Much like overstock stores sell items on discount that are on par with department stores, consignment shops often offer new or very lightly used items for resale – at a fraction of the original retail price. Plus, they’re an ideal place to look for unique pieces and accessories that might otherwise have been out of budget.

When buying new items at a store, buy pieces that can be put together in a variety of combinations. Stick to similar colors and themes so that each piece will work seamlessly. Consider multi-layered items that can be worn with a cardigan or without; or go from the office to a dinner date afterward. Remember, items that blend can be worn more often because they won’t stick out in the minds of others as something flashy. continued page 23

McAuley welcomes Goodman as new hoops coach By Michael Hoffer PORTLAND — If the McAuley girls’ basketball program handles its recent coaching change the way it did challenging situations on the floor this past winter, Billy Goodman is in for an ideal situation. Goodman, a longtime Deering assistant and for the past three winters, head girls’ coach at Greely, was named McAuley’s coach Friday, filling the vacancy opened three weeks ago when Amy Vachon stepped down to take an assistant’s job at the University

of Maine, her alma mater. All parties are positive about Goodman’s addition. “I’m really excited,” said Allie Clement, who just wrapped up a freshman year which saw her emerge as one of the state’s elite point guards. “I’m sure he’ll be a great coach. I know him pretty well. He’s worked with my Firecracker AAU team. I think he’ll coach us to compete with anybody. Hopefully, we’ll get back to business.” “I think it’s good,” said Alexa Coulombe, the soon-to-be-senior

and state’s premier post player. “I like his coaching style. He knows the game well. Amy leaving was hard, but everyone adjusted well. We’re ready to go. We made it work last year with a new coach. We can do it again.” Goodman said he is “fired up” for the new opportunity. “McAuley basketball is a family and being a part of a family was one of the things that appealed to me the most,” Goodman said. “I’m a basketball coach and I’m willing to put the time into it. I won’t rock the boat. Hopefully it’s

Note: For the full Cheverus-Westbrook baseball, McAuleySouth Portland softball, Portland-Scarborough boys’ lacrosse and Waynflete-Yarmouth girls’ lacrosse game stories, visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer The city of Portland is about to see an abundance of baseball, softball and lacrosse playoff action.

and 2008. He was an assistant coach under Mike D’Andrea on Deering’s 2004 and 2008 girls’ basketball championship teams. Goodman was named Forecaster Coach of the Year in the fall of 2008 and winter of 2008-09. Goodman spent three years at Greely, going 51-11 and reaching the Western B Final three times. Goodman’s teams were no match for powerhouse York, losing to the Wildcats in the playoffs each of his years, but he did a stellar job with that program and showed his loyalty to the Rangers twice. Just after becoming Greely’s coach in 2008, Goodman’s dream job, Deering, came open, but he stayed in Cumberland. When the McAuley position was available in 2010, Goodman again elected to say with the Rangers. He left

Waynflete’s Ordway wins tennis singles title Team playoffs heat up

Baseball Three of four city baseball teams will participate in the postseason. Cheverus capped its best regular season of the playoff era last week with a gritty 6-2 win at preseason favorite Westbrook in eight innings to wind up 14-2 and earn the top seed for the playoffs for the first time. The Stags (who beat the Blue Blazes again in extra innings, 3-2, in eight frames, in the league championship game Saturday) host No. 8 Thornton Academy (10-6) in the quarterfinals Thursday at 4 p.m. Way back on April 27, Cheverus eked out a 5-4 home win over the Golden Trojans. The teams last met in the postseason in the 2007 quarterfinals (10-7 Thornton Academy victory). “We know we have a good team here,” said Stags coach Mac McKew. “The league’s going to be tough because there is so much good pitching. The first round game is going to be tough.” Deering produced a solid 13-3 record in coach Mark Sutton’s first season. The Rams closed with a 7-3 home victory over South Portland and earned the No. 3 seed, setting up a quarterfinal round date versus No. 6 Marshwood (11-5) Thursday at

an easy transition.” McAuley athletic director Joe Kilmartin said he had several candidates, although not as many as last time, and that Goodman stood apart. “I think he’s a good Goodman choice,” said Kilmartin. “I liked him to begin with. He has the background. He lives for basketball. He’s always talking about it. Amy worked with him and they have the same basics that the girls can relate to.” Goodman is a 1987 graduate of Deering High School. He played golf at Western New England. He’s coached golf at his alma mater since 2001, leading the Rams to Class A championships in 2002

4 in a game to be played at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham. Deering beat the Hawks, 3-2, at home, on May 28. The teams have no playoff history. Portland, despite a 6-1 home win over Scarborough in its finale, fell short of the playoffs at 6-10 in Tony DiBiase’s first season. In Western C, Waynflete, by virtue of last Tuesday’s 12-4 home win over Sacopee, finished 8-4, its first winning regular season since 1994. The Flyers earned the No. 6 seed for the playoffs and go to No. 3 Wiscasset (13-3) in the quarterfinals Wednesday at 4 p.m. Waynflete seeks its first playoff win in a decade against a team with which it has no history. The semifinal round is Saturday. Games will be played on the field of the higher remaining seed. The Western A Final is Wednesday of next week at 3 p.m., at St. Joseph’s College in Standish. The Western C Final is the same day at the same location with a 7 p.m. start time.

Softball McAuley, the lone city playoff entrant, will host a softball playoff game for the first time since the 2005 preliminary round. The Lions played valiantly in their regular season finale, but lost, 1-0, at home to defending Class A state champion South Portland last Tuesday. McAuley wound up with a program-best 12 wins (against four losses) and earned the No. 4 seed (its best ever) and will host No. 5 Kennebunk (12-4) in the quarterfinals Thursday at 4 p.m. McAuley edged the visiting Rams, 3-2, on May 2. The teams have no playoff history. If the Lions make it to the semifinals for the first time in program history, they’ll almost certainly go to South Portland Saturday. The Western A Final is Wednesday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m., at St. Joseph’s College. Cheverus was a 6-4 winner at continued page 18

By Michael Hoffer For the second year in a row and just the second time ever, a Waynflete boys’ tennis player is the best individual in the state. Last year, Brandon Thompson did the honors and Monday, Patrick Ordway became the 2011 boys’ singles champion, capping a dominant run with a triumph in a three-set thriller over Falmouth’s Justin Brogan at Bates College in Lewiston. Ordway went into last week’s second round as the top seed. He dominated Camden Hills’ Evan Drinkwater (6-0, 6-0), Presque Isle’s Caleb Mathers (6-2, 6-1) and No. 8 Tyler Small of Ellsworth (6-0, 6-1) to reach the semifinals. Monday, Ordway eliminated No. 4 Matt Gilman of Cape Elizabeth, 6-0, 6-2, then, in the championship, outlasted Brogan, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3. “I’m really excited,” Ordway said. “It means a lot to me. I always wanted to win it. My sister (Christine) won it a couple times and I supported her. She supported me this time. “It was a really close (final) match. I played (Justin) a couple matches in the regular season and they were close. I knew it would be tough. He got the first set and looked like he might win, but I won a few big points and got momentum. It was a fun match.”

Waynflete’s Eric Ordway won his first round match, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, over Zachary DeBlois of St. Dom’s. He beat No. 10 Alex Henny in a walkover, then was eliminated by No. 7 Eric Hall of Lewiston, 0-6, 0-6. Cheverus’ Will Lenk was a 6-1, 7-6 (5) winner over Hall-Dale’s Spencer Shagoury in the second round, then was eliminated by Gilman, 5-7, 1-6.

Cheverus teams fourth at Class A state track meet By Michael Hoffer City runners, jumpers and throwers had their moments at the state outdoor track championships Saturday. At the Class A meet in Windham, Cheverus girls led a tightly-bunched pack midway through, but ultimately wound up fourth with 49 points. Bonny Eagle pulled a mild surprise, edging perennial power Scarborough (82-78) to win the title. Deering came in 11th with 25 points. Portland (4) tied for 20th. Bonny Eagle won the boys’ title as well, 94-90, over Edward Little. The Stags were fourth on that side also with 52 points. Portland came in 12th with 20 points. Deering,

which didn’t score a year ago, (17) placed 14th. McAuley did not score at the Class B girls’ meet in Augusta. It was the first time since 2003 that the Lions failed to register a point. Waterville (145.5) was the runaway winner. At the Class C meet in Bath, Waynflete’s boys tied for 27th with 4 points. Maranacook (75) won the title. The girls also tied for 27th with 2 points. Traip (79) came in first.

Class A The Cheverus girls, who enjoyed their highest finish ever, were led by senior standout Caroline Summa, who capped her

Tennis from page 15 On the girls’ side, McAuley’s Addie Devine made it to the quarterfinals. Devine, ranked seventh, was a 6-4, 6-0 winner over Lewiston’s Abby Blaisdell and downed Waterville’s Colleen O’Donnell (ranked 10th), 6-2, 6-3, before falling to Falmouth’s Annie Criscione (ranked second), 0-6, 1-6. Cheverus’ Maria Cianchette won her second round match, 6-2, 6-4, over Foxcroft Academy’s Lindsey Kousaie, 6-2, 6-4, then was eliminated by Falmouth’s Analise Kump, the No. 4 seed, 2-6, 0-6. Portland’s Molly Gallagher downed Hampden Academy’s SaraEllen Gilen, 6-0, 6-2, in the first round, but was ousted by Lewiston’s Jessica Bowen, 1-6, 1-6, in the second round. Waynflete’s Katilyn Thompson beat Oak Hill’s Hannah Langlois, 6-2, 6-0, in

the first round, then lost to O’Donnell, 5-7, 4-6, in the second round. Cheverus’ Abby Harrison beat Anna Jaeger of NYA in a walkover in the first round, then suffered a 7-5, 2-6, 2-6 loss to Hampden Academy’s Ashley Woodside. McAuley’s Paige Hickey fell in the first round, 4-6, 4-6, to York’s Emily Campbell. Teammate Nicole Connolly was a 3-6, 3-6 loser to Belfast’s Shoshanna Moll in the first round.

Team competition underway The team playoffs began last week. The Deering boys, ranked sixth, upset No. 3 Cheverus, 3-2, in the Western Class A quarterfinals, then lost, 5-0, at No. 2 Scarborough Monday to finish 8-6. The Stags wound up 11-2. In Western C, three-time defending champion Waynflete, the No. 5 seed, had no trouble at No. 4 St. Dom’s, 5-0, in the quarterfinals, then upset No. 1 Winthrop, 3-2, in the semis. The Flyers

(9-5) advanced to play in the regional final Wednesday. On the girls’ side, undefeated and topranked Cheverus barely survived No. 8 South Portland in the Western A quarterfinals, 3-2, then, had its run come to an end Monday in the semifinals with a 4-1 home loss to No. 4 Scarborough. The Stags wound up 13-1. McAuley, the No. 2 seed, was a 5-0 quarterfinal round winner over No. 7 Deering, ending the Rams’ year at 7-6. The Lions then dropped a hard-fought 3-2 home decision to No. 3 Gorham in the semifinals and finished 12-2. Portland finished 8-5 after a 3-2 quarterfinal round loss to Scarborough. In Western C, Waynflete, ranked

eighth, rolled at No. 1 Hall-Dale, 4-1, in the quarterfinals, then blanked No. 5 Dirigo, 5-0, in the semifinals, to improve to 9-5. The Flyers moved on to Wednesday’s regional final to meet Winthrop, which upset four-time defending champion and Waynfete nemesis NYA, 3-2.

from page 15

Bonny Eagle in its final game to wind up 3-13. Deering also went 3-13 this season.

Portland finished 0-16, closing with a 17-1 (five inning) loss at Sanford.

Boys’ lacrosse

Deering, Portland and Waynflete’s boys’ lacrosse teams are hoping for postseason glory.

The Rams produced the best team in program history this spring, finishing 11-1 after a 19-2 romp at Bonny Eagle in the finale. Deering earned the second seed in Eastern Class A and a bye into Saturday’s semifinals. The Rams will host either No. 3 Messalonskee (11-1) or No. 6 Mt. Ararat (6-6) at a time to be determined.

Deering did not face either team this season and has no playoff history against either Eagles’ squad.

Portland, the two-time defending regional champion, wound up 9-3 and fourth in Eastern A after last Wednesday’s 9-4 loss at Scarborough in a rematch of last year’s state final. The Bulldogs host No. 5 Brunswick (6-6) in the quarterfinals Wednesday at 5 p.m., at Fitzpatrick Stadium. The teams did not play this year. They did square off in the 2007 Class A Final, a 12-9 win for the Dragons, and the 2009 state game, when Portland won its first and only title to date, 9-3.

Cheverus, despite wins in three of its final four contests, wound up 5-7 and seventh in Eastern A, where only six teams qualify for the postseason. The Stags closed with a 10-8 loss at Gorham last Wednesday.

June 8, 2011

In Western B, Waynflete posted its best record in six years, 9-3, despite a regular season-ending 16-5 loss at Cape Elizabeth, which snapped a five-game win streak. The Flyers finished fourth in the region and go to Falmouth in the semifinals Saturday (the game time hadn’t been determined by press time). On April 27, Waynflete lost, 17-5, at Falmouth. The teams have met twice prior in the playoffs and the Flyers captured both, 7-5 in the 2002 divisional quarterfinals and 14-13 in the 2006 quarterfinals. The regional finals for boys’ lacrosse will be contested Wednesday, June 15, on the fields of the highest remaining seeds. The state games are Saturday, June 18 at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

Girls’ lacrosse The Waynflete girls’ lacrosse squad hopes to bounce back from a loss in the regular season finale to make a run at yet another championship. The Flyers, who lost to North Yarmouth Academy in last year’s Class B Final, finished 10-2 this year after last Wednesday’s 13-8 loss at Yarmouth. “I’m super-psyched to go 10-2,” longtime Waynflete coach Cathie Connors said. “I did not see that coming. They pulled together and realized they needed to. I saw a lot of little things that they fixed that no one else can see and that makes me happy.” Despite the regular season-ending loss, Waynflete still wound up ranked first for the fourth year in a row and will host No. 4 Greely (6-6) in the semifinals Saturday (at a time to be determined). The Flyers beat the Rangers in a slugfest, 22-11, May 11 at home. Waynflete has won

seven of the eight prior playoff meetings, most of them in dramatic fashion. The last encounter came in the 2008 regional final (a 16-5 Waynflete triumph). “After today, it matters,” Connors said. “(Against Yarmouth), we learned from what we didn’t do right and we’ll get better.” In Eastern A, Portland will be the No. 5 seed after ending up 6-6 following a season-ending 13-3 loss to Marshwood. The Bulldogs were at No. 4 Mt. Ararat (7-5) in the quarterfinals Tuesday. The teams didn’t play this year. Portland has never faced the Eagles in the postseason. Cheverus somehow wound up with the No. 6 seed after going 3-9. The Stags earned an invite to the playoff party largely by virtue of their season-ending stunning home upset win over Gorham. Cheverus goes to No. 3 Messalonskee (9-3) for the quarterfinals Wednesday at 5

p.m. Back on April 30, the Stags lost at the Eagles, 10-4. The teams have no playoff history.

Deering finished 4-8 after a 15-3 home loss to Massabesic and wound up eighth in the region, where only six teams make the postseason.

In Western A, McAuley enjoyed its best season since 2005, finishing 6-6, but the Lions wound up 11th in the Heals and only seven teams qualified for the playoffs.

The regional finals for girls’ lacrosse will be contested Wednesday, June 15, on the fields of the highest remaining seeds. The state games are Saturday, June 18 at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

Goodman from page 15 Greely last month. “My time at Greely was great,” said Goodman, who said he also applied at Westbrook prior to landing the McAuley position. “I miss those players. The girls worked hard. They were all great kids.” Goodman had Vachon as an assistant coach for two seasons and doesn’t expect that McAuley followers will notice dramatic changes. “I love to play fullcourt basketball,” Goodman said. “I like to do what we did at Deering, play hardnosed defense and if

The summer basketball season begins Monday. ‘We lost Rebecca Knight to UMaine, but we have Allie and Alexa and Sadie (DiPierro) back,” Goodman said. “It’s a question of who steps up to fill roles. Hopefully we’ll get used to each other this summer.” Goodman said he plans to retain the current McAuley lineup of assistant coaches.

iPads from page 5 we will support (iPads).” Superintendent James C. Morse Sr. said he has met with a local technology company and that the district may seek bids on an assessment of its current technology support staff and infrastructure. Other School Board members expressed concern that new technology would weaken or dissolve the interpersonal relationships between teachers and their students. “There’s a huge relationship component,” Gendron said. “Someone would be assisting us with that.” In addition to the iPads, the grant will cover extended learning opportunities before and after school, technology and literacy coaches, and parent and community programming support. Gendron said she has tried to avoid using SIG money to hire new teachers, because the grant money will be gone in three years. “I’m really looking at this as being sustainable, so that it doesn’t require financial support once we get through the grant,” she said. The board does not have to approve the iPad expenditure or the three-year SIG plan. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or eparkhurst@theforecaster.net.

Roundup from page 1 in the courts because of several motions filed by Portland Co., some of which she called “creative.” Mann said the city won those arguments, which saved up to $1.5 million. The jury ultimately settled on a value $795,000, less than half of what the Portland Co. sought. The jury also awarded Portland Co. more than $240,000 in prejudgement interest, which was calculated from when the lawsuit was filed on July 6, 2005. The city, however, believes the interest payment should be calculated from when the Supreme Judicial Court ruled

Just for Seniors RSVP of Southern Maine is looking for volunteers ages 55 and older for community work,

on Sept. 13, 2009, that the land seizure was legal, clearing the way for the debate over the easement’s value. The court battle has resulted in significant legal costs on both sides: $180,000 for the city and $250,000 for the Portland Co. Phineas Sprague, owner of Portland Co., on Tuesday said he was disappointed that the case continues to drag on. He said the wrangling has discouraged developers from proposing projects along the eastern waterfront. “Let’s get this behind us,” he said. “This whole thing is awful. This is not a victory; it’s a disaster.” Sprague claimed the city’s aggressiveness in the case has resulted in developers pulling plans for projects that would help the area implement the vision outlined in the Eastern Waterfront Master Plan. The stymied development has resulted in lost tax revenues much greater than the settlement, he said. “No one in their right mind is going to make an investment if they’re competing with the government,” he said. Councilor Cheryl Leeman on Monday questioned whether the legal battle was worth it. But Mann said it was necessary to clear the title on the land. Mann used the analogy of a champagne bottle to illustrate the importance of the case, equating the easement to a cork in a vintage bottle owned by the city. “You can’t enjoy the champagne until you have ownership of the cork,” she said.

Bayside land The council also voted unanimously to sell seven cityowned lots along Somerset Street in Bayside for $2.3 million. The city is selling about 3.25 acres of land to Miamibased Federated Cos., which will now work with city staff and neighborhood residents to draft a mixed-used development that will include market-rate housing, offices and retail businesses. Leeman noted that there are specific benchmarks that will allow the city to buy back the land if Federated, which also owns the Bayside Village Apartments, fails to move forward with the project. Councilors ignored a request by Bateman Partners representative Chris O’Neil to conduct a public review of a competing proposal from Bateman, which was working with the University of New England to build a new

graduate school of dentistry, community clinical services, administrative offices and student housing in Bayside. O’Neil cautioned the city about being prejudiced against a nonprofit use of the property, since some councilors noted that having a taxable use played a key role in their decision. Councilor John Anton said he is not against nonprofit groups in Portland and that he would still like to see the dental clinic established in Bayside. “There is nothing in the purchase and sale with Federated that would rule that out,” he said. Anton said he looked forward to the development of the land, which has been on the market for about six years. “It’s been a long road,” he said. “It’s pretty exciting to sort of turn the corner on these properties.”

City manager

In other business, the council agreed to a three-year employment contract with Mark Rees, who will be the new city manager. It’s the first time the city has had an employment contract with its manager. Rees will receive a $143,000 annual salary, a $450 monthly vehicle stipend, three weeks of vacation a year and up to $10,000 for moving costs. The contract requires Rees to become a permanent resident of Portland within 15 months. Former City Manager Joe Gray, who was with the city 40 years, including 10 years as city manger, earned a salary of $121,000 when he resigned in February. Rees, who is currently the city manager of North Andover, Mass., left Monday’s meeting after the council approved his contract to prepare for an annual Town Meeting and to ask the North Andover Town Council to waive his 90-day notice, so he can start before Sept. 1. Rees was selected over 65 other applicants, including Acting City Manager Pat Finnegan, who was one of three finalists. “I assure you,” he told the City Council, “you will not be disappointed.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or rbillings@theforecaster. net.

AdvancePierre,” he said. Barber Foods, whose brand is carried in retail grocery stores, wholesale clubs and by food-service industries, produces more than 300 frozen raw and fully cooked foods, featuring a variety of stuffed chicken breasts. The company also manufactures an assortment of other frozen chicken products, including chicken nuggets, chicken fingers and chicken fillets. AdvancePierre Foods was formed in October 2010, in the merger of Pierre Foods, Advance Food Co. and Advance Brands. The company produces a line of packaged sandwiches, fully cooked chicken and beef, Philly-style steak, breaded beef, pork and baked goods. Barber said AdvancePierre Foods was

Firefighters, who had to open up the roof to fight the fire, had the blaze knocked down in about 45 minutes, LaMontagne said. “It was a very man-power intensive process to fight the fire,” he said. LaMontagne that six to eight residents of the three-unit apartment building were able to make it out safely and found places to stay. No firefighters were injured, he said.

from page 5 In 2004, Green moved to Maine to take a position at the Brunswick Naval Air Station, before it closed. Lisa has been a crossing guard since 2008, but she hasn’t always played the clown. “A car almost clipped me while I was at my first post on Jordan Avenue,” she said, “so I decided to wear silly colorful hats so no one would miss me.” Drivers passing by can’t possibly miss her now, whatever the month. October means all kinds of outlandish Halloween costumes. November brings a turkey theme. Christmas hats star in December, and so on right through the month of May, a time for flowery adornments. Every day there is a different costume or hat, rain or shine. “My mother was a teacher, so I use lots of holiday decorations from her teaching days,” Green said. “And I shop at thrift stores. Sometimes my 13-year-old son Pat-

rick (‘an awesome kid!’) makes me a hat. Sometimes we just redecorate old hats. One Christmas, Patrick even made a gingerbread house for me to wear.” And how do people react to Green’s daily sartorial shenanigans? “Kids love it,” she said. “They wonder what I’m going to wear the next day. Nothing’s better than making a kid smile on the way to school. “Old people often honk and wave as they drive by. Sometimes teenagers and young adults look at me like I’m weird. And every once in a while I’ll get a curmudgeon who just won’t smile.” Even curmudgeons might smile if they spent some time hearing Lisa’s riff. Here’s one example: “I don’t need a man because I have those two dogs. They snore, they fart and they keep my tush warm at night.” Lisa would like to get a part-time job to supplement her income, but only if it left her free to fulfill her crossing guard duties

formed through the merger of two other family-owned businesses, and is committed his company’s mission. “Our products are a terrific complement to (AdvancePierre’s) existing line,” Barber said. “And we share similar philosophies about our priorities of food safety, quality, service and productivity leading to growth. It’s a great fit.” Barber said the privately held companies would not release financial details of the transaction. While operations over the next year will change, Barber said one thing will remain the same. “We’re making chicken today, and we will be making chicken tomorrow,” he said.

fire damage to the third floor and the attic, but it could be days before official damage estimates are provided. Although it may also take several days to determine the fire’s cause, LaMontagne said preliminary findings indicate the fire was accidental. But LaMontagne said the initial results of the investigation are “very preliminary.”

Consider Shopping Online

Shoppers are often amazed at the wide variety of items that can be purchased online. If a shopper doesn’t see something in a store for the price she wants, she can comparison shop online. Although she can’t try on merchandise, with the exception of some sites that offer a virtual model, many online retailers offer free shipping on returns. Online shopping also takes the hassle out of visiting several stores, finding parking and dealing with crowds. Plus, a shopper can purchase things on her own time whether that’s early morning or after the kids have gone to bed.

Explore Tailoring

Think about how Molly Ringwald’s character turned pieces of fabric into new creations in the cult 1980s film, “Pretty in Pink.” With some simple tailoring, just about anyone can modify items to make them look brand new. For those who don’t know their bobbins from their seam-rippers make friends with someone who does and enlist some help with fashion redesign.

Sex ed from page 1 ing and Human Sexuality program for younger children is run by several specially trained instructors who come into classrooms to teach what can be sensitive and difficult subject matter about puberty and basic sexual education. Middle school and high school students receive sex education from their health teachers. But now the schools will rely on its classroom teachers to implement the Family Living and Sexual Health program for fourth- and fifth-grade students. Health teachers will be implementing the state Department of Education’s Best Practices HIV prevention program for middle and high school students, which covers a range of sexual education topics, including HIV and sexually transmitted disease information. The new programs are supported by the Family Planning Association of Maine, which is providing training and purchasing the new curriculums. Lynette Johnson, director of prevention programming for the Maine FPA, said they typically support programs that integrate sexual education into the curriculum, rather than having it as a separate program. “If it’s integrated into the curriculum, then no matter whoever comes into that position, they can say, ‘this is what we do, this is the curriculum,’” she said. The new programs are evidence-based, meaning they have proved effective in other districts. The current Family Living program came under national scrutiny when it was revealed that King Middle School made birth control available to its students. School Board member Sarah Thompson said the current program is very successful and that many people will be upset to see it come to an end. “It’s been one of those things we just don’t want to let go of,” she said.

June 1, 2011

She said the King Middle School discussion allowed the district to better communicate the program to parents, and that, in the end, more parents allowed their children to participate as a result. Thompson said she was concerned that students would be less likely to report sexual abuse to their teachers, who they see every day. She said that there have been cases of students using an anonymous question box, which the current program utilizes, to ask questions about sexual abuse and other sensitive issues that they are reluctant to bring up with their teachers. “Who’s going to tell their homeroom teacher they’re being sexually abused?” Thompson said. Margaret Hoyt, who currently teaches sex education to the younger students, said she has had many sexual abuse disclosures. “I’ve had classroom teachers come back to me and say ‘I can’t believe so-and-so didn’t tell me he or she was being abused,’” Hoyt said. She said she is deeply concerned that classroom teachers and the health educators in the upper levels will not be comfortable enough or trained to respond to these kinds of difficult situations, or that students will simply not reveal sensitive information to their teachers. “I’ve had students shush me when their teacher walks in while I’m in the middle of a lesson,” Hoyt said. Dan Chuhta, a curriculum coordinator who has been working on the new program, said that is something the committee charged with making this change has been discussing. “We are going to have the support of school nurses and social workers, who will be available to support the teachers during delivery (of the curriculum),” Chuhta said. “These folks will be available to support teachers if those kinds of issues come up.” There is also concern that leaving sex education up to teachers puts the program at risk of inconsistency, including the possibility that some teachers may refuse

to teach certain topics, such as birth control and abortion, for religious reasons. “Obviously, there’s been concern from teachers, but there’s also been interest,” Chuhta said. He explained that the fourth- and fifth-grade curriculum, which will be taught by classroom teachers, does not contain the more controversial issues, like abortion, which is taught by the health teachers in the upper grades. Johnson said the FPA provides training to teachers and will even come into classrooms to model a class, if a teacher is particularly uncomfortable with how to present material. However, School Nurse Coordinator Amanda Rowe expressed concern that relying on an outside agency that could lose its funding at any moment, is a gamble for the district. “I’ve had concerns from the beginning, not because of the change, but because if you don’t plan really well, it doesn’t happen,” Rowe said. “I’m concerned we’re going to lose this information for our youngest folks.” Until very recently, funding was up in the air for the program when it looked like the state might cut funds to the FPA. “We try not to have recurrent costs,” Johnson said. “Once the teachers have been trained, the district can do it on their own.” The School Board is expected to hold its first reading of the new program on June 7. A workshop will be scheduled for a future meeting, and Thompson said she expects a second reading and public hearing to be held early in the fall. Portland Education Association President Kathleen Casasa did not respond to several requests for comment.

Out-of-state leadership moves into 2 schools By Emily Parkhurst PORTLAND — Portland High School and Riverton Elementary School will have new leadership next year, bringing in principals from out of state. Deborah Migneault, of Dover, N.H., will become the new Portland High School principal, taking over for Michael Johnson, who has been reassigned as principal at Portland Arts and Technology High School. Jeanne Malia from Los Angeles will

Loophole from page 1 Council until the Eastland was bought in Februrary by an Ohio-based investment group, RockBridge Capital. RockBridge received an exemption for $2.5 million in fees it would have owed for eliminating more than 50 residential rentals the company plans to turn into hotel rooms. About a dozen residents and housing advocates testified in favor of the fix. One of those residents was Alyssa Hall, 41, who said she is only a couple of paychecks away from being homeless. Hall lives in one of the 50 apartments that are expected to be replaced in the Eastland renovation project. “My foot is caught in that loophole,” Hall said. “At some point I will have to leave.” Parkside resident and former state

step into the Riverton principal role, taking over for Nancy Kopack, who is leaving the district. Migneault was the principal of Dover High School for three years and, before that, the assistant principal at Nashua (N.H.) High School for 10 years. She has two master’s degrees, one in secondary education and the other in 20th-century U.S. history and foreign policy. Malia was the principal at Brentwood Science Magnet in the Los Angles Uni-

fied School District for the past two years. In the past, she served the Portland Public Schools as a special education teacher and the assistant director of special services. She has a masters’s degree in literacy from the University of Southern Maine. Riverton Elementary is undergoing major changes as part of the federal “turnaround” program, which provides grant money to struggling schools to make dramatic changes in an attempt to improve

test scores. Riverton has replaced nearly half its teachers in two years. Migneault will receive an annual salary of more than $108,000 and Malia will receive almost $94,900. The School Board was expected to appoint the two candidates at its Tuesday night meeting.

Rep. Herb Adams recalled the history of the 241-room Eastland, saying the hotel originally boasted more than 140 permanent residences with amenities. Adams said it is “astonishing” that all of the affordable rental units could be gone within 84 years, or an individual’s lifetime. He called on the city to use it’s power of “moral suasion” to force the new owners to preserve that housing. “I have seen this council exert that moral suasion innumerable times ... where you have done so for Portland business,” Adams said. “Here’s a chance for you to do so for tenants who are in a real situation.” Councilor John Anton, who last year presided over the wholesale rewriting of the ordinance, said the Housing Committee never intended the ordinance to have such a broad exemption. Instead, Anton said the committee wanted only to protect property owners

otherwise received, he said. The $2.5 million payment for rental units that are expected to be lost could have been put toward additional affordable housing projects. Donoghue said the issue highlights the need for affordable housing at a time when vacancy rates are low and rents are increasing, because people who were previously homeowners are now entering the rental market. “It does raise this issue at an important time,” he said. “I think we have a lot of work to do in the city in terms of housing policy.” Councilor Jill Duson, who presided over Monday’s meeting, said she would like city staff to work with the Eastland owners to preserve the existing housing. “I would like to see city staff look into that,” she said.

who wanted to convert several small rentals into one or more larger units, while maintaining the square footage. Advocacy groups, including the Portland NAACP, Homeless Voices for Justice, Maine Affordable Housing Coalition, Maine People’s Alliance and the Pine Tree Legal Center, all testified on behalf of the change. Many of those groups cited a greater need for affordable housing in the city. But Anton said the ordinance is only part of the equation. “It was never envisioned to be the solution,” he said. Councilor Kevin Donoghue repeatedly apologized to residents who may be affected by the city’s mistake. Not only are people losing affordable housing, but the city lost revenue that it would have

of the event.

Aaron’s lifelong business plan was already sketched out, even before Lemonade Day.

Gooding said Lemonade Day is important because Maine’s educational system doesn’t devote much time to entrepreneurial skills.

No neighbor or passerby could get within earshot of the thirst-quenching business without Bradford making his pitch.

“I’ve always liked business,” Aaron said. “I want to own my own restaurant someday, and be the chef there. ... Then I want to retire in Cape Elizabeth and own a farm.”

“Everything is academic or vocational,” Gooding said. “An entrepreneurial track would be beneficial to help young people understand business plans and starting a business.”

“Do you like lemonade?” he yelled to a neighbor across the street who had just stepped out of a car. He was determined to make the sale, and for good reason.

In Portland, at least five separate lemonade stands were set up in Tommy’s Park, in addition to stands that dotted the Old Port and Congress Street.

Lemonade Day started in 2007 in Texas, but has since spread around the country. Gooding said 68,000 kids participated in 14 cities in 2010.

“I want to be a lemonade seller when I grow up,” Bradford said.

Children from the Boys and Girls Club of Southern Maine set up outside Sonny’s on Exchange Street and sold regular lemonade and “Bubbly Breeze Tea,” a homemade sparkling recipe.

Gooding said her husband, Don Gooding, first discovered Lemonade Day online. The Goodings contacted the executive director in Houston and Kate Gooding fell in love with the project.

Damien Moulton, 6, and Amy Bedard, 5, operated a well-crafted wooden cart with their aunt, Sharon Calhoun. The kids had painted the cart yellow and decorated it with handprints and footprints. Damien was excited to open his own bank account after Lemonade Day, but said running a business wasn’t easy.

“I could see how I could build on it,” Gooding said. “It had a future in my mind.”

Avenue, where they sold brownies, cookies, doughnuts and lemonade with lemon slices and mint.

Lemonade Day participants were encouraged to save some of their profits and donate some to charity. Bradford said he was going to give some of his cash to benefit animals. Max was going to help out the Preble Street soup kitchen in Portland. On Boothby Avenue, Aaron Matthews, 9, was working for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Following instructions from Lemonade Day Maine, Aaron sought investors for his stand. Those investors provided start-up support, which included a professional sign and a stylish lemonade dispenser.

Gooding said she hopes to ride the success of Lemonade Day to more events and activities designed to encourage children’s business sense.

“It’s so hard to be outdoors when it’s hot out,” he said.
