Planners narrow zoning for pot dispensaries, growers
Children held down
Emily Parkhurst / The Forecaster
Brandon Baizley pauses for a brief moment while playing on the playground at Pleasant Hill School in Scarborough. In the past year and half, Brandon has been subjected to more than 20 restraints by Scarborough Public School staff, which his parents say were extreme and dangerous.
Families question use of therapeutic restraints in Maine public schools By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — Brandon Baizley is smart, but even his parents admit he is a difficult 6-year-old. Brandon was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Oppositional Defiance Disorder more than a year ago. His parents, Bob and Mary Ann,
know that Brandon will constantly test their rules and boundaries, he will push their buttons and try to get that piece of candy, that trip to Build-a-Bear. But they also know that someday Brandon, whose IQ is significantly higher than the average child his age, will be a successful and pro-
ductive member of society. They just have to get him through school alive. While it may seem like hyperbole, the Baizleys believe Brandon’s life could be at risk from the therapeutic restraints imposed on him at school. The holds, which began when Brandon was 5 years
old, have occurred more than 25 times in the past year and a half, and have led to a sprained wrist, hospitalization and a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder. Fearing for his safety, Bob and Mary Ann pulled Brandon out of school for more than a month See page 26
By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — The Planning Board Tuesday night recommended that medical marijuana dispensaries be allowed in specific business zones, while cultivation of the plants be limited to industrial areas. The board’s recommendation to the City Council does not preclude a dispensary from cultivating marijuana on site, but would regulate where standalone growers could operate. Northeast Patients Group received permission from the state July 8 to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Portland. The group’s executive director, Rebecca DeKeuster, said they plan to be in business by December. The public hearing on the topic was a quiet affair, with comments from just DeKeuster and two members of the public. The Planning Board was acting on a recent directive from the council to study zoning for dispensaries, with a particular eye on the B-2 community business zones, B-3 downtown business zones and B-7 zones. Planners recommended, under guidance from city staff, that industrial zones in the city and the B-4 commercial corridor zone be used for cultivationonly facilities. Northeast Patients Group is See page 33
Portland Planning Board urges relaxed waterfront zoning By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — More nonmarine uses will be allowed on piers if the City Council adopts Planning Board recommendations that include reconsideration of a 23-year-old ban on waterfront housing. The board wants the City
Council to support further study of allowing residences in the Waterfront Central Zone, which includes more than a dozen piers in the heart of the harbor. The recommendation is likely to stir debate, since residential uses have not been allowed since passage of a citizen-initi-
ated referendum to preserve the “working waterfront” in 1987. The referendum led not only to a ban on residential development along the waterfront, but also to banning non-marine uses from the first floor of buildings on wharves. But times have changed, at
least for the commercial fishing industry, and pier owners more than a year ago proposed relaxing the zoning restrictions. The owners said that in order to maintain their piers, many of which are in need of costly repairs, they must be able to generate revenue from non-ma-
rine businesses, including retail shops and restaurants. The Waterfront Central Zone includes properties from Maine Wharf west to Deakes Wharf. The Planning Board has met more than a dozen times during See page 33

Residents say reckless driving plagues outer Washington Avenue By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — Tired of living in fear that vehicles may end up on their lawns – or worse, in their homes – some residents of outer Washington Avenue are lobbying the city for additional traffic control measures. Friends of Washington Avenue North began organizing a few months ago, shortly after a vehicle driving late one Sunday morning left the street, went over the sidewalk, took out a fence, and then hit a telephone pole and a tree. The speed limit on that section of Washington Avenue, which runs parallel to Auburn Street, is posted as 25 miles per hour. “(The car) almost hit a group of boys on their bikes,” said Rick Romano, a leader of the Friends of Washington Av-

enue North. Romano said that during the past year, there have been six accidents along the less-than-mile-long stretch of road. Vehicles hit houses in three of them. “My house was hit by a car about six months ago,” Romano said. “My neighbor had a car flip over onto his front lawn.” Romano and some of his neighbors have put out homemade signs, and have worked with police Officer Andjelko Napijalo, the senior lead officer for the area that includes North Deering. Napijalo has increased patrols along the road and also set up a camera in a tree for a week to track the speed of cars. “I was sitting out there a few days ago
and in one hour issued 10 tickets for traveling 10 to 15 (mph over the speed limit),” Napijalo said Monday night, at a meeting of the North Deering Neighborhood Association. “That’s extreme.” The neighborhood association has met with the friends group a couple of times, and Monday night Romano asked NDNA leaders to bring the issue to City Manager Joe Gray during the monthly meeting he has with leaders of the city’s neighborhood groups. The NDNA did not have a quorum Monday night, and President Tim St. Hilaire said he’d like to see more statistics and studies of other areas in North Deering before voting to go to Gray. But at the urging of other members, St. Hilaire said he would ask for a vote on the issue via e-mail this week. “I think the board members are very concerned,” St. Hilaire said. Napijalo has provided police reports

Parking garage, townhouses added to project in Old Port By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — The developer building a six-story hotel complex on the former Jordan’s Meats property is seeking approval for a 207-space parking garage adjacent to the hotel. Opechee Construction, doing business as Fore India Middle LLC, was approved for 90 surface parking spaces in April as part of its hotel plan. Opechee would now like to build a two-story garage to replace the surface parking with 104 first-floor spots and 103 spots on the second level. The plans submitted to the city Planning Department also include four townhouses along Middle Street, but Opechee President Mark Woglom said last week the townhouses would be built later. “This adds a little more infrastructure,” Woglom said. “We are advancing phase 2.” Phase 1, which is currently being built on the part of the lot bordered by Frank-

lin, Fore and Middle streets, includes a Hampton Inn hotel, top-floor residences and a restaurant. Workers are laying foundation now and Woglom said he expects steel beams will be up in about six weeks. The hotel is expected to open in late spring 2011. The first floor of the proposed parking structure would be for guests of the hotel and residents, and would be accessed from Fore Street. The second story would be available to the public for a fee or as leased parking, and accessible from Middle Street. The developer has indicated that a building may be constructed on top of the parking structure in the future. The Planning Board was expected to
get its initial view of the proposed plans at a workshop meeting Tuesday, July 13, at 3:30 p.m. A public hearing has not been set. The project site used to contain a Jordan’s Meats factory. The vacant building
Public comment sought on proposed wind turbine rules By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Residents on Tuesday, July 20, will get a chance to offer their input on an ordinance being drafted to regulate wind power within the city. The 12-page draft of the Wind Energy Generation Ordinance is the result of several months of discussion by city staff and research into wind ordinances in other Maine towns and the rest of the country, according to City Planner Jean Fraser. The draft sets out a review procedure, noise restrictions and height limits for different zones and areas near landmarks. Landmarks that face stricter design and setback requirements include the Portland Observatory, Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, St. Dominic’s Cathedral, St. Luke’s Cathedral, State Street Church and City Hall. The ordinance would not allow wind turbines in stream protection zones, but would allow turbines of up to 140 feet tall as a conditional use in recreational open spaces and industrial zones, including near the Portland International Jetport. Turbines near the airport would also need the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration. Roof-mounted and free-standing turbines would be allowed in residential zones. Roof-mounted turbines would limited to less than 10 feet above the tallest point on the roof, not to exceed 25 feet.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/62596
The ordinance also attempts to minimize elements that lead to complaints of “Wind Turbine Syndrome.” Shadow flicker from the rotating blades cannot be cast on any residential windows and vibrations must not perceptible, without instruments, at the property line. Other noises from associated structures, such as transformers and substations, cannot exceed 50 decibels at the property line. Turbines of up to 45 feet tall would be permitted in the Waterfront Zone, but an 85-foot tall turbine could be approved as a conditional use. Free-standing turbines of up to 85 feet must be set back from the property line and public rights of way by 1.1 times the total system height. Setbacks from residences and hospitals increase to twice the system height. continued page 34

By Steve Mistler PORTLAND — Several communities contesting portions of a newly proposed federal floodplain zone urged the Federal Emergency Management Agency to delay the adoption process, but agency officials Monday seemed unlikely to alter their plan. In meetings June 12 in South Portland and Portland, officials from South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, Falmouth, Harpswell, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport questioned representatives from FEMA’s Region 1 office in Boston about a new floodplain designation that they said in some instances could impede development or force homeowners to buy expensive flood insurance.

the floodplain, despite their perch atop 30-foot bluffs. According to Tex Hauser, the city planner, water “from a tsunami” couldn’t reach those homes. But, Gailey said, South Portland has waited to make its case while FEMA worked through its issues with Portland. “Portland is the state’s largest city, I understand that,” he said. “But I kind of feel like we’ve been (put on the back burner). I’ve taken offense to that.” Gailey said Gerber submitted his South Portland report to FEMA several months ago, but hasn’t received much of a response. Mike Geotz, from FEMA’s Region 1 branch, told South Portland officials that the agency had been immersed in the Portland case. “That was a complicated situation in Portland Harbor,” he said. “That took a lot of time and resources.” Goetz’s response prompted concern from Gerber, and later other community officials, who worried that the agency can’t handle the other appeal cases. Geotz later tried to assure them the agency would fully address all appeals. Later, when pressed to delay the appeal period during the Portland meeting at the Ocean Gateway terminal, FEMA officials said they couldn’t do so because it could delay adoption of the new maps for another year. Larry Mead, town manager of Kennebunkport, said two-thirds of property owners would be impacted by the proposed flood zone, a 50 percent increase. Mead said he had no problem delaying adoption of the maps because it would give FEMA more time to get them right. “Everybody’s affected,” he said. “It’s a big deal.” But FEMA’s David Mendelsohn said the agency is compelled to move forward because the maps identify additional flood risk. “Should we hold that information back?” he said. “Maybe we’ll get lucky and there won’t be another storm?” The agency’s stance on risk awareness appeared at odds with the situation in Falmouth, where the agency opted not to conduct updated floodplain analysis. Gerber, who was hired by Falmouth to review FEMA’s data, said Monday that his models actually showed portions of the town that should be included in the flood zone, but aren’t in FEMA’s updated continued page 34

Coastal Falmouth connection to northbound Maine Turnpike closes for a year By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — The on-ramp from the Falmouth spur to the northbound Maine Turnpike is closed for approximately a year during replacement of the Presumpscot River Bridge. Other ramps, including the southbound turnpike on-ramp and northbound offramp at Exit 52 are open during construction. The $6.5 million bridge replacement project is designed to improve motorist safety by widening the bridge and adding shoulders.
The spur connects the turnpike with Interstate 295 and Route 1, near Bucknam Road. Approximately 1,500 vehicles use the northbound turnpike ramp each day, compared to 3,600 who use the southbound on-ramp. “If we left it open, we would have construction workers, two lanes of turnpike traffic and on-ramp traffic trying to merge, all in the same place,” said Dan Paradee of the Maine Turnpike Authority. “It would be an unsafe situation.” Paradee said no detour has been marked because motorists who typically
use the ramp come from a wide variety of places. He suggested those coming from downtown Portland go south and use the Maine Mall Road interchange from Interstate 295 to get on the turnpike. “We took two cars and tested how long it took to go south on I-295 , then north on the turnpike, instead of taking the Falmouth spur,” Paradee said. “It was almost exactly the same amount of time.” MTA is recommending drivers coming from Falmouth take local roads to Exit 53 in West Falmouth.
Paradee said MTA made sure it finished work on the Route 100 bridge at Exit 53 before closing the Falmouth spur at Exit 52. He also suggested motorists could use exits 46, 47, or 48. There may, however, be some closure overlap when construction at Exit 48 begins in February. “People may have to go to Exit 47 then, which is one more mile away,” Paradee said.

News briefs Firefighters extinguish blaze at marina PORTLAND — Firefighters responded to a smoky blaze at the Maine Yacht Center around noon Monday. The fire appeared to start near a fuel pump station at the bottom of the main access ramp to the floating docks and slips, which were full of boats. Firefighters aimed hoses at a spot spewing brown smoke, and some flames could be seen under the dock, although the fire was under control within half an hour of the Fire Department’s response.
The center, at 100 Kensington St., has a marina as well as a service center and boat storage facility. There were no initial reports of damage to any boats. The cause of the fire was still being determined.

Add a dash of irreverence and a pinch of biology, but hold the extra sugar This week I’m pleased to introduce two new faces at The Forecaster: Sandi Amorello and Victoria Fischman. Amorello, a Cape Elizabeth resident, is the latest addition to our Opinion pages. If you’re familiar with her website, irreverentwidow.com, you have some idea of what to expect from Sandi; if you’ve never heard of her, here’s how she describes herself: “ ... Along with being an Editor’s artist, I’m also an eternal optimist and nothing seems to stop me from inevitably rediscovering the things that have always brought me joy: Collecting sentimental vintage stuff. Making art. Telling stories. And making people smile.” But as the name of her column (“No Sugar Added”) suggests, don’t expect Sandi to sugar coat anything. She is a straightshooting, call-’em-as-sheMo Mehlsak sees-’em type, whose expectations and outlook were turned upside-down when her husband died 7 1/2 years ago. Sandi is a single mother of three who runs a business in Portland and brings a unique voice to our pages – a voice textured by, as Sandi says, “an overabundance of experience surrounding loss, unexpected change, widowhood, single parenting, mid-life dating ... and
recovering from life’s little surprises.” She’ll make you smile, but her wit, candor, insight and honesty will also make you think. Victoria Fischman is our other new face. Readers may recognize her name, too: Vic, as her friends call her, is our summer intern and has already written several stories, including last week’s piece about Portland Adult Education’s celebration of cultural diversity. But Fischman was in The Forecaster long before she ever had a byline. Two and a half years ago, Vic, her sister Elizabeth and father Dr. Larry Fischman were featured in a story about their life-changing experience helping to build a school in the village of Kessana, in the west African country of Mali. “The villagers were overwhelmingly nice to us,” Vic, then a senior at Yarmouth High School, told reporter Amy Anderson in January 2008. “We met the chief, the oldest man in the village. He was 104 and couldn’t move, but he gave us a blessing. It was very meaningful for us.” Vic is now a junior at Stanford University, where she is president of the women’s club lacrosse team (she played on two state championship teams at Yarmouth, where she was a Western Maine Conference All Star and Academic All-American). Her summer at The Forecaster is made possible by the Pat and Rowland Rebele Internship program, which recognizes the importance of journalism and well-rounded journalists.

“I am amazed at the response!” When Bruce Bohrmann of Bohrmann Knives in Yarmouth decided to advertise a special production of his new knives with handles made from Yarmouth’s beloved elm tree, Herbie, he turned to The Forecaster. “I’m amazed at the response. One order came from a man from Florida who was up for his daughter’s graduation from Bowdoin. I want to keep the momentum going so run the ad again.” With readership from Scarborough to Wiscasset in 69,500 papers every week, The Forecaster is a cost-effective way to put your business in front our local readers.

The way to this woman’s heart is through your refrigerator Ever since the day in early June that I was asked to write for The Forecaster, I’ve been drifting off to sleep each evening, fully expecting to bolt upright at 2:30 a.m., awakened by some divinely inspired idea for this, my No Sugar first column. Alas, while I am thrilled to tell you that I am indeed awake and typing this at 2:36 a.m., I am also here to report that I am not currently channeling anything brilliant from the queen of all columnists, Erma Bombeck. Nor from my late husband, Drew. Although I’m rather certain they are hanging out together in the afterlife, sending me love and good Sandi Amorello wishes on the occasion of my debut in this newspaper, apparently, as far as content goes, I’m on my own. This was not my plan. I was supposed to be the beneficiary of some divine inspiration. But when do things go as we plan? I mean, really, does anyone’s life ever go the way they plan? Mine certainly hasn’t. One day you’re going along, trying to survive the usual challenges of raising three little children with the man you’ve loved forever. Your marriage isn’t perfect, but it’s perfect for you: filled with laughter, creativity, love and the intermittent longing
for the days when you were childless and had time for sex. The next day, you’re logged onto match.com at 1 a.m., fielding e-mails from men who want to drink merlot on the beach and give you a back rub. Men with screen names (that they chose on purpose) like “Desperate4U” and “BetrayedAgain.” Men who might have restraining orders against them. Men who are not your husband. As Gandhi said, “Were it not for a sense of humor, I would have long ago committed suicide.” I love Gandhi. Were he alive and well and on an Internet dating site, I’d go for a decaf latte with him in a second. I’ve been doing this widowhood thing (reluctantly) for seven years now. There have been times when I’ve wished I were six feet under, with Drew. There have been times when I’ve entertained thoughts of selling my children. There have been times I’ve felt oddly blessed to have learned firsthand that we can’t take love or life for granted – so we’d best stop caring what other people think of us, speak our truths and follow our passions. I’m an artist, writer, speaker – and a Girl Scout dropout. Shocking, I know. I share my stories of love, life, death, mid-life dating and single parenting because, well, it would be a sin not to. My hope is that you will at some point read some tidbit that will put a smile on your face, bring a tear to your eye, or make you laugh so hard that your chocolate milk comes shooting out of your nose. Maybe you’ll read something that will make you feel more connected. Maybe I’ll write something you’ve wanted to say, but didn’t. Or couldn’t. Or perhaps you’ll think this is a column about diabetes and be left wondering, WTH?
Don’t tell anyone, but my ultimate fantasy is that at some point you’ll get out your scissors, and one of my columns will grace your refrigerator. Next to your grocery shopping list. Or your fourth-grader’s spelling test. Or, if you’re anything like me, next to a magnet that says, “I know what turns women on” and features a handsome man at a kitchen sink, sporting an apron and washing dishes. I think we live in amazing times. I think my MacBook is fabulous. I love having my blog and my website. And the fact that people can connect with me from halfway around the world via the Internet still makes me giddy. But truth be told, the thought of my words on a sheet of newsprint, dangling precariously from your refrigerator door, is what makes my heart go pitter-patter. I embrace and appreciate the wonders of technology, but I’m a sentiComment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/62608
mental girl at heart. I still like words on paper. Newspapers. Books. Love letters. Call me an anarchist. If Drew and Erma (and Gandhi) were still alive, I’d like to think they’d deem me “fridge-worthy.” I am thrilled to be here. Thanks for having me.

Fireworks! July 4th, Eastern Promenade, Portland, Maine By Martin Steingesser Before the brilliant images fade, the way fireworks do almost the moment they explode, a kind of cotton candy for the eyes, image like flavor evaporating almost on perception, I want to capture some of what happened at Portland’s Fourth of July fireworks celebration. One moment I especially want to hold on to. When all our family’s activity, a kind-of-drive to busyness, almost out of fear of stillness and what might be found in it: my daughter on her Blackberry, one grandson reading a book or text-messaging, and, of course, the youngest grandson, for whom perpetual motion is natural, his unstoppable 5-year-old curiosity and energy, one moment asking a seamless stream of questions – “Why do boats float? How do spiders know how to make a web?” – the next moment interpreting the world for us –”The water from my bathtub goes into the sea, it does! When the Sun comes up, it’s light blue, lighter blue, lighter blue, lighter blue ... That’s what happens!” – his chatter like the song of a mockingbird – all of us in motion like this on a scrap of blanket, except my wife, all serene attention before the darkening sky, before us a galaxy of boat lights on Casco Bay, all around endless meadows of people the length of the Eastern Promenade – all this dropped away when the first rocket burst, raining streams of fire and light, the Portland Symphony playing the finale to the 1812 Overture. For the next half hour, blooming forms high against the night hold us, hold the attention and breath of most of Portland. Yet what lives in me luminously aren’t fireworks but another moment for its stillness, the way perhaps the deep silence of seeds hold their own gardens of Peonies, Chrysanthemums, Glittering Palms, Dahlias ... The day before the Fourth, I was stopped by the photograph of a friend lounging on a plush couch, his twins, 3 or 4 years old, asleep in his arms, and I felt the loss of such boundary-less, intimate moments with my own daughter, now more than 40 years past the age of the twins in the photograph. When she looked up to the night sky to see Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/62704
the first rocket burst above, she seemed to forget herself, leaned back to watch the fireworks, unselfconsciously resting against me, her head on my shoulder a way I hadn’t experienced since her childhood. My wife rested along the other side, her head on that shoulder. The 5-year-old also lay back, stretching across my stomach, the other grandson, 15, just beyond reach, the four of us together like that, without boundaries, in a way I no longer imagined I could hold them all so close at the same time. Afterword: Life is not unlike the trajectory of a rocket and certainly has the velocity of one when with a 5-yearold. Beware of what shines, what glows in the dark. Excited by his first fireworks, enthralled, a little worried – “Are they fire? Will they reach us?” – he bit into one of President - David Costello Publisher - Karen Rajotte Wood Editor - Mo Mehlsak Sports Editor - Michael Hoffer Staff Reporters - Amy Anderson, Randy Billings, Kate Bucklin, Alex Lear, Steve Mistler, Emily Parkhurst News Assistant - Heather Gunther Intern - Victoria Fischman Contributing Photographers - Michael Barriault, Natalie Conn, Paul Cunningham, Roger S.

How to be a grandmother When baby Jackson, our first grandchild, arrived July 1 at 4:14 a.m., I was asleep in the back of the car in the hospital parking lot and Carolyn was in the delivery room with Hannah. She called me on my cell phone to let me know I was a grandfather. Bleary-eyed, I stumbled out of the car and up to the dimly lit delivery room. Hannah was exhausted. Her husband, Chris, was beaming. Little Jackson, pink and naked, looked to me like a newborn Dustin Pedroia. Three nurses in blue scrubs were taking care of postpartum business. But I couldn’t take my eyes off Carolyn. Even though she had The Universal been up all night supporting Hannah and Chris through the labor-anddelivery process, Carolyn was serene and beautiful. The way she smiled at the baby almost made me jealous. She is going to be a great grandmother, as was her mother before her. By the time our grandson is up and about, I hope I’ll still be able to Edgar Allen Beem take him to a few ballgames, but Carolyn, younger and much more fit than I, will surely take him on long walks, known in the family as “forced marches,” during which she will teach him to pick berries, identify birds and flowers, and find turtles and frogs. She’ll read stories to him, as she did to our daughters, and she may even teach him to bake pies, a rare and invaluable skill for a boy. One thing I’m sure of though: Jackson Blackburn will eventually come to understand that his Grandmother Beem is a strong, capable, accomplished woman worthy of his respect and admiration, as well as his love. Like little Jackson, I was the firstborn of my generation the first grandchild. My own grandmothers were distinctly different people, but they both knew how to be grandmothers. Nana Beem was a bit of a goofball, as much a buddy as a granny, a co-conspirator in the cold war against adult seriousness. She had a drawer full of jokes such
those flexible plastic light sticks sold as July 4th souvenirs, leaped to his feet and, at the finale of the Portland Symphony’s “America the Beautiful” and culminating crescendo of the fireworks display, threw up in our midst. “Only mildly toxic,” a calming voice at Poison Control assured his mother. “Just go on and enjoy your evening.” He’d spit out the small amount that had gotten into his
as folding knifes, whoopie cushions, hollow spoons and a plastic ice cube with a fly in it. She was a lousy cook, routinely turning vegetables and pastas to mush. She kept her refrigerator stocked with Popsicles and Coca-Cola. She wore slacks and smocks and orthopedic shoes for her arthritic feet. After my grandfather died, she kept pictures of Elvis and Jamie Wyeth on the mantelpiece along with the family photos. She read the lurid Boston Herald. She never learned to drive. Good-natured and light-hearted, Nana Beem signed all her cards and letters “Love & Laughter.” And she spoke a language that sometimes seemed all her own. She would often say “neffen-heffen” when she agreed with you. German? Dutch? Not sure. And if she didn’t think something was good for you, she’d tell you it would give you “heebie jeebies and gongoolus.” Nana Gibson was the most dignified person I ever knew. Every inch a lady, she was always impeccably dressed. She wore dresses always, never skirts and certainly not slacks. She had an erect, proper, matronly bearing. Her hair was snow white and tightly coiffed. She was a great cook and a splendid baker. She kept her freezer stocked with homemade pies that were often several years old before she baked them for us. A widow from the time I was 2, she lived alone in one of the four apartments in the house she owned on High Street in Portland. An independent woman, she sold greeting cards to supplement her retirement and rental income. When I brought my mother a snapshot of Hannah’s baby, she said, “So that makes me a great-grandmother.” And looking over at the family photographs on the shelf, she observed that Nana Gibson would be Jackson’s great-great-grandmother and that her Grandmother Morrison would be his great-great-great grandmother. Six generations within her living memory – her grandmother, her mother, herself, Carolyn, Hannah and Jackson. Welcome to the family, Jack. The men-folk may leave a bit to be desired, but you won’t find finer women anywhere. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

mouth; but, “Bitter! Bitter!” he said. I told him I thought some chocolate ice cream would help, as we joined the crowds filling Congress Street on our way home. “It would,” he said, a sureness in his inflection.

Sports Roundup Page 17
Spring 2010 Male & Female Athletes of the Year By Michael Hoffer As usual, selecting the top male and female spring athletes from each school was a challenge, more so in some cases than in others. While coaches and athletic directors were consulted, the ultimate decision was mine, based on seeing all or part of 88 sporting events since mid-April. The following athletes weren’t always the most prolific performers or even necessarily in the spotlight, but I feel that each of them helped elevate their respective teams to greatness. Congratulations to all of the winners!
Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year JACK TERWILLIGER, Junior—Track • SMAA All-Conference, first team, mile • SMAA All-Conference, first team, two-mile • Team MVP After a frustrating year, Jack Terwilliger enjoyed a happy ending. After finally overcoming a throat condition that affected his breathing for months, Terwilliger was at his best at the big meets, winning the mile and two-mile at the conference chamTerwilliger pionships, then finishing runner-up to otherworldly Brunswick standout Will Geoghegan in the same events at states. Terwilliger then stole the show at the Nationals, winning the emerging elite two-mile. For being pretty impressive, even when he wasn’t at his best, then for finishing strong, Jack Terwilliger is The Forecaster’s
selection as Cheverus’ Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year. Terwilliger started running in middle school and has long made his presence felt with the Stags, winning 2008 Fall Male Athlete of the Year honors in cross country. After up-and-down cross country and indoor seasons this school year, Terwilliger learned from a specialist that he had a throat problem and once it was addressed, he returned to form. Terwilliger ended the regular season with victories in the mile in a city meet and the mile and two-mile in a county meet. At the SMAA championships, he took the mile in 4 minutes, 25.38 seconds and the two-mile in 9:35.73. He also was part of a victorious 3,200 relay squad. At states, Terwilliger ran the mile in 4:15.60 (three seconds behind Geoghegan) and the twomile in 9:27.75 (a second-anda-half behind Geoghegan). He also teamed with Taylor Dundas, Tim Woods and Andrew Snyder to set a new state record in the 3,200 relay (7:54.32). Terwilliger came in ninth in the mile at New Englands (4:15.60), then turned heads at nationals. Now that he’s back to 100 percent, don’t be surprised if Terwilliger is a three-season force in 2010-11. He’s already garnered plenty of college interest and figures to have several top schools to choose from. Before he goes on to glory at the next level, however, local fans will get one last chance to witness the greatness of Jack Terwilliger, Cheverus’ Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year. Coach Bruce Bickford’s comment: “He started out rough, but straightened things out and started flying again. From where he came from to his races at the end of the season, he was my team MVP. He’s a kid who can go sub-9:10 next year. It wouldn’t surprise me if he has the state’s fastest two-mile time. I don’t set expectations for him. I just know he’ll run well.” 2009 winner: Mick DiStasio (baseball) 2008 winner: Topher Pochebit (lacrosse) 2007 winner: Todd Keneborus (baseball) 2006 winner: Michael Antoniou (lacrosse) 2005 winner: Ben Michaud (track) 2004 winner: Ben Michaud (track)
Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year: THERESA HENDRIX, Senior—Softball • Miss Maine Softball finalist • SMAA Player of the Year • SMAA Offensive Player of the Year • SMAA All-Conference, first team • SMAA All-Academic team If it’s spring, Theresa Hendrix has to be dominating for the Cheverus softball team. That certainly proved to be the case again in 2010 as Hendrix’s arm and potent bat helped the Stags post another solid record and make the playoffs. From setting the table on offense to shutting down the opposition from Hendrix the mound, Hendrix capped her superb high school career in style and once again earned plenty of postseason acclaim. In that light, The Forecaster is happy to name Theresa Hendrix as Cheverus’ Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year, marking the third year in a row she’s been honored. Hendrix grew up in Scarborough and has long been a softball standout. She also made her mark in field hockey and basketball with the Stags. After earning all-conference honorable mention as a sophomore and second team mention as a junior, this spring, she enjoyed many, many highlights. It all began with her first atbat, at McAuley, when she went deep. Hendrix hit a home run in her first at-bat the next game too, against visiting Sanford, then hit for the cycle and fanned nine in earning the victory. She tripled, singled and struck out 10 in a one-hitter against Deering, had four hits, including a home run, scored five times and drove in four versus Westbrook, scored four times, drove in three and threw a one-hit shutout against Windham, fanned 14 versus Noble, tripled twice, scored three times, stole two bases and blanked Marshwood, doubled and tripled in a win over Gorham, doubled, tripled, scored twice, drove in three runs and threw four no-hit innings against Massabesic, had four hits, including a pair
of doubles and a triple in a loss at Thornton Academy and had three hits and scored three times against Biddeford. The biggest thrill of the season came May 25, when Hendrix shut down defending state champion Scarborough for a 5-1 victory, the Stags’ first against the Red Storm. She capped the regular season by beating Bonny Eagle behind nine strikeouts, while adding a pair of hits, scoring twice and adding three steals. In total, Hendrix hit .651 with 10 doubles, six triples, six home runs and 26 RBI, with 37 runs scored. Her on-base percentage was .662 and she slugged 1.286. On the mound, she finished 11-4 with a 2.16 ERA, fanning 119 in 92.2 innings. Hendrix was an first team allconference selection, the SMAA Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year and wound up one of two finalists for the prestigious Miss Maine Softball Award, which was won by Bangor’s Samantha Bedore. Hendrix is spending the summer playing ASA ball with the Southern Maine Flame U-18 squad and will attend Nyack College in New York, a Division II school, next year, where she plans to study education and figures to add a new chapter to her legend on the diamond. One of the school’s finest female athletes to date has departed, but won’t soon be forgotten. Theresa Hendrix, Cheverus’ Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year, capped her career in glorious style. Coach Amy McMullin’s comment: “Theresa is the hardest working and most dedicated athlete I have ever coached. She has such motivation and drive. There are not too many kids who will wake up at 5 a.m. every morning to work out, then pitch before school even starts. She always comes through when we need her. She will accept nothing but being the best, which is one of her best qualities. I’m really going to miss her. She has done so much for the program, the school, and the Cheverus community.” 2009 winner: Theresa Hendrix (softball) 2008 winner: Theresa Hendrix (softball) 2007 winner: Dana Proscia (lacrosse) 2006 winner: Dana Proscia (lacrosse) 2005 winner: Meaghan Morris (track) 2004 winner: Kate McLaughlin (track)
Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year: SAM BALZANO, Junior—Baseball • SMAA All-Conference, first team, outfield • SMAA All-Defensive team If Sam Balzano’s unrivaled speed, defensive brilliance and excellence with the bat weren’t enough to make opposing coaches and players sweat, he added a new repertoire to his game this spring: pitching. While his time on the mound was limited, Balzano made his presence felt. Along with his other skills, he helped the Deering Balzana baseball juggernaut stay among the top teams in Western A. Balzano led the league in stolen bases and runs scored, was named to two separate all-conference teams and is just getting better. Mix all that with the fact that he’s a top student, a great teammate and a hard worker, The Forecaster is naming Sam Balzano as Deering’s Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year. Balzano grew up in Portland, began his baseball days in T-ball and came to Deering and swung up to varsity as a freshman as the Rams were en route to a second straight Class A title. As a sophomore, Balzano played a bigger role on another champion, but his junior year would truly be special. Highlights included two walks, a hit and a steal in a loss to Cheverus in the opener (Balzano took the loss on the mound, which snapped the Rams’ 50-game win streak), a steal, run scored and an RBI against Noble, two steals and three runs scored against Marshwood, two hits, a run, steal and RBI against Kennebunk, two steals and two runs scored versus Portland, two hits against Sanford, two runs scored versus Massabesic, a home run, steal and three runs scored against

Athletes of the year from page 13 Thornton Academy, two steals and a run against Windham, two hits against South Portland, a double, RBI and run scored versus Gorham, three runs, two hits, a steal and an RBI against Scarborough and a steal and two runs scored in the regular season finale against Cheverus. In the playoffs, Balzano had a double, triple and a relief stint in a 4-1 quarterfinal round victory over Cheverus. Deering’s reign ended in the semifinals with a narrow loss to Westbrook, but Balzano bowed out with a double. For the season, Balzano had a .396 average, was sixth in the league with a .531 onbase percentage, was first in runs (23) and steals (15) and tied for first in walks (12),
He also had a pair of doubles, a home run and eight RBI as the quintessential leadoff man who always had the green light to run. On the mound, he finished 3-2 with a 2.75 earned run average. Balzano was named first team allconference and was also named to the AllDefensive team. Balzano is spending the summer playing for the always strong Nova Seafood American Legion squad. He played football through his junior year (he’ll play fall baseball through Frozen Ropes this autumn) and will continue to run indoor track next winter. Who knows what he’ll add to his game between now and next baseball season. Sam Balzano, Deering’s Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year, has done a little of everything and done it with flair.

Coach Mike Coutts’ comment: “Sam is a pleasure to be around. He works hard and tries to get better. I’ve never seen him without a smile on his face. When he gets on base, we have a chance to win. He really changes the game with his speed. He’s turned himself into a really good hitter who can drive the ball into the gaps. On defense, he just catches the ball. He can run them down with the best of them.” 2009 winner: Regan Flaherty (baseball) 2008 winner: Taylor Candage (baseball) 2007 winner: Matt Watson (baseball) 2006 winner: Adam Rothbart (lacrosse) 2005 winner: Neall Oliver (tennis) 2004 winner: Ryan Reid (baseball) Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year: JULIE PALLOZZI, Senior—Lacrosse • SMAA All-Conference, honorable mention • Senior All-Star

Julie Pallozzi came a long way in her four years as varsity goalie for the Deering girls’ lacrosse team. Overwhelmed as the only freshman on the varsity squad, she quickly gained confidence and emerged as one of the finest in her position. Pallozzi closed her Rams career in style, enjoying several games where
she singlehandedly held the opposition at bay. While Deering failed to make the playoffs, she turned heads throughout with her heroic efforts. For finishing in style, being a rock and being the type of player that who made everyone better, Julie Pallozzi gets The Pallozzi Forecaster’s nod as Deering’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year. Pallozzi grew up in Portland and didn’t play lacrosse until her freshman year when coach Andrew Gordon talked her into trying the sport at the goalie position. She took to it quickly, went to a clinic at the University of Southern Maine her junior year and had a solid senior season. Highlights included 22 saves in a fourovertime tie versus Windham in the opener, 18 against Kennebunk. 27 versus Cheverus, 16 against Biddeford, 12 versus Gardiner and. 18 against Portland. For the year, Pallozzi made 222 saves, 79 percent of the shots she faced. In addition to being a rock in the cage, Pallozzi kept her teammates loose with her

Athletes of the year from page 14 bubbly personality. She wound up making the all-conference team and leading her squad to victory (on her homefield) in the Senior All-Star Game. Pallozzi, who also ran cross country, played ice hockey and belonged to Student Senate at Deering, likes riding horses, has already taken some classes at USM, works at DiMillo’s and after deferring for a year (she hopes to go to Brazil), will attend the University of New England to study medical biology. She wants to someday be a physical therapist. She may play lacrosse at UNE as well. If so, it certainly won’t be a difficult adjustment. Julie Pallozzi, Deering’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year, has shown she’s up to any challenge and has an awful lot of fun conquering them. Coach Andrew Gordon’s comment: “Julie was a joy to coach, always positive with a dry sense of humor, who led by example. I think what made her stand out were her desire and ability to improve and learn every year and in particular, her calm and composed demeanor in her position. She single-handedly won us at least one game this year. She made some incredible saves in the Portland game.” 2009 winner: Melissa Bell (Softball) 2008 winner: Lesley Warn (softball) 2007 winner: Chelsea Johnson (lacrosse) 2006 winner: Kate Bustin (softball) 2005 winner: Lesley Warn (softball) 2004 winner: Gina Axelson (softball)
Bryant’s highlights included two hits in the win over Cheverus, two hits versus Bonny Eagle, three hits and an RBI against Sanford, a three-run homer versus Deering, four hits and two steals in a 25-0 domination of Windham and two hits and an RBI in the playoff loss to the Red Riots. Bryant led the Bryant SMAA with 29 hits, batted .526 for the season and led the Lions with 21 runs scored and eight steals, stats that were good enough to get her named to the all-conference team. Bryant, who plays first base, is also a striker on the soccer team, participates in the Varsity, Key and Ambassadors Clubs
and plays centerfield with the Frozen Ropes U-18 ASA team. She hopes to play softball in college. The Lions are glad she still has two years of high school ball remaining. Shelby Bryant, McAuley’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year, has all the skills and helped her team make an amazing leap. Coach Robbie Ferrante’s comment: “Shelby was our spark plug and was a big part of our success. If she got on base, we were successful. She came to play every day. She loves to play.” 2009 winner: Erin Woodbury (tennis) 2008 winner: Katelyn Call (softball) 2007 winner: Abby Iselborn (track) 2006 winner: Abby Iselborn (track) 2005 winner: Abby Iselborn (track) 2004 winner: Maureen Wark (lacrosse and track)

Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year: SHELBY BRYANT, Sophomore—Softball • SMAA All-Conference, first team While the McAuley softball’s team unexpected and thrilling rise featured myriad contributors, one player was usually the catalyst. Shelby Bryant, a leadoff hitter extraordinaire, propelled the Lions’ offensive attack, getting key hits and stealing bases. She also played solid defense and helped her team boast its best-ever record and make a stunning run to the playoffs. For emerging as a top threat and for helping her team become the feel-good story of the season, Shelby Bryant gets The Forecaster’s nod as McAuley’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year. Bryant lives in South Portland and started playing softball in seventh grade. As a freshman at McAuley, she and her teammates struggled to a 4-12 record, but everything was different this spring. The Lions began the year with an astonishing 13-12 come-from-behind over Cheverus (scoring nine times in their final at-bat), captured 10 of their first 11 contest and wound up 11-5 before dropping a hard-fought 6-4 decision at eventual state champion South Portland in the quarterfinals.

Athletes of the year from page 15 show that Caleb Kenney put on the night of June 1 won’t soon be forgotten. Looking to help the defending Class A champion Bulldogs complete a surprise undefeated regular season, Kenney was a human highlight reel against formidable Scarborough, scoring 10 times as Portland won, 16-12. If that was all Kenney did this season it would be remarkable, but he was a yearKenney long force, helping the Bulldogs bridge from one championship era to the next and was a tremendous leader as Portland got within two goals of repeating as state champion. In light of his many memorable performances and the way he carried himself on and off the field, Caleb Kenney is The Forecaster’s choice as Portland’s Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year.
Kenney grew up in Portland and started playing lacrosse in the seventh grade. He followed in the footsteps of his brother Dylan, Class of 2009. He started one game as a freshman and saw ample playing time as the Bulldogs cruised to their first championship last year. This season, Kenney was one of the most unstoppable offensive forces in the state of Maine, scoring a team-high 52 goals and 80 points. He was second on the squad with 28 assists. He led the team with 114 ground balls and even won five of the six faceoffs in which he took part. Long before he was rewriting the record books in the finale, Kenney was making his presence felt. He had seven goals versus Kennebunk, seven against Massabesic, three goals against Marshwood, four goals, five assists and a bone-rattling hit (immortalized on YouTube) in a come-from-behind victory at Lewiston, two goals and three assists against Messalonskee and four first half goals in a rout of Deering. Then came the Scarborough game. In the postseason, the Bulldogs were the top seed in Eastern A and Kenney
continued to dazzle, scoring twice (with an assist and nine ground balls) in a win over Lewiston in the semifinals and six times in a regional final victory over Messalonskee. Prior to a rematch with Scarborough in the state finale, Portland’s season took a tragic turn when injured sophomore Garrett Cormier was killed in an auto accident. The Bulldogs, with heavy hearts, gave the Red Storm all they had in the state game, but Scarborough did a much more effective job neutralizing Kenney, holding him to three goals, in an 8-6 victory. Kenney is also a linebacker and fullback on Portland’s football team and is primed for a huge senior season in that sport, as well as lacrosse. He’s a member of the school’s Executive Board and takes part in peer-to-peer tutoring. He’s playing lacrosse this summer and works for a realtor in Falmouth. He wants to play lacrosse in college and is beginning the selection process. Rest assured, he’ll have a ton of interest. After his season of excellence, Caleb Kenney, Portland’s Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year, has earned his spot as one of the state’s elite talents.

Coach Eric Begonia’s comment: “Caleb has earned the respect of his team with his play and positive leadership style. Although his numbers speak for themselves, he is as unselfish a player as you could ask for. He practices as hard as he plays in games and sets the standard level of effort that we expect others to strive to. His size, strength and pure athleticism, along with his high lacrosse IQ, have made him a dominant player on offense as well as defense. He’s tireless, very competitive and motivated.” 2009 winner: K.R.

Moran was able to shine time after time this year, beating all but one difficult opponent in leading the Bulldogs to yet another stellar campaign. For making the most of her limited time with the sport, for facing every challenge head-on and for helping the Bulldogs Moran remain a team to be reckoned with, Mary Moran convinced The Forecaster to select her as Portland’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year. Moran grew up in Windham, but didn’t get into tennis until the eighth grade. In high school, she did a little of everything, competing in doubles as a freshman and sophomore before moving up to the second singles spot as a junior, helping the Bulldogs reach the state final for the first time in program history. After devoting a lot of time to developing her game in the winter, Moran was almost unbeatable as a senior. She won every regular season match but one (losing to Gorham standout Natalie Egbert) and was only stretched to three sets on two other occasions. In the singles tournament, she reached the Round of 16 before being

from page 16 ousted by Egbert. In the playoffs, she beat her South Portland and Scarborough counterparts in straight sets in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively, but against nemesis Egbert in the regional final, Moran lost, 4-6, 4-6, and the Bulldogs were stunned by the Rams, 3-2. Moran, who also played soccer and was a member of Executive Board at Portland high, trains with Tim Lacombe at Racket and Fitness. She will attend Bates College in the fall, will definitely play soccer and maybe tennis, while studying psychology. More great things figure to be on her horizon. After an impressive high school career, capped by a superb senior campaign, Mary Moran, Portland’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year, leaves quite a legacy in her wake. Coach Bonnie Moran’s comment: “Mary is extremely hardworking and dedicated. She’s an encouraging and positive teammate and so much fun to be around. She is a natural athlete who can pick up the technical and strategic aspects of a sport very quickly. Although she is very competitive and approaches each match with determination, she is able to handle wins and losses with equal grace. She’s made tremendous progress and would love to be able to play in college.” 2009 winner: Maggie Swann (tennis) 2008 winner: Liz Mosley (lacrosse) 2007 winner: Jasmine Powell (track) 2006 winner: Katie Hutchins (softball) 2005 winner: Kelly Flaherty (lacrosse) 2004 winner: Lily Anderson (lacrosse)
Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year: BRANDON THOMPSON, Junior—Tennis • State singles champion • WMC All-Conference, first team The legacy of Brandon Thompson continues to grow. In three high school seasons, he’s led Waynflete to Class C championships every year. He added a singles state title this spring and has become not only the best player in the state, but one who is highly respected by teammate and foe alike. One also who will be highly coveted at the next level. All of those factors convinced The Forecaster to name Brandon Thompson Waynflete’s Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year, marking the third year in a row he’s been honored. Thompson started playing tennis at the age of eight and immediately made his mark at the high school level. He stepped right into the top singles role as a freshman and made it to the singles final (losing to Mt. Ararat’s Mike Hill) while helping the Flyers win the state title. Deja vu was in store his sophomore year as he again lost to Hill, but led Waynflete to the Class C
pinnacle. This time around, no one could stop him. Thompson won all eight of his regular season matches in straight sets, dropping only 20 games in the process. In the singles tournament, he lost only 16 games in beating every foe in straight sets, including teammate Patrick Thompson Ordway in the final. In the team playoffs, Thompson losing only one game in three straight set victories. Thompson will compete in tournaments over the summer and can expect to hear from a lot of interested colleges in the months to come. He’s likely to go somewhere warmer, where he can play outdoors for a longer period of time. It’s hard to imagine what’s next for Thompson to conquer. He’s already won everything there is to win at the high school level. Just make sure you enjoy him while you still can as he looks to cap his dominant career with more glory next year. Based on his resume to date, continued excellence is a certainty for Brandon
Thompson, Waynflete’s Spring 2010 Male Athlete of the Year. Coach Jeff Madore’s comment: “Brandon is a really coachable kid. He’s very intelligent, but also very modest and reserved. He sets a great example with his sportsmanship and respect for the opposition on and off the court. He faced a lot of expectations

transitioning without rival and producing a scoring touch that opposing goalies could only flail away at helplessly. Woodhouse was at her best on the biggest stage, winding up as arguably the state’s best female player. In light of all of her accomplishments this Woodhouse spring, combined with her sensational career, it was easy for The Forecaster to name Morgan Woodhouse Waynflete’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year. Woodhouse has spent her whole academic career at Waynflete and captured athletic headlines throughout her four high school years. On the pitch in the fall, Woodhouse scored countless pivotal goals, led the Flyers to a Class C championship and two other regional finals. In the winter, she emerged as one of the state’s finest post players on the hardwood, helping unheralded Waynflete reach the Western C Final

in both her junior and senior seasons. Although lacrosse isn’t her top sport, she was a natural, and played an integral role on the 2008 and 2009 state titlists. This spring, she excelled virtually every time out, scoring three times against NYA, four times against Yarmouth, five (with four assists) versus Cheverus, four times against Kennebunk, four at Yarmouth and four in a season-ending home loss to NYA. The biggest thrill came May 12 in a 15-5 win at Falmouth, when, on her 18th birthday, Woodhouse had seven goals. She also won 18 of 20 draws in a win at Cape Elizabeth. In the playoffs, Woodhouse had five goals against Wells in the semifinals and led her team with two in the state game loss to NYA. For the season, Woodhouse had 51 goals and 27 assists. She was named an All-American for the second consecutive season. She takes her show to Bowdoin College next year, but won’t be forgotten at a certain small private school in the West End. Morgan Woodhouse, Waynflete’s Spring 2010 Female Athlete of the Year, has set the
standard for superb performance. Coach Cathie Connors’ comment: ”Morgan is a natural team leader and an exceptional role model for younger players. She was crucial all over the field for us. She’s an accomplished athlete, but always remains modest and humble. I’m sure her name will be brought up for years to come.” 2009 winner: Christine Ordway (tennis) 2008 winner; Laura Armstrong (lacrosse) 2007 winner: Christine Ordway (tennis) 2006 winner: Christine Ordway (tennis) 2005 winner: Gretchen Koch (lacrosse) 2004 winner: Lily Hoffman (lacrosse)

Athletes of the year from page 18 Kautz inspired strong efforts out of everyone on the roster, young and old, and on June 8, Waynflete found itself at The Ballpark in Old Orchard Beach for the preliminary round of the postseason. Waynflete wasn’t able to advance any further (falling, 5-2, in a tight game), but with an abundance of underclassmen on the roster, the Flyers have likely established themselves as a team to be reckoned with going forward. Kautz, who teaches in the Waynflete math department and lives in Portland with his wife, Raquel, will look to guide the Flyers even higher in 2011 and beyond. That’s certainly a distinct possibility. Steve Kautz, our Spring 2010 Portland edition boys’ Coach of the Year, has made the most of his resources and now, with some success under his belt, figures to keep the good times rolling. 2009 winner: Eric Begonia (Portland lacrosse) 2008 winner: Mike D’Andrea (Deering baseball) 2007 winner: Mike D’Andrea (Deering baseball) 2006 winner: Stephane Pejic (Waynflete tennis) 2005 winner: Eric Begonia (Portland lacrosse)
www.theforecaster.net 2004 winner: Mike D’Andrea (Deering baseball) Spring 2010 Portland edition Coach of the Year – Girls’ team Robbie Ferrante, McAuley softball Even though they were unable to sustain their sizzling start and didn’t manage to win a playoff game, there’s little question that the most inspirational city softball story this spring was that of the McAuley Lions. McAuley entered 2010 with no expectations, but went on to post the best record in program history. While the Lions featured an abundance of offense and solid pitching, as well as an infusion of some fantastic younger players, much of the credit for their revival has to go to the new man at the top, coach Robbie Ferrante. Ferrante made a return to the program with which he cut his coaching teeth, molded a dangerous team and got McAuley to believe it could win, then did so. For turning the Lions around in dizzying time, Robbie Ferrante is The Forecaster’s choice for our Spring 2010 Portland edition Coach of the Year, of a girls’ team. Ferrante grew up in Portland, played basketball at Portland High and graduated in 1972. Not long after, he was invited by now-McAuley athletic director Joe Kilmartin to help out with the softball program and
he took over the Lions in 1978. Ferrante coached until 1990, but never posted a winning mark, won more than seven games or reached the playoffs. F e r r a n t e wo u l d eventually find great success with the Portland program, leading the Bulldogs to the 2004 Class A title. He Ferrante also served as Portland’s assistant boys’ basketball coach for a decade and served in the same capacity at Cheverus for four years. Ferrante stepped down at Portland after the 2008 season and took 2009 off, then returned to McAuley this spring, not knowing what to expect. The Lions opened at home against highly-touted Cheverus and trailed 12-4 entering the bottom of the seventh inning. Then, in a wondrous sign of things to come, McAuley shed its past and astonishingly erupted for nine runs to win, 13-12. Behind the pitching of junior Jen Field and freshman Gabby Townsend and offensive contributions up and down the roster, the Lions won 10 of their first 11 games. McAuley would struggle against the meat of its schedule down the stretch, but still wound up 11-5, good for seventh in Western A. The Lions then made No. 2
South Portland, then eventual state champion, sweat in the quarterfinals before going down to a 6-4 defeat. Throughout, Ferrante pushed all the right buttons and created a contender that figures to be in the mix for the foreseeable future. Ferrante credited the fast start, focus and good health, as well as his assistant coaches, Jim Conley and Ryan Danley, for the Lions’ rise. Ferrante works for Rudy’s All-Star Diner in Portland (which used to be his Dad’s place) and lives in Saco with wife, Gail, and son Joseph, a sophomore at Thornton Academy. Now that he’s proved he can create a contender from scratch, the job will get more difficult in the future, but don’t think for a minute that Robbie Ferrante, our Spring 2010 Portland edition girls’ Coach of the Year, isn’t up to the task. 2009 winner: Bonnie Moran (Portland tennis) 2008 winner: Cathie Connors (Waynflete lacrosse) 2007 winner: Jamie Chamberlain (Cheverus lacrosse) 2006 winner: Jamie Chamberlain (Cheverus lacrosse) 2005 winner: Rick Supinski (Cheverus softball) 2004 winner: Cathie Connors (Waynflete lacrosse)

hibit will feature a tide-pool touch tank for children and adults to interact with animals and plants found in Maine’s waters. There will be sea urchins, sea stars, horseshoe crabs, sculpins, and sand dollars to touch. Another addition to the festival this year is the work of local bead maker Sam Lawrence. Lawrence, a 26-year-old Yarmouth resident, created individual glass beads that depict the color of the ocean and coastline to represent the Clam Festival. He said festival planners asked him to create a special Clam Festival bead, and he was happy to provide glass beads for the occasion. He said he likes working in this field because each piece is unique. “The way that I work, it’s very hard to get a match. Also, very often, I’m surprised with the color outcomes,” he said. “It’s very interesting to see what colors react with one another.” Five years ago Lawrence suffered a traumatic brain injury from which he is gradually recovering his cognitive, motor and speech functions. He has been making glass art for nine years and also creates paperweights, worry stones, buttons and pendants. He said he has about 88 Clam Festival beads, but a dozen have already been purchased. Beads can be purchased at the Clam Festival’s information booth and through the festival’s online gift shop. In addition to dining on clam cakes, clam chowder and fried clams, visitors can enjoy continued page 35

The Art Forecast
Homer prints for sale in Yarmouth By Edgar Allen Beem YARMOUTH — The summer celebration of the centennial of Winslow Homer’s life (1836-1910) has focused a lot of attention on Homer’s early career as a graphic artist and illustrator. The Saco Museum has drawn on its own collection and those of the Farnsworth Art Museum, the University of Maine Museum of Art, and several private collectors to mount “In a Place by Himself: The Graphic World of Winslow Homer” (through Nov. 14). And the Portland Museum of Art has launched an interactive online database of the more than 450 Homer graphic works given to it by Peggy and Harold Osher. Dr. & Mrs. Osher purchased a few of their Homer graphic works from a Yarmouth collector and dealer and, now, you can, too. Through the month of August, the collector (who wishes to remain anonymous) has consigned 86 Homer illustrations to Pillars, an art and antiques shop at 11 Yarmouth Crossing Drive, just off Main Street. Matted and displayed in racks and on the walls of the antique shop, the Homer graphics are accessible and affordable. Where a Homer painting might fetch tens of millions of dollars, the American master’s graphic works, mostly wood engravings excised from 19th century issues of Harper’s Weekly, sell for between $125 and $750, with the majority in the $200 to $300 range. The images include many of Homer’s well-known illustrations of Civil War army life to nostalgic renderings of the social life of his day.
“Noon Recess,” an 1873 wood engraving by Winslow Homer, is one of the Harper’s Weekly pieces available at Pillars in Yarmouth.
The Yarmouth collector has been speculating in art since he moved to Maine from Connecticut in 1982. Having disposed of a collection of nautical art and artifacts prior to the move (“At one point I had enough whale bone to make a whale,” he said), he realized that there might be money to be made in retirement dabbling in art. “Ninety-nine percent of the stuff I buy is at local auction,” he explained. A stack of old Harper’s Weekly purchased for $5 might yield collectible graphic works by illustrators such as Homer and Thomas Nast. Over the years, he learned what issues were most valuable and bought accordingly.
Rembrandt’s plates after his death, the prints are still worth thousands of dollars. All of which is not to say that the collector’s interest in art is completely mercenary. As he surveyed the Pillars exhibition, he pointed out interesting details, such as how Homer inserted himself in a crowd watching Fourth of July fireworks and how a 19th century lady has intentionally dropped her glove in hopes of attracting the attention of a military man. And he is particularly fond of “Noon Recess,” an illustration of a teacher giving a student recess detention, because one of his daughters is an educator. She and a group of her colleagues once purchased a copy of the print as a wedding present. “I got the nicest note from the bride,” he said. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth and also writes The Universal Notebook column weekly for The Forecaster.
“All of my buying from the very beginning was a matter of investment and resale,” the collector said, “as opposed to making a permanent collection.” What intrigues the Homer collector, he says, is how it is possible to speculate in art based solely on a little knowledge and a little cash. Though he has acted as a buying agent for collectors and dealers spending hundreds of thousands of dollars, most of his purchases have been made for relatively little money. “With a modest pocketbook,” he said, “I find I can score very nicely.” For a mere $90, for example, he once picked up a pair of prints that turned out to be Rembrandts.

Out & About
‘My Fair Lady’ is fairest of all By Scott Andrews Brunswick represents southern Maine’s cultural pivot point, at least as far as this week’s “Out & About” is concerned. At Maine State Music Theatre, the current offering of “My Fair Lady” is a truly memorable theatrical experience. MSMT has mounted an incredibly fine production, with standout, stellar performances by the four leading characters plus excellent support from the entire ensemble and technical team. I’ve spent some quality time at the Bowdoin International Music Festival over the past week, including checking out some of the new offerings, such as the Monday Sonata series, Artists of Tomorrow series and the Festival Extras. In the Port City, I recommend this Friday’s performance by Clara Berry, a very talented and appealing young pianistsinger-songwriter.
‘My Fair Lady’ Of all the wonderful musicals ever created for Broadway, “My Fair Lady” easily ranks among my Top 10 personal favorites. The original cast recording, a well-worn 33-rpm vinyl disk with the voices of Julie Andrews, Rex Harrison and Stanley Holloway, was a fixture of my childhood. I’ve seen it many times over the years in productions that range from fully professional to rank amateur. “My Fair Lady” is a musical adaptation (with significant changes) of George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” with score by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. It debuted on Broadway in 1957 and held the record for longest-running musical for many years. The best professional production (Equity contract) of “My Fair Lady” I can recall is running through Saturday at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick. Starring Kate Fisher as the feisty Cockney flower seller who seeks to “learn to talk like a lady” and Peter Simon Hilton as the crusty British phonetics professor, MSMT offers a memorable theatrical experience. The top supporting actor in the cast is Ed Romanoff (of the Portland area’s Schooner Fare family) as one of the most memorable characters in American theater, a beer-swilling London garbage collector who sells his daughter to the professor to finance his nightly visits to the pub. Other excellent supporting roles include John-Charles Kelly as a dignified retired army colonel, Chuck Ragsdale as a lovelorn aristocratic fop and Charis Leos as the professor’s housekeeper. Charles S. Kading’s set and Ed Reichert’s musical direction are spot-on. Especially intriguing is the two-piano score, prepared in 1957 by the show’s original orchestrator, then lost for many years. My personal joy at seeing “My Fair Lady” was tempered by the realization that it also represents the final directorial outing for Charles Abbott, who retires at the end of this season after a 31-year run, including the past 20 years as MSMT’s artistic director. I’ve treasured my friendship with Abbott for nearly two decades, and I’ll sorely miss his presence. Maine State Music Theatre presents “My Fair Lady” through July 17 at

Bowdoin International Music Festival I’ve been attending concerts at the Bowdoin International Music Festival for about a decade, and most of them have been in the two main series: Wednesday Upbeat! and Festival Fridays. For 2010 I’ve been checking out some of the other opportunities. The Monday Sonata series was established a couple of years ago when Bowdoin College transformed the former Curtis Natatorium (swimming pool) into Studzinski Hall. Initially used only for student recitals, festival Director Lewis Kaplan recalls that his faculty approached him and wanted to perform in the handsome new space with superb acoustics. To answer these requests, Kaplan created the Monday Sonata series. This year there’s been another new twist. Each of the Monday concerts is followed by a meet-the-artists reception at the Brunswick Inn, a five-minute walk away. Hosted by innkeeper-owner Eileen Hornor, it’s an opportunity to chat over wine and cheese with some of the world’s top performing artists and conservatory professors in the parlor of the historic inn. I’ve also attended some of the student concerts, recently renamed the Artists of Tomorrow series. As the name implies, these concerts provide the public an opportunity to see and hear the festival’s top young performers. It’s also a reminder that BIMF has about 280 students and music education is its primary function. Programming for these concerts is a bit more interesting and varied. For example last Sunday’s bill of fare included two rare pieces for harp, including an enchanting harp duet, plus a post-graduate composition student playing a very interesting piece of his own creation. Also new this year is a series of lecture-demonstrations. The first I attended was titled “Chopin in the Midst of a Piano Revolution.” The presentation was made by four men. Bates College professor James Parakilas is the author of a book on the history of the piano. Rodney Regier is a world-renowned Freeport craftsman who builds historic replica
harpsichords and pianos. Cellist Steven Doane and pianist Barry Snyder performed snippets of a sonata, alternately using a contemporary Steinway and one of Regier’s early 19th-century replicas. The lecture-demos are part of the Festival Extra series. The complete schedule of concerts and other events, plus online program notes and web links by Canadian musicologist Durrell Bowman, is available by visiting www.bowdoinfestival.org.
Clara Berry And speaking of young and appealing up-and-coming artists, I recently met one

the Portland music scene’s most intriguing singer-songwriters. Clara Berry is a 20-year-old from Kennebunk who has been composing, playing electronic keyboard and singing her own songs for the past six years. She attends college in Massachusetts – majoring in the music business – but returns to her home state each summer and plays out often. Berry has a fascinating and skillful style of interweaving melodic and poetic elements into a whole musical fabric, whether she’s performing solo or with a backup band. I recently caught a show in Portland when she introduced her new CD, titled “Creature.” Some of Berry’s material is dark and thoughtful while other songs display a rare and mercurial sense of humor. Plus she avoids most of the cliches and pitfalls that plague some singer-songwriters. With an earnest performing style and distinctive red hair, Berry also boasts a commanding stage presence. She’s got another Portland show coming up, at Blue, an intimate downtown eatery that’s been making gentle waves through the Port City music community by hosting an eclectic and highly varied program of local artists. Berry is scheduled to appear at 8 p.m. July 16. Find Blue at 650A Congress St.; call 774-4111.

Restraints from page 1 this spring. For Brandon and hundreds of other special education students like him, therapeutic restraint by school staff have become a regular part of their public school experiences.
Prone, basket holds Therapeutic restraints are defined by the Maine Department of Education as the physical restraint of a student for the purpose of preventing that student from injuring himself or others. The methods range from prone restraints – where a staff member holds a child face down on the floor and prevents the child’s arms and legs from moving – to seated basket holds, where a staff member wraps his or her arms around a child’s arms from behind. The Department of Education’s requires each school district to develop and maintain a policy on restraint and seclusion. Scarborough school policy requires that therapeutic restraints are only to be undertaken in accordance with an individualized, written plan that specifically calls for therapeutic restraint. Schools in Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Brunswick and Falmouth all have identical policies. However, these restraints are often used in emergency situations to prevent children from hurting themselves, their classmates or their teachers – even when they’re not included in the child’s individual education plan. The U.S. Government Accountability Office issued a report in March detailing 10 cases where children died or were seriously injured from the use of therapeutic restraints, citing prone holds as the most dangerous forms of restraint. The study found that often these holds were performed by staff members with little or no training. The Maine Disability Rights Center has handled 53 complaints about abusive or neglectful restraints in Maine schools in the past two years. “These are cases in which a student or family member contacted the agency about the use of restraint or seclusion that the caller believed to be abusive or neglectful, and after a review of the facts, we agreed to represent the family,” said Diane Smith, an attorney for DRC. The Department of Education sent a letter to all Maine school superintendents, principals, directors of special education and teachers in July 2009, recommending schools update their policies to prohibit these dangerous restraints. “The Department not only strongly supports the effort to prohibit this type of restraint, we would broaden the prohibition to include all children and any position which restricts the free movement of the diaphragm or chest so as to interrupt normal breathing and speech,” the letter said. It went on to explain that these restraints can cause death. But the policies used by Brunswick, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, Portland, Scarborough and South Portland do not reflect this prohibition. The schools’ policies state that “at least two adults should be involved in the use of therapeutic restraints ... and, if possible, both adults should have completed an appropriate training program.” In emergency situations, the policies
July 14, 2010 Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/62612
continue, “if an untrained adult is involved in the intervention, his/her conduct shall also be protected to the full extent allowed by state law on the use of reasonable force in emergencies.” While some schools, including Falmouth and Cape Elizabeth, performed only one or two therapeutic restraints last year, a Freedom of Access Act request by The Forecaster found that other schools are using the method more often: 22 times in Brunswick, 27 in Scarborough and 46 in Portland. South Portland, which has a specialized day treatment facility, used therapeutic holds 63 times last year. “This year is very much an outlier for us,” Allison Marchese, special education director for the Scarborough School Department, said. “It’s a combination of a handful of kiddos. It’s not typical.” Marchese said the school has paid to move the students involved in the majority of the holds into day treatment centers such as Spurwink.
Information request denied
A request under Maine’s Freedom of Access Act by The Forecaster to six school departments for all therapeutic restraint documents – without personal information that would identify students – was denied by the schools. A separate request for a list of staff members performing the restraints was also refused, so it is impossible to know whether the staff members involved in these restraints were certified to do them safely. The schools’ attorney, Peter C. Felmly of Drummond Woodsum in Portland, cited the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, which protects the privacy of student records. The rationale for the denial was that the names of the teachers, connected with the dates of restraints, could lead a reasonable person to determine which students are undergoing therapeutic restraints, and therefore violate FERPA. FERPA also prevents school officials from discussing the details of any student’s education. When asked to release just a list of the names of the staff involved in therapeutic restraints, Felmly responded: “There are no existing documents satisfying your request, and the (Freedom of Access Act) does not require public entities to prepare reports, spreadsheets, summaries, or create records not in existence on the date of a FOAA request.” The letter added that “culling this information from student records is not required under the FOAA or FERPA.” As a result, only those parents whose children are involved in past therapeutic restraints have access to the names of staff members conducting the restraints and can check the certification of those staff members. “If a parent was concerned and wanted to bring the issue forward, there are channels for that,” Felmly said, “but not for a (news story).” Children whose parents do not know their rights, do not have time to pursue these requests or those children without parents to advocate for them are without an oversight process and there is currently no formal process to file a complaint with the Department of Education. “The schools are violating state law,” continued next page
July 14, 2010
Restraints from previous page said Sigmund Schutz, an attorney at Preti Flaherty in Portland, who represents the Maine Press Association. “The schools can keep certain information on students confidential, but must release information on practices by the school and its employees. If there is a legitimate fear that some information would lead to the identification of a student, that information and only that information can be withheld. The presence of some confidential information in a record does not make all of the remaining information in that same record confidential.” California and Connecticut both require schools to annually report the use of restraints in public schools.
Investigation stalled When Brandon Baizley entered kindergarten in the fall of 2008 it became immediately apparent there was a problem. He was acting out in class, being disruptive in a way he never had been in preschool. In October 2008, Bob and Mary Ann requested a Functional Behavioral Assessment from the Blue Point School to determine the best way to move forward with Brandon’s education. These assessments are typically done for special education students. While they waited for the assessment they say was never done, Brandon was being physically restrained regularly at school. After Brandon Baizley was injured by a series of three restraints on Dec. 19, 2008, his parents requested an investigation by the Scarborough School Board and superintendent. However, when school officials asked that the Baizleys provide the hospitalization forms, which included Brandon’s detailed medical history, their lawyer advised them to refuse, and the lawyer at Maine Medical Center told the Baizleys the hospital would refuse to release documents until proper legal protocol was followed. As a result, the school district did not complete an investigation.
Scarborough Superintendent David Doyle did not respond to multiple requests for comment. The Department of Education has no system in place to take parent complaints on violations of Chapter 33, which regulates restraints in public schools. “Maine has regulations, which puts it a step ahead of a lot of other states,” said Smith of DRC, “but there’s no capacity for parents to file complaints. There’s no formal process.” DRC does investigations of parent complaints, but without a formal process, it is often difficult or impossible to gather the evidence necessary to determine whether a child was improperly restrained. “In Maine, there hasn’t been a death yet,” Smith said. “But there’s nothing unique in the laws here that would protect us from that.” Smith explained that restraints are only supposed to be used when a child is a danger to himself or others, not in instances when property may be damaged or when a child is being defiant. However, her organization has found that in many cases restraints are used as a punishment to discourage certain behavior.
Trained to restrain When asked if she knew of any students having been injured in Scarborough due to a restraint, Marchese, the special ed director, said, “not that I have seen documentation of, or talked to medical personnel about, no.” In 20 restraint documents provided by the Baizleys, 11 people were listed as directly involved in restraining Brandon, which included multiple instances of prone restraints. Of those 11, the Maine Department of Education could only find certification records for eight, and only one was a certified special education instructor. Marchese said any Scarborough staff member who might have to do a therapeutic restraint is trained. “We always had all our staff trained in programs that teach strategies for calming, for moving away,” she said. “Therapeutic intervention is always our goal.

The law tries to catch up It’s not just Scarborough seeking lessintrusive interventions. In March 2010 the U.S. House of Representatives approved the Keeping All Students Safe Act (H.R. 4247), which would apply minimum federal standards for seclusion and restraint, and would make clear that physical restraint is only to be used when there is imminent danger of injury. It would also require that staff participating in the restraints be properly trained. But most importantly, the bill would prohibit school staff from including restraint and seclusion as planned interventions in a student’s education plan. The bill has not yet been taken up by the U.S. Senate. In the meantime, state Rep. Sean Flaherty, D-Scarborough, said he is considering introducing legislation when the Maine Legislature reconvenes this fall. Flaherty, whose mother was a special education instructor, said he has been contacted by several families, including the Baizleys, and is drafting legislation. “This is certainly something that merits taking a look at,” he said. “I’m looking at potentially banning (therapeutic restraints) entirely.” Flaherty’s bill wouldn’t be the first time the Legislature has looked into this issue. LD 1096, An Act To Protect School Children from Dangerous or Abusive Restraint and Seclusion, which would have prohibited prone restraints, failed two years ago after the Legislature heard testimony from school officials that seclusion and restraint was not a problem in Maine schools.

We want to keep everyone physically and emotionally safe.” This summer and fall, Scarborough staff will be trained in Safety-Care Behavioral Safety Training, a program that puts emphasis on avoiding restraints and includes training in less-restrictive interventions. “Safety-Care does not have prone or supine holds,” Marchese said. “We switched to Safety-Care because we wanted more less-intrusive interventions.”

The Scarborough School Department has budgeted more than $159,000 for special education outside placement in its fiscal 2011 budget – an increase of nearly 45 percent over last year. At the same time, several special education teachers and ed tech positions were eliminated. The costs of special education continues to increase as state aid decreases. “This is a very expensive cost center,” Marchese said. “We have had to increase case load sizes. There are some situations where we can’t meet a child’s needs.” The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act requires schools to serve children in the least restrictive environment. “Everybody does better in their natural environment,” Smith, of DRC, said. “And inclusive placements are less expensive than out of district placements.” Next year, Brandon’s parents say the Scarborough School Department has asked that Brandon attend a day treatment program at Spurwink rather than going to public school. Scarborough and Medicaid will pay for the treatment. Brandon’s mother said she is disappointed that her son wouldn’t be attending public school. “We feel like Scarborough gave up on Brandon,” she said. The Baizleys said they hope Brandon’s new school is a good fit, and that eventually he’ll be able to return to Scarborough. In the meantime, they offer advice to other parents in similar situations. “You need to educate yourself,” Bob Baizley said. “The best advocate for a child is a parent. People were willing to help us because we’ve done so much work and really advocated for Brandon.” The Baizleys said they are careful to make sure Brandon doesn’t know how difficult this is for them, and how hard they’ve had to fight for what they believe he deserves – a safe, positive educational experience. “We only wish we had reached out sooner,” Bob Baizley said.

from page 1 negotiating to lease the former KeyBank building at the corner of Congress and St. John streets. The property was chosen because of its proximity to Metro bus stops, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, Maine Medical Center and the Greyhound bus station. The facility is the only one approved to operate in Cumberland County. The City Council said it was important the dispensary be near public transit. It is unclear, however, how many patients will take advantage of the Greyhound service, since the only other stop those buses make in the county is Brunswick. Planning Board member Lee Lowry said access to parking should weigh heavily, too. “People are going to be coming in from all over the county,” Lowry said. “It’s not just for Portland residents.” Lowry suggested the board also consider recommending the B-4 and B-5 business zones, but was told by staff that to do so the board would have to conduct another meeting with an amended notice. DeKeuster said the Northeast Patients Group dispensary is expected to act as a community center for patients, too, with private rooms for individual counseling and space for group meetings. She said she expects on-site consumption of marijuana will take place. “There are a lot of good reasons to provide a safe place to medicate,” DeKeuster said, including if patients have children at home or live in public housing.
She said her group, which also was selected to run three other dispensaries in the state, plans to have its cultivation and food processing facility in Hermon. Northeast Patients Group estimates it will have about 260 patients by the end of the first year of operation. DeKeuster said eventually about 1 percent of Mainers will probably be registered patients for medical marijuana. She also praised Portland’s zoning proposal. “I think this is one of the most sensible zoning plans I’ve seen in the years I’ve been doing this,” said DeKeuster, who spent several years working at dispensaries in California and helping form policy in that state. The City Council will take up the Planning Board recommendation July 19 at its 7 p.m. meeting at City Hall. Kate Bucklin can be reached at 781-3661 ext .106 or email@example.com
Zoning from page 1 the past year and on Tuesday supported almost all of the pier owners’ proposals. The recommendation includes allowing up to 50 percent non-marine use on the first floor of buildings, relaxing development restrictions along Commercial Street, allowing for more non-commercial berthing on wharves and easing parking requirements. The pier owners had not asked for consideration of residential use, but the

Portland Society of Architects lobbied the board to consider allowing living space along Commercial Street and several planners agreed it was a good idea. Planning Board member David Silk said he did not see the difference between allowing residential units along Commercial Street and allowing retail and restaurants. While board members said they were not prepared to change the actual text of the Waterfront Central Zoning on Tuesday night, they voted in favor of changing the proposed policy and asking the council to consider it. The board also voted to send a recommendation to the council that it put in place a rule that would require owners invest in pier improvements when they profit from the relaxed zoning.

Wind from page 3 Those greater than 85 feet tall must be set back from property lines and public ways by twice the total height and eight times their height from residences and hospitals. Turbines considered to be permitted uses would be reviewed by a zoning administrator, while conditional uses would be reviewed by the Zoning Board of Appeals. Turbine heights are measured from the ground to the highest tip of the rotor blade. All moving parts must remain at least 12 feet off the ground. Fraser said there has been a lot of interest in creating a wind energy ordinance and the Planning Department hopes people come out to share their thoughts, before the draft goes to the Planning Board in September. “Staff are aware there is a lot of interest and expertise in Portland (regarding) this subject,” Fraser said. “I would encourage anyone who has a particular interest or knowledge in this subject to contact me and attend/ contribute.”

The round-table discussion is scheduled to run from 4:30-6 p.m. at the East End Community Center at the East End School, 195 North St. Contact Fraser at JF@ portlandmaine.gov for more information.
maps adopted in the 1980s. In some cases, the homeowners don’t discover they’re in a flood zone until they refinance their mortgages and are suddenly required by lenders to purchase flood insurance. The cost can be up to $2,000 per year. Disputing the designation often requires hiring a surveyor or someone like Gerber, who said some individual cases cost about $1,500. In both meetings on Monday, local officials asked the FEMA representatives to hold town hall-style meetings to explain the process to residents. Eiane, of Harpswell, said residents “want to feel good about the methodology and process FEMA has used.” Barry Tibbetts, the town manager for Kennebunk, was more blunt. “Residents don’t want to feel like this is being jammed down their throats by the federal government,” Tibbetts said. Cape Elizabeth Town Manager Mike McGovern, however, had few issues with FEMA’s remapping, saying some property owners should be forced to buy flood insurance rather than ask to be bailed out if disaster strikes.

Maps from page 4 maps. “Falmouth might be one town that’s hesitant to submit my report,” Gerber quipped during the South Portland meeting. Later, in Portland, Gerber asked Goetz what he should do with his information. Goetz, who said Falmouth was excluded from new analysis because of the agency’s limited funding, said it is up to Falmouth officials to make that decision. FEMA representatives also assured local officials that the agency would review requests to change the flood designation, even after the new maps are adopted. However, that process has proved costly and difficult for some residents, some of whom are fighting FEMA flood

Clam Festival from page 20
other traditional events such as races, rides, music and crafts. The Yarmouth High School band, LowFlying Airplanes, will perform at 1:30 p.m. at Village Green Park. The group was voted best high school band in the Maine Academy of Modern Music’s 2010 Maine Teen Rock-off. The Clam Festival parade will begin at 6 p.m. Friday on Main Street, but spectators are encouraged to arrive early if they want to witness a special event: festival spokeswoman Lisa Perkins said the Levity Project, a performance arts group, will create “Maine’s Longest Smile” near the festival center on Main Street before the parade begins. The parade theme is “Three Cheers for Champions: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow,” Perkins said.
“The theme honors Herbie the 217-yearold American Elm tree lost this year after a 50-year battle with Dutch elm disease, as well as Frank Knight, the 101-year-old man who championed Herbie’s survival through those 50 years and 14 bouts of the disease,” she said. Knight will lead the parade as the grand marshal and float designs will celebrate champions of every kind. Current tree warden Deb Hopkins will be on the float with Donna Felker, the woman who named Herbie, and her family. “The float is a family tree of children and grandchildren and other people close to Herbie,” Perkins said. On Saturday, there will be a six-mile canoe and kayak race starting at 6:30 a.m. at Yarmouth Town Landing. The course travels around Lanes Island and up Cousins River to the Muddy Rudder. There will be a Kids Fun Run at 7:15 a.m. at Memorial Green. For the adults, the 30th annual Pat’s Pizza 5-mile Road Race
starts at 8 a.m. on Main Street. Other events on Saturday include live music, trolley tours, horse and buggy rides, the Maine State Clam Shucking contest and the Maine Firefighters Muster. Sunday’s events include the 30th annual Men’s and Women’s Professional Bike Race starting at 9 a.m. at Memorial Green. Continuing a tradition since 1973, children through age three can participate in the Diaper Derby at the Merrill Memorial Library Lawn tent at noon. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and there are three divisions for children ages 1 month to 3 years. Throughout the festival more than 100 artists and crafters will display and sell pottery, clothing, paintings, wood carvings and jewelry. Carnival rides and amusements provided by Smokey’s Greater Shows will operate beginning, Wednesday, July 14, at 5 p.m. and continue throughout the festival.
