Races set for City Council, school elections

Schools turn focus to students, curriculum By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Public school students will resume classes on Tuesday, Sept. 7, kicking off a busy year for city schools. The Ocean Avenue Elementary School is expected to open after Christmas break and several schools will be under the leadership of new principals. New administrators, meanwhile, will be keeping an eye on the district’s fiscal health,

while working to unify new curriculum. High school students will be operating under a new unified schedule, designed to allow better sharing of resources, students and staff. With one budget season under his belt, Superintendent James Morse Sr., who starts his second year as school chief, said he is looking forward to working on the See page 25

The new Ocean Avenue Elementary School in Portland was still under construction this week. Workers, above, hoisted panels to the roofline at the rear of the school where the panels will gather solar energy to heat water for the new building. It is scheduled to open early in 2011.

By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — The deadline for candidates to get on the November city election ballot passed Monday and it looks like District 3 will have the most interesting races. City Councilor Dan Skolnik announced earlier this summer that he will not seek a second term representing District 3. Two candidates have emerged to compete for the seat. Former Councilor and Mayor Edward Suslovic is one of the candidates running for the seat. Suslovic, a Kenwood Street resident, served one term as an atlarge councilor before losing his seat to Dory Waxman in 2008. Orland Street resident Will Mitchell is also seeking the District 3 seat. Mitchell is a son of gubernatorial candidate Libby Mitchell and runs a computer geographics business. Both candidates have children in Portland public schools and have said working with the School Committee will be a high priority. In the District 3 School Committee race, Frank Gallagher will compete against Laurie Davis to replace Peter Eglinton, who decided not to seek reelection. See page 33

November ballot will include question on non-citizen voting By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — A handful of people turned out Monday to express their opinions on what is expected to be the most contentious issue on the city ballot in November: Should non-U.S. citizens be allowed to vote in local elections? An effort spearheaded by the League of Young Voters earlier this year collected more

than 4,500 signatures to put the question on the ballot. The effort was launched in March after the city’s Charter Commission decided against including non-citizen voting rights in its recommended changes to the City Charter. The City Council on Monday held a public hearing before voting to put the question on the ballot. Voters will be asked in November if they favor al-

lowing legal, non-U.S. citizens who are residents of Portland and at least 18 years old to vote in School Committee and City Council elections, and on the school budget. Non-citizens would not be allowed to run for office. Alfred Jacob, a 26-year-old Portland resident who moved to the United States from Sudan when he was a child, spoke in favor of allowing non-citizen

voting. Jacob said the future of Portland will include an increased immigrant population that is becoming part of the community. “We seek a way of integrating and creating a better Portland,” he said. The Portland High School alumnus said there is a disconnect between the immigrant community and the school system, despite more than 25 per-

cent of the student population in Portland being immigrants. “Parents aren’t as involved with the schools,” he said, but allowing them to vote will increase their participation in school issues. Will Everitt, director of the Maine League of Young Voters, said there are as many as 10,000 immigrants living in Portland, See page 25

Flaws in Maine wind bill like skating on ‘dull skates’ By Naomi Schalit AUGUSTA — After proposing major changes to state law that would speed up the review of wind power projects, Gov. John Baldacci’s wind power task force members went one step further: They made a map. Without the map, the law would just be a set of rules. The map was essential because it showed where wind turbines could get fast-track consideration. The map designated all the organized towns and about a third of the unorganized territories as the state’s “expedited wind zone,” where that speedy consideration of projects would take place. The task force also proposed allowing the Land Use Regulation Commission to

expand the areas if applicants met certain standards. How that map got drawn is not clear from the official record of the task force’s meetings. That’s because summaries for the last two meetings don’t exist, according to Rondi Doiron, secretary to task force Chairman Alec Giffen. “Everyone was working straight out on getting the report done and no one had time to get the summaries done,” Doiron wrote in an e-mail. But Giffen and others freely describe the map’s genesis: First, Giffen consulted with the developers’ representatives one-by-one, as they were loathe to share proprietary information with competitors. Then he went to environmental groups and asked what areas they wanted to protect. Then he came up with a proposed map designating expedited wind development areas.

“I integrated, based on what I knew about what areas were important for what kinds of uses,” Giffen said, “presented it to the task force and got concurrence that the way in which it was outlined made sense.” Others describe the map-drawing process as a last-minute rush to get the task force report done in time for legislators to consider as they neared the end of a short session. “There was a lot of ‘Here, here, here and here’ and ‘No, no, no and no,’ ” during the map debate, said task force member Rep. Stacey Fitts, R-Pittsfield. “It changed several times.” Maine Audubon’s Jody Jones described the process as “I want this in, I want this out.” Whatever the process looked and sounded like is lost to the public record because no minutes were taken or recorded. And that is “shocking,” said Lewiston Sun Journal Managing Editor Judy Meyer, who is also vice president of the Maine Freedom of Information Coalition. Maine law doesn’t require groups like the governor’s wind task force to memorialize deliberations, Meyer said. “There’s no requirement that they record their meetings or produce minutes,” she said. “What smells particularly about this is that there are some summaries and not others. That’s a real eyebrowraiser. You’d think a governor’s task force would have the ability to keep minutes of its proceedings.” Giffen says the map — which was approved by the full Legislature — is only the first step in deciding whether a

project should be built in a specific place. “It’s a coarse filter to try to get wind power development guided to parts of the landscape where it’s already partially developed and you already have infrastructure,” he said. “Then you have the finer filters of the regulatory process.” And just because a site is in the expedited permit zone doesn’t mean it’s an automatic approval once a wind power project applies for a permit to build. “The law specifically says that the permitting agency shall not compromise its regulatory review criteria,” LURC director Catherine Carroll said. “It’s not a slam dunk.”

Law tested, applicants testy

That point was made acutely clear this year in one of the first tests of the new law, an application by TransCanada to build turbines in the expedited wind zone near its western Maine Kibby Mountain project. At a meeting on July 7 in Bangor, LURC commissioners – all of whom were nominated or renominated by Baldacci – indicated by straw vote they’d deny TransCanada’s request to construct the turbines. Several environmental organizations, including the three groups that were on the governor’s wind power task force, testified against portions of the project. Objections ranged from damage to wildlife to degradation of the scenically valuable high mountain site. Many of the commissioners likewise expressed concerns about the potential harm the project would do to the site. Commissioners struggled to weigh the new law’s goals for wind power development against the environmental problems posed by the project. “I’m terribly conflicted here,” Commissioner Steve Schaefer said. He and other commissioners said they were unclear whether the law’s goals for wind power were binding on them and would force them to approve a project they didn’t feel protected the landscape they were legally obligated to protect. “The Wind Power Act looms large here,” Commissioner Ed Laverty said. “We’re all going to reduce global warming and our carbon footprint,” Laverty continued, “but most of the immediate benefits of projects like these do not accrue to the people of Maine, they’re exported through the grid elsewhere. “What stays with us in the state of Maine are the environmental impacts.” A few days after the LURC meeting, TransCanada project manager Nick DiDomenico was outraged at the meeting’s outcome. The environmental groups that had participated in the task force and then opposed TransCanada’s proposal drew his special wrath: “The (environmental groups) were at the table when the map was drawn up,” he said. “That to me means these areas are acceptable for visual impacts. Maybe we were a little naive in drawing that conclusion. “We thought the Wind Power Act meant something.” Within eight days, Peter Vigue, chairman of construction company Cianbro, had published a column in the Bangor

Diverse groups join forces to promote elected mayor for Portland Comment on this story at:

By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — That an organization of young, idealistic activists is joining with the Chamber of Commerce to push the issue seems in itself reason to believe the city may soon have an elected mayor. “It’s a great issue, it really cuts across the divide,” Will Everitt, director of the Maine League of Young Voters said of a recent recommendation by the Portland Charter Commission to shake up how the city does business by adding an elected mayor to local government. The recommendation also has support from the Portland Community Chamber, which represents 627 businesses.

Currently, the city has a nine-member City Council and a city manager. The council appoints a member each year to serve as mayor, which really amounts to being the chairman of the board. The Charter Commission has recommended the city switch to a popularly elected mayor, one with some power to throw around. The question will go to voters in November, along with other Charter-related questions. The commission has recommended the mayor be elected through instant runoff voting to ensure the winner has the sup-

News briefs Portland seeks feedback about grants

PORTLAND — The city will hold a series of meetings in September to gather feedback from residents about how Community Development Block Grant-funded programs are working in their neighborhoods. The city distributes about $2.1 million in federal CDBG funding to select social service agencies and non-profit and city capital improvement projects every spring. The funds are meant to help qualifying low-income neighborhoods; the meetings will be held in those communities. Forecaster On Sept. 9 12 at 7X p.m., the District 2

meeting takes place at Parkside Neighborhood Center on Grant Street. The West End, Parkside and St. John Valley neighborhoods are CDBG-qualifying areas. The District 1 meeting, which includes Bayside, East Bayside, Munjoy Hill and Cliff Island, is scheduled for Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Merrill Rehearsal Hall on Myrtle Street. On Sept. 22, the District 3 meeting is scheduled at the West School beginning at 7:30 p.m. Libbytown in that district is a qualifying neighborhood. For more information about the meetings, call Amy Grommes Pulaski at 874-8731.

port of a majority of voters (50 percent plus one vote). Voters would rank candidates in order of preference. The lowest vote getter will be dropped from contention until a winner emerges. The mayor’s job would be full time, with an annual salary of close to $70,000. He or she would shape city policy and also have some veto power and control over the city budget. Everitt said the run-off element has strong support from the league. “The big thing for us is to have an elected mayor with a majority vote,” he said. Ron Ward, president of the Portland Community Chamber, said that without a strong leader the city often flounders in its decision-making process, which isn’t good for attracting businesses and promoting economic development. “We need to have someone in charge who speaks with authority,” Ward said. “The city manager doesn’t get sent out with one, unified voice (from the City Council) often.” Ward said decisions must be made quickly in order to compete with other cities.

to get consensus on issues,” Ward said. “That process is inconsistent with the current world.”

Everitt and Ward said that in the coming week or so, their groups will come up with a steering committee and a campaign strategy. So far, no organized group opposed to the elected mayor proposal has emerged. Kate Bucklin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or

State wants $36K for public records As part of its reporting on the Wind Energy Act of 2008, the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting filed a state public records request under Maine’s Freedom of Access Act. However, the center never received much of the material it requested from the state because the cost was prohibitive: more than $36,200. That’s what the state Public Utilities Commission wanted from the center to search for e-mails from 2005-2007 between then-PUC Chairman Kurt Adams and any representatives of wind company First Wind (where Adams took a job after leaving the PUC); between Adams and Gov. John Baldacci, for whom Adams had previously worked as legal counsel, and between Adams and several prominent wind power attorneys employed by the law

firm of Verrill Dana. The center wanted those messages because Adams’ input had been crucial to the deliberations of the governor’s wind power task force. Initially, PUC attorney Joanne Stenack told the center that a search of backup discs containing e-mail records for the period prior to January 2008 could be done for a cost of upwards of $10,000. The center then asked for a waiver of the $10,000 cost, under provisions in the state’s FOAA that allow waivers to be granted for noncommercial use of public information. They refused to grant the waiver and revised their estimate of the cost for the Center to get the information to $36,239.52. — Naomi Schalit

Orlando Delogu published a similarly sharp-toned column in the Maine Sunday Telegram. “Reading a transcript of the recent LURC hearing on TransCanada’s proposed Kibby No. 2 wind energy project, a 45-megawatt expansion of an existing facility in Chain of Ponds Township, makes you want to cry for Maine’s economy and energy future,” Delogu wrote.

from previous page “And then it makes you mad.” But state Sen. Peter Mills isn’t mad at LURC. Instead, he calls the LURC commissioners “victims” of a new state policy that isn’t clear enough about if, and how, competing values can be resolved. “No one wanted to be bothered with the details,” Mills said. “We’ll just leave it up to LURC to figure out what we mean. We passed this thing, but we never gave them the tools to deal with this.” LURC Commissioner Sally Farrand mirrored Mills’ frustration, when she remarked during the July 7 hearing, “Boy, I sure hope we can tighten up some of this stuff because I see it as a skating rink with some very dull skates.”

“Were it not for the wind-power market, alpine land has fairly limited value,” said Alan Stearns, deputy director of the Bureau of Parks and Lands. “Right now the mathematics is land with wind power potential is not for sale for conservation. “As long as the market for wind power is dynamic,” Stearns said, “most landowners with wind-power potential are working with wind power developers, not conservation groups, for that land.” And turbine noise that irritates neighbors has proven to be especially problematic, with residents who live near towers complaining of sleep disturbance and other health problems. But a comparison of the task force’s report with the governor’s legislation that became the Wind Power Act reveals a significant omission: The recommendation that the environmental protection commissioner be given the power to continued page 32

Komen Race for the Cure coming to Portland By Alex Lear CUMBERLAND — Marjorie Adams will run her fourth Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure this year, honoring fellow cancer survivors and others who have been affected by the disease. The race will be held in Portland this year for the first time, on Sept. 12, followed by the now-traditional Bangor race one week later. Adams has run in the Bangor race for the past three years, and the Cumberland woman will participate in the 5-kilometer event this time in Portland. The 60-year-old wife and mother of two was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2005. A lumpectomy followed, and then a mastectomy, after which Adams underwent chemotherapy and radiation and was on weekly Herceptin infusions for a year. “It seemed to be a surprise to everyone, through the whole process, which I

guess is not uncommon,” Adams said on Monday. “I had had a mammogram the previous December, which was clear.” By March she realized something was wrong, and she eventually discovered a lump. Although her doctor did not think there was cause for worry, a biopsy ultimately revealed the cancer. After completing her Herceptin treatments Adams underwent a bone scan and was found to be clear. Annual scans and subsequent blood tests have also given her a clean bill of health. “Everything so far looks great,” Adams said. “I have no reason to think it won’t be.” Adams said she was inspired to run the Komen race the first time by a friend who had been running in the Komen race with her Bangor-based brother. She found herself among a huge group

But left behind in this dynamic technology environment are Israel’s Arab high-tech entrepreneurs. They do not benefit from lifelong networks formed by military service in the Israeli Defense Forces, since, if they serve, they are seldom admitted to elite units. Nor, if they venture out of predominantly Arab cities, are they offered positions in leading technology companies. Enter the NGT (“New Generation Technologies”) Incubator in Nazareth. Founded (and funded) by Israeli Arab entrepreneurs and the government Office of the Chief Scientist, NGT today houses some 18 start-up ventures, most in the life sciences, headed by Arab and Jewish entrepreneurs, as well as some companies with joint management and ownership. Entrepreneurs admitted to the incubator benefit from grants, investor and management networks, lab facilities and an environment conducive to collaboration. Arab and Jewish scientists and technology developers work side by side, confronting on a daily basis many of the challenges that the nation faces as a whole, but overcoming them where possible by a shared focus on science, research and, one hopes, profit. NGT is not a panacea, of course, and

It’s interesting to note that among the many Jewish Israelis with whom I spoke regarding the economic situation in the country, I found unanimity: Israel will be a better, more secure and more prosperous society if it can foster an Arab hightech entrepreneurial class. Achieving unanimity in Israel on any point – especially one concerning the need to bolster Arabs economically – is noteworthy in itself. Perry B.

The perfection of imperfection Biologically speaking, had it been possible for Martha Stewart and Julia Child to reproduce, I could have easily been their baby. Not only do I love decorating cakes with freshly sugared violets and consider homemade chicken pot pie to be an aphrodisiac, but I have actually been mistaken for Martha on numerous occasions. The most humorous incident ocNo Sugar curred in a quaint seaside town in Rhode Island, but that is, once again, a story for another day. Now, although I enjoy all things good and aesthetically pleasing, I am no Martha. And I no longer aspire to be. My life lessons have taught me that the quest for perfection keeps us from true contentment and happiness. I’m proud to say that at this point, I am infinitely more Julia than Martha. Sandi Amorello Julia would throw the rules out the window, drop the chicken on the floor, laugh at the rubbery baguette, use too much butter, and speak her mind. And she’d do it on national television. She was real. And she was joyful. I miss Julia. Martha always seems as if she needs a strong cocktail or two to loosen her up. Even after the whole prison thing. The fact that I am more Julia than Martha was quite apparent one recent evening, as I lay on a hospital table, waiting to have the blood-gushing gash in my left index finger stitched up. Only 90 minutes earlier, I had been in my kitchen, hap-


pily slicing, dicing and dancing to the tunes emanating from my iPod dock. Ophelia, Harold and Charles were playing outside with Boomer, our bunny. It was an idyllic summer evening in Maine, and also the first night all three of my children were together in more than two weeks. This was reason for a celebratory family feast, and I’d stopped at the neighborhood farm on my way home from work to pick up the perfect ingredients: fresh corn, steamers, tiny red potatoes, tender lettuce and a variety of other treats. This was serious cooking. I had even donned an apron. Although I love to cook, I admittedly don’t do it often. Luckily, my children are now old enough to self-feed. As I put multiple pots of water on the stove to boil and scrubbed clams, and as my offspring shucked corn out in the yard, I was suddenly overcome by a feeling of awe. This was it. A rare Martha moment. Something worthy of a magazine layout. I grabbed our camera and snapped photos of the perfection that surrounded me. I then cleared the avalanche of mail off our dining table, lit candles and went back into the kitchen to melt some butter for the steamers: the perfect finishing touch for what would surely be a perfect meal. And then, whack – I sliced one too many slices from that stick of organic, sweet, creamery butter and the whole thing turned into the shower scene from “Psycho.” With a beautiful cloth napkin tourniquet tied around my bleeding appendage, I burst outside through the kitchen door to alert my children. I was certain I said I’d cut myself, but apparently wasn’t very concise, as two of my three children later told me that they had thought the house was on fire. Ophelia (who has her permit) valiantly drove us to a friend’s house, Harold chastised me for using an inappropriate kitchen implement (“You were cutting butter with THAT knife? That’s why they make butter knives”), and Charles,

for once, had nothing to say. The friend drove me to the hospital. By the time the sun had set, I was all stitched up and good to go. A few hours later, we were back at the scene of the crime. We reheated our dinner. We re-lit the candles. And I finally got to drink the glass of Cabernet I had poured (but hadn’t gotten a sip of) before I maimed myself. And as I looked around at our bountiful table, and at Comment on this story at:

‘Enlightened’ by Beem

On behalf of the unwashed and extremist cretins in the readership of The Forecaster, I’d like to thank you for regularly providing us with the sanctimonious pronouncements of Edgar Allen Beem, complete with a photo to remind us of what a thoughtful and benevolent noble he is as he gazes upon the unworthy. It’s apparent that regularly seeing his photo atop the Opinion Page has helped Beem keep his humility in check; there’s no room for that when you’re out to correct the boorish behavior of the little people. We are especially grateful for Beem’s recent reminders that expecting laws to be enforced is the last refuge of unreasonable and insensitive xenophobes. And for clarifying that the word “amendment” as it relates to our Constitution is a childish concept clung to by the jingoistic and otherwise unenlightened. It’s clear that Beem’s view of the “world around him” is having an effect. Just a few weeks ago, he wrote that his mainstream denomination church had something like 180-plus members vote on same-sex issues 10 years ago, but that recently, the 90 or so members voting on the same subject had finally come to their senses and joined the Beem-ians. With numbers like that, how can his influence (and theirs) be denied? Pem Schaeffer Brunswick

Edgar Allen Beem is wasting his time looking for a logical common denominator in Republican positions. They’re pandering to their idea of what people want, or can be made to want through emotional appeals that manage to leave an impression without rousing the critical faculties. Democrats wooing their constituencies do the same thing and call it “fighting fire with fire.” Though firefighters usually use water. If a strong trend to smaller families were to really take hold in our hemisphere, wouldn’t that ease migration pressures that stoke ethnic and border tensions? One would think that those concerned about the latter would favor the former. As goals go, securing our borders and restricting abortion are about as logically inconsistent and unrelated as you can get, but why should that bother folks who choose their opinions based on loyalty rather than the evidence?

Beem should stick to the sweet stuff Shame on you for printing that heinous column, “Bring Back Compassionate Conservatism,” by Edgar Allen Beem. Most who read your weekly paper do so mainly for the “wishful gossip” and humor provided from the Police Beat, as well as to catch up on recent civic and school-related news. If people are looking to read insults spewed toward those who do not share his “leftist-liberal-progressive” views, we could simply go to the editorial section of the Portland Press Herald every single day. For you to devote the editorial section of that particular week to the shortcomings of Michael Doyle from Falmouth, for “sucking up the town’s resources,” yet print another one of Edgar Allen Beem’s irrational rants about what makes one a “true American,” as if he’s not “sucking the life out of civilized social behavior,” seems ironic at best. I understand Mr. Beem’s column, “The Universal Notebook,” is an outlet for his “personal, weekly look at the world around him,” but rest assured, Mr. Beem’s opinion is simply not “universal.” Mr. Beem should stick to writing sweet and touching stories about becoming a grandfather for the first time, because, maybe then, and only then, he would be able to maintain an itty-bitty newborn grasp on the itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie bit of respect he still might have left in this world.

Blinded by the wind Are the Howletts of Yarmouth living in another dimension or are they so blinded by ideology that facts do not matter? There is no empirical evidence anywhere that wind power reduces emissions. All of the studies which state this as fact are actually “conceptual” projections and not measurements of performance. Denmark is the standardbearer of wind development in the world and they were the only industrialized country that failed to meet EU power industry emissions reduction requirements in the last audit. First Wind is the largest developer of wind power in Maine, yet despite taking hundreds of millions of dollars in free government money and guarantees, their operating losses are increasing as they complete each new wind power project. If they fail what happens to their existing projects in Maine? The state has pursued development of wind power in a vacuum void of both actual historical performance data and scope of analyses. Wind power is an intermittent resource being forced upon a grid system that requires dispatchable control and consistency. We can transform the electric power grid system to accommodate wind power, but at great cost and huge risk to reliability. But the real question is why are we mandating a controversial energy source with no proven efficacy when it will not become viable until we have economically viable electricity sequestration?

Paying attention Yesterday morning, when I sat down at the computer, I looked out the window and saw a nuthatch asleep on the bird feeder, its beak resting on the plastic cylinder of black oil sunflower seeds, eyes wide open, motionless as chickadees came and went. I watched it for a while before going outside to check on it, because it is so rare to have a live bird remain so still. When I did step outside, it flew off, startled, to start a new day. The Universal Paying attention to the natural world is getting harder and harder to do. In a certain sense, I’m afraid we all suffer from attention deficit disorder, so distracted are we in our pluggedin, multi-tasking lives. And it’s not just the frenetic pace. I’m beginning to think it’s all the technology as well. I spend so much time online writing, e-mailing, Edgar Allen Beem researching, staring at and into the electronic glow of the computer screen that I sometimes find it hard to focus my eyes when I switch to reading the more stable platform of a newspaper, magazine or book. I won’t be getting a Kindle any time soon. Somehow, the bright seduction of our everyday lives seems to be blinding us to the wonders of the phenomenal world. The other night, for example, Carolyn and I drove out to the edge of town looking for the Northern Lights, but, had they been on display as advertised, the halo of light pollution from shopping centers would have dimmed their celestial dance. But when we sat out in lawn chairs a few nights later to watch the Perseid meteor shower, it wasn’t the lack of darkness that hampered my viewing. The town has unplugged the street light in front of our house as a cost-saving measure, so with the house lights all turned off the backyard sky was clear and black and filled with stars. My problem was that I didn’t know where or how to look. Staring up into the night sky, I found my eyes darting nervously. I could not rest my eyes on the


heavens. I could focus on one star or a constellation of stars, but the harder I watched for the little zips of shooting stars the more frustrating it became. I could not comfortably take in the vastness of the universe. Paying attention has become a problem, but I only notice it when I try to remain still or when stillness is imposed upon me. Earlier this summer, for example, I agreed to pose for a bunch of artist friends who hold a weekly drawing group. I thought it would be easy. It wasn’t. Try sitting perfectly still for 20 minutes at a time over the course of three hours. During the first 20 minutes, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to do it all. I couldn’t figure out where to look, how to focus not only my eyes but my racing mind. And keeping my mouth shut for 20 minutes at a time, remaining quiet as well as still, was almost more than I could bear. Posing did get easier the longer I did it however. By the end of the life drawing session I was actually quite relaxed, having somehow surrendered myself to the gaze of others. Most meditation practices teach that, in order to quiet our busy minds, we have to learn to stop what we are doing and focus our attention on one thing at a time – our breathing perhaps or the silent drone of a mantra. But I’ve never been much good at meditating. Too self-conscious, too aware of what I’m doing to actually do it well I’m afraid. As my own faculties are deteriorating with age, my new grandson Jackson’s are just developing, the world being recreated within him every moment, as it is with every newborn. When Hannah and Chris brought Jackson to Maine for the first time last weekend, I watched him lying Comment on this story at:

there helplessly on his back on a blanket in the yard, saw his obvious delight in the wind and the sunlight playing through the trees, and I was forced to conclude that he was far more comfortable in the natural world at 6 weeks than I am at 61 years. Maybe that’s because he’s just taking it all in, paying attention without worrying about what it all means. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Golfing with a Hall of Famer By Peter Blais It was another beautiful day in a summer that has provided so many.

The Forecaster wil present its seventh annual Portland edition Fall Sports Preview in next week’s edition. Our traditional capsule previews of every varsity sport at each school in our coverge area will be available on our website,, beginning Monday.

Clayton “Tuna” Anderson, the pride of North Yarmouth’s Toddy Brook Golf Course and multi-time Toddy club champion, stood sheepishly on the fifth tee at Salem (Mass.) Country Club. The single-digit handicapper had opened the first four holes of the historic, 115-year-old club – that has hosted five national championships, most recently the 2001 U.S. Senior Open — with an uncharacteristic doublebogey, bogey, bogey and bogey. His thick-legged, thick-chested playing partner sidled up next to him and growled in his ear. “I thought you were a player,” Boston Bruins great Ray Bourque said. “I usually have a little swing oil when I play. Plus, I’m a little nervous playing with you, Ray,” a chagrined Tuna countered, offering the Salem CC member a weak smile. Bourque, a Stanley Cup winner and a National Hockey League Hall of Famer, looked surprised, then replied with a chuckle, “No swing oil while we’re playing here. See that red stake. Just relax and hit the

(expletive) ball straight at it.” Tuna, his Toddy Brook mate Rick Baietti and Waterville golfer John Donato laughed along with the Stanley Cup champ, “who looks like he could still play in the NHL,” Anderson recalled. Bourque spent the rest of the afternoon directing his Maine guests around the course, offering tips on how to play the Donald Ross design. Tuna responded by playing the next 14 holes in even par. “When we played the 14th

hole, a 203-yard, par-3,” Baietti remembers, “we all stuck our drives within 15 feet of the cup. The Salem CC club champ was playing in front of us and asked Ray who we were. Ray replied we were just “farm boys from Maine, but they can play.’” The “farm boys” puffed out their chests, with Anderson and Baietti rolling in birdies while Donato, the current Waterville CC senior champion, matched Bourque’s par. There was a friendly wager on the game. “Let’s just put it this way,”

Baietti said proudly. “Ray had to buy drinks for all at the 19th hole.”

with his wedges, though. Best day of golf I ever had in my life,” Tuna said.

Sharing an adult beverage following their round, Tuna and his newfound NHL Hall of Fame friend perused a scorecard that shows the Toddy Brooker with a 5-over 77 and Bourque with an 82.

Anderson made the trip to Salem CC courtesy of Baietti, the owner of Portland Collision, who won the right for he and two friends to play with Bourque during last October’s STRIVE auction, where Baietti submitted the winning bid. STRIVE is a division of South Portland-based PSL services, designed to help young adults with developmental disabilities.

“When I found out I was playing with three guys from Maine, I thought I’d just be looking for balls in the woods all day. Got to admit, though, you’re pretty coachable,” said Anderson, recalling Bourque’s comments. Sitting in a golf car recently while taking a few moments off from repairing divots on the second hole at Toddy Brook, where the husky hacker splits his time between working on the grounds crew and pro shop desk, Tuna assessed Bourque’s game that mid-summer afternoon. “He hit the ball a ton with his driver. He had a few problems

Anderson calls Salem CC, with its meticulous conditioning and classic white clubhouse, the most beautiful course he ever played. Bourque noted it took him nine years before the club allowed him to become a member.

“That’s the way it should be,” Baietti recalls Bourque saying of his almost-decade-long wait for

Plenty of reasons, opportunities to follow UMaine football in 2010 By Eric Carson Word on the street is that the 2010 University of Maine Black Bears football team is going to be a handful. Most of a solid 2009 defense returns, while the offense has been repaired with the return of Lewiston fullback Jared Turcotte, a freshman All-America selection who missed all of last season. Chris Treister, Portland High’s record-setting quarterback, has returned as a junior after toppling four school records in his debut start last year in Orono. Treister started the final two games of the 2009 season and might finally get his shot to run the Black Bears offense this fall. Treister broke out in Week 8 last year against Rhode Island with a game for the ages, completing 40-of-46 passes for 468 yards and five touchdowns. In his first start, four all-time

passing records were bumped from the school record books. Treister’s 40 completions and his 87 percent completion percentage were both tops in Black Bears’ history. With expectations at an alltime high for Black Bears football, and several players from Western A programs on the roster and most in starting roles, the folks up north want to know where all the Portlandarea fans are. In particular, with players from southern Maine finding jobs with the Black Bears football team, coach Jack Cosgrove and his staff are hoping to get more and more high school football players up to the games on Saturday afternoons. They have some pretty good ideas and deals kicking in this year to try and make it happen. Not feeling the 166-mile drive continued next page

Black Bears open the season hosting the University of Albany at 7 p.m. The is also Military Appreciation Day, with a special Military Tailgate that starts at 4 p.m. and features special pregame and halftime recognition for current and past members of the United States Armed Forces. “Get in the cars, get in the bus and come on up,” said Cosgrove. “I was at the alumni dinner and I told them if anyone out there could fill up a bus and come up for a game the whole bus could stand on the sidelines with us. I meant it. We’re

from previous page to Orono? No problem. The University of Maine has put together a sponsorship program with Shipyard Brewing Co. For home games, fans can gather at the Shipyard restaurant and take chartered coach buses to Orono. The deal includes tailgate provisions, tons of food and Shipyard beer. The program begins Sept. 2, when the

trying to do some different things to get people to come up to the games.” “Four of the last five national champions in the (College Football Subdivision, formerly Division I-AA) have come from the Colonial Athletic Association,” he added. “This past season there were 37 players from the CAA on NFL rosters and seven of them came from Maine. We don’t have a professional sports team here in Maine other than the Sea Dogs, Pirates and the Red Claws, so for football this it. We have great athletes flying around up here and it’s neat to see.” For high school players, the University of Maine offers free admission to any player wearing his high school jersey. And the Albany home opener is High School Football Night, too. Players get in free and their school will be recognized during the game. Free posters and Black

Bear schedules will be handed out, and parents and friends tickets go for just $10. “We have several players from Southern Maine up here competing at this level,” Cosgrove said. “Everybody knows the Chris Treisters and Jared Turcottes, but we have some others guys up here that are a part of this program. They played in the same league as these kids, and now they’re playing in the CAA, the best conference there is at this level. I think that’s a great vision for them to have. They have a chance to go to their home state university and not only get an education, but have the chance to play football.” “Friends and Family Day” has been scheduled for Sept. 25 when the Black Bears host William & Mary. Maine has two more home games left after that with special deals and trip packages available.

An end-of-summer dinner party Here’s a whale of a way to wow people who have entertained you this summer: invite them to an end-of-theseason party featuring this fantastic fish and shellfish minestrone with pesto. Serve a large salad with the soup and, if you like baking, make the bacon-studded French Provencal flat bread to go with it. Everyone will love it. For dessert, fill a large trifle bowl with melon balls — pink (watermelon) and green (honeydew) look very festive.

Fish and Shellfish Minestrone with Pesto The recipe is from Paul Johnson’s “Fish Forever: The Definitive Guide to Understanding, Selecting, and Preparing Healthy, Delicious, and Environmentally Sustainable Seafood,” published by John Wiley & Sons,

2007. Add squid, mussels, shrimp, or octopus to this recipe to make it even grander, if you wish. It’s really at its best with the addition of about six ounces of squid or baby octopus. Serve this with lots of fresh country-style bread and a green salad. 2 cups dry white wine 2 pounds littleneck clams, scrubbed 4 tablespoons olive oil 2 leeks, white part only, halved, rinsed and sliced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 pound ripe tomatoes, diced (about 2 cups) 1 red bell pepper, roasted, peeled and diced 5 ounces Italian green beans (Romano), trimmed and cut into

1-inch sections (about 3/4 cup) 2 cups water 1 1/4 pounds haddock or other white-fleshed fish filets, cut into 1-inch cubes Pesto (recipe follows) In a large pot, bring the white wine to a full boil. Put the clams in the pot, put the cover on tight, and hold in place to create steam pressure; after 2 or 3 minutes, it will become difficult to hold the cover in place from the pressure of all the steam inside. Give the pan a rough shake but don’t look inside. Continue to shake the pan once every 30 seconds for the next 3 minutes; only then can you remove the cover and look inside. Remove the clams when they are just cooked, and reserve them and the stock. In a large, heavy saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and saute the leeks for 2 or 3 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the tomatoes, red pepper, green beans, the reserved clam stock, and the water; simmer for 10 min-

utes. (If adding squid or octopus, give them a quick saute in olive oil and add to the pot now.) Add the fish and cook just until almost opaque throughout, 2 or 3 minutes; return the clams to reheat. Divide among 4 bowls and stir a spoonful of pesto into each. Serves 4 as a main course.


Not only is pesto delicious in dishes, it’s also great for marinating fish destined for the grill. Drizzle pesto over cooked fish, or stir it into a pot of steamed clams at the last minute to make a pasta sauce. Although it is much easier and quicker to make pesto in a blender, the flavor and texture of pesto made with a mortar and pestle is incomparable. If you do use a blender or food processor, crush the garlic and pine nuts in a mortar before adding all the ingredients to the processor. 1 bunch basil, stemmed (about 1 cup packed) 1 to 2 garlic cloves 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt 1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted 1/4 cup olive oil Juice of 1/2 lemon 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese Wash and thoroughly dry the basil leaves. Stack the basil leaves, 10 or 15 at a time, one on top of another, and cut them into julienne, then cut crosswise into fine dice. (The idea is to cut the leaves fine but not work them excessively, preserving the essential oils for the pesto.) Using a large mortar and pestle, pound the garlic and salt until crushed; add the pine nuts and pound to a paste. Add the basil a tablespoon at a time while pounding with the pestle. Continue pounding to work in the olive oil. Season with lemon juice and add the Parmesan. Pesto is always best made fresh, but extra pesto can be stored in the refrigerator for

Out & About

‘Spamalot,’ ‘Forbidden Broadway’ close summer theater season By Scott Andrews Summer may have another month to run on the astronomical calendar, but the fourth week of August marks the beginning of the seasonal slowdown in arts and entertainment. But summer exits with a bang at a pair of playhouses in Ogunquit and Arundel. Ogunquit Playhouse just opened a superb professional production of “Spamalot,” the riotously funny spoof of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table and the quest for the Holy Grail. (And if you’ve noticed that this sounds just like last week’s Out & About, you’re right; this is a second production by another Maine company.) “Forbidden Broadway,” a riotously funny spoof of the Great White Way, its shows and its stars, is the final offering of 2010 at Arundel Barn Playhouse. The show has been playing in New York for most of the past 28 years, but regional theaters like Arundel have only recently been able to obtain the performing rights. As Labor Day looms, so does the annual slowdown in Maine’s arts and entertainment activities. So per usual, Out & About takes a three-week break. But let’s take a quick peak at a couple of jazzy September happenings.

Spamalot’ Good-natured satire and spoof to the max: That’s the core concept of “Spamalot,” one of the funniest and most successful musical comedies to run on Broadway in the early 2000s. The show is based on the medieval English legends of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table and the search for the Holy Grail, but “Spamalot” always adds an hilariously comic and utterly irreverent twist to the familiar story and characters. In the words of the producers, it’s “lovingly ripped off” from the movie, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” With script and lyrics by Eric Idle – a key member of the Monty Python comedy team – and music by John Du Prez and Idle, “Spamalot” was nominated for 14 Tony Awards. It won three, including “Best Musical.” After “Spamalot” closed on Broadway in 2009, the regional performing rights were eagerly sought by professional theater companies. Two Maine troupes were among the five winners. Maine State Music Theater’s superb


Charles Shaughnessy and Rachel York, center, lead the large cast of “Spamalot,” a riotously funny musical spoof of the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table that runs through Sept. 11 at Ogunquit Playhouse.

production was featured here last week. Now we look at Ogunquit Playhouse’s equally fine version. Per normal Ogunquit practice, the cast is headed by a television star – in this case Charles Shaughnessy (“The Nanny”) delightfully portraying King Arthur. Top female of the show – the Lady of the Lake and later Queen Guinevere – is Rachel York, who boasts a long line of credits from Broadway and national tours. But my pick for the best actor is Ogunquit veteran Matthew Greer, as the effeminate knight, Sir Lancelot. I won’t reveal the surprising end of his story arc, but Greer delivers a sensationally energetic and spot-on performance. Greer also doubles as the “French Taunter” and the “Knight of Ni” in two of the show’s funniest scenes. In addition to winning the performing rights, Ogunquit also rented the exquisite costumes, scenery and props – including a very large stuffed cow and a gigantic Trojan Rabbit – from the most recent national tour. On opening night, executive artistic director Brad Kenney told me that these five truckloads of material have been stored in Maine for almost a year. Well worth the trouble. Ogunquit Playhouse, a mile south of the village on Route 1, presents “Spamalot” at various times and dates through Sept. 11. Call 646-5511 or visit

Forbidden Broadway’ Most of the shows produced by Arundel Barn Playhouse are triedand-true Broadway musicals with songs and characters that are familiar to audiences. But Arundel Barn’s current offering will never make it to Broadway. And that’s not because it’s a failure. It’s a long-running success that purposely maintains a safe artistic distance from the Great White Way. “Forbidden Broadway” is a notoriously funny parody of some of American Musical Theater’s most famous shows and its stars. It opened at Arundel Barn last week, and I loved it. “Forbidden Broadway” is a bellybusting laugher from opening curtain to close, and producing artistic director Adrienne Wilson Grant and stage director James Valletti have assembled an excellent professional (non-Equity) cast of two men and three women to deliver this bundle of theatrical joy. The show was conceived and written by Gerard Alessandrini and originally staged Off-Broadway in 1982 – and has been playing more or less continuously ever since. The format is simple – a musical revue comprising 20 sketches, each satirizing a famous Broadway show, star or producer. Alessandrini’s genius is two-fold. First, he finds a salient point or two

as the subject of his mockery. This begins with the opening number, where “Chicago” is lampooned by the fiveactor ensemble. Alessandrini’s targets include director/choreographer Bob Fosse’s famously angular dance poses, skimpy costumes and racy situations. Other target shows include “Annie,” “Into the Woods,” “Wicked,” “Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Rent,” “Spamalot,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Hairspray” and “Cats.” Individuals singled out for spoofing include Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand. Arundel Barn’s cast is outstanding; most have appeared in one or more shows this summer: Alexandra Frankovich, Heather Kopp, Deon Oliverio, Kayla Ricker and Chapman Riedel. At the risk of singling out one for special mention, let’s note Kopp’s delicious rendition of Broadway songstress Ethel Merman. Arundel Barn Playhouse, 53 Old Post Road (just off Route 1) presents “Forbidden Broadway” through Aug. 28. Call 985-5552 or visit

Short takes

Here are a couple of jazzy midSeptember happenings that pique my interest: !ZING is a 14-voice jazz-tinged vocal ensemble under the direction of Charlie Brown. I attended their most recent show and loved this group, all of whom hail from Maine and sing for the love of it. !ZING will be performing Sept. 10 at the Maine Parkinson Society’s benefit dinner-concert, slated for 6 p.m. at the Woodlands Club, 39 Woods Road in Falmouth. Call 800832-4116 or visit Ahmad Hassan Muhammad Trio, a modern jazz group led by the eponymous pianist, plays at the Portland Conservatory of Music, 202 Woodford St., at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 17. Conservatory director Carol Elowe describes this trio as “soulful, adventurous and virtuosic.” They’ve been playing all over New England and now start a national tour. Call 775-3356.

French Provencal Bacon Flat Bread The recipe is from “The Bacon Cookbook” by James Villas, published by John Wiley & Sons, 2007. Except for the characteristic large openings throughout the bread, writes Villas, the yeasty fougasse baked in southern France is similar in taste and texture to the Italian focaccia. Villas says this bread can be served with virtually any dish. He likes to serve it with a salade nicoise or other elaborate salad. It goes very well with the fish and shellfish minestrone with pesto, too. 1 envelope active dry yeast 1 cup lukewarm water 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon salt 1/2 pound slab bacon (rind removed), diced 1 large egg yolk, beaten In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the water and let proof 5 to 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt and stir until well blended. Add the yeast mixture to the flour and stir slowly with a wooden spoon until the dough is slightly spongy, about 12 minutes, adding a little more flour if it becomes too sticky. Form the dough into a ball, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm area until doubled in bulk, about 2 hours. In a skillet, fry the bacon over moderate heat until almost crisp and drain on paper towels, reserving the fat. Grease 2 baking sheets with a little of the bacon fat (or with olive oil) and set aside. Add the bacon to the risen dough and knead until evenly incorporated. Cut the dough into 2 equal pieces, place each on a prepared baking sheet, and press each down to ovals about 1/2-inch thick. With a sharp knife, make 6 slits about 2 inches long in each oval and, with your fingers, separate the slits so you can see the pan below, stretching the dough out at the same time. Cover the ovals with plastic wrap and let rise again until doubled in bulk, 1 to 1½ hours. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. If necessary, separate the slits in the dough again with your fingers, brush each flat bread with egg yolk, and bake in the center of the oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 2 wide flat breads. Susan Lovell and her husband John, a great cook, live near Pat’s Meat Market & Cafe in Portland, with a hungry Maine coon cat and a poodle who eats cat food. An eighthgeneration Mainer, she likes shellfish, steak, baked beans, cole slaw, corn bread, blueberry pie and Moxie. Her great great-grandfather, from Wellfleet, Mass., and his cousin founded Boston’s Union Oyster House and she really likes oysters and Guinness. And Boston cream pie.

Ballots from page 1 including many refugees from war-torn Sudan and Somalia. And while many have children in the school system – and many of those children are U.S. citizens – it takes six to 10 years to become a naturalized citizen. “These are people living in Portland, paying taxes and sending their kids to school,” Everitt said.

Schools from page 1 curriculum with Chief Academic Officer David Galin, who was hired over the summer. Morse said focusing on classroom needs will be a welcome change, now that the School Department has improved financial controls to avoid problems that led to a $2 million shortfall in 2007. “That’s what excites me about year two: we will be focusing on curriculum and kids,” Morse said. “That will be job No. 1 for me.” Elementary school students will be returning to schools with better technology, Morse said. All 10 elementary schools were upgraded with wireless capabilities and will have greater access to laptop computers. Island schools, meanwhile, will be getting new netbook computers, due to smaller-than-anticipated enrollment at the high schools, Morse said. Foreign language will also be offered to elementary students this year. Morse said third-graders will have the option of taking Spanish. “I’m pretty excited by that as well,” he said. Meanwhile, the Ocean Avenue Elementary School is expected to be finished and ready for students by Christmas break, Morse said. Originally scheduled for a May 2011 completion, the school is expected to open five months ahead of schedule and $3 million under budget, he said. Students from Nathan Clifford Elementary School will be moved into the new school for the spring semester, while students who would have attended the old Baxter Elementary School, currently legislation allowing for non-citizen voting rights, mostly on school issues, including Chicago and Tacoma Park, Md. New York City allowed non-citizen voting for Board of Education elections, but has since done away with the school board. Everitt said San Franciscans will be asked in November to approve non-citizen voting for school issues. Non-citizen voting is a divisive issue, though, and some people feel strongly that voting is a right reserved for citizens. City resident Barbara Harvey said she is against allowing non-citizen voting, Comment on this story at:

split between three schools, will have the option of waiting until next year. “It should be as easy as moving youngsters and staff,” he said. “But we have to be careful about how we move (former Baxter) children and engage parents.” Several new principals were hired over the summer. Ira Waltz has replaced Ken Kunin as principal of Deering High School. Waltz, who worked for the district in the 1990s, returns to Portland after being the assistant superintendent of the Wells-Ogunquit Community School District since 2002. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maine at Farmington and a master’s degree from Plymouth State College. Hiram Sibley will be the new assistant principal at King Middle School, where he has worked since 1996. Sibley, who holds a bachelor’s degree from Bates

and instead encouraged non-citizens to become citizens in order to share all of the benefits of being an American. “To vote in this country, you have to pledge allegiance to this flag,” Harvey said. “Once you’re a citizen, I’ll drive you to the polls.” Robert Hains, a regular at City Council meetings, said he, too, opposes non-citizen voting. “They don’t have the right to vote, and College and a master’s from the University of Southern Maine Muskie School of Public Service, started as an ed tech before becoming a lead teacher and teaching strategist. Marcia Gendron has left Reiche Elementary School to become the East End Community School’s new principal. Gendron served as the assistant principal and principal of Reiche since 2000. She holds special education degrees from the University of Maine and a master’s degree from St. Joseph’s College. Paul Yarnevich will take over for Gendron as interim principal at Reiche. Yarnevich has been principal of Lewiston’s Trinity Catholic School. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Northern Arizona University. The new school year also begins with new administrators. Morse said the new team will focus on increasing accountability within the district and unifying curriculum across schools. “We still aren’t finished putting sup-

port structures for budgetary matters,” Morse said. Michael Wilson, a lawyer and certified public accountant, is the district’s chief financial officer and will oversee the its $89.9 million budget. Wilson has been a financial consultant for the last year, after working for the Pierce Atwood law firm in Portland from 1999-2009. Galin was hired as the district’s chief academic officer in June. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Colgate University and a master’s degree from the University of Southern Maine, as well as a USM certificate in educational leadership. He had been the director of curriculum for School Administrative District 51 (Cumberland and North Yarmouth) since 2004, after five years as the teaching and learning coordinator for Falmouth schools. The district is still looking for a chief operating officer. Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

But Councilor Jill Duson said she would vote against the proposal in November.

Gov. Baldacci supplied the following “If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megaanswer in writing when asked why that provision had been left out of his wind watts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission,” power legislation: Mills said. “It’s not just the towers, it’s “I relied on the Task Force members’ the lines – that’s when I begin to think review of the draft legislation as a comthat the goal is a little farfetched.” plete and accurate reflection of all the Uncertain future recommendations in their Report.

task force are dubious as well about whether there really are enough suitable – and politically acceptable – sites to build turbines to meet the goal of 2,000 megawatts by 2015 and 3,000 megawatts by 2020. “We have to look at whether we have the land base to meet them,” Jones said. Reaching 3,000 megawatts “is dependent on whether the political consensus holds up,” said task force member and DEP Commissioner David Littell. “I think it’s a stretch to reach 2,000 by 2015,” said Pete Didisheim of the Natural Resource Council of Maine. But Giffen said he still believes that promoting wind power is an essential response to global warming. “So big picture here, the way that I look at this, is to say, the idea that there’s not going to be any change in the state of Maine as regards our natural resources

or how we generate energy, that’s not a possibility,” he said .

“Is no change something that is even possible?,” Giffen said. “No, it’s not.” LURC Commissioner Laverty takes another perspective:

“I think we need to take into consideration, there aren’t a lot of these 2,700 plus foot mountains in the state of Maine. ... I think that we have to pay special attention to the impact on significant resources in these areas, because once you invade these resources, the chances of re-establishing them over time, at least in our lifetimes, probably are fairly slim.”

thon in October. Every time she participates in the Komen race, Adams said, she is reminded that the fight against cancer is not over, since there is still no cure. “There’s a lot of work to be done,” she said. “And it also reminds me that so many women have gone through this or are affected by it in some way. And, unfortunately, it reminds me that more women will

have to go through this before a cure is found. So it just impresses upon me, the fact that we just have to be relentless in raising awareness and money to find a cure for this disease.” Log onto for more information about next month’s race.

Comment on this story at:

Water District Trustee Ken Levinsky is running unopposed for another term on that board. And, as expected, no one turned in papers for the Peaks Island Council. The lack of candidates means the council will be vacant, because three of the seven seats were up for re-election and the remaining four members have announced they will resign.

The at-large council race includes incumbent Councilors Jill Duson and John Anton. Charles Bragdon is also running for one of the two seats. The at-large School Committee race includes incumbents Jaimey Caron and Kathleen Snyder. Morton Soule hopes to unseat one of them.
