Jetport upgrade taking off A look behind the $75M facelift By Lindsay Tice PORTLAND — On Oct. 2, the Portland International Jetport will officially unveil Phase 1 of its new self, a sleek, modern airport addition with soaring ceilings and tons of glass. Among the new offerings: Travelers who don’t check their bags will be able to walk seamlessly from the parking garage to the airport (so seamlessly it can’t rightfully be called a tunnel), right through security and to their gate. More: Travelers will be able to get ice-packed lobsters to go and families will be able to drop off visiting Aunt Edna more easily. There will even be mood lighting. It’s not your parents’ Jetport. Although Phase 2 won’t finish until February, it’s this first-phase opening that will begin to change the way people in southern Maine travel. Starting Sunday, the public can enter a different way. Travelers will go through security a different way and some will start See page 32

Ocean Approved has applied for two more experimental leases to try growing kelp in different currents as part of project funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The Planning Board on Tuesday denied a developer’s request to build a restaurant at Canal Plaza in the Old Port. Instead, the board issued an alternative recommendation to the City Council to allow the developer to add a floor to two buildings, in exchange for permanent protection of the pedestrian square. The board also questioned the potential impact on traffic from a proposed events center at Thompson’s Point, which now may include an amphitheater. Developer Tim Soley, of East Brown Cow, asked the board for a conditional zone change that would allow him to add executive penthouses to 1 and 3 Canal Plaza, plus a single-story restaurant in what is currently the pedestrian gathering area. Soley said zoning laws would allow him to build a 35-foot building, but he sought a conditional zone change to build smaller and further away from the sidewalk. Soley said the pedestrian plaza is under-utilized, even though his three office buildings are 91 percent occupied. Few people use the square after business hours, especially in the winter months, he said. “Such voids are usually filled with elements that are not controlled,” he said, noting his staff often has to shoo away skateboarders and bicyclists. Adding a restaurant, he said, would make it inviting, pedestrian friendly and “feel alive. But several tenants of the See page 25

Unsung Hero: Meghan Mette, fiddling for the bay By David Treadwell CAPE ELIZABETH — Some lucky people discover a passion in life that feeds the soul. Meghan Mette avidly pursues two such passions, Irish fiddle music and marine biology, and she’s only 18 years old. Moreover, she’s making the world a better place in the process. Mette began taking classical violin lessons at age 4, following the Suzuki instruction method. Two years later she tried her hand at Irish fiddle music and got hooked. “Playing traditional Irish music energizes me and gets me up in the morning,” Mette said. “If people don’t pass on the tradition, it will die out.” Mette is doing her part. She practices for three to four hours most days (“In the basement, so no one hears me”), and often plays gigs around town. “I love playing the music and having people clap and stomp their feet,” said Mette, who doesn’t take lessons, but often plays with 10-time Irish National Fiddle Champion Seamus Connolly, now a Maine resident. As a student at Waynflete School in Portland, Mette was no fan of science until her junior year when she took a course in marine biology. “I fell in love with it,” she

said. “Biology is all around us, and I’ve always loved the ocean.” During the summer after her junior year, Mette volunteered with the Friends of Casco Bay. Her duties included monitoring water quality around the Casco Bay. “They have a wonderful group of people, and it was great being out on the water.” During her last year at Waynflete, Mette had a bright idea for her independent study project: Make a CD of her fiddle music and donate the proceeds to the Friends of Casco Bay. She did just that. Her 14-track debut CD, “First Day,” which includes several of her own compositions, came out in June, and she was able to donate $1,000 to the organization as a result. “Meghan’s interdisciplinary approach to life is so enriching to be around,” said Cathy Ramsdell, Friends of Casco Bay executive director. “She’s a star at whatever she does.” Mette’s future looks as bright as her past, too. She’s been accepted to Oberlin

College, where she’ll major in marine biology and minor in music. But first she’ll spend some time in Ireland at University College in Cork, where she’ll delve even deeper into traditional Irish fiddle music. “You can just walk into a pub, sit down and play with other people,” Mette said. “You learn three or four tunes in a session and make some new friends.”
Mette has already made a big difference in her life, and she’ll continue to do so, propelled by her focus and enthusiasm. “There’s so much wrong in the world; we have a lot to conquer,” she said. “You have to start somewhere.” Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/101314

First lady to visit Portland as legislators vote on redistricting By Randy Billings PORTLAND — First lady Michelle Obama will be in town Friday to raise money for her husband’s presidential reelection campaign. The fundraiser comes the same week
the state Legislature is voting on a congressional redistricting plan that could have an impact on the 2012 presidential election. The Maine Democratic Party said in a press release that Obama will be at a
Green building tour opens homes, businesses to the public By Emily Parkhurst FALMOUTH — Homes and businesses throughout the region will be open for anyone to stroll through on Saturday, Oct. 1, all in the name of green energy. “This isn’t a house-beautiful tour, this is about energy,” said Falmouth resident Claudia King, who is also chairwoman of the town’s recycling and energy committee. King’s home, on Woodville Road, will be open during the tour. She recently retrofitted the building with solar panels, a wood stove, an air service heat pump that extracts heat from the air outside and brings only that air inside, and insulation. She said she is hoping her home will become a net-zero energy house. “We really paid attention to the building envelope, the insulation, windows and doors,” King said. In addition to King’s house, the Gorham Savings Bank on Route 1, the new Falmouth Elementary School on Woodville Road and another Falmouth residence will be open to the public.

Buildings in Freeport, Portland and Scarborough are also on the list, which can be found at nesea.org/greenbuildings. Anyone with a home or business that they’d like to add to the tour can do that on the website, too. “You can go on the website and create your own tour,” King said. “It’s open to people from anywhere, there’s no admission.” Most locations are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but King suggested checking the website to be sure before heading out. The event is organized by the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association to encourage people and businesses to explore and consider green energy options. Last year more than 10,000 visitors toured nearly 500 locations around New England. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

1 p.m. reception at the Ocean Gateway Terminal. Tickets for the event range from $100 a person to $5,000. Maine Democratic Party Executive Director Mary Erin Casale said that’s a “reasonable price” for Mainers to hear the Obama. “We’re almost sold out,” she said. Obama, who has made military families and nutrition a centerpiece over the last three years, will be talking about the current political landscape and President Barack Obama’s vision for a second term in office. Casale said Michelle Obama is also expected to attend a luncheon in Cape Elizabeth before the Portland reception. Acting Police Chief Michael Sauschuck said his department is working with federal officials on security for the first lady. Sauschuck it was too soon to announce street closures or say whether
there would be any significant traffic impact in the Old Port. “That’s something that will be worked out,” he said. City Hall spokeswoman Nicole Clegg said the event is not expected to disrupt a busy week of cruise ship traffic. Seven ships carrying more than 18,000 people are scheduled to visit Portland this week, she said. Obama’s visit comes as the Legislature is redistricting the state. Maine is one of two states that awards electoral college votes according to popular votes in each congressional district.

Water district election pits contractor against watchdog By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Voters on Nov. 8 will choose between a construction contractor and an environmental watchdog for an open seat on the Portland Water District Board of Trustees. The five-year seat is currently held by David Margolis-Pineo, who is not seeking re-election. The district provides water and environmental services to more than 190,000 people in 11 greater Portland communities.

It is governed by an 11-member Board of Trustees that includes four Portland representatives. In fiscal 2011, the district had an operating budget of nearly $37.4 million. It employs nearly 200 people. Cleaves Bradford S. Cleaves, of 122 Salem St., and John W. Safarik, of
24 Ivy St., are vying to replace MargolisPineo. Cleaves is a 63-yearold general contractor who has never sought a publicly elected office. He said he was encouraged to run by an existing trustee, because of his 35 years Safarik of construction experience.

Little Diamond Island. But city election administrator Bud Philbrick said incumbent Scott Johnston, of 1 Strawberry Lane in Yarmouth, has declared a write-in candidacy. Philbrick said Johnston is eligible because he owns property on the island. Incumbent Patrick Flynn, of Centenial Street, will be the only name on the ballot to represent Peaks Island. But Philbrick said Robin Clark, of Welch Street, has declared a write-in candidacy. Philbrick said voters on all of the islands served by CBITD will cast ballots for every race. Mainland city voters do not vote, he said. The CBITD is governed by a 12-member board: 10 elected from the islands, one appointed by the city, and one appointed by the commissioner of the state Department of Transportation. Three members represent Peaks Island, and two members are at-large. Great Diamond, Little Diamond, Long, Chebeague and Cliff islands have one representative each.
The board, along with its subcommittees, oversees all aspects of the managing the Casco Bay Lines, including fares, schedules, union contracts and employing the executive director. Directors serve three-year terms. The CBITD currently has a $5 million budget, according to Executive Director Henry Berg. Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or email@example.com.

Picking a mayor: The candidates on strengthening neighborhoods Third in a weekly series on where Portland’s mayoral candidates stand on issues facing the city. By Randy Billings PORTLAND — It may be a city of about 65,000 residents, but Portland can seem smaller at times because of its many distinct geographic neighborhoods. Besides Peaks, Cliff, Great Diamond and Little Diamond islands, the city’s website lists 21 different neighborhood associations, which are primary vehicles for sending concerns and ideas to City Hall. Associations are typically the front lines of issues large and small – from trash and graffiti to pot holes to commercial and residential development. But many of the candidates running to be Portland’s first popularly elected mayor in 88 years said this week the city needs to do a better job reaching out and listening to neighborhood residents. They offered a range of ideas to strengthen communication with neighborhoods, including informal coffee-shop talks, door-to-door fact-finding tours, protecting neighborhood schools, setting up “community houses” and encouraging community yard sales. Democrat Jodie Lapchick, 49, said the mayor should help neighborhoods organize. As a founding member of the West End Neighborhood Association, she it was difficult getting that group off the ground. She would like to create a centralized website with tools offering advice and best practices for residents looking to do the same. Lapchick said one resident told her that “every neighborhood needs a truck,” meaning residents need to find ways to share resources and help one another. Markos Miller (unenrolled), a former president of the Munjoy Hill Neighborhood

Organization, said he believes his experience sets him apart from other candidates. The 43-year-old teacher said the group took hold of the visioning process for the former Adams School, which lead to the creation of 16 units of affordable housing. Miller, who also cited his work on the Franklin Street redesign committee and work on the Bayside vision, said the city should put more effort into neighborhoodbased planning. The city should reinvest in the city’s neighborhood services department, he said. City Councilor and Green Independent David Marshall also supports neighborhood-based planning, which seeks residential input early in the planning process. He said he would use that feedback to develop a vision and then work to secure funding to implement the plan. Marshall, 33, said he would use his work with the St. John Valley Neighborhood Association, which tapped planning students at USM’s Muskie School for street and intersection improvements, as model for other communities. Democrat Jed Rathband, who served in the East Bayside Neighborhood Organization, said North Deering could have benefited from neighborhood-based planning. He said the Walgreens and Rite Aid stores on Washington Avenue don’t improve livability, and actually drive down property values. Instead, Rathband, 39, said the city should work with neighborhoods, as they did in Bayside, to identify potential parcels for development and ask residents what they want, using that information to help developers. Associations should be allowed

to pre-approve projects, giving them more ownership in the planning process, he said. Democrat Ethan Strimling, a former state representative, said he would also have the city manager’s neighborhood advisory group meet on a regular basis to get input. But Strimling, 43, said he would also go door-to-door in each neighborhood, much like his election campaign, to get input from residents who may not have a wellorganized neighborhood association. “It’s really about getting out of City Hall and going out to talk to people,” he said. Like Strimling, Democrat Michael Brennan, a former state senator, said the mayor must balance neighborhood preservation with development. He said he would look to Munjoy Hill and Deering Center as models, suggesting that businesses like Rosemont Market and Siano’s “promote commerce and protect neighborhood integrity.” Brennan, 58, said it’s also important to have quality schools in “all neighborhoods,” so he would work closely with school officials during the budget season, while also helping to reassure parents who children attend “failing schools” under the federal No Child Left Behind act. Green-Independent John Eder, 42, said he is an “ardent localist” who sees residents as the first unit of government. He would look to uses neighborhoods as a proving ground for ideas in an effort to “move feet to City Hall,” Eder said. Eder said he would like to expand neigh-
borhood centers like those in Parkside and Munjoy Hill to other neighborhoods. He would look to bolster public safety by increasing the number of police cadets, where non-sworn staff patrol the streets and use radios to call in suspicious and illegal activity. Democrat Ralph Carmona, 60, said neighborhood associations could benefit from a more standardized approach, so they can be better integrated into the planning process. He said he has met with four different associations and “none of them feel effective.” As an example, Carmona cited Walnut Street on Munjoy Hill, which the city turned into a one-way street, only to reverse course later after public opposition. While he would identify community leaders and rely on them to get feedback from the neighborhoods, Carmona said he would also attend neighborhood meetings on a regular, even quarterly, basis. City Councilor Jill Duson, a 57-year-old Democrat, said people shouldn’t have to “light the torches and storm the castle” to get the city to listen. The mayor needs to be accessible in each neighborhood, she said. To do that, Duson said she would hold formal coffee talks in each neighborhood,

The eyes have it Guide dog trainers give a lot, get a lot in return PORTLAND — Raising and training a dog as a personal pet can be hard, but rewarding. Raising and training a guide dog can much harder, but much more rewarding, according to several area residents who raise puppies for the local chapter of Guilding Eyes for the Blind, an internationally certified guide dog school. “My favorite match of all time was my puppy Alexa with Abigail, an 18-year-old young woman who was going to college in the fall,” Diane Clark, of Peaks Island, said recently. “Together they took off to another state and have made a real place for themselves. I hear from Abigail quite often and she keeps me up to date with Alexa.” “On one hand, I saw my dog that I adored and would have given anything to have back. But on the other hand, I saw something that made me so proud I thought my heart would burst,” said Clark, who is now raising Rave, a 5-month-old black Labrador. “Giving back a puppy I have raised for months is still difficult, but I would not change a moment of the time I have spent with this program.” Volunteer puppy raisers and trainers prepare guide dogs to help blind or visually impaired adults or autistic children live better lives. Currently, 15 pups are being raised by volunteers and their families across Maine.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/100405
Nina Scribner of Yarmouth is raising Rave’s sister, Rosemary, the 18th puppy in her 26 years as a puppy raiser for the Guiding Eyes organization. “The relationship between puppy raisers and the pups is the foundation for all the life lessons a guide dog needs to master,” Scribner said. “We now have shifted to relationship centered training to teach pups how to make the correct decisions. We try not to manage and control but to be patient and give the pups time.” One of the differences between raising a personal dog and a future guide dog is that more rules and consequences apply to them. “Guide dogs cannot play in some of the same ways that personal dogs can,” Clark said. “If a personal dog takes a shoe and moves it, it’s no big deal. If a guide dog takes a shoe and moves it, a blind person won’t be able to find it. So we have to reward them when they walk past it. It makes socializing with non-guide dogs difficult because they don’t follow the same rules.” Working guide dogs live two lives. At home they are, overall, like any other personal dog. But when the harness is on, it is a signal that special rules apply and their master is relying on them to make life-saving decisions. Among many other things, guide dogs learn how to identify hazards and curbs, when to cross the street, and how to tune out distractions. Volunteer puppy raisers receive the pups

when the dogs are 8 weeks old and nurture and train them for 14 to 16 months. If the dogs pass their final evaluations and are accepted into the program, they are transferred to the Guiding Dogs Training Center in New York. Eventually, if they graduate from the program, they are matched with a blind or vision-impaired person or child with autism. One way to learn about the responsibilities and what to expect from puppy raising is by puppy sitting for current Guiding Eyes’ puppy raisers and attending preplacement classes. Guiding Eyes focuses on helping volunteers integrate the pups into their lives, not structuring their lives around the dogs. Larry and Janet Amberger are puppy raisers from Cape Elizabeth. The Ambergers have raised four pups and estimate they’ve spent roughly 1,500 hours and $1,200 a year training each of them. Their most recent pup, Amity, went in for training in continued page 11

Bresca Day to open, Arby’s closes, L.F.K. moves in By Amy Anderson Beginning at the end of October, Bresca in Portland will be open during the day to offer pastries, sandwiches and light lunches. Owner and recent James Beard Award nominee Krista Kern Desjarlais said that after Columbus Day and some minor aesthetic interior alterations, she will reduce dinner service to four days a week at the 111 Middle St. eatery and open a bakery and lunch spot during the day. Bresca Day will be European in style, open from late morning to mid-afternoon with fresh pastries, salads and local seasonal fare, she said Monday. Customers will be able to take the food to go or sit in with their children and friends. Coffee and espresso drinks will be provided by Matt’s Coffee of Pownal. As a new mother, Desjarlais said she wants to focus more on pastries and baking and offer a space that is comfortable for children. “It will be the same as Bresca, but more casual in spirit,” she said. “This is not going to change what we already offer, but I’d like to be able to do what I know how to do well. (Bresca Day) will be indicative of who I am and what Bresca is.” She said customers can check the restaurant website for more information in the coming weeks and can expect a Facebook page soon. At Longfellow Square in Portland, owners and partners Johnny Lomba and John Welliver of Portland are planning to open L.F.K. in the 188 State St. space formerly occupied by Cunningham Books. According to documents provided to the Portland City Council a few weeks ago, the restaurant will be open 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and serve mostly appetizers, drinks and wine. Arby’s at 285 Forest Ave. in Portland has closed after 26 years in business. Jim Raffel continues as owner of the franchises in Auburn, Augusta and at the Maine Mall in South Portland. Raffel, whose father and uncle were co-founders of Arby’s in 1964 (Arby’s stands for the initials of the Raffel Brothers, R.B.), said the Forest Avenue real estate was sold and sales at the restaurant weren’t strong enough to continue. Portland City Hall spokeswoman Nicole Clegg said a bank is expected to take over the location; a sign on the fence around the property suggests it will be cPort Credit Union. Portland’s first gluten free bakery Bam Bam Bakery – is open at 267 Commercial St. Owner and baker Bevin McNulty will provide customers with muffins, cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, whoopie pies and cookies from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The East Ender at 47 Middle St. in Portland is now also home to Holy Donut, a donut and coffee shop open from 7:30-10 a.m. Customers can choose from a variety of treats including the Maine potato doughnut, ginger sweet potato, buttermilk with Maple glaze, the ricotta donut, and the bacon and sharp cheddar potato donut.
The 11th annual March of Dimes benefit will take place Oct. 12 at 5:30 p.m. at Dimillo’s on the Water in Portland. Chefs from Dimillo’s, Figa, Nosh Kitchen Bar, The Salt Exchange, Porthole, Zapoteca and Hannaford will prepare signature dishes during a cocktail reception. Guests will also be able to bid on many live and silent auction items, including unique dinners, hotel stays, and weekend getaways, all graciously donated by Maine businesses.

Greg Gilam, the chef who originally opened the cafe in 1998, is back in the kitchen. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday, starting at 5:30 p.m. A German restaurant, Schulte & Herr, has opened at 349 Cumberland Ave., Portland. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Yarmouth Farmers’ Market added another vendor, Pizza By Fire of Cape
Elizabeth, to its Thursday afternoon lineup. The mobile artisan wood fired pizza company is owned by Andrew Steinberg. He specializes in baking thincrust Neapolitan-style pizzas with local ingredients. The Yarmouth Farmers’ Market is on Thursday, 2:30 to 6:30 p.m., at the Town Hall Memorial Green. Three finalists have been selected to compete in the Maine Lobster Chef of the Year competition.

If not for my parsimony at the bar and my iron will around the buffet, I’d be tipping the scales at – a higher number than I currently do. Networking can be a highimpact activity. Chamber and networking events have a common purpose, of course, aside from testing our caloric resolve. The goal is to put people together in a comfortable setting in which conversation ensues and from which business activity may be generated. Common purpose aside, however, community business-to-business events reflect the unique communities in which the participating businesses are located.

Global Matters from previous page even now, after the mission has departed Maine. It’s important to mention, of course, that Portland got into the act as well. After the delegation left Bangor, dozens of one-on-one meetings took place in southern Maine, as industry associations like the E2Tech Council, TechMaine and the Maine Chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies spread the word. In fact, the New Brunswickers were fully booked here in southern Maine. The visit couldn’t have been much more productive. But there was something about the feeling in Bangor that was different; it was almost a sense of kinship, and it brought back memories of days when we focused on business not only because of the business, but because of the people. Folks in Bangor don’t feel the gravitational pull to Boston or New York the way we do in southern Maine. In the Bangor area, New Brunswick license plates and east-west traffic reflect a natural synergy anchored by the Irving companies, McCain Foods, Cianbro Corp., the University of Maine and everything in between. Bottom line: I’m sure we’ll see more business done between Maine and New Brunswick as a result of this delegation’s visit. It’s good to know that businesses on both sides of the border will be finding ways to prosper together. But it’s just as good to know that Bangor’s faith in cross-border trade remains undiminished. We didn’t have to ask the people in Bangor twice. As I said, when it comes to cross-border trade, Bangor gets it. Perry B.

Worried about wireless? This summer I had the opportunity to spend several weeks researching the contentious issues surrounding the wireless “smart” meters that Central Maine Power is installing all over its coverage area. Often I already have an opinion on a subject when I begin researching it, but in the case of smart The Universal meters I did not. I knew they were controversial, that some people believe they pose serious health and safety threats, but I really didn’t know what I thought.
The Public Utilities Commission had mandated an opt-out for CMP customers, so what I was really trying to decide as I did my research for a magazine Edgar article was whether we should have a smart meter installed on our house or not.
After interviewing CMP officials, smart-meter opponents, PUC members and staff, and scientists pro and con; reading reams of reports and orders and websites, I came to the conclusion that people worried about the impact of wireless smart meters have legitimate concerns. But I still decided to let CMP (or rather its contractor) replace my old mechanical meter with a smart meter. While I do not believe that CMP has done an adequate job informing its customers and the general public about the issues raised by smart-meter technology (individual sensitivity to radio-frequency exposure, possible links to cancer, interference with other wireless devices, privacy and private property issues, billing errors that can arise from remote reporting of electricity use, etc.), I do believe that, in the words of CMP spokesman John Carroll, CMP “kind of walked into a wireless debate.”

I sit here all day next to a wireless router that enables family members to use laptop computers all over the house. I walk around all day with a cell phone in my pocket and, when I use it, I hold it up to my head. Cafes, hotels, libraries and schools increasingly have Wi-Fi networks. Heck, RF waves somehow manage to find our wireless devices in cars speeding down the turnpike and atop Mt. Katahdin. There is no escape from wireless. Smart meter opponents point out that most other forms of wireless technology are voluntary and that people sensitive to RF can limit their exposure. Smart meters are on all the time. In a city, even if you don’t have a smart meter, you may get zapped by your neighbor’s meter. Believing that wireless technology is inescapable, I did not opt out of the smart meter program, but I probably would have if not for the financial penalty for doing so. Should you decide, for whatever reason, that you do not want a smart meter broadcasting from your home, the PUC has authorized CMP to charge you a one-time fee of $40 plus $12 a month. That’s $144 a year for life to avoid a possible health risk. Some smart-meter opponents call that extortion. I wouldn’t go that far, but given all the unanswered questions about smart meters, I do believe that the financial penalty for opting out should be eliminated. You shouldn’t have to pay to not get something. CMP fears that if opting out were free, so many customers might do so that the smart-meter network would have too many holes to function effectively. If that turns out to be the case, so be it. A little less radiation in our lives wouldn’t be a bad thing. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth. The Universal Notebook is his personal, weekly look at the world around him.
The problem is not smart meters, it’s ubiquitous wireless technology.

Guide dogs from page 6 early August. They expected to receive their next pup, Floral, this month. “We are very enthusiastic about this program. Giving the gift of increased freedom of movement to a seeing-impaired person is emotionally rewarding,” Larry Amberger said. “We think (the Guiding Eyes program) is great training for a personal puppy as well. I would apply some of the same methods,” Janet Amberger added. A 4-year-old yellow Labrador, Obie, lives with the Ambergers now. He was too distracted by other dogs at the training center and was released after approximately 6 months. Obie is now a certified therapy dog. Eight Guiding Eyes dogs have served as certified therapy dogs at Maine Medical Center. “According to the National Eye Institute, 3.3 million Americans live with blindness or vision loss,”said Lee-Anne Leverone, Guiding Eyes regional coordinator for Maine. “Due to the aging population, this number is projected to reach 5.5 million

New Procedure Offers Facelift Without Surgery
P H OTO G R A P H E R
Warming hearts and freezing time since 1999.
The Dermatology office of Dr. Joel Sabean in South Portland has just introduced a non-surgical ultrasound therapy for counteracting the effects of time and gravity on your skin. This procedure, called Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gradually restore memory to the skin and underlying tissue. According to Dr. Sabean “Baby boomers are unique in they are the first generation that wants to look like they feel, and don’t want to feel like they look.” And that’s what this new treatment offers, the possibility of a freshened and younger look. But while surgery has always been an option, this ultrasound therapy can provide many of the same results, but is completely noninvasive. This treatment uses ultrasound
which has been in use for over 50 years in medical procedures. It works by applying low levels of heat to just the right depth beneath Dr. Sabean the surface of the skin. The natural response of the skin to this energy is to stimulate the growth of collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, which results in a natural lift of the skin over time. “There’s two components, there’s an immediate lift for most people and then there’s a late lift that works in ninety five plus percent.” says Sabean. Because this treatment utilizes ultrasound, it is the only procedure that allows the practitioner to see
below the surface of the skin, thereby allowing them to specifically target the area to be treated. As with surgery, the deep foundational layers of the skin are treated. Because the skin is treated so precisely, from the inside out, the procedure is both safe and effective, with no down time. Dr. Sabean comments “with this procedure people can literally walk out and then go to the gym.” There is slight discomfort while the treatment is being performed, but it is quite low and dissipates quickly. This is an indication that the collagen-building process has been initiated. This is in fact one of the key benefits of this procedure. Esthetician Michelle Correia says of her patients, “They’re very excited for something that they can do within the hour, and then it will be
their own body naturally repairing itself.” Those who are good candidates for this procedure include people whose skin has relaxed to the point of looking and feeling less firm. A lowered brow line, sagging skin on the eyelids, loose neck skin or the appearance of jowls are often the first signs of maturing skin. Ultherapy has been available in Europe for over 4 years, and has proven to be an inviting alternative to surgery. It has been in the U.S. for just over a year. For More information about Ultherapy, contact the office of Dr. Joel Sabean: 350 Cottage Road, S. Portland

Deering earns historic win over Portland Cheverus improves to 4-0
Jason Veilleux / For The Forecaster
Portland junior Nick Volger looks to break out of a tackle during the Bulldogs’ 28-7 loss at Deering Friday night.
(Ed. Note: For the complete Cheverus-Sanford game story, with photos and a box score, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer Friday night’s showdown wasn’t just any Deering-Portland football game. No, it was one for the record books, the 100th all-time (nonThanksgiving Day) showdown and it went the way of the home team, as the Rams improved to 4-0 with a 28-7 victory over the now 2-2 Bulldogs. Deering had downed visiting Noble and won at Windham and Kennebunk to start the year. Portland, meanwhile, was blanked at Massbesic in the opener, then rolled to a win at Noble and held off visiting Gorham. The Bulldogs entered Friday’s contest with a 61-28 edge over the Rams, with the other 10 meetings ending in ties. The series dates to 1891. Included in that tally are three playoff games (Portland won in 2001 and 2002, while Deering eliminated the Bulldogs in 2003). Portland hung tough for a quarter and the game was scoreless in the second period when the Rams got the jump, thanks to their special teams. Trey Thomes returned a blocked punt 51-yards to break the ice and Brandon Saucier added an extra point to make it 7-0 with 9:31 left in the first half. Deering went up 14-0 thanks to a 19-yard touchdown pass from Matt Flaherty to Matt Kimball with 4:26 remaining before halftime. Two minutes into the third period, Nick DiBiase’s 1-yard TD run stretched the Rams’ lead to 21-0. The Bulldogs got on the board with 1:32 to go in the third when Jayvon Pitts-Young scored on a 14-yard run, but Deering accounted for the 28-7 final score when
Flaherty hit Renaldo Lowry for a 37-yard TD with 9:48 left to play. The Rams hope to improve to 5-0 Friday when they host 3-1 Thornton Academy. Portland looks to go back over the .500 mark Friday when it visits 1-3 Windham. Elsewhere, defending Class A state champion Cheverus remains perfect and extended its win streak to 16 games Saturday with an emphatic 41-8 home romp over Sanford. The Stags opened the year with a 59-21 home victory over South Portland, then rolled at Gorham (35-0) and Bonny Eagle (42-18). Saturday, Cheverus made the most of its return home, taking the opening kickoff and driving for a 39-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Cam Olson to senior Louie DiStasio. Senior Spencer Cooke added a 17-yard TD run and it was 14-0 Stags after one quarter. In the second period, Cooke scored on a 4-yard run and Olson hooked up with DiStasio (38-yards) and Cooke (24-yards) for TDs and a 35-0 lead at the break. Cheverus removed its starters in the third quarter and the reserves struck once more, on an 18-yard run from sophomore Will Hilton. Sanford finally got on the board in the fourth, but the Stags went on for the 41-8 triumph. “Sanford’s a good football team,” said Stags coach John Wolfgram. “I thought we showed versatility and were efficient. I thought we played with good emotion. It definitely was a positive game for us.” Olson finished 9-of-11 for 228 yards and three scores and acknowledged that while Saturday was his moment to shine, that Cheverus’ bread and butter is still the running game. “The most important thing my

Fall sports season passes midway point (For the complete DeeringSouth Portland boys’ soccer and Cheverus-Scarborough field hockey game stories, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer As September gives way to October, all fall sports are heating up and playoff jockeying is underway. Here’s a glimpse at where local squads stand:
Boys’ soccer Cheverus’ boys’ soccer team bounced back from its first loss of the year with 2-0 victory at Windham and a 5-0 home triumph over Kennebunk. Against the Eagles, Eliot Maker scored twice. In the win over the Rams, Maker had a hat trick and Tyler Friedman and Jake Smith also scored. The Stags (5-1 and seventh in the Western Class A Heal Points
standings, as of Monday) have a big test at Portland Tuesday (see theforecaster.net for the game story), host Westbrook Thursday and welcome Thornton Academy Tuesday of next week. Deering suffered two tough losses a week ago to fall to 3-3 (12th in Western A). After falling, 4-0, at Gorham, the Rams lost at home to South Portland, 2-0. “We haven’t played soccer in
the past three games,” Deering’s first-year coach Joel Costigan said. “We’ve gone backwards in our playing. We have a lot of soul searching to do. We need to clean up our attitudes and stay positive and overcome. We’re a far better team than we’ve played the past three games. It’s going to get harder from here.” The Rams were back in action Tuesday at powerhouse
Scarborough. Saturday, Deering goes to Thornton Academy. Tuesday of next week, the Rams play host to Kennebunk. Portland blanked visiting Biddeford, 8-0, last Tuesday and held off host Westbrook, 4-2, Friday to improve to 5-1-1 (fifth in the region). Against the Tigers, Guled Hussain-Ali scored three

coaches advocate for me is stepping into a throw,” Olson said. “When you step into a throw, it’s easy. We were on the right page today. It’s always about the running game. It’s never not going to be. (Coach Wolfgram) sets us up in a great position to have the running game down, then switch to something else. He’s the mastermind and always has been.” “(Cam’s) a smart football player and he played very well,” Wolfgram added. “He knows what he’s doing. He was very accurate. He made good decisions.” DiStasio caught four passes for 146 yards and two TDs. Cheverus looks to keep on keeping on when it welcomes 2-2 Scarborough in a rematch of last year’s regional semifinal playoff thriller (won by the Stags, 21-14). That game is Saturday with a special start time of 3:30 p.m., due to SAT testing. A home game against Biddeford and trips to city rivals Portland and Deering still

Recap from page 13 times, while Alan Tuyishime added two goals. Hunter Andreason, Patrick Jabo and Emmanual Muya also scored. In the win over the Blue Blazes, Tim Rovnak had two goals, Hussain-Ali and Ralph Houanche the others. The Bulldogs hosted Cheverus Tuesday, visit Massabesic Thursday and play host to Marshwood next Tuesday. In Western C, Waynflete 4-0-2 and fifth in the Heals. Last week, the Flyers were a 6-0 home winner over Traip, then battled visiting Sacopee to a scoreless draw. Elyse Bayizere had two goals in the victory.

Waynflete was home against Wells Monday, plays at Sacopee Wednesday, rival North Yarmouth Academy Friday and Gray-New Gloucester Tuesday of next week.
Girls’ soccer On the girls’ side, Cheverus continues to play well. Last Tuesday, the Stags held off visiting Windham, 2-0, behind goals from Sade Lyons and Eden Monsen. Cheverus was scheduled to face Kennebunk and Sanford as well, but both of those games were postponed. The Stags (4-0-1 and fourth in the Western Class A Heals) are home against Portland Wednesday and go to Westbrook Friday. Deering suffered a pair of losses last week to fall to 4-3 (11th in the Heals). The Rams fell to visiting Thornton Academy (3-0) and at South Portland (2-0). Deering hopes to bounce back Wednesday, but faces the tall task of hosting defending Class A state champion Scarborough. The Rams are at McAuley Saturday.
Speaking of the Lions, they got in the win column with a 1-0 triumph at Bonny Eagle last Thursday (Olivia Smith had the goal and Molly Miller was once again stellar between the pipes). That came on the heels of a scoreless tie against South Portland. Gorham was due to pay a visit Saturday, but the field was too wet and the game was postponed to a yet to be determined date. McAuley (1-4-1 and 14th in the standings) was at Marshwood Tuesday and comes home to meet Deering Saturday. Portland is still winless. The Bulldogs dropped games last week at Biddeford (3-2) and at home to Westbrook (2-1) and Bonny Eagle (2-1). After visiting Cheverus Wednesday, Portland (0-8 and 19th in the region) welcomes Massabesic Saturday. In Western C, Waynflete began the week 5-1 and fourth in the Heal Points standings. Last week, the Flyers downed host Traip (5-1) and visiting Freeport (21). Against the Raiders, Becky Smith had a hat trick and Rhiannan Jackson and Ella Millard also tickled the twine.

The Flyers were at Old Orchard Beach Monday, host Sacopee Wednesday and visit NYA Saturday.

We love that.” The Stags (third in the Western A Heals) went to South Portland Monday, host Gorham Wednesday and play at Kennebunk Tuesday of next week. Deering was a 1-0 home loser to Westbrook and played host Bonny Eagle to a 1-1 tie last week. Amanda LeMoult had the Rams’ goal in the tie.

Thursday, Cheverus went to Scarborough and suffered its first loss in nine games, 2-1. Sarah LaQuerre had the Stags’ goal, but it wasn’t enough. “It was a good game, but I think for us, we didn’t play well,” said Cheverus

Why the Red Sox will win the World Series (seriously)
(Ed. Note: This article was written prior to this week’s final series in Baltimore, which may have made the following completely irrelevant) By Bryan O’Connor I’ll give you a minute to clean up whatever you spit all over your keyboard/ newspaper when you read the title. All clean? Ok, here we go. The Boston Red Sox, fresh on the heels of one of the more pathetic Septembers in baseball history, will win the 2011 World Series.
anonymous relief corps won’t stymie potential comeback rallies. 2) The Red Sox have the best offense in baseball Boston scored 5.5 runs per game this season, more than any other team in baseball. Sure, Fenway Park boosts their numbers a bit, but the only other teams within 100 runs, the Rangers and Yankees, play in big-time hitters’ parks too. Jacoby Ellsbury might win the MVP this season after adding power (31
Here are five reasons: 1) They won’t have to face the Rays As well as Tampa played down the stretch, they dug too deep a hole to make the playoffs, even after taking six of seven from Boston in September. The Red Sox won’t have to worry about Desmond Jennings willing himself on base and running until he scores. Evan Longoria won’t bash any go-ahead home runs. Tampa’s solid young starting pitching won’t frustrate Boston’s bats, and their

Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez were legitimate MVP candidates at points this season and David Ortiz was one of the five best hitters in the American League.

The golf regular season is about to come to a close and all three city teams are thinking about October glory. Cheverus won at Deering (9-4), Falmouth (8-5) and South Portland (11-2) last week to improve to 5-1 on the year. The Stags hosted South Portland Monday and Scarborough Tuesday, visit Portland Thursday and close at home versus Falmouth Friday. Deering bounced back from its loss to Cheverus with a confidence-building tiebreaker victory over previously unbeaten Scarborough Wednesday. Friday, the Rams downed visiting Portland, 11-2, to balance their record at 4-4. After going to Falmouth Tuesday, Deering closes at Falmouth Thursday. Portland dropped to 1-6 after losses last week to Scarborough (12.5-0.5), Falmouth (11-2) and Deering (11-2). The Bulldogs were at South Portland Tuesday and close at home versus Cheverus Thursday. The girls’ state qualifying match is Wednesday at Willowdale Golf Course in Scarborough. The boys’ state qualifying matches are Monday of next week.

September 28, 2011
Red Sox from previous page didn’t have nearly as much pitching depth in the rotation or the bullpen to make life without Clay Buchholz comfortable. But Buchholz is back (in some capacity), as are Erik Bedard and Josh Beckett, each of whom missed time with September injuries. Most importantly, the Sox won’t have to use the dregs of the starting pitching ranks. It was John Lackey, Kyle Weiland, and Tim Wakefield who pitched the Sox out of games early all month and overtaxed the bullpen by failing to pitch even five innings in most of their starts. In October, the Sox should get all their starts from co-aces Beckett and Jon Lester, Bedard, and some combination of Buchholz and Alfredo Aceves, each of whom can throw a few effective innings. In the bullpen, we shouldn’t see much action beyond Jonathan Papelbon, Daniel Bard, and lefty Franklin Morales, unless a game is out of reach early. Sure, Lester needs to cut down on the walks and the next three guys in line need to be healthy throughout October, but if they are, there’s no American League rotation better than Boston’s. 4) All the other American League teams
have flaws You saw the Red Sox dominate the Yankees this year, winning 10 of the first 11 matchups and 12 of 18 overall. Beyond CC Sabathia, New York’s October rotation will be unproven rookie Ivan Nova and any of a stable of veterans whose fastballs had a little more life in 2005. The Tigers have the best playoff rotation, led by certain Cy Young winner Justin Verlander, trade deadline steal Doug Fister, and hard-throwing Max Scherzer, but they don’t have much offense aside from Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila. Tigers supporters will tell you that they’ll have several advantageous pitching matchups against Boston, but pitchers don’t face pitchers. Give me Beckett against Detroit’s lineup over Verlander against Boston’s any day. The Rangers may have the best combination of offense and defense, but neither is a sure thing. Alexi Ogando and Derek Holland have far surpassed their career highs for innings pitched and may not have much left in the tank at this point. Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton can rake, but the bottom half of Texas’s lineup isn’t the equal of Boston’s. 5) It’s the American League’s turn Realistically, if the Phillies await the Sox in the Series, Philly’s rotation will make
them heavy favorites. Even the Brewers look like a strong competitor. But look at the last six World Series champs: 2010 Giants (NL) 2009 Yankees (AL) 2008 Phillies (NL) 2007 Red Sox (AL) 2006 Cardinals (NL) 2005 White Sox (AL) We’ve been alternating between leagues since the Red Sox and White Sox broke their respective curses. It’s the AL’s turn. We know the Red Sox will have a far better offense than any NL team they might face. If the breaks fall their way (and after September’s madness, a few of them are due to), the same Red Sox who started September 5-18 could be celebrating their third title in eight years by Halloween.

Candidates from page 5 continue to attend community events and keep talking with residents she meets at the grocery store. She would also make her schedule available online, so people would know where to find her. Duson said she would also call a summit of neighborhood associations to solicit feedback and develop an action plan, to which both she and the groups would be held accountable. City Councilor Nicholas Mavodones Jr., who is the council’s last appointed mayor, said he would make sure each neighborhood is well represented on the city manager’s advisory council and would meet with it regularly. In addition to being available at City Hall, Mavodones said he would like to also hold neighborhood walks, possibly with the Police Department’s senior lead officers, to speak with people who may not be active in their neighborhoods. Christopher Vail (unenrolled) said the city has “dropped the ball” in getting public input, which has lead people to feel “disconnected” and “intimidated by City Hall.” He said the city is only having a one-way conversation too late in the process, when a two-way conversation is needed earlier. In addition to neighborhood organizations, Vail, 40, said he’d meet with representatives of other interests, like the
SunsetSpecials Mon.–Fri. 4–6 PM
homeless, ethnic groups and others, as though they were their own associations. Vail, a native of Peaks Island, said he understands islanders’ concerns about paying high taxes and receiving fewer services. He said the city needs to listen to those concerns, like other neighborhoods, and show that it’s being responsive. “Once people see progress, they tend to get on board,” he said. Richard Dodge, 59, said he would listen to residents’ concerns, but would be careful to separate needs from wants. He thinks the city should concentrate efforts on public safety and helping the elderly, who sometimes must chose between mortgage payments and medication. But Dodge, a Republican, said the city can’t help unless it has revenue from economic development. He lamented that a proposal to build a new civic center near the Back Bay Tower was squashed years ago by neighborhood opposition. Democrat Peter Bryant, 68, said neighborhoods could be strengthened by encouraging residents to organize clean-ups of small brooks and parks. He would also encourage community yard sales to build community. He said the city should do more to inform residents about issues at City Hall by posting notices in corner stores. Hamza Haadoow (unenrolled) said the city does a good job of collecting community feedback, but is not really reaching all stakeholders in the city. Rather than relying on news outlets to relay official information, more direct contact with neighborhood and business leaders is needed, the 37-year-old said. Charles Bragdon, 43-year-old Democrat, said he would call for a “big workshop” with neighborhood associations, including the islands, so they all will have an equal voice. He said he would take core ideas from that meeting and make them a bigger part of economic development and neighborhood stabilization plans.

Out & About
Fall arts season opens with musicals, symphony By Scott Andrews The annual September slowdown in the performing arts is coming to an end as the fall-winter-spring seasons for several of our area’s producers begins. Lyric Music Theater began its 2011-2012 program year only a few hours after the autumnal equinox with “Thoroughly Modern Millie” a delightfully light and frothy Broadway tuner based on the movie of the same name. Nothing says “classical music” better than Beethoven, and that’s how Portland Symphony Orchestra maestro Robert Moody will launch his 2011-2012 season. Ludwig van Beethoven’s celebrated “Emperor” concerto is the featured work, with guest pianist Awadagin Pratt doing the solo honors. You have two opportunities to catch this program: Sunday afternoon and Tuesday evening. But before getting too wrapped up in fall, let’s note that Ogunquit Playhouse, which bills itself as “America’s foremost summer theater,” has extended its season quite a bit in recent years. The final show of 2011 opened last week and runs nearly a month into the fall. It’s a superb, fully professional production one of Broadway’s biggest blockbusters, “Miss Saigon.”
‘Miss Saigon’ A tragic love story set against a sweeping backdrop of history is one of the core concepts of Italian grand opera. It’s also the central idea of “Miss Saigon,” a musical that ran 10 years on Broadway. Created by a pair of French writers and consciously crafted on the model of Giacomo Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly,” “Miss Saigon” is a romantic tragedy that blurs many of the boundaries between Broadway and opera. It is also one of the most successful musicals in history. Since its 1989 London West End premiere, “Miss Saigon” has been performed in 10 different languages in 19 countries and its total box office numbers have exceeded 31 million people and $1.3 billion. The show won 29 major theatre honors including three Tonys, four Drama Desk
Jennifer Paz and Gregg Godbrod star in Ogunquit Playhouse’s production of one of Broadway’s all-time emotional blockbusters, “Miss Saigon.”
Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards and one Theatre World Award. “Miss Saigon” is the third collaboration between two French writers, composer Claude-Michel Schonberg and librettist/ lyricist Alain Boublil. Their prior effort was “Les Miserables,” another mammoth show that had an even longer run than “Miss Saigon.” American lyricist Richard Maltby, Jr. was added to the creative team for “Miss Saigon.” As its final offering of the 2011 season, Ogunquit Playhouse presents and outstanding and profoundly moving, emotionally wrenching production of this masterpiece of musical theater. The story begins in the final chaotic days of the Vietnam War and ends several years later. The principal characters are an innocent young Vietnamese woman and her lover, an American Marine. Jennifer Paz plays the title character, an appealing woman whose dreams of a better life are dashed by the realities of the conflict. Paz does an outstanding job in taking the audi-
ence along on her tragic ride. Also tops are Gregg Godbrod as the American Marine, and Raul Aranas as a crass, cynical Vietnamese nightclub owner whose principal yearning is to escape his native country and live his perverted version of an American Dream, which consists of money, automobiles, cigarettes, food and television. Kudos also go to Nik Walker as a fellow Marine, Austin Ku as an evil Vietcong officer and Amanda Rose as the third point of the romantic triangle that ultimately results in the show’s tragic denouement. Ogunquit Playhouse, a mile south of the village on Route 1, presents “Miss Saigon” through Oct. 23. Call 646-5511.
‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ It’s difficult to imagine a starker contrast between moods and styles than a comparison between “Miss Saigon” and Lyric Music Theater’s season-opener, “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” The latter show is the epitome of light, frothy Broadway entertainment, and Lyric

www.mainemedicalpartners.org A department of Maine Medical Center
is running an excellent community production through Oct. 8. The 2000 Broadway show was a stage adaptation of the very successful 1967 musical film of the same title, which starred Julie Andrews, Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Channing. The book is by Richard Henry Morris, with music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by Dick Scanlan. The setting is New York City during the Roaring Twenties. The plot follows the adventures of Millie, played by Jenny Woodruff, a young lady who arrives from Kansas intent on obtaining a job as the stenographer for a rich, single, handsome businessman – and marrying him. There’s a second ingenue, played by Josephine Cooper, and two leading men, David Aaron Van Duyne and Christopher Ellis. The comic gem of the show is a scheming woman, played by Cynthia O’Neil, while Jennine Cannizzo plays a nightclub singer. I loved this show. The music is tuneful, the lyrics are clever and bright and the book has a delightful and playful satirical bent. The show is really about the women of the 1920s, with excellent performances given by Woodruff and Cooper. Jonathan Miele, a man associated with Maine State Ballet, is director and choreographer. The show’s several big dance numbers are definitely the best I’ve ever seen at Lyric during the 20 years that I have been covering this topflight community institution. Lyric Music Theater, 176 Sawyer St. in South Portland, presents “Thoroughly Modern Millie” through Oct. 8 with 8 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Call 799-1421.
Portland Symphony Orchestra
Two of the best-known pieces of the classical repertoire plus an exemplar of modern minimalism will be featured on the Portland Symphony Orchestra’s first program of the 2011-2012 season. Maestro Robert Moody will conduct, and the concerts (two dates) will also feature pianist Awadagin Pratt as soloist. The PSO’s 83rd season will open with Michael Torke’s “Bright Blue Music.” Torke is a 50-year-old contemporary American composer who is known for twin influences: jazz and minimalism. “Bright Blue Music” promises to be both colorful and vibrant. Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, known as the “Emperor,” will follow. In 1992, soloist Pratt became the first African-American pianist to win the prestigious Naumberg International Piano Competition. A music professor at the University of Cincinnati, Pratt is also known for his unconventional sartorial choices and his dreadlocks, two traits that he believes help break down barriers to classical music for younger audience members. Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 presents the 19th-century German composer at his most passionate and joyful. The composer himself led the orchestra for its 1885 debut. It was well received and has been a staple of the classical orchestral literature ever since. Portland Symphony Orchestra presents its season-opening program twice at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: Oct. 2 at 2:30 p.m. and Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Planning Board from page 1 Canal Plaza office buildings opposed the change, saying the plaza was never developed into a proper open space in the 1970s. “It’s a key open space on Middle Street,” said Sarah Witte, a landscape architect hired by the tenants. “Once you lose an open space you never get it back.” Witte said siting a restaurant in the square would come with a host of practical problems, including planning for delivery areas, emergency access, trash storage and fumes. Rebecca Farnum, of the Thompson & Bowie law firm, said she has a corner office overlooking the plaza. She agreed the square is under-used, but said a restaurant is not the answer. “I would suggest (the lack of use) is a result of the condition of the plaza,” she said. Attorney Herb Henryson said existing tenants should be allowed to opt out of their leases if the restaurant is approved. “I think we’re looking at a bait and switch,” he said. The board ultimately denied the request, saying it is inconsistent with the city’s Comprehensive Plan, which encourages protection of downtown open spaces and enhancing the pedestrian experience. The request will be forwarded to the City Council, which has the final say. The board issued an alternative recommendation for the council to consider that would allow the additional penthouse suits, in exchange for preserving the square. After the meeting, Soley said he was disappointed, but he would consider the alternative proposal.
www.theforecaster.net After events, all exiting vehicles would be forced to turn right onto the Fore River Parkway, where they could access Interstate 295, the Old Port via Commercial Street, and South Portland via the Veterans Memorial Bridge. Drivers who want to go west on Congress Street, however, would have to use the I-295 “clover leaf”: get on the northbound ramp and then immediately exit to reverse their direction. The group also plans on creating a traffic demand management plan that over time, they said, would reduce the number of single-occupant vehicle trips by 20 percent. It would also establish in an on-site traffic coordinator. Traffic engineer Randy Dunton said, under the worst-case scenario, the devel-

opment would generate about 570 morning peak hour trips into the property and 955 trips out in the evening peak. But Planning Board Chairman Joe Lewis said he is “deeply skeptical” about that figure, since it assumes more than three people per vehicle. Board member David Silk said developers need to make sure pedestrians have the most direct route to and from the facility, and that pathways are wide enough to prevent people from spilling over into the streets. “They’re like a herd of cows,” Silk said of people leaving an event. “They take the path of least resistance.”
Thompson said getting the traffic issues right is as important for the developers as it is for the city, since the group will be not just be building the project. “We’re not just developers, we’re operators,” he said. “The fact that we’re going to run this, too, I think matters.” Despite the board’s concerns about traffic and making the site accessible to pedestrians and bicyclists, Lewis said the city still enthusiastically supports the project. “You guys are doing a great job,” he said. “But we will continue to hold your feet to the fire to make sure you do the best possible job.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or email@example.com.

Thompson’s Point Jon Jennings, a partner in the Thompson’s Point development team, said the group is in discussions with a concert promoter interested in building an amphitheater at what will be called The Forefront at Thompson’s Point. Jennings unveiled new plans that would create a retractable wall on the north end of the development’s proposed concert hall. It would open up to create the amphitheater that, combined with indoor seating, could seat 4,800 people. The plan is part of a $100 million development proposal that would also bring a convention center and office buildings to the Fore River property west of Interstate 295. It was the group’s second workshop with the board. And for the second time, they were grilled about traffic concerns and pedestrian accessibility. The development team, consisting of Chris Thompson and Maine Red Claws owners Jennings and Bill Ryan Jr., unveiled new measures to handle event traffic. For events that draw 2,500 people or more, they said, a special traffic management plan would be used. A police officer and several flaggers would direct traffic, and the Thompson’s Point access road would be equipped with a reversible lane to handle traffic before and after events.

Kelp from page 1 “It’s a highly competitive grant,” Dobbins said. Ocean Approved started in 2006 and was initially associated with Bang Island Mussels. The mussel farm has since been sold, and it’s just kelp for Olson and Dobbins now. Their kelp farm was the first in the United States. “Both of us spent time in Asia and realized there was a significant population eating seaweed,” Dobbins said. Olson, who started his career as a restaurateur, said he wanted to grow kelp in Maine for years, but assumed there wasn’t a market. But now, he said, people are looking for sustainable food grown locally, which is exactly what their kelp farm aims to provide. “We call it our ‘virtuous vegetable,’” Olson said. They call it that so often, they trademarked the phrase. Dobbins said the three varieties of kelp they grow are all native to Maine. They grow in the open ocean and filter nitrogen and phosphorus – often considered pollutants – out of the water. The plants feed entirely on nutrients from the ocean and requiring no additional food. Dobbins said the final product has more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and more fiber than brown rice. In addition to its positive health affects, Dobbins said kelp is a perfect aquaculture product for Maine because its prime growing season is the winter – opposite the lobster industry. Dobbins said Ocean Approved has no intention of patenting its kelp-growing technology, which is the first of its kind in the country. “Part of our goal is to create an industry,” he said. “We want this to take off.” They’re hoping lobstermen will grow kelp in their offseason, providing them a way to make money in the winter. Ocean Approved would then become a distributor of kelp products. The company’s products, including pickled kelp,

Tollef Olson, CEO and founder of Ocean Approved, above, offers hummus and pickled kelp snacks, and kelp and white chocolate cookies to a local boater who stopped by to chat last week off the coast of Little Chebeague Island.

frozen kelp noodles and kelp slaw, are now available at Whole Foods Market and several smaller stores and markets in southern Maine. They have recipes and suggestions on their website, oceanapproved.com. Dobbins and Olson said the way kelp is grown, suspended 7 feet below the surface, means the buoys can
be treated in the same way as lobster buoys: boats can travel right over them and not worry about tangling propellers in a field of kelp. In a trip out to the location, the Ocean Approved boat went between buoys many times without catching. Anyone concerned about the location or the project can contact the Department of Marine Resources. The application for both the Cheabeague and Jewel locations are available on the DMR’s website, maine.gov/dmr. Diantha Robinson, the aquaculture hearing officer for the Maine DMR, said she has received a couple letters from the public, but that they were requests for more information about the projects, rather than protests. Dobbins and Olson did a public presentation on Chebeague Island on Sept. 18 in response to the letters. Robinson said the DMR is sending a biologist to the sites to review the projects. The biologist will put together a report, which will be mailed to everyone on the DMR’s notification list. After that, the DMR will rule on whether to grant the experimental lease, which will last for three years and cannot be renewed. Dobbins said the kelp farm they currently maintain near Little Chebeague is in a different ocean current than the Jewel and Chebeague locations. “Hopefully at the end of the project we will have characterized what an optimum site looks like,” he said. “This will help us better pick a 10-year site that will produce optimum yields, lowering the cost and allowing for the smallest possible site.” Dobbins and Olson encouraged anyone with concerns about the buoys or the location of the farm to contact them directly. They’ve taken several people out to the existing farm, and to the new locations, and Dobbins said that has assuaged their concerns about navigation and fishing interference. They can be reached at 409-6485 or pdobbins@ oceanapproved.com. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter: @emilyparkhurst.

Jetport from page 1 dealing with baggage in a different way. Big changes for the state’s biggest airport.
What you should know Currently, the Portland Jetport has 150,000 square feet of space, with six ticket counters downstairs and, upstairs, seven gates and a small security screening area. The $75 million expansion project ($66 million funded from the $4.50 user fee on each ticket and $9 million from the federal government for an advanced baggage system) adds a 137,000-square-foot, three-level section to the airport, nearly doubling the size. When construction is complete in February: • All ticket counters will move to the ground floor of the new section. • All departure gates will remain on the second floor, with three new gates added to the second floor of the new section. (The Jetport can also add a fourth gate immediately and has room to add others later should another airline want to operate out of the airport.) • Security will move to the more spacious third floor of the new section. So, for the typical traveler with checked luggage, the new configuration, when completed in February, will mean checking in at the new ticket counter at 5
ground level, taking a staircase, escalator or elevator to the new third floor for security, then going down to the second-floor gates for departure. There will be other changes too, including: • Separate traffic lanes dividing drivers who are dropping off travelers from those who are parking or picking up new arrivals from the baggage claim area. When construction is complete in February, the right lanes will be reserved for dropping off passengers, while the left lanes will be reserved for picking up arriving travelers or parking. (Between Oct. 2 and February 2012, the right lane will be reserved for dropping off only JetBlue and U.S. Airways passengers; all other traffic will use the left lane. If you’re dropping off grandma for her Delta flight to Florida, don’t worry. The left lane will still allow you to drop her off at the curb.) • In addition to the ground-level entrance into the terminal, passengers will also be able to walk directly into the airport from the third floor of the parking garage. That entrance will be on the same level as gate security, allowing travelers with only carry-on luggage to park their cars, walk into the airport, pick up a boarding pass at a nearby kiosk and go through security screening, all within steps. • An additional security screening lane (from four lanes to five), plus additional equipment and space for screenings.The

airport will now have a dedicated area for screened travelers to put on their shoes, gather belongings and place laptops back in their cases. “What I call the recombobulation area,” said Paul Bradbury, airport director. By the end of October the Jetport will also have for the first time three full-body scanners. The scanners will show shapes, but provide no enhanced image. • Separate flow lanes within the airport for arriving and departing passengers, so arriving passengers don’t get tangled in security checkpoint lines and departing passengers don’t get confused about where they should go. • A new way to deal with checked luggage. Currently, travelers must schlep checked bags from the ticket counter to a security agent after check-in. Once construction is finished, checked luggage will be taken immediately by ticket agents; travelers will no longer be re-

Built in 1968 and renovated twice, the Jetport’s terminal has historically been a standard commercial building mix of carpet, tile and concrete walls. The design for the addition: granite, wood and lots and lots of glass. It’s sleek. It’s modern. It’s memorable. (At least airport leaders hope so.) “We are selling Portland, Maine, as a destination,” Bradbury said. “Some of the architecture we looked at was Commercial Street, downtown Portland. When you go into what are now cafes, but used to be former ship buildings for handling all the materials coming in for the merchant industry, (there are) big robust wood beams. So this (design) tried to speak to it. ... The old terminal was tinted glass, white precast (concrete), it could have been Miami. This really is speaking to Maine.” But the glass – both inside and out – is more than a marketing ploy or pretty

Each section allows passengers to view the next: when you drive up, you can see the ticketing area; when you enter the third level of the addition from the garage, you can see security; when you go through security, you can see the departure gates.
Special features Not excited about the split traffic lanes? Couldn’t care less about the larger security area? All that glass leaves you cold? There are other special features you might be interested in. Mood lighting anyone? On the wall high above the new ticketing area, hundreds of tiny LED lights will
Water from page 4 citing experience with budgets, waste-water systems, pump stations, utility work, wind turbines and bike paths. “I’m not a politician,” he said. “I come at it from a construction perspective. I understand budgets.” Safarik is a 74-year-old Green Inde-

sparkle purple, green and other colors chosen for the season. It’s decoration. Mostly. “I promise you there will not be a lot of reds, because red’s an anxiety mood. There will be a lot of blues and greens,” said Gregory Hughes, airport marketing manager. “I think reds in an airport is a little risky.” If pretty colored lights aren’t your thing, maybe history will be. High above the entrance to security, the Jetport has stationed “Antoinette,” a mock-up of an early 1900s plane courtesy of the Owls Head Transportation Museum. The old wooden plane – whose hull was capable of floating, making it part boat – was the height of technology in its era. “It almost made it across the English channel,” Bradbury said. For those travelers who want something more functional than decorative, you can’t get much more useful than a water bottle filler. Located both in the current and new gate areas, the special
water bottle stations are designed to allow travelers to fill their water bottles without the splash and hassle of filling up at a water fountain. And without the expense of buying $2 bottled water every time Junior gets thirsty. The Jetport will also expand its restaurant offerings, with Great American Bagel coming to the current gate area and a food court coming to the new gate area, complete with Starbucks, Burger King and Linda Bean’s, a restaurant that also offers live lobster packed to go for passengers waiting to board a plane. If your young traveler would rather play with a crustacean than eat one, Linda Bean’s will also feature a touch tank – think petting zoo for sea creatures – though it’s unclear whether the sea life will be fully touchable in the wake of concerns about water on the new airport floor. Shipyard Brewing will stay in the current gate area. All restaurants will open with Phase
1 on Oct. 2. Maine retail stores Cool As A Moose and DownEast will open in a single space in the new gate area in December. For those concerned more about the environment than dinner, the Jetport has created environmentally friendly features, including a massive geothermal heating and cooling system with 120 thermal wells drilled 500 feet deep. The goal: save 50,000 gallons of oil a year. To show its commitment to the environment, the airport is planning to apply for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gold certification. Jetport leaders know of only one other airport that has LEED gold, in San Francisco. Making the project green takes both time and investment. But airport leaders believe it will pay off in lower operating costs and a better environment “If a project like the Jetport doesn’t do it,” Bradbury said, “who will?” Lindsay Tice is a staff writer at the Sun Journal in Lewiston.
pendent who previously ran unsuccessful campaigns for the state Legislature in 2004 and 2006. Safarik, who has studied geology, chemical engineering, history of science and political theory, said he is concerned about the effects of pollutants from residential build-up along the shores of Sebago Lake, the district’s water source. Safarik said he is also concerned about
the commercial extraction of public water resources, citing Poland Springs as an example. “I’m concerned the district isn’t being as much of a watchdog as possible in so far as it can be under the circumstances,” he said. Safarik noted the water district, along with the city of Portland, will soon be undertaking significant measures to separate storm-water systems from sewer lines.
That project is necessary to prevent raw sewage from being discharged into Casco Bay during heavy rains. Safarik said it’s important that water rates remain low, but that is not his priority. “I believe water should be first safe and second cheap,” he said. “We take our water for granted, and I don’t think we should.”
Thursday through Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. In Brunswick, a brother-and-sister team – Kathleen Baskin and George Borne – opened Sista’s BBQ at 156 Pleasant St., the building formerly occupied by The Udder Place. In addition to BBQ, Brunswick residents have a new restaurant option, Asian

It’s open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 10 p.m. An East Harpswell restaurant, Wheelhouse Cafe at 419 Harpswell Island Road, opened Aug. 1. The restaurant is
