Portland’s approach to homelessness: Too little, too late?

Charity adds unique aspect to monthly art walk By William Hall PORTLAND — Art lovers who plan to scour the city’s downtown galleries during this week’s First Friday Art Walk may want to add an out-of-theway stop: a store better known for used clothing than used masterpieces. At its “Art from the Attic” exhibit, Friday from 5-8 p.m., the Catholic Charities Thrift Store will unveil its latest collection of paintings, framed photographs, prints and other

donated household goods at discounted prices. Sale proceeds support Catholic Charities’ human service programs, which help more than 55,000 Maine residents annually. While used furniture, clothing and books make up most of the wares, dozens of second-hand pieces of art fill an expanding “gallery” at the back of the store. “(The gallery) runs the See page 24

By William Hall PORTLAND — Homelessness is on the minds of many people these days. An average of 444 people seek housing each night in the city’s shelters, which have been overfilled for more than a year, according to the most recent data from the Department of Heath and Human Services. City councilors are scheduled to consider a sweeping plan to address the problem at the council’s Nov. 5 meeting. State and local political candidates touted their own ideas at

public forums held over the past month at the Preble Street Soup Kitchen. And the University of Southern Maine will host a panel discussion of homelessness issues at a Friday evening gala for the university’s school of social work. But despite all the talk, potential solutions to the problem remain elusive. One of the roadblocks, most experts agree, is the lack of housing in Portland. Indeed, the recommendations of the city’s See page 23

Ballot boxes fill as early voting wraps up By David Harry PORTLAND — Absentee ballots and early voters are keeping election clerks busy. But as the Nov. 1 deadline for early voting looms, some towns have seen declines in early voting compared to the last general election in 2008. The ballots remain sealed until Election Day, but in towns and cities from Bath to Scarborough, clerks said between 15 and 20 percent of eligible voters are submitting or mailing absentee

ballots this year. In Falmouth, Town Clerk Ellen Planer said 34 percent of the town’s registered voters asked for absentee ballots. The ballots can be filled out at an early polling site or mailed in by Nov. 6. So far, 2,430 of more than 2,900 requested absentee ballots have been returned. In Portland, where clerks will distribute and accept absentee ballots filled out in person until See page 24

Businesses optimistic as Downeaster rolls north


The Downeaster stops briefly in Yarmouth on Monday during a trial run of the Amtrak service to Freeport and Brunswick. Regular service is scheduled to begin on Thursday, Nov. 1.

By Will Graff FREEPORT — Business owners and residents are hoping the extension of Amtrak Downeaster service to Freeport and Brunswick on Thursday will be an economic boon, but no one really knows what to expect. “We haven’t established any metric that can demonstrate success,” Sande Updegraph, Freeport station manager and former executive director of the Freeport Economic Development Corp. said. “All of the businesses are

kind of waiting to see what traffic actually comes.” The Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority estimates that a conservative average of 100 passengers a day will ride north of Portland, or about 30,000 or more a year. “I do think we’ll have heavy ridership in November, December, with the holidays and it being a new service, people will be curious,” Updegraph said. “Once we hit January, it will be the real test.”

The train is scheduled to make two round-trips a day starting Nov. 1, with a third planned after an addition is made to the Brunswick station for train layovers. Although the future impact is unclear, some business owners said they are already seeing new customers. Dan Collins, owner of A B Cab in Freeport, said he’s had reservations booked for more than a week See page 14

Falmouth burglary arrest could lead to more charges FALMOUTH — Police arrested Calvin Wiggins, 46, of Portland, on Middle Road Friday night after he was allegedly found fleeing a home with stolen items. Lt. John Kilbride said police received a call from a neighbor who noticed a car parked near the home and saw a flashlight beam inside the Wiggins building. Sgt. George Savidge and Officers Dan Austin and Steve Townsend arrived at 6:40 p.m. and allegedly saw Wiggins inside. They said he fled through a back door when they ordered him out of the home, and was eventually subdued using a Taser.

October 31, 2012


News briefs Wiggins allegedly had approximately $2,000 in stolen items in his possession when he was arrested, according to police. On Saturday, officers searched the YMCA in Portland, where Wiggins had been living, and allegedly found electronics items and jewelery reported missing after previous burglaries in Falmouth and Windham. According to Kibride, Wiggins was released from prison in August after serving a 15-year sentence for robbery. He was charged with resisting arrest and burglary in connection with the Oct. 26 incident, and was taken to the Cumberland County Jail in Portland, where he remained Monday; bail was set at $100,000. Charges in connection with other burglaries are pending, Kilbride said.

Storm delays hearing on planned hotels

PORTLAND — Hurricane Sandy forced postponement of a public hearing Monday night on two hotels proposed for the peninsula. The Planning Board was scheduled to review site plan applications for a 110-room hotel proposed at 390 Congress St., the former Portland Press Herald building, and for a 123-room hotel at 433 Fore St. The applications will be considered when the board meets Nov. 5. Meanwhile, a 131-room Marriott hotel is being proposed for a vacant lot at 311 Commercial St., it was announced last week. And at the corner of Congress and High streets, work continues on an extensive, $30 million renovation of the 85-year-old Eastland Hotel. The renovation, expected to be complete in early 2014, will add 58 rooms to the hotel. As part of the renovation, construction crews recently moved scaffolding and

equipment into Congress Square Plaza, the small public space adjoining the hotel. Plans call for the hotel to acquire some of that space in order to build a 6,500-squarefoot ballroom.

Southwest begins Portland flights in April

PORTLAND — Six months before its first plane will depart from Portland International Jetport, Southwest Airlines announced its flight schedule last week. Starting April 14, 2013, Southwest will offer three non-stop flights to and from Baltimore-Washington International Airport each weekday. Two non-stop flights will fly to and from BWI each Saturday and Sunday. Those are the same number of daily flights now flown to Baltimore by Southwest subsidiary AirTran Airways, which will end its Portland service April 13, 2013. Baltimore will be the only destination

City schools incorporating ‘character’ education By Amber Cronin PORTLAND — A new style of learning, championed by author Paul Tough, is being applied in Portland's public schools and in the creative writing programs offered at The Telling Room. The Telling Room, in connection with the schools, USM's Teacher Education Department and several other education groups, will host a presentation by Tough on Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at USM's Hannaford Hall. In his book, “How Children Succeed: Grit, curiosity and the hidden power of

Flights from previous page Southwest serves from Portland. Once there, passengers will be able to connect to nearly 60 cities, the airline said, a 30 percent increase over the number now available to Portland-Baltimore passengers on AirTran. Southwest plans to serve Portland with 143-seat Boeing 737 jets, while AirTran uses 117-seat Boeing 717s. Southwest, the nation’s largest domestic airline, is known for its discount fares and “bags fly free” policy. The nearest airport now served by Southwest is in Manchester, N.H. Seven airlines including AirTran now fly through Portland. Last year, the jetport completed a $75 million renovation, including a new, 145,000-square-foot terminal expansion.

character,” Tough argues for a new understanding of the way children learn, saying that characteristics such as perseverance – “grit” as he calls it – and curiosity should be developed alongside an understanding of mathematics and other traditional subjects. During the research for his book, Tough studied the way students from all socioeconomic backgrounds learn; from low income students at Intermediate School 318 in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Riverdale Country School, an exclusive private school in Bronx, N.Y. He found that when character traits are developed both at home and in the classroom, students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds tend to succeed better than if these traits were not cultivated at all. The ideas in Tough's book may seem like a distant problem, but Casco Bay High School, King Middle School and East End Elementary School have either shifted or begun a shift toward character learning.

David Galin, chief academics officer for the Portland Public Schools, said that with the lower socioeconomic status of many students in Portland, Tough's concepts are key in developing tenacious learners who will have success in future education. “Certain schools are really going deep with this,” Galin said. “We have individual schools who have developed plans for student support and student learning that include a lot of work on our students' character.” Casco Bay High School, for example, adopted the idea of character learning before Tough's book came out, but Derek Pierce, school principal, said the school identifies with a lot of what Tough says in his book. “We very much agree with his approach and about the importance of recognizing skills or dispositions that kids have, perseverance and grit, as being crucial to kids'

success and something that can be taught and cultivated,” Pierce said. At Casco Bay High School students are expected to work ethically, be accountable for their actions and persevere through challenges presented to them, he said. Pierce said that all students at Casco Bay High School receive traditional grades, but they also receive a grade for “Habits

There are also two bicycle/pedestrian projects: a Portland Transportation Center neighborhood byway, about $375,000, and a Main Street path extension in South Portland, about $301,000.

The projects were chosen through a year-long technical review process that PACTS staff led in collaboration with the Maine Department of Transportation, as well as consulting engineers and municipal staffs from around the area.

Paving makes up the bulk of the projects, including work in:

Mondays, November 5-26, 6-9 pm

Occupy Maine sets focus on home foreclosures By Marena Blanchard PORTLAND — Members of Occupy Maine are focusing their efforts on housing foreclosures and providing support to Mainers struggling through the process. The newly formed Occupy Our Homes is offering services that include general information, legal assistance, and fundraising.

Some of the core activists involved participated in the occupation of Lincoln Park in Portland. But William Hessian was in Minneapolis, Minn., where one of the first Occupy Our Homes groups was founded. Hessian said one of the group’s goals is to develop “creative solutions for each individual.”

Free dental care available for a day in Cumberland County Comment on this story at:

By Marena Blanchard PORTLAND — Free dental care will be available Friday, Nov. 2, to adults who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it, at various offices throughout Cumberland County, according to the Greater Portland Dental Society.

Recently, Occupy Our Homes held an arts event for Susan Chandel, who is facing foreclosure in Topsham. More than 30 artists participated and formed Maple Edge Arts Collective, which will attempt to raise the funds, with Chandel, to purchase her home and turn it into an artists’ collective.

Over the past few months the group has organized forums in Portland to raise awareness and to share information and resources. The forums are held every second Tuesday of the month at State Street Church UCC, 159 State St., Portland.

Advocacy is another goal. The group is contacting candidates across the state to discuss their positions on LD-145, a bill that the Legislature passed to prevent banks from foreclosing on homes unless the banks could prove ownership.

For more information or to work with the group as a homeowner, contact Hessian at

The bill was vetoed by Gov. Paul LePage in March. Hessian said it will likely be reintroduced and the group hopes to garner enough support to overturn another veto.

The next forum will be held Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Katie Elliott: a ‘driving force’ for good By David Treadwell SCARBOROUGH — Some people are born to serve, and Scarborough High School senior Katie Elliott is one of those people. As a sixth-grader, she donated 10 inches of her hair to Locks of Love, an organization that provides hair pieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from longterm medical hair loss. “I loved the way I felt after having helped someone less fortunate,” Elliott recalled. She has continued to make an impact, assisting in activities at her church, for example, and working in a soup kitchen.

Unsung Heroes One in a series of profiles by Brunswick writer David Treadwell about people who quietly contribute to the quality of life in greater Portland. Do you know an Unsung Hero? Tell us:

“I was inspired to challenge myself, and I decided that I wanted to do something more,” she said. A can-do “A” student, Elliott wasted little time in creating an outlet where she could “do something more:” She launched Driving Force, an organization dedicated to collecting items for nonprofit groups in greater Portland.

Scarborough School Board. “The students ask a lot of questions that the adults might not think to ask,” she noted. In her not-so-spare time, Elliott serves as a tri-captain of the Scarborough High School Mock Trial Team. This experience should prepare her well for her long-term career goal, to be a criminal prosecutor. Dean Auriemma, principal of Scarborough High School, marveled at Elliott’s success. “Katie is a service-above-self kind of person, driven by a light from within. She makes great choices; she’s honest with herself; she’s not afraid to do the right thing; and she doesn’t back down,” Auriemma said. “It’s been a joy to have her in the building.” When asked how she would liked to be remembered at the end of her life, Elliott said,“I’d like to be known as a person who always tried her best to help other people.”

Elliott turned to an energetic pool of contributors: her fellow students. “I wanted to make volunteering part of their lives,” she explained, demonstrating wisdom well beyond her years. Last November, Driving Force made a delivery of wish-list goods to its first recipient, the Ronald McDonald House. “They were surprised because I hadn’t called them first,” she recalled. “That was a learning experience, so now I always contact the organization first.” Elliott selected the Salvation Army as the second monthly Driving Force project. “I set up a table in the cafeteria and we collected 237 books to give to teenagers in southern Maine,” she said. The Preble Street soup kitchen was the third recipient of Driving Force’s largesse. Elliott collected nearly 50 pounds of pasta and sauce from her peers to donate to Preble Street. Other projects followed: The Center for Grieving Children received notebooks, paper towels, and other items. The Animal Refuge League received more than $200 from the proceeds of ribbon sales. The Lighthouse Shelter received toothbrushes. A prom raffle netted more than $150 for the Children’s Miracle Network. In addition to making a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of people, including her fellow students, Elliott’s entrepreneurial efforts began to draw wider recognition. This past June she was named Miss Maine’s Outstanding Teen, and she represented Maine in the Miss America Outstanding Teen Pageant in Orlando in August. She was also one of only 200 students out of 35,000 nominees to receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program. Winners were selected on the basis of initiative, leadership, generosity, and project benefits and outcome. Elliott’s service activities extend beyond the wide reach of Driving Force: she was chosen by her fellow students to serve as one of two student representatives on the

Navigating the land of hope and glory Recently a high school friend emailed several of us from Cranbrook – a.k.a. The School That Dare Not Speak Its Name (thanks, Mitt) – looking for World Series tickets to see my once-beloved Detroit Tigers (curse you, Designated Hitter Rule, for turning the AL into a carnival sideshow). I don’t know how I was The View supposed to help from Maine, but I’m glad he included me in an online conversation that meandered from this year to the great 1968 Detroit-St. Louis series that caused a brief cessation of hostilities in racially charged Detroit, and finally to baseball in general. I owe a lot to baseball for the role it has played in my life of taking the road less Mike Langworthy traveled. Gas was under 20 cents a gallon when I went to my first Tigers game. The visiting shortstop, Luis Aparicio, was shagging flies during fielding practice. He drew a bead on a seemingly impossible get that was headed to our seats, about halfway down the third base line. He sprinted toward the warning track, made the catch on a dead run, went over the low wall and fell in a fan’s lap. He got up with a look on his face like he’d just pulled a baby out of a well. Did I mention this was fielding practice? I never saw anybody so happy doing something he was getting paid for. I was young, but I wasn’t an idiot. I was the schoolyard shortstop who couldn’t see the ball until the last second because he didn’t know he needed glasses. The

majors weren’t in my future. Fortunately, something else came along that I would run into a brick wall for: comedy. I had no idea how apt the brick wall comparison would be, especially when my passion became obscured by a lust for fame, a fool’s game if ever there was one. The sharpest epiphany I ever had about the folly of chasing fame was also baseball-related, sort of. I wish it had happened earlier. It could have saved me a lot of anguish. After flaming out as a stand-up comedian, while struggling to break into TV writing, I went to a print shop to copy an early spec script. The guy ahead of me was copying adult softball league schedules for the Burbank parks department, and he was wearing a World Series ring. They’re huge, by the way. And garish. Pimp garish. They’re also proof that you won the biggest prize in baseball. This guy had one, and now he was an assistant recreation director. Thinking I must have a kindred spirit, I pointed at the ring and said something lame about how the world pulls the rug out from under you. Unlike me, he turned out to be remarkably at peace. To him it was always about doing the thing he loved. He got to play baseball for a living. He made the majors. He got to the Series. His team won. That’s pretty much the dream when you’re 8 years old and playing catch with your dad – or throwing the ball up on the garage roof by yourself while your dad yells from the house to shut up out there, he’s trying to read the paper. Hypothetically. Just to throw another possible childhood scenario out there. Not that it happened. Not that it didn’t. Sure, a Burbank softball field is a long way from The Show, and he wasn’t looking back on Johnny Bench’s career, but this former backup catcher and current assistant recreation director knew what that ring represented, and he knew nobody could take it away from him. A person could be in a lot worse place at the age of 35.

He could be on his knees vomiting into the toilet bowl of a filthy rest room in a crummy suburban bar in Westchester County, for instance. Because Lawrence Taylor – yes, that Lawrence Taylor – out for a beer after Giants’ practice, had just gotten a standing ovation for paying him $100 to get off a makeshift stage with no lights, a battery-operated sound system and no air conditioning in the middle of August. After he had failed to entertain a single person in a room full of 20-something men so drunk that none of them even noticed the even drunker guy in the front row who had decided to go commando that night and was now accidentally exposing himself. Remembering how he had given up a promising law career to become a huge star and instead found himself living off his wife in a vermin-infested fourth-floor walk-up in a bad neighborhood of a dangerous city. Again, hypothetically. If I had met that catcher a little earlier, I might have taken more satisfaction in enduring nightly humiliation on dark smoky stages, learning how to make people laugh, and getting paid for something I would have done for free. Or some satisfaction, even, instead of obsessing about the failure of a stupid world to recognize a comic genius when they saw one. Fortunately, I did meet him in time to change my perspective, so that I could recognize the chance to put words in the mouths of talented actors to perform for millions of people every week on television as the privilege it is.

Give me a sign, sometimes If you’ve ever visited Disney World or some other large amusement park, you are probably familiar with the signs. The ones that blatantly forewarn you of your fate. Of the coming torment. Of the No Sugar hours or minutes you will need to stand in line behind the mass of sometimes cranky adults and fidgety children as you wait your turn to be propelled at the speed of sound down a water-filled chute while strapped into a small rollercoaster car. When you approach the entrance to the ride, and see the sign that reads, “wait time: 57 minutes” you are both dismayed and pleased; Sandi Amorello dismayed that you will be in line for nearly an hour of your short time here on earth, pleased that someone had the decency to warn you, so you could make a wellinformed decision and exercise your power of choice. This doesn’t happen many times in the real world, be-


cause the real world is not an amusement park. Were the real world an amusement park, the cute person we smile at in 1979 who ends up as our spouse in 1988 would wear a sign around their neck, clearly stating, “Wait time: 9 years. Please be patient.” But this is not how real life works. Sure, with things like babies or tomato seedlings, there are generally accepted gestation periods and you have a pretty decent approximation of when you’ll hold your little bundle of joy in your arms, or cut up that juicy specimen of red tomato perfection for your salad. With most things in life, however, no one gives us a “wait time.” And this is both a blessing, and a curse. You get on line at the grocery store with 11 items in your basket and you’re moving right along, and then, boom – the guy in front of you has some exotic vegetable that throws the cashier for a loop, the authorities are called in, the vegetable is scrutinized and finally identified, weighed, and its price calculated – just in time for the debit card machine to go on the fritz. Next thing you know, it’s 20 minutes later and your Boca Burgers have defrosted. You hop onto the highway for what should be a fourhour drive, and then, bam – an hour and 12 minutes into the trip your kids have to pee and then your check engine

“I was asked by a former parishioner if I would perform a marriage ceremony for her and her lesbian partner. In the blink of an eye the words from my heart gave voice with, ‘Yes I would.’ It is with regret that there was a time that would have told them no. A fresh breeze is blowing in the hearts of many clergy today.” - Rev. Robert Beaumont, American Baptist Church, Retired. Brunswick.

light comes on. Or someone decides it’s a good time to repave the road. And suddenly, what was once a four-hour trip is now going to be a five-hour trip. Or a six-hour trip. Or, heaven forbid, a 12-hour trip ultimately involving a motel room. Drew and I once piled ourselves and our first two children, then ages 4 and 15 months, into our rather small car an extended Easter weekend afternoon in New Jersey, fully expecting to arrive home approximately 4 1/2 hours later. Five minutes into our journey, we thought we spotted a snowflake fluttering down toward our windshield. An hour or so later, we had a flat tire. Luckily, we found a repair station, procured a new tire, and got back on the road – just in time for the April Fool’s Day blizzard of 1997. White-knuckled and jacked up on Easter candy, we arrived at our house the next day at dinnertime, following an overnight layover at Drew’s mother’s house. Thank goodness for the Easter Bunny’s generosity, or we would have starved to death. My point being this: had someone told us ahead of time, we never would have gotten into the car.

Livestrong matters, with or without Armstrong Fifteen years ago Livestrong began. Since then, the foundation has raised nearly $500 million to serve people affected by cancer and 2.5 million people have benefited from the foundation’s resources and services. The Livestrong Cancer Navigation Center provides a range of free services for anyone affected by cancer. My involvement with Livestrong began in the spring of 2004 with the purchase of a yellow wristband, just months after my last round of chemotherapy. I believe in the “obligation of the cured,” the idea that those of us fortunate enough to survive our cancer diagnosis should help others do the same. Livestrong has provided many opportunities for my obligation; including attending lobby days in Washington urging our elected officials to invest in cancer research, prevention programs, and making cancer the national priority we deserve. The recent Livestrong Challenge in Austin, Texas, raised $1.7 million and the 4,300 participants made it the largest cycling event in city history. Riding across the rolling hills of Texas I often pulled up alongside other cancer survivors to congratulate them. I heard story after story of how Livestrong helped them with treatment concerns, insurance issues, fertility options or emotional support. Through Livestrong, cancer has become a national and global priority transforming the way people talk and think about this disease. It is no longer the goal of someone diagnosed with cancer to just live. I’ve worn my yellow wristband every minute since that day in 2004 and I don’t intend taking it off anytime soon.

No Sugar Added from previous page hindsight would have been a very good decision. A sign would have been appreciated. But when it comes to things like building a relationship, writing a book, painting a painting, composing a symphony or inventing a new way to get to the moon, if we were given a true idea of how much time it might take us, we might never begin such feats. And where would the world be then? How much wonder would we all be missing? There are some instances where a “wait time” sign would be most welcome – but in most situations, I still believe it’s the “not knowing” that truly allows us to keep forging ahead.

Remember the good old days? Raking the fallen leaves the other day, I started thinking about the good old days when we’d just rake the leaves into the gutter and burn them. The smell of burning leaves was the aroma of autumn, pungent and smoky, a perfectly legal form of local air pollution. If there had been a dry spell, you might have to get a permit, but burning leaves was the norm. Now we haul tarps full of yellow and brown maple leaves and rust-colored The Universal pine needles out into the woods behind the house, using the last few loads to put the backyard garden to bed under a blanket of leaves. When libertarians complain about the erosion of individual liberties, I never know what they are talking about unless it is things like burning leaves, petty freedoms sacriEdgar Allen Beem ficed for the common good. The good old days were rife with indulgences that these days seem unthinkable. Can you imagine, for instance, allowing people to smoke in restaurants and other public places? Teachers used to smoke in school. Doctors smoked in their offices. Heck, Carl Yastrzemski used to smoke in the Red Sox dugout. There was also a time, boys and girls, when it was relatively common for people to throw trash out of their car as they gas-guzzled down the road. Coffee cups, sodas bottles, gum wrappers, cigarette butts, you name it, you’d find it on the side of the road. Now the only people who litter like this are knuckle-draggers who toss McDonald’s bags out on the roadside and the few remaining smokers who still think it’s OK to flick their butts out the window. Oh well, they’ll all be dead soon. In the good old days, we were pretty cavalier about disposing of things in inappropriate ways. The town dump was an open, smoking pit of


smoldering refuse. Factories and farms just pumped effluent and offal into the rivers. Folks fortunate enough to live on the shore flushed their sewage overboard into the ocean figuring the tide would take care of their fecal matters for them. I have a suspicion there are still a few fat cats on islands and in summer colonies who dispose of their doo-doo in this manner. Up until the 1970s, it was considered perfectly OK to flush miles of logs down rivers to the mills. Never mind the damage to the flora and fauna and the danger to every living thing, including the log drivers, expediency trumped everything else in the old days. We also weren’t as hung up on safety as we are today. I don’t think I wore a seat belt until the 1980s. On long trips, my brother and I would ride free and unrestrained in the cargo compartment of the station wagon, and when I was a baby my parents would just lay me up on the rear window shelf and drive around to cool off on hot summer nights. It’s a wonder any of us made it out of the 1950s alive. Back then, hockey players didn’t wear helmets and goalies didn’t wear face masks. Bicycle helmets hadn’t even been invented. Dogs ran wild in the streets and roamed the neighborhood in packs. Parents could whack their kids around all they wanted. Spare the rod, spoil the child. And the dentist might give you a vial of liquid mercury to play with if you were a good little boy or girl. There were also, of course, a few prohibitions back then would be hard for young people to comprehend today. Girls couldn’t wear slacks, let alone jeans, to school. And the rare unmarried couple that lived together was considered to be “shacking up.” Oh yes, and Uncle Sam had the authority to force young men into the military against their will. They’d then be sent off to fight and die in a far away war that accomplished nothing. Some things never change. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Freeport restaurant owner Dominic Petrillo, of Petrillo’s, directly across from the train station platform on Depot Street, said he is “pumped” to have the train stopping in Freeport.

Portland businesses have benefited – at least anecdotally – since the Downeaster began service between Boston and Portland in late 2001, according to Godfrey Wood, chief executive officer of the Portland Regional Chamber. But it’s hard to measure what the real impact has been. “Certainly the ability to come to Portland by another method has helped businesses in greater Portland, but I can’t quantify how much,” Wood said, noting the train brings in customers for Maine’s largest industry: hospitality and service. “I don’t know what the expectations really were, but I think as traffic has grown, it has helped put Portland

on the map.” Wood also said the Downeaster provides another way for people to commute to work in Boston and thinks people north of Portland will welcome the extension. “I’m really excited about the service and hope it will be extending further,” he said. “I think we’ll see the demand for it proven very quickly.” Downeaster ridership has seen tremendous growth since its introduction, increasing by more than 15 percent in 2008 after additional stops were added, to about 530,000 passengers last year, making it the fastest-growing service for Amtrak in the nation, according to the regional rail authority. Ridership appears to be on pace for another record year, according to NNEPRA, but scheduled track maintenance in Massachusetts could depress the numbers. Although many of the passengers who

Cheverus, Portland earn playoff wins (Ed. Note: For the complete Cheverus-Deering game story, with a box score, stats and additional photos, please visit By Michael Hoffer City football teams took centerstage Saturday afternoon in the Western Class A quarterfinals. While Portland was springing a mini-upset (at least by seeds) at Windham, two-time defending state champion Cheverus was dominating Deering from start to finish.

Like a machine One week after blanking the Rams, 21-0, in the regular season finale, setting a new Class A state record for consecutive wins in the process, the top-ranked Stags dodged an early bullet, forcing No. 8 Deering to fumble deep in their territory, then seized control when Donald Goodrich (who fumbled to give the Rams that early chance, before forcing a turnover to atone) raced 88 yards for a touchdown, opening the floodgates. “It was big,” said Goodrich. “To be honest, I was really disappointed with myself. It’s unacceptable. I can’t put the ball on the ground.

I had to get back up for my team and keep playing.” “We made a big play,” Cheverus coach John Wolfgram said. “I thought we played with a lot of will on the goal line. That’s really only the first time we’ve been on the goal line like that all year. We really played well. If they score there, it boosts their confidence and makes it a different game. We turned it around. That was big at that point of the game.” A 1-yard TD run from Cody O’Brien made 14-0 after one period and two more O’Brien scores, another long Goodrich TD run and a scoring run from quarterback Liam Fitzpatrick pushed the advantage to 42-0 at halftime. A TD run from Joe Fitzpatrick (91 yards on 13 carries in the second half alone) early in the third quarter accounted for the final score and even better, injured fullback Brent Green returned to action in the second half, rushing for 25 yards on five carries as the Stags improved to 9-0 with their 33rd straight victory, shut Deering out for the fourth straight meeting, beat the Rams for the third year in a row in the postseason, ended their season at 3-6 and advanced

to the semifinals. “All week in practice we were all business,” Goodrich said. “We just came out to win the game.” “I wasn’t sure what to expect,” said O’Brien. “We always prepare for the most intense situation possible. We expected it would be close. Coach always tells us to keep our heads on our shoulders during sudden changes, do what we’re taught and just play football.” “We were very efficient in the first half,” said Wolfgram. “We executed well. They shut us down pretty well last week, so we made some adjustments and I think we moved the ball very efficiently. We changed some formations and blocking schemes. The changes we made worked well. We played well, particularly defensively. If we’re efficient on offense, we’re solid on defense. They didn’t score on us in two games, which I think shows the character of our defense.” Statistically, not surprisingly, it was all Cheverus, which had a 490-179 advantage in total yardage. Goodrich never touched the ball in the second half, but finished

Waynflete soccer teams reach regional finals (Ed. Note: For the complete Waynflete-NYA boys’ and Waynflete-Lisbon girls’ game stories, with additional photos, please visit By Michael Hoffer The Waynflete boys’ and girls’ soccer teams are the last ones standing from the city of Portland and will take part in the regional finals Wednesday afternoon. While the Flyers were able to stay alive, the Cheverus girls and Deering and Portland boys weren’t as fortunate.

Sadie’s smile says it all. Waynflete senior Sadie Cole beams as she hugs senior teammates Isabel Agnew (right) and Sophie Richard Connolly after the Flyers’ 4-0 win at top-ranked Lisbon in Friday afternoon’s Western Class C Final. Cole scored the first goal as Waynflete advanced to the regional final.

The Waynflete boys were a solid 10-2-2 in the regular season and earned the No. 3 seed in Western Class C. The Flyers reward for that high ranking was having to play rival North Yarmouth Academy, seeded sixth, in the quarterfinals last Wednesday. As it turned out, Waynflete was never even tested and got the jump just over five minutes in as Paul Runyambo threw the ball in from the side into the box, where Mohammed Suja leaped and flicked a header past Panthers goalkeeper Cam Spear and into the net. “Whenever there’s a big throw, Paul tells me to get in there and try to flick it in,” Suja said.

“We’ve practiced finishing all week. That’s all we’ve done. I guess it paid off.” With 30:05 left in the half, Clancy Mitchell scored on a rebound after Spear couldn’t handle Runyambo’s throw and it was 2-0. Goal number three came with 15:51 left in the half when Henry Cleaves’ throw in was tipped by Spear, but the ball sat loose for Elyse Bayizere to ram home. It took only 23 seconds for the Flyers to make it 4-0 as Cleaves followed his own shot, which was saved, and tucked it home. With 6:32 showing, Waynflete went up 5-0, thanks to a tremendous individual effort by Peabo Knoth, one of the state’s elite players. Knoth took a long punt from goalkeeper Zander Majercik, fought his way through three NYA defenders and finished, getting in the scoring column, while registering an assist for his keeper in the process. Knoth set up Kevin Kanakan for a goal and a 6-0 lead with 31:27 remaining in regulation. That play saw Knoth put his dribbling skills on display, draw a pair of defenders, then pass to a wide open Kanakan on the left wing, who shot past Spear.

“Teams focus on Peabo, but we have so many offensive threats,” said Suja. NYA finally got on the board with 18:18 left when senior Jacob Scammon took a pass in the box, momentarily hesitated to settle the ball, then shot past Majercik to make it 6-1. With 3:59 to play, Flyers freshman Abel Alemayo got to a bouncer in the box and headed it into the goal to account for the 7-1 final score. “The kids did a great job of finishing today,” said Waynflete coach Brandon Salway. “That’s been missing. We haven’t been too concerned with the 18 to 18, but we worked on finishing and it paid off today. We weren’t expecting this result with NYA. It always seems like we meet each other eventually.” The Flyers went to No. 2 St. Dom’s for the semifinals Saturday and had a much more difficult time, but managed to advance in the sixth all-time playoff meeting between the schools. Waynflete fell behind just 8:39 into the game, but rallied in the second half. The Flyers got a goal from Suja midway through the continued page 17

Football from page 15 is blocking well. At the beginning of the year, he was behind me in practice and paying attention a lot. Coach told him from day one to be ready to go.” “Cody’s a great kid, a great football player,” said Goodrich. “He comes out and works hard every day, just like everyone else on the team.” “Cody hasn’t gotten enough credit,” Wolfgram added. “He’s a different type of player than Brent, but he plays hard, he’s quick, he’s aggressive. He’s done an excellent job. He was a linebacker before and now he’s playing both sides of the ball.” For Deering, which overcame an 0-4 start

this fall to make the playoffs, Kenny Sweet capped his tremendous season and stellar high school career with a 129 yard rushing effort on 23 attempts.

Seven years later Portland welcomed new coach Jim Hartman this fall and responded well to the new era, going 5-3 in the regular season, but a late loss at South Portland cost the Bulldogs a home game and gave them the No. 5 seed, just behind No. 4 Windham. Saturday, at the Eagles, in the first ever postseason encounter between the schools, Portland dug deep late and earned a 35-21 victory, its first in the postseason since the 2005 quarterfinals. The Bulldogs took an early 7-0 lead on a fourth down touchdown pass from

October 31, 2012

Ryan Ruhlin to Nick Volger, but Damian Shepard’s TD run tied things for Windham. After Portland went back on top, 14-7, on a Ruhlin run, the Eagles made it a 14-14 contest at halftime thanks to a Shepard TD pass to Zach Davis. The game remained 14-14 into the fourth quarter when Justin Zukowski put the Bulldogs ahead to stay with a short scoring run. Volger made it 28-14 with a 15-yard TD scamper and Zukowski clinched it with an interception return for a score. Windham added a late TD, but it was only cosmetic. “The boys played very, very well,” said Hartman. “We kept mistakes to a minimum and made some big plays, especially Volger. The kids were pumped. It’s a big deal.”

Semifinal showdown

The Stags and Bulldogs have met just once before in the postseason, a 21-12 Portland triumph in the 2003 quarterfinals. The Bulldogs will come to Cheverus with nothing to lose. “We’ll just play football,” said Hartman. “We can’t be intimidated. We’ve grown as a team. (The kids are) more familiar with the system and more confident. Physically, we were competitive the last time we played. We just can’t make mistakes.” Regardless, it’s hard to find reason to bet against these record-setting, champion Stags, who will stay grounded and focused. “We just need to prepare well and focus next week in practice,” said O’Brien. “We’re looking forward to the next game,” said Goodrich.

Cheverus pounded Portland in the regular season, to the tune of 42-0 back on Sept. 8.

Maine has voted NO on this many times before. Did you know in 2004 ME passed legislation giving homosexual couples rights concerning:





Protection from abuse and related matters?

P.L. 2003, c. 672 was enacted by the Legislature and signed into law on April 28, 2004; as a result Homosexuals are no longer barred from visiting hospitalized partners in ME, if they are, that hospital will be in danger of losing their funding from the Federal Government.

Why re-define marriage when all these rights are already in place?

Soccer from page 15 second half and the game-winner with 7:49 left from Mitchell. “I saw Peabo go toward the goal,” said Mitchell. “So I wanted to get outside of him. He did a little toe tap right to me. I looked up at the goal and saw the far post was open. I tried my best to put it back there.” St. Dom’s made a desperate attempt to tie it in the final seconds, but defender Max Belleau blocked a shot. Then in the final minute, Majercik made a save. Waynflete outshot the Saints, 15-5, but struggled to put shots away early. “I didn’t think we were going to panic,” said Salway. “I was hoping we were going to wake up. We didn’t have the life we usually do. They came out better than we did and put one in early and that put us on our heels. We were in a funk for awhile and I give credit to them for that.” Waynflete is one win away from having an opportunity to defend its championship. The Flyers go to No. 1 Hall-Dale ((15-0-1) for the regional final Wednesday afternoon. The teams don’t play in the regular season. Last fall, in the lone previous playoff meeting between the schools, Waynflete had to go to penalty kicks to survive the Bulldogs in the semifinals. If the Flyers make it back to the state final, they’ll play either Houlton (13-21) or Orono (9-6-2) Saturday at 10 a.m. at Scarborough High School. Last year, Waynflete beat Houlton, 2-1, in overtime. Waynflete’s girls went 8-2-4 in the regular season and went into the Western C playoffs as the No. 4 seed. The Flyers hosted No. 5 Wiscasset in the quarterfinals and survived, 2-1, behind goals from Esme Benson and Isabel Agnew. Friday, in the semifinals at top-ranked Lisbon, in the first ever postseason meeting between the schools, Waynflete did it again, but not before surviving some harrowing early moments. Just 47 seconds in, Lisbon’s Kayla Angelico split two defenders and raced in alone on Waynflete goalkeeper Juliana Harwood. Harwood came out to cut off the angle and when Angelico shot, Harwood managed to deny it point blank to prevent Waynflete from falling into an early hole. “The big part of goalkeeping and what I’ve been working on the past two years is reacting and not thinking,” Harwood said.

“I just try to stay upright as much as possible, but I knew I had to go down. I knew I had to take up as much space as possible. For me, once I touch the ball the first time, I know I can do it. That touch on the ball was definitely better than other ones.” “Juliana stood on her head, no doubt about it,” said Waynflete coach Todd Dominski. The Greyhounds kept the pressure on and the Flyers dodged several more bullets before finally sustaining possession and turning the momentum. The second half was almost all Waynflete, but it took nearly 20 minutes before the Flyers finally got on the board. The winning goal was set up by Sofia Canning, who fed Walker Foehl on the right wing. Foehl played the ball in, then crossed it to Sadie Cole and all Cole had to do was guide the ball in to the goal, in this case with her stomach, and the Flyers had a 1-0 lead. “Walker crossed it and I just happened to be at the right place at the right time,” said Cole. “We work a lot on crosses and getting to (the ball) before it bounces. Walker’s a huge part of the offense. She has one of the best crosses in the state.” “We knew it would come at some point,” said Foehl. “We had the ball locked in their half. Sofia threaded it through and I crossed it to Sadie and she was attacking the box.


We got really pumped.” After taking nearly 60 minutes to score, the Flyers would tack on three more goals in the next 12 minutes, 30 seconds. Arianna Giguere gave Waynflete some breathing room with 15:12 to play as she took a pass from Foehl and one-timed a blast into the net. With 11:36 remaining, Foehl got in the scoring act herself, booming a 25-yard free kick into the net to make it 3-0. “I work on free kicks a lot,” Foehl said. “It was a perfect distance for me.” Then, with 8:18 to go, Marijke Rowse delivered a strike nearly identical to Foehl’s, this one from slightly closer, and that pushed the lead to 4-0. The Flyers ran out the clock from there and celebrated a great team win. “We really settled down and figured out how to play against this team that we hadn’t played against before,” Harwood said. “We were able to work it up the field.” “I think we were more pumped,” said defender Rhiannan Jackson. “We really wanted to win. Once we got a goal we knew we could do it and we kept doing it.” “We were getting closer and closer and we finally got Sadie to attack that ball in the box and it seemed like things opened up a little bit,” Dominski added. “We loosened up a little bit and put a few more home.”

one point behind runner-up Orono and 25 behind champion Washburn. Martha Veroneau was fifth overall and fourth for scoring purposes, completing the 5-kilometer course in 21 minutes, 3.11 seconds. Also scoring were Ella Millard (10th, 21:40.8), Cat Johnson (19th, 22:43.56), Gail Johnson (21st, 22:51.8) and Ellie Marston (29th, 23:21.25). “We were disappointed,” said Waynflete coach Ziggy Gillespie. “We went up there to get second. We didn’t count on Orono. Martha was eighth with 600 yards to go and wound up fifth. Ella came in this year and did so well, so quickly. We’ll be exciting next year. We have 13 coming back. Six of our top seven.” Waynflete’s boys came in fourth with 131 points (Hall-Dale was the champion with 86). The Flyers were led by Josh Espy, eighth in 17:43.54. Also scoring were Dylan Kingsbury (19th, 18:22.96), Abukar Adan (26th, 18:35.71), Colin Laurence (38th, 19:08.59) and Julian Ireland (40th, 19:09.55). “Hall-Dale was very, very strong,” said Gillespie. “I thought we’d get second, but it’s Orono’s home course. We beat Winthrop at regionals, but lost by a point at states. We’ll lose our shirts with all these seniors.” In Class A, Cheverus’ quest for a fourth straight championship fell short as the Stags finished third with 87 points. Massabesic also had 87 points, but got the nod for runner-up as its sixth-place finisher came in before Cheverus’. Bonny Eagle won the title with 66 points. The Stags featured Shannon Conley as their top finisher. Conley was fourth with a time of 19:10.77. Kiera Murray (sixth, 19:26.51) was also a top 10 finisher.

Cheverus’ title dreams dashed by Scarborough (Ed. Note: For the full version of this story, with additional photos, please visit By Michael Hoffer SCARBOROUGH—The Cheverus field hockey had its way with just about everyone this fall, but there was one team the Stags couldn’t solve and that squad, Scarborough, ended Cheverus’ season last Tuesday evening in the Western Class A Final. The Stags went 13-1 in the regular season, with their lone loss coming at home to the Red Storm, 4-0, Sept. 21, and entered the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in Western A. After holding off No. 7 Gorham in the quarterfinals, 2-1, and blanking third-ranked Marshwood, 1-0, in the semifinals, Cheverus earned a rematch at Scarborough in the regional final. The teams had split two previous playoff meetings, but this time, it was all Red Storm. Just 3 minutes, 5 seconds in, Scarborough got the only goal it would need when Emily Bunting scored unassisted. “We didn’t want them to score first,” lamented Stags coach Amy McMullin. “They fed off the momentum. We hoped to get the first one in.” Considering the Red Storm hadn’t given up a single goal all season, even a 1-0 lead was daunting, but when Scarborough’s Ali Pelczar converted a penalty stroke 10 minutes later, the Stags’ deficit was insurmountable. To its credit, Cheverus didn’t wilt and instead put a lot of pressure on the Scarborough defense, but despite some good looks, couldn’t break through. The second half play was even much

of the way and Cheverus had a good look with 16:30 to play, but Emily Rodrigue shot just wide. Then, with 13:11 left in the game, the

Red Storm’s Abby Walker delivered the coup de grace on a rebound. In the final minute, Cheverus again almost scored, but after Red Storm goalie Shannon

Hicks made a save and fell down, a Scarborough defender cleared the ball. The Red Storm went on to a 3-0 victory, ending the Stags’ season at 15-2. Cheverus was disappointed with the outcome, but proud of all it accomplished this fall, most notably how it never quit. “It shows a lot about our character as a team,” McMullin said. “We’re fighters. We fight until the end no matter what the score and I couldn’t be more proud of these girls. We could be down 100-0 and they believe in themselves. We went far this year because we believed in each other, not necessarily because we were the most skilled team. We outfought Marshwood, we fought today. We fought all season. I’m very proud of 15-2. This is our third piece of hardware. We’re building the program. Each year, it seems like we do as well as we can. I’m very proud to be the Cheverus coach.” The Stags will be hard hit by graduation, losing 11. “I’ll miss the seniors a lot,” said McMullin. “They’ve done a lot for the program, not just on the field, but what they do for the school. Getting the Cheverus community involved. They’ve really built this program. They know me so well and my style and what to do if I freak out. I can’t thank them enough.” Cheverus does have a lot of talent coming back, however, and will look to avenge this loss in 2013. “We’re going to keep working,” McMullin said. “We went farther than we did last year. That’s all you can ask. Each year try to go farther and get better.” Sports editor Michael hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ Follow him on twitter: @foresports.

lot of us played in (last year’s loss). We were not happy with it. It’s nice to get another chance.” “I think that we’re more pumped than we’ve ever been because we’ve lost in the regional final,” Jackson said. “This is our chance to show what we’re made of.” “I think we’ll prepare the way we normally do,” Dominski added. “We’ll go in and do what we need to do. If we compete, we’ll come out with a good result. We’ll take as long a season as we can. They’re a great group of kids.” If Waynflete makes it to the state final, to be contested at Scarborough High School, Saturday at 12:30 p.m., it will meet either Ft. Kent (12-3-1) or Orono (11-3-2). The Flyers have never played Fort Kent. They handled Orono, 4-1, in the 2008 state game.

Wednesday, in the quarterfinals at No. 4 Kennebunk, the Rams had to go to PKs again after Stephen Ochan tied the game, 1-1, late in regulation. Two overtimes settled nothing and it was on to kicks, where only Ochan converted, while Kennebunk made four to advance and ended Deering’s year at 9-4-3. Portland overcame a 2-7-1 start to earn the 10th seed in Western A, then upset No. 7 Windham, the reigning state champion, 2-1, in double overtime, in the preliminary round to earn a quarterfinal round date at No. 2 Scarborough last Wednesday. There, the Bulldogs met their match. Scarborough got the only goal it would need 2 minutes, 34 seconds in, added a second midway through the first half, then iced it with a second half goal to win, 3-0, ending Portland’s year at 7-8-1. “Scarborough, technically and tactically, they know how to play the game so well,” said Portland coach Rocky Frenzilli. “They take advantage of space. They got that second goal and that was it, but my guys never quit. “I’m so proud and so happy of what the guys were able to accomplish. When they look back, they’ll reflect on it. To have (seniors) Chip Weber and Tim Rovnak as bookends and watch the kids grow was a pleasure to behold. They led these kids through. They never quit. They were tenacious and hard working. They were the program this year. I couldn’t be prouder of two kids and what they were able to accomplish. It was a fun ride. They deserved it.” Portland will be a force to be reckoned with in 2013. “We’ll come back bigger and better next year, I hope,” Frenzilli said. “I think we’ll be in a better place to start next year. These kids got some experience. If we could start next week, I’d be ready for it because that’s what kind of group this is.”

In the Western A girls’ tournament, Cheverus was ranked ninth after a 9-5 regular season and after upsetting No. 8 Deering in the preliminary round, the Stags went to top-ranked Windham for the quarterfinals last Tuesday and almost did it again. After a scoreless first half, the Eagles went on top on a penalty kick, but Sadie Lyons pulled Cheverus even and after both Lyons and Abby Maker hit the post with chances to give the Stags the lead, the teams played two 15-minute overtimes without resolution, sending the game to penalty kicks. There, Cheverus had three of its five shots saved and Windham made three to end the Stags’ season with a 2-1 (3-2 PK) decision. Cheverus finished the year 10-6. On the boys’ side, fifth-ranked Deering had survived No. 12 Cheverus in penalty kicks in its preliminary round game.

Out & About

Jazz the focus of ‘American Songbook’ in Portland By Scott Andrews Music from several countries, cultures and time frames is coming up in southern Maine. This Friday, Bates College in Lewiston offers Europa Galante as part of its public concert series. Europa Galante is an ensemble that specializes in the Italian Baroque period of classical music. The biggest show is in the Port City, where the Portland Symphony Orchestra switches to pops mode on Saturday and Sunday for a pair of concerts titled “Swingin’ the American Songbook.” American jazz is the focus, with particular emphasis on the musical stylings of the 1920s through 1940s. Jazz singer Banu Gibson will be the featured performer, while guest conductor Keitaro Harada will wield the baton. On Sunday evening, Portland Ovations presents Haitian singer-songwriter and guitarist BelO, known as his homeland’s socially conscious musical ambassador. One Longfellow Square offers Portlandbased singer-songwriter Eric Bettencourt; his distinctive gravelly voice will fill the intimate music room on Nov. 8. Catch him now, because he’s packing his guitar and motoring west to spend the next six months

writing and playing in Austin, Texas.

Europa Galante Europa Galante is a globetrotting Baroque ensemble that seldom visits Maine. So this Friday’s appearance at Bates College in Lewiston is an opportunity I don’t want to miss. Europa Galante was founded in 1990 following the dream of its musical director, violinist Fabio Biondi, to create an Italian ensemble playing on period instruments and interpreting Baroque and classical repertoire. The ensemble has a varying structure and often performs chamber music such as the string sonatas of Italian composers of the 17th century. This Friday’s program will focus on composers Antonio Vivaldi and C.P.E. Bach. Europa Galante has appeared in many of the world’s most celebrated concert halls such as La Scala in Milan, Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Royal Albert Hall in London, Musikverein in Vienna, Lincoln Center in New York and the Sydney Opera House. The ensemble has toured throughout Australia, Japan, Europe, Canada, Israel, the U.S. and South America. And now they’re schedule for the Olin Arts Center on the Bates College Campus in Lewiston at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 2. Call 786-6135.

Portland Symphony Orchestra Jazz is one of America’s most distinctive contributions to the world’s musical culture, and a singer who has presented our country’s jazz around the world will be featured this weekend when the Portland Symphony Orchestra swings into pops mode with a program titled “Swingin’ the American Songbook.” Banu Gibson will be the featured artist.

maintain exclusive loyalty to songs of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. A powerful force on stage, Gibson’s enthusiasm and showmanship are highlighted by her wide range and her ability to infuse new life into old standards. With an extensive repertoire of songs, Gibson’s performances cover many high points of America’s golden age of popular music. Rather than mimic singers of the past, Gibson mixes fresh renditions of Tin Pan Alley standards and jazz classics by George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Fats Waller, Cole Porter and others. Gibson has performed abroad with New Orleans Hot Jazz in Germany, England, Holland, Norway, Sweden and Australia. Other highlights have been a week of performances in Vienna and a tour of Japan with The World’s Greatest Jazz Band. Gibson has expanded her audiences with pops programs for symphony orchestras, logging more than 60 concerts. She has taken this pops program to St. Louis, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Tucson and

San Diego. Perhaps her highest profile appearances have been with the Boston Pops and a three-night booking at the Hollywood Bowl with John Mauceri and the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra. Gibson exercises creativity within the boundaries of the genre, consistently inventing fresh and imaginative variations giving new life to timeless, unforgettable music. Guest conductor Keitaro Harada, the music director of the Phoenix Youth Symphony Orchestra, is one of the world’s most exciting up-and-coming young maestros. Born in Tokyo and educated largely in this country, the 27-year-old’s formal training includes stints with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony. His practical experience ranges from performer (saxophone) to conductor in a variety of styles, including classical, opera, American musical theater and cabaret. The Portland Symphony Orchestra presents “Swingin’ the American Songbook” twice at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: 7:30 p.m. Nov. 3 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 4. Call PortTix at 842-0800.


A socially conscious folk singer, hailed as Haiti’s musical ambassador to the world, will be appearing this Sunday under the aegis of Portland Ovations. Jean Murat Belony, known professionally as BelO, was born near Haiti’s capital and started singing at a very young age. BelO interprets ballads and other songs channeling his deep and diverse Afro-Caribbean roots with the intriguing beats of reggae and the soul of R&B. Active in many humanitarian efforts to rebuild Haiti, BelO inspires change at home and abroad with his powerful lyrics tackling hard-hitting themes focused around the destiny of Haiti’s children and rebuilding his country after the devastating earthquake of 2010. Catch BelO at 7 p.m. Nov. 4 at the Abromson Center for Community Education, 88 Bedford St. on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

One’s first impression of Eric Bettencourt is the archetype of the purposefully disheveled singer-songwriter who’s perpetually in a creative and dynamic state of disarray. But when Bettencourt straps on his guitar and steps up the microphone to perform, his musical talent overwhelms the appearance – and causes southern Maine audiences to flock to his shows. With a gift for melody and lyricism, keyed to his scratchy, gravelly voice – Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart come to mind here – Bettencourt has become a formidable force on the Port City Music scene, having recorded and released three CDs and currently working on the next one. But the next album may not happen here. Bettencourt is looking for a change in physical climate and heading west to the fertile musical climate of Austin, Texas, where he plans to spend the next six months. On Nov. 8 he’ll make his last pre-departure Portland appearance, promising to introduce a slew of new songs to his admirers and newfound friends. Catch Eric Bettencourt’s “Goodbye For Now” show at 8 p.m. Nov. 8 at One Longfellow Square, corner of State and Congress in Portland. Call 761-1757.

from page 1 Homeless Prevention Task Force, which the council discusses next week, include building three, 35-unit housing facilities. That’s in keeping with the “housingfirst” approach, a school of thought that emphasizes finding a place for homeless individuals to live even before addressing other problems, such as mental illness or substance abuse. “The paradigm of a housing-first system is simply that providing stable and permanent housing is the first priority for people in crisis,” the task force said in its report. But one expert wonders whether the city’s new plan may be a case of doing too little, too late. “(Portland) should have been on this decades ago,” said David Wagner, a USM professor and national expert on homelessness who is keynoting the Friday panel discussion. Creating such large facilities dedicated to housing homeless individuals “is going back to the poor-house concept ... that is based on economies of scale,” Wagner said. “Even New York City moved away from that years ago.” Instead, Wagner said that communities

Brenton Hamilton, a Maine photographer drawing on historical photographic processes and art history, will debut over twenty recent works in “Relevant Histories” at the Addison Woolley Gallery at 132 Washington Ave., Portland on Friday, Nov. 2 from 5-8 p.m. On Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. the public is invited to a free talk by the artist who will speak about his engagement with art history ranging from Greek and Roman times and the European Renaissance to today’s digital age and the various historical photographic processes he uses to create images. The exhibition runs from Nov. 2 through Dec. 1.

such as Portland should look to integrate homeless housing within smaller, existing buildings. Larger, dedicated facilities “segregate the poor,” who are often not welcomed by neighborhood residents, he said. Communities in York County have had more success addressing homelessness because they gradually adopted the housingfirst model in the 1990s, while Portland was focused on providing services, according to Wagner. And housing-first is only part of the solution. “Getting someone housed, that’s the easy part. After you find housing, then the real work begins,” said Tom Ptacek, who was homeless for a year and now is an advocate for Preble Street’s Homeless Voices for Justice. “If someone has addiction issues or other problems, just putting him inside a room isn’t going to work.” Still, Ptacek supports the task force’s plan, especially its recommendation of increasing the use of case managers to work one-on-one with homeless individuals. “If you’re on the precipice (of being homeless), having someone there and figuring out specifically what you need can keep you from falling off that cliff,” he said.

from page 1

8 p.m. on Thursday, City Clerk Katherine Jones said it is unlikely the total of more than 9,800 absentee ballot requests in 2008 would be surpassed this year. Jones said there were more than 9,200 requests processed by Tuesday morning, with more than 6,800 ballots already returned. She estimated about 300 people per day were voting early at City Hall. Even Monday morning, as clouds, rain and wind spreading from the tentacles of Hurricane Sandy reached Scarborough, Town Clerk Yolande Justice said foul weather was not deterring early voters. By Monday morning, Justice said, almost 4,100 absentee ballots were cast in the town of about 14,000 registered voters. Because Town Council chambers are used for polling, councilors canceled their Oct. 17 meeting, and public hearings on proposed zoning changes and Sanitary District rate increases were shifted to local schools. Voter registration can continue through Election Day, but the earlier deadline to request absentee ballots or vote before the scheduled election could mean the 2008 total of 6,200 absentee ballots will not be eclipsed in Scarborough, Justice said. In South Portland, the basement of City Hall has been a popular spot. City Clerk Sue Mooney reported in-person early voting was within about 100 ballots of the 2008 total by the end of last week. Absentee ballots returned by mail were about 100 behind the 1,435 submitted in 2008. In North Yarmouth, Town Clerk Debbie Grover’s statistics showed the number of eligible voters has remained fairly constant, ranging from 3,154 in 2008 to 3,182 in 2006 and 3,192 in 2010, but the 2008 election drew a 78 percent turnout with 800 absentee ballots counted. This year, with 3,037 eligible voters in town, Grover said 507 absentee ballots were requested and 360 returned by early this week. Requests for absentee ballots have also declined in Cumberland, but 1,223 of 1,512 requested absentee ballots have been cast in a town with 6,000 registered voters. The amount is more than the 1,199 requested in 2010, but fewer than the 2,083 requested in 2008. Early and absentee voting in Freeport and Yarmouth is also unlikely to top 2008 totals, but has already surpassed the 2010 numbers. In Freeport, where there are an estimated 6,200 registered voters, about 1,200 absentee ballots have been requested. That tops the 1,070 requested in 2010, but is well behind the nearly

2,000 requested in 2008. In Yarmouth, 853 early and absentee ballots have been returned of more than 1,200 requested. Town Clerk Jennifer Doten estimated there are more than 7,000 registered voters in town. At the beginning of the week, requests for absentee ballots were about 1,000 fewer than 2008, but about 100 more than 2010. Cape Elizabeth voters often arrived in surges to vote early or request absentee ballots, poll worker Margaret Davenport said, but Town Clerk Debra Lane’s statistics make it unlikely the 2008 levels of about 3,700 absentee ballots received from 6,400 registered voters will be topped. So far this year, the town has had 2,100 requests for absentee ballots from the 7,600 registered voters. Along the Mid-Coast, requests for and returns of absentee ballots has lagged in Bath, except from overseas and military voters, according to City Clerk Mary White. In 2012, there were 53 requests by overseas and military voters for ballots, as opposed to 12 such requests in 2010 and 18 in 2008. In total, the absentee ballot requests decreased to 868 so

far (with 691 returned), a reduction from 1,064 in 2010 and 2,130 in 2008. In Brunswick, where officials estimate there are almost 15,300 registered voters, almost 3,800 absentee ballots were requested and almost 2,900 returned as of Monday. Town Clerk Fran Smith said she does not expect to receive as many absentee ballots as in 2008, when she processed more than 4,800. In 2010, more than 3,700 absentee ballots were processed. In Topsham, almost 1,160 absentee ballots were distributed in a town with about 6,800 registered voters. Topsham Town Clerk Ruth Lyons said almost 900 ballot had been returned by Monday. In Harpswell, about 20 percent of registered voters, or 800 of 4,000, have requested absentee ballots this year as of Monday afternoon. Town Clerk Rosalind Knight said 821 absentee ballots were returned in 2010 and more than 1,200 were returned in 2008. There were about 4,300 registered Harpswell voters in 2008 and about 4,100 in 2010. David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or Follow him on Twitter: @ DavidHarry8.

from page 1 gamut, everything from crafty stuff all the way to fine arts,” store manager Cassie Bouton said. “... We have some beautiful pieces, and also quirky, interesting things that you can’t find anywhere else.” The Art from the Attic exhibits began in May, after the store received a donation of 50 original oil paintings from an anonymous Maine artist. Since then, the store has been showcasing its one-of-a-kind finds on First Friday, the popular monthly tours of Portland’s galleries, studios and museums sponsored by Portland’s Downtown District. The store is not an official participant in the art walks, and is “a little off the beaten path,” Bouton admitted. “But First Friday is such a big part of Portland, and we wanted to be part of it.” That’s why the store saves its special finds for the first Friday of each month. “We get a nice, steady supply of (art work), so by the time First Friday rolls around we always have a fresh batch, “ Bouton said. Some items sell for as little as $5. Setting a price can be difficult, retail operations director Sibyl Pitcock said, “especially with original pieces, some of which can be very valuable. But we try to make (the prices) accessible.”

Minimum 4 week Consecutive insertions

On the high end, one of the anonymous donor’s seascapes recently sold for $275. Based on information enclosed with the painting, Bouton estimated that a commercial gallery would have priced it at more than $4,000. The chance to discover such hidden gems is part of the attraction. “Each of these pieces has its own story,” community outreach coordinator Bill Wood said. “People come in, they’re quite savvy ... and they’re just looking to see what we’ve found.” He pointed to one of the more unusual donations, a painted mahogany wall carving of a dog. The piece’s donor said he purchased the carving in Honduras, according to Wood, and that it was worth an estimated $250. The store has priced it at $20. Portland resident Dolly Foster said she visits the thrift shop regularly to find additions for her collection. A former trustee of the Maine College of Art, she also has donated works of art to Catholic Charities. “The store has helped me want to clean up my house a bit,” Foster said. “I say, ‘Do we really need (a piece of art) anymore? No, someone else can use it.’ And bringing it here helps people. So it’s a win-win situation.” William Hall can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or whall@ Follow him on Twitter: @hallwilliam4.

Schools from page 3 of Work,” which is built around concepts like being accountable, persevering and achieving personal bests. The school has both a traditional honor roll and a “Habits of Work” honor roll. Any student can be on the “Habits of Work” honor roll, and it is more difficult to get onto the traditional honor roll, but Pierce said there is definitely a correlation between the two. “We really started a re-emphasis of ‘Habits of Work’ in a bunch of different way last year and we had an increase of about 15 to 20 percent in our academic honor rolls, so we have seen kids achievements improve,” he said. He said that in addition to the increase in the number of students on the honor roll, school culture has been strengthened through the idea of getting smart to do good. “Related to Tough’s research is a

growth mindset that you are born with a fixed intelligence, but you can grow your brain with hard work and perseverance, you can literally get smarter,” he said. “We try to build our school around the idea of getting smart to do good, getting smarter for a larger purpose to do good in the community.” He said that this idea has lead to fewer discipline problems and students treating each other better – supporting each other in projects and in life. Heather Davis, executive director of The Telling Room, a creative writing center for children ages 6 to 18 located on Commercial Street, said that she sees a similar attitude among students who take advantage of the programs offered by the creative writing center. “What we found when we evaluate our programs is that not only did student’s writing improve but their social and emotional well being improved,” she said. “Character is a crucial component for student success academically and emotionally and everything we do is try-

ing to support student success in school and as they grow up.” Davis said that at the beginning and end of a Telling Room program students are asked to do an evaluation that focuses heavily on self-confidence and what they find is that when students end a session at the Telling Room they feel more empowered. “We hear from students over and over that they didn’t know they could do what they have done at the Telling Room,” she said. “They become published writers, do a tour and present their work to people from other backgrounds and get to know their voice. They are treated like really professional authors and it gives them a huge boost that a lot of our studenst haven’t gotten anywhere else.” Tough’s presentation in Portland is sold out, but Davis said Maine Public Broadcasting Network will be there and it will be rebroadcast and available on The Telling Room’s website.

nity and that advertising has extended into the region. “Local businesses have really come together and have some great offerings,” she said, referring to coupons, specials and Bowdoin College’s maps encouraging people to tour campus. “We want them to take advantage of being downtown and certainly put our best face forward.” The town plans to have the church bells ringing to welcome the Downeaster, too, an old custom for trains servicing Brunswick, King said. And although people are hopeful about what the train will bring to the town, King said people know only time will tell. “I think it’s sort of cautious optimism,” she said. “We have no idea how many people we can expect on a regular basis. It’s sort of a ‘wait and see’ with big smiles their faces.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or Follow him on Twitter: @W_C_Graff.
