By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND – Voters on Tuesday approved changing the City Charter to allow popular election of a mayor. The measure passed 12,957 to 11,821, according to unofficial results posted Tuesday night. Two other charter amendments also earned approval. The

School Committee will now be renamed the Board of Public Education, and its members will receive an increase in pay, from $3,000 to about $5,600. The raise brings them in line with the salary paid to city councilors. Voters approved the school changes 18,978 to 5,493.

Technical changes to the charter, needed to bring the city up to date with local and state regulations, were approved 16,656 to 5,737. The elected mayor question was a divisive one. Supporters said an elected mayor would give the city an accountable leader with the ability to develop

and implement a “vision.” Opponents argued an elected mayor would have no more authority than current city councilors, who take turns serving one-year terms as mayor and, essentially, chairman of the council. See page 32

PORTLAND — Legal immigrants will not have the right to vote in local elections, voters decided Tuesday. City ballot Question 4 asked voters if they wanted to allow non-citizens to vote in city and school elections. Unofficial results showed voters defeated the measure, 12,404 to 11,248. The question was a citizeninitiated City Charter amendment. It had been considered by the Portland Charter Commission earlier this year, but that panel ultimately decided against putting the question out to voters. A group of supporters led by the League of Young Voters took up the cause, and collected enough signatures to put the issue onto the Nov. 2 ballot. The city has a large population of legal immigrants, and

Caron squeaks out School Committee re-election By Randy Billings PORTLAND — School Committee at-large member Jaimey Caron narrowly won re-election Tuesday, along with fellow incumbent Kathleen Snyder. In District 3, Laurie Davis received 61 percent of the vote to

beat Frank Gallagher, according to unofficial totals. Snyder, 40, received 13,250 votes. Caron, 45, had 9,538. Former School Department employee Morton Soule, 65, finished third with 9,473. “I would have liked to have

Suslovic, Duson, Anton win City Council races By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — Two years after losing a bid for re-election to an at-large seat, Ed Suslovic was returned to the City Council on Tuesday, this time as the councilor from District 3. Also on Tuesday, At-Large Councilors Jill Duson and John

Anton were re-elected. Suslovic, a former mayor, defeated political newcomer Will Mitchell, 2,965 to 2,196, in unofficial results Tuesday. Suslovic, 50, said Tuesday night that despite dire budget predictions at the state and local levels, he is excited to return to

the council and represent his neighbors. “The voters of District 3 know me. For 18 years I’ve been involved in local issues and the schools,” he said. “I knocked on over 3,000 doors and didn’t have to introduce myself to many people.”

In the at-large race, incumbents Duson and Anton competed for two seats with challenger Charles Bragdon. Duson collected 13,157 votes, or about 38 percent. Anton earned 12,114 and Bragdon 9,440. See page 33

Peaks Island officially has no councilors Comment on this story at:

By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — Three years after its creation, the Peaks Island Council has no councilors. Election results Tuesday night showed no votes for the three write-in seats on the ballot. The advisory board failed to attract any candidates for the three seats up for reelection this year. In addition, three coun-

cilors whose terms were not up submitted their resignation notices in July and PIC Chairman Michael Richards followed suit in August. The resignations were not submitted in time for the seats to be listed on the November ballot. continued page 32

Legislature: Downtown Portland district sends Chipman to Augusta By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — Independent Ben Chipman on Tuesday claimed the House District 119 seat previously held by longtime state Rep. Herb Adams, D-Portland. Voters in the district, which includes the Parkside, Bayside and East Bayside neighborhoods, elected Chipman over Democratic candidate Jill Barkley, 1,114 to 940. Adams could not seek re-election because of term limits. House District 113 also will have a new representative. Retiring Cumberland County Sheriff Mark Dion, a Democrat, defeated Republican Jason Harris, 2,581 to 1,683. District 113 includes the North Deering neighborhood and a portion of west Falmouth. Dion replaces one-term Rep. Joan Cohen, D-Portland, who did not seek re-election. All results were still unofficial Tuesday night. There were no surprises in the rest of Portland’s legislative elections. State Rep. Peter Stuckey, D-Portland, will continue to represent House District 114. Stuckey was elected to a second term Tuesday, beating Republican Peter Calder, 2,551 to 1,263. The district includes East Deering, the east side of Washington Avenue to Falmouth, and the islands. In House District 115, incumbent Rep. Stephen Lovejoy, D-Portland, was

re-elected, topping Green Independent Seth Berner, 1,927 to 1,003. Despite not actively campaigning, Republican Chase Martin received 660 votes. This will be Lovejoy’s second term representing the Back Cove neighborhood. A three-way race in House District 116 produced another Democratic winner. Denise Harlow beat Republican Kenneth Capron and independent Fred Kilfoil for the seat, which was vacated by Harlow’s father, Rep. Charles Harlow. The district includes Riverton, the Riverside and Warren avenues area and Nason’s Corner. Harlow collected 1,586 votes to 742 for Capron and Kilfoil’s 491. Incumbent state Rep. Anne Haskell, D-Portland, was easily re-elected to a third term in District 117. Haskell collected 3,098 votes. The Republican on the ballot, Shawn-Elise Lapomarda, was referred to as a “placeholder” by city Republican leadership and did not campaign. She received 988 votes. District 117 represents Rosemont, Stroudwater, Libbytown and part of Deering. Rep. Jon Hinck, D-Portland, was elected to a third term in District 118. Hinck

Schools explore plan to attract tuition-paying foreign students By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The most diverse school district in the state would become even more so, if Superintendent James C. Morse gets his way. Morse said the district has nearly completed an application to the Department of Homeland Security that would allow tuition-paying foreign students to attend city schools. After Homeland Security establishes the maximum tuition the district can charge for each student, Morse said, applications will be submitted for Portland, Deering and Casco Bay high schools. The program would be different from a foreign exchange program, Morse said, where students are swapped on a quid-proquo basis. Instead, he said foreign students would

be charged a tuition of at least $8,500, the average high school cost per student in the state. But the district could charge $12,000 or more, which could inject some muchneeded revenue into the school budget. “It’s not so much a windfall as it is the opportunity to bring in income that isn’t being generated by taxpayers,” he said. “It’s a bit of an entrepreneurial business model.” Sterns High School in Millinocket is currently recruiting Chinese students for a similar program, according to The New York Times. Based on his experiences in Messalonskee, where he established a similar program, Morse said it will likely take

about six months for Homeland Security to process the application. If approved, foreign students could start coming to the city within a year and a half, he said. Morse said he would initially concentrate recruitment efforts in China, a place he has spent time and where he knows there is “an absolute desire” to send children to American schools. Sending students to schools in the United States gives those students a better shot at being accepted to an American university, Morse said.

Portland schools seek feedback on academic plan By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The School Department is looking for feedback on a draft academic plan. David Galin, who became the department’s chief academic officer in June, released the plan last week. It sets a broad outline for more detailed plans to be released later this month. Comments will be accepted through Nov. 19. “We’re really, truly asking members of the community for feedback,” Galin said.

“This is a time we’re sharing who we are and we want to know from the broad community if we’re on the right track.” The plan establishes four general goals: • To continue to develop the district’s leadership team. • To demonstrate improvement in student learning. • To communicate effectively with the schools, the School Committee and the community. • And to develop partnerships with community organizations.

Morse said Messalonskee only received two Chinese students during the first year of the program.

News briefs Portland gets federal funds for Bayside Trail

PORTLAND — U.S. Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins announced this week the city will receive nearly $190,000 in federal funding for the Bayside Trail. The trail, which is partially complete and connects with the East End Trail near Tukey’s Bridge, received about $800,000 in federal funds in 2009. The latest grant funding comes from the Department of Transportation’s Transportation, Community and System Preservation program and will be used to continue design and construction of the trail. City Hall spokeswoman Nicole Clegg said the money will help fund improvements to the trail at the East End/Bayside trail junction. That work is expected to begin in early spring 2011.

Portland to examine enviro-health concerns PORTLAND — The Public Health Division is looking for residents 18 and older to participate in focus groups on environmental health issues. The groups are funded by a $100,000 Community Action for a Renewed Environment grant the city received last month to develop a list of toxic land, air and water pollutants. The city may then seek an additional grant to help address and abate the top-ranking pollutants. The groups will meet from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Nov. 17 and Dec. 15 at City Hall, according to Shane Gallagher, a community health promotion specialist for the city. Gallagher said the city is looking for eight to 12 people for each session. Residents may participate in one session, but not both, he said. Participants will be paid $25. To register, call 874-8787.

Portland police chief puts Parkside criminals on notice

Kate Bucklin / The Forecaster

City Councilor David Marshall speaks at a press conference Monday on Grant Street, where he joined other elected officials and Police Chief James Craig to promote an ongoing effort to eradicate drug dealing and other illegal activity in Parkside neighborhood.

By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — Police Chief James Craig on Monday brought visibility to an ongoing effort to clean up the Parkside neighborhood – of both trash and crime. Craig, in the 100 block of Grant Street, said that for the past two months police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency have teamed up to crack down on crime. “This is a multi-layered effort to take back the neighborhood,” he said, promising that drug dealers will be found and arrested, and negligent building owners will be sanctioned. Craig was joined Monday by officers assigned to Parkside and by state and local officials representing the neighborhood.

Comment on this story at:

During the past two months, police and MDEA agents have made 18 arrests in the neighborhood, Craig said, ranging from street robberies to prostitution. They have also confiscated two weapons, 42 grams of crack cocaine, 10 grams of cocaine and 30 bags of heroin. The confiscated drugs have a street value of more than $5,600. The effort to clean up the neighborhood also involves removing trash and abandoned furniture from sidewalks and repairing decrepit apartment buildings. “Sometimes when you have broken windows, when you have trash out front, it sends a message that this is an OK

place to (deal drugs),” the chief said. City Councilor Dave Marshall, who represents District 2, said the city’s Public Services Department and the Parkside Neighborhood Association have been working to address the trash issue and other quality-of-life problems. Craig added that landlords are losing tenants because of the criminal activity in the neighborhood. “I’ve worked in these (kinds of) communities before,” he said, “and taken them back.” Portland police and drug agents continue to investigate and perform undercover operations in the Grant Street neighborhood, Craig said.

Hearings slated on $41M Cumberland County budget By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Four public hearings have been scheduled on Cumberland County’s proposed $41 million budget, a nearly $430,000 increase over the current budget. The local assessment of the proposed budget would be more than $22.6 million, since the rest of the budget is funded by state and federal grants and other revenues. Cumberland County Manager Peter

Crichton said the proposed budget represents a 1.76-percent tax increase. Taxpayers would see an average increase of one cent on the mil rate, from 52 to 53 cents. Crichton said the budget includes a 2 percent cost-of-living increase for county employees, since no COLA was given last year and merit pay raises have been suspended for the last two years. The COLA increase, totalling more than $140,000, is intended to keep the county a competitive place to work, Crichton said.

Comment on this story at:

Meanwhile, the budget restores $35,000 in funding for the Spring Harbor jail diversion program, which was eliminated when the state consolidated jail operations in 2009. Crichton said the funding was restored by the county’s Budget Advisory Committee, because it works with inmates who are being released from prison, so they are less likely to return.

The budget also eliminates one position at the Registry of Deeds, while adding a position at the Criminal Investigation Division of the Sheriff’s Department to deal with an increase in rural crime, and a management position at the Regional Communications Center. An additional $25,000 in funding has been allocated to Preble Street Soup Kitchen and the Wayside Soup Kitchen to help them deal with the increase in

AG seeks payment from former state employee for unpaid travel debt By John Christie AUGUSTA — The state is tired of waiting for a former official to voluntarily pay the more than $4,300 he owes for bills on a state credit card. The attorney general’s office is taking Jimmy Cook, who Cook got his state job with the help of Gov. John Baldacci, to small claims court. William Laubenstein, chief of the AG’s government division, said, “Obviously, we’d like to recover the outstanding debt in full.” But if the state wins the case and Cook still does not pay the debt, he said the state could go after Cook’s assets. The case was referred to the AG’ s office by state Controller Terry Brann after letters written to Cook failed to get him to pay the debt. “My recollection,” Brann said, “is that this is the first time we have contacted the AG regarding an outstanding travel card liability.” Cook, a Bangor native, left the state Department of Economic and Community Development in the fall of 2008, where he worked part of the time in the tourism division. He spent $4,900 on authorized travel to places such as New York City, Long Beach, Calif., and Washington, D.C. The state reimbursed Cook for that amount and Cook was supposed to use that money to pay off the charges on his state-issued credit card, which he failed to do. He also owed $802 on a cash travel advance from the state. The Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting reported the problem in April and Cook a few days later repaid the $802. But there have been no further payments since then, according to Brann. Cook was also the subject of a March story by the center that documented how he landed two well-paying jobs under then-DECD Commissioner John Richardson, despite not meeting the formal qualifications for the job. Richardson said Cook was recommended for a job by the governor’s office, which confirmed to the center that Baldacci supported the hiring. Cook also worked for Baldacci’s first inauguration committee and later got his first state job in the governor’s office that coordinated redevelopment of the Brunswick Naval Air Station. Cook’s primary work experience until then was as a UPS truck driver and political organizer for the Teamsters Union. David Farmer, spokesman for Balda-

cci, said, “It’s our understanding that the matter has been referred to the Office of the Attorney General for a small claims action and that it is being handled in a way similar to other collection matters.” Cook did not respond to an e-mailed

Recovery begins with … One of the benefits of growing up in Manhattan was the chance to watch the construction of a skyscraper. Walking around town you would come across a block that had been walled off with plywood. A boy Short could spend hours staring through the windows that the construction crews cut in those walls, watching the men and machinery, and wondering what they were doing. I am reminded of those days by the construction site across the street from my office. One of our conference rooms overlooks the corner of Franklin and Middle, where the old Jordan’s Meats factory used Halsey Frank to stand. The place sat idle for a long time while rumors circulated about what might happen with the property. Finally, work began on what is to be a hotel, restaurant and condominiums. Cranes swung wrecking balls to knock out the brick walls, exposing the steel frame. Excavators equipped with demolition shears, giant pincers and crushers, dismantled the metal framework and


piled it up for placement in dump trucks, to be hauled away. Little Bobcats scurried to and fro, moving the debris. Power shovels, bulldozers and bucket loaders moved big piles around the lot. There was a huge machine that crushed and sorted the rubble into piles of differentsized materials; some were hauled away, others were re-used on site. I remember the day the place caught fire. Thick billows of black, greasy smoke poured from the building. The Fire Department came and went, the fire re-ignited, and the Fire Department came back. Thereafter, workers sprayed water on the ruins until they were totally dismantled. Once the lot was cleared and leveled, they started drilling holes in the ground and injecting a mixture of grout and gravel into them. On my way into work one day, I stopped and asked a guy in a hard hat why. He explained that the columns of grout were intended to stabilize the ground for building. Meanwhile, they dug up the intersection to connect the new building’s utilities to the city’s water, sewer and electric lines. Construction began with digging a trench, building forms and pouring concrete to outline the perimeter. Then they dug holes and trenches inside the perimeter, laid water and drain pipes and holding tanks in them, and covered them back up. They also dug a rectangular

hole, lined it with reinforcing steel, and sprayed gunite to form what I eventually realized would be a swimming pool. As this was happening, steel beams, skeleton I-beam joists, reinforcing grids and corrugated steel sheets were being stacked along one side of the lot. A large red lift crane was assembled. Ironworkers appeared and threw up a steel superstructure of uprights and crossbeams, with a staircase and an elevator shaft. They laid the corrugated steel sheets across the beams, laid reinforcing grid on top of that, and then pumped concrete into the pans that they had created to make floors that finishers smoothed with large motorized power trowels that look like big electric fans. Now they have started framing the walls, windows and doors, and insulating things with greenboard. As I watch, I envy these construction workers. It seems like such satisfying work to make something so tangible and useful. And it gives me hope. In the midst of war and financial crisis and political acrimony, it is good to see that we can be constructive. We just need to set our sights on a few worthy goals, make some plans, and build them.

Zero degrees of separation Most of us are familiar with the concept known as “six degrees of separation.” It’s the idea that all humans are within six No Sugar steps of connectivity. That whole friend-of-a-friendof-a-friend thing. If you live in the great (sparsely populated) state of Maine, you know that it is not six degrees that separates the humans living here, but something more along the lines of one degree. Lately, I suspect there are actually zero degrees that separate any of us residing here. Especially those of us who are in the Sandi Amorello dating pool. Having grown up in the metropolitan New York/tri-state area, attended college in downtown Philadelphia and spent most of my twenties


and thirties in and around Boston, I am not used to living under the microscope that is the great state of Maine. Particularly, Portland and its surrounds. Living, working, socializing and dating here is not unlike navigating your way through the web of a spider. A web that seems to stretch from Canada to the New Hampshire State Liquor Store on Interstate 95. And from the Atlantic Ocean to the outlets in North Conway. It’s treacherous territory, to say the least. In most places I’ve lived, you have a falling out with a business acquaintance, and there is a good chance that you will never see that person again. A deal goes bad, a freelancer does disappointing work, and you can say, “Ciao.” Bye-bye. Have a nice life. Here in Portland, you have a falling out with a business acquaintance, and two weeks later, you find out that they are having lunch with the guy who mows your lawn. A freelancer falls short of your expectations and leaves a bad taste in your mouth? You can be sure that person will be sitting next to you when you are invited to the party for your accountant’s daughter’s high school graduation.

Your neighbor is annoying and you’ve shared your complaints with a friend? That same neighbor is undoubtedly dating that friend’s sister’s auto mechanic, and now they are lying in bed, concocting a plan to bring you down. If you are dating here, the lack of a healthy level of separation becomes even more disturbing. It’s incestuous. For example, I made a new friend last spring. On our second get-together, she read some of my short stories and, within minutes, realized the central character of one particular story was the same man with whom she was currently “hanging out.” Neither of us had slept with the guy, but we had probably both kissed him. And he was no great kisser. It was enough to make us shriek a collective “Eeeeewwwwww!” Now when I make new “Maine” women friends who are single, I suggest up front that we avoid discussing continued next page

No Sugar Added from previous page our dating lives. Because, really, who wants to find out that the man who was fabulous and romantic on that date three days ago is the same guy your friend dumped three months ago, because she thought he was terrible in bed? This is just too much information. I mean, it’s disturbing to know that there is a 78 percent chance that the man you are on a date with has probably slept with the ex-wife of at least one of your old boyfriends. Because, let’s face it, there aren’t that many cute fish in the dating pool. I’ve had a friend fix me up with her ex-husband. Let me just say this to that: No. I’ve kissed a man, and later realized he had once dated the woman I had a business meeting with only days before. Again, let me say this clearly: No, no, no. A native Mainer once told me that he knows people who have moved to the Portland area, only to leave again because they just couldn’t deal with the brutal intimacy. Intimacy being a nice descriptor. At first I laughed, but not so much anymore. I love it here, but really, must my gynecologist be having an affair with the sister of the guy I buy my bagels from? A few more degrees of separation would do us all some good. Except for the local therapists, who would undoubtedly lose a good number of clients.

Let’s hear it for the loud-mouthed jerk Welcome to the annual meeting of the LoudMouthed Jerks Organization. I am Ed Beem, president for life of the Southern Maine Chapter of LoMoJo. At the request of a prospective member, I have been asked to review the qualifications for and benefits of membership. As you know, LMJs have become frequent contributors in recent years to press conferences, political rallies, town meetings, and State of the Union addresses, but we are here today to discuss The Universal the time-honored role of LMJs in our primary arena – the sporting event. If you possess some or all of the following attributes, you may qualify for our elite club of individuals to whom fall the awesome responsibility of controlling a game with the sheer power of their voices. Edgar Allen Beem First, do you possess a bellow, a voice that can be heard above bands, cheerleaders, referees’ whistles and the general cacophony of lesser fans? Do you possess strategic timing? The best time to heckle or complain, of course, is the lull after general complaints have been voiced. When you hear the good sportsmanship announcement before every game, do you think the request to refrain from derogatory remarks towards players, fans and officials does not apply to you? Are you able to see an infraction take place better than the officials on the court or field no matter where you are sitting or standing? Do you often find that the officials are favoring the other team? Though this is rarely actually the case (except in York, where it is pretty much the rule), “Call it both ways, ref!” should be a staple of your verbal arsenal. Are you able to make the fine distinction between good, hard aggressive play (your child and his/her teammates) and dirty players (their opponents)? As a rule of thumb, an offensive foul occurs whenever an opposing player runs into your kid. A defensive foul occurs whenever your kid runs into an oppos-


ing player. Do you think your child’s team depends on you to make sure the game is fair? Do you believe that shouting contests in the stands or on the sidelines are almost as important to the outcome of a game as the game itself? Even knowing that referees will never change the calls you protest, do you reason that berating them will help your team get the next call or a makeup call? Do you believe with all your partisan soul that the folks hooting and hollering for the other side are just making fools of themselves, but that you are expressing righteous indignation? If so, consider the benefits of LoMoJo membership. The most obvious and immediate perk is that you should always have plenty of empty seats around you. Your son or daughter will, as you establish yourself as force to be reckoned with, learn a valuable life lesson in mortification. You will rarely, if ever, have to watch a game with your spouse (if you still have one). Sports fans throughout the league will know you well and see you coming. If your plaints are especially vociferous and persistent, you may earn the public recognition you so richly deserve when a referee actually stops a game to deal with you. (I have received this recognition on more than one occasion, but I am a pro.) And if you prove yourself to be a Jerk Among Jerks, the highest distinction a LMJ can earn, you may succeed in being thrown out of a game, thus demonstrating your utter selflessness through your willingness to sacrifice your dignity for the sake of the team. Personally, I have only earned this distinction once (in defense of a soccer goalie who was repeatedly run into by opposing forwards without a single foul being called), but I am aware of legendary LMJs who have been banned for entire seasons. If you recognize yourself in any of the above, you may already be a Loud-Mouthed Jerk without realizing it. Welcome to the club. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Philip C. Nixon, 84: Supporter of Portland, So. Portland fire depts. PORTLAND — Philip Carroll “Pops” Nixon, 84, died Oct. 30 surrounded by his loving family at the Barron Center. On Sept. 1, 1926, he was born in Portland, a son of Herbert and Margaret Nixon, and attended Portland schools. For many years he worked as a mixer for local breadmakNixon ers, Cushmans, First National and J.J. Nissen Bakery, until he retired in 1988.

After he retired from breadmaking, he bagged groceries at Hannaford Bros. in Millcreek. He was an avid Red Sox fan, and a strong supporter of the Portland and South Portland fire departments. A simple, kindhearted man, he dearly valued his family and friends, and especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. The family would like to thank the staff at the Barron Center for the love and support they gave “Pops,” and the Portland Fire Department members who visited him or treated him during the last

several months. He was predeceased by his wife, Jennie (Esposito) Nixon, two brothers, Alfred and Warren Nixon, and two sisters, Dot Harrington and Peggy Nixon. Survivors are his three sons, Paul Nixon and his three children Telisa Stewart, David Nixon and Ashley Vatsinaris; Philip Nixon and his wife Shari and their two children, Christopher and Vince Nixon; Michael Nixon and his wife Sta-

cey and their children Katarina, Victoria and Anthony Nixon, Cameron, Haley, Maddie and Eben Drolet; and one great grandchild, Bailey Stewart.

Cheverus girls’ run to repeat Boys cross country finishes ninth By Michael Hoffer BELFAST — One year after becoming the first female team in school history to win a state championship, the Cheverus girls’ crosscountry squad has done it again. Saturday afternoon in Belfast, the Stags totaled 45 points to win the title, defeating runner-up Mt. Ararat by 23 points. Individually, Cheverus was paced by junior Emily Durgin, who again was second to Abbey Leonardi of Kennebunk, completing the 5-kilometer course in 18 minutes, 3.64 seconds. Junior Fiona Hendry (third, 18:34.86), freshman Shannon Conley (fourth, 19:08.93), freshman Kiera Murray (14th, 19:54.76) and junior Maddie Woods (22nd, 20:37.39) also scored. Cheverus’ boys weren’t able to repeat, finishing ninth with 230 points. Scarborough (71) came in first. Senior standout Jack Terwilliger, who has endured a difficult, injuryplagued season, had a fourth-place individual showing (16:45.70).

Cheverus passes first playoff test Stags rally past Windham, 34-27 By Michael Hoffer PORTLAND — The Cheverus football team has won games by any means necessary, be it offense, defense or special teams, this fall. Saturday afternoon, the undefeated and top-ranked Stags had to dig deeper than ever in their first playoff test, against defending Class A state champion Windham, ranked eighth. Cheverus found itself down 7-0 a little more than two minutes into the game and trailed 27-14 in the third period, but the Stags were at their best when it mattered most, scoring the game’s final 20 points to advance by virtue of a 34-27 victory.

With time winding down in the third quarter, Cheverus finally took the lead for the first time and for good when senior quarterback Peter Gwilym found classmate Jack Bushey for a 19-yard scoring strike. The Stags surrendered just 65 second half yards and set up a semifinal round date with No. 5 Scarborough. “The kids hung tough,” said Cheverus coach John Wolfgram. “It wasn’t a work of art, but we hung tough and made plays. I have a lot of character kids. They refused to lose. It was just grit.” Closer than expected Cheverus excelled all regular season. Last week, in the finale, the Stags routed visiting Deering,

44-14, to finish 8-0 and earn the top seed in Western A. Windham, meanwhile, struggled in its post-championship season, losing its first two games, three of its first four and four of six before closing with victories over Portland and Westbrook to earn the final seed. A year ago, in a veritable monsoon, Windham edged Cheverus, 7-6, in the regional final in the team’s lone prior playoff meeting. The Stags got a measure of revenge on Sept. 10 with a 28-0 victory at the Eagles. Saturday proved to be a fight to the finish, a game full of twists, turns and high drama.

Deering romps over TA, Bonny Eagle next By Tom Minervino PORTLAND — The location was different. The stakes were higher. The end result did not change. For the second time this season, the Deering Rams steamrolled Thornton Academy, their latest triumph coming at home in a 5618 win in Friday night’s Western Maine Class A quarterfinals, the first ever playoff meeting between the schools. The third-ranked Rams improved to 7-2 and will travel to Standish on Saturday to take on No. 2 Bonny Eagle (8-1), which won 32-0 over No. 7 South Portland. No. 6 Thornton Academy ended the year at 6-3 with two of those losses coming to the Rams. The Golden Trojans suffered their first loss of the season, 35-6, to Deering on Oct. 2 in Saco. Deering broke open a 12-12 tie by scoring 16 points in the final 3:06 of the first half, then responded to Thornton Academy’s touchdown to open the third quarter with 21 points in a span lasting just over four minutes to put the game away. “We’re definitely a big-play team,” said Rams senior John Hardy, who scored on a punt return and long reception and also intercepted a pass. “We rally on big plays. We know if we get something going, we can get it all going. That’s exactly what we did. Momentum definitely fell our way.” Deering fumbled away its first possession, but quickly forced the Golden Trojans to punt after going three-and-out without advancing a single yard. Hardy fielded the high punt and followed his blockers down the right sideline for a 65yard touchdown with 9:24 remaining in the first quarter to put the Rams on top. “Trey Thomes laid a great block on the edge on the gunner,” Hardy said. “I knew that if I could squeeze through that hole, our wall was go-

ing to set up good. That’s exactly what happened. It gave me a lift. It gave everyone else a lift.” “John is a great athlete,” said Deering coach Greg Stilphen. “He’s one of our go-to guys. We find ways to get him the ball. He’s been doing a great job as our punt returner. We had some really big blocks on that. It was a big play executed by everybody. John really finished it, though.” The PAT was blocked and the Rams led 6-0, but not for long. The Golden Trojans took over on their own 23 and marched 77 yards in seven plays to knot the score. On third-and-7 from the Deering 11, senior quarterback Josh Woodward, who had runs of 32 and 24 yards on the drive, rolled right and found senior Dimitri Skinsacos open back across the field. Skinsacos easily scored on the 11-yard reception. He was stopped short on his rush attempt on the two-point conversion however, and it was 6-6 with 6:14 to go in the first. Sophomore Dominic Lauture set Deering up with good field position at the Rams’ 40 following a 27yard return on the ensuing kickoff.

Senior quarterback Jamie Ross, who was again huge for Deering (15 carries for 101 yards and four touchdowns; 7-for-10 passing for 131 yards and a TD), found Hardy for a 28-yard gain on first down, bringing Deering to the Thornton Academy 32. Six plays later, on third-and-1 from the 10, Ross ran in for the score. His kick was blocked and Deering led 12-6 with 2:58 to go in the first.

Early in the second quarter, the Golden Trojans capitalized on a short field after taking over on the Deering 37 following a punt. After two runs and a pass to Skinsacos, Woodward scored on a 14-yard keeper. The conversion pass was picked off by Deering sophomore Kenny Sweet and it was 12-12 with 8:54 left in the first half. Deering was forced to punt again

and forced a fourth-and-13 from the 28, but Eagles’ senior quarterback Cody Laberge, who sparkled all day, dropped back and found senior Nicholas Burton in the end zone for the lead. Sophomore Shawn Francoeur added the point-after and just 2 minutes, 10 seconds in, Windham had a 7-0 lead. The hosts were able to move the ball on

their first drive, advancing from the 28 into Eagles’ territory, but on fourth-and-3 from the 31, Gwilym was sacked by Burton and the ball went back to the visitors on downs. Windham’s next series was short-circuited by an offensive interference penalty and the Stags took over at their 27 midway through the first. Three minutes, 36 seconds later, Cheverus drew even. On third-and-14 from the 23, Gwilym hit junior Louie DiStasio (who has served as the team’s kicker and emerged as a receiving star Saturday) on a 43-yard slant pass (Burton saved the touchdown). After Gwilym gained 14 yards on a run two plays later, Cooke ran for eight yards, then lost one, setting up thirdand-3 from the 10. There, Gwilym floated

a pass just over a defender into the arms of senior Liam Hobbins for a TD. DiStasio added the extra point and with 2:24 left in the quarter, it was a brand-new ballgame, 7-7. Defense then took over as each team had three possessions and had to punt each time. With 3:06 to go before halftime, Windham took advantage of a poor kick and began at the Cheverus 40. Three plays later, the Eagles were back on top as Laberge found senior Drew Gagnon for 27 yards before the quarterback fought his way through traffic for a 14-yard score and a 14-7 lead with 1:56 left in the half. The Stags had a chance to answer, but despite runs of 21- and 11-yards by Gwilym and a 29-yard Gwilym-to-DiStasio pass play, the drive ended when bruising senior fullback Evan Jendrasko was stopped on second-andgoal from the 1, fumbling in the process. Sheppard recovered and Windham took a 14-7 lead to the break. The Stags had a 214-123 edge in offense in the first 24 minutes, but were hindered by turnovers. No one had any idea just how wild the third quarter would be as six touchdowns would be scored. After Windham went three-and-out and punted, Cheverus took over the Eagles’ 24 after a 14-yard punt. On the first play, Gwilym hit Jendrasko with a short pass and the senior broke a tackle en route to paydirt. DiStasio kicked the extra point and the game was deadlocked, 14-14. For all of 14 seconds. Sheppard corralled the ensuing kickoff at his 7 and raced 93-yards for a touchdown and just like that, Windham was back ahead, 21-14.

Cheverus from page 14 If that wasn’t enough, the Stags found themselves pinned at their 7 to start their next drive. A play after Gwilym was thrown for a six-yard loss (barely avoiding a two-point safety), Jendrasko fumbled and senior Dylan Taylor recovered for the Eagles at Cheverus’ 4. Two plays later, Laberge scored on a 2-yard run and despite a missed extra point, Windham held a shocking 27-14 advantage with 8:20 still to play in the quarter. That would be plenty of time for the Stags to rally and by period’s end, they’d be on top for good. The Eagles tried to catch Cheverus offguard by attempting an on-sides kick. While the Stags were taken by surprise, the ball went out of bounds and the hosts took over at the Windham 49. Gwilym immediately hit DiStasio for 20 yards, but after driving to the 12, the Stags appeared doomed after a false start penalty and a pass play to Bushey that went backwards four yards. Then, on fourthand-19 from the 21, Gwilym found DiStasio on a fade pattern in the end zone and DiStasio managed to make the difficult catch. He missed the ensuing extra point, but suddenly Cheverus was right back in it, down 27-20. The Stags stepped up on defense, forcing a three-and-out and after taking over at the Eagles’ 38, the offense drove for the tie. An 11yard Cooke run and a 13-yard scamper from Jendrasko got the ball close. Two plays later, Jendrasko scored from a yard out and with 2:14 to play in the third, DiStasio added the extra

point and the game was deadlocked, 27-27. Laberge gave the hosts a gift on the third play of the next series when he threw a pass that Gwilym intercepted and returned to the Windham 16. Two plays later, Cheverus had the lead when Gwilym found Bushey wide open in the middle for a 19-yard score. DiStasio’s extra point gave the Stags a 34-27 lead with just 4 seconds to go in the wild and crazy third. “We didn’t make plays today or execute as we have in the past, but we don’t panic,” Wolfgram said. “Our kids are mature. We’ve played nine games. We’ve hardened as a team.” A whole quarter remained for the Eagles to rally, but it wasn’t to be. First, Laberge was intercepted by Gwilym again, with 8:53 to play. Cheverus embarked on a 10-play drive that ate up 5:34 before ending with a punt as Gwilym pinned Windham at its 3 after a 37-yard gem. Laberge threw incomplete three straight times, forcing a punt, but sophomore Colby Waterhouse shocked the hosts by throwing a 17-yard pass to Burton on a fake, allowing the Eagles to keep possession. They’d gain two more first downs before the Stags stiffened again, forcing Laberge to throw incomplete on fourth-and-9. Cheverus took over at the Windham 43 with just 40.5 seconds to play, seemingly primed to end it, but Gwilym fumbled and the Eagles had one final opportunity. The Stags, after rallying back and coming so far, weren’t about to allow Windham another yard as Laberge threw incomplete on four straight downs. After a change of posses-

sion, with 20.1 seconds showing, Gwilym this time took a knee and Cheverus was finally able to celebrate its 34-27 victory. “Even if we don’t come out with our best game, it’s the playoffs, so you have to give everything you’ve got,” Gwilym said. “I think we did that. We’ve played these guys so many times the past two years that there’s no surprises. I thought they executed their game plan really well, but we were able to overcome it. I thought there was a little sense of panic, but we knew we could come back. We just had to play with grit. We knew we’d get their ‘A’ game. We found a way. “Give Windham credit,” added Wolfgram.



“They’re a tad young, but they have very good people. They have speed and talent. Once we settled in, we played well. I was just very impressed with the grit our team showed today. The defense stepped up when they had to. Giving up the kickoff return really hurt us. We turned the ball over, but we survived. In the final analysis, we hung tough and made plays.” Gwilym wound up 11-of-18 for 176 yards with four TDs. He also ran for 68 yards on 15 carries. “Peter made plays when he had to,” said Wolfgram.

Deering from page 13 on its next possession, but Ross booted a doozy. The 42-yard punt rolled out of bounds at the Thornton Academy 1. While the Golden Trojans were able to pick up a first down out to the 12, Woodward fumbled and Rams junior Jake Totman recovered, setting up firstand-goal at the 9. The Rams were stuffed on three rushes and had to settle for a Ross 22-yard field goal, making it 15-12 with 3:06 left in the second quarter. They forced a quick punt and took over at their own 38. A 16-yard run by Thomes set up a pretty Ross-to-Hardy pass for a 46-yard touchdown. Ross hit a streaking Hardy down the left sideline. With a step on the defender, Hardy initially bobbled the ball, but it bounced off his knee right back into his hands, allowing him to continue on to the end zone without breaking stride. “Jamie threw a perfect ball, right in stride,” Hardy said. “I took my eye off it for a second. Luckily, I held onto it.” Said Ross: “He came over and told me, ‘I would have quit if I dropped that. That’s the best ball you’ve thrown me all year.’ Number 81 (Thornton Academy senior defensive end Chris Dolewa) is a big boy and he was right in my face, so I didn’t see him bobble it, but I heard the oohs and the ahs, and thought if he dropped that, he’s going to get it.”

Deering led 21-12 with 1:35 left before the break as Thornton Academy again blocked the PAT. The Golden Trojans fumbled again with under a minute to go in the half, giving Deering the ball on the Thornton Academy 23. On third-and-3 from the 16, Ross connected with junior Renaldo Lowry, who made a nice leaping catch in traffic over the middle, coming down just short of the goal line. Ross took it in on a 1-yard sneak on the next play, then added the PAT to give his team a 28-12 lead at halftime. There was a scary moment in the final seconds of the half as Thornton Academy senior receiver James Ek remained motionless on the turf after a clean hit by Lowry to break up a pass. Play stopped for 20 minutes as an ambulance was summoned. Ek was put in a neck brace and loaded into the ambulance on a stretcher. He was able to move his fingers. When play resumed, Thornton Academy took a knee to end the half. By the time the third quarter started, any momentum the Rams had had vanished. Thornton took the opening kickoff and went 75 yards on eight plays, the final one a 2-yard TD run by freshman Andrew Libby. Woodward recovered his own fumble on the opening play. A 21-yard run by senior Corbett Smith on a third-and-12 kept the drive alive, and a 38-yard pass from Woodward to Smith set up first-and-goal at the Deering 2.


“We told our players that we had to come out and win the third quarter,” Stilphen said. “We lost our focus. To their credit, their coach rallied them during the half. They came out and dropped the ball on the carpet, but recovered. We had them in a couple third-andlongs, but they executed. Then they hit us with the big one over the top. We were not as sharp as we had to be in those situations. We need to play disciplined, smart football.” Thornton Academy’s conversion attempt failed, and it remained a two-possession game at 28-18 with 8:28 to go in the third. Deering went three-and-out, but the Golden Trojans could not take advantage, failing to convert a fake punt and handing Deering the ball back on the Thornton Academy 21. Two plays later, junior Nick DiBiase ran in from 9 yards out for the score. Ross tacked on the kick to make it 35-18 with 4:30 left in the third. From there, the rout was on. Less than two minutes later, Hardy intercepted a Woodward pass, giving Deering the ball at the Thornton Academy 35. Ross broke outside and found paydirt on the next play, running for a 35-yard score, then added the kick to make it 42-18 with 2:27 left in the quarter. Thornton Academy lost another fumble on its own 20 on the first play of its next possession. The Rams kept it on the ground with Ross capping the five-play, 20-yard drive with a 1-yard sneak. With his kick, it was 49-18 with 22 seconds left in the third. Lauture scored the final Deering touchdown on a 2-yard run with 7:51 left in the game. Woodward led Thornton Academy with 118 rushing yards on 10 carries, but only gained seven yards in the second half. He was 4-for13 passing for 70 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

outgained on offense 372-357, but won the turnover battle 5-1. The Rams, playoff spectators a year ago with a 2-6 record, recovered well from a disappointing 44-14 loss at Cheverus last week in the regular-season finale. “We had to get the bad taste out of our mouth from the loss and come out here and prove to everyone again that we are a good football team and we can go far,” Hardy said. The Rams will have a chance to avenge a Week 3 loss to Bonny Eagle in the upcoming semifinals. The Scots defeated Deering 34-12 when the teams met in Portland on Sept. 16. It will be the teams’ fifth playoff meeting since 2004 (Bonny Eagle holds a 3-1 edge after a 26-14 victory at the Rams in the most recent encounter, the 2008 semifinals).

Jendrasko managed 110 yards and a score on 20 rushes. He also caught one pass for a 24-yard TD. Cooke gained 37 yards on 12 carries. DiStasio was the top receiver, grabbing four balls for 113 yards and a score. Bushey (3 for 20 with a TD), Hobbins (2-131) and sophomore Liam Fitzpatrick (1-6) also got into the receiving act. Cheverus finished with 377 yards of offense. It turned the ball over four times and was penalized four times for 39 yards. For Windham, Laberge bowed out with 64 rushing yards (and two TDs) on 23 carries. He was 13-of-29 through the air for 104 yards and a score, but was intercepted twice. Sheppard had seven catches for 26 yards, The Eagles finished with 188 yards of offense, but were hindered by six untimely penalties, which cost them 75 yards.

Semifinal Saturday

Cheverus (9-0) will host an 8-1 Scarborough team next Saturday at 12:30 p.m., which has become the feel-good story of Western A in coach Lance Johnson’s initial season. The Red Storm won their first playoff game in eight years of Class A play Saturday (48-14 at No. 4 Biddeford). They can move the ball through the air or on the ground and have an opportunistic defense. Cheverus and Scarborough didn’t face off in the regular season and have no playoff history. The last time the teams played was on Sept. 24, 2004 (a 34-13 Red Storm win). The Stags took the other encounter, 28-0, the year before. Cheverus certainly won’t take upstart Scarborough for granted as it looks to advance to the regional final for the second year in a row. “We don’t know Scarborough at all,” Gwilym said. “We’ll watch film and be ready for them. It’s just going to get tougher and tougher. I feel like we have something special going.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@

Midnight strikes for Cinderella Cheverus

Cheverus, Waynflete girls soccer teams ousted in semifinals of state playoffs

Stags denied by Skowhegan in state field hockey final

By Michael Hoffer Cheverus and Waynflete, the city of Portland’s two remaining girls’ soccer teams, each made it to their respective semifinals, but no further. The Stags were ousted in the Western A semis for the fourth time since 2004. Ranked fifth, Cheverus won at No. 4 Sanford, 1-0, in the quarterfinals, but couldn’t hold a 1-0 lead at top-ranked Scarborough Saturday in the semifinals and fell, 2-1. Against the Redskins, sophomore Victoria Nappi scored early and the Stags made it stand up. In the semifinals, Cheverus produced the first goal allowed by the Red

By Michael Hoffer The magical ride of the Cheverus field hockey team finally came to an end Saturday afternoon. The Stags, who came from nowhere to win an unexpected and delicious first-ever Western Class A crown, ran into the same roadblock that so many teams from the region have encountered over the past decade and lost, 3-0, to Skowhegan in the state championship game at the University of Maine in Orono. Cheverus, which went 10-4 in the regular season, good for the fourth seed, edged No. 5 Kennebunk, 3-2, in the quarterfinals, shocked top-ranked and defending state champion Scarborough in the semis, 2-1, then blew past No. 7 Bonny Eagle, 5-2, in the regional final, behind four goals from senior standout Emily Sawchuck. The Stags had an uphill battle against the Indians Saturday and weren’t able to spring another monumental upset. Early on, Cheverus got a pair of penalty corners and set up Sawchuck, but both of her shots were turned aside. Skowhegan scored twice in the first half, once on a penalty stroke and another on a penalty corner to seize control. The Indians scored again in the second half and went on to a 3-0 victory, ending the finest season in Stags’ history at 13-5. “Skowhegan is just so skilled,” said Cheverus coach Amy McMullin. “We tried to keep the ball away from their best players, but the others are so strong. We had no threats at all. “Chuck and (junior) Sarah (LaQuerre) couldn’t get anything going. I hoped we’d play a little better. We played hard, but didn’t make passes.” Skowhegan not only won its ninth title in 10 seasons, but has now captured Class A 12 times in 16 state final appearances. As for the Stags, they couldn’t have enjoyed their season more. “It was a great, fun season,” McMullin said. “I’m really proud of the girls. We exceeded all expectations. We completely jelled in the playoffs and played well.” Cheverus graduates seven seniors (four starters), including Sawchuck, Anna McDonough, Lexi Hilton and Taylor Witham, but this program has established itself as top tier and should be one to be reckoned with again in 2011. “We’re fairly young so we hope to do it again next year,” McMullin said. “We had a very talented JV team. I hope the younger kids do what the sophomores did this year.”

Storm in 16 games this fall when junior Allison Thomas converted a first half penalty kick. The Stags couldn’t hold on, however, as Scarborough scored twice in the second half and ended their season at 11-4-1 with a 2-1 decision. In Western C, Waynflete finished 7-6-1 and earned the No. 6 seed. The Flyers upset No. 3 Georges Valley, 1-0, in overtime (freshman Ella Millard had the winner), in the quarterfinals, avenging last year’s playoff loss, but was ousted, 2-0, at second-ranked Sacopee in the semifinals Friday to wind up 7-7-1. “Sacopee got us early with a PK,” said

Waynflete coach Todd Dominski. “We had a good opportunity late in the first half, but couldn’t put it in. They got us on a counter at the end to put us away. “It was a tough transition for us this year after losing two-thirds of our goal scoring (Sasha Timpson and Morgan Woodhouse) to spreading goals around to younger players. In all, it was a good season. The younger kids got a taste of what it’s like. We return 14 and they’ll know how we play. We’ll have another new goalie, but we have kids who are ready to step in and hopefully shine.”

Portland, Waynflete boys’ soccer reach regional final

Portland junior Alan Tuyishme is mobbed by his teammates after scoring one of the Bulldogs’ six goals in the quarterfinals. Portland then rallied past Cape Elizabeth in overtime in the semis to reach the regional final for the first time since 1995.

By Michael Hoffer (Ed. Note: For the complete Portland-Cape Elizabeth game story, please visit The city of Portland will be the showcase for some of the best boys’ soccer in the state Wednesday. That’s because two local teams, Portland and Waynflete, advanced to their respective regional finals. The Bulldogs, the No. 2 seed in Western A, extended their win streak to 13 with playoff wins over No. 7 Cheverus, 6-0, and No. 3 Cape Elizabeth, 2-1, in overtime, to set up a showdown with fourth-ranked Gorham. The Flyers, ranked third in Western C, downed No. 6 Mt. Abram, 4-0, then edged No. 2 St. Dom’s, 1-0, to earn a home date against rival No. 8 seed North Yarmouth Academy. Portland pride Portland started 1-1-1 this fall, then caught fire, winning its last 11 to finish 12-1-1, second behind Scarborough in Western A. Wednesday, in the quarterfinals, the Bull-

dogs scored early and often, getting two goals from junior Alan Tuyishime and a goal and two assists from senior standout Fazal Nabi, and rolled, 6-0, over visiting No. 7 Cheverus, which wound up 7-7-1 after its second playoff loss to Portland in as many years. “We lost before we got on the bus,” said Stags coach Bill LeBlanc, who explained his team was shorthanded due to disciplinary issues. Cheverus, which was 7-2-1 at one point this season, will look for better results in 2011. Saturday, in the semis, the Bulldogs had to contend with a traditional powerhouse in Cape Elizabeth, which had won four of the previous six playoff meetings between the schools. (Portland did capture the most recent, 3-0, in the 2003 quarterfinals). The teams don’t meet in the regular season. Saturday night, amid chilly but dry conditions, the Bulldogs somehow found a way to triumph again. Portland gave up a first half goal and appeared doomed when Nabi was robbed a penalty kick with just over 20 minutes to go by Capers’ senior goalkeeper Cam Brown, but Nabi found some rare space with 13:46 to go, turned and fired a left-footed blast that Brown couldn’t handle to tie the score. “We kept working hard,” said Nabi. “We knew we had the game. We gave it everything we had. The ball came to me and I had space, so I turned and launched it with the left foot and hoped it went in.” The game would go to overtime where the Bulldogs ended it 11 minutes, 11 seconds in. The game winning sequence began innocuously when Nabi prepared a free kick from about 40-yards out. With the Cape Elizabeth defense primed for him to send a blistering shot on goal, Nabi instead flicked the ball to junior Brett O’Kelly on the right wing and O’Kelly ran up the sideline before crossing it into the box where Tim Rovnak awaited. The sophomore did the rest, heading the ball toward the far post. Brown had no chance, but it was unclear whether the shot would hit the post and bounce back on to the field or ricochet in. It was the latter and pandemonium broke out as the Bulldogs celebrated their palpitating 2-1 win. “Fazal passed it to Brett off the dead ball and Brett just found me at the right place,” said Rovnak. “I headed it because of instinct. I watched it the rest of the way. When it went in, it was a great feeling. It was nice that we pulled it out at the end and got the win. It’s fun to be a part of this team. We have great chemistry and love each other to death. It’s a great feeling to know people care about you.” “We had momentum, but give Cape credit,” said Nabi. “They had the early goal, but at the end, we gave it everything we had and we got the result. It’s exciting.” “Our pregame speech was think about the people who have given everything they have to get you guys to a point where you can make a difference,” longtime Portland coach Rocky Frenzilli added. “I knew Cape would be tough. They’re physically very powerful. They’re well skilled tactically. It was a great game all the way. “(Assistant coach) Bobby Brittingham sent Brett up on that cross. I thought he wanted to send him up for a header. Instead, Fazal gave him the ball and he crossed it. It was a great game.” The Bulldogs advanced to meet Gorham in the regional final, Wednesday at 6 p.m., at Fitzpatrick Stadium. The Rams downed No. 5 South Portland (2-1) and No. 8 Kennebunk (3-1) to advance. Portland has never won a state champion-

from page 13 Other Stags’ scorers included junior Lukas Temple (37th, 18:02.75), sophomore Chandler Dundas (54th, 18:25.88), junior David Woodbury (56th, 18:33.92) and sophomore Brady Foshay (79th, 19:14.76). Portland freshman Ben Allen ran as an individual and had the 53rd-fastest Class A time (18:18.29). In Class C, Waynflete’s girls hoped to make it four in a row, but the Flyers came in second to Merriconeag (46-52). Waynflete sophomore Martha Veroneau, who won the individual title a year ago, was credited first for scoring purposes this time around, but was second to Washburn’s Carsyn Koch in 20:48.93. The Flyers also got points from junior Emily Trafton (fourth, 21:29.56), junior Chloe Rowse (12th, 22:18.37), senior Hannah Rindlaub (13th, 22:24.71) and sophomore Phoebe Suva (22nd, 23:25.89). “The girls had their best race of the season,” said Waynflete coach Ziggy Gillespie. “Martha was first. Emily had a great race.

Chloe and Hannah were just seconds apart. We were in great position until the fifth-place runner. Merriconeag’s runner moved up almost two minutes. I’m not disappointed. We got beaten by a better team. “We have eight of 10 kids coming back and only lose Hannah out of our scorers. The kids are already talking about next year. That’s a positive.” Waynflete’s boys (105 points) placed third behind North Yarmouth Academy (60) and Freeport (99). Junior standout Abshir Horor, battling injury, capped his superb campaign with a seventhplace finish (17:20.38). Sophomore Abukar Adan (12th, 17:40.47), sophomore Josh Espy (14th, 17:42.71), sophomore Jack Cutler (35th, 18:41.37) and Dylan Kingsbury (37th,


18:43.75) rounded out the Flyers’ effort. “The boys were unreal,” said Gillespie. “We looked for Abukar and Josh to run 45 seconds faster than they have and they did. We needed Dylan and Jack to run a minute faster and they did. We hoped Abshir would finish third, but his T-band injury (the muscle outside the knee) became a problem. If he was third, we would have beaten Freeport by a point. It was a great season. Our goal was just to get here, not to finish third. We return everybody next year. That’s what’s so exciting.” New Englands The New England championships are a week from Saturday in Vermont. Terwilliger made the cut, as did the Cheverus girls’ team.

Boys’ soccer from page 18 ship. The Bulldogs made it to the 1994 Class A Final (losing, 1-0, to Mt. Ararat), then got to the regional final the next year (falling, 1-0, to the Capers). Prior to this year, Portland hasn’t been back since. In the regular season, the Bulldogs won, 1-0, at the Rams on Sept. 23. The teams’ lone prior playoff meeting came in the 2005 quarterfinals (a 3-0 Gorham victory). Portland is up for the challenge. “Gorham’s a great team,” Rovnak said. “They played hard last time. We’ll have to play our game and hope things turn out our way.” “We had goals at the start of the season to make it to the Western Maine championship,” Nabi said. “It’s really exciting. Gorham’s a good team. It’ll be a tough game. We played them at their place and scored in the last minute. We like our chances.” “For these kids, I was just hoping we could

make it,” Frenzilli added. “They made the difference. This earned us another game. We’re looking forward to our opponent. Gorham’s playing very well. It’ll make for a good one. We’re excited.”

Flying high again Two years ago, Waynflete came from nowhere to win the regional crown before losing to Washington Academy in the Class C state final. In 2009, the Flyers appeared primed for a title run, but were upset by Georges Valley in the quarterfinals. This fall, Waynflete has dazzled again, losing only to defending Class B champion Falmouth in a 10-1-2 campaign. The Flyers earned the No. 3 seed for the Western C playoffs and quickly dispatched No. 6 Mt. Abram in the quarterfinals behind two goals from senior Tucker Geoffroy, another from senior Omar Abdille and one from senior Sam Murphy. Senior Lukas Tubby and junior Daniel Wiener had assists and sophomore goalkeeper Zander Majercik stopped two

Girls in 11th and 12th grade go saves for the shutout. Saturday, at No. 2 St. Dom’s, the game was scoreless until Geoffroy scored with 1:49 left as Waynflete advanced. The winner came off a shot where Abdille hit the crossbar and Geoffroy pounced. “It was a melee,” Geoffroy said. “Omar took a shot. It went off the bar. It went off one of our player’s heads and off the goalie. I was just there to pick up the pieces. I saw the ball drop and there was the whole side of the net open.” “The ball didn’t find Tucker a couple of times earlier, even though he was unmarked,” said Flyers coach Brandon Salway. “Omar beat several defenders down the left side and his shot hit the crossbar, deflected off a defender and bounced to Geoffroy. He one-timed a right footed shot and beat the keeper. I thought if it squirts to him, he’s going to bury it. “We’ve been in tough games all year. This was like 75 percent of our games, back-andforth.

He really held the defense together.” “Tommy Ryan, Daniel Wiener, (sophomore) Charlie Laprade and (sophomore) Paul Runyambo had strong games,” Salway added. Wednesday (3 p.m.), Waynflete and NYA will meet in the playoffs for the first time. The teams met twice in the regular season, with the Flyers winning at home (2-0) Sept. 16 and at Yarmouth (1-0), Oct. 2. “We don’t view NYA as the eighth seed. Really they were second in our conference and they played a tough schedule, so it’s not a surprise that we are facing them,” Salway said. “Both of our games with them were really tightly contested and could have gone either way. Hopefully we can continue to make big plays when the game is on the line. We’ve scored three times in tie games with under two minutes left to win games, I think this group will be confident against NYA, but we also respect them and their ability.”

‘Forbidden Broadway’ tops A&E calendar By Scott Andrews One of the funniest shows in the long history of the New York theater tops this week’s offerings on the arts and entertainment calendar: A national traveling production of “Forbidden Broadway,” a wildly funny spoof of the shows and stars of the Great White Way, visits Portland this Friday under the aegis of Portland Ovations. Also on Friday, the Portland Wind Trio, comprising three University of Southern Maine School of Music professors, performs on the school’s Gorham campus with a program titled “Something Borrowed, Something New.” On Saturday in Portland, Dimensions in Jazz presents the Explorer’s Club, a sevenman ensemble led by saxophonist Charlie Kohlhase. Portland Symphony Orchestra takes off for musical outer space on Tuesday with “Planets,” a program that features a number of eclectic and exotic offerings, including Gustav Holst’s famous orchestral score of that name plus a very popular, very modern work by Charles Adams. ‘Forbidden Broadway’ The Tony is the most prestigious honor in American theater, and it’s only granted to Broadway shows. But sometimes that restriction is tweaked a bit to pay tribute to something that’s playing Off-Broadway. Such is the case with “Forbidden Broadway,” a notoriously funny parody of some of American Musical Theater’s most famous shows and stars. I’ve seen it several times, and I love its belly-busting humor and style. “Forbidden Broadway” was conceived and written by Gerard Alessandrini and originally staged Off-Broadway in 1982. It’s been playing more or less continuously ever since, and in 2006 the show received a special “Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theatre.” Two men and two women comprise the entire cast. The format is simple: a musical revue comprising about 20 sketches, each satirizing a famous Broadway show, star or producer. The show is continuously

updated, with some old sketches being periodically replaced by newer ones. Alessandrini is a genius in finding salient points in each show to mock. An exemple is “Chicago,” where Alessandrini’s targets include director/choreographer Bob Fosse’s famously angular dance poses, skimpy costumes and racy situations. Other lampooned shows include “Mary Poppins,” “Annie,” “Into the Woods,” “Wicked,” “Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Rent,” “Spamalot,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Hairspray” and “Cats.” Individuals singled out for spoofing include Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand. Portland Ovations presents the national tour of “Forbidden Broadway” at 8 p.m. Nov. 5 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800. Portland Wind Trio Three professors at the University of Southern Maine School of Music are teaming up on Friday with an interesting program titled, “Something Borrowed, Something Blue.” Comprised of bassoonist Ardith Keef, clarinetist Thomas Parchman and flutist Alison Hale, the Portland Wind Trio has been performing together for several decades. Keef is a member of the Portland Symphony Orchestra and plays with numerous other groups Maine Chamber Ensemble and Maine Baroque Ensemble. Parchman came to Maine in 1984 as a result of a joint search between the University of Southern Maine and the Portland Symphony Orchestra. Hale plays flute and piccolo, and has been a member of the Portland Symphony Orchestra since 1977. Friday’s program runs the gamut from Baroque to modern, beginning with an 18th-century trio sonata by Johann Sebastian Bach and ending with an arrangement of Joe Garland’s “In the Mood,” a classic mid-20th century jazz tune. Catch this concert at 8 p.m. Nov. 5 at

”Forbidden Broadway” is a Tony Awardwinning spoof of shows and stars of the Great White Way that has been playing for nearly 30 years. A national traveling company brings the show to Portland Nov. 5.

Corthell Hall on the University of Southern Maine’s Gorham campus. Call 780-5555. Charlie Kohlhase’s Explorer’s Club Charlie Kohlhase is a saxophonist – alto, tenor and baritone – and composer who is well known in Boston-area jazz circles for leading a variety of ensembles. One of his most recent projects is the Explorer’s Club, a seven-man group that’s most notable for having two saxophones and two drummers. Dimensions in Jazz will present the Explorer’s Club this Saturday as part of its ongoing program of hosting top national and regional acts. A couple of years ago, Kohlhase released “Adventures,” his new group’s first recording, which was well received by the public and reviewers. Troy Collins described it in All About Jazz as “a bracing and bold album.” Collins explained: “A versatile and inventive writer, Kohlhase pens intricate charts, balancing the rich multi-layered voicings of a large ensemble with the nimble dexterity of a small combo. Maximizing the ensemble’s raw sonic potential, his clever arrangements veer from the thorny contrapuntal fantasy of ‘Superhero Beatdown’ to the ornate unison lines of ‘Utensor.’” Dave Wayne commented on the unusual use of two drummers in Jazz Review: “I

find Kohlhase’s use of the dual drummers to be quite remarkable. Instead of having them play together all the time, Kohlhase pits one against the other – trading off parts and fills, one provides just accents or plays along with the front line while the other lays down the groove with the bassist. His compositions often have similar role reversals for the other instruments.” Dimensions in Jazz presents Charlie Kohlhase’s Explorer’s Club at 8 p.m. Nov. 6 at Woodford Congregational Church, 202 Woodford St. in Portland. Call 828-1310. Portland Symphony Orchestra The Portland Symphony Orchestra is blasting off for outer space – musically speaking. Maestro Robert Moody’s Nov. 9 program is titled “The Planets,” and it features three 20th-century works inspired by visions of space. The most modern of the three opens the concert. Charles Adams, a Massachusetts native who has worked most of his life in San Francisco, wrote “Short Ride in a Fast Machine” in 1986, and it’s become his most frequently performed work. It has been described as “manic,” “almost sadistic” and “joyfully exuberant.” But the most interesting comment comes from the composer himself: “You know how it is when someone asks you to ride in a terrific sports car, and then you wish you hadn’t.” The middle piece on the program is John Williams’ orchestral suite from “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” the Academy Award-nominated score from the Stephen Spielberg film. Musically speaking, its most interesting feature is the celebrated fivenote theme, which appears in fragments near the beginning and grandly morphs into a robust climax when the aliens appear. The wrap-up will be British composer Gustav Holst’s “The Planets,” a sevenmovement orchestral tone poem that is based on the astrological interpretations of the orbiting denizens of the solar system. Portland Symphony Orchestra presents “The Planets” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Academic plan from page 4 educational planning subcommittee, said the plan is expected to compliment the district’s multi-year budgeting efforts and its attempt to establish a comprehensive plan. Thompson said the draft is “a good start” and she looks forward to the more detailed work plans that will establish one-year, three-year and five-year goals. “We can talk all we want, but the plan is where the rubber meets the road,” she said. The draft is the latest step toward changing management of the district. Officials are trying to establish a more systematic approach, rather than the traditional sitebased management, where each school is given leeway to create its own programs. While site-based management has its benefits, Thompson said it has led to inequities between schools. “We’re all over the board (and) we wanted more uniformity,” Thompson said. “Not that everyone has to be on the same page everyday, but that one student going from one elementary school in the district to another wouldn’t be like going to a foreign country, which is where we are now.” Thompson said the committee held a series of teacher topic nights to lay the groundwork for the academic plan. Galin said he used that feedback as well as information he received from meetings with teachers, principals, administrators and others. The plan also includes demographic and student achievement data, both at the district level and for each school. There are about 7,200 students enrolled in the school system. Last year, 51 percent of all students received free or reduced lunch, 23 percent were English Language Learners and 17 percent had an identified

disability. Galin said that nearly everyone agreed Portland’s diversity is its greatest strength. But while diversity is a source of pride, Galin said it is also seen as a challenge. Teachers and principals are concerned that teachers were not getting enough training to deal with the district’s evolving challenges, he said. While the current teacher’s contract encourages professional development and offers raises for completed training, Galin said staff believes there should be clearer guidelines and a more focused approach to the types of development offered to teachers. “There are parameters, but they’re broad,” Galin said. “Teachers have had a lot of autonomy. ... We need to be able to focus professional development and have it available for all our staff.” Galin said student achievement may be better tracked through more detailed analysis during three-year periods. “We should be able to see trends in student learning,” he said. Galin and Thompson said they would like to receive feedback on the draft plan not only from parents, but from business owners, higher-education officials, nonprofit groups and residents without children. That feedback, Galin said, will be used to tweak the goals and inform the more detailed work plans. “Everyone is involved in the school system,” Galin said, noting he had only received two e-mails as of Monday. “Portland only works if we have a healthy, vibrant and knowledgeable community.” A draft of the plan may be found on the School Department website, Comments may be sent to Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

Budget from page 7 demand for food services. The budget also includes a $1.35 million Capital Improvement Program, which is funded from reserves and doesn’t affect the tax rate, Crichton said. The CIP will fund 27 projects, including $225,000 for ongoing maintenance at the courthouse parking garage in Portland and $70,500 for hazardous materials teams. Another $32,000 has been budgeted this year and next, Crichton said, to install a unified database in the district attorney’s office that will allow law enforcement agencies to share criminal data.

Foreign students from page 4 said, “so it’s not going to be a drain on resources. It’s going to be an asset.” The process for establishing a program in Portland,

More than $213,000 has been allotted for maintenance of the Cumberland County Civic Center. Another $200,000 has been budgeted to produce drawings and design work for proposed renovations to the center. Last month, a special task force approved the concept of adding premium seating, upgrading concession stands, adding more loading docks and restrooms and enhanced backstage facilities to the Civic Center. The cost of renovating the 6,700-seat venue, estimated between $27 million and $29 million, must be approved by voters, who could see the question on the November 2011 ballot. The first public hearing on the budget will take place in Portland on Monday, Nov. 8, at 6:30 p.m. at

the Cumberland County Courthouse, 250 Newbury St. Another hearing will take place the following evening at 6 p.m. at Scarborough Town Hall, 259 U.S. Route 1. Additional hearings will take place on Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. at Freeport Town Hall, 30 Main St., and Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. at the broadcast studio at the Jordan Small Middle School in Raymond. Crichton said the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners will convene for a budget meeting after the public hearings, before taking a final vote sometime in December. If approved, the budget would take effect on Jan. 1, 2011.

however, is only in its infant stages. “If anyone wants to know where we are in the process on a scale of 1 to 10, we’re at a one stage right now,” he said. “There’s still a lot of work to do.” Getting Homeland Security clearance is the only the first step. The district would also have to figure out

room and board options for the students. While dorms are one option, Morse said he believes that many foreign families would rather place their children in homes. “It’s a pretty exciting idea,” he said.

Mayor from page 1 The full-time elected mayor will get a salary of about $67,000 and serve a four-year term. The mayor will be elected through ranked-choice voting, in which voters rank candidates in order of preference. Comment on this story at:

The system is also known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;instant runoff voting.â&#x20AC;? The winner must receive more than 50 percent of the vote; if the top vote-getter does not earn more than 50 percent, the lowest vote-getter is eliminated and their non-first-place votes are redistributed to the remaining candidates. The process continues until a candidate has more than 50 percent of the total. The first mayoral election is set for November 2011. Jed Rathband, organizer of the elected mayor campaign, said Tuesday night he was relieved the question passed. He said

supporters recognized throughout the campaign that it would be a close call. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, I think people agreed that what we need is leadership at the local level,â&#x20AC;? Rathband said. The elected mayor campaign was also supported by the Portland Community Chamber of Commerce. Kate Bucklin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 1o6 or

The director of Upward Bound at the University of Southern Maine acknowledged that it may not be easy to replace current School Committee Chairman Peter Eglinton, who chose not to run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honored by the confidence that I think voters showed in my ability to

step into his shoes in District 3 and (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m) looking forward to doing that,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. Davis said she believes voters were drawn to her experience and expertise. For six years in the 1980s, Davis worked as the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior federal and city program evaluator. In that capacity, she developed experience with federal grant applications and accountability. Davis estimated she knocked on about 1,400 doors during her campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard that people were generally satisfied with Portland Public School and wanted to see (progress) continue,â&#x20AC;? she said. Caron said he is excited to return to the committee and continue its initiatives on facilities and comprehensive planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have the opportunity to to keep the momentum of what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing on the School Committee,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Upon resignation, island councilors expressed frustration with a perceived lack of response from city officials on issues of concern to islanders. The city is unsure at this point what it will do about the Peaks Island Council, which was created in the wake of a failed secession movement by a group of islanders. During their last weeks in service, Peaks Island councilors met with city officials, including Mayor Nick Mavodones, to discuss the possibility of creating a village corporation. A village corporation would have some decision-making authority over island issues and receive a portion of islandgenerated revenue to pay for some island operations.
