Residents launch drive to save Riverton library

Bagel Guy makes deliveries his business
By Randy Billings
By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — In a society that values service and convenience, Dennis Yesse can’t believe someone didn’t think of it sooner. Restaurants deliver lunch and dinner. Why not breakfast? That’s exactly what Yesse, better known to his customers as the Bagel Guy, does. He delivers freshly cooked bagels to households and cafes in Portland, South Portland and Cape Elizabeth. The cost, including delivery? A dollar per bagel and a minimum of six bagels. The variety? Whatever you want. Yesse’s day starts at 3:45 a.m. Before making his coffee, he makes his way into his Clinton Street garage, which has been converted into a modest bakery, and turns on the oven. Once pre-heated, he boils and bakes the bagels, which have been rolled out the day before and allowed to settle overnight.
Dennis Yesse, also known as the Bagel Guy, in his South Portland bakery on Monday morning, rolls fresh dough for bagels to be delivered Tuesday morning.
A mound of dough and wide array of spices await Yesse, a 57-year-old stay-at-home dad, who makes and delivers fresh bagels daily from his South Portland home.
PORTLAND — Residents have collected nearly 2,000 signatures in an effort to save the branch library at Riverton Elementary School. The effort comes as Portland Public Library officials are considering reducing the branch’s in-house collection and staff to save money. Chip Edgar, president of the Riverton Community Association, said the group hopes to use the petitions to put pressure on the library and City Council. “We’re not trying to get anything on a referendum,” Edgar said. “These are signatures of support.” Residents worked in two-hour polling place shifts on Election Day at the Armory on Stevens Avenue and at Grace Baptist Church on Washington Avenue to collect the signatures. RCA volunteers said people who had heard about the potential for library closure enthusiastically signed the petition. “We have to get the word out so people are informed,” Moore-Wood said. Moore-Wood said the group will go door-to-door to continue collecting signatures Library Executive Director Stephen Podganjy said he is pleased by the effort to generate support for the branch, which he would like to see remain open for 20 hours a week. “We have actively encouraged the neighborhood to communicate with the council regarding their desire to keep the branch open,” Podganjy said. “The neighborhood’s voice being heard is part of good public process. We are supportive of their effort and think that they are the most effective voice to advocate for the branch to remain open.” The Portland Public Library is funded by private and public sources. Podganjy said 80

CMP: Opposition to new meters ‘clearly unreasonable’ Cape Elizabeth joins towns urging CMP to delay ‘smart’ meters By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — The Town Council on Monday unanimously passed a resolution urging Central Maine Power Co. to delay installation of “smart” electric meters or related wireless equipment for at least 90 days. The resolution, which would give residents time to get additional information about the meters,
also encourages the Maine Public Utilities Commission to provide an opportunity for residents to speak for or against smart meters before they are installed in town. While the resolution is nonbinding and merely an expression of opinion or intention, councilors also added language See page 27
By Emily Parkhurst AUGUSTA — Central Maine Power Co. has asked the Maine Public Utilities Commission to dismiss one of two complaints filed in October by residents concerned about the safety of “smart” electric meters being installed on every CMP customer’s home or business. The complaint, filed Oct. 26 by Averyl Hill of Scarborough and signed by 11 CMP customers, asked the PUC to investi-
gate alleged fire safety hazards associated with installations of the new meters on homes with old wiring. It also questioned the level of training provided to employees of the company CMP has hired to do the work. “Because I had a new breaker box and wiring leading up to the meter installed by a licensed electrician last year and inspected by the town I believe I am OK,” Hill said. “But it got me thinking about the fact that
there are many aging homes in southern Maine with older wiring, so it could affect a lot of people and be an unexpected expense for homeowners.” CMP’s response, submitted Nov. 4, called the complaint “clearly unreasonable” and without merit because it was “inconsistent with applicable statues, rules and tariffs.” The response argues that “the

computers remain missing. Rogers said in a press release Saturday morning that tips from the public led police to a home on Irving Street, where police executed a search warrant on Friday night. Rogers said 61 of 78 Apple computers reported stolen on Nov. 4 were recovered, but no arrests were made. The 17 computers that are still missing were probably sold before the theft was reported, he said. “We are continuing this investigation. We expect to make an arrest and are hopeful that we can recover the remaining computers,” Rogers said. “If anyone has recently purchased a new Apple iMac or Apple MacBook at a reduced price or through a private seller we would like to hear from you.” In addition to the computers, Rogers said police also found a marijuana growing operation consisting of 12 pot plants. Although the computers, valued at

The computers, 33 iMac desktop models and 45 MacBook notebooks, were stored in a locked room while the school was under construction. The computers are new and were still in boxes. Rogers encouraged residents to contact police with any more information about the theft by calling 874-8533, or by texting GOTCHA plus their message to 274637. Meanwhile, the School Department announced Friday that the opening of the new 440-student school, originally scheduled for January, would be delayed because humidity levels are too high to finish the gym floor.

City council to take up gun prohibition, fee changes By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — The City Council will be asked Monday to support expanding state law to prohibit guns in places where mass gatherings take place. Councilors will also take up a recommendation from the Transportation Committee to reduce developer fees in lieu of parking that were approved earlier this year. The gun control resolution was recommended 2-0 by the Public Safety Committee on Oct. 12. Councilors Dan Skolnik and John Coyne cast the affirmative votes. Councilor Kevin Donoghue was absent. The resolution, proposed by Skolnik, supports creating state legislation that would expand the prohibition of guns in certain public places. Currently, guns are prohibited in court houses, jails and at schools, among other public locations. The council resolution asks that the prohibition be expanded to include city and town halls, recreational facilities, and entertainment facilities including
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/73266
civic centers and convention centers. The additional places are broadly defined in the resolution as “publicly owned or controlled buildings or facilities that host large public gatherings.” The resolution alternatively supports creating legislation that would enable individual municipalities to enact their own prohibitions, something that is not currently allowed. Fee changes The council will also reconsider a fee it passed in June that allows developers to pay into a city transportation fund rather than provide the number of parking spots required under city ordinance for new developments. In June, the council stipulated a fee of $10,000 for each parking space not provided. The council Transportation Committee is recommending the council reduce the fee to $5,000.
The committee is also recommending the council restore off-site leased parking as an acceptable alternative to on-site parking. The off-site parking leases would have to be for a minimum of five years.

You’re Never Too Smart to Get Conned By John Gannon, President of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation Smart people get conned too. Just ask Sarasota, Fla. tax attorney John McKenney. A lawyer for more than 20 years, he represents clients in front of the IRS and prepares tax returns for local businesses. He also lost $250,000 in an alleged Ponzi scheme. “There are a lot of people around here that lost a lot more money than I did who were smarter and more experienced investors,” McKenney said. The common misconception about investment fraud victims is that they are gullible, unsophisticated or ﬁnancially illiterate. In fact, research conducted for the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and AARP reveals just the opposite is true. The survey of more than 300 investors—half of whom were victimized by fraud—showed that victims tend to be higher income, college-educated, self-reliant and are more ﬁnancially knowledgeable than non-victim investors. Many investment fraud victims are professionals. They’re doctors, lawyers, stock
brokers, businessmen. In fact, the typical investment fraud victim is a well-educated male between the ages of 55 and 65. The problem, says Robert Cialdini, a psychologist at Arizona State University and an expert on the psychology of persuasion and inﬂuence, is that your own self conﬁdence lowers your guard. “If you think you’re invulnerable to these things, your defenses come down and you become more vulnerable as a consequence,” he said. “So those individuals who have the background and experience, who think they know what constitutes a trick and what doesn’t, then open themselves up to the possibility of being tricked because they’re sure that they can spot it and resist it. Oftentimes they are wrong.” SaveAndInvest.org is a project of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, in collaboration with AARP, the Maine Ofﬁce of Securities and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Are You at Risk for Investment Fraud? FINRA Foundation/AARP research shows that the typical victim of investment fraud is a well-educated male between the ages of 55 and 65. You also may be at risk if you: 1. Own high-risk investments. 2. Rely on friends, family or co-workers for advice. 3. Are open to new investment ideas. 4. Fail to check backgrounds and registrations of professionals or products. 5. Are not able to spot the persuasion tactics con men use. Test your susceptibility to fraud with the FINRA Foundation’s Risk Meter, available at SaveAndInvest.org/55Plus.

Proposal would add affordable housing to Bayside By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Additional affordable housing may be coming to the Bayside neighborhood. Avesta Housing is seeking approveal for the second phase of Pearl Place, near the corner of Pearl and Lancaster streets. The project, which was scheduled for a Planning Board workshop Tuesday, Nov. 9, would add a total of 54 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments for incomeeligible residents. Avesta Development Officer Ethan Boxer-Macomber said demand for affordable housing in Bayside is high. When the original 60 units at Pearl Place opened in 2008, Boxer-Macomber said, the apartments were filled within a month.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/73580
There are now seven prospective tenants waiting for every unit in the building. “Demand is very, very high,” he said. If planning approvals go smoothly, Avesta could break ground in January and finish at least one of the new buildings by December 2011, Boxer-Macomber said. Avesta has already secured funding for a 30-unit building, which would be built at the lower end of the Pearl Street block. It is still seeking funding for the remaining 24 units. Boxer-Macomber said the $6.5 million in costs for the 30 units is being funded through a combination of private financ-

ing, a $1.65 million state subsidy and an estimated $4.5 million in tax credits from the Maine State Housing Authority. In addition to tapping the same funding sources for the remaining 24 units, BoxerMacomber said Avesta is seeking $500,000 through the city’s HOME program, which is funded by federal grants. The project will contain a variety of green elements, including a green roof, rain garden, LED lights on timers, solar water heaters and energy-efficient mechanical systems. If approved for city funding, the 24-unit building would have to obtain a silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Last year, the City Council adopted an
ordinance requiring LEED certification for projects that receive at least $250,000 in city funds. “We’re fully designing to those standards,” Boxer-Macomber said. Avesta is scheduled to meet with the city’s Housing Committee to discuss the fund on Wednesday, Nov. 10. When finished, Boxer-Macomber said the project should go a long way toward helping revitalize the Bayside neighborhood, as well as reducing vehicle traffic, since only 65 percent of residents use a vehicle due to the development’s proximity to downtown. “It’s really going to help that neighborhood turn the corner,” he said.

Portland students build affordable homes in Westbrook, Freeport By Randy Billings WESTBROOK — On a rainy Friday afternoon, more than a dozen builders scattered throughout three unfinished houses, painting boards and hanging sheet rock. The three single-family homes with covered porches are being built along Breman Street, a small gravel road off Lincoln Street. But the city’s newest neighborhood, taking shape within eye-shot of Rover Meadow Golf Course, isn’t being built by profit-seeking developers. The builders are students from Portland’s Deering High School, part of a unique partnership between Habitat for Humanity, Americorps and the National Citizens Community Corps. The partnership is one of 13 nationwide being funded with an $8,000 grant from Habitat for Humanity International and State Farm insurance, which has committed $1.1 million a year since becoming a corporate sponsor in 2007. When finished by the end of this year, three families will have affordable housing. Two of the houses have been sold, while one remains on the market. Stefanie Millette, the education and special project’s coordinator for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland, said one of the homes will be going to a single mother with three children, one of whom is autistic. Millette said the floor plan of the
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/73256
home has been altered to accommodate the child’s special needs and the mother is completing the 250 hours of labor required for each able-bodied adult to live in the home. “This is going to be a kid-friendly neighborhood, for sure,” said Millett, noting a six-person family with four kids had purchased another one the homes. “It will be great in the spring to see all of the kids running around.” In addition to the three Westbrook houses, the students will build another three homes on South Street in Freeport before the school year is over. Student James “Greg” Russo, 17, was busy replacing a piece of sheet rock on the ceiling of what would become an upstairs bedroom in one of the Westbrook homes. Having worked with his father, who owns a commercial maintenance business, Russo was no stranger to the work. He said he was participating in the program to fine-tune his skills and raise his grades to attend the Portland Arts and Technical High School next year. “This is a good trade and something I want to do,” he said. Two houses down, however, Paul Danh, who was struggling with a pesky sheet rock screw, wasn’t quite as sure hanging sheet rock is a profession he
would like to pursue. “You’ve got to make sure it’s straight up and down,” said Asa Gorman, an Americorps worker, whose voice barely cut through the Rolling Stones song on the stereo. “Plumb is the word for that.” When Dahn was asked when he might use his new skills, the 18-year-old said “maybe fixing my own house.” “At least, you didn’t have to spend all kinds of money to figure that out,” added Robyn Fink, Deering High School’s Jobs for Maine’s Graduate job specialist. Fink said helping students figure out what they want to do after high school is one of Jobs for Maine’s Graduates’s goals. Raising grades and aspirations are others, she said.

More than $20M authorized for regional transportation projects By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — The Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System has announced more than $20 million in funding for road, path and bus projects in greater Portland. The funding is made up of local, state and federal contributions and was decided after PACTS undertook a regional analysis
of the needs of the 15 municipalities and seven public transit systems in the area. In Portland, funding was authorized for several paving projects including about $1.1 million for paving along the Eastern Promenade and almost $800,000 to pave Capisic Street. The money for the paving projects will be available in the next few months. On Park Avenue, $260,000 will be allo-
News briefs Portland still in search of Christmas Tree PORTLAND — The city is still searching for the perfect Christmas Tree to display in Monument Square this holiday season. What’s wanted is a 40- to 60-foot, well-rounded tree within 10 miles of Portland that the owner would like removed. If selected, the city will cut down and haul the tree free of charge. The tree will be erected in the square, decorated with hundreds of LED lights and illuminated the day after Thanksgiving. This year’s tree lighting ceremony takes place at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 26. To submit a tree for consideration, send a picture of the tree along with the address and phone number of the owner to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail the information and picture to Portland’s Downtown District, 549 Congress St., Portland, ME 04101.
Schools weigh sports, co-curricular changes PORTLAND — The School Department will hold a public hearing on Nov. 18 to discuss potential changes to middle and high school athletics and co-curricular activities. Potential changes include establishing a nonprofit foundation to solicit grants and corporate sponsorships, hiring a co-curricular director, consolidating the purchases of sporting equipment and uniforms, and raising academic eligibility standards for athletes. The changes are recommended in a report from the Red & Blue Foundation, a Boston-based consulting firm that interviewed 65 stakeholders at the School Committee’s request. The report also calls for more academic support for athletes and co-curricular participants, as well as combining boosters into a single club, tying funding to participation rates, setting a consistent policy for gate revenues, and developing consistent hiring procedures for coaches. The Nov. 18 public hearing will run from 7-9 p.m. in the Deering High School gym.
Portland Rec offers indoor winter walking PORTLAND — Three community centers will offer weekday indoor walking programs starting Nov. 15 for people looking to stay active – and warm – this winter. The morning programs will be offered from 6-7:30 a.m. at the East End, Reiche and Riverton community centers. Mile markers will be placed along the route for walkers to track their distance. The program, which runs until March
18, 2011, is free and open to all ages. For more information, contact Portland recreation at 756-8275 or email@example.com.
cated to improve bike lanes and pedestrian ways. Nearly $200,000 was set aside for a pedestrian connection at the Interstate 295 Exit 7 ramp from Marginal Way to the Back Cove trail. Both those projects are scheduled to happen between October 2011 and September 2013. About $112,000 is earmarked for an electronic ticket program at Casco Bay Lines. In Scarborough, $3 million will go toward construction of the intersection at Dunston Corner. That funding will become available between October 2011 and September 2013. Funding for connecting the Eastern trail in South Portland to Scarborough is also earmarked for that time.
South Portland is also slated to get about $203,000 for a Mill Creek transit hub and nearly $240,000 for a transit maintenance building. In Cape Elizabeth, more than $40,000 in funding will be allocated for a project yet to be determined, but possibly for the Shore Road pathway. That funding will be available in the coming months. Falmouth is getting more than $30,000 for paving Route 1. About $766,000 is going toward paving of Route 1 in Freeport. In Cumberland, more than $400,000 was authorized for paving and sidewalk construction along Tuttle Road. Kate Bucklin can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Students from page 5 “A lot of the skills are transferable,” Fink said. “They’re going to have to work with other people, give direction and take direction.” The homes are the first Habitat for Humanity project in the state to use steel beams, rather than wood framing, Gorman said. Americorps volunteer Marjorie BuieCollard said the homes will be so well insulated that special air handling sys-
tems have been installed. The systems not only exchange air, but preheat the cool air coming into the house, she said. Student Mike Griffin, 18, was not only helping to build the house, but was filming the construction. Once the houses are built, Griffin said he will edit the footage into video that shows the student’s problem-solving skills as well as building skills. “It’s going to show little clips of what people are doing, the problems we have and how we solve them,” he said.

Yesse has been cooking bagels in his home for about five years. The New Jersey native had a hankering that could not be satisfied by local bagels, so he found a recipe he liked and began making them for himself and his family.
Soon, Yesse’s friends caught a whiff of his hobby and wanted bagels, too. Then, his freinds’ friends heard about the home baker and also wanted in on the action.
And the work doesn’t end with the last delivery, said Yesse, who returns home and begins making the next day’s bagel orders.
“I’m the kind of guy who cannot find something, I go after it,” he said.

“It’s 7:30 a.m. and it’s a blizzard outside,” Yesse said. “Do you want to get out of your bed and go get bagels? Or do you me to get out of my bed, bake them and put them on your door?”

Yesse delivers his bagels to three local cafes: the PeRx-U-Up Cafe on Marginal Way in Portland, the Cambridge Coffee Bar Bakehouse on Broadway in South Portland and the Local Buzz in Cape Elizabeth.
Meanwhile, Yesse said he also delivers to between 50 and 60 private homes and has catered numerous business meetings. Many of his private clients order a week’s worth of bagels at a time, he said.
The growth of Yesse’s business forced him to convert his 10-by-12-foot garage into a small bakery.
Only into his first year in his expanded bakery, Yesse said he is already thinking about expanding into a new space, one that will allow him sell his bagels to walk-in clients. But not before he can pay off his expansion, he said.
Any new bakery, however, would have to be in South Portland, Yesse said.
“It fits in with the neighborhood and the people,” he said. “It’s a nice lifestyle.”
Yesse said he typically offers more than a dozen varieties of bagels and is willing to make special orders.
“If you have had a bagel you can’t find, I will create it for you,” he said. “It’s a world of choices.”

Drop us a line The Forecaster welcomes letters to the editor as a part of the dialogue so important to a community newspaper. Letters should be no longer than 250 words; longer letters may be edited for length. Letters to the editor will also always be edited for grammar and issues of clarity, and must include the writer’s name, full address and daytime and evening telephone numbers. If a submitted letter requires editing to the extent that, in the opinion of the editor, it no longer reflects the views or style of the writer, the letter will be returned to the writer for revision, or rejected for publication. Deadline for letters is noon Monday, and we will not publish anonymous letters or letters from the same writer more than once every four weeks. Letters are published at the discretion of the editor and as space allows. E-mail letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Columns welcome The Forecaster invites readers to express their views in our pages in the hope that these opinion columns will help generate thoughtful debate on local issues. We are eager to provide space for a diversity of opinion and perspectives, which we will publish as “Forum” pieces on our Opinion pages. We would especially like to receive submissions from those who may have a particular background in a subject related to local or statewide issues. As our space is limited, we would ask that these submissions for these Forum columns be limited to 550 words, and they should be exclusive to The Forecaster. If you would like more information on a possible Forum column, you can contact Mo Mehlsak at 781-3661 ext. 107, or at email@example.com. The Forecaster disclaims all legal responsibility for errors or omissions or typographic errors. All reasonable care is taken to prevent such errors. We will gladly correct any errors if notification is received within 48 hours of any such error. We are not responsible for photos, which will only be returned if you enclose a self-addressed envelope.
Intentionally out of touch Despite the many ways we are all connected in this wired world of cell phones, e-mail, text messaging, Facebook and Twitter, we are also increasingly out of touch. Or, more to the point, we are only in touch with the privileged few and out of touch with reality.
The Universal As a journalist, I constantly find myself trying to figure out how to contact people the newspapers and magazines I write for want me to interview. When I first started writing for publications in the 1960s, it was a fairly simple matter of looking someone up in the phone book. Everyone had a telephone Edgar Allen Beem and it was rare (and somehow suspect) when someone had an unlisted number.
Now, as people increasingly abandon land lines for cell phones, and there are no cell phone (or e-mail) directories, I often have to resort to tracking people down through their friends and known associates. If I’m lucky, the go-between will forward my message and I’ll eventually hear back from the person. On the one hand, the new age of non-disclosure probably protects our privacy, but it also insulates us from the outside world. I’m all in favor of do-not-call lists in order avoid the annoyance of telemarketers, but there is an aspect of a shared public life that gets sacrificed when no one can contact you except people to whom you have given your cell phone number or e-mail address. If you wonder why some polls showed candidates

much closer than the results turned out to be, it may simply be that pollsters can only reach old farts with land-line phones. When I worked at Portland Public Library in the 1970s, we constantly used city directories to research and find people. You could find out who lived where and even what they did for a living. Now such listings would probably be regarded by many people as an invasion of privacy. What is it, I wonder, that we are afraid of? Why are we hiding in plain sight? I like to think I make it easy for people to contact me. I’m in the phone book, I have an answering machine, my name and picture are on my column, and I don’t mind if the paper gives out my e-mail address. I do not, however, tweet or text and I rarely give out my cell phone number, preferring that only my family call me when I’m not at home. (Can you hear me now? I don’t get cell phone reception at home.) In an odd way, the access that everyone now has to communications technology, incessantly tweeting, texting, and chatting wherever and whenever, may actually be contributing to a collective bunker mentality if we are only in touch with the likeminded. In the recent election, we saw a new level of noncommunication as many conservative candidates adopted the strategy of refusing to talk to the news media, or only to friendly news media, and in some cases even ducking out of public debates. I guess it’s a lot easier to remain confident in your own fixed ideas if you don’t have to answer for them. I just hope we haven’t elected a bunch of people in this country who are so out of touch that they can’t thoughtfully consider an alternative point of view.

Library from page 1 percent, or about $3.1 million, of the library’s nearly $3.8 million budget comes from taxpayers. In June, the council approved $90,000 to keep the Riverton branch open for one year, but would not make a multi-year commitment. “The City Council has told us quite directly that the current year’s funding is for one year only and it is transitional to allow us time to develop a plan to maintain a library presence in the neighborhood,” Podganjy said. Residents sprung into action last spring when it became known that library and public school officials were ready to immediately implement changes, despite the additional funding. Their opposition led to postponement of the plans, which included replacement of librarians by machines. Podgajny said the library would continue to have a foothold in the community, which would have access to the library’s full collection through a delivery system. But he said the machines are still expected to replace the librarians. Superintendent of Schools James C. Morse had said the space occupied by the branch would be used to expand the Portland Adult Education program. But about

a dozen residents met in June with Morse and Podgajny and convinced them to hold off a year on all the changes. RCA member Sally Donelson said this week she hopes the petition signatures will help convince city officials to continue funding the branch, which accounts for only 2.4 percent of the library’s budget. But she predicted more needs to be done. “This is not enough,” Donelson said. “In my opinion, they are on a mission to close that library.” Edgar said that opinion is one shared by many residents, even though Podgajny has repeatedly said he wants to keep it open. “I don’t disbelieve it,” Edgar said. “But (Podgajny) hasn’t done anything to support that comment.” But Podganjny, who is setting up another neighborhood meeting, said he truly wants to keep the library open, but must plan for the reality of the upcoming budget. “I am not sure what actions have not matched our words,” he said. “If some folks don’t believe what we say publicly then I am not sure what to think.” Edgar said the group will continue to work with library, school and city officials to keep the branch open, even though many residents feel as though closure is a certainty. “We are totally focused on what we have to do to get the library to stay open,” Edgar said. “If you close down the Riverton branch you are isolating a big part of the city.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cheverus survives Scarborough in semifinal (Ed. Note: For the full version of this story, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer PORTLAND — The Cheverus football team has treated its fans and tortured its coaches with a highwire act in recent weeks, but the Stags continue to find a way to win. Saturday afternoon, Cheverus and upstart Scarborough went toe-to-toe in the Western A semifinals and once again, the Stags made just enough big plays at the right moments to live to play another day. Cheverus never trailed, but never led by more than seven and didn’t take the lead for good until 7:38 remained when senior workhorse Evan Jendrasko bulled in for a 2-yard touchdown run. The Stags came up with a defensive stop, then ran out the final 5 minutes, 6 seconds to hold on and beat the Red Storm, 21-14. Cheverus improved to 10-0 and will meet city rival Deering (8-2) in the Western A Final, Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Scarborough’s best-ever Class A season by a mile came to a close at 8-2. “It was a battle,” said Jendrasko. “A little messy and sloppy, but that’s how our team does it. Usually with our grit and determination, we pull it out.”
Compelling duel Cheverus has stolen headlines all season

Cheverus senior Peter Gwilym soars through the air as he attempts to block Scarborough senior Nathan Provencher’s extra point. The Stags eked out a 21-14 win and will host Deering in next weekend’s Western A Final.
en route to an 8-0 mark and the top seed for the regional playoffs. Last weekend, Cheverus rallied from a 27-14 third period deficit to defeat No. 8 Windham, 34-27, in the quarterfinals. Scarborough, meanwhile, rebounded from a 1-7 campaign, went 7-1 under new
coach Lance Johnson and earned the No. 5 seed for its first ever Western A playoff appearance, then rolled, 48-14, at No. 4 Biddeford last Saturday. The Stags and Red Storm hadn’t met since the 2004 season and split the two prior encounters. They had no playoff history.
Saturday, Scarborough had its chances, but ultimately, Cheverus moved on. The Red Storm got the ball first and picked up a first down, but the Stags’ defense would stiffen and forced a punt and the hosts took over at their 17. Nine plays and 3 minutes, 39 seconds later, Cheverus had the lead. A 10 yard run from Jendrasko set the tone. After senior quarterback Peter Gwilym rushed for 12 yards and Jendrasko followed with a 14 yard scamper, the Stags were in Scarborough territory. Four plays later, Gwilym broke two tackles and raced 25 yards to the 6, setting the stage for a 6-yard TD run from junior Spencer Cooke. Junior Louie DiStasio added the point-after and the Stags were ahead, 7-0, with 4:42 to play in the opening quarter. The Red Storm went three-and-out and were forced to punt on their next series, but junior Matt Brown was roughed and the visitors retained possession. They would meticulously march down the field and as the first period gave way to the second, were in Cheverus territory. With 9:36 to go in the first half, junior Scott Thibeault ran 16 yards down the left sideline, on the 17th play of the drive, to tie the score, 7-7. After a Cheverus punt, Scarborough moved again, but on fourth-and-2 from the Stags’ 41, with senior Mike Cyr replaccontinued page 15
Deering shocks Bonny Eagle in semifinals
By Eric Carson STANDISH — Ever since coach Kevin Cooper arrived, the road to Super Saturday has gone through the Bonny Eagle Scots. Saturday, for the fifth time in seven years, the Deering Rams had to make the trip west hoping to spring a semifinal round
upset. This fall, third-ranked Deering shocked the No. 2 Scots, 28-6, and a new folk hero was born. This time he would wear purple-andwhite. Deering senior quarterback Jamie Ross strolled out Joe Montana-cool and
dropped a “Tim Tebow” on a proud Scots team in a performance that will come to define his record-setting career. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Ross had it all going on in this one, putting his own identity crisis to work for No. 3 Deering, passing for 137 yards and two touchdowns
and rushing 29 times for 106 yards and two more scores, pacing a Rams team that left no doubts behind in a 28-6 victory over Bonny Eagle (8-2) in the mud and gray of Saturday to advance to the regional title game. continued page 17
Portland’s dream season ends in state final Bulldogs fall, 3-2, to Bangor By Michael Hoffer
Jason Veilleux / For The Forecaster
Portland sophomore Tim Rovnak soars through the air to head home a goal early in the first half to give the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead over Bangor in Saturday night’s Class A state final. That would be the Bulldogs’ high water mark, however, as they fell, 3-2.
FALMOUTH — After a late season surge and an inspirational playoff run, the stars appeared to finally be aligned for the Portland boys’ soccer team to win a first ever state championship Saturday evening at Falmouth High School. When Bulldogs sophomore Tim Rovnak struck twice in a 41-second span early in the first half of Saturday’s Class A final against Bangor, a Gold Ball seemed close enough to taste. In the end, however, it wasn’t to be, as the Rams rallied for a pair of goals in a 2:13 span late in the half to take the lead. Despite ample opportunities and close calls, Portland couldn’t score again and saw its best season since 1994 end at 15-2-1 after a painful 3-2 setback. Bangor senior Phil Frost proved to be the difference, scoring three times, including
a controversial go-ahead tally off a direct kick, that was believed (by those in blue and white anyway) to be an indirect kick. The Rams held on to finish 17-0-1 and won their second state championship. “We were proud to be one of two teams left playing in the state,” said longtime Bulldogs coach Rocky Frenzilli. “Congrats to Bangor. They deserved it.” Oh so close Portland, a semifinalist in 2009, entered the season expected to be a top contender, but an early 3-1 home loss to Scarborough and a 1-1 tie at Windham left the Bulldogs just 1-1-1. They wouldn’t stumble again, winning their final 11 regular season contests to lock up the No. 2 seed with a 12-1-1 mark. Portland dominated rival No. 7 Cheverus in the quarterfinals, scoring early and often en route to a 6-0 triumph. Next up was a thriller against No. 3 Cape Elizabeth in the semifinals.

Waynflete boys upset in regional final (Ed. Note: For the full version of this story, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer PORTLAND — Not again. That was the lament of the Waynflete boys’ soccer team last Wednesday afternoon when, for the second year in a row, its promising season and title hopes were derailed by a painful playoff loss, this time, 1-0, at the hands of rival North Yarmouth Academy in the Western Class C Final. The Flyers dominated the game’s first 30 minutes, but couldn’t convert. The Panthers
then picked up the pace and got the game’s lone score with 22:21 to play when senior Niklas Narvanmaa scored off a corner kick. NYA held on behind the goalkeeping of senior Jordan Haskell and ended Waynflete’s superb campaign at 12-2-2.
We’ve seen this movie before Waynflete went 10-1-2 in the regular year, losing only to defending Class B champion Falmouth in the finale. The Flyers earned the No. 3 seed for the Western C playoffs and quickly dispatched No. 6 Mt. Abram, 4-0, in the quarterfinals and No. 2 St. Dom’s, 1-0, in the semis.

NYA, meanwhile, was in danger of missing the playoffs at the midpoint of the season, but the Panthers saved their best for last, going 4-0-1 down the stretch to wind up 7-5-1 and eighth in Western C. They upset top-ranked Wiscasset, 1-0, in overtime in the quarterfinals, then ousted No. 5 Hall-Dale, 2-1, in the semifinals. Wednesday’s regional final marked the first ever playoff game between the rivals. NYA lost twice to the Flyers this fall, 2-0, in Portland Sept. 16 and 1-0 at home Oct. 2. This time around, Waynflete dominated early, but just couldn’t convert. Just two minutes in, off a corner kick, Flyers junior Mitch Newlin got off a weak shot, but Haskell had to dive to make the save. Twenty-five seconds later, senior Lukas Tubby shot just high and wide from a tough angle. With 28:55 to play in the 40-minute first half, Haskell punched the ball away from sophomore Peabo Knoth off a lob from senior Omar Abdille. Nine minutes later, senior Tucker Geoffroy sent a through ball to classmate Sean Murphy, but Murphy’s shot was denied by Haskell. With 17:55 left in the half, sophomore Paul Runyambo served the ball toward classmate Kevin Kanakan, but Haskell got there first. Two minutes later, after a corner kick (Waynflete had six to NYA’s one in the first half), Newlin shot just wide. With 8:17 remaining, Abdille beat two defenders and set up Murphy in front, but his shot was saved. Then, momentum slowly turned toward the visitors and the teams went to the half scoreless. In the second half, the Panthers would eventually break through. First, Geoffroy had another nice rush broke up, just 1 minute, 45 seconds in. With 26 minutes to play in regulation, Abdille played a ball through to Geoffroy, but Haskell again got to the pass first. NYA struck with 22:21 to play. Off a corner kick, Ryan Rousseau sent the ball

Waynflete sophomore Peabo Knoth falls into the goal, but unfortunately for his team the ball doesn’t join him as NYA senior goalkeeper Jordan Haskell punches it away during last week’s Western C Final. Haskell fended off countless Flyers’ charges to pitch the shutout in a 1-0 victory.
on net and out of nowhere swooped Narvanmaa, a Finnish exchange student, who headed it home. “It happened so fast,” said Salway. “They had a kid make a really good play.” The hosts had chances to answer. With 19:33 to go, a Runyambo serve was headed away. Five minutes later, Daniel Wiener shot just high with his left foot off a corner. The golden opportunity to tie the score came with 10:47 left when Geoffroy took a pass and beat a defender. Haskell coolly came out of the goal and got a hand on the shot, however, sending it high and setting up a corner. On the ensuing corner, Tubby got his foot on the ball in the box, but couldn’t put enough on it. With 8:31 left, Haskell had to scramble

Scarborough senior Scott Merrill tries futilely to prevent Cheverus junior Louie DiStasio from making a clutch catch near the end of the first half. DiStasio’s grab led to a go-ahead touchdown.
from page 13 ing senior Jack Adams behind center, Cyr was thrown for a three-yard loss after a bad snap. The Stags took over at their 44 and drove for the go-ahead score. On third-and-8, Gwilym dropped back and hit DiStasio for 22 yards for a first down as the receiver dove to make the catch along the right sideline. Two plays later, Gwilym floated a pass down the middle and DiStasio made a great catch in traffic and landed at the 3. Gwilym took it in on his patented sweep to the left on the next play and DiStasio gave Cheverus a 14-7 lead with 54.6 seconds remaining in the half. Scarborough looked to answer, but Adams was intercepted by Cheverus senior Liam Hobbins to end the half. In the first 24 minutes, the Stags had a narrow 168-166 advantage in total yardage. The game remained tight in the third and fourth quarters. After Cheverus turned the ball over on downs to start the second half, the Red Storm drove 65 yards to tie the score at 1414 on a 37 yard Adams-to-Cyr pass with 6:12 left to go in the third quarter.. Scarborough’s defense forced a punt and the visitors got the ball right back with a chance to take the lead. The Red Storm would move to the Cheverus 29, but on second-and-9 from the 29, Adams was sacked by Jendrasko, fumbled and senior A.J. Bennett made a crucial recovery for the Stags, sending momentum back to the home sideline. “We slanted perfectly and I got through the line,” Jendrasko said. “I was determined to get the quarterback. I knew we needed a big play. It was a big shift in momentum. We came up big with some big plays on defense.” “That sack was huge,” Wolfgram said. “It turned the game. They actually had eight guys in blocking consistently. It was tough to get at the quarterback.” Starting at Scarborough’s 45, the Stags drove for the lead. Two Jendrasko rushes moved the ball to the 32 as the third period ended and the fourth began. After Cooke and Jendrasko ran three times for 14 yards and another first down, Cheverus bogged down and faced fourth-and-7 at the Red Storm 15. Wolfgram could have opted for a DiStasio field goal attempt as he’s emerged as one of the finest kickers in the area, but the legendary coach decided to roll the dice and came up a winner as Gwilym hit senior Jack Bushey on a quick hitter for seven yards and a first-and-goal at the 8. “I thought we were a little far for (the field goal),” said Wolfgram. “I didn’t have a good feel for it.” After Jendrasko rushed for six yards, he capped the 11 play, 5:13 drive with a 2-yard run. DiStasio’s extra point with 7:38 to go made it 21-14 Stags. To its credit, Scarborough didn’t wilt. The Red Storm made immediate noise when sophomore Merrick Madden returned the kickoff 39 yards to the Scarborough 41. Two plays later, Adams found senior Kyle Kelley for 28 yards, as the receiver hauled in the ball while falling to the ground with Gwilym breathing down his neck. Gritty senior running back Mark Pearson gained seven yards and Thibeault two, but on thirdand-1 from the 15, Pearson was held for no gain. Scarborough went for it on fourth down, but again the Stags’ defense rose to the occasion, holding Pearson to no gain
pieces and coach Johnson’s done a good job putting them together. They weren’t 8-1 with smoke and mirrors. They run well and do sound things. They gave us all we wanted for sure. It was different because we hadn’t seen them all year. We hadn’t even seen them on tape. The teams in our division we see all the time. We didn’t have a feel for them, not seeing them live. We face mostly spread teams. We don’t see a lot of I-formation football.”

and with 5:06 left, the hosts took over at their 15. Scarborough never saw the ball again. On third-and-8 from the 17, Gwilym again found Bushey, this time for 29 yards and the Stags had some breathing room. “The passes to Bushey were big,” Wolfgram said. “He’s a good receiver for us.” From there, Jendrasko, Hobbins and Gwilym salted away the victory and time ran out on the hard-fought 21-14 triumph. “It was confusing because we hadn’t seen (Scarborough) before,” said Jendrasko. “We prepared well and were ready for what they threw at us.” “I thought our kids hung tough,” Wolfgram said. “Defensively, we made the plays when we had to. We ran out the clock. We had key passes. We threw in the first half basically to get ahead. We moved the ball well in the second half, but made mistakes and hurt ourselves. We didn’t have the continuity we needed. We made mistakes that hurt our rhythm. (Scarborough) played efficient football. We like to play like that way too, but we weren’t as efficient as they were. They’re a very good team.” Statistically, Cheverus gained 328 yards, 30 more than the Red Storm. Jendrasko rushed for 128 yards and a TD on 24 carries. He also caught a pass for eight yards. Cooke managed 56 yards and a score on 12 attempts. Gwilym rushed for 39 yards and a TD on eight carries. Through the air, he was a perfect 7-of-7 for 100 yards. Bushey
had three catches for 38 yards, DiStasio two for 54. The Stags didn’t turn the ball over and were penalized only twice for 11 yards. For the visitors, Pearson rushed 23 times for 96 tough yards. Thibeault added 40 yards and a score on seven tries. Adams completed 11-of-22 passes for 155 yards, a TD and an interception. Viola caught three passes, good for 32 yards. Cyr had two catches for 56 yards and a TD. Kelley caught a pair for 39 and Thibeault had two receptions for 19. Scarborough was flagged three times for 15 yards and turned the ball over twice. “Scarborough played very well,” said Wolfgram. “They have a lot of good
Cheverus will play in the Western A Final for the second year in a row. The Stags will host a Deering team that is on a high after upsetting No. 2 Bonny Eagle, 28-6, in its semifinal. Just two weeks ago, Oct. 23, host Cheverus pummeled the Rams, 44-14. The Stags know that the next meeting will be much tougher. “It’s like playing a completely different team,” said Jendrasko. “There are ups and downs, but we’ll defend the hill one more time in the Western Maine final and that feels good. It should be a good one. We have to step it up every play.” “I just think the kids have a lot of resolve,” Wolfgram said. “They’re good competitors and play the game they way it’s supposed to be played. We work hard for 48 minutes. We’ll start thinking about (Deering) tomorrow.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

Portland from page 13 Fazal Nabi (who had been denied moments earlier on a PK) scored a tying goal and Rovnak delivered a score in overtime for a 2-1 win. The Bulldogs completed their
regional journey Wednesday by holding off No. 4 Gorham, 2-1, in the Western A Final. Portland had just one prior regional championship to its credit. That came in 1994, when the Bulldogs lost, 1-0, to Mt. Ararat in the state game. Bangor was 13-0-1 in the regular season, tying Lawrence, and wound up first in Eastern A. The Rams advanced to states by virtue of regional wins over No. 8 Erskine (2-1), No. 4 Morse (5-0) and No. 3 Brunswick (2-1, in double overtime). Bangor has enjoyed even-numbered sea-

sons of late. In 2006, the Rams made it to the Class A Final for the first time, edging Scarborough, 1-0, in double overtime. Two years ago, Bangor got back, but this time lost to Scarborough, 1-0, in OT. Saturday, the Rams would get the job done in regulation, but Portland didn’t make it easy. The action was fast and furious from the get-go in front of a huge and vocal crowd. In just the third minute, off a throw in, Frost made his presence felt with a header, but Bulldogs senior goalkeeper Taylor Mannix made the save. With 35:57 to play in the 40-minute first half, Frost broke through when he was set up by senior Luke Hetterman’s floating pass and beat a defender and then Mannix to make it 1-0. The Bulldogs then came to life and showed how explosive their offense can be. First, Nabi had a shot broken up in the box. Rovnak then had a chance, but tipped a cross just wide. With 31:03 remaining before halftime, Rovnak headed in a pass from Nabi and tied the game. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Portland came right back down and scored again when senior Feliks Cobanovic’s long lead pass found Rovnak’s head and went into the goal. Rovnak beat both a defender and Bangor senior goalkeeper Jesse Perkins and

put his team on top, 2-1. After Mannix maintained the lead by making saves on shots from senior Jack Stacey and Frost, he couldn’t stop a low Frost shot off a pass from senior Jacques Larochelle, which snuck between the goalie and the left post, tying the score, 2-2. The game turned for good with 10:24 left in the half. After a foul just outside the box, Frost took a free kick. He calmly floated a shot into the far corner of the goal. The Rams celebrated, while the Bulldogs argued vehemently that the shot shouldn’t have counted. “I thought (the official’s) arm went straight up indicating an indirect kick,” said Frenzilli, who stressed that the call was not the difference in the contest. “He obviously called it a direct kick and said on the field he called it a direct kick. He said his motion in putting up his arm was weak. We thought we saw it go straight up. It was a great shot and after it went in, that’s what the coaches thought, that it was an indirect kick. “Credit the Frost kid. He danced around us twice and hit a great ball on a free kick. We weren’t able to stop him. He was deserving of the goals he got.” Bangor had a 3-2 lead, Frost had himself a hat trick, but the game was far from over and Portland came very close to pulling even before the end of the entertaining and high scoring first half. With 2:12 remaining, the ball came free in the box and Nabi had a look, but couldn’t make contact. With 1:38 to go, senior Abdulkadir Hassan fed Nabi, whose header forced Perkins to make a diving save, setting up a corner kick. With 24 seconds to go, Nabi’s free kick just outside the box snuck through the defense and left Perkins helpless, but the ball hit the inside of the left post and somehow trickled across the goal line without going in before it was cleared from harm’s way. As a result, the Rams clung to a 3-2 advantage at the break. As expected, the second half was much quieter, although the Bulldogs fought for 40 minutes to pull even. The first chance came with 30:35 to play when Rovnak’s one-on-one rush was broken up at the last moment. With Bangor now playing with a defensive mindset and 14:02 remaining, Nabi knuckled a free kick just wide. With 11:38 showing, Hassan found Nabi in the box, but Nabi couldn’t control the ball to unleash a shot. Four minutes later, a cross from junior Alan Tuyishme was headed out of harm’s way. Junior Brett O’Kelly followed with a long shot that Perkins momentarily bobbled before snaring with Rovnak bearing down. With 5:03 remaining, Nabi got a sliver of room and attempted a turnaround shot, but it went just high. Freshman Tony Yekah followed with a shot that went just wide. A lofting Rovnak bid with 3:25 left went high. A minute later, a Nabi free kick was tipped over the crossbar by Perkins, setting up a corner kick (Portland had an 8-0 advantage for the game) that resulted in nothing. With 1:06 to go, junior Paley Burlin’s attempt was tipped wide by Perkins, setting up another corner. This time, the ball got into the box and for a split second, the Bulldogs and their fans’ eyes got big as Nabi prepared to fire it home, but his blast never got through, instead bouncing off a defender and out. Finally, with three seconds left, a shot

from page 14 back to corral a high bouncing shot that appeared ready to go over his head into the goal. With 3 minutes to play, Waynflete earned a corner kick (it had a 10-3 edge for the game), but the ball was cleared. The Flyers had one last chance as time wound down, but Abdille’s free kick from the side was saved and Haskell ran down most of the remaining seconds before booting the ball away, bringing down the curtain on the Panthers’ stunning 1-0 victory. For the second year in a row, Waynflete’s season ended in surprise and agony on its home turf (last year, the Flyers were eliminated by lower seeded Georges Valley in the quarterfinals). “We talked before the game that it’s all about capitalizing on opportunities and
Deering from page 13 “(Jamie’s) a special player,” said Deering coach Greg Stilphen. “We want the ball in his hands. We look to showcase and maximize his talents. He’s a guy we expect a lot of and he’s delivered. He’s been tremendous for us all season and was again today.” For the eighth time in 10 games, Ross scored three or more touchdowns for the Rams, with his four at Bonny Eagle boosting his season total to 36. The right-handed thrower and powerful runner collected 17 through the air and 19 on the ground this year. His 243 total yards on Saturday tally up to a season total of 2,335 from scrimmage.

kicking in the door,” said Salway. “Their keeper made some big plays and they played well defensively, but I thought we had chances throughout the match. Omar was tremendous today. He played with a
torn meniscus. He gutted it out. We’re disappointed, but I couldn’t be more proud of a group that has been great to coach.” The Flyers go home with a 12-2-2 record and a regional runner-up trophy.
for a dream matchup in the regional final with the unbeaten and top-ranked Cheverus Stags (10-0) at Boulos Field. The Stags had their hands full in the other semifinal game back in Portland, outlasting fifth-ranked Scarborough when a late defensive play led to a score and a 21-14 win. The Stags dismantled the Rams, 44-14, on a nasty day in the Back Bay in the regular season finale. But then again, in Week 3 back on Sept. 16, Bonny Eagle made off with a 34-12 victory at Deering that looked nothing at all like the Rams’ methodical win in the semifinal on Saturday. In no particular rush by any means, Ross was locked in from jump at Bonny Eagle and his steady confidence sent a message to the rest of the Rams. On the game’s fourth play from scrimmage, Ross hit senior Renaldo Lowry for a 67-yard touchdown on a slant and then late in the fourth dropped in a dagger to senior John Hardy on a 4th-
and-12 play with less than two minutes left in the game for a 28-6 lead. The Rams had forced a turnover on downs when Bonny Eagle senior quarterback Matt Rollins twice looked deep down the sideline, but had both attempts knocked down in perfect coverage by the Deering secondary. Senior Trey Thomes was excellent in the defensive backfield all day and Lowry has grown into a key component of the Rams attack on both sides of the ball. Lowry caught his seventh touchdown from Ross on the season and intercepted Rollins back in the second quarter. With four minutes left in the game, Deering took over 1st-and-10 at the 29.

You keep putting yourself in position and eventually it will happen. To win two playoff games and get to the finals is an outstanding achievement. No one picked us a the start of the year. I think this group earned a lot of respect this year. Great group of kids. Fun to coach. Serious group, but able to be pretty loose most of the year.” While graduation, as always, will take its toll, Waynflete will be in the hunt in 2011. “I’m already thinking about next year,” Salway said. “No one will pick us next year after the seniors we lose. I think about the kids we have coming back. Our goal is to win it every single year.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at email@example.com
Ross took his sweet old time in the huddle and behind center as an anxious Bonny Eagle crowd watched the seconds tick away. Ross carried six straight times on the power for 56 yards down to the Scots’ 15 with 2:03 left in the game. The Rams were called for a motion penalty on 4th-and-7 at the 15 and pushed back to the 20. Bonny Eagle called a timeout and when the teams lined back up for the play, Stilphen relayed in an audible from the sideline. Ross took the snap, stood up and angled a perfect ball over the outside shoulder of the Scots’ cornerback and Hardy ran underneath it for a beautiful 20-yard

Frenzilli said. “That’s what you reflect back upon. I told them to go out tonight and play for each other. Fazal’s an amazing athlete and young man. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to get it for him. He’ll get through it and will be fine. It’ll take awhile. As cliche as it is, we’ll reflect on a great season and take pride in what we’ve done.”
from page 16 from sophomore Ralph Houanche sailed high. Bangor had survived, 3-2. “We knew after they got their goal that put them ahead, they’d become tough defensively,” Frenzilli said. “They withdrew players and did exactly what they needed to do to protect the lead. We had a couple good looks and thought we might get one, but we just couldn’t finish. They did a great job down the stretch of bottling everything up, making it tough for us to get through.”
Deering from page 17
A year to remember Portland’s disappointment will ultimately be assuaged by its amazing accomplishments. “I can’t say how proud I am of my team and the effort they put forth,” Frenzilli said. “They never quit. The loss hurts and we’ve been on the good side of it for the three games we played and saw the disappointment on the other teams. You hope for the best, but know only one team will walk out of here. I told the kids to keep their heads up, that they had a wonderful year. You just wish you could take that last step and get them something they worked so hard for.”

Portland’s dynamic senior standout, Fazal Nabi, runs roughshod over a Bangor defender. Despite many attempts, Nabi couldn’t score Saturday and his career came to an end.
Portland will graduate 11 seniors, most notably Nabi, who stands to earn an abundance of postseason accolades. That group helped the Bulldogs not only become a top contender, but come within a goal of making school history. “The seniors accomplished a lot,”

touchdown. Hardy hipped the corner to gain separation and made the catch for a 28-6 lead that would send the Rams off to the next round looking for their first regional title since 2003. “We had a run play called and coach wanted to keep the ball in Jamie’s hands,” said Hardy. “He led the offense and this team the whole day. Luckily he trusted me and switched it up and put the ball in my hands.” Deering would score a touchdown in each quarter to stretch a 7-0 edge after the first to 14-6 at the half and 21-6 after three quarters. In between two scoring strikes through the air, Ross ran in a pair of short touchdowns in goal line situations after the Rams had come up with two of the four turnovers they would cause and recover in the middle quarters. “Everything was just working for us today,” said Ross. “We had a couple of big turnovers and that helped. Even the muddy field worked in our favor. We seemed to get a lot of great bounces punting and it deadened a lot of the kickoffs and kept them inbounds.” The Scots scored to pull within 7-6 on a two-play drive with 9:12 left in the second quarter. Senior Ethan Thorne rushed for 156 yards on 19 carries in the game, including an 18-yard burst on first down and a 34yard touchdown run on the very next play. Deering senior Will Richards bulled in from the middle of the line and blocked the PAT. Richards would later block a punt much in the same fashion, but the Rams would not capitalize on his second huge special teams play. Ross would leave his footprint all over this game, playing a role in all four Deering scores and putting together a clinic in the kicking game. His best play of the game could have been his leaping recovery of a high snap and ensuing 52-yard punt. In the second quarter, Ross boomed a 61-yard
If there’s any consolation in the wake of the loss, it’s that Portland has no shortage of talented underclassmen. After coming so close, the 2011 Bulldogs will be right back in the title hunt. “We’re coming back next year and this will fuel us,” said Frenzilli. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
punt that sailed on the Scots’ return man and was recovered by Mike Marzilli at the Bonny Eagle 17. Just five plays later, Ross would do the honors on a five-yard keeper that he bounced to the sideline and then cut up inside for the score and a 14-6 lead with 5:00 left to play in the first half. “We made a decision to change our offense,” said Stilphen. “Basically, I got tired of playing against nine men in the box. We’re long, lean, fast and strong. We’ve grown as a team and now we’ve earned the right to play again next week. This is when it gets fun. November is when you need to be good.” In the third quarter, Ross once again ran in a score after a huge turnover on Bonny Eagle set the Rams up with a 1st-and-10 at the 22-yard line. Ross carried three times for 13 yards inside the 10-yard line, but a holding penalty moved the Rams back to the 24. This set up a 3rd-and-14 situation and the play of the game from Ross. Rolling to his right, Ross looked over the middle for the tight end but instead pump faked, pulled the ball back in and let go a rocket to the front pylon. Hardy, the second option running the fade pattern, broke for the sideline and tip-toed the boundary while hauling in the catch at the 1. Ross bulled in on first down for a 21-6 Deering lead with 5:49 left in the third quarter. “We lost to Bonny Eagle in Week 3 and sort of used that as our baseline,” said Ross. “Bonny Eagle being the team that they are and the program they are, like every team probably does, we compare ourselves to them. This is a great moment for us. It’s not a championship but it’s where we need to be.” Deering and the Scots have met five times in the playoffs since 2004. The Rams win gives Bonny Eagle a 3-2 edge. Next week, Deering and Cheverus meet in November for the first time. The winner draws either Lewiston or Bangor in the Class A Final Saturday, Nov. 20.

FitforME! awarded grant to fight childhood obesity YARMOUTH — FitforME!, an innovative program designed by Bayview Pediatrics and Riverview Physical Therapy in Yarmouth to treat childhood and adolescent obesity, recently received a $1,200 grant from the Physician Assistant Foundation.
Participation in the FitforME! program is initiated by a referral from a child’s pediatrician. An individualized treatment plan, which includes a nutritional, educational and physical fitness component, is designed by a physician or physician assistant from Bayview Pediatrics and a physical therapist and athletic trainer from Riverview Physical Therapy. “The advantages to our program are the collaborative approach and direct line of communication with the child’s pediatrician,” said Matt Douglas, clinic director at Riverview Physical Therapy. “Also, we perform a complete orthopedic assessment, including screenings for joint mobility, flexibilty, and strength to assess

New Portland clubhouse for Boys & Girls Clubs
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine recently held a grand opening for their newest Clubhouse located at the Sagamore Village public housing development. The Portland Housing Authority and City of Portland’s Housing & Community Development program collaborated to open the new 1,700 square foot Clubhouse to provide after-school and summer educational and recreational programs to area youth ages 5-13 years old. The Clubhouse is located at 21 Popham St. in Portland. Pictured here at the ribbon cutting, from left, are Club member Jhon, Portland Mayor Nick Mavodones, Clifford Ginn, PHA Chair of Commissioners, John Ryan, BGCSM Board Chair, Tiffanie Panagakos, Club Director, and club members Donna and Estella.

the child’s physical condition and ensure safety,” he added. Twelve children so far have completed the FitforME! program, which lasts approximately six to 12 weeks, and includes up to three visits per week. The cost to participate in the program is the same as a regular physical therapy visit, reimbursable through insurance. FitforME! is one of the first programs in Maine to receive a grant for this type of work. A portion of the grant will be used to purchase equipment for kids in the program. “One of our goals is to make this fun for the kids and not feel like a structured exercise regime,” said Douglas. “We’ve gotten positive feedback from parents

Out & About
Symphony plus Sinatra, Hot Club, and more By Scott Andrews There’s a diverse wealth of interesting music coming up over the course of the next week or so. The riches start this Saturday and Sunday when the Portland Symphony Orchestra morphs into Pops mode, and features a guest who performs a Frank Sinatra tribute act. Portland Ovations presents two backto-back performances next week. First up, Nov. 16, is the Hot Club of San Francisco, a “Gypsy jazz” ensemble that’s modeled after the famous Hot Club de France. The next night it’s Kirill Gerstein, a pianist who recently won the Gilmore Artist Award, perhaps the world’s most prestigious and remunerative prize for keyboard virtuosity. Joy Kills Sorrow, a band from Boston that’s gone well beyond its bluegrass roots, plays Nov. 18 in Portland.
Portland Symphony Orchestra An American musical legend is celebrated this weekend as the Portland Symphony Orchestra performs a pair of Pops concerts. The program is titled “Simply Sinatra,” and maestro Robert Moody has invited vocalist Steve Lippia to perform the role of Frank Sinatra. Born in Hoboken, N.J., Sinatra started singing professionally in the 1930s and became a top-rated national star and teen idol with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in the 1940s. As he reached middle age in the 1950s and lost his teenage followers, he reignited his career with more adult material and kept singing through the early 1990s, when he finally retired. Lippia’s tribute act flows from his love of the style of Sinatra and his many timeless hit tunes, such as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Cheek To Cheek” and “My Way.” Lippia loves the “comfort zone” that seems to engulf the music of this era, and he’s especially concerned with conveying the spirit of the lyrics.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/73426
Lippia’s high-impact, high-energy show ranges from powerful to subtle, sassy to wistful and elegant to sublime. Lippia has headlined to standing-roomonly crowds at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club in New York City, backed by the Nelson Riddle and Woody Herman Orchestras. And like Sinatra, he’s enjoyed long-running gigs at several Las Vegas venues. The show isn’t totally Sinatra; Lippia also performs tunes made popular by Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis Jr. Portland Symphony Orchestra performs “Simply Sinatra” twice this weekend: at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 14. Call PortTix at 842-0800.
Hot Club of San Francisco Another retrospective act comes to the Port City two days later, as Portland Ovations hosts the Hot Club of San Francisco on Nov. 16. HCSF plays “Gypsy jazz,” a format using three guitars, a violin and a bass that was created in the 1930s by two Frenchmen: Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Reinhardt, who was born 100 years ago, grew up in a Gypsy community near Paris, fell under the influence of American jazz artists and their recordings in the 1920s. A guitarist himself, Reinhardt adopted and adapted the musical vocabulary of big bands of the time into small, all-strings stylings that often alternate between flamboyant and melancholy. With Grappelli, a violinist, he formed the Hot Club de France, a Paris-based quintet that quickly attracted the attention of American jazz musicians, such as Louis Armstrong, Coleman Hawkins and Benny Carter. Decades later, Reinhardt collaborated with Dizzy Gillespie.

The Hot Club of San Francisco, which visits Portland Nov. 16, is famous for playing “Gypsy jazz” in the style of Django Reinhart, Stephane Grappelli and the Hot Club de France.
The Hot Club of San Francisco was created by Paul Mehling, a California guitarist who became immersed in the sounds of mid-20th century jazz as he grew up listening to his father’s huge record collection. As a professional musician, Mehling found to his delight that today’s audiences are ready for a revival of the Reinhardt-Grappelli five-instrument Gypsy jazz format. Mehling’s success has inspired imitations all over the world, including a Hot Club of New York and a Hot Club of Norway. For next Tuesday’s performance, the ensemble will play accompaniment to several silent films in a program titled “Silent Surrealism.” Portland Ovations presents the Hot Club of San Francisco at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at Hannaford Hall in the Abromson Community Education Center at 88 Bedford St. on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

In her first few years at the helm of Portland Ovations, Executive Director Aimee Petrin has established a policy of engaging recent winners of the Gilmore Artist Prize, a $300,000 stipend that is awarded every four years to an unsuspecting pianist by an anonymous panel of judges. Because of the extreme secrecy behind the selection process, the Gilmore is sometimes referred to as the “stealth award.” Previously, Portland Ovations has present Gilmore winners Ingrid Fliter, Leif Ove Andsnes and Piotr Anderszewski.

January, Petrin hired the 2010 honoree, Russian-born pianist Kirill Gerstein. A child prodigy who was raised in Russia and started playing jazz as a 10-year-old, Gerstein came to the U.S. at age 14 to study jazz in Boston – the youngest college student in the history of the Berklee School. He switched to classical a year later, after burning out on jazz. Becoming an American citizen in 2003, Gerstein still lives near Boston and teaches piano at the New England Conservatory. He also holds a similar professorship at a major German music academy. In addition to solo piano recitals, Gerstein has played with many of the world’s top orchestras and conductors. Gerstein’s Nov. 17 program will include works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Carl Czerny and Franz Liszt. Portland Ovations presents Kirill Gerstein at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.
Joy Kills Sorrow
Another act from Boston visits Portland the following night. Joy Kills Sorrow is a band that’s rooted in bluegrass but has embraced other acoustic styles. Formed under the banner “a modern American string band,” Joy Kills Sorrow emerged from Boston’s fertile folk music scene in 2005, releasing an eponymous debut album in 2007. Founding member Matthew Arcara, a subtle and expressive guitarist, was the 2006 winner of Winfield’s National Flatpicking Championship. The band’s most recent addition, mandolinist Jacob Jolliff, is the Berklee School’s first fullscholarship mandolin student. The band boasts a large repertoire of original songs, most penned by bassist Bridget Kearney, winner of the 2006 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Singer Emma Beaton, the 2008 Canadian Folk Music Awards’ Young Performer of the Year, adds an earthy, powerful presence. Joy Kills Sorrow plays at 8 p.m. Nov. 18 at One Longfellow Square (corner of State and Congress) in Portland. Call 761-1757.

Cape Elizabeth from page 1 urging CMP to allow customers to opt out of the installations. Councilor Penny Jordan said residents should have a choice about what happens to their homes, and Councilor Frank Governali said the most important aspect of the resolution is the privacy issue. “We certainly can voice our concern about how it relates to our own private property,” he said. Resident Ange Foley spoke to the council in support of the resolution. She said health, safety and privacy
concerns have not been made clear by CMP. Resident Sara Merrill said she had her smart meter removed after calling CMP because she wanted more information about the technology. “There are too many unknowns,” Merrill said. “We don’t have all the numbers. We need to be better informed.” Scarborough resident Elisa Boxer-Cook, leader of a group of residents who challenged CMP’s installation of smart meters to the PUC, read a letter to the council from a Cape resident and pediatrician, Dr. Karen K. Emery of Maine Health Pediatrics in Falmouth, who couldn’t attend the meeting, but urged the council to

pass the resolution. Emery’s letter said it was wise to err on the side of caution with high-frequency wireless technology that adds new exposure without first conducting thorough research. “I don’t believe we should install smart meters and wait for the science to conclusively show no risk, because by then it will be too late,” she said. “As part of Maine’s medical community, treating our most vulnerable population, I believe we need to halt instillation long enough to hold community-wide and statewide meetings discussing both sides of the science, not simply presenting CMP’s hired experts showing no cause for concern.” At the very least, Emery said, “we should have a choice.” CMP spokesman John Carroll attended the meeting and told councilors while he is not a health expert and could not speak to the concerns of the residents, the meters are a necessary upgrade from the existing technology. He said customers could save money by monitoring their electricity usage, and CMP is becoming more green and saving time and money by eliminating the need for someone to drive to around and read meters. He said the council was voting on devices that are already in use in schools, public safety buildings, Town Hall and public buildings. “Before you act,” Carroll said, “ask if you have done the due diligence yourselves like we have.” Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or email@example.com

Smart meters from page 1 Complaint is not a complaint against the installation of new Smart Meters, but rather is a complaint as to a utility’s underlying right to replace meters or perform any type of disconnection.” It goes on to explain that the complainants cite disruption of electrical wires as the reason for the alleged fire hazards. CMP asserts that the complainants are arguing that the company should not be able to disconnect a customer under any circumstance, something that it says it is allowed to do by law. In a letter sent to the PUC on Nov. 5, Hill addressed CMP’s argument: “None of the complainants contested the right of CMP to replace meters in homes with older wiring.” Hill explained that it was the combination of a potential fire hazard and advertisements by the meter installation company, VSI, that it would hire installation technicians without experience or electricians’ licenses, that were the origins of the complaint. She asked that the PUC determine how VSI’s employees would be trained before allowing CMP to
continue the installation process. “I would like to see CMP have a published and clear policy on their procedures for dealing with old wiring and smart meter installations and have that sent to homeowners in advance, alerting them to the potential expense and problem,” Hill said. She added that she volunteers with the elderly and worries that older customers might not be able to afford to replace wiring in their homes, leaving them without electricity during the winter. In its response, CMP stated that, prior to the smart meter project, the company conducted more than 17,000 regular meter installations per year. “The approach that the Company is taking in deployment of Smart Meters is consistent with its policy for all other meter installations,” the letter stated. The meters, which communicate wirelessly with each other, then broadcast signals sent by antennas and repeaters to CMP’s Augusta office, have already been installed on more than 70,000 homes in the greater Portland area. CMP plans to install meters on all 620,000 homes in its service area by 2012.
Health, security concerns CMP has requested an extension

until Nov. 18 on the second PUC complaint, filed by Elisa Boxer-Cook of Scarborough, who cited radiation-related health concerns and cyber security as the reasons for the complaint. CMP’s letter, dated Nov. 3, indicated Boxer-Cook had no opposition to the extension. The letter also made a formal “general denial” of Boxer-Cook’s allegations, but did not provide a detailed argument. The Maine Center for Disease Control this week provided CMP with some support. On Nov. 8 it released a summary of its findings on the meters, stating that “studies to date give no consistent or convincing evidence of a causal relation between (radio frequency) exposure in the range of frequencies and power used by smart meters and adverse health effects.” The CDC compared smart meters to cell phones, calling the radiation from phones much greater than the meters, and cited a May 2010 study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology that found no link between cell phone use and two of the most common types of brain cancer. Both PUC complaints asked CMP to

offer customers the ability to opt out of the smart meter service, something the company has said it will not be able to offer because of the software and infrastructure required. “If given the option I would opt-out of receiving a smart meter, especially since the meter I have isn’t broken and works just fine,” Hill said. “Just because something isn’t the latest doesn’t mean it’s not the smartest option.” Dr. Amy Kustra Barksdale of the Portland Community Health Center and Scarborough’s local health official, Dr. Stephen Kirsch of Scarborough Family Physicians, both provided letters of support to Boxer-Cook’s complaint and asked that people be given the right to opt out of the service. They said people who may have medically documented electromagnetic hypersensitivity or devices such as pacemakers could be affected by the wireless radiation. But the CDC’s review cited unnamed double-blind laboratory studies that found those diagnosed with electromagnetic hypersensitivity could not document exposure any more accurately than those
