City pitches proposal to build technology park

Nathan Sanborn, 35, stands among the kettles and fermenters at Rising Tide Brewing Co., located on Industrial Way in Portland.

Malt of the Earth Rising Tide Brewery seeks niche in microbrew market By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Far from the ocean, in a modest warehouse on Industrial Way, there is a new tide rising, one that Nathan Sanborn hopes will eventually envelop the entire state and beyond. Sanborn, a 35-year-old

former freelance graphic designer, is trying to establish one of Maine’s newest microbreweries, a one-man operation called Rising Tide Brewing Co. Sanborn has been a home brewer for nearly 15 years, beginning as a 21-year-old,

self-proclaimed ski bum in California. But in April, he signed a lease for a warehouse space in Portland, making his home hobby a commercial enterprise. “The set-up isn’t that See page 27

By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The city Economic Development Division is proposing to build a technology park on a city-owned plot on Westbrook Street. It would be the first municipal business park in the city. “This is the first undertaking the city has ever been involved in for the city to establish a business park,” Economic Development Director Greg Mitchell said. The project would be built on 26 acres of city-owned land and unfold in three phases, according to planning documents. The city would build the first two phases, resulting in 1,400-linear feet of roadway, complete with utilities and stormwater systems. Mitchell said the city currently has nearly $1.3 million to complete the first 950 feet of roadway. Funding is being split between $660,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration and $660,000 in local funds, he said. The development calls for seven buildings, ranging from 8,000-square feet to nearly 45,000-square feet, each of which would be financed by private

developers. Each proposed building would need to receive site plan approval from the Planning Board, which has scheduled a Nov. 23 workshop on the plan. Since the city is investing in the infrastructure, the buildings would likely have to obtain a silver certification from U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental & Energy Design. Last year, the City Council adopted an ordinance requiring such certification on projects that receive $10,000 or more in city funding. Mitchell said the city is currently marketing the business park to small- to medium-sized biotechnology and information technology businesses, sectors that do not currently have a campus in the region. “Up to this point in Portland’s evolution, the industrial development primarily on Riverside Street has been largely led by the private sectors,” he said. “We felt the need to establish this business park to really focus on attracting bio-science type businesses.” Mitchell said there is currently “one very serious prospect” for See page 33

Gun advocates brush off City Council resolution By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The City Council on Monday passed a resolution calling on the state Legislature to change the law and allow municipalities to prohibit people from openly carrying firearms in public areas and buildings. Gun rights advocates, however, scoffed at the council’s 6-1 decision after the meeting, saying they were confident the newly elected Republican Legislature and governor would block any efforts to restrict gun rights. “There’s really no concern about this

going anywhere in Augusta,” Shane Bellanger, founder of the Maine Open Carry Association, said. The resolution was brought forward by Councilor Dan Skolnik, who leads the Public Safety Committee. State law currently allows people to openly carry loaded firearms in public. But the resolution calls on the Legislature to allow towns and cities to enact their own gun control laws. Supporters of the resolution included Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence, who said openly carrying guns in

public is an issue of public safety and local control. “I for one don’t want amateur vigilantes taking guns into those (public) spaces,” said MCAHV President Tom Franklin. Gun advocates, however, argued their right to carry was protected by the Constitution and that the presence of handguns actually makes the community safer, especially when crimes and shootings are in progress.

3 write-ins win seats on Peaks Island Council address as well as fill in the oval. There were about 130 write-in votes from Peaks Island, Cohen said. Now that three more councilors have been elected, they are under pressure to be sworn in and hold a meeting before Dec. 1, when the resignation of the last sitting councilor, Marjorie Phyfe, takes effect. Cohen said the group hopes to appoint at least one new member to the council before Phyfe finishes. “That’s the only way they’re going to be able to do it,” she said. “If they don’t have that fourth person, they won’t have a quorum.” When reached on Monday, Eaton, a 41-year-old graphic designer, said he was surprised to get four votes on Election Day. “I put the message out there, but only

to a very small group of people,” Eaton said. “I was actually surprised I got four (votes), rather than three.” Eaton said the group will likely be sworn in and meet the last week of the month. The group has been contacting potential candidates, Eaton said, but have yet to get a commitment from anyone. “It’s up in the air right now,” Eaton said. “But we still have a couple weeks.” The PIC is a seven-member elected board charged with being the “voice” of islanders, working closely with Portland city officials and city councilors to address the needs of island residents.

Affordable housing proposed for building on High Street By Marian McCue PORTLAND — A plan to create 35 units of affordable housing in a building near the corner of High and Danforth streets will be considered by the Planning Board at its workshop Nov. 23. A partnership led by Community Housing of Maine, (CHOM), has proposed renovating 68 High Street and

summer, saying it has not worked out that way, and they are frustrated by the lack of progress made on issues brought to the city’s attention. If the group maintains a quorum, Eaton said the council will then look for three additional members. Eaton said he decided to offer his name as a write-in candidate as a way to keep the council alive and “nurse it along for a while,” in case political conditions change and islanders decide they want to run again. “I really didn’t want it to see it die,” he said.

By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The adage that every vote counts has never rung more true than in this last election cycle on Peaks Island. The existence of the Peaks Island Council was apparently doomed when four sitting councilors abruptly resigned last summer and there were no declared candidates for three open seats on the Nov. 2 ballot. But three councilors were nonetheless elected earlier this month and have all agreed to serve. City Clerk Linda Cohen said Brackett Avenue resident Eric Eaton received four votes, Sargent Road resident Lawrence Foster and Braebrook Road resident Sid Gerard each received three votes. Since there were no declared write-in candidates, Cohen said that voters needed to write their candidate’s full name and

LearningWorks students build bog walk By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — Late Friday morning, the sounds of hammers and drills rose softly from a soggy piece of land behind a playground on Wescott Road. The sounds represented the construction of a bog walk, the final phase of an outdoor learning area at Skillin Elementary School that has been five years in the making. “It’s great project,” said Conrad Cyr, a carpenter volunteering his time on the project. “This will get (students) out of the classroom so they can enjoy nature.” When finished, the work will provide elementary students with a bridge to enjoy and learn from an on-site wetland. That bridge also symbolizes an effort by students who have either dropped out of school or are on criminal probation to re-enter the educational system and earn their Graduate Equivalency Diploma while gaining valuable workplace skills. On Friday, Nov. 12, Cyr was helping a handful of students from LearningWorks, a Portland nonprofit that works with atrisk youth. Students, whose ages range from 1624, were sloshing around the small bog in an effort to assemble pieces of the bog walk they put together off-site. Dave Connor is a vocational teacher for

Youth Build Alternatives, the LearningWork’s program that allows students to earn a GED while also learning a trade. Connor said there are about 40 students who rotate through the four-week program, which also uses student labor to renovate rental properties owned by the nonprofit group. “It’s unique,” Connor said of the YBA program, which unlike Portland Adult Education, is free. “This is a free opportunity. And whether kids take advantage of it or not is their decision.” The 160-foot bog walk will also contain three observation decks for students to study the plant and wildlife in the bog, which also has a small walking trail around the edge. The bog walk is the remaining piece of the project that also includes an outdoor classroom with granite benches and a butterfly garden containing 40 types of trees and shrubs. South Portland student Matt Tracy on Friday was busy carrying planks of wood from a nearby van to what will eventually become one of the observation decks. In between trips, Tracy gave his supervisors a hard time about pair of boots they loaned him. “They have holes in them,” Tracy ex-

Driving for the holidays: Food, toy drives benefit local non-profits By Stephanie Grinnell BRUNSWICK — Downeast Energy is doing a lot of driving this holiday season: food and toy driving, that is. The propane and heating oil company is participating in two campaigns this year — a toy drive to benefit children serviced by the behavioral health organization, Sweetser, of Saco, and a food drive sponsored by South Portland radio station WYNZ to benefit Preble Street Resource Center in Portland.

Betsy Morrell of Downeast Energy said the company participates in many fundraisers and recently completed another food drive to benefit Midcoast Hunger Prevention based in Brunswick. She said the Sweetser and Preble Street causes “spoke to us.” She said that the company has participated in the Sweetser toy drive for at least nine years and that the program actively solicits gifts for teenagers, such as gift cards, electronics, calling cards and

clothing, where many other toy drives focus on younger children. “Often teenagers get left out,” she said. Downeast Energy has collection boxes in its offices located in Brunswick, Kennebunk, Lisbon Falls, York, Waterville, Hallowell, Mt. Vernon, South Portland, Windham, Biddeford, Yarmouth and Springvale. Unwrapped gifts for children ages 6 through 18 will be accepted from Nov. 19 to Dec. 10. Morrell said the company became

involved in the food drive called “Stuff A Big Bus Food Drive” as a corporate sponsor years ago. She said Preble Street meets “a lot of different needs,” including those of the chronically and sporadically homeless. “It’s a great way to leverage the dollars that we give,” she said. Preble Street Development Manager Melanie McKean said the “Stuff the Bus” campaign is the largest of the year for the organization, collecting about three months worth of food. “I don’t know what we would do without it,” McKean said. Each day, Preble Street serves about 1,100 meals in the soup kitchen, she said. Additional people receive assistance from the weekly food pantry. It takes about 500 volunteers per week in the soup kitchen, McKean said, adding there is always a need for additional volunteers. She said there are businesses that donate employee volunteers to help out, but this year, Preble Street’s volunteers have been responsible for all three meals served in the soup kitchen. In past years, only breakfast fell to Preble Street to provide. While the food drive helps feed people through the holidays, McKean said there is a need year-round for food and cash donations as well as volunteers. “Come January, March and July, we will still need the same amount of food and volunteers,” she said. During the past two years, Preble Street has seen a 30 percent increase in need for its services, McKean said. The soup kitchen and food pantry aren’t serving only homeless people, she said, as there has been an increase in recent years of working people who cannot afford to

City Council loosens peninsula parking program, lowers fee By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The City Council on Monday unanimously approved changes to a program designed to discourage the construction of parking lots on the peninsula in favor of more dense developments. Changes to the program include lowering the per-space fee from $10,000 to $5,000 and allowing developers the option of leasing parking spaces for a period of five years from a local parking garage or lot instead of paying the fee. “The new version is a little more flexible and will be more successful,” said Councilor Kevin Donoghue, who leads the Transportation Committee. The original program, known as the “Fee in Lieu of Parking” program, allowed developers to pay the city $10,000 for each parking space that is required by ordinance, but is not built. In approving the changes, councilors said they had heard from local developers, who argued that the fee was too

high to be effective and program lacked flexibility. The $5,000 per space fee was recommended to give parity in the ordinance, Donoghue said, since it is similar to the cost of leasing a parking space for five years in a garage. The council also set a maximum distance those off-site parking spaces could be from the development. Instead of simply saying that distance must be “reasonable,” the council defined that distance as 1,500 feet. That amendment was offered by Councilor John Anton, who also convinced his peers to require developers to pay the parking fee through bonds early in the development, rather than when occupancy

permits are issued. Chris O’Neil spoke in support the changes on behalf of the Portland Community Chamber, which he said had received a lot of “flack and static” from the development community about the

Sleighbells ring I heard the bells on Christmas day. OK, so it wasn’t exactly Christmas day. It was more like mid-October. I thought perhaps I had developed tinnitus (ringing in the ears), but no, indeed, there No Sugar were bells. Silver bells. The kind Rudolph wears. I had ventured into Home Goods to procure Halloween candles. And possibly a new spider decoration or two. But what to my wondering eyes should appear but aisles overflowing with Santa figurines and snowmen and tinsel and dishtowels embroidered with gingerbread men. What had happened to Halloween? Had I somehow missed it? Had I fallen into a Sandi Amorello time travel tunnel on my last date and been transported to an alternate universe? Then I saw it. Much like a withering floral centerpiece taking up prime space at the dinner table, Halloween had been demoted. Moved to a lesser location, where it could bide its time while quietly awaiting a trip to the dumpster. It irritated me to think that one of my favorite holidays

had yet to occur and was already on its way to the crematorium. Why was Christmas already stealing the spotlight? Shortly thereafter, I found myself walking into Macy’s while chatting busily with my teenage daughter, Ophelia. Ophelia is a creative, intelligent and sensitive child. As we entered the store, I blurted out a fabulous idea: “In a couple of weeks, let’s put aside a whole day and do some early Christmas shopping!” Ophelia looked me square in my maternal eyes and said, “Why wait? We could do it right now.” I did not give birth to Ophelia yesterday. And I know when sarcasm is dripping from the corners of her artfully glossed lips. In that instant, I noticed that Macy’s was already decked out in full Christmas regalia. Bells were ringing and the scent of men’s cologne carried a hint of balsam fir. The entire scene filled me with dismay and my faith in humankind was once again diminished. I love Christmas. Even after having had a husband die the morning after the joyous holiday, I still love Christmas. I love the sights, sounds, scents and intensified feelings of love and goodwill that permeate the month of December. But I don’t love the fact that red and green M&Ms are thrust upon us before the candy corn is barely off the shelves at CVS. This phenomenon is not just limited to Christmas. As many of you have noticed, Easter now begins sometime

As I write this column, the Deering High School Rams are preparing to compete in the Western Maine Class A football finals. The Portland High School boys’ soccer team has just completed an exciting season that brought the Bulldogs all the way to the state championship. Whether our students play sports, perform on stage or volunteer their time on community projects, their lives are richer for participating in athletics and other extracurricular activities. They learn to cooperate with classmates. They explore interests, take on new responsibilities, tap into their creativity and see how their volunteer efforts can make a difference to others. A report recently commissioned by the Portland School Committee underscores the importance of our district’s extracurricular programs to students, parents and community members. National research shows that participating in such activities helps students boost their grades, improve their self-esteem and get into college. But our district faces big challenges paying for the programs in the years ahead, as we grapple with anticipated cuts in state and federal funding. The report by the Red & Blue Foundation of Massachusetts identifies ways for our district to make these programs (referred to as “co-curricular” activities) as cost effective as possible. The report calls for coordinating activities at the district level, improving record-keeping and oversight and

seeking new funding sources. Some recommendations are bound to ruffle feathers, because they would change the way that booster clubs and Superintendent’s other organizations operate. I hope you will consider the changes with an open mind. We owe it to our students to stretch our limited resources as far as possible so that more young people can participate in co-curricular activities. The Red & Blue Foundation did its homework on this report. The foundation’s staff interviewed 65 Portland students, parents, coaches, teachers, administrators and James C. Morse Sr. city officials as well as representatives of local colleges, universities, businesses and other organizations. The foundation also collected surveys and gathered financial data about the district’s programs. The full report is posted on the district’s website www. portlandschools.org. Major proposals include: • Establishing a nonprofit foundation to generate support

around Valentine’s Day, which begins before the last of the Rudolph Pez dispensers have been put on the discount shelf at Target. Charles (or was it Harold?) asked me recently when it was that everything got decorated for Christmas when I was a kid. I told him I didn’t recall it truly arriving until Thanksgiving was over. Anticipation filled the air. At the risk of sounding like a dinosaur, I will tell you that I remember scouring the TV guide, anxious to find out when our beloved animated Christmas shows would be airing. And even though we can now, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, watch “A Charlie Brown Christmas” 365 days a year, my 43-year-old brother still calls, his voice overflowing with excitement as he shrieks: “Turn on the TV – it’s on at eight!” I know Christmas doesn’t come from a box. As The Grinch pointed out, it comes from the heart. But seeing so much holiday spirit spread out everywhere for 8 to 10 weeks before the fact takes something away from the magic. Our society seems to put a value on rushing to the next thing before we’ve even enjoyed what’s in front of us. Ultimately, death is what’s at the end of this trip. Which begs the question, “Why are we in such a hurry?” Children grow up, people age, loved ones leave us. And along the way, we get to be part of this miracle we call life. I don’t want to hear Christmas bells in mid-October. And I don’t think we should have to. So I implore those of you trying to retain the magic of the holiday season, for your families, your children and yourselves: Stock up on earplugs. And enjoy every moment, in your own sweet time.

Defending Maine’s mountains against wind power The Forecaster has done an excellent job regularly informing its readers about the wind power debate in Maine. I stand proudly with the courageous Mainers who have been stepping forward to stop the destructive industrialization of Maine’s mountains by out of state companies. Without massive taxpayer subsidies, First Wind of Massachusetts and TransCanada to the north, would not be devastating Maine’s precious mountain tops and ridge lines. These taxpayer-subsidized corporations are first and foremost out to get millions of our federal tax dollars. They are tearing apart Maine’s fragile mountain ecology with false promises driven by greed. Maine is not South Dakota or the Texas plains where the wind blows hard and strong much of the time. Industrial wind is absolutely wrong for our mountains and is the wrong clean energy choice for Maine. Much of our housing stock is poorly insulated and as a result, a community based, state-wide energy efficiency project would be the very best and most cost effective way for Maine to significantly reduce its consumption of fossil fuels. We can insulate every home and business in Maine, while creating thousands of jobs, and for a much lower cost than taxpayer subsidized industrial wind. We can then avoid the terrible environmental cost of tearing up our mountains with an unneccasary and destructive industrial wind scheme. Every citizen who treasures our beautiful mountain landscape should speak up against this taxpayer-subsidized, corporate assault. Together, we can stop it. We must not devastate Maine’s mountains or any other special place in order to save it. If Mainers allow this corporate assault on our mountains to continue, we will be filled with regret for what we have lost. We must stop industrial wind right now, invest instead in an effective energy efficiency campaign and preserve the Maine we love. Robert Goldman South Portland

Mainers immune to hardcore tea party hysteria Let’s recap, shall we? Eight years of Neo-Con Republican leadership in Washington created a huge national deficit, embroiled the U.S. in two endless wars, and enabled credit and investment excesses that nearly destroyed the world economy. In 2008, therefore, Americans elected the progressive Barack Obama in hopes of turning the country around. By 2010, Obama had managed to do exactly what he was elected to do — save the United States from economic collapse, in the process creating a The Universal million new jobs, reducing taxes for 95 percent of Americans, reforming financial markets to avert the excessive greed of the past, and passing sweeping health care reform that protects the average American family from the predatory practices of the insurance industry. All of this without any help from the GOP Party of No, Edgar Allen Beem which was then and is now devoted entirely to making sure that Obama is defeated in 2012. Nothing else matters to them, certainly not the welfare of the American people. Despite (and in part because of) Obama’s successes, Corporate America, aided and abetted by conservative activist justices on the Supreme Court, began spending vast sums of money to convince frightened and weak-minded Americans that President Obama was some sort of radical socialist Muslim monster. A lot of misguided people came to believe this nonsense and the tea party arose as the tool of the rich in the guise of a populist uprising. “A loose definition of the Tea Party,” wrote Matt Taibbi in the October 5 issue of Rolling Stone, “might be millions of pissed-off white people sent chasing after Mexicans on Medicaid by the handful of banks and investment firms who advertise on Fox and CNBC.” Obama’s bad fortunes seemed to turn on health care reform. He lost the enthusiasm of many who helped elect him by not fighting for a public option and he infuriated conservatives with an ill-advised provision

to penalize (tax) people who did not purchase health insurance. Other than that, Obamacare is pretty much what Republicans are now proposing. So on November 2 we witnessed the predictable reactionary tidal wave of an off-year election as people voted with their emotions rather than their heads. Tea party Republicans swept a lot of deficit hawks into office, though the most obvious tea party nut cases lost big in New York, Nevada, and Delaware. For the time being, however, we have turned Congress back over to people who primarily represent the interests of corporations. In commonsensical Maine, we also saw control of state government turned over to the GOP, yet we were relatively immune to the hardcore hysteria of the far right. Our incumbent Democratic congressional representatives, one a very progressive liberal, the other a Blue Dog moderate, were re-elected by wide margins over a couple of conservative challengers who had little to offer other than their anger. We also narrowly elected a conservative Republican governor, one who likely could not survive a run-off election against the second-place Independent. Since the vast majority of voters supported someone other than the winner, the idea that the governor-elect has any kind of popular mandate is bogus. Still, a win is a win, so if the new Republican governor and his newly empowered conservative confreres in the Legislature can deliver on their promise to reduce government spending without sacrificing essential services, more power to them. Since he has never offered any specifics about how he might accomplish this, it’s doubtful he can. In his Rolling Stone article, Matt Taibbi observed that, “The average Tea Partier is sincerely against government spending — with the exception of the money spent on them.” If you want to see a real populist uprising, wait until LePage Surplus & Salvage tries to cut funding for educational, cultural and social programs, gut environmental regulations, and turn Maine over to private business interests. All those tea partiers receiving public pensions, VA benefits, unemployment benefits, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and MaineCare will be marching on Augusta right along with the majority of Mainers who care more about the common good than about personal gain.

Register of Historic Places. It was designed by architect Frederick A. Tompson and built in 1909, and is described as an important example of Colonial Revival architecture. The project will have to be reviewed by the city’s Historic Preservation Commission. In the application materials, the developer points out that the project is consistent with the city’s comprehensive plan, which calls for increased density of housing development in the areas of the city near schools and public transportation. The proposed project calls for 20 one-

bedroom units, 12 two-bedroom units and three three-bedroom units. The developers, organized into a limited partnership called Children’s Hospital Housing Partners, are seeking a waiver from the city’s strict tree planting requirements. The city’s rules call for one tree to be planted for every unit of housing built, and the developers argue it would be difficult to site 35 trees on the lot where much of the space will be taken up by the new building. The developers also requested that the city reduce the amount of the contribution that the ordinances require in lieu of planting trees.

Cheverus edges Deering in epic regional final By Tom Minervino PORTLAND—This one will be talked about for a while. Cheverus, after squandering a 23-point first-half lead, scored the go-ahead touchdown with 30 seconds left and captured its first Western Maine football championship in 25 years Saturday with a 35-34 win over Deering, as the Rams’ potential game-winning field goal attempt sailed just wide in the final seconds. The top-seeded Stags (11-0) move on to face Bangor (10-1) for the Class A state title next Saturday at Fitzpatrick Stadium. The teams have no playoff history. Cheverus won its one and only state championship in 1985, trouncing Lewiston, 65-13. A year ago, the Stags fell in the Western Maine championship to Windham, 7-6, the eventual state champion. No. 3 Deering wraps up the year at 8-3. It was a wild and hard-fought game that featured turnovers galore, numerous big plays, and a bit of controversy. And it wasn’t over until Deering senior standout Jamie Ross’ 36yard field goal attempt went just wide to the left, leaving less than a second on the clock, which the

Stags ran out by taking a knee. “That was a great football game,” said Deering coach Greg Stilphen. “I can’t say enough about my players, the way Cheverus played, the way we played. You can’t ask more than that. I’m proud of my players and what they did handling adversity. Earlier on, we would have just crumbled.” To set up the field goal try, Ross connected with junior Renaldo Lowry for a 43-yard completion on third down, bringing the Rams

down to the Cheverus 19 with 6.9 seconds left. Deering had taken over at its own 38 with 25 seconds remaining in the game. The play before Lowry’s catch, Ross barely overshot senior John Hardy — who had the defense beat — on a deep pass as the estimated 4,000plus fans gathered on the Boulos Stadium hillside held their collective breath. Deering scored two touchdowns in 68 seconds to take a 34-29 lead with 7:38 left in the game, but Cheverus answered with a season-

This one was memorable, even if you weren’t there By Michael Hoffer Ten miles away, at Yarmouth High School, site of the Western C Final, the updates came fast and furious. Deering 6 Cheverus 0. Seemingly seconds later: Cheverus 7 Deering 6. Cheverus 14 Deering 6. Cheverus 20 Deering 6, make that, 22-6. Cheverus 29 Deering 6. At that point, it appeared the Stags were going to pummel the visiting Rams as they did in the regular season finale, 44-14, on Oct. 23. Even when Deering scored a TD late in the first half to make it 29-12, there weren’t many outside of those bleeding purple and white who thought Cheverus and legendary coach John Wolfgram would blow a 23-point lead at home in a regional final. But they would. As the Clippers were beginning a comeback in Yarmouth, the texts increased in intensity and improbability.

Cheverus 29 Deering 20 Cheverus 29 Deering 27 Deering 34 Cheverus 29 This in just a matter of minutes. In a sense, the game was a microcosm of the teams’ seasons. Coming into 2010, Deering got virtually no respect or love, save our fall preview (“If Deering stays healthy and gets some early confidence, look out. The 2010 campaign could easily wind up looking a lot more like 2008, 8-0 regular season, than 2009, 2-6), but behind the wizardry of senior standout quarterback Jamie Ross, rose to the occasion time and again, winning six of eight contests to earn the No. 3 seed. After drubbing No. 6 Thornton Academy in the quarterfinals, then upsetting No. 2 Bonny Eagle behind an overwhelming defensive performance in the semis, many still thought the Rams would fall again to their city rival. Cheverus, a regional finalist in 2009, rolled through the early part of its schedule, then

passed stern tests from Portland and Bonny Eagle to finish undefeated. The Stags received mighty scares from Windham and Scarborough in their first two playoff games, but found a way to survive and advance. It happened once more Saturday. Barely. Just moments before Yarmouth took the lead in its game, word came that with a mere 30 seconds to play, Cheverus had gone ahead of Deering, 35-34, but had failed the two-point conversion. The first thought going through the mind of this reporter, however, was that too much time remained for Ross to weave his magic. And he almost stole the show. Sure enough, the call came that the Rams had driven and were setting up for a potential winning field goal. “I’ll get right back to you,” said the voice on the phone. continued page 15

saving 80-yard scoring drive that lasted over seven minutes and required 16 plays. Senior quarterback Peter Gwilym got the bulk of the carries on the drive, but also sprinkled in some timely throws, hitting junior Louis DiStasio for a 19-yard gain and finding senior Jack Bushey for seven, which set up Evan Jendrasko’s 1-yard touchdown plow to put Cheverus back on top for good with 30 seconds left. The two-point try failed. “The last drive felt incredible,” said Jendrasko. “It was probably the most nerve-wracking and tense moment I’ve ever been a part of in my life. I’m just grateful we were able to pull it out and go all the way, which has been our goal since August.” It was Jendrasko’s second TD of the game. He finished with 52 yards on 18 carries, but also had a pair of fumbles that the Rams recovered. “I had to redeem myself,” he said. “I had two fumbles. I thought I played a horrible game. I got the ball and had to help my team anyway I could.” Earlier in the series, Gwilym appeared to score on a Michael Vick-esque run, but had the touchdown negated by a holding penalty near the end of the play. From the Deering 38, Gwilym rolled out to the right. Under pressure from the Deering defense and with the sideline fast approaching, Gwilym looked to have two choices: get sacked or throw the ball away. He chose neither, instead finding a slim seam along the sideline to escape the chasing defenders, then cutting back completely across the field, spinning and shedding would-be tacklers until he reached the goal line. The penalty brought the ball back to the Deering 23. “Peter — all game, every game he plays in — does a phenomenal job,” Jendrasko said. “He’s a

workhorse. He’s an animal. He’ll look like he’s got nothing left, but he still has so much to give to this team. He’s a real leader.” Deering, which lost to Cheverus 44-14, when the teams met in the regular season finale, trailed 2912 at halftime, but struck first in the second half. The Rams forced the Stags to punt on their first two possessions of the third quarter and took over at the Cheverus 41 after the second one. Six plays later, Ross ran in from 5 yards out, then hit Hardy for a two-point conversion to make it 29-20 with 3:06 left in the third. Ross finished with 93 yards on 18 carries, including two touchdowns. He also was 26-for-50 passing for 372 yards, with three touchdowns and three interceptions. Cheverus fumbled on its next play, with Deering senior John Miranda recovering at the Cheverus 27. Two runs by Ross got the Rams to the 15, but Stags senior linebacker Zach Dulac came up with an interception on the next play to stall the Rams, at least temporarily. “I’m a linebacker,” Dulac said. “I don’t usually drop back into coverage too much, but I managed to work my way back there. I just saw the ball and was lucky enough to catch it.” Jendrasko ran the ball three straight times to pick up a first down, but fumbled on the next play, with Miranda again recovering at the Cheverus 29 on the first play of the fourth quarter. Seven plays later — all rushes — Ross ran in from two yards out and added the PAT, making it 29-27 with 8:46 left. The Stags took over at their own 30. After an incompletion and short rushing gain, Hardy picked off Gwilym and returned

Cheverus from page 11 it to the Cheverus 9, setting up first-andgoal. Ross found junior Nick DiBiase for a 9-yard scoring pass, added the kick and gave Deering a 34-29 lead with 7:38 left. The Rams had scored 28 unanswered points before Jendrasko’s final TD. “They’re a dynamic team,” Wolfgram said, of Deering. “They move the ball so fast. Ross is a really good quarterback, and they have three receivers. They just have a dynamic offense. We tried to keep the ball away from them, but we couldn’t move the ball well enough.” Deering piled up 346 yards of offense in the first half (and outgained Cheverus 501317 for the game), but had four turnovers in the opening 24 minutes, three of which led to Cheverus touchdowns. The Rams had the ball to start and went to the air right away. Ross hit Hardy for 38 yards and Lowry for 27 to set up first-andgoal at the 9. Three plays later, Ross found Lowry on the goal line over the middle for an 8-yard touchdown. The kick failed and Deering led 6-0 with 9:29 left in the first quarter. Cheverus answered quickly as junior Spencer Cooke busted through a hole in the middle of the line and outran the defense for a 71-yard touchdown with 7:52 left. DiStasio added the kick to give the Stags a 7-6 lead. An interception by sophomore Ryan Casale set the Stags up at the Deering 17, and Jendrasko ran it in for the score from 7 yards out on third down. With the kick, Cheverus led 14-6 midway through the first quarter.

Ross led the Rams downfield on their next series, but Gwilym picked off a pass in the end zone on third-and-8 from the Stags 22. Gwilym returned it 105 yards, zagging and breaking tackles on his lengthy touchdown journey. “That was big,” Wolfgram said. “It was a game of emotion swings. It was a game of momentum swings. That was big, but there were other big ones, too. Peter just made some great plays.” After the game, Stilphen contended that Gwilym stepped out of bounds well before he reached the end zone. “Football should never come down to excuses, but you know what, on that touchdown run, (Gwilym) stepped out of bounds twice and the official flat-out blew it,” Stilphen said. “That’s inexcusable in a Western Maine final. You’re here because you’re good at what you do. Everybody makes mistakes — the first one I could see, but the second time he was out by a foot. It wasn’t even close.” After the return, Jendrasko ran in for two as a Deering penalty halved the distance to the goal, and the Stags led 22-6 with 1:41 left in the first quarter. Cheverus went up 29-6 with 10:41 left in the half as Gwilym hit DiStasio on a crossing pattern for a 37-yard touchdown, coming one play after a Deering fumble that Dulac pounced on. The rout appeared to be on, especially after a punt by Gwilym was downed by Jendrasko inside the Deering 1. But Ross threw to Lowry for eight yards from his own end zone, then hit Lowry again seven plays later down the left sideline for a 61-

yard scoring strike with 2:07 left. The score was 29-12, which it stayed until halftime. The Rams, who advanced to the regional finals with impressive wins over No. 6 Thornton Academy (56-18) and No. 2 Bonny Eagle (28-6), regrouped at halftime and turned in a spirited effort that made last season’s 2-6 campaign seem eons ago. “We just told them at halftime, ‛No regrets. Go out there and play,’” Stilphen said. “And they did. We put ourselves in a situation where we had a chance, and you can’t ask for more than that.” Dulac, who admitted to being “terrified” as he watched Ross’ final kick, praised the effort of Deering — an opponent Cheverus manhandled just a few weeks before. “I just want to say how well those kids played,” Dulac said. “I grew up with those kids from Portland. Obviously I’m glad to win, but that one could have gone either way. We didn’t come out hard enough in the second half. They stalled us on drives.”

Despite their undefeated record, the Stags are no strangers to nail-biters. They had to rally to defeat No. 8 Windham in the quarterfinals, 34-27, and edged No. 5 Scarborough in the semifinals, 21-14. There were also close calls in the regular season against Portland and Bonny Eagle. “We’re a mature team,” Dulac said. “We know not to get too down on ourselves. There’s always time to play. We keep repeating 48 minutes because there’s 48 minutes in a ballgame. I think that’s a perfect example of it right there.” While this Cheverus team may not be the most dominant team Wolfgram has coached during his illustrious career that has included state championships at numerous schools, he said they simply never quit. “They play hard for 48 minutes,” Wolfgram said. “They compete and they’re resilient, and they’re just really good kids.” Gwilym carried 18 times for 95 yards. He was 5-for-10 passing for 78 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Cooke rushed for 92 yards on eight carries. “Congratulations to Cheverus,” Stilphen said. “They did a great job. I wish Coach Wolfgram and his team the best of luck. I think the most of him. He’s a mentor to me, a friend to me.” While Deering’s season has to be considered a success by any measure, the sting of what could have been will likely linger for the Rams, who will graduate some talented seniors, including Ross, a Fitzpatrick Trophy contender, who has put up staggering numbers this season both on the ground and in the air. “My seniors — I love them,” Stilphen said. “They’ve made me be a better person.”

McAuley senior Rebecca Knight signs her National Letter of Intent Wednesday morning to attend and play basketball at the University of Maine. Knight, flanked by parents, Greg and Diane, with athletic director Joe Kilmartin and coach Amy Vachon also in the photo, committed early to U. Maine and coach, Cindy Blodgett. “I’m excited,” Knight said. “I really wanted to stay in Maine, represent the state and be close to my family. I want to help build up a program. I felt at home there.” Knight, an Alfred resident, who has been a threeyear contributor to the always-competitive Lions girls’ basketball squad, is uncertain on a major, but is interested in becoming an athletic trainer. She has high hopes for her senior season. “I want to win a state championship and stay healthy,” said Knight, who missed several games last winter. “We have a lot of expectations.”

November 17, 2010

Memorable from page 11 “Why can’t I be two places at once?” I lamented. After seemingly long minutes of silence, my phone buzzed and the text message read: 35-34. Final. FG no good. While there’s no substitute for seeing a game first-hand, I was almost as wound up with the magnitude of what had transpired at Boulos Stadium as if I’d been there. As word passed along the sideline and eventually into the crowd, everyone was awestruck at the result, even as the game in front of them proved to be pretty dramatic as well. Three hours later, at Bruno’s Restaurant in Portland, seemingly every Cheverus parent and fan was out celebrating. The purple

and gold invasion was in full swing. At 6:17 p.m., as Lee Goldberg began his highlights on the big TV, all activity in the bar came to a dead stop as fans relived the glory and drama of what had transpired earlier that afternoon. It’s likely the roar of happiness and relief at the end equaled the one from earlier in the day. From Portland to Yarmouth and statewide on the MBR.org message boards, high school football fans couldn’t stop marveling over this game for the ages. Legendary sportswriter Red Smith once wrote in describing Bobby Thomson’s home run to win the 1951 National League pennant, “Now it is done. Now the story ends. And there is no way to tell it. The art of fiction is dead. Reality has strangled invention. Only the utterly impossible, the inexpressibly fantastic, can ever be plausible again.”

Portland

Saturday afternoon, reality strangled invention once more. Cheverus survived and will meet Bangor in the Class A Final Saturday. Considering this team’s heart, there’s no reason to think it can’t find a way to win one more game and capture the program’s first championship since 1985. “They play hard for 48 minutes,” Wolfgram said of his players following Saturday’s victory. “They compete and they’re resilient, and they’re just really good kids.” But if Cheverus is No. 1 in Western A this year, Deering deserves mega-kudos

15

for being No. 1A. The Rams turned heads, never gave up and even inspired coach Greg Stilphen, who normally features all the public subtlety and sensitivity of a howitzer blast to wax poetic. “My seniors — I love them,” Stilphen said. “They’ve made me be a better person.” This game gave everyone who loves the great sport of football and whether they were on hand or not Saturday, an incredible gift. One that won’t fade for a long, long time. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@theforecaster.net

Out & About

‘Blueberries, Broadway & Brian,’ Time for Three, a ‘Wild Party’ and more By Scott Andrews There’s an interesting mix of theater and music worth checking out this week in southern Maine. Perhaps the most interesting of all is a warmly humorous account of the life local theatrical director and producer Brian Allen. And it’s delivered by the man himself. The Portland Symphony Orchestra has co-commissioned a new work especially tailored for its guest ensemble, Time For Three. Be among the first in the world to hear it on the Nov. 21 Classical Sunday concert. The decadence of the Roaring Twenties is recalled this weekend on the University of Southern Maine’s Gorham campus with “The Wild Party,” an Off-Broadway musical that’s being produced by the School of Music. The Oratorio Chorale opens its 20102011 season — and the 25th anniversary season of music director Peter Frewen — with a pair of concerts in Bath on Saturday and Yarmouth on Sunday. ‘Blueberries, Broadway & Brian’ Brian P. Allen, co-founder and artistic director of Portland’s Good Theater, has loved the stage all his life. His first public performance was in the title role of “Sonny Bunny” in a grade school production, and after college he became the business manager of Maine State Music Theatre. He’s had many theatrical experiences since then, including a national tour of an off-Broadway show he co-created. His latest stage incarnation is a very funny, very engaging biographical retrospective that recounts his life and times, starting with the family blueberry business in Union up to the present. Along the way he’s met some interesting characters and had some fascinating experiences. “Blueberries, Broadway & Brian” is divided roughly 50-50 between stand-up comedy and one-man play. It’s full of laughs and offers wonderful insights into characters such as the late Vickie Crandall, MSMT founder and longtime artistic director.

I saw it this past weekend and highly recommend the show to anyone interested in theater, especially its behind-the-scenes workings. Good Theater presents “Blueberries, Broadway & Brian” through Nov. 21 at the St. Lawrence Arts Center, 76 Congress St. in Portland (top of Munjoy Hill) with a 7 p.m. performance Nov. 17, 7:30 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. There’s also a 3 p.m. matinee on Saturday. Call Good Theater at 885-5883. Portland Symphony Orchestra Three major modern works are slated when the Portland Symphony Orchestra plays this Sunday, and one of them is brand new. The PSO has co-commissioned a genre-crossing composition written especially for its guest artists, a Philadelphia-based trio that goes by the name of Time For Three. All three of the works on this program integrate myriad styles that will result in a fascinating musical exploration. Two of the pieces are quite well known — Paul Hindemith’s playful “Symphonic Metamorphosis,” which is based on themes by the Romantic composer Carl Maria von Weber, and Leonard Bernstein’s “Symphonic Dances from West Side Story,” an extensive orchestral compilation from the famous 1957 Broadway musical. This landmark work incorporates popular melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic styles, including swing, bop, cool jazz, Latin music, ballads and up-tempo jive. “Travels in Time for Three” was written specifically for the talents of the trio and embraces many musical genres from jazz to country, Irish folk to funk, and gospel to classical. The trio sports an interesting combination of instruments: two violins plus double bass. They will join the PSO for the Maine premiere of “Travels in Time for Three,” composed by Chris Brubeck (son of jazz legend Dave Brubeck). Catch the Portland Symphony Orchestra Nov. 21 at 2:30 p.m. at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Brian Allen, a fixture of Maine theater for three decades, spins stories about his experiences in a very funny, engaging, highly personal show at the St. Lawrence Arts Center in Portland.

‘The Wild Party’ Decadence rules in the University of Southern Maine School of Music’s production of “The Wild Party,” a musical by Andrew Lippa, which has its Maine premiere this weekend on the Gorham campus. The 2000 off-Broadway musical, adapted from a poem, offers a tale of love and redemption, set during the Roaring Twenties. Here’s the setup: Queenie, a vaudeville dancer, and Burrs, a stage clown, are a high-living couple whose relationship is marked by reckless behavior. When the two decide to throw a party to end all parties in their Manhattan apartment, they invite a host of characters that revel in the fashions, affectations and habits of the jazz era. After Burrs and Queenie purposely set out to make the other jealous, emotions erupt and lives are changed forever. Andrew Lippa’s book, music and lyrics were inspired by Joseph Moncure March’s 1928 book-length poem of the same name. March’s book was deemed profane at the time and it fell into obscurity for 70 years until an artist, Art Spiegelman, found an original edition and published an illus-

Benefit drives from page 4 feed their families. “Anybody that walks through our doors and says they need help, we offer them assistance,” McKean said. The soup kitchen will be open on Thanksgiving but the food pantry will switch days that week to Tuesday, she said. “Big Hits Y100.9” Morning show host Chuck Igo said the food drive began nearly 20 years ago with radio station WMGX and was formerly called “Stuff the Mayflower,” though Preble Street has always been the beneficiary. He said Preble Street has expanded to offer many more services and said “it’s quite an undertaking on their part.” Igo calls the food drive “a labor of love” but said “it’s a lot of fun.” More than a dozen local schools in Cape Elizabeth, Portland, South Portland and Scarborough participate in the food drive and several schools allow the children to help carry donations to the bus so they can see the increasing amount of food, Igo said. In past years, Cape Elizabeth Middle School has donated so much food, it took nearly 30 minutes to load all of it on the bus, he said, adding that Longfellow Elementary School in Portland had boxes

trated version in 1999. Ed Reichert directs a cast of more than 20, plus a group of musicians. He advises that this show is unsuitable for children. Three performances in Corthell Hall on USM’s Gorham campus are scheduled for this weekend only: Nov. 20-21 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. Call 780-5555. Oratorio Chorale The Oratorio Chorale presents the first half of its two-program season Nov. 20-21 with performances of two major sacred works: Maurice Durufle’s Requiem Mass and Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cantata No. 80 — best known as “Ein feste Burg’ ist unser Gott.” The concerts will mark the 25th season for music director Peter Frewen, who notes that although the two works were written about 200 years apart in two very different countries, they are linked by the fact that both composers were church organists and both men looked back several centuries for inspiration. Frewen points out that Durufle’s Requiem was inspired by one sung by Gregorian monks in the Sixth Century. “He took as his starting material the melodies of the various sections of the Requiem Mass,” explained Frewen. “With great technical skill and profound artistic imagination, he embedded these ancient modal melodies in a context that projects both vivid pictorial imagery and deeply humane emotive surgings.” Likewise the Bach Cantata is based on a 16th-century hymn by Martin Luther that served as an anthem of the Reformation. “Basing the entire cantata on Luther’s melody, Bach created a universe of sound in which all phrases, of however diverse a character, orbit about, held in their spheres by the gravity of the central idea,” Frewen said. Catch the Oratorio Chorale Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at United Church of Christ in Bath and Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. at Sacred Heart Church in Yarmouth. Call 725-1420.

stacked along the length of an entire hallway three to four boxes high. By the time all the donated food is picked up from the schools, the bus is often already 3/4 full. “Every little bit does help,” Igo said. “There is no effort that is too small.” There are also local businesses that sign up to donate, he said. Some businesses donate food and some participate in a “virtual food drive” by making online donations directly to Preble Street through a link on the station’s website, www.y1009. com. Cash donations are used to purchase perishable items such as milk. There is also the opportunity for individuals to donate food. There will be a bus collecting food donations for Preble Street parked at Hannaford in Back Cove Nov. 23 from 7 to 10 a.m. and near the Maine Mall from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The bus will return to Back Cove Nov. 24 from 7 a.m. to noon. Everything collected will be delivered to Preble Street in time for Thanksgiving. Other corporate sponsors of the food drive include Wright Express, Falmouth Physical Therapy, Maine Credit Unions Campaign for Ending Hunger, Hannaford, MarketFresh Produce and Custom Coach and Limousine.

and Allagash. But he is first testing an already abundant microbrew market to see if his creations can gain a foothold. “This is a entree for me,” he said, “to see if I can make this work and if people are interested in what I brew.” Sanborn said owning and operating his own brewery has been “98-percent awesome.” The remaining 2 percent, which can only be described as not awesome, has been dealing with permitting and regulations, he said. “It’s much more tiring than I expected,” he said. “Much more of a grind.” While his brewery is located on the Maine Brewers’ Guild’s Beer Trail, Sanborn said Rising Tide doesn’t offer formal tours or samples, and does not yet have an in-house retail space to sell its beer. For the next six months to a year, Sanborn said he will continued to brew and sell his beers on a small scale. With his current equipment, Sanborn can brew in roughly 33-gallon batches, which he bottles, caps and labels by hand. So far, there have been 14 batches of Ishmael brewed, Sanborn said, which are being distributed to about 60 locations, including RSVP, the Great Lost Bear and at specialty markets like the Rose-

mont Market & Bakery and the Bow Street Market in Freeport. Each 22-ounce bottle retails at about $6, he said. “Right now, this beer is pretty much flying out the door,” said Sanborn, who described his early success as a “honeymoon period.” “I’m getting great feedback,” he added. Rising Tide will be soon hanging up the Autumn ale to make way for a winter beer. Starting next week, Sanborn said he will try his hand at a wheat-based stout, using Bavarian Weizen yeast. It’s a beer that Sanborn hopes will carve out another niche in the local beer market. “I’ve never seen anything quite like it,” he said of stout. “For me, it’s about brewing the beer I want to brew.”

much different from your home-brew set,” Sanborn said of his roughly 1,500-square foot space with three kettles and two fermenters. “There’s some adjustment, but it wasn’t a huge adjustment.” While owning his own commercial brewery has always been in the back of his mind, Sanborn said it moved to the forefront last summer, when he finally decided the time was right to give it a shot. The Portland resident released his first beer under the Rising Tide label in September with Ishmael, an American Copper Ale. Sanborn said Ishmael is a light brown elixir with a clean malt focus and a deliberately light alcohol content. While many brown ales contain 7 percent alcohol by volume, Ishmael weighs in a 4.9 percent. It is sold in 22-ounce bottles, Sanborn said, so people can enjoy more than one without becoming too intoxicated. “Seven percent (alcohol content) is kind of a turn off for some people,” he said. Sanborn said he would eventually like to operate full brewery akin to nearby breweries like Maine Beer Co.

Parking from page 5

Several residents who abut business zones were worried the changes would increase on-street parking demands in their neighborhoods, especially if a five-year lease on garage spaces runs out and is not renewed. “You have to know everyone’s schedule to find and get a parking spot,” Deering Street resident Keri Lord said. “Reducing the cost ... is a mistake and will be taken advantage of.” City Planner William Needelman said there is no incentive for developers to pay $10,000 to the city, when they can build parking spaces for the same amount of money. But Councilor David Marshall said he hopes the lower fee would allow the program to work as intended and encourage denser developments in business zones that do not have expansive parking lots. “I fear if we have the fee too high no one will take advantage of it,” Marshall said. “I hope this hits the sweet spot.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or rbillings@theforecaster.net

Technology park from page 1 a tenant and the city has been in informal conversations with several others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beginning to market it more heavily now,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mitchell said establishing the roadways and setting up the utilities, which are extremely costly, will make the site more attractive to prospective businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shortens the time frame and positions the city to attract investment that I would dare say we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t otherwise,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. City Business Development Director Nelle Hanig said the biotechnology and information technology sectors are typically those that benefit by having a campus arrangement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to bring more high technology jobs to Portland,â&#x20AC;? Hanig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seemed like a no-brainer to build a technology park, a place where these 5

companies can come and work together, be in the same location and exchange ideas and network.â&#x20AC;? Hanig said commercial real estate brokers have told the city the proposed location of the business park, near Exit 47 on Interstate 95, was ideally located in terms of transportation and workforce. The site, located just north of Westbrook Street and east of I-95, will also offer employees lunchtime recreation opportunities, since it is located next to 200 acres of protected land and trails. About 10 acres of the site are forested wetlands and vernal pools, none of which have been identified as having â&#x20AC;&#x153;special significanceâ&#x20AC;? by the state Department of Environmental Protection, according to planning documents Officials hope to have the project permitted within three to six months and have the roads and utilities installed by end of 2011.

Gun ban from page 1 “When seconds count, police are minutes away,” said Bellanger, who was wearing a Heckler & Kock USP Compact .357 Sig handgun. Skolnik said it was the city’s responsibility to seek the authority to ban guns from public gathering spaces, such as the Cumberland County Civic Center and City Hall, equating it to fire safety codes. Skolnik said the resolution was not meant to target gun owners, but protect the public. “(Openly carrying a handgun in pub-

lic) is no different than shouting fire in a crowded theater,” he said. “In the same way, carrying a gun in a public meeting creates fear.” Lyman resident Norman Hamann, who is a member of Maine Open Carry, pushed back against that analogy. “You can’t ban someone’s mouth from coming into a theater,” said Hamann, who wore a fully loaded Glock 19, including one bullet in the chamber, as well as two loaded spare clips. “You can’t stop a violent criminal with a silly ordinance.” Resident Shoshana Hoose said the presence of weapons at the meeting made her uncomfortable speaking her mind.

November 17, 2010

“I feel uncomfortable and intimidated being in this room tonight to discuss a controversial issue when there’s people carrying guns,” Hoose said. “That’s exactly why I think you should pass this resolution.” Councilor Cheryl Leeman voted against the resolution, because she believed concerned residents should contact their state legislators, rather than the local council. “My suggestion is you take your argument to Augusta,” Leeman said. Councilor David Marshall unsuccessfully suggested tabling the resolution indefinitely, in light of the election results that ushered in a Republican Legislature

and governor, the latter of whom received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association. “Do you really think they’re going to do anything with this resolution besides file it in the trash?” resident Steven Sharf asked. But Councilor Dory Waxman said it was important for the city to take a stand, regardless of who holds power in Augusta. “I think this is a noble and good thing to do in Portland,” Waxman said. “If it goes to Augusta and doesn’t go anywhere, it’s OK. At least we had a voice.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or rbillings@theforecaster.net
