Compromise extends Higgins Beach parking, limits spaces By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — Parking along Higgins beach will now be allowed year-round, restricted to one hour in the summer and unlimited in the off season, for approximately 15 cars.

All other parking along the beach and nearby streets has been eliminated. Also, the off-season has been extended by six weeks to match other town beaches. It will begin Sept. 15 and end April 30.

After a series of amendments, some that passed, others that failed, the Town Council on Wednesday reached a compromise. It allows parking along Bayview Avenue from Pearl Street beyond a new drop-off

zone, to Morning Street. Previously suggested no-time-limit parking from Morning to Vesper streets was eliminated. “I think they did a good job compromising,” said Higgins Beach resident and Higgins

Beach Committee member Barbara Belicose. “I’m thrilled about the side streets, disappointed about the summer parking.” See page 20

Block party

By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — An affordable housing development may be in Scarborough’s future if a $10,000 Community Development Block Grant is awarded to the town. Habitat for Humanity and the Scarborough Housing Alliance have teamed up in the hope that a small parcel of town-owned land just off Broadturn Road, between Saratoga Lane and the Maine Turnpike, can be used for workforce housing. “We’re in the very early stages here,” Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Stephen Bolton said. “This small grant would pay for engineering studies.” The 20-acre property, which See page 20

The Maine Mall in South Portland was as busy as a multi-colored beehive on Saturday, Jan. 15, as builders gathered from all over for a fundraiser for the fourth annual Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland LEGO House Buildathon. Keegan Haley, 8, right, and Hunter Brown, 9, both from Gray, teamed up to build a lighthouse. A record-setting 40 teams took part this year, raising more than $3,500, almost double the event’s goal of $2,000. Organizers said all money raised will be used to put the finishing touches on a home in Westbrook for a single mother and her three children.

Downeast gallery moves to Meeting House Hill By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — For as long as Anders Larson can remember, his father would create art in the common spaces of their South Penobscot home. So, it only seems fitting the family is using a house on Meeting House Hill to show the late David Henning Larson’s work. “We really like the feel,” Larson said of the former Old Crow Gallery. “His work space was always right in the living space. He’d have two or three pieces going at once.” “I’d like to live here,” added his 74-yearold mother, Carole, who was helping set up the gallery Monday morning. “The only thing missing is a shower.” The Larsons are moving pieces of David Henning Larson’s artwork from their previous gallery in the former Penobscot Canning Co. to the building at 331 Cottage Road. Anders Larson said the decision to close the South Penobscot gallery stemmed from the family’s desire to introduce the artist’s work, which is being featured as part of a Maine Masters video series, to a wider audience. “The summer traffic was our business there,” Larson said. “There were always repeat customers. And it wasn’t just to look at art. Usually they’d wind up on the back

deck having lunch.” But, after his father’s death in 2007 and the start of the recession, traffic at the Downeast gallery dried up. “What we’ve noticed over the last four or five years there is that the number of adventurous tourists is not what it used to be,” he said. Larson, a 46-year-old South Portland resident who is a seventh-grade teacher in Sanford, is the youngest of three children. His two brothers live in New York City, where they considered opening a gallery, but were discouraged by the cost. “This is sort of an experiment,” he said. What was rarely an experiment was David Henning Larson’s art. Brooksville artist Robert Shetterly, who is perhaps best known for his Americans

Community space considered in replacement for Scarborough school By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — A discussion between town councilors and Wentworth Building Committee members Wednesday highlighted the town’s concerns that a new intermediate school may eliminate some of the spaces utilized by the town’s community programs. “We recognize there is a need to continue community services,” Superintendent of Schools Jo Anne Sizemore said. The discussion came after the School Board voted two weeks ago to support the building committee’s recommendation to build a new school to replace the ailing Wentworth school. The town offers preschool and childcare programs at the Bessworth School, which is behind the Wentworth building and where the new school is proposed to be built. “I hope this is the beginning of the conversation we can continue to have,” Town Manager Tom Hall said. “It would be a shame to squander the few opportunities we have left on this campus.” School board members and councilors discussed the need to keep the total price of the new building low, while still providing as much space as possible. “I’m interested in seeing us move forward with the best educational building

Comment on this story at:

we can for the best price,” said Councilor Michael Wood, who also sits on the Wentworth Building Committee. Wood stressed the importance of communicating with the public about plans for the new building. A 2006 referendum to replace the Wentworth and middle school buildings failed. It has been suggested the proposed cost was too high and there was poor communication about the project. “I’m sensitive to the fact that the community at large is paying attention,” Wood said. “Perception is a big piece of this.” School Board member Aymie Hardesty, who has been a vocal advocate for addressing air quality concerns at the existing school, said she would like to see a financially responsible, but communityoriented new building. “It takes a village,” she said. “I know we have to be fiscally conservative. I would like that. But if we’re going to build a place, at least make it expandable for the future.” After the meeting, School Board Chairman Christopher Brownsey said it is important that the town be aware of some of the issues with the current Wentworth

Police contacted the cab company and learned the vehicle was headed to Weymouth Street. Rogers said, when officers located Gribbin, he refused to remove his hands in his pockets and told police to shoot him, because he had a gun. Police used a Taser to bring him into custody, he said.

Winter Harvest: Healthy start to a new year By Amy Anderson Some people have a difficult time around the holidays and this year, I could relate. I turned 35 in December and spent my first holiday without parents. Instead of being angry or depressed about aging or outliving my parents, I gave myself permission to enjoy whatever made me happy. Food and drink! I ate out on my birthday, went to holiday parties, enjoyed – without guilt – all the ham and pasta, cheese-and-meat platters, dips and spreads and desserts I could handle. Looking back, I survived the month and had a great time. And grew. On New Year’s Day I decided it was time to scale it back a bit. Speaking of scale, I bought one. I went on the South Beach Diet and begin an exercise regime. For two weeks, I eliminated carbohydrates as a way to stabilize my blood sugar and stop cravings for sugar. I ate lean proteins and tons of vegetables. It’s a good diet to kick-start weight loss because the results are evident in about a week. After the strict two-week phase it is time to incorporate carbohydrates and fruits back into the diet. When it was time to order from the winter co-op I thought I would be unable to get anything except garlic because I thought all the winter vegetables would be packed with sugars and starch. I was wrong. I did have to stay away from potatoes, rutabagas, pumpkins, some squash and cooked beets, but there were many other vegetables I could order and enjoy even on the strict phase of the diet. Cranberry beans, kale, Brussels sprouts, onions and garlic, mushrooms, broccoli, raw beets and turnips, cucumbers, and radish are all great choices. These foods are low on the glycemic index – the scale that rates how quickly carbohydrate-rich foods raise blood sugar levels. Foods that are low on the index produce fewer fluctuations in blood sugar, which helps maintain a steady level of insulin, promotes heart health and decreases the chance of diabetes. I purchased kale because I just can’t get enough of it, cranberry beans because I’ve never cooked with them before, and salad dressing made from tomatoes and herbs grown on Jordan’s Farm. I always order seafood from Alewive’s Brook Farm and vegetables from Green Sparks.

cranberry beans. Let cook for about 10 more minutes. Remove the now wilted kale and beans from the heat and add a bit more oil to the pan. Add the fish to the pan and cook about 3 minutes on each side. Plate the fish, kale and beans and eat up.

Cod, mushroom and miso broth After a nearly two-hour tooth surgery last week, I couldn’t eat anything but soft foods for a few days. I tried to stay true to the South Beach Diet and found soups were the only way to go. Canned Campbell’s was fine for a while, but after day two, I needed real food. This recipe made me feel human again and tasted like more

Toss the other two garlic cloves and mushrooms in small bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper (and red chili flakes if you like a bit o’ heat) and saute for about eight minutes. In a medium pan, heat 2 tablespoons of miso paste in the broth until it dissolves. Pour broth into a bowl, add sauteed mushrooms, garlic and the roasted mushrooms and garlic and fish and top with scallions. Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or

Welcome to Conflagrationland Unless you live in a bomb shelter, you know about the fire storm that erupted Editor’s last week after Gov. Paul LePage told the NAACP to “kiss my butt.” It was a new low for the new governor, whose promise last year to tell the president of the United States “to go to hell” was largely written off as a stream-ofconsciousness campaigntrail rant in keeping with the then-Waterville mayor’s working-class personality. His staff’s explanation for the most recent insult – that Mo Mehlsak the governor was speaking “in the direct manner people have come to expect” – leaves much to be desired. It’s hard to believe that many of the





Earn from


38 percent of Maine voters who put LePage in office last November, let alone the majority who voted for other candidates, are proud of their governor. On the contrary, most Mainers are probably deeply disturbed and embarrassed by LePage, who three days after the fact had not even acknowledged the damage and impropriety of his words, let alone apologized for speaking them. LePage’s remarks – the type usually heard in bar-room or playground arguments – were even more inflammatory and disappointing because they came on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and because he derisively described the NAACP as a “special-interest group.” Whether or not you agree with that characterization, one has to wonder if the governor uses the term when he describes, for example, the National Rifle Association, Maine State Chamber of Commerce, Maine Right to Life Committee or Maine Heritage Policy Center. The governor also accused the NAACP of playing “the race card” when its leaders said they were concerned that LePage is demonstrating a pattern of

behavior by snubbing annual MLK Jr. Day events. But it was LePage who brought race into the discussion, suggesting his “black son” – a questionable way to describe someone who is neither adopted nor a LePage offspring – could set the critics straight. On Monday, when the governor made a surprise appearance at an MLK Jr. Day breakfast in Waterville, his attendance seemed all too calculated; a too-little, too-late attempt to patronize those who criticized him for the lack of thought involved when LePage spoke the previous Friday. Unfortunately, the pattern of speech that LePage is displaying gives little hope that there’s much thought going on at all. And that is what is truly worrisome. Whether you agree or not with his politics and policies, Maine needs a governor who can present and defend those policies with rational, respectful, and well-defined arguments, not stream-of-consciousness, knee-jerk rants. LePage’s language and behavior must reflect that he now works at the Blaine House, not the Marden’s warehouse. Mainers deserve better from their governor, and we and the NAACP deserve an apology for the embarrassment he has caused, as well as a pledge to refrain from future scorched-earth political rhetoric.

LePage’s explanation falls short I come from simple people, many with high school educations, some with less. I’m sure some of my Canadian great aunts and uncles would not have known English words like “civility.” But they came to the United States to assimilate, to work hard, to be good citizens. My father’s folks grew up on the streets of Lewiston, you might say. My grandparents still often spoke the Quebecois they learned first in the provinces as children in huge Catholic families. My grandfather, Lucien, was the city clerk of Lewiston for years and I, too, walked the streets with him. He seemed to know everyone. He spoke French and English to them, but never trash. I have heard the “reasons” that Paul LePage and his assistants give for his speech: wanting to tell Obama to “go to hell,” telling the NAACP to kiss his butt. As much as Paul Lepage says he will not be hostage to special-interest groups, the reason given for his gaffes is basically that he comes from one. I was told, by my people from the streets of Lewiston, that we might be able to understand our current behavior by looking at our up-bringing. Yet, they added, once we become adults, we can no longer use our past as an excuse for our present actions. My hope is that in the future, Paul LePage will take a lesson from the many French Canadian-Americans who are also appalled by his talk. Never were we Francos allowed to speak with such disrespect.

Council thanks Prouts Neck residents In November, the Prouts Neck Association Community Grant Program awarded $1,000 to the Scarborough Athletic Council. The grant money is a wonderful reflection of tremendous generosity shown by residents of the Prouts Neck community. Scarborough Athletic Council would like to formally thank and recognize the Prouts Neck residents for this most generous gift. The grant will be used mostly towards funding college scholarships for Scarborough graduating senior athletes and team managers. It’s great to know that this type of local generosity still exists during challenging economic times. Scarborough Athletic Council offers the most college scholarships to graduating Scarborough High School seniors. This grant award is a great example of how local residents can support the future success of collegebound Scarborough seniors involved in school athletics. Lucia Jones Scarborough

Time to stop the crazy talk In the wake of the tragic shootings in Tucson, Ariz., there has been a lot of finger-pointing but not a lot of soul-searching when it comes to why a deranged young man attempted to assassinate U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in the process killing and wounding bystanders. From the outset, the sheriff of Pima County has pointed a finger at conservative talk radio. “When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain The Universal mouths about tearing down the government,” Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said. “The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous and unfortunately Arizona has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry.” Though he did not name names, Dupnik reportedly had radio and Edgar Allen Beem TV rabble-rouser Glenn Beck in mind when he made those comments. So is Glenn Beck personally to blame for the massacre in Tucson? The easy answer is that nothing and no one is to blame when a crazy person commits an horrendous act of violence. But it’s too easy to just blame an irrational mind and leave it at that. Why would a crazy man plan to shoot up a congresswoman’s public gathering instead of, say, the local community college that had expelled him? Did it have anything to do with the fact that the crazy man was a Hitler lover with suspected ties to white supremacist groups and the congresswoman is a Jewish woman who opposed Arizona’s draconian immigration laws? Maybe, maybe not. Did it have anything to do with the fact that Sarah Palin posted a map with telescopic-sight crosshairs on it “targeting” Rep. Giffords for defeat? Maybe, maybe not. Did it have anything to do with the fact that Giffords’ opponent held a rally at which he invited supporters to shoot an M16 with him for $50 to “Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office?” Maybe, maybe not. Did it have anything to do with failed Nevada senatorial candidate Sharron Angle’s warning about


“Second Amendment remedies?” Not in and of itself. Though you do have to wonder about the mental state of a woman who would follow a comment about “Second Amendment remedies” by saying, “I’ll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.” And it’s too easy to blame Arizona’s extremely lenient gun laws, which allow just about anyone to carry a concealed weapon without a permit. But the cumulative effect of all the militant right-wing rhetoric about taking back America and all the open-carry advocates showing up armed at tea party gatherings surely had an impact on an unstable mind. The direct cause of the shootings in Tucson was one crazy young man. But Dupnik is right. One of the indirect causes surely was the climate of anger and hatred inflamed by all the crazy talk in America these days. Reasonable people should be able to express legitimate concerns and air their differences without making it sound as though they were in a battle between good and evil. I suppose I’m guilty of this demonization myself. All this crazy talk from the right makes me angry. Still, I don’t use gun metaphors to express that anger. President Obama is a Muslim, a socialist, a Black Panther, a foreigner. Crazy talk. Obama is “either stupid or evil,” as someone now in the Maine Legislature once wrote. Crazy talk. The government is going to take away our guns. Crazy talk. Health-care reform is government tyranny. Crazy talk. Taxation is theft. Crazy talk. The Constitution is under attack. Crazy talk. It’s time for another American Revolution. Crazy talk. The conventional wisdom is that the shootings in Tucson should not be seen as politically motivated because the shooter’s political ramblings were incoherent. But the crazy talk coming from right-wing extremists is every bit as irrational as that of the disturbed young man who committed this heinous crime. To suggest that it did not contribute to pushing a deranged man over the edge is itself crazy talk. There is nothing wrong in this country that justifies talk of overthrowing the government. Any assertion to the contrary is (fill in the blank). Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth. The Universal Notebook is his personal, weekly look at the world around him.

Paul D. Gray, 60: Helped shape future of Maine Medical Center SOUTH PORTLAND — Paul D. Gray, 60, died Jan. 10 in Portland. Born April 29, 1950, in Dallas, Texas, a son of Donald Richard Gray and Agnes Lou Smith Gray, he attended Texas schools, and graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin and earned a master’s Gray degree in labor and industrial relations at Michigan State University.

He began his career as a senior executive with the Texas Medical Association in Austin, and later worked in senior management positions with Texas firms focused on strategic and facility planning for health science centers and teaching hospitals. In 1984 he married Beth L. DeTine, and had a daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Gray, born in 1988. With a desire to trade hectic business travel for a more family-centered life, they moved to Portland where he joined Maine Medical Center as vice president of planning.

������ ��� ��������� ����� �������� �� � ���� ����� ������� ������ �������

An atypical Texan, he immediately adopted Maine as his home and loved the four seasons and natural beauty of Maine. As vice president for system-wide planning, he led the integrated strategic planning processes for Maine Medical Center, MaineHealth and its other member organizations. Among many noteworthy accomplishments, he contributed to the merger of Maine Medical Center and Brighton Medical Center; the joint venture with New England Rehabilitation HospitalPortland; the development of the MMC Scarborough Campus; the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital; and the Gibson Pavilion. He was involved in a variety of community and professional organizations, serving on the boards of the New England Society for HealthCare Strategy, the Center for Grieving Children, and the Foundation of Southern Maine Community College. A quiet man of faith, he was also active

in the First Congregational Church, where he was a leader of the strategic planning process and member of the board of deacons and the council. Survivors include his wife, Beth; and daughter, Elizabeth; his sister, Sandra Gray Griffith and her husband Brooks of Austin, Texas; sisters-in-law and brothersin-law and their children, Nancy DeTine, Jim Mendola and Caitlin DeTine; Susan DeTine-Carter, Don Carter, Katie and Don Carter; Linda DeTine, Jim Glose, Max Glose and Sophie DeTine; Amy DeTine and Ted LaCroix; Carol DeTine, Roger Woodman and Abby Woodman. Memorial services were held last week. Arrangements are by Hobbs Funeral Home, 230 Cottage Road, South Portland.

Cross-country skiing in Reid State Park GEORGETOWN — Fresh snow and Maine coastal scenery just might be the perfect union. Most winters, if lucky, we enjoy a few brief weeks of good skiing at water’s edge. We are in the midst of such a glorious period right now. One of the most magnificent coastal skiing experiences outside Acadia National Park just might be the trail system and beaches of Reid State Park. When conditions allow, the park staff groom the 2.2-mile North Boundary Trail, and the access road leading a mile out to Half Mile Beach. The packed trail is 2 feet wide, but not set with tracks. Despite the lack of set tracks we easily glided through a beautiful evergreen forest. A recent footdeep snowfall had plastered the northeast side of the trees in white. Loads of sugary snow sat precariously perched on bowed evergreen branches. Dapples of early morning sun tried valiantly to infiltrate the forest. The park gate opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m. Fees are posted at an Iron Ranger: $4.50 per adult with adults over 65 free of charge. Just past the fee station the road splits, with the plowed left fork leading out to Griffith Head and Mile Beach. Follow the right fork a hundred yards and park at the entrance gate for the unplowed park road leading a mile out to Todds Point and Half Mile Beach. The North Boundary Trail begins at the closed gate. A sign is posted for skiers, and the trail is marked with blue blazes. It

loops over gentle terrain back to the road a hundred yards south of where you began. The trail initially follows along the Seguinland Road, passing two ponds on the left. The dead trees on the far side of each pond looked like giant white pipe cleaners sticking up out of the snow. Once back out onto the park road we headed south, thankful for the sun on our faces on a chilly, but windless morning. Passing through an open section with vast marshes on each side of us we gazed east to the impressive reach of sand dunes separating us from the ocean. From the parking lot we carefully negotiated a snowdrift strewn trail down onto Half Mile Beach. We were delighted to find a wide ribbon of crusty snow above the tide zone perfect for gliding down the beach to the Little River. There were diamonds sparkling everywhere, on the freshly fallen snow, and on the calm ocean water. Small rollers politely tumbled onto the beach. Distant sea smoke and morning clouds hovered to the east over the water, with a brilliant blue sky above us. The fortress-like mass of Seguin with its flashing lighthouse beacon rose out of the sea four miles to the southwest. Across the mouth of the Little River a steep hillside of summer cottages and glades of birches

stood watch over the ebbing waters. The skiing was exceptional. We skied up and down the beach three times, all the while focused on the beauty of the sea. Back at the parking lot we skied up beyond the closed bathhouse for views out to sea and up the long sandy slope of Mile Beach. Four miles to the east the unique octagonal structure of Cuckolds Light clung fast to the ledges off of Southport Island. Further to the east the long line of Damariscove Island rose out of the sea. Once back at our car we drove a few hundred yards out to Griffith Head. Before walking the length of Mile Beach we scampered up onto the tall bluffs adjacent to the parking lot for a look up and down the coast. Many species of ducks had gathered in the protected narrows between a series of ledges below us. Bufflehead, goldeneye, black ducks, and a few immature loons floated along the seaweed-clad rocks. With our binoculars we scanned the western shoreline of Southport Island trying to see if we could pick out Hendricks Head Light at the mouth of the Sheepscot River. There it was, opposite the quaint fishing community of Five Islands. We were also able to identify the rocky northern headlands of Monhegan Island 15 miles out

beyond Damariscove. We were surprised at how steep Mile Beach was, and walked along water’s edge for the flattest route down the beach. Three men were working back and forth with metal detectors looking for World War II ordnance and coins. A flock of 30 sanderlings provided great entertainment, running back and forth with the ebb and flow of waves. It was amazing how fast they moved. It was as if each bird had consumed a six-pack of Red Bull before gathering on the beach for lunch. Sanderlings breed in the High Arctic during the brief summer season, and winter along the coast from Maine to Florida. We wondered how it came to be that some of these birds would decide to stay in Maine while others would fly much further south to Florida? Bring your skis the next time a beach walk is in the plans. With the right snow conditions you may create a ski outing that you will treasure forever. To get to Reid State Park follow Route 127 approximately 12 miles south from Route 1 in Woolwich. A state park sign is posted just before the right turn onto the Seguinland Road. Michael Perry is the former director of the L.L. Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools and founder of Dreams Unlimited, specializing in inspiring outdoor slide programs for civic groups, businesses and schools. Contact him at

Eight ways to keep a pet healthy Most people view their pets as an extension of the family. Therefore, pet parents are interested in the best ways to ensure their dogs, cats, birds, or small mammals are healthy and happy. It doesn’t take much to keep a pet healthy, but these steps are essential for the well-being of the animal. An individual who is not able to provide the general care for a pet -- whether financially or emotionally -- should reconsider if it is the right time to bring a pet into the household. A pet that is well cared for can live many years and provide great rewards. 1. Choose healthy foods. Many commer-

cially prepared foods are full of fillers and sugars instead of fresh meats and grains. Although it may cost a bit more, pet food that is primarily good quality meat and grains with minimal preservatives or artificial colorings can keep a pet in better form. Diet can affect health in a number of ways, including energy levels and coat appearance. So, good health begins with good food. 2. Keep fresh water handy. All animals should be given fresh water that is routinely changed. Bacteria and viruses can multiply in water that is left sitting around. Plus, there may be The Pawswater other contaminantsoingunfiltered In that’s



left stagnant. If a person wouldn’t drink the water, it shouldn’t be offered to a pet. 3. Exercise your pet. All animals need exercise to be healthy. Exercise helps to keep weight in check, banish boredom and ensure that the systems of the body all get pushed to their potential. A dog who does not get to exercise may become destructive in the house when the owners are not home. 4. Consult with a veterinarian. Routine health checkups should be part of keeping a pet healthy. Not only does the vet give pets annual vaccinations that can prevent common diseases, but also the vet will examine the animal to diagnose or catch illnesses early. If a pet is not acting normally, consult the vet. 5. Groom the pet regularly. Some animals

groom themselves. Others can use the help of nail clipping, bathing and fur cutting to keep in top form. Matted fur can pull at the skin and cause irritation. Dogs and cats may lick or bite at a wound and cause more trouble. Long nails can impede a bird’s ability to hold food or a perch. In general, a clean pet is a happy pet. 6. Know pet dangers around the house. Pet-proof the home just as one would baby-proof it. Keep chemical products locked up so they cannot be consumed. Certain products smell sweet and inviting to unsuspecting pets, but consumption can be deadly. Even certain houseplants can be toxic if eaten. 7. Avoid “people” food. Certain fruits and vegetables can be supplemented in a pet’s diet (consult with a veterinarian). However, on the whole, limit the amount of human food that pets eat. It may not provide the nutritional value the animal needs and can contribute to obesity. Foods like raisins, grapes, onions, and macadamia nuts can be toxic to dogs and cats, and should be avoided. 8. Show interest in the pet. A pet needs a certain level of interaction to be content. Discipline, affection and exercise with a pet parent are key components of animal health.

Winter fun continues By Michael Hoffer Basketball isn’t the only winter sport heating up (please see story). The rest of the winter sports landscape has featured plenty of action in recent days. Here’s a glimpse: Boys’ hockey Cape Elizabeth’s boys’ hockey team has hit its stride and is climbing up the standings. The Capers had a five-game win streak snapped last Thursday with a 5-3 home loss to defending regional champion York (senior Vinnie Dell’Aquila and juniors Nick Breed and Matt Ross had the goals), but Monday, they beat host Edward Little, 3-1, to improve to 6-4 (third in the Western Class B Heal Points standings). Cape Elizabeth hosts Winslow Saturday and Leavitt Monday. In Western A, South Portland is just 3-4-1 against its challenging slate, but that’s good for third in the Heals. Saturday, the Red Riots blanked visiting Edward Little, 4-0 (seniors Josh Cobb, Tommy Ellis and Zach

Horton and sophomore Nick Whitten all scored and junior goalie Dominic Desjardins enjoyed the shutout). Monday, they fell at home to Falmouth, 2-1 (despite a goal from junior Brendan Horton). South Portland played at Portland Thursday (see theforecaster. net for game story) and visits Scarborough next Thursday. Speaking of the Red Storm, they’re 2-5 after losses last week to top contenders host Falmouth (4-0) and visiting Biddeford (42). Senior Zach Pettingill and sophomore Nick Bagley scored versus the defending state champion Tigers. Scarborough (10th in the Heals) goes to Thornton Academy Saturday, then hosts South Portland Thursday. Girls’ hockey On the girls’ side, Scarborough has shot to the top of the West region standings with an 9-1-2 mark after playing York to a scoreless tie Saturday and winning at Portland Monday, 3-1.

South Portland junior Jordan Muller (No. 3) and his teammates celebrate during Saturday’s memorable 82-78, double-overtime, come-from-behind win at Thornton Academy.

A high school basketball season that gets more compelling by the day has passed the halfway pole and is heating up. The tournament is less than a month away. With that in mind, here’s a look at the eight local teams, where they stand and what’s to come. Red hot Little was expected of the 2010-11 South Portland boys’ team after it graduated not only standout Keegan Hyland, but also an abundance of other players who saw a ton of playing time. The Red Riots have won all but one of their first nine games, however, and have done so in exhilarating fashion of late. Last week, South Portland rattled off three straight victories on the road. After racing to a 28-8 halftime lead en route to a 48-33 triumph at Scarborough (senior Vukasin Vignjevic had 14 points, junior Jordan Muller 11), the Red Riots led from start to finish in a 50-39 win at Deering (junior Logan Gaddar had

15 points, Vignjevic 13 and Muller a dozen). “This summer and fall, we all made sure we all worked hard,” Gaddar said. “It’s paying off now. We work well together and everyone gets along. We have great chemistry.” “This was a total team win,” said Red Riots coach Phil Conley. “If you look at the scoring, it was pretty balanced. What I’m most proud of, is the past two games, we’ve held good teams below 40 points. Deering’s very well coached and they’re a very good team.” Then, in even more dramatic fashion, South Portland rallied from 19 points down at halftime and fought off tying baskets at the end of regulation and the first overtime to finally outlast highly touted Thornton Academy, 82-78, in double OT Saturday afternoon. In that one, senior Matt Russell (who made life miserable for all foes last week with his defense, rebounding and size) scored on a putback to put the Red Riots ahead to stay. Vignjevic had 31 points and Muller made 16-of-18 free throws, including the clinchers in the second extra session. “It was amazing,” said Muller. “We just came into the locker room at halftime and said we’d get back

into it. We came back and hit our free throws at the end.” “It was an unbelievable high school basketball game,” added Conley. “Two very good teams. I’m just so proud of how my guys battled from down almost 20 at halftime. I’m so happy and proud for these kids.” The Red Riots entered Wednesday’s game at Portland (see for game story) second behind undefeated, defending state champion Cheverus in the Western Class A Heal Points standings. South Portland finally returns home Friday to host Kennebunk and welcomes Gorham Tuesday. Scarborough has struggled of late after a fast start. The Red Storm have dropped four straight to fall to 6-5 (sixth in the region). After last week’s home loss to South Portland (senior Zach Bean had 11 points), Scarborough dropped a close one at Thornton Academy, 61-56 (Bean and senior Kyle Kelley both finished with a dozen), lost in a rematch of last year’s postseason meeting at Cheverus, 63-48 (despite 20 points from Bean), then dropped a 56-51 home decision to Biddeford (as Bean had 17 points and senior Mike

Winter fun from page 13 The Red Storm have a couple big home tests upcoming, versus Greely Saturday and St. Dom’s, the East region’s top team, Monday. Cape Elizabeth’s co-op team with Waynflete fell to 2-10 after recent losses to visiting York (7-5), visiting Falmouth (6-3) and host York (3-1). The Capers (seventh in the West) host Brunswick Saturday and Cheverus Wednesday. Track Week two of the indoor track season brought more triumph last weekend. Friday, Cape Elizabeth competed against Falmouth, Freeport, Greely, NYA, Traip and Wells. The girls were third and the boys fourth. Rachel Nichols won the girls’ mile (5 minutes, 31.45 seconds). The Capers meet Falmouth, Fryeburg, Greely, Lake Region, NYA and Yarmouth Friday. Saturday, Scarborough competed

against Bonny Eagle, Marshwood and Thornton Academy. The boys finished first, the girls second.

Midway point from page 13 Wofford 13). The Red Storm host Sanford Friday and go to Windham Tuesday. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth romped at home over Freeport, 89-32 (senior standout Theo Bowe had 21, classmate Joey Doane had 21 and senior Cam Brown and sophomore Kyle Snowden both added 10) last Thursday, before seeing its four-game win streak snapped with a surprising 6257 home loss to York (Bowe went off for 35 points in defeat) Saturday. The Capers (8-2 and fourth in the Heals) host Waynflete Friday, have a game at Lake Region Saturday, then host top-ranked Greely in a pivotal showdown Tuesday. In Western D, Greater Portland Christian School has a lot of work to do, quickly, to get in the playoff picture.

Saturday, South Portland was a 56-39 home winner over Thornton Academy (behind senior Abby Hasson’s career-high 26 points). The Red Riots were scheduled to host Portland Tuesday, but bad weather pushed that game back 24 hours. They go to Kennebunk Friday and Gorham Tuesday. Scarborough, the defending Class A champion, lost its first five games and six of its first seven this year, but the Red Storm are showing signs of life. Last


Thursday, Scarborough edged visiting Thornton Academy, 44-42, rallying from a huge early deficit behind 13 points from freshman Alisha Starbird and 10 from junior Brittany Bona. Saturday, the Red Storm hung tough with visiting challenger Cheverus before falling, 4935 (junior Mo Hannan had 11 points and sophomore Taylor LeBorgne 10). “I think our team played hard today against a very good Cheverus team,” Scarborough coach Jim Seavey said. “We were able disrupt them with pressure and force some tough shots. We’re a very young team, but we really competed today. We’ll be taking a lot of positives from this game. We kept it close for a large portion of the game and caused a lot of turnovers with our pressure. We just have to hit some shots and make sure not to turn the ball back over. We graduated six seniors from the state championship team, but we’re competing.” The Red Storm (14th in Western A) visits Sanford Friday and hosts Windham Tuesday. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth came back to Earth a bit last week, losing at Freeport (41-36) and York (50-28) to fall to 6-4 on the season (good for seventh in the standings). Senior Emily Donovan led the way in both games with 14 points. The Capers go to Waynflete Friday, host Lake Region Saturday and welcome

from page 1 was purchased approximately four years ago, used to be owned by the Maine Turnpike Authority. The town purchased it using part of its voter-approved land acquisition funds. According to Town Planner Dan Bacon, approximately half to two-thirds of the property would have to remain open space. The rest could be used for housing. The homes would be built by Habitat for Humanity volunteers and would likely sell for $175,000 to $220,000. Bolton said projects with Habitat for Humanity tend to take more time, because many of the supplies, as well as the labor and organization, are provided

However, because Habitat for Humanity holds the mortgages, the homes can be sold for significantly less than market value. “We’re looking at this parcel, but one of the things we’ve been sensitive about is that the neighbors don’t want lowincome housing next door,” Scarborough Housing Alliance Chairwoman Sue Foley-Ferguson said.

in this price range, which is what is considered affordable for households making $50,000 to $75,000 per year. “We don’t traditionally think families making that much need help, but it turns out they do,” Foley-Ferguson. She said homes priced around $200,000 are sold very quickly, and often need significant amounts of work before they are livable, which, for many families, makes them unaffordable.

Foley-Ferguson said both the alliance and Habitat for Humanity would host community meetings and do outreach to the neighbors to find out what they would like to see happen with the property.

Habitat recently completed a similar project in Portland, constructing four homes on Demerest Street. Two other projects, one in Freeport and one in Westbrook, are also underway.

“This would be a huge community project,” Foley-Ferguson said.

If the new homes in Scarborough are eventually built, Foley-Ferguson said Habitat for Humanity would offer them first to town employees and encourage

She said the alliance is concerned because there are so few homes available

minutes during the off season, others opposed to off-season parking restrictions.

“The people who wanted this have cars parked along the beach year-round and now only 15 people can go winter surfing,” said surfer and Higgins Beach Committee member Iver Carlsen.

A group that wanted off-season parking rules to be extended to match the rest of Scarborough’s beaches gathered 1,065 signatures on a petition for the council.

The decision comes after several months of public hearings attended by hundreds of people, some in favor of the Higgins Beach Committee’s initial recommendation to restrict parking to 30

January 21, 2011

Those in favor of the committee’s recommendations cited safety concerns on the narrow streets and questionable behavior by some beach visitors, while those opposed to the restrictions decried the restriction of public access.

With Councilor Richard Sullivan absent, several amendments failed Wednesday night by a vote of 3-3, including one by Councilor Michael Wood to allow only one-hour parking year-round on Bayview Avenue. An amendment to allow two-hour parking during the summer also failed. An amendment that limits parking from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. in designated spaces passed 4-2, with Councilors Jessica Holbrook and Karen D’Andrea opposed, while a previous amendment to limit parking from sunrise to sunset failed. Several councilors emphasized that the issue should be re-evaluated in December and that the data from the previous season should be reviewed if changes to the new rules need to be made.

Then, it would be up to Carole Larson to help him stretch out a proper-sized canvas for the job. Once the painting was created, David Larson, who was also a cabinet maker and woodworker, would then build a custom frame for each piece. “Nothing he did was off-the-cuff,” Anders Larson said. The gallery will feature examples from throughout David Henning Larson’s career, paintings and sculptures from the 1950s up to his death. He painted series inspired by the Last Supper, “Moby Dick” and mental asylums, among others. Next to each painting are displayed original poetry, quotes and excepts from letters the artist sent to friends. “It gives you a window into who he was,” Anders Larson said. “He could be a very serious man, but a very silly man.” Carole Larson offered a story about how an attempt at some ballerina steps landed her husband in the hospital for stitches. “This is our attempt to make it more personal,” Anders Larson said. Before moving to Penobscot from New York in 1971, David Henning Larson, whose art has been shown at the Portland Museum of Art and the Farnsworth Art Museum, had a successful career as an advertising executive, working with big-name clients like Volkswagen, Sony and Polaroid. But Anders Larson noted one irony. “He never tried to sell his art,” Larson said. “He used the art to develop conversations and dialog. Probably to a fault, from the family perspective, he was a terrible salesperson.” Larson said the family plans to offer new exhibits every two months or so. “It would be nice to sell some art,” he added. “But really our philosophy of running this place is to try to bring him to a wider audience.” David Henning Larson’s work can be seen online at Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

diture for 2012 is $8.88 million, an increase of about $341,000 over the current fiscal year. She said the additional spending will allow an approximate 2 percent increase in payroll, building repairs and equipment replacement. In addition, the Fort Williams maintenance budget will increase by $80,000,

the increase would be the first in the past two years. She said the proposed hike would increase municipal taxes by $6 per $100,000 of assessed value. Lennon, reading from a prepared statement during a council meeting on Monday, said the total projected expen-

people whole, fresh, organic food to eat,” said Helen Slocum, a member of the collaborative. “It’s a great sense of accomplishment.” The proposal is one of two agricultural initiatives the council will discuss in the coming weeks. Mayor Rosemarie De Angelis said she will soon pitch a proposal to create a farmers market in the city, which she hopes to have up and running this year. “I think it’s going to fit nicely with this community garden, conceptually,” De Angelis said. “There’s some real energy around it.” Slocum said her group is interested in creating community gardens in response to overwhelming demand for the limited space the city offers in Hinckley Park. Siggi Espe, the administrative assistant in the Parks and Recreation office, said the city only has 35 garden plots at Hinckley Park, which are leased for $25 a year. The plots vary in size from 120 square feet to 64 square feet and smaller,

she said. Espe said there are 16 people waiting for plots in the community garden, which was started in 1992 by a volunteer group, but taken over by the city in 2004. Slocum said the Community Garden Collective would like to create between 30 and 50 plots behind Hamlin School, including two raised beds that would be handicapped accessible. The group, which is in the process of getting its non-profit status, would charge between $25 and $35 per plot. Slocum said the money will be used to pay for water, which unlike the gardens at Hinckley Park, will be easily accessible. Slocum said she became familiar with community gardens when she lived in the Jamaca Plain neighborhood in Boston. She said the gardens there produced more than food; it produced a sense of community. “It helps bring people together of all ages,” Slocum said. “It tends to have neighborhood monitoring; people watch


bringing it to $100,000 for maintenance and upkeep. “With any luck, the private fundraising might match that or come close, and we can begin to invest in some of the capital projects and expenditures that were discussed at some length last fall,” she said. Although investment income and other revenues continue to decline, Lennon said halfway through the fiscal year the town is in “excellent financial shape.”

“For the first time ever, more than half the taxes have been paid at the six-month mark in the fiscal year,” she said. “It stands at 50.3 percent as of January 1.” The council is expected to review the projected municipal budget in early spring.

each other’s plots and watch the property around. They kind of keep an eye on everything.” Slocum said the group approached the city last October to ask about potential garden locations. They drove to each plot before choosing the Hamlin School, which has access to water and good sunlight. The group also considered prior land use, avoiding areas that may have contaminated soils, she said. But De Angelis noted that the selected location is also close to the homes of the

members of the collective. She said she hopes the group will make good on their intention to expand the gardens to the Brick Hill area, if the Hamilin proposal is approved and successful. “They’re looking for ways to expand it so it encompasses the city as a whole,” she said. The Jan. 24 meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Center.
