School Board blinks in budget standoff with City Council

Banner day at Holy Cross

By Amber Cronin SOUTH PORTLAND — After refusing to budge Monday night, the School Board Wednesday whittled down its proposed budget for fiscal year 2013. In what board member Jeff Selser called a “feisty” workshop, the board found places to make cuts in its proposed operating budget. “It was a very difficult meeting,” Selser said Thursday. “There wasn’t a general agreement, so we had to keep working at it and working at it until we found some combination of changes that the majority of the board was the least uncomfortTiM.GREENwAy./.FOR.ThE.FORECASTER

able with.” In a joint workshop on Monday night, the School Board presented the City Council with a budget increase of $762,400, or 2.2 percent, to $40 million, in the operating budget for 2013. Members said everything in the budget was “mission critical.” “We strongly believe the budget is in the best interest of the students of South Portland,” Tappan Fitzgerald, the School Board chairman, said. But on Wednesday the board cut $136,000 by replacing $50,000 of the tax need with surplus cash and cutting $86,000 See page 27

Scarborough budget heads to final council vote By Mario Moretto SCARBOROUGH — The final iteration of the fiscal year 2013 budget totals about $1.84 million less than the original March proposal. The Finance Committee and School Board have been slicing away at the budget for the past month, resulting in a new net budget – the amount that will have to be raised by taxes – of about $49.9 million. That’s less than the nearly $51.8 million proposed by Town Manager Tom Hall in March, but still amounts to a 7.33 percent increase over fiscal 2012.

The budget cuts will save the average Scarborough taxpayer about $162 in property taxes compared to the original plan, although residents would still see a 90-cent increase in the property tax rate, from $13.03 per $1,000 of property value to $13.93 per $1,000. The bulk of savings came from the School Department, which removed $1.8 million from its original tax request by cutting a proposed 9.86 percent budget hike down to a 4.96 percent increase.

Sales of prescription painkillers spike in greater Portland By Matt Hongoltz-Hetling PORTLAND — In 2010, Maine doctors prescribed 1,100 pounds of powerful painkillers like Vicodin and Percocet to their patients – more than triple the amount they prescribed just 10 years ago.

Carolyn Wallace, a Portlandbased drug and alcohol counselor, said that fully half of the people she treats for addiction are hooked on painkillers. The source of the drug is no secret. “Almost to a client, they start

out with a prescription,” she said. Tom Kivler, director of the Division of Behavioral Health at Brunswick’s Midcoast Hospital, said that the majority of Maine’s painkiller addicts get their drugs from a doctor, either directly,

or through a friend or family member. “Only 5 percent get it from the Internet or a drug dealer,” he said. For local communities along Maine’s coast, prescriptions for oxycodone and hydrocodone

Bertocci is a man with many skills who has followed a career path with many twists and turns. He has been as a firefighter, EMT and assistant chief for the Bath Fire Department; managed the harvest and processing of seaweeds for micronutrient and pharmaceutical markets; consulted in marine algae harvest and processing; worked as an electrician and mechanic at the Royal River Boatyard, and served as a manager for product support at a Brunswick-based firm that has developed vehicle-mounted electrical generators. A chat with him suggests that the word “chutzpah” might be added to the list of adjectives that describe him. “I was running my own consulting firm in the mid-1990s – Algaetech Seaweed Solutions – and someone called to ask if I could design a website. After saying ‘Yes,’ I rushed out and bought the book ‘HTML for Dummies’ so I could learn how to do it,” Bertocci said. That project was successful, and he ultimately designed a website called “Gateway to the Seaweed,” which attracted visitors from around the world. During that time, he also made several presentations to school groups and the wider community on issues surrounding marine algae. “I participated in the establishment of one of the first EPA-certified watermonitoring programs in the country in 1992,” Bertocci noted with pride.

Budgets draw praise at Cape Elizabeth hearing By David Harry CAPE ELIZABETH — It took almost as long for Town Council Chairwoman Sara Lennon to direct people to the Planning Board meeting Monday as it did for councilors to hear comments about the proposed $32.2 million combined fiscal 2013 budgets. The Planning Board meeting was in an adjacent conference room, while council chambers resounded with support for the budgets in a hearing that lasted less than 15 minutes.

Councilors will vote on the municipal and school budgets on May 14. Their vote will enact the $8.86 million municipal budget drafted by Town Manager Michael McGovern. If they approve the $21.76 million school budget, it will move on to a June 12 voter referendum. The total impact of the municipal, school and county obligations is expected to increase the property tax rate from $15.18 per $1,000 of assessed value to $15.85. Council comments Monday were limited to praise from Lennon and an overview

Hinckley Drive likely destination for S. Portland farmers market By Amber Cronin SOUTH PORTLAND — A final decision won’t be made until May, but indications at a City Council workshop Monday were that the farmers market will operate this year on Hinckley Drive. Last year, farmers who participated in the market reported losing money, they believe, because the market was in Thomas Knight Park at the end of Waterman Drive and Ocean Street. This year, the South Portland Farmers Market Association proposed moving the market to Hinckley Drive, along Mill Creek Park, an area members feel will provide more visibility and foot traffic. One proposal has 24 farmers and their stands occupying about half the street, from Ocean Street to the first curb cut in front of Town and Country Federal Credit Union. The second would close all of Hinckley Drive and allow 41 farmers to sell their wares. While the move to Hinckley Drive is not ideal for some local businesses, four of the six city councilors spoke in favor of the move. Mayor Patti Smith said that while she will support the market wherever it is held, she is not sure where it will be most successful. “I’m concerned about the parking,” Smith said. “It’s going to be a learning curve like it was last year.” The major concern with either Hinckley proposal has to do with parking and traffic problems associated with cutting off a

major access road to the Hannaford supermarket on Ocean Street. Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis, who has been an advocate for the market, said people tolerate Hinckley Drive being closed one day a year for Art in the Park. But she doesn’t believe they will be receptive to the weekly closure on Thursdays from 2-7 p.m. De Angelis reiterated her desire for a large sign directing traffic to the market, wherever it ends up. That discussion was tabled at a meeting in early March. But Caitlin Jordan, head of the South Portland Farmers Market Association, said the association does not want a large sign. It prefers A-frame signs at both ends of Hinckley Drive, which have already been approved. Jordan also said the farmers are anxious continued page 27

from council finance committee Chairman Frank Governali. “I want to give a quick thanks to the many many people who worked creatively and collaboratively to put together what I think is an excellent budget,” Lennon said. Governali said the budgets require a 4.4 percent property tax increase with spending projected to increase 2.6 percent. The effect on a median-valued home of $314,000 is a $210 annual tax increase. “The underlying objective was to maintain existing services while constraining spending increases,” Governali said. “The town continued to invest in its capital stew-

ardship program, allocating $723,000 to long-term investment needs.” No one from the public spoke about the municipal budget, but four residents expressed wholehearted support for the proposed school spending. School Superintendent Meredith Nadeau, board members and district staff succeeded in recognizing what was important in funding local education, Trish Brigham, a Rock Crest Drive resident and co-president of the nonprofit Cape Elizabeth Education Foundation, said. Governali shares the CEEF leadership post with Brigham. “I think the School Board and district

Scarborough organic lawn care policy back on the books By Mario Moretto SCARBOROUGH — A day after town councilors seemingly replaced a 7-monthold organic pest management policy with a traditional, chemical-friendly plan, the town was back to the chem-free approach. In an email to councilors, Town Manager Tom Hall said approval of the new policy was invalid because it didn’t meet voting requirements contained in the Town Charter. The charter says four affirmative votes are needed for final passage, but at the April 18 meeting, only three councilors – Jim Benedict, Jessica Holbrook and Judy Roy – voted for the new policy. Councilor Richard Sullivan recused himself and Councilors Karen D’Andrea and Carol Rancourt refused to vote. “In light of this, I view the existing

policy, adopted September 21, 2011, to be in effect and will act in accordance thereto,” Hall said. The traditional pest management policy proposed by Sullivan on April 18 was criticized by D’Andrea and Rancourt, and by many residents, several of whom have formed a group called Citizens for a Green Scarborough. On April 20, after hearing that the prior vote was invalid, members of that group were elated. “This was the 12th-hour miracle in our view,” said Eddie Woodin, a local business owner, philanthropist and member of Citizens for a Green Scarborough.

The organic policy now in effect was drafted during a year of work by the town’s Ordinance Committee and members of Citizens for a Green Scarborough. It calls for the use of chemical-free techniques, except in emergency situations, when traditional pesticides could be applied at the town manager’s discretion. It also created a seven-member board to oversee the organic program and advise the town manager. When Sullivan proposed replacing the policy, first in March and again last week, pro-organic residents said the council was throwing away all their work with a single vote. Sullivan’s proposal would have removed the organics mandate and replaced it with continued page 27

Pesticides fracas brings council rules into question SCARBOROUGH — While the town’s pesticide policy issue has, at least for now, been decided, questions about council procedures and rules raised during the month-long discussion remain unanswered: • In an email to councilors, Town Manager Tom Hall pointed out that by “abstaining” in the 3-0 vote on April 18, Councilors Karen D’Andrea and Carol Rancourt violated a rule requiring all councilors, except those who have been recused, to cast votes. • Rancourt has accused Councilor Richard Sullivan of failing to file a disclosure statement about his brother, Dan Sullivan, who has a $40,000 contract with the town for lawn mowing services. Town Council rules require such disclosures, which Sullivan admitted to not filing. Hall has said that no councilor has filed a disclosure statement since the rule was enacted in 2009. • Citizens for a Green Scarborough (and their attorney) still claim Sullivan was not eligible to propose his new policy in the first place because of council rules regarding “reconsideration.” However, a town attorney gave Sullivan the OK and said he was within the the rules. • Council Chairman Ron Ahlquist and Sullivan questioned whether proper parliamentary procedure was followed in voting on Sullivan’s proposal. They speculated that when Councilor Jessica Holbrook called for a vote, she was simply “moving the question” – calling for a vote to end debate, not a vote on the policy. Holbrook, though, said she wanted a decision on the policy, and stands by the 3-0 vote. Violations of council rules could lead to public or private censure hearings. But neither the censure process nor possible punishments for rule-breakers are outlined in the council Rules, Policies and Procedures manual or the Town Charter. That left Ahlquist, who did not attend last week’s meeting, trying to figure out what to do. “If you look at (the policy regarding censure), it doesn’t seem to mean anything,” Ahlquist said. He said Friday that the Rules Committee would address the holes in the council’s manual, but that it would probably have to wait until other, more pressing business is handled. “I wish this would all go away so we can concentrate on what I want to concentrate on, which is the budget,” he said. — Mario Moretto

Boston Marathon a win-win situation for Piers, Barry Comment on this story at:

By Gillian Graham

http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/120929

As Sheri Piers put mile after mile behind her on April 16, Kristin Barry raced around Boston on four wheels to keep her training partner updated on her position in the Boston Marathon.

while Piers favors longer distances. “The things she enjoys the most, I enjoy the least,” Barry said. “It’s really a good balance,” Piers said. “We just work so well together. We’re great company for each other. We’ve developed a strong friendship through this.”

So by the time Piers crossed the finish line, she knew she was the first American woman to complete the 116th annual road race. She finished in 2:41:35 on a sweltering day that led many runners to skip the race. She finished 10th overall and second in the master’s division.

Piers trains with Barry, who lives in Scarborough. She said she has run the Boston Marathon five or six times and says it is “good motivation” to keep up her training through the winter.

“I just felt happy to be there,” she said. Barry said she was also happy to be in Boston for the marathon, even if that involved a slightly hectic race around the city to keep her friend updated. With her father, Larry Pierce, driving, Barry was free to hop out of the car at various points, sprint onto the race course and wildly wave her arms to get Piers’ attention. “Each time she just kept moving up,” Barry said. “When you’re in a race you don’t always have a sense of where you are.” “She ran a tremendous race,” she added. Piers said she coped with temperatures that reached the high 80s by running under hoses and dumping cups of water on her head to stay cool. “I think I hit every water stop out there,” she said. Barry said “it was almost like the heat was a good thing” for Piers. “She does well in grueling conditions,” Barry said. “She just takes it in stride.”

and six or seven shorter races each year. In January she traveled to Houston to participate in the Olympic trials, where she finished 24th overall and first in the master’s division. Locally, she frequently tops the field of the annual TD Bank Beach to Beacon 10K in Cape Elizabeth. While she may travel out of state for races, Piers covers much of the greater Portland area on her regular early morning training runs with Barry. During peak training, Piers logs 100 to 120 miles a week, most of them on outdoors. She occasionally runs indoors on a treadmill while she catches up on the news or listens to music. Piers and Barry said their training is more valuable and fun because they do it together. Barry prefers short, fast races,

“It’s probably one of the hardest courses to run,” Piers said. “It beats you up a bit physically. (But) I seem to go back to it every year.”

Piers was unaware of the confusion until well afterwards, but said it wouldn’t have mattered to her either way.

“It felt great. It was not something I expected to do,” the 40-year-old nurse practitioner and mother of three said after she returned home to Falmouth.

There was some confusion after the race when results posted by the Boston Athletic Association incorrectly listed Mayumi Fujita as a U.S. citizen, which would have bumped Piers out of the top American woman position. Race officials later determined Fujita is a Japanese citizen.

Barry said she also enjoys coaching the Cheverus High School boys’ cross country team with Piers.

News briefs S.P. police: Suspect hid cocaine in his mouth SOUTH PORTLAND — A traffic stop for a suspected fake inspection sticker resulted in two people being jailed on drug charges, police said Wednesday. Sheryl Wallace, 45, and Dennis Splude, 55, both transients, Splude were arrested on Main Street Tuesday night after Officer Scott Corbett pulled over the vehicle driven by Wallace. Corbett believed Splude, who was in the passenger seat, Wallace was hiding drugs in his mouth and attempted to search him, but Splude resisted and fought with Corbett, police said. Wallace allegedly attempted to interfere with the search, but stopped when a passerby stopped to check on the situation. After other officers arrived, packets

suspected to contain crack cocaine were taken from Splude’s mouth. Splude was hospitalized because of concerns he may have ingested the drugs during the search. More drug-related evidence was found in Wallace’s vehicle, police said. Splude and Wallace were taken to Cumberland County Jail in Portland. Splude was charged with possession of crack cocaine, refusing to submit to arrest and falsifying physical evidence. Wallace was charged with displaying a fictitious inspection sticker, obstructing government administration, possession of a scheduled drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

N.Y. men arrested in South Portland drug bust SOUTH PORTLAND — A New York man is under armed guard at Maine Medical Center in Portland as he recovers from injuries sustained when he allegedly jumped out of a second-story window in an effort to evade police. Police said Anthony Calderon, 30, Cordero of Brooklyn, N.Y., jumped from a window at the Days Inn hotel on Maine Mall Road around noon on Tuesday. Officers were called to the hotel to investigate the odor of marijuana. Instead, they found a suspected drug trafficking operation. Calderon was arrested in the parking lot. South Portland police officers and agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency allegedly found 200 bags of heroin, 50 grams of cocaine, $7,000 cash and a handgun with the serial numbers filed off in his hotel room. They also found a second man, Davidson Cordero, 22, also of Brooklyn, hiding in a nearby room that had been left open for housecleaning. Cordero was arrested on a charge of criminal trespass, and was released after he posted bail.

Water district projects coming to Cape roads

CAPE ELIZABETH — Two Portland Water District projects will affect local roads through mid summer. On Monday, crews from Gorham Sand & Gravel will begin replacing a water main on Smugglers Cove Road. A temporary main will be installed before excavation begins May 7 to replace the current 2-inch main with a 4-inch main. The work is expected to take three to four weeks, Public Works Director Robert Malley said. Once the Smugglers Cove project is completed, work to replace a water main along Scott Dyer Road from the lower intersection of Brentwood Avenue to Spurwink Avenue will begin. The work will limit traffic to one way at a time. Drivers are encouraged to use Route Fowler Road or Route 77 to get to the recycling center on Spurwink Avenue.

These boots are (not) made for walking This is day number three for me in New York City, but if you asked my feet, they’d say we’ve been here at least a few months. When heading to NY, I consistently make the mistake – or perhaps choose to maintain the fantasy – that women stroll around looking as if they just walked out of a fashion magazine: the trendy shoes, the flawlessly No Sugar fitted skirts, the dresses blowing in the Manhattan breeze. I imagine they’ve put some serious thought into their wardrobe choices – and they most certainly don’t sweat, or have BandAids covering the blisters on their dainty feet inside of their Manolo Blahniks. When readying for an adventure here, I pack accordingly – which means one thing: my cowboy boots. Of course then I Sandi Amorello arrive and after one day of strolling up and down city streets and pounding pavement, I’m nearly reduced to tears from the pain of wearing inappropriate footwear. I’m clearly being punished for my vanity, because the truth is, you cannot walk 127 blocks in cowboy boots. Actual cowboys never walked that far; they rode horses most of the time.

Added

Now, my cowboy boots are a cherished possession, and they never fail to make me feel fashionable and at least slightly hip. Of course, using the word “hip” clearly makes me unhip, but please try to work with me here. On my 30th birthday, Drew gave me a pair of very cool black boots (of the cowboy variety) from a store in Boston. He’d been shooting a commercial downtown, stumbled upon a boot shop and thought they would be the perfect gift. Upon receiving said boots, I immediately ascertained that my husband knew not one iota about my taste or what would constitute a good birthday gift for the woman he’d known for over a decade. I pretended to like them, but deep down I thought he was somewhat of an idiot and couldn’t believe he hadn’t just bought me a simple piece of jewelry. Something I could wear every day and show off to my girlfriends. Being age 30 and childless meant that I was obviously still immature and completely out of my mind. Of course, years later, I wore those boots enough to break them in and they became my most prized possession. And I marveled that Drew could have known that a girl from New Jersey had an inner cowgirl longing to wear boots with her pearls, and just hadn’t tapped into that part of herself yet. He had bought for me what turned out to be not merely a gift, but a life transforming one. Two years after his death, when the boots were about 13 years old and had gone through numerous re-solings, I finally had to break down and buy another pair. The

exact same ones. And now those are getting up there in age, as well. My point is, they are my comfy, broken-in footwear of choice. And they make me feel fashionable and have become one of my trademarks of sorts, and so I generally wear them in situations that might, perhaps, find other women – possibly smarter, more practical women – wearing sneakers. Or orthopedically correct shoes from Sweden. Or something designed by “Dr. Scholl.” But not me. So here I am in New York, and I think I may have logged more miles in three days than I’ve logged on my walks on the beaches of Maine in the past three years. And each day I’ve had to come home around 2 p.m. and give my feet the chance to recuperate. Yesterday, I walked so much that I acquired blisters in places I didn’t know you could get them. Band-Aids are my friend. And the funny part is, I’ve realized that all of those glamorously attired women don’t actually walk anywhere. They take cabs. And go the gym to get their exercise. Duh. Today I saw an ad for a pair of white, high-top, comfy sneakers with a hot pink high-heeled pump printed on the side. Apparently, I’m not the only one here who wants to have her cake and eat it too. I think I may have found my next birthday present. No Sugar Added is Cape Elizabeth resident Sandi Amorello’s biweekly take on life, love, death, dating and single parenting.

The farcical debt debate Ginn family responds to Cape Elizabeth complaints As the family of the recently deceased David B. Ginn of the Sea Barn Road rentals, we feel that we can no longer allow our neighbors and the media to defame our loved one’s name and homestead. Over the last several months, the renting of our home has been under intense scrutiny by our neighbors. The tales of wild parties and unruly tenants have gotten taller and taller – although there is no public record of complaints in the two seasons we have been renting thus far. Our town is not a party town, it’s a family town, and that’s the type of people that come to vacation here. Families that come to rent our scenic house in the Cape Elizabeth suburbs are carefully screened and the quality of tenants has been exceptional. All of the examples that have been given in the papers were during the early, learning-curve stages of renting, and have been grossly exaggerated. Frankly, it’s a bit odd for newly arrived renters to see a neighbor of ours running across the driveway to take pictures and document the alleged nuisances, let alone interrogating our guests as to their lengths of stay and purpose of visit. This is harassment and violates our property rights. Like many homeowners presently challenged in this economy, we are forced to find alternative sources of income and for us that includes renting our home. William Ginn Cape Elizabeth

Lawsuit isn’t helping South Portland Albert DiMillo needs to understand that his lawsuit is the reason South Portland taxpayer money is being spent to settle the health insurance benefit issue. His lawsuit was totally unnecessary and challenged the City Council to take on the cost to defend itself. A little extra work on his part to collect the signatures needed for a referendum would have given the voters a chance to decide this issue. And, while a referendum will never resolve the legal issue Mr. DiMillo is currently pursuing, it will allow the public to reaffirm or remove this long-standing benefit. Something a legal decision may not do. While I personally believe councilors were authorized to receive the health insurance option by a vote of the council in the 1970s, I now feel that the city needs to resolve the questions and controversy that linger. Mr. DiMillo, please do the right thing, end this costly process and with Mr. Crosby’s help collect the signatures you need. Linda Boudreau South Portland

Brace yourselves. We’re about to enter a season of protracted angst and anger over the national debt and the federal budget deficit. We are entering the campaign season, and so we can expect outrage – outrage, I say – over the profligacy of our government, the irresponsibility of the Obama administration and the immorality of saddling our children and our grandchildren with debt. We will be admonished that it is absolutely necessary to cut government expenditures and therefore to live within Global our means. We will hear of the woes to befall us unless we eviscerate “non-essential” programs and restore sanity in Washington. We will be reminded that every household must balance its budget (this will be accompanied by imagery involving a kitchen table and a family making “tough decisions”) and that we should demand nothing less of our government. For the sake of our country, my fellow Americans, we Perry B. Newman must stop the bleeding. There are at least two fallacies associated with these rants. The first relates to the nature of our debt, and the second relates to the so-called evils of debt in the first place. In this column we’ll look at the question of government expenditures, which, according to most debt critics, are the principle cause of our indebtedness. My take on the other fallacies will have to wait until next month. Our government “expends” revenue in essentially two ways: first, by actually spending money on goods and services, and second, by foregoing revenue the government would otherwise collect through taxes, absent a policy decision, such as a tax break, not to do so. The first kind of expenditure is familiar to us and is what deficit hawks in Congress decry the loudest. Everything the government spends money to acquire or provide should, in the eyes of the deficit hawks, be brought under the microscope. We simply spend too much. But take a look at where the federal government spends our money. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, in 2011 some 20 percent of the entire federal budget, or $718 billion, was spent on defense and international security. That number includes $159 billion to support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Another 20 percent, or $731 billion, paid for Social Security, which provided retirement benefits to 36.5 million retired workers, 2.9 million spouses and children of retired workers, 6.3 million surviving children and spouses of deceased workers and 10.6 million disabled workers and their dependents. Finally, three health insurance programs, Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, comprised another 21 percent of the budget, totaling $769 billion. Of that $769 billion, nearly two thirds, $486 billion, went to Medicare. Add these three categories of expenditures together and you account for more than 60 percent of all federal spending.

Matters

What is being done to reduce these allegedly bloated figures? Well, the Obama administration has been trying to end our military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. If we could somehow extricate ourselves entirely, we’d save $159 billion annually. Efforts to reduce our involvement, however, are accompanied by howls of outrage that we are “cutting and running,” that the mission isn’t accomplished, that if we pull out Iraq and Afghanistan will devolve into even more chaotic environments, and so on. The Obama administration has also been trying to manage the burgeoning amounts the government pays for health care. The Supreme Court is currently considering the constitutionality of the so-called “individual mandate,” but lost in the frenzied debate is one of “ObamaCare’s” principle objectives – lowering the cost of health care over time by spreading the risk, and through other cost control incentives. Try having a rational debate on this one. Death panels, anyone? Efforts to tinker with Social Security and Medicare are also doomed. Retirees point out that they’ve worked hard all their lives, that they damn well expect to receive their benefits and that, by the way, they vote. Others argue that eligibility for Social Security is sacrosanct and that it wouldn’t be fair to move the goal posts for those now in the workforce. Strike three! What’s left? The remaining 40 percent of the federal budget is spent on the social safety net (13 percent), veterans’ and federal retirees’ benefits (7 percent), interest on the debt (6 percent), transportation infrastructure (3 percent), education (2 percent), research (1 percent) and all other expenses (7 percent). Any rational person would look at the two elephants in the room, defense and health care, and posit that we can achieve some big savings. Let’s end these wars. Let’s get a grip on health care costs. But deficit hawks focus instead on cutting programs for the neediest Americans, who are, not coincidentally, those with the least political power. Yet safety net programs comprise just 13 percent of the budget. Or they seek to reduce the government’s health care expenditures by offering consumers vouchers with which we can purchase health insurance coverage. But no one explains how vouchers will do anything to contain costs, unless that’s accomplished simply by capping the government’s exposure once we’ve exhausted our vouchers. You might ask, what about tax expenditures, i.e., the revenue we might raise by eliminating some tax breaks? Or how about raising some taxes on certain segments of the population? We’ll get to those in a future column, but I think you know how that discussion goes. Next time we’ll discuss whether debt and deficits are really the boogiemen some make them out to be. Until then, however, you have to wonder whether those most vehemently opposed to debt are those least disposed to do anything meaningful about it, unless it comes at the expense of those least able to wield political power and influence.

County commissioner explains increase A recent article in the Forecaster reviewed the plight of the town of Scarborough and their 2013 budget. The article outlined the various areas of increased spending, including the school budget of $39 million, the municipal budget of about $27 million and the c o u n t y bu d get represents about 3 percent of the total of just over $2 million. The 5 percent increase in the county budget is based on state valuation of the municipalities within the county, and depending on increases and or decreases of each municipality, affects the individual municipal share of the county budget. The total increase for Scarborough from the county is $99,598, less than 1 percent of the total town budget increase. Valuation represented $58,704 of that and county increases were $40,984. The county budget is scrutinized annually by a Finance Committee made up of municipal council members from each of the five commissioner districts. They review the budget over the course of several weeks, and approve it before sending it to county commissioners for final approval. County government provides many services to our taxpayers, and does so for a cost of less than $2 per thousand. The county budget has averaged less than 2 percent per year increase over the past five years. Cumberland County recognizes that the municipalities have to provide many necessary services for their citizens and we continue to help by providing regional services on a consolidated basis, serving our taxpayers efficiently and effectively, and protecting our citizens. We welcome your comments and suggestions regarding all issues impacting county government. Commissioner Neil Jamieson Scarborough

ALEC empowers the power crazy Those smart ALECs are still at it. Back on Nov. 11, 2011, I wrote about how Gov. Paul LePage’s administration was taking its agenda straight from the playbook of the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative lobbying group closely allied with the ultraconservative Koch brothers. Now ALEC is all over The Universal the news as Maine’s Majority, the group that arose in opposition to LePage’s business-before-people agenda, has been calling attention to the ALEC fingerprints all over bills submitted to the 125th Legislature. In a March 15 report entitled “Who Is Writing Maine’s Laws?,” Maine’s Majority reported that 20 ALEC bills had been submitted Edgar Allen Beem to the Legislature in the past 14 months. Chief among them are those related to the administration’s education reforms, namely privatizing public schools by creating charter schools and allowing public tax dollars to subsidize religious schools. Then there’s the newly enacted vigilante bill that prohibits state officials from disarming citizens during a state of emergency. Really? Was that a big concern of Maine citizens? There’s also the regulatory takings bill, so broad, unprecedented and complex that even LePage’s own attorney general had to oppose it, otherwise we’d have property owners suing left and right any time a new land use or zoning ordinance was enacted. And now we have ALEC leading the charge for a new Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) fight. ALEC has been a shadowy background player in conservative politics for decades, but the rise of the tempestuous tea party has apparently emboldened it to step out of the shadows to start dictating social and economic policies to elected officials. Maine’s Majority identified eight members of the Legislature as ALEC members (Reps. Cushing, Hamper and Harmon; Sens. Langley, Plowman, Rector, Rosen, and Thibodeau) and another 13 who have introduced ALEC copycat bills.

Notebook

Nationally, the Center for Media and Democracy has drawn attention to the organization with its ALEC Exposed project, and there is an ALECWATCH website that calls the group “Corporate America’s Secret Political Arm.” The issue that generated the most mainstream media coverage has been ALEC’s promotion of Stand Your Ground laws, such as the one in Florida at the heart of the Trayvon Martin killing. ALEC has blamed “liberal bullies” for attacking its supposedly benign free-market agenda and scaring of corporate contributors. If Shoot Your Neighbor laws are free-market policies, then I’m pleased to be a liberal bully. There is nothing wrong, of course, with either party or any politician using model legislation to draft bills. It’s done all the time. What we are seeing nationally and here in Maine, however, is not simply a Republican subscription to ALEC model legislation. We are witnessing the remote control of our elected representatives by far right ideologues in the employ of billionaires. This Republican administration isn’t about problem-solving or even addressing real Maine issues; it’s about doing the bidding of its masters. If LePage had been truthful and forthcoming about the agenda he would pursue if elected, he would not be in office today. Remember LePage pooh-poohing expressed concerns about his positions on social issues during the campaign, insisting he was just all about job creation? Who knew that job creation meant privatizing public education, gutting environmental regulations, disbanding the Land Use Regulation Commission, attacking public employees and organized labor at every turn, reducing workers compensation benefits, throwing tens of thousand people off MaineCare, running a private four-lane highway through the woods, allowing guns in the Statehouse, and letting landowners sue if they’re not permitted to build a Walmart in their cow pasture? Who knew? Boss Paul, that’s who. What we have been seeing in the 125th Legislature is a power-crazy Republican Party trying to enact everything on the right-wing wish list in one session. Why? Because they know they’ll be out on their keisters as soon as the good people of Maine realize whose interests they are serving. Hint: it’s not ours.

Obituaries

Philip Alan Mosley, 56: Enthusiastic Special Olympian SOUTH PORTLAND — Philip Alan Mosley, 56, died April 22 at St. Joseph’s Manor after a brief illness. He was born in Portland on June 6, 1955, a son of Carroll and June Littlefield Mosley. Mosley attended Prides Training School in South Portland. He was employed at Goodwill Industries and was later involved with the Community Skills Program at Goodwill. For several years he was an enthusiastic participant in the Special Olympics of Maine. He was a lifelong communicant of St. John the Evangelist Church.

Catherine, of Portland and Thomas M. Mosley and his wife, Sharon, of Windham; several nieces, nephews and great nieces and great nephews; brotherin-law David Stevens and his wife, Marlene Hayes, of Greenland, N.H.; uncle George Littlefield of Brooks; and several cousins including one special cousin, Amy Petit. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at Community Skills for their years of dedication to improve his quality of life. They would also like to thank the caregivers and staff at St. Joseph’s Rehabilitation and Residence

for their remarkable care in providing comfort for Phil.

Zac Ryan’s Heart Story

He was predeceased by his parents and a sister, Laura Stevens. Mosley is survived by sisters Marcia Hubbard and her husband, Everett, of Hannibal, N.Y., and Brenda J. Cunningham and her husband, Alan, of South Portland; brothers John J. Mosley and his wife, Delores, of Colorado Springs, Colo., David J. Mosley and his wife,

“These past 4 years, I have watched my son grow from a child into a young man, achieving goals he once thought were impossible. He is a happy, healthy, and active teenager living his life to the fullest, while being grateful for having the ability to do so.” – Kristine Amato, Zac’s mom

Zac had a tough time trying to live a normal life until he was finally diagnosed with heart disease at age 10. He was small in stature, had a small appetite and was easily fatigued. Despite many visits to doctors and specialists, no one could figure out what was wrong. At around 10 years old, he began fainting at school which prompted more exams. This time, a heart murmur was detected. As a precaution, Zac’s doctor suggested that he get checked by a pediatric cardiologist. An echocardiogram detected a large hole in his heart that was about half the size of his heart! Within days, Zac underwent a three-hour procedure to cover this hole. The surgery went longer than expected, but was successful. Zac’s mother says he has made remarkable progress since then. Now 14, Zac has gained weight and is participating in lots of activities that he could never do before. While she’s not sure if more surgery will be needed later in life, she is happy to finally know what is wrong and to see her son thrive.

Prom & Bridal Guide

April 27, 2012

Wedding themes can add up to extra fun Every couple wants their wedding to be memorable. The goal of planning a wedding is to create an experience that everyone will remember for years to come. For some couples, a theme wedding is the best way to accomplish just that. When it comes time to select a theme, the day the wedding takes place may dictate the theme. For example, if the wedding takes place on Halloween, the ideas for the theme are easy. Many other couples choose a theme that highlights a specific interest

or hobby or something that is dear to them. Here are some popular wedding themes. • Holiday: The Christmas season lends itself well to wedding planning. The colors (red, green, gold) are already established, and most churches and buildings are already decked out in holiday finery, cutting down on the amount of flowers and embellishments couples need. Because the holiday season is so busy and a popular time for socializing, couples who want to tie the knot during this time of year should

knot in Las Vegas but want to ensure all their loved ones can attend can recreate the magic of Vegas wherever they may be. Casino-inspired games and big buffet meals can make guests feel like they have stepped into a casino on the famed Vegas Strip. In addition, an Elvis impersonator is essential to a Vegas wedding. • TV show: Some couples elevate certain television shows to cult status. Whether it’s “Friends” or “Star Trek,” popular television shows have been transformed into festive wedding themes. Whether the idea is to go daring and exchange vows in costume or simply name reception tables according to characters or show locations, couples can include a little television fun into the event. • Interest or passion: Love to climb mountains? Avid about scuba diving? Couples who share a particular interest can include elements of this sport or hobby into their wedding. Invitations and decor can hint at the theme, and then special activities can further enhance it. Fish bowls as centerpieces may call to mind underwater adventures, while surfboard-shaped invites may set the scene for a beachside party. Theme weddings can add an extra spice to the festivities and incorporate couples’ interests into the event -- making it even more special.

Spring sports season off to successful start

MIke Strout / For the ForecaSter

South Portland sophomore Olivia Indorf steps into a first inning pitch and sends it over the fence to give the Red Riots an early 2-0 lead in their showdown at defending state champion Scarborough Tuesday.

MIke Strout / For the ForecaSter

(Ed. Note: For the complete Scarborough-South Portland softball and Cape ElizabethFalmouth boys’ lacrosse game stories, including additional photos and detailed box scores, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer The 2012 spring sports season has started and virtually every local club will have participated in at least one game or meet by the end of the week. Here’s a glimpse at what you might have missed on the diamonds, courts and lacrosse fields (no track results were available at press time).

Boys’ lacrosse-Capers make a statement Cape Elizabeth has the proudest boys’ lacrosse tradition in the state, so when the Capers play a team that others perceive to be their superior, they tend to rise to the occasion. That was the case Saturday night when Cape Elizabeth (which dominated Lake Region in its opener, 20-0), hosted defending Class B state champion Falmouth, already pegged in many quarters as the best team in the state this spring. For one night at least, that

wasn’t the case. The Capers never trailed, controlled the faceoff circle early behind the efforts of junior Adam Haversat, took the lead for good on freshman Griffin Thoreck’s third period goal, got three second half tallies from senior standout Timmy Lavallee and seven clutch saves from new senior goalie Will Goduti en route to an 8-6 victory. “It’s a great win,” said Lavallee, who will play at Providence College next year. “It’s always our biggest game. It determines homefield advantage. The seniors wanted this one. I love being the underdog coming into a game like this. We wanted this one.” “It was a good game,” said Raymond. “We talked before we came out that we don’t get a lot of really good games to play so we had to make the most of it and put our best effort forward. We did a nice job defensively. We played really well. Offensively, we played well at times. We did a nice job on ground balls.” Cape Elizabeth was home with North Yarmouth Academy Wednesday and goes to Waynflete Wednesday of next week. The Capers will only get

better. “We have to work on catching and throwing and ground balls,” Haversat said. “We have to keep our heads up,” Lavallee said. “We come out working as hard as we can every practice. We have to keep pushing and improve as the season goes along.” Raymond knows that that there are many battles left to fight. “If we win both times (over Falmouth), then we’ll have homefield,” Raymond said, alluding to the rematch May 16 in Falmouth. “If we split, we have a chance. When they get their players back, they’ll be stronger.” Defending Class A state champion Scarborough has excelled in the early going as it goes for its third successive title. The Red Storm opened with a 17-1 win at Westbrook, as junior John Wheeler had four goals and six assists and senior John Blaisdell added three goals. Wheeler scored five more in a 12-0 home victory over Biddeford. Scarborough then improved to 3-0 and extended its two-year win streak to 14 games with a 17-2 win at Bonny Eagle

behind five goals from Wheeler, three from Blaisdell and two apiece from Luke Erwin, Scott Kostovik and Ryan Pallotta. The Red Storm was at South Portland Wednesday, visits North Yarmouth Academy Saturday at 11 a.m., in a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project, and hosts Deering Wednesday of next week. South Portland has been competitive, but dropped two of its first three contests. The Red Riots opened with a 10-4 loss at Marshwood. A 14-6 home win over Gorham followed as Thomas Leddy had five goals and Mike Salvatore added four. Saturday, South Portland hosted Cheverus in a taut affair. The Red Riots took a 1-0 lead on Alec Neal’s first period goal, drew even at 2-2 on Salvatore’s man-up goal in the second quarter, tied the game 3-3 on Cameron Andrews’ goal in the third and forced one final deadlock at 4-4 when Andrews scored with 7:21 remaining, but the Stags scored with 4:01 to go and the Red Riots couldn’t answer. They did get a solid effort in goal

from freshman T-mo Hellier.

“Last game we couldn’t drop a ball if we had to and today, we couldn’t catch a ball if we had to,” said South Portland coach Tom Fiorini. “T-mo’s only a freshman. I might be biased and I know we have some goalies in this state who are good, but I think he could be the best in the state at his age. We’re going to have a nice year. The kids are coming along quicker than I thought they would. They’re young, but they’re good. They’re absorbing everything. I’m having a lot of fun. We’re going to grow up fast.”

The Red Riots hosted Scarborough Wednesday, visit traditional power Yarmouth Saturday and welcome Bonny Eagle Wednesday of next week.

The Red Storm looked to improve its two-year win streak to 13 games Thursday when it hosted Bonny Eagle. After going to defending Class B state champion Yarmouth Saturday, Scarborough is at South Portland Monday. The Red Riots finally opened their season Wednesday at Sanford. South Portland has a playoff rematch Saturday at Thornton Academy, then hosts Scarborough Monday. The teams haven’t played since May 16, 2005 (a 12-8 Red Storm win). In Western B, Cape Elizabeth has lived up to preseason billing. The Capers opened with a 19-8 home win over Greely, as junior Lauren Steidl had five

Softball-Scarborough beats SP in early season showdown When Scarborough and South Portland’s softball teams get together, fans usually expect a close, low scoring battle. That was far from the case Tuesday afternoon when the host Red Storm, the defending Class A state champion, and the Red Riots combined to put 20 runs on the board. South Portland got off to a good start when sophomore pitcher Olivia Indorf hit a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, but Scarborough roared back with four runs in the bottom half, then put the

“Starting off behind was weird to us because we weren’t expecting it, but we pulled through and worked hard together,” Murrell said. “(Mo) didn’t let it get to her. She stayed strong. We have a stacked lineup. It’s nice. You have to watch out for us.”

Scarborough senior ace Mo Hannan was far from sharp on the mound, but gutted out six innings and helped pace the onslaught with the bats by rapping two doubles, scoring twice and driving in a pair of runs. Sophomore catcher Megan Murrell made a highlight-reel catch of a foul ball and hit an opposite field home run and four other Scarborough hitters, juniors Erin Giles, Marissa O’Toole and Mary Redmond and sophomore Alyssa Williamson, all had multiple hits.

“My kids responded really well,” added longtime Scarborough coach Tom Griffin. “It’s early in the season. We had to figure things out. We have a really good offense. I was pleased we responded.”

The Red Storm had opened with a 13-0 (five inning) home win over Biddeford, as Giles and Hannan combined on a onehitter and Hannan hit a home run and a 19-2 (five inning) triumph at Portland, as

“(Being behind) was a little scary, but it fueled our fire to get hits,” Hannan said. “We did that and came back. “The offense was there today. That was good. I think the adrenaline was there. Everyone wanted to do well. Last year, we had a Acne Treatment

from page 18 Hannan had four hits, including a home run, and drove in four. Scarborough was at Gorham Wednesday, plays host to Bonny Eagle Friday and has its next big test at Thornton Academy Wednesday of next week. “Anybody can beat anybody, but it will be tough to beat us,” Griffin said. “I like my kids. I’m really happy. The girls really prepared themselves well going into the season. Physically, they’re beyond where I expected.” South Portland opened with a 6-1 home win over Bonny Eagle, behind junior Erin Bogdanovich, who earned the win with a two-hit, 12-strikeout effort, while also rapping out three hits, including a home run. Against Scarborough, the Red Riots were paced by Indorf’s three hits and four RBI and two triples from junior Danica Gleason. Ultimately, five errors spelled their doom. “We didn’t do (Olivia) any favors,” said South Portland coach Ralph Aceto. “She had a few bases on balls, but we shot ourselves in the foot in the outfield. We can swing the bats. I’m pleased as punch at that. If we can clean it up and play defense I’m used to seeing, we’ll be a better team at the end than we are now. Hitting was never a concern for me with this team. We have holes we need to straighten out. My biggest concern is defense. We have yet to play well defensively.” South Portland hosted Thornton Academy Wednesday. The Red Riots play at Noble Friday and welcome Sanford Monday.

In Western A, Scarborough, one of the preseason favorites, is off to a hot start, winning at Thornton Academy (9-3) and Portland (5-3). Against the Golden Trojans, senior ace Ben Wessel earned the victory and seniors Joe Cronin and Greg Viola both hit home runs. In the win over the Bulldogs, sophomore Ben Greenberg got the win, while Cronin and Wessel both had multiple hits. Wessel broke a seventh inning tie with an RBI triple. After hosting Sanford Thursday, the Red Storm is at Biddeford Saturday and welcomes Marshwood Tuesday. South Portland dropped its first outing, 10-4, at Biddeford.

Budget from page 1 Much of the savings come from favorable market adjustments, such as healthcare costs and debt service coming in lower than expected. But the School Board also delayed some spending, including buying a new school bus, funding an additional kindergarten-grade 2 teaching position, and holding athletic spending steady. While the $37.3 million education budget, approved by the School Board on Tuesday, is up only 4.92 percent, or nearly $1.8 million over this year, the expected tax need is up nearly 10 percent. Superintendent of Schools George Entwistle III said that’s because of a $1.1 million revenue loss from the expiration of federal stimulus money. That loss accounts for about 4 percent of the increase, he said. The good news, according to Entwistle, is that it’s a temporary correction. He said he doesn’t expect the increase to be as stark after this “correction year.” “There was essentially a cliff built in, and we don’t expect to experience it again,” he said. Despite the sizable increase, residents at an April 11 public forum overwhelmingly supported the education budget.

Unsung Hero from page 2 to know when and where to take remedial action. Since that time, he’s been an invaluable asset to Friends of Casco Bay, primarily as a volunteer, but sometimes in a paid role. In addition to monitoring water quality, Bertocci has trained and tested volunteers in classroom and field environments and managed a vessel pump-out program. Today, dozens of volunteers trained in EPA-approved techniques collect samples in 30 sites around Casco Bay. Bertocci has also instilled a love for the bay and an ethos of service in his daughter Maggie, now a student at North Yarmouth Academy. She accompanied her dad on his water-quality monitoring excursions Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/120978

for five years, beginning at age 6, and became skilled at both collecting and testing water samples. “We all have a basic responsibility to do public service; that’s been a constant in my life” Bertocci said. “I feel good about contributing to the health of the bay.” Peter Milholland, volunteer coordinator for Friends of Casco Bay, feels good about Bertocci’s contributions. “Andy is very knowledgeable and very precise,” Milholland said. “He’s been an invaluable asset for our program.” Payne emphasized the importance of a coordinated approach to protecting the health of the bay. “Friends of Casco Bay has become the model for a less confrontational, ‘workwith’ approach, made possible by the shared environmental values of those who live, work, and play along Casco Bay,” he said. Bertocci has become a model citizen steward in this coordinated effort. “Andy is a shining example of the big difference one person can make,” Payne said.

The Town Council, too, seemed pleased Wednesday night. Several councilors praised Entwistle and the School Board for coming down from the original proposal and thanked municipal department heads for doing what they could to flat-line their budgets. “This looks like a very reasonable budget,” Councilor Carol Rancourt said, even though “it’s always painful when there are tax increases that perhaps we wouldn’t like to see.” The council will hold a final vote on the complete budget on May 2. If it is approved, the school’s portion will go to a public referendum on May 15. Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @riocarmine.

About that tax increase ... SCARBOROUGH — According to Town Assessor Paul Lesperance, the average home in town is worth about $300,000. So the average homeowner paid taxes of about $3,900 in fiscal 2012, and will pay almost $4,200 in fiscal 2013 if the proposed budget is implemented. That’s an annual increase of $270. Or $5.19 per week. So what could the average homeowner give up to make up for the tax hike? Here are some things you can buy for $5.19 (give or take a few cents): • One dollar-menu cheeseburger

from any major fast-food chain every weekday. • Two Red Eyes at Scarborough Grounds coffee. • More than a gallon of gas (but not much more). • Five one-night Redbox DVD rentals. • A pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream (keep the change). • Five songs on iTunes. • About .00000000519 percent of Instagram (based on the price Facebook paid for the smartphone app). — Mario Moretto

Out & About

Season draws to a close with musical theater, concerts By Scott Andrews The end is coming. That’s one message from this week’s arts and entertainment calendar, as several of the region’s producers and presenters call it quits for 2011-2012. Lyric Music Theater calls down the curtain on its subscription season of musicals with a fine community production of “Pirates of Penzance,” a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta that has enjoyed enduring success for well over a century. Oratorio Chorale puts the coda on its season with a pair of concerts titled “Cold Fusion,” that feature a collaboration with the Orchid Ensemble. Portland Symphony Orchestra closes its Pops season with a pair of concerts this weekend. Titled “One Vision,” Maestro Robert Moody’s program focuses on the music of pop rockers Freddie Mercury and Queen. Portland Ovations wraps up its season on May 3 with a performance by Jennifer Koh, a virtuoso classical violinist. One Longfellow Square – which isn’t ending anything – brings in Canadian fiddling champion April Verch on April 27.

Queen tribute band. Additional vocal power will be provided the University of Southern Maine Chamber Singers. Plus, of course, the PSO itself, with Moody on the podium. Musical selections include most of Queen’s best-remembered hits, such as “Another One Bites the Dust,” “We Will Rock You,” “Under Pressure,” “We Are the Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” There are two performances at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: April 28 at 7:30 p.m. and April 29 at 2:30 p.m.. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Jennifer Koh

‘The Pirates of Penzance’ In the late 1800s, the librettist-composer team of William Schwenck Gilbert and Arthur Seymour Sullivan dominated British and American musical theater. Perhaps the ultimate G&S show is “The Pirates of Penzance,” a whimsical and satirical look at Victorian society of the 1870s. With extremely clever lyrics and extraordinarily fine melodies, “Pirates” endures in South Portland via a fine community production by Lyric Music Theater. The plot follows a band of pirates who are so kind-hearted that they’re utterly ineffective in capturing ships or booty of any sort. But they’ve captured the hearts of theater-goers since 1879. Director Don Smith has assembled a fine cast, topped by three men and one woman. Mark Dils as a pirate king, Bill McCue as a British major-general, and John U. Robinson as a police captain, are the best of the men, while 17- year-old Michaela K. Boissonneault is superb as the ingenue. They’re among a cast of two dozen,

with musical direction by Sylvia Infantine and choreographer Celeste Green. Lyric Music Theater, 176 Sawyer St. in South Portland, presents “The Pirates of Penzance” through May 5 with 8 p.m. performances Fridays and Saturdays and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Call 799-1421.

Oratorio Chorale The Midcoast-based Oratorio Chorale is venturing far from its artistic home base this weekend with a pair of concerts and an innovative collaboration with the Vancouver-based Orchid Ensemble. The program, billed as “Cold Fusion,” explores the music of the Chinese-Jewish diaspora. One example is Moshe Denberg’s composition which looks at the

Jewish presence along the famed Silk Road, which linked pre-Renaissance Europe to China. The Chorale will perform with the Orchid Ensemble’s Lan Tung, of Taiwan and Canada, on the erhu (Chinese violin), Yu-Chen Wang, of Taiwan and the U.S., on the zheng (Chinese zither), and Jonathan Bernard, of Canada, on percussion. This ensemble blends these ancient instruments and traditions from China and beyond. Add the Chorale’s 20-plus voices and the result will be very interesting. Two performances are scheduled: April 28 at 7:30 p.m. at Montgomery Theater at Morse High School in Bath, and April 29 at 3 p.m. at Woodford’s Congregational Church, 202 Woodford St. in Portland. Call 798-7985.

Portland Symphony Orchestra Pops “We are the champions of the world.” Concert-goers will hear that audacious musical assertion this weekend as the Portland Symphony Orchestra wraps up its Pops season. Champions of the world? Have Maestro Robert Moody and the orchestra copped some sort of global competition? No, but rock fans will recognize the familiar phrase as one of the iconic lyrics of Freddie Mercury and Queen, a British pop group that ruled the Billboard charts in the 1970s through the 1980s. And Moody’s Pops program, titled “One Vision,” will focus on music of Queen and its irrepressible front man, Freddie Mercury. For this weekend’s two concerts, singer and song stylist Michael Shotton will play the Freddie Mercury part (the original died in 1991) and lead a

Portland Ovations reaches the end of its 2011-2012 season when American violin virtuoso Jennifer Koh presents a recital on May 3. Recognized for her passionate and commanding performances, Koh is known for both consummate musicianship and the probing intellectual acuity that she brings to both the traditional and contemporary repertoire. A graduate of the Curtis Institute, Koh earned a silver medal in the 1994 Tchaikovsky Competition. Her seven CDs include one nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance. With a rousing musical curiosity Koh chooses works that both inspire and challenge her while constantly searching for similarities of voice among diverse composers and associations within the works of a single composer. Believing that past plus present form a continuum, the May 3 program, titled “Bach and Beyond,” pairs sonatas and partitas written by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) with works by modern and contemporary composers. The 7:30 p.m. concert is slated for Hannaford Hall in the Abromson Community Education Center at 88 Bedford St. on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus. Call PortTix at 8420800.

April Verch

Canadian national fiddle champion April Verch is what’s called a complete package: She’s not only a consummate fiddler, but she also sings, dances and composes. Now on tour promoting her eighth album, Verch and her two-man band will be stopping at One Longfellow Square in Portland this Friday. Expect a little of all three four talents as Verch sings old songs and new compositions from “That’s How We Run,” her latest CD. This project, released earlier this year, ventures south from her native Ontario into the Appalachian Mountains of the U.S. south. Her native idiom is Celtic fiddle, which has a musical vocabulary that’s not far removed from other varieties of roots music. Verch’s band, comprising guitarist Hayes Griffin and bassist/banjoist Cody Walters, jibes perfectly with the new artistic directions and geography on this album, which includes several bluegrass stylings plus other numbers that might have come from a Nashville recording studio in the 1950s. Catch April Verch at 8 p.m. April 27 at One Longfellow Square, corner of Congress and State in Portland. Call 761-1757.

Painkillers from page 1

according to U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency statistics.

Costly problem The costs of painkiller addiction are borne by everyone. In March, the state Office of Substance Abuse sounded an alarm with a report on substance abuse trends that identified prescription drugs as “a serious health concern.” “Prescription drug misuse continues to have a large impact on treatment and hospitalizations in Maine,” the report said. Kivler said staff at Midcoast Hospital’s Addiction Resource Center saw a trend in 2005. “We were noticing that a third of our patients were showing up for opiate addiction,” he said, “and we had a hard time keeping them in treatment because the withdrawal symptoms are so severe.” Wallace said that the costs of addictions go beyond the use of hospital resources. “People who are addicted will do anything to get the drug,” she said. “They’ll go to any means to get it. Almost anybody that steals, that breaks into your home to take things to sell, that’s why.” Wallace said that rather than face severe withdrawal symptoms, people will turn to other illicit drugs in a desperate effort to stave off the pain. “Painkillers cost $10 a gram on the streets,” she said. “They turn to heroin because it’s cheaper.”

Underlying cause According to Kivler, the reason behind the dramatic increases in prescriptions is fairly simple. He says that they are largely due to a single decision by the Joint Commission, which accredits and certifies 19,000 healthcare organizations across the country. In 2001, the Joint Commission revised its pain management standards to require that doctors recognize the right of patients to have their pain assessed and managed. It further requires that doctors “screen patients for pain during their initial assessment.” “Pain really became somewhat of a vital sign that physicians were asked to pay attention to,” Kivler said. Because of this, it is now standard prac-

April 27, 2012

How have painkiller prescriptions grown in your town? For Maine communities with Zip Codes beginning in “041” – a stretch that includes Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth and Cumberland – sales of the drugs have essentially doubled over the past 10 years. Oxycodone, a painkiller that is often prescribed under the name Vicodin, went from about 17,200 grams in 2000 to more than 31,700 grams in 2010, according to the most recent figures released by the Drug Enforcement Agency. Hydrocodone, the main ingredient of Oxycontin and Percocet, increased from about 4,000 grams in 2000 to about 8,000 in 2010. In communities with a “040” Zip Code prefix - an area that includes much more real estate and the communities of Brunswick, Topsham,

tice for doctors to ask all patients whether they are experiencing any pain. Those that answer yes begin a conversation about painkillers. “There were pharmaceutical companies that were involved in lobbying that through,” Kivler said. The nature of the doctor-patient relationship has been changed on a fundamental level, he said, accelerating an American trend toward excessive treatment. “There are cultural issues at play here. In other cultures, pain is an expectation if you have an injury,” Kivler said. “In this country, pain is something that must be treated and managed.” In Maine, he said, the prescriptions happen on a grand scale, largely because many local workers are in jobs that expose them to aches, pains, and injuries. “We have a lot of industries like fishing and logging and farmers, where people have a lot of legitimate pain,” Kivler said.

Positive outcomes Kivler said that doctors are only part of the solution. “Doctors are in a really hard position,” he said. “They can either not prescribe and they have a patient who is really unhappy

Dispose of unwanted meds

Harpswell, Yarmouth, North Yarmouth and Freeport, the trend is much more startling. There, hydrocodone sales spiked from nearly 8,900 grams in 2000 to more than 28,600 grams in 2010. Oxycodone went from about 28,400 grams to more than 102,000 grams over the same period. Statewide, hydrocodone prescriptions went from about 42,000 grams in 2000 to 126,000 grams in 2010; statewide oxycodone prescriptions went from 127,800 grams to 383,000 over the same period. While the raw number of drugs prescribed more than tripled in greater Portland, the statewide population increase over the 10 years was only 4.2 percent. — Matt Hongoltz-Hetling

and might register a complaint, or they can be accused of overprescribing.” But he said the situation is likely to improve. “I predict it to be getting better in the next 10 years. I really do,” he said. “This is an issue that we’re starting to grapple with.” He expects the solutions to come piecemeal, as doctors, legislators, pharmacists, and law enforcement officials respond to the new reality of painkiller prescriptions. Hospitals need to do a better job of tracking and holding staff accountable for painkiller inventories, Kivler said. One positive change is the use of automated dispensers that dole out drugs to hospital staff like high-security vending machines. “When you have a lot of painkillers sitting around in medicine cabinets for over a year, and it looks like no one might miss them, that’s a problem,” he said. The state also now provides a prescription monitoring database, which allows doctors to see whether their patients are getting drugs from other practitioners. “We find that there are people out there who have scrips from multiple doctors,” Kivler said. “It’s not that hard to do.”

This Friday and Saturday, various communities are hosting drug take-back programs, and residents are encouraged to bring in their medications, in original packaging if possible. Pet medications are also accepted. In Portland, on Friday, April 27, and Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m.2 p.m., drugs are accepted at Maine Medical Center; Rite Aid Pharmacy, 290 Congress St., or University of New England, 716 Stevens Ave. Residents of Falmouth, Freeport, Cape Elizabeth, Brunswick, Yarmouth and Cumberland can take their drugs to their local police departments on Saturday, April 28th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. In Harpswell, a collection site will be active at Town Hall, 263 Mountain Road, on Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Patients also have to be kept more accountable for the pills that are put into their hands, he said. This is accomplished by administering drug screenings, and requiring patients to bring in their pill bottles halfway through the treatment period, to demonstrate that they have been taking the correct amounts. Kivler also said that the state must be more proactive in promoting the use of suboxone, a drug that can help people to get off of painkillers more easily. “It doesn’t get an opiate addict high, but it keeps them out of withdrawal. The medication is what allows them to sit in treatment,” he said. At the end of the day, Kivler said, the response has to be coordinated statewide. “Best practices will have to become more widespread. Let’s say Midcoast Hospital starts ... to tighten up,” he said. “That doesn’t really help, because they just go to the next place. We’re talking about an 18-to-25 demographic here. They all have iPhones. When something is working for someone, the word gets out.” Matt Hongoltz-Hetling can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or matthh@theforecaster.net.

Cape budget from page 3 leadership team should be commended for developing a budget that seems to keep most programs intact in the face of drastically reduced federal and state funding,” Brigham said. Budget documents show the School Department lost a net $236,000 in federal and state subsidies for the next fiscal year. Accumulated Medicare funds offset $480,000 of revenue losses of $452,000 in federal jobs bill subsidies and $272,000 in state aid. Trinity Road resident Kathy Lualdi agreed with Brigham. “We have to maintain a certain minimum not only to do what we have done well, but to move forward,” Lualdi said. Dana Stanley, a father of three who

School board from page 1 in other budget lines. Including these cuts, the proposed operating budget is up about 1.8 percent over this year, and more closely in line with City Council expectations. The new proposal eliminates a proposed part-time communications position (essentially a public relations staffer for the schools), cuts $30,000 in professional development funds, maintains the status quo for field trip funding and eliminates stipends for elementary school teacherleaders. On Monday night, councilors were conflicted as to what number they would

lives on Abaco Drive, said he and his family moved to town because of its reputation for schools. “Our expectations have been met so far,” he said. “I believe the proposed budget strikes the necessary balance between the stellar system of education we all expect and recognizing the reality of the challenging economy.” Brigham and Hunts Point Road resident Dan Fishbein said collaboration and compromise were critical in making the budget work well for all. They contrasted smooth school budget deliberations in town to more contentious discussions in other communities. “We have a reasonable situation in front of us this year instead of a crisis,” Fishbein said.

Farmers market from page 3 to get started, citing last year’s July start as another reason they were not successful. “If we don’t get going soon, there won’t be farmers at the market,” she said. Nineteen farmers have told Jordan they are interested in participating in the farmers market, but only five have filled out the necessary paperwork. According to Jordan, the farmers are “half in,” waiting to fully commit until a location, date and time are determined. “Eventually we will find the right answer; the right location and the right time,” Councilor Tom Blake said. “No matter where we have it, we’re not going to have 100 percent of our citizen’s support.” Overall, councilors and business

like to see come back to them in another workshop on April 30, but they knew 2.2 percent wasn’t the one they wanted. “If this comes back to me at 3.73 (percent, including high school bond obligations), I would be inclined to oppose, not saying I would, but I would be inclined,” Councilor Tom Blake said. Councilors Rosemarie De Angelis, Tom Blake and Gerald Jalbert said they would like to see an increase more like 1.1 percent or 1.2 percent come back to the council, while Councilor Maxine Beecher and Mayor Patti Smith said they would support a 1.9 percent or 2 percent increase if it is “mission critical.” While councilors asked the School Board to sharpen their pencils, student representatives Lizzie Canarie and Jack-

son Beck told councilors that anything less than a 2.2 percent increase would not serve students well. They said the educational needs of the students have changed and a greater investment in South Portland schools is needed. “Invest in us, we will serve you well,” Canarie said. Board member Richard Matthews echoed the students. “South Portland has a logo with a light house that says ‘forward,’” he said. “We need that 2.2 percent to move forward; our school system needs to move forward.”

they intend to bring it back to the council. “I’m not gonna fight with it anymore,” Sullivan said. “It was a lot of work, I put myself out there, I was falsely accused and I’ve had about enough of that.” “I’m not opposed to bringing it back, but I’m by no means beating down the doors to do it,” Holbrook said. Meanwhile, at Town Hall, business is moving forward under the organic policy.

On Friday, the town opened contractor bids on a request for proposals for turf management services. The town received three bids: one from Go Green Landscaping for more than $22,800 per year, another from Purely Organics for $30,000 per year and the third from Sports Fields for $35,200. Hall said a two-year contract would be awarded in the next week or so, but that

owners who spoke supported closing Hinckley Drive to traffic, because the move would eliminate the possibility of traffic cutting through private parking lots to avoid the market. The council will conduct a first reading of the proposal at its meeting on May 7 and, if approved, it will go before the Planning Board on May 8. Although a second reading is not scheduled to take place until May 21, City Manager Jim Gailey said the market may be able to open as soon as May 10, if the city’s attorney says that’s OK. Councilor Alan Livingston disagreed with that approach. He said if the market is approved, there should be a special council meeting for final approval before the market is allowed to open for the season.

Blake responded by saying he believes there are more cuts that can be made that will not have a negative impact on students. “I completely understand about ‘forward,’” Blake said. “But there are very few circumstances where everyone can move forward without sacrifices.” Selser said he believes the City Council will be more inclined to approve the 1.8 percent increase adopted Wednesday. “Given a choice of several meals, none of which were very tasty, enough people agreed on the one was the least distasteful,” he said.
