By Mario Moretto SCARBOROUGH — Town officials are preparing for an ethics hearing triggered by allegations against Councilor Richard Sullivan. Town Manager Tom Hall said he is drafting a procedure for the hearing, the first since the town adopted new rules and regulations for town councilors in 2009. Those rules provide for a process that could result in the censure of a councilor, but don’t outline that process. “A hearing is to be convened,” Hall said. “Then there’s no rules.” During a debate over the town’s pest management policy, Councilors Carol Rancourt and Karen D’Andrea accused Sullivan of failing to disclose a potential conflict of interest because the town hires Sullivan’s brother, Dan Sullivan, for lawn mowing services. Councilors are required to file disclosure statements about any family member who makes more than $1,000 via contracts with the town. Dan Sullivan was hired for $40,000. Richard Sullivan admitted to never filing a disclosure, but said he never knew it was required. He also pointed out that no councilor has ever filed a disclosure, though all are required to do so every April. Since then, each councilor has filed the documents. If Sullivan’s fellow councilors decide he violated council rules, he could be subject to censure. According to Hall, that would amount to a serious slap on the wrist. While Sullivan wouldn’t face

Deb Davis, a Falmouth mother, was a member of the group of student advocates, education specialists, and others who worked to rewrite the Maine Department of Education’s rules on use of “therapeutic restraint” and seclusion of students.

Advocates cautious as state tightens rule on physical restraint in schools By Andrew Cullen FALMOUTH — On June 4, after months of meetings, legislative hearings and the governor’s signature, the state Department of Education will file a new version of its rule governing the use of restraints and seclusion in schools.

Five days later, the rule will take effect. But for Deb Davis, a Falmouth mother of two who worked on the consensus-building committee that essentially wrote the revision, the work continues. Davis still keeps a crate of docu-

Fitzgerald said. Fittzgerald, Mayor Patti Smith and two high school students, Gabriella Ferrell and Morrigan Turner, addressed a crowd of about 100 Monday evening for the groundbreaking. The ceremony marks the beginning of a construction process expected to last more than two years. The school will grow by 50 percent, from about 200,000 square feet to 300,000 square feet. New features include an internal courtyard, a renovated Beal Gym and South Portland Auditorium, and construction of a new dining hall/kitchen facility and lecture hall. The school will also be energy efficient

and feature a natural gas heating and cooling system. At Monday's ceremony, 10 teams representing South Portland students and the architecture and construction firms hired for the renovations took hold of shovels and ceremonially threw shovelfuls of dirt.

Construction will start in earnest next week, according to Joe Picoraro, project executive for the lead contractor, PC Construction. Picoraro said the first phase will include the new kitchen/dining facility,

South Portland voters get nearly $40M school budget By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — City councilors on Monday approved the School Board's $39.9 million operating budget for the next school year and sent the budget to a May 15 referendum. While the City Council passed the budget, it didn't do so without dissent. The

council voted 5-2, with Councilors Al Livingston and Jerry Jalbert dissenting. "Board members, I appreciate all the effort you put in," said Livingston, a former School Board member. But "... the time for liberal spending is over. I don't think we can keep putting it on our citizens."

The School Board faced a large revenue shortfall in planning for fiscal 2013. Over the past four years, federal stimulus and Jobs Bill funds have filled budget gaps to the tune of $4.8 million. This year, the district received $1.6 million in federal funding. In the fiscal year that begins July 1, that number is zero. There is an increase in state subsidy, from $2.1 million this year to an expected $3.1 million next year, but total state-and-federal aid is still down by more than $600,000. The budget passed Monday represents a 1.78 percent increase in operating costs. The School Board had originally proposed a 2.2 percent increase, but carved off $136,000 in spending. "You told the School Board that what we originally brought you was too high," School Board member Jeff Selser said Monday. "You asked, in fact you asked twice, for us to go back and reduce the

City appeals School Board member’s civil rights victory By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — The city is appealing a decision by a Maine Superior Court judge that overturned a city policy barring municipal employees from seeking election to the School Board. The city filed the necessary paperwork Tuesday to appeal the decision to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Karen Callaghan, a School Board member and city librarian, and Burton Edwards, a former School Board member and parttime Parks Department employee, won the civil rights lawsuit against the city last month. “We feel that it’s important for us to continue to pursue this,” City Manager

Jim Gailey said Wednesday. “We feel as though it’s in the best interest of the city, in a personnel policy that governs all 300 employees, to have this language.” The city has argued the policy is necessary to avoid untoward influence on city operations by School Board Callaghan members, or inappropriate decisions made by city employees because of School Board politics. Callaghan and Edwards argued that the city’s prohibition on school district politics violated their First Amendment rights.

Superior Court Judge Thomas Warren agreed, writing in his order of summary judgment that there just wasn’t enough of a relationship between city employees and the School Board to to justify the prohibition. “School Board members do not have any supervisory authority over municipal employees,” the judge said. On Wednesday, Callaghan said she was stunned by the city’s appeal. “I thought there’d be no way (the city) would appeal because it was very clear from the judge that he thought it was all very spurious,” she said. “I don’t see how I can’t win again. I just don’t see what they don’t get about having rights. It’s just baffling.”

Scarborough voters asked to ‘correct’ school spending By Mario Moretto SCARBOROUGH — Residents on Tuesday will vote on a proposed $37.4 million “correction year” education budget. Polls open at 7 a.m. May 15 in Council Chambers at the Scarborough Municipal Building. Absentee ballots are available, and must be returned by 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 15. The fiscal 2013 budget represents an approximate $1.7 million increase in spending over this year, and a $2.9 million increase in taxes. That disparity is caused by the revenue shortfall caused when federal stimulus and Jobs Bill funds ran dry. School and municipal officials are calling fiscal 2013 a “correction year.” Still, the budget is $1.8 million less than Superintendent George Entwistle III’s original proposal. Those savings were made by cutting a new school bus, $150,000 in technology spending, a kindergarten teacher position and other operating costs.

Comment on this story at:

Other costs, such as health and dental insurance for faculty and wage projections for new employees, are predicted to come in lower than originally expected. “This budget stops deterioration of educational quality, and it promotes slow but certain movement toward becoming the high-performance school district that the community expects and deserves,” Entwistle recently said in a letter. Entwistle said that while percentage increases seem high this year, that’s because adequate investment wasn’t made in previous years. Even if this seemingly large budget is passed, annual expenditure increases from 2009-2013 will average only about 2 percent. If the proposed budget is accepted by voters, education costs will contribute an additional 80 cents to the property rate, bringing the total rate for education up to

$8.96 per $1,000 of property value. Combined with the municipal and county budgets, which are not up for a vote, the total property tax rate would be $13.93 per $1,000, up 90 cents. For the average Scarborough homeowner, that’s an extra $270 per year in property taxes, or an additional $5.19 per week.

Principal, tech leader leaving Cape Elizabeth By David Harry CAPE ELIZABETH — From his office in Pond Cove Elementary School, Tom Eismeier has seen almost a generation of students arrive, grow and thrive. From a basement in Town Hall, Gary Lanoie has reached the clouds. Eismeier, who became principal at Pond Cove ElemenEismeier tary School 17 years ago, will retire Sept. 30. His contract was extended for three months to allow him to consult and serve as the search for his replacement progresses. Lanoie, who has served as technology Lanoie coordinator for the Cape Elizabeth School Department and helped bring town government into the digital age, will be leaving June 30 to become the first executive director of the nonprofit Association of Computer Technology Educators of Maine, commonly called ACTEM.

"These were new things and nice to have, now they are critical," Lanoie said about the servers, computers, iPads and other devices that are part of everyday life in school and government. "There are encounters every day that keep me younger than I am," said Eismeier, 67, of his tenure. But he plans to move on to retirement to spend more time with family and continue his new interest in canoeing. "I've discovered how heavy they can be,"

he joked about canoes Wednesday, less than 24 hours after his retirement was officially announced at a School Board meeting. School Superintendent Meredith Nadeau said Lanoie and Eismeier instilled confidence in students and staff while encouraging innovation and leadership. "Gary has been a teacher all the way

through, he is very good at figuring out individual learning styles," she said. He is supportive and makes you do all the work in a supportive way. It's part of exploring and learning, and there is no question he is extremely skilled." Eismeier is adept at accessibility while pushing the learning forward, Nadeau said. "There is such stability in the school.

South Portland Farmers Market moves to Hinckley Drive By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — Starting this week, the weekly South Portland Farmers Market will do business on Hinckley Drive, next to Mill Creek Park.

New health inspection rules raise doubts about restaurant oversight By David Harry YARMOUTH — When town councilors meet May 17, part of their agenda will focus on a bread-and-butter issue coming up in many towns that have conducted health inspections of local restaurants. A change in Maine law now requires all local health inspectors to have delegated authority from the state for inspections of restaurants, campgrounds, lodging establishments, public pools and spas and youth camps. But obtaining delegated state authority, or being licensed, to inspect food establishments could become much more difficult if administrative rule changes by the Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention Division of Environmental Health are enacted this summer. The proposed rule changes will bring the state in line with federal Food and Drug Administration standards adopted in 2009, as opposed to the 1999 rules currently in place, said Lisa Roy, the state program manager who oversees the health inspection program. Included in new standards are methods for testing for microbial contamination that veteran inspectors have not used before. “This is a real overkill,” Anita Anderson, who has been an inspector for local health departments, told Yarmouth councilors at a May 3 workshop. “Ninety-nine percent of towns in Maine do not get into these standards.” Anderson said certification requirements to obtain state-delegated authority are driving experienced local inspectors out of the business. In the past, local inspectors worked with state inspectors when needed, and Anderson said a lack of inspectors could harm the industry and its regulation. “They are very comprehensive and very complicated,” Roy said about the proposed rule changes she expects will be reviewed at a public hearing in Augusta next month. Local inspectors will not have to pay for training to be certified as state inspectors, Roy said, but the training provided by two state inspectors requires 25 inspections ac-

companied by an FDA-certified inspector and 25 solo inspections with inspection records reviewed by the training officer. Anderson disagreed with Roy’s interpretation, and said her reading of the proposed regulations shows local inspectors will have to make 37 inspections accompanied by a FDA-certified inspectors. Getting certified to work in one geographic area will be difficult because there may not be enough restaurants in the area to fulfill the certification requirements for inspectors, she said. The state has already delegated authority to inspectors in Portland, South Portland, Lewiston and Auburn. South Portland Code Enforcement Officer Pat Doucette said local inspectors will learn about the new standards as part of their routine training. Some towns, including Scarborough, Freeport and Cape Elizabeth, have entirely or largely left health inspections for eating establishments to state inspectors. In Yarmouth, councilors are expected to discuss eliminating the local victualer’s ordinance and annual $50 license fee charged to business owners because the fee included local inspections. “Let’s get out of the victualer’s license business altogether,” Town Manager Nat Tupper recommended at last week’s council workshop. In neighboring Brunswick and Bath, local health inspections of restaurants have ended, even as the inspectors supported new health standards. Bath Code Enforcement Officer Scott Davis said the training to earn state licensing to inspect eating establishments is so demanding it can’t fit into the workload of local code inspectors, so it is easier to let state inspectors carry the load. He wondered if the state now has enough inspectors to meet the goal of inspecting each eating establishment at least once every two years. “It is a noble goal,” Davis said. “I question if they have the resources.” Brunswick Deputy Fire Chief Jeffrey Emerson has been conducting health inspections for six years, but said he will now only be inspecting for fire safety.

If you have been injured, meet your strongest ally.

“The process through the state is at this time too significant of a workload for us to undertake,” Emerson said. “If there are health issues we are aware of, we will turn them over to (the Department of) Health and Human Services.” The new state rules also affect the owners of eating establishments, who are now required to designate a “certified food protection manager.” Bed-and-breakfast establishments with fewer than six rooms and places serving food for 14 or fewer days each year are exempt from the requirement enacted in January. Dick Grotton, president of the Maine Restaurant Association, said he welcomes the new rules. Grotton said he does not worry about a lack of inspectors and had not heard of new restaurants having any difficulties in opening because of delayed inspections. “We need to be more knowledgeable about codes and FDA regulations,” Grotton said, noting the requirement for a food protection manager was delayed for a year

to allow restaurants time to comply. The certification requires one or two days of intensive training, he said, and the association has arranged training sessions for its members and nonmembers. Grotton urged restaurant owners to take the training and designate someone with authority to manage food safety. “It is not rocket science, it is very straightforward stuff,” he said. “Owners need to be able to walk through a kitchen and know when things are right or not right.” Grotton said he has reviewed the proposed health standards revisions, and supports the idea of a conforming standard so owners will not be faced with trying to satisfy two sets of licensing requirements. Emerson, in Brunswick, agreed with the need for conformity, but said he worries about the immediate future of inspections. “I understand what they are trying to accomplish,” he said. “It is unfortunate it can’t be accomplished in a way to keep more eyes pointed at public safety.”

Unsung Hero: Katherine Wilson, ‘Mom’ to those in need Unsung Heroes One in a series of profiles by Brunswick writer David Treadwell about people who quietly contribute to the quality of life in greater Portland. Do you know an Unsung Hero? Tell us:

some of the people she could help were going through their own rough patches, living temporarily at Tedford Housing. So Wilson got a job at Tedford in 2006, first on a per-diem basis and later as a fulltime employee. “I love it,” she said of her current position as adult shelter team leader. Her duties run the gamut: cooking meals, doing intake on new residents, helping develop comprehensive care plans for residents, buying food and other supplies, ensuring a safe environment, and doing whatever else needs to be done. “I’ve worked my way right up at Tedford,” Wilson said with justifiable pride. “I have a way with people. I help them feel good about themselves. I show them respect, and they show me respect right back. I’m like a mother hen. Sometimes they call me ‘Mom.’” Wilson noted that Tedford Housing expects the residents to follow rules. There’s zero tolerance for alcohol or drugs. All residents are expected to be at the evening meal

...and More!

By David Treadwell BRUNSWICK — Katherine Wilson spent her early years living on the family farm in Bowdoinham and helping out with chores. “My mother instilled a sense of responsibility,” Wilson said. An only child, she enjoyed typical teenage activities: riding a motorcycle, going snowmobiling, playing softball, being a cheerleader. And then came a rough patch, which lasted about 20 years. “There were lots of struggles,” Wilson said. Getting married and divorced twice. Raising five children, most often as a single mom. Needing to rely, at times, on public assistance, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and Additional Support for People in Retraining and Employment. As part of the requirements of the ASPIRE program, Wilson spent time volunteering at the Maine Hunger Prevention Program and at the Tedford Shelter in Brunswick, now called Tedford Housing. In 2000, Katherine got a full-time job at the 7-Eleven in downtown Brunswick, a position she held for more than six years. A self-described “people person,” she enjoyed working at the convenience store, but something was missing in her life. “I needed a change. I wanted to get back to the people I could help,” she said.

One mother of a Sunday As I sit here beneath the glow of the so-called “supermoon” (which from my particular venue looks suspiciously like the non-super moon I’ve grown to know and love) I find myself once again amazed by the plethora of entertaining subject matter that fills my life. No Sugar My writer’s heart is torn between three topics: Mother’s Day, mothers moving daughters out of college dorm rooms, and the merit of justified libel suits against social media bullies. As they say on Sesame Street, “one of these things is not like the other,” so I will save the misfit topic and focus on the motherhood thing for now. So, Mother’s Day is Sandi Amorello once again upon us. But another thing that is upon us is the end of the spring college semester, and mothers (especially single mothers) everywhere are out in force – bagging, boxing and stuffing into vehicles the often frightening, disturbing (and sometimes moldy/unidentifiable) contents of their children’s dorm rooms. I had the pleasure of this experience today, and I can tell you it did not inspire within me a sappy verse to be featured on the inside of a Hallmark card. OK, perhaps there were one or two syrupy thoughts, but believe me when I tell you they were short-lived. I think you already know my views on commercialized, sentimental holidays of all varieties: I wholeheartedly do not support them.


Sure I treasure the macaroni necklaces my children gave me in elementary school. What mother doesn’t love to wear macaroni? My own mother kept the Mother’s Day necklace I made for her out of disproportionately large clay beads – a necklace normally only sported by Wilma Flintstone or possibly Barbara Bush – until it disintegrated decades later. I’m pretty sure she even wore it to brunch. And certainly I get misty-eyed reading the cards written with crayon on now-slightly-faded construction paper. I mean, the entire holiday is concocted to make us weep. To foster amnesia surrounding the 96 hours of labor, poopy diaper changes, week-long stomach viruses, nights of colic and our hair turning all shades of gray in emergency rooms at 2 a.m. Of course, the Hallmark fantasy does occasionally come to fruition, and it’s a day of sweetness and butterflies and wildflowers and gourmet waffles in bed. But this is the exception, not the rule. There have been years (during both my marriage and my widowhood) when all I’ve wanted for Mother’s Day was an appointment with a 29-year-old masseuse named Eduardo. Or a room at a hotel in a child-unfriendly city. Or a trip on the space shuttle. Admittedly, as my children have grown, Mother’s Day has changed. Whether it’s for the better remains to be seen. They can now happily cook an edible breakfast for me, although the point is lost because, as teenagers, they are waking up to prepare breakfast just as I’m ready to eat dinner. This year, tragically, work is preventing my being with my wonderful children on the day of maternal bliss. And although Charles has already attempted to lay a guilt trip on me, I’m not buying it. When he gave me his patented “this will damage me for life” gaze, I reminded him that last Mother’s Day I was abandoned

by my adoring children and left to fend for myself. Guilt is a four-letter word and any mother who falls for that manipulation should receive a gift certificate for a therapy session. If today’s dorm-moving experience was my Mothers’ Day preview, then I think I’m off the hook. As I worked up a proper motherly sweat, jamming bags of dirty clothing and Fruit Loops and art projects and books and platform shoes and cacti and who knows what else into our vehicle, Ophelia was kind enough to remind me that I could conceivably be repeating this process another 22 times before my children’s college careers are over. This news depressed me severely and I am now thinking of making plans to abandon ship on Father’s Day, too. Happy Mother’s Day to all of my partners in motherly crime. Hang tough. And remember, macaroni – not diamonds – are a girl's best friend.

Independent education from Early Childhood through Grade 12




South Portland councilor notes correction An article last week stated that I wanted to see an increase in the school budget of 1.1 percent or 1.2 percent for the schools. While I did ask the School Board to continue working and try to decrease the budget a bit more, I did not come close to asking for this amount as suggested. It was Councilors Livingston and Jalbert who asked for this level of increase with some support from Councilor Blake, who also added he would listen to the full proposal. One could review the tape and see that I clearly suggested that the overall increase would be better received if it came in closer to 3 percent overall or somewhere near a 1.5 percent increase on the operating budget. I also concurred with Mayor Smith and Councilor Beecher that some cut would help, but that it should not devastate programs so if a little more was warranted, I would be open to hear that too. City Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis South Portland

large? This budget aims to rebuild and strengthen existing programs, restore some of those that have been reduced in the past, and provide for those areas needed to prepare our students for success in their future educational endeavors and career paths. The budget is a combination of reallocation of current resources, some incremental additions as well as a delay of some purchases and an overall trimming of line items. The budget being brought to the voters is a smart and responsible educational budget for Scarborough. The investments we make in our students today will better prepare our leaders of tomorrow. The School Board supports the budget and encourages you to support it on May 15. Christine Massengill & Bob Mitchell For the Scarborough School Board

Millett the Senate choice for District 7 Dems A primary election offers voters an opportunity to choose between qualified candidates and select the one who will best represent constituents. In Senate District 7, Rebecca Millett is the clear choice for Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough and South Portland.

Board urges support for Scarborough school budget As members of the Scarborough Board of Education, our mission is to advocate for the children of Scarborough by adopting a “kids first” educational program, policies and a responsible budget. Through the efforts of the Superintendent, leadership team and the School Board, a very thoughtful and well-planned mission-critical budget was developed and finalized. The budget being brought forward is a solid budget for Scarborough schools. The School Board and Town Council both have approved the budget.

Rebecca’s professional, educational and personal experiences span a wide range of disciplines, as do her many years of community service. Rebecca has been a champion for the students of Cape Elizabeth while serving on the Board of Education. She has a proven record of leadership, problem solving, and the clear thinking that is so critical to the work of a state senator. But what commends Rebecca most to me is her love of Maine, its special places and natural resources, and her fervent wish to see her children prosper and grow in its great beauty.

With the reductions in federal and state funding, we have been faced with a large task. How do we best serve our students while being mindful of the community at




Please vote for Rebecca in the June 12 primary election. Rep. Jane Eberle South Portland

I would have to guess that the Sun Media Group, owner of The Forecaster, is one of those evil corporations. And I have to assume that Mr. Beem doesn’t write his column for free. If you were to check the companies that advertise in The Forecaster, the ones that provide the source of revenue for Mr. Beem’s pay check, you would most likely find that a majority of them are corporations. Why they continue to advertise in a newspaper that allows one of its writers to continually slap them in the face is beyond me.

Beem obviously does not understand how businesses in America operate because the corporations are the providers of jobs, and the payers of taxes. But in his opinion it’s OK to criticize and demean some corporations as being evil, while he continues to work for one that derives a majority of its income from a variety of corporations. And no one seems to mind. America is such a great country. Peter Williams, Falmouth

Help Maine postal workers fight hunger Once again, the National Association of Letter Carriers and the U.S. Postal Service are hosting Stamp Out Hunger, the nation’s largest single-day food drive. AARP and AARP Foundation will sponsor this amazing opportunity. Together, we can make a big difference by donating non-perishable food items that will help many of our friends and neighbors. The truth is one person going hungry in Maine is one person too many. Last year, an AARP Foundation report revealed that hunger among older Americans has jumped nearly 80 percent in just 10 years. Here in Maine, the news is no better. In each of the categories measured in the report, Maine fared very poorly when compared to other New England states. In some cases, Maine had the worst statistics for the entire Northeast region. I hope everyone will participate in Stamp Out Hunger on May 12. Here’s how it works: Letter carriers across the country will collect non-perishable food donations from their postal customers at the same time as they deliver the mail. (You can also drop o ff f o o d a t your local post office). The letter carriers – in some cases with the help of volunteers – will then deliver these donations to a local food bank or pantry. Households nationwide will be alerted to the opportunity to participate in this food drive through a postcard or bag delivered to their home. This is a terrific and easy way to help those in need in every community across the state. Together, we can stamp out hunger in Maine. Dr. Erica Magnus, AARP outreach volunteer Windham

Call it the Center for So-What Reporting By Edgar Allen Beem The Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting is a good idea that just hasn’t panned out yet. I was going to say I can’t tell you how disappointed I’ve been in MCPIR, but I guess I can and I’m going to do so right now. An independent, nonpartisan investigative journalism organization supported by media partners (including The Forecaster) and foundation grants is a great idea because the decline of print journalism and The Universal journalism in general has meant that fewer and fewer newspapers have sufficient staffs to undertake long, investigative projects. ProPublica is the national model for nonprofit journalism, but it was too much to hope that MCPIR would measure up to ProPublica. MCPIR is a momand-pop news shop run Edgar Allen Beem by the husband-wife team of John Christie, former Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel publisher, and Naomi Schalit, former Maine Public Radio reporter and Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel opinion page editor. Launched in 2009, MCPIR has produced several series of investigative reports, the majority of which have left me asking the same question: “So what?” It’s not the lack of real consequence that bothers me so much about MCPIR as it is the strange, conservative line of inquiry it has taken. I recently heard an interview in which Schalit talked about being brought up to champion the underdog. Maybe so, but MCPIR hasn’t done so yet. Like I said, I didn’t expect Pro Publica, but neither did I expect the "Maine Heritage Policy Center for Public Interest Reporting." Many of the major center projects would look just as at home on the Maine Heritage Policy Center website as on the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting website. My first major disappointment was MCPIR’s series on the state pension “time bomb,” an alarmist report made to order for deficit hawks. Buried deep in the story was the truth of the matter, that the pension


“crisis” is an artificial one caused by a legislatively imposed deadline. Pension crisis? So what? Change the deadline. Then there was the MCPIR expose of the Maine Green Energy Alliance. When the alliance realized that its strategy for weatherizing homes wasn’t working, it said so and gave the remaining money back. So what? Next was the big state ethics probe that revealed that some former legislators had ties to organizations that received state funding. Nothing illegal, mind you. But MCPIR is all about appearances. Unless the agencies in question, Goold Health Systems and Shalom House being the most prominent, were not qualified to receive state funding, so what? And now comes MCPIR to indict the University of Maine System for giving jobs to several former members of the Baldacci administration. Again, I say, so what? Were these people unqualified? Were jobs created for them or were they hired into open positions? Would we really rather advertise them nationally and give Maine jobs to some stuffed shirt from Sacramento? All appearance, no substance. With working-class people, women, the poor, the elderly, minorities, school children, immigrants, state employees, educators, environmentalists and just about any group you can name other than sunshine patriots and corporate stooges under attack from right-wing conspiracies fronted by the American Legislative Exchange Council, Maine Heritage Policy Center, and the LePage administration, there are plenty of underdogs out there to be championed. That’s why it ticks me off that the Pine Tree Watchdog has turned out to be such a conservative lapdog. To put it another way, Christie and Schalit seem content to write parking tickets for bureaucrats while drunk drivers in Augusta are running over the state’s most vulnerable citizens and running roughshod over the environment. They consistently ask the wrong questions about the wrong stories. Two of my old bosses, former Maine Times editors Matt Storin and Jay Davis, are on the MCPIR board. Maybe one of them should join the center’s staff. A good editor could make a big difference. So far, MCPIR hasn’t. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Smart meters from page 1 on whether the commission properly dismissed the complaint. Friedman was more direct. “We would like to overturn the whole program,” he said. At the outset of the hearing, McGlauflin was grilled by justices on why they, instead of a Superior Court judge, were hearing the appeal of the PUC decision. Chief Justice Leigh Sauffley also asked McGlauflin if the complaint rejected by the PUC last summer, after an earlier PUC decision requiring an opt-out program, presented new evidence. McGlauflin conceded there was no new information in the complaint, but asserted the right of citizens to file an additional complaint while saying it was not a specific appeal of the earlier PUC decision. The complaint rejected by the PUC last summer also argued that the opt-out plan, which charges customers extra fees for keeping conventional meters or having the wireless capability of new ones disabled, violates the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution because customers are paying fees to avoid the potential dangers and invasion of privacy the meters represent. Friedman and McGlauflin said they were disappointed justices did not ask more about constitutional issues, but McGlauflin said the overall line of questioning was fine with him. “They are very fair beating up on everybody,” he said. PUC attorney Catherine Connors and CMP attorney Jordan McColman declined comment after the hearing. They faced even sharper questions from the justices on whether the PUC needed to be on the record regarding the safety of smart meters in order to fully protect consumers. The attorneys argued the PUC relied on information from the Maine Center for Disease Control and Federal Communications Commission to establish there were no health concerns caused by smart meters. But the lack of a specific declaration especially troubled Sauffley and Justice Jon D. Levy. “What they could have added was their judgment,” Sauffley told Connors in regard to the PUC decision requiring the opt-out program for CMP customers. Customers who want to keep their current

EMS Scarborough emergency medical services responded to 22 calls from April 30 to May 6. Comment on this story at:

meters must pay a one-time $40 fee and monthly $12 fee. Customers requesting a new meter with the wireless transmission capabilities disabled are assessed a onetime $20 fee and a $10.50 monthly charge. Levy asked Connors and McColman how the PUC could reject the complaint from Friedman and others based on the idea it felt health questions were adequately resolved. “I can’t find that in any of the orders,” he said. Justice Ellen Gorman asked McColman directly if the PUC considered meters safe, and Sauffley remained unsatisfied with his answer that the commission relied on other information without making a specific determination. “Does that not misapprehend commission duties?” she asked. CMP has about 620,000 accounts in a coverage area extending from Kittery to mid-coast Maine and southern Oxford County bordering New Hampshire. Shortly after the company began removing older meters in favor of wireless ones in the Portland area, town councils in Scarborough and Cape Elizabeth passed moratoriums on the installations. At that time, Scarborough resident Elisa Boxer-Cook and others filed complaints with the PUC about the meters and mandatory installations, which eventually led to creation of the opt-out program. In Bath, councilors extended a moratorium on mass installations last December, requiring customer approval for any conversion to the smart meters. When asked by Justice Andrew M. Mead if an opt-out program with no fees would satisfy Fourth Amendment violations, McGlauflin said it would to a degree, but argued the meters themselves are a form of trespassing by a monopoly. Friedman and McGlauflin also said the opt-out program will not help residents of multi-unit buildings, because adjacent meters will still present health hazards. The case, docket No. PUC-11-532, is Ed Friedman, et al. v. Maine Public Utilities Commission and Central Maine Power Co.

Vincent J. “Luke” Lukas, 90: A busy handyman CAPE ELIZABETH — Vincent J. “Luke” Lukas, 90, died May 7 at his home. He was born in Kingston, N.Y., the son of Walter and Pelagia Lukas. He attended local schools and enlisted in the U.S. Army after graduating from high school. In 1941 he was stationed at Fort Williams and it was there that he met the love of his life, Nellie Piszczak, at a USO dance; they were married on Feb. 6, 1943. Together they made their home and raised their family in Cape Elizabeth. He was discharged from the military in 1945 and went on to work at Jordan Meats for a brief time before taking a job doing carpentry with George Lewis. During that time he also served as president of the Carpenters Union Local 517. He later went to work for Rufus Deering Lumber as a sales manager, a position he held for more than 17 years before he retired in P H Y S I C I A N

Spring sports season hits midway point (Ed. Note: For the complete Scarborough-Thornton Academy softball, Cape ElizabethYarmouth, Cape ElizabethGreely and Scarborough-Deering boys’ lacrosse and Cape Elizabeth-Greely girls’ lacrosse game stories, with photos and box scores, please visit By Michael Hoffer The spring sports season is known for its brevity and even though it feels like it just started, the regular season is rapidly dwindling. Most teams have already played at least half of their schedule and it’s time to start thinking about qualifying for the postseason and playoff positioning. Here’s a glimpse at what’s transpired in recent days and what’s to come:

Baseball – Red Storm back on track Scarborough’s baseball team suffered its first loss last Wednesday, 7-5, to visiting Marshwood, but bounced back to defeat visiting Kennebunk Thursday (11-0, in five innings) and visiting Bonny Eagle Monday (7-1). Against the Rams, Ben Wessel threw a one-hitter, fanned 10 and had three hits, Joe Cronin added three hits and Nick Bagley had four RBI. Ben Greenberg got the win and Bagley had two RBI versus the Scots. The Red Storm (6-1 and third in the latest Western Class A Heal Points standings) had a chance to avenge last year’s playoff loss when it went to South Portland Thursday. Scarborough hosts Cheverus Saturday and goes to Noble Tuesday. South Portland dropped a 3-2 (nine inning) decision at Sanford last Thursday and fell to 1-5 and 15th in Western A Monday after a 6-0 home loss to Thornton Academy. The Red Riots were home with Scarborough Thursday, host Windham Friday, go to Gorham Saturday and play host to Bonny Eagle Tuesday. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth blanked visiting York (2-0) last Thursday and host Wells (120, in five innings) Monday to improve to 4-3 (ninth in the Heals). Against the Wildcats, Will LeBlond threw an eight-hit shutout, while Sam Kozlowski had three hits. In the win over the Warriors, Zach Culver had a career day, singling, doubling, tripling, homering and driving

in six runs. Kozlowski earned the win with a one-hitter. He struck out six. The Capers were home with Waynflete Thursday. Cape Elizabeth hosts Fryeburg Friday and Yarmouth Saturday, goes to Freeport Monday and Lake Region Wednesday.

Softball – Capers win a pair On the softball diamond, Cape Elizabeth is working its way up the Western Class B standings. The Capers held off visiting York, 8-5, last Thursday and eked out a 7-6 win at Wells Monday to improve to 4-2 (11th in the Heals). Against the Wildcats, Kate Rabasca earned the win, while Anna Goldstein got the save. Emmy Ham scored three runs. Elise Flathers singled and tripled. In the win over the Warriors, Goldstein got the win and Ellen Best and Ashley Tinsman had multiple hits. Cape Elizabeth hosted Yarmouth Wednesday, welcomes powerhouse Fryeburg Friday, goes to Freeport Monday, hosts Traip Tuesday and plays at Lake Region Wednesday. In Western A, defending state champion Scarborough continues to have no peer. The Red Storm were 7-0 and first in the Heals at press time after recent wins at Thornton Academy (6-3) and Sanford (6-0). Scarborough found itself down 3-0 at the Golden Trojans, but erupted for four runs in the sixth to take the lead, capped by a clutch, twoout, two-run bases loaded single from Grace Farnkoff. The Red Storm added two more in the seventh and Erin Giles slammed the door. “It was really intense,” Farnkoff said. “I was getting nervous, but we knew we had to

stay calm. We know our offense is capable of so much and was capable of coming alive and it wound up happening.” “It was definitely nervewracking,” Giles said. “This was a really good game. Thornton’s an incredible team. We knew that going into this, but we were able to show what kind of team we are.” “We’ve played some great games over the years, but this is probably the most gutsy game I’ve seen the girls play,” Scarborough coach Tom Griffin added. “We were far from perfect. We made some big mistakes. They dug down and they found a way. I’m just so proud of them. They stayed focused and confident. Things worked out. We’re just really fortunate we came up with the big inning and found a way to win.” Against Sanford, Alyssa Williamson threw a four-hitter, striking out 10 batters. Chelsea Damon paced the offense with three RBI, Giles had three hits and Dominique Burnham scored twice and drove in a pair. The Red Storm goes to Deering Friday, hosts Noble (11 a.m.) and Massabesic (3 p.m.) in a Saturday doubleheader, welcomes McAuley Monday and visits Kennebunk Wednesday. South Portland is second to Scarborough in the Western A Heals with a 5-2 mark after recent victories at Massabesic (170, in six innings) and McAuley (8-3). Erin Bogdanovich had a six-hit shutout against the Mustangs, while Libby Grant and Laurine German both had three hits. Bogdanovich had three hits, three runs scored and earned a save against the Lions. The Red Riots were home with

Kennebunk Wednesday and Deering Thursday. They go to Marshwood Friday, welcome Cheverus Monday and play at Windham Tuesday.

Boys’ lacrosse – A win streak for the Red Riots South Portland’s boys’ lacrosse team started the year 1-4 against a very tough schedule, but since has won two straight to improve to 3-4 (fifth in the Western A Heals). Last Wednesday, the Red Riots handled visiting Bonny Eagle, 10-3, behind four goals from Thomas Leddy and three from Andrew Whipple. Monday, South Portland rolled at Windham, 12-1, as Mike Salvatore had three goals. Leddy, Joey DiBiase and Duncan Preston each scored twice. South Portland was at Thornton Academy Wednesday, then doesn’t play again until May 19 at home versus Waynflete. Scarborough is 7-0 and first in Western A after holding off visiting Deering, 7-6, last Wednesday and beating host Portland, 8-2, Friday. Against the Rams, the Red Storm had to hold on late and relied on goalie David Pearson to make 18 saves, several of them at critical times. John Wheeler had three goals to lead the offense. “It was kind of scary there,” Pearson said. “They came strong on us. It was hard to keep up with them. It felt like we had the momentum after the seventh goal, but they came back strong, which we expected would happen. We had to stay strong. We had good defense. They gave me shots I could see. I just had to make the saves.” “It’s been really good for us to have close games,” said Scarborough coach Joe Hezlep.

“It was a great game. Deering had a phenomenal performance.” Against Portland, Wheeler scored four goals, Pallotta three and Blaisdell one. Blaisdell and Wheeler each had two assists. Pearson made 10 saves. The Red Storm was home with Gorham Wednesday, then has a week off before its next test at Kennebunk. “We have to keep working hard, keep our mind on each game and not look ahead,” Wheeler said. “Of course we like the bulls-eye. We like the challenge.” “We need to improve on some of the simple stuff,” said Hezlep. “We have good things happening, we’ll be OK. It’s good coming down the stretch, we have Kennebunk, Yarmouth, Marshwood, Thornton. It’s a good way to end the season. It’ll be fun.” In Western B, Cape Elizabeth remains unbeaten and is first in the Heals. The Capers enjoyed recent wins at Waynflete (15-5), Yarmouth (12-8) and at home over Greely (14-5). Cape Elizabeth led the Flyers just 8-5 heading for the fourth quarter, but pulled away behind six goals from Alex Bornick. Bornick erupted for seven in the win at the Clippers. He got plenty of help from his teammates, including Adam Haversat, who won 15 of 17 faceoffs, and goalie Will Goduti, who made four key second half saves. “Today, we came out strong and possessed the ball a lot,” said Bornick, after the Yarmouth win. “I know when we get close games like that, it pushes us to go harder. That’s what we did. In our previous games, we’ve continued page 22

never looked back as Justin Cary scored a team-high five goals. Timmy Lavallee added four. “It’s great to have Timmy and Bornick on attack,” Cary said. “They give the assists like no one else. They’re great to work with. Defenses definitely focus on Timmy. Alex and I switch off. Having Timmy covered by the best man definitely helps. We’ve got Tom Bottomley, Forest Hewitt, Brian Brett, even Griffin (Thoreck), who’s a freshman. They can all finish.” Cape Elizabeth plays host to Cheverus Friday night. “Cheverus sticks out quite a bit because they’re worth a ton of points,” said Ray-

from page 21 done poorly in the first three quarters, then pulled it out in the end. When it gets close like that, we can’t keep it close.” “We played well at times and we played poorly at times,” Cape Elizabeth coach Ben Raymond said. “We fell asleep from time to time. We just don’t play consistently enough. When we played well, the ball was barely on the ground, we made good decisions and shot well. Then, we went to the other end of the spectrum.” Monday, the Capers shot to a 6-1 first quarter lead against the Rangers and

mond. “That’s a difference in ours and Famouth’s schedule. We have Cheverus and Kennebunk and they have Portland and Deering. If we can get the points off Cheverus, that will go a long way.” The Capers then go to Falmouth for a critical showdown next Wednesday, which will go a long way toward determining who has homefield advantage for the postseason. “Each game we play like it’s Falmouth,” said Cary. “It’s definitely a big game. No doubt about it.”

Girls’ lacrosse – Capers pass biggest test yet

On the girls’ side, Cape Elizabeth romped through its first five outings, including a 16-8 victory at York and a 14-6 home triumph over Yarmouth last week. Against the Wildcats, Talley Perkins had five goals, Hannah Newhall and Liz Robinson three each. In the Capers’ first victory over the Clippers this century,

Recap from page 22 Lauren Steidl scored five times and Abby McInerney added three goals. Monday, in the rain, Cape Elizabeth hosted a Greely squad it pounded, 19-8, in the season opener and when the Capers went up 8-2 in the first half, another easy win appeared imminent, but Cape Elizabeth didn’t score the final 30 minutes of the game and watched as the Rangers pulled within 8-7. Greely had a couple great looks in the waning seconds, but Capers goalie Elin Sonesson made clutch saves and Cape Elizabeth was able to hold on and improve to 6-0 (second to Waynflete in the Western B Heals). “We haven’t a game this close yet this season,” said Sonesson. “It was a lot more stressful than the last few games have been. I try to not think about the score. I try to forget about the goals I let in. I just try to focus on the ball. We kind of fell apart. We played a lot better in the first half. We beat them by a lot the first game. I think we thought it was in the bag. We had a lot of close games last year, but we’re not used to it this year.” “I’m about 10 years older, I think, after that,” said first-year Capers coach Jeff Perkins. “I think my eyes were closed. I saw the ball go up in the air and asked my assistant, ‘Did she make the stop?’ And she said, ‘Yeah.’ It was just phenomenal. She stepped up at the best time. It’s a tribute to Greely. I think we were cruising a little bit. They came out and played a great second half. Truthfully, we didn’t deserve to win that game. I love my girls, they played a great first half, but they didn’t answer the bell in the second half.” Steidl had three goals. Newhall and Perkins two apiece. Cape Elizabeth has a Heal Points-rich showdown at two-time defending Class A champion Scarborough Saturday. The Capers host Freeport Tuesday. “We have a big game against Scarborough Saturday,” Perkins said. “It’s all about getting homefield if you

can. I want to get a home game. We’re certainly playing the Heal Point game. Now we have to go out and really prove how good we are playing against the best team in Class A, which is Scarborough. This gives us something to work on. (The girls) all realize they got away with one. We’ll learn from it and try to be better. We have big games coming up and now we know we can play in a close game.” In Western A, defending state champion Scarborough is third behind Marshwood and Gorham with a 5-0 record. The Red Storm, after a week off, held off visiting Massabesic’s upset bid Monday, winning, 8-5, behind three goals from Laura Przybylowicz and a pair from Kelsey Howard. A free position goal from Kat Gadbois with 21:51 to play put Scarborough ahead to stay. “I love it,” said Red Storm coach Marcia Wood. “Just to have a close game is so nice. This could have easily been (Massabesic’s) game. I thought they played great defense. Their transition was decent and they have good shooters. The girls want to play well and make it an art form and make people in the stands appreciate girls’ lacrosse. We talked about making it pretty. We’re most successful when everyone’s involved, not just Kelsey, Laura, Maggie (Smith) and Mary (Scott).” Scarborough’s slate is about to get much tougher. After playing at Cheverus Thursday, the Red Storm hosts Cape Elizabeth Saturday and visits Thornton Academy Monday. “The rest of the way will be tough, but I look forward to it,” said Wood. “We’ll see what we’re made of. We can’t start slowly the rest of the year.” South Portland dominated visiting Noble, 15-4, last Thursday, but fell to 2-3 (and 10th in Western A) with a 6-3 home loss to Westbrook Monday. In the victory, Olivia Edwards and Anh Nguyen both scored four times, while Lani Edwards had three goals. Ericka Lightner had two goals in the defeat. The Red Riots were at Biddeford Thursday, go to Freeport



Saturday and host McAuley Tuesday.

Track Cape Elizabeth’s outdoor track team joined Poland at Falmouth Monday. The boys came in second to the hosts and the girls placed third. For the boys, Deven Roberts won the 110 hurdles (17.8 seconds). Billy Brooks took the 100 (12.05) and 200 (24.2). Catherine Tierney took second in the racewalk (10 minutes, 2.4 seconds), Alissa Mitchell in the shot put (27 feet, 7.5 inches) and the 3,200 relay team (11:31.4) all were runners-up in the girls’ competition. Scarborough hosted Gorham, Westbrook and Windham last Thursday and both Red Storm teams had first-place finishes. The boys’ effort was keyed by wins

from Ryan Jamison in the 200 (24.08), Wout Moulin in the 800 (2:08.42) and the mile (4:39.88), Alec James in the pole vault (12-6), Kevin Manning in the javelin (147-4) and the 400 (46.10) and 3,200 (8:38.43) relay teams. The girls’ squad got victories from Nicole Kirk in the 100 (13.04) and 200 (26.42), Emily Tolman in the 400 (1:00.15) and long jump (15-8), Sarah Rinaldi in the high jump (4-8), Andrea Tolman in the pole vault (9-6), Courtney Alofs in the discus (101-3), Haela BoothHowe in the javelin (105-4) and all three relay teams (400, 51.90; 1,600, 4:11.04; 3,200, 11:08.98).

Out & About

‘Best of Broadway’ is Portland’s best show By Scott Andrews As the middle of May approaches on the calendar, the fall-winter-spring phase of the year’s arts and entertainment offerings is drawing to a close. But there’s still plenty of time to catch a few quality acts. Portland’s biggest event of the weekend happens Saturday: the “Best of Broadway” fundraiser for the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center. This annual event has been a personal favorite of mine for years. The Public Theatre of Lewiston-Auburn is wrapping up its 2011-2012 season this weekend with a fully professional production of “On Golden Pond,” Ernest Thompson’s wonderfully warm play about growing old on a Maine lake. The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra wraps up its season with a pair of concerts this weekend in Lewiston and Topsham. In a preview of summer, the Portland Chamber Music Festival presents its annual off-season concert on Friday in Freeport.

potential of this woodwind in a cheerful, gallant style. Two other works are on the program. Igor Stravinsky’s “Petrushka” is a brilliantly colorful, acerbic and rhythmically riveting ballet score. Some of the tunes are reminiscent of Russian folk material, but everything is exaggerated, often to a point of grotesqueness. Stravinsky’s overall idea is to portray Old Russia as exotically colorful and deliciously chaotic. Leonard Bernstein’s overture to “Candide,” a 1956 Broadway musical, boasts sparkling orchestration and witty rhythmic play. The program will be presented twice: May 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the FrancoAmerican Heritage Center at St. Mary’s Church in Lewiston and May 13 at 2:30 p.m. at the Orion Performing Arts Center at Mt. Ararat Middle School in Topsham. Call 846-5378.

Portland Chamber Music Festival

‘Best of Broadway’ Why mess with success? When a fundraising event such as the annual “Best of Broadway” consistently connects with audiences and clicks at the box office, there’s no need to change the successful formula. Now in its 21st annual edition, the “Best of Broadway” song-and-dance show earns about $35,000 for a terrific cause: The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center. As readers of “Out & About” know well, I’ve been going to “Best of Broadway” nearly every year since the inception and I count it among my personal favorites. The show is co-directed by the husbandwife team of Steve and Jane Filieo of South Portland, and their formula hasn’t changed much over the years: Assemble a few dozen actors, actresses, musicians and dancers from all over southern Maine, then create a stirring Broadway revue of about two dozen hits. All the performers are volunteers who give up many hours of their time to rehearse the show, beginning in February. The format revolves around an ensemble of five men and five women, all veterans of Maine musical productions. This year’s ensemble comprises Todd Daley, Larry Jones, Jeremiah Haley, Kammy Marcotte, Jennifer McLeod, Marilyn Minsky Melton, Bethann Renaud, Tim Salce, Karen Stickney and John York. Two dance companies join forces for the evening, Maine State Ballet and Portland Ballet. Kim Block and Doug Rafferty, known for their years at WGME, are co-hosts. Beth Barefoot, another “Best of Broadway” veteran, is music director. I love the Filieos’ eclectic selection of numbers and shows. Old-time Broadway shows include “Babes in Arms,” “Kiss Me Kate,” “I Do! I Do! and “She Loves Me.” Newer classics include “Hairspray,” “Drowsy Chaperone,” “Jekyll & Hyde” and “Lion King.” There’s one 7:30 p.m. performance May 12 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

‘On Golden Pond’ One of the most moving plays of

Mike Genovese and Ellen Crawford star in the Public Theatre’s season-ending production of "On Golden Pond," Ernest Thompson’s warm play about growing old on a lakeside camp in Maine.

modern times is Ernest Thompson’s “On Golden Pond,” a 1979 Broadway depiction of an elderly couple’s summer at their rustic lakeside camp in Maine. It’s especially poignant, with many personal connections for many people in this state. On a personal note, my parents spent 58 happy summers at their Golden Pond in Oxford County. The Public Theatre of Lewiston-Auburn is ending its season with a wonderfully warm, fully professional (Equity contract) production of “On Golden Pond.” I loved this show in all its many aspects. Two veterans of the Public Theatre, both familiar faces on television and movies, have the lead roles. Mike Genovese plays the 80-year-old retired professor, a lovingly curmudgeonly and acerbically witty character. Ellen Crawford (his wife in real life) plays his longtime wife and mother of their one child, daughter Chelsea, played by Beth Hylton. Longstanding generational conflicts provide the emotional horsepower that drives the stage drama, and James Alexander provides the wonderfully evocative

Midcoast Symphony Orchestra The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra wraps up its 2011-2012 season this weekend with concerts on Saturday and Sunday. Maestro Rohan Smith will conduct the orchestra, and he’s invited oboe virtuoso John Ferrillo to be the MSO’s guest artist. Ferrillo, best known as a first chair player with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, will play the demanding solo part in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Oboe Concerto in C Major. It’s an elegant, melodic piece that shows the virtuosic

Over the course of two decades, the Portland Chamber Music Festival has established itself as one of Maine’s foremost summer events. So why has artistic director Jennifer Elowitch slated a concert for mid-May? One good reason is that May is National Chamber Music Month. All over America small ensembles and performing arts organizations are scheduling special concerts to mark the occasion. This Friday’s concert features five musicians: Elowitch and Gabriela Diaz will play violin, with Stephanie Taylor on viola and Marc Johnson on his 1730 Stradivarius cello. New York clarinetist Jo-Ann Sternberg will be the lone nonstring player. Composers include Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonin Dvorak, Rebecca Clarke and Charles Wuorninen. Clarke is currently enjoying a posthumous revival, spearheaded by the Massachusetts based Rebecca Clarke Society. The British-born composer lived her later years in New York. Wuorninen is a contemporary American and a Pulitzer Prize winner who currently lives in New York. The Portland Chamber Music Festival is also straying from its namesake city for this concert, which is slated for 8 p.m. May 11 at the Freeport Performing Arts Center, 30 Holbrook St. Call 888-7027730.

Market from page 4 Business at last year's market, at the tip of the Knightville peninsula, was slower than expected. Jordan has said that while a slew of rainy Thursdays didn't help, turnout was low because the market was too far out of the way. The move to Hinckley Drive, she said, is vital to the market's survival. "It's kind of a make-it-or-bust year for the farmers market, to be as frank as possible," she told the Planning Board on Tuesday. "If the vendors don't have a good year this year, nobody's going to come back and the market will cease to exist." The Mill Creek Transit Hub, a major stop for South Portland buses, will move to Thomas Street during the hours the market is open. Public parking during the market is available on nearby streets and at City Hall. Last week, Hannaford Bros. offered to let the Farmers Market operate in its supermarket parking lot on Cottage Road. The farmers said that would be OK, but city ordinance requires the market to operate on public land. "The Hannaford site, unfortunately, did not get enough time to really have a good, thorough discussion," City Manager Jim Gailey said. "The offer was very generous, but unfortunately it was kind of late in the game." Jordan submitted the paperwork for the market on Monday, May 7, and the market had planned to open for the season on Thursday, May 10. But the opening was postponed for one week because the city needed more time to process the paperwork filed by each vendor. The decision to move the market was fraught with political maneuvering and hurt feelings. Visit us online at

After a proposal earlier this year to build a large sign directing people to the market at Thomas Knight Park failed to gain councilors' support, Councilor Jerry Jalbert, who opposed the sign, asked Jordan why the farmers didn't simply move to Hinckley Drive. Jordan told him it was because an advisory committee created by the city to consult with farmers on the market wouldn't allow it. De Angelis, who spearheads the committee, said Jordan never even asked about Hinckley Drive. At this point, tension between the market and the advisory committee was already high and communication had broken down. A frustrated Jordan used an expletive in an email to vendors that said she was "... sick of the advisory committee." Either way, the committee was not consulted about the proposal to close Hinckley Drive and move the vendors. Being passed over left De Angelis feeling the process was not respected. "It feels like a very nontransparent process. Things were done kind of behind the scenes, and that's upsetting to me," she said Wednesday. Smith, who said she voted against the move because she supported the Hannaford plan that wouldn't result in a street closure, said that while the advisory committee should have been consulted, what's done is done. "Sometimes it's messy and sometimes it's clean," she said Wednesday. "This time around, obviously, it wasn't very clean. But we came through the other side."

Councilors file disclosure statements SCARBOROUGH — For the first time since a rule requiring them to do so was enacted in 2009, town councilors have filed disclosure statements about relatives who draw income from town employment or contracts. Councilors are required to disclose any family member who receives more than $1,000 per year, but are not required to disclose how much they earn. Most councilors had nothing to report, but these three made disclosures:

Richard Sullivan disclosed that his brother, Dan Sullivan, is hired by the town for lawn management services. Jessica Holbrook disclosed that Ronald Ahlquist, her second-cousin, is a town councilor and draws more than $1,000 in his council stipend. She also disclosed that Ben Holbrook, her husband, is a foreman for Creative Office Pavilion, which periodically contracts with the town, although he is not personally involved in contracting.

Ronald Ahlquist disclosed that Judy Ahlquist, his sister-in-law, is a bus driver for the Scarborough School Department; Carl Ahlquist III, a second cousin, is a Scarborough firefighter; Eric Berry, another second cousin, is a Scarborough emergency dispatcher, and Jessica Holbrook, another second cousin, is a town councilor.

Ethics from page 1

expulsion from the council or any fines, the censure could hang over his head if he seeks re-election. “It’s a comment collectively, on the part of the council, about a councilor’s integrity,” Hall said. Questions surrounding Sullivan’s effort to replace the town’s organic pest management policy with a synthetic-friendly approach have left Hall wondering what to do this year. Procedural snafus abounded during the April 18 Council meeting, including two councilors “abstaining,” despite rules requiring them to vote. The vote itself has also been called into question. While the six councilors present on April 18 seemed to believe they had voted (or “abstained”) on Sullivan’s proposal, procedural rules suggest they may have actually voted simply to end debate. Last week, councilors amended the April 18 minutes to show that no vote on Sullivan’s proposal ever took place. That means the council could potentially hold another vote. For now, Hall said the policy on the books is the one requiring the use of organics. But he said he doesn’t want to award a contract to a company for an organics-only strategy if the council is going to change its mind. The contracting process became even hazier this week when Hall learned that Comment on this story at:

one of the three companies in the running for the town’s contract has been accused of fraudulent business practices before the Maine Board of Pesticide Control. Purely Organics, which Hall said had been the favorite of town staff, allegedly applied synthetic products to public turf in South Portland and at Colby College, despite having agreed to an organic pest management plan. Purely Organics made a $30,000 bid for the town’s pest management contract. Hall said he’d like to wait and see what the council does before awarding a contract. “I can’t wait forever,” he said. “The grass is growing.” Neither Council Chairman Ron Ahlquist or Council Vice Chairwoman Judith Roy responded to calls for comment. Sullivan has asked that his ethics hearing be held as soon as possible. Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or Follow him on Twitter: @riocarmine.

Budget from page 2 budget, which we did." The budget cuts four positions – a warehouse clerk, two library clerks and a high school science teacher – but funds 35 positions that were previously paid with federal stimulus and Jobs Bill funds. Livingston said it wasn't good enough. "Last Monday, I felt insulted to listen to the same rhetoric from the superintendent about how we'd lost money from (the stimulus) and from state funding," he said. "... I don't think we should be adding new positions with the way things are, with the economy." Livingston also complained about the school's habit of carrying a surplus every year. Frequent School Board critic Albert DiMillo Jr. has also decried the surplus. He says carrying over extra money every year means residents are paying more in taxes than education actually costs. In January, that surplus amounted to about $3 million, but next year's budget calls 5 for spending $1.05 million of the

surplus. The School Board has defended its surplus, saying that most of the money isn't actually unallocated, but sits in reserve accounts for costly expenses like bus replacement and technology upgrades. Councilor Tom Coward said that while the budget is large, it's not unreasonable. "This is a cost that's required for public education in a major Maine municipality in the 21st century," he said. "This is not something that we can or should afford to do on the cheap."

Now the decision is up to voters. Of the nearly $39.9 million budget, $36.8 million will be contributed by taxpayers. Add another $1.9 million slated to pay down debt and save for the South Portland High School renovations – spending already approved by voters – and city property owners are facing a 4.4 percent tax increase for education. For the average South Portland homeowner, the budget represents a $90 tax increase over the current year. If voters reject the budget, another

budget must be hashed out and approved by the School Board and the council before going back to residents for another vote. If residents don't approve a budget by July 1, the most recent School Board budget is adopted until they do. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 15, at the South Portland Community Center, 21 Nelson Road. Absentee ballots are available at City Hall.

committee, as well as the top-level SPHS Building Committee, which oversaw project planning. The girls talked about spending long nights with the committee, hashing out details as varied as floor plans and the acoustic-enhancing fabric for the walls of the new lecture hall. Both were ecstatic about having been involved in the process. "I hear my name might even be on a plaque," Ferrell said. "I'm really excited about all of this."

The project is at least five years years in the making. A $56 million bond referendum for renovation failed in 2007. Richard Rottkov, a SPHS employee and member of "Renew SPHS," a group that formed to support the 2010 referendum for the school construction, said it's a relief to finally have it under way. "It's like being a Red Sox fan who never thought they'd see the World Series," he said.

Unsung hero from page 6 Tedford Housing’s adult facility includes beds for 19 people (15 men and four women). The ages of the residents range from 18 to 70 and older. The typical stay is 30-50 days, although circumstances might require some residents to stay longer. No one is turned away, if there is room. Tedford also runs a family facility in Brunswick and supportive facilities in Bath, Lewiston and Auburn. In addition to support from the state and the United Way, Tedford relies upon the support of individuals and area restaurants and supermarkets. Although she’s proud of the impact she’s having on people in need, Wilson doesn’t accept the “hero” label. “I’m not a hero,” she said. “I’m just a typical person trying to make it.” At the same time, she knows she’s right where she wants to be. “I’ve found my calling,” she said. “Tedford is my home away from home.”

to him,” she said. Lanoie is already familiar with ACTEM. He has been involved with the organization for more than a decade, serving as president from 2003-2006. ACTEM has more than 130 institutional members and 800 individual members, and acts as a consortium to provide discounted software licensing fees for school districts while also hosting conferences and workshops. Lanoie’s tenure in local schools is twice that of Eismeier’s: he began teaching industrial arts in 1974 and headed the department at Cape Elizabeth High School before becoming technology coordinator in 1997. An interest in desktop publishing set Lanoie, 60, on the path to becoming technology coordinator, he said. But when it seemed the district was not coordinating its efforts to embrace the coming digital era in the mid-1990s, he helped write a report creating a strategy, including hiring a coordinator for the district. He did not get the job at first, but was appointed a year later, almost as former Gov. Angus King introduced the idea of providing laptop computers for middle school students. “I was not 100 percent sold on it at first, but it made a huge difference in our classrooms,” Lanoie said. About 15 years later, Lanoie sees a future beyond laptops and servers in school and local government. Cape Elizabeth High

School students now use iPads, bought to replace laptops this spring. In the basement of Town Hall, local servers are being replaced by distant ones maintained by Google, the “cloud” technology that reduces demands on Lanoie and his three staffers. The future will bring more refinements. Eismeier noted elementary school students now have cell phones, although school policy requires them to keep them in lockers during the day. Lanoie noted the phones are so advanced “you are carrying a computer in your pocket now.” Eismeier’s journey to Pond Cove was roundabout. He was born in New Jersey, taught in south Chicago and Brooklyn, then moved on to teaching and administrative positions in Vermont before he was hired by former Superintendent Constance Goldman. “What principals really appreciate is parental involvement in a good way and quality teaching,” Eismeier said. “The role of a principal is to support good teaching. I’ve seen a lot of people step up and be leaders,” Eismeier said while admitting he “never liked the hierarchy” in being a principal. Eismeier was awarded the Cape Elizabeth Education Foundation 2008 Brownell Award for the best use of a foundation grant.

annual Maine Teacher of the Year award. Eismeier also had kind words for Lanoie and the technology coordinator’s ability to integrate technology and learning. “He understands technology as a tool, and he loves teaching adults, too,” Eismeier said. He credited Lanoie with seeing the potential of whiteboards, multimedia devices with Internet capabilities that can project classroom lessons for students to view. The whiteboards are now part of daily learning at Pond Cove. The school also has a pilot program using an iPad in kindergarten and first grade. Learning is also better served in smaller groups within classes, Eismeier said, while praising teachers and staff for always being open to innovation. Teaching has been enhanced by technology, but Eismeier said he is also pleased he and staff stressed outdoor education and play as well. Working with the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust, school staff used Robinson Woods for tours and school projects. There was always time for play and enjoying childhood, Eismeier said. “I had to take them outside and teach them to play four-square,” he said. “They are innocent in many ways. Kids are kids.”

from page 1 the way it defines and documents the use of such tactics. “I probably will stay with this issue for a long time,” Davis said. “I’m kind of driven now.” Davis and other parents and student advocates say that the new Chapter 33 – the rule governing restraints and seclusion – is a dramatic improvement over the old version. They also say it isn’t far-reaching enough. “It’s a tremendous step in the right direction,” said Diane Smith Howard, a Maine attorney now working with the National Disability Rights Network in Washington, D.C. Howard said nine states have no regulations at all regarding the use of restraints. “I’m glad Maine has what it does,” she said. “But it’s not even enough.” The major changes to Chapter 33 include clearer definitions of restraint and seclusion. It jettisons the previously used term “therapeutic restraint” in favor of “physical restraint.” “It’s confusing for schools to call it ‘therapeutic,’ because it’s not,” Davis said. Being held down by school staffers, even when necessary to protect themselves or others from harm, can be traumatic for a student, she said. She believes her son, now a secondgrader at Falmouth Elementary School, suffered from a form of post-traumatic

stress disorder after being restrained by staff. The changes to Chapter 33 limit the use of restraints and seclusion to situations in which “a student presents imminent risk of injury or harm to the student or others” and where less intensive interventions been unsuccessful. The previous version also allowed schools to use those methods to stop a student from damaging property; under the new rule that is not sufficient justification to restrain a child, Deb Friedman, the state Department of Education director of policy and programs, said. The new rule also strengthens the complaint process for parents – no such process had even been required under the old rule – and ensures that incidents involving restraint or seclusion will be followed up with debriefings for staff and students involved. It requires school staff to revisit their tactics if a student is restrained three times in a school year, Friedman said. On the whole, “I think there’s more of a preventative element to (the new Chapter 33) and I think that’s a good thing,” she said. But the stakeholder committee that crafted the new version was cut short by the legislative time line and collectively had to prioritize its goals, Davis said. That left some sections of the rule weaker than she and others would have liked. She is still worried about the safety of

May 11, 2012

seclusion rooms, and thinks they should be included under fire safety and building codes. In some sections, “I wanted more powerful wording,” said Scarborough mother Jude Herb, who also worked on the committee to write the new version. Herb said that she wished the rule explicitly banned holds known as “prone restraints,” which typically involve holding a student face down on the floor. Prone restraints can injure students, and in some national cases, students have died after being restrained. Instead, the new version of Chapter 33 states “no physical restraint may be used that restricts the free movement of the diaphragm or chest or that restricts the airway so as to interrupt normal breathing or speech.” It’s a matter of semantics, perhaps, but Herb said that in this case, the “wordy” document is clearer in its intention than in its language. While the new rule requires schools to document incidents and report on their frequency at the school, district, and state levels, it is less clear what will happen with those reports, or whether they will be used as “problem-solving” tools, Davis said. And exactly how the rule will be enforced is still fuzzy, Howard said. “I think right now what we have is not clear enough in the enforcement piece,” she said. If a child is injured at school, or if there is belief the regulations weren’t followed, she said, there isn’t a clear requirement for a Department of Education investigation.

“The rules are much better than they were, and children will be much safer than they were, but I do have concerns about enforcement. What good are regulations if there’s no way to enforce them?” Howard asked. Though the issue has had some public discussion thanks to the legislative process and an award-winning series of articles published by The Forecaster beginning in 2010, some school districts still struggle with the use of restraints. “In Brunswick there have been incidents where restraint has taken place and notification has not been timely,” said Ginger Taylor, the founder of a support group for parents called Greater Brunswick Special Families. The issue is more often discussed among the parents in the group this year than in the past, she said. “I know there are a lot of parents that are very concerned,” Taylor said. As Chapter 33 becomes the official guideline over the coming months, student advocates like Davis will see whether the revisions are effective. They hope their efforts will make for noticeable improvements. The drives to Augusta, payments for gas and child care, all-day meetings and hundreds of hours of personal research were worth it, Davis said. “I’m so proud of it, and honored to be part of it and see that I helped pass this law,” she said.
