City unveils $10M plan for Public Works

Nov. bond referendum likely By Mario Moretto

SOUTH PORTLAND — City Councilors on Monday got their first look at plans for a new, integrated facility for the Public Works, Transportation and Parks departments. The plan calls for a 65,000-square-foot building at the city’s transfer station property on Highland Avenue. It would feature covered parking for all service vehicles, a seven-bay maintenance garage and shared administrative space. City Manager Jim Gailey said the facility would save the city money in the long run by consolidating space and services, and extending the lifespan of city equipment. The challenge, councilors said, will be convincing voters to approve the $10 million or more it

Summer means beach, burgers, business for Cape college students By Mario Moretto SCARBOGOUGH — For two recent Cape Elizabeth High School grads, hawking T-shirts or waiting tables just wasn’t going to cut it for summer employment. Ben Berman and Jack Barber, both 19, had bigger ideas. They wanted to be their own bosses, to flex their entrepreneurial muscles. Enter Mainely Burgers, the brainchild of the two college students, who will park their new food truck at Scarborough Beach State Park June 1 through Labor Day. “We get to be at the beach all summer,” Berman said in an interview last week. “You can’t beat that.” The teenage partners have been friends since they were 2 years old. Last year, they moved to the Boston area for their freshman years at college – Berman at Tufts University, Barber at Boston College. They met every Thursday to sample the burgers Beantown had to offer.

Mainely Burgers’ foodtruck features a 36-inch griddle, stovetop, oven, and deep fryer.

Those weekly gastronomical outings quickly became research for the idea to operate a food truck. “At first we sort of joked that our entire business plan was just the recipes we texted back and forth,” Berman said. Eventually, the idea turned into a 20-page business plan.

They showed the plan to investors – friends and family with cash to spare (Barber has been in the food business his whole life; his family founded Barber Foods in Portland) – and got the ball rolling. That’s also when they approached Scarborough Beach State Park and got the go-ahead to set up there this summer. In January, they ordered their truck from a company in Florida. It arrived, wrapped and ready to go, in Cape Elizabeth earlier this month. Along the way, they’ve incorporated their business; received the necessary state and local licenses, approvals and inspections, and even hired some employees – their younger brothers. “For people our age, this is a big continued page 26

The parade route follows Ocean House Road north to the War Veteran's Memorial on Scott Dyer Road. Veterans and active duty personnel are invited to march

Cape Elizabeth librarian earns state honor CAPE ELIZABETH — As he prepares for the future of Thomas Memorial Library, library director Jay Scherma earned high honors for his past contributions. Scherma was named Maine's Outstanding Librarian by the Maine Library Association at its annual conference in Orono on May 20. Scherma's work developing the state inter-library lending program and his advocacy for using technology in libraries was praised, and Town Manager Michael McGovern said Scherma has also hired a skilled staff that has had a long tenure. "Jay has led our library through challenging times," McGovern said. "He has found ways to extend the life of a crowded library building by constantly finding new areas to display books."

S. Portland man arrested Cape art contest seeks in string of credit info thefts woodsy images SOUTH PORTLAND — Police on May 17 arrested a man suspected of several thefts and misuse of credit cards in greater Portland. At about 6 p.m., Eric Merrill, 27, of South Portland, was arrested in the parking lot of the Best Western Hotel on Main Street on a warrant for theft and Merrill misuse of credit card information. Police later searched his hotel room at the Holiday Inn Express on Sable Oaks Drive, which resulted in additional theft charges. Merrill's tactic, police said in a press release, was to enter schools, office buildings and doctors' offices to steal small electronic devices and credit cards. Police allege he used the pilfered credit account information to buy gift cards. The Portland Police Department located Merrill, assisted South Portland police with the arrest, and assisted with the drafting and service of the warrant.

A brief ceremony follows the parade, and the public is then invited to Post 76 on Manson Libby Road for a flag raising and open house beginning at 11:45 a.m. In South Portland, members of VFW Post 832 and American Legion Post 35 invite the public to join them at 9 a.m.

CAPE ELIZABETH — Artists and photographers are invited to present their views of Robinson Woods II in a "Forever Yours" contest sponsored by the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust. From June 1-15, the trust will accept imagery depicting scenes of the 63-acre property off Shore Road. Contest rules are on the land trust website. Contest entrants will receive a T-shirt and contest entries will posted be on the land trust website and Facebook page. The 12 best entries will be used for note cards given to contributors to the trust campaign to buy the land. Winning contributors will also receive a set of note cards with winning art.

The trust is in the process of acquiring the land, adjacent to the 80-acre Robinson Woods parcel already owned by the trust.

South Portland keeps highest bond rating SOUTH PORTLAND — The city received a AAA bond rating from Moody's Analytics, making the city the highestrated municipality in the state, according to a city official. Finance Director Greg L'Heureux said the Moody's rating – the highest awarded by the firm – and a AA-plus rating from Standard & Poor's have already benefited the city through a lower interest rate on a $30 million bond for the renovation at South Portland High School.

That 10-year bond comes with an effective interest rate of about 2.52 percent, L'Heureux said, about 0.2 percent lower than it would have been if South Portland had received a less favorable rating from Moody's. Bond ratings are a measure of a municipality's ability to pay down debt. South Portland has maintained its AAA/ AA-plus rating for about two years. Nearby Portland has a AA1 rating from Moody's (one step below South Portland) and a AA rating from S&P.

South Portland loses its Mojo to Cape Elizabeth By David Harry

Comment on this story at:

CAPE ELIZABETH — By early next month, Jacqueline Bradley expects to have her Mojo working closer to home. Bradley, owner of Mojo Health Bar, said she plans to reopen the business at 299 Ocean House Road by June 2. "I wanted to be in the town I live in and where my community is located," she said about the combination massage center and juice bar.

http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/124428

Ocean House roads will provide better visibility. "I think it is a better drive-by location," she said.

Bradley opened Mojo in August 2010 on Cottage Road in South Portland. Bradley, who was born in England, came to Maine by way of California about three years before.

Bradley said she will no longer be serving coffee, but fresh juices and smoothies will be available.

She said the business was well received, but the new location near the intersection of Shore, Scott Dyer and

"I'm honing it back to the things I love," she said, adding she will try to use local sources for fruits and produce.

Central Maine Power’s Tree Care program helps keep the lights on Tree Care is an important part of our efforts to deliver the reliable electricity delivery service you depend on. Because protecting the health of your trees is important, our contractors use techniques sanctioned by the Tree Care Industry Association.

Strawberries from Maxwell's Farm proved very popular in juices and smoothies last year, she said.

After opening in South Portland on the weekend of the TD Banknorth Beach to Beacon 10K in 2010, Bradley said she wants to reopen in town in time for the June 3 Cape Challenge 5K race, which is sponsored by parent teacher associations in town schools.

CMP understands that you may want to be personally consulted before our contractors prune trees along roads that border your property. If you would like to be consulted, please write to CMP, Vegetation Management Department, 83 Edison Drive, Augusta, ME 04336. Include your name, street address and your CMP account number. You will be placed on a permanent list and will be contacted whenever we are pruning adjacent to your property, except in emergency conditions.

Cape Elizabeth resident Jacqueline Bradley plans to reopen Mojo Health Bar on June 2 at its new location at 299 Ocean House Road. Bradley opened the massage therapy center, juice and coffee bar on Cottage Road in South Portland almost two years ago.

Bradley and her two children will not be behind the counter at Mojo, because they are running the race, she said.

We’ll be trimming trees in these towns in 2012: Portland, Long Island, South Portland, Falmouth, Gray, Cumberland, Windham

Mojo has three massage therapists on staff. They provide 15- and 30-minute sessions for customers of all ages, Bradley said.

"I've had a lot of people taking advantage of the shorter session," she said, adding she has also seen younger athletes come in for pre- and post-game massage therapies. Bradley and her staff offer deep tissue, aromatherapy, hot stone and reflexology treatments.

To open at her new location, last occupied by a land development company, Bradley needed Planning Board approval to amend the use of the building from office space to personal services and restaurant use. The board approved the amendment May 15. David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @DavidHarry8.

For lands’ sake

Collaborative aims to make life easier for trusts By Andrew Cullen YARMOUTH — Alan Stearns believes “land conservation is growing up.” Stearns, the executive director of the Royal River Conservation Trust, spoke as he followed a trail May 18 at the Spear Farms Estuary Preserve. Maine’s many land trusts, and their volunteers, can’t operate “in bake-sale mode for the next 50 years,” Stearns said. “Bake-sale mode isn’t sustainable.” The responsibilities of acquiring and maintaining land for conservation can sometimes be a stretch for land trusts built on the backs of well-meaning volunteers with limited skills, knowledge, or time. Most, including those with the luxury of some paid staff, like the Royal River trust, are too small to do everything, and need to outsource some of their work, Stearns said. Increasingly, conservation groups with small, but specific geographic focuses are banding together to share the workload and expertise. For eight land trusts in Cumberland and York counties, that’s where the Portland-based Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative comes in. The collaborative grew out of the dissolution last year of the Portland North

Jessica Burton, director of the recently formed Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative. The Portland-based collaborative provides administrative support and other services to land trusts in Cumberland and York counties.

Land Trust Collaborative, which split when the Falmouth Land Trust decided that it was ready to stand on its own after a five-year partnership with the Oceanside Conservation Trust of Casco Bay and the Chebeague and Cumberland Land Trust. Each of the three rely on volunteer efforts to operate, and the Oceanside and Chebeague and Cumberland trusts felt they would continue to benefit from cooperative work, said Jessica Burton, the collaborative director, who also worked continued page 36

Unsung Hero: Tony Vigue, community TV go-to guy Unsung Heroes

I’ll clean when I’m dead I think I’ve seen the bottom of my kitchen sink for a total of three hours in the past decade. And I’ve given up any hope of reaching for a spatula while cooking, and actually finding it in the utensil drawer. I already know its location: under the baking sheet under the pot under the pyramid of cereal bowls. In the sink. No Sugar Clutter is not my friend. Neither is cleaning. The cleaning gene somehow failed to be passed down to me. I would rather do just about anything than clean my house. I love having parties and inviting company over; company is merely a vehicle for getting my house clean. I can only clean when under pressure. And even then, I have my limitations. Sandi Amorello I once had a friend come to town, and threw a party to coincide with her visit. Sixteen minutes before my guests were due to arrive, I found her in my bathroom, cleaning the toilet. I, meanwhile, had no problem with the state of my toilet and was flitting around lighting candles and making sure the cloth napkins were artfully folded. I never notice anyone’s toilet when I’m at a party. I do however, notice whether the hors d’oeuvres are presented

in an eye-pleasing, color-coordinated manner. Thankfully, I’ve given birth to three children – one of whom was clearly the result of an immaculate conception, because there’s simply no way he could be the product of any egg and sperm combination from my late husband and myself. Since a young age, it’s been apparent that my oldest son is a miracle – everything in his room is perpendicular, parallel, folded, straightened, arranged, dusted and Windexed. He loves to clean. Drew and I used to look at one another, perplexed, and thank the stork for bringing this wonder of nature into our lives. And now that Harold is a teenager, I’m even more awe-struck. How many mothers are awakened at midnight by the sound of their teenage son vacuuming his room? Without any prompting? How many mothers return from a long car journey, desperate to pee — only to be greeted by a roll of toilet tissue whose end has been folded into a neat little point? Much like at The Four Seasons. Or The Ritz. The last time this happened, I obtained photographic evidence because no one would ever believe me. Unfortunately, Harold’s God-given propensity toward neatness is a gift bestowed upon neither of his siblings. Ophelia’s bedroom can best be described this way: take the contents of a Goodwill store, an antique store, a Sephora store, an art supply store, Barnes and Nobel, and possibly one wing of New York’s Museum of Natural History. Stuff into a cannon and fire into a space the size of a large dog kennel. And there you have it. Disaster.

Harold’s room is positioned diagonally from hers and if both doors are open, there’s a clean line of vision. This is a rare occurrence, since it causes him to break out in hives. Charles’ room is similar in flavor to Ophelia’s, except the contents of his particular cannon come from a guitar store, GameStop, the CIA’s weaponry arsenal, Dick’s Sporting Goods and a Las Vegas lounge singer’s dressing room. My own room is part cannon fire, part Buddhist monk sanctuary. Depending upon the day of the week. And the phase of the moon. There have been times when I’ve budgeted money for a housekeeper. And truthfully, someone cleaning my home on a weekly basis remains in my top three fantasies. But for someone to clean, you must first unearth the surfaces in need of attention. And that’s too dismal a task on most days. I have a dwarf Belgian bunny renting space in my living room, and three children who are not moving out in the foreseeable future. When they do, I will surely miss them. And perhaps then I might be inspired to clean. But really, I’m thinking just seeing the bottom of the sink will be enough.

Frank’s health-care analysis is flawed The last sentence of Halsey Frank's recent column describes a limited government health-care environment that I would support. However, his apparent understanding of the U.S. health-care system, foreign systems and alternatives is not consistent with reality. For example, long waits for care in foreign countries only occur in a few countries: England and Canada being the two principal ones, and there critical cases are handled immediately. In Japan there is no wait; people there usually don't even make an appointment. Furthermore, the World Health Organization rates our system near the bottom of those of other developed countries. We excel only in cost: about 50 percent more of our GDP is spent on health care than France spends, the next on the cost list and the health provider country ranked highest by the WHO. I suggest that Mr. Frank read "The Healing of America" by T.R. Reid, which covers these areas in detail and has extensive supporting references. That read should replace the factually-unsupported "I am skeptical of such claims of vast superiority, and mindful of anecdotes about problems with European national health services ... ." In addition, Mr. Frank expressed concern about "bureaucrats making decisions about who gets what treatment ... ." I would be similarly concerned but I am even more distrustful of insurance company clerks making decisions which are not only inconsistent from company to company but are motivated by profit rather than patient health. Unfortunately, a description of alternatives is beyond the scope of this letter. Ken Mathews Brunswick

Millett in Senate District 7 Democratic primary Please join me in supporting Rebecca Millett as Democratic candidate for the Maine Senate District 7 seat. She is the one candidate who has the most practical business and public service experience positioning her for highly effective leadership on our behalf in Augusta. She is an intelligent and tireless individual who does not shy away from challenges. Her work in helping the former Soviet satellite state of Ukraine transform from a command economy to a free market system speaks volumes about her abilities and tenacity. Rebecca’s experience in both the private and public sectors will be critically important and useful given the current economic and political climate in Maine (and our nation). Rebecca is the one candidate who is prepared for the challenge, and has the work ethic, intellect and desire to get things done for the citizens of our community. Kevin J. Stilphen Cape Elizabeth

Beem’s position serves those he opposes I typically enjoy Edgar Allen Beem’s cranky columns, but disagree with his recent piece dismissing the relevance of the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting. In my view, the center’s work since its inception commendably satisfies its objective of “helping fully inform Maine’s citizens regarding the actions of its government and public servants.” To the extent one subscribes, as I do, to the view that power corrupts, it is not surprising that the uncomfortable spotlight of the center’s investigative scrutiny has generally been more embarrassing to Democrats, as for two decades before the Republican sweep in 2010, the Democratic Party

When conscience comes too late There’s something about coming to the end of one’s days that focuses the attention. When all pretense is stripped bare, when there’s no further need to posture, when approval, status, and earthly reward Global become meaningless, even the mighty – perhaps especially the mighty – look back upon their lives and repent their hubris, their words, their deeds and the certainty with which they staked their claims, excoriated their opponents, and implemented their policies.

Matters

Sometimes these recantations are moving Perry B. Newman and heart-wrenching; in other cases they’re too little, too late. The damage is done, the swath of ruin too wide to excuse and ignore. In all cases, though, we’re left to wonder how different things might have been, if only ... . This past week, one of the more celebrated psychiatrists of our time, Dr. Robert L. Spitzer, issued a public apology. Now 80 and suffering from Parkinson’s disease, the man many consider the father of modern psychiatry wrote that he “owed an apology to the gay community” for a study he conducted decades ago that gave rise to so-called “reparative therapy” that could “cure” homosexuality. The study’s methods and conclusions were improper, Spitzer acknowledged, nor were his published findings peer-reviewed. Yet such was Spitzer’s reputation and certainty that his conclusions were nonetheless accepted by many in the treatment community. Forceful, dogmatic and oh-so-sure of himself, Spitzer stared down his critics. Today he can barely hold his head up owing to the Parkinson’s, and he has chosen this time to apologize. Sad to say, however, despite many red flags raised by his peers, before illness and his own sense of mortality overcame him, the study and its conclusions wreaked havoc on the lives of thousands of confused and troubled young people who were “suggested” into reparation therapies that promised a so-called cure. Of course, Spitzer isn’t the first to have had an epiphany as he stared death in the face. The ruthless Republican political operative Lee Atwater, architect of the infamous Willie Horton campaign against Democratic presidential candidate and Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, also experienced pangs of conscience as he lay on his deathbed. In the 1988 presidential campaign Atwater successfully painted Dukakis as soft on crime and simultaneously played the race card by showing grainy footage of African American inmates exiting

was the dominant power in state politics and the scope of its patronage machine impressive (Paul Violette was but one of many Democratic Party leaders rolled into highly compensated public sector jobs). In describing the center as a “conservative lapdog,” Beem, a vocal opponent of the LePage administration and its supporters, evidences his apparent view that it is preferable to suppress information embarrassing to one’s political allies than to expose bad practices and conduct likely to score points for political opponents. I believe

a prison through a revolving gate, while an ominous voice intoned that Dukakis, through a prison furlough program, had allowed at least one murderer (Horton) back on the streets, where he soon killed again. Nor was the Horton incident Atwater’s only scorched-earth success. In an earlier campaign he destroyed a candidate by referring to that candidate’s adolescent electroshock therapy, suggesting that the candidate had had “psychotic treatment” and had been “hooked up to jumper cables.” He was also credited with developing a race-driven Southern strategy to help GOP candidate Ronald Reagan win the presidency. Then, suddenly stricken with a particularly virulent form of brain cancer, Atwater apparently found solace in religion and began apologizing publicly to the many whose careers and lives he had wrecked. He died shortly thereafter, but too late for those whose reputations and careers lay in tatters and for the country whose course he changed. And before Atwater there was Robert McNamara, secretary of defense to Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. McNamara, the articulate and unflappable wunderkind who engineered the United States’ protracted and catastrophic war in Vietnam, took pride in his relentless effort to prevent a Communist takeover of South Vietnam, whatever the cost; 58,000 Americans, more than a million North Vietnamese and nearly 300,000 South Vietnamese soldiers died, with many more wounded in action – not to speak of the civilian casualties. McNamara, later in life, was haunted by the utter futility of the war and his failure to understand that it could not be won. He was haunted, too, by his role in the second World War and in particular the firebombing of Tokyo, which claimed the lives of 100,000 Japanese civilians. In the end, he, too, made public acts of contrition, accepting responsibility and acknowledging his guilt in the needless deaths of so many. His obituary in The New York Times noted that towards the end of his life, McNamara walked the streets of Washington, unkempt and in a kind of daze. We humans are a peculiar species. Uniquely possessed of the concept of morality, we develop complex systems of ethics and then spend our lives subverting and circumventing them. As the nation prepares to mark Memorial Day, this would not be a bad time to remember that policies are for today, but conscience is forever. As the poet and novelist D.H. Lawrence put it, “There is no complete forgetting, even in death.” Perry B. Newman is a South Portland resident and president of Atlantica Group, an international business consulting firm based in Portland, with clients in North America, Israel and Europe.

Beem is misguided in this respect insofar as the cynicism that selectively excuses corrupt and corrupting government practices engaged in by “our side” fails to recognize the destructive anti-government backlash created by exercises of government power favoring some at the expense of others for reasons of political expediency rather than sound public policy. In effect, Beem’s indifference to government accountability serves the interests of those he most despises. Alice E. Knapp Richmond

Vote Hinck in Democratic U.S. Senate primary I am supporting Jon Hinck, Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate. I am impressed with his sincerity, knowledge of issues important to me, and his eagerness to make a difference in Washington. Jon understands that striving toward lower cost energy and lowering our dependence on fossil fuels not only provides jobs today, but strengthens our economy and contributes to job growth in the future. Jon supports providing a well-educated workforce that encourages new and existing businesses to invest in Maine as we compete in the global marketplace. Jon believes that working together will solve problems that must be faced in the near future. If elected, Jon will work hard on our behalf. If you agree that these are important issues and want to see a senator from Maine make a difference in Washington, I urge you to join me and support Jon Hinck in the upcoming Democratic primary.

Early shedders? The reason is clear What's with the odd reluctance on the part of most of those interviewed by Mario Moretto to just state out loud the almost certain cause of the early appearance of softshell lobsters? As mentioned in the piece, one of the primary reasons for early appearance of soft-shell lobster is warmer-thannormal ocean water temperatures. The water temperatures in Casco Bay have been running a very dramatic four to seven degrees above normal for months, the second-warmest meteorological winter for Portland in recorded history. The warmest March. Second-warmest April. The explanation is right in front of our very eyes. We all know what it is, because we're all living through it. So why are most of the lobster experts so reluctant to just say it? Steve McKelvey Scarborough

U.S. needs stronger energy policy “Blah, blah, blah.” Is this the best President Obama can do for an energy policy? Our "forward-thinking" president continues to slam on the brakes to economic growth when he calls for ending subsidies to the oil industry. Yes, Mr. President, let’s tax the industry pumping $86 million from oil and gas every day – far more than from any other business. And especially in this day of economy of anemic job growth and record deficits. Is this the promise of hope or the reality of hopelessness? And not paying their “fair share”? The oil and gas industry pays close to dollar to dollar to the coffers in Washington. Look at ExxonMobil: in the five years prior

Baseball is in the cards Last month, Carolyn and I took our grandson Jackson to his first Red Sox game. You might not think a 22-month-old would be a great baseball fan, but Jackson is. He paid pretty close attention to what was going on down on the field for almost two hours before The Universal he lost interest. The fact that the Sox hit five home runs, prompting spontaneous outbursts of cheers, music, dancing, and clapping, helped. The fact that his favorite players, Dustin Pedroia and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, were among the homer hit parade made it even better. I hadn’t been to a game at Fenway Park for quite a few years Edgar Allen Beem and it took a while to get over the initial sticker shock. Fortunately, we were given the four $55 tickets, but it cost $50 to park, $8.50 per beer, another $40 to $50 for Fenway Franks, ice cream, popcorn, and pizza, and $30 for a youth-size Red Sox jersey, not to mention gas and tolls. The jersey is a little big for him, so I’m assuming he’ll get a couple of seasons out of it before he outgrows it. Jackson looks a lot like Pedroia, but catcher Saltalamacchia is his all-time favorite, to the extent that someone who’s not yet 2 can have an all-time anything. Teammates call Saltalamacchia “Salty,” but Jackson calls him “Machy.” Daughter Hannah tells me Jackson carries his Jarrod Saltalamacchia baseball card with him everywhere and thinks every man he sees in a Sox cap is “Machy.” The $8.95 I spent at Don’s Sports Card Center in Portland for a set of 15 2012 Boston Red Sox cards is probably the best investment I’ve made this year. Jackson loves them, I get the credit, and Hannah gets to tell him who they are over and over and over again.

Browsing through the cards at Don’s card shop sure brought back memories. Like just about every kid I knew, I collected Topps baseball cards, four or five cards and a stick of bubble gum for five cents. Between about 1957 and 1961, I managed to amass several shoe boxes full of baseball cards. I’d sort them by team, sometimes by position, create personal AllStar teams, and trade the duplicates with my buddies. There’s something about a baseball card that makes you feel you have a personal investment in the play, more so even than wearing the team cap or the player’s jersey. Those wonderful little cards disappeared with my youth. I believe I only attended one Red Sox game when I was a kid and the players I liked best growing up were the ones I saw play that summer day in 1957 – Ted Williams, Jackie Jensen, Jimmy Piersall, Frank Malzone, Ike Delock, Tommy Brewer, and Sammy White. The Sox always seem to come up with long, lanky catchers and White was my Saltalamacchia. In the long, tall backstop brigade there was also Haywood Sullivan, who went on to become the Red Sox general manager, and eventually Carlton Fisk, whose 12thinning home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series is still my most joyous Red Sox memory, despite the fact that the Sox lost the series. Back when I was collecting cards, you essentially had to buy a pig in a poke. You put down your nickel and you took your chances. You might a get a few bums and duplicates or you might get that Don Buddin card you’d been after. It took forever to collect an entire team. These days, you can purchase entire Major League Baseball card sets. That’s a lot of cards. There were only 16 teams in the major leagues when I was a kid, 400 players in all. Now there are 30 teams with 750 players. I’m thinking about getting Jackson a set of 2012 cards for his birthday in July, but, truth be told, it’s a 1957 set I wish I still had. Full set of 2012 baseball cards, $54.99. Still having your own ’57 set, priceless. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Good Deeds The Freeport Community Improvement Association recently granted the Freeport Community Library $4,000 to renovate its courtyard. Over the past 15 years, the original landscaping for the courtyard has outgrown the space and the fence which was intended to define the new courtyard discouraged its use. The grant from the Freeport Community Improvement Association will allow the library to add plants better suited to the space, move shrubs, relocate the entrance way and remove the existing fence. The 13th Annual Stars of Hope program at The Highlands and Highland Green recently raised $1,035 to the Alzheimer's Association. Residents and others in the community donated at a rate of $10 per

The donation will allow Hospice of Southern Maine to continue to provide quality care for individuals throughout southern Maine. Gelato Fiasco recently donated $3,367 to the Brunswick Teen Center. The donation was a result of the company's annual Scoop-a-Thon and this year's donation was $600 more than last year. On average, one dish or pint was served every 46 seconds for the entire twelve-hour event.

Awards Mid Coast Hospital was recently awarded a silver level award from the Maine Tobacco-Free Hospital Network for its efforts in helping to change the community culture around tobacco-free zones. Signs around the hospital communicate the smoke-free policy. The hospital hopes its efforts will

Regular season winding down

(Ed. Note: For the complete Cape Elizabeth-Falmouth and Scarborough-Yarmouth boys’ lacrosse game stories, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer It’s almost playoff time in the Forecaster Country. While outdoor track is already primed to kick off its postseason (please see story), the tennis regular season is over and baseball, softball and lacrosse will be done by next Wednesday. Here’s a glimpse at what’s happened, where things stand and what’s left on the agenda:

The Western Maine Conference boys doubles tennis tournament was played at Waynflete School Saturday. (From left) Cape Elizabeth’s Luke Gilman and Eli Breed defeated Falmouth’s Tom Wilberg and Sam Holland in the finals.

Tennis The Western Maine Conference held its doubles championships last weekend. Cape Elizabeth’s Luke Gilman and Eli Breed defeated Falmouth’s Tom Wilberg and Sam Holland in the boys’ finals. On the girls’ side, Cape Elizabeth’s Kisa Tabery and Emily Tall reached the semifinals before losing to Falmouth’s Katie Ryan and Marlena Lantos, 2-6, 6-7 (4). Cape Elizabeth’s Sarah Bosworth and Deedee Curran reached the consolation final, but lost to Greely’s Marina Goding and Sarah Gooch, 4-8. Cape Elizabeth’s boys’ team will likely wind up third behind Lincoln Academy and Falmouth, continued next page

Track regular season ends, postseason next By Michael Hoffer The fun is about to being in earnest for local runners, jumpers and throwers. The regular season has come to a close and next up are conference championship meets Saturday and the state meets the following weekend. Cape Elizabeth hosted Falmouth, Greely and Yarmouth last Friday for the Cumberland County Classic. The boys came in third (Falmouth finished first) as Deven Roberts (triple jump, 37 feet, 2.5 inches), Andrew Lavallee (shot put, 40-9.5) and Paul Hamerski (discus, 117-4) all won events. The Capers girls were fourth (Greely was first). The 3,200 relay team did come in first in a time of 12 minutes, 10.20 seconds. South Portland hosted Scarborough and seven other

schools in the Cumberland County Classic. The Red Storm won the girls’ meet and the Red Riots came in sixth. Scarborough got wins from Nicole Kirk in the 100 (12.78 seconds) and 200 (25.97), Emily Tolman in the 400 (58.85) and long jump (16-4.75), Catherine Bailey in the pole vault (10 feet), Haela Booth-Howe in the javelin (102-4) and the 400 (52.46) and 1,600 (4:10.67) relay teams. The boys meet was won by Cheverus. Scarborough came in third and South Portland tied Windham for fifth. The Red Storm got a win from Kevin Manning in the pole vault (11-6). The Red Riots top finishers were Teddy Lefay (third in the 100, 11.97), Darryl Wilkinson in

the 800 (2:04.12) and Ben Michaud in the triple jump (39-9). South Portland’s Nyajock Pan won the 800 (2:20.47).

Cape Elizabeth’s Arden Wing finishes fifth in the girls’ 100 at last weekend’s regular season-ending meet.

Postseason schedule Saturday, Cape Elizabeth goes to Yarmouth for the Western Maine Conference championship meet. Scarborough hosts South Portland and the rest of the Southern Maine Activities Association for the conference meet. Cape Elizabeth will compete in the Class B state meet at Mt. Desert Island Saturday, June 2. Scarborough and South Portland vie for Class A honors that same day at Windham. Thornton Academy in Saco will be the host for this year’s New England championships, Saturday, June 9. sports editor Michael hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@theforecaster.net.

Winding down from previous page meaning a semifinal round showdown with the defending Class B champion Yachtsmen could be in the offing. The Capers took a 9-2 mark into Wednesday’s finale at Fryeburg. In Western A, defending regional champion Scarborough finished 10-2 and will wind up third, meaning the Red Storm will host a quarterfinal round match, likely versus Portland. South Portland entered its finale Wednesday at home against Bonny Eagle at 4-7 and 11th, but will likely fall short of the postseason (only 10 teams qualify). On the girls’ side, reigning Western A champion Scarborough finished the regular season 9-3 and will likely be the No. 4 seed for the playoffs. South Portland went 5-7 and will be the No. 11 seed. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth went 7-5 and was in the No. 6 spot at press time. The postseason begins Tuesday with the preliminary round. The quarterfinals are

May 31 and semifinals June 2. All of those matches will be hosted by the higher seeded teams. The regional finals are June 6 at Bates College in Lewiston. The state finals are June 9 at Colby College in Waterville. The singles tournament resumes Friday with the Round of 48 prelims and Round of 32. Saturday is the Round of 16 and quarterfinals. The semifinals and championship matches will be held Monday at Colby. Local boys’ players Matt Gilman and Satchel McCarthy of Cape Elizabeth and Alex Henny of Scarborough remain in contention.

Scarborough’s baseball team extended its win streak to eight and now sits atop the Western Class A Heal Points standings with a 12-1 record. The Red Storm recent conquests included host Deering (11-0), visiting Gorham (11-1, in five innings) and visiting Westbrook (2-0). Against Deering, Scarborough didn’t muster a hit until the sixth inning, but took advantage of 14 walks

and stole 12 bases (five by Joe Cronin). Ben Wessel earned the win with a three-hitter and also drove in three runs. In the win over Gorham, Wessel doubled, tripled and drove in six and Cronin earned the win with a three-hit, eight-strikeout effort. Against the Blue Blazes, Wessel earned the win, but came out of the game with an apparent injury in the fifth. Brendan Hall had an RBI double and Cronin added an RBI single. The Red Storm went to Windham Thursday, plays at Massabesic Saturday and finishes the regular season at home Tuesday versus Portland. South Portland is 4-9, but remains in playoff contention. The Red Riots lost at Cheverus, 9-4, last Thursday, beat host Noble, 4-1, Saturday, then fell at home against Portland, 6-1, Tuesday. Brendan Horton had a pair of hits and two RBI against the Stags. Horton tripled twice, singled, scored twice and drove in a run versus the Knights. Matt DiBiase threw a two-hitter to earn the win.

South Portland (13th in Western A, where 11 teams qualify) was at Deering Thursday, hosts Marshwood Saturday and finishes at Westbrook Tuesday. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth was 6-7 and 10th in the Heals (where the top 12 qualify) at press time. The Capers lost their last three, 3-1 at Lake Region, 2-1 at home to Wells and 9-8 (in eight innings) at Yarmouth. Will LeBlond had an RBI single against the Warriors.

Winding down from previous page win streak hit 11 with recent mercy rule victories over visiting Deering (14-1, in five innings) and Westbrook (12-0, in five innings) and host Biddeford (18-1, in six innings). Against the Rams, Olivia Indorf threw a two-hitter with five strikeouts, Laurine German hit a grand slam and Michaela Willwerth went deep as well. In the win over the Blue Blazes, Erin Bogdanovich threw a one-hitter, had two hits and two RBI and German and Danica Gleason added two hits and two RBI. Against the Tigers, Gleason went off with five hits, five RBI and four runs scored. Sam DiBiase added three hits and scored three times. The Red Riots (second to Scarborough in the Western A Heals) were home with Portland Wednesday, go to Windham Friday and close the regular season Monday at Gorham. The Red Storm is 14-0 and first after defeating host Kennebunk (12-2), visiting Marshwood (3-1) and host Cheverus (7-3) to extend its two-year win streak to 23. Against the Rams, Erin Giles had a sensational game, homering twice, adding three other hits and driving in six runs. Megan Murrell and Marisa O’Toole also homered. In the win over the Hawks, Scarborough’s closest of the year, Giles and Mo Hannan combined to throw a four-hitter. O’Toole doubled twice, while Alyssa Williamson had an RBI double. Against the Stags, Hannan had four hits and two RBI and Giles

and Williamson combined to earn the win with a six-hitter. The Red Storm hosted Windham Wednesday and closes the regular season at Westbrook Friday. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth is seventh in the Heals with a 10-3 mark after extending its win streak to six with victories over visiting Yarmouth (8-1) and Wells (2-0) and host Yarmouth (9-2). In the first win over the Clippers, Katie Rabasca got the win, while Lexi Cantara and Ashley Tinsman homered. Anna Goldstein threw a one-hitter against the Warriors and Tinsman homered and Shannon Nicholson drove in a run. At Yarmouth, Tinsman had two hits and three RBI. Emma O’Rourke added two hits and two runs, while Ellen Best singled, doubled, scored twice and had an RBI. The Capers were home with Falmouth Wednesday, go to Traip Friday and close at Poland Tuesday.

Boys’ lacrosse – First losses for Capers, Red Storm In a 48-hour span last week, Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough’s boys’ lacrosse teams both lost for the first time this spring. The Capers took a 7-0 mark into last Wednesday’s showdown at Falmouth. They fell behind 9-1 in the second period, but embarked on a furious second half rally which fell just short, 14-12. Alex Bornick and Justin Cary both scored four times. “We didn’t play well at the beginning of the game and they played very well,” said Cape Elizabeth coach Ben Raymond. “I’d say it was more of what they were doing and less of what we were doing poorly.

Southern

We had some good offensive possessions that didn’t lead to goals and we got down a couple goals and we tried to score the fourpoint goal that doesn’t exist. Then, we gave the ball away and gave away some possessions instead of maintaining our offense.” The Capers bounced back Friday with a 12-3 win at Kennebunk, then blanked visiting Fryeburg, 19-0. Cape Elizabeth (second to Falmouth in the Western Class B Heals) goes to NYA Friday and closes at home versus Yarmouth Wednesday. Scarborough’s two-time defending Class A state champion boys’ lacrosse team extended its two-year win streak to 19 last Wednesday with a 9-6 win at Kennebunk (Ryan Pallotta had four goals and John Wheeler added a pair). Friday, however, the run ended with a 7-6 home loss to Yarmouth. The Red Storm fell behind 3-0 quickly, but rallied to tie the game twice in the fourth period, 5-5, and 6-6, but the Clippers got a man-up goal with 44 seconds remaining and held on. Scarborough got three goals from Jon Blaisdell and a superb

defensive effort from Andrew Jones. “Yarmouth did something a little different (at the start),” said Hezlep. “Something we haven’t seen. The top couple teams in Class B play a little bit better as a unit than anybody we really see. They made a simple adjustment and we didn’t handle it well. Credit to our guys. They talked their way through it really quickly and got back on track. We held them without a goal for a long time after the first three. I felt really good about that. “Our goal is never to win every game, but to get better every day, however that happens. The guys responded well after the game. They knew they left it out there. We had one more play we had to make and we almost made it. We’ve had a couple close games, but I feel this is the one we played our best in. It was two really good teams. It was a lot of fun.” Scarborough (9-1 and first in Western A) looked to start a new winning streak Wednesday when it hosted Marshwood.

must simply apply for vendors’ licenses at City Hall, a fee of about $120. Under a previous owner, the mall held a farmers market in 2005, but it closed after one season. Gorris said the farmers market model is one that’s been used successfully at other malls owned by the mall’s parent company, General Growth Properties. “This is a little outside the box for us, but we know the formula is out there and

The mall market joins the existing South Portland Farmers Market, open every Thursday from 3-7 p.m. on Hinckley Drive. While vendors with the Hinckley Drive market must join a Farmers Market Association and pay fees to both that group and the city, vendors at the mall

it works,” he said. “Farmers markets are very successful, and we’re hoping we can catch that.” Although the Planning Board vote was unanimous (with Chairman Rob Schreiber recused because his jazz band has been paid to play at the mall on Black Friday), the meeting was not without drama. City Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis responded to complaints made by Schreiber at the May 8 Planning Board meeting about city councilors lobbying the board about its decision to move the South Portland Farmers Market to Hinckley Drive. Councilors Jerry Jalbert, Al Livingston, De Angelis, and Mayor Patti Smith either addressed the board or submitted comments on May 8 regarding that decision. Schreiber said the communication was “undue pressure” and refused to vote. On Wednesday, De Angelis defended her right to address the Planning Board, admonished the chairman for shirking his “duty to vote.” Schreiber has asked for an opinion form the city’s attorney, Sally Daggett, about the protocol for communication between the Planning Board and City Council. Pending that advice, he told the board Wednesday he would not participate in deliberations and left the meeting shortly before it adjourned.

Last year, the market was held at Thomas Knight Park, with lackluster results. It’s hoped the Mill Creek Park location will attract more customers. On May 17, 10 vendors were on hand to sell produce, meat, cheese, seafood and homemade dog treats. Caitlin Jordan, the South Portland Farmers Market manager, said that while business wasn’t booming, it was acceptable. “It was a decent start,” Jordan said. “Hopefully, it’s just going to get bigger and better throughout the season.” Some vendors, however, were concerned about where customers would find parking. The market takes place on a closed portion of Hinckley Drive; on-street parking is available on nearby Ocean, Cottage and Thomas streets. “They should have considered having it somewhere more convenient for the customers,” Stuart White, of White’s Farm in Monroe, said. But customers didn’t seem to mind. They said they easily found nearby parking. And even if they had to circle the block a few times, most seemed OK with it. “Any really busy farmers market has issues with parking,” Rachael Harriman, of Cape Elizabeth, said. “Look at Deering Oaks or Monument Square (in Portland).” Those markets, she said, have little to no easy parking. “If people want fresh fruits and meat,” she said. “They’ll find a way.” Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net.

from $5 to $8; vegetarian options or chicken also available. There is also more adventurous fare, like “The Beast,” a burger with sauteed onions, bacon, pickles and barbecue sauce served between two grilled cheese sandwiches. For dessert, Barber and Berman offer up s’mores raviolis: chocolate and marshmallow sauces held together in graham cracker raviolis. They’ll also have the same sodas, candies and treats previously available at the Scarborough Beach concession stand. The options don’t end there, the duo said. As summer goes on, they’ll be experimenting with other specials and burger varieties. “This is a full-service, gourmet kitchen,” Berman said. “We can do a lot in here.” If business is successful this summer, the partners say they may let their younger brothers operate Mainely Burgers on the weekends while they’re back at school (Barber has now transferred to Babson College in Wellesley, Mass.). Or maybe they’ll bring the truck down to Boston. For now, though, their sights are set on summer. “We have a lot ahead of us, a lot left to do,” Barber said. “But people are gonna be really surprised when they come check us out.” Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/124503

from page 1 agendas since March. “It’s frustrating, because it feels like sometimes the town isn’t listening as well as it could,” said Lisa Ronco, who lives across the street from the proposed development. “We’re the gateway to Black Point Road and it’s so bottle-necked here.” Wegman Cos. said the development wouldn’t substantially add to the traffic in Oak Hill because residents of its similar facilities tend not to drive. The only traffic created would be by employees, visitors and vendors, they’ve said. The town’s consulting traffic engineer backed up that claim, according to Dan Bacon, the town planner. Bacon also said Wegman Cos. and the town have worked with the DEP to address concerns about the company’s storm-water drainage plan. Bacon said the town respects the residents’ opposi-

tion, but reiterated a common refrain from the Planning Board. “The Planning Board uses the site plan review ordinance standards in issuing approvals or not,” he said. “They understood the general concerns of the public, but at this stage, they felt the project was shaping up to meet those standards.” Joan Jagolinzer, a retiree who lives in the Cedarbrook Condominiums at the foot of the hill beneath the proposed development site, said she’s worried not only about storm water from Wegmans’ property flooding her backyard, but has concerns about the people who will live in the proposed facility facing insurmountable traffic when trying to leave their homes. “There will be 60 units that are just assisted-living,” she said. “Those folks will want to get out and walk. We’re concerned about their safety because there’s a

proposed very short sidewalk at the site, but after that there isn’t much.” Joe McEntee, vice president for senior housing at Wegman Cos., and Andrew Johnson of SMRT engineering in Portland, the company’s lead engineer, did not return calls for comment. City Councilor Carol Rancourt, a Black Point Road resident and opponent of the plan, said it may not be fruitful for the Friends of Oak Hill to bring their concerns to the Town Council. Ultimately, she admitted, the Planning Board may not be receptive to concerns that fall outside the site plan review standards. Still, she said, the residents should continue to voice their concerns with the plan. “What other option do citizens have?” she said. “Certainly their voice is their last right. I think they’re hoping somebody will listen, somebody will think about this, and some modifications can be made to the plan.” Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net.

from page 1 custody order. He also said Anderson was entitled to “qualified immunity,” which protects public officials from lawsuits. Malenko claimed Anderson’s involvement in the dispute with his ex-wife, Washington, D.C., resident Lori Handrahan, denied him parental rights guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. The lawsuit stemmed from an incident Jan. 27 when Handrahan, the girl’s mother, allegedly tried to take her daughter from Malenko’s wife, who was dropping off the child at a Cape Elizabeth day-care

Public Works from page 1 will take to fund construction, just two years after they approved a $41.5 million high school renovation bond. “There’s not a lot that’s considered sexy about a public works garage,” Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis said. “High schools are sexy, but public works garages? Not so much.” The city has long identified replacing the current Public Works complex on O’Neil Street, built in the 1930s, as its top capital improvement priority. The 6-acre site has a dozen or so buildings for Public Works, Parks and

center. Handrahan said a court order granted her visitation rights on the first, third and fourth weekend of every month, according to a police report. The order also gave Malenko, the girl’s custodial parent, decision-making authority over the child’s well-being, which he interpreted to include barring the child from seeing her mother. Anderson called a Cape Elizabeth police officer and said she had consulted with Maine District Court Judge Jeffrey

Transportation. Old technology is housed in even older buildings. Equipment worth hundreds of thousands of dollars is left outside, tempting rust, because there’s not enough garage space. Storage space is made wherever there’s room, and there isn’t much left. Entire buildings are in disrepair and condemned. And the neighborhood surrounding the property is weary of the noise and blight. In 2004, a study was commissioned to analyze the existing facility. It recommended several upgrades and expansions, but in 2005, a $4.8 million referendum to purchase the former Durastone building on Wallace Avenue for a new complex was defeated by voters, 506-472.

Moskowitz, who issued the order, and determined that Handrahan had a right to weekend custody. Anderson allegedly said the girl could go with her mother, but the officer chose to have the state Department of Health and Human Services mediate the matter. A case worker determined that barring a new order from Moskowitz, the girl ought to go with her father. Malenko was without his daughter for about two hours. Singal said in his May 23 decision that Malenko’s rights had not been violated, and that even if they had, Anderson would have had no reason to believe she was violating his rights.

The proposed new facility, designed by Sebago Technics, would take up about 10 acres at the transfer station. It would include the consolidated building, plus covered salt and sand storage (unavailable at O’Neil Street), a greenhouse, wash bay and refueling station. The transfer station would be moved to a different part of the property, and a “swap shop,” where residents could drop off unwanted but still usable goods, would be built. Gailey said in an interview Tuesday that aside from the Police and Fire departments, the workers at O’Neil Street provide the most important services in the city. “These are the guys that day-in and day-out keep the community clean, beautiful and functional,” he said. That work is hampered by the outdated, inefficient facility, he said. Councilors on Monday generally supported the design, but wanted more concrete information about cost and how much will be saved over time. Gailey said Tuesday that the $10 million in the capital improvement budget is a “placeholder,” and that the actual cost of con-

struction would likely be a little higher. Councilors also wondered what would happen at the O’Neil Street complex if the city departments move. “We’re going to be flooded with questions about the cost to mitigate the existing site,” Councilor Tom Blake said. “I don’t know if we’ve touched on that. Is it going to cost us $200,000 or $2 million to destroy that? What is the value of that site, assuming we sell it off for house lots? Can that be applied to the new complex?” Gailey and Sebago Technics will now hash out the numbers with the heads of the Public Works, Parks and Transportation departments. He said he hopes to get back to the council in the next month or so, to start moving toward a November bond referendum. “From here on in, we’re working on cost,” he said Tuesday. “After that, marketing to voters is job No. 1.”

“Maine law specifically authorizes prosecutors to take any lawful action ... to enforce a child custody determination,” he wrote. “The fact that Anderson was following Maine law by intervening in the visitation dispute supports the conclusion that her conduct was objectively reasonable.” Michael Waxman, Malenko’s attorney, said his client would not appeal the decision to the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Conservation from page 5 for Portland North. At the same time, other local land trusts were having informal discussions about how to approach common issues, and the time seemed right to join forces. A working group of representatives from 11 land trusts was formed and after a year of discussion, the collaborative came to life in January. Eight land trusts signed on to become governing members, each paying a $1,000 annual membership that grants them representation on the organization’s board. The new collaborative, Burton said, is “not just the (Portland North Land Trust Collaborative) gotten bigger.” Nor does it represent a merger of the individual land trusts. “We’re not trying to take over,” she said. Rather, the two-employee collaborative is a service center, providing land trusts support in various forms and increasing efficiency by centralizing knowledge that each one might need, but find lacking among its own members. On top of the annual membership fee, the collaborative charges $40 an hour for services. For many of the land trusts, a key service that the collaborative can provide is guidance through the lengthy accreditation process. “There’s no reason for every land trust to be expert in that process,” Stearns said, but Burton and the collaborative have already gone through it before. Land trusts might join the collaborative for help monitoring conservation easements, Stearns said, where the regulations might be more complex than a weekend volunteer would first realize.

www.theforecaster.net Since forming in January, the collaborative has also worked with members on developing member databases, preparing a manual for one trust’s board members, and writing grants. At the end of May, it will organize a training on trail maintenance led by Portland Trails, a collaborative member. “Grant writing is time consuming. It’s involved; you have to know what you’re doing,” said Fred Frodyma, vice president of the Three Rivers Land Trust in York County. “The collaborative has the expertise” to find appropriate funding sources for their organization, he said. “This sort of allows everybody to pool skills and get what they want,” said Brenda Buchanan, a former board member of the Oceanside trust, who was instrumental in forming the collaborative. The collaborative is itself supported this year by grants and donations, but hopes to be self-sufficient, based on services provided, by its fifth year. So far, the collaborative’s pilot year has had mixed success, Burton said. They had anticipated six member organizations in the first year and landed eight, but are slightly behind on a goal to contract 400 service hours, she said. Only three of the eight members have hired them for services beyond membership. Frodyma and Stearns both said that their organizations are still trying to decide how to best utilize their membership. The collaborative will revisit its model at the end of the year, Burton said, and make changes if necessary. “The truth is we really do have to show some success this year,” she said, “and that’s a big piece of what’s really going to bring others on.”

The collaborative’s members know that their work will continue with or without partnerships or a network of peers. Maine’s open land is one of its greatest attractions, for tourists and new residents alike, and preserving that is vital to the health of the state, Stearns said. “Targeted conservation is one piece of keeping Maine the way we remember it,” he said. He called the conservation collaborative “a necessary piece of the puzzle.” “Our experience is that change makes for stronger organizations that will survive.” Andrew Cullen can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or acullen@theforecaster.net.

Unsung Hero from page 6 facility design, installation and repair of all studio and control-room equipment; and, most important, handling franchise fee negotiations, because the station’s funding comes from franchise fees received from cable TV. Some people aren’t aware of the extraordinary diversity of community television offerings. In addition to broadcasting various municipal and school meetings, SPC-TV airs a full range of educational and entertainment fare, some put on by local citizens, some obtained from across the U.S. and around the world. In a recent week, for example, SPC-TV aired more than 100 shows with titles ranging from the local (“Cancer Community Center Open House,” “South Portland Fire

Department History” and “Kites at Bug Light Park”) to the far afield (“Birding in Ecuador,” “Jamaica Inn” and “Planet Earth, Our Response”). Vigue takes special pride in community television’s public access mission. “We provide a forum for free expression for South Portland residents,” he said. “People can send a letter to the editor without the editor. And we enable people who can’t get out to see what’s going on in their community.” Vigue doesn’t restrict his efforts on behalf of community television to SPC-TV. He’s been a prime mover in the establishment of cable television in more than 70 other Maine communities; he’s been a member of the Community Television Association of Maine for more than 20 years, and served as president of its board for five years. In addition to several awards (including the “Tony” award from the Community Television Association for his long service), Vigue has received countless thank-you letters from citizens and organizations for whom SPC-TV has provided a forum. He is also a devoted family man. “Linda, my wife of 44 years, and I are fortunate to have our daughter Lianne, her husband Jessie and our granddaughter, Karlie, share our circa-1800 farm in Standish,” he said. “Lianne works at UNUM, Jessie at Dock & Door Handling Systems and my granddaughter works at being a 5-year-old. My son John lives nearby and is a rigger at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard working on submarines.” Vigue is a citizen’s citizen. The man behind the scenes in South Portland and all around the state, ensuring free and open access to news and information, 24/7.
