City Council unmoved by Knightville parking complaints

Cape Elizabeth's Shore Road pathway construction is on schedule to be completed by the end of September.
Shore Road path construction on track By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — Construction crews have made steady, early progress on the coastal Shore Road pathway since starting work in midJune. "Everything's on schedule," L.P. Murray & Sons president, Leland "Skip" Murray, said. "We're very happy with the progress. We'll see if the weather holds up." Crews are clearing the pathway and laying down the base materials in preparation for asphalt paving, which should be complete by mid-September, Public Works Director Roberty Malley said. The 2.2-mile pathway will extend along Shore Road from Fort Williams Park to the intersection with Ocean House Road (Route 77). Construction has slowed traffic and caused portions of the road to be reduced to one lane. Walkers, runners and bicyclists must share the narrow road with cars, making for a tight squeeze See page 19
By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — Shortly after City Manager James Gailey said no additional City Council action was needed Monday to change parking configurations on Ocean Street in Knightville, three business owners criticized councilors for their decision. Jon Platt, owner of Nonesuch Books in the Mill Creek Plaza, said although a change from angled to parallel parking spaces would not affect his store, he sympathized with business owners north of Legion Square. “Your decision puts two major strikes against the retailers,” Platt said, because fewer spaces will be available directly in front of businesses in a neighborhood already struggling to attract customers. Platt, vice president of South Portland Buy Local, was followed to the lectern by Bellisimo Salon owner Dani Nisbet, who is a director of the organization. Nisbet asked councilors to reconsider the decision eliminating angled parking as sidewalks are widened in a two-block stretch of Ocean Street. She said the area is unique in the city and the changes would harm the area as it rebounds from a loss of traffic following the opening of the Casco Bay Bridge. Mayor Patti Smith thanked the business owners for their input,

First, small step taken for new Maine Turnpike exit By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — Saco Development Director Peter Morelli just celebrated 25 years in municipal government, and has a long-term view of when a new Maine Turnpike exit may be built Index Arts Calendar ................10 Classifieds .....................16 Community Calendar.....10 Meetings ........................12
to serve his city and Scarborough. "I think I'll be retired before anything is done," Morelli said this week. While he may be gone before any construction is completed, Morelli and Scarborough Town
Planner Dan Bacon took the first small step in the long process this month. Their planning departments will split the cost for a $13,500 report by Gray-based Gorrill Palmer Engineers to justify why the Maine
Turnpike Authority should study the need for a new exit somewhere between the Saco River and Exit 42 in Scarborough. Bacon said a new exit might reduce traffic on U.S. Route 1, which parallels the turnpike and
is used by travellers who pass through town. A traffic study conducted during the planning stage for road work in Dunstan Corner estimated 30 percent of Route 1 See page 20

South Portland police get temporary job help By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — Police Chief Edward Googins expects to have more manpower on the streets by Jan. 1 after city councilors agreed to add a civilian staffer at Monday’s meeting. By a 6-0 vote, with Councilor Al Livingston absent, councilors increased the police hourly account by $25,000 to pay for a half-year, full-time position for someone to prepare and process daily police activity reports. Googins told councilors the work is currently done by a detective. He said he cre-
ated a job description for an “administrative information assistant.” The position would be funded from Jan. 1-June 30, 2013. Adding the full-time position on a permanent basis is expected to cost between $45,000 and $50,000 for salary and benefits. The police hourly account budget for the fiscal year was $2.87 million before the increase was approved. Before voting to approve the council order, Councilor Maxine Beecher said it was important to understand the annual cost of the civilian position and that it must become part of annual budget deliberations.
Willard Square celebration returns SOUTH PORTLAND — Music, movies and beach events highlight the second WillardFest, a celebration of the Willard Square and Willard Beach neighborhood, from Thursday, July 12, through Saturday, July 14. It begins with a lecture on neighborhood history by Maine State Historian Earle G. Shettleworth Jr. at 7 p.m., July 12, at Hildreth Auditorium on the Southern Maine Community College campus. On July 13, the outside of the former Bathras Market in Willard Square will become an outdoor screen for a family friendly movie at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 14, includes a fun run and walk from Willard Square to Bug Light Park at 8:30 a.m.; a 9:30 a.m. community paddle, and a sand castle-building contest from 1-4 p.m., both at Willard Beach. Willard Square will be closed to traffic from 3-7 p.m. that day for a block party fea-
turing live music and games, and food from Scratch Baking, Willard Scoops, David’s 388 and 158 Pickett Street Cafe. Organizers encourage visitors to walk or bicycle to the festival because of limited parking.

City Manager James Gailey said he asked to fund the position after a June 25 workshop where Googins and councilors discussed a 2007 report on police staffing. Former Mayor Claude Morgan initiated the study to determine how the city could attract and retain police officers, and concluded three more positions should be added by 2010. Gailey, then assistant city manager, and Googins were part of the study committee. The report noted the police were using the same number of patrol vehicles as were on city streets 30 years before, and the department could have 75 percent of its workforce eligible for retirement by this year.

In 2010, the city received a $170,000 U.S. Department of Justice Community Oriented Police Services grant funding one new position for three years. To receive the grant, the city agreed to pay the salary and benefits for a new officer for a fourth year. In a memo to councilors, Gailey said the position was filled last winter and the new officer has attended the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. Gailey said councilors were not prepared to discuss adding more police officers until the next budget cycle. Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis asked Googins for more data about staffing, crime statistics and department needs sometime this fall, before council budget deliberations begin in earnest.

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/128491
My daughter recently got me hooked on an ultra-witty, quirky gem of a TV series called “Arrested Development.” We’ve been spending No Sugar hours every evening watching back-to-back episodes, and the laughter that’s ensued has done more for my abdominal muscles than all of the sit-ups I’ve done in the past six months. At first I pondered why I hadn’t watched this show back when it first aired in 2003. Then I realized I’d spent most of 2003 weeping, but still, what a waste of good comedy. Thank goodness for the healing power Sandi Amorello of time (and Netflix). The patriarch of the family featured in the show is tossed into jail for white-collar corporate crimes early on, and is frequently shown in his orange prisoner jumpsuit having dysfunctional chats with visitors, and hocking a series of enlightenment videos called “Caged Wisdom.” (Just thinking of this makes me laugh. If you enjoy twisted humor, please watch it. You’ll thank me.) Admittedly, the prison theme has tied in nicely with
what is currently transpiring within the confines of my own home. My three teenage children may as well be in prison, only this is self-imposed confinement. I haven’t sequestered them. At any point on any given day, if they are not at a babysitting or dish-washing job, or at a play rehearsal, I know where they are: in their rooms, under lock and key. I knock on my 16-year-old’s door, awaiting a reply. Of course, with him, it’s usually total silence and I need to put a stethoscope to the door if I want to know whether he’s still breathing. If only we didn’t live in an old house with solid wood doors, parental spying would be much easier. It’s not that I don’t trust what he’s doing in there; I just feel it’s my duty to see if he’s ever coming out for food. His silence lasts until approximately midnight, which is when he begins mixing what I’ll loosely refer to as “music” on his computer. This is also when I consider purchasing earplugs. I once didn’t see him for 24 hours, and felt all warm and fuzzy upon discovering his laundry going through the spin cycle in our washing machine, and knowing he was still alive. My daughter is just as bad, if not worse, having already spent one full year in a college dormitory. It is my belief that she never went to sleep before 4 a.m and frequently didn’t leave her room at all, except for the occasional Pepperoni Hot Pocket. But having your child exhibit such behavior when 120 miles away is much different that hav-
ing her do it while residing down the hallway. For most of the 1990s and into the first decade of the new millennium, I recall frequently feeling like a prisoner of my own home as I went about my motherly duties. Other parents who have ever been at home with kids full-time surely know what it feels like to do the endless diapering, feeding, dressing, bathing, and entertaining; escaping was nearly impossible most days and taking a shower before 5 p.m. felt like a victory of major proportion. And then, there was also the daily struggle of getting them to stay in their rooms and nap. You’d put the child in their crib or bed or what have you, and 3.5 minutes later, they’d be in the kitchen. Or wherever they weren’t supposed to be. You’d escort them back to their room, and – boom – they’d reappear, scaling safety gates and using Toys R Us gift cards to spring themselves from doors that sometimes required locking. I remember once needing to install a sliding lock and fish-eye viewer in Harold’s bedroom door when he was a toddler, because it was the only way to keep him in confinement while still being able to make certain he was not assembling a nuclear missile. Given this previous behavior, it’s now quite amazing (and amusing) to me that I spend a significant amount of energy on a daily basis, trying to get my children out of their bedrooms. I think Santa may be bringing everyone some nice orange jumpsuits next Christmas.

Call on King for U.S. Senate
We reached out to the governor’s office, hoping that maybe he could join us for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new center, and to address the employees. It was not an election year, he wasn’t looking for our vote, and he asked nothing of us. He accepted our invitation because he said he
made it his priority to encourage job creation in our state, and he wanted to share our excitement. I do not believe any other governor in the Verizon footprint has ever attended a Verizon ribbon-cutting ceremony. But then, there is only one Angus King. Aren’t we lucky to have him asking us to let him be our U.S. senator? Paula E. Armstrong, Scarborough

Optimism reigns in woods of Maine Last week, while Syrian President Bashar Assad explicitly declared war on his own people, I attended the opening, flag-raising ceremony for the 20th season of Seeds of Peace. Seeds of Peace is a charitable organization started by author and journalist John Wallach in 1993. Its purpose is to promote lasting peace to regions in conflict. One of the ways it does so is by bringing teenagers from war-torn countries around the world to a camp on a lake in Maine. This season it brought 210 of them, in delegations from Afghanistan, Egypt, India, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, Palestine and the U.S. The delegates are chosen by their home country. The only requirement is that they be proficient in English. For three weeks, these Short teenagers participate in normal summer camp activities like swimming, hiking, and canoeing. They also engage in facilitated dialogues that aspire to expose misconceptions, if not build understanding. The ground rules include that the participants have to listen, have to be respectful of one another, and can only rely upon what they know from their own personal experiences. As I understand it, Halsey Frank the premise is that the way to break the cycle of violence is to get to the new generation before prejudice takes hold. To date, the program has produced about 5,000 Seeds alumni, residing around the world. I arrived just as the flag-raising ceremony was beginning. Camp Director Leslie Lewin welcomed the group. Associate Director Will Smith quoted tennis champion, civil rights activist and AIDS activist Arthur Ashe, who, when asked what an average person could do to solve a problem like Apartheid in South Africa, said, start where you are, use what you have, do what you can. Seeds alumni spoke as representatives for each of the delegations. Several emphasized the rarity of the opportunity and urged their fellow Seeds not to hold back at the risk of regretting, but rather to commit themselves wholeheartedly to the endeavor and make the most of it. The Egyptian rep quoted Steve Jobs about how you have to be crazy to change the world. The Maine rep talked about being ready when opportunity presents itself. Some referred to their traditional adversaries as “the other side.” The Palestinian rep was the most aggrieved. She was resentful of living under Israeli occupation. The Pakistani rep was the most upbeat. She related how she experienced the principles of Seeds of Peace in real life: When Pakistan suffered terrible flooding, it was the Indian friends she made at Seeds of Peace who were most concerned and solicitous. The American rep recalled participating in a team-

How to make strawberry jam My lovely wife Carolyn makes the world’s best strawberry jam. I’m sure she learned it from her mother, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she were born knowing how to make jam. It just seems to come so naturally to The Universal her. I loved watching her make it when she was a college girl in her 20s, and I love helping her make it now that she is a busy professional woman and grandmother. In recent years, with our daughters all grown and out of the house and Carolyn busy at work, the task of picking the strawberries has increasingly fallen to Edgar Allen Beem me, an under-employed writer with time (and berry stains) on his hands. I pick at Maxwell’s in Cape Elizabeth or Gillespie’s in New Gloucester, sometimes both. This year, alerted by Carolyn that “the strawberries are peaking,” I dashed out to Cape and, on my hands and knees, picked a 13-pound flat of dark, ripe berries that cost me $31. That evening, despite a long day at work and several hours of reluctant new car shopping, Carolyn tied on her apron around 8:30 and set about making jam for the year. Having retrieved the jam jars from the basement and purchased the Sure-Jell premium fruit pectin, sugar, and new jar lids earlier in the day, my job was to hull, halve and squash the berries. Carolyn boiled the glass jars to sterilize them, measured out berries, sugar and pectin, and cooked the sweet, fragrant mixture, adding
building exercise where she was in a canoe, in the middle of the lake, with a blindfolded Israeli, a Palestinian, and one paddle. The task was to get to shore. The situation became so antagonistic that they capsized the canoe – and had to laugh at the absurdity of the situation they had created. After each rep spoke, their delegation sang their country’s anthem and raised their county’s flag. The two loudest renditions were of the Palestinian anthem and The Star-Spangled Banner. Former camp Director Tim Wilson recalled how he answered the call and was pressed into service to be the camp’s
a pat of butter to keep the foam down. The part I like best is watching Carolyn ladle and pour the hot jam into jars, carefully topping up each, placing the lids and rings on top, and wiping down the burning, sticky hot jars with a wet paper towel. There is a level of attention and concentration about this step that takes her out of herself, this selfless being earnestly making jam to make me happy. She then sets the jars upside down on a newspaper on the counter so the tops will seal, checking the tops occasionally to see if they are ready. My first taste of the new jam is from Carolyn’s finger, but there is always about half a jar extra that does not get sealed. By the time I help clean up, the extra jam has cooled enough to be spread on a toasted English muffin and then a plain donut to be lovingly consumed as a bedtime snack. Carolyn remembers when her grandmother made jam, baked bread and churned butter on the family farm in Freeport. As recently as the early 1960s, her grandparents grew much of their own food and kept a cow for milk. As 21st century suburbanites, strawberry jam is one of few foods (pesto being another) that we put up for ourselves. It doesn’t just taste good, it feels good. The new jars of jam get stored away on the top shelf of a kitchen cupboard and along about February I start worrying that we’re not going to make, that we are going to run out before the new crop is ready. Somehow, however, Carolyn’s timing is usually perfect. This year I used the last of the 2011 jam just a week before she made the 2012 jam. Now, thanks to my delicious wife, I can once again look forward to the sweet taste of summer in the depths of winter. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

first director. He reminded the campers of the principles of communication, respect and honesty, and exhorted them to shed the trappings of their cultures and societies to be the best human beings they could be. At the end of the ceremony, the group sang the Seeds of Peace song, with its verses about learning from the past, tearing down walls, building bridges and friendships. Afterward, the Seeds headed off to the day’s activities. I left with a sense of optimism about the future.

Veselin Kesich, 91: Well traveled scholar bian village in the Alpine border between Dalmatia, Croatia and Bosnia. His family moved to Banja Luka, Bosnia so he could attend the local European-style high school. He was the author of several books including Formation and Struggles: The Birth of the Church AD 33–200 (2007); The First Day of the New Kesich Creation: The Resurrection and the Christian Faith, (1982); The Gospel Image of Christ: The Church and
SCARBOROUGH — Professor Veselin Kesich, 91, an expert on Eastern Orthodox theology, early Christianity and Serbian Church history, died July 3 at his home. Kesich was a professor of New Testament studies at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in New York from 1953 to 1991. He was also a member of the faculty at Sarah Lawrence College, in Bronxville N.Y. from 1966 to 1986, where he taught comparative religion, with a focus on Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam. Kesich was born on March 12, 1921, in Bosansko Grahovo, Yugoslavia, a Ser-

New York University. On his retirement, he was made Professor Emeritus at St. Vladimir’s and Sarah Lawrence College. He and his wife enjoyed a long active retirement that included trips to Alaska, Croatia, Serbia and Russia. They began hosting their children and grandchildren for summer vacations in Maine in 1994, and moved to the state permanently in 2002. The summer visits became the highlight of his year, especially after the death of his wife. Professor Kesich’s life was enriched by his relationships with generations of students. This continued into his time at the Piper Shores retirement community in Scarborough, where he enjoyed mutual affection with the people who cared for him and became his friends. He is survived by his daughter, Carol Blecker and her husband, Michael, and their children Alice and Charlie, of San Francisco, Calif.; his son, Greg Kesich and his wife, Gail, and their daughters Lydia-Rose and Zora, of Portland; his sister, Mirka Dragicevic of Belgrade, Serbia; and his brother, Dragolube Kesic of Las Vegas, Nev. There was a Trisagion service at Hobbs Funeral Home. A funeral was held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Portland. Donations may be made to the Professor Veselin Kesich Scholarship Fund at St. Vladimir’s Seminary, 575 Scarsdale Road, Yonkers, New York 10707.
Modern Criticism (1972 revised 1991) and Treasures of the Holy Land, (1985), which he coauthored with his beloved wife and intellectual partner, Lydia Weston Kesich. His studies were interrupted in 1941 by the start of World War II and the German occupation of Yugoslavia. Kesich narrowly escaped from Bosnia to spend the rest of the war years in the Yugoslav capital, Belgrade. In the final days of the war he escaped again fleeing on foot to Italy, where he was interned with other Serbs in a displaced persons camp. In 1946, Kesich was part of a group of Serbian students interested in theology accepted to Dorchester College near Oxford, England, with the sponsorship of the Anglican Church. In 1949, he and four other Serbian students were selected to study in the United States with scholarships from the Episcopal Church. He completed university and graduate degrees at St. Vladimir’s Seminary and Columbia University and a joint doctoral degree from Columbia and Union Theological Seminary. It was during this time that he met fellow Columbia graduate student Lydia Weston. They married in 1957. The marriage lasted until Lydia’s death in 2006. Beside his work at the seminary and Sarah Lawrence, he also taught in the Slavic languages department of the University of California at Berkeley and was an adjunct professor of Serbo-Croation literature at

Out & About
Musicals that morphed from movies By Scott Andrews The majority of new Broadway musicals in recent years have been stage adaptations of successful movies. That’s the case with the two most recent musicals to open in southern Maine. Omigod, America’s archetypal Valley Girl, Elle Woods, is like totally morphing from fashion butterfly to legal eagle. That’s the story of “Legally Blonde,” currently running at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick. It’s Christmas and it’s snowing. At least that’s what’s happening in Arundel Barn Playhouse, which is running “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas.” There’s hardly a day when something isn’t happening at the Bowdoin International Music Festival. This year’s overarching theme is Johann Sebastian Bach, and his music is featured on the next two major concerts.
‘Legally Blonde’ An air-headed blonde morphs into a brilliant lawyer. Plus she’s in love with the wrong guy. Add a laughable love story. Plus two laughable dogs. Those are the key elements of “Legally Blonde,” a wonderfully funny and entertaining show that is running at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick. This 2007 Broadway hit has a score by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin with a book by Heather Hach. It is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and also

Elle Woods, her dog Bruiser and lawyer Emmet Forrest are three of the central characters in “Legally Blonde: The Musical,” which runs through July 14 at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick. The actors are Alex Ellis, left, Chico and Chuck Ragsdale.
on the 2001 MGM film that starred Reese Witherspoon. The principal character is Elle Woods, a divinely blonde, sensationally curvaceous girl with a flair for making loud style statements in screaming baby pink. She is introduced as a college senior majoring in fashion marketing at the University of Southern California, where she’s also the president of the Delta Nu sorority. Elle’s in love with a stuck-up beau who is headed to Harvard Law School to begin a career in politics. On a date, Elle expects a marriage proposal. Instead she gets dumped, as her guy tells her that he needs someone who is more “serious.”
Don’t need it anymore?
Resolving to prove her worthiness to be his wife, Elle follows him to Harvard Law, where she quickly gets put down by the snobbish students and egotistical professors at that august institution of legal learning. The only friend she makes is a lovelorn hairdresser. But tables turn when Elle assists her criminal law professor in a sensational murder trial, helping to defend a TV exercise maven who has been falsely accused of shooting her husband. The prosecution has an airtight case until Elle unravels it through insightful research and brilliant cross-examination – and the real murderess is revealed in court. All the while, Elle discovers the true nature of her beloved: He’s a money-grubbing lawyer who sells out his principles. Plus she discovers her own reservoirs of inner strength, while the audience discovers that Elle’s naive, girlish moral code is far superior to what’s practiced at Harvard Law. She even discovers the right guy for her new self. MSMT director Marc Robin has assembled a wonderful, fully professional cast. Tops is Alex Ellis as the perfect Elle, the show’s dominating figure from opening curtain to denouement. Along her journey of self-discovery, this fashionista learns that being true to one’s own values never goes out of style. Charis Leos, a longtime MSMT favorite, draws plenty of laughs in the top character role, a hairdresser who seeks to recover her beloved dog from her exboyfriend. Maine State Music Theatre presents “Legally Blonde: The Musical” through July 14 at Pickard Theater on the Bowdoin College campus in Brunswick. Call 7258769 or visit www.msmt.org.

Never mind the calendar and ignore the thermometer: It’s Christmas and it’s snowing at the Arundel Barn Playhouse. Christmas in summertime? That’s the theme for the next couple of weeks at the historic 1880 Smith Farm barn that was converted into a summer theater 15 years ago. The current offering is “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas,” a happy and tuneful musical that is mostly set in a barn in rural Vermont. The 2008 musical is a reasonably faithful stage adaptation of the celebrated 1954 Paramount Pictures film of the same name that starred Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. The stage script is very faithful to the original screenplay. Only a few details have been changed, mostly to simplify technical requirements. The story opens during World War II as two Army buddies perform a 1944 Christ-
mas Eve show for their fellow troops. The script quickly segues to New York in 1954, where the two wartime pals have become a highly successful nightclub act. In New York the two men meet two sisters who are just breaking into show business. The sisters are booked to perform for the Christmas holidays at an old inn in Vermont. Romance and many complications follow, compounded by the fact that the inn is owned by the aging Army general who once commanded the men. Per usual operating procedure, Artistic Director Adrienne Grant has hired a young professional cast, mostly students or recent graduates of collegiate musical theater programs. The four principals offer pleasant interpretations of their roles, beginning with Anthony Alfaro and Fjaere Harder as the primary romantic pairing. Their romance is slow and strewn with obstacles – mostly of their own making. Nate Richardson and Emily Watson comprise the secondary couple. Their effervescent romance provides the needed comic leavening to the story line. Arundel Barn Playhouse, 53 Old Post Road (just off Route 1) presents “White Christmas” through July 14. Call 9855552 or visit www.arundelbarnplayhouse. com.
Bowdoin International Music Festival
Who was history’s greatest classical composer? Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Sebastian Bach are among the names often promoted as the best of the best. For the over-arching theme of the 2012 Bowdoin International Music Festival, founding artistic director Lewis Kaplan has chosen to highlight the music of Bach, who practiced his craft in Germany between 1700 and 1750. The festival’s next two major concerts include works by Bach. On the July 6 Festival Friday concert, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 will be played with oboist Liang Wang as the featured performer. Also on the program will be another celebrated work, Franz Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden,” performed by the Ying Quartet. On the July 9 Monday Sonatas series, Bach’s Sonata No. 2 for Violin and Harpsichord will be played, with keyboard artist Laura Lutzke as the featured musician. Sonatas by Beethoven and Schubert are also slated. Bowdoin International Music Festival concerts are held at Crooker Auditorium at Brunswick High School (Fridays) and Studzinski Recital Hall on the Bowdoin College campus (most other concerts). Visit www.bowdoinfestival.org for the myriad details.

Jogger Kirk Bradley of Chapel Hill, N.C., visiting Cape Elizabeth friends Bill and Marie Wood, said the path will create a safer environment. "It's very dangerous right now," Bradley said. "It's going to be nice for multi-mobile people to have a path that's a little safer." The more than $800,000, 5-foot-wide asphalt path was approved by the Town
from page 1 in some areas. "It's a challenge for bicyclists and pedestrians right now," Malley said. "Once it's all done, it will be a whole lot safer at the end of the day. It will make it easier for motorists as well."

Recreation director, Rick Towle. Towle served in the same capacity in Talbot County, Md., on the state’s Eastern Shore. Before working in Maryland, Towle was recreation director in Old Orchard Beach. Gailey said Towle is in his second week on the job and takes over from Tim Gato, who was interim director. Gato was filling in after the departure of longtime Director Dana Anderson, who left at the end of last year. In other business: • Councilors were told a program to implement energy-saving technology and equipment through a lease with Siemens Corp. led to $102,000 savings in utility costs. The savings stem from energy improvements recommended by the company in a 2010 audit.
Gailey said the city accepted about 85 percent of the audit recommendations. The company then performed the work, including the installation of a new boiler system to heat the pool at the South Portland Community Center. The boiler system generated $20,000 in savings from budgeted fuel costs in the last fiscal year. By a 6-0 vote, councilors approved shifting the entire $102,000 from various budget lines to pay debt service on the 10-year lease. • Councilors accepted the first reading of changes to the municipal purchasing policy approved last January, which will give city officials more flexibility to lock in fuel and electricity rates. Gailey said the changes would allow Finance Director Greg L’Heureux to get lower rates after consulting with the city manager, but without a council vote. The council would have already approved overall fuel costs as municipal line items in the annual budget. The first reading moves the order to a second reading and council vote on July 16, but without an additional section related to the sale of properties acquired through tax liens. Gailey said those procedures will be discussed in a workshop next month. David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter: @DavidHarry8.
“Your Pet is Our Priority”
417 US Rte.1 Falmouth
Turnpike traffic is comprised of vehicles that do not stop in town. A portion of Route 1 extending from Pine Point Road in Dunstan Corner to Haigis Parkway has been and will be reconstructed to relieve congestion at intersections about two miles apart, but Scarborough officials are also confronted with heavy traffic in the Oak Hill area north of Haigis Parkway on Route 1. Road work in Dunstan Corner will begin in the fall, and Bacon said reducing Route 1 pass-through traffic overall is a goal in town planning. Morelli said the study is needed because of congestion in Saco on the road used to access Interstate 195 and then turnpike Exit 36, and because plans to widen Route 1 between Saco and the Scarborough Marsh appear to have been shelved. Additional traffic on Route 1 in northern Saco is expected when a 300-unit subdivision is finished. Requesting the study is a minimal first step in a protracted process, Maine Turnpike Authority spokesman Dan Morin said. The report must show study data on traffic, alternatives for traffic control, whether a turnpike exit fits into a town comprehensive plan, and why the authority would be

he Woodville Group Inc. Building Design ♦ Construction ♦ Restoration
justified in spending money for a new exit. "It's a big, big study and you have to give them a lot of information,"Morelli said. The authority has 180 days to respond to the request for a study, and if it agrees to look into the need, there must be an agreement with the towns on how the study cost will be shared. Morin said the last interchange added to the turnpike was one built in Sabbatus in 2004. Exit 42 in Scarborough, connecting to Haigis Parkway, was completed about 20 years ago. The Gorrill-Palmer report might outline potential sites for a new exit, Bacon said, and Morelli said re-opening the former Exit 5 in Saco should be considered. That interchange leads to a hotel parking lot, and Morin said it is located so close to Exit 36 that it presents safety challenges for on and off ramps. If the authority agrees a new exit is needed, construction could not begin until environmental studies and permits are granted, so no cost or time estimates are available. Morin said it took about 10 years from the initial discussions for Exits 46 and 47 in Portland to be completed. Those exits access the Portland Jetport, Rand Road and the Westbrook Arterial.
