Plan to spend up to $39M for new school goes to voters By Mario Moretto SCARBOROUGH — Voters will decide in November whether to spend up to $39.1 million on a new Wentworth Intermediate School.
After months of planning, presentations, estimates and schematics, the Wentworth Building Committee got a resolution from the Town Council on Wednesday to send the decision to a Nov. 8
referendum. The council vote was 5-0, with Councilors Jessica Holbrook and Ronald Ahlquist absent. Now it’s up to supporters to
convince voters to approve the plan – no small task, considering a similar, slightly more expensive, proposal was rejected by voters in 2006. Language in the referendum

Knightville farmers market seeks a niche By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — Now that the city has finally realized its farmers market dream after five years of stop-and-go planning, the question that remains is: Will it work? Many towns in greater Portland have farmers markets in summer, winter or both, including the city of Portland. The new South Portland Farmers Market is held Thursday evenings at Thomas Knight Park, and organizers and shoppers said they’ll buy their produce, eggs, meat and baked goods in Knightville, thanks in no small part to what one shopper called “bridge syndrome.” Simply put, most of people interviewed at the opening-day market said that given the choice, they’d rather not have to cross the Casco Bay Bridge to get farm-fresh groceries. “I’m excited to have something this close to home,” said Rachel Guthrie,

By David Treadwell SOUTH PORTLAND — John “Slim” Lee is a rock. For 41 years, he’s been married to the same woman (Cheryl) and he has lived in the same house. And, after seven years with the Portland Boys Club (when it was just for boys), he spent 37 years as unit director of the South Portland Boys and Girls Club, before his retirement on June 1. How did a guy like Lee get to be a

guy like Lee? A solid home foundation no doubt played a role. “I grew up in Munjoy Hill in Portland with my parents and two brothers,” he said. “My parents were very
loving and very hardworking. We were poor, but we didn’t know it.” Lee did not begin his long career with the noble intention of making a difference in the lives of young people. Rather, he needed a job. “I was hired to help out at the Boys Club as a part-time person in the games room, and I enjoyed it immensely,” he said. See page 30

South Portland caterer preps for hungry hordes at Beach to Beacon 10K By Mario Morenati SOUTH PORTLAND — What does it take to feed the crowds behind the scenes of a 10K road race? To Nancy Cerny, chef at CVC Catering Group in South Portland, it’s all about “organization, production and presentation.” And don’t forget the food. Gargantuan amounts of food. When Cerny and her husband Chuck bring their fine-tuned feeding machine to Cape Elizabeth for this year’s TD Bank Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race in August, they’ll bring along 450 pounds of salmon, 475 lobsters, 360 ears of corn, 100 pounds of chicken breast, and more hot dogs and burgers – beefy and vegetarian – than would ever fit on the grill back home. Not to mention the 216 bottles of wine and six kegs of beer. In all, Cerny expects to feed more than 1,000 people over three days. That includes a barbecue for volunteers on Aug. 3, a breakfast for VIPs and the media on the morning of Aug. 6 – race day – and a lobster bake the night after the race for donors, sponsors and elite runners. But when she arrives in Cape Eliza-

CVC Catering Group in South Portland has a full liquor license, allowing them to serve libations at catered events. When the group rolls into Cape Elizabeth to feed volunteers, staff, donors, sponsors and VIPs at the TD Bank Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race in August, they’ll bring along 216 bottles of wine and 6 kegs of beer. Nancy Cerny, right, chef and owner of CVC Catering Group in South Portland, cleans off her giant grill at Cafe 500 on July 18. The grill has two burners, Cerny said, meaning she can cook veggies in the middle and 40 small steaks around the edge.

beth, all she’ll have before her are a tent and some chairs. “It’ll probably take about 30 of us to set up the 43 tables and chairs,” Cerny said. Time will be of the essence, because the caterers will also be setting up an industrial-sized kitchen. That means grills, a dish-washing station, a prepping and plating area, and a bar. There’s so much food to be cooked that some of it had to be outsourced. Cerny said one vendor, Skipper’s Bay, will be on hand at the final dinner with a giant lobster cooker, in which they’ll cook all 475 crustaceans at the same time. Cerny said that part of organizing a well-catered event is improvisation.

CVC doesn’t own any large portable refrigerators, so she’ll rent a 24-foot refrigerated truck to store food during the events. On the other side of the thermometer, Cerny turned toward an old tall-boy — the cart used to transport all those trays

Town Center plan updated, scheduled for review By Mario Moretto CAPE ELIZABETH — The Town Center plan created in 1993, which became a Town Council priority last year, has been updated. The plan will be reviewed by the council in an upcoming workshop to determine if the recommendations that have not been implemented merit further consideration or action. The meeting has not been scheduled, but the council will hold its next workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 6. While more than half of the 37 Town Center recommendations made in 1993 have been implemented, some are continuing or incomplete due to financial restrictions or lack of support.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/95779
With the help of Town Planner Maureen O’Meara, Councilor Jessica Sullivan presented an overview of the Town Center map and updated plan at a council meeting in June. She said the recommendations provide shortand long- term planning goals and should be reviewed. The vision of the plan adopted by the Town Council in 1993 was to create a Town Center that “includes a village feeling, mixed retail uses targeted to residents, a pedestrian inviting environment, a common meeting place, visual vitality, and linkages to the Town’s open space and
school assets.” According to the plan, about a dozen items have not been competed and may be reviewed by the council. The recommendation to place all utility lines underground has not been implemented because of cost, and while a storm-water management study has been competed, there has been no funding to create a stormwater management system. The council may consider the merits of reducing the speed limit on Route 77, may evaluate on-street parking along one side of a portion of Route 77, and may investigate the development of a new local road in the Town Center. Councilors may also address the
City buys $65K portable classroom for Small School By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — Less than two months after the School Board first took up the matter of overcrowding at Small Elementary School, the city has OK’d the purchase a two-classroom portable building for next school year. Just an hour after the board accepted the bid, city councilors approved purchasing a reconditioned portable, which will hold two kindergarten classrooms, from Schiavi Leasing Corp. of Oxford for about $65,000. The bid was one of only three submitted, and the only one that met the School Board’s criteria. Projections indicate Small School will have about 60 incoming kindergarten students next year, pushing the

school’s capacity to the limit. Principal Bonnie Hicks said in May that every classroom is full, including a science lab that had been converted to make more space. “We anticipate an enrollment that will need that classroom for at least three of the next five years,” Superintendent of Schools Suzanne Godin said. “We are cautiously hopeful that the enrollment will turn and that four years from now we could use the portable as one of the potential classrooms for the high school.” The superintendent and School Board had considered redistricting or asking parents to voluntarily send their children to other schools, but those options were rejected as unrealistic, Godin said. They also considered increasing class size, but accomodating the number of children anticipated for Small School would have meant having as many as 30 students in one class, Godin said. That would violate a board guideline that sets a 20-student maximum for each class. “The Small neighborhood is, for

She said there is no need to start exploring options to add to the school’s permanent structure.

WillardFest set to become annual tradition Comment on this story at:
By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — Organizers are already looking forward to next year after what started as a plan for a small get-together to promote neighborhood unity morphed into a street-closing, music-making block party in Willard Square. “We couldn’t have asked for a better day,” said Wynne Wirth, lead organizer for the event. “The response from the community has been great.” Organizers estimated that about 400 people attended the four-hour event on Saturday, July 16, at the intersection of Pillsbury, Preble and Thompson streets. They listened to musicians and storytellers, and ate food and drink provided by Scratch Baking Co., Bathras Market and Willard Scoops. South Portland Fire Department brought out Engine No. 8 and the ladder truck, where children were allowed to sit in the front and play firefighter. Police Department volunteers distributed information and “Cop Collectibles,” trading cards each with pictures and information about one of the city’s officers. There also were children’s activities,
including a parade to kick off the festival. But the centerpiece of the event was Sharon Herrick’s “Wishing Wall,” an art installation where festival-goers were invited to
By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Urban Outfitters, the national retailer described as funky, hipster, kitschy and occasionally insensitive, is poised to move into the former Pavilion on Middle Street.
The company received unanimous approval from the Historic Preservation Board July 6 for proposed signs and ground-floor alterations at 188 Middle St., originally the Canal Bank building. The company, whose trendy fashions

write their hopes and dreams on thin pieces of fabric and pinned them along a corridor of string. Herrick, also one of the festival’s organiz-
ers, said she plans eventually to sew all the wish flags into a panel kite. Wishes ranged from a child’s “I wish the tooth fairy would come,” to the prayer-like “May community spirit prevail!” One outof-towner wrote “I wish to move to Willard.” Herrick said one of the goals for next year is to find more activities to attract the 20-to30-something crowd. “We need people who are in their 20s and 30s on the committee,” Herrick said. “We don’t intend to request permission to serve alcohol or anything, but we need something that’s a draw for that age group.” Now that WillardFest has made the jump from idea to reality, it shouldn’t be hard for Wirth, Herrick and the others to get the community involved. “This was just great,” said Sharon Wilky, a 12-year resident of the Willard neighborhood. “I already have ideas for next year.” Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Urban Outfitters poised to open store in Portland and luxury furnishings cater to younger shoppers and those with disposable income, is leasing nearly 10,000 square feet of space in the building’s 14,000-squarefoot ground level, according to city documents. Historic Preservation Manager Deb Andrews said the company only needs sign and building permits from the city to begin renovations. The company plans to install a new door and replace some of the windows to increase visibility into the store. It’s unclear when the store will open. Neither the Philadelphia-based company nor the building owner could be reached for comment. Portland Downtown District Executive
Director Janis Beitzer said she is excited about Urban Outfitters coming to town. “We’re obviously pleased that another store is coming to downtown and taking up a space that has long been vacant,” she said. The Pavilion nightclub closed in 2007. A national clothing retailer coming to the Old Port seemed almost unthinkable as recently as five years ago, when a downtown property owner proposed putting in a Hooter’s restaurant on Congress Street. That proposal touched off a year-long study and debate about limiting chain restaurants and retailers. In the end, See page 24

Armed robbery suspect arrested after standoff By Mario Moretto
Police chasing leads on South Portland shooting
SOUTH PORTLAND — After a brief standoff Monday, police arrested a man suspected of armed robbery in South Portland. Joshua Nisbet, 34, of Scarborough, turned himself over to police around 7:30 p.m. on July 18 at a friend’s home on Highland Avenue. Nisbet is accused of robbing a Mobil station on Main street on the previous Friday. Police said Nisbet had a knife when he robbed the store, and that he fled after making off with a small amount of cash. Police Department Sgt. Steve Webster said officers had been in touch with Nisbet earlier Monday, and that at the time he indicated he had no intention of turning himself in. Police kept tabs on Nisbet throughout the day, and tracked him to the home on Highland Avenue. When officers arrived at the house around 6 p.m., the homeowners left the scene, Webster said. Nisbet refused to come out. “He was still communicating with us, we were speaking with him on the phone,” Webster said. “We’ve had to deal with him in the past. He has a rather lengthy criminal history.” Eventually, a tactical team was deployed in case officers had to enter the building. But it never came to that; around 7:30 p.m., Nisbet was convinced
By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — Police are investigating a shooting believed to have occurred near Broadway in South Portland. Officers began receiving reports of gunshots around Broadway and Church Street just before 3 a.m. Saturday, July 16, according to the Police Department. Callers said someone had been shot and that the victim was taken from the scene in a private vehicle. Police said shortly thereafter, a shooting victim arrived at Maine Medical Center in Portland with an injury not believed to be lifethreatening. Police Chief Edward Googins said shootings aren’t common in South Portland, and that this case is even more unusual because the

to turn himself in. “He came out on his own and was cooperative once he stepped outside,” Webster said. Police claim Nisbet robbed the gas station at knife point just before 11 p.m. on July 15. Images from the store’s security cameras showed a man matching Nisbet’s description, including a tattoo on the side of his neck.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/95682
victims and witnesses have so far refused to work with police. “People aren’t cooperating with us,” Googins said. “They’re making it difficult to get to the bottom of it. We’re still investigating, but we’re not getting a lot of help.” Googins said officers searched a residence they believed to be connected to the shooting, but said they weren’t releasing any new information. Police urged anyone with information about the shooting to call Detective Sgt. Steve Webster at 799-5511 ext. 7210. Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or email@example.com.

To Avoid Fraud, Thoroughly Research Investment Tips By Gerri Walsh, FINRA Investor Education Foundation There’s nothing wrong with getting investment ideas from friends and acquaintances, but investors shouldn’t just rely on casual tips. Before handing over any money, you need to thoroughly research the investment and the person selling it. It was a lesson that Carolyn and Ray Thompson of Brewer, Maine, learned the hard way. Friends of theirs told them about a new and exciting green energy opportunity involving windmills. They were told the windmills would be small enough to install on rooftops, Ray Thompson, 71, said. Shareholders could purchase exclusive territories and lease windmills to homeowners and businesses. The Thompsons invested $30,000 and were to receive shares in the windmill company, three territories in which they could launch their business and three free windmills of their own. But after traveling to Las Vegas for the initial shareholder meeting in 2008, the Thompsons realized they had been scammed—there were no innovative new windmills. The Thompsons and about 200 other investors were shown a full-size windmill, still being set up in the middle of the Nevada desert. “When I saw that windmill,” said Carolyn Thompson, 65,
“I couldn’t stop the tears from rolling down my cheeks. It was nothing like what they were telling us.” Con men regularly rely on word-of-mouth to bring in new victims. Or they make their pitches to groups, knowing that subtle social pressure brings in more money. Psychologists call it “social consensus,” and it is the foundation of afﬁnity fraud. The thinking goes that if everyone is doing it, it must be okay. But the problem is that no one looks behind the curtain to question the man working the levers. In the Thompsons’ case, that man had a long history of alleged scams and was eventually convicted of fraud in a federal district court in California. “What we really feel bad about,” said Ray Thompson, “is that we talked to other people and got them into it, too. They lost $10,000 each. My losses are my fault, but when I bring other people into it, I’m really sorry about that.” SaveAndInvest.org is a project of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation in collaboration with the Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation Ofﬁce of Securities, AARP Maine and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Always Ask & Check While there’s no guarantee that a registered security will be a safe investment, the chances for fraud increase substantially with unregistered securities that offer little or no public financial information. Follow these steps to protect yourself: • Check with the Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation Office of Securities or U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC.gov) to make sure an investment is registered. • Also ask if the person selling the investment is registered with FINRA, the Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation Office of Securities or the SEC. • If the seller says yes, verify the information by checking his or her background and the background of the firm using the free, online BrokerCheck tool (FINRA.org/BrokerCheck).

Greater Portland communities again break recycling record By Randy Billings PORTLAND — The ecomaine waste management company announced last week that its 43 communities set a record for recycling in the fiscal year ending June 30. The performance continues a trend that started in 2003. Spokeswoman Shelly Dunn said in a press release that ecomaine received more than 35,600 tons of recycling in the year, a 5.6 percent increase over the previous fiscal year. June also set a monthly record with more than 3,200 tons of recycling, 73 tons more than the previous record set in August 2010. Dunn said ecomaine has already seen a record fall in the new fiscal year, too. The single-day recycling record was broken July 5, when the company took in 210 tons of material. Ecomaine Chairman Michael Bobinsky, who is Portland’s director of

public services, attributed the record to the group’s “aggressive educational outreach” and simplified recycling program. Dunn said educational outreach includes open houses, school or group tours of the plant at 64 Blueberry Lane, school presentations and community television public service announcements. Ecomaine also honors top recyclers with its annual awards. Higher recycling rates are not only good for the environment, but for the budgets of the member municipalities, which pay by the ton to dispose of trash. “If, instead, all those recycled tons had been left in with the trash, the bill for waste disposal would have been much higher for municipal taxpayers,” Bobinsky said.
In 2007, ecomaine instituted singlesort recycling, which leaves the task of separating metals from recyclable glass, paper, cardboard and plastic to a machine. “We’ve gone up every year since 2003,” Dunn said. “The biggest jump came after (the introduction of) singlesort.” Pownal was the top recycler in fiscal 2011, at 47 percent of its total waste. The town eclipsed North Yarmouth, which was the top recycler in 2010 at 44 percent. Four municipalities – Cumberland, Falmouth, Hollis and Scarborough – saw their recycling rates drop by a percentage point or less. Dunn said that’s not surprising, since those communities
generally are among the top recyclers in the area. Ecomaine is owned and operated by 21 municipalities, including Portland, South Portland, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, Cumberland, North Yarmouth, Yarmouth, Freeport and Pownal. It provides contract services to 22 other communities and a total population of 335,000 people. Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or email@example.com.

A summer love letter to Maine By Sandi Amorello It’s been six years since I moved here, and I’m ready to confess what I know you’ve been hoping to read: I think I’m in love. With the coast of Maine. Given my post-widowhood dating history, I tend to be a bit cynical about love – but the coast of Maine is different. (Admittedly, there are certain days in late February when I would ditch Maine for, say, a Caribbean island. Sometimes one can be in love, and still not be prepared to make a total commitment.) It began the way most torrid love affairs begin: physical attraction. When we met that first July, there was an undeniable, underlying undercurrent of sexual tension. The first time I arrived at the beach in Cape Elizabeth, I felt a pounding in my chest. Maine was hot – not in a temperature sense, but in a rugged, sensual way. I found the coast of Maine strong, yet sensitive. The frothy

waves pounding relentlessly against the rocky coastline left me breathless. The soft ocean breezes whispered secrets into my ear late at night. It had obviously been seducing other women long before my arrival on the No Sugar scene, but I found that to be a turn-on. I was smitten. The Maine coast in the summertime is just plain sexy. Where else can you go to a business meeting in a skirt and flip-flops? It’s enough to set a woman’s heart on fire. I recall attending a meeting early one September, as I sat there, listening intently to talk of strategies and logo Sandi Amorello design, I noticed I still had sand between my toes from my walk on the beach earlier that morning. Yes, I could have washed off my feet, but why spoil the fun? Even though it was years ago, I still recall the feelings of my first official “summer in Maine.” The salty air brought back happy memories of many wonderful seaside vacations in New Jersey, as a child, and later in Cape Cod, as a young wife and mother. I felt like the luckiest woman alive; I was now living in a self-proclaimed “Vacationland.”

That first summer, I’d think nothing of donning a twopiece swimsuit, throwing on a sarong, and going about my daily routine. I recall stopping at the Mobil station to pump my own gas, and suddenly realizing that, although summer tourists were indeed roaming the aisles of the CVS, I was apparently the only resident walking around town in beach attire. I initially reveled in this fact, but then was a bit disheartened when other mothers in town didn’t catch on to the trend. Looking at them in their capris, traditional business apparel and L.L. Bean hiking shorts, I wanted to shout, “Hey, we’re at the beach! Haven’t you driven down the street? There’s sand! There’s an ocean!” I was so excited to have moved here, I just couldn’t contain my enthusiasm that first season. In addition to a refusal to wear any footwear other than flip-flops, I also developed a lovely new ritual: I’d take my coffee to the beach. Every morning. Even if just for five minutes of quiet contemplation. One day, I invited a new neighborhood friend to join me. As we sat together on a stretch of sand, looking out at a few distant sailboats, she said, “You know, I never do this anymore. I should remember to do this.” Silently, in my head and heart, I vowed then and there that I’d never take this wondrous place for granted. I’ve kept my vow, and still sip my coffee at the beach whenever possible, and also take frequent walks there. I’m always awed, always amazed, and frequently proclaim aloud, “I can’t believe that I live here.” Maybe part of it is because I moved here to heal, and the ocean was my salvation, after having experienced the depths of despair. All I know is, Maine makes me happy. I may complain about the lack of an expansive dating pool, or the fact that there is a disconcerting quantity of flannel in circulation at certain times of the year, but I think I may, indeed, be in love.

Send Monaghan-Derrig to Augusta The special election for state representative on Aug. 16 gives Cape Elizabeth the opportunity to choose Kim Monaghan-Derrig to be our trusted voice in Augusta. With state Sen. Cynthia Dill, Kim will make sure that the best interests of the people of Maine and the values Cape Elizabeth shares for the best in education, the environment and the economy will be supported. We need our representative to protect us from dangerous and destructive proposals pushed by the LePage administration. Recent actions showed us that even moderate Republicans will stand with their extreme party members and pass laws that seek to roll back hard-earned environmental laws, legalize guns in our state parks (including Crescent Beach and Two Lights) and eliminate same-day voter registration. We are also alarmed that on the last day of the legislative session in June, $200,000 of education funding was suddenly taken from Cape Elizabeth schools. Karen & Dieter Hessel Cape Elizabeth
Elect Thompson in Cape Elizabeth I have known Nancy Thompson for the past 25 years, and I have had the pleasure of working with her for the past five years. In that time I have come to know her extremely well. I have seen first hand Nancy’s professionalism, and how she cares about her clients in the insurance business. On the personal side I know that Nancy is one of the most dedicated and active members in her community, and that community stretches from working within the school system and serving on the board of the Cape Elizabeth Education Foundation, to being an active member of the board at the Center for Grieving Children. I cannot think of a better person to represent Cape Elizabeth in the state Legislature. Jeff Putnam Cape Elizabeth
Portland boosters’ plight not surprising I read Halsey Frank’s column “Stop Me ...” with a lot a sadness, but not a lot of surprise. I have four children, two boys and two girls, all grown up. They all participated in high school sports and were in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. If I were you, I would try to have the superintendent of schools removed from office. Maybe he would be happier in a more liberal state. Ed Zink Yarmouth

Access to the wild suburbs People don’t generally appreciate it when folks from away weigh in on local affairs, so I will withhold my thoughts about the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust’s refusal to allow the Shore Road Pathway to go through its Robinson’s Woods preserve. I’m sure they mean well and are only trying to remain faithful to the donor’s wishes with regard to access. I must confess, however, that I have long been of two minds about the preservation of wild The Universal and open spaces. On the one hand, conservation easements and land trusts are great ways to preserve open space and public access. On the other, do we really want the present dictating to the future what it can and cannot do with land? Eventually, it becomes the dead telling the living what to do. But then I’m pretty Edgar Allen Beem sure the late Gov. Percival P. Baxter wouldn’t approve of a lot of things now permitted in his “Forever Wild” gift of Baxter State Park. I was thinking about this when Carolyn and Rudy, our faithful (to her) canine companion, and I went down to Littlejohn Island to explore the Littlejohn Island Preserve, a 23-acre point of land owned by the Royal River Conservation Trust. We’ve lived in Yarmouth for 30 years and we had never been to the preserve, which turned out to something of a less developed Mackworth Island – walking path, scenic views of the bay and islands, swimmable shore turning to bluffs, woods, fields, berries, birdsong – just beautiful. We went down to check out the Littlejohn Preserve because a week before a friend had complained that every time she went there, a woman would appear from down a long driveway to say, “You do know this is a private road, don’t you?” People tend to be protective of their privacy and of their privileges, especially the wealthy. Yarmouth, like Cape Elizabeth, is a fairly upscale little suburb. Cousins Island is its rural shore front, secluded Littlejohn its best-kept secret. And even people who live on the front side of Littlejohn don’t
always know what to make of some of the folks down the end of Pemasong Lane. Think Prouts Neck without the locked gates. “Can’t you read. Can’t you see. This is private property.” These words from the Babes in Toyland song “The Forest of No Return” ran through my head as we walked down the road and into the preserve, but other than a few “Keep Out” and “No Trespassing” signs there was nothing and no one to give offense except an unfortunate development of unnecessarily large homes. When the out-of-state family that had owned the north end of Littlejohn for generations decided to subdivide in 2006, it generously made the 23-acre preserve available to the Royal River Conservation Trust for a song, which the trust got from a Mellon foundation. Parking has been something of an issue for the preserve. The trust website instructs visitors to park at the very end of the road, but in a bow to neighbors, who apparently complained about the public parking on their private road, there is now a more recent sign that asks visitors to park outside the gates of the subdivision and to walk the two tenths of a mile to the preserve and its half-mile of shorefront. Not a problem, but there’s only room for about two cars to park. Parking and access to the shore, of course, are also issues these days at Higgins Beach and Scarborough Beach. We don’t want a proliferation of seaside parking lots, of course, but we do want to make the beautiful places in Maine more accessible. Maybe remote parking lots and shuttle vans, something like the arrangement Chebeague Island has to park on Route 1 and bus people to the ferry dock. Now that we know about Littlejohn Island Preserve, we plan to go there often. These little vestigial wilds are what make cities and suburbs habitable. And reclaiming the Maine landscape for the people of Maine, as the Royal River Conservation Trust has been doing, is as worthwhile an endeavor as there is at the state or local level.

Obituaries Mary Kahl, 59: Former S. Portland city attorney, Art in the Park chairwoman SOUTH PORTLAND — Mary Kahl, 59, died July 9 at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough. On Dec. 3, 1951, she was born in New York City, where her father taught philosophy at Columbia University, her maternal grandfather was chairman of the school's Romance Languages Department and her maternal grandmother taught law. When her parents separated in 1957, her father moved to San Francisco, Calif., and her mother took her and her brother Steve to Los Angeles.
As a child she spent summers in Texas, where her mother’s family was from, including her great-uncle, Coke Stevenson, a former Governor of Texas. She returned to New York to attend college, and graduated from Barnard College and New York Law School. After school she relocated to Texas, where she lived for eight years until moving back east. After three years in Boston, she moved to Maine in 1987. While she felt most at home in the northeast, she would visit family in Texas and California, and

indulge her love of train travel. For two years she was the in-house city attorney for the City of Saco before becoming the in-house city attorney for the City of South Portland from 1991-2008. After leaving that position, she opened a practice that included municipal law, mediation and animal law. She always knew she wanted to practice law and she said that for her, law was about "doing things right and protecting people ... and also protecting animals.” While she was fiercely private, her public passions included progressive and liberal politics, a love of animals and the arts. Over the years worked on voter registration efforts, supported candidates, and demonstrated against the BP oil spill in the Gulf and for the people and animals suffering there. She served as chairwoman of Art in the Park, a one day event in August which required seven months of preparation. When she wasn’t busy with her law practice, Art in the Park, a political event, or an animal rights issue, she enjoyed relaxing in her garden or tackling do-it-yourself projects in her house. Equally interested in the performing arts as much as the visual arts, she loved the occasional trip to New York for several days of theater, delicatessens and shopping.

Cape Elizabeth Capers Spring Athletes of the Year Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year CAM BROWN Senior — Baseball • WMC Class B All-Star, second-team No matter the circumstance, Cam Brown remained poised and confident. That comportment and leadership helped the Cape Elizabeth baseball team enjoy yet another solid campaign in 2011 as Brown hit over .400 (in anything but a hitter-friendly ballpark), played superb shortstop and even served as the team’s closer. For capping his terrific high school career with another memorable campaign, Cam Brown gets The Forecaster’s nod as Cape Elizabeth’s Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year. Brown grew up in Cape Elizabeth and soon became a solid three-sport athlete. He was the goalie on the soccer team in the fall, a point guard in basketball in the winter (the Capers went to the state Brown final back in March) and a shortstop and pitcher on the diamond. This season produced many highlights. Brown had two doubles and three RBIs in a win over Fryeburg, two hits in a win versus Gray-New Gloucester, earned a victory in relief against rival Greely, had three hits and a run scored against Falmouth, doubled, singled, scored a run and drove in four in a victory over then-undefeated Yarmouth, crushed a three-run homer at York, had a pair of hits versus Freeport, singled, tripled and drove in a run against Lake Region, scored a run and threw out the potential tying run at home for the final out in a home victory over York and doubled, singled, scored a run, drove in another and if that wasn’t enough, earned the save, in a win over Greely in the finale. Cape Elizabeth’s hopes of returning to the state final were dashed by Falmouth in the quarterfinals, but Brown ended up hitting .414 for the season with 24 hits (including seven doubles, a triple and a home run) and 15

RBIs. He scored 22 times. Brown, who also plays tennis recreationally, will attend Holy Cross (his first choice) next year, where he plans to try out for soccer and may study business. Certainly more success awaits him at the next level. Cam Brown, Cape Elizabeth’s Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year, was another in a long line of Capers’ diamond stars and he had a senior season to remember. Coach Chris Hayward’s comment: “Cam is going to be so hard to replace. The ground he covers, the instincts he has, the outcome he produces. He was great to coach for four years. He always listened and worked his hardest to do what was asked of him. He’s what every young player should try to emulate. He’s focused, level headed and very gifted athletically. He put up big numbers playing half his games at a field where the prevailing wind is in from leftfield.” • 2010 winner: Ben Brewster (Lacrosse) • 2009 winner: Andrew Guay (Baseball) • 2008 winner; Zach Belden (Lacrosse) • 2007 winner: Pat Murphy (Baseball) • 2006 winner: Evan Bagley (Lacrosse) • 2005 winner: Brett Brown (Lacrosse) • 2004 winner: Garret Currier (Tennis) • 2003 winner: Alex Weaver (Lacrosse) • 2002 winner: Mike DiFusco (Lacrosse)
Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year ELIN SONESSON Junior — Lacrosse • WMC All-Star, first-team • Academic All-American • Team MVP • Coaches’ Award winner After a series of agonizing
based on seeing all or part of 93 sporting events since mid-April. The following athletes weren’t always the most prolific performers or even necessarily in the spotlight, but I feel that each of them helped elevate their respective teams to greatness.
losses to rival Falmouth, including one in last year’s playoffs, Cape Elizabeth’s girls’ lacrosse team finally beat the Yachtsmen when it counted most June 11, in the semifinals of the Western Class B playoffs. Junior goalie Elin Sonesson was her usual impressive self in that game, making seven clutch saves, but it was revealed afterwards that her performance was actually Sonesson heroic. She was playing with a broken thumb. Add that to her resume of sensational efforts and it’s clear that Cape Elizabeth not only has one of the state’s great goalies, but also a leader who will do anything to see her team victorious. In light of her strong play all season and her ability to still stand tall even when she was far from 100 percent, Elin Sonesson is The Forecaster’s choice for Cape Elizabeth’s Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year. Sonesson grew up in Sweden and came to Cape Elizabeth in the sixth grade. She started playing lacrosse in middle school and didn’t move between the pipes until her sophomore year. She also plays soccer in the fall and skis recreationally in the winter, but lacrosse is where she’s dazzled. Sonesson made seven saves in an overtime win over Marshwood, stopped eight shots versus Wells, seven against Massabesic, 12 versus Waynflete, 15 against York, 10 in a second win over Wells, 10 versus defending Class B champion NYA (in the Capers’ first win over the Panthers in several seasons) and nine in a narrow victory over Greely. Cape Elizabeth wound up a solid 9-3 and won its 10th game at Falmouth in the semifinals as
this time, the Capers came from behind and held on as Sonesson held the Yachtsmen scoreless the final 12:40. Sonesson wasn’t 100 percent (or anywhere close) for that one after hurting her thumb previously in practice, but she played on and found out two days later that the thumb was broken. She had to watch the regional final from the sidelines and even though she cheered on a tremendous effort from her replacement, Abby McInerney, Cape Elizabeth fell one goal shy. Sonesson, who also plays the tuba in the jazz band, did receive plenty of postseason acclaim for her play and figures to have a solid senior season. She hopes to play in college and should have several schools interested. That’s because she’s capable of anything between the pipes. Elin Sonesson, Cape Elizabeth’s Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year, has set the bar for excellence pretty high and consistently lives up to and exceeds expectations. Coach Kurt Chapin’s comment: “Elin was our constant all season. We had so many injuries and in some games she was facing 20 to 25 shots. She came up big when we needed her and played solid all season. It really helps to have a goalie that the team is confident in.” • 2010 winner: Gabe Donahue (Softball) • 2009 winner: Colleen Martin (Softball) • 2008 winner: Trish Thibodeau (Softball) • 2007 winner: Maureen Kertes (Softball) • 2006 winner: Clare Egan (Track) • 2005 winner: Elise MoodyRoberts (Track) • 2004 winner: Dana Riker (Track) • 2003 winner: Leslie Harrison (Track) • 2002 winner: Anna Lombard (Lacrosse)
Scarborough Red Storm Spring Athletes of the Year Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year
BEN WESSEL Junior — Baseball • SMAA York County AllStar, first-team outfield • SMAA York County AllStar, first-team utility • Underclass All-Star In 2011, Ben Wessel had the kind of season every pitcher dreams of. He won games, struck out a lot of batters and didn’t surrender much in leading Scarborough back to the playoffs. Best of all, he threw a no-hitter. If that wasn’t enough, he was also no slouch with the bat and had an allaround campaign worthy of great praise. With that in mind, The Wessel Forecaster is naming Ben Wessel Scarborough’s Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year. Wessel came to Scarborough from Vermont at a young age and started playing baseball in Little League, getting serious about the sport in middle school. He comes by his talent naturally as his father, Troy, played minor league ball with the Montreal Expos and Cleveland Indians organizations. Wessel also plays basketball, but was at his best this spring. Wessel shut down the Kennebunk Rams in his first start and also singled, doubled, scored twice and drove in a pair of runs. He doubled and drove in two runs against Windham and singled, tripled and drove in two in a win over Thornton Academy. That all paled in comparison to his feat on May 3, when Wessel didn’t surrender a single hit in an 11-0, six-inning victory at Sanford. He walked one and also hit a batter, but other than that, he was perfect, fanning seven. “The no-hitter was nice, but I have to give credit to my catcher and defense,” Wessel said. The very next game, against Massabesic, teammate Ben Greenberg threw another nohitter and Wessel helped the cause with a hit and an RBI. continued next page
Red Storm from previous page Other highlights included a four-hit, 14-K shutout win over Noble (a game in which Wessel also had two hits and a run scored), a one-hit shutout versus Marshwood, two hits and two runs scored against defending regional champion Biddeford, a home run versus Bonny Eagle, two hits and three RBIs in a marathon 14-inning win at eventual state champion Cheverus and two hits, a run scored and a superb eight-inning pitching performance in an agonizing 2-1 loss to South Portland in the quarterfinals. For the season, Wessel was 4-1 with a 1.37 earned run average (sixth best in the SMAA), holding the opposition to a .172 average (third in the league). He allowed only 22 hits and seven earned runs in 35.2 innings and struck out 46 hitters (second best in the league). At the plate, he hit .320, with three hits, three triples, a home run and 13 RBIs. Wessel is also an avid fisherman, does community service (helping his mother, a nurse), plays in a wooden bat showcase league in the fall and wants to win a state title (and be on the mound when it ends) his senior year. Wessel has already verbally committed to the University of Rhode Island, where he plans to play baseball and study pharmacy. He had the prescription for success this season. Ben Wessel, Scarborough’s Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year, set the bar high and has a very bright future. Coach Mike Coutts’ comment: “Ben is passionate. He loves to play. He really matured this year and became a very competitive player. He works hard in the offseason to improve his skills. This year, he became a pitcher and not just a thrower. He handled adversity on the mound and stayed focused, executing his pitches.”

Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year NICOLE KIRK Junior — Track • Class A state champion, 100 • Class A state champion, 200 • SMAA All-Star, first-team 100 • SMAA All-Star, first-team 200 Nicole Kirk was so dominant this spring that she made a very difficult sport look easy. Already one of the elite sprinters in the state, Kirk added to her resume with two more state titles. She still has one high school year to go and figures to continue her excellence. Kirk In a school with an abundance of stellar and successful female athletes, she managed to stand tall and as a result, Nicole Kirk is The Forecaster’s choice for Scarborough’s Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year. Kirk came to Scarborough at the age of seven and got involved in the town’s youth track program at an early age. She ran indoor track and played lacrosse in middle school, but expanded to outdoor track and cross country in high school and has stolen many headlines.
Kirk quickly turned into an elite talent. After not scoring indoors as a freshman (she was fourth in the 200 and fifth in the 100 outdoors), she moved up to third in the 55 and fifth in the 200 as a sophomore and won the 200 outdoors (while placing third in the 100). This past winter, Kirk was the state champion in the 200 and runner-up in the 55. This spring, she excelled and was at her best in the biggest meets. At the SMAA championships, Kirk won the 100 by .33 of a second. In the 200, she also placed first, by .45 of a second. At the state meet, she repeated as the 200 champion with a time of 25.49 seconds, a new record. She also won the 100 in 12.72. If that wasn’t enough, she also part of a new record-setting 400 relay team and a champion 1,600 relay squad. At New Englands, Kirk capped her season by coming in fourth in the 200 and ninth in the 100. She and her teammates were 11th in the 400 relay. Kirk works hard for her success, training with the football team in addition to her core workouts. Her goal for her senior season is to break 25 seconds in the 200. She’s interested in staying in New England for college, possibly studying nursing, and will be highly coveted for her track talent. We certainly haven’t heard the last of this standout. Nicole Kirk, Scarborough’s Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year, figures to keep winning titles, rewriting the record books and dazzling on the track. Coach Ron Kelly’s comment: “Nicole is an extremely dedicated athlete. Very self motivated. She ran with the boys this past winter and spring, which pushed her to run faster.

Reid capped his superb high school career this spring by winning a state championship in the 200 and he wasn’t far off from taking Reid the 100 as well. He’s devoted to his craft, always prepared and those attributes paid off with a perfect punctuation mark. He figures to continue continued next page
Is your paint poisonous? If it has lead in it, the answer is yes. Lead is a toxin, and can be found in paint in houses built before 1978. It’s especially harmful to children under 6. It can have serious, permanent effects on a child’s growth and development. 90% of lead poisoning in Greater Portland happens in rental units, and lead dust is the most common way that children get lead in their bodies. It collects on surfaces and toys, making it easy for children to get it in their mouths. Tip! To reduce dust levels, surfaces should be wet-mopped and dusted weekly. Protect your child from poisonous paint. Learn more at www.maine.gov/healthyhomes for more information.

impressive enough, she hit .571, homered twice and drove in 23 runs. For her career, Bogdanovich finished with 41 wins on the hill. She’ll matriculate at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire in the fall and figures to make an immediate impact on the softball program. It’s difficult to convey just how special a season this was for Alexis Bogdanovich, South Portland’s Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year. Even her nonpareil statistics didn’t do her justice. Coach Ralph Aceto’s comment: “Alexis has a great work ethic. She lives for this stuff. She was the rock. Not a boisterous leader, but she got her point across. Her college coach is extremely excited about her. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’ll thrive at the next level.” • 2010 winner: Katlin Norton (Softball) • 2009 winner: Danielle DiBiase (Softball) • 2008 winner: Julie DiMatteo (Softball) • 2007 winner: Christina Aceto (Softball) • 2006 winner: Kristin Kill (Softball) • 2005 winner: Krystal Shannon (Softball) • 2004 winner: Lindsay Coit (Lacrosse) • 2003 winner: Nichole Cousins (Softball) • 2002 winner: Morgan O’Donnell (Softball)

ALEXIS BOGDANOVICH Senior — Softball • Maine Gatorade Player of the Year • Miss Maine Softball • SMAA Pitcher of the Year • SMAA Player of the Year • SMAA All-Star, first-team • SMAA All-Academic team Alexis Bogdanovich helped the South Portland softball team make history, then came back and had one of the most dominant seasons in recent memory. A year after the Red Riots won a Class A state championship for the first time (with her on the mound), Bogdanovich confounded opposing hitters, making most of them look helpless, en route to a sensational campaign Bogdanovich that didn’t end until an upset loss to rival Scarborough in the regional final. As superb as Bogdanovich was on the mound, she was just as impressive at the plate, belting several clutch hits to help her team steamroll most of its foes. For being such a standout pitcher and hitter and for living up to and exceeding the hype in a transcendent season, Alexis Bogdanovich gets The Forecaster’s nod as South Portland’s Spring 2011 Female Athlete of the Year. Bogdanovich benefits from being part of a rich athletic heritage in her family and it didn’t take long for her to carve out her own niche. She excelled in Little League and quickly made her mark with the Red Riots. After blanking Bangor to win the 2010 Class A title, Bogdanovich dazzled from start to finish in 2011. In the opener, she blanked Sanford behind a season-high 17 strikeouts. A two-hitter with 10 strikeouts against Kennebunk followed. She also had two hits in
that game. She fanned 12 in a two-hit win against Westbrook (belting two hits and driving in two runs in the process), drove in three runs versus Windham, blanked Noble on two hits with 12 Ks (and had three hits, including a home run), had three hits, two runs scored, an RBI and earned the win in relief against Marshwood, struck out 14 hitters, had two triples and two RBIs against Gorham, crushed a home run, drove in three runs and earned the win at Thornton Academy, pitched 12 innings and drove in the winning run at Biddeford, beat Scarborough with a seven-hitter (fanning nine) and had an RBI in the process, had three hits versus Cheverus, three hits and four RBIs against Bonny Eagle and held McAuley to two hits and scored the only run in the regular season finale. In the playoffs, Bogdanovich was just as strong. She threw a one-hitter with 10 Ks against Sanford in the quarterfinals, also ripping three hits and driving in two runs. She held McAuley to three hits in a semifinal round mauling, then only surrendered a first inning run and struck out 11 against Scarborough in the regional final, but South Portland’s run ended with an agonizing 1-0 loss. Then, the accolades poured in, capped by Bogdanovich being selected Miss Maine Softball and Maine’s Gatorade Player of the Year. Bogdanovich finished with a 12-1 record in 2011 with a minuscule 0.26 ERA and 139 strikeouts. If that wasn’t
turning heads in college. In light of his dedication and triumph, The Forecaster is naming Adrian Reid as South Portland’s Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year. Reid came to South Portland from Jamaica (where he first started running) just in time to start high school. He said it was easy to adapt and his athleticism must have played a big role. He sprinted for four years in both indoor and outdoor track and also played three years of soccer. On the track, he’s only gotten better. Reid was seventh in the 55 indoors as a junior and moved up to fifth in this past winter. He was also third in the 200. Outdoors, he was sixth in the 200 as a junior and was a member of a runner-up 400 relay team. This season, he really sparkled. Reid won the 100 and 200 at the regular season-ending Cumberland County meet. At the SMAA championships, he again won both events, setting the stage for the state meet. There, Reid was first in the 200 (22.89 seconds) and a close second to Portland standout Imadhi Zagon in the 100 (finishing .03 of a second from the top spot). “Imadhi had a better start in the 100, but I almost caught up,” said Reid. “I had it in the 200. We have a good, friendly rivalry.” Reid also anchored the Red Riots’ firstplace 400 relay team (which set a new school record). At New Englands, he was 18th in the 100 and 21st in the 200. After the season, he was given the John Chapin Award for, “Leadership inside and outside the arena of competition, a fierce competitive spirit, superior preparation and an inner source of pride and strength to overcome all obstacles.” Reid runs and lifts year-round, plays the piano and guitar and was a member of the school’s Key and Interact clubs. He plans to attend Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Fla., where he’ll run track and may try out for basketball (a sport he didn’t play in high school). Reid is interested in pursuing psychology or international business. When he sets a goal, everyone else better watch out. Adrian Reid, South Portland’s Spring 2011 Male Athlete of the Year, leaves everyone in his dust when he’s at his best. Coach David Kahill’s comment: “Adrian has been successful because of his work ethic, dedication to the team’s success, competitiveness, belief in himself, maturity and respect for other athletes. He respected and was motivated by performances by other top sprinters. He was an incredible athlete and leader and will be missed.” • 2010 winner: Adam Burpee (Lacrosse) • 2009 winner: Ben Linscott (Lacrosse) • 2008 winner: Will Furbush (Baseball) • 2007 winner: Eugene Arsenault (Lacrosse) • 2006 winner: Thomas McCoubrey (Track) • 2005 winner: Justin Collett (Baseball) • 2004 winner: Scott Guillerault (Baseball) • 2003 winner: Anthony Dambrie (Track) • 2002 winner: Greg Norton (Baseball)

Coaches of the Year By Michael Hoffer Coach of the year is another very difficult award to bestow. There are so many devoted and excellent candidates. These awards were not necessarily awarded to a man and a woman, but to the top coach of a boys’ team and the top coach of a girls’ team.
Spring 2011 Southern Edition Coach of the Year — Boys’ Team CRAIG MCDONALD SCARBOROUGH TENNIS Sometimes banging at the door repeatedly really does lead to a desired result. For three straight seasons, the Scarborough boys’ tennis reached the regional final but advanced no further. This spring, the Red Storm finally
finished the job. While Scarborough had an abundance of talented and driven players, much of the program’s success has to be attributed to longtime coach Craig McDonald, McDonald who has turned an also-ran into a championship contender and earned his just desserts by leading the Red Storm to the state final this year. He’s due plenty of acclaim for his work, so here’s another accolade. Craig McDonald is The Forecaster’s selection for our Spring 2011 Southern edition Coach of the Year, of a boys’ team. McDonald also won the award in 2007. McDonald grew up in Westbrook, playing football, baseball and running track.

He went to school at St. Joseph’s College and became a serious tennis player and got involved in coaching. He helped Windham High get its football and tennis programs off the ground in 1997, then came to Scarborough in 2001. He’s been a longtime football assistant and has been along for the ride as that program has gone from almost instant champion to downtrodden back to the upper tier. In the spring, he’s created a powerhouse. McDonald only won nine matches his first four seasons, but the program really turned the corner in 2007, winning 12 matches before losing to Windham in the semifinals. The next year, Scarborough got to the regional final for the first time, but lost to Cheverus. Back-to-back regional final losses to nemesis Windham followed, but this year, everything came together. The Red Storm won their first 11 matches, then dropped a 3-2 decision to Kennebunk in the finale to wind up second in Western A. This time, there would be no stopping Scarborough in the playoffs as it sandwiched 3-2 victories over Gorham and Kennebunk around a 5-0 triumph over Deering. The Red Storm’s run ended with a 4-1 setback to perennial champion Lewiston in the state match, but Scarborough had at last made it to the season’s final day. McDonald has created a program that figures to be in the hunt every season and it’s only a matter of time until the Red Storm win it all. That’s because they have a coach that has stuck with it and is now earning his
dividends. Craig McDonald, our Spring 2011 Southern edition boys’ team Coach of the Year, finally got his well-deserved happy ending. • 2010 winner: Ben Raymond (Cape Elizabeth lacrosse) • 2009 winner: Jim Cronin (Scarborough baseball) • 2008 winner: Joe Hezlep (Scarborough lacrosse) • 2007 winner: Craig McDonald (Scarborough tennis) • 2006 winner: Tobey Farrington (Scarborough lacrosse) • 2005 winner: Dave Weatherbie (Cape Elizabeth track) • 2004 winner: Todd Day (Cape Elizabeth baseball) • 2003 winner: Ben Raymond (Cape Elizabeth lacrosse) • 2002 winner: Andy Strout (Cape Elizabeth boys’ tennis)

Coaches of the Year from previous page titles in a row, three since 2006, and the Red Storm now belongs in the same breath as Waynflete, Yarmouth and North Yarmouth Academy as the state’s most triumphant programs. Considering Scarborough was an alsoran when Marcia Wood took over the program in 2005, she deserves a ton of praise for turning this program into a juggernaut. The Forecaster agrees and as a result, Marcia Wood is our choice for Spring 2011 Southern edition Coach of the Year. Wood played lacrosse and field hockey at Sanford High School and played both sports at Plymouth State. She was a junior varsity field hockey coach in Old Orchard Beach for two seasons then came to Scarborough in 2004, where she coached eighth grade. When Jamie Chamberlain departed after the 2004 season, Wood took over the girls’ lacrosse program, her first varsity job. The Red Storm won 11 of 13 games her initial season and by year two, bounced back from a five-game seasonending losing streak and a .500 record
to stun Brunswick to win the inaugural Class A title. After playoff heartbreaks in 2007, 2008 and 2009, Scarborough was perfect in 2010, but graduated some key athletes. As a result, the Red Storm was expected
to come back to the back this spring and indeed, Scarborough lost early on at home to eventual Class B champ Yarmouth, but that was the only hiccup.

Coaches of the Year from previous page A young team quickly came of age, gained confidence and beat rivals Gorham and Kennebunk when it mattered to earn the top seed in the region. Scarborough then survived a semifinal round upset bid from Thornton Academy and ousted Kennebunk in the regional final to set up a state final date with
Brunswick. This time, the Red Storm was expected to win and the team held on and did so, 13-11, giving Wood her 80th victory and more hardware. “We always have high expectations,” said Wood. “I knew it was possible this year, but I didn’t know if all the girls would adjust that quickly.” Wood, a Portland resident, is in her fifth year as an ed tech at Scarborough.

Thomas Knight Park were packed for the market’s grand opening; 12 vendors lined the walkway, hawking everything from produce and rabbit meat to baked goods and crab cakes. There was even a man offering to sharpen patrons’ knives while they shopped. Between giving away free samples of locally sourced crab cakes and salmon patties, Gretchen Bates of Maine Saltwater Creations gave thanks for the organizers’ hard work. “They advertised really well for this market,” she said. Bates and her business partner Lauren Fillinger sell their seafood at farmers markets in Falmouth, Cumberland, Freeport and now South Portland. “And we’re never this busy,” she said. But the large crowd at the first market may not be a great predictor of the market’s future. “You can’t judge it based on one day,” said Caitlin Jordan of Alewives Brook Farm in Cape Elizabeth. Jordan, along with Mayor Rosemarie De Angelis and fellow Cape Elizabeth farmer Penny Jordan of Jordan’s Farm, organized the market. “It’s about whether this community supports this all season,” she said. We need people here week after week for this to be a success.” It seemed that for South Portland Mayor Rosemarie De Angelis, who has been an advocate for establishing the farmers market, the success of the new venture will come down to the city’s residents. “We have the community spirit to make this a success,” De Angelis said after cutting the ribbon to open the market. “Portland is on the map as one of the best in the country, and we’re ready to compete. We have a whole community of people who may not want to cross the bridge.” But organizers aren’t relying on “bridge syndrome” alone to keep the shoppers in South Portland. They hope a growing variety of goods and services

offered and a plan for educational workshops will keep the customers coming back for more every week. Penny Jordan said innovation would be the key. “This is a base for us to work with,” she said. “The following weeks will tell us a lot. There are people who don’t want to cross the bridge, but we need to be different.” To that end, she’s planning on organizing workshops each week, which she hopes can be led by different teachers on subjects like fermenting, pickling and preserving food or other sustainably themed skills. She asked that anyone interested in leading a workshop contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or email@example.com.

Out & About
Music festival, opera are top choices By Scott Andrews One of the summer’s best music festivals takes place this weekend, and Portland’s only resident opera company is busily preparing its big summer production. Both have been high on my personal must-do list for years. Ossipee Valley Music Festival got its start with bluegrass in 1999. Since then its offerings have broadened to include many traditional artists not strictly associated with bluegrass, plus others who draw on traditional music to create their own modern sound. There’s a homecoming mood at PORTopera this summer. The company, which features top-tier professional productions starring internationally acclaimed singers, has turned to a Maine native for the title role in “La Fille du Regiment,” Gaetano Donizetti’s delightfully melodic romantic comedy. Ashley Emerson got started in the PORTopera chorus and has moved on to major roles at the Metropolitan Opera and elsewhere. PORTopera welcomes her back as high-spirited Marie for two performances, July 28 and 30.
Ossipee Valley Music Festival Variation on old-time American musical traditions is the dominant theme of one of Maine’s most intriguing music festivals. The Ossipee Valley Music Festival got its start a dozen years ago as one of Maine’s many bluegrass happenings, but in recent years its lineup of artists has broadened to include performers who have branched off in different directions. The festival – two stages plus numerous parallel side events – runs through July 24 at the Ossipee Valley Fairground in South Hiram, about an hour west of Portland. It is produced by Raetha Stoddard and Bill Johnson, two music fans who also run a nearby apple orchard. I’ve attended the Ossipee Valley festival nearly every year since its inception, and eagerly await its return every July. Diverse and different are two adjectives that thematically and stylistically link most of Ossipee Valley’s band lineup. Saturday’s headliner is a prime example. Peter Rowan is a guitarist-singer-songwriter whose professional career began with Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys, the band that set the standard of the genre for many years. Rowan also did a stint with Old & In the Way, a side project led by Grateful Dead front-man Jerry Garcia. Over the course of his fivedecade career Rowan has garnered five Grammy nominations. In recent years Rowan has been fronting his own bluegrass band, a four-man group that consists of dyed-in-the wool
The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band headlines this weekend’s Ossipee Valley Music Festival.
traditional players with more than 100 years of combined recording and performance experience. The band’s most recent CD is “Legacy,” released last fall. It features both traditional selections and “traditionally informed but fresh original songs.” Guest appearances by Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs and Gillian Welch testify to Rowan’s standing in the old-tome American music community. Stoddard, who does most of Ossipee Valley’s programming, also likes to spotlight female artists. Here are a few of her picks for 2011: • The Parkington Sisters hail from a family of musical traditions. Lydia, Rose, Nora, Sarah and Ariel Parkington were raised in a wildly musical household, but despite their common musical backgrounds the sisters only formed their eponymous group six years ago in Provincetown, Mass. The Parkington Sisters ensemble combines five dynamic voices with five confident instruments. Lydia plays cello, Rose guitar and piano, and Ariel, Sarah and Nora play violin and viola. • Sierra Hull is one of the youngest, a singer-mandolinist who has been performing professionally since the age of 8 when she was featured at an International Bluegrass Music Association up-and-coming artists showcase. She has appeared in numerous IBMA teen showcases in recent years. Now a young adult, Hull recently released “Secrets,” her debut CD. • Red Molly is a trio of young ladies – one of whom is actually named Molly – who first harmonized together at a bluegrass festival in 2004. Liking their sound and feeling comfortable with each other’s styles, they formed Red Molly and have been touring bluegrass festivals

‘La Fille du Regiment’ Over its decade and a half of presenting world-class professional singers in fully staged operas, PORTopera has only
once before had an artist from Maine in the title role. This summer marks the second occasion. Bangor native Ashley Emerson will star in Gaetano Donizetti’s “La Fille du Regiment” (“Daughter of the Regiment”) one of opera’s best-loved showcases for thrillingly melodic music and vocal fireworks. It’s also a homecoming for PORTopera. While a teen, Emerson got hooked on opera in 2003 when she won a part in the chorus the company’s production of “Lucia di Lammermoor.” Since then she’s pursued a career in singing and opera. Steps along her pathway to success have included the University of Southern Maine School of Music, where she studied with voice professor Ellen Chickering, and the Lindemann Young Artist Program of the Metropolitan Opera, which is led by Dona D. Vaughn, PORTopera’s founding stage director and now its artistic director. Emerson is now enjoying a career in professional opera and has landed roles at the Met and top regional companies. “Fille” is a high-spirited romp and an exemplar of the bel canto (Italian for “beautiful singing”) style. The title character is Marie, who was found years before as an orphan on a battlefield and was adopted by a regiment of soldiers. Now a beautiful young woman, Marie falls in love with the bravest and most handsome young warrior, a tenor played by Andrew Bidlack. There are complications. The most problematic is a proposed arranged marriage to a nobleman, the proverbial wrong man. But this is comic opera, and the situation is happily resolved in an exquisitely melodic fashion. “La Fille du Regiment” will be sung in its original French, with English supertitles. A full orchestra and chorus will be led by PORTopera veteran conductor Stephen Lord. There are two 7:30 p.m. performances at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: July 28 and July 30. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Rosenfeld told councilors that the ordinance for regular commercial zones included the 50 percent coverage rule, and that industrial businesses typically present fewer parking and pedestrian safety issues than standard retail or commercial outlets. “No one even knows why this was set at 35 percent to begin with,” Rosenfeld said. • Approved “The Vision: An Economic Development Guide for Scarborough, Maine.” The guide is the result of a three-year

under an additional $1.4 million. Though the committee has recommended combining the two items into one ballot question for a total cost of not more than $39.1 million, the final referendum wording is yet to be written. Those numbers are down from an estimate of $41.3 million for the school and geothermal system just a week ago. Since then, the committee has removed from the plan a proposal for a large playing field, a shed, and a rear parking lot. Those cuts saved the project about $590,000. The price of the geothermal system also dropped since the last meeting, after committee members adjusted for errors in earlier calculations. Committee Chairman Paul Koziel said he expects the cost to keep going down, hence the language in the resolution for the total “not to exceed” the new figure. “We wanted a financially responsible project that would serve the teachers, the students, and the community as a whole,” Koziel said. “I think that’s what we’ve brought before you tonight.” About 775 third- through fifth-grade students attend Wentworth. Supporters say the school must be replaced because of asbestos, overcrowding, poor design and a lack of air conditioning in the warm months. The new Wentworth would stand two stories and contain 40 classrooms. It would feature a large, internal courtyard to maximize natural light to classrooms, and a large gym. The school would be home to operations larger than just Wentworth: The high school basketball and track teams would be expected to use the gym, the kitchen would provide food for all public schools, and space would be reserved for community services. The building would total about 163,000 square feet, for a construction price of about $240 per square foot, if the plan includes the geothermal heating and cooling system. The committee is recommending the council include the geothermal system, arguing that while it costs more initially, its lower operating costs will have it paying for itself within 20 years. “A 50-year building with a less than 20-year payback for a geothermal system is worth it,” said Cliff Greim of Harriman Associates. The council’s approval frees up supporters of the project to start pitching their concept to voters. Kelly Murphy, chairwoman of the building committee’s Public Information Subcommittee, said she has a list of 400 residents willing to volunteer for the campaign. The group already has a website and a Facebook page, and Murphy reiterated the group’s earlier offer to give guided tours of the existing intermediate school, explaining along the way why a new building is needed. “We have a small crew working to get the wheels on an actual campaign now,” Murphy said. That includes organizing neighborhood leaders and spreading the word. Koziel said the group would officially kick off its education campaign at SummerFest on Aug. 19.
joint project undertaken by SEDCO, the local Community Chamber of Commerce, town staff and residents. It lays out plans for Scarborough to achieve 10 “visions” related to economic development. Its goals include marketing Scarborough to potential businesses and residents, making the town a leader in green policies and practice, investing in education, keeping the cost of doing business in the town reasonable, and ensuring a fair, consistent and timely planning and development process.

In other business Wednesday, councilors: • Approved a change to the town’s zoning ordinance that increases the maximum allowable building coverage on any parcel of land in an industrial zone from 35 percent to 50 percent. The move came after one of the town’s biotech companies reportedly told the Scarborough Economic Development Corp. that they wanted to expand, but couldn’t because of the zoning restriction. “We don’t want companies leaving Scarborough because they can’t expand,” said Harvey Rosenfeld, SEDCO president.

said. “To please people, you’ve got to get the food out fast and keep it hot.” Those are the kinds of tricks Cerny has had to learn on her way to becoming an award-winning caterer, despite not owning her own events venue. CVC operates out of a 950-square foot kitchen in the lower level of a office building in Southborough Office Park. The kitchen doubles as Cafe 500, where men in shirts and ties and women in pencil skirts grab a quick bite to eat before their shifts or during their lunch breaks. Inside, it smells like brownies or onions sauteing in olive oil, depending on the time of day. It’s nice, but not exactly big enough to host a wedding or graduation party. Cerny hopes that in the next few years, CVC will move into a space with a kitchen, walk-in coolers and an events room. But until then she’ll continue to cater outdoors and in other people’s homes. She said the group will cook for any size event, from two-person dinners to the 2,500-strong Cabela’s opening party they catered last year. “I love a challenge,” Cerny said.

however, no restrictions were instituted. Several local store owners and managers expressed mixed reactions last week about the introduction of a chain clothing retailer in the Old Port. Some said local stores could benefit from the additional foot traffic that might be generated by a well-known destination like Urban Outfitters. Others, however, were concerned the store could lead to other chains, which could drive up rents and make it harder for independent businesses to hang on. Johanna Cairns grew up in Portland and is working at Tavecchia, 52 Exchange St., for the summer. When she lived in New York City about three years ago, she said residents would often discuss how chain retailers changed the character of Greenwich Village. Cairns said she is concerned that other chain stores would follow Urban Outfitters, causing Portland to look more like Freeport. “I hope that doesn’t happen here,” she said. “That would be awful.” But Tavecchia manager Litty Parker said she believes the uniqueness of her store will allow it to survive the competition. As long as chain stores respect the history of the Old Port and remain in proportion, she said she is not concerned about them coming to the Old Port. Sarah Beliveau, manager of Akari at 195 Middle St., said she is excited about the arrival of Urban Outfitters across the
street. “I love that place,” she said. Beliveau said she is not concerned about the impact on business, since clothing is only part of Akari’s business, which also features a spa and salon. “I think it’s going to be great for business,” she said. Gregg Thurlow, owner of Club 21 at Exchange and Milk streets, agreed. Thurlow said the addition of Urban Outfitters could compel more local retailers to keep later hours and create a more bustling Old Port. “It will bring people down here,” Thurlow said. “People aren’t going to shop at just one store.” Thurlow admitted that the store would be a direct competitor to his business, but said “competition is good.” Chain stores are not unprecedented in the Old Port. National chains already doing business include Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts and Five Guys Burgers. Beitzer said PDD takes a lot of pride in its local businesses. She doesn’t believe the introduction of Urban Outfitters will be a watershed moment that will drown local retailers in high rents. “That certainly doesn’t seem to be the case in Portsmouth (N.H.),” she said, noting the presence of chain and local retailers. “Market rates tend to be market rates.” Ultimately, Beitzer said she believes the store will only add to downtown’s

character and the bottom lines of local businesses. “It will bring some people to downtown who haven’t been here before and then (they) will discover the other wonderful shops we have,” she said. Urban Outfitters is a publicly traded company that operates half a dozen retail brands, including Anthropologie. It has more than 140 stores in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The company has won awards for preservation of historic properties, including its corporate headquarters at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. But it has also been criticized for selling T-shirts and other products that promote stereotypes and messages considered insensitive and demeaning by some religious and ethnic groups.

from page 1
Leeâ€™s effective way of interacting with young people impressed the organization, and he assumed the directorship of the South Portland Boys and Girls Club in 1974.
What had been just a job became a calling. Lee was hooked; he really did want to lead an organization that created a life-changing environment for young people. â€œThe Boys and Girls Club provides a safe haven for kids to have fun under adult supervision,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s a great alternative to being on the streets.â€?
Lee noted that the club serves 125 to 150 kids during the school year and about 160 to 165 kids in the summer. â€œSummer time is the busiest, with par-
Having worked so long at the same organization with the same goal (changing lives), Lee gained wisdom on young people, parenting, and societal trends. â€˘ On â€œbadâ€? kids: â€œThere are no bad kids; there are just bad parents. Too often, parents are looking for a quick fix; what they really need to do is provide tender loving care.â€? â€˘ Advice to parents: â€œBe patient. Be understanding. Be tolerant. Theyâ€™re just kids. Theyâ€™ll make mistakes. You have to be supportive.â€? â€˘ Advice to kids: â€œA lot of kids come from terrible home environments, and they should use that to motivate themselves. I tell them, â€˜Donâ€™t let it get you

down. Donâ€™t feel sorry for yourself. Develop good habits. Work hard.â€™â€? â€˘ On the change in kids over the years: â€œWe have a lot more kids now with special needs. Too often, we put labels on kids and prescribe medication.â€? â€˘ On the change in society: â€œIn todayâ€™s society, everything is instant. We need to slow down and take care of each other.â€? â€˘ On the future of the South Portland Boys and Girls Club: â€œI wanted to be sure that they had the right person to replace me and they do. Jennifer Pierce, the new director, has a great rapport with kids. And the rest of the staff is fantastic.â€? Lee said he has no regrets about his career choice.
Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/95520
canâ€™t believe theyâ€™re paying me for this.â€™â€?
As to his retirement years, Lee said heâ€™ll spend more time with his three grown children (all local) and grandchildren. Heâ€™ll work on his golf game. Itâ€™s also a safe bet that Lee will drop by the South Portland Boys and Girls Club from time to time, just to see how things are going.
Heâ€™ll never forget why he did what he did for so many years.
â€œWe have to protect and support our young people,â€? Lee said. â€œTheyâ€™re our greatest natural resource for the future.â€?
â€œI loved my job. I got to work with kids, and every day was different,â€? he said. â€œIâ€™d go home at night and think â€›I

Stubborn fat around intestines reduced
4 Times Greater at Week 4
Dr. Frank Ryan, famous plastic surgeon to the Hollywood stars, was featured on television and in magazines across the nation on an extensive basis. Before he died in a tragic car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway near his ranch in Malibu, Dr. Ryan fulfilled his lifelong dream of developing a line of products which would substantially improve personal appearance without plastic surgery. This product line, which includes an advanced abdominal fat reducer was previously only available to Dr. Ryan’s clients. It has now been made available to the public.

physical activity. People who were not exercising or dieting lost weight and pot belly as well as those who were exercising and dieting. The study also showed that Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer significantly increased calorie burning so that you lose weight faster or you can eat more food without gaining weight. And, the study found that the all natural Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer pill produced weight loss safely. How does Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer work? It was found in a number of research studies that a substance called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) decreases abdominal body fat in three ways: 1.) CLA decreases abdominal body fat mass by decreasing the amount of abdominal fat that is stored after eating; 2.) CLA increases the rate of fat breakdown in abdominal fat cells; and 3.) CLA increases the rate of abdominal fat metabolism which decreases the total number of fat cells. You can think of CLA as a match that lights the fuse in abdominal fat. This fuse also increases metabolic rate that can result in more fat loss. Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer contains the effective dose of CLA. CLA interferes with an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase (LPL). LPL is an enzyme that helps store fat in the body. 2 So, by inhibiting this fat-storing enzyme LPL, CLA can help reduce the reaccumulation of fat. CLA also helps the body use its existing abdominal fat for energy, thereby increasing fat oxidation and energy expenditure. Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer also contains other super highly advanced all-natural ingredients that help reduce abdominal fat. Studies have shown that Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer ingredients increase the rate of fat metabolism, which reduces both surface and intestinal abdominal fat and helps inhibit future formation of these abdominal fats.3, 4, 5 One of these ingredients is a very high quality and

An advanced line of products produced by famous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan is now available to the public. Previously these products had only been available to Dr. Ryan’s clients which included Oscar winning Hollywood movie stars and celebrities across the nation. These products substantially improve personal appearance without plastic surgery. Dr. Ryan, perhaps the most famous Hollywood plastic surgeon in recent times, was extensively featured on television and in magazines across the nation. Dr. Ryan was also one of the first professional staff members of Endless Youth and Life which provides products and services that make celebrities look and perform many years younger than their age. On August 16, 2010 Dr. Ryan died in a tragic car accident. It was Dr. Ryan’s wishes that Endless Youth and Life would make his advanced non-surgical product line available to the public in the future. Endless Youth and Life is now complying with Dr. Ryan’s wishes. The first product being offered to the public is Dr. Ryan’s most popular non-surgical personal appearance enhancement product, Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer. Abdominal fat is the most stubborn fat to reduce and it is also the most hazardous fat to health. Abdominal fat produces destructive hormones that spread throughout the body. A clinical study has shown that Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer can reduce your pot belly without changing your diet or physical activity. A double blind clinical study was conducted on Dr. Frank Ryan’s Abdominal Fat Reducer. The study was commissioned by Advanced Supplement Research and used a research group which conducts clinical studies for the major drug companies. The test subjects in the study lost significant weight and reduced their pot belly without changing their diet or
