South Portland eyes prohibition on pellet guns, sling shots

Tractor pull

By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The City Council on Monday will consider outlawing pellet guns, sling shots, bows and arrows and other weapons on public lands and roads. The proposed ordinance would also make it illegal for people to use those weapons anywhere in the city – even on private property – except at authorized shooting galleries or in self defense. The proposal, which will have its first reading on Sept. 20, is the result of a Police Department request to have the city attorney review the city’s weapons ordinance to make sure it complies with state law. In addition to what he de-

Ethan and Evan Sadowski of Gorham check out a farm tractor from the driver’s seat Sept. 12 during the third annual Touch a Truck to benefit the Maine Chapter of the March of Dimes, at the The Gateway Shoppes at Scarborough, off Payne Road. The event gave children, and adults, the chance to climb aboard all sorts of heavy equipment and recreational vehicles, from dirt bikes to dump trucks.

scribed as house-keeping changes, Mayor Tom Coward said the discussion has expanded to address police concerns over the use of pellet guns and other similar devices within the city. Police Chief Ed Googins said in 2009 the department responded to 33 calls relating to guns that shoot either metal or plastic pellets. As of July, the department has responded to 11 calls this year, Googins said. “As I told the council, we’re not making this up,” Googins said. “We are responding to these calls.” Councilor Tom Blake, however, believes the city may be

Maine Dept. of Education warns schools about use of ‘dangerous restraints’ By Emily Parkhurst AUGUSTA — The Maine Department of Education is telling schools to prohibit the use of airway-restrictive restraints on students until the department can revise its regulations on restraint and seclusion of students in public and private schools. In a Sept. 10 letter from Edu-

cation Commissioner Angela Faherty to superintendents and other school personnel, the department also said schools must maintain a list of all personnel who have restraint training, in-

cluding the date, type of training and the name and qualifications of the trainer. Faherty’s directive follows a series of reports published this summer in The Forecaster that revealed restraints being used frequently and, in some cases, in violation of existing policies, at schools in southern Maine.

Residents voice opposition to pay-per-bag trash disposal By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — A dozen residents spoke against a proposed pay-per-bag waste disposal system at a public hearing on Monday, Sept. 13. Inconvenience, unfair costs and disguised taxes were mentioned as reasons they oppose the proposal. In creating goals for 2010, the See page 26

“(The newspaper) helped bring that to our attention,” David Stockford, DOE policy director and its team leader for special services, said this week. Faherty’s communication updated a letter sent to all Maine school superintendents in July 2009 that made similar requests. However, as of Sept. 10, no poli-

cy changes to reflect a requested prohibition on airway-restrictive restraints had been made in Portland, South Portland, Brunswick, Falmouth, Cape Elizabeth or Scarborough schools. Stockford said the DOE had an internal working group dis-

South Portland High School Principal Jeanne Crocker leads a tour of volunteers advocating for a $41.5 million bond to renovate the school.

By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — A new political action committee hopes to harness the energy of dozens of parents and residents in an effort to convince voters to approve a $41.5 million bond to rebuild South Portland High School. RenewSPHS on Tuesday evening hosted the first of two advocate-training sessions. The nearly three-hour session began

with a tour of the high school and ended with a presentation about the planned renovations and a question-and-answer period. The tour, which was attended by about 30 people, highlighted what are becoming well-known deficiencies at the school. Principal Jeanne Crocker See page 33

Sale of Western Avenue land could cost South Portland up to $125K By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The City Council voted 6-1 in a special meeting on Monday night to spend up to $125,000 to help a local developer remove underground utilities beneath the recently closed Gorham Road extension. The approval removes the final hurdle to the city’s attempt to sell a 1.4-acre parcel on Western Avenue to Vincent Maietta, who is planning to build a 34,000-square-foot shopping center at

Comment on this story at:

85 Western Ave. Maietta and the city agreed to the sale more than two years ago, but it has been held up by the removal of underground utilities, such as fiber optic lines, which could cost up to $250,000. Maietta offered to pay the city $600,000 for the property, which would be combined with an adjacent, 1.5-acre


lot. But he asked the city to split the cost of moving the utilities. “I think the buyer is being more than fair,” Mayor Tom Coward said. “If he wanted to dig his heels in, he could probably make us pay the whole thing.” Councilor Tom Blake opposed the allocation, which would come from the Fairchild Tax Increment Financing account. Blake on Tuesday said he believes Maietta originally agreed to pay up to $200,000 to remove the utilities. He also criticized the city’s decision to hold a non-televised emergency meeting to consider the issue. While the majority of councilors believed the city was obligated to free the

property of encumbrances, Blake said the only requirement outlined in the agreement with Maietta was for the city to close Gorham Road extension, which it did on Sept. 8. “We basically did him a $100,000 favor,” Blake said. “If (Maietta) really felt we needed to provide clear title ... he would have come after us for the 100 percent.” City Manager Jim Gailey said a special meeting was recommended by city staff to maximizing the remaining 2010 construction season. The sale was scheduled to close on Thursday, Gailey said, and site work has already begun. Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

Scarborough board delays vote on restraint policy changes By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — The School Board delayed its vote on several policy changes after receiving a letter from School Commissioner Angela Faherty on Sept. 10 requesting changes to all Maine schools’ policies on restraint and seclusion of students. “I have decided to postpone the second reading of the two policies regarding the therapeutic restraints until the first Board meeting in October,” Policy Committee Chairwoman Jane Wiseman said. Wiseman said the committee will meet in the superintendent’s conference room on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 7:30 a.m. to discuss the proposed changes. The meeting will be open to the public.

Initial changes to the restraint and seclusion policies did not include prohibitions of airway-restrictive restraints, a request the state Department of Education made in July 2009. The most recent communication from Faherty reinforced that request, citing safety concerns and a lack of conclusive data about the frequency of restraints used in schools. Maine does not collect data on the number of restraints a school performs each year and a Freedom of Access Act request by The Forecaster asking six Maine schools for restraint documents was denied by the schools. Connecticut currently requires all schools to record the use of restraints and seclusion and provide that information to

Agreement reached on Pine Point pier construction in Scarborough By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — A proposed pier at Pine Point will move forward after a deal was reached between the town and the Lobstermen’s Co-op, which owns the property where the pier will be constructed. Despite lengthy and, at times, contentious negotiations, the Town Council unanimously approved a lease and gave Town Manager Tom Hall the go-ahead to sign other related documents during a meeting on Wednesday evening. “There were a few remaining issues, but I’m glad to say we have worked through those issues,” Hall said. The dispute over the pier stemmed from the town’s discovery that the council approved a one-year parking agreement with the co-op in 1991 that gave the business the 25 parking spaces required for a restaurant of that size. Since then, the business and town have maintained a “gentleman’s agreement” that patrons of the restaurant will use the nearby municipal parking lot. The new agreement makes that understanding official, setting aside 25 unmarked spaces in the parking lot for the restaurant and putting it in compliance with the town’s regulations. Despite being in favor of a new pier, members of the co-op expressed concern during the negotiations that the town was

taking advantage of that agreement and forcing the co-op to sign the easement and parking lease. However, the co-op’s concerns were waylaid by including a section in the lease agreement that would require the town and business to go through an independent arbitrator if the town found the co-op in default of its lease. The process would also require a public hearing. Gary Johnson, one of the co-op owners, continued page 33

the state, which reviews the data when renewing each school’s license. The state of Texas has a similar law and reported in 2009 that Texas public schools used restraints 18,000 times during the 2007-2008 school year, amounting to approximately 100 instances per day. A series of stories published this summer by The Forecaster showed that three elementary school children in Scarborough were subjected to nearly 100 restraints in three years and that many other public schools across the state were using what a U.S. Government Accountability report called dangerous restraints. Special Education Director Alison Marchese said Scarborough schools have in the past used prone restraints, where one or two staff members put a child face-down on the floor and hold down

his or her arms and legs, but that a new training program implemented this summer does not include prone restraints as an option. “There are programs that have safe prone holds,” Marchese said. “(Positive Behavior Intervention Support) training is very clear. It explains how not to restrict the diaphragm.” While Scarborough used PBIS training it the past, its new training program, SafetyCare, does not instruct staff in the use of prone restraints. Neither program is currently listed as a recommended training program in the state Education Department’s rules on restraints and seclusion. Other Scarborough school policy changes, including new policies on students with disabilities and student records, were approved during a School Board meeting on Sept. 16.

South Portland forum to focus on new flood map By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — There will be an informational session on Wednesday, Sept. 29, for residents of South Portland, Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough affected by newly proposed federal flood maps. South Portland City Manager Jim Gailey said the forum, which will run from 6-9 p.m. in the South Portland High School Auditorium, will be a chance for residents to ask questions about the flood map changes, which affect many seaside property owners. Earlier this year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency released new flood plain maps. In many communities, including

South Portland and Cape Elizabeth, oceanfront properties are included in the flood plain for the first time. The new designation could require those homeowners to purchase additional insurance. “We’re hoping someone from FEMA will be there,” Gailey said. “It’s not (the city) that’s changing the maps, it’s them.” Gailey said more than 200 property owners could be affected in South Portland. The area impacted most is the Loveitt’s Field neighborhood, he said. “These homes are very high up on a high bluff,” Gailey said. “We just think FEMA’s

design is a little excessive.” FEMA has opened an appeal process for homeowners and municipalities to challenge their new designations. The agency has already granted an appeal for the city of Portland, whose waterfront would have been undevelopable under FEMA’s proposed map. Gailey said South Portland also filed its appeal in the spring, but has not received a ruling from the agency, which has been busy working with Portland. “That’s been the most frustrating part,” he said. Cape Elizabeth Code Enforcement Officer Bruce Smith said that about 55 residents have already contacted the town to inquire about the new maps. Of those, only 15 have fallen in the new flood plain. “There’s really not one (area) affected more than the other,” Smith said. Unlike South Portland and Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough has not hired an independent consultant to contest the new maps and has not filed an appeal on behalf of its residents. Scarborough Assistant Planner Jay Chace

said a consultant was not hired because the new maps do not impact Scarborough as much as they do other communities. Chace said it will be up to individual homeowners to prove their cases. A 90-day appeal period for affected property owners to appeal began on Sept. 2. Municipal officials encouraged all waterfront property owners to attend the Sept. 29 meeting, where large maps displaying individual properties and the proposed flood plain will be on display. While FEMA has adjusted its maps for Portland, Gailey and Smith said some property owners will ultimately be required to buy more expensive insurance because of the change. But even they have something to gain by attending the forum. “The benefit of knowing ahead of time is, if you take out insurance before (next) June, you will be grandfathered and pay a lower rate for the first year,” Smith said.

Trucker indicted in fatal prom-night crash SCARBOROUGH — The 38-yearold truck driver involved in the promnight crash that killed Scarborough High School senior Steven Delano and injured three other passengers was indicted by a Cumberland County grand jury on charges of manslaughter, aggravated assault and reckless conduct with a weapon.

Nathan Allen, of Casco, was driving the empty jet-fuel tanker that struck Delano’s car at the intersection of Holmes and Payne roads on May 8, killing Delano and seriously injuring 19-yearold Kevin Grondin. The boys’ two prom dates, who were in the back seat of the vehicle, received minor injuries. An indictment is a determination that enough evidence exists to prosecute, not a finding of guilt.

Re-elect Eberle to state House As the November election approaches, I would like to thank state Rep. Jane Eberle for her legislative service and urge South Portland and Cape Elizabeth voters to ensure her re-election. Her knowledge of, connection to and genuine fondness for the citizens of our community will be crucial in advocating for our specific needs dur-

ing the next two years. Jane’s legislative initiatives have addressed a wide range of critical issues: human health, the environment, wildlife resources, energy efficiency, business, research and development and K-16 education. She is anxious to continue her work in solving tax imbalance, health-care and insurance issues, and food and energy prices. Jane has been a stalwart supporter of efforts to keep campaign signs off public

September 17, 2010

property, both locally and statewide. She will continue to have yard signs only in yards, where they belong (a practice that I wish all candidates and causes would follow). Sensitive to the current economic times, Jane is a “traditionally funded” candidate for this election cycle. She has chosen to forgo accepting publically financed Clean Election funds, though she remains an avid proponent of the program. She has returned a number of unsolicited special interest contributions to her campaign and will donate any leftover campaign funds to Maine’s LIHEAP (Low Income Heating Assistance Plan) program. Jane has served the citizens of Cape Elizabeth and South Portland well and deserves to be re-elected to a fourth and final term as our state representative. Ralph Cabana South Portland

Send Bliss back to the Senate

When things go wrong, we want to blame all our leaders – make a clean sweep and elect new people. But hold on: huge organizations like state government are highly complex and operate best when the people who work within them have learned, by experience, how to make them do so. Candidates new to the system have to spend considerable time to build up that experience, so valuable effort can be lost while burning issues are at hand. If we already have a candidate who has our best interests at heart, who has already shown considerable capability in representing us and who already knows his way around, shouldn’t we try to keep him? Larry Bliss is that man. In the house, and now in the senate, Larry has gained a wealth of “go-to” resources, reliable working relationships and considerable knowledge about the issues which affect us. Look at his legislative record. He has proposed and often effectively brought about passage of protections for the afflicted and smoother paths for all of us. Larry means it when he says his goals are “putting people first” by “promoting education and jobs” and by “protecting our environment.” If we re-elect him, we will make it possible for him to continue his good work in our behalf.

Scarborough plan fails lobstermen Your report on the Pine Point Pier raises some telling questions: If the co-op and town agreed to a one-year deal in 1991 regarding use of the parking lot, was the ordinance requiring restaurants to “own” (or lease?) 25 spaces in existence then? If it was, obviously the town waived or ignored it. If it wasn’t, the town is now making what had subsequently been passed a new requirement. But the town could have done that any year as the agreement was renewed each year. Whether or not the ordinance was in existence, the town chose to waive or overlook this requirement in the annual review and renewal. Why has this “violation” become a critical matter to the town now, incapable of being worked out? Likewise, the existence of the restaurant on land without owning access to King Street, each year under an agreement with the town to operate the restaurant, also raises the question why this matter now becomes one of critical importance to the town? Obviously the town has fixed on both matters as a way to coerce agreement from the co-op. In some circles this sort of leverage would be called sleazy, and if not illegal, unethical. The town’s “plan” should respect the lobstermen, their co-op and their history, rather than arrogantly saying the town knows best. I think the Town’s handling of this matter is outrageous, and to the lobstermen, insulting and disrespectful. This doesn’t build bridges with an important economic and voting group. John A.

But independent gubernatorial candidate Eliot Cutler is being targeted by a form of opposition research I have never seen before – an anonymous website called “The Secret File on Eliot Cutler,” filled with links to articles and videos that the creators of the site believe shed a negative light on Cutler’s candidacy. “He’s a phony and The Universal a fraud,” the website states. “He’s rewriting and revising his history and profile to fit a carefully created campaign persona, fudging the facts, ignoring the truth and fooling the voters.” “The Secret File on Eliot Cutler” attempts to cast doubt on everything from his professional career to how long he has lived in Edgar Allen Beem Maine. It even features a contest with a $500 prize for anyone who can find a photograph of Cutler wearing a barn jacket (which his online critics see as a Scott Brown-like attempt to make Cutler look folksy) before the gubernatorial campaign. So far, though I assume most of the mainstream Maine media has been made aware of the website, very little of the substance of the site’s charges has surfaced. People in the media have been more focused on trying to figure out who is behind “The Secret File on Eliot Cutler.” “We are a group of researchers, writers and journalists – unaffiliated with any candidate or political party – who are frustrated that Maine’s mainstream media is either unwilling or incapable of investigating the background and business connections of Eliot Cutler,” the website states. When I e-mailed the website asking for an interview, I received a reply from a Michael Blessing, though he signed himself “Publius.” Mr. Blessing agreed to answer a few e-mailed questions, the main one being why remain anonymous? Doesn’t that undermine any credibility the website might


have? “We assumed that people would look up our party registrations or previous connections and dismiss the site as the work of a particular candidate or party, which it is not, thus losing our credibility. We wanted the material to speak for itself. We’re screwed either way.” Blessing (or whatever his real name is) also defended anonymity by evoking the history of anonymous political journalism in this country from Tom Paine’s “Common Sense” to Watergate’s Deep Throat. The difference I see, however, is that most anonymous political writing is not aimed at defeating an individual candidate for office. If public service is the motive, why not a website with background investigations of all five gubernatorial candidates? “We’d be happy to do similar sites on the other candidates,” Blessing replied. “We are nonpartisan and don’t even know who we’re going to vote for (except we know we’re not voting for Mr. Cutler). Our time and resources are limited, however.” Blessing expressed the Cutler File creators’ frustration “that the mainstream media were ignoring the facts and letting him get away with creating a misleading campaign persona.” But, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, isn’t creating a favorable picture of one’s self pretty much standard operating procedure in a political campaign? Election campaigns are always more about spin than facts. Like many in the media, I have my suspicions about who might be behind “The Secret File on Eliot Cutler,” but since I can’t prove it I won’t report rumors and guesses. Eliot Cutler’s campaign manager, Ted O’Meara, says he doesn’t know who created the website, but, naturally, he is not amused. “This is an ugly new chapter in Maine politics,” O’Meara said. “I hope it’s not shades of things to come. If this is the new age of journalism, God help all of us.” Pretty much my sentiments exactly. I’m unlikely to vote for Cutler, but an anonymous website devoted to attacking his credibility offends my sense of fair play. It should offend yours, too.

Sports Roundup Page 16


Little goal leads to huge win for Scarborough girls’ soccer By Tom Minervino GORHAM—Most girls’ soccer teams would be happy to leave Gorham with a tie. This year’s edition of the Scarborough Red Storm is not one of those teams. With a mere 9.7 seconds to go in the second overtime of a scoreless deadlock, Scarborough senior midfielder Sarah Little unleashed a last-ditch blast from 30 yards out on the left side, some 10 yards outside the penalty box, that sailed over the reach of leaping Gorham goalkeeper Sarah Perkins and nestled into the top of the net to lift the Red Storm to a 1-0 win over the Rams in an early-season battle between two Western A favorites Monday night. Little gained possession outside the top of the box in front of two Gorham defenders and dribbled in a few strides before firing in the game’s lone score. “I knew that I had to take a run because there were only a few seconds left, so I saw an opening to take a shot and just ripped it,” she said. Jubilation set in among the Scarborough players, except for Little, who stood motionless and speechless as her teammates mobbed her.

“I was shocked that it went in,” Little said. “I just took a chance and took the shot.” The Red Storm improved to 4-0 with the victory, by far their toughest game yet on the young season. Scarborough, a 7-0 winner over Marshwood on Friday, has now outscored its opponents 20-0 after blanking Massabesic (4-0) and Portland (8-0) in its first two games. “It was a classic Scarborough-Gorham matchup,” said Scarborough coach Mike Farley. “It was tooth-and-nail the whole game. Neither team backed down. There was chance after chance, both ways. It was just a really good early-season game. For this early in the season, it was impressive how both teams played at such a high level. It was a fun game to watch.” The Rams (2-2) had their run of four straight Western Maine crowns stopped last season by Thornton Academy in the regional title game, but figure to be right back in the mix this time around. Gorham has been nearly unbeatable at home in recent years, which may help explain Scarborough’s hesitant start to the contest. “I think we were a little nervous and didn’t really settle the

ball down,” Little said. “Once we knew what we had to lose, we took our time and played smart.” The first half provided few good scoring opportunities for either team as both defenses were strong and play was concentrated in the midfield. Scarborough came out on the offensive in the second half, however. Red Storm forward Haley Carignan had a scoring bid on a hard run in the opening minutes, but Perkins was there to make

the stop. Several minutes later, Scarborough midfielder Meghan Tyson made a nice run down the right side, only to have her low shot tipped wide by the dive of

Perkins. “We were kind of helterskelter, especially at the beginning of the game,” Farley said. continued page 15

Capers get defensive and blank York, 21-0

Jason Veilleux / For The Forecaster

Cape Elizabeth junior Austin Shields goes high to make a tackle of a York ballcarrier Friday night. The Capers improved to 2-0 on the season with their second successive shutout, 21-0.

By Eric Carson CAPE ELIZABETH—It was a throwback-style struggle reminiscent of the brutally physical football games between upstart Cape Elizabeth and traditionrich York in the black-and-blue earlier days of the program, as in Saturday afternoons, offsite in the marsh and mud at Gull Crest Field. Friday night, the new-generation Capers slugged it out on the turf and in the lights at a packed and loud Hannaford Field against those same old York Wildcats to earn a 21-0 victory on the strength of a fast, hard-hitting defense in the flow for the defending Western B champs in the home opener.

Cape Elizabeth’s revamped, explosive defense gets its fuel from speed and pure athleticism on the edges and a pair of top inside linebackers that play tough against the run. The Capers’ electric pass rush forced an interception on the Wildcats first attempt of the game that led to a score and a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter. It didn’t get much better for a York offense that managed just over 30 yards of total offense before the half. Coach Aaron Filieo’s newlook Hurricane defense set up the second touchdown with under a minute left to go in the second quarter when it turned the ball over to the offense with

another short field to navigate at the 33 and watched as they punched it in to take a 14-0 advantage at the break. The statistical limelight will shine on the skill players but once again the story of the Cape Elizabeth defensive front is a very Lavallee one. Version 3.0, junior Andrew Lavallee, moves with more ease and closes with more speed at 6-foot-2, 300 pounds, and could be the most disruptive of the three brothers to play for the Capers on the defensive side of the ball. Lavallee batted down four passes at the line of scrimmage against York, had a couple of sacks and put a few more big continued page 14

Early triumphs keep on coming for local squads By Michael Hoffer Every local varsity team is now underway and the fall sports season has produced plenty of excitement in the early going. Here’s a glimpse.

Football While the defending Western B champion Cape Elizabeth football team stayed perfect and unscored upon last weekend (please see story), our local Class A squads had mixed results. South Portland is 2-0 for the first time since 2001 after outlasting host Westbrook, 34-22. The Red Riots (who held off defending state champion Windham, 13-6, at home in Week 1) were down 6-0 after one quarter and were tied, 14-14, at halftime despite a pair of touchdown passes from senior Tommy Ellis (one to junior Logan Gaddar, the other to senior Stephen Hodge). South Portland went on top, 21-14, on a long Ellis TD run, but the Blue Blazes retook the lead, 22-21, late in the third period. Finally, South Portland went ahead to stay on junior Jacob Stanley’s scoring run. In the fourth, Ellis found senior Billy Darling for

a score through the air and the Red Riots held on for the victory. South Portland has a huge test Friday night at home when it hosts red-hot Cheverus (easy winners over Gorham and Windham so far), a regional finalist in 2009. Last year, the Stags beat the visiting Red Riots, 21-0, arguably South Portland’s low point of the season. Scarborough wasn’t able to join South Portland at 2-0. After beating host Massabesic in a 33-29 thriller in the opener, the Red Storm hosted perennial contender Thornton Academy last weekend and despite having ample chances, fell 33-7. Scarborough trailed 7-0 at halftime, but could have easily been tied or ahead, having chances inside Golden Trojans’ territory. The visitors broke the game open in the second half, scoring 26 points. The Red Storm’s lone score came in the third period when senior quarterback Jack Adams hooked up with senior Mike Cyr for a short passing touchdown. “I felt like our kids really competed well against a very strong team,” said first-year Scarborough coach Lance Johnson. “We

made too many mistakes and did not take advantage of the opportunities we had in the first half. Senior Zach Bean led the Red Storm offense with 88 yards on 17 carries. Senior Dennis Liu was dominant on defense (11 tackles and a forced fumble) and special teams (an 80-yard kick return). Cyr made 10 tackles, while junior Kellen Smith had 12 and classmate Matt Brown finished with 11. Scarborough hosted Sanford (2-0) in a pivotal contest Thursday night. Last year, the Red Storm lost, 7-0, at the Redskins. “Coach Fallon has done a great job rebuilding the Sanford program and this will be a big test for us this week,” said Johnson. “They are running the ball extremely well with (Shawn) Goodrich and their QB is a dual threat.”

Boys’ soccer So much for the Scarborough boys’ soccer team being mortal this year. The Red Storm, winners of the past two Class A championships (with undefeated records in the process), were supposed to have come back to the pack a bit in 2010, but so far, that is simply not the case. Scarborough beat visiting Massabesic (5-0) and host Portland (3-1) in early ac-

tion, then blanked host South Portland (3-0) and visiting Marshwood (5-0) to improve to 4-0 on the season, while extending its three-year win streak to 40 games. Against the Red Riots, senior Kevin Philbrick and sophomore Austin Wilcox scored. In the win over the Hawks, junior Andrew Jones scored a highlight reel goal in the 17th minute and sophomore Chris Cleary struck late in the first half for a 2-0 lead at the break. Goals from junior Elijah Wyman, Jones and Wilcox in the second half accounted for the final score. “Marshwood’s athletic,” said Red Storm coach Mark Diaz. “They worked hard. I thought they played well in the first half and we played terrible, but we put two up. We should have had a third. We hit the post. We got the shutout. I got a lot of time for my young guys. My defense is playing so well. Our transition game’s been pretty good. We’re still maturing.” Scarborough was back in action Thursday afternoon when it hosted Gorham. The Red Storm go to Westbrook Tuesday. South Portland bounced back from its loss to Scarborough and improved to 3-1 Tuesday with a decisive 6-0 home win over Massabesic.

Steidl’s early goal, but the Warriors converted three penalty corners in the first half (including one after time expired) and went on to a 3-1 victory. “We played hard,” said Cape Elizabeth coach Darci Holland. “Our defense is usually very strong on corners. It was just one of those days. Having York and Wells back-to-back is tough. I still feel wonderful about this team. It’s one of the best teams I’ve ever coached. Solid talent. A lot of them played through the winter and want to be better players. It’s a very coachable, hard nosed group. Willing to get dirty and break a nail.” The Capers host Traip Friday and go to Lake Region Tuesday.

from previous page dozen minutes of the second half was the difference. Junior Dan Grazewski’s goal (from senior Nem Kaurin) broke the ice. Kaurin fed junior Will Bushey to make it 2-0 and senior Brooks Cannon, sophomore Damjan Draskovic, senior Dillon Leary and sophomore Dillon Burns all followed with tallies to account for the final score. The Red Riots are at Biddeford Saturday and host Marshwood Tuesday. Cape Elizabeth took a 2-0 record into Thursday’s showdown at rival Greely. The Capers, who blanked visiting Lake Region, 6-0, in their opener, held off visiting North Yarmouth Academy, 1-0, last Wednesday. Junior Tim Lavallee had the goal in the final minute of regulation. Cape Elizabeth hosts defending Class B state champion Falmouth Saturday and York Monday. Greater Portland Christian School of South Portland is 1-1 to date. The Lions dominated visiting Chop Point Christian, 9-1, in the opener, as Anthony Simpson erupted for a career-high seven goals. GPCS scored five times Tuesday, but lost, 6-5, at home to Buckfield. Ben Hammond scored twice for the Lions. Simpson added a goal and an assist. Matt Hammond and Jacob Rudolph also tickled the twine, while Sam Carlson made nine saves.

Girls’ soccer On the girls’ side, while Scarborough was earning an inspirational overtime victory at Gorham (please see story), other local teams are chugging along. South Portland was 1-1-1 entering Wednesday’s contest at Massabesic. The Red Riots, who defeated host Westbrook (3-1) in the opener before falling, 2-1, at Noble, played at top contender Cheverus Friday. The teams battled to a 0-0 tie, an encouraging result for South Portland against an established foe. “So far, I like the way we’ve played,” said Red Riots coach Andy Pappas. “Cheverus had a strong game today, but I felt we kept their opportunities to a minimum. It was a good effort defensively. We know it’s a long season. Anybody can beat anybody. I think we’re the type of team that can compete in every game.” South Portland is home with Biddeford Saturday. Cape Elizabeth, which didn’t play for nine days, took a 2-0 mark into Thursday’s home game against Greely. The Capers host Falmouth Saturday and go to defending Class B champion York Monday. GPCS is 1-0-1. The Lions had no trouble with visiting Valley in the opener, rolling, 5-0. Elaine Beech had four goals. Tuesday, GPCS settled for a 5-5 home tie against Buckfield, rallying from deficits of 3-1 at halftime and 5-3 in the second half. Beech had three goals, while Liz Garland and Robyn Waugh also scored.

Field hockey Scarborough’s field hockey team won a state championship for the first time last fall, then graduated a ton of talent, meaning the Red Storm were supposed to come back to the pack in 2010. It hasn’t happened. Scarborough is three games into a new season and has outscored the opposition, 15-1. After downing visiting Portland, 5-1, in the opener, the Red Storm shut out host Thornton Academy, 3-0, last Friday, then dominated visiting Windham, 7-0, Tuesday.

John Jensenius / For The Forecaster

Cape Elizabeth senior Leo Ledman edges Greely’s Conner Regan by a second to finish seventh during last weekend’s cross country meet in Cumberland. The Capers came in first as a team.

Kelsey Howard scored. In the win over the Eagles, Flet, Howard and sophomore Grace Whelan had first half goals and Felt, sophomore Karli-An Gilbert, senior Lauren Sullivan and senior Chelsey Michaud added second half tallies. “We know we have a championship to protect and the girls want it,” said Scarborough coach Kerry Mariello. “They’re just as hungry as the last group was. The dynamics are different, but the mentality’s the same. It’s definitely been a pleasant surprise. They’re catching on quickly.” The Red Storm were at Bonny Eagle Thursday, play host to Deering (now coached by former assistant Marcia Wood) and visit Kennebunk Monday. South Portland is still seeking its first win, although the Red Riots have been competitive. Recent losses to visiting Sanford (2-0) and host Westbrook (3-1) left South Portland 0-3 on the year. Senior Felicia Farnham had the goal against the Blue Blazes. The Red Riots hoped to get in the win column Thursday at home against Biddeford. Saturday, they visit Cheverus. They’re home Monday against Gorham. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth won its first three games, then ran into the league’s elite. Saturday, the Capers fell at home to York, 4-0. Monday, they hosted Wells and took a 1-0 lead on sophomore Lauren

Cape Elizabeth’s girls’ cross country team, the three-time defending Class B state champion and second-ranked team in the latest coaches’ poll, won a meet at Greely (which also included York) last weekend. The Capers were paced by senior Kelsey Barton, who was third individually (20 minutes, 41 seconds). Cape Elizabeth’s boys also came in first, paced by senior Reid Douty (who was second, 17:29). The Capers (ranked third by the coaches) join Gray-New Gloucester and Traip at Wells Friday. The Scarborough boys, ranked first in the coaches’ poll, won their opening meet at Marshwood. South Portland finished second and Thornton Academy also participated. Red Storm junior Nick Morris was the top individual (17:15). The Red Riots were paced by senior Sam Redstone (eighth, 18:51). In the girls’ meet, Scarborough (ninth in the coaches’ poll) was first and


South Portland second. Red Riots sophomore sensation Nyajock Pan came in first individually (21:35). Red Storm sophomore Sarah Dugas placed second (21:54). Scarborough joined Kennebunk at Westbrook Friday. South Portland hosted Biddeford and Noble.


On the links, Scarborough is leading the way with a 3-1 mark. The Red Storm won at South Portland, 8.5-4.5 Tuesday, dropping the Red Riots to 1-3. Cape Elizabeth is still seeking its first win after falling, 4-3, at home to Greely Tuesday.


Scarborough’s volleyball squad took a 2-2 mark into Wednesday’s showdown at seven-time defending state champion Greely. Saturday, the Red Storm split home matches against Yarmouth (losing in four games, 13-25, 23-25, 25-18, 23-25) and Mt. Desert Island (winning in five, 25-19, 2513, 15-25, 23-25, 15-5). In the loss to the Clippers, junior Brittany Bona had seven kills and four digs, junior Emily Robbins finished with 19 assists, Amber Bowen had nine digs and Meghan McAlary added eight digs. In the victory, Bona finished with 10 aces, 11 kills, 11 digs and two blocks, Robbins had 17 assists and four aces and Bridget Hicks added nine digs. Scarborough goes to NYA Friday and is home against undefeated Biddeford Monday. Cape Elizabeth is 0-5 after recent three-game losses to Cony, Falmouth and Gorham. The Capers were at Greely Thursday and host NYA Monday. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at

quickness.” The Cape Elizabeth rush collapsed on Werner on his first attempt of the contest and forced him to badly underthrow his target down the home sideline. Junior Derek Roberts, the Capers cornerback on defense and first-year quarterback on offense, came back to make the interception at the York 33 to set up the game’s first score with 6:21 left in the first quarter. On the offensive side of the ball, Cape Elizabeth uses one of its two standout linebackers as its featured back. Senior Jack Barber hammered in the first of his two-yard touchdown runs in the game to take the 7-0 lead. Returning noticeably lighter and more agile, Barber rushed 22 times for 88 yards, including powering in the game’s final score with 2:39 left in the fourth quarter. “We lost a lot in the backfield to graduation and I knew I had to come back with more speed,” Barber said. “That’s all we worked on this summer. I lost about 20

from page 11 hits on Wes Werner, the Wildcats new starting quarterback with senior Chris Cole lost for the year to injury. Lavallee also freed up senior defensive ends Kyle Danielson and Connor McAleney to run wild off the edges in pursuit of the ball carrier or to knock Werner around when he looked to stand in and throw. The tall, lean and quick pair at end changes the entire look of Cape Elizabeth’s defense with Danielson and McAleney flying around making plays in a more college-style scheme. McAleney shined bright against York, with three sacks, several quarterback pressures, plus another sack on the punter for a big loss early in the game. “They didn’t seem ready for us on the line,” said Danielson. “We’re a different team than we were last year. I think York didn’t expect us to be as fast as we are off the ball on defense. We had some speed last year but this team has more

pounds and feel a lot faster. The offensive line did a great job run blocking out there. York is a great football team and we’re happy to get the win.” In the run game for York (0-2) the same concept held true. The Wildcats do have a nice stable of tailbacks with home run potential, but they found it tough going against Cape Elizabeth. York was in the process of deciding on how best to avoid Lavallee when they got a smarting reminder about the Capers inside linebacker corps. The two captain Jacks, as in McDonald and Barber, hit for keeps and put several punishing licks on York ball carriers between the tackles. McDonald had a few jolting hits on the Wildcats, one that led to a fumble he recovered with 8:56 left in the second quarter. Cape Elizabeth was unable to capitalize this time on the scoreboard, but senior Patrick Tyler’s punt did pin the Wildcats back inside the 5-yard line and led to the Capers second score. The Wildcats picked up six yards on three running plays and were forced to kick it away from inside the 10 with

2:00 left in the half. The punt sailed a mile high but only 20 yards downfield and sent the Capers offense back out with a first down at the Wildcats’ 29. Three plays later, Roberts connected with McAleney scraping opposite just inside the end zone from the 8-yard line for a Cape Elizabeth touchdown. Tyler drilled the second of his three point-after kicks and the Capers took a 14-0 lead at the break. But this is when things started to change. The Wildcats went to the ground and featured senior Brad Stephens, who rushed for over 1,000 yards last year as the second option, senior Brad Radke and yes of course, another Prugar. Sophomore Aaron Prugar enters the mix one year after his brother Jared was named conference MVP at tailback for York. The Prugars are the Wildcats’ version of the Lavallee trilogy, Zach Prugar was in the middle of all those early battles in 2004 and 2005. The Wildcats opened the second half with their longest drive of the game. continued next page

from page 11 “We settled a little bit towards the end of the first half, but we really never got our rhythm down. We’re a possession team. We like to knock the ball around. When we started doing that in the second half, using our outside midfielders, that’s when we started to get chances where we got down the field and looked for people to serve in the box. It got better as the game went along.” Gorham’s Kylie Perrin had her shot from in close turned away on a diving save by Scarborough netminder Jill Deering with 20 minutes to play in the second half. Perhaps the closest call for the Red Storm came 11 minutes later when Deering was out of position as a bouncing ball was headed for the net before it cleared away by Scarborough back Heidi Bogdanovich just before the goal line.

Deering came up big again with 3:40 left in regulation when she slid to grab a ball just off the foot of Kiersten Turner. The two collided but Deering maintained possession. Scarborough controlled possession in both overtimes. The Red Storm’s best opportunity in the first five-minute extra session came when Tyson slid to lift a shot past a charging Perkins. The soft shot arched just over the crossbar. The Red Storm kept the pressure on throughout the second overtime, but it took Little’s improbable score from deep to finally break the tie. “It was definitely nice to get the win,” Little said. “I knew that our team deserved it. We picked it up.” After some recent playoff heartbreaks, Scarborough is poised to put it all together this season. With a talented and balanced veteran squad, the Red Storm feel this could be a special season. “It’s great because we’ve been playing together for a long time, since we were



Werner engineered a nine-play, fourminute march that moved York across midfield to the Cape Elizabeth 31 before stalling. After having no luck early, the Wildcats sustained drives and ran twice as many plays as the Capers in the second half. York took 42 snaps from the line of scrimmage in the final two quarters to just 22 for the home team. But it wouldn’t be enough to overcome the defending regional champs. Cape Elizabeth came up with the big plays when it counted and preserved the shutout with a last minute goal line stand. Lavallee brought the game to a fitting end when he batted down Werner’s last attempt on fourth down as the clock ticked down to zero. “There were no surprises out there tonight,” said Filieo. “This was just two teams gutting it out. It reminded me of when I used to play for (coach John) Wolfgram. We have a young offense that just needs to get some more experience. There’s enough time for us to figure out ways to score. Until then, the defense should be able to keep us in a lot of games and we’ll force turnovers like we did tonight to get the ball in good spots to score. What we like is that we really 9A01 didn’t play that well tonight and still came away with a win against a good football team from York.” Cape Elizabeth will be expected to win easily on the road Saturday against Fryeburg Academy and will return home on Friday night, Sept. 24, to host Falmouth in what should be a battle of unbeatens.



young,” Little said. “We know this is our year to try to go all the way.” Farley likes what he sees out of his team thus far. “I think these kids are hungry,” the coach said. “We’ve had a lot of trouble the last couple of years going into playoff time. This team, in every game so far, we’ve put 80 minutes together, which has been a problem for us for a long time. This team is really impressive with the way they are approaching games and they’re really coming out and putting pressure on the other team for the full 80 minutes.

from page 1 overstepping its boundaries with the proposed ban and overreacting to a relatively small problem. “I think we’re bordering on a violation of civil rights,” Blake said. “More people die from speeding (than) from BB guns. Are we going to make driving illegal?” The wording of the proposal could prove problematic for owners of the weapons: “No person shall have in his possession in or on any city street, way, sidewalk, park or other public place any bow and arrow, BB gun, air gun of any kind, gas pellet gun of any kind, spring gun, sling shot or any other instrument or weapon made for the purpose of throwing or projecting missiles of any kind by any means whatsoever within the city, except in performance of official law enforcement duties, at authorized shooting galleries or ranges or when en route to the same, or in self defense.” Blake said the city is sending mixed signals. “We promote businesses to sell these in the city,” he said. “We’re telling the community, ‘You can buy them, but you can’t use them.’” While people would be allowed to have these weapons on their way to a shooting gallery, the proposed wording could expose someone to being cited by police for transporting a newly purchased pellet gun, sling shot or bow and arrow home from a store. “That’s a problem that probably needs to be addressed,” Googins said. A violation of the ordinance would

result in a civil summons, unless the device is used in other criminal activity, such as threatening someone or shooting windows, Googins said. The city of Portland has an ordinance prohibiting the discharge of pellet guns, bows and sling shots within city limits, unless at authorized galleries. It also prohibits the possession of loaded pellet guns in public places, including in a vehicle on a public way, between sunset and sunrise. Coward said the council is looking for public input about the proposed change. The majority of councilors, he said, are undecided about whether only to ban the weapons on public property, or extend the ban to use on private property. “At this point, it’s an open question,” Coward said. “Everyone understands there are personal liberty issues.” The Maine Civil Liberties Union declined to take a position on the proposed ordinance. A spokesman for the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine could not be reached. Googins, however, said he would prefer to have a complete ban, because of the city’s small house lots and congested neighborhoods. He also noted the difficulty officers face when responding to calls, where they may have to differentiate between handguns and pellet guns. “It would be easier for us if there was a total prohibition,” Googins said. “It’s how much they look like real guns that are the problem.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

Exploring the Cathance River Nature Preserve in Topsham For a bit of a Gulf Hagas “Grand Canyon of Maine” experience close to home, consider a visit to the beautiful 230-acre Cathance River Nature Preserve in Topsham this September. Seven miles of hiking trails comprised of five interconnected loop trails provide ample room to explore upland forests, a striking circular heath and 1.5 miles of Cathance River frontage. The Cathance River originates in Bowdoin and flows southeast 20 miles to its meeting with Merrymeeting Bay near Bowdoinham. In the preserve the river drops nearly 90 feet, providing dramatic chutes, cataracts and rock formations. The water levels are low right now, exposing ledges and boulders not usually seen. During the high water of spring expert “steep creek” boaters take on the formidable challenge of negotiating the Class1III whitewater tumbling down through the preserve. When you visit now it is hard to imagine there ever being enough water to boat down through the narrow passageways lined with sharp cliff edges, hairpin

turns and hull-gashing ledges. To get to the preserve enter the Highland Green development off the Route 196 Topsham Bypass and follow the Village Road into Highland Green for 0.8 miles. Turn right onto Evergreen Circle and follow it a short distance to where the road becomes gravel. From here drive another half mile to a small parking lot on the left. The preserve trails are well marked (in fact, this is the best-signed hiking area we have ever seen). Download a preserve map from the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust website (www.btlt. org) or pick one up at the Cathance River Education Alliance kiosk on the southeastern edge of the mile-long Barnes Leap Loop. We recently enjoyed three hours of early morning exploring, leaving only the eastern Ravine Loop for another time. The Heath Loop encircles a unique mid-coastal fen. We were stunned by the display of cotton grass permeating the bog. The margins of the western shoreline were pure white, magnificently bordered

above by the deep dark reds of swamp maples marking the change of seasons. This is one of the greatest concentrations of bog cotton we have ever seen on our hikes in Maine. As you wind your way around the bog you will see the remains of significant quarrying operations undertaken over the years. As far back as the mid 1800s and up into the 1950s this area was mined for feldspar, used in the making of ceramics and pottery. Other interesting uses included the making of false teeth and the creation of abrasive soaps like Bon Ami. In 1927, feldspar mills in Topsham alone produced 1/8 of all the feldspar mined in the U.S. and 1/16 of the world’s production. By following portions of the Barnes Leap Trail, a loop connector trail over to the Beaver Loop, and the Rapids Trail you will meander along the river for more than a mile. There are many benches strategically placed to maximize the viewing angles. We enjoyed watching a blue heron fly out of a placid back eddy as we came around a sharp bend in the trail, and a few minutes later saw a kingfisher fly low over a large downstream pool. Beaver and muskrat can often be seen as well. The evergreen forest is cool even on a warm day, the dark shadows eerily myste-

���� �������� �� �������

rious. The sound of gurgling water mixes with the gentle brush of wind through the treetops. Eventually you will come to a wooden fence high above the water. You will see the remains of an old bridge across the dark chasm. It is a 20-foot drop straight down to the narrow ribbon of water. A large cave has been carved out of the vertical wall by the powerful swirling spring waters. Eventually we met up with the blueblazed Rapids Trail and walked down onto Comment on this story at:

a large expanse of gently sloping polished ledges. The sun was just poking around a sharp downstream bend in the river so we had the luxury of being either in the shadows or the sun, or half and half. Above us a series of drops plunged down and past the ledges with the water funneling into a tongue of white only a yard wide. We walked over to a sharp chest-high ledge protruding out from the opposite side of the river and leaned out to rest on it, the water tumbling under us. We could only imagine the same spot in the spring when the drop might possibly rival the grandeur of Little Niagara Falls in Baxter State Park with its torrent of snow melt in search of the great river below. At open spots in the preserve canopy we noted carpets of wintergreen, their scarlet berries just starting to form. Canada mayflowers, whose prolific ground-level yellow-green cupped leaves dominate the May forest floor, now are sporting small tan berries just starting to turn red. Sumac leaves are starting to add brilliant yellows and reds to the trailside palette. We figure three more trips into the preserve are definitely in order over the next few months: to see the full flush of foliage colors, to snowshoe in to see the frozen waterfalls and ice-glazed walls of winter and an early spring trip to see the narrows swollen with raging whitewater.

also can make the space desireable for current homeowners. Here are some renovation decisions to consider that can make the kitchen an ideal gathering spot for family and friends. • Space: The best kitchens for entertaining are roomy and feature an open floor plan. For homeowners who have limited space, the first decision may be to expand the kitchen by building an extension on the home or taking down a wall. Many homeowners find that spacious eatin-kitchens are preferable over a small kitchen and formal dining area. So if a dining room abuts the kitchen, remove the wall to create a large kitchen space. continued next page

“No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best.” This saying has adorned wall plaques in many people’s kitchens, and for most individuals the sentiment is quite true. The kitchen tends to be the gathering place for the family. When thinking about renovating the kitchen, it pays to have entertaining in mind. It is widely known that improvements to kitchens and bathrooms often reap the greatest return on investment. When making changes to the kitchen, paying attention to the trend of kitchen entertaining can make the room even more valuable – should a homeowner choose to sell at a later point in time.

Kitchen design from previous page • Multiple islands: Instead of one large island, consider two islands. They are less cumbersome, making it easier for guests to easily traverse the kitchen. One island can be set up with a prep sink and wine cooler, while the other can feature a countertop-mounted induction stovetop for convenience and safety. A few tall stools around the back of one island can provide seating while prepping, or for simple conversation. • Company cleanup: Think about large sinks that can accommodate tall pots and pans, such as a double-basin apron sink. Drawer-style dishwashers can be installed so that delicate china and glassware can be washed separately from grimy pots. This segregated style means homeowners can save money by washing smaller loads as needed. • Gathering niche: A butler’s pantry or another alcove equipped with beverage center enables guests to gather in an area away from the main cooking and preparation space. • Breakfast nook: Cozy banquette seating nestled next to a picture window is a great spot for early-morning coffee or when overnight guests trickle down for a hearty breakfast. Decorative brick or stone -- or even a fireplace next to the nook -- completes the warm and fuzzy feel of the area. • Large table: Homeowners who do a lot of hosting can benefit from a table that seats many. Purchase a large table or one that can be expanded with a drop-in leaf. • Hidden appliances: The kitchen should be decorated according to homeowners’ preferences. Key appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators and even ovens can be masked with cabinet facing, so they blend right into the rest of the cabinetry. A larger refrigerator with features for entertaining, such as room



for platters or bakery cakes, is ideal for the host and hostess. A separate beverage drawer eliminates the need to open the refrigerator repeatedly, plus it’s at a great height for kids looking for juice boxes. • Lighting: Homeowners should con-



sider many different lighting sources. Pendant lights over islands illuminate these work stations. Recessed lighting under cabinets can brighten countertop areas that tend to be dark. A chandelier or bold fixture over the table shows off

the amazing meal. Because the kitchen is such a gathering spot, renovations to this room should reflect how much foot traffic and use the kitchen gets.

Pay per bag from page 1 Town Council planned to consider a pay-per-bag system of waste disposal as a way to generate revenue outside of property taxes. Councilors have been gathering information since January and held two workshop sessions with the Recycling Committee to discuss the proposal. After hearing the comments on Monday, Chairwoman Anne Swift-Kayatta said a decision on the proposal will not be made quickly, although the council will likely come to a consensus at its Nov. 1 workshop. “I want to allay anyone’s concerns,” Swift-Kayatta said. “Speaking only for myself, I don’t sense that there is any great impetus on the council to decide anything on this in the next few months. Don’t be fearful that next week you are going to read that suddenly there will be pay-per-bag.” Elizabeth Scifres of Longfellow Drive said the system unfairly targets families with young children. “We recycle everything we possibly can,” she said.

“We compost, we recycle, but I have babies and babies wear diapers and diapers are not recyclable.” She also said the system unfairly targets residents who cannot afford the additional household cost of garbage bags. “I’d love to see more education and more structure at the (trash) hoppers,” she said. “I do urge the council to rethink this position, and look at alternate ways ... to decrease costs at the dump.” Richard Berman of Hannaford Cove Road also spoke against the proposal and said it could be a great fix if the system would reduce property taxes. But he said the proposal is starting to “look, feel and smell like a hidden tax.” Bruce Greenwood of Hunts Point Road said the state is trying to position itself as a leader in green economy, but for towns to encourage residents to buy plastic disposal bags to “preserve their trash for generations to come” does not align well with green practices. He said a curbside recycling program would promote a more environmentally friendly way to encourage recycling

I’ve heard a lot of good ones tonight,” he said. “Pay-per-throw may not be the center of our environmental stewardship plan, but we’ll hopefully pursue other things as well.” Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or

from page 1

cussing possible changes to the regulations before it sent out the July 2009 letter and is in the process of putting together a stakeholder group to review and revise its rules. Diane Smith, attorney for the Maine Disability Rights Center, said the Sept. 10 letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;shows us how important it is to complete a comprehensive review of Chapter 33, which was promised to us a year ago, instead of scatter-shot changes like this.â&#x20AC;? Chapter 33 of the DOEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules was created by an advisory group in 2002 after a student was improperly restrained, put into lengthy seclusion and locked inside a box. Smith said DRC has filed several complaints about possible Chapter 33 violations, some of which were filed last spring and still have not been resolved. She said DRC would like to see a clear process by which parents and advocacy

groups could bring complaints for investigation. Stockford said creating that process would be part of the stakeholder groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals. Shortcomings with school policies were initially brought to light in The Forecaster reports by several families that shared their experiences in Scarborough. Alison Marchese, special education director in Scarborough, said new training her staff received this summer did not include instruction on any kind of prone or air-way restrictive restraints. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This (letter) doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change anything at all of what our practice is,â&#x20AC;? Marchese said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never used restraints where pressure is applied to a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back. You can do a prone restraint and not have any pressure to the (childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) back.â&#x20AC;? Marchese said the school had used prone restraints in the past, but that the new training program did not include that type of restraint.

September 17, 2010

Prone and basket-hold restraints were shown in a U.S. Government Accountability report to be dangerous, particularly for students who were overweight or had breathing problems such as asthma. The recent state DOE letter referenced this report and said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;neither the federal government nor the states comprehensively track the use of restraint or seclusion data, or related injuries, so the true extent of the harm from restraint is unclear.â&#x20AC;? One elementary school student in Scarborough, Zeke Herb, whose parents provided The Forecaster with restraint forms completed by Scarborough staff, was repeatedly subjected to restraints, including two-person prone and basket holds, even after his parents provided documentation of severe breathing problems, including asthma. The Sept. 10 DOE letter extends the prohibition to â&#x20AC;&#x153;include all children and any position which restricts the free movement of the diaphragm or chest so as to interrupt normal breathing and speech.â&#x20AC;?

Stockford said the letter was intended to ban all airway-restrictive restraints and specifically prone restraints. When asked if he thought prone restraints could be done without restricting a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s airway, he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to see how. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure they can be.â&#x20AC;? The directive also requires that any restraint that results in airway stress, physical marks or signs or symptoms of pain must be reported immediately to the school nurse and that the nurse must assess the student promptly. However, that assessment can be performed either in person or remotely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This seems to be a response to the fact that a lot of schools donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a nurse in every building,â&#x20AC;? Smith, of the DRC, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But how do you do an assessment of what can sometimes be brain injuries (due to airway restriction and lack of oxygen) from afar? It seems like this kind of thing could be put on the top of the nurseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda.â&#x20AC;? Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or

Take a tour SOUTH PORTLAND — The School Department said in a press release on Wednesday that it will hold a series of tours and forums about the proposed renovation of South Portland High School. Voters in November will be asked to borrow $41.5 million for the more than $47 million project. Events will take place on: • Tuesday, Sept. 21, a tour and forum, 6-8 p.m., SPHS main entrance. • Friday, Oct. 1, a tour, 5:30 p.m., SPHS main entrance. • Tuesday, Oct. 5, a tour, 6 p.m., SPHS main entrance. • Tuesday, Oct. 12, a tour, 6 p.m., SPHS main entrance. • Thursday, Oct. 14, 6:30 p.m., community forum, Skillin School gym. • Saturday, Oct. 23, 12 p.m., a tour, SPHS main entrance. • Wednesday, Oct. 27, 6-8 p.m., a tour and forum, SPHS main entrance. Drafts of the renovation project will be available at South Portland schools, City Hall, South Portland Parks and Recreation Department, Public Library’s Main Branch and at each of the above meetings. Additional information will be available at the various school open houses and events prior to the November election. The department will also try to accommodate personal tours of the school for people unable to attend the scheduled events. Call 8710555.



Comment on this story at:

from page 1 said there are seven or eight “far-flung” entrances at the school that must remain unlocked throughout the day – an arrangement that compromises student security. The proposed $47.3 million renovation plan will leave two main entrances, where visitors will enter into a locked vestibule before being allowed access to the building. The tour also highlighted nearly a dozen elevation changes throughout the school, which limits handicapped accessibility. Project architect Scott Pakulski, of Harriman Associates, said the elevation changes 26 feet from the main office to Beal Gym. While the school has an elevator, make-shift wheel chair ramp and a temporary “phone booth” style elevator, Crocker said handicapped students opt for extreme means to get to where they need to go. “We have had kids in wheelchairs who have chosen to go outside, even in the winter,” Crocker said. “It’s just too much.” Meanwhile, water damage in ceilings and walls was evident throughout the building, along with areas where the floor is separating from the wall. Crocker pointed out areas of the school containing asbestos, outdated electrical and air circulation systems. Laura Ellis, a parent of two high school students, said she is well aware of the issues at the school, but was attending the training to solidify that knowledge and understand the proposed renovation. “Whatever they need between now and Election Day, I’m willing to do,”

Ellis said. John Backman, a parent of first-, thirdand fifth-graders at Small Elementary School, said at a recent meeting held on a rainy night in the high school library, the books were covered in plastic and buckets collected water dripping through the roof. “It’s really a shock each time,” Backman said of his several tours through the school. “It really is deplorable.” The proposed renovation, which would take about three years to complete, would add about 95,000 square feet of space and accommodate 1,100 students. After the meeting, many of those in attendance sought clarity about how the school’s accreditation would be affected if the bond is rejected. Superintendent Suzanne Godin said the school will never lose its accreditation, as long as it continues to pay the accreditation agency, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Godin said being placed on probation would be the worst possible outcome. While that status would be noted on student transcripts, Godin said it would be difficult to predict how it would affect their chances of getting into college. “The worst impact is what it does to home values,” said Godin, predicting those values will decline. “That’s where your talking point is.” RenewSPHS organizer Sue Adams said she is encouraged by the level of public involvement in the push to pass the high school bond. Adams was also involved in a failed 2007 effort to pass a $56 million renovation bond that was defeated by a 3-1 margin. That plan has been scaled back



by eliminating a second gym, an artificial turf field and four classrooms. She said she knows the group has a tough row to hoe between now and Election Day. The group plans to make bumper stickers and signs, and set up informational tables at community and school events to educate voters. In addition to setting up meetings with local churches, neighborhood groups and organizations, the group has a Facebook page and plans on launching a website, “We know we can get this measure passed. People are coming out of the woodwork,” Adams said. “We have to be tireless in our efforts to get the word out.” Ralph Cabana, who has served on the Secondary Schools Facility Committee since it was formed six years ago, said the level of community support this time gives him reason to be optimistic. “Sometimes it seems like we’re hanging out in the wind on our own,” Cabana said. “My heart is full.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

The new pier will be built next to an existing pier, which juts out into the shallow bay near the co-op building and restaurant. It will include a hydraulic lift for fishermen to use when hauling their catch. Hall said the pier, approximately half of which will be paid for by state and federal funds, will not require user fees for fishermen. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or
