Higgins Beach bathhouse could cost an extra $85K By Will Graff SCARBOROUGH — The Town Council on Wednesday night authorized an extra $85,000 to cover potential cost overruns for the construction of the new Higgins Beach bath-

house. Additional costs could be seen if the town decides to make a few upgrades, including cement siding and solar panels, Town Manager Tom Hall said. The lowest bid for the project

came in at more than $301,000, up from original estimates of $288,000. About $35,000 of the 2013 capital improvement budget amount for the bath house has already been used for previous improvement projects,

Hall said. "Contingency is wise," he said. "Let's hope we don't have to use it." The bathhouse will be built near the Ocean Avenue public parking lot and would include

changing rooms, bathrooms and an exterior rinse-off area. It would be open year-round to cater to the off-season demand from surfers and would be See page 36

Knightville traffic, parking revision heads to final vote

to understand their evolving needs and to respond in ways that produce the well-rounded, educated and highly skilled

By Will Graff SOUTH PORTLAND — A one-block section of Ocean Street is now a vote away from becoming a one-way street with angled parking, after a City Council vote Monday night. The 6-1 council vote, with Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis opposed, paves the way for converting Ocean Street into a northbound, one-way street between E and D streets. The ordinance amendment will allow angled parking to continue in front of businesses on the west side of the street. Monday's vote was not unexpected, and followed several protracted council discussions about whether to keep the angled parking sought by the business owners, rather than proceeding with a plan to maintain two-way traffic and switch to parallel parking after completion of an extensive infrastructure and beautification project in the neighborhood. The vote was a first reading and will be followed by another public hearing and vote on Oct. 1, which would confirm the change. The conversion of the Ocean Street block will create 14 angled spaces on the west side of the street and six parallel spaces on the east side of the street, according to plans prepared by Dan Riley, an engineer with Sebago Technics. The parking angles and di-

S. Portland launches 2nd public preschool program By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — Some furniture was still on order, and the first bus was about 30 minutes late, but the expansion of the city's preschool program was met with enthusiasm and energy Sept. 10 at James O. Kaler Elementary School. Parents who put their children on the bus and then came to school to greet

them before classes did not fret about the delayed arrival, while expressing optimism about what the program offers. Shawn and Kristen McGillicuddy said their son, Brendan, was ready to go. "He was very excited to get on the bus and go to the big-boy school," Kristen McGillicuddy said. The four-hour weekday program is the

second established by the School Department. The first, at the Opportunity Alliance Family Center in Brick Hill, opened in February 2011. The department plans to provide preschool classes, and the transportation to them, throughout the city by 2015. See page 34

Artist helps bring in outdoors at memory-care facility By Amber Cronin PORTLAND — Inspired by her grandmother's experience, a South Portland artist will bring the outdoors inside for residents of a Merrymeeting Drive memory-care facility. Francine Schrock's grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and spent time in a facility like Fallbrook Woods, which is off Allen Avenue. She said that when she was approached by Fallbrook Woods Administrator Linda Olore, she wanted to “contribute to the people” to give them something beautiful to look at. Olore approached Schrock after hearing about her work from local musician Kate Schrock (no relation). “I met Kate on Facebook and we communicated over the course of months and she suggested that I do a mural for Fallbrook because she does a lot of painting here, interior painting,” Schrock said. “So I met with Linda and we talked about doing a mural.” Over the next several weeks Schrock and Olore met with residents to hear their ideas for what the mural should be. “I had an idea in my head to bring in this arbitrary image that I made up so I brought that to the meeting and showed

them my work,” Schrock said. “They went through it and said we don't like this, we like that and they found one image that was to die for.” After residents chose the image they wanted to see on the entryway wall, Schrock brought the ideas back to her studio in South Portland and got to work painting a small-scale version. On Monday, Schrock began the process of transferring the mural to the wall, with

an audience of residents looking on. “I want to watch and watch every single speck of it,” resident Katherine Collins said. “I can't believe it. It really is beautiful.” While many of the residents participated in the selection of the image, some of them won't remember the process, said Kristen Anderson, life enrichment director.

“We're really hoping that they'll enjoy watching Francine paint and watching the progress of the mural,” Anderson said. “We're hoping that those images that really resonated with them, every time they see it, it will be something new and pleasing.” Residents said they are very excited

Board OKs plan for Oak Hill assisted living center By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — With needed state and federal permits in hand, developers proposing an 81-bed assisted living center off Black Point Road gained final Planning Board approval Monday night. The board did not seek public comment on the plans before its final site review. The Rochester, N.Y.,-based Wegman Cos. has sought approval to build on an 8.5-acre parcel it bought in August 2011. The facility will will be constructed down the slope from Black Point Road, on the east side. The two-story building would be about 59,000 square feet. Plans gained preliminary approval in January, and the Zoning Board of Appeals approved a 20-bed center for residents with dementia or Alzheimer's disease in March. The project has been contested at almost every step by neighbors who formed the Friends of Oak Hill. Among the group are Joan Jagolinzer, Lisa Ronco, John Phelps and Stephanie Ruel, and each has attended Planning Board and Town Council meetings throughout the year to express their opposition to

TD Beach to Beacon race sets fundraising record By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — The 15th annual TD Beach to Beacon 10k road race raised more than $164,000 for race beneficiaries, setting a new fundraising record. This year's beneficiary, The Center for Grieving Children, a Portland-based nonprofit that provides support for children Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/135650

and families experiencing grief, raised $65,500, with about half of the total coming from TD Bank. In the last two years combined, the race has raised more than $300,000 for Maine-based, non-profit youth organizations. "We're extremely pleased to be able to post a number like that," race President David Weatherbie said. "We look to see that number grow each year for these organizations, which provide vital services for our youth." In addition to the $30,000 from TD Bank, the chosen beneficiary receives 50 race bibs to use to raise additional funds. Bib for the general public typically sell out in less than five minutes. Past beneficiaries each receive 25 bibs, which helps them continue fundraising every year. Weatherbie said past and present beneficiaries have raised more than $1.5 million since the race's inception in 1998. One new aspect this year that gave a boost to fundraising was a charm created for the Center for Grieving Children by Cape Elizabeth jewelry store Ann Veronica. Half of the proceeds from the sale of the charm went to the beneficiary and will continue to do so through the end of the year, Weatherbie said. This year's race, on Aug. 4, also set a record for race finishers, Weatherbie said: 6,117 runners crossed the finish line. Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ theforecaster.net.

the project. While supporting the concept of an assisted living center in town, the group said the site was not a good one because of traffic congestion in Oak Hill, potential problems caused by water runoff from the property and a loss of habitat for the New England cottontail rabbit. Last month, Planning Board members invited more public comment because of revisions to Wegman's plans, but ended the discussion with a clear signal they were satisfied with questions about traffic, safety and water runoff. In August, board members and Chairman Allen Paul said the addition of a

dedicated left-turn lane to the facility and widening Black Point Road as it approaches Route 1 were welcome solutions to traffic problems in need of wide study by the town. Traffic studies by Tom Gorrill of Graybased Gorrill-Palmer Consulting Engineers and independent traffic engineer Bill Bray show about 16,000 vehicles travel on Black Point Road daily. During tourist season, the number increases by an estimated 5,000 daily. Bray and Gorrill estimated about six vehicles per hour would want to access the facility during peak traffic times. Board members were also satisfied with plans to build a clay-lined retention pond to hold water runoff and a filtering system to stem the flow downhill and

help direct it away nearby condominiums. Wegman has state Department of Environmental Protection permits in order, one for site location of the development and a transfer from Black Point Development. It now has to file documents for easements on the property and a stormwater maintenance plan with the town. David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@theforecaster.net.

District 6 race pits Scarborough, Gorham business owners By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — After eight years, voters in state Senate District 6 will see two new names on the Nov. 6 ballot. Democratic Sen. Phil Bartlett cannot seek a fifth, two-year term because of term limits laws. Republican Ruth Summers, of Scarborough, and Democrat James Boyle, of Gorham, are seeking the seat in the district encompassing the western portion of Scarborough, the southern portion of Westbrook and all of Gorham. Summers, 41, a Burnham Road resident, is the wife of Maine Secretary of State Charles Summers. He is the Republican candidate to replace U.S. Sen Olympia Snowe, R-Maine. The couple has one young son, and an adult son and daughter from his first marriage.

Dundee Road resident Boyle, 54, has four adult children with his partner, Susan. Boyle and Summers are seeking office for the first time. Each said they enjoy the process of meeting district residents. “I have knocked on more doors than I knew existed in Maine,” Summers joked. Summers, who owns Little Hands consignment, is the former executive director of the Education Foundation, established to grant scholarships to college students. She is a Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve and a former president of the Junior League of Portland. Her father served in the Marines, and Summers said military life has shaped her perspectives and readiness to serve in the state Senate.

“It makes me a different person, in that I find I can be pretty flexible,” she said. Since 1996, Boyle has consulted businesses on complying with environmental regulations and helped steward them through the application process for state and federal permits. He is also the owner of Avant Dance & Event Center in Westbrook and has worked as a real estate developer. He said his work allows him to understand and communicate the perspectives of opposing sides. “I don’t just jump on something and attack it,” he said. With the exception of opposing views on state Question 1, which would permit marriage for same-sex couples, Summers and Boyle both run toward the center of political opinion. Summers opposes same-sex marriages and said the very definition of marriage is between a man and woman. She said she does favor civil unions affording same-sex couples the legal rights and protections extended to married couples. “I can’t remember not being supportive of (same-sex marriage),” Boyle said. “If two people love each other, they should be able to marry each other.”

ture, which reformed regulatory and insurance laws. “Prior Legislatures preached a good game, but lacked follow-up,” she said. Reforms like allowing lobstermen to stack traps on docks are simple remedies, but Summers said it was a waste that so much legislative time and energy was spent on passing and then repealing such laws.

Boyle

Summers “Government does not make jobs,” Summers said. “If we make things more difficult, people will not come here.”

Boyle called the regulatory process “frustratingly complex” for ordinary people, but said some of the doubt about being business friendly is a matter of perception.

“Blanket statements covering complexity does not make a problem more simple,” he said.

Boyle said attending legislative workshops and hearings on LD-1, the bill introduced in 2011 by Gov. Paul LePage to reduce regulatory hurdles, was an impetus for him to run this year.

Seeing legislators as ordinary people is as important as seeing employees of government agencies in the same way and will help dispel the negativity surrounding the question of being business friendly, Boyle said.

The candidates agreed the larger effort of making Maine more business friendly lies in reducing the steps business owners are required to take for permits, as opposed to loosening actual regulations that affect quality of life in Maine.

September 21, 2012 from previous page “Not every regulation out there is bad, but if you have to go to seven different agencies, it is not good,” Summers said. Summers and Boyle are also in favor of using government subsidies to encourage use and development of alternative energy, but did not define how incentives might be created and implemented. “We have to develop alternative energy sources; it is the way the world is now,” Summers said. Boyle said inertia has played a role in preventing development and implementation of alternative energy sources, and said a long view of cost savings should always be considered. “A small incentive can pay big returns,” Boyle said.

Both candidates took moderate views of government spending on social programs. Summers said she has not made up her mind on whether too much or too little is spent, but said personal responsibility needs more emphasis. “Just because I have an ‘R’ in front of my name does not mean I want to see everybody eliminated from social services,” she said. Government programs should ensure people with mental health issues and developmental disabilities get the care they need, and Summers said she is especially concerned veterans of all ages are not neglected or harmed by budget cuts. Boyle said he has had a lucrative career as a consultant and entrepreneur, but his conversations on the campaign trail have reinforced the idea that constituents le-

Southern

gitimately need help. He added he felt cutting income taxes, then making cuts to MaineCare to pay for them, as in the last legislative session, was a questionable process. “I like the idea of balancing budgets,” Boyle said. “What makes it difficult is other people have not been as fortunate and they need a helping hand.” Boyle said he supports increased efforts by LePage and Attorney General William Schneider to prosecute fraud and abuse of social programs. “I think the problem is very small, but we should be on it,” he said. “It undermines the public trust.” David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@theforecaster.net.

Senate District 7: Contrast on energy, business, welfare By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — It’s been rapid turnover for voters in state Senate District 7, which will elect a senator Nov. 6 for the third time in two years. State Sen. Cynthia Dill, D-Cape Elizabeth, who won a special election in the district in May, is not seeking re-election because she is running for the U.S. Senate seat being

vacated by U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe. Mike Wallace and Rebecca Millett are competing for Dill’s seat, which represents Cape Elizabeth, South Portland and a portion of Scarborough. Republican candidate Wallace will face his first election for any office this November after the original Republican candidate, South Portland businessman Gary Crosby, dropped out.

Wallace is a U.S. Air Force veteran, works in information technology and was a Ron Paul delegate at the Republican National Convention. He lives with his partner and their five children in South Portland. Democratic candidate Millett is a former six-year Cape Elizabeth School Board member and has a background in finance. This is her first race for state office after defeating state Rep. Bryan Kaenrath in the June Democratic primary. She lives with her husband and twin daughters in Cape Elizabeth. Although the candidates largely agree on social issues facing the state – including Question 1, the same-sex marriage referendum, where they said they are both in favor of marriage equality – they have different approaches toward business, welfare programs and alternative energy development. Both candidates said Maine is not as unfriendly toward business as some ranking systems have suggested, but they have different approaches about how to boost Maine’s economy. A part of Millett’s economic focus is bringing together education, business, worker and economic development groups to develop a focused plan for the economy. “I want to have a real goal-oriented, outcome-oriented process,” she said. “Let’s be very specific about it and say, here’s what we want to do, here’s how we’re going to do it, here’s the time frame, here’s the resources that are going to be utilized, and actually implement it.” She said the state should focus on its

assets, such as its high standard of living, and use it as leverage to attract qualified, trained workers. Wallace said he is more focused on reducing regulations, especially for smaller Wallace businesses, placing specific importance on small-scale, local farming. “I’m really concerned about local food and would like us to be more independent,” he said, Millett noting that most of Maine’s food comes from far away. “Food distribution is really important. It doesn’t do us any good to have all these local farms, if (the food) is still sitting out in the field.” Wallace said he would like to see regulations for community efforts, like food pantries, dropped. “I can see for small people it’s incredibly frustrating to say, if they want to start a food pantry, or even just a neighborhood food drive, they can’t do it because of health regulations or because of permits,” he said. “I think with informed consent of everybody that’s participating, that’s ridiculous.” In addition to providing incentives for small farms in the state, he also said he would be in favor of a “flat tax” over the income tax.

Welfare

The candidates also had different approaches toward welfare programs. Millett said she does not think Maine spends too much on social programs, but said the state could be more efficient. She said she would maintain a specific focus

September 21, 2012 from previous page on early childhood education. “Are we going to do away with early education, like (Gov. Paul) LePage has recently made cuts into?” she said. “I think that’s an ill-advised, short-sided approach and creates more of a demand on our state later for fewer dollars earlier.” She also said safety nets for workers, particularly older workers, who she said are often discriminated against because of their age, should be a priority. She recalled recently meeting a 60-year-old worker, who worked for 30 years at Unum, was laid off and has been unable to find new work. “What do we say to her, ‘your 30 years didn’t matter, you’re now a burden to us?’” she said. “I think there are programs out there that are necessary to help people who, through no fault of their own, are struggling.” Wallace said his approach toward social programs would be to focus on prevention, by encouraging mentoring

for children to help break the cycles of poverty. “Kids needs to have an understanding of where they are coming from, so they can go through that process of overcoming their background,” he said. “What is our goal with our social services system, what are we trying to do with these people, maintain them? Or help them experience life?” He would also like to see strong mental health programs, he said. “I do think there is administrative waste, but we need to do something in communities where we have chronic mental health issues,” Wallace said, lending support for programs that address those issues. “It’s important to be connecting kids with mentors and mental health workers to help them understand what’s going on in life.”

subsidies for industry and instead favors deregulation as a way to encourage development. “People (say) regulations keep us safe, but the fact that I’ve seen is that regulations are lobbied for by the companies involved to protect their assets and to protect their interests,” he said. “I think the best thing that we can do as a market for energy is emphasize that the regulations would be minimal, but that you are also liable for what you do in this state.” In lieu of regulations, Wallace said the state should have ways to make sure companies are held responsible for any negative impact on the environment they might cause. “We need to be certain that any company that does business in Maine, that we have the reach to their assets to cover any potential liabilities,” he said. “It’s not a regulation or a bar. It’s a price that they would need to pay to do business in Maine.”

Millett said she would support subsidies for the development of alternative energy and thinks to not do so would be hypocritical compared with the history of energy development. “This argument that these industries should be able to do it on their own, flies completely in the face of what our nation has done in the past in regards to oil exploration and nuclear power development,” she said. “I think we’re sticking our heads in the sand if we think we don’t need to get serious about these things and make them a reality.” Environmental impact would also need to be considered for new energy sources, like noise pollution from wind turbines, Millett said.

Medically Based Weight Loss Program Showing Great Results

A combination of science and support has made losing weight a way of life for more than 1,600 clients of the Center for Weight Management & Wellness in Portland. Since opening in 2009, patients of the Center in Portland have shed more than 60,000 pounds. To the doctors who formed the practice, Dr. Verne Weisberg and Dr. Rodney Voisine, those results are heartening, but they are only a small part of the story. “The number on the scale doesn’t matter that much,” says Dr. Weisberg. “What we care most about is helping people learn how to feed themselves better and how to make positive changes that will last for a lifetime. The impetus for opening the Center came when Dr. Weisberg, a plastic surgeon, became frustrated

at the number of his patients who wanted an easy fix that he knew would not treat an underlying problem. “I would Dr. Weisberg often not know how to help them lose the weight they needed to lose, and I was sure that if they could lose weight they might not want surgery.” To the clients who have come to the Center, it is clear that Drs. Weisberg and Voisine have found a sensible and lasting approach to the problem that is currently faced by more than two-thirds of the U.S. population and baffles even the best of bariatric physicians. “I can’t say enough about them,”

claims James Matthews, who has lost 160 pounds with the Center by changing not just his diet but his attitude. “It’s a mindset,” he explains. “This is the best staff I’ve ever dealt with. They can’t help you enough, with encouragement and support.” Both Dr. Weisberg and Dr. Voisine have had a long-standing interest in the science of nutrition. “I’ve always been interested in how a nutrient-rich diet can promote health,” says Dr. Voisine. He used his medical and pharmaceutical knowledge to develop the Old Ocean House Farms brand of nutritional supplements with proven benefits that he offers patients at the center. “We are a medically-directed, physician-based practice,” Dr. Voisine adds. “We are not a

commercial weight loss program.” Both doctors are members of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and are working toward certification by the American Board of Obesity Medicine. The Center’s patients also reap rewards in measureable medical benefits. These include significant decreases in overall cholesterol and body fat composition, a reduced need for diabetes medications, and lower blood pressure readings.

caprice and insecurity. First I couldn’t get agents to read my material, then they would read it but didn’t like it, then they liked it but wouldn’t represent me because nobody was hiring and the industry was dying. Finally, an agent took me on as a favor to a client who was my friend. The agent sent my material out to shows, starting the whole cycle over again, only with more powerful people rejecting me. It took forever to get the first job, forever and a half to get the second. Whenever a job ended, I figured that was it. Show business finally found me out, and I’ll never work again. More than once, I cleaned out my desk after being called in to see my boss, and then found out he was promoting me, not firing me. More than once, bosses told me I was the one indispensable member of their staffs and then let me go a few months later. Caprice. On any given day you could be a genius or a bum, sometimes both. People magazine once called a friend of mine the writer of the best movie in theaters and the worst show on television in the same issue, two pages apart. I had a 12-pound shot put in my stomach when I was working and a 16-pounder when I wasn’t. You would think getting out would be a good thing, and it was, sort of. However, as my friend intimated, you do miss the income. Also, I still don’t feel quite complete about the whole adventure. I reached my primary goal of running shows, but had to take a step back to solve some health issues caused by an unhealthy relationship to stress. I’ve learned a lot

since then and would love another crack at show running. With the explosion of new platforms and delivery systems for entertainment, and the industry’s increasing shift toward an entrepreneurial business model, I like my chances. I also miss my writer friends. Being on a writing staff often means long hours cooped up with people you might not ordinarily befriend, but cannot escape. It’s an intense, insular shared experience that could be claustrophobic, like serving on a submarine, but could also form strong bonds. I have been lucky enough to have three extended “you had to be there” experiences. In boarding school, we united against the common enemy of an oppressive authoritarian environment. Stand-up was a little different. We tended not to be joiners, skewing more toward the disgruntled, live-in-your-mom’sbasement, “If the world would just listen to me, we’d all be better off” type. But we were united by a shared passion for an incredibly difficult art form. We also spent years doing the same kinds of gigs and dealing with the same kinds of audiences. Even when we didn’t work together, we were living parallel lives. And only we knew what it was like to be on that stage. Television writing combined both. The common enemy was time, and you could only understand being on a staff if you had been on one. But TV writing is also creativity under pressure. I spent years among continued next page

Praise for South Portland emergency response We wish to express our sincere appreciation to the South Portland Fire and Rescue Department, the South Portland Police Department and the owner and staff of Docks Seafood Restaurant in South Portland. On Monday evening, Aug. 27, when we were dining at Docks with our friends, the husband had a massive heart attack. The efforts and professionalism shown by all who responded and made every effort to resuscitate him was the epitome of a well-trained and sensitive team. We know they did all that was humanly possible to come out with positive results, but it wasn't meant to be. The citizens of South Portland should take comfort in knowing how great these responders are prepared in such events. Dick and Adele Aronson Falmouth

from previous page people with a breathtaking spectrum of talents (and, often, a similar array of dysfunctions, but that is another story). With the clock always ticking – one of my bosses said it was like being trapped on a railroad track trying to stay ahead of the train – it’s an act of faith to say, “Stop, we can do better here,” but people did. Sometimes the results were great, sometimes barely good enough. The process could be torture or magic. For me it was uniquely engrossing and a privilege to participate. I hope to again. So Sherry, if you’re reading this, yeah, I do kind of miss it. Portland resident Mike Langworthy, an attorney, former stand-up comic and longtime television writer, is fascinated by all things Maine.

King in a landslide You’ve got to hand it to Republicans. They can’t govern their way out of a paper bag, but they sure are masters of dirty tricks. It’s just amazing how often GOP campaign strategists have resorted to underhanded techniques. Let’s see, there was the swift-boating of John Kerry, a successful effort by a bunch of draft dodgers to make a combat veteran out to be a fraud. Worked so well they also pulled it on The Universal one of their own – John McCain. Lately, we’ve seen how Republicans have tried to suppress the vote in order to keep minorities and the young from voting. Didn’t work in Maine, but it has elsewhere. Now we’ve got Republican moneybags playing “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” game, airing ads that pretend to support DemEdgar Allen Beem ocratic U.S. Senate candidate Cynthia Dill in hopes that Dill can take enough votes away from independent former Gov. Angus King for Republican Secretary of State Charlie Summers to pull a LePage and eke out a narrow, unpopular win. Ain’t gonna happen, boys. Angus King has had hundreds of thousands of outof-state dollars thrown at defeating him by groups like the U.S. Chamber of Horrors, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and a Trojan horse group calling itself Maine Freedom, but he is still going to win by a landslide. Here’s why. First, Maine people don’t much care for carpetbaggers and outside agitators. The out-of-state attacks on him are very apt to backfire in his favor. Mainers of both parties understand that Maine freedom means we need to get Super-PAC soft money out of our elections. Then there are the undeniable facts that Angus King is 1) enormously popular and 2) the best qualified candidate in the U.S. Senate race. As a liberal Democrat, I probably share most of Cynthia Dill’s views on the issues, but just because I agree with her doesn’t mean I think she is qualified to serve in the U.S. Senate. Cynthia Dill and Charlie Summers, in fact, strike me as a perfectly matched pair of politicians with more ambition than leadership

experience. To be fair, of course, that’s how I felt about Barack Obama when he announced for president. Dill served two years on the Cape Elizabeth Town Council before getting elected to the Maine House in 2006. In 2011, she won a special Maine Senate election, then promptly announced she was going to run for U.S. Senate. Hey, not so fast, Cynthia. Summers served in the Maine Senate back in the 1990s, then worked as an aide to Sen. Olympia Snowe from 1995 to 2004, recently demonstrating his lack of loyalty by refusing to endorse Snowe’s re-election in 2012. When she announced that she would not run again, he threw his own hat in the ring. Summers lost bids to get into the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994, 2004 and 2008 and then got appointed New England director of the Small Business Association, a position traditionally reserved for rewarding losers. In 2010, the Republican-controlled state Legislature elected him Secretary of State, a position he has refused to yield even, though he will essentially be overseeing a November election in which he is a candidate. Yarmouth Town Council Chairman Steve Woods tells me his business experience makes him a more qualified independent candidate than Angus King, but no one has ever gone straight from the town council to the U.S. Senate and probably never will. Woods needs to pay his electoral dues. And anyway, if success in business qualified one to govern, Paul LePage wouldn’t be such an awful governor. There are a couple of other guys in the U.S. Senate race, but they, too, are just tilting at windmills. Angus King will win because 1) he has a track record of being able to work collaboratively to solve problems, 2) his independent status will be an asset both in the election and in the senate, and 3) he is on a first-name basis with the Maine people. My prediction? Angus will garner somewhere around 50 percent of the vote. Charlie Summers may get as much as 30 percent. Cynthia Dill will be lucky to get out of the teens. And the other three candidates will eat the single-digit crumbs. Just keep pumping those big bucks into Maine media, boys. The outcome is not in doubt, but if you’re determined to waste obscene amounts of ill-gotten gain, the Maine economy can use your excess. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Obituaries Milton F. Farnsworth, 93: Man of service, many talents CAPE ELIZABETH — Milton F. Farnsworth, 93, of Cape Elizabeth, died Sept. 13 at the Maine Veterans Home in Scarborough. He was born in Jonesport on Nov. 3, 1918, to Clara Dunning and Lester Farnsworth. Farnsworth graduated from Jonesport High School in 1936 and joined the Civilian Conservation Corps at Fort Williams. He received his pilot's license in 1939 and was a pilot for the Civil Air Patrol. During World War II he enlisted in the U.S. Marines Corps and served from 1943 to 1947. Upon his discharge, he became the service manager for Pine Motors. He then worked for Verrier Construction and Seaboard Engineering as captain of a 112-foot seagoing tugboat. He also performed hard-hat and scuba diving for underwater demolition. He rescued several men from the sea, and was awarded commendations from the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Farnsworth also worked for Commercial Welding for 17 years. While there, he helped dredge Portland Harbor and build Marine East Marina. Upon retirement, he started his own business, P&M Repair. Farnsworth received a 50-year pin from his Masonic Lodge, and was an active member of Kora Temple. He was predeceased by his son, Dale Farnsworth, earlier this year. He is survived by his wife, Peggy; two children, Clarence Farnsworth and Paula Anton; three step-children, Holly Ready, Lydia Webber and Ted Gilfillan; grandchildren Mike, Elaine, Michelle,

Kenny, Steve, Danny, Kathy and Kim; four step-grandchildren, John, Brendan, Wendy and Christian; and 13 greatgrandchildren. A memorial service was held Sept. 20 at the Cape Elizabeth Church of the Nazarene. Arrangements are by the Hobbs Funeral Home in South Portland.

Local teams hit their stride (Ed. Note: For the complete Cape Elizabeth-Yarmouth and Scarborough-Cheverus boys’ soccer and Scarborough-Cheverus girls’ soccer game stories, please visit theforecaster. net) By Michael Hoffer The fall sports season has benefited from wonderful weather, which, along with stellar local athletes, has made for a most entertaining time for area fans. Several teams are already closing in on the midway point and here’s a glimpse at what you may have missed and what’s to come.

Boys’ soccer Scarborough and South Portland’s boys’ soccer teams remained undefeated at press time. The Red Storm held off visiting Cheverus, 3-1, last Thursday, then improved to 4-0-2 Tuesday with a 3-1 victory at Kennebunk. Against the Stags, Dan Ornstein scored on a rebound for a quick lead, but Cheverus rallied to tie. In the 29th minute, Wyatt Omsberg was held in the box, leading to a penalty kick, and Omsberg buried it, putting Scarborough ahead to stay. A second half goal from Charlie Mader iced it. “The first half, we didn’t play our best,” said Omsberg. “The second half, I think we kept the ball more and played our game. We tried to transition the ball better. It’s nice to play a good second half after playing a weak first half.” “We just settled down a little bit in the second half,” said Red Storm coach Mark Diaz. “We just tried to do too much, too

fast. We slowed down. I got people to stay in their positions. One of our drawbacks is that we take off too quick. Patience is what we’re working on right now. We were patient in the second half. That’s how we envision playing soccer. We took our time and switched the point of attack. We had more chances. I was happy overall with our second half.” In the win over the Rams, Austin Downing scored twice and Trevor Sparda had a goal and two assists. Scarborough (first in the latest Western Class A Heal Points standings) was home against Bonny Eagle Thursday and goes to Deering Tuesday. The Red Riots improved to 5-0-1 with recent wins over host Sanford (3-0) and visiting Deering (2-0). Dillon Burns, Damjan Draskovic and Adam Helmke had goals against the Spartans. Robert Graff and Ryan Pelletier scored in the win over the Rams. South Portland (fifth in Western A) was at defending state champion Windham Thursday and hosts Kennebunk Monday. Cape Elizabeth fell to 1-3-1 Saturday after a 2-1 home loss to Yarmouth. The Capers took the lead early on a sensational 35-yard free kick by Griffin Thoreck. The Clippers tied the game before halftime, then won it in the second half, beating Cape Elizabeth for the second time in a week. “We played a little bit better than last week,” Capers coach Ben Raymond said. “The game was pretty darn even. Each team had chances. That’s what we come to expect. Things are

definitely coming along. We’re learning what we’re good at and what we’re not good at. The kids are figuring out when to put the ball where. When to possess. We can’t just program it for them. It doesn’t work that way. They have to be able to read situations. It’s just playing more and getting them more time together as a group.” Cape Elizabeth (10th in Western A) hosts Greely Friday night. continued next page

Another impressive triumph for Scarborough football Cape earns first win By Michael Hoffer Scarborough’s football team made another impressive statement last Friday night, downing visiting Windham, 27-12, in a battle of unbeatens to improve to 3-0 on the season. The Red Storm, coming off wins over Kennebunk and Bonny Eagle, came out sizzling, taking a 15-0 lead on two long touchdown passes from quarterback Dillon Russo to Greg Viola. Windham, which had beaten South Portland and Noble to start the year, pulled within 15-6 at halftime, but

with the game still in the balance in the fourth quarter, Charlie Raybine returned an intercepted pass for a TD for some breathing room. After the Eagles got back within 21-12, a touchdown run from Dan LeClair sealed it. “I am really proud of how our team played against and very talented and well coached Windham team,” said Scarborough coach Lance Johnson. “The defense was sound and did not give Windham’s explosive offense any big plays. Offensively we were able to move the ball and make some explosive plays with Dillon and Greg. We hurt ourselves repeatedly with penalties and must improve on that.”

Russo finished 9-of-19 for 198 yards with two scores through the air and rushed 11 times for 132 yards. Viola caught two balls, both for TDs, good for 95 yards. LeClair rushed 11 times for 47 yards and a score. He also caught three passes for 53 yards. Defensively, Raybine had two interceptions and seven tackles, Russo seven tackles and an interception and Nik Pelletier made 13 tackles. Scarborough hopes to improve to 4-0 Friday night when it plays at 0-3 Deering, a proud program desperate for a win. Last fall, the Red Storm lost at home to the Rams, 14-7. Scarborough has never defeated Deering in three previous meetings.

“This week we face what will be a hungry Deering team looking for its first win” said Johnson. “They are talented on offense at tight end, wide receiver and running back. We must be ready to match their intensity. They are sound on defense and should be a big challenge for us.”

Elsewhere in Western A, South Portland fell to 0-3 with a 42-0 home loss to two-time defending state champion Cheverus. It was the Stags’ 27th successive victory, four shy of the state record set by the Red Riots in the 1990s, when John Wolfgram coached the program (he’s now the coach of Cheverus).

Local teams from page 15

“If there’s any team we need to stay ahead of, it’s Greely,” Raymond said. “We compete for one or two (playoff) spots.” The Capers go to Lake Region Monday. In Western D, Greater Portland Christian School was 4-1 and eighth in the Heals after recent wins over visiting Highview Christian (11-1), Islesboro (3-2) and Rangeley (2-0). Against Highview, the Lions were paced by four goals from Ethan Spaulding. Eddie Daigneault, Jeremiah Hammond and Eric Pearson all had two. The win over Islesboro came in double overtime when Ryan Waugh scored (from Daigneault). Teddy Lane scored twice. Against the Lakers, Byeong Woo “Jam” Jung had his first varsity goal and Lane also scored. James Perkins made four saves. GPCS goes to A.R. Gould Friday and Chop Point Monday.

Girls’ soccer

Scarborough’s girls’ soccer team remains unbeaten and unscored upon. The Red Storm is now 6-0 and second to Windham in the Western A Heals after blanking visiting Portland (3-0), host Cheverus (3-0) and visiting Kennebunk (5-0). Against the Bulldogs, Jess Meader had two goals and Sarah Martens one. The tandem then helped produce the first goal against the Stags. Meader was OPEN WEEKENDS 11AM-6PM

fouled in the box and had to leave the game with an injury. Martens then buried a penalty kick to put Scarborough ahead to stay. In the second half, Ashley Gleason and Hadlee Yescott scored to allow the Red Storm to pull away. “Once we get our momentum going, we go strong all the way,” Martens said. “We work so well together. We work so hard to keep it going. It feels good to know we can go away from our home field and hold on to the game and possess the ball and win on a grass field.” “It was a good job of us gutting out a win,” said Scarborough coach Mike Farley. “It was a good, physical game. It always is against Cheverus. We started to move the ball better in the second half. Their pressure got to us in the first half and we were defending. The second half was better, settling the ball, quick touches and out.” While the three goals were great, the Scarborough defensive effort is what lingered most. “If one player steps, the other drops behind,” Maria Philbrick said. “I think we handled it well. It’s just a mentality for us. Play the best defense we can. We take a lot of pride in defense. If we do our job, it’s worth it.” Against the Rams, Taylor LeBorgne scored twice, while Meader, Kate Daniels and Sam Sparda also tickled the twine. The Red Storm is home with Deering Tuesday, then plays at Thornton Academy next Thursday before hosting Windham two days later. After losing in last year’s state game, Scarborough once more has its eye on the biggest prize. “We still have big games coming up, but I’m excited,” Philbrick said. “Last year was really irritating. I think we’re ready. We want revenge for last year. That drives us.” “We still have huge games,” Farley said. “TA and Windham, I think, are two of the best teams in the league. I’d

put Gorham and Cheverus up there too. We don’t play Sanford, but they’ll be good. We have huge tests. We want to be consistent and want to play well for the playoffs and be hitting on the same cylinder.” South Portland, which started 0-3 is now 2-4 after sandwiching wins over visiting Westbrook (2-1, in overtime) and host McAuley (4-3) around a 3-1 home loss to Sanford. Ericka Lightner and Emma Dennison had the goals against the Blue Blazes. Abby Letourneau had a goal in the loss. In the win over the Lions, Lightner scored three times, Jenna Wing scored as well and goalkeeper Emma Russell made 11 saves. The Red Riots were home with Windham Thursday, go to Deering Saturday and visit Kennebunk Tuesday. Cape Elizabeth sits third in Western A with a 5-1 mark following wins over visiting Wells (6-0) and host Yarmouth (2-1, in overtime). Against the Warriors, Kathryn Clark had a pair of goals. Katherine Breed, Katherine Briggs, Natalie Vaughn and Sydney Wight also scored. In the win over the Clippers, Briggs scored on a penalty kick and Talley Perkins won it. The Capers are at Greely Friday as they look to extend their win streak to six games. Monday, they host Lake Region. In Western D, GPCS is 0-4 and sixth in the Heals after a 9-0 home loss to Rangeley Tuesday. The Lions are home against Richmond Monday.

Field hockey Scarborough’s undefeated field hockey team was primed for a battle at unblemished Cheverus with the top spot in the Western A Heals at stake Wednesday, but poor field conditions postponed the game to Friday (please see theforecaster.net for game story). The Red Storm was coming off shutout wins at Sanford (1-0), at home over Marshwood (1-0) and at South Portland (4-0). Sarah Huber had the goal against the Spartans. Emily Bunting had

the lone goal versus the Hawks. Maddie Dobecki had two goals and Huber and Katie Granzier one each against the Red Riots. Scarborough (second in the Heals as of Wednesday morning) plays at Gorham Tuesday. South Portland was 1-6 and 14th in Western A entering Wednesday’s home contest with McAuley. The Red Riots were coming off losses to host Kennebunk (1-0), host Gorham (2-1, in overtime) and visiting Scarborough (4-0). Courtney Pelkey scored in the overtime loss and goalie Lani Edwards made 13 saves. Edwards stopped 10 shots versus the Red Storm. South Portland is at Cheverus Tuesday. Cape Elizabeth blanked visiting Traip, 6-0, and lost in overtime, 3-2, at Lake Region last week. Hailey Petsinger scored twice and Jane Coffrin, Abby McInerney, Aubrey O’Meara and Lauren Steidl all had one goal in the victory. Against the Lakers, McInerney and Petsinger scored. The Capers (3-3 and ninth in Western B) were at Greely Thursday, go to Fryeburg Saturday and play at reigning regional champion York Monday.

Cross country

South Portland’s cross country teams hosted Gorham and Kennebunk last weekend. The girls came in first as Nyajock Pan had the top individual time (16 minutes, 41 seconds). The boys were a close second to Gorham. Max Knutsen was first individually in 14:58. Scarborough joined Portland at Marshwood, where the defending Class A champion boys were first and the girls came in third. Individually, Jack Sullivan came in third in the boys’ race (19:09) and Laura Volan was second on the girls’ side (24:11). Cape Elizabeth joined Merriconeag and Poland at York, where each team was triumphant. The boys were led by Peter Doane (second, 17:19). The girls’ race saw Ellen Best place second (21:43). continued page 18

Football from page 15 for a half. After a scoreless first quarter, the Stags got a couple touchdowns in the second for a 14-0 lead at the break. The visitors then broke it open in the third quarter with 20 points and went on to a fourth straight win over the Red Riots. South Portland hopes for its first win Friday when it visits 1-2 Kennebunk. The Red Riots defeated the visiting Rams a year ago, 35-7. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth got in the win column for the first time, 28-0,

over Lake Region. The 1-2 Capers play at 0-3 Falmouth Friday night as they look to balance their record. Last year, Cape Elizabeth handled the visiting Yachtsmen, 28-6.

Police: Suspects stole IDs, drained bank accounts, read The Forecaster By Christopher Williams Sun Journal

LEWISTON — A man and a woman making their way down the Eastern Seaboard are draining bank accounts by stealing identities and bank information from motor vehicles, police said. Authorities in New Jersey traced the suspects to Maine after seeing the front page of The Forecaster weekly newspaper the male driver was reading while waiting at a bank drive-through. The Forecaster is owned by the Sun Media Group, which also publishes the daily Sun Journal in Lewiston. The duo started in Lewiston at the end of August and recently made their way to New Jersey. On Aug. 28, Lewiston police responded to two motor vehicle burglaries where windows were broken and purses stolen, Detective Lee Jones said Friday. The male suspect used the two victims' identifications and bank account information two days later at mid-morning to withdraw $3,000 in cash at the drivethrough teller window at a bank, which wasn't identified by police. A female passenger claimed to be the account owner,

Jones said. On Aug. 30, Lisbon police responded to a parking lot at a local walking trail for a motor vehicle burglary. The window of the vehicle had been broken and the female victim's Bank of America checkbook was missing. She reported the theft, but police later discovered the thief had used information

from her checking account and driver's license the same day to withdraw $2,000 from her account at an Exeter, N.H., Bank of America branch, Jones said. Photos from bank surveillance cameras from both withdrawals show the suspects in the same car, described as a white, four-door Nissan Altima sedan with Pennsylvania registration. No registration number was observed. The man is described as white with a

Two women were seen in the male suspect's car, but no identification was available for them, police said.

Fall Home Improvement

Renovating a kitchen is a great way to increase the value and also the functionality of a home. The National Kitchen & Bath Association’s latest market report says that, in the first three months of 2012, the number of homeowners who started a kitchen renovation was up more than 50 percent from the previous quarter. A kitchen is a central gathering place and is one of the most popular family gathering spots in the house. With traditional dining rooms being eliminated in favor of open, eat-in kitchens and entertaining spaces, more attention than ever is now placed on a well-designed kitchen. The average remodeling budget for a kitchen renovation exceeds $30,000. But there are ways to keep budgets in check. • Do some of the work yourself to reduce money spent on labor costs. • Consider laminate flooring and counters, which will look like real stone but at a fraction of the cost. • Skip custom cabinetry in lieu of stock units. They’re more attractive than ever before and don’t require the wait time of custom-ordered cabinets.

• Choose less expensive, mid-range appliances that may function better than or equal to high-end models. • Plan layout accurately and spend time reviewing your designs. Late changes in a remodel can quickly eat up a budget.

The pact comes after Gov. Paul LePage highlighted what he describes as a skills gap between what Maine employers say they need and what the state’s workers have for training. There are currently 68 students in SMCC’s hospitality management program, the school’s president said. Those students are given hands-on experience helping operate the community college’s on-campus Peter A. McKernan Hospitality Center, a 1902 former Fort Preble officers’ quarters building now converted into a small seaside hotel, or through other industry partnerships in the region.

“We are very proud today that these two institutions are making it more possible to give more students opportunities to earn an affordable, high-quality education, and support a major industry important to the future of Maine.� Carolann Ouellette, director of the Maine Office of Tourism, said the SMCC-USM announcement is welcome news to leaders in her industry. “I know our industry has been hoping that this type of thing would come along, and the timing is perfect,� she said Monday. The articulation agreement unveiled Monday is one of 50 such deals SMCC has arranged with public and private universities in New England, Cantor said. Earlier this month, the community college announced a collaborative program alongside the University of Maine at Farmington, in which students in SMCC’s early childhood development program could take satellite UMF classes in South Portland to finish off a four-year degree. That arrangement creates southern Maine’s first four-year early childhood education program in several years, SMCC officials said.

At Kaler Elementary School, children are led through four hours of daily lessons and activities by teacher Millissa Wlodylo and educational technician Patty Brooks. "A lot of the skills we are doing here, they are doing in kindergarten," Wlodylo said about the Opening the World of Learning program, known as OWL. "They are going to be exhausted at the end of the day," she said. "We will be, too." Wlodylo said the program encourages early literacy, enhances socialization skills and requires parental involvement. The sessions are split into group and individual play and learning periods, with group activities lasting no more than 15 minutes. Wlodylo and Brooks bring experience

Sections of sidewalk have been widened, greenery has been planted and new street lights are being erected. The work is expected to be completed early next month. The city's share of the $3.12 million project is about $2.7 million. Reporter David Harry contributed to this report. Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ theforecaster.net.

in Head Start and other early learning programs to the classroom. Each said they had been surprised and pleased to learn they would work together after meeting during training on the OWL program. The expanded program at Kaler is funded through a $125,000 grant from the Portland-based Great Bay Foundation. Grant funding expires next year, and School Superintendent Suzanne Godin said earlier this summer the district would look to pay for the program using savings from other department operations. The preschool program targets children from lower-income families, based in part on eligibility for subsidized lunches. There is room for 16 students in the Kaler program – 12 for children who live in the area and four open-enrollment spots. Wlodylo and Brooks visited children at home and hosted an open house before

classes began. Those touches were appreciated by parents, who said it helped make their children more comfortable getting on the bus. "It was a bit different, but I thought it was great," Shawn McGillicuddy said. "They even took (Brendan's) photo. I thought that was fantastic." Jennnifer Kinney Brown enrolled her daughter, Maggie, and said Maggie was eager to get to school. "She's loving it," Brown said, noting that having her three older children in preschool programs produced benefits when they began kindergarten. "They weren't learning to sit in a classroom, they were learning school work," she said. Tina Owen brought her son, Kaden, to school. While waiting for the bus to arrive, Kaden made friends with Jack Ferger, the first preschooler to arrive. "We are new to the area," Owen said as the boys played in the sunshine. "It's good for him to learn and be a little independent. He's ready." David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @ DavidHarry8.

thing, we’ve been waiting and waiting,” resident Denise Fogg said. Olore said it is exciting to see the residents get so involved in the process. “For us this is a really important piece because it’s something that really resonates with them and inspires them and

allows them to have something that they enjoy every day,” she said. Schrock said that residents watching her do her work is the most exciting thing about the whole project. “I think the biggest part that impacts me is the human connection,” she said.

“To me that’s the most rewarding and moving thing. I just make art, I know how to do that and this is an opportunity for me to utilize that and make a difference.”

Scarborough Land Trust. An additional 11 acres of wetland and upland will be protected with a conservation easement held by the trust to compensate for the impact on wetlands from the Wentworth Intermediate School construction project. Town officials worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Maine Department of Environmental Protection in the permitting process and developed the

arrangement to permanently protect the town-owned land adjacent to the Wiley athletic fields. The 11-acre area will remain under town ownership, but development will be restricted and the land will be stewarded by the land trust.
