S.P. City Council ready to regulate ‘nuisance’ properties


Pauline Garner, left, and Eleanor Irving continue a 65-year friendship at Scarborough Terrace. The two first met in Kezar Falls, a village 35 miles west. Garner now lives at the assisted living center, while Irving enjoys temporary stays called respite care.

‘A lifetime affair’

A 65-year friendship continues in Scarborough By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — Pauline Garner and Eleanor Irving are a long way in miles and years from Kezar Falls, the small village where they met 65 years ago. Bu the two have reunited at Scarborough Terrace, the assisted living center that is Garner’s permanent home and Irving enjoys for temporary respite care.

“You can pick up just where you left off,” Garner said about their visits, but just where they left off covers decades. Garner, 86, was born north of Kezar Falls in Brownfield in Oxford County. Her father was a physician, who moved his family to the town at the outset of World War II. Kezar Falls exists on vintage road maps, set in what

is now portions of Porter and Parsonsfield on the Ossippee River, about five miles from New Hampshire. Shortly after World War II, Irving and her late husband, Clifford Irving, moved there when he took a job with the phone company in neighboring Cornish. “He asked if I wanted See page 30

By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — City councilors agreed this week to place an ordinance revision on their Oct. 1 meeting agenda to allow legal action against property owners who refuse to clean up “nuisance” properties. Drafted by city corporate counsel Sally Daggett and Code Enforcement Officer Patricia Doucette, the amendment to Chapter 16 of city ordinances covering public nuisances allows municipal department heads or at least 10 taxpaying property owners who live within

500 feet of a property to petition the council to declare a property a public nuisance. When a request or petition is received, councilors would hold a public hearing to discuss possible safety, public health or environmental hazards on the property, and could order the owners to abate the problems within 15 days. Violators who ignore the abatement order could face fines from $100 to $2,500 per day under Maine laws. See page 30

Utility: No negligence in broken water mains By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — The Portland Water District supervisor who investigated nine broken water mains in the city since the end of last month on Monday reported the causes remain unclear in six of the episodes. “I am unable to determine the direct cause of the majority of these leaks,” James Wallace said. “There appears to be no negligence on the part of the District that contributed to any of these leaks.” Wallace, who oversees district plant and systems operations, is-

sued his report to PWD General Manager Ronald Miller. Causes of three breaks were determined by Wallace. He attributed an Aug. 28 break to fire hydrant use on High Street. A Sept. 12 break at 59 Main St. and one on Sept. 13 on Evans Street were attributed to excavation work by Public Works crews from the city and New England Utility Contractors. The report details a wide span of ages in the broken mains, with the cast iron High Street See page 31

Landmarks advocates list Portland, South Portland ‘Places in Peril’ By William Hall PORTLAND — From an island in Portland Harbor to a stop on the Underground Railroad, seven historic area sites “are in danger of being irreparably altered or destroyed,” preservation advocacy group Greater Portland Landmarks said Sept. 20. “These properties help define greater Portland. In every case, the properties we’ve identified are prominently visible or have such historic significance Index Arts Calendar ................22 Classifieds .....................26 Community Calendar.....23 Meetings ........................23

that we must advocate for their protection and preservation,” GPL Executive Director Hilary Bassett said. The group named the following properties to its first “Places in Peril” list: • The Portland Company Complex, 58 Fore St., Portland. The complex is the only “relatively intact” 19th-century industrial site on Portland’s waterfront, according to GPL. Currently owned by Portland Yacht Services, the

seven-building site is for sale. • House Island, Portland Harbor. This 24-acre island, two miles off the Portland coast, is home to a military fort built in 1808 and an immigrant quarantine station used in the early 1900s. The island is for sale. • Portland Masonic Temple, 415 Congress St., Portland. More than 100 years old, the Beaux-Arts-style temple

By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — Less than a month after winning the contract, Gorham-based R.J. Grondin & Sons has started overhauling the Dunstan Corner intersections of Route 1 and Broadturn, Pine Point and Payne roads. Work began Monday on a $2.7 million project to extend the southbound left turn lane on Route 1 to Pine Point Road, reconfigure the way Broadturn and Pine Point roads converge at Route 1, and shift the entrance from Route 1 to Payne Road north from the current intersection. Maine Department of Transportation spokesman Ted Talbot said both lanes of northbound Route 1 will be open

weekdays from 6-9 a.m., and the Route 1 southbound lanes will be open weekdays from 3-6 p.m. Otherwise, traffic in both directions will be reduced to one lane on weekdays and weekends. Most work will be done during daytime. Some paving and other jobs will be done from 6 p.m.-6 a.m. Mondays through Thursdays, with “an occasional Sunday,” Talbot said. The first phase of work on Route 1 will occur through next month, and remaining work on the intersecting roads will be completed next spring and in early summer, Talbot said. Drivers should not expect delays from preliminary work on a three-quarter-mile

stretch of Cummings Road from Running Hill Road in South Portland to the Westbrook city line, Talbot said. The work to clear brush and improve drainage, however, comes in advance of a large-scale reconstruction project scheduled to begin when weather permits next spring. The road surface will be completely removed and reconstructed, which will cause delays. Heavy traffic volume requires the extensive work, Talbot said. “The best way to do it is a full reconstruction,” he said.

Among items stolen in the thefts near the Southern Maine Community College campus are a handgun and badge owned by a sheriff’s deputy, according to Detective Sgt. Steven Webster. Webster said the thefts from several vehicles occurred early in the morning. A suspect attempted to use a credit card taken from one of the vehicles at an ATM on Commercial Street in Portland around 5:20 a.m. that day. A “person of interest” was questioned and released Saturday by Portland police, Webster said. Anyone who can assist in the investigation is asked to call 874-8575.

Scarborough man charged in decade-old case

SCARBOROUGH — A five-month investigation into an alleged decade-old offense has resulted in two charges against a Scarborough man. Gorham Police Detective Sgt. Dana Thompson said David Dougherty, 45, turned himself in to police around 3:45 p.m. Monday. Dougherty was charged with two counts of Class C unlawful sexual contact for alleged incidents at Wassamski Springs Campground in the summer of 2002. Thompson said the male victim was not yet 12 at the time of the alleged incidents and reported them to police last April. Dougherty was taken to Cumberland County Jail in Portland and released on $2,500 bail with conditions prohibiting contact with the victim and allowing random searches for sexually explicit materials. He is scheduled to appear in Cumberland County Unified Criminal Docket in Portland on Nov. 14.

New Scarborough Marsh deck opens Saturday SCARBOROUGH — A former antenna testing tower overlooking Scarborough Marsh gets new life as an observation deck when it opens Saturday at 53 Manson Libby Road. A celebration of the opening is planned from 10 a.m. to noon by Friends of Scarborough Marsh, Maine Audubon’s Scarborough Marsh Nature Center and the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. The tower, on land bought from the Gervais family by the department in 2009, offers multi-story views of the marsh. Representatives from the organizations will be part of an open house detailing features of the new property, marsh ecology and the habitats provided by the marsh.

Immigrants seen as vital part of Maine economic growth By Marena Blanchard PORTLAND — After a Brown University study recently showed Maine is one of the most racially homogenous states in the nation, representatives of businesses, faith communities, and cultural organizations met last Saturday to discuss ways the state can attract skilled workers and entrepreneurial talent for economic growth, with particular emphasis on immigration. Most of those present at the meeting Sept. 22 at the Wishcamper Center on the University of Southern Maine campus were members of the Maine Global Institute’s advisory board and are connected to Maine’s multicultural populations. “The greatest investment we can make is in human capital,” Ralph Carmona, MGI executive director, said. He went on to state that educated immigrants would add value to the job market. This was the first open planning session for the organization. Topics

Comment on this story at:

discussed were broad and included the concept of diversity as wealth, the inherent complexity of culture, avoiding internalization of negative rhetoric, and the need for open-mindedness in both the Maine-born and incoming immigrant populations. The Brown study categorized populations into five groups: non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic blacks, nonHispanic asians and pacific islanders, hispanics of any race, and an “other” classification comprised of non-Hispanic Native Americans, members of other races and multi-racial persons. While there was an absolute statistical change in Maine over a period of 30 years, according to the study, the pace of that change was much slower relative to the rest of the country, and slower than comparable metropolitan and rural areas.

Portland, Lewiston, and Bangor were ranked among the 25 least diverse cities in America. Among the key findings of the study were factors correlated to diversity, including “large total and foreign-born populations; high rental occupancy, as a community needs a supply of rental housing to accommodate newcomers; a range of occupational options, including entry-level jobs; and a low minority-to-

white income ratio.” MGI, which focuses on local, regional, state, and federal efforts in the public and private sectors to address all forms of domestic and foreign migration, hopes to work toward a Maine that is a more welcoming place for “inevitable demographic change.” MGI’s literature outlines immediate goals, including cultivating coalitions, continued page 32

Cape Elizabeth referendums: Charter change, $6M for library By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — Voters in November will decide whether to borrow $6 million for a new library, and if the Town Charter should be amended.

need to raise about $1.5 million privately to fully fund the project, putting the total estimated project cost at about $7.5 million. The existing Thomas Memorial Library, on Scott Dyer Road, is a series of old buildings that started as a one-room school house built in 1849. Since then, it has moved three times and had five additions. Inside, the library's disjointed adult and children sections both lack bathrooms on the upper levels. The building also lacks storage space for books and other materials, and currently uses the boiler room, sprinkler room and a closet attached to the children's room as makeshift storage units.

It is also not accessible to people in wheelchairs. The library averages 1,600 visits per week and is the 10th busiest library in Maine for inter-library loans, according to the Committee for the Thomas Memorial Library. The library bond also played a role in the proposed amendment to the Town Charter that is on the Nov. 6 ballot. Residents raised concerns during the bond discussion about how much money the council can decide to spend without a public vote. The proposal came out of that and would amend the charter to require any single capital expenditure that exceeds $1 million to automatically trigger a public referendum. Under the existing charter, residents have to petition the Town Council to get a referendum for any large, single expenditure. Funding packages that exceed $1 million, but are made up of multiple projects that individually total less than $1 million, would not be subject to the referendum under the proposed charter amendment. The referendum would not apply to state and federally mandated projects, or any improvements required due to fire or other catastrophe. Voting on Election Day will be conducted from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. at Cape Elizabeth High School. Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or Follow him on Twitter: @W_C_Graff.

No contest for Cape Elizabeth Town Council candidates By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — Barring a successful write-in campaign, two incumbents and a first-time candidate will be elected to the Town Council on Nov. 6. Councilors Jim Walsh and Jessica Sullivan are seeking re-election for their second terms on the council after first being elected in 2009. Local coffee shop owner Jamie Wagner is the third candidate on the ballot for the three, three-year positions. Council Chairwoman Sara Lennon is not seeking re-election.

Jamie Wagner This is Wagner’s first campaign for elected office. He is the co-owner of the Local Buzz Coffee Shop & Wine Bar on Ocean House Road and moved to Cape Elizabeth about 5 1/2 years ago from Washington D.C., although he was born and raised in Maine. He has two children. Wagner said he has been involved in politics since he was a child, watching his father as a state representative, and thinks his career as a lawyer positions him well for town government. Particularly, he said his legal expertise will serve the town well when drafting or

correcting ordinances. One of the changes he said he would like to encourage as a town councilor is to give Cape Elizabeth a more vibrant downtown. “I would like to help make this town a community that gathers together more frequently,” he said, noting that as one of his goals for opening the cafe. “There’s a lot of people in Cape Elizabeth that are hungry for businesses that are lacking here.” Public space is also important, said Wagner, who applauded the work of the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust in preserving public lands. In the same vain, as a councilor he said he would like to maintain public access to Crescent Beach State Park and work to see if there is anything the council can do to facilitate discussion to preserve the land.

Jim Walsh Walsh is a broker with Weichert Realtors-Waterglen Group and works for L.L. Bean. He also was an executive of Stop & Shop Supermarkets in Massachusetts and was a school teacher and administrator. He has lived in Cape Elizabeth for 34 years and has four children. In addition to being the chairman of

the Ordinance Committee, Walsh is the council’s representative to the Greater Portland Council of Governments. Previously, Walsh spent six years on the Zoning Board of Appeals and said he is running again because Sullivan he was motivated by what the council has been able to accomplish. “I like to see things through and stay with them until the’re finished,” he said.”I’m looking forward to giving it another three years, if they’ll have me.” One of the accomplishments he points to is the improvement of the town’s website, which he said has enhanced communication between town government and the citizens, while also making government more accessible. The Thomas Memorial Library is an important issue, he said. Walsh, noting major improvements will still be needed



Jessica Sullivan

Sullivan, the other incumbent, is a licensed physical therapist and former business owner of a medical practice with her husband. Although she has also lived in Texas and Massachusetts, she has lived in Cape Elizabeth for the last 12 years, making her the fifth generation of her family to live in town. Sullivan chairs the Appointments Comcontinued page 31

that poked fun at King’s name (he’s the “King of Spending!,” get it?) But when that didn’t work, conservative bloggers got into the act, attacking King’s wife and obliquely raising questions of marital infidelity in the foulest, most low-rent, and utterly unfounded fashion. Most of us naturally recoil at this kind of sleaze, and some may even channel their outrage into actions supporting the very candidates victimized by hyperpartisan attack. But the sad truth is that many who are less engaged in the political process and less familiar with the candidates themselves may be swayed by the unrelenting onslaughts of sludge. Much of the current problem can be attributed to the Supreme Court’s infamous Citizens United decision, which permits virtually unlimited and anonymous contributions to so-called Super PACs. These organizations and their mutant progeny are not formally affiliated with any candidate, yet they focus on and advocate for issues unmistakably identified with a particular candidate, who, conveniently, enjoys plausible deniability even as the ads go on and on, eviscerating, always anonymously, the candidate’s opponent. I wasn’t born yesterday, and I understand the concepts of free and protected speech, legal status and so on as much as the next guy. But just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should do it. Nor is it coincidence that the most recent targets of anonymous smear jobs are independent candidates without a party infrastructure that supports them directly or fundraises for them through issue advocacy. Cutler and King embody the principle that message trumps party, and that is a very threatening notion. Whether King – or, if he chooses to run again, Cutler – can overcome the onslaught of negative and anonymous sludge remains to be seen. Both individuals have in their favor the fact that here in Maine we live and work close to our candidates. They are our neighbors, our co-workers and, often, our friends. So I’m hoping this election sticks a fork in the eye of sleazy, big-money, anonymous smear-job tactics. I’m hoping that the results of this election and subsequent elections in Maine show the country that the electorate doesn’t have to accept this garbage. I’m hoping that if a candidate or a supporter of another candidate feels strongly about something or someone, he will have enough integrity to own up to it. It really isn’t very difficult.

Say no to discrimination and yes to marriage equality By Russell Anderson When I was 8 years old (circa 1960), my family took a vacation trip to Washington, D.C., and Williamsburg, Va. I have many fond memories of that trip, but the incident that sticks in my mind more than 50 years later is not so fond. We were in a public facility somewhere in Virginia – it may have been a bus station or a visitors center, I can’t recall exactly. I needed to use the bathroom and saw that I had two choices: “Men’s Room White” or “Men’s Room Colored.” Being an innocent and somewhat naive 8-year-old, I thought the distinction referred to the interior decor, and naturally I chose the “colored” option. Why enter a room where everything is a boring white color when I could enjoy what I imagined to be a bright room with multi-colored walls and fixtures? The reality of course was quite different. Not only was the “colored” room not brightly colored and pretty, but it was dull, dirty and generally quite unpleasant. How could the signs be so wrong? After completing my business, I left the “colored” men’s room and immediately complained to my father that the signs were misleading. Whereupon he explained to me that, unfortunately, in the South, black people were still required to use separate bathroom facilities from white people and that the distinction in the signs related not to the interior decor, but to the color of one’s skin. I recall being befuddled by this answer, but I knew in my head and in my heart, even at the young age of 8, that it was just plain wrong to discriminate against a group of people because of who they are. Fast forward to the 1990s. I am now a senior executive with UNUM Life Insurance Co. and have been asked to take a leading role in UNUM’s Diversity Awareness initiative. We organized a series of conversations designed to help all employees better understand the perspectives of various minority groups employed at our company and a part of our community. One of these conversations Comment on this story at:

involved several members of the gay and lesbian community. We asked questions, they offered information, and it was an intense and extremely educational experience about the kind of discrimination that gay people face, and the fear they live with daily. Among other things, we learned that this is not a lifestyle “choice,” but that being gay – or not – is a characteristic we are all born with and is therefore an inherent part of who we are. During this conversation a young woman described her experiences as a gay woman in our society. I will never forget the tears in her eyes, or the pain in her heart, as she described the experience of being completely rejected by her parents and continued next page

work clothes to put into the laundry hamper the morning after my shift, and got a full-on whiff of Charlie Tuna, I knew this career path would not bode well for my dating life.

Seeing them gaining some independence – along with pride and a growing bank account – is a lovely thing. And although I admittedly don’t relish not being able to get into my jammies until midnight (if I’m not getting home until the wee hours, I’d prefer it to be because I was out on a hot date), I do love seeing the look of satisfaction on my child’s face when he proudly displays his paycheck and shares precious tidbits of his life on our late-night rides home. And so long as none of them ask me to drive them to gut fish somewhere at 5 a.m., I’m 100 percent supportive of their ambitions.

Volk brings compassion to the Legislature Two years ago I wrote in support of Amy Volks' election in House District 127. As I feel compelled to write in support of her re-election, I remain typically very private politically. While I have been remarkably impressed with Amys' aggressive legislation and proactive agendas, I feel her human compassion speaks volumes. I, like Amy, am the mother of a now "adult" child living with a significant developmental disability. I am all too aware of the toll this takes on a family. I find huge comfort knowing that Amy understands the challenges that people with mental and physical disabilities experience daily, living in a world that is too often fast-paced and confusing to them. Knowing there is a voice for both myself as well as my son in Augusta lends so much support to her re-election. Karen Fallon Scarborough

Independent Bishop in House District 123 The art of civil discourse, compromising and arriving at solutions that all involved can live with, is increasingly replaced by party dogma and rigid ideology from both sides of the isle. We can reverse this trend. I would like to bring Roger Bishop, the independent candidate in House District 123 to your attention. I have known and worked with Roger for many years. He is a very bright man with profound experience, high integrity and desire to serve. Roger approached often difficult problems with a very balanced view and good listening skills. He articulated good advice to both management and labor representatives and followed through with solutions. He was respected by all for his integrity, his competence, and his reasoned approach of finding acceptable solutions for problems. Such qualities would serve well to help bring back competent, civil and respectful leadership. If you would like to see people with such character represent us, please vote for Roger Bishop.

Scarborough Land Trust thanks community, sponsors On Sept. 10, 160 guests celebrated local organic food and the success of Broadturn Farm at the Scarborough Land Trust's first "Fresh from the Farm Dinner." The sold-out event was held at Broadturn Farm in a beautifully lighted and decorated tent, with local beer, wine, and hors d'overes served in the newly restored English Barn. All produce was harvested from the farm that morning, and roast pork from the farm and organic chicken from

Maine Poultry were served. Proceeds from the event will be used for SLT's Broadturn Farm maintenance fund. SLT volunteer co-Chairwomen Rita Breton and Sue O'Reilly, Broadturn farmers Stacy Brenner and John Bliss, and Leslie Oster of Aurora Provisions organized the event and managed the dozen plus volunteers who worked diligently behind the scenes. This was a community event; we want to publicly thank the generous local companies and hardworking volunteers, without whom the dinner would not have been the success that it was. The dinner was multi-purpose: SLT wanted to highlight the community that has grown around Broadturn Farm, celebrate the tangible and intangible benefits Scarborough derives from the farm, and to thank the citizens of Scarborough for their support that has made this amazing SLT acquisition project a reality. Look for the advertisements next year and sign up early. Paul Austin, president Scarborough Land Trust

Caterina for Scarborough state rep With the upcoming November election approaching, there are decisions to be made. As a 19-year-old student at the University of Maine and Scarborough High School alum, I know the challenge students are facing. College students are facing constantly rising tuition, high school students are watching teachers leave, and students are having to pay more to participate in extra-curricular activities. Scarborough provides incredible opportunities, but over the last two years, the school system is failing. I'm voting for Jean-Marie Caterina to represent Scarborough in the Maine House of Representatives. In high school, Academic Decathlon was one activity that made me who I am today and that's how I know Jean-Marie. Jean-Marie Caterina is a former teacher and a concerned advocate for the Scarborough educational system and I know she's the person to right the ship. Scarborough's teachers and Scarborough students need Jean-Marie Caterina. Please vote for Jean-Marie Caterina on Nov. 6. Seth Albert Scarborough

South Portland rep backs Hamann As term limits prevent me from seeking re-election, I would like to encourage the voters of House District 123 to support Scott Hamann as their new state representative. Scott embodies all the qualities that I would love to see in my representative, and he will make sure that the voices of the citizens of our community are heard in Augusta. Scott is a smart, energetic, principled young man whose commitment to making things better for all of us has led him to pursue public service. Please vote for Scott Hamann for state representative.

most of her family when she told them she was gay. Fast forward one more time to the present. This November, Maine residents will vote on whether to allow gay couples to marry. State ballot Question 1 will remove a remaining form of unjust discrimination against a group of citizens simply because of who they are. Critics say that, if passed, this measure will undermine the institution of marriage and confuse our children. I couldn’t disagree more. At the age of 8, I was confused by the presence of discrimination, and would have fully embraced its elimination. We should be teaching our children tolerance, acceptance of those who are different, and the evils of discrimination. As far as the institution of marriage, well, I have been married for 34 years and I know this will not weaken my marriage. With 50 percent of marriages ending in divorce, and Hollywood celebrities changing spouses almost as often as the seasons change, the institution of marriage does need to be strengthened. And it will be strengthened when we open it up to all loving couples by passing the Marriage Equality referendum this November. Russell Anderson is a Falmouth resident and business consultant.

Right goal, wrong strategy from Beem While I agree with Edgar Allen Beem’s goal of ending hunger, as expressed in his column of Sept. 12, I believe his solution of a tax on meals at restaurants is not necessarily the best approach. People who would give freely if they were aware of Maine’s hunger problem may react negatively when that “giving” is enforced through a tax. Just like Mr. Beem said in his column, “once the people of Maine learn the extent of the problem, they will want to help their hungry neighbors.” What we need to do is make sure that everyone in our communities understands the severity of the situation, and also understands that if they have anything to give, be it time, money, or food, it can make a big difference. There is currently a disconnect between those who are poor hungry, and everyone else. Healing that divide is even more important than just throwing money at the problem. If we can bridge that gap, we will never have to “eat, drink and feel guilty.” We will be able to take joy from every meal, knowing that through the efforts of our communities, no one is going without. Jordan Ossie Portland

Criticism of Beem unwarranted Recently, Mr.Leary, from Higgins Beach and “Away,” wrote a scathing note about Edgar Allen Beem. Leary stated that Ed writes “Nasty, mean-spirited, hate-filled” comments that are “consistently obnoxious.” Just out of curiosity, Mr.Leary, why do you bother to read them? Edgar writes excellent articles for Downeast and Yankee magazines, and has also published wonderful books. It is hard for me to believe that if Mr. Leary travels all over New England, he “has never encountered a columnist as consistently obnoxious as Mr. Beem.” What type of papers do you read, Mr. Leary? My family and I know Edgar from Church. Rain or snow, Ed waits at the street to assist Dad with his wheelchair. His columns are not intended to insult people, just make them think. My folks are pretty open-mined Republicans, respecting changes of the times. Often Mom rolls her eyes about Ed’s writing and laughs, but still thinks the world of him. He is a wonderful man, has a great wife and daughters. Please, Mr. Leary, open up or stop reading Edgar’s column. Phil Caldwell Yarmouth

The rich versus the rest of us Mitt Romney is so out of touch with the lives of everyday Americans that he thinks middle income means people who earn between $200,000 and $250,000. My guess is he is so far off simply because he doesn’t know anyone who earns such a palThe Universal try sum. And he can’t begin to imagine how he and his profligate family could possibly survive on, say, $49,693, the actual median household income in Maine last year.


People who earn $250,000 are in the top 5 percent by income. That’s perfect, because the top 5 Edgar Allen Beem percent is about all Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan plan to represent should hell freeze over and these two apostles of greed descend to the presidency and vice presidency. Richie Romney has hardly worked a day in his life. His wealth now is all unearned income. It’s called unearned because you don’t have to work for it. It’s basically welfare. You just collect it. It’s like winning the lottery, and it should be taxed like lottery winnings. But because the U.S. Congress is a rich man’s club, labor (earned income) in this country is taxed at a higher rate than capital (unearned income). In a just society, it would be just the opposite. The bogus rationale for lower taxes on unearned investment income is that the rich are job creators. But if that were true, given the tax breaks we’ve been giving the wealthy, the U.S. should have an unemployment rate of zero.

money is merit and, therefore, we should lower income taxes on the rich and do away with inheritance taxes and capital gains taxes that punish success resonates with the idle rich. They, like Romney, actually believe that the 47 percent of Americans who do not pay taxes are social leeches who see themselves as victims and think the government owes them a living. Hey, Richie Rich, most of those people are Americans who worked hard all their lives and paid into a Social Security and Medicare system you and your ripped running mate want to gut for fun and profit. The 47 percent you disparage are not the parasites in this country, Mr. Romney, you and your One-Percenter buddies are. I am not personally a member of Romney’s 47 percent. I pay taxes at a higher rate than he does. But, yes, I do regard myself as a victim. If you haven’t figured out since the financial meltdown of 2008 that we are all victims of corporate greed, that Wall Street speculators and unregulated bankers drove the economy over a cliff and took all of us along with them, you are truly beyond hope. And of course that’s just what Romney-Ryan Republicans hope and are banking on – the ignorance of the American people. There aren’t nearly enough smug, self-satisfied country-club conservatives to win a presidential election, but if they spend enough money to persuade enough tea party conservatives, social conservatives, and, oh yes, anti-Obama racists to vote against their own best interests, maybe they can buy this election. On Nov. 6, it really is going to be Romney and the rich against all the rest of us. If you make less than $250,000 a year and you vote for Romney, you are indeed a victim. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth. The Universal Notebook is his personal, weekly look at the world around him.

The rich are not job creators. They also do not work harder than the rest of us. They are just more fortunate. But the Romney-Ryan message that

Stretch run begins for fall teams (Ed. Note: For the complete South Portland-Deering girls’ soccer and Scarborough-Cheverus field hockey game stories, please visit theforecaster. net) By Michael Hoffer With the colors changing and the temperatures dipping, it’s clear that fall is in the air. With September about to give way to October, it won’t be long until we’re talking about the postseason for local athletes. The golf regular season ends this week, we’re just a couple weeks out from the start of the cross country postseason and soccer, field hockey and volleyball are closer to the end of their regular seasons than the beginning. Here’s a glimpse at where teams stand and what’s to come.

Boys’ soccer Scarborough is first in the Western Class A Heal Points standings with a 6-0-2 record after downing visiting Bonny Eagle (5-0) and host Deering (3-1). Against the Scots, Sam Cekada, Austin Downing, Kenny Hodgdon, Max Ornstein and Trevor Sparda had the goals. At the Rams, the Red Storm trailed at halftime, but came to life in the second half, pulling even when Downing, on his birthday, scored with 29:51 to go. The

go-ahead tally came with 15:19 showing, courtesy a rebound goal from Wyatt Omsberg. Scarborough kept the pressure on and clinched it with 12:33 to play when Chris Cowie scored on a corner kick. “The last 15 minutes of the first half, we played really, really well,” said Red Storm coach Mark Diaz. “We passed well and moved off the ball and created opportunities. We hit the post twice. Their keeper made some nice saves. We just said, ‘In the second half, let’s do the same thing.’ It was about composure today. Three weeks ago, we would have panicked. We might not have won. We stayed composed and chipped away. When we got opportunities, we hit them. There was no let up. We’re not there yet, but we’re coming.” Scarborough has perhaps its last big regular season test Saturday night when defending Class A champion Windham pays a visit in a rematch of last year’s regional final. “Windham will be a good barometer for how good we might be,” said Diaz. The Red Storm goes to Noble Tuesday. South Portland is 5-1-2 and fourth in Western A after a 2-1 loss at Windham and a 1-1 home

draw with Kennebunk. In the loss, Danny Fox had the goal. A goal late in the first half from Damjan Draskovic (assisted by Robert Graff) gave the Red Riots an advantage over the Rams, but Kennebunk tied the score with 31:35 to to and the teams settled for a tie. South Portland was at Bonny Eagle Thursday and goes to Gorham Tuesday. The Red Riots have been eliminated from the playoffs in each of the past two years by the Rams. Cape Elizabeth suffered a tough 1-0 home loss to Greely Friday, on a penalty kick, but bounced back for a 5-1 victory at Lake Region Monday. Florian Krause had two goals, while Eli Breed, Cole Caswell and Kayne Munson each scored once. The Capers (11th in Western A) are at York Thursday and play at Greely Tuesday. In Western D, Greater Portland Christian School is ninth in the Heals at 4-3 after losses at A.R. Gould (2-1) and Chop Point (3-0). Ethan Spaulding had the lone goal against A.R. Gould. James Perkins made 10 saves. The Lions were at Islesboro Thursday, go to A.R. Gould Monday and host Chop Point Wednesday.

continues to lead the way even though the Red Storm finally surrendered a goal. Scarborough improved to 7-0 Tuesday with a 2-1 home win over Deering. The Red Storm got goals from Sarah Martens and Jess Meader. The first goal Scarborough has given up this season was on a late penalty kick. The Red Storm is tied with Windham in the Western A Heals and hosts the Eagles Saturday. First, Scarborough went

to dangerous Thornton Academy Thursday. The Red Storm welcomes Noble Tuesday. South Portland continues to show signs of life. After a 4-0 home loss to Windham last Thursday (goalkeeper Emma Russell made 12 saves), the Red Riots nearly upset host Deering Saturday.

Scarborough junior Jake MacDonald makes a tackle on Deering’s Kenny Sweet during the teams’ contest last Friday night. The Red Storm rallied for a 28-21 victory.

By Michael Hoffer Scarborough’s football team survived a scare to stay unbeaten Friday night. The Red Storm trailed almost the whole way at winless Deering, but saved its best for last to rally for a 28-21 triumph. Scarborough, which entered the game 3-0, having never beaten the Rams, fell behind quickly when Deering’s Kenny Sweet returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. The Red Storm tied the game, 7-7, on a short TD run from Dan LeClair. After a Sweet touchdown run put the Rams back on top, 14-7, another LeClair scoring run made it a 14-13 game at halftime. Sweet pushed the lead to 21-13 with a TD run, but Scarborough tied the game on a punt return for a touchdown from Ben Greenberg and a LeClair two-point rush. Late in the fourth quarter, Dillon Russo’s short TD run finally gave the Red Storm the lead and it went on to the victory. Scarborough hopes to stay undefeated Saturday, but it will have a mighty hill to climb when it goes to 4-0 powerhouse Thornton Academy. The Red Storm is 0-7 all time against the Golden Trojans, including a 28-14 loss last fall in Saco. Cape Elizabeth was also pushed at Falmouth, but managed to even its record at 2-2. The Capers fell behind the host Yachtsmen, 14-0, in the first continued page 19

Recap from previous page

with six saves from Russell, held up until less than 10 minutes to play when the Rams pulled even. They scored again on a corner kick with just over three minutes remaining to win, 2-1. “I thought we played our best game of the season by far,” South Portland coach Andy Pappas said. “I thought we did a good job of keeping (Deering) to two

goals. They have a lot of firepower. It’s always a battle. Jenacee did a great job getting us a lead at the half.” The Red Riots got back in the win column Tuesday with an impressive 4-3 victory at Kennebunk. Shae O’Brien had a hat trick and Bradley also scored. Russell made eight saves, including stopping a pair of penalty kicks, as South Portland improved to 3-6 (15th in Western A, where 13 teams make the playoffs). The Red Riots are home against Bonny Eagle Friday and host Gorham Tuesday.

September 28, 2012

“We’re playing a tough schedule,” Pappas said. “A lot of teams are very good. We’re battling with everybody. We’re capable. It’s just a matter of getting some breaks. We don’t seem to get a lot of breaks.” Cape Elizabeth is riding a seven-game win streak and is fourth in Western A after recent victories at Greely (1-0) and at home over Lake Region (6-0). Against the Rangers, Addison Wood had the goal. Wood also scored twice against the Lakers, while Montana Braxton, Kathryn Clark, Sarah O’Connor and Talley Perkins added goals. The Capers hosted York Thursday and welcomes Greely Tuesday.

In Western D, GPCS is sixth at 0-5 after falling, 11-0, to visiting Richmond Monday. The Lions go to Vinalhaven Friday.

Field hockey

Scarborough’s field hockey team is still undefeated and is now the team to beat after a decisive and impressive 4-0 win at until-then unbeaten Cheverus Friday afternoon. The Red Storm grabbed a 1-0 lead just 2 minutes, 7 seconds in when Emily Bunting scored on a rebound. Five minutes later, off a penalty corner, Rachael Wallace finished and after Scarborough’s superb defense fended off four

Recap from previous page straight Cheverus corners, the Red Storm broke it open on Katie Granzier’s goal for a 3-0 halftime lead. Scarborough never let up in the second half and with 11:51 to play, Karli-An Gilbert delivered the coup de grace as the Red Storm went on to a 4-0 win. “We were all pumped for this,” said Bunting. “We’d been waiting for this. Everyone on this team does a great job. We’re strong and close. At halftime, coach said, ‘Imagine it’s a 0-0 game. Stay with them.’ We did.” “It’s just a big fat wow!” said Scarborough coach Kerry Mariello. “We knew it would be a tough game. The girls were hyped. You never know how they’ll respond in a situation like this. I’m proud of each one of them. It was a full team effort.” Another shutout was in the books. “This is our eighth straight game without any goals being scored on us,” Gove said. “Shutting them out feels so good.” “It’s not necessarily the defense, it’s all 11 players who have done the job,” Mariello added. “They know how valuable possession of the ball is. They have great vision. They read the ball well and they know what to do with it when they get it.” The Red Storm made it nine wins in a row with another shutout Tuesday, 3-0, at Gorham. Ellen Walker, Maddie Dobecki and Grace Whalen had the goals. Scarborough (first in the Western A Heals) hosted Thornton Academy Thursday, welcomes Windham Saturday, goes to improved Deering Monday and hosts Noble Wednesday of next week. The Red Storm closes the regular year Oct. 5 at Kennebunk. “We know other teams will be up for us,” Mariello added. “We need to continue to grow and expand on what we’re doing. No one’s ever perfect. We want to be the best we can be and be there in that

City Council from page 1 Doucette and City Manager James Gailey said they brought the amendment forward because of complaints from neighbors of several properties. Doucette said she lacked the proper legal methods to resolve complaints and enforce cleanups on residential properties. Supporters of the amendment, including real estate agent April Tracy, Columbus Street resident Barbara Perry, Wythburn Road resident Scott Day and former Kirkland Avenue resident James Wallace, said an abatement ordinance would improve real estate values and enhance Doucette’s efforts to enforce codes and ordinances. Tracy and Wallace said they have been unable to sell, or had to reduce prices on properties, because the buildings are adjacent to nuisance properties where owners skirt yard sale restrictions or rely on building permits to justify a messy yard. Daggett and Mayor Patti Smith emphasized the need for clear safety, public health and environmental justifications for declaring any property a nuisance. A provi-

to move to the country,” Irving, 91, recalled. “When I moved, I didn’t know why the heck I moved.” By then, Garner had married her husband John Garner, a part owner of the Kezar Falls Woolen Co. John Garner and Clifford Irving were both U.S. Navy veterans of World War II. “He would walk down the street and I would look at him, and he would look at me,” Pauline Garner recalled about their introduction. John Garner was 30 when he married her in 1942. She was 16. “They said it would never last,” she recalled. ‘We were married 69 years.” Irving and Garner met at Keswick Club 5 meetings in Kezar Falls. The community

sion for “unsightly and offensive accumulations or conditions” was removed from the proposed amendment before Monday’s workshop. “The city does not want to be regulating aesthetic issues,” Daggett advised.

Public vs. private In other business, councilors also reviewed rules governing executive sessions, limits on disclosure of what is discussed in the sessions, and when public votes are required after executive sessions. After the workshop, Smith said the discussion was about “educating each other to work with the correct process.” The Maine Freedom of Access Law requires executive sessions to be approved by a three-fifths majority of a governing body, which much cite specific reasons for the private deliberations. Executive sessions can be called to discuss property sales, labor negotiations, personnel matters, student suspensions or expulsions, legal matters and litigation, and discussion of governing body or agency records shielded by law from public view. Part of the council discussion centered on whether councilors who publicly speak service club still exists. Among its services are scholarships for Sacopee Valley High School students. Then and now, the area was populated by generations of established families. “I wasn’t related to a soul,” Irving said. “You had to be careful about what you would say about anybody.” Shortly after the Irvings arrived in 1947, western York and Oxford counties were consumed by wildfires that destroyed adjacent towns like Brownfield, Waterboro and Newfield. Clifford Irving was called to Newfield to try and protect phone lines while Eleanor remained in Kezar Falls. “I still remember sparks hitting the front lawn,’ she said. John Garner helped fight the fires, while Pauline packed the car and prepared to

about executive sessions could face censure, but no conclusions were reached on amending council rules. Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis disagreed with Daggett on when the council must take public votes on items discussed in executive sessions, and objected to what she thought are council actions taken in executive sessions. The section governing executive sessions specifically prohibits governing bodies and agencies from making final votes or decisions on “an ordinance, order, rule, resolution, regulation, contract, appointment or other official action” behind closed doors. While declining to elaborate specifically, De Angelis said she felt there have been times when the council should have voted in public after an executive session. “In my view, and I am clearly in the minority, I’m not convinced what we are doing is OK,” De Angelis said. “I’m saying when there is a decision that requires an expenditure of public money, we are obligated to let the public know.”

flee town. Better times ensued, the couples spent vacations traveling and time in Pine Point at a home owned by the Garners. Garner had five children and Irving had three. When they delivered their youngest children, they were together in the hospital. The mill was sold almost 50 years ago, and the couples eventually moved from Kezar Falls. Garner and Irving joined the Scarborough Garden Club and Scarborough Library Association and volunteered for 20 years at Maine Medical Center in Portland. “Most anything you can think of, we did it together,” Irving said. Clifford Irving died 24 years ago. The Garners moved to Scarborough Terrace a couple of years ago as they began to have health problems. John Garner, who had

Daggett said councilors are not bound by the law to conduct public votes on everything discussed in executive session. She said they have not made closed-door decisions. “The City Council has never taken final actions in executive session, no matter what some councilors say,” Daggett said. Maine Municipal Association spokesman Eric Conrad said it was improper to comment on the specific workshop, but in general, association training for public officials stresses the need for open votes. “We do tell councilors and selectboard members that final actions should be done in public,” Conrad said. But decisions to continue discussions and the fact that sides may be drawn in private discussions do not violate the law or always require public disclosure. “If they are having a robust discussion behind closed doors,” Conrad said, “it can become apparent how most councilors feel about things.” David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or Follow him on Twitter: @ DavidHarry8.

dementia, died at age 98 in February 2011. Irving lives in South Portland when not making temporary stays at Scarborough Terrace. This year, she stayed for a month; last year, it was three months. The passing years have taken friends and family from their lives, and Garner said she does not necessarily miss country life. “The area and the people are not the same,” she said. What remains the same is the friendship Garner and Irving share. “I have someone to tell my travels and woes to,” Irving said. “I guess it’s a lifetime affair,” Garner said.

I’m very much hoping that bond passes; we still have a huge problem if it doesn’t.”

A project she is particularly proud of is the development of the Green Belt management plan, which was wrapped up earlier this year. “It was a lot of fun because it was helping the town in its stewardship of open spaces and actually categorized all them,” she said. “I think it was a really productive effort.” A common challenge Sullivan anticipates seeing for years to come is the budgeting process.

“I think overall it’s going to be dollars, because this recession hasn’t gotten any better,” she said. “Stewardship of tax dollars is my primary concern.” Election Day voting is from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. in the Cape Elizabeth High School gym. Absentee ballots will be available approximately 30 days before the election.
